How rare is it for Peppermint Fox/Mulberry Chronicles collections to come up for resale or rerelease? I am smitten with a few that are long gone.

Every time I've been to a convention I've stuck to the videgame room/arcade, artist alley, and dealer's room, but this year I want to start going to panels. So I want to hear all stories: the good, the bad, and the ugly.all

pffft... grow some balls and walk out. Just stare at the door and bee line your way out, nobody cares, everybody has a life.

If you want to be rude though, rather blatantly, as you pick up your things and leave put your cellphone up like you have to meet someone and say "yeah I'm on my way, this panel is <insert comment>" I've seen people do that too, only ones who will hear it...

The only really scary panels are the ones where the hosts don't show up or with audience feedback.
Then every autistic schmuck hogs the mic and talks about that experience they think is really funny but isn't at all.

best and worst you've seen and how the fuck do you cell shade?

I hate cell shading personally. It can look okay when smoothed out in photoshop but in person the cosplayer just looks dirty.

Jessica Nigri's contouring for Tiny Tina is also horrifying.

There is something about the lips on her that ages her like fucking milk. I just started a Handsome Jack costume, but instead of trying to work with my round face I'm full sculpting a mask which ain't think might look better with cel-shading.

I personally like when people cell shade for borderlands cosplay. There is a good and bad for it though, because not everyone does it well. Like for instance I like that handsome jack, but I feel like that's too much makeup/face photoshop.

I know for most of us it's winter time, but can we have a floral dress/clothes thread? Lolita, Natural Kei, Cult Party Kei, Mori Girl, or whatever. As long as flowers are the main part of the print or design.

Post your favorite classic coords.

I haven't worn lolita in years and also sold most of my dresses. But I found the cutest fabric today and I really want to make a new lolita dress out of it. So I could use some inspiration.

How do you guys deal with unsupportive parents/guardians/family members?

Personally I just turned 23 but I'm living with my parents again before pursuing graduate school in the fall because money and it can get frustrating to feel like I still have to ask for permission to go to conventions and stuff. Even talking about it just seems like I'm pulling teeth when this is a hobby I've had since I was 14. My dad's whole thing is that as long as I'm in his house I'm still his kid and still have to answer to my folks which I can understand (I've...

My dad encouraged me a lot, and helped me with power tools and sanding some props for costumes.
My mom helps with sewing and patterns and things like that.

Both my parents love that it makes me so happy.
When I was really depressed about a year ago, I made halfhearted plans to go to a small, local con and didn't want to cosplay. My mom surprised me by buying all the pieces for a Raven (teen titans) cosplay and helping me get the rest of the stuff I needed.
I'm still losing interest in the cosplay scene in general, but my parents have always been really...

Sometimes it's easier to ask for forgiveness than permission. In the grand scheme of things, when given the choice of "Kicking them out and never seeing them again" or "They sneak out sometimes but at least they're home with me," your parents are going to choose the latter.

I threw together some progress on Yamato no Kami Yasusada today. It turned out a lot better than I had expected it to for being all put together in a day. For the most part it was just a lot of practice getting used to my new serger. I know I am probably going to nix the Hakama, just because they were just an attempted made from some left over twill I had. But maybe they're salvageable.

Hopefully I can finish all the fabric stuff and start some armor work tomorrow.

Why does the East Coast treat cosplay related events so much better than West Coast? West Coast has some good cosplay related panels but cons always just stick them in panel rooms and do little to promote them. Meanwhile the West Coast just treats these events like a giant free for all where they'll take anyone.

Meanwhile cons like Anime Boston or Tora-con actually feature these events. Boston puts cosplay chess and cosplay death match on the main stage, they get hyped crowds

East and West coast con culture is just incredibly different in a LOT of ways. It's still possible to get free photos on the west coast, meanwhile greenbox newbies are charging 150$ for three photos at Katsu. AB and Ota both focus a lot on getting asses in chairs due to space constraints, so any big draw event gets hyped, but the weather out West is always nice and people can wander around outside doing shoots instead. Lots of factors culturally.

But probably the answer has to do with how incestuous most con staff is. A lot of people work for multiple cons in their...

Toracon's cosplay chess only works because it's a college club that gets to work on it all year. Outside of a condensed community like that it's hard to pull off something like that and also it took them years to refine the process and is only helped by the fact some graduates are still around. Previous years were awful and gave 10 minutes of stage time to terrible gags. With a regular con taking community volunteers you would have too much turnover and flakes.

Also west coast has a lot of game shows and it's own unique panels like Banzai Arcade....
