Any of you gulls been on a cruise? Im thinking of frilling up but not sure if it is a good idea. I know it is going to be hot during the day, so I was thinking of saving the frills till night.
My ship doesn't have dry cleaning, so I was thinking of busting out the bodyline and leaving the bruando at home. Or perhaps I can maybe bring a tidestick and sewing kit just incase a waist tie button wanders of?
What do you think? I've never been on a cruise so any insight is much appricated. Thanks.
Cruises are full of rude slobbish people, sticky children, careless drunks, and I wouldn't chance wearing anything nice except when going to dinner or a show in case something happened. Depending on your wardrobe I can guarantee you'll get a slew of comments and shitty jokes like "are you Bo Peep?". Which is not uncommon around normies, but you'll be around the same people the entire trip and if they're obnoxious assholes you will ruin into them again before the trip is over. But cruises are fun and I'm sure you'll have a good time. I would keep most of the stuff at home though and only pack subtle things for special occasions.
Huh. I actually wore Sherbet Marine on a cruise to Bermuda. It was a lot of fun. Cruise ships have a lot of good spots for taking pictures, too. It's definitely warm on land, but it's not terrible. I went for a walk down the by the docks then stopped at a bar for fluffy drinks. If you really want to do it, then do it. A tidestick and small sewing kit won't take up much room in your bag.
I am Actually going on a cruis ship in February 2018 to alaska. I wonder what the weather is like and what i should bring. I wear lolita daily so idk what else I'd wear since i dont have much else
Quick! Dress up as your favorite fictional character using only items you already have in your closet.
It's been about 5 years since I've posted on this board, but here goes:
I've been feeling really out of place at conventions lately. Is it just me or have the crowds gone through a drastic change in the past few years? I mean, I feel like cosplayers are always giving each other the stink eye for cosing from the same series and everyone's copying the same two tutorials so they all look the same. Do you ever find yourself missing the days of wearing terribad cosplay and doing embarrassing anime dances in the hallway? Speak to me, I'm here for you, anon.
ITT: Weeb stories from the past where you had a good time without caring what other people thought/recent experiences with stick up their butt cosplayers
Let's reminisce tonight anon
>Went to local small con back in 2008 w/normie high school friend
>Really into deathnote
>Cosplayed L, friend was blonde so naturally she chooses to be Halle Litner
>We enter the costume contest and caramelldansen with a paper mache face ryuk who wins the cosplay contest
>couldn't even find the fast version of the caramelldansen they only had the slow version so we ended up dancing for way too long
doesn't sound fun I guess but I remember it being extremely fun
Let's have a new gyaru thread!
- gyaru awards
- the Gyarulovers Wintermeet in Germany
- what Japanese circles do you know?
And sure everything else gyaru related!
What are some /cgl/ approved sewing youtube channels? Also channels for absolute beginners at sewing.
I think we all know about Yumi King by now- most of them are pretty much terrible and a pain to watch, but the bloomers one is kinda pretty. There's also Attitude Lolita, which I like better.
We haven't had a worn thread in a while...
Requesting pics of this cut of this Meta goblins OP dress in any colorway.
Limited edition is out so how about a Life is Strange thread.
Working on something?
Will you get the artbook?
And general the good, the bad and the nightmare fuel.
Was thinking of cosplaying Max or Chloe, but seems that every lesbian couple is doing it because "huhhhhh ummmm lis lesbianz" and I just gave up on the idea.
Also, Max cosplay pet peeve is people who don't use black eyeshadow for max and/or forget the freckles
Don't abandon it anon, I'm cosplaying Max and I'm not really into the whole lesbian shippy aspect of it. And I aggressively agree with everything else you said, plus people using thick ass eyeliner for Max when she most obviously doesn't.
I'm currently working on her shoes right now, and trying to figure out how to draw on freckles without looking like my face is smeared with dirt.
Hated the ending of the game, pick a bad ending none will make you happy. Could not sleep for a few days. (Always to emotional invested in games or anime)Also thanks to that I am addicted to polaroids. There are some good max cosplay but god dammit put some freckles on your face if you do.
What kind of food or tea do you bring for meets? Share recipes, tea blends, and stories relating to lolita outings and fun meets you've been to.
