Im an expert on weight loss and this is just false. Maybe 5lbs will be attributed to water + food weight but the rest is actual fat. Anon is wanting to look good for a cosplay soon, so I'm assuming they want a quick fix for their fat ass.

it's impossible to target certain areas of fat, the fit sticky covers this pretty well. if your genetics for fat storage are bad, then you could have more face fat than other people, but you can't target face fat unless you lose fat across the board

I really wanted to get something from the AP misty sky MTO. And even though I have the money for it, I decided against it. I'm not really quite sure why. Part of me thinks it's because I know I'll have another chance later and should focus on getting the new Halloween stuff. But the other part of me feels like I won't even shell out the money for that when it's time.

I feel like I'm not really interested in lolita right now. It doesn't help that it's hot either. Hopefully once fall arrives, I'll feel rejuvenated

I'm getting lonelier and lonelier as my friends are being productive in their lives and getting more opportunities while I officially became a NEET as of a few days ago. I have below-average social skills and I'm very quiet as a result. My depression and apathy has stunted my growth and opportunities. I've become boring. I've always been a little boring, but it's worsened since I gave up my only hobby: drawing. I passively want to get back into it again, but motivation is fickle and my willpower weak. I don't see a reason to do anything. I'm really tempted to post in the Friend Finder thread, but even though I love anime I find it difficult to talk about, and this is a weeb board so you're expected to hold conversations on it. I want to play tennis and go hiking with people. I want to spontaneously invite people to take a day trip with me to big cities. I want to go to cons and help friends prep their cosplays. It's not as if I have low self-esteem or confidence when it comes to making friends. I'm friendly and outgoing for an introvert and I know I can make friends easily. The issue is with keeping the friendship alive. I'm boring and bad with words so it's hard to hold a conversation.

Hey, fellow introvert-chan here. Honestly, you sound like my ideal friend. I just want someone I can chill with, or go exploring with, without the expectation of conversation. I get tired of talking really quickly, but it's considered rude and awkward to just sit in silence when you're with friends. Despite all of this, I still manage to make friends easily, but I have to tell them point blank that I will go weeks without talking to them, and it's not because I'm mad.

It's tough to sell secondhand right now, you have to sell at a considerable loss to move things unless you're trying to get rid of popular prints. Newer (like year old) secondhand brand can be cheap thanks to Wunderwelt, Tokyo Alice, etc, and Taobao brands have made it cheap to buy new.

I guess people who snoop get what they deserve, but I had to pretend I was turning on the PS4 to play in the living room since that's where they left their laptop. I don't know what to do. I used to be the fattest friend and like really fucking autistic since I had no friends until I got to college but I really thought these people accepted me. I lost a lot of weight and learned to actually grow up with support and we all just graduated college in the Spring. I got into cosplay because of them! I didn't think I was really clingy or annoying, but I do know I cherish them really deeply since they honestly changed my life and I'm really mindful and even doormat myself and make meals and desserts for us out of the blue just to be a 'good' roommate. Now I just want to know if they hated me from the beginning or even if they were just going to drop this on me when our lease ends in a few weeks at the start of August. I'm really lost, cgl. What do?

>> No.9564365

Start looking for somewhere new so when it comes up you'll be mildly prepared.
In regards to your friendship, it could be that they're being petty as you've made lots of big, positive changes to your life and physical body.
Or as you've mentioned being a bit of a doormat and "good housemate" can be annoying and come off as fake.
I think you should take the opportunity to grow away from them and start making new friends or at least find out who of your current group maybe worth while keeping around

Surgery is the only option for this, sorry. As the other anon said "targeted loss" is impossible, and face flesh is usually not "fat" anyway but just unevenly distributed dermis and tissue.

DW anon, I feel your pain; saving up for a neck/chin surgery myself. Family just has bad necks, no way out of it but the knife. Don't let anyone make you feel bad about it either, there's no difference between an ear piercing or a tattoo or a boob job or a facelift. It's all body modification. Have the body you want/can afford and that you're happy with. "Natural" is a fallacy.

