has there ever been a good DD ocelot? all the ones I see are half assed and have shitty near party city-tier wigs
pic related, It's what I think of every time I see an Eli cosplay
PW Big Boss with an upgraded Tactical Knife.
Time for another one of these!
I'll start in a moment

5'6, 103 pounds. Female. Last time I did a measurement was when I was in Highschool but I have a smallish bust and bigger hips, and an ass that don't quit.

What's the next con that you have on your radar?
>made a last minute cosplay day before the con because first cosplay plans fell through
>worried about how I look as the character the whole ride over
>get greeted by a good amount of people,and asked for selfies/and pics with them
>didn't get any ribbons but did get a pokemon card from a girl and jelly beans from another Guzma cosplayer
My cosplay wasn't the best but still had a good time
It seams to me that the cons new owners have no idea how to run MegaCon.
Tampa was crap, and Orlando is lacking severely.
I am paying over 50+ dollars for tickets, to shop and meet guests.
No panels, and the con shuts down after 7pm.
It wont last another year.

The tag has been super barren as of late since fall cons aren't exactly as frequent. I had been expecting to see some more cute halloween cosplays pop up, but only a couple ever ended up on my dash...
I know request threads are frowned upon, but if you wouldn't mind, could you share some of your favorite coords or just coords you think look great in general? Doesn't have to be just lolita either.
I'll drop a few from my inspo folder
Doing a dump as well.
Not for everyone, but I appreciate the use of color in this one.
Can we have a print thread?
Post pics of prints.
>What are your dream prints?
>Are you working on any?
WCS Main body says fuck you to Butler and her ass buddies sucking off cons and making was look like shit.
Butler tries to blame her horrible management and horrible usage of funds on Japan.
>WCS wants attractive, impressive cosplayers
>American judges are fat ugly women who just vote for other fat ugly women
>"Uh... can we please go back to AX when they gave us good cosplayers? No? Oh, okay... we'll keep in touch..."
Conflict of interests. American WCS peeps need to get their shit together.
Last thread is dead.
In other news, AP is at it again.
I want to like it. But the print looks really huge on the skirt. I think they needed to cut it down to about half the size. Or do something to cut down on the height since the books don't look good practically touching the waistline.
First, Haenuli gained more attention from people outside the fashion with her artwork.
Now, WW is arguing with people on their FB.
When will it stop?
need to know what the material would be best for making a good fitting balaclava for a MSF Cosplay, would it be possible to breathe in something like this? Could i make this from scratch without having to "fix" a nylon balaclava that probably would look like shit?
also general material discussion thread
what is /cgl/'s favorite material to work with?
>possible to breathe in something like this
the vinyl looking stuff? it would not be fun. not fun at all. you'd probably want a panel made out of a breathable material where your nose is
Whatever type of synthetic they make sports and performance clothing out of. The rigidity seems to come from how it's sewn together, and maybe some pieces underneath it to give those hard edges.
any idea where i could get something like that? i could probably buy some cheap jogging shirts. Also would i have to sew it in two layers in order to get that proper full look? im fairly new to working with anything other than metal or fiberglass
This is my first cosplay ;D
Discuss things that grind your gears at cons and in cosplay in general.
Mine is friends who are too afraid to make their own decisions at cons so they keep following you around and don't come up with their own ideas.
Also shoes not at all matching with the character.
Those people who say they are canon/best cosplayer of said character or act as if they're better than everyone when in fact they don't put any effort into cosplay and look like shit all the freaking time
new larp thread
previous one is in autosage, etc etc.
This one will have 211,45% more... shit I don't know. We will figure it out on the fly
Making scale mail
should have patterned it out more, fuck
My advice to anyone wondering is, just go try it. Most games let you play for free for your first game
avoid investing heavily into costuming before the event, in case don't enjoy it.
ask to borrow a weapon, wear a simple outfit (like juSt a tunic and hose) then if you go back, then you can invest in nice clothes
realise that you have to make your own fun. There is always plot going on, involve yourself in it. make friends and make enemies. Both make the game more fun
I really appreciate when anime cons bring in actual anime companies from Japan. What is your opinion?
Does this include single people as well?
Sakuracon has the director of FMA Brotherhood, the director of Mushishi, and a character designer for Bubblegum Crisis this year. Pretty cool imo.
