/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.

Ask all your lolita and other jfash questions here. For any cosplay questions, your best bet is the cosplay help thread.

My natural hair is frizzy and unpleasant, I can curl it but it will quickly tangle no matter what conditioner and leave in. I can do braided styles but that gets old and isn't always fancy enough for the sweet-classic dresses I have unless I put a lot of work into it. I love wigs because they have that thin, slippery texture the exact opposite of my hair
How do you make a shapeless dress like pic related look good?
Have negative tiddy. Keep the petticoat reasonably small. Pick a top that flatters your décolletage (cover your shoulders and chest with something that works for your body). Have below-zero tiddy.
is youvimi just a taobao/alliexpress reseller? If so: I'm trying to figure out who supplies their wigs?
Any tips on where to buy J-fash in Seoul? Either japanese brands or Korean brands with the same style.

Specifically looking for lolita, Axes femme, Liz Lisa styles.

>is there any Anime cons worth travelling to the US for?

No. They all collectively went to shit post 2007.

The only US cons "worth" travelling to the US for are SDCC and NYCC, even if you don't like comics that much. Anime cons are better in your own local community probably.

AX is better run nowadays, but pretty soulless. I don't recommend it to people anymore. I pretty much prefer the "didn't know what the fuck they were doing" days, as they at least had more heart for what they were doing.
She had some kind of medical issue, I didn't ask. It didn't help that she was talking meds for it and washing it down with tequila. When she was awake she just complained about her parents or banged 2nd amendment bro.
And thanks for the encouragement!

Would anyone have any inspiration for a 1920s/30s style wardrobe with a sort of 30s girl detective/journalist look? I'm really warming to greens, blues, jewel tones etc with a feminine but practical look!
How is this jfashion related?
I'm assuming they mean classic lolita with 20s/30s-inspired details.
Yes, sorry, I completely dropped that part! Classic Lolita!

Why is every "lolita ambassador" like this?
Nitpick honestly. Wish her fringe was pastel rainbow instead of bright rainbow to match the cardigan, and some blue or green tights instead of white would really tie it together.
nitpick with a nasty ass cardigan that doesn't match a lolita aesthetic at all? okay.

Is anyone planning on going?
I might go on Saturday. I’m trying to decide if I want to participate in the “cosplay showcase” event or not. I have no idea what it is, from the description on the website.
i went last year and was completely underwhelmed. it was small and crowded and none of the panels/guests seemed appealing to me personally.
NC comic con seems to have been gutted by supercon. IT was growing pretty well up until last year when Supercon came on the scene and then they also tried to keep people from cosplaying in the main hall and made up a bunch of other stupid rules.

I doubt it will even exist in a few years. I know a few people who popped in but it looked dead on arrival.

The "All these 50% off sales!" Edition

Bodyline is having its third 50% off sale in the last few months with additional free P-mail and fixed fee EMS.

This is super helpful anon, thank you! I'll be grabbing it the next time it goes 50% off lol
First time ordering boots from bodyline and after wearing them for a day they started to flake. I'm so mad, they're beautiful but does this happen to all violin boots?
Oof sorry this happened to you. You might need to contact Bodyline about a refund or a replacement pair, especially if you can provide timestamp photos of when your order arrived versus when the damage happened. If it's close enough after when you ordered they can't claim you just have an old pair you ordered X months ago and wore too roughly.

good luck with that, their customer 'service' is known to be a joke.

>girl, you don't need this much filter or shoop. I'm sure you look fine without it.
this is such a weird common misconception on cgl. Some people just really like photo editing. I seriously don't think photo editing has anything to do with self esteem in regards to physical appearance.
Those are some extremely unfortunate proportions. Frump works when you don’t look like a fridge.
Honestly it isn’t about looking “normie”, this girl just looks like a basic bitch. Let’s go down the list, shall we
> Uneven visible roots
> Fried, thinning bleach blonde hair
> Uneccesary full-coverage foundation at least 10% more yellow-toned than her actual skin tone
> “I just stamped these brows on”-tier clown makeup
> Streaky contouring
> d u c k f a c e
The coordinate itself looks fine, she just looks more at home with ugg boots, yoga pants, and a Starbucks pumpkin spice latte. It’s possible to look both like a normal human being and a lolita. Looking like you belong in 2012 isn’t it.
Frump usually works in old school, newfag
That buzzword doesn't even make sense in this context. If you're built like a linebacker, frump doesn't work on you, oldschool or not.
anon she looks bad

Would you find it weird to talk to someone after youre asked for a photo and taken said photo?

