>Post the cosplayer you have simped for the most
>How much you have simped for

My example
>400+ dollars, 100s of messages adoring her

Why? More simping = more good cosplay. We need cosplayers to know there is an army of simps ready to appreciate them.

ok dan
Even with photoshop her manjaw is so fucking offputting. Why cosplay a pedobait character if you’re over the age of 13? Kill all lolifags.

Name: Faira Star
Russian cosplayer, she's very popular in China but not so much in the west. She's a chinaboo, and cosplays characters from games and old anime, plus her favorite vocaloid.
Her skills as a model are top tier, but what sets her above the rest are her dance videos, and that she makes most of her costumes (pic related, self made). She also takes commission work though it may take time to finish the project. She joined an agency months ago and is currently swamped in official work for Genshin in China.

Guys, how old is too old?

Like, I am an oldfag in his mid 40s. Used to be very involved in the con scene back in the 90s and early 00s. I am currently on a very nostalgic mood about those days of yore, and planning to visit a few of the big cons to see how's the fandom nowadays. Would I be, as you youngsters say, cringe? Worse, would other congoers immediately assume I am a creepy pedophile? I don't really want to ruin some kids con experience like that.

Two things, I would be attending alone because the few con buddies from back then that I still keep in contact, are too jaded and busy to give a shit. Also, I am considering if it is a good idea to go cosplaying as an old timer character.

>Guys, how old is too old?
No age is too old as long as you aren't letting your saggy dick/tits hang out of some skimpy costume. But all costhots are disgusting regardless of age.
the only thing cringe is not enjoying something you like because you think you're "too old"
Well put.
You went in what I consider the golden years so it won't be anything like you remember but cons can still be fun. Cosplaying an age appropriate character especially. I don't think anyone would think you're out of place. The average con age is probably higher now than when we went.

Enjoy. Have a good time. I'm not quite as old (mid 30s) but I still enjoy soloing cons. The feeling you get at cons, even with the way the scene has changed (for the worse), it's hard to capture anywhere else.
No such thing as too old man, I see plenty of people in their 50s. Plenty of characters to cosplay no matter what age you are.

I've only seen one thread on this in the past, but it's getting into the peak time of year soon so why not see if there's any interest.
>favorite designs/tailmakers (fin fun, mertailor, fin folk)
>fabric tails vs silicone
>the actual exercise component of swimming with a monofin
I know there are mers on here and I'm trying to actually take the plunge and get a tail this year.

I mostly agree with you. I prefer the streamlined minimalist look for fabric tails, especially since the fins that are just fabric only sort of flop around aimlessly in the water. I did make an exception for the Merbella collab tails because I really like the shape and pattern of the fins, and I put inserts in so they'd be stiffer and stand out better from the body. But I think most of the finfolk fin designs take up too much space and are too blobby... especially with calf and hip fins both. they kinda make the body look shapeless.

Do older finfolks ever get cycled through again or is every single month a one-time deal?
File: Dragonheart copy.jpg (670 KB, 1024x1298)

Most of the time, the tail-of-the-months are scuba knit ("new fabric") rereleases of older tails. Esspecially designs that were only released in the original neoprene ("old fabric"), or the early scuba knit ones that didn't have extra fin options. However this past year since the summer and fall sales were all Merbella collab tails, they broke away from that trend and have been releasing a lot more new/original designs as tails of the month, i assume so they can still have their "own" designs from this year. Plus they have the time to make new ones since Raven took on the silicone sculpting/painting for summer/fall. I suspect that once this collab ends they will return to more rereleases instead of new designs for tails of the month. I know they also use it as a chance to color-correct some of the original neoprene designs where the colors were less saturated or off what they intended (see original vs rerelease dragonheart).

Older designs that have had rereleases (some even rerelased twice, as scuba knit without fins and later with fins) are: Classic Cleo, Eternal Ember, Sea Sapphire, Shoal Green, Dragonheart, Starcrossed Silver, Glaucus Atlanticus, Madison, All Hallow's Eve, Oracle... actually it'd be a lot faster to list the ones that HAVEN'T had rereleases yet honestly. Though they do prioritize designs and colors that people request most often.

I will note they have said they won't rerelase collaboration tails after the collabs have ended though. So for instance they won't rerelease the Kariel collab tails again, because they're no longer in a partnership with her and she has her own business selling tails. Not that they parted on bad terms it just would be weird contract/copyrights wise I think.
my merman tail is probably very dusty now
Really wish I could have gotten one of the merbella ones. Sigh.

I lost my nail inspo folder on my old pc so I'm starting with a mini dump in hopes of other anons dumping as well :)

We need the IP counter back.
Looks good anon! Very cute.
If you want to get into leatherwork that'd make better versions of the arm/leg cuffs. But it's hard. You may be better off with a thicker vinyl, just to make them less ripply
Not bad! If the tie is detachable from the shirt, I'd recommend switching it out with an actual yellow necktie (color matched as best as you can) since those are usually better quality than ties that are made to go with cosplay sets.
this takes me back
props for not having a wig that’s crimped to hell to look like a mmd model

I've been getting a lot of people telling me that my clothes are nice while wearing lolita.

