/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.

To someone unfamiliar with the Touhou games, how likely would it be for a Byakuren cosplay to be seen as a really ita coord? Her outfit sort of looks like Milanoo shit and I'm worried about cosplaying her for fear of being mistaken as an ita.

coincidentally i've known my 'bitch friend' for like 10 years or something like that too and shes living with her bf right now. i can feel our friendship crumbling away but she doesnt seem to notice or care.

and it sucks because she was the only person who hanged out with me at cons and now i have no one to share my interests with except 4chan unless i miraculously become outgoing enough to meet ppl who also share my interests in my local area, of course without them being complete cringe-worthy weaboos
yum mango. I have an apple, Fruit is def better than chocolate.
Mango is my favourite fruit hands down - it didn't stand a chance against me. I massacred that thing. Apples are pretty gr9 too, but all the ones I have downstairs are bruised and gross so I'm leaving them for everyone else to eat.

Anon, I have been a japanophile for... 8 years now? And it's a great thing really, but living in Japan and teaching English is not a very good plan, I'm afraid. I know everyone in America who is or has been a weeaboo at some point wants to do that, but the craic from a lot of people who have already been there is that it pays very little, the people aren't that polite to you, and Japan as a country is extremely exhausting. I visited Japan a lot and have friends there myself, but living there? Definitely not worth it.

Just stop posting your piece of shit. Are you seriously one of those guys who doesn't get the signs when a woman is uncomfortable and doesn't want to talk to you?

No, I'm of those guys who finds it incredibly funny to wind up mad jelly bitches on the internet by flirting in a deliberately hyperbolic and ineffective way with a hot piece of ass who, in all likelihood, lives in another country, and whom I have absolutely no desire to actually interact with in any form.
The punchline is your reactions, not hers.

I had a crush on avril when I was a teenager. I wish I had a gf like her.
I don't know, but I sent her a link to an article about Kyary Pamyu Pamyu wanting to spread kawaii around the world.

I'm waiting to hear her throw out buzzwords like "internalized racism" or something.
I was wondering where i heard the song beforw.
Out of curiosity, since I guess I've been living under a rock, which black artists have "exploit(ed) Japanese culture for profit"? I'm curious to see this.

>"japanese" version
>still english for all the major chorus parts
What's the matter Avril? Not a good enough copycat to imitate the japanese for those parts?

What drives me crazy about celebrities like her is it's not like she doesn't have the time or the money to comfortably learn more about a second language or another culture. She's just a faceless, fame hungry cunt.

Amazing! Your coords are really cute.

You look gorgeous! You look really lovely in your kimono too.
Don't blame me, I'm from /n/ I don't think your board has ever been mentioned there. Unless you had a thread about trains or bikes.
Dayum girl you got that body like an elin.

Annoying Merrymaking in the Ghost Town anon again!(not navy sock-chan)Managed to snag the red x orange diamond OTKS, so I was wondering if anyone had the headbow in red they were looking to sell? If not, I'd be totally fine with just a plain black AatP headbow of any sort.

Also WTB a long sleeved black blouse with princess sleeves. Even after scouring Taobao, it's bizarrely fucking hard to find a black blouse with long sleeves that arent super tight around the wrists. Is it just not a popular style or something?
would be interested in the (dark blue) special set of fancy paper dolls, anon? email in field for proof pictures

Race-playing and Cross-playing general

Yup. I'm black so I'm going as Afro Samurai to Akaicon. Partially because lelaccuracy, and because I love the character.

>On another similar note
People seem to take offense to someone cosplaying a character of different racial backgrounds. Even more so the people cross-playing. This is weird to me. Is it so bad of a black guy wants to go as Sword of the Stranger or Spike? Why must we have a costume that's either of a black guy, or of a masked/painted character?

Nobody cares, the fact is you do look like a 50 year old in that picture - why is irrelevant.

I appreciate you being the only person to give me any real points to work on. And I will use them going forward. Thank you very much, anon.

God this. I actually felt awkward when my supervisor at work asked me about what characters he could cosplay. He's bald, has a thick beard, eyes that slightly bug out, obese, and I can't find a single attractive feature on him. His skin is also mulatto child brown, but not that pretty creamy color. It's more like coffee that's been sitting out too long. He's my supervisor so I had to be careful what I said, and he gets butthurt over the tiniest things.

Just went with "O-oh. W-w-w-ell maybe Eggman from Sonic? I, uh, don't know that many people your... size."

>Proceeds to complain about being a villain.
Wow, he sounds hideous. Yeah, there really is not much hope for people who look like that. He could be a Klingon from Star trek if he got in shape, maybe?
This, forever. If you're black then just accept it, don't try to paint yourself white.

