UK cosplay plans and unnecessary bitching thread.Not going to post upcoming cons because I can’t be assed being told I missed some.God save the King and what not.
Is there any britgull discords?
>>10853345Not any that wouldn't implode with drama
>>10853345There were a few years ago. They drifted apart over drama/people etc and became separate factions and now I have no idea which is still about if at all.There’s generic discords for each con and some sort of “everything” discord full of the “I’m mad me nerp nerp nerp” posters with too many separate sections and topics so it’s seemingly dead.Go outside and have a completely unrelated hobby instead.
>>10853353It is, thanks snake fren. Have a pint and cheers to you and yours. Good luck on your Jeremy Kyle appearance. Make sure to wear the nicest tracksuit you have and bling it up with that sterling solid flat chain necklace. That looks mint on you.
>>10853330where the fuck is coronationcon on the list OP smfh
>>10853349Nothing kills a discord faster than being anal about what goes in general chat. Makes sense when you have thousands of people, but a hundred active people? actual stupidity.
>>10853345If you're not in any of them make yourself known to someone, if you're not a predator you'll get into the others. It's not a high bar.
>>10853345You dont want to be around 90% of these "people". Trust me.
>>10853431Please disregard.Either predator or enabler.Miserable worthless scum either way.
I want to put Charles and Camilla in a gas chamber together.
Any of you fuckers actually going to MCM?
>>10853660No. Thanks for asking.
mate says he wants to go to the london anime & gaming con. anyone has any references? i've got no idea about the london con scene
>>10853673Make sure it's not done by anime league, sounds liek it is, proper run by a nonce
>>10853660Britgulls only frequent independent, farm to table, vegan conventions with grass reared volunteer councils
>>10853660I don't associate with London goy MCM'ersBrum Master Race
>>10853775Obviously the worst venue, of the worst city would have the worst attendees.
>>10853838Fuck off Birmingham scitzo
>>10853660Yeah, although noticing some in my circle getting tired of it. Rising ticket costs for the same experience every time. It's a fun weekend, but nothing at the con is particularly new or exciting.
>>10853906Y'all want to get smashed together before hand?
What do you actually do at cons? I've booked to go to one in July and I'm kinda of only going to get it out of my system and I don't really like big events but I've always wanted to go to a con to say I've done it
>>10854085Sit in a corner and wonder why I go at all. All my friends stopped going in 2013 ishBasically mill around, eating sandwhich wraps and energy drinks for 3 days. Maybe buy a T-shirt.
>>10854115Better than the 30 year olds who drink too much and run around like hyperactive teens trying to recreate THAT perfect con they remember oh so clearly (but spent the entire time drunk), year after year...
>>10854117YeahPeople having fun is cringe
MCM announce when October tickets are going on sale. People in the comments bitching it's too early. Can someone explain this?
>>10854181because people are retards that don't understand that announcing it earlier has zero downsides. it's not like it sells out in 30 minutesalready booked my room 2 months ago and now the price has shot up by £200, what a surprise
I booked an anime league con before I know about all that stuff, still going but that's depressing ngl.
>>10854085I almost exclusively go to cons to get laid
>>10853330Nice thread. It would be a shame if someone hijacked it and made it about /cgl/'s unofficial bong muse, Suzupoii.
>>10854242My threaaaaad!(I don’t know that person, maybe it would make the thread better.)
>'Been going to cons since I was 13 years old'What did this bitch mean by this in the latest MCM London shilling?
>>10854117They also dont cosplay and look visibly in their late 30s. You know who you are cunts. And yea Im also referring to the 25+ yo here.
>>10854335Google it, you tech illiterate nonce.
>>10854394very nice and friendly, thank you anonno wonder our community is shit when asking a simple question gets you called a nonce
>>10854420why are you expecting nice and friendly on 4chan?and yes, you should get insulted if you need to be spoonfed something that's easily findable with a google search
>>10854426Even a Google shows up some cringe cosplayer who looks like shit
>>10853345i joined the britgul discord by accident during covid (i'm not a cosplayer) and i'd just like to take this opportunity to say hello again to all my old friends who i never really spoke to or knew.
