How do you go about matching colors? My wardrobe is mainly red and somehow none of the main pieces are the same shade and I don't want to buy same headdress 10 times in slightly different shades. Is it impossible to have a cohesive wardrobe in lolita? Do you have one, and if so how, or do you always go for full sets?

For red you just need to watch your undertones. Blue-reds look best with other blue-reds, even if they're not the same shade. But to me at least, I find and orange red and blue red together can be 'off'.
This might help https://colorsupplyyy.com/app/
Imo exact color matching isn't super important in any fashion. The gripe about colors not matching is more that the colors have different tones like >>10125370 said.
For example, if your dress has burgundy roses on the print and you wear a burgundy bow that's slightly darker, you'd be fine since no one expects you to have the exact Pantone match for the burgundy. If you wore the same dress with a bright apple red, then it would look off since the color is so different.
I think it starts to look bad when people are too caught up in color matching and symmetry. Especially when the sacrifice silhouette of pieces for the sake of color.
I just order what I like and pray.

First time /cgl/ poster here, so sorry if there is already a thread for this I'm missing.

I need some help finding something for a costume, I was thinking of making a Harry Warden costume, the bad guy from My Bloody Valentine, as was wondering if any of you knew what kind of gasmask the guy wears (pic related) and where to get one.

I know it's a bit early for Halloween, but it's never too early to start planning really. Maybe this could be used as a general Halloween thread, besides answering my question, so it's not a totally wasted thread.
sorry can't help you with that. But can you tell where to find working gas masks ? The big canister never seems to be functional
Working as in they will protect you from hazards or working as in they are easy to breath through?

You can find new NATO standard (and surprisingly Russia complies with this standard, I think it's for international aid reasons or something) 40mm screws for masks and filters, from most surplus stores, or hardware stores sell them too if you just want dust protection, or some industrial use filters.
Ebay and Etsy are also surprisingly not bad places to look, reputable sellers will list the year the filter is manufactured in and if it has been opened or not, and other such important details.

They're going to be hard to breath through out of the nature of being filters, you have to breath through the filter material, it will never feel like you're just breathing normal air, the airflow has to be restricted.
If you want one that is easier to breath through just for cosplay purposes I'd reccomend just gutting a filter out of all it's actual filter parts so you just have the metal shell and nothing to restrict your breathing any further than that.

You can also replace the sausage with goat cheese, it's very simple yet delicious

If you are a cheese glutton like i am, i would also recommend you those italian mozzarella croquettes! It's longer to do but so yummy
They're going to bars and cafes that serve cannabis infused food/drink

Comic Convention & Entertainment Expo is coming up! March 22nd-24th @ the McCormick Place in Chicago, IL. A solid 50% of the con is anime / vidya / pop culture, and has an awesome cosplay scene!

Discord server for C2E2, general midwest cons, and other related discussion : https://discord.gg/MpMpdqf
I know the con is big but it’s dead to the gulls
I’m going for the first time but only because my friends wanted to check it out. My expectations are pretty low.

Is the shopping any good?
Nope, saving to go to ACen , a real anime con with related guests
I miss the McCormick place, very tempting to go.

getting my cosplay ready for la conve, last one was a way better experience than the cons before it since there was a change in management, hope the quality of the con stays decent

Alternate thread title: "How often do you wear lolita?"

Inspired by the mess that happened in the "Trends you hate" thread, lets discuss how we balance adult life with lolita fashion, how often we wear it, tips and advice to living a more "lolita" life, etc

>What style(s) do you primarily wear?
>How often do you wear lolita?
>What is your job?
>How many main pieces do you have?
>Do you attend meets or cons?
>What other style(s) do you wear besides Lolita, if any?
>What do you wear at home?
>What makes someone a true lolita, in your mind?

That's just embarrassing then, and your parents should have aborted you.
LoTV is terrible. Especially her bodices and jsk straps are so wonky. There are a lot of better handmade but I guess you are right about them not posting often.
I bet you were drooling all over my coords when they were posted though. I bet you'll also be next time. Anonymous boards imiright
I don't like handmade poorfag garbage, so I doubt it.
Sure Jan

Ive never used shipping services before, but I'm not buying something huge like a dress. What's the best shipping service for items like this look book, or just AP jewlery?
You could have just asked the SS thread instead of shitting up the catalog with a new thread stupid cunt.
Thanks! I didnt know there was a ss thread.
I would recommend ZenMarket. They're kind of slow when it comes to buying items but that's not a huge problem if you're buying something that's not going to sell out fast. They only charge a 300 yen fee per item and have a wide variety of shipping options.

