Christmas waifus edition.

Did you all log in for the voucher in JP? Did you see the girls in the main screen?

I've seen a couple of cosplays of the new idolised set, but I'd love to see a full group in adorable choir dresses.
>>
Used my ticket and got my first and only Nozo SR on the JP server. Gave me Christmas feels.
>>
Soon it won't be Christmas-sy enough, and group photos are going to take a while, so fuck it, another self post of snowy waifu - this time not a shitty webcam photo. I know my wig looks bad, I should have checked it before the shoot.
>>
>>8780207
>no Umi

My girl is so rare that anon didn't even bother to rank her.
>>
>>8780453
Got my voucher only for a R umi :(
>>
>>8780840
I think this anon is wrong, Nozomi and Nico are always taken first. There are groups that end up left without Kotori. Umi is somewhere in the middle.
>>
>>8780564
your face is so round and gross.
>>
>>8780899
>implying round faces don't work best for Nozomi
>>
>>8780861
Nozomi is definitely easiest to find in my neck of the woods. I feel like any girl who's self-conscious about not being a five foot tall stick thin idol goes for her first, because she's the curviest one.

For science, though, let's all try and get an accurate count the next con meetup we each go to, I'm pretty curious now.
>>
>>8780957
fat fucking jowl chins don't. she just looks like one of those fat girls who thinks tits=pretty
>>
Any suggestions for a good Maki wig? I don't like the choice Arda has(for both color and style) but I want a good quality one that sits naturally like her hair.
>>
>>8781083
You sound like one of those girls who think that aging is the worst thing that can happen to you and will consider suicide when the first wrinkle shows up.
>>
>>8780861
I think it depends on where you are, Kotori and Nico are also most common around the cons in my area. Rin for least common and Umi/Hanayo for 2nd least common.
>>
Is it just me or is there someone hitting these threads and incessantly shitting on Nozomi's? That cosplayer definitely isn't perfect but she's fine. There's lots worse out there. There's someone lurking in these threads with a Nozomi shrine being unnecessarily salty over their waifu. .

In my area Kotori and Nozomi are the most popular, with Maki and Rin also being very popular and then Nico. All the others are less common.
>>
Which color scheme of the girls do you prefer, the anime/movie scheme or the School Idol Festival scheme?

Anime/Movie:
Honoka - Red (sometimes pink or yellow/orange)
Kotori - Turquoise / Dark Green
Umi - Dark Blue
Hanayo - Orange
Rin - Light Green
Maki - Magenta/Purple
Nico - Pink (sometimes red)
Eli - Light Blue
Nozomi - Purple

School Idol Festival:
Honoka - Orange
Kotori - Silver/White/Grey
Umi - Dark Blue
Hanayo - Green
Rin - Yellow
Maki - Red
Nico - Pink
Eli - Light Blue
Nozomi - Purple


I personally prefer the School idol festival colors more. I hate Maki in Magenta, and I Honoka in Red is not that good either. Though i do think it would've looked good if they kept the dark green/turqouise on Kotori
>>
>>8781570
I prefer SIF too, except I do like putting Kotori in turquoise.
>>
>>8781570
I think both fits Hanayo very well and generally I feel like she has the best matching colours and also outfits whether in game or anime. Maybe that's just me
>>
>>8781514
Sorry for autism but holy that Nico's eyes are sliding off her face.
>>
>>8781081
I'll be paying attention at Katsucon. When I saw the pictures from AX though separated by each girl, I was STUNNED. There were 4 Honokas in a con of thousands and thousands of people.
>>
>>8781422
I don't know that it's a spergy neckbeard, it's probably just a Nozomi cosplayer mad that someone else cosplays her who picks on other Nozomis to feel better about her own shitty cosplay.
>>
This entire thread is off topic save for 4 posts maybe. Get it together, this is /cgl/.

