• 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.

I'm thinking about throwing money around and trying different types of dog ears but not many stores have them. its around a 9 week wait for these.
My personal tier list is similar to the one in OP except for a few stores. I bought a KittenandCutie set and resold them almost immediately because I didn't like the quality. I own 2 pairs of Lovelyfurr ears that I'm on the fence about keeping or trading because I don't like how stiff they are but love the shape and color.

I own a pair of RaspberryNeko MTO ears and I'd say they're good quality for the price. I waited about 7 weeks for mine (about a 6-week wait + 1-week shipping).
There are shops that do canine shapes more often than others (Lovelyfurr, KittenTherapyShop, Aukami, etc.), so you should keep an eye on them. Hosh has also announced corgi ears for her next release and last week's SR ears were canines too.
i got a couple pairs of their mto puppy ears and my opinion is that they’re worth the $25 and good for the price. nowhere near hosh or ac quality obviously, but they’re sturdy and have clean edges. wired all the way through so you can adjust the bends. the trimming and edges can be a tiny bit uneven on some areas. I wouldn’t pay over $40 for them because of the lack of detail, but puppy ears are folded anyways so you don’t see much of the inners. they’re also nice for using as a base if you want to airbrush your own shading onto them.
I've been buying a lot of ears from smaller shops and I'm torn between helping advertise vs keeping the names to myself so I have less competition with buying what I want... I've been sharing the shops with my friends, at least.
I'd love if you would share, but I understand why you're apprehensive about it.

Come clean and ‘fess up your lolita secrets ITT. Like: How many of you here are lolitas at heart who have never even worn the fashion? Who shitposts, rolls their vpn and posts again? Who has gotten jealous and made a mean secret?

That's just a handful of anons. Your opinion is actually more popular.
It’s so hard that I’ve found I had to learn it on my own. There are every good resources in normie fashion, so I learned there. Unfortunately, most lolitas can’t dress themselves out of lolita, so they’ve never learned these things. It’s how you get people obsessively matching colors or only noticing boobloaf but not things like shoulder fit
Anon, I was at a meet last weekend where people were rudely begging to buy clothes off people’s backs. This fashion very much normalizes the idea that other people’s things are just a few weeks and some cash away from being your things
Your comm is crazy and not normal
I have yet to find a gothic brand that fits my shoulders well desu

Since the last thread got pruned, you can post any sample capsules you made here. You are welcome to still make or fill requests, but let’s open up some conversation to hopefully reduce the stupid

>Do you use capsule wardrobes in jfashion
>If so, how big is it?
>Do you use any formulas? >How helpful is capsule going for you?
>If not, do you want one?

>with the repeated print
That was the request
I halfway completed this request and gave up, so I can confirm. Someone asked specifically for this.
What are the three strap shoes? This is pretty nice besides the unnecessary red bolero. That could work if it had more red to coordinate with like a bag or shoes
Is it ok if I fulfill requests using basically all one brand?
There’s a red bow and there’s red in most of the prints. To each their own, but I like adding a piece or two in an accent color for variety’s sake.

Anyway, the shoes are Les Bourdons

What is the key to making cosplay that is "so bad its good"?
3 replies and 1 image omitted. Click here to view.
Like it says on the tin, make it so bad, its good.

Also helps if it has a lot of visual impact, no matter how bad the impact is.

Make it so memorable that it becomes seared onto somebody's brain even after eye bleach
dont think too much about it
That's more creepy than funny. It would fall in the "so bad it's terrifying" category.
A touch of humor helps.
One of my favorite cosplays I saw all of last year was a King Dedede that was just a guy in a red robe with a cardboard sign that said "will succ for money"

The real trick is to live in the surrounding area of a big city so you're still in driving distance to do stuff but have lower living costs
Exhibit A of lolitas being fucking narcissists
>city folk don't care that much about lolita.
This. Plus people in smaller towns may have some consistent walking routines so they might remember "that weird lady in puffy clothes" who appears aroung the block at times. It's easy to become a local lunatic.
You’re the narcissist, or maybe retarded, if you think that a thread that opens with a kamikaze girl pic, talks about lolita, lolita wardrobes, and mentions taobao and brand, is somehow not about lolita. There is not a single mention of cosplay, you must be a huge narcissist to think conventions = cosplay and ignore the fact that lolitas go to conventions.
>Live in a capital city
>Somewhat active comm, but lonelita by choice
>Don’t give shit about cons
>lots of disposable income, buy all the burando

It can easily be done. I’m a Eurofag and I live in a small apartment, but it’s enough for me. I enjoy the convenience of a big city (read: museums, castles, parks etc.) and can still buy brand.

Been a little while, let's get one of these up again.

You know the deal, post yourself, cosplay you'd like to do/have done in the past, give some context, and help others with suggestions.

And as always, give suggestions in order to recieve them (unless you're the first poster)!

