Post pics of the beautiful and mysterious Imai Kira herself,
talk about art and collaboration pieces.

Topic starters: What is your favorite design? What was the first Imai Kira design you fell in love with? Do you like her older or newer designs better? Have you met her, and if so, deets?

It’s not specifically cultural but privacy concerns surrounding social media are much more prevalent in Japan than in many other countries. Younger people like your students are becoming more comfortable with it, but it’s not unusual for Japanese people in their 20s and above to not want to post their face online. It’s largely the reason why Twitter is much more popular than Facebook with Japanese users

>> No.10157015

I used to translate a bunch of these articles from GLB, but it had no appreciation or whatsoever, so I stopped. Translations were never popular in my blog / tumblr era, so I felt like it was not needed.

If no one is commenting or sharing on these posts I just feel it's not wanted.

>> No.10157052

Having a native English speaker proofread your translations will help you immensely.
I can’t tell you how many incredible comics I’ve read that failed to reach English readers and inevitably stopped updating as a result, simply because the translation was complete nonsense.

>> No.10157078

Where did you post them? I haven't seen any GLB translations since lj days.

>> No.10157083

I also did a GLB article translation and posted it here and someone reposted it to Tumblr (with my permission) but outside of the oldschool crowd it didn't really get any readership. I got some nice responses on here, and I enjoyed doing it, but it's a ton of work on articles with a decade out of date information.

Plus there's way less actual content in GLBs than people think. Maybe one article per volume is worth translating in full.

Eh.... I made one on /fa/ but unlikely it'll get any response.

>wash wigs

Whats the best bang-for-your-buck shampoo? Best quality for the price. I want something that makes hair (these wigs, or hell my own hair) the best it can be for a reasonable price. I dont mind paying a more for haircare on my own head, but I'm not trying to buy $50 bottles for my wigs.

There must be a brand or something that has a rep for high quality and a good price. Whats the product or brand right at that cross section of good stuff and not crazy expensive?

>> No.10154301

Wigs and hair are two different kinds of structure. A wig is synthetic and it's basically like washing plastic. You don't need anything fancier than dish soap or baby shampoo. Then when it's dry, comb it out with a detangler spray that has silicone in it, like Mane n Tail.

For your real hair that depends so much on the kind of hair you have, this isn't really the place to get answers for it.

Also, use the help thread in the future.

Hey /cos/, I am doing a survey on an increase in willingness to socialise and wearing a full body outfit which covers the face.

Say you aren't exactly the person to start a conversation with somebody you don't know. But if you were to get an outfit that covers your head/ face, would you be more willing to socialise? If you already own a cosplay outfit, are you more willing to reach out to others? Thanks /cos/. This really helps.

This thread is for ouji and aristocrat (aka "boystyle") discussion. "Boystyle" is shorthand for "boystyle lolita" and refers to the masculine counterparts of lolita and, often, aristocrat fashions. There is a lot of overlap between these styles, and different people use different terms to describe them. So, consider this a thread for those whose style is on the right half of Buttcape's Lolita Family Triangle: http://www.kawacura.com/moripress/wp-content/uploads/2015/06/0dmmLH6-350x350.jpg

Cosplay used to be seen more of as a conversation starter at cons, and an invitation for those into the same series to come talk to you about it. As someone who has cosplayed from series that I am both familiar and unfamiliar with, it’s infinitely more fun to dress up as a character you love and goof around when you’re approached. Not to mention cosplay is an expensive hobby, so putting a lot of time and effort into something you aren’t a big fan of can be pretty daunting.

I would say it’s more expected for “flavor of the month” type cosplays but it does suck going up to someone cosplaying from a niche series, making a little joke about something the character does and getting a blank stare in return. It also sucks to cosplay from things that are popular and be asked if you have “actually played the game” so I would say this affects people who both like and don’t like the series they’re cosplaying from.

>> No.10155688

Yaya's construction is still around where it was back in the day: solid but not mind-blowing as more of the community continues to improve around her. I would never consider her one of the top craftspeople today but she's probably the most successful cosplay business owner in the community, deals with more sponsors and corporations than probably anyone, and is a very experienced judge. She brings value as a cosplay guest but it's a specific kind of value.

>> No.10155776

I'm not saying that her construction skills simply vanished, I'm saying that they played little to no part in why she is famous and "successful". If I asked the average con-goer (or even normies) what Yaya Han is famous for, they will most likely mention cleavage-heavy costumes, not costume construction.

She stated in an interview maybe a decade ago that she makes the majority of her money by selling stuff like gloves, cat ears, etc and used to go to cons specifically to sell her gear. Now, the fake tits are her cash cows. Pathetic, really.

>> No.10155798

I was a baby cosplayer back in the early 2000s, and everyone I know looked up to Yaya because of her craftsmanship chops (which back then was on another level).

>She stated in an interview maybe a decade ago that she makes the majority of her money by selling stuff like gloves, cat ears, etc and used to go to cons specifically to sell her gear. Now, the fake tits are her cash cows

No? She still sells cat ears and things at her con booth, although I imagine she makes a lot of her money through her fabric line and partnerships with Joann's. Her boob job increased her popularity for sure but she's nowhere near the average thot who makes cash by selling softcore porn lewds.

The old downtown convention center doesn't exist anymore, Opryland would be too expensive for the con, and the new convention center doesn't allow late-night events without charging ridiculous fees, so everything would have to end at 9-10. Of course, MTAC wouldn't be big enough for the new center anyway.

>Pretty small con and no need for cosplay but she immediately accepts
>Next day we meet up and walk around, i point out a piano (because we have random public pianos on the streets here) and ask her if she want's to play
>She sits down and of course plays nothing other than megalovania
>normie but she's hot so whatever.
>crowd starts to form due to nice sounds coming from piano
>why does a crowd form around her every time she does something i swear to god this is an anime
>She finishes her playing, some people clap and we get on with the day.

>so blah blah blah we go to the con nothing there really except for me acting like a retard for a lovelive show with my lumica
>She's hungry so we decide to get something to eat since there's a ton of food trucks outside

>"Wait, you sure the atm is ju-?"
>"Anon, it's all good" She said as she gave me a smile
>That moment.
>I'm sure some of you anon's out there can relate. There's not many girls like this and I felt like i had struck gold after a lifetime of mining. Or when you were 8 and you finally beat that boss on Mario Galaxy 2.
>So that's when, I think. I fell in love with this girl.
I know right? Pretty fucking anticlimatic. But this story isn't make believe, i didn't cum on her face or tit's as one of you anon's suggested and that's how this story is gonna go. If it was all sunshine i wouldn't be telling this story, because where's the fun in that? I'll write more tomorrow. or i'll forget and this thread will just drift off in the cesspool of other stories here. Goodnight anons. hope you all get some rest.

>Cesspool of other stories
Wow, you obviously don't know shit about /cgl/. We're a slow board. If you had lurked a little you would have noticed, but it's too late now. I hope you've had a good night's sleep and will continue writing.
