Hello guys, I tried cosplaying/cosmaking for the first this year. I made the Warlock Trials of osiris. Post some of your first cosplays and share the love. ^_6

I'm going to be wearing a navy dress for an event, and I'm not sure whether to go with black or brown shoes. The dress is a deep neutral navy with gold buttons and white trim. I have Classic knee boots in both colors, but I'm not sure which to bring.

According to menswear, either color can be used, but do you think I can aply that to Lolita as well? I'm leaning towards brown but I'm unsure.
brown please.
I was considering it, but I wasn't sure what style of blouse to wear underneath so I said screw it. Do you think a choker would work instead of the jabot?

I'll look into some bat tights or some other creepy elements! The book is more for functional, holding my wallet and keys, while the pumpkin was kind of a prop.
A choker would be better. If you're keeping the bat theme you could incorporate that with the choker
Does the outside show wear easily? I've had a similar pair and the fake leather material started peeling everywhere it got even the smallest scuff.

Saw this on tumblr today, I have never seen this OP worn before and if anyone has any more photos of it that would be awesome
>Doing everything to not just stand on the floor in shoes for a photo
Those crazy nips are adorable
it is so hard to find selfies of japanese lolitas wearing shoes haha, some do collages with the unworn shoes in a separate photo. i am endlessly amused.

>those legs

I love this. I'm a hiking fanatic, and my legs are usually bruised up and cut to shreds. I think it is cute, and very girlish. As a kid I was always falling around and getting bruised and abraised, and I think that's a very childish and vivacious quality. Unblemished skin is more ladylike, but being cut and scraped up is girly and cute.

>hey, I was just playing in the mud and climbing a tree yesterday
>today I had a bath and put on nice sunday clothes

That is absolutely precious.

Tell us stories of cosplayer customers and how working there has affected your cosplay spending and views on people.

Other fabric/craft stores welcome

Maybe I'm lucky and also a shitty person, but the Hobby Lobby that opened up recently near me is far cheaper than the Michaels and the Joanns. It's better stocked, very well staffed, and the one person I know that works there loves her job and gets paid very well. I'm pretty anti-Christian but I can't say no to all the cheap craft supplies.
How is it cheaper? I've always found the prices to be the same as competitors except with less coupons. They did have good deals now and then but it wasn't particularly frequent.
>skeletiano coming for his bride
Anyone get lucky enough to snag some of the Nintendo fabric at Joanns? My coworkers pretty much bought all the good stuff before me, but landed 1.5 yards of the Wind Waker cotton.
Sometimes it seems like prices vary by area. That does seem like a lucky break though. My Hobby Lobby is always understaffed and all the middle class uppity moms shop there for frames and tie blanket fleece. There has never been a time I didn't get stuck behind one of these bitches trying to return something something they bought on sale for full price, or trying to buy something that is no longer on sale but demanding the sale price. Once a lady was trying to return something she bought at Radio Shack (which still exists I guess?) and wouldn't fuck off even when the cashier pointed out the receipt said Radio Shack on it.
My JoAnns is usually understaffed too but the people there are nice and efficient, also the customers there aren't nuts from what I've experienced.

Goddamn that is one trend that needs to end. You people are not 2D.
I went to a small con once, <1000 attendees level of small. There were these Miku and Luka cosplayers that I kept seeing all weekend.
Both were adorable and pretty, perfect body for the characters, etc. But spray-dyed hair and satin eBay costumes couldn't save them.
Nose rings. They look disgusting.

Can we have a Cheongsam or general Chinese style shirts thread?

this just looks like the new trend of long salwars
How did hanboks look like before the standardized Joseon hanboks?
Cheongsam are the British bastardisation of qipao, so you can basically do what you like with them. The darts, fitted silhouette etc are not really traditional in the slightest, but the old way of making them is nearly non existent and a relic from days gone by. Unfortunately that history isn't very available in English language formats.

