Since the last one had a few bits of Dota sprinkled through it we may as well group all of the ARTS games together to hopefully keep things maybe slightly more active.

try to stick to 3 colors only. thats my best advice besides what others have said.
actually don't get pettis from bodyline, their pettis are garbage
>People aren’t paying $40 just for brand name on their bracelet, burando is charging $40 because they make good shit.
Okay I agree with you on everything else but let's not pretend like brand jewelry is anything other than cheap plastic trash.
They have one massive tulle one that is actually pretty good. Pricey compared to the rest, but not bad.

They make metal jewellery as well, but AP plastic is specifically what I had in mind. So many newbies make the mistake that they can sub in children's jewellery because apparently plastic jewellery stops their brain from picking up all the differences between good plastic jewellery and bad, and then they end up looking like crap because kid's jewellery is often sized smaller, the silver backings are often badly placed and show way more than the candy-coloured jewellery does, and the jewellery is usually crudely finished and isn't as nice and as smoothly as AP jewellery.

Try to find an actual replacement, or make your own some time. It's really not that easy to get that perfect balance of something perfectly sized, beautifully finished, perfectly matching colours, perfect kawaii dreamy toy aesthetic, and this isn't even considering matching it perfectly to your dress motifs.

I love Phos! Your layout is super adorable anon!
Oh no! Would you be able to make some embellishments that would match that charm?

I really like the different colours in the bottom one, would thematically match with how fragmented Phos is too.

I really like manga colors for SBR and really dislike most variations on it (I could go on about why white and blue Johnny is stupid compared to blue with purple stars).

I wanted to order this, but I was thinking about maybe painting over the buttons and balls from teal to green. Do you think it's possible? What should I use to not fuck up rest of costume and block paint from dripping?

Why do cons don't try with their mascots and promotional flyers. Even today there are still very bad flyers and posters around.

dating in lolita? would any of you date someone who wears lolita, or alternatively how does your s/o feel about you wearing lolita?
242 replies and 30 images omitted. Click here to view.
you sound like a super autismo
are you really trying to change what you said because you got called out? Also you're really this upset by getting called a normie?
To weigh in on the opposite perspective: I'm a lolita myself and would be happy to date another lolita, or a cosplayer. Cynicism aside, I think that cosplay is an art form and those that work hard to bring their favorite characters to life are admirable, so I can definitely appreciate the effort and skills required to doing something like this. If the cosplayer in question happens to cosplay my husbandos it's a bonus but not a requirement; so long as my date respects my decision to wear lolita as a daily fashion and doesn't expect me to be into some bizarre fetishes, we should get along just fine.
I used to date a girl who was both into lolita and larping. She was more into me than the other way around at the time, and I broke up with her 8 months later because I was an introvert addicted to video games and the whole "not getting muh vidya play time cuz gf wants 2 cuddle" thing was making me anxious. To be honest she was super controlling to the point she made me a schedule for my whole month (including work) at some point.

Still, despite her being pretty chubby, she was still wearing coords pretty nicely. This and her coming to larps I went to pretty much carried the whole relationship for the whole 8 months. She quit both larping and lolita to focus on her studies after the breakup, so I can't help but feel bad about it. And honestly, if this relationship had been 8 years later I'd quite possibly be still with her.
I'm really not sure what my bf thinks about me wearing lolita. He's pretty much a normie in dress, and before lolita I was super western goth, but got into lolita before getting together with him. We have an ldr though, sometimes I feel like a weirdo compared to him but I think he likes it. Every time I show him pics of my outfits he says I'm cute or pretty, etc.

So I'm going into the military and now that I'll be able to have money and a car I want to go to more conventions, only been to one. However I'm a bit worried about them finding out my shit, I am a dude and I don't know how common it would be to have costumes just hanging in my closet. I know that people do room searches and I don't want to be embarrassed.

i'm going to make a /cgl/ knowyourmeme page since other boards have one. What should I include?
>he got his lovely legs from running in mountains barefoot
now, that's autism for me

don't you have a privat home, to keep your costumes there
either way, have never been in the military myself, but worst what could happen is, that you have to wear it in front of your comrades
or another comrade takes them, and wears them
lose the zero get with the hero, cunt.

Ask for and post pics of items worn.

I am new to cosplay, and i wanted to ask a question. What do you think about cosplays of book characters that never had a real visual adaptation? I wanted to do X from the night land, but i don't want to look like an idiot if everyone thinks that this is dumb.

It ultimately comes down to execution and being accepting that it's very unlikely you'll get recognized by randos at a con, but I already easily don't recognize at least half of the source materials at cons.
oh, and the blonde woman above is apparently the author, so if you ever get to meet the author of your source material, that'll make for a nice encounter.

Depending on what you need you're probably better off shopping at cosplayclues or poly-props. Both commonly do sales (cosplayclues currently has a 15% off sale but theres only a few days left)
Those people are such try-hard-wannebe-pro- photographers it's sad.