Upcoming vacation time means I have more free time to shop and wear lolita and not my business suits. It also means I have more time for the new guy I'm dating. I'm really happy where my life is going finally. It took a long time but it's nice I found someone who thinks I'm cute in my dresses and more importantly, someone I trust.

>Bad feels
New guy does some risky stuff in bed we previously agreed not to do, even when I said no. When he was done and got up I noticed day old bruises that looked like fingerprints on his ass that were not from me. I only got a quick glance but it made me wonder if I put my trust in the wrong person. Then later on I scrolled across his new friend on my newsfeed. It's an average girl, but I zeroed in on the background. It was a Bodyline storefront.

Now I'm paranoid he might think it's ok to sleep around with itas and not practice safe sex.

Here's a nice hefty blogpost.

I broke up with my girlfriend of three years about a month ago, it was a mutual thing, there were problems that we had with each other that we had just been ignoring and everything kind of added up.
Since then I've started talking to new girls, and I've been feeling pretty good about it.
A few days ago I hooked up with a girl off Tinder. I have a habit of wanting to pussy out and cancel a lot, so I made sure to go through with it because I need to experience some new things.
The minute we were done, I felt awful. It just felt meaningless. Sure it was kinda fun but in the same way that picking scabs is kinda fun. We ended up watching Wheel of Fortune for three hours because I just didn't want to do anything.
Since then, I've felt like absolute shit. I'm miserable every night. I wouldn't call it depression, I just feel sad, but not sad because I've broken up with her. It's just melancholy.
I think it's because I still have a crush on a girl I'm good friends with. I know it's not just pure lust, since I don't have any sexual attraction to her really, I just really like her.
It's not going to happen though, I've known that for about four years, so I've convinced myself that I'm not interested in her.
Lately I've realised that I would like to be with her, or at least close friends with her.
So to combat all this, I've gone into hardcore retail therapy mode. I'm in overdraft right now, and will likely still be in overdraft when I get paid next week. I have more stuff than I know what to do with. I need to keep myself occupied because that way I don't need to think, and that way I don't get sad.
Also I'm very nostalgic about my mid teen years, and as a result I haven't really matured since then. It was a problem when I was in a relationship, and some of my old friends I'm talking to are telling me I need to grow up, or something similar.

tl;dr I'm an overspending mess because I'm a baby that can't handle emotion

>> No.9564468

Stop lying to him.

You need to work out more. Specifically cardio. You also need to change your diet. Trust me, I have the same problem every time I go into bulking season. I go from puffy face back to lean face in about 2 weeks through diet and exercise.

I never had a puffy fat face growing up through high school. I was always slim. It was only recently while I was bulking that someone mentioned me looking bigger in the face that I noticed.

General rant about a cosplayer of my group,
She's a the kind of girl who's built with wide shoulders and hips with not much of a waist. Claims to eat healthy, gym etc but she's put on heaps of weight and it all sits on the her waist. Keeps on suggesting that she's just big-boned and curvy but honestly she just looks pregnant (which she isn't).

We're starting to get the next cosplay plans and patterns made up and her body type is just a nightmare to work with. She just keeps insisting that she's hourglass even though her new measurements don't show any tapering in. As a group we'll a little group health and fitness work but she's not keen on it as she doesn't think she needs it.

She's asked me for my opinion and I told her that her current measurements move her towards the apple shape not the hourglass.

tldr: How do you deal with a friend asking if they're fat but has had body appearance issues in the past.

Hello friend. It will get better. Just listen to me on one thing: Just because you felt nothing from a hook up doesn't mean anything. Just because you don't want to have a random fling, doesn't make you a pussy. There is nothing wrong with not wanting to fuck a bunch of women. There's nothing wrong with you as a man saving intimacy for a relationship. There is nothing wrong with hooking up either. You just gotta find yourself. Be happy with you so you can be happy with women. That's what makes a 'real' man.

Most people start off in high school, so you have a few years of catching up to do, but I have faith anon.

Thank you! It's very sweet of you to pop in and reach out to me like this. My skill level is nonexistent right now since giving up art, but I may be interested in challenges and trades once my level goes above stick figures again. My only reservation about posting in the Friend Finder thread is that I'm extremely poor at keeping communication via internet. I'm very much a "in-person" kind of friend.

