Old one saging
Bike is arriving tomorrow.
Had to borrow a toolkit from my lecturer so I can put it back together.
Rest from AliExpress from the 11/11 sale - all pretty generic, apart from the oxblood satchel - from Zatchel UK
Items with hearts are in the mail, everything else is pre-ordered or being made
How did you discover lolita fashion? How did you get into lolita fashion?
I used to do pixel art way back when, and there was a girl (liveloveburndie) who did a lot of lolita pixels. I admired her work and had no idea what lolita was and looked into it from there.
I discovered it in middle school online and I spent hours on Milanoo's site. But my parents were divorcing, so I put it on the back burner.
Once I moved cross country, I went to a convention and saw that there was a lolita panel, and I attended. A year after attending that panel, I purchased my first coord. And I'm apart of that comm now.

Posting properly this time.
>What is Larme Kei?
"I would like to explain what a 'girly' fashion is from my perspective. I will also include some keywords that is used in the magazine [LARME]. As an introduction, I will state what a girly fashion is. According to Japan's 'girly fashion', being 'Dolly' is an important element, and essential. For example, making the legs look long by using a high waist bottoms, and a balance of exposure.*
There will be a contrast of style using frills and flares to show the clear bodyline as well. These methods will emphasize slender waist, neck and legs which leads to an overall 'girly' fashion. Ribbons and check pattern shirts/bottoms are symbolic for 'girly' fashions too. As a fact, there is another fashion style that's beyond 'girly'. In general it's called 'Lolita'.
For the second facts about girly fashion, is the hairstyle. It focuses on the forelock**, and the atmosphere around the face. The cute girl will show the natural type of being girly. The importance of hair color, affects how girly you would want to show out. Instead of bright colours, dark and grey-ish calm color will turn you into a calm and settled person.
As for the facial make-up, natural colors for skins, then add some colour on lips, cheeks and eyes, which will multiply the cuteness. These make ups are a necessity when showing girly faces to people. It will look cute and wanting men to protect you***.
In conclusion, these fashion, make-ups, and hairstyle are my perspective to what a 'girly' fashion is. It is a unique Japanese style of being 'girly' and I guarantee that trying on these types will turn you into a 'girly' girl.
* by "balance of exposure", she's referring to exposing skin
** forlock = bangs
*** I'm fairly sure she is referring to men wanting to protect you, not you wanting it them to.

So I'm planning on making an as accurate version / model of the sniper rifle in pic related for a cosplay, however the con I'm going to says "no metal/funtional/explosive/heavy wooden weapons". How far can you go without compromising the look of the item, and assuming I still want to machine parts from metal, what problems will this logically cause at a con?
>inb4 just foam it
Rather not, planning to keep it later; the more realistic the better.
All opinions here are helpful.
Most cons will say no "heavy wooden weapons" but all my guns are wood and I've never once been flagged for it. At most some cons will make you keep it strapped to your back or something so that other people can't grab it. Just email them in advance about it.
Sadly I didn't make this, I pulled it from the game files of PlanetSide 2. To be quite honest it's a pain in the ass because nothing is in detail, it's just bulky and even the barrel is an extruded decagon. I'm just in the process of measuring everything, and making individual pieces that can be machined/carved/printed.
I've seen cosplayers do events at hospitals in children's wards with great sucess, everybody has fun and the kids really enjoy it.
Does anybody have any advice for how to set something like this up? I'm in a lolita group, but some of them also cosplay. My husband works at a hospital with a fairly large children's ward and I'd love to set something like this up. I won't get anything set up in time for Christmas, but valentines might be cute handing out candy in baskets to the kids in pretty pink dresses.
I just would love some advice and feedback on this, thanks!
I've heard of some Star Wars cosplayers doing charity events and I think cosplaying other characters would be cool, but I don't think lolita would work, personally. It's a fashion, not a costume. If you want to dress up like a princess and have tea with some sick kids, why not just pick a Disney princess they'll recognize? Going in lolita would be like going in goth clothes or even just street clothes. It's another fashion, not a costume.
(As cringy as it sounds) My schools Anime Club is actually scheduling a toy drive and visitation to a local hospital. I'm the vice president and we plan to visit in kid friendly cosplat to play board games, crafting, and do small performances. As for the process to have it scheduled, it has been very easy. You do have to stay in contact and read all the rules and regulations. Right now, especially since its flu season, most hospitals ask for 18+ participants with a small group size of 5-10 people. Also, expect to not always be scheduled on a weekend, especially this close to Christmas.
Tl;dr: get the info, stay in contact, and try it out!
There was a group of itas that started a crowd funder to try to buy burando so they could 'visit sicks kids like princesses' or something.
It's in the archives, unsurprisingly it wasn't well received and didn't fly.
I can see why cosplaying as mainstream characters like The Avengers would be a nice thing to do for the kids, but there needs to be a way of keeping the batshit insane types away from that sort of thing. Can you imagine a rabid Erin Jager getting distraught that a child doesn't recognise their character, doesn't give them asspats from their hosital bed and that keeps misgendering them or whatever?
please help me
i love all
so me and my bf want to try cosplay lewd stuff and he wanted me dressed as tretij rebenok and him as big boss, he already has big boss's stuff so I need help with tretji, anyone knows what exactly he wears and where to find it? I already know the straight jacket but not sure about pants and mask. dumping some pics for reference
I guess the mask is somewhat based on the uk ww2 one, and I cant find any other one that looks similar
Opinions on this group calling themselves a "meido cafe"? They appear at small anime conventionss in Indiana.. and serve instant maruchan ramen
Pic related- it's them

