You have that backwards, you should be getting the silicone filled kind as the cotton filled ones are absolute shit and shouldn't even be considered purchasing for how stiff and unrealistic they are.
Also it'd be far more useful to just post pictures of it to try and entice people from the get go.

Yeah I'd rather guarantee I get the dress and be forced to really think about if I like it and want it or not or if it's just hype. If I'm still excited for a dress knowing there will be no instant gratification and I'll have to wait 6+ months for it (like Honey Cake) then I feel better about my purchase. And with MTOs they last a little while rather than selling out immediately so you have time to think. They also come out in Japan a week or two ahead so you know and can plan for international release if you need to save up or something.

Then she needs to stop trying edgy makeup. Or wear not sweet to events and indulge her edginess there. She could also do maybe every 4th video in a different substyle or something, to play around with other stuff, if she wants them sweet sweet lolita views.
The sad thing is, she CAN actually do decent makeup that suits her. She just chooses not to!

Yeah her gaining some weight helped her face even out and look less hollow and makeup like this makes her look much cuter in lolita. She looks okay and more toned down a lot of the time when she wears casual jfashion as well...but to be fair to her the point of a lot of Japanese alt fashion is to just wear what you like because you like it and not to please society or men, etc. so if she actually likes the styles she's doing and isn't just into being an edgelord just to seem interesting to viewers/attract more of an audience than I'd say it's not a huge problem.

Let's discuss Cosplay Competitions. Maybe you're planning to enter one!

I've competed in about 6 now. Never won, but still had fun.

>earning more income, prize money and sponsorships from supply stores

This is not always accurate, as someone who runs elbows with cosplayers who compete at these high level contests. Most of the contest prizes barely cover the cost of your cosplay, and big sponsorships are rare - most "sponsorships" involve a company just sending you a one time package or a few dozen bucks in supplies.

A much bigger leg up is cosplayers who cosplay full time and can dedicate all of their time and income to crafting, or professionals with studios who make items for movies but enter contests for fun.

>> No.10301892

If we're talking competitions in general, I know the prizes aren't huge, but with the really high tier competitions they're a bit bigger than that, you can see from the picture higher in the thread that the Crown Championship of Cosplay has prizes between $1,000 and $5,000 which is quite a lot of money. Costumes can definitely cost in that range but that's part of my point, most people can't afford to put $1,000 in one costume. For sponsorships I meant for example (and not to detract from her because her win was well deserved) Cowbutt Crunchies is sponsored by Arda Wigs and they send her the wigs she needs for free. I know it's a pretty rare situation but again, this is about the few highest ranking competitions and the few people who can afford and have the tools and extensive skills to make something that has a chance of winning them.

>> No.10301907

At the same time though, if you're saying that costume costs $1000, receiving a free $40 wig isn't going to make a very big dent in that, right? Cost is absolutely a hurtle to big time competitions, but unless the entire cosplay is getting sponsored or all the materials are paid for on the regular, sponsorships probably aren't offsetting those cosplayer's costs by very much. Some cons also have a rule prohibiting cosplays that are completely sponsored/commissioned, to prevent someone from entered a cosplay they were paid to make.

Thank the fuck. Their patterns sucked so bad, the one biggest grace to them is they self-identify anyone interested in their patterns as being downright stupid enough that the crappy stock photos (or lack thereof) didn't tip them off that the pattern can't possibly be good when everything else about it sucks so hard.

Its good when youre first starting out because it allows you to buy enough blouses/socks/shoes/accessories to coord with and its IN STOCK. I've personally don't have much taobao, but if my whole wardrobe burned down I'd drop like $500 on those kinds of items so id be able to be able to wear it quickly. Then I would shop on the secondhand market for main pieces and eventual brand replacements for the taobao items i got. Occasionally there are a couple items that are nice enough to keep long term, but i just see it as a waste of space now that i have brand items that serve the same purpose in a coord.

For me I like Dear Celine blouses, especially for when it's hot out and I don't want to worry about sweating in a brand blouse. I also tend to only buy stuff that has a lot of review photos or from a taobao brand that I really trust, like Dear Celine that I mentioned before.

There's also some main pieces that I really like, such as Whale & Corsair that I just bought. I'm really picky with the main pieces that I pick up from taobao, though. Otherwise it's mainly for accessories like bows and berets, jewelry, stuff like that. Also shoes! I'm an LL in brand sizing, and I never like the styles that are still in stock on brand sites (and used shoes are kind of icky) so I just buy taobao shoes so I don't have to worry about them getting scuffed, and I can make sure they're the perfect size.

She likes polyester way too much, and I live in the tropics, land of eternal summer. In fact, most of my dislike for polyester comes from taobao brands overusing it way, way more, way worse and in lower quality than AP ever did.
