/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.

Share pics of horrible or insane shooped pics.

What are you thoughts on excessive photoshop in cosplay and/or lolita? Is it fine because it's part of the "art" or is it unrealistic and uncanny?
Have you ever met an excessive photoshopper in person?
Would finding out your favorite cosplayer/lolita used a lot of photoshop impact your view on them?
How much editing do you do to your photos?

...yes you can. It looks ridiculous when you make it look ridiculous.
It's good shoop but it's also a huge lie. She looks good in her right picture (just a little more fat around her waist) but it's so tempting to shoop yourself to hell and back.
Looking at her parents, they're not hispanic at all. She's half Japanese on her mom's side, and her dad is Irish or something.

Old thread hit image cap and is almost at bump limit >>9460968

This thread is for ouji and aristocrat (aka "boystyle") discussion. "Boystyle" is shorthand for "boystyle lolita" and refers to the masculine counterparts of lolita and, often, aristocrat fashions. There is a lot of overlap between these styles, and different people use different terms to describe them. So, consider this a thread for those whose style is on the right half of Buttcape's Lolita Family Triangle: http://www.kawacura.com/moripress/wp-content/uploads/2015/06/0dmmLH6-350x350.jpg

I was able to snag a Peace Now cape on Closetchild, so I'm looking forward to it coming in the mail. But it feels like I collect more random things instead of purchasing full sets to make a fully coordinated outfit.
I do this and it's kind of a problem.
I'm trying to save up and do one big closet child haul that'll fill some gaps in my wardrobe. There's actually a bunch of algonquins blouses on there that I'm feeling right now.
I fucking love capes.
same. i have too many blouses, not enough vests, and only one decent pair of shoes. not enough headwear either. but blouses, longsleeved blouses, yeah i got em all senpai

>Did the LMC concert and signings at least go well?

The concert rocked. Can confirm what some people said about spitting, albeit the only audience members who actually would've gotten wet would've been when Maya flung water out into the audience (and then later tossed them the empty bottle as well).

Hoping this is /cgl/ related because it's a Japanese crane game app where you can get anime & game merch, plushies, and Japanese household items.

Any other players or former Toreba addicts?

God damn you OP. Crane games are my weakness. I downloaded 3 days ago and already spent around $75 and now i'm whoring myself out for the free TP offers. At least I've won a couple things, including the yellow sushi cat here >>9602191 But those were all on my first night and i've had a dry spell since. ugh.
It's so exciting when you win... so addicting.

Does anyone have any other good videos for tips on winning plushies? I think the scooping ones are the best, but what do other people think?

Does anyone happen to know where this wig is originally from (or where to find something similar)?
I found it on taobao and fell in love with it, but knowing taobao it probably isn't the same wig as in the stock photos, and I really want it to look as much as the pictures as possible
I tried google image search but didn't really find anything
Are you asking if those are replicas? Doesn't seem like it to me, I think it's fine. Note that the auctions are set to end in five days and already have many bids, the starting price is low to intentionally set them up for bid wars.

And finally, comparison to other brushes

From left to right, top to bottom, we have in comparison to the unicorn brushes:

>eco tools blending brush
>nyx 'fluffy packing eyeshadow brush' (tm by me)
>luxie tapered blending brush
>a random ipsy bag small contour brush
>wet n wild unicorn highlighter brush
>elf $3 blush brush

Overall, you can sort of see in comparison to the more well known brands, the unicorn brushes don't really have that density. I compared the same brush which I think is the contour/highlight brush to both a comparably sized contour brush, and the wet n wild brush, and in terms of density, it's much closer to that of the wet n wild brush. I think the wet n wild brush wins out.

Trying to make pic related.
My main problem lie with the skirt.
How do I get the shape and what fabric should i use?
Is it even possible to do this without having a framework run to the very bottom, rendering one unable to sit down?
File: DSC02917-1_lg.jpg (17 KB, 430x323)

If the pleated skirt has ribbon loops, it would be best to hang it using those loops. Otherwise I would recommend turning that skirt inside out so the clips don't leave marks on the waistband.

The long skirt should be fine.
Framework? You mean hoopskirt? People can sit in hoopskirts don't believe what the movies tell you. It sounds like you still need to learn a lot about sewing and/or gowns so first go look up some videos on hoopskirts, petticoats and crinoline. Then the black part of the skirt to make the shape look up "facing scallops" and the red part is just gathering just look up Belle's yellow gown tutorials
Looks cool as shit, and thanks for the walkthrough!
Thanks for the advice. Pleated skirt doesn't have ribbon loops so I'll flip it and see about adding them in later. It's a bit big on me and my solution when I needed it was to sew in an elastic waistband since the waistband isn't normally visible. Ribbon loops seem like a much more practical solution.

AnimeNYC has industry support.

I feel just as dumb as you, I also bought a weekend pass for this farce con.
My condolences. Despite the size and fame of Manhattan our luck with cons is slim. The few successful ones aren't really around anymore. Reedpop has been trying to make nycc less cosplay/general public friendly in the last few years. Nyaf was super weebfest, but it was fun until it was swallowed and killed by nycc. Big Apple Comic Con I heard was fun but Idk what happened to it. Everything else is in jersey.

Shit sucks.

I would like them a lot better if they didn't look so cheap, the lace Mimi uses is horrendous.
I agree but they're also kind of strange looking but I can't put my hand on it.

I wish that the would've let Stella still help. She may have been able to make them better.
Maybe the flower crowns? Thats really the only thing that looks kind of off to me...
Yeah, the flowers look like cheap Walmart ones.
