Fabric frustration edition

Where's the best place to find good border patterns, gulls? I can't find anything and I'm dying of frustration. Everything i look for looks like pic related. I hate it.

I was worried about that, thanks for warning me. I'm currently looking at this one:
which does the side seams last, but I'm not sure how to go about cleanly inserting an invisible zipper in that situation. Maybe I should just accept that I'm in for a lot of fiddling.

So before anyone says it, I wouldn't be asking here if I hadn't already googled it, and I know this isn't technically what this board is for but I figure if anyone's going to know it's you guys

I recently bought this jacket that I really like but it's way too bright I figured while buying it that I could just dunk in a bucket of bleach for a little while and it would be fine. Unfortunately however I found out afterwards that it was 100% acrylic.

Now I'm not looking to die this or anything like that I just want it to be not as vibrant, and everything I read online basically says there's nothing to do to acrylic that does that but I find that highly suspect.

Does anyone here know anything that I could throw this thing in Bleach, ammonia, I don't know, that would fade its colors?

Because right now my only real option is leaving it out in the sun for a couple weeks.

Pic unrelated.

Has anyone ever done goofed bad enough as to having to remove paint from worbla?
In my first timer hubris, I went straight to a spray primer without a sealer layer and am seeing the fruits of my cardinal sin.

Any best methods between hand sanding, orbital sanding, or even sand blasting?

Note that all the silver pieces are not yet glued on and still removable, and it is specifically the silver I want to redo.

I would redo the entire construction of the silver pieces then if you hate it that much. Easier than trying to get all the paint off

Really makes me wonder about some of the shit you see in worbla threads.

You're probably going to have to redo it or spend a lot of time hand sanding.

Let's talk about Geek Craft Expo -

Have you attended/vended at a geek craft expo? What was your experience like?
Any friends attend/vend the event?

The reason we are asking is that recently the people who run this show decided to up the prices for their vendors to over $400 for an artist table, which is ridiculous in our humble opinion. Most large comic-cons don't even charge that, so what makes these people think that they can?

Also, who is Geek Craft Expo? They are run by 3 people, but we can't find any additional business information, registration, permits, or anything else regarding this show. It's a mystery!

Already, we've heard both positive and negative feedback regarding this show, so we wanted to reach out to you fine folks to see if anyone had any more information. We are writing an expose on the event and want honest opinions.

Thank you for your time and have a wonderful and lucrative convention season!

How is the fit of IW’s simpler unshirred OPs? I love how they look and normally have no problem fitting IW’s JSKs and skirts in M, but my shoulders are 38cm wide and most OPs are listed as 34-35cm, sometimes smaller. My ribcage is actually very narrow but my shoulder joints are wide-set, like a disproportionate stick figure. Would I have trouble moving my arms comfortably? Anyone else have this issue?

I'm trying to make a Spider-Man costume(pic related). However, I don't know the first thing about sewing or making a mask. What am I supposed to measure on my head to get a nice, tight fit? What fabric should I use to make the mask? What type of markers are best for drawing on clothes? Where can I learn to sew? Also, how would I go about attaching the lenses to the actual mask?
Anything helps. Thank you.

I feel like this is probably bait but I'll bite anyway.

If you want to look like the girl in this pic, you need to start with really healthy, clear skin. It's going to be really obvious if you're using a ton of product to cover up bad skin, and that will age you. Use light, natural-toned makeup sparingly, and nothing that will add a ton of shimmer. Forego contouring in favor of a girlish pink blush, and learn how to do natural brows and tightline your eyes with eyeliner so it doesn't even look like you're wearing it. Finish it off with a brown mascara. And a lot of it's just going to be genetics - if you have naturally hooded eyes or prominent features, you're not going to be able to achieve the chubby round-cheeked youthful look, no matter what you do with your makeup. (also keep in mind that photos like this are almost definitely always touched up)

Things I have noticed over the years that make my makeup look more youthful

-brown mascara and brown eyeliner. actually brown, not brown-black like most western brands. i currently use clio kill brown
-if you have a prominent cupids bow, cover it up. i find that a more rounded lip shape looks more youthful and less mature
-go light on the eyshadow. no more than two shades, a medium to light brown, and a beige, white, or soft pink shimmer shade.
-line your bottom waterline with nude eyeliner to make your eyes seem bigger
-straighter, lighter brows look more innocent than heavy, dark, arched brows

All of them were me. May make another post to make clarifications and additional comments, but can at least say that if you want to keep a table, you can forget Yugicon, that's not what they do.
Both Torucon and Banzaicon are sold out on Artstands this year, so you'll have to wait if you want to go to them. And you should be ready, because the artstand tickets sell really fast.

Yeah, looks like the tickets open at about half a year in advance. Thanks for the tips anon, I might try to check out Norway's con scene again.

>> No.9886351

Why did you leave in the first place? The problems you left over may still be present.

>> No.9886361

I just lost interest as I grew out of my teens, and I remember the organization at Desucon being somewhat messy. But considering it has moved to a bigger place it's certainly grown at least, and I did always enjoy the cosplay. Even 5-6 years ago there were some high-effort, good quality ones. I did AA even earlier than that, when stands weren't very good, but it was fun even then, and it'd be nice to see what the quality is like now.

>> No.9886370

Desucon changed leadership. They had one year that everyone got angry and complained a lot because it was poorly done, but after that they've improved a bit.

May be worth mentioning that they've announced that this will be the last year that Desucon is held, so if you want to experience Desucon again this is your last chance. I don't know what will happen in the future after this, there's no con that can easily take over so quickly.

One important thing I didn't mention in my >>9886211 long posts is places to sit down.
The clear winner in this among the three big ones is Torucon. They've many chairs and sofas spread around in smaller groups, very comfy.
Desucon has pretty much no chairs, so most people will sit on the floor along the walls. At panels you can sit obviously though, and if you go to the expensive food salesplace you can sit there too, or outside.
Banzaicon has places to sit, but mostly in the cafe, which is also one of the major places people meet and sit down. Other than that, it's a bit limited outside panels, and it is just regular chairs so not as nice as Torucon, but it may be a bit easier to find a free seat than at Torucon.

To be frank with ya buddy, you're going to get the worst possible answers on this board. Talk to women in your life. Ask them how they would want to be approached.

Talk to a girl with the goal in mind that making friends with a person who has the same interests as you is the best possible reward. The rest, if desired, will follow. Going shirtless and trying to look for the secret formula to gettin pussy reeks of a guy trying too hard.
