I actually do buy secondhand moitie but sometimes it doesn't fit me. And when I ended up trying to sell some things I had to take a loss compared to what I paid from Japanese sellers and relist several times even at the cheap prices
He’s old news, he sold Bodyline last year so he is long gone and has left us all behind.

It's actually my plan in the near future to get a yellow vespa and design it after Haruko's and live a perfect fooly cooly life
Have you priced that Vespa lately?
>Spending $10,000 on a cosplay prop
I actually was going to get a 50cc primavera since i'm v small and paint it yellow and add all the stickers and stuff. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Besides it wouldn't just be a prop, I'd actually use it.

Hello dearest anons of the /cgl/ comunity, I would like to ask you if anyone has some tips on how to make masks/this particular mask which I need for my cosplay; also the gauntlets/blade parts of said gauntlets especially since I have yet to think a way to make em so they aren't flimsy and won't spin around/be loose while they are ither extended or retracted along the arm.
I don't have any experience with making masks/working foam/other materials to make things like armor or masks so I would like to ask if anyone had any idea on how to make em or how to make this particular one (as well as things like visibility, breething room, extra parts and the sort)
I'll wait for a rapid response from the gentle anons around here and feel free to ask questions reguarding my person or the cosplay itself

Which wig would work best for this style? I was thinking of getting an arda wig since it guarantees good quality, but they have so many styles and colours to choose from, I get lost.
You'll need a 40in wig with bangs (can be shown as side swept or down, it'll work either way). When spiking, just make sure to thin out the excess hair to keep it light and able to defy gravity. Here's three options at three different price points.

I wanna get ino LARPing where do I start?
The /larp/ general >>10056884

The /larp/ general is a good start. In general, the first step is just to decide what LARP you're going to attend. Check facebook to try and find any local LARPs, or at least a general LARPer page that has locals and ask there. Your costume and the costuming standards, the rules, what you can play, all that shit is gonna vary from game to game. So the first step is picking a game, and that's gonna be determined by where you live and how far you're willing to drive.
Drop location in the LARP thread, and here as well. Something as vague as a state or country will suffice.

Has anyone ever seen any fur material with >40% stretch, other than the NFT stuff that no one can afford?
Most I've found is 40% 1-way stretch and it's just short of what I need for socks.

>wrap legs in plastic wrap
>cover with duct tape to the height of the socks you want
>draw a seam down the back with sharpie (helps to have another person do this)
>cut the duct tape+plastic wrap mold off of you
>make additional cuts as needed to get the pieces to lay flat
>add seam allowance
>use as pattern
These two items claim to have stretch, although their stretch isn't specified.
You could sew elastic in it
I have limited skill, doing that without fucking up is fairly demanding.

how new are you?
I actually want to know deets. Can you take it to the farm so mods don’t get ban-happy? I think other people are curious too.
The only people who would call clueless_case influential would be people who knew her and would have heard her talk about how hr wig was an inspiration for Maki's art.
She was iconic in the mid 2000s anon
Take it to the farm for what? It’s obvious previous poster was full of shit and is just trying to stir the pot, bad bait mate.

We haven't had a thread in a while. Let's discuss our Comms for 2019.

Are you hoping for your Comm to be more active this year?
What events are you planning for your Comm this year?
Are you planning to move to another Comm this year?
Have you finally decided to just do private meetups from now on?

>Are you hoping for your Comm to be more active this year?
i hope for new members that are nice and for current members to chill tf out.
>What events are you planning for your Comm this year?
currently planning a late new years meet and a hopefully bigger valentine's meet
>Are you planning to move to another Comm this year?
just moved to this one so not anytime soon
>Have you finally decided to just do private meetups from now on?
maybe if we get a few more decent girls... if its just me and someone else its not really a meet is it
If they aren't that active then why are you so assblasted? That you have to see an ita for one or two meets a year? Just ignore them holy shit
lmao at the niggita
Are you hoping for your Comm to be more active this year?
What events are you planning for your Comm this year? I'm not planning any; the comm isn't too active and neither are our mods. Plus there's a lot of drama desu.
Are you planning to move to another Comm this year? Nope.
Have you finally decided to just do private meetups from now on? Yes. This is quite common in my comm anyways.
Go to a few meets and see for yourself. If someone tries to drag you into drama you can play dumb, be noncommittal or just straight up tell them you’re not interested in petty drama depending on what you’re most comfortable with. Most likely it’s not nearly as bad as people online made it seem. I used to think my local comm was super dramatic and full of elitist bullies but once I got actively involved it became clear that practically everything was coming from a single unhinged vendetta-chan who got banned for harassing people and then kept up this bizarre grudge against the comm for years afterwards, sockpuppeting entire conversations, stalking profiles and pretending to be certain comm members/mods while posting here. Most comms won’t have it this bad but just keep in mind that it’s very easy for a handful of butthurt people to manufacture online drama and keep it going for a long time. Go out and meet your comm IRL before you write them off completely.

