During my unemployment, working on cosplay is the only thing that makes me kind of happy. But it sucks buying materials without a steady paycheck.

I wish I hadn't become a graphic designer.

>> No.9404885

I second this.
Just play the damn game and don't make a fuss if you get insulted.
I don't play a lot but insults are not something that are exclusively targeted at girls. When i watch my bf play games theres insults literally non-stop. It's just how guys are when they compete in something.

I just woke up from a dream where I was walking around a museum wearing Lolita. Then I saw a huge luxurious canopy bed that was part of a display and I started taking my clothes off and laying them out on the museum bed for a "floordinate" photo.

Very sorry anon. Kinda hits sorta close to me since I have PCOS and I am regularly monitored for ovarian cancer because of it. Your friend meant a lot and I'm sure they would have appreciate the thought of you picking out the dress I assume for the funeral.
I dunno if you believe in god or not idk but just keep your loved ones close especially rn losing someone can be super difficult if you isolate yourself...

Measurements (Inches). First is what I wear, second measured.
chest is 36-38 (depends on what i go with)
My waist is iffy, I wear 32 from most brands, a 33 for my suit, but measure in at 34
My hips are 40.
5'7" 158 lbs

I tend to like sweet lolita more, though I'm not against gothic.
Really into Pink/White, main thing is i want pink as a main color, and if not an accent is fine too.
Mainly looking at JSK cause of my shoulders.
I could go to lose a few more pounds, but I've already lost like 80.

I'm sorry but it was a feels thread and the last thread wasn't really the right place to post it.

She was a very good friend. We helped eachother a lot in the fashion and out. I'm glad that she's been burried in her favorite dress. And I'm honored that her brother let me pick out the dress she was buried in. If course she said I could have her closet. And I will
Cherish it. But I'll never be able to wear that dress she is burried in again ( we twinned it). But her clothes will forever be in my closet in a special place. It's our memories and each one holds a story of excitement when she won the auction, got the popular color way in preorder..... waiting like children for Santa for the mail to arrive. Great memories that I'll always cherish.

Yeah....uh thanks. I think.

>> No.9405197

Eating too little slows down your metabolism, which is what you need to burn calories, especially if you diet and don't exercise. A slow metabolism can be reversed with proper diet and exercise.
This is what I was going for, I agree with the rest of your statements. Much love, anon.

>> No.9405216

I mean, it's definitely true that metabolic slowdown exists! The problem is that giving advice "your metabolism might have slowed, eat more" is that the difference, in documented cases, is ~200 calories/day, which is a pretty small window - finding the "sweet spot" where you can eat more and lose more weight is going to be really hard.

Plus, since BMR is just an estimate (unless you get it done by an actual exercise scientist), and people generally underestimate intake even when they are trying to calorie count, you can't know what deficit you "should have" discounting metabolic slowdown -- so it's quite likely that you just don't have a deficit regardless of metabolic slowdown effects.

Either way, if you're trying and failing to lose weight (and are not having issues with binge-eating or lack of energy), "eat less" is always a go-to before "eat more."

Literally never said they should eat more. I said that they could have slowed their metabolism and that a proper diet and exercise routine would help them. I also recommended a doctor, nutritionist, and personal trainer to find out which problem they had so they could get professional help. Neither you or I know what's up, so I offered as many causes based on the information given and gave advice to seek professional help.

You seem to be mad about a hypothetical problem, which would have a deficit as a proper diet solution, so I don't really know why we're arguing at all. We're literally on the same page and you're just mad about wordage.

My ex was extremely abusive and manipulative. Unfortunately, she also happens to be a quite famous cosplayer. She cheated on me and then moved in with the guy a week after I dumped her and immediately started very publicly slandering me as much as she could. Almost my entire social network evaporated overnight and I didn't even know why until several years later, when a former mutual friend approached me after she'd done a similar thing to them and told me what had happened.

To this day I'm effectively blackballed from the cosplay community because of things I didn't do. I can't even talk about it and try to clear my own name because even the "sympathetic" people are 50/50 on who they believe and start attacking me if I come anywhere close to the truth of what happened, and the few people who actually know what happened are either not involved in the scene or aren't willing to get involved in drama by defending me. (At least they've done so privately and kept me from thinking I'm insane, though.)

I just want to be part of the scene again and for people to know that none of the things I was accused of were true, and that I was the victim if anything, but I know it'll never happen.

