I just had a nasty breakup with my boyfriend two weeks ago. He was visibly unhappy with me wearing lolita fashion and kept asking me awkward questions. When we broke up, he told me that he wanted someone who was a grown-up. I think the last straw came when I wore a classic OTT coord to Valentines Day dinner. This is the 3rd breakup in 5 years for me and the second that involved lolita fashion.

When do you tell your boyfriend about lolita fashion when you're in a relationship with them?

>>9821603 Was fully joking but thank you for adding a serious bit of expertise. I know 0 terminology but I know my clothes and I;m not awkward haha. I work in medicine direct with patients so I'm good at breaking the ice...I just haven't done any socializing with women who like stuff similar to me in 6 or so years and have largely given up due to the "Nerd/comcifangirl6867/So random lulz" anime and gaming communities. Plus I like frills, it's like hanging out with a sexy doily......
Once I've been dealing with normal normie guy, who was mocking me for buying knock-off (sic!). Since then I feel like it's better sometimes to date someone who doesn't care about lolita at all. I need my space free from community salt!

I'll just stop you right there because if you think lolita is sexy, this likely won't work out for you.

It's just as salty as I expected but man some of the pettiness can get as grating as lolcow's.
I hate throwing out the "abloo bloo everyone is a mean bully" but I wish some people would know when to tone down the salt
I've pretty much decided to go but I worry about this too. I am going with one friend and neither of us know anyone. I'm sure you'll be able to make friends, though! If you're really nervous and knowing someone before the event would help, I can happily drop my email.
Did anyone face a sudden shift in interests/priorities before? I used to love doing cosplay and costests but suddenly I don't have any fun doing these things at all. I even visited a con last weekend (without costume) and it was horrible and cringey.. I love my cosplay friends and enjoy manga, anime and games, but I feel like i've grown out of dressing up.
I just want to give all of my costumes away. Minimalism here I come.
My next con just dropped their schedule and one of the panels I was most excited for is the same time as the panel I'm running. :^(

I assigned the few that said they were willing to help out grinched anons their giftees but if they don’t follow through, there’s not much to be done at this point. Half of them didn’t even participate in this exchange (there are some anons who missed the deadline, some from /k/, etc.). I have sent out reminder emails but I can only chase them so much, so if anyone has suggestions I’m all ears.
if you need someone to help a double grinch hit me up, I'm alright with dropping in. I have positive feedback on ebay and LM too if that helps with the whole trustworthiness thing
Thank you so much!!! Sorry it took me so much to answer, life has been quite hectic lately.
Santa anon said that they’ve tried to contact my grinch saver but haven’t heard anything back. I’m a little sad that I’ve been double grinched, but I’ll still be participating next time!
EM from UK, this is your grinch saver - I posted your parcel with first class signed for at the beginning of the month and it doesn't seem to have reached you yet according to the tracking info - please let me know if you receive it!

ive found that rectangle headresses make my head seem flat so i usually put my hair into some kind of voluminous updo to balance it out
Dumb question. How is her hair cut?
Is it layered at all? I see a lot of these Larme hair styles that I just cannot tell.
I also don't know much about hair, so I guess that makes sense.
random anon chipping in to add: sometimes prescription meds can cause hair loss, either through poor circulation or other factors. my blood pressure meds have caused my hair to thin on top even more than it already was. I read somewhere that you could massage your scalp in an upwards motion from the ears/base of scalp toward the crown to try and force more blood up there. so I have been doing that for a few months and it seems to have helped somewhat. anyway, if you're taking any prescriptions, that might be something to look into.

There's this one photographer who bragged they're the best but when seeing the results it's shit tier. At the same time talks down about other photographers who do it better but don't brag at all and don't even need to brag because the people who like their stuff are in the droves.
Agreed, bragging will get you no where at all
Well volk buys his likes so that's pretty stupid.
Oh? Which photographer?

I'm so sick of seeing the adverts for his stuff. I know it's the FB algorithm, but fuck me, I've seen the same photo six times in two days of the same, half-naked girl.

Can't say but this person doesn't turn up to cons as much because he doesn't like cosplayers and yet will shoot them if nets attention from others. All I can say is that this person has an attitude problem and have lost a tonne of friends since the lip service this person gives to others for pathetic reasons.
I'm assuming he's an East Coast photographer then?

Hey /cgl/!

I know there's a decent population here that attends mid-west anime cons, and we had a decent turnout at the /cgl/ meet at Naka '17 this past March, so who's ready for another?

Naka-Kon is March 16-18 and so far Steve Blum, Sean Chiplock, and Ian Sinclair are some of the guests attached.

Who /hype/ here?

>>9821527 SM4SH? I love the game but half the fans are pure sperg. Its like seeing the old grognards at a gaming con swish around the WH40K. I still get called homo-chan for suggesting L5R as a table.
I'm not from Kansas but I had a good time at Sausome last year. Small but had a really solid musical guest and a nice game room
>>9821551 Its mostly empty on the site right now...but I may try this one to make up for missing naka.Thx.
The smash 4 tourney was cool.

Personally I really dislike crossovers and I think the dark shirt fabric really doesn't work on dva (shouldve stuck with white) but the construction looks fine
These look terrible and I feel like everyone's defending them because the girls are fat.

In your experience what are the best and worst fandoms you experience at a con?

>con season doesn’t start until April
Anon if you are from where I think you’re from, I can’t help but agree. Doesn’t help that on top of our country being a few months behind on the pickup, our city is still a bit behind that so even though a fandoms dead online, it’s still at its worst at our cons.

I might be biased but the Love Live fans are the ones I hate the most. Acting like they’re the hottest shit just because they got the newest costume from taobao, entering their bought stuff into craftsmanship comps for attention, and giving downright disgusting looks to anybody who DARES cosplay the same girl as them, it’s so damn tiring.
>>9821212 HITMAN? My nigga...
As far as drawing them, the character designs are rather simple. For cosplay, they're a logistical mess. Consider that even the simplest one to do like Amethyst still requires people to have a gem to affix to their chest, body paint and a wig to appropriately pull it off means that while simple, this still isn't a beginner friendly cosplay. Add in complexity like visors and the styling/headforms you would need to do hair for Pearl, Peridot, Rose Quartz or Garnet and you've got some pretty complex costumes going on. Certain characters like Greg, Steven, Lars or Sadie could be closet cosplays but most of those look terrible if you don't have their strange body types.

I know there's not much going on right now in terms of cons down here, but why not.

Anybody doing Megacon since that's the next major con happening down here?
So what's your next con?
What are you cosplaying?
What're you excited for?
Past stories?
Any new drama?

Hey, anybody remember that Mexican girl from Miami that got shit a few weeks ago for saying she was going to sell nudes when she's like 14? I think she went by Ramen Princess or something. Well, now she wrote she's 18 on her IG and has had her friends make posts saying that she's 18 too. I hope all these guys go to jail for supporting her bullshit.
She's actually 18 though
She's lying again. She isn't 18 until March 23.

Con season is creeping up edition

Old thread here: >>9800945
What's the absolute lightest way I could stuff a tail like this? My cosplay doesn't allow for much of a belt so the less this thing weighs the better. Ideally it would also stay relatively flexible.

Wireframe it out of the plastic boning people use for cheap corsets. It isn't quite as rigid as actual wire, though it's not as flexible as soft stuffing either.

The fur fabric will still weigh a ton, though, and the plastic wireframe won't be light as air either.
You're going to have to post the costume so we can help with the mounting because you're going to need more than a belt if you don't want this to drag on the floor
