I'm intrigued in what you all think makes for a good cosplay group which isn't the standard bunnies etc.
I wanted to do a cosplay group with some friends where we all dress up as characters from popular mobile games and wondered whether you'd appreciate it?

Let me know you're quirky ideas or pet peeves about groups!

pet peeve: when doing a bunny suit group and it's super obvious nobody used the same pattern. playboy bunnies have the exact same suit - these girls are all wearing different necklines, different leg openings, it looks like a fucking mess.

Would a Darkest Dungeon group see any kind of recognition at a con?

We've made costumes and done cloth-to-costume sewing before for parties and the like but not a full on cosplay, Darkest Dungeon is something we all enjoy and the minimalist designs seem to be perfect for novices at work.
>>
The only time I've ever done a cosplay group I was so desperate to do it I made every single costume myself and just made my friends wear them. It was stressful and drama inducing and some of my friends didn't even like the source content/know the characters I made them. 4/10 overall because I trust my craftsmanship and we got some nice photos.

Fyi: this is not an ita thread, and yes, I know lolita has rules. I just like to see something else every now and then.

Discuss Western Indie Brands, rank them all from the best to naming & shaming the worst! What have been your experience with Western Indie brands? Do you find they're a better alternative to Bodyline/Taobao? Which Indie brands would you say are comparable to Brand quality?

>WESTERN indie brands only please, as I feel they're distinct enough from Korean/Chinese Indie brands to warrant their own thread.

>What have been your experience with Western Indie brands?
I have a Mullberry Chronicles dress, a dress from Lady Sloth, and a skirt from Elegy. I'm also waiting on a dress from Peppermint Fox

> Do you find they're a better alternative to Bodyline/Taobao?
Bodyline yes. Taobao it depends. They're all definitely more expensive than bodyline or taobao so it's not something I would recommend to newbies. I find that sometimes the construction is about the same as good taobao.
> Which Indie brands would you say are comparable to Brand quality?
I don't find any of them to be comparable to brand quality. Mostly because their handmade so more prone to mistakes usually. I would put Lady Sloth and Elegy as least brand like in quality. Elegy also gets points docked because she takes an eternity to ship.

What are some reasons a lolita gets banned from their Comm?

It's about to happen for me again...for the second time.

>>9552079
Ok but what did you do
>>
>>9552079
Yeah, I need details
>>
>>9552079
Reasons I've seen for getting banned:
-stalking
-massive amounts of shit stirring
-stealing
-bullying
-assault/threatening assault

All of these require proof most of the time. Whether caps, police report, or if there were witnesses.

Looking for coord inspo with skirts!
I'll dump the few that I have.

I think I'm in love with someone, and I shouldn't be.
I don't even know them.
But I'll probably never see them again.

So in November 2015 I ordered an NCR ranger cosplay from a guy named JayCosplay.

He seemed pretty prominent, posts a lot of pictures of props he makes, has a decent number of followers on YouTube and Instagram and Facebook, has won a couple of awards for cosplay making and at the time he was the only one offering commissions for NCR ranger cosplays.

I paid him $800 and he told me that he would have it shipped by March of 2016. In April 2016 he told me he was moving his workshop location and it would cause some delays, in November 2016 he said he had a big backlog and there would be another delay. He seemed very professional and I can't find anything else online from anyone one else who has ordered from him and not received what they commissioned, but since November I've been trying to contact him atleast once a month on all of his social media pages and he is just outright ignoring me. The guy is in the UK and I'm in the US so I was wondering if anyone else here had dealt with anything like this and had some suggestions on how to either get my commission or get a refund.

Had a problem with him but got a refund, I don't think he's sketch, but he definitely drags his feet. Just got my refund through PayPal tho
>>
How did you pay him?

I paid him through paypal. Which only gives you 90 days to ask for a refund.

Everyone I know is skipping and going to a different cosplay event. Even people that won badges from a previous con.

Skirts are not getting enough love from lolitas these days. Brands are not releasing them much. Why do lolitas hate them? It's sad.

Is the sugary carnival dress a replica?

Mecha Cosplay thread.

Guys, how do I make a decent, inexpensive overall good getter robo costume? Or is there a place where I can buy them?

choose one

>>9568469
This isn't true? EVA foam can be found for pretty cheap. Costumes in OP's pic look to be upholstery foam covered by fabric, which is pretty inexpensive as well. If the costume requires a support structure, half inch PVC is cheap and effective way to do it. Lighting is usually just a matter of a few LEDs and button cell batteries, not expensive either. Stilts can be made out of cheap insulation foam. The tools to work with these materials aren't gonna cost you an arm and a leg either.

Making a big costume out of sintra or worbla is probably a different story though.

To OP: your question is very broad. Want to make a mech? There's tutorials for exactly that online. Want to make a big mascot-style suit or something that otherwise uses upholstery foam? Look up fursuit tutorials. Want something generally robo-y? Just look up EVA foam tutorials.
>>
>>9570235
Well, I just want to make a getter robo costume, and general mecha stuff for the others to discuss.
However, I have no idea to start, hence I chose 4chan.

So what do you think? Has a US company finally figured out what we actually want?
