We're just under four months away now.

Have you got a room yet, or are you still hunting?
Set on your cosplay? How's it coming along?
How do you plan on getting there?

It’s nowhere near as bad as Moitie imho, at least the re-releases they’re doing aren’t like Chinese knock off tier. The fabric for nu-Meta is interesting. It’s not as cheap as AP poly, and the construction is definitely better than AP, but it’s still not what I’d like to see. I also feel Meta did a great job keeping the fullness of the skirt, and there’s no skimping on fabric, so you can get a really nice poof. What happened to MMM is a tragedy. That one dress with the forest print is literally taobao tier.

Yeah, I'm the op and that wasn't what I meant it was more like the entire global economy seems shit rn. West, jp or China or anywhere. So the decision to release a lot of expensive dresses in a row is odd.

nayrt, it's a mix in here. I'm pretty sure there are some fat people here who have that waist size who admit 82cm waist is fat because they don't want to fuel anyone's delusions.

There've been plenty of fat and chubby people on cgl talking about their own measurements and which dresses they fit in, and they weren't jumped or mocked for doing so. People just hate it when fat people pretend they're not fat.

Anime and manga artists obviously base their female characters off of slavic women's faces and now they provide us with the best takes on those characters. As Elton said, It's The Circle Of Cosplay. They also look the most elfin.

barely anyone does military cosplays nowadays, and most of them are considered larping anyway. good news is that the market isn't saturated and ripe for the taking

long story short if you Google csgo cosplay you'd probably find me on the first result

Vtuber guests are cheap and easy to get because they don't have to actually fly somewhere. Anime Impulse is basically all English guests, cosplayers, and vtubers. They hold a lot of events so they don't have money to throw out for actual Japanese guests.

MEFCC basically got kicked out of the ITC in Dubai for being too busy, rowdy, and having "unprofessional" guests (con-goers, cosplayers, and non-business types)

Protip:
If you're not attractive and into cosplay, make tailored costumes for local Onlyfan Thots. They'll pay huge premium and you don't have to leave your parent's 2nd floor to do so.

You get the simp $$$ without having to shake your ass and undergo years of permanent damage. Plus you gain skills.

These posts are almost a year old, but I'm pretty sure the second one is me. If it is, maybe focus more on reading comprehension and less on gloating. There's no end of cons with high cosplayer turnout, from the biggest to the smallest. The real problem is if it's "an expo" or some generic multimedia event, in which case you're gonna be flooded with boomers, kiddies and normalfags

The itai in itasha came from ouch/cringe. And then after ita cars their were ita shirts and itabags. Learn cringe history, zoomer.
>>
Does anyone get creative block when working on an itabag? I have the pieces, deco, and the base bag ready to go, but when it's time to lay out all the pieces I draw a complete blank or hate whatever I'm putting down
>>
Maybe a silly question, but has anyone ever taken a bag through TSA? Do they get weird about all the items and pins and whatnot?
>>
>>10907616
NTA but they are correct ita anything is from itai because it's ugly or cringe, they didn't stem from itasha, itasha didn't even mean cringe car originally.
>In the 1980s, when Japan was at the zenith of its economic might, there were many luxury import cars in Tokyo. Among them, the "itasha"—originally Japanese slang meaning an imported Italian car—was the most desired. Since then, itasha (as the decorated vehicle) was derived from combining the Japanese words for itai (痛い, painful, cringe, embarrassing) and sha (車, vehicle).[3] Itai means "painful", with additional senses of "painfully embarrassing" "cringeworthy", "painful for the wallet" due to the high costs involved, or "painful to look at" (an eyesore). The name is also a pun for Italian cars (イタリア車, Itaria-sha), truncated in Japanese slang as Itasha (イタ車).
Learn your weebshit and sit down before incorrectly judging others.

I'm not sure how it was before but there's a stupid amount of groping. It feels like people are under the impression that it's acceptable or they won't get in trouble for it. And I guess in general they don't, it's easy to get away with and not taken as seriously as it should because it's not as 'exreme' as other things

I want to make a mask of Fujita from dorohedoro. The references I've found online are either 3D printed or homemade projects where they just post the end result without showing the process. I figure I can do what one person did and get a tengu mask off Amazon and modify it down to the shape.

Pic related for those who don't know
>>
The plastic is thin enough to cut without much trouble; I'll just hollow out the gold in the eyeholes and remove the mouth and forehead sections.

I didn't expect the nose to come in two pieces either but it'll probably make thinning the end out easier.
>>
So, how to I whittle the nose bump down to a point? It's going to have to come off no matter what, but them how to build off it? I'm thinking epoxy over something
