I don't sew very well, so I alter cosplays I order, but I had a dream where I was at a convention and this kid called me out on not being a real cosplayer because I didn't make everything from scratch. Then a whole lot of other people started bashing on me all at once right after the kid spoke. I was forced to back up to the top floor of the convention center and I fell off over the balcony then woke up because suddenly I was in a falling dream.
Nostalgia time. Remember "the" Hot Topic dress that came out in 2005 or so? And the dramatic posts saying that lolita was "now dead" because girls would go into Hot Topic, buy the dress and declare themselves lolita? Good times.
so someone just commissioned me to make this outfit. this is my first commission ever and i have no idea how much to charge. the materials cost around 40 something usd and i can probably knock it out in a few days. any advice or suggestions would be helpful. thanks guys
>>8702104 If you aren't sure yet of how long exactly it will take, then you probably shouldn't be doing these things, but let's give you the benefit of the doubt.
For now since it looks like it won't take you too long and there's no rush on you, it's better if you try to look at prices of similar cosplayed that are commissioned by people of your skill level, and just judge by that. In future commissions you might want to raise or lower your price to pay yourself a fair wage etc. Always... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.

Earl grey and vanilla chai, I love anything with caffeine and have gone for tea casually before
Real talk though I better get dozing cat next time, I have never seen such a cute, non creepy cat print (I love cats but AP and other overly sweet prints make me cringe). I have a severe thirst for this print
How has cosplay/jfashion affected your life? I'm sure most of us were embarassing weebs at one point, or still are, but hobbies generally help sculpt the person you become, how you dress, etc. Share stories about your teenage weaboo anctics, clothing phases, cosplay improvement, etc. Has your hobby bettered your life in any way?
I wasn't acting like a weaboo in my teenage years because I was too embarrassed to do that (or even to do normal things, I'm glad I'm not as anxious now). But actually I was really annoying my sisters and tried to make them watch too many anime. They got tired of me really fast and now whenever the topic of bf/husband is brought up they immediatly say I'm gonna marry a japanese guy or a video game character as a joke.
I started to study Japanese in high school because of that. Since I couldn't study german in college because of my mediocre level... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.

>>8716258 I have two rods in my closet. One is for normie clothes and the other is for lolita clothes. I sort by article of clothing, then color. So in this order: blouses, boleros/cardigans, skirts, dresses. Then I rgb in each category. My wardrobe is small enough (<20 main pieces) that this works well for me.
We all know prop makers make a lot of money with ebooks, but how to they protect their content? Every ebook on propmaking I read so far didn't have any disclaimer regarding protection of their original content and ideas. Is it even protectable? What is keeping other people from just copying it and selling books with their content as their own? I'm wondering because recently, that one person from my cosplay comm is starting to sell their own horrible ebook with content of a rather famous prop maker and it's basically just a translation in their own language, they didn't even change the title. Is it really just bad manners or legally debatable?
They can't protect shit if they aren't patenting it, and in order for them to patent it it needs to be innovative and new. Just because cosplayers figured out how to do it on their own though is nothing, since professional prop and costume builders have been doing it already. It's protected as much as any ebook is without the author getting it copyrighted by a legit agency. If you don't get a copyright filed, you can't sue for lost profits or punitive damages.
I do Cosplay for 12 years and it was pretty nice. I make some big cosplay projects and many people like my costumes. But more and more cosplay bores me. I feel not too old or whatever, just my Cosplay spirit is gone. I still like it to visit events and meet friends... but cosplay is no longer the the big main thing for me. I still wear a cosplay of a event but always old but good costumes or simple and nice-looking costumes. Always I think about to do a new hobby.
Now to all Ex-Cosplayers: what kind of hobby do you have now? I want to... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>8713772 Never too late to pick up a new hobby. :)
I've been cosplaying for 12 years too, and I know what you mean. Used to be I would get super hyped for cons, making 2-3 new costumes for each con, bringing up to 6 (?!?!) costumes per con.
I guess it's like drugs - once the rush fades after you've been using awhile, the effect fades. It gets stale. You're used to the attention, you don't need to make new friends because you know most of the people there, the novelty is gone.

>>8713772 This past year, I have had no drive to make new costumes, and even going to some cons felt like more of a chore than anything. But just recently I got a resurgence and found a whole bunch of new costumes I want to do. And then some friends told me their plans and I got excited for those. And then we started thinking of group ideas and I am back to being excited about it again. So, I guess it can come in waves? Take a break for a bit and see what is happening later on and see if there are any new costumes or ideas... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
We haven't had one of these in a long, long time. Post ideas for meetups, about your favourite type of meetup activity, what has worked well in your comm, and what hasn't. Any croquet success stories or pottery meet horrors?
Also, for those who have organised swap meets, how did you put them together? Our comm has never had one, but there's an issue of where to hold one. Should garments be laid out or just brought in bags? What works best with a swap meet?
>>8713809 Disclaimer: I have never run a meet, so in an ideal world where the logistics don't matter, I think these would be thematically cute: >ice skating meetup >portrait meetup (in this one the Lolitas pose for a long time and someone professional paints a portrait of the comm together) >baking meetup (it's messy though) >ice sculpture meetup >yacht meetup...

In my experience, it's pretty easy to book a room at a university or a library. Some place clean with a lot of tables you can use. It's also useful to have a washroom or a nearby reserved room for changing to try on stuff. If you're selling stuff at a swap meet, I recommend laying your stuff out if you're comfortable with people touching your stuff because people are probably going to ask to take stuff out of the bags and try it on. Also, bring a stack of post it notes to label your stuff and price them.
