I've tried shaving my body in the past but that did not go well at all. I've stuck to trimming my legs so the hair isn't visible but grows back quickly so I can pretend to be a normie.
Which brand did you use? I've been considering using nair for some time now
Need some advice on speaking like a guy while in crossplay, other than just "keep your voice low"
I meant more like stuff like vocal expression. I didn't grow up around guys so it's hard for me to imitate what I know
Old thread reached image limit.
New England thread?
I'm kind of new to this but would like some sort of thread like this. Discuss any cons or cosplay scenes in or nearby New England (East Canada and East NY welcome).
I can start. Anyone else going to Anime Boston?
I might go to AB, but I doubt I'll make a weekend out of it.
Me and some buddies are saving up for a trip to Japan, and the past two years kinda sucked. Long lines, an increasingly irritated volunteer staff, and the crowd seems to get younger and younger.
Seems like all the staple cons are running into big problems. Connecticon blew last year and why even go to AAC when they're threatening to kick people out for room parties?
I want to love AB since its run well but their venue sucks so bad... Security is just making it worse every year. When is it moving to BCEC?
Also Arisia is coming up this weekend, any gulls planning on going? Probably going to to for Saturday at least.
Going to AB but just for Sat. I tend to enjoy the cons even if they seem to be getting more and more like line con but then again I'm usually there in lolita and usually there to shop and for panels.

Black dude here, Who can I cosplay as?
Old thread. >>9368587
Share those cosplay and lolita-related feels, my gulls.
I suspected that I was a little old for my comm, and then someone posted this.
25+ comm where?
Couldn't find one in the catalog, so new help thread.
What the best glue to use for 3D printed plastic?
Can I buy a tailors mannequin pre-owned. Is spraying it down with some cleaning/disinfectant/bleach/what have you enough to make sure it's clean?
Also I've seen trouser dummies. Can I still use one of them for dresses?
How can I get the people in my cosplay group to get more serious about cosplay. I started a cosplay group because coordinated cosplay looks cool and grabs attention.
It seems like I am the only one that is taking the group seriously though. There was a 6 month window to get cosplay done, now it's like 3 weeks until con and the other group members still don't have an idea of what they want to do.
Should I just leave the group? They are my friends though.
What do you guys think of con raves and concerts. Do you go in costume?
The general attendee hotel block is opening in about 2 weeks. Who's going?
>Favorite places to eat nearby?
>Recs on which hotels are better?
>Who are you hoping for as guests?
This is my first time ever going to AX, hope it lives up to the hype.
This will be my third year I think at the Bonaventure. I have to start working on my cosplay now if i hope to finish it by then...
>This is my first time ever going to AX, hope it lives up to the hype.
Where you coming from? And it definitely will.
I'm planning to cosplay at Liverpool comic con. What's the best superhero cosplay to do?
I enjoy a variety of Batfamily members and have been considering cosplaying Nightwing or the Red Hood but have no idea to get accurate costume stuff.
Have you guys cosplayed superheros? Feel free to post below.
There's one super-hero who really needs to be done more at cons.
I actually enjoy western comics more than anime and cosplay almost exclusively from comics. Unfortunately this board isn't populated by many cape cosplayers. I'll dump some of what I have.
AP, it's time to take a break.
Anyone have any knowledge on the indie Heaven's Atrium? Their past items on their site are blegh, their Facebook nice enough until I saw the awful moddeling, but I'm seriously digging their new JSK. But are they an alright indie?

Had an issue with this exchange last year that made me bitter and not want to do secret santa, but then I felt sad that I didn't do that so now my ass is crawling back. SH, please please don't abandon us like last year's WD anon did. I don't think there were actually too too many people who had issues but I know there were a couple people in the last thread last year who were still trying to get in contact with them (myself included) and they just never responded.
I am looking into doing a crossdressing cosplay of Yukari From Girls und Panzer, I have my costume picked out, but I don't know anything about sizes, unwanted bodyhair, Hair styling, Makup.
Please Help me become a Cute Trap
That jacket looks horrible... The cut and material are so cheap looking. Sizing is easy, get a dressmaker tape and measure yourself. Use the size chart on the website. Shave your legs and face. Buy a wig. You don't need much makeup to cosplay her, just foundation, powder, and a light blush
Saw one awhile ago, and thought it might be time for a new one! Basically you post what you're considering buying and gulls tell you their opinion.
I'm currently deciding between
>Toy Parade skirt in black, would match most of what I own
>Dream Fantasy salopette in black, would match a lot of what I own, & is cheapest
>Cotton Candy Shop salopette in sax, would match almost none of my shoes or tights but I would be able to twin with my loli bff (most expensive option)
help me gulls.
Fanworld is bringing out Calssara from Germany? Its on their facebook
I mean, it's fucking Niagara Falls. There's pretty nature shit but you're gonna be surrounded by tourists. Also to be honest, it's a pretty shitty place (at least the American side).
I'm just sitting here wondering which one of Western NY's finest is gonna be the guest of honor this year.
