How long does it take you to shave your legs?
Do you shave that often for cosplay or personal preference? Either way props to you, that shit takes forever.
Hope Canada post gets their shit together, that entire situation sounds awful.

I use shaving powder, takes around 20-30 mins after showering to destroy all hair on my lower body. For upper body I just use a buzzer.
>for cosplay or personal preference?
Both. Not a big fan of body hair (on myself) tbqhwy.
>that entire situation sounds awful.
No kidding. I have things still in-transit from a month ago. Honestly don't know what's gonna happen with them.

>Stop, wait a minute. (Ow!)

For real though, most weebs are degenerate scum and arent worth your time. This is why you people watch, its very easy to pick up on who wants to talk or who else is looking for someone to talk to. You find most of these people at other booths or panels, and usually just striking up conversation about the subject, or their cosplay, can instantly energize a conversation. Even with my size and outward appearance I have been able to make friends and conversation with people who's foreheads barely reach my ribcage. Theres an odd science to it.

I don't have a lot of money and all my other wigs are shitty Bodyline. I'm looking at getting a nice one. I wear sweet-classic (think allover lace or chiffon dresses from Baby and AATP) and gothic.

Would gyaru wigs be cute? I am hesitant to get a basic wig when I could just use my own hair and they look a little questionable. My skin tone is light olive (I am Hispanic but not dark skinned)
Does anyone know the name of this dress?

Convention is about a month away, but the time to plan is now. Also, the deadline to get tickets mailed is in like four days. The venue the afterparty was held at last year shut its doors, but of course, we will always have the Javitts.

I'm a complete outsider who has only attended AX for the AA stuff. But I'm curious, because you hear rumors and stereotypes. Most prominently:

>Cosplayers are slutty, generally. At least, the ones who do lots of cosplays for every major con every year are.
>There's tons of drugs in the scene. Especially at the raves.
>Lots of "room parties" that end up with underage chicks getting shitfaced drunk, and getting raped a lot too.
>Most of the girls at the raves hook up with random guys.
>Photographers are shady and creepy as fuck. Especially the notable west coast ones.
>Most cosplayers have BPD or some other sort of cluster B mental illness, and daddy issues are the norm rather than the exception.
>Lots of cosplayers end up doing porn, or at least camming/sex work.
>STDs are rampant in the scene as a result of some of this stuff.

I'm asking because as an outsider, the cosplay scene - I mean the incestuous side of it where everyone knows everyone else who regularly attends cons in their area - seems impenetrable to me. It's like a parallel society.

It not surprising that people like Tezuka would make waifus like pic related. He also made furry waifus, but you get the point. I would love to hear about how colored eyes are totally a standard of beauty in japan when their women genetically can not achieve it, however. To deny there is western influence in anime, especially the waifus, is just being ignorant of its history.
this is true but not for that bullshit progressive reason. its because westerners women arent cute enough both internally and externally to do it properly, westerners can do slutty outgoing adult characters well enough but they cant do cute

>Making fun of tumblr witches

I'll to this day never understand how shittily compressed seconds of random TV shows and movies with captions became a staple of Tumblr. It's shitty to look at, almost never properly coveys what the poster means, and seems like it takes more work to make than just making a regular fucking reaction image with a still. Like what the fuck does this animation convey to me?

Lmao, just go to San Diego, you'll get the same experience just with less Stevens.
I appreciate the effort senpai,but I would rather adopt another MyRoid, I wouldn't feel comfortable having a negative stereotype of my own country.

Also, San-Hei's damage was cute because it was made by mistake, a MyRoid that was damaged against its will doesn't appeal to me.

Hey, rude.

I mean I've been to the border at San Diego. If you meant San Diego itself, it's nice. Vagabonds are an issue in any large city.

Ah yeah, I see. I was trolling you a bit with her story, but can be an example of turning what you like into an OC. If you do like those drinks then you could keep her design theme and ditch the troll profile. Or use other characters, food, folklore, etc that you love for a base. You kinda already do that, the difference is yours are still pretty much the characters they're meant to be.

I love making random girls so you can add a couple more if you want.

The back hair is a combo of 2 hairs, therefore impossible in-game, but I'm sure there's better wigs or hair in MCC by now.

