I remember her, but it isn't really /cgl/ related. She was just another kota copycat bandwagoner. She was cute though and I liked her pics, but nothing more than that.

Yaya is like shrodingers thot. She built her early audience and a huge chunk of her numbers on being a thot, but unlike 98% of thots she's not using sex as a replacement for skill or personality. she's an incredibly talented maker and businesswoman and watching her pivot away from thottery as she ages out gracefully has been a true cosplay success story. also her trim line is great.

There's a ton of threads about bad photoshops, photog drama and the like. But let's try to do something constructive. Let's discuss something simple, what do YOU think is a good cosplay photograph? If you're going to pay money for a photoshoot, what exactly are you looking for in the finished product? Also, post photos of what you consider as examples of good cosplay photos.

Hobby photographer here, so far I've only done portraiture of friends but got pretty good reception from my pictures from Colossalcon East. Stuff like people after reaching out for booking a shoot, everyone asking for a business card, and then my pics getting reposted to some big aggregator/reposting accounts. So I want to dip into cosplay photography more.

How do you guys recommend finding cosplayers to shoot? If it helps, I'm in NY metro area and looking do to free shoots to build up portfolio.

ANYC is right around the corner so this is a pretty good time to dip your foot in.
Post over in the Facebook ANYC/ANYC photography groups (or whatever con you're heading to) about wanting to do shoots, you'll probably get a couple of people to want to shoot with you, especially if you're free. Just make sure you also include samples of your shots in the post.
>>
How do you guys get cosplayers their pics/tag them when posting?

Considering getting business cards with some whitespace for cosplayers to write their ig. They would write it, I would shoot it and they can keep the card. Not sure if that's too cumbersome tho

Do any of you shoot lewds? Does it pay well?

Not sure if this is the right board for this but halloween is kinda like one big cosplay event.

I'm 19 and kinda wanna be Ben 10 for halloween cause I think its a creative simple easy idea. I have been wanting to do it for a few halloweens now but just havent been prepared.

B u t. Will people think im some autistic weirdo for dressing as a childrens cartoon? will people even be able to see that im dressed up? I dont wanna wear somethin if im gonna get made fun of or something in it. Advice on how to rock and feel out a costume I guess

Are you kidding me? The Halloween thread is pinned to the top of the board and you still think you’re entitled to make a whole thread for yourself? I hope you don’t get any advice.
>>
>>10274208
Yeah, don't make a new thread here if you're just asking basic questions. Go to the halloween thread or help thread.

However that said, I'd do one of the 16 year old versions if you're gonna it just because you're a bit old to do a 10 year old.

how many points does it go up by to complete a stage when you advance stages in the event, is there a formula

Post characters you'd like to see cosplay of more often.
If they've never been done before you can just post a picture or video of the character.
Think of this as a way to potentially get somebody browsing /cgl/ interested enough in your character to cosplay them.

I'd like to see more Symphogear stuff. Gear Miku would be cool but would probably be too hard to move in because of the leg parts https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kE_QDLbeBxA

tales of cosplay in general. its possible that its not popular in my area in general but god has the amount of cosplayers for this series dwindled despite vesperia selling really well.
if we are going for specific entries within the series tales of the abyss, symphonia or rebirth

You're either actually blind or is a weird void. Even before The Royal brought the game back into the spotlight I couldn't go to an even without seeing a handful of Futuaba, Joker and usually at least one Ann and Makoto. Most cons even have a cosplay meetup for P5 that nets a huge group.

ACKSHUALLY it is cosplay. You're just portraying dead people rather than fictional ones.

How do you go about when posing for a picture? Like how do you decide which pose you're going to do? Do you feel awkward or lost?
I know this must seem like a uncommon topic but I don't want to look like a complete retard if someone by any chance asks for a picture of me.
>>
I usually think about what poses to do before the shoot/start thinking about location and poses around when I get a date pinned down, but even so, I'm not the best at posing. I also take photos of my friends in and out of cosplay for fun, and I find that I'm much better at posing them than I am at posing myself. Beyond that, I think I pose my body alright, but I'm not the most attractive and my face only really looks decent from certain angles/with certain expressions, but for some reason, I can never seem to recall enough to know what to do with my FACE when being photographed. D:
>>
I research all the official art of the character as well as other cosplayers and fanart, pick some poses, and just practice them in the mirror before the con.
As long as you get one or two poses down I think you'll be ok for hall snaps.
If I'm doing a shoot I'd practice switching between as many different poses as I can. Otherwise my mind just goes blank after a few shots, especially cause some photographers don't give much direction.

Elite Cosplay has a good series of posing videos on Youtube

I feel like such a bitch right now.

I was going to buy a dress and would have been okay to do so, but now my sister's dog needs surgery and I've been asked to contribute a big sum of money towards the surgery.

I won't be in the red, but I certainly can't buy anything for a while now.

I kind of don't want to give such a large amount but it's expected of me now and it's not like I can say, "no sorry you're dog is on his own."
>>
>>10274934
Say you'll contribute a small part of it as a gift and the rest as a loan because you don't want the dog to die, but it also isn't your responsibility because it isn't your dog.

For me, it's the opposite. I don't have any issues talking with people in daily life (quite the opposite I enjoy with everyone, even strangers) but I get very anxious when cosplaying.

Oh, and no BPD.
>>
my cosplay username online is a direct reference to bpd. so. anon know i love you.
>>
I have BPD and get SO anxious in cosplay. It's a mixture of "I'm dressed differently", "People are going to be looking at me", and "I look god awful in photos". I compete, too, so I'm constantly nervous that something will fall apart or someone will break something. But I still do it because I love costuming and cons are one of the best place I get to showcase that. Plus I've met most of my friend group through it.
>>
>>10271881
i don't have BPD but I have autism, anxiety, and depression and most likely rejection sensitive dysphoria
for the most part i dont feel terrible in cosplay and usually feel a little better
it also helps that my sibling has come with me consistently to conventions as they usually do cosplay from the same series as me so theres no reason to really stray from them a decent amount of the time

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 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.

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).

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.

>>10247817
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.

>>10248251
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.

>>10251163
Seconding Kars from "JoJo".
Also wanna throw out the idea of Warpath from the X-Men and Khal Drogo from "Game of Thrones"

>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'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.
>>
>>10273181
Costhots can't really start a retirement plan or anything like that because their income will slow/stop once they start aging

>>10273194

Wouldn't that be more of an incentive to start a retirement plan really early?

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.
