Hey, my name is PipPip, and I’m here to tell you guys a little something about my sad!stuck cosplay experience at Anime California
So for Day 2 and 3 of this convention, I decided to be dead Tinkerbull and want to be human Cronus. These cosplays took some time and effort to put together and I use to love bringing these characters to life. At first I thought it was a cool concept and a unique cosplay— something that would get a few aww’s here and there. But I was wrong. Throughout the weekend, I was slapped around and abused by people who found my cosplays sad.
That was their only excuse for assaulting me. I made them sad. I told these people repeatedly to stop but my attempts at ceasing their actions were futile. At one point, I was even kicked in the back of my leg while I was having a conversation with several of my friends who were all witnesses to this person’s heinous act. I would have gone straight to the con ops about the situation to report the problem if it wasn’t the last day of the con and that person had already left the hotel.
Later that day, the person who had kicked me, messaged me saying “did i hurt your feelings today???????” Clearly they didn’t realize they had hurt a little more than JUST my feelings. They damaged me PHYSICALLY. They damaged me EMOTIONALLY. They even damaged my spirit to do sad’stuck cosplay EVER AGAIN for a convention.
PLEASE, LET THIS SERVE AS A REMINDER TO ALL CON GOERS: IF SOMEONE IS COSPLAYING A CHARACTER THAT MAKES YOU UPSET, THAT DOES NOT GIVE YOU THE RIGHT TO HIT/ INSULT/ SHAME THEM FOR IT. THAT IS INCREDIBLY RUDE, EXTREMELY UNACCEPTABLE, AND YOU WILL BE REPORTED IMMEDIATELY. IF YOU THINK THAT’S OK IN ANY WAY, YOU NEED TO GROW UP AND LEARN THAT NOT EVERYONE IS OUT TO PLEASE YOU.
I recently received word through Facebook that this is one of the big reasons why some of my friends are scared to cosplay at conventions in the first place. When I heard about this, it really got to me. This is all the more reason to report anybody who assaults/ insults cosplayers for their own immature reasoning. By doing this, it will create a safer environment for new cosplayers entering the community.
Be a responsible cosplayer/ con goer and please report those bad eggs so people that are much more deserving of attending, may join us happily without being afraid of what might happen to them. Thank you.
I don’t care how low she is on the popularity list.
To me, Feferi is a goddess.
Now you sit there.
You sit there, and you deal with it!
people who complain about “getting too many asks”
people who get straight A’s and every test they say “im so gonna fail”
People who say their art sucks when its clearly amazing
Having a student who just can’t pass his fucking driver’s test
Took my cat to the Vet
“A little bit of Monica in my life,
A little bit of Erica by my side,
A little bit of Rita is all I need,
A little bit of Tina is what I see,
A little bit of Sandra in the sun,
A little bit of Mary all night long,
A little bit of Jessica, here I am…”
If you don’t know this reference, you’re definitely too young for me.
You know you sang it in your head.
I sang it in my head holy shit

ALRIGHT LISTEN UP IMMA TELL YOU SOME SERIOUS GENDER MARKETING BULLSHIT THAT WENT DOWN TODAY
Today a woman came in to get her 13 year old son’s black iPhone fixed. This thing was totally fucking busted. She was already kind of being bitchy so I’m just trying to reassure her that everything will be fine and shuffle through the paper work so shes on her way. She leaves, I put her phone away till I have time to fix it.
Well come to find out that we were completely out of black screens until next week’s shipment. So I put on a white screen for now and reassure her that when we do get black screens in that I will call her and we’ll put the new screen on for free. Better to have a temporary mixed match phone then a broken one right?
This woman proceeds to flip her shit. “WE CAME HERE TO GET WHAT WE HAD FIXED!” I calmly explain to her that there is nothing I can do about the color for the time being. The son is totally fine with this and obviously embarrassed by his mother’s outburst. The woman snatches the phone, sneers at it, and then shoves it back into my hands and says “NOW IT LOOKS LIKE A GIRL’S PHONE! I AM NOT GIVING THIS TO MY SON!”
At this moment I turn to her and say. “I don’t undersand? How is it a girl’s phone now?”
"Well it was BLACK and now its WHITE!!" She gestured dramatically at the screen like I couldn’t fucking see it.
"How is white a feminine color?"
She huffs and explains that she refuses to take the phone until the color is changed. The 13 is now rapid fire “its fine its fine” cause he just wants his phone back. But she keeps refusing but I finally tell her again that we will change the phone for free when we get black screens and that shes not allowed to keep it here.
The point of the matter is that this woman almost refused to even take back the phone BECAUSE OF ITS COLOR. Mind you its not even anything like pink or purple. ITS. WHITE.
A SUBURBAN WHITE WOMAN TURNED RED IN THE FACE WITH ANGER BEAUSE SHE THOUGHT WHITE WAS TOO GIRLY FOR HER SON.
the fuck is up with moms policing their sons’ masculinity
How can people think that gay couples shouldn’t be allowed children. I don’t know about you , but this is the happiest family I’ve ever seen.
