• Cosplay
• Lolita
• J-fashion
• Conventions & gatherings
• Sewing & prop-making
• Craftsmanship tools/materials & tutorials

http://crosspistols.com/review-to-alice-itabag there's a really good review of the original bag! The biggest giveaway is usually the fact the merchandise can slide behind the white part at the front, I've never seen a knockoff that has the fabric separation like the original. Sometimes it can be hard to tell from just the bow, but this pic has stitching around the edge which is probably the easiest giveaway. They're usually the lowest quality ones from my experience too unfortunately.

Hey my husbando has insane character tax! $50 will net me a single canbadge if I'm lucky. I'm not a richfag by any means my salary barely reaches $1k a month (I'm part time because of health) but you know what I do? I save. I buy a little each month and I build it up slowly. I keep track of what's rarer to get and if I'm tight that month I'll pass a common item incase that grail comes up. I hate that people feel like they're constantly entitled to be a part of a hobby, especially a luxury hobby like this. You don't need a full A3 size tote with 48 badges and 16 acrylics, its ok to make a little bag!
I mean hey, you can also showcase your degeneracy so you can make some degenerate friends
>depending on series and character
That's why I said that. I know character tax is bad but I figure if someone is that desperate to make a bag they'd pick a character they like that's cheaper.

I'm glad you prioritize though and budget. Some people on FB will bankrupt themselves for merch.
Bandwagoners, people who deviate from what an itabag is supposed to be (still call it an itabag), not supporting official merch and defending shitty bags just to be inclusive.

Bad advice for most people. Only people without skin issues should ever put coconut oil on their face.
Go to a dermatologist and ask them rather than continue to waste money on products that aren't giving you the desired effect. Maybe look into fillers or botox (you're never too young for fillers however if you're young botox may not be the best idea, only because the sooner you start using botox, the greater the chances of it not being as effective when you're older and need it more).
NW10 here, that elf highlighter was nice for the price I guess? It's not very pigmented at all.

MAC's shaping powder in Emphasize has been by far the best highlighter I've tried for my skintone. IDK why mac isn't more hyped/talked about in beauty communities, is it because they don't have flashy packaging and marketing campaigns or what?
Go super basic - like Cerave or Cetaphil moisturizer, pure aloe gel. If you like Korean skin care some of the snail based moisturizers are ok. Don't use coconut oil, it's very comedogenic if you are at all acne prone.

Generally the formulation of a moisturizer also tells you how it is on your skin - lotions and gels sink in, creams and ointments sometimes sit on top a bit more which may be useful if you're finding your skin is losing moisture quickly
I used Paula's choice bha for about a year in 2015-16, ran out, and finally started again with cosrx bha in January of this year. When I started Paulas choice my skin purged some nasty cystic acne for about two months and then cleared up. With the cosrx though, I'm on month 4 and still purging. Is there a big difference between pauals choice and cost? Should purging be going on for this long?

For VM, people tend to do it right after they've received theirs (rarely) or usually at least 2 years after.
I'm just praying someone gets it and doesn't fit or it looks weird on them.

Lifting for Lolita gf anon here, I went and got a haircut and got some low shine, medium hold hair clay and I'm pulling back that hair that naturally goes forward and to the side of my forehead, and making it stick up now. It's hard for me to describe, but hopefully it looks better.

Learning how to take care of this is gonna make doing my hair for cosplay easy

Casual lolita means you integrade non-lolita casual fashion pieces into your coord, not non-OTT. Majority of the outfit's wouldn't be called casual lolita in Japan, only plain.
>Casual lolita means you integrade non-lolita casual fashion pieces into your coord
What the fuck? Says who? You can wear all brand and still be casual.
I will always love this so much.

Bottom half looks fine, the shoes work if you are inspired by old school or punk. Agree that the top needs more ruffles. Two pink hair ties from BABY or similar and a fake collar (or even just a necklace with ribbon/s like image) would have made this coord a really cool casual. I'd nitpick the length of the shirt, but it is fitted to not interfere with the silhouette so I'll let it slide.

It could be that not all corner spaces were purchased and they assigned them to vendors they think would make better use of them. If they're aware you're two business...

