Will this be the new cosplay hype for the end of 2020 and 2021?Do you play thegame? What's your favourite character? Cosplay plans? Why is Venti the best boy?
Unsurprisingly working on a Venti cosplay right now. I hope I will be able to do him justice, even though I'm a boy. Well, at least I'm short...
>>10486438Godspeed to anyone cosplaying these characters, except the larping fujos lolRazor is my favorite male character so far. He's a little bit autismo, but don't mind him. Barbara is my favorite out of all the girls and I'd love to cosplay her if money allows me. It helps when she's an interesting blend between a bard and a priest, everything about her aesthetic is perfect.
Paimon was my first choice but I know it’d get a lot more annoying comments in that cos so I’m planning Klee instead. Gulls please pray with me this fandom won’t become utter shit too quickly.
>>10486459I'm positive, that it will stay wholesome enough in the long run.
>>10486438I really want to do a Sucrose cosplay, but I'm Kaeya's skin tone so I'm not sure if I could pull her off. I usually try to stick to characters that look more like me to avoid the rude comments people post on black cosplayers' images, but I really like Sucrose.... I might just do it anyway and ignore the hate.
>>10486484I think you’ll still look great anon! You might get some comments, but know they’re all from losers so don’t even give them attention.
>>10486484just do it! the last thing your skin color should dictate is who you should cosplay. If you like the character, go for it!
>>10486459I wanna make a Paimon cosplay for my toddler but I don't know if it's a good idea for literally babby's first cosplay (I have 15 years experience though)
>>10486484You should do it! The shade of hair will look gorgeous on your skin tone
I'm thinking about cosplaying Diluc but I can't find good reference pictures anywhere. If someone has a reference sheet could you share it?
Venti isn’t best boy y’all are just pedos.
>>10486691Actually Xingqiu is best boy, and liking androgynous anime boys doesn't make you a pedo.
>>10486691Imagine thinking cartoons and real people are the same thing
>>10486695>>10486701Sounds like things pedos would say
>>10486691>thousand year old shapeshifter>u pedoOkay. Anyways, I really like Beidou. I have other cosplans lined up but maybe I could squeeze her in. I already know getting the boots right would frustrate the hell out of me.
>>10486718Cowbutt crunchies has a video tutorial of the boots on her youtube channel
>>10486691you have no idea, infidel heretic! Venti is love, Venti is life!
>>10486691There are east asian men in their 20s with that build. Also it is a cartoon, you are on 4chan, and nobody cares.
predictions for how the fandom will go after Taobao cosplays get released:>Paimon becomes the new Kanna/loli of the month cosplay>Barbara becomes the character that literally everyone cosplays because she's a kawaii aidoru-chan>Lisa will be the "mommy" character that every thot lewds>Mona will get lewded a lot too, but not as much as Lisa>Zhongli and Venti become the fakeboi cosplays of the month>Diluc and Kaeya become the next yaoi couple for queerbaiters to cosplay even though they're stepbrothers>there will be some f!Traveler cosplayers but almost no m!Traveler cosplayers>everyone else gets ignored
>>10486484It's pretty scum-ish to do that. everyone will think so too. generally they won't say a thing so go ahead If you're that way
This game is going to die in a month or two desu, it's already halfway dead on twitch.
>>10487183Honkai's managed to survive, I'm sure Genshin will survive too.
>>10487197hink ai is the definition of dead though, in terms of popularity in cosplays and in the mainstream. it has a dedicated fan base but it’s pretty niche
>>10487089oh god, please no fakebois ruining my Venti! Dem bitches better fuck away from this fandom.It is but a mere wish though...
>have a c1 jean>jeanne is my waifu across gacha multiverse>finally will match as the tall one in cos group
any razor cosplayers coming up?
>>10487172Why would it be scum-ish....?
>>10487183I disagree. Twitch isn't always the best way to determine successful game properties. Since the top games are MOBA, Star Craft, WoW, GTA5 RP, FotM battle royale, FotM shooter, FotM meme game. Usually co-op/competitive play. Easy for streamers to react to spontaneous interactions and be in the moment. Genshin Impact is mainly a single player game. Not condusive to getting reactions from viewers.As far as success. It's a Huge asian market. Drew in a ton of new people that never played any gacha. Despite being a f2p gacha game; It is fleshed out like a AAA $60 game. Totally free to play. they made $50m within 3 days of launching. The audience is going to be around for years.The designs are simple and appealing. Every one has a character they're drawn to. The potential for 2d/3d art and cosplay is off the charts. Even shitty digital art drawings of Diluc/Mona/Venti/Fish get thousands of views. I would not sleep on Genshin Impact fan art if I were a content creator in any capacity.