I would be hesitant in calling this actual lolita. Not bad, but not exactly lolita.
What you say it is then? I'm not trying to sound mean or anything. I'm just curious so I don't make the same mistake.
Its an Aristocratic Military Coord you fucking numpty.
I thought they were trans.

I really loved the old, silly, "amateur" cosplays, they were fun. The new ones, commercial, boring and souless ACCURATE ones are shit and I can't see how anyone could care for them.
This is so true. Honestly, fuck Instagram desu.
Also, I've found this gem:

Might be worthless for everyone here, but that was my first con. That video is one of the few proofs that this con ever happened. lol
There was a lot more anime cosplay than now.

> Performance was a much bigger aspect of it.
This. I'm the only person among my cosplay circle who went to cons pre 2010's and there's always this disconnect between dressing as a character and acting as a character. They all hated it when I wanted to sit in on a masquerade. Sucks because I've had some skits I wanted to do for a few years but I know I'll never have people who want to do them.

I saw an older Otakon video of a madoka doing a live band performance and its so rare to find that kind of experience now.

Anyway, some mid-late 2000's memories include
>Caramelldansen, Hare Hare Yukai, and the lucky star dance
>glomping hazards
>Kingdom Hearts 2 was still fresh and it was the top of everyone's cosplay lists
>Naruto was basically homestuck and were called Narutards
>that one couple who walked around with the guy in cat ears, a tight black tank top, a pair of trip pants if he were a rich man, and a spiked collar with a chain his chubby girlfriend was proudly holding
>cat/fox ear hats at every artist alley booth
>people actually giving a shit about the amv contest
>there would be one booth that would be a mix of overpriced low quality milanoo dresses and steampunk

SFE was a small group of lolitas that organise big events in Europe once a year, each year in a different country (with help of the local comm of that country). They have a different organisation now so we don't know exactly what it is, if it will stay in Germany or if this is their last event ever.. We'll have to wait and see. There were actually a ton of Dutch lolitas at UtS.
Not the year before, but a few years prior we had UtS. Before that we even had the Kawaii Weekend, but only the first Kawaii Weekend was a kind of success.
As someone "lgbt" i hate having to associate with those people. They try so hard to appear uwu cute and quirky and they have the personality of a moldy cracker so being "so gay/trans/... xD" is their only "thing" so to speak so they shove it down everyone's throat.
They piss me off and give us "real" lgbt folks a bad name

I apologize in advance if this type of thread isn't allowed but I'm looking for help finding a east coast convention. My friend and I plan on going to one sometime late january to late march, I wanted to go to cosplay as a JoJo character and he likes to take pictures of cosplayers, the only problem is I prefer more anime centered cons and he prefers more western centered cons with cosplayers from things like game of thrones, star wars, or rick and morty etc... I've been looking over a list of cons for a couple of days but I want to know if any of you have any personal recommendations for something that might be between the line of anime/video game and western cosplay. I would normally recommend Magfest to him but his schedule doesn't allow him going that early in the month.
Try Zenkaikon. It's in March this year and bills itself as "anime and sci-fi," so East and West are represented in everything fairly equally. The only drawbacks to Zenkai are that it's on the smaller side and the programming is solidly meh, but I've had a good time there, so I think it's worth a shot.
Kami-con would be absolutely perfect. Great con, area, convention center, etc. Its my favorite southeast convention and i've been to 10+ unique cons.
Thanks for the suggestions! I will be sure to check them out.
three days late but anime boston is pretty fun. mad crowded though.
Right now, MAGfest is going on at the National Harbor. Big arcade, tabletop, concert hall, marketplace. Some anime stuff
