You know what kind of irritates me?  Otaku cliques.  :P  Everyone has their group of buddies, but I've definitely seen before where people will form a really tight knit group and sort of shun off new people.  It just seems to remind me of middle school/high school too much.  And lets be honest, most of us were probably social outcasts or didn't fit in.  So, it disheartens me to see it happening in this environment again.  Hey, we all love anime enough to visit (and sometimes do so while cosplaying) a convention dedicated solely to that topic.  Lets all be friends. D: Yayyy.  :D

(OK, obviously use your discretion.. If someone hasn't showered in 30 days and won't stop talking about their favorite hentai movies.. I don't blame you for not wanting to hang out xD but I think you all get what I'm saying.)

*thinks to self* why would this person be crying...or is it...? *light bulb* Oh my goodness! I'm so sorry, you must be a girl! (jkjk) Don't be offended I do that to everyone, even people younger than myself.

On another note, I've found another pet peeve I have at cons:
random glompers... *sigh*

Op I'm sorry, I guess I assumed you were a man because of your user pic, forgive me?
Well its not even the fact of being confined it's the outfit, what if its ripped or damaged? I would be very sad indeed. Or worse, what if they hurt someone with a "surprise glomp"

;-; Thank you, Reppy. I kinda felt like that all con. When I wasn't at a panel, I felt incredibly depressed because everyone was having fun with friends but me. Not to mention the friends I did have at the con didn't have a cell phone/had no minutes/had limited minutes and so it was impossible to track them down. Thankfully, this time I'm going with friends this time, and as an added bonus, they all have phones. No more being lonely for me~!

^ I can't stand those tight little circles, It's like they have a 'back off' shield around them o___o I can understand how much it sucks trying to look for friends who don't have a cell phone, but its easier to find them if you know they'll be down in the gaming room or something XD

@snowshoe
I agree you'll make a great etna, and I think we can agree that that naruto cosplayer was prolly out of their mind

Actually, I have an opinion on the other side.

I go to cons to hang out with my friends, and it's always nice to make new ones. However, if I'm sitting with my friends in a corner at the end of the day, I'm not going to be pleased with people who come over and randomly attempt to push their way into the conversation. Once, a creepy guy came and sat down right by us, tried to change the conversation, and then tried to get one of us to lend him our cell phone.
Not cool.

I've got to agree with Katie here, they creep me out.
I can appreciate it if you come up and introduce yourself all friendly like, and ask if you can join in the conversation, but I can't deal with it if people just show up and start talking to me >>

heehee i actually did that to 2 dudes (one of them is my friend now XD and he's gonna hang again with me this year) but they were glad that i did that cuz they were all "lost" and "new" at con *i was too lolol* but yea. i love talking to random ppl and freaking them out >:{DDDD
but mostly i just say "hi i love your costume! ^_^<3 how long did it take u? what material did u use? did u have to use different methods for the sewing? etc" i mean i love art so you know ._. but after i can tell they feel uncomfy i say "well nice talking with you! hope you guys have fun! ^_^ and if you guys want to talk again u can just find me on the forums!" yuuupz. =w=

Well, I certainly understand the different perspective, especially coming from a girl.  XD  As a male, I don't have weird guys following me around... as far as I know..

Anyways, what I kind of meant is a little more beyond that.  I'm not saying everyone should be outgoing and "HEY WHAT'S UP DOODS" to every person they come across.  I guess I'm more talking about the groups that might kind of look down on other people because they're not part of the "cool group" or something. xD

I have to second the random people trying to weasel/force their way into a conversation and whatnot. Now don't get me wrong, meeting new people at cons is really awesome, but please also have common decency and manners. It also bothers me when people feel the need to follow us around and pretend like we're OMG BFFS. Believe it or not we just MET 5 MINUTES AGO. Now if people are polite and actually ASK to chill with us, now that's a whole different thing. ;)

