/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.

Lolita, if you grew up with it and now you're an adult and still love it - how old is TOO old to continue? Is there an age? At what point does it start to look and feel cringy? Is there a collective opinion about adult and older women who go out in public in full ensemble? Just an outsider who's curious.

That's too bad, it had potential to be a subtle metaphorical jab about work/life balance. I'm a software eng with a background in embedded dev. Most programmers I've worked with have been very tech savvy about everything other than printers.

>>10223187
It doesn't have to be that way. None of these look like baby bonnets to me. There are lots of historical patterns, they take very little fabric compared to a dress. You can hand sew them, so no expensive equipment is required to make them. There's really no excuse for so many shitty bonnets in lolita.

Oddly enough doesn't seem to matter. Not sure if it's because I stick to shirred stuff or if puffed sleeves help to hide any fit problems or if it's because my shoulder width is 34.5cm, which is in between sizes anyway.

I've been to cons that are mostly women and mostly men (rufflecon and fighting game cons, respectively). The mostly male fighting game con had way more drama. Main benefit of an all female con is the overall lack of rancid BO smells.
>>
>>10223412
Yeah, rufflecon was so great that it ran out of money from low attendance and high costs for guests.
>>
>>10223428
thats what happens to extremely niche cons with nothing more to offer than imported guests

Post some progress pictures of your current projects!

Things going smooth sailing or are you hitting bumps in the road? Feeling the crunch time for an upcoming con?

Not very hard, there's no coding or programming involved and there's a lot of in-depth resources. I don't know shit about anything and I was able to get my 3D printer up and running in an hour or so. Still working on getting the settings just right but if I can do it you probably can too. If you can follow instructions you're fine.
>>10221606
I use Fusion 360 to model, you can get a free 3 year student license. Fusion 360 is sketch-based which makes it great for mechanical stuff, precise measurements and that kind of thing. Zbrush is good for organic shapes. I use Cura to slice. The workflow is make an STL in Fusion/Zbrush/whatever, slice it in Cura which gives you a gcode file, then the printer reads the gcode and prints your thing.

I’m making one of those old scraggly usakumyas! Just finished a second trial version in plain cotton - took a lot of fine tuning, but I’m getting there.

It’s your body so do what you want. But, unfortunately very noticeable scars can be distracting. I would want people to notice my costume, not my scars.
>>
>>10222191
I'll take the bait.

Scars are fine. I'm pro-dance tights for cosplays that show off thighs, and if someone wants to show off their arm or stomach scars that's their prerogative.

>>10222297 is right. It's a personal aesthetic decision, and it doesn't make someone "uwu so brave" to show them. The important part is the cosplay, wig, and makeup.
>>
I cover mine. They are old, healed, part of my past. I have 2 that are always visible no matter what I wear. I lightly blur them out with dermablend every day, just like a part of my makeup routine. I want people to see me, not my scars.

>accidentally cold to 4 people
You have to keep in mind that for those 4 people that's likely their ENTIRE interaction with you. It's a huge disconnect between customer and artist, the customers really don't think about what it's like having to work a table all day, they're not thinking about all the other people you've talked to and are going to talk to, and a lot of artists think it's fine to slip like this for a few customers when they have so many, and forget that for those individual customers, it wasn't just a ratio, it was 100% of their impression of you. What if one of those 4 people happened to be stealthing for your favorite studio or publisher or looking to wholesale merch or something? I know it's really hard to stay "on" 100% of the time you're working but it really is important.

>>10223176
>Getting so upset about people having a bad day that you call them infants
Geez you need to chill. Stress and bad events can get to anyone. Most people can relate to that and if they're unfortunate enough to catch you on a bad day abd get a bad impression then too bad. It's better to lose a few customers that are more sensitive about this stuff than getting burned out by trying to keep up appearances when your dog dies or something. As long as you normally try to be polite and customer friendly most people can deal. Getting mad at people not being 100% in control over their emotions ironically makes you seem like the one with anger issues here.

there is less than one month until Corset Day. will you join Japanese alternative fashionistas and share a corset-based coord for "コルセットの日"? ”corset day”.
コルセット Is ”corset”.
shops such as Dangerous Nude's Noble Noire are already having "corset week" events.

Western options for steel boned corsets include Orchard Corset, Mystic City, Timeless Trends.
Please share photos mostly because everyone loves to see the aesthetics, but questions and discussion OK too.
