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.
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.
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?
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
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.
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/.
the hell it everyone's just trying to defend that stupid nozomi cosplayer from 1 comment.
>dur dur prolly not neckbreads just fatties or uggos
that's not better, the thread's been getting baited since she posted.
How hard do you think people are gunning for the Nico Nii Angel event card? Trying to decide if it's worth trying to grind for despite my laughably weak smile team...
Keeping this cosplay related though, here's a Lucky Gods Nico I did recently
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.
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.
Can we get some normal girl cosplays going in here? I feel like they're never posted :(
Oh my gosh i want to cosplay Koyuki, Ryo, and Rebecca so bad
Would love to see the valentines Jessica and Reine. Valentine's v1 is my favorite set.
>says 'pic related' and drops pic
good going, self
She's my best N girl but she has the absolute ugliest cards...
Can we please talk about my ballerina princess and her extremely hinted at girlfriend Ryo?
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.
Did a quick collage for you, hope you don't mind.
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.
Asking again if anyone got the marine outfit from taobao and can do a review and link to it? There is a bunch but the local reviews seems to be a little mixed
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.
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.
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.
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.
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).
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.
just ordered this outfit off Taobao along with the animal hoodie for casual wear (though its summer here so I wont get to wear it any time soon...)
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.
I just noticed you can see Rin's shoes. Looks like basic black flats.
Currently waiting on this to arrive! I'm super excited, sad that it doesn't come with headphones though..
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?
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 think it's fine but you're right, it's way better when they add something unique to it. I've wanted to do genderbend LL cosplay for a while and do male covers. But I always convince myself not to
I got Lucaille's Honoka wig since it was a different shade of orange than the Rin in my group. Basically have photos of it in different lighting, left is in the sun, top right is indoors w/ flash and bottom right is indoors w/out flash.
Looks orange to me in the sun pick anon. Are you blind? Looked up some photos of the wig the other anon got and it's pretty obvious it's orange.
I don't dislike it, I think it's cute in it's own way, but it's just not a set fit for January.
I would have expected something more winter themed or even just traditional clothing again.
EN or JP? Theres a page with all the boxes and predictions of future JP boxes.
Here, found it
I'm waiting for the box with halloween/constelations in EN
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.
I believe she's cosplaying (a really bad version of) this outift
Does anyone have any experience with l-email's honoka wig? I'm pretty darn pale with pink undertones so I'm not worried if it's a bright-ish orange, but it's always hard to tell just from the seller photos.
I haven't ordered from l-email specifically, but I did order a Honoka wig with the exact same picture on ebay, and I really do like it. It's more orange than the Lucaille one, I can take photos of it if you'd like
First picture is most accurate to the color in real life
Bless you anon, that looks great! Much less intensely orange than I feared. What ebay seller did you get it from? (Since I've just realised directly buying from l-email will probably be more expensive thanks to shipping)
Hello everybody! Laser cutter anon here. I've finally set up my custom lace commission page and I'm now accepting orders. If you're interested in some custom lace or trim for your next LL cosplay, check out my FB page at "Laser Guided Commissions"
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.
Can second this, I have a costume from Uwowo and it was really nice
Where are good eli's getting their wigs from? I've bought like 3 and theyre all either thin or yellow or too much hair in the front
i just want something that looks a little natural and doesnt look poofy and weird or thin and crappy
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.
> 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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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
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.
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
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
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.
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.
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.
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.
I'm buying the outfit, but going to make the headphones. It'll be a fun challenge
also, monkey Nozomi is supercute!
Thank you for the advice and recommendation, I really appreciate it. I'm going to definitely look into these and other supplies. If they out weigh the cost of the pre-made headphones, I'll stop.
Good luck! If I do end up making them, I'll be sure to follow up if it turns out well. I really like the idea of glitter. I think you may be interested in these: http://www.ebay.com/itm/100-Flatback-Acrylic-Rhinestone-Teardrop-Sew-on-bead-18mm-Pick-Your-Color-/370933158816?var=&hash=item565d56d3a0:m:mpP8_6_2nzEl-BPAkdjI4dw
A friend invited me to be her cosplay partner.
She wants the Wonderful Rush outfit
I prefer The Meido outfit
TFW I have to lose some waistline and I'm a guy
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.
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.
I've searched and I know they exist, but I can't find a full set of the idolized Valentine's day series on Taobao anywhere.
Anyone knows of a store that carries Love Live swimwear cosplays? I think some of them are really cute and would love on for summer, so it should be actual swimwear
I'm an absolute sucker for desins like these but I don't recognize them from the anime or game?
