>>8723384 If you want them cheap, and don't mind mass quantities, the answer is pretty much always going to be Alibaba/Aliexpress. You can also get smaller runs at pretty much any place that does dye sublimation, but it's not going to be as profitable.
My friend and I were brain storming whether to enter but all of our 'detailed' cosplay options have been done in the finals the past couple of years. Like there's nothing we're in to that has, I don't know how to describe it, other than level of difficulty of previous entrants.
And finding something to like or paying our hundreds of dollars just for a competition costume seems like a cop out.
Anyone else ever feel this way? Any cosplays you wish people would do?
>>8723096 I don't think your specific issue should be a problem, anon. Lots of costumes have been repeated over and over again for lots of different reasons. I know some teams prefer to choose costumes solely based on complexity or how well it fits a skit concept they have in mind, but honestly, as long as you don't copy a skit AND repeat a costume, you should definitely prioritize choosing costumes from a series you like.
But it is tiring to see the same five series in my country's finals (USA). Every... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I know we have this thread from time to time, but i need some suggestions for my friend to help her avoid looking like pic related
she has every intent to lose weight, but in the mean time she wants to cosplay someone. she was suggesting pyro or fem heavy- and those are fine, but i don't know if i should encourage it because she hasn't cosplayed before and i doubt she can make something as elaborate as pyro.
suggestions? big gulls, what have you cosplayed in the past?
Pretty chill. We still had our lolcows, but I found a lot of feats in cosplay more amazing because of the lack of wide-spread materials. There weren't 5 million colors of wigs and worbla readily available. Katie bear tutorials and sharpie dying were like witchcraft.
I also found cons less autstic (granted, I'm a bit aged out now, but if kids are having fun that's good). It was much less competative cosplay-wise, in the fact that you were just excited to see someone cosplaying from whatever series, it didn't really matter if they were missing a wig...

Pretty amazing, ngl. This might just be the nostalgia talking, but in ye olde day cons were a magical oasis that you pilgrimage to once or twice a year. The conventions themselves were shittier with garbage programming and guests unless you were at one of the huge ones like Otakon, but in the late 90s and early 2000s it was much harder to come by anime merch and videos unless you were in a dealer's room. So it was something to get excited about. It was also harder to meet other weebs and cosplayers in the wild since this stuff wasn't mainstream yet. Most anime cons... Comment too long.

One of my friends is pissed at me because my outfit lineup for an upcoming con is all rare brand, so now she doesn't want to wear Lolita with me. It's really obnoxious because she actually has Cat's Tea Party and Puppet Circus, but refuses to ever wear them (neither have even been tried on despite having them both for over a year) on the grounds that they might get damaged. Now she's making nameless FB posts bitching about how easy it was for me to "replace" her as my con buddy. She's not being replaced, the other girl was always going to hang... Comment too long.

>>8722656 She's not worth your time if she's seriously worried that you're gonna ~outshine~ her with your outfits. These kind of people make me wonder if they're in lolita for the right reasons (to wear the fucking clothes) or if they are more interested in status and popularity.
Be frank with her and tell her she's being petty and selfish by trying to discourage you from wearing what you want. You have no business pandering to her with your outfits.

If you're talking about that airmail chemical smell, it usually isn't persistent and will go away once you air it out for a while and wash it. If your scent is strong enough to transfer, it might be something else entirely.
You can try: - airing it - putting it into a bag with some kitty litter or baking soda - soaking it with some vinegar (it neutralizes some scents)
Does anyone else get people who like a bunch of photos but then not follow you? I'm not desperate for followers or anything, it's just weird to open my IG and find someone has liked almost half of my posts (not hard, because I'm pretty new and only have like 40 posts) but then doesn't follow. I've had this happen a few times with different people, just today I had someone like almost 20 of my posts and comment on about 8 but then doesn't follow. I just find it odd and don't understand the reason, I guess from my PoV, if it was me and... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I have recently purchased a 3D Printer, I’m planning on using it to make bits and pieces not related to things I can immediately sow or make myself.
What are things /cgl/ would like to see 3D printed? I’m planning of making a business out of it selling cosplay items or additional trinkets from more obscure manga’s and shows. Ie; Akumetsu masks, Behelits and other assorted stuff.
When it comes to leaving feedback, bad or good, do you ever check the feedback of those who have previously left your buyer/seller feedback?

>>8722339 I don't do it often but when I see a situation like the one you mentioned I do check up on who posted that just to see what their reputation is. I mean, if someone has a bunch of positive reviews and then one or two bad ones that don't make any sense compared to the positive ones, I do see what the reviewer's feedback is to see if it's true or just a grudge.

Make up a street style that you'd like to see, that is completely ridiculous, funny, etc.
eg. Cloud-kei >clothing tones from pure white to very dark grey >floaty/poofy dresses, puffy jackets, anything goes >as long as you look like a cloud. >rain motifs/splashes of blue or sunshine could work too.
