Some conventions do have Lolita but every con thread in my area area for the last 3 years or so has had issues where lolitas pop in and complain about there not being enough lolita panels/tea parties/guests or say the organizers are anti-lolita. The local comm got so bad last year the con chair came into the thread himself to say that the con didn't have an anti-lolita bias, they just don't make money for what it costs so it got canceled.

The spoiled, entitled behavior they keep showing pisses off cosplayers who just want to talk about a con. It's like if fursuiters came into a thread for an anime con and bitched about not enough anthro content.

ayrt, this actually makes sense and would get on my nerves. i'm sorry your local con threads get hijacked by crybabies. i never said lolitas couldn't be entitled in those threads, and that sucks. legitimately sorry your con has to deal with that and makes me feel warmfuzzy that our small but local con seems to lack a lot of the bullshit some other areas have (or i am just not involved enough on that end to notice/for it to effect my enjoyment of it).
i go to cons both as a cosplayer and to attend lolita events if they're available so i get both sides. its just easier for me to ignore stupid shit than it is to let it become something that grinds my gears.

look man I just want to make costumes, dress up, and talk with other people about how they made their costumes. it's not a hard concept.

instead, you get mini political rallies with an extra dose of autism. Seriously, fuck off with your "this character whose sexuality is literally never mentioned is DEFINITELY G A Y and if they're not i'm TAKING THEM BACK >:^)". On top of that, the community is fake as fuck; they do the whole "UWU DRINK WATER AND NO BULLY" and then they talk mad shit about other people for literally no reason.

I really hate the community as a whole desu and I would quit in a heartbeat if I didn't like making costumes and meeting and chilling with the handful of people who make their cosplays, or with some of the people from here.

>> No.10192452

Casual cosplays and closet cosplays are totally different. A closet cosplay is literally in the name for throwing on whatever is in your closet. A casual cosplay could include items from your closet, but that would be mere coincidence rather than intentional. There are casual outfits for certain characters or fanart with casual outfits that can look really good, but would require more than a bare minimum effort which wouldn't make it a bad costume. My gripe is that people who do closet cosplays consider them to be complete costumes. It's not the full thing and shouldn't be considered like it. Buying just the wig for a character can and should never be considered a finished cosplay, it's a makeup test at best.

I'm on the fence over this, I do it too, mind you with lots of effort, and I honestly just cannot get into any other show, so all my cosplays are from the same show all the time. What varies is the make-up work, the props, the detail on each costume even if it's very simple. Sometimes I pick the easy ones but just try to nail being as perfect as I can. I do worry what people think that this is all I have, but then I'm doing it for me so... And to break up the monotony, I post pics of all the other people I get cosplay photos of, too, because I'm sure they'd like to see those.

I do get frustrated by the people who don't even make a cosplay and do the same thing, though. I always wonder if my own posts are annoying.

>> No.10192676

Yeah, I feel you anon. 90% of the cosplays I make are from the same series because 1) I love it 2) There are a lot of games, and lots of variety in the character designs, and I really enjoy making them in the style that they use, and 3) It's why the majority of my followerbase is there in the first place.

Yeah, >>10192674 is pretty accurate. I've been going to cons the same amount of time and can count on one hand the number of "crazy SJWs" I've seen, and I feel like I rarely encounter people talking politics at all.

It's my least favorite cosplay trend so far. I've been playing league since 2012, so watching the character design go from general moba aesthetics to these edgy teen aesthetics (whether they're more "anime schoolkid" or "kpop thot" or what have you) is really cringy desu. Also to me its one of the most low-effort 'cosplays' out there - I guarantee most of the people who cosplayed from it bought all of it and would never cosplay the original splash art of eve, kai'sa, akali, or ahri (well except ahri, but I consider ahri cosplayers automatic e-thots. that's another thing but it doesn't grind my gears as much lol)

i can't stand most genderbend cosplays. wouldn't mind at all if people would take the character's personality into account. ie, a hypermasculine dudebro character would probably at least be a short-haired tomboy as a girl, not a girl with super long beautiful hair and three pounds of makeup. basically reposting what someone else said on the bad shoop thread but i agree with it so much: genderbending a character wouldn't change their entire personality and aesthetic. plus when they're good i can really get behind them but the majority of the time i just feel like it's an excuse to be lazy for people (mainly girls) who don't want to even attempt crossplay
