my ear piercings that i've had since i was a child have been very tender this year and now they straight up got infected... i have other ear piercings too and nothing has happened to them but i've only worn simple earrings that i bought from jewelry shops on those. on the ones that got infected i've been wearing stuff i ordered from china. this sucks, i can't be sure that the cheap earrings are at fault but it's very likely.

If there was a better consolidated site for lolita content I'd have left this shithole years ago. I don't use SM much and this is the only place I consistently get brand updates and "discussion" (I use that term loosely).

as of late i've seen a good fair amount of cosplay threads vs lolita threads, there's been tons of new ones lately with all the cons popping up too. the problem is that the con ones don't gain traction until close to/during the con and the cosplay threads that do get the most replies are the coomer ones which literally don't make discussion lol.

True. Coomers everywhere. I want to discuss convention related stuff without fearing being cancelled, which something that in our business is quite common lmao
>>
I'm gonna say it here to not create a thread
This is extremely /pol/ but what will be the impact of the war on Ukraine in cosplay?

I fear that Russophobia, Sinophobia and anything and anyone who has a positive light on Russia will be cancelled like if they raped someone at a comic con.

The USA will lose its great economic status and thus will not be the goal for us cosplayers outside of the country to one day to go to a huge convention in the USA, which is a role model when it comes down to having and maintaining an environment where comic cons can be held safely and peacefully.

Thank God that in my area and my cosplay fandom is made of people with little to no prejudice and thus phobias of any find do not get to grow (even because Russians in my area are rare, and these people who openly support Russia who write the letter Z in anything and similar types simply are rare besides specific political groups and there's simply no space for political discussion about it in my area).
>>
>>10769004
>these people who openly support Russia who write the letter Z in anything and similar types simply are rare besides specific political groups
This is completely unrelated, but I so wish that was the case in Russia. The amount of people gobbling up state propaganda and openly supporting the war is insane. Clown world.

You could try messaging the seller and returning the dress to get your money back
>>
>>10769039
It's not the seller's fault something didn't fit them, they can just resell it themselves
>>
>>10768608
Every board claims to have a discord cabal that's making it worse, you learn to just ignore it after a while
>>
>>10769042
Have you ever returned something to a store that didn't fit? It's nobody's fault, it's just a thing that happens and maybe the seller would be understanding who knows.
>>
>>10768931
Wild idea here but sell it and recoup your costs?
>>
>>10769036
Well. I spoke to a cosplayer friend in Russia. He doesn't like the Z totting but he said he understands the reason for the war on the Russian side.

I fear that this conflict will invalidate the wide globalization of people and traditions... I mean, cosplay is everywhere - people in the US often get foreigner cosplayer visitors from throughout the world... And that is at stake.
>>
>>10769088
independent sellers are not the same as a clothing store

>>10769127
was from closetchild, i don't know their return policy but it'd probably be stupid to go through the shipping costs for that anyway. if i sell it i'll just list it on lm.

thanks anons, i probably will sell it, or wear it with a binder or something. was just posting in the feels thread to share the dissapointment of being super excited for a piece and then not having it fit.
>>
>>10769181
*try to wear it with a binder or minimizer bra or something. i'm still not sure if it'd actually work haha
>>
>>10769181
What dress was it? I'm a tallita who loves gobelin
>>
i got it on with a binder, it's still super uncomfortable and unflattering(not to mention i don't wanna damage it by forcing it) due to the fact that im 5'11, the waist is at my ribs, and i can't really change my ribcage :( i have been losing weight to fit into more old pieces recently so maybe someday, but probably not. i think the issue is just with my bone structure, i don't know if i could fit comfortably in it even if i was super underweight, since im average right now.
apologies for the blogpost.

>>10769339
But I am genuinely cool. I do cosplay events, take pictures that are cool and nice.... No girl has ever approached me wanting me to some degree.

Yes it's true I'd like a cosplay gf but, it's like people look at me and see a being that is cool, known in his area, has great transit among groups but doesn't have sex appeal at all.

Yes I'm a soft man....

He's 27 and I'm 32. And even though he's a normie he's still cute. I'm just self conscious about getting older, it's hard enough trying to look cute and elegant and prevent skin damage.