>>10488725successful game property =/= long term cosplay hype or not being deadno one cosplays from wow, fotm battle royales, etc. asian success doesn't dictate western success, brainletno one gives a shit about how much you love the game, this is /cgl/ not /vg/, and we're talking about things in terms of cosplay here
>>10488741lmao you're retarded, you're the one who brought up Twitch in the first place. The game has extremely appealing designs for both men and women, which are also highly recognisable. Uwowo is already making cosplays of it as we speak.
>>10486484I'd only not do it if you think a mint wig won't go with your undertone>>10486691It's more that the few (available) non-shotas are also not the best in comparison to every other design. A few if the upcoming ones are promising.>>10486695Venti is mid tier at best
>>10488752>thinking every anon is the samenice delusion twitch is an indicator of hype anyways lmaoo, again, china pumping out cosplays is not an indicator of western success. stop getting so buttblasted that not everyone worships some shitty gacha game like you do
>>10488789sounds like you didn't even play the game. or you played and you're salty about not getting any 5*s
>>10488809>wahh why doesn't everyone love the game i love!!1!!!shitty gacha games are shitty gacha games. cry harder.
>>10488810so i'll put that under, didn't play. you can leave the thread now
>>10488812>wahhhhhh if you dislike something you must not have played!!!1!!kek, imagine being this attached to a shitty gacha game
>>10488812Anon, you realize Genshin, at its core, is a gacha game right? All gacha games have some sort of gameplay, you may like this style of gameplay that they’ve implemented but that doesn’t make it not a gacha game. Not to mention, it has the worst gacha rates of any game on the market right now.
>>10488884Nayrt but most gacha games have far more barebones/basic gameplay. Of course Genshin is a gacha game, but the solo content can be enjoyed for 40+ hours without ever doing a single pull. It's a solid RPG in its own right, just the fact that it has gacha mechanics doesn't invalidate it as a game.
>>10488892this, ive got 70 hrs in and im still 1/4 the map
>>10488892No one invalidated it as a game, though, they called it a shitty gacha game, which quite frankly it is. It has somewhat decent gameplay, but the whole point of the game is to get players to pull gacha. You shouldn’t take things so personally because you like a game, anon.
>>10488892>still being this assblasted about a shitty gacha game>b-b-but my botw gameplay!!1! such a good rpg!!1! u just don’t play it!!1!11>seriously trying to argue a game with a .6% 5 star rate, somehow even worse than fgo’s, isn’t a shitty gacha gamekek, delusional casuals
>>10488910god those rates are truly shit.
God i hate this shitty game already
>>10489002why dont you got sit and spin
Just ordered a Venti cosplay. Not sure what the quality is from overseas stores yet and not sure when it'll get here, but if it's not the best quality I'll probably take it apart and just build the boy from scratch.
>>10489063It's unlikely to be good unless what you ordered is a preorder. Most reputable Taobao shops for now are still in the preorder/prototype stage and ones that have photos of an actual costume up look rushed and low-quality. The only good ones I've seen have been one-off professional commissions from China.
>>10486438I wanna cosplay the brown boy but I'm having the problem of1. can't sew2. The person I usually go to for cosplay commissions stopped taking commissions permenately (and left the cosplay scene)3. I am scared to go to a new person for a cosplay I know will be expensive when I don't know their overall quality firsthand
>>10489090I also saw only one good one so far and there the cape is still missing. So I will rather wait a bit more.
>>10486438>What's your favourite character?I kind of want to do Lumine.
I've been really wanting to cosplay and and Venti really seems to be calling me because I found a really nice pre-order on taobao. Though, Sucrose and Fischl really call out to me too.
>>10488741>no one cosplays from wow, fotm battle royales, etc. asian success doesn't dictate western success, brainletExactly, so why bring up Twitch as an indicator for IP popularity and fandom content? I don't care for gacha games and don't play them, but Genshin does have appealing designs. If the game stays afloat and consistently gets new content, I can see it becoming popular among cosplayers.
>>10491069you realize there’s more than one person on this board right? fucking imbecile
looks fine so far, I might decide for this one!
