I couldn't find it in the archive or catalog, but it seems it is time once again for a Historic Cosplay/Costumng Thread. Starting off with the first recorded costume, Forrest J. Ackerman in a "futuristicostume" made by his then girlfriend and worn to the first WorldCon in 1939. Just in case anyone was getting misinformation that costuming/cosplay started in the 1990's or something....
fantasic dolly jsk in black and pic related in pictured colourway? (it's missing the two bottom bows so i imagine it'd be marked down somewhat for damage). sorry if this is super newfag info, i've never sold any of my lolita before and i need these gone
>>8969194 Altering music on a basic video editor is pretty basic depending on what video editor you use. Usually making It sound deep or high can be good enough. I would recommend using vocaloid songs so you don't have to alter songs as much
I think we can all agree on a few things. -Cosplay has changed and will keep changing -for now people are more competitive and everything is a pissing contest -sex sells but we don't all want to be a part of that scene -there's no good central place to talk about cosplay anymore (cgl is dead) -people are having a lot less fun than they used to as a whole
A lot of us feel like the community is down the tubes. We can't stop the fact that dude's are going to fap to sexy cosplay and cosplayers are going to exploit that so there's no... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
The issue is that people can't agree on what constitutes the "destruction" of the cosplay community. Where is the line of "fame chasing" drawn? Who gets to draw that line? At what point does self-promotion turn into a hunger for fame? Not even going to touch on the "softcore porn" angle you brought up, either.
The reason why the community won't "come together" to do any of your suggestions, is that there isn't even agreement on how bad the 'problems' in the community are, and if they're even problems at all.
Guess the people who were actually there is fast asleep rofl. Anyways, what makes cosplayers go nearly nude at cons? Exhibitionism, or is it just crying out for attention? Or maybe it's something else?
>>9016104 Okay wtf is San Japan thinking trying to charge additional fees for the masquerade?! If I want to donate to charity, I'll do it on my own time to one of my choice. This is fucking ridiculous. This year's going to be my last San Japan if this keeps up. smfh
How to properly hoverloli: 1. Set camera on tripod 2. Take photo of background without anyone in it 3. Position self in scene 4. Take photo 5. Go to Photoshop, place blank background photo on layer behind Loli photo 6. Erase legs on Loli layer 7. ????? 8. PERFECT HOVERLOLI
Or do whatever with your money. The point is that your wallet cries in the end.

I'm curious, how do you prefer to handle cosplay weapons of ludicrous size? Is there anything you can make them out of that isn't ungodly heavy but doesn't look like styrofoam or snap in half in a strong wind?
I ask because I want to finish off an existing Dark Souls armor I have, which I have already worn to some cons, with an iconic weapon from the franchise. Ideally this would be the Black Knight Greatsword I have pictured, but I'm not 100% set on that since it might not be realistically practical.
I've glued styrofoam blocks together and cut them into shape, using wood as the core and handle. it was sure light but it also bent really easy and I have to be careful when waving it around. But I mean as long at you dont rest your weight on it and you try to stop people being FUCKING IDIOTS AND GRABBING IT AND TRYING TO HIT PEOPLE LIKE FUCKING SPURGLORDS you should do fine.
What was the finish like on your weapon? Did you just paint the styrofoam, or did you cover it with something like a layer of plastic or something? The picture might not carry it across very well, but the blade of the weapon in the game is very glossy, almost glass-like in appearance.
I doubt I can replicate that level of detail, but it would be nice to try. I am also a bit worried that, if I do my weapon the wrong way, it will clash heavily with the rest of my costume. With a couple of small exceptions,... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I'm undertaking an exercise in pain and I figured you guys would know the most about it. I'm trying to dye a shirt in gradiated monochrome levels, but ideally it would be done with precise, clear lines to each level. Something like pic related.
I've seen a lot of batik style tutorials, but has anyone made dye-paints? Possibly using some sort of thickening agent (flour? Cornstarch?) to make the dye solid enough that it doesn't bleed into the surrounding fabric while it stains. Your tutorials have silk paints, but that's not really what I'm... Comment too long.

>>9051604 I actually learned how to do that in a class in college but it's been so long I can't remember if the dye was mixed with anything to make it not run. All I remember is painting the fabric with the batik dye and then throwing it in the microwave to set it.
I think the most precise way would be to silkscreen or digitally print on the fabric first and then make a shirt out of it.
On parking: i paid 15 at red deck, but the employees seemed to have no idea how their price structure works. They told me they dont even check cars at night for tickets, the ticket booth lady said they did not have overnight. I'm wary about buying a con pass that may be worthless.
Last time we discussed the eternal hotel reservation drama at Abunai, how much we hate special snowflakes who use autism as an excuse to get a room, lolita meetup etiquette, experiences of both Under the Sea and Japantag (DE), and Nishicon's retarted hotel prices. We also shared a massive amoutn of (poor) advice on how to get some cock and/or pussy during cons. Turns out you have to be active instead of spend all your day hoping for that cute (fem)anon to come to you.

>>9023405 Probably regular clothes, although I'm rushing an EVA-01 costume using foam (body), worbla (head/helmet), and a black skinsuit to hide my skin around the joints. Although honestly I doubt it will be done in time and only agreed to it as someone challenged me to finish a costume in two weeks flat. I just want to win that bottle of Hertog Jan Grand Prestige damnit!
Haven't seen one in awhile. >Favorite sheet masks? I'd like to get a couple for days when I want a pick-me-up. I'd like it to be moisturizing, I have combo skin but am wrangling the flaky areas on my forehead, nose and cheeks slowly. My skin is also sensitive as well, I tried some nugg masks before (except they were the clay kind and more gel-like ones you smear on your face) and they irritated me to all hell. I have a Japanese rose-scented one that's alright and Etude House's moistfull collagen and that doesn't... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
i was actually going to make a skincare thread today, thanks op! side note to the kinds of people who will be posting in this thread: please stop recommending coconut oil as a meme solution for every skincare issue, it's highly comedogenic and can break people the fuck out and give them body acne if used on sensitive areas of the body which are prone to breaking out.
So I bought DHCs deep cleansing oil to try the double cleansing method and I'm not sure how to proceed from here. I tried it for the first time while i was in Japan. The first two nights I idnt notice anything bad. Then the last night i was there, after using it my face felt kind of cloudy, for lack of a better word. I guess its possible I didn't get it all off but I washed with cetaphil afterwards. Anyway tje next day I woke up and my face felt strange, like my eyes were puffy and my face was dry. We spent the rest of the day in a plane onthe way back home and... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>9039420 I honestly don't know what kind of answer she is expecting. Shouldn't you want to support the clothing lines that started the whole fucking thing? I wouldn't stop buying Oreos just because there's 50 off brand ones out there too.
>>9039596 Now I'm craving for Oreos. I tried an off brand and it just wasn't as good. It's was like wearing Chess Story instead of Angelic Pretty cause someone told you that Angelic Pretty was being made in Mexico.
Hello gulls. Is been 15 days since I paid for shipping (using Buynosaur) and I never got any tracking number; I tried to message them but I nver got a response. Usually they take 6-8 days to answer (what the actual fuck, is this a joke?)- But 15 days seems even more excessive than usual. Should I file a PP claim or keep trying by chat and email?
Really, I'll never NEVER use them again, holy fuck.
