Cringe cosplay thread
Gotta catch em all, m'lady
Maybe a different fabric would have been better for the jacket but it's pretty accurate and I don't see anything wrong other than some wrinkles in it.
What's cringy about it?
brand new larp thread because previous one hit the image limit, just for the sake of variety
If needed I still have a shitton of pics from Drachenfest.
Yeah these pics are pretty noice keep em´ coming, i think we just dont react as much since its summer.
In winter we have way less new pics so we tend to react more to the pic than the post itself i've noticed
Registration opens later on today, who's going and who has plans to cosplay for the Castlevania theme?
I really wanted to go.
It looks so cool. It's a video game con.
But for fuck sake the fact the hotels sold out AND THE OVERFLOW AS WELL within minutes burns my ass into wanting to never touch the convention now.
It's been a while since we had one.
I just bought a hoop skirt from IKEA, and I have no idea how to store it. Can someone please give me some tips?
i'm interested in this thread, also on how to make a petti
question: how many pettis do you usually wear with a dress?
Just keep it flat like it was packed and either store it in the original bag or a similar size bag. It can stick out of the bag; that's fine, it just has to be wide enough to not deform the hoops. The main goal you are seeking is to make sure the bag keeps it from touching the floor directly. Try to store it against a wall or wedged into a narrow space between a piece of furniture and a wall.
When I used off-brand, homemade petticoats I use to layer two to get the proper shape.
Now I own a classical puppets in both Lolita shapes and I only have to use the one. It's worth investing in the money to get the right share the first time; I spent $60 making a petticoat with fabric on sale and it deflated constantly. I bought a classical puppets for $35 and have been using them for two years without any form of failure.
The Ikea Hoop skirt mentioned by OP is worth it if you are willing to modify it; if you already do a lot of crafting you will already have the supplies so all you are spending is $20 for the hoop skirt. It will never last as long or be as sturdy as a steel skirt, but it will work well enough as long as you do not wear heavy materials over it (thick velvet, cordory, pleather, denim, thick cotton, tons of layers).
Most jfashion styles obviously cater to Asian body types. A lot of them have sizing that's limited or garment cuts that aren't flattering on people who don't have the small build most Japanese people have. A lot of people get criticised on here for being too tall/chubby/big-breasted for certain outfits. What jfashion is most suitable to people with more western body types? I'm not talking about being fat, I'm talking about people in healthy weight ranges who don't have stereotypical Asian figure. What cuts or items are more flattering to them? What style has the most of these? Pic unrelated.
Probably something like cult party or dolly kei, or fairy kei, as items can be thrifted or bought from local or vintage stores or something rather than from Japanese brands. I dont know if you've looked through the larme threads but there's been kind of an ongoing discussion on non-asian body types in the style. Personally i think larme can look good on someone with a non Asian body, especially taller people, but you may have to pay closer attention to the balance and style of the fashion so you're not showing too much leg for example
In Lolita fashion something you can do if you have an hourglass figure is to get dresses that have a more corset shape to their bodice. Most Lolita big brands don't so dresses like this but Alice and the Pirates & Victorian Maiden do make dresses in that kind of cut.
With Lolita fashion the two major points is to make sure the skirt is the right shape and there is enough skin coverage; beyond that you can mess around with the shape of the bodice and other details.
I'm not sure if you've thought your quest through...
>very definition of jfashion means it's fashion for/by japanese people
>looking for clothes meant for japanese people that don't fit japanese people it's meant for.
idk, you can try looking for oversized clothes (t-shirts, sweaters) or fat people clothes like Plumprimo. Fair warning though, oversized clothes tend to fit odd on actually larger sized people, and the fat people clothes tend to be cut for short people anyway.
Alternatively, lolita fashion is at the point where half the time they're either marketing for small chinese girls or larger American girls, so the dresses run the gamut between being teeny-tiny Asian sized or generous shirring that fit larger sizes. No lolita brand seems capable of wrapping their head around the idea of boobs bigger than B-cup, though, and the dresses still tend to be cut for shorter torsos, even if they're tea-length.
You last option is to stick to your own Western brands that actually fit you, and simply opt for copying the look without buying the original brand, plus buying only accessories and bags to help achieve the look. Good if you can DIY and have a good eye for fashion, otherwise you might just be happier doing your own brand of Western fashion instead of trying to squeeze yourself into jfashion.

In honor of the Meta tea party coming up at AWA lets have a good Meta coord dump!
So holiday matsuri just announced an international guest who will be judging for their Cosplay Super Show. Does this mean he's also judging to send a US team to CICAF and CC? Could they not get a respectable American judge to help with that?
Also AFO this weekend. Who's attending?

I don't necessarily post about Jfash related things, but I post pictures of living in Tokyo.
In college I was super into Jfash but now I work for a major Japanese corporation which has limited my ability to dress up fun (Cute OL style for life)
Still, I like exploring fashion neighborhoods and while I don't have those pictures up yet, I hope to post them soon. If you're interested in Japan beyond just fashion, please do follow!