>>10486817I used to love Venti but now I'm a Klee fan.
>>10491122You do realize you haven't even given a single fucking argument for why this won't stay a success?
>>10491159That's really cute!! I hope it looks as good in real life as their stock photos look. I put down a preorder deposit with elfmade on taobao for a Diluc and Sucrose costume, but I've never preordered a costume or bought from elfmade, so I'm gambling a little bit on quality. I found one review that said their costumes were pretty good so I am hopeful.Seeing the sheer number of different cosplays going up makes me really happy!
>>10491248gacha games die hard and die fast, look at arknights, onmyoji, etc. flavor of the month is flavor of the month. sorry you can’t face the facts about your beloved game and try to project like every anon who realizes it is the the same person.
>>10491159don’t buy from dokidoki, that cos is from 1/3 delusion. no clue why dumbasses buy from marked up resellers in this day and age
>>10491275Maybe unnecessarily harsh to dokidoki anon, but true. Cosplay resellers will charge you double what you could've bought something from on taobao.Do you know if 1/3 delusion's quality is as good as their stock photos?
>>104912831/3 delusion is one of the best mass produced taobao cosplay brands imo, consistently solid construction and fabric choices at decent prices. i’ve never gotten something from them that doesn’t look like their stock pictures.
>>10491283nta but I agree that 1/3 is one of the best quality Taobao shops. their costumes can be up to 2x the price of other shops but it's well worth the cost. >>10491275because people are too lazy to>reverse image search the picture to find the original store>look for the costume on taobao>use shopping services even though they're all really easy to use nowadays>all of the above
>>10491272bandori is still pretty big
>>10488741>>10488789>>10491272Why the fuck are we bringing this up and argueing? Who gives a shit if the hype dies out or not. Congrats smug anons you’re so smart for realizing something might be flavor of the month!
>>10491354Right? Like so what? Are people not allowed to like things unless they're 100% guaranteed to remain popular for years to come? So sorry! Its popular now! Who gives a fuck if everyone moves on in six months? There will still be people who enjoy it, or remember enjoying it.
>>10491360>>10491354The thread op literally asks> Will this be the new cosplay hype for the end of 2020 and 2021?Fucking retards, learn to read a thread.
>>10491384Not talking specifically about the people having an actual conversation about trend predictions. Its more the people coming in just to be like "this game is shit and its going to die in a month, your taste is shit." That isn't answering the prompt in a meaningful way.
>>10491422It is though? Saying that the game’s going to die in a month is answering the main part of the question that OP asks: obviously if the game is dead it won’t be the cosplay hype. An answer you don’t want to hear doesn’t make it any less valid of an answer lmao. Make a better OP next time that won’t invite arguments if you’re going to bitch about people arguing.
>>10491286thanks for the heads up! I will order trough my taobao agent then! It does look pretty good after all
>>10491360>>10491354This. Gacha games die quickly but people still cosplay from them. The Arknights global server died before it hit its one year anniversary but is still a popular game to cosplay from. Just because a game dies doesn't mean that people should completely stop cosplaying from it. You wouldn't say people shouldn't cosplay characters from older animes and games which haven't gotten reboots.
>>10486484There's a darker skin waifu coming out soon.
>>10492092Yeahhh but she looks stupid.
>>10486439>>10492558Any more Genshin cosplays, or is it still too early?
>>10492816CowbuttCrunchies made a Beidou cosplay but this is the only photo they've posted so far.
I honestly think the popularity's gonna die off pretty quickly, unless they keep updating it.
>>10492832>CowbuttCrunchiesWow havent heard that name in a while, happy shes still out here cosplaying!
>>10492816There's a lot in China like from events like ChinaJoy (has sponsored/official cosplayers)
>>10492960They've pretty much completely lost relevance in the cosplay community and resort to circlejerking with their group of white knights now. That aside, December Wynn is also working on a NingGuang cosplay and did an Instagram Live showing her draping process a few days ago.
>>10493070Holy shit are you still here, posting this exact same thing in any thread you can? Some day you really need to tell us all what this vendetta of yours is about.
>>10493161Keeeek being this triggered over CBC being called irrelevant. Which one of them/their whiteknights are you? I know you all visit cgl since you all used to talk about here when I was still in the discord. CBC, and all cosmakers really, is irrelevant in the era of ethots. That aside, UWOWO has opened preorders for select characters (Lumine, Jean, Barbara, Fischl, and Venti are the ones I remember off the top of my head) but there aren’t sample photos yet. I’m curious about how they’ll turn out since UWOWO isn’t known for having top notch quality.
