• 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.

Tell me about your local cringlords, /cgl/

The fanbase in Buenos Aires can be cringe. I hate whenever they mix geek terms into spanish (“shipear,” “estoy re-hype,” and your usual otaku terms)

Not a lot of actual cringe in person, all things considered. The smell in the game room at jigoku events is fucked, though. I guess it’s worth mentioning a few people I noticed

>this cosplay thot who is the gf of some local youtuber - she posts dumb feminist shit on twitter, and loves to call out dumb perverted males on instagram. Or, well, she used to, it doesn’t look like she does it anymore. Despite having around 45k followers on instagram, her patreon gets less than 10 patrons, almost like she should have realized that many of her followers are perverted males, and pissing them off cost her some beta orbiter bucks.
>this pale fat guy that takes pics of every event he attends. His camera is shit, and he seems oddly fixated on this underage girl, with a few pics that genuinely make me worry. She’s not getting groped but it’s close...also, he took a pic of a cosplay girl’s ass from a distance, clearly without asking. Dude looks like an ogre, so he ruins every pic he is in.
I have no idea who you're talking about and I've been in the ATL comm for YEARS. is she local or something? got pics?
It’s ok if they’re asian though
Other people I'd nominate are mark (apple pie) chris and the creepy footfetish guy.

I'd mention the cosplays but that would reveal my taste in anime. And from what I've learned talking online and in discord, no matter what show you watch or how popular or obscure it is, its shit.
Well do you wanna talk about it on a throwaway, I’m actually curious now. Whether you are a degenerate or not I want to know
Maybe it needs a better airflow, like open windows and doors more often. My bathroom is dusty af for some reason
A girl I don't like at all commented on a fb sales post saying something along the lines "Can you hold until Thursday when I get paid and I'll buy it"

so I bought it via the lacemarket listing to spite her.
I hope it was at least something you would've otherwise bought

That anon is a dumb fuck, just drop it.
When it was explained to her (and very nicely, at that), she continued attacking people anyway and went on about BLM and MLK when no one even asked, though.
I agree the wording could have been better, but the person didn't even care after it was elaborated on.
Ofc not, the other anon is just a newfag being autistic.
Yes, after it was explained to her she didn't really change her opinion, but I don't really see racism, it was more like attentionwhoring as in endless rambling regardless of the feedback.
So can black girls pull it off? If not, it's an aesthetic that excludes them bc of their skin color.

I think darker skin can look great with pastels, dark hair not so much.

I reportet one yesterday, because it made me literally uncomfortable, like I'd stumbled across lowkey kiddy porn. But Instagram deemed it okay.

what is with that awful yellow normie top
which print is this?
Dream Cosmetics by Diamond honey. It's a really cute print. If only it wasn't made outta chiffon and the bodice was cuter I'd say it'd be worth the price or even more.
I like the contrast here. She really matched the shoes with her hair, huh?

Loved this monochromatic coord. She looks really nice in those colors and everything seems on point even if she has no bangs.

This is fucking cute. Does anyone have her @?

She could change her shoes a bit and it would look better.

Wish i had someone to twin prints.

The summer Paris meet was small but very successful, now it’s time for the Winter Chicago meet.
Are you planning to attend?

The comm-wide parapara project was also a success, the next one is currently being planned.

OfficeKiko x Esperanza boots started an old school gal nostalgia revival, followed by an event in Shibuya 109, now OK is doing a denim collaboration that is also inspired by gal/90’s fashion.
Did you buy the boots yet? Are you interested in the new denim

It also seems as though gyaru is having a small revival in the western community, are you excited or annoyed with all of the newbies?

Any winter meets planned locally? If so, are you/your circle/comm doing anything special for the holidays?

