A few questions I feel I need verifying... Anonymous 07/20/14(Sun)13:52 UTC+1 No.7697255 Report

Ladies and (I assume a very small amount of practicing) gentlemen.
I have a quandry with your board that I'd like some help with.
Basically I stumbled on this board from the mobile site by accident but a few of your threads have intrigued me to no end.
I've frequented a number of boards across 4chan over the years and it must be said that much like any normal forum regarding, well, anything. Each and every board across this (and other) chan(s) has a heirarchy, a group of individuals that find it absolutely necessary to belittle anyone that isn't in their cheer squad.

I'm a little bit at a loss as to why on earth there is such a clear and obvious one here though. When you visit somewhere like /b/, you're immediately confronted with
>>beta/cringe thread
On /v/ it's the
>>fedora neckbeard thread
But with boards like that it's pretty obvious why, it's adolescent boys clambering to the top of a pointless sicial ladder in order to make themselves feel better about their lack of sex appeal.

The problem I have here is two fold.
Firstly, all of the bitching here seems very catty and personal (it's no surprise really as I'd guess it's mainly females or sissy boys that play here), but instead of the usual 4chan
>>hurrdurr doing it wrong faggot
You guys are actually malicious, calling into account a variety of flawes, both easily remedied (poor quality clothing) or physical (the attractiveness of someone.

Secondly, although I don't understand why you dress up you guys like it and all share a common passion for it, the fact that you guys do something which is seen as "alternative" points toward the fact that very few of you here were the homecoming queen, and although cons have become the in thing since tBBT aired most "normal people" still think they're fucking weird. You should evaluate the way you bitch about eachother because lets face it, it's happened to all of you and you all know how it feels to be vindicated.
Anyway, you guys aren't /b/, you're obviously not 14 year old desperate repressed homo trolls so don't act like it you bunch of morons.

welcome to girl 4chan, you might want to take a walk by /y/ to complete your tour.

4chan is just a nasty place no matter where you go, there are just some small variations in assholishness depending on the board you're on.

The level of visible autism here is incredible. Usually when I call out someone for being autistic, I'm just being a bitch. But you sound legitimately autistic.

since this is a meta thread already

I come from /pol/ namely this post

boards.4chan.org/pol/thread/32677444#32682295

is it really true that this place is dull? I never really bothered to ever come here but are girls really boring when left to their own devices?

Lolita and cosplay are visual hobbies. Good construction and appearance are imperative to be good at it. When it comes to criticizing other people for being bad at these specific hobbies, it's no wonder those are the two major points. To claim this surprises you just means you have absolutely no knowledge of it and still thought your opinion was important for some reason?

my definition of fun in these modern 4chan times is pretty much delightfully being surprised by bane posting.

Not sure I feel one way or another about "drama". I dont even remember personalities or people here. But you people do? Its actually slow enough here for you guys to form "hierarchies"?

/cgl/ does not stray too far from the female cliche, we talk about clothes and beauty/hair. Everyone gets bored while watching a conversation about something that doesn't interest them, so I don't see what people not interest in these would expect from us.

as someone has already stated

The anonymity thing doesn't work when it's a slow board devoted to a community that expects you to post pictures of yourself.
On faster boards mob mentality kicks in and threads get bogged down by ideals rather than personality. On slower boards it's all ego.

oh lord, another "i'm posting about posts because i'm so observant and want to understand what i am observing without being an active participant" it's not our job to involve you or educate you or explain to you or deal with your presence as if we should be honored that you drifted over here just to enlighten us that you think our behavior is unacceptable. no one is interested.

so If I started cosplaying as the CIA guy from the dark knight I would get to be remembered? Would it be painful?

I don't, it's an observation on people in general. I find it funny that the supposed better sex is just as, if not more likely, to fall victim to the same traps as the worse.
I guess 4chan is the greatest existing platform of conveying actual human perception and ego. Two things that are clearly disgusting

If you dress up in a fairy outfit, you will become a fairy and will be able to grant one wish. You can use your wish to cure your autism. Happy wishing!

Only lolcows are remembered. Bad cosplays are daily routine over here, and it's difficult to remember everyone unless the offense is repeated over and over and over again.

OK but you made an entire thread about it which clearly means you think you're important, which you aren't. We don't give a fuck about your observations. Get the fuck out of here

Basically /cgl/ bitches like how normal people irl bitches. We laugh at people because they have ugly faces, are fat and dresses badly, have a bad personality towards others in public or call them sluts because they are extremely promiscuous. This is the same things as normal people will bitch about.

A autistic fedora neckbeard however thinks a girl is ugly because she doesn't have suckable toes, will call her a bitch because she rejected an autistic loser and say stuff like "she is showing her armpit, what a slut".

The fact that you think we act weird as opposed to other fedora boards kinda says something about yourself.

I don't even understand what you're saying.
You're entirely missing the point though.
It really doesn't matter if you become a fucking internet celebrity or fall into non existence. The issue is that your community, which is made of literary students, blockbuster video employees,office dogsbodies and single girls should pull it the fuck together

Ok, so here's what you do:
>get one shitty costume done
>make a horrid photoshoot, spam it over DA, Coscom, Tumblr and here
>set facebook page for your cosplay
>sell prints of it
>open kickstarter for your next costume
>when people criticize you, reply to them publicly in your facebook page, whining about why things can't be done the way anon suggested, or get angry and treat it as body-shaming/racism/slut-shaming or whatever best suits the situation.
Then you'll be remembered for at least two weeks (winning our hearts since Pixyteri has been difficult, sorry!)