So annoyed with japonica rn. I clicked "If an item(s) is sold out, contact me before purchasing" on a mercari order, but they emailed me the next day to say "it's difficult to contact people before buying it on mercari because items can be sold out during the contacting process, can we buy the items without contacting you?" Ummm aren't you contacting me right now about something dumb I didn't ask about? Just buy the damn items as they're both still available. Doesn't it mean that have to contact me if one of the items is sold?:/

I feel a little bad and sad because of the increasing desire to sell a big chunk of my wardrobe. I'm used to dipping in and out of lolita to a small extent - maybe wearing it 2-3x a month versus 2-3x a week, but I'm just less interested than I used to be. I don't really care to check the used sites, and I only find myself actively interested in lolita for a day or two out of every month. My entire friend group in this area was formed on the basis of us being lolitas though; I live rurally and there's not really anyone else I can connect with in person. I kind of want to cancel the meets I've agreed to plan, sell a bunch of my rare pieces, and go on a spending spree of books and vintage clothing.

>>10769353
I'm 31 and my bf is 26. I actually look younger than him though his skin is in better condition than mine because I get hormonal acne.. Anyway those few years won't matter if he's a decent person and wants something serious too.

>>10769347
>No girl has ever approached me
Fat. Lol.
>>
>>10769349
I have. But they all see me as friends. Of course, I don't force anything on them, the interest should spring from her part and not just me. I'm also an active member of my community, I go around etc. It's just that i'm the youngest in my group and mostly everyone dates someone already.
I honest feel like i'm going to be forever single. Although my biggest suffering is because I don't have someone who shares my passion for the media I like and would like to have sex with costumes on. I don't disclose that, but, the thought is in my head. Who knows if women 'smell' i'm not a good person for a relationship and walk away.
If they don't want me, screw it, i'll die as single as it get, and get written in my tombstone 'Died without dating anyone ever'.
>>10769485
Never for romantic reasons. I feel like i'm a walking teddy bear. They probably think I can't have sex, or i'm gay, or i'm religious, gotta be that.

He's not part of the group but he's been to our events.
Bear in mind this group I'm part of is well known, so, there's a bit of a reputation to hold, too.
>>
>>10769789
Hmmm that's a dicey situation. She might just be being flirty with you cuz she knows your single and all, I've had female friends do that with me, I think it's a way to kinda give us some encouragement to get out there.
She might be into you, if that's the case it's pretty precarious. If you do make moves even if successful it could fuck up the group alot. Second let's say she is into you and you do wind up hooking up, you want her to leave her husband for you? If she left her husband for you she could very well do that for another person. If you do go down that route I'd say be cautious and slow and steady.
Either way I hope your next event goes well and everyone has fun.
>>
>>10769809
>I think it's a way to kinda give us some encouragement to get out there.

Now that you say it, it might be something like that, she is overall very supportive.

I don't think she would leave her husband for me and whatnot, it might be somethinglike, when you watch porn, wish you had that person, and then the feeling goes away? Or when you have a nice car and you look at another nice car and wish you had the two of them?

Either way I consider this as an absolute great thing - shows I am attractive enough that a married woman finds me attractive.

I'm going to have an event with her and other friends tomorrow, but I think it will be fine.
>>
>>10769685
what if she's just trying to be nice to you because you're friends and she chose that character just because you like her without meaning it in a flirty way if you get what i mean. i think it would be dangerous to assume she's flirting with you because what if she's genuinely not doing that
>>
>>10769825
Awesome. Yeah I think that makes sense. Its good you got some good friends there anon not everyone has that. I'm sure you'll meet a lady at somepoint. It sounds like this friend might be a good wingman too, having women as wingmen is honestly pretty great.
>>
>>10769829
I'm not assuming she is flirting with me exactly because she is married with two kids. I would never never do any advance on someone who is engaged with someone.

I prefer to take this situaiton with a positive angle, that someone older than me encourages me in such a way, encouraging me to 'get out there' to some degree.

>>10769833
I'm not sure to which point she would be my wingman, but, I think she would possibly help me out. Besides we have a good synergy and it is why we are friends and enjoy a great talk whenever we meet.

>prostitutes

I'm not going to lose the last bit of self love and honor I still have.
I personally believe that using prostitute services when you are a person that cannot get a girl on her own to desire you so hard they want to have sex with you is immoral and deviant.

