/cgl/ is a board for the following:

• 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. The singling out rule applies to vendetta threads and replies being made to attack a specific person, as well as predatory behavior like doxing. Discussing an individual in general isn't against the rules as long as it's done within context of cosplay/lolita/j-fashion.

With the amount of ageplay accounts using the 'lolita' tag, and the 'egl' tag being mostly fancy rocks, I felt like it would be a good idea to compile some cute lolita etsy or storenvy accounts! Selfposting is fine, but please post other similar accounts as well, and try to keep relatively good quality. Here are some accounts ive found on etsy.

Actually anon, you're wrong. Himekaji doesn't look like old shit anymore because the fashion evolved. Plus that dress is from 2016
i'd say nu liz lisa is normie/larme influenced the way it's going. besides, 1 year off isn't that big a difference compared to when the pieces in >>10340175 came out
Why post anything else?
If you come over to my place and don't take your shoes off, then you're not invited. You want to keep your socks unwashed, and I want to keep my floor clean. Wash your socks, sweat makes them dirty too.
>People not washing their socks
That's not a thing, right? It's just common sense to wash them...

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

Original Music Playlist: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLfmgukQM2isUtJJZz1MY4Jn4zPcbl0wDU

-Meotashi announces plans to start new idol group when she moves to Florida
-TIF happens again with pretty good lineup, mild drama about groups that didn't get in holding their own hallway live
-A little bit of ARG discussion with Squeeze and Mondai society
-Lots and lots of drama about Cure and the idea of using a noose as a stage prop
-Anime Boston idol showcase applications open, no singing allowed

Starter topic: piggybacking off a question from the last thread, what are some tie-ins you'd like to see different groups try? Games, comics, puzzles, lifestyle videos, volunteer work, etc?

I'm no even Cure but go off.
Thats a damn good question. Its as if they haven’t made any more songs than the first one. They don't even post photos of their costumes.
Ignoring the fact that they recycle Stellure concepts, it’s even more disappointing that they don’t share any of their work. I’d like to actually see the shows they do since I can’t get to the conventions they attend.
Darling won a judges award for craftsmanship, and a spirit award for their concept. The awards had nothing to do with performance, and they deserved those just fine.
The MC at the show said that a staff member who passed away recently would have wanted them to win the second one.
Tired of seeing people get mad at groups for being successful after working harder than they have before.
I think everyone's point is that they could have given one of their awards to another group, idol or not.
I agree. Darling works hard and deserves their wins, BUT! Only one... I mean, the only thing that was different about their performance was the costumes. Thats it. They still did a Love Live song (a boring one at that) with a Love Live dance, wearing Love Live outfits. Exactly what every other idol group did in the show. Not sure why they had to win two awards when one if them could have gone to another idol group or another contestant in general.

You sound like a 14 year old playing call of duty
There are people who will judge you, but you can just dismiss them as tryhards. The majority of people won't care
no? she sounds like someone who's sane. esl anon insulted someone else for "poor english" when their english wasn't poor at all, they just didn't know the term because you know, esl. if anything esl anon who doesn't know what checked bags are sounds 14.
>don't go trying to tell people they're speaking broken English, retard.
"broken engrish" isn't an insult, furthermore it was a close IRL russian friend of mine who attempted to explain, but he himself went "idk how to explain, i suck at english. You know that". Geez, calm your titties.

Fantastic, thanks a lot for explaining in good detail, anon. Bless you and your patience.

Nigga. The person i said who had broken english is literally my best IRL friend, and he constantly says he "has really broken english", i wasn't refering to anyone on this board. Chill out, schizo. Ask before you assume.
I wear lolita around 100 times a year. How many dresses is too many?

the make-up suits her, and the shoes look more lolita than her other ones. i like this look, though the lighting is not good enough to see anything well.
that cardigan is looking like an actual sack of potatoes. she should try shapewear and a looser cardigan to get rid of the lumps. otherwise not bad.
I think this is the only plus sized lolita pic I've ever liked
I like it with socks. Without them it looks like the upper half of her body(including the skirt) dressed for winter/autumn and the lower half for spring/summer. The socks also balance out the blouse but nice coord either way.
This girl used to sell her nudes and sex videos on Patreon but she got banned from it. There’s a few of them floating around the internet.

I want to have lolita friends. I have some normie friends but I feel so awkward when I'm the only one dressed in j-fashion. I've tried to make contact with some lolitas that live in my city but no sucess so far. I just want to start a friendship without being seen as a creep or desperate.
Here's what to do

>search the internet for the nearest comm or two! asking here is fine
>you might need permission to join for safety reasons
>apply if needed, just be honest!
>include coord photos if possible, don't worry about it being good or not
>do an intro post if possible (facebook)
>if it comes up organically, see if you can be paired with a BSoLF or if someone would be able to help take you under your wing.
>don't be annoying or overbearing tho, within reason
>find out when the next public meetup you can attend is
>be brave and attend!
You women are such Hypocrites there are some of you who get off to watching men being in pain and mutilated and you're worried about some dude jacking off your stupid dress, get over yourself.

