This is me simply speculating but she probably isn't going because she wasn't invited as a paid "guest". More and more major cons keep dropping her as guests possibly due to her past controversies, like ditching from a con last-min to go to an aquarium across the street with her boytoy.
Their friendship was discussed in this thread around January, back in June of 2016 and in the Twitch thread on this subforum in Fall of 2015. I think they had a falling out sometime after that Heroes of Cosplay show. It wasn't because of that show, but I and several others here think they had a falling out because Jessica was basically using Monika for cosplay and not treating her fairly. Monika probably had enough of Jess leeching off of her for cosplay fame and taking the limelight when she put her blood, sweat and tears in her work and not getting virtually any credit for it. If you go way, way back during the time of Heroes of Cosplay and before that, on Wank Bank's FB and IG you'll see tons of pics of her and Monika together. On Wank Bank's IG you'll even see lots of pics that didn't involve cosplay stuff and was simply them hanging out casually as friends. They used to be very close. All we can really do is speculate but it's obvious something went down between them. They also stopped following each other on social media a while back.
LOL one of the founders actually said that? As someone mentioned earlier, the whole RT stuff was talked about earlier in the thread but I didn't know that in one of their podcasts they called her "the premier cosplayer in the world". Holy fuck that is cringey. It's really sad how so many people suck up to her or think she's this authentic geek/gamer when she's been exposed time and time again. It has got to do with the people she knows now and especially using her former fiancé Vann Childs, his ideas and his connections in the past. Another thing that's sad though is that Yaya Han is friends with Wank Bank, or has claimed several times in the past. They even did a YouTube video together after the directed/edited drama that happened between them on the Heroes of Cosplay show. I do notice that they'll have long periods where they don't seem to interact or collaborate with each other though. I'm hoping that one day Yaya Han does drop Wank Bank for good like Monika Lee did. And while we're on this subject of other internet celebrities kissing up to Wank Bank, could anyone tell me why the hell that Defranco guy was kissing her ass? I know he's like one of the biggest YouTubers, but what is this guy about, and what in the world did Wank Bank do that not only got him to notice, but to defend her too?
She has no artistic bone in her body is why. Yaya Han, Monika Lee, Riddle, etc virtually make all their own stuff, and actually give out credit when they haven't. My guess is that she's gonna try to live off the Patreon moolah (her patrons are so stupid to waste entertainment money on her when there's so many other artists out there who will actually invest it into their hobbies and actually deserve it) and sponsorships. And in the event that she starts becoming truly irrelevant in her cosplaying, my guess is that she's made so many connections in the internet entertainment industry that she doesn't need to be worried; she'll do "behind the scenes" stuff with cosplay and conventions and stuff like that.
Hard to say TBH. I want to jump to yes, seeing as she's trying to live this pseudo-luxurious lifestyle, but on the other hand we're obviously not seeing all the shit ton of money she's making going back to her craft. Not that that would be stupid, because that's the whole intent for Patreon--for a content creator to use their Patron's donations to go back into their content--but she seems to be exploiting it and her fans and putting the vast majority of money on the side, using some of it to fund her lifestyle, and possibly a smaller portion of it back into her cosplays. You can see this with her cheap eBay wigs and Party City costumes. So honestly, I kind of want to admit no, but the way she's going about this seems highly unethical.
TBH that Sith cosplay JNig did wasn't THAT bad. I'm a Star Wars fan myself. Maybe she should have focused on doing a Darth Talon cosplay--an actual Star Wars character with LOTS of sex appeal--but then again she would ruin that with her ratchet makeup and possibly being ill-equipped to do an alien-based cosplay. The only things that bother me are the boring and safe makeup, badly done hair/wig, and that god awful pose. Sheesh. She's really bad at posing. I agree with @CupcakeAnatomy--it seems like she was trying to aim for some emergence from stealth look but obviously flopped. She REALLY needs some professional help with posing. She looks so awkward and it looks forced. Certainly doesn't live up to "Queen of Cosplay" standards that's for sure!
Wait, wut? Really? I stopped posting here near the Fall of last year, just a bit after she had reached 1mill subs on YouTube, so excuse me for being a bit out of the loop. If that's actually true then Wank Bank moving out of mommy's and daddy's is LONG overdue. I remember it was posted here about her gloating on her personal FB page how she could retire at the time she made a post about it and was sitting on a lot of money. If I'm also not mistaken, her dad owns or used to own a pharmaceutical place and her mom is or was an actress doing minor roles, so she likely has a very good inheritance on top of all the money she's earned from cosplaying, YouTube and streaming. Anyway, I think it's sad her parents pretty much condone the stuff their daughter's bf does to her, but who can blame them? Wank Bank makes like $50k+ a month doing shit-tier cosplays and selling prints of her stiff modeling.
I wouldn't be surprised if this guy hired a few plastic surgeons to look like Pewdiepie. Is he still living with Wank Bank at her house with her parents? Really sad that her parents condone his behavior whoring their daughter out like that, but it makes you wonder if the parents also have snowflake qualities themselves. They have to be benefiting from this, right?
I'm following Cosplay Culture Magazine on Instagram and their latest issue has Wank Bank on the cover and in big, bold red letters as "COSPLAY QUEEN". LOL I wonder how much she paid off the editors for that.
Her Eeveelution boobplays are atrocious. All of them with the exception of Flareon look like some genie/Lebanese belly dancing costumes. With Flareon she just looks like a sexy Mrs. Claus. And people think she's this "Queen of Cosplay"...
Now she's hopping on the Rick and Morty hype train... that LEFT THE STATION A YEAR AGO. This girl is so lazy she's actually procrastinating on hopping on the hype trains of new fandoms.
If this doesn't show her unweaned silicone-thirsty neckbeards how much of a geek/gamer gurl she is I don't know what will. That "costume" is SO LAZY. She just looks like an alternative/scene girl who was too lazy to put on an outfit today. If she never said what she was cosplaying I would have never guessed "sexy Rick".
This guy really never bothered me up until a few months ago when you guys and some anons on lolcow started pic dropping a lot of his snowflake behavior. He should change is usernames to realfuckboy. He gives off a major douche with a capital bag vibe now. He's obviously using Wank Bank to climb up the cosplay social ladder.
Some of the Wank Bank redditors admitted of being a final tier patron and basically only getting a polaroid in return because everything else kept getting canceled or delayed. Wank Bank deserves to be featured on American Greed for the crap she pulls after getting donations.
She did recently show off some more presumed sponsored stuff from Blizzard, but you're right on that point. She probably stopped uploading videos because she was being exposed for her sponsored items masquerading as fan mail.
