Does anyone have a pictures of Malco Modes Jennifer being worn with lolita? I've heard so many controversial opinions on those. Especially interested in modified pettis with top tier removed.

I own one and it's basically one of those child crinolines that are being sold in bridal stores. Just right size for lolita skirt lol. Although, I've never been wearing it outside the house. It just feels like something too hard to keep in place when I decide to sit down or move in any way. You kinda have to fold it with your hands so people won't see your undies, that feels ridiculous. Petticoats seem just easier to wear despite the heat.
>>
Can anyone review the Classical Puppets winter petticoats? How is the quality, poof, and warmth?
I live in a fucking freezer, so it seems right up my alley.
>>
>>9789066
I got a hoop skirt last year, put it on and practically cried because the shape looked so odd. Then I realised the hoops are adjustable, so I can make them smaller or bigger for different levels of poof and change the size ratios to look more a line or bell shaped.
Definitely worth checking if you can do that with yours because it looks dreadful here.
>>
>>9789180
Well like I said I don't have a Petti on top of it here so yeah the shapes weird but the poof is better than most of the average go to pettis you can get these days.
>>
>>9789296
Why would you put a hoop skirt without something to soften the hoops under a dress that’s as light weight as the one in the picture? I have three different lengths of the skirts and have a proper covering to go ontop of them for when o use lighter material dresses so this doesn’t happen. I get the point you’re trying to show, and I’m sure people will find value in it, but try and make it more presentable then you did. Even dropping the waist a bit to better flair out the bottom would improve this soo much.

What is the cancer that is slowly killing cosplay as it used to be? What annoys you most in recent developments?

Is it “sexy” cosplays?
Patreon? Instagram?
Bought costumes or certain series?

I agree entirely, I think shoots that tell a story tend to carry so much more emotion. It takes the cosplay just that step further from just wearing a costume, to actually embodying the character. I was lucky enough to meet a photog who has the same interest, but outside that, conceptual photographers just seem so rare.

Maybe just straight up tell them you’re more interested in conceptual photography than glamour shots? I think having examples from other photographers would really help. I know you mentioned checking out the source material, but I think coming prepared with specific shots that you feel carry the emotion you want to communicate.

I’m in a similar boat as you haha. I actually started drawing out a storyboard of my dream shoot. Sometimes you gotta to the absolute most to get your point across.

I think all the soyboys and non hetero cosplayers are killing this community. They all act so flamboyant and fabulous that that it distracts con goers from my gf and I in our couples cosplay. Like we put a lot of time and effort into finding the right cosplay and spend tons of money on them just to have some soysucker in a shitty homemade maid outfit steal out thunder. They also attract unwanted attention from Christians. Cosplay and anime would be better received in god's eyes if it weren't for these cancers.

Honestly, it's not hard to make friends at cons, at least at the smaller cons, in the big ones everyone seems to be in their own groups and not very social with people outside of them.

It's might seem shitty, but cons are funner when you are alone. Depending on which one you're participating and how many events there are, you'll want to go at your own space to enjoy all the shit there, and you won't have to skip some fun shit because your friends want to do other stuff instead

The best way to do cons when you got buds is to separate yourselves for shit you want to do, and come together for events you all want to see with each others. Also going to eat together and talking it out is the funnest shit, especially if there's no event nobody wants to see at the moment

Imagine if you had to wait several hours just because your friends wanted to get some autographs. You'd waste some serious precious time just because you didn't want to be alone and enjoy lots of other shit

At this point wouldn’t it be better to just post your cosplay stuff on your personal Facebook account? The only reason I could see people using pages is not wanting their normie friends to see their cosplay stuff or not wanting to see their convention friends to see their personal stuff.

It's been going on for quite a while. Six months ago, Facebook cosplay page I was an admin in had 250k followers and there are times when some posts would literally only have 500 reach, it was absurd. It usually averages at 2k~5k so it was shocking to see it go that low.

It's Cinema 4D, I think you could do this in blender, 3dsmax, maya etc though.

I'll take this selected panel out, print it separately, and manually drape or vacuum-form some thin thermoforming plastic over it. The main(3d printed) model will have a gap in its place, with flanges along the edges, so I'll just trim the heat-formed piece and glue it on the outside. Finish will be either one-way mirror film or a careful airbrush dusting of metallics(which works in some lights for a one-way mirror).

If youre patient, try sponge and latex: get a foam sheet very wet wit liquid latex, extend it and let it dry overnight. The resulting foam will be tacky and can be shaped in a lot of ways, so try texturing different parts of Goji's skin, glue them to the base body, and paint over with more latex.

Honestly though, if someone isn't bathing regularly, there's a lot more going on. They probably grew up with some kind of neglect.

I know I did. I'm all kinds of fucked up socially and I only shower every other day.

Maybe you should have pointed that out right away, "harassment" isn't necessarily sexual.
I don't think this happens often but if someone harassed you sexually you should absolutely take it up to the mods so they can ban the person who did it, possibly even involve the police if needed.
>>
>>9788879
It's OT but I used to be the same way when I'm heavily depressed and couldn't bother taking care of myself for weeks. Lolita actually helped me getting some kind of self-hygiene schedule because I wanted to do it justice and look at least groomed when wearing such beautiful dresses. Other than that, how do you have the energy to dress up, drive to a meetup and be social but taking a shower is too much? I'd be way too anxious for that and would just flake out last minute.
