Thread about characters that have the lower half of their face covered.

Due to medication side-effects I would rather cover up the lower part of my face for my next cosplay. I am a tall and thin girl and I am also comfortable with crafting more complicated designs. So if you know any characters that suit the aesthetic please do share! Thank you so much in advance!

So far I thought of:
- Sheik from the Legend of Zelda
- Nargacuga armor from Monster Hunter
- Akali from League of Legends

A thread for girls into cosplay, lolita and jfashion to share tips and tricks

for those 173 cm (5'7") and taller.
you can be tall for your area but too short for this thread.

>how tall are you
>Jfashion, or cosplay? If Jfashion, which ones?
>where do you get your clothes (for both normalfag and jfashion wear)
>most helpful advice you can give to other tall girls


I've learned that being tall, other people's photos of me always end up looking like crap if they're shorter than me. awkward up the nose shots.. so on. For those of you who care to have your picture taken, what do you do about this?

>how tall are you
178cm

>Jfashion, or cosplay? If Jfashion, which ones?
Lolita

>where do you get your clothes (for both normalfag and jfashion wear)
For lolita, I buy brand in longer lengths, or I alter stuff myself (lengthen straps, add extra ruffles to hems, etc). For normalfag it's a lot of H&M and Uniqlo because I'm lazy.

>most helpful advice you can give to other tall girls
Don't be afraid to get stuff altered, it'll look better on you if it actually fits you properly. Also underskirts should only be used as a last resort they're actually kind of terrible.
>>
>how tall are you
5'11" or 180cm
>Jfashion, or cosplay? If Jfashion, which ones?
Cosplay mostly. I like looking at lolita and Gyaru but I'd never wear it.
>where do you get your clothes (for both normalfag and jfashion wear)
Amazon, because I wear a lot of mini dresses and skinny jeans.
>most helpful advice you can give to other tall girls
For fashion, layering is a godsend when you're tall. If tights or thigh highs are too short for you, cut off the toes so you can pull them higher and wear them with boots. Opt for shorter sleeves or just wear wrist accessories to hide the fact that your sleeves are too short.

If you have proportionally large feet, Pleaser and its offshoots (Demonia, Funtasma, Bordello, Pin Up Coutre, Fabulicious) go up to sz13 US. Likewise, while Asian brands might usually be a lot smaller than US, searching "plus size" for shoes on Asian sites like Aliexpress will often net results with larger sizes.

For cosplay, don't let your height limit your choices. Most anime characters tend to be short, and tall characters often are designed and written to be the sexy, super confident types which not everyone wants to cosplay. If you really like a character who is canonically short, don't be afraid to cosplay them anyway. Also when ordering wigs, keep in mind, your longer torso might mean a wig that's beyond butt length on a model/mannequin might be just barely waist length on you, so measure before you order.

>For those of you who care to have your picture taken, what do you do about this?
I don't really do shoots, but I'd suggest making use of your environment. Pose sitting down, lounging, or leaning against something, or make up for the height difference using stairs.

Let's talk about brandwhores!

First off, some questions:
>What is a brandwhore?
>Do you consider yourself a brandwhore?
>How does the term brandwhore make you feel?
>Are there any characteristics that seperate brandwhores from people with a ton of brand?
>Are there ita brandwhores?

>>What is a brandwhore?
To put it simply, a brandwhore is someone who's wardrobe is primarily or completely composed of brand.
>>Do you consider yourself a brandwhore?
Yes.
>>How does the term brandwhore make you feel?
It's kind of an elitist term, whether that is a good thing or a bad thing, I'm not sure.
>>Are there any characteristics that seperate brandwhores from people with a ton of brand?
Brandwhores are loathe to buy anything that's not from a large and well established Japanese brand and are looking to replace all budget friendly options with brand.
>>Are there ita brandwhores?
Of course.

this is kinda silly but okay!

>What is a brandwhore?
somebody with a decently sized wardrobe that has more brand than anything. somebody who only has two dresses, and they're both AP, is not a brandwhore

>Do you consider yourself a brandwhore?
kinda. i've been called one

>How does the term brandwhore make you feel?
it's silly and usually used by people who don't have brand to make themselves feel better
>d-don't listen to her, she's just a brandwhore!!!
>fucking brandwhores telling me that bodyline isn't brand!!!

>Are there any characteristics that seperate brandwhores from people with a ton of brand?
anybody with a ton of brand will probably be called a brandwhore. but if we're going to draw a distinction, it's probably in the attitude. somebody who's elitist and thinks brand is better, and fits the prior criteria, might be a brandwhore

>Are there ita brandwhores?
yeah. you can't buy good taste

unless you pay a personal stylist i guess
>>
>What is a brandwhore?
Someone who's thrown out logic in place of labels regardless of what said labels are attached to.
>Do you consider yourself a brandwhore?
I am brand-literate but yet to fall off the deep end and loose my ability to reason based on the actual product in front of me verse the tag attached to it.
>How does the term brandwhore make you feel?
Weird. Because I want to say there is no such thing as a brandwhore, but then I keep seeing actual evidence of real brandwhores.
>Are there any characteristics that separate brandwhores from people with a ton of brand?
It's the lack of ability to judge the value and quality of an item based on the merits of it's construction, material and design. A brandwhore is very concerned with knowing where a piece came from / who it can be attributed to, while ignoring it's it's functionally a "good" item.
>Are there ita brandwhores?
Yes. I think most brandwhores are "intellectual itas".

It seems Terracon is still alive, recently switched management and are giving away tickets on their Facebook page. They also did an interview with AVO in which they claim Terracon will be different as it "offers a fresh look into our other events" and will also have karaoke and food stands next to the previously announced cosplay competition.
They also made a minor update to their programming which now includes having your picture taken with rodents, reptiles or birds. So... any thoughts?

Also here's the link to the interview: http://avo-blog.nl/2016/11/14/avo-blog-interview-illes-dijken-terra-con/
