Anime Expo now charges tickets to see their masquerade. Why charge extra for an already dying event?

I was at AX that year. That Kamen Rider group was the best. So glad they won BiS.

last time we started talking about cosplay progress , let's not fuck this thread up right away.

that being said, It's almost december and I can't decide to wear my only christmas cosplay or something else
>>
By the way, I'll be out of the country from Thursday night until Monday night. If this thread manages to reach the post limit before then (or flat out dies) I would really appreciate it if someone else started a new thread. Just copypase the con agenda and use any image you like although you'll receive mad kudos for using one with Tully.

I also did a minor overhaul of the con agenda. Each event now includes a short summary, address and a link to its website and/or Facebook event. If I'm missing any events you can always post it here so I can add it.

We have these threads every once in a while, and they're good for a quick laugh, and since everyone is spending time with family for the holidays, now is a great time
I'll start:
Last three girls I dated (in order):
>didn't care
>didn't care
>dressed up with me but didn't know anything about lolita
mom
>"when will you grow out of this, anon?"
dad
>sends me articles about cosplay competitions (i don't correct him)
sisters
>one doesn't care, other said something about "kawaii"
>grandfather who barely speaks english
>"doll dresses"
And for stories
>little girl once asked me how i made my skirt "so fat"
>another asked to feel the feathers on my bonnet

My mother keeps commenting on how all the girl cosplayers I take pictures with are cute.
>>
> Friends of friends
> Relatives
> Strangers
> "Wow, you could make money off of this! Have you ever thought about selling this stuff/teaching people how to make this stuff/becoming a costume designer for movies?!"

Flattering and encouraging, but they don't understand that it's not that easy and my craftsmanship is not yet top tier.

>On the train in lolita

Kids are so cute.

SH of NSW, would you wear non-lolita clothes like a t-shirt or sweater? It probably isn't cold enough there at any point of the year for mittens, a scarf, or a hat, right?

KB from PA and MSC from Mexico, I've ordered your gifts, and they should be arriving soon. KB, one of yours is coming from overseas so I hope it'll get to me soon.

Here's to hoping that I'll be able to mail by the first week of December!

I got to cons twice a year, and have tons of sex each time, like I'm fucking making up for lost time. I'm an actual literal attention whore and going from not talking to anyone for months to getting nonstop attention for dressing up turns me into a huge whore, I hate myself for it so much

Is it weird to wear Christmas-y prints on ILD? My comm isn't doing anything else in December it seems...

My comms having a swap meet this weekend and with ILD around the corner I'm not sure they're going to do anything for it.

Wouldn't mind an ice skating thing or hot cocoa and cookies sorta tea party.

Since we need one of these threads every week, what the correct etiquette to cosplaying an albino character? Especially if you aren't white, should you paint yourself white, or no?

Aliexpress a great alternative to ebay, and small order alternative to Taobao.

How long do customs usually hold onto packages? A couple shirts and skirts have been there for four days now. I guess technically three since today's Sunday.

There are a lot of different kinds of cute, but based off of that sweatshirt alone:
Liz Lisa, Listen Flavor, Swimmer, Swankiss, doki doki 6%, and check Tokyo Otaku Mode to get ideas

btw I'm a guy, don't care if it's girl brands as long as it's long sleeve or can look unisex

Thoughts on handmade lolita? IMO it's mostly shit, but anytime I see someone who makes it look good, I'm real impressed
115 posts and 30 images submitted.
>>
I like to make stuff myself when I have the time and love seeing good handmade clothes, but unfortunately most of what people post is shit. There are two girls in my comm who have been sewing lolita for more than five years but still get the silhouette wrong and can't figure out basic shit like matching the zipper to the color of the fabric. It's depressing.
Adding to that, several of the people I used to follow for good handmade lolita have become completely inactive online.
>>
>>9255920
Handmade is a huge part of lolita. Several brands have released patterns, you can usually find patterns in lolita magazines, but people don't usually post their handmade stuff

What do you guys do on the 'off' season? I sold at my first con this summer (also attended an art show) and now I'm excited to do more but con season is pretty much over. I've been working on new merch for next year but it just sucks. I applied to the few winter cons in the area but I waited too long and ended up waitlisted.

Have you considered looking at smaller fairs? I've done a couple and I'm doing my first AA in January.
>>
>>9254342
My problem is that my work doesn't usually fit in with most of the smaller art fairs. Everything here is mostly fine art or craft shows. My work is more horror oriented/surrealist and it's hard for me to find shows in general. I get into the anime cons and I recently tried a sci-fi con. I haven't been rejected from anything as of yet but it would be nice to find some place that I felt my work was more suited to.
