This is really funny because I was around to watch mods repeatedly delete feels threads and explaining that they weren't jfash or cosplay related and would do much better on another board.

It's the gulls who repeatedly created feels threads until the mods let them stay.

So I'm kind of not really surprised the jannies ignore reports on feels threads. You have your sempais to thank for making feels thread a constant thing on cgl.

I think it sounds fun but i'm not sure what really leads to that. Is is just your partner asking? It seems really strange pretending to be something else during something so intimate.
>>
OP here. Saw this thread just saved from saging or whatever. Let me clarify some things.
>She's a bad person for leaving you.
She wanted me to be more social and I tried. But in general I don't mesh well with other cosplayers. Partly my own fault for being an autist but dear god there are some stuck up, elitist cosplayers. It was just really intimidating going to a con. I don't blame my GF for hanging out with them. She asked if I was okay and I asked if I could wander off for a bit to go to the Witcher panel (MISTAAAAKE!) We were both tired and in a bad mood from heatstroke. Trust me she made it up to me later.

I would never use my anxiety to get attention. I only tell others who have also come out saying they have social anxiety as support.

Also, even though I said earlier that I like wearing j-fashion because I can tell myself people are staring at the outfit and not me, I wish everyone could dress up. I find it so boring that people just walk outside with jeans and a t-shirt every day. I know it's not for everyone, but it would be nice if people just dressed up some of the time.
>>
>>9993309
Honestly, i feel like the people who do suddenly spew about their anxiety dont think theyre doing it for attention either because theyre so oblivious. But of course with this generation of uber support and tumblr mentality, anytime someone mentions ‘muh anxiety’ people swarm to support. So these people think that ctually have support and find it socially acceptable to just word-vomit their personal problems when really no one wants to be seen as a dick for not addressing it. It just feeds into itself.

Where I live, literally everyone says they have anxiety. It doesn't really get you attention anymore so much as it just makes you part of the norm.

>at the end of the most latest part we see Mari hallucinating, implying she was the one who needed the antipsychotics and not Rita
You need to maybe work on your attention to details, anon. We know for sure they're Rita's, the prescription bottle that Spencer found had Rita's name on it. Moreover we literally saw her taking them earlier (and deciding to stop after she read the side effect of increased menstrual cramps while she was on the toilet suffering from them.)

Mari is hallucinating because, if you'll recall, "what part of severe brain trauma is daijobu?"
>>
>>9992025
I mean, the whole show takes place over like three days so far so if she's bipolar in a manic state then we would not have had a chance to see her in a depressive state. Except maybe that flashback to when she is crying on her dad's shoulder sometime in the recent past.

I assume my legs are unusually cold-proof. I normally only wear a pair of regular 60den tights all winter. If it gets really cold (minus 15°C or colder) and I have to be outside for longer than 30mins, I might switch to thermo-tights, but that rarely happens.
It's the single advantage of having chubby legs, I guess.
>>
>>9981214
that looks incredibly good
>>
For any oldschool anons, what do you like to do for legwear in the winter? I normally just wear lace topped socks, but I'm moving to a colder country soon and I'm not sure how to preserve that oldschool look while still keeping warm. Would knit tights seem off?
>>
>>9992549
Fleece lined tights or just tights under socks. Knit tights would certainly work in some oldschool coords but probably not all.
>>
As a velveteen lover I find winter is the best season for me. It just sucks that the fabric is naturally heavy and warm because it seems like winter and late fall/early spring are the only times I can practically wear velvet.

Let's share comfy images, feels, stories about anything /cgl/ related. Could be about your first con, a particularly nice day you had wearing lolita or cosplay, finding your dream dress, etc. Cosplay and jfash are equally welcome, as long as your posts are comfy!

They only sell their items at events within Japan (and sometimes Hong Kong). You're better off stalking their twitter and getting a SS to go in person to grab what you want. Although they don't always show what they're bringing. When they go to smaller events, it looks like they don't bring much. If you're aiming to get one of their more iconic pieces you're better off waiting till design festa in November.

Have you ever noticed a Lolita within the community that, despite having a full coordinate, does simply not suit it? Why did it not look good?
>Not necessarily to do with the person being ugly or fat
I've met several Lolitas that seemed almost completely detached from their outfit and the community. It didn't seem like their outfit, it looked like they were dressed up for the day.

This is me, too. I've only tried sweet, maybe gothic or ouji would be a better choice for me. I feel like I'm trying to fit into my tastes when I was younger, and I still like cute things, but I certainly have had a personality shift over time and even dress less girly in normie clothes.

you can buy a woman's piece of clothing and just pad it, or you can have one custom made for example here: https://www.cosplayshopper.com/

For 15 bucks extra they'll customize it your specifications and you can specify either male or female fit

>that includes this thread also then
Nayrt, but yes, it does. /cgl/ didn't and to some extent still doesn't like. It got slightly better after the crossplay general thread established, but generally it is wiser not to mention you're a guy (unless you're f.e. greentexting some stories and mentioning crossdressing is necessary for context).


>>9993702
>How does one translate mens measurements to women's clothing.
You don't even try to translate fixed clothing sizes, because it's almost certain that they'll look ill-fitting since there are no standards how sizes should fit. Get a measuring tape, properly measure your height, shoulder width, bust, underbust, arm length, waist, hips and leg/inseam leg.

The only size that may include some trial and error is the shoe size. Measure your foot length (heel to big toe), the width around the ball of your foot, and try to find a pair that fits. Foot width is important if you have big feet and need wide sizes.

Thats why a started a cosplay community in my state. So far it's just for photos but it's helped me meet more people at least in driving distance and I've started getting together with others. Hoping to start organizing craft nights but it's hard when I don't have a space. All in good time.

Why kill myself trying to make everything? There's nothing wrong with store bought if you make an effort to make it look good.
