Hi there, I'm super new to cosplay but fell in love with a background character from the new Star Wars. He has a pretty killer helmet but I'm not quite sure how to make helmets at all and all the instructions from a cursory google are pretty "high tier learning" situations.
TLDR could you give me some good links and tips for helmet creation in cosplay? Please?
I love it when little boys lik you post here- but this is not the place to make your own thread! Mommy is very dissapointed and is going to punish you for not posting in the help thread like a good boy.
I often see the photographer horror stories thread. But do you photographers have horror stories about cosplayers ?
>met some cosplayer at a con >asian, quite ugly but tons of make-up make her look rather cute on pics >she always want to redo 2-3 times each pic cuz she doesn't want her ugly chin to be seen but anyways
>a few weeks after the con, she asks for a shoot >she was a bit pissing me off but her costumes... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>photoshoot with a group of girls in an alley with graffiti and stuff >it's cold, like 7C >one girl has on fishnets, booty shorts, a pleather crop and a jacket with buckle sleeves >not even jfash why >"aaaaah i'm so cold" >why don't you just unbutton the sleeves while you wait for your turn for photos?

Hey there seagulls. I'm not to well versed with how smaller cons tend to operate, but I'm concerned about touhoucon 2016. There's no listed dates or anything indicating that it's in the works. Hell, all their official outlets haven't been active since around September. Is this par for the course for small cons, or is it likely that we won't be seeing touhoucon again?
>>8819561 From what I remember, they overestimated attendance and other things and I think couldn't pay the hotel back in full, hotel started charging people randomly, and a big mess happened.
I've also heard rumors that there's a lawsuit involved now, against the hotel if I remember right, and that's why they got so quiet. So it's hard to tell what's really going on here now. Personally I was wouldn't call Touhoucon totally dead yet but 2016 isn't gonna happen. Maybe back for 2017.... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Well just reposting from the taobao thread because I still haven't had any luck.
I'm looking for a boxy/shapeless blazer for nanchatte. The ones I found through the nanchatte google sheet have mixed reviewes. For $40, apparently the two I was looking at both wrinkle easily. For the cheaper blazers, the phrase "you get what you pay for" comes up a lot for the $20 ones.
I don't mind blowing decent money on this, I just want options before forking over $250 to conomi.
Also, I'm ordering my first, long skirt from taobao. I'm so excited.
I'm a professional makeup artist (licensed esthetician actually), and was wondering if it would be a good idea for me to find a way to provide services to cosplayers for conventions?
I worked in the dealer's room at Animazement last year, and I saw a decent amount of people that if they had their makeup professionally done, or done at all, their whole look would have been much better. Not to knock on their effort, because I'm aware of how difficult it can be to put together a costume--especially if it's from scratch.
It's also really... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I think it's a good idea in theory, but I don't know how many congoers (especially the ones who aren't wearing makeup or are wearing it poorly, who tend to be the younger crowd or those who care less about their appearance in general) can afford or are willing to pay for professionally-done makeup for a con.
You're absolutely right. I forgot to mention I had already planned on providing my services for the congoers at a rate lower than what I would normally charge, on a sliding, time based scale.
Purely for example: $25 for a 30 minute application, lashes/other adornments a la carte, discount if you book an appointment ahead of time, yadda yadda. I can get a lot done in 30 minutes, especially with airbrushing. I want to charge reasonably, and be flexible with my pricing. I don't want to be taken advantage... Comment too long.

>>8819080 sounds like a pretty good idea to me; i've actually been looking around for someone to do the same at a local con in my area and seen one or two people advertising on tumblr for it. I think you've definitely gotta make sure to book specific times/locations like photographers do in advance, agree upon the looks you'll be doing, show plenty examples of your work and agree on/pay the price upfront (because you and i both know how much of an issue convention budgeting can be, and you dont want to end up...

I'm planning on going to Otakon in my home city of Baltimore. Time isn't an issue, I have plenty of time to prepare my costume. The problem is I'm Black. I have airsoft guns with the bright orange safety tips but I'm scared to walk around with them.
Airsoft guns usually aren't allowed in conventions anyway.
Also this is prolly bait but whatevs.
As long as you aren't stupid with them, you should be fine. Like don't wave them around carelessly, stow them away when you're not on convention grounds, make sure your weapons align with the weapons policy etc.
If you wanna be creative and not have to worry, just use one of dante's other weapons. Like lucifer or pandora. My life for a really good Gilgamesh or Luciferrrr
A design for the pokemon espeon. Thoughts on this sort of cosplay?
(background : so I have a degree in Costume design and construction. Yes that is actually a university course! I love anime and cosplay but my designson are a little different to what I've seen at comic con. More performance based. I'd just like a few opinions on if you would like to see this sort of cosplay. Or if I'm deluded and wasting my time... I just want to make things for a living! Not work in a kitchen xx
I saw this type of thread a while ago. Post some of your past cosplays and some of your planned cosplays and anons will see if they can find a pattern in the type of characters you like to cosplay (personality, appearance, etc.)
So...this will premier on the first day of Katsucon, and only a couple months before con season.
Are you guys prepared for the increased influx of meme-spouting idiots clogging up the halls, as they try acting in-character and simply being retarded the entire weekend? How long do you think it will last?
One year I had a Deadpool cosplay come and grope my friend. She was pretty upset about it and I ended having to get him to leave even though he wanted a picture with her. He kept saying it was for the pose. Probably should have asked first before touching.