I'm working some right now and if you're looking for a cheap base I found some on ebay, they were really easy to take the innards out, and I'm using battery EL wire with the driver placed in the headphones. EVA foam for the ears, and gems for the flower. Good luck with whatever option you go with anon!
using these as base cause i owned them already and they broke
do any anons have experience with spoon flower? is it worth it? going to start working on pic related and I'd like to get the plaids close so I'm debating using it.
For something like that just get this and dye it yellow. Search using buffalo or gingham check if the size isn't quite right
I'd hold on on spoonflower until you have to use some really crazy pattern like the fruits parlor uniforms
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.
I'm not too sure about Taobao but I've seen a lot on eBay. Just be careful since a lot of them look like really shitty quality and are priced at $70+. I did find pic related for about $30; I think I'm gonna give it a shot.
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.
Which Cards/Outfit is your favorite for all the girls? I know everyone has their favporite girl and they have lots o pretty card, but every girl have THAT card you just really like and you would even consider cosplay your least favorite girl just for that outfit.
Can be fun to see what cards are the most popular!
Seven Lucky Gods Honoka
Christmas Special Kotori
Halloween Devil Maki
Rain Shower Eli
White Day Nozomi
That Kotori you posted is one of mine. The outfit is fucking adorable, the though of buying the figurine of it has crossed my mind, the cosplays I've seen look so damn cute... but I hate Kotori, she's right at the bottom of my chart.
Thanks Anon! I'm going to put these in my cart right now. I have a question though, how were you planning to do the colorful earphone part of the headphones? Were you planning on covering it up with _____ and painting it over or some other method?
May be cosplaying Magician Maki, she's my best girl and that's my favorite card of all time. I figured either that or her Marine card.
Kind of hilarious how all my favorites are all cutesy and girly... and then there's Eli
I'm going to be making Las Vegas Nozomi soon, does anyone have advice for the top? I'm wondering what fabrics to use and what sort of thing to search for in terms of patterns or tutorials.Like I want to call it a vest but it's not a vest so idk. the rest of it doesn't seem too difficult though.
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)
desu the card I really cannot get over is Hanayo orange, but I went with a different one
I have this wig for Nozomi? But I think this one is TOO grey for her? opinions?
I always thought that Maki was absolutely stunning and seeing it on cgl got me interested in the series. I was really surprised to find out she wasn't the main girl.
Also the casual outfits from some chapters in the game are pretty cute. Kind of obnoxious how much stuff in this game is branded with"school idol festival" though.
I love Eli and Umi's outfits from this story.
That rose Maki is really cute when idolized but her unidolized card reminds me of a fedora-wearing neckbeard.
Her card could be called "(tips fedora) M'aki"
I think the color is great on that wig. Nozomi's hair tends to look more like that color than the often used bright purple. Also from what I can tell Nozomi was a good choice, just saying
Speaking of, I heard there's gonna be a dub of season 1 and 2 of the anime. I don't know how I feel about this. I don't think I'd like it if they redo the songs.
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 want to make one simple Love Live cosplay but I can't decide which one, I have narrowed it down to these four now, which one do you like the most?
Love Live! Sunshine!! anime in summer 2016! Get ready to cosplay.
So it's official, Aqours is going to be added to the main game!
What do you guys think? Personally I'm just sad since this really marks the end of an era.
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
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...
"- Aqours 2nd single on sale 4/27!
- Aqours regular nico nama starting 1/22!
- Aqours added to SIF! "
And the anime is in summer. Rip Muse
It was hard, but not as hard as thought.
My all time favourite girl is Eli but Maki have a prettiest outfits
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.
>tfw definite cool bias
Has anyone actually cosplayed this Maki? It's such a pretty outfit but I never see it on taobao.
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?
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 iM@S girls and CG, along with ML, but Aqours just feels... like they made them up all in one night or something? I dunno.
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.
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
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.
>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.
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.
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.
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.
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
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
The only person I know who did those covers is a flaming cunt
My best girl is Nico but I'm in love with Rin's outfit in the pic, if I do a LL cosplay i think i'd do that one. I doubt it has a taobao version though.
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.
This photo's not great, but I enjoy Terumi Hana's Eli.
URs was harder since most of my favorite Nozomi and Eli outfits were SRs
What the actual fuck why does 4chan hate legitimately attractive women so much? I made the mistake of going to /tv/ board the other day to see what they thought of the force awakens and it was just a lot of people talking about how Rey looks like some ugly man face Jew.
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.
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.
Looks like Lollipops, Umbrellas and something I don't know maybe snowflakes but not flowers to me
Girl on my Instagram is going for the Cherry outfit, it seems.
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.
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.
If I see an Eli cosplayer wear this and pose like that, I'll die
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
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
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'.
