Why does it matter especially with a new thread? If something gets deleted just look in the archive. There’s been nothing decent posted ITT so who gives a shit if it gets nuked and a new one replaces it? You have some severe autism if you genuinely care that much

True, may this thread get nuked then

Hot take, but maybe she used to trace before and now that she's making money off of her art she needs to be able to demonstrate that she can draw from scratch on livestream for patrons and such. Thus deleting all of the old work so there aren't any expectations of that ability.

Is it true if you have a 'creator' account ig will randomly cockblock a post to tank your engagement to get you to do something (pay them?) Or did I just bad a bad post time/tags. Tbh I want to go back to a personal profile bc looking at the statistics is kind of stressful but I love the primary/general messaging function.
>>
>>10402936
I’ve never heard of that but IGs boosting algorithm is a mystery all in its own. I have a creator account as well and enjoy analyzing my stats but I get what you mean about it being stressful. There are days where my posts are shit and to watch my stats go down is a real kick in shins for no reason other than “MUH NUMBAS”

What's my best bet for lining a HEAVY leather coat for wear in the summer? (It's for a cosplay and the way the world is right now I doubt I'll get to debut it before summer 2021)
It's going to be real leather and quite long, about knee length, so I expect it to weigh at least 8lbs when finished. The lining will be in direct contact with my skin so I wanted to avoid polyester. I do have the money to line it in silk however most silk is too lustrous for the sort of character I'm doing and I'm worried about the fragility of most silk weaves.
>>
>>10401975
Silk is the least breathable natural fiber and won’t wick sweat well, some weave of cotton is probably your best bet.

Any tips for wearing a silicone breast plate? Do you powder yourself and wear it on bare skin or do you wear a tank underneath, like athletic or moisture wicking fabric? How do you take it off with it snatching your wig cap (if applicable). Does the silicone on yours feel perpetually greasy? I got a tb pair that has that issue and the manu said its "normal".
>>
>>10401431
I chuckled
>>
>>10402814
You should wear it on bare skin. The sellers recommend using powder, but I found that for me it isn't a must. I think the breast plate should be the first thing to wear before butting on makeup and a wig.
Take this advice with a grain of salt as I'm a breastplate beginner as well lol
>>
>>10402897
Thanks, good luck to us both i guess. Do you do any shading on the breast plate with contour powder?

>>
>>10402511
I don't agree. After all, cosplay is dressing up as other people's OCs.

I think the only real issue with cosplaying your own OC is if you're trying to enter a cosplay contest with it. Many don't even allow OCs.
>>
I don't think dressing up as your own oc is cosplay. If you want to express yourself do it with your clothes and be the person you want to be or if you want to act do LARP. Cosplay for me is to dress up as a char from a known story because you love the story and the char and want to find people who also love it.
>>
I think it's fine, the word breaks down to Costume Play and wearing your OC's clothes is a costume. I've seen people at cons wear thier LARP gear or some random military uniforms with a mask so if they can do that, I see no harm in doing your OC. Just make it look good and maybe people will gain interest in your work.

Post some anime convention montages, either cosplay montages or montages about the con itself.

Old thread hit image limit >>10318530


This thread is for ouji and aristocrat (aka "boystyle") discussion. "Boystyle" is shorthand for "boystyle lolita" and refers to the masculine counterparts of Japanese lolita and, often, aristocrat fashions. There is a lot of overlap between these styles, and different people use different terms to describe them. We usually just use "ouji" here.

Jfash and lolita- I think I'm too old for cosplay now, which is a little disheartening...

Only small semi-local ones now, but I used to work for Anime Milwaukee for 10 years, and in my college days I went to Acen.

At one hand I'd really like cosplayer friends because most of my friends aren't into the scene and I'd like personal advice on things.

On another hand I'm a dude so I'm just gonna be assumed to be chasing e-coochie lol.

Oh man, I totally missed this but I see I didn't miss much. The only good artist on there that I've even heard of is kors k. I know of Moeshop from Spotify so I figured they were borderline normie shit and not something I'd actually expect to see at one of these. And before anyone says anything, I went in 2016 and saw Snail's House which was a pretty fucking great set.

If you zoom in on her prints in her actual shop you can see they are completely redrawn...the only pasting would be for continuation of patterns. It doesn't look to me like anyone else has looked that closely?

Snowpriestess was mentioned right above vanhoagland's link and does the exact same thing so...Isn't it safe to assume that the commissioners approved the sale of the prints? Otherwise they would say something about it. It looks like this is the only fanart she even makes, and it's paid. Anon asked for recs not a debate lmao

I don’t know about that pic but I have seen the dress advertised as lolita so it is possible that they may have tagged it that way too.

They are called neck ties and were a thing back in the 2000s on OPs, so if you want a dress with them that then you will be looking for something around that age.
