Let's set the scene with some aughts Cosplay Gothic:
>The year is 2008…or something
>You add everyone you can on MySpace and scour their con pics for a picture of yourself
>Gotta get those hot new cosplay pics to your Cosplay.com account
>You follow all your favs on deviantART
>You talk shit about all your favs on /cgl/
>Word is that cosplayer didn't make their costume…they BOUGHT it. They're just doing it for attention!
>PikminLink uploaded a new pic, he’s sooo hot
>Can’t wait to upload that pic of you with the Pedobear cosplayer to your MySpace lololol
>Don’t believe in yourself, believe in me who believes in you!
>You hear the crack of a yaoi paddle echo across the dealer’s room. You don’t have to look, you know it’s (Naruto/Kingdom Hearts/Death Note)

Yeah, that sounds about right. I think anyone girl who went to cons in the ~2006 onward time frame had that experience (which really sucks). I think I was 15-16 when I went to my first con, and it was always just dudes that did shit like that. Like it was always the cocky dudes that would just walk up and hug you and act like they knew you or ask for a pic and then get WAY too close and comfortable. I hate the costhot trend, but I think it’s also helped actually thin out some of the creepier habits with the whole “Cosplay is not Consent” stuff.
Anyways, My next con is PAX West, it’ll be my first time there. I’m currently working on Kasumi from Persona 5. I’d like to make her Phantom Thieves outfit, but the friend I’m going with recommended I keep it as light/comfortable as possible because it’s so spread out….so probably just her uniform then. Anyone been to that one before? Any tips?
you can always change out costumes halfway through the day if you took a car or have a hotel room. i never wear my intense cosplays for more then 6ish hours usually.
it does take more time out of ur con time but im not in too much of a rush anymore to feel bad about leaving for an hour.
Yeah, I usually don't change into other stuff unless we're staying in the con hotel. I'm not sure how far away we're staying? (friend got the room and stuff) just seems like too much of a hassle for a con I'm not familiar with. I'll still make it for the next one though!>>120487
I know what you mean. I feel like it's really difficult to meet new people in the cosplay community too? Seemed so much easier when I was a young unabashed weeb. It's been so long now I'm too cynical. I don't trust anyone that isn't a self-loathing weeb, lmao. I moved from south-east to the midwest, and all my con friends are back home. I can't bring myself to go to any local cons alone to try and make friends, it just feels weird. Also the Nigri reckoning and costhot takeover only makes me more embarrassed to ever bring it up, cause now it's so much more in the zeitgeist I just get>cosplay? isn't that that sex thing?
from normies. Either way without a friend group or community I'm much less motivated/inspired to actually finish shit.

Oh man, yes please. Wish I could remember all the cows of those days. What was the deal with Miyu? Why were we all so obsessed with her again? Just cause she was hotter than your average weeb?

Also when looking for pics of Miyu, this board archive popped up. Gave me a good chuckle because she's completely indistinguishable from the thousands of costhots of today>miyu walked so costhots could run
I'm about to go to my first convention in a couple of weeks. Trying my best to lose some of the last pounds before the con so that my costume has more of a cute baggy sort of look.

Oh yeah, no doubt she's prettier than Nigri. But at the same time her face always looked too mature to me? Like her features just scream I'd like to speak to your manager
As far as why she left, it's all fuzzy but I assume it had to do with seagulls obsessing over her and harassing her. Like, did she really do any other cosplays besides Velvet? I remember there was a scandal about her being a dancer
previously or something? Which is an absolutely absurd thing to be up in arms about compared to what cosplayers will do now for a quick buck. Some olde seagull historian probably knows the deets better.
Because at the time she was a coke-snorting stripper who wanted to act like she was better than everyone else for the fact that she was "hot" and that superiority complex didn't improve as she switched to being a /fit/izen and tried to insert herself as some kind of savior into peoples' lives like when she tried to "fix" Pixyteri?
Miyu was seething jealous of Jnig too.
If it's true that she finally bagged a man >>120748
and is pretending to be a good Christian woman, then that and minding her own business is the best thing she could have done for herself. And considering she's closing in on 40, it's about time. All the og thots who stuck around to grasp for Jnig-tier cosplay success just wound up being Patreon whores.
