Recently I was assigned as panel coordinator for a small con that wants to grow a bit more so I've been thinking a lot about how I can improve things and give attendees a really great time and experience. I'd love to open up panel submissions to the public, but also have maybe a couple I can help organise.
So what kind of panels tend to be big hits and/or what sorts of panels do you like the most? And have you ever run any panels yourself? Anything ambitious would be interesting to hear about.

>>9111654 If you don't open submissions for the vast majority to the public, you won't have panels. I've run a huge variety of panels. Probably my best turnouts were for live movie riffing. Lesser known fandom stuff can get big crowds too. I did a Batsu games panel and filled up the room entirely. Did the same for a panel focusing on amazing anime series that younger fans or more mainstream fans wouldn't know about.
Fandom panels for series with annoying fanbases are not worth approving. SJW ones... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>9110828 Eh, I like that on some people, not her and not me though. When I had undercuts, which I had several and I always shaved those off. They grow back hella fast though. That could be part of it.

>>9102232 They're just so different from each other it seems weird for both to have some kind of business / money problem at the same time. That's why it made me think there could be something on an industry level?
I agree with the other anon. I don't think it's dying exactly but like most alternative fashions it's just changing. Look at current street snaps from TF and compare them to older ones. Overall trends fade in and out and general styles change, the way people buy their clothes has changed too. Wouldn't be surprised if there's more of this, though I agree it is a bit unsettling to watch, and I wonder how other brands will contend with the way the market and trends are changing. (specifically wondering about what moitie to be honest)
I've completed printing for my Junkrat leg, and upon wearing it and trying to move, walking with it is very hard, but standing is alright. So I think I'll just use it for pictures But I'm very happy with how it turned out
I was just scrolling around on facebook this morning and I a horror caught my eye: I saw this girl cosplaying Sailor Chibi Moon and while her cosplay, I think, was just fine...it was the wig. It wasn't ultra shiny plastic, it wasn't yarn...it was a plush hat. I couldn't believe my eyes. Thus, I have been inspired to create this thread, bad cosplay wigs. Pic unrelated, kinda
I've been looking at fabric used by brand and I keep seeing "burberry cotton" for some BABY dresses but google only gives me that burberry plaid fabric. Is this a mistranslated or does it go by another name or something?
I let my friend stay at my place for Anime expo since he moved up north for school. He wants to return the favor and invites me for Sacanime. I have no clue on what it's like there. What should I expect?
>>9117591 Lots of families. Lots of repetitive cosplays (stevens universe, five nights at Freddy's, homestuck, whatever else is popular right now, kids and teens in the peak of their weeaboo phase, annoying security, hot ass swamp ass heat, lots of good food places and cool sites to see nearby, decent artist alley and dealer hall, an "electronic dance" over run by memes, some good guests. Confused locals.
It's an much simpler con. Lots of kids, but also lots of people who have been going for years. Panels are always random, great list of guests this time though. Gatherings can be either huge or 5 people. Masquerade is also very hit or miss, though I've talked with the person in charge and he said they're trying to focus more on cosplayers this time, so yay on that. Also we're still stuck sharing it with the Greek Festival. So there will be part of the area blocked off for normal people going to that, but if you go into that there's good greek food....

It'll be my first comiket experience. Going there with 2 other friends who are otaku nerds just like me.
We've been to Japan a few times already, and we don't plan to queue up for hours just to grab exclusive comiket items. Would it be a good idea to just show up at the venue at say, 10am and just walks around to browse randomly?
We have H-artists we like, but the whole venue is so huge, I can't even begin to imagine how to plan our visit to comiket.
>>9117392 OP, I don't know if you've ever watched Saenai Heroine no Sodatekata, but its depiction was more or less accurate. You need to gather intelligence and draw up a battle plan if you are to have even a hope of acquiring most of what you want.
Now, if you don't really care and can wait for shit to pop up later for resale, I suggest either paying the premium on some sort of deputy service, online retailers which offer preorders (e.g. OtakuRepublic), or trying to land an order at one of the doujin shops in Akiba.
So what's up with Anime California, is it any good? I've heard that it's decent from some in passing, but other people are saying that it's the same shady shit that AM2 was, resurrected under a different name.
>>9113119 I also think it's stupid that barbie appears in it, since the film is set in the past and I highly doubt there were any natural black gyaru around in those years. Yet, I really want to watch it, because of the parapara routines
When was the last time you took apart your sewing machine and cleaned it /cgl/? Pic related is my machine after a few months of sewing fur material. I clean the outside often, but neglected the inside.
I clean mine my machine by taking the little brush it came with and my hand held vacuum, use the brush to sweep up the dust and vacuum it up and vacuum all the small dust that floats around. Can of air and vacuum works great too.
Also, make sure you change your sewing needle regularly. You should change it after just a few hours of work. I've read change needles between 2 and 5 hours of use.

Saw this on Simplicity's site and wondering what exactly inspired this? I know that they're trying to zero into that genderbend cosplay crowd but this seems to be getting weirder and weirder with every new pattern. Wouldn't it be a better use of their time to make more exact or really close patterns like their Zelda or GoT stuff?
>>9105408 I know what it is, I more just wondering why they need to keep coming up with weird outfits instead of just making ones that are replicas. That being said I have a soft spot for the Tardis/Dalex dress. Probably because most Tardis dresses are some monstrosity with an enormous skirt when it's supposed to be a fucking tall, thin box.

Was looking for it in the catalogue but couldn't find it so here's a new one. Anyways has anyone bought from the wig store Linea Storia before? Some korean beauty guru I'm subscribed to uploaded a video about the wig company with the owner of the store and the quality looked good so I checked out the site and it seems they have a premium line which is in the 10,000 yen price range and a normal line in the 4000-5000 yen price range, and I was wondering if the there's a huge quality difference between the two?
>>9089034 No, we are tired of it already. New topics please, as OP requests.
Does your comm have any kind of dress code? How many meets can noobs come to before you expect a full coord? Any special rules for ILD, like 'no casual, dress your best' etc? How do you deal with poorfags and the 'I'm a lolita at heart' people or the ones trying to half-ass it and thrift all loliables?
>>9070957 Ahhhhhhhhh. Good point. I saw them and only thought of matching the pink inside the jars. The socks aren't solid but have a very faint lace pattern too so they might look a little lighter when worn, but that would be a lot of attention right to the feets.

I made this as a prototype so excuse the poor placement of stickers and rough edges. Beyond fixing the structural mistakes, do you guys have any suggestions on how to make the design a little more mature/elegant? I'm not looking for classic lolita level elegance, just something that looks more like trendy teen jewelry rather than claires jewelry. So far I'm thinking of using a less saturated color for the frame, cutting the whiskers/eyes thinner and more neatly....not sure what else. Maybe less glitter?
>>9044923 What even is your design, anon? Pink glitter angry cat eyebrows Tokyo Mew Mew brooch?
Get a much finer glitter. Look to highlighters like pic related for guidance. The gem and the whisker bits just do not complement one another as is. Maybe a color change of the frame and gem would fix this, but I don't know. Do you sketch out your designs before you get started? Or do you just glue crap on?
This makes me so nostalgic anon. My friends and i would play yugioh and one of my friends loved skull servants. He eventually made a skull servant deck. I just find them really funny and my friends would joke about them all the time
I'm not a cosplayer so sorry I have no actually advice. Good luck anon!
