So, I'm watching What Not to Wear right now and this girl comes on; she's dressed and styled pretty gyaru-like. I know that anons have talked about the lolita on the show before and they threw out her clothes because they don't fit into Western society's normalfag standards.
I'm mostly into himekaji and more casual j-fash; to me, it's feminine, cute, wearable and practical enough for everyday life. I want to look cute without others thinking I'm weird or in a costume (but more power to you if that doesn't matter to you)! I definitely... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I haven't seen a thread like this in a while, but what are some rarely-cosplayed pieces of media that you wish had more attention in the community? What about characters (from popular or unpopular series) that you'd like to see more of?
For me, it's Rhyhm Heaven. I love the series and think it has a lot of potential for cute cosplays but I've never seen much from it.
Usually my favorite con. Last year's re-routing around the Pru was a trainwreck, though, and totally fucked over a photoshoot I ran on top of a million other things. I hope they handle it better this time. By the way, suggestions for huge group meetup locations? Preferably not outside.
This'll be like, my 9th consecutive year going. I'm definitely going to go, but I have yet to buy a ticket, and am pretty undecided on cosplay plans. I'm looking forward to meeting other Bostonian anime fans again, though!

What is otome-kei? >Japanese for 'maiden' >Focuses on a feminine and quirky look >No set rules >Outfits often use colour popping, interesting print combinations, and contrasting materials >Generally has a kitsch or twee vibe >Sometimes overlaps with casual lolita but is still a separate style
Lately I had a discussion with a friend. She said that she'd like to see more real hair in lolita. I think that's a toughie! I almost never wear real hair in lolita anymore. I did it on the last meet up for the 1st time in years, making myself a kind of 20s hairstyle which my fellow lolitas seem to like, thankfully. My hair is on shoulder length. When it was long enough to go over my breasts I never wore my real hair for lolita. I think it only looks good in rather rare cases. Like if you really invest a few hours together with a friend to make... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
It seems to be a hotly contested issue among lolitas, but I honestly don't understand why. If some want to wear wigs, cool; if some want to wear their natural hair, cool. No one really cares that much as long as it looks good, and if it looks shit people only care as long as it is on an ita or nitpick thread.
I find the wig vs nat. hair about on par with: tights vs socks or cardigans vs blouse. It really isn't a big issue.
Although I'm starting to try and form an understanding of why people get so salty about it.
I do appreciate natural hair in lolita when it's done well, but I personally prefer wigs for myself just because I like having options, and I get bored with my natural hair a lot and cut/color fairly frequently.
But I do agree that if real hair seems kind of sad compared to a really nice coord, it kind of ruins the whole look for me.
Love it, especially sweet with real hair. It makes it so much more wearable, though i think wigs are fine too! I actually like a little bit of imperfection with natural hair, I couldnt care less if a girls curls fell out or the humidity made her hair frizzy, as long as its clean and they made SOME effort. It's a fashion not a contest and all that. I've just never tried one as I couldn't shove my hair& gargantuan head under a wig cap. I wear oldschool and classic, my hair (was) hip length and I always rag curled it or heat curled it. Though I can't even... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Let's talk about making armor and props. >any WIPs >favorite materials and tools to work with >tools that you think everyone should have >tips/tricks that you've developed or would recommend >tutorials or guides that you think are helpful
>>8786626 Planning to make the wings moveable or fixed? If Fixed, and not planning to do a dynamic style like the ones found on the AGP version, I recommend the wings on the 1/72 B Club kit. Proportion makes for a better looking overall wing over the newer RG and much more so over the MG and PG styled wings.
Many male cosplayers who talk about being ignored cite a common reason why is that male characters in general have boring designs. Why do you think these complaints still surface?
A: People are only looking at a small group of male designs or shows where the male characters are bland
B: In general male fashion is a lot less interesting than female fashion. (Compare the wide assortment of skirts, dresses, jeans, pants, blouses in a female clothing section to the selection of button ups, slacks, jeans and basic shirts men have)
C: Men only THINK these designs... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
A lot of it probably is from school uniform anime. Girls school uniform are consistently sailor fuku, which, despite being kind of plain or hard to match up to the series, are a lot cuter and out of the ordinary than slacks and a button up shirt. Samurai anime, sci Fi anime, etc don't have this problem. But lots of dudes are into harem moe blob anime and in those anime yes the dudes are boring or nonexistent
A thread died for this. Opening with a with a question or two is normal but if you want a multiple choice survey then use survey monkey, honestly this belongs on /a/. If you want to generate discussion about cosplaying male mcs then let there be a discussion.
I play the game, I feel like youre gonna get alot of eyerolls and snarky comments like "Oh wow goth alice in wonderland, how original" Id really like to cosplay Blazer but I feel people would just call me joker.
not quite christmas but I ordered my first dress and it should arrive next month, in time for my birthday.
I got some loose leaf tea for christmas which I guess is kinda lolita, but I have no way of making it other than just putting the tea into the mug, and I can't stand the feeling of that in my tea so 10/10 planning there I guess at least the tin looks pretty nice, and it's quite large (it's in a plastic bag inside the tin, would /cgl/ keep it inside the plastic or pour it out into the tin? I'm quite new to tea stuff, sorry for the derailment)

Soon it won't be Christmas-sy enough, and group photos are going to take a while, so fuck it, another self post of snowy waifu - this time not a shitty webcam photo. I know my wig looks bad, I should have checked it before the shoot.
>>8780405 >Cosplay-related tattoos You mean fandom related? It'd be weird if someone got a picture of a famous cosplayer tattooed or something. But I think fandom tattoos can be cool, but it depends on the tattoo.
I definitely rather get with the cool tattooed nerds than with the awkward autistic nerds.
I'm not a nerd in any way, I'm a lolita so no tattoos for me but maybe I have a bias for the more alternative folk?
