I love the stuff h.Naoto is coming out with in their Steam line, but I am not sure how I would wear it. Some of it could be lolita but not all of it fits the aesthetic. I am not sure what other jfash some of this would be "acceptable" for. Mori? CPK?

Also general h.Naoto thread.

Can anyone recommend a pair of blue circle lenses that appear well on dark brown eyes that don't look ridiculous or alien?

Everyone knows the standards of cosplay have changed over the years and so have conventions. Let's talk cons & cosplay 10+ years ago.
Did you attend any of them?
What was the community generally like?
Was there a generally less need to be perfect considering the lack of availability to resources?

Do you run a small business or just rich enough to closet clean?

I have a serious morality question for you /cgl/, and I want honest opinions please.

What are your thoughts on the whole "fat pride" movement? Does it offend you in terms of cosplay ethics? Are you upset that fat cosplayers are becoming more mainstream and no longer as looked down upon? Do you like the movement and welcome it into the community?

Just a thought I had. What's your opinion?

His eating unhealthy is definitely a major contributor. Is there some sort of app I could download on his iPad for calorie counting, or should I just make him write it down?
My brother is a physical trainer and has already spoken with him multiple times about eating healthy and having a cheat day and such, but he just doesn't listen. I managed to get him to eat oatmeal and granola because he would always see me eating yogurt and granola as a snack. But he has so many junky foods and just keeps buying them no matter what any of us do. He'll eat strawberries once a day and thinks that is him being so healthy, but then he also eats half a jar of cookies, an ice cream sandwich or two, and most of a dutch apple pie along with meals. He also gets up like clockwork during the night to eat. Maybe if he had a physical number to stare at it would help him control his urges?

My brother and I have been working on stretches and exercises for him to do, but we've finally just given up and realized that unless soemone is holding his hand through everything he will not do it, thus the failed attempts with a nutritionist and personal trainer. I have to go with him everyday to the track and do whatever exercises and walk with him otherwise he will not do it...

I dont care, but I wouldn't call it a fat pride thing. Its more or less just people who are overweight feeling good about themselves instead of sorry for themselves which I think it pretty cool. Not always nice to look at, but having confidence is awesome instead of lazying around and just feeling sorry for yourself and making people pity the fuck out of you.

Pretty relevant

Last thread >>8340407

Look up buttcape's "Ouji Overview" before asking any questions here.

Google "elegant gothic aristocrat" before asking any questions here.

Read the whole thread before asking any questions here.

Post coords, art, inspo, etc. OC and selfposts encouraged!


I was just saying, I wish there were more military coords

No its not, you cant even get inspo from dolls, or talk about what outfits they are wearing because it is for dolls. It is barely on topic.

anyone have a wig they use or plan to use for a boystyle coord? i see a lot of white wigs, black wigs, and some long or mullety wigs. i'm thinking of going with a crazy high-volume blonde like pic related to add some color since my wardrobe is basically standard goth colors right now.
>>
>>8364732
People further up this thread said they were getting inspo from them. I agree that maybe it was a bit much (the first dump was more than enough) but I get the relation. Posting the same old picture for the 20th time doesn't exactly generate conversation either.
>>
>>8364732
The lack of good ouji makes it hard, the lack of ouji in general even moreso, and people very rarely selfpost. The dolls aren't wearing clothing that exists for people which is.. depressing in some cases, but I certainly wish some of it did. We could probably use less doll pictures but some of them are relevant.

Nah. The "Costume Contest" is judging ONLY the costume. The "Cosplay Contest" is a skit contest judging the skit and also the costume to an extent.

To what extent, I dont know. I wish they would post prize info.

Thursday is the day I'm driving there, so I won't be attending 'cuz I know it'll be even MORE of a dead zone by the time I arrive.

Friday I'll be going as Tsukishima Kei from Haikyuu.
Saturday I'm going as Daichi Sawamura, also from Haikyuu.
And Sunday, I'll be Kuroo Tetsurou... also from Haikyuu.

I really like the volleyball anime. I wanted to cosplay as Hisoka from Hunter x Hunter this year, but I just don't have all my supplies yet.

What? Anon, these are cheap unbranded lipsticks from China. You don't know WHAT are in these, and text on a box is proof of nothing.
>>
Okay, anon here that's basically a Newbie to makeup. I don't even know how to buy foundation. I only own Two-Faced Coco Powder foundation (In light), but it's my exact skin tone. (I had to ask someone in store to help me figure that out) Unfortunately, it's 34 bucks for this small 11g compact. Does anyone have any advice on finding another, cheaper foundation? I'm kinda at a loss, and I find foundations, concealers, etc rather overwhelming.

I do fine with stuff that's not supposed to be subtle like your lipsticks, eyeshadows, and mascaras.

Well, they technically are branded. Regardless, I'll still use them, albeit not all every day because I have other shit. I'll let you know if I begin growing a third arm or die in the middle of the day.

>>8363706

Oh man it's been a journey, but for girls like us primer is essential to the rest of your makeup looking good throughout the day.

I use smashbox's primer (the variant for oily skin) and urban decay's deslick variant of their setting spray.

There are also some toners that will suck the oil right out of your face for most of the day.

GL!

So yep, quests of honour have been announced and the con is getting nearer.

Thoughts? Cosplays?

The quests are really pretty bad, I hope this will not become trend. Maybe old leadership was better for con.

Programme is also pretty shit.

Maybe alarming, maybe just mark that the real hobbyists convention (Frosti) will be main event from now on.

Frostbite became K18 because they had to figure out a way to make the tickets sell at a slower pace. Age limit is just the easiest way to do that. Anything else people might say is just bs reasons.

>>
>>8360848
I never saw any implicit reference to the 18+ rating being a mean to slow down sales.

More along the lines of "18+ visitors go to lectures and thus we want to cater more for them". That seemed to be the original public reason.
