What did Livejournal comms have that modern communities don’t? Is that a question of different platform or community attitude got different overall?

while that is a problem, too... no, that wasn't what i meant.

but the first order problem is deciding that men have no place in the L of cgl, does that include designers? Or just being a fan and male is a problem for >>10397747 >>10397736 >>10397702 . You leave that up to a gatekeeper to decide where such lines lay.

as always, give suggestions in order to recieve them.

I’m not really knowledgeable about genderbending/crossplay stuff, but I’d go with Nico. I haven’t seen any of the series’s you listed there, but I was still able to recognize Nico at a first glance.

It Could be something like a list of traits you like in characters that you’ve cosplayed or plan to cosplay. Then people could suggest characters based off of it.

For example something like;
>Females or feminine guys
>Short or younger characters
>Blue color scheme
>Tan
>No extreme or hard to style hairstyles
>>
>>10397632
This is an interesting idea!

First, there was Psylocke. Then there was D.Va. Now here's some wonderful cosplays featuring the entrancing and beautiful female ninja hailing from SNK herself, Mai Shiranui. So without further ado, here's another image dump thread for all you good boys and girls here in /cgl/. Enjoy!

What's the best place to buy seifuku online now that bodyline isn't shipping to the US? Trying to find something nicer than what's on AliExpress but not as expensive as Etsy

Pretty much every weeby taobao reseller has these, like spreepicky or syndrome store, if you’re too incompetent to use taobao
>>
>>10396705
taobao has seifuku in varying quality. They definitely have things nicer than bodyline, but obviously for a higher price tag.

Start with the taobao thread here, there are links to the guide and a store spreadsheet. Then use google chrome to navigate the site, it'll translate everything for you on the go.

You can also get seifuku on Japanese auctions, whether actually legit or from a brand like conomi, but those tend to be expensive as well (although really good quality obvy)

I’m planning this one, because I’m physically suited to it. Outfit doesn’t seem too hard, a lot of just woven leather and fur and whatnot. The axe is going to be the really hard part imo.

There's a chalk outline of Dia in the hooped area in the lower right image. It seems like a lot of work to fully sketch out a character if it's just going to be embroidered over by a computerized machine. That hoop does not seem like the kind that would be hooked into a computerized embroidery machine. It looks like the kind that would be run through the machine by hand in the "thread painting" style.

I imagine it's a mix of both.

>>10396710
i am not sure if this person uses the same process but look up shishumania on instagram. He has some videos of himself creating his embroidery.

How the fuck do you think a 20-year old would be able to afford altjfash without a trust fund? All lolitas are 25+ because burando is expensive as fuck and you need to make an adult salary to be able to buy the latest dresses, not flipping burgers for $5 an hour. All the teenagers into jfash are just getting knockoffs and cheap aliexpress crap because that's all their allowance and starbucks barista job can get them.

>>10384032
This. I'm turning 30 and so much happier that I have money and a stable job so I can afford a cozy hotel room for two, eat at a nice restaurant after the con day and buy myself whatever clothing I want to. Bonus points: no crazy teenage drama. Compared to when I was 20 my cons were filled with petty drama, stuffing yourself in a room you're sharing with 10 other people and eating takeaway mcdonald on the side of the street with the money you managed to scrape up. No horror stories from carpooling to split gas money and trying to fit everyone's luggage in the trunk. If hitting the wall at 25 means I get rid of all the shit I had to put up with in my teens then I'm taking it on head first bitches.

We’ve had a few of these threads before so let’s get another one going. Post unpopular cosplay opinions.
318 replies and 34 images omitted. Click here to view.

I miss the days when the cosplay community was less accepting of fat pigs. It feels like the entire community has been completely overrun by “body positivity,” Karens/ SJWs, really bad crossplayers, and DRAMA! We still had drama back in the 00’s, but it was all tripfag drama. Now you can’t even say “tripfag” without being socially lynched because you said “fag.” Hell, you can’t say “lynched” without someone crying about it. And I’ll be blunt, the fact that every fucking single thread on this board always contains multiple uses of the word “cis” or “trans” is disturbing. The most we talked about trans people was when discussing Mana from Malice Mizer, or crossplay. Meanwhile, you people are fucking obsessed with two things: Pronouns, and genitals. Most of you need a head check. Stop being faggots, and just have fucking fun with this hobby or leave it. And I don’t mean “homosexual”— I mean fucking annoying twats.

>>10369242
i agree. also the one spongebob one... i remember the girl was going off on social media, that its her original design, and paraphrasing but basically she felt like people need to make their own designs and not "copy" hers. she was really mean about it. idk man its a costume for fun, if other people enjoy it so much they wanna make it, IMO that should be celebrated. generally she seems to have a bad attitude anyway, maybe she will grow out of it.
>>
>>10403382
from someone who used to follow her, she goes off on those tangents a lot with her cosplays. The issue is, she does a lot of generalized designs and then bitches when it looks like someone copies her. She tries too hard to be a "funny meme cosplayer" and she ends up coming off as holier than thou when it comes to regular cosplays.

I guess she was legit sewing influencer back then, she did contribute into this trend for rococo themed coords. I can even tell people trying to recreate her outfits. But it was around 2010-2012, community wasn't swimming in variety of trends and outfits the way it does now.
My bet for being a sewing influencer these days is getting into fancy needlework like Moss Marchen or Voodooodolly, but that would be a lot LOT of work.

Without revealing too much, part of the difficulty with becoming influencial in the Lolita community is that it is highly judgemental and very restrictive in who they are willing to accept.

Is the content produced entirely by women but the venture-capitol funding provider is a man? Nope. Rejected.

Will you refuse to accept sponsorships from Etsy shops / Tao Bao resellers without full disclosure? Rejected.

Do you want to just want to talk about Lolita fashion and not lean into identity politics? Absolutely out.

Bottom line is if you feel inspired to create content; do it. People will take it or leave it. But please, please don't start an account on any platform with the intention of either becoming lolita-famous or building a business around Lolita. If you already make things and are thinking of selling stuff on etsy; go ahead and try it. But don't start making things to then immediately try to sell things.
>>
>>10394353
She’s moved on to other interests it seems. She talks about lolita but I don’t think she’ll wear it for a while. Like other anons mentioned, I too am lurking in hopes she’ll sell some of her wardrobe. But you guys already know she’ll sell them to her clout chaser friends before the likes of us lol

>>10394198
The blue check mark comes from being famous outside of social media. You have to be a movie star, sports person, etc. Or show up in mainstream news. You can be super famous on Instagram but as long as you're not a figure outside of social media, you're not getting the mark.

For Youtube, I think you have to have 100,000 subscribers or be very famous elsewhere. Youtube also has to approve of your content as good for the platform. So even if Lor had that many subscribers, I doubt she'd get verified due to YTs sensitivity about the fashion.

Most people who get check marks have agents or managers who do all the legwork for them. I think Milly Shapiro is the one of the only lolitas who has a check mark on instagram, but it's not because she's a lolita. Misako is also verified.

Have we seen this dress before? I might be dumb because I've turned a blind eye to recent AP releases, but this actually looks decent. The JSK could be really good. I don't remember it in the most recent Tea Party fashion show.

I think anon is saying that those past order links on the items don't work.

My orders are the same way. There's some items that are less than a month old and I can't get to the original listing to view the item condition, etc. It seems random. Some items I ordered that are 3+ months old still have the listing page active. I've messed with the urls and sometimes I can find the old, large images of the items, but I can't get back to the listing page.

I'll grant that there's still a small chance, but reopening some retail businesses (while requiring them to have distancing rules) is a long way from allowing a 20k+ attendee event to happen.
