As I watch/play things I keep a list of characters that I could see myself cosplaying as. When I know I'll be going to a con in the next year I pick one or two and then start gathering every reference photo I could possibly need. I'll usually spend a week looking at tutorials that would related to that cosplay and picking out wigs. Then I start planning out all of things I'll make myself, I usually draw out the outfit in my notebook and make notes of the colors of fabrics I'll need. Once all of that is planned out I head to the fabric store and start buying things.
Cosplanner. I'm absolutely hooked on it. Used to have an elaborate series of ref sheets, checklists and excel spreadsheets, etc, but now I basically just keep it all in the app except for one detailed measurement sheet if i'm making it for someone other than myself
>>8732714 >>8732750 I used to hoard folders of reference images too but with my most recent cosplay I put together a sort of collage like lolitas do for coordinates, which I felt helped a lot since I'm a very visual person.
I never heard of cosplanner, I definitely want to look into that though!

Let's discuss: > Which characters benefit the most from having a prop with them, and which props? > What is your preferred way of greying up?
>>8682837 For photoshoots literally any character will be bumped by a good prop, at least if you're shooting single. Sure, you might get a few neat shots, but chsnces are they won't be particularly interesting.
Can we please discuss this movie? I remember threads from a year or two ago with people finding it on a chinese website and roughly translating it. It's super obscure for some reason. It includes >lolita >maids >maid cafe >kawaii net idoru >greasy otaku >AKB48 members what's not to like?
Well, my wallet is in pain (this came up at a really inconvenient time, to be honest), but I finally found it! And with this beautiful bonnet included. Thank you, kind anon, for alerting me to the auction.
Honestly, I haven't felt this much for a dress since the first JSK I ever bought. And that bonnet! I can't wait til it gets here and I can wear it. It's just so perfect. Thank you so much, anon!!
Follow the same hair and skin care advice that cis girls do with the following additions
- Cover up lingering beard shadow with thicker concealer - Wear a lot of "shapewear" (Spanx and stuff like it) - Frilly, poofy crap lolita hides your broad shoulders pretty well - If you're going to use the men's restroom please cough or sigh or something so that the other dudes don't get too mindfucked in case they get violent at the thought of a "lady" using the men's restroom
>>8741407 Tbh I want to know the answer too, however this is 4chan. You could get a lot of photogs self-promoting, or vendetta-chans whining about photogs that may be lovely to work with. So this isn't the best place to ask this question.
I guess this image has been circulating around facebook. From what I can see the only people commenting/sharing are whining about not getting recognition and and bawwing about how they're putting too much money into their own hobby.
I guess I vaguely get the idea, but it just seems like butthurt.
What do you think about people bawwing over the cost of their hobby?
>>8738342 i havent seen this picture before, but it would be a helpful thing to show people who get offended when their commission costs over $20. a lot of people thing a full set of armor should only cost $100 and a full dress should be $15, etc. other than that, im not sure why cosplayers would be sharing this image. yeah, cosplay is expensive, everyone knows that
I get where they're coming from, but it does read more as "I put so much of my own money into my own hobby and therefore other people are obligated to appreciate my work" than whatever they were going for. >listing food and drink as a cosplay supply wat
Feeling really good, gulls. For the first time ever, my comm and that of our sister city south of the border will be having a meetup together. Thanksgiving weekend! Our own members have expanded now that we have more exposure and there will be great feasting in this international metroplex. >Living the First Thanksgiving dream
>>8736452 >Do you have any stories to share about when you met one, or if there’s anything you would like to say to them? Stood in an elevator with Maki during Anime Matsuri while wearing Marine Kingdom. When she got off she turned around and looked at me and smiled while saying "wow! so beautiful!"
...should've been wearing Melty Mermaid because I was a puddle, I was so giddy
My worst con roommate experience was at Katsucon 2015 when I shared a room with a semi-famous cosplayer and her super awkward boyfriend.
>>out until 3am or later every night, made a ton of noise coming in each time and woke everyone up >>turned off the air conditioner at night because "it's February!!" Even though there were 6 people in the room, literally woke up in a puddle of sweat each morning >>spent the whole time bitching about how shitty other people's... Comment too long.

>big group of friends maybe 12 >have two rooms next to each other at big con >One designated quiet room one designated party night owl room >group splits about 5 to quiet 7 to party >couple in party room causes such drama that by the end of the weekend it was 2 to the party room and 10 in the quiet room
