Any tips on how to style a fur hood? The demos Ive found only talk about how to add fur to things. Or how to style fur in general?

I'm cosplaying Nina from FEif and I'm not sure what I want to do for the striped pants/leggings. I have some white and black striped leggings that I can dye so that the white instead is grey, but my only gripe is that I don't like how the stripes aren't continuous on leggings since you have to cut the striped fabric and the lines along the seam don't line up. I wanted to use striped tights instead, since the stripes are continuous, but the only true opaque black and white striped tights that I could I found have really wide stripes that I'm not a fan of. Another option I was considering was wearing those tights that have opaque black and translucent black stripes like in pic related, and wearing black or dark grey tights under that. What do you gulls think I should do?
>just make leggings using the striped fabric
>dye the opaque tights even though the stripes are really wide
>wear opaque tights under translucent striped tights
Sorry for the shitty edit.

Why does everyone who cosplay's as a hobby creates a facebook page to post their once or twice a year cosplay? Who's it for and what's the point?

Or worse people who make a patreon to fund their cosplay with nothing to offer their donors.

>Why does everyone who cosplay's as a hobby creates a facebook page to post their once or twice a year cosplay?
because all it takes is one person you know to make one, then two then suddenly its the must have thing

>Who's it for and what's the point?
People who make them very quickly loose interest and stop updating them.

that's certainly a variety

Prestige

I know it sounds like bullshit but the mere fact that someone has a donor seems to inflate their ego and what they view their status to be to that of a quasi-professional cosplayer, regardless of skill or popularity.

I'm running low on my It's Skin VC effector and I'm kind of curious about other vitamin c serums. Has anyone dropped this one for something better or should I just order another bottle of the same thing?
I've experienced good results with this serum lightening my PIH, which is basically the only reason I use it. My skin isn't sensitive but I'm prone to acne in my eyebrows and jawline and the PIH sticks around for so goddamn long if I don't treat it.

I plan on going to wdw in lolita a lot since I start working there in august, the tips ive been told for making it work are basically

>dont dress up like one of the princesses
>dont use the same colors as the princesses
>dont let people take pictures of you
>try to wear mickey ears with your coord to show youre a visitor not an actor
>generally do not draw attention to yourself more than it already will be
>>
Honestly, you are picking a bad time to go in lolita. It is already pretty hot here.

For comfort: wear flat shoes, natural hair, as light of a blouse & petticoat as possible, and maybe bring ankle socks to change into.

To not get kicked out: Don't take pictures with guests, and dont cosplay. You can wear themed prints etc, just dont show up with a lavender dress and rapunzel styled wig and you'll be fine.

If you plan to ride things: make sure hair accessories are pinned down well or easily removable. Don't wear a wig because it might come off and it will be hot anyway. If you are insistant about a wig, safety pin your hair items in it.

Lastly, many castmembers are aware of what lolita is, and are lolitas themselves. If they call you princess it is because they will call anyone wearing a fancy dress that, not because they need to be schooled.
>>
>>8988765
I work at wdw and see a lot of Lolitas. Basically just don't draw too much attention to yourself and you're golden. Castmembers generally like seeing it too.

It's getting go be really hot and humid though, so if you're really thinking of going make sure you know what you want to do.

Hey nice. Glad to hear it, thanks for the opinion. I saw that they have a schedule of events posted now so I'll have to give that a thorough look. I'm just not even sure what to start lol, I've never done anything like this.

If you don't mind, are there any particular events/days that you recommend? I live in southern IL so I'd just go one day.

I went to ASTL in 2013, only time I've been there because it's pretty far for me and a friend of mine needed 2 more people for her hotel room.

It was okay. For some reason, they closed the convention center in the middle of the night so everyone was locked out. Either this is a normal thing and no one told me, or they were being dicks that year in particular. Didn't really affect me majorly either way.

The people seemed pretty stuck up and it was hard to find people who were willing to have a conversation for more than a minute. Staffers were nice. I didn't know anyone there except the girl I drove up with and my boyfriend. I've had much better cons. The venue is nice and they seem to have their shit together generally speaking.

Overall not a bad con, certainly less debilitating drama than years past. The artists alley had shit in terms of pins though. Thinking I'll do a table with a couple friends of mine next time around.

