So many designs on their homepage. Some look really great. Thinking of buying...but...

I've heard lots of negative things about other Chinese-based lolita "copy" brands but what about Fanplusfriend?

Poorly constructed garments, crap quality, replicas galore, can't make custom pieces to fit people properly, also sell costume junk (although that's what their "lolita" stuff looks like)

A few weeks back, I made a thread about bad things cosplayers do. It went a bit out of scope since there are so many different types of cosplayers.

This time, lets focus on convention cosplayers, just there for the experience, not participating in costume contests or trying to become web famous.

What are the things these cosplayers do that bother you? What are these poor costume construction mistakes that you wish people would stop doing? Have you yourself ever made a poor costume construction choice and just wore it anyways?

Here's another meaningless poll just for fun!

Don't really think it's fair to have these sorts of threads about, as you said, "convention cosplayers." If they're not competing in contests or for fame, they're just doing this for fun and love of the characters, and who's to judge that?

This is like one of those /v/ threads where they complain about "casuals", isn't it?
>>
>>9051175
Not really the intent. Most people who do their first cosplay lack knowledge and don't do things the right way, or try to look for a cheap/easy shortcut. It's interesting to hear people vent about things they see when they know a much better way to do certain costuming effects.

A good example is a friend of mine did a My Little Pony cosplay and everyone was amazed at how good her 2-toned tail looked. People were trying to use yarn, felt or things like that to construct tails. She just rolled up a hair extension and attached two clip extensions for the 2-tone.

But also I know there's a lot of people that just like to vent about the things they don't like seeing at conventions, so if you want, you can do that as well.

Cosplay was for the most part cool, but I'm having trouble comprehending why that Sylvanas in the really ill-fitting cosplay won an award. It looked like she was wearing a cosplay made for a friend 6 sizes smaller. Gross.

Post your Undertale cosplay pics and projects in this containment board.

After Fancy Toriel (and her knock-off!), pic related is the second most stupid thing I've seen in recent Undertale cosplay stuff. Feel free to prove me wrong and post even more dumb shit.

Also, MCM-anon, post your pics here.

I've been meaning to ask, does anyone know the maker of this sculpt? Saved it several threads ago, saw it in my folder again today. I can't find her tumblr anymore via Image Search, and I'm just curious if she ever made it into a mask.

Didn't see a wig thread in the catalog, so here's a new one.

Pic related, is there any other good source for lacefront short wig besides Arda?
I am not in US or Europe so I wanna check my other options before committing with the expensive shipping.

Wigisfashion have good lace fronts, though the caps of their wigs + hairline is occasionally a bit oddly shaped.
Color.salon on ebay are pretty good for natural wig colours.

Speaking of lace front wigs.

Apparently epic cosplay has a sister site called posh posh wigs that sells lace front wigs. Though the selection is just a couple styles atm.

I'm wondering if they ship out of the same warehouse since posh posh says they're located in socal too.

Um, is cosplay-laurawu still trustworthy? Haven't bought from them in a while and I remember others having good experience with them, but their ranking seem to have tanked for some reason?

What is the best mascot costume you've seen?

I wish to make mascot costumes but I don't know where to start. Most people seem to kind of wing it with the shapes of the foam and then stretch the fabric and hot glue it all together.

Are there any tutorials or patterns that people follow for this type of work? I watched this which was helpful but I can't find much more on this subject

Due to some unusual circumstances, I'm currently living in a partially-renovated house with my dad and his fiancé.

His fiancé is a very sweet lady who is very thrifty. She makes all her own clothes and and will usually find a practical use for something, rather than throw it out (i.e recycling old bottles and jars to pot plants).

I had a Baby The Stars Shine Bright Strawberry and Cherry Ruffle jumperskirt that I didn't wear anymore, so I was planning to sell it. From memory, it cost about $400.

I put it out in the main room next to a pile of clothes I planned to donate to Good Sammies, so I'd remember to take photos of it for the sale. I then went away for a week to visit my grandparents

When I came back, I noticed the pile of clothes had disappeared. Cool, my dad and/or his fiancé had donated them for me. But wait... Where was the jumperskirt?

It was then that I saw the sight portrayed in the uploaded. My dress had been cut up to to make an ironing board cover and a tablecloth. I don't know where the rest of the material is.

It appeared that my dad's fiancé had assumed the jumperskirt was part of the donation pile, and thought there was no harm in 'recycling' it for her own uses. In her efforts to pretty up the concrete-y wasteland of a house, she had unknowingly destroyed an expensive brand dress.

Literally the only thing I could do in that moment was stare blankly. I can't even be mad at her, she had no idea.

So now I have a BTSSB ironing board and table cloth.

I don't know why I've never seen lolitas in eastern Europe (Poland, Ukraine, Hungary...). Maybe it's because in that part of Europe religion plays a big role in culture. I've only seen lolitas in talk shows on TV (shown as freaks obviously).

I couldn't find it in the archive or catalog, but it seems it is time once again for a Historic Cosplay/Costumng Thread. Starting off with the first recorded costume, Forrest J. Ackerman in a "futuristicostume" made by his then girlfriend and worn to the first WorldCon in 1939. Just in case anyone was getting misinformation that costuming/cosplay started in the 1990's or something....

This print in this color is quite popular, but sadly not in the OP cut. Maybe start around $150?
