One of the cosplayers my age is a total attention whore. She would post rant status everyday and it is all annoying. She recently kept posting photos of her in bras and undies. She also claims those were not nudity. She kicked out one of my friends from their dance group and to be honest they never had any progress with it. I am happy my friend is no longer part of that. Since they obviously don't have any results, I heard she is now meddling with the more famous and better dance group with cosplayers older than us. I wish she just stops.

There's no comm in my area., only a facebook otaku group. I meet there a girl who likes ouji and lolita fashion so we're like internet friend now. Her dream is to become a designer and create her lolita indie brand. I'm torn between my admiration for her because she's trying to make her dream come true, and the fact that she's still an ita. I never told her what I think of her handmade item and try to be only positive and supportive to her. I'm afraid if I told her exactly how ita I think she is, she don't want to be friend with me anymore. What should I do?

It wasn't crazy drama or anything, more that she was just so random and so obviously thirsty for everyone in the room (despite having a boyfriend? But maybe they're open. Who's to judge). I was just super uncomfortable and disappointed to meet a crazy bi chick at a con because in my sheltered little idealistic world, LGBTQ people are all sweet lovely perfect people who are thoughtful and respectful of boundaries.

Ex friends have become popular in my local cosplay con for whatever reason and I feel like I'll never be able to make friends with people without them restarting drama that's almost 5 years old or sending death threats (like they did when shit went down 5 years ago, and they did with my friends when they decided to cut ties with them). Kinda wanna just say fuck it because I'm planning on leaving my town soon anyways but at the same time I'm gonna be here at least another year or two, why sacrifice friends because they're cunts? Also,

sounds hard. I understand that that there is something that comes up when you have strong convictions towards cheaters. I would say agree to disagree for now, not worth losing a friend over but maybe you can try to get your friend to understand why thats cruel and makes you uncomfortable. I'm sure neither of you would want to be without the other, she probably just feels better than the girl who makes fun of her for sleeping with the girls bf. these types of things suck sorry anon

Seeing everyone having fun in cool groups together leaves me extremely depressed and more and more every day I legit feel like killing myself. I don't even know why I go to cons anymore but it's better than shutting myself in. I can strike up conversations but I feel like bridging that final gap seems impossible, and the few friends I manage to add barely reply or anything other than add me as another number on their friends list.

I just want weeb friends so bad but there aren't any other places to meet people into anime other than cons and my school doesn't have a club.

I'm legit considering ending it but at the same time I want to keep fighting to bridge that gap but every failure leaves me a further wreck.

It would depend on why she did it. The only exception for me personally would be if shes just a bitch and wanted to break them up then shes just a bitch and you can keep being friends until you see her starting to/if at all turn on you. If shes a homewrecker and a cheat those types of people will never truly be friends with people because they will put their needs before their friends. If you get a boyfriend and she wants to fuck him, well to her your friendship and fact that you would be dating him wont get in her way to your man. Healthy friendships are hard to come by these days. Just a thought tho but keep your eye out and be safe anon. Dont wanna end up a classic /cgl/ greentext story.

So shes already sharing pretty much softcore porn bra and panty shots.If shes underage she may slip up and post something somewhere or give nudes to someone overage and its technically sharing child porn so theres that scary thing young people forget...

I feel so mad because some boys in the street were talking out loud about me wearing lolita
"she got daddy issues"
"mental illness comes in all styles i guess"
And it made me feel so so angry, i never reply because i don't want to start a fight, i always answer extremely calmly and stay polite and calm if i ever get harassed, which usually drives them away because no fun reaction, but holy fuck do i wish i could talk back and slap them with some sassy comebacks sometimes. Also i pretend not to care but sometimes i can't help it but hear what people say and it kinda hurts me afterwards if i think about it. I'm sick and tired of people thinking that because you wear pastels and cutesy shit you "want to stay a child" or are "retarded" for wearing something that doesn't harm anyone and makes you happy, sick and tired of people being assholes (friend of mine got ketchup thrown at her, spit on, and i got my lunchbox tipped over by bitches, chalk powder in my hair,... when i was back in high school,) just because of someone wearing different clothes. How does it harm you? It's fucking clothes you retarded fuck.

Anon, I understand wanting compliments but why nudes out of all things? Compliments are even less genuine on the internet for the most part.

While I don't think it makes you a *slut* persay, it is a bit questionable.

It's a bit different to sending to a bf, not doing it for the sole purpose to get compliments.

