/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.

Unpopular opinion thread part 2: Electric Boogaloo
starting with: fatphobia isn't real. And i'm laughing at every single fatty screaming about it whenever a new release gets mentionned.
Sizing in lolita is now more 'inclusive' than ever and if you can't fit your lard into that then you should probably go on a diet.
Being fat (or 'plus size' like they like to tell themselves) isn't beautiful. A bit chubby can be cute but being fat is never beautiful i've never seen a fat girl's body looking good. Their face and their makeup skills can save it but they look comical

Tyler went from boring brandwhore to brand ita and I hate that and looking at her cringey interactions with her bf far more than her also cringey self righteous anti-apology video. Her channel is evolving in a direction not much better than Lor's, just with her pretending to be tough or edgy instead of uwu lovely.

Puckering with thin fabric could be related to tension, having threaded the machine improperly (which usually falls under tension), having a needle that is too big or not sharp enough, etc.

It may be helpful to try googling some troubleshooting tips and working through those one by one. My go-to problem solver when stuff is messing up is to rethread the top and bobbin of my machine before adjusting anything, and then checking tension next if that doesn't fix it. Then the other stuff like needle size or type and all.

Is it possible to deflate a petti? I bought this poofmonster about 6 or 7 years ago and did my damnedest to keep it at its (near) max fluffiness, but with my style change, that much fluff doesn't fit my wardrobe anymore and overstuffs most of it. I don't want to toss it, but no one's going to buy a 7 year old used petticoat so I'd rather try deflating it if possible.

>>10610363
Remove a layer?
>>
>>10610194
It's likely that the threads used would be polyester, which doesn't take dye as well as cotton. Polyester thread is used because it won't shrink and cause puckering when a garment is washed, btw

>There isn't a counter, but tickets are divided up into six different pickup start times.
Which has no real backend metric, we can only assume it's divided evenly.
>As of right now, only one of those slots has sold out (the earliest start time, as expected).
Assuming we only see 1 sold out that means 1166 are sold thus far and the rest could be any other number of sold capacity; meaning the next slot could be 95% or maybe friday's slot is both at 80. It's impossible to speculate at this point since we have no hard metrics.
>I can sort of extrapolate and estimate that they've likely sold less than 2000 tickets so far.
It's a complete shot in the dark, for all we know the first badge pickup is under a limited number of staff limiting to the first 500 people.

>>10608517
It's stated on the website but it could also be one of those, and looks to be, a CYOA kind of deal. Any law office probably told them to put that there in the event the state of OHIO or someone raised hell. In that event they could easily pull the "well we only sold X number of badges which allowed Y number of people in" and have it all on paper be by the letter of the law following capacity rules laid down. It being properly enforced or not is a completely different story and would all be hearsay impossible to prove one way or the other.
>>
>>10608536
>Which has no real backend metric, we can only assume it's divided evenly.
Since this is something they're doing to mitigate crowding, it's a very safe assumption it's divided evenly, otherwise it would defeat the whole purpose.
The tickets split up by the earliest start time you can pick them up, which means the earliest ones are the "best" ones. This is why the earliest ticket time sold out first, and the second earliest will sell out next. There is no benefit to choosing a later pickup start time.
Yes, there is no telling what percentage of the next slot is sold, but there is absolutely no reason to believe the 3rd/4th/5th slot will have any significant amount sold.
There are a number of variables that can't be accounted for, but it isn't a complete shot in the dark. It's pretty clear they have a LONG way to go before selling out.

8 gauge steel wire is what I use to structure wings or tails when needed on costumes. It's shapeable, sturdy enough to hold up foam and bounces as you walk for a nice floating aesthetic. If your prop is made out of foam it will be more than strong enough to hold it up.

sewing and crafting threads are kill, came here to ask about this. ive got a chink repro of a singer pixie plus to work with, and i am trying to see if my machine is good enough to take cotton twill pants in and out at the waist. over thinner bits i can stitch in the ditch just fine, but this is what happens if i go over where the fabric is folded back in on itself at the thicker parts. is this a thread tension issue, or am i pushing the limits of a cheap machine?

General stupid question. Does anybody know of a site to get a decent quality victorian-style maid outfit? I wanna do one for a maid cafe (maybe) and I figured Taobao might have one, but the stores in the taobao don't quite have what I'm looking for. Think the first or fifth one here.

Also, not sure if this is accurate, but I have heard that some less "prestigious" schools can have more lax dress codes.
>>
>>10605675

It depends. Nowadays some schools are moving away from uniforms and kind of going for the American-style dress code. Interestingly, the arguably most prestigious girl's school (お茶の水女子) in Japan has a fairly lax dress code.

I've had a couple of seifuku arrive from Y!Japan and I'm in love. I'd previously had a couple of Taobao seifuku but the quality is dogshit compared to these.
>>
>>10610413
Real Japanese uniforms (sold by people graduating and all) are often very good quality since they have to last a few years of constant wear. It's like how an authentic randoseru is going to cost more but last a very very long time.
>>
>>10610419
Indeed. In my country our school uniforms are expensive but this feels like a much better quality than anything I used to wear, even when I went to a "prestigious" school. I'm really happy.

so i just received a print with a single layer of foam board as backing...and it was perfect. do you guys ship with double board (if shipping flat?)
i ship with double board because i get anxious about protection (and will probably continue to do so) but wondering what the mishap rate is for prints that are sent with just one backing board...(i use cardboard instead of foam)
>>
>>10608963
I ship paper goods in double chipboard because doubling up makes it slightly harder to bend the envelope. If I’m shipping something more valuable like a lolita print or a kpop photocard, I also put it in a plastic sleeve that’s hard to bend before putting it between chipboard.
