Are you after enamel stuff or acrylic stuff??

Automatic Honey is kind of really specific.. I don't think I have seen anything EXACTLY like it throughout my Taobao travels..

Though, this shop has some sort of enamel pieces: https://shop109441219.taobao.com

Ill keep looking around though, I enjoy hunting things down on there!

I'm just wondering, what are the greatest dresses of this brand in seaguls opinion, because it's really 50/50 brand to me. Post your favorite pieces or dream dresses of it.

Lol I don't think anyone's dream dress is IW and I say this as someone whose wardrobe is like 80% IW. I buy it because it's cheap and easy to wear (less dressy and loud compared to baby, meta, and AP). I can't think of any IW that I've seen scalped.

I did want Charles Crown OP for awhile and found it for a good price but it's a bit tight on me, lmk if you want to buy it
Pretty sure Lotta is a dress that goes for pretty scalped prices.
This. Also, Grazia Crown is pretty popular IW dress too.

>gets her mom involved
Fucking hell, how old is she? I would contact Paypal throught the dispute and show the screencaps where you said $60 was for JUST the costume and so when she said "I can only pay $60" you were under no obligation to send the umbrella.
Also tell them that you want the costume back if they want a refund because the $30 refund doesn't even make sense. Tell Paypal that as well, you'll do a full refund if they send the costume back.
If the person who bought the cosplay was a minor, you can tell paypal that the transaction was done by a minor which can get them into problems. I have had buyers who were underage try to get their money back from me but once I told paypal they were minors and did not indicate so, they got in trouble instead.

I honestly have no skill in fabrication/sewing. I just want to dress up this year and have fun at a con, not compete or even take pictures, just hang around in my costume feeling like pic related.

Question is what are the best places online to buy a cosplay that are decent? I know that's damnable here since all of you anons have talent and willpower and can make awesome stuff but I have stabbed myself with a sewing machine not once, not twice, but thrice.

tl'dr Where can I go for reliable/decent costumes online?

How do you guys feel about doing popular costumes? I would say in the last months or so good examples of this would be pic related, Steven Universe, Undertale, things with a big following online/otherwise.

If you guys are interested in things like this, do you try to do it as fast as possible (often where I think 'me first' comes in) or wait until the hype has died down so you're not one of many? Does it matter if you're one of many?

personally, it always makes me feel kinda 'ehh' -- mostly because the fandoms for big stuff like that are usually crap and i dont want to be associated with the bullshit. also its really hard to meet fans that arent over-excited 14 year olds
Why be just another (blank) when you can be someone else more unique? Dont get lost in the crowd of Frisks/Ladybug/Harleys.
personally if it's something i really like i'll cosplay it regardless of how popular it is. but if it is a super popular/flavor of the month fandom, i think that just makes it extra important to do a really good job on your costume because there will be so many more of the same character to compare to

Yo, I'm going to be going to Tokyo soon for about a week, and I was wondering -- does anyone here have any experience actually wearing jfash in Japan? Stories, etc? The thought of my own trip coming up has made me curious about how locals actually react to it. Any style welcome, just share away.

I wore gothic aristocrat and my friend wore sweet and classic lolita. Locals didn't really seem to care or pay any special attention.
No one will come up to you and make any comments/harass you, however, you will be secretly judged by a few passerbys (which I didn't care about)
I heard a lot of "kawaii!" from a few girls who walked by me which was a huge confidence booster.

I saw a few Lolitas in the train stations but it is not common. Most of the people on trains or in stores will be in business clothes or school uniforms.Don't be afraid anon, just wear what you want.
I wore lolita for the last three days of my japan trip last summer. And there was basically no reactions, people hardly even stared (with the exception of a few fellow tourists). Of course my outfits weren't too crazy OTT so maybe that helped.

I drew up how I'm going to build the gauntlets, but I don't know what to make the inside parts out of. Some people make their articulated hands out of wood. But, I don't have the tools for that and I want something that's lightweight and I can easily round out to match the style of the drawings.
I swear, this is my last post for awhile.

Hate to bump something else off but there's no general help thread up and there should be. I'm thinking about cosplaying as everyone's favorite cranky socialist, Bernie Sanders.

148 KB,
Been awhile since we talked about it but Cosbox is still a thing it seems. March items seem alright and that "full sized magical girl pattern" is most definitely the Simplicity Sailor Moon pattern that was probably bought up during Joann's 5 for $5 sales. The Sparkle Pipsi bow is a cute idea but that tutorial has been online forever and it's not like the materials are hard to find.

Also there's another gofundme? For a better box that can be a "cosplay storage box?"

7 replies and 1 images submitted. Click here to view.
I looked at the gofundme and that literally is a waste. Why spend money on a shipping box that has pretty pictures when eventually you might throw the box away since it takes up space and most cosplayers would already have enough storage boxes to keep everything in order.
This. Unless the box is plastic or very sturdy or has some really cool design why bother? They say they're going to have some cool labeling system or something but otherwise the pitch is weak.

The good, the bad and the blight.

As I've been planning a cosplay recently, a thought popped into my head. The cosplay I was planning was more of a casual look and the thought crossed my mind that I could go hyper accurate to it or I could take it on as a "how it would be executed in real life feel", a sort of lived-in look. I can't find a good way to exactly explain what I mean, but pretty much, when does /cgl/ think it's okay to take some artistic liberties to really become the character except in real life and when do you think it's more appropriate to be very loyal to the original...

It's normal for cosplayers to alter some elements for multitude of reasons.

Certain hair styles do not translate well in real life so cosplayers have been known to tone some elements down for practical reasons. Others change clothing items and lengths to better flatter their figure. In terms of your question, Jojo cosplayers routinely use shiny fabric to bring out the sparkly look the characters have even though the source material shows otherwise
I cosplay mostly from comics, and since comic artists often aren't costume designers, they don't have always create costumes that can exist. Seams are missing from important places, body parts are outline in a way that just isn't possible, etc. I take liberties where possible so that 2D drawings can work in the real world.
in op pic i would tone down the collar and jester looking shit to make a more functional outfit

i have done so similarly with gaius where his knee-guards in game are ridiculously large and look silly in game let alone real life
