/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.

Unfortunate.

>>9161278
With a few adjustments this wouldn't be too terrible. Trim the corset lacing bow (or get ride of it), get a petti with the right shape, styled wig and different headpiece. Put it on someone who feels comfortable wearing it and it's at least mediocre.

>>9161282
Just needs bigger hair to accommodate giant headbow (or smaller headbow) Really not that bad, maybe a bit too tight.

>>9161327
This looks really cute, even if it's not my favorite style, I dunno why this was posted here.

Bright white usakumya seems out of place, and needs wig, but again, really not that bad.

I have a WEGO backpack bag with a clear heart insert and I put a bunch of pins and arcylic charms on it, but the satin layer inside is drooping past the top of the heart so you can see it.

What do people do to solve this problem? Is my stuff just too heavy?

The disaster is almost upon us!

Let's recap:
>con takes place in both US and Canada simultaneously
>website has egregious misinformation on whether you need passports or not
>a horde of weeaboos will no doubt be stranded in Canada
>con chair is allegedly a pedophile

They released their schedule, and 10 out of the 13 event areas are on the US side. Why did they bother????

The most entertaining thing on the canadian side all weekend was promstuck for the homestucks. Music was good, most of it not even from homestuck just somehow related? Went with a friend, the bar was the best part.

Clifton Hill is always a good time, but other than that Canada's side was lacking in events.

Pokestop in the tiny, disappointing artist alley though.

I'm thinking of doing more comic cons. My first con this year was a really small anime con just to get a feel for AA. And I didn't expect to sell anything but I was plesantly surprised (didn't breakeven but I didn't expect that to happen either).

Next year, I'll apply to more in the area (just checked the table for one and it's $200, sheesh)
>>
>>9162852
200$ is pretty average for a comic-con. I know ECCC was about $345 for me this year and it went up slightly for next year but it is high attendance and included two badges as well as getting you exhibitor rates on stuff like hotel. If you can afford it you should take a chance on it especially since you do sell a lot of western stuff
>>
>>9162932
>>9162932
It was a con that I really enjoyed going to this year and they've expanded from one day to two so maybe it'll be an even bigger turnout. I'm applying for it anyway. It's not until March so I'll see.

Is it typical for them to want you to pay upon sending in your application? I selected the 'pay later' option since I'm not too sure yet but does that mean they accept everyone that sends in an application? That would explain the awful sharpie drawings that I saw one guy making last year.
>>
Does anyone have that photo of the bed that looks like a normal bed until you move the sheets and it's just storage boxes for like AA?

My brother moved across county and my dad was joking about making a man cave out of the extra room so I wanted to show him the photo (since my mom and I sew, he's outnumbered).

I thought I saw it on AANI, but I'm looking for 'bed' 'storage' etc everywhere and can't find it.
>>
>>9162983
Like this? It's called a "Space Up" bed from Parisot, you should be able to find more if you use that to search!

What were cons like in the past? Say very late 90s to mid 00s.

I've only recently been to a couple recently and it feels like I've missed the boat and that it's full of normies.

Were they different back then?

So this year I was really looking forward to Saboten because it finally seemed like they were finally listening to us anymore for what we want guest wise? I guess they are going for quantity of quality with their guest list. The convention has been around long enough and has enough attendance to get actual Japanese voice actor guests.

Oh well it looks like its going to be the same old same old with Saboten.

Anyways who is all going and what are you going to cosplay?

Started because I didn't see one

Are Arda wigs smaller than they used to be? I know they talked about downsizing awhile ago but I haven't ordered from them in a bit. I'm trying to help some guys put together their first cosplay group but one guy has an enormous head and the Epic wig I got for him just barely fits and is causing pain. I was hoping I could go to Arda but it looks like they have the same 23" size as Epic.

Mori threads have died down a little bit around here but check the archives for terms like mori general, mori kei, strega, and mori inspo. It's mostly female-oriented but you could probably find some pics of mori boys on your own. Most people shop at thrift stores or use Taobao and Aliexpress.
