Can we make a thread about Osomatsu cosplays? Any opinions about girlymatsu and their j-fashion style?
It makes me sad because before it blew up I wanted to cosplay Totty just to walk around the con in when I don't feel like dressing up too nice or something. But now I feel like that would make me a target for whales and glompers.
And to start us off here is this fucking disgrace

Exactly 2 weeks until the con. how's everyone planning on spending their weekend? and what did y'all think of the date changing this year?
Post skincare questions, concerns, product recommendations, and other skin related issues here!
Basic skincare routine(s) will be reposted as one of the first few replies to this thread, please open the thread and read them if you're just starting out.
What is chemical exfoliation because we get this question every thread https://www.reddit.com/r/SkincareAddiction/comments/1fx45x/ahas_and_bhas_whats_the_difference_and_how_to/
Useful subs are /r/AsianBeauty and SkincareAddiction
If you have a question, please tell us a bit about your skin type (dry, oily, combination, sensitive, acne prone, rosacea, eczema etc), current routine, and what you've tried before. Skincare is very individual and the more information we have, the more we can help
Basic routine for acne prone skin:
The idea of this routine is
- not to irritate your skin with physical exfoliation (i.e. all scrubs, clairsonics etc.) as irritation can lead to acne!
-help clear up current acne
-provide moisture so that your skin doesn't over-produce oil to compensate for you stripping it with harsh cleansers.
Cerave cleanser/Cetaphil for sensitive skin
Thayers witch hazel toner
Spot treatment for active acne/zits (e.g. benzoyl peroxide, neosporin, adapalene)
Cosrx BHA power liquid OR Paula's Choice BHA liquid OR Stridex Red Box
Aloe vera gel to moisturize (try for a really high percentage of aloe with minimal additives, brand is unimportant)
cleanser - Cetaphil or CeraVe
witch hazel (preferably Thayer's brand)
Cetaphil Lotion, Aloe Vera gel
Those are the basic items we tend to reccomend in threads for people who are just getting started. They also double as products that are good if you have sensitive skin. Now, the point of the steps are:
Cleanser - wash off any accumulated dirt and oils from the day.
Toner - helps pick up anything missed from the cleanser, helps reset the pH of your skin, also low key exfoliates.
Moisturizer - yes this is necessary, even if you have oily skin. You tend to wash off some of the natural oils of your skin when you wash it. This helps trap in moisture and keeps your skin hydrated.
You have multiple steps in your routine that could be drying you out and irritating your skin. I think you might need to stop physically exfoliating with your face brushes and also cut back on the African black soap, as that is pretty alkaline and can be both drying and irritating. Keep your current moisturiser and think about adding a gentle chemical exfoliant to help with your blackheads and whiteheads
Are there any Salopette memes? I don't think I've ever seen one.
I only remember one where someone posted a side by side compare with a slim Asian girl in a salo that fit then our favorite queen in her bunny salo that...did not fit...one side said 'yes' the other 'no'.