Bloomers/safety shorts helps you not flash whatever's under when you live someplace windy, or even if you don't. You'd be surprised how much leg you show when you're bending and reaching across the table for the salt shaker. The skirt really does act like a bell shape and tilts pretty far up. If you're wearing opaque tights it doesn't look so bad, but for those wearing ankle socks, sheer tights or OTKs, showing that much bare leg that close to your cooch, in public, while being covered in lace everywhere else, does look somewhat fetishy.

The better bloomers are the ones that are almost the same length as your petti, that's why bloomers are better than safety/sports shorts, plus it looks good when the underneath of your skirt is a sea of white ruffles instead of ruffles plus rugged shorts, so even if your skirt does tilt too far it still looks nice instead of jarring. Shorts are still better than flashing the world your thong though.

If you really want to go without shorts/bloomers, either make it a point to never bend, ever, or stand anywhere near glass walls/balconies (you'd be surprised how much you can see from below, even if the person looking up isn't standing directly below you), or only do tea-length, flat outfits. Otherwise, bloomers are your best friend for not having to worry about who's trying to look under your skirt.

19 Honour thy father and thy mother: and, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thy selfe.

20 The young man saith unto him, All these things haue I kept from my youth up: what lacke I yet?

I don't follow anything on the news, I just look around for potential investments. When I heard nintendo wanted to make a mobile game I invested a little bit. Since the stocks were already pretty low. Then I heard that it was going to be pokemon go, and I dumped quite a bit, around 35 thousand, and a week after pokemon go was released I sold my shares. Nintendos shares at the time went up around 110%, so the 45k and the 2k I invested was doubled.

People say it's risky but if you know the market it's fine. Mobile games profit like crazy, pokemon profits like crazy. It was pretty much guaranteed to be profitable.

People go to school for this stuff, so I'm not exactly the most learned. I average around 65k a year. The nintendo investment was the only time I dumped a large sum. Wish I put more, but too stressful.

I've been at this for a few years though.

The issue is that the prop makers and cosplayers I do think are cool, always try to end up turning something friendly I do into a pissing contest. Or in recent cases, when they've asked me how to help them make something, and I give them a really good way of handling if, they just go 'well, no. That's not how 'x' did if.'

Also there's this thing with me, where I'll meet REALLY GOOD cosplayers but it actually turns out that they had a whole fucking team behind them and the person I was talking to was just a weaponized THOT.

Like, I really want to give it time Anon, I really do. But I feel like the cosplay scene is changing for the worst...

13 ¶ And one of the company saide unto him, Master, speake to my brother, that he divide the inheritance with me.

14 And he said unto him, Man, who made mee a judge, or a divider over you?

15 And he said unto them, Take heed and beware of covetousnes: for a mans life consisteth not in the abundance of the things which he possesseth.

16 And he spake a parable unto them, saying, The ground of a certaine rich man brought foorth plentifully.

17 And he thought within himselfe, saying, What shall I doe, because I have no roome where to bestow my fruits?

18 And he said, This will I doe, I will pull downe my barnes, and build greater, and there will I bestow all my fruits, and my goods.

19 And I will say to my soule, Soule, thou hast much goods layd up for many yeeres, take thine ease, eate, drinke, and be merry.

1Now the tax collectors and sinners were all drawing near to hear him.

2And the Pharisees and the scribes grumbled, saying, “This man receives sinners and eats with them.”

3So he told them this parable:

4“What man of you, having a hundred sheep, if he has lost one of them, does not leave the ninety-nine in the open country, and go after the one that is lost, until he finds it?

5And when he has found it, he lays it on his shoulders, rejoicing.

6And when he comes home, he calls together his friends and his neighbors, saying to them, ‘Rejoice with me, for I have found my sheep that was lost.’

7Just so, I tell you, there will be more joy in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous persons who need no repentance.

8“Or what woman, having ten silver coins,a if she loses one coin, does not light a lamp and sweep the house and seek diligently until she finds it?

9And when she has found it, she calls together her friends and neighbors, saying, ‘Rejoice with me, for I have found the coin that I had lost.’

10Just so, I tell you, there is joy before the angels of God over one sinner who repents.”

The cosplay scene always has changed. It's best to not tell people what to do when making props unless they ask you first on how to do it. And if they ask that's when you say " well what do you know about it so far" and go from there. There is no wrong way to make things when the outcome is almost always the same. Everyone goes at it differently. Right now it's about being noticed and getting likes. Who's to say in ten years it's going to be that way? Stop worry about others opinions about you and fitting in and just do what you want. Sooner or later this competition mind set will move to something else. All fads change.

