/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.

Many cons have been implementing new rules that bar "replica firearms".

Rules not verbatim for all events but usually similar to as follows:

>"Realistic replica firearms (including reproduction, fake or toy guns that can be confused for functional firearms"

>"Prop weapons will be allowed providing they are composed of cardboard, foam, wood or other light materials. Prop firearms are allowed only if they cannot be mistaken for real weapons."

My wife had her leg amputated and thought it would be a lot of fun to dress as Cherry from Planet Terror, M-16 leg and all. One of our friends brought up the ban on realistic looking weapons and wondered if it would be a problem.

I figured I would turn to you all to see your thoughts on the matter.

Only in one instance have I seen this costume performed by a real amputee and that was years ago as a promotion for the film itself, well before the restrictions. Any other time, it's been someone with their leg folded back and a makeshift gun prosthetic.

We think it would be absolutley to do this, but dont want the headache of making a functional leg and not being able to wear it for an event. It's also the centerpiece of the costume, so doing cherry with peg leg, crutches, etc. would leave much to be desired.

Have you considered having the gun in two parts that clasp over a simple rod prosthetic? That way it can be plastic or another light material to comply with the rule and you can easily take it apart for props check. I don't think it can be mistaken for a real weapon if it's literally her leg
Why does it matter if they look realistic anyway? As long as they're not functional, there really shouldn't be any issue.
That was essentially the idea I had. The best ones I saw online while doing a search were made with one particular all metal air soft gun so they could be weight bearing. But the gun itself is rather costly and I think I could make something with far less unsprung weight that would be easier to walk with out of aluminum and a plastic gun.

I believe the issue stemmed from a con where people outside were mistaken as having real guns, had the police called on them and the inevitable shitshow that ensued.

The real idiocy is The fact it happened outside the venue, where cons still have no control. They ban them indoors, but you'll still see people posing for photos outside in their full getup.

Congrats on finding a new massive drain on your wallet. I added one of pic related to one of my gunpla orders for the hell of it, now I've got 5 of them hanging around my desk and another couple on the way.

How tall is she?
Also sage for offtopic I guess.
bottom shelf i guess, seagrams, it was the cheapest and i'ts wonderful
i can't drive
I've tarred roofs for money before and cleared brush off land and laid patios and painted cabinets, not like i never done labor before, but problem i can't drive and got a bad redord so can't get hired nothing needs driving, sorry drunk. so it's very bad. letter carrier sounds comfy and good for you, id' like it except the driving, but you don't have much salary growth you know. tha'ts the thing you carry 10 years you still get paid the same as the first other than inflation adjustments, it would get lousy
i'm going to learn programming and get a better fucking job, that combined with accounting and being sober will get me damned good money and I am going to get a fantastic salary and i'll make software that automates the shit out of this shit and put all those fucking cunts out of jobs and into the poorhouse, and i'll look down and laugh at them.
if i get 2 hours less sleep and/or 4chan a day i can study for 2 hours a day and i'll show them. i want to sit on a laptop in chiang mai and develop automation systems so these cunts will lose their jobs and i'll make great lots of money off it, i'll have to buy a team of mexicans armed with rakes just to rake in all this money, and I won't give those lousy cunts any alms from their cardboard box houses on skid row.
i'm real smart when i'm not drunk and i'm certainly autistic enough to be a great programmer
anon love yourself and buy yrself a bottle of hendricks or at least whatever trader joe's cheapest gin is. it's a real lolita gin
i drank burnettes in college so seagrams is already a large step up
that shit was vile

It's cause they have to use an actual shipping company vs. just throwing it in the mail. Canada Post basically told foreign post offices to put a halt on all mail bound for Canada so they could resolve the strike and the massive pile up of packages.
Aw! Thanks for the explanation!


sorry for the delay!
Don't know if it's right for /cgl/, but I bought this
So part of my 11/11 order got lost. The seller offered to resend it and I said ok if they'd send me a new tracking number.
It's been another week since then and they said they could give me the tracking number next week-
should I refund now?

Are the kawaii sneakers on Ebay decent quality? I really like them, I've just been hesitant bc idk if they will fall apart after a few wears
They’re not like super chunky. They’re standard converse
I’ve also got these from YRU and if you’re wanting something chunky but not platformed these are another good option
PJ pants!!

I've been wearing oldschool for years (before everyone started bitching about the oldschool bandwagon) and it's still pretty easy to find. True, finding one specific dress in a specific colorway might take considerable time and effort. But if you're just trying to build an oldschool wardrobe, there's tons of options out there to choose from while you wait for your oldschool dream dresses. Try harder anon.
I'm gonna wear a dress tomorrow but the torchon lace on it is all scrunched up and misshapen. How do I get it back to the right shape? I'd wash the dress and stretch the lace out as it's drying but it's already clean and it wouldn't dry in time either way.
They do regularly actually, but it sells just as quick as moitie nowadays, hence in minutes.

