/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 thinking some sort of Parlor larp, but then it might just be easier to play a Table Top. I really want to get immersed and set up a something like my previous picture as a set where players can do stuff. Maybe have an away team crew who NPCs for the bridge team, and a bridge team who NPCs for away team? Not sure how to do weapons other than easily lost nerf weapons, or maybe laser tag gear?

The Monitor Celestra was a 2013 Swedish BSG larp that took place on the Småland, a 1950s destroyer that is now a museum ship.

Projekt Exodus was a 2015 German BSG larp inspired by Celestra and used the 1960s destroyer Mölders. What that the one you were thinking of?

That’s the thing, it’s arguable as to weather it’s normal for men to be attracted to adolescents, but they simply don’t have the mental capacity to consent. I don’t think it’s pedo, since pedos are only attracted to under 10, but it’s weird he’d admit to being attracted to young teens.

Are arda wigs good? I really like GLW, but they never restock anything. I like thick wigs.
>>
>>10245851
Arda's really gone down a lot in quality control over the past couple of years. When you get something good, it's good, but sometimes you just get shit. Additionally, their restocks are so few and far in between that a ton of people end up buying their Ardas secondhand. Lately I've been using EpicCosplay instead.

if you want Best Wishes Pink and it's US only, why not ask a US gull to get it and ship it to you? You'd have to pay them for it, ofc, but it's not hard to do. Shit, I don't mind doing it as long as you pay up front.
email me if you want it so bad.
>>
>>10245938
Because I could probably get it much cheaper, or at least for a fair price if I look for it secondhand. You need to consider US shipping is 50 euro, I would have to pay a SS fee to the person who buys it, her public transport/shipping within the US to her, and taxes. I'd be looking at 350 usd for a cutsew dress that was originally 17000 yen, with no re-sale value if it doesn't look good on me.

This is the dream dress thread. Not “dresses I want but only under very specific conditions” thread.

I replied to someone who posted her dream dress. If you have it in black, I'm sure she would buy it from you. I wouldn't recommend that to her though, it'll pop up in Europe or anywhere besides the US eventually. This isn't the stupid decisions thread either.

I really don't want to go back to IG (the numbers stuff is annoying and anxiety-inducing for me), but I'd like to have fun editing and sharing my J-fashion photos.
I know that this one Lolita has a Neocities page for her stuff, and I think it'd be a good compromise. Would it be weird or come off as being a "copycat" if I started using it the same way, as well?
As a sidenote, are there any other platforms that are more "low-key" the same way Neocities is?

You could make an ig and have it be completely separate from the regular account. I know someone who has 3 igs, one for normal life, one for cosplay, one for makeup. Some website you have to format yourself will be a massive timesink for little reward, my advice is keep it simple

Suck it up. If you don't want your pics taken without your permission, don't go in cosplay to a con.
>>
>>10246093
That's like saying don't wear alt fashion if you don't want your photo taken. Some people want to enjoy a hobby without being treated like a spectacle and that's fair. They should probably just ask that person to stop taking photos if they don't want them to.
>>
>>10246094
>Some people want to enjoy a hobby without being treated like a spectacle and that's fair.

In public, sure. At a con, I disagree. It's just impossible to handle, weebs are obnoxious and will just not listen. And besides, if you don't want pics of your cosplay taken, why even wear it to a con? Cosplay is not alt fashion, it's a costume.
>>
>>10246098

Wearing a cosplay and enjoying dressing up as a character and having *professional* photos taken is different than strangers taking unflattering or unwanted candids.

Whether it is fashion or a costume people have a right to some level of privacy or consideration. Maybe I'm too nice and expecting too much of others but asking before taking photos is totally normal and not difficult.

This is not the cosplay help thread anyway though so they should probably ask there.
>>
>>10246106
I get what you mean and I'm not saying it's good to take people's pics without their permission; I'm a daily lolita and I absolutely hate it when people take pics of me in public, but I've given up telling them off because they just don't care. And it's even worse at cons, because weebs are entitled pieces of shit.

What's a good source for 4-way stretch fur fabrics?
>>
>>10244957
They posted those because they wanted that specific color. Read the post.

>>10244964
You can find a ton of different fabrics look like that just by looking up "metallic silver fabric" or "mirror silver fabric".
I wouldn't go with Yaya's metallic spandex like the other anon suggested because you can find similar quality spandex for cheaper elsewhere.

>>10245733
NFT is the only place that I know does stretch fur and their fur is priced at a whopping $45/sq ft. If you don't need long pile and just something that's fuzzy to touch, try looking for stretch minky or stretch fleece as those are easier to find and will definitely be cheaper than NFT's stretch fur.
>>
>>10245739
I've worked with minky fabric before, That's actually a really good idea, can't believe I didn't think of that. Thanks anon.
Question is; where can I get 4-way stretch minky fabric? I'm looking for ones with animal prints on them.
