/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.

Yes, perfect. Thanks!

>More handsigns that you remember so the tabletop rules can be raped into a larp ruleset. Actually forget the larp rulesets, just make a handsign for every fucking things that in the tabletop ruleset. (or in the meta larp make a character trait of how good you actually understand the rules, use that number to succed in anything BUT you have to use some retarded hand sign)
I'm definitely going to make some simple out of game rules that mimic the insanely complex in game Vampire ruleset, but I'm not entirely sure how to do it yet. My current idea is to use rock-paper-scissors with a bunch of modifications and special rules.

>keep us updated, I'm very interested in your concept
Will do!

>>10365670
Now, I not the kind of turboautist who larps VTM... But I have worked in French Quarter bars for a good chunk of my adult life.

And fuck do I have stories.

I wont spam them unless requested, but I will tell you that you're forgetting a stat that everyone takes a dump: venue relations. Make a metastat specifically for how much the particular bar or club they are in hates them, based on manners, tipping, ordering habits, and how much the other customers. Order politely and tip well? You get a bonus. Demand obnoxious non-menu mixed drinks and creep on the ladies near the bathroom? Negatives everywhere. High enough stats that you friendly with the doorman to beat the line, and the bartender's occasionally throw you a shot on house (both are great for impressing your obnoxious friends). Negative stats get you beaten by bouncer and banned from the premises.

>Negative stats get you beaten by bouncer and banned from the premises.

Especially if the players send IN game bomb threats to the restaurant who supposed to be in the whole thing but apparently isn't. Just so I can mention a totally random example
>>
>>10367540
>Make a metastat specifically for how much the particular bar or club they are in hates them
I like the idea, but I'm afraid it won't work with my setup. The current plan is to get a session room which is (both in-game and out-of-game) a small concert hall. Furthermore, since it's only a single-day one-shot, I want to keep the rulesets (especially the out-of-Vampire one) very light and simple.

I'm definitely going to write some drama regarding the owner/staff of the venue, though.

>I wont spam them unless requested
I'd like to see more activity in this thread, so I hereby request them.

>>10367607
>also may or may not called the cops on them
Good idea, and I even already have a police uniform at my disposal.
>>
>>10331796
Basically this.

My only thing with them is to triple check them during weapon checks because they very easily hide critical damage because of the way they look and are made. A guy with a claymore cut my head wide open, you could see my skull. The fiberglass rod core broke about 2 inches down, but the foam made it look fine. The foam was rigid enough that at first glance no one noticed the tip. But when its swung it would expose the core that at this point is shaped like a razor.

3 internal stitches and 7 staples. Our photographer was on site so she got some good shots with my blood sprayed everywhere so that's pretty metal. Our website banner was my blood covering a war axe for a fair bit.

Another funny thing. When I went to the ER I was drenched in blood and soaked though someones jacket that was tied around my head. They rushed me back and began immediately. Forgot to give me pain killer though. They shaved my head, cleaned the wound and started stitching before they noticed and doped me up.

I'd say 4chan as a whole is in that age range, if not younger. This board actually leans higher in age and is mostly women. It's just a term to throw around at the men on here who thirst after women and yet still shit on them, like >>10367707.
>>
>>10367713
1) 4Chan is definitely 25+
2) Scrote is literally a female incel term thats the equivalent of "roastie" that male incels use

This board is full of hateful incel women, its like the 180 of something like /r9k/

Would you agree that on average, the typical male cosplay is not as good as a typical female cosplayer?

If so why do you think this is? For me, I think a big failing point of male cosplays is no makeup and no/bad wig styling. Even a simple layer of foundation would instantly improve things.

What are other things men could do to improve their cosplay?

No vendetta on the OP pic. Just wanted to use that one since it’s ‘technically’ accurate but it just looks wrong and I don’t know why.

Important distinction- attention from men to female cosplayers? Generally not wanted. Attention from women to male cosplayers? Generally wanted. One of the most commonly asked cosplay marketing questions I see is women asking how they can get more other women to follow them and discourage thirsty dudes from interacting.

it's female majority and transparent maleposting is unwanted in the same way that "i'm a girl btw" posts are unwanted in male majority boards. if you're actually new, try lurking instead of bumping with retarded questions in threads that should be long fucking dead. if that's too hard and you just HAVE to ask a stupid question, there are literally stupid questions threads made specifically for spoonfeeding idiots like you.

>>
>>10367670
Don't feel like you need to rush! If you can, try to take your time and find something that you think you'll really love and wear often (especially since I assume you won't be getting out much for the foreseeable future) So many newbies scramble to buy their first dress and end up quickly realising that it's not their style at all.

Also, if you strongly prefer sellers close to you due to, e.g., shipping restrictions, definitely check out Lace Market/circlly - you'll more than likely find lots of sellers from your country.

Well boohoo, not my problem they can't dish out a mere 5$. In the end you're paying for something other people will ultimately get for free, imagine if stuff like Banshee Momiji came back but "it's actually really expensive in dias to compensate haha!" Doesn't matter, dias are free.
V0s contribute nothing to the game and there should be an actual distinction between paying players and freeloaders, if anything that'd encourage people to spend more. What's the point if there's no exclusivity and a poorfag can use the same gorgeous dress you have that they bought with Elex's free covid dias?
>>
>>10367283
You pay for the diamonds and get a suit as a bonus. Don't really see a problem with literal years old suits returning for crafting and V0s will never be able to get everything anyway even with their free dias. Also not like it matters since you don't "own" anything you spend money on in this game.

This thread is for ouji and aristocrat (aka "boystyle") discussion. "Boystyle" is shorthand for "boystyle lolita" and refers to the masculine counterparts of Japanese lolita and, often, aristocrat fashions. There is a lot of overlap between these styles, and different people use different terms to describe them. We usually just use "ouji" here.

What style of glasses would best blend into a gothic ouji coord?
>>
>>10367626
The most important thing for glasses is to suit your unique face, so don't feel pressured to pick something that is less flattering on you just because it's more style-appropriate: it won't be worth it. With that out of the way, maybe small round glasses a la Ozzy or Hellsing?
>>
>>10367626
the shape should flatter your face, and the material and color would ideally suit your general aesthetic
>>
>>10367689
>>10367687
The glasses that i have currently emphasize the feminineness of my face too much. I'm want to buy a new pair for ouji that would look good with the aesthetic, without taking away from it. I dont think my thick femme frames, while look great on my face normally, look good with ouji.
