I used to use patreon for cosplay funds, but now I'd rather just get money through personal sales.

There's nothing wrong with selling 'sexy' cosplay photos, I just use the cash to commission cosplays I actually really care about. (Which are the ones I don't post to Instagram)

Cgl overreacts at Patreon cosplayers bc they think they don't deserve the money or attention, but don't realize there's always going to be a bigger market for hot babes than cosplay.

I've talked to many people on this and most of the people opposed feel that this behavior brands their hobby as a fetish when that's not what it's about for most people. Remember that most of the people purchasing these pictures have very little interest cosplay skills and it also presents another negative idea that only attractive people can cosplay. It also attracts thirsty nerds with unhealthy social ideas to conventions.

Same as the Jnighs stuff. Nobody really cares that she's selling bikini shots to make money, they hate that she is the "most famous cosplayer" when what she does is harmful to the community as a whole and doesn't represent us at all.

Why would I ever give a woman money for pictures no matter how sexy when there is, with absolute certainty, a more attractive woman out there giving them away for free?

None of you are that attractive and none of you are that appealing. You are all just ordinary women, and there is nothing special about you.

>> No.9930011

>>9929721
Because cosplay models are rarely as attractive as real models and are just appealing to thirsty men. Even real models don’t really sell just pictures of themselves anymore. I don’t know a single man who buys this shit, but from time to time i do see a “male” at a convention buying something or signing up for something from a kiosk with a bunch of uninterested girls in cosplay outfits who are clearly feigning any interest in being there and talking to them, for shit like calendars or photos.

Porn is free and there’s a million women on Tumblr alone who post hundreds of free pics in all sorts of shit just because they enjoy it, why would I or any other self respecting human involve ourselves in a business that literally has no reason to exist anymore?

There are women who do this FOR FREE. The only audience this “market” will ever attract are the most desperate and disturbed of biological “males”. I won’t call them men because they don’t deserve it.

dont buy the cow when you can get the milk for free. i'm friends with a dude that runs the main Con in my local area, and yes, the hot cosplay women are hired to model, and know nothing of the things they're portraying, they just know lewd=nerd boners=ez$.

sucks women get a free ride when they're attractive, but attractive dudes get easy hot bitches. less than attractive women get side lined by most guys, and less than attractive men are undesirable to all women's (hot or not) artificially inflated sense of demand for them in media (implying "beauty at any shape" propaganda)

blame how socializing has changed. now we all just use apps/sites to date anyone from any distance based solely on their appearance, rather than their personal merits. also, beta males are exposed to alpha women through the internet as well, conflating their sense of potential mates and appearance expectations.

easy solution. Know your personal SMV (sexual market value), dont lie to yourself, and play within those parameters.

you can increase your SMV by actually doing something with yourself, rather than whining on 4chan like a typical incel. women are fucking predictable, so play their game. if you're unlucky enough to have been born with a busted face, you're shit out of luck. but if you dont, and can actually do something with yourself, fucking do it. then fix how you socialize.

I honestly wouldn't care about costhots at all if only they'd stop calling it cosplay. Be honest darling, you're a sex worker, there's nothing wrong with that and no shame in that, money is money, just don't drag my hobby into it. Fandom porn has been a thing for ages, just because you slap on a ginger wig with your red bikini doesn't mean you're suddenly cosplaying Asuka.
I don't mind that people are getting paid for lewds, god knows there will always be a market for that, but by calling it "cosplay" they're enforcing the stereotype that all girls just want to cosplay for the money and want guys to jerk off to their pics, which not all of us actually want.

i get this, but it's still "Cosplay", even if you dont like the lewd fringe portion of it.

Cosplay is still when you take on the role of a specific character from a series/franchise, be it dressing up to look exactly like the character, or additionally going so far as to roleplay as said character.

otherwise, it's larping if you're just dressing up in stylized clothing, and not a specific character. Lolita, School Uniform, Renaissance, etc.

All cats are mammals. all dogs are mammals. all dogs are not cats, but they're all mammals.

however, would you consider swimsuit modeling for normies to be sex work? or victoria secret/lingerie modeling to be sex work? they're paid, and males likely get off to it. the target market is different, but the same end results happen.

lewd cosplay has a stigma to revealing cosplay, but it's no different than poor quality cosplay looking cringy (stigma) to someone outside looking in.

i enjoy making cosplay, and seeing cosplay, especially when it's top notch quality, lewd or modest. but you cant claim "Not my Cosplay" if thots be making money off idiots. just dont support them monetarily and move on.

ayrt here
Only lewd cosplay that's legit is if it's canon, e.g. Super Sonico, Slave Leia, and so on. If there's solid source material then I have no argument because that's how the character was designed (note: doujins and other fanmade porn content is not legit source material). Putting on a yellow bikini and spiky ears and claiming you're "sexy pikachu" is not cosplay, it's bullshit.
The swimsuit modeling example is stupid, the purpose of modeling swimsuits/lingerie is to sell said swimsuits/lingerie, the target audience is women and the aim is to sell the illusion that if they buy it they'll be equally hot and desirable. The fact that dudes jerk off to those ads is a side product, and if that alone was enough, men wouldn't be paying costhots, they'd be buying swimsuit magazines.
So there's a critical difference here: swimsuit models are getting paid for selling swimsuits, costhots are getting paid for selling images of their bodies, which is sex work by definition.
The mammal example is so retarded I don't even know how to comment on it.
Cats are not dogs, "sexy cosplay" for money is not cosplay.

