/cgl/ is a board for the following:

• Cosplay
• Lolita
• J-fashion
• Conventions & gatherings
• Sewing & prop-making
• Craftsmanship tools/materials & tutorials
• LARPing
• Discussing accessories such as wigs/circle lenses/prosthetics/makeup (These must be within the context of the board-related topics listed above; weight loss threads should be kept in /fit/, beauty and fashion generals should be kept in /fa/)

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.
• Singling people out maliciously is not tolerated and will result in a ban. 4chan is not your personal army. The singling out rule applies to vendetta threads and replies being made to attack a specific person, as well as predatory behavior like doxing. Discussing an individual in general isn't against the rules as long as it's done within context of cosplay/lolita/j-fashion.

Katsucon 2017 new thread-
Hows it going anons? Make any new friends? How did your cosplays turn out? Any one enter the masq? And post any good cosplay pics.

Shwit... I know that from somewhere... do you run a NSFW art blog too?
>You wanna be the one to send that shit out? It's hard work.
That's why you hire out a contracting service to do that for you. How difficult would it be for the con's CFO to factor the cost of contracting out the badge mailing service into the cons operational budget?
A con is as good as you make it. Be social, make new connections, spend time with friends enjoying your time.

A good Katsu for me is showing off some cosplays I put my heart and soul in to, and spending most of my time with my east coast friends, especially if were in cosplay groups together. I go to a few cosplay meet ups, enjoy interacting with others cosplaying from my series. I dont do a lot of panels, but I do enjoy late night panels, and bring a comfier cosplay to change into at night. I also find Katsu helps if you book a few shoots ahead of time. I'm a cali gull so I dont like the idea of paying for shoots, so instead I find my photographer friends and we just hang out, get photos, and shoot the shit, and then I usually treat them to a drink or something afterwords.

Masquardes are also fun, though time consuming. Honestly just take part in something. Like maybe try hosting a panel, or participate in the fashion show if you dont want to devote a whole day to the masq. There's plenty to do if you look for it and engage.
Difficult? No. Costly? Probably. That's money they could be pocketing,
Either go get your badge later on friday when the line is nothing, or honestly spring for a VIP badge. They arent that much more, and you skip ALL lines. I didnt have to wait in line for any panels, registration, or dealers hall, the other perks were nice too.

Did not get to attend, but had a good chunk of friends who entered, a lot of whom walked away with judges awards or prizes in their categories. Was super proud of all of them. Honestly the craftsmanship I saw going into it from my friends side was astounding, so much hand beading and detail work on a lot of them.

Major shout out to the gull from the meet who entered. So glad you did well! You deserved it!

Allow me to clarify, I am letting you know if all your gifts have been sent to you based on your previous inquiry.

Please think of the whitelist like a perk for successfully sending out your gifts on time.
I'm working my way down the list. I will get to you eventually. Please be patient.
Let me know if you did not receive a followup email.
I got your email and replied about the grinches. Check it out.

i'm not interested in people who try to shoehorn themselves in where they don't belong, especially if they're going to be creepy fucks like they are in the /cgl/ one

there's that EGL discord but it's so rigid and altogether no-fun-allowed
That's why I'd like a purely cgl one, not an egl one.

I wouldn't call the other one /cgl/. it's pretty much r9k and /fa/ that has spammed cgl for more women posters
>Cosplay, Jfashion, Lolita, Photography, or just cons?
I only wear lolita right now, but I'm interested in getting into other jfashion as well!

Because she wanted the challenge?

I'm having flash backs to duct tape cosplays
How is this bad, this is... amazing. From a technical point of view emulating the design of the uniform with this fabric is amazing
OP is vendetta chan because this isn't even bad, it's technically well made, it's got a unique look and the wig is compitentent. Get a real bad cosplay for the Op, it's easy.

Get it together gulls. she could have least picked better colors, added some structure to the bow and picked a less fuzzy yarn for the "corset" ribbon.
Also really should have crushed it with that lettuce ruffle. It's pretty much missing completely from the lowest pleats

How about we get a general thread going for "casual" girly styles?

Defined styles like himekaji, roma gyaru, otome-kei/soft lolita welcome as well as undefined street style.

Try to keep larme, fairy kei, etc in their own threads--but let's not get too hung up on thread policing.

imo, western sellers mark up the prices of these brands like a mother. fees and shipping can get pricey if you buy overseas but i stay clear when sellers charge $50-80 for a liz lisa dress that i can find on auction sites for $15 or less.

you can also find cutesy shit at normie stores. just style them appropriately.
I avoid those kind of sellers. I usually shoot for around $15-30 when I buy stuff since I figure that's not too bad of a markup. After fees and everything, how much would that $15 or less stuff come out to? I want to try auctions but SS are a little confusing.
The dresses retail for $90+. These days, some of them are more like $110.
$15-$30 is not a markup at all. Even for used.

Preferably male but anything goes

PAX East. Lets see who is going. Who's taking photos? Who's cosplaying?

I'm cosplaying some old shit.
16 replies omitted. Click here to view.
Riot isn't there this year but they held a cosplay "fixing" lounge last year. There's 2 cosplay panels this year, one's a q&a and ones cosplay&marketing, both run by the same people/
A lot of the time the exhibitors have sorts of cosplay contests and stuff, but usually it's not publicly announced- you find out by walking around.
PAX has never been big on /cgl/.
Why? Is it seen as not worthy of cosplay? I seen a lot of cosplay there.
I'm not anon but maybe because it's mostly a normie con and cosplayers are in the minority there
I chose to do it because I want to start learning to sew and it's pretty simple in concept. The fact it's at pax is a bonus

She's just rarely cosplayed. If her design were more popular you'd see some good/decent ones. I personally hate her design, even after the revamp. It's just ugly. That's probably the same thought a lot of cosplayers have, hence her never being cosplayed.
Why did you reply to me? I already said that there were good Gon cosplays like that one.
????? Vocaloid is the most popular it's ever been in the West. It's the East where it's just barely cooled down a bit.
I didn't mean a clean line down the middle because I know that is incompatible with breasts considering how large mine are.
I meant along the edge of the base of the vest.

But I don't share my cosplays here because I AM so picky and know where all the mistakes/poor fabric choices/etc are. Duh.

Isn't he a rapist?!
Don't know about this guy, but there was someone dressed as the Eleventh Doctor who raped people at cons a while ago.
I thinks that's actually him.
Whovian but way too far away for anything like Gallifrey One.

I'm in Chicago comm too. They're very kind and well dressed for the most part. The group recently got rid of ghost members but it's still pretty big. I also agree that the mods are really nice and do a good job running things. Not alot of drama, except for a few specific girls. I recommend you come to Chicago for meets, I know other girls from Indiana because there isn't alot of activity there.
piggybacking on the last conversation since I missed out. Im new to southern Maine. what comms are even active around here? Are my best bets sticking to Boston or NY?
if you had to fucking live around so many of them you'd wanna know who to avoid at meets. they're insane and they're everywhere where we live.
Imagine the worst Pinterest mom stereotype and add in an extra helping of judgy-ness along with the attitude of no fun allowed, then surround yourself with them 24/7 and see if you wouldn't try to avoid them.

This is a thread for cosplays that are mediocre or poorly-made but have that "it" factor that makes them fun.

It's more known for memes than the actual content.
There's actually a 4chan banner with them in it.
This is like asking who pedobear is.
>tfw i also didn't know what this was

I google image'd Sweet Bro and Hella Jeff cosplay and it's all cancer besides them. I am laffin.
A classic
