Hello, me and a friend were thinking of doing something like picture related for a convention (if it's not going to be too cold or rainy). I have never really done cosplay or anything like this before and have been to one convention.
My fitness is slightly above average, not as good as the guys in the picture (I'm going to be DK). I don't have the time or dedication to make a suit and after searching most of the suits look bad so I feel that's out of the question.
I wanted to ask, are people going to make fun of me? Will it look like... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
How do you become efamous by just being a cute girl in jfashion/cosplay? Think anzujaamu, pastelbat, or even Beckii Cruel. Of course you have to be at least moderately cute and there's some measure of luck involved but I'm curious as to how it works exactly.
Have any seagulls tried for efame before? Either successfully or unsuccessfully?
Never tried but I'm assuming it's something like >be kawaii or learn how to shoop believably >get pre existing tumblr following through aesthetic or kawaii reblog (e.g. pastel blog) >spam selfies >your followers reblog your selfies >more people reblog selfies >more reblogs = more potential followers >profit
>>8910505 i only know becki cruel from that documentary that was made about her, but didn't she start off by dancing to japanese songs in her bedroom? if you're that thirsty just join tumblr and do what >>8910523 said and you should be good to go
>>8909790 Get some mild steel sheet, 2mm will do, an assortment of hammers, steel shears or aviation snips/jigsaw with metal cutting bits or an angle grinder with cutoff wheels.
Rough cut the shape then gently hammer the shit out of it into a dished out stump or a hole. After rough shaping, begin adding in the fluting with a blunt chisel. Wash rinse repeat, drill holes and lace or rivet together where appropriate. Blam, done. 6 months later, but done.

out of curiosity, what is the dumbest thing you've seen seagulls get mad about? or what was the worst advice that /cgl/ has ever given you? how did it turn out if you did follow the advice? if you have multiple stories, please post them here
>>8895773 >what is the dumbest thing you've seen seagulls get mad about? 1. venting anonymously about friends while omitting identifiable details. 2. taking a picture of a winter coord while the ground outside was green.
I wanted to make a thread like this for a while, because the struggle is real. How tall are you, or for how long have you been active in sports? (or both) Being forever locked out of cute empire waist pieces, OTK socks, cute shoes and pretty much everything that comes from Asia, we suffer. What's your solution? I'm 6'0, with a wide torso and muscular calves from 16 years of swimming. Most of the time I buy the cute things F21 has been selling, since I really like gyaru and larme-kei. I also started looking into sewing recently so I can alter clothes that... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>8910124 Well perhaps think about what cosplays you wanna do for your body type. If your flab is hanging then perhaps do something about it. But if you're a landwhale please don't cosplay as sexy characters.
Just learn to tailor your costumes to your body. Most of the horrible fat cosplays are the result of people wearing costumes made for a different body shape and then just sizing it up. There is more to tailoring than that and if you do it well, you can make your costume look so much better. Aside from that, there is chubby, and then there's fat with cottage cheese thighs. Take care of your skin and body, and don't use "fat shaming" as an excuse for shit cosplays.
>>8913121 It makes me sad because before it blew up I wanted to cosplay Totty just to walk around the con in when I don't feel like dressing up too nice or something. But now I feel like that would make me a target for whales and glompers.

Basic routine for acne prone skin: The idea of this routine is - not to irritate your skin with physical exfoliation (i.e. all scrubs, clairsonics etc.) as irritation can lead to acne! -help clear up current acne -provide moisture so that your skin doesn't over-produce oil to compensate for you stripping it with harsh cleansers.

>>8878622 You have multiple steps in your routine that could be drying you out and irritating your skin. I think you might need to stop physically exfoliating with your face brushes and also cut back on the African black soap, as that is pretty alkaline and can be both drying and irritating. Keep your current moisturiser and think about adding a gentle chemical exfoliant to help with your blackheads and whiteheads
>>8914948 I only remember one where someone posted a side by side compare with a slim Asian girl in a salo that fit then our favorite queen in her bunny salo that...did not fit...one side said 'yes' the other 'no'.

>>8864213 I have two coords for Friday and Saturday, and Sunday I'll be in normie stuff. I do press so depending on how many more guests they announce will affect how many interviews I do. Me and my friends plan on ordering takeout from a restaurant nearby to compensate for the lack of food court. Mostly I'm hyped for friends because I've got about 10 different people flying in that have never been to AB before. Crossing my fingers that I have time for everything haha.
Hey gulls. I know this comes up now and then. Lacemarket sucks in many ways but we're all stuck with it.
I decided to make a 2nd hand marketplace as a side project for myself and wanted to make it jfashion/lolita themed. I already have a couple of ideas for it and was wondering what you think about them and what else you would like.

My biggest issue with j-fashion mart in general is: What about replicas? Lolita is plagued with a lot of replica issues, but so are other brands, Liz Lisa being a j-fashion is one that is arguably even worse than the AP replica issues.
What would you labeling something a replica? It's kind of hard, because said real life example was this girl I know who buys dirt cheap taobao all the time. She searched eBay for "thigh high boots" or something similar and ended up buying brown Liz Lisa replicas. When I asked her why she's wearing LL replicas, she had... Comment too long.

If it's gonna be general jfashion themed, how are you gonna keep it from filling up with random crap? Like someone's granny sweater that can totally be worn for fairy kei!! Make it Japanese brands only? Make policies for each jfashion?
I'm not knocking it just wondering how well it will work. It seems like outside of lolita with very strict guidelines, people will try to bend the rules of what constitutes jfashion as much as possible. I think it's a good idea though and I'd love a place for other jfashions since I don't wear lolita.
Gulls, what did you think was lolita when you first started. What was your first "coord"? Pic related >be me >2 years ago at 17 >go with mom to h and m, find this stuff >my mom: "totally rori" for some reason totally agree