Can we get a distasteful cosplay thread? The quality, craftsmanship and such doesn't have to be bad in itself, this being an example as its well made but holy shit it looks like the biggest piece of shit ever.

her wig looks so shitty here
she's just a whore, but whatever at least she's not a fatass in the same costume. She sort of tries too... I guess. Idk.
I enjoy this thread in the most masochistic way possible.
why would any of these persons think this was cool?
Why would you spend even a single cent on these monstrosities?
These are the ugg-boot wearing Nickelback lovin' Nicht Cages of cosplaying
I guess, but even then it'd be better to go without a sword at all because it's still what got her hands all froze up

Unless these people only watched the part where Ice Queen disguised as Prince Gumball is singing to Fionna because it's ~*~*~*~so kawaiiiii otp<33333~*~*~*~

Let's have a new artist alley general! Looked on the catalog and couldn't find any.

Post table setups, product ideas, tutorials and everything artist alley related.

The basic link:

sorry. specifically, I don't draw a lot of fanart. But when I do, its of stuff like touhou and yume nikki. About 1/2 of the art i draw is in an anime style. The rest is more of my own style and i don't expect it to really sell at cons.
I think if you're super good at what you do, your original art will still gain recognition. But I think that you definitely have to try to build your online presence outside of your personal site. Reach out to communities like anon said. Deviantart can be useful for advertising yourself, especially since you can find specific groups that cater to original art or whatever it is that you do. Selling at AA requires more than just going to the con and setting up shop. You have to market yourself prior to the con, during the con, and after the con. That is, if you plan on selling at AA regularly. As for fan art, you don't HAVE to, but it will definitely help you gain traction. Cater to fans, build your reputation enough that people recognize you and your style, then let your original stuff seep in more and more.
I only buy non-character art if theres literally nothing better to buy. The only stuff I bought at the last con was all really good fanart.

If you want to make money, do fanart. If you dont care, dont.
Are you willing to link your art?
I profit more from buttons I think. I rarely sell out of prints at a con.
If my layouts were better I'm sure I could sell more.
Where do you make those? I found custom printing on Aliexpress but I'm not sure if they are reliable...

Post pics and talk about costumes

Why are you an unnecessary bitch? Not everyone knows how corsets are supposed to look. ffs
Nice wig, holy hell though she has a linebacker neck. And is wearing enough makeup for me to reconsider the choice of "she" this is a confirmed female?
Of course it is. Look at the way the busk is going. That is so wrong.
Also it is way more pointed on the top than the bottom.
considering how often attention-seeking bimbos who slut up character designs wear corsets upside down (or backwards, or both), it's an entirely valid question.
Good lord he/she looks like it is being ass raped as the picture is taken.

Are cosplay idea help threads allowed?

My friends and I are a group of six and I'm having trouble thinking of a good six person ideas. I'm basically looking for any group costume suggestions, any help is appreciated.

Yo, OP, I got you.

Just cosplay from Mario. Ginjinkas are easy to do from that series. And there's a wide range of characters.
I'm liking that, I'll have to play the game though. I'll definitely keep that one in mind though.
just cosplay from a series you know. Nothing worse than a person who cosplays from something they dont know the source material from. And six people is a lot for a group, so you have to all know what the hell is going on.
I'm just keeping in mind that it's a possibility. One of the other five might have played it and know a lot about it or something.

god damn it just has to be all about you huh? fuck you are dense
cgl proving once again how retarded and autistic they are for falling for the most obvious b8 just so they can yell at a random person on the internet so they can feel better about themselves.
I did say I fell for it, it's true. I am not a clever man. The email should have tipped me off more before the other anon pointed it out.
If it makes you feel any better I'm not /cgl/, I just got stuck on here after I came to see a thread about avril lavigne.
Cynthia has nuts long hair. Wig it next time. Also might want to consider calming down on the eyeshadow, particularly on the upper eyelid and maybe use some eyeshadow to lighten your eyebrows. Not bad for a first try though. My first try was a disaster

So I guess this thing blew up over night as I kept seeing it posted by friends.

What's everyone's take on it? Reading the posts on the SJ Facebook are entertaining.

it was started in >>7514110
SJ asked to use the video and the guy who made it was like let me put a watermark on it
sj never replied and started using the video without him knowing like at cons to advertise and stuff. He was trying to contact them for months and never got a response until he made the video
The apology was probably the most shity half assed apology ever
at this point mr.caldfag seems to be just enjoying the attention and is well aware of the thread here.

So mr caldfag shave that pedo stache off your seedy face, get off your fucking texas high horse and get over your shat video and shatty hypocritical opinions
he's just being a dick now. Since he "released" his video he has been encouraging people spam it all over the place. He has posted about it 10 times all over his Facebook. He definately loves the attention. This whole issue has been about him not getting enough attention.
