I want to try Momocon, AWA, or Dragoncon (not all 3).
>>9137798 Ahahaha I live in a similar town with a similar situation. Even worse it's run by a college organization with shitty management and they are 100% convinced their ""convention"" is the shit. Trust me you'll have more fun at a real con. I usually drive up for all three mentioned every year. >momocon It's a little bland but I have fun anyway.

Hey /cgl/, going as one of these dudes to Otakon this year, and it's a bit down to the wire. For the spikes on the wheel, would bamboo chopsticks be acceptable in terms of safety? They aren't sharp by any means, but I'd figure I'd ask some more experienced people. Thanks.
This is awesome- I'll be there wearing this too! One of my favorite cosplays to wear. I think as long as they are secured, the chopsticks should be okay with the weapons check guys. The only concern I can guess they would have is poking people in crowded areas. But they aren't sharp, so I would assume it's okay. What's the diameter of the wheel and what material is it? That might factor into their decision. Do you have any progress pics?
My wheel is wood and the spikes are EVA foam, I'm a little worried myself. It's not dangerous by any... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
That's amazing that we have the same wheel! I found mine locally somewhere but yeah it looks like exactly the same model. Mine has a small pillow attached where it rests on my shoulder, I definitely recommend it- I wore this to MAGfest for a couple of years and had no problems carrying it for pretty much a full day each time.
This will be hilarious, if we come across each other I'd relish the opportunity to tag team chase people around. The meetup is Saturday at 1PM, outside of Charles St. Lobby east exit. My sister will be wearing it then since I'll be... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
A thread to post inspiration for lolita style wedding dresses and decor.
Do you want to marry in lolita? Have you discussed it with your partner? Have you already gotten married? What's your dream wedding dress? How would you feel if someone wore lolita to your wedding as a guest?
Hi /cgl/, I come here for some advice. I am going to be cosplaying a drow in Baltimore next weekend and have come seeking advice for makeup. I have face paint, eyeliner and shadow, and have an idea of how to apply it. But what I'm worried about is it running/smearing/coming off in some way due to the heat and my sweating while at the convention.
So what I want to know is what's the best way to keep my makeup from coming off?
I've decided to go whole new direction with my shop and want to liquidate my current stock for both the money and room to do so. I'd like to make dirt cheap grab bags, but is there such a price as "too cheap?"
Buyers and sellers, what are your views/advice on pricing?
if something is too cheap a lot of buyers will be suspicious of the quality and not purchase. there have been times that i was trying to sell clothing and when i took it down and relisted it at a slightly higher price the item sold right away.
>>9132053 Just provide detailed proof photos and let the quality speak for itself. Explaining the situation will help too, such as "closet cleaning, liquidating wardrobe for emergency ______, low prices to make it move fast" etc
Its been awhile since I've seen one of these. They have been very informative but I hadn't really been planning to travel to Japan for awhile. I may be coming into a lump sum of money soon, so traveling seems to be a very good possibility for me in the near future.
Discuss anything below or anything in relation to traveling. I'd also be curious about peoples personal experiences in Japan, good or bad.

Oh yeah, and how important is it to know Japanese. I've heard Tokyo is super gaijin town and is pretty easy to navigate. I still want to learn some Japanese to not be a rude tourist, but would like to hear opinions on how much you should know to navigate the city would be helpful.
>>9108035 I recently went to Japan with almost zero language skills and you absolutely don't need any japanese. Everything is in english (trains, street names, maps) and at train stations and big shopping malls you find english speaking staff if you need to ask for directions. Also the staff in restaurants and shops can speak the necessary sentences in english. A few words like Arigatou gozaimasu, sumimasen, ikura desu ka are helpful and polite, otherwise you don't have to worry (thought I really regretted not speaking... Comment too long.

>>9107335 Finns wanting to keep their own thread with Estonians makes sense tho. Finns are not connected like Norway, Sweden and Denmark for example. The language is so different there is no real sense trying to discuss Finnish things in these threads.
Menhera (メンヘラ) is a japanese slang term derived from “Mental Healther*”. It became the spark of a sickly cute (病みかわいい) aesthetics which takes the abiguous usage of the word “sick”, like as an insult for something nonconformist, literary as reflection of the social stigma which still hides behind the surface of “kawaii culture”.

Help with how to make a Batman 'cosplay' I was compelled to put this in the film part, but no help there.
Short version of the story is me and a local production group are making a BATMAN webseries, and have ZERO costumers in town who can make the suit correctly. Could someone PLEASE give me advice as to how to make the Cowl, chest pad and arms? I may also need help with the gorget(Neck piece, non attached to cowl)
If anyone can give me advice PLEASE do so.

haven't seen one of these in a while and i think they're great for inspiration - show your first (ita) coord(s) versus your style today, or a side by side of your first attempt with a dress VS now that you can dress it better.
or just post really bad coords of famous LOLITAS you h8.
Not really, ive seen these threads before. Its like a time line of your progress basically. Like 2010, 2011, 2012, etc. To see how youve improved. But nobody likes to self post so probably not going to get many replies.
>I would but I always forget to take pictures of my outfits
Hiya, I'm a complete newbie to cosplay, and I wanted some advice for a Reaper cosplay I want to do. I don't want it to be 1:1 or amazingly great, but just ok and recognizable for my first cosplay. Does anybody have any tips or places on where to look for materials and how to create a recognizable cosplay.
>>9133841 If you google armor making cosplay tutorials or anything like that you'll find your answer. Hell, even just checking the catalog or even posting this exact thing in an existing cosplay thread :/
I'm interested in getting into WWI and WWII reenacting and was wondering if anyone has any advice on where to start. I live in Michigan so if anyone has info on groups near me that'd be appreciated too,
No groups, but shops to look into are At the Front, Kreigsende, and Hessen Antique. I do German, so my opinion is based on that.
Find a group before you buy anything, and go to an event or two too. Each one had their own specific requirements and often guys will have gear you can borrow or buy off of as you build your kit. Plus, you want to make sure you like the unit before commiting totally. This shit isn't cheap, either.
Hope it's okay to ask this here. I'm a lolita and I bought a sam browne belt for a military lolita coord I'm putting together. I saw this one in black and figured I'd get it over the brown one just because I have more brown accessories in my wardrobe and lolita fashion is big on color coordination (would look odd for me to have a brown belt but black boots, etc). According to the listing I got it off of its a WWI British officers belt. I've been dying trying to find a matching pouch for the belt (thought it'd be cute to have it to stick my phone...

>>9133384 Seconding what this guy said. Unless you spend at minimum a year researching gear before you buy anything you will regret it. You simply don't know enough about the salesman or the gear itself.
>>9133439 If you're not afraid of playing with household chemicals you can always make vinegaroon.It dyes brown leather pure black and does not stain your clothes. I did it for my boots.