>mfw I spent $300 (it was 500, 300 after 200 rebate) on a canon printer because I thought it would be a good investment
>mfw I hate it and it's way more trouble than it's even worth
why whats wrong with it? and what model of canon? more details pls so the rest of us dont make the same mistake
Canon PIXMA Pro-100. I bought it mainly because I like relying on myself as much as possible instead of going to other people (such as a printer). Plus going to a printer is a hassle, and ordering online is a hassle too.

I would love to print out posters on it, but I've done extensive testing with different papers and color profiles and I haven't been able to get anything satisfactory. The only thing it wants to print well on is canon paper; on canon paper it prints out fine, but canon paper is expensive unless it's on sale and also it always has a low paper weight. I would really prefer 80 lb for posters and 100 lb for postcard-sized prints, but again, can't find that shit or can't get it to print out nicely on the right kind of paper. It always comes out super faded or shitty no matter what I do. I've spent hours trying all different sorts of things and wasting a lot of ink but it's still shit.

It's highly possible I'm just dumb as fuck when it comes to printing though. I realized the learning curve would be difficult but I didn't realize just how fucking steep that thing is.

Also I'm not wholly convinced >>9858363 doesn't have the right of it at this point, because people definitely thought she was a fag before this happened and she's also selfposted her own drama to generate more attention.
I'm fine with decora, this particular coord, tho, strikes me as not being able to decide what it is. For lolita, it's too much. For decora, too little. This might be fairy kei, but it's not quite. I don't like what's going on at the hem of the skirt, but I have no quarrel with the skirt itself.
Isn't she Floridian? We're just loud motherfuckers. We have to shout over the cicadas.
I strangely like this. I'm now contemplating a MLP fairy kei look for myself.
There are other MLP prints that would be better-suited for this look. That particular fabric is very bold.

No, tell me more.
I find that a lot of people who go for the MV format that don't know much about proper filming/editing look incredibly sloppy. If you're not confident in those areas, go for a still shot. A still shot will always look better than a poorly executed MV. Although, if you do decide to go for an MV format, here's a few things to remember. Make sure you're cutting with the music and always cutting to action. Remember that just because the camera is focusing on/doing a close up on one specific dancer doesn't mean the other dancers can or should stop during that shot. Also make sure your shots are interesting and purposeful. Don't cut from a wide shot to another wide shot slightly to the left.
when will idol groups realize that it takes a lot more individual and group work than just a few rehearsals for a song?
I know, right? Still holding out hope for Citresse, but it seems like they’ve been inactive for a while. They did say they were working hard on their first single on their story a little while ago, though.

Isn't that normal thought for companies to share subscription emails? I doubt sharing emails for similar interests supporting each other is a bad thing. Maybe this was done before the shit show but the emails come in now? I don't know. But i feel as if it's a little too much of an over reaction
Unless TitanCon stated in the original email signup that different promotional message will be sent, it's just not ethical to do so.
If you sign up for a discreet porn site would you want junk emails from a sex toy company without telling you so in the initial sign up?
Was going to go to TitanCon again but I'm starting to have doubts now.
TitanCon responded to it.
Guess for sure that's a con I'm not going to, then.
It's getting stranger.
I have 2 friends that never attended TitanCon and still received AniFest emails.

The only cons they attended we're ALA.
I'm not making any accusations but I'm starting to grow concerned as to who else is involved and how AniFest got a hold of my friends emails.

Someone mentioned violation of can spam law in the comments?
This isn't even a personal thing anymore. This is a "what are you guys doing? Are you not aware there are laws against this?" situation

You gulls know about this drama? https://www.universalfancon.com/ They canceled the convention a *week* before it started. Their kickstarter was called "Universal Fan Con". It raised $56,000
>First multi-fandom Con dedicated to inclusion, highlighting Women, LGBTQ, the Disabled and Persons of Color.

If this con ever actually re-schedules, it will be dashcon 2.0
I was hoping someone would post this. There's a Twitter thread that outs the FanCon VP as having been tied to at least one other social justice con kickstarter that also cancelled and also ran with the money.
Omg thank you, OP

Bro overweight is worse than fat. Girls will call themselves fat even when they are not, but calling yourself overweight makes you acknowledge you are heavier than you're supposed to be / what is healthy for you.
