It's a little early, but let's get a Dragoncon thread started.
Who's going? Any new cosplays? favorite past Dcon moments?
The hype starts now.
I'm staying at the Marriott, my tickets have been purchased way in advanced, but I lost my job a month ago. I haven't finished my costumes, and I have no money. Fuck fuck fuck, I'm not ready.
I'll be there. Somebody convinced me to do Ekko from League.
3D printing a part for his sword right now. Feeling regret as I won't be getting any sleep with this noise but I can't stop mid print.
Didn't see one in the catalog. Anyone planning for back to school yet?

>Anyone planning for back to school yet?
Wait what? You guys actually wear this to school? How do you react to people wondering why you're wearing a uniform without your school having one?
If I had the money to put together nanchatte outfits when I was in school, I would have worn it. I was already labeled as the "weird" kid anyway, and once you're already an outcast you start to realize three's not much point in worrying about other's thinking your crazy over your clothes.
I don't wear nanchatte, but I sometimes put together outfits that are inspired by elements from school uniforms, as I really like they way the "cute" ones look.
New one since old maxed out in images. Old thread.
What is your favorite old school coord and why?
I have always loved shiro and this one has the special feel. I just love the poofy skirt and bloomers. Maybe one day I'm able to do a nice shiro coordinate myself.
This one always gets me, there's just something about it.

Did anyone else go to the Japan Festival in Mississauga yesterday? I had a great time.
I know there's a sewing thread already but that's geared to mostly lolita, not all substyles of jfash, and doesn't have everything I want to discuss so
>Do you make or design your own clothing, jewelry, accessories etc. for jfash or your own style?
>What materials do you work best with?
>Do you sell anything you make to other people?
>Do you follow anyone on social media that makes their own stuff?
Also post favorite places to buy materials from, patterns and tutorials, inspirations, and of course your own creations. Links to your store are more than welcome as long as you have good stuff.
Get up and be a dancing weeb, /cgl/! Talk about dance cover threads from soloists and groups in the odottemita world!
>Hoshi starts another campaign
>leaves social media literally less than 24 hours later
>"I want to become a better idol!"
Hoshi step 1 is to stop being a delusional kid and starting these campaigns. I highly doubt her parents know about any of her campaigns to raise money.
Can you help me come up with some Halloween costume ideas? I need something that will cover my face, like a mask or a helmet. I don't want it to be anything too obscure either. Last year I was a mummy (pic inspired me.) I'm sort of leaning towards a classic boxy robot, but I've still got some time to change my mind.
Hi /cgl/, /fa/ here. How can I achieve this asthetic? There is just something magically peaceful and genuine about it. I am asking here because I believe you all have something called "Mori" or something that looks sort of like this. Can you point me in the direction of some guides, images, blogs, or stores? I am a male btw.
I think Natural Kei is more your best bet.
Mori in my mind is more feminine with long skirts, layer after layer of lace and undyed cottons.
Natural Kei is less 'Girl living in the forest' and more 'Person living near the forest' you can also use richer colors.
Hey folks, don't really lurk around these parts all that much, so forgive me if I'm making a thread about this when another exists where I could ask about it.
Has anyone here ever done a good Predator cosplay/costume?
Do you know someone who has?
I've found this one, fairly decent (or so I think, but what do I know, I literally just found it now) site that shows the building of it, but I'm not really sure that's achievable for the average person.
Other than that, might you folks have any input/advice on how to go about this? I don't mind dedicating lots of time to the costume, or learning whatever I need to in order to make it.
It is a really slow board, but you might want to check the catalog for the help thread as seagulls can get salty about individual threads made for cosplay making advice. Though if you try and dump some more predator cosplay and make it a more general thread it could help.
I completely missed that one. Sorry.
I guess I'll just dump some of the Predator related stuff I found in the past few days.
Alien stuff is welcome too.

Next five /cgl/ related events:
>Abunai! (August 26th - 28th, Veldhoven NB) is the other big anime convention. It's going on NOW and Sunday tickets are still available!
>Amsterdam Comic Con (August 27th & 28th, Amsterdam NH) is a comic fair very similar to DCC, except this one is hosted by Showmasters. Tickets start at €15 a day.
>Elfia (September 24rd & 25th, Arcen LB) is an outdoor medieval/fantasy convention. The programming is still in the making so there's not a lot I can really say about it yet.
>Tomofair (October 1st & 2nd, Nijmegen GLD) is a cheap small fair with anime, manga and other J-culture relevant items. Just keep your expectations low and you might find yourself having a fun day.
>First Look (October 7th - 9th, Utrecht) is a gaming convention in the Jaarbeurs. They have a cosplay compo where judges mocked contestants last year.
Full Dutch convention agenda: http://pastebin.com/QaZ23aUA If there are any cons missing form the list, make sure to post it in the thread so I can add them.
Hey the meet was fun! It just couldve used more people.
>Third time's the charm, especially when you are now sitting in a pool.
I just left the pool, did I perhaps see you there? Describe yourself OP
>Describe yourself OP
White male, 1.80m tall, dark hair, ring beard and a beer belly. I'm wearing white swimming shorts and a pair of wayfarers, and can currently be spotted with a glass of Duvel and listening to Porcupine Tree.
At least now I know it was a Seagull who just ran out of my back yard.
I would. My mom doesn't seem to understand how much furry means to me and won't take me to furry cons.
In honor of the unfortunately named Sissy Time, let's talk about all the pieces with names just as bad or that cross the line into looking like ageplay.
What gets you pumped to work on those costumes or homemade lolita/jfash pieces, gulls? Do you listen to music or watch tv and movies in the background? Do you use app to track your progress or make schedules to stick to? Share your tricks to stay on task!
While working on cosplay, I usually put on episodes of either sitcoms or sci-fi that I've seen before and can follow without really paying attention. Or sometimes video game soundtracks. And I keep schedules on a whiteboard on my wall and use colorful markers to check off each task. It seems to help.
I play either the 2005 Pride and prejudice of the 2011 Jane Eyre on loop while sewing, and I always take progress photos after I stop for the day so I can show myself that I don't have that far to go before the finish line.
This!!! Except I'm a 1996 BBC Colin-Firth-wet-shirt kinda girl. Found the complete series on dvd at a junk shop, so naturally it goes on for the full 6 hours while I'm sewing. Jane Eyre adaptations always make me cry aha, too distracting. But on the Brontë sisters, I love cutting patterns and ironing fabric listening to the Wuthering Heights audiobook, cc prose on YouTube.
Oh oh and any series by the Victorian Farm lot, they're all on YouTube too. Gets me nostalgic, watched them mostly when they aired on the telly.
Sorry for wall of text like.
Post cosplays with well done colorful skin and share tips about altering skin color for cosplay.
