This girl I hate threw a massive party that she invited all the regulars of our comm to and I snuck into her room and stole her Iron Gate skirt. I would have taken more, but that was all I could fit in my bag. It sucks because I can't wear it until I move, but it was so worth it to see her standing in the comm deteriorate from adamantly blaming six different people for taking it after the fact. I wasn't even one of the suspects because she thinks I adore her too much to do that for some reason.

This interests me. Are they settling this IRL right now? I want to know what happens.

>> No.8080561

Well since I'm sure nobody with half a brain would post such a story detailing specifics about a very rare skirt theft and expect nobody to recognize who they are, I'm guessing this is a red herring bait to try to get girls in that comm who think the Iron Gate skirt was stolen (>>8080483) to turn on each other.

Hey, >>8080483, did you ever think that maybe anonymous posters don't tell the truth? If the fact about the IG owner "accusing six others" of taking the skirt is true, then isn't it entirely possible that maybe the owner just fucking misplaced it and is quick to scapegoat other people?

If not that, then how about this: If I was trying to blow smoke and mirrors after I stole something valuable and was making a "confession" anonymously about it, I'd set someone else up by including details about them like
>girl I hate
>until I move
>she thinks I adore her too much to do that
So we already know the person who's being set up carried a large bag with them that night, is going to be moving soon, and is superficially on good terms with the IG owner but isn't a very close friend. Gee, aren't these a little too-specific details for someone who probably DOESN'T want to get caught? Ya fookin idiots.

How? People misplace valuable shit all the time and blame other people for it. Do you know her personally? Do you know that she tore her room searching for it before she started pointing fingers?

She definitely did not misplace it. She is an extremely clean and well organized person. Not to mention, that skirt was her life. She noticed it went missing the day after the party the thief specified and she had last seen it two days prior, she said. She also said that it never leaves her closet besides when she wears it, which is only once in a while.

She did go too far with pointing fingers at people, but the thing is there were less than ten people at this party allowed to go upstairs and everyone was throwing blame everywhere. It's not like she just accused random people. She purposely spent the whole time in the second floor living room where the staircase is so that she could make sure no one she didn't consider a good friend could just go in her room or office. Her and another friend who was with her saw everyone who was on the second floor that night.

Your second theory is very plausible, though, and I will bring it to the discussion our group is having on the issue.

Probably because she seems nice and funny, doesn't engage in any drama and is dressed good enough not to look hideous, yet not good enoigh to come off as intimidating. Funny and goofy enough to like her, yet not so good looking and superb at coordinating that it is intimidating.

The wedding ring analogy was meant to demonstrate that people lose significant and important shit.

Your point would have some truck if these events had apparently taken place in just one night, but it seems to be over several days.

I'm not saying girls aren't confrontational, but to say they're worse than guys for it is, in my experience, just incorrect. I was bullied for years by both boys and girls, but I found girls' bullying so much easier to handle, because all they do is ostracise you or talk about you behind your back. That's fine, I didn't want to hang with you anyway. But guys will not leave you alone.

I used to think like you, so I made it a point to only befriend males until I realized they're pretty fucking bad, too. Now I just judge people on personality rather than assuming "male=no drama" and I have many lovely lady friends. I think age really plays into it. In high school, girls can be literal sociopaths, but as they get older they really chill out. All my current lady friends were 21+ when I befriended them and in multiple years of friendship with all of them, I've only had conflict with one once that was solved without any extreme cattiness or bloodshed.

This. I had no female friends at all between the ages of 12 and 17 (my experience with bullying was the opposite of >>8080711's - some girls in my school ran a slut/lesbian rumour smear campaign against me that meant literally no-one in the year would befriend me, and because I couldn't find out exactly who was spreading it I couldn't even report it like I could boys), but my social circle's been 50-50 since college.

>> No.8080744

I can assure you this is not the case. I've known her for years and she's not one to pull something like that. Plus, she's not even willing to believe it's the girl the post criminalizes. She's actually quite shaken up right now over this entire thing and doesn't even know what to think.

I think it's possible it's a red herring, but I could believe the person would be stupid enough to think they could have gotten away with it after writing that.

I know this all sounds awful nd creepy as fuck, but if you really think about it, there's nothing wrong with it. I don't do anything to bother or scare her at all, she doesn't even know I exist. I would never hurt her, it's not like I'm a threat to her in any way.

I wish the cosplay community at large was less infested with absolute retards. Not necessarily saying "KILL SUPERWHOLOCKSTUCK HERO 6-ZEN" or whatever fandom tends to garner the typical sources of hatred (that they usually deserve).

