• 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.

Itabag FAQ and Beginners Guide v. 2.1

It's actually pretty funny and based on how the artist kept seeing those restaurants so close together. Apparently it's a theme because a lot of commentators took pics of their own malls doing the same thing.

My homeland never disappoints. Now I need to make my ancestors proud by making a McBee itabag.
Luxas Shop OP here. I haven't had much communication with them since their English rep came back, but I did get to confirm my list. Most notably I had a question about payment, and they replied to that email very quickly (within ten-ish minutes). After I made payment, they've slowly but steadily purchased nearly all the items on my list, save the listings with non-responsive sellers. So it's gone pretty smoothly for me, since last week's hiccup. I'm sorry you're still having trouble, anon!
I also put in a request with Luxas (otamart, I presume as well?). Just waiting so so so slowly for everything to be purchased. I hope I can get most of everything but they've been fairly quick about updating my order form.

For those of you who have experience from ordering from otamart, when should you give up on nonresponsive sellers? I was thinking about 1 to 1 1/2 weeks. Sadly only one of my items have been successfully purchased.
I'm the original OP from about 2 days ago and holy shit this exploded. I was basically complaining about the really terrible fake bags that look like ass as a pet peeve, not ALL KNOCK OFFS ARE EVIL (I already mentioned I own bootlegs myself). No idea who the guy arguing this to death is but this turned into a train wreck I'm getting secondhand embarrassment reading it.

I don't know about PCC specifically, but huge events like this in the South tend to have way less security measures than the North and West Coast. Kind of ironic since they also have way less gun regulation.

>Lolita obviously falls under cosplay
guess they rely on the "good guy with a gun" method of security
This is why you never ignore stalkers and hope they go away. Document every single creepy thing they do and be ready to act the moment they make a threat of violence. The person who pointed the cops to him should get a medal, and so should the girl for reaching out to someone. This thread should be stickied. Secondly, the problem was clearly him being fucked in the head and not simply the guns he was carrying.

>your own biases aren't objective fact
Really, I'd say you're guilty of believing exactly that. These are supermodels that were beauty icons in their time, they're not my own biases. Even if you personally find them "disgusting," that's your personal biases that you're trying to treat as objective fact. It's not relevant in a discussion on what's normal to consider things disgusting. The fact is these women are considered attractive, and fat people disgusting. There might be people who disagree and actually find fat attractive and thin disgusting, but they're anomalies, and it's likely just fetishistic in nature - the same definitely cannot be said for thin.

This discussion is stupid. It's just a bunch of rationalization trying to justify fat gluttons or equate them with excessive thinness. They will never be the same. One is obsessive work on the aesthetics of one's own body (yes, sometimes to the point of debilitation), the other is total disregard for one's body in the name of destructive self indulgence. Fat will always be ignoble, it will always evoke an impulsive reaction of disgust, and it has no place in any fashion.
Average is so much cuter than low body weights though.
>lolitas who comment in cosplay posts.

Please keep this on topic about the event and the goings-on about it.
No real names and blurr out all facebook names to avoid getting this banned.
We need civility to a certain degree.

Some girls have started to file Paypal claims, if you are willing, it's highly suggested you do so as well

Just to recap what happened:
>Mini convention in Florida
>$80-$150 ticket prize

>"catered food" includes plate of starbursts, devil dogs, and packaged children's snacks.

Plus she said that "when ticket sales closed" maybe 2 weeks prior, the final count was 65. She said there would be absolutely no tickets sold after that date. How did she allow 20 more people to buy tickets after that? She seemed so surprised about it too like she wasn't expecting it. Did she not check her website to verify? Or maybe she said she would close ticket sales after a certain date, but forgot to actually do it or decided to keep them available in order to make more money.
There were supposedly 8 volunteers. Only one volunteer was on table duty. Where were the other 7? Ridiculous.
Literally my face as that poor guy had to go back and forth between the tables and back with just two plates. Meanwhile, the other volunteers were nowhere to be found
They should've at least provided him with a serving tray. I've seen cheap plastic ones for $1 at Dollar Tree. Then he could've carried maybe 5 plates at once.
Like $80-$350 went where? Poor guy didn't even have a damn tray to use. Everyone felt so sorry for him.

