Is there a way to make yourself look nice, even though you're overweight and chubby?
Like this dude. The costume seems fine, but the way he looks and the way he is photographed make everything look like shit.
Is there a way to avoid looking like a pear shaped piece of mozarella?

lose weight

flattering angles

Slightly warm lighting so you don't look pale and sick

better posture, That guy should roll his shoulders back and lift his head head up, instead he just threw his neck back.

Make-up.

Get the photographer to stand back and zoom in. this will slim the face and make you look taller (mirrors give a similar effect, if you've ever wondered why you look better in the mirror than in photos that's why)

Upon entering a convention, take your time to look at a map with your friends to designate a meet up spot. Commit to a time to meet up, and be there. This is especially important if you're like me, and your phone dies in the blink of an eye. Make sure you keep your bag to the front, pickpockets do exist at cons. Try to bring an additional safety pin for your badge so you can reinforce it on your clothes. Some places only give you a bullshit clip that does NOTHING if someone rams into you.

Hope that helps! Use condoms!

How does cgl feel about buying likes? Who are some cosplayers who obviously buy likes? Have you ever bought them yourself? What was the outcome?
38 posts and 2 images submitted.
>>
I've been tempted to buy ad space for my cosplay page because I'm finding it to be a pain in the ass to get people to actually notice and appreciate your work unless you do titties 24/7; social media algorithms can be a real dick about what people see.

I don't do a lot of revealing costumes but I work in the arts and want to beef up my portfolio a bit for hopefully teaching workshops at cons.

I've met a lot of people whom are pretty low key and friendly irl but looking at their pages it's pretty apparent they buy likes. I guess its ok if it helps people deal with their insecurities and not be drama-starters irl. Not everyone is a histrionic like Nigri.

It's clever and cool of them to support local artists, it's cheaper to fly them from Brazil or Japan anyway. I just don't know how much Blasted Mechanism means for the average anime fan.

Can cosplay lead to modeling, ect? Some cosplayer have built up a fan base and started acting (Luna Lanie) and others who are modeling for companies (pic related)
Is it possible to break into modeling from cosplay?
43 posts and 3 images submitted.
>>
It's possible, as you've already posted two examples, but it's highly unlikely. Best way to get paid for stuff like that? Lots and lots of fans. Companies will contact you because they want to use your big fanbase and you cooperate because you want free stuff.
>>
Depends, does it have to do with Niles?

And should it lead to her going to sleep?
>>
If you want to be a model, pursuing actual modeling work will be a hell of a lot faster than hoping cosplay will get you discovered.

If you honestly aren't the traditional model type body or face wise (I'm not trying to be mean I wohld describe myself that way) and you're hoping getting popular with cosplay will get you modeling gigs by association then... it does happen sorta when popular bloggers and instagram users are sponsored by small businesses but it's a really far fetched goal and I'd reccomend setting more useful goals for yourself.

She is the best I've seen. I used to really love Jolie Petite but I ordered a case from her, she fucked up and I never got a completed case or a refund, looking for photos now, sounds like shit went down. But on the positive side, waiting on a YY Kawaii case! I'm so excited.

I still love that group.

>what did you think of 2015 overall in terms of HS cosplays?
I feel like there was a huge drop in the amount of homestuck at cons. Otakon Saturday still had a good amount of cosplayers, but Friday was just pathetic. Maybe the game will give us a second wind, but the current hiatus fells like the nail in the coffin.
>>
And with that I'll just throw it out there that (if there's still interest for it, of course) I'll make my year end review in a week or two, and that if anyone have any new (or old) names they want me to take a look at, I'd like to know about them!

What do you think about themed meet ups?
>>
> How long have you been going to meetups for?
About eight years now.

> What was the best meetup you've ever been to?
That's pretty hard to pick. We've had some really nice ones over the years. The ones I like best are the ones that allow everyone to chat, though. So picnics, high tea, etc.

> Worst?
We had one picnic that people wouldn't let go. Some of us tried to convince the organiser to move it to another day because the weather forecast was dire. It was mid-autumn, and started bucketing down rain in the middle of everyone eating. I didn't even bother wearing a full-on coordinate because I knew it was going to be bad, but wanted to see some of my friends all the same. We ended up going to a restaurant by ourselves when the meet broke up.

> How often does your comm hold meetups?
There's usually at least one a month. Lately, there's been as many as two "large" meets a month, with smaller groups holding more private gatherings as they want.

> Are you satisfied with the amount/quality of meetups that your comm holds? What would you like to change about it?
In general, yes. I do wish fewer people would RSVP and flake, though. That seems to be pretty common with most lolita communities.

> What do you think about themed meet ups?
Depends on the theme. A lot of our meets do themes more as suggestions than mandatory participation. If I have items that suit the theme or have time to come up with something that suits the theme, I'll wear it. If not, I don't stress about it.
>>
>>8764670
>> How long have you been going to meetups for?
only nine months
>> What was the best meetup you've ever been to?
probably our recent ILD meet or our aquarium meet! I like smaller meets but I also enjoy bigger meets where I get to see more people and do something fun.
>> Worst?
I don't think I've been to a bad meet yet! I have been to a couple meets that had a small turnout though. Those weren't bad, just wish there were more people that could've made it.
>> How often does your comm hold meetups?
there's been at least 1 per month as of this past year. I've been in the FB group for longer, and a couple years ago things seemed kinda dead/there was only one meet every few months. I think the comm wants to try hosting 2 a month now that people are more active though.
>> Are you satisfied with the amount/quality of meetups that your comm holds? What would you like to change about it?
even with just one meet a month, yeah I'm pretty happy! I think one is enough for all of us at this point. I hope our comm does go through with trying to host 2 meets a month though - the way we want to do it is 1 sort of informal-ish meet that's just dinner and kind of the "standard" monthly meet like how some other comms do it, and then a second monthly meet that's like the usual rotating theme/location. meets tend to be us doing something, so I think having a more casual meet that's just getting in frills and having dinner with everyone will be nice!
>> What do you think about themed meet ups?
I like them, I think they're fun as long as the theme isn't mandatory; for the meets I've been to or hosted so far themes are just suggested rather than necessary - styles and wardrobe sizes are so varied in my comm I'm not sure if there's enough people with appropriately themed clothes to be able to have a strictly themed meetup that wasn't too small.
