Holy butts, no way. D:

I remember we had something sort of like that for when I was in ren choir (about 7 years ago), but I've never seen them after that. Admittedly, I haven't looked that hard. I shall have to make a trip on the way home to see if I can find one!

Yessssssss!

^^ I use the Dryel brand myself. It doesn't eliminate the need to iron clothes but it comes out clean and smelling nice.

Warning, for really horrible stains/smells you should still take it to the professional dry cleaners. But it works great with after one day at con sweat.

I hate having to be away from home for half a week, every week. It's really slowing down cosplay progress.

Seeing as I'm a Homestuck myself and I've met some really nice Homestucks at cons, I don't judge the fandom as a whole or individual fans just based on their fandom, since I don't really care -what- someone is/isn't into, but I'm still kind of terrified of the fandom as a whole and actually going and interacting with them!

I am sick sick SICK TO DEATH of the invisible competitions this hobby has been taking on in the last few years. Everyone just wants to out-do each other and bash each other, and it makes me want to vomit.

Whether it's about accuracy vs creativity, colors vs fabrics, skin tones, or original variations, everyone has something negative to say! THIS HOBBY IS SUPPOSED TO BE FUN! SO STOP BEING A PRETENTIOUS JERK! YOU AINT THAT SPECIAL!

We're all losers and weirdo's together; act like it!

I recently got a message on Tumblr saying "Thanks for cosplaying anime at an anime con instead of being another Homestuck." I asked him if he meant that he was just worn out on seeing Homestuck or felt that anime is the only thing people should cosplay there. I haven't gotten a response.

From the cons I've been to, no, the Homestucks for the most part were really cool. I ended up tagging along with a group of Hetalia cosplayers (it was my best friend's first and only convention so far, so I was staying with her to make sure she was alright) and we actually got to get in on their photoshoot. Everyone is pretty cool here.

The only thing that annoys me with them is I remember seeing a couple of the cosplayers of it screaming their LARP across the convention. I know they're just the bad apples, though, as I know a lot of my friends cosplay from it and are totally fine.

In all honesty, the multitude of Homestuck-haters are becoming worse than the fandom's bad apples themselves. :/

I don't see the invisible competition. Perhaps because it's invisible.

Ah, yeah, most people probably already have their little cliques, and since I'm a bit late to the Homestuck party and am not in my teens anymore, it might be a bit harder to find some Homestucks that I can be con buddies with, but I'm sure I can find some nice ones. I'll just have to actually go for it and talk to some, haha. I might be going to the gathering at Fanime...but it'll be so crowded, that I'm a bit worried about going. [s]I should talk to some Jade cosplayers, because she's nice and likes to be friends with people (It's a joke, for those who take everything too seriously/aren't familiar with/haven't caught up in HS...though I'd just say that)[/s]


I've actually never run into extreme HS haters, but as I said, I tend to avoid the fandom. I'll never understand why people put so much effort into disliking something. Just ignore it, it's not harming you in any way. :/
I think I might also have had a slight advantage over, say, troll cosplayers, since my two HS cosplays so far haven't been obviously HS unless you know the characters enough to know what my original designs are meant to be. I was joking at SacCon that to Homestucks, I was Mom, but to non-Homestucks, I was Twiggy, after hearing the people in line in front of me comment that there weren't a lot of HS cosplayers around at that point.

I giggled. Oh, you.

I do see it, but it usually tends to stick with those who cause drama or become the center of drama. I know I can get bitchy about it at times because I can get bitchy about anything, but I've been trying a lot harder lately to keep myself in check.
I'd like to never be compared to others or worry about others making this hobby less fun for me by just blowing my costumes out of the water, and sometimes I do feel that they do, but I've been trying not to voice these opinions that much anymore since it only leads to trouble and being accused of being snarky for being scared about not being noticed or being lonely. I'm trying really hard not to become a 'competitor' rather than just a 'cosplayer'. If that makes any sense.

As a fellow Homestuck cosplayer I get annoyed by how some of the people of the community act and how HS haters/non HS cosplayers act. Some Homestuck cosplayers can just be down right immature, I know the Homestuck gets it's bad rep because of the storyline and bad art on it's own not to mention that the fandom is soooo large and is full of so many people that there just has to be chaos and people who go astray and are rude. However it still bothers me how immature some people can be when they are at cons. I truely don't want to stereotype because not only have most cosplayers who've cosplayed for years have had the phase of just being so excited that they are at con they just lose all ability to rationally do anything,but I'm close to the age group; but a lot of the rude cosplayers are young teens to mid and sometimes late teens. And they really add the "umph" to the Homestuck hate. Not only am I part of the Homestuck fandom but I've been part of the Hetalia fandom and a lot of hate pops up for fandoms that are just too big and have a younger audience. We all need to convince each other to act respectfully towards each other.

As for the other side of the spectrum, the Homestuck haters can be just as bad as they claim the Homestucks to be. I've heard people mutter rude things under their breath about the Homestucks. I've seen them exclude them from groups that don't cosplay Homestuck. I've witnessed them insulting the cosplayers for not having to put "effort" into their cosplays. I've heard of cases of people down right yelling at someone because of the fandom and telling them how stupid Homestuck is and how they'd never want to be part of the fandom because it is so stupid.

I don't think it's pointing fingers when I say that the antiHomestucks that give off hate is causing more of their local Homestucks to get into tight-knit groups that want to rebel and be obnoxious together and that the Homestucks who are just immature are causing other fandoms to hate them even more. All in all, the immature group of Homestucks and the Homestuck haters just feed off each others flames of hate to each other and it needs to stop.

As some one who attends between 15-25 Cons every year including the big 5, I can say while I don't have any general issue with Homestuck not my cup of tea, the issue I have seen and have been part of a few times is at cons when they do there group shoots they can be rather rude about what is going on.

Also I do know of a few incidents that Homestuck and other groups have got right nasty about locations I personally was involved with two last year but this is more to the fact as many have pointed out the age group of Homestuck is High School age.

Now that brings me to a pet peeve as a photographer who does may very large group shoots it really gets on my never when I'm doing a shoot and folks try to crowd in learn some respect folks if you come across a group shoot no matter what the size talk to the person running it before screaming out parings. I know for me I have no issue doing pairings just ask me don't start screaming it out over my shoulder.

What is Homestuck??? I've looked, but I can't find the actual comic anywhere. Totally out of the loop, here.
