/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.

Just be careful about dye running. Soaking for me resulted in the whites being turned pink.
they're cute but i feel a little disappointed that i don't love either of them. same with the rest of this batch of releases. ribbon berry bunny is busy and sweet cream princess isn't the kind of sweet i enjoy, if that makes sense

more power to the people who want it though. it's kind of a relief that i'm not totally in love with anything new right now though, 'cuz it means more cash to hunt other things down.
OP could use some color catchers to help with that, though I've never tried them myself so I can't really say how well they work. I've only ever seen one person have an issue with that, but it was with Milky Berry, which is arguably the worst print ever made in terms of color bleeding.
What is the deal with this sudden return of Old School? It's a great style, don't get me wrong. But so many people are doing it so, so badly. Did a brand do a re-release? Did someone start a trend? Seriously, what the fuck is going on?
Have you seen old school prices lately? It's dirt cheap.

Finally got the courage to brave going to a con, so I finally purchased my the wig I needed this morning.

My absolute best friend notified me an online store had my dream dress in my size, and I swiped that up. My wallet is suffering because of it and I can only imagine what customs will charge.

Last some pins that finally got restocked, got all 3.

I don't know about you gulls but I'm sick of the recent influx of people attention whoring with non-lolita/ouji coordinates. This shit needs to stop.

where do these people come from
Idk anon, this coord confuses me. Why lavender??

The dress is a nice start but someone needs to send her a lolita coord checklist.
She just wants to show off her designer stuff. That's literally the only reason I can gather she posted.

Girl, if it's not Japanese, we don't care.

I think this is a common phenomenon with other cities that host Harajuku fashion walks. I've noticed that in my city, the lolitas (whether they dress decently or not) who attend those events don't ever actually attend the regular lolita meets or are not a part of the main community.

Cosplay, J-fashion, Lolita fashion. Put all your basic female dog questions here and stop whinging in other threads. Also, if you have any informative tutorials / guides / whatever links; dumb them here as a preventative measure.

If party city carries the leg avenue pettis, that might work. I dunno where you're located but you could probably yelp stores around your location for it too.
Interesting stuff! Thanks!

Have any gulls tried those silicone backless bras for cosplay? How is it compared to the breast lifting tape? I have no experience with either so I'd like to hear your opinions. Any other recommendations for a similar strapless way to make boobs not saggy?
they literally said they don't mind female pronouns while wearing lolita, which probably means they don't mind being perceived as female while wearing it either

I don't like those fingers, I wish they were more closed, I don't know how to
I don't frequent these threads often but I'm always blown away when I see your work. You've improved so much over the years, it's really impressive.
ikr? This guy is the best
How is the mask attached there? I'm guessing magnets, but the way you wiggle it back into place it almost looks like you've got elastic or something on there too to help.
Its purely magnetic, its just a tight fit in that video since this was still pretty early in the build so I had to wiggle it a bit. Some parts have since been adjusted so its smoother now. It is able to fully detach and be stowed via magnets onto the shield if I need an extended break.
Thanks guys... Im glad I have improved. Its been a long and interesting road so far.
Is that you and the current state of your costume in that video? Or is this someone else your just using as an example?

you are at a convention, its often literally on the back of your badge that you acknowledge that people will take pictures of you.
I have a hard time thinking it was more juried this year because I really don't notice any kind of difference in quality between accepted/rejected artists. But then again, I find myself saying that for a lot of juried con results I see...
They're probably not even going to upload the video or actually get more than 100 views depending on how big the con is. I'd try to not worry about it so much. If it's really bothering you that much you have to not be a pussy and ask them to not film your table.
I personally don't have a problem with it so I don't know why you specifically replied to me. I'm not the original anon who asked about it.

Not all conventions have that clause on their badges. Recordings are different from photos in the first place because most people take photos for personal use at cons but videos generally end up online somewhere for public consumption. There's also the fact that some people don't even like people taking photos of their table.

Anyway, not disagreeing with you anon - just providing a reason for why some people might not like it.
>Keep in mind that Japanese fan merch is mainly prints, doujinshi, and your occasional art book.

Not... really though? I follow Korean and Japanese artists on Twitter and they frequently run preorders for acrylic charms, standees, dakimakura, wallscrolls, and plush pillows. My friends have attended anime events in Japan and brought back fanmade 3D goods as well. There are Korean forums/sites dedicated entirely to fan created "goods". East Asian artists have been making things you would consider bootleg for years before similar merch made it over to the U.S. con circuit.

>TL;DR just do the exact same shit you'd be doing anyways with kali/escrima/arnis longarms.
This is LARP not HEMA
Well, it's also just that there are only so many ways you can swing a sword. Escrima and arnis in particular are based on Iberian vulgar fencing (esgrima), which is very similar to other cut-and-thrust fencing around Europe.

Also yeah just fight how you want. We're nerds in a field playing with sword-shaped foam slabs.

>padding for the body
>padding for the head
And congrats, you're the average Witcher bandit. Add more stuff as you see fit.
Is it oiled up or something?
>Escrima and arnis in particular are based on Iberian vulgar fencing (esgrima)
Doesn't seem to be, my hands never come away from it oily just grey. I rubbed it down for an hour straight and that didn't make a dent in the grey rub off.
