[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.

>>10081568
That incel attitude is going to hold you back. People have all kinds of likes and dislikes, even people who look absolutely butt ugly to most of the world can be someone's type. A confident and friendly demeanour is extremely helpful too. Thinking this way is just going to keep you alone, or if you're lucky or conventionally attractive it may get you on several dates where the girls bail on you because you have a sad, bitter personality and aren't fun to spend time with.

Since the last one had a few bits of Dota sprinkled through it we may as well group all of the ARTS games together to hopefully keep things maybe slightly more active.

And here in Spain since tickets are spool cheap (people say 10€ for a day @ Japan weekend Madrid is expensive) the only way the organizers can break even/get some money is renting out a buttload of commercial stands(so,Spanish cons are basically huge dealers rooms) which mostly sell overpriced fake merch from Ali for 12yo kids whose parents don't let them buy online. unless it's a big con, there are barely any guests or talks, and they are rarely the big selling point for most attendees. Also, I'm not a cosplayer but I keep hearing about not so good prizes. But,hey, even your 100k inhabitants town can have it's own con for young weebs to wander around for 3€ a day!

I was so close to buying a ticket and going, but since it's the first time they're doing this I want to see how it goes first. Being stuck on a boat with a bunch of disgusting neckbeards orbiting one or two sluts and their Chad keeper sounds like hell. A huge party cruise sounds awesome though, just without the unshowered neckbeard swarm.

What are your worst cosplay experiences?

What are your predictions for J-fashion and Cosplay in the coming year? Which characters will be overdone, which coord combinations will sweep the Lolita community? Will Larme rise again or will a new Kei take over the lands of social media?

To start off, I think this might become a thing; Scallopets over OPs. It's probably been done before, but the idea could really expand a lot of people's wardrobe options. It also brings up the issue of print-on-print in Lolita fashion... Is that a thing? Will be come a thing? Fashion brand Hei Hei has been doing a lot of plaid-on-plaid in otome-type cuts.

going even further into my unrealistic pipedream, i think that if this were to ever happen i would need to collaborate somewhat closely with the developers of LM and lolibrary to integrate their features

it'd be a behemoth task, but when broken down into smaller bits it may be possible to pursue with a small team. my gears are a-spinnin. thanks for the ideas!
>>
>>10081505
speaking as someone who's lolita website went under after going several hundred dollars into debt; Do it but Do it at your own risk. Lolitas are hungry for a platform, for content, but they will not pay for it. Your pages will get archived because they don't want to have to see ads. Again, not saying don't do it, just don't do it expecting it will pay for it's server cost.
>>
>>10081532
Even if you make a nice platform, a huge issue you're going to run into is that no matter how nice a platform you make, unless you advertise it hard on Facebook/Vkontakte/Instagram/Twitter/Amino/etc you will be fighting an uphill battle to get people to migrate.

But if you do make it, please remember to include community and maybe event planning tools!
>>
>>10081537
Which was this? But yeah I'm not surprised, this is why I think optimizing an existing platform would be better. Like the r/lolitafashion reddit or an experienced lolitas Amino or something
>>
>>10081540
can't say, sorry. basically we needed the server we had for the amount of traffic we were getting but we never seemed to make back much through ads. we bounced between the black and the red and then we just started losing at some point and never bounced back. people would tell me to my face that they liked what was being done, but then would comment that maybe we should take those ugly banner ads down. Just, all I'm trying to say is that the lolita community is great to collaborate with, work with but they are not interested in funding any kind of a serious operation.

I have one of the old 'victoriangirldress' ones. That seller is long gone from ebay as far as I can tell, but it's basically a soft petticoat in a kids' size 10-12 - if you have a look on ebay for 'pettiskirt' there are a few similar ones being sold and if they have full elastic, they should be fine if you can fit in old-school skirts. They are shorter than most lolita petticoats (~35-40cm) which tends to be perfect for most old-school outfits.

It's that we don't have much charisma so even though the photographs are good quality and we were having lots of fun, we look happy yet awkward as hell in them.

Semi-related to this, but how accurate should I try to be for a first-time cosplay?

I'm still a bit terrified of cutting/styling my wig once it comes in and part of the attire won't be 100% spot on, if I can't get lucky at a thrift store/make the alteration myself and risk screwing it up.

As much effort as you are willing / capable of putting into it. You need be realistic with yourself and accept that not everything has to be perfect the first time around. Do what you can do and be proud of what you have done. If you manage to get into a conversation about your cosplay then congrats, you have a great conversation starter. Talk about what could improve and slowly work towards that goal.
