What he failed to mention is that not only did he produce OG Teen Titans and Teen Titans Go!, he's also the motherfucking president of WB Animation Studios.

Ladies, I want you level with me on this.

Why is that women love attention and the male gaze when it's from desirable looking men but as soon as an ugly dude looks at you you consider that visual rape, or that they're 'undressing' you with their eyes.

Do you find that it's a double standard when you're staring and checking out hot guys and objectifyin them as well?

People in general of all gender, race, and ethnicity, don't like unattractive people as much as they like attractive people.

Also, attractiveness is at least 50% in bearing, personality, and composure. People don't like the sensation of desperation. Think of walking through the mall, and some salesperson for a product you don't want starts coming towards you and making small talk, clearly just waiting for the opportune time to throw in their sales pitch. There is a tangible feeling of desperation or imposition hanging in the air, and that same feeling is present in many cases when a desperate person is talking to somebody they're attracted to. It is an unnerving and uncomfortable feeling.


That being said, unless you are physically malformed, there are a ton of things you can do to boost attractiveness, from better hygiene to better clothing, to diet and exercise. There are ways to practice your charisma to become more congenial. It isn't a list cause.

While I do believe these people exist in stories like this, most of them are kept in the basement and only make comments like this online. There is a need to help push the idea that cosplay is not consent because the nerd crowd attracts a lot of unstable people, but I believe some of these stories blow it fat too out of proportion. Even the first one seems so far gone from reality that I can't accept that everyone at a tabletop meet would be ok and repeat the comment "Old enough to bleed, old enough to breed" to a 14 year old girl.

This dude just likes pissing people off and wanting to be the center of attention, even if it's negative. He did this a few years ago where he created an imposter fursuit based on a famous furry's (Lemonade Coyote) who had died a little before hand in a car accident. Poor guy was on duty as an EMS and a drunk driver hit the ambulance that he and another crew member were in.

He claimed it was in "honor" but it was just to piss people off. The community got nuts and he was forced to give up the fursuit. This past year he wanted to be in the spotlight again and created that confederate fursuit. Once again he was forced to put the suit away or else he was going to get banned/removed from the con.

A few years back I had this random little canvas mini clutch/oversized coin purse in my purse for holding tampons and liners. This dude (maybe mid teens?) saw it as I was looking for my phone at a gathering and asked for a pic of it. I was like ??? Ok but it's just a $5 piece of shit from Target.
He then said it was so cute and asked for me to take a picture of him holding it. I said there was nothing in it but he insisted. I took a picture of him holding it. He then thanked me, did not ask for the pic of him holding the bag, and left.

Furries might have a shitty rep but I can tell you when they lose one of their own most of them have such deep respect. Even if they didn't know the person. However...

It isn't exactly complicated anon.
First you get your ass to the gym and start lifting. None of that pansy-ass cardio or conditioning shit - you lift. Squats, deads, military, rear delt raises, all that good stuff.
Then you start eating properly. Cut out junk food an excess sugar and get healthy food filled with complex carbs like brown rice and lean protein. Cook your own food so you know what's in them instead of supermarket own-brand horse meat.
Then you start reading. Classical history, philosophy, masculinity and self-improvement.
Then you'll notice more success with women. If you don't put in the time and effort, you'll get nothing back.

Next month I'm going to MCM. I've got a hotel booked, logistics planned, supplies taken care of, transport booked, threads sorted and I've started my latest bout of NoFap to make sure I'm hungry for it on a test high when I'm approaching con girls.

Yeah, normally the con is very good, and used to be my favorite next to Ohayocon (Though ohayocon got too big, and went downhill)

But the owners jen and jason decided to cancel A&G this year last min, and said they didnt want to do A&G anymore.

the rest of the staff urged them to do it, and Ken took over the con, which caused him to move it to a new (and bad) location, and at horrible time of the year, where there was a con last week, and next week, which killed attendance, and killed most events. any events jason had to do, he bailed on, after the 1st wrestling event.

we were very short staffed, due to issues that came from this.

over all, that was the worst A&G has ever been.

