Does anyone know how to apply this for the 3d to plush pattern tutorial? This is what I got at the moment and I don't know how to proceed.

>What are some Kawaii gifts you would give to a J-fashion friend?
>Have you seen any products this year that really stand out as "perfect" for certain J-fashion styles?
>What are some gifts you've gotten in the past that turned out to be perfect for your J-fashion style?
>Are there gifts that make cosplay easier / your cosplay friend will thank you forever if you give them this one item?

Please share! This topic came to mind while I was gift shopping yesterday in a crowded urban area. I had a list of what to get, but I kept spotting things that I thought would be great for J-fashion.

I have the exact same problem; I want both! What I'm kinda doing is I'm waiting until it rolls into the sale category and which ever one is left over then I'll say it's "fate" that I get that one. (did the same thing with a teddy bear coat; couldn't decide, let the sale section two months later make the choice for me)
>>
>>9720616
Do you know when it'll go on sale? I honestly don't shop online sephora so I don't know..
>>
>>9720678
I don't know, exactly, when it will go on sale but I do re-check items every few days to see if something's changed. You can also sign up for a service that'll keep wishlists of items on other sites for you and it will alert you when it goes on say. I don't know which program to recommend though.

Here's another brand to consider for J-fashion gifts; Kate Spade tends to be expensive, but I find their "novelty" series items often wont sell as well as their more mainstream stuff so it usually ends up in their sale section. I once got an all-leather strawberry purse that originally cost $300+ USD for about $47. The problem of course is waiting it out might mean you miss out, but once it's at closet child prices, the truth is it's better quality then most Lolita brands.
>>
>>9720829
Good thing is they often have sales and promo discounts. I love Kate Spade, it's a shame the list of countries they ship to is so short, right now I'm in love with one of their bags which I have no way of buying.

Oh gosh that's really cute. Even the palettes have elegant names.

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.

Just try ordering it from like all the possible services, ones bound to just not give a fuck and send it. You could just contact customer service and beg them if you're desperate.
>>
>>9719792

That's not too bad of a start, looks like the set comes with a blouse and random skirt. If your SS is okay with holding your items you might as well wait for photos before picking out some legwear, petticoat, shoes and bag and shipping it all together, then you'd have your first outfit.


Thanks for the links. I'm not into gimmick underwear, but that MTP set looks interesting.

No shopping service will send that to you; it’s banned and services will get fined/strikes against them.
>>
>>9720898
Thank you. <3
I have already ordered a petticoat, I hope it will work well with the dress. I need it for some cosplays, that I'm ordering along.
https://item.taobao.com/item.htm?id=44973182121
A big batch of stockings and tights is coming to me from AliExpress, including plain black and white ones, so I hope to match something.

As for a bag and shoes… I have already spent too much on this order, and I'm getting a bag from Japan (which sadly might not match the coord well, but I just couldn't pass on it).
I'm completely lost about shoes, even more that I need a little bigger size than are usually available (around EU 41).
And I really don't want to spend on shopping much more anymore. I'm now thinking how to avoid custom duties. Might be difficult with a 10+ kg package from China.
>>
>>9720906
Weird but good to know. Guess I'll have to get off my ass and just make it.

Thanks anon.

Has anyone experienced using tablecloths to cover ugly dorm desks before, when that same desk is also where you eat most of your meals and do most of your studying? I think it'd make my room look much nicer but I'm worried it'd get dirty fast, since I keep a lot of other stuff on my desk and would have to remove all the books, computer, lamp, penholder, etc every time I wanted to change the cloth.

Easy, buy a cute placemat for when you eat so it doesn't get dirty. Launder regularly.

Heya.
In the near future I'm going to Japan, Tokyo specifically and I do want to do some cosplay photoshoots when I'm there but I have no idea which photographers I could ask for this so I want to know if you guys maybe know some. Language is no barrier for me because I speak the language very well. I would love some Twitter and Instagram pages. Facebook pages are welcome too!

You clearly didn’t see the email was referenced to me, the room host, and a “Mr.” Not sure who the fuck you trolls are calling a she. The email clearly apologizes for staff assumptions and listening to a random passerby. Can’t change the minds of idiots hellbent on wanting to look right on 4chan. How common.

No duh they'll apologize, no matter how dumb your customer is you still want their money. Saying "sorry" isn't a big deal to anyone in customer service. Did it change your mind about ever staying at a Marriott? Nope. Did you get your dick in your own ass because you were reprimanded over a concern that your creepy ass party was getting out of hand because y'all couldn't take care of your shit? Welp.

How do cosplayers come up with their "cosplay name"? I've seen some people that use their real name, some people that use Japanese words, and some people that use completely random word combinations. I was wondering what's best when coming up with a cosplay name?

Also, what website/social media platform is best for creating a cosplay page?

I've been to one meet up where she was in attendance. Didn't really talk to her but when introductions were happening her cool fact about herself was that 'cgl hates her'.
>>
>>9720957
She's not wrong though. Cgl does hate her.

Idk, call me a bit bad for her but it seems like people hate her for no real reason. She's never scammed or actually done anything, and she even said in a few threads that she was ashamed of the way Kelly acted. She never did anything to seem like she really wanted attention, she didn't even enter the kawaii.i contests, but because her posts get a lot of likes anons hate her. It seems kind of unfair.
>>
>>9720990
I actually don't care about her but the way she introduced herself left a bad taste in my mouth. Anyway plenty of people get undeserved hate on this website, at least she has some stans out there trying to defend her. There are people who get shit on much worse.

I would talk to your comm organizers. Meet them for coffee and say it in person so they can read your body language. That's not a healthy thing for your group and everyone that can do something about it ought to know.
