Pictured: Girls that weren't at GenCon this year
The picture above is from 2014. You would have had real trouble finding anything that hot this year. I won't say there weren't a few good looking girls. I distinctly remember seeing two of them. But that was about it.
I took a few pictures of the kind of girls that were in costume this year and then decided I didn't want blind my readers.
Bottomline: The Body Positive Movement has ruined Cosplay. I have never seen so many gigantic asses shrink-wrapped in spandex in all my life. There was a booth there, Beauty and the Geek, they sold bootie shorts with a superhero theme and proudly advertised that they had sizes from Sml to 5Xl. Don't get me wrong, there have always been a few clueless cows, who show up every year looking for some attention from the eternally thirsty. But 2018 was the first year that they were not only in the majority but the vast majority.
By day three the hot chicks had vanished entirely.
The GenCon dealer room is usually one of the big reasons to go but this year the dealers apparently heard that the horrible Trump economy had put money in peoples pockets and that they desperately needed help getting that stuff removed. Everything was DisneyWorld prices.
There was a pall over the whole thing this year. The energy, which in truth is the real reason I go to GenCon, was gone.
It doesn't take a genius to figure out why that was.
Meet Gencon's Guest of Honor for 2018.
Yep they went full SJW this year and made that thing the GOH, due to her contributions in gaming. Despite the fact that she literally couldn't tell the difference between Doom and Fallout 4. She's that much of a gamer.
When SJWs are in charge, everyone pretty much walks on eggshells. They were feeling free enough to bring a bit of ANTIFA with them. Jeremy Hambly, was sucker punched at bar in the wee hours of Thursday by some sad piece of shit card game designer who has developed a game that appears to actually be worse than Depression Quest. So props for that asshole.
GenCon is owned by Wizards of the Coast and this is the year they have decided their SJW convergence is complete. They have begun sneering at and giving the finger to their own customers.
Next year, it's going to be DragonCon for me.
