[Catalog] [Archive]

/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.

Old thread hit image limit >>10281032


This thread is for ouji and aristocrat (aka "boystyle") discussion. "Boystyle" is shorthand for "boystyle lolita" and refers to the masculine counterparts of Japanese lolita and, often, aristocrat fashions. There is a lot of overlap between these styles, and different people use different terms to describe them. We usually just use "ouji" here.

i've had good luck on japanese 2nd hand sites too. not like cc, they're too pricy, but you can get cheap cardigans and staple pieces all the time on mbok and fril.

So the general consensus is that an old school coord must consist of only old items, not just old looking ones, right? Is there some trick on how to spot old school stuff easier (or a keyword on what to search for in japanese)? Especially with blouses I have such hard time telling new and old ones apart, and always checking lolibrary, searching through dozens or hundreds of bad quality pictures of white blouses to see which year it's from is so tiresome. I wish people would add the proper name and release date when selling stuff...

For everything crafts and DIY related! Thread is for things like felting, resin work, jewelry making etc.
For cosplay crafting, artist alley and handmade Lolita clothing use appropriate threads.

What's everyone making?

>So it looks that there is a gap to fill, who is going to step into the shoes of Acon?
The shoes of largest Dutch anime convention? As much as I hate to say it, Heroes Made In Asia.

Community expectations have change significantly over the past few years. The current wave of visitors mostly just wants a place to socialise with their friends, meet-up with members from their fandoms and buy merch. Having (quality) content is no longer a necessity, nor is including it in the initial ticket price. People are simple less willing to spend large sums of money on an event, not unless it offers a truly unique experience. As it stands MIA, being backed by commercial juggernauts that are Heroes and EasyFairs, fits these demands perfectly and will likely wear those shoes in only a few years.

Now the real question here is which conventions will manage to adapt and which will perish by holding onto their financially unviable or ill-thought plans. Place your bets now!
>>
>>10344569
Made in Asia will have it's trouble though if it stays on a date so close to (or even the same as) Dokomi. Many dutch cosplayers visit dokomi on a regular basis and it has become quite the concention behemoth. So I think this might become more in the future.

Apart from that, I think you are right though. Conventions are a place to meet friends and socialise. Who cares about workshops or even guests or cosplay contests? Not the majority of convention goers. And professionally backed conventions tend to run alot smoother than conventions by non-profit organisations who solely rely on volunteers.
>>
>>10344596
Getting rid of that overlapping date could help but I doubt it will pose too much of a problem to MIA. After all, it's not just for cosplay but also those with a general interest in weeb culture. So even if every talented/serious cosplayers visit Dokomi, that still leaves a shitload of "for funzies" cosplayers and general weebs for MIA. There's also that €1000 price for first place in their cosplay contest that is bound to change a few minds and Heroes most likely promoting MIA to ~40,000 geeky visitors at DCC in March. If MIA ends up a success I fully expect Heroes to be going for a year-round program with 2 DCC and 2 MIA edtions. Who knows, maybe we'll finally get a wintercon?

>And professionally backed conventions tend to run alot smoother than conventions by non-profit organisations who solely rely on volunteers.
Agreed. There's only so much one can do in their spare time and it will never add up to what a paid full-time professional can do. Of course that won't stop me from trying...

I think some people are waiting until the hotel room sale will be opened. I also feel that there are some questions surrounding the hotel rooms, so hopefully they will make it known soon.

>Have you considered stripping the routine right back to topical steroids to calm that shit down and layers of humectants/moisturisers + barrier moisturiser?

i've been using a generic of protopic daily since like 2002. however, i shouldnt even be using it that long since prolonged corticosteroid use destroys your skin. but there just isnt any other option, or at least affordable. i'm unfortunately an extreme case. you really dont want to know my daily routine.

>>but if I put on any products, even only a thin layer, I look so oily and I can scratch off the grease/product with my nails.

eczema anon here, have the same thing.

i just deal with being oily because the alternative is painful for me.

>So I feel like none of the products really penetrate my skin, they only sit on top and make me break out. And when I wash everything off, parts of my face are just dry again, so everything was for nothing.

used to have the same feeling but it can take a while (3-6 months) for products to show any effectiveness.
