Alright guys, it's been a while since the last thread, and I just printed a Cosplay ID card for a friend today and figured I might extend my card making services to you guys, as well as getting the new ID's back on track.

The design is still a work in progress. We need to come to a better consensus until I begin mass producing them.

Derpy Choco anon, because LM is terrible for sending pics.
Back has partial shirring, a zipper, and corset lacing. Waist goes up to 34". Only wore it once for a cgl meetup. It's printed on spoonflowers cotton sateen so it has a decent weight to it.

Iberanime is finally over. What did you think of the new venue? Was it worth it? Did you get to meet Reika? Tell me everything

First time there, had no cosplay or anything, first experience at a con.

Tbh cosplayers seemed to be having fun in groups so I kind of got curious about the whole cosplaying thing and I am now more interested and I may cosplay next time.

I bought some cool stuff and tried to get some photos, that was pretty much it (I also enjoyed playing in some arcades)

I feel like if you dont go with a group of friends it is pretty shitty, it doesnt help that my group of friends only wanted to buy merchandise and gtfo.
>>
>>8999421
If your friends only go to cons to buy merchandise, they made a really crap deal. Ticket price + overpriced merchandise (which a lot of it is bootleg/fakes), might as well have stayed home and gotten a bunch of official merch online.
Glad you enjoyed your first Iber tho, do cosplay when you get the chance, it is quite fun, especially in groups.
>>
>>8998733
The new venue was ok I guess, but the fact that there were so many people didn't help at all, and apparently it rained inside if I heard correctly.

By request, link to Wonderfinch dramu from previous thread: >>9040054
>>
>>9040598
Just read this and wanted to add I really don't buy the drama, especially trying to drag it into this new thread suspiciously. If someone has an issue with a seller, e-fame or not, just leave them poor feedback or make some blog post somewhere leaving a review. I bet no such thing with magically manifest.

I once saw a posing picture dump in here but didn't save it. Does someone have the link? Other databases with great posing pictures would be nice too.

yeah but mainly because i won a free badge, otherwise i probably wouldn't every year so far has felt more like a gathering rather then a con. I might not bother cosplaying.
>>
Yeah. I'm hosting a JoJo panel there. Will probably go as Oldseph since Richard Epcar will be there.
>>
>>9035858
This is my first time going, and it looks so small that I'm expecting it to be more like a Lottle Tokyo meet-up. I'm mainly going to see the animators panel.

I'm getting into prop making, what props would you love to have anything goes

Is there a way to color steel like this?
Working on a nazgul cosplay, and caught between buying these and making my own out of sheet steel:
http://www.amazon.com/Legends-Steel-Riveted-Gauntlets-Hand/dp/B00FI1EY8K/ref=sr_1_1?s=hi&ie=UTF8&qid=1465258837&sr=1-1&keywords=steel+gauntlets
(Will probably end up doing both) and I'll have to do it either way.

PS. I'm aware the gauntlets I linked don't have a glove attached yet
PPS. If anyone knows where I can get a decent cloak, share to save a life

hey matt

>>9042759
If you just leave shiny steel out where everyone can touch it and spread their skin oils all over it; it will oxidize to a dark steel color naturally.

You can also do what the Japanese did and mix piss with sawdust and throw your steel in there.

Shitting on a cosplayer? Praising a cosplayer? Just wanna say something?
I just wanna see what happens in this thread desu, no other real purpose in making this.

there's a help thread you know
but idk, go through blonde characters and see if there's a casual outfit you can buy/make easily. i have a friend who has misato katsuragi's yellow top+shorts outfit as a backup if she can't get the other cosplay made in time.

The more fitting thread would be the suggestions thread, actually, but YOU must also participate and help others to get helped yourself.

Would you rather have:

1. A closer cosplay community with less normies and popularity chasing faggots but much worse cosplay quality in general

or

2. What we have now

1, I'm a shitty buyfag anyway so I really don't care about costume quality over community.

1.
Only antisocial fans or popularity chasing fucks would choose 2

How do you go about affording your cosplays? I just got into j-fashion and was so excited to find out about how cheap taobao was, but when I realized how much shipping was even with SS it gave me second thoughts. What do you anons do to afford your stuff?

Get a job, sell stuff or have rich parents. [spoiler]Or get a sugar daddy.[/spoiler]

>>9041214

I have a job but my mind is blown how people can afford $300 on just shipping for things. It's a turn off for someone financially sane.
