Also the sack cut isn't popular at all. If it's that cut, that's probably why

Been awhile since I've seen one, and I've collected some good ones.

What were cons like in the past? Say very late 90s to mid 00s.

I've only recently been to a couple recently and it feels like I've missed the boat and that it's full of normies.

Were they different back then?

27 and UK if it's relevant.

MCM London in 2005/2006 was very different to how it is now.
I can't really remember a lot, since I was young then, but I'm pretty sure it was just less guests, less memorabilia and probably less variation in cosplay. However, it was a lot less busy so take it how you will. It was probably just a lot similar to a smaller con that's open nowadays. Oh, and flashmob galore.

This is like 2010, so not too old, but even then the cosplay guests were just "misc." and there were only 2. Now they have like 10. This con stopped having music guests soon after too. Especially someone like Less Than Jake.

So, I wanted to have a post about a key element in cosplay, while not the BIG thing, an important thing non the less. Photography.

I wanted to talk with cosplayers on what they looked for in photography, photo tips, locations, best/worst experiences (but try and avoid say making this an X is shit (BUT if you know people who are legit creepers please let the world know). callout thread.

Anyway, lets talk photography. Are you a /p/ type, a pure artist, a believer in cinema verite?"

Photography is an important thing, but its value is depressed. Cosplayers don't know the difference between a good photo and a bad one.

Plus, anyone can get a camera and call themselves a photographer.

Last, there's no real money in it. Because of that, it's extremely unlikely that any "rockstar photographers" will emerge and take the collective game to the next level.

Cosplayers are gonna have to stick to having creeps and really bad hobbyists for photographers, especially if they continue to trash everyone they work with.

Went to a cosplay shootout at a park near me last month. they invited cosplayers and photographers. I'm just starting with a kit lens and a prime but I got some really good tips from photographers there.
Pic related was me experimenting with a remote flash a guy let me borrow
still learning though.
Story time
I cosplay every now and then with my wife cosplay more costumes. we did have one experience when doing a group cosplay one of our friends had emailed a photographer and set up a session at a con. we wanted some full body shots because hey we put work into things but the photographer kept zooming in to faces so we asked for full body which they did and then they went back to doing more portrait style stuff. still have not received images

What do you do when you're too old for lolita or kawaii? How do you transition without losing your kawaiiness or falling into depression?
136 posts and 28 images submitted.

You don't. You kill yourself at your peak and have an open casket funeral decked out in your finest so people remember you as flawless and kawaii.
>>
Try to transition to something more elegant. Elegant is good with any age and you can be cute without running around in pastel puke outfits.

Or you could just not give a shit about opinions and wear your jfash with pride.
>>
Would anyone make an number age for when to go sweet to classic? I feel 25 is appropriate but I don't know what others think.

With mire and more pattern cimpanies catering to cosplayers and Worbla being available globally what's a niche cosplay business that the cosplay world would benefit from that doesn't already exist?

Pic obviously not related

Cosplay makerspaces. I heard of one in DC once but never heard of it again. Somewhere to sew, heat plastic, and paint my heart out would be great.
>>
>>9219226
I like this idea because I'm part of a makerspace, but if I didn't teach sewing there I wouldn't be able to afford the membership of $100 a month. They have pretty much every kind of machine for metal and wood including a waterjet that cuts metal with water and ground garnet. I think membership could be less expensive for a place that sticks to wood, plastics and textiles.

$100 a month? holy shit

>Do your everyday Lolita outfits look different than your meet up outfits? Are you less picky about matching colours, prints etc? Daily coord inspo is welcome and encouraged!
I'm a daily lonelita. I usually dress in non casual. Sometimes I'll get lazy and not care about some colors matching but for the most part I take great care in picking stuff out.

>Do you see yourself as better than conlitas?
Yes. By far.

>How do people who you see on a daily basis react to you constantly wearing "out-there" clothes? (E.g. Classmates, coworkers, etc) have they learned to accept it? Do you still get comments? Do you feel you get treated very differently because of your clothes?
My S.O thinks it's cute, and I appreciate him for that. Most other people I see regularly think it's sort of strange.

> what are some of your favourite lifestyle bloggers?
I don't really have any

> what would your dream Lolita life be like? Would you live in a castle, drive a pink car, have a pet that always wears a matching outfit to yours etc.?
I'd really like my S.O to dress up a bit more formally every day. He's always wearing black casual clothing that's kind of 2edgy5u because he's a wannabe emo kid.

> Do you expect to always be a Lolita? Do you feel you will ever be "too old"?
Probably so, and no. You aren't ever too old to wear what you like.

I've been having this problem with sewing these two different fabrics together. I need to top stitch this darker triangle onto a lighter fabric, but this bunching keeps happening. I haven't the slightest idea why this is happening. I suffer.

My sewing machine is pretty limited, so I'm stick with using a buttonhole stitch because the preset zigzag is too long.
>>
>>9204512
you're probably stretching the fabric, as it's bias cut (diagonal). Ease the presser foot a little and don't hold the fabric too tight with your hands, just guide it under the foot. Also check the thread tension just in case. HTH

Guess I'll post it here again considering I'm looking for advice

>part of online community for ten years (I'm 19), been heavily involved for a little less than four years
>For years I was absolutely enamored with everyone, was sure I had found my "true companions" that I dreamed of finding as a child
>For a while now shit's been declining in activity
>Recently everyone lost faith of the people in charge as they became increasingly elitist, community is beginning to fall apart
>Realized that out of around 20 people left, I deeply care for less than five of them
>We're spread out all over the world, we're all poor by some shitty miracle, and I find it difficult to picture a future with them because they're not too well off
>Never had too many friends in person, not socially terrible but just never could find common ground with anyone, even in college now I just can't connect
>realize I might have nobody in the future to talk to, worse still that I'm going to lose the people that meant the entire world to me only a year ago
>been melancholic as fuck lately
>terrified I'm going to have a future with no friends or SO

I remember the days in Middle School where I just had nobody to talk to for what seemed like ages on end, the people I did befriend were such superficial relationships it probably adversely affects befriending people now. Shit just sucks and I don't see a way out by this point.
