Hey, my spidersuit is on the way to my home! Finally. It will be my first cosplay.
Besides using on cons, I plan to make charity work with it. Visit hospitals, daycares, schools... my question is: should I make a Facebook page to expose my work, both in cosplaying and both in charity work?
Not saying you have to do this, but in my area, you pretty much have to be part of an organization (just something that "looks" official) or people are hesitant to let you near kids/mentally challenged. A facebook page would help you have a central spot that people can go to when they want to reach you.

I'm a complete idiot and accidentally only shipped the headdress in the Little Dipper OP set. So obviously I went shopping to make me feel better about it.
Don't derail it this time.

Should note that above post is not me creeping, that was from insta.
Are you fucking kidding me right now?
I know it hasn't ALWAYS been a thing but... it's more common than ever, no? It's most likely that if you are part of a comm, you go to meets at least what, once a year?
As someone who wears it outside of meets and cons, and also to meets and cons... what is with the desire to try and out girls for being- fake? or what is it you're trying to get them on exactly?
Like what is the point of calling someone out for doing what it is fucking common place in the hobby?
I thought the conlita thing was irritating, yet true.. but meetlita feels extremist.
Do you all have your heads so far up your asses to think that in order to be a real lolita, you gotta wear it all the fucking time and never socialize?
USAfag here. What do you all think of it? How is the process and does anyone have any experience with it? I'm interested in participating but the site hasn't been updated for a while.
WCS was once the most prestigious cosplaz event, but nowadays everyone knows it's just a farce and there are other competitions which deserve the attention. And in fact WCS clearly loses it's glamour more and more. I used to follow every bit I could get my eyes on but this year is as boring as last year.
Yeah they've been picking some homely looking people. There was that year with cupcake cosplay I think it was where the US was represented by a chick with no chin. Just go ahead and send the blue people of Kentucky to represent us while you're at it.
Only compete if your end goal isn't just to go to Japan. With all the time and money you'll invest in the competition you'd he better off just planning a vacation.
The former US alum that ran it were not great. They had no idea how to run or facilitate an event. This year Japan took the reigns so I'm not sure how it went. I do know that because of the switch the USA qualifier was announced with about a month to prepare. We're all assuming Anime Expo will have the competition for next year so if you seriously want to go for it plan on that. With that said they've moved the contest every year for the past 3-4 so...who knows
Also, make sure your partner is as committed to it as you and is doing it for the same reasons. If you aren't on the same page it won't end well. You are going to spend a lot of time together, make sure you can handle each other.
A collection of games with the most accurate lolita stuff so you can make cute coords or if you really want, make a bunch of itas. If there's any good lolita dress up games I missed, please share them!
What would you consider as the most treasured item you've ever gotten your hands on from a con, either as a volunteer, standard con-goer, or guest.

Is anybody going??
Bought my 4-day pass for this year a few days after Dragoncon 2016 so I could get the lowest price. Last year was the best experience I've had yet, and I've got high hopes for this year as well.

Any cosplay or J-fashion-centric Youtube creators that you follow, admire, or find cringey?
I want to start making videos in and about cosplay on Youtube (I've technically already started) and want to see what other people find enjoyable or annoying.