>>10492832Cowbutt has a few more. She and Hendo Art were the official cosplayers for the game's launch I think.
>>10493204Damn this is gorgeous!
I was interested in cosplaying Genahin Impact as soon as I finish up my current project, but I really like Razor and Venti. Should I cosplay Razor because he's not going to cosplayed nearly as much?
>>10493161Hi cbc kek
>>10493421Absolutely. I adore Razor so you should definitely cosplay him. If you cosplay Venti, you’ll just get lost in the crowd of thousands of other Ventis.
>>10493421If you liked Venti more than Razor, I'd say just cosplay Venti because you like him. But if you really like them about equally, definitely go for Razor! You'll stand out more and show love for a less popular character.Razor is slowly climbing the tier charts though, so minmaxers might put more attention on him soon. Don't know what effect that has on cosplayers, but as he gets more attention and moves from C tier, more people might start noticing how good he is and how fun his design is. But Venti will still be more popular.
>>10493204Her choice to slap a printed panel on top of her pants instead of embroidering the design or using htv is so bizarre. It's clear that her armor and propmaking skills are much better than her sewing skills.
>>10493196>all cosmakers really, is irrelevant in the era of ethotsWhat an autistic thing to get hung up about. I'd rather see nice Genshin cosplays made by "unpopular" cosmakers than an egirl in a shitty taobao outfit slutting it up for dollars. Who cares if the cosplayer doesn't have tons of followers?
>>10488061I hope I can pull him off at some point!
>>10489092Ask the person you used to go to if they have someone they can refer you to and trust in terms of quality and pricing fairly perhaps?
>>10491304>>10491283nayrt but sometimes it can be cheaper to order a cosplay through aliexpress right? In example if you only plan to order one cosplay and the price difference is only ~20$ and you know the international shipping is more expensive than that.I would've ordered from taobao but the shipping got extra expensive since covid hit
>>10496853If you're shipping through taobao forwarding directly to the USA (idk about other countries), EMS for a single cosplay is about $20-30 even now. It's at the very most going to be equal, and most Ali sellers mark up 1.5-2x the price. The only thing that's ever worth buying through ali is small stuff like stickers or nail polish or shit like that, cosplays aren't ever worth.
>>10493716I'm sort of heartened to hear this, anon, as someone who is serious about construction and accuracy in my own work, but that's my downfall. I simply can't generate content quickly so I have very few followers, pretty much all real life friends from cons, and how would relatively random people ever find me even on public social media?
>>10497022Will The order get combined if you in example order a wig from shop x and cosplay from shop y? Or do you have to pay for the shipping for two separate items? I have always ordered my items through bhiner but they’re getting shady lately
>>10497165You can combine orders on bhiner. You should move this conversation to the Taobao thread instead though, since they’ll be able to help you more.
>>10486438I don't play chink shit.
>>10486438I want nothing more than for this game to finally kill FGO.
>>10497476y'all know it won't. other than being a gacha its hardly the same audience.
>>10497476Fgo had been dead in the ground since arknights came out though
>>10498361fgo's got fifteen years of a behemoth franchise behind it... desu it might not be trendy anymore but i dont see arknights releasing a slew of anime, manga and console games a year. fate is just not in the same arena
>>10498368Fate =/= FGO, tard. FGO as a racha is dead asf.
>>10498370as long as they still release content on fgo fate fans are going to still play the events. calm down bro
>>10498397Diehard fans playing a game doesn’t mean the game isn’t dead everywhere else. Stop getting autistic about your favorite gacha being dead asf to the rest of the world
>>10498549>my friends dont play it so its deadthe jp fgo twitter has 12 million twitter followers atm and arknights has less than 200k. just because you're playing something doesn't mean other people are>inb4 stop stanningi dont care for fgo either and much prefer genshin; however, you're being stupid
Coaplaying fischl, her costume is more revealing than I like. Might switch the see-through parts of the bodice for tight-like material,Actually, any material reccomendations for fischl is HIGHLY appericated
>>10498551 >a bunch of followers from a game’s heyday means that a game is still alive!!1!Most people don’t bother to unfollow when they lose interest, it doesn’t mean that it’s not dead lmfao. You clearly are not in the gacha community, the core casual and majority international player base of FGO moved on to other gachas. Cosplays aren’t being made of all the new outfits anymore because people don’t really care about FGO as much. There’s not even 25% of the amount of fan content being produced of FGO as there was 1.5-2 years ago. Arknights died too, they needed the push at AX to continue hype in the west but everyone knows how that went.>jp fgo twitter 2 million>arknights twitter 200kArknights is a Chinese game, retard. They use weibo, which is over 1 mil in less than half the time that FGO’s been out. Sure Arknights and FGO probably do fine in their home countries and have dedicated fanbases, but in terms of internationally and with the casual gacha crowd, they’re both dead as hell. Genshin is headed the same way too with the rate of content. Get your head out of your ass, old man, don’t talk if you have no idea about how to read trends.
