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...

>where do you think the line is drawn

Up to each person because people can think for themselves. I guess, unlike you where you need to make a pointless post for sheep needs.

>taking what not to wear seriously

That's your first mistake.
>People should never ask for other opinions and if they do they're sheep

How is this any different from any other thread trying to promote discussions?

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.

Characters from bemani games (iidx, pop'n, DDR, sdvx, etc.)

Characters from cave games (mushihimesama, deathsmiles)

90s anime (90-99)

Nadia Secret of Blue Water (the whole cast not just nadia or jean)

I really want the last one, but the show is over 25 years old now and is not that memorable to most people besides the fact the main character is black. I can dream though.

Endless variants, especially elaborate costumes.

Especially-especially the alternate Dreams from Overture.

There are so many options and Sandman cosplayers tend to stick to the basics.

I don't watch anime anymore but I still go every year; I'm a sucker for dressing up. I'm new here, is anyone who uses this website going?

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!

Preferably not outside, like not outside the con center/Pru? Or just not outdoors in general?
I'll be there this year It's more fun to just be in Dealers and Artist Alley for me.

Maybe Karamatsu if I can find shiny enough pants in time.

Shut your filthy mouth. Besides, SU and Undertale are the new Homestuck. Osomatsu-san doesn't seem to be garnering the same sort of crowd.

How rare is it for Peppermint Fox/Mulberry Chronicles collections to come up for resale or rerelease? I am smitten with a few that are long gone.

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...

Sage for not contributing much.

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...

>any WIPs

Currently working on a Wing Zero Custom mech suit.

>favorite materials and tools to work with

Sintra is my prefered material. Most used tool is a simple razor knife.

>tools that you think everyone should have

Having an adjustable rotary tool and a power sander can speed up your projects by a great deal.

>tips/tricks that you've developed or would recommend

For my masks I have them equipped with magnets for quick removal for when I need to take a drink, catch my breath or talk with someone.

>tutorials or guides that you think are helpful

Clive Lee's mecha costume tutorial is a great go-to for first timers.

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.

Movable though if stability is a problem they may have to be fixed.

Im using the 1/60 PG of mine as reference so the wings will be based on that.

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...

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 thought I could name some of these but checked google before posting and realised I was completely wrong. Also what character is middle row, four down?

Yes, likely most popular "cosplay" of western origin if not all origins

If it's Japanese-origin only, probably One-Punch Man

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)

all tattoos are trashy, but some more than others. they can be quite innocuous. OP pic is about as trashy as a leopard print tramp stamp

I think OP's pic is trashy, but it makes me more attracted to the girl.
>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?