I had one experience that stood out a little bit, maybe because it may have been my earliest experience of this kind, someone said I looked nice, and asked if I was wearing a traditional national costume, and I explained that it was a style from Japan.

Old thread is hitting the image limit >>10715389

This thread is for ouji and aristocrat (aka "boystyle") discussion. "Boystyle" is shorthand for "boystyle lolita" and refers to the masculine counterparts of Japanese lolita and, often, aristocrat fashions. There is a lot of overlap between these styles, and different people use different terms to describe them. We usually just use "ouji" here.

The biggest one (Anime North) is hardly relevant and only has washed up VAs, random indie vtubers, or just straight up completely unknown people as their guests. The vendors are mostly just people reselling cheap stuff from taobao or stolen prints.

It feels so shittily put together that I think I'll just not buy a ticket and instead stroll around outside taking pictures of cool cosplays. Maybe I'm just pessimistic, but the grass always seems greener on the other side.

On a side note, if anybody's into Project Moon stuff, please hit me up, I... I wanna make friends.

Anirevo is better
somewhat unrelated but i hear comicon this year was vile. canada might just in general be cursed to have terribly run cons

truck at the back of the parking lot with music and occasionally drinks
i went once two years ago but was too shy to talk to anyone haha, but it looked like everyone else was having fun
What do people even talk to VAs about? I'm too awkward.
Isn't the point of vtubers hiding your face because you're too ugly/male?
What's the obsession with vendor halls? It's all shit you can buy online instead of wasting time in a packed smelly room.
The hell happened at comicon?

Cute plushie. Thats a really nice poster yeah, I was super happy to see all the gilded prints done this year. Not a huge fan of the holographic ones but some aren't bad. This set of 10 gilded ghibli cards was amazing though so I was happy to grab it.
I haven't been to AB in 10 years
>Artists alley so crowded and staff on the loudspeakers screaming like the Sistine chapel
>Felt like a lot less to do, way too many people there on Saturday
>I ended up in a room party lmao

Feels crazy that the last AB I went to there was homestuck cosplayers. Now that was replaced by gacha
I really appreciate it. I'm still sore, almost a week later, but it was worth it.
The dude who was wheeling this fucking thing around said something so glowie it was unbelievable.
I saw like 3 groups of homestuck. Also go Friday if you only have 1 day unless there's certain panels you want the crowd is much more manageable.

Anyone else going to the biggest con in mn?
5 replies omitted. Click here to view.
what cons in MN are worth going to. asking seriously because I'm starting finally to have enough money for nerd shit
Im new to cons but I had fun at 2dcon last year

Whats up with VGMcon and animinneapolis? Are either of those worth going to?
Panels filled to capacity and turned away ppl still waiting in line.
Room parties were shoulder to shoulder.
Exactly what are you looking for in a con?
I like Detour and Fusion. However Fusion is a smol boi, so you have to be into intimate conversations with cool folks.

Seconded, it's called Ahegaocon and it was awesome. They were talking about renaming it for this year.

We went to VGM last year. It's a whole weekend of nonstop music. Most the musicians are litteraly-who's with shitty music, but a few of them were absolutely phenominal. They posted the schedule for the upcoming con, so you can figure out if you're into anyone.
> VGMcon, April 19 - 21
> 2Dcon, Aug 23 - 25
> Anime Fusion, Oct 18 - 20
> AhegaoCon (now AkeomeCon) Dec 27 - 29

VGM will probably be too soon but I will look into the others, thanks anons! Can't believe my shut-in ass didn't know about any of this happening in my own backyard

Note to ladies and gents. Mostly ladies. Stop cosplaying everywhere in public. You're exposing the business and making cosplay more cringe to the normies. Pic not related. Somewhat.

Anyway, stop it. No discipline or control or social awareness.

I am looking for white gloves like the one I'm wearing in pic related, except with a black bow on the top of it. I can't find any to save my life.
You literally already posted this in another thread. Is Google too difficult for you? Go fucking ask reddit you retarded whore. You look like shit.
Buy that glove and hot glue a black bow to it boom done.
Or even if you found exactly what you're looking for somewhere, it'd probably be the cheapest worst ribbon stitched on in an unflattering way because that's how cosplay fast fashion is. Just get a needle and thread and some ribbon. It takes 2 stitches.

Not going to Dreamhack but have you been to Nishi before? What kind of vibe does it have?
>Non insane project moon fans

I kneel Texas

NAYRT but what I've seen about Nishi implies coomercon, with the majority of their guests being onlyfans thots, despite allegedly being a family-friendly convention.

The bio for one of their guests mentions that she *just* started making her own cosplays this year after being into it for the past two years??? Girl chase that dollar, but goddamn nishicon have some standards

But if it's what sells badges I guess ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
>Anyone going to Dreamhack?
I am, I don't have plans to cosplay though.
i know the rabbit but what even is the guy on the left, just some random nugget?
