ITT: Male characters that only girls/women cosplay
193 replies and 36 images omitted. Click here to view.
I'm a guy and I like Hatsune Miku a lot and mainly listen to her songs and I want to do a vocaloid cosplay but the only character I'm familiar with is Miku. Should I crossplay her or attempt to cosplay a male vocaloid even though I won't know much about them?
dude just do it. whats the worst that could happen
>Gackpoid, Fukase, Oliver, Piko or insert any other male Vocaloid
There are other male vocaloids aside from Len and Raito?
that shit doesn't exist.
Google is your fren, fren.

I can’t take the injustice anymore. This isn’t really my story to tell but I’m going to tell it anyway. Epic Cosplay Wigs is an abusive company run by a psychopath for a boss. Epic can’t get away with the absolute bullshit they’ve done. All the past employees who quit litterally won’t speak up because they’re afraid of retribution from the piece of shit that owns the company. This shit has been boiling my blood that I had to at least try to get justice for them. Everything is what multiple ex epic cosplay employees have told me and showed me.

I feel ya. The parties that are around here are either full of edgy kids (like the attitude holland ones) or are like carnaval and have shit music.
I don't mind. There's already enough American influence here.
Miku Expo dates and venues have been announced and there will be one in the Ziggo Dome on the 24th of January!

How were you introduced to cosplay anons, what got you into the hobby? Its always nice to hear the origin stories of how everyone got their start.

Was it your friends showing you, or perhaps seeing an advertisement for a con or cosplay meet? Maybe feeling out of place in normal clothes at a con did it?
>How were you introduced to cosplay anons,
Same time i was getting into the otaku fandom, i would read magazines and see articles about cosplaying

>what got you into the hobby?

Ive been a long time anime fan since late 90s but i didnt start cosplaying until 2016. I only started con going at 2013. Learning about premade cosplay really excited me

>Was it your friends showing you, or perhaps seeing an advertisement for a con or cosplay meet? Maybe feeling out of place in normal clothes at a con did it?

I dont feel out of place wearing normal clothes but i feel jealous looking at other people in cosplay and cons are just a once a year event so why not let down your inhibitions and live out the fantasies.

Its also in part that through out mychildhood/teenage life i neverhad the chance to wear a costume. Halloween was never a thing in the Philippines

>Attended my first con in 2007, a small local con with probably no more than 200 attendees
>Was fascinated by the cosplayers, I always enjoyed dressing up during halloween so cosplaying felt like the next logical step
>Did my first cosplay on 2008, a shitty Matt from Death Note
>Didn't have a wig so I dyed and cut my own hair, also didn't know binding your chest was a thing
>Still had a lot of fun, met more weebs and made friends
>Fueled the interest to cosplay more
>In 2009 met the group of people who would become my best cosplay friends by us cosplaying from the same series and just randomly starting to talk
>Became close with them, having a solid group helped to motivate with choosing more ambitious projects and getting better at cosplay
>Grew out of the overly hyper kawaii weeb phase eventually, became a more chill and less obnoxious adult weeb
>Still cosplaying over ten years later, still best friends with the same group of people, still motivating each other to cosplay even though we have real-life responsibilities like work

>the item was bought for $5-$20 USD less than what they’re asking
They probably just add what they paid for shipping
Are you a scalper? It's normal to read feedback, that's what it's there for. I sometimes look for the previous listings of something I'm buying just to read different descriptions and see pictures in different lighting. I even think it can be interesting to see how a piece "travelled" before it reaches you.

Anon is mad over a $5-20 markup.

I watch the market too, and I too get annoyed about high markups but there are so many of those already and anon is so annoyed over a tiny markup they put those people in their personal burn list? They need a life.
me on the right
There are a few oldfags in my comm who are still in the mindset that brand is very difficult to get and anything with a brand label is highly coveted, so they try to sell these super worn-out, unpopular old pieces for well over retail and then whine about how much the modern lolita community sucks when nobody buys their shit. I’ve been around for as long as they have and even back then, I can’t think of many people who would’ve paid €200 for a badly stained and faded Meta skirt. Especially ones that still regularly pop up on mercari or fril in better condition for like ¥6000 max.

Make a collage of 9 pieces that summarize your style. They can be in your wardrobe or on your wishlist.
is an easy way to make a collage.

Commenting on other lolitas' collages and their style is encouraged!

Did this a few years ago and it was fun, so let's bring it back.

