Please can we have a regretsy/regretstorenvy/regretlolitasalesy/whatever you regret exists for sale thread?
Is it too soon to wear David Bowie's smirking face stretched across your butt? (This was tagged cosplay, for when your ass wants to cosplay the goblin king.)
What's your opinion on parents dragging their kids to cons?
Story related: This chick asked if she could bring her 1 month old baby to a con in a convention group, multiple people advised against it, including a staff member who she tried to argue with
Someone was asking what to dress their kid up as before it was even born on the ohayocon (lol) group I think last year. As in it wouldnot even be a year old.
Otherwise as much as I dislike kids and kid-worshipping it still warms my heart a little to see kids (not toddlers) enjoying conventions. Recently my friend's siblings went dressed as Inklings and they got a free print from an artist alley person.

Recommendations for a bb cream for oily skin? I've used Missha magic cushion and liked that, considering trying Etude House's cotton fit too but there are mixed reviews. Is Iope's air cushion worth it? And some general questions to get us started
>how much/what makeup do you wear on a daily basis?
>favorite cheap/drugstore finds?
>favorite high end western products?
>favorite asian products?
>does your job let you wear the makeup you want to wear?
How much makeup I'm wearing that day depends on where I'm going. If it's just to work, I only cover up any blemishes and wear lip gloss. I work in a children's store so I don't think it would be appropriate to wear a ton of makeup. If I'm going somewhere I'll usually go all out.
Any recommendations on foundation and cover up for super dry skin? I've bought like 4 different brands in the past that all have said for dry skin and it still looked gross and flakey.
I exfoliate once a week and wash/moisturize daily and it seems like no matter what products I'm using I still get gross, flakey dry skin everyday and I get bad hormonal acne too but can't use acne products because they dry out my skin more. Not sure how to fix my shitty skin at this point.
I never considered makeup until I started cosplaying seriously. My job doesn't really enforce makeup even though we work with doctors and high end people. It might be because we do just about everything at my job from serving food to passing out flyers and crawling under spaces.

Post "famous" cosplayers who started shitty trends you'd like to see less of.

Someone else please.
I'll start with the worst offender in my book: Reika.
>inspired shitty Levi makeup trend
>no blend contours
I always have an urge to reach out and blend out that contouring of hers with a sponge. How hard is it to blend that shit to non-ink levels???
It's not just Levi but practically in every cosplay she has done.
Since somebody didn't want to make it.

As the xon coes to aclose, let's take a moment to thank those people who made this ALA a little special for yourself. Could be anything from some cute girl or guys giving you a smile to getting plastered all night with with your fellow gulls
Stay safe and see you guys at the next one.
There are plenty of female uniforms out there for grabs, but where could one nab a male uniform?
Also, this is going to be a general school uniform thread.
Well just reposting from the taobao thread because I still haven't had any luck.
I'm looking for a boxy/shapeless blazer for nanchatte. The ones I found through the nanchatte google sheet have mixed reviewes. For $40, apparently the two I was looking at both wrinkle easily. For the cheaper blazers, the phrase "you get what you pay for" comes up a lot for the $20 ones.
I don't mind blowing decent money on this, I just want options before forking over $250 to conomi.
Also, I'm ordering my first, long skirt from taobao. I'm so excited.

Starting the thread off with some sad news (reposted from last thread as it was already autosaging then):
29 January 2016 @ 10:52 pm
† Information about the Gothic&Lolita Bible
I think everyone always looks forward to my photos wearing Moi-meme-Moitie in the Gothic&Lolita Bible, but this time I got this from the person in charge
"Every issue we've always requested Mana-Sama x Moi-meme-Moitie pages, but according to the publisher it has been decided that from next issue on those plans will come to an end…"
Thats what they said.
I have always taken part in the Gothic&Lolita Bible since the very first issue over a span of some 10 years, so as you might expect I'm a little sad.
has anyone ever seen or know people that cosplay 4chan related stuff/memes ?
Old one died and I needed to get this out
>Sweetest girl ever talented UX designer
>But also overweight and makes terrible cosplay choices
>She posts progress photos for Miss Monochrome costume made purely from duct tape
>Pretty much as bad as it sounds
I'm caught in this weird feeling of I know this is a failure that deserves to be shared on cgl. but if she ever found out she got posted and ridiculed she would be humiliated. But her costumes are never really good and we aren't close enough to the point I should be trying to guide her. She's unfortunately also being influenced by this terrifying local hambeast cosplayer with a ton of chubby chaser followers who loves making duct tape cosplays of things that don't deserve to be duct tape. I'm just rambling now but it really is terrible. Imagine a duct tape dress form for a short obese girl but it's made to look like Rin Kagamine's Meltdown dress.
>found out a friend of mine is also a cosplayer
>go on her cosplay page
>some really cute cosplays
>but mostly lingerie shoots with FiveRings
>replies to thirst comments on her photos with flirty comments and winking faces
>mfw she goes out of her way to tell me that it's for her own pleasure and not for male validation despite that I didn't even question her about it.
I went looking through old cosplay photos tonight after years and years. Most of them come from back when I struggled with an eating disorder. I realize now how very thin I was and hate that I spent so much time obsessing over feeling otherwise when I might have been able to appreciate my cute little figure had I not, you know, had a disorder.
But I also feel kind of gross now. I've put on weight, both fat and muscle, as I've gotten better over time, and while I'm a healthier weight now, I would never look as good in some of these costumes. I feel fat and mostly hide that in lolita these days. I miss cosplay but am afraid I'd get weird and obsessive again if I tried to slim down, like I'd constantly be comparing to when I was sick but small.
Most of you thought lucky pack season was over - and obviously we're wrong. AP USA newsletter #3 announced new lucky packs.
Otherwise, post hauls, reviews, and horror stories.
Since salty anons were complaining in the dream dress thread.
Paid more than I wanted to for Dream Fantasy because of my SS fucking up the snipe. Kind of salty about it but I got Queen of Snow for a decent price so I suppose I can't complain.
Also snagged Sweetie Chandelier recently, which I'm pleased about.
No this is bullshit, you can post tiers in the dream dress thread, that's what it's fucking for. We don't need two threads for this, stop trying to make it happen.
Jesus, I wish we could sage still.
Didn't see one in the catalog.