I think I might be gay for Zhongli. Want to cosplay him but no clue how. Fairly simple design but no experience.
>>10500266>fairly simple designyeah we can tell you don't have any experience
>>10500432Compared to everyone else in Genshin, he doesn't seem too bad. The sheer quantity of embroidery required would be terrifying, but as far as I can tell, there aren't too many parts compared to some others.>Tan button-down shirt.>Slim black dress pants, w/embroidered design.>Black dress shoes, fairly easy design, brown sole.>White tie w/gold diamond thing, could be made of foam and applied to tie.>Yellow Geo Vision- pretty hard to do, maybe resin cast the shape?>Black-tipped bluish grey cravat/neckerchief under tan shirt.>Black belt w/squared infinity design.Now the two coats are what scare me due to funky color blending which I have NO idea how to do. The vest/waistcoat underneath seems to be the easier one, with just those raised designs and the scale pattern being awful. Lazy way out of slapping decal on outfit possible here. The tassles and hem seem easy enough, same with buttons although finding that shape could be hard. The color is fairly consistent throughout, just a medium brown.But the overcoat... good lord, where do I even begin. The main color is dark brown with some black patches, sleeves that transition to a lighter brown with even lighter brown patterns sewn into them. The large cuffs seem like they've be very hard to shape right, and have both light bluish grey designs sewn in and the raised gold bits. The shoulders could just be foam pads, easy enough to shape, paint, score and stick on the suit. The whole clasp at the front just makes me want to die, it's an odd shape and would have to be made of something strong enough to actually hold the suit together, and maybe it connects to the coat underneath? Then there's even MORE embroidered/sewn designs on a part that would be awkward to shape, and a little pin. This piece would have to be almost entirely custom tailored.I can't think of too many characters that I'd like to cosplay that would be easier, though... Maybe Bennet? Not Childe, he'd be about as rough as Zhongli.
>>10500448Any character is "simple" if you consolidate the details down to a simple description like "brown coat". Childe is significantly easier than Zhongli and you should consider cosplaying him instead. You don't even have to make a separate shirt and jacket for child, you can simply sew the collar and hem parts to the jacket and make the whole thing just one piece.
I want to cosplay chonhyun he is my tank for some reason LOL
I'm preparing for making Bennet's outfit. But I have trouble understanding his outfit. His backside if you play him looks like he is wearing suspenders, but the front absolutely doesn't. It looks a bit more like ribbons from the vest. Or is it suspenders which are not attached to the front? I'm honestly confused.
view from the backsideI do like his little bunny ears style collar / hood though! his overall design is actually pretty neat!
>>10501659>>10501664Looks like the gold v things in front are the suspenders but they're not latched to anything
>>10501659I agree with the other anon in that they look like suspenders that aren’t attached. When making them, I think you should make them like normal suspenders, attach them in the back normally, and then use snaps/magnets hidden under his collar to anchor the suspenders to your shoulders. That way the front can hang loose and look unattached but the suspenders are still secure.
>>10500610I'm probably just gonna start with a Treasure Hoarder since they're VERY simple, and I could spout their lines at cons near other Genshin cosplayers, who could pretend to beat me up.
>>10501692>>10501697thanks for the help, I will go with the suspenders version then. The magnet is actually a very nice idea to keep the loose ends attached, thank you very much!
>>10486484just do it anyways
are there any cosplayers of chongyun or razor by now? need to see my boys
Today I browsed worldcosplay/curecos for genshin stuff and there was barely anything on there.
>>10506297does anyone even use that shit anymore?it'll be a while before decent GI cosplays come out. Emphasis on decent, because surely you can keep finding shooped-on westerner cosplays under social media hashtags.
