What is AP thinking
For some reason or another AP USA will rerelease Dolly Dot
AP making replicas of themselves now or what?
It restocked on AP's Japanese webshop last week. I thought this print went on sale last year, I'm not sure that they made more of it, maybe they simply found a box of extra sitting in a basement somewhere and tossed a few to AP USA to sell.
Is anyone going to this event? It is such a great idea. I am sad I found this after it was sold out already. I wish there were more creative meetups like this.
This, sounds like a shitshow waiting to happen. Can't wait to see the photos of the garbage food and snacks that give you the shits, and the poorly lit "professional" coord shots. At least the fashion show might be okay since you'll have to pay way too much for an event like this. The downside is that you're stuck using whatever shitty vendors the cruise line uses, for every aspect

Itabag FAQ and Beginners Guide v. 2.1
Read the document first before asking basic questions that have been answered time and time again like "is making a bag for ___ ok?" and "where do i get the heart bags??".
Hoe do you guys build costumes that are like armor? I know there's pepakura, eva foam, and now 3d printing, but there's almost no blueprints or templates for anything other than iron man and Halo suits. I hate how many are comically oversized and just look goofy. Have any of you guys done stuff like that?
Short answer: it's hard.
It's a ton of work, a ton of trial and error, spending hours trying to make patterns that work and having to trash pieces that just won't turn out right.
For most armor foam is the way to go. 3D printed stuff sounds awesome in theory because it sounds easy, but it takes tons of post work to get rid of print lines and seams to make look nice and is fairly fragile. It works best for props, helmets, and detail pieces.
YouTube is a treasure trove of tutorials and how to's on making armor.

Some people claim their cosplay-tier OTT coord is casual.
Some people say it's a poofy brand skirt with a cutsew or t-shirt.
Some people think a Leur Getter dress without petticoat can be casual lolita.
What do YOU think casual lolita is these days?

I wanted to fulfill your request but I also wanted to put in as little effort as possible.
Repost because I forgot to change the transparency on something.
There's a 50/50 chance I'll have the motivation to finish this, so just in case here it is.
Makeup thread is in auto sage so here's a new one.
Recs, inspo, questions, etc.
The last thread reached it's image limit
I was posting screencaps from ANTM cycle 3 when they had a challenge involving Metamorphose and MILK
I'm particularly salty about how rude some of the girls are about lolita, as if they have any style themselves
P.s. my commentary isn't linked to the specific images I'm posting, just the episode in general
This cycle I think is from 2004 and I haven't seen anyone post these before so I thought it might be appreciated even if these screencaps are potato quality
Post and discuss streetsnaps from this year
Hey /cgl/s, anyone going to Anime Mid-Atlantic? It's a pretty cozy con.
I'm interested in holding a meet at the hotel bar at 8pm Friday night. Anyone down?

Summer cons are upon us, good luck to all you anons and make some dosh!
unsure. I'm hoping someone had saved it before it was deleted by whomever had it in their drive.
I'd be more than happy to host it myself if peeps want to repopulate it.
So I wanted to try working with a manufacture again so I submitted an inquiry to Vograce for rubber charms. Decided to order a sample since I didn't want to screw up and end up with 50-100 messed up charms.
The sample was around $50 for the mold,shipping and then I was charged a PayPal fee. Vicky asked me if I wanted to confirm the design before they made the mold. I said sure.
Received the photo and there are two issues. I asked if I could submit a revision and she tells me they already created the mold (why even ask me to confirm if you're just going to do it anyways). The sample had the two errors from before, but. Ow with an addition two errors that were not part of my design or the orinigal mock up they sent me.
I could have possibly lived with the two mistakes since they were bad bad and I could have probably fixed one myself, but they filled in half of my design's face with the outline color..
Good thing I'm ordering early I guess....
Saw this article, what do you guys think of Lobbyconning?
Have you ever done it?
I haven't, but so many cons do feel like paying $60 to sit on the lobby floor talking to friends
Got into a weird fight with some friends over this on FB. None of them have been to anything bigger than a college con so I don't think they really get the culture and vibe if a large con. They insisted that hanging out at a con, even if you're not trying to sneak into events, is stealing. They even claimed that trading off badges is fine because only one person can use them at a time. Didn't have the heart to tell them people sneak badges out for multiple uses.
You mean ghosting? If you don't want to pay the fee then it isn't worth it to you. Don't go. Find a better con with events and guests you want to see. The only people I see complaining about this sort of thing is broke teenagers.
