Know anyone that had their cosplay ruined at a con? Horror stories? Infamous malfunctions with boob tape? How do you keep your cosplay in place and/or ensure your armor/props/whatever can hold up all weekend?

Had an old field pack with quick release straps, but they had shitty tolerances, so the bit that two rings together kept slipping loose and it would end up being held in place by naught but a single snap, which would inevitably fail. Ended up getting it tailored after the convention so that it won't happen again.

Why do you cosplay or dress in Lolita fashion, /cgl/?

Why is it important to you?
8 replies and 2 images omitted. Click here to view.
I come from a family where style meant the cheapest possible clothes, no matching colors. Jeans and ugly t-shirts, and later culture robes. You all know those fat women with bright colorful sacks. That's where my family moved. Father's idea of clothes is that it can be used until it has more holes than fabric. We're upper middle class. Money didn't go to clothes, it went to feed us. We ate ridiculously well now that I think about it. Good fresh food, thank you parents.

So, I didn't care what I had in my closet. I cared about other things. Then 2006 I saw my first pictures of lolita and it hit me like a big yellow school bus. Of course I had admired detailed clothes earlier, historical ones, costumes. It just wasn't a thing back then. Lolita was a short-cut to adorable clothes, ruffles. 2006 was a bad or good year, I hit the rock bottom of being angsty teenager and lolita was my way to recovery. It was taking care of myself.

I've since moved on to otome in my daily life, because I'm old enough to work and working world doesn't favor ott clothes. I still go ott when I have energy, go to cons, or want to treat myself. I love my frills, bows, matching colors, and effort I can see. I love that transformation from average looking adult to a frilly princess.

tl:dr family likes ugly clothes, lolita was my way to recover from depression
That's... really inspiring.
When I was little I wanted to wear clothes like the one cartoons had. Now I do.
I also take great pleasure in making things, like seeing them take form in front of me.
I sort of suppressed my nerdiness all thru college because I was so desperate to fit in with my peers. Then a friend of mine in grad school took me to my first con (I was 22) and I wore the (nerd-related) costume I'd put together for halloween that year and I was like, oh, my people??

I've always enjoyed making things and crafting but didn't really have an outlet for it and so cosplay is that for me. I really enjoy challenging myself with new projects and techniques and it's nice to have an immediate tangible product that I can be proud of when I'm done.

And it's fun to wear a costume from a specific show/thing and meet other fans who love it as much as you do.
Escapism, mostly.

Working on the templates for the armor before getting into actual eva foam.

Anyone wanna throw any critiques or anything at me, this is going to be my first time working with armor at all.
the leg spike should be bigger and more angled.
Oops, yeah its gonna be more angled once I make it out of eva foam, it just couldn't stick out like that made out of craft foam. I see what you're saying about size, I'll probably fix that tomorrow esp since its an easy fix!
Yep. Really did think it was her wings.

Bad taste, obv.

I didn't get tickets for Wondercon and I enjoy drinking with weebs. I usually don't even like the convention part of conventions.
are you going on sunday?
if so i'll drink with you beanie
I know the hotel is on a marina but is it close to any sandy beaches or surf spots,
Definitely, my flight doesn't leave until 6:00. That's hours and hours of potential drinking!
nowhere near the beach. the waterfront is a sidewalk, then rocks. looks like there's a park, if you can call a patch of grass outside a hotel a park.

Yo. Crossposter from /k/.

Anyone here want to learn how to pose with firearms/weapons to be believable/look the part?

A good understanding of the basics can really help sell the look, both in regards to gear and regards to general attitude/posture.

You should also check YouTube. I would look at the uspsa/idpa guys. You can basically learn how to operate any firearm you can think of thanks to YouTube

The guy who makes these is awesome. He does sell them aswell, they are solid cast resin and glorious. fb/Woodwarder
It's ok to recoil in horror at the cleanness of that outfits props, Volpin made that.

at a second glance, this isnt actually Woodwarders version - its missing the laser cut rune detailing and has a beveled center ring on the hilt. Whoever did this did a great job!
If you're referring to the foam falchion, then that's me! So glad you like it and flattered you think it's commission-worthy.

With the armor, how can i make it?
what do people do about their eyebrows if they are really dark and don't match their wigs?
Anyone have experience with good 3D Printer commissioners? Any I should check out for certain?

Thanks. I'm thinking what I might do is pull up the top parts of the wig into the poytail but just let the rest fall down to cover the back of my head, then cut it short. Then I have some leftover hair to fix up the ponytail (which I'm working on right now and it's haaard wow. PVA glue takes an incredibly long time to dry, too. )

The concept make its look tinted, guess it all boils down to interpretation. But there's definitely no purple in it.
Even this just looks black to me. But the concept art definitely makes everyone's colors look much brighter. For example, Stahl's concept has very green looking hair and eyes, but everything in game looks much more like a brown with a green undertone.

> be new to decora

But why is yukapon that bad?
I feel that deco lolita was a bit more uniform in concept, but it really wasn't executed well. Today OTT lolita tends to be a lot of hair accessories, but there's a general lack of brooches, veils or deco in the skirt portion. I suppose that's what the print is for, but it still feels lacking in some way.
Then again, it could just be the grandma in me talking.

I can't tell whether you mean you don't know Yukapon, or why she's a bad example.

Imo she's never really done decora, mostly just fairy kei and generic *~*imouto fashun*~* (although she was one of the first Western girls to do so, so maybe it wasn't so generic at the time)

If you just don't know who she is, google her, I promise you won't be disappointed. It's a wild ride from start to end.

She was really cute too, I think at least. Sucks she kinda ruined her life. Guess she's still doing her though, and Akira's moved on (except for whenever he starts getting harassed again by Yuka clones) so whatever.
