• Cosplay
• Lolita
• J-fashion
• Conventions & gatherings
• Sewing & prop-making
• Craftsmanship tools/materials & tutorials
• LARPing
• Discussing accessories such as wigs/circle lenses/prosthetics/makeup (These must be within the context of the board-related topics listed above; weight loss threads should be kept in /fit/, beauty and fashion generals should be kept in /fa/)

Our board rules are simple:

• Thread content must be related to one of the categories covered in the list above. Off-topic threads and replies will be deleted.
• Singling people out maliciously is not tolerated and will result in a ban. 4chan is not your personal army.

Might as well throw nitpicks in here since they tend to make up a good portion of the threads any way.

I don’t like them either but they’re only embarrassing themselves. Any guy that thinks all or most women are like this because of a handful of egirl thots is the brain dead one.

Idk who Oxychan is but when it comes to incels nothing can end well with them so you might as well tell them just how disgusting they are. Those wastes of oxygen go on killing sprees because women they’ve never spoken to might potentially reject the advances they’ve never made.
What the fuck is this shit?
she didn't even call this lolita and it's obviously not, fuck off

In 2013-14 when I started lurking here, there were AoT threads. Can we have an old fashioned “dedicated to one series” thread like that again? I re-read the manga and want to cosplay a scout again. Unfortunately I don’t have all my old inspo pics anymore so I hope someone else has some still.
>are you planning anything? Maybe a not-yet-animated character?
>How did you keep the thigh straps up when you’ve got a strong hip-to-knee ratio?
>pleather or canvas jackets?
>did you fall for the boot cover meme?
>do you like cosplaying from something like AoT where you get to feel like a “unit” with the massive amount of other uniformed characters running around the con? Team Skull is another example of this.

I’ll start with a small dump but it’s pretty shitty since I don’t have my old folder anymore.

Yeah, sewing loops on, clear or not, would definitely work, too. If I remember correctly, that’s what my intentions were, but I just happened upon that particular pants style because I didn’t already own white pants and let myself do less work.

I knew a couple people who just used leggings that had the straps printed on them although I don’t know where they got them or if those still exist.

Nice find on the boots! I always just dealt with my boots being slightly inaccurate because I’m a guy and not a lot of inexpensive women’s boots like that come in sizes big enough or with big enough calves. My feet aren’t even that big, they’re just big enough that ordering the largest women’s size and hoping they fit is futile more often than it actually works out. I have knee-height police style motorcycle boots I wear for anything that needs tall boots, so I just used those.

Good luck with everything! I cosplayed it initially toward the beginning of its popularity (the otakon in 2013 was my first time? I think that was the year, anyway). I remember having a lot of fun, so hopefully you have the same experience!
My niggas Pixis and Nile w-weren’t actually s-shown [spoiler]ing, t-they’re gonna be o-o-okay!

Shit show, shit manga, shit fanbase.

Thanks for pointing me in the right direction. I was just planning on soft kit that would be a good fit for the helmet that I made, although I intend to finish the helmet with the brass fittings and mail work when I am able to. Ill use the resources you suggested and come back if I need any help.
new shield soon.

also, drachenfest soon

I couldn't imagine an all female con being even remotely better.
People wearing hentai shirts

People who come up to you and try to initiate a conversation with you but don't have the social skills to pull it off and just stammer at you about shit you don't care about until you make an excuse and leave

Parents at conventions expecting special treatment for their kid (regardless of age)

People fucking with legit service animals because they're so used to seeing pets in public places being used as "emotional support" animals that they just assume it's another pet (big peeve of mine because one of my friends needs a legit service animal and people kept running over to hug/pet the animal, distracting her from keeping my friend safe)

Conchairs who use the convention as a platform to promote themselves, turning it into a vanity project rather than something meant to provide a good weekend of solid entertainment for attendees
It’s a plague at this point