You sound ideal, too. If by some magical chance you live in central TX then please hmu. I'll watch you play video games and we can explore nearby parks all day.

This is... oddly motivating. Thank you, kind stranger. I might start participating in the draw threads to practice. I recognize that I need a passion again, and halfheartedly trying to play piano or learn French/Japanese isn't doing it for me.

Maybe I should also consider curating a list. My bday is next month and my famalam always gets me one or two big items instead of a bunch of small things. My family supports Lolita and didn't have a hissy when I dropped my own cash on a 300$ dress like I anticipated, but I hope they get the hint and don't buy a replica or something.

I'm not picky and I don't care if they just bought me a pair of plain socks but I want to let them kind of share the fun of picking out something and seeing my reaction.

I thought I was making new cosplay friends, but at a room party at our last con a couple weeks ago, they all started making fun of me, and I can't tell if they were teasing or genuinely being mean. I sort of halfheartedly defended myself while also kind of laughing about it, but that just made them make fun of me more aggressively. Now I feel too anxious to even contact them about the next con we were talking about attending together that's coming up in a about a month and a half weeks and think I'm just going to try to go with other friends or alone instead if they don't bring it up first. Sucks because I was actually looking forward to this crew and they all seemed cool and we were making cosplay plans, but this incident felt a little too unprompted and aggressive to have been just friends teasing each other, but maybe that's really the way they interact with each other once they feel comfortable with a new person. Either way, I don't think I like it. Eh.

Where do you live and what are you eating? Buy canned or frozen meat, frozen vegetables and fruit, and rice. Food doesn't have to be fresh to be healthy for you. Get some different seasonings to keep it interesting and tasty, and measure everything out according to the serving sizes on the packages so you have a rough estimate of how many calories you're eating.

You don't have to eat expensive healthy foods. You can lose weight eating Twinkies as long as you don't eat too many of them.

I feel like I've become my friends bitch when it comes to cosplay and that they've done a pretty good job of alienating me.

We used to do pair cosplays because we were into the same thing, but with each con I'd be asked what I was doing and they'd insert themselves into whatever plans I had, even if they didn't like the source. Whatever, the more the merrier I thought.
Except then when we made plans specifically with each other in mind, my friend would often fail to complete theirs even when I was working overtime to get mine done and my boyfriends.
My friend would then expect me to drop what I'd made and switch to something else just so they could join. They're lazy, unmotivated and usually make the con a miserable experience by whining all of the time.

I used to be involved and invited to a lot of groups with other people but now feel as though I'm not or can't because of my friend and people want to avoid them.

I just want things to go back to how they were and not feel like I'm cosplaying for this person and for myself again.

You're making excuses so hard right now.

Eating healthy actually costs LESS because youre eating LESS.

I try to eat less than I usually do, but the problem is that I have super bad blood sugar, so when I get super hungry ad can't concentrate on anything, and my hands get super shaky
And I have super bad self control, so I go and grab snacks every now and then if I don't eat until I feel full
I've tried to supply myself with more healthy snacks though, like fruits and nuts (although nuts are also super expensive here, like a tiny bag is $4)
>change your meats for chicken
Yeah, I already do that, but mostly because chicken is so much cheaper
I'll try to go for more walks though, thanks
>Get an exercise bike for inside
My apartment is waaaay to small for that unfortunately... It's already crowded, and I don't even have that much stuff
Sweden. I eat a lot of pasta and pasta sauces with bacon and stuff like frozen meatballs (I know, but they're really cheap).
I could try to eat more rice and plain veggies though... I guess I'm a bit picky when it comes to food haha
Thanks for the advice though anon!
I'll check out the app, thanks!
Again though, one of my problems is that it's hard for me to eat less, but I'll try to get the calorie count down

>> No.9565611

Not really? Eating healthy isn't always eating less. I'm not eating that big portions, I'm just eating stuff like pasta because it's so much cheaper
Like, at my local supermarket, a small bag of salad (for maybe 3 portions) is like $5. A bag of pasta is maybe $3, and lasts maybe 5 meals.
Putting together a meal of fish, rice and veggies will cost me maybe $8, a meal with pasta and bacon will cost me maybe $2
So no, eating healthy doesn't automatically cost less.