My area has a little colonial tea room. It was a a shop and the neighboring victorian home the owner bought and renovated into a tea room. My local comm goes there a lot. You have to make a reservation, and you pay a flat fee per person and can pick a tea and meal set, it's really great! The worers wear colonial garb, and they have a bunch of cool vintage lady hats to wear for tea hats. They love us, since we all come decked out and it's very fun. The place is pretty classy, lots of older women go there, and the tea sandwiches and stuff are pretty good. It's probably the best tea house I've been to, which is why we go so much.
It's a shame because the owner really wants to sell it since she's so old and it requires a lot of work. The store it's attached to used to have more things, but it's a victorian novelty store, they sell lots of lace table liners, doilies, tea sets, etc.
I just tend to make a little selection of flapjacks and cake pops. Flapjacks are good for energy and are easy to store, and cake pops are super fun to decorate. I usually dip mine in pastel icing and edible glitter, or if I'm feeling fancy I'll do simple lace designs and patterns. Sometimes I make cookies with print-inspired designs if there's a release I really love, but they're a pain so I don't make them much. If it's someone's birthday I'll make a cake or something decorated with motifs from their favorite print or the dress they'll be wearing that day, it always goes down well even if it's simple.
This sounds so cool! Where is it?
I'm not a lolita (too tall), but I'll never turn away a tea thread.
I always drink black blends. Cinnamon, vanilla and ginger blends are my favourite. Ginger or lavender biscuits go really well with tea, but if you want something more fru-fru, caramel or custard tarts are great too. I wouldn't have something chocolate with tea, but maybe that's just me.
I don't know too many other people who like tea, but going to a tea party would be really nice. Usually I just have people around and bake sweets/make tea while we play tabletop games.
I'd like it if some local cons had tea rooms.
What was the con and fandom scene like "back in the day", like between the 70s/80s and mid 2000s?
Was cosplay drastically different from now?
There weren't many cons in general. Anime was its own niche so the couple cons that existed back then were exclusively anime and much smaller.
Cosplay didn't have quite as many resources and standards didn't exist so you had a lot of spray-dye and party city wigs, cheap satin, and improper footwear. Obviously no Facebook, so cosplay was more of a small local community thing and everyone just did their own thing. There was a little drama but it was minimal and mostly only within those small local communities. DA and Coscom didn't start being used for cosplay networking until the mid 2000s.
Anime cons outside of Japan have only really been a thing for the last twenty years. Most cons in the 70s/80s were sci-fi cons.
You were into it because you were really into it. Not mainstream. Average age of attendee was a l higher.
How do you feel about cosplayers who hand out stuff to people they approach or who interact with them? Have you ever done it?
I've seen cosplayers do it with flowers before. I was going to hand out something to people who approached me in cosplay (I'm not going to personally approach anyone), but I'm curious what people think of this.
one no-face gave me a chocolate coin when I was waiting in line for the cosplay competition and said "You're almost there!" It was so sweet that I'm planning on handing out little pieces of paper that say nice things if someone comes up to me. Just like a little piece of paper like one in a fortune cookie with a saying like "you can do it!" or "you are beautiful" or something.
the best instance of this i ever have and likely ever will witness is when me and my girlfriend saw two guys cosplaying as jesse and walter white and they looked SO CANON. so she yelled "yo, mr white!" from afar, as we were approaching them. we complimented their cosplays, and without saying anything, walter white just grins, pulls out a little baggie of blue rock candy, and hands it to my girlfriend. it was hilarious, i think she still has it somewhere
as for myself, i like to draw and make stickers of some of the characters from the series i'm cosplaying from, so if someone comes up and compliments my cosplay i'll offer them one. they usually seem to like it, and i've seen people have fun going through the bags (i keep them separated by series) to find their favorite character! i also write my blog url on the back of them, in case they want to follow me or whatever.
Once I saw an Okosan cosplayer and I gave them a tiny pudding cup jello candy. They gave me a heart sticker that said "Good End". I've gotten tiny presents and things at Holiday Matsuri before because people go all out for Christmas. One year there was a Santa Totoro who gave out tiny soot sprite bottle ornaments if you hugged him. I've had a Sableye gijinka give me a plastic jewel.... Honestly I love it. It's super lame but I cherish those dumb trinkets because they're nice memories.
