so halloweens is comin up and I wanna dress as this little fellow but I have 0 cosplaying experience
also I wanted to exaggerate the halloweenness by putting a pumpkin on my head and carving holes and using some kind of see through black fabric for the eyes and using another pumpkin to carve horns out of
is that a terrible idea?
also should I just use some like slim fitted black clothing to go under the blue cloak or do y'all think there's a better thing out there
I'm still stuck on what to do for the weapon, I'm sure mashed paper could do it but I'm open to suggestions
I am gonna be reading the tutorial posted here as well, I'm just curious what y'all think about actually sticking a pumpkin on my head as part of it

It's possible to pull Bayo off even with average leg length! I've even seen cosplayers with short legs be able to pull her off by wearing really high heels to give the illusion of legs for days.

I'd really like to cosplay Shep since I love Interstella 5555 so much, but his suit is too complex for me and I don't think I555 is really all that recognizable outside of the Daft Punk fandom.

I've wanted to do Stella but haven't because body paint is hell and I wouldn't be comfy walking around a con in her crotch cutout dress. I've thought of doing her award show outfit (or maybe compromising and doing the white version from the Shep dream scene) but I don't think I'd be recognized and it does kind of suck when people have no idea what you're doing.

Old thread >>9982672
I'm making a sword blade that's about 24 inches long and 3/8 inches thick out of acrylic since it needs to be clear and light up. I'm probably going to stabilize it in the hilt by fusing it to a 1" wide polycarbonate tube but I'm still worried about the weight and it tearing through an eva foam hilt that I'm planning on making. Any advice?

>> No.9996366

Stabilize the blade by having the middle layer of the hilt be made out of fiberboard or basswood, then layer your foam on top of that.

I've done it. It ended up working for the head size but had some predictable things to look out for:

This is the case with a lot of girls in my comm who whine about being "poor". They're so dramatic about the "kidneys" they had to spare to get their measly pieces of brand that they barely ever wear, while they constantly drop money on weeb shit. I can't take them seriously if I cared to try.

I know so many people who blow all of their money on things like eating out or expensive makeup and then have the nerve to turn around and complain about how costly cosplay/lolita is and how they never have money for it.

There's a girl I know whose mom gives her money for cosplay in addition to paying for her rent, food, and college tuition, but she blows all of that money on dumb shit and cries about how she works ~so hard~ but can't afford cosplay anyways.

Why is the cosplay community so toxic and negative?

>> No.9995419

Actually, outside of /cgl/, I've found most people to be helpful and supportive. Of course, there will always be some rotten apples, but on the whole, I haven't experienced the "toxic" community you're talking about. Especially at cons themselves, once you take that layer of anonymity away, a lot of people lose the balls to say anything bad.

Looking at the state of the cosplay community, I can actually appreciate how guarded the lolita community is and how strict the rules are as to what is and isn't in the fashion. I honestly think the cosplay scene could have benefited from something like that, so costhots couldn't call their attention thirst "cosplay"

What's worse it has gotten worse with time.
First we had titty windows by people like Jessica Nigri and Yaya Han which people defended to death as to saying it is okay so it became accepted.

Then we got Cosplay Paterons where people would simply just wear underwear and be nearly naked and call it "cosplay". People also defended that to death and said "lewd" cosplayers are okay.

I wouldn't be surprised if the next step is "professional" cosplayers start going into straight up porn and argue to death that it is okay and still "cosplay".

>> No.9995872

Cosplay, costume play, it's not that deep. Who gives a fuck about your purist standards? The market has voted with their wallets, patreon costhots are here to stay. I cosplay often and I'd rather put good energy into my workmanship than waste time gnashing my teeth over half dressed hussies who can't sew a thing.

Cons have changed, though skimpy cosplay and people looking for excuses to be half naked is not new. Cons have become bigger, marketable events instead of little hobby groups having a chat and a viewing of their fave animes. As we age, we become more critical; it's no longer a nice gathering place to be silly with your friends, it's a place to buy merch and hope for a half decent panel. I do miss the old days, but I am aware that I was naive and full of excitement.

hello everyone. i have some questions about the aforementioned fair in geneve because i intend to visit it and cosplay there.

my first question is about the french language barrier. i can kinda understand what the person in front of me is saying but replying is pretty hard (learned it in school - didnt use it anymore).

what was your experience like in retrospect?

what about the payment (is it possible to pay with euros/us-dollars)?

>> No.9995383

It's not worth it imho unless you really have nothing else to go to. In my experience the gawking normie ratio is high and the pricing of everything huge (and no lmao no one's gonna accept USD why would they? You might be able to get away with Euros for some things, but not guaranteed and not neccesarily at an exchange rate you'll like.) Cosplayers tend to be sold as an attraction but there's not actually many/much for them.
