so i know carneval is in like 3 months and it's too early to worry but i am torn between crossdressing again or the haloween costume i made for this year that a) looks good and b) took me like 4 months of tedious work to make and is thus sacred to me, but it's unwieldly and easily fragments due to the limited choice of material i had to achieve what i wanted but i mean i can't just wear it oncr and shelve it man.
on another note i need to stop getting stoned every night
>Is there an age where you consider yourself too old to do this?
No, largely depends on your proficiency in self-care, makeup, choosing the right outfits for your size etc.. As the other anon pointed out, people today have much broader possibilites to take care of themselves and visibly age much slower than decades before. So use it to your advantage.

Also admittedly, if you're being serious about it, it's becoming pretty expensive quickly and most people in the west don't make decent money until they're in their mid to late 20s, so yeah....

It's only weird if you make it weird. Figure out what suits you and what you can get away with.
Are you a kraut? Also for carnival I would honestly consider points like practicality and durability. I'm going to assume you'll be out with friends and drink a fair bit, possibly over the course of multiple days as well, so I wouldn't go for anything too intricate, but for an outfit with good wearability. Also it's likely going to be cold af especially at night, so think of options on how you want to keep you body warm.

Any specific costume you have in mind?
not kraut but it's also way more casual where i live and that is a good thing for anything fragile. Eagle warrior, full feathered headdress, pheasant, turkey and seagull. plus tons of reeds and shells. It's a showpiece man anything else is so casual
...plus it will be the first time plenty of people will see me in costume and i need to assert dominance

How was Holmat? Anything interesting happen?

Anyone keeping an eye on the cosplayblackbook IG for the latest drama?

Any future plans?

Yep. Oh, and while still on the subject of parties, this is the only time I can think of where people were charging for drinks. Something tells me that's not even legal

Jesus Christ, I know some of the cosplay community can be “UwU sof” or whatever but you’re gonna let some obvious Normie bust into a hotel room someone paid for and start insulting people?

I don’t wanna sound like a “Mr.Tough guy wannabe” type but if someone did that shit to my friends or myself some hands are likely gonna get thrown.
>Everybody's drunk
>Assumed they had free reign to party without being bothered
>Hotel staff immediately start hassling
>Cops called in
>Everybody being corralled from one spot to another
>Some weirdo in a suit pops in saying he's the manager
I'll give the benefit of the doubt this time and say it was confusion more than weakness
Thoughts on the HolMat guests so far? Seems like a lot more “variety” style instead of cosplayers
By variety do you mean vtubers?

Master Roshi with boobs stands out in my mind, though I haven't gone through my album yet.
I couldn’t get the shotgun in the umbrella, so you gotta use your imagination. The shoes hurt like a mother fucker! I was told a Revy was walking around but never found her.
Mine would definitely have to be this Onion Knight. I was able to get his picture while he was having his portrait done by Bob Ross.

Lmao fucking westerners
this cost me under 50€, You do not need expensive fabrics, paints, materials or anything. You do not need a 3d printer, paper mache is good and effective, feathers you can just find laying around at the zoo. Shells are in the ocean. Reeds are on the water, it's all so simple god damn.
I cosplayed as one punch man for years and always get hundreds of people asking for pics I don't think she's right at all
real cosplay winning is when little kids want photos with you.

>it was my understanding it's a bunch of separate companies doing their own thing
They are, I just assumed you were working for one of the big JP corps which is why I made that comment.
For the clothing companies, I'm not entirely sure how the process works. They should have given you a vague range for when you'll be compensated.

Is there any place for cis-men in cosplay hobby?
Girl cosplays are far more popular and look better, and they even are better at cosplaying male characters like pic.
Outside of few specific cosplays like Walter White, Goku, Kratos, etc what can guys even do?
Aesthetically males are like the inferior sex so in a visual hobby like cosplay they're redundant (this changes for male models but that's like 1% of men)

And I have used some STL files from others but I have also made a number of my own in blender and other softwares, although it’s sad that foamcucks really have to reach this far to try and make a point

You think women are manning those show stealing Darth vader, optimus prime, warcraft, vash stampede cosplays?
All but Vash, seen too many trannies er I mean “sof bean boi’s” cosplaying Vash recently
The new vash ? Yes

Meanwhile the 1997 vash is exclusive to chads

Where can I find socks like this? They're like socks and legwarmers all in one.
Damn I hadn’t heard they were closing permanently. I checked their fb page and they recommended The Cospaly Pros. Apparently they use the same manufacturer and sell the same density foams
Ntayrt but you need to get some common sense lol. You don’t have the skills to make something yourself, you don’t seem to want to learn, you expect this very specific item to already exist, and you’re doing this all at the last minute so you can’t commission someone? Just accept that your cosplay isn’t going to be complete in time for whatever con you’re going to. Then go commission someone so you have it in time for the next con
No I'm wondering if it's something I could reasonably try my hand at, and if there's anything out there that could act as a decent starting point.
Im making a Casey Jones mask out of HDPE. Are there any tips or suggestions about how to best form the inside for my face?

Should I paper mache cast my face to use as a starting inside form that I can carve adjust with a hoof knife after its finished? Is hdpe a stupid idea?

CCC #2 Repent Edition

What recently mischiefs have you done recently? Or plan on perpetuate on your next innocent victims.

Me: Ask someone if I can play Street Fighter II on the SNES classic. It was a close match manage to win, He was getting ready for a rematch but I say thank you and prepare to leave, He leaves first. Also after that pick up some free posters that some left of the consoles table and I leave.

