As I've been planning a cosplay recently, a thought popped into my head. The cosplay I was planning was more of a casual look and the thought crossed my mind that I could go hyper accurate to it or I could take it on as a "how it would be executed in real life feel", a sort of lived-in look. I can't find a good way to exactly explain what I mean, but pretty much, when does /cgl/ think it's okay to take some artistic liberties to really become the character except in real life and when do you think it's more appropriate to be very loyal to the original...

>>8902274 It's normal for cosplayers to alter some elements for multitude of reasons.
Certain hair styles do not translate well in real life so cosplayers have been known to tone some elements down for practical reasons. Others change clothing items and lengths to better flatter their figure. In terms of your question, Jojo cosplayers routinely use shiny fabric to bring out the sparkly look the characters have even though the source material shows otherwise
>>8902274 I cosplay mostly from comics, and since comic artists often aren't costume designers, they don't have always create costumes that can exist. Seams are missing from important places, body parts are outline in a way that just isn't possible, etc. I take liberties where possible so that 2D drawings can work in the real world.
Well. I've decided I will cosplay a fairly sexy character but I am scared that will change my personal life. I live in a small town and this feeling is crushing me. I really want to do it but I'm already giving up. Should I do it or nah!?
Seriously ask yourself this anon. Do you find yourself pleasant to the eye in the cosplay you want to do? Or is it one of those attention grabbing joke cosplays?
If you've been putting in the effort, and you feel like it'll be a good fit, then by all means, go for it, and honestly, unless you get into some kind of crazy drunken shenanigan while cosplaying as that character, it shouldn't affect your normal everyday life too much.
>>8899842 My decision to attend or not are going to be based on very different things compared to that of majority of people. >How do you decide if you're going to attend a convention or not?

>How do you decide if you're going to attend a convention or not? Friends. I'm not going to a con without a bunch of my friends unless there's something amazing about it I need to see. That being said, unusual events draw me in, not guests. Something like a big Miku concert would get me to go somewhere I wouldn't normally. >Are there ones you always buy a badge for regardless of content? Kind of.

>>8899474 You might be able to, but I wouldn't count on it. It seems that the WAC members seem to rotate in and out, and there is a fair amount of traffic that passes through. It's mostly a thing meant for you to be able to rest and/or repair your cosplay.
Just wondering how you guys feel about cosplays that feature a specific "rendition" of a certain character. For example, "80s clothing Sailor Moon", or "Steampunk Evangelion."
My opinion: I don't mind them, but sometimes people put on too many "alt" layers. I can appreciate a 70s Sailormoon cosplay or a Steampunk Eva costume, but a genderbent 80s Rockband Sailormoon costume is a little too much for me.
I know Buzzfeed's Try Guys in no way represent the entire cosplay community, but their whole cosplay bit in pic... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
So i'm looking to create a plague doctor costume for a friend of mine, what would I be needing to make in terms of the robe? every resource I find just talks about the mask. What material should I be looking at? I've already decided I'd rather not use leather.
So as an expat living abroad, I just found out about Seoul Comic World. It's a monthly convention held at one of two convention centers in Seoul.
This month (3.19 - 3.20) it will be held at AT Center. I have absolutely no idea what to expect. I've read online, apparently, that you have to register your costume online, bring everything with you, and change inside of the cosplay-changing area.
That, and I have no idea if my sources are right, but apparently the entry free is ~4,000won (or $3.35). But I can't read Korean, and the entire website is... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Never heard of this, but I'm interested in hearing your story once you go. I don't live in Korea currently, but there is a chance I might go to Seoul as an exchange student next year. It would be nice to know how the convention is, if I end up going there during my (possible) exchange period.
>>8897413 As you said, official merch isn't as big there. The doujin (dongin) stuff is way more popular, since it's cheaper. Doujinshi/zines are really popular too, and they sell out pretty quickly for popular artists.
oh! oh!!!! wow oh man i've been wondering about the Comic Worlds in Seoul and Busan for so long! glad to see someone else show an interest in it. I've also found it a wee bit difficult to find info on it even though I do read Korean. the entry fee is indeed very cheap and it's basically a big AA. lots of extremely cheap fan-made anime goods. they do have some events though, and they list them on the website beforehand so you can see and sign up for some of them. my friend who went said it's just a big shop. unfortunately they didn't partake in cosplaying...

I had my second con ever a little while ago, and I cosplayed as Lucy from Elfen Lied. It was my first fully selfmade cosplay and quite a few people wanted pictures which was really exciting for me. But one encounter that really got to me was this semi-young kid (14? Boy? Girl? Not sure.) who came up to me, and with this super shaky voice and eyes wide as they can be asked if they could give me a hug. I was quite baffled but agreed and after that they thanked me with an ever shakier voice and said something that i/the cosplay/the character is amazing (they mumbled, couldn't... Comment too long.

A bunch of friends and I were waiting for a friend outside a con, they were cosplaying Homesteak and I was cosplaying Marvel's Patriot. As we're standing there a mum and her really young son (3-5 something, very tiny) approached us and she asked what we were doing etc, meanwhile her son was staring his eyes out at me. Right before they left I kind of waved at him and the kid shone up like the damn sun and waved back at me with both hands while trying to keep up with his mum. So that was cool. Though I'm pretty sure he thought I was Captain America.
Story 1: Ive told it on here before, but me and a friend split the cost of getting a picture with Bruce Campbell, and it turns out Nathan Fillion, taking a picture a few booths over and photobombed us. We got to speak to him for a bit, very nice (and good-looking) dude. Apparently Bruce and Nathan do this to each other all the time and we were just happy victims of the cross-fire.
Story 2: Cosplaying as Captain Cold (The CW) and walk by a little girl with her family whos dressed up as The Flash. As we cross I do the "Im watching you" hand motion (pic... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Didn't see one in the catalog, so mori-kei thread? Natural-kei is fine too, unless someone wants to convince me that they're actually two completely different styles.
Feel free to dump whatever you have, but if anyone has examples of coordinates that successfully incorporate pink (or any other springtime color, for that matter), I'd love to see them! Also interested in mori headwear.
>>8895963 >unless someone wants to convince me that they're actually two completely different styles I mean, they are. Choco was clear when she made the mori girl mixi group that she considered it to be different from natural-kei. But if you mean convince you that they deserve separate threads, I don't really mind having both in the same one either, since they don't tend to survive well on their own.
