This is less of a feel and more of a confession, but I figure this is a good place to ask.

I’m 100% white but I was born with sort of Asian-like features, especially my eyes and round face. In high school I was a closeted weeb, and did my best to hide my power level. I did, however, convince a bunch of people that I was a quarter Japanese when I first got into cosplay and everyone believed me. To this day, at 22 years old, most of my cosplay friends other than my best friend still believe I’m part Japanese. They even tell people, “Anon is actually a quarter Japanese! Pretty neat, huh?” and ask me questions about my supposed heritage.

I’m past my weeb phase and wondering if I should tell the truth or keep rolling with it. I feel like a complete ass living a lie and giving people who are actually ¼ a bad name, but I don’t want my friends to think less of me.

What should do I do?

>> No.8100318

>>8100301
Honestly anon, if you're certain none of your cosplay friends will ever be in risk of finding out the truth (from meeting your family or something), then I'd say you don't have to tell the truth. It could cause more harm than it's worth. It also depends on how close you are with those friends. If you consider them your real, very close friends then I think continuing to pretend around them is a bit mean. Next time the subject of your heritage comes up, you could simply say "yeah, there's something I wanted to talk to you about that" and tell them that it's actually not true and that you had a weebphase when you were a teen and you just didn't know how to say it. It's not like it's a touchy subject in that it hurts or involves someone else, and your friends should understand if they're cosplayers too since they probably also had a weebphase.

honestly? tell the truth to your closest friends and just don't mention it ever again to the people you don't know well enough.
I used to be a weeb myself as well as a child with a bit of an over-active imagination (think Tracy Beaker), except people eventually found out and I didn't really need to tell anyone but my closest friends who oddly enough still don't hate me despite it all. It had been proper embarrassing but that's really a low price to pay.
In retrospect, it was dumb but I don't understand why some people get as upset as they do over it. It's just dumb teenage shit, now I feel bad about it but I don't consider it as bad as the shit some weebs did, so I don't think you should worry about it too much and you aren't giving anyone a bad name. Just get it over with and try to pick up the pieces.

>tfw have to lie about which country I come from because people start to ignore me or treating me like shit if I say where I'm actually from
>if they knew they would blame all the bad things I do (accidentally) on me being from that country/ethnicity
I am white and don't really look typical of any particular place, so it goes well. I'm just irritated that when I do complain about it to people who don't have this problem, they always tell me I'm imagining it and that nobody cares because they've never experienced it personally.
I don't even feel bad about lying about it, it's nobody's business and I don't feel the need to explain myself to anyone. I'm just scared of the inevitable Streisand effect because I still don't want to lie and become reluctant to do it when people ask me where I'm from. Like the thing with Tommy Wiseau and people snooping around his public records because he didn't want to tell people where he was from.

because it makes you a liar and breaks their trust. They don't know what else you've been lying about, and they don't know if you'll lie again. What if you've been lying about something important, are they sure they can still trust you? How do they know you're not doing some skeevy shit, or secretly laughing at/taking advantage of how gullible they are? It might not seem like a big deal to you, but you have to think of the implications which makes it a huge deal to others, even if it's a small white lie.

Yeah, I'll probably tell a few of my closer friends because they don't deserve to be lied to and I'm sure they'll forgive me, even if they get annoyed at first. I'm beginning to think it would be a really bad idea to tell the people who aren't close to me, as some of my acquaintances are pretty judgmental people, and one of them is actually full Japanese so she'd probably hate me for it. They'll probably spread rumors about me too, I've seen them do it to other cosplayers.

Weight that comes on fast is very easy to lose. I gained 8 pounds over winter break myself but lost it all within a few weeks.

Just eat extremely healthy for the next few weeks (no cheats whatsoever). Try to limit starchy carbs (like rice, bread, cereal, corn, and potatoes) as much as possible, get some lean protein in you (fish, lean meats, greek yogurt, etc), and cut down on sugar. Definitely exercise too, but what you eat is really what will determine how much weight you lose.

