So there is a thread on overrated cosplay photographers so how about one for really good photographers/inspo especially con photography. Personally, I'm a macro nature photographer and tend to avoid portraiture due to being an awkward potato with people but cosplay photography seems like it would be pretty fun at cons but can hall photos ever look really good? How do people get around the location and equipment limitations ect? Photographer: Janet Drake Photography and Costuming Cosplayer: Knightess Rouge
Posting my salt from the last thread, since it's dying.
Sorry again for how loud my voice is in the recording, but holy hell. I posted this nonsense in the con facebook, and I'm curious as to how they'll respond. The way they've defended their staff harassment is flimsy as it is....
Just sold my doll and I am deciding if should sell my other one. I also want to go through my Lolita closet and sell any duplicate prints I have. I don't know why im still so attached to these stuff and just have second thoughts once I decide to sell them. As a collector, I would love to give them to people who will enjoy them more than I do but I also want my stuff with her
Does anyone else think Cosplay Music Videos are some hyper cringy bullshit? Its usually bad music as well, 60% of the time its really terrible EDM and half the cosplayers are girls cosplaying League of Legends.
Most CMV's are excuses for perverted second rate photographers trying to get girls to let him film them.
Should I just get a wig for every cosplay since my hairline is fucking my shit up?
Tryna do Nathan Drake, but I doubt I can get my hair to look right.
Regarding the costume, obviously only have the basic stuff right now, but I'm working on making the shoulder holster, and am wearing these clothes come rain or shine to give them a more worn in look. Also waiting on one of those watch straps that he's got. Still trying to get rid of that baby fat stuck on my face too.
literally no one will notice/care that it's your first con so don't sweat it
some tips: 1.) bring a cosplay repair kit if you'll be in cosplay 2.) don't forget to drink water and feed yourself; pack food if you want to minimize spending costs 3.) also get some sleep at some point 4.) download the scheduling app if there is one, otherwise 5.) if the map/guide is only on paper, take photos of the maps and panels you're interested in with your phone 6.) stay away from people that rub you as creepy or unsettling 7.) have a budget...

>>9094413 Going, excited mostly for the bands, especially Chanty since I'm a huge fan of Akuta. Only thing I don't like is we finally get a "Jfashion" booth, but it's Dynamite "I cheat and abuse all my musicians" Tommy's and DADA "I hate all my international fans"'s lazy, half-assed attempt at lolita. $1000 for dresses and $50 for tights that we don't even know what quality is actually like.
OP, if you're going to make the AA thread, include all the resource links.

>>9089613 1. Arda Wigs, conventions, ebay out of desperation, Epic Cosplay, Aliexpress. Costumes handmade and commissioned mostly it seems. Otherwise, Aliexpress...ebay..second hand. 2. Not sure how to answer this. Maybe better quality? I've felt fibers from Japanese companies and they're niiiice. I see a lot of front lace wigs lately. 3. Hottest...I'd say Idol stuff, sports anime, One Punch Man, Magical Girl stuff. Retro animes are a bit hit. I'm seeing mostly video game cosplays though.
I'm not going. I had spent weeks making and designing props for all the costumes that I was going to take, and for people that commissioned me to make props as well. However: with this new prop weapon policy the owners put out, many of the people that asked for props want a refund instead, and I essentially wasted time on a cosplay.
>>9069116 That seems extreme. Did you honestly think that Supercon (or any con) wouldn't have made changes to their prop weapon's policy after Pulse? I personally think it's the right call for the con and they're abiding by the recommendations (or requirements?) that Miami Beach laid out.
I don't think the weapon's policy is that terrible. You can't have realistic fake weapons, no conceal/carry, no metal props, nothing that could reasonable hurt someone - foam and soft props are encouraged.... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Can someone explain to me why people hate/boycott the Broder-cons? There seem to be a lot of people with animosity towards these conventions and take a stand on not attending out of some sort of ethical reason.
I don't really cosplay and I have trouble talking to people, so all I want from an event is to have something to entertain me besides paying to go in cosplay and meet friends (which I don't do or have). I think they delivered. The auditorium was hugeee, well air conditioned, comfy, and had stuff going on all the time. Kept me entertained. I hope more events follow suit and start planning more activities, then maybe I'll start attending again.

>>9097657 Our friends surprised us with passes like the week before. we had zero time to plan, so just just put on a black sailor uniform and dyed some of her hair, I had cowboy stuff laying around and what not. the whole process was a mess
>>9097642 >Russia Anyone else find it funny how so many guys assume cosplayers are fake geek girls, when we have men coming to this board all the time who don't even know the names of the characters they're talking about?
>>9094153 >>9094174 I don't think it's the hobbies themselves that make people cringe, it is the air of how speshul it is to do such speshul things 'whilst befrilled'
>>9094186 I always think these types belong in a pirate coord at a Rennfaire. It's embarrassing to be around these types out in public, I avoid them so I'm glad they boast about it so I know in advance.
What's the deal with ACP events at conventions? I just went to AX and it seemed like every single person I knew was working for them wearing a costume for various booths. Is it paid? Is it cool? How do you get a job with them? Is there a union or something?
>>9093893 ACP is the main agency and point of contact between industry and volunteers for those who wish to volunteer and work officially at industry booths at cons. >is it paid? No. You get a free badge. Hotel MAY be provided, but usually it's by the industry company. >How do you get a job with them? Volunteer positions are usually posted 1-3 months ahead of the con on ACP's website, under Events. You make an account on ACP, apply for the said... Comment too long.

>>9093962 As stated, badge, and sometimes goodies/free merch/access to guests (depends on booth). Generally you will work every day of the con in some capacity but figure half a day each. You get a free badge, sometimes an exhibitor badge (depends on booth), which is worth its weight in gold if you aren't one of the groups who gets early entry to the hall and you are trying to buy stuff. You may have competition depending on the popularity of the costumes/character you are applying to. If you want a more or less guaranteed... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Okay, so I have a problem I can't seem to find a solution to. As of right now, I don't wear Lolita very often, maybe once a month, so my clothes don't get a lot of wear. I'm also very mindful to keep my clothes clean and don't wear them anywhere that may end up getting them dirty or smelly (around smokers, or at restaurants). I always wear bloomers and a blouse, so my skirts and JSKs can be worn a couple times before I wash them since they don't touch my skin.
I washed two of my skirts, and everything was fine until they started to dry, when... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
