i respect the hobby but personally think its creepy

Me too. Something disconcerting about looking at cute anime girl costumes and knowing it's probably a creepy man inside, staring at you. Still pretty cool, I would be a creepy man inside the costume from time to time if no one was around.

>>
>>20212053
Do a lot of non-Japanese people attend these sorts of events? What is there to do other than look and take photos of kigurumi-san?
>>
>>20212835
There are some attendees from neighboring Asian countries, but majority is local Japanese.

There are some side activities like games, stage performances, meeting mask makers, and mask sales. However, it's mainly an event for super fans...so attendees are either a Kigurumi Photographer super fan or a Kigurumi cosplayer.
>>
>>20212835
There are a loooot of Taiwanese/Chinese kigs that attend. Funnily enough, a lot of the Japanese kigs are jealous of them and of non-Japanese kigs in general. I think it is kind of amusing that you see the opposite happen in the West.

Do elaborate.

The mask should fit my body type better anyways. I’m super slender and my old mask looked real weird from the side. Plus, I can actually see out of the eyes, was never a fan of slits.

Thank you!!
>>
>>20252840
Japanese makers tend to be better on average. Of course I don't know what "local" is for you, and there are certainly good makers outside of Japan. But a lot of people who want to order from Japanese makers, due to misconceptions or language barriers, think that they cannot.

At the end of the day, it's your judgment on the maker you go with, and it's worth considering factors like cost, future maintenance, and relationship with the maker in addition to purely the aesthetics and attributes of the masks they make. Some makers have gotten involved in controversies, so its worth doing some research on their customer feedback and history too.

By virtue of being a mask, kig heads tend to be very large. So being tall can actually help with proportions.
As long as you're not a fatass it can make you look slimmer than you actually are.
>>
>>20260698
>>20262108
Dang, not bad at all.
I guess the worst case scenario is you looking like a slightly older version of the character.
Still looks cute though, even if there's an indication of the person being pretty tall.
>>
>>20206201
This is the worst thing about it. I found out about kigu by accident two months ago. Now I have budget and save money to buy mask and cute outfits.

The 2B mask is based off a 3D print, so the sculpting should be near perfect to the game model.

What's approximate female to male ratio in kigurumi?
>>
>>20270729
As I understand it most stage performers are female.
As for hobbyists it's usually dudes who wear these.

Every 10 performers is 5 female, 4 male, 1 apache helicopter

>>
>>20278113
Think anon means the people in my YT comments.
And sadly I don't think so, I honestly think people are just that clueless
>>
>>20270729
In all seriousness, since we're probably talking about hobbyists here and not stage performers, take a look at this graph.

女性 = Female
男性 = Male

The data is only one year old, and while the Japanese community is probably slightly more male-dominated than the community as a whole, it's more or less the same story everywhere.
>>
>>20279208
The writer(s) of those "annoying comments" are not what you call "clueless" when the same phrased question appears every time exactly word for word with the exact same follow-up reply in every thread.
>>
>>20279208
Ah, and yeah i agree in the case of kiddos asking how to get started, although tbf the people who constantly beg for face reveals might be malicious...
>>
>>20281748
I'd agree, but it isn't the same person, nor is it the exact same words. I really don't get the feeling of getting trolled lol
>>20281835
Such as the guy who actively threatened me with doxxing me and bashing my head in should I not do a face reveal?
>>
>>20283308
lol wtf
>>
>>20283308
I don't think we are talking about the same thing. I'm specifically referring to a "specific phrase" that gets asked and repeated in almost every thread. A pattern like that is trolling. Fortunately, I haven't seen that show up much anymore, since people are just ignoring it, or the poster(s) has moved on to Discord for their kicks.
>>
>>20286519
Are you actually this mad about "wait isn't it usually dudes who wear these?"

>>20249940

It's not what I call "mad". It's what I call trolling or wasting board space. Take your pick.

In case anybody knows, how does one transport a mask overseas? If I had one, I'd be nervous as hell letting airport staff handle it. Don't know if it's safe to bring it with you in the cabin either.

My biggest concern is the size of it. Judging from what I've seen, the smallest dimension of a mask is around 9 inches/23 cm. Most airlines only allow carry-on luggage with the smallest dimension being around 9 inches/23 cm. You could probably get away with the size limit by carrying it in a cloth bag, but that pretty much guarantees it to some sort of damage. All the cool performers I've seen always carry them around in cases like these, which most likely won't be allowed for carry-on.

For anybody who has ordered and wears a hadatai, should you measure yourself while wearing all the padding and shape-wear you'll be wearing underneath it? My gut is telling me that it's the sensible option, but the manufacturer (Ayame in this case) says on their measurement guide that you should measure yourself without any padding on. What should I do?

You should still measure yourself with padding that you plan to wear underneath.
But not breast inserts because those have their own little pocket.
>>20343723
If you are with your friends, it's super cool to do things together :)
At some point you stop caring what the normal people think and (at least here) most people find it interesting anyway
>>
>>20352372
So just hip + butt padding? I don't plan on wearing anything for my waist, so I don't have to worry about that. I'm not sure how much Ayame's hadatai can stretch, so I don't want to risk getting one that fits me without any padding, but doesn't fit with padding on.

Thanks for the help. What does one usually wear underneath padding? How many layers of stockings/spats do you need to wear over the padding to smooth it out?

When it comes to breast forms, what size should I get if I'm aiming for a certain bust size? For example, if my actual circumference is 85cm and I want a 90cm over bust, what sort of form should I get?

Not original anon but is there a good general guide to hip/butt padding for someone whos never done this type of thing before?
