We still have a Discord going on. Why not join us at https://discord.gg/RgaEYeK and say hi?
Coscraft's order is still not in after a week so I really hope it's delivered before animecon.
I choose to go sunday though, I think saturday tickets are very overpriced, and I really can't get the most out of it all the way to midnight anyway.
Any recommendations for a beginner anime con in NL? I've been repressing my inner weebiness for years but now that I finally have confidence/monies/time I'd like to embrace it and try cosplay, but I don't have any friends to take me to a con and the bloodbath talk in these threads is a bit intimidating. What's a good con for someone who's 25+ but a con newbie, more interested in experiences than merch, and not quite prepared to shank a bitch for tickets or a hotel room?
Have you ever seen someone attempt something and you know right off the bat they don't know some precious detail that would help them?
Ex: This Serenity dress maker should know half pearls are a thing and look much neater and nicer when designing her bodice.
My first attempt at a Yoko wig was with a super long wig and trying to put it up in a high ponytail and keep it that way. I literally found out about clip-ins the week after the wig came in the mail.
Yeah that happens. Sometimes you just have no clue a thing exist.
It's why I try and talk about helpful items anytime costume talks happen. Fray check, loop turners, tailor's ham, bone creaser, ect are things people have no idea about and they are so helpful.

She has finally listened to our pleas. Bets on whether or not she'll make the whole thing or flop like her Sombra test?
reposting some good ones from last thread
What are some brands that are used for lolita coords but don't call themselves a lolita brand?
Or brands that are really popular with lolitas when they're not wearing "full" lolita? Why do you think they are popular with lolitas?
VW is one of the obvious ones that even influenced lolita
Neb aaran do is often sold at shops that mainly sell lolita, but I don't think they see themselves as a lolita brand or attend lolita related events in Japan, do they? They don't have the typical silhouette but they have the quality and aesthetic.
While I was shopping around for home insurance, I started thinking about the value of my wardrobe and what I'd want to happen to it after I died. I thought fellow seagulls might find that interesting to discuss.
Would your family and friends know what to do with your dresses if you died right now?
Have you made a will and included what happens to your wardrobe in it?
Which dress from your wardrobe would you want to be buried/ cremated in?
I'd gift a few dream dresses to close friends, and probably get them or my family to sell the rest since I have such a huge collection that it just wouldn't be practical for anyone to hang onto it
You're gonna have to prey it from my cold dead hands.
But seriously, I do wish to be buried in one of my dresses (in a complete coord) but if I die, I would want my family to sell it all on the internet (it's mostly not so popular older Baby/AP stuff)so this way it'll cover some or most of the funeral expenses as I wouldnt want them to pay for it fully. If there is money left they can do whatever they please and treat themselves. I hope that they sell it mostly to my friends so they can rock that brand and have the pieces they liked in my wardrobe.

Summer cons are upon us, good luck to all you anons and make some dosh!
Is it normal for Vograce shipping to be absolutely insane? I've been quoted $40 shipping on 40 small can badges, surely that's not right? The person I was talking to doesn't seem willing to offer other shipping options.
Ah man, i was unfortunate to post right when a new thread was made. Reposting for sake of repost!
I will be tabling with a friend, but it was a last minute thing. We have TOTALLY different styles my art is digital and animu whilst hers is like traditional sketches of monsters (think giger but less detailed) and cartoons. I also have 2x the merch than her...we are sharing a table and it was because it's my first time not tabling at a local con and it freaked me out, but my friend said she would be down to table with me. Uhh would our vast difference in styles and merch affect each other's sales negatively??? I'm glad I have a friend to be with, but reading these past posts now worry me about sales...

My gf is starting to not want to do cons. She likes anime and games, likes cosplaying, likes partying and stuff, but after this last con being a little less cool than the year before it she doesn't want to do the next con I have an artist table at.
She was going to make ribbons and little accessories and stuff, but I guess they aren't turning out good because she's talking like she isn't even going to request the time off of work and the deadline is approaching.
I never make her pay for her hotel space, so it's not going to damage me there, but I don't think the con will be as fun without her. I've been to a few without her since dating her and they all ended up feeling listless. I walk around with some friends if they're there but she is just fun to stick with for the long run.
Also, cosplay sex is my Big Kink and she only ever gets fully suited up for cons. Sometimes she throws me a bone and wears the outfits at home but she goes all out with makeup and wigs at cons and being able to drag her off when the hotel is empty and mess her up a little is one of my favorite parts of any con.
We click in like every way other than her libido being like a quarter of mine, and neither of us are interested in breaking up or anything, but I'd really like to help keep her interested in cons.
She's a little bit hard to get info out of regarding her feelings, but she said stuff like she thinks she's too old and she's worried about requesting time off even though they are months apart.
Old one is saging
Starting where we left off: Talking about filthy disgusting people who post pictures to social media of their nasty floors and rooms.
Pic related, seems Tuna-chan didn't have enough junk laying around for her liking.
She wants $350 for stained sweaty holy lantern along with hair clip and dirty tights
How could she think that it costs as much as one in mint condition?
I wouldn't give even $200 for this nasty crap
Is there an official /cgl/ discord?
It would be nice to have a community to chat with instantly instead of posting
In honor of Tekken 7 coming out, show me some good Lucky Chloe cosplays.
