I don't understand how, but my uni's anime club really has gone to shit while I've been there. My freshmen year, it was a bunch of friendly weebs that got together on thursday nights and just chilled out and watched random anime and that was it. Now it's branched out into this monstrosity where we do icebreaker games, people do shitty closet cosplay to the meetings, try to learn japanese and sing vocaloid together and sew bad plush or other crafts, and all sorts of other bullshit. If we even watch anime, it's like one or two episodes of a Funimation dub because we have some sponsorship deal with them so we can go to Katsucon as a group.

Yeah, I only went to my uni's anime club once to see what the deal was. It was really just a handful of people in the back of a lecture hall playing Pokemon on their DS, and a dude up front reading manga by himself. Anime was playing, but no one was watching. According to a friend/long time member, they usually can't decide on what anime to play, and it's usually down to old popular series (like Toonami stuff), rather than the latest craze or vintage anime.
They don't even have discussions about shows, cons, cosplay, or J-pop culture.

For a moment I was like, I have literally never had a bad convention weekend. And then I remembered the con I try very hard not to remember.

> Beg a friend to come with me to a 20K attendance con, it's her first con but I thought it would be super fun to go with her.
> We split up to different things on Saturday after lunch, no big deal, make plans to meet up again at a late night panel later.
> It's a big panel, sit in line for an hour, still get mediocre seats. Friend never shows.
> Panel starts. Realize I have her badge in my bag. Whoops.
> She don't have a phone.
> I don't know what to do, so I figure I'll see if she's at the hotel afterwards.
> She's not.
> She's not at the con.
> It is getting REALLY late and she hasn't shown up.
> Friends looking for her. Room mates looking for her. Con staff looking for her.
> Con staff very worried because there was a shanking outside the con center earlier.
> WHAT
> Start talking about calling the police if we don't find her soon.
> I get a phone call from a room mate to come back to the room ASAP because friend has returned and is in a horrible state.
> Friend was turned away from the door by security at the con center when they didn't have their badge.
> Security wouldn't let them go to the lost & found to check for their badge.
> Friend was raped walking back to the hotel alone in the dark.

The rest is very personal, but I spent the rest of the weekend at the hospital with her.

I want to stress how important it is that if you're going to be at a late night event, you make plans to walk back with other people or budget for a cab. We were young and stupid - it was my first con going to 18+ panels, the hotel was only three blocks away, I had been going to this con for years, and I had never experienced anything like this before. But young and stupid isn't a good enough excuse to have let something like this happen. Be smart. Buddy system that crap.

I always always try to stay with the group because I'm paranoid but sometimes it doesn't work that way. At a con one year a friend and I didn't want to stay late for a panel so we were going to take a bus back to our hotel (it was far from the con center and we had to take public transportation). We got lost at night in an unfamiliar city and our phones died. We were both in cosplay and got more than a few guys shouting at us. We eventually found a taxi and were able to get back. It's a very awful and scary experience. I'm so sorry about what happened to your friend and hope she's alright. I'd probably never go to another con again.

He was angry at us very specifically because nobody considered them "evil enough" to even mention offhand. Like he was straight up convinced we were basically nazi sympathizers because thirdanon didn't consider them "evil enough" to mention in his bare bones rundown. When we tried to placate him by saying they're just a footnote and the immortal naked vampires named after 80's hair bands were the real villains he got even angrier because apparently if you're going to put nazis in something they have to be the absolute root of all evil and can't be treated like incompetent jokes or secondary villains.

And like, he's right? It's the same deal with North Korea except they're actively staging a campaign of outward-facing tomfoolery to make the world think they're a military joke. The more we make fun of the nazi party the less grave the implications of their actions and the circumstances of their rise to power become. But dealing with an autistic dude that melts down over incompetent dumbass manga nazis was not the most fun I've ever had at a con, that's for sure.

Bait but it's for a valid reason they get angry.

