The book is pretty good so far, I didn't start it all that long ago and I'm just about halfway (if not further) into it. It's been a while since I've gone through a book this quickly and it's nice.
As for the series you mentioned I can't say I've heard of it. But this book was written back in 1993 in Poland (I'm fairly certain it was Poland), so it should be fairly good for your liking. Interesting to note is that it sounds like the author knows his stuff about swordplay, although it could be that I don't know anything of it. Could be that he's good at making it sound like he knows, I'm not sure but it's a very good read.

I'll check it out, thanks anon. As for The Dresden Files, the first 11-12 books are fun, self-aware, pulpy urban fantasy. I really dug all of them up until "Changes", which was the last one that I read that was actually any good.

>no armour is better than bad armour

This, iron-age and classical helmets and such as are easily available and are affordable, and a lot can be done with good and simple soft kit and Jewelry. Hell. Iron-age jewelry such as torcs, bracelets, and armcuffs can have a very armour-like effect if used right.
The fun thing about working with earlier patterns is that they are quite simple, unless you're doing something based on Germanic and Celtic groups and intend on wearing trousers. Which can be tricky due to their tight-fitting nature.

Why does this board seem to hate fat cosplayers so much? Most people interested in cosplay for fun aren't going to have idol figures so why the hate?

Personally I love a good fat cosplayer or jfashion wearer.....

It's the sloppy, poorly put together, "pics your can smell through the screen" types that I have a problem with, and unfortunately there are way too many who feel too comfortable because of the giant hug box timeline we're currently in......

This, and fat guys cosplaying are like "yeah I'm a fat hairy Sailor Bubba, she's my favorite character" and everyone gets a hearty laugh. I've never heard fat girls own it up, only the expectation of they're perfect and amazing in actual cosplay quality, and any suggestions of improvement is an attack on their ego.

the only efficient way to sustain weight loss is permanent diet change, but the medias all about fasting and drinking weird shit. desu waist size is a much better indicator of health than bmi. if you're above 2xl, you're overweight, but otherwise its fine. im almost a perfect size 8 but I barely eat and get sick all the time because of shitty executive function. like, I could enjoy my "nice" body if I ate enough calories to have more than like two hours of energy a day.

Old thread is hitting image limit >>10510965


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.

Quick review of the Kaneko “August” blouses:

I bought both colors and they’re incredibly well made. This is my first purchase but I will definitely be a repeat customer. I appreciate their commitment to sustainability and it’s definitely a real effort because nothing was wrapped in plastic except a very thin layer of bubble wrap to protect a brooch.

Anyway, the blouses are made of some of the softest fabric I’ve ever touched. It buttons in the back with two jewel-like buttons and it also has a fabric neck tie that you can tie into a bow tie.

It would look best with high waisted pants.

I got my shit extremely fast since I live in NYC - as in, it took 3 days.

How is the fabric thickness, Is it relatively see-through? I’m on the fence about the white one since you can see the mannequin fabric through it but unsure of how it translates in person.
>>
>>10689695
Just tried it on (I wore the black one out already, not the off white one yet). It is quite thick. I honestly am not able to see anything underneath unless I wear something very dark and stand directly in natural light or under a bright light.

So maybe wear a vest/overcoat or have an undershirt to avoid any undergarments showing, but otherwise it's quite thick. It's also not a bright white but an off white, which I think helps too.

no price check thread in the catalog i could find. how much should i be looking to shell out for this? the green just went for 240USD

38 and I've done everything from attend to help run conventions. There is absolutely no cap on attendance. I don't give a fuck if you're 80, come to conventions and have a good time.

Mid 30s here. I've been going since I was a teenager. It's like going to cons when you were younger but now you can afford everything you want because you have money. Oh and waiting in line sucks more because you're older. You'll probably pare down your friends and stick to a core group of people.

Been going to cons since 2014 in highschool and continued to go through college. 23 now and having not gone to one in 2019 feels odd as its something i would really look forward to. Unfortunately in recent years it's really only me and another friend so it's it's small group and I kinda wish I could meet new people and try to get into more party related things. Would like to try an American con out because I'm in Canada

>I'm the third owner of the Kylie Dracani fursuit

Not him but you make it sound like some sort of superhero identity that gets passed down legacy-wise, which is kind of cool. Speaking of legacy, how does that sort of thing feel when you're doing that? Wearing someone else's suit or something premade? How does that work for furries in general? You would think most would work on their own fursonas before getting into the skin of someone else, no?
>>
>>10688625
There's two ways to go about it, you can either buy the suit WITH character rights or without. For Nevada I was offered character rights but opted out, and with Penny I was never offered them.

If you get the character rights it's usually more expensive, and is kind of like taking on the mantle of that identity. It's typically common in popular fursuits like the Justin Bieber one where you're buying the fame of that character.

I don't really into that, I opted out of character rights because I feel weird wearing someone elses skin. When you get a suit without the character rights it's typically agreed that you will change something about the design. Like on Nevada I will be changing the ears and a whole different body design, and on Penny she is just getting a new body. It's like designing a fursona except the head cannot be changed which offers a lot of creativity.

Penny, the Kylie Dracani suit has a bit of backstory to her. The original owner cares a lot about the suit, and has become my friend since. It feels like I'm wearing an heirloom, and when I wear her I try to make the original owner happy by showing her how much I take care of the suit and keep it safe. It can be heartbreaking shen someone buys a fursuit from you that means a lot to you and it gets destroyed or ends up rotting in a closet unworn.

>>10688614
So happy for you!! It rotates the pictures because it's stripping the exif data so anons cant dox you. If you edit the photo in another app then resave it it should work.
>>
>>10688631
Thanks for that rundown, very nice. I was going to ask you about what it's like when you don't buy the rights because then it's like "so, are you technically cosplaying their fursona if they still have their own character rights?" I'm wondering how that works.

But your further explanation of how stuff gets changed after buying it narrows it down for me. Interesting stuff. But yeah, the idea of taking on the mantle seems a little daunting. I'd want to do them justice if I had my own but I'd much rather have my own identity established first.
