How old is too old?
Do many people cosplay beyond 35?

Can't you search the archives before asking this damn question for the hundredth time? I'm 38 and never stopping. Fuck off.
>>
I feel like the real reason you see less older people cosplaying is they just get bored of it or move onto other hobbies.
Not many people care if you keep doing it, just less and less stay interested over time. I'm getting close to 30 and I am getting less interested in elaborate showy stuff, but I can see myself getting back into it if my kids someday would like to. That would be a lot of fun.

cellulite is not related to age and bras easily hide sagging.

why are men so dumb?

>>10272911
I agree. I just go to Dragoncon and horror cons now and both draw older crowds so I don’t feel as out of place. Can still do other weeb shit in my free time.

I'm moving to an apartment that doesn't have a nice, big closet

anyone have cute storage/wardrobe pictures to share that don't include a closet, like in OP's photo?

I'm really worried about where to put all of my stuff with no closet...

You can get a stand-alone closet bar from Ikea.

I have one but I was hoping someone would have more cute pictures, as the one i have only holds maybe 20% of my clothing (I have a lot of clothes) and I'm wondering what to do when I won't have a walk-in closet to fall back on
>>
>>10273169
Ah yeah, I have the same problem actually. I have a closet but it's tiny. I'm considering just donating more of my normie clothes because I don't like them as much.

>>10273094
I was also going to say storage bix, and if the bows are on headbands then maybe something like a CD rack could help hold them upright.

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.

I want to do some trap cosplays but I am nearing 30. I am very feminine featured, tho. How often do you see men in their thirties who are still able to look cute and sexy? I imagine it is rare.

Cool story bro. Read up on the history of hentai and the concept "sex sells" some time and you might learn the actual reasons for fanservice.
>>
>>10271788
Youre really stupid if you think you can go to japan and fuck a 13 year old. That number is the base age of consent. Each area has its own age in place which is usually 16-18. If you look up base age of consent for the united states it says 12. Thats the lowest it can go, but that doesnt mean any states have the age of consent that low. Shut the fuck up about that 13 year old shit pedo.

Don't bother trying to search for non host hotels right now because everyone who didn't get a Marriott room is scrambling for the hotels closest to the hosts.

Best thing to do now is check back around March when the hotel frenzy fully dies down and when cards start getting charged and rooms get dropped.

Holiday Inn. Staff was friendly, they loved our cosplay. Free breakfast was awesome.

>>10268453
Holiday inn is great. My old ass can actually get some sleep since the loud children stay in the host hotels. In my years of attending I've learned that none of the host hotels are good, and the small surrounding ones are where it's at. Having a chill spot to change and nap away from the noise is worth the walk.

Almost a month out!

Does anyone else with BPD cosplay? I like doing it because it feels like I'm wearing a "mask" almost, like I can be somebody else entirely for a day or two.
3 replies omitted. Click here to view.

I've got AVPD and an eating disorder and both combine to make me constantly convinced that the moment I step outside everybody is staring at me and judging me for how disgusting I look. Cosplay and lolita both help me deal with that because they not only make me look different from my usual normie self but also let me go "people are only staring at me because I'm dressed in a funny way, not because they hate me as a person".
>>
>>10272241
This is exactly how I feel in Lolita. I can just say it's my clothes making people stare at me and not because I'm a huge stain on the world.
>>
For me, it's the opposite. I don't have any issues talking with people in daily life (quite the opposite I enjoy with everyone, even strangers) but I get very anxious when cosplaying.

Oh, and no BPD.
>>
my cosplay username online is a direct reference to bpd. so. anon know i love you.
>>
I have BPD and get SO anxious in cosplay. It's a mixture of "I'm dressed differently", "People are going to be looking at me", and "I look god awful in photos". I compete, too, so I'm constantly nervous that something will fall apart or someone will break something. But I still do it because I love costuming and cons are one of the best place I get to showcase that. Plus I've met most of my friend group through it.

Old thread hit image limit >>10153495


This thread is for ouji and aristocrat (aka "boystyle") discussion. "Boystyle" is shorthand for "boystyle lolita" and refers to the masculine counterparts of lolita and, often, aristocrat fashions. There is a lot of overlap between these styles, and different people use different terms to describe them. So, consider this a thread for those whose style is on the right half of Buttcape's Lolita Family Triangle: http://www.kawacura.com/moripress/wp-content/uploads/2015/06/0dmmLH6-350x350.jpg

People say this about every con and the answer is always the say. If your friends are going and it's the only game in town people will go no matter how big a shit show it is. When the choice is between a poorly run fan event and not doing your hobby and seeing your friends people make the obvious choice. There is never going to be any quality control in cons so it's just something you get use to.
