So originally there was supposed to be another thread and open up a cross board dialogue but some how that's gone, so I want to reopen that dialogue since the /fa/ thread is pretty much done.

I invite you to have your own thread about fashion, it's board, and culture thus allowing the two boards to read and share thoughts and comments, and clear up misconceptions about one and another; as I think the two hobbies are sister hobbies in a way.

I'm wearing a pair of 10 year old hello kitty pajama pants and a some t-shirt with some band spraypainted on it that was going to be thrown out and a swimsuit bottom

/Fa/ -pursuit of looking better say to day and buying high quality education

/Cgl/- pursuit of frivolous spending at artist alley for objects that clutter the home, and....to perfect the art of costuming Japanese cartoon characters within a constrained budget

/fa/ here

I do believe both hobbies have a lot in common as they are both self expression orientated, and both have a lot to do with aesthetics and share a lot in common regarding incorporation and interpretation of different pieces, silhouettes, and so on

People saying that fashion is purely for functionality is wrong, as fashion is mainly meant for self expression and can actually be anti establishment and express music taste, for example

In fact, I think cgl is more self expression orientated in the fact that it promotes DIY. There is rarely ever a DIY thread on /fa/, sometimes people even make fun of others for DIYing. Then a designer uses a DIY esque aesthetic and /fa/ loves them. Its fucked.

Gives the implication that you're poor, and that you're ruining premade pieces. Sometimes, people on /fa/ hate it when people go against the norm, sometimes they embrace it. Its a mixed pot, but DIY threads are always either dead or have a lot of hate.

Sorry, anon, I've actually never seen Yohji posted except by /fa/ every once in a while. You'll get better reception even if you post something mainstream like Dior or Prada or McQueen (and VW, of course)

If you're thumbing your nose at mid-tier jfash brands, try Alice AUAA. Costs more, does proper runway shows, cool concept, and cgl actually likes it.

/fa/ here. why is lolita included in cosplay and not fashion?

Ignoring the social and cultural context, I can't see how it's essentially any different than someone devoted to a designer label that is similarly expansive enough to cover a general lifestyle and perspective on fashion, i.e. Yohji Yamamoto

irl is it actually grouped with cosplay, or is that just 4chan?

>> No.9046453

>>9046391
>why is lolita included in cosplay and not fashion?
It's not. There are anime and manga characters that wear lolita that can be cosplayed. There is the lolita fashion which has it's own brands, rules, and substyles. Mixing them is what brings the carnivorous hatred of ravenous, angry gulls down on you.

>> No.9046461

>>9046391

afaik the entire board started because moot went to cons, so cgl was basically where "convention" people gathered. Japanese brands didn't have a shop on US soil until recently, but they did have pop-up shops at cons, so lolitas started frequenting the conventions board to see the programming and such. Later on when the con board became permanent, cosplay and lolita got grouped together because of conventions being a commmon meeting ground.

I've heard that fa isn't very friendly to any female fashion, though, we keep getting people complaining about fa being dicks, or sometimes there's a thread on cgl where someone says fa shitted up their thread and sent them over to cgl because they posted some normal-looking girly outfit. I'd say fa, or rather, the shitposters on fa, are just as responsible for keeping jfashion and lolita out of fa as much as the fashions being on seperate boards by themselves.

Mind you, there's a lot of difference between lolita fashion and "normal" fashion, so "normal" fashion and lolita wouldn't really mix anyway. But the first fa crossover thread on cgl got deleted because some guy on fa "just wanted to rile girls up", his words, not mine, as written on the first cgl thread over in fa. I get that this is apparently "fun" for some guys, but here you go, the natural consequence is that girls just prefer to post here rather than at fa. We have our share of trolls and jerks, but at least you don't get guys being dicks and shitting up entire threads just because they can't handle a girl posting on 4chan.

just because there are a lot of lolitas into anime and cosplay, it doesn't mean that the two intermix- looking at /cgl/, lolita threads don't really mention either, and they're quite distinct. Looking at outside 4chan, lolita discussion groups seldom mention anime or cosplay.

/fa/ here. I get lolita, I think but I don't get cosplay. why cosplay

I don't get it. I mean, yea, dressing up is fun. only reason I haven't done it myself is because cons are expensive. but people treat it like a genuine passion or subculture. I don't get it.

I'm not missing anything, right? it's just dressing up as fictional characters. it's as arbitrary and shallow as that, right? so how can people take it so seriously?

There's different reasons people do it. At cons, its a great way to meet other people who like the same media you do. Its waaay easier to strike up a conversation with a random person if they have some visible sign that they're into the same show/comic/whatever as you. When I'm dressed up, I tend to think of it as an open invitation to talk to me about whatever it is I'm wearing (although certainly not all cosplayers think the same thing).

Other people like the challenge of costuming or crafting. They may be drawn to designs that suit their skills, or that stretch their abilities. Its nice to be acknowledged for your technical prowess by other tailors, sewers, and crafters.

