If I wanted to cosplay Joshua Graham from New Vegas, how would I do something like his the design on his shirt?

I'm no tailor and doing it with something like a fabric marker would look very fake. Any advice?

Let’s assume I’m having this civil chill discussion about lolita fashion with a person who’s not into it. How do I convince them lolita is worth it’s price?

I have some old af meta and a few dresses from some old (now closed) indie Japanese lolita style-brands and let me tell you, when the sun finally gives out and burns the solar system, it will be rocks, cockroaches, and these dresses peacefully floating through space

Who on earth are you guys surrounding yourselves with? I've never had an issue come up with the cost of my lolita clothes. One of my friends has a very ladylike style. Her dresses are from Kate Spade, Ted Baker, Alice + Olivia, and regularly cost as much if not more than my dresses. I have another friend who could probably single handedly keep H&M in business. She was naturally surprised at the cost but never said anything negative, because she is a grown woman who understands that what someone else spends their money on is not her business. Some of my friends spend next to nothing on clothing. Their money goes into what's important to them, maybe something like art, a hobby, home decor. If someone is repeatedly telling you things like "spending that much on x is stupid" you need to drop them from your life. I promise you that'll be the first red flag and just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to other types of toxic behavior from them. You don't need to explain or justify shit.
>>
most people don't respect the real cost or price of anything; people's labor is undervalued. it's why artists and musicians have issues getting paid properly, as do makeup artists, folks who do cosplay commissions, tailoring, etc. is there shit out there that's overpriced and not worth the money? yeah, there is, but lots of people believe anything expensive isn't worth the money no matter what, and don't understand that things can be nuanced. some things are overpriced, but plenty of items are worth their value either in quality, comfort, talent, or all three.
>>
>>10133955
idk why this is such a nice and reassuring image.
>>
>>10133459
Hmm idk, it was a casual talk with 3 of my superiors and they all agreed how well spent that money is. For a moment I thought „Wait? Is this a normal thing to do?“.
It’s not like it bothered me much later on. It amazed me how normal it was to them.

Old one is saging.

I've never seen the music boxes, that's wild. How does that even work? Do they provide fan music or just put in a song already known? Pop sockets is a simple one, maybe more phone cases? It's not experimental but I rarely see custom phone cases in an artist alley.

I don't have a map but there's a local con that seems to love cramming artist tables in a small room where the artists are literally back-to-back, just terrible. I read some artists who vocalized this issue, among other things. So when I saw the same con hosting at a different venue, I emailed them asking if they plan to space out the tables better. The reply I got back was unhelpful and they denied any negative experiences from previous AAs, so I didn't bother applying.

I was talking about the music box toastedonwheat posted on twitter, it's spirited away music. It seems like two acrylic pieces that slot into the top of the music box. They said they have to assemble them, so maybe they have two separate manufacturers, one for the music box and one for the acrylic? I can't figure out how they did it, it looks really cute.

Was looking at a Brother ScanNCut and was wondering if something like that would work for making custom cut stickers at home. Would it even be worth it?

First year and only going Sat + Sun

Venue was a lot smaller than I thought it would be, a friend said they usually held it in May, but decided on March this time around, which sucked cause the areas outside were nice for shooting, but it was cold for some people.

Shooting was actually one of the main reasons why I went.and managed to shoot outside for all my shoots. It was def a bit chilly but it wasn't completely unbearable, especially towards Sat afternoon and Sun.

Probably won't go next year desu as it didn't really seem like there was much to do.

Eiji has a lot of obscure releases, even today, he keeps releasing CD-Rs in very limited quantities that he only sells at live venues and/or sometimes mail-order only. You probably know that he has over 70 CDs released as DENTAKU.
Onigiri de 120pun had 2 CDs, and it included covers of Tama and Karate Bakabon (both nagomu bands), among others.

