I don't cosplay, or do any of that sort of stuff in general, but my autism compelled me to make this Brotherhood of Nod inspired larp getup, however, I have run into a problem. I can't fucking find any good shoulder guards anywhere that are sold individually, so I figured that I could ask for advice here on where I should be looking for them.
The ones I have found are always attached to some motorcycle or sport gear that doesn't really fit the look I am going for, or into police riot armor that is expensive as fuck, and probably illegal to possess for private citizens here where I live anyways.

tl;dr

What additions can make my oldschool outfits less plain?
For example, for classic this is vests and boleros, inflexible bonnets and decorated flat hats; for gothic there are lots of options - all the previous but in dark colors and also corsets, harnesses, jackets and long jackets, unusual headdresses like Antique Beasts ones...
But in oldschool I'm stunning. I can only remember aprons.
Any suggestions?
>>
>>10502595
Pompom hairties, pearl accessories, higher platform shoes or more strappy shoes, large bags, crown headpieces, more elaborate natural hairstyles, bustiers or corset tops like the vintage VW tops.

>>10502595
ffs, this should be in the stupid questions thread.

I can't find a character with same characteristics that I have in real life to cosplay with, like:
>male
>brown eyes
>brown hair, just a slightly blonde
The only character I found out that fits in these characteristics is Yui Hirasawa from K-On (pic related), but I'm male
Pls help a noob in cosplaying, I pretend to go to an event cosplaying

Light from Death Note?

No car so you're just gonna go with your parents? You have not a single friend who will take you? I'm so sorry anon. Do you need a hug?

Does public transport not exist there? Can't you just buy a bus ticket to wherever you need to go?
I've been going to cons in bus with my friends since I was 14
>>
>>10502556
nayrt but >with my friends
I'll just assume he has no friends who share his interests and would accompany him. Though I think a bestie would go with you regardless. But I agree about public transport, especially during con times. You won't even stand out.

>>10502337
Another option could be buying similar looking clothes and alter them to fit your character. I recommend checking out thrift stores! Your contact might even help you alter them if they're good with clothes.
It shouldn't be hard especially if you go for simple designs like Kyon or Light. Others coming to mind are Keiichi from Higurashi or Firo from Baccano.

With the news that the Pfizer vaccine has a 90% effective rate, and will likely be available to everyone by spring, it's pretty clear that conventions will start happening again in the US some time in 2021.
What do you think will be the first major comic or anime convention held next year?
I think Megacon might actually have a chance. March seems too early, but Florida pretty much gives zero fucks.

>The Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center in National Harbor filed a layoff notice June 15 affecting its 2,077 employees as the coronavirus pandemic continues to pummel the hospitality industry.

>The Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification (WARN) filed with the Maryland Department of Labor lists an effective date of March 11. The Gaylord, Greater Washington's largest hotel at 1,996 rooms, has been closed since March 24, when the owner of all seven Gaylord resort properties across the country suspended operations.

So much for those cons coming back anytime soon.

Conventions will never recover. We will be lucky if it ever happens again
>>
>>10504195
Convention center based cons will be fine since a city government is in charge of those places and they will bend over backwards to bring visitors in.

The hotel based cons are the ones that are in trouble because hotels are about to straight up go out of business.

The numbers definitely feel like I've splurged ($435 on FJ in items (+ $80 in fees and + $157 in shipping), $42 on Etsy, $135 on misc sites) plus all the shipping fees to me and then shipping to them (Canada-gull cost $60 alone) but when I looked at the pile of gifts I got for everyone it felt like I basically spent nothing. It happens every year for Secret Santa. I get stuff they want but I still feel like I've just gone to the dollar store and gotten absolute crap and tossed it into a box and I'm irrationally worried people will think I cheapskated them and went under-budget.

How the fuck do you ship a styled wig?

someone please explain how it doesn't get completely fucked up in transit?
>>
I started learning how to style then myself after realizing none of the wigs I bought kept the styling.
>>
>>10500151
Pay close attention when you commission someone in the first place. If the seller remains silent through the whole thing assume you're getting shipped trash. If the seller communicates with you the whole time you'll probably just need to maybe smooth it a bit from shipping. I bought a wig from a seller in the US and they shipped it with no protection whatsoever and clearly half assed it. They also never communicated with me except to whine after the fact when I complained. Another wig however I got from an absolutely lovely seller in Italy who communicated with me the whole time. The wig I got from her was beautiful despite shipping from overseas.
>>
>>10500655
Lovely
What are good sites to buy wigs anon?
>>
I've only ever had one styled wig shipped to me before doing them myself. The wig head was secured to the bottom of the box so it didn't shift around, the wig itself had pins everywhere possible to secure it (this was important since it had some external foam pieces that are both very heavy and also shift at the slightest movement), and there was padding wherever there was space around the top and crown. It needed minor touchups, but arrived pretty much how it looked in the wip pictures. If you're the one shipping, I recommend you just take care packing it like that. A wig head in a box isn't enough.

Depends on the con. A bunch of small-to-midsize cons like Fanime wiped everyone's hotel bookings, so everyone has to rebook in 2021. Others, mostly larger cons, held onto hotel spots so if you managed to get a room this year, you're guaranteed one next year.
