It's a month away. I've probably seen more discussion about Shuto Con the past year here than I ever have before lol. Anyone still planning on going? What are you looking forward to?

Oh that reminds me of the last time I went, 2 years ago I think. I was going into the game room and a staff (a shutocon staff, not a rent-a-cop, grabbed my badge off my chest to inspect it up close. Most cons might ask you to flip it, but they won't just grab the laynard that is hanging from your neck and bump into your tits with the back of their hand.

I complained in the fb group and all I got was excuses for why their behavior was fine.
Yeah shuto was pretty much over for me when I overheard a staffer telling another to use whatever force and rudeness they felt was necessary to keep traffic moving in the skywalk, including "don't be afraid to yell or push". Like um wow good to kow this is what you teach your people.
She couldn't just call it a moving sale. She had to bring her divorce in to it. What a pathetic loser.
Her asspat army will buy some. No way in hell anyone else is going to buy those ugly plush.
It's because she has no other income. I overheard her at Matsuri talking about her financial issues. Shuto is funding everything in her life. Including her divorce from what I heard.

How is it bait? People are constantly on here trying to defend that nickname because they're either closet racists or too stupid to understand.

See >>9820755 who makes the same point I am.

I just get so confused when they claim it's not racist. Like who are you trying to prove to on this thai basket weaving board that you're not racist. Who cares.
What perks do you expect in a VIP bag for a lolita meet and greet tea party?
Postcards like stuff and small accesories like brooches. I don’t have high expectations.
> makes comment about racist
> makes a racist comment as rebuttal.

Mmmmmh I love how this board thinks.

15 days!

The schedule's been posted. A discord exists. Tea party tickets have been sold out. No model news.

I’d be down as well!
AP's was at the Sheraton

Yeah, they switched it to that hotel because the roof collapsed at the other place they booked. It was a different con hotel restaurant though, not an actual tea place.
I'm in. Here is a throwaway email!
The lobby of the convention center has a little cafe in it and that's where the meets have always happened.

You know the drill.

Probably not. I had the exact same worry last year when they had PuffyAmiYumi tickets and I couldn't go pick one up til like, 11 or noon but my friends and I were still able to get em just fine. I probably wouldn't wait much later than that just to be safe, though.
Not really.
Sweet Mildred, an indie seller, vends there and she sometimes sells secondhand brand. There's also Alix's Cosplay which despite the name sells second hand lolita both indie and brand but is has a bit of a mark up.
Other than that you're out of luck. AB has never had a big jfashion presence and likely never will.
Honestly as a local lolita here I think you're better off expanding your wardrobe online and using AB just to pick up accessories from the booth. Unless you're confident enough to spot scalper prices vs. reasonable.
>a bit of a mark up
understatement of the century
Are the times for guest panels not revealed until the program is released? I would like to see Kaoru Wada but Friday might be the only day I would be able to be in Boston.

Now I found this and I want to know how the hell she's wearing that thing, or if it's just Photoshop magic.

Dragging on the floor is fine desu, it's more about not murdering my hips after all day wear. I have to incorporate it into a bikini, pic semi-related. I would probably make it just long enough to not touch the ground but I want it to be as voluminous and fluffy as possible.

That sounds like a pain to install and I feel like the boning would end up bending and breaking?

Yes great idea

Ooh that's pretty smart? I was wondering if I could incorporate balloons somehow but this is way better.
fake tan
Spray tan.
ever since i read that banana comment above i can’t help but think it’s an inflatable banana in there..
but yeah idk
It looks like it's starting around the back of her top, maybe it's fastened there? Or yeah, photoshop magic.

Hey /cgl/!

I know there's a decent population here that attends mid-west anime cons, and we had a decent turnout at the /cgl/ meet at Naka '17 this past March, so who's ready for another?

Naka-Kon is March 16-18 and so far Steve Blum, Sean Chiplock, and Ian Sinclair are some of the guests attached.

Who /hype/ here?

>>9821631 NO WAY! I have a huge crush on Onua and its nice a girl won an FGC thing. I am excited to hop back into SMASH5...meeyups and all hopefully
I just want to say that the karaoke contest was fucking great. 90% of the people getting up there had awesome voices and I was pleased I decided to brave the cold to go see it that early.
The Kagome in the wheelchair though: what the fuck. I'll never understand people who half-ass stuff like that.

Also Cypri in the vendor room, your art is amazing.
It'll never happen

Was directed here from /ic/.

Some people told me they need few keychains to be made with my pictures. But they need this specific type of keychains.
I mean - transparent plastic and picture visible.
How these being made? Is there some printing service that simply prints it?
I keep seeing such transparent plastic-keychains being sold by artists but i have no idea if these are handmade or ....??
I've been wondering, too, only places I found sell starting at 100pieces.
Not sure how expensive they are, but Zap Creatives does singles & packs of 50. I'd search the Artist Alley Network International group on FB.
You can quite easily hand make these with plastic and sharpies if you can draw well. I think some people call them “Shrinkies” a quick google search of “how to make Shrinkies” will bring up a fair few YouTube tutorials.
Next time this kind of question should probably go in one of the help threads though!
Go to the AA thread, they do shit like this
OP's image is not shrinky dink, it's printed-on plastic sandwiched between acrylic. But yes, OP should have lurked because this is stickied in the AA thread.

Alternatively, just look up "acrylic charms" and voila.

Do you have any?

For sweet lolita, you mean? Supposedly taobao has resources for that, but I'll readily admit I don't really know which brands to direct you to. Looking in the taobao thread might help, I'm sure some gulls have bought cute shoes there.
Alternatively, I'm pretty sure that pic related is still available on Katie's webstore; if you have the funds to spare, I think these would be very cute with lolita.
Uhg these are so ridiculously cute. 39k yen is so hard to swallow though.
Goatskin leather and made in Japan? Sign me up. I appreciate the recommendation anon.
God these are cute but that price tag.... maybe one day.

Would people actually want a shopping list they can just toss into the OP?
nah, not really. I mean first of all, the shops changes all the time so someone would have to keep it up to date which won't happen.
Secondly people doesn't want a general shop list. They want to know where to buy the SPECIFIC things they want. And for that no list will be good, asking and getting an answer may or may not with an explanation will be always better
I tried to make a pastebin link like the other generals have for shopping larp gear, but when it comes to larp shops and craftsmen, they are all inconsistent when it comes to service and quality of their goods, and that frequently changes over time as well. Shops like Mytholon rely on 50+ different manufacturers to fill out their shelves, so materials/quality control/craftsmanship differs a lot, and shops that make all their goods in house usually have a swing in their general execution over time when their staffing or supplies changes.

And then you have the issue of general interest in this thread, most people here are already fully equipped for 2-4 genres/characters or they make most of their stuff by themselves.
Ah, cheers on giving it a go though. Doing God's work for the community by atleast trying haha.
And the problem HLF and you bring up seems to make sense. I mean I got my favorites though, Goldhammer and Irregular Props have been giving me great stuff all the time.

And LARP armour wise it would be great if we could get more LARPers to stop buying LARP plate if you catch my drift. I mean I got a set, and it's not too bad and yet I really wish I spent my money differently. Same goes for my chainmaille which I could've gotten with good rings and mediocore quality from India for a little more.

It's just these things that I want to spare other LARPers.