>>8100764
>Pics?
I'd rather not, but I will say that I've been told by several people that my celebrity look-a-like is Bjork when she was young. Though the only things that are really similar are the eyes and hair color, I have a much smaller mouth and lack dem cheekbones.

Thanks for the advice ! I'm still early in the series, so there isn't a girl I really like to the point of wanting to cosplay her (though Lisa Lisa is awesome), but I'm sure I'll find one as I progress through the story.

Bjork is actually 100% Icelandic, it's just a mix of features she inherited that caused her to look a certain way. Not all Nordic people have light hair, there are plenty of us with dark hair too. I'm 100% Norwegian myself and look similar to her so it's not completely unheard of.

Björk is 100% Icelandic actually. You also have the Saami who sometimes look similar.
Also you need to remember that people with dark hair and eyes exist here too, and that a lot of natural blondes here are actually mousy, ashy blonde but bleach their hair lighter.
Americans have these stereotypes that if you're from x country you have to look like y otherwise you must be mixed, when that is not always the case. People come in all shapes and sizes. I remember some Irish girl mentioning on here that people in the US tried to convince her that she's mixed because she has dark hair or something.
Just like not all Italians have dark hair, eyes and tan skin.

Thanks, mom, dad.

If it didn't hurt so much I wouldn't even care, but I took two naproxen sodium like 5 hours ago (they should last 12 hours) and I'm already in so much pain I'm nauseous again. I'm 98 lbs, my body can't handle that much medication so I have no choice but to deal with it.

I can't carry my bags whn I go shopping, even a small purse-like backpack with a few pill bottles and my sunglasses makes my shoulders ache. Thankfully my SO is understanding and will carry heavy (heavy to me, not him) things for me, but it's so frustrating being so... useless.

My parents, I guess, expect me to pay for all my medical bills on my own, but even with insurance it costs at least $25 every time I just go in to the doctor for any reason, and the surgery for some reason isn't covered.

Look man those kinds of people are bullshit.
I'm not saying they aren't depressed, I'm saying they're rotten for saying something like that to you.
To go anecdotal on you for a bit, the only time I've ever told any of my friends I was having plans was when I was at my wits end.
I'm talking EVERYTHING went to shit, and not like drama that /cgl/ considers drama, I mean like my parents were almost divorced and my family almost fell completely apart.
And I didn't tell them out of demand for pity or compliance, I told them because I was broken.
And that's only because they could tell something was wrong and I gave in when they convinced me I could trust them.
And I've been on the receiving end of that kind of emotional crisis, where someones at the brink of completely falling.
It's hell for all parties involved.
And to take that, the sheer trust you've got to have in one another to confide in someone that you feel like this.
And to twist it into a threat, a way to manipulate you into doing what they want by ripping apart the deepest part of your heart.
That shit is just disgusting.
Never put up with that shit.

Seconding this anon.

Sadly I've been (and am) very close to several clinically depressed people and while it can be very difficult and draining, there is a difference between people who have an illness they can't cope with and assume it (no matter how shit it gets) and those who use it to manipulate others.

I'd never expect a depressed friend to force themselves to express joy when they're just not able to, but they also know not to go planting seeds of doom deliberately in every relationship they have. Often they'll feel like that's what they're doing just by being depressed, let alone by even saying anything about it. I suppose it's a more complex issue than that and sometimes people aren't aware they're doing it, but you've got to be really careful with how involved you are with those types.

It sounds to me like you're not supporting people who need help because you care, just that people in your life may be struggling with depression but are forcing it down your throat at any occasion, and that's no good for anyone.

I seriously doubt any of these 3 would ever actually try to kill themselves so they're not forcing me to do anything by saying it, it just pisses me off so much that they make these grabs for attention with threats. And when I back away they just continue this "See, everyone always leaves me. I'm not important to anyone" shit. If I said anything I would be the bad guy and they'd be victims in yet another way.
They were fun before they started this but I don't know if they're ever going to become reasonable again. Some of their other friends will rush to deliver asspats whenever they can. But I'm not doing that.

