what does /cgl/ say about masked cosplays?
just as long there's a mask over their head right?
This mainly started because I was watching a tutorial that used this stuff. Badly translating the Portuguese it looks like just super glue, but the girl was putting her hands right in it without getting stuck. Is it like E600?
Similar strange international crafting materials thread. Plastimake was everywhere in Australia, but if you tried to find freezer paper to make transfers it was a fool's errand.
It just says 'rubber, plastics, cork, ceramics and metals'. I assume that because it doesn't say 'skin, fingernails' that the girl thought it was safe to shove hands into.
On their website it says that this specific glue is a cyanoacrylate and that it's recommended for flexible surfaces. It also says that starts to cure as soon as a thin layer is applied, and that it glues skin and eyes in seconds.
Tl;dr that girl is either a fucking idiot or she really, really doesn't like her hands.

Old one disappeared. Post your mail horror stories here, from missing parcels. props/accessories not arriving on time, bad packaging, damaged items in transit etc.
I'll start it off with this:
>ordered from WW a few times
>recent order, AATP Clock Rabbit Salopette in black
>package arrives and opens
>this is blue, not black
>flips the item over and sees a row of buttons
>Moi Meme Moite cardigan
Waiting a reply from WW about this.
>order dream skirt from Australia
>arrives in US, clears customs, gets to distribution center
>no updates for two weeks
>guess I'll go… ask at the post office
>run into my mail carrier a couple blocks over
>"Hey do you have anything from Austra-- HOLY SHIT THAT'S MINE!"
>address was written on a customs dispatch which has been TORN IN HALF
Someone at the local post office could read the first three letters of my street, and sent it out for delivery even though my last name and the rest of my address were missing. If I hadn't caught the guy out in the street it would have been destroyed as undeliverable, the return address was gone.
TL;DR use plastic envelopes to attach forms to the outside of your parcels.
I literally just got this email. Let me take you on a journey.
>December 5th, arts bovine has a "buy now and have it in time for christmas!" sale
>buy daki print
>after christmas husband says he got a tracking alert that something he ordered from japan was returned to sender.
>we just moved and the post office thought the house we moved into was uninhabited and bounced back all the mail we were supposed to get before christmas
>wait until Jan 10 to email arts bovine asking if they got it back yet
>Jan 17 they say it finally showed up RTS
>I pay extra for tracked shipping this time
>dead air from arts bovine
>today get this
I just want to hug my video game husbando.
No online comm thread?
What the fuck am i looking at gulls
new thread since last one met bump limit
Competition seems pretty fierce this time around
Have you ever felt unsafe at a convention?
yes, it is why i will not go to NYCC again.
the crowds are insane and the line control makes me think of the inevitable stampedes when a fire alarm goes off. there is not enough space for the number of people they allow in the building.
Yes, but not for the reason that you would imagine
>be in a "not official" relationship with a huge manipulative and mental abuser
>finally end contact but he always is trying to contact me still
>go to convention with friends
>in one of the AA rooms that is busy and confined
>wtf he's here
>he spots me instantly and makes a full on b line to me
>confronts me right here right now holy shit
>"why aren't you answering my texts anon blah blah blah" has a huge scowl on his face
>thankfully my friends are here and know him as an acquaintance
>my friends bump in and start chatting him up lel
>I peace out of there as fast as I can
Nothing like being stalked at a con and paranoid of your crazy ex.
*bee line (fyi)
i have stalker relatives (one abusive, diagnosed schizophrenic and some enablers who believe all she needs is Jesus, not treatment). i have no contact with them but they are out of touch with reality and sometimes do shit like hire PIs to track me down.
every time i go to a convention, i am worried they will find me there. this is why i used to only cosplay using masks and why i would duck away from photos. i cannot vlog or post my face to social media until i get over my fear of these whack jobs.
fuck stalkers. get a restraining order if you can. i can't prove i believe myself to be at risk for harm, but i think you might have a chance at one.
i need to kek, post some you fagets

not familiar with most of those, but "strong female leader" seems a theme.
seeing some intensity; not exactly a leader but rather self-sufficient.
I live in NOVA and have been going to Katsucon almost every year a while, but it kind of dawned on me recently that I don't even watch anime and know jack shit about the things being presented there.
I've been hesitant to try MAGFest for personal reasons, but I want to give it a shot. What is the cosplay scene like? Is it big like Katsucon? I've heard it's a better con in general, is that true?
Also general MAGFest thread since it's in 2 months?
Hi anon! I used to live in NoVA too before leaving for college (but im home for winter break now)
Magfest has an older crowd, is smaller, and focuses more in music and western media.
Cosplay scene is pretty quiet, though it's been picking up in the past few years. A lot of cosplayers have been coming out to take advantage of the Gaylord without the crowds of Katsucon. It's definitely a different feeling all around. Katsucon is very much a Cosplay Showcase convention.MAG is more relaxed and focused on party aspects of the convention, as well as music and video games. They are completely different experiences and I personally prefer MAG. There is just a lot more to see and do all around. I usually don't even cosplay past the morning for any photoshoots.
Let's discuss things in cosplay that really grind your gears,etc
I'll start with one of mine, shoes that are wrong, this cosplay isn't great otherwise but it would look significantly better if it wasn't sneakers
i disliked it when ppl mistake my cosplay for something/someone else, but i cant really blame em if they dont know
>Time is Pre- R.A.M.
>As Tom from Daft Punk
>ppl thought i was robocop
>was Magicka wizard
>thought i was the guy from Journey

Comissioner- HK Armor
$100 + $75 SH
Came with all armor/weapon seen (no cape, etc)
He's from mexico and has won awards. Communication wasn't too great, but he always responded.
Required 20 different measurements to get GMP. Once paid, it took 4 months. Fits PERFECT.
I have a question as a comissioner.
I actually plan to make 3D models of stuff relative to sci-fi, Anime and Comics on demand for cosplayer.
i need to know how much i can ask for it. i i purpose a finish 3d models in multi format ready to be print in any service. i have to make sketches and plan for the construction so it takes a bit of time without counting the modelisation itself.
so how much can i charge for this type of work ?