Also repent for being lazy and missing 3 cons this year.

Come on guys at least try to make these sound believable.

I can assure you most weebs think you're cringe too.

Anyone doing else doing the January LA anime cons of ALA and Anime Impulse on back-to-back weekends?
Is anime impulse any good?
I go just to people watch cute Chinese normie chicks at the Asian American Expo.
I'd only say go if an artist you like couldn't be at ALA or if you're local.

Otherwise no reason really.

Films/tv shows that are based on cosplay/con culture or at least reference it in some way.

I felt that 2Kawaii4Comfort was (for better or worse) the most accurate description of going to a small con and having a bad time at it. It's a shame it ended on a cliffhanger.

I watched this and showed it to all my friends, it’s genuinely pretty funny

The BPD breakdown episode was kinda cringe though but still, very entertaining writing the whole way through
I do agree that it's pretty funny!

Also, there are very few bits of media that make me cringe so hard that I physically can't watch it. The Rita-Chan breakdown at the cosplay contest is one of them.

I finally got around to watching every episode of Geek Love.

The last episode had a surprise Chad at the end

SPOILER: The dude gets multiple dates (even had a chick RUN to be the first to date him), moves out his mom's house, and starts a whole new life. Fuck yeah, random nerd guy.

A lot of these episodes weren't success stories, so I have happy this series ended on a high note.

Any doll collectors here? I personally miss the times when EGL was more closely connected to the BJD/doll hobby so how about we have a doll thread. Some questions to get the ball rolling:

>What kind of dolls do you collect or like to look at?
>Do you like to connect the doll hobby to your love of lolita fashion or do you keep them separate?
>Do you sew for your dolls? How about other crafts?
>Any grail dolls?
>Any lolita brand collabs you like?
>Any favorite doll brands?
>Any seamstresses/other doll hobbyists you particularly like?

thanks anon! I’m trying to learn more about what people like to do with their dolls and gauge whether it’d be worth it for me before I take the plunge on an expensive doll, so this is good to know
this is why i am glad these dolls are customizable. I suppose the only problem would be if you disliked the sculpt itself, but in that case selling it would be best.
Hopefully this isn't too off-topic for the thread, but if anyone here makes doll clothes/accessories for sale, what's the best platform to advertise them on? I would like to eventually start selling miniature doll rosaries I've been making in my free time. I also make human-sized rosaries, my idea was to help people twin with their dolls and so far I've just been including them as freebies for customers who are known fellow doll collectors.

>What kind of dolls do you collect or like to look at?
I currently have a Little Monica, Doll Chateau & SummberBird BJD dolls that I got years ago when I was very active and young, It was around the same time I discovered lolita, but I was like 15 so dolls ended up being my hobby to actually commit for

I recently got my dolls back after several years as they'd been at my mums since I moved out, and it re sparked my interest in BJD again!

I also got my first vinyl doll this year when my partner was visiting family in china, they had a Tiny Fox - Summerberry doll on sale in a nanjing hobby store (he sent me photos of so many awesome DC displays there too), I think she's pretty cute! I'd never bought a doll with a faceup or fullset outfit before it is so much more simple lmao

>Do you like to connect the doll hobby to your love of lolita fashion or do you keep them separate?
I think they are somewhat aligned for me, I never had lolita styled dolls but since wiping mine fresh I have been set on the future goal of being able to twin with them ! (or at least try)

>Do you sew for your dolls? How about other crafts?

Smaller chested cosplay ideas??

Alright this is my first post so please go easy on me but I’ve been thinking about what my next cosplay should be but I’ve run into a bit of a dilemma ig. It seems that a lot of the characters I like, like Super Sonico, I am unable to cosplay all that accurately bc I… lack the upper body for it iykwim. So I was wondering if y’all had any ideas for smaller chested waifus to cosplay?? Any and all suggestions are welcome, just trying to get some ideas, have a great day y’all :D
10 replies omitted. Click here to view.
This is a retarded question. no one is expecting you to have super sonico level titties and I barely know anyone that does. You need to be over 18 to use 4chan
I don't think pretty much anyone will care if you don't have the same cup size as the character you're cosplaying, and if someone does, fuck that person. Also, cosplaying might help your self-esteem; I always feel more confident about myself and my body in cosplay. Of course, the most important part of cosplay is to have fun, so do whatever is the most fun for you.

if you’re looking for flat chest cosplay inspo i love milkys.cos on instagram. i’m also flat chested and would never wear fake tits. embrace ur body!!

My predictions:

>Mitsuri from Demon Slayer (her arc comes out in spring)
>Vash Stampede for guys

Now that Scott Pilgrim got an animated series, will Ramona Flowers ruin another generation of women?
No idea if Zenless Zone Zero will be as big as Genshin Impact, but some e-thots will definitly cosplay as Nicole
Are Frieren and Maomao popular enough to have cosplays in the west this year?
There was only one Frieren at the con I went to last weekend but people were talking about the show in almost every panel I went to. I think it's too new right now but there will definitely be more in the spring and summer, especially considering how easy some of the outfits are.
I saw a few Frierens and Maomaos, I expect next years cosplay trends will include them.
JJK was huge second half of the year, anime boost is no joke.

Hey folks
It's going to be my first time as a vendor in an artist alley. I'm doing Connecticon and I was wondering if anyone has any experience having a table there? Do they allow selling of fanart? And I guess just general if you have any tips for someone's first time selling at a con.
>first time
>doesn't even know the basics

you're selling computer generated imagery thinking it'll make you easy cash, huh
