I want to buy circle lenses for the first time, but I'm nervous. For anyone who's done this before, which website do you order from and are there any brands you recommend to wear daily? I'm worried about the horror stories of getting ripped off or lenses making people's eyes get scratched etc.

Try to find ones that are US FDA approved or KFDA (korean FDA) approved. I like Geo personally.

>Toohoo cosplays in the west are still mostly shitty crossdressing memes

What do?

Also, pic related, wanting to do a Yukari cosplay (Immaterial and Missing Power outfit) but torn on how to make the dress super puffy and long like it is in the sprite, thinking of either a cage crinoline and petticoat or just loads of petticoat layers (leaning toward no hoops and just a petticoat because of how flowy it seems to be in the game, and also how it looks in TH8). Suggestions/opinions would be very helpful since I don't want to spend a fortune on undergarments in organza/tulle.

I did remind you of this event. There was an idol group in last showing, but they rotate and new bands/groups are brought in. I think their gonna have another show right before Anime North next year.

Are both correct... definitely sounds like someone was just being a sore loser. Unless they have evidence of someone claiming they made something when they didn't?

Me and my bf are planning a trip to Japan (specifically Tokyo) and we need help picking out places to see. We already have some places in mind to check out (like Takeshita St, Akihabara, etc.), but suggestions would be wonderful. I'm interested in lolita fashion, magical girl anime (specifically Sailor Moon), themed cafes, Sanrio and San-x, J-pop and just cute places in general. My boyfriend likes videogames, Square Enix, shonen anime (he really likes JJBA too), card games like Yu-gi-oh!, and arcade games. We're both into Nintendo, Pokemon, traditional foods and places, and we would like to try or buy yukatas.

>Good places to eat that are not tourist traps (other than themed cafes)
>Cute themed cafes
>Good places to buy collector's items and goods
>Is Tokyo Disney worth it if you've already been to WDW and DL??
>Different areas of Tokyo and what to do in each
>Good places to see related to our hobbies
>Should we check out other cities? (Kyoto, etc)

Any suggestions are good, thank you!

Forgot to add, but isn't Air Canada to Japan kinda shit?
>>
>>9661565

This is the last of the cities included:
Boston (BOS) - $549
Charlotte (CLT) - $549
Chicago (ORD) - $549
Dallas (DFW) - $549
Miami (MIA) - $549
Philadelphia (PHL) - $549
Phoenix (PHX) - $549
San Diego (SAN) - $549

If you can get to one of those airports you can save a bundle. But I just looked and from DC, you can book one for $734 if you go to Haneda which is still a good deal since flights are normally 1,000 - 1,400

Plug in the details you want to google flights and tell it to alert you for fare changes. That way you can keep an eye on the prices.

Oh and nope, Air Canada was very nice. I enjoyed the trip. AC has a sister service called Air Canada Rouge that seems to be their pleasure airline which is more comfy than usual.
Also everyone was like bilingual and sometimes trilingual. The staff spoke English, French, and Japanese.

I had my own screen interface to watch movies, and the food was good.
Inside North America you had to pay for snacks but it was NBD. The flight from Vancouver to Osaka all meals came in the ticket and they fed us a LOT since it's a long flight.

Had a full hot meal, a snack, drinks, and a hot snack, and more drinks.

I watched movies/TV and napped.
>>
>>9661565
Whenever possible, try to book a flight to and from Haneda versus Narita. Simple reason is cause it's a lot closer to the city center, so you save time/money traveling to the airport.

I have one of their longswords. Handles really well. It's a shame the the tip is shit. Already broke two of it, both times they repleaced it and second time it was with an upgraded 2.0 tip protection. Will see how long it will take until that one fails. (I really hope they upgrade the tip even further because I really love the overakl design and handling)

Also scabbard still looks weird as fuck. Probably because it's larp grade and a one point design

Looking to make a cosplay of a character with a sleeveless chainmail shirt. I don't fancy getting an actual chainmail shirt due to a) the price and b) having to walk round in heavy armour all day. Is there some sort of alternate I could use? Either material that looks like chainmail, or some kind of lighter mail.

Low-budget fantasy movies usually use rough wool sweaters spray-painted silver. Only works if it's not supposed to be a centerpiece in full view, though.

what's a cosplay you've always wanted to do but for one reason or another never did?

I always wanted to cosplay Anarchy panty but was always too self conscious before now to do it. I've lost about 80 lbs this past year and finally feel like I could do it.

Any advice on figuring out when a cartridge razor is starting to blunt? I've always shaved my face with an electric one so I haven't had to deal with this sort of thing before.

Razors blunt the second it cuts a hair. Wise to just buy disposable shit.

>>9659590
What style do you wear? I remember seeing a video where someone used the Too Faced Boudoir Eyes palette or something similar for a sweet/classic look, so Too Faced might be a good brand to look into.

Basically you want to look for a palette with some lighter peachy and pink shades with small bits of shimmer and some more neutral shades of brown and pink. You might be able to get away with a small palette with 4 to 5 shades from Majorica or Canmake even (pic related.

I'm really good about washing my face and keeping it moisturized. I don't over-exfoliate, I drink plenty of water, and the only breakouts I get are around my monthly cycle. I've basically found what I think is a good routine for my skin.
Still, every damn time I go to put on makeup I have flaky bits of skin that make me look like a cakey mess even with minimal foundation. It's not insanely noticeable unless you're close up but it's really annoying and ugly to me. My skin looks fine before makeup but no matter how I apply it (I've tried brushes, beauty blenders, fingers, puffs, sponges etc) it. just. keeps. being. flaky. I've even tried adding an extra exfoliating day to my routine but that just made my skin irritated! Any advice?

Also while I'm asking for help: Does anyone have any tips for doing makeup specifically for taking photos of yourself? I'm trying to get really into Instagram lately but I'm a complete noob at modeling and photoshopping. Figured the whole thing would be easier if I just look better on camera in general (I'm unfortunately a little unphotogenic).
>>
>>9659938
It's the type of foundation/makeup you're using. If you have dry skin, you have to use makeup for dry skin. Most foundations that aren't heavy are aimed for oily skin.

Another thing to remember is to let your moisturizer dry before putting on makeup, as that will cause it to flake.

As for being photogenic, you have to find a good angle, pose, and hairstyle for yourself. And, try to look more comfortable. If you're uncomfortable, it'll show in the picture.

A thread to post your stupid questions. For Jfashion and Cosplay.


Starting off: I want 2 items from a store that sells wholesale lots, and the 2 items are from a 60 piece lot. Do you think they'll sell them to me separately if I get my SS to send them a message, or am I going to have to buy the whole thing?
>>
>>9660828
You'll probably have to buy the whole thing.
>>
>>9660831
Ugh, thought so. I can't imagine how much that'll cost in shipping. Thanks for answering.
>>
>>9660838
You can always sell what you don't want after, depending on what it is (like if it's something to do with itabags or something). It's quite a bit of work, but at the very least, you should be able to make your money back
