Are you ready to see Marinas flooding con floors for the next year?
Pearl's disgusting too. Callie's my girl.
Anybody fancy dumping switch FCs? Maybe have a bit of a /cgl/ Splatoon lobby going on?
You're not alone, I'm not too fond of either of them. Marina is Booby McCumface, having that perfect shy waifu personality everybody has a boner for and Pearl is your bratty tomboy loli that everybody hates. Maybe I'm just salty that the Squid Sirens are no more.
that'd be lovely

Cosmo... as in a cosmopolitan.
There's no noticeable shrinkage at all.
I highly recommend epoxy.
The resin should adhere just fine. worst case scenario, it can just be taken in and out of the glass. Anyhow, I'd recommend Amazing ClearCast as a specific brand.
Keep the bottles in a small bowl of hot water for about 5 minutes before measuring and mixing to prevent heat bubbles.
Don't use any water-based dyes to colour your resin (ie food colouring). Alcohol inks and dust from chalk pastels are the best way to go.
You guys remember how last thread people were complaining about the Sailor Moon molds? Well, I thought everyone was just too stupid to figure out how to use it, but now I realize that was wrong. Five failed attempts. Bendy, not cured (using UV) thoroughly, parts of the mold too tiny to actually get any resin in there. Fuck these molds!!! I just wanted to make cute phone case decorations!
I dome mine in the mold with UV and they turn out a lot stronger... but still weak as shit compared to everything else I make. If you're making phone cases, as in you're sticking them to the case itself, the bendyness won't be an issue; if you're making charms, you should fill in as much as humanly possible. Use a bigger, more useful mold like a heart or oval to make a kawaii backdrop for your puny wands. Put in holographic film flakes and those tiny nail charms and make cute gradients and shit and it will look great, not look like a last-ditch attempt to convince yourself you made a good purchase. Dome the shit out of it once you're done and coat the wands with resin just to be on the safe side. It also means you can do more with them, since you can play around a lot with themes and color combinations.
I just dome the backs with epoxy to make them more durable.
Always meeting the constant dilemma that is to choose between cosplay or taking photos at conventions. Been wanting to bridge the two for the longest time.
Saw a lot of people doing the photographer from Pokemon series and Frank Wests, though want to consider other alternatives available. Pic related was a pretty cool one I saw a while back, a working Polaroid cosplay with a DSLR and mobile printer connected to a Tablet

thank you kind anon
not that anon but these seem to be more lace stripes rather than solid stripes
Any stores sell shirts similar to omocat, milkbbi and galaxxxy clothing? I want some stuff like that in my wardrobe but working a minimum wage job doesn't really have a lot of wiggle room. I've seen a lot of knock offs of omocat's sudden rain hoodie but that's it.
Pic related is some stuff I've already ordered and am currently waiting on.
Looks like the old one autosaged.
Come here to dump tutorials, ask questions, and share your (good or bad) hair experiences. Are you trying to grow your hair longer currently? What is your goal length? Do you have a routine?
is this the right thread for scalp related questions or should i ask in the skincare thread?
I got some adore hair color and I saw that it says to shampoo and then towel dry? I have really thick hair.. Shouldn't I just let it dry out completely before putting dye in?
Go ahead and ask it here
No, having damp hair allows the dye to be applied more evenly and soak into your hair. With semi permanents you want the pigment to get in, it's not like using a permanent dye where the water might ruin the developer concentration or something.
>>9554328 >and still pretty healthy.
Yeah...... no. From what I can see, your hair looks dry and brittle, and having granny hair makes it even more noticeable.
TL;DR: is the con scene a lot less forgiving for older cosplayers or even older con-goers in general?
I'm in my early 30s and used to be in the con scene in my early and mid 20s but eventually left due to drama and stupid people. But I've begun to miss cons of all things. I'm wondering if 1) it gets better in terms of maturity for older cosplayers interacting with one another, 2) if the stereotype is still true that there's still so few older con-goers around it's not worth bothering to hit up cons that aren't essentially giant pop-culture advertisement expos, and 3) depending on two's answer if I'm a huge faggot for still having an interest in the con scene or cosplay in general in my seeming old age and it's time to move on. Yeah, I know every answer and experience is subjective, but I'm wondering if a consensus can be had. For the sake of clarity and responses, I'm a guy and always gravitated to simpler costumes (since I can't make worth shit) and never was much for anime or eastern stuff, it's preferably comics and to a much lesser extent gaming as my nerd interest of choice. Thanks in advance for replies.
Wait are you complaining comic cons are too young? Comic & Sci-fi cons have always had an older demographic. Anime cons skew younger.
I'm expecting a surge of 30-40 somethings as nerds who went to cons in their teens start producing offspring and they want to take their kids somewhere fun for a weekend.
OP here. Thanks much for the replies!
Giving no fucks is definitely part of why I'm getting ready to give it another whirl, but to me there's still the feel there's just not many older people in general at cons and it'd be nice to meet people with similar interests again, but are my age - meeting people at cons is part of the fun, eh.
Most cons I went to in my original days were anime cons due to being the ones that I was taken to by friends. I did go to Magfest and I'll concede to you it definitely skewed to an older demographic. So if comic cons tend to have older people that's definitely a plus.
you're a huge faggot, but not because you want to go to cons again.
There is no "con scene" you have to be a part of.
Just go out with your friends for the weekend and enjoy yourself, you got sucked into drama and stupid people because you hung out with those people.