>>10854394they likely meant: nobody knows them or cares, kys
>>10854462Looks better than you 25-30yos that look 38 and dont even cosplay.
>>10854561Fuck off coomer
>>10854328Next time come over and say hello to us instead of seething on 4chan, anon. We have disposable income, so we'll even buy you a drink if you're nice.
haven't been to MCM London in several years and will be around for Saturday and Sunday. What am I in for
>>10855154Yaoi paddles and glomping.Unless I’m out of touch.
>>10855154Bunch of normies, lots of fat guys, lots of people in wheelchair, lots of annoying parents dragging their kid around.Tons of genshin and MHA teenagers.hf anon.
>>10855154I'll be there the full weekend.For survival, here's my tips.Avoid going in around 1-3pm on the Saturday. It is absolute hell, you can't get through anywhere. Most people hang out at the trees if you're in cosplay/wanting to get some shots/see the great cosplays. Try and stay out if you can.Avoid The Fox. Pretty self explanatory. Use Sunday as your shopping day if you do that kinda thing.Don't have sex with anyone at con, should also be self explanatory.
>>10855266I have a priority ticket for Saturday just because it gives me time if I need it (will be in cosplay), but I do get it though, guess nothing has changed with it being a nightmare on Saturdays. The Fox I have been to once and to be fair it wasn't a shitty experience, but being much older now, can imagine it being even more cringeSundays are usually quite chill though and I assume that stalls still do discounts to get rid of shit? Hope so
>>10855291The Fox is a glorified school disco and the Saturday has only gotten WORSE.Sundays discounts I don't think they do anymore because it is primarily big companies that go now.
>>10855266Agree with everything here.I don't get the appeal of The Fox. £5 minimum to get in somewhere that's usually a pub and last entry is 8pm??
>>10855431Only appeal is that it's right next to the hotels and the venue itself. I'll most likely be on my own anyway so I doubt I will be going to any of those places unless coerced
>>10855468Hope you have fun anon! There's other places in the area you can drink, just nobody raves about them
>>10855468If you’re between 23-28 and not ugly, fat and cringe you can drink with pretty much anyone outside the fox all night.
>>10855830>hes not hanging out with the 16-19s
MCM October weekend ticket price is £95Is it actually worth it?
>>10856048Fuck no, literally nothing has been improved or changed in 10 years. Even £50 is pushing it.
>>10856048Nearly £120 once you include the vat handling fees and shipping. Not worth it in the slightest.
>>10856048I am admittedly going this weekend. It's not worth that at all, they are getting rid of more and more each year and charging more. £115 to stand about at the trees? I'm good. Probably go to Megacon now or even Insomnia. Plenty of other options but we still flock to MCM.
>>10856182Not that it makes a huge difference but they've clarified it's £95 including VAT, but effectively £100 with delivery & feesSeen a petition has been set up to lower prices (that's not gonna happen lol), is the community actually not going to attend anymore or instead get FOMO and buy tickets when they go on general sale? Intrigued to see if a collective 'shift' actually happens.
are the afters at MCM worth it? Tourist here, I'm debating of going but cons with just daytime events are boring as fuck
Megacon doing the Excel in January and could be considerably cheaper overall
>>10856227They’ve never run afters before afaik so guess we’ll find out
>>10856225If thats what they are charging atendees, I'm sure they are going to charge a shitload for tables. I bet the artist ally is going to be a ghost town and nobody except big companies and massive aliexpress importers will be able to table.
>>10856227No idea and it's only til 8pm. There's some shit about needing to get a free wristband from the merch kiosk to be in the after hours area apparently? Who knows if they'll actually give a shit.>>10856238Will go to this. The guy that runs it was an original MCM co-founder, went to Megacon Brum and it was decent.
>>10856283Are megacon brum and manchesters as packed as mcm(snd mcm manc before cancelled)?Im a northfag and I am not going to waste 700quid on hotels for a fuckin mcm.
