What do you expect from this year's con?
6 replies and 1 image omitted. Click here to view.
I’m super hyped for this year actually, planning to enter this in the cosplay contest
The Ren Cen has some good near future aesthetics, and Mariners church is exactly what it sounds like. There’s also the shoreline that has some good spots too. I’ve used the people mover as well, but you need to be quick about it at off hours.
rencen all booked up and no reduced rates for crown ? do they come in later or are they just not offering this year ..
Crowne has a con rate. You might have to call to get it. Marriott ren cen still has king rooms last I heard
The con rate is there, it's just a really bad rate.

Hatsume Fair begins tomorrow (technically today), who's going?
Future cons?
Cosplayer/contest drama?

i'd say it's a fact rather than a stretch. FL cons are full of normies and FL general is no exception to that
That's putting it mildly.
Someone posted mine and I felt embarrassed at how shitty the commission job was. Never again.
i don't blame anyone on here for not posting their cosplays, 'gulls are pricks when it comes to other cosplayers.

what's your worst florida con experience? could be from mega, or super, doesn't matter. just has to be a florida con.

Metrocon's chess match is actually the best I've seen so far, it blows Anime Boston's and Fanime's away.
>caring this much about Metro
I wonder who you are then. The One Who cheated on Kelsey King or the one who got his Dick sucked at the sex party that Nick and Alex threw.
HAHAHA! Oh MetroCon, never change. I can see the chess match still gives preteens an inflated sense of self. I got tired of watching fatties flail around onstage with Party City wigs.

If you have deep set eyes (frog eyes) don't use dark eye shadow.
But anon, frog eyes bulge outwards. Thats the total opposite
What's a recommend contouring kit/set for crossplay that won't make my wallet cry?
same but for darker skin

Can we have a thread for gothic coords where the main piece/the majority of the coordinate isn't black? I'm especially interested in purples/wines if you've got 'em, but anything is welcome.

That's dusty rose, not pastel. You are colour-blind.
Dress is gothic, rest is sweet.
Holy man face
I hate how every single gothic thread involves so much bitching about what is or isn't gothic. The distinction between substyles is not cut and dry, and essentially boils down to a feeling they evoke which is highly subjective. Some brands/cuts/prints/colors/themes/whatever are obviously more geared toward evoking the gothic feel, but something can have both sweet(or classic) and goth traits and still belong in a thread like this. Nobody gives a shit if a coord isn't gothic enough according to your personal tastes.
Yup, RazorBladeKisses

Their music hurt to listen to, and they weren't exactly popular in the egl community. They still have a couple of vids on youtube.

Some of the outfits were kinda cool though, once they'd polished their look.

IW White is a fantastic source for casual lolita:
The pieces they're offering so far are modeled after some of their main label's popular designs, they're made of lightweight fabric and are super easy to wear and take care of, plus the prices are laughable for brand new brand.
Heart E and Putumayo were great for affordable and casual jfashion but they went out of business
Putumayo is fairly easy to find secondhand and it's affordable iirc. Heart E is more difficult to find but it's quite cheap when you do find it.
Am I wrong and this isn't what you're referring to? They look like they are still open to me.
FYI jill-punk sells some replicas.

How are Shinobu and Canary "ambiguously brown" when they've got completely black/african-looking phenotypes?

Also, Alyx Vance isn't ambiguous at all. She's black and asian.

Shinobu's nationality is never mentioned. She could just as easily be Indian, South East Asian, or Aboriginal.

>completely black/african-looking phenotypes
For the most part, Black people don't have gray eyes and purple hair.

>Alyx Vance
Alyx is ambiguously brown enough for her parents to have been any ethnicity without changing the character design at all and it would still fit.

With your race and body type, OP, this character came to mind. He's fucking radical and FMA:B is super iconic.

I really hated her dub voice, holy fuck. She sounded blacker in Japanese.
That's a white guy. So it's off limit for black cosplayers.

How do I enjoy myself at weeb cons when taking normie friends? Every time we go to one, we check out the merchandise stands and then leave after a few hrs since they arent interested in any of the other shit. Feels like I'm missing out.

they'll at worst give you a BS brushoff answer or at best invite you to a panel / room party.

