• 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.

Idk what happened to previous thread, so here we go.
Can someone recall the retail price for Carnival second edition?

how much could i get for this?

There was a lyrical bunny face necklace and ring set that sold for I think $75 recently on LM (they just had to drop the price at 5am and I missed it haha);

If you have any matching pieces from the set I would reccomend selling together so you can list for a bit higher price and get more together.
List it as an auction starting at $75, no BIN. In the worst case, nobody bids and you can relist it for a lower price. It's a relatively rare and cute necklace.
these are cute but fairly unpopular, $40 bidding $50 BIN ?
thanks! that's about what i imagined

Let's post here the best sexy cosplay out there.

Have some free shit you wonderful degenerates
Idk where you’re located but most thrift stores in my area will let you test the machine before purchase to prove that it works. I’ve tested machines in Savers and Goodwill before.
If you are not big into instagram, spending time in self promotion, browsing E-famous people, Do you miss most of the cosplay world ?
So unfortunately due to the craft thread being dead, I'll ask here.
Is there a good place to get a custom super sentai/power ranger helmet?
I've decided that if I ever, EVER, start cosplaying, I have have to do it as the White Ranger from DinoThunder.
Unfortunately I have no experience with helmets, but I have experience sewing, so the hemet is my only issue.
Would also be lit for a Samurai Flamenco cosplay.

If you look at anime characters, their legs are usually very slim. Even those who have thick bodies would translate into a thin body IRL.

So IMO girls who have very slim bodies look the best while doing cosplay.

Girls who have normal bodies look like a "fat" version of the character.

Does anyone else thinks the same???

All of them are fat as fuck!
I have a question for all the fat girls here. Is it that hard to keep your mouth shut?????
No one

Not a fat bitch.

Anons how do you guys deal with broad shoulders while still wearing cute things?

I end up feeling like a crossdresser when i wear anything with frills or cute prints, the contrast with my undelicate body is so ugly. I'm not even fat, just have big shoulders, no waist and a large ribcage (fridge shaped...). And yeah, i'm cis. My mom and aunt have this same shape.

It got so bad that i threw out all the clothes i liked and kept only jeans and tshirts a few months ago. I couldn't handle seeing my reflection or seeing myself in pictures anymore.

But i still drool over dresses and printed skirts, cardigans... i want to go back to wearing things that i like. Do you any of you have this issue?
7 replies omitted. Click here to view.
I have an athletic build, naturally always been thick, muscular with broad shoulders and always been about a US size 6 or 8. Cute little blouses and little sleeves are heinous lol. I can fit in brand OPs, except for my shoulders/muscular arms, so I just wear JSKs. I've found that dresses with poofier sleeves or with a certain silhouette make me look more well proportioned, as well as wearing a twintail wig (which I already loved the look of, but when I realized it literally hides and changes how my shoulders look, I love them for lolita. I used to wear my natural hair more. Depends on the coord)

Pic is a rudimentary drawing of the shape sleeves I was talking about that make my arms/shoulders look better. It's weird because you'd think big poofy longer sleeves would make your arms look bigger, but nahhh
Damn this thread was made 4 me
Big hair, big skirt, anything to balance it out. 3/4 and mid length puff sleeves are godlike. I find short sleeved puff tops can be flattering sometimes, but only if they have a very low neckline. Do not wear puff sleeves with cardigans unless they're very baggy because you will look like the hulk.

Try to avoid tight sleeves and tank tops. For normie clothes I look pretty disproportionate in shorts and only wear skirts.
I feel this so much, I’m shaped like an upside down triangle. Wide shoulders, 96cms at the bust but only 68cms and 93cms for waist and hips. I feel so awkward wearing anything high waisted and you’ll never catch me dead in anything that’s strapless.
I take my clothes to my nearby local tailor. He's a cool old asian dude that happily helps me out when I need some adjustments on fits.

thats so shitty anon, is there any way to open a dispute and get your money back at least?