What's you're budget. Sounds like you could benefit from a primer that has skincare ingredients. Tatcha silk canvass states that it's supposed to be a barrier between your skin and the environment. I would try that + IT Cosmetics makes a CC creme with SPF 50

I don't know if this is the best place to ask, but maybe girl conglomerate board can help? I need styling advice, bonus if in looks cute. Please and thank you ~
What type of lip color, (ie lipstain, lipstick, matte color, etc,) looks best with each major substype?
I think:
Gothic: matte stain
Classic: traditional lipstick
Sweet: lip gloss
I'm generalizing and people can make good arguments any other way, but I think

Gothic: black to cherry, purple, and blue red
Classic: warm red to coral tones, neutral
Sweet: all sorts of pink and pastel colors, with a good bit of sparkle if they want to
Gothic: dark/striking lip colours, definitely able to get away with more dark unnatural colours. Oftentimes nudes to grey if going for dead doll look.
Classic: definitely more natural "my lips but better" shades, that spectrum between mauves to corals and some reds
Sweet: gloss and glitter, mostly light pinks, but not really unnatural pastel unless it's one of those holographic unicorn sparkly OTT things

>doesn't even mention length of hair or what they've tried for skin etc.
What styling advice do you even want?

They are like say a garage idol group, to use an americanism. They have fun, tour, perform, but they aren't in it for say GLORY OR POWER
She needs to learn that shit ain't cute. Publically posting about mental breakdowns isn't what someone with mental breakdowns does.
No, don’t quit!! I’m jaded by being in theater.
I just saw their performance at AnimeNYC and I think it turned out well. Definitely better than any of the other groups
I actually loved it!! Saw the stream, haha. Their best song yet, for sure. If they went with a more rock direction in general, it would be super cool.

How has Cosplay influenced your self image? for better or for worse?
35 replies and 3 images omitted. Click here to view.
I know that a ton of cosplayers deal with hating their face. I think that a lot of it comes down to comparing yourself towards the character/or people who shop their pics to look like that character. you can get a similar body to a lot of anime/cartoon characters but getting a similar face to one is super tricky. I would say that trying to emulate your character really well is more than an impossible standard, especially without shop, and being critical is also so so hard when you're trying to look like a fictional character when you're not, I can't tell you how frustrated I've gotten because I couldn't make a garment look the way it was supposed to even though I knew that it wouldn't work 100% right in real life.

It actually got me into skincare too! I cringe when I think about the days where I would wash my face with a bar of soap now, and it definitely feels great knowing that you can put your time to good use and have something that you're proud of.

I definitely try to look at cosplay as a fun hobby too, I'm not a professional by any means and just make a handful of costumes each year but I'm always hyper-critical of everything I make and I'm trying to remind myself that it's not a competition. and even though I'm really shy and don't talk to that many people, the best part about cosplay is going to cons for me too. It makes me so happy whenever someone likes my cosplay enough to take a picture of it, or when someone gets excited because I'm cosplaying a character that they really like! This is a really good reminder that cosplay should be something you LIKE doing, instead of a stressful one.
I used to feel confident starting out, being overwhelmed by everything at conventions. Nowadays I tend to compare myself too much to others , I'm build like momokun and have been doing mostly simple costumes. I'm losing weight right now and I've nearly gotten rid of my acne with accutane, but I still don't like my nose jawline, flat but wide ass. I've always had self esteem issues and the only way people notice me is by dressing scantily / pretending to be confident.
Why not make or buy a breast plate? I have a flat chest but use one for big titty characters. It's a great way to get unrealistic cartoon proportions without having to have permanent surgery. People know they're fake because I'm 5'7 95lb but my breast plate has E cups, when it's that obvious nobody cares since it's part of the character.
I used to think I was super ugly, and then started wearing makeup in my late teens, then felt I was... less ugly. Then I got into cosplay and learned a ton more about and started thinking I looked cute with falsies and a full face of makeup etc. Now it's a few years later and I'm used to how I look with all that stuff and I'm back to feeling like I'm super ugly. I don't even care that much about being unattractive, I just wish I didn't always feel like people are lying when they tell me I look cute in my cosplays D:
I feel about the same in and out of cosplay; not ugly but not drop-dead gorgeous.

I do feel better about the way I look now after i've put on a little weight. Used to be 5'4 and 110 at most and now I'm in the 125-130ish. I feel a little chubs now but I don't hate what I see in other people's photos of me.

Cosplay makes me feel slightly more nitpicky about my appearance and that's not necessarily bad. But I guess it does make me feel kinda eh when i feel like i want more attention for certain cosplays that i don't get if i'm not showing skin or being a sexy cosplay. It's all perspective though. Other people's opinions shouldn't matter.

it's black and white anon, how do not not understand how to coord such a simple piece?
Any thoughts on how to coord this bonnet or what to use it with? I kind of thought either magical etoile in red, holy night story in white, or possibly meta’s red firework print (forget the name)
I honestly the only print that could work with this is holy night story, but red instead of white. The white would look super unbalanced imo.
Ap's lovely bunny jsk in red?
That could work but I’ve had such a hard time finding it :( everyone only sells it in black