Not really, it's nice to get to know other fans
no, those are my favorite kind of interactions desu, its also a good excuse to swap social media

She complains about not being invited to meet ups yet rarely hosts anything herself? The last event in that group is from a year ago, and I don't believe any meet ups have been hosted by her in years either.

NYC is super cliquey, and you do kinda have to work hard to find or create your own, but it is possible just by hosting your own meets often, and meeting new people, and of course actually being nice in person.

I'm glad the main comm actually has a bunch of public events finally. It's refreshing to see people actually trying to branch out instead of staying in their little groups.

Also im not exactly sure what this girl did except stirring up drama in the LJ days. Her name was simply26.
Oh shit you’re right. I’m surprised she’s even still trying to interact with the comm
What group/page did she post this in?
Doesn't every comm have one of these?
THIS like no one running the comm is mature just really petty and self involved....

i did my own kiss cut stickers for a while.. and i've done buttons myself before too and imo.. the time and labor spent making that shit at home is a huge fucking waste. I'll outsource any day now because i can not waste my waking hours baby sitting a cutter or punching away.
Something else you have to think about is that the quality of the prints will go down over time unless you keep the printer very clean.
I have a cheap Canon PIXMA and it printed REALLY good at first, but almost 3 years later, the print quality is really bad and its impossible to get inside there and actually clean it manually.
There is no real cost savings and the hassle it takes isn't worth it. If you are super small scale or just want to run a test batch to see how well a design sells, its fine, but not worth it in the long run.

Yeah! Ofc I find tracing/art theft annoying. In this case I guess Im extra annoyed because they ~pastel-fy~ the images to fit their brand, and use tactics like switching a few things around/flipping images so its less noticeable its a trace.

These are the other ones where I recognize the source right away. Although Im sure they trace other stuff too. I think the sleepy kirby from the first image is referenced/loosely traced from the same set as the Dedede (Kirby Twinkle Dolly)
why on earth do they need to trace pre-existing kirby images when kirby is literally one of the easiest things to draw

Who else here have to deal with accusations of fetishes in order to just enjoy Lolita? I know theres some fellow true bloods out there who just follow the board for intricate cosplays and beautiful coords regardless of the haughty thot that may be wearing it.

men are obsessed with sex. They also think that women only dress for their pleasure, so that must mean that women wear lolita for their pleasure. therefore it must be a weird sex thing for them.
obviously not all men, but most men think this way.
I do realize that random people's opinions shouldn't have power over anyone, but I completely understand why someone would be bothered by strangers thinking that their fashion choice is a fetish, and be deterred from getting into lolita because of it. I can deal with people thinking my clothes are weird, but for me it would be too humiliating for people to think that:
1. My clothes are part of some kind of ageplay kink
2. I'm debased enough to act out said kink in public
Sweet isn't really my style to begin with, but even if it were, I'd be afraid to wear it in public because of the associations with ddlg or "little girl clothes".
I'd love to know what you define "self respect" as. So many people attempt to throw this phrase around without an actual meaning behind it. Sleeping with a high number of people doesn't mean you don't respect yourself.
>Sleeping with a high number of people doesn't mean you don't respect yourself.
Self-respect means valuing yourself and not letting other people take advantage of you. "Sleeping with a high number of people" implies that you are letting people who you barely know (met at a party, bar, or tinder), and have no significant connection with, use you to fulfill their desires. For the most part these people don't care about you, won't remember anything about you besides the shape of your body, and see you as just another thing to provide them with momentary pleasure. If you respected yourself you would only give your body to someone deserving: a person who you've known long enough to develop mutual care and trust for. You can't value yourself very highly if you give people you don't know or trust intimate access to your body. It's inherently degrading.

Remember the quilt-kei dress? It seems to be finished and It's not as bad as I thought it would be
Dang, that's not bad at all. I don't love it but it looks better than anyone could have expected I think.
I still don't know why she cut the dress up, I hope it was damaged but it doesn't appear to be on Tumblr. This poor dress is cursed.
Do you not understand that cheap has nothing to do with price? I am not that anon and I don't think HD is cheap looking but I can see why they think that. Compare it to other Meta dresses with tons of lace, pintucked, nice removable pieces so you customize the look.

Simple dresses can still look expensive when there's lots of nice material and the cut is perfect. This isn't one of those
Looked good on Instagram but the lack of replies here has me wondering
