Post your favorite classic coords.

I haven't worn lolita in years and also sold most of my dresses. But I found the cutest fabric today and I really want to make a new lolita dress out of it. So I could use some inspiration.

What's made your blood boil lately, /cgl/? What's made you want to rip the hairs out of your painstakingly-ventilated wig? What sort of asshattery did you see at your last convention or meetup?

Just saw this in my local cosplay group. She also posted a few days ago asking if anyone was interested in making cosplay videos with her, as she was a "pretty good Levi Ackerman" cosplayer.
>paying for a con
>no money
>cant just use a plainclothes cosplay with maybe a sign or name tag

Good shit, i mad 8/10
Does she not comprehend that people require compensation for goods or services? She's asking for charity for cosplay. Jfc.

How do you guys deal with unsupportive parents/guardians/family members?

Personally I just turned 23 but I'm living with my parents again before pursuing graduate school in the fall because money and it can get frustrating to feel like I still have to ask for permission to go to conventions and stuff. Even talking about it just seems like I'm pulling teeth when this is a hobby I've had since I was 14. My dad's whole thing is that as long as I'm in his house I'm still his kid and still have to answer to my folks which I can understand (I've got a good relationship with them other than this) but they really haven't made any effort to understand or accept my hobbies. My mom tries I think but will still side with my dad when it comes down to it. It's disheartening because I don't need them to even be so happy about it - I just need them to tolerate it and know that it makes me happy and I'll be participating in the convention scene until I personally don't want to anymore. I guess I don't really know the best way to tell them this and not have it result in a fight.

General parents/family in cosplay/lolita/etc complaints/stories would be great. Do your family members like what you do? Hate it? Cosplay with you?

lie about what you're doing. even if they find out good luck having hunt u down in a crowd of thousands kek
My dad encouraged me a lot, and helped me with power tools and sanding some props for costumes.
My mom helps with sewing and patterns and things like that.

Both my parents love that it makes me so happy.
When I was really depressed about a year ago, I made halfhearted plans to go to a small, local con and didn't want to cosplay. My mom surprised me by buying all the pieces for a Raven (teen titans) cosplay and helping me get the rest of the stuff I needed.
I'm still losing interest in the cosplay scene in general, but my parents have always been really supportive of my hobby.
Sometimes it's easier to ask for forgiveness than permission. In the grand scheme of things, when given the choice of "Kicking them out and never seeing them again" or "They sneak out sometimes but at least they're home with me," your parents are going to choose the latter.

I threw together some progress on Yamato no Kami Yasusada today. It turned out a lot better than I had expected it to for being all put together in a day. For the most part it was just a lot of practice getting used to my new serger. I know I am probably going to nix the Hakama, just because they were just an attempted made from some left over twill I had. But maybe they're salvageable.

Hopefully I can finish all the fabric stuff and start some armor work tomorrow.

Your sleeves are completely wrong.
Sorry Anon, but that's terribly inaccurate.
Did you even look at the character when you made this cosplay?

This is why im not upset that i scheduled shoots through the whole con.

Who the hell would pass up shooting with pretty girls to go to these shitty panels?

Except for the Me!Me!Me! one. Ill probably be there for that one. ;)

Why does the East Coast treat cosplay related events so much better than West Coast? West Coast has some good cosplay related panels but cons always just stick them in panel rooms and do little to promote them. Meanwhile the West Coast just treats these events like a giant free for all where they'll take anyone.

Meanwhile cons like Anime Boston or Tora-con actually feature these events. Boston puts cosplay chess and cosplay death match on the main stage, they get hyped crowds


Hell Anime Boston goes as far as to have a "cosplot" where they tie in the events of all their major fan events to a big storyline that concludes at the masquerade. There's scripts that need to be memorized and intense rehearsals.

Meanwhile events like Cosplay Chess are screened. There's actual dialogue, story arcs and the fight scenes are choreographed. The pieces, moves and actors are screened beforehand. In the West you get people flopping on the stage, East Coast brings something a bit more impressive.


Let's not forget that some of these cons also increase the production values. As you can see in the example image the hosts went as far as to create custom graphics for the board and matchups that gets updated in real time. This just shows the tremendous amounts of TLC put into the events.

You could argue that cons put so much attention to the events as their main programming is lackluster. However we all know that East Coast cons still draw huge guests both from US and Japan so such assumptions would be wrong.

So, why do people care so little about fan events (both from the hosts and cons perspective) in the West Coast?

East and West coast con culture is just incredibly different in a LOT of ways. It's still possible to get free photos on the west coast, meanwhile greenbox newbies are charging 150$ for three photos at Katsu. AB and Ota both focus a lot on getting asses in chairs due to space constraints, so any big draw event gets hyped, but the weather out West is always nice and people can wander around outside doing shoots instead. Lots of factors culturally.

But probably the answer has to do with how incestuous most con staff is. A lot of people work for multiple cons in their own geographic areas, so ideas like 'featured cosplay event' will happen at con A because one person really pushed for it and then it gets spread to con B, C, and D because those staffers also worked at con A, and eventually it becomes a tradition and gets blowm up. Meanwhile nobody on the opposite coast works any of those cons so even if they wanted to start something there's a lack of knowledge for logistics which makes it tough.

AB does a good job with cosplay events, though. Much better than a hundred "ask-a-character" panel cringefest.
Toracon's cosplay chess only works because it's a college club that gets to work on it all year. Outside of a condensed community like that it's hard to pull off something like that and also it took them years to refine the process and is only helped by the fact some graduates are still around. Previous years were awful and gave 10 minutes of stage time to terrible gags. With a regular con taking community volunteers you would have too much turnover and flakes.

Also west coast has a lot of game shows and it's own unique panels like Banzai Arcade. Both coasts have plenty of wtf "ask a ____" panels and even Toracon has that guy who runs a "Miku Hatsune concert" which is just projections from his laptop. Still it has caused headaches for crowd control for the amount of people who think they're getting a hologram concert.

>tfw major post con depression
I don't think I've experienced post-con depression this badly until now. This year made up for how gloomy last year felt.
So what ribbons did you end up getting. I know some of my friends got close to 300. I was there mostly Saturday and wasn't trying very hard, so I got just a few. All the ones I got were from friends except for the lesser dog ribbon. I found that one on the ground on Sunday when I was picking up a friend for lunch.

How well do fabric blends take rit dye? Like fabrics that are mostly natural fibers with 10-20% synthetic blended in.
Pretty good. The higher the percentage of cotton the better, but I've had lower grade take the dye okay. Like 60% cotton if I remember correctly.
Any tips on retying an Arda Chibi? I've been trying and having a really hard time dealing with the wig fit. It doesn't feel too small but it definitely feels tight around my forehead and hairline and I don't know why that is.