I'll die a virgin if I have to but I will not hire a prostitute, not even if she is a cosplayer.
>>
>>10771017
Fair enough. It is an exploitive relationship, but so is all work here, but there's difference in having to flip burgers to feed your family and suck cocks.
>>
>>10771020
Yeah. I don't want that in my life. I tried to have sex before, didn't work out because everything I did i'd apologize and I only got it hard enough for a blowjob when we both put the costume on.

I'm different, anon, I know what I am. Prostitutes would be a waste of money.

Was thinking the same a long time
But when I was 26, I really wanted to have sex
And I had the money
I must admit, it was awkward, the prostitute was kinda "complicated", and it wasn't as great as I thought it would be, but I would still do it again

A tip from me, do nofap a few days before you go to one
>>
>>10771048
I shall try again but only with a 'regular person'. I refuse to pay to go another time and fail miserably.

>>10771056
The problem isn't nofap. I'm literally autist and if things are off my active attention (hyperfocus), they don't interest me at all. And telling people you are autist does not help at all, they get weirded out and find excuses to not go with you, because there are millions of chubby cosplayer nerds out there.
>>

Ok, some prostitutes would have also problems with that...

Buy some Viagra online.

>>
>>10771061
I know, bro.That is an issue. Next week i'll get professional help and see if I can do something about my restricted tastes.

>>10771066
Viagra may be a temporary solution, but I dunno. I'm not a man that gets one night stands, i'm too precious (literally, those in my cosplay community value me a lot as an example of behavior) for sexual only moments... and at the same time I don't feel like i'd connect with someone enough to have sex with them if it isn't quasi dating (aka fucking someone who cosplays or is a nerd too).

This is why i'm going to get therapy back, i'm obviously complicated.
>>
>>10771068
I think you have the right idea anon. I talked to my doctor about not being able to get hard for some of my early sexual encounters and he said that's normal and it's because I'm nervous.
I think your going the right route and trying with someone special too, they will work with you.

Nervousness. Hmmm. I see. Perhaps even for one night stands I need someoen special enough? As in, understanding enough to know I have a disability and to lower their expectations? Perhaps. I dunno. I know i'm special. My friends told me so, and I know i'm a special fella. Only fair that the girl that decides to have sex with me should be special enough.

She's on the same wavelength as me, when it comes to humor, sex and politics. I redpilled her about a lot of things, so she quickly turned from a green-voting left-winger to a third positionist.

>>10771350
you can always cosplay older characters like, imperial officers for example
>>
>>10771352
Those guys don't get pussy tho
>>
>>10771358
I know, I cosplay that character
>>
>>10771360
Ooff.
I'm sure you are part of an org but if I was hunting for star wars tang and was older I would do like older Han Solo or older McGregor Obi Wan.
>>
>>10771361
Yeah, i'm part of the 501st. I'm not there to get girls - everyone is married or dates someone except for me. Again, i'm not there with them to get girls.

I guess these two would get you some chicks tho.
Or the Mandalorian. I mean, Din Djarin.
>>
>>10771363
To complement my old post, I cosplay things without any sex appeal:

>a power ranger whom i cannot say what one
>imperial officer
>stormtrooper
>jawa

Gee no wonder why no girls want me
>>
>>10771365
Jawas are hot AF.

>>10771352
I'm not really a Star Wars guy, and it's less about the cosplay anyway, more about how easy it is to bumble your way into sex and relationships as a young guy who gets the benefit of the doubt while everybody expects you to have your game on point as an older guy and making the wrong move can have pretty bad fallout. Personally I kinda screwed myself by getting into an LTR at 22 and missing all the years where I was supposed to be refining my technique, so once I got out of it at the end of my 20s I was fucked.
>>
>>10771365
Girls don’t like stormtroopers? I mean they’re not “sexy” but that’s one of those characters with pretty universal appeal and people always want to take pictures with them.
>>
>>10771403
yeah
and the costume is hot af. you sweat a lot.

>>10771404
Oh, I see. Your issue is more of a 'personal' thing, but I feel you. I kinda feel like i'll get older and not have all that technique people expect from older people, but at least I can pull the "i'm literally autist" card and people will be chill about it. On your end, i'd just not say you had a LTR, just a normal relationship. People will understand.

>>10771405
They do, but I find it a hassle to wear the armor set. It's quite movement restrictive and I need to redo a lot of velcro straps and other elements used to get things in place.

