Anyone thinking about doing a cosplay of ballerina Pearl?

We've hit July and here come in the influx of Florida cons for the summer.

Orlando Anime Day 7/15
Supercon 7/27-7/30
TBCC 7/28-7/30
Metro 8/3-8/6
Mizucon 8/25-8/27
SakuraNatsu 8/26

Which cons will you be going to? Cosplay plans, event excitement/disappointment

>Three cons a month
Damn, Florida
The miracle is that's spaced out this year lol. Last year July had Metro, Ancient City, AFO, Supercon, Lamecon. The state is saturated af with cons
Didn't last year have like 3 or 4 cons happening the same weekend? I don't think any of them were more than 3-4 hours away from each other too.

Let's have a sort of positive thread here. Tell us about you lolita goals. They can be big or minor, doesn't matter. Also, if you feel like bragging about something good that happened to you (lolita related), feel free to tell us here:

>Goals related to your clothes and wardrobe (buying more pieces, getting a more cohesive wardrobe, selling pieces, getting better at coording, etc)
>Social goals you might have in the fashion (meeting more lolitas, hosting an event, going to a large tea party, etc.)
>Personal goals you have related to the fashion (losing weight, getting a new haircut, become more knowledgeable in the fashion, save more money, etc.)
>Goals that you're currently working on
>Goals that you're hoping to start working on soon or in a future
>Goals that you have already been able to achieve within the fashion

Last thread has gone off the rails big time.

I don't know if I want to dedicate myself to learning Japanese and realize my full weeb potential or if I should go for another language like French or Spanish that would actually help me in real life. I know I can learn more than one, but I don't know which one to prioritize... If I learn Japanese, it seems like it'll be much easier to practice since I can look up raws of manga/anime and practice with other weebs at cons. Spanish I could practice with coworkers (I live in Texas). French I could practice with two of my fluent friends. I just... dunno...

Japanese would only be useful in my hobby, so it doesn't seem like it's worth it. Anyone else wanna weigh in on this?
French will be less useful than Japanese, unless you intend to move to a French speaking country. At that point you might as well learn something at least relevant to your hobbies.

Spanish is dead useful, though so that's also a good choice.

Hi CGL! I plan on cosplaying Alice. I want my costume to be accurate to the 1951 movie. This includes having a large, bell shaped skirt.

Only detail I'm not sure of at this point is if I should get my poof from a bunch of petticoats or a hoop skirt + petticoat. My preference is on the hoop skirt: it'll easily create the shape I want and works well in the Texas heat. In addition, Alice in the 1951 movie is apparently wearing a hoop skirt to support her dress. All of my friends I've talked to have supported the hoop skirt idea.

I am considering ordering the 42 cm hoop skirt from Divinity Doll, even though it costs $150. I would layer my Malco Modes 582/Jennifer over that.

Use the help thread
There should be an active help thread.

Also Alice would be wearing a petticoat, not a hoopskirt. Even the official disney park costume uses a petticoat.

Didn't see the help thread from 8/15. My bad.

I've seen the parks costume. I think it uses some starched fabric/linen petticoat. I think a regular nylon or chiffon petticoat would be fine under my costume though. Part of me thinks 1951 Alice appears to be wearing a hoop skirt because it was easier to animate than 4-6 layers of petticoat.

Anyone have any neat /cgl/ related shows, preferably in Japanese since I'm trying to up my language game by watching non-animu stuff without subs? The Doll Life was okay but obviously scripted as fuck and felt like it was made by interns. Something like that would be very easy for Japanese learning though.

Oh thanks, I remember this was on my to watch list from a while ago because I thought the characters were cute and I forgot about it.
I'm so confused. You want Japanese shows related to /cgl/ that... aren't anime? You do realize the c in /cgl/ is cosplay. Which is pretty much all anime, besides the superheroes and whatever. There's been threads for lolita in shows/movies already, so I really don't get what you're looking for here.

With Abunai coming up it's once again time to have a little meet. This year I will actually be there myself so things should go smoothly. If you're interested in meeting up please fill in this Strawpoll so I can decide what day and time works best: http://www.strawpoll.me/13706967
Once I've had enough replies I'll post the full plan here in the thread later on.
I also more have an issue with this, rather than nudity. But even people with full costumes can look rather out of place. Take those biker Sailor Moon cosplayers for example, that have this "imma bad bitch" attitude, even though the real senshi are a lot more gentle and feminine (even the tomboy ones).

