/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.

4 weeks lockdown of Boris Boi's plan.

Still nothing happening except 'Virtual Cons.'

Any news/plans for 2021, Brit Anon's?

If the tier changes you’d have to tell half the attendees not to come and refund them or something. On a lottery system probs.

It’s not worth the financial risk to run at all in those circumstances.
Tiers 1 and 2 are effectively the same - 50% capacity or 1,000/2,000 people max capacity whichever is lower. Provided the event assumes worst case Tier 2 and does it 50%/1000 people it works. This is due to the likelyhood that basically nowhere will be Tier 3 (ie: no events) by April due to the effects of the vaccines and warmer weather coming through by then.

Of course, the 1,000 cap completely screws over MCM, but not the smaller events. The only question is, is it financially viable to run at 50% capacity? I could see a few cons trying to renegotiate the prices they're paying for their venues if they only can get in half. Perhaps that'd help?
The real question is actually "is it morally right to run an event during a pandemic to make a quick cash grab when no other event is running?"

Substyle: garbage kei
nayrt but I doubt so because it looks a lot like the "mermaid" dresses releases by taobao brands a while back.
I don't give a shit if your favorite dresses are bodyline. Don't support replicas, they a shady AND look like garbage so you are wasting your money anways.
Replicas aren’t cheap tho.

Years of repression, misunderstandings of campaigns such as 'cosplay is not consent' - where the person simply drops ANY attempt to socialize at all outside of the convention floor, sexual memes and groups like in picture related. Our community is sick. People are repressed. People are tense. And if one tries to break out of the taboo, it's outright cancelled. This needs to be discussed.

The cons I go to almost always have speed dating. It’s the most sad/pathetic thing I have ever seen. It’s thirty guys, six girls that ar single, another ten that have been pulled in from the hallway that already have boyfriends.

I would rather just pay for sex. Less stress.
This entire thread is a perfect example of why you can't get laid, people.

I knew one guy who actually hit it off with a girl: very autistic, but he made it work anyway. He danced with her sister at the ball (guess the con!), she got mad, and then he TEXTED HER FOR A YEAR DESPITE HER NOT REPLYING.
That’s con dating events

Aside from the quality of the items being shit, she clearly has no idea what lolita substyles even are. Who told her she’s qualified to be guiding others?
Everything is these is ugly but the rosettes are the worst.
This isn't gothic tho?
Because they get to join her super exclusive Facebook group, obviously. I mean that’s gotta be worth like $100, right?

>Saved 70k tho in the last 20 months or so
>I want to be responsible
Niggy if you dropped $700 on burano it would be literally one percent of what you saved, no issue at all. You'd still be responsible.

Plus what are you even saving for if it's just making you miserable?
I just want a gf to be around so I’m not alone as much as I’m dying. Being in pain everyday was so much more tolerable when I had a Nice gf around
Finally got my waist back down to 68 cm and my BMI below 21. I tried on one of my tighter skirts and it fit well! I'm gonna keep working out and maybe I'll drop a few more cm. That'll give me more options with older clothing, so I'll work hard for that!

But fuck, I'm not ready for my stats test later today. It's been a difficult semester.

Ahhhh, good memories
>your bff who wears lolita will never love you back
i'm sorry fellow frilly anon it also hurts you. This fashion is amazing and makes me feel beautiful but it's a struggle for everyone who has ED tendencies/disorders. my heart goes out to you.

NAYRT but as a fellow based strahov library hunter I'll email you if I ever see the green one.

I wonder why AP has stopped releasing LL? It’s always the first size to completely sell out I don’t understand.
Tea Party tickets are up on the Paris site.
I do have an old hanikami bear bag I bought from AP like 3ish years ago. Maybe 2, maybe 4, idk. It was only like $110? And is pretty nice quality. Not as nice as my usakumya/kumakumya but it's still nice.

Does the anniversary milky bear even have posable arms/legs? I can't tell from the pictures
It sounds fun but at the same time I don't want to pay $50USDish for a couple hours of interacting with strangers over zoom...I can't wait for tea parties in general to be in person again.
The wings are posable kek

Do tattoos ruin cosplays or is it generally not seen as a big deal?

Any person can be an insane whore independent of the looks
Avoid girls and guys with neck tattoos. They're always batshit
She had 0 tattoos :(
For the most part I mentally filter them out the same as freckles or birthmarks that the character doesn't have. The only time it would make a difference to me would be on a contest entrant or someone posting one of those moronic edits where they're side-by-side with the actual character.
Girls with hair that long are absolutely the craziest ones though?

Haven’t had one of these in a while.

Oh I guess it was an I'm pregnant! lol so random kind of thing. I'm mildly relieved
>I live in America we say whatever
Yeah but I guarantee this poor girl is going to be pregnant by this old hick by the end of the year.

Weird how social media puts people from such different class backgrounds in contact. But personally if someone like this commented on my page I’d just delete it without making a public stink about it. Like scraping dog shit off your shoe.
Is her puppet circus genuine or a replica?
Her face looks shooped. Though I am genuinely sad for this situation. She's going to grow up regretting her life choices and divorcing him before she's 30 with two kids.

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
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.
What a waste of expensive pencils.

Where you can find all Kaya’s covers, YouTube.
He’s also done a self duet cover of Wenn Ich Tanzen Will from the Elisabeth musical, and it absolutely rocks.

How are you all holding up with all the cons being canceled?
Me and my guys do photo shoots. In other words we just take pictures of each other on our phones around town. Yeah, I know it’s not impressive, but it scratches the itch.
I resorted to watching cosplay music videos, Con vlogs from random ppl, yeah.
