[Catalog] [Archive]

/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.

No, just look up basic tutorials online. If you’re at the level where you can’t even sew a button you’re really going to have to wait until you’re skilled enough to manage a cosplay. Sewing buttons is literally the easiest thing to do.

Yes. You want to end the show with a bang so people leave feeling good about what they attended and the last moments are usually what stick in a person's mind. That, and if there's something a lot of people look forward to seeing, you will put it last so the audience sits through the rest of the whole show.

I'll be staying in Tokyo for a month and I was wondering if it was possible to buy stuff directly from Mercari, Frill.jp, Y!JA or Amazon.jp with a foreign credit card. Has anyone tried?
>>
>>10241236
I think any credit card could work, and if not, you can always pay in the convenience store. I only wonder if having a foreign phone number could be a problem.

What's better? Going mid-late April or early-mid May? I know to avoid early April because of sakura tourists but beyond that I'm not sure and I don't want to go when it's too hot.
>>
>>10241236
pretty sure they don't accept foreign cards
>>
>>10241247
>>10241236
For Mercari you indeed need a Japanese phonenumber and Yahoo Auction actually refuses foreign creditcards. Fril is connected to Rakuten and on Rakuten foreign creditcards do work, but I haven’t tried ordering from Fril yet. (It is the only one I was able to create an account for.) Have to say often sellers want you to message them first, so I would say knowledge of Japanese is also a pre if you want to order from them.

I heard that using the word lolita in the title or tags makes videos unfindable on YT. Is that true and how do lolita YouTubers title/tag their videos to reach a greater lolita fashion audience? On IG I always tag #eglcommmunity along with the brands I’m wearing but I don’t think people watching YT really search brand names unless they’re looking for a specific unboxing video.

If it’s seriously been two years and you aren’t just exaggerating your price is not “reasonable.” If it’s been a few months sure, but not two whole fucking years. Take the hint and lower the price.

Can we have a thread to specifically discuss sewing and needlecraft in the context of j-fash and cosplay? Pattern making, machine discussion, garment construction, embroidery, etc. Other needlecrafts such as crochet, knitting, felting, etc are welcome too.
Question to get us started: Have any of you all bought older, heavier duty machines or invested in an industrial machine? It's been something I've been considering for a while because I like to sew some heavier materials and my machine struggles to keep up sometimes

OP here and I guess my wish for a heavier duty machine was granted because this cast iron beast was just given to me by the parents of a close friend who were planning on just donating it to Goodwill. It needs a new power supply and "go" mechanism since it was meant to be a knee control and I want to retrofit it to have a foot pedal but I'm very excited as all the mechanical parts are working
>>
>>10242682
Nice, take care of it and it'll last you a lifetime
>>
>>10242869
I'm really excited, I just ordered a power supply/foot pedal for a Kenmore machine that's the same voltage and looks like the same plug style so I'm praying it'll work (I know Kenmore and White machines share a lot of parts). I have no idea if the wiring inside the machine is okay since I believe this machine to be from the late 40s or early 50s but I have the means to repair it if I need to. Also this machine uses a very strange bobbin? It's large and not the typical standard size bobbin you see on modern machines, but thankfully people make reproductions. I'll keep you gulls updated

A size 12 would be about 87-67-92 and that's pretty standard, with a corset or shapewear you can make that 90-63/64-95, add padding and 95-63-100 is feasible without being too unrealistic. 115cm hips is pretty big, but if you want that cartoonish shape you can pad as needed.
