Scratch that, how do you deal with parents wanting you to take pictures with their kids?

T'was during a larp, at a public event though, so there were a lot of outsiders. I was costumed as a creepy leper/beggar of sorts, with a face-covering metal mask, bandages and ragged clothing.
Then came a large family who insisted to take a photo with the youngest kid (something like 6 years old?), who seemed afraid of me. They were polite with me, and I tried to reassure him, but it's not easy sounding friendly with a full mask on, and they were laughing at him. He very obviously didn't want it, and it felt like his family was bullying him. Poor little guy.

This thread is for ouji and aristocrat (aka "boystyle") discussion. "Boystyle" is shorthand for "boystyle lolita" and refers to the masculine counterparts of lolita and, often, aristocrat fashions. There is a lot of overlap between these styles, and different people use different terms to describe them. So, consider this a thread for those whose style is on the right half of Buttcape's Lolita Family Triangle: http://www.kawacura.com/moripress/wp-content/uploads/2015/06/0dmmLH6-350x350.jpg

>>
>>10226155
What do you usually go to cons for? It’s not much of a party con. I would say that Otakuthon’s strength lies in its venue (good location for food and cosplay shoots) and its musical guests. I would say that the games room and AA/Dealers are only so-so. I haven’t been to panels in a while so I can’t speak for its quality, though note that Otakuthon is bilingual so if you don’t know French you’ll miss out on some content.

your going for food!
Cosplay photography is pretty good!
younger con people go there to drink and room party.
artist alley is alright. Not the greatest
dealers room has a massage table every year. No idea why. I love it as my back is killing me at the end.

I'm trying to put together my first OTT coordinate and... How much is enough?

I've maxed out my poof, chosen an interesting print, flattered the cut, put on enough things on my head to feel ridiculous, tried to tie some interest to my neck and- no, no matter what I add it just seems like it makes another part of my outfit bare by comparison. Where is the balance when you're over the top?

/cgl/ Idol Spreadsheet (Recently updated, under new management!) - https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1WtgRe5cjKIR0BYGhw9N8ahxChLqEFLbZIRbAazooh-o/edit?usp=sharing

Previously:
-What makes an idol group vs dance cover groups?
-Appealing to a wider audience
-Most attractive idol groups
-Ambiflora performance was a shitshow, people getting fed up with her hold on the OIC(?)

Starter topic: re Ambiflora's performance. Does anyone know if this performance a last-minute decision or if they actually practice for it? It seemed like they had very little practice time beforehand, which is odd considering the article Julily herself posted a few months ago. If your group is asked to perform/planning a live debut, how soon is too short notice? It seems like the failure of a lot of groups, both love live/idol anime cover groups and original idols, is in the lack of behind the scenes planning, or a single person taking over everything and not effectively communicating with their group.

pic semi-related. Stellure always seemed like their dancing lacked refinement and, like Ambiflora, was just Mimi ft. the girls.

Everything went completely over your head huh?

Nobody in this thread should take the majority opinion in this thread as what they should do. Stop acting like a sheep.Every situation is different and people need to adjust their makeup style to that.

If you don’t know anything about stage or theater makeup research it. If you don’t know anything about how to add the right amount of makeup for a high definition camera to capture you than research it.

MANY factors goes into someone looking good while being filmed or on a stage.

It’s ignorant to think if I do ____ because this group does ____ I’ll be successful like them. It’s as dumb as a photographer going “ this photographer won an award with this camera so I’m going to use the same camera” , like no that person probably amazing with composition and editing while having a quality camera helped it wasn’t what made them.

Doing natural makeup isn’t going to take you to the stars if it’s not even properly applied, looks awful on your HD camera because you don’t know how to apply it correctly for film, looks horrifying on stage due to professional lights, and most like crummy because it’s not like anybody in this thread is hiring a professional to do their face.

This groups are adored in these threads because they have quality as a whole.

Something like pic related is cute, but desu I personally don't care what their makeup looks like as long as they perform well. Most netdols don't have access to the same skincare routines as actual celebs and actual on stage makeup of said celebrities is pretty heavy anyway so...

Honestly the makeup look should depend more on the overall vibe of the group/individual member, because even in actual professional groups, each member has their own unique fashion/makeup style. It's what makes them stand out as individuals and attract solo fans.
>>
>>10226046
>instead of their own money
I don’t mind it as long as the money is actually going towards the project. We never know what of their own money they’re already putting in, so unless they don’t have anything that actually costs money (costumes, professional photos, a website, etc), I don’t have an issue. If they haven’t started or are using crowdfunding or Patreon to fund everything then it’s an issue.

I think crowdfunding and Patreon are good if you know how and when to them. Example:
>Patreon for things like websites, new costumes, practice space, travel, etc
>Crowdfunding for things like releases and full productions

Patreon is for sure more work and you need to be sure you can keep up with it. Also make sure you actually have a decent fanbase to actually support you on it. If you’re a small person and don’t have an active community willing to support you monetarily, don’t do it.

>>10226046
I don't mind it at all. One of my favorite (non overseas) idols depends on kickstarters and she's made amazing things with them. (Pls stan Sori she's such a sweet girl I love her sm)
As long as you're honest about everything the money will go into, no hate here.
