Now that it's only a month away and there aren't any more major updates (I think?), let's have a Kami-Con thread!

First of all, who's going?

Which guests are you excited to see?

Which musical acts are you stoked for?

What, if anything, do you hope will be improved upon from last year?

What kind of anime shit will you be looking for in the Dealers Room/Artist Alley?

How inundated is the con going to be with Undertale and Steven Universe cosplay?

I've noticed that there seem to be less and less SE seagulls in the past few years. even AWA and momo threads barely get attention now.
I'm interested in God Save The Queen
Yeah, I've noticed too, and I've been wondering about it. I mean, it's not like they don't use the Internet.

I'm not a cosplayer myself, but I might hit up God Save The Queen if I'm not doing anything else at the time.
I'll be there. Mostly likely as Classic Princess Daisy ans Princess Agitha and enter her in the contest if I get her done in time.

I'm really excited to attend a God Save The Queen panel.

How would i go about cosplay this?
Sans the guns because ill just buy any old airsoft toy for cheap.

Check out some surplus stores for boots and some fatigues. Airsoft websites for things like the chest rig and holster and maybe even the grenades. No clue about the helmet though.

discuss all things related to garment construction including patterns, draping, and construction details (darts, specific seams, etc.)

Drapping info
I don't know exactly how relevant it is, but how do people feel about costumes where it's mostly altered existing garments? I'm really not confident in sewing anything more difficult than a straight line, so a lot of my cosplays end up being modified basic pieces. I think the hardest thing I've sewn together was a long trenchcoat, and I had help on that. I know a lot of basics, but it shows I know just that.

>mfw trying to wrestle with a raincoat I'm sewing sleeves onto without something to hold it up/hold shit I don't want to sew out of the way

Hey /cgl/

Me and my girlfriend are split on whether to go to Comic Con Tampa (August) or Dragoncon (September) this year. We're only going to one.

We've both been to Dragoncon twice, and thoroughly enjoyed it. I know Comic Con San Diego is the shit, but I never hear anything about Tampa. I've compared the two websites and CC hardly has anything posted as far as celebrity guest list and events. That kind of concerns me. DC has more info posted despite being a month further away.

>Comic con Tampa pros
It's closer (we live in Jax FL)
It's cheaper ($65/ticket right now)
We've never been to a Comic con

>CC Cons
Website has little information listed on events or guests
Atlanta is cooler than Tampa

>Dragoncon pros
We know what to expect
Seems like it's a bigger event all around with more to do and see
Atlanta is cooler than Tampa

>DC Cons
More expensive ($100/ticket right now)
Further away

Has anybody here been to both? I'm not trying to wait until the week before to buy tickets. But CC is seriously slacking on the event/guest list information. Any feedback helps.

It's only a couple hours longer to drive to ATL than Tampa from Jax. Go to Dragon*con.

Any experience with Comic con Tampa?
TBCC was a train wreck. It was so unorganized and the staff were clueless. I don't care who they get as a guest I won't be giving them my money again. DragonCon might be crowded but at least there are plenty of other entertaining things to do. TBCC was bland, the only attraction they have is their guest list.

New bread cause autosage and tipsy.

Meetup was pretty neat. Many faces come and go. Grace's Mandarin is expensive but good. Didn't have to wait for a table at 7pm. Planning to go again tomorrow.
Seeing a fuck ton of lolitas. So sad I didn't bring my dresses with me.
However, there was this one girl who was wearing a basic sack dress with a petticoat, like dude, no. Wtf?
Today was alright. Cgl meetup was pretty good, beat my expectations. Managed to walk into room parties and made a friend or two in the process.

You know. I can't really keep my paints and stuff in my sewing room. But you know what I've found is pretty good for organizing my paints and such?

A rolling tool chest. Especially when you get one with lots of drawers. I have one drawer for craft paint, one holds my fabric paint, one my tape, one for larger paint brushes, etc...

The one I own was my dad's old tool chest. It has a cabinet part at the bottom, so I keep stuff like my drill in there.

It may not be the prettiest thing, but it does keep my stuff organized. I've seen Costco selling a nice wooden looking tool chest. It looked like a large jewelry box.
I guess Costco doesn't sell it anymore but it looks like this and you can find it on Amazon and other sites.

You can also Google stuff like "wooden tool chest" and see some options.
Huh, that's pretty clever. I dont have nearly that much to keep track of paint-wise, but I use pic related instead. Holds all my paints, brushes, glues, palletes, and safety gear (goggles, masks, etc for sanding and woodwork) like a charm, and nicely labeled/accessible too!

So I've been wondering: 'What can I do to help my hair?' I've moved my skin regimen to an eight step process, but I'm falling short in the hair care department.

I've started using OGX shampoos and have a Moroccan argan oil I apply to the lower three inches several times a week. Any recommended masks or anything to step up my game is appreciated.

Appreciation Blogs:


Individual Blogs**:

**NB: Many of these blogs dabble in both lolita and otome or exist in the grey area between the two. There's also varying experience levels.
How rare is it for Peppermint Fox/Mulberry Chronicles collections to come up for resale or rerelease? I am smitten with a few that are long gone.

Every time I've been to a convention I've stuck to the videgame room/arcade, artist alley, and dealer's room, but this year I want to start going to panels. So I want to hear all stories: the good, the bad, and the ugly.all

>Really like Dangit Ron Paul, but have 0 interaction with the fanbase
>Go to a panel sbout it at a con
>Panel is a bunch of teenage girls in bad cosplay acting out their fanfiction
>sit through the whole thing because I felt it would be rude to leave and morbid curiosity

My rule now is guest only panels or bust.
>>sit through the whole thing because I felt it would be rude to leave
pffft... grow some balls and walk out. Just stare at the door and bee line your way out, nobody cares, everybody has a life.

If you want to be rude though, rather blatantly, as you pick up your things and leave put your cellphone up like you have to meet someone and say "yeah I'm on my way, this panel is <insert comment>" I've seen people do that too, only ones who will hear it are the people nearest you as you walk out. Annoying but hey everyone has their own opinion and shit, I'd respect that too.
The only really scary panels are the ones where the hosts don't show up or with audience feedback.
Then every autistic schmuck hogs the mic and talks about that experience they think is really funny but isn't at all.

best and worst you've seen and how the fuck do you cell shade?

I hate cell shading personally. It can look okay when smoothed out in photoshop but in person the cosplayer just looks dirty.

Jessica Nigri's contouring for Tiny Tina is also horrifying.
There is something about the lips on her that ages her like fucking milk. I just started a Handsome Jack costume, but instead of trying to work with my round face I'm full sculpting a mask which ain't think might look better with cel-shading.

I personally like when people cell shade for borderlands cosplay. There is a good and bad for it though, because not everyone does it well. Like for instance I like that handsome jack, but I feel like that's too much makeup/face photoshop.

I know for most of us it's winter time, but can we have a floral dress/clothes thread? Lolita, Natural Kei, Cult Party Kei, Mori Girl, or whatever. As long as flowers are the main part of the print or design.

Looking for Chocolate Rosette JSK in Navy and Ivory. I know tons of coords exist out there. Looking for nicely balanced examples.
Not terribly specific, but I'd appreciate any worn coords of any underbust cut JSKs. Thanks in advance!
I would like to see Fantastic Dolly JSK in pink, preferably the non high-waisted one.