>>8780564
can gross fatties stop cosplaying nozomi?
>>
>>8784490
Haha, I am, thanks! I bought this one from acos on taobao, since my group didn't really want to make them. The quality is pretty good (the sash is really interesting with how it's made, since they put a wire on one side so that it would look floaty in photos), but the S is a few inches too short for me at 5'4"

I'm planning to cosplay this nico next month and was wondering if anyone could give me a few pointers on how to get the cut outs on the collar? I'm stumped on how to get them clean cut with no fraying.
>>
>>8785947
if you have a huge amount of time, sew the edges (like, just completely cover the edges with thread, a straight stitch is what it seems to be called?)

otherwise, maybe just cover them with some fraying sealant thing (there are liquids sold for this afaik) or if it's a synthetic material you could try the burning method.
>>
>>8786000
ahh thanks anon! i was thinking of using duchess satin for certain parts so I might use a polyester satin and give the burning method a go!

>>8786000
You mean satin stitch, I think.

do you guys think this wig is an alright color for nozomi? I got it for christmas with no specific character to use it for, but recently I've gotten back into love live and I like a lot of her outfits. I'm just worried it doesn't look good since I see a lot of nozomis with wigs that are way off,like greyish or super bright purple.

>>8786672
Looks fine to me, and I see Nozomis hair as more muted anyway

I think is fine, I prefer a more greyish-desaturated purple for her, like in the game/anime, but your wig is fine too. Like you said, the super bright ones are the worst in my opinion.

>>
>>8786895
At least they have a sense of humor about it. If you did the same thing in 'Murica with a sign that said 'Chub Live' Tumblr would eat them alive.
>>
>>8787276
Every time I see this I get irrationally angry. All of their boobs are lopsided. Umi is literally just a man in a bikini. This artist clearly had no idea what any female body actually looks like.
>>
>>8787276
Dear god why are they all so ugly?
Did this tumblrfag decide that they were all transqueernonbinarysexualplzdontoppress or some shit?
>>
>>8787276
I really don't care for this artist's style but desu the thing that bugs me the most is that Nozomi and I have nearly the same given measurements (except for waist, because her waist is impossibly tiny). I know these artists aren't paying attention to given weights/etc, but it still makes me feel like they're calling me fat too. I struggle with ED too so it's just... gah. I know they're trying to "add" representation but it just comes off as stereotypical and offensive to me. Especially because Pana and Honk are canonically the ones that have trouble with their weight.
>>
>>8787353
Don't let this shitty art get to you anon. No one sees Nozomi and think she looks like this artist depicted her. The same way no one thinks Eli has a manface or Umi has the body of a 16 year old competitive male swimmer. This artist clearly has no idea how to draw realistic bodies, look at all the fucked up proportions.
>>
>>8787379
>Nozomi and think she looks like this artist depicted her.
sept fat fucks, but they think anything with tits looks obese like them.
>>
>>8787353
Nozomi is thicker than the other girls, but not overweight, not even by Japanese standards.
Tumblr just seems to think that weight is black and white, you're either a frail stick or a giant bread roll.
>>
>>8787276
How is this 'body positivity'? They took a group of Asian girls and made them all white/white passing and arbitrarily made nico dark? (Also the slanty asian eyes.... IDK what to say about those).
>>
>>8787353
>impossibly tiny
her waist is 60 cm, that's slim but not all that small for girls of her size
>>
>>8787276
I've seen this several times but I just noticed Honoka and Rin's armpits....
>>
>>8781570
I always felt like Kotori was a gree girl, I mean they have Eri in light blue and Umi in Dark so I dont see why they cant have green/dark green or turquoise for kotori like the movie colours.
>>
>>8784441
I think this is a kinda weird nitpick but you smile makes you look like youre in pain...

I think maybe try do slightly angrier/neutral looking brows?
>>

I think the new choir set is really cute. I've got a big pile of white fabric laying around, so I may have enough to make a large portion of Eli's outfit. I even already have a basic white wool beret. Also the entire set doesn't show their shoes, so that's a nice bonus for anybody trying to match shoes.

