This happened to me once. It was a time where Vicky was super angry at me to the point she didn't want to reply anymore because all the charms designs weren't the same size. In the end, the bigger one ended up being super big. No complains tho.
>>
>>9920874
Geez lol I feel bad for vograce dealing with you guys. No wonder they're swamped. Next time, if your charms are all intended to be different sizes, make a guide for them, like a height chart for your charms. Two red lines indicating how tall each one should be in relation to each other will help them a lot and save time.

Well tbf the fair is in October and often open on Halloween. It’s Arizona and it’s still hot around that time so the lack of embellishments makes sense. It’s defiantly not her best, but not horrid.

>>9920536
C you know you’re ita, stop trying to say it’s a newbie. There’s plenty of people who think you dress like shit. Although this is one of your better outfits, it’s not far fetched to say you dress poorly. You experiment too much. Maybe tone it back and keep it a little basic? Your hair really brings down a lot of your coordinates. You need to find a better style because right now it looks like you have cold spaghetti on your head.

Also this might have been posted by the girl that was recently banned from the comm since she has nothing to fear any more given the boot and all.
>>
>>9921190
Not C. Look at the original poster:
>"my mods"
> :(
>posting as if they'd never been talked about before
>calling H ita

C'mon. This screams of newfag. We know C is almost always ita, but H has always put together really nice cords. Whoever is posting this clearly doesnt know the comm dynamics well
>>
>>9921282
Considering how many members from the comm regularly come here and are known posters to this board, I wouldn’t be shocked if it’s a regular in the comm. but obviously you lack in reading comprehension because >>9921190 didn’t say OP was C and states that H wasn’t ita and usually dresses fine and that the coord in the image isn’t the best representation of H. But the coord isn’t bad considering she was at the state fair and casually dressed. C can’t causal dress herself out of the closet let alone make a actual decent coord. But I’m really guessing it was what’s her face who got banned a few weeks back. Makes sense for her to do something like this since she does come here often.

Nah, no one to consult. My parents believe I'll never make it to uni and their response to any requests for advice is always, "Ha. If you can make it." So...Yeah. I'll check it out if the teacher that is supposed to guide me is willing to do it anytime soon. She's been postponing it for the past 1.5 years.

Thank you anon, I won't give it up. But I need to decide on what to major on soon and I'm still very lost.

How bad of an idea is it to drop out of college to pursue a career in designing and building cosplay gear?
I've been making props and things for a few years now, but a big barrier to me has been time and money. If i just worked a dead end job to earn enough money to aquire tools and material for 6 months, would i be able to at least pay rent by being commissioned?

If you really want to make costume props for a living I wouldn't recommend sticking solely to cosplay. I say this because cosplay is a very niche market and even if your work gets noticed within the scene, your sales will depend a lot on how popular cosplay is at the moment. I would suggest looking into making props for a local theatre or something like that for now, and starting the cosplay business as a side thing.
>>
If it doesn't support you as a side hobby, it won't support you as a full time job. The literal only circumstance in which I'd recommend dropping out of school for this is if you were getting swarmed with so many commission requests that you couldn't keep up with them.
>>
Better to focus on a major or trade that will help develop skills that could be used in the real world but still work in cosplay like fabrication, theater tech, carpentry etc
>>
College is kind of a fuckin scam but while what it provides is expensive, it can be VERY necessary. I would advise going to school but building your skills over time, take a commission every now and then maybe.
>>
>>9908947
>How bad of an idea is it to drop out of college to pursue a career in designing and building cosplay gear?
depends on how artistic and good with your hands you are.
try and find a job that will get you bank, like serving at a nice restaurant for tips, or mail sorting/warehouse/telemarket stuff that is difficult but compensates well because it's tiresome work. work more than one job, build up savings.

if you are not skilled and don't have a good enough eye for crafts, def stay in school. you can always go on leave and return to school if it doesn't pan out. you're young so you have options and flexibility

Is there any good way to "shade" cosplay clothing so that it appears darker/lighter in certain areas?

Pic related. Would love to get the epic darker areas of the costume down without needing a perfect lighting setup.

Bought the cosplay from Amazon from Cosplaysky on Saturday. Expected to be here from the 25th to 28th, paid with the faster shipping.

Literally arrived today. It's great but I do need new gloves, and the pants are fucking massive (not a big deal though, I might be able to get away with normal black pants / jeans).
>>
>>9919351
I'm glad it came it quickly, anon! If you're not planning on using them anyway, you might be able to alter the pants. What's wrong with the gloves?
>>
>>9918421
How heavy is it and can it be sanded? If it's really light a shit ton of spirit gum on the bottom should be enough to hold.

>>9918519
I don't see why you can't just make a bodysuit and have the whole tabard sewn down, dangling part and all? Just make sure it's stretched out when you sew it on and interface the shit out of it, and use a heavier material with a zip up the back.
I definitely would not recommend using worbla for the hat. It's a waste since it wouldn't be strong enough on it's own without foam anyways. Use thick cardstock or Eva to make the hat base and cover in fabric.

Bit of a weird question here.

So I've bought the pictured elbow pads, which I am going to use as a base to built off of for some bracers for a costume so that I can mount stuff on it and not have the whole thing slide up and down my arm at cons.

But I'm considering making the parts of the pad below look more like leather so that it blends into the aesthetic of the costume (Bondrewd the Novel, so think steampunkish and you wont be far off).

So here's what I'm thinking: spray the whole thing down with a layer of plastdip as a sealant, use balled up tin foil to create an uneven texture, and then paint the whole thing brown and touch it up with shoe polish for weathering.

Is that at all likely to turn pic related into something leathery looking? Or is that just an awful idea and I should let the black nature of the padding fall into the background and keep a low profile?

I've been to the ninja cafe and sparkling potpourri.
Sparkling potpourii has changed a bit. Instead of choosing a few things from the menu, there are combination meals you can choose.
Each table also has their own maid who will serve you during your stay to give you a more personal experience or something.

The ninja cafe was new at the animecon. Though they have a maid cafe in Akihabara.
It's basicly a maid cafe but with the girls dressed as ninjas intead of maids.
They had a very small menu but the maids/ninjas would write down your name in hiragana or katakana in chocolate and draw cute stuff.
It was nice.
>>
>>9917389
The ninja one sounds cool! And how did you like the changes of SP? I checked their menu and while it seems okay, I'm personally more of a fan of a la carte, but if it works... I'm all for the Dutch con cafes getting better and more professional
>>
>>9917510
I liked the changes.
Now that there are more and more maid café popping up, sparkling potpourri is no longer THE maid cafe of the Dutch cons.
Everyone can buy a few maid dresses and sell lemonade and roze koeken bought at the sligro.
With these changes SP can differentiate itself a bit from the other maid cafés.
I liked it how the food was based of anime figures or other cute stuff.
Looking at the flyer I brought with me they sold stuff totoro, pikachu or pink bunny cupcake, and a kitty donut.
The menu is a bit small right now but I hope it expands at future cons.