Found some cool cosplays, but didn't get photos of pretty much any of them. I did pick up a really cool thing of layered paper art from AA. Don't remember who the artist was, but pic related is a pic I took of the thing.

Seems Santa was back again from last year, same cosplayer, new outfit. They actually passed out presents this year, which seemed kinda cool.

This is something I always wanted to get an opinion on from /cgl/ because I've seen a few posts in different threads about it but I've never really seen threads about it. Anyway:

>Do you think kids should be permitted at cons? Or do you think it depends on the con?
>Do you think there should be an age limit when it comes to bringing children?

I'd just like to hear people's complaints or opinions on the subject, or even some stories.

Babies 0-4 do not do well at cons and can get trampled, stolen or sick.
However 5+ seem like an ok age to bring along, as long as the parent watches them and leaves as soon as the kid becomes miserable.
Some young kids enjoy cons and its a magical experience where all these superheroes are walking around in front of their very eyes.
Parents who neglect, ignore or use their children as props purely because they want to have fun need to be shot and their kids handed over to CPS.
I hear too many stories of people using their brats as a cosplay prop, expecting to be catored to or just refusing to take care of their kid because con is "me time". Its sickening. Don't have kids if you aren't gonna take care of them.
>>
>>8977912
I'm ok with it, pretty much agree with >>8977912

It feels awesome when you see someone's face light up when they get excited when they see who you're dressed as, being their favorite character or something, but it feels even more genuine with a kid. A lot of the time with adults, they compliment you based on, "Hey, you got that buckle and patch right, most don't." But with kids, they're just super excited to see their hero. I appreciate when people see the hard work I put into my cosplays, but a kid getting excited is something else.

Just today at a con as I was dressed as the Lone Wanderer from Fallout, a kid came up to me (he was a Ninja Turtle, his dad was Master Chief) all excited. He asked to get his photo taken with me, I let him shoulder my Laser Rifle and gave him one of my many Nuka Cola bottle caps. He was estatic.

While I had questions as to whether a 9 year old should play Fallout (perhaps I'm overreacting, my parents abided by the ESRB ratings and I plan on it with my kids), I was more than happy with his reaction, and it reminded me that we're all emulating someone's hero here (or favorite villain, waifu, ect).
>>
I remember one year when this guy parked his baby cart (baby included) flush against my artist alley table so he could go play in the Yu Gi Oh tournament a good 50 feet away. It wasn't an immediate brb, as weird as that would still be. The guy was gone a good half hour before I visibly saw him just hanging out playing Yu Gi Oh. 'Bout lost my fucking mind.

I had to find someone to watch my table for a sec while I carefully go move the baby cart back to the shitty dad, to which he starts freaking out at me about what the fuck I'm doing.

I get back and apparently the fucking mother with second baby sit at my table (as the guy I asked to watch my table has an emergency and had to run and wound up asking this lady as he knew her) and this one's little baby was eating my markers because the mom was not paying attention either. Fortunately they were crayola, but god fucking damn. Apparently they liked my table because it was the one within eyeshot of the YGO tournament. I try and chill out and I guess I wound up being really nice to the lady (for having a spare chair for her to sit in I guess and not cussing her or her shitty husband out). For some reason she liked me and found me on Facebook, where she proceeded to tag me in 500 pictures as Joey Wheeler and her friends as other anime characters.

Tangents aside, those parents never paid attention to their kids at cons or other events (a while later I stepped out for a smoke and found one of the babies, now able to walk, outside alone in the parking lot of a Japanese-themed arcade at 1 in the morning-- this is a shady af area of Las Vegas too-- a lot of locals were staying overnight inside the arcade for a lock-in). Shitty parents. I brought the kid in and told the parents to get a sitter or go the fuck home.

I've heard they've had CPS called on them, but I've also seen them recently with the kids. Typical, jobless bums that go to every local event they can with their untamed, unsupervised rugrats.

To help get the thread started I'll post some questions from last thread.

These questions are for the brolitas.

How did you get into the fashion?
Why do you like wearing the fashion?
How many main pieces do you have?
Do members in your Comm accept you?
How do you normally dress?

These questions are for the females.

Does your Comm have a brolita?
Does your brolita coord properly?
Is the brolita fun to hang out with?
