Baby is currently running an illustration contest! You design a dress based around the theme of 'Music', and if you win, your dress is made into reality as well as a matching Pulip doll!
Is anyone here entering? Do we have translators that can help with the info? Also, feel free to discuss entries, ideas, what you'd like to see and more!
I mean anon's design sucked too. That looked like babby's first "loliable" coord from every ita's favorite burando, Forever 21.
Thank you for the translated rules, by the way.
Anon I beg of you to submit this design
I feel like most people who talk like this really have no concept of how to put together a decent coord. You sound like you're full of hot air. You should post your entry and show us what is worthy.
I wonder if they've gotten any joke submissions
Can someone make a seagull print? Have seagulls on it in the air and a sea animal parade or an orchestra in the water below, like The Little Mermaid. Maybe mermaids singing as well?
We'll name it "Song of the Salt".
Online lolita comm thread: ganguro is blackface edition
It's literally no boys allowed and I kinda like that
Why is this back?
>>9559195 >>9559198 >>9559209
and there's another one doing it now
This person in the strangers taking pictures of you thread is claiming that their pictures were used to catfish people. Somehow I find this hard to believe.
i really like this! thanks for showing it anon, you might want to post it in the next lolita gen thread also
Have you ever been bullied because of your love of cosplay and/or lolita?
>>9556216 >has a propeller too big for typical landing gear, so she contorts her wings to make up for it >people think this contortion is sexy
It's like Scarjo and her lumbar lordosis that people mistake for a tight ass.
Pic unrelated, a real beauty who is better than her older sister in every way.
No, but I keep my powerlevel hidden under lock and key
>>9548736 >girls don't bully each other
lolitas deserve to be bullied, they're fucking insane
What's the best convention you've ever gone to and why? And what was the worst? Post your recommendations and opinions here!
I live in southern Florida, and there are no good cons anywhere close to me. They're either extremely small (I'm talking <50 people) or have nothing to do except buy stuff from vendors who do online sales for cheaper. The only tolerable one I've been to is Tampa Bay, but that's only because of the occasional great panel.
>>9564473 >There is completely lack of good photo shot spots
Are you out of your mind? As long as you bring a thematically-appropriate cosplay that works either in the waterpark or in the grassy fields, it's easily one of the best photoshoot cons I can think of.
Worst for me has to be SacAnime. I've been to cons that were run worse, but nothing comes close to the level of cancer that is Sac's attendee base.
Best is hard to say. I love Fanime but it's been going downhill the last few years. I want to say AniMagic but I'm viewing it through rose-tinted nostalgia glasses. Honestly not sure.
>>9564306 >Kawaii Kon
Thank you, anon! I'll look into that next time I'm around Hawaii.
If you want to stay in TN, hit up Akai or Anime Blues. Still MTAC sized, but usually better with programming. Anime Blues doubly so if you're 18+ or 21+.
Otherwise, travel to Atlanta. Momo and AWA are good anime cons and are much bigger than any in TN currently.

Thought dude on the right looked cool and was having the most fun, don't have a clue what character though. Nice to see people get into it, a lot of fuckers were deadpan boring. Idk if I ever cosplayed I'd go nuts. Meant to talk to the guy dressed as scorpion. Didn't know if he was solo or with a group, bc I'd like to go as raiden, barraka or reptile If I did give it a shot. Johnny cage if I was a bigger guy, 4u. Looked at some pics online and most mk costumes are shitty compared to what he did.
Anyone around raleigh with costume design experience? Pls respond I only have a year
I'm definitely returning next year. Going to actually cosplay this time.
My favorite part was meeting Charles Martinet. Not only is he the most iconic voice of my childhood, but he was the nicest guy. He signed my copy of Mario 64 and said everything he wrote in the voice of Mario.
The signing of Mario, Luigi and then CHarles Martinet was golden.
I loved meeting him as well. Worth the 40$
My favorite moment was when I took a photo op with Ric Flair. Woooooo!
Also, meeting the wrestlers there and having the anime voice actress sign my guestbook.
Running around the convention center with a El Generico mask.
