May I ask what you do with those pictures? I know a lot of people just come by and ask for a picture be it guys or girls. I just can't let go of the feeling that some people aren't up to anything good with it.
>>
>>10274385
I don’t know what kind of cons you are talking about to think that way but people who take photos usually post them on Facebook or the social media accounts for the con. When I went to conventions I would always take photos of really good cosplays or the people who dressed up as my favorite characters
>>
>>10274385

Well if it's a guy taking your pic hes gonna fap to it - no exceptions

If it bothers you maybe stop going to cons

That massively depends on where you work.
I know someone who works at a game studio and people literally come in in PJs and wacky shit.

I can easily imagine offices somewhere between that and corporate business on the continuum of seriousness, in which the outfits in this thread would be fine.

As far as I know, that shop has never gone under another name. It is just one person but they're very professional and knowledgeable. Not trying to be a shill or anything, it's just a good shop, especially if you live in Europe.

The way it works looks a lot like another store we have in the Netherlands. I know that that store stills exist as well, but I can’t find the website anymore, so I wondered if it was the same owner.

Maybe if you're super attractive and just looking for one night stands. If you're actually looking for a relationship you need to be confident, socially competent enough to be aggressive without being creepy, interesting enough that somebody might actually want to spend more than an evening with you, etc. Those matter way more than simple attractiveness too, just look at how many couples you see at cons where the girl's really cute and the guy is completely average.

Alternatively if you're a bit older and have you shit together and don't care about being a little creepy you can go for younger girls (I'm talking 23 year old girl with a 32 year old guy or whatever btw, not full-on pedo shit), but IMO that's not really a recipe for a fulfilling relationship, generally you won't have enough in common and younger girls who date older guys tend to be pretty high maintenance.

I feel weird about it too but there aren't a lot of other options if you're looking to date within the community. Finding somebody you like who also likes you is hard enough to begin with, and the 25+ dating pool at cons is pretty damn tiny so the chance of finding somebody you have that mutual interest with is pretty minuscule.

ITT: jfash monster coords from casual to OTT. monsters can be demons, oni, ghosts, undead, etc., but no fairies, angels, or elves, please. show me your scary-type creature looks.

i have about 50 pics to dump that will include masculine and feminine coords. i will start by posting more casual, punkish coords and some very simple outfits. i will post more elaborate coords along the way, up to full No.96-style with prosthetics.

please dump your own also!

what i like about this one in particular is how the shading of the mouth matches the purple makeup. o don't know if the mask came already colored that way or if this was done specifically for this look, but if you want a more glamorous image, brushing some eyeshadow onto the mask could be undone easily if you don't like it

i don't recommend blacking out your face, if you are going for a lolita type coord, but for something like pic related, it can add to the creepiness. black cloth can be a good substitute for face paint.

I feel like I rarely see people talk about Bodyline's cosplays (just their lolita) but I really like them. I've bought a majority of my premade cosplays from them and they've always been good quality for the price especially if you can hit them during a sale or on clearance. All of my cosplays I've gotten from them have been between $7-30. Some of them are made out of crappy materials you just have to really look at the pictures before buying but those are usually the dirt cheap halloween costume tier ones. They also don't have the best selection but if you're lucky enough that they have something you like then it's not a bad option usually.

I was wondering if this was a common occurrence with that seller. Sorry for just rambleing on.

>>10273806
Why would you go a size down instead of a size up? Sizing down means that your toes are gonna be jammed in there and your feet will hurt after a short period of time. Sizing up just requires thicker socks or more padding. Also I’ve never bought from EZ cosplay before but it sounds like it’s only no refunds if you email them asking for a commission. And jsyk, they’re an extremely overpriced Taobao reseller. You could easily buy the same items and have them shipped to you for 50%-70% less than what they’re asking for on their website.

Yup, you’re 100% right. And a lot of that has to do with the costume standards being a lot stricter for what they call ‘face characters’ than for OCs. Your ‘random Jedi number xyz’ costume is going to be much easier to get approved than Obi-Wan. Because you truly do not appreciate the detailed level of random bullshit on a Star Wars costume until you sit down to make one.
I’ve been involved with Star Wars costuming for about 5 years now, and having been a run of the mill anime/video game cosplayer before that, I really gotta say my favourite part about the SW costuming groups is how many resources there are. There are tutorials out the wazoo, detailed outlines for most of the costumes, reams of reference material, and if you don’t feel like making the bullshit yourself there is probably some 40 year old dude in a shed out in Wyoming who makes incredibly detailed replicas of exactly what you’re looking for.
It’s just such a different community.

