• Cosplay
• Lolita
• J-fashion

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.

Not saying people should screen their customers, but if you're fully aware of the situation and you continue to take money from them....
Then that's their decision whether they want to take Yuuko's money, but whether they choose to do so or not they're not the bad guys here. It shouldn't be expected of them to turn her away once they know about her situation, citing reasons like "taking Yuuko's money = taking advantage". That's taking all of the responsibility away from Yuuko to make her own decisions and laying the blame on others. It wouldn't even help Yuuko in the long run, because if she spends that compulsively you can bet she'll just find other ways to blow all her money.

Adding my input here, i think i know the birthday in question and if i recall, the person whose birthday it was was suffering from some heat stroke and couldn't focus on the drama Yuuko was causing. She basically just sat in the middle of the table and next to the wall so it would be hard for her to leave and there for everyone would notice (making it easier for her to make a show of it all). I was rather focused on dealing with the heat stroke so i don't remember if anything was said to her by other people.

Some how i have become 'friends' with yuuko even tho for the longest time i only said hello to her in passing at conventions after she said hello to me. Now i know why she kept trying to talk to me, because of my facebook page. She even tried to bully her way into a shoot with me that really pissed me off. As i had a friend that was going to cosplay the matching link to my zelda and i wanted to save that (A this is my link thing silly but it's what i wanted) and she kept trying to bully her way into a PAID shoot with me. Never offering to cover part of the cost or anything. LIke i'm sorry i don't care if your strapped for cash or no, i am paying for this shoot, most photographer charge extra for more then one cosplayer (which is fine). i did not want to blind side my photographer by bringing an extra body to the shoot, i did not want to cover the extra cost of her joining and her like was AWFUL! My zelda was boughten yes, but the quaility of her costume, from the wig to the workmanship, EVERY things was horrible and i didn't want photos with a costume that was so much worse then my own. All of that is only going to hurt me, but all of it would work in her favor. Free photos with a more well known cosplayer, with a better costume. fuck pisses me off still
This exact same thing happened with me. I've only met her in passing at cons when we compliment each others cosplays and chat for a minute. But we became friends on facebook, and now she messages me all the time to hang out even though I don't live remotely near her. And there was a big saga with her begging for me to pay for a shoot together, which wouldn't have even made any sense because of our characters (well I guess it would have since she plays smash and they're both in it, but I don't even play smash so it meant nothing to me). I ended up not even going to that day of the convention, but the whole day she kept texting me begging me to come, saying it's not too late to shoot and that she was looking forward to it more than anything, even though I had already said no.
I barely even know her but I don't know how to shake her off at this point. It's ridiculous
I agree with this. If you consider this person a friend, you would kindly tell them no. Maybe if enough people put their foot down, she will realize what she is doing?

some people use make up and contour their chests to make them look bigger.
That's actually a good idea, I didn't think of dyeing at all. Actually probably should've just got all of the fabric in white since the color I settled for is a bit off from what I need, though I already ordered it so it's a bit late for that. There's even a gradient I'm going to try and achieve with bleaching that would have been so much easier to get by dyeing white.

How do I look like Kefka or just a scary clown? I'm a guy I've never played with makeup.
Did you trying googling a tutorial or something first? Nobody here is going to want to or even be able to give you a step-by-step guide on how to do something so broad on command.
In the time you've spent asking people here to spoonfeed you, you could've just googled "clown makeup tutorial" online

I agree with you on this but the "-fag" suffix is just something that is done on 4chan in general... so like why are you on this site to begin with.

>cathycat looking a mess
not surprised
this is effing cute
those satin bows look sax. either way, the warm lav accessories do not work whatsoever with those cool toned bows.
kind of cool for jfash, but really needs more colorful legwear to balance the jacket. more of that sax should be below the knees and a little in the hairwear. love the peeps!
this is not working for me as lolita though. color balance and non-matching pinks and not enough metal/punk elements and all that...
yes, AP rocks, but nothing else here is cute.
Has she finally had a mental breakdown?

Why do yts like you insert yourself into my community's issues? It's annoying. Stay in your lane.
Just get a handgun for self defense if you're so scared all the time
not gonna reply after this because I don't wanna destroy this thread but black people commit significantly less mass shootings than white men.
Don't live in america, handguns are not allowed here, even then i wouldn't want a gun as I also fear a gun related accident would occur. I live somewhere which has not had a mass shooting...ever...and very little violence occurs that isn't gang related so the paranoia is unwarranted.
Gonna drop this topic since I don't wanna shit up the thread but thanks for the advice.
This is great anon. I want to second this, I think it's really important for women friends to talk about sex whenever it's appropriate and everyone is comfortable sharing/listening.
Until we're out of the dark about our bodies, likes/dislikes, and how to successfully reach orgasm when wanted, it's important for ladies to share. so many of my friends growing up dealt with so much shame and imposed ignorance regarding their bodies.
well, I can see you having a hard time being a daily lolita, but you could just wear it once a month like you do with cosplay. or twice a month.
give it a try, your love of the fashion may actually trump the full-beard need.