When going cheap, frozen veggies and frozen chicken is the way to go. Don't buy food that's more than $2/lb. Look for sales, and buy seasonal fruits/veggies. Get store brand and/or shop at a local Aldi/Publix/other-cheap-grocery-chain. Beans, lentils, and brown rice are generally pretty cheap per-meal.

Since changing my lifestyle and eating healthy, my weekly grocery expenses went from $60/week to $20/week. It really is cheaper.

I understand you still have a little denial because many people are in that stage but trust me, you can do it! It will be hard but it's best not just for your appearance. You will just feel better and your quality of life will improve.

Here's some tips.
>https://cookbooks.leannebrown.com/good-and-cheap dot PDF
This book is fucking amazing
>fruits and nuts
Nuts are expensive sadly, try to buy those from farmers market if one is close by. If not, there are many other healthy fats and proteins. Instead of pasta, eat beans, lentils, whole grains and starchy vegetables such as potato, carrot. If you still want noodles (they are yummy) limit your portion: instead of 2 cups noodle do 1 or 2/3 cups and eat a vegetable also.

>frozen meatballs
Thankfully every frozen food is cheap. Meatballs are kinda bad though, go for vegetable and fruit, plus frozen chicken, chicken or turkey meatballs, vegetarian meatballs (made of rice or some other starch plus tofu. Make these yourself because otherwise it's gonna be expensive)

>snacking, blood sugar
Look at some tips for type 1 diabetics. Don't eat any sugar free foods but try to carry good snacks. The best cheapest snacks are the ones you make at home and put in a container or bag, not the ones you buy packaged in the store, if you always have snacks around your mental state will adjust so you won't feel pressure to eat them just because you have them. I like apples with peanut butter, banana and honey and seeds, potato with small tab of butter, spinach rolls (roll tasty foods in spinach such as meat, fish roe)

Same here. Use your favorite seasonings and explore new ones. If you are lucky to have a spice shop, go and smell them all. Spices are semi expensive but they last forever unless you're snorting them. You can also buy spice plants such as basil, oregano, etc from local markets for extremely cheap!

Also, identify your top 20 favorite fruits and vegetables and identify when they are in season.

Usually bags of stuff like fresh spinach or other dark, leafy greens are $2-3. You can buy chicken and boil/slice/freeze it yourself. Get some baby salad tomatoes for $2 and some tasty low-fat dressing and combine everything for a good daily meal.

Honestly for $2 per meal you can also just buy some damn Lean Cuisines and be eating better than pasta and bacon. I will never understand the "eating healthy is a MYTH" people, it's not that hard unless you live in a food desert.

Here are some tips.
Farmers markets and other market like places can sell produce cheaper.
Know prices store to store and buy on sale
Eat veg. In season
Some veg. Can be literally grown in a pot in your house/apartment herbs too
If veg. Is on sale buy it and freeze the excess for later date.
Have a food party if you have time ( grab a few friends each cooks a dish for the amount of people joining, everyone brings containers and you have a few meals)
Make a few meals and freeze to have "instant meals" during the week.
Eat less meat and fish (either decrease in size and/frequency)
Buy dried before you buy canned ( dry beans are cheaper then canned) industrial canned foods are not that good for you.
Learn quick/cheap/easy dishes from other cultures
Learn how to can and pickle at home ( basics for canning are jar,vinegar, pot and hot water)
Bring your lunch and snack for the day with you.
Instead of buying juice , if you can afford a soda stream you can make syrup for your own soda that will have less sugar or even none. (Ex . Boil ginger,strain , add sugar,cook and then add
seltzer) , make tea or lemonade.
You can make your own granola brith oatmeal too!
Decrease your amount of starch but up your veg intake.
General portion control as well, including eating from smaller dishware . Teach your self to eat more slowly too.
If you have time join a community garden, not only people give you free stuff some times, many things can end up being cheaper.
Smaller shops sometimes discount produce if it looks ugly or if it is mid day and they have been there since the morning.
Explore other fruits and veg too. (Sometimes they can be cheaper)
Just doing a few of these thing helps... I'm not saying to do all but these are things I have done to cut costs at point or another.

