Is that the reason she got more pictures taken? I've gone to several cons with a friend, and while she's beautiful, she's gotten more photos of her taken at certain cons because of the popularity of her cosplay, or because of how revealing her costume was. At those cons, it was kind of hard to watch photographers trip over themselves to take her picture, but I chose to focus on the meaningful interactions I had with people who were so excited about my character that day.
If at the end of the day, cosplay is a contest of who gets the most photos, you're... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Is there a way to make yourself look nice, even though you're overweight and chubby? Like this dude. The costume seems fine, but the way he looks and the way he is photographed make everything look like shit. Is there a way to avoid looking like a pear shaped piece of mozarella?
Slightly warm lighting so you don't look pale and sick
better posture, That guy should roll his shoulders back and lift his head head up, instead he just threw his neck back.
Get the photographer to stand back and zoom in. this will slim the face and make you look taller (mirrors give a similar effect, if you've ever wondered why you look better in the mirror than in photos that's why)
>>8766423 Is the last help thread gone? I wanted to post the questions unanswered and answer the ones I can't but I can't find it.
>>8768623 Did you try the suggestion thread first for that? Are you a big guy? I hope you are not a girl trying to do that. For the feet you would need invisible shoes so you don't walk around barefooted and/or take off your shoes during photos. For the bottom half you would need something to cover close to your knees like the... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Off topic, but does anyone know the source dress on the left?
On topic, for me personally I never wear OTK socks. I always wear tights. OTKs give me too much gap and it ends up looking slutty even if the dress is an appropriate length. Sadly for me, since there's so many cute OTK prints that don't come in tights.

With every special snowflake with a tumblr account trying to make up their own super cool new take on lolita fashion, I figure we should do it too! Here what you do: take some stupid thing shit has nothing to do with lolita, and fucking make that shit lolita. Make coord collage and post it too. You like hiphop? Well gangster lolita could be the next big thing! Wear cutsews instead of blouses, sag your bloomers, find a kawaii snapback and throw on every piece of brand jewelry you own. Who knows, your unique new style could be the next hit trend!
Western indie: >Voodooodolly >Necrosarium >LOTV Honestly I buy more vintage accessories than indie, but I love vintage-inspired indie stuff. Taobao: >RedMaria >DarkWhisper I think DarkWhisper is gone now, though, which is a real shame. They had nice gothic/classic jewelry.
I'd like to see more mix metal/glass bead/faceted stuff, stuff like Schwartz Schmetterling. Not necessarily quite as OTT,... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Favorites include Peppermint Fox, LOTV, and tournewsoul.
Tournewsoul is doing lucky packs this year and I kinda want to go for it but I'm saving for my dream dress too so yeah...it's so hard to save money during Christmas time. Wish more brands would do lucky packs though, they're pretty fun.
Couldn't find one in the catalog, so new lens thread. Please share photos, reviews, and recent purchases! Honey color is having a end of year sale, and I'm in the market for some new lens. I have blue eyes and need pink lens, if anyone has good suggestions or recommendations I'd appreciate it!
>>8765718 I recently bought the lens in op pic related https://www.honeycolor.com/beaucon-jewels-pink They should actually be arriving in the mail soon. I can do a review of them then if you'd like OP.
>>8765718 Is Honeycolor's credit card processing actually working again? It seems like it keeps going up and down... it didn't work for me during their black friday sale but I haven't tried since then.
Let's talk sponsorships, CGL. What is your opinion on cosplayers who are sponsored by lens/wig companies, or even mass-made cosplay sites? How about sponsorship programs where cosplayers are paid to post photos of products? Are they beneficial to the company and/or the community?
Post your experience if you have a sponsorship of your own, or if it's something you've considered.
>>8764975 I don't mind people getting sponserships, I'm always a little bit jealous of the free stuff they get. I do have a problem with people who are happy to be sponsered by companies that sell replicas and art theft, encouraging companies to keep ripping people off and stealing designs just so you can get free goodies is shitty
>>8764975 a couple days ago, there was drama about some lousy german fetish photographer, who offered 200€ sponsoring to a cosplayer commenting under their facebook post with their planned cosplay project, but they had to hand him over all the corporate rights of their taken pictures
I've been tempted to buy ad space for my cosplay page because I'm finding it to be a pain in the ass to get people to actually notice and appreciate your work unless you do titties 24/7; social media algorithms can be a real dick about what people see.
I don't do a lot of revealing costumes but I work in the arts and want to beef up my portfolio a bit for hopefully teaching workshops at cons.
I've met a lot of people whom are pretty low key and friendly irl but looking at their pages it's pretty apparent they buy likes. I guess its ok if... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Saw a thread specifically for "meet killers", but not for discussing meetups overall. Feel free to ask for any help regarding meetups if you are planning one as well.

> What was the best meetup you've ever been to? That's pretty hard to pick. We've had some really nice ones over the years. The ones I like best are the ones that allow everyone to chat, though. So picnics, high tea, etc.

Can cosplay lead to modeling, ect? Some cosplayer have built up a fan base and started acting (Luna Lanie) and others who are modeling for companies (pic related) Is it possible to break into modeling from cosplay?
It's possible, as you've already posted two examples, but it's highly unlikely. Best way to get paid for stuff like that? Lots and lots of fans. Companies will contact you because they want to use your big fanbase and you cooperate because you want free stuff.
If you want to be a model, pursuing actual modeling work will be a hell of a lot faster than hoping cosplay will get you discovered.
If you honestly aren't the traditional model type body or face wise (I'm not trying to be mean I wohld describe myself that way) and you're hoping getting popular with cosplay will get you modeling gigs by association then... it does happen sorta when popular bloggers and instagram users are sponsored by small businesses but it's a really far fetched goal and I'd reccomend setting more useful goals for yourself.