Though I'm sorry to hear you were being harassed, I would suggest talking to the head staff at any convention you go to about harassment.

(I won't lie though, I'm jealous. Not to try and insult you by that comment. I had people touch me, but only after asking me very politely.)

most of the peopel here lightly touched on attraction, there are 2 other issues at hand here.

(1) it used to be risky for a woman to reproduce with the "wrong" man. (since childbrith used to have a rather high chance of death for human mothers) so being "picky" is normal.

(2) both genders are instinctually programmed to be more fearful of males, and less fearful of females, and more so fearful of adults, and less fearful of children.
(more so the later, than the former, but they overlap)

Women evolved to take up childish features, such as less body hair, less facial hair, not having deeper voices, not being as tall or muscular as the average male, etc.
This in turn makes people around them to be more trusting of them, and less inclined to treat them as "stanger danger"
When a woman gazes at most males or female, they dont feel in danger, but when a male gazes at most males or females, they feel uncomfortable or in danger. But that is slightly overwritten if they are attracted to the person. (The "bad boy" is someone they are attracted to, but still feel slightly in danger around)

technically its not a wig, as its "parts" you connect to your hair.
But my hair was too light for anything they had at my local shop, which made me buy a lot, since my hair is actually longer than the parts.
Eventually came up with a way to fold my hair into 2 pigtails on the side, and made the big curls to hide my natural hair behind them.

You know, this raises something that's been an issue for me at cons for a while now. I'm a pretty normal, well-adjusted guy, but I'm also REALLY into anime. I often meet people like this at cons, and it leaves me really torn and feeling guilty, because on one hand it's fun talking to people who share my interests, but on the other hand they're often just so awkward and spergy that I can't help but cringe and not want to be around them or be seen with them. The hardest part is when they're really not that bad, but evening comes around and I want to go to parties and have to figure out to tell them that they can't come.

I crossdressed at a con once, when I was a lot younger and could pass pretty well. (Wasn't into crossdressing, but people kept telling me I should do it and I was like 17 and liked the attention.) I ended up spending the day getting followed around and hit on by this big fat middle-aged black guy who wasn't even there for the con. He didn't do anything too appropriate, but it was really creepy and annoying, and even after I told him I wasn't into that and to fuck off, he kept lurking around like 100ft behind me and shadowing me. Finally, I realized that he didn't have a badge, so I went in the dealer's hall for like an hour and he was gone when I came back out.

Fast forward ten years or so, and my friends always give me shit for not approaching random women and hitting on them at cons. They don't know this story, so I can't tell them that it's because I know EXACTLY what it feels like.

To the ccomment about creepers following crossdressers, I can agree its "creepy", but I just have a hard time getting aggressive with people, or hating them for being creepy. If anything I feel bad for them, because I slightly understand what its like on the opposite side when I'm dressed as a normal guy. (Granted Ive never straight up followed a person, because I dont want to be creepy, but ive been called creepy just for walking up to people to say hi.)

I just let them go ahead, and went on doing my thing.

Then again, I hear stories of groping (which I might like, or not like, but even if I dont like it, I dont really do much about it, other than ask they dont.) but at cons I never come across this, so it always surprises me when ppl talk about it. (I sort of think they just bump into people, and assume people are gropping them due to being paranoid, but then again, I can just be plain wrong.)

As a prior poster mentioned, they saw a guy groping, and the girls didnt notice.

So its possible I didnt notice, or I forgot, because I'm too much of a slut, and dont think about it.

I think in general for big meet ups/shoots at cons, the ""young folks"" or those like minded are usually the loud and obnoxious ones. Generally finding people in cosplay on the outskirts are a good way to judge if they're super obnoxious or not and since they're cosplaying, the level of cosplay helps judge too.

Please don't be. At the time I was a twenty year old insecure little shit who could only feel sorry for himself. I was so afraid of getting hurt by anyone I liked, that I would spend my days living deep within the friend zone. I would give it my all to ensure that none of my beloved (lady) friends would ever turn their backs on me, even if it meant late night travels just so I can help them with their relationship troubles. I was worse than the average neckbeard and actually felt proud to feel connected to (pre-rebuild) Shinji, the biggest whiny little bitch in anime history.

