I have always been fascinated by the different kinds of Jfash out there. However, I don't feel that knowledgeable. I want to know more about the styles and the people who wear them on a daily basis.
Is there room in the Jfash world for taller, fuller figured woman? Not a fattie by a long shot, just bit thicc in comparison to the girls who I typically see in the fashions I am most interested in. I love larme kei, otome kei, lolita, mori, etc. Basically all those soft pastel looks (I guess)
Sorry if this comes off as ignorant, I just would like to know more, and tumblr is so fuckin warped.
Will be dumping pictures I find particularity aesthetically appealing from my collection to get the ball rolling.
Anyone have any experience with Bonne Chance? Those prices and styles have me hype, but also I'm very cautious of quality.
Last thread hit 300 replies (yay!) So new thread time going to start by dumping this weeks valentines
Who did your favorite style swap for the amino challenge?
Again self posts are always encouraged
I think my favourite was probably Reina, she did amekaji really well imo. I'd have liked to see more gals with really established styles do it, it's more interesting to see it from well-known gals. Still though, it was good to see so many people do it. I hope there'll be more challenges!

Reposting from old thread as it was posted after bump limit:
Would you class a print that's faded in the wash as minor damage or major damage on LM? Obviously I'd clearly declare it in the description. It's barely noticeable and even all over, which makes me think minor (I wouldn't have even noticed if I didn't have the matching headbow to compare), but the fact that the entire garment is faded makes me think major.
personally i'd say it depends on how faded it is. if you're wearing both the garment and the headbow and can see a clear distinction between the two in the mirror then i'd go with major.
I am looking for a person to commission a cosplay from in the future but I have had horrible experiences in the past from commissioners. What are your commission horror stories? Who do I definitely need to stay away from?
Can you suggest female characters that are wearing a mask?
Depends if you want full or partial.
I'm pretty sure there's a bunch of vocaloid ones you could do, and then there's also Lucina from Fire Emblem.
Cardcaptor Sakura also wears a partial mask in the second movie during the stage play.
The waderers from the game Journey have full masks but are usually depicted as genderless.
Persona 5 has a bunch of characters, again with partial masks, Mortal Kombat, The beauty and beast corps from metal gear solid in their beast forms.
Thats just a few from the top of my head.
I saw this theory on tumblr and I am curious what others think.

The only coord I liked from this girl was the one with the irregular choice shoes, and even that was pretty basic. She needs to change the legwear, black polka dot stockings would be cute, get some nicer quality lace gloves and a jacket that actually fits her and this will be passable. Maybe blend her makeup a bit more too.
So did anyone else go to MTAC today or yesterday in Nashville? This con really has devolved into a total shit show. I really hoped it could be different this year, but its just another failcon. Thoughts?
Avoided it completely when I found out they were still at the Sheraton went 2 years ago and felt like a fucking sardine. I won't be back until they move to a larger venue or shrink down to akaicon size. I love MTAC it was my first con experience and it was a lot of fun but I miss the convention center.
I knew they were in trouble this year when it took them months to sell out the sheraton.
So how bad was it this year? Inaccessible dealer room? Packed hallways?
As usual since they cant go to a bigger venue its heavily crowded, a lot of the panels were poorly put on, and they didnt consistently enforce the rule about not lining up earlier than 1 hour for main room events. This con has become less about Anime and Japanese culture and more about getting fucked up with your friends.
Yo, any suggestions for panelists that deserve guest status? I'm looking for new talent to bring quality stuff to the table. Cost isn't an issue so suggestions from both coasts of the country are cool. Links are helpful!
Show Us You Pokeballs (Midwest) is a terrible group to bring. They wanted too much money for the amount of trouble they caused us. A nearby con picked up Manly Battleships (East Coast), so we might go with them next year as well.
Didn't see a league thread in the catalog. Post your good, bad, and whatever is in between.
Also -- taking bets to see which trainwreck drags her mouth-breathing bf into cosplaying Rakan while she does a horribly rushed rendition of qt Xayah
So let's talk about OzCC. What did you think of the Cosplay Active and Championships of Cosplay entries from Adelaide this weekend?
Let's talk about the shitfest that was the championships
When you say 'shitfest that was the championships' do you mean this?
- cosplay and lolita welcome
- please list your location and any shipping restrictions you have
- leave contact info you actually check!
General buying and selling tips:
- have feedback ready if you can
- have proof pictures ready
- always ship with tracking
- never do a transaction with someone you're uncomfortable with
- don't name & shame without contacting the buyer or seller first
Old thread in autosage
1. use the template
2. make four suggestions for other people if you want them for yourself
OP where's yours?
I'm not a looker, sorry lol.
Promise I'll response to at least the next five people tomorrow morning. (Please no Touko suggestions from DR thank you!)
I think that you would make a super good Sucy!
I'm a guy going to a convention in a month and I got no time to make a good cosplay.
Recommend a character whose outfit is simple and I can just buy it off eBay right now.
A month is plenty of time to make a costume as long as you don't pick something with crazy armor. I sew most of my costumes in a matter of a few hours as long as they're just clothes, and i work 12 hours a day at two jobs plus I spend 12ish hours every week doing sports on a team. Sage for this stupid fucking thread.

Yeah, and Einstein figured out how stars work so I guess I should too.
I AM NOT YOU.
