/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.

The people running it are veterans from other established cons.

Not sure what topic related you meant, maybe “ Fate” related?
>>
Went for the day. For a first year con it seemed pretty good. Lines were organized, signage was clear, there were some interesting panels and the artist alley had great selection of artists.

As someone who wasn't particularily interested in the guests, the price was high for what you get. It was weird that they were selling "iff" merch and that they had so much of it. They shouldn't host panels in the dealer's room without a microphone for the audience to ask questions.

Overall, I would like to see it grow and give AN some competition but if they are going to be money-grabbing with upgraded passes, high cost day passes and additional cost events (concert) they really need to make the event worth the price.
>>
>>10153534
Yeah, a big focus on Fate. It kind of reminds me of Kupocon. I didn’t think the badge prices were bad, though there were certainly quite a variety of tiers.
>>
>>10153093
He seems to have the most fun though. I've seen him before lining up for im@s events and such at aninorth I believe? Pretty chill guy to talk to if it's who i think it is. He's the asian guy who joins the other dudes synchro dancing with light sticks, right?


>>10153586
Half of the IFF merch are leftovers from IFF Osaka 2018 at a fairly decent price imo.

I'm very curious why some anons here complain about the lack of vendor variety when most vendors suck anyway, and don't really add much value compared to buying online or shopping at your local stores.

Gf and I have a reverse height difference.
She's like 5'10 and I'm 5'5. Makes cosplaying, though we are working on maybe going to a con as Alice and the Mad Hatter. Might do it a samurai fusion type of thing.

It's hard to find stuff that works.

Ugh. This guy. I've heard both good and bad (Mostly bad) about him. His postings on Social media is always bitching / being insecure... and his whole unfollow thing is just abit childish to me? Idk.
>>
>>10153401
Totally agreed, I get weird vibes from him so he squicks me out real bad, but I know he’s at least pleasant irl, at least when you just kind of run into him, I’ve never hung out with him or anything. He has a superiority complex that just makes him seem like he thinks he’s more popular than he is, though.
>>
>>10153620

That's basically the same vibe I've got from him... "Holier than thou" attitude. He's /ok/ for the most part, but he isn't someone I'd recommend befriending unless you want it for the "popularity" or drama. He was also kind of... trash talking a friend of mine who was also cosplaying 9s from NieR Automata. So that kind of did it in for me.

I had a lot of fun this these past two days and it was kind of in a crazy way.

I met a group of great people online to hangout with on a discord. I had no idea so many people at the con were likee awkwardly alone lol. Like they either:

*went alone
*friend went home early / lost them or w/e
*didnt want to go to the same events as their group

Made so much legit friends, like we are probably gonna go to future cons together. Really inspired me to work on cosplays too.

Like I felt so much at ease when talking to this cosplayers this yr too, probably cause I had the balls to meet people online.

For next year, what are good places to meet people / potential for cons? And what were your favorite things this year?

it's just. not good content. nothing to discuss or build upon when it's just images that anyone's who's been on here/into lolita for more than a year has already seen.

but I suppose this is mostly the vendetta trash talking thread so maybe I'm being optimistic about the level of discussion on offer

I just need to tell someone or else I will not be able to rest easy.

I'm a guy and like Fire emblem and a while back I was interested in going to a con. Pick one and hooray! I'm going with friends. In my brain I think going as Edelgard is a excellent idea. Buy waist trainers, wig, and makeup to make myself look like a anime female aristocrat. Cosplay takes months and someone better then me ends up doing almost all the sewing. The cosplay looks good.My makeup makes me look different, not like a female.

Con rolls around. Have a good time. Go to Fire Emblem meet.Witness a proposal. Am very happy. After the con I go to find my bus stop to go home. On the street some poor guy asks for change. I think back to earlier when i didn't give a poor person money and they yelled at me. Feel bad and open bag and get wallet and dump all my spare coin change in his bucket. He reaches inside my bag and asks me where i'm going. Confused, I pull away and then he pulls up some other guy and says hell escort me. He said "He'll be a bodyguard" but the man kept asking if I was a girl. I am getting frightened and fear what will happen if they find out if I'm a guy. Third man appears and asks whats happening and where I'm going. The only reason they didn't make a move on me was probably because other people were there. Gods gift in the form of a crossing sign alighting gives me the importunity to speed walk the fastest I can in heels away.

After wandering a bit I spot my bus. I give chase since there are no stops nearby. I realize the bus is heading in the direction those three men were. Whisper screaming to the bus"TAKE ME"

Thank you to anyone who sat through that.

>>10153624
It creeps me out that the "escort/bodyguard" kept repeating if I was a girl or not. If your a escort/bodyguard why should the sex of the person your escorting/protecting matter?!?

I meant like, she's like a pretty, fashionable girl who looks normal ahahah. but it's charming. You know how coords sometimes come off as "i dressed my normie friend up in lolita"???? this is like the antithesis of that

god /cgl/ is so fucking annoying with it's incessant spouting of buzzwords like newfag and such. I've been here far too long and the change is quite apparent, seeing threads crapped up with autistic rants and one word responses like "cringe" to normal board culture stuff. the overcompensation is obvious.

I have the album sitting here. Track 11 guest musician is ユッコ ミラー

I think this was return to form for Opera. I’ve listened to it through over 100 times since I bought it on release. It really is a great album! I’m going to the anniversary live and the tour finale in two weeks. Pretty excited. I don’t go to major band’s shows very often. Well except Opera lol.

Anyone going to this today/this weekend?

I haven't gone in 5 years, any idea why they're back at the Sheraton instead of downtown? Feels like a downgrade and that they got kicked out or something similar.
>>
The Sheraton/embassy combo is the best place for it. Downtown sucked
>>
>>10153043
Hard disagree. At least downtown you could park fairly close and not walk up a hill everytime, have more food options, and the dealers room isnt split into 2 awkward rooms. The sheraton is way too small for this.
And thats not even getting into how dumb splitting the event into 2 seperate hotels is.

I'll give a lot of leeway to everything else posted but these just stood out to me, how can anyone think this is a casual outfit? Casual should mean the outfit is easy to put together and put on, accessible for daily wear. The lolita equivalent of jeans and a T-shirt. Split colour wigs, 4 headbows and face gems are so far from casual ya'll need your eyes checked.