And this isn't exactly a peeve as much as it is an annoyance, but when we're surrounded by cameras and we're posing, don't ask if you can take a photo. YOU CAN. We're posing for a reason, and we don't have the time to say yes because that would make for some weird facial expressions in the photos. XD I hope that makes sense. I understand people trying to be polite, but in the middle of a group like that just go for it. WE ARE HERE FOR YOUR ENTERTAINMENT. :P

Two faced people. The people who are nice to you in person then bash you behind your back. I must admit that I did this at one point but I am working on changing it. I find it really funny that people are mad at me for doing it yet they do it themselves.

wow ._. ppl are weird... i love meeting new ppl and the ONLY way i do it is by randomly saying hi! and telling ppl how great their costumes look. after that i just leave them be! i can tell when ppl don't want me there *obviously not a dumb@ss* but yea. i mean i just HATE it when ppl are like <_< and they give u the stare of "you're uncool get away from here. i don't want to talk to you cuz you obviously look like a loser at cosplaying" yea...
i hate those ppl. and those are the ppl i annoy >:{3 just cuz i hate them! <3~

Oh Con pet peeves.
They always exist.

Mine are pretty simple.

Respect:
Seriously, you're there to have fun. Respect people, respect costumes, and hell, have some respect for yourself. Do you really want to be remembered as the screaming, weaboo, glomping kid, or the person who was taking awesome pictures?


Costumes:
People work hard on them. Don't go ruining them by ripping parts off! This has happened to a friend of mine on several costumes. One being cutting off a chunk of her Sasuke wig. Yes, I'm being serious. Not to mention, if someone is openbound and painted, then it might not be a good idea to hug them. This happened to me. A lot, when I was doing Taboo Sho as Sak this year. It was ridiculous. I was lucky I -didn-t rip my binding.

Elevators:
Every year, At Nan desu kan......The Elevators always got broken. Always. Ten flights of stairs to get to your room? Kthxno.

XD yeah. Besides the obvious confunk, I got nothing else.
K-con 2015-

Ahh, creepy guys... I hate them so much ._.

At Fanime, I was cosplaying ffx-2 Rikku, and these two creepy greasy guys who kept talking to me. My friend I was at the con with was changing, and I had to stay in the same place to wait for her. I tried my best to be polite, but I got a bit sharp with them and spent the whole time thinking "aahhhh someone please save me ;-;"

It went on like that the whole day. Some guy even kissed me without permission ;-; I bitchslapped him and was all "what the hell?!"
...but it was so worth it ahaha the nice people who weren't creepy were great, and i was invited to participate in a live stream to japan C: they said my cosplay was really good <3

Not to turn this into a pseudo feminism debate or whatever, but it sometimes can be annoying seeing a girl in a skin-showing costume going "BAW CREEPERS ARE STARING AT ME"

Well isn't it expected that if you're showing your boobs/waist/legs/etc that you'd get attention? If you don't like it, there are tons and tons of more modest costumes that are just as pretty and flattering that won't get you negative attention.
Of course, it still isn't fair that a girl can get negative attention from such things, but that's life, I guess.

Attention is fine, but when people act on it, it gets to me. Like I said before, there was a lot of forced physical contact which made me really uncomfortable.

tl;dr Looking is fine, but NO TOUCHY D:<

Just kidding.

That's super creepy.

And perverted.

And definitely smack worthy!  (And quite possibly a swift kick to the nuts, too!)

I honestly do not understand the logic behind this.

"Hey, this will work out well!"

Like, has any girl ever been like, "Well excuse me stranger, I really like the way you grabbed me in a private area without my permission.  In public, no less!  I like a man that knows what he wants!  So, my place or yours?  Oops, I'll let you decide since my opinions don't really matter much!"

Exactly. Some people are SO DUMB. And then they had the gall to ask for a picture. Hmm, do I want to pose for a picture for the creepy guy who just grabbed my boob? NO WAY, IDIOT >.>