Anyone have experience with whitening lotions? A friend and I plan on cosplaying 2b and Antacticite. Apparently this was the best whitening lotion back in 2016, but has anyone tried any other brands with good results? Or are you better off with just really good makeup? I have fairly light skin already but her skin is a bit darker.

i love the klairs all over lotion, i even use it on my face to so its a good deal. if you are still dry and can go to a lush, i love their sleepy cream or dream cream (if you prefer no scent). for body moisturizer, im sure aveeno or cetaphil has body sunscreen which should work generally fine,
Most of these have a white component that stays visible after it is absorbed into the skin. Leaves the skin looking like skin instead of make-up smashed on top, and helps hiding blemishes and such while also making your skin look a bit lighter. It's more to add a luminous pale look, and won't make a dark skin white (I'm not even sure what a white layer would do on top of very dark skin honestly).

That being said, I love them and they make my skin look great. I generally use one with SPF50+ in it on my face every day (I've got too much tattoos to put it on my arms, so I use normal sunscreen there). I don't wanna tan, look bad with it, so it's great to have it both in one product. I find applying SPF and whitening lotion separatly is a bit inconvenient.
Which ones do you use and where do you buy it? SPF50 does sound very convenient.
Has anyone tried the Chica y Chico Nude Fantasy Whitening Cream? It has good reviews on yesstyle
My favorite is Crystal White Milky Sun Cream by 3W CLINIC. That's the one with SPF50++ and it also has niacinamide. I use it on my face every day. Just ordered a few more.

I also tried Snow White Milky by Secret Key. It's ok. I later switched to G9SKIN White In Creamy Pack as it's much more smooth and unlike the Secret Key one it didn't have the tendency to leave little flake-like spots. I used G9SKIN White In Whipping Cream (which is thicker) for when I really needed more, but because it's thicker it tends to flake a bit more easy too (flaking especially happens on babyhair sometimes. Gotta keep them eyebrows epilated). EYENLIP Pure Perfection Natural Sun Cream also has some slight whitening component, but not as much. It's not labeled as whitening anyways, but it's a nice sunscreen.

I import my stuff directly from Korea. Just search for Korean stores that ship beauty products overseas.

Hoping to see more cosplays now that season 2 is out! Also do guys ever even cosplay Cat Noir?

Honestly, I'm more mad about Chat Noir's weird head and arms, but I really don't understand why people look to Sakimichan for good anatomy because, no. God no.
She can't even mirror right.

On the 17th. Where Adrien finds out about Mari's stalker shrine.
Her outfit was made out of some kind of fabric though.

While I don't like the white splotches of fake shine, this print is probably the closest we will get to an authentic looking suit. Handmaking anything better than this would be incredibly hard.
Okay, I nominate you.

No one is going to want to post their account since the amount of salt in the thread is approaching critical mass.
I’ll bite. @uchuubun, I do a lot of idol cosplay at the moment but I want to do some more magical girl stuff soon among other things

It’s pretty empty since I archived all my posts the other week, I was unhappy with it being a mess of mobage, magical girl toys, and one selfie every con or so. Really want to steer my account into being more “professional” with shoot photos and pictures from photogs at cons. And if you like seeing WIP stuff, I post story updates while I’m working on costumes!

I’ll probably be posting Yui pics for a while though since it’s all I really have to work with OOPS

Thank you, yours is too

Should people particapating in nanchate go for a more realistic vibe with their uniforms? Or is it okay to be costumey as long as its cute?

Where is the best place to get school uniform and school uniform esk clothes?

Should seifukus classify as being apart of nanchate or does their need to be more effort put in to a nanchate coord?.

This looks like it's going to be expensive af. I'm better off buying a basic bike from decathlon or something like that. I do like bikes like these that have a basket and no metal bar(?) Going straight between the wheels
thoughts on uniqlo? there's one near me that i've never visited but for the cost, I worry it might be sort of cheap..
LOL Eastboy put out bicycles every season also along with their newest uniform collection. This is fairly common with common Seifuku labels Let me find it so I can compare.
Uniqlo has stuff for nanchatte?
Lots of students go there for sweaters and shirts. It's fast fashion, but it's better quality and more versatile than F21.

Other fashions that incorporate kimono are also welcome

Any recommendations about cutting kimonos up to make onepieces? I got a few pieces that are stained beyond help, was thinking of cutting them up to make into dresses but I don't really know where to start.

I found this person who made a dress out of her kimono and she talks about never washing the dress again. I'll be starting with cotton fabric at least, but now I wonder if the Mirufu pieces are washable as well.