Plus my Jawa gets more or less the same amount of people wanting to take pictures while being way more comfortable.
>>
>>10771407
Another complement in my post: I go to sleep now with, for now, peace of mind. I may not have a hot enough cosplay gf like some of my legion friends, or a cosplayer wife like some others. Hell, I don't even know if I have to have one at some day. I'm someone too used to the freedom of being single, aka masturbating a lot, doing roleplays with girls and guys on the internet go satisfy my urges, watch straight, tranny and gay porn on each period of the day and jerk off to each of them... And I pretty much select a lot of my porn. I can't cum if both are naked or the video thumb and name didn't interess me. Typical - to only do what you want.

I'm not sure how would it be when I just couldn't be like that. I may not be designed to have a partner. And that's ok. I say it with the peace of mind, of someone peacefully dying.

See you later, folks. God bless.
>>
>>10771411
You know you might be gay. That's fine. Honestly probably alot easier to hook up with guys.

I think it's relatively normal for mid-30s single guys, especially ones like me who ended up this way through a failed relationship or marriage.
That aside, I don't think talking about past relationships really makes a difference one way or another, trying to hook up or date is a minefield with a million ways to fuck up and only one way to get it right and I don't think women care if I've got a reason for fucking it up, just that I fucked up and some other guy didn't.

I have a group of con friends who are, realistically, my only friends at this point. Unfortunately, I've been getting less interested in drinking while they keep going more & more into it (& most of them aren't partying or doing anything, just drinking & hanging out) & I've been having less & less fun hanging with them, but I don't want to lose my only friends/don't have any clue how to make new friends (let alone con friends) at this age

Why do people generally make jokes about fat people cosplaying?

Fictional example. Guy cosplays Shaggy. People go and say "Shaggy ate too much scooby snacks" "shaggy ate scooby itself" Shaggy fat" "shaggy cholesterol"

Why?
>>
>>10772499
Oh, that's just because fat people disgust me on an instinctual level and as a society we shouldn't tolerate such an unhealthy lifestyle, because I want my people to look beautiful.

Not to mention all that wasted fabric. It's partly China's fault for catering to them bc ain't no fatty gonna make their own costume

that reminds me of my ex gf. her parents hated cosplaying and found that activity to be done only by people who had nothing better to do and people without jobs (their family was composed of IRS directors who make a lot of money).

part of the reason we broke up was exactl that, they would always nmake fun of it and even forbid her from going to events.

My ex and I kind of had the opposite problem with my parents. We really preferred to keep our cosplay completely separate from our "real" lives and my parents didn't understand that at all, and were insistent on telling everybody they knew about it.
>>
>>10772512
Wow. I complain alot about my life but I feel pretty fortunate with my folks.
Even before I got into cosplay and anime my dad ran into a convention when he was on vacation once. He loved it he took pictures with cosplayers and stuff. When I told him I was into he thought it was cool.
>>
>>10772681
Well, that's on you - I do tell people who deserve to know of my cosplay hobby, to be honest.

Your parents do this probably because they're proud of you.

>>10772682
I think the problem in my ex's family was being so rich and powerful (IRS after all) that they had the luxury to find things a waste of time and no one can say otherwise.

My dad in my first years of cosplaying helped me a lot. Went to me to various events and even won a honor to merit certificate from our local 501st legion unit.

I cosplay & am decent looking so I'll probably give that a shot if they are alone (though the series are like admittedly aren't as popular as they used to be). I just feel uncomfortable initiating conversations with randos at cons unless they are cosplaying some series I'm into/I'm ultra impressed with the costume because I feel like I'm intruding on them (the Midwestern Catholic tendencies I grew up with are a bitch to break). Online communities for cons/cosplay in my local area are all pretty dead so I can't do much to re-create how I met all my current friends unfortunately.
>>10772498
I feel the same way. Like if they wanted to go party, meet new people, go to a concert/rave or do an activity I'd be all for it. As it stands, it's just drinking until someone has a emotional breakdown which just isn't fun & I don't understand why I pay so much to go to a con to see them do.

I try to retrain my brain, if I see them snuggling or something i will think ‘good for them they look happy’ instead of internalizing and asking myself why i don’t have it.

And i also made some friends with new people who are single which helps a lot. And you can ask if they know anyone else single they could set you up with

How do you Americans feel about foreigners at your cons?

