Cosplay damage horror stories

No.10810342 View ViewReplyOriginalReport
Have you ever broken a prop or cosplay at the con? Or witnessed such an incident? Bonus points if it couldn't be fixed easily.

My first cosplay was Cloud. The elevator doors closed on my 5-foot buster sword, snapping it in two. Never found the top half.

I saw a Five Nights with Freddy cosplayer fall down the stairs. His fursuit head and feet exploded.

The best was when a girl dressed like the coconut head chick from Kill La Kill was trying to clip something to her waistband and somehow ripped the whole skirt in half. My then-gf had to run and tell her that her cheeks were showing, and gay her a shopping bag to cover her thong with.

An essay on anime conventions (UK perspective)

No.10803826 View ViewReplyOriginalReport
I’m aware that being 4 chan there is a good chance people won’t take this seriously. Nevertheless I’ve written a serious essay on anime conventions. (mostly from a UK perspective) What they used to be like, how I think they’ve lost some of their magic, and how I think we could go about preserving that magic for future generations of con-goers. Also I discuss the impact that conventions have on western fandom, how this compares to japanese fandom and what conventions can do to grow and nurture the anime fandom community.

I don’t expect a lot of serious comments but I would like some and promise to read them carefully. I’d like to put these ideas out there and see how the community receives them (even if they are polarising).

I’m particularly interested in:
*Comments about the technical feasibility of proposals.
*Opinions on the importance of grassroots influence in conventions / wider fandom.
*Whether you personally would want to come to the kinds of events I’m describing.
*Do you remember the ‘good old days’ of UK cons? Do you agree they were actually ‘magical?’
