Looks like there's slats under there, but for any bed with minimal airflow underneath I personally think the mattress should be lifted up and flipped much more regularly - maybe not daily like Japanese futons but weekly-fortnightly if you're basically on the floor, unless you're in a super super dry area and there's zero moisture.

People just go outside like that every day in my country, even if there's no sport event going on. They get to cosplay shit every day and no one bats and eye, but then you do an actual cosplay for a con and everyone looks at you as if you were some kind of outer space creature. It's not fair, bros.

Once they decide to open it'll probably be open long term. That's the hard part though; they still don't want to open. Right now there's near zero entry for foreigners if you aren't there on business of some sort. Supposedly there are a few dancing monkeys (read: English "teachers") getting in but not many as each person needs to have a special entry permission processed. Eikaiwa and ALT companies have a year or two backlog of applicants at this point.

Sorry for being a new fav but how is shit like this even done?

Oh, as long as you get back it works for me. I’m not drafting a mecha SRW cosplay until next year. Hope your puppies are treating you alright.

>>10688300

I -did- see those techniques and was wondering how stable it is for you to stand on those realistically. I don’t exactly have a suit up crew so this should be interesting.

>>10688304
That answers the other question since I have to fly out to cons nowadays. Alt might be a literal bitch to pack but I’ll check that video out during my lunch break tomorrow. If anything I can pass the knowledge off to one of my colleagues who was planning on doing a HBV Raiden cosplay. We’re having fun white boarding a floating Sega Saturn disc rn.

Is Fiberglassing the PVC skeleton neccesary? I imagine it would be strong enough to hold strictly EVA foam, which is what I’d plan this build to use..

As for stability - these risers are 6 inches tall. The wood blocks you see is to add an additional two inches for about 8 - 8.5 inches of total added height. They are stable but id recommend some practice before going out on a show floor with them. Scout the area you plan to be in ahead of time for hazards like cables or uneven surfaces. The tallest you want to go with platforms like this is about 9 inches as it starts to get unstable and you run serious risk of injury from a tumble. If you have to go 10 or higher i suggest you look into stilts as those are designed for this purpose specfically. The size and height of them will require changes to your overall costume though. My wing zero for example needed 15 inches of height to make the scaling correct. To give myself some security the beam rifles had pvc pipe cores that were tied to my wrists so I could use them like canes to catch myself if I felt like I was going to fall.

DESU no matter how confident you are I recommend you enlist a handler if you want to wear a costume like this. You taking a spill isn't a matter of if its a matter of when and you'll need help with crowd control at the very least. Also having someone on standby with a bottle of water is a godsend.

A Raiden cosplay would be killer post here in the progress thread or tag my SM so I can see it >< I need to do a virtual on cosplay soon as that was my original namesake.

The fiberglassing was just a way to get the pvc to attach to the metal frame. With the crazy cart tanks I drilled some holes into the gocarts and attached the pvc frame with simple zip ties. That way I can cut the frame out and reuse the carts for another costume in the future easily.

>Scout the area ahead of time.
That's the fun part, every con I go to nowadays requires me to fly out to. This is the same reason why I usually have to do 5ft props with a detachable handle as a take away (besides good practice.)

>I recommend you Enlist a Handler.
Unfortunately my best friend is a reddit onions man who can barely pay attention. I'll -keep- that in mind moving forward though.
>Someone on standby with a bottle of water.
-yes- Wearing Monster Hunter or Military shit alone is enough to need that by itself.

>Raiden Cosplay would be killer
We're still white boarding. He's doing Raiden, I want to do Temjin myself. The -original- plan was to just building like standard humanoid armor, but I really like the stilts idea a fuck ton.

>Fiberglassing was just a way to get the pvc to attach to a metal frame

i disagree , most likely pepakura cardboard craft model with resin coating and fiberglass on the inside for structural integrity , or craftfoam covered with vinyl , or even both depening on the zextion of the suit

The last thread got (I’m assuming) deleted because of the abhorrent amount of incels bringing completely off topic and then idiotic things into the thread so please refrain from mentioning the Taliban, Muslim religion, Sharai law, your opinion on what age women should get married or Christianity in this thread, I understand that that is a very tall order considering this is 4chan but please only use this thread for spank! discussion.

