Last year was my first PAX, I learned then that complex costumes will have to stay at home. So I'll be bringing Clover from 999 and Wendy from Don't Starve. I'm really looking forward to the Rooster Teeth panel actually, and seeing the Pokemon and Yokai Watch stuff!!
Let's recap: >con takes place in both US and Canada simultaneously >website has egregious misinformation on whether you need passports or not >a horde of weeaboos will no doubt be stranded in Canada >con chair is allegedly a pedophile
They released their schedule, and 10 out of the 13 event areas are on the US side. Why did they bother????
Did anyone send modeling application for j-fashion fair? They were supposed to inform the models already and I would like to know if they only sent the emails to those who were selected. I'm just too embarassed to ask if I wasn't selected. I don't want to seem stupid or confident.
Finally a Finland thread! I'm not sure where to ask this since Aniki is pretty dead and Kazoku foruumi doesn't work on my phone (is it dead?). Assuming this place is much more active considering Finnish cosplay and cons than any others.
What is the conseus of bought cosplays? I can't sew or anything and I was thinking of buying my forst cosplays. Do people look down on you if you tell them (if they ask whether you made it or if you bought it) that you bought it. I was thinking of first buying the cosplay that resembles the character the best, then buy... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
i was wondering to anyone who has bought a body line tote, do they smell really..... fishy? my cousin bought me an antique clock tote which i plan use for normie wear since i dress gothic and it's pretty cute, but it smells like mr yan himself rubbed his sweaty ballsack all over it. anyone else got this problem?
Speaking of bodyline bags, they used to have really cute bags shaped like different things (strawberries, teddy bears, design replicas). The older bodyline bags I have are pretty good quality too. I wish they'd do more of them! Totes aren't really my style
Does anyone have advice/tutorials for sewing off the shoulder puff sleeves like this? I'm wondering how I should place them against the bodice for maximum comfort/mobility since it's for a project I'll likely be wearing all day at a renfest.
This is gonna be my very first SacAnime. What should I expect in terms of lines, crowds, dealers hall, are the people there usually pretty lively? I've only ever been to Fanime before and the energy at Fanime is usually pretty good, even if the last two cons weren't as interesting in terms of guests and panels and all that.
>what are your plans? Cosplay and let my ego skyrocket.
>>9150145 The crowd is young I think its high school and early 20s. The energy is pretty lively but more in that hyperactive teenager lively as opposed to con lively. There much less interesting "inbetween" goings on then say Fanime so its harder to pass the time simply wandering around. I do recommend having a game plan and to prepare for the heat. Sacramento is notoriously hot and even the two block distance most hotels have is pretty brutal.
Also you're going to need to work a lot harder to find food.
Long story short, I'm a fat2fit lady with a lot of muscle. Buff. And I love it.
I've always wanted to get into cosplay, and now that I've got the body I want I'm starting on it. Because of my figure, I'm doing a lot of female versions of male characters. I'm starting with a fem Chu from YuYu Hakusho, and then a fem version of Enoch from the video game El Shaddai. Possibly doing female Heavy from TF2, as well. The designs are somewhat conservative, as they've been made (slightly) feminine but not slutty. I'm not into slutty.

It's kind of lame, but I'm going to be doing umbreon for myself, eevee for my child. I have some pieces from my first attempt at umbreon, which was pretty lackluster but had decent furry bits, which I'm going to cannibalize and improve. I was going to use some old pajamas to make the ears/tail for eevee, but the faux fur was damaged in the wash, so I'm looking for other fabric. The light bits are a sherpa-type, so I'm trying to find the perfect fabric with a similar texture for the brown bits.
Hopefully it's okay. I don't want to wind... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>9118196 can't think of any other examples offhand but in the manga usagi is described as very average. that's part of her appeal as a character, she isn't particularly beautiful or intelligent or graceful but her friends love her anyway.
Those halcyon days before stupid_free and sf_drama were over-run with sjws. Oh, and I miss lolita_fucks. And badmakeup. And fanficrants. And McTabby and summary executions. And a whole lot of other stuff that couldn't happen now anyway because we're all too fucking 'sensitive' these days.
But why are people so against using livejournal nowadays? I don't have any issues using it on my cellphone. Instead of a thread like this, why not make a wtf burando post on egl if you miss it so much? Is it a patience issue, because it takes a while for egl to have new posts and comments?
