Are there usually a bunch of links and shit in the OP like the skincare threads? I can't recall.

What kind of makeup would you recommend for dark mori? I want to go fairly goth-y with it but I'm not sure if that's just my inner Hot Topic kid trying to escape or it's actually appropriate.

For mori people usually go for neutrals, so darker neutrals and natural shades like forest green, ash, dark brown etc might be good. Maybe using a cooler neutral for the lips like some cold pink tones ?

>>which style(s) do you wear?
Very simple sweet and oldschool mostly
>>how does your direct environment (school, work, town) react?
I left college a few months ago but I studied digital design, most people were weirdos so nobody really cared. Who'd look at the girl in a frilly skirt when there's people walking around in dinosaur kigurumis?
>>how do you conquer heat, cold, rain?
Heat by wearing thin OPs and flats, cold by wearing velvet, lots of layers...

Classic bordering on gothic sometimes
>how does your direct environment (school, work, town) react?
Mormons love lolita because it's modest so I don't get too much negative attention.

It's pretty much always cold here so I have to layer.

People still wear these?! This is a fad that died tok slowly imo.

This goddamn dress needs to be burned.
These wigs only look good in deco or more OTT outfits desu. And even then it really depends on the overall execution of the outfit

I will always see it as making a profit off someone else's intellectual property and tacky to boot.

that's sakuracon, right?
why the fuck do I recognize that
I've only been there once
also gear can often be the answer but it is not always the answer. won't magically make you good but if you use it right then you'll end up with good photos. just because you see a bunch of white lenses, red rings, or gold rings on people's gear doesn't mean they are good because of it. if they're good it's because they're good. maybe they were good already, maybe they became good later after buying it. maybe they're still not good but have expensive gear.
Keeping it real:

Don't do cosplay photography for any reason other than fun. You won't make money, and unless you're with a clique, you won't get any kind of recognition from it. You can't use cosplay shots in any kind of professional portfolio unless your subject's costumes are excellent, so 95% of the people you work with will not be good enough. And no matter how much you bust your ass on photos, no cosplayer will appreciate it.

Don't hit on cosplayers. They'll...

a friend wants to cosplay Hotaru from Dagashi Kashi, but is kinda stuck with finding a shirt. she came up with the idea of finding a similar lolita shirt but the the problem is, she's got pretty big titters and isn't exactly tiny japanese girl size all over. so - looking for shirts that look like pic related, lolita or not, that come in custom sizes or larger Western sizes. I'll update with exact sizes later, but she's nowhere near hamplanet, not above 42 inch underbust iirc.

Anyone know of any good prop making youtube channels? Nothing specific. It's more for keeping something on in the background while I work on my stuff.

I watch Tested for Adam Savage's prop and costume videos so if there's something similar to that it would be cool.

for this years's ACEN i'm planning on going as Ruby from RWBY, but the problem is
1) chicago summers are hot as balls
2) Ruby's outfit is almost all black and long sleeve
3) i sweat like a motherfucker
how do you gulls combat the heat? how do you save yourself from heatstroke and sweaty makeup?

Wear as little clothes as possible

Swimsuit versions of characters
I go to Acen every year, and honestly the weather is really hit or miss. Some years it's super hot and other years it's freezing. My best advice is making sure to drink a lot of water and if you need to, take breaks to freshen up, reapply deodorant, etc. I don't remember if Acen did this, but I know at Midwest one of the days it was especially hot there was an ice cream truck near the loading docks, so maybe we'll get lucky with that.
If you get really sweaty, bring along some unscented wet wipes with your deodorant and use those on your pits before reapplying it. Otherwise you're just putting deodorant on top of all your sweat and that's a pretty unpleasant feeling. I sweat like a motherfucker too, so I know this pain.

As for sweaty makeup, I carry those little makeup pads that keep you from getting oily (forget what they're called).

I am. I'm excited to see what kind of crowd is going to be there. I can imagine a whole bunch of your basic Brian-type, especially with a location that easily accessible from the inner city.
Anyone else?
I'm thinking about going but I'll wait around and see if they'll book any interesting guests or panels before I buy a ticket. So far the Scandinavian comic cons have been pretty terrible at the "comic" part and that's really all I want to deal with ATM.

Alright, so I know Comic Cons don't get as much exposure as anime ones here, and I don't think Bay Area /cgl/ers didn't really attend them (this is what Big Wow used to be and they're trying to move this a month before Fanime next year), but there's reports this con shot up to 30K, as much as Fanime's. Not bad for a first time con - way more attendance than Wizard World and Heroes and Villains Fan Fest last year.

Who went, and thoughts on the costume contest?

I was there on Sat/Sun, mostly selling in the AA. Sales were really good. I had little to no expectations for this con and sold as well as I do at Fanime, if not better. Based on the pics, looks like I missed out on a lot of the quality cosplays there.

Didn't stick around for the costume contest.

General rundown, based on my experience and word of mouth from friends:
-Panels were cool/interesting
-Dealers had a lot of variety including some obscure and hard-to-find stuff for super cheap
-"Museum" stuff was cool
-Generally a chill...

They kinda rushed through the costume contest, but it was way better handled than Fanime's Masquerade since 2012. Even though Masq in 2015 seemed to have gone to normal, it didn't drag a big crowd like it used to.

It kinda sucks most of the celebs were stuck to autograph signing instead of cool shit like panels, but Jeremy Renner and Nathan Fillion's were more than great.

I think part of the issue with on-site reg is that they weren't expecting so many on-site stuff - I got my...

Any tips on making a giant paper mache head, how to keep it mounted on you, and how to see through it? I'm planning on doing a Spooky Tsukasa crossplay for Anime Central. I think my body type will work well for this, as I am a lanky and tall, at 6'5". I'll do the school uniform as it was sized to fit a normal sized Japanese school girl, increasing the lanky horror.

Swimmer has a few cute ones but you need a shopping service to order from them.

Quick question about shopping services, as I haven't used them before. Will they work with you on ordering from multiple sites? I'd assume that they do, but just checking.

Either way I imagine there's a minimum $ amount for an order, I'll have to order a bunch so I'll add these to my list to get a little later on(first paycheck ayyy)
Yeah, there also isnt a minimum amount to spend but you will have to pay shipping for each to them..
