Did the unspeakable era, which many fashion historians try to ignore, birth the Lolita look? Are the 1830s more of a direct influence on the fashion then Victorian fashion? Should we consider peering into this time period for new ideas, or do we shun this dark time and never acknowledge it again? Also... (if you would like) general melding historical details into Lolita/ digging through history to find new things to mix back into the established look.

I don't know where everyone got this notion that Lolita is rooted in Rococo. Just because Novala Takemoto said it doesn't mean it's holy writ. If you look at any early snaps of the fashion there absolutely no correlation between lolita and rococo.
The influence came much later in classic brands, and only exploded in about 2011 when OTT classic emerged.

If you look at early street snaps of the fashion there’s hardly any sweet, that doesn’t mean Sweet didn’t exist in the early days either. Are you garbage-chan? You think Novala pulled that out of this ass?

Bit of a novice cosplayer here, I've already got a wig I really like and am working on touching up a cute dolphin plush to bring along. I'm doing his Hiatus Boat Arc attire.

Basically I'm looking for good red eye contacts, (prop) gun, suit (I have a black one that's dead on but would rather match the covers), and ideas on how to make the chain - or if it's better to just look into premade cosplay-chains for the character.

none of you can even see the bright side here. these rare dresses are being preserved in these different closets, mostly in the west, being taken care of by folks with a collector's mindset.
one day, they will sell these pieces, and that's a fact. I can look forward to hopefully buying some of my favorite mains from relatively nearby sources, and they'll be in good condition.

Everything in my plus-size-friendly wardrobe fits me because I like to wear the fashion as well as collect but I had to call you saltines out for hating on people who have a different yet completely harmless way of interacting with the fashion. fucking chill.

I used to go when Nekocon (and Kuopio’s non-profit Animecon) was still a thing. There are a lot of young con-goers, average age is probably 16-17. There is a fair amount of people usually, and it’s mostly kids and teenagers with daddy’s money. So expect same kind of crowd as in recent Animecons. You’ll probably sell fine if you have merch/art from series that are popular with kids like BNHA.

what are finnish convention goers willing to pay for acrylic charms?? i price my stuff according to US prciing standards in my online shop because majority of my customers are in the US, but i have no idea if finns will pay that much for charms

>> No.10112307

It depends on the person? I don't think there's an established average for AA pricing, at least not as clearly as in the US, especially for products like charms and stuff because it's such a new thing over here. From what I've seen, regular charms tend to be priced somewhere between 5e-10e, while charms that are big, double-sided, or have something extra are somewhere around 10e-15e. I personally don't remember seeing anyone asking over 15e for a charm so far (but I don't pay close attention to tables that I'm not interested in so there's confirmation bias here).
However it really depends on what type of charms you're doing, and if your art is good/interesting enough to be popular. I don't think anyone will have a problem paying for art they really like. Usually people that don't buy something because "it's too expensive" would say the same even if you dropped your price a few euros.

Out of curiosity, how do you currently price your charms?

>> No.10112311

I sell mine at 10 euros a piece on my online store, but I fear ppl wont buy the charms at that price especially since it's a newish thing here and people aren't as used to the idea of collecting charms and that paying ~10 dollars for an acrylic keychain is the norm. I am decently confident in my art and my charms are 5 to 6.5cm and double-sided but I still dunno man

>> No.10112325

If your art is good and the series/theme is relatively popular then I don't think you'll have trouble selling them for 10e. It's not that expensive, so I think your best bet would be just to give it a shot at a con and see if they sell or not: it's really hard to tell beforehand. Even cheap charms won't sell if people just don't like them, so you'll probably just have to test the waters and see how it goes.

