/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.

Those jewels around the shoes make a really nice concept, but i don't really see it matching the rest of the coord. Otherwise, it's really beautiful.

There's never really stuff i want at conventions, i might buy a couple of shirts and posters but i tend to buy something expensive then look at it a week later and say "i could've bought two weeks worth of food instead" then just feel like it was a waste forever.

Tomorrow's the big day everyone. Anyone still con crunching?
>>
>>9889647
Just little things like wig styling and packing!
>>
>>9889647
Can I just say something about con crunching? I hate it. Not because of the fear of not getting a cosplay done, but because of all of the people complaining. It really pisses me off when people decide do make these intricate costumes and then don’t do any form of time management and then they’re stuck the day before the con with half a completed costume.
I’ve seen way too many posts about momocon crunch this year, somehow it’s gotten worse.

>>9889634
You have to make the distinction betweeen buying lolita and wearing lolita. The thrill of acquiring something new is addicting. At a certain point you have to recognize that you're buying things to buy them not to own them.
>>
Today I decided to take a break from lolita. I need to clarify, I'm not leaving. I'm totally not ready to let the things I own go. At another hand I figured out I was shoehorning myself into fashion so long I stopped feeling anything about it. Today I was lurking for leathers by AllSaints and somehow I felt that new cute jacket will make me much happier than brand piece for the same price. There are a few dresses I was eyeing lately, and they are still in stock, but idk. I do it out of habit, I just don't feel it anymore. Maybe, I'll be back later.
>>
I need to get this off my chest or it feels like I'll explode. I feel like no one else in my friend group will care. The only way I can say this is related is that I've helped this girl (I'll refer as C I guess) with props and armor pieces in cosplay.

So i like C. me and C are friends and I asked her out. She said yes and we had gone out a couple of times. We both have great times but C broke it off saying she was emotionally unavailable. I get that and I'm not going to force anything so I agree to break it off.

Fast forward to less than two weeks later and she's gushing about this guy she met playing a game who she says sounds like a character in it (I think it's a stretch but w/e). At first it was kinda funny until most of the conversations we had were oddly sexually charged concerning him. That hurt but C's an adult who can do what she wants.

Later friends play online detective and they find out he's either in highschool or fresh out of high school (we're late 20s). They relay this to C and nothing has changed. Now this entire situation feels creepy.

Are my feeling clouding my judgement? Probably not but it feels good to write this out.

The owner of that bag is my goal. I met her at the same con when I spotted the bag! She's a total sweetheart who gets embarrassed and shy over how much she loves the character. She said she wants to keep improving her bag because she's seen so many beautiful bags, that she can "do him justice" with her own.

I LOVE these kinds of baggers, the one's who genuinely love the character and want to improve constantly rather than just the FOTM baggers after attention. She seemed very surprised and flattered.

>>9889588
I'm talking about when you haven't found someone to trade with yet. How do you put things up that are available to trade but not up for sale.
>>
>>9889649
Explicitly state that is a trade only in the details of the listing as well as the title. That way if some dumb shit buys it without actually wanting to trade you can avoid negative feedback for not going through and selling it. Putting it at an absurdly high price like $9000 should prevent that, though.
>>
>>9889655
Good idea! I thought maybe I was missing something since I'm new to LM

It's April and there's no Fanime thread? What's wrong with the world?

Who are you cosplaying as? Any interest in the Ghibli symphony thing? Is Fanime good for anything other than seeing friends and photoshoots and parties? Any CGL meetup this year? How will we cope with Psycho Donuts up and moving to another side of town, the Fanime food options seem to be waning.

>>9889620
Most cons that I attend usually have things set up a day or two before the con usually by people that know good places to actually meet up. There are sometimes smaller ‘meetups’ that are last minute and usually just people already at the con that are bored and want to hang out with no real prior planning.
>>
>>9889615
I assume so. I’ve never been to this con so I don’t know any points of interest or actually meeting locations to bring people to. Hopefully an Anon (not the Deadpool degenerate) will set something up. If that guy actually shows up, I’m taking my group and we’re going to form an all girls meet up.

https://dreamingqueenhairtopquality.aliexpress.com/store/1130153

https://evahair.aliexpress.com/store/1844012

I havent had the chance yet to order from Dreaming Queen but I have this one from Eva: https://www.aliexpress.com/item/Short-Lace-Front-Human-Hair-Wigs-For-Black-Women-Brazilian-Remy-Bob-Wig-With-Baby-Hair/32805353901.html?spm=a2g0s.9042311.0.0.f5004c4dx0IAZv

I've since taken it apart it reconstructed it as the cap was a touch too small and the hair looks different now after I deep con'd it but just from experience remember that you get what you paid for, especially if you're ordering non-remy hair.

In it's original state, the hair's pretty soft and the wig is constructed well enough. It's pretty much a 360 wig as the lace goes all around but by god does this damn thing shed! I want to say it's because the tracks are single wefted so the hair isn't that secure. Also it's 130% density but it's thin. I now see that they're offering it in a 150% density and virgin hair so there's that.

I've also had a good experience hair wise with Gossip. I can't tell you how there are communication wise as it was my mum who originally ordered the wig but I don't remember her complaining about them. I got her 360 curly wig, the hair was good, minimal shedding, etc. Too bad my sister stole the wig. I'm still mad about that lol.

>Too much of a cheapskate to spend €22 per day on a con where there are plenty of events to participate in, mostly for free
Even the Comic Cons charge more just for the privilege of entering an oversized dealer room where you have to pay extra for most events and the arcade machines. But good news, there's always Tomo which should be more in your price range.

You can see JAM Project live and go to all kinds of other events for only €72,50. That's a steal. Normally people would pay around that for just the concert of JAM Project, with seats that probably aren't nearly as close to the stage.

I think Zap is the cheapest for quality aside from Acorn Press, but AP has been a tad spotty even after their reopening so I've heard.

I go because I enjoy the environment. The people attending usually are what makes it fun for me. Some cosplays are good and the gaming rooms are pretty fun. It’s not worth 100 dollars, but that’s why I buy my passes when they launch. Not when they get too expensive.
>>
>>9888726
The biggest issue is that this "con" became a pure marketing event. Guests are picked for who will get the most profit, panels are created by staff and repeated daily to advertise their paid events/guests, vendors were charged a ton so they have to charge a fuckton in return (which they make back through normies), and PCC won't pay for comfort while people wait in giant security lines out in the sun.

>>9889445
Honestly I used to think the same until I realized all the fun that happens outside of the convention. Cosplayers, neckbeard /tg/ gamers, and general debauchery fill the area if you just look.
>>
>>9889445
Yeah I mean I generally only look forward to meeting people, but in recent years of the cons I just have less to connect with people about Marvel/DC shit especially since they are just pumping out movies left and right, it's not worth keeping up.

>>9889476
>Cosplayers, neckbeard /tg/ gamers, and general debauchery fill the area if you just look.

Yeah I think last year I had more fun, and spent more time outside the actual con center than in it. One of the reasons I am not going this year is for that