They're planning to have a j-fashion meetup in a city only 8+ hours away, but I don't have any j-fashion so I can't go. But even if I did, I won't have a passport until some time in August at the very earliest. But even if I had a passport, it'd probably be awkward and I'd probably be unwanted because I'm a male, and judging by their pictures, everyone in the group are female.
And just let me rant about the passport thing a little bit, they SAY you don't need a passport to travel in Europe, but then they require you to be able to prove who you are, and the only valid proof is a passport. It's all a lie.

buy the clothes and wear them then, not hard to understand
>>
>>10774341
I'd need to understand the different styles so it doesn't become a mishmash of different styles or inauthentic, and I'd need to find something that I both like, and that I could wear. I also have some mental hangups about jfashion and fashion in general that I'd need to get over, and I should probably learn how to dress well too.

It's not that easy.

Most styles I'm interested in look like I can't wear them anyway.
>>
>>10774384
Nothing wrong with admiring the styles whilst accepting that it's not practical for you to fill your closet with them. This board is a good place to find new styles, but it overcomplicates jfashion a LOT. Literally just buy a piece that matches stuff you already own and can imagine yourself wearing.

Also don't nerf yourself by caring about whether the internet would like your outfit. It literally doesn't matter.

Going to a convention this weekend. I don't care about touhou any more, but I like the memories of having liked it so I'm going to put on the dress.

>>
>>10774600
They're silly looking homemade touhou dresses. While I am proud of having made it and of the end products, there's a very specific niche where it's passable and I'm caring less about it nowadays. While I'm sure I could wear them to more cons, I won't care enough to much longer. Is this the part of my life where I gradually lose everything I once was passionate about and turn into my mother?
>>
Most likely a dumb idea to post this, but I want to get it off my chest and see if anyone else has this issue.
I hate that lolita makes me look so chunky. I am anorexic and in “normal” clothing I look like it, yet when I put on a coord often I feel like I look very ..busty? and wide? I don’t think this is common either as I’ve seen anorexic girls in lolita who still look just as sickly. Are my clothes just ill fitting? They are often roomy in the chest area so maybe this causes it? Or has the dysmorphia really just gotten that bad? Who knows, but it makes wearing lolita really difficult.
>>
>>10774651
are you tall? If JSK bodices are hitting your ribcage/underbust instead of your waist it can make you look a lot wider
>>
>>10774669
I am! Though interestingly it seems the dresses that actually hit my waist make me look the bulkiest? I don’t think it’s a problem with my waist because I physically don’t think I can get it smaller... Yet manages to look crazy wide in lolita. It is genuinely confusing me?
>>
>>10774651
Another skellychan here. Lolita has lots of layers and thick fabrics going on that you won't see in a millimeter of t-shirt jersey.
Roomy chests absolutely make me look awful. If the waist has a lot of gathering or shirring it's gonna bulk up that area for sure. I also thought I could get away with giant blouses since they'd be hidden by the jsk anyway, but ofc it's gonna bunch up under there. Some brands are closer fitting than other, like Mary Magdalene and ETC. I heard Meta is good too, I was thinking of getting something like that for my next dress.

What have you been wearing?
>>
>>10774555
But if it's not a specific style it may not even be jfashion? Jfashion is cool, and if it's not proper jfashion I'd also not be accepted in jfashion contexts. I guess wearing nice clothes could be satisfying in itself, but especially if I try to do some of the more radical things, like doing decora like stuff but end up wearing something that's not decora at all, then I'd just look like a huge failure.
I do find your words reassuring though, despite my criticisms, thank you.

It's sad when there are things I like that I can't wear, even if realistically speaking I'd never wear it anyway.
Working from what I already own might be good advice, a good place to start. There was one style that I wanted to wear that I thought about that approach just to get started.
Thank you!

My friend hasn't spoken to me since I told him I follow his hot sister's Onlyfans. Should I have not?