That's true, but you have to admit getting popular or known old dresses got much harder in the past 3 years, especially when they're velveteen. Not because there isn't enough, but there's an ever growing demand thanks to the trend. Hell, someone bid 27k on an old AP velveteen Op+Cape set last month and I got the same one in a different color yesterday for 1800 yen, just because I was quick. Trends are one hell of a drug.
I literally just did this today. Do you have a steam iron? Stretch the lace out gently with your fingers and then steam/press it into the right shape.
nayrt but my cherry marguerite op in pink has a purple tag and that's a very cutesy print?

It's nearing that time of year. Talk about wardrobe posts or post your own wardrobe collages!

Small wardrobe posts are fine! I enjoy looking at them, esp if it looks like it's well-curated and the person looks like they have a direction they're going in. It's also good for yourself for documentation purposes!
Do it, it's fun to see progress as it grows and I'd rather see small posts then no posts at all. This is what keeps the community active!
>Are you making a wardrobe post this year?
Probably not
>Whose wardrobes do you want to see?
Everyone's, I really enjoy wardrobes that have 2010-2012 AP dresses
>Whose did you like from last year, and why?
I don't remember lol
>Do you have any special photo setups planned?
>How much did your wardrobe grow?
Too fucking much. Moving to Japan has been a blessing and a curse.
>Do you think there will be less posts again this year?
Probably about the same.
>Where will you post?
If I do decide to do a wardrobe post, it'll probably be on Instagram
DO IT. I did my first couple of years and it’s been so sweet looking back. Now my wardrobe is big enough I don’t want to bother AND is split between two countries.
What platform should we use? I don't feel like going back to LJ. Also is it worth it if my wardrobe has 10 pieces?

How is it possible that that limp, paper thin, too small, abomination of a dress is the best part of her look?
That was a wild ride
I don't like that bonnet but I like how ballsy it was to go to a turbo normie event in a full coord

Usually promlitas wear eBay milanope trash with random other shit
dollar store poop-chan
The bonnet is so badly worn and the hairstyling and makeup looks nonexistent, but it could have been much worse.

This girl had better have some sort of disability because that is the only way I can justify her bringing her body pillow to prom/school. Even then most people with disabilities have more sense than that or at least have caregivers who care enough about them to explain why they shouldn’t do that.
It looks like they are at a pre prom event, I don’t think anyone wore those shorts to the actual prom.

Belief what you want, it's just stuff that happened years ago.

I deleted many of my cosplay pics several year ago and have gone through several moves.

This is me from Katsucon in 2012
Too many layers is unconfortable in the heat. Winter and meets are another story
As long as you don't wear it to lolita events and shit it's fine, some specific prints might get lost or look deflated but a lot of dresses and skirts look fine without it. Less lolita sure, but for daily wear a cute dress is a cute dress.
All of those are you
That sounds lovely anon. I would totally join you for your tea parties.

Ofc not, that's not what it's for. Brands make umbrellas, I have one from BTSSB and one from meta

Don’t see one in the catalogue!

A thread for asking for help tweaking a coordinate or for when you’re not sure what’s not working in an idea you had; maybe you need some pointers on meshing pieces together. This is a thread for when you already have the basic idea of what you’re doing, for simple questions please see the stupid questions thread (old one is full, I’m sure someone will make a new one sometime).

Layering it on top of a blouse+skirt or JSK is the obvious thing to do with it but I'd try layering it on top of an OP as well, depending on the OPs you have that is. It could look good paired with a printed main piece but solids are a safer bet.
I'm being very vague because I don't know what you have in your wardrobe that might work with it, but they're some ideas nonetheless.

The really obvious answer is to swap out the skirt for another lavender skirt, or lavender x black skirt if you can find one. I'd stick to solids if you're worried about themes clashing with the bat collar. Then you'd be able to wear the same coords as before, maybe with some changes to accommodate the lack of black in the skirt.

You could also try using it like a bustier over an OP or maybe even wear it over a shapeless trapeze dress, but you'd definitely want to keep an eye on the neckline so it doesn't look weird with the gilet's bat collar.

Lastly, you could totally slip it into an ouji/boystyle coord -- black or matching lavender pants (if you can find them), white shirt. Keep the colour theme lavender x black x white and add lavender accessories to your hat or bag to keep the colours balanced throughout.
Thank you both! I really like the over-an-op idea, i just have to find legwear to balance it nicely. The good thing is my wardrobe is all the same color combo and solids except for this one print, so I think I can come up with something. Thanks gulls!

I can't take pictures right now unfortunately, will if needed, but hopefully here is better than stupid questions for this.

Those of you who own IW bordeaux pieces that are that super dark almost purple bordeaux, what do you coord it with? Just got in a JSK that looked normal bordeaux in the stock images, dark in the seller pictures but I wondered if it was lighting, and lo and behold it's that purple toned bordeaux. Also have a cardigan the same color but the JSK is more of the issue. What color do you guys wear with it since not many items are going to be this tone? I could see myself putting browns with it but otherwise I'm drawing a blank since I feel like navy accents would look off and mixing reds just makes you look unbalanced most of the time. I don't really own any purple/lavender unfortunately.
Hi! Sorry about the terrible pic quality, it's night here.

