Buy stuff that fits. Honestly the shape of lolita is pretty flattering to guys bodies because it offsets our large shoulders.
I fit a lot of brands. I've got a lot of AP, a couple btssb, lief, krad lanrete, and elegy stuff. Blouses and boleros are taobao or innocent world. Shoes are taobao. Unless you're huge lolita is pretty forgiving with sizes. Except for OPs anyway.
I noticed a lot of my favorite cosplayers have abandoned their accounts, some even leaving journal entries announcing their departure and telling people to follow them on Tumblr and Facebook instead. Even some of my friends ditched Deviant Art for Tumblr.
So is Deviant Art officially dead for cosplay?
Oh, and if you do still use DA, feel free to post your URL. I'm looking for more people to watch.
>>8712859 Christ that new logo still makes me shake my head. It doesn't make sense no matter how I look at it.
Ever since they re-branded the site its really gone downhill. The price for premium membership has gone up drastically and unless you want your page to look like arse you better be ready to fork out the dough for it.
FB and other stuff is more relevant but I always preferred DA over them since you can present everything nice, clean and organized without all the bs ads and junk that comes with FB and... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Not really a big fan of the updated site and logo and as >>8712957 mentioned, that premium membership price increase is rather off-putting. I used to use and renew regularly but now, hell no.
As you observed, most of the community has shifted to other sources and likely brought their following with them. I used to like having a way to create folders and rearrange/organize costumes individually or by source but since letting my premium membership expire and seeing the kinds of shit that groups were allowing in (and as a mod...

I quit deviantart after they changed their policy so that they basically own all the rights to your pictures as long as you hold them on your site. So if they wanted to make money with your prints, they could. You agreed to the terms.
The community was shit too and attracted furries and fetishists so I gave up.
>>8711784 I watched it, it was so fucking cringeworthy. That brolita tho
>nobody knows that I'm male
I'm sure they do, judging by your ugly masculine face, and I'm pretty damn sure no one tried to have sex with you because you look like a little girl. I'm surprised xylia-x is in this, I thought she'd be above cringey documentaries, but I guess I was wrong.
Last thread was saging. It's been a while since we've had some selfposts- Show makeup tests, hall shots, WIPs, or just say what you're working on to help get the thread started. (pic not related, just grabbed from last thread)
I was just cleaning out photos on my phone and realized bought the fabric to make Pearl over a year ago. I have the bottom half of the costume done, but I've lost a lot of motivation with how the fandom has been going.
>>8711475 People who loose interest in something because of a fandom are weak. You realize that everything you like is also liked by crappy people? Are just gonna stop liking everything then? Treat yourself better than that anon
>Jadeのロリータ服は黒を基調としていて柄は星柄 。頭にはバラの花をつけており、髪は桃色のツーサイドアップ。ブランドはAngelic Prettyがおすすめ! >Jade should have dresses that are black with star patterns. You should wear a flower crown, and your hair should be pink with two-sides-up. Recommended brand is Angelic Pretty!
>>8710958 I lived in a smaller apartment for about a year and a half. It did limit my choices for what I could make. While I did have a balcony, anytime I would go to spray paint something out there people would post to the tower Facebook page bitching about fumes (I don't really blame them though). There are places you can go to that you can rent a spot to paint stuff and use their equipment but that gets a little pricey after awhile. Sewing small things like uniforms, dresses, and tunics were no issue. I think you would... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
i want to see more like this- less costumey, more "real" cosplays. where the dresses are intracate and the wigs are multi-toned and look more like real hair. is there a name for it? historically accurate? grounded?
>>8710926 I'm torn, OP. I like seeing some more realistic costumes sometimes, especially when done well/right but far too often people try to do this and just end up adding a bunch or unnecessary bling to make the gowns 'fancy' or 'real-life' instead of tackling the (more difficult) source material. Examples I'm specifically put off by being the style popularized by homestuck's FancyTier bullshit and hoards of inaccurate disney princesses.
I find that the above groups typically... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
