/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.

Katsu ran the 17th to the 20th and CPAC ran the 22nd to the 25th. At 3PM on Sunday, the Gaylord kicked everyone out of the gazebo level. At the time, people said it was for a wedding, but now it seems possible that it was for CPAC prep.

I don't know about you gulls but I'm sick of the recent influx of people attention whoring with non-lolita/ouji coordinates. This shit needs to stop.

Anon, those tights aren't zebra printed, they're women with striped shirts on running up her leg. Her bag also isn't out of place since it's just a white bag from meta. I do agree a little bit of jewelry on the hands would help her though.

Well, it's also just that there are only so many ways you can swing a sword. Escrima and arnis in particular are based on Iberian vulgar fencing (esgrima), which is very similar to other cut-and-thrust fencing around Europe.

Also yeah just fight how you want. We're nerds in a field playing with sword-shaped foam slabs.

Doesn't seem to be, my hands never come away from it oily just grey. I rubbed it down for an hour straight and that didn't make a dent in the grey rub off.

>>9369412
I have no idea what is going on with your maille. Maybe its some after treatment coating or something.

Anyway, try rubbing it with lemon juice (pressed). Its good for aluminium if it gets in to a chemical reaction. Or wait for someone more knowledgable with aluminium chain mail.

Finally got the courage to brave going to a con, so I finally purchased my the wig I needed this morning.

My absolute best friend notified me an online store had my dream dress in my size, and I swiped that up. My wallet is suffering because of it and I can only imagine what customs will charge.

Last some pins that finally got restocked, got all 3.
>>
>>9369430
Cute wig and pins. Are they from any series or just really cute?
>>
>>9369642
Not OP, but the artist is 0313 on pixiv. Most of their stuff is either original or fairytale based and yeah, incredibly cute and well done.
>>
>>9369642

OP here! They are both original, like >>9369650 said the artist makes super cute original stuff and sometimes fantasy based on a story. Right now they did an Alice in wonderland themed phone case.

Originally I was going to use the wig and style it to a character/or use moonspeak to ask for a custom wig but honestly I might go as the "generic neko" to be safe.

Yup. Also btw mercy is not the easiest and neither is dva or soldier.btw a good Lucio like dspstanky is not an easy fucking feat.

Aaaaalways the minion.

I'm depressed as hell, but CGL keeps me living. I dream about pastels and sweet, delicate fashion and do my best, but lately I've been slipping. Life seems dreary.

I was wondering, maybe, if we could have a thread where we discuss the little cgl / jfash related things we do day to day that make it better.

For example, sometimes I make floordinates (except on my bed, I guess) of things I plan on wearing, and that makes my mornings easier since I don't have to stress much. Going out for a latte wearing subtler j-fash always makes me feel pretty and warm without feeling too anxious. Checking for new releases feels great too, and things. What about you?

I've been considering starting a lifestyle blog because I do a lot of cutesy crafts and wear lolita regularly, but I'm hesitant because I already have some trouble clicking with the rest of my comm and they're very much of the opinion that it's just clothes and anyone who looks for any kind of subculture (besides talking shit on here and btb) is a pretentious faker. I don't want to single myself out too much.
Maybe I can do it anonymously? Is that a thing, anonymous blogs?
>>
>>9369622
Not sure about anonymous blogs but you can use a fake name (just be careful of "Japanese" names, they can be a bit off-putting) and you don't have to post your face. Though as an added note I gotta say that it sounds like your comm has shit attitudes and I'm sorry for you.
Anyway, I basically say this to any anon who brings up the idea to start a lifestyle blog: If you write well and can update at a reasonable frequency, you should do it. You might have to post it on tumblr at first or even self post here to get the word out but if the amount of nostalgic gulls commenting on this topic is any indication, you could get a decent following.
>>
>>9369622
You could use a nom de plume and blur your face, but don't make it some big secret. Avoid the term lifestyle lolita and don't sound like you think the things you do are part of being a lolita. Don't make it a tumblr blog, their format sucks and almost everyone just uses it to reblog pretty pictures. Do post your pictures and coords on tumblr and instagram, with a link to your latest blog post if it's relevant to the picture.

It's carnival and I want to wear a costume with a turban. But I don't want to pass as a racist by saying I'm wearing a whole culture as a costume (carnival is full of SJW and they out number me)

So I need some specific characters who wear turban to cosplay as, ive me ideas, also, make it with a beard.

I'm in an area near a few different comms, but all three of them are pretty frustrating. Comm 1 is very disjointed and doesn't have creative or frequent meets. Nobody seems to like each other and everyone's a bit judgemental. Comm 2 meets very frequently, but everyone there is ita af. Comm 3 is slightly further away and has really excellently planned meets, but everyone there is elitist and it's just too big for it's own good. For the love of God, please let me have one good group of people who I can peacefully enjoy this fashion with.