>>10501659the straps go under his arm pitsso I guess they're just looped and placed around his arms
>>10506297>worldcosplay/curecosPeople still browse these sites? They’ve been dead for like 6+ years.

>>10506532I throw up a photo every now and then there but I agree, these mass photo based sites are of a bygone era. They're not the goto for most people anymore in terms of hot content or views.
I've just been sitting on my ass, waiting for the Switch version to come out. Here's hoping it actually gets released before the hype dies off for good.
Planning on doing a Xiao cosplay when I finish my current project, but this character is also pretty tempting. I really like his hat
>>10506375>>10506532OK, you guys were right. I ended up finding way more stuff in compilation albums on a different site. But to be fair, it was one of the few easy ways for me to discover cosplayers from east and southeast asia. Feed-based sites like twitter are awful for browsing in comparison.
>>10496710>Ask the person you used to go to if they have someone they can refer you to and trust in terms of quality and pricing fairly perhaps?sadly she deleted her email and all forms of social media. I genuinely wonder what happened
>>10501659Good luck on this!
Does anyone know of any stores selling accessories kits for the characters? I know The Dangerous Ladies has some but they sent me a majorly fucked up kit and refused to answer my emails and dm's, so I don't want to support them anymore.
how long until >any non-chinese/taiwanese/macaunese/hongkongnese cosplayer cosplaying a liyue character gets "cancelled" for "cultural appropriation">white pasty fakeboi cosplayers facetaping and digital face-warping to look like schlongli oppa
>>10510050>any non-chinese/taiwanese/macaunese/hongkongnese cosplayer cosplaying a liyue character gets "cancelled" for "cultural appropriation"no one gives a shit about eastern asian appropriation, so this'll never happen
>>10510050>any non-chinese/taiwanese/macaunese/hongkongnese cosplayer cosplaying a liyue character gets "cancelled" for "cultural appropriation"Won't happen or everyone would be cancelled for cosplaying from any anime>white pasty fakeboi cosplayers facetaping and digital face-warping to look like schlongli oppaProbably as soon as cosplays are done since this happens to every male character
>>10486484Thats like saying you cant cosplay any anime shit cuz the character is usually asian, go for it! If you want a character with your skintone, Xinyan is really pretty too, same shade as kaeya.>>10486691I dont think him as a best boy is weird, but if u like a character that looks 12 sexually you're a pedo.

Also furries cosplaying razor with his stand possibly>>10488725I cant see it dying with so many areas left unexplored, people ll get curious at some point right? I dont think the gacha system is the problem, its the adventure lvl. Ive seen people quit beacuse you need to advance like 5 levels to do 1 archon quest then repeat but multiply the level by 2. That wouldnt be a problem but you cant even grind it right with the daily crystal things system. Some days ill be on for hours then some not at all, people like me get tired quick at this>>10488910Youre guaranteed a 5 star every 90 pulls if i remember right, the pity system or whatever.

>hog-faced hamplanets in Mona leotardsNoNo please
>tfw want to do albedo>tfw shit at drawing
>>10527572It's a cosplay. It doesn't matter if you have the same skills as the character or not. I'm assuming you can't also make rock flowers that boost you off the ground either.
Im stuck between fischl keqing and lumineall the patterns on the dresses seem difficult to do so im not usre if maybe ill use fabric paint or just buy fabric of the color and manually stitch and design myself which ive seen people do on BOTW cosplays.any thoughts on who may be the easiest to tackle? i'm not buying anything except perhaps the wig already semi done up.
>>10527888Why are you deadset on making something outside of your skill range? Good handmade > good storebought > bad handmade > bad storebought.
>>10527888I really don't recommend either outfit if you're a beginner AND want accuracy/good construction in your project. There are so many tight curves, 3D (non-fabric) parts, and intricate details that might as well be custom weaves. If you want to try your hand at a fantasy outfit within Genshin, I recommend breaking down a simpler outfit (I.e. Klee) and just plan out how you'd even make one individual part of it to start.
>>10527916>>10527948i meant to state i have experience and all the materials but i haven't done anything recent year and a half-ish. last project took 2 months so im not looking to spend a whole lot of time.
>>10527969Then just flip a coin and work on a project until you give up halfway 2 months through.
>>10527969>so im not looking to spend a whole lot of time.Good luck rushing a complicated build. Your costume is gonna look like shit.
