/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.

Mehron Paradise paints are a very popular option, I don't see a lot of people using Snazaroo since the Homestuck days. You can seal both of them with translucent setting powder and/or makeup setting spray (I like MAC's). For the body, like the other anon said, I highly recommend armsocks and tights. They're reusable, don't smudge or leave stains, and won't melt off your body. Painting your entire body will take a lot of paint. Welovecolors has a huge range of colors, are completely opaque and now offer seamless gloves that cover the whole arm, so you'll only have to paint your face, neck and chest.
I think that would be fine

Shit! Didn't see this thread before! I'm sorry! I made a thread! Well, I suppose I'll ask here as well. My bad!

I'm trying to make a cosplay of a character that wears a helmet. I have the helmet (comprised of a face mask and a back piece that both come on separately and attach with velcro), but now I need a hat. Now, I can find the types of hats I need online, but the problem is, they are all sized for human sized heads. Not for HUGE FUCKING HELMETS.

Is there anything I can do to make a hat bigger in size without completely fucking it up shape/aesthetics wise? Or do I just need to start from scratch and make it somehow? I don't really have... ANY experience with this. I kinda thought if I just got the largest sized hat it would be able to fit over the top (the helmet isn't actually HUGE, and fits snugly around the head without much wiggle room, but still, relative to a human head, it's far bigger. It's basically a goddamn shell after all),

I have cash, but I don't really know where to start with this. Can anyone offer some help?
Thanks! At least It'll show up correctly in pics.
How do people practice posing for pictures? I've noticed it's probably the weakest part of my cosplay and something that seems to get left out if a lot of tutorials

Seems like something that can hide flaws and make ok cosplays look good

Good riddance to tripfags. How many AREN’T camwhores now.
Probably because less than 0.00000001% of women can handle open and honest discussion.

They're practically children.
Real itas are all but gone. It's either vendetta posts, nitpicks, fatty-hate, or calling out sissies/littles. The thread is a joke and no one gives a shit about it anymore.
>unwarranted critique and never looking good enough to be telling others to kys
Yea everyone anon here claims to not be samey but they all are.
Thats stupid. Theres tons of not sexy characters out there to cosplay. Cosplay isnt sexy by default. You just follow too many e thots on instagram and your view on cosplay has been warped.

How is it “cringy” to wear? What the actual fuck are you smoking?
sounds like a good idea for a thread. something like coord variety or getting the most out of your wardrobe, idk... you could just simply explain the concept in the description and put whatever as the title of the thread.
Just make it simple like “multiple coords with the same main piece”
"one piece three coords"?
I like the idea, but are thinking about picking the same piece from different people or from the same?
Is it true that Closet Child is looking to close its physical locations? I saw it on Facebook but can’t find any source, though I don’t read moonrunes.

Like the title says. Doesn't have to be eye-searingly ugly/wtf, just ones you don't like and why
I'll start. I never liked this print which makes this item double ugly for me

We haven't had one of these in a while and an anon asked for a new one, so here it is! I changed the template to include the rule of thumb and removed the unnecessary checkbox. I hope that's alright. If not, I'll post the original too.

As always, make sure to give suggestions in order to receive them unless you're the first poster.

>I would like to start going to more cons to let my gull gf wear her coords more often
That's charming.

In terms of what you're looking for, I think either Crocket or Tarma would be within your means of alteration. Dedede would require more work for a good looking costume, but if you're interested in doing that work then yeah, it would suit you. Out of your three picks, I'd shoot for Crocket. There are far too many other suggestions to narrow down from, but in general: suits, high school uniforms, and casual wear are the easiest to alter or buy premade from amazon.
You have to give recommendations to receive some, my dude.
You filled out your template in such a cute way, anon. You would honestly look good as any of these characters, but I think I'd choose Athena then Rin. Or I'd choose: Nico from Kiznaiver, the mc or Fran Chou Chou from Zombieland Saga, Chika from Kaguya-Sama, or Tohru from Maid Dragon.

Alright bitches, one of the most meh of summer cons is next month. What are your cosplay plans? Are you traveling from out of state to attend? Is there anything in particular you’re looking forward to? Are you an oldfag that is absolutely jaded by this convention but use it as an excuse to do molly and drink nonstop with total strangers for 4 days? Let’s discuss!

what do extroverts do?

part of the reason I'm going is to play FGs with irl folk. I've been wanting to play under night and cross tag with people now that they're having the late night game rooms. (completely unsure if that was a thing before hand)
They might have just parted ways Anon. It sucks.

Wash your hands more. Consider carrying around a small bottle of hand sanitizer.
I was in the game room most of the time touching the same shit as everyone else and I'm totally fine.
I live less than 5 minutes away from Gene and Jude's and have yet to go there.
Holy crap! You guys are legendary! Thanks for answering my question!

