Well. I've decided I will cosplay a fairly sexy character but I am scared that will change my personal life. I live in a small town and this feeling is crushing me. I really want to do it but I'm already giving up. Should I do it or nah!?
Seriously ask yourself this anon. Do you find yourself pleasant to the eye in the cosplay you want to do? Or is it one of those attention grabbing joke cosplays?
If you've been putting in the effort, and you feel like it'll be a good fit, then by all means, go for it, and honestly, unless you get into some kind of crazy drunken shenanigan while cosplaying as that character, it shouldn't affect your normal everyday life too much.

>How do you decide if you're going to attend a convention or not? Friends. I'm not going to a con without a bunch of my friends unless there's something amazing about it I need to see. That being said, unusual events draw me in, not guests.

>>8899474 You might be able to, but I wouldn't count on it. It seems that the WAC members seem to rotate in and out, and there is a fair amount of traffic that passes through. It's mostly a thing meant for you to be able to rest and/or repair your cosplay.
Just wondering how you guys feel about cosplays that feature a specific "rendition" of a certain character. For example, "80s clothing Sailor Moon", or "Steampunk Evangelion."
My opinion: I don't mind them, but sometimes people put on too many "alt" layers. I can appreciate a 70s Sailormoon cosplay or a Steampunk Eva costume, but a genderbent 80s Rockband Sailormoon costume is a little too much for me.
I know Buzzfeed's Try Guys in no way represent the entire cosplay community, but their whole cosplay bit in pic... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
So i'm looking to create a plague doctor costume for a friend of mine, what would I be needing to make in terms of the robe? every resource I find just talks about the mask. What material should I be looking at? I've already decided I'd rather not use leather.
So as an expat living abroad, I just found out about Seoul Comic World. It's a monthly convention held at one of two convention centers in Seoul.
This month (3.19 - 3.20) it will be held at AT Center. I have absolutely no idea what to expect. I've read online, apparently, that you have to register your costume online, bring everything with you, and change inside of the cosplay-changing area.
That, and I have no idea if my sources are right, but apparently the entry free is ~4,000won (or $3.35). But I can't read Korean, and the entire website is... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Never heard of this, but I'm interested in hearing your story once you go. I don't live in Korea currently, but there is a chance I might go to Seoul as an exchange student next year. It would be nice to know how the convention is, if I end up going there during my (possible) exchange period.
>>8897413 As you said, official merch isn't as big there. The doujin (dongin) stuff is way more popular, since it's cheaper. Doujinshi/zines are really popular too, and they sell out pretty quickly for popular artists.
oh! oh!!!! wow oh man i've been wondering about the Comic Worlds in Seoul and Busan for so long! glad to see someone else show an interest in it. I've also found it a wee bit difficult to find info on it even though I do read Korean. the entry fee is indeed very cheap and it's basically a big AA. lots of extremely cheap fan-made anime goods. they do have some events though, and they list them on the website beforehand so you can see and sign up for some of them. my friend who went said it's just a big shop. unfortunately they didn't partake in cosplaying...

I had my second con ever a little while ago, and I cosplayed as Lucy from Elfen Lied. It was my first fully selfmade cosplay and quite a few people wanted pictures which was really exciting for me. But one encounter that really got to me was this semi-young kid (14? Boy? Girl? Not sure.) who came up to me, and with this super shaky voice and eyes wide as they can be asked if they could give me a hug. I was quite baffled but agreed and after that they thanked me with an ever shakier voice and said something that i/the cosplay/the character is amazing (they mumbled, couldn't... Comment too long.

