• 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.

What are you going to dress up as this Halloween?

Pic is me, I dressed as a Lich last year. I'm thinking of doing it again, but I'm also thinking of other concepts that are a little more classic-horror. Haven't started on anything yet, which is a problem! I am especially nervous about the makeup job; my face was originally just caked in smudged eyeshadow, and then I met a wandering makeup artist who corrected it and made me look appropriately villainous. I'd prefer to have full control over the process but I don't think I have enough time to figure it all out...

I love going out to bars on Halloween and getting to be spooky and cool. I wish costume parties happened more often during the year, but at least we get like a whole week at the end of October!

I'm a huge fan of all things horror so feel free to recommend or discuss anything that gives you ~spooky~ artistic inspiration. I love new things and old things alike!

He's one of Shio's friends, the poor lad. Seems like she couldn't get any actual famous cosplayers so she just settled for whoever was able to keep up with her crap and seemed like he fitted that profile. Not that he was much of a guest anyway. All he did was talk crap about his ex, who wasn't his ex(?), but I guess that story was still more entertaining than the con itself.
>>
>>10012645
Some guy with barely 200 followers on his IG. He claims he started cosplaying 2 years ago and that he has "a lot" of experience when it comes to crafting & props, specifically 3D-printing - regarding his introduction on the KyoCon programme. Never heard of him before though.
>>
>>10012650
I heard he broke up with his ex and replaced her for some 16 years old kid? Nice reputation you have there
>>
>>10012550
>>10012650
Now I actually wonder if xiu and shio are still friends, lol. Obviously Raylon was keeping up with shio's bullshitting while xiu didn't. I wouldn't be surprised if this has a big impact on their friendship rn. Though after reading everything shio has done i probably wouldnt wanna be friends anymore with her either
>>
>>10012657
Is their even a friendship to begin with? Isn't it because he is rolling on Shio half-assed popularity?

Hello Gulls! December is looming ever closer which means it is time for Secret Santa!

Yes, its early.. We are opening it earlier again this year for a couple of reasons, mostly due to the amount of people who order gifts online as it gives enough time for things to arrive before the due shipment dates, but also in hopes it gives people enough prep time to send things on time as well.

If you have not joined a Secret Santa event before:
> Fill out the form linked in this thread
> Your details will be sorted into groups and you will be matched with others with similar interests
> You are allocated names, and details of your match who you buy gifts for according to your allocated price range
> Christmas comes around - a gift arrives at your door!

>>10012426
Honestly, I am happy people who aren't timely with the signup don't get to participate. Who can guarantee that you will be timely with sending out your gift?

Sure, real life happens, but if you're so busy there is no time to fill out a 10 min form in 2 weeks, maybe you shouldn't participate.

she's done this pose a lot, but I feel like it's not the most flattering. It makes her thigh look bigger than her ass and she's plenty skinny which means it just makes her ass look flat.

I don’t like trades and I only ever see posts with „no trades“ on them. Trades take a lot of trust from both parties, and then on cgl? Hell no.
>>
>>10012596
Same for me, I just hate it when people just wear a dress, socks and shoes and call it a day. Hair and make-up is important as well.
It really helps that it comes from the GLB as well. But even if you look at old snaps, hair was always styled. And being lazy is no excuse as there are plenty of good looking pre-styled wigs.
>>
I'm getting a bit too consumed by social media and the need for approval/likes lately.
I just bought the tree little bears (July,Sophia and Lillian) from Baby for a reasonable price but I just...don't even really need them,I just wanted to show them off on my new purse on instagram and stuff. They're super cute and i'm glad i got them but it's 60$ that could've went on a thing i would wear. I also didn't buy an Infanta dress I like only because it's not brand and thus wouldn't be "as cool" as brand.
What the hell is happening to me,i wasn't like that before
>>
>>10012637
Not only this, but also manners. They matter. And I'm not talking about trying to be a Rococo Princess, but rather basic manners.
I know a small comm that is full of lazygirls, that love to swear, drink a lot, be loud and just be very unladylike. They even take pride in that. Once I attended a meet with them and one girl just took off her sloppy wig, scratched her head and put it on again. Just like that in broad daylight. Her posture and way of sitting down was like a gangster as well. She's the kind of girl to put on an AP set and call it a day.
>>
>>10012641
I know what you mean and there is really only one cure: stay away from social media and go out and wear lolita. Take picture, but don't post them. Spend time in lolita, alone, for yourself.

What are some character designs that are too ugly to be successfully cosplayed?

I may be in the minority but I think bnha cosplays are fucking ugly as hell with the exception of some of the main characters' hero costumes. The school uniform is among the ugliest as far as school uniforms go, and some of the side characters have designs that are so bad that they inspire crimes against nature as seen in pic related.

Thoughts?

Curious how many of you have gotten prints with a foil finishing layer and if it pays off. It seems popular for prints online, but are people willing to pay more for a limited run of foil prints at a con?
>>
>>10011170
I like it because I value the artists I purchase from. I also have a fine art background and it is common practice there.

Although if you or any other artists sign the front, please practice. I have one set of prints that I regret having signed because the signature is so ugly and large and totally does not match the artwork on the print.

i read the first faq and i'm still confused on how to size acrylic key charms i plan on making. what's your usual canvas size when you draw them? do the suppliers resize it for you when they receive it or...?
>>
>>10012631
I draw on 3000px squared, but you can just draw them at the size you want them to be? Just remember to set the proper resolution beforehand. And worst case scenario, yes, most suppliers will resize it for you but be prepared for inconsistency or not having exactly what you envisioned.

It's that time of year again. Time to celebrate Yanners and another year of waifu searching. Happy birthday, Mr. Yan!
