/cgl/ is a board for the following:

• Cosplay
• Lolita
• J-fashion
• Conventions & gatherings
• Sewing & prop-making
• Craftsmanship tools/materials & tutorials
• LARPing
• Discussing accessories such as wigs/circle lenses/prosthetics/makeup (These must be within the context of the board-related topics listed above; weight loss threads should be kept in /fit/, beauty and fashion generals should be kept in /fa/)

Our board rules are simple:

• Thread content must be related to one of the categories covered in the list above. Off-topic threads and replies will be deleted.
• Singling people out maliciously is not tolerated and will result in a ban. 4chan is not your personal army. The singling out rule applies to vendetta threads and replies being made to attack a specific person, as well as predatory behavior like doxing. Discussing an individual in general isn't against the rules as long as it's done within context of cosplay/lolita/j-fashion.

Yeah, my idea is a matron nurse kind of look with a lot of flesh and grime. It wouldn't even be too far out of the themes of SH2.

Same. I wanted to try Urd a decade ago but I just do not have the boobs for it.

Same with Pirotess from Lodoss War.
Ugh I bet we're not in the same country but otherwise I would so try to cosplay with you
It's always the same. The short cute girls want to be the sexy bombshells and the sexy bombshells want to be short cute and flat.

>See those look lovely, but they also don't look like they have enough ankle heel or arch support to run around the woods in armour safely.
And here am I with these shoes spent 3 years running around the woods in armour safely, sometimes ankle deep in mud too...

This is true. It's much easier to make japanese larp tier armour (may or may not from alternative materials not from steel) then european breastplates and such.
It's a little more time consuming but not as much as making a chainmail, plus the fact that most of the japanese armours were... varnished? lacquered? whatever it is it makes way more room in making it look believable
>I'm seriously considering getting a spear or something, and breaking rules on hard hits, and just jamming it into people. I'd like to see them ignore a hit that staggers them.
you would be surprised how much people can ignore hits.
I mean there was a guy who was shoved backwards at least a meter by his throat with a halberd and he still thought it wasn't a hit.
Back in ye olden days in Hungary when we weren't that nice the solution for people who were too creative on taking hits were hitting harder or throwing them into the Danube

>for countries where carrying blades in public is illegal, would it be a good idea to get a HEMA blunt smallsword as a costume sword? If so, who makes good ones?
well, in most countries it is illegal to carry blades in public. That doesn't stop most of us though...
Anyway I know from experience that Landsknecht Emporium makes pretty good blunt costume swords and on a good price. It's just takes forever to get one as other realized this too and he is swimming in orders...
By the way, why is it important if it's illegal or not carrying swords in public?

>why is LARP so much more heavily represented in this general than SCA?
because it is a LARP thread, not an SCA thread. And as surprising as it comes, those two are entirely different things.
>and he still thought it wasn't a hit.

Well, depending on the rules, since the face/head/neck often isn't a zone you're allowed to hit, people tend ignore hits there.

>throwing them into the Danube
To the appropriate background music, I hope?

god damn if Hungarian was in charge of throwing people into the Danube it would be skin colored not blue

This post here ain't /cgl/ related in the slightest so polite sage, but man I'm still fucking pissed Adult Swim passed up on Welcome to Eltingville

I will probably never forgive them for dropping that pilot so fast.

Now that i look back at it, i think they were trying to re-create the OP shots which explains alot of the music video style shots. I rather would have a single wide shot cover but I cam see what they were trying to achieve here.
Maybe she didnt have a choice. Like either shave your head or pay your contract. Plus some groups are funded by the mob. Just like in kpop.

She evidently has a fat face and holds all of her fat in her midsection but it's being squeezed together so you can't tell as easily.
The crowd (guys) sound better then the act!
Honestly that was really nauseating to watch... the dancing combined with those camera angles... urgh...
I think I remember this group having members bitching over another group doing Strawberry Trapper as well. Did any of you see that? I thought it was kind of funny but when I went back to get caps the people who bitched about it had already deleted posts.

Last one died so here we are again.

Less than a week until Perth Comic Con and 2 until Adelaide's.

Is your cosplay ready? Are you even going or has Doomtitty's appearance thrown you off?

