With Abunai coming up it's once again time to have a little meet. This year I will actually be there myself so things should go smoothly. If you're interested in meeting up please fill in this Strawpoll so I can decide what day and time works best: http://www.strawpoll.me/13706967
Once I've had enough replies I'll post the full plan here in the thread later on.

I also more have an issue with this, rather than nudity. But even people with full costumes can look rather out of place. Take those biker Sailor Moon cosplayers for example, that have this "imma bad bitch" attitude, even though the real senshi are a lot more gentle and feminine (even the tomboy ones).

I guess that's the most important thing. If your cosplay isn't canon, at least try to do something that suits the canon character. With lingerie and bikini cosplay I've seen both a lot of hits and misses with this.

At the risk of sounded gatekeep-y, I get the feeling a lot of the people who do this don't really know or care about the characters they're cosplaying. They pick a character because of their design or because they're popular and don't bother with that character's backstory or personality. You often see people like this posing very OOC too, because what matters to them is looking good in their cosplay and they don't care about portraying the character accurately. If someone wants to get in on that Sailor Moon fandom but knows that the regular senshi outfits have been done hundreds of times, they'll go for a "sexy" or "badass" version to stand out from the crowd, not because they think that's what the character would actually wear. It probably doesn't even occur to them to take that into consideration because the character itself is not a priority, standing out is.

I'm just attending for one day. Anime Fest really doesn't have enough programming for me to warrant going the whole weekend, plus it's only $50 for a Friday only pass so that's not bad at all. Cheaper than a concert, that's for sure.

I'm going Friday/Saturday. I'm down to hangout.

I may go all day Thursday and the morning/afternoon of Friday with some friends from work. It's a 1.5 hour drive from my place and I have work that weekend so no room for me. I didn't take off work, so I decided to just leave it up to fate as to whether I attend or not. No cosplays planned, but I kind of want to dress up as a generic seifuku-wearing schoolgirl. I just get a feeling I might be creepy as I'm a 23 year old (at least I have a baby face?).

Military Gear Cosplay General /mgc/
>Here we go again/The Lord Edition

This thread is to talk about cosplays involving Gear, to help each other with identification and to improve on ourselves. Please keep strictly military topics to /k/ or strictly airsoft topics to /asp/.

Metal Gear, STALKER, Resident Evil Fan? Or something completely different? Feel free to check out this thread.

Feel free to submit new shops, to improve the experience. I will then update the pastebin.

Pic related is me, first time fitting some of the stuff for Tachanka. Clearly not done, but I like the way this is going. Now waiting for the next Greyshop order to arrive.

Thanks man, but I hope you'll enjoy the results much more!

To be a bit of a samefag:
>Do you work on any gear related cosplays at the moment?
Still Tachanka, waiting for a package from the Motherland. Also thinking about Fuze, but it's a thing for the future.
>Should this become a regular thread?
I very much do hope so. /k/ isn't exactly the right place for it, /asp/ is cancer.
>Have you enjoyed the last thread? Anything I can do to improve it?
Well, get people in here faggot
>Are you going to attend Gamescom? If so, with what cosplay?
Tuesday: Nick Rye from Far Cry 5
Wednesday: Not sure yet, at the moment.
Thursday: Venom Snake
Friday-Saturday: Tachanka
I'm a bit of a sucker for Ubi currently.
>also: Have you ever improved your Cosplay over time?
My Snake really has come quite a way, people would probably not notice, but I'm happier with it now. I'll receive a bunch of Russian VSS Pouches soon, as they resemble the ones from ingame closer than the actual M56 US Pouches.

So i'm considering of moving up towards the north (Rhode island) And I was wondering how the con scene is up there? I may consider of going to cons like Otakon,NYCC and Maybe Pax East. but those are all the major cons. How's the smaller con scene look like I? I'm from florida and I know that florida somewhat has a shoddy reputation for being nothing but drama. so i'm just curious to how it's like up there?

If you're into anime cons and are willing to travel a couple hours, the scene is pretty great. All the states are pretty small and every state has at least one so there's a ton of variety. I lived there for around five years, briefly moved away, and was kind of slapped in the face with how few cons there were in my new area. Really happy to be back in the northeast. Off the top of my head there's Katsucon, Connecticon, Another Anime Con, Anime Boston, Colossalcon East, Portcon, a lot of tiny university cons, and all the ones you mentioned that are pretty accessible coming from New England. OG Colossalcon and the cons in Toronto and Quebec also attract a lot of northeasters if you're willing to go farther.

