Korean women almost always wear that kind of bright red lipstick.
Genuinely shocked at how many girls here are overweight. I guess Koreans don't have those naturally skinny genes that Japanese and Chinese girls do? You rarely see overweight lolitas in those comms...

If you like the look, I'd say go ahead
What's a good pattern to start with when making lolita stuff? I've made garments before, so I don't think I need to start with a small bag or something since I know I can make that. I've just got no clue where would be a good start for jsks.
I've used this with a square skirt:
One of the Otome no Sewing books. Get actual lolita patterns and adjust them to fit. There are scans online so you can look to see which one has the most patterns you'll use.
I forgot the blog with the instructions on how to translate the OnS patterns, anybody remember ?

One thing I noticed about cons is that while panels are well attended it seems like no one really talks about them over social media unless it's related to a guest. I've been in panels that fill up to the brim and in large rooms but it's like they never existed in the post con discussion.

Do you think it's possible to get well known as a panel presenter? And are there any well known panels in the con circuit? The only thing I can think of is Zapp Brannigans Spaceship Of Love

>Not entirely, but fan panels are a lot more diverse and interesting than industry panels.

I think you might be in the minority in this. Notice how people flock to, talk about, share and post about industry vs fan panels. People want interviews, they want statements, announcements, QA.

The fact that people can not NAME a well known fan panel says a lot.
And there' always that one person at VA Q&As who makes me roll my eyes.
"Hey, uh, well, like, my mom says I am good at doing voices and I watch some animu and cartoons, and, like, it looks like fun, so, uh, how do I become a voice actor so I can make money doing voices?"
I’ll watch a few and see how they are but for me, US fan panels that I have seen are mostly really cringe and the people putting them on usually have little to no presentation skills. So they usually are boring, awkward and uncomfortable. Which is a shame. But that has been my experience.
fan panels are wildly inconsistent, as far as quality goes, but they can be insanely fun, especially when you get some late night content
that being said, micah solusod does a guest pictionary panel that fucking rules
I think the inconsistency is the biggest issue. Really good fan panels are out there but the average con goer has now idea what panels those are

Uhh why not?? Its cosplay, you be who you want, skin color doesn't matter!!
there's plenty of dark skinned characters, and you can cosplay as light skinned characters too (unless your skin is absolute pitch black like sudanese people, in which case your cosplay will look really weird)

just don't be fat lol

Lolita, if you grew up with it and now you're an adult and still love it - how old is TOO old to continue? Is there an age? At what point does it start to look and feel cringy? Is there a collective opinion about adult and older women who go out in public in full ensemble? Just an outsider who's curious.

I just took the plunge and turned the skirt of the last sweet OP in my wardrobe into a crib skirt.
Jesus Christ she barely looks half her age
KERA gave her a lot of courtesy shoop. She looks amazing for 80 but not quite that wrinkle free.
Ok, she still looks great but at least she looks real in this pic.
Oh boy, this again. I thought people throwing around 'ageplay' to label shit finally realized they are the worst kind of secondhand embarrassment and stopped.

Anyone at nekocon? How is it?
It was okay, nothing special I guess. I was there for Saturday only though. Concert was nice. I'd say the con is worth it if you're in the area, but not worth a longer trip from Helsinki or Tampere.
Not from Finn but ran into a Snufkin cosplay which I thought was pretty cool.
It’s not like Moomins are really popular everywhere right now
Anyone going to NärCon?

I'm not sure if this is the place for this but my buddy is trying to write his own fantasy LARP and I think he's putting too much work into the crunch of the game. Like his draft rule book is some 100 pages of rules.

How do I very politely tell him that he's putting way too much effort into this? I see more and more people moving to rules-light games. I just feel like he's setting himself up for disappointment.

This is the place, dont worry.

I'm the least tactful when it comes to these things, but I would call him up and address the issue head on. When people look for a new campaign to go to, a heavy rule set can be deterring, either because people dont want to invest themselves to learn everything, or that they get the impression that the organizer focuses more on the game system rather than the game itself.