Did you guys also think up what powers each of the stands had?

Also, would it be possible for me to get the full res art of the stands? I'd just like to save it for posterity.
If he wanted to darken his skin he should have gone father than his face + chin. Stopping there and leaving the ovious lines between dark skin + light makes me think he's a dumbass chud who wanted to be called out like that maga cosplayer
Gene & judes is fucking great. Go there instead its hella cheaper and hella better. They do get offended if you ask for ketchup though so be careful.

This is adorable! The edges are fine, I just wonder if a tad bit more contrast would help distinguish shapes at a distance
Chiming in with Anon that the crayon style will either not stand out after being printed or will look like low a quality grainy print. On my phone I can't really tell it's textured and links hair looks very grainy, I'd test it out before making a batch.
so my first ever tabling experience is at fanx and now im highkey freaking out after looking up the attendance. any other seagull gulls here???
if anyones ever attended a 60k+ con, about how many sales/transactions have do you average?
I'd lighten the background until the characters pop out better. Keep in mind, you'll want this sticker sheet to be read easily at a distance.
Its really cute

>if anyones ever attended a 60k+ con, about how many sales/transactions have do you average?
The same amount as a con of any other size.

I mean it's going to be hot as fuck even at night so for 'summer' cons you'll find out that it's worth it to pay an extra 10-30$ a night to stay closer.

And it's Atlanta, just walk with a group at least. Common sense stuff you should practice no matter the location.
Adding onto this, if you forget to bring deodorant or if it wears off, you can go to a bathroom and rub a little liquid soap on your armpits.
It’s not just stinky day, it’s going to be a stank ass weekend. With this many nerds in one place there’s going to be a visible cloud of miasma. I regret Atlanta, I regret anime.
Thank you!

Well I mean, at least they are refunding it completely and no sales counted.
Still retarded it happened though.
So have ya'll gotten your badges yet? I saw a bunch of people got theirs 2 weeks ago and I still haven't even gotten a shipping confirmation email.
should I be worried?
Heard they send it by batches. Got mine two weeks ago, but I'm still waiting on my Preshow badge and I haven't received a shipping confirmation for that yet. Arkansasfag here if that means anything.

/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

-Some dumb shit about Idolized (reminder: there's a lolcow post if you really need to shitpost)
-Idols using cosplays from Love Live as stage outfits
-Julily has pretty dress
-How much for an original song composition? Gulls start talking money
-One Wish posts awkward video, provokes question of "how long can a group call themselves new and be excused for shoddy performances?"
-How can Western idols appeal to Western audiences?

Starter topic: Actually I'd like to use the last bit of discussion on the previous thread and ask about languages. What are the merits of singing songs (covers and originals) in your own language versus in Japanese? Is it still jpop if it's not in Japanese? How about just jpop inspired? Should idols even go for a jpop appeal, or use their music to showcase the culture and language of their own region? Feel free to share worldwide examples of overseas and net idols singing in their own languages.

Which Mimi?
I think so. I even checked on other accounts and can’t find it. Either that or she changed the name.
Yeah, checked posts she was originally tagged in too and her @ is gone from them
She definitely didn't change the name. It's gone...

How do you feel about black people cosplaying white characters? I'm black (male) and I want to cosplay but have a feeling people won't take me seriously.

It is NEVER EVER okay to appropriate another persons culture or dress up in their clothing.

If I saw someone who thought this is funny or just a joke in real life I would knock you out.
I actually agree with you, Yu Narukami is a beautiful culture and I hope he enriches my asshole
Blacks mothers have to live in fear every day that their innocent child will be murdered by the police just because he robbed a store and you think white people are oppressed?

As a black male that has cosplayed many white characters over 8 years even gender bent, I have received a lot of praise and photos cosplaying, at the end of the day your cosplay needs to not be complete trash because thats what people see first, not your skin. Weebs ESPECIALLY dont care about your race. As for my personal opinion If i can tell you're the character, have your tattoos and piercings covered/out, and have a clean shave then youre fine. Most niggas out here cosplaying dont shave and because of that i just cant take them seriously. Though cosplay doesnt always have to be cool and serious, it can be fun/funny (as its supposed to be). I saw the darkest dude ive ever seen do an Ann genderbend but he had on shutter shades and had a thick ass beard and it was actually the best cosplay id seen the entire con. Shat on all the thotty 2Bs and Wendys girls. People are at cons to have fun, it is the best environment to not care about petty things like race. Its just shitters and shitters in costumes confusing the locals.
People do that all the time? Do you live under a rock my dude?
