/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.

How do you guys go about this? Especially people who are already shy, what do you do to?
>>
Honestly, if you’re shy the easiest way is for you to just go in a decent cosplay or j-fash and people will come up to you instead. Just approach people wearing a cosplay you know something about and compliment them, talk about the show etc but recognise when people are putting out signs that they don’t want to talk to you. It’s usually obvious unless you’re completely socially inept, if this is you then you’ll need advice for social situations generally, and not off 4chan. Don’t approach girls dressed in j-fashion unless you’re also a girl, it’s too easy to be misread as a creep.

>complaining they can't find a guy to commit

Have you tried dating girls recently? Even the girls who say they want a boyfriend don't want a boyfriend, they want an accessory, a symbolic status boyfriend so they can say they have a boyfriend to their friends and get asspats on social media because "relationship goals" and shit that like has made them retarded.

I 100% believed this game was a thing even after a few minutes after I woke up because how the "game" was laid out made it kind of plausible in the lolita community, somehow

Fuck. I'm a guy and I know that feel. I'm not even sure why I know that feel but I do. Maybe just watching my own buddies suck at relationships and fuck things up with women with more sense than them.

And its a totally different feel from the soul shattering despair of putting on a completely fake face that you know isn't going to matter after a month of dating but if you don't do it it sets off "red flags" and you get ghosted because you didn't carry out the ritual deception properly.

At that price, you're probably better off making cat/star shaped acrylic charms or acrylic pins.

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.

Anyone else stoked?

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.

Doing both too much and not enough makes this hard to concrit. Sweet Lacy Basket girl is the best but no headwear, bad looking socks and overly casual shoes for a fancy dress. Snow boots needs to stop trying so hard, nothing is working. Far left needs better socks that match, nicer shoes, and a simpler hair accessory if she's not going to wear OTT. Classic girl just looks cheap and colorblocked

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.

I think not treating “lolita handmade” as its own seperate hobby is the big thing. The designs are different, but really you’re still sewing a dress, blouse, elastic pants/skirt, or whatever. Stick strictly to lolita sewing patterns/designs, but for techniques and how-tos, you can simply youtube/google regular sewing tutorials instead of searching for something specific to lolita.

Essentials, depends on where you’re starting. Someone who’s put together a couple of things can jump straight into Otome no Sewing and find it really easy. But if you’ve never touched a sewing machine, you should start with learning your machine, then sew up pillowcases/totebags, before attempting simple dresses. Focus on learning one new thing at a time so you don’t get too many difficult things all going wrong at once.

Reader’s Digest Complete Guide to Sewing probably covers every technique under the sun, so it’s very useful to have. It’s very dense though, lots of tiny text. I’d use it together with youtube to figure out the techniques you need.

Easiest fabric to start with is cotton. Stay away from cutesy prints, in fact I’d strictly stick to old-fashioned florals or solids when starting out.

What I wish I knew was what actually worked on my body. Most of my rework focuses on dresses that turn out exactly how I want but it still looks kinda awful on my body. I guess this is also advice that you should stop and review your work along the way, be willing to make changes if it doesn’t look quite right, plus learn to figure out whether it’s your sewing that’s bad or the design just doesn’t suit you.

Also be kind to yourself, if a project bogs you down and becomes a drag, it’s totally okay to scrap it, throw it out and go something else. Do not rush a project, start holiday projects way earlier than you need to. Cutting corners generally has bad results.

Assuming you have basic sewing knowledge, the easiest way to start sewing lolita is to stick to lolita patterns in the beginning, like Otome no Sewing or I’ve heard good things about the pattern company CUT//SEW although I’ve never tried them. Otherwise you risk getting overwhelmed with too many parts of the project, fabric selection and sewing skills are hard enough tasks to accomplish for a new sewer, you don’t want to add in trying to modify some random burda pattern into something passable.
Dont be afraid to practice on shitty ugly fabric, like thrift store or ikea bedsheets, it’s a good way to get those skills built up without worrying about the finished piece looking good or wasting your money and fabric on something you don’t like.
Once you’re ready to make your first dress, I’d pick a nice cotton sateen for your fabric, fabric.com has a nice selection in good colours. It’s cotton, so it’s easy to work with; but it has a softer drape than quilting cotton or broadcloth and is better suited for apparel.
Don’t be afraid to screw up and have fun!
