What is the key to making cosplay that is "so bad its good"?

>> No.10324608

You can't make "so bad it's good" on purpose, unless you're the lowcost cosplay guy. The person making it has to actually be trying to make it good.

Originality and creativity. Things like cardboard boxes for d.va are no longer funny because they’ve been done a million times. Something like pic related, few people have done a quadsuit Pokemon, and this one is so fucked up.

Also, know how to make things uncanny. Stepping just a little bit into the uncanny valley helps.

>> No.10324613

Like it says on the tin, make it so bad, its good.

Also helps if it has a lot of visual impact, no matter how bad the impact is.

Make it so memorable that it becomes seared onto somebody's brain even after eye bleach

Who are those from? I'm torn between getting puppy ears or bunny ears, so I'm interested to hear how these turn out. Please post a review when you get them!
Honestly, I really wish I could afford to buy ears from different makers just to see how different makers do things, and to create my own ranking/tiers I guess. I've been entering every giveaway on Instagram that I can find just to hopefully collect as many ears as possible.

I'm thinking about throwing money around and trying different types of dog ears but not many stores have them. its around a 9 week wait for these.

>> No.10324558

My personal tier list is similar to the one in OP except for a few stores. I bought a KittenandCutie set and resold them almost immediately because I didn't like the quality. I own 2 pairs of Lovelyfurr ears that I'm on the fence about keeping or trading because I don't like how stiff they are but love the shape and color.

I own a pair of RaspberryNeko MTO ears and I'd say they're good quality for the price. I waited about 7 weeks for mine (about a 6-week wait + 1-week shipping).
There are shops that do canine shapes more often than others (Lovelyfurr, KittenTherapyShop, Aukami, etc.), so you should keep an eye on them. Hosh has also announced corgi ears for her next release and last week's SR ears were canines too.

>> No.10324620

i got a couple pairs of their mto puppy ears and my opinion is that they’re worth the $25 and good for the price. nowhere near hosh or ac quality obviously, but they’re sturdy and have clean edges. wired all the way through so you can adjust the bends. the trimming and edges can be a tiny bit uneven on some areas. I wouldn’t pay over $40 for them because of the lack of detail, but puppy ears are folded anyways so you don’t see much of the inners. they’re also nice for using as a base if you want to airbrush your own shading onto them.

Same here. I think it’s backlash against all the high tea meets we used to have but it really feels like people are trying way too hard to seem lolrandom and non-lovely. Trampoline parks, paintballing and karaoke in crappy bars without even a private room. Then when someone tries to organize a regular tea meet people whine about how boring it is to just sit down and talk. But according to the pictures nobody even wore full lolita to the trampoline or paintball meets so doesn’t that defeat the purpose of a lolita meetup? By all means have fun playing paintball with your friends but what’s the point of making it a lolita meetup if you don’t wear lolita to it?

I last went to it in 2017 but very casually, went to Matsuri awhile after and can say I definitely prefer the smaller chill con experience and meeting more people. Also don’t have many con-goer friends to afford and enjoy bigger cons. Although I heard that Oni-con has kinda stagnated the past few years, is it still worth for someone who is more into socializing like me?

I collect Lolita dresses from certain collections just for the sake of collecting. I cannot even fit the dresses, but I really want to have them. I know Japanese Lolita’s collect dresses as well, but my friends think it is unhealthy/dumb that I buy dresses that don’t fit. Of course I buy dresses that I can wear too, but some are just pure for my collection.

>City>small town
I'd choose to live in a capital city. My wardrobe is already small, but cohesive. I'd like to enjoy more experiences in lolita. A capital city would have better restaurants, museums, theaters, concerts, gardens, and potentially brand stores. I don't care about comms or cons. I don't care about having the biggest wardrobe. And generally speaking, city folk don't care that much about lolita.

I guess I feel that way because I left a small town for a big city, and I ended up finding housing cheaper than my small town with a big enough closet. It's still small, but I'm a 20 minute bus ride from a bunch of brand stores and it's great.

>> No.10324605

The problem with underskirts is they don't do much if it's the waist that's too high. Could work (to a limit) if you're flat, but girls who aren't would generally do better looking for something low-waisted and then combine it with an underskirt. The underskirt alone isn't a universal solution, which was why people quite hyping them actually.

Additionally you'd want to be careful combining them, the other reason they quit being hyped is because girls wore poofy AP skirts with built-in petticoats over a less poofy underskirt, giving a rocket silhoutte to the skirt.

>> No.10324611

LLs from baby/aatp are comfiest imo. I have a couple LLs from IW but they are on the snug side. It could be because they are older shoes however.

IW in general has been my favorite for accommodating my height and long torso. I use an underskirt with their short dresses that don't have lace trims to add that bit of length.
Their blouses are pretty good for sleeve length and shoulder width for me, especially compared to other brands. OTKs are also very stretchy and comfortable.

>> No.10324560

Fanime is a con where you go to meet up with friends and party, not a con where you attend for content. If you have friends who are attending, great. If not, you're better off going to a different con.

>> No.10324592

Used to be my favorite west coast con but I haven't been since '17 because it's gotten so hard to get a room. One thing I'll say is that if you're a serious cosplayer it's a good con to go to because there are so many good photoshoot locations within walking distance of the con center and the weather tends to be cool for the time of year so it's good for heavy elaborate stuff you wouldn't want to wear at AX.
