Now Playing Tracks

So, I watched the first episode of Sailor Moon Crystal. And while I must say that I miss that Usagi’s Mannerisms from the original anime and the manga that are missing in this version, I have to admit that I still really love it.

The colors of the characters seem a bit muted and I’m not a big fan the fact that Mamoru is walking around wearing a tux, just like Tuxedo Mask’s (I’ve only seen the first episode and maybe it’s because he wears a mask and then was wearing sunglasses as Mamoru) but so much of the art is still stunning.

Sorry, but I need to vent/let everyone know what’s happening.

Shiraz Binyamin (AKA Akemi Yukimura or Aki Yuki Cosplay ) decided that she didn’t like me the minute she met me.

        About a year ago, Shiraz blamed her breakup on me and spread awful, disgusting rumors about me. (Having sex for video games, having group sex, ect.) I’m homeschooled, so a lot of people didn’t know anything about me other than those rumors. When I confronted Binyamin and asked her to stop, she blocked me.

       Months later, in December, I was confronted and sexually harassed by guys after she told them to, and I had to confront Shiraz Binyamin again. Shiraz fully admitted to spreading the horrendous rumors and using me as a scapegoat to her breakup.


Shiraz said she would set things right and get the truth out. Obviously, she didn’t.


       Now, about 2 weeks ago, I was at Gamestop in the mall with Matt, her ex, and we passed by Shiraz Binyamin. She immediately went in the opposite direction and left the store.
About an hour after that, and since then, I’ve been receiving tons of hate-mail on Tumblr. I don’t know how to get her to stop, but enough is enough. It’s been over a year since she’s been unfairly targeting me, ignoring it has obviously just made it worse. This isn’t even half of all the stuff I’ve been receiving this week. This is not okay.

Over the weekend I turned off anon, and Binyamin almost immediately started harrassing me on facebook with her separate cosplay profile.

This has gone WAY too far.

    I don’t think anyone deserves this treatment. Shiraz has admitted that I’ve done nothing wrong, and still continues to harass me, calling me a  plethora of racial slurs and sexually degrading names. She owns a gun, has threatened to kill people and is extremely racist. I REALLY want to get word out so that con-goers can know to avoid her. ESPECIALLY IN THE BALTIMORE/DC AREA. She’s done this before, and she’ll do it again. She could really hurt someone, and no one wants a tragedy to happen at a con. If you could kindly share my story, it would make me feel better after a year of this torture, and hopefully save other con-goers from it. PLEASE reblog this, and share it with any con-goers and cosplayers you know, especially those that attend any American cons.

    tldr; Avoid Shiraz Binyamin at all costs, she is relentless and unstable.

Holy crap, it’s still going on, but I’m so overwhelmed by the positivity and support I’m getting! Thank you everyone! I might not get her to stop anytime soon, but at least I feel better about starting cosplay and the situation in general.

Yeahhh as a person who used to date her I can vouch for pretty much everything here. So cray.

Signal boost.
This whole situation is extremely fucked up, and needs to stop.

To anyone wondering/asking about it, the links above are useless because she’s deleted her facebook accounts, but she still has her cosplay account and cospix account up.

You seem to really not like DashCon. Is it, like, the worst-of-the-worst con? (I really don't know, the only ones I properly know of are ones like SDCC and NYCC)

DashCon is a first-year fandom convention for Tumblr users. It is happening this weekend and turning into possibly the largest convention kerfuffle anyone has ever seen.

The list continues but so far it’s only the con’s second day and it is quite literally the most dramatic, hysterically cringe-worthy convention debacle I have ever seen unfold.

Adding some updates as of 7/12 at 7:35 PM EST:

  • The game room consists of some tables, one TV, and one gaming console. No, really, that’s it.
  • DashCon proves they have possibly the worst PR team ever when addressing the WTNV cancellation. Instead of clearly explaining the situation, they say they “don’t want to get into it,” and then offer compensation for those who bought advanced seating tickets for the Night Vale show. What’s the compensation? An extra hour playing in the ball pit (which is really just a slowly-deflating children’s pool with some balls in it). Oh, and if there’s room, you may get one of the first-come-first-serve spots at the Time Crash concert happening tonight. Huzzah!
  • Most panels are completely disorganized. The “Name That Anime” panel was even handing out hotel mints as prizes for correctly answering questions like “what’s the anime where they fight with clothes!!!”
  • This still needs verification, but supposedly there are minors being let into the 18+ panels (like “BDSM 101”), which DashCon could easily get sued for allowing. Not that they have the money for it.
  • It’s been pointed out that as a Marriott hotel, the Renaissance would have required them to submit their full reservation payment 5 days in advance of the event. Therefore it’s very, very likely that the “$17,000 fundraising” was a huge scam. Because DashCon would’ve had to pay that money 5 days before this weekend or the event wouldn’t even be happening in the first place.
  • Furthermore, someone attempted to debunk the letter that DashCon posted to prove that the hotel asked for money. Not all their points are valid (i.e. “RE:” is commonly used for “Regarding”, not just in response to previous communication, and idk but this dude doesn’t strike me as an expert on internal Marriott stationary), but frankly the letter looks sketchy if only because 17000% 99% of it is whited out. Is it real? Is it fake? We just don’t know.
  • There has been no confirmation that the money donated in cash and via PayPal last night ever made it to the hotel (if that was indeed where it was intended to go).
  • People are demanding full or at least partial refunds. Needs verification, but purportedly DashCon has a list at the con where you can sign your name and the amount you donated to be refunded later. Which sounds like a totally effective and not at all easily-abused system.
  • Attendees are either in denial saying this is the best con ever or they’re crying and having panic attacks. Welcome to Tumblr.

And as a bonus: DashCon originally ran an IndieGoGo campaign last year to raise $5,000 to start their convention. They raised $4,000. The campaign ended in April 2013 and rewards have still not been sent out (which consisted of tea bags, a couple business cards with your Tumblr URL on them, and if you donated $500+, some knick-knacks from Etsy).

The full story for those wondering what the hell is happening.

I hadnt heard of dashcon but wow this is bullshit