A complex rule book will also attract the bad crowd of mechanics autists. You know those guys complaining on fb about how two-handed weapons should deal double damage and bean bag magic is immersive? Yup, those are the first guys to show up. And at the same time it will make the larp unattractive to older veterans who, like you mentioned, want to keep things simple and avoid complications with ic/ooc rule fighting.

Also people expect a first time campaign to fail if it tries to hard. Your friend better focus on stuff like grander props, plots, quests and perhaps hiring good NPCs?
I know of a campaign that started recently, and the organizer went out of his way to make it as epic and eventful as possible by using EU funding to hire people to act as NPC where it was needed to fill up on vacant factions. Now he got the ball rolling and has started focusing on expanding his campaign, including the rule book.
>How do I very politely tell him that he's putting way too much effort into this?
here is a pro tip: Write your reasoning however strongly you want and at the very end write the words "You fucking retard"
That will take away the edge of your previous sentences
I mean, a 100+ page rulebook is not necessarily bad. I've seen multiple succesful larps have massive rulebooks. If most of it is different skills and abilities, instead of "you need to know ALL the rules", I really don't see what the big issue is.

I'd say: honestly and openly tell him your opinion. If he decides to stick with what he's doing, that's just a difference in creative direction between you two.
>I mean, a 100+ page rulebook is not necessarily bad.
Like, there is a mathematical chance of it not suck, but so far every 100+ pages rulebook I've seen was shit, so the chances aren't that good.

>I've seen multiple succesful larps have massive rulebooks.
successful larp doesn't mean the rulebook is good. Shitton of successful larps have bad or outright idiotic rules.

Hi all. Just here to ask a serious question since Abunai en Viencon is coming and good weather pops up so now and then.

Who are some good dutch photographers who also are nice to work with who shoot outdoors?
im not sure of all of these are actually attending abunai/viencon, but personally I like zerkon photography (although he said he's retreating a bit from the coscom), robin morgan is nice, kevin jeukens, photos by citrus, pharifocus, chastten... Take your pick lol. there are plenty
What happened to M Fashion? They had way more clothes than the current lolita ''shop'' in the Netherlands. So sad.
MFashion had a lot of brand, but owning a shop in the centre of a city also requires you to sell enough of it. With their prices being so high and people being able to get their hands on brand easier/cheaper, they couldn’t make enough to continue with the store. That and the shop owner left the comm because of drama.
It is impossible to run a physical Lolita store in a country like the Netherlands. You would need a full-time job beside it and own the property or rent it for free/cheap. But even then you will never earn enough to make a profit out of it, or to even be able to live out of it without that other full-time job.

Can we have a thread to specifically discuss sewing and needlecraft in the context of j-fash and cosplay? Pattern making, machine discussion, garment construction, embroidery, etc. Other needlecrafts such as crochet, knitting, felting, etc are welcome too.
Question to get us started: Have any of you all bought older, heavier duty machines or invested in an industrial machine? It's been something I've been considering for a while because I like to sew some heavier materials and my machine struggles to keep up sometimes

No. A leather needle is specifically shaped to leave minimal holes in the leather. A denim needle is round.
French curves (the little pieces of plastic with different curves), French curve/hip curve, and clear grid rulers are my main tools for flat patterning/pattern modification. Other useful items that people don't always think of are clear tape, a tracing wheel, and an awl.
Why do you need a double leather needle? Double needles are usually just used to create sturdy but stretchy hems on knit. They can probably be used for trims as well, but the zigzag mess on the back wouldn't look great.
Yes. Fashion-incubator has some decent articles pertaining to this exact subject. I would be pressing from the side of the interfacing though rather than the leather.

She also has fusing maps which may help you.
Anyone made their own lunch bag/cooler tote or other type of insulated pouch? What did you use as the insulated lining? I'm looking at something called "insul-bright" right now

leggings aren’t really tight
It's the only thing keeping me going. Every plucked hair, all the failed attempts with makeup, learning how to have a feminine silhouette all because I want to do my wife justice and not half assed.
Leggings are super comfy, they're stretchy so they won't compress you or anything
so what should i be looking for in sizes since women sizes are different
Check measurement charts against your own measurements