And the fact that it made you feel so bad about yourself, is tall tale sign that maybe there's a reason spreading nudes of yourself online isn't a great idea.

I've come to the sad realization that I can't handle conventions because of the amount of hamplanets and autists I seem to attract. I wish I could just enjoy anime with non-mentally ill people with a normal BMI.

If there was a lolita comm where I lived or if I could go with a friend or a group that I felt comfortable with then this wouldn't be an issue but I'm really tired of getting mistreated by people who are legitimate wastes of space.

I know I sound like a gigantic asshole but IRL I'm way too nice and fairly spineless/naive, and I've been burned out by shitty people before. I'm just trying to look out for myself, even if it means I have to give a cold shoulder to others.

She didn't say she expected no judgment, but a loyal friend shouldn't flip over something so unrelated to their relationship. It's not like anon shoved her nudes in her friend's face and got mad when her friend was repulsed. The fool is her friend.

I'm sympathetic to this anon because I had a friend like that- weirdly obsessed and judgmental about my romantic life. My friend CRIED and got INCREDIBLY pissed at me because I didn't tell her I lost my virginity until months later (ironically, I later found out she lost hers years ago and hadn't told me), then she spread rumors that I was a slutty drunk girl to friends and people I had cut ties with.

I have been hanging out with a certain group for a long time now. They are all "cool", pretty, popular and have never done anything mean or rude to me. Despite this, I can't help but always feel like there is some sort of wall between me and them. I am in the group but not "in" in the group. I've been making attempts to reach out but no matter how well things seem to go I never seem to click with them quite as well as I want to. I always feel like I am being a bother when I message any of them to chat, can't think of anything interesting to say most of the time, it always feels like something is off.

I just want those instagram cosplay group moments that I always see these semi popular cosplayers have. Like Lordcreepypeepee on instagram seems to have so much fun with her con friends and I wish I had that. My bf isn't too into cosplay either. He wants to cosplay, but isn't as passionate about it like I am and never wants to engage in cosplay making conversation. I recently met this one girl working at Joann's she's a frequent customer that cosplays, but it just also seems like she added me to her friend list just to look like she has a lot of friends. My friend that I have been best friends with since the 6th grade moved to Baltimore due to an unfortunate event and I can barely talk to her nowadays. She's really into cosplay like me, but she has to give it up because she's in debt with art school and she's moving all the way to Hong Kong for it. I'm also really shitty with socializing.

You sound uneducated. If we are talking about sex (biologically) then there is a third sex called "intersex". If we are talking about gender (social norms), not everyone has to act in strictly male or female behavior norms, pressuring someone to do that is basically idiotic. They/them is only gender neutral. In my language we don't even have gender spesific pronouns. That's why I think feeling entitled to call people with different words based on their reproductive organs and/or how they look and act is also idiotic.

I think it's okay anon. I tried posting nudes a couple times because sometimes compliments from complete strangers are the only meaningful ones. Your bf may tell you you look like a goddess but he is probably telling this just to keep you happy and/or he loves you and doesn't actually sees your flaws. Same goes for family and friends too, it doesn't help it you are feeling like shit though. But internet? It'll tell you if you are landwhale without batting an eye. And if it says you are beautiful, you ARE beautiful.

>> No.9090727

I see no problem with posting nudes. It's okay to be proud of your body or to like getting compliments (who doesn't honestly?). I've posted always wanted to do a lingerie or boudoir shoot but haven't because I know a lot of people that know me wouldn't expect it and would likely think something was wrong with me :/

Your friend shouldn't have judged you like that, especially if you were close. Even if she didn't approve, she didn't have to try to shame you for it. People are going to have differing views on it but friends should be able to overcome that. Hopefully you guys can fix things but, if not, you're probably better off

