Alright everybody! What are your plans, What hotels are you staying at. Are you ready for the Georgia heat?

I did set the primary, I'm just paranoid af!
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.
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.
Hell yeah!

Con is less 2.5 weeks away. Based on the last thread, over/under 2.5 anons in attendance?
I came to /cgl/ to see if anyone was talking about this. I had a friend go a few years ago and said it was a shit show. Im just buying a ticket for saturday and am going to give it a try.
I dont really have a sense for what makes a con a shit show. I'm just going because I live in the area now.

Give me your best bad cosplay makeup finds! I'll start off with some of my favourites.

it's reconstructive surgery anon, they're not just ripping off their parts
Fuck off, he-she.
creating a reeking pus-filled eternal frankenwound out of a dick is not reconstructive in any way
I don't think it goes the way you think it goes
This isn’t fantastic but it’s not that bad either

We haven't had one in a little bit and people might be looking at their next year lineups, so figured I'd start one.

You must give at least three suggestions to others before posting and asking for suggestions of your own (unless there aren't three people to give suggestions to yet, obviously).

Colress sounds super fun! I really love his coat, and especially the blue streak in his hair. I'll put it on my list!
Ghirahim was finished last week, thank you for all the suggestions!

The hooded character in black and red you're cosplaying as looks a lot like Tharja from Fire Emblem, maybe that might be something to look into.
[spoiler]if that is actually Tharja you're cosplaying as, I never actually played the game and I am so sorry for being an uncultured swine[/spoiler]
Also voting for Diamond. I just recently watched "Land of the Lustrous" and am quite enamored with it. I'm also gonna throw in the idea of Dorothy from "Princess Principal", she seems like she might be your style.

Looks like you lean toward light armored characters, so I might recommend Shiro Emiya Archer from Fate. But since you also prefer vidya stuffs I would also suggest looking into some of the Bloodborne armors; like the Cainhurst or Bone Ash sets.

Speaking of creepy cosplay ideas and "Skullgirls", Painwheel seems like just the thing for you. Himiko Toga from "My Hero Academia" is also a cosplay you could do and play it up in either direction as creepy or cute.
Also do Megumin, I always wanna see more of my waifu at cons.

Seconding Kars from "JoJo".
Also wanna throw out the idea of Warpath from the X-Men and Khal Drogo from "Game of Thrones"

Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>has good taste, listen to her.
Oh thank you!

>I'm feeling Medusa/Rider from "Fate" and Seras Victoria from "Hellsing"
I've actually thought of doing Seras in the past but I didn't think I'd fit her well so thank you for suggesting her! And I've never watched/played(?) Fate, but the character looks interesting. I like her color scheme.

To send some suggestions right back at ya, I think Hawks, Stain, and the Blue spirit are right up your alley. Green Lantern is another good pick, but if I had to chose one, I'd say Hawks. Otherwise there's: Kazuma from Konosuba, Oikawa from Haikyuu, Ryu from Street Fighter, Suzaku from Code Geass, and Makoto from Free. You could choose from a wide variety of video game main characters too like Joel from Last of Us or Nathan Drake.

Haven’t seen one of these in a hot second. Let’s see what you’re working on, anons!

what is the general consensus on "pro" cosplayers who make a living with the cosplay hobby?

I've found that some people have the opinion that they are wrong and should not abuse their fans with absurd patreon prices
58 replies and 1 image omitted. Click here to view.

I'm reading it more like "If you're such a pro cosplayer, do you even have any money to put towards a retirement plan, or is your hobby-job actually in the negative?"

Which. I have to say isn't wrong. Aside from costhot porn there's really only a handful of people who seem able to make an actual living off cosplay, the ones screeching loudest about cosplay being their main day job always seem to be delusional weirdoes.
Costhots can't really start a retirement plan or anything like that because their income will slow/stop once they start aging

Wouldn't that be more of an incentive to start a retirement plan really early?
All the more reason to put money away while it's still coming.
It's amazing how much their ego makes them insufferable to interact with once they break 5k followers on twitter and have like, 25 patrons. They end up with cheerleaders and white knights going "SLAY GURL" that validates their cunty attitude that would get them smacked across the mouth in real life.

Costhot or not they end up trying to soapbox for some cause hoping a tweet will blow up to get a follower boost after all more exposure = more potential subscribers!

Then they'll sick the betas on anyone that calls them out.

It's a narcissist's playground.They all hype each other up while hoping they fail so they can absorb their subscribers while ordering cheap cosplays and Wish lingerie to siphon money off of desperate lonely men that they wouldn't give the time of day in any other circumstances and are the same type of person they accuse haters of being. (INCEL! GET LAID NERD!)

tl;dr: cunty costhots are in for a rude awakening in their 30s and they hit the wall and their looks fade and their audience moves on to the next 20 year old costhot.

Since there are two Brand Teaparties in Germany in a short time, I thought its easier if we can collect everything about it in this thread.
98 replies and 37 images omitted. Click here to view.
Dunno who did it, but apparently the reason for it was that the original group founder didn't want to transfer ownership to the admins/mods and that's why she deleted it instead.
If that's true then it was miilkribbon. She was the old admin
Wow really? Why she did this? Transferring ownership is so much easier.
My best guess is that she had the same mentality that lots of other fb group admins tend to have where they treat admining groups like they're running a country or some shit. I've seen all kinds of fb groups get deleted for bs drama and where the original admins didn't want to transfer ownership because of "sentimental reasons". It's incredibly cringy, especially when it's big groups with lots of resources that get affected. I suppose it's something like that.
This and if it´s really true we are also talking about miilkribbon which is a huge dramaqueen and totally mental.

Just went to check and so much of their stuff is ripped off. I'd be careful.
Fortune favors the bold. If it’s crap I try another site and get something better.

