/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.

I'll sew my own dresses and, being mostly into classic, can probably find suitable shoes, bags and accessories in vintage shops. Hopefully.

anon pls now I'll have nightmares
>>
>>9605200
Are you only concerned about shoes? You can find lolita-appropriate shoes in normie stores too, they won't be TPS level of cute but they can work, especially for daily wear. It's easier if you wear gothic or classic but it's possible for sweet too; either learn to lighten up with how you coordinate and incorporate black or brown shoes into your coords, hope that you can find shoes in the pastel color that you need, or buy whatever cute pair of shoes that you can find and paint them.
>>
>>9605210
That's true. I do have normie shoes and all that, I just kind of wonder what stuff will look like in the future.

This fashion has lasted WAY longer than anyone thought it would anyway so maybe it'll be around forever 8D
>>
>>9605200
>>9605186

The fashion will outlive you, I think. Although it might be difficult to find certain styles of shoes when they go out of trend.

I got into lolita when ITS was the big thing, and both homemade and loliables were actively encouraged for those who couldn't get their hands on burando. The DIY component in lolita is still pretty strong, Someone was still asking if Eternitas and Melt had patterns and instructions the same way GLB had in them. The current generation just happens to have a lot of brands, whether it's main brand, indie or single artist, all making very cool things at affordable prices, aimed at lolitas, so it's easier and more rewarding to buy something interesting and cute while contributing to encouraging other people to make cute things for lolitas, than to DIY everything yourself. And with the current push towards customization and maker spaces popping up in many cities, if anything, another 40 years into the future we might actually be able to print our own RHS in our own homes.

As to your current shoe problem, though. I'd suggest you start with white shoes and a comfortable base that you like. A few coats of Angelus leather paint takes care of the colour. For decoration, spare leather, glue, earring backings for non-pierced ears and some creative hours and you can add decoration to it to make it suit your taste.

> I never got negative comments with a little more on my hips so fat shamming is a no go

She never got fat comments because her size a few months ago wasn't fat. I applaud the rest of her comment but that part just didn't make much sense. Fat shaming and thin shaming both exist in the community, of course she hasn't experienced the former when she's been slim or average ever since she blew up in cosplay.

Not that I'm surprised. She dropped what 20 pounds? 30 pounds? in under 2 months?

I'm giving her the benefit of the doubt on that because sometimes ribbons just come undone while you're wearing stuff and you only notice after all the photos have been taken.
The lace, though? That's pure laziness or cheapness and neither of those is acceptable.

>>
>>9604995
Same thing happened to me but it was my own fault. Did the cheap option because I'm an idiot, and the set I was supposed to get ended up being only the dress. Couldn't do anything and they refused to help which, again, was my fault to begin with. Hearing what happened to you, I wonder if it would have even mattered if I paid more for their better service plan if they still lose parts of sets and don't take responsibility. I almost wonder if sellers on fril also might know which users are SS and take advantage, since SS might not file disputes or whatever since they aren't allowed and therefore want to stay on the down low.

Try cosplaying Akemi Homura since that fits your information given.

Post a picture and blot your face if you're autistic, most people here do just don't give bitch excuses about it.

If you want to cosplay with your Girl then ask her not us, see if there are anything's she wants to do that has a gun toting character from the same series to match up with her.

Considering this con for my first in ATL... which hotels besides the main one are actually walkable? Looking at Google Maps, and it's hard to tell if you can actually cross roads/cut through parking lots/etc.
>>
>>9605039
that area is kind of treacherous. Some massive highways you gotta cross. But depending on what route you take or come from, there are pedestrian paths.

I'd lean on Google's walking directions.
>>
>>9605039
I know friends of a friend stayed at a Days Inn or something similar down the road and walked but you have to walk along the road and cross traffic at one point. Depending on the weather you'll be completed sweat soaked by then. Definitely see if the place has a shuttle.

So here I am sitting at work with my coffee, about two clicks away from D.C. thinking whether I should stop by and "visit" this evening. I don't even have a badge, and don't care to buy one. I've outright snuck into the formal ball before, the only event worth going too, closest to the reason why most people go in the first place: to grab a girl to back to their hotel room and get laid.

What used to be a fun convention among all my friends has now devolved into an empty circle-jerk of obsessed hobbyists, hot celebrity cos-players who nothing but photoshoot, and poor friendless autists whose highlight of their year is to spend a few expensive days watching anime in a panel with strangers they don't even know.

You go to the "Voice Actors After Dark Panel" maybe, to relive the childhood thrill of "staying up" with pillows and blankets - only to be affronted with the sight of aging PC feminists droning on and on about what annoys them, sitting next to what appears to be a 40 something otaku, laying on his stanky breath in your direction at 3:00 in the morning.

You step outside and look up at the late summer night sky and wonder, "what is my life?"

Then on Sunday, like the world doesn't even care, they pack up their, equipment, and money, and leave, turning the Walter E. Convention Center back into dreary center of business that it really is, as you return to your job next Monday morning.

But hey, there are some hot cos-players there right? Well you can't even sneak past the front door anymore. So yeah.

*sips covfefe* Have fun.
