/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.

>Solid color tights or tights with a soft texture/pattern look better than printed tights like 3/4 of the time

>I often see printed-tights coords and think "this would look better with more low-key tights"

>I almost never see solid color tights coords and think "this would look better with busier tights"

>Solids and prints alike should have the same attention to detail and be decked out with design features like pintucks, pleats, special buttons, embroidered lace, etc.
>no more thin, flighty pieces please.
I'm not sure I agree about liking the "weird" stuff (though I do respect Meta for doing their own thing for decades now), and prints combined with details like pintucks or pleats might be a bit counterproductive or too busy looking, but still, I definitely agree with the above.
>I judge lolitas who don't incorporate J indie or items from other jfash styles into their lolita wardrobes
Can you explain this one, please? J-indie I can sort of understand, but why would you judge someone for not incorporating other styles into their wardrobe?
I don't think transgender women should be allowed in the fashion. I see this fashion as a safe space for women, and I'm tired of men invading my space under the guise of being a woman. It's a shame because I definitely do believe in transgender women, but their struggles are not the same as mine, and too often men pretend to be trans in the lolita community to satiate their weird fetishes.

he's fit all around (he's played basketball his whole life up until college for a bit) but isn't active anymore

he looks normal with a shirt on (gut doesn't hang over or stick out through his shirt) and is very tall and really only has his beer belly (well, from beer)

i love it, and tell him that but i think he's trying to lose weight for me and i keep telling him don't lose the belly
What if your boyfriend retained his personality but he became a Chad, surely you wouldn't be disappointed with that?

Also, out of curiosity, how did you two meet?

Trash pairing that killed the franchise in a trash bootleg bag
>want to post superior Tales ship bag
>not enough merch exists for me to really feel it's complete
It hurts senpai.
I'm so sorry anon we can't have nice things because of zestiria. We can't even have berseria merch without them releasing toz beside it
I understand your pain for a series being slowly and gruesomely murdered by an uncaring franchise owner, but it's still a nice bag.
> Cleanly pinned mirrored merch layout
> Less common official merch
> Bag color scheme matches merchandise
> Additional decorations to tie together color scheme further

Although mostly I really liked that it had the mini wall scrolls hanging off the bottom, I'd love to see more non-Japanese bags with them.

how well do acrylic standees do in AA/online shops? I was thinking of making charms but the art I did was a bit too much for dmsll charms, so I was thinking of acrylic standees instead? Any thoughts on this?
I think it really depends on the art and/or fandom. I believe I saw this one for sale at ALA and if I was a fan I'd have really considered putting money down for it.
Jesus people are getting so fancy with their merch now. I miss the simpler times when competition weren't that high.
>>the majority of decent (as in: not selling perlers, shitty bows made with bought fandom material, shit tier art, only boring original comics etc)

The best Artist alleys are the one where the majority of artists fall into any of the above categories and you make 5k+ while everyone around you is complaining it’s slow.
Too bad most cons are Jury based now so it seems to be getting more and more rare.
> It's too bad conventions can have nice Artist Alleys because I'm happiest when my only competition are unpopular or losers, and my profit bottom line is more important than fostering an engaging, entertaining, and fun community

You seem like a highly unpleasant person.

Hey Gulls! I'll be moving to Vancouver soon and am trying to get my bearings on the area as a whole. What are the cool things to do and see (anime and geek related, but also in general, assuming that's allowed in here)? Any recommendations for hangout spots, shops, events, social gatherings, etc?

I'm hoping to check out Anime Revolution in August. Does anyone have any stories about that con?

Sorry to start the thread out with a ton of questions! I guess I'm just a little nervous about the move. It seems like all of the really awesome stuff is over in Toronto, so I've been a little worried about finding things to do on the west coast!