Is there any hope for a 5'9"/175 cm woman to wear a kimono?
It's been discussed briefly here before, but you still have some options.

The most important thing is for a kimono to fit all the way around, so it can close properly. Recently it's been fashionable to wear kimono with funky heels/socks or boots, so you would wear the bottom hem a little higher to show off your footwear. If the kimono is too short you can do this. You can also go hunting for longer kimono as they do exist, even if they are more rare.

Lastly if it's just yukata you can get one commissioned or do it yourself, drafted to your height. Aside from attaching the collar it is pretty simple as it's just a bunch of rectangles.

this should suit fine; it's the most warm tone out of the three so it should be most flattering.
Thank you very much. I know boots have historical precedent & am happy to learn it's in style again.

oh..Japanese Ninja...

Is Anime Matsuri worth going to? I've never been there before. How big is the con compared to other ones?

Awesome, just bought my Anime Matsuri pass.
Holy shit 100 dollars? fuck that.

Honestly? I was thinking about going to Anime Matsuri. And now because of this guy I was almost against it, but then I saw all the facts that the poster of the thread was making! It was clear as day that there's just a hate campaign going on to discredit Anime Matsuri!
Actually, no, that's not how this works and one single person defending it like their life is at stake makes it like the creepy guy that says good morning on facebook daily despite never getting a response. I actually WAS planning on going, but it's clear that I'd have to be around the people like OP, who have honestly demonstrated that 'its my way or the highway' is the only intention that they have. Facts? No, I will dispute those facts. Figures? No, that never happened, they're wrong. Complex reasons for why x is at y? They LOVE it, absolutely, that's why they come back! I still go back to my job daily, do I love it? Not 100%. If there is a dumpster on fire and I have free space, that dumpster is getting booked.

More importantly, I think the OP is missing something. I lurk, I mainly post a single sentence. Yet here I am writing a fucking page of garbage. Honestly they aren't even worth this page, but flat out this is the reason why people fucking hate AM if nothing else. The ONE TRUE TEXAS CON REE is honestly unsettling and even if all the other cons in Texas burn to the fucking ground, I'd look at AM and then go fucking cosplay at TRF before I'd spend a dollar at Anime Matsuri. I was AM's intended consumer, as I don't give a shit about politics regarding this, but in the end -

AM is the equivalent of those fucking youtube Ads. You wish you could just shove adblock on, because you keep hearing the same ad over and over and you learn to hate it because of the fake smiles going on behind it.

So congrats. Really, con-fucking-grats.
Ahh this thread.
OP says AM is flush with cash, yet AM has been sued by at least one vendor every year for non-payment.
OP doesn't mention that the City of Houston loans AM money and gives them the sweetest of deals on renting out the convention center in order to have a big event the city can brag about.
OP doesn't mention that AM has NEVER rented out the entire convention center.
OP doesn't mention that AM uses turnstyle counting to get their attendance numbers while the rest of the cons in the US use badges sold. So, a one day pass at Katsu counts as one attendee, but so does a three day pass.
AM's actual badge numbers don't even put them in the top 5 for cons in the US.

Budgeting, /cgl/ edition.

When do you guys start saving up and How much do you guys leave aside necessary stuff con wise (hotel room money, food, plane/car travel fare, money for dealers hall)?

Hungry and thirsty anon.

Last year at Sakcon I spent about about a thousand total on travel, food and merch. Having clear plans on buying what I want helped lower merch expenses. But the main dealbreaker is out of con entertainment like the arcade (which seems to get worse year after year) and CCF or whatever restaurants the trendy weebs gather at when they want something other than fast food or Cheesecake Factory.
Man that takes me back
>weeb crew and I go for a dinner ramen run without thinking about that plan
>"90 minute wait", line out the door
>end up well-fed and shitfaced at a mexican place two minutes away
Really hoping for some more spontaneous good times this year.
How’s that even possible?
