SCOTTISH HIGHLAND DRESS

I really should put a good one together for funerals and what not. I'm in the most inbred sept of the 7 Highlander Clans and a descendant of the first king of Scotland.

I'm thinking about going with an over the top obnoxious "Supreme Overlord" look.

I definitely want a fancy cross belt to hold down the over the shoulder tartan.

I think the best I can do for Ghillie Brogues would be tall Medieval Moccasins.

The fanciest I could do would be... plain black leather boots but have the laces in gold leaf with my clan tartan instead of white socks shown here, with a cuff of rabbit fur at the top to shamefully hide my royal thighs.

The suede ones wouldn't look as good as the black leather. The most over the top thing I could do to the boots themselves is have two chevrons applied to them in gold leaf.

My COA is a humble two chevrons. My crest badge is legendary.

The cross belt... well because I want gold hardware that's probably going to be a fun thing to make happen.

I don't want a No. 1 Highland jacket though, maybe something like... a done up wedding jacket?

Cheap aliexpress items that look like they're trying to invoke the style of certain beloved lolita brands, but they miss the mark (except one is just a cheap cosplay but it still kind of works for that brand) and deliberately spreading false info about lolita fashion because it's funny when people stumble into a shit post thread and think it's real

I find that after wearing a costume to a con or other event I don't know what to do with it. When the next event rolls around, I want to make a new costume. This means I have a closet full of old costumes basically just sitting there...
What to you do with your costumes when you are "done" with them?

t b h this is why I switched to lolita. I handmake a lot of my stuff so I still get the creativity aspect, and I can switch up the way I wear my dresses so each occasion still feels new to me
>>
>>10905540
I don’t wear a lot of costumes, but I would take that sort of thing to a swap meet. I usually don’t even trade stuff there, I give it away when someone wants it.
>>
I try to choose cosplays where the majority of the separate pieces could be worn irl as actual clothes, and go into it treating anything which couldn't be worn irl as disposable. This may cause me to use some pieces which are not 100% accurate to the character or to historical accuracy, and my job is then to figure out how to hide those inaccuracies. If I know I would be able to use a part irl if it just didn't have a design or whatever on it, I purposefully make certain parts removable (such as attaching designs on fabric with temporary glue, magnets, temporary paint, etc instead of permanently gluing or sewing them on), or purposefully choose a version of the character (such as "prequel vs sequel", "manga vs anime") which contains less wasteful parts, or I pose the costume ("use the scarf from episode 4 to cover your neck so no one can see your neckline is actually just a normal t-shirt").

I'm a public school teacher so I can't wear too "out there" stuff even in my private life, or I'll get found out and fired because random people take photos of you and send them to your boss and coworkers (schools are damn strict - can't be a ninja or even make a finger gesture of a gun like Vash in Trigun because that "advertises violence"). So I'm mostly doing tame costumes and stuff based off historical clothing.

Films/tv shows that are based on cosplay/con culture or at least reference it in some way.

I felt that 2Kawaii4Comfort was (for better or worse) the most accurate description of going to a small con and having a bad time at it. It's a shame it ended on a cliffhanger.

>>10905992
I tried to enjoy it, but the whole plot of the film is a major bummer.

SPOILER:
The plot is a Star Wars fan is dying of cancer and travels across the country with his friends to see one last Star Wars film before he dies (that ends up being a terrible film...). I know there's a "It's not the destination, it's the journey with friends" plot in it, but that's a depressing journey.

Has anyone seen Genshiken?

Plot:
Genshiken is an anime that’s more about otaku culture similar to Wotakoi. It’s about a group of college students who created their own otaku club known as Genshiken. Kanako Ohno is the main cosplayer of the group and is usually the main attraction for the club at student fairs. Normally, she’s soft-spoken but is extremely passionate when it comes to cosplay and talking about yaoi. She develops a relationship with Souichirou Tanaka, another cosplayer and costume designer in the club.

Makes me wish I was born 5-7 years earlier than I actually was so I could have been around for this fandom at an age where I could actually participate in it. Lately it feels more and more like what I thought was the peak that I actually got to participate in (2011-2013ish) was actually the fandom just running on the fumes of what it was in 2000-2010.

she meant to say that they have no firm beliefs of their own, they can't stand up for themselves so they would never be able to stand up for her. Basically they are not masculine enough and don't set boundaries in a way that is attractive to women. Being a "nice guy" or a pushover causes women to take advantage of you, which means they are interacting BUT they will forever view you as beneath them so you'll never be considered for a relationship or they will only be in it reluctantly

I don't even know who the popular female cosplayers are anymore. I can name Yaya Han and Jessica Nigri but they were big 10 years ago. I guess Amouranth is a modern example but her main hustle is streaming, I don't even know if she still does cosplay.

Is it weird to cosplay non-SF Capcom characters at an event such as Evo?
>>
>>10906883
Not at all. EVO has tons of games being played other than Street Fighter and there would be tons of Capcom fans there that would appreciate seeing them. Although it would probably be more well-received if the character was at least from a fighting game in some regard.

>>10905176
NTA but no, they shouldn't be really low quality, they're supposed to be passion projects. Low budget is different than low effort and low effort tends to be ita. I feel like it's one of those things where the people who chose to attempt it are the exact people who shouldn't. They don't have to be amazing or anything, but many I've seen especially in the western comm are narcissistic circle jerks. They tend to act like very personal opinions or experiences are universal and treat them like fact which is weird.

sorry let me just make an entirely new thread next time to look for a specific book instead of posting it in the already existing book-adjacent thread. youre so right.

theres more to the book. it was a collaborative effort. There are multiple different comics, testimonials, etc. I want to read it first to form an opinion on it.

bumping this thread before it dies. would posting cgl-adjacent zines like idol zines be okay?

Try Dinaranger cosplay. You can base it off a catsuit and standard hood from, say Hiro Gato.
That way only your eyes are visible.