It's not bad, but I feel like they should've released it during summer or spring, not january. Also, it's just really similar in feel to the magician/royalty set. It'll be either Umi or Eli paired, right? Why would you give solge URs such a silly theme?
>>
>>8780861
Basically everyone in the Washington/Oregon scene only ever want to be Nozomi or Kotori. It's nearly impossible to find a Rin, Umi, Honoka, or Nico.

I also ordered this one but Hanayo!
>>
>>8790574
I lucked out that I have two friends who do LL cosplay too. One likes doing Rin and the other switches between Maki and Nico. My go to is are usually Eli or Nozomi, but I also like Hanayo. So thankfully we've got some flexibility with the three of us at least.
>>
>girls who do voice covers of LL songs
Thoughts? I think it can be acceptable if they're bringing something original to it (different language, swapped genders, different songs, etc) but the girls who do just straight covers of the vanilla songs in Japanese are boring, and especially cringey when they claim they sound like a specific voice actress... It's like bitch, do you have a natural Japanese accent and spent years in voice training and experience in the industry? Didn't think so.

I prefer if it's at least a different color than Rin's hair color if it's in a group. Since in pictures, they are different colors. At least some arts.
>>
>>8791286
Looking at the art >>8790973 >>8790973 >>8790973 >>8788180

Honoka's hair is a bit of a darker, warmer orange. If a group ends up with two wigs of the same color, the Honoka's wig could be lightly tinted with some brown.

Depends on the cosplayer, I think-- girls with very pale skin can pull off a bright orange wig, but girls with tan skin or yellow undertones need something a little more subtle. Her hair color varies with the art, so just go with what works best.

Does anyone have a suggestion on a good Maki wig? I was thinking of just ordering this one but figured it'd be good to check here before deciding.

Nozomi has almost perfect measurements with 90-60-82. No idea why tumblr thinks feminine == obese. No idea why they always act like they're all body positive and shit, when they and those pictures clearly aren't.
God Rin, I'm so sorry for how they drew you.
>>
>>8798186
Hanayo is canonically chubby and Nozomi just has big boobs, but for some reason tumblr thinks Nozomi is the fat one bc big boobs=u gotta be fat
>>
>>8798186
Tumblr probably thinks they are inches and not cm.
>>
Hanayo isn't even chubby though according to her measurements.
>>
>>8798414
It's mostly in her thighs which is never included in measurements. I think thats why she wears tights instead of sockd with her uniform. Also she's one of the shorter ones and an 80cm bust looks very different on a 5' 1" girl compared to a 5'8" girl.
>>
>>8798425
> Also she's one of the shorter ones and an 80cm bust looks very different on a 5' 1" girl compared to a 5'8" girl.

As far as I can tell I have very similar proportions to her (a little taller and bigger in each measurement by about 1-3 inches for each one) and I always have people complaining they could be as skinny as me. Though I think she is supposed to be chubby in the sense that she has more squish to her than the others.
>>
>>8798430
Considering how much she loves rice and eating, she is probably a bit softer then the others. Like I could imagine her being a bit softer in the thighs and stomach, she could have a slightly heavier frame too.
>>
>>8798441
I don't seem to have that comparative three sizes chart, but Hanayo seemed thicker comparatively to the rest. Bear in mind Japan also has different standards for chubby, so in addition to that it doesn't seem implausible!
>>
>>8798414
Hanayo has the biggest measurements of the girls except for Eli and Nozomi, and she's quite a bit shorter than those two. Also, Asian girls tend to have quite small bone structures and start looking pudgy at a lower weight than white girls.

But mainly, Japan is just really weird about what they consider chubby.
>>
>>8798463
But then again, Japanese girls are also extremely short, and their diet does not really make one fat
>>
>>8798460
>>8798463

The measurements are all here http://schoolido.lu/idols/

Eh, I don't think that Hanayo's measurements would be considered chubby even by Japanese standards. She'd probably be about a size 2 in american sizes, which seems to be considered average in Japan?

