The only thing I wish for next year is working escalators or at least a solid stairway to the upper levels and for the schedule to be printed in a way that doesn't require a magnifying glass.
>>
>>10040605
>working escalators
Won't happen. They aren't made to have the load of a convention of this size. They were probably working the Thursday of the con but then broke. Conspiracy theory reason: the building staff blocked it off on purpose

>schedule to be printed in a way that doesn't require a magnifying glass
The staff drag their feet so fucking hard that the schedule is a shitshow. Bigger cons can have schedules out online literally months in advance, in comparison.

Want to change any of this? Too bad. Con staff is walled off to close friends and not actual trained professionals.

How does a con get this size and not act like a business...

I did? I've been pretty active since the con ended and was during the entirety of the con as well, running my job and the jobs of two other staffers who couldn't make it. Any particular reason for this very specific call-out?

>I chose polyester because it reflected the light
maybe you're drawn to it, but overly shiny fabric is going to make a garment look cheap, 100% of the time.

Butterick B6267 frankly, looks terrible as a pattern, and was poorly researched. It might be fine as a fantasy costume but you should not think of it as folkwear or historically accurate in any way.

>>10050201
>I don't know why you assume I pick my fabric at Joann (didn't know what it was until I googled it, I get my fabric at my canadian version, Fabricville)
Anon just assumed you were from the US. Think of Joann as a cross between Michaels and Fabricland/ville, they sell craft supplies and fabrics. They're pretty much the same thing.

If you ever decide to graduate to a proper yukata, here is a site with the best instructions I've found thus far: http://www-personal.umich.edu/~weyrbrat/Japan/yukata/ Pick a nice cotton fabric for it.

Anyway, good effort, and keep sewing and learning.

>>10052098
Depends on the size of the stains and the patterns on the kimono. One with a more even and smaller sized pattern like a komon kimono could be made into a cute bag.
>>
>>10052109
Aaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhh

You know that a website knows what theyr are talking about when you see the handmade CSS like that! Thanks a lot, anon!

And for your sake, no way I was planning to make this kimono with the idea it was historically accurate or a proper traditional one. Fantasy costume it the right term. You know, I bought a kind of dressing gown that was labelled as «kimono». The appelation is out of control...
>>
>>10035755
I showed my Japanese bf and not even he could say for sure, but he thinks it might be a stylistic rendering of 教 (teach, faith). It looks really pretty though!
>>
>>10052243
>You know, I bought a kind of dressing gown that was labelled as «kimono»
Ah, yeah that's a thing. They also call those summer shawl/cardigan things kimono or a kimono jacket sometimes, although obviously, it does not qualify as kimono, the Japanese folkwear, but a new and different thing entirely.

And you're very welcome~

Are you a troll or did you fail grade three reading comprehension?
nayrt
The person you replied to is saying that they're sick of people ragging on unchangeable or irrelevant traits. Why would someone complain about or critique someone for something they can't change? Why are you concerned about how someone is irl when this thread is for judging outfits? There are cringey dweebs who dress well, their personality might be ita, but they don't get posted here. So there's no good reason to talk about personalities in the ita thread.

Just talk about outfits, please. Or take your weird claims to amino.

I planned to put it everything up for auction in January, but definitely willing to put the OP up sooner if that's more convienient for all of you?
The soonest I can put it up for auction is either this tuesday or wednesday.
It would be a 7 day auction (the shortest they offer) on LM and I decided to sell the OP as a set with the headbow & handbag, just like >>10052552 suggested.
PostNL usually ships quickly but sadly can't guarantee it will arrive in time for Christmas. This time of year usually has shipping delays.

I've emailed santa to try and get in touch, but whoever is putting together the present for me (6248), I'd like to arrange for shipping my present later to ensure that the parcel doesn't bounce at my post office while I'm away for the holidays. it's fine if you've already sent it (I'll sort something out), but if you haven't, I'd really appreciate if you held off for a little longer!

New thread here!

gulls, as if being an uggo wasn't enough, I feel cucked by my glasses/severe myopia.

I am literally blind without them (cannot walk around without them) and I cannot wear contact lenses or any eyes lenses at all (so no different eye colours sparkly lenses either).

This means my glasses always get in the way of cosplays and outfits in general. to me it simply feels like it's ruining it.
I mean, take any picture of a character/coord, then photoshop frames onto it.
It's just not the same thing, you know?

anyone share that feel?
any tips?

>inb4 just buy different pairs of glasses that match
if i had heaps of cash to spend for each pair that i might never use ever again, sure

Drawin's theory just means that these disabilities never stopped your ancestors from reproducing before they died (eaten by tigers). Ergo, these traits were never selected out. Take that as a beacon of hope for you.

lol yeah it ‘dirties’ them but you can literally just wipe them off on your shirt. op your problem here is not glasses but crippling self-consciousness and anxiety. your only choice here is to forcibly stop giving a fuck*

Fellow glassesanon here, I feel you deeply. My prescription's not as bad as yours (-5.75) but my eyes are still pretty damn awful. I remember being sad on Halloweens as a kid because I wanted to go as characters that didn't wear glasses or couldn't think of bespectacled characters I wanted to portray, and even to this day it still kind of follows me.
But - it's been my experience that nobody really cares. Even when I had more obvious black frames with Transitions lenses that were constantly tilted nobody said anything. Heck, I even got COMPLIMENTED once - I was cosplaying an older character and they thought the glasses added to their worldliness.

There are a few things I do to mitigate it. I wear glasses with clear frames that are less noticeable. I also have prescription sunglasses that open up a few more opportunities. When I'm getting photographed I sometimes tuck them into my back pants pocket or inner jacket pocket. But I mostly just don't sweat it.

Have you looked into buying glasses online? Glasses shops around me charge anywhere from $125 to upwards of $200 for a single pair, but online I can get 'em for around $40. Sure they're lower-quality, but I don't wear them daily so I don't care. Picking up more subtle frames is a good stopgap if you can't/won't do contacts.

I feel you so much anon. walking around without glasses is really a huge danger for me, I often don't see steps causing lots of falls. I literally cannot do it.
and just to add to the uggo factor, i also have horrendous teeth. been waiting forever to get braces but even then that'll just be another factor to make me feel self conscious.

Funnily enough, the only person to ever be offended by me accidentally misgendering/deadnaming somebody was my own sister who has made a habit of surrounding herself almost exclusively with LGBT folks, despite being none of those herself.

You’re completely right anon. Thank you. I am recently finding it much more easy to be confident in toned down styles than full fledged OTT sweet lolita fashion. I feel cuter and more at home in my own toned down style though I appreciate the way lolita fashion looks on other people. I feel much happier and less anxious to go out of my house now. I feel like the whole “wear whatever the hell you want Bc fuck society XD!!!” Thing doesn’t really apply to everyone. And that’s okay! I think people should just wear whatever they feel comfortable wearing.

You also see a lot of people cosplaying at walmart/resteraunts etc when a con is happening nearby.
