One of my "friends" asked me when will I realize that i'm not a child, so that i would stop dressing like one.
Normies and their comments used to not get to me but ever since that comment i've been way more conscious and it's just making me sad.
>>
Mostly nice comments from old ladies, women complimenting me on my shoes, got asked twice in one day while at work if I was cosplaying Misa from death note. Right before lockdown I had a really nice experience with a woman at a makeup store who talked about how much her daughter loves the fashion but she couldn't remember what it was called (I was too embarrassed to tell her)
Only time I really got annoyed tho was a few weeks ago when i was grocery shopping and two maskless 30 something women got in my space and started asking me if I was going to a costume party/if I wore that for, like, every day stuff? Definitely not the worst experience but still annoying.
Honestly I'm just surprised people are so nice about it, I live in a pretty small rural town and I guess I assumed people would be a little more shameless about mocking others.

I was at a grocery store recently and a lady stopped me to tell me that, "Your dress is so beautiful!" with two thumbs up. I was so taken aback I could only say thank you and keep walking. Sorry nice lady, I usually get weird comments and don't know how to respond to compliments apparently.

Absolutely. Doesn't help with the amount of people who are just tired of the stay-at-home thinking they're imprisoned at home and the COVIDiots out there protesting or acting like snowflakes.

So many people don't understand what "flattening the curve" even fucking meant. Some thought it was supposed to cure the fucking disease, instead of just preventing the health care system from being overtaxed.

It's pretty small. If you've been to Chibi-Pa in the past, it's the same con with a new name, basically. Tbh you're better off saving time/money for Holmat if it doesn't get Rona'd.

The only cons I've done in Broward were at the Ft Lauderdale Convention Center. So due to fairly limited exposure, the best reference I got is that the ones at the Miami Airport Convention Center are "big enough". Not sure if that helps any. Thanks for the advice though. Maybe I can actually convince someone if things have improved by December.

I’m trying to make a costume and figured that while this board is made for cosplaying. They could help me make a decent Halloween costume. I want to dress as season 2 Rapunzel but I have no idea where to find the clothing I need. The hair and makeup should be easy at least. I do want a cosplay quality one while on a budget. Perhaps maybe $100 total. Can you all help me?

I've heard about the convention many years ago but I need to know what to expect.

So they still insist on doing this con, in NYC of all places, one of the most claustrophobic cities I've ever been in, like a second wave won't happen in the winter.
Well we'll see how that turns out for them. These guys had their cosplay meet ups take photos in one small area, I'm sure nothing will go wrong.

Realistically they have to proceed as if the con is still happening until the State/City cancels events or risk losing their deposit. They already told press applicants that if the con is postponed, the press pass will be good for 2021 instead.

Most LARP Discords are hot garbage because not only are they filled with random people who just LARP and do wholly different things within that niche. Even worse: They're usually overflowing with random kids who "want to start LARPing, but can't ):::" who will shit everything up.

>If you think there are no historical LARPs then you can take your boat back to the US.

he is right though on the account that """research""" alone won't make your kit better. Especially the kind of half assed """research""" I see here and there.
There is this weird idea that if you pretend your kit is "historical" (and I use the term REALLY loose here) then it's automatically good even if it's put together like shit. I would take any day a decent fantasy kit than a half assed "historical" one
>>
>>10402695
Ofcourse research alone won't make the kit better. But espescially for historical LARPs it's a base from which you work. If the LARP requires me to be a French trouvere in 1226 and I don't even know any songs, a vague idea of the thematics and it's origins. And even worse, not a clue what to wear so I just make potato bag and call it historical. Then it's gone.

Research doesn't make a good kit, but it's a base for fitting within the leitmotiv of the LARP.
>>
>>10402700
obviously and I agree with you but take into account that some people call it research if they read a few facebook/twitter posts that may or may not in the same subject, and THEN they start preaching about how important it is and use the word authentic in every second sentence.
In short: research, medieval, authentic and a lot of similar stuff became buzzwords

FB has seen a surge in tag groups and the claims that they’re “worse than cgl”... they exist alongside the growing activity in general j-fashion groups that don’t enforce strict fashion guidelines. Thoughts on the FB salt mines? Are they too harsh? Are they warranted? Or we all just sick of seeing every pastel sweater being called jfashion?

What characters do you consider are very hard or impossible to cosplay? And why is that?
Pic related for me because you'd have to have a certain charisma and aesthetic alongside being quite fit,not to mention facial structure.

exactly, stop trying to deflect so hard when you're completely wrong. i'm not sure why you think screaming "lurk moar!!! muh memories, im not pretending to be an oldfag!!!1" will somehow convince anyone, but it's pretty obvious that you have no idea what you're talking about. The difference between the postings weren't days, it was literally years.

Sup /cgl/
As a cosplayer that I am, I am predicting that, when events come back, there will be a great influx of nods, parodies, or things related to our very own COVID-19.

I would like to discuss with you people some things:

When events come back, what will be the dynamics? Will we need to disinfect our costumes after each day of events? How many people will be allowed to enter events, and how big will they be?

And more related to Corona-chan/other costumes directly related to them (like Hazmat personnel): Will the community accept these characters? Will a person be able to cosplay Corona-chan without getting shunned publicly for 'sexualizing something that caused death and suffering' or something like that?

Thank you in advance.
