On the subject of star guardians, I think this is the only good poppy I've seen so far. Not many seem to get ears right (applies to yordles in general)
Yeah those ears seem fine. Nothing sticks out about them.
The proportions on this are pretty good, and it looks well made. She looks cute.

what's a cosplay you've always wanted to do but for one reason or another never did?

I always wanted to cosplay Anarchy panty but was always too self conscious before now to do it. I've lost about 80 lbs this past year and finally feel like I could do it.

Part of it is the suit, which i feel like i would need commissioned, the other half is just me only really going to cons in the summer and worrying i would boil to death
That's what you get for dating a normie, should have gone with one of us
Lose weight, learn to sew, use a custom bodysuit for the body portion of the costume’s skin, then invest in high quality facepaint.

There's a few that come to mind but the one that's been bothering me lately is Lillie. I love both of her designs but I'm too dark skinned to suit her at all. I'm better off cosplaying Mallow desu.
We have very similar taste. Nice.

This Saturday will be the second year I cosplay Bismarck with my friend as Prinz Eugen at our local Oktoberfest.

I was just wondering if any other people cosplay publically outside of boring convention centers.

Last year I had a warm reception at the event and they even let us in free even though it wasn't "traditional" attire. I was initially concerned people may be offended by the time period of the cosplay but was pleasantly surprised it was for naught.

are you german? because I srsly cannot imagine any german would cosplay at the Oktoberfest.
I am not in Munich, Germany. I am in the great US of A.

We got a little thing called freedom of expression in that regard here. :) But yeah, lets not make this a politics discussion.
Germans also have freedom of expression, anon.

Period-styled cosplay which look nothing like period outfits. There are so many god damned resources out there today to learn about historical clothing, fabrics, construction techniques, etc. You've got no excuse.
this one speaks to me
I dont mind so much my body but I prefer it if the character is fully clothed or wears some kind of gender neutral attire
I just don't want my friends or someone that knows me to see me
Cool. Well, then I'm just here to confirm everyone's neuroses. Yes, people do see what you look like. Yes, people are judging. Stop the shit.

I really don't know how to react when normies and weebs call my clothing style "anime" or "lolita", so I always kind of... freeze up? Pic related is what I usually wear.
Honestly, I always thought Liz Lisa, Ank Rouge, Axes femme, and the like were more "animey" than lolita and some other j-fashions, because they actually look like they'd be drawn correctly in anime.

God I love those shoes.
I'd dial it down on the gold accessories, comes off as a little gaudy, the necklace is fine though.
As for a hair accessory, I think maybe some small wine colored roses with pearl links to the side? The ivory/white of the pearls would bring together the lighter colors in the dress

Or hell, if you really wanna keep with the gold theme, maybe even a gold leaf barrette, the leaves would fit with the winery theme
Thinking of purchasing this dress from Boz, but I'm blanking on blouses it would look good with so I could vary it up. I'll probably have it with a corset 99% of the time as I hate high waist. I can see an off the shoulders blouse looking great with it, maybe a square neck with hime sleeves and it would be a good warm day gothic dress with a jacket on top and blouseless (and that's how Boz coorded it). But...with how awkwardly high the top part is I can't think of a more traditional collar blouse would look alright. I'm probably just not thinking outside the box enough.
High collar blouses.
moment i saw this i thought of an over the shoulder blouse, I think it's a safe bet
why only prints, anon? that's a tough shade of lav/dusty pink so I'd go solid white main with shoes matching the shawl color and fluffy white earmuffs.
alternatively, you could find a classic floral print that either matches or compliments that warm color. creamy pearl accessories to bring out the buttons.
classic, or classic sweet may be the best way to go, especially if the fur trim is a more warm off-white irl.

No circle lense general so here goes,

Is it really believable that circle lenses can last 1 year meanwhile other contacts lasts a month or 3 months tops? especially when used 3-4 times a week?

I've been wearing mine for 6 months now and have my eyes are a bit sore after wearing (though to be fair I had eyelid tape on and my hair was touching my eyes a bit and that caused irritation, first time it happened).

Should I start replacing these now? I mean, it's not like I took perfect care of them so maybe they really won't last the full year.

