How old is "too old to start cosplay"
10 replies and 2 images submitted. Click here to view.
You're too old to start cosplaying when you're literally dead.
I think its a matter of how healthy you are, rather than age.

If youre well enough to get around a convention center , even if only for a few hours, than you're still young (or well enough) to start cosplay. If you go to more western based and generally 'older' cons, you'll find find tons of people that are older than 40, 50, and even beyond that. Plus a lot of older people like to dress in historical costumes for ren faires and such.

Personally I dont endorse blocking a whole aisle...

You can't be too old to cosplay, though I personally believe you can be too old to cosplay certain characters. 35 year olds dressing as 15 year olds doesn't look right.

1. you don't
2. you cosplay it but make it like MANGUMIN instead of regular megumin
3. tell your dad to suck a dick and that if he accuses you of being gay it's because he has unresolved issues involving his own attractions to men that he doesn't want to face

(The two events aren't affiliated, but Sausomecon is doing a Dottecon one day thing at the Wyandotte library today for free comics day)

I'm going to Sausomecon and looking forwards to it but I'm too old to be assed for Rekon. I don't wanna drive to KC and pay $5 for hot dogs and sit out in the heat even though I went for years as a younger weeb.

I'm pissed that the Sausomecon panel submission deadline is less than a month before the con. I just wanna know if I'm accepted so I can really get my panel in order.

Didn't see one so made one.

Picture: outfits nice but I think it's thrown off by the tights and headdress. If it where the back one maybe it wouldn't look so off to me.
63 replies and 10 images submitted. Click here to view.
Definitely agree on the headdress, it should be black. The socks are.. interesting.. The gold looks out of place since there's no other accents to bind it into the outfit. My biggest concern is the shoes though.. Seriously, normalfag shoes in gothic?
Holy shit I didn't even notice the shoes. I was too busy questioning the choice of headdress that I didn't notice the miss matched shoes.
It's bad coording, which is nothing new from this girl.

The headdress is stark, it doesn't fit the goth aesthetic, imo something black or blackxwhite would have been a much nicer touch. The socks clash, the shoes don't match, and she needs a wig. It doesn't even feel gothic, maybe she didn't know what style she was trying to portray and mashed up a little of everything. You can't just add white items to the coordinate because there is white in the dress, that's a novice mistake.

I'm excited because this will be the first year that I will be wearing brand! I'm a lonelita, so I'll probably just eat some sweets and watch Kamikaze Girls. Or maybe I'll go antiquing; I did that last year and it was fun!
No idea if my comm has anything planned yet. It doesn't look like it, so hopefully we can get something thrown together ASAP. Summer meets are hard--it's very hot here for most of the year. Sweating in brand is not fun.
That sounds great anon, antiquing is always great because you never know what you'll find! Are you lone by choice?

I haven't been to enough cons to awnser that, but in my opinon the most important aspect is the people. it's a social event's so the kind of people there make it.

if your really planning on it your gonna have to get a bunch of people and raise money, even if its a small event at first, i think if its very community based, and the type of people running it, are kind and very open and welcoming, it can become a great con.
No the people running it have to be competent at running an event. OP's picture if fro the infamous failure of Dashcon, run by Tumblr, that prides themselves on being "open, kind and welcoming" but that doesn't cover the cost for actually renting out the space and paying your guests.
>What makes a con unsuccessful?
Being the chair of a con and shit talking other cosplayers directly on the con's Facebook page.

I know the feel, anon. I'm 25, don't feel like it at all and absolutely dread growing old. But if it's any consolation, regarding your fashion choices: Your age shouldn't get in the way of you having fun. 20 is actually a relatively average (if not below average) age for lolita so while I understand how you feel I do want to reassure you that you're definitely not too old for it.
Thanks anon dude. Same for you,we'll get over it eventually. Also doesn't help all of my friends are in between 2 to 4 years younger than me haha...

So, I just purchased a BTSSB item that has some significant staining. I got it pretty cheaply, so my plan is to first try to remove the stains. If I am unsuccessful, I was going to try tea-dying it (the stains are a tea-ish color). I wouldn't wear it as is, and I can't see anyone else wanting to either.

My question is, what are your thoughts on making alterations to lolita brand items, whether it be tailoring, repairs, dying, etc? Is it ever okay? It is okay when the item is already damaged?

Reposting my question;

I want to start making something out of worbla. I thought you just made the thing out of worbla and you're done (plus sanding and painting etc. ofcourse) but now I keep seeing people using two layers of worbla with foam between, which would triple the costs.
Is this really necessary? Or only with some parts? Could someone please explain?
It depends on what you're making and if you're willing to line the back with something else or not.

I usually use the double method for things that you more likely or not will see the back of, like belts, and other things that "stick off" of the body.

You can just fold over the edges (think of how people who sew cut slits into fabric to make harsh shapes easier) for things like armor for the most part though. Line the inside with something black (usually) like foam, or a comfortable fabric. People double up their worbla to make the piece look "finished", but you can do the same with lining. The only downside would be it might be harder for you to attach straps, so make sure the fold over covers wherever straps would go, if you're making something that requires them.
An Anon was asking in a previous thread about waterproof body paint for pic related. I said I ordered a black "henna" marker (not actually henna, but FDA approved alcohol based body paint as an alternative to toxic coloured henna) and was waiting for it to arrive to try it.

I just got it in the mail. It works perfectly. It's a tiny bit drippy (nothing too bad, it collects slowly) and the ink does get on the inside of the cap so I recommend wearing gloves when using it and making sure it doesn't drip on anything, but it's very dark and stays on...
