/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.

Another thing I noticed, the profile's About Me section displays my full birth date, and won't let me remove it. I can also view other user's birthdays without having them as friends.

I know it's a small thing but really bugs me to have it on display in this age of no privacy. I don't want randoms to see it.
Yeah I'm still debating on the user categories, but it would make finding other people easier.

The name... I couldn't think of anything suitable to be honest.

I'd like to add integration with lolibrary in the future, but I need to talk to them about it.

Sounds reasonable.
Birth date can be considered sensitive identifying data so there should be an option to hide it.

I don't taobao often, so some opinions would be appreciated. I'm trying to get an order in for some wigs before Anime Expo (July 6-8).

Am I crazy/wasting money for trying?
It’s not going to happen, sorry bud. At this point you should just order from amazon with prime or buy from epic (i wouldn’t suggest arda since their shipping always takes 2 weeks for me)

If your shopping service does DHL and is fast as fuck with placing an order/packing the stuff, it's possible. But that's only because DHL is 1-2 days for me.

t. Faggot that had the cosplay shit shipped on July 2nd once, it was $80 for shipping though
Thanks guys! Saved me a headache

I was about to post this because the comment made me lose my shit.
this is a really cute idea

if only the execution had worked out

Otakon 2018 is less than two months away. Unfortunately, someone got a permit to march in Washington to mark the 1st anniversary of the Unite the Right Rally. Belch.

Are you going to Otakon? What are your cosplay plans for Otakon?

should I go to liberty city anime con or otakon? I have enough for a ticket to otakon, but I feel like I should just go for lcac since its much more cheaper
Heres something for you to get even more anxious about. 1 in 4 lolitas are carrying under those frills. almost 40 percent of them are extreme left wing nut cases that will shoot you if they can't destroy you on social media first because you looked at them and they did not like your replica.
Take a look at that car video that the hiefer died from a heart attack, not the actual accident.

Majority of the bodies flying were white. Not your brown skin oppressed toy you use to pretend you are superior to other whites.
Let me add to your growing anxious pile.

Antifa harrassing a Jew because they saw him wearing a maga hat but didn't see what else he was wearing.

Don't deal with Antifa without a camera. They will try to lie even with video evidence.

Conventions over here don't allow wood as a base for large props, but I heard sintra breaks too easily. Is using fiberglass core (like larp weapons) an option? And can you drill holes in it?

Maybe use PVC pipe? Should still be plenty sturdy, even if it feels light

How would I tackle getting a basic design on a morph suit? I'm going for a Katopesla cosplay, but my dumbass was spending so much time focusing on crafting the helmet that I almost entirely forgot about the suit itself. I'm not concerned about the gloves, boot, or belt, but need the giant red P on the chest and the blue pattern on it. The con starts on July 6 (yeah ik im retarded) so I don't think I can use most dye sublimation companies, unless if you anons know any that can print on morph or zentai suits f a s t . Or would it be better to just paint it on myself? Pic related

Then petition your local cons to switch to jury instead of blaming Canadian artists? You also travel out of state to cons but it’s only a problem when someone rlse takes your spot in your home state??? You sound petty as fuck.
It is a jury...
I think the point I’m trying to make is it would be nice if this con that’s held in the United States would prioritize offering spots to people that actually live in the states...
Sure that would be nice but doesn't the defeat the point of a jury? To get the best possible work into their alley as possible? It doesn't matter where you're from then.

Would you be proposing this thought if you were actually making it past your homecon's jury? As a Canadian, I get US artists flooding my best local con's lottery which severely hampers my chances of getting in, period. It would be nice if a chunk of those tables were for locals, yes, but I really don't think I'm entitled to that lmao.
A lot of Americans apply to AN as backup for Fanime and that's basically the only notable anime con in Canada
I suppose this might be a good place to ask.

I want to get a postcard printed for autograph reasons. Which of these services would you recommend or should I just settle for Kinko's?

Strange question but are these prints also lightfast?

I made a thread about historical inspiration for lolita several weeks ago, and it got me thinking: what about also taking inspiration from traditional costumes still worn today, in the germanic or hispanic world, for instance.

Brands sometimes reference those aesthetics, and it seems to be somewhat trendy those days, but i think it can also be nice coording inspiration in general.

no sane person gives a fuck about cultural appropriation unless you're doing something that makes you look retarded

ex: wearing a native headdress because that's the only thing most people think of in association to indigenous folk
First generation or not, I feel like after WWII any American can wear all the dirndls and wooden clogs they want. If my grandparents hadn’t passed they’d probably give it to you themselves.

Yeah, the cultural appropriation thing has really become about cultural isolationism and basically separate but equal.

It’s weird when people who claim to be progressive liberals lose their absolute shit over what is essentially a natural part of globalism and the cultural exchange of a growingly international culture.

The greatest thing about this is even if 90% of people don't give a shit, there will be one moron who will be like "yes but I DO and MY OPINION MATTERS MORE BECAUSE I AM WOKE." Like fuck off.


It is your culture though. Own that culture, and fuck anyone who thinks you're doing otherwise.
Anyone know if there’s any Scottish inspired coords out there somewhere? Not just tartan print, but an earasaid/sash/shawl across the blouse. Someday, I’d love to get a few yards of my clan’s tartan and make a skirt and sash to wear to my local highland games!
No, as someone living in an historic European hotspot, Chinese and their Europe fetish are a pest and they ruin everything.

I find the Dutch con scene cringy so maybe he is the embodiment of the con scene as a whole.
I didn't, I did once and never came back to the shows.
Because every year there is the hope it will be better.
I generally love cosplay contests. Facts, dcc and even Abunai have better presenters.
Animecon is big enough that they can pay for a real presenter. I mean he is currently the face of the cosplay competitions and he is just ruining it.
I don't know anon. Boring standard acts with fake fights, cringy acting or just some walking around the stage and striking a pose or two do a better job at ruining a competition than a host speaking Dunglish. Just stick to catwalks or highlight reels of you don't like traditional cosplay competitions.
I love how most of the people outing their critique about Jeroen here are people who come backstage regularly or even work at Animecon and thus personally know him.

If you have to balls to criticize here, why not say it right in his face? I think he would appreciate that more as well and maybe could change his stage behaviour. Just saying.

Should people particapating in nanchate go for a more realistic vibe with their uniforms? Or is it okay to be costumey as long as its cute?

Where is the best place to get school uniform and school uniform esk clothes?

Should seifukus classify as being apart of nanchate or does their need to be more effort put in to a nanchate coord?.

thoughts on uniqlo? there's one near me that i've never visited but for the cost, I worry it might be sort of cheap..
LOL Eastboy put out bicycles every season also along with their newest uniform collection. This is fairly common with common Seifuku labels Let me find it so I can compare.
Uniqlo has stuff for nanchatte?
Lots of students go there for sweaters and shirts. It's fast fashion, but it's better quality and more versatile than F21.
Hell no lol
Id rather buy the super expensive rilakkuma bike and have it shipped to the US. Im sure it would even be a bit cheaper than buying from them.
Its better to buy a bike from the states with the same color scheme.
