The fanbase in Buenos Aires can be cringe. I hate whenever they mix geek terms into spanish (“shipear,” “estoy re-hype,” and your usual otaku terms)

Not a lot of actual cringe in person, all things considered. The smell in the game room at jigoku events is fucked, though. I guess it’s worth mentioning a few people I noticed

>this cosplay thot who is the gf of some local youtuber - she posts dumb feminist shit on twitter, and loves to call out dumb perverted males on instagram. Or, well, she used to, it doesn’t look like she does it anymore. Despite having around 45k followers on instagram, her patreon gets less than 10 patrons, almost like she should have realized that many of her followers are perverted males, and pissing them off cost her some beta orbiter bucks.
>this pale fat guy that takes pics of every event he attends. His camera is shit, and he seems oddly fixated on this underage girl, with a few pics that genuinely make me worry. She’s not getting groped but it’s close...also, he took a pic of a cosplay girl’s ass from a distance, clearly without asking. Dude looks like an ogre, so he ruins every pic he is in.

Photography isn't that expensive. I've got a micro 43rds kit and a 120 film kit. That still is from the film kit
depending on what you're working with it is, i'm sure you've seen those photographers that walk around with lighting. the one i'm looking at for myself runs a nice $2000 rip
That is only like the price of 2 lenses
and that’s a little more than 4 months of rent for me lol

Yeah, this is my issue with Zap, which is my middle ground between InkIt and Vograce in terms of pricing. But Zap has this other weird issue sometimes where your outlines become raised/bumpy if your double sided design doesn't PERFECTLY line up.
Zap is just a middleman. Might as well use Vograce.
Zaps charms are made in house as far as I know. It's their enamel pins they are middle men for
Their charms aren't outsourced, they have a printer and laser cutting machine in-house. They're only a middleman for their enamel pins.

I don’t think he’s the best yet, but check out Felix Dandy. He’s a new photographer but he’s already pushing out some amazing photos. Color grading on point and excellent with posing.
A bunch of these are european, at least arthur_sayanoff and dasgeminii are def not from North America

>They then either never post the pictures or only post 1
>Most of the time that one is picture is the one of the pictures I thought were the weakest of the set
Make it stop
Been on both sides of this, as the guilty cosplayer and as the photographer. When I'm picking photos to post, I try to pick things that are different from what's already in my gallery -- different poses, angles, settings. That said, the first few poses I'll bust out during a shoot are probably my default warm-up poses, so if those end up in the better shots from a session, they might not get posted for a while (if at all). As a cosplayer, I know that my favorite shots will be ones where *I* look good or shots that highlight the outfit, but as a photographer, my favorite shots tend to be more technical or composition-focused.

Recent peeves of mine from the photography end:
>hand over edited photos in a really fast turnaround because I got hyped about the shoot
>"omg these look so good thank you anon <3"
>post 1:1 cropped photos after I made deliberate composition choices
>blurry zoom-in on self in a long-shot photo I took to highlight the unique location
>"lighting credit to the sunset! I don't think anon had the time to edit these lol" after I painstakingly edited the saturation and colors to recreate the original mood (and had to correct the brightness/contrast that were fucked up by the near-dusk)
>post photos that were somehow downloaded on their end at a very low quality, so the photo quality is grainy and pixellated
I'd genuinely liked my output from those shoots and was looking forward to doing more, but this was pretty disheartening. Might just avoid shooting those folks in the future.
>post 1:1 cropped photos after I made deliberate composition choices
I mean if this is on insta it's not like they have much of a choice about this. They can only go up to 4:5 and anything horizontal destroys your reach.

I actually think Korean style uniforms suit people who want a more mature look.
Speaking of Korean uniforms, you can rent them now for photos.
I wonder if Japan has similar things for foreigners.

Be fat.
There's nothing sexual about children in a swimsuit.

Same, but it was only the face that read "kid" to me.

As a photographer, How can you photograph this and be okay with yourself? Seems like this photographer has a track record of doing this.

I don't know of a way to convincingly fake it but if it was possible it would be awesome.
You could paint it in trompe-l'oeil but it would only work from one specific angle
How do I make something similar to the the sleeves and pant legs? What this style is called would also help so I can look it up.
Puffed and slashed is what it’s called, also looking up lanskenekt (probably spelled that wrong) historical renactors should give you everything you need.

The keyword that will help you search is landsknecht or "slashed trousers"
Luckily there are tons of historical resources, and the larp thread here can probably provide specific ones that are better than others.

I asked this in the last thread too, but it died before any replies. I'm making the Lumu armor from MHW and wanted tips on patterning or making the neck ruff so that it could have the best 'heart' type shape.

Make sure to watch some videos on how to shape it properly too. A lot of cosplayers have berets that look like trash
Half that shit looks made up. You'll probably have to make a lot of it or buy shit that looks somewhat like it. As far as the weapon goes, it's an M4 with an EOTech and a PEQ-15. The magazine pouches are HSGI Tacos. You can find some airsoft knock offs for a not terrible price.
I made mine by tearing apart a soviet union parachute harness and adding a vietnam replica military belt. I still don't understand why soviet harneses are way more cheaper than vietnam era ones.
Very good- if you’re Midwest US then we could maybe shoot sometime.

Anime Milwaukee in trouble?

Lemonbrat alleges financial manager diverted more than $40,000 in funds, same person in charge of multiple conventions including AMKE and a furry con.

we all nicknamed him GM for a reason.

he always thought it meant "game-master." in fact it means "Ginger Midget."

no offense intended to gingers or midgets.

The event is NOT a victim. Everyone on that board knew and knows what was going on and IS going on. Don't attend this convention. If anything, ghost it. Milwaukee is a shitty city anyway
>this isn't the FIRST time they've been associated with dirty money dealings.
Oh now you have to tell us about that
a top sponsor got cheated out of a deal when a full double page colored ad in the con booklet which was promised them when they agreed to sponsor was in fact used for the media 'designer's own fail-con: all things UK.

amke cheated that sponsor out of a deal which according to most was worth over 1k
Wait. So an ad was supposed to appear in the AMKE con book, but the sponsor was bamboozled and the ad appeared in UK Expo's (or whatever the other con was) book instead?
no, an ad for UK Con replaced the sponsor's ad, much to the sponsor's surprise and chagrin

Old thread hit bump limit >>9891945

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

>ah yes, my gothic coord is almost complete
>I know exactly what it needs
>a beret
the thing is black berets cost 5 bucks and dont have any emblems

Yeah, but not having any logo on your beret is equally as bad as having too much stuff on your beret.
it flows much nicer from top to bottom, i think the black sweater, red shorts, bare knees and black socks create really unflattering horizontal colour blocks that break up the body and make everything seem shorter and chunkier instead of long and sleek
thanks for breaking that down, gull, it is helpful