Sucks that he lives far away from me.
I regret that I was sort of still hiding my power levels even at AX of all places.

My current goals are to go to has many events as I can in Cali (I can't leave work for more than a couple of sick day calls), cosplay, and be more open with my hobbies.

No, it is why I had a depression after AX and how I am trying to change myself now. I mean up until this point I have been fine with the "double life".

>social media

Dude, this is pretty easy to get around. Just make another email, use a seperate set of social media accounts and keep the two seperate.

- Install two browsers on your phone. If your phone can’t handle two browsers, buy a new, better phone with that professional salary of yours.
- Use one only for your work-related stuff — linked-in, facebook, whatever you’re on.
- Use the other to sign up a facebook, tumblr or whatever fan forums for your freaky animu self. You don’t have to upload any selfies for these, so I don’t know what you’re worried about. Go ahead, sperg out and interact with other nerds.
- To keep the two really seperate, sign up for another email. Yahoo mail is still up and running and pretty good. That way you never mistake one gmail for another and accidentally send emails from the wrong account, since the interface will be completely different.
- If you’re really paranoid, learn to hide your photos on your phone as well.

>cosplaying alone

If you join/check the forums of the cons (that you’re going to attend), you can generally find a lot of other people looking for chances to socialise. eg- the more popular groups will tend to have group photoshoots scheduled at a particular time, so you can show up for those and find other fans of the show that way.

Sometimes there are also people looking for cosplay groups, because a group of 5+ gokaiger sentais is always more impressive than one lone ranger, some characters from slice-of-life animus don’t look recogniseable unless they’re in a group with other characters, that kind of thing.

Be careful that you safeguard yourself, though. Best way for a cosplay group to fail is everyone except you flakes, so you end up being the one yellow voltron walking the halls that no one wants photos with. Worst way is when group members start drama and the group implodes. Room parties sound like a great way to make friends — until you want them to leave so you can get some sleep. And open room parties leave you open to being charged for supplying alcohol to minors. So go into things gently and slowly, and at least take precautions to cover your ass.

Things might suck for a while after trauma, even normal "fun" things can be ruined. Sometimes medication can help, or talking to a friend or confidant or even therapist can be really useful. If you don't feel like talking about it or just talking in general, which is understandable, at least take some time to practice self-care. Take long bubble baths or wear your favorite outfit or watch cheesy cartoons. Anything that makes you feel better, even as a temporary distraction, can be helpful. Trying new things out also helps. You mentioned you have a dog, maybe take it out for long walks in a place you've never been before? Learning a new skill or hobby, like knitting or drawing, can also help. I know this sounds cheesy, but these are all things that helped me get through my own personal trauma. Everyone's different, though. Most of all, please please do not harm yourself or try to kill yourself. If it ever gets that bad, there are hotlines you can look up. I don't know you, but I'm sure you can find reasons to keep living, even if it's just waiting for the mail to arrive or AP's new release. Good luck, anon. Hope you feel better.

Its probably not as bad as you think and you're suffering from having looked at it for too long. This happens to me every time I make a costume; I have the nice happy phase where everything looks lovely, and the closer the con gets the more I hate it. This usually reverses if I keep away from it for a while, or when I actually look at photos or rewear again at a later date without the stress of finishing hanging over me.This multiplies by tenfold if I'm making it for someone else.

Just breathe anon, even if its not perfect this time or even ready, you can either postpone the debut or keep fixing things up on it so you're more happy with it the next time you wear it.

Thank you for the advice!
Sorry about the late reply, I've been trying to keep myself busy every night so that I don't think about things too much and if I'm honest, I forgot about this thread.

I don't think I'm going to keep pursuing casual relationships because they just don't feel worthwhile to me. I've always liked the idea of being single for the freedom, so it seems kind of counter-intuitive to force myself to get into hookups.

