I've ordered the first two and am hoping their measurements are accurate(length wise), and am putting off buying the others so I don't get ali-regret if they all turn out crap. I really want to dress like a victorian children's book character this summer though.
What do people think about the new Cosplay comp rules for Auckland? I can see a massive drop in entries with forms being due in three weeks before. Also I don't really understand the need to have judging the day before if they're capping the number of entries allowed? I think like doing one or the other would have been enough, doing both feels like overkill.
There's an entire thread dedicated to SU, lets have one for other Western toons. I'd love to see some characters or character designs that aren't often cosplayed. Pic related, I've never seen another person do Lazy Susan from GF.
>>8635927 Fair enough. Question though, why is it that SU is so popular to cosplay shit from, but all the other Western cartoons barely get any attention from cosplayers? Did all the Homestucks just grow up and miss painting themselves so they switched to the newest Flavor of the Month?
This is a thread for all you men out there who keep asking questions about getting started in lolita fashion.
Survey to get things started:

>>8612960 >How did you discover lolita? visual kei -> visual kei related websites -> doll dressup sites -> /cgl/ when looking for convention stories.
>Why do you want to wear it? i love the look. i wanted to wear it as a teenager, but i was broke. then i butched up because i did not want to have people make assumptions about my sexuality. now i am becoming more confident, and feel like it is almost time to finally wear lolita.

>2. Learn how to do natural makeup. Drag makeup will highlight all your masculine features. i guess i should be focusing on natural makeup more, even though my interest is in gothic. i will try to wear more natural looking makeup in casual settings to git gud.
>>8546384 I'm trying to start up an aristocrat wardrobe but I have no idea what I should invest in first. Any suggestions? I figured I could get away with a well tailored dress pant and a locally purchases button up for now. Should I get a vest or a jacket as my big ticket item?
I like the wig a lot, but I think the makeup is lacking. I feel like Rose needs big, dramatic lashes and pink lips to be Rose. Blush would be good too. Her appearance and personality is large and dramatic and stunning, makeup included.
>>8660948 I really don't like all the little tendril-y curls. Having some smaller curls in the back/on the top might be fine, but I think it looks really gross when pushed to the front. Especially since Rose Quartz typically only has two big ol' sausage curls over her shoulders like that.
Re posting due to old thread dying quickly after posted. I got my LolitaDesu lucky pack order in today. I'm a bit mixed on it, these are the first lolita items I've ever had. I'm a bit mixed because of the amount of items-I ordered the extra large size which is over 300 dollars and says "contains 5-11 items" I received 7- three of those being headbows and one being a low quality off brand tote bag. I'm pretty happy with the items themselves, especially the blouse I got. Overall I got three headbows, one blouse, one skirt, one JSK, and a... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>8667864 It was super crowded, the hostesses said they weren't expecting so many people to come. A lot of people showed up late and the movie didn't get stared until about 5:30-6 because people were still arriving and eating. I had a lot of fun, but there were way too many people in such a small building.
Picking up from the last UK thread, particularly about Tabitha Lyons’ Patreon, speaking as somebody who used to be friends with her. I’m not going to get too personal with Tabs but I think people deserve to hear some home truths about her.
There was a lot of discussion in that thread about Tabs’ business nous and also, once again, her qualifications for judging cosplay comps. As far as judging’s concerned, some of the commenters are spot-on. She doesn’t make her own costumes from start to end and is open about that nowadays (she used to be more elusive about...

What people need to understand is that Tabs is all about the cold, hard cash nowadays. Didn’t used to be the case, she used to have an active deviantART account and interact much more with her fans but the Artyfakes and Tabitha Lyons brands have gained momentum since then, and I think Tabs is now where she’s wanted to be for the past 3 years. Any pretence of her being an artist has been left in the dust. Tabitha Lyons has a big group of friends in cosplay circles and no enemies of note but otherwise, she’s only interested in people who...

>>8666312 For starters it never looks good. The white girls "Vivienne make up test" is some of the worst makeup I've ever seen, regardless of how you feel about her doing it politically. She didn't make herself look anything like Vivienne, she just globbed dark makeup on.
When you try to change your race with your makeup, one of two things happens:
1) Like the girl above, you think [black character's look] is nothing but their skin tone. You don't have do anything like contorting... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
