No don't bulk up your legs, it's not worth it. You'll NEVER have skinny legs again.
I did track and cross country for 8 years, and my legs are fucking tree trunks. I can't get rid of them. Even if I don't exercise for a while, my legs don't decrease in size, they just lose muscle definition.
Skinny femboy legs are so pretty anon, count your blessings.

>>
>>9752217
Dont know if that anon is actually in this thread but if the wreath wasnt squishing the wig to his head I think it would really up the overall look for the cosplay.

I think quality of costumes is super important, and having a nice costume can lend more to the crossplay illusion

Ever been to a con that was forced to close, either after its first couple years or being put out of its misery? What are your good or bad memories of these doomed cons?

I've been to Shumatsucon, a tiny, ~800-person con in Columbus, for two years. Programming was always garbage, and the dealer's room was six booths across, but it had a surprisingly good game room, with a huge variety of new deck building games. Unfortunately, it sat between Ohayocon and Matsuricon in the same city, and three other same-size cons within 50 miles in a three-month period. It lasted for three years before they pulled the plug this year.

I am almost with you on this one, but my window is very small and like 1910-1915 when shirt-blouses and more chic day-wear was in vogue. The early century stuff is just too "much" as a whole with the s-line shape and excessive busty bouffant and frill. The early stuff is very top heavy with leg-o-mutton as well. I posted the >>9785788 example which is late enough to shy away from the things I'm not crazy for.

I do like your pics dress type as well as this one, and the belts, hats, hair-styles (but with more fringe) and shoes of the period.

>>9792525

Its just an incorrect meme that wont go away. "high" tea makes it sound classy so the assumption continues when in actuality its an old type of late-evening tea meant to replace a proper supper for the poorer classes.
>>
>>9792588
True. I'm planning my best friend's wedding and she wants an afternoon tea after the ceremony, but the caterers I'm talking to refuse to call it anything but "high tea" even after I explain the difference. I've pretty much given in and started calling it high tea too, because that's become the term to use when you really want afternoon tea. Every time I call it afternoon tea (also for lolita meetups) the restaurant/caterer just gets confused and asks if I mean high tea.

Maybe it's because I've done a lot of volume (probably ~300 sales in five years), but I've had a decent amount of problems. People rarely read the TOS, even if I post it everywhere, including the item description. I think it's worse on LM than it was on LJ because people just click "bid" or "buy" without reading anything, whereas people used to have to comment or message me in detail beforehand.
>>
>>9792687
I’m >>9792629 and have over 600 sales in 6 years. You’re just not making sure they read it. That’s is on you to make sure they read and understand your terms. It’s annoying to say “ If you have read and understand my ToS and still are wanting to finish this sale. Let me know what your pay pal is to send the invoice to. Sending me the address for payment is you agreeing to the terms stated in my ToS” it’s you making sure they know you have rules. When they send you the payment, you send it out and give them the tracking. Then tell them “ this is the tracking for while it is in the United States. You did not pay for full tracking so once it leaves U.S customs, it will not track any more”

Small inconvenience but if they then say “ oh I don’t want it” it’s not hard to relist for buyer backing out.
>>
>>9792722
Oh, I do. Doesn't stop them from pitching a fit with the mods or trying to roast me here or online. It's just not worth it, imo.
>>
>>9792736
Suit your own. It’s not hard to shop international if you’re willing to provide. I have found that opening up your sales to an international market really shortens the length your stuff is listed. Helps with getting rid of things fast. But I get it that some people don’t want to deal with the hastle of keeping receipts of your sales and interactions to despute when the buyer becomes a twat in your feedback.
>>
>>9792722
Nah. I work for an online shopping app - if you ask if someone read something they'll just lie and say they did and then throw a tantrum when they get something they didn't want.

Begin by doing your fucking homework you lazy ass, go and do the research. Thots be crazy, first they buy ready made cosplays instead of making them now they want people to tell them what to cosplay instead of choosing themselves, how much more lazy can you get lol

Excluding "glomping" candidates such as adorable mascots like Pikachu or costumes that simply show off the physique of the owner (for example, an attractive woman wearing Leeloo's infamous costume from The Fifth Element)?

What are some costumes that you've seen get plenty of female attention solely on the costume or character?

Bisexual man here.
I usually do crossplays, and the reactions when I get found out are very different - girls tend to get much more enthusiastic about it than guys. Seems to be mostly the air of a guy they don't have to feel threatened by as far as I can tell, so not really something for flirting if that's your goal (which I'm guessing it is).

I'd like to cosplay some non-canon yaoi shipped couple some day and make out on the con floor just to see the fujo's reactions.

All of this my good anon

I'm so tired of going to conventions because the only anime costumes you will ever see are Love Live from girls who never even watched the show/played the game but just thought the dresses were flashy and kawaii. I'm so fucking sick of capeshit, disney princesses, overwatch and random westshit fad of the season.
>>
>>9792090
Yeah, I go to cons on the east coast/southeast and I see more MHA than Naruto. I used to see a lot more a few years ago, but now it's all MHA or Love Live as far as anime goes.

I'm probably a minority here since I'm a member of a buy/sell makeup group on Facebook anyway but I don't think it's a problem if the returned products are being used as testers. I thought that's what Sephora did with their returns too. The testers have to get resanitized on a regular basis anyway and the customer should know to proceed with anything open to the general public with caution.

There's no way for Ulta to win this though. If they continue selling the returned products, then people will stop shopping there. If they change their return policy so nothing can be brought back to the store once it leaves or is opened then they'll lose a lot of potential customers since there's pressure to make the 100% correct choice on a product you're trying for the first time.

No one has to sell it to you. If you want UV rays to prematurely age you, go right ahead. The rest of us will be wearing sunscreen.
>>
>>9791755
>>9792179
People need to stop thinking of sun protection as hiding from 'light' or 'heat.'
It's a very strong form of radiation that is blasting you at all times, indoors or otherwise.

Wearing sunscreen every day is literally the same as applying a second layer of moisturizer. If that's a big commitment to you, I can't imagine how you could possibly function in real adult life.

I'm quite fond of my beard however there is a limited amount of bearded characters to cosplay as, especially in anime. Is it acceptable to cosplay a non bearded character with a beard or am i suppose to just shave before every con?

Yes, but in this case brand in Japanese is literally burando (ブランド). It's a borrowed word. Comparing cat to chat is similar, though neither is probably borrowed. A better example would be the word baguette or lingerie in French and English.

wow. what a dick. Burando is a loan word from English. it's not a mistake, it's a word in Japanese that is of English origin. Like karaoke or bologna...which you could say we pronounce as a mistake, but it's not, it's a loan word that English speakers have made their own.

>>9792110 is right. these assholes are revealing their true ignorant thoughts. they're the ones in the wrong. as usual.