Someone gifted me this jumper skirt and I wanted to try my hand at a punk coord, but I'm having trouble with this little bastard.

What kind and color of blouse/socks/stockings/shoes would look better with this dress?

Or should I simply not use it for a punk coord?

All varieties of Black, Caribbean, African, Afro-Latina, Blasian hair...whatever your background, if your hair is textured and/or curly this thread is for you.

let's share inspo, tips, and ask/answer questions.

Seeing as braids have been posted are dreads ok? I asked if anyone had dreads in lolita before & got laughed out of it. You can add flowers, pearls, charms, lace wraps, accents and even coordinate the colours to match your outfit etc, its also very full in volume for us thinner haired gals....pic related is the set my maker just did for me a colourmatch to my hair, love me some long haired woolies, so comfy to wear.
If they’re good quality and match your coord/style I don’t see the issue. When they are cheap and gross and the person with them looks like they don’t practice personal hygiene then it’s a Hard Pass
Let's settle this once and for all, what's the best unnatural haircolor for medium dark skin?
Dark Blue? Dark Green?
Undertone is the most important factor.
Are black? Then it's fine, but if you're a dumb white bitch no.

I swung by Midwest Fur Fest yesterday out of morbid curiosity and to kill some time, and the things I had seen cannot be unseen. I was only there for a couple hours but the emotional scars will last forever. Any other anons ever been to a degenerate con like that just for shits and giggles? How did it go?

>Decent ones being a creep
I've had an all too familiar realization. This guy that worked with me at a previous job randomly invited me out for drinks. I knew he was a furry from talking to him, but I thought nothing of it. He seemed like a decent person who just happened to be a furry. I thought he'd be at least more interesting than a normie. Turns out he's 200% gay and the entire time we hung out he tried to convince me that I was also gay because I "never tried it" and that we should suck each other's dicks. He told me he was into balloon porn and other shit and his laundry list of kinks. He kept trying to grab my dick and put his hands on my lap. I was in his car and didn't want to pay $60 for Uber surge to get home. After four hours of me saying "no," I finally got home and told him to never speak to me again. Fuck furries, m00t was right all along about them.
>you are now aware that violent j's daughter is a furry
i get anxiety about knowing shit like this. like i might mess up and mention something about this publicly and reveal my powerlevels. fuck you guys. it's bad enough i already know who violent j is.

Its called "crinkling" anon
Actually you hit the nail on the head. But a big part of the smell comes from people in fursuits who don't take care of themselves or their costume and suit for way too long in the day generating huge sweat.

Furries come in 4 flavors. I'm gonna fucking reddit space these to make it easier for autism.

> unemployed autistic guy (nearly always male, 95%) with hair in a ponytail who faps to furry porn or draws it badly. Ugly as fuck, doesn't shower at the con at all and just sprays axe. More than likely part of the zoosadist ring or into vore. Stalks the popular furries at conventions to get photos and make them feel like they're friends on social media. Any age but usually 25-35.

> young furs aged up to 21. Still in school or college, draws a lot but may own a bad fursuit they made or a partial. If they come from tumblr they /reeee instead about being asexual or trans and leave around 25 when their animation degree doesn't get them a job. Traces most of their art from unknown artists and uses a pirated copy of SAI. Acts like a spaz at conventions and thinks getting wasted is the best thing to do, probably a weeaboo too only to cosplay.

> the furry with the successful ISP, either as an artist, Youtuber or suit maker. Big name in the fandom and they love attention, usually around 24-27 years old, has a fursuit, does drugs in the hotel room with commission money. Some are chill, some are batshit (telephone, falvie). It's an entirely mixed bag because you can also get 40+ year old fans in here too.

> adults with a real job they got after graduating college (can go right up to surgeons, politicians, ex-army and engineers at NASA). May own a high quality fursuit or not. Aged 28+ they keep to their close group of friends and treat it strictly as a hobby. Attends conventions just to have a break from life, usually chill as fuck but the rarest to find.

Powerlevel: was a furry myself until I saw the light
>some are batshit (telephone, falvie)
I want to know about falvie

There hasn't been one of these in a good while. Send me your worst.

her actual cosplays don’t seem too bad. like her bowsette is patron bait but what bowsette isn’t?
I wonder if she wasn't getting enough attention through cosplaying and decided to go the thot route or if it just happened naturally
Honestly there are so many girls I want to absolutely pour attention onto and practically worship. Unfortunately I'm not handsome and will come off as creepy, and those few that do take my compliments I'll always think are after my money.
no, this was a patreon preview alongside actual lewds. i'd say she realized just how much thots can make if they're both hot and good at cosplaying
