Am I the only one bothered by compliments along the "you're the best X ever!", "you're the perfect X!", etc? Don't get me wrong, there's obviously different tiers as far as quality of cosplay goes, but stating that someone is the absolute best just rubs me the wrong way, and recieving it doesn't feel any better. Better to say "my favourite" or "my headcanon" in that case.
Anyhow, ITT; Compliments that just doesn't sit right with you? Backhanded, ill thought through, or downright malicious compliments... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
personally, i really like when people say stuff like that? it makes me happy especially if i'm not feeling super confident about my cosplay. i don't see how saying someone is "the best" is any different than saying someone is your headcanon, because it's still a matter of opinion and usually people are overexaggerating to make the point that they think you look really good? if that makes sense
anyways, compliments that always rub me the wrong way a little is when people say things like "i don't like the character you're cosplaying... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I know cgl is against people undercharging for art in aa but what about extremely overcharging? I met a semi popular artist I follow on tumblr at a con the other day and I was set on buying a print...until I looked at her prices. $25 for a big print (11x17) $15 for a small (copy paper sized) Then I asked about her buttons,$3 for a 1.25 inch, I understand $2 but $3? For such a tiny button? Everyone else at the con,myself included was charging $15 a big print and $8-10 for a small and I would say that some of the art quality was on par if not outright better than hers,...

>>8754353 If she can sell it at that price, good for her and that also means you can raise your own prices? If she can't, then she'll learn the hard way. Either way, as long as you're laughing your way to the bank, it's fine imo.
I know this comes up on here every so often but whats /cgl/'s thoughts on cosplayers using Patreon?
Ive seen alot of cosplayers I know start these and I have had some friends insist I should try the same. I am a fairly accomplished male cosplayer but I don't think guys tend to have much success with the platform since it tends to encourage things like prints, which aren't nearly as big a thing for male cosplayers.
Personally? I don't have much issue with it. As long as the person donating is getting something in return. Like a thank you email for lower amounts and so on. It is a monthly thing after all. If you can give something in return I don't see it as awful. But it was hacked recently so I'd be careful.
As long as you give good rewards to the people who are doing you a huge favor by giving you their hard-earned money. It peeves me to no end when people ask for money and give nothing in return, like they feel entitled to their fans' money.
I can be good for popular cosplayers with a big fanbase because they expect you to keep producing new things fast and that gets expensive. If you're an absolute nobody though, or your cosplays aren't anything extravagant/cost very little money, it's pathetic.
Let's talk sponsorships, CGL. What is your opinion on cosplayers who are sponsored by lens/wig companies, or even mass-made cosplay sites? How about sponsorship programs where cosplayers are paid to post photos of products? Are they beneficial to the company and/or the community?
Post your experience if you have a sponsorship of your own, or if it's something you've considered.
>>8764975 I don't mind people getting sponserships, I'm always a little bit jealous of the free stuff they get. I do have a problem with people who are happy to be sponsered by companies that sell replicas and art theft, encouraging companies to keep ripping people off and stealing designs just so you can get free goodies is shitty
>>8764975 a couple days ago, there was drama about some lousy german fetish photographer, who offered 200€ sponsoring to a cosplayer commenting under their facebook post with their planned cosplay project, but they had to hand him over all the corporate rights of their taken pictures
Do any of you have an issue with you boobs when wearing lolita? I know there are lolitas who have problems with their boobs being too big while other lolitas have problems with their boobs being too small. This is a self-esteem issue for a lot of us. Lets talk about it.
>>8737654 i really hope they do something in the future to make the bottom mouth look more realistic, like fake skin. the bottom mouth is the only thing i really don't like about this cosplay. the rest of it looks fantastic, just that second mouth looks so out of place. i do like that the color seems to match the rest of the skin tho.
Not sure how well it will go because it's sort of last minute but i'm planning on going as a white mage from FF and bringing my friend whos going as Link. It's generic I know but I'm still relatively new. Not planning on going to masquerade.
It's that time again for another Arizona thread! What's been going on recently? People are boycotting saboten and are staff members of Arizona conventions being rude to the community? If anyone can explain anything please fill us in!
>>8769651 I havent heard shit about boycotting anything. While yes some staff is rude as fuck, arrogant and unhelpful, ive also met some really sweet helpful people who genuinly care about the local con scene. Honestly it's the same sort of shit at any con, people in az are bored and just like to talk shit imho
I'm at an absolute lost for words right now. This type of behavior from a staff at a convention is unacceptable. If anyone convention organizers can see this please talk to you staff members about public appearances
