Sort of related. I've been thinking of holding a cross stitch meet up. I love the idea of craft meetups but a lot of crafts I do are just way too messy to be done in lolita.
Ideas of best way to go about this? At first I was thinking of buying those little stitch pack things you can get at michaels (everything you need for a small preset stitch). But the stuff they have is kind of lame and outdated.
I know there are cross stitch pattern generators (I'm doing one I made currently with one). I was thinking maybe of making up a few that are lolita related,... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Just moved to Minnesota last month. I'm used to the east coast and eastern midwest where there's an abundance of decent to spectacular cons, but now I'm finding that most cons out here are mediocre or Kopf-cons. Is there anything out here that's worthwhile? (sticking to the US)
Daishocon is the only one I've been considering. Not sure if I want to take the trip all the way to Chicago for Acen. How is AnimeIowa?
I live in MN and go to Anime Detour every year. It's nothing special as far as cons go but I always have a good time. Registration caps at 5000 and it always sells out a few months in advance and the hotel sells out in under an hour after reservations open up so if you want to go you have to commit pretty early. There's also Animinneapolis. I've only gone once and liked Detour a lot more, but Animinneapolis sounds like it's improved the past couple years. I've also heard good things about Convergence as far as sci-fi party cons go, but I've never... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>9122940 Detour was my first con ever, went every year until I moved away. It's a total blast, they always have great panels. Anime Iowa was always fun as well if you're willing to travel for it, it's in the middle of fucking nowhere but worth it.
Have you modelled? Designed? Directed? Favorite brands to work with? Least favorite?
Ever been stuck in an ugly coord? Have to deal with bitchy models? Rehearsed for hours with a constantly changing script and no way to eat, drink, or pee because you couldn't leave the room and let plebs see your designer's precious brand before the show?
I'm doing my first fashion show this year at Dragoncon! I'm very excited but thus far I've had trouble finding models and it's a very last minute thing so I'm quite worried. I also fear the models I do have won't get their coords together in time.
I'm planning the coordinates but I'm not the designer. The designer is a surprise!
>>9121228 Typically, yes. But there are extenuating circumstances. The designer won't be at the show unfortunately. We're also getting a discount on our orders as opposed to borrowing the coords so I'm collabing with the girls to make sure they each have an outfit they'll wear again.
>>9117455 Well, Alphonse Mucha's work is in the public domain, so legally it's fair game. There is a very clear difference between a commercial company currently making profit on their merchandise, and a long dead artist whose work has all been released to the public domain.
Personally I'm not bothered/offended by style copies if there ISN'T an official release of that fandom from that retailer, but as an artist I wouldn't mess with that can of worms. The retailer is going to be legally obligated to shut... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
In your experience, does tabling with a person of much higher skill level than you boost or take away from your sales? I expected a boost, but when I tabled with a very skillful friend, it felt like nobody paid attention to my stuff.
>>9117564 How much higher? And how different are your styles and fandoms?
Personally, I table with a friend whose art is worse than mine, and I pretty sure it's hurting my sales. People either gush over her side and ignore mine, or vice-versa. But alot of time, the dividing factor was just who had what fandom.
Hey, we had this thread on /fit/ but I didn't get my questions fully answered.
I'm just saying everything that I can think of about this topic and if something isn't written down than please be certain that I'm not doing it, so don't just assume stuff.
My skin is rather oily, especially on the nose and forehead. I shower daily in the mornings and never try to wash my face with shampoo or whatever. I only wash it with water under the shower. Once I'm done showering, I dry myself and use "Cetaphil Daily Facial Cleanser" on... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
First of all, you should probably be using a cleanser that's specifically for oily skin. Preferably something natural that isn't going to strip your face. Same thing with the moisturizer. You need something that's going to balance and take care of excess oil. I'd add in a toner. A lot of people don't think it's necessary but I feel like my face isn't thoroughly clean if I don't use it after I cleanse.
Secondly, I'd invest in a face scrub or a mask. I exfoliate once a week (twice if I feel extra oily) and that definitely helps... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>9088004 Didn't even realize we didn't have a Skincare General in the catalog.
Ok anon, for what you're doing wrong. Cetaphil is a skin cleanser, and you don't put it on dry skin. It is the same as when you are taking a shower and clean yourself with soap. Turn on your sink, wet your face, then take a pump of the cleanser and rub it in to wash. Then you rinse it off. That is how you wash your face. There are skincare turorials on youtube if you have trouble understanding something, though washing... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.

I've never been before, but I might go this yr. The general consensus on this board is that it's a fun con and way better managed than AN. One of their guests that I'm kinda excited about seeing is Takeshi Obata who did the art for Hikaru no Go and Deathnote: http://www.otakuthon.com/2016/guests/goh/#takeshi-obata
I also wanna check out Fanexpo this yr, only because Stan Lee is coming and this will be his last Canadian appearance due to his age/travel restrictions.
I guess I start to judge someone when I see their personality is overcome by "their weeaboo level". I've been surrounded by retards most of my life, anyway. I don't care if someone has their entire house covered in anime cringe and wears kitty ears around the neighborhood. If they are not hurting anyone, and they are able to maintain full conversations that do not scream 'autism' and are outside of their kawaii world, It's their business.
>>9110185 I picked one up (virginity for those who care)! Tbh his lipsticks are not that comfortable to wear (Aromi's liquid lip feels much nicer), but they have great coverage look great on especially in pictures!
Hey Hungarian, you got any Dagger in your pile of swords that you could lend me for the DF? I'm increasingly disappointed in my Katzbalger, since it's too long to be practical and the Swiss Dagger I want will likely not arrive in time.
Are there any notable transgendered cosplayers? And at that have there been any incidents involving a trans cosplayer? I'm actually surprised I haven't heard of anything bad ever happening to a trans cosplayer at a con
there's this one chick who is going ftm and takes a lot of butt selfies. does being ftm still allow you to take butt selfies after you've transitioned to a guy? if you were male to begin with I don't think butt selfies would go down very well

Hey guys I'm in a bit of a pinch atm. My GF wants to do video-game inspired makeup and everything I send her (Edea FF8, Poison Ivies,Raziel,etc) she says they're too plain and she wants more complicated things. I've played a lot of vidya in my time but I've never really looked for crazy faces. I'm really not into makeup but it's her life. We're both mid-20's. Can anyone give any suggestions?
>>9130175 I got a semi decent haul on YJA for not much money. The biggest bargain for me was a childs shichigosan obi set for 200 yen. Also managed to snag a haori, obi and kimono set for 600yen. I am thinking of moving away from western sales, not fully as there are some lovely pieces available on eBay etc. but I'm tired of being ripped off for things like obijime, obiage and zori from places like ebay and etsy.
