/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.

What's your comm doing this year for meets?

I'm a gothic Lolita and I would love to go to goth events instead of normie bars but because I don't care about music I don't know where/when they are. I love dancing though. You could introduce people in your comm to those places but you sound like you look down on the gothic lolitas in your comm so I'm not sure they would want to go you.
There are multiple gothposters anon.
Where on Earth did you get that? Anon/s have already said they asked their comm members if they were interested in the music and they weren't, so why would they drag them to a place where that's the focus?
You sound like a nerve was struck because you weren't "so annoyed" until it was mentioned that people wanted to hang out with, for lack of a better phrase, "real goths".
>until it was mentioned that people wanted to hang out with, for lack of a better phrase, "real goths".
You mean in the beginning of the conversation?
No one said gothic lolitas were fake goths.

What is a good, black, accessible old school blouse/cutsew?
thank you!
That makes my hair look flat and thin but maybe I should give it another try
Try adding in hair pieces? Look up paranda hair pieces that you can braid into your own hair, adding in both volume and length if you want. The Morgan Donner’s Sewing Party guide to Italian hair and braids is really good for this.

Most people don't entirely base their morals on what isn't illegal and have an opinion about it
okay, since we’re still talking about replicas what do yall think about non-commercial handmade replicas?
Already a no from me dawg for the replicated printed fabric.
I think non print replicas, or maybe heavily inspired are ok, as long as it’s for yourself .
as long as you're not making a profit from someone elses' stolen art by selling them i have no problem with this.

Most of us went through the Hare Hare Yukai-calypse and masquerades were never the same.
What are some obnoxious recent trends plaguing the cosplay scene? Pic very related.

I mean come on anon you can dream for a super open-minded, feminist, sex (and sex work) positive company, but thinking that everyone there is going to be the exact same is pretty fucking absurd.

It’s not about the interviewer or even the company’s moral judgments, it’s about how they think their target audience will receive you and whether you may damage their reputation. My goal is to become a professor and some 18 year old frat bro stumbling across any lewds or nudes could potentially jeopardize tenure, if the school even gave me a tenure-track job to begin with. Any shit you put on the internet is gonna be floating around when you’re looking for a lifelong career. It’s pretty stupid to potentially jeopardize that so that you can have maybe a couple thousand followers and maybe make a bit more than minimum wage if you’re lucky.
I hate cosplay tiktoks so fucking much. I feel like if they actually did something fun/creative/cute I’d actually enjoy them but 99.9% of them are just cosplayers poorly lip syncing to audio. It’s so bad I can’t even watch the videos all the way through. Seriously does out of sync audio not bother anyone else??

I don’t even have a tiktok account but mutuals keep reposting their tiktoks on Instagram so I can’t even avoid it
I feel like the only people who bother with tiktok are under like 20? People my age never say anything about it and i certainly think it seems like a dumb app too
A few my mutuals who post tiktoks are under 20, but a lot of them are around 22-26

Just wanted to say you're doing the lord's work anon, I've always just wanted to go ham and buy a bunch of lucky packs but can never being myself to do it, so I'm living vicariously through these posts. I'm glad the costume pack was overall better!
This is definitely my biggest splurge but I absolutely get what you mean. I've been living through the people in the fukubukuro thread all this month. There's just something about lucky packs that are so fun.

Oh, is it? I just know her from the eyeball outfit that was so popular.
I'm retarded; "quantity" for the shoes means pairs, right? As in 1 pair and not 1 singular shoe
Yes lol
thank you kind friend

There is going to be a VM plain dress themed tea party at the start of Feb, so look forward to the photos!
I thought of Yoshie's dresses as well, but hers have actual boob cups and nicer tailoring.
I miss their blouses, they rarely do them anymore and when they do they’re very plain or for IW white
Misako wearing an upcoming release

With the amount of ageplay accounts using the 'lolita' tag, and the 'egl' tag being mostly fancy rocks, I felt like it would be a good idea to compile some cute lolita etsy or storenvy accounts! Selfposting is fine, but please post other similar accounts as well, and try to keep relatively good quality. Here are some accounts ive found on etsy.

And that's all for now! I know not all are Etsy or Storenvy shops, but I think all are smaller / indie stores so the feeling is the same. Hope you liked them!
I have a few to share


cute wooden brooches
I dont own anything from her but I admire her skill, talent, and of course, cats

when u sad but also lolita

Mainly wooden brooches again. Stock changes from time to time. Sad I missed out on her fantasy series, really wanted the sword brooch


We haven’t had one of these in a while so I wanted to bring them back. Looking for more gulls to follow on social media, so feel free to self post! No vendetta pls.