Just installed Starlight Stage on my phone and I'm so hyped to do more [email protected] cosplays
I wonder, does anybody have any good idol animes that are not on OPs list? You know, not the overly popular ones.
I know this is probably a question for /a/ but those fags would probably just scream LOVE LIVUUUU at me.
Don't hate on Love Live because it's popular there's a reason for it. Mostly because it doesn't alienate female viewers
Con is only 2 weeks away.
Any one going? Working it? Seagull meetup?
Becoming an extra in the Ayumi Tanaka film?
I really wish they had a better format for the online programming guides. They're so annoying to navigate...
I'll be there all weekend although I'm still debating if I want to skip classes on Friday. If Tokyo Attack brings Dance Evolution, I'll cry the happiest tears I've ever cried in my life.
What are your cosplay plans?
Just under 6 weeks until Anime Boston!
>What are you cosplaying?
>What are your plans?
>What are you most hyped for?
I have two coords for Friday and Saturday, and Sunday I'll be in normie stuff. I do press so depending on how many more guests they announce will affect how many interviews I do. Me and my friends plan on ordering takeout from a restaurant nearby to compensate for the lack of food court. Mostly I'm hyped for friends because I've got about 10 different people flying in that have never been to AB before. Crossing my fingers that I have time for everything haha.
I know this comes up now and then. Lacemarket sucks in many ways but we're all stuck with it.
I decided to make a 2nd hand marketplace as a side project for myself and wanted to make it jfashion/lolita themed. I already have a couple of ideas for it and was wondering what you think about them and what else you would like.
>Data (release year, original price, measurements & pictures) can be automatically fetched from lolibrary (issue here being how unreliable lolibrary's servers are)
>Private or public wardrobe with all of your items. You can upload pictures and other data for these too. Specific items or the whole wardrobe can be set to private.
>If items are in your wardrobe you can sell them with a couple of clicks, the data is already filled in, you just need to put in a price.
>When buying you can chose to automatically add the bought item to your wardrobe
>In addition to a selling area, there is a WTB area where you can post what you are looking for (not sure how the communication and selling process should be here if someone has the item and wants to sell it to you)
>Maybe additionally a dream item area for things you aren't looking for right now, like a wish list
>Set up tags/names/lolibrary links you want to follow so you're automatically alerted when a new WTS/WTB pops up
>Actual Paypal integration (one click buy, no manual invoicing, no adding paypal fees on top)
>Proper offer system (see ebay)
>Price can be specified in any currency, will be displayed in the buyers chosen currency (using paypal exchange rates)
>Some statistics to help you determine item going rates (this could be premium to pay for the servers)
>Items will be automatically bumped to the top results if the price is lowered (or pay a small sum for it)
>Filtering by country
My biggest issue with j-fashion mart in general is: What about replicas? Lolita is plagued with a lot of replica issues, but so are other brands, Liz Lisa being a j-fashion is one that is arguably even worse than the AP replica issues.
What would you labeling something a replica? It's kind of hard, because said real life example was this girl I know who buys dirt cheap taobao all the time. She searched eBay for "thigh high boots" or something similar and ended up buying brown Liz Lisa replicas. When I asked her why she's wearing LL replicas, she had no idea what I was talking about.
How would you also keep out those tacky Etsy-type resellers that just buy something, label it like "cute strawberry sweater" and hike up the price when it's something like a random gyaru brand replica?
But anyway, please keep doing what you're doing for sure. Lacemarket is a great concept, but it's plagued with issues and I'd love to see something a bit more broad. I think this could unite a lot of different comms like gyaru, mori girl, and so on.
If it's gonna be general jfashion themed, how are you gonna keep it from filling up with random crap? Like someone's granny sweater that can totally be worn for fairy kei!! Make it Japanese brands only? Make policies for each jfashion?
I'm not knocking it just wondering how well it will work. It seems like outside of lolita with very strict guidelines, people will try to bend the rules of what constitutes jfashion as much as possible. I think it's a good idea though and I'd love a place for other jfashions since I don't wear lolita.
Gulls, what did you think was lolita when you first started. What was your first "coord"?

Check out this video of Vic lasanga yelling at some "you're all going to hell" protesters.
I was actually just at this con myself today and saw these people, they frequent cons in the area and usually get asked to leave.

Post your feels. Sad, angry, happy, or otherwise.
>please keep them /cgl/ related
>get interested in new jfash styles all the time
>not nearly enough disposable income to explore all these styles
Recently I've lost a lot of interest in lolita. I used to get so excited about it but I feel the novelty has worn off. I still go to meet ups if I can and they are fun, but I'm just not as... pumped up about it? I still appreciate the fashion but I just don't wear it that much since I rarely leave my house.
What are some ways seagulls suggest to rekindle your frilly love? I'm thinking of maybe working on some accessories to go with outfits of mine will spice things up.
