Let's talk about the the best shopping services for buying from Japanese sites - who is a good SS for buying from fril and mercari and other auction sites? Any good/bad experiences with shopping services? Who has the best fee rates? Discuss who your go to SS is in this thread gulls.

If you're running a service just for fun, and not thinking about most of those things, you're probably not very good at it.

From Japan is dumb. Ordered & paid for item that was supposed to go on sale on the 15th but when From Japan went to buy it, it was sold out (because they tried buying the item on the 14th). The product page clearly states that the sale will begin on the 15th. They refunded me and I requested the same item again to be bought. Ugh.
>>
>>9721082
Those people are probably going to do some sort of exchange or temporary teaching job, their SS isn't the deciding factor on where they're going to live and they won't be able to register as a legit business. For storage you need like 1 cupboard. Taxes you only pay if you have a business that makes enough money and if you are not there on a student or tourist visa.

People are just weird, and when they're young they're even weirder.
>>
>>9721383

Completionists...honestly don't make much sense to me - it's the same with Love Live. With such a big cast I can't see someone honestly loving every single character enough to invest so much money in cosplaying them - and often they'll be seen bagging out their lower tier characters. I don't know if it's something they do for bragging rights (because honestly, you see it with Love Livers doing collages of them wearing a wig for every character and not actually investing in full costumes, they'll just shove more than half in the identical school uniform they share).

That being said, it's a strong enough story for all characters to make an impact, but I can't realistically see people doing it for what I -personally- see as the right reasons to cosplay a character. But that isn't the same for everybody.

In all honesty its not your place to say what makes a wholesome cosplay experience. Sure, making your own and going through the motions of cocking it up and finally getting it right might be your personal preference to what makes cosplay what it is, but it isn't the case for everybody.

I have a friend who used to make all of hers, and then gradually wound down to buying a few. It's mostly because of work and other stuff, and then shes gone back even further to only making like one a year because again, work, getting her own place, better job offers etc. Once she's figured that out she'll be back on all cylinders.
She's tried a bunch of different approaches to cosplay but I wouldn't say one is worth less than the others. She still had fun and wasn't stressed out or tired at the cons trying to do the impossible. It might be the same for other people and they might want to enjoy it without the time constraints, stress etc. Maybe they just don't enjoy the making aspect and enjoy just having their picture taken as their favourite characters?

Different folks, different strokes.

Maybe, I read somewhere that asian hair is typically a rounder thicker follicle however with less hair per square inch, I mean that has got to help keep a sense of fullness without getting tangled. I wonder what specific hair products are good for that. I hear they may use a sort of hair wax lightly on the tips to keep its shape?

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.

>i really dont want this thread to die
I really want to attempt to cosplay Cyberpunk Zoe, but I'm clueless as to how I would make the wig work without it being five bajillion pounds. Does anyone have any suggestions? I was thinking maybe incorporating some type of ribbon for the green things, but I feel like that would look so bad..

>i really dont want this thread to die too
I was gonna let it die but now that there's another anon with a common interest between the both of us, it'd be silly to let it.
As for that Zoe wig...take Sona wig suggestions and hope they work on something longer than Sona's hair length? Should be haram to go longer than that desu yet Riot did.

If you don't have fun doing LARP, and you don't feel you're getting into the LARPs you'd see as fun... then stop.

If you're advancing into the groups you want to advance into then just go on. Really, all you got to do is just befriend the right people because socializing makes the group.

Just make sure you go drinking with them IC sometimes, or get involved in their roleplay without forcing it. Or heck, just ask them about it and talk with them.

I used to go with some cringy otaku friends, I enjoyed their company, but they were cringy as fuck. And there were like 2 emos and an edgelord that managed to destroy the group. But the thing is that I really miss them, I tried to reunite the group but it was impossible because lots of drama happened. Now I just go with my little brother and some lonely friend.

So how does your boyfriend feel about your love of cosplay and/or lolita?

Is he supportive or does he shit on it?
3 replies omitted. Click here to view.
>>
>>9721163
My boyfriend loves lolita. He's literally the most supportive boyfriend I could have imagined. He listens to me sperg out about prints, brands, drama, new releases, etc etc. He even gets into it himself sometimes, which is amusing (he doesn't actively engage, just lurks and then tells me funny shit).

He gives me a monthly budget/allowance to spend on lolita and my other collection hobby. I don't work because I'm too much of an aspie to hold a job, but I keep our house spotlessly clean and am a great cook, so I think we have a fair trade off deal going on.
>>
>>9721201
I agree. I don't want a guy to pay for my food or anything in my life, but I need him to be able to pay his half when we're doing things together. A lot of my favorite things to do, favorite restaurants to eat at, etc. are a bit pricey. I'm not going to deal with some guy making $12.50 an hour guilt tripping me because he's poor.

anyone know how listen flavor pants fit? I can't really find any measurements on the hips part. I really want to know, as I've got quite a big waist to hip ratio (62cm waist - 85cm hips).
>>
>>9720213
You should be fine, I seem to fit ok with 65cm waist and 88cm hips. I didn't think that was a particularly large waist/hip ratio (assuming you mean largest measurement around your butt, not just "at the low waist/hipbones) My hips are more butt than hip bones though, so I don't have very much curve when viewed from the front

Starting a thread since I couldn't find one.

I'm getting more into skincare recently and I have a question. I bought Secret Key's Snow White Cream and COSRX AHA/BHA Toner. Since the snow white cream contains niacinamide and the COSRX toner has a low pH, is there any problem in using this cream after the toner? Is it better to wait a few minutes or should I use one in the morning and the other at night?
