>>9094153 >>9094174 I don't think it's the hobbies themselves that make people cringe, it is the air of how speshul it is to do such speshul things 'whilst befrilled'
>>9094186 I always think these types belong in a pirate coord at a Rennfaire. It's embarrassing to be around these types out in public, I avoid them so I'm glad they boast about it so I know in advance.
What's the deal with ACP events at conventions? I just went to AX and it seemed like every single person I knew was working for them wearing a costume for various booths. Is it paid? Is it cool? How do you get a job with them? Is there a union or something?
>>9093893 ACP is the main agency and point of contact between industry and volunteers for those who wish to volunteer and work officially at industry booths at cons. >is it paid? No. You get a free badge. Hotel MAY be provided, but usually it's by the industry company. >How do you get a job with them? Volunteer positions are usually posted 1-3 months ahead of the con on ACP's website, under Events. You make an account on ACP, apply for the said... Comment too long.

>>9093962 As stated, badge, and sometimes goodies/free merch/access to guests (depends on booth). Generally you will work every day of the con in some capacity but figure half a day each. You get a free badge, sometimes an exhibitor badge (depends on booth), which is worth its weight in gold if you aren't one of the groups who gets early entry to the hall and you are trying to buy stuff. You may have competition depending on the popularity of the costumes/character you are applying to. If you want a more or less guaranteed... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Okay, so I have a problem I can't seem to find a solution to. As of right now, I don't wear Lolita very often, maybe once a month, so my clothes don't get a lot of wear. I'm also very mindful to keep my clothes clean and don't wear them anywhere that may end up getting them dirty or smelly (around smokers, or at restaurants). I always wear bloomers and a blouse, so my skirts and JSKs can be worn a couple times before I wash them since they don't touch my skin.
I washed two of my skirts, and everything was fine until they started to dry, when... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
It's obvious that the costs to attend cons have gone up over the years with admissions, hotels and travel costs, major cons are no longer relatively cheap to go to anymore. If the con is close by to you, then you are one of the lucky ones that get to save some money.
Last year at dragoncon I spent damn near $2000 and a damn good chunk of that went to hotel and travel costs.
If it's in driving distance... >$20 a day for food >$30-50 depending on badge >$50 for merch (more or less if i see anything I like) >$20 per 200 miles of driving for gas >$50 per night of hotel (I normally room with people/go with friends)
Going to one this weekend, for Sat/Sun together I'm looking at spending about $140. It's a smaller con but I'm paying for a room as well.
Too fucking much. When I think of how much money I've spent planning for cons, I honestly consider not cosplaying anymore. I can still pay my bills/have a decent savings but it's not a small amount of money
My boyfriend doesn't understand why I'm interested in lolita fashion and doesn't like how much the pieces sell for. He's into other expensive hobbies like motorbikes and cars though so I'm confused why he can't connect the dots. I still wear it on weekends regardless of what he thinks of it.
>>9052834 This thread is bait for sure but just so everyone knows don't book with Dave Yang. He only edits your photos if you're his friend. I got mine back completely untouched after about 3 months of waiting. I guess he forgot about them. Not that I really care about skin smoothing, special effects, etc but it was part of his $175 package.
Came in late in the last thread. I'm more of a vidya cosplayer since I can barely keep up with any show. >>9029875 First pic really reminds me of Mabel from Gravity Falls. I can also see you as Leliana from Dragon Age in her chantry robes or Miranda in her Mass Effect 2 outfit.
Hey guys I hav a con coming up and my gf and I want to wear Team Instinct armbands from Pokemon Go to show our affiliation, but honestly I've got no idea how to go about it and I thought you guys would have the best knowledge about this kind of thing. Should I make a patch or a decal or just paint it on??
I want to do a cosplay with gag breasts. What would be the best material to imitate anime jiggle physics? I basically need something with the movement/consistency of water balloons (obviously real water balloons are out of the question).
>>9094451 seriously this. they work. I've had mine for a month and they haven't popped. go to party city and get nice balloons for this. I double ballooned mine just in case too. hell, I've even dropped them on the floor several times. still havent popped.
Has anyone tried out the new lockshop wigs yet? I've owned a lot of theirs over the last few years and those new ones look like shit. the manufacturers changed or something. any reviews? specifically the new mermaid wigs?
I may be moving to dreamholic now but theirs look really messy all the time. I need a new Lolita wig and I feel lost. haha
>>9091919 My friend got a newer Lockshop wig as part of a wig grab bag from Lolita Collective. Not sure what style it was, but it was shiny like a costume wig and the wefts fell apart just from taking it out of the bag. By the time we got it packaged back up to exchange it already had a bald spot on the cap just from light handling. Luckily she got an older model wig that isn't falling apart in our hands. Can't say that this will happen with all the new wigs, but proceed cautiously.
>>9091809 Oh man I was just looking through this issue with my new beau last night. He wanted me to show him sailor lolita and the men's counterpart to lolita. It feels nice to have found someone who really digs you and thinks youre cute in lolita, but like not in a creepy way or anything.
