David Vincent's voice acting panel was complete bullshit today at Anime Austin due to his failed attempt to not be biased, he chose the woman (who claimed to be a mother) to do the picking for her and she chose a literal pedophile to come on stage.

No offense to David Vincent, but PLEASE choose your volunteers yourself dude.

Also Anime Austin and Anime Overload was the same con. If you didn't go, you didn't miss much.

Also if you're good at smash, just go the anime cons for the free money, I swear to god if another low ranking texas smasher wins more than $50 at an anime convention tournament again, I'm going to break the consoles before the event.

Any good cosplay?

Sup /cgl/ cosplay newfag here. This will be my year going to a convention and after taking a bunch of pictures of cosplayers, I want to give it a spin for myself. I am far too unskilled with any form of sewing or crafting and a con I plan on attending is coming up in a couple of months, so would any of you happen to know of someone who is CURRENTLY open to a cosplay commission that can be completed and shipped before the end of August? I was hoping to request a samurai 2hu, or perhaps if they're experienced enough with armor crafting; the Firelink armor set from Dark Souls 3. If any estimates on prices based off of the difficulty can be inferred, that would be appreciated as well.

...dude. Even China couldn't pull it off that fast. Please at least just google shit before you ask.

Also what's your price range. I'm going to guess you're going to have some sticker shock.

>How long have you been in lolita?
I've been into it since I was a junior in high school (4 years) but I've only been wearing it for less than a year.
>How many main pieces do you have?
Two main pieces right now
>How much brand vs offbrand?
All of my things are bodyline right now
>What styles do you mostly own?
Sweet which is a weird thing since I'm goth and punk when I'm in normie clothes
>>
>How long have you been in lolita?
Heard about it in 2008, only got the financial situation to start seriously buying pieces in 2013
>How many main pieces do you have?
6 ops, 20 jsks and 10 skirts
>How much brand vs offbrand?
75% brand, most of them old school baby. Offbrand is evenly split between taobao and handmade
>What styles do you mostly own?
Gothic and sweet in black colourways

What do you mean by this?

>How long have you been in lolita?
>How many main pieces do you have?
Five main pieces - including one I'm currently trying to sell right now, one skirt, six blouses, and three shoes.
>How much brand vs offbrand?
It's mainly my main pieces that I try to keep strictly lolita brand (AATP, Bodyline, etc); I have two offbrand blouses; and I have one pair of offbrand shoes. All the other things I use for lolita - like headwear, accessories, and legwear - are mainly offbrand.
>What styles do you mostly own?
Gothic, classic, mainly black items (except for blouses).
>What would your ideal number be?
Someday I'd like to get to 15 main pieces and blouses, enough to where I could wear lolita at least once a month. My wardrobe is still pretty small.

It's been going on for years now but what exactly is this fashion called and what classifies it?

It's tumblr "aesthetic" matched with pastel goth , general "kawaii fashion" and american apparel tennis skirts with anime/japanese references to everything.

Shit thread but legitimate question. Trying to consolidate what this scene even is.

My first con was three years ago so I'm relatively new to the scene and I'm a poorfag who doesn't live especially close to any cons so I don't get to go to many each year but my first con was honestly one of the if not the singular best experience of my life, I was so nervous in the weeks leading up to it because I was working on my first cosplay and I didn't know exactly what to expect since the only things I had to base what a con was like was hearsay and convention music videos i was obsessed with back in like 2009 and I thought it might not live up to my expectations. I ended up going in a shitty AoT cosplay with an untrimmed wig, bad makeup and all but people still recognized me and asked for my picture. I was so surprised with how friendly everyone was and how positive the environment felt. I was so enchanted by everything that I ended up missing the events that I had originally chosen to go to the con for. I look forward to every con so much even if there aren't any guests or panels I'm interested in because I love the feeling.

I think that with every community there's always going to be a positive side and a negative side and there's no real way to escape that so you have to make an effort to appreciate the positive side and do what you can to improve the negative side in addition to keeping it as something that will effect you minimally, if that makes sense? I love cosplaying and I love conventions so it always makes me sad when people leave the community or anything, especially when it's based on things that don't directly effect the person, like glamour models for example.

I'm sorry this was very long and rambly but I hope my points come across.

Anyone on /cgl/ working on a costume? I'd love to see some nice helmet and armor work.

Other varieties of costume also welcome.

Is the love of lolita slowly dying?
Cheap Brand easy to buy secondhand. No more blood bath sell outs. No more drama. No one posting online or caring anymore it seems.

I would say it's the opposite. More and more people are aware of it and getting into it.

AP increased their stock and are re-releasing more so there are less blood bath sell outs and thats great. They sucked. Why would you want to go back to that? Also there is a new release every week and I don't think even the rich lolitas care to keep up with that. There are more dresses available and it's amazing.

A lot of us are older and really just don't give a shit about drama. Again, it's kind of better that way. I'll leave that to immature HS mentality girls.

No one posting or caring online? What? I don't know where you got that from.

Also it's summer and in my experience the number of meets significantly decreases due to the heat, and people going on vacation, etc.

Just because lolita is different now, doesn't mean that the shitty old ways are great.

Jealous of people that can afford Lolita or brand?
Too lazy to get a better job or save money so they just complain thinking that'll do something?
Not sure exactly but that's my thought.

Sticking to groups that are RL meet-up centered and to places where your real name and photos are looked up helps avoid them. So do good meet guidelines that require actual coordinates after a couple of meets. They usually drop out sooner in these places. I'm sure the threads here are full of bitter poor fats criticizing and even many lolita pretenders, you can tell this easily by many of the replies and posts.

So there is a thread on overrated cosplay photographers so how about one for really good photographers/inspo especially con photography. Personally, I'm a macro nature photographer and tend to avoid portraiture due to being an awkward potato with people but cosplay photography seems like it would be pretty fun at cons but can hall photos ever look really good? How do people get around the location and equipment limitations ect?