>>9175597 There has already been multiple attempts by nostalgic gulls to bring back LJ, but it never works. Personally, I think people remember the LJ days in heavily rose tinted glasses. The lolcows were better and I think the sales comm was superior to everything we have now for BST, but that's about it. The posts on EGL were mostly pretty cried or boring, save for some useful information and translations.
I hate sewing, but most of that seems to just be because I have a shitty Singer Inspiration sewing machine that jams almost all the time so 50% of my time spent sewing something is spent fixing the machine and unthreading things.
Hey guys, I'm relatively new to this board. I've done cosplay before, but as a fat guy, i have trouble finding choosing characters to do. I'm starting this thread in the hopes that you guys can make suggestions on fat/big guy characters. Image related-thinking of doing roadhog.
OP I know you're asking for fat/big guy characters to cosplay, but as a fellow fat guy let me say this first. Cosplay who you want whether they're fat or not. That's what I do. I'm sure many on /cgl/ would disagree with that, but I cosplay for myself not others, but if you feel the need to cosplay fat guys regardless I'll drop you some suggestions here.
/cgl/, do you keep your cosplaying separate from your professional life? Do your coworkers know you cosplay? Do they care?
I'm in a bit of a pickle. Back when I was young and dumb, I didn't properly separate my art galleries and my cosplay presence, so now when you google image search my name a whole bunch of cosplay shit from pinterest pops up. I've messaged the owners of the pinterest boards asking them to remove my name and just leave my handle, but I have no idea if any of them will even respond, let alone take my name off.

I'm a lolita, but the theory still applies. I have completely separate accounts and names for my j-fashion and real life stuff, and I only post pictures of myself on j-fashion accounts if I'm wearing a wig and heavy enough makeup that it wouldn't be easily recognizable as me unless you were looking for it.
My workplace couldn't... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I do try to keep my cosplay life separate from my professional life, but when coworkers ask questions about what I'm doing when I get time off for a con I usually just end up telling them. I'm fortunate enough that they think that my cosplaying is really cool! They don't know the alias I use for cosplay so they can't look through all of my photos, but they always ask to see pictures from conventions and get really excited about it.
OP, I'm also a graphic designer, and I think your experience is going to vary depending on where you're looking... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>9167286 OP, I know how you feel. I can't find a job because I've done a lot of cosplay as well as nude which is all over the internet and has been spread by many. Same thing as you, just google my name and it's there. And I'm not even trying to do anything on a professional level. A local Sheetz wouldn't hire me due to finding the images then ended up sharing them even more with the co-workers. I can't even show my face in there anymore.
Most of our feels threads are negative. Let's have a good feels thread! Did you just get your dream dress? Feel awesome about photos you got back from your photoshoot? Any good con experiences that make you feel warm and fuzzy inside whenever you think about them? Keep it /cgl/ related and lets share those good feelings!
My boyfriend's been in college since before we were dating. He's always felt awful about not being able to earn much money as a student and not being able to pay for a lot of our dates or buy me gifts as expensive as the ones I got him. I assured him it was okay and fast forward to this year when he's finally a graduate who landed a good job almost immediately after finishing school. Mfw my birthday comes around and he surprises me by buying my dream dress. It cost more than anything I've ever bought him and he's never gifted me burando before and I just ...
The store isn't in the spreadsheet, so I thought I'd ask here: does Avenue Denfer do custom sizing?
I'm absolutely head over heels in love with this dress, but I couldn't for the likes of me find anything about custom sizing (since they put all their text on picture so can't google translate). Help a whale-loving gull out?
If I started an order yesterday, paid the first payment today (item cost + domestic shipping), and then had it shipped by SAL, is it likely to arrive before Halloween? It's mu-fish's rose cross bag and a pair of infanta bloomers, so a small order but I know the bag is big. I'm using taobao ring and have never bought from taobao before but lurked in these threads for a while
Shitty censorship edition Old thread: >>9090337 Taobao thread (strongly recommend for larger orders): >>9121642 As usual: >don't buy makeup or sex toys off of AE >use your common sense >be aware that things you purchase are subject to little to no quality control
I just went organizing crazy. Here are pouches all for under $1. The black mesh ones are 'stroller bags', I got a bunch to attach to clothes hangers to hold accessories when I pre-plan full outfits. Also got some clothes hangers for my dog.