Uhhh...she competed in and WON the WCS which lead to a huge online debacle about how the WCS was probably rigged because the other contestants noticed the HER team was the focus of way more attention for photos, interviews, videos etc.

She definitely considered herself a cosplayer.

>Sorry for sounding ranty.

It's not ranty at all.

I understand where you are coming from. Some people prefer to compartmentalize behavior keeping everything separate.

I think of people as whole entities and that if I support anything they do I support and condone any misbehavior or asshatery they comit.

It's why I don't eat at Chick-fil-a anymore. Sure their religious policies have nothing to do with making a tasty chicken sandwich. But they do use that money to be asshats to gay people.

Therefore Harrison can't have any of my money to cheat on his wife.
How can you compete when they ask you to come over, look good, then get a free trophy while not trying? Oh and including it was already known even before leaving Italy.

Haven't lurked for too long in /cgl/, maybe six months, but it's apparent to me that I have a lot to learn. My question is if there are any casual but leaning gothic coords or pieces that any of you would recommend for office wear? Not looking for shoes, but all other suggestions are welcome. I apologize for the poor quality, but pic related. I love blouses like these, but could I pair it with lace tights and a pencil skirt? Please help! Any comments to guide me, even to harshly correct me, are appreciated!
You can absolutely pair blouses like that with pencil skirts. A lot of lolita blouses can be worked into office wear that way, as long as it isnt super weird. A lot of plain dresses can be made into office wear as well, black for you likely, but it just needs to be toned down and dont try to do things like wear the headpieces or lashes or whatever people would for a lolita outfit. You may even find that some offices are flexible enough to let more lolita outfits in, but that is very much something you feel out.

If your office is business professional you likely cant do it, but bus casual is usually vague enough to do it.
Have you seen 70s secretary blouses? People repurpose them for loli so I don't see why they can't be worn as they were originally intended.
We can do casual on Fridays, but that's pretty much it. Ah, thanks so much. <3

What about examples of accessories I could incorporate? I can almost always get away with jewelry, etc that is more eccentric than the usual string of pearls.
Excentrique is a good brand for this

This fills me with such regret, I worked at an office that didn't care what I wore, but I never wore lolita even though my coworkers knew it was my thing, because I wanted to look professional.
But who was I kidding? They already knew it was my hobby, I should have just enjoyed working there to the fabulous max.

Back OT otome prints in darker colour ways, such as JM, are pretty office friendly.
Pair it with plain tights and simple shoes, along with a blazer or cardigan, and you're fine.

>it's not lolita just because you claim it to be

Indeed but the inverse is also true. By 'Japanese press' I was actually referring to the G&L bible and other publications showcasing alt Japanese fashion, particularly from Harajuku, not mainstream or otaku publications that don't know their shit.

Anyway, to break it down, the lolita components of their ensemble are

>bell shaped (cage) skirt (length and shape are significant)
>hair crown (oldschool lolita trend)
>fluffy bunches (another oldschool trend)

The other parts are more typically goth, but not completely out of place for gothic lolita.

I've never seen regular goth look quite like this although I agree that there is certainly a v-kei look a lot of ero lolita but again, v-kei in general was highly influential on the early gothic lolita look and ero is no exception. Grey areas gonna happen.
yea probably more Guro but cute either way. I can dig it.

Different anon here, I'm a fan of ero lolita done right, but does anybody have a scan of the specific pages in the G&L Bible that specifically say the term "ero lolita"?

Every time an ero lolita thread pops up, someone always says "ero lolita was never a thing," "stop trying to make ero lolita happen, it's never going to happen," or "it was a misunderstanding by earlier Western lolitas." But other people claim that it was definitely referenced in the GLB at one time.

I don't have earlier bibles myself, so I have no way to verify this.

Would a helpful anon with access to the older volumes (and a basic reading comprehension of Japanese katakana) be able to provide a scan?
Glad we're all spending 2+ hours getting ready so we can pander to your fetishes anon.
I'm wondering this as well.