>>9608251
Good stuff my man. Ill keep those in mind.

>>9608164
Welcome to the motherfucking pit
But honestly yeah what >>9608251 said. You're going to see cons that have a little of everything up here, save for comic-cons/PAX for obvious reasons.
Welcome again

When handsewing, is there a technique to keeping your stitch length consistent enough for topstitching other than, say, marking every eighth of an inch along a line?
7 posts and 2 images submitted.
>>
>>9608057
Sew it with a machine using clear thread or thread that matches the fabric, then do your hand topstitching over it using the machine stitches as guides for length. Otherwise it takes just lots of practice to get consistent at hand sewing.
>>
>>9608065
Ooh, I'd never thought of that. Thanks anon!

Mark the length on your finger with sharpie for a quick reference

Last one is in autosage.

I'm going to be making a trip over there in July myself as was wondering if there are any good nail salons that gulls could recommend as well as any nice day spas. Price doesn't matter.

For anyone in the GTA looking to travel to Japan and HK, there's currently a deal for about $621 CAD roundtrip for September and October

http://yyzdeals.com/toronto-to-hong-kong-499-cad-roundtrip-including-taxes-add-japan-for-122
>>
>>9606740
Go to tru nail, there are various salons around Tokyo. You can pretty much bring them any picture of a design you want and they'll do it for you - however they are really popular so you'll have to book your appointment either before you leave or right at the beginning of your trip.

>general tips?
- If you plan on making two or more trips by shinkansen, get the JR pass for a week and plan your long distance trips then (it pays itself off just going from tokyo to osaka return, also many lines within osaka and kyoto are JR lines)
- Try to find accomodation near a station on the JR yamanote line, makes life easy getting to all the hot spots such as ikebukuro, shinjuku, shibuya, harajuku and akiba are all on this line.
- Be anal about planning and research, honestly its a really big disappointment when you wanted to do something and then found out you didn't have enough time/got the opening wrong hours/cant get there. Map out your exact routes and where everything is for where you are going *before* you're there, even if you have wifi. Makes things go much much smoother.
- July is summer sale season. If you can plan your trip to be there in the last weekend of July for the la foret grand bazaar sale! It's absolute mayhem but there are so many good deals, and often brands will release lolita special sets in this time.

>where was your favorite spot to visit?
Disneyland and Disneysea were definitely the best, but some other highlights: deer park in Nara, dotonbori river in Osaka, La foret Harajuku, yokohama

>are the girls at the shops in shibuya109 really that big of bitches to baka gaijin?
They were quite cold compared to what I had become accustomed to in Japan, but that could be to do with the fact that I wasn't dressed up or looking particularly nice (too hot to bother) plus it was during the summer sales - they're very busy and probably deal with a lot of shit. Only remember one experience with a shop girl being more than unenthusiastic to serve me.

Someone was talking about being vegan in the last thread, apparently Gaijinpot released a manual on that and it's pretty cheap, might be worth it.

Ask elsewhere, this thread is just going to attract bait and trolls. With all these types of threads, most of the people that genuinely don't care won't even open the thread, so it devolves into arguing between two extremes.
>>
>>9605948
I personally don't have an issue. The only thing that gets me is when people wear things that obviously are too small for them, just because no matter what your size it ends up looking horrible.

/cgl/; Trying a new, and somewhat ambitious project. Wanting to do a Gundam cosplay, doing pic related.

I've done armor cosplays in the past using papercraft as the base, but never this extensive. Thought of trying Pepakura, but can't find a 3d model of the Hyaku Shiki to scan into it.

Any suggestions on where to start?

>>9604998
If you can find a model, take those pieces, scale them up to draw onto foam pieces and play around with that for a base
>>
>>9605008
I've got the model actually. So I should use foamcore to create a base form to work off of then?

By the way, I intend to eventually utilize fiberglass and resin to form the pieces

Check out 'Clive Lee's Gundam/Mecha tutorial' It's a step-by-step process. You don't necessarly have to follow it, but it does give sweet results.

I'm currently starting on Nethergundam and did Nobell Gundam in the past.
