Location: Rosemont, Illinois Dates: December 16-18. Con-Alt-Delete is a little over 2 weeks away. Is anyone planning on going? Any cosplay plans or panels/events that you plan to attend?
It most likely will not be easy anymore. This years Anime Midwest had hired security everywhere to check badges. It is safe to assume that the security will be the same for this con.
I heard about that as well... I was wondering, what if you were at the hotel for non-convention reasons and you were stopped by security and then you get escorted out of the hotel for something you were not affiliated with? I honestly find the whole badge security to be ridiculous...
Can we get another thread for cosplayers with top tier craftsmanship? I'll dump a few I'm already following on fb to start out.

Reaction Image Thread.
It's been awhile since the last thread. Post the best and worst odottemita/dance cover and performance videos! Let's be weebs and dance together, /cgl/!
As a side note, I heard a rumor that the recent J-Pop Summit Odottemita Dance Contest was the last odottemita contest to be held by them? Can anyone confirm or give more info?
The only thing worth going to at the recent Halloween Expo, for the pay for part, the only thing that had an audience in the theatre was the Sigma Omega performance
So I'm interested on the whole nagomu gal thing, which is the fashion/cultural movement that lead up to the lolita movement, as far as I know.
but there is little to no information about this at all, at least in english.
Anybody can fill me up on this?
Pic related is the only picture of the fabled Nagomu gals I could find.
No idea, but I hope you find something! I'm always interested to hear more about lolita history, but it seems that there's a point at which you just hit a wall without sufficient Japanese. It's amazing that in a modern, globalised world we still can't manage to find someone with fluent English and Japanese who can go over and interview people who've been involved in the scene for a long time, or translate Japanese-language materials.
>Kendzi Otsuki's "Rocking Horse Ballerina" goes on sale.
>A slightly silly and lovable coming-of-age story about a punk band and a lolita girl traveling.
I'd never heard of this either, this was all I could find:
>he movie "PEEP "TV" SHOW" is well-received around the world.
>This movie about a gothloli girl, with a script collaborated upon by Karin Amamiya, is highly praised at international film festivals, leading to articles introducing the term "gothloli" in magazines and the New York Post. With this, the spelling "GOTHLOLI" changes to "GOSULOLI," as it is pronounced in Japanese, and gains worldwide recognition.
Anyone know more about this either?
Why is whether or not someone bought their own brand the end all be all of whether or not they're likable for a lot of lolitas? I get it if they're really spoiled and douchey about it, but why is it so problematic to so many people if their parents or SO gift it to them as long as they're humble about it and don't act like they're better than everyone? I've known many people IRL who are so quick to hate on girls in our comm when they're under the impression their clothes are presents, but do a complete 180 and start sucking their asshole the second they find out they bought it themselves. I see this a bit online too. Why is this? I really can't imagine it comes from anything but jealousy.
Pic kinda related- many were quick to shit on her when she first got attention because they thought her parents bought her whole wardrobe.
Well as long as the person being hated is not a total spoiled cunt, the only reason people hate on them is because they're jealous. Everybody wants stuff without having to work for it.
This thread is for anonymous valentines, written from your kokoro to whoever is being a dodo. Don't use real names, keep it on-topic to people in your /cgl/-related community, and have fun imagining some of these are about you.
Dear Ironically Flirtatious Boystylers,
Fuck kabedon. Your silly shoujo manga bad-boy impersonations are cute, but unconvincing. You're as dangerous as a newborn puppy and, to be honest, just as sweetly sexless--more neuter than androgyne.
Leave the seduction games for the grown-ups. Just be your cute, naturally charming and awkward selves.
Your lolita admirer
Not Santa's Helper, just thought we could use a new thread.
Gifts are arriving, holiday cheer is in the air!
Chat with your giftees/secret santas!
>Grinched gift signup and check will be on January 15th, 2017, unless you guys decide otherwise.
>mfw all my giftees have received their gifts already and I'm waiting for any updates on mine
I think I've only heard from one Santa so far and it's nerve wracking wondering if anything is going to arrive.
This is the new LARP thread as the previous one -is dying the death of many posts.
I want to start collating information for new people and to reference so if you've got links to games, equipment suppliers, reference stuff or anything to do with LARP post it here and I'll come up with a LARP general info post.
General question to get things started - how much do people expect to spend to attend a LARP?
Collecting a link list for games in a place like this with people from literally all over the world is probably not going to be useful for anyone. Maybe for fest larps it could work.
Spending depends on what's expected of the event. I wouldn't pay £50 for a 4hour weekly event but for something over the weekend where there's going to be a huge setup, great costumes, lots of things going on etc then £65 is great.
For smaller events that run for a few hours then up to £15.
I think that it will be able to at least show the active games. Plus with an international audience it'll enable people that are traveling to a new country to be able to see if there are games active in the country they are traveling to.
What would you expect for your $15?
he said pounds not dollars, mind you.
Also weekly events. I will never undersatnd why would anyone make weekly larp events. Chamberlarps I can understand but those are different, battle games also, but generic larp? it will be washed down and lose everything that could make it interesting

Coord help thread: >>9254002
I feel so dumb asking this but ive never been able to figure it out. How do you tuck headress ribbons behind your head? You know, like bonnets with ribbons to tie underneth your chin. Usally i would just hide them underneath a wigcap, but ive seen girls do this with their natural hair and im wondering if they just pin it back, which makes it really likely to fall off or if they do something else
If the headdress doesn't already come with one, a haircomb in the middle of the underside, plus two criss-cross hairpins on each side of the headdress to hold the ribbon to your hair, works pretty well to hold down the entire headdress. You can just see the silver haircomb in the middle of the soft bonnet here. The ribbons are pretty much decorative once all the pins are in, and you can tie them to the back of your head if you prefer.
I've gotten to the point where I sew in alligator hairclips on the ends of headdresses (the underside), then either cut the ribbons off, or fold them back onto the underside and tack them down out of the way.
Tuck them behind your ears then tie them at the base of your neck. I use hairpins to hold the ribbons in place.

Stop speaking for the board. That was never agreed upon
Then let's get to talking, that's what this thread is for, son.
Didn't see one in the catalog.
Ledamonsterbunny had a cosplay phase once, and thought this was okay.
Yeah, I think it looks gross and doesn't translate anime to real life at all.
Hi, I'm Paul, I'm a telecom ParisTech student (Paris, France). This is a study about cosplay for my school projects for English104 and for PACE.
It's a short survey to study cosplay around the world. It should take you less than 10 minutes.
The results will help show the common points and differences of how cosplay is practiced and viewed around the world. And they will be presented to my class in January and in a printed document.
If you have some comments to help me to improve this questionnaire, say it on the "comments" section at this end of it.
Thank you for your participation.
IT IS 100% ANONYMOUS!
I need as many replies as possible to make it relevant.

Thank you again if you reply.
How do I go about distressing a pair of pants "diagonally", like in the top left of this image? I've looked at several distressing tutorials, but they only show how to make a boxy, squarish pattern using a scalpel to make vertical incisions, that isn't quite what I'm looking for.
Attempting a cosplay of this guy.
I tried /fa/ the other week but the thread pretty much just got shitposted to oblivion.
