/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.

/cgl/ Idol Spreadsheet (Recently updated, under new management!) - https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1WtgRe5cjKIR0BYGhw9N8ahxChLqEFLbZIRbAazooh-o/edit?usp=sharing

Original Music Playlist: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLfmgukQM2isUtJJZz1MY4Jn4zPcbl0wDU

Previously:
-Lots of new releases - covers, originals, and some idol festival footage
-Idols and LGBT - show or hide your pride?
-Which cons celebrate idol and dance panels, and which try to keep them out of the programming?
-We need more mixers in the community, consensus seems to be that most of the releases in last threads are pretty okay but in need of a decent mix/master
-What sort of posts are good for between releases?

Starter topic: I'm gonna piggyback off of some of the discussion in the last thread, and ask about idols getting involved with causes. Do you enjoy seeing idols support causes and charities that are important to them? How do you balance this without getting too political? Is it unavoidable to get a little political if the cause you are supporting is tied in with human rights? What are your expectations, or what would you like to see or not see, when it comes to idols and groups using their influence to try and make a difference? Should they stick to lighthearted causes, or is it okay to try and campaign for heavy topics like suicide prevention, mental health, etc?

The song is so cute in my opinion
>>
>>10198608
I mean, it's slightly better than how their songs normally turn out. Although I still don't understand how Natalie has been making music for like eight years and her beats still sound like she's a beginner. The MV would have been a lot cuter if they actually planned out what each person would do or tried to coordinate a dance everyone could learn. It kinda just looks like they told all their members "idk record some idol looking stuff" and it's all over the place in terms of dance moves, cutesy actions, and lipsyncing. Until Flusay Girls becomes self aware enough to actually hold their members to some sort of standard, they will always be a beginner-tier idol group.
>>
>>10198625
Yeah i'm still pretty amazed that Flusay Girls is like 9 years old and they still sound so meh. Is there no one telling them where they should improve?
>>
>>10198646
I’ve always felt like the members always fall into two tiers:
>always told they’re good when they’re not
>doesn’t listen to criticism/“hate”
>>
>>10198608
The song is cute but shit the vocals and mixing need a lot of work....
And the one member needs to work on.... like... not looking dead....

Didn’t find one in catalog, so here we go.

To add to this; meanwhile, Ahoy is closer to neighbourhoods like Charlois and has tons of places with shady people out there. Personally, I was well-covered yet also got a fair share of harassment while waiting on a friend just because I looked funny; there just happens to be a lot of creepy people out there where in The Hague strangers may have been obviously confused, maybe called some names, but they seemed way less.. hostile?
>>
>>10197898
idk.. I've been paying attention at Nishicon, and I noticed that building a convention in Theaterhotel these days is a lot easier, since the ambience is already there. The theatre already has basic lighting, a mixer and an audio set There's a large TV in every room suitable for lectures. Their catering already knows what to expect, and what to serve. Securing the place is quite simple, so no need for a small army of rent-a-cops: just a couple in addition to the regular stewards should suffice to keep the peace.

So, yeah, the budget will be lower, but the cost will be too, and if you would make it a little exclusive by not going back to the pricing of 7 years ago, but somewhere in between, I reckon Animecon is fully capable of going back to the good old days for a weekend, for those who want it.
>>
I need Teddyloid 2020.
>>
>>10197960
I live very close to Ahoy and I have never been harassed, even during Animecon. I got a bunch of people (mostly elders) who came up to me and would ask what was going on. But I did get harassed INSIDE of Animecon.
>>
As someone who's spent a good chunk of their life in Rotterdam, I usually get left alone when wearing more "out there" clothes or straight up costumes. Of course some remarks about what is going on or if there is an event, but nothing inappropriate.
However, when I wear normie clothes, no matter if it's a lot of skin in summer or I'm all bundled up for winter, that's when I experience Rotterdams bad reputation for street harassment.

Just how accurate are you looking to get to that particular one? At a glance it looks almost exactly like the old Army class A's. Check Ebay and surplus stores cause they've been phased out and are probably flooding those places.

