For cosplays from franchises that don't have enough decent cosplays to warrant their own thread. Video games, anime/manga, TV shows, music, all is welcome, just no huge/very popular franchises that would have enough material to have their own thread (ex: pokemon or final fantasy)

A Cosplayer from San Antonio, TX has been plagiarizing the work of talented companies and seamstress for years. Telling others she’s working on a particular costume, but posts no progress pictures. Comes out with a beautiful cosplay and claims she made every bit of it. Absolutely repulsive. Girl is very toxic and outspoken on social media and will attack anyone who she sees as a threat. Shit ton of white night thirsty fuck boys ready to defend her even with proof of her disgusting actions. It’s okay to buy your costumes. Every cosplayer does it at some point if not all the time now a days. What is not okay, is claiming these costumes to be made by you when in fact they are from mass produced Chinese companies or individual seamstresses who work hard for their client. Her name is “cyd Marie” or goes by “ahri Marie” on facebook and @ahrilicious on instagram. Disgusting theif. Spread the word around about her plagiarizing actions so she can learn that this is not ok.

Hey there, I'm new to this board relatively and new to overall Cosplay/anime wear thing. I have a question regarding anime themed glasses frames and putting prescription lenses in them.

I plan to buy some Madoka Magica themed frames because it's my favorite show, and yes they're expensive but my ones currently are absolutely trashed and I'm interested. I'll post a picture of the frames in question and link them as well, but my question is basically where would I go to put prescription lenses in them here in the USA? The japanese prescription site and how to do it all is a bit over my head as I dont speak the language.

link: https://eyemirror.jp/madoka-magica/

tl;dr: Prescription lenses in Anime themed frames? How and where should I get them done at?

>> No.9722364

Buy them and take them to any optometrist you’d normally go to. I don’t buy fandom frames, but sometimes I buy cute frames from LenseCrafters and take them to my loca doctor that’s in my insurance network because he has a terrible selection. It’s never been an issue before.

>> No.9722386

Most places will do it, the issue isn’t where but the cost. Good luck!

>> No.9722601

The problem with these anime themed glasses frames.... if they're plastic, they're easily breakable. $151 down the drain.

If you can get wire frames, do that. I spent so much of my younger school days with perpetually broken plastic framed glasses I swore them off when I got my first metal / wire frames. And they're not broken once.

>> No.9722966

That sucks anon, but not all plastic frames are created equal. Some are flexible/shock absorbing and just personally I've never snapped a pair.

Seconding going to your usual optometrist who gets your prescription, or as other anons have suggested whichever optometrist is the least costly. If you could understand the website then getting your prescription first and then filling it in would be an option but oh well.

Interestingly, even though those frames aren't the cheapest, they're still much cheaper than any frames in my country because of the monopoly a certain company has over glasses. I like getting glasses from Asia because they're cheaper and always have nose pads for my tiny flat nose.

Hello /cgl/!

I'm a romance novelist, but I won't tell my real name. I've been brainstorming for a new romance novel. The plot is going to about two lolitas in their late-20s or early-30s who fall in love with each other and get married at the end. I don't wear lolita fashion, but I know what it is. I've read Takemoto's Kamikaze Girls and I've discovered the lolita community can get angry quickly if someone messes or does not understand the guidelines of their fashion. I don't want lolita to be described as a fetish, but as a fashion in the romance novel. What's the appropriate direction I need to take regarding lolita fashion when writing the romance novel?

>> No.9721350

Lolita fashion will not be used as the main plot device, but the fashion is why they will meet in the first place.

Don't worry. They'll be playing video games, dealing with sexual harassment in their professional lives, and attend a performance of an all-women theatre troupe.

>> No.9721462


egl still has some good stuff: http://egl.livejournal.com/
On the left, check the Memories, it’s what someone at some point thought was really important to bookmark, and if you drill down to specific articles you’ll find little details like what should be handwashed/drycleaned, or discussion of harassment in lolita, repeat debates on “why lolita”, that you can add to your novel.

I think this thread is also tangentially related to your interest: >>9707069
You want to take note of the tone of the girls recommending articles, and see what they DON'T like being depicted in media. Or actually, add one of the silly ita characters in as comic relief so the main character can get mad at her or something.

The current lolita lifestyler thread isn’t very on-topic, if you can find the cgl archives and look up the older lifestyler threads you might get a better idea of how some lolitas’ interest spill over into other areas of their life, like how someone who likes pastel cutesy shit also makes their bedroom pastel and cutesy, or someone who is into classic lolita likes movies with historical-inspired costumes. People aren’t one-dimensional, but you may have difficulties if you end up having to reconcile a character who is a ruthless corporate climber who also displays vidya power levels similar to a hiki freeter, and then somehow also finds time to dress up like a sugar plum fairy dusty forest librarian strega witch magical girl.

>lolita guidebook on tumblr

cgl put most of these together in google docs and then someone threw it up on tumblr. If you limit yourself to just reading the guidebook and don’t read anything that isn’t part of the guidebook you’ll be getting most of cgl’s groupthink and not the blog owner’s.

>all-women theatre

This is based on the Takarazuka Theatre isn’t it. Don’t answer, I’m just going to pretend it is, thanks.

p/s - let us know when your novel is out, I’d be interested to read it.

As for the meet, N was nice, not much of a gabber with people she's unfamiliar with. My issue with the event boils down to logistics, nothing to do but sit and eat your biscuits while you wait for more cold tea. Everything was quite awkward, but it wasn't like it wasn't worth the ticket price, you know?
