I mean there are SOME sack dresses that can be made acceptable on tiny rakes, but has anyone ever seen this monstrosity look good?!? The sailor neckline puts this sack dress into a whole new category of awful.
Why do people even buy these granny sacks

"the dress is a replica, like it or not"
Old thread is saging:
Planning on cosplaying Sakura in the summer, so making a thread for inspiration. Post the good, the bad, and the ugly.
Among the many cons this weekend, anybody going to MonsterCon? Seems to be quite big, taking place in La Rural.
And maybe some kickstarting questions
Where have you been to lately? Somewhere good?
>What have you dressed as?
>there is more people from Argentina in /cgl/
I'm so fucking happy to know I'm not the only one here.
>Where have you been to lately?
I usually just go to my local con, but have missed the most recent ones due to some health issues, plus they have been full of League of Legends cosplayers and I'm not too much into the game.
Is funny now that I think about it. But I everytime I go to a con I go with a diffrent group of people, but at some point the group disbands and I end meeting with the same friends and spending the rest of the day with them.
NYCC is over, so what was the good and bad? Hated the food trucks in the underpass this year! Made it hard for us cosplayers to meet up with everyone to shoot!
It was my first year at nycc and i missed mist of my panels due to underestimating how fast lines filled up. Shouldve gotten in line like an hour early. Still hada good time taking pictures, going to the dbz and star wars meet. Hopefully ill be able to go next year
me and a couple overwatch and dark souls cosplays i saw that i liked.
Last thread archived. Post pictures and planned cosplays; ask for help if you need it.
Oh hell yeah, that Bismuth is the bismuth!
I've been working on smoky quartz. At this point I'm basically just waiting on the gems from Etsy and I have to dye my hair.
Are you a FUN-LOVING SEAGULL? Post something fun and /cgl/-related you like to do.
Then, attempt to do a project or activity that someone else in this thread posts, if you have never done that /cgl/-related thing before. Report back whether it was indeed fun.
I'll start: I like lip-synching a random song from a playlist on Shuffle, in a full coord, in front of a full-length mirror, until I feel confident and no longer take myself too seriously. This helps me get used to seeing myself acting like a dork in lolita so I feel less ridiculous wearing frills out in normal life.
Sometimes I buy 50 dicks off ebay and suck them all. I've also made a drinking game where I read through the current Lolita General or CoF thread and take a shot for every post that is off-topic.
It's today boys. Anyone else going?
Here's my schedule. Shit format because last minute. Come find me on Day 1 and get a Patrick Bateman business card!
>going for two days but only wearing one cosplay
>can't decide which day to wear cosplay
>afraid I'll see cosplayers from same show the day I'm not wearing my cosplay
There's no gathering for this either I'm don't know what to do fuck
Also I heard that the con moved into south hall, is that where everything is now instead of the exhibit hall??
Aside from being super excited about this release, I wanted to know of any other lit recommendations you gulls might have? If not, have you guys ever read essays or seen a documentary that you approved of/loved? Please discuss!
I'd really like to see a sample page before I buy it though
There was that one where Lor explained the fashion to the guy, and had him dress in ouji after.
He was really genuine, and while it was obvious he probably didn't like the fashion itself, he wanted to learn about it and was concerned about his coord being well received.
I especially liked how he focused on the fashion and immediately got the 'Lolita' question out of the way v right off the bat, and didn't address that or that kind of narrative afterwards.
He came off as truly interested rather than judgemental.
Most other similar things usually spin a certain narrative, or the host talks about how weird and uncomfortable they are.
I dont own these but heres a few from http://www.storenvy.com/stores/180045-scorpionstar-shop that look cute
Didn't see one in the catalog. Post the worst of the worst.
The Nijmegen meet will take place tomorrow (Thursday the 27th). We'll meet up in front of the Grote Markt entrance of the former V&D around 17:30 and take things from there. Just look for a guy with a ring beard holding a print-out of Tully.

Also reposting the infograph because why not...
Not gonna lie, a Christmas themed con sounds like so much fun. I'm a huge sucker for the winter holidays, and seeing people cosplay in a Christmas theme would probably send me over the edge with joy.
Last one reached image limit
>"What is Menhera?"
>"What is Gurokawa?"
Please try to ignore/do not respond to obvious bait (like "that" one anon that is reposting bad coords for drama and calls everyone fat).
New idol thread, any groups allowed. Post any and all idol cosplays, anime or real. Bonus points if there's a good dance group.
Any idols at NYCC?
I'm pretty young and I'm obsessed with old cosplay and conventions in general, it all seemed so much different than now. Anything up until the early/MAYBE mid 2000's.
I guess I just like seeing how everyone fared when cosplay stuff (wigs, premade costumes) weren't as accessible, and what series were popular in cosplay back then that you never see now. I don't have that many photos to dump, just stuff I found from googling old conventions. So feel free to share anything, good or bad