Have any cosplay ideas in mind yet?
I dont regret any purchases I made even though I paid superiflated prices for merch and 25$for custom Dana art/signature, shit was well worth it.
Missed Rick but talked with the guy that wrestled the French T. rex(p sure that's what he said I could be way off) he was cool as fuck, didn't see Ric. O well. I saw some fuck with a Mexican wrestler mask on walking around, think it was purple.
Anyway glad to see you guys had a badass time too
Last thread was nuked. Incels please stay away this time. Please.
Now don't go using Our Lord YWH's name in vain again
I really want to get something for my postman. He's always really good.
If I end up getting a "sorry we missed you" message, he comes back around with the regular mail and gives me my stuff. Separate feel- Got my dream dress in the mail today and the guy I've liked for a while pretty much asked me out. I'm in a good mood.
>>9567103 >Most people don't naturally progress into wanting to fuck every one of their friends.
It only takes about 1% of women doing this for your statement to be a lie.
Keep responding to bait everyone and this thread will get nuked too.
What expectations do you set for yourself that you feel like you can't reach?
Have you ever been kicked out of a con/ seen someone else kicked out of one for their cosplay? If yes what was it?
So, you're going to police the clothes people wear now based on their size? Oh lord.
I'm not gonna go into detail about this, but thin people shouldn't be treated differently for wearing the same thing their smaller counterparts wear. Everyone should be allowed to wear the same thing if they so choose.
I mean, legally they should be allowed but a con is allowed to make their own rules. And fatties really should learn to dress for the body they have because no one wants to see their disgusting folds.
More surface area. Easier to spot.
I think its fine as long as the same amount of skin is covered. The thing is like boyshorts cover way more skin on a thin girl than they do on a fat girl and thats where the problem lies. Boyshorts cover 90% of a skinny girls ass but on a fatty? Like half of it will be hanging out.
Greetings from /diy/
this is my first visit to /cgl/ and to be honest i;m a lot more impressed than i thought i would be. i'm looking for opinions on a project i;m currently working on, 3d manouvering gear from Attack on Titan(pic related) what i'd like to know is A: how does the project look so far? its straight off the printer and only push fitted together B : are 3d prints deemed acceptable or are they vewed as a form of cheating? thanks
its honestly really no different than people who use pepakura for their cosplay, and that doesnt get frowned upon.
prints still need a ton of work like sanding and painting if youre using it for cosplay purposes.
also, some people actually do model their own stuff and then they print it out. so it does still take some effort into the whole process.
You should take time to see if an appropriate thread exists for your topic. It shouldn't take long to realize that there is no posts for a single project. It looks good. Uh, yeah, post in WIP from now on. Honestly, a 3D printing thread related to cosplay could warrant its own thread. I don't know that there's enough working with 3D printers to get much momentum though.
That's why there's a handy dandy little pinned post pinned to the top, so it's the first thing you see when visiting. It also says "READ THIS BEFORE YOU POST A NEW THREAD" so I'm not wholly sure how you missed that.
Usually I have sympathy on newcomers but you can screw right off with that attitude. It's not our fault you are unable to read.
Let's just convert this thread to a 3D printing thread then. Anyone have any 3D work?
I've recently learned how to use a 3D printer and am curious what costume items would lend themselves well to printing.?
Grief seeds were the first thing I 3D printed. At the time, I was a university student and the team responsible for convincing the school to buy a bunch of 3D printers really wanted to use them to make ANYTHING. They're really useful for things you need multiple of and want to look cohesive (so group cosplay stuff, like Sailor Moon tiaras maybe).
Old ones autosaging again.
Who's going to Afest?
Same, I don't buy prints anymore because I'm literally out of space to hang them. I was always choosy about fandoms in the first place, how do other people do it? Just throw out things they don't like anymore?
I switch pieces out periodically. Keeps things interesting.
Has an unofficial meetup list for animefest been put together yet? I've checked the fb several times but only been able to find individual meetups posted.
Probably not. Akon has someone compiling all the meet ups and running things but I don't think Afest does.
Join the "official" Afest Cosplay group on FB. Someone posted something there.
