>Do you have a job? Part-time? Full-time? Salaried?
full time salaried, plus a part time side job
>How much of your income/spending money do you spend on cosplay/jfashion?
all of my part time money and a bug chunk of my salary. probably more than I should, but less than rent...
>Are you in debt? How bad?
nope! my fiancé has a fair amount of student loans to pay off, though... so that's coming
>Most expensive costume/coord?
I don't know off the top of my head, but my Halloween and Christmas coords tend to get pretty expensive...
>What are you saving for right now?
honestly? blouses. I need a bunch more and for some reason I'm really picky about them... I usually wind up dropping as much on a blouse as I would on a main piece...
>Saving for any other major expenses (emergencies, car, house, retirement, etc)?
I have a 401k at work, and some emergency money put aside. I should probably be saving for a house, but eh
>Budgeting tips?
buy used, keep a spreadsheet of expenses, don't go into credit card debit because interest=brand
My boyfriend buys me all of my main pieces. I'm pretty fortunate. I buy all of my blouses and shoes and such and that in itself is too much for my part time job, but I'm also in school so I'm excited to get paid a full salary eventually and be more independent.

Old thread is saging.

And to make up for the lack of Tully in the OP image, have this quick and dirty colourisation of the original Tully scribble and an attempt at a casual Tully cosplay outfit.

What is singles day and why is it hype?
Different anon but singles day (11/11) is like the American Black Friday. It's the one day that shops go crazy with sales and you can basically find stuff 50% or more off if you're lucky.

I think last year there were $9.3billion in sales last year?
11/11 is called Singles Day because it started out as a festival to celebrate being single among young people. I'm just guessing but I like to think it's because South Korea turned 11/11 into Pepero Day which became a sort of extra Valentines where you go out and buy Korean pocky and exchange them. Then Japan made Pocky Day on the same day so someone got it in their mind to turn China's 11/11 day into something different and China has a LOT of singles.. thus, it was born.
As for why it's the biggest shopping holiday? Well, it's either because it caught on and retails saw it as an opportunity OR because being single means you sit at home sadly and online shop to make yourself feel better so why the fuck not make it a shopping holiday?

It's so big that most shopping services put out advances notices requiring that you place orders for 11/11 at least two weeks early and even then it's not guaranteed that you'll get everything because everyone saves up orders for that day.
The shops usually start advertising their 11/11 sales weeks in advance and will either show the full price or a 'mystery' price like:
>Normal Price: 143.78Y
>11/11 Price: 1??.78Y
Where you don't know what you're paying until that day but they can still advertise a big discount. This method though is a bit of a gamble since you don't know if you'll get 43Y off or just 14Y.

Taobao also updates their site so you can search solely for 11/11 deals ahead of time to make your cart lists.

I've already got a cart going for 11/11 with stuff I want to buy and when it gets closer and they start showing sales prices I can go through my cart and if an item isn't on sale, I can just copy+paste the keywords, sort by 11/11 deals, and find a cheaper option!

OTTea is upon us!
What does everyone plan on wearing?
Who do you think will win best dressed?
Who are your favorite vendors?
149 posts and 56 images submitted.
So stoked to see everyone's coords. Interested in all the vendors, but it's pretty cool that they got Lolita Collective to come out.
This will be my first OTTea, and only my third ever coord. I'm really nervous about it. I'm going with a themed coord that I know is overdone, but it kind of lets me explore coordinating more without fear of fucking it up too badly. Seeing as this is my first kne ever, what can I expect? Is everyone pretty punctual or is it more of a people wandering in and out type of thing? Are people in this comm nice? Do you get ignored if you have a simpler type of coord? Sorry for the silly questions, just feeling a little anxious.
There are a lot of e-famous people going to this years party. Not surprised since this is a perfect opportunity for them to gain their likes on social media.

What are you gulls doing for Halloween?