Feel free to discuss other Canada stuff in here as well, obviously. This thread isn't specifically meant to be about Vancouver alone.

in the DDLC pics? oh come on take a good look at that and tell me you can't tell that's one of those fake boob pads, the surface may be shooped but still plastic-y and you can tell by the overall shape that it's just sitting on top of the real thing.
oh shit thought you meant purrblind lmao nvm
Guess I'll see you at the panel then!
Anyone up and coming we should keep our eye on?
Vancouver has Kupocon tomorrow, Next Music from Tokyo in May, and Final Fantasy Distant Worlds in June but that's probably already sold out. Those are the only notable/interesting things I'm aware of

Fuck you pussy.

Well aren't you just the saltiest cracker in the box.
There are many other factors here, but I reserve a lot of anger towards Sexpo for the perception of cosplay in Australia.
I hide it from coworkers because I don't want to be perceived as a fucking nerd.

I'm male though, I imagine the experience is different for a girl.
Sexpo's cosplay contest is so new it's not to blame, if anything i'm glad for it. The freaks who want to wear just strips of tape over their vaj and nips can do it there and leave regular cons alone.

>theft and putting your already poor family in a tighter financial position is cute

she deserves to be ita.
I feel the need to clarify that the nazi remark was that a certain ww2 military style dress wasn’t a big deal and that while it comes of as shocking in the West, Japan doesn’t make those hateful connections to a uniform. StonerJW chan took that to mean she was a nazi sympathizer.
I did say the naivety of the situation was cute, not the actual act of stealing.
>she deserves to be ita.
Bit harsh, anon, she's just a child.
Is she ever going to stop looking gross
I don’t even care that she’s probably attention-posting anymore because if she’s enough of an ita to post herself here then I guess she’s right at home in this thread
Maybe if your fat thighs stretch out the cat face yeah

I'm a fan of it and I adore this game but jfc the fandom is one of the worst (and also best at times) i have seen
From what I've seen some of the Assassins Creed cosplayers can be a little edgy and cringey (especially if they're fat) but usually they're pretty chill about what theyre doing

>the art style is cringy

Ah yes, I used to be like you around ten or so years ago. Then I got more into realism and now I find Araki's style really pretty, especially in SBR and JoJolion

TF2 cosplayers were fuckin bros man. They always were a fun and silly bunch. Way more laid back than say, something like Overwatch's fanbase. theres a reason i prefer tf2 anyways, well other than it being fun as shit

My first cosplay was of the TF2 medic and wandering into that hall and hearing hundreds of people crying out 'Medic' was a godsend. I wasn't the only Medic there, But I had a working 'Medigun' aka Flashlight so that was cool. It's in pieces now, But I do want to improve on the backpack.

One Piece Cosplayers tend to be bros as well. I went as Traf law (Out of 3, I had the only grown beard) and I hung out at the teriminal with a bunch of them drinking rum.
As a Homestuck who've recently been traveling a bit more for conventions, I really love my local fandom but it did make me realize that any big (or more specifically, rapidly growing) fandom that does not have some sort of local community management from older, more leveled and experienced fans, will very easily get ugly. Still, even on a grand level I never had any notably bad experiences with HS after 2012.

I'm super not-fond of SU, mostly due to the very prominent presence of an online anti-community, and a lot of local fans tooting about how superior the fandom was to Homestuck (their old main fandom) which, on a local level, was super not true. I'm also incredibly bored by the show itself, and find the designs dull at best and downright ugly at most-of-the-time. On top of that, most of the designs translate incredibly poorly into real life. You'll always have a lot of mediocre and sub-par costumes in fandoms that are that accessible, but when even the top-tier of a fandom can't translate the designs successfully into real life, well, it doesn't make me any more interested in it.

SUs character design is heavily based on the medium in which it exists, i.e. it relies basically entirely on cartoon stylization of body shapes and faces. Making the individual pieces of a Garnet costume isn't TECHNICALLY that hard, but making it actually look like Garnet is much harder.

I'm sorry you feel that way.

>while in costume
Sure, but people who care enough about Disney on a whole as to make multiple costumes from the old movies are people you shouldn't talk to Disney about.

Shorter girls typically look better in lolita. Tall girls can be cute too, unless they're wearing shit that's too short for them.
How does one put a dress on, take a picture, see that their boobs look like this, and think "Perfect, let's post this to Closet of Frills!"?