>>10856328Megacon Brum was 1/3rd the attendee size of MCM Brum, and that was including the fact that it was running Tokfest alongside it. It was nice and pleasant
>>10856270They already charge over a grand for dealers tables, which to be fair most dealers make back in like an hour
>>10856375Wrong and wrong, Tokfest at Mega Brum made a lot of cosplayers pissed
>>10856422Maybe i overestimate how much trash your average congoer buys, since i hardly buy anything besides a couple of keyrings, or maybe a t-shirt or poster if i like the print (and confirm it's not stolen).Though i have to admit i do see people come out of expo carrying bags and bags, and i'm sure it's not some peoples first day of loading up on nerd shite.
>>10856426wdym wrong? is it a ghost town? what about manchester? was their first megacon also a ghost town?
>>10856328Nah, Megacon Brum is a good time. Far from rammed and it has old-school MCM vibes. Megacon Manchester I've not been to but it's apparently a bit small and shit, not worth attending unless you're local. Regarding Megacon London, you can probably get a well-priced (and refundable) hotel now before the chains catch on, and in around 12 hours we'll know the ticket price
What about the MCM after hours? Because it looks like they want to make some competition for Fox
Megacon London 2-day ticket is £48 and the hotel prices aren't ridiculous (for now)How is MCM gonna compete with this
>>10856821>only 2 days (so in reality only 1 day, who the fuck stays on a sunday)I don't know anon, not very many people will want to travel and pay hotels for something that short unless you just happen to be nearby.MCM actually gets people from all over the country and even foreigners.
>>10856955What kind of foreign person would blow their money on the crapfest of MCM? Literally every country in Europe has better and bigger events.
>>10857002No idea, I've seen foreigners go there for some demented reason.Could just be part of their london visit stay though, but I still question why any foreigner would visit this shithole compared to scotland or something, if they really wanna go to the uk.
Bit busy init
>>10857315me on the left
>>10857315everyone is outside because of how low budget the actual con is.
>>10857315I was there, it was a nice day outside to be fair. Should have stayed out there all day
>>10853345hahhahaha i got banned from a britgulls discord because it was all trannies and there were no straight normal males or females and i made fun of the trannies. it had like a 70% tranny rate and the rest were obese neckbeards, you really don't want to be around these "people".
>>10857398mate the place is full of chuds. These "trannies" youre imagining all vanished a long time ago.
imma go mcm comicon in London tomorrow (sunday), none of my friends want to go so making a thread.join this discord if u wanna go together: https://discord.gg/ntz3Gtwzno trannies/furries/fat people please. only normal people.
>>10857401the last time i joined a discord it was all guys from midlands dressing as women, there was an irl channel on their server and it was just full of dysgenic looking trannies. i sent a bunch of pictures to my irl friends and we were having a laugh :D just wanted some autistic con friends man. I don't even care if ur a chud or a poltard. at least be a normal male/female lol.
>>10857401>mate the place is full of chuds.Many of the chuds are the obese trannies that don't pass for the real thing but are still tranny with no fanny...
>Two guests already pulled out>Fringe stage can-celledAhahahahahaha, the absolute state of London conshits
>>10857410>>10857412but yea im the same person posting these, if ur not a tranny or obese ill buy u a pint if u wanna hop along tomorrow to hang out.
>>10857410what the fuck do you have against furries? Were the chillest dudes
>>10857417nigga ur right, i went to a furry event called the "london furs" once bc i was chasing a girl and people there were actually calm. it's just that i don't want to be around a guy in a full fursuit in public :D if ur a secret furry, we can share that secret together ;) but like if ur gonna show up in a fursuit that's a big no for me.
>>10857413I don't know about tranny, but I do remember that half the place called themselves non-binary but still acted like their ASAB, like it was some kind of virtue signalling copium. And in my experience online the people pretending to be puppies tend to be the wolves.
>>10857412Why is it always the fucking midlands??North are bros, south are cool, London is based, but midlands, fucking midlands. We should shoot everyone from the fucking midlands on sight.
Where the fuck is fight club
>>10857410Shit nigga, I missed this. You going in Autumn? I can't lie MCM was dead as fuck this time. The Autumn one was miles better, but maybe that's just the first con fuzz wearing off.
