/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.

Visual kei thread, talk about visual kei bands and visual kei fashion. Also welcoming other J-fashion wearing musicians.

Based lynch.
Monochrome Heaven is home to some of the most annoying and perpetually spiteful and contrarian people ever, and if you're from MH you need to go back and stay there. Almost nobody there actually enjoys visual kei, they either repost news articles I can get on any Japanese music new site or talk shit on every band because they're the annoying hens who think being negative is "spilling the tea, sis".

I must have not seen much then since I'm just trying to use the site to sell some of the old VK I bought. Can't get rid of this UNiTE or DIAURA even if it's autographed.
You might be allowed to post it in the BST, I'm sure someone here would want it
Not a bad idea. Thanks for the advice.

what >>10370529 said.
some of the drinks will use real milk but the majority of the tea is done with non dairy powders because they're dirt cheap and last forever, unlike the (literal dozens) of gallons of milk they'd otherwise have to buy.
I owned a MM replica when I first "got" into lolita back in 2010 in high school. It feels so good to now buy an actual MM dress now. Just waiting on my SS to ship, hopefully it won't take too long.
It might be where you live, but all the places where I've been use actual milk for their boba. But that's because they just sell boba, and aren't those cheap donut store ones.
Interesting. I live in a cali college town with boba places out the ass (because there's ~30k asians here) but only the "Fresh Milk" drinks have proper milk in them. Everything else at all 4 or 5 places I've been to has been NDC. Maybe that's just how cheap college town boba is.
Seems really mentally sound.

I love the full range of pastels and all the ice cream themed accessories! It was really fun to paint.
Awe this is so cute. Thank you. Can I credit you? I want to use this as a pfp.
So glad you like it. And of course! My Instagram is in the top right corner.
nayrt but this is so cute! i totally want to commission you someday for a yumekawaii outfit
Hey anon, someone else interested here - could you post again?

You don’t have anything else to do, so make and post a cute mask.
161 replies and 24 images omitted. Click here to view.
How many layers and what size are your pieces before sewing? My pattern is way too big and I can't figure out how to scale it right. Pls no bully I suck at sewing and want a cute mask. I was doing 10 x 12 and folding it in half, 2 pieces this size so 4 layers. But it's too big even if I sew a big seam allowance
Maker of this mask here! ^o^/ I actually made a ton of different masks but Lace Market is being a bitch to me about it and deleted my listing for being "not lolita" :/ (after selling 5 already... wut?) If they don't let me put them up again and you want one, message MirrorMannequin on LM to see what I have ready or to get a custom one made! For everyone being picky about the ribbon, this was an example with ribbon ties and they were/are available with elastic too. (It's really about personal fit. Elastic cuts into my ears, but I can tie mine once and bend my ear to take it off without undoing the knot.)
that sucks. if >>10369937 is lolita, then yours is too. maybe if you make the main pic a coord example it will help? wishing you the best.
P.S. maybe they'd at least allow it on keimarket
That's like the saddest thing I've ever seen Moitie make. :x At least mine have fabric layered under the lace! Might as well make some coorded pics though, I'm dying for any excuse to get dressed these days. Kei market sounds good too, guess I'll try them next and hope people see. Might put them up on Etsy too, but they charge fees and I don't really want to have to overcharge cause of that.

never got to do one of these but i always enjoyed reading them.

post yourself, cosplay you'd like to do/have done in the past, give some context, and help others with suggestions.

as always, give suggestions in order to recieve them.

dropped pic
You'd look 12 if you weren't 130 lbs. You'd do best as Okdaira and Kiki if you don't want to show a lot, which is fine.
The entire bottom row.
If you are willing to lose weight I think you'd make a good Futaba. Not that you are fat but Futaba is really skinny & waif like. Those shorts are very unforgiving imo, but you could choose another one of her outfits, like the cargo pants one. The other choices are really nice too, especially Kiki and Akira.
I think the bottom right character would suit you best! Also the pic of you with the braids reminds me of Beverly Marsh for some reason, I think you could pull her off well!

We're all stuck in quarantine anyways, might as well make our rooms look nicer.

Post inspo, tips, etc.

To anon a huge while ago who suggested I kon mari my blouses, thank you, it was a lifesaver. So much more room.

It's pointless because AX can easily fall back on their refund policy which is clearn as day. You're better off waiting for the government to step in and force them to shut down.
AX is a non-profit those tickets you bought are a donation they don't have to do shit except make sure they don't keep to much money and spend it on something.
they are a non-profit and have no obligation to return a donation

Nostalgia time! Cosplay and event photos from the 00's (2000-2009). Stories are welcome too. I miss the time where was cosplay.com very active and no social media and instagram cancer like today.

