MGSV thread! Interested in seeing some good bionic arm props and tutorials for them.
What's a secret you have that, if it ever got out, would absolutely tarnish or ruin your reputation in the cosplay or lolita community?
Ever lie about making part of a costume to win a contest? Purposely ruin someone's burando?
It doesn't even have to be related, if you once stabbed a guy in a dark alley or did scat porn your comm would likely not look on that too kindly. Fess up.
I'm pretty sure I'd be blacklisted from my comm and other local ones if they found out how often I cap the stupid shit they say and spread it around the rest of the internet. I do this all the time too. Drama is so fun.
Anyone on the board going to AMA? I've never been before but I'm going for that Saturday. Seems small-ish from what I can tell.
Last I went was years ago, I was thinking of going with a friend this year and saw the $60 at-the-door price... anons, is it really worth it? Looking at the site, it doesn't seem much bigger, and it was the tiniest con I've been to.
No. It's always dead and tiny every single year. I've been going since 2009 and it hasn't grown an inch. It's fun because I like seeing my friends and there are lots of young cosplayers there and it's nice to see little weeks just enjoying themselves. I end up by the hotel bar each year drinking with the parents. It's fun, but not with 60 dollars. I got my ticket through their Groupon deal for like 25 bucks.
Didn't see one in the catalog.
I'm interested in the fashion, and I would love to see inspiration photos.
ILD is on Saturday. What's your plans?
Does /cgl/ have plans?
My comm looks like its fighting again so theres two ILD meet ups. ill be traveling around on ILD and im not close to fluent in the target language so i think ill dress up and post a picture to instagram. Even if i was home with my regular comm both the meets sound messy or like something i wouldn't enjoy.
i was going to dress up to meet the comm closest to me finally (been in the fb group for like a year) but they're a $40 ferry ride away and im poor so instead i'm just going to put something on for 10 minutes and instagram it so i can pretend i celebrated
Anyone planning on attending Armageddon next weekend?
Has anyone tried the new Yaya Han gloves/socks/boot cover pattern (McCall 7397)? Is it any good?
I hope it is, because I'm pathetic when it comes to drafting glove patterns. I can't do it to save my god damn life, it's like I have a mental block. Ball gown? Sure! Fine! Tracing my hand to make a glove? Awful.
I'm traveling to Europe soon (Ireland, Italy, Germany, England and France), and I was wondering if anyone could suggest cute stores to visit ( because all the live journal pots are super old). I'm already going BTSSB in Paris. Anything else worth checking out
When you say cute stores what are you after exactly? Lolita/jfashion stuff or places with a cute atmosphere in general? Because if it's the first one then you're gonna have a hard time finding anything in the UK. I think there was a shop in North London/Camden selling overpriced lace monsters but I've never been there myself. Always wondered why Paris seems to get all the cute shops instead, I guess it must be the Japanese tourists tho
I'm assuming you'll be going to London. I'd definitely recommend the Fan Museum in Greenwich, it's the daintiest place I've been to in my life & the exhibition is beautiful, they also have a conservatory where they do incredibly good value afternoon tea. There's also
a Laduree around Piccadilly but that's pretty expensive obvs.
In terms of shopping Shoreditch has two shops that carry Korean fashion (Our Wandering Minds and Glassworks) if that's your thing. There's...

Let's see some of the good, bad, and weird of North America's indie lolita.
Pic is one I saw pop up in a few fb groups. Looks cute at first but looking closer I'm not too sure about the naked baby/women.
Subject Line literal.
Not OP but i recommend giving this a look. Hes pretty good at explaining how to make armor from free form.
Posts have been kind of slow. I'll try to find some new content.
didn't see one in the catalog
Oh god i am so sick of this girl on my facebook.
I present to you, B.
B used to dress in typical pinup/edgy geekgurl/.. then discovered Melanie Martinez,tumblr aesthetic and lolita fashion. Now she is wearing lolita everyday, but it's her own kind of lolita guise!1! She mix lolita fashion and Lolita (as in the goddamn movie from Kubrick) together and if you say anything about it she'll tell you that she can do whatever she wants anyway!!. I only keep her because her bunny is super cute
Dropped my pic woops.
And no this isn't a wig but her real hair and she refuses to wear a wig or tone it down because she think it looks good like that. Same for her makeup.
ITT: Ouji and EGA (aka "boystyle," "boystyle lolita," "homme aristo," etc.) coords that feature main pieces with an actual fucking print. Not a pattern (like stripes or tartan) but a legit print.
No promo shoots please, just actual coords made by actual boystylers.
Old thread hit image limit
Discuss/Post cosplays, meet ups, panels, etc etc.
Here are some pics from the first day
Let's have fun gulls
