Why isn't there a thread about this yet? Can I just not find it?
Anyone here going to enter?
What are your thoughts on using shape wear to help get the figure you want or need for cosplay/jfashion? Any particular products you'd recommend? Any horror stories?
If you have a big bust then a binder is pretty much necessary for most lolita dresses. Underworks has a really great one for ~$30 I think. I don't care if you use shapewear or not, I personally prefer it because it smooths everything out for both cosplay and lolita.
Anyone got some horrible experiences with photographers?
Not really horror but
>Cosplaying at local con
>signs everywhere stating rules, big sign in entry way of con
>Typical things of no real weapons, alcohol, drugs
>In game Hall just watching friends play game, guy standing off to the side with camera
>Figure he's just taking photos for the con, people playing games ect
>See him bend down, sifting through his bag
>Stealthy like a ninja, slowly pulls out a little bottle of whiskey and starts drinking before quickly putting it away
>Wat the fuk lol
>Turns to me with camera asking if he could get a photo of my costume, agree
>Takes the photo, goes on his separate ways
Just thought it was funny seeing someone sneak in alcohol and visibly drink it
Cammy cosplay was forced to cover up at a convention cause a random group of Smash Bros fans reported her to con ops for being too revealing. Was given the ultimatum of cover up or be removed from the con.
This is the future of conventions now, if you plan on doing any revealing cosplay at AX I'd suggest doing a photoshoot away from the convention as to avoid getting reported. I think this will become a big issue for small cons but too hard to control for large cons.
Cammy is pretty revealing but don't most cons have a age restriction like 14+ ? Plus fu for bringing your children to a cosplay convention. Cosplay is serious business not a fun carnival for children, duh
Windy summer days are coming and as a lot of us wear skirts but don't want to flash everyone, let's have a thread about bloomers and similar pieces (pic related). No matter if Lolita, Fairy Kei, Ouji or Larme, every style is welcome.
>Styles you use them for
>Favorite brands for bloomers
>Bloomer suggestions for tall people (asian brand ones love to be too small on average)
I've recently started using bloomers with pockets while wearing lolita. It might be a bit too awkward for keeping your phone in but it's a pretty safe place to keep IDs or credit cards, just make sure you don't take them out where the public can see you and be discreet about it.
What do you all recommend for shorter dresses? I wear shapewear from Uniqlo (pic related) but it goes down to mid-thigh. I don't wear many things shorter than that but when I slightly bend some shapewear peeks out from underneath.
I also seldom wear form-fitting dresses that benefit from shapewear so I feel I'm squeezing into something uncomfortable just for the sake of not flashing my undies.
Post the best Persona/Catherine/Atlus cosplay, selfposts welcome
Most guests have been announced, the panel list is out, and the cons only a few months away.
Panels shown so far are somewhat blah, the guests are boring and I might be in the minority about this but I hate the current venue.
I wish there was another large anime con in town to keep San Japan on it's toes and more interesting.
Can't seem to find the last one.

Does anyone know if Ecailles De Lune ( https://kinyo666.world.taobao.com/ ) is called something else by Chinese lolitas? I was trying to find some of their stuff on the taobao secondhand site, but searching "ecailles de lune" didn't bring anything up
Miss point anon here, the items have been sent to me so I should receive them soon.
asked me for a review of the shoes. I got them today(had to split the order because reasons), pic related is what they look like irl. Pretty comfy considering they were dirt cheap but make sure you go up a size. The only thing that caught me is the fact that it's not a true buckle fastener on the shoe, instead there is some sort of hook contraption that secures the buckle and strap together. I'll take pics of it later. Other than that though I'd definitely recommend them for the price I paid!
>Pays for order and shipping a week ago
>Buynosaur still hasn't shipped
>Send multiple e-mails and messages, apparently neither are being seen
>Absolutely need these items by the end of the month
I tried to be nice and try them out, and I get they're swamped, but how hard can it be to ship out a package and be done with it?
didn't see one, let's start it up.
Didn't see one in the catalog
To add to this, I'm pretty sure this girl is a scammer.
She's listed it on LM now for $300, but if you look on her page she originally bought the full jsk set (with socks and clip) for $280, and the dress has rips she does not mention.
Leaving her name so people don't buy from her.

It's Saturday where the parties at
New thread since the one old is saging faster than a MAGA in a safe space
Having a kick ass day 2 friends! Hope to see you guys tonight at 9pm! Gremlin D. Va, I have my battle.net for you tonight!
I'm only sorry the Cricket wireless IP range here is banned...
What panels are good?What are you cosplaying? Any secrets we should know about the con?
Remember drink water, eat actual food and don't get arrested.
Meet up at 8 tonight. Sea you gulls there!
>Sitting in the Opening Ceremony
>Terrible accoustics with the Dancing Dolls performance
>No dumb ass fuck staffer has yet to pass out glow sticks
I for sure know the rest of the con won't get better after this.
following my twitter feed and crying that I can't be there!
apparently artist alley didn't have AC for the longest while, a lot of people sold out of overwatch merch, boku no hero academia meetup was solid with the entire crew, and monmusume cosplays at the bookwalker booth was impressive