I think that she's not meant to be chubby in the sense that she's fat or overweight, just that she's squishy and not in shape. Skinnyfat, if you will.
>>
>>8798468
>>8798468
If you do any taobao or shopping for lolita brands you can tell quickly their size standards are much different. An Asian XL garment is more like an 8-10 US. Smaller people in general and not a lot of huge portion sizes.

What I find hilarious is in the anime they have a whole episode dedicated to putting Hanayo and Honks on a diet and exercise routine. But in the mobile game Hanayo tries to diet and everyone acts like she's anorexic and tell her that her chub is part of her appeal and she needs the energy to keep up her performance stamina.
>>
>>8798494
maybe it went so horribly in the anime they decided it was best to just leave it alone...

what's even funnier to me is that Nozomi is actually larger than Hanayo in measurements even with height taken into account, but no one ever calls Nozomi chubby or says she should diet even once.
I'm guessing they're all afraid of the consequences if they were to say something like that to her.
>>
>>8795134
A friend got hers here and it looked great, nice blonde color, not shiny, didn't see any wefts poking out. The ponytail is pretty fluffy too. http://tw.taobao.com/item/44625356772.htm?spm=a1z3p.7398038.1414651174895.4.NiC45F
>>
>>8798504
are you seriously trying to say that she's not fat enough to be called fat? this is some tumblr inception bs right here. it's about insecurity not legit issues/weight.
>>
>>8798494
I think that episode was more that they had gained a lot more weight, which is a pretty big deal because they gained it on top of idol activities. I think the worry was that they wouldn't be able to keep up with the rest of the members. It is a bit silly, though. I guess Hanayo's regular, slightly-"chubby" frame is what they're talking about in terms of her appeal.

Who knows.

For those doing the Cyber Outfits, any tips/tricks for the headphones? Such as where to get the jewels, etc.

I'm not really confident in my crafting skills (I don't want it to look bad in comparison to a decent pre-made outfit) but at the same time I don't really want to spend $24 on just the headphones alone. Here is the link if anyone is interested though: http://world.taobao.com/item/45427918691.htm?spm=a312a.7700714.0.0.f6toBw
>>
>>8801749
Honestly, it might be worth to just spend the $24 on something premade. Yes you can make them yourself, and maybe make them look a bit nicer, but the supplies + your time will be worth much much more than $24.

If you're still considering it, I like these types of lights over the LED ones that is shown in the taobao link

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Neon-LED-Light-Glow-EL-Wire-String-Strip-Rope-Tube-Car-Dance-Party-Controller-/261933370268?var=560757246197&hash=item3cfc720b9c:m:mbXexSq9YgJCukdvrkqGPPg

As far as the gems go, you could probably just cut the ears of the headband with the flower shape, and back it with colored acrylic/plastic/velum and then back light it.
>>
>>8801749
I'm also in the same position, and frankly I think I'm gonna try making them. I was thinking of getting a LED strip which is around 8 euros/m, and buy some inexpensive headphones second-hand or at the dollar store. I think making the gems glow is over my skill level, so I'd probably just get some clear ones and paint the bottom with nail polish like so https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wcXbzQflfLo
Probably will be making the ears themselves with EVA foam and covering with some leftover worbla, but I really think that if you're careful this last step is really not necessary.
>>
>>8798504
it's probably because Nozomi has a larger frame?
Like myself, I have a pretty large bone structure and people say I look a good 20 lbs lighter than I am when I'm at a comfortable weight just because of how broad my shoulders/hips are, I can carry the weight without it 'weighing' me down looks wise. Hanayo probably has a thinner frame but packs on weight in different ways than curvy Nozoom.
>>
>>8801831
nozomi never makes her weight a point in the show. hanayo has an episode and a story in the game dedicated to her desire to lose weight.

other than that Hanayo actually has more of an hourglass shape, Nozomi is topheavy, but with smaller hips, shes not nearly as curvy as hanayo.
>>
>>8801749
I'm buying the outfit, but going to make the headphones. It'll be a fun challenge


also, monkey Nozomi is supercute!