That night however, changed everything. It was the night I finally grew a pair and took action. That night I learned it is better to go out and get hurt, rather than continue living inside some safe, made-up fantasy world where no-one could ever get to me. And sure, the pain of rejection is hard and bitter, but every now and then you find yourself getting lucky. Instead of getting hurt you get to find true happiness, which is worth any and all pain. If it wasn't for her and that moment, I would probably still be living inside that unhealthy safe fantasy world of mine and would had never found happiness. For that, I am grateful and will always have a special place in my heart reserved for her, even though she probably doesn't even know how much it all meant to me.

tl;dr: I used to be a self-entitled little shit until I realized it is better to actually live inside the real world rather than a fantasy.

In retrospect, everything about that confession was poorly timed, terribly worded and extremely cringe worthy. As for her running away screaming, it wasn't the first time she pulled such a stunt after a guy had let her know he was into her. She had a rough past and avoided love like it was lethal, something I refused to keep in mind due to being all delusional about how everything would be different because "it was me".

Don't ever trust the CTCon escalator high-fives. You seriously can't even get on one without someone trying to high-five every person they pass going the other way.
They always bitch or give a dirty look when I don't do it, but dude, that's gross. Touching the hands of basically everyone in the con is fucking nasty, don't take it personally.

Case by case. For really popular fandoms I definitely look out for higher level cosplay just because that usually indicates that they probably have a job? The really spergy people I've noticed at least at sports anime meet ups are the unstyled wigs from ebay and still crinkled from being folded uniforms and then obviously the loudness. Also sometimes a good thing to look for are people in cosplay who have nice cameras, especially if they're hanging out around the edge-again, a good indication they have a job and aren't super loud and cringey.

The running away yelling is sort of extreme, but definitely try to hold in your feelings until the end of event. I confessed to a guy I liked in the middle of a con since he was a friend and rooming with us and it was so, so awkward after he said he'd rather just be friends but also was still in our room for another night. I can understand getting the courage in the middle of a hype weekend like con, but definitely way more cringe. Also now that I think about it, I probably ruined that guy's con since he was a really nice dude and was tipping toeing around me all weekend after I confessed. Being in the same hotel room didn't give him any chance to take a step back or not be embarrassed either. It just ruined the weekend for both of us.

THAT'S SO COOL!!

I have a similar story…
>San Diego Comic Con 2013
>Cosplaying as Book!Hiccup from How to Train Your Dragon with my husband as Movie!Hiccup
>I make a baby Deadly Nadder for my husband and a Terrible Terror for me (Book!Hiccup's dragon is basically a Terror)
>I can only get my husband to cosplay for one day, so I have both dragons the rest of the time
>Hear that there's a Deadly Nadder from the live How to Train Your Dragon stage show out and about so I stop by a booth that was said to have info on that
>Guy chatting with people at the booth, looks kinda familiar
>HOLY SHIT IT'S DEAN DEBLOIS, (one of) THE DIRECTOR(s) OF THE MOVIE(s)
>Freak out internally
>"Oh hey!" He says, "Book!Hiccup! And you even have Toothless!"
>This guy. THIS GUUUUYYYYYYY. I CAN'T BELIEVE HE KNOWS I'M NOT JUST A RANDOM VIKING AT A GLANCE
>We take some photos together
>I nearly cry from happiness

I found that Nadder I was looking for later too:
>HUGE crowd around it
>There's a StageVersion!Hiccup as the handler and for people to also take pictures with
>The crowd is mostly moms and their young children
>I'm totally stuck in place because of this crowd
>Suddenly the Nadder SCREECHES and charges my direction
>It had seen my baby Nadder and leans into the crowd to nuzzle it
>Crowd gets out of the big dragon's way and I take the opportunity to get my picture
The Hiccup handler was NOT pleased and hissed, "You're not a child, why do you want a picture?" And amusingly my husband wasn't able to get any clear shots just because the crowd was that packed

Some of the posts in this thread raise a question that I've had in the back of my head for a while about cons, and I'm curious to get seagull opinions.

