I-is that a small replica? Or is she a huge person? I thought Melty Cream Doughnut already was fatty-friendly.
I'm so tempted to like this comment
and her brother in-law
Her brother and husband both look alike and refuse to smile. It's creepy to see them at meets when everyone else seems to be having a good time. They're just standing around, looking miserable, not dressed in the style. WTF are they fucking there.
Her face looks so out of place in lolita. It doesn't suit her at all. Can't say why, maybe it's because she looks like the ultimate normie.

So this year I was really looking forward to Saboten because it finally seemed like they were finally listening to us anymore for what we want guest wise? I guess they are going for quantity of quality with their guest list. The convention has been around long enough and has enough attendance to get actual Japanese voice actor guests.

Oh well it looks like its going to be the same old same old with Saboten.

Anyways who is all going and what are you going to cosplay?

Your money. Waist it if you want. I won't be going since it's just a repete of last year with a different date.
Eh 55 dollars for the weekend can't be that bad. It can't be worse than some of the cons I have been to. Going off the facebook it looks like the cosplay is activish.
There would be so many being arrested in that group kek.
Anyone here been to cobra arcade bar? Looks like a neat place to go visit during the con if the con room gets crowded
I've been and it's not at all like Endgame was, it's literally just PACKED with ASU tards drinking and playing pinball. I couldn't even order a drink on a fucking Wednesday night because the bar area was too crowded. They don't serve any food and instead direct you to whatever food truck is outside the bar that night. I'd like to emphasize again how fucking crowded this place was on a WEEKDAY NIGHT.

The Maryland Renaissance Festival opened up last weekend. Who went/plans to go? What will you wear?

Apart from Maryland anons, general discussion about Renaissance Festivals, costuming, and autistic elitism goes here.

Questions to get started:

>Do you think non-Renaissance costumes (i.e. Cosplay, faeries, lolita/Jfash) belong?

>Cider vs Ale?

>Should you include an accent with your costume?

>Cringiest thing you've seen at a RenFest?

Self post some of your costumes too if you want.

Is the MD one worth going to? It's only like 4h away so that's not so bad I guess

>Do you think non-Renaissance costumes (i.e. Cosplay, faeries, lolita/Jfash) belong?
Cosplay no, faeries/lolita sure. Other jfash probably not? I could see something like mori fitting in pretty well

>Cider vs Ale?
Ale not close

>Should you include an accent with your costume?
As cringy as it is I do generally do this

>Cringiest thing you've seen at a RenFest?
There are fratbros chasing each other around with wooden swords and people cosplaying star trek/other scifi at every renfaire, but it's still cringy every time I see it.

Took my kids to GA's RenFaire last year and IMO is not worth going anymore, all the kiddie rides are crazy expensive, $2 for sliding down the spiral slide or $5 to ride the jousting zip line thing. If they had a bracelet for all access for kids then I would take them.
Last year I completely overhauled my Ren Faire garb to make it more accurate. I decided to make a late 16th century Italian kirtle. I need to make a matching camicia and partlet but I got compliments from the workers last year even with my lame chemise. Unfortunately I got no pictures of it.

Most of the friends I go with are fine with bodices and corsets with pirate blouses but I can't do it anymore. I need historical accuracy dammit!

I'm not a fan of non-Renaissance costumes, but I know everyone just wants a chance to dress up, so I'd never say anything to anyone else. Not sure why'd you wear j-fash to Faires, its very dirty at all the ones I go to.
It's good but driving 4 hours isn't worth it if there are closer ones nearby.

Anybody going to Castrum Cantatas this weekend?

Hosted by Shire Coill Fhionnabhann of Kingdom Abhann. Sept. 1st through 5th over in Lafe, Arkansas.

I've only been to a few events and this is the largest one I'm attending yet.

I'm attending Feasts, so my dinners are taken care of- but does anyone have any advice for breakfast/lunches/snacks without the use of cooking?

She looks like a background character from hey arnold.
This exactly. The dress isn't lolita, it's an old school Boz gothic nun dress, which has been badly styled. Getting a petti to fit it would be tricky as its a very short dress, but not impossible. It doesn't need much poof, just something to balance the outfit more. The socks don't quite work, imo, especially as the dress is more of a yellowish Ivory than pale cream irl. The headdress definitely doesn't work, especially with her hair, and it doesn't work with the dress. It's a lovely dress, but not the easiest to style well. I can see her ideas, but the execution needs work.
Not the one who originally posted this girl, but she really is a mess. Wanted to see her original hair color, went to her profile, got her mother without pants, and this monstrosity
Wine mom Lolita?
This actually looked even worse irl. My pick for worst of the weekend. When will people learn that putting on black lipstick does not make your attempt at goth makeup work

Is it just the velvet bow for the neck? Imo, that's easily replaceable, it's literally just a velvet bow. It's even on other pieces, I'd just borrow if from another AP fall item that has one if it were in my closet. But really the seller should have sent that, why did they keep it? Did they lose it?
Next time you should probably check lolibrary before making an ass of yourself.
Lolibrary is down and that's what google has. I only see a velvet bow via google images, but way to be an ass yourself anon. With no pics provided by OP, I can only assume that the celestial op brought up by google is correct. But you could maybe try being a little helpful yourself next time?

those Gorillaz figures tho
K what I think would really help is if you put some shelves or even a cabinet above your desk to put all those sewing boxes, then have all 3 large shelves in a row instead of being so broken up.

The first thing I notice isn't the storage unit, it's the gap between it and the other shelves on either side of it. If you can't remove the top that's jutting out, so that the shelves can be moved seamlessly together, make a filler piece that you can stuff into the gap between the shelves to cover that up at least.

