Actually even if you don't have two spools it'll still work, or at least, it worked fine on my super basic machine. You can just buy a seperate spool stand if your machine itself doesn't have two spools.

I'm making a corset that goes on the outside of my clothes. I have a 4way stretch vinyl on hand already that I'd like to repurpose, so can I iron mid or heavyweight interfacing to the back and treat it like a woven (interfacing will stop it from stretching)? I'd rather not buy new yardage if I can since I already have so much shit in my sewing room.

Does anyone know where I could find something like a floorlength petticoat for ballroom type of dresses? I have the problem that the shape of hoopskirts come through dresses, means I

these people aren't your friends, they're just using you to get closer to cosplay fame while competing against other vain uggos. Your real friends should be met through parties, significant life events, and better networking, not clients. I know a drug dealer who made this same mistake, and eventually he told me he doesn't hang out with clients, unless he's already friends with them before they knew about his business.
Plus, photography is a shit business, and normally photogs don't get taxed, so they shouldn't have a good reason to bitch and moan about a shitty business with shitty clients. It's business, bitch.
>>
>>10496446
this
always have a blacklist for bad clients
anyone I do research on who's said something bad about someone without any merit, I cut them off immediately. It's just bad for business, and you're just asking for trouble if you let them in, chances are they're going to be stingy too, so generally they won't make you money at all.
The good photographers I've come across(very rare) treat it like a business and cosplay shoots are a very small minority in their clientele, the bad ones are just people who drift around the cosplay community mostly with unsuccessful and awkward motives, or just doing it as a hobby more than anything.

Generally photography in cosplay community is a meme. My friends and I would crack jokes about a funny friend of ours who has a pretty mixed reputation in the cosplay community for trolling all the time but he's actually a chad, we'd be like "10 years from now when we bring our kids to anime conventions we'd see a photographer and point 'eww a creepy photographer', and when we recognize it's our friend K, we'd tell our kids 'oh wait, it's K. Wave to uncle K!'."
>>
>>10505856
Depends on what a photographer is doing to get taxed, but a legit one, trying to write off expenses, will indeed be taxed, as long as they are being honest in their expenditures.
>>
>>10505577
it's always the one that is not paying for shoots that complain and trying to tell you what to do

cosplayers like telling photographers what they should shoot but people are not allowed to tell them what to cosplay

good advice in this thread, i'll kinda share too.

>yeah talk about the fucking worst combo in existence
absolute hell. Cosplayers don't want to be your friends, just take the goddamn photo and pray to god they're not going to tell their friends about how shit you are. also, dont. I repeat. Don't fucking date cosplayers.
p.s usually ero-cosplayers tend to be the chilliest people ironically.

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.

Hi Anon.
No, we are not. Of course, skipping a year puts a small dent in out income, but yearly costs are quite low.
We actually make good use of this year, restructuring a few things, maintenance on hardware, and preparing for different scenarios considering Corona.
If you follow our socials you'll see we have great plans for the years to come.

Haven’t had one of these in a while.

She's clearly not great at makeup in general. idk if she's trying to overdraw her lips or just doesn't know how to properly shape bold lipstick. Her blush/bronzer is also a full inch or two lower than it should be. That plus the wonky lips droops her whole face down.