I guess that's the most important thing. If your cosplay isn't canon, at least try to do something that suits the canon character. With lingerie and bikini cosplay I've seen both a lot of hits and misses with this.
At the risk of sounded gatekeep-y, I get the feeling a lot of the people who do this don't really know or care about the characters they're cosplaying. They pick a character because of their design or because they're popular and don't bother with that character's backstory or personality. You often see people like this posing very OOC too, because what matters to them is looking good in their cosplay and they don't care about portraying the character accurately. If someone wants to get in on that Sailor Moon fandom but knows that the regular senshi outfits have been done hundreds of times, they'll go for a "sexy" or "badass" version to stand out from the crowd, not because they think that's what the character would actually wear. It probably doesn't even occur to them to take that into consideration because the character itself is not a priority, standing out is.

Who is going, what are you cosplaying as, did you book a room in time? [I didn't! :(]

I'm just attending for one day. Anime Fest really doesn't have enough programming for me to warrant going the whole weekend, plus it's only $50 for a Friday only pass so that's not bad at all. Cheaper than a concert, that's for sure.
I'm going Friday/Saturday. I'm down to hangout.

I may go all day Thursday and the morning/afternoon of Friday with some friends from work. It's a 1.5 hour drive from my place and I have work that weekend so no room for me. I didn't take off work, so I decided to just leave it up to fate as to whether I attend or not. No cosplays planned, but I kind of want to dress up as a generic seifuku-wearing schoolgirl. I just get a feeling I might be creepy as I'm a 23 year old (at least I have a baby face?).

Military Gear Cosplay General /mgc/
>Here we go again/The Lord Edition

This thread is to talk about cosplays involving Gear, to help each other with identification and to improve on ourselves. Please keep strictly military topics to /k/ or strictly airsoft topics to /asp/.

Metal Gear, STALKER, Resident Evil Fan? Or something completely different? Feel free to check out this thread.


Feel free to submit new shops, to improve the experience. I will then update the pastebin.

Pic related is me, first time fitting some of the stuff for Tachanka. Clearly not done, but I like the way this is going. Now waiting for the next Greyshop order to arrive.

Sick cosplay dude
Thanks man, but I hope you'll enjoy the results much more!

To be a bit of a samefag:
>Do you work on any gear related cosplays at the moment?
Still Tachanka, waiting for a package from the Motherland. Also thinking about Fuze, but it's a thing for the future.
>Should this become a regular thread?
I very much do hope so. /k/ isn't exactly the right place for it, /asp/ is cancer.
>Have you enjoyed the last thread? Anything I can do to improve it?
Well, get people in here faggot
>Are you going to attend Gamescom? If so, with what cosplay?
Tuesday: Nick Rye from Far Cry 5
Wednesday: Not sure yet, at the moment.
Thursday: Venom Snake
Friday-Saturday: Tachanka
I'm a bit of a sucker for Ubi currently.
>also: Have you ever improved your Cosplay over time?
My Snake really has come quite a way, people would probably not notice, but I'm happier with it now. I'll receive a bunch of Russian VSS Pouches soon, as they resemble the ones from ingame closer than the actual M56 US Pouches.

So i'm considering of moving up towards the north (Rhode island) And I was wondering how the con scene is up there? I may consider of going to cons like Otakon,NYCC and Maybe Pax East. but those are all the major cons. How's the smaller con scene look like I? I'm from florida and I know that florida somewhat has a shoddy reputation for being nothing but drama. so i'm just curious to how it's like up there?

If you're into anime cons and are willing to travel a couple hours, the scene is pretty great. All the states are pretty small and every state has at least one so there's a ton of variety. I lived there for around five years, briefly moved away, and was kind of slapped in the face with how few cons there were in my new area. Really happy to be back in the northeast. Off the top of my head there's Katsucon, Connecticon, Another Anime Con, Anime Boston, Colossalcon East, Portcon, a lot of tiny university cons, and all the ones you mentioned that are pretty accessible coming from New England. OG Colossalcon and the cons in Toronto and Quebec also attract a lot of northeasters if you're willing to go farther.
Good stuff my man. Ill keep those in mind.
Welcome to the motherfucking pit
But honestly yeah what >>9608251 said. You're going to see cons that have a little of everything up here, save for comic-cons/PAX for obvious reasons.
Welcome again

When handsewing, is there a technique to keeping your stitch length consistent enough for topstitching other than, say, marking every eighth of an inch along a line?
7 posts and 2 images submitted.
Sew it with a machine using clear thread or thread that matches the fabric, then do your hand topstitching over it using the machine stitches as guides for length. Otherwise it takes just lots of practice to get consistent at hand sewing.
Ooh, I'd never thought of that. Thanks anon!
Mark the length on your finger with sharpie for a quick reference