My boyfriend managed to not only mess up the taxes we will be charged, but also accounted for 4 people staying, not 3, and misadded the incidentals and fees. Now he is being a huge baby and acting like I took a hold of his balls and twisted, being all wounded and such.

The Westin aka Sainte Claire hotel's elevators are down. Goodluck taking the stairs six floors up. Was going up to my newly checked in room (luckily 2nd floor) and the elevator is stuck.

At this point I think most of the no gf posts are trolling. /r9k/ has been shitting on various Lolita and cosplay threads for a while.
I think you underestimate how many lonely people browse this board and see AN as their chance to meet a girl who likes anime.

What cool stuff have you built for a larp?

Need some suggestions:
What weapon should I add to my go-to kit so I can deal with heavily-armoured opponents? My primary weapon is a Rapier so I'd rather something I can use in the off-hand and won't look too strange, but not nessecary.
a pick hammer?
Earlier in may.

I actually have nerve damage from not letting my hand heal completely after busting it all up, and do have a slight shake. My phone also just takes shit pictures.

A pistol.

But honestly, what kind of weapon construction is your game? A rapier with a war hammer hilt would be cool.

Otherwise, you can't really get away from looking awkward just hauling around an anti-armour weapon like a mace, while equiped for unarmoured combat.
>Rapier with a warhammer hilt
That actuall sounds both really cool AND like they'll never let it pass here.:(

Most LARPers in my battlegames are usually lightly armoured at best while skirmishing (I have a more heavy-duty weapon for big battles), so a rapier would work, but when the occasional Plated Knight/Mailed Nord joins them, I want to make it cool for them that someone is actually considering the fact they're armoured by bludgeoning/piercing the fuck out of them

Last one hit autosage.

I don't think that /cgl/'s sense of superiority over the rest of the lolita community is warranted anymore. In fact, I think this place has kind of become a hub for foreveritas hiding behind their wannabe ~elitism~. Over the past few years, I've noticed a large amount of seagulls saying ridiculously ita shit. Just a few of the most common examples...
>that series/colorway is so fucking hard to coordinate because I refuse to accept that the rest of the outfit doesn't have to incorporate every single color on the print, and if you say otherwise you're super boring and post a pic to prove these amazing coording skills you claim to have!
>not mercilessly OTT=ita
>nitpicks and ita are the same thing, right?
>if I call things ita enough, that means I'm clearly not one!
>meanwhile I'm gonna go defend these hideous old school monstrosities that were used as examples of ita back in the day
>also this literal cosplay of Sailor Moon in a lowtier offbrand dress in fandom lolita threads is totally goals

My other unpopular opinion is that I'd take a pretty but "boring" coord over most OTT ones any day.

sorry but this looks ita, even for Moitie.
not to mention wearing dreads if you're white or even just light-skinned will get you tons of screeching about "cultural appropriation"
Ita means the coord is so ugly it hurts your eyes
Lol/ita/ and itai, which means pain/it hurts
you know what I mean. Out of the people who actually browse here because it's a hobby, not because they want to bait "sjw"s or try to get a gf
Yes, that's why I like it so much! To me wearing wigs feels like changing yourself to fit a mold of the character of a lolita rather than wearing a fashion, whereas with the pic I chose it just seems like a girl enjoying her clothes and being herself

Its not the best coord ever but she looks good and I think it proved my point enough. As for the cultural appropriation thing, it really doesn't bother me at all but I'd rather not start up that argument on here haha

yeah I was really underwhelmed by this print and all the cuts are ugly as sin
My roommate had this exact jsk and it's easily like 100x better in person. The fabric looks cheap af in the stock photo
Not gonna lie I want this dress more than I want to breathe
If we're being honest, this is definitely not the ugliest thing JetJ has released. I actually kind of like it.
