[Catalog] [Archive]

/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.

No, not even breaking the rules, only if crime is taking place or about to happen.

Breaking hotelrules such as "crashing" with more people then allowed is not a crime as such that it warrant unauthorized entry. That's the whole point, hanging out a do not disturb sign means you give no permission to enter, no authorization.

And this will hold in a Dutch court, it has been done several times before, and judges ruled in favour of the customer and the not the hotel.

I think the blouse kinda ruins the neckline in all honesty. I would be tempted to rock it anyway, lewd cleavage an' all (since it's a mature look anyway) or just find a square neck spaghetti strap vest with really nice lace that sits just above the dress neckline.

Another option could be a simple slim fitting high neck, long sleeve blouse if the dress arms aren't too tight, I think that might actually look better than the sleeveless kind - hell if it's good enough for Mana...

usually because of euro/dollar rates, although most things are still ridiculously expensive. Someone once sold a really unpopular meta skirt that could match pretty much nothing in existence for over 100 € (which I think is around $120) plus shipping

I can't find one, so why not.
Post reviews, your favorite stores, whatever.

I'm trying to find a pair of gold/yellow-y lenses that show up nicely on dark eyes. I'm trying to avoid those gross neon looking ones and need some in prescription since I'm blind as shit.

Is there a database somewhere for which lenses will work for cosplaying which character?
>>
>>9160948
Why would you even need that? It's not hard to go "this character has purple eyes so I need purple lenses" and go from there.
Unless you need specialty lenses or some kind of really weird pattern.
>>
>>9160948
If you show us a photo of the character and tell us any special needs your eyes have (astigmatism, prescription, etc) we probably can point you in the right direction
>>
>>9160948
No, because the fit of a lens to your eyes is more important than how much it suits a character, and different lenses show up differently on different coloured eyes. There are enough choices of lenses out there that you can generally find one to suit you and change your eye colour for a character
>>
What are some of your favorite 1-day circle lenses that look good on dark brown eyes? I'm thinking about getting some for some casual fashion, not cosplay photoshoots.

Can anyone think of a cute casual way to do sailor moon costumes for halloween without going full cosplay mode?

Order one of the really cheap ebay costumes. Just search sailor _______ cosplay and set it to lowest price you'll find them easy. They'll probably be ill-proportioned and made with shiny cheap satin but with some ironing and okay wigs normies will think you're totally legit.
