>tfw wears lolita
>tfw my name is actually Alice
Sometimes I absent mindedly answer "yes?" at someone passing by saying "hey Alice" or wonder how they know my name/almost ask them then realize they meant Alice in Wonderland.
Also once I had to catch a train but really had to go to the bathroom first (drinking so much iced tea before wasn't a good idea)and I did it in a rush, coming out with the back of my dress up and my petticoat for everyone to see. Until a nice old lady told me my dress was up. I wanted to crawl in a hole.
Was at a fancy dinner party with coworkers for the holidays, so naturally I was in lolita. They all know I wear it so it's nice to be able to wear it without getting swarmed with questions. However there was also every lolitas arch nemesis at the party: fabric covered chairs. Managed to take about seven chairs out during the night knocking over many a handbag and jacket. I would have taken a petti off but I only had a useless tiny clutch with me and with valet parking getting back to the car was out of the question. I was having childhood flashbacks to playing minesweeper the entire night.
What are they thinking with those 90 dollar tickets though?
I was going to, and thought jeez, with that high af ticket price.
What made me decide not to was the hotel prices, and how far it is from Houston now. I loved it before, one of my favorite cons
so I am being roped in to an Overwatch cosplay with a friend to do a Strike Commander Morrison but i have no idea how to make the Armour is there a template i can use for it that i can get from some where?

Any other seagulls at OMGcon?
I've always wanted to go to ComiCon and this year I've got the chance to got to it. I also plan on going to Anime Weekend Atlanta.
However I can't find a costume and I'm sure it's too late to build one. I'm not sure who to go as for them. I'm tall (6'4") and well built. Above average in the muscles dept. The character I cosplay as needs to have a helmet or mask for reasons.
Anyone able to kick me in the right direction?
It's a "questions that don't deserve their own thread" thread. Post the question there, people with knowledge will often browse those threads for people like you who are new

Who's planning on going?
I'm hoping they will do a good job, but at the same time, they have really large shoes to fill of they're ever going to live up to Sandusky Colossal.
If you've ever been to Colossal before the attendance boom in 2013, it'll probably feel a lot more like that. It will be smaller, and probably stay that way due to Dragoncon being so close even though that's at the opposite end of the cost. I think it's a good thing though. less crowd stress, less parking stress, less stress on staff.
Cosplay and panels probably won't be amazing but still not awful, but con-run programming should still be fun. Can't really speak on the game room or rave since there's little info, but I'm sure they'll still be enjoyable.
Overall the vibe should be the same and that's what counts.
Two hot tub bars. I'm so hype about the ravecave.
I couldn't go to main ColossalCon so when I heard about East I got all excited and jumped on my friend's room offer. I'm taking my little brother as well, we're both very excited and planning our cosplays!

LESS THAN ONE MONTH
What are you cosplaying?
Are you seeing any of the concerts?
What/who are you excited for?
How's your wallet looking?
4 concerts plus everything else means I'm not going to be sleeping much this year
Casual reminder to not go to any AX /cgl/ meetups, they're filled with thirsty crossboarding autists and shitposters looking for a /cgl/ gf
wondering who this Rikku FFX cosplayer is from anime north 2003?
Hi, I don't see a thread on here for Shironuri! Gotta fix that!
Post your favorite artists/ coordinates/ makeup looks/ anything your heart desires.
Any tips for even white makeup? Anyone have anything add to the Kryolan TV Paint Stick v.s. Mehron Cream Blend stick debate?
Could you suggest some recognizable, good looking armor? I cast aluminum, and I am going to make a good chestplate and pauldrons, but If i just make my own design, i cant really con with it. /v/ or /co/ like? or should i make my own design of a recognizable character?
as someone who has worked in a non ferrous foundry for a few years ill tell you now that a cast chest plate will most likely look like garbage if done at home with out proper casting gear, and it will also not look like amour is supposed too, if i where you id go for some thin alloy plate (or thin sheet steel if really keen) and rivet it together, it will be faster, easier and cheaper as some one who also makes armor for for roman reenactors as a side job
bad cosplays? bad cosplays.
post costumes that make you wonder, "why did they think this would be a good idea?"
case in point: 'sexy rick and morty'.
Sup /cgl/. I need help identifying an outfit component. Anyone recognize the gloves in this picture? Also general tactical cosplsy thread.
About a month away...
Who's going, what are you wearing, and what are you hyped for?
I used to go (years ago) and stopped because the way they organized the reg line got awful, and because the staff started getting snotty and pushy as years progressed. Also one year there were like a million dr. who panels and almost nothing else.
Lol a staffer walked right by a flat chested girl dressed as Yoko in a very skimpy bikini to tell my busty friend dressed as Yoko in a full coverage bra to change. Really solidified my decision to not come back for a few years. I'm interested to hear if it's gotten better.
Not at all. It's my home con but I think this may be my last year at least for a little while. They've closed off more and more over the years to the point you can't even walk down the outdoor stairs without needing a badge. The artist alley is slowly withering away because of the high prices for a table and being put towards the end of the dealer's room. Unless the guests and main events are for you, it isn't worth it.
