/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.

Thoughts on this?

While the ahegao hoodies are cringy, they aren’t actually unsafe, so I personally feel like the con is overreaching. If the purpose is to create a family-friendly environment, then what about suggestive cosplays? What about cosplays from R18 media? What about the R18 dakis in the artist alleys which are 3 post-its from being full NSFW?

Also, they've likely targeted that in a public announcement for those people who aren't going to otherwise read the rules. The general public pretty much. Cosplayers, artists, and sellers will, of course, read the rules to know what is and isn't allowed, but those who are just coming as a bystander may not feel the need to read the rules since they're just throwing on a t-shirt and calling it a day.
>>
>>10293475
I don't agree with it anymore then you, and it's a shitty situation, yes. It likely would be easier just to ban people under 18 since, any convention I've went to locally, only had a small number of underage participants, but... I guess they want to remain all-ages. I feel as those who grew up watching and reading anime & manga get older we'll likely see a lot more of this type of censorship since a lot of people are having children now, and... maybe it's more profitable to have those people bring their children versus banning children & losing attendees because said people can't find a babysitter they trust or afford it.
>>
>>10293483
i think the BEST answer to this new public that want censor is to have cons +18, +16 and free of age, make it like they do in movies, +16 we have those bikini cosplays + suggestive clothes and +18 is no censor
>>
>>10293486
Exactly. That's what I'm confused about... a lot of popular manga and anime is in that OT (16+) or explicit (18+) category... and how exactly are they gonna' account for that in an all-ages convention?
>>
>>10293486

>>10293486
An example being my Chobits books. They say OT (16+) even though there's nudity and explicitly sexual themes... like the peep show venue chapter. Will that be banned? (Of course, these were printed prior to the new child protection act, and such material may very well be rated 18+ now.)

i have hoarded many photos of jfashionistas that i think have artistic value beyond the usual coord shot or selfie. i would like to share some. they will include all kinds of Japanese alternative fashion, and subjects may be any age or gender; and they will NOT be images from publications such as KERA, Fruits, etc.; so i hope there will be good inspiration for a variety of seagulls.

this is a continuation of a prior thread, which reached the image cap: >>10284337

in that thread, i posted photos demonstrating some trends i have noticed in Japanese alternative fashion photography. these included portraits taken in themed studios (>>10284338), colorful backgrounds that match or complement the coord (>>10284374), portraits that demonstrate the personality of the subject (>>10284386), manipulated surreal portraits (>>10284428), scenic portraits (>>10284458), urban portraits (>>10285277), "mundane environment or situation" portraits (>>10285851), and some unusual props (>>10287128) and more studio portraits to close the thread by reaching the image limit (>>10292305).


for this thread i plan to share portraits that demonstrate other trends.

Maybe unpopular opinion but if the bag doesn’t match the coord, just don’t have it in your outfit shot. People are becoming autist about matching bags; I’d rather have something comfortable and functional

Does their backorder form work for Usakumyas?

I assumed not because the bows, etc. are different colors each release a lot of the time but if there was a way to backorder one of the more plain ones like the white Usakumya with white bow combo I would love that since my wardrobe is either all old school or stuff with white
>>
>>10293154
>>10293392

They probably won't announce on twitter... going off previous MTOs that never make an appearance on twitter after their initial opening.

Other girls might post about getting theirs though, so keeping an eye on the twitter tags might be a viable option, especially for Honey Cake.
>>
>>10293455

The backorder form basically tells the online store to check and see if the item is in stock in one of the other branches, if it exists then they'll happily sell it to you. If it's completely sold out throughout the entire nation, then there just isn't one they can sell to you. So pretty much, worth a shot, but sometimes it's just all gone.

The other thing to note is that the form is not a stock check, you're committing to buy the item if they can find it, so don't send it willy nilly and then change your mind later.

I saw this brand pop up on Twitter. https://flowerknows.taobao.com/
I'm not sure if I'd buy makeup from Taobao still but man the packaging is cute. Their holiday collection has teddy bears all over it.

Flowerknows is the makeup brand of Hana and Baozi (cosplayers). So I guess slightly less sketchy?

If animal testing is something you care about I wouldn't buy even if the maker is legit, any makeup that gets sold in china (even high end brands) must be animal tested which is the reason I avoid it.

Mostly because Facebook wouldn’t allow allow them to have the period in the name. But anything they post or speak they say dotBless. I assume they took the idea from the series .hack.

I hope this time they actually release something. They’re becoming boring.

Dude, it's cosplay, not an olympic event. Most cosplayers are average, not even cute. Being fit helps with everything, as does being attractive. But if you're fugly and 19 have fun and cosplay. anyway. There's always someone out there to judge you regardless.

No it's a portmanteau of Costume and Play and your only duty as a participant is to have fun.

I still can't get over how this girl defended wearing that blouse because "else it leaves and odd gap at the neck area looking bad" after someone commented about it looking bulky at the neck. Either she wears it wrongly that it looks that bad without, or she never saw tradition Asian clothes. Probably both.

only good answer in this thread. I wouldn't recommend "low effort" and overly simple cosplays composed of normie clothes for beginners because that's a slippery slope into shitty closet cosplays. if you wanna pull of super simple cosplays you need to pay a lot of attention to cleanness, decent makeup and hair.

post comfy j-fashion or cosplay pics, articles/essays, stories, or cosplay/j-fash related life happenings
