/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.

Any recommendations for cafes in Tokyo that aren't balls to the wall kawaii? Something along the lines of Schatz-kiste with just nice maids and not a lot of songs and magical spells for your food
Honestly they are completely honest with what they are, the facebook pages show the girls in the sexy outfits and explain their alcohol policy. They are SLIGHTLY sexier than a normal cafe (seriously one little keyhole shape is the only difference between some of these and a regular outfit) and are upfront about it, so what's the big deal?

They are just putting their own spin on it, I have no idea why you would give a shit or dislike it, can you please explain why that bothers you? You act like it's some religious ideology at stake it's a fucking maid cafe holy shit.
Why dos that appeal to you? You like uniformity that much? Go to mcdonalds if that's what gets you going lol

Now that I am able to sit down and browse the thread proper...

Read the setting and get a good idea for the fluff, as well as the irl player culture. Don't be afraid to try different games and ditch the lame ones.

Most of all, TRY. TRY to make a believable character. TRY to dress like a real person, and not like a stereotypical larper. etc.

Shave your head, and go for an epic mustache.

Any LARPers ever went to a con in their LARP get-up? The more time I'm spending on this board, the more I want to hit up atleast one decent webbo con for shits and giggles.

Anybody got any experiences?

I wonder if animecon would allow that lol
I don't get how everyone seems to know everyone involved in the drama here. I'm assuming people go some time back, but that would lead me to believe you've grown up enough not to be petty enough to stir up this drama.
Like aren't most people on here about 21-ish? How have you not grown past petty highschool level drama shit yet?

Thanks for the help anons, took it all apart today and put it back together again and it magically started working again. I'm guessing some part of the spring mechanism was blocked. All good!
Haha yesss
It's Iop armor from wakfu, all their armor pieces have these cute demon faces on them. Even the shinguards look like masks lel
Makes it cheaper for you though. My tuition fees have dropped from €3300 every three months to €2990 (atm). But the amount of pounds remains the same....

New thread.

How do you think this Ohayo was in comparison to last years?
43 replies and 12 images omitted. Click here to view.
So people are complaining about allergic reactions to the wristbands and I have my doubts that they'll finally ditch them next year.
Nah, they're not going to ditch them. Usually that's chafing or a simple irritation, doesn't necessarily mean an allergic reaction.
Was anyone at Yuu Asakawa's autograph signing? I was telling a friend that she was at the con, checked her Twitter to see what she said about Ohio, and apparently a guy was hiding under her table and touched her leg then ran away.
I ran a panel for what I thought was going to be my last year because of how panelists are usually handled here. But this year was bomb. Email responses were lightning quick and the girls were really helpful. We were invited to a FB group just for panelists, we got information before attendees did, we got rubber wristbands that were the cutest shit, they threw us a party, and they offered online check in before each panel which no con I've been to offers. And the break before and after each panel was beyond perfect. Capped room before it even started yo. 10/10 will do again if this keeps up.
Ohayocon doesn't cater to us.
I didn't show up because most of the con went to Samurai.

Yes I'm sure, clear the salt out of your eyes and look at the bows on the sides. They're engineer boots as another anon mentioned.

Ask and give advice on coords.

I coord mine like this:
-white blouse
-red bolero
-white lace topped socks
-red shoes
-red beret with the dove brooch pinned on it.

I've also done all white with it, and you can do white/brown.
I found this pair of ankle socks in the perfect shade of brick orange but I'm still trying to find other things in the color to make a coord with it.
Thank you, I will do that.

Well I wont be able to unseen that. In the end I probably do need to go with a wig from arda or epiccosplay as they are the only companies I know of that consistently make wigs that fit huge american heads.
whats the name of the dress?
perhaps consider not buying cosplay wigs for your lolita...
It was form this taobao store,

I can't tell if it is a knock off or something original. The only other place I can find it is a alibaba store turning it around for twice the price.

I am open to it. I am just defaulting to what I know as size is a concern.

Sorry to ask to be spoon feed on this but are "Gothic Lolita Wigs"/"Dolluxe" a reputable brand in the community? And are they sized larger then Asian wigs?

>tfw you're starting to wonder if your severe social anxiety is actually some kind of undiagnosed autism or aspergers
I just want to make friends who are into cosplay and jfash, but I tell myself people dislike me and avoid meets because of it. I always thought my struggling to connect with other people was due to awkwardness from being shy and anxious, but I'm wondering if maybe it's more than that. My brother's an aspie. Maybe it's in both of us.

Aaand end of dump.
Is that... that Slytherin Harry Potter JSK?
I don't think this is really ita and more like nitpick. I can see what she's trying to do with the shoes. The makeup I almost like, but I don't think it needs to be that powdered white.
All I can see is her sniffing a spotty pad.
This looks more like a casual co-ord for a movie and I kindof like it.

Why do you want to replace it of Aveeno baby works for you?
Not that anon but
>clogs up my pores
What you should do is look at the ingredients of all the ones that didn't work for you, put it in a spreadsheet and find something that is common so that the next one you research, you can look for something that doesn't have it
I'm on aveeno baby again and started my double cleansing routine and i see a big difference in my black heads and pores. I think since before I never really cleaned my face, but now I do it ever night and day. I see that the problem wasn't aveeno baby it was my poor facial cleansing habits. Double cleansing really works well. If interested i use sweet almond oil by pure body naturals and also naive kracie foam cleanser. I'm sticking to aveeno baby.
I used Stridex in the red box (a BHA) for awhile on the kp on my upper arms, it reduced it! I stopped out of laziness, but it hasn't come back even worse or anything. It's still there, but diminished from before. I should do that again...

It seams to me that the cons new owners have no idea how to run MegaCon.
Tampa was crap, and Orlando is lacking severely.
I am paying over 50+ dollars for tickets, to shop and meet guests.
No panels, and the con shuts down after 7pm.
It wont last another year.
>It wont last another year.
It'll for forever because of cape comic normies and Patreon """models""".
Just learned from a friend of mine that they have no intrest in late night programing, dances, or interactive events.