Exactly. Here's what happened when Yukipoyo tried doing no eyelash and no circle lens make-up:

Why does she think this look good? I hope someone gives her some advice and I can only imagine how it looks to others.
That along with gyaru magazines going less flashy & people thinking wearing liz lisa qualify you as already gyaru killed gyaru. A 5 sec search of the tag gyaru... will show up with countless chicks wearing liz lisa with bare makeup.
Tbh sng wouldn't be anywhere near this shitty if Heather would actuslly get off her ass and either moderate the group herself or appoint some new mods now that she's not into gal any more. Unmoderated groups will attract morons. Yet apparently she can be bothered to step in whenever people complain about how shitty the group is. Why even have a group for gyaru if anyone can post whatever unrelated shit without any moderation?

My official badges are fine, but what the fuck. I thought Booth goods would be better than this.
that's so cute thanks for sharing
Make sure to put a homemade in your bag so you get shot like you deserve
The fact you guys think it's just one anon hating these threads is hilarious. You know this thread is one of the most hated and argued about threads on this board because of your OTT autistic behavior. It's historically been a thread of drama and lulz. Trust me, it's not a samefag hating on you, there's a huge lot of us who'd wish you'd all just fuck off and take the hint already.

its so easy to spot a taobao dress compared to a brand dress, for me personally, it's the art on taobao dresses that really puts me off. Its just so incredibly corny looking compared to brand art also the dresses are always so much more shiny

...without looking like you've outgrown your clothes?

Nowadays many young women are over 170cm/5'7, so I thought a thread like this might be helpful for many of us.
How do you do it? Is it even possible to wear cute things if you're over a certain height? Especially shoes are such a big problem.

I don't quite understand what needs explaining here. You get matched with someone, you send them a present or a card; someone gets you as a match and you receive a present or a card.

There were different price tiers and a form to fill out before the event started to help your santa pick things for you.

>pale aesthetic blogs
> inherently have nothing to do with skin color.
>skin color

Are you feeling ok?
From the ita tread
>pale aesthetic is a visual scheme, not a race thing, so white people can't be offended at hating on it. It's just like hating vaporwave.
Is a reaction to why a black person is totally valid hating on it for excluding black people, and "fuck your pale aesthetic" can sound racist and rude.

It's either connected to race or just a "visual scheme". How can something only be racist to one race, but not the other, without being racist just because of that?

No, its the hypocritizy that you complain about being excluded on skin colour then go on exclude people based on skin colour that makes them mad. And not many like hypocrites, no matter race.

People making a pale aesthetic block tell you to make your own black aesthetic blog. People focusing on black skin tell you to fuck your pale aesthetic because they feel excluded. You really don't see the difference.
Are we still talking about extreme parallels with pale and black or are we in the middle with tan and yellow
Then why don't you actually bolster black people who want to be included? Why are your pale aesthetic blogs okay, but you suddenly care about racism when we do it for ourselves after being told to piss off for wanting to be a part of it? Those communities wouldn't exist if white ones weren't so happy to exclude and erase anyone with dark skin. No one made a pale aesthetic blog after being excluded. That's the difference.
You're the only hypocrites for not seeing that.

You're probably right but I'm only saying this from the other side, as a girl who would like to minimize said S shape so my ass isn't so prominent in male crossplay. It sucks, dude. You could try padding your legs/butt and adding a stuffed bra to get more of the curve shape, but I'm at a loss for myself short of losing a lot of weight and standing in a more masculine way. Offhand, I tend to balance my weight on one hip often. I don't know if this is a thing with many women, but I have to keep myself from doing that and put my feet farther apart in photos to look less girly. Go for the opposite of that. Hand on a hip, shift your weight a little, add some to that by wearing a heel, etc.
Hey bros. I want to get into crossplay. I'm most worried about not looking feminine enough mostly by getting the make up wrong. I've looked at a few videos before I've actually bought anything so I think I have an okay idea of what to do. Is it hard to do makeup? How did you guys do your first time?

I want to do toga from bnha for my first time because all the egirls are doing it and it seems simple and has loose clothing. I feel like I'm a bit old to be getting started (22, almost 23) but I'm a pretty slight manlet so I think I can pull it off.

I've been looking through the op links but I'd appreciate any pointers/advice!
Makeup is not hard, it's a skill. You have to put the time and practice into it, just like anything else. There's no other way around it.