Any idea if any brand do those type of shoes anymore ? I remember seeing a lot of them in anime and snapshot back then, but I could'nt find any picture ( sorry for shitty drawing). I can't either find one without heel or that are not super chunky
I have these too and they're great! Real leather and no zipper are somehow so rare, but that's what I want in a boot.
Anybody knows a similar shoe or the name of this kind of design? Id really appreciate
Its VW, it was called anglomania/melissa temptation

It's the dawn of the new school year and Sakura. Discussion of nanchatte fashion goes here.
230 replies and 91 images omitted. Click here to view.
no it’s fine, i sometimes think the same thing then realize it’s just fashion so, if you like it, do it
I didn't even really start nanchatte until around 25, 26. If you like it, go for it.

If you don't like the way some of the outfits look on you, or don't feel comfortable in it, that's something else entirely. If that's the case you could always go for a more preppy look, or longer skirts or something.

I've never been accused of any fetish shit, but I think people assumed I was a teen mom because I often got stink eye or people conspicuously looking away when I got on public transit with my daughter. Yes, I posted about this before lol. It doesn't really bother me, mostly I'm kind of sad that people have that attitude. One time, someone did ask what school I go to, and when I said it was just fashion they said "Oh ok." My Japanese prof also liked my outfits. Saying "harajuku fashion" lets you kind of get away with explaining more because people brush off as some weird but cool Japanese thing.

I don't think there's any harm in trying! At the very least, the nice thing about nanchatte is that you can dip your toes in without throwing a ton of cash at it. Bodyline and Taobao are both cheap and offer pretty cute options for skirts, sailor fuku, and sweaters. And you don't have to worry about legwear, footwear, purses, etc. as much as you do in lolita, there's lots of cute shit you can get at normie stores. It's also very thrift friendly if you like thrift shopping. As much as I love Conomi and all the beautiful stuff they produce, nanchatte is my chill fashion, while lolita is where I sink more money for expensive brand pieces.
... I've decided to, partly because of this thread, finally "jump the shark" and buy a complete sailor uniform set. Maybe I'll wait until I get my first internship. But anyway. Soon. I've been wearing nanchatte everyday for two years now, grade 12 and my first year at university. But I've only been wearing a blazer type of uniform without the blazer.
I also have a summer sailor shirt from conomi that I've worn a couple of times, but I never liked the shape of the collar. It's been a longtime dream of mine to wear my perfect school uniform, which for me is a particular sailor fuku ...
I've just started my second year at university and I'm realizing that I don't have a lot of time left to be wearing sailor fuku. I can keep wearing my other school uniform clothes after graduating if I just dress it up more "preppy"-like. I'm going into a field that doesn't have strict dress codes anyway. I can only wear a sailor uniform judgment-free (as good as it gets anyway) at school though. Thanks for reading my blog. I'll post pictures when I get it which may have to wait until I secure my first internship.
>blazer type without the blazer
im sorry but that just made me laugh
I really love pictoral things like this

Wtf this is Li Kovacs now?
1 reply and 1 image omitted. Click here to view.
the lighting in this pic makes her nose look really long & bulby...
She must be late 30s now?
Is it just the lighting? It kind of looks like a prosthetic tip to me.
I think it's really just the lighting and angle. It doesn't look like a huge difference, the Lightning pic is taken from further away with a narrower angle lens and she's closer to straight-on, the Zelda pic is taken closer with a wider angle lens and she's a bit more in profile. Plus the Zelda one is more saturated so the pink tones in her nose make it look larger. It would be really weird for her to wear a prosthetic tip for such a subtle difference, especially given that Zelda doesn't have a particularly pointy nose. And maybe she or the photographer edited her nose smaller in the Lightning pic.
I saw her in person for the first time in ages a few weeks ago, hardly recognized her at first. I used to know her decently well too, enough to hang out outside cons, but we'd lost touch over the years.

finland thread again.

Got accepted to Nekocon Kuopio artist alley. is this con even worth going to? I know nothing about it.

What cons have you done so far this year? What do you have planned?

Kämp probably is right one for this kind of thing.
My personal favourite is restaurant Kosmos. It’s very old and traditional restaurant.

Demo is considered to be one of the best restaurants. It’s more high end and trendy place. Restaurant Savoy is also great place.

Hope you enjoy Finland and Hellocon! Vanajanlinna’s food is supposed to be good, also.

Kämp has decent afternoon tea and brunch. I can recommend especially the brunch.
Thank you for the recommendations! I was thinking dinner moreso than brunch, but now I'm definitely tempted to check out Kämp's afternoon tea. Demo sadly seems to be closed during the days I'd be able to go there, but both Kosmos and Savoy look interesting!
Why is there so much non-lolita related stuff at Witche's Follies? They promoted it as a "lolita-fashion get away weekend" and that you can "spend an entire weekend submerged in lolita fashion" yet almost nothing in their program is lolita-fashion related. False advertising much?
Are there any gothloli prostitutes in Finland? I'm super thirsty for dose princess dresses.

Shop in Wonderland is dying and DM is leaving Lolita. Guess the Leighs are finally losing money and AM is out the door soon too.

You're confusing with Anime North Texas who got bumped to be after January.
It's right down the street from me so yep. Hosting a panel and possibly competing just to have something to do.
No, AD is run by nobody "underappreciated" voice actors who think they can run a con because they guested a con once.
Who bans someone as they're leaving and then brags about it on the internet for 3 days? I don't know what's worse, banning someone who didn't do anything at the con or being concerned about this guy but taking so long to realize he's there you ban him on his way out.

It's especially sad because the attendance is so low. Y'all can't keep tabs on 50 people?
You mean we should be shocked when a con owner shits all over Twitter for months which deters people to go to a con that takes place in a cement room?