It's obvious the artist wasn't trying to draw them as the original artist intended, though. Just like most cutesy animes, Love Live has same-facing with different eye colors/hair/tit sizes. Nothing wrong with it-I think it's adorable-but this artist wanted to draw everyone unique and it's not my cup of tea but I can appreciate it. Anime artists could design characters more variably than color coded girls with slightly different eye shapes, especially if they're going to be throwing them in the same school uniform.

I think the girls in the show calling Honoka and Hanayo too thick when they look the same waist size as everyone else is worse than drawing Nozomi fat in a non-mocking way desu.
>>
>>8802529
I don't think it's exactly that she gains weight. Like a few of us have been saying, it seems to have more to do with how much squish she has to her compared to others rather than the size of her body or her weight.

Same-face is preferable to this garbage. The characters don't even have the same basic traits as their original designs, Nico shouldn't be tanned when her charm point is her pale skin and there is no reason why Umi or Rin should be drawn with squinty pointed eyes when their eye shapes are anything but that. It's lazy "variety" that hardly reflects anything from the original source material.

Physical differences among idols in a group are generally more subtle, you could make them not same-face/same-body without resorting to ugly man-face/man-bodies.

This. Let's be honest most Japanese high school girls aren't going to look vastly different from each other. I had a hard time following Wake Up Girls! because too many girls looked too similar on top of the fact the characters weren't super memorable.

Also it depends on the art but the Love Live girls have different eye shapes I think it's mostly in the anime art. In the game there's soem variations because there's multiple artists.
>>

I suspect all the ugly faces and overweight bodies etc are because these Tumblr people are ugly and/or overweight. They don't get any attention from guys/girls and thus draw everyone ugly as some sort of projected self-hatred/bitterness.

Yep! I was going to remove the ear cups (?) use masking tape to get even lines and just paint it with some acrylics.

Fair warning that I forgot to mention. The drivers from the EL wire will not fit in the ear cups so if you plan on putting it in there you'll have to get smaller ones. (I got lucky and had a local place that carried some, but I still had to do some soldering)

There's a general consensus that Kotori/Nico gets the most decorated/cutesy cards and that Solge trio (Eli/Umi/Maki) get more sexy/fan-service cards. Umi may get more boring cards because she isn't a very flashy girl, but in general many fans complain that Rin gets the most plain cards (especially event cards).

I'd say go for one of the two Hanayo ones. Honoka's looks so simple you might give the impression that you just pulled a random dress out of your wardrobe and called it a day (especially since it's not a popular card). I really adore the Marine set, but the first one looks complicated enough to be a challenge (the apron, mainly) but simple enough to still be called an easy costume.

I really hope they continue to release muse cards for awhile. But as it is JP has waaaaaaaaaaaaay too many cards and way too few spots to hold them. To be fair the recent sets (Animals, Circus, Victorian, Carolers) have been very questionable on idolized designs so maybe it's time to take a break. Ninjas was the last time I think the whole set looked good but even then a handful weren't really that ninja-like
>>
>>8808284
so long as they get their own separate boxes i'll be happy. I don't want to waste a pull on cards i dont want
>>
>>8808501
I agree, carolers had a few nice ones like Rin and Honoka but the others were a clusterfuck, and I didn't even like the Ninja so for me the last nice set was the summer swimwear set...

I feel like if klab wants to add in Aqours to keep the game alive.. they need to do a whole lot more then that.

No matter how much I love Muse, and my best girl, I burn out of events since it's nothing more then repeating the same beat maps and watching my stamina all the time. It's not that it isn't fun, it's just that they really need to add more.

I don't like Cinderella Girls nearly as much as I love Muse, but goddamn you can't deny that Starlight Stage looks amazing. Half the reason I play it is just to see those nice 3D models dancing around.

