Closest place I know is weibo, it's a massive hotspot for asian cosplayers. Yes they do great quality photography desu

Asian cosplayers look all like a trainwreck IRL. They are literally made by photoshop. Any random western cosplayer looks better.

A thread for people who have been to Japan to reminisce and speculate about re-opening. I lived in Japan for about 2 years before the rona. There’s definitely shit I don’t miss but on the whole I really miss it.

What are your favorite things about your trip? What are things you don’t miss? When do you think they’ll reopen?

Oh I always go on a student visa so that I dont use up my tourist visa days. It costs a bit extra to go to schools that provide visas but desu some of them are notoriously lax, so you're basically just paying to spend an extended period of time in Japan. I work remotely in tech, so I don't really have to be anywhere in particular, so I abuse the student visa system to live in tokyo. Ironically, due to the high pricing in the bay area, I still come out saving money, plus I get national health insurance.

Wow recently read how a lot of businesses are closing down because of no money coming from foreigners
>>
>>10683676
You know that you can get banned for this, right? Even if you are enrolled in school Japan is notorious for banning people who abuse certain visa types, so don't be surprised when you get called for clarification and denyed eventually. Just letting you know to be careful.
>>
>>10684027
Well yeah. Despite Japan's reluctance to accept foreigners, a whole lot of their economy still depends on cultural exports and tourism. It's crazy, especially considering that over 80% of farmers are aged 70 or older. They have to make massive changes to their immigration policy or the loss of some of these businesses are just the tip of the iceberg.

Shit, that sucks. I'd be happy to throw money at them if I could.

I'm not in Germany so no

Looks like cosplay.com is back up and (partially) running after a few years of being shut down. No clue why it ever got abandoned in the first place considering it was never really dead, but that’s besides the point. Oldfriends will remember that this site was a pretty popular place to talk about cosplay/cons online before the rise of social media, so it’s nice to see it functional again. With the cosplay side of /cgl/ having been completely overtaken by coomers and mods/jannies who enable this behavior, I’m cautiously optimistic that cosplay.com can grow back a healthy population and be a place for cosplayers to just talk cosplay. Long form discussions don’t lend themselves well to Twitter or Insta, which is where most cosplay stuff is nowadays, so I think there’s space for a traditional forum in the cosplay community (which USED to be filled by /cgl/, but we can all see what this place has become).
Anyone have plans to use this site? Any stories from its heyday you wanna share?

It was the biggest one that had the widest coverage of anime/Japanese game-related fandoms/topics. Other sites like AnimeLab and ACP (god I think they were the "big 3" of 2005-2010?) had social forums but none was as big as Cosplay.com's. I might not even be recalling names correctly, it's been so long, but I remember AnimeLab (?)'s issue was the founders were using the money to fund their Christian missions and ACP had sponsored contests that disappeared by ~2010 and their coding is utter shit.

Advice on how to be Cosplayer photographers.
How do you like photographers to deal with you the cosplayer? Should I have a sing that says I am one or should I ask you directly. Or another way? What are some of the don'ts. Other advices for anything else is appreciated.

I feel like I'm posting the obvious but I've met too many lost/unsure photographers thay want to do Con photography but just can't get their foot in the door.
tl;dr - Be neat, be nice, don't be a fucken weirdo. Don't be afraid to ask a cosplayer if you can take their photo and don't be a bitch if they say no. It'll all be okay senpai, we're gonna make it.

I always make my con expenses back from doing shoots, and so can you (hopefully).

Ask for permission to take photos as usual, and then leave business card if you're looking to make a name.

also, as a cosplayer photographer, you should also focus on good -in character posing, portraits and have some nice photoshop skills on top of photography skills.
Be humble, don't be a creep

>Cosplayers aren't professional, are broke and you won't get anything from them
Thats not even remotely true. Plenty of professional cosplayers exist, and plenty of casual cosplayers want high resolution photos of their cosplay.
>>10684748
>All you need is a modern phone and you can do 99.9999999% of what a cosplay photographer can do.
Phone cameras are still nowhere close to professional cameras when it comes to portrait shots. Phone cameras still have terrible fake bokeh.
A photographer will also better understand how to make a photo look good too, and may have more software to create a more unique photo.

>>10683709
You'd be a god if you could. One of the most annoying things is trying to get the right angle when you aren't in control of the camera

lol I wear cargo shorts and look like a weeb and it hasn't affected me any. Just be good at what you do and word will get around. You can run around in a t-rex suit; if people know you do good work they'll be happy to shoot with you. People recognize their friends in photos you've taken and will ask them how you did as a photographer.

Bros. How do ask Vega cosplayers and cosplayers of sexy looking male characters pictures without looking gay. I saw this Vega cosplayers and he was with his girl, sexy cosplayer too but didn't care for her cosplay. So I didn't ask him for pic because it would gay if I am only ask him. Also question for the girls do you get intimidate by sexy male cosplayers. Or like cosplayers that show their chest?

How do you find the confidence to expose your nerdier side when you have social anxiety? Being more open about the stuff I like and losing all my friends and not bein able to make new ones is my biggest fear. I feel like I am going to have a heart attack just thinking about it.

I drop nerdy dogwhistles to see if anyone reacts. For example, I say that I minored in Japanese and that I studied abroad in Japan (which is true), the only people that minor in Japanese and study abroad there are weebs, so just about anyone that's a weeb will go "oh, so you're a weeb?" just from that info. After that, I mention I'm into sewing (which sounds feminine but really doesn't have to be; if it's a dudebro, dress it up as you like to make custom streetwear). Sewing + being a weeb is a flag for being a cosplayer/interested in it.

Another common method is to bring up more normie examples and then drop progressively more and more "deeper" examples. If I like to game, I'm not going to come out and say that I like to play something niche, I'll start out with Call of Duty and then talk about niche-r and niche-r examples.
>>
>>10685357
Honestly normie don't cares, and on the opposite are sometime curious about those kind of creative hobbies. Just don't be creepy or obsessed about it.
If anyone would make a fuss on a hobby, then it's not probably a good friend to start with. Most people don't really care

Go into some online group full of nerds. It's that simple. Forums, chats, facebook groups, whatever. That's the easiest way to meet other geeks.

I'm sorry to come here with such a mundane request but since these gave me lolita vibes I might be able to find an answer here. I love these boots from ecosusi but they only go up to a 9. Would anyone have a recommendation as to where I could buy a similar pair in a size 11 and can be shipped to or within the US?

You shouldn't be making your own thread for a question like this, you also sound new as fuck.

That aside, American Duchess are known to be appropriate shoes for classic (maybe gothic) lolita that are less normie than the pic you posted, go up to a US 11 and ship within the US. I would recommend.
