Is it normal to have a “People of Color” photoshoot? I know half of photoshoots these days are non-anime, non-Japanese game related but really.

You deserve this because you didn’t make the con atmosphere so toxic that these types would be driven off.

This was my first con. If it was small, I'd hate to go to a large one. I could hardly walk at times.

Shop in Wonderland is dying and DM is leaving Lolita. Guess the Leighs are finally losing money and AM is out the door soon too.

Depends on when they broke the sewing machine. They might not have had time. I know in a pinch before I’ve used iron on hem tape to finish a skirt because my sewing machine broke a needle.

Sorry for the bump, but anyone going to the flagstaff con from here?

>>10316313
Was that the panel where the crowd began heckling the dude for being creepy shit? it was hilarious, Yeah his "random selection" of barely legal girls at each panel was so blatant it was beyond me.

its the fact her legs are smooth, but a little bit of hair is poking out that is unsettling

What kind of wig would you even get for this character?

I typically struggle with these types of cuts as nothing seems to fit. Lace fronts have the widows peak look while other wigs usually have bangs or are "too poofy" to fit.

My regular hair is nowhere close to this.

So far all the kaitos just use their normal hair

What's so bad about treating lolita as cosplay? I remember how people were insisting on this definition back then to make others treat fashion seriously, but look at it now. Lolita is not a subculture anymore and people are not expected to compliment their frilly clothes with fitting hobbies. So why is it so wrong to consider lolita as some sort of event wear?

I'm trying to cosplay Bjorn from Vinland Saga but I don't know what to do for his boots. Should I try making them or just order something similar online? I have a little bit of basic sewing experience but I've never made whole shoes before.

If you need to know my foot size is 11.5, but in some cases 12 might be a more comfortable fit.

The dress and skirt are both a nice soft thick material. They both seem like they'll be nice for the winter with a pair of tights underneath!

No photos on hand yet, but I got my IW LP, the 50k one.

The LP dress itself is fine, good casual everyday dress, but it's veeery long. I'm 5'1" and it's tea length on me. Kind of bugs me that the seam lines are right down the center/center sides of the dress too, but it's a LP dress so oh well. The sleeves and lace are cuter than I expected. The socks are cute too, no complaints.

The rest of the pack pretty much wasn't my style at all, I got 2 of the Snow Fairy print in differing cuts/colorways, Princess Cat in Pink, and that gorgeous jacquard swallowtail jacket from last year but in a purpley-navy colorway that won't really go with anything else I own. Struggling to find a reason to keep it...

If anyone would like to trade any of their IW LP items I might be interested, I'm in the US.

I'd like to ask where non-Japanese artists like Omocat, punimelt etc stand on this? Would printed pieces work for fairy-kei? I'm particularly interested in exploring yellow/green pastels which I don't see often, and I've seen some interesting prints by western artists.

I say this out of love--stick with jp brands until you have a good grasp on the fashion, THEN experiment. Western accessories are fine but most western main pieces look garish imo

That actually is zoomer logic and I’m a little worried for them once they hit 25. Appropriate behavior seems like a math equation where how old someone is determines the whether it’s okay, rather than it being a matter of common decency and boundaries. They are going to get to the “gross pedo” age and still like the same things they did at 21 and have a complete mental breakdown.
>>
>>10318605
Why do you keep making the same thread? Are you experiencing a quarter or midlife crisis OP? If you making good money then enjoy the fact that you don't have to split a room with 6 other weebs and sustain yourself with coffeepot ramen and dealer room pocky like you did when you were in your teens and early 20s.

Now you can afford a con room to yourself, afford to eat at a sit down restaurant and splurge in the dealers room if you want to.

I'm 35 make $75K a year and still go to cons. Just finished up with Magfest and I'm getting ready for Katsucon next month.

So much this. There's so much pure obsession among the younger crowd with acceptability based on age, whether it's re: dating, hobbies, or just interacting with other human beings. It's kind of sad and lacks nuance.

There's a ton of threads about bad photoshops, photog drama and the like. But let's try to do something constructive. Let's discuss something simple, what do YOU think is a good cosplay photograph? If you're going to pay money for a photoshoot, what exactly are you looking for in the finished product? Also, post photos of what you consider as examples of good cosplay photos.

Go to Reddit, just be warned a lot of the critiques are by armchair photographers who ready a book or watched a video on Youtube and suddenly think they know what they are talking about
>>
>>10322758

It's not a cosplay board. We're talking about cosplay photography here

>>10323232

> I don't understand the "cosplay photography" thread

That’s how dumb you sound.
>>
>>10323236
This is a cosplay board, not a photography board. You aren’t gonna get the critique you’re looking for here. /p/ is for photography so when you post a photo there, people critique the actual photo and editing. /cgl/ is for cosplay and j-fashion so when you post a photo here people are more likely to critique the person in the photo rather than the photo itself.

You talked about people bringing drama out of nowhere, but this is exactly how it happens. People post cosplayers and lolitas on here as vendetta all the time and even if it’s not vendetta, the board is associated with drama, so a lot of people don’t want their photos on here no matter the context. Meanwhile if it’s posted specifically on /p/, your intentions look a lot more clear and innocent.

This just isn’t the place for that and no matter how hard you try there will always be some kind of drama because when it comes down to it, people just don’t want to be posted on /cgl/. Meanwhile on /p/, every cosplay photography thread I’ve seen has been received positively and had great feedback. Beethy even came out of the shadows and joined the last one that I saw

I know some lolitas will block people who aren’t lolitas themselves, so it might be something like that. Do you have any pictures of yourself up? They might think you’re a creeper.

>>10321224
My account is still all blank, but I intend to upload some pics once I feel more confident in my coording skills (I'm a beginner). So if that's a requirement for them, I guess it can't be helped.

On another note I can maybe see now how I would come off as suspicious. I liked a couple of older posts (1 year+) when I was looking for inspiration, and if I remember correctly that's something people are quite wary of?
