What does /cgl/ think of host-kei in general?
It is not too popular among white people, due to the fact it looks like shit on them ( or so, that's what I've seen ) but I am curious if you guys have any tips/opinions or such.
Since the new ownership of 4chan and the addition of extra boards, what says the /cgl/ community about the possibility of splitting Lolita fashion from cosplay?
>Lolita constantly is trying to assert that it is a fashion and not a costume
>Cosplay has absolutely nothing to do with Japanese fashion
>Lolita should never be fused with /fa/ because it's primarily male fashion
This conversation is as old as the board itself. Neither halves are active enough to require its own board. Also there is a lot of overlap regarding certain topics (taobao/ebay threads, makeup threads, then/now threads, etc.). And a lot of users are both cosplayers and lolitas. It's a really stupid idea to split the board.
It's been brought up before, but long story short: the board is too slow as it is. If we split it, you would have two nearly dead boards instead of one board. Plus there's a lot of overlap with sewing, makeup, hair and skincare, etc.
So gulls, couldn't find a non-archived hair general.
Question: what is the name of the colour of the hair at the base of her head? I love the whole look of this but no idea how to start dying it to get it like this. Same length hair only black (dyed - naturally redhead)
old thread died
Mint x White
Mint x Lavender to start
I'll be posting whatever I can find for these colors, but there's not much so it may not be the best.
Can we get a Blizzcon thread? It just happened this weekend.
Can we have another lifestyle thread? I was enjoying the previous ones.
To start things off:
>What does being a lifestyler mean to you personally?
>In what ways do you "live" the lifestyle or incorporate it into your life?
>Do you have any lifestyle goals? (Such as being able to wear it 24/7?)
Some random lifestyle thoughts: I know there's this stereotype of lifestylers being fakely sweet/cute, but I always strive to be very conscientious, polite, and kind in a genuine way... I sort of feel like that's one reason lifestyle attracts me, to strive to be polite and sweet (but not fakely so, not like a "kawaii" persona or something. Just, being polite.) I really wish my comm had lifestylers so we could get together for things like tea and embroidery hang-outs, instead of just going to boring restaurants all the time...
I think there's a difference between being all "kawaii uguuu~~" baby talk which is fake as shit and being genuinely polite and courteous. No one is going to shit on you for being genuinely polite and applying old-fashioned ethics and etiquette to your life. If they do, then they have a problem, because if no one is going to criticize them for being lumbering and noisy then they have no right to criticize you for being polite and proper.
Has anyone else watched Lark Rise to Candleford? It's such a cute underrated show, I feel like. All the outfits give me such inspiration and lifestyle feels
I have recently purchased a 3D Printer, I’m planning on using it to make bits and pieces not related to things I can immediately sow or make myself.
What are things /cgl/ would like to see 3D printed? I’m planning of making a business out of it selling cosplay items or additional trinkets from more obscure manga’s and shows.
Ie; Akumetsu masks, Behelits and other assorted stuff.
Last one maxed out >>8708170
Quite simple but really cute. I really like the photo as a whole too.
So when is and when is it not okay? Experiences? Cringe? Amazing ones? Discuss.
At what point will we have to forefeit going to conventions based on age? I know that I sometimes see people and think "well damn, you're a bit old to be here aintcha?" but I never really thought about what age that was, exactly.
Or, do you think that anime conventions will just start getting older as time goes on, like star trek cons did?
cómic conventions seem to be the better for the elderly. it's like "hey I was a young comic fan when this and that series was starting", and that's what people want to hear at those conventions.
While at anime cons, the seniority thing just sounds like nostalgia faggetry "hue hue I watched all the original Dragon Ball as it came out, you fucking newbs".

Polymorph plastic thread.
Anyone who has already used to for a cosplay?
Cosplay Thy Neighbor!
First thread here:
I posted this in the last thread too, but if you're interested in the manga, Viz is having a sale on a digital bundle: http://www.vizmanga.com/bundle/67
The sale lasts through… tomorrow, I think? (…and you should also pick up the Psyren bundle because that series is badass...)
Don't know if this was posted anywhere but a Lolita in Melbourne got married and had a lolita styled wedding.
If you're talking about that airmail chemical smell, it usually isn't persistent and will go away once you air it out for a while and wash it. If your scent is strong enough to transfer, it might be something else entirely.
You can try:
- airing it
- putting it into a bag with some kitty litter or baking soda
- soaking it with some vinegar (it neutralizes some scents)