>Women are quick to use cosplay is not consent shit even if you're just trying to talk to them
>just trying to talk to them
I used to be very open and friendly with guys at cons but dude I dont think you realize how many creepers, horny dudes trying to get a quickie or otherwise super off-putting guys there are at cons after women. Those retards ruined it for all of you.
And honestly in my experience there's only what I would call one "normal" guy for every 5 creepers that bother you, so yeah ofc women are gonna be flighty at cons. We ain't their looking for dick anyway, we're there to hang out with friends, shop and wear cosplays with said friends.
I feel like that's kind've a misunderstanding between male and female congoers, or at least younger ones.
Men are never "just trying to talk" to attractive women.
female too my dude. It's not even at just guys. I've seen girls freak out on other girls for simply complimenting their bead work on a dress where it was across the chest "my eyes are up here!". Tumblr children have ruined cosplay at cons basically.
young girl congoers are annoying though. someone yelled at my bf for "violating her personal space" in an event where we were all told to link arms.

Holy shit anon are you literally me.
You just described my situation to a T. I've tried 10000 moisturizers but they all feel like an oily/greasy layer on top of my skin and when I rinse it off my skin is dry again and starts flaking immediately. Even if I don't have black/whiteheads the pores on my nose/cheeks are super visible, I hate it so much. And this is not some 'only stands out to you' type of thing because people actually ask about them from time to time. Sigh, sorry I don't have any advice anon. Hope it helps to know you're not alone.
Since you guys started discussing derma rolling I got kinda intrigued, watched some youtube vids and was really impressed with what it can do. Especially a video of a Asian woman with a saggy wrinkly belly made a huge impact, her results were really amazing, bcause of that I definitely want to try it now. But where to start, I want to try body first but still no sure how long the needle should be desu. Some sites say 1mm other says 3mm, that's confusing for a beginner. Also, can this be combined with rf cavitation treatments? Cause I also want to try that as well once this whole whole corona thing blows over many months from now.
Your moisture barrier is compromised. You can't shrink pores but dry or dehydrated skin will cause wide pores to look even larger. You need to add moisture and ideally a occlusive to seal in the products!
I also recommend oil cleansing and/or a low pH second cleanser.
>Anyone else out there faced with the impermanence of their youth and hating it as much as I am?
it's probably my biggest mental issue right now to accept that i have wasted my youth
>8 dollar tax

Fucking yikes

How does that change the fact there are huge rep comms and that none of them care about peer pressure because they are adults?
there's a reason that people who support replicas stay in their own communities, they get shamed by the rest of the world. why do you think normies buy replicas they are trying to pass off as real? the stigma. there's not a single person i know IRL in any hobby, normie or weeb or whatever, that supports replicas or bootlegs of any kind. but keep believing that it's normal, anon. you're sounding more and more like a butthurt replica-chan wanting validation.
Ok, anon. Ignore the fact that hundreds of thousands of people support reps/don't care about pressure, and keep thinking your circle of IRL friends is a better sample. Reps exist in every hobby and rarely does anyone care much about their existence. Lolitas such as yourself are just especially autistic. Congrats.
even more would support reps if they were openly accepted by comms. banning them makes them frowned upon. people don't want to be frowned upon. it's not that complicated lmao.
>Reps exist in every hobby and rarely does anyone care much about their existence.
What? Authenticity matters a ton in every fashion community and lolita is no different. They literally sell certificates of authenticity for high end bags.

Are you Chinese or something? That's the only reason I could imagine you think off-brand garbage is normal.

Thank you!
As someone that lives in a country where students wear uniforns, is it more or less weird to wear nanchatte outside?
probably less weird because it sounds like a place where the public in general would dress up a little more. I live in an area without uniforms, and it's very "people of Walmart", so nanchatte would stick out. I think if you choose less standard, more vibrant colors and personalize it with fun accessories then it will look more like a fashion choice and less like an impersonation. Or the complete opposite, go for a more serious adult teacher preppy look. Or do what makes you happy.
I want to be an eternal schoolgirl even if i'm 26 so I don't really care what others think about it. Its a fun fashion and rarely do they think you're from some specific school, even less in the west.
same. though you get hit on if you live in asia, but some girls are in it for that.

Shipping to the UK isn't being suspended though, so you needn't have worried
I'm waiting on some airmail in the moment (continental Europe) which usually takes around 2 weeks, it's not looking great
That sucks anon, I hope you manage to have a good birthday all the same. What had you ordered?
SAL small & standard has been suspended completely. Just EMS & Airmail going to the UK for the time being (and surface mail, lol)
Your taste in FGO husbands is impeccable, anon.
Japan Post stated on their website that deliveries to the US are at minimum delayed for shipment by 2 weeks

I really love seeing well done handmade lolita
Please keep the thread decent and don’t fight or insult people
Take that to the ita thread not this

Mainly wanna just see amazing stuff people have made
If you made it yourself and want advice ask for it!

Also if you didn’t make it maybe tell who did? I love following hand makers so

Show off handmade wonders!

This was actually what everyone who gave concrit said too
Don't be you mean circle skirts anon :^)
is there any particular reference that a lot of people like to use as a guide or pattern for starting out?
Okay I'm the original girl who asked the pleats question and then promptly didn't visit cgl for two days and I'm so sorry for inadvertently starting that shit storm
Anyways I got my pleats right lol
It's not your fault. I hate when know-it-alls cause stupid bullshit like that, especially when they start claiming to be ~professionals~ and demanding everyone else prove themselves to defend their position. (You didn't cave and try to make a circle skirt, right?)