Anorexic girls only look like it in lolita if they're about to die and very, very gaunt limbs/face, because those are the only exposed parts (and even then, frilly OTKs hide bony knees and boots hide bony ankles. Lolita imo is one of the fashions that's best at hiding unhealthily underweight bodies, because it's bulky, not clingy, and you can't see the usual things that people subconsciously notice like protruding shoulderblades/ribcage/hip bones etc.
>>
>>10774799
It is odd to me though because I have seen girls on instagram who look like me, like their body type, yet in lolita they still look it!
>>
>>10774718
Oh yeah, my blouses tend to be big so that could contribute. It’s like they feel floaty on me usually.
I like to wear BTSSB (dresses anyway) but I swear it makes me feel the bulkiest.. I wonder if it really is the blouse bunching?
>>
>>10774922
Could be that sweet has a more voluminous and heavy silhouette in general, compared to something like classic or gothic. A lot more ruffles, gathers, layers of lace, more exaggerated puff/michelin man sleeves, more voluminous skirts, often less tailored bodices etc. I definitely notice that I look bigger in old school sweet than I do when I put together more toned down, elegant coords. Either way, I can only speculate, and it's entirely possible that it's all in your head. I know I thought I looked obese in lolita when I was underweight and struggling with an ED, and it put me off wearing the fashion for a while, so please seek help if you think you need it and if it's available to you.
>>
>>10774930
Thank you, I really appreciate this - it’s mainly old school sweet for me too so it’s really relieving that I’m not alone in that. I may just have to get used to it and accept it rather than drive myself nuts over it desu…

posting here because it's been a journey.

>lolita from my comm (circa 2009) dies suddenly from a seizure after some kind of softball incident
>changes the group completely forever.
>meet-ups become infrequent, no longer posting about LJ sales, chatroom becomes dead, etc.
>everyone slowly begins to realize that she was pretty much the most knowledgeable and tuned into the fashion, and was pretty much keeping it alive
>coords were definitely the best in the group, was super nice and even had a "borrow coord" set aside for newbies in the comm who were interested in trying it out. they could wear it to the first meet before deciding to buy their own stuff.
>shitty family didn't get how important lolita was to her and thought we just wanted her clothes when we offered we would price point everything and sell it for them.
>we go to the memorial service in mostly MMM and some of her relatives give us the stink eye.
>mega religious, and the service mentioned how they hoped she'd "repented" beforehand because she had at one point lived with a boyfriend.
>fast forward almost 12 years later, I see a dress on LM
>it's the dream dress she owned
>I say fuck it and buy it.
>get it in the mail and notice it has tags too.
>see a little scribble in the corner
>it's her initials


She used to initial her tags because she lent out her stuff pretty often. I messaged the seller and found out that it's her little cousin who knew some things about j-fashion because of her, and found the storage containing her dresses. She's slowly selling them to better homes instead them sitting in her aunt/uncle's basement. Sobbed.

i feel like i've ignored her mentally over the years, but im getting a bunch of us together for a memorial meet of our own and we'll hopefully have bought everything by then and be wearing her dresses. i genuinely know it's what she would've wanted.
>>
>>10774799
At the height of my ED I would specifically wear my lolita around my mom. She would do that thing where, during a hug, she'd feel for my ribs and complain about how thin I was. When I wore lolita, she couldn't tell.

>>10774921
Limbs and all? It's very likely your dysmorphia lol

>>10774932
Old school is covered in ruffles and lace that would absolutely hide anyone's frame
>>
>>10775076
That's crazy, nonny. I'm so glad that you were able to get your hands on this memory of her. What a blessing. She clearly made an impact on many lives. She sounds wonderful.

>we go to the memorial service in mostly MMM and some of her relatives give us the stink eye.
Yeah when someone in my pack died we went in our fursuits and their family was seething

being not photogenic sucks so bad, I look in the mirror and look cute, I've been complimented for my looks both in lolita and normie clothes, but I look like a goblin in every photo I take. I got tired of the time consuming task of taking a decent coord pic so I just have zero social media presence even though I'd love to be more active online

thnx anons, i was expecting some rude replies about us being in lolita at the funeral kek, pleasantly surprised.
It's weird to think how we just keep going but people who have passed on are just still like that in our memories. whenever i see an old school coord on COF i can't help but think "god she'd hate this revival" but then I'm like, "wait, would she have liked it? she fits the trajectory a little?" just a random thought.

