what are some easy cosplay ideas for /fit/ guys?
>easy cosplay
fishing for compliments
rocky from rocky horror picture show
any wrestler that only wears a speedo
chippendale dancer
magic mike
michael phelps (speedo, swim cap, giant bag of doritos, weed optional)
naked raiden from mgs
old spice guy
foxy grandpa
some character who wears a t-shirt and jeans
some character who wears pants only and maybe a hat
a mailbox
literally anything

Vintage is classier, cheaper, can be worn daily, and shares the same silhouette. A lot of lolita pieces are basically vintage clothes just with more cheap ribbon and lace slapped on.

Most lolitas I know wear vintage as their daily wear what is OP smoking
Underrated post right here
I love this... Anon, can you please please post a pic of the Gunne Sax dresses you own?
As someone active in the vintage/historical community, there's a lot of wank about prints, particularly Horrockses prints (that are currently being churned out by ASOS on awful polyester items). Real Horrockses prints are very close to the lolita aesthetic, though.
different strokes for different folks? no one in my community wear vintage for daily wear, it's more like normie or tumblr-kei

Hey, /cgl/, I want to make a cosplay of Queen Eclipsa - and I'm almost done with figuring out all the stuff I'll need - but I'm clueless when it comes to finding her hat.

What kind of hat is it? What would it be called?
Also, what, exactly, is the neck accessory she's wearing?

Thanks in advance.

Use a big summer hat for the base form,get bendable wire to shape it the way you want,cover the hat with material fabric the same color as her dress.
The neck piece just looks like a pulled up frill layer kept up by the black lace/ribbon (the neck piece ,white part ,might need custom work to stay up with sewing it should be do-able.
have fun :)

Alright gulls, even the fittest of us can benefit from some lifting and cinching. Spill your faves. Corsets, bodysuits, control tops, butt pads, spanx, whatever you got
>pic somewhat related?
Although apparently there’s a lawsuit of fatties upset that these waist cinchers aren’t making them look like celebrities who can afford to spend a small fortune on plastic surgery.

>I'm a fatty chan. (30 in waist)
That doesn't say much. 30" at ~5'10" isn't terrible, but 30" at 4'11's might be kinda bad, depending on how their built.
I'm 5' 4 with a 37 in bust and 38 in waist. By cgl standards I'm a fucking house.
>38 in waist
I hope that's a typo because that is the size of a fucking house

I'm not denying that women can have larger waists and builds, but 30 inches at 4"11 is very bad and very huge anon.
That is indeed a typo my bust is 38. Holy shit if my waist was 38 in I'd just give up on anything not made of cheap ass polyester and tears.

Your ego needs to be deflated just as much as the person you are arguing with BTW.
Ego? Where? I appreciate your advice, but my triangles worked out fine for me. They came out fine in photos as well, and I just found it more enjoyable to use. I'm not giving my opinion as a professional or anything like that, just from experience. There's no ego involved.

God forbid people be multifaceted and not dedicate every once of attention and income to one hobby.

I get being upset at people who put zero effort in, but if you're truly upset that people aren't being totally, wholly submissive to lolita and lolita only as a way of life, you're creepy and sad.

Again, you sound unhappy you can't afford the dress.

Besides that sounds fake as fuck. Chinese porn isn't even porn because of how harsh laws are in China.

i don't really understand, any time i've seen a lolita in the wild its been a welcome sight. i would think the same for anyone else who's in the fashion. i obviously know you dont automatically become ~~bestest frilly friends forever~~ just beause we're wearing the same fashion.

has anyone else had this happen to them?

It's not worth $700. It's not totally terrible but yea, definitely not worth that price
Its the waterproof thick plastic satin they make cheap shower curtains and table cloths out of. Its easy to wipe clean, which... I'm guessing is an intended feature.

Common sense would say that shirring with corset lacing is the best option of you fluctuate that much. Ditch the unshirred pieces for stuff you can wear more often.
Yeah, by 4lbs, not 30.

It's more that you mention you phase in and out of certain styles. So if you're "in" to one style and out of the other, you can pack up the style you're not currently into, wait until you're out of the other one and into this one again, and swap the entire style. It's not really that the clothes are available for you to in the same way it would be if you had it hanging in a seperate closet, it's more that you can swap entire style closets when you fall in and out of love with them.


That's how I didn't notice my weight fluctuating. I started wearing those more often, then had a shock one day when I realised I didn't really fit properly into a shirred dress the same way I used to.

Seriously though, don't worry about me. the fluctuations are more like I overate this year, and diet down to skinny next year. Working on keeping better track of my eating habits so I stop putting on weight, it's just this one spot in the year where we get really slammed at work and then my eating goes to shit. I'm trying out mealprep next year to see if it stops my weight fluctuating so much.

btw >>9716591 was my comment, >>9716805 isn't.

Since the last one had a few bits of Dota sprinkled through it we may as well group all of the ARTS games together to hopefully keep things maybe slightly more active.

I really want to attempt to cosplay Cyberpunk Zoe, but I'm clueless as to how I would make the wig work without it being five bajillion pounds. Does anyone have any suggestions? I was thinking maybe incorporating some type of ribbon for the green things, but I feel like that would look so bad..
