/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.

Dude works 60 hours a week
This isn't "making excuses," he literally doesn't have the time.

Nothing wrong with buying or commissioning a cosplay, unless you're a SERIOUS purist.

Some people have time to spare. Some people have money to spare. Few people have both.

>>10133573
People seriously forget that cosplay is about dressing up as your favorite character and having fun. How dare people do that without sinking dozens of hours into sewing/crafting if they have the choice not to.

There are a few accounts I skim through for shits and giggles whenever they pop up in my feed. Their low quality work isn't what gets me, it's their attitude. Pretending to be cosfamous, to be on par with the best of the community and proudly sharing their pictures which are riddled with unflattering bad posing. As in "slouching like a bag of potatoes with their head pulled back resulting in a massive underchin" bad posing which the first thing you learn not to do in any posing lesson.

Serious question. But are there any Dutch Patreon cosplayers? If so, who are they?

Depends on what kind of content you're looking for.

I'm 27 and have been here since 2007 (don't worry, everyone was underage b& at the time). They've been here for a while but I've used 4chan with the page format for so long that I never switch to catalog view. I'd rather just have an infinite page script.

I don't have any other pieces from the shop to compare with but I also bought the Rose Doll OP. The main material is a plush velveteen and it's also lined with cotton. Construction is solid and sizing is pretty accurate.
>>
>>10133377
Yes it fucking is if these people bought the dress not for themselves. They bought it to resell. They listed it for sale the same day they bought it. They just got lucky in the number draw and knocked out girls who actually wanted to wear it. It's not like they put it up for auction and let the bids get that high. Even then, they still bought the dress to make money off of.

How to style dream holic wig fringe like how they're advertised? I want that smooth curl.
>>
>>10133309
Look at the listing, the decoration is just a clip and the base is nothing special
>>
>>10133488
Use a small straightener on low heat to bump them, either with the wig on a head or on your own.

I like to split the bangs into two halves horizontally if that makes sense, so you have half the hair at a time to work with. Clip away the upper half.

Start with the underneath half, and take about a one inch piece and use the flat iron to curve it inward, so it curls towards your forehead. Hold the piece in your hand for a few seconds until the hair cools down, otherwise it'll drop the curl. Repeat, then let down the upper section and repeat again. Then comb everything together and use hairspray to help it all stay in place.

I hope that made sense. Its a bit hard to explain without visuals.
Kawaii Pateen has some hair tutorials from Misako, and I believe she shows how she bumps her bangs in some of the videos. You basically want to do the same thing, but work in smaller sections and hold each piece in place until the hair cools because synthetic just behaves a little differently from human hair.

>>10133498
They're made to be customizable, that way you can add whatever decoration looks best with your outfit

Not that anon but I can’t imagine that going over well, since the seats themselves probably weren’t reserved. In my comm you pay to get access to the venue and food but everyone’s free to sit wherever. I agree that the guy shouldn’t have been there and definitely shouldn’t have eaten anything without paying but the specific seat he was sitting in probably didn’t belong to anon. I’ve been to multiple meetups where there was no room for me at the table I would’ve liked or someone I didn’t like sat down next to me but there’s not much you can do in that situation without offending people.

Unless this meet did have seating arrangements and nameplates, in which case he definitely should’ve been told to gtfo that seat.

I wish my picture wasn't so blurry so we could all appreciate the details, but yeah! I remember looking at them in passing and wondering what anime had sailors in it until I saw the fire sword and recognized the color schemes. They were really well made, not just slapped together gag costumes. It's been years, but I think they took some pictures with other senshi too. All around good memory.

This is going to sound really stupid but I hope someone can help out!

My first cosplay is going to be the not so original Toga from hero academia. The outfit is bought and made some adjustment myself but I never styled a wig before.

I already tried to follow some tutorials but I have feeling I cut the bangs bit to short.

Is there anyway to fix it by styling the longer side in a diffrent way or just buy a new wig and try again?
>>
>>10133406
You can try brushing the hair to the sides to make it look less awkward but it's not going to look accurate to reference art most likely. Go get another wig if accuracy is worth it to you.

Pic related if anyone gets the reference
>>
>>10133526
Stupid advice, just get your almost identical looking little sister with the correct hair to sub in for you.
>>
>>10129370
I know this is late. My zero two has a plastic piece with magnets that I insert under the wig. The horns then sit on top of the wig. It is really secure. Uses three small magnets. Two on sides and one in the middle.
>>
>>10133406
You can try sewing in another weft over the bangs and recutting it

About 3 or 4 I think, along with other girls from my circle who aren't skinny either. Stop making excuses, you just sound bitter. If you're good AND fat/chubby, people will still like your outfits. If they don't, then like I said, git gud.

IFF is being run by the Anime Rev team. A few photographers I spoke with said Anime Rev is dying . So who knows if this will be any good. They already picked a bad weekend(easter weekend) so I don't expect anything big on the friday or sunday.