>>10527916>bad storebought > bad handmadeFtfy
>>10497047Do your art cause you love it. Not because you’re hoping for follows.
Anyone who can read moonrunes have pics from bilibili/chinese SNS/the 25th Firefly Animation Carnival at Guangzhou?https://youtu.be/Lxg9Fi5lZXQ
I’ve already seen a sexy Paimon and I hate it.
>>10532232Sexy Paimon has been a thing ever since the game came out because Paimon —> Oppaimon. It’s gross.
>>10532232wow you've seen a sexy anime cosplay. shocking. thank you for reporting that.
>>10532241Wow a sexualized child character what’s the big deal?
>>10532252bro, I saw a slutty helga from hey arnold walking around last halloween. its not that deep
>>10532252put it in your dni sweetie. no one cares. post cosplay/cosplay questions or go.
>>10530475What if gaining more social interactions on my projects give me more motivation to make them and faster in a positive feedback?
>>10532184There's a bunch on Weibo if you search for the firefly expo or Genshin or Klee.
>>10532256That's valid, but after a certain point you can't guarantee that feedback and you have to find something internal to motivtate you
>>10532330This is a hobby board. You are welcome to discuss this on a discord or whatever but why do you think we want to talk about it here? We're already plagued with thirst posting we don't need more off topic dumb shit
>>10532330no one cares about your fandom drama. don't you have some voice actors to harass?
>>10532330Fuck, I thought 16 yo's were banned from 4chan
excited for beidou cosplays popping up. i love the electro wife
>>10532651has there been many cosplay posts at all with cons closed? at the very least from countries that are open?
>>10532787seen a fair share of gi cosplays being posted on facebook. they just cosplay at home
>>10532651This Beidou is pretty alright.
The more I look at Genshin designs the more I realize the costume choices are shotas, leotards, and lolis in muumuus. I sort of wish there's more than one style of fantasy attire in the game.
>>10534959half the designs are lifted from fgo and other anime and the world/ui design from botw. what are you expecting
>>10486438You made a typo in your post, Venti is second best, Zhongli is first
>>10486484Cosplay is about having fun yourself, appeasing others comes second. Do what you want :)
>>10486718Beidou is best girl
>>10534959Each region has its own style of clothing, look at concept art or characters from other regions
>>10535187anon, they have four models they use for all of their mc's and seven of the girls are aldi brand saberfaces
>>10535214>seven of the girls are aldi brand saberfacesI kek'd so fucking hard at this. It's true though, they made one base model for each height and just made adjustments to the features.
>>10535242it didn't fully hit me how many saberfaces they had until i kept seeing genshintwit retweet artoria art with "i thought this was [insert blonde genshin here]"
>>10535245that's because the game is creatively bankrupt. it's fun, but you can't go into it like >>10535187 expecting much. it's just a fun game with cute characters.
>>10535245There are a bunch of edits floating around showing how similar some of the Genshin characters are to some of the Fate characters. I wouldn't be surprised if the character designs were strongly influenced by Fate since Mihoyo is known to be influenced by other preexisting media that they're fans of.
>>10535253>Mihoyo is known to be influenced by other preexisting media that they're fans of.they are just trying to make money by piggybacking. it's not that deep.
>>10535253jean (the one edited here) in particular is ridiculous. she's the head of the knights and has a wind sword... and is named jean. you might as well stick an ahoge on her and be done with it
>>10535256"taking inspiration" from extremely popular nasushit is pretty embarrassing.
>>10535268I do get it, if you are just trying to make a fun, shallow game you know people will like then copying popular designs is a good way to do it. i could laugh off jean if lumine and barbara weren't also saberfaces AND half the other characters look similar enough to fgo ones that I do a double when I see them on twitter
>>10535276If only Fate had a game with actually fun gameplay, so there would be a singular reason to get into the fandom. Even Fate/Stay Night is just babby's first VN with highly mediocre writing.
>>10535293the extra remake looks promising on the gameplay front, but this is neither /v/ nor a fate thread
>>10535293there's the psp games but it's probably hard to get into the plot if you're not at least a bit familiar with the original VN and some of the side material in passing
>>10532651this one is also pretty
>>10535430the shoop on her eyes is fucking terrifying.
>>10535443the... circle lenses? she doesnt have that much shoop around her eyes
>>10535547nayrt but the fact that she shopped her eye whites pure white makes here circle lenses pop in a way that looks uncanny valley and makes her eyes look like plastic.
