literally no one will notice/care that it's your first con so don't sweat it
some tips: 1.) bring a cosplay repair kit if you'll be in cosplay 2.) don't forget to drink water and feed yourself; pack food if you want to minimize spending costs 3.) also get some sleep at some point 4.) download the scheduling app if there is one, otherwise 5.) if the map/guide is only on paper, take photos of the maps and panels you're interested in with your phone 6.) stay away from people that rub you as creepy or unsettling 7.) have a budget...

>>9094413 Going, excited mostly for the bands, especially Chanty since I'm a huge fan of Akuta. Only thing I don't like is we finally get a "Jfashion" booth, but it's Dynamite "I cheat and abuse all my musicians" Tommy's and DADA "I hate all my international fans"'s lazy, half-assed attempt at lolita. $1000 for dresses and $50 for tights that we don't even know what quality is actually like.
OP, if you're going to make the AA thread, include all the resource links.

>>9089613 1. Arda Wigs, conventions, ebay out of desperation, Epic Cosplay, Aliexpress. Costumes handmade and commissioned mostly it seems. Otherwise, Aliexpress...ebay..second hand. 2. Not sure how to answer this. Maybe better quality? I've felt fibers from Japanese companies and they're niiiice. I see a lot of front lace wigs lately. 3. Hottest...I'd say Idol stuff, sports anime, One Punch Man, Magical Girl stuff. Retro animes are a bit hit. I'm seeing mostly video game cosplays though.
I'm not going. I had spent weeks making and designing props for all the costumes that I was going to take, and for people that commissioned me to make props as well. However: with this new prop weapon policy the owners put out, many of the people that asked for props want a refund instead, and I essentially wasted time on a cosplay.
>>9069116 That seems extreme. Did you honestly think that Supercon (or any con) wouldn't have made changes to their prop weapon's policy after Pulse? I personally think it's the right call for the con and they're abiding by the recommendations (or requirements?) that Miami Beach laid out.
I don't think the weapon's policy is that terrible. You can't have realistic fake weapons, no conceal/carry, no metal props, nothing that could reasonable hurt someone - foam and soft props are encouraged.... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Can someone explain to me why people hate/boycott the Broder-cons? There seem to be a lot of people with animosity towards these conventions and take a stand on not attending out of some sort of ethical reason.
I don't really cosplay and I have trouble talking to people, so all I want from an event is to have something to entertain me besides paying to go in cosplay and meet friends (which I don't do or have). I think they delivered. The auditorium was hugeee, well air conditioned, comfy, and had stuff going on all the time. Kept me entertained. I hope more events follow suit and start planning more activities, then maybe I'll start attending again.

>>9097657 Our friends surprised us with passes like the week before. we had zero time to plan, so just just put on a black sailor uniform and dyed some of her hair, I had cowboy stuff laying around and what not. the whole process was a mess
>>9097642 >Russia Anyone else find it funny how so many guys assume cosplayers are fake geek girls, when we have men coming to this board all the time who don't even know the names of the characters they're talking about?
