Uh.... I really don't think this is something to post about on this forum. I mean... its not a really a accomplishment. And to be honest, posting about it on here is really just as petty and childish as them posting you on 4chan.

Too be honest alot of people get trolled on that site. So theres no point about posting it on here cuz it just creates the desired reaction and more drama. Sorry to hear that its happened. But in future case dont bother because again it will create the desired effect. (that goes for anyone reading the post)

Like I said to people on FB about it.

Cosplayers get targeted all the time. Mainly because of they're size and shape or poor attempt to cosplay. Which is very pathetic in my taste.

I was reading the one about Hyper Japan. I saw a lot of people on here who got slandered. (NightmareWings and street-angel are 2 of the victims.) I personally think it's cruel and a new form of internet bulling.

But like street-angel said. Fighting back makes you a bigger target to rip on. Also shows them that they won by upsetting you. My advice is to accept that your on it and ignore and move it. I do admit being bashed about on the internet is very heartbreaking. I've been there. But not on 4chan.

At the end of the day you need to remember that these people are here to kill your fun. Don't let them do it. Remember that no matter what cruel things are said you are enjoying what you do and you have and know lots more people who respect and support you for what you do.

People, all sex, colours, height and weight are all beautiful in they're own special way. You choose to do cosplay. Don't let the immature and the harshness of 4chan put you off who are you and what you do.

This thread is so true, they do it for drama and to get a reaction of you.

Thats the hole point of a troll to get you upset, drama etc.

I got 4chaned for my lightning farron cosplay 3 times. Hurt like a bitch to see such disrespectful comments, but i let them have there little game, didn't reply and left it, they give up in the end.

I'm sorry but I do not see anything wrong with your Lightning cosplay. It's fantastic. This is coming from someone who disliked FFXIII.

Sorry to hear that these horrible hurt your feelings. This goes out to everyone who got hurt by 4chan too.

Wow thanks a lot. That was a nice surprising comment. But yeah 4chan is the shit hole of the internet (Excuse my french) I know once it got shut down from ATT because 4chan was sending death threats out to some people but then they had to unblock it as 'trolls' were getting too out of control basically trolling other websites so they give up on trying to get rid of it.

Looks like if you can't whack the insults you should try not looking at 4chan AT ALL or try and see them as a way to improve, other-wise you really just get hurt like me and a lot of others, at least we've all learn something from it though.

I always just thought it was like someone on their hands and knees looking at the ground like in anime. Google image search 'orz' and there are examples!

4chan is kinda funny!! I'm not into all the stuff like 'oh epic fail winrar' or whatever xD but aside from the ew stuff some of it is funny xD I only post when i try and help people when they say they wanna commit suicide and others have a go at me for it xP they can't be the most popular people in the world!


07 Oct 2010 - 02:1742409
I mostly visit /v/, and let's just say that 4chan is a forum where you need to accept that people are harsh. It is based around annonymosity, so people are used to acting like whatever they want cuz... who will tell them that they are "mean"?

I've been to /cgl/ a few times and considering that there are a few girls that get posted and torn apart verbally regularily... well that's why I never post a picture on 4chan of myself


07 Oct 2010 - 02:1942410
4chan is 4chan
avoid it at all costs or you're going to get trolled

By posting here you're adding fuel to the fire, there is no forum out of the reach of 4 Chan trolls

The best way to handle 4 Chan is to ignore it or it will invade your life and tear you a new one

All I was wondering if others had been in the same boat I didn't get upset I laughed at it all. And there was a reason for me to post street angel. They were taking the piss out if you and tif so I tried to help.


But I've had my fun now. It will blow over soon.

I agree. I've been grabbed once on there when I defended a friend. Not doing that again in a great hurry. I have, surprisingly, ended up on there another time in a positive thread (so very rare, I know XD). There was a thread on 'epic Trinity Blood cosplays' and I got posted twice. For the most part its a vile sesspool of vomit that needs to be nuked.

I agree with everyone here that it should be avoided at all costs and even worth not posting about it here.

I'm pretty sure the first rule of 4chan is "Don't talk about 4chan" but I feel I should comment.

