Got 'The Life-changing Magic of Tidying up' as a Christmas gift from my sister. While I love the idea of getting rid of stuff and having more space in my place I don't feel it's really truly achievable as a cosplayer. Once upon a time I couldn't imagine selling my costumes but now that I live in a 1 bed, 1 bath apartment with limited shared garage space I totally get it. I would like to attempt to cut down on my clutter but with all my materials, tools and costumes I wouldn't know where to start.

I haven't done very much cosplay, but I live in a room at my mum's (housing is expensive and the place is close as fuck to my uni). I have one and a half drawer shelves allocated to my sewing and costume shit, which contains some of my lighter/more fragile fabrics, smaller costume pieces (ears/tails/masks), and all of my wigs which I keep in large minigrips, with longer ones braided and smaller ones just stuffed in. don't know what I'd do with a fully curly wig, but my shitty home-straightened one was braidable. larger bolts sit in plastic bags under my bed. my cosplay stuff fits into my closet alright. tools are stored in assorted places around the house, and my workplace is either my desk or the kitchen table depending on how much space I need. I don't hoard materials but I'm a huge procrastinator so I still have fabric bought for projects years ago sitting around, and the only fabric I've bought completely randomly is the rabbit one on pic related, because cute, cheap and Engrish.
Request worn photos of certain pieces or pieces of a similar style, JSKs, OPs, headwear, OTKs/tight, etc.
I just bought pic related and am looking for a certain worn photo of it. If I can remember correctly, she had a bright blonde bob cut, blue makeup, and was slightly larger than usual Moitie measurements. Does anyone have this/these photo(s)?
>>8784854 Did you buy it off WW? I hope you were one of the anons who had it as a dream dress. I don't have the picture saved, but you're thinking of a girl who goes by DivineCross (http://divinecross.tumblr.com/). Go through her archive to find it.
No cosplay groups since I'm not really into the florida cosplay comm. Since I'm making a big investment this year theres only three cons i'm attending. MegaCon (yeah expensive as fuck but eh?) Metrocon (haven't been there in years) and of course Awa, my favourite con of the year.
>>8784823 > Any cons in your area coming up? Omni in March I think? Other than that there's just Mega but that's not for a good while.
> What cons are you planning on attending this 2016? Mega, Metro, Tampa Bay, AFO, Holmat, maybe Super?
> any big cosplay groups being planned this year? I legit have absolutely no idea what I'll be making come 2016 aside from Tatsumaki from OPM. Everything else is completely... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Forever 21 usually has some cute stuff that can be worn in a casual jfashion sort of way. You just have to dig around for it. If you're going in to the store, do a quick check of each room. If you see a few things you like in one room, then that's the place to go digging for more similar pieces. They often have multiple styles all squeezed onto the same rack so you won't be able to see everything without taking a closer look. On the flip side, if you don't like a room at first glance you're probably not going to find anything you like in that room. Each... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>i look down upon girls only wearing lolita at cons and meetups they just aren't lolita to me. Same with girls with like three bodyline outfits in their wardrobe claiming to be lolita
I wear lolita nearly everyday. I am not saying everyone should dress lolita 24/h but nit just for cons and meetups. Also meetups are mainly to show off and it's like a contest to who has the most brand and who's the prettiest and shit. So i'm a lone lolita. I might sound like a speshul... Comment too long.

I guess you've never been to a meetup before but my comm is super tight knit and meetups for us are pretty much 'let's go do xyz thing together' Not everyone has the luxury of being able to wear lolita all the time. I go out when I can with my lolita friends and I don't think there's anything to look down on for that? Stop being so stuck up lmao.
>>8782792 Holy shit anon are you me? I mean, I'm not a rorita but only because just buying a few outfits to show off at rori events seems unnecessary. Unless I'd take the plunge and switch out my entire wardrobe and lifestyle it just seems the same as any other elaborate costume. Just not worth it.
>>8782797 I think OP is talking about people who have a few OTT coords at their disposal that they wear to conventions and other special events (I could be wrong though); if that's the case I can see where they're coming from. When people plan coords months in advance, buy a whole bunch of items that match individual dresses (so they have a few outfits rather than a complete wardrobe), and dress up only for special occasions, it makes the fashion seem more like a costume or fancy dress rather than an actual street...

I got a beginners metal casting kit last year in Ireland and I've been making some custom pendants for people with it. Right now I'm just making plaster molds and prying/carving the metal out of it. It's a lot of fun.
