Our board rules are simple:

• Thread content must be related to one of the categories covered in the list above. Off-topic threads and replies will be deleted.

OP should have mentioned that the picture was made by the fursuit's maker and not the owner, obviously he wouldn't invest in a proper coord only for showing off some commission while the owner doesn't even wear the character with lolita (pic related).
Am I terrible for liking this
No we used to have a fur thread that was allowed by mods. Furries as a whole are shit but the kemono and cgl folks are actually skilled, sane, and make cute shit. I’m sure someone got sick of fur threads but if you want I can pop out more.
She looks like she's a very tall girl or very top heavy. Poor thing. I think she probably hiked up the skirt way too much to cover her stomach.

Let's talk music production. More and more groups are pushing the "original music" angle. But since most groups are hobbyists who aren't making money, they either can't afford or don't want to put the money into commissioning music, especially since composers for this community are scarce. Many groups start composing their own music instead, to variable results. How much amateur is acceptable in this situation? Do you have any tips/software recommendations for people writing their own music?

if someone who labeled themselves as an idol only danced, i would not see them as an idol or net-idol. this is coming from someone who as been an idol fan for over 12 yrs. idols SHOULD sing and dance! even if they just post covers. at least show us that you have more than one capability. especially if you are not a strong dancer to begin with lol
I have learned a local love live dance group has at least 2-3 girls who are either FTM or have some type of tumblr gender issues. If someone doesn't wanna be a girl, why continue doing something so girly?
Because they want to "break boundaries", anon. By doing LL dance groups, they can push their whole "see! you don't need to be just a GIRL to do THIS!" shtick.
Well I can see why you think this, you're missing what it means to be transgender. It isn't about liking/disliking feminine things, and each person varies with what triggers their dysphoria.

Either way it doesn't bother me, if someone is a fakeboi or FTM that's their choice - not my place to be concerned.
I understand that mindset but it’s dumb. Keep in mind there are full groups of guys who dance to anime and irl idol music. You act like being a girl means liking only girl things and being a boy only boy things.

Who are your favourite "modern" old school lolitas?
Is old school making a comeback?
20 replies and 6 images omitted. Click here to view.
I love this look and have been doing it more lately. If anything, it seems like it’s becoming more of a trend of modern styling. It’s cute, but not old school.
She's my inspiration
anyone know what wig/hairpiece is doing those curls
Tfw I want to wear more old school and I do own an oldschood ap piece that fits, but I’m tall so I can’t get my waist super small and I’m scared to buy more because a lot of it is for a 26” waist and I’m 28”
Holy run on sentence batman. 28" is really not that big, even for old school. JSKs are likely to fit you fine, OPs will depend on your entire frame (shoulder width, ribcage). Skirts are the only oldschool main piece that will be a 26" waist with any regularity. Even then Meta has been making generously shirred skirts since the dark ages so there are old skirts that'll fit you.

Really since you're tall I'd be more concerned about length since old school can run damn short.

I always do my first outfit without looking at anyone else's. Then if it doesn't get good rating, I'll look at the top ranking and change to something with some of those items for the final day so I can get a higher reward.

A couple times I refused to change though because I really liked my outfit. It's not like anyone cares that I was taking a stand over individuality in a LN competition. Lol

Do you ever feel timid when going out? Lolita and other more colorful styles are some of the most standout-ish outfits one can wear. Do any of you just hoard all your pieces, never to be worn outside?
52 replies and 4 images omitted. Click here to view.
I love lolita and love wearing it, but as I’ve gotten older it has become physically painful for me to wear. Even a few hours meetup I must spend the next day recovering from how sore I get
Is it your feet that are hurting? I'd suggest shoe inserts or going with some more practical footwear overall if you're intending on walking lots or being out for a long time. It's honestly also just part of getting older desu, if you're out all day walking you'll likely be a bit sore the next day.
I wear sweet lolita, not ott or anything but I wear a lot of accessories, it makes me feel x1000 more confident than normal clothes, I actually feel cute when I wear it and I usually only get compliments.
Be great full you don't live in Cali. That apartment would be 1k here.
Sorry for being Snoopy. But what kind of job do you have that takes interest in their employees personal lives? I haven't really seen anything like that.

What is the cancer that is slowly killing cosplay as it used to be? What annoys you most in recent developments?

Is it “sexy” cosplays?
Patreon? Instagram?
Bought costumes or certain series?
202 replies and 14 images omitted. Click here to view.