Did anyone here cosplay at occ? I saw a small group of lolitas on Saturday that I thought may have included someone from here
Watched this without sound coz I like watching the way people physically move. So awkward.
Whoever Bonnie B cosplay is, she needs to learn to walk in heels or not wear such high ones coz maannn is she awkward on her feet.
Just, when people get on stage, why are they so damn boring? Seriously.
It depends on how entertaining the character itself is. Personally I found Kirilee's stage performance entertaining.
These cosplays are everywhere though. Nothing new there. Though definitely if they walk around in conventions wearing panties with less than a centimeter from exposing their vaginas then it seems like they're asking for "extra attention"

The shemagh doesn't go well with the armor? Huh only got positive reactions of it. Ill have to reevaluate it.
And yeah I wasn't able to do boot armor in time for the con. Working on it now though.
Thanks for taking the time to respond mate. Means a lot to me.
Love it, but maybe adjust the fit of the jacket and sleeves?
Materials and craftsmanship looks real mediocre. Must have not been up against much in the anime category. More a dig on the judges than you.
There's a trick by sandwiching layers of buckram using double sided fusible interfacing. If you knew, ignore me.
I didn't know/think of that! The ruff weighs a pound and the black surface is about 15" by 20. How much buckram would it take to stiffen the whole affair?

It's been fun! I started the weekend before the Twitch marathon, but the Twitch marathon has been a great motivator.

What I get from this post is that you're a bitter ugly weeb who thinks girls like pic related don't look sweet, cute and youthful. Lol
nayrt, but they really don't
Ayrt, they do. And their events are much more fun too.
If you're an extrovert who likes drinking and too much noise, sure
DESU I'm not particularly extrovert and I don't even drink but I still find it much more pleasant than a dumb crap "maid" acting like a prudish, unfriendly idiot following a script and expecting me to pay her for treating me like an idiot.

Its this character costume right?

It might be enough with just padding your waist a little bit. You already have a stronger upper body which goes a long way in this.
Are there any reccomended corsets that are not too expensive for MtF's? I got one cheap one from ebay to try it out last december but it barely did anything to shorten my waist.
Maybe try this wig:
Even if it's not a full beard? It's just a small goatee

Not that anon, but Herajika was my inspiration when I started in lolita. I know there was some incredibly stupid made up drama about her several years ago. Kinda sad that's likely a consideration in what drove her to go private because I truly love the not so matchy matchy style of her coords and her propensity to use unusual colours or items (especially hats) with her coordinates.
This so much, and it unfortunately extends beyond /cgl/ things
Pretty sure this only happens on tumblr unless you are a teenager /surrounded by teenagers

She probably feels good about doing something nice for a friend. Not accepting her kindness will take away her joy of giving her friend something nice.

silly chestlet, your jelly ain't stopping me from doing this

besides, have you looked at her at all? Her chest isn't even that small.
DVA's chest is in proportion to a small, slim body... Which Nigri does not have. She should stick to the curvy tit shows.
shocked i havent been banned yet. she is very "muh body positivity"
honestly not suprised. how is her personality IRL?

that might be the camera, but I fee like Im giving too much credit.
I have one of these so I can be a bitch to those who do this shit. Just do it anon. Its best to stop the lier before she starts to think she can get away with it more and more. It will save her from embarrassing herself later in the fashion.
Anon, >>9405142 is my only comment on the whole board in months... sorry I don't like shitty HL replicas I guess?

Yeah, I think most people gave up with lolita events at ACEN because it's too much of a hassle and the events are lackluster... Also, many people choose to cosplay over lolita. Usually there's a dinner meetup on Friday/Saturday at one of the restaurants nearby!

I think they might've gotten a better guest relations director? And they're working with JHouseRock to bring in Japanese guests under the Sony and UP-FRONT WORKS Co., Ltd. label

>tfw I want Asian Kung-Fu Generation to be a musical guest again
>tfw I want Asian Kung-Fu Generation to be a musical guest again
At least you're not one of the 5 people who like Ali Project.
Been going to ACen for 10 years and last year was one of the best for me. Pretty excited for this year, which is something I'm surprised to be saying about ACen.

Midwest does have an anime studio this year, and rumors suggest they're gonna have more than 1. I hope ACEN's big music guest is awesome this year.
This is gonna be the second year of Acen that I won't have any new cosplay :( Last year I started HRT and used it as a chance to wear a bunch of new cute clothes so it wasn't a big deal, but this year I ran outta time and money!

Opinions pls. Is it like, a shitty noob thing to recycle cosplay? Cus I really wanna dress up as something one day at least.

She shopped herself skinnier than Cure Peach.
The uncanny valley look just freaks me out.
