[Catalog] [Archive]

/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.

Oh god the cringe
>>
This has been the state of these threads the last couple of years. Rather than finding truly bad makeup we have people posting stuff that just isn't great. I've seen at least a dozen makeup jobs this year that would qualify as cringe level bad but I don't take pictures of bad cosplay just to shame them in these threads.

Partially the reason people think it's crossboarders is because anyone who actually cosplays knows your first few costumes look like crap. I was just looking at a few of my first cosplays recently and even though I got lots of compliments/pictures at cons, I couldn't imagine being seen in public like that now. So to all the incels out there that use cosplay as fap material and thus feel the need to berate anything less than great, get a life.

What information would only be known to their staff?
Nothing here sounds that secretive. Plus like how much staff do they have, ex staff, Facebook friends.
Sounds like someone is doing some serious stalking.
>>
I know actually more about animecon staff and how it works there than any other con, and I am not particularly close with any staff member of any convention. I'm not sure this one anon is so salty, but he starts looking like someone with some vested interest in trash talking other conventions than his own, and uses a lot of fake news to do so.
>>
>>9946763
But do you see that as a bad thing?
Or is it better to have a organization that is secretive and covered in a cloud of smoke.
I mean if i compare animecon and abunai. animecon being open and honest about good and bad, and abunai that is quicker to take out the ban hammer than admit it did something wrong.
I much prefer the first. Knowing the human side of it makes me feel more involved and I honestly appreciate all the work they do, because I know that they are working so hard to make it better.
Abunai is mostly busy tooting it's own horn, and tomo only cares about having more editions.
Any other event doesn't even matter really.

Acon: We're serious business when it comes to organising things and not afraid to take a risk.
Abunai: We know we're not perfect. Anyway, here are some dank memes about things our visitors always complain about.
Tomo, especially the TomoAnon squad: Criticism? I don't know what that is, but I sure as hell am taking everything that is being said personal!
Nishi: Better stay out of the spotlight, the last thing we want is community exposure and have people know we actually exist.
Viencon: "Kom je ook naar Viencon?"
ACC/RCC: Look at all of our celebrity guests! We've got celebrity guests, some of which even are celebrities and you can spend 5 seconds with one of these celebrities for the low price price of only €40!
DCC: Look at all the celebrities guests who will cancel last minute!
Elfia: Why isn't anyone complaining about us?
Castlefest: Why isn't anyone complaining about us either?

Who was in Japan Expo ? Who watched the finals for European Cosplay Gathering ?

Anyone else is shocked that neither Italy nor France are in the top 3 for solos ?

They were the two best shows (costume + skit) and got nothing. I know it's getting tiring that France always gets a win, but desu this year they should have and same for Italy.

On the other hand, I completely agree for the group results, but I think the solos results are completely crazy.

What about you ?

That french judge was drunk got cocky and spilled the tea at the saturday party.
Apparently he came to her multiple times in both sat and friday asking her to confess cheating he even asked her to scratch her paint on the swords to see what they were made of. Finally after what looked like harassment she confessed making it not by herself. That judge then concluded the mask was probably also bought and she didn't place (he also said the mask wasn't well made and did not look anything like Walder Frey)
All I know
>>
>>9945072
Wtf I mean cheating is awful, but that's just downright harassment from the judge. Hopefully they won't ask him to be judge anymore after this.
>>
Danish, Spanish and French group deserve more praise imo their skits got the public

Italian girl commissioned her sword and mask so she did not place
>>
Wasn't impressed by the skits this year, they all felt a bit subpar. Usually I don't agree with France winning, but I think this year they really deserved something with the solo act! And I'm not sure why the Czech Republic won best group, the costumes were good but the skit was very cliché.
>>
>>9946043

solo france got the most cliche skit (like you see the dress you know it's gonna quickchange and nothing more)

plus it does not match the reference source upclose

I'm going! But I'm flying in alone. It's my first con. This is the second year they're running CX - first in San Jose - and the last one was apparently well-run. I suspect high turnout this time around, since they have a Franxx panel.

Can I get some help gulls? I have meta's dark guardian in wine, but I haven't been able to find socks that match both in color and style? I feel like the wine sock I have are too vivid to match.
>>
>>9938626

If you can't find anything to match I'd generally suggest matching everything else around it, in this case black lace tights -- not the cheap floral ones, there's a lot of variety. If you can find something with vertical patterns that would tie in nicely with the print's vertical pattern.

Then the shoes can either be glitter black shoes, or black shoes with some silver detail so that they don't fully blend into the tights. Headwear can be black feathers with silver accents.

So this is what I have for my Candy Bottle Op coord so far. I found out the bodice ruffles are removable so I considered a cardigan. Hoping the biscuit purse adds onto the candy/sweets theme of the dress. Thinking about a boater hat for a hair accessory and gold for jewlery. Thoughts and opinions?
>>
>>9938626
woven or textured patterns that are understated work well with dress.

>>9941289
I think I like the lighter/sweeter theme of the far right items and the tan shoes/bag combo the best.

Might be a cost thing -- a decent wig in that length (especially at the volume needed for Mei) might run $30-40, which would be a disproportionate chunk to budget for an outfit that looks simpler to begin with.
Could also be comfort -- OP might be treating this as an easy loungewear cosplay (accessorized with backpack and oven mitts), so they're not looking to spend extra money on a wig.

I'm generally on the "get a wig" train, but this feels like a case where natural hair could work, if you get some mousse or volumizing spray and check that it's not deflating over the course of a day.

just draft it yourself ffs

This is a thread for masked cosplay, preferably completely concealed cosplay but half mask cosplay is allowed too. Post images of characters that fit the look as well as cosplay of said characters. Masked cosplay is good for people who'd like to cosplay with more anonymity, for people who feel self conscious about their appearance, for people with self anxiety or people who want an excuse to not talk in cosplay.

Kicking off with Spider Gwen.
