Picking up from the last UK thread, particularly about Tabitha Lyons’ Patreon, speaking as somebody who used to be friends with her. I’m not going to get too personal with Tabs but I think people deserve to hear some home truths about her.
There was a lot of discussion in that thread about Tabs’ business nous and also, once again, her qualifications for judging cosplay comps. As far as judging’s concerned, some of the commenters are spot-on. She doesn’t make her own costumes from start to end and is open about that nowadays (she used to be more elusive about...

What people need to understand is that Tabs is all about the cold, hard cash nowadays. Didn’t used to be the case, she used to have an active deviantART account and interact much more with her fans but the Artyfakes and Tabitha Lyons brands have gained momentum since then, and I think Tabs is now where she’s wanted to be for the past 3 years. Any pretence of her being an artist has been left in the dust. Tabitha Lyons has a big group of friends in cosplay circles and no enemies of note but otherwise, she’s only interested in people who...

Yeah Florida sucks pretty hard. Too many conventions competing against each other with only one or two actually trying to offer anything unique. Plus all the tiny cons that pop up and try to establish themselves as a big convention before they've even started.
What do people think about the new Cosplay comp rules for Auckland? I can see a massive drop in entries with forms being due in three weeks before. Also I don't really understand the need to have judging the day before if they're capping the number of entries allowed? I think like doing one or the other would have been enough, doing both feels like overkill.
>All J-fash styles (lolita, mori, otome, gyaru, deco, etc.) are welcome! >Cosplay is discouraged, because then it's basically fanart of your character. >Please provide your best photos. >Artists: it's not a bad idea to just sign your work >Selfposters: When giving credit, it's a good idea to refer to the art as a freebie or commission, NOT fanart. >Helpful critique is acceptable, insults and taunts are not. >You should actually be wearing your coord, not "Draw me in X!" >Have fun!
It's been a while since I've posted on this thread, I usually just like to admire all the drawings now haha. But I just went to a meet up yesterday and wold love it if someone drew me! It was a planet and stars themed meet. My inspiration was Queen Serenity (weebish, I know) but I commissioned a glorious dress for it!
There's an entire thread dedicated to SU, lets have one for other Western toons. I'd love to see some characters or character designs that aren't often cosplayed. Pic related, I've never seen another person do Lazy Susan from GF.
>>8635927 Fair enough. Question though, why is it that SU is so popular to cosplay shit from, but all the other Western cartoons barely get any attention from cosplayers? Did all the Homestucks just grow up and miss painting themselves so they switched to the newest Flavor of the Month?
>>8630797 i want old vkei to make a comeback. i want these big ass hairdos and clothes to be incorporated. I love the old vkei style, I how well organized the community of fashion is like compared to lolitas do. Recently i saw photos on my twitter about visual kei cosplay in a bar in Japan, looks fun. also i abosuletely love this photo as well as all their hair and outfits. it's beautifully adorned, especially my first love's hair. like the color's and streaks.
This is a thread for all you men out there who keep asking questions about getting started in lolita fashion.
Survey to get things started:
>How did you discover lolita? >Why do you want to wear it? >What kind of research have you already done? >What aspect of lolita are you most confused or worried about? >What's your height and shoulder/bust/waist measurements? >What is... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>8612960 >How did you discover lolita? visual kei -> visual kei related websites -> doll dressup sites -> /cgl/ when looking for convention stories.
>Why do you want to wear it? i love the look. i wanted to wear it as a teenager, but i was broke. then i butched up because i did not want to have people make assumptions about my sexuality. now i am becoming more confident, and feel like it is almost time to finally wear lolita.

>2. Learn how to do natural makeup. Drag makeup will highlight all your masculine features. i guess i should be focusing on natural makeup more, even though my interest is in gothic. i will try to wear more natural looking makeup in casual settings to git gud.
>>8546384 I'm trying to start up an aristocrat wardrobe but I have no idea what I should invest in first. Any suggestions? I figured I could get away with a well tailored dress pant and a locally purchases button up for now. Should I get a vest or a jacket as my big ticket item?
