Does anyone else ever have nightmares about getting to the con and their cosplays not being ready/forgetting important things? I always get them after I start working on a cosplay.

I want to apply for AM's j-fashion show but I'm too afraid of:
1) being rejected
2) backlash
Being in a burando fashionshow is part of my bucket list and I'm not getting younger...

Anovos? All the same I hope you get it on time

The old thread died

I'm curious -
Nobody likes everyone, but do you like your local community overall? Why/why not?
What would you do to change it?
Even if there are problems, are you glad you joined?

i want to leave my community and become a lone lolita. the ones in my community i thought were my friends turned out to be backstabbing bitches and tried to turn more girls against me so i cant trust them. even though its a big city it feels like its the regulars who hate me and i dont know why they're doing this. i havent gone to any meets in months because i dont want to see them but its annoying because i want to wear my dresses out. i just dont like wearing them alone because of all the questions i get. theres another community but its 3-4 hours away, but they seem...

I live in kind of a weird area, all of the closest comms to me are 2.5-3 hours away. I personally think it's kinda far to drive by myself with my busy schedule. Is this a normal amount of time to travel for a comm? I was kind of thinking trying to start a comm closer to where I live, but I don't want to be seen as a special snowflake. What do I do? Anyone I know in irl that is into Lolita is in these far away comms.
I'm techicilly in two different comms, but i mostly go to one over the other. Not saying i like that comm more, i've just made more friends in the another comm. My home comm is sweet and accepting(so is 2ndcomm) but i don't really connect that much with the girls though.

Hi, everyone! I'll be frank; I'd really like to start up a lifestyle blog or Youtube channel. I think deep down a lot of us would like to have someplace that we can share our outfit collections or merch. However I'm not really sure where to start.

Let's have a discussion about kawaii bloggers and Youtubers! I'd like to use kawaii as an umbrella term, so anything /cgl/ related really. What do you look for when you subscribe to blogger? What do you find entertaining? Who are your favorite bloggers and Youtubers?

*hugs* finally an anon who gets me. I'm totally there with you but I find it difficult to really get motivated. You need to be constantly finding and thinking of new things, buying new crap and of course have a kawaii blogger room.

Board games and cosplay that breaks on stage.
Panels mostly. And the hopes of making awesome friends
Hang out with friends, vacation, cosplay for the hell of it.

I'm not into what's commonly popular in cosplay, AA, Dealers Room, and Panels these days so "con stuff" very rarely grabs me.

How do you feel about cosplayers who hand out stuff to people they approach or who interact with them? Have you ever done it?

I've seen cosplayers do it with flowers before. I was going to hand out something to people who approached me in cosplay (I'm not going to personally approach anyone), but I'm curious what people think of this.

one no-face gave me a chocolate coin when I was waiting in line for the cosplay competition and said "You're almost there!" It was so sweet that I'm planning on handing out little pieces of paper that say nice things if someone comes up to me. Just like a little piece of paper like one in a fortune cookie with a saying like "you can do it!" or "you are beautiful" or something.
the best instance of this i ever have and likely ever will witness is when me and my girlfriend saw two guys cosplaying as jesse and walter white and they looked SO CANON. so she yelled "yo, mr white!" from afar, as we were approaching them. we complimented their cosplays, and without saying anything, walter white just grins, pulls out a little baggie of blue rock candy, and hands it to my girlfriend. it was hilarious, i think she still has it somewhere

as for myself, i like to draw and make stickers of some of the characters from the series i'm cosplaying...

Once I saw an Okosan cosplayer and I gave them a tiny pudding cup jello candy. They gave me a heart sticker that said "Good End". I've gotten tiny presents and things at Holiday Matsuri before because people go all out for Christmas. One year there was a Santa Totoro who gave out tiny soot sprite bottle ornaments if you hugged him. I've had a Sableye gijinka give me a plastic jewel.... Honestly I love it. It's super lame but I cherish those dumb trinkets because they're nice memories.

I can't find this dress on lolibrary, all I know is that it's baby, and google translates it to Shirring Side Ruffle jsk. If anyone could ID it I'd be really grateful! Thanks

Hey /cgl/ I was wondering if anyone here has had any experience making plushies.

I'm making one for my friends birthday and it's of her favorite character. I'm using this other plushie as a reference and I want the "chibi" plush I'm making to have similar sizes and what not. I have all the measurements and have been reading some things on plushie making but I also wanted to see if anyone here may have advice on making patterns or may even have a pattern that is similar to this.

If you're making it as a present, make some to practice first. Use felt for practice, minky for real.
You want to basically make two halves of a complete plush before you sew them together. If your plush has belts or other details that go on top of the clothes, pin them on and sew after checking that both halves match up. Sew on the facial features and hair, too.
When you pin the two halves together it'll be pretty thick. You should have needles thick enough to be able to sew through several layers...

What sort of stitching do you use? Hand or machine? And do you sew it inside out from bottom to top? If it's handsewn on the good side, what stitch do you use

Do you have any advice on how to do the hair?

I bought a custom sized Jsk from forest sambar (the vincent van gogh dress)
I had waited three months for it to arrive and when it did, it was horrifically made. The seams were bleeding due to the fabric, the fit was really off, it was far longer than I ordered, the ribbions were like cheap gold christmas ribbion and the navy on the bodice and the underskirt ruffle were two entirely different shades and material.
I have done dressmaking for nearly 10 years and Iwas horrified that they let such a mess of a dress be released and shipped. Saddly I didn't get my money...

Not lolita, but I really regret trying out Arda's silky wigs. When they arrived I didn't like the shine and lack of thickness, but decided that I'd make it work since I'd already spent the money. Tried to recurl it into a mermaid wave and it turned into the biggest, most tangled mess I have ever encountered (and I own dozens of wigs). I spent a long time trying to detangle it, but the fibers were so kinked and frizzed and re-tangling every time I brushed them out, I eventually gave up and bought a replacement without having worn it once.

AoD is weird. As in, despite the fact it draws good numbers every year, no one ever talks about it on social media or cgl
I hope it isn't a ghost con this year, the venue change is very far away from SF and I'm not sure people are going to make the trek down there.
First time going. What can I expect? I'm sure there will be changes with the new venue, but what has it been like before? Is the cosplay scene good? How's the Masquerade? Quality panels?
