cgl, im a figure skater and have desperately wanted to do a program in a (wearable) dress, but i havent seen anything with figure skaters in it. drop your favorite figure skating girls or cosplayers! pic related: im an overall skinny girl with muscular legs, and i already cosplay. and i dont suck at skating. (for those who need reference, i can almost do a double flip.)
Forgive me if this is way old news, but I just went to JoAnn for the first time in months and was boggled by all the nerdy licensed fabrics. A dozen bolts of different Dr. Who, obviously a ton of Marvel and DC, Zelda, even Walking Dead (that one was a bit of a head-scratcher). I thought it was really neat, but I had no idea what I would use any of them for.
So, ITT: cosplays/coords/clothes/etc. made with licensed fabrics? Preferably ones that don't suck?

>>What things do you like about it? the marriage of innocence and subversiveness. quality clothing from independant brands (even the biggest brands are small compared to mass produced fast fashion). a unique silhoutte that has a seeming infinite range of variations within a rather structured rule set.

You seriously made a thread for this OP? We aren't even close to having international level cons so why give people a anonymous platform to make international level drama? >Most of the convention is teen weebs though >Doubt they know about CGL
Alright, I thought this subject would be interesting. What are some alternates of popular characters that nobody seems to cosplay for some reason? My example is the plethora of cute Madoka outfits that are ignored in favor of their magical girl ones. Anything goes, I'm just interested in seeing more cases like this.
>>8863003 In your case, your pic is a collab between a Japanese fashion brand & the Madoka franchise. It serves not much meaning to the series itself. Hence it is understandable that not much people does costume out of it.
Staying on the topic, any Vocaloid outfits in Project Diva franchise. There's so many songs to pick with a variety of costumes specially designed for the songs. The default versions are so overdone, might as well pick a cute costume from a nice PV.
>>8863030 Oh yeah, the collab picture was the only thing I have on my phone but I meant the cute card outfits that're laying around too -- you'd think with all the fandesigns floating around people would indulge in more official stuff.
Good point though, you don't really see any vocaloid cosplayers that aren't just the same couple outfits.
I'm trying to throw together a valentines themed coord with stuff that I already have. I have a white peter pan collar blouse that I'll put the collar over the cardigan so my neck isn't so boring. And I'll wear the cardigan open, with the two buttons at top buttoned. Otherwise I really need some recs for accessories that I can get domestically (I live in the US); I feel like what I have right now just looks cheap.
>>8835729 maybe go for some heart stuff? A heart shaped or patterned purse could be cute, something in white/pink. You could find heart clips and jewelry on amazon and most normie stores honestly. check modcloth for more unique stuff too.

>>8864540 There's a huge comm where I live and they do meets all the time but I'm not ready to join yet. I kind of hate people in general so joining a comm can wait for me. However, I'm not looking to be a lone lolita forever, but I don't really care if no one sees me in it. I just keep on buying dresses too. I think I just like the clothing itself and I've really approached the fashion with a collectors intent, and not just a hobby.
So are you in it for the comm or do you like wearing the... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I feel like the cosplay community has changed too much. I feel like everyone's trying to outdo each, whether it's through sex appeal, over the top costumes/props or cosplaying the latest popular series first. It's all about going further and further. I know this kind of competition has probably always existed but lately it just feels so crazy.
>Been lurking lolita for years >Know basics >Think about colour combination in irl too >What bothers me most is that my nightgown and pants are slight differend shades of gray (gown older than pants) >Feel irritated every time I go to sleep >Lolita is ruining my sleeping habits
do you bring up the fact that you cosplay in job interviews? what about when they google your name beforehand and they already know? most people consider anime drawings to be poison in an artists professional portfolio, but what about pictures of your costumes? do you keep it quiet as though it's a liability, or pronounce it proudly as a critical aspect of your skills and personality? does it depend on what the job/company/career is?
I saw a girl in the fashion industry post about making specs of cosplays to show versatilily. I'm pretty proud of my flats as well, and I'm supposed to be working on a portfolio and wondering if I should put in more fanciful things as well, since I can't illustrate for shit.
What's your biggest pet peeve when it comes to cosplay? What bothers you more than anything in the cosplay industry, that multiple cosplayers seem to do?
Example: My biggest pet peeve is when cosplayers take "sexy" bed photos in cosplays(characters) that are in armor or fighting gear, or just look out of place because of the characters personality. I don't mind if people want sexy bed photos, but if you are dressed as a warrior or something it seems so out of place! Plus, wouldn't you much rather have a badass photo of yourself in an...

>>8857110 Sexy bed photos are cringe and awkward enough as it is, but an ex-friend of mine did a bunch of Mememe ones on a clearly hotel bed. Nothing is worse than trying to be sexy and seeing something out of place in the cosplay, like having it in a bad room or out of place items in the background.
>>8857110 People whinging about what other people do and not just minding their own business and tending to their own cosplay goals/creations. Just do your cosplays, be as good as you can be and don't worry about what others are doing so much that you have to bitch about them.
What do you do when you want to buy a certain dress but you can't quite bring yourself to buy it? I want this dress and have wanted it forever but now it's for sale I'm not entirely sure. It would fit in with the rest of my wardrobe. Should I just buy it anyway in case I regret not buying it?
