[Catalog] [Archive]

/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.

Like the title says. Doesn't have to be eye-searingly ugly/wtf, just ones you don't like and why
I'll start. I never liked this print which makes this item double ugly for me

Naked babies was a Hellenistic thing that the Romans appropriated. Started with Eros/Cupid, moved on to cherubs and baby Jesus.

/cgl/ Idol Spreadsheet (Recently updated, under new management!) - https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1WtgRe5cjKIR0BYGhw9N8ahxChLqEFLbZIRbAazooh-o/edit?usp=sharing

Original Music Playlist: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLfmgukQM2isUtJJZz1MY4Jn4zPcbl0wDU

Previously:
-Some dumb shit about Idolized (reminder: there's a lolcow post if you really need to shitpost)
-Idols using cosplays from Love Live as stage outfits
-Julily has pretty dress
-How much for an original song composition? Gulls start talking money
-One Wish posts awkward video, provokes question of "how long can a group call themselves new and be excused for shoddy performances?"
-How can Western idols appeal to Western audiences?

Starter topic: Actually I'd like to use the last bit of discussion on the previous thread and ask about languages. What are the merits of singing songs (covers and originals) in your own language versus in Japanese? Is it still jpop if it's not in Japanese? How about just jpop inspired? Should idols even go for a jpop appeal, or use their music to showcase the culture and language of their own region? Feel free to share worldwide examples of overseas and net idols singing in their own languages.

As a black male that has cosplayed many white characters over 8 years even gender bent, I have received a lot of praise and photos cosplaying, at the end of the day your cosplay needs to not be complete trash because thats what people see first, not your skin. Weebs ESPECIALLY dont care about your race. As for my personal opinion If i can tell you're the character, have your tattoos and piercings covered/out, and have a clean shave then youre fine. Most niggas out here cosplaying dont shave and because of that i just cant take them seriously. Though cosplay doesnt always have to be cool and serious, it can be fun/funny (as its supposed to be). I saw the darkest dude ive ever seen do an Ann genderbend but he had on shutter shades and had a thick ass beard and it was actually the best cosplay id seen the entire con. Shat on all the thotty 2Bs and Wendys girls. People are at cons to have fun, it is the best environment to not care about petty things like race. Its just shitters and shitters in costumes confusing the locals.

I don't. If anything, I'll just fuck with lighting settings for aesthetics. Maaaaybe use clone tool to get rid of a pimple but usually i don't care enough. Imperfect photos are far superior than a blurry, meitu'd mess where you can't even distinguish somebody's facial features, in my opinion.

>paying for photoshop
lmao

also I taught myself photoshop and flash when I was like, 11 years old. It's not that hard unless you're totally computer illiterate or trying to do really complex stuff, and for that there's always tutorials. the only annoying thing is with each new iteration, they'll move features around so it's hard to find stuff.

>>10175209
Used to use Meitu, Youcam Perfect, Facetune, etc... My phone camera now does a good job with smoothing out imperfections so I don't really have a need to edit much.

Light retouching is the way to go. A lot of people take it too far and end up looking worse than they did in the first place.

Got my package today!
I only ordered 9 items since this was my first time, but my next order will be way bigger.
Took almost three weeks from hitting “buy” to arriving at my door, but it might have been quicker if I hadn’t had a brain fart about consolidating the items.
Ordered one aurora and Ariel petticoat, but got two in the package. Definitely paid for one, not complaining.
Ordered three Red Maria tights, one was the wrong color. Definitely selected the right color when I ordered, but I’m not too upset and i figure it’s not worth fussing about.
Everything else was perfect!
All together, shipping cost roughly 25 bucks. That’s for shipping within China + shipping the consolidated package to the US.
Overall this was way less scary of an experience than I thought it’d be. I’d even say knowing mandarin isn’t required to buy directly since it was quite simple, but I couldn’t speak to others’ experiences.
Thanks for answering my silly questions, anons! You were all a great help!

Has anyone used shippingeasy or some other kind of shipping platform, and what has your experience with those been like? I generally focus more on commissions than online merch sales, but would like to make things more accessible to international buyers in the future.

Chiming in with Anon that the crayon style will either not stand out after being printed or will look like low a quality grainy print. On my phone I can't really tell it's textured and links hair looks very grainy, I'd test it out before making a batch.

I'm sorry it's not working out. Though that... really sounds like a difficult project for a beginner. I've been sewing for 20 years and still dread lining up fitted pieces with a zipper. They take many fittings if you're figuring out a tight fit yourself. Tutus are a nightmare and also ballet sizes are small because the dancers need to be small and light. It's not necessarily a fault on you, but it is a hurdle.
Be realistic with your first cosplay. You're going to struggle a lot with it, and it may not turn out how you envisioned it. But you will learn a lot. Don't rush each step, do fits at the patterning stage, remember that some fabrics have more give than your draft might anyway, and still may have to be fitted another time. When you piece it all together if it's not lining up right, do it by hand with large basted stitches and adjust it bit by bit until it sits how you want. Sometimes it takes that much tweaking, and you're still gonna have to pull those stitches out once you machine sew it.

I believe in you. I wish I had the guts to try something so ambitious as my first project, but it was a shirt made out of pajama flannel and looked awful. Don't give up, you're on the beginning of a great path where the pain will eventually pay off some day even if there's always going to be something new you learn with each project.

What shade of purple is it? Is it printed or solid? You can probably make it work with another color.

We haven't had one of these in a while and an anon asked for a new one, so here it is! I changed the template to include the rule of thumb and removed the unnecessary checkbox. I hope that's alright. If not, I'll post the original too.

As always, make sure to give suggestions in order to receive them unless you're the first poster.

That's charming.

In terms of what you're looking for, I think either Crocket or Tarma would be within your means of alteration. Dedede would require more work for a good looking costume, but if you're interested in doing that work then yeah, it would suit you. Out of your three picks, I'd shoot for Crocket. There are far too many other suggestions to narrow down from, but in general: suits, high school uniforms, and casual wear are the easiest to alter or buy premade from amazon.

You have to give recommendations to receive some, my dude.
>>
>>10174985
You filled out your template in such a cute way, anon. You would honestly look good as any of these characters, but I think I'd choose Athena then Rin. Or I'd choose: Nico from Kiznaiver, the mc or Fran Chou Chou from Zombieland Saga, Chika from Kaguya-Sama, or Tohru from Maid Dragon.
