Steven Hawking was a one of the great contributors to the cosplay community. Without him we wouldn't have space animes therefore no space cosplay. Think about it a whole genre gone just like that if it weren't for our lovable rolling dweeb. I'm surprise us seagulls don't have a thread up dedicated to Mr. Hawking. I'm going to ask my gf to make a space coor and wear it while we watch star wars to give this great man a send off he deserve.

That's commonplace anywhere now. Honestly, vapes would've likely never been banned widespread in public had companies not sought to make the smoke cloud stupid huge. The majority of places only banned vaping after it became a trend to have the liquid produce an ungodly cloud of smoke that envelopes the entirety of the surrounding. They have to because otherwise it only will take a few people vaping to make the whole damn place look like it is on fire.

It was pretty bad seeing his mother's reaction.

Generally, if someone is feeling suicidal, they probably will mention it in some way. Straight out asking "do you really want to die?" when you have suspicions is one method of detection, though them post/browsing suicidal blogs or making vagueposts about wanting to die are other kinds of red flags. Really, especially if you're just strangers, it's hard to tell and even harder to help.

The best thing you can probably do is just be a kind person to others. This applies to cons, online, and anywhere else really.

While there’s certainly internal factors coming into play when someone does something like this, I don’t think there’s any denying that just being kind could help stray a lot people away from making such a drastic decision. Even in the cosplay and lolita communities, would it not be better if people just dropped the unnecessary drama and pettiness? I’m sure we’ve all read posts in the feels threads about people wanting to kill themselves or know of a cosplayer or lolita who took their own life. If someone’s thinking about doing that, people being needlessly mean isn’t going to help. People join these hobbies to have fun; what do they do when even that which they once enjoyed becomes a source of pain for them? Which is partially why I think the ita and bad cosplay threads are bullshit, as there’s ways to give concrit that don’t involve tearing other people down, but that’s an issue for another time.

Its sad that these victims cry out and we can't even see it.

When I was in high school my small school ~400 students had 2 suicides in one month. We had a big meeting in tge auditorium. Where tgey talked about preventiin. They gave us buisness cards with the suicide prevention hotline on it. Kids used tge card as a form if bulling. They we avalible on every teachers desk and the office kids plastered lockers and desks with them. That year and summer saw two more suicides.

If i could go back give the victims a hug and tell them i love them I would. If you think someone's gonna do it treat it like they have a gun to their head tell them how much they mean too you.

I‘m salty about a seller.

I bought a rare bag in what she called ‚perfect condition“. I know the bag is older, but what arrived is not a perfect condition.
Two edges are slowly starting to peel off. The inner lining is overall dirty/dusty and is showing signs of wear. Also there are two small indents on the back.

Am I being unreasonable? It‘s not visible when worn, but upon further inspection it simply has small signs of wear. But I simply paid a good price for it and expected it in a better condition.

I‘m almost considering just selling it, but I doubt I can get my money back.
Not gonna tell names until it’s completely resolved. I messaged her about it and I‘ll see if she responds.

Tried on my first moitie dress today, and it feels like a revelation. Even though it has no shirring, it feels like the bust and waist measurements are perfect. Other brands unshirred are always loose on the waist or tight in the bust for me. I'm pretty much married to my Meta and IW, but I'm seriously tempted to scrap 3/4ths of my classic wardrobe and become a dedicated Moitie fan.

One of them fits fine but god, the one that I was really excited to coord isn't fitting at all. I have a quite large chest so usually I have to rely on partial/full back shirring, but the shirring isn't being stretched at all on the dress.

I'm in the same boat, I could have written the exact same post.
Except in my case, the seller got salty with me for giving honest feedback. She listed it as 'Like New', bag had stains and missing parts, and she argues that unless the zipper is broken or the bag has rips, stains and missing parts are still 'Like New'. Honey, that's minor damage.
Now that she's given retaliation feedback because I didn't ask her directly for money to have it washed and fixed (which I wasn't looking for, I wanted other buyers to know that she doesn't list items correctly), I'm waiting for LM to address my feedback dispute.