Now, there are huge online communities around cosplay, so some people do it because they want to make friends or stay in touch with other people.

And of course, there is the notoriety and fame that can come from cosplay. Dressing up at a con is kind of like being a celebrity for the day, and it feels really good to have people fawning on you. Getting really good pictures of yourself doesn't hurt either.

To be honest, to be honest. I hate /fa/'s taste and opinions on most things. I's just a bunch of anime nerds and general losers getting horny over cyber goth and minimalistic shit. I also can't stand the constant use of monochrome and black (It's the easiest and safest thing to do in fashion.) I only go there becuase other places like KTT or Reddit (/r/streetwear not MFA) have a dichotomy when discussing fashion that I can get tired of. I think /fa/ board culture wise is a step up from /r9k/ (but not by much, they still go full autism, but at least they don't constantly view women as objects and complain that they can't get laid when they get tired of masturbating.) /fa/ isn't up their own ass, as much as boards like /mu/ though, it also doesn't view being normal (Talking part in and enjoying mainstream culture things, like going out pop music etc as something negative) as a bad thing.

Except that it sounds like you're doing that right now. Wahh, men need more respect, we have to deal with your complaining about inequality. It would hurt our fee fees if we weren't so strong and manly that we don't have feelings because emotions are for wimps.


Also side note about your little comic, dudes saying nice things about shy girls on the internet doesn't not mean shy girls have it made irl.

I've only met 4 "well-known" cosplayers

1: girl my age who got famous for sexy pikachu costume, and comes out to socal whenever it's advantageous///coasts on her looks/body and isn't that great looking IRL

2: Well known photographer who has a patreon and a kickstarter for a "project" was really just a vacation with girl 3....has a shitty clothing line with douchebag she's dating now

3: married woman who is the wife of a neckbeard mtg player (how i know her and everyone else on the list so far) poses alot for the photographer part of the failed kickstarter...it failed because they haven't delivered on their rewards from what i'm told.


4: Fetish website, charges men for sessions....looked her up because i recognized some of the photos being in front of SDCC in cosplay and...turned out was a huge false rape accusation drama thing where she just tripped outside and fell.......people just assumed she had to be raped...because...feminism


so going off those experiences, I can genuinely say that most cosplayers tend to be self-absorbed, narcissistic and generally toxic to be around. I could never see myself being genuine friends with these people nor can i trust anyone who would.

Sure i see them around town and will say hi, or see them at a con...but I wouldn't trust these people with a pack of cigarettes let alone my dogs.

I don't know how much you know about the series, but judging by how you superficially dismiss a classic, I don't think very much.

I design/build furniture and do basic tailoring for myself, plan to start building garments when I have the time. I get that some people find the act of "making" meditative or whatever but I don't see why that would be the end-all to the activity, why you'd lock yourself into something as creatively limiting as recreation.

ie I don't just build furniture, or get together with people who do also, I do it because there are designs I want to explore in the field, routes towards reframing the way it's understood, etc. The community I would engage in would be people with a critical familiarity with the mediums, a sensitivity to their historical background and context and an appreciation of what I'm doing or other artists embarking on similar engagements.

It's not just stuff I made for the sake of making it and learning skills. If that's the extent of the higher reasoning, how isn't that shallow? And why something as arbitrary and meaningless as recreating the costumes of fictional characters? It's very low culture, an intellectual & artistic dead end. I suspect it has mostly to do with a desire to stand out at conventions, get photos taken, etc. as well as competition.

>> No.9064875

>>9064791
Do you feel the same way about historical reenactors? Costume and prop designers on movies? Because there are billion dollar industries around making and creating costumes from existing mediums.For a lot of cosplay, you're not copying an existing garment or outfit, you're translating something from a totally different medium into real life. Plus, there's plenty of people who create their own unique designs (look at gijinkas for a whole different creative process).

There is certainly an element to getting attention at conventions, because finding an amazing picture where you look good, or where you really capture the character is really rewarding too. But for people who make costumes (and I can't really speak to the people who buy their costumes, I don't see the appeal in that), there is a ton of work that goes into creating something, and you have to really like the process to make cosplays.

But I'm glad you felt the need to come to this board to insult our hobbies. I'm sure that's a much more fulfilling pursuit than creating something.

I know I may get some flack for this but these's threads have given me an interest in cosplay. Personally though I would only do it as a date thing.

I wouldn't do cosplay with friends becuase I feel like I couldn't personally vibe with a cosplay type of people but I could with a cosplay type of girl? I don't know I've found myself swiping right on more cosplay girls on tinder etc. Who knows I probably wouldn't vibe with a cosplay girl but I want to go to a con now.

So it's cool thanks for peaking my interest in this hobby.

If you please me it will be frills 24/7. If you disappoint me it will be Bodyline and sadness.
