I’m looking to buy just the hat part of Kankuro’s outfit. But everywhere I look it only comes in the whole set which I don’t need. Anyone know where I can find what I’m looking for? Thanks!

Could someone elaborate on the acrylic caulk / water method vs bondo?

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?

Depending on your college situation, if you wanted to get some kind of business started (if you haven’t already) you can arrange your degree to take classes and gain what you will need to fund your way.

Dropping out of college/quitting work if you haven’t even made a name for yourself and your business yet will be a problem. And relying solely on commission money can be a problem as depending on the cost and time you will spend on the commission you might not be making the same amount every month, which can be hard to manage as you need to be making a certain amount to live.

My recommendation to you would if you absolutely don’t want to be in college anymore, find yourself a decent full/part time job in which you can at least get the baseline amount of money you will need to make to survive from month to month. Then (if you haven’t) start up your commission business and if you are gaining more requests and making more money, you could possibly cut down your hours at work in the day to spend more time on commissions. and if it doesn’t work, you can always go back to college later.

I hope this helps OP <3

This. Starting your own business of any kind is a high risk pathway; before doing anything like this, you should always establish some form of financial safety net first.

If your work is good, put yourself out there that you're open to commissions. Honestly, it sounds like a horrible idea, find a decent job that pays the bills and have spending money for tools and such before just going off the deep end and hoping you can get by doing commissions.
>>
>>9908947
Get a part time job, and continue doing that hobby on the side until you're confident it can be a career. Right now your dreams sounds like a bail option if you haven't worked out how much of a sustainable income it can be.
>>
As already stated, if you drop out of vegetable psychologics, advanced horsefart dynamics or creative pottery science, drop out and pursue your dream because you shouldnt study that for a living in the first place since a degree in that is worth less than a handwritten note from your alcoholic boss at target.

Its still a super bad decision to rely on sales you dont have right now and customers you will or will not acquire in the future.

I know it's a smaller con, but Ichibancon in Concord, NC has been hell for parking the past few years. Even with an overflow lot (across a four lane highway, no less) it's really bad. They've gotten way too big for their venue, but either can't or won't move for reasons I don't remember.

I remember trekking through the snow in spandex because I'm bad at planning weather appropriate attire. Also ended up pretty much just sitting around bored with a friend.

Also kind of off topic but it was the first time I'd ever been to Izumicon, is it usually worth going to?

There's a time and a place where mixing mainstream fashion brands and J-fashion makes sense; sometimes it's because of fit issues, sometimes there are problems with importing and sometimes you're just looking for more options, perhaps even the luxury of getting to try something out in person before committing to buying it.

Please name-drop your favorite brands to mix back in with J-fashion, or if there's a particular item available out there that just really, really seems to jam well with a specific J-fashion style. Extra points for pictures and Coord ideas.

Here are some to start:
>Kate Spade New York (novelty-themed handbags, shoes and jewelry that is often released in themed seasonal collections)
> Irregular Choice (Hyper-artistic shoes that are richly detailed, themed and limited edition collaborations with Disney and other companies)
>American Duchess (Historically accurate shoes, including models from the 1700s, Victorian and Edwardian eras)

You forget that many people who have been wearing lolita a while are now in their 30’s and up. Misako is in her thirties. Many lolita designers are 40’s and up. So mid-fifties doesn’t seem that old to many. It’s subjective.

Sorry/not-sorry to disappoint you but not everyone thinks Metro's chess match is the magical epitome of Florida performing arts. I could cite multiple reasons from professional theater experience but you wouldn't care. Enjoy your kool-aid and don't forget to tear up during the love-in at the end of the con.

I couldn't wait to get off the chess board. Nick Fazio is a creeper who can't keep his hands to himself and Alex's insufferable ego is unbelievable. Watching the two of them bicker was the highlight of my Metro days. Have fun busting your ass for literally nothing. I prefer getting paid to perform and actually having an audience.

It is. I've been to Super a few times. I don't go anymore because it's a long drive I don't feel like making when I can save my money for Holiday Matsuri.

my partner and I do 3 inch holo bug and reptile stickers and they sold really well for 4$ each at Anime North. We actually sold out of our geckos.
as a customer I wouldn't ever pay more than $4 for a sizable non-holo sticker, and it'd have to be pretty baller art. My partner likes big weatherproof stuff for her car when she can get it and tends to pick those up whatever the price.

The nice thing is that all of that art prep will carry over to your next con. You only have to make as much new art as you feel up to for each con from now on (+ reorder stuff when needed, as well as looking into new products once in a while )

I'm surprised you have such a big difference between your contacts and glasses, do your glasses sit quite far out from your eyes/you have quite prominent features? Mine is only 0.75 difference but I have a flat Asian nose

>>9904795
that’s not necessarily true, my contact and glasses prescription is the same
and i’m -6.00

I was wondering if anyone could recommend me some bright blue eye contacts to use for Aigis? Pretty much all the ones I've seen are either dark blue, or more natural colored. I wanted something more bright and unnatural to reflect that she's a robot.

Opticianon here!

>>9895160
Pinky Paradise and most online lens companies are already operating illegally anyway, they don't actually give a fuck about your prescription. It's all to give them the appearance of attempting to actually follow the law so they can cover their own asses if you sue.

I wouldn't recommend getting lenses without a prescription if you've only worn glasses and never had your base curve measured (even for plano) but you do you anon.

>>9904791
Glasses prescriptions aren't always the same power as contact lens prescriptions and they don't include a base curve measurement, so they aren't interchangeable. You can give it your best guess and possibly end up with contacts that don't work for you, or...you can just get fitted properly and not have to worry about ordering the wrong size or power.

>>9906000
Higher prescriptions are much more sensitive to the distance between the glasses + eye than lower ones. For example, -22.00 rx might be -17.00 in contacts but a -0.50 can wear -0.50 in contacts with no problems.

>>9906800
What colour are your eyes, anon? Maybe try something like the Princess Pinky Twilight Blue? (pic related) They aren't that big and show up pretty brightly on brown eyes but look dull on blue/green eyes.
>>
>>9904791
Then I'll rephrase it. I'm a -2.25 and -2.50 so don't listen to me unless you also have a low prescription I guess.

They should do these type of bodies that overlays a shadow on the face more often, it looks great. I think it's possible to do in AB too since they also use detailed shading+bodies can go over faces.
