Hi, /cgl/. I have a question for female cosplayers (or male crossplayers). I'm a writer, and I'm trying to create the appearance of a character for my current story. One thing I always do when designing characters is look at cosplayers, and talk to cosplayers. Not necessarily because I expect my characters to ever be cosplayed (they never have) but I like to design the characters with the idea that "what kind of fantastic clothes would people actually like to wear."

My question is simple though, pic related might give it away, what are your thoughts on cosplaying female characters with bald heads?

Its hard to do because bald caps are either shitty looking or expensive and most people don't want to shave their head.

I wouldn't because it's a hard look to pull off, you have to be super beautiful facially
This scene cracked me up though
Bald is odd because generally speaking only women who are traditionally beautiful can "pull off" the look in most people's eyes, and these same women would still look better with hair anyway. (i.e., Charlize Theron.)

Very few cosplayers will ever try to emulate bald characters as being bald; the vast majority of Furiosa cosplayers will still have short pixie cuts, most Aang gender bends will suddenly have long hair (without even the front part shaved like airbender women usually do), Eleven cosplayers will always do her blonde wig instead of the bald version. There are TONS of bald female characters across comics and sci-fi, but they're almost all very obscure or else aliens that would take a lot of body paint or even prosthetics, like the Asari from Mass Effect (if you count fleshy fronds as baldness, anyway.)

There's also the problem where a lot of people like to emulate a character and look at least somewhat the part. Hair is very recognizable. People will often remember others for their hairstyles (cut, colour, etc) other than their faces; a wig is way easier to do than a bald cap, and having no hair draws SO much attention to the face. If you don't really have the face for a character, it'll be a lot more obvious if you're bald than if you have a recognizable hairstyle.

If you still want the same feeling, though, maybe an undercut on your female character instead, OP?

Anyone trying to get on top of the Inktober craze? My poor excuse for not doing so is working a fulltime job.

I'm doing inktober, but I'm not really using it as a marketing opportunity or anything. I just love the excuse to play with brush pens for a month, and getting the chance to do some traditional art when all I ever do for work & AA is digital.
Do colored acrylic charms sell much worse than clear? I kind of dig Zap's frosted acrylics.

What are your favorite and least favorite Etsy stores for jfashion and accessories?
65 posts and 18 images submitted.
Moon Bunny is my all time favorite, I've been thinking about this candy house necklace for a long time. Sucks that she's in Russia and her stuff takes forever to get here, but it's always worth it.
Seconding this, I love Cute Moon Bunny accessories, I have a hair clip and necklace from them and they're so well made and adorable. Takes about a month for it to arrive, though.

Kawaii Goods is alright, I only like the bear hat and the cookie clothes. The rest is just a clusterfuck.
Let me go through my favorite-ed shops. I dont believe I've ordered from any of them, so I dont have any irl experience with them.

shop/FigliaXHANAKO - Taiwan lolita brand, i've seen one of their JSKs in person and it was really nice. I really like the strawberry print they have up

shop/SakuraFairy - lolita accessories

shop/milkybon - cute sculpted and resin stuff

DreamCathedral - anon from resin threads, beautiful cameo stuff

shop/JellyUltra - another anon from resin threads

shop/BatnBunny - adorable needlefelt stuff

shop/NozomiCrafts - more cute needlefelt,

shop/BadgersBakery - really great miniature food jewelry as well as miniatures for BJDs

shop/KawakkoiiParty - some cute weeb-shit type shirts

shop/ChicKawaii -adorable sweet enamel pins

shop/FineGeekJewelry - metal geeky/magical girl jewelry. Available in precious metals

shop/Deedeegoods/items - sculpted sweet charms etc

Share feels. Good or bad, as long as they're cosplay related.

My friend lost a toe last month, and she's been elf conscious about cosplaying ever since. It hurts to watch.

>some friends see me in burando
>now they only contact me if they want money

This happens way too often,

>buy secondhand clothes from a girl in need to help her out, we become friends
>she learns i wear burando and is impressed, we stop talking for a while (unrelated)
>suddenly she calls me a week later (she hasn't even shipped the clothes yet) saying how she has bpd
>comes crying to me saying she can't afford medication anymore and needs me to send $100 asap (keep in mind I bought some
>pretty much tell her "good luck with that"
>she tells me last time she was off her medication she tried killing herself and she told me she was absolutely positive she'd try so again unless she gets the money to get medication
>pretty much tell her "good luck with that"

the other story i cant mention because I know the person lurks /cgl/.. but if they realize what they did I just want them to know thats why i stopped hanging out. your constant asking me for money wasn't cool.

The problem is it is one of the worst lineups I can imagine. Link related


This whole thing is literal nobodies. I don't have the slightest clue who any of these people are yet my parents are threatening to triple my rent to £30 a month if I don't get at least 10 pictures with 'celebrities'.

How the fuck do I deal with this shit? I have bad social anxiety at the best of times so approaching random failed celebrities from 80's British TV shows and modern day shit daytime Dave TV is not going to go down well. I was thinking of buying a Spiderman costume to look like I am excited by the prospect, then I can find pictures on the website after of the various people who will probably go dressed as Spiderman posing with the 'celebrities' and pretend it is me.

Look at that lineup, it is rubbish. I have never been to a con before, which is why I need advise. I have already purchased the DVD of 'Storage Wars' and intend to forge a few signatures onto it as a backup plan in case my current plan fails.

Literally all you have to do is not go
