Just in planning for my first cosplay, for sydney madfest.
Wondering if anyone had exact details and/ or experience on their weapons policy. I found their terms on the site but its not 100% clear.
"hard props" (made of metal, glass and fibreglass) is one not allowed. This doesn't mention wood, so i could i make a sword out of wood and be OK?
I have been to the previous two melbourne madfest and certainly feel like people had 'hard' props (as well as many over 1m which is also not allowed). So are the rules somewhat lenient and as long as you dont seem to be acting like a retard they'll be chill with you?

Also anyone been to both melbourne and sydney madfests? which have you liked more?
>>
>>10324092
I've seen props bigger than 1mtr but it depends on the venue. I know icc can be kinda twitchy about it. And most of the time they need to be stored anyways

Give me your best bad cosplay makeup finds! I'll start off with some of my favourites.

i have hoarded many photos of jfashionistas that i think have artistic value beyond the usual coord shot or selfie. i would like to share some. they will include all kinds of Japanese alternative fashion, and subjects may be any age or gender; and they will NOT be images from publications such as KERA, Fruits, etc.; so i hope there will be good inspiration for a variety of seagulls.

this is a continuation of 4 prior threads, which reached the image cap:

>>10284337
>>10293441
>>10300707
>>10305464

the last thread featured some portraits that are taken near graffiti, wherein the text and images of street art help connect alternative fashion with its roots as "street style"; portraits that try to capture or suggest movement, or time passing; using images of shopping or collections/hoards to connect alternative fashion with its material aspects; portraits that occlude part of the subject; black and white portraits; and portraits that show expressive faces without much editorial smoothing.

now, i would like to begin this thread with some portraits that have a disorienting effect. the composition or editing of these photos are purposefully unnatural, uncanny, or hyper-real.

O! Thank you very much
>>
>>10324133
It looked like it was just on the cardboard image. I had thought it might be in the cardboard box costumes because last time I got a lucky pack I got a Snow White dress from a costume box and it smelled so heavily of mold that I had to throw it away and several others had stains.

There's not bags or anything inside of the costume boxes and I have no idea who the hell thought that up because the costumes often have stains or mold or just smell awful.

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...

Let’s here about your projects, gulls.

It’s not unheard of to use fabric of different weight and opacity for a top, like for an opaque body but sheer sleeves and neckline. AP does this a lot with cutsews. So it can definitely be done but you need to make sure that the fabrics look good together. I wouldn’t pair matte poplin with shiny satin, for instance.

Any of you guys used this pattern before?
>>
>>10324188
Other than some pretty old school stuff, I’d sat it’s much more common for for most things to have a seam at the waist and a gathered skirt. This pattern could be done well, but there are probably better choices for lolita.
>>
>>10314490
Get it taken in by a seamstress. If you decide to sell later, there will probably be someone who appreciates the smaller size
>>
>>10324604
You can have the seamstress leave in the excess fabric at the seams, it's slightly less clean of a result but it means the alterations can be taken out later.

didn't see one. i'm looking to sell this

Well, desu they make up tutorial always was crappy and repetitive but at least you was able to grasp an idea.

Now it looks like they are beginning not to give a F about non-japanese whatchers, I mean look at these Japanese characters (I can't even read video names) and some of their videos don't have eng subs.

Quick question regarding the IW sale. It’s been a while since I’ve ordered directly from them myself, but my shopping service was closed for new year. I put in an order for a sale item on the very first day, and didn’t hear back until the 14th, once IW opened again after a long weekend. The item went out of stock in the size I had put in the order for, but added in a comment saying I’d be happy with the other size as an alternative, which is still in stock. When I got the email from them last Tuesday, they said to please wait for an invoice while we check other stock on the ordered item, as it was out of stock in the online store stock, this might take a few days. Now it’s been nearly a week, and I’ve still heard nothing. Is this sort of waiting length typical these days? At this point would it be best to drop IW another email to check, or to just give up and go through my shopping service? I did email IW as a reply to the email I got last week to confirm I’m happy to accept the other size of the item as an alternative in case of the one I’d put the order in for was sold out.

>>10324679
Hi, I got the same email on Tuesday. They usually take a really long time to invoice during sales anyway, but if they’re confirming stock it would take even longer. My out of stock item is socks so I assume they’re checking all the branches to find a pair. I certainly wouldn’t worry about it yet! I’ve waited over a week to be invoiced during a sale when all the items were in stock. If I get my invoice I’ll post about it so you know!

When a desperate guy talks to me, I can’t help but think that all they want is a gf for the status, and I could be replaced with another healthy weight and good hygiene gal. Like geez, it’s as if you just like the idea of me and don’t actually see (or even seek to see) who I am as a person. Not exactly what I want in a relationship. Not to mention that it feels weird to be treated as some unicorn and creates a huge disconnect.

I have mixed feelings on it cause if the original work they do is really amatuer sounding, it just makes the idols look even more cringey and unable to be taken seriously and leaves them way more open to harsh criticism. I do appreciate the contribution to more original content, but if it's particularly bad, it could hurt more than help.
>>
>>10324195
I think there's a charm in seeing the effort that goes into it. If it's genuinely not a great song, I probably won't give it multiple listens, but some of the music the overseas idol community has made is genuinely catchy and on my regular playlists. It's endearing in a way! And honestly, even the bad songs are a way for people to gain the confidence and experience to keep growing. It's only when a group is consistently bad with every song they put out and shows no sign of growth then it becomes cringy.
>>
>>10324195
woops, double posting here, but I also think mixing covers with original music is a good idea. It kinda comes down to the fanart vs. original art thing, where people want to see and hear stuff they already know. Groups that only put out original music seem to have a much harder time getting noticed than groups that mix in covers.
>>
Quebec Idol Festival (at G-Anime) turned out amazing! IceQream, TwinScoop, Julily, 12Shine, etc all did incredible vocal covers of songs. There were a few love live cosplay idols but they were vastly outnumbered by some real talent this time around. I was pleasantly surprised by the effort in coordination and costumes. I'll try and post coverage as soon as I find an upload.

Sage for no /real/ contribution. If anyone else was there and has any video of it please post it. First time seeing a good idol showcase in Canada.
>>
>>10324195

Higher quality covers is a starter. Not just in dance but also finding good sets or rental rooms to covers in. I am sure photography studios may have artificial backgrounds someone can do covers in