Are you the chick selling the meta bubblebath JSK on LM? I felt so bad for her seeing the listing, and fuck the SS for not checking quality and realizing it.
If he loves you for who you are, he won't judge you for your interests. Just explain it's jfashion/princess fashion and how it makes you feel nice. My bf is fashion illiterate but very supportive of me, he says my money is mine to spend on whatever I want and just thinks I look really cute. His reaction when I walk out of my room in a full coord makes me laugh and smile like crazy. He really loves me and it shows. Give him a chance to see your true feelings, anon :)
Wow, I was going through the exact same thing. Have you discussed it with him at all? I was mostly worried about my bf being one of those people who think lolita=Lolita book=pedo/ddlg, but I lucked out with a Nabokov-scholar bf who was surprised and annoyed to find out people make that connection at all. He reluctantly admitted he's uncomfortable with the cutesy OTT sweet look, but otherwise thinks lolita as a concept is very "punk."

I'm rambling but just sharing this because you might be surprised what you learn if you discuss it with him! Especially if you describe it as a rebellious self-expression thing (even if it isn't for you)
I approached it with my bf by sending him some photos of dresses and being like "wow these are so cute" and then he replied "you'd look so good in those! how much are they?"

He was more concerned about the prices of them rather than the "weirdness" of them, but after he saw how much it meant to me and how much I liked them he even offered to pitch in to buying.

tldr; Rather than giving him a whole explanation of what lolita was, I just started by showing him stuff and it worked well for me.

I just want a colossal thread. Can be either the main con or east. The east pic was already in my phone. Did you get a room for either? Have to deal with the movement of main? Have a cosplay lined up? Discuss.

I dont understand this mentality. "I dont like this thing. I better go into this thing and make my opinion known." Explain it to me. What compels you to share your opinion, to send out that burst of negativity? There are a ton of other threads on this board but you still came here.
Conventions and gatherings as it relates to cosplay/Lolita, you dipshit. It's not intended for your circlejerk fantasy discussion about a con girl touching your weewee
Lmao you didn't even read the screenshot that's not what it says at all. Don't be mad you can't drink as much beers or have as much sex as us cool dudes.
If we there's not an economic depression or nuclear war first.
Depression is incoming. The shutdown fucked up so many supply lines. Gonna be an interesting few years.
Nuclear is unlikely. Too many people have them now.

>The Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center in National Harbor filed a layoff notice June 15 affecting its 2,077 employees as the coronavirus pandemic continues to pummel the hospitality industry.

>The Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification (WARN) filed with the Maryland Department of Labor lists an effective date of March 11. The Gaylord, Greater Washington's largest hotel at 1,996 rooms, has been closed since March 24, when the owner of all seven Gaylord resort properties across the country suspended operations.

So much for those cons coming back anytime soon.
27 replies and 2 images omitted. Click here to view.
This is the equivalent of asking Dragon Con to leave the host hotels and move to the world congress center.

It ain't happening.
First, even though Katsucon's staff pretends otherwise, Katsucon is a cosplay con and half the attendees would stop coming if they didn't get the pretty Gaylord. Second, Otakon's con center is too big for Katsucon. It's actually too big for Otakon -- there's sizable chunks of it that AwesomeCon uses but Otakon doesn't. Third, the hotel situation for Otakon kind of sucks -- if you don't get one of the immediately adjacent hotels, it's a half-mile trek through downtown DC, which will get you a lot more weird stares than walking across National Harbor.

Same, I reserved a room but I expect the whole thing to get cancelled. DC and Maryland have kept new cases low relative to their peaks a few weeks ago, but Katsucon would be bringing in people from states with worse control.
I remember getting the worst flu of my life at Magfest back in 2015 because I split a room with some dirty fucks since all the rooms were sold out. I couldn't imagine going now with all this covid shit, sad because it was a fun convention.
>even though Katsucon's staff pretends otherwise, Katsucon is a cosplay con
This. I don't understand why KEI continues to pretend that Katsu is a legitimate con that people go to for anime content instead of a cosplay con. Before last year, most people would book rooms and then ghost the con. No one actually cares about the con itself, only that they get to rub elbows with famous photographers and cosplayers.
Scary thing here is that corona was in the US as early as December and I would not be surprised if Mag and Katsu were early vectors for spreading covid.