For the longest time, Novala was the default name (for lolitas anyway) when it came to frilly fru-fru reading material. Now? Not so much.
Anyone have a favorite poem or story by him? I've been trying to find his novel Emily but that's been tough shit
I have a Chinese translation of Shimotsuma Monogatari's sequel that I'm about 1/3 into, and it's kind of a dull read. The prose style gets tiresome after a while and there's still a lot of Isobe dicksucking. Momoko's as much of a bitch as before though, which is great.

Be it Insta, YouTube, Twitter, Weibo post your favourite cute/ inspirational /cgl/ related accounts.
I'm looking for some new accounts to follow on Insta, mostly Gothic and Classic lolita, Otome, pretty art/illustration and good cosplayers with work in progress pics.
Some of the accounts I like most :
Art/ Illustration -
You mentioned me on this list, i'm super flattered!
Some lolita instagrams i follow:
tyrianjubilee (classic, otome)
opale.rose (gothic, classic)
francescaosterlund (gorgeous lolita illustrator)
Does anyone else get people who like a bunch of photos but then not follow you?
I'm not desperate for followers or anything, it's just weird to open my IG and find someone has liked almost half of my posts (not hard, because I'm pretty new and only have like 40 posts) but then doesn't follow. I've had this happen a few times with different people, just today I had someone like almost 20 of my posts and comment on about 8 but then doesn't follow.
I just find it odd and don't understand the reason, I guess from my PoV, if it was me and I liked that many posts on an account, I would usually follow it.

Last thread was saging.
It's been a while since we've had some selfposts- Show makeup tests, hall shots, WIPs, or just say what you're working on to help get the thread started. (pic not related, just grabbed from last thread)
I was just cleaning out photos on my phone and realized bought the fabric to make Pearl over a year ago. I have the bottom half of the costume done, but I've lost a lot of motivation with how the fandom has been going.
People who loose interest in something because of a fandom are weak.
You realize that everything you like is also liked by crappy people? Are just gonna stop liking everything then? Treat yourself better than that anon
let's try not to double post
Ok people, try to make a NORMAL cosplay thread
talking in english
Try to talk about spanish cons and cosplayers.
What do you think is the best Con in spain?? I think that Barcelona is not the same that some years ago..
This year I visited a lot of cons and I think that Murcia SeRemanga or Ficzone are two greatest con too
The only bad thing is the international constest all in BCN and Jointo
post the best costumes you saw there.
This guy even had red el wire inside to give that grim red glow in the eyes