You could try cosplaying male characters with more baggy clothing? Cosplaying guys with tight pants might give you away though. the best you can do is lose as much weight as possible because thicker thighs on top of wide hips are a dead give away, but not necessarily hips by themselves if you've got skinny legs (depending on your characters clothes, of course)

>> No.8101966

>>8101230
I have relatively wide hips but I've always managed to pull off a male character. Your best bet is using characters with non skin tight clothing as that will instantly be a giveaway, when it comes to trousers try baggy or straight legs not tapered or skinny as that will show off your thighs and be a dead giveaway

Sadly I think you've got us all too curious about the dress now.

Never in my life has anyone, especially men, bought me clothing I liked without me seeing it first. Of course your boyfriend was really sweet, and I don't think you could've not hurt his feelings over it... But hopefully he can understand why these purchases are better made with you there in the future (if anything, just to make sure something fits right), even if he chooses it.

For the time being I'm sure there's something you can do... Is there any way you can make it part of the character, so it doesn't just feel to you like people will see you and think you have no sense of how to dress yourself? Not that it honestly matters at a LARP, and I guess your prime concern is actually being able to move around in it argh.

Recently I suspected that I had a mental imbalance due to depression. Went to several doctors and the said I was fine. Found out (that I already know) that my stomach pain and depressions are all due to extreme stress.

>Extreme stress due to past abuse, rape, and dropping out of college from ex bf
>Extreme stress due to mother calling my job drunk and getting me fired
>Extreme stress due to living with said mother because my other relatives won't take me in and she fights with my equally drunk uncle
>Extreme stress due to working a part time job and trying to get a full time job with no college degree in the last four years
>No friends, no boyfriend, and none of my relatives care outside of pity obligation

Seriously I want to kill myself. The only thing keeping me sane and from doing so is cosplaying and talking with fellow people about anime/video games/cosplays. I was stupid enough to try to get a degree in Game art and Design without considering the job market and even more so when I went to a shelter just to avoid my ex bf and mother.

My only consolation is that she doesn't know a good place to get an extra panel sewn into her brand so she can't actually wear any of it.

Poster you referred to here, how did what I say bother you? Is it because I referred to generalised behaviour?

I wasn't trying to imply that people with depression are more prone to manipulation, just that some people combine manipulative behaviour with other mental issues and that can be really difficult to deal with as a friend. You can only really make judgement on these issues with first hand knowledge of the people involved, and even then we all tend to be very complicated.

Having suicidal thoughts alone isn't what'd make you manipulative or crazy, and if anything it's probably safer if you have people in your life who know you're dealing with that kind of struggle. I'm really sorry you were made to feel so awful and confessed it to someone only for people to use it to single you out and make fun of you. That's just as out of order.

If the freeloader is on their lease all they can do is wait until the lease is up and then move. In the US at least. Or break the lease and move. The latter is how I had to dumb a freeloading ex. Until the lease was up he had legal right to be in the apartment despite not having any money.

My bf and i have been having sex less and less lately. I asked him about it earlier, if he feels less attracted to me and he just said he "doesn't see the point" in having sex anymore. Obviously this upset me pretty bad and i'm not sure what to think now. Do i spend too much time talking about frilly dresses, do i annoy him or what? I feel like this is my fault somehow but i'm not like a sex maniac or anything, i like to feel close to my partner sometimes though, this fucking hurts.

Nope. And my parents sold their house and moved states away last semester so I had to find a place to live quickly to finish up my grad program. And since I live in a college town, what with landlords gouging rent $500+/month, living on my own would mean intentionally drowning myself in debt.

