Just a blouse, socks, and some molds. Expecting to get in on a group taobao order of stuff later as well.
Reposting as I didn't realize the last thread was on it's way out.
Just got Homura's dress and tights set. Tbh I wasn't expecting much, but I quite like it and think it fits well even with my wide shoulders.
Some people (including myself) were irked that the skeletal feet weren't mirrored at the bottom. However, I was pleasantly surprised to find out that the print is the exact same on the back, except the feet are printed in the opposite direction and there's a tiny copyright at the toes. So long as I'm not wearing open toe shoes, one side can be worn backwards so that the feet match properly.
Anyone here tried out the Kawaii Box? I've never done a monthly subscription thing before, but I really want to try this out, but I'm considering just splurging on the 1 year subscription...
Hmmm it seems food is included too and it's free shipping.. I'll keep this in mind.
Talk about things that bug you about conventions, and annoying things cosplayers do. Can be minor issues or a big thing.

When a person says theyre mainly there for the dance party and dont really care about anime... then why are you here?

One thing I hate is cosplayers posting WIPs to 'ask for concrit' but sperg out the second you give them any concrit. I can sugarcoat like nobody's business but if your satin skirt is glued together with mod podge and you specifically ask for help, you have to accept that people will tell you that you need to improve.
As for cons, I just really hate neckbeards who latch onto people and follow them around the whole time. You'd think they'd get the damn hint after being repeatedly asked to leave, but that just means you're tsundere and want it secretly~ and they keep on tailing you like a lost whale until Mummy comes to pick them up.
Maybe I'm just incredibly unlucky and nobody else really has that as a recurring problem, idk.
>mainly there for the dance party
Most con raves are shit, most room parties (the ones I've been to, at least) have a distinctly weeby vibe, and the whole point of the damn con is that it's about anime.
I just don't understand people like that either, you want to party so bad then go to a nightclub. You'll have better music and better drinks.
No online comm thread? Let's fix that
Yeah, I don't see a problem. It's not the most awesome lolita blouse but it's fine.
What happened to the last thread? I'm pretty sure it didn't autosage - was it deleted for some reason?
Can we have a thread with cosplays of western/eastern musicians/musical alter egos/promo material characters?
Anything goes, VKei, Gorillaz, glamrockers, modern pop stars, etc.
You're welcome, but I need some help when it comes to dumping!
I feel like cosplaying musicians is always really tricky/iffy
Metal Gear Solid general.
Bumping with myself because why not. I did MGS3 Ocelot over the weekend at Anime Next
Bumping with my friend's Armstrong and my Miller.
Hey there /cgl/. This is my first cosplay ever, and I decided to do Naked Snake from MGS3.
Personally I think it looks okay at the moment, but I am working on the harness and switchbox at the moment and I think it'll look a lot better than it does currently. I am considering on doing a bit of a cut to try to lose some weight, but I'm not sure.
Any advice or tips on how to improve it? How about tips for cosplaying in general? I'm heading to AnimeMidwest as my first con as well.

Does anyone know of a real life shoulder detail that looks like somewhat this? It's not an action back because the flap extends to the front. My guess is it's supposed to represent taking in the shoulder due to Kino's small stature.
From what I can tell, this dollfie clothing is accurate to the original art. It appears that the shoulder was taken in leaving a flap of cloth on the outside. I tried to pin up a shirt this was, and as expected it seemed off. It's going to be hard to sew and also get the desired fit. I might also end up with unusually pointy shoulders.
I'm considering leaving out the shoulder detail, since it's an oddity in the first place, no one cares, and it will look off, but maybe I'm misunderstanding what the shoulder detail is. If I can figure it out, I'd like to do it.
I'm actually just a lurker and do not wear any j-fash, but this one has always fascinated me for some reason. I'd love to see some quality pics of it.
Can anyone tell me who this girl is cosplaying as?
When or where do you wear lolita?
I've recently started buying pieces for my wardrobe, I have two full coords, but I never know when to wear them...
I only have one friend and she would probably think it was super weird if I dressed up when we went out.
It feels weird to dress up when I'm going out with my family.
As for when, I never feel like there's a good opportunity.
Going shopping? Feels to casual. Going to a restaurant? Don't want to spill on my shit.
The only time I feel like the only time it would feel normal to me would be during a convention or something, where there's other people dressed up, but that obviously shouldn't be the only time to wear it..
I want to become a lolita, you say.
So become one, I reply.
What can I do to look like a lolita?
I have no words with which to reply to this.
You need a headdress, don't you? And a pannier.
Is this coordinate strange?
Is it not wrong for lolita?
Why do you want to do lolita?
Because it's trendy, because my friends do it...
If that's the case, you have no right to wear lolita.
If you just do what the others do, you will look like a lolita.
But I want you to think about something.
Who do you live for?
You think you want to be yourself, but you are afraid of isolation.
You yell that you want to be free, but you take comfort in following convention.
When you are praised for something you don't even feel comfortable with, are you really satisfied?
Girls who wear Vivienne Westwood but don't even know the Sex Pistols.
Even when wearing a jersey, a princess is a princess.
My lolita rules are mine alone.
So you are the only one who can find your own lolita rules.
My god and your god are different, aren't they?
There are angels who wear elegant dresses and play tamborines,
But there are also angels wearing armor and carrying swords whose job it is to fight.
I can't answer your question.
But there are a lot of hints all around you.
You just haven't noticed yet.
What you feel is right is your answer.
Sew frills onto the hem of your heart!
Put a tiara on top of your soul!

Fucking hell, I just want to be pretty for pictures.
Don't stress over it, anon! I didn't know anything about make-up until about two years ago. It just takes practice and patience. Don't try to start off with something elaborate or you're just going to set yourself up for failure.
Last one in auto sage and can't find a new in in the catalogue.
Without the veil/peignoir hybrid and the strange silver thing, the headdress would look pretty cute. This coord needs to be scrapped, though. Even the slightest bit of poor would offer a bit of improvement, and that top needs to get out.
