Hey boys and girls, it's drunk con story time!
Tell us your stories of con parties and what you did when that sexually questionable girl who didn't know the meaning of 'personal space' tried to force tequila in you.
>be at the big state con saturday morning
>meet up with a local group of con-goers I met online
>saw them once before at a small con and they were the greatest group of people I ever met
>hang out all day, have a blast
>around 5pm the obvious but unaccredited leader of our group asked us to come over to his car for a little "science experiment"
>he opens up his trunk to reveal several bottles of vodka and some gigantic bags of skittles
>only ever had one sip of hard alcohol before, Jack Daniels, you can guess what I thought of its flavor
inb4 >vodka >hard alcohol
>so we spent like 20 minutes organizing mountains of skittles into these bottles
>"Hey i've never had any straight vodka before, could I try some?"
>I take a sip
>it burns a little, I don't hate it though
>come off the bottle with an obvious grimace as I didn't know what I was expecting
>"Hehe, that's okay, not everyone can handle vodka straight."
>he hands me another bottle
>"Here, try this one"
>melon flavored vodka
>take a sip
>oh shit son, that's some fine ass melon drank
>start chugging to prove my masculinity (???)
>"Yeah! You go anon!" says the leader's girlfriend who was also there
>stop drinking and strike heroic pose because that's just how I roll
>hand it to another guy who was with us
>he does the same
>bottle half empty now
>"Alright, these bottles have to sit for a while so the vodka can suck up the skittles, let's all head back to the con" says leader

How do you people have the courage to wear lolita, cosplay, or whatever crazy J-fashion out?
I have a wardrobe full of lolita dresses, but I've never stepped foot out of the house in one of them. I was going to make today the day where I actually leave my house in lolita (as I'm seeing my one and only rl friend) and ignore all of the ridicule I'll get (I live in a nasty ghetto neighborhood).
I have severe social anxiety and "not caring" is very hard for me.
Advice? How do you guys do it? Don't you feel like freaks dressed like that in public? I'd feel better if I was in a group, like at a meet up, but I just don't have the courage to go out.
Picture is the dress I'm planning on wearing.