>>10535798pretty sure thats just the overly bright ring light at overall filter. i have those circle lenses... they just look like that
>>10535803anon, there's no veins or anything.
>>10535814It's a phone selfie. When was the last time you saw eye veins in a phone selfie anon?
>>10535835Why are you wking so hard for that chick and her shitty Aliexpress “cosplay”? It’s obvious that she brightened the shit out of her eye whites with an editing app, no one is retarded enough to think that’s what her eyes naturally look like except for you.
>>10535838im not op tho. just saying phone selfies are shit quality since they auto edit anyway
>>10535840Learn to sage and no, not all phones auto edit. That girl’s eyes look like glass from overbrightening. To claim her eyes aren’t shooped is retarded.
Has anyone considered using that patterned silk-looking stuff for characters from Liyue? People used to cosplay the Kou Empire squad from Magi with it and imo it looked good for their designs (pic is some random shit taken off aliexpress as proof of concept). I'm just not loving how flat a lot of the cosplays are looking right now.
>>10535868Do you mean like jacquards and similar textured fabrics to lend more believability to fantasy type costumes?
>>10535882Yeah a jacquard would work too. I was thinking of the "silk" blend people use for cheongsams but really any textured fabric with the right weight would probably work.
>>10535884>>10535882I realized the words I was thinking of were indeed satin brocade. I'm just stupid at 2 in the morning
now thats a lot of editing
>>10536039is.. the wig drawn on?
>>10536039Her makeup makes her look like a domestic abuse victim, yikes.
>>10536039the editing is so bad it looks like artifacting
What's the best option(s) for cosplaying Genshin if you're overweight?
>>10536111If your chubby you 100% need to make your own cosplay of commission one because a store bought will never look flattering. As for characters I think Klee, Qiqi, and Barbara would be good picks because their outfits would work well to complement you, unless you want to cosplay a male character.
>>10536111Seconding Klee and Qiqi. Their bell-shaped tops will help disguise any chub. You’re fucked if you want to cosplay male characters though since they’re all noodles.
>>10536111I’m big and I’m going to cosplay Venti and Lumine because fuck it. Either make your own cosplay or buy one custom sized. Us big people can’t cheap out on our cosplays. Go all out and make it beautiful.
>>10536224no amount of money can pull off a fat venti, anon.
>>10536039That's an awful fucking background. Yikes.
>>10536357Well I’m working on losing weight so maybe I’ll be thinner by the time I get to cosplaying him. But in the meantime I just have to work with what I’ve got.
>>10536445How much weight do you plan to lose though? Venti is a cosplay that’ll be unflattering on anyone who isn’t a noodley twink.
>>10536455I don’t have an exact plan, all I know is that I’m losing weight. I’ll just continue my diet and exercise until I’m at a healthy weight again. I guess I’ll have to judge when I think I can do Venti. There’s always going to be someone who doesn’t like a cosplay, so hopefully the fact that I’m very short will help make up for not being a complete noodle.
>>10486459>please pray with me this fandom won’t become utter shit too quickly.tfw prayers went unanswered
>friends want to all cosplay genshin>cool I'd love to cosplay beidou>check taobao>only the shit-tier beidou and meh tier makers taking beidou preorders>a thousand options for venti/zhongli/keqing/qiqi/ningguang including the S-tier cosdelusion cosplays>friends were going to do Venti and Zhong of course>cosdelusion not planning to make beidou at allMy heart hurts that she's unpopular. And yes I can toil to make my own but it just sucks that I'm the only one who has to and my costume will probably look inconsistent against the others.
>>10537609the one in stores isnt that bad. Just dont wear a shitty bra that shows underneath. and improve it yourself with a little altering. dokidokicos just added it to their store too
>>10537688Different anon, but this doesn't look good. The fabric is paper thin and the shine on the stretch pieces looks so cheap. Even her wig is shitty
>>10537688>the one in stores isnt that badThis looks terrible, anon.
>>10537688>a little alteringThat looks like it would have to be made entirely from scratch, anon. That fur and all the fabric choices are so sad looking.
>>10537688Looks cheap and the photo angle and fatness of the person aren't helping.
>>10537609She'll probably be more popular once she has presence in the story/her own side quest.
>>10486484Just get another female friend and cosplay as Electro and Cryo Cicin Mages, maybe if you want to do a perfect cosplay act as a schizo too