idk, have fun in your comms, don't take shit too seriously
>>
>>10775076
I don't even know her but I'd go just to hear stories about her and help her memory live on. She sounds like an amazing role model in the community

pretty sure >>10775082 is being sarcastic, unfortunately

How much do you usually charge for sexual favors at cons?
Asking for a friend.
>>
I know I'm creepy now, but I need a female right now for watching anime or playing videogames with...
In my bed...
I know it's summer and hot, but that's my current feel right now
Anyone interested here?
>>
I am currently at a con but I'm not having much fun. At least I'm not crying I guess.
There are many people here I've met multiple times before but they either don't care for me or we're hostile. So I have barely spoken. With the people here I know we might nod or do a white people smile but nothing else. And the panels don't interest me, I hope at least the cosplay competition will be fun.
There are many people here with cool cosplays but I haven't said anything to them either.
>>
>>10775343
>white people smile
wtf?
>>
>>10775344
Yes, it's a thing that whities do smile the further west from the Germany you go.
>>
>>10775348
Why Germany of all places?
>>
>>10775352
Is France a non smiling zone too? Germany certainly is.
>>
>>10775343
Now I might actually be crying or at least I'm teary eyed.
Someone who often says hi to me and exchange a few words came up to me and talked to me for a little bit, but it was so short, I wasn't even able to ask him what he was cosplaying before his friend came and they left.
>>
>>10775343
I was also at one today, unlikely but wonder if it was the same lol.
Either way I felt the same, the one I was at relocated kind of and threw me off. The cosplays were really cool but I just felt off. Felt more cramped than other years…

I hope you managed to have a good time, wherever you were!
>>
>>10775092
I feel the same way, I think it’s common. Don’t worry to hard about it, if you like how you look in the mirror focus on that.
>>
>>10775521
Nope, we didn't go to the same convention, the one I went to hasn't changed location and it felt kinda spacious, crowded in some parts but overall plenty of room.

It didn't get much better, someone talked briefly to me (>>10775367) but that was probably the highlight of my day. I left early, before it closed, because I didn't feel like being there anymore. I did watch the cosplay competition though, the catwalk at the beginning was pretty good but many of the contest entrants weren't that fun, a bit too much talking for my taste, but there was at least one standout too.
>>
So a good friend of mine, cosplayer, has told me the secret to get girls in the cosplay field is to be chill, quiet, to not compliment them too much and treat them regularly, because this will provoke her to be intrigued why 'this guy' isn't trying to have sex with her or trying to buy feet pictures

Then I said "I've done that all my life, still didn't get girls" and then he told me I must be aware of the signs they give, and there are girls who are very discreet when they want someone.

Dammit, I wish I wasn't so fucking dumb and knew how to read the signs.
>>
>>10769004
I think you're just retarded and european
>>
>>10775603
It's useless to give advice over the internet imo, because you don't know who you are talking to. You could look like a creepy, fat mexican neckbeard with an accent that makes you sound like you have a learning disability. Or you could be a kinda handsome looking white guy, who has confidence problems.
We don't know.
>>
>>10775679
I think the advice I needed, I have heard it from my friend. I just gotta 'lay low', do my thing, treat girls without sexual intentions in mind and let it flow.

>Or you could be a kinda handsome looking white guy, who has confidence problems

Well posting a picture of me would out me, but, I have Italian heritage and i've been told by more than one person I would do a good Cal Kestis (look up the character on google)

I just learnt that I'm 3cm taller than what I've always believed, which firmly places me into tall territory. I've been thinking that, while on the taller side, I'm not that tall, and it probably won't cause major problems, but with these additional cms all that goes away. I'm tall.
>>
>>10777248
Are you a girl or a boy? Might want to double check your new BMI too. You might have been bumped into a different category
>>
>>10777304
I'm a boy, but I'm looking in relation to lolita numbers, I'm still short for a boy but I'd absolutely be tall for lolita, at 174.
I looked at my BMI, still overweight, but I don't think it matters because I was obviously fat and would be, even if my BMI'd told me differently. But if I ever go through with losing a lot of weight, it'll be a problem, because if I reach my final goal weight at this height I'd have an underweight BMI, whereas before I'd be considered healthy. If I do this, I think I'll just pretend I have my old height so I can reach that number. Not like I'll ever have the willpower to do it anyway.
>>
>>10777326
How'd you even miss 3 cm?

With that sort of mentality we ain't offering you jack shit. Enjoy your cats.
>>
>>10777349
I've always measured myself on my own, without specialized equipment, which could make it inaccurate. It's always ended up at 171 though so I felt secure in it. I may also not have stood with a straight enough back.
But the thing that could count the other direction is that I measured myself with shoes on today, so there's a chance I'm a bit shorter than 174 anyway. I tried measuring myself by myself again, without shoes, and got 172.