My wardrobe's all classic so I'm thinking of going as Mary Poppins this year, but I've never been to a halloween meetup before so I don't know if it's spoopy enough. Do people usually stick to a scary theme for these things, or does anything go?
I'm being a boring faggot and going in Nameless Poem. Not even trying to do something creative with it because I don't want to become a winged, horned clusterfuck.
Well I was going to try doing a 'forest nun' sort of theme. I know that sounds stupid but hear me out. Like I have the green nameless poem and I wanted to kind of look like the forest was taking me over, like I'd have ivy and flowers spreading over me. I had 99% of the resources to do this as well and I brought it all to my new college accommodation, which is 4 hours away from my house.

...........but then it turns out I forgot my petticoat.

State beforehand whether you roll for Cosplay or Jfashion. If jfash, bonus points for stating style/substyle.

Cosplay: pick a specific, existing character according to what you roll. You roll 7 you pick a witch/warlock from manga, western movies, etc. Example: Harry Potter, Yuuko Ichihara, Willow Rosenberg.
Easymode: shitty closet cosplays, shoulders up make up tests, photoshop, premade costumes. Hardmode: legitimate cosplay.
Dubs can either mean sexifying a character of your choice, or just picking a sexy character to begin with.

Jfashion: base a coord around your roll, and the style/substyle stated. You roll 7 you do witch/warlock lolita, EGA, gyaru, menehera, whatever style you picked.
Easymode: collages. Hardmode: documented worn coords.
If dubs, and sexy isn't an option (because lolita, for example), base your coord on a specific character in the way that disneybounders do.

Feel free to bend the rules enough to make this work for you! It's better to make it a bit easier and just do it than making it to hard and leaving the thread without content. Good luck!

Rolling, jfash / shitty quasi-lolita style
Jfash, specifically Lolita, Larme, and Menhera.
Also, if you pick Jfash, how would number 9 work?
There's a limited amount of these that I can do but I'll give it a spin

I love Seven, but whoever designed those glasses needs to be punched in the face because there is so way they'll ever look good IRL

>I'll never have the perfect Zen cosplay BF
they didn't even look good in game.

>tfw 90% of cosplays of any otome game are girls dressed as dudes
>for mystic messenger its the above but done even more poorly
I don't know, I got stuck on his route because I wouldn't be outright mean to people and I'm tired of him being a tsundere bitch.

How does your SO feel about you being into cosplay?

Are they into it too? They don't care? They shit on it?
82 posts and 10 images submitted.
My last few s/o I met at cons and they were already into it, so it makes my life easier in that sense. In fact I think we met because of the cosplays we were wearing.
Mine wants to cosplay, but most of the stuff I cosplay from doesn't have many guy characters or he's not interested in them, and he seems to gravitate towards male power fantasy characters that he wouldn't really fit into.
Mine's as normie as normie gets, but he's pretty supportive of my cosplaying and has even said he might dress up for photos if I made his costumes and would be willing to go to something like DragonCon. He tried going to a smaller con with me and didn't hate it, but it definitely wasn't for him. But yeah, I'm just happy to be with someone who accepts my weird hobby and encourages me to do what makes me happy.

Last one saged, post your work in progress pictures! What are you working on? Are you at any roadblocks?

Working on Tsurumaru from Touken Ranbu! It's been slow going but I'm getting there. Going to uni soon, so that will slow my progress even more... here's most of what I have so far. Not pictured are the shin things (unfinished) and the wig.
Just finished my Riptire. Mild paint touchups and some weathering left to do but I made it in three days so i'm happy with it.

Forgive the messy living room picture. Its been a very long week.

K-9 is done. Just need to plug in the R/C bits do a final test and then it can be broken down and shipped out. Not my most impressive or complex project but Its nice to have a neat gift for my sister.

Unfamiliar with the source material but its looking great so far.

Superb work. Very nice weathering as well.

Fuck yeah I'm getting that shit. Those games are amazing
I fucking love the Style Savvy games.
I actually play this (the EU version) on a modded 3DS. Some really cute outfit in it. Shame they turned some characters black to be "progressive".
