Who is fucking ready?
Sherlock Holmes has found his way into lolita-edition
this opens the door for more doctor who bullshit and I am not happy about it
Last thread is autosaging.
Are you cosplaying today? Did you already head home?
Couldn't get off for Sunday so I left last night.
This custom signature I got from the studio Trigger people is why I will never go back to shitty ACEN. They never get guests even half as interesting or relevant.
Posting my salt from the last thread, since it's dying.
Sorry again for how loud my voice is in the recording, but holy hell. I posted this nonsense in the con facebook, and I'm curious as to how they'll respond. The way they've defended their staff harassment is flimsy as it is....
Which one would you like to accompany you at a con?
Share your feels. Be sure to keep them cgl related.
Previous thread >>9089129
I went to my first con without my cosfam and ended up going home after just five hours. I spent seven and a half hours driving!
Two homeless guys hugged me outside the parking garage while the attendant just stared.
Just sold my doll and I am deciding if should sell my other one. I also want to go through my Lolita closet and sell any duplicate prints I have. I don't know why im still so attached to these stuff and just have second thoughts once I decide to sell them. As a collector, I would love to give them to people who will enjoy them more than I do but I also want my stuff with her
Not one in the catalogue, so how about a wtf sales/bad homemade thread?
Starting off with these "bridal converse"!
Does anyone else think Cosplay Music Videos are some hyper cringy bullshit? Its usually bad music as well, 60% of the time its really terrible EDM and half the cosplayers are girls cosplaying League of Legends.
Most CMV's are excuses for perverted second rate photographers trying to get girls to let him film them.
Who else feels this?
CMVs where the camera moves more than the cosplayers are kinda dull
At least have them dance to a song or something
What kind of glasses do you girls think are the best options for classic & gothic lolita?
And with this I do mean prescription glasses. Wearing clear glasses when you don't need them is like faking a disability for attention.
For the sort of costume approach that seems the most popular, circular lenses, whether tiny or huge.
If you wanted to look good, I'd go with oval or rounded rectangular, depending on your face, you know, things that look good anyway.
As for the normal glasses part, this girl looks great with normal frames that match the black of her clothes.
Last thread is in autosage.
Ask for help, advice, and give answers.
Should I just get a wig for every cosplay since my hairline is fucking my shit up?
Tryna do Nathan Drake, but I doubt I can get my hair to look right.
Regarding the costume, obviously only have the basic stuff right now, but I'm working on making the shoulder holster, and am wearing these clothes come rain or shine to give them a more worn in look. Also waiting on one of those watch straps that he's got. Still trying to get rid of that baby fat stuck on my face too.
Does anyone have a full image of the candy bars from Deus Ex? I want to print out the labels and cover up actual candy bars and pass them out as JC Denton.
New Menhera thread, other one seems to be autosaging!
Share those nightmares come true whether it's crazed stalkers or accidentally dumping your container of hemming pins into the carpet.
Well, have any of you goobers incorporated 3d printing into your costumes?
I'm considering buying one so I can build Enclave power armor from Fallout 2, but I'm worried the shoulder piece will be too big to make, even if split up.
well everything can be split up, you just need to put it back nicely. i wouldnt recommend printing full armor to be honest. i have used it for smaller things though. goggles,belt buckles, other props.
I'm going to my very first convention and would like tips on how to not seem so new
literally no one will notice/care that it's your first con so don't sweat it
1.) bring a cosplay repair kit if you'll be in cosplay
2.) don't forget to drink water and feed yourself; pack food if you want to minimize spending costs
3.) also get some sleep at some point
4.) download the scheduling app if there is one, otherwise
5.) if the map/guide is only on paper, take photos of the maps and panels you're interested in with your phone
6.) stay away from people that rub you as creepy or unsettling
7.) have a budget and try to stick to it
8.) don't ask cosplayers for photos if they're eating or actively busy with something else (if they're just talking to friends it's usually ok to ask though)
9.) if you want to go to a main event like the masquerade, line up early
10.) carry around a phone charger just in case
that's all i can think of off the top of my head, let me know if you have any other questions
so it seems acparadise got breached?
Post about lolita shoes here. Ex: Brand vs replica quality and all that jazz.
