It's pink house, they have their brand name behind them, much like AP has their following willing to pay the money.

But also. Don't diss it until you actually try sewing this shit up on your own. That's 5+ tiers of ruffled layers and every single tier is pintucked (multiple), has lace or trim or more ruffles or more ribbons or more shit sewn on, and that's just the skirt. I'm certainly not doing that for a mere $330, nevermind the fabric costs.

I bought 7m of fabric to copy the style bc I can't spend $1650, but goddamn I'm not looking forward to how many pintucks it'd take to look right, or putting ruffles on the ruffles.

>> No.10310786

The best way to find someone to date is to first make friends, don't go into it only vying for getting in their pants. Just be nice and friendly, compliment their costume, find common interests (the franchise they're cosplaying from for example), exchange social media, find out if you're going to the same thing later, and don't overstay your welcome. Nothing brands you as undateable faster than making the girl uncomfortable by sticking around or even following her after the conversation has ended.

>> No.10310792

It's the same as any other subculture... many are single, many are taken. You don't really have a different code of conduct just because you're at a convention. Unfortunately, sometimes people hit up conventions thinking it's "easier" than outside the convention halls. It's really not. The people who are good at flirting will get the girls, and those who have trouble outside the convention will have the same issues inside.

No... it's not obvious people are single. No one walks around with a blinker saying they're single. That's why you approach people as friends first.

I will go ahead and tell you that you can't use bar logic, no. It's not so simple as just hand a girl number & hook up later. Most will find that approach off-putting.

Being in your 30s and sleeping with girls who are just barely out of their teens is objectively creepy. I don't need your "it's ~~subjective~~" bullshit because the only people who don't find it creepy are other creeps.

Feeling weird, /cgl/'s.

Reflecting on the past year. I posted several times on this board on my cosplay and fitness ambitions. I was a skinny boi, but a tall one with broad shoulders. Decided I wanted to cosplay as All Might and I hurled myself into the fitness world, determined to bring the character to life. Some of you may have even seen some of my posts. I followed several weight lifting programs with fervor. Counted every calorie. Went from skinnyfat to properly fucking strong. I put on 50 pounds of the course of a year, with a 20 pound 'cut' in the middle, to avoid piling on too much fat. At 6'8" I was absolutely determined to pull off All Might - no muscle suit, no gimmicks, just pure size and muscle.

Well the con finally came and went (Youmacon, specifically). And Christ, we're all our own worst critics, huh?

Objectively the cosplay was a success: a huge hit, had hundreds of pictures taken, and everyone loved it. I embodied the character. If you were at Youmacon you must have spotted me or at least heard me. But looking in the mirror I was pretty disappointed in myself. Yes I got BIG. That's for sure. A large, broad chest. Big, thick arms. A very full and substantial frame. At the time of the con I weighed nearly 300 lbs (not fat, again, I'm 6'8"). But my body composition just wasn't there...I looked big, tall, and strong, but in no way ripped or muscular.I scrutinized every inch of my body in the mirror for being simultaneously too large (not lean enough) and too small (not muscular enough). It was so bad that I never shared any pictures of myself online to /cgl/ or reddit despite promising tons of people that I would.

Truthfully, I made the best progress feasible in the course of a single year. The goal body I envisioned would take at least 4 years of hard ass work (or 2.5 years if I juice). So I'm turning my focus to 2020, to try to nail this character. But now that the con is behind me, and it was...anticlimactic, I feel my motivation is nearly lost.

I'll be leaving a job soon so hopefully I can wear stuff out and go out more, I miss it. I miss hosting meets also, but it's hard when you don't have social media or can't coordinate with a friend all that well. :( agh

You know, if you actually read the book you could see that she agrees with you. I'm obviously >>10312506 and the book really resonated with me. The tv-show and general opinion focuses a lot on throwing everything away, but that's not all Marie Kondo has to offer. Following the book asks you to sit down and imagine YOUR ideal home. It doesn't have to be the "shitty minimalistic aesthetic" you hate so much. Your imagination is the limit! Then when you go through everything, KonMari doesn't list how much or little you should have of anything. Rather it says to keep everything you love, and that will be perfect for you. It's a method of finding joy in your life, by loving the things you choose to keep, no matter how many they are. It spreads love, by promoting love.

But sure, why make an effort to understand a message of love when it's easier to hate it in ignorance instead.

Thanks, it really means a lot to hear that from someone.

I've definitely made a lot of progress. I just didn't make as much progress as I thought I'd be able to for the cosplay. The size was (mostly) there but there was hardly any muscle definition at all, even when flexing it wasn't anything impressive. Hell I had to abandon my spandex super-suit altogether because it obscured my musculature and made me look flabby (it and the fact that I didn't have as much muscle per lb of fat as I'd expected after 1 year of work). Instead I just stuck to the casual wear t-shirt All Might (pic related), because at least I could show off my arms/chest in that.

I'm still kind of kicking myself in the butt for thinking that I could go from skinnyfat to totally ripped/jacked in a single year. But goddamnit I made a lot of progress in that year. My bench press increased by 100 lbs. Hell, my deadlift increased by 200 lbs! And I DID look big and strong enough to pull off a convincing All Might. I just didn't look "ripped" or even all that muscular, I merely looked "big."