Same anon, but I forgot to say, people need to not wear that stuff that’s shaped wrong, not that people need to not say it doesn’t look good. I guess I mean I just wish there were more people giving solid advice like “no, that bodice is too short for your body” instead of “loose weight” cuz otherwise newbies will become entrenched itas that just are a comm embarrassment
What was the skirt if you don't mind me asking? $25 sounds like a great deal, it's too bad it didn't sell.
You should still be normal weight then more items will fit and some will fit better because of closer to normal proportions. It’s impossible to pattern cut for ‘generic larger person because fatties all gain their weight in different ways/places. Hence why mumus that fall freely from the shoulders are eventually a thing when you get too fat. There’s no hope of tailoring for all the various heinously elephantine protuberances that lurk beneath.
>mfw I started watching an item to wait for a price drop only to see it had a comment on it from five years ago
True, but most fatties have large breasts, and keeping the same flat-ish front shape that skinny girls have doesn’t make sense either. But I guess I’m not taking about mega obese ham planets, I’m talking like the regular lolita “plus size” girls who are like a US size 10 that still have a semblance of a normal shape but often look terrible in brand

Trying to come up with cosplay ideas for my first time and I'm running low for upcoming con. Can anyone make cosplay recommendations for my body type. 6ft, slim, black hair, anything bearded, or something with a mask preferred.

Darker than black seems irrelevant now, Izaya would require me to shave and gendo ikari makes me feel like a pedo.
Tuxedo mask?

Just like the title says, ladies, post male cosplayers you find attractive.

/cgl/ Idol Spreadsheet (Recently updated, under new management!) - https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1WtgRe5cjKIR0BYGhw9N8ahxChLqEFLbZIRbAazooh-o/edit?usp=sharing

-What makes an idol group vs dance cover groups?
-Appealing to a wider audience
-Most attractive idol groups
-Ambiflora performance was a shitshow, people getting fed up with her hold on the OIC(?)

Starter topic: re Ambiflora's performance. Does anyone know if this performance a last-minute decision or if they actually practice for it? It seemed like they had very little practice time beforehand, which is odd considering the article Julily herself posted a few months ago. If your group is asked to perform/planning a live debut, how soon is too short notice? It seems like the failure of a lot of groups, both love live/idol anime cover groups and original idols, is in the lack of behind the scenes planning, or a single person taking over everything and not effectively communicating with their group.

pic semi-related. Stellure always seemed like their dancing lacked refinement and, like Ambiflora, was just Mimi ft. the girls.

Makes a lot of sense, actually. Regardless, she’s pretty damn talented. Her voice is strong and nice to listen to and the song isn’t overly simple and childish like a lot of other original net idol songs. I’ve always known Melancholiaaah was pretty good but she genuinely surprised me with this one. Props to her.
Oh, really? That's pretty cool.
My hearing sucks tho so I'm afraid of not being able to enjoy her music to the full extent oof ;; but I'm definitely going to check out more of her things, cause this made a wonderful first impression for me.
Goddamn, her vocals sound really good. What a talent.

I actually saw her talk about this in a video once. I was really curious about it myself because it seems so elitist. The group just agreed that since everyone knows where to go for Darling videos, and that they already had everything uploaded on there from the start (they didn’t want to reupload that many videos) that the group just decided to leave them there or some such thing like that. Its confusing but in some ways i get it. Not how I would do it though.

Is cosplay inherently sexual?

Is it less a hobby in 2019 and more a form of sexual expression?

Do cosplayers tend to have more permissive attitudes towards sex and casual sex in particular?
40 replies and 5 images omitted. Click here to view.
Wearing costumes ain’t sexual as long as you don’t make it sexual.
What if someone else makes it sexual?
It's a hobby until you get the particular cosplayers who turn any cosplay into lewd and sexual. If in doubt then check patreon.
They faggots

Starting this thread as the only other dream dress thread is for Euro only.

I'm looking for Innocent World's Side Lace-up JSK in black, size M-L. It's kind of old and was a lucky pack item, and the lolibrary page isn't even there anymore... if anyone has it in this size and colorway i'm interested

Yeah, but mostly because everything I want is super trendy right now. I also think as the average lolita gets older and money becomes less of an issue, people tend to hoard more instead of selling things they don't use. Hence why a lot of DDs are barely seen and/or owned by people who don't fit them but can't part with them.
rolling my eyes real hard, just for you anonny.
>Pretty big

Decided to google her, and she isn't big at all. I was expecting a whale ffs, she's only slightly chunky/chubs, like she's at the end of a health bmi.
She posts old stuff constantly, going as far as posting old coords to cof. She’s def bigger than most of her insta pics. I met her in Seattle and didn’t recognize her from online. She’s big.
Which ultimately means you are all right. She clearly gained weight, but she only tried it on so that doesn’t matter. Not that a fully shirred op is going to be stretched much from her weight, she just became chubby.

