Momocon is next month at the Congress Center!
What are you plans? Who are you cosplaying/ what are your coords?
>Obligatory Trustfundcon-Censorshipcon-Shitcon remark
I was going to do Sakuyamon from Digimon but I don't think I have enough time to do an armor build so I may push it off until D*Con. Leaning towards doing a Raven variant.
What are you doing OP?
Nice! Id love to see what you look like.
Im doing a full power armor cosplay for DragCon as well that wont be ready for Momo. I have the helmet all done but nothing else.
Anyways, I may do a Fallout raider with my power armor helmet or try to throw together a Diamond Dogs soldier cosplay in time.
Last year I had a great time with some Anons doing a Hotline Miami cosplay group with me, hopefully I find some equally as cool people
I am getting involved in my local goth scene and want to bring my love of Japanese gothic/visual kei white-face makeup with me. Post inspo, tutorials, and tips! Selfposts are fine too
Keep them cgl related

>Don't want to book shit as a photog because I still owe people photos from ages ago
Oh well, I guess it'll just be a room party Fanime.
So I just read that Super Cosplay Cafe isn't attending Anime St. Louis anymore and posted this long all of text to their fb page. Rather than just peacing out and saying thanks for having us they wrote a long shitty post about how they dislike LGBTQ and black cosplayers. Like in 2016 why are we still dealing with shit like this? The panels had nothing to do with them yet they got pissed enough to leave and had the audacity to call people out about it. I'm glad they're leaving, cons are negative enough without shit like this happening.
I'm on their side. I'm fucking tired of all the goddamn special snowflakes wanting their own play pen. At least be honest and say you want segregation again.
Adult shit is fine though, I'd say keep it for later at night, but as long as there is plenty of other shit to do, who cares.

I can't find much information on raised detailing with sintra, but I seem to be having some troubles with my Silas cosplay for Fire Emblem: Fates/if. This is also my first time working with the material and I picked a difficult project for my first time but luckily it's working out, failing a lot but learning a lot.
Does brand of sintra matter? I seem to overheat/curl often on small detailing bits, could be that I'm impatient or my heat gun is disturbing heat unevenly (using low settings) I also seem to have problems getting it flush to the base piece
I also see that people glue the detailed bits first before forming, but I have a lot of curves in the armor so I wanted to avoid that since the diameter/length would change so I form then add the detialed bits and form on top of it.
How do you fill the seams for small detailed parts? I know bondo works well for big seams (eg. darts) but for small parts can I use bondo as well too? I'm not sure how well it can apply to small cracks. I've heard spot putty can work well from what I've researched online
I posted my progress pics on imgur in the following link

Any lolitas or LARPers at WGT this year?

Let's talk about things you love in lolita fashion and and lolita things that makes you feel warm inside.
(Will post mine tomorrow. I am super tired but i wanted to have a lovely thread to wake up to. Love you /cgl/)
when kids ask me if I am a princess. it makes me really happy to see them look so excited and in awe just from seeing a "real life princess."
the fact my clothing can make others happy like that makes me happy, like I'm doing my part to spread smiles
I know it's cheesy bullshit but I really like that about Lolita

I've been trying to find those (pic) cat-ear necklace frames (just the frame, without the picture and clear cabochon) for diy purposes, using a lot of different keywords from other similar listings on taobao and google tr, but to no avail. Does anyone know a better term to find necklace frames (I don't think I'm even using the right English word)? Or if anyone finds them while looking for their stuff, please link me.
Can someone suggest the best seller of the "Sore wa Bokutachi no Kiseki" cosplays from Love Live?
Whatever one that looks the best.
Has there ever been a good con rave? Are they always just doomed to be a mess?
What makes a good con rave?
I usually show up with a few drinks already in me, make myself look like an idiot on the dance floor, and leave.
In all seriousness, what am I supposed to expect at a con rave? Like music wise? Sure, something j-related, but what in particiular? When I hear the word rave, I still think of the glorious 90ies, when techno and its consortia were popular.