I find this outfit cute! If she really insists on the yellow cardigan it's fine, but I bet she could find really cute detailed yellow ones from brands like Nile Perch that would match this vibe more. But overall I find this a nice coord

Here's to hoping we both get our packages on time; we'll be the lucky ones. I'll be amazed if it comes, because I ordered a number of other things from different places that have yet to arrive or even give me an idea of when they will. This has been truly been the worst time to shop.
what bodyline main pieces will suit old school?

A good majority of their solids.
I've seen a few of their all-black or all-white dresses and skirts incorporated, there's also pic related (L348, she's wearing it without the bow).
Found a red checkered jsk that gives me old school feels last night

I hate this entitled bitch. Everytime she needs an essential coord element, she begs, whines and starts a GFM. Buy your own stuff like the rest of us.
No, that was a malicious rumor started by her ex lover. She left her for some rich man. And the ex assumed she became a sugar baby. The fall out on FB was absolute cringe.
I just came here to post this ita monstrosity. You beat me.

I have never once heard that lolita fashion was created is in response to pedophilia and sex trafficking of children in Japan. Where did they find this info??? If this is true I guess I'm uneducated, but this just reads like a heavy exaggeration of the aspect of "I wear what I want and don't exist to please anyone"
It's fucking bizarre. Child sex trafficking??? What the fuck???
OP was just talking through their ass after reading the first 2 sentences of the wiki article. Trying to be a woke mansplainer and shove his uneducated “hot take” down peoples throats.

I think that OP got lolita fashion confused with nymphet/egirl fashion

I'm not after these pieces, but same.

I have the money, and with how fast older AP goes, I kind of rely on people overpricing their stuff to scare others off. Like bump it up 5,000 yen... 10,000 yen. I'll pay if it's the right item.

I'm very close to considering attending Anime Matsuri this year from all the way from the DC area just to get out of the house after 2-3 months.

I've heard about the convention many years ago but I need to know what to expect.

>Houston mayor uses AM as an example on an event that voluntarily cancelled when venting his frustration the Republican convention refused to cancel and he had to do it for them
>Boycotters be like, NO THE MAYOR HAD TO CANCEL AM

why would the mayor lie about them choosing to cancel? He had no reason to do that. What actually happened was that in the last week or two they changed their mind to go forward based on what was happening.

Not everything AM does is a conspiracy, jesus

>kickvic right now

I mean, this is BAM we are talking about. When have they ever believed anything counter to the narrative they try to push?

I can (and did) literally provide video evidence of the mayor saying AM voluntarily postponed their event...

boycotters are still are going to believe whatever kooky idea they've convinced themselves is the truth, It's hopeless trying to convince them otherwise.

Just do what you want and go have fun
DM, the Leigh’s right hand person, has quit AM. If you check her profile in both Facebook and Instagram, she doesn’t have anything about AM on her bio.
Anime Matsuri was forced to cancel not because they "listed to the fans" or whatever PR nonsense, but because of the Houston Mayor ordered by fiat the cancellation of all conventions in the Houston Convention Center until 2021.

>Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner stated on Monday that "in this city, all other conferences and conventions have canceled or been rescheduled to next year with the exception of" the July 16-18 Texas State Republican Convention.

The real reason was to get the GOP in Texas to call off theirs and then added numerous regulations designed to can the convention if it breaks them.

Anime Matsuri leadership spun this around using PR language to make themselves feel less sad, while in reality they were forced to by mayoral fiat. If they were more honest and say "we were forced to" and explained that other cons were forced to cancel, people would be better.

This move by the mayor is a contant theme for 2020: You are not allowed to relax and everything is canceled except politics. With anything, waiting another 12 months for any relief from politics is unbrearable and is a disaster to the morale of the city which is in a social and economic collapse, with a mayoral leadership that has no solutions in mind.
