Haven't seen one yet and the conventions coming up relatively soon.
General discussion thread for Project A-Kon
I think we haven't had a thread mainly because we've just been talking about any A-Kon stuff in the Texas general thread. But hell, that ones close to auto-sage, so why not! How about some fun questions to get the thread rolling?
>How fucked are you with you cosplay as we approach the "not quite panic mode but I kinda fucked up and put this off" one month out milestone?
>How much do you plan to drink this year?
>Do you think there being an actual tea party and j-fashion track is going to be fun or a hot mess?
>Have they improved their guest selection?
>What do you make of the cosplay contest upping the quality of their rules?
>How much are your thighs looking forward to walking back and forth across the Anatole several times a day?
I'm planning on drinking a lot. I haven't looked at the guest thread too much but I'm excited for Steam Powered Giraffe. Saw them at RealmsCon two years ago and it was pretty fun. Kinda want to hit the masquerade too, but I doubt the boyfriend will be up for it.

Brands/Models List (WIP):
Partial Scans List:
Video about Larme Magazine (annoying narrator alert):
Based off a thread on /c/, post an image reply to something with a corresponding theme/color/item/etc. ex: a picture of a lolita holding a drawing might be a reply to an actual drawing
I'll start off with a few so that everyone can see how it works
JapAniManga night is next weekend in Davos Switzerland.
Anyone from /cgl/ going to be there? Its my first time overseas and I am pretty nervous about it.
Can we have a cat/animal ear thread?
What do you think about the popular sellers and their prices?
Is there a good tutorial out there to make similar ears?
looks similar to my ears, if I were to actually put effort into them (idk why people buy mine so quickly). No sewing required. I'll see if I can find the tutorial I used, though, it was several years ago since I found it.
Though, I don't recommend hot glue at all. Use fabri-tac.
Old thread was autosaging
Looking forward to anything?
Who are you wearing?
Did you finish it yet?
Is there any chance we could get a lolita graphics thread going?
I just got a new computer and my external hard drive with all my graphics stuff on it is in another country.
Pictures or links to websites and lolita-esque or lolita appealing graphics are welcomed as well!
As OP I'll post what I have so far
Can we have a kimono thread? Seems like there hasn't been many around here lately.
Also, is anybody a member of IG on facebook? Usually the kimono community has very little drama, but there has been a lot lately. What do you think about it?
I'll dump some stuff. Been really into hakama lately.

That was some fucking good weekend. Embassy is the GOAT hotel. That video/arcade room too, fucking amazing. Acen just keeps getting better and better each year.
Old thread a kill >>9010353
Discuss new releases, ILD plans, bloodbath woes, etc. How far ahead do you plan your coords? Do you like to buy new main pieces for them?
Please keep it EGL related!
Going to ask my question again. Where is the cheapest place for secondhand shopping if I have a PayPal?
It seems quite noobish, but I only just turned 18 a few months ago so before then I was forced to use my parents PayPal for purchases, and they did not want me to buy secondhand as they thought it was too expensive. So I was forced to only buy directly from brands or from people within my comm.
I didn't like to look at auction sites or international secondhand stores as it was unobtainable, but now I can. Ive bought from closet child already but feel as though there is surely somewhere cheaper. I'm asking here rather than looking it up (which I have done) because sometimes there are hidden costs that wouldn't show up when you look directly at a store.
I don't buy new main pieces for coords, I buy them because I like them. I can plan out coords up to a month in advance, but often change on the day. It's a fashion, not a costume, so I try to work with what I have instead of spending a lot on pieces for specific outfits for specific events.
If you want to find something cheap, there isn't really any other option than just keeping an eye out for good deals.
I'm not even sure what you mean by something cheaper.. second hand stores that have prices even lower than CC? It all depends on the individual pieces
Post about your local comms!
Be careful when talking about people, since we're not supposed to single anyone out specifically anymore. We don't want the thread to be deleted suddenly.
Any cool upcoming meets?
What do you love or hate about your comm?
What concrit would you have for your comm?
These are just some sample starter topics.

>How to order from Vograce
I tabled at a first year con last year and it was so so dead I barely broke even.
I got a free table there this year from the art contest but I still can't shake the bad feeling I have about it as I prepare. Have any of you felt something like a "let's get this over with" about a con before?
Under the Sea is coming up at the weekend, who's waiting for things to arrive in the post? What are you expecting to see? Got any tourist plans for being in Amsterdam?
I still havent finished planning either of my coords, looks like it's going to be 20-25 degrees Celsius though so I'm glad I don't need to pack too many layers
I'll head off to Amsterdam tomorrow and stay there for a week. I planned a museum tour and also a day in s Hertogenbosch to visit the Bosch exhibit. Apart from that I'm prepared to blow all my money on the vendors at the event.
My coords are already planned but I fear I'm going to be underdressed as I'm neither very OTT nor sticking to the theme. I'm expecting that mermaid coords and pirates will dominate at the event.
Ugh, I've been to Amsterdam 4 times and keep just missing these events becausenI live under a rock, though I did go in full Lolita every day last time. How much are tickets and where do you usually book your accommodation?
Dokomi just ended and no thread to post?
Didn't want to make one for the Dokomi alone, so German General but feel free to share thoughts about your experience!
> better than least year?
> was the big vendors hall worth it?
> thoughts on AA?
> cosplay thoughts?
> post pics
> also German General
too big, too long queues, too crowded
shit weather, though that's not the orga's fault
eurocosplay skits were mostly disappointing, the winner did good, though
cosplay guests were cool but it seems no one ever told them they were holding a workshop
I am curious what other anons say about Dokomi. First and last time I was on Dokomi, tickets were quite cheap for one day (~10€), but it was still rather boring. Since I moved to the Ruhr area, I was planning to give Dokomi and cons another chance, but their prices for tickets were raised by alot. All I heard from people I know who went there was that they grew alot in size and number of vendors. But is that all? I don't want to spend that much money just to hang around and see what is going on there.
Or to put it this way: Are cons just a thing for people who do know what they want to do there and not for more random curious folks?
>> also German General
Are german anons just not interested/too lazy to answer or are there really just a few on this board? The last "active" thread barely reached 50 replies, last one went down without any answer at all.
Woran hakt's den nun Anons? Bei den Holländern ist dagegen immer ordentlich was los.
