this is the best photo that i have of wearing all LL and my favorite outfit, since himekaji is really the only jfash style that i wear.
Hi hi! I truly do enjoy seeing the effort that you artists put into your work. Trying to post something not lolita related for once. If anyone is up for drawing, thank you in advance!

If anyone makes a new LARME thread, could they include the discord invite here >>10045902 ?
Thanks so much for all these, larme magazine meets goth / grungy looks are my absolute favourite - I really hope they don't abandon some of their 'mysterious melancholic girl' take on things in the future.
I think the standards for bloggers etc are just ridiculous, unless you look exceptional you're in for a whole bunch of shit regarding comments etc. You can't just be a normal / average or average-cute looking person any more just sharing a love for something, you're expected to look near-perfect to the point of unreal. It's no wonder people continue to shoop and filter the crap out of all their content.

I appreciate shitty comments are something of an inevitability, and perhaps a thick skin is needed but jeez, it's got outta hand. Bring back it being ok to look unremarkable. As long as you look well enough put together and provide interesting, engaging content then who cares(?).
I can see both sides desu. Fashion always looks best on good looking people, but it's not like plain or ugly people can't have a great sense of style or aesthetics.

>As long as you look well enough put together and provide interesting, engaging content then who cares
Lots of the photoshoots from the magazine, as much as I love them, are kind of dumb. If they weren't done with models that would be immediately apparent. So for me and I hate admitting this because it's really shallow, but someone's content isn't interesting or engaging if they're not pretty enough to carry it off. Of course that only applies if a person's content always includes them.
somebody know this instrumental?

I like "yru" shoes and the kawaii sneakers on ebay.
Those are cute! Do you have any worn pics? Either yourself or someone else? I'm just wondering if they are chunky enough!
Are the kawaii sneakers on Ebay decent quality? I really like them, I've just been hesitant bc idk if they will fall apart after a few wears
They’re not like super chunky. They’re standard converse
I’ve also got these from YRU and if you’re wanting something chunky but not platformed these are another good option

Didn’t see one in the catalogue so let’s do this, questions you have that don’t deserve a whole thread.

Mine is: what hairspray do you use to style your wigs? The wig I’m styling doesn’t need anything intense or gravity defying but I do need it to hold while I go about my day. Also wondering, what is the best way to wash it out? I’m just styling the bangs and hoping to be able to restyle it for later uses. My wig is from Arda if that matters.

You've never cosplayed before, have you?
nayrt but what do you mean?
good one
Would i be more convenient to find a shopping service/proxy to order from this online shop and have it delivered to me or bite the bullet and get a pixiv account and figure out how to get it from japan to my U.S. address? Have you purchased from jp sites like these successfully or know of shopping services that would consider doing it for me even if it wouldn't be a $300+ order? Thanks

I guess they are just nice and easy as guest. They interact with attendees a lot and are super sweet. Brialliant Kingdom makes a good evening program too. Idk I'm not even that great fan of the brand but I just love Babi and Kaie and they make me want to buy something from them everytime.
Yeah, they also definitely love visiting Europe esp old historic sites (according to what they said at a Q&A event). And yeah I agree - I don't like everything 3F puts out but they are really fun to interact with.
They just announced Haenuli as a guest
it's odd that she has been announced later and has lower billing than RoseMarie Seoir, you could argue announcing the other guests first but that one is odd, also a dick move withholding that until after this ticket mess

Thread for cosplay ideas/ techniques that have been stolen or not given proper credit

You can’t steal a style of stitching/ironing or whatever the fuck.Am I stealing someone else’s style of sewing because I did a back stitch? Is it stealing an idea when someone dresses up in Lolita? This is a vendetta thread.
Because right wingers can’t into cosplay so they have to appeal to the “yaaaaas queen slay *gif of black woman sipping tea*”market.
That's a stupid argument, do you comment on people doing "captain canada" type costumes with "you're making your entire existence revolve around being canadian"? People wanting to pay homage to their heritage is only playing on one aspect of their identity, not making their entire identity revolve around it.
I’m not gonna act like wh*teoids don’t do it too,but they always have to make everything about black people.Like black history month even though whites have a better culture or that “black woman smiling” hashtag.They were so offended by the “white woman smiling” hashtag even though it had nothing to do with them.It’s pretty obvious that anyone who makes melanin their selling point has nothing else going for them
>whites have a better culture
haha ok dude bye
She's combing her heritage and a show she loves into a design that honours both, why does that mean she's revolving her existance around being black? Plus, the end product is stunning imo

>whites have better culture
before you sounded bitter and now you just sound like a racist

So i want to make a cosplay and I'd like it to have something similar to this any tips?
Lumeclusters Phoenix gauntlets.
Please use the Help or QTDDTOT threads next time

So, first off, there's a help thread for questions like this. Live and learn.

Second, when it comes to gloves never, ever make it totally from scratch. You'll want to find a glove you can use as a base and build on top of, so that you already know it works as a glove and all you are really doing is changing the cosmetics.

This is your first prop, so I'm going to go out on a limb and say that you probably dont want to jump into LEDs or other glowing options. Its doable but more complicated and you shouldnt bite off more than you can chew on your first project.

For the armored gauntlet itself, you'll want to do it in layers. You see how the gauntlet has a segmented pattern of overlapping sections going towards the elbow? You'll want to do the longest section first in craft foam. Then, you use a much thinner foam sheet to do the second to last segment, then the third to last, working your way forward.

