Interested cosplay outsider with a question.
I agree with the logic of always wearing wigs.
And sure, not all wigs are terrible. However, I sort of feel like 99% of even "good" anime wigs just look like shit in person. Like, the character looks boss 2d with the style, but a person irl, even with a great cosplay, doesn't look cool in the same way. Accuracy to screen is fun, but is it just me who vastly prefers a "this is what the character would look like irl so the outfit is probably almost identical but the hair is just the irl equivalent of the stylized 2d hair" approach?
Is this an issue people talk about at all, is there terminology for this?
pic not all that related since I feel negatively even about good wigs.
I really don't understand what you're getting at. Unless the character has a super short/shaved cut in a natural color even a shitty wig will look better than no wig 99% of the time. Can you post a reference of a "good" wig you think looks like shit, because I honestly can't even imagine or comprehend your apparent perspective here.
Cosplayers will definitely think that a wig and accuracy to the actual character design would be the best way to go. Sure some may think like you and do "realistic" designs, but most prefer character accuracy
I'm not arguing for no wig, I'm more arguing that total character accuracy usually looks cringe.
Example would be like jjba Polnareff cosplayers who wear really tall wigs for accuracy. I think a more realistic high flat top would just look better, especially since in a case like that it's not like they're nailing the rest of the silhouette.
Post some feels. Keep 'em /cgl/ related. Let's not fuck this one up.

I think you should stay with your daughter, unless you have someone taking care of her. It really sucks for her
Bring her something from the con to make her feel better? And don't forget to visit her.

Discuss Maid and butler cafés in here!
Do you gulls have any preferred store to buy your uniforms from?
In an attempt to revive this dead thread.
What is everyone's opinions on the cafes that are local in their area? Where I'm from most cafes can barely start up, and the ones that are just cringe and terrible.

Not really lolitaesque but the wallpaper and chandelier are awesome.
I feel everyone should cosplay what they want, but feel some of this shit looks fucking goofy.
but this isn't done properly OP. The fabric is incorrect and throws off the rest of the outfit.
I'll throw in something unpopular: anthropomorphized costumes, in simpler words, taking a fully animal subject and turning it into a human/animal furry hybrid.
If it comes out poorly, you'll look cringey and a furry, and if it comes out well, you'll still look like a furry.
Post mashups you like, mashups you hate, or ones that genuinely leave you confused.
Pic related is Jessica Nigri's newest creation... "Necromancer Totoro." Thoughts?

I'm making a Fallout jacket for my brother for his birthday and this is the first time doing numbers on my own. They are made of fabric It looks horrible. (He loves it but I am not so much of a fan) I'm going to make two Fallout jumpsuits for the HUbby's and I first anniversary photoshoot and wondering how I would go about doing a better job on the numbers next time around.
The base is suiting material (Thicker and more pliable, but was recommended by a veteran seamstress) Since this was my first time making numbers like this I Used thick Cotton and Interfacing. I know they look shitty so I'm trying round two on the next jacket look a lot better thus asking help on what to do about the numbers next time. (I'm looking to make sure this fits him since he has a really long torso/arms before I make the next one.)
I have a jump suit pattern for the Fall out jumpsuits I'm making later on. I'm just having problems figuring out a better way for the numbers.
Gulls, I was wondering, is there anything you are obsessed about? Cosplay or lolita related? Or even outside?
I'm personally weirdly obsessed with lolitas i find cool. Nothing creepy in real life, or when i see them or whatever, i act totally normal and i'm shy anyway. But i just stalk them online sometimes a bit too much.
I'm worried I can't like somebody out of cosplay and think I may be too obsessed with fictional characters
I've had generally good looking/nice guys come up to me and tried dating them for a while but didn't feel even the slightest for them for what they felt for me
I've only ever had slight crushes on cosplayers (when in their cosplay) which worries me that I won't be able to have feelings for somebody out of cosplay...
I'm not sure how to describe this character obession other than Schediophilia and thought I was Asexual(?) up until i realized I only really liked cosplayers
Im so confused
I'm obsessed with drama in communities I have no part in.
I'm not into lolita or bjd but I read all the drama and secrets blogs and thrive on all the bullshit
I'm obsessed with catching people I know talking shit about other people on here. The best is when I can tell who they're talking about, and when they leak information that only they would know/bring up.
It's literally the only reason why I came here in the first place lol. I cap all of it, and I write little notes to help me remember later. It's meticulous, it's spiteful, but it's my guilty pleasure. I like having something to remind me not to be too naive and trusting with other lolitas.
What would go down in a sleazy reality TV show about lolitas with a similar format to Real Housewives?
>Lives in the South
> attends "local" anime conventions for 3years
>Panels suck and they're poorly ran
>Guests are people nobody knows or cares about
>Raves are shit
>Dealers room is the same vendors with same shit every year
>Every Cosplayer is a obese lesbian
I want to try Momocon, AWA, or Dragoncon (not all 3).
Ahahaha I live in a similar town with a similar situation. Even worse it's run by a college organization with shitty management and they are 100% convinced their ""convention"" is the shit. Trust me you'll have more fun at a real con. I usually drive up for all three mentioned every year.
It's a little bland but I have fun anyway. It's more entertaining to watch the college graduations/parties/weddings/whatever that also book out the building and the way they freak out whenever they catch so much as a glimpse of con weirdos
I have fun every year but desu it's weeby as shit. Some fun panels and good times abound. Management isn't tip top but I have more fun than momo at least. Last year was communication issues abound, lots of confusion and miscommunication between staff
24/7 party every time. Be warned, there are always massive crowds and everything is packed. However dcon is loads of good times. Most memorable convention to me, if only for the sheer volume of partying
And now just imagine you live in a country where every con is like that or even worse
