Since this is a month away from us, i decided to make a thread for it.
Its a new con in the southern California area, and also has had it's controversies with the guy running this con who also ran Touhoucon last year and didn't pay hotels or something.
Also it's like a week before Anime Los Angeles. Which would be the better one to go to?
Anyone planing to go?

ALA is the more established and popular con. This is Impulse's 2nd year I believe. Being so close to ALA is probably going to hurt their numbers a bit.

I have a table in the AA at Impulse. So I guess I'll see any seagulls if they go.
If I didn't have friends going to ALA, I actually would've chosen Impulse. The fact that Ely's going to be there is a huge game breaker.

>Also has had it's controversies with the guy running this con who also ran Touhoucon last year and didn't pay hotels or something.

I wouldn't hold it against him. If anything, it's the hotel's fault for screwing up that group block and Touhoucon's administration had no way of forcing the hotel to refund the guest's it had overcharged. I'm not really quite sure what went wrong with the agreement between the person behind Touhoucon and the hotel, but being a person who's in the hotel business myself, the hotel has the final say for matters like those.
I have friends going to ALA too. Luckily for me I live in Ontario so I can just drive to both cons and not have to worry about coughing up the money for a hotel.

I know this is kind f a weird question, but a few friends asked me and I wondered what other's reactions would be.

Why do you come on /cgl/? How long? If you've been here a really long time, how come? When did you start?

Because I wanted to be an edgy bitch to be honest. I've been on here a few years now and got over the edgelord thing pretty quick. Now I just stick around for news about releases or whatever and the occasional shit talking.
Why did you think /cgl/ would help you become an edgy bitch?
When I first started lolita everyone would always talk about how mean and scary seagulls are. So I want to come join in being a bitch. But I realized it's really not that bad and I chilled out.

What draws you to certain lolitas over others when it comes to who you follow? For me...

>size of wardrobe
>how pretty their space is
>obviously coordination skills, but that goes without saying
>being genuine and not going over the top with the kawaii shit
>being real and not trying to force a sugary sweet persona

Must have good looking face, Idc about body shape. Style is usually similar to mine or one that I'm interested in. Good photo quality. Minimal or understated shoop. Posts new content often enough for me to want to continue to follow. No "boo-hoo" posts about being fat/depressed/autistic/ednos or whatever flavor of the month is for mental health.
I really only follow people who can dress themselves cohesively and get creative with their coords. Not always OTT but something out of the ordinary. Uncommon color combos also attract me.
Unique coords, more down to earth and not stuck up (ex. Lor over Kate), creates her own stuff like accessories or something rather than just consuming the fashion.

I couldn't care less if they have a giant wardrobe, and it's actually kind of a turn off if they get like every single release asap. I guess I just want to follow someone cool and relatable.

On that note, which lolitas are like that and worth following?

Hello gulls,

I've been in a slump with my Lolita accessories sales as of late and I need help/advice. What kind of accessories do YOU want to purchase/see more of online and at conventions. What do Lolita/kawaii accessory shops lack of that you wish they had? I wish to no share my shop here but any help is appreciated.

So basically you want people to give you ideas so you can make money off them?
I'm loving those cute resin hearts that I see sellers post with kawaii stickers. They make good accessories. Of course, if you're willing to go through the messy process of dealing with resin.
You want us to do your work for you without even telling us who we work for..?

I've always wanted to sew clothes not just for cosplaying but for fixing rips, tears, and maybe even modifying or making clothes.

Except I don't know anything about sewing, not even the most basic stuff.

What's some advice for a newcomer? How did you guys start off?
30 posts and 3 images submitted.
You should look into classes at your local Joanns! They always have beginner sewing classes that will teach you the basics.
go to youtube and type in how to sew
Start by getting an in-person lesson on the basics and from there try simple projects on youtube like how to make pajama pants, zipper puches, tote bags, skirts etc. Learn about making mockups and practice making things with cheap fabric or even bedsheets from thriftstores so you don't waste money on nice material that might/will get fucked up by your early attempts.

I kinda like the bustier top as some sort of cute burlesque piece.

Step right up and test your google-fu against other gulls! Show us the worst of the worst! See if you've seen the bottom of the barrel or only just scraped the surface! Have you seen the worst lace monster?

Oh god she's on amino now posting her sob story about people making fun of her. Because obviously we didn't like her for her size. Lying out your ass about being a model for brand totally isn't what made people make fun of you.

At least she lost some weight, but she still doesn't fit the brand like it's designed to fit someone.

Also how about a Strawpoll for DCC and Castlefest next weekend? It's been way too long since we last had a meet...

Any (foreign) con recommendations? I'm looking for something before animecon and after abunai to fill up my agenda with non shitty cons.

I would actually be down for a /cgl/ sings but not especially this one
which song would you be up to then?

How about this?

How old is too old to cosplay?

I'll be 29 in February, and i've noticed i'm at least 10 years older than anyone else in the meet-ups. Stuff like that gets to your confidence.
134 posts and 20 images submitted.
I know that feel. A bit, I've been feeling that way since I was 21. Am 26 now, and doesn't feel it as much anymore.

It does feel like you are too old, but a lot of people don't care. I know many cosplayers your age that are friends with people under 20. It may be yourself that's the biggest block, most people willl accept you.
17 is pushing it, so at 29 why are you still into cosplay? Why don't you have a spouse and family to focus on now? You should really focus on your career and start a family.
Why do you assume because someone still has time for their hobby they don't have a spouse, or career, or home or family?

Jesus, life does not stop when you turn 30. I can afford supplies I could only dream about when I was in my 20s because, WOW, now that I've been working in a specialized field for nearly a decade I make enough to have disposable income. I can afford to travel to cons out of state. I can afford to book rooms for just me and my spouse, eat at good restaurants instead of cup noodles...cons only got better as I got older.

If you aren't having fun cosplaying anymore then stop. If you still enjoy it keep doing it. It's a hobby, it doesn't have an age restriction.
