>>9013706
I have the skirt and the construction is terrible. The elasticated part of the waistband is far too tight and gathered compared to the non-elasticated part, meaning the skirt sits very oddly. I haven't actually worn it out yet as I need to get the waistband fixed first

I went with a few friends of mine, didn't do any cosplay because it was only my second con (the first being C4 a few years back) but had a blast anyway.
Didn't get a ton of loot aside from some posters, a cute nekopara pin, an Advance Wars perler a couple UMR blindbags and a S;G artbook. I'm happy with my purchases, although my friends chastised me for not spending more cash.

Did anyone else go to Giordino's? The deep dish there was fucking divine, 100% worth the wait. We also ran into tactical clownpiece there, who was a pretty cool guy.
The raves were fun but I missed Snails House on Friday due to one of our group getting his phone stolen during, which sucked considering Saturday wasn't nearly as good, I felt.
Next year I might try my hand at cosplaying Hellfire from Mayoiga, although I doubt anyone will remember it by then.

Here's a photo of my meager haul, sadly the posters got really creased during transport.

For some fucking reason normies always ask ME what's going on at cons which is amazing bc I am usually in cosplay and I guess I just might have a trustworthy face or some shit.

My favorite was when they asked me and my friends if there was a play going on not two blocks from the convention center. Like yeah buddy, this is a big play that's taking place across town.

One retarded teenage boy asked me what was going on while we were standing right outside a yaoi panel and he was in incredulous disbelief that anime would have gay shit at all associated with it.

By your logic, nobody should be wearing syringes and pills either. Also, Sakanako is one of the founders of the Menhera Exhibition committee and Kuua Oyasumi's art sempai, she knows what she is doing and if it rubs you the wrong way, Menhera obviously isn't for you.

Wear it however you like, it can still fit in fairy kei for instance with the second option. Just don't call it decora until you've got enough accessories.

Thank you for your input anons! Glad to see some love for Innocent. Since each of you suggested different methods, maybe I should try both #2 and #3 and see which works better. Bringing my own hair into the mix is a bit inconvenient. This cosplay is going to eat up a shit-ton of money either way, so buying a couple different wigs ain't gonna hurt too much. My wallet will end up crying anyway.
For the outfit I'd like to do the Sanson family executioner jacket which pretty much means that pre-haircut Marie is out of the game unfortunately. As much as I would like to do older Marie, I'm probably better suited for her younger version as far as facial structure goes. So crazy mohawk it is.

Too many to list. Just look up characters with red twin tails. You can restyle the bangs as necessary and possibly straighten the clips. In fact, any character with short red hair would also work since the twin tails are clip ons. You have hundreds of options.

Can anyone recommend a good wig for Madoka that isn't in that awful milkshake pink?

I'm currently working on a Ciel Phantomhive wig but I can't work out how to get the hair to fall into the right 'chunks' like pic related.

I've got Got2b Glue and when I try it (On a different wig) it makes the ends look really obviously glued because the tips go all dark and lank, yet leaving the wig as-is just looks like a floppy mess.

I've got some got2be glued spray too, I'm wondering if that will have the same effect or not. I'm currently testing it on my test wig but it hasn't dried yet so I'm not sure if it'll stay dark.

Anyone have any advice/ideas as to how this has been achieved in the picture? It seems like in any wig ref I find there's no obvious signs of how they got it to hold shape.

Keep them cgl related

Where ever you are attempting to sell your stuff is shit. Find a new method. Swap meets, meetups, sell threads, facebook coms, ect.

Do yourself a favor and take photos of the product you are selling. Don't forget to use good lighting, setup, ect. If you have a dress form use it, and pin the item or outfit it in a flattering look. I personally refuse to buy items from lolitas who are too lazy to present the item correctly. It tells me they were also too lazy to take care of the item properly.

Yes, a shit ton of lolitas are cheap as hell. That has nothing to do with size.

Last thread at autosage: >>8837877

This thread is for ouji and aristocrat (aka "boystyle") discussion. Boystyle refers to the masculine counterparts of lolita and aristocrat fashions. There is a lot of overlap between these styles, and different people use different terms to describe them. So, consider this a thread for those whose style is on the right half of Buttcape's Lolita Family Triangle: http://www.kawacura.com/moripress/wp-content/uploads/2015/06/0dmmLH6-350x350.jpg

The New Jersey Convention and Exposition Center 150000sq ft double of the old spot. And now because it's in Edison New Jersey there's so many Hotel options. They probably did it for the money, Because it was probably so cheap to put it in Atlantic City because it's a shit hole. I legit was trying to go this year what a group of friends and every review of every Hotel I've read said that this place does not protect the guests drunk people come in at night. The best places we're about in 1000. If AC is so shady the prices shouldn't be expensive. I found even more funny that if you book for the week before or for the week after prices go down and so drastically it's not even funny.
>>

The Edison convention center has no meeting rooms and one tiny hotel on site and the next hotel is a mile+ away. NYC has a massive lack of mid sized convention space. I really wish the new Meadowlands Convention Center Proposal eventually goes through.

I mostly see it used as a derogatory term, as in "ugh why is she wearing that ugly normie blouse with AP." It just smacks of special snowflake tryhard.
>>
>>9021793
its not inherintly derogatory. Again, normie just means 'regular, 'average' etc. It doesn't mean something is bad or shitty, just that it's very...common, for lack of a better word.

If you're wearing an average, everyday looking shirt with your coord then you're going to catch shit. It doesn't mean the shirt is BAD, just that it doesn't have a place in an otherwise very dressy outfit.
>>
>>9021793
You're prefacing it with 'ugly', which makes it derogatory. You can, for example, wear a normie peter pan collar blouse with a skirt and call it otome. If you wear normie anything (minus a few accessories) with lolita, it's not lolita, since normie = not lolita by definition.

Aka 'I don't like those normie shoes with such a sweet outfit' = 'those shoes aren't pastel/have any cute bows and generally don't meet the mark for lolita, it is out of place'

Alternatively, shoes like mary-janes and oxfords are considered normie, and are welcomed readily into the fashion. Lots of people recommend payless mary janes for girls that need extra support.

I love the smell of secondhand Japanese brand. Does anyone who buys from mbok or y!a know what I'm talking about? It gives me such a nostalgic and happy feeling of getting a new dress, even if I've had the dress for a while.
It doesn't seem like an individual skin smell, since I recognize it from pieces from different sellers. But it's a vaguely skin-like scent. There's another distinct scent that almost smells like grape candy. Sometimes it smells like a mixture of both.
I can't tell if it's a really popular detergent or the air/people in Japan just happen to smell sweet.
>>
>>9022439
Grape hi-chew smell! I know exactly what you're talking about anon! I love that smell too. A lot of my second hand packages come in smelling like grape candy/bubble gum, and plastic haha. It's weird, but I love it too. Don't know about that skin cell smell though....idk what that even smells like
