I'd like to request pics of shared table setups. I only ever see full table setups, and I'll be sharing a table next month. Looking for inspiration!

Reposting from the previous thread.

Where can I get stuff like notepads/notebooks and card wallets made? Getmeds and jimi agency are pricey and their slots fill up fast, so I searched around alibaba but couldn't find any good suppliers. Can someone please point me in the right direction?
Also reposting, anyone have tips for drawing double sided charms? I get that the back is a reverse of the front, but trying to figure out how I'm gonna get the lineart for the outer edge to be exactly the same (unless you're usually just supposed erase the inside??).
Yeah, you erase the inside and basically "fill it in" for the backside. If you're worried one side sticks out a little, you could always overlay each side on the other as a mask. Then they'll match up exactly.
I usually put an extra stroke around the outside because I like the look of it, which also makes it easier to match front to back.
(This is only an issue for clear charms, anyway.)

I'm not sure, but I'm still waiting for a seller to invoice me and all my messages are unread, so I'm going to go with no.
I actually got a couple today. They hadn't been working since before the 7th. Seems to be fine now
I only just noticed that they started replying to people on the facebook page before Christmas. It still feels like nobody moderating the site though, replicas and non-Lolita shit everywhere.

I have a rokku dress I want to take up, however its knitted with fairly chunky wool, how do i go about this with out it unravelling?

How would you alter the middle one for shirring? Do you have a graphic for this
I have a fairly general question about sewing - tried /diy/ earlier but they mentioned that /cgl/ might be a good fit:

I was wondering how much of an investment, time-wise, it would be to pick it up as a skill. I buy clothing quite rarely - part of the reason being that reasonably priced stuff either a) fits terribly, b) falls apart in under a year, or c) both.

I'm not really at the income bracket where I can afford to pay a tailor for practically every piece of clothing I own, so I figure this could...

Ever got a temporary tattoo just for a cosplay?
29 replies and 8 images submitted. Click here to view.
Two of my cosplays involve tattoos. One has a smaller tattoo on the wrist, so I just drew it and had it printed as a temporary tattoo. Saves a lot of time and there's no way to fuck it up, but the stuff the company uses for their tattoos does get kinda gross after a couple days from dirt and dust sticking to it, so unless I cover the tat when I'm done cosplaying, its too gross to wear multiple days in a row.

The other one has a large lower abdomen tattoo, and going the custom tat route would be too expensive so I made a stencil out of thin, flexible cardboard,...

Printer tattoo paper is your friend. I just draw up my own stuff and print it myself.
How did you keep your tattoos from looking terribly fake? I used the printer paper and after I applied it, the tattoo was very shiny. I was also cosplaying pic related so getting it off was a bitch.

Why don't they ever work in the USA, gulls? Even in a place like Detroit where you can pay rent with Monopoly dollars they can't bang out enough to keep the doors open.

Fair enough, but you would think that gimmick would get people in the door.

probably the biggest offender. its surprising to think that there arent plenty of cute girls who would love to work part-time at one.

Just around the corner. First time going to this con. Honestly, I've never heard of it until I did some intensive research on 2016 cons.

It is also the Asian American Expo? I'm not sure but it is happening in the Pomona Fairplex.

Soooooo.... Who's going? Lolita meets? Cosplay meets?

I just looked at the guest list and its mostly just cosplayers. I understand bringing in established cosplayers to judge a masquerade or host panels but this looks more like they said "If you have a lot of followers on social media and going to the con, we'll put your name up on the guest list" Seems kind of circle jerky if you ask me.
Don't forget about their "game room" where you'll pay $15 to come in and play LoL

Parents force harsh expectations on kids, I think cosplay is nothing compared to that.
All parents force the things they like and agree with on their children. Making it cosplay or nerd culture specific is silly.

Parents give children religion, they dress them, they choose their schools based on their own wants, they choose their food, make them take all kinds of classes and regulate what shows they can't watch and what music is played most around them.

Like all grown adults children grow up and form their own tastes regardless of how their parents feel. Some kids will take away a happy loving memory and remember it as a good thing and may...

If others can force religion and sports onto their child I can force weeby things on them. Why does one get children if not for this?

>Mistakes made

Trying to use normalfag skirts for lolita, using mediocre handmade items such as bags/headpieces in coords, wearing way too heavy of eye make up, buying from milanoo and bodyline.

>How did you learn to improve your coords?

I learned that when you buy items you need to have an idea of what they will match with in your wardrobe. For example, if you have a lot of brown/wine/navy in your wardrobe, don't buy pastel pink...

>What mistakes did you make?

My biggest mistake was wearing replicas and supporting replica makers. While I regret it in that respect, it helped me to appreciate the quality and design that goes into original garments. Back then, I really honestly believed that because I was larger, I had literally no options other than replicas. The amount of options and viewpoints have changed since then. So I feel better for more fatty-chans getting into the fashion.

Other mistakes was buying everything I liked because the price was right, or it...

>What was it like to change your wardrobe if you did?
I went from buying everything I kinda liked that would fit and it grew into having a lot of main pieces with few options to coordinate with them. I had a lot of dresses I couldn't do much with. I sold a lot, kept my absolute favorites, invested money in blouses, accessories, legwear, shoes, etc. When I had the money saved up, I started buying high priority items off my wishlist.

Now my wardrobe is at a point where even...