I'm more talking about the fact that your average congoer is still spouting ancient memes, making dated references, constantly chattering about their favorite YouTube personalities, and are immediately drawn away from any form of conversation which is either controversial in any way, or is more complex than "Shout a meme! XD". I go to about 10 cons every year, and I wind up spending time around the same types of people, and it's almost always either people I know thanks to 4chan, or people who are simply diehards for whatever media/series they like the most. I can find somebody who is hardcore into Toku and talk to them about Kamen Rider for hours and find a friend, but before I find this girl or guy, I find myself sifting through eighty people spouting THE GAME IS A LIE XDD, wearing their Attack on Titan capes and shambling about with their equally retarded friends. I've just had it with cons yielding such a dense framework of idiots, with people who have a matter of sense being so sparsely sprinkled about that it's a miracle I can ever find them.

Kind of silly that they're giving up free tickets/flight/hotel but if they aren't really digging the con, you shouldn't fault them for not wanting to spend the additional travel time. Unless they waited many months to tell you, AFTER you already dropped some cash on it, in which case, dick move.

I decided I'm going to Prime. I'll cover them for prime if they decide they want to go but I'm okay with going solo to this con. It really is a dream con and East is fine too but it's really not what I planned this year.
I only booked at hotel and flight for myself so far.
Because these guys have been friends for a really long time and I guess I'm the type to do anything to make them happy. The reason they'd take East>Prime is because they say they're sorta uncomfortable with me paying so much but I really don't think they understand that the (scalped) ticket prices for East tip the scales in Prime's favor right now. Neither of them could afford this trip at the moment and I'm perfectly fine with covering it.

My usual con friend group are really starting to piss me off. I only usually plan to go to maybe a couple of cons a year, because planning trips and budgeting for making new costumes is expensive. They're all bitching because they want to go to as many as humanly possible, which I guess is ok when they're getting the money handed to them by their parents (I'm also the only one with a job). I've also realised that they are literally the weeby stereotype just hanging round cons in shitty bought costumes not actually doing anything. I'm really torn over what to do, because if I ditch them then I have no one else to go to cons with.

tl;dr con friends are shitty, but I can't get rid of them right now, wat do?

I feel like a bad lolita because I really dislike most dresses and prints. I think a lot of them are tacky or just straight up ugly. When I find something I like, I LOVE it and want it in multiple cuts and colorways. I've got eight main pieces right now from only three different releases (two skirts and one JSK each from two releases, and two OPs in different colors from the third). I obviously don't want to drop that much money on something I don't love, but I feel like the girls in my comm think I'm a huge weirdo for having the same things over and over. A couple have brought it up and kind of laughed it off, but I dunno.

I know what matters is my own happiness with my wardrobe, and I'm getting better and better at coording, but it still sucks feeling like the people I want to be friends with look down on me thanks to my semi-picky taste. Oh well.

I haven't had any breakdowns at cons recently actually! Thanks for asking :D

And I get that. I get that the industry now has become a risque showcase in the eyes of the media, and that it focuses more on the T&A than the Q&A. My skills as is aren't as phenomenal as I'd like them to be and I know that it's going to take time and a lot of practice to get to a point where I can say that I'm truly honestly good at it. But half of me wonders, with all of the tutorials and resources out for cosplay and the convention scene, if in the time it'll take for me to learn and /cosplay all the things/ and produce something great, the con scene will continue to grow as it has been?

The past few years conventions have absolutely blown up in mainstream media (from my pov but I'm young and haven't experienced cons pre-2000's), which is awesome because like the more fans the merrier.

But I look at where I could be in five or ten years time and wonder if the community will still be this active and if all the work I'd put towards things is worth it. If they'll be relevant and if people will care.

Its something I think about a lot but its probably just me being pessimistic.

But on the other hand, it makes me feel good that they're not getting any better, their skills will probably deprecate over the years while they comfortably think they're talented and worth everyone's time. While other, less humble people surpass them in skill and their growing vanity will soon alienate them from other cosplayers.

The best part is ever since my mom stopped smoking she gained a shit ton of weight because she's surrounding herself with the food that she would surround me with.
She always blamed solely me for my weight without realizing that she influenced horrible habits and her only trump card was smoking being an appetite suppressant. Now she's fatter than me and wondering why shit is happening to her.

I know I sound like a bitch for being so against my mom, but fuck if she doesn't deserve it. Before she moved away I'd always offer to go on walks with her and she always flaked on me.
She thinks most healthy meats like seafood is "gross" and the only way a vegetable appeals to her is if it's iceberg lettuce topped with ranch dressing.