'Sup, /cgl/. I'm going to be doing foreign study in Japan from March 18th until about August 1st. I'm interested in going to as many cosplay conventions as I can within that time period, since I've always wanted to interact with the Japanese cosplay community a lot more from the few encounters I've had at American cons. I think I know most of the basic idiosyncrasies, like
>No wearing the cosplay to the convention
>Changing rooms required
>There may be a cosplaying fee
et cetera, but I guess I'm wondering if there's other less-known things I should be aware of and try to plan for/accommodate.
Also, suggestions for conventions would be great as well. I know AnimeJapan is happening for 4 days in late March, so if anyone's been there I'd really like some firsthand advice on how to get the most out of it. Other than that, most of the events I seem to be finding are right at the end of July and beginning of August (Summer WonFes, Jul. 27th; World Cosplay Summit, Jul. 28th-Aug. 5th, all the way down in Nagoya; Summer Comiket, Aug. 10-12). Does anyone know of any other conventions in between AnimeJapan and that big cluster at the end of the summer, or in lieu of that any other good places to go cosplay for fun and meet people?
And sorry for writing a book about this. Feel free to just talk about Japanese conventions in general too.

Do you know any japanese at all, or know someone who does? I'm sure these events have some info on their homepages on what their rules regarding cosplay are, and you can probably find some info online just by googling.

If you can speak conversationally, maybe contact one of the Tokyo-based photo studios and ask the staff if they know anything? At the photo studio I went to in Gifu there was a guest book/signboard where people would note public meetups and stuff.

>> No.10110979

There are plenty of cosplay events each month (at least in Tokyo). I forgot the name of the site which list a bunch of them, but I'm sure some other anon can remember and link it.

Apart from actual cosplay events, you are usually allowed to cosplay in most doujinshi-events. There are plenty of those as well, I'd say several each month. Obviously you're gonna have to do a bit of thinking on which events you're actually going to attend. Most events usually have entrance fee of 1500-3000 a day, and cosplaying might cost extra. I'd say you're better off going to events that have doujinshi from series you're interested in, so you can buy something and cosplay at the same time. The chances of meeting like-minded people is also higher.

Circle.ms is a good site for finding events: https://portal.circle.ms/
It's meant for doujin artists and circles, but I've used it several times to find interesting events. If you see something you like you can just look up the event's own website and see if they allow cosplay. If you're into big series like Azur Lane, KanColle, Touhou etc, you can probably easily find event listed here.

Akaboo holds several larger-scale doujinshi-events a year, you can check their schedule, entry-prices and cosplay-specifications here: https://www.akaboo.jp/
They hold mostly female-oriented events (aka. lots of BL)

Studio YOU has smaller doujin-events, listed here: http://www.youyou.co.jp/index.html
Be aware tho, some of their events are really small, with around 200 circles or so (in contrast to Comiket, which has 40k circles), so if you're going alone with no friends or knowledge of Japanese you might feel lonely.

Apart from all of these, Wonder Festival Summer 2019 will be held in Chiba on 28th of July. It's a figure-event but you're allowed to cosplay there and plenty of people do. If you're in Tokyo the travel time to Chiba is very reasonable, and I'd recommend it since it's a very nice event to visit

>> No.10110991

Nevermind, literally ten minutes later I found some of the websites listing actual cosplay events. There are so many event-organizers and events that it's practically impossible to visit every single one, these are just a fraction of them.

I've been to AnimeJapan about in 2017 for a day. You have to pay to get into the cosplay area (and not supposed to take pictures of them outside of the designated area). Unfortunately I didn't check the cosplay-only area, but I still got to see them in passing (and took a few pics). This con seemed more industry-based, but it's still neat because of the freebies, and the booth cosplayers handing out flyers/promotional material. I can't compare to other Japanese cons since this is the only one I personally attended.

Ok a few months ago I made a bet where I made this cosplay (I think it went well) Then went to a convention in my city, and everyone asked me my real name and page if I had, the truth is the second cosplay I do in my life and I only do it for pleasure. The help I want is, what other characters can I do in cosplay? It does not matter if the character is hot, the ideas went away.

Is 50mm good enough?
Actually, what lenses do people use for con photography anyway? I saw people running around with some zoom ones but I couldn't catch the focal lengths on those.
