/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.

I'm not an artist, I use this thread for fun and exclusively post here on the rare occasion. we can get into the age old replica argument and derail a nice art thread, or you can get your panties out of a knot because of a gifted bag someone already purchased.

a few ultra idiotic shitheads care. the vast majority do not. a basic ass bat shaped bag is not "art" like a unique print is.

have you actually searched bat shaped bag on google, at least 5 different brands are making the exact same shaped bag. I think AP is stealling the shape from actual Bats anyway so...

Previously:
- DreamStage shut down early due to poor planning from con staff; the highly anticipated shuffle units didn't even perform
- Oldest members of Stellure are making one last song.
- OIC using poor wording to say they don't want cover/cosplay groups discussed within OIC.
- Idol News Network shut down due to internal conflict, being rebooted by one of the reporters.
- More infighting because we can't seem to get along here

I was also going to point out that the examples posted are from cosplay idols, but it kind of doesn't matter since the point is that it's not that hard to make a good low budget PV whether you sing and dress as your original idolsona or not.

Here're some PV that I love:

To be fair Deanna going AWOL for the better part of a year didn't help, but they were for good reasons and it would have been worse if she'd forced it.

She lost her job and her mental health went south so she was pretty much living on Final Fantasy 14 and keeping her identity secret from the friends she made on there.

She couldn't afford to go to cons without a job so DTP suffered, however she seems to be returning to cons now. I believe in one of her vlogs she said something about people being into K-pop more these days and it's not something she knows a lot about, but that's not really something that should put her off since DTP is so large and they should be able to cater to everyone easily.

lay the cloth over a paper and draw the shape to make a patttern, then rip the seams and use that pattern to cut the excess fabric. Of course take measures to be double sure. But its doable

Does anyone have advice on where I can find metal crosses like these? Reccomendations for sites, search terms etc

Also is there a good method for hiding the seams on a morph suit? I tested liquid latex on a spare I have but it didn't look so good. Maybe I just need to practise

where do you go to get cosplay commissions?

yeah I'm just gonna confront them of it doesn't get here by the end of the month. I really wanted that damn blouse though

Where are you located? $50 is on the high side for a blouse and could mean they used a flat rate box or they did ship it tracked.

Asia.
Its def not tracked
>>
>>10261217
It could be there’s no tracking available to your country. You can look up the prices at the end of the doc here. A single blouse should be less than 500g to ship.

There's a ton of threads about bad photoshops, photog drama and the like. But let's try to do something constructive. Let's discuss something simple, what do YOU think is a good cosplay photograph? If you're going to pay money for a photoshoot, what exactly are you looking for in the finished product? Also, post photos of what you consider as examples of good cosplay photos.

I am looking for a wide angle lens to use with my crop sensor camera and torn between Sigma 10-20mm and Tamron 10-24mm

Sigma:
>has constant aperture

Tamron:
>has image stabilization
>can zoom in more
>slightly cheaper

What do y'all think?
>>
>>10259055
I had a Sigma 10-20, the model without constant aperture though, and I didn't like it. In any case, the Sigma lenses are old as hell and from a time where Sigma wasn't very good.

The Tamron lens should be okay. I would also consider the Sigma 8-16 lens, which is a very interesting one.

If you want to do portraits with it, you will be hard pressed to find use for anything wider than 18mm - and honestly wide angle portraits should be taken sparingly, they're not that good usually - so I would suggest the Sigma 18-35 f/1.8 if your intention is to do cosplay photography with it.
>>
>>10259239
Thanks! I'm actually planning to do bunch of stuff with it. Using 10mm for travel-landscape-architecture, 15mm for cosplay action shots and 20mm for packed space portraits where my 50mm doesn't cut it. It'll be more like 16-32mm on my crop sensor camera so I'm not that worried.

Anyone manage to make a living doing cosplay photography? Doesn't seem to pay very well if its $30 per shoot.