She only tripped here a couple times to defend herself.
JJ is a cosplayer who /cgl/ used to be obsessed with. Now she's just a decent, boring Homestuck cosplayer, but before her multiple year long break from cosplay, she was absolutely insane and posted here literally daily due to constantly having some form of popcorn worthy shit or another surrounding her. She was even referred to as /cgl/'s queen for a while until PT took over. I would actually go so far as to say that next to Yaya and JNig, JJ was probably discussed on here more so than any other cosplayer for her drama. This was from 2005-2010 until she decided to quit cosplay for, like, 2 years and came back quite calmed down. She can still be a huge bitch from what I've been told by her friends, but she's a lot more self-aware and is very private about her conflicts with others, as opposed to letting the entire cosplay world knowing exactly who she did and didn't like, how much, and why.

Twice I have been the second girl to enter an entirely male group and both times, the first was the embodiment of this kind of female.

The first of the two I had to deal with was this hideous hambeast who made a huge deal about the fact her tits were bigger than mine, thus guys were more attracted to her. She also gloated about how she apparently could fuck any of the guys in the group if she wanted, yet all of them were absolutely disgusted by the thought of her sexually. We went to a couple cons and she always made a point of wearing the skimpiest costume she could find on eBay for less than $100 or some skanky Hot Topic dress with a cheap purple wig. After constant drama from her end regarding me, we all stopped inviting her to shit. According to her, I used my skinny bitch charm to lure all of them away from her.

The second was a fairly attractive girl who did everything she could to be "one of the guys" to the point of practically denying she was female. Anytime I died in a video game, she was always like "See?! Girls can't play video games!" and wasn't even trying to be funny, she was dead serious. It didn't matter if I was playing the hardest difficulty and it was my first time dying at three fourth the way, though, she would still say it. She was a total bitch about my lolita and whenever the guys and I had conversations about my clothes, she'd but in and be like "no one cares about that stupid froo froo shit you wear". She literally stopped conversations she was having and walked over to me to tell me that.

Both had gone on multiple tangents about how girls were evil drama goblins with hearts of sluttiness and hatred, so they never could get along with any. Projection central.

This so many times. I've always been a tomboy, thus I've been friends with males all my life and work in a male-centered field (like 80% males), but the gender distribution in my friend circle is around 50/50. And let me tell you - guys can be just as catty and bitchy as women and stir up drama just the same. Actually, one of the biggest drama queens I've ever met is a heterosexual man.

I've also met plenty of these "guys just get me, girls just cause drama hurr hurr I'm one of the guys!!!!"-chicks who in all seriousness think men are magical beings free of any petty conflicts who say everything straight to your face and don't overcomplicate issues. And the projection thing is real - usually the girls themselves are the drama queens they claim other women to be. And in most cases the guys just keep her around in hopes to get laid or - ironically - because they're too chicken to tell her to fuck off and instead talk about her behind her back. Some of these women initiate horrible drama over small things within other girls, then huff and puff how "THIS IS WHY I DON'T HANG AROUND WITH OTHER GIRLS YOU JUST CAUSE DRAMA!!!!".

She really viewed all of them as her personal harem or something and they had no idea. They ended up dropping her because she went completely insane towards the two of us.
This one was kind of a combination of yours, with the constant over the top sexuality but also the "girls are terrible, anything feminine is terrible, every woman besides me is a dumb vain useless slutwhore" attitude that made it less than surprising she couldn't find any female friends.

>girls are terrible, anything feminine is terrible, every woman besides me is a dumb vain useless slutwhore
Man I don't know, as much as I'd love more female friends (nobody to talk skincare with atm, for one) most of the girly/feminine girls end up being the "teehee cutesy and innocent lovelies" who get all their jokes from sex and the city and think anything is a personal attack on them.
It's not even about being feminine, your looks are beside the point, it's the "girls r supposed to be innocent lovelies" attitude that I can't stand with some people. And I can't help thinking of someone as a vain slutwhore if she dresses and acts like a Slav escort and her idea of humour is making fun of random people's appearances.
In the same vein, I can't stand guys who are too insecure to do anything because "it's 4 gurls so dat means I'm gay lol xD" and try too hard to be manly/players/whatever.

It doesn't really matter if the person is feminine or not, but if they act like a dumb blonde stereotype its no surprise people are going to dislike them.

Another guy in the group flat out said he wasn't surprised because she always had to be "the girl". She told everyone that he stopped being friends with her because I made him (even though it was due to her being awful and no attempts to reconcile ending well) and her dad even left a couple extremely rude and inappropriate comments on pictures of me on my fiance's FB, such as saying I'm "hot, but crazy". Just a couple weeks ago he left one blaming me for him not showing up to an event of hers he wasn't even invited to and telling him to get a new fiance. She would also do this thing where she would brutally bitch me out (like without any provocation tell me how I'm a crazy bitch and he was only with me out of fear during a talk that was supposed to end in us being chill) then tell him she loved him immediately after and "not to confuse it".

