• 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.

I love skirts on other people, but they sit weirdly on me. It makes me sad because they're much more versatile than JSKs and OPs in my opinion.

How many of you opened instagram today and got fucked in the ass with how many "follow me on VERO!" posts because I've been raging about it all day.

From the rumours going around:
>currently in T&C they can use your posts royalty free
>pay for subscribtion???

That's it? Sounds like fb which is already connected to Insta. Why the fuck?
>>
>>9794297
Same here. A few cosplayer friends have posted about it. But i'm not doing that thing, honestly. It just seems like some sort of bandwagon for me.
>>
You pay Vero a monthly subscription, not the user. So youd pay 10$ a year or whatever just to be on the app.

I think, while the fee isnt much, it cuts out a lot of people and fans of cosplayers because some people are in school and dont have the means or a way to pay this subscription fee even if its only <$20

The use of your photos, from what ive read, is that you own your photos but by posting them on their app they are free to use them however they want (they being Vero).
>>
>>9794530
To add on to this. If youre going to pay monthly to view cosplayers that you like just give the money to their patreons or something instead and get actual bonus content. I dont personally have a patreon but that would make more sense vs. a paid version of instagram minus the algorithm everyone hates.

>>9793729
half the people I followed mentioned it, all on the same day. Was extremely weird.

The fact it is mobile only lets me know it is most likely a garbage thing.

So how does your boyfriend feel about your love of cosplay/lolita?

Is he fan too or does he give you crap for it?

Happy valentines by the way

Women don’t care about having men like what they like. Just say whatever comes to your mind, whether you like it or not. If you’re compatible, you’re compatible. If you’re not, you’re not. Never lie about what you like to your girl, that’s a woman’s job, pretending to give a shit.

My bf thinks I'm hot in cosplay and wants to have sex in my costumes but that's not happening since it took months to make and isn't for that. We just went to our first con together though and now he thinks it's a selfish hobby and doesn't like it/me cosplaying in public. Feeling pretty shitty about it this week. Happy Valentines Day.

>>9794513
Dump his ass. But seriously, have you tried bringing up couple cosplay? It's also pretty shitty if he keeps pestering you for cosplay sex even after saying no each time.

>>9794513
Are they really intricate costumes are can you just buy a shitty one to wear for fucking? Like is it just a maid outfit type deal or are we talking really complicated shit?

My boyfriend really likes it and wants to cosplay as well. He even went with me and some friends to one of the cons, had a pretty good time!

I've been taking a break from cosplay/cons for over a year now, but we've talked about both general cosplays and couple cosplays we can do when we decide to get back into it.

Classy preppy. Berets, classic maryjanes, small bows, braids, etc. classy bag such as violin bag or nice leather satchel.

If you wanted to get fancy you could add a colour, probably red or maybe green would be nice.

>>9793596

For accessories, you can't really go wrong with pearls, they work across substyles and even cheaper pearls usually look okay. I think a choker would work nicely with that square neckline. IW makes a few pearl chokers themselves, if you want to keep it brand.

Same but my anger is not from my job but from my past as my dad got away with a lot of crime and just generally being shitty to women.

I feel like a lot of people get off easy for the bad things they do.

It makes me feel better to know that I can lay into someone for their bullshit comments. I don't care if they don't stop either. As long as I get to be the one shitting on them because they truly deserve it.

I lie about my measurements all the time, it's such a weird petty thing and I don't really know why I do it. I have a 4cm range for waist and 6cm range for bust, going on the low end when I want to sound thinner, the middle I use when I'm asking about if something will fit me for honest information, and then the higher side is for when I'm selling things so more people will think stuff fits them maybe at to reassure my very nice but plus size friends that I'm not THAT skinny - see I'm above the recommended waist! I'm at that akward point where you fit some old IW/VM/MM but not all so all of the measurements are believable, I have no idea why I fib about it so much.

Honestly, black girls are naturally predisposed to having big butts/hips more often than other races. They used to get mocked for it back in the 90s and early 2000s, and they were even turned into sideshow freaks in the days of slavery, but now that it's "trendy" to not be flat as a board, every other woman is stuffing themselves with plastic, and jelly racist chicks like to pretend all curvy black women must have fake bodies (like they probably do).

Might as well post my favorite pic of all time, honestly, since OP asked for a picture of me. I was at my first big convention (local Comic Con, actually). I pretty much marathon'd the whole thing (3 days going) and this pic is from the second day. This Ladypool was super sweet and even pulled me for this pose, which came out pretty good.