1. People who were in the camps are still alive. How fucked up would it be to spend years in a place where you were starved, beaten, treated like cattle and then live out the rest of your life around some idiots going "I don't see why everyone still cares." and even some bigger idiots who dedicate their sad little lives to proclaiming the Holocaust never existed! Then there are the NeoNazis/White Supremacists who want Holocaust 2.0 and are backing Trump with the idea that once he's President they can Heil Trump and have everyone chased out or rounded up and make America as great as Third Reich Germany.

2. People get angry over 9/11 for two reasons:
One, it's basically the biggest act of terrorism on domestic soil and they want to use it for their reasoning to do shitty stuff like blame ALL MUSLIMS. These people need to get over it because what's going on to innocent civilians in cities in the middle east is 10x worse and has gone on for years. We had one terrorist attack and they've been trapped in bombings and fighting ever since.
Two, people knew family and friends that died in 9/11 or suffered mental or physical injuries in 9/11. They'll never get their friends/family back in the first case and in the second, it's a total shitshow where people with breathing problems, cancers, and PTSD and PTSD related issues aren't getting the help they need because government won't pay for it. If you're lucky enough to get into the VA hospital, they're still shitty and you've barely done better than no treatment at all. So yeah, I think people ought to be angry over 9/11 solely because the people that risked their lives to save others are now dying because no one is helping to save them. The government screwed them over badly and they still haven't fully made it right.

It was a few years ago, she's doing better now but it honestly changed her life. A trauma like that isn't something that can be forgotten, only accepted. We went back to the same con the next year to "conquer" it and it was stressful but good. The year after THAT though, we went back again and had a blast. So it's like, trying to overshadow the bad memories with good ones has been good for her. Now she's looking into going to a different con that aligns more with her brand of nerd (I like anime, she's more western comics based).

She didn't sue or file a report with the police, because reliving the trauma wasn't going to be worth it. The american justice system is not kind about these things, and she did not have a supportive family.

Additionally, the security was convention center security, not con staff. So anyone who staffs or organizes a convention, it's a good idea to make sure that any convention center staff is aware of your policies. The actual con staff was extremely helpful when we were searching for her.

The convention center has much deeper pockets and a much higher responsibility for proper training of their professional security. She absolutely should have sued, though she'd probably need a police report to do that successfully. That double relieving of trauma might not have been worth it to her.

Most of us weren't even in "sexy" cosplay. One of my friends, a nozomi cosplayer, got groped.
The rest of the con was fun though.

Was about 2 years ago, no organisation.

(It was before kenny did garen every con and just demolished the rest of us)

I'm the ez under the play button.

Most of the people i met at that con refused to go back to another meet as Riot just fav'd certain people and the rest of the fans were pure cancer.

Much like league online.

Honestly I don't think any meets have went well, ever since Chapman tried to take over as the "Number one League tog" I've shown no interest, he only shoots with hot girls and and Kenny basically.

You realise how boring it is to hear someone talk about how much league they play and they play ARAM right? I'd rather listen to someone who knows what they're doing and getting a good rank because of it.

Infact, honey. I never talk about league or my oh so fun ranked adventures unless someone asks me and even then i'm vague because when you're cosplaying no one gives a shit about how good you are at the game.

Chapman is the reason most people don't go to these events, out of my friend group anyway. It's either him getting cuked again or Smile250 talking about his League knowledge when hes Bronze 3 with zero map awareness.
Honestly when i'm cosplaying from the game I try my hardest not to talk about it (which is odd i know) because no matter what you say, you WILL be wrong in someone's eyes, or some beta who is Gold is trying to impress a sexy Gnar/Poro with this rank.

Context:
>month before, I went out of country for the first time to go to a con with some online friends
>con was horribly organized and we ghosted
>actually had a blast despite that because the people were really fun, I socialized for once and it was my first time doing a non closet cosplay

Skip to a month ago
>time for my local anime con
>they were fun before but now I realize how much more fun I COULD be having
>Start working hard on cosplay
>decide to look up some meets happening at the con
>organize going with dude I was friends with in hs (call him bob) that wants to go
>also organize going with 4chan dude that lives in my city (call him jim)

So even before the con things started to go to shit
Bob kept complaining about not having a cosplay
Wouldn't stop whining and dismissing ideas until I gave in and agreed to make him one
Then wouldn't let me work on it unless he was there
What would he do you ask? nothing because he "didn't have the skills"
(bitch I JUST learned how to do this last week, don't give me any excuses)