I have a good idea for a cosplay. Deadpool! He is my favourite superhero, he is so funny and raunchy, there is no one like him. I think cosplaying him will be fun. People will take pictures of me and I can act all goofy (like in the picture!). But most of all it'll be unique, not like any of the other cosplayers. Deadpool is not a well-known superhero.

What do you think?
>>
Is this the lame jokes thread?
>>
>>10196876
Deadpool cosplayers are known to grope and sexually assault cosplayers and get away with it
One of my friends was dating one and she dumped him after he ditched her (she bought his ticket with her merch and food money) and he went to go hit on girls with the pack of deadpools

I've been following this thread & taking note of all the suggestions (much thanks) as my husband & I are going to be in Japan for the first time (a little after January into February).

I know that wearing Lolita fashion is already a subculture in the Tokyo area, but what about other areas (like Kyoto/Osaka or Hiroshima)? Is it looked at as strangely, if not more so? Thanks for any input.

Can anyone list second-hand lolita shops?

Stop spreading misinformation. Going on vacation to Japan for a week doesn't make you an authority on the country after you leave. Liz Lisa closed on January 31.

>>10198686
People will look at you strangely. The average Japanese person doesn't actually know what lolita fashion is. But since Japanese people are polite they'll largely ignore you. I wouldn't recommend wearing lolita if you go to the atomic bomb museum in Hiroshima, it's a very somber place.

Wunderwelt, Fril jp (now combined with rakuten), Closet Child (this has a physical location), and Mercari jp.
Wunderwelt is kind of shit though because they mark up heavily, closet child is nice and have tons of blouses, jewelry and bags if you need any, and fril & mercari are pretty generously priced. You’ll see dresses for ¥10000 or less sometimes or damaged AP shoes for ¥3000 (which can easily be repaired with leather paint).

A-kon is in less than two weeks now. Are you still going? If not, what other cons are you planning to hit up this year? Any big cosplay plans?

Old thread hit image limit >>10102923

This thread is for ouji and aristocrat (aka "boystyle") discussion. "Boystyle" is shorthand for "boystyle lolita" and refers to the masculine counterparts of lolita and, often, aristocrat fashions. There is a lot of overlap between these styles, and different people use different terms to describe them. So, consider this a thread for those whose style is on the right half of Buttcape's Lolita Family Triangle: http://www.kawacura.com/moripress/wp-content/uploads/2015/06/0dmmLH6-350x350.jpg

Haven't been in contact with lots of F+F stuff, but it seems Box will probably have a softer fabric than F+F, whcih will probably fit fine but maybe not in all places. Boz has men's sizing but it's not bigger by much, but their pieces are very flattering on most people.
>>
>>10195217
F+F has very hit and miss quality AND fit, and they tend to use quite cheap fabric overall. I think they must use a number of either small factories or home sewers given the variety of quality.
>>
>>10195217

The fit might be tougher to figure out. I do know that Boz has fewer sizes, but better quality IMO

Can I get away with just using BB cream?
>>
>>10197153

Hair/Makeup thread is probably better suited for questions like this >>10167312
If you have skin problems they can probably also point you in the right direction. For hair advice I'd suggest going to /fa/ though.

As for BB cream, it's basically foundation with moisturiser. It's usually a little stickier than powder foundation so you probably won't need a base, but it has its downsides and doesn't do everything, so:
- if you dirty clogged pores, it'll show up even more because BB cream won't stick to whiteheads. Keep an eye out for these and exfoliate if you notice them.
- if you have really bad acne BB cream won't cover it up either
- Depending on the colour of your dark circles and the undertone of your BB cream, it'll do anything from cover them up, nothing at all, or actually make them worse lol
- dry lips, puffy eyes, etc that have nothing to do with foundation all still need their own fixes.
- Some BB creams (like some foundations) are remarkably opaque and matte, so yes, check in the mirror if you look dead and flat after you put it on. If you do, you probably need some blusher, maybe a little highlight so you don't look like dead plastic

Gonna add, there's sebum control base and matte fixing spray for those dudes (and dudettes) with oily skin. Helps you not look like an oil spill by midday (doesn't help if you were actually sweating, nothing really helps much with that)