Shameless self posting, yes.

Great work getting the last thread deleted, assholes.

nah. why would we drive out 5 hours for a shitshow like matsuri? the only people still going either bought a pass a long time ago or happen to live in the area and cant pass up a local con.
>>
>>9794492
That's pretty much it, as I am a Houstonian myself. Aside from AM's retarded fanboys, the only reason that a few people I know from around here are going is because they can't get a refund for their pass and/or their hotel room, since I know some paid for hotel with debit. There's lots of cosplayers around Houston that have only *JUST* heard of the AM debacle mainly because they're not in the lolita community, and some don't even use social media much at all. These are people I can forgive, and I think that the boycott community should be more forgiving to, as a word of advice.

I think I know and have heard of about a hundred people on my friends list that say this is their absolute last AM for the above reasons, and refuse to spend any extra money that'll go toward the Leighs. And I know even more people who aren't going in the first place, or have just decided not to attend because of the Overwatch and/or Steven Universe voice actors not attending.

For those I know who aren't attending that also bought passes, a good majority of them are holding onto those passes in order to not encourage anyone else to go. Their money is gone, which is unfortunate for them and in general, but at least they're preventing more money from going towards the convention scamming more attendees and guests.

Yes it's a brand, mostly purses and jewelry were at the booth. Like half of the jewelry was a little normie tho

>>9791959
One moved out of state, another one is the person you're probably describing, but the rest of the people who ran it were at AMKE working in other ventures. But yes, the hotel wouldn't continue allowing Hoshi no Yume to sell their own food/drink. It was either sell the hotel's overpriced and unfitting food, or stop, and they chose to stop.

Hi see a lot of hate towards the new maid cafe. But most of you are so butt hurt about having to pay money you would realize that the maid cafe is way different in comparison to the previous cafe also most people hating on the cafe didn't even attend the cafe. La parfait is an experience as compared to a more lounge type setting. Also la parfait said they where a LLC business which means they pay their maids and butlers and they have to charge money because they have to make profit. I went to two of the sessions because I had so much fun the experience is magical and the maids and butlers are super professional. You can tell they put a ton of effort into putting on the cafe such as their dances where well performed everyone of their staff seemed to be on the same page. Also the new maid cafe is way more organized compared to the old cafe. I really hope they come back next year because they were so good. I also hope most of you are willing to look past the prices to see what they are like yourself.
>>
Meh, the cafe was pretty fucking good tbf, for the price they had i'd go again. went on Saturday which was their busiest day - issues with getting us in and out because they were so busy but that's my only complaint. Staff was chill as hell.
They did a fucking lot too. Drew art on your food, performed cute dances and had really fucking cute girls - food wasn't too bad either. They had a panel too and they were really chill. I'm into it personally but to each their own I guess. Hope they come back.
>>
>>9793649
>>9793655
Lmao you sound so buttmad I’m guessing you or someone you know is in the maid cafe.

To me it was not as organized as the original. The process of getting into the maid cafe was kind of a pain in the ass. As stated above, you had to get a ticket/time slot beforehand and the person working that aspect doesn’t even have a menu to offer people. That alone is fucking stupid okay?
Also only one maid could really dance well. I thought maybe they had a long day and they weren’t synced up because they were tired, but then I saw videos other people took and it seems like they’re never in unison.

I can't really comment on bleeding unfortunately. My wardrobe is almost exclusively light-colour solids and the only things I hand wash in bulk is blouses and they're literally all ivory. I haven't noticed any bleeding for the things I have washed though, if that helps at all.

I run a straightener through and then it's like... curling the ends under while simultaneously trying to pull them sideways by moving your straightener towards one side of your face. I'm Asian with a Japanese hairdresser who showed me how to do it though, so I don't know how it would go on fine textured hair.

>>
>>9794357
Are you actually curling your bangs inwards (towards your forehead) with the straighteners? It almost looks like you haven't.

Also maybe invest in a hair roller for your bangs, so that way it's wet set and so stays longer than if you use heat.
>>
Anons lend me your ears.

A couple of years ago I got my hair badly bleached at a salon and I'm still growing out the damage. I've had to cut it back into a pixie so many times I'm feeling pretty sunk cost fallacy about it. Is it worth it just to buzz it off and wear wigs? Have any anons done this? I just want long healthy hair lol.