Apologies, I threw this together on the fly and my shitty editing app cant place text worth a damn.
Affordability is pretty open, I could spend maybe 500 absolute max on a costume, and it would have to be pretty spectacular.
I'm fairly novice at sewing and crafting but I'm developing my skills slowly, so some opportunities to exercise that would be great, I love making big props.
I like characters with fun personalities that I can really get into. Usually more of a sporty/alt type.
Willing to cosplay boys but my hips dont really allow it to be done well.
I'm also dropping more weight slowly but surely. Goal is 125lbs.
You could probably pull off bottom right pretty well. Also Akira from Devilman

I wish the other gothic lolitas in my comm were also actual goths so we could go to synthwave events together. I'm so jealous of the Ontario comm!
I wished I had a Lolita friend (any substyle desu, but goth or old school = best) that would go to Therion concerts or metal festivals with me. Mega jelly of the Ontario comm too anon.
my comm had a vote for a new mod and the mod running it only let it stay open for 24 hours and didnt link it in the page or announce it more. so her best friend is now the other mod, so we have 2 bitchy girls in charge. i want to move.
Yeah that was ridiculous. Should've been up at the very least for a week. My vote went to AJ.

Yep, i have to room wed-friday, then saturday-monday. They said its just the friday that the issue is on. ):
They posted the cosplay meetup schedule and is it me or is it kinda all over the place organization wise.
Only one KnY meetup but two hypmic ones on the same day?
Some rooms opened yesterday, keep an eye out
officially got my room, not at the gaylord but at the hampton, but close enough
does anyone know what the rave is like?
The first agent told me to just keep calling back (they're not allowed to keep a waiting list) in case there's a cancellation and she seemed hopeful- but the second agent basically told me my group is fucked and she doesn't expect any cancellations /: so i'm hoping someone out there has decided they don't need a whole wyndham room? Ugh

I've just grabbed this cloak from Boz off of YJA, together with a blouse from the same seller.

Wardrobe season is almost upon us gulls! It seems like it's a bit of a dying tradition, but surely there's still some of participating this year.

>Have you gotten started?
>Favorite wardrobes from last year? Any you're looking forward to/hoping for?
>Best place for posting?
>Setups? Photographing everything or just the main pieces?
>Why is it dying?
I know many of us liking looking at the dresses and with the current obsession with flexing, you'd think more people would join in lol.

>If you set goals last year, did you achieve them?
>Those that have done posts on multiple years, have you noticed any trends?
For instance, I went back to look at past years and noticed that when I first started out I bought more dresses during the year because I was just eager to own a lot but ended up selling most of them. This past year I only bought six dresses but they're dresses that I absolutely love and won't be selling any time soon.

The layout is similar to brands stores of the past. I need to where they got this made from because my wardrobe needs that set up asap minus the table for kumas. A ornate dressing table would be awesome to have. Oh B612, I’m jealous of your storage.
I keep checking LJ every day for new posts but there's only been one recently. Not many new YouTube videos either. Are people posting elsewhere?
Do you log in? Sometimes posts only pop up for me when I'm logged in.
Yes, I've been logged in this whole time.

Where though?

Damn if you're going to do the "thot who calls just a wig cosplay" at least make the wig canon. Talentless whores can't even do a hair loop.

>Whatever that new zoomer anime is (some samurai shit with that e=mc2 weirdo)
Dr. Stone

Man, me and a friend got a room with randoms at a con and 3 of them were Black Butler cosplayers. 2 women, 1 guy and the guy was an utter psychopath. It was crazy because one of the women just got absolutely trampled on by the other two, she never got to make a decision the whole weekend and at one point when she was having fun with us playing some shitty CAH ripoff, the guy stormed into the room and told her it was time for bed a basically forced her away from the group of us who were playing. The guy at one point in the weekend was livestreaming to his 'fans' and got pissed at me and my friend for walking through the kitchen/living room space to get to the other connect room to hang out with other people in the hotel.

Long story short, facebook explosions happened and it turned out that the 2 that were walking all over that poor girl were called out for forcing her to be bi, dye and cut her hair, and a bunch of other crazy shit.
Bronies no question. Creepy at best, disgusting at worst. I’ve yet to meet one that isn’t somehow red-flag level disturbing. I have auto-avoidance on sight when I see any guy with anything FiM. Maybe it did not start out that way but it absolutely ended up that way and since anyone who stayed in the fandom knew this, just nope to it all.

Ponies on head retarded perverts wallowing in their filth.

When even the Chan makes a walled off containment board for it because average members here can’t stomach it, that’s quite something.
No hair loop AND no thigh highs!? She’s even more useless than Aqua!

Others who have been contacted, we have not seen the gift posted in the thread - if I do not receive a message back will be marked as no issue. Please post the pictures of the gift as this is a requirement!

If you haven't received an email but there is an issue with your gift, please email Santa!
