>•Which pet peeves do you hate people for having?
I have a particular peeve with the people who don't like wigs.
I see it as like.. they only watch realistic/live-action things or they think we're talking about Party City quality wigs. If so, their newbness shines like a beacon.
But really, it's annoying. It's nothing to be proud of if you so-boldly hate something that 8/10 makes a costume look better, specifically anime costumes.

Most people(NOT ALLl) who say they are trans men and like cosplay (mostly tumblr yaoi girls) never want surgery and never want hormones, only bind with cosplaying, make no effort to look male or be male.
These people piss me off and I wish they were just shot into the sun, because it's an embarrassment to real trans and queer people. It just seems like they watched to much yaoi and can't get over their vagina or something.

People who are actually trans have gender dysmorphia, which means that their brain feels uncomfortable with their body because the genders don't match. You can have women who like to dress in a masculine way but are perfectly okay with having a female body, and so aren't considered trans. But with a trans person i.e. a person who would be uncomfortable with their female body you wouldn't expect them to embrace their femininity so completely, you know? No issues, no trans.

It's also that this person apparently puts no effort into being male aside from saying "btw I'm a boi". What's the point in that?

>> No.7598574 [DELETED]

Not every trans person has dysphoria, and the level of it differ too. Like if you are a trans male and you have buff figure from the get go, you probably arent going to have as many issues as the trans male with the big tits. Not everyone wants to change their genitals when the result is meh at best too. There is also the non binary trans people who may or may not have issues with some parts of their bodies depending on what they identify as. Although >>7598105 use of truscum is a thing where trans people tell other trans people if you dont have dsyphoria at all you cant be trans.

It's an interesting point that you bring up, though, because I always see cosplay and lolita smashed together, but the result of it is cosplayers going, "Ohh lolita looks so pretty, I want to get into lolita!" and that's where nearly all itas come from, yet lolitas never seen to care much for cosplay or they used to and grew out of it.

Having dysphoria is basically the definition of being trans. If you don't feel any discomfort at all towards your physical sex, you're not trans.

>> No.7598613 [DELETED]

No it isnt? All dsyhoria is is a title they put in the dsm to classify people who want to transition. Not all trans people will want to get hormones, especially if their identity is neither male or female, and some have their own ways of dealing with it.

Definition of trans is someone who doesnt identify with the gender they were given at birth. You dont have to hate your body to decide you dont agree with the label that it brings.

>> No.7598626 [DELETED]

>gender they were given at birth
You mean sex.
Trans is someone whose gender doesn't line up with their sex. Gender is the mental identification, sex is the stuff between your legs.
If you don't have dysphoria, you might as well not bother slapping a trans label on yourself, because at that point, it's just a preference. Trans is a mental condition.

like deadpool, I went out and bought a recent game featuring him and I feel in love with the character, later I was told I was fake for liking him because I didnt read his comic and then when I did I was still called out for being fake because I "forced" myself to read it that I didnt actually like him

how do I beat this "fake nerd girl" bullshit, also I hate that name and the word "nerd" in general, why the fuck would I want to be associated with real nerds in a positive way anyway I dont fucking get it

It really doesn't make sense to me why someone who doesn't experience gender dysphoria at any level should be considered trans.

Without having that disconnect from your physical sex, it seems to me to be more about social ideas and gender roles. And if you don't fit into that, cool. Why do you need a label such as "trans"?

Hell. I struggle with gender dysphoria and have all my life. I'm seeing a therapist. But since I (at this time) have no intention of medically transitioning, I don't even use the word "trans" anymore. I have GID. That's what I tell people.

No, that would be like if you said 'you can be trans but not transition,' which happens in multiple cases.
Gender dysphoria is literally just feeling uncomfortable with your sex, and feeling like you're supposed to be a different gender. If that doesn't apply to you, you can't be trans. No ifs, ands, or buts. If you're not uncomfortable with your sex, you have no reason to say you're a different gender, unless you're a transtrender who wants to pretend they're 'unique.'
If that's the case, you're no different than the people in the 2000s who would claim they're 'TOTS BI, GAIS' and then outright say they'd never date someone of the same sex.