Because of the popularity of "geek" culture, cosplay has become a business. I can't tell you the number of times I've tried to talk construction and been met with "See my blog/patreon/guide"

A lot of passion has left in the big costumes. I feel like its having a negative effect on the general, who see amazing costumes and assume its just the girl making everything instead of the entire team who made the costume.

But I do believe its going to fade. The geek is cliche will slowly die and investing is cosplay wont be profitable anymore.

3 And he shall sit as a refiner and purifier of silver: and he shall purifie the sonnes of Levi, and purge them as gold & silver, that they may offer unto the Lord an offring in righteousnes.

4 Then shall the offerings of Judah and Jerusalem bee pleasant unto the Lord, as in the dayes of old, and as in former yeeres.

5 And I will come neere to you to judgement, and I will bee a swift witnesse against the sorcerers, and against the adulterers, and against false swearers, and against those that oppresse the hireling in his wages, the widowe, and the fatherlesse, and that turne aside the stranger from his right, and feare not me, saith the Lord of hosts.

6 For I am the Lord, I change not: therefore ye sonnes of Iacob are not consumed.

11 And I wil rebuke the devourer for your sakes: and he shal not destroy the fruits of your ground, neither shal your vine cast her fruit before the time in the field, saith the Lord of hosts.

12 And all nations shall call you blessed: for ye shall be a delightsome land, saith the Lord of hosts.

13 ¶ Your words have bin stout against me, saith the Lord, yet ye say, What have we spoken so much against thee?

14 Ye have said, It is vaine to serve God: and what profit is it, that we have kept his ordinance, and that wee have walked mournfully before the Lord of hosts?

¶ No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one and love the other, or else hee will holde to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and Mammon.
Therfore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what yee shall eate, or what ye shall drinke, nor yet for your body, what yee shall put on: Is not the life more then meate? and the body then raiment?
Behold the foules of the aire: for they sow not, neither do they reape, nor gather into barnes, yet your heavenly father feedeth them. Are yee not much better then they?
Which of you by taking thought, can adde one cubite unto his stature?
And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lillies of the field, how they grow: they toile not, neither doe they spinne.
And yet I say unto you, that even Solomon in all his glory, was not arayed like one of these.
Wherefore, if God so clothe the grasse of the field, which to day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven: shall he not much more clothe you, O yee of little faith?
Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eate? or, what shall we drinke? or wherewithall shall wee be clothed?
(For after all these things doe the Gentiles seeke:) for your heavenly father knoweth that ye have neede of all these things.
But seeke ye first the kingdome of God, and his righteousnesse, and all these things shalbe added unto you.
Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of it selfe: sufficient unto the day is the evill thereof.

Only problem is that re-enactment has such fucked male:female ratio's, same goes for battleLARPs. Though most social LARPs are 1:1-1:3.

This is a shit mindset. Stuff only happens because you make it happen. You have to put LOADS of effort in. And even then someone like you do come along and say some silly crap like "you don't like the hobby enough". Most people have tons of hobbies or have tried loads of hobbies. And the vast majority are doing the hobbies they fucking enjoy. Maybe the hobbies they enjoy doing though aren't helping them find new friends.

This. Being an adult has it's challenges and a lack of time to put into more hobbies and friends is one of them.

My career demands so much from me that I no longer have time to maintain superfluous relationships. I'd need to dedicate what little time I have left to a single person and going to a convention is a good way to meet people who would share my interests. I'd prefer not to be with someone I meet through my work, because I want it entirely separate from my personal life and it's a heavily male field anyways, A convention is an ideal social situation for trying to spark something up with another nerd, and it lets me get a feel for people before making any serious commitments of time. Or rather, it's easier to meet a few people at a con than trying to shake down dating websites for getting coffee dates with people.

You think of friendships as "superfluous relationships?" I can't imagine relying on one person to fulfil all your emotional/social needs. You would need the perfect match, and even then, it could get draining.

I mean, it is relevant. There are travel-heavy careers, ones with sales/billing targets, jobs with crunch time, physically exhausting jobs, workplaces where long hours are the culture... a job can be demanding in a lot of different ways, and they all have a different kind of impact on your social life.

Dream dresses don't have to be expensive, it depends on what they are since some pieces and brands are more coveted and difficult to find than others. Either way, the excitement you often see in dream dress threads is genuine, finding and buying a dress you dreamed about for a long time is pretty satisfying.

