Do you feel like your cosplay options are limited because you can't wear a mask over your glasses?

Pic basically related.

>> No.10494537

What kind of dumb question is that?
Nothing's limited. Clean your glasses with some dish liquid and gently rub it off. Your glasses are much less likely to fog up, even with a mask. It's not fucking magic.

I'm trying to do a cheap cosplay of balsac from gwar but so far I only figured out how to do the two jaws and how to get them into shape. i dont know how to set ir up so it stays on my head. Some people have a hat on but i have long hair and wanted to use it for the cosplay, and I also want it to be at a wide enough angle so it looks like the old balsac. What's a good method of mounting a big mask like this?

>> No.10494373

Either a thich elastic strip (possibly with a vecro attachment) or a black headband. You won't be able to avoid using some kind of all-over head attachment. The pieces look too heavy to try spirit gumming some magnets to your temples lol.

Holy shit guys I just farted, this one is really rancid, do you smell it?

Don't limit yourself by looking only for guides on your specific character. Look for resources for any type of foam amor build, masks, LEDS, and etc. KamuiCosplay, PunishedProps, and Odin's Workshop are your best friends now. They also sell how-to books and patterns (either basic or character specific). I highly recommend buying atleast a basic pattern if you don't know where to begin.
Here's some tutorials that should help get you started, but I recommend combing through their accounts for what will suit your work the best:

>is there a good free or low-cost digitizing embroidery software?
>all I can find are >$400 or subscription-based

I use ink/stitch, which is a free extension for Inkscape (also free). It's definitely not gonna give you all the features of a proper digitizing software, you can't just pop a picture in as if it'll be good to go, and it's good to have some prior knowledge of programs like adobe illustrator or inkscape itself, but after watching tutorial videos for it on youtube it's easy enough to use assuming you dont need to do anything too complicated with it.

What are your opinions on cosplay photographers?

>> No.10493903

I would recommend doing maybe a couple of free to cheap shoots to build a current portfolio; post in your local convention groups or forums or whatever you have. The more you build your portfolio, the more you can steadily increase your prices. Those initial cosplayers you work with will be the best bet to get the word of mouth going and build your audience as well.

>> No.10493908

what >>10493903 said basically. do tfd. a lot of people like that, and it means you and the cosplayer both can do what you want with the photos so it's a win win.

Generally, the ones that look artistic and cool (like lulu) are girls or occasionally chill gay guys, and the ones that look creepy and awful (like OP) are scrotes. Pretty easy split.

There are a few issues of vol 3 on eBay right now, but most of them are shipped from japan so after shipping you’re spending over $30. Also to give you a heads up the pattern is just a plush and the hood isn’t detachable, so if you want a functioning bag with a removable hood you’re going to have to tweak it a little.

Ok /cgl/, I come from /fit/ and once Corona-chan is gone, I want to go to an anime convention to show off my gains. I've always wanted to go to a convention in a sea of nerds and be the best looking one there, since it would never happen in real life. I've been a skinny nerd all my life and finally got muscle to show off so I figure a convention (something I already enjoy) would be a good place to showcase my gains.

Reasons why:
>good opportunity to show off my gains
>get to turn away women for once
>dirty looks from dyel virgins will fuel my gains for later
>might meet a big tiddy attractive anime girl that, seeing me in contrast to all the nerds might trick her into thinking I'm attractive.

My questions are:
>what character/costume/outfit would best show off my gains?
>how big do I have to be realistically? I know normie standards are pretty low.
>do tattoos ruin the effect of cosplay? Because I have some tattoos

For context, I'm 6', 165 lbs at about 17% body fat with pretty good muscle definition. By the time convention season rolls around however, I plan to be about 185 lbs at 13% body fat.

This, anime cons are pretty normie now so there will be many non-nerds there that you have no chance of looking or acting better than.

Also, doing /fit/ just to try to get women is cringe. Fitness is for improving yourself for yourself first, and everything else that comes with being /fit/ is just happy accidents. You can look like Fabio, but if you're a sperg you're a sperg and will stay a virgin

Hi frens, not sure if this is the appropriate place to ask but I've been having trouble finding decent embroidery software. I've played around with Ink/Stitch a bit but I think I would have an easier time with an actual digitizing program. Would anyone be able to point me in the right (free) direction?

Pic isn't mine obvs but is the sort of work I'd like to produce.

>> No.10493409

There are no good free (legal) programs. Its too niche of a need and old ladies making shit for their grandkids and moms on Etsy are 90% of the end user and they're willing to pay for software. You'd be better doing the art and paying somebody to digitize for you.

>> No.10493437

Thanks for the response. I know the easy route is definitely fishing on Fiverr for digitizing services.

To be clear, I'm familiar with the pricing on PE Design, Embrilliance, Embird, Hatch, etc, and I sort of expected anyone to understand that to mean one of those softwares cracked, not an actually free software, of which there is basically just Ink/Stitch.