Now here comes the con:
Day one
>get there early, bob was at work
>I really wasn't satisfied with the cosplay I made
>nonetheless, people were lining up to take pics, even people who didn't know the show because they liked the design
>bob gets here
>cosplay I made for him looks horrible because he didn't iron it like I told him to
>Decide to go to a panel
>bob doesn't want to so he goes hang out with this dude running a booth in the vendor's room
>have a blast at the panel
>hang out with other guys there until the next panel from the same series
>invite bob multiple times to come

this is pretty much how the conversation went
"Well this convention is really boring so I don't know what to do"
"You shouldn't say it's boring, you barely tried to go to any meets or go to any panels, besides you can just leave if you don't like it here"
"Well it's because I don't like anime"
"Why do you come here then?"
"I like going to comic con, also I like naruto so I can see some stuff here too"
"Naruto isn't even good, I could show you some anime you'd really like and you could enjoy thin con more"
"you can't say naruto isn't good, it's the most popular anime of all time"

at this point I'm just done with this guy and walk out

You may ask why I bothered giving jim a name if he wouldn't be in the story
Well, me too because he didn't show up despite giving meetup times and locations he didn't show up

Oh my god, this happened to me with my SO's friend. He wouldn't even go to a different part of the dealer's room without us. Like, I get it, you don't know many people here, but for god's sake you won't die if my SO and I look for something at a booth 20 feet away from the booth you want to look at.

But at least he didn't vote down any of our plans, he just went with us even if he wanted to do something else. We told him he could go do whatever but he just refused.

He also didn't shower enough and reeked of BO. Like, I can't smell well at all, but I noticed that. And one night when SO and I were ready to go to bed he wouldn't get off of our bed? Like we were under the covers saying good night and he was still on our bed on his computer, even though he had his own bed. SO straight up had to tell him "hey uh can you please sit on your bed" and he joke-whined "Aw, you're kicking me out?"

And those stories don't even cover half of it. Not terrible, but still pretty annoying.

Good. R was so bad that this experience beats out the following year in which I was stuck with P and C after they had broken up, since we already booked the room before the breakup. I also caught con flu that year and felt miserable the whole weekend.

The people in this hobby can be really cruel in really needless ways to your face sometimes. My first OP was a replica my mom bought me. (Obviously neither of us knew of replicas at the time.)

Wore it to a meet. This girl in AP straight up shit talks me to my face, shit talks me to the girl next to her, and basically tells me I have no morals. I didn't even know it was a replica at the time. It completely put me off wearing Lolita simply knowing how... mean people can get right in front of you for not knowing stuff.

And this is why I've just signed out of the whole thing entirely.
If you're "overconfident" and pull out condoms, it's a no go.
If you don't make a move, you're a fucking beta and it's a no go.
You have to find some balance and be clever, or be so hot that nothing you do or don't do matters and the girls are just raring to jump your bones anyway.
Also, there's a a real "any guy that I don't think is a 10/10 is a creep who shouldn't bother trying" factor at work here.

It's not that complicated. Pulling out condoms is literally never okay. You just have to have average looks at best, chemistry with said person, and know how to read body language to gauge whether they would reject you or not. It's not a science it's just about being a functioning human. I love chubby guys even though im a smaller girl, if they have confidence (usually shown by having good conversations with others even if they are introverted) and we have a similar sense of humor then chances are they can easily find someone interested. It's usually socially awkward creeps that flip about not understanding the "balance." Fake it until you make it i guess.

When I was 18 I went to a local college con cosplaying Ramona Flowers and bumped into someone who was in my anime club back in high school. I said hi because "hey remember me? We have talked a total of 5 sentences in high school!" Hey ended up lingering around, and when I tried to pull the "well, I gotta go!" he then decided to follow me. I kept having to introduce him as "X, he and I were in the same anime club a few years ago." During downtime, when we all were sitting on the floor, I noticed him hugging me from behind and start to place his hands on my thigh. Annd then he kissed me. In front of my friends. I didn't do anything because I'm super shocked, and my friends are giving me this look like "Did he just do that???"

