/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.

Ok, I don’t want to derail this thread too much so after this I won’t try to argue,
but why be so stuffy? It’s a known fact that Hizaki is a fucking qt, fucking forgive me if I want to make one silly comment about my Hizaki lust. I love his solo stuff, and the bands he’s played in and have a genuine respect for the lad. If I said that to Hizaki in person, yeah it would be rude or creepy, but come the fuck on there’s NOTHING wrong about lusting over that sweet buttered boy hole. I don’t feel an ounce of shame for expressing it.

Is this bait?

Like I'm not even one of those "fat acceptance, everyone is beautiful" types. You don't HAVE to like seeing fat cosplayers. But you need to have the social grace to keep your thoughts to yourself, like >>10172731 said. The fact that you're so obliviously defending yourself screams either bait or autism.

What are your unpopular cosplay opinions? From wigs to makeup to sewing and everything in between.

You should prioritize cosplaying characters you actually somewhat look like. Literally every cosplay I have in the works is a character I already kinda look like, or one where I can conceal my face.

Also, if you have the physique of a fucking sack of potatoes. Don't wear skin tight/borderline lingerie cosplays.

Is this really an unpopular opinion? Huh.
>>
>>10172789
Judging by how many of said sentient sacks of potatoes I saw at ACEN this weekend, apparently.

Do you cosplay with your significant other?
Do you mach cosplays/Lolita ?
What do they think of you cosplaying/Lolita if they don't?

>Your significant other

Post things that annoy you about the current anime/con scene

I'll start:
So many goddamn restrictions these days about what you can/can't cosplay. I understand stuff like "no you can't bring that massive prop into the crowded hall" and "no you can't be naked at this all-ages event", but these days you can barely have a weapon prop of any kind (my local con has banned all guns, even obvious toy guns with orange tips), and cons are banning stuff they find personally offensive all over the place (see the recent Tanya debacle at Anime NYC). It's really starting to suck the creativity out of things.

Hey /cgl/, I'd really like to go to AX this year since I'm 18 and have money of my own but some of my family think that cons aren't a good influence because they read about them online. In particular:

>Lots of underage sex
>Older predatory males
>Rampant hookup culture
>Drugs
>Underage drinking

How common are these things at cons?

>Even if it has to be sought out why does it exist in the first place? This is why cosplay has a reputation as something implicitly sexual and slutty these days.
That's not because it's cosplay, but because you have a lot of people together. Whenever you have a big gathering, people are going to want to party. Normie music festivals and the like are a mess, too.

OP could point this out to their parents (unless it'll make their parents not let them go anywhere at all lol).

And while cosplay can have a bad rap, it does depend on who you ask. Your greasy coworker might think it's all sexy because of Kotaku articles he reads, but your neighbourhood soccer mom might actually remember how her kids wants to dress up for free comic book day and all the fun activities, or all the volunteering cosplayers do for sicks kids, Ronald Mcdonald House, etc. It's not all bad. I would say all the sexy cosplay and Jessica Nigris of the world had a much bigger hand in giving cosplay a "for sex" rap than cons having a party atmosphere. It sucks to have to defend your hobby from normies (I also wear lolita so I get this two-fold) but I honestly love it too much to care.

Yup, horny kids everywhere.
>Older predatory males
Yup, I met some dude at a bar while I was drunk, said he was in his mid 30s and we hung out for a bit afterwards. He was stopping every vaguely attractive female cosplayer we passed for a photo, ended up ditching him later.
>Rampant hookup culture
Probably, although I got con plague at ACEN and wasn't really looking for anything.
>Drugs
Fucking duh, there are raves at like all these things.
>Underage drinking
Again duh, cons are basically giant parties.

I'm actually pretty decent looking but I get super bad social anxiety. At these cons I have to drown it out with alcohol in order to function. So the problem is I can only actually approach any of these girls if I'm hammered, but by that point I'm barely intelligible.

Feels kinda bad too, I was chatting with some girl cosplaying a gem from Land of the Lustrous, pretty cute and entertaining to talk too. But my drunk ass forgot to get her number and I wandered off and lost her by accident.

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

Mine arrived!
Theyre about what I expected size wise
to be honest. (Mine are 225)
I got the ones with spike studs because they were both the only ones in pink and the only ones close to my size.
Theyre much less hot pink than I was expecting, but im repainting them anyway.
Im likely going to weave a white ribbon where the holes from the spikes were.