Find something round and plastic you can use, like a clear plastic christmas ornament, and use half of that to do the crystal ball thing on the back of the hand. Paint the inside to give the effect you want.

Use thin craft foam to make talons for the fingers and glue them on.

Before you start anything, though, some basic google searches for cosplay foam armor tutorials will tell you a goldmine of very useful foam armor crafting, sealing, and detailing info. Make sure you watch a bunch of those before you buy any materials.

i'm free but at what cost
I wish the box came in different colors. Pink is a bit restricting.
I'll just do it once or twice. 2000 diamonds later, I'm in the hell of just needing one piece to complete each suit.
I've never broken 50% before, and I don't even like this outfit. Pretty chuffed.

Do you guys use your phones to take pictures or actual cameras and then just upload via an instagram posting application (later, gramblr, whatever)? what phones in your opinion have the best camera?

Eh, I've used mine for four years and it still works great with my DSLR. Unless you're trying to take wildlife photography, a cheap tripod is fine for a phone camera. It honestly sounds like you don't want to change. That's fine too, but it makes your reasoning even more idiosyncratic.
I use my phone and a point and shoot interchangeably. I've found that a point and shoot is better for detail photos and full body shots since it captures details that would be lost on my phone camera otherwise. My camera is also nice because I can transfer the photos from my camera directly to my phone via an app.
As far as phone cameras go, I personally don't particularly like iPhone cameras even though I have one. One of my friends has a Google Pixel and her camera is better than mine imo. I don't think it's worth getting a whole new phone just for the camera though, especially since some new phones can cost as much as/more than a decent beginner camera.
It is, actually!
> what do you guys do about backgrounds?
I take my pictures outside most of the time, trying to match the location to my outfit. It doesn't always work but at least I get nice/okay backgrounds and good light. Public gardens are my favourites, nature makes for a lovely background (but it depends on your look, too).

>Also I see a lot of people posting that they don't like seeing accounts that post more than one type of thing
Aesthetic is the most important thing for instagram. As long as your adhering to a precise aesthetic you will find your niche. It doesn't matter if sometimes you post outfits and other times you post other things, as long as everything looks coherent.

Dream cosplays you've always wanted to do but haven't due to time, money, obscurity!

The cosplay conventions I have been to, one thing that they have in common is "that guy" in a deadpool cosplay being/acting obnoxious. I wanted to know if it's a phenomenon there is presented in other countries than Denmark.

I got punched in the face (I think by accident) by a Deadpool. I think he was so shocked when my nose started bleeding, he didn't do anything for a minute, and then he started pretending like he hurt his hand while my dress got blood drops on it. 10/10 DP cosplay, really stayed in character.
Chilean here. Theres at least 4 deadpools roaming around every big con.
This is from years back at a smaller local con but I distinctly remember a guy got taken away by the cops when he revealed to everyone he got near that the katana he was using was makeshift with a real edge and all because he thought props were lame and he was fucking deadpool.

Ireland here. Only went to one con this year, and the one DP I saw was totally chill. He sat here swinging his legs and chatting to people that approached him. There were plenty of obnoxious spergs, being obnoxious at that con, but not this guy.
It is a worldwide plague.

If we could get all of them and the Harley cosplayers on one shuttle to the sun, we'd have world peace overnight.
I have Dutch friends and they always message each other in English. I don't get it. Why not communicate in your native language?

Don’t see one in the catalogue!

A thread for asking for help tweaking a coordinate or for when you’re not sure what’s not working in an idea you had; maybe you need some pointers on meshing pieces together. This is a thread for when you already have the basic idea of what you’re doing, for simple questions please see the stupid questions thread (old one is full, I’m sure someone will make a new one sometime).

If you're planning to walk a lot, go up half a shoe size and add shoe inserts.

I know some of the newer heels are already padded inside but some of the older models are a bit hard on the inside. They're fine for walking, just not all that comfy.

Hello everyone!

I got the horror garden special set about two years ago now, and though I wear the skirt a bunch I think I've worn the gilet twice? and only ever with this skirt. I really want to wear it on its own but stumped as to how. Any input or ideas would be greatly appreciated!
Layering it on top of a blouse+skirt or JSK is the obvious thing to do with it but I'd try layering it on top of an OP as well, depending on the OPs you have that is. It could look good paired with a printed main piece but solids are a safer bet.
I'm being very vague because I don't know what you have in your wardrobe that might work with it, but they're some ideas nonetheless.

The really obvious answer is to swap out the skirt for another lavender skirt, or lavender x black skirt if you can find one. I'd stick to solids if you're worried about themes clashing with the bat collar. Then you'd be able to wear the same coords as before, maybe with some changes to accommodate the lack of black in the skirt.

You could also try using it like a bustier over an OP or maybe even wear it over a shapeless trapeze dress, but you'd definitely want to keep an eye on the neckline so it doesn't look weird with the gilet's bat collar.

Lastly, you could totally slip it into an ouji/boystyle coord -- black or matching lavender pants (if you can find them), white shirt. Keep the colour theme lavender x black x white and add lavender accessories to your hat or bag to keep the colours balanced throughout.
Thank you both! I really like the over-an-op idea, i just have to find legwear to balance it nicely. The good thing is my wardrobe is all the same color combo and solids except for this one print, so I think I can come up with something. Thanks gulls!
