Can someone please post a coord? I want to draw some cute non-print coords, please don't let the drama anons turn you away.
I personally understand what the dimensional problem is. It reminds me of when people just shade up on the lines, with little color theory.

OP is lacking dimension because he's not reflecting color and light around the environment, which usually if you're going the route of line-less then you need to bring dimension to the photo more with contrast. It's obvious OP is good but still learning. It could have honestly been a speed paint and I wouldn't fault him for it, but if he was going for refined and spent a lot of time on it then he needs to be studying light and color more.
No one wants to be witch hunted
previous thread is still up with some images.
The key here is speeding up the process. Industry professionals are still perfectly capable of producing similar results without photobashing and only photobash to save time, not to cover up a lack of experience. The art in the OP is clearly using photobashing as a crutch which is why it looks so lifeless. There's no skill to back it up.

General socializing with people at cons girls, guys, making friends. What's your advice? What are some of the social interactions you have or don't have. Just general talk about it, Whatever.
I refuse to believe I have lived long enough to see a generation so socially retarded they don’t know how to say hi to the opposite sex.
Saying hi without consent is the equivalent of rape
It used to be easy to socialize with the homestuck fans, just cosplay as something from homestuck and then you'd be invited to their group. But when it got small enough the fans started to stay in their own small exclusive groups so that's no longer a viable way to socialize.
The same was so some extent true for MLP, but to a much smaller extent. I did meet some nice bronies at a few cons but bronies were often too normie for us to get well together.

In general though I'd say the best is probably to cosplay as something and hope people come up to you and talk about it. You can also do the same and go up to people who cosplay as things you really like.

Other than that, try to do something that's social where people just meet, like open karaoke rooms or maybe certain games that are open to all.

Honestly though, at most cons I'm alone because I'm so bad at socializing and no one likes me so I don't get a lot, especially not much lasting where I can hang out with people for an extended period of time. Maybe I'll exchange some words but oh I wish I could be taken into someone's group like I was a few times long ago

I can only give you what's worked for me in the past, if someone has something they want to add, I'm good to listen. If you're a guy, its relatively simple. Vet the situation to see if the person is not busy or already socializing. Don't be that fucking weirdo that approaches someone in the middle of their fucking meal. From what I've seen, the best time to approach someone is when they're browsing and being a looky loo, cause they're in exploration mode. Contrary to popular belief don't approach them when they're sitting down, or leaning on something. It means the person is usually cooling down, or is tired. So you're likely to agitate them. Compliment something tangible, like a piece of cosplay that has a lot of detail, and work on it, but you better be genuine about it. Unless you're autistic, complete stranger can tell that you're oozing insincerity because they don't know you, so they're on their guards.

Red Flags:

1. If a person makes an excuse to get away from you "I have to the bathroom/I'm looking for my friend/I'm gonna be late for X", you're done. There's nothing to be gained from here, fuck off. They're not giving you a "I'll see you later", they're giving you a "fuck off"

2. If you smell bad, if you're an unkept filthy mess, if you look like the stereotype of that fatso with the gunt hanging under the brony shirt, don't bother. You're fucking done. You're not doing 1 on 1's spare of the moment. In fact you're doing the opposite, you gravitate negativity. When people see you they're ashamed of their hobby, I've seen it happen all the time. You're the guy that they make excuses for "not everyone into X is like that". Work on yourself to a presentable and at least normal level.

Your only tool to bond with them is that they're interested into the same shit you are, or you're a good looking 10/10 and they want to fuck you. Otherwise, if the engagement goes off into somewhere else you're in unknown territory.
Saying hi meaningless and anyone can say that making a conversation out of that is the hard part. When your head is thing perhaps that girl is thinking I want something if I am talking to her which I do, but how do I come off if I don't.