Last unanswered questions from the old thread
Any recommendations for a good moisturizer for combination (leaning dry) skin? I’ve been using the Clinique dramatically different lotion and while it’s hydrating enough when paired with a toner, I feel like it makes my skin look a bit dull. I was thinking of purchasing the Glow recipe banana moisturizer but the reviews seem mixed...
I really like Drunk Elephant’s Lala Retro Whipped Cream. Don’t get the protini, it made me break out with cystic acne when I’m not at all acne prone or have ever had that before.

oh lol shows what I know
I was at the masquerade and all the idol groups were good except the one that won two awards. Kinda pathetic desu
The younger crowd was looking for friends and community. Now the community is online and friends are already made, they're looking to hangout with the people they already know/talk to.
I dont meal prep persay, but I bring along snacks and drinks of my own (bottled water, pretzels, mealbars ect)
In all regards.

JK. I guess you answered my question already.
It's in the sense of popularity, size, photography, the hotel being in the same place as the con taken over by con attendees decorating their balconies, drama, partying, orgies, emotions and wilderness. I guess this is all just a characteristically American thing.

Ah, God bless America.

How do you feel about World Cosplay Summit preliminaries being hosted there?

>How's concrunch treating you?
Terrible. The fabric and some odds n ends I needed for the last bit of my costume couldn't be found here so I special ordered. They said they had a US based warehouse so I ordered and paid extra for the quickest shipping. Find out after they took my money, that they actually ship out of Wenzhou and now shipping is apparently shut down due to their proximity to Wuhan. Wtf...If I ever actually get my order, who knows how long it'll take. I'm just trying to get my cash back now, I'll wear my normal clothes to the con dammit. And I know this is seriously a 1st world problem given the condition of everyone that is sick but I still can't help feeling (guiltily) pissed off.
>If you're not gross
>still no mention of Tokyo Attack
God please, all I want to do is play Sound Voltex

Anybody from the New England area attending any conventions this year, big or small? I was curious if anybody on /cgl/ attended any of the small ones like Queen City Kamikaze or ConnetiCon. Anybody planning on Anime Boston this year?

I've been running a booth in the dealers hall for 7ish years now and it was easy to get in and easy to stay in.

What makes AA such a shit show???
nikki stopped running AA a few years ago. it used to be 1st come 1st served but the new women (kathy) did it as a lottery accidentally her 1st year, and now it's just a lottery. she is very very very slow. the sign ups closed end of november and we were supposedly going to hear back within 2-3 weeks after, but now here we are and one person on the forums may have heard something from someone else. people come from all over the country for this and need to book flights and things. they need to make a script in excel that just does it all for her, or something, because this is taking longer than a judged application.
Tfw no cute fem bf to cosplay and be gay with at AB
Anyone know how late the mall is open during AB? Last time I went I was staying at the Marriott and after I left one of the late night panels the sky bridge was locked connecting both parts of the mall.
I've been going to CTCon for I think 12 years (missed one year) and I have to say its gone down hill but still fun. I definitely think the dealers room has been lackluster the last couple years. I pretty much go to hangout with my friends in cosplay and thats been super fun. Last 2 years we've done a huge group cosplay which made it even more fun. So go for friends and not shopping

What is the Smallest Con/Event you attended?

For me it was a local comic event in San Diego (not the famous one). Held in a hotel where it barely occupied 1/4th of the first floor.

Artist alley only had 10-12 vendors. Exhibit hall had 10-13 merchants with stuff that looks straight from their attic

The amount of people in cosplay can be counted on one hand and it was small children

every fucking las vegas con here is small and can be done in an hour / a day. also a shit ton of babby's first cosplay like MHA but otherwise it's cool
I went to a really small convention in Denver maybe 7 years ago? Admission was like $10 bucks. The game "room" was like 2 TV's, and I'm sure they had an artist alley of like 5 booths. Not sure how many attendees there were, but I enjoyed my few hours there.
It was literally an artist alcove, you are very correct
poor dude was jammed in a corner
This. I think lvl up expo is suppose to be good, but dunno first time going this weekend so will report back if it's decent.

Thing that annoyed me about vegas cons is how fucking BULLSHIT the austimo staff is about shit.
>go to con in vegas, it's a complete shit show even for on the strip
>blow through the dealer hall in about 30 minutes and that was taking my time, AA I guess could be more but not a huge fan
>panels are all either canned or delayed due to issues one way or another
>decide to drink with friends for a bit to make the con not as shit
>come back with drink in hand from margaritaville or something to do cosplay pics outside and chill a bit with others
>exchange a few numbers for some meetups later try to go in to the con, actually meet a few cool girls to do photo ops with
>Paul Blart mall cop at the door who is on a power trip with his gopher status staring at us

Anime USA, a fairly nice con in a hotel in DC. Pretty relaxed, more of a drink and cosplay type and area it's at is nice. I strongly recommend bringing friends

Here's a non-casual one to tide you over.
Probably too late but what color wig/hair do you wear with this? As a redhead I cannot wear red without looking like rage and I like to see people with different hair colors style red.
uh literally any natural hair color

In particular I'm looking for Gothic and google is killing me with all the ita anime stuff
Any bit will be appreciated