To stay on topic, pet peeve: Bad fabric choices. Usually they're based on what's cheapest, but that doesn't make it look good. Pic related, those cloaks are meant to keep them warm, you think that fabric is going to do shit? Come on. Not to mention that it's optional, so why even add the cloak if you're going to cheap out on the fabric?

But they're good wigs, you're right, fair enough. How about shows that do a crappy job with wigs, like Arrow and the crappy blunt fringe thing they put on Kelly Hu for the first season?

The trap of Deadpool is that depending on the writer, some comic runs are good, and others are "lel so randum XD". So, even if you read the comics, they could be the "wrong" ones.

Always ask /co/, even if you don't follow their recommendation (some people like eating shit/randumb Waypool) it'll give you something to go on.

Also, DC and Marvel comics sucks massive balls; capeshit sucks balls.

The biggest problem with cosplaying Usagi is so many people try to pull off a shitty character from a shitty anime they haven't seen since they were five.

Serena is the english adaptation for at least the US and UK (not sure if they changed it for the other countries it aired dubbed in their language). Usagi is her original Japanese name, which translates to 'Rabbit in the moon' or 'The Moon's Rabbit'. In the manga when they were still keeping with the English names, they called her Bunny, which made a lot more sense than Serena, lol.

That is my biggest beef with any and all steampunk crossovers. Anime characters/manga characters/comic characters/whatever go through dozens of concept sketches before a final draft is decided on. Meanwhile, "steampunk" fan versions get two drafts tops and always throw brown corsets, bustles, and gears in for no reason at all.

Characters with really memorable or signature colour schemes (in this case, Sailor Moon's white, blue and dark pink) should not be fucked with. Steampunk does not have to have brown by default.

My second biggest beef is that steampunk is supposed to be based on historical fashion, primarily from the Victorian era when we hit the industrial revolution, as fueled by steam. Having influences from other cultures is cool too, but all this lazy add-a-corset-and-a-burlesque-bustle-skirt pisses me off. So much.

When I was first into Sailor Moon, I didn't know how to sew or have a job that could fund cosplay. I did horrible closet cosplay outfits and wore rose earrings and left strands out of my ponytail to look like Makoto, though. Man. I probably got made fun of so much through middle school without knowing it.

I see this whole revival as a chance to cosplay as the characters I never got to when I was younger, now that I know how to sew properly and have a job that can support that aspect of the hobby. So while I understand your impatience with tumblrturds, not all of us who are just now cosplaying from the series are doing it for that reason.

Being a fem male and being a yaoi trans is different, cause they don't bind and go around with tits out, they don't want surgery or to change their bodies or look like men in anyway ever.

The thread about wearing lolita to work, especially at places where it'd stick out or be inappropriate, like at tech startups.

I'm a feminist, but, switch the genders. A guy who wore dandy style (or fuck it, even lolita) to work, even done well, would be laughed at privately and in the thread. Would so many people have posted supportive comments if the person had suggested wearing cosplay to work? Or fetish gear? Or all-Goth clothes? Or fuck it, even /fa/'s goth ninja shit? Being "quirky" does not help professionally, in most cases.

Dress for your job and to get ahead in the workforce if you want to be taken seriously. During the work day, lolita is not appropriate. If there's a costume day, or Halloween, or a work event somewhere where it'd be appropriate, fine.

I've seen lolitas working in the wild. How do I know they were lolitas? They wore lolita to work and stuck out like a sore thumb. One girl I saw was working in the dining hall, nobody else was wearing lolita or inappropriate shoes or a shit ton of makeup and jewelry like her, and it was cringey as fuck.

There's jobs where lolita is probably fine. Working at a brand store. Hot Topic. Maybe a sex shop, it'd depend, most people there have a uniform but if you're willing to make it sexy, maybe they'd be okay with it. A self-owned business (not that it won't effect sales). Maid cafes. Lolita cafes. Maybe modeling (but that's not your own wardrobe usually) or doing guy-with-camera style modeling where you do the kawaii equiv of cheesecake shots. Work at a place where corporate culture encourages or allows lolita, like ModCloth.

You can also do a job where you telecommute, and just wear business clothes for meetings.

As a feminist, I believe people should have the right to pick what they want to do without gender being an issue. It doesn't mean I can't criticize other women's choices though (and they can of course criticize mine). But if you want to work a traditional job, leave the lace in the closet.

