I'm going to a really big con next weekend for my twelfth birthday. c: I'll be cosplaying Krista from SnK. Any tips for first-time cosplayers and congoers?

oh! Yes, I’ll give you some tips uwu

  • Drink lots of water and be sure to eat while there! Breakfast, some lunch and dinner - it’s easy to forget. My ciruits calls it “Convention-stomach” which is the thing where you haven’t eaten at all but you’re not hungry
  • If you want to take a picture of someone in cosplay - it’s a 99,9% chance they’ll say yes, so don’t be shy about that!
  • If you want to hug someone - always ask first. No surprise glomping. No sneak attacks. It can seriously hurt someone.
  • Seriously, drink drink drink you don’t want to pass out
  • If someone is being obnoxious around you and you don’t like it (won’t leave you alone, does things without your consent, takes your stuff), call them out on it and tell them what they’re doing wrong
  • If it WOULD happen that someone would loudly call your cosplay inaccurate or wrong or whatever, that’s not true because you’re fabulous and your cosplay kicks ass

that’s all i can come up with for now I’m sure I’ve forgotten something hmmm but yes, have a nice weekend!

Hey fellow cosplayers can you help me out?

I have  cosplay that I bought from CosplayMagic.com and actually I really love it. It’s probably the site I put the most trust in. But they are giving away 100$ certificates to people who have 100 likes on their photo of them in their cosplay.

Here is the -now- public link, so please help me.

Thank you so very much!

This Week In Cosplay:  Sept 1st - Sept 8th, 2014

DragonCon pics!!!

So I attended my first convention ever, and it was DragonCon. What can I say, but…

WHEW!!!

Seriously, I thought I was ready for what DragonCon had to offer, but I was wrong. I was worn out everyday, and I didn’t even do the late night stuff, like the Kilt Blowing with Jennie Breeden, or the shadow play of Rocky Horror! But I still had an absolute blast, and I tried my damnedest to take as many pics as I could, and I didn’t even get a 16th of all the cosplays I saw.

So without further ado, here’s my collection of cosplay pics! I’ll have Con Loot in a later post, and a video in an even later post.

not a reblog but i’d like to point out how people are praising jared for his tweet about the saxx shoot and him hashtagging it #topless #bottomless? and saying things like wow that’s so sexy and wow i hope we get these pictures and wOW MY LADY PARTS ARE QUIVERING

when you know that if misha were to post something similar they’d call him disgusting, perverted, pedophilic, etc. i mean, hell, that’s already happened countless times. 

but no, jared’s a saint and misha houses the devil. jared can do one thing, but if misha does the same thing it’s like a terrible curse has befallen the kingdom. or vice versa. misha can do something sweet (passing out free coffee to exhausted congoers) and it’s called “self-serving” and being an “attention whore”, and if jared were to do it (visiting fans in the hall h line during the night) they’d call him perfect and great and kiss his feet

i want a modern au fic where diego brings hot pants to a furry convention

and i don’t want that whole “lol this is funny because furries are gross!!” thing that i see all the time to be a part of it. i just want a fic about them genuinely enjoying themselves at a furry convention

possibly as awkward high school freshmen who’ve never been to a con in their lives… but i think it’d be better if diego was a seasoned congoer (and hot pants was not)

obligatory night before con post.

CON IS TOMORROW.

THERE WILL BE SO MANY GOOD FACES.

(AND NOT JUST PRECIOUS STORMTROOPER FACES.)

(BUT LOTS OF THOSE TOO.)

AND I MANAGED TWO CLOSET COSTUMES DESPITE ONLY HAVING WORKING HANDS FOR LESS THAN TWO WEEKS.

AND I HAVE TWO WORKING HANDS. DID I MENTION I HAVE TWO WORKING UNBANDAGED HANDS. COS I DO. TWO OF THEM. T. W. O.

(gentle high fives still, congoers, they are working but still fragile!)

but anyway CON CON CON (sneaking away from con for a sub from publix) CONNNNNNNNNNN

Okay so just to be clear, your complaint is about a random small group of congoers who left a mess one night and happened to be in grey paint? Not about the large organized photoshoot in the original accusatory post? Gotcha.

The only complaint against the actual meetup was the noise (and even when the meetup wasn’t happening, the group was there being extremely loud.) Everything else was a complaint against the group that was still up there later at night when my friends and I got there and were there for a few hours; this is the group that left the mess.

radioactive-earthshine replied to your post “froth replied to your post:Don’t leave us hanging! What happened with…”

The only way how I will go to cons is if I have a friend with me at all times :( I get harassed if I don’t. Though thankfully cons are cracking down on harassment and overall annoying behavior.

ughhh gross.

i only got harrassed by the one dudebro at kumoricon and trudy was with me both times so clearly having a friend nearby didn’t save me from that, but walking around by myself is boring, especially since i’m just not really into the new ~craze~ anime (like attack on titan and kill la kill and the various sports anime; i watch free! but i don’t care enough about it to get excited over cosplayers lol D:) and because i’m just… above the average age of a congoer now i guess?