Next step is paypal dispute. You should take it up with paypal too.

Former twig gone /fit/ here. >>9818017 and >>9818118 are on the right track. You can build muscle up anywhere on the body. You can even help saggy tits with the right exercise. Just make sure you are doing the right routine for the right shape you are going for, and to consider your current ass shape when choosing your routine. The most common are in the pic provided.

There is no one size fits all ass workout, as with any workout really, as everyone bodies are different. So you'll need to figure out what kind of ass you have, and build your workout routine based around its current weaknesses and strengths. There are layers of muscle in the ass and hips that you'll have to look at, and decide what to put the most effort into. And some you may not want to touch at all depending on your current ass shape. There are 3 major ass muscles and several other connecting muscles that build your rear.

For example the A shape may need a little more backwards lift and inner thigh reduction. but not much attention in the outer hip area. Where as the H shape will need to focus on building the outer glutes and hips to round out the shape, same with the V but they will focus on lower muscle groups.

I'm still salty that I'm the only one that left her negative feedback. The other positive feedback she's gotten described problems with the description and her non-communication as well.

This pretty much. Build the muscle underneath, and the prominent ones surrounding it depending on the type of droop. It will pull the fatty tissues and glands up a bit as the flesh under it builds up. Also building mass in that area will make them look a little fuller, which offsets some of the droop effect as well. Chest flys helped me a lot as I had that fatty bullshit that would sit in my armpits and bulge up in my bras.

Also SPOT REDUCTION IS A MYTH!!! You lose fat overall when you workout/eat right. However focusing on building a certain spot makes it look like spot reduction, but all you are doing is building the muscle up which mitigates the appearance of fat in that area.

Example would be building up your legs more than your core. You still have the same level of fat everywhere. But your legs are much more defined by muscle than fat now. Where as your unused core has very little muscle. So the fat there will be much more apparent and 'doughy'.

I'll help you stay strong anon. These girls will literally try to make you their fucking life. It's also awkward as shit when they have their friends around because chances are you're the only person who's ever going to have your shit together in the group. That won't keep everyone from judging you though. Your mother (if you care about her opinion) won't ever look at you the same way too. To top it all off though, if that girl gets pregnant she's more likely to keep it. Also younger people are fucking boring as hell these days because they either have shitty hobbies or are really terrible at everything, yet insist they're passionate about it. I'm a bit younger than you, and it was always too much trouble for me to deal with even a while ago. If you don't throw out the idea completely, be a platonic friend for a little while and see how you feel about it in a few months of getting to know them.

"Get help"
Says someone who has never truly experienced the depths of depression. True depression can't be "helped" it's just who you are. The only "help" is keeping a tank of helium in your closet so you can feel comfort in the fact that your life is always just a few minutes from ending when you want the moment to come.

NATRT but if they went to therapy for 12 years I highly doubt they stood with just 1 and didn't switch at least a handful of times to different ones. They're edgy but I see what they mean. Even being in a city where there's competitive choices for therapy it's hard to find one who can actually help. Part of the problem is that you can't be helped if your depression is crippling enough to keep you from doing what is needed for your own mental health. For many people like Robin Williams, who undoubtedly had the social circle and financial resources to get all the help he could need, suicide is inevitable.

I hate how frustrated that Anon is, but I can empathize with it. I really think people truly don't understand just how debilitating depression can be. It isn't as simple as "get help" or "go outside" or "talk to friends." In fact, just suggesting those things in the first place is doing more damage, because most people in that situation have undoubtedly already tried those, they're methods parroted everywhere by everyone. You aren't dropping any new information onto them, just reaffirming the belief that people don't truly understand their pain and that no advice given will ever be helpful.

Just food for thought. Anon needs to chill but they're probably tired of seeing the same basic advice again and again. Obviously it does help some with depression, but there are different severities of depression to take into account.