I'm going to make one of the white summer dresses so that I can wear it on like a Friday for a con and also wear it on a normal sunny day on vacation. I love nautical themed stuff so I'm very bias towards the marine set so those would be my top 2 choices.

i need help deciding on a cosplay that's kinda casual but still cute and recognizable? Leaning towards Nico's gymwear, but again, I'm afraid it won't be recognized.
Thoughts and ideas?
>>
>>8808284
I just can't get over how they all have the same body and a lot of them have really ugly hair, or they look like a mixture of the other girls.
I'm just really not excited for them at all, I like both the original [email protected] girls and CG, along with ML, but Aqours just feels... like they made them up all in one night or something? I dunno.
>>
>>8809317
All the Nicos are really good choices. Her gym clothes are easily recognizable too.
>>
>>8809317
Gym Nico is recognizable for whom you want it to be recognizable. It's a solid choice if you want casual.
>>
I mean, I already like aquors, but they need their own game! Especially since I'm trying to cosplay every member of μ's before sunshine happens
>>
>>8809317
Cheerleader Nico and Valentine Nico are perfectly reconized
>>
>>8808284
Designs are kind of boring, eyes look like Abrams style lens flares and would it have killed them to make one tan girl? They're basically in Okinawa
>>
>>8809593
My biggest issue in Aqours is that the only variety is in their hair styles. Bodies, faces, and voices are generally the same.
>>
>>8809593
>>8809959

Agreed, for example with Nozomi and Eli you could really see them as the oldest few in the group, but Aqours just all look so alike, I can't tell who's supposed to be young and who's older.
>>
>>8810053
The half foreigner is kinda tall and that's about it. I'm going to get a few of them mixed up in the beginning. With the first season I got Umi and Nozomi confused now and then but their personalities are so different it didn't last long.

I also feel with the muse girls their hair colors looked nice together. They are all sort of on a spectrum. The Aquors have that too but it's much more muted.
>>
>>8809365
>>8809372
>>8809454

Thank you! I'll probably go ahead and cosplay gym Nico then, and sneak in another cosplay if I have the funds.
>>
>>8810099
Also when it comes to foreigner I wish we had her be flat out French or something, instead of making her Eli 2.0
>>
>>8810767
To be fair, there aren't that many pure foreign children I've seen attending Japanese schools. Japan is not as multicultural as one would think.
>>
>>8810803
I'm aware but especially with her being blonde as well it just comes off as an Eli ripoff which is what I dislike.

Also anime isn't supposed to be realistic so why not have a character that isn't half-something for once
>>
>>8810767
I was joking about all the blonde happus in anime with a friend who works for Crunchyroll. He says they do that because crushing on full on foreign girls is becoming a small taboo because Japan's birth rate is getting so low. Don't know if that's true but I can see the reasoning even if it is silly.
>>
>>8810814
>I'm aware but especially with her being blonde as well it just comes off as an Eli ripoff which is what I dislike.
To be fair, nearly every foreigner in anime is blonde. I'm not sure if Japan's unaware that brown-haired white people are more common, or they're just throwing realism out the window because blonde hair is pretty~~
That's more of a criticism of anime as a whole, though, not just Love Live.
>>
>>8808283
I still see from left to right:
Nico - Eli - Hanayo - Rin - Nozomi - Maki - Kotori - Umi - Honoka
>>
I'm cosplaying Kotori (I'm usually just a weeb that admires cosplayers). It's for part of a love live group as a favor, and I'm pretty nervous. Anyone have any good poses I can do?
>>
>>8811196
Find character poses, especially from the card your outfit is from if you have one. Practice in front of a mirror. Kotori is very cutesy and makes a lot of heart-hands. Also practice making your eyes wide for pics.
>>
>>8811102
I think based on personality etc better would be
Hanayo - Eli - Umi - Nico - Rin - Maki - Nozomi - Kotori - Honoka. Maki and Dia are a bit of a stretch, but both are sort-of-oujousama and quite tsun tsun when it comes to idols.
>>
>>8811294
Thanks anon. Might be a challenge, my faves are usually super serious. Let me check the character card.