I've noticed a very high concentration of these girls in cosplay circles and I kind of think it contributes to the hobby being so drama-filled. I also think many girls use the idea that women are programmed to be catty as an excuse to get away with their bullshit the same way a lot of men make it out like the entire gender is programmed to fuck anything with an orifice to get away with shit like cheating.

Thing is, the outfit he's doing is so obscure that I don't think anyone else will realize it's a joke. I want to support my friend, and I'm glad that he's trying to put himself out there and hopefully make friends and have a good time and shit, but god, I'm embarrassed for him already; people are going to make fun of his outfit, and he's so proud of the damn thing.

There's more than one accent in Britain, you will have to be more specific.
And afaik none are as terrible at English as yanks are.

As fas as the Bible is concerned, God is a flighty fucking crazy asshole who has no idea what he wants and no regard for anything.
>hey Abraham kill your son for me
>"okay then"
>LOL JUST KIDDING I was testing you
>btw thou shalt not murder, duh
>anyway isn't Satan an asshole? fuck him, you should follow me I'm cool

I have a soft spot for friendly WWJD Christians so nothing against the religion in general, but how anyone can take the Bible literally and not keel over from the cognitive dissonance is beyond me.

The men usually don't realize they're being "herded", so no. They just think they have a cool female friend who is practically one of the guys. A lot of the time they're not even attracted to her.

You tend to find a lot of girls like this in male-dominated hobbies. I don't know if cosplay can be considered male-dominated but general nerdery certainly is. They tend to be very insecure with nothing to offer so their whole identity hinges on being "the girl" in a group of not-girls. When another woman gets close to the group they see them as a usurper because in their mind they're the fucking Highlander and there can only be one.

Oh ye I have so many similar experiences in other MMO I used to play some years ago. Guild had 4 girls and two of them were "accidentally" sending all guy guild members their bikini pictures to make sure they had easy access to all drops without actually bothering to clear any harder dungeon. Boobs does the trick.

Did you get the dates for East and Prime confused? Prime is in August and tickets wont go on sale til like late May. (I'm going by the PAX I went to last year) and the chances of getting tickets to Prime is a slim one unless you're stalking the sales, they sold out in about 15 minutes last year with people selling Saturday alone for $200+.
Honestly,you can try to see if you can even get tickets to Prime, since like I said, it's a bloodbath where its annoying enough to get tickets for yourself. So multiple people you're gonna need to bust your ass.
It's a great experience, it's the 'same con' but Prime is much more eventful. Gl with that.

I think it gives the mom more of an ego boost than her daughter, imo. If she knows her dresses are being submitted into contests and the daughter is winning then she must be getting some sort of satisfaction of knowing her craft is good. Or else she wouldn't be so loose-lipped and bragging to one of her daughter's acquaintences about it.

>I don't know if cosplay can be considered male-dominated but general nerdery certainly is.
The thing is, cosplay is a female dominated hobby, but like you said, nerdery in general is more male (besides anime, that's pretty 50/50), so a lot of these types of girls get into cosplay thinking that they're going to be in the minority gender only to find out that's far from the case and having a vagina isn't enough to make them special in the con scene. The fact that cosplay is already competitive when it comes to looks and especially craftsmanship doesn't help. Many of these girls are also extremely insecure about their looks, often for good reason, and their attitude toward women is worse if they're more attractive.

>> No.8087427

What's up with all of these catty insecure women in general? You have the attention whores, you have the women who bitch at other women, and you have the petty girls that steal other women's clothing. Seriously if you can use all of that energy then why not find a job instead of begging men and OTHER WOMEN for money?

Double standards my ass. I'm starting to think that the majority of people are simple minded sheep.

I think I scared both my best friends from getting into lolita. One of them off handedly mentioned getting into it in a group chat of ours, and I think I went overboard with the helpful links, advice, ect. And told her to not get the dress she was looking at, cause it's from milanoo, and looked sorta bad quality in the first place. I mean, she said it seemed like too much, so I can't help but feel bad. I just wanted a cutely dressed l lolita friend.

I'm a Homestuck, but I hate 99% of Homestucks with a passion. I get more attention/admiration for my shitty Homestuck cosplays at cons than I do for costumes I put legit effort into, which irks me; but at the same time it's hard to stop cosplaying from a series I enjoy.

People pay attention to cosplays from series they like. Lots of homestucks at cons = lots of attention. If it really bothers you, try making your non-homestuck cosplay more eye-catching.

>> No.8089409

No you're totally right! It's just so easy to accept no-effort attention.

>> No.8089555

You sound a little assmad. Try reading again: if you want more attention for non-popular cosplays, you need to make your cosplay more impressive in order to grab notice from people who don't care about your series. Are you retarded?