So real talk, if it already pisses off your islamic family to dress up in cosplay why even keep the hijab and not opt for a long haired wig? It's not even your real hair. Seriously, if you live in the US wearing a hijab is by your own choice. It doesn't look good and again, a wig is just as modest.
I just really dislike people who feel the need to bring their religion into secular cosplay. I used to know a girl that would always wear cross necklaces even with cosplay and it was pretty fucking dumb.

The fact therapy and medication didn't help you does not make your depression more "real" or "true" then somebody who had success with therapy and medication. You're just being insulting.

That specific part was the biggest strawman bullshit I've ever seen. It's hilarious how they made bitter seagull and lolcow commentary that could only ever exist online into an IRL bullying situation. Total victimhood fanfiction.

It just baffles me that anyone would think PAX East wouldn't ban someone on the spot for racist speech and harrassment, especially if it was against a muslim cosplayer. Letting that kind of occurance just slip would completely defame the con. Better yet how there was absolutely no one in that scenario fawning over her, calling her brave, and taking her pictures so that they can be the first to earn a gorillion Reddit karma/Instagram likes/etc. because that's more likely what would actually happen given the crowd PAX East ACTUALLY gets.

Besides, most racists know how to internalize their racist thoughts offline. It's usually total tards that can't keep their mouth shut that get in big trouble for saying very stupid shit.

It is dementia with lewy bodies. The same protein is associated with Parkinson's, but they're completely different disorders.

I’m so mad at myself. While I was living with my friends, I kept telling myself this isn’t healthy, but I kept doing what they were doing anyway. I still have a month and a half, but I’ve been having a hard time getting back down to my previous weight which is frustrating.

How do I make friends /cgl/?

I'm 24 and within the last year lost most of my core friend groups. Some shitty shit went down and I felt like I had to draw some lines with a couple people, and unfortunately that lead to me being ditched by just about everyone. I don't regret any of it, except that it's left me kind of lonely.

I have my boyfriend who couldn't be better, but besides that I really don't have any... Actual friends. I have acquaintances, coworkers, people who like my Facebook posts or whatever, but no one I'm actually close to or spend time with besides him. I thought that I'd be okay with that and I was for a long time, but I'm wanting to get more into cosplay again recently (feeling too old for that is a whole different feel, but) and since he isn't into it much, it's not something I wanna bother him with all the time.

I have no idea how to meet people, though. I didn't have to worry about making friends for a long time and now I'm clueless. I comment on people's posts and try to interact but obviously that shit's pretty shallow and most people aren't into getting to know people like that, I'm sure...

I don't know. I'm not too high maintenance or needy but I'm feeling like a fucking clingy rando trying to reach out to people like this and continually being passed by for people they're actually friends with lol. Not to mention most people active in cosplay groups are like children to me at this point. I don't know. I just feel lost.

Join the cosplay group - they may surprise you.

I was in a similar situation as you a while back. My boyfriend encouraged me to be more active in my lolita group. I didn’t think it was a solution because I am the oldest in the group, but the comm turned out to be made up of some of the smartest, articulate, friendliest people I have ever come across.

Give it a go and put no expectations on it. You may not make a close friend but there will be social interaction that you don’t get with your boyfriend and that will fill the gap.

I think cons are a bad way to make friends. You should join some meetup groups or comms in town or groups with a social purpose. Even then, it can be hard. Most of my friends are from work or school still, and if you're busy with a job, it can be hard finding the time to go to those meetup groups. They have people in there you're going to see at least monthly, so it gives a baseline to work off of. It's scary (I have bad social anxiety too) but give it a go. The worst is that you tried something at least.

I didn't get into cons until I was 25. I didn't get into cosplay until I was 27. Feels like I missed out on a lot of stupid fun. It also turns cons into a small minefield of interaction with people who might be 10 years younger than myself. Thankfully, I have a big group of friends to enjoy cons with, but I would like to make more connections outside of that.

