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?

I went to my first con without my cosfam and ended up going home after just five hours. I spent seven and a half hours driving!

Two homeless guys hugged me outside the parking garage while the attendant just stared.

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
I've been waking up with feelings of dread every day for weeks, and working on cosplay is the only thing that calms me down. That and watching Simpsons clips on YouTube.

For the sort of costume approach that seems the most popular, circular lenses, whether tiny or huge.

If you wanted to look good, I'd go with oval or rounded rectangular, depending on your face, you know, things that look good anyway.

well everything can be split up, you just need to put it back nicely. i wouldnt recommend printing full armor to be honest. i have used it for smaller things though. goggles,belt buckles, other props.

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...

Were really interested in the cosplay scene in America and I have several questions.

1.Where do you guys get those costumes/wigs?
2.Are there any demands or differences in costumes/wigs from Japan?
3.Whats the HOTTEST manga/anime cosplay right now in the US

Thanks for watching, looking forward to your replies!

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.

about videogames, can you be more specific?

Supercon is one week from today! Anyone have their lineups set? Entering the contest? Feeling con crunch?
320 replies and 39 images submitted. Click here to view.
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.
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....

My friends have called me hipster jokingly in the past but I just got into lolita and now all my hobbies really do come off as special snowflake faggotry...
This doesn't sound too cringe-worthy. These "i smoke n swear n drink in lolita" types are way worse.
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'

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.

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...
