• 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.

I'm getting a new pair of glasses in some days after years of not wearing any because I don't think they're really cute. Any pics of any cute jfash with glasses would be greatly appreciated to get me out of this mindset!

Also, do you wear glasses? Do you think you can make them look cute/amplify your coords? How do you get around them making your nose bigger?

Why wear glassed when lenses exist
>>
>>10597932
This is probably bait but some people just can't wear contact lenses, for medical reasons, because their prescription is too strong, or because of sensitive eyes. And some people just prefer the aesthetic, the right glasses are very flattering on some people.

Hey I really want to find sleep masks that are silk, cotton or some other nice material. I don't care what substyle of lolita the mask would be I just don't want dollar store/wish quality masks that are plastic-y.

Does anyone know of a taobao or brand that makes sleepmasks? Pic for inspiration, a collage off google images. I like the magenta/black one but all the available colours are gaudy.

>>10597846
>Where is the line drawn between kogal and namchatte? Just the make? Or other elements?
The make is the most distinctive line, but generally Kogal is very "off-campus" vibes vs. Nanchatte's "in-class".

>Do you only wear nanchatte, or do you use your pieces for kogal as well?
I think all the seifuku brands can be used for both styles- don't think there's much of a difference anymore. Kogal makeup is too heavy for my taste so I stick to regular nanchatte.

>How do your brand pieces hols up against off-brand pieces? Have your off-brand items worn down quicker, or are they just as sturdy?
There's a reason why CONOMi stuck around as long as they have and Kuro-Ori is just as good too. I may a different definition of "off-brand" so this question might need clarifying because I'm not sure what you mean by it.

>Why do you wear nanchatte?
I like how youthful I look in it but also professional and put-together, like I have a future ahead of me. The idea of a J-fashion that's made for daily wear but still very J-fashiony also appealed to me. Surprisingly anime/manga had little to do with it.

They have been doing this to AM for years....like since 2014.....and it's STILL running. You'd think they realize how fucking stupid they look by now.
>>
>>10597541
AM is extremely shady as a business though, always has been.
The owners just think they're being smart by exploiting loopholes, but loopholes and technicalities always come dangerously close to law breaking.
If the IRS ever came after them, they'd be screwed.
The con would still go on though. Everyone forgets the government can't take money you don't have, so they usually let you pay off over time.
>>
>>10597609

What's the complication?

Why would the IRS be chasing down cons?

Is management using it as a personal slushfund and writing off personal expenses as con expenses?
>>
>>10597682
>What's the complication?
Oh, there's just a lot of stuff that a regular business owner gets wrong because they don't understand legalese.
Like when you run multiple businesses (like AM does) then when you bankroll one business with funds from another (totally legal) there's specific procedures, and you have to report it a certain way to make sure the irs understands what you're doing. It's to avoid the appearance of money laundering. But a lot of people don't do it because it doesn't occur to them that criminals also do that to cover their tracks.
>Why would the IRS be chasing down cons?
99% of cons will never show up on the IRS radar. They don't make enough money. AM is a little different because they take a lot of business trips to hawaii and japan. Those will be flagged for inspection. They're probably making vacations of it, but the fact that they also actually do business (get contracts signed, launch evens, schmooze industry guests) will cover most issues.
Remember, most irs audits don't actually find anything wrong, but most people are woefully unequiped to handle an audit. They lack the papertrail.
>Is management using it as a personal slushfund and writing off personal expenses as con expenses?
Oh, no doubt, but a con business the size of AM actually has a legal defense.
It's like real estate. They can write off a ton because they're basically always on the job. The car they lease, the clothes they buy, it's all about building an image.
The thing that'll most likely fuck AM over if anything is payroll. How they handle it, who handles it, etc. Their books are almost non existent, which isn't a sign of guilt, but makes it nearly impossible to defend against accusations.
Matsuri is a multi million dollar (in revenue, yearly) company. Despite this, their profit margins are fairly low. They'd be considered a small business by any standard, and some banks wouldn't give them a loan based on this size. So odds are they're under the radar
>>
>>10597609
The con is still running...we gonna do this in 2021 too? You do realize how silly you look, yeah?

THIS year will be the year, right? Pfft.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CppkSWRdVTo
yes thats why our old age people are being beaten to a pulp.
it's why it's legal to lie about where products come from, unlike the States (our farmers markets are full of grocery store products)
the universal healthcare looks like this even precovid:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UIOHKrfzJzI
We have to pay for parking with that universal healthcare and dental is not included. Also going between provinces will mean that you are SOL for medical aid unless you pay.
They dont care about what is in our food: see like 100s of other cbc documentaries on it.
And the third world shit is bad. We have a lottt of homeless people and the economic collapse is going to be much worse in Canada if USA goes through one.

Jesus fuck you really are a retard.

Third world countries have better covid infection rates because guess what. Unless you test for it, you won't have high infection rates!

And especially in countries with completely different demographics where your population is largely young, it's barely a blip on them over their dozens of other higher causes of death.

Wow they do indeed attract unwanted attention and present a PR nightmare with their presence and very vocal nature, the biggest problem is when enough of them establish a foothold in a game. They will actively try to leverage their power and numbers and create a hostile environment for those who the consider undesirable, actively attempt to recruit, and eventually fuck up everything.

Alt right idiots are like Vegans and Furries, and simply can’t keep their douchbaggery to themselves.

I hope the police was able to do an investigation about the hate crimes.

Aren't there very specific guides on what to wear/act/say though? or do they just assume since its a village of the XX century that they're going to be vikings or crusaders?

The headlight smasher got caught because the park had security cameras.l but was only charged with destruction of property and tampering with automotive signal (yeah, thats a thing).

In hardcore living history, sure, but they attract a higher level of education a socialization, and are not the problem. We’re talking kitchen sink larps and boffer games primarily that have a bunch of vikaboos and crusadiots from /pol/