A bunch of friends and I were waiting for a friend outside a con, they were cosplaying Homesteak and I was cosplaying Marvel's Patriot. As we're standing there a mum and her really young son (3-5 something, very tiny) approached us and she asked what we were doing etc, meanwhile her son was staring his eyes out at me. Right before they left I kind of waved at him and the kid shone up like the damn sun and waved back at me with both hands while trying to keep up with his mum. So that was cool. Though I'm pretty sure he thought I was Captain America.
Story 1: Ive told it on here before, but me and a friend split the cost of getting a picture with Bruce Campbell, and it turns out Nathan Fillion, taking a picture a few booths over and photobombed us. We got to speak to him for a bit, very nice (and good-looking) dude. Apparently Bruce and Nathan do this to each other all the time and we were just happy victims of the cross-fire.
Story 2: Cosplaying as Captain Cold (The CW) and walk by a little girl with her family whos dressed up as The Flash. As we cross I do the "Im watching you" hand motion (pic... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Didn't see one in the catalog, so mori-kei thread? Natural-kei is fine too, unless someone wants to convince me that they're actually two completely different styles.
Feel free to dump whatever you have, but if anyone has examples of coordinates that successfully incorporate pink (or any other springtime color, for that matter), I'd love to see them! Also interested in mori headwear.
>>8895963 >unless someone wants to convince me that they're actually two completely different styles I mean, they are. Choco was clear when she made the mori girl mixi group that she considered it to be different from natural-kei. But if you mean convince you that they deserve separate threads, I don't really mind having both in the same one either, since they don't tend to survive well on their own.
Hi /cgl/, I have a patch that I want to attach to a shirt while I cosplay at a convention in a couple of months. I want to remove it after the con though, as the shirt I'm planning to use is a vintage military issue that I might end up reselling. I don't want to iron or sow it on as that would make removing it complicated and potentially damaging. Can I just use duct tape or something? Will that work or is there a better way to attach it temporarily? Pic related.
>>8892896 Different anon who's debating selling this and has tried asking before. If you haven't worn it maybe try list it at retail? Are you selling it because of the material? I really hate how it looks and feels in person.
I also hate how this is the same name as the other mushroom print because I can't find a lolibrary entry or couldn't a few weeks ago
>>8892912 Yeah I am not to keen on the fabric. I absolutely love the print for sure, so that makes it hard to part with. But the fabric clashes with the other items in my wardrobe, so it's been difficult to coord. Which is why I've never worn it. So its basically brand new.
But if I do decide to list it, I may just list it at retail and see where it goes from there.
>http://lolibrary.org/apparel/les-champinions-robe-jsk It looks like a page was add in Dec.
what >>8892854 said. they shouldnt have put it so close to an even bigger con. aniblaze will likely crash and burn because most people will being saving theyre money/cosplays for momo at that time. what a shame, i actually was going to go. oh well i guess. i hope it still somehow works out.
Regardless of whether or not the hotel screwed them, they're done. There was drama earlier this year with them, and this is probably the last straw. Atlanta can't sustain a half dozen anime cons and they should have known this going in.
>Teaser for more cosplay cinematics to come. CospLA is a movement that will bridge cosplay and cinema together. This project was used and will continue to be used as a proposition to present to different clients. This video showcases different techniques that can be used for cosplay videos with very little equipment, no budget, no rehearsal, no crew. Hopefully this will influence more people to bring their cosplay to the big screen.
I've always wanted more videos to go in this direction.... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Say you were running/staffing a mid tier anime con and you did your best to have the central programming, events and masquerade reflect this.
but over the years you noticed that it was being filled with more and more members dressing up as non anime related characters and going as far as to demand more comic/western programming. This section of your attendees is growing larger and more demanding each year.
What would you do in this situation? Would you put your foot down and still run the con how you would want it or give into demands... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I can already tell you seek affirmation to a pre-existing, established opinion and not an actual answer from your tone of voice and this topic itself contrary to you wanting to appear to seek an answer from a neutral standpoint.
You are trying to make the problem at hand appear negative just by the upbringing of this topic itself, using words such as "going as far as" and "demanding" alongside constantly repeating "more and more".
I hate people who do this. Go fuck yourself, as you actually just want people to pat you on the back than for an actual meaningful discussion of open mindedness.
To answer your question seriously, yes, I would personally as a manager allow multicultural stuff to be mixed in together but at the same time keep the original anime theme on the table as the focus with no way around it. It is foolish to be a fascist and think that an anime con should have only ever anime, that's bad representation of its fans and is unhealthy. If you want an event to be popular and big, you welcome these new people in, not shut them out. Not only will it make this event better with different colors, it shows that it is run by people of welcoming personalities and all that is good out of that with it.
Fucking weaboo trash. Stop crying about a culture not of your origins and keeping it "elite". You must be one of those "anyone who watches anime with dubs shouldn't" sort of fag with nothing going for them in life.
The rest of the colors that go with the same set as the infamous blue cancer fabric. Not sure why it came out before the others. Either way great look and satin metallic sheen. These would be great for armors.
>>8883905 >What does this have to do with cgl Catholic themes in lolita garments? Revealing outfits in cosplay or gyaru fashion? Trying to incorporate, for example, a hijab into your coord? Stuff that's legitimately caused some ruckus in the community. Lurk more.

Whatever happened to the "girls on cgl are gross" meme? The only reason I started coming to this board back in 2010 was because I wanted to see what the complaints and jokes were about. Apparently there were a ton of secrets about girls farting in pettis and not washing dresses and stuff like that? I don't remember much but it would sometimes come up on other boards that yes there were girls on 4chan but they were on cgl which meant they were gross. Thought it was kind of funny back then but that was before I knew anything about lolita.
>>8882797 Aaah i remember this, with the screen with girls on /cgl/ talking about their period (in a weird way though i remember one saying she smeared the blood on her leg before washing it off? Ehhh whatever floats your boat.) and then guys from the other boards were flabbergasted that girls aren't pure creatures who pee glitters and fart butterflies and therefore decided that all girls on cgl were gross. I'm kind of immature because i always found "farting in a petticoat" funny for some reason just... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>8882207 Nice! Which print, anon? OP here, I'm thinking about using the money to get some essentials. I need some blouses, shoes, and purses. I also need to pay off a $450 dream dress I put on credit a couple months ago, kek.
I think it could be rather interesting to have a Black Butler cosplay thread. There are a lot, A LOT of them out there. Most of them horrible, a lot of them too animu deshu, and lastly the rest, which are nice and accurate. And human like. But they are difficult as fuck to find tho.
Any of you found a decent, canon-like one? Any of you cosplayed one and thinks it deserves a try? Preferences in makeup, or cosplay advice? Maybe it could go here.
Holy Crap! I remember lurking that ALA thread but being too shy to ask for one. I'm super excited that you are willing to do it again! This will be a cool way to find other seagulls at AX~ So will we give you the money at AX or...?