Start off with cheap makeup to practice before moving onto Sephora products or whatever. More expensive product is worth it but not necessary for crossplay.

You'll make mistakes like everyone else when starting out. If you don't have female friends to help out, then post here or in makeup threads for concrit. I'm able to do my own makeup a lot better now because I have a lot of IRL friends that give me feedback, and because I've put the time in to practice and get better.
this mogs all over my shitty meme costume I bought
you don't even necessarily have to pick something from japanese media.
pick a comic book or some videogame you like and go from there after all if you go to comic cons people still cosplay for shit like star trek and all that.

What are you stuck on?

I got the ST531HD. It's annoying as shit when I want nice results because it doesn't work right half the time
The character in question has wine-red eyes, so I'm debating if it's important enough to go through all the effort or if I should just forego it since it's not a regular eye color but it's also subdued enough to not be a defining trait
Here’s a reallt weird question. I just printed a breastplate on my 3D printer out of PLA but I forgot to add in some beveled edges and a few details. What should I use to build ontop of the print to make these? I’ve been thinking apoxie sculpt or foam + thermoplastic.

Yeah, Brother machines with lots of stitches have a nasty birdnesting problem. In my experience they struggle to feed thicker fabrics through properly (I've had that trouble with something as light as cotton drill, so when I say thicker I mean thicker than a single layer of poplin or some shit). The best advice I can give is
>Clean the bobbin case of lint like you've got OCD
>Clean your feed dogs out, and potentially oil them to
>Use really thin thread, if you're happy to splash out go for the proper silk buttonhole thread like Gutermann make
>Stick to a lower speed so go slow so you can help it through with your hands
>For thicker fabrics, press the shit out of the surface you want the buttonhole on first, just to get them softer rand flatter
>For tension, double check it's still good by straight-stitching with the buttonhole foot on first, the extra downwards push it puts on fabric doesn't help, you want it as close to perfect as possible, too tight helps the birdnesting, to loose and the satin stitching comes out puffy and weird
Beyond that it's a crapshoot for those machines

A recent post got me thinking about cosplayers who make a habit of cheating in masquerades or craftsmanship contests, especially since some contests have cash prizes attached now. Let's get a list going of cosplayers to be wary of, and any interesting stories you have about contest cheating. This can include:

>Claiming you made a mass-produced cosplay
>Claiming you made a commissioned cosplay
>Lying about how a part of a cosplay was made, or if it was made at all
>Repeated sandbagging (aka entering multiple contests with a cosplay that already won a more prestigious contest)
>Sandbagging the same convention with the same cosplay

In Netherlands we have Shoobie Cosplay, we know she buys costumes from AliExpress and enters competitions so she's going to international competitions where people don't know her lol she entered the Spanish ECG selection since she was born there
A contest I was in recently got sandbagged. Only a small con, but totally unfair what happened, couple entered a costume they had previously won first place with at a much larger con and had gone on (with different costumes mind) to win first place in the finals of that same contest with judges including Yaya Han and Kamui. Pisses me off when cosplayers do this, like, get in your fucking lane. I wish the U.K. would take on board divisions like US and Canadian cons. Our competitive scene is a joke in that respect.
You mean Corvidae Cosplay Emporium winning at Doki Doki after they won in those costumes at Birmingham FCC?

You're expecting a event run in a sports hall to do divisions? Doki Doki barely have enough people attending to fill a bus let alone have a good enough prize budget. If they did divisions everyone would be a winner because they have so few entries.
Not necessarily, It’s more the morale behind it. If you’re good enough to win the finals of LFCC and be judged by some of the biggest names in western cosplay, it might not be seen in the best light to enter small town contests and sandbag out the compition when you’re like, Euro Cosplay level.
I too am still a bit confused.
If a contest allows you to enter costumes that have won other contests (different cons), is that still sandbagging? Or is it impossible to determine without knowing the "size" and demographic of the cons?

In my local cons, its a requirement written for pretty much all of them that "Approximately 80% of the costume be made by the person entering the competition".
But it does very much depend on the con/contest itself