fucking this. a million times.
>AX 2016 >went with friends and co-workers. >had a blast all days >AX 2017 >friends and co-workers couldnt join me (they had to pass AX for comic-con instead) >decided to hang out with online friends instead >they are more into the whole anime/cosplay scene than my friends/co-workers >nothing but drama the entire time >end up spending most of the time soloing it because I couldnt stand the drama
as for the OP: Anime cons will always have a much younger demographic.
comic cons will always have a much older demographic.
Didn't see one, so here's a new one.
I remember a long time ago people talking about lucaille wigs, I can't remember if it was for good or bad reasons, though. Does anyone have any experiences with them or remember any other peoples' stories?
Can anyone help me find a mid or long length in a color like the top part of this wig? I've been searching like mad with no luck. I've only managed to find really thin ones but I need a thicker one for spiking
A long time ago I got a lacefront wig from Wigisfashion for a Daenerys costume. I haven't been able to figure out how to help blend the lace with my skin. I'm not sure if this brand of wig's lace is just rough and cheap and if I should just get another one from elsewhere or if I'm doing something wrong.
I use spirit gum and try to smooth the lace over it as much as I can. It ends up looking like I have eczema along my hairline. I was going to go with an Arda wig if I replaced it. Anyone have some close up photos of the lace from Arda? Or if you have another suggestion as to where I should get a lacefront for Daenerys that works too.
I think a copper would look nice.
Is Shampoo's hair blue or purple?? I'm trying to find a wig on arda wigs to get but I can't figure out which color is best. I've seen cosplays with blue and purple wigs, I'd like a mix of both colors.
Also, is it possible to style those side buns without buying a separate wig piece?
From Arda, my best guess would be Ultraviolet/Royal Purple, but it doesn't look like they have any wigs in stock for those colors. If you need a wig ASAP, you might want to try your hand at dyeing. You might be able to make a color that you like and can't find anywhere else. For the buns, my first thought would be to find a good Tsushima Yoshiko styling tutorial and copy the bun on to both sides.
Lolita and cosplay both welcome!
I'll start with mine >I don't get all this nostalgia for pastel OTT sweet. It wasn't too long ago (like 3-4 years) when this style was at its peak, so I find it ridiculous.
What's wrong with con Lolitas hell even meet Lolitas I can't do the daily Lolita thing cause of my work. So that's pretty much the only time I have to wear the fashion.
I really like how full set coordinates look, I don't care about them being uncreative.
This. As long as you look good, who cares when/where/how often you wear lolita? Some people have real jobs.
OT, but I used to think he was literally just dirty in the movie lel
>>9569949 >"the vietcongs won't find me now!"
Post and discuss coords of lolitas that said NO to the rules.
Fyi: this is not an ita thread, and yes, I know lolita has rules. I just like to see something else every now and then.
AP could start selling trainers and people would buy it. But the designers decide not to make them.
Then where does this weird backlash come from?
If they're pumping out sack dresses, according to you its because people keep buying them.
Its possible that gulls refuse to admit that the opinions on those cuts are mostly only held here and we all know deep down that stuff posted here doesn't matter outside of this site- but that leaves it open for being more of brands do whatever they want.. Which I'm sure they do. Maybe they even choose to do what they want based off what people are buying, but thats still their decision and whatever cgl thinks is like 1% of their customer base.
>>9568470 >I don't think brands control the evolution of lolita. Do they influence it? Sure.
What is the difference? When brands influence the fashion by introducing new cuts, lolita evolves.
This. At the end of the day, the brands are the ones who decide what gets put out. I bet it's a little bit of both. Like, something sells well, so they put that out. And then other times it'll just be something they want to put out themselves.
You need to calm down
I'm pretty new to this and can't decide what my first big cosplay should be! I'm a bit of a Star Wars head so I'm thinking a character from that universe, but I'm open to suggestions! Do I look like any character in particular or is there one character that's suited for an entry level cosplayer?
Suck me andy
Blocked and reported sir!
Are you from Canada? My grandma has half of those same ornaments and star.
is the Suggestion Thread.
is the Help Thread.
Either one would be a better place to ask these questions. You do not need your own thread for this, and no one is going to give you asspats for wearing a robe.
