>In a sort of large comm
>Only other guy is never around
>Girls know that I'm super shy
>They try to make me feel embarrassed a lot
>Don't want to seem like a complete bitch so I try to follow along but just get even more embarrassed
What do I do? It's the only comm around here and I don't wanna seem like I'm a total spaghettiboi....Is it so hard to let a guy have fun with the fashion and leave it at that?
>never cosplayed before
>wanna do pic related as my one and only cosplay
How much would it cost to make a decent one? How fucked am I?
How do I get a successful cosplay patreon?
Not doing nudes.
I actually like the newer AP releases. I don't have much interest in chasing the older stuff anymore like when I first got into lolita.
Post your winter wardrobe inspiration. Bonus points for pants or long skirts.
Let's keep it cozy.
sorry this one is so tiny
Is full bodypaint cosplay a thing? Is it allowable in conventions? Thinly painting over nipples counts as clothed technically right?
Yes, but no. There's no way you'd be able to do this anywhere other than an 18+ con, which are very few and far between.
Alternatively, the technical dick route would be to go to a con in a city that allows for public nudity and just not enter the actual con itself and take pictures outside.
Do you feel that photographers should restrain themselves in public shoots or is it the cosplayer who's over exaggerating things?
Favorite Etsy stores?
Are you into j-fash?
are you possibly the only person in your asscrack of a country who is into j-fash?
welcome to the second/third world j-fash thread!
So in June 2017 I will be flying over to Ohio from the UK for colossalcon. It's my first time so feel free to leave tips and advice for going abroad for cons as well as any stories of your own!
Old one is kill. >>9273428
Post feels. Happy, sad, whatever. Just KEEP IT CGL RELATED.
We found a new home for my obese grandmother! That means I can go to the con in a few weeks.
I'm busting out my Miku Append cosplay, and I couldn't be more stoked.
You're going to wear this?
I'm planning out my cons for next year...list any conventions in the USA that you think are worth traveling to if you're into lolita and/or j-fashion! I'm specifically trying to find ones that have actual Lolita fashion shows
Definately Rufflecon. I find any major convention is going to have Lolitas. Anime conventions tend to have a fairly large amount. While these aren't conventions technically, Japanese festivals like Sakura Matsuri also have a high lolita attendance.

Expocomic? More like EMPTYCOMIC
NorCal Cosplay Gathering just finished and it had a good turnout and plenty of pictures being taken.
What's /cgl's/ opinions on these things?
Great excuses to get together and see everyone in the times without a con. Super cheap - $5, parking, and whatever gas it takes you to get there. The best one is the spring one at the Japanese garden in San Jose so if you're going to go to only one it should be that one.
if you keep going you just become friends with people. I'm not even a social person and it's come to the point where people recognize me on sight.