Except they didn't stop wearing short length.. moitie long length has always sold out last, even later than skirts
Thank you for the update? Is there also more red? I love the thought of red motie <3
No reds this time, Jewelry are gold and silver, and everything else is the usual black x blue x white colorways.
ah so sad, thank you for your fast response!
Salon anon again.
Seems like the salon is going to change soon? I didn't quite understand the change though. Instead of closing it down in the end of March like it was supposed to, it will now be more driven by Mana himself rather than just a fashion brand operated salon or smth like that.

And the dual badge is $140... Just look at their website. They would fuck themselves over if they let people into both events for $60.
I'm sorry, I didn't realize the confusion was over the price. I thought the confusion was over whether or not you could get a refund. $140 seems reasonable to me, and you could always make a buddy on the other side and swap passes for a little bit.
Nomikai's swap meet was the very last panel of Sunday and it was a joke, lol. I was sad. No advertisements or anything.
That's so bizarre. That's the kind of event people would show up to a con they otherwise wouldn't bother with over. I was just there for the doll stuff so I didn't see how the rest of the con was.
How bad was it? I really wanted to go even though I've had a history of planning to skip it until the last minute when they pull some guest out of their ass at the last minute that makes it worth it for me. Last year they had a bunch of Ace Combat stuff going on, so I had the time of my life since that's been my niche game love forever and got to compete (and win for once), but this year on the schedule there was...nothing. Did Capcom even show up? They and Namco have been the only really big names I've recognized showing up consistently.

I heard this was the last year for South too, but I don't know if that's true or not. Wouldn't be surprised if it was; not once has it even come close to being as good as the one year I went to East.

Not sure how good Dreamhack is, but $80 or whatever for a pass (plus $30 to mail it???) is insane to me for what looks like PAX South II: The Search for Gamer Girl Feet Pics.

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?

I think it's really hypocritical to wear replica bags and shoes while touting how replicas are eeeevil. Brand is more accessible now more than ever but there are still sizing problems for a lot of lolitas and now defunct brands that wouldn't be hurting from replicas. I don't like replicas and think it's a bit tacky but I can somewhat empathise with people who are tempted.
I'm mostly talking about within classic or gothic, though, not actual prints. If it's high quality and not some tacky ass wish dress, I can't really be bothered to care. (I mean as in if someone were to draft and sew something to their size that was a design replica or things like that.)
This but my parents. They're interested to see it but oh boy
Usually when people talk about replicas, they don't mean someone who really likes a Miho Matsuda piece but there's something off (sizing, neckline, fabric, budget) so they go to the fabric store and makes their own to fit them (aka "I made this inspiried by a Miho Matsuda dress"), they talk about giving money to a business who's whole business is literally stealing others work
You think leather shoes don't use plastic and paint lol
If there was a venn diagram of lolitas that talk about kinks at meets and lolitas that hate kinks, it’d be a circle.

Lolitas are also hypocrites that will shit talk alternative lifestyles until they realize a popular lolita participates. Then the ass kissing starts.

What brands work for you? Have any tips?

For reference I am the size 10 anon who said the shoes fit. I own the BTSSB Antique Ribbon shoes and another pair of their tea parties in an LL. Both fit without my toes touching the front/tops of the shoes. I have not tried their boots or other shoes so it may be the shape of tea parties being more forgiving. It could be a fluke of those shoes.

I'm thinking of getting the Sleepy Sheep cardigan because the measurements are high, but I'm not sure if the cut will be all wrong. Is it an ouji shape that wouldn't work with lolita? Or if I fill it out it'll look fine?

For your average short lolita I would say so -- the cardi comes down to the hips so it'll squish the skirt. It really looks like a normie cardigan, so all the problems of wearing a normie cardi with lolita probably apply here.

For a tall girl/someone with long torso, it depends on how tall/long you are, whether the end of the cardi still hits you at your hips or it hits you at your waist. I'm gonna say it's an iffy gamble, though. Seems like it'd be a double headache dealing with dresses with short bodices while also trying to match them with a cardigan with longer bodice.
Completely agree with MMM, I'm only 166cm but their OTK barely go above my knee. From my experience IW and JetJ OTK are about the same length wise but as >>10324856 said JetJ is less forgiving regarding leg width.

was looking for more wardrobe filler with rabbits on
I need a lacefront wine-colored wig. Any tips on how to look for that (search terms, stores, etc)? Any other odd colored lacefront wigs? Pink/magenta is also ok.
I've used mixtures of the dictionary terms.

I'm sure taobao probably isn't the best place for this, but seriously, I didn't want to spend half a kidney's price money on a lacefront I'll only wear every now and then... It really doesn't need to be the bestest quality...