I'm sure they will be at Paradiso in Kansas City next year. They were treated really well by Chaotic Harmony, but obviously probably didn't sell anything.
Aha, good to know and worth the ask then, thank you for the info. In the latest release, they are offering it a la carte as a selection on the form so maybe they also still do alterations such as yours, design allowing. I know on some it's not possible, it would require them to re-draft the pattern, or re-design a set pleating pattern which I don't think they would do. But with some, grading up or adding width to the sides on the bodice and/or adding and re-measuring the skirt gathers could work. Good point anon.
I am not sure they would sell enough at Paradiso either, or if there’s enough interest in them as a brand. I would really like to see Paradiso open a wishlist vote (among actual ticket buyers, not just randos commenting) for ’favorite worn brands, what's actually in your closet’ and then rank them. I think it would be AP, Meta and Baby/AatP honestly, then various indy with a bit of the other Japanese ones having lower votes. I think there's too much general noise of people commenting all kinds of stuff about Paradiso, people who don’t even GO to it.

But I guess Paradiso would be JetJ’s best bet for anything inland of the coasts that was not in Texas, probably. Looking at the Tulsa tea party attendees, I think Tulsa would do better with AP... and asking them also to bring lots of accessories.

If I were a lolita designer, I would have the temptation to stick to Paris, London, New York, LA, trusting that media coverage will drive online sales for people who can't attend in these larger cities. At least the fashion show photos stand a chance of not being bad. Photos like >>10221110 and >>10220967 do nothing much good for any brand. That posing, dear lord.

Anyone going to Anime Oklahoma [https://www.animeoklahomaconvention.com/] in September? I'm thinking of only getting a day pass because it seems that this is the first time it's happening, but the metro location is so much more convenient.
No. This thread is firming up my resolve to concentrate on fewer but better cons from here out, I’m done with these kinds of rinky-dink cons supposedly ‘for fans by fans’ when they are more and more ending up to just be money sinks and offering sub-par experiences when organizers don’t get their shit together. Fewer but better, that’s a better plan for me. And that ain’t happening in Oklahoma.

lel, this reminds me of that photo someone took of a voltron jacket they found in a charity shop

anyway people throw things away all the time. they'll do it to even untrendy things you make. to any art. we grow out of things all the time and sometimes even rediscover that joy later.
For those that sell on Etsy/once sold on Etsy, how much did you make your first year on the platform?
Give it to a friend or the thrift store usually. Lots of thrift stores have sections dedicated to buttons, keychains, and stuff like that. Most art prints probably end up in the trash though after they eventually get damaged somehow.
Twitchcon aa emails are out
>so many salty popular artists
>the dude who harassed that girl and called her a retard on twitch for her art skill level has gotten in.
>streamers getting in and selling stupid merch that isn’t art by them or art related.
>artists getting in that said they haven’t drawn in years.
I sold around 600 11x17 prints at AX. People are running out wall space though. I hear a lot of people discussing what they need to take down while theyre choosing their prints from my catalogue.

So your prints have to be better than your neighbors AND what your customers already have on their walls to sell.

Korean skin care and k-beauty is becoming a lot more accessible here in the west these days huh? I remember back in 2015 it was damn near impossible to get stuff like sheet masks and air cushions in brick and mortar stores in America but it's everywhere now.
Anyways, I'm starting isotretinoin (accutane) soon. My natural skin type is oily and I know it's gonna dry out. Has anyone tried the Hado Labo Gokujyun lotion and liked it? I've heard it's the most moisturizing lotion on the Japanese, if not all, markets. I remember a full a few years ago disappointed that it felt sticky and glue-like though

Like this hairstyle? I think it's less about how you cut the bangs and more how you part them, but I think Asians do cut their bangs differently than westerners do. I remember there was a great Google doc about it that I would see posted here sometimes, but I just looked for it and I can't find it!
My hair does that, but it’s because I went from side swept like #4 to bangs. You could probably achieve the look by using a hair straightener to define your part if your hair isn’t used to it.