Only bringing 2 cosplays this year. I was way too busy during the holiday season to get anything done so I'm feeling the crunch for the first time in a few years. Have to touch up 2B a bit and make the gloves and ice cutter for Antarc still; I'm cutting it close!

Hey fellow monochrome anon, I'll be Antarc and going to the meetup on Friday, and I'll also be wearing 2B on Saturday. Nice choice on Ghost, hope to see you there.
I had three planned out, but after an ongoing family emergency I'll be lucky to have Richter alone finished in time.

I know her in person. Yes, she is more the introverted type, but that doesn't mean she's somewhere on the spectrum. I think she is just being humble.

Anyone taking itabag with them? I'm debating on taking Sailor chino moon or Mars bag.
Not sure how to feel about cosplaying at venue.
well how was it
Good for a fan. It was kind of a loose retelling and had a weird amount of electronic music.
It was mostly fan pandering with some tourism advertising thrown it. They had a scene where they danced in Harajuku with a bunch of Gothic Lolitas. I have to assume that was not in the Japanese version. It was cute, though!
Overall I really enjoyed it. I would have preferred if they just brought over the last set of musicals though.
I had a premium ticket and you got to high five the main cast after and got a little cheap souvenir fan. It was worth it to sit up front for me.
Much shorter than expected, (exactly an hour then a 15/20 minute encore) but very fun. I thought the ending was the intermission because the ticket said 2 hours. I’ll have to get closer seats next time to take it all in better.
>I would have preferred if they just brought over the last set of musicals though.

I'm assuming they didn't do this because of the logistics and because it was designed to be toured internationally, with minimal dialogue.

When they did that mini-musical at Anime Matsuri it had subtitles in projected in the background, but it was ... maybe 40 minutes long? As opposed to the 2+ hour musicals.

I just want some official subtitled releases or for them to release the LMF sub they had in theaters on DVD, since they insist on doing copyright strikes against the dubious Miss Dream subs which are better than nothing.

All three of those have been posted on gal pages lmao. Get over your victim complex and open your eyes.

Amazes me that people manage to get so butthurt over these random anon pages anyway. Half the time they're not even ran by anyone in the community.
Oh, replied to the wrong post. But yeah, Motoko doesn't get posted because she never posts outfits and Anais isn't active enough on social media. It really isn't a conspiracy.
Nah, just facts. I don't run these pages and I have no reason to defend them unnecessarily. I just think it's absolutely batshit retarded that people are out here feeling personally victimized because some literally who from South America or someshit doesn't know and post every single member of the gaijin gal community.

Grow up and act more like the plus size gals you admire- they're not on 4chan crying and wailing about imagined oppression, they're contributing to the community.
Excuses for what? How is it an excuse to tell someone to stop yellin and whining "O why they don't want me in x" why they don't have your blah blah blah" if you feel there's not enough representation of people like you then create a damn page yourself.

I very seriously considered complaining about >>10133733 as well, but decided there would be a strong risk of just being a whiny little bitch if I did.
Okay lads, I've got a question here: are there any 17th century LARPs in Europe that allow fencing with steel, HEMA-style? I'm a HEMA rapierist and I would really like this sort of thing (I realize that masks and gorgets would be absolutely required but the gorgets could easily be hidden in costume or even visible in the form of an officer's gorget; I'd be willing to simply put up witht he mask which I don't see as more offputting than boffers).

Even a boffer-based one would be of interest as long as the boffers were thrust-safe.
Does reenactment count? Since there is a 30-years war event in Grolle this year. The event is attended by hundreds of fighters and reenactors.

What's up with horrendous shipping costs? Put the fucker in an envelope.
hey at least you actually get what you paid for. Not, for example, pay for it and never receive anything.

So what’s the best body to have as a male cosplayer?

This was my first cosplay and I was mostly worried that my body type was too small/not enough muscle. Trying to bulk up or tone my muscles for the next ones.
It's ok, you're not thin in a gross way. Just eat a lot of healthy carbs+proteins. Bulk up.
You'll look better in the future but you can cosplay just fine now.
Honestly you have the perfect Link bodytype
Gross. Get a tan or at least go outside a little bit.