We're filling these up pretty quickly! Old thread >>8826738
It's been a while since we've had anyone dump pictures of table setups. Anyone got something? I'd love to see some that have jewelry for sale.
>How to order from Vograce
Anyone have any examples of amateurish 'tumblr' drawing traits done in a pleasing manner?
ex. red nose, intentionally varied faces, 'ugly' traits without being an ugly drawing, etc..
I feel like a lot of these things are picked on because of the personalities and skill levels of the people cranking them out and the fact that they're riding a wave rather than the aspects themselves.
Probably not suited for an AA thread. You see threads like that every so often on other boards and people comment that the art might be good but the artist throws on so many of those things so it's not possible to be pleasing to the eye. It's so bad that people can identify people who browse Tumblr by their art style so I imagine it would take some time to find someone unique or likable.
This might belong in the dumb questions thread, bear with me.
A good while ago someone posted a link to holographic lamination film off taobao ( https://item.taobao.com/item.htm?id=7047868863 ) and seemed to get OK results with it. I'm contemplating getting some since they're so cheap.
I haven't really laminated stuff before. I'm assuming cold lamination always means the film just has one self-adhesive side (like a sticker)? So if I were to buy this, do I still need a cold laminating machine, or is there a decent way to do this at home without a machine?
Also, I'm normally pretty decent at figuring out taobao stuff but I can't figure out why this listing is so much cheaper than all the others they have. It still says 50xA5 in the title, so I don't think it's for a smaller amount or anything.
Do you have any cool stories about meeting guests at anime cons? Any spaghetti stories? I'm sure Doug Walker alone has seen enough spaghetti to last a lifetime.
>Eric Stuart signing autographs
>fat hick kid wanders over
>"Hey, can you say 'Fuck da police' as Brock?"
>fatty sighs like an asshole and rolls away
Monic Rial and Jamie Marchi complimented my Panty and Stocking drawing in the artist alley. It made me feel all warm and fuzzy.
I probably got a little starstruck and babbled at them, but oh well.
They were super cute.
Michael Sinterniklaas hit on me one time at a con. If he had asked me for a drink I would have said yes but there was dramu with friends and I had to go fix it
>why are you being crabby anon?
>you guys cockblocked me that's why
I met cinnamontoastKen before he got super popular. Was successfully chatting him up, Hoped to hang out with him but my friend showed up and cockblocked me.
I'll never forget that shit. His videos and online personal are cringe as fuck now, but you do what you gotta for dem YouTube dollas
I haven't seen one of these in a while so I figured it was about time. Anyone need help deciding what to cosplay in 2016?
Make 4 suggestions for others before posting your picture, otherwise no one will suggest anything for you!
Previous thread: >>8822810
Post cosplays, ask questions, talk about conventions/meetups.
A thing I was curious about: how big is the fanbase in Europe? I would love (randomly) meeting some other fans at local conventions, but everyone in the threads seems to talk about American based conventions.
Group anon/ napstablook maker here, today is the day!
It ended up being too hot for my boyfriend to wear the asriel fursuit, but someone will be sharing a box mettaton so no one stays without a costume the whole day.
I'll dump pictures later if everyone allows it, it's the first big undertale meeting in my country.
I'm filled with determination.
does anyone have a headcanon voice for any of the characters?
I've fell in love with some brand prints, but the cut of actual pieces looks too boring to me, so I ended up thinking about ripping it off for printed fabric to make a new pieces of it. It doesn't look like common practice, even more I've seen a lot of negative attitude towards brand remaking, and now I'm worrying a bit about the whole project and looking for advice.
- Do you have any experience with remaking brand clothes? Pros, cons, horror stories.
- Would you ever consider buying of remade brand item? How do you think, is it fair to sell professionally remade item for average price of particular print or I have to price it down?
- What do you think about attending brand events while wearing remade pieces of actual brand? Can it be considered like a lack of respect to designer's work?
By ripping it off, do you mean altering dresses you buy from AP? That would be cool
If you mean stealing their creative works of printed art to print your own fabric, I hope you die in a fire
how new are you?
that's not even weird in the first place.
if you own it already, sure make something out of it, but unless you can print fabric at home you'd be paying for someone to steal the print off of the dress for you. and it doesn't seem likely to keep a dress you can't wear.
