We're always having threads for bad cosplay photography. Why not a thread for GOOD photography and editing?
Post the best you've seen.

Amino - Larme Fashion
I had one but it's so outdated it seemed a little pointless until I can update it. It's one of my projects. It was open for other people to update too but few did hah.
Petite dollies does have just a simple list version I can link right now, but I'm hoping to do something more in depth in the future.
I'm not st my computer right now but I'll get a link to my old sheet when I get home for people who want it.
Gulls, whats your opinion on altering dresses? Especially brand?
I just got my dream dress, but its too open on the sides. I was considering getting it tailored, but am worried if they will be able to do a good job. Especially with the lace trim at the bottom.
Also considering removing the bow on top to make a clip, opinions?
Will I end up fucking up the aesthetic?
Have you ever gotten anything tailored/done it yourself?
>its too open on the sides
If you're talking about the dress in your pic, it's a salopette, what did you expect? That's how it's meant to be. If you wanted a tighter fit you should have gotten the JSK.
Anyway it's your dress, do whatever you want with it, just don't expect to get what you paid for it when and if you decide to sell it.
as a posthumanist, i incorporate my enthusiasm for better selves via technological enhancement into my lolita wardrobe. all my items have been tailored, with varying rates of success, to suit my body and my aesthetic. sometimes i like to sketch what popular dream dresses would look like in a world where weeaboos have the power to give themselves cybernetic implants or wings or whatever. i really want to watch an anime that features otaku lolitas physically emulating their fandoms
I did, and do want it to be open on the sides, but i'm just very thin, it gaps so much you can see down the sides.
Thanks for the consideration on selling it, I know it ill make it more difficult to resell.

Share those cosplay and lolita-related feels, gulls.
What does /cgl/ think about people cosplaying from something they don't like? Is it ever okay?
There's a character I really like from a show I don't and I would love to cosplay them but I'm unsure if I should or if people would look down on me for it.
You wanna cosplay as a love live dontchu
I have been guilty of wanting to do this as well. Honestly, just pretend that you like it or be honest and say that you specifically only liked the character you're cosplaying as from the show. There are some shows where I thought only one character wasn't shit.

The five next major events:
>Yaycon (February 19th, Amersfoort UT), a con targetted at the LBGT audience. Yaranaika?
>Showmasters Comic Con Rotterdam (March 4th & 5th, Rotterdam ZH), a con exactly like ACC only in Rotterdam.
>Dutch Comic Con (March 25th & 26th, Utrecht UT), a con exactly like X-mas DCC, only with more stands and people.
>VidCon (April 7th – 9th, Amsterdam NH), an overly expensive place to meet YouTubers.
>TomoCon (April 8th & 9th, Berghem NB), only the best convention ever that strikes fear in the eyes of all other Dutch conventions! /s

Strawpoll: Are you going to Yaycon? http://www.strawpoll.me/12333889
Wanted to see if anyone else was going to Anime Milwaukee this year, and bonus question:
Was curious what its like/how big it is? Ive never been to an anime convention before and kinda nervous. (but excited!) sorry for blogging..
I'm going with my bf and friends! On the site it says there were over 9000 people last year. I really like going to AMKE; it's not too big/small, has good game room, etc I guess the organization can be better but I don't go to the main events and stuff so I can't really say. One big drawback this year is that there's no maid cafe.
My girlfriend and I will be going for the first time this year as well. I have always heard mixed things about the con, but with NBC being a garbage con now, looking for another Wisconsin cons to see friends in the spring.
Thank you so much for the thoughtful and informative reply. I hope you, your bf, and friends have a good time!
I am not familiar with NBC but im just seriously happy I got any response without being flamed on 4ch. BUT, you said you heard mixed things. What are they? Sorry but you teased my curiosity.

What are you working on /cgl/?
Haven't seen one in a while so let's have a Fire Emblem thread. Who's playing Fire Emblem Heroes? Any new cosplays planned? Katsucon is usually a pretty big FE con - for those going, you bringing anything? Discuss!
I'll get the ball rolling with some pics but if anybody has some nice dark blood F!Kamui/Corrin cosplays to share I'd love to see them as inspiration for my own.
Last thread hit limit:
Bunbun is also a dick though. Just where it counts. I still think bunbun is too new to the fashion to be giving much advise. Although dressing better then she did earlier last year, she's still got a long way to go before I would take any inspiration from her.
Any way, why isn't there a Lolita sales amino? Am I missing something? It would be nice to have that amino to get the sales off the LA page.
This was soo hard to read. I get it she's ESL but the things she was saying and the poor English made me cringe. I'm ESL but not this level of bad.
