I was recently looking through some old cosplay pictures on my computer when I got reminded of this.

Why did you want to shoot at the convention wouldn't it be better to shoot outside at a better location that represents the character you are cosplaying. Con photos arent always the best. I mean I've had one or 2 bad shoots before but didn't give up.
There weren't many cons in general. Anime was its own niche so the couple cons that existed back then were exclusively anime and much smaller.
Cosplay didn't have quite as many resources and standards didn't exist so you had a lot of spray-dye and party city wigs, cheap satin, and improper footwear. Obviously no Facebook, so cosplay was more of a small local community thing and everyone just did their own thing. There was a little drama but it was minimal and mostly only within those small local communities. DA and Coscom didn't start being used for... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Can you imagine the godawful condition of someone's hair who dyes their hair for every character they cosplay? What about length, unrealistic styling, and going from dark colors to light? I'm guessing OP is no older than 14.

Anyway, i remember an old story like 7 years ago about a girl wearing a terribad gothic lolita milanoo-tier thing with a cheap ass wig and dirty sneakers who tried to seduce a Sephiroth cosplayer and got him outside,in a corner where nobody was (she told she "really needed to tell him something" and he thought if he did he would finally get rid of her...big mistake) and she...

CGL, what are your thoughts on keeping your piercings in while in cosplay, both at cons or at photoshoots? Is it just a small thing to overlook, or does it make a cosplay look lazy? Are there any suggested characters for people who can't or won't remove their piercings?
Pic related has been plastered all over the internet and even Fallout's Facebook today, but I can't stop looking at the nosering.
>>8813197 >lazy I saw this on reddit and thought the same thing. Sure a stud isn't as distracting as a huge septum piercing but unless it's still healing why wouldn't you take it out? It's as lazy as cosplayers who don't remove their glasses for photos.
>>8813197 I didn't even notice the tiny nose ring until you mentioned it. If something that tiny that blends in with the surrounding paint bothers you so much you should probably rethink your priorities and stop being so unbelievably salty. Seriously, this topic has been beaten to death.
I don't lurk here very often, but I just wanted to know if there's like a "too soon" kind of unspoken rule about cosplay. Would it be rude to Cosplay as Snape at any upcoming events, as an homage to his passing?
>>8812761 My personal opinion is that cosplaying the character is fine, since you're cosplaying the fictional person and not the actor who played him in a movie. Cosplaying the actor or making note of his death is not fine. So Snape is good, but Snape in a halo is bad.
>How do you like to co-ordinate randoseru? I don't really co-ord, it's casual for me. Designated handbag because convenient.
>What colour? Deep red because I am a girl
>What style(fairy-kei, lolita, etc..)? Otome, nanchatte, and lolita. It's perfect for otome, and I'm pretty much a red-scheme loli anyway.. Nanchatte takes a little more work because of the bold colour, but as long as I'm outside of JP it just looks slightly eccentric.
Can we get some inspiration for super casual lolita coords - ones that would make normies think you're simply dressed kind of quirky, but not quirky enough that they would feel the need to ask you if you were wearing a costume? Some that normies might even - dare I say - like? Outfits that aren't actually lolita but use lolita main pieces are okay too, anything so long as it's a way to wear your lolita without standing out a whole lot!
>>8811686 Personal taste. I just thought the things were cute, tacky or not. I'm not going to use the backpack daily or anything it's just something on my list that I think would look cute around my room, calm down. I'm aware that I'm not a child.