>>9820582
It's to filter out men too insecure to actually talk with women in my experience. Yes, there's a large number of details from attraction to time before you ask them out, but it's mostly to weed out men who lack the confidence to take the first step. I find it helps to just pretend I'm an asshole who doesn't care. Guys always complain about girls dating assholes, so they must be doing something right. It also forces you to put girls you're attracted to on an even level where you talk to them like people instead of something you desire to please.

>>9819984
Ask them to go drinking with you. That works for me a lot. A lot of cons have board game rooms, and it's a great place to break the ice with people. It requires a little courage to cold call someone like that, but you have to ask yourself if you're more afraid of being alone or being rejected. A lot of people are just as lonely as you are, and they're also too afraid to ask.

Most girls don’t go to cons to find a relationship. They’re going to dress up and have fun with their friends. If you genuinely want to start a relationship with someone you see at a con, chat them up a little, but don’t hit on them. If you flirt at the con they’ll likely think you’re just another con creep. Just talk to them like a normal person and see if they want to exchange social media info. You can then talk to them after the con and if you don’t come on strong like a creep, then maybe something will develop.

Sarcasm aside, it's not mean. Blaming women for not wanting to be bothered by someone too afraid to even try is bullshit. Too many guys get egotistical about this stuff, and just blame women for things they ultimately should have control over. I can't control what a single woman likes. I can only appeal to her interests and hope I don't fuck up. Most women seem to like confidence, so I think good advice is to try to find a little of it.

This thread really went places while I was hiking.
I got ya. In fact I empathize with them. I just had a bad thing happen to me during a rough stretch of my life which served as a catalyst for developing wonky ideas about and resentment towards women. I took hearing that men were this or that and how you're a bad person for hitting on someone completely at face value, because I didn't know any better. Combined with the already mentioned incident, I stayed away from women, even intentionally making a few who approached me feel bad about themselves. Luckily, I recently figured out what was going wrong in me head, so I actually reached out and spoke to some people I trusted. Things are already looking up in just the three short weeks since I made this decision.
There's hope for us all

Women aren't normal people, they're basically not even real people.

They're like retarded childish clones.

Ever wonder why people say "how do I attract women", as if they're one collective group of clones, rather than different individual humans?

No one even questions it, because AWALT.

You're all fucking retarded, simple-minded, interchangeable except for how you look, and if it wasn't for your sex appeal, you'd be worthless.

If you were born as men, you'd be incels. You complain about how you're lonely even though you have a boyfriend. You'd fucking kill yourselves if you were men, and learned what actual loneliness is.

My lolita crush failed her butthole inspection again this year. It's her third failure, so she's out of the comm now. I'm so sad, I'm just crying and masturbating while wearing the burando I bought from her leaving sale. Our comm leader has no mercy, and now my crush is going to become a fat grey normie. And she had just finally agreed to go on a date with me...

But beauty does not guarantee the pink and healthy pucker necessary to pass on your comm's butthole inspection day.

I get you. I had some rough experiences with girls growing up. I can't say how it compares with you, but it left me bitter and feeling like there wasn't any hope. While it might take time, it's important to let the bitterness go. If that's too hard, put it away when the girl you care about is in the room. It isn't healthy, and will do a lot to torpedo any girl unfortunate enough to try and get close to you.

I'm fairly certain our experiences were quite different. I hate to sound like a snowflake, but not a lot of folks really get the particular incident. Even my father can't really relate. The good news is, the more I talk about it, the better it gets. It's been very helpful to know what's been causing all of the wonky conscious and unconscious thought processes holding me back

as aggressively insecure as gulls can be, man do I love this board.
as a lolita I'm def biased, but it's wonderful to not have to guard myself and wade through tons of delusional woman-hate posts just to find discussion.

That's not much of a concern if you're just going to kill yourself otherwise. You've got nothing to lose.
