Bit late, I know, but Happy Halloween https://ift.tt/2RqHEHE
Anybody here going to RINSFES2?
>>20187706i respect the hobby but personally think its creepy
>>20199823Me 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.
It's hard to not think these are fetish pics when those costumes are made of latexalso I have the strangest boner
>>20199896Immersion is key :PAlso, being a (creepy) man inside the costume is pretty cool. Look in the mirror and it's all worth.
>>20201022How about Kigurumi Wasshoi?
>>20200741Kigurumi girls are pure inside and out. There is no porn.
>>20205338>Exposing the business
>>20200741you're doomed, in a short while you will be coming around asking how to get started yourself and before you know it you will have succumbed to this degeneracy like the rest of us

>>20205338as a kid, I didn't know that cartoons were drawings. I thought people got in cartoon costumes. Looks like I was right.
>>20201552Yes, I always attend Kigurumi Wasshoi.
>>20209238How is it? Is it worth going all the way to Kawasaki to see a bunch of kigurumi-san?
>>20210753You already know the answer to that. Oh, and it seems that my presence has been officially requested at RINS FEST, so looks like I'm going after all (^_^;
>>20212053Do 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?
>>20212835There 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.
>>20212835There 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.
Put in my deposit for a new mask. Base is Hikarinaka - Same style but going with a diff expression/hair to avoid Elsa comparisons. I can't wait to be slutty
>>20215537Here's the inspoLockable, follow-me eyes. Just realized I forgot to ask for the water delivery system but shouldn't be far enough along that I can't ask
>>20215537>>20215547I don't know how to feel about these.
>>20219144I don't think it's bad per se. But I have a strong preference for the more anime styled masks.
>>20215537This mask is quite impressive for it's accuracy to the character. I'm curious enough to consider even getting like that myself if possible. Would be cool to get mask a of her sister as well.
>>20219144Do 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.
Anyone else deeply ashamed to be male and into kigurumi?I'm not the only guy here, right?
>>20232919you are, and that makes you a faggot
>>20232919Shit, if any disgusting males did this, I'd quit
>>20198336Love this kig. Post more of her
Everyone is a guy. We are all faggots.
>>20206201I've wanted to get into this stuff since I found out about it when I was 15, never had enough money though.
I've been thinking about it a lot recently, and I've decided that I'm going to get started with kigurumi!
>>20237914Good.You know what you want, or just that you want in?
>>20242963I don't know what kig I want specifically, just that I want a kig, I'm going to think about it and do a lot for research over the next few weeks and then place an order
>>20243367Do you know who you're going to order from?There are a few Japanese makers that people don't realize sell overseas. I could help you order from one of them if you're interested.
>>20243367Whatever you order in the end, please post pics.
>>20213076>>20215296How do you know all of this?>>20237896How old are you now?>>20237914>>20243367Good luck.
>>20244099Thanks a lot anon, is there any reason why I should order from these Japanese makers instead of more local ones? >>20247361Will do>>20249940Thank you!!
>>20252840Japanese 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.
So I was looking through the archives at threads earlier this year and they seemed quite a bit more alive than this thread, what happened?
>>20258645The Discord happened.
Can a tall fuck like me even do kigu stuff?I kind of want to be a loli, but my 6'2 masculine stature probably wouldn't work for the loli character type anyway, right?Can you even go for cute characters being tall and all?What type of character types would work best?
>>20260581By 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>>20262108Dang, 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.
>>20206201This 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.
How come Wyu is suddenly making decent masks?
>>20265462The 2B mask is based off a 3D print, so the sculpting should be near perfect to the game model.
>watching Kigu videos on YouTube>go to comment section>see an obvious kid with a minecraft profile picture asking how he can get started with this stuff>instant flashback to when I was 13 and doing the sameit's a really weird feel.
Someone mentioned a messy blue hair kig last thread.Is this her?
>>20252840The discord that killed the /kcs/ board has a pretty complete list of makers, I'd go through them and see if you like one especially well.https://docs.google.com/document/d/1SxisIf9QyaETiM0OcIWNdPcgStnkKipKvSnc_z5MmEw
>>20267863Those are really annoying.I get quite a lot of people who think they can get into kigging with like 30 bucks
>>20270623Kek, the comment in particular that made me write this post was on one of your vids actually.
