Was a huge fat weeb in my teens and tweens (but was never allowed actually act on my filthy thoughts god bless my mom)
Now I‘m an independent womyn I decided to actually express my weebness anyways despite her patrolling and get into j-fashion lolita cosplay again since I dress really bland and ugly. But the thing is, back then when I was looking through the pages of several of my most fave j-magazines I saw online when this livejournal hosted them (don‘t know if they still do) the fashion looks probably really outdated now so I need to get up to date.
Anyways tl;dr what is the most popular fashion subculture now in Japan? It used to be gyaru.

Don't think of it this way, you'll give up long before you can get a job. Use it as a stress release from your current situation, learn to love it as a hobby. Make things you're proud of and can show other people. Eventually you'll find that you're employable. If you really need to, in the meantime flip burgers or something similar to make ends meet, even if that means moving menial jobs somewhat frequently.

Saw an anon posting here talking about how he wants to cosplay as Joker from Persona 5. Just found out about this character through his post and I'm just loving his hair.

How do you get your hair to be messy but make it look messy on purpose like his. What I'm currently doing is just shampoo rinse repeat wait for it to dry and it looks good... until I go to sleep. Then in the morning it's either ugly messy or too tidy when combed.

I'd love the dude that posted the original thread to reply because I haven't saved the his picture but he's hair seems similar.

Oh, I have no idea why you were directed here, because this is a cosplay/lolita board. Actual everyday hairstyles using your own hair aren't talked about here except sometimes in lolita threads (but this isn't a very.... lolita hairstyle). I'd make a thread in /fa/ asking about it, however, a hairstyle like this is stylized and it's generally pretty hard to get an anime character's hairstyle using your own hair, hence why I recommended a wig (it would be thicker, more straight, hold form better etc..) so you may get scoffed at if you make asked there. Best bet is to look around for an image of someone who had their natural hair in a similar cut/style, THEN go and make a thread or reply to a hair help thread in /fa/ and see what people say (but if you can't find one then just accept getting laughed at and hope someone actually tries to help you)

/out/ here. I'd like to make a wool loden cloak, such as the one in this image, but I'm finding it difficult to pin down a good source for wool fabric sold in bulk. I can order anything online and budget for the material won't break the bank.

So far I've looked at Pendleton's site, Harbor Freight (their $10 wool blankets are as bad as you'd expect, like literal shoddy material), moodfabrics, and a few others. I'm thinking that a German website would have it, but I can't into German very well to find one. I can find the manufacturer of wool loden cloaks in German, the last time I looked (can't remember the name now,) but i want to tailor on myself.

This isn't the first time I've been inspired to do this and still I can't seem to find what I need. Maybe I'm searching for the wrong name when it is in bolt form?

Can anyone help?

>> No.10056866

Firstly, post in the larp thread newfag.
Secondly, if you haven't been to a larp you have no business writing one. Even most people who have been to a larp will suck at writing them. Before you try to write this game, do some research into other magical school games. Read as many systems and rulesets as you can and attend at least one. Magischola is a well-regarded magical school larp, for example. I think there's one in the US as well? At least go to some local larp events even if they're not the sort of thing you want to run; maybe even volunteer on a ref team or two to get some experience.
Third, some general advice: Writing a game isn't the only part of running a larp. You also have to deal with booking a site, making sure all safety precautions appropriate, providing kit for monsters and NPCs, liaising with players, feeding however many people for however long you run the game... There are so many logistics in running a larp, it's a lot of very hard work. Make sure you assemble a competent (and experienced if possible) ref team and DELEGATE. Do not try to do everything yourself. Be prepared to hear a lot of criticism and make sure you take it to improve your game - there's nothing worse than a game runner or head ref with a "vision" they refuse to adapt. Plots do not often survive contact with players, you should have a plot but be ready to adapt it and change it accordingly based on what your players do and where you want them to end up.
Fourth, consider running a tabletop rpg instead. You will be able to do that yourself without much difficulty, there are many tabletop systems already written that can cater to this kind of game, and you can play with a small group of friends in a more concentrated way where you won't need to worry about logistical things. You can even dress up to play if costuming is important to you.

