>>8981767 Overall not a bad con, certainly less debilitating drama than years past. The artists alley had shit in terms of pins though. Thinking I'll do a table with a couple friends of mine next time around.
Found some cool cosplays, but didn't get photos of pretty much any of them. I did pick up a really cool thing of layered paper art from AA. Don't remember who the artist was, but pic related is a pic I took of the thing.
Seems Santa was back again from last year, same cosplayer, new outfit. They actually passed out presents this year, which seemed kinda cool.
>>8977892 Babies 0-4 do not do well at cons and can get trampled, stolen or sick. However 5+ seem like an ok age to bring along, as long as the parent watches them and leaves as soon as the kid becomes miserable. Some young kids enjoy cons and its a magical experience where all these superheroes are walking around in front of their very eyes. Parents who neglect, ignore or use their children as props purely because they want to have fun need to be shot and their kids handed over to CPS. I hear too many stories of... Comment too long.

It feels awesome when you see someone's face light up when they get excited when they see who you're dressed as, being their favorite character or something, but it feels even more genuine with a kid. A lot of the time with adults, they compliment you based on, "Hey, you got that buckle and patch right, most don't." But with kids, they're just super excited to see their hero. I...

I remember one year when this guy parked his baby cart (baby included) flush against my artist alley table so he could go play in the Yu Gi Oh tournament a good 50 feet away. It wasn't an immediate brb, as weird as that would still be. The guy was gone a good half hour before I visibly saw him just hanging out playing Yu Gi Oh. 'Bout lost my fucking mind.
I had to find someone to watch my table for a sec while I carefully go move the baby cart back to the shitty dad, to which he starts freaking out at me about what the fuck I'm doing.
I get back and apparently the fucking mother with second baby sit at my table (as the guy I asked to watch my table has an emergency and had to run and wound up asking this lady as he knew her) and this one's little baby was eating my markers because the mom was not paying attention either. Fortunately they were crayola, but god fucking damn. Apparently they liked my table because it was the one within eyeshot of the YGO tournament. I try and chill out and I guess I wound up being really nice to the lady (for having a spare chair for her to sit in I guess and not cussing her or her shitty husband out). For some reason she liked me and found me on Facebook, where she proceeded to tag me in 500 pictures as Joey Wheeler and her friends as other anime characters.
Tangents aside, those parents never paid attention to their kids at cons or other events (a while later I stepped out for a smoke and found one of the babies, now able to walk, outside alone in the parking lot of a Japanese-themed arcade at 1 in the morning-- this is a shady af area of Las Vegas too-- a lot of locals were staying overnight inside the arcade for a lock-in). Shitty parents. I brought the kid in and told the parents to get a sitter or go the fuck home.
I've heard they've had CPS called on them, but I've also seen them recently with the kids. Typical, jobless bums that go to every local event they can with their untamed, unsupervised rugrats.
First one: sewing an all white costume, I sewed through my index finger and broke off the needle in my nail, with the point sticking out the pads of my finger. I was able to remove it with tweezers, but that might be the most painful thing I've ever done.
My cosplay friend, upon hearing the story asked the important question: "Did you get any blood on the fabric?"
Second one: I was using a hot knife to cut through some plastic when the knife slipped and stabbed me in the thumb. It didn't cauterize the wound... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>8988133 It's a well known fact that the more attractive you are the more you can get away with things that people would hate on less fortunate people. If you aren't a 10/10 or at least an 8/10 like most people who model things it can be hard to know if it will suit you.
>>8987393 Kek the mouth upside down really got me can we make this a general terrible online shopping experiences thread >tfw i really like rilakkuma and want to hug you It's like his retarded brother. Rehlehkehmeh.
>>8985892 I'm not. My friends invited a retard. I've never had a con or anything go right in my life because they always invite the worst people or some dumb shit happens to me. I have friends that could have gotten us in for free but they didn't go because they hate meeting new people.
No actually cares, but it's definitely noticeable when someone is wearing Party City cheap spandex Spiderman versus someone who either comissioned or handmade their work well. It might be better to buy off the rack if you don't believe in your skillmanship.
I think most people who buy off the rack aren't planning on entering contests or asking for photos but are just dressing up to have fun and fit in outside of Halloween. Like you wouldn't even be mad if someone spilled beer on your suit, you know?
