/cgl/ is a board for the following:

• Cosplay
• Lolita
• J-fashion
• Conventions & gatherings
• Sewing & prop-making
• Craftsmanship tools/materials & tutorials
• LARPing
• Discussing accessories such as wigs/circle lenses/prosthetics/makeup (These must be within the context of the board-related topics listed above; weight loss threads should be kept in /fit/, beauty and fashion generals should be kept in /fa/)

Our board rules are simple:

• Thread content must be related to one of the categories covered in the list above. Off-topic threads and replies will be deleted.
• Singling people out maliciously is not tolerated and will result in a ban. 4chan is not your personal army. The singling out rule applies to vendetta threads and replies being made to attack a specific person, as well as predatory behavior like doxing. Discussing an individual in general isn't against the rules as long as it's done within context of cosplay/lolita/j-fashion.

Chisako is so cute! But my heart is always with saki and asuma
Same! They were the heyday of AP's models. I really wish they had more dynamic photoshoots, or at the very least let Kisa smile.
Wow she's so beautiful!!

And Mana is definitely on par with some shop girl from a decade ago, good comparison
One of the anons was actually me, so the two others must be someone else or two different people

NAYRT but I have EDNOS and due to the nature of it, I eat far less than a typical anorexic. I've been having trouble getting below a BMI of 18. My body has been feeling the heat of nocal but I want to be just a bit thinner, how much exercise will it take to break through?

>Handmake or thrift jewelry of accessories to actually feel a real connection to what you own
Legit this. When I started out, I spent $200 on accessories just for holy grail lolita coords. I regret it so much because my friends used to gift me jewelry and friendship bracelets that I basically threw aside for a bunch of generic strawberry cake bows whatever because "it doesn't fit my coord" "isn't lolita enough".
4chan isn't social media in the same way IG and CoF are retard
i mean like pictures...

This is a helpful option anon
I turned off Instagram notifications and generally don't bother following many people except those I really get inspiration from. They're usually so far out of my follower count league that I don't compare myself. It's nice to feel like I have something to work toward

Sheraton Dallas Hotel. Friday, December 17th through Sunday, December 19

Anyone planning on going to this?
2 replies omitted. Click here to view.
Probably going for a day. I really want them to survive but what a shitty time to try to do a con. I have a theory they were forced to do it under contract because it's literally the last weekend of the year you could hold an event...
This won't be happening at cons on a regular basis until at least 2023.
2022 at the earliest and that is depends on Japan
They had a virtual con earlier in the year, so the only contract would be with the hotel.

They are having the art show again this year so I'm going to and check that out.
Obviously I'm referring to the contract with their venue. What does a virtual event have to do with anything?

they intentionally drew the red line to not match their anatomy, can you read?
those coats aren't really thick and its already a mini skirt so I kinda get it
Yeesh, I didn’t even say the coord was bad, just that it was short. Everyone here really is psychotic, huh?
How is it too short? It's longer than her arm length.
Leg goals. What do you gulls think is her BMI?

What is with the party garland thing?
Was AP's garland actually mean't to be worn? Just seems better on the wall where it belongs
Is this supposed to be their interpretation of OTT old school?
what's wrong with this?
Why do western lolitas put on such weird faces in photos? Left is visibly uncomfortable, middle has a forced smirk, right looks like she just wants to get it over with. They’re only marginally better than the duck face and sweet lolitas with deadpan stares. Eastern lolitas and their bug eye filters are pretty annoying too, but at least they don’t look miserable.
or maybe they're not photogenic anon. or just camera shy. i look like a retard in pictures due to both these things so i usually slap a sticker and call it quit

Can you try shrinking it anon? Chuck her in the dryer for a couple minutes maybe?
Oh that's an interesting idea. Had to google it and apparently viscose does shrink. Makes me nervous about it shrinking unevenly but maybe I'll try that. Thank you!
post results here, i'm curious
what would i type to get something like this?
alternatively does anyone know the original of this since its all over aliexpress and yesstyle type sitws
Reminder that 12.12 is some Taobao sale thing again.

There is no "shilling" involved...

Sooooo, pointing out people's wrong opinions is the same as "shilling"? So when I say something about a other convention, and you defend it, then you're a shill for that convention as well?
Right, good luck with calling the whole 4chan board an "shill".
Also, I think I've been quiet clear about when I am wrong, and will actually say so, but nobody else here seems to have the balls or morals to accept that their opinion maybe doesn't matter, cause it's untrue, well, except for being a total ass, but that's classic 4chan behavior here, not that I'm surprised.

Have a good Christmas either way, but try reflect on yourself about your own remarks, not that you would give 2 shits about it.
At this point I'm starting to believe that TomoAnon is just a very elaborate troll that consistently appears to grind our collective gears.
It's not that strange that staff of conventions and other weeb organizations lurk these threads. (Remember "kritische zeemeeuwen" ?). It is a place where people can freely discuss and criticize cons so for the cons it can provide some useful feedback.
As for tomo, those who spoke to the staff personally know that they are posting here, or at least one of them is. If the shitposter currently derailing the thread really is a tomo staff, a troll or just a tomo whiteknight like he claims to be, we can't tell for sure. It's all anonymous after all.
The only one derailing the discussion are the ones who cannot respect someone elses opinion, and calling people shills does not really contribute to anything, other then being frustrated that someone else has a different opinion, which is pretty sad.
Why would one be required to respect your opinion, especially if that opinion is based on facts that are wrong or even a blatant lie. Tell me why?

Keep it /cgl/-related! Cosplay or J-fashion like Lolita/Brolita, Aristocrat, Kimono, Nanchatte, etc.!


ITT you may post:
- Useful guides that can be applied to crossplaying/crossdressing
- Questions, help, sharing advice to improve your appearance to pass temporary as the opposite gender (Male -> Female, Female -> Male)
- pictures of crossplay/crossdressing coords, selfposts
- personal experience/stories regarding crossplay/crossdressing

NOT allowed:
- Anything in sexual context/fetish stuff
- Anything related to gender transition like hormones, operation etc.; >>>/lgbt/ might be the better place for this
- Casual crossdressing without any /cgl/-context

NTAYRT I can push them all the way up and inside but that just looks like i have two massive tumors on my crotch area. Is that how it's supposed to look like or are my balls too big?
How hard is it to walk in heels?
Depends on how high, higher takes longer to learn. You'll need to practice for sure though you can't just put them on for the first time and go, theres a technique you gotta learn to not wobble and break your ankle.
So any heels are a bad idea first time?
You just need to practice walking in them well before the con

February 10-13, 2022 @ Hyatt Regency Columbus

Does anyone know how strict they are with masks? Especially for cosplay photos etc.
Started the previous thread (the one that was flying there). Pto got denied so I’m not going either
Columbus has a mandate that in every indoor building you have to be masked unless eating or whatever. Security usually has a god complex. I would bet you will still have to wear masks for pictures indoors.

ITT: red flags that show that a anime con is going to be absolute shit

>game room also doesn’t have ANY TVs set up for attendees to bring their own consoles

Politics has nothing to do with money or business. I'm going to give you 2/10 for getting me to acknowledge this from a week ago.

>the chad cosplay

nice haha
I wish this was true so moids would leave me the fuck alone at cons
That's because it is Anime Expo. They could literally have it where you just pay to wait in line, no panels, guests, dealers room or AA, just pay a lot of money to wait in line and people would show up for that.
>anon bring up easily provable points
>women and fake women seething in droves
>now has more (You)s than OP

oh women and fake women, when will you learn?