In all honesty though, lots of guys want to do more than just fuck. Might try looking into getting more normie friends funnily enough. As you're (hopefully) not underage normies are easily getting past the "I want to fuck everything" stage and growing into a mature well-rounded adult.

My Korean language professor found out I wore lolita and insisted I wear it to their Korean heritage night. I didn't want to because 1) it's a Korean heritage night and 2) I don't want to make a spectacle of myself. I have to volunteer for the event and she is repeatedly sending me emails bullying me into wearing what she calls "princess costumes" to amuse and entertain the children. I've explained to her time and time again that they aren't princess costumes and they're not to entertain children, it's a genuine hobby. This morning, I received an email telling me that she talked it over with the other staff of the event and that they don't care if it's offensive, it will make the children happy and that they expect to see a princess there tomorrow. I seriously want to scream because I'm not some sort of Disney party princess and I'm not a clown for hire. I find it really inappropriate that she's emailed me several times trying to harass me into wearing expensive clothing to entertain children. On top of that, she wants me to face paint which is already dangerous enough in terms of spilling. I have no idea how to get out of this and the more I think about how she insists they're princess costumes for children, the angrier I get.

Volunteer isn't the right word. I'm forced to volunteer for class credit. We have to have 8 hours of volunteering for Korean events to pass.

>how hard is it to just eat when you feel hungry and stop when you don't?
well some people have their sense of hunger messed up by constant grazing for years or being overweight. Relying on the "just eat when you're hungry" only works when you're clearly able to recognise when you're actually hungry and not just feeling like you want to munch on something out of habit. It's easy and natural for people who've always had good eating habits and discipline, but might not be that way for others, so it's not a guideline that works for everyone.

Also if one's gotten accustomed to comfort eating etc it can be hard to stick to a healthy diet, especially if one was brought up in a shit home that instilled unhealthy food habits in them.

However in general, yeah, just eating a) less and b) healthier isn't that impossible at all

>> No.9406480

So if her teacher asks her to bark like a dog and hop around, she should?

As long as she's doing the volunteer work for the credit, it shouldn't matter if she's wearing the lolita dress or not. She's following what she's supposed to be doing and not bending over backwards for wild requests from the teachers.

The other anons suggesting the cheap dresses had great ideas, and I agree with them. However it turns out, she doesn't have follow through with completely unreasonable requests as the ones her teacher suggested.

I'm not fat (started to gain weight at some point and nipped that shit in the bud tho) and am exercising, but if you don't get that just because staying thin is relatively easy and effortless for you, it's different for people who may never have eaten healthily in their life due to the circumstances they grew up in, you're not very smart.

It's easier to keep following healthy habits you've always had than it is to break out of bad ones and learn completely new, foreign habits. The circumstances you're brought up in affect a lot of stuff, from how you approach books, education, life goals and society to how you approach food. "Normal" depends a whole lot on what sort of parents do you happen to have.

Hey everybody. I ended up emailing her and telling her that my dresses were getting dry cleaned since when I told her I didn't want to do it before, I assumed it was the end of the conversation and sent them to be cleaned. She was upset and asked if I could get one of them back because now the staff expected a princess to show up. I just told her that it wasn't possible and that I'd be happy to wear some of my more decadent Liz Lisa clothes (this I don't mind since I wear Liz Lisa on my off days). She eventually gave up and sent me a defeated, passive aggressive email about how she's disappointed but at least I can still face paint. Whatever. I'm over it now and I'll be glad when I'm out of her class. Thank you all for the support and advice though.

>durr the key to not being fat is exercising, if only they bothered to exercise a little bit they'd stop being fat

The key to not being fat is controlling what and how much you eat, not exercising. It's very easy to stuff your face with so many calories it'd take several hours daily in the gym, or all day every day, to work that shit off.

Going around telling people retarded shit like "hurr just eat whenever you're hungry till you're not hungry any more, and then just exercise a few times a week for a bit you'll be thin it's easy" is just feeding them misinformation.

You control weight through calorie intake, and muscle tone and general fitness through exercising.
For example, my aunt is one of the more active people I know, yet despite exercising every day she's still fat because she loves to cook and drink wine and puts a lot of cream etc in everything she makes, and on the other hand I myself lost a ton of weight when I broke my leg and was stuck on the sofa at my parents and ate strictly according to their meal schedule, because I couldn't open the fridge or prepare stuff while on crutches.

This is not the same as saying "fat people can't help being fat baaww", obviously they can they just need to eat less. But I'm really sick of the "just start exercising, that'll do it badabing" crap
