/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.

Made this turtle shell for my Mario costume. Going to ride it around Tokyo next week.

what's a cosplay you've always wanted to do but for one reason or another never did?

I always wanted to cosplay Anarchy panty but was always too self conscious before now to do it. I've lost about 80 lbs this past year and finally feel like I could do it.

Get yourself a metal bending brake and learn to solder/braze/weld.

My friend is the Gilgamesh cosplayer in the group so it would be weird for me to also do Gilgamesh.
Really vague, but I've always wanted to do a character from pokemon. Someone with a dynamic look like a gym leader or a well known trainer. The hardest part is picking cause there's so many characters in pokemon I'm scared I wouldn't have any recognition.

Nayrt but what does that even mean? Most lolitas who post on cgl are also part of communities. If they weren't then there wouldn't be lolita comm threads.
When did i ever say i wasn't apart of the community or didnt post on cgl?
Is there a tag for wearing burando casually? There's like 5 posts under #dailyalamode, was wondering if it's not a thing or people are using a different tag.
I use the casuallolita tag pretty often. If it's too far removed from lolita I'll just use the tag for the brand along with #jfashion #kawaii or whatever it falls under. I wasnt aware that anyone still used the term #dailyalamode since the decline of the lj comm. Maybe it's something i might start using.

Are there no other tags? I'm honestly just interested to see how other girls wear their IW to the office or non-poofy dresses for dailywear inspo, not so much interested in girls wearing poofy skirts.

so this year's 11/11 sale will be my first on taobao. looking to get cosplays. generally what time do the sales start and end and how big are they (50% off etc.)?
unless you're like 6"5 or something, you'd be fine. But if you're 6"5, your proportions probably aren't all that suited for any sort of modelling really.
Oh shit, really? I'm still waiting on mine.

Sale prices usually get posted around early November depending on the size of the store. Bigger stores promote earlier and show you either the full 11/11 price or they'll do a 'mystery' price where it'll say something like "11.11 price: ?5.99" where you don't know the first number but you can see part of the discount you'll get.
Anyone know where I could get some colored tights, please?
Taobao is suddenly requiring me to log in to browse. Clearing cookies and using a different browser doesn't solve the problem. Has this happened to anyone else?

I'm not the pin OP, but you are cracking me up with your nuts-o levels of salt and cattiness. I love it. But I still stand by my theory that you can't draw and just shit on others who aren't master crafters yet.

There are anons here who regularly make like $10k at cons but you keep telling yourself that everyone must be bad at drawing if they don't put up with bullshit.

For those of you do pillows, do you usually join group orders or do you get large batches? I had my eye set on this one supplier for THE longest time bc of their relatively low MOQ, emailed them and turns out they don't even do custom printing lmao. Such misleading listings urgh. Just want to test some pillows out for myself ):

What made him such an enjoyable tog to work with anon? I don't have a horse in the shitfest >>9664964 has been trying to kick up but I am curious what sets Creed apart from however the rest of the Australian togs are like.
He was very straight to the point, and knew exactly what poses would work with my cosplay and give flattering photos. Idk he didn’t really talk much?? He was just very focused on his work and his photos, which is a nice change considering a lot of other photographers have reputations of complaining about people in the comm haha
So what now dickhead. One of these comments isn't your so called samefag.

I don't mind outing myself for these two posts, because one of them was in response to the assumption that the only person who'd defend Creed is Creed himself. (Disclaimer: I'm not Creed. ) But yeah, since someone else has claimed one other post, that means there are at least 3 posters who'd vouch for him.
"Etc"... You mean, "people who've worked with him"? "People who know him"? "Friends"?

Itabag FAQ and Beginners Guide

Honestly, it's because of this that I held off on making an itabag for my YOI sonfu. I waited until literally this sleeping keychain came out and I realized how much I really, truly loved him. Now that I'm actually building the bag, I feel like I'm falling all over him again.

Also, it's because of posts like these that I wish itabagging didn't become so big. there's this imaginary pressure to make an itabag "just because" and not out of a serious love for the character, and that results in financial regrets. Never put down money for the trend, because there will always be more seasonal anime.

S.E.M anon reporting in. Heading to Ikebukuro with this one soon and I'm hype since the anime is airing but I've loved them forever.

Nice and tidy army husbando bag! 30+ idols ftw!
Tiger with ripped off shirt figure? Yes. Yes very good. Carry one.
Uwaaaah, naisu bag you got there S.E.M!nonny!! I actually am working on a Touma bag right now, just struggling to decorate the base because my dumpass wanted a white bag.

(and I feel u on the anime adapt, it still hasn't sunk in my brain and chest how they're all animated now? it's like it was only yesterday when i stumbled upon the mobage, but it's been 2-3 yrs since then... wew. It's very nice to see more people into it now thanks to the anime/LoS!)

Wew, as salty as this was, thank you anon.
I just wanted a few site recs since this is my first time making a bag. I don't find it spoon feeding as I don't want you to find me anything, I was just asking that if anyone has bought from somewhere good they could quickly write out a name.
Is the weight of your itabag making you cranky?

Weeaboo horror stories. I want to bring those back, I want to see some old weeaboo horror story caps posted, and even better if you get new ones.

For posts about you being a weeb:

What is the cringiest weeb shit you've done /cgl/?
Cosplayed in public?
Said "nya!" constantly?
Told strangers your undying love for Sasuke?

tell a story of you being cringy
provide a photo of you being cringy (you can edit out your face), or upload your shitty weeb art

Had a presentation for school with a group of people. Proposed to present in costumes. Thought it would be a great idea to wear my maid costume. Had the cat ears, tail and bell to boot. Sadly, I was forced to change in the gym locker rooms and so crossed half the school in weeb shit. Even had one guy whistle behind me. Fucking. Nightmare.

Plugging my sale from the BST thread, figure some of y'all might be interested. Feel free to make me an offer.
I recently bought this Innocent World Flocked Dot jsk, but it didn't come with the belt, so I was thinking of buying some fabric and trying to make a replacement myself. Would velveteen be alright? I've been looking around on taobao and I've found some that seems to be for upholstery and pillows and such. Would that be good to use since it's stiffer (I think), or would I want to use a different fabric and stabilizer? Any tips would be lovely!
Or medium to heavy buckram. Which is like stiff interfacing made specifically for hats.

The simplicity pattern might be the answer we've been looking for:

You sound bothered.
Nah, anon is just mega salty about being posted for being a frog faced ita.
Why are you talking as if I posted myself to an ita thread? That hideous shit isn't me. I'd probably never go outside if that was me.
I didn't mean to sound like I was talking to you, but instead to the person posted.
I like ita threads as a tough-love learning tool to not look as shit, so I thought posting tips on how to reduce the severity of the trainwreck would be helpful, especially as it seems the anon in the pic is causing a fuss in the comments.
Who invited Henry VIII and how does a human being even function at the size of that woman on the left? I’m surprised she can stand up.

You post here, you’re a gull.

There are plenty of obvious ita’s in full view, though.