On the other hand, you can now buy a perfectly decent costume, fully made, for 30$ from china now. In ye olden days you'd spend more than that at the thrift store trying to get "close enough".

Bar for entry to hobby is way lower, but bar for craftsmanship is higher.
Commission art instead you idiot. At least that actually produces something.
What I've learned from this thread:
Accessibility in cosplay is a runaway train that has ensured that anyone, regardless of fitness, physical appearance, or actual skill is entitled to equal recognition and automatically exempt from all criticism forever.
Cosplay is also relentlessly elitist, and if you show up to your local con in a costume that hasn't been hand-crafted by a sequestered commune of Franciscan monks, a cadre of con attendees in immaculate dresses will tar and feather you on sight.
A lot of people, male and female look at relationship and sex partners as validation and status props. Liking the 'right' sort of person is part of it.

I remember a guy on an old forum we were on who had this whole complex over liking fat girls and kept dating skinny chicks so he wouldn't be made fun of. It happens.

So should I cut a pretty clean looking feather shape then burn the edges? Thanks for the tips.
You could also iron black fusible interfacing to the bottom if you want a really clean edge. Gives the added advantage of the feathers holding their shape better. You might wanna put in a wire down the middle to imitate the stem for the long ones in the back too.
where do you guys get high quality cosplay wigs from? ive gotten wigs from certain websites and was dissapointed...
I need to bring back the wig thread spreadsheet, methinks
if you tighten your core during pics instead of trying to suck your stomach in, you'll look way better

Anyone know what the deal is? I don't live in NYC, so I have no idea if they were having financial troubles or something.

156 replies and 8 images omitted. Click here to view.
Other anons have said it best, and while I think that rent is always part of the problem here, I think they were in a really terrible location. I'm a local and the few times in the last couple years I went because I actually needed like a blouse or accessory, their selection was such crap it was a total waste of my time. I'd happily buy more brand there but there's nothing to buy, and it's really not worth going all the way to the LES.

I think a broader lolita or J-fashion shop would do really well if it incorporated a higher variety of brands, styles, and items, as well as if they were to move to the East Village or even near Bryant Park- somewhere where weeaboo locals and tourists are likely to already be.

They do seem to have 1 or 2 core staff and high turnover for the rest. I'm very curious now.
What do we wear for the tea party? It's hosted by Tokyo Rebel and not BABY, so would it be in poor taste to wear AP?
I know TR doesn't stock AP so I'm not sure. Should I stick to baby and brands TR does have?

Kek I was going to contribute information but I got banned for trying to post about it. Oh /cgl/ how you've fallen.
I would stick to Baby and Tokyo Rebel brands since they usually do coordinate contests and it may give you an advantage
lol i really wanted to know

Lately I've been losing interest in continuing to attend cons for the sole reason that dealing with creeps is an inevitability. Even when wearing modest cosplays or full-on normie clothes, it seems as if getting approached by weird dudes is completely unavoidable. It's really draining and I feel emotionally exhausted more and more every time. Any tips, gulls? Con creep horror stories are welcome here too.

What if the harassment happens somewhere outside of the con, like a restaurant, a nearby bar, on the street, or in one of the overflow hotels? What if the person is not a part of the con?

Re-read step 2 anon, police don't give a shit on or off a con. If someone is harrassing you contact the police like you normally would. Additionally contact the manager of that establishment and report said person if they are there.

This is like shit a 5th grader would know
Yeah but like what if they sue you for filing a false report or something? Most anons can't afford that shit.
It's not like people keep can get a good physical description of everyone they talk to or pass by. Often, by the time it sinks in that you were harassed, the asshole is long gone. Police need a description. You can't just say "some white guy with glasses grabbed my butt".
>It's not like people keep can get a good physical description of everyone they talk to or pass by. Often, by the time it sinks in that you were harassed, the asshole is long gone. Police need a description. You can't just say "some white guy with glasses grabbed my butt".

And what does this have to do with cons exclusively? If you're in most ANY modern establishment they will have security cam footage, possibly a credit card charge of said person to trace, or various other things. This conversation is turning into "what happens if I am harassed in public" more than "creeps at a con", seriously it's just like any situation that if you are harrassed at you go about reporting. Yes the two can overlap in areas but you have to realize most cons sell badges, badge check, and ID people to get in. IF you were harrassed you can work with staff, the establishments security footage, and other ways to determine who it was.
There’s so many stories on this dude . Someone posted a thread asking about him but I woke up and it was gone I know san lurks these threads so he probably had something to do with it I’m sure someone will post the story here soon