The plain white bookcases looks like you're cramming as many cheap plastic toys as you can in here (I know you love your dolls though). It needs some artistic touches in here to bring the playroom idea across. Add some decorations so the white bookshelves aren't so white, like wallpaper the inside of the shelves (or go the full hog, make diorama wallpapers inside the shelves and wallpaper the outside of the shelves with brick patterns to turn them into doll apartment complexes). Under the wall shelf, add a bunting with some playful catchphrase (eg "I D O L L S ")

For visual decluttering, other than the table skirt, consider covering all bottom two shelves -- a curtain on a tension rod inside the bookshelves, stick the curtains to the shelves themselves, or use solid boxes to keep your toys in. If you don't need all the figures to be out in the open all the time, maybe put half in boxes and rotate them seasonally.

For the colour scheme, black is pretty heavy colour and this is a rather small room, so keep it minimal. Keep most of your additions pink and white, then add just a touch of black, for eg a black ribbon/piping on the hem of the tableskirt/futon.

A bit of a personal note. If this were my room I'd put the desk where the storage shelf is, facing the TV. Then move the display shelf that's next to the window to where the sewing desk was, and move the storage shelf next to the window. This way the three bookshelves can be lined up uniformly and the storage unit can be its own thing while not getting in the way. I like watching tv while sewing though, I guess if your layout works for you then it's better to stick to it.
I'm trying to reduce to just 1 sewing box (the colorful one). The top desk shelf is acrylic paint which I was thinking about displaying like pic related. The extra two boxes can probably be moved to the closet, now that I think about it. (Though, space is at a premium there) I also want to paint the cosplay award and bulletin board frames white.

As far as the shelves, I could switch the large one on right with the desk, or possibly the small shelf with storage by moving the shelf (pita) but I'm unsure if that makes it feel bigger or not? This is the fourth place I've had the desk.

The gap is a good point-out, I'm hoping that the skirt will cover that. the taller part is because otherwise the blue parlor doesn't fit- it's too wide. Making them flush would mean eliminating one of the pieces

I'm actually having a problem with my short dog knocking off all the toys on the bottom shelves to hide her toys under them which is a huge pain. I need 4 more sets of risers.

I think what I'm going to do is add a mounted white shelf for the monster high above the futon (or maybe 2 small ones, staggered, I have enough MH in storage) moving the top shelf up and possibility eliminating some of the things on that shelf to reduce clutter. Then the second area (with the bjds) will become more of a diorama again. I think any background behind something like the ponies would be far too much clutter.

I think I'm going to talk the bf into helping me move things around again and think about it. I can't figure out how to have the desk face the TV, it has to be anchored against a wall because sticking out from the wall takes up way too much space. So whether it's back to the TV or side to the TV, either one will be less than optimal.

I really wish I had a better way to store the pokemon plush (bottom shelf) which look pretty awful at the moment, but I don't know that there's any good way to display those. Also- I have no room for a hammock, no corners.

Just a few more ideas for you to bounce around:

You can look into mounting the sewing table on wheels, or replacing it with an office table with wheels, then you would be able to wheel it out when you need it, and flush against the wall when you don't. The carpet and the weight of the table alone should be enough friction that the table doesn't move around while you sew, but you might have issues moving the table around, or need to stick corner bumpers so you don't end up gauging a hole in the wall/furniture when you push it around. Any way, just another idea for you to consider when you're trying to rearrange the room.

For the shelf with the ponies, you can spray paint the insides light pink. It won't add a whole lot of visual clutter since it's just one single colour, but will add more playfulness to the stark white bookshelves.

For the pokemon plushies, if you can spare some wall space (or even the ceiling, if you can reach...), you can hang up some cargo netting, then slot the plushies in between the netting. Alternatively, you can hang up one of those hanging wardrobe organisers and stuff them with plushies. Doesn't exactly need a corner for a hammock, does need either a wall, or some way to reach the ceiling.

No idea about the dog, though she sounds cute.

Look in the archives.
I think she left lolita and only does cosplay now.
That's an odd conclusion to jump to. It depends on the character: You can cosplay anyone you want regardless of body type etc. etc. etc. but if you're going for accuracy, you have options even if you're not muscular and don't intend to get fit for cosplay. You should wear appropriate makeup and a wig regardless, though.

I'm looking for a specific kind of white button down shirt. It looks pretty thick(?), but it's clearly not a regular dress shirt. What am I looking for/where to buy one?


Pic rel
Probably a really derp question, but I have a jacket I want to add lining to and then a bias trim along the edge of the lapels and the sides. Do I line it first and then add the trim? Or use the raw edge and add the bias trim?

If you mean young and old Joseph then yeah, they were great!
There was some girl who had a great cosplay of one of the later part charaters (6 or 7.)
Did you cosplay anything? Did you go to the 2D thing?
Maybe they should.
I've seen enough cruddy centers with poor layouts, leftover litter, and shabby, 70s era decorum to know they could do better.
There was some incident a year ago or something like that where the con area wasn't able to hold all the congoers and some were left outside.
Also the con is allegedly too far for some people and they whined about it
I have a mighty need to see Israeli cons/cosplay! Holy shit.
I got you then. I'll gather you some photos and vids but basically the same as all cons just much smaller, and some of the cosplayers aren't as good since most of us don't have access to cheap 3d printing and such

Wig or real, curly or straight, let's celebrate the teased, the back-combed, the frizzy, the woolly, and the unruly.