I stopped talking to one of my friends because she started pitying herself way too much.
We were actually kinda close, or at least I tried my best but it was like if we became a bit too close she'd stop talking to me for days. Like literally ignore me.
And then she'd suddenly link me this tumblr post and be all fangirling like she didn't ignore me for a week straight. And whenever I talked to her about it she'd be like "work was a bit stressful, sorry"
I moved to another city earlier this year so we haven't hung out really, but she started ignoring me more often.
When I confronted her with it, telling her it hurt because I felt like she didn't care for me at all, she broke down and cried "I'm sorry work and my mom :'("
I mean she always rant about her mom but she never TALKS to her mom about the things that hurt her. I really tried helping her, but she'd rather rant and whine rather than actually fixing her problems and it just became TOO much for me in the end.
She even had really low self esteem and she had self destructive thoughts. She KNOW I've gone through the same and am working on it but she'd never accept my help or let me listen to her problems. But she'd comment on her "uglyness" and "how much of a loser she is" EVERY. SINGLE. DAY.
Like calling yourself thrash is standard for gulls I guess, but when your friends listens and know it ain't no joke. It isn't funny anymore. Whenever I wanted to talk about my problems she'd just go "mmh. That suck" and change the subject.
She even told me to FIX THINGS WITH MY MOM BECAUSE SHE DIDN'T LIKE TO HEAR ABOUT IT. Like ok, I think she meant "I feel really sorry for you having such a shitty mom, I can't bear hearing my nice friend being hurt every day" but then tell me THAT

Imo what I dislike about cylluma is that she is an uneducated childish keyboard warrior who takes to facebook because she thinks people care. She carries no maturity or self-awareness about her and despite how many times people tell her to stop, she doesn't. Madi may be unreliable but she is an intelligent human who knows who and what she wants to be around, hence her particular evasion to groups and cosplays she plans. In the long term, I can see Madi improve as a cosplayer and PK improve as a self entitled tumblr user. Being that our community is better open to people who show improvement and genuine passion rather than rant for their likes; I would as a mature member argue Madi shines in a better third party light.

My nose and oddly structured face aren't going to pull anything. Not even fat enough to pull off chubby characters, but with my body in the right area for absolutely anything to look wrong, cosplaying is a thing I'll have to put on the shelf.

She's 21 and I'm 18, she doesn't have a job,still lives with her parents, her mom also has cancer, only cares about cosplaying and going to cons instead of helping out her mom. She literally cried because we can't room together so she can get a cheaper room. I get that she maybe feels tied down by her mom, but if she can't go to EVERY anime convention in Florida, she is going to bite someone's head off. The only way she's getting by is selling all her weeb shit. When I roomed with her she brought in someone in our hotel room in the middle of the night (may I add it was on the first night) and she barely interacted with us. The friend that she brought was really cool and nice and became me and my bf's best friends over the couple of weeks of talking after the con. Also after the con was over we found out he paid for her ticket and also was her ride to the con. The friend she brought also didn't know her that well either, she was just a friend of his gf he had at the time and that's how they became friends.

Anyway she just acts like a fucking child and threw a tantrum just because I wasn't financially able to go. I explained that my dogs having to go to the vet and my rent isn't under my control and also if she isn't financially stable maybe she shouldn't go as well. She couldn't get the concept of sometimes we have to sacrifice things. She was literally whining at me like a child how she has to get her way. She only talks to me when there's a convention she wants to go to or if I want to buy her shit. I showed the whole convo to my bf and the guy that became our best friend the convo and they were all like "Glad we finally know who she really is. Never rooming with her for anything or talking to her ever again."

me and my gf are exhibitionists. something we like to do is post nudes of each other online. it's easy to find places to post hers where they're well-received, but i'm not so lucky. i actually have a great body, but it seems like the majority of gross dudes that saturate places like /soc/ with mangled dickpics and hairy buttholes scare away any women that might want to see some nice abs or obliques.

it's fun for me to post her nudes and all, but we'd both like to post mine too. if anything, i have the better body between the two of us but there just aren't any opportunities to show off.

I had to cut ties from an extremely toxic person in my life during the winter. The last straw in an extremely tiring friendship being when she tried to pity party her way out of paying her part of a con hotel room. She claimed she couldn't pay because she was almost murdered in a parking lot. I tried to cut ties quietly but she continually messaged me and harassed me. Finally I messaged her and asked her to leave me alone. that I wouldn't cause drama and I ask the same of her. She agrees but soon after blocks me. A few days later my friend gives me a screenshot where she's detailed a huge falsified sob story painting me and a friend of mine monsters. In it she details...
-Our initials
-What cosplays we will be wearing at the upcoming con
-What hotel we are staying at.

And then essentially puts out a plea for white knights to come attack us. She tags almost everyone in our cosplay comm. This backfires as people begin to pop off on her and tell her what she is doing isn't legal. She deletes the status and a few months pass without incident.

