NTA but it seems really cringy to sell a piece you like just because you can afford nicer stuff too. And lets face it, a lot of notorious brand itas are entitled brandwhores.

So, I'm a (kind of) straight cis dude and I admit I have played Mystic Messenger only to get closer to some fangirls. I didn't mind the game at all actually, it helped me fight loneliness during quarantine and I have even spent some money binge playing all the routes. I was wondering if is it bad if I wanna bring to a con a cosplay of Mystic Messenger (707) mostly in order to meet new girls? Have you guys ever done a cosplay with the same purpose?

Like the other anon said, cosplay, discord, and unironically reddit can help meet new people. If you know of an anime related community near you (a club in college, a ERG at your workplace, or even a FB group) you can meet people that way

You’d be a pretty shitty bf if you insisted on your gf having sex with you every time you feel like jerking off even if she isn’t in the mood.

I'm posting a new thread because I've never seen one about this topic on CGL, hope I'm not wrong.
Personally I have some doubts about "fundings": how do you menage it?
Can you recieve some tips just doing sfw, or is it too hard? How many followers do you need?

I am a small creator and just started cosplaying (one year) and I was not even that interested about ko-fi, I just created it and put in bio, knowing nobody would notice me.
The fact is that I follow two girls (they don't know each other) with the same followers count as me and that post kinda bad contents (one postes just a selfie in a while, the other one just instants without makeup) and have a huge amount of kofis (like 120$ a month) from strangers on the internet. They don't do nsfw, one of the two has a boyfriend.
How is it possible? I would like to recieve some money but I can't, and everytime I ask about that they dodge the questions
At this point, I'm just confused: how does it really work?

But if you are offering something for the money (and if you are American) it goes on Schedule C for small businesses. Don’t forget to document and deduct all your business expenses, including fees, whether that be materials, costumes, etc.

Just spend a lot of money on cosplay and write it off as business expenses. That’s totally acceptable by the IRS since costumes are considered a normal expense for performers (as long as they’re not suitable for normal wear), and that way you’ll be spending money on yourself instead of giving it to the gross govt

Your best bet is to being something new to the table. Maybe role play videos of the cosplays you do. "Be" the character

Hair sticks (not chopsticks btw) are actually a great way to secure a bun and lots of women with very long hair prefer them to hair ties as they're less damaging and distribute weight better. Doesn't make the coord any better of course but they are practical.

I sold this dress because of the wild silhouette. There's an underskirt, and the overdress, and the underskirt waistband likes to sit right where the dress panels start, giving it a weird bump. She should have used an A-line petti.

Post any questions here that you don't think deserve their own thread. Whether for something simple in nature, general advice, something overly specific that shouldn't kill another thread or whatever, whatever you think doesn't deserve its own thread.

Let me start: I was debating whether in the future or not to do Pretty Rhythm cosplay, but one problem is that unless I do casual outfits, nearly all of the characters outfits have them wearing ice-skates. If a con even allows that, I can't see walking around in them being practical. Is there a way I could get around that? Whether it's making some sort of special heel, or just carrying skates?

Lets hear about your past experiences and what you planned to do this year before Fan Expo 2020 was CANCELLED.

I was looking forward to checking out the masqurade and cosplay but it seems they are having a limited convention in November limited to 25,000 tix.
>>
>>10425833

As of right now Toronto is under a state of emergency extended *AGAIN* (like 3-4times now) till July 15. and gatherings limited to 10 people. Even if FanExpo was to run this year assuming each week you are allowed double that amount of people that would have gave FanExpo 6 weeks time and at the end allowed 1280 people. In pre-covid times thye had like 50,000 people over the weekend.
>>
Good. Fuck the guy that runs fanexpo. Years ago this dick would go after small cons starting up by offering if I remember right first day free events or free weekend events to smaller conventions run by fanexpo the same day as other conventions to sabotage many small conventions.

For example transformercon hope that armin fucker gets covid and die or suffers greatly.

You’re an idiot. Her wardrobe is small, she had a video tour for her 2020 wardrobe and it only had a few pieces. I don’t know if it’s still up, but she doesn’t have a lot of pieces at once. She has a few and then resells to buy more. That’s not a big wardrobe, a big wardrobe would be if she kept them.

I'm not from Japan either though? I just have enough money to take a trip every two years, and friends that work for Japanese MNCs.

Actually in my exact case I'll tell you I haven't been able to find much Moitie, so I would really have bought it off lacemarket rather than from Japan. Resulting in the exact feedback anon described.

What does your sewing space/room look like? What have you found that works for storage/organization?

Do you store items together as whole costume sets or by similar parts? What furniture or items are essential for cosplay makers? How much desk space is the best?

one thing that really helps espec if you sew for fun:
I have 3 bins of fabric, one for scraps, one for alteration projects, and one for new fabric. Every time I finish a project with the "new" fabric, I force myself to make at least 2 scrap projects or an alteration to make sure I finish all my stash

Cape Comic Con
Anime Sekai
Anime Matsuri

I am somewhat in awe of the stupidity off these conventions, trying to happen as numbers continue to skyrocket here in the south. Only somewhat, because I'm well aware of how few braincells most people down here have.

Cape Comic Con is requiring a waiver for all attendees just to try and skirt the legal liability of someone catching Covid-19 and dying. It shows damn well that they know exactly what they're about to do, and that it's just a money grab for them. One person in/one person out once they reach capacity? So peoplea are just going to cook in the heat right outside the doors waiting to get in. Sounds fun! Definitely worth my money!

Anime Sekai is more quiet about things, but Texas is having record numbers every single day and has halted the next phase of re-opening (not even a bandaid on the problem, let's be real, Abbot probably wants us to die off).

Only desperate weebs are going to show up but what about the vendors, artists, and guests that are going to get sick/worse from this? The fallout to the people they know is what angers me, if you're stupid enough to catch it yourself I don't care but this is just tragedy waiting to happen.

Or a train wreck.

What other cons are this unbelievably stupid?

Two to three hour waiting plus usually an hour delay on their big event programming is what‘s stopping me from attending AM. They keep on sucking on that part for the last three to four years.

I knew my makeup game was good when that one single day I woke up late and decided not to bother with makeup everybody asked if I was sick.

I mean EVERYBODY. They asked what was wrong with my face, why I was breaking out, is it some allergy, why I looked so pale, did I get enough sleep, what I was worried about, did I eat something wrong for breakfast, do I need a sick day, take things easy, get more rest, etc etc. I don't even know how to feel like "yeah my skin has always been this bad, I fooled you all hahaha rip my ugly face but thank you all for being so caring".

It's not even like I do natural makeup, my go-to eyeshadow is glitter brown.
