>>8857126 Snapchat is more casual though, compared to the careful composition that goes into photos posted on Instagram and tumblr. It puts less pressure on how much attention your pics will receive, and I feel like it's more personal.
>>8857132 snapchat is also more personal though. from my experience, people don't like to give out their snapchats (unless their patreon patrons paid for it) even if people can only view their story. it could have potential to pick up a little pace as a way to share con experiences but insta and tumblr will trump it for costume progress, ootd, and haul pictures.
Anyone else here wear costume items to a convention, not for attention but moreso to get into the spirit of the con?
When reading cgl threads it feels there are two types of cosplayers (good and shit). While mostly true, do you think there is a third group?
I think there is another group of individuals who go to a con that dress up not necessarily to show off and gain attention but mainly to get in the spirit of the con and wear something a little bit different.
You see these people all the time that wear a single piece of a costume (like a simon jacket)... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I have a lot of anxiety about crowds, but it seems to lessen in costume or lolita, so I've started doing this on Sunday of conventions. (Or Friday, too, at really small cons where things don't start til Friday evening.) I'll wear just a wig and a t-shirt related to the character, or something bought and easy to put on, or accurate cosplay of more normie clothes. It helps me feel less anxious, but I don't have to stop and fix things and no one takes my picture, so I can just wander dealers' halls or ask for photos myself. Only got shit for it once...

>>8855266 I don't know exactly how relevant it is, but how do people feel about costumes where it's mostly altered existing garments? I'm really not confident in sewing anything more difficult than a straight line, so a lot of my cosplays end up being modified basic pieces. I think the hardest thing I've sewn together was a long trenchcoat, and I had help on that. I know a lot of basics, but it shows I know just that.
