Where do you all recommend getting cosplay commissions done? I'm finding less time to work on my own cosplays as my main job takes up more of my time and am looking to offload some of the work. I've seen about etsy, but am not sure where to start or what to look for.

Hey everyone, has anyone seen "death battle!" Is it really a crappy and pointless TV show? It stimulates people to argue with each other, enmity with each other and create wars between fandoms. And the result is nothing, nothing happens, passionate fans always believe that what they admire is the strongest, the best. The internal fandoms are all messed up because of a pointless battle between pixels :)))
See, "death battle!" exist for no purpose but to cause war and hatred. Instead, why not send cosplayers to the ring and deal with each other with WWE. Mountains of money will be poured into betting and the winner will be thousands of pounds. Having money and resolving disputes faster, who doesn't want to? Hope a sponsor will see this issue soon.

Are you the one that prompted this talk of Sixth Street? If so, we both did the same thing last year. People in the Texas gen at that time were all telling me it was a horrible idea too, like I had no clue about the types who hang there. That was the whole point desu. Ended up meeting up with an anon there, bar hopping and ringing in the new year there. Fun!

I hate this shit so much. I'm so sick of people ruining conventions with their publicized degeneracy; we get it, you people wanna fuck anime characters, that's the fuck why we're all here at the cons, but FFS I am so sick of these people ruining cons by being so openly sexual and deranged.
I don't wanna keep going to cons if everyone's just gonna treat them as the otaku hook up center. Fucking gross.

OP, Its a gathering of horny degenerates you mongoloid pseudo-intellectual.
>I don't wanna keep going to cons if everyone's just gonna treat them as the otaku hook up center. Fucking gross. Wagh wagh wagh! *rasberry*
Conventions were literally designed as places for Otaku, Weebs & Geeks to go as a form of semi- religious pilgrimage for the sake of meeting other degenerates/weirdos of similar interests/taste.
If you don't think approximately 1/3 of everyone going there aren't gunna try & fuck/be hella horny the entire time after being isolated from the world in their basements/coom-caves you are utterly retarded.

I really hate it to break it to you, faggot, 90% of people at conventions are normalfaggot slightly-aspergers reddit types who live normal lives and have girlfriends. They just go there because they like star wars or naruto.
If you genuinely think otherwise, if you genuinely think that the people there are like us, are like you, you're seriously deluded and/or retarded.

OP is right, conventions shouldn't be made into normalfag hook up social events.

i hate it a lot cause it marks the end of whatever con shit i had going, like the og group i had started going out to cons with is pretty much done and im moving out west so this thing along with katoricon is gone for me

all i have is animenyc and whatever cons they have in california now

like 2019 really was the last animenext huh

sucks a lot cause animenext in ac was the sweetspot between a small local con and a big con like animenyc

>>10830234
California has fanime, anime expo, crunchy roll expo, SDCC just to name a few. There are so many cons in the state you'll skip a bunch because there are too many.

>>10823682
Wow

Do you carry a bag around with you for random shit (makeup, wallet, phone, charger, small purchases) when you're in cosplay?

I haven't really figured out a way to deal with this, cause I don't really have the money to buy, like, a color/style coordinated handbag for every single cosplay, but I also don't want to carry a generic bag that clashes with my costume. But I also have too much stuff to comfortably fit it all in pockets..
>>
>>10829263
Serious cosplayers have a handler to carry their stuff. But if you're not the type to have trustworthy simps, literally nobody cares if your purse matches your cosplay unless the character in question has a specific bag. Just put it to the side/behind you for photos. Most everyday cosplayers carry some kind of bag or just use the con's swag back to store their necessities.
>>
>Do you carry a bag around with you for random shit (makeup, wallet, phone, charger, small purchases) when you're in cosplay?
Yes.
>I don't really have the money to buy, like, a color/style coordinated handbag for every single cosplay
>I also don't want to carry a generic bag that clashes with my costume.
I think you might be more concerned about this than anyone else. Most people don't care.

I use a messenger bag as my con bag because I carry more stuff at cons than I would on a normal day-to-day basis. Stuff like a water bottle, con guide/book and my actual camera for costume meetups and photo shoots. I either set it down or swing it behind my back when someone stops me for a picture.

>Serious cosplayers have a handler to carry their stuff. But if you're not the type to have trustworthy simps
It's nice when I'm at a con with a friend who will hold my bag when taking pictures and knows how to operate an actual camera but the kind of people who have someone follow them around all day carrying their stuff are just more narcissistic than I'll ever be.
>>
>>10829275
If I don't need to carry around a lot for my cosplay (some costumes like those with body paint or heavy makeup require carrying around a pretty hefty makeup kit for touchups), I make sure to sew hidden pockets in my costume for my stuff. No purse needed
>>
>>10829362
But wouldn't that be uncomfortable
>>
>>10830257
>But wouldn't that be uncomfortable
Yeah, maybe if you're doing bikini cosplays. But if you're wearing a normal cosplay that isn't coomer bait, it's just like pockets in any other garment

So I'm working on a Death korps of Krieg Grenadier costume. Got the uniform and shit like that done, but working on converting a 3d printed lucius pattern lasgun into a hellgun. I have an extremely basic idea of what to do, but I just wanted to ask some advice and maybe see where I can improve. Pic is lasgun in question. Apologies in advance for shit pic quality.

Looks amazing

That mask looks too unfinished (even for an obvious WIP). The white skull looks (no ofence) as an amateurish work of a grade schooler with blunt scissors, hot glue and EVA foam.
I know it is meant to look crude, but many people won't - and, if you leave it this way, will get the wrong idea.
I sincerely advise you to spend a while rounding those edges so doesn't look scissors-cut, then another while sanding the wnite foam so the skull looks a bit more 3d and sculpted. And when it comes to weathering, distress the everloving fuck of it.

On the other hand, the rest of the stuff is very well done. Good job.

Addenda: I noticed the first line, which was to highlight what needs improvement and why, might sound too harsh. If the rest of the post didn't make it clear, know OP, that your work is in general quite good and the post was NOT meant as a "you suck" comment.

Also,
>>10826556
good advice with the tea, but skip the lighter. That doesn't look "weathered", that looks "kid tried too har to make his pirate map be real".
Or weather the armor even MORE and leave the purity seal brand new, for contrast.
For amusement value, do both. Leave the seal brand new and add the bathered remains of a battle-destroyed old one next to it, maybe poking from below.
>>
>>10829883
>Leave the seal brand new and add the bathered remains of a battle-destroyed old one next to it, maybe poking from below.
Now that's a based suggestion. Costuming that tells a story is always good.
>>
>>10825139
Dude, there's nothing in common between a Lucius lasgun and a hellgun. Look at the actual models, what you need is basically a long box with some sci-fi gribblies stuck to it, not a blasterised Winchester.

Liar, everything here is clearly from Taobao, anyone who knows anything about making cosplay can see that. Maybe you made the Nezuko horn (which looks terrible btw), but if you mean like, Makima because you bought some existing clothes? Ya, that’s not making it. You probably can’t thread a needle.
I probably sound like a bitch but that’s because people like you come along and throw your money at Taobao for cheap garbage that you then throw away, creating tons of waste, and making people think those who actually make their costumes are lazy since they don’t post content constantly. It would be one thing if any of this required any effort but putting in a credit card number doesn’t count. At least pay an actual costume maker in the US to support the art, but god forbid you spend more for something that is high quality and lasts since you all wear it once to take pics for tik tok and Instagram because you have nothing else in your life
