Help me to convince myself anons
Love the photos already seeing from Mag Fest! I wish more photographers could be so awesome and quick in delivering their cosplay photos! Anna Fischer's already posting photos awhile the con's still going up, while other photogs still requires days to weeks before anything! Wish there were more professionals like her with such a quick turnaround!
What are photographers in your area have a quick turnaround? Would love to look up new people to work with, while I travel around the US to different cons this year?
if you're ever in northern california, kittencabada photography started posting pics of my starfire on their instagram day of, they work pretty fast. the photographer for cosplay of sacramento also works fast and offers a lot of different types of shoots besides cosplay too. that's all my experience here though.
>cosplay photographers should post photos immediately
>fuck those asshole photographers who try to charge for shoots
People in this community are so stupid. You get mad when a photographer doesn't post photos quickly enough and you get mad when they try to charge money for shoots. If you get a free shoot, you need to chill the fuck out and wait. If you want quick results, cough up some cash.
Anybody into kimono fashion? Do's and don'ts? Sources? I'm really inspired by all the New Years outfits in Japan right now.
Kimono is really easy to get wrong. People don't understand how many components go into an outfit and end up buying cheap polyester bathrobe 'kimonos'. I recommend reading through Immortal Geisha forums for those interested in order to avoid looking like an ita.
When I had a twitter account I used to follow a lot of Japanese people, and every time they busted out Yukata/Kimono it was always their Grandma's and passed down from generation to generation. Doesn't really seem like something that one can get into without a lot of money.
What is this?
Last thread hit bump limit.
I'm pretty frustrated with non-participating members in my comm's fb group, and I'm thinking about purging people who don't go to meets, let alone participate in group discussions, or have anything lolita related on their pages.
I can kind of understand not displaying lolita if they want to keep things separate, but it seems like most lurkers/inactive members are cosplayers which is a moot point in this case.
How have others here manage the problem of who goes and who stays?
I travel a lot so I'm in a lot of coms (hi I'm part of the problem) and pretty much all of them did a recent purge. I don't see an issue with a purge.
Most groups did a facebook event where you had to mark 'going' if you were active and attended a meet recently, or were planning to attend a meet soon
Old one in autosageso new make-up general thread
Some questions to get us started
>What makeup do you wear daily (if any)?
>(If you wear lolita or another jfash) What makeup do you wear when you get dressed up?
>Favorite color drugstore/cheap products?
>Favorite mid to high end products?
>Favorite Asian products (of any price bracket)?
>Makeup trends you like/dislike
Does anyone have any recs for a good foundation for cool toned skin? Makeup stores keep recommending ones that are very yellow and I can't seem to find any info about it on most brands' websites.
What are your feelings/opinions on foam wigs? What makes a good character wig? What makes a bad character wig?
IMO I think foam wigs can look cool when done properly and absolutely terrible when done by amateurs.
By "character wigs" I mean the hyper-stylized, hair sprayed into place wigs that have zero movement but are source accurate. I think they can look cool but sometimes come off helmet-like.
Are you a sweet lolita with an OTT gothic dream dress? Are you a classic lolita with a secret love for Sugary Carnival? A lolita with an all-black wardrobe plus one sax x white Alice coord? Post pics.
My biggest weakness is AP OTT-sweet era novelty bags, even though my wardrobe never goes sweeter than maturely-styled Innocent World. I secretly want to do a fairy kei coord with this one day.

I just don't know how i'll coordinate it and i'm affraid to look too childish in it but it's cute af
This is cute but I feel like it would be cuter as a skirt and just used for casual. Like other anon said, there are better strawberry prints out there. If you want one that's a little more mature, keep an eye out for some of IW's strawberry prints.

What are you working right now?
old one in sage and we still have shit to talk about edition
So, how important is accurately portraying height in cosplay?
Asking because I'm 5"7 and looking to cosplay a 6"2 character.
You can't control your height, so there's no point stressing over it.
If you're by yourself, no one will judge you over it.
If you're in a group, try to angle/pose shots so it's not obvious how not-tall you are.
it's not that big a deal really, and if you want to close that height gap a bit more, there are tons of cheap shoe inserts like pic related you can use to gain a couple extra inches
I don't know anon, 5'7" to 6'2? That's a tall order.
It would be a be a little bit of a reach.
You wouldn't want your cosplay to fall short, would you?
I mean I don't think most people would care but the look just wouldnt size up to your expectations
Really though, do what you want, just don't get your hopes too high.
>Ran on time
>Schedule laid out for fan gatherings
>Panels content has been dramatically improved and more content is offered outside of basic lecture stuff
>Pretty good party scene
Still boring to go to. This con checks off all the boxes for me yet I can't find myself enjoying it a lot as others
I've been going to Sac as an artist ever since they moved to the convention center, I feel the same way as well. I almost want to say that it's dampened by the city itself, stuff to do in the area is quite sparse, and it also feels like the crowd is a lot younger. The surrounding area feels like it's really empty with places to eat kind of scattered about as well as the main road kind of being dilapidated. Also the con center isn't very large and there is only one large hall in use for the dealer's/artists, so everything else is either crammed upstairs or offsite.
I had some issues with staff communication at the event.
It seemed like I could get four different answers to the same question and then, acting on what I'm told, still be wrong.
Also; why is Sac anime's swap meet called a swap meet when you can't just show up with stuff? It seemed like a lot of the staff was selling their stuff there and because you couldn't bring things with you to trade, there were more buyers then sellers by leaps and bounds.
So while scrolling through my facebook today I saw a convention director here in Arizona post something about a up coming convention called Outlaw Comicon. This thread blew up and it got me to actually research it. Now person who posted the thread didn't name drop anyone or the event and he was super respectful though out the whole thread. Someone who I'm guessing is the event organizer did name drop the convention.
After looking at this holy fuck this is gold.