She's not succeeding if so, that thong isn't even hot.

>>10272942
Because girls who cosplay shimakaze don't tend to be serious detail-oriented cosplayers. Also, a lot of them fake the thong, it's actually just straps attached to the skirt and that's hard to get right, especially with an off-the-shelf costume.

> so it seems like theyre trying to use the title as a gimmick as opposed to adopting the style
Let’s not forget that’s exactly how Babymetal started. I definitely think it’s something you grow into. If you don’t already listen to any type of rock/metal/hip-hop, then trying to get into it is more a gimmick than anything else. Also, Melancholiaah is more a gimmick than anything too. She started out as a “broken idol” per say when she started because she was done with the whole cute thing. But as time went on, it worked out for her because she grew into it and it just clicked.
>>
>>10274196
Not saying there’s anything necessarily wrong with gimmicks. It’s just unfortunate that we haven’t had anyone to truly embrace it and take it to the next level, a lot of the “alt idol” gimmicks seem half assed in the overseas idol world.
>>
>>10274183
I think it has a lot more to do with the idol culture. The use of calls, wotagei, the relationship between fan and performer, chekis, badges, etc. at events, a combination of singing and dancing, the types of personalities of members, and more. There’s a lot of components that go into calling a person or a genre “idol”
>>
>>10274183
Gotta agree a bit with this anon >>10274236
Being able to call yourself an idol deals heavily into the culture itself. I wouldn't call myself an idol if I covered songs in English because English music doesn't allow for things such as wotagei to be incorporated into it, and sounds off when it is. I get the ideal of doing translyrics and singing songs in English when you're not confident in your Japanese pronunciation, but it's always sounded a bit off to me hearing wotagei done to an original song that's in English.
Also the fan / performer relationships are also a big part. Chika idols interact a lot with their fans, but western singers are rarely seen doing things like handshake/hitouch, cheki sales, fanclubs, etc.

There's a ton of threads about bad photoshops, photog drama and the like. But let's try to do something constructive. Let's discuss something simple, what do YOU think is a good cosplay photograph? If you're going to pay money for a photoshoot, what exactly are you looking for in the finished product? Also, post photos of what you consider as examples of good cosplay photos.

Hobby photographer here, so far I've only done portraiture of friends but got pretty good reception from my pictures from Colossalcon East. Stuff like people after reaching out for booking a shoot, everyone asking for a business card, and then my pics getting reposted to some big aggregator/reposting accounts. So I want to dip into cosplay photography more.

How do you guys recommend finding cosplayers to shoot? If it helps, I'm in NY metro area and looking do to free shoots to build up portfolio.

ANYC is right around the corner so this is a pretty good time to dip your foot in.
Post over in the Facebook ANYC/ANYC photography groups (or whatever con you're heading to) about wanting to do shoots, you'll probably get a couple of people to want to shoot with you, especially if you're free. Just make sure you also include samples of your shots in the post.

How do you guys get cosplayers their pics/tag them when posting?

Considering getting business cards with some whitespace for cosplayers to write their ig. They would write it, I would shoot it and they can keep the card. Not sure if that's too cumbersome tho

It's already been said I guess, but yeah you should definitely use make-up! And don't forget to color your eyebrows the same color as your wig too. But talking about the wig, the quality looks horribly cheap so get a better one.
Maybe you can try also to pad your hips so your shape looks less manly. You could add boobs too, but that's up to your preference.

Yeah, how AX uses the entertainment hall is so wasteful. There's so much empty space between every section that I think everything there can fit into Kentia instead.
Moving AA to the entertainment hall would be awesome, actually. Sure, we'd be sacrificing the shopping location convenience by forcing everyone to choose between AA and the exhibit hall, but I'd rather have a better shopping crowd split and more comfort browsing through AA. Plus, more artists would be able to participate in AA since there'd be more tables.

It's kinda hard to compare apples to apples between Fanime and CRX. Don't get me wrong, I'm with you in wanting to see Fanime get eaten by CRX and taking that prime summer weekend slot in May. But as it stands, the two cons serve different purposes and functions: Fanime is 24 hours of normie parties and underage drinking. CRX is a giant commercial with substantial industry presence and actual content (which probably explains why it closes so early). They kinda compete with each other on the con circuit; but at the same time, not really. I don't know that they're really at a "two cons enter, one con leaves" situation...at least, not yet. This convention bubble is going to pop sooner or later.
