I’ve witnessed a lot of crap over the past few months. Time and time again there is something new to be offended about and I agree. Some deplorable stuff has happened but I realised something the other day and it’s probably not a good thing to say. But I’m tired of giving a shit. And then of course Frank Turner has a song just about that.
Because I’m young enough to be all pissed off But I’m old enough to be jaded I’m at the age where I want things to change But with age my hopes have faded I’m young and bored of being young and bored If I was old I could say I’ve seen it all before In short; I’m tired of giving a shit
It’s eleven years ago and I’m on the second floor of the Krazyhouse in Liverpool. Holy crap, this song made me flashback hard. I was in university and having the time of life. Don’t anyone tell you that high school is the best years of your life, it’s BS. I hated high school. University was fantastic though.
OK dinguses, here’s something that’s gonna make your life and the lives of everyone who sees you at the con so much better.
This is called a Men’s Dance Belt.
It’s for male ballet dancers to wear under their tights. Its purpose?
TO MAKE SURE NOBODY SEES THEIR BULGE.
when I’m at a con, nothing kills a potential good superhero costume more than seeing the cosplayer’s friendly neighborhood spider-cock through the costume.
I made a comment on this when someone shared this on FB, but I had to add here too.
As a dude, this is extremely vital if you plan on wearing spandex. Now I think it’s slightly misleading when it says it gets rid of the bulge. It doesn’t. You will still technically have a bulge. What you won’t have is people being able to tell exact details of what you look like underneath the spandex. No one wants to know that much detail about you on first meeting. This thing basically just smooths you out but you are still going to be obviously defined as male.
I will state though, that these things are the bane of my existence. They are not comfortable. I think the longest I’ve lasted is around six hours, at which point the thong part just hurts way too much and the waistband really cuts into your sides. I’ve been left with marks from these things for a day afterwards.
I will still wear it though in costume. I swear to God, you have no excuse. Wear the damn thing. Suck up the pain. It makes your costume look that much better.

I'm from Liverpool but currently live with my wife in Pennsylvania, USA. I recently gained a PhD in Astrophysics at Liverpool John Moores University where I studied gamma-ray bursts.
I thought it would be funny to write reviews about french fries, but instead I seem to prefer making posts about Giant Bomb.
A little more about myself.
I'm generally a geek who is into video games and comics. I also love music and mostly listen to it, but I do have a guitar and like to play along with the music I love rather than creating anything original.
I used to bowl and hope to pick it up again soon, and I also follow football, LFC being my favourite team.
