/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.

Polaris from X-Day. A two-shot manga from 2002; her style is very fitting for the time-period she's from.

I wouldn't feel to bad. My oldest brother and I both didn't get married until after we hit 25. There's no point in feeling rushed to big life changes likes triage and kids. I'm 29 and just now pregnant with my first child. I think my brother was 27 or so when his wife got pregnant(he's 8 years older then me)

I'm glad I waited because it gave me more time to mellow out, mature, and get my life a little more together.

Just go at your own pace and don't feel the need to rush. I was actually the first of my friends to get married and my closer friends are in long term relationships. Everybody just has their own pace they go out. You'll eventually find your own.

Also, not really Lolita related, but a coworker saw me in the maturity uniform, and asked me if the baby's father is in the picture. I asked my friends and we all agreed that it was a pretty awkward question to ask. Especially since I was wearing my wedding ring. Apparently she thought I was in my early 20's and made an assumption that I was single or something.
Duh fuck, I meant marriage.
>tfw active in my city's music scene. Love metal.
>tfw trashy metal/rockabilly/goth chicks always give me shit.

On the upside, guys don't give a shit and I'm good friends with a lot of local bands. But.. I still just want a nice lady friend to go to gigs with.
Where do you live, anon? I know your pain.
Brisbane, Australia.

You'd think that with the huge variations in alt clothing, people would be a bit more open-minded.

eww somehow i expected so much better...
not with that man jaw.

holy shit I never made the connection between lalaloopsie and coraline's button eyes.
brb collecting every figurine

that's the motherfuckers who did the eevee print, right?
knew she was ita as soon as she put pokemon on a fucking dress.
it's like the equivalent of that one girl who made JSKs with superhero-themed fabric except slightly weebier.
...did she put blush on her nose? what the hell is this red spot? is she trying to imitate tumblr fanart or something?
that's a pretty weird opinion, anon. Most people that bleach or dye their hair also don't make their eyebrows match and it usually looks fine. Should people who dye their pink have pink eyebrows all the time? Like it can look neat sometimes but really...
i dye my hair all sorts of colors and my eyebrows always match...

Here it is. I just got home.
Did you do the straps on the boots? Looks good. I'm very happy you made the chest protector an obvious separate piece.

I don't want to sound like a dumbass, but is that a wig or your actual hair? You are very pretty btw.
What's even worse is that it was a fan panel. I saw it for a brief second through the doors.

Finally was able to finish up Riven for PAX! Proud of my sword though it isn't much but it's my first foray into big props and did it a couple days like the procrastinator I am. Really Wish I could get not hall photos soon...
/sorry in advance for the 20 questions/
Did you make a mold of your face to create that mask? What did you use? (plaster of paris?)
what was your process of sculpting the prosthetic (what clay, release agents, ect.)
and what did you use to create the actual mold of the prosthetic? (what brand, release agent, length of time it took, how you locked the two molds together after)
and what material did you make it out of? Latex? what did you use to apply/take it off
What did you use to paint? Airbrush?
(links to helpful sources welcome, I really need to learn how to do this for a cosplay im planning)
thanks in advance
haven't cosplayed in awhile but...

What's the weirdest thing your cosplay has been mistaken for?
21 posts and 3 image replies omitted. Click here to view.
Eh she shows up late enough in the series that a lot of the Saturday morning cartoon viewers have stopped watching before she even showed up. And dont forget the tumblr fueled fanbase for RotG made up of 13 year olds. Makes me sad though, YGO needs more love.
About 5 years ago I cosplayed as a scout from TF2. This older guy walked up to me and asked if I was "some kind of a Girl Scout or something". I told him "no" and walked away. I got about 20 yards away from him before I realized that, technically, he was right.
I went to a comic convention as John Constantine from Hellblazer, people still asked me if I was Castiel or the Doctor. I can understand Castiel slightly more, considering they literally wear the same trench coat, because the creator of Supernatural was obsessed with Hellblazer, but the Doctor Who one just upset me. Those coats look nothing alike, and Constantine is blonde. But I guess people are so used to shit tier "let me just throw on any trench coat and any color of converse and say I'm the Doctor" cosplays that they don't even know the difference anymore?
Cosplaying Sailor Moon, got asked if I was Lady Gaga
Sorry my joke detection abilities are kinda poor sometimes. But forreal, unless you lived in the middle of nowhere, finding a con without homestucks would be like a miracle

Puns are super effective on me though, hah.

Your dad comes up to you and says

>"Anon, I don't want you cosplaying anymore. I don't like it."

What do you say?

some dude once pointed at my friend when she was in cosplay and we were both walking to a con, and said "look! its a walking example of Daddy issues!" to his buddy.
his mother came out of the car parked next to me and scolded him.
no ring on her finger.

(was really temped to say "yeah, I'm looking at it right now)
I'm 90% sure people who use this insult have issues themselves, and who the fuck doesn't have daddy issues, the world is fucked up man.

specifically, "the tick" cosplay.

"Oh my god what the fuck, I thought you died!!!"

How do others feel when you see a Lolita outfit that someone made/did which is a really nice concept but then you read the description and see something crazy in the notes. Picture attached is something I loved the choice of fabrics and cut until I read "Victorian Holiday Barbie Lolita".....uhh huh?

She took the design of the Victorian Holiday Barbie and made it into a lolita dress.
Ah would make sense if they had said that instead of it saying this x style of Lolita which is what was happened there

Just leaving this here...
...Suburban Soccer-Mom Elsa?
She's supposed to be a mental patient. It's from a yuri fanfic.
>sharkrobot prices
Jeez no con discount? If you spend over $60 at the con you may as well just order online since it's free shipping after that with a possible discount. Or $75, I think.

Hans looks pretty cute though.

How do I get a girlfriend who is into cosplay?

It's possible but it isn't the easiest thing to find
Aim for girls that are average looking. Go to panels for the series and games you like. Avoid girls who are cross playing yaoiboiz, they might try to drag you in.
Its possible but it will take some searching but try your best to stick to your standards. One of my friends was like "Omg dating a Cosplay girl with big tits." Yeah great buddy, but she's 5' 1" and 180 lbs, with the personality of a spoiled toddler and the face of (book) Dolores Umbridge.
I'd offer to date you but I'm fat
Don't sell yourself too short because you're fat. An ex of mine was cute but so bony it hurt to cuddle with him. Now dating cuddly guy with fluffy beard and its awesome.

Are you sure that your iron has a large enough barrel?

Maybe a large barrel waving iron, pic related. Use it for the whole of your hair, then spread out/fluff the waves to look more natural then curl the ends with a similar size curling iron.
Shit, that's sad.
I think their publisher went bankrupt but they're looking for a new one to keep the magazine going so hope is not lost.
Anyone else here do tanning salons?

I just had my fourth visit today and I'm up to 15 minutes in the regular beds. My back is so red that it's ridiculous. I don't see how anyone can go naked in a tanning bed because your ass will get fried, literally. I got laughed at because I wear swimsuit bottoms but at least my bits aren't roasted.
