[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.

Agreed. I personally dont think you should be in this fashion until 15/16 when you can make money at some minimum wage job to spend on fun things. Most younger are too underdeveloped emotionally or mentally to understand income, spendature, or concrit.

Are 15/16 year olds in minimum wage jobs anymore? That seems like an outdated concept now, I feel as if I never see anyone younger than 20 in service jobs now.

I was 12 when I got into lolita and I remember back then being told to walk to the bank myself and open my own bank account so I could afford my own lolita clothes. Obviously it was genius advice.

Where do you live that allows 12 year olds to open their own bank accounts?

NS here, that’s definitely okay! I personally don’t mind if it’s late, and if you have tracking you can keep an eye on it. Thank you so much for letting me know, I’m looking forward to it. Don’t worry too much about paying for a private courier service also!

One good thing is that the employees are working, just albeit very slowly and no overtime or weekends. I think there is a possibility where it could be resolved before December, but at this point who knows.


I’m going to look into having my packages possibly shipped from the USA, since the drive to the border is only about 3.5 hours, and I have a family member in the US who I could use as the return address for customs. Will keep giftees posted if I do this.

The summer Paris meet was small but very successful, now it’s time for the Winter Chicago meet.
Are you planning to attend?

The comm-wide parapara project was also a success, the next one is currently being planned.
https://youtu.be/mPQKO9BdF4Q

OfficeKiko x Esperanza boots started an old school gal nostalgia revival, followed by an event in Shibuya 109, now OK is doing a denim collaboration that is also inspired by gal/90’s fashion.
Did you buy the boots yet? Are you interested in the new denim

It also seems as though gyaru is having a small revival in the western community, are you excited or annoyed with all of the newbies?

Any winter meets planned locally? If so, are you/your circle/comm doing anything special for the holidays?

Any weight loss tips? I feel like I'm bursting out of my Japanese brand clothes and it's not pretty. I exercise but I'm really bad at keeping cravings at bay :(. Plus the holiday season and my alcohol intake in parties is killing my calorie count. I feel like a fucking whale and ugh.
>>
>>10040363

If you find you do more cardio, switch it up and start doing more weight training. It’ll help you burn more calories in the same amount of time and you’ll see some improvement.

I’ve found that when I have an urge to binge on snacks, drinking a big glass of water helps quell that.

I think most people get heart buttons manufactured nowadays because the cost outweighs the time/labor saved imo. Also in my experience with a button maker (borrowed a friend's), there's a moderate defect rate because it's actually quite difficult to punch that angle in a heart. I find that the mylar rarely sits perfectly flush in the top center of the heart but it's usually not a huuuuge deal to customers but can be annoying sometimes if it's worse than usual.
>>
>>10040358
er sorry I mean the time/labor saved outweighs the cost
>>
>>10040340
I have one. It pays itself back but it's fucking annoying to deal with. Like someone else said, higher rate of defects mostly due to the stupid mylar. Don't.

With the con wrapping up, what were your favourite panels, what did you cosplay, and what cosplays did you like seeing? It was nice to still seem some Touhou done, and there was a lot of BNHA as usual. Did anything not meet your expectations?

No they don’t? Read into it before you repeat boomer logic.

Parcel deliveries have increased a ton with online shopping, but despite the biggest workload they aren’t getting compensated for it as much. They are striking for better pay when being forced overtime (or stopping the overtime and hiring more) and better accident benefits.

Canada post is a crazy profitable company but treats their employees like trash because it’s an “essential service”.
>>
>>10040426
Plus it’s not even full-on strike, but a rotating one. They’re just working regular hours rather than doing overtime. It’s the compagny that was locking them out the previous weeks. But the post is still moving. Just... very slowly. Unfortunately, combined with the influx of holiday packages, this has turned into a massive backlog.

>>10040425

This is kind of unfortunate since the holidays is really when they have the most momentum. Strike in the summer and no1currs.

While I'm sympathetic to the postal workers they gave me a mini heart attack while I was waiting for cosplay supplies and cut down on the time I had to prepare said cosplay, so I'm kind of annoyed with them. It's frustrating how neither side is willing to budge but I'm sure the workers will end up screwed by back to work legislation at some point.