In the meantime, I've managed to get out of my slog and started work on an old cosplay I had planned. Perhaps I'll have it ready for MCM London this year? Hopefully this motivation stays with me.
Feeling positive!

I know that feel, I'd selfpost progress but people would figure out who I am too easily as I have friends who lurk/shitpost.
Yeah I went to HJ. It was alright but I didnt have the same sort of excitement when I was actually there? Lots of clueless normies kept taking candids as well and couldnt take the hint when we said no. We had 5 sets of people in the space of ten minutes try it on so I ripped their heads off. But other than the usual things you didn't really miss much.

Hopefully things pick up for you soon though, and you're back to your old self.

It was the UK but the auction is ended now sadly, it ended. She was willing to ship to the rest of the EU but ebay is weird because if the seller doesn't have a method set to ship to your country you can't bid. I get why she didn't want to let the dress go for my lowball bc it was less than half of what she paid according to her, I'm just salty bc if I lived in the UK and was a dick I could've gotten away with that sweet sweet OP at the auction starting price, bc she'd relisted it twice and nobody else was bidding. Even now that it ended nobody bid. But I'd said like "hey I'd like to bid but ebay won't let me, can I put up my offer of X0.00 (the auction starting price basically) if nobody else bids?" and she was like "no sorry I'm just gonna keep it if it doesn't sell."

Tho only tangentially related I hate when sellers list stuff with a minimum bid price they're not actually willing to let the dress go for. Unless you have something good a bidding war is unlikely, put the actual minimum you want to sell it for at least.

Someone can be likeable and fun without being sexually attractive, but you wouldn't understand this as you apparently have zero standards.

I have always wanted to cosplay as cute little characters but I have never felt like I could because of my bust (E) and height (5'5"/165cm) And I just decided to cosplay as Kanna Kamui instead of Lucoa or Tohru, because Kanna is my favorite character.

I really hope I don't look awful. I am not fat, but I'm definitely not tiny like a little kid. (At least my face is pretty youthful?)

I live in Finland and here's what I did:
>learn determination and self control. seriously. you just have to learn it the hard way, just the way you hate it. The Hard Way. No easy outs on this one.
>count calories, eat less than 1800 a day if you're in my height range which is 160-170cm, otherwise a slightly bit more/less (adjust it yourself and keep changing the daily amount in a zig zag pattern to get the most zap and shake out of your metabolism)
>eat shit like makaroonilaatikko (??? think like home made good non greasy stuff what mom would make to keep you healthy and well fed idk how to call food like that in english) and school's salad meal every day, it's cheap as fuck trust me I'm a uni student
>ditch sodas, milks and juices for water, vichywater and tea (only sweeten tea with honey if have to)
>treat yourself once a month with something real fine and tasty, not mcdonalds bs or cheap shit
>light 45-90min excercise 1-2 times a week, plenty of youtube videos to show what do (I used the Victoria's Secret Angel workout videos, just search em up), no gym needed at all whatsoever
>walk from school/work to home, try to get at least a few km per day every day
>learn to eat tomato and cucumber instead of fazer chocolate
>no more excuses, seriously, git gud or gg, no other options

Kanna gets away with chubbo.

I think as long as you make sure the outfit fits you to scale and your face is cute, the height won't matter. Do photoshoots sitting or kneeling if you are next to other dragonmaid cosplayers to keep the illusion that you aren't tall

If you think it's appropriate, you could suggest using some boning for the bodice of her dress, and help her find a bra that will lift her bust, creating the illusion of a longer/ slimmer waist. If she's really overweight, instead of just having a naturally thick waist, a corset could help push some fat closer to her hips, where her skirt could hide it. I don't think shapewear would really help if she's a normal weight, because if that's the case her problem vould honestly just be caused by a large ribcage or short waist, which even losing weight won't help.

i've put off cosplaying for years and i'm too chickenshit to try it, especially alone. i have a few normie friends that support me but i wouldn't go to the lengths of having them come to a con with me while i cosplay and geek out on things they don't understand at all lol
