/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.

Apparently an infamous military sim coser /stalker got into some dispute with other cosers and KABOOM went a pepper spray.

How did professional cosplay become a thing? I just saw a special about how some cosplayers take in 50k USD a month from appearances and swag. Yikes!

You're thoughts? Cosplay used to be about passion for the character you dressed up as. Shame, I say!

OnS 12 is finally out! I'm really stoked about the tiered Alice dress, such a fabric hog though. I still think the Queen of Hearts dress has a lot of potential, just with not hideous fabrics. That lace overlay they picked looks super cheap to my eye. What is everyone working on?

Or ask an extroverted friend or family member to come along until you get the hang of it. I’ve been helping my table mate with anxiety talk to customers and other artists, and she’s gotten better at interacting over the course of a year. Otherwise yea, online selling is stress free.

Because I was a cringy teen who was all into reenacting OTP business at the time. It's gay because we were two girls cosplaying two guys. Either way, it's gay.

So it was only gay because the characters you cosplayed were both male.
Basically it's okay for girls to kiss because there is no stigma associated with it.

Otakorp puts on Otakon, an anime convention now in DC.
Budget meeting this month to finalize a $ 500,000 loan plan. Many mistakes that basic forsight could have avoided thru better leadership have cost Otakorp over a million dollars.
Once the outstanding debts Otakorp has are paid, they're so far in the red right now that they need pre reg to open early (december) and do well and/or get the $ 500,000 loan just to exist past Otakon Vegas. Otakon Vegas has cost Otakorp over a $ 100K a year, but bad staffers wouldn't let it die before now. This was a passion project that violated the ethical and legal requirements to be on a Non Profit Board.
Even with the loan, if Otakon DC 2018 does not seriously out perform Otakon 2017 membership wise, Otakorp will be in the same situation it's in now also dealing with loan payments and an inability to take a second loan and will bankrupt. It's going to take an eight thousand membership spike from the 2017 con turn out to save Otakon.

Why am I putting this here? The Board and the Staff have lengthy discussions about the problem. There are years of issues, inquiries, ect into some of the bad decisions that continued. The board and voting members debated, but those with the most pull always got their way. They have failed the attendees and as a non profit answer to them. If Otakon is a convention you hit up, things are looking really bad. They have an obligation to be more transparent and work to prevent the mess they've created from fully imploding. Even writing this, I've betrayed them but honored the membership.

Otakon attendees, I'm sure some of you will read this. Let it spread like wild fire. I can't talk on this beyond anonymously or the powers that be at Otakorp will use ties they have with other conventions I also work to black list me from doing what I love. They had huge rainy day funds they tore thru, and those funds were from attendees.

Just got mine in and it's the L model (iirc they have different sizes). A 3in one would fit if you do it vertically. I have some 2.5in acrylics that I have at a diagonal.

The "usable" area is roughly 2.5in tall, closer to 2in if you don't want the zipper to obscure parts.

Hope this helped.

In defense of the admin, buying and selling from Facebook groups is still a little sketch in the realm of online shopping. Paypal is the only real safeguard in this instance if the buyer pays that much and then nothing shows up it's on the group admin to deal with and that's probably not something they want to be made responsible for.

Also, rare or not, a strap for that price should at least be a little more interesting than Yuri holding a cake.

Eh, to be fair, I wouldn't sell bootleg merch. Buying it is one thing but selling it to another person is worse. I honestly just toss it when I have no use for it anymore. Only official merch is worth anything when sold secondhand.

>>9724272
You thought an entire con was a disappointment because it didn't have a filled out arcade?
>>
>>9723761
I don’t know but it was pretty bad. Didn’t help that there was absolutely no one besides the translator running the fashion show.
>>
>>9724289
No, that was just one factor. The fan panels were scheduled horrendously and they allowed way too much gay shit to fill out the schedule. Organizing was poor and confusing, the guidebook being filled with errors is a good example.

And like >>9724285 said, the problem with the arcade was more that they spread 5 machines across a huge room (and had like twice that many pachinko machines, which are garbage).

I still had a blast, just not because the con itself was well executed. There were some good guests (DLL and Kanako Itou), and probably would have felt a little less underwhelmed if I didn't miss their events.
>>
The arcade was really depressing. First time going to CAD but it was enjoyable I'd say. Had a fun team meeting with everyone. Hopefully we can get everyone back together for ACEN.

On another note, I didn't get any pictures taken, But I was happy people were able to tell I was the gender swapped Madoka. I should see if I can get the Panorama Suite again. Room was beautiful

Post fursuit/mascot pics, questions, stories and anything else fursuit related.

Frequently asked questions:
>How much is a new suit?
Expect to pay at least 2k for a fullsuit commission, 3k+ for something padded, and higher for a realistic suit. Heads typically go for 400-1k, partials 900-1.5k.

Why do people enjoy dressing in skimpy clothing? Isn't it borderline freezing while wearing virtually nothing?
Same reason, because they enjoy dressing up as things. The thing they enjoy dressing up as happens to be furry (literal definition, not subculture).
>>
>>9724474
Thank you
>>
>>9724464
Because it's fun! I know there's a whole escapism culture and getting to be someone/something else for a day, but that exists in every hobby. Really it's no different from any other elaborate costume. There's an element of performance to wearing a Fursuit where you need to really exaggerate your movements so it actually shows underneath all that fur, that's a fun challenge like entering a cosplay competition performance but on a less stressful basis.

I do it because I love being fluffy and cute for a while instead of a boring ass office worker who has to conform to society. But I also like the social aspect and the art elements. Overall the fun outweighs the negative and I'm always capable of taking a god damn shower after wearing a hot costume.