League does that, it's either you get good or get ready to lose friends. I've lost two because I',m so bad at the game(which I find amusing, since my ranked win rate in Dota increases in proportion t how badly I'm losing in LoL)

What I'm just sad about is that LoL is so well-entrenched in the West Coast cosplay community that for some reason, Elo actually matters to a lot of cosplayers. I just honestly wish It's like Portland where at least it's a split between Dota's MMR and LoL's Elo.

My boyfriend plays non-stop and at first I tried to tolerate it but he literally does nothing but play, eat, and sleep all day.
Not to mention he plays until maybe 3AM in the morning, and I have to constantly remind him to shush because his roommates have gotten upset at him before for yelling at night.
I mean, I guess I'm really selfish by being like this but I really wish he would pay attention to me more; he'll barely react when I try to talk to him, even if it's important, and it gets pretty depressing after a couple months of this shit.

Sometimes I try to get into league too so I can play with him, but I'm really bad at it.
He's always playing ranked games with his friends so I cant even hop along.

Unrelated: I've been getting really into the character designs though, thinking of cosplaying some of them. A lot of the designs are slutty af though, and I've always done modest cosplays. Oh well. Battle bunny riven here we go.

I'm the same way. I like to look nice but at the same time my wardrobe isn't really that varied and I don't personally see the point in spending a lot on clothes but I'm not going to force my preferences on anyone else and it sounds like that's what he's doing with you.

I think lolita is fucking brilliant though and if I was a woman, I'd probably be just as into the fashion as you. The costs seem steep but it's not really any more money than I spend on my enthusiast level PC or videogames in the long run.

being isolated/one-on-one made me even worse - i was fine totally 100% on my own with work but i apparently had to have someone watching over me like a hawk - and eventually it was decided i should go to the aforementioned tard school.

its a pretty long and confusing story, but trust me it makes sense (and is an almost certain fact) that it was anxiety and not autism causing the problem.

I have a learning disability and I'm part of a tutoring program at college right now that mostly caters to aspies and retards.

I hear you on the tard rages, almost every week as I'm trying to do my fucking math in a tutoring room there's always somebody throwing a screaming tantrum in a neighboring one.

I hate that a lot of people with asperger's are so arrogant and think they're entitled to behave like toddlers because "muh disability requires special treatment and understanding". Like fuck, having a disability that doesn't affect your intelligence is no excuse to not better yourself. What's worse is that parents and autism organizations often defend their actions and declare that all people with autism should be excused from their bad behavior, including those who act violently and shoot up schools. All my rage.

Sorry for the rant, I'm just so frustrated with these people it's unreal.

She probably does notice you, and your presence makes her happy, but she will not consider you as anything but a good fan.

It's partially due to the way you're idolizing her right now. How well do you really know her? How well do you know her faults? Do you like her, or what she does, or your fantasy of her? That's the kind of thing I wonder when a fan starts becoming overtly friendly with me. It's not impossible for a fan to transition into a friend, but it's difficult to open up to someone when you don't want to lose them [your fan] and it feels like you're walking on eggshells all the time.

By the way, your online presence should mean jackshit when you want to befriend someone.

Thank you so much, Anon. I really appreciate your insightful and honest opinion.

Some of the things you've mentioned have crossed my mind... On one hand, you're totally right; I really don't know much about her as a person other than what she's revealed about herself online and what I've seen of her personality from her comments/interactions with her friends and acquaintances. On the other, I would love to be able to get closer to her and actually learn more about her and what type of person she truly is.

Your words both grounded me and gave me hope, if that makes sense. I suppose I'm happy knowing that my presence at least brings her some happiness, even if it will only ever be from afar. You were very sweet to take the time to reply to me, thanks again. I feel much more clear-headed now, and I'll definitely put a lot of consideration into what you've said.

Honestly to me this sounds like a completely one sided story.

We don't know if anon is actually a slob and the bf is annoyed because he works and pays for rent and everything and she does nothing in return but do some kind of shitty mango drawings.