>>9932487
True but the tradition of sexually objectifying women in modern culture is a whole other bag of cats and is kinda OT for this thread.

That was a shitpost. If you’re at least average looking you should probably just start a twitch channel. Just have a constant stream schedule and have a couple of friends in your channel keeping the chat active. You can even get a small viewbot to boost your channel in the beginning or fake some drama/fail and have someone clip and post it on livestreamfails. You can even link a patreon and talk about it once in awhile on stream to get people to sub to it. You can stream yourself making the cosplay although I wouldn’t know how to make that interesting and have a donation goal for your next cosplay.

It's a shame things can't be as straightforward as they are in the Japanese cosplay community. I had the interesting experience of attending Cosholic last summer - an entire convention for lewd cosplayers - and it was really enlightening seeing this whole scene where cosplayers just make lewd photo sets and sell them straight out. No dancing around with Patreon, no bullshit, just straightforward commerce. It was also interesting seeing how my friends from the Japanese cosplay community viewed it, none of them are ero-cosplayers but they all saw the whole ero-cosplay thing as pretty normal and didn't really give anybody shit over it. They were shocked at how awkward I was about being there.

Is anyone else having a problem with Patreon processing payments? My control panel's reporting that 19 out of 112 patrons had declined payments, dropping my $/week down by over a hundred bucks.

Several of those patrons are panicking and messaging me that there's money in their accounts but it's declining anyways.

Honestly, if people like to pay for sexy cosplay content, there's nothing wrong with that.
I'm in school full time and work a little part time, I can't afford to make super elaborate cosplays.
I use my Patreon to support some smaller cosplay, and the sexy stuff sells more, so that's just what I try to do.
There's nothing wrong with that, and it doesn't take away from cosplayers who do different kinds of cosplays.

It varies. Sure some girls post lewds and what not but as long as they actually cosplay characters too it's a good way to make money. What I can't stand are girls that ONLY "cosplay" as sexy/slutty versions of characters. Wearing a bikini and a wig is not cosplay. I'll give a pass to some characters that are designed slutty/sexy, but I still know why they chose that character. Similar to jacked guys that always choose half naked characters to cosplay. I find the attention grabbing to be off putting personally.

Not that guy, but getting nudes to fap to is 100% preferable to actual sex with random chicks.

Fapping is convenient, easy, you do it to your own tastes and preferences and there's no one else there to judge you for it. I've turned down sex many times with my past two girlfriends to fap instead, and I'm pretty sure most non-virgin guys have as well. Although most chicks not knowing what they actually want out of sex or how to even get themselves off on their own is a huge factor, too.

Of course not. He’ll, I haven’t even messaged any of them, not even once. I like supporting them because I like their costumes and because I appreciate the sexy photoshoots too, of course. I find them cute and I like cute shit. I don’t expect to fuck any of them. Honestly, all women who complain about those who have a patreon page just seem so salty and sad to me. They are not hurting you in any way, but you decide to get angry about it anyway, while they are just doing their own thing earning a fee extra bucks that don’t even come from your pockets. If you don’t like sexy cosplay, don’t do it and carry on. People waste money on stupid shit daily, this is no different.

Unpopular opinion but I think that throwing on a wig and a bikini can also be considered (ero) cosplay IF you manage to still look recognizable as the character. Which, honestly, is kind of impressive considering you're not wearing the outfit.

>Why would I play sports when I could watch other people play sports? Moving is requires effort.

I'm not one of those weirdos who thinks the texture or heat of pussy/mouth/ass makes it indescribably better than your hand but the actual feeling of having someone with you and making that primal connection is worth the effort, mane. Maybe you just don't like the people you fuck that much?
However I can sympathize with you because there was a period of time where I had a girlfriend who lived mere blocks away and I'd rather jack off at home then go over there despite the fact she gave incredible head. Regardless I think you're making a mistake based on sloth. I don't mean to ridicule you (the poster calling you autistic was someone else) but I think maybe I've been in your shoes and I don't want you to feel the regrets I've had neglecting my sex life before. It's your choice but there may be a point in your life where you're older and you wish you reaped the opportunities you had.

What is wrong with his left knee?

I don't have any issues with it.
I don't plan on having a Patreon for myself nor trying to make money from cosplaying.
I don't plan to give money to others because they cosplay. I'm not a richfag and can barely pay for my own costumes.

I mean, I still have sex probably twice a month or so. Less than average for people in relationships, but it's not like I avoid it or anything. Heck, we only go out and do stuff together a couple times a month, we're both busy and schedules never seem to match up.