When he ended up leaving, my friends were asking me what was going on, and I said that basically I didn't say ANYTHING that insinuated I wanted that, I apologized if it made them uncomfortable (I absolutely DESPISE PDA so I'm always hyper aware), and hoped I wouldn't see him the next day. The next day he ended up following me around again, asking "what are we" and shit like that. I was having a horrible time because I could NOT get away and I felt bad for leading him on, but at the same time he was not reading that I literally hadn't said much to him at all these past few days. My friends were trying to come up with ways to ditch him, but I ended up coming up with the most devious plan I've done: basically I told him I had to go home, he decided if I'm going home then he has no reason to stay at the con. He walked me to my car (he followed me to my car), I drove away, circled around a few times, came back to the con, parked in another parking lot across campus, and came back to where my friends had been hanging out and got to enjoy the last few hours of the con.

I've seen him around a few times since then, but haven't spoken to him. Probably could've handled it better, but fuck that was creepy.

I don't have anything Cgl related, but at Otakon my man was coming back from the con (I was asleep- I don't do Thursday nights after the drive, too tired) and he was cut from his eye to his hairline, jumped for his wallet and dumped off in a park. He woke up at 6am and some nice woman got him an uber that didn't charge him.

He looked like death incarnate - blood everywhere and weeb men kept saying "nice makeup!" When he walked by on our way to urgent care.

The last Cgl related thing that happened to me was some crazy Ita tried to make me feel her underwear to see if she needed to put a new tampon in, because she couldn't reach. (Fat arms too restricted lol.) said fuck that and noped out of there.

Ps he's just a black cat, the con before last he was drugged, and the one before that he fell on his face and had to get stitches in the hotel hallway. I think he has significant brain damage by now. I'm not leaving him out of my sight at cons ever again.

Brisbane cons are usually pretty alright, but OZCC this year was totally dead. They had four stages which were all placed on the con floor and the vendors barely filled the rest of the space in the hall. I know of a bunch of people who went saturday and then decided it wasn't worth going a second day. The only reason I even went Sunday was because I'd already paid for my ticket. Overall there just wasn't anything to do, and artist's alley was about 15 people all up.
Championships of cosplay was dull.

The worst thing that happened that year is my besty heard some French Jews talking shit behind us and turned around on a dime and told them in French to fuck off before she turned them into baguettes. (Or at least that's what she translated. )
Either way they girls looked super surprised and hurt someone else knew their language in dirty ol murrica.

There was a cop conversion happening right before Colossalcon one year?>>9181514
Not to be a dick anon but I think it's amazing you guys are still friends.
If I found out that happened and I was the one holding her badge (aka the reason she couldn't get to safety) I would have never been able to look her in the eye again. Good on you.

This is such a cute friend story. It makes me wanna take a small cosplayer under my wig and safely guide them through cons n shit.

Anon I don't think you understand how hoopskirts work

>>9186062
Yeah. One was actually a shitty "formal" cosplay and the other times were related to my old living history museum job. The cutest probably was when handing out fliers for our annual ghost tour during the town's Halloween parade and I hear a child scream ARIEL and dive under my skirt. Her mom had to drag her out because apparently thermal flannel pettis and a hoopskirt make a very appealing child size tent on a chilly October night.

Glad it evoked something other than rage/terror for once. I tried to keep it super vague so I wouldn't end up outing Senpai but I wanted to brag on him so much even though we're no longer close due to distance because of how far he's come.

>>9192591
Do it! I know it really helped me a lot and got me into doing more conventions and more cosplay because despite of how big time Senpai seemed to be to a little weeb like me, he was always really sweet and always took the time to meet with me at least a little each convention no matter how busy he was running an event or practicing to perform.

>If you're "overconfident" and pull out condoms, it's a no go.
>If you don't make a move, you're a fucking beta and it's a no go.

Yeah, and if you stay away from water you die of dehydration, but if you get all the water you can you drown! All these contradictions are so confusing. Maybe you should just kill yourself!
