View Full Version : Alternative places to crossplay

Hello ,
I'm fairly new to this forum, but, thought I'd come down from the rafters...one can only lurk for so long.
Anyhow, after reading some of these posts, I thought I'd add a few suggestions to the content.
One of the best alternatives to cons are goth/industrial clubs. Granted, they're usually 18 and up....however, the dress code is pretty much anything goes and nobody has a problem. It can be a little unnerving the first time you show up in a skirt and heels, but, once inside.....it's incredible ::::insert big smiley face here::::

one example is

Sorry, if I'm pert with messages, this should improve as I become more at ease with the crew here. Let me know if this has been of any help.....Alielle (my alterego)

Actually, the same night that Anime Boston started, the club Manray had an anime themed night. I would like to go to a goth club but it's 21+ and I'm only going to be 20 next week. I think my boyfriend wouldn't quite understand me going to dance around next to people in bondage/fetish gear. lol. He's totally the other end of the spectrum from me. =sigh= Oh well. ^_^

If you can get some of your other friends to crossplay with you that will get rid of the anxiety. I've noticed that when people are with a group of their own peers they'll do things together they would never think of doing by themselves for better or worse. Must be a psychological thing *shrug shoulders* for example high school football players dressing up as cheerleaders during halloween.

Oh, I totally agree with the group of friends thing... When I joinedt the navy, the uniform was quite difficult to wear in public, but when six or seven of us got together; people were wanting autographs!!!! Now only if I could convince my friends to get all cosplayed up and go to the mall.... ANOTHER PLUS is that people will be a lot less afraid of a group of people instead of one person who REALLY stands out *photo ops!*

BTW, the navy uniform really attracted lots of cuties, wonder what cartoon and game characters will bring!

I think it would depend on your area... to describe the climate of my area... well... churches outnumber 7-11's 5 to 1, and Pat Robertson (of 700 Club/Christian Coalition fame) is about a mile from where I am now.
So... crossdressing=beat down
