Most of these are pretty common problems so I feel bad complaining, but the whole thing is making me feel really tense and irritable, especially with being too busy/broke to wear lolita to cheer myself up.

It's Summer and this year in particular is supposed to be abnormally hellishly hot, at least in North America. Thanks, Bill Nye.

If you plan on cosplaying any cons this summer you could literally die from the heat if you are not careful.

That's why this thread is here! To spread awareness and information on how to not collapse from heat exhaustion while wearing 50 lbs of foam and metal in the sun!

Oh and by the way you should totally buy Cool Shirt(tm)! (only $420.69)
>>
Here's some tips I've gathered from reading and talking to other cosplayers. Luckily America has been at war in the desert for years and a lot of research has gone into keeping cool in the heat.

Make sure to pay attention to the weather forecasts. Knowing ahead of time can help you adapt accordingly.

If you have a bulky hot costume then get a hotel room as close to the con as possible. Not only will this cut down on the time you spend outside in it but it also means you can get to a cold shower quickly if you need one. Cold showers are great ways to cool off if you feel yourself overheating.

Those instant ice packs are great in emergencies but you need to know how to use them. You radiate most of your heat from your hands and feet, even if your face and head may feel hotter. If you feel yourself getting too hot, ice packs can be applied to your hands and forearms but make sure not to just hold them in place. Cooling your palms with the ice back can serve to just constrict the blood flow to that area. It'll feel cold but won't do much to cool the blood reaching the parts of your body that need it. Rub them slowly along the palms and backs of your hands and the underside of your forearms.

Actually I was going to suggest making your own. They're just vinyl tubing sewn into a spandex t-shirt.

Just say you were hacked. Nobody will believe that either, but you sound slightly less shortsighted and stupid.

How do I make myself a WWII outfit? I'm willing to pay up to $120 (gun not included). Everything I find is either a general or an officer or just plain overalls. I'm not worried about all the accessories such as a knife, binoculars, water can, and such. Either a backpack or a couple of ammo belts is alright.

I live around Philadelphia if that's important.

I didn't see a brolita thread, so I decided to make one. I don't even know where the hell to start. Where does a brolita buy clothes that fit them right?

Like any other lolita would. AP, Baby, Meta, IW, etc.

>Where does a brolita buy clothes that fit them right?
take your measurements and check them against brand measurements. see if you will fit. if not, look into indie brands that offer either a wider range of sizes, or custom sizes.

additionally, there is no issue a man has fitting into brand that a woman does not also have. rather than research clothes that fit men, target your specific issues: flat chest, tallness, wideness, etc. there are flat, tall, and large lolitas that are also female, and you will find many resources that way.
>>
Toabao brands and bodyline have larger sizes that you could try first without buying the more expensive brand. You could try replicas, too, but I personally don't like the thought of replica.

i know this has probablt been asked before many times but how long does it usually take for Vograce to produce the samples and finished charms? i'm currently waiting on mine (just confirmed the outlines few days ago) and i'm just being impatient (and also bit worried since i need them for the second weekend of June, i got the fastest shipping and all but still kinda worried haha).
>>
>>9022652
average for the US seems to be about a month from sending off files to the package arriving, give or take a week.

Not sure about here in Canada and other countries but I'd assume the same
>>
>>9022652
The largest order I've made so far has been for 175 charms, but every time it's been under three weeks from initial email to receive the package of charms.

New thread, because the old one didn't went so well.

>how and when did you find out about gyaru?
for me it has been around 2009/2010 when a random ganguro video popped up in the youtube side bar

>what is the thing you struggle with the most?
since I've mastered the nose contour I'd say my hair, I usually just wear it straight down, in a dango or twin tails. I'm really untalented if it comes to hair I guess

>fav mag?
forever EGG followed by ageha...though egg is funnier.

>do you dance parapara?
I try, but I'm a failure at dancing

my fav routine is POISON

Will pay good for bitter, going price for brown and reasonable for pink. I'm really deperate. Please take my money so I won't get bitter and buy something else on impulse.

There's one for Lolita so why not cosplay?

Things that happen at conventions that you simply can't stand.

Personally I'm tired of the sea of deadpool you always see at conventions.
