/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.

I think it was during a time when the market was more open to brand in general and not as oversaturated desu. She sold one of the dresses to me which I then sold again eventually, not sure what happened to the others but she's always had a knack for selling secondhand too. All I know is that she has no main pieces left from that lucky pack.

I bought a christma-y nanchatte set from them. the clothing was super nice and the cardigan super thick, weighty and nice feeling. only complaint was the skirt had a black slip/underskirt (and it wasn't needed, the skirt was a decent thickness). the circumference of the underskirt was way smaller than the skirt itself, so I had to remove it so my hips had room. definitely recommend them.

Very on topic for this thread, but I just washed pic related for the first time and some of the red dye transferred to the white collar despite using like 7 color catcher sheets. I washed the waist ties first as a test and the sheet I used didn't have even a tiny bit of transfer so I thought I was in the clear, but I suppose not. Thankfully the sleeves are detachable so they were spared. Any idea on how to go forward getting this pink staining out of the collar? I'm super bummed.

I use rit color remover powder on a red solid AP OP that bled pink on to the white collar, not sure if it will affect the print but it may work

notyourhime.h had an insta story recently about using dish soap to get bleeding red dye out, but unfortunately i don't remember the full details of her method. try googling about dish soap, maybe you can find more info.

I don't think I've had $15 champagne that was decent, but we also have crazy import taxes here for alcohol so everything is inflated I guess.

Cupcake prosecco definitely isn't terrible and it's like 10 bucks at most grocery stores in the US. Kriter blanc de blanc ice is basically a cheap version of Moet Ice and it's $15 and pretty good. I guess being a Burgerlander isn't the worst all the time, at least we can drink decent bubbly for cheap to forget about the whole no healthcare thing.

>>10508667
Thanks for the recommendations anon, I'll keep a lookout for those. It'll probably be like $30 here after import taxes. That comment about healthcare, oof. Take care out there anon.

she wasn't really behaving in a proper way for a queen, her mom and big bro tried to warn her a lot abour it, knowing full well it was given her haters ammunition against her. Louis XVI was a good man, he was too nice/weak to really ask his wife to act in a proper regal way. They were not monsters just naive/weak. They never received the proper education to prepare them for their jobs. Louis XVI weren't the first in line in succession for a long time and Antoinette was one of the last children of Marie Thérèse and she was very spoiled. And they did surround themselves with a bunch of parasites to not help their cases.

It's like if Paris Hilton became president somehow. Like of course shes going to fuck up, rich party-girls always do
>>
>>10507086
She was honestly not even as bad as you are describing even for the times. It really was just because she was Austrian and the resentment that society had for the visibly wealthy which was understandable. She was interesting in that while she didn't do anything to support systemic problems (which wasn't her job or what she was educated for) she would often offer help when she came across poor people in person, like paying for an orphan/poor child's boarding and doing other small favors for the poor. The government had problems but there is a ton of misinformation and lots of rumors that don't really give an accurate account of what she was personally like or her actions since there were a lot of phony scandals and stuff. She wasn't perfect and fuck/eat the rich and all that but she probably did as good a job as queen as the average teen to 20s young girl her age would have given they were trained as royalty and grew up with wealth.

The GOP in the Senate decided to fuck over Americans again and not give any support/protection for job loss and etc.

Sadly, a lot of Americans are struggling to pay rent/medical bills/find employment so "fun" hobbies get pushed to the side

For those of you who sell various sizes of prints, if you have, say, 11x17s + 5x7/4x6 postcards, do you just send them in a tube? I'm a bit worried/paranoid that the post cards will be really hard to flatten out.

Cardstock is pretty hard to flatten out, so I rather have it shipped as a separate envelope than rolled into the tube.

absolute hell. Cosplayers don't want to be your friends, just take the goddamn photo and pray to god they're not going to tell their friends about how shit you are. also, dont. I repeat. Don't fucking date cosplayers.
