Last one is in autosage.

I'm going to be making a trip over there in July myself as was wondering if there are any good nail salons that gulls could recommend as well as any nice day spas. Price doesn't matter.

For anyone in the GTA looking to travel to Japan and HK, there's currently a deal for about $621 CAD roundtrip for September and October

>>
>>9606740
Go to tru nail, there are various salons around Tokyo. You can pretty much bring them any picture of a design you want and they'll do it for you - however they are really popular so you'll have to book your appointment either before you leave or right at the beginning of your trip.

>general tips?
- If you plan on making two or more trips by shinkansen, get the JR pass for a week and plan your long distance trips then (it pays itself off just going from tokyo to osaka return, also many lines within osaka and kyoto are JR lines)
- Try to find accomodation near a station on the JR yamanote line, makes life easy getting to all the hot spots such as ikebukuro, shinjuku, shibuya, harajuku and akiba are all on this line.
- Be anal about planning and research, honestly its a really big disappointment when you wanted to do something and then found out you didn't have enough time/got the opening wrong hours/cant get there. Map out your exact routes and where everything is for where you are going *before* you're there, even if you have wifi. Makes things go much much smoother.
- July is summer sale season. If you can plan your trip to be there in the last weekend of July for the la foret grand bazaar sale! It's absolute mayhem but there are so many good deals, and often brands will release lolita special sets in this time.

>where was your favorite spot to visit?
Disneyland and Disneysea were definitely the best, but some other highlights: deer park in Nara, dotonbori river in Osaka, La foret Harajuku, yokohama

>are the girls at the shops in shibuya109 really that big of bitches to baka gaijin?
They were quite cold compared to what I had become accustomed to in Japan, but that could be to do with the fact that I wasn't dressed up or looking particularly nice (too hot to bother) plus it was during the summer sales - they're very busy and probably deal with a lot of shit. Only remember one experience with a shop girl being more than unenthusiastic to serve me.

Someone was talking about being vegan in the last thread, apparently Gaijinpot released a manual on that and it's pretty cheap, might be worth it.

Ask elsewhere, this thread is just going to attract bait and trolls. With all these types of threads, most of the people that genuinely don't care won't even open the thread, so it devolves into arguing between two extremes.

>>9605948
I personally don't have an issue. The only thing that gets me is when people wear things that obviously are too small for them, just because no matter what your size it ends up looking horrible.

/cgl/; Trying a new, and somewhat ambitious project. Wanting to do a Gundam cosplay, doing pic related.

I've done armor cosplays in the past using papercraft as the base, but never this extensive. Thought of trying Pepakura, but can't find a 3d model of the Hyaku Shiki to scan into it.

Any suggestions on where to start?

>>9604998
If you can find a model, take those pieces, scale them up to draw onto foam pieces and play around with that for a base
>>
>>9605008
I've got the model actually. So I should use foamcore to create a base form to work off of then?

By the way, I intend to eventually utilize fiberglass and resin to form the pieces

Check out 'Clive Lee's Gundam/Mecha tutorial' It's a step-by-step process. You don't necessarly have to follow it, but it does give sweet results.

I'm currently starting on Nethergundam and did Nobell Gundam in the past.

Fuck, I have a Griffith wig styled but no finished cosplay. Should I throw something together tonight to take advantage of the opportunity?

don't listen to anyone suggesting there
milanoo is a meme on cgl

you're likely not going to get many honest responses because most of cgl makes their cosplays

Last time I went to an art gallery a woman asked me if my outfit was inspired by Grayson Perry.
>>
>>9600167
There was another anon who was also compared to this guy, is this a common occurrence for UK lolitas? Jesus.
>>
>>9600177
That might have been me but it's happened to one of my friends before as well. I'd understand if they had a Grayson Perry exhibit on or something but it was all fine art.

I can kind of see it for OTT desu but I wasn't even wearing sweet.

Anything I should know about cosplaying as the Producer from CG? Any word of advice is appreciated

First off, I'm glad that you like [email protected], since LL seems more popular with the cosplay scene. However, unless you have a group, no one will recognize you. The "P"-head producer may fare better though

>>9600311
I see, so is there a way I can stand out from just a guy wearing a suit at a con. What about the business card that he uses? Any advice on how to make one?
>>
>>9600556
Your best bet is to embrace it, and keep a number of small accessories on hand to maximize your range.

That is to say, have MIB sunglasses and the mind erasing pen. Have an earpiece and act like secret service. Have a headset and microphone and look like a tv reporter.

Do this and you can pair with many different costumes- and then you can have the cards for when you see your idols.

Dates are August 24th through the 27th at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, IL.

Anyone going? What are your plans? Are you cosplaying? If so, what are you cosplaying as?

>on fence about going
>those badge prices jfc
>get funds
>have to rush order cosplays
I plan on treating this like every other con I go to, ignore panels and just browse the dealer's hall/walk around the area all day and socialize. Pic related for cosplays. But like I said, super last minute so if neither fit, I'll be stuck re-wearing Rarity from MLP for the tenth time. Would only need a trip to the thrift for some nice, white clothing and Arda's physical store for a wig.

I know 2B's dress isn't going to be the right length and I wont even have her sword, but if I'm not bursting at the seams, I'll be happy.

Isn't that con pretty shitty? I heard it was dead last year so I didn't bother applying.

Where do I even begin to learn how to make cosplays? I'm tired of buying cosplays from shitty Chinese websites.

Is there a good place to learn from the ground up? I need to learn everything from makeup to prop-making.

Pic related is my first cosplay from when I was 20.

Rakuten has some cute ones

There's a seller I follow called Ohio Kimono; the woman who runs it is really passionate about authenticity and seems to have fair prices. She sells at conventions but also has a website, so I think you might be able to buy yukata from her site or her Facebook postings.
>>
>>9598212
She has good merch but legit be careful of her because she can be a flaming bitch if you criticize anything about her practices. I saw her blow up at someone who didn't find anything they liked and wanted better quality.

This is my first year not going in 5 years. The cosplay scene isn't crazy awesome but you will never see a whole city open up to a con the way Indy does for gencon.