Does anyone know any cute, white Eli cosplayers? I only see white fatties or Asian girls.

Anyone have Hanayo wig suggestions? I'm afraid of it being too green, but then again I'm doing Snowy Mountain so it'll be covered most of the time.
>>
>>8810767
they were going to make her Italian but backpedaled and made her half-American "with her dad living in Italy"
That doesn't change the Eli 2.0 but damn, I really wanted to laugh at her saying stuff like "moruto bene!" or "compurimenti desu!!" while giving power-ups in the game
>>
>>8806372
I had trouble deciding because so many of them I had multiple favorites (i.e. Snowbird Kotori, Magical Girl Umi..)
Umi is just so traditional that I think Quipao fits her personality well
>>

Best UR girls.

Mainly Nozo/Koto/Pana, but Constellation Maki is definitely up there too.

The others are just if I had to choose a best UR card for them. It's so hard to find Honoka cards that I like, which is a shame because I really like her.

Oh my.

I like hanayo's skirt fabric, they should have used that on another girl. Overall, while these are tacky I kind of love them. I think they would make a really fun group.
>>
>>8814321
Yeah I'm kinda of annoyed that only Hanayo has the stripes, while only Rin and Umi have that floral fabric that is entirely out of place.
Should've done triangles on some skirts and stripes on the others.
>>
>>8814146
For whatever reason, I really like the socks they went with on this one, esp. Kotori's.
>>
>>8814146
I don't really like Umi's skirt fabric but I want to cosplay this set. Would it be a bad idea to do the triangles instead of the printed fabric?
>>
>>8814523
Just pick a different girl, you're going to look like you fucked up.
>>
>>8814146
I almost like Eli's except for that damn ruff.
>>
>>8814146
why's hanayo the only one with the stripy fabric? also, 4 of them have the same outfit, baring the color of the stockings and the inner skirt color.
>>
>>8814331
It's printed with tents and such, not flowers from what I can tell

I like Hanayos except for the bear hat, rabbit top hats were much cuter

You can barely tell, oh dear.
Still think it wasn't a wise design choice, especially since Hanayo sticks out.

I finally got started on the cyber outfit today. Just need to finish laying down the other half of the triangles and then spend hours fiddling with them until the spacing looks right.
I'm going to make this available on spoonflower once it's done, though since I decided on a gathered circle skirt design I'll probably have to upload several versions for different sizes.
>>
>>8814990
the one thing that still really bugs me though is the minute differences in each girl's seams. There's like 3 different versions and none are different enough to seem deliberately different; it's not even based on which kind of headphones they're wearing.
>>
>>8814146
I don't terribly like these outfits but the fact that me and my cosplay bff faves are the URs is tempting me.

What are your opinions on guys cosplaying the girls? I really love live but I don't want people thinking I'm some creep.
>>
>>8815579
If it's a genderbend I usually don't mind. I actually would think it's pretty neat if you could translate some of the outfits from the game into a male version. Crossplay on the other hand just seems like an attention grab
>>
>>8815539
Is that a challenge?
>>
>>8815693
It is
>>
>>8815579
Unlike >>8815680 , I think genderbends tend to look a bit lazy. I really think that guys cosplaying girls is okay, as long as they don't do it half-assedly (is that even a word?) like I've seen some do. If you have some experience with makeup you can really make it work~ Also it would depend on the outfit youre going for
>>
>>8815693
Give me a few hours, I think I can deliver
>>
>>8815696
I guess you're right about cross play looking nice if you try. I just see people not try with either form. Like a really well made costume is always going to be a good costume regardless if it's a genderbend or crossplay.

There's a guy in my area who crossplays Kotori. He's not perfect and you can kinda tell he's a guy, but he's trying and he's not creepy about it. No one really gives him shit for it.
If you can, get a female friend to help you.

I also think genderbends are pretty neat, but for some reason people bitch about those a lot in idol series'.
