/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.

The starting point to fix this doesn't even exist. It isn't a coord, to say it is, "Ita," would be an upgrade identifying that Lolita was the goal.

Eh add a petti, blouse, lolita tights or socks and shoes, a hair accessory and purse and it could be okay. She has a dress that fits which is better than a lot of newbs

How's btssb dresses on tall lolitas?
esp interested in this and similar ones
>>
>>10324070
I have this guy, looks very similar to your example. I'm 5'1 and it covers my knees. The bodices on these JSKs are fairly short, so keep that in mind. It hits me at my natural waist, so if you're tall or very busty it'll probably look more empire and unflattering. Honestly, I see a lot of taller lolitas wear old baby pieces and it never looks right, it comes across like sissy clothes when the dress squishes your bust, emphasizing your shoulders and legs. bonus points for peeking bloomers to try and salvage the inappropriate length which makes it look even more like the dress shrunk. Maybe anons can post examples of lolitas making it work, I want to believe, but I haven't seen it myself.

welp time to find a new dream dress probably,thanks for the info!
Maybe someone knows similar alternatives that size up well in height?
>>
>>10324104

IW used to make their long jsks with an extra inch in the bodice. Couple that with adjustable shoulder straps, it's one of your better options if you're slender. They're well-known for boobloafing anything over B cup and their long jsks are narrower in the skirts (hence you gotta be slender... sorry).

Triple Fortune generally looks too big on Asian models and work much better on taller, bigger girls with taller frames as well. The fully shirred bodices are a toss-up whether it looks good or not though, you might want to pick up a cincher or corset to go with it.

Maybe we need another tallita thread, I'm a short girl just regurgitating what I remember from older tallita threads.

The styles are B-kei/B-boy style/ Hip Hop Kei on top, Gyaru-kei with the pink hair, and Ebichan-kei (I'm guessing modeled after Yuri Ebihara/Ebichan) on the right.

>>10323860
>Ebichan-kei
Never heard of her, but I assume she must have been the new hot thing at the time.

Googling her, she doesn't seem to have any particular stand-out style though, so is there any more information on what exactly this was? Was there seriously a whole subset style based on copying one particular model's outfits?

I'm trying to find a live video of an idol who wore lolita. The girls from the audience were in the stage with her dancing and there was crazy light stick action.

Most of us went through the Hare Hare Yukai-calypse and masquerades were never the same.
What are some obnoxious recent trends plaguing the cosplay scene? Pic very related.

Pretty good! I cut up some lace I liked to isolate the parts I thought was coolest. I was originally going to have it be -just- the lace, but I felt like that was too flimsy. I have gotten simple lace chokers before, and my first attempt at them was to mimic those and treat them with the same sort of laquer and clasp connectors to make them stiff and more durable, but the result had the design look really dulled and shitty so I scrapped that. I also remembered so many of my friends being allergic to metals (especially the cheap kind I get at craft stores and ali) so I opted to just forego them altogether. Killing two birds with one stone by doing a ribbon support back. It looks nice, it supports it, and helps tie it in the back.

There was another choker I had that was similar to this in that was a velvet ribbon with some lace, but it was clearly sewn together with a machine because there's this big obvious line cutting through the lace pattern and that really irked me, so I took the time to handsew this ribbon into the pattern of the lace so it's basically invisible on the front. It was almost as much effort as cutting the lace itself, but I was really happy with the result! It was so tempting to just glue stuff, but I'm trying to move away from techniques like that because I've relied on them for so long.
>>
>>10323589
A little sloppy but I respect you not hotglueing it together.

Yaya’s patterns are awful because they’re made directly from her personal patterns without any additional grading, so unless you’ve got her exact weird body proportions, nothing fits. Wasn’t there also some kind of issue with the cups of her corset running crazy big?

Something like happened in my comm too once but now it's like a local lolita horror story we tell people so they'll be careful in the bathrooms at high end places too... How could anyone be proud of stepping in shit? And how could she not wash her shoes jfc you're in a bathroom at least use the sink

No, you are confused with Tamaqro buying Moitie. WW also became worse (more expensive) because of Tamaqro.
>>
>>10323954
As far as I know, WW played no part in their revival. VM is selling through WW the same way Queen Bee sells through Atelier Pierrot.

I believe the only change that came with VM's reopening was that Nimu left and Lumi seems to have taken over as head designer.

Their lace is less delicate now, but other than that people exaggerate. The really old things I have/had from them were very simple.

Sometimes I feel sorry for how accessible lolita fashion has become. Back then you needed to deal with so many obstacles. Every brand purchase has become something extraordinary and precious. It doesn't feel that special anymore and I miss that.

Another feel is based on my observation about other people's outfits and their quality. So many people say that insta perfectionism has killed the spirit of lolita. Well, today I noticed that imperfect, maybe somewhat messy outfits bother me, so idk what do I stick to.

Just in planning for my first cosplay, for sydney madfest.
Wondering if anyone had exact details and/ or experience on their weapons policy. I found their terms on the site but its not 100% clear.
"hard props" (made of metal, glass and fibreglass) is one not allowed. This doesn't mention wood, so i could i make a sword out of wood and be OK?
I have been to the previous two melbourne madfest and certainly feel like people had 'hard' props (as well as many over 1m which is also not allowed). So are the rules somewhat lenient and as long as you dont seem to be acting like a retard they'll be chill with you?

Also anyone been to both melbourne and sydney madfests? which have you liked more?

Give me your best bad cosplay makeup finds! I'll start off with some of my favourites.

How much bread do you eat? Is it white bread or something else?

Also you gotta learn to love veggies! I used to hate them too and then I learned how to prepare them so I'll actually eat them and suddenly this whole world of freshness and flavor was opened up to me. Now if I don't get veggies often enough I crave them and it's kind of great!

This doesn't happen overnight though, so start by incorporating veggies into your meals in ways that are palatable, whether that's by drenching them in cheese or dipping them in ranch, and then slowly start phasing out the unhealthy bits over time. There are plenty of amazing resources out there on how to cook vegetables so they're actually appealing (hint, don't fucking steam or microwave them, whatever you do) and get the good quality vegetables.

I do a lot of martial arts and started cosplaying more fighting characters. I don't think it's obligatory for cosplayers to work out, but it does add an extra dimension to cosplay.
When I dressed as Chun-Li and people saw me warm up for video or photoshoots, they got so stoked to see me do proper kicks and stances. It's like people who can do actual basketball when they cosplay from that basketball anime. It just adds to the whole experience.
But it's never obligatory. Have fun and add into cosplay what you want and what you like.