>> No.10056871

To answer your actual questions:
>How can I gather interest without gathering negative attention?
Go to other larps first. Meet people, make friends. Work on a few referee teams helping other people realise their larps. Work hard and improve on your mistakes. Get a name for yourself as someone who loves larp and is committed to excellence and fun. Then people will want to play your games! But there will always be at least one negative person who wants to rain on your parade, so make sure you grow a thick skin too. (Being on a good ref team will help you develop that.)
>Similarly, how can I filter out anyone with bad intentions?
That is difficult. Make sure you have a policy about what behaviours and attitudes you will allow in your game, and make sure that policy is stated in an obvious place on your website or very early on in your ruleset. Contrary to what some people believe, you actually can write a very good and interesting game that has strong elements of in-world prejudice or allows genuine physical contact (violent or less commonly sexual) between consenting players; the key is to be clear about what your game will contain. For example, if playing a muggle born will get a character bullied and potentially smacked around by purebloods, make sure that's listed as a feature of the game. If you start a Facebook group or event page for your event, you might be able to read out bad eggs based on who makes uncomfortable or policy breaking comments on it . Also if you are recruiting players from within the general larp community, at least in my country people are very outspoken about problem players so if one tries to join your game, someone may let you know. Unfortunately this also comes easier wirh experience.

>> No.10056875

Thanks heaps. I admit, first time I have been on this board. Didn't even know about it until an hour ago.

So I may try just going to an existing group. I don't know much about doing that either, but I guess I'll figure it out. I have some friends, but it might be hard to convince them to play tabletope with me at some point.

Thanks again.

>> No.10056878

Also here's a list of magical school larps to read up on:
>Bothwell School
>Czocha College of Wizardry
>College of Wizardry Nibelungen
OR you could get a copy of something like Fate Core or Fate Accelerated and run a tabletop game.

>> No.10056882

If you check out the websites for the games I mentioned here >>10056878, they should explain how to join and get started, and if you're completely new to larp you can usually join a Facebook group for the game or email the game runners to ask for help. People are usually nice and willing to help a new player. Best of luck!
And there's always Internet rp if your friends don't want to play with you.

get rid of the dress, it isnt doing you any favors, go on lacemarket and find something for cheap that fits you. do not expect to spend 30$ on a dress and it look good. payment plans exist
get a petti thats worth shit
other white blouse is fine but not with this coord, coord that blouse with something with more white in it
get real lolita shoes and work on color distribtiuon, ie if ur dress is pink, have pink shoes and pink headbow, and go for blouse and tights that have a nice accent color (in this case sax blue or lavender maybe
also this is just my opinion but i feel like her face would look a little better if she went one shade down on her foundation colour.

They're definitely aware that some do not, but that's certainly does get lost in the amount of customers who expect, well, therapy service when they get their hair done. I'd actually get yelled at by my managers for not being talkative enough because it's 'losing potential clientele." I even had one manager, regarding men, tell me to wear lower cut tops to 'show off the girls if you're bad at flirting'. I've worked at upscale salons though so the pressure is worse the more 'service-oriented' the salon happens to be. It's really dumb. I was nice. I just was more focused on making sure someone's hair looked good versus asking them every detail about their life, and that was 'bad'. It made me sad.

>> No.10058010

Yeah, they're still seeking to draw in those repeat clientele. The tipping thing kind of sucks because, in my state, managers can reduce tips from paychecks down to 2.15 an hour in the hairdressing industry. So, the management pressures us to make tips because it saves them money. >>10057564
Oh, it's not rude. You can still adjust your head and all that. Generally, if you do bring in a book, we just assume you're not much of a talker, and it's okay not to talk to you.

>> No.10058012

Clothing stores are different then hairdressers, and I've worked in that industry too. It's true they're required to give you greeting, and can get fired if the management doesn't hear that greeting. However, hovering like that in a retail outlet means one thing: they think you're a thief, especially if you're browsing a higher price store. Trust me, they don't do that to the 40 year old women unless asked. Like you said though, they just lost a 300 dollar sale trying to deter what they thought might be a shoplifter.
