Any of you gulls already working on your cosplays?
How far have you gone for cosplay? Anything from losing weight/getting in shape to dyeing your hair or moding your body. What's the craziest change you've seen someone do to fit a character?
I work out on the reg now, mostly for health/functional reasons.
There is a relatively big part of me that wants to get fit to pull off muscular characters. Kamina/Simon is pretty realistic and not too lofty a goal. Maybe down the line, Mikisugi from KLK just to do the strip and whisper NUDISTO BICHO to other KLK cosplayers.
Accidently got a xl instead of a large. I didnt have time to send it back because the con was the next day, so i had to cut half of the armour by the side and put velcro in it to give it a better fit. All in all it came out ok
We all have those wigs that just sit there unused. Let's change that. Post the wigs you have, get suggestions for characters that could work with them.
I received both of these wigs through trades. Not really sure what I can use them for.
>no male characters please
I have a wavy brown wig laying around, would love some simple casual/comfy sugestions
Maybe Makina from Macross Delta for the pink wig? Although it might be slightly too short for her.
You know the drill, unkindled ones.
Post pics of your favorite Sailor Moon cosplays and props
I think kasous wigs on test has a nice prestyled one :) also ayanamisatoru on eBay although they don't have as wide of an inventory anymore so not 100% if it's still on there, but worth giving a look!
Tell me about con love /cgl/
I want to live vicariouslythrough your stories.
I met a guy at a con. He was introduced to me from a good friend, and he started talking to me about anime I liked so we became friends. We talked a little bit online afterwards, and had a pretty good friendship.
A few years later, we both got out of relationships. I hadn't been feeling satisfied sexually in a while, so I finally worked up the courage to proposition him. We decided to be friends with benefits. Once we started hooking up, we became really close friends. And, as cliche as it sounds, we fell in love with each other.
We've been together for 2 years now. It's the best relationship either of us have been in. We enjoy cosplaying together and going to cons, he loves my clothing style and lolita. I feel like I could be with him forever.

>through some miracle someone recognizes him and points him in my direction
>he lives too far away to visit regularly so we start chatting as friends and having a good time
>I was still under 18 and he was in his early 20s so no romance
>fast forward a year to where I'm starting college

>I'm stuck in my apartment with my injuries for my birthday and ask him if he wants to come over
>"I don't think my girlfriend would like that"
>over a year of chatting and after 2 months of what was definitely flirting back and forth, he dropped on me that he had been with another girl the whole time
>we have a huge fight
>heartbroken, I stopped talking to him
>I eventually tried to reconcile months later only for him to start pulling the same flirting shit again
>I ask before anything else if he was still with that girl
I basically told him to fuck off and have avoided him ever since. I was fortunate not to bump into him at all this year.
Nun dresses thread!
MegaCon has ended, and it was a shitshow. Anyone else want to share their experiences? Also, anyone going to FandoMania in a couple of weeks?
Post pics of bad cosplay makeup.
Another worn request thread!
I'm looking for coords with IW's Mucha prints; any colorway, either release. I'm thinking about getting it and am looking for inspiration on how others have done the art nouveau theme (or haven't done it).
Dear Celine's college stripe short sleeve summer doll op
I have a friend of a friend who is interested romantically in me who is a Fairy-Kei / Lolita Fashion enthusiast.
I want to get her something to show my affection. Any ideas?
you can always search lacemarket for a purse or accessories or something, or a wig? depending on what kind of lolita she's into. make sure you take that into consideration tho, if you get the wrong style of lolita it's not a very usable gift.. also there are some good dresses on there for cheap if you know what she likes to wear
on the fairy kei side you can buy her a bunch of accessories off etsy (some cute ones there) or join a kawaii sales page on facebook and look for stuff. storenvy is a good place to look for fairy kei stuff too.
Hey so I'm planning my first Photoshoot at a con and I was wondering is it usually assumed that a professional photographer will be present? I've been to one before and it was just regular people taking pics and the only professional ones were from photographers that happened to walk by. Like I don't know what the norm is and if people will be all mad if there isn't one present? Thanks for the help. Pic unrelated
I've been running meets for 3 years, and no, pro photos are not expected. Just make sure to include everyone, be flexible, and work with whatever characters show up, and you'll be fine. Meetup pics are more for fun than showing off.
You have to contact one. You should have a dedicated photographer. preferably one you've paid. Just ask what their fee is and how many people. Shooting 3-4 people is chaos enough, throw in 30 and forget it
As a photographer I don't go to gatherings anymore because it's a cluster fuck as the other poster hinted at (and they aren't worth much artistically). There will always be a random taking photos do you could try asking one of them. If you've got any friends willing to help who also have a decent camera ask them too because you can bug them for the photos
How does one go about becoming a good lolita vlogger? What are some dos/don'ts and what kinds of videos do you love or hate? How do you feel about the more popular vloggers (like Deerstalker, Lor, Peachie, etc) and what sort of things do you wish there were more of in Lolita related videos?
I hate any kind of "lolita " video where they aren't wearing lolita! Like the fuck is that shit? People doing un boxings or rant videos and they are wearing fucking pjs. I came here for lolita goddammit. Updating consistently is also super important and it helps to have a cute house.
>high quality video (1080)
>high quality mic
>simple music in the bg
>good voice overs
>neat, simple bg
>wear the clothes
>fucking music box music
>or loud, complex music
>have vids longer than ~5 mins until you get popular
>single shot the whole video
>lolita transformation - seen one, seen em all
>messy, overly crowded bg
Please note, all of the above are my personal preferences and what I've seen be successful.
I wish there were more classic and gothic lolita vloggers. Obviously, if you're not, you're not.
I agree with pretty much everything you said except the lolita transformations. It's nice way to show people how you get ready and you could even make it a makeup tutorial based on the coord you're wearing. I would probably avoid using the word transformation if I was to make videos though.
People like to watch make up and get ready videos so I think it's a good way to get more people interested in your channel while you're also doing other things.