I don't mean to completely dismiss your feelings anon because it does sound like your bf is being pretty inconsiderate and also a controlling ass, but I'm always wary when I read these stories and more context is really needed to form an opinion. If anything I hope your situtation is as straightforward as you put it. Keep up drawing and improve so he can shove his unsupportive comments. Maybe he's just worried you'll put lots of time into art and get nothing back from it when you have other areas of your life to be worrying about... But that really does sound too optimistic from what you said. I think part of me reads this and thinks "why are you even with someone like that in the first place".

That sounds like me, and I'm mentally ill.
She probably has emotional problems. I'm not saying that excuses things, but try not to let her know when you're pissed off at her when she's acting retarded. It'll only escalate things and either one or both of you will end up crying.
Try being completely blank and allowing her to take a second look at her own shitty actions. She'll probably suffer and stew in her own autism, won't be able to stand it and will inevitably stay out of your way from that point on and/or apologize in a bit.
I mean it's completely possible she's just a fucking brat, but if she's always like this and hasn't learned how to not act this way from any previous confrontations...

>> No.8107711

>>8107663
We've tried everything. Believe me. She's always saying things about how our mom "Doesn't care about us" or "Is putting her needs over ours". I also learned an hour ago that she had told our mom that I was the one threatening to throw shit at her, but she could see through the bullshit.

>>8107699
I don't think she does, but it wouldn't surprise me at this point. She's always been kind of a brat, but she only really started escalating since she first started dating her BF. He and his entire family are mentally ill. I could list all of the sick shit they have said and done to our family, but I really do not want to delve too deep into our family's personal life

It's good that you're able to see what's wrong there, I have a few good friends with autism who are awesome people but most autistic people I've met are a nightmare to be around. I was diagnosed with bipolar disorder when I was young and nobody ever gave me a molecule worth of sympathy for my outbursts. I'm glad they didn't because I can't imagine what I'd be like now if I was constantly told I was a perfect angel and didn't need to change.

It sucks that some people have to deal with autism and other disabilities, but if certain behavior is wrong for a non-disabled person, it's just as wrong for a disabled person.

Does anyone else ever have nightmares about not being ready for their con?
I always have dreams about showing up and forgetting stuff, or my partner not bothering to bring their matching cosplays, or not having anything prepared.
I can't be the only one, can I?

>> No.8107833

>>8107830
I've had dreams where something really embarrassing happens to me at a con, like slipping and falling on my ass in front of a ton of people or my costume falling off randomly so I'm naked. I also have recurring dreams where I gain a ton of weight right before the con.

Never had one about forgetting stuff though. Don't give my brain ideas. ;___;

>> No.8107841

>>8107830
Yeah, I've always had dreams the night before a con of getting there and forgetting something crucial from my costumes, or even worse like forgetting plane/train tickets.
Because of it I try not to sleep the night before a con.

Guildwars ruined my friend group.

Two of our best friend group of five got insanely involved in guildwars, so the rest of us bought it to make an effort with them.
TFW they play every day for 8+hrs and they think they're hot shit and are incredibly nasty to the rest of us..

Idgi, they were such sweet hearts before when we all played other games together.

Shit sucks

I hate myself. I lost weight easily last year over the summer and I didn't even exercise.
Why is it so hard now? Why can't I deal with stress normally?

I just dyed my hair a lighter shade of my natural color to cover my gray hair (I have shitty genes that make me go gray prematurely, though being under a lot of stress adds to that).

Stress actually causes the body to put on weight easier. Also: Gut bacteria.

I got into lolita to socialize, since I found it pretty and there is quite a big community in my city.
I stayed in lolita because I met a few very good friends in there.
But now, I've drifted apart from those girls and they go to meets while I stay here. They never tell me about the meets, they want me to stay in stupid FB groups which I avoid like the pest.
But they could just tell me privately about the meets?
I guess I am not that important anyways.
I feel like not dressing in lolita anymore. Afterall, the real reason I wore lolita was because I had fun at the meets. But now that they don't call me for the meets, it seems stupid.
