It's almost time to tune back in to HBO and break out the fur and armor and dragons. How about a general Game of Thrones thread.
This may be appropriate
The more I read the worse it gets but I have way too much non-refundable money sunk into going to not go and I'd rather be there than at work, anyway.
If nothing else, I suppose I can bring my dead SLR and pretend to take pictures of people to pass the time.
Post the ones that make your heart doki to the ones that should've never happened. >What are your dream couple cosplays? >Best/Worst experience doing a couple cosplay? >What couple cosplay needs to stop being a thing? >Which couple cosplay do you see you could see more of?
its typically recommended to do a dump of examples to get a thread going but i'll give you this OP
this beast boy and raven always make my heart flutter
Oh okay, will start dumping some of my favorites!

Any gulls who only wear lolita to meets? I want to get back into it but am too anxious to wear it out alone. I can't decide whether this hobby is worth the money if I only wear my dresses for, say, five times a year.
>inb4 "just wear your stuff out when you're alone!!/just do it/overcome your anxiety and go for it/etc etc etc. Been there, done that. Didn't work.
I don't wear lolita daily, I wear it probably around 3-4 times a month, and I personally think it's worth it. But I just genuinely love the fashion and don't spend as much money on other hobbies. It all depends on you and your personal preference.
Old thread in autosage
Let's discuss this monstrosity
Anything old school related - stick it here! To encourage fresh picture content, I think decent 'old school inspired' and well-balanced hybrid outfits etc are ok to post here, with the proviso that if an outfit seems broadly more modern than not, it might be better placed in a different thread.
old school angelic pretty at its best is truly sublime
Old Canada thread is falling fast and Ontario should probably have its own thread given the weight of activity.

Any cons, meetups, parties, etc fellow seagulls are hitting up?
what are your thoughts on people cosplaying as kpop idols?

Reposting from previous thread, because I'm hoping it's just abnormal.
Has anyone ever had closet child mess up their address? Luckily it still made it to me in the US, but my address was labeled for the United Kingdom and had the wrong zip code. I checked if I had entered it correctly in my email, but it was so I'm not sure what happened.
>The "Where are you Valentines Sale?" edition.
Dropping two new? items from Rakuten.
So I want to start a LARPing group in my area. Any advice for getting it organized or anything?
tons. In fact so many that you have to narrow this down a bit.
Which country, what kind of larp, what is your target audience, have you any experience in it, what do you have for logistics, any already own equipment, etc.
I'm in the US, Missouri specifically. I've never larped before, I'm hoping to get about a dozen guys my age together, I don't have any equipment yet but I'm working on getting together some stuff to make mine (I'm pretty handy sewing and stuff), and I have no idea what to use for logistics.
Basically any advice you can give is very very welcome.
well then first of all you have to decide what kind of game you want and what is your target audience, everything else depends on this. That is, if you want to do this seriously.
the what kind of game is a very broad question with a lot of implication. Do you want it to be a fantasy boffer larp? Or scifi? or something else? Do you want it to be more of a chamber larp that doesn't need outdoor places to be played? Should it be more roleplay heavy or fighting heavy? Do you want to exclude roleplaying nearly altogether like amtgard, dagorhir and such (which would also make it into something else than a larp)? Should it be fantasy, or closer to real life medieval, or some other time period?
etc. Lots of questions and these are just a few examples, but if you can answer these then the answers will create the main structure of your game.
About the target audience, you will have to consider how many players you want for the game, what kind of players you want and such. For example if you want a roleplay heavy game but advertise it for people who want to only fight then obviously both you and the players will be dissapointed. Deciding the target audience is mostly about deciding what kind of people won't be interested in your game because this and the "what kind of game you want" will also be the base of a lot of other things, like how complex the rules system should be and such.

Confession thread y'all.
You know the drill.
>i literally live through the past lately,reading old egl posts,old getoffegl posts,even sometimes old drama like old kotakoti drama on /cgl/ or venus when it was still relevant and new... i miss "before" and i feel like the "present" is just lacking something..
>when i get a something another girl actually wanted too (sales,bidding,..) it feels even better having it
I've just noticed I'm addicted to online shopping
If I feel good, I buy cute things for me
If I feel sad, I buy things to feel better
I can't stop, today I admit it to myself, I had some items on my shopping cart and I almost deleted them... but I ended buying all. After the remorse I felt very good again.
I take all my coord photos either outside or in my parents bedroom because my own room is a pigsty and I can't force myself to clean it because that just reminds me that I don't have enough room for my things.

And that was the end of it. So far.

I haven't seen her since but some Hetalia people are so bad at being appropriate that it's a wonder they haven't been banned from anything yet...
