JRPG cosplay thread, post pics and comments/progress if you're working on something.
Also what groups would you like to see/do?
This was mentioned in another thread that I think is dead now (??), but definitely more rf/harvest moon (pic related). Planning on making a Raven cosplay from RF3, but who knows when that will get done. More of a dream I guess.
Con is in two weeks let's talk about it!
Denver is gonna be packed beyond all measure because of Taste of Colorado and the first football game of the season.
Halloween is just three months away, gulls. Have you started planning your outfit(s)?
Post Halloween inspired coordinates from any fashion
Previous thread in autosage, new larp thread
All the fucking mud edition. (seriously, fuck the mud)
also finally I have nicer pics from one of the guys who were also in the Landsknecht camp on Drachenfest
Yes, I'm the same anon who started the university thread last month. But this time, I would like it if you guys were to share experiences on wearing lolita to university or school, typical reactions you get, and what you typically tend to wear to classes. It would help if you specify your major or department, or what kind of school or college you go to.
I'm planning on wearing lolita for the first time tomorrow to my university classes. My uni is a huge state one and there's all kinds of people, plus people already know me as someone who dresses out of the norm, but it still makes me nervous cause I have no idea what to expect. I'm in my second year as an art major btw.
>typical reactions you get
Got compliments/questions, sometimes a passing yelling person if i was off campus, and stares.
probably some secret pics and being made fun off covertly, but nothing that I noticed.
>what you typically tend to wear to classes
as for lolita I used to wear really sweet outfits. even pink wigs sometimes. I never got harassed.
>your major or department, or what kind of school or college
I was liberal arts, at a state school.I live in a pretty liberal state, If that means anything.
I would say start as casual as possible if you are nervous. build up to flasher things when you get more comfortable
I go to a big state uni, majoring in psych. I wear sweet, and sometimes classic. People think it's really cute, and it's a good conversation starter for people to come up to me and ask about what I'm wearing. The professors have talked to me about it and seemed really interested and entertained. Of course, you get some strange stares as to be expected. I haven't had a negative interaction yet, though. Don't get lazy and wear ita coords though. Plan your coord the night before or just don't wear lolita if you don't have time to make it look decent.
Last thread is autosaging
12 more days until Wed. is the new Thursday.
These threads never seem all that busy for such a huge con. Is it because it's not focused on anime as much as other ones CGL attends, or harder / more expensive to attend?
Fuck yeah DragonCon
What upcoming cons are you planning to attend?
What cosplays do you currently have on the go?
Cosplans for the upcoming cons?
Also dump any dramu if need be
Don't derail it this time part 2.
I love steam lolita
Ok, you do you. I think it's mostly uggo, but I will accept once people learn to pull it off well (and that's gonna be a challenge), because I'm not a boring asshole and new ideas are welcome imo as long as they're executed well.
>Lolita looks better with natural haircolors, especially if the hair is styled well. Only a few "unnatural" colors are good if they're toned down a bit, but the ultimate best is natural tones.
>I don't get wigs. They're tacky and make this fashion look like a costume in 9,9/10 cases.
>I hate overly simplified dresses that are emphasized on print instead of structure and frill. I loved some of the slightly newer AP and BtssB releases people called burando lace monsters, that kind of designs look fun to me.
>I love Elizabeth OP and I think it beats a lot of newer releases AND currents of this fashion in cuteness. (don't know if this is unpopular though ???)
>Some thigh high boots are ok in lolita if you know how to pick and use them.
>Erololita is underappreciated and very badly treated. I hate to see when people try to do it and all they do is either shorten everything or wear lingerie or ugly corsets that are too long for skirts instead. Gurl no. More tasteful erololita is closer to gothic but spiced up with things like sheer fabric in the sleeves, gloves, thigh high boots and more mature make up. People get it so wrong and I'm pissed.
>People seem to diss the bodyline Old School set L082 but I like it. It's a good set, it's cute and the quality isn't really bad enough to warrant so much hate. The headdress though is unbearable, I'd rather have a rectangle hairdress with it. Other than that there's nothing wrong with that set and I don't get the whole dislike against old school.
I hope I made sense.
>Lolita looks better with natural haircolors
How is this unpopular though? Most people on here think that
I don't think that it necessarily has to look better, but it's much easier to match with a coord, and lots of people who wear unnatural colored wigs are itas who thinks it's okay because it's "kawaii uguu"
I like it when people incorporate offbrand/non-lolita items to their coords.
Are you sure you are a lolita? You seem to think it pretty much all wrong on what is popular and what is unpopular.
The only thing I've seen so far is that staff members told vendors that attendance would be a minimum of 1,000 people and at least one staff member claimed that attendance oils reach as high as 8,000. According to a vendor, the actual attendance was likely around 200.
Old thread is about to hit the bump limit. What do you have coming in the mail gulls?
Two cute blouses, a ponytail clip-on, and a pink bag with a clear front panel. Also debating buying some dresses and skirts, but I'm trying to not give my wallet a reason to strangle me in the night and run away.
Now have these coming. Found out about the blue bootleg and just had to get it, along with the red bootleg.
I have three. A laptop bag, the DX Botw Link, and a 20 pc. Blind bag of resin molds. The molds and bag should be here tomorrow, the Link is coming from Japan so who knows when it'll be here.

I need some help finding some cute ways to tie up my hair that doesn't cause breakage. I feel like whenever I use normal accessories like hair ties or bobby pins, I can hear my hair snapping when I take them out. Any suggestions?
Good Morning Australia. Maybe log off for a bit and come back tonight for the majority of posters.
There's hair acessories that don't damage, but it depend's on what hair styles you do. What styles do you like to wear the most?
Hoping this is /cgl/ related because it's a Japanese crane game app where you can get anime & game merch, plushies, and Japanese household items.
Any other players or former Toreba addicts?
spent 30 dollars to get a figurine. didn't get it. the next person got it on their first try
With all the shape shifting and transformation that comes with cosplay how do you stay in sync with who you are inside? Does being an artist affect how you see yourself? Personally, cosplay has kinda made me feel faceless.. like a blank canvas.. and I've lost a grip on who I am outside of cosplay.. does this mean cosplay is my identity? anyone else feel the same?