>Nanairo Shakkuri best/worst song to listen to while on LSD.
Hahahah, great song.
Yeah I liked their new stuff a lot, you can listen to both their "lost and found" EP and "Kafka's Rock/Nietzsche's Pop" full album on Spotify.
Kera also released a jazz album in 2016 called "Brown White and Black" (which includes a cover of Uchoten's "Mississippi", also a Guernica cover, among others). In May, Kera releases a new album, "Landscape". He's been really active on music this past years.
>>10133959
As far as I know Jun never released anything in Nagomu but she was part of the same family of new wave/post-punk bands so yeah, Nagomu gals liked Togawa too. Jun also performed with Uchoten at least once, and shared stage many times. Kera and Jun call each other "Jun-chan" and "Kera-chan" respectively, lol.
Just recently Kera tweeted about Jun because Cou (Uchoten's guitarist) is going to be playing guitar for her, since Bera (old guitarist of nagomu-era Kinniku shoujo-tai, who also played guitar for Jun these past years, passed away recently on a car accident.

Fucking this
Sometimes you just need to swallow your pride and admit something looks bad.
After seeing photos of myself in my first cosplay I was like “wow that looks terrible” and vowed to never put myself through that again. The second cosplay I made looked terrible too so I scrapped all but one part. That was almost 6 years ago and I finally decided to remake that cosplay after finding the one part I kept. The problem is that new cosplayers overestimate their entry level abilities and pick designs that are way too complicated. I’m glad I could admit to myself that something looked bad at the time, so that I can try to make again years later with much more knowledge/skill so I don’t fucking embarrass myself in public

So what's going on with A-Kon?

She comes off as way too emotional and nervous and its annoying the fuck out of me how many times she touches her hair in just the spam of that clip.
Also kinda shit if you were one of the people who she screen capped and didn't even bother to blur the name of. She deserves to have her video downloaded and posted if she doesn't even have the courtesy to blur out names.

This doesn’t even include time for cooking or for going to the washroom or getting dressed or commute. They probably only have a few of hours a day of truly free time left. And time is not the only factor, but energy too? I know all I can manage to do after a long day is drag myself to brush my teeth and then to bed.

>>
>>10134049
Good for a fan. It was kind of a loose retelling and had a weird amount of electronic music.
It was mostly fan pandering with some tourism advertising thrown it. They had a scene where they danced in Harajuku with a bunch of Gothic Lolitas. I have to assume that was not in the Japanese version. It was cute, though!
Overall I really enjoyed it. I would have preferred if they just brought over the last set of musicals though.
I had a premium ticket and you got to high five the main cast after and got a little cheap souvenir fan. It was worth it to sit up front for me.
>>
>>10134049
Much shorter than expected, (exactly an hour then a 15/20 minute encore) but very fun. I thought the ending was the intermission because the ticket said 2 hours. I’ll have to get closer seats next time to take it all in better.
>>
>>10134121
>I would have preferred if they just brought over the last set of musicals though.

I'm assuming they didn't do this because of the logistics and because it was designed to be toured internationally, with minimal dialogue.

When they did that mini-musical at Anime Matsuri it had subtitles in projected in the background, but it was ... maybe 40 minutes long? As opposed to the 2+ hour musicals.

I just want some official subtitled releases or for them to release the LMF sub they had in theaters on DVD, since they insist on doing copyright strikes against the dubious Miss Dream subs which are better than nothing.

One of my local peeps got an used Milklim jacket for $170 from some western seller and even made a Youtube video about it and how they had been looking for it a long time and how rare and expensive said jacket is. Checked Mercari and they get listed pretty often for under 5k yen.
>>
>>10133847
pastel_daydreamz is also kind of the worst. She buys up cheap brand even on depop itself and resells it for double to triple the price. Not all her stuff is overpriced but I happened to catch her scalping a milklim top that she I guess she couldn’t even afford when it went up since she had it put on hold, so I refuse to buy from her.
