I almost that that Naruto was Whole Wheat Pete (WWP) Cosplayer dude

Had a hearty chuckle at this thread thanks anon!

I don't have the money or energy or time to go full-on for cosplays, but I also want to go to cons and stuff. I have long hair like the character I want to cosplay as, but I feel nervous about actually going to a con without a full-fledged cosplay.

Any advice /cgl/?

just so everyone knows this was also considered hime kaji at one point. many gaijin would consider this agejo. please understand that terms that gaijin use aren't the same as actual japan. the hard candy dress looks like hime kaji hostess clothes from 2015 or so. hime kaji is also changed from then.

I'm not in the argument, but I can tell that taobao shit isn't the style that plus size anon is looking for. It seems like an anon is just digging her heels in despite being wrong about the dress/shop. I've personally never seen any hime gyaru stuff on taobao even when hime gyaru was popular. There has been a lot of weird pushy anons pushing their opinions or fake information in taobao threads recently and I'm not sure why, but there's also a weird pro-chinese push on other areas of the board (like those chinese fetish threads) that I find a bit odd. I just wish people would move on and stop arguing when they're clearly wrong.

Picked up a tip from another anon, I was able to get some prompts through by entering stuff like
>Left: [insert lolita prompt here]. Right: Ferris wheel at night
The results I get are very doll-ish (and it will often include BJDs without asking) and clolita-ish, but they're not sexualized. There might be a BJD wearing the dress unless you specify "on a hanger" or something, but the main focus is still usually on the dress and not on a girl's body.
Sometimes the same prompt that worked earlier will not work, I just keep spamming it and I can often brute force it, it is inconsistent.
>>10876878
I've had pretty decent luck with prints. Sometimes it comes up with something weird, but you can still clearly see what the print is, and it has a good understanding of how "border print" means a large detailed picture on the skirt and small scattered elements on the rest of the dress. It is also good at following colorway prompts, I include a part that says "in x colorway with y accents"
I would really like to see more people try making fun prints, the prompt I use for the print is "[theme] themed border print"

What are everyone's opinion on taobao dresses? I DESPISE them with every inch of my body. You can tell always if someone only knows lolita from devil inspired and tiktok. They seem to make up their own categories for lolita too.

Is there any good taobao dresses? What is the worst one you've seen?

Thank you for the in-depth answer. I know certainly for me a lot of the appeal for taobao or clolita is being able to get something made to my measurements but I've always found a lot of places extremely hit or miss even in regards to that- bodices not sitting right, bust measurements being too loose in the back and too tight in the front, etc. All that being said my F+F coat still remains a very strong contender in my winter closet- it's only flaw being the large slit in the back where all the cold wind flows in. I wish they would bring back some of their older designs for coats, the newer stuff really isn't doing it for me and there's not a lot of plus sized options for lolita coats.
>>
>>10890786
I lean more towards classic rather than gothic so the change favors me, but understandable if people prefer their gothic days.

Not average, but the cosplayers that clearly look like the stereotypes of their country/race, but are where they're not just qt, but become goddesses of feminity?

Why are there so little skinny black girls?

Do any other cosplayers wrap boob tape around their thighs (under clothes- shorts skirts whatever the cosplay is) to lift all the fat and make ur legs look thinner to match the character better? I’ve been doing this since i first started basically because i read on this eating disorder forum (i used to be bulimic) that this girl did it to look thinner. So am i the only one?

no, I mean the star as seen in the actual card. When you look directly at a vertex on the small stellated dodecahedron, the silhouette is more like a 5-pointed star. The stellated octahedron has more of a 6-pointed silhouette. Pic related

I'd like to know more about using a yellow sheet of plastic or acetate. Would you need to heat it to keep it folded? How would you get the parts to stay together? Would you use a specific type of adhesive?
>>
>>10890663
they can be scored then folds pressed down with something hard like a bone folder, which helps them hold shape. heating may warp it, but it helps with malleability. To hold it together, i would just do a clear glue like e6000, but melting the plastic's surface then pressing them together could work.

That being said, plastic origami is significantly harder than paper origami.

hey /cgl/ I am putting together a Vindicare Assassin cosplay and I think it may be best to 3D print a lot of the doodads and symbols. What's the consensus on 3D printed cosplay- is it based, or is it cringe?

The Vindicare seems pretty straightforward as far as cosplay goes, as I already have a black bodysuit from Halloween. It would be no trouble to get brown leather straps and pouches for all his gear either. I'm not sure where to get started on in regards to the spy mask and the exitus rifle. I figured I could look for some models of Vindicare Assassins from vidya, throw them into blender, and then make .stls for my kobra 2.

thanks for reading my blog hehe. also has 40K ever been cosplayed well? I only see awkward space marines in the odd photo but some people seem to capture guardsmen quite well.

There is usually a cosplay help thread, but when it comes to 3d-printing and cosplay, it isn't really frowned upon, keep in mind that for that project, a filament-printer might be better suited

Otherwise, look up about NERF-Guns and modding them
Maybe you need tp 3d-print some parts, but they could work for as a basis for 40k guns
A longshot should work for an exitus rifle
One problem, it's out of production currently

And since you aren't jacked as him, there are "muscle-suits" who could help

People aren't going to judge you for having 3d printed parts, they're going to judge you for your finishing skills.

I'm currently making pre heresy emperors children armor and printed out a bolter and plasma pistol. No one cares if you bought it, printed it, or molded it from pure marble yourself. I'll admit 40k cosplay is tough to pull off, but vindicar should be easy, and can even get away with a muscle suit underneath if your unhappy.

How do i make it for my cosplay, im aware theres a 3D printed one but the con im going to is in a week and i dont have time for that to ship.

Could i be able to make one with bobby pins or something? advice appreciated

i love baby, heart e, cornet, putumayo, BPN, and innocent world. main substyle is old school and i tend to like anything with alice motifs (bunnies, clocks, card suits, etc.) i'm into shoujo/BL manga and watch anime adaptations of the manga i collect.
>Other hobbies, interests?
i read all the time (2-4 different works a day). i like cooking "healthy" and keep a curated digital recipe folder; i would love to hear about any recipes you've tried. i travel when work allows and go to anime cons in my state every year. i love art and collecting trinkets.
>What are you looking for?
a friend that wears lolita or jfashion! online or irl, both are good.
>Not looking for?
romantic relationships, i'm happily taken. if you don't wear lolita/jfashion i wouldn't know what to talk about, sorry. i stay out of drama as much as possible so please don't obsessively fixate on that if you want to chat.