Its understandably frustrating to pour every ounce of your being into bodybuilding and fitness only to be called "big" or "tall" at the end of it.

Frankly I blame a lot of it on fitness influencer culture. Sure fitness is the responsibility of the individual, but if you spend too much time on Instagram or Youtube looking for bodybuilding advice, you'll start getting very unrealistic expectations on how strong of results you'll be seeing after a year's effort. Fucking EVERYone in the community is using steroids. Well, a good 80% of them are (90% if you focus on cosplayers).

Now I've just gotta stay natty and stay patient.

I want to go to ichiban but all the friends I used to go with don't talk to me or go to cons anymore and all my cosplays are really old and mostly from series I don't even like anymore. I have new stuff I'm working on but even if super crunch there is no possible way any of it will be done in time but I'll feel super lame not going in cosplay + being in cosplay makes it way easier to approach people and talk about stuff you like. I literally just want to go to try to make friends even though I know it's a pointless effort. I don't know what to do but if I'm not going I need to cancel my hotel soon.

LMAK, literally any guy who openly identifies as a feminist is either just trying fuck or has no self respect. Especially since feminism now is an intersectional shitshow with barely any actual points beyond roe v wade pearl clutching everytime a republican is voted into a district.

And the scale isn't a binary "open feminist wearing pussy hats" to "superiority complex addled wifebeater who skulks parking garages." Most guys don't have an identity with it because it's completely irrelevant to their lives.

I wonder if this is a cultural difference because at least half of my male family is feminist and they all have a girlfriend or are married. And the other half are not feminist but they would say they support feminism even though they're the type of dudes to make sexist jokes. You must live in a really depressing part of the world.

>> No.10312847

The main problem with modern feminism is that people aren't aware that feminism is more of a discourse rather than a movement since what constitutes as equality or liberation for women varies if you were to ask a rad fem or a lib fem. Even between those groups, there are people who reside on different extremes of their own spectrum. But men don't care about that because women liberation doesn't affect them in anyway, since having women being suppressed benefits them more, which is why they hate feminists so much and cherry pick on crazies like big red and triggly puff to form their opinion on feminism over all. The best opinion a man can have on feminism is to be neutral and mind his own business.

>> No.10312872

all men are just trying to fuck. They're all predatory whether they're calling themselves a feminist or not. Men know that other men are only looking for sex. that's why they get so offended by men who call themselves feminist. Because they project their own sex obsessed nature onto other men.

Buy and sell stuff while you're in jp to make up for it. Study abroad (college or grad level) is stupid easy and you'll have tons of free time.

I've lost 33 lbs over the course of several months, down to 175 from 208, and I'm super stoked about that. still slowly but steadily losing (2 or 3 pounds per week), and clothes that were once way too tight now fit me. I'm starting to get a bit discouraged, though, because my waist and bust measurements have barely moved in two months. I know its normal to shed inches quickly and then more gradually, but it's just frustrating seeing the scale tell me one story and the tape measure telling me another. i just want to be able to look for blouses without fearing the bust measurement, once upon a time it wouldn't have been an issue.

I know there is no way in hell he likes me in any other ways then friend, maybe worse, maybe just friend of the girl he likes and an ok person to raid with. Ive known him for like 2 years now.

I've been attracted to 3 total people in my life and I married one of them, I'm perfectly content in my current relationship
I'm the mom in my friend group and I tell all of them that I love them and I fucking mean it but I MEAN IT DIFFERENTLY WITH YOU I'M SORRY
My husband "jokingly" calls him my boyfriend
I don't want to be that obnoxious person who clearly wants to jump his bones but I'm a shitty meat beast apparently.

Honestly, the fact your husband brings up your little crush that way may indicate insecurity (in that he's looking for you to refute the fact you're attracted to this guy.) Probably not a good sign; some people don't know how to communicate on topics like this and it translates into dropping hints on their feelings and passive aggressiveness. I'd treat it less like a playful joke and maybe address it as he's not really sure how to handle this and would probably appreciate an honest conversation with you about it
If I were you, I'd keep a mental tally on reasons why this friend crush is incompatible with you (outside of the fact you're married) and remind yourself about why it wouldn't work out. You're trying to dissuade this from going any further, I'm guessing? Also maybe consciously minimize the physical contact you make with this person and start spending more time with other friends. Silly crushes can fade; it just takes a will to brush it off. Or unfortunately, the answer you probably don't want to hear, quietly ending the friendship for the sake of your marriage so that your feelings don't further complicate the relationship.

I could really use the money but I don't want to get involved in something dangerous or immoral. He asked me like it was a normal thing and I knew what it meant but I really don't, or at least not the specifics.
He said all I need to do is say "yes" and provide my paypal and he'll send something to start with and then explain the rest.

Any advice?

>> No.10314497

If you're a sugar baby then, yes, you're expected to have sex with your client. It's more or less like being a high-end escort with the exception you're expected not to be seeing other people on the side. Generally, on top of sex, you need to give your sugar daddy attention & accompany him on dates and such.

That's what a sugar daddy entails. It's like a rented girlfriend. You generally make a little more than a hooker or escort.
