New thread as last one is in auto sage
How have meets been recently for you guys?
Any good comm drama?
Plans for New Years?
I haven't gone to any in awhile but I plan on going to some in January.
Does anyone have tips for organising themed meets in a small comm without looking like you're being selfish and just want a theme revolving around your stuff? I don't want to seem like I'm excluding anyone but there's also no point theming meets if nobody follows the theme.
Christmas meet next week. There's a gift exchange. I was working on some new stuff for my etsy that I know a gothic lolita would appreciate, and was so happy when I got assigned the gothiest goth in the comm. Sadly, the host forgot to add herself and scrambled it. My new giftee kind of wears anything and everything and I'm not sure what to make them.

Oh I fucked up the thread title. Oops.

Let's talk about photoshopping/photo manipulation. It doesn't have to just be about body/face shooping, let's talk about editing lighting and bringing out the scenery too.

Haven't been to /cgl/ in a while because of when it had started to go to shit. I checked shit out a year ago and it was Facebook-tier bad, but my friend linked me to something here and I realized that it seems to not be so cancerous anymore. I'm fucking glad, the exodus didn't truly happen here and /co/ and /v/ don't fill a certain niche for me. And I missed having a female-centric board to have fun on.
Enough with my blogpost. I know that it's the anime/manga that typically looks fucking terrible when cosplayed, but when it goes right, it goes damn right. So let's have a DB/DBZ thread. Other Toriyama shit is good, too.
**Though I do wish I could post five images at a time like on 8ch. Goddamn, this is annoying.**
Haven't seen one in a while.
Post your before and after photoshop images.
I started taking my own photos at home, still learning how to get the best results and edit, etc
Do lolitas host tea parties? If so, only other lolitas are invited?
I'd host tea parties all the time if I had anyone around to invite. I wouldn't necessarily say only Lolitas (other fancy looking J-fash would be fine too, or hell, even good historical stuff), but I'd be pretty selective about the guest list.
Has anyone here bought from Dolls Kill before? They have some pretty cute jfash stuff.

>boyfriend's birthday is coming up, already bought him something fancy, have some extra spending money left over
>See my dream dress listed on lacemarket
>its in a FULL SET, and only $250 for the whole thing, when other listers are selling the dress alone (in undesired colorways) for $300+
>Boyfriend tells me for his birthday he really wants to treat his poorfag brother and his family to a nice expensive meal, and have his friends come along too
>Bf's had a tough time, friend killed himself on his birthday last year, a few of his family members died too so I know how much this will mean to him
>Don't buy the dress, tell boyfriend he can invite his family and the money can go to that instead
>His friends don't hang out with him on his birthday, cancel birthday plans with him to go have a "celebration of life" vacation together to mourn their friend who has passed
>His Brother tells him "don't really feel like going, I worked today and i'm tired" last minute
>its just me and him at this restaurant and I try to make it the best birthday I can.
>afterwards he looked at me sadly and tells me "I'm sorry you couldn't get that dress. Seems like we didn't need the extra money after all"
what the fuck on his friends for valuing the dead more than the living
what the fuck on his brother for being "too tired" to be treated to a fancy ass meal
the fuck kind of friend offs themselves on their friend's birthday, my bf can barely enjoy his birthday anymore
I don't even want the dress anymore, I just want my boyfriend to be happy
Old one is dead. Please someone tell them edition.
Holy shit, that has to be one of the most unfortunate cosplayers I've ever seen. Up there with Peacockfeather. I genuinely feel bad for them, even if they lost weight and got their teeth fixed I'm sure they'd still look like Quasimodo.
Post what you got
Post j-fash or cosplay tumblr, instagram, youtube, etc. Self posting is fine.
I'll start with some tumblr blogs I follow:
