People talk a lot about how they wish lolita had better separate events from anime conventions.

What is your ideal? Would you want events like Rufflecon, actual conventions, or would you prefer tea parties like they do in China and Japan?

We have the problem in the US where travel is a lot harder due to its size so that makes it harder for the one day events.

If you could create a perfect large scale lolita event, what would it be?

Ooh if you're lucky, you could possibly rent out a Victorian house on Airbnb. I know some historical home societies often host mystery dinner events, but a whole house for lolita guests only would be dope

Yeah Witches' Follies is their next event. It seems like they are trying to make something different this year with the get a way concept. The witch theme in October and the castle sounds fun but I'm really just waiting for more information so I can decide if it's worth it.

its a cosplay story but someone traded my high quality 2B cosplay for this DVA cosplay. it looked great in pictures but she took those when she got it.
she sent me this sweaty, never washed, period stained, probably shit stained too, makeup covered, torn ass gloves body suit.
she purposely didn't tell me any of this until i sent my cosplay out and until she sent hers out. she literally said, "oh btw the body suit actually looks like shit lmao"
she also used some filter to make her wig look brown because she sent a red wig.in which she said, "oh btw its actually red not brown and its tangled to hell lol im sure u can fix it"

that was my last cosplay trade

"Friday, Saturday latest!"
>Sent on the 19th, a Thursday
>OP asks the 24th, the TUESDAY after if there was a ship
>"Oh not yet, Friday/Saturday!"
>OP politely says she was confused by the wording, because seller's wording implied the same week

OP, please post more of the chat so we can see the "fit" you threw according to totally-not-seller-defending-herself chan. Cause the chat log doesn't look like there's any issues between you two at all. I feel like there's another part of the story being omitted.

Her sales post was on the 13th and stated she had a vacation the next weekend, so I thought she'd be gone for the 20th-22nd and be back by Monday or Tuesday the 24th. When I contacted her on the 24th and she said she'd ship Friday/Saturday I guessed the drive was longer than I assumed and she was still on the road home. Even if she was home and didn't have time to ship out yet that would've been fine too, I'm not unreasonable and understand delays. That's the last of the messages, I tried to message her again on the 2nd and she had me blocked. I immediately filed a claim and messaged the LM and sales group mods because why would she ship out after blocking me? If she didn't block me and was just ignoring me, I wouldn't have gone to paypal.

I don't know why she did that. My best guess was that she wanted extra money for her trip but payday was later, so she decided to scam somebody instead. Her sales post also said she MAY not be able to ship out before she gets back not that she wouldn't be able to at all. Regardless that doesn't even matter and I don't know why she's focusing on it, the point is that I messaged her once asking about shipping, then checked in a couple days after her projected ship date and she had me blocked

I've ordered from Odakaya's online shop before - you need a re-mail or shopping service, since they don't ship internationally, but their velvet flowers seem to be the same as the ones VM and other brands use: https://shopping.okadaya.co.jp/shop/c/c1072/

OP is a completely healthy body weight. Supermodels are photoshopped to look fuller bodied in the right places and so you can't see their bones sticking out of their joints. Most of them look like skeletons when they're wearing bikinis. Don't use them as a standard.

'Sup, /cgl/. I'm going to be doing foreign study in Japan from March 18th until about August 1st. I'm interested in going to as many cosplay conventions as I can within that time period, since I've always wanted to interact with the Japanese cosplay community a lot more from the few encounters I've had at American cons. I think I know most of the basic idiosyncrasies, like
>No wearing the cosplay to the convention
>Changing rooms required
>There may be a cosplaying fee
et cetera, but I guess I'm wondering if there's other less-known things I should be aware of and try to plan for/accommodate.
Also, suggestions for conventions would be great as well. I know AnimeJapan is happening for 4 days in late March, so if anyone's been there I'd really like some firsthand advice on how to get the most out of it. Other than that, most of the events I seem to be finding are right at the end of July and beginning of August (Summer WonFes, Jul. 27th; World Cosplay Summit, Jul. 28th-Aug. 5th, all the way down in Nagoya; Summer Comiket, Aug. 10-12). Does anyone know of any other conventions in between AnimeJapan and that big cluster at the end of the summer, or in lieu of that any other good places to go cosplay for fun and meet people?
And sorry for writing a book about this. Feel free to just talk about Japanese conventions in general too.

actually, there was an area outside the Cosplay Changing Room and then directly outside was the parking lot where they had their pictures taken. in both areas, people were meeting up and talking with each other.
>>
>>10133815
I was there too, and in cosplay. I only ended up talking to two new people on the days I was there - Everyone else, when I'd compliment their cosplay or try to start any sort of conversation about it/the series they were from/etc, just seemed to kind of nod or answer briefly and go about their own business. My Japanese isn't bad, so maybe I was doing something else wrong.

There were maybe two people who I saw pull it off well and match their skin color, but for everyone else who tried it it was very visible and not good-looking.
>>
>>10133810
Sometimes the tape is to pull the skin tighter on the face, sometimes it is used to disguise stray hairs. When you do a shoot, it gets photoshopped out.

I'm talking about the groups of people standing or sitting together on the floor, talking with each other

these people were using blue painters tape. it looked really bad.
>>10133876
they were just doing casual pics inside, they weren't doing them outside where the shoots were. there were 3 shoot areas but they weren't standing there, they were just cosplaying.

If you're looking to do some armor, maybe Cordelia from FE? You could do Caeldori if you want a little less armor to do lol

>>10112832
Agreeing with anon's Madotsuki suggestion, check it out. It's a pretty simple cosplay but very recognizable, and the game's a treat. I also think you'd make a great Emma from The Promised Neverland.

I dig the Theon suggestion, get a couple people to do a small group with you and I think it'd be real cool.

I keep getting people saying Narancia and more and more I'm leaning towards him as much as I love Jotaro too...

I have considered commissioning but I imagine that will be a price through the roof.

P. S. Your face is the best for Katsushika Hokusai and Kurisu Makise. I love it. You have the right aura.

Lelouch from Code Geass would be a great pick for you, and if you're interested you could do a great Kyoya Ootori from Ouran High School Host Club.

Inspired by the Honey Cake debate that happened in the CoF thread, I thought I would bring back the "who wore it better?" threads. I think they're a great way to compare coordinates across prints or cuts and get inspiration on how to wear certain prints.

Be nice, don't be aggro, don't vendetta post, lets just have fun with this.

I remember looking at them in passing and wondering what anime had sailors in it until I saw the fire sword and recognized the color schemes.

You'll need to know if it's a natural or synthetic fabric (different dyes for different fabrics). At a general look, I'd say get a fabric that's a medium/dusty blue in color, crumple it up (don't do the recommended presoaking), and drop it in a brownish dyebath without stirring. You'll get the uneven color splotches that way.