"being normal" isn't "being a necessity", and the entire conversation is about whether that girl will need to show trigger discipline on a toy gun because she may someday need to own a real gun as a necessity.

if you're not following the conversation, just don't bother responding.
No one "needs" guns most of the time but many people own them regardless which was the entire point. If she's into military stuff who knows if in the future she could become a gun enthusiast. Tbh though it's more that her coord is shit and people in the comments even on cof gave her concrit on various things including how she was holding the gun and she didn't list which is amusing. Nta btw.
*didn't listen, not list, sorry, phoneposting and autocorrect
how she was holding the gun doesn't fucking matter as "concrit" because it's literally a toy. and no, you don't need trigger discipline with a toy. even gun enthusiasts know that
She shouldn't have had the gun at all. Props are for costumes and lolita is not a costume.

i-no anon stuck here

anyone have ideas on how to make the sleeves for the jacket/bolero thing? I already figured out how I'll get it to look like it's floating (a mix of boning around the top edge and interfacing to maintain shape, and using clear snaps to stick the cuffs to the black sleeves underneath so it doesn't slip up or down as I move)

but i have no idea how to get that large almost balloon-ish sleeve, without having the balloon sleeve gathers/ruffles.

here's the reveal trailer if seeing it in action helps you figure it out: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f9taTeo2WD0

I'm using this jacket pattern as the base.
My cosplay has gloves with forearm armor making it difficult to quickly take the gloves on and off. How do I use my phone?
I'll shoot you an email and we can hash out a discord contact or something as need be. Should be CapcomCrusaderX@gmail.com or something if it is me.
Thanks for the tip off on the 40% off EVA foam from Hobby Lobby today. Should have enough for any project for the next 3-4 cons no issue.

Get gloves with lighter sensitivity or cut digits into gloves.

>idiots like you would conflate stripes with mall goth
i never said i did, dipshit. i said normies will, which is also what her bf is concerned about. keep up, will you?
>I'm gonna give you my scrote pov
Silence, normie scrote.
And yet your initial point still has nothing to do with the coord being people of Walmart worthy simply because stripes. Just sit down and shut up already.
>no one here is straight
do they just assume I'm gay or do they just not consider me enough of a person to be worth consideration? This has happened at least twice in different situations. I'm not really liked by people so I feel like they may just pretend I don't exist, but I don't know. (I'm a closet cishet)
It's a good look in my opinion, it emanates rebel energy. But mallGoths hurt the look for a good decade. This is the type of look you take to skate park or concert, not walmart.

was on a work trip from 10/4 to 10/16 and only just now came online to see I've missed the whole announcement and sign up process :') rip. I've always had fun sending things the last couple years but this year I guess I'll maybe offer grinch cards, unless any other latecomer lolitas want to exchange some cards unofficially.
Was waiting for this
I keep checking my email every few hours to see if I've gotten a match yet, and I'm a bit nervous. I hope I get someone who isn't too difficult, and I am worried I made myself difficult with my unspecific form.
Aren’t matches being sent out the 26th?
oops, I thought it could be a deadline but now I see that the deadlines are specified as deadlines so I guess it is that exact date

Nayrt but I saw it sell something like 3 times within a year, so it shouldn't be the most difficult to find
Pretty sure there was an anon or 2 looking for this dress in a previous thread:

This is sadly not the colorway I am looking for
That orange is ugly
I'm the anon looking for orange, but this is not the correct cut. Thank you though!

Um, no? People responded to them in those threads just fine. Sorry people don't like yours and you're butthurt about it, but no need to project.
Resorts World has only been open for a few months, the property is extremely clean and well managed. Smoking is banned everywhere indoors except the casino floor and the smell hasn't has time to settle in yet.
Genting Palace is good.
It looks dark and bland. Why do you care so much?
It's such a big place that it seems like a waste to write it off based on one or two photos.
I work in the gaming industry out here and I'm being genuine about this place being pretty alright compared to some of the older casinos.
I personally like the Venetian and the Palazzo more though. And Green Valley Ranch is a bit of a drive away from the strip but they have the best spa.
it just looks like more typical vegas decor.

Unless they're talking about it literally all the time then not really. I barely discuss anything of that nature because I don't care beyond "both ends of the spectrum are fucking annoying and obsessed with shit that doesn't matter" as expressed in my OP. Reason I don't want people who identify as terfs is because they talk about it all the fucking time like twitter sjws who get pissed off that a normie isn't using their neo-pronouns. The obsession is just weird.
wait NB people are trans? I always thought it meant they were asexual you know like how an android would be NB.
anon, are you okay with messaging over ig? do you have an email?
I don't mind either way! And I do, just noticed I forgot to include it as well, so thank you for reminding me
Asexuals are asexual. NBs claim gender identities that are neither male nor female, in any number of ways. Some of them do some kind of medical transition; many of them just have unusual fashion choices; some of them are like Demi Lovato.

There’s some correlation but one doesn’t strictly have anything to do with the other.