I was one of the ones who talked about wearing lolita to my job at a startup.

I think it just really depends on the workplace culture and the people you work with. I don't feel my coworkers respect me any less / take me less seriously because of what I wear. On the contrary, they admire my individuality. Plus, everyone at my job has their weird quirks and "sticks out" in some way.

That said, I feel lucky that this is the case, and I agree that it certainly wouldn't be appropriate everywhere. I'm just saying that it depends on the people you work with.

You know those "other girls vs. me" graphics that sometimes go floating around Facebook or Tumblr or whatever? There's a girl in my lolita comm above the age of 12 who actually thinks that way.

About "preps" and "normies". About other lolitas. About everyone, even her own family.

It drives me up a wall, because she never talks about anything but how marginalised, misunderstood, and ~*~different~*~ she is. I want to shake her and tell her that no, she really isn't all that different from the rest of us. She's just jumping to judgemental conclusions.

I probably shouldn't get irritated but that's not how Cosplay partners work. This is how I've cycled through 7 Zeldas; they all replace me then don't even bother doing the Cosplay.

What gets better is when said friend drops out of the group and you go to replace them because it's your planned group it's suddenly "I'd be hurt if you replaced me! That's my character."

I lost a fucking waist tie how the fuck did I do that my closet was like MICROSCOPIC where COULD IT BE? It was barley deep enough to fit a hanger in and had sliding doors and I'm still so fucking mad about that.
>I LIVED IN ONE ROOM, EVERYTHING WAS IN THAT ROOM, WHERE DID IT GO?

I think that apartment was just cursed, I could never find anything in it. I have 12 fucking meshing tapes, I could never find any of them and forget about scissors or my collection of seam rippers.
I don't know if I just have more space in my one bedroom and therefor have more room to be organized or if I just moved away from the fucking gremlins but I loose less shit somehow.

> if ur cis womyn, u no allowed to bind!!!!

It's one thing if it's a giveaway you're hosting for trans people, but if a cosplayer is asking for binding tips or where to buy one, don't tell them they're not allowed.

Binders don't grow on trees, and they're not rare. They're mass-manufactured, more than likely in sweatshops, which by the way is the only reason to discourage people from buying them.

If my job can allow dressing as i want i don't care if i dress lolita, goth, punk, fairy kei or other fashions. Unless it's a job when you have to wear an uniform, your clothing get damaged or dirty or you are too unconfortable to wear alt fashions, it's acceptable to not wear your favourite style. Maybe at work you don't have to use a wig, tons of makeup, OTT sweet or classic, but a more toned down version, maybe also going for darker colors like black or red, especially if you dress sweet lolita or use a solid jsk/skirt, etc... There are lots ways to dress lolita to work without looking too much. Also some goths have to tone down their styles during work time unless they have a alt boutique or a tattoo shop and related jobs allowing full-alternative looks, even OTT.
I find creepy the part when you said a person wearing lolita fashion could work in a sex shop.... what are you smoking?? Lolita isn't a sexual fashion.
The only part i agree with you is this
> I believe people should have the right to pick what they want to do without gender being an issue

I feel your pain. I've recently added a friend of other cosplay friends; she seemed very sweet in person, if really awkwardly shy and fragile.

I'm usually not so short-tempered with people, especially those younger than me and those I'm not close to, but this chick is just one of those people you want to scream at to toughen the fuck up and stop being so sensitive about everything, I guess.

Actually, some renaissance faires have special days for this. I know the socal one calls it "Time Traveler Weekend" or something. A quick google shows that a ren faire in Pennsylvania is also going to be doing a day theme like this later this year. And one in Florida.

No matter how much advice you give them they just won't stop. I know one girl who does this and it hurts my soul, even more so when she calls it a "cosplay" and reckons we should do a Lolita cosplay with other lolis in future at cons. It's seriously a lost cause.

She's been wearing a lot of similar stuff lately and she's only really got one pose, but she's got two posts on CoF right now wearing that dress and the two coords weren't really different enough to merit two posts in my opinion.
I really wish she'd stop pimping her social media so hard, at least until she gets her shit together a little better. I liked the dessert theme she was going with originally but her three A-Kon coords were clusterfucks and most of her coords could really use a run through the nitpick thread.