At what point does a guy's age make him "creepy" in the con scene? From another angle, if a guy is around 30, what age of girls at cons is appropriate to approach?

I'm finding myself in this boat lately, got out of an LTR a couple years back and I'm finding that I'm not meeting single girls around my age at all in the scene, at least not any I'm interested in, and then when I do hit it off with a single girl she turns out to be 22 or something, and it feels kinda creepy to me.

I know the rule people always go with is "half your age +7," which would be 21-22 for me, but I see so many complaints about "creepy older guys" in these threads that it kind of makes me worry.

I was actually friendly with a couple guys and ladies in their 30s when I was a teenage weeb. Even looking back now, I don't really find it to be that weird, though thinking about the situation without the details does sound kinda weird. The ones I was friendly with never gave me creeper vibes, although I could tell with one that he probably made women older than me feel a little creeped by him, but I was too young and so he was just friendly. Definitely an awkward with the ladies type. That's just from a friend perspective, though. If an older guy was to hit on me, as a 26 year old I'd probably be okay with up to a 40 year old, I guess? If he's cosplaying an older heart throb like Auron from FF10 then I don't give a fuck how old he is, though.

its an opinion, so there is no "absolute rule" that covers everyones opinion on it.

And honestly, the actual definition of "Creepy" to girls, is not scary/wrong, but it's a literal translation of "Not attractive".

If you were some famous movie star they were head over heels, it doesnt matter if you were 10 years older than them. (and honestly most relationships I know of, in the 30-60 range, usually have 1 partner being 5-10 years different, but when you're younger, that age gap makes for a lot of awkward conversations, due to lack of experience from the younger party.

I'm 30, and get a lot of girls who hit on me at cons, because I look 18-23-~ish to most of them.
I crossdressed, and looked a little bit younger, and some of the same girls who hit on me friday, were all for me saturday, and when they realized I was the same person sunday, they didn't care, nor that I was 30.

It boils down to attractions sadly.

creepy doesn't mean unattractive, it means unaware of boundaries and social norms. unfortunately unnattractive people have less chance to learn these norms and are more likely to come off as creepy because of that.

someone can be hot as fuck but if they're sperging all over the place or following someone around all day, waiting in the shadows, they're still fucking creepy.

>> No.8974972

>>8974958
Not to come off as rude, but you just contradicted yourself.

You said creepy doesnt mean unattractive, then say an attractive person who isnt attractive is creepy.

(And assuming its due to a lack of understanding how attractions are different for the average female compared to the average male, a males behavior/actions are far more attractive/unattractive than their looks are. Looks get your foot in the door, but the rest is up to their behavior, while looks for a girl gets them into the house for a few weeks/years)

but ignoring that, you generally got the idea of what I mean, since what you said falls into the attraction category.

i was more talking about how there's a correlation, but it's not the cause. there's overlap of looking a certain way and acting a certain way. my point is that people aren't called creepy for looks but behavior. it's just that unattractive people might not get a chance to learn how to not act so inept or may be way too pushy because they never learned when to back off because they haven't had the practice.

At Otakon last year my skirt got caught on my low-hanging backpack for who knows how long before someone told me.

I always assume that a lot of cosplayers only really wear skirts, or at least short ones, for cosplay, so they're not really used to keeping track of them. That's at least been the case with the cosplayers I've dated.

It's sort of become a running joke in my group that I tend to always be the one to get flashed, usually by people I really didn't want to be flashed by. I think everybody I know has learned to recognize the quick head turn away and expression I make when it happens, haha.

I'll admit, it's pretty hard to tell somebody that they're having a wardrobe malfunction, especially knowing the level of embarrassment and awkwardness it'll inevitably lead to. I've been having conversations with cosplayers and suddenly a boob or worse will pop out, and it's hard not to be a bit of a deer in the headlights for a second before I manage to say something. It happens a lot during photoshoots too, but for whatever reason cosplayers don't usually seem to be bothered by it then.

Sage water can be a life-saver. Alternatively you can look into mint oil if you're allergic to pollen. Both give a pretty nice cooling sensation.

And like everyone mentioned, hydrate. A lot.