/cgl/, in particular, is a very spiteful and fickle place. I've seen many beautiful, talented and kind cosplayers unfairly bashed on there. I've been posted on there several times and usually the comments are complimentary (and sometimes downright embarrassing) but I've also been bashed and called a "hambeast" and I've been told that my costumes are a "waste" on me.

I've seen the thread you were referring to and I believe the reason why you've been targeted is because you responded to the trolls- like classic primary school bullying, "if you ignore the bullies, they'll get bored and go away". But if you try to fight back and they see that they can get a rise out of you with a few hurtful words, then they'll continue targeting you. People will always say nasty things about other people- it's just the way of this world- but the best thing you can do for yourself is to just ignore them, and they will get bored and move on to someone else soon enough.

Of course, my best advice would just be to not visit 4chan ever again. "Ignorance is Bliss", and if you don't know what's being said by a few spiteful anonymous trolls, it can't hurt you or your friends.

Also, if you're reading this thread and this is your first time hearing about 4chan, I recommend that you do not visit it. I know this will probably be as hard as not clicking a link that says "DON'T CLICK THIS!!" but I have personally found that visiting the site is very emotionally draining as the negativity and needless anger thrown about that website can be very hurtful even if it's not directed at you or someone you know. So please, for your own sake, don't start browsing out of curiosity. It won't do you any good.

Okay, that's my wall of text done!


07 Oct 2010 - 12:2742433
Just to note, Rule 1 and 2 only apply to /b/ on raids. :3

I myself have been 4channed, someone's attempt at trolling became my most loved and most hilarious commment on my cosplay ever. However I won't mention it here.

Honestly, if you post on 4chan, you are pretty much asking to be trolled. There is no false politeness there, it is perhaps the final bastion of true freedom of speech - which comes with a very obvious price.

That said, I myself am a /cgl/ regular - I got out of the thread in question when the drama started, but up until then it wasn't so bad.

Though it may be hard to believe, amongst all of the drama and hate threads (which is easily 90% of the board nowadays), there are useful advice threads, reference material dumping threads, some great convention stories threads, and my favourite - the Progress threads. Hidden amongst the sea of anons and trolls, there's a few great and friendly cosplayers.

You know Denmark, who came to Fuyu 09 and Kita 2? I met her on /cgl/ and she's one of the most awesome people I've ever met. The same goes for my friend Harry. I've also made a handful of friends in the US through /cgl/.

Personally, I always use my tripcode (UnaSpi !yE6zp7JGyQ) - I assume it's pretty easy to express your most honest opinion of someone (bad or good) while anonymous, but I would rather be held accountable for what I say.

I've had my share of rude comments too - thighs too chunky, teeth too crooked, ugly, and just fat in general. So what? It's not true, so it can't hurt me.

You just need a tough skin - tougher than you think you already have. Don't pay attention to trolls, don't even respond.
If you're likely to get upset the moment somebody judges you, then just don't visit. Ever. You will not like it.


07 Oct 2010 - 13:3642437
Its not a nice place O_o i will admit I had a breif stint of curiosity on there a couple of years ago but its just a horrid place XD ive been on once, thankfully it was a "Good Hellsing Cosplayers" thread and it was for my alucard, if it was put on ironically I dont know XD but I dont want to go on, nor browse anymore

hurr durr 4chan is bad
I browse 4chan and 420chan erryday. Basically, if you're gonna partake in a hobby like this, you're gonna get posted eventually. Be aware that the posters are anonymous so the people posting you could even be close friends etc.
So pretty much if you're gonna draw attention to yourself, someone out there might get personally offended and start a vendetta. It's kinda how the internet works. Even by posting this thread you're drawing even more attention to yourself.
So just relax and forget about it, not everyone on 4chan is a total fuckmint

I thought that was you but wasn't sure is it was the same person. I think its good that you are posting with a name that way your not hiding behind some anon.

I agree if you do want to post there (not recommended) that you have to have some of the toughest skin possible. The first time I appeared I didn't and ended up quite upset. Since then it hasn't bothered me.

I do agree that occasionally some useful threads do pop up. Some very nice pics too. But for the most part its a waste of internet space.

*she types as she appears in a thread on Seph pauldrons XD XD (not me who posted)*
