How do you go about affording your cosplays? I just got into j-fashion and was so excited to find out about how cheap taobao was, but when I realized how much shipping was even with SS it gave me second thoughts. What do you anons do to afford your stuff?

I'll start with mine, but I'll warn you that they're not very interesting really. #1 >con is in close proximity to a Pentecostal ministry event >fleeting eye contact with conservative, also oddly dressed (in their own way) families >mothers with children and gruff fathers with handlebar mustaches are constantly scowling >moms shielding their kids' eyes >refusing...

Halloween night >outside of a bar with friends, waiting for our Uber >indignant "Are you fucking gay?" bullshit >this one is notable because the person saying this shit shit was a disgusting, unattractive neckbeardy type >blamed us for the Uber taking too long It's halloween night dude what the fuck. You're old enough to drink, and this was in 2014, we live in southern california, and you're still acting like this.
>>9003616 Weird little exchange from about a week ago. Some nutter wanted to play "dog catcher," I guess. >Riding the bus home and I'm wearing nanchatte >Pretty quiet, not many people on thank goodness >Minding my own business dicking around on my phone when I notice this older lady giving me the nastiest stink eye >Ignore her initially, no biggie, people stare.

>>9001677 That you like them unfortunately doesn't mean that other people will also like your photos. If you do it for the followers: try to find out what content gets the most attention and is liked most, then do more of that. Use the right hashtags. If you want more specific concrit, post your IG or some of your photos, and we can tell you what you could improve.
>>9001677 Make sure you're tagging appropriately. Spamming irrelevant tags is not only useless but puts people off liking or following. Interact with users you like. I mean, be genuine about it, don't just spam "kawaiiii" on all of their photos, but little interactions can make someone interested in your insta, especially if you're nice. Also don't go onto someone's profule and like the last 50 photos they've posted, I have two people who keep doing that every month or so and even... Comment too long.

>>9002532 >don't go onto someone's profile and like the last 50 photos they've posted oh gosh, I pretty much do this to people when i follow them for the first time because i genuinely like what they've posted.
I have some designs for some print dresses drafted, but I want dark colours. Is anywhere similarly priced to spoonflower but can manage a good black ink? (I'm in the UK so options shipping to the UK/locally are preferred)
Can you guys help me find more like pic related? I love the simple yet feminine, elegant but cute look that japanese fashion has mastered so well. Inspiration as well as stores would be appreciated <3 Wonder Rocket is great but if theres anything similar in the US even better because lord knows i dont have the wallet for that kind of shipping Sorry if this is the wrong place to post this
>>9044972 Do you want earth colors, or do you like pastels as well? Do you have more reference photos? I love cute and feminine clothing, but there's many ways to do it. I've decided to go with Larme kei. It's really feminine and more on the mature side of things, but cute nonetheless
I feel like Joann's is good for people who are still beginners and aren't accustomed to different types of fabric yet. If I can avoid it I do, shit is a lot more cheaper online but it's always a gamble.
I get a majority of stuff from Spandex House, Dharma Trading, and fabric.com. But I do like Joann's because I don't need to order swatches and wait.
An uncommon place I visit is 5 Below for eva foam. The have these kid yoga mats for $5 that are around 8cm thick.
Walmart has spray paint and other hardware basics for cheap. Dollar tree has foam core but it's really only good for structural stuff to them cover and fill with expanding foam, spackle or bondo. Goodwill and thrift stores can have super random stuff like rolls of foam and tools. Also my preferred place for shoes and boots since I can't justify buying new shoes for cosplay unless they're super versatile. Randomly a lot of smoke shops carry basic colored lenses
Joanns 5 for $5 Simplicity and other pattern sales are the only good cheap way to get patterns.... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