I love the jewel tones!
a little bit, ngl. besides the ties, it's also the shortest thing in my wardrobe by a weirdly significant margin, so i ended up getting a black underskirt just for it too.

i usually whine at my roommate into tying the back for me since she works from home now though so it's not too bad, and otherwise i really love how it looks.
This is my goal with my wardrobe, except for me it's red, black and white. Really beautiful.
I'm glad that I'm not the only person who has a 'buy what I like' approach. I feel like so many people I see on social media have a consistent theme or style or colour palette and I just... don't.

finland thread again.

Got accepted to Nekocon Kuopio artist alley. is this con even worth going to? I know nothing about it.

What cons have you done so far this year? What do you have planned?

I was fine with the time slots. A later time for cosplay competition meant I could chill and eat in peace, see a few friends during the "prime hours" of the con and not have to hurry to watch the competition.
However, I do agree that the AMV-competitions take weird pride in themselves. Is anyone actually even interested in AMV-competitions? Apart from the 10-20 people who actively make AMVs and their friends? I'm pretty sure most people just come to see them because they need something to kill the time.
I fully agree on the idea that the later time almost are the 'prime hours' and in that sense doesn't make a difference for an avarage con visitor - however, deciding factor for the new time slot was AMV people demanding the prime time (because they 'earned' it, as ridicilous that might sounds). In addition, the cosplayers who compete have complete different schelude than AMV people in the competition day, wearing the costume and judging included. It's not the matter who earns what time slot, but what the actual needs are. And let's be honest, as you said, who the hell cares AMVs apart the circle jerk that makes the videos and awards their buddies every single year with 20 different prize categories.
>deciding factor for the new time slot was AMV people demanding the prime time (because they 'earned' it, as ridicilous that might sounds)
Source on this? I don't think Tracon would have a lot of trouble just telling them to fuck off and that the WCS and NCC preliminaries pull in the most people so if the AMV crowd doesn't want to play ball Tracon doesn't have to bend to their will because they're not going to lose anything of importance.
Although to be fair, a lot of people do seem to pay attention to the AMV contest since it does run out of tickets pretty early in the day. I personally don't really care for it (I've been to them only twice during my 10 years of con going), but it's the perfect program for the "hengaaja ernu" type attendees so I can see why it's relatively popular. What I really don't get is the "AMV sankarin paluu" contest. Were people really interested in seeing old videos again just for the sake of it? It's like having a cosplay contest but all the contestants are just recycling their old costumes and skits that didn't even win the original contest they were in. Is that fun for anyone..?
Does anyone else think Tracon could benefit from selling a few hundred less tickets? If the weather is bad (like it was this time), the whole building is so full of people that it's hard to move around. It doesn't help that there aren't many places to sit, which means people are gonna sit on the floors on corridors and stairwells. I know Tracon sells out fast and would sell out even faster if there were less tickets, but is it really worth it to have everyone packed together like sardines in a can? I would gladly pay a few euros extra if it meant that there would be less people.
They'll sell it full, since people will buy the tickets anyway, uncomfortable or not inside.

What are some good sites to buy high quality lolita dresses goth, Victorian or otherwise? I've checked Fanplusfriend.

Most of the nice stuff is around $250-300 brand new but goes for cheaper secondhand on these >>10256420 sites. Post pics of the dresses she likes and what colors she likes.
Has anyone ordered from bhiner Lolita? Is that an okay reseller or do they mark up really high like devilinspired?
Bhiner Lolita is just a shopping service for Taobao. So you will pay them to purchase it from China, get the package then ship it to you with a service fee.
Taobao. The dresses are around $50-$100
I've gotten the Choir Cats JSK and the Garden of Sirens OP from R-Series. The jsk was great accept for the waist ties. They were made of a different and noticably cheaper fabric, but they are replaceable so it's not so bad. The OP had a chiffon overskirt that's very soft, but there's something about the dress that feels very casual. That's not a bad thing, just something to keep in mind. Their OPs seem to be and designed with a very specific look in mind. They have some really cute prints though.

Funny, I have a ~2011-12 Baby lucky pack set and the quality is great. No loose threads, super even stitching, centred bows, nice thick cotton.
Yeah, I don't get why people say that about Baby. Their textured fabric is gorgeous and feels very luxurious imo
the meta jsks I’ve had were the worst quality of any brand.
most of my favorite pieces are by them. their quality is usually solid.
seconded. all of my meta is garbo