What's approximate female to male ratio in kigurumi?
>>20270729As I understand it most stage performers are female.As for hobbyists it's usually dudes who wear these.
>>20270729Every 10 performers is 5 female, 4 male, 1 apache helicopter
>>20270631Ha, nice xDMost annoying YT Comments are the questions that have been asked a million times and the ones begging for a specific video tho
>>20272815It's the same person or persons trolling the thread. Just ignore.
>>20277270Huh? How am I trolling the thread, or do you mean the kids in the YouTube comment section?
>>20278113Think anon means the people in my YT comments.And sadly I don't think so, I honestly think people are just that clueless
>>20270729In 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 = MaleThe 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.
>>20279208The 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.
>>20279208Ah, 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...
>>20281748I'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>>20281835Such as the guy who actively threatened me with doxxing me and bashing my head in should I not do a face reveal?
>>20283308I 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.
>>20286519Are you actually this mad about "wait isn't it usually dudes who wear these?"
>>20249940Being in Japan has it's advantages.
>>20286548It's not what I call "mad". It's what I call trolling or wasting board space. Take your pick. Remember, this is a Kigurumi Reddit page. "Most readers" don't come here by accident.
>>20286590>Remember, this is a Kigurumi Reddit page
>>20286602I really don't know what you want to achieve. People will just move on if it's too distasteful in here.
>>20286643it's 4chando you look at anything else on this site or do you only go here
>>20286568Are you a performer, or just a fan?
Any good kig deals for Black Friday?
>>20290858Buy 1 Sakib, get a million fake account reports free
>>20270729Most kigus are female.
>>20298897Those hands look very feminine.
>>20302080What about the dick?
>>20302929Also very feminine!
>>20314721I have the same hairstyle as the one on the right.
>>20314721pleaseB R U S H T H E H A I R
>>20314897When you get out of bed?
>>20318567I was more talking about the giant bald spot.
eat a daki mouse!
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.
>>20335958you can carry-on if you can put in your luggage.
>>20335978My 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.
>>20335958Mail it to yourself?
>>20335958I put it an RV box, locked it, checked it in, and I got it back safely without damage.
>>20335958I just packed all the soft things around the mask and put it into a hardshell luggage. Never had any trouble
>>20322160How do they muster up courage to get out like that in public?
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?
>>20352251You should still measure yourself with padding that you plan to wear underneath.But not breast inserts because those have their own little pocket.>>20343723If 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
>>20352372So 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.
>>20343723Strength in numbers
>>20352588Measure with anything you plan to wear under the hada. The warning about no padding is more for breast forms than anything else.
>>20352588Mine stretches pretty well, better than the MFW ones.The material is a bit thicker, but super comfy to wear. (I wish the legs on mine weren't ill fitting ;_; )
Post an image where the mask is partially broken and you can see one of the wearer's real eyes underneath. I want to know if that is really as unsettling as it sounds.
>>20354617Holy fucking shit that's hard to read, learn to screenshot things
>>20355648Had to shrink it. Was that or holy shit page filling size.
>kigurumi fucking in pornhubAny of you did this?
>>20356637A decent amount of it is stolen. But some of it is uploaded by the actual person inside the kig.Quality varies a lot.
>>20354398>>20354843Thanks 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?
>>20356637Have fun searching for codes, there's plenty stuff uploaded.
Where did you kigs find how to make hippads?
>>20364663Haven't tried it myself but I've heard good things about this:https://www.deviantart.com/franchii-manchii/art/Leg-Affects-Pattern-Download-LegAffects-Costume-193208589
>>20360141>>20364663Look up drag queen tutorials, it's the same shit
>>20371935What'cha thinkin 'bout?
>>20378758I dunno, just kigurumi stuff I guess.
/r/ing that photo of all the kigs on the subway/metro train
>>20383745There was another one in the daylight that had a few more, but this will do.>kamen rider and ranger in the backgroundFirst time I've noticed this, neat.
>>20386015that's it, thanks fampai