I got told from a friend it's a bad idea to buy lenses on Amazon because they supposedly will have microtears in them or any other defects. Is that true?
A lot of things on Amazon are reselling AliExpress stuff. That stuff doesn't go through any QA process at all, so if there's defects they don't care
i'm really late but my experience with ohmykitty4u was pretty good actually. the color is nice and the lenses feel really comfortable in my eyes
Thank you! Will take a look. I actually don’t really dress j-fashion anymore and never really got into cosplay so no enlargement might be better for once. I just priced normal colored lenses and talked with my eye doctor. These are prettier and cheaper still. I will probably get some everyday clear from her and order a couple circle lens pairs for days I wanna feel a little cuter and add something fun.
Do you have very sensitive eyes? How comfy were they? (You got them in silicone hydrogel? I’m not sure if that style comes in any other material.). I always liked Acuvue Oasys best and that’s the material they’re made from so I’m hoping these will be more comfortable than other circle lenses.

I'm driving in morning of because boo paying for hotels, but if be happy to hang out at the event out after it :) no drinks for me though cause I'm the driver ); I'll be wearing a black/grey indie gothic border print, coffin bag, black chiffon blouse, and probably looking sleepy haha
Depends on where you live. When I lived there I was by the coast, and all the meets were too far. They're a lot in up towards DtLA, Pasadena. They were largely in Riverside and Long Beach when I lived there.
No. Good luck making friends here. Everyone is super cliquey and e-fame hungry.
Active comms in SoCal
>Orange County Lolita Community
>LA-Lolitas (secret Chinese language comm)
>San Diego Frill Society

Inactive comms in SoCal
>Beach cities
>Inland empire
>Southern California

My favorite comms are San Diego and Orange County because they're a nice medium size and inclusive so it's easy to make friends. I don't particular care for the LA comm because it's so well established and everyone just hangs out with their own friends. Nobody is rude per se, just unfriendly.
Great, I'll keep an eye out for you, then! I'll be wearing the 3F Bloody set with a black velvet Roland, probably also looking sleepy/beat up from hiking all day tomorrow.

Soon he and I graduate college and we are looking to move abroad to Japan like the weebs we are. We never want children and we are always happy to be with each other.

>tfw all the accessories for my backup Halloween coord arrived but the main dress and wig haven't

I think I'm cursed when it comes to having something ready for Halloween. It always goes wrong and now I've got three dresses ordered and none of them are ready to ship.
Sweet, thanks Anon. Gonna risk it, worst case scenario is that I don't get the dress, and it isn't on any of the JP/EN secondhand sites currently anyway.

I found the Chinese name for the print and Googled it, and that happened to bring up a 2.taobao page with a search bar. Not sure how that worked. Can't link it directly, either, because the direct link leads to an error page, so I have to do a new google search whenever I want to return to it. Sorry Anon.
Don't take a chance on diamond honey. All of the socks I ordered have transfer from them trying to fold them up before they were dry, and the purse I bought has damaged lining.
Yikes thanks for the warning, I had been thinking of ordering those red socks too
I was just about to order the fucking same ones TODAY
Thanks anon, THANKS

What are some good anime/manga about jfashion? Any that embody gyaru, mori, visual kei, lolita, etc?

These threads always seem to die so I'm going to pose some other questions with this:

> Anime/manga you love that no one else knows about?
> Is there a specific anime/manga you're sick of being referred to as 'fashionable' or 'inspiration'?
> What jfashion would you like to see more?

Spoiler: she just burns all of her lolita stuff at the end because she can't help but feel "too old" ,"embarassing" and pressured to leave (she hears her colleagues going on about a 30yo idol being "too old",flabby,... to be an idol and wear cute things, a young lolita says it's important to know when to quit,her lolitafriend jokes about maybe quitting,...)
At the end you can see her in "normal" clothes,looking in an evasive way,with a slight smile, at a burando shop window she's passing by.

Hmm, a little sad to read, but now I fee a little happy I'm not japanese and being alt in the west is way more accepted until granny age.
Though, I've been thinking so many times I'll switch to classic or gothic one I get 30. Now I wonder if I can wear sweet longer than that.