Keep it up anon, your looking good

What is your dream dress? Not one that exists, but one you would immediately buy if it did. This dress and it's accessories were designed specifically for you with the print and colorway you chose. Is it a OP? JSK? Salopette? What is it's style and colors? What brand makes it? Describe it to the best of your abilities.

Last night I dreamed about finding an AP jsk at some physical store for only 20 something dollars and being shocked about it. It was white with sax pinstripes and it had red heart accents
I'm not actually from the lolita side of the board, but I am extremely curious if there is a dress like this because it'd be a literal dream dress. Maybe I saw it, forgot it, then dreamed about it

This. Same reason why I don't understand people who say "don't wear shiro because people assume it's a wedding dress!" Who fucking cares about normie opinions.
>>
>>10687066
That’s not true, classic done properly gets a lot of compliments. “Why are you so dressed up your dress is beautiful “ over and over
>>
>>10687115

This. I wore classic out the other day and several people complimented my "outfit" without calling it a costume. Although a lot of it has more to do with not using what modern society deems 'costumey' elements rather than how well put together you look. I notice when I use large hats the compliments quickly turn to 'costume' rather than outfit.
>>
>>10687158
Yea, any larger OTT items are going to be seen as costumer
>>
>>10687066
Like someone above said, it depends on how you coord it. I live in a very conservative state and wear pink AP sweets prints with minimal accessories. I've only received compliments from people going "your dress is beautiful", "I love your 'fit" with no mention of costume. If I was wearing a million and one Claire's accessories or carrying an usakumya or wearing a giant bonnet or donning Elpress L then yeah, I'd get different reactions. But there are ways to wear flashy dresses without looking like a costume. JP brand veers on easy-to-tone-down while Taobao can quickly go overboard depending on how tacky the lace and poly is.

That said, wear whatever the hell you want. I just know there're a lot of newlitas who're scared of normies judging them for wearing sweet and they need to know it can be toned-down before they feel more confident going out in lolita more often. Also I want to see more sweet lolitas out here in the boonies. Everyone here is classic or gothic for some odd reason

I’d really like to see some coordinates and talk about salos!

Yes, unhinged to the maxx! Considering the "person running the convention" never posted any such thing is fucking hilarious (they are completely straight!). Yes, there are some trans members of the crew, and it was likely one of them you mistakenly took for the director. Next time you should know what the fuck you're talking about before you open your cock hole.

Enchanted Dream Couture will be in the show, which is the one that might put something decent together. But yeah, I was also seriously confused on how half those brands were going to be participating in the fashion show. Especially when they don’t even make clothes…

Are there any companies or vendors that do custom cosplay commissions with high quality material like silk, wool or linen? I want to have a fantasy cosplay outfit as authentic as possible down to the bone, as if it jumped right out of the world it came from. I don't want it to have that awful shiny plasticy look like all cosplay outfits have. I'm willing to spend a pretty penny. Pic unrelated but same idea

What's the general price range? If it's anything above 1.2k, I might opt out. Never delved in this sort of thing before, so I'm pretty clueless.
>>
>>10688274
That really depends on what you're looking to get commissioned. If you want high quality cosplays it's really not going to be cheap and could easily surpass 1k
>>
>>10688281
This. Op you’re looking for commission/bespoke costumes. If you really want silk/wool/fur you’re easily gonna get into the 2k range.
>>
>>10688292
I did say 1.2k but if that's the range, then so be it. I just don't know where to start looking. I suppose you could go to any reputable commissioner and pay them for the materials?
>>
>>10688303
Also when I said
>I did say 1.2k
I meant it like I'm setting up a boundary for myself. If I really wanted, I could spend 10k from my savings, but I don't think that's very smart.