Hands up if you got groped, glomped or otherwise sexually assaulted at MCM (as is tradition) because cosplay is always consent.
>>10857712i might but im not sure if ill be in the uk in autumn. ill post here again to see, but if u know any cosplay/egl event id be down just going in casual clothes/socializing.
>>10857585have a fun time at toko wib :V
>>10857727Probably not gonna go to anything other than autumn MCM. I'll be working so can't travel far from the South East and the only other thing I can think of is London AGC which is apparently run by paedos so prob not going to go.
Tfw want to go to more cons but cbf payin 500 for hotelsWould rather just get some new air jordans
>>10857753Get PSG Jordan 6s. I had the regular version when I was 13Got me mum to write me a note saying I’d left my shoes in my dads work van so I could wear them to school once.
Anyone get filmed by some guy yesterday? He asked for my insta to tag me in it but I don't have one so I just put some random shit down and I'm trying to find where the video ended up.
>>10857940Smh worst part of post con, trying to find shit you're in
Anyone else got kokoro tickets?
>>10857589Cosplayers from the south and especially London are some of the bitchiest middle to upper class people ever. I didn't realise just how snobby and shit they were until i started going to northern cons and was surprised people actually initiated conversation with me like a person. And had actual hobbies and interests beyond being a cunt at cons. It really shook me just how shit people who go to CosXpo and MCM are in comparison.
>>10858271Still didn't address the issue that midlanders are fucking scum. Fucking scum.
>>10858332Battered Chips are nice though.
>>10858377Chips = shit. Replace with onion rings.
>>10858378What's it like being wrong all the time?
>>10858377Glad to see the midlanders are finding even better ways to clog their artaries and shorten their lifespans
This scene is shit now. No new friends coming in and every server trying otherwise is a power grab. Wish someone untouched by bullshit would make a server just for some new life in the space and make the place worth interacting with for more than a few weeks either side of a con.
>>10858602say what you mean anon, a server where you can hate crime?
>>10858602>the sceneyou mean like 30 people here out of the tens of thousands of con goers in the uk?
>>10858607A server where I was able to get in after the main server went to hell. and apparently wasn't active enough or involve significantly in any drama to get into any servers. Apparently I have to hate people for events I know nothing about to be worth of anyone's time.
>>10858613Just join con specific servers and meet people through those line a normal personEvery con is doing it now
>>10858613All the 'splinter' servers are just friend groups, make a new gull server or make friends on a public con server. I'm sorry you weren't able to make any gull friends during the many years gullcord was around anon
>>10858612Tens of thousands is a stretch
midlanders fucked my wife
>>10858991Yeah and she loved itTell her to text me back
Can you actually pick up girls at cons even if you go alone? British culture is a lot more reserved so I can't imagine how Americans claim they just walk up to girls at cons and talk to them. I'm a 5ft8 John Lennon lookalike
>>10859287well then just be coy about it chap. make it accidental but like oh hey while were here yeah baby. slam some rizz on it chap youre good to go
>>10859287Absolutely, I picked up a qt last weekend just by being myself. It's easier if you're meeting friends at least so you can be introduced, but this was just out of the blue.>I can't imagine how Americans claim they just walk up to girls at cons and talk to themConfidence, plus the fact that Americans are a lot more sociable.
>>10857940Can you describe the guy? Was it Comic con News?
Went to a shitty one in Leeds today, first time trying cosplay. I looked dumb and cheap but I had a lot of fun. One girl kept giving me the stink eye but everyone else was really nice. I should go to these more often.
>>10859419why was that bitch mad at you?
>>10859482I'm black and I'm pretty sure the bitch was racist just from the jokes she would make
>>10859482Not a clue, she just gave me this weird ass looks every time we passed, was really weird. Never even spoke to her. But everyone else was nice, so eh oh well.
>>10859488Probally entitled diva cosplayer
>>10859488She wanted that BBC. Keep at it king.
Next con that is worth it?
imagine being scottish haha