However I recently heard from a mutual friend that she refuses to let this go and does nothing but trash talk me. She claims I "Send demons after her on a regular basis" (I'm wiccan and she took that to mean I worship the devil) I'm just pissed because I've worked so hard to put things behind me and she won't let it die

>Seeing everyone having fun in cool groups together leaves me extremely depressed and more and more every day I legit feel like killing myself

The only reason I haven't gotten to this point is because I was able to make friends at one point.

but that was when I lived in the US, which was from 2004 to 2012. Personal shit forced me and my family to move back to our home country. Some of it was my fault, some of it falls on my parents.

They know I have no friends in our country, but of course they talk like it's my fault at times, and then they're surprised when I fire back at them.

What gets me down is that I actually met decent anime fans at college. There's no anime clubs in the country, the concept of after school clubs is non-existant here, so I'm guessing this is why I have yet to see cringe inducing anime fans.

But it's college, so with just the amount of shit we have to study, there's no time to hang out. Either that, or they already have an established group of friends and no one feels like getting me into them.

Yikes, anon - that girl sounds like a huge pain. I know you want to put it behind but if she makes threats like that again, I'd suggest screencapping them just in case. I went through a similar thing a while back and this person ended up posting online about having dreams about murdering me. It's been years and now she's escalated to calling my boyfriend a rapist. Having screencaps of her erratic behavior might come in handy if she tries to pull similar shit with you and smear your name with new people.

Anon, never set yourself on fire to keep someone else warm. Grow a backbone and stand up for yourself.

I'm so fucking tired of self-righteous pricks who complain that inspiration threads don't post what they want. If you're constantly bitching about stuff that you don't see, then post some inspiration of your own! It's not rocket science! Don't shit up the boards with your whining unless you actually contribute.

I shouldn't say that I gave up on it completely, because I probably will try it at some point of my life. But god damn it was disheartening to hear

There are so many self taught people in this hobby that "oh i never learned how" is a lazy excuse. Tell them they better learn.

Man back when I first knit something for a cosplay and got a couple salty people drop comments like "I could have done that too if I knew how to knit"
Bitch I didn't know how to knit until I made this shit. No excuses.
Tell your friends to fucking learn like you did.

"He's toxic and probably abusive for getting jealous like that. Leave him." What is this Tumblr?
k to him and get him more involved . If he's being such a jealous pansy invite him to cosplay with you and you guy friends. Make plans where the husband can meet your friends and see how you interact. Squash his doubts like a bug.

So there's this girl I used to be best friends with for a couple years, I got her into the local cosplay community, my local LGBT community, etc. Our friendship was toxic, she was really physically abusive, one day we were heading to a cos meet and she pushed me over on an escalator and laughed, and everyone else around laughed at me, which made me freak out a little.
I guess I was bad in the friendship too, but it was mainly because she had no manners and didn't know how to act in public. She always walked around screaming at the top of her lungs, smacking me and being rude to everyone around her, but as soon as I tell her to cut it out because she's being annoying, she turns into the world's biggest crybaby and becomes the victim.
She also fucked most of my guy friends in the cosplay community and caught feelings for them, and when they said they didn't have feelings for her, she constantly talked shit about them(keep in mind she's underage and these guys are like 18+).
I'm honestly so glad I cut her off, but I regret introducing her into the cosplay community because now we have the same friends and I can't go anywhere without hearing about her or seeing her and it fucking pisses me off because she's such a shitty person. :/

My local comm mod always talks big game anti bullying, makes rules against bullying (you'll be kicked out of the comm if you get caught on cgl according to her) and then when she finally bans someone from the comm she goes full open season on them, publicly making status and chatting with friends about how to insult them and conspiring throwing shade when they see the banned person post on CoF

like what the fuck?? It pisses me off so much.

There's too much fucking pression in the lolita fashion to be creative and unique or to stand out.
I wear lolita in the most traditional for and I hate seeing so many plastering their coords with unnecessary showy shit just for e-fame.

Oh I have screencaps of everything just in case. I posted some of them when she pulled it. After that everyone realized what she was doing and forced her to back off. That's why she resorted to telling people I send demons after her.

The majority of people I see who make amazing cosplays and offer commissions are also illiterate as fuck and I refuse to work with someone who clearly cant read and write.

Good news! I went to SDCC and cosplayed the entire time, posed with all sorts of people, fiancee didn't say a thing, didn't seem to mind. He didn't even flinch when a girl screamed "OH MY GOD YOU'RE COSPLAYING AS MY HUSBANDO" and we took some cutesy couple shots. I think he's finally realized that cosplay is make believe and truly is no threat to my… fidelity… I suppose.
