Not my account, found it recently, but this person posts dress details and figure some gulls might be interested.
Self-post. I make brooches and stuff with resin. @DreamCathedral
Self postJust started recently, first time using foam.Currently making a Rhaegar Targaryen cosplay, and then will move onto Edward Elric.Would appreciate some advice and to find others who do similar things to me.
>>9827341well shit, just realised I forgot to add this@FlyingGlacier
>>9827315Oh hey, that's my account! Thanks for posting me, I'm very happy people are enjoying my pics so far
>>9827366Np! It’s such a good idea and needs more followers!
Selfpost, come talk to me about idols!!
My personal. Trying to get back into posting more lolita-related stuff bc I took a break for a bit. @horribug
>>9827421You post every thread.
self post. I post a lot of tabletop stuff as well as cosplay protects. @rhys_cosplay
>>9827430Nice cosplays! Also, if it's ok to say so, you're very good looking and seem like a fun person.
>>9827336I WONT FOLLOW UNTIL YOU MAKE MORE BLOODBORNE BROOCHES
>>9827431thank you! I am sporadic with cosplay updates but I am trying my best to meet event deadlines
>>9827427I do! I’ve had some luck with making friends who also like idols, more so than in the friend finder threads, so why not?
>>9827456I don’t see why anon cares since selfpost is encouraged in this thread.
Hey there demons, it's ya girl...@help_me_hide_me>>9827432Commission her, you walnut!That's what I plan to do. What character do you want?
>>9827475Your feed is so aesthetically pleasing and you seem really cool and interesting. Followed!
>>9827432I have a couple ready to ship and planning to make big batches for an upcoming con. Also some blood vial rings. Just send me a pm about a custom order and I will toss in some free B-grade bloodborne brooches I have lying around.>>9827475Commissions make me happy. I just want to make the thing that goes perfectly with someone's coord. <3 Idon'tevenchargemuchforcustomfees.
>>9827477Thank you! I hope to sort out my camera quality and background this year so there's less Black Blobbism in my outfit posts...
>>9827336Omg, you're back? You dropped contact and I hadn't seen your posts around. Glad you're ok!
Self post I struggle with finding other gyaru lifestyle things to post since I don’t think my life is all that interesting Don’t really know what direction to take
>>9827683I just want to say.. I have been following you for a couple months and I think I have a crush on you.
>>9827336I love your stuff but please for the love of god fix the camera situation.
>>9827694I don’t think I’m crush-worthy, but thank you Anon!
>>9827672Was travelling and such for a few months! Apologies for that.>>9827697The sad thing was that I actually got one for christmas and left it in another country.
>>9827683Yay, love gal accounts.
>>9827427Come off it anon; clearly posting slutty selfies didn't get her followers, how else is she supposed to gain followers besides posting in every selfpost thread?
>>9827421>>9827427Honestly, I got mad respect for the fact that she can do that. I always see people here get roasted.
>>9827848>slutty selfiesExcuse you anon, those slutty pictures were taken professionally, thank you very much lmao
>>9828019ah yes, very professional picture
>>9828021Oh I thought you were talking about my other Tsubasa pics lol
>>9827425jw are you a salt monster too?
>>9827421>come talk to me about idols!!well yeah, I like to fap to a fewthat's all
>>9827421followed a few hours ago
>>9828021>selfie in a bikiniAh yes, so slutty.Seriously your standard for slutty makes you sound like a Mormon
I've been posting coordinates for a few weeks now. I have a total of 8 posts, but only 13 followers. I tag my posts as #eglcommunity, #lolitafashion, and #jfashion, among other things, so I don't know what, if anything, I'm doing wrong. Is this normal growth for an account? I was hoping I'd get to interact with others more.
>>98281058 posts isn't a lot, I probably wouldn't bother following someone unless they had like, at least a full page of photos. You want to be sure to post pretty often, like a few times a week if not every day. Those tags sounds about right, tag the brands you're wearing also! And be sure to interact with other people (in a genuine way, obviously, not just to get followers but I've made a lot of friends that way). But yes, for 8 posts 13 followers sounds completely normal.
>>9828123Thanks for the reassurance! If I only have time to dress up on weekends (my job is longer than 9-5), what should I post other than coord photos? I try to keep selfies to a minimum, so should I just have a stockpile of floordinates? What about art posts? I'm pretty new to social media, sorry if these are dumb questions.
>>9828130Nayrt but I greatly prefer people who post one good coord pic once a week over people who post selfies and unrelated stuff every day. If I see a post in a tag I follow that looks good but then see that their profile is a majority non-lolita I generally don’t follow. So it’s really up to you.
>>9828130I like to see coord details, so maybe you can take some good artsy shots of those for every coord you wear and post those mid week while awaiting the next coord?
>>9827456If thats really the reason why you post every single thread why don’t you interact with the other idolfags on insta instead?
>>9828105Try following other lolitas in the tag, they'll likely follow back if your style is similar. Follow your comm members as well.
>>9828184she doesn’t want to do any work, she wants to be approached, lmao
Self-posting.I do mostly Star Wars cosplay. Charity cosplay, too, i'm with the 501st legion.
>>9828184I really like 2d idols but I’m not into the whole net idol thing. Also, it seems like most people in the net idol thread, if they do like 2d idols, only like LL, which I’m not a big fan of. In general, it seems like people in the net idol thread just have a different set of interests.
>>9828184Whoops misunderstood lol; I interact with idol fans a lot by following all im@s related tags, so I’m not sure why you’d say “why don’t you interact with other people”
>>9828532They weren’t taking about 4chan.
Can people suggest good photography accounts pls
>>9828540Cosplay or Lolita? Man there's some salt in here, if any nice anons want to join a cosplay pod (where you comment on each others posts to help with interaction) drop your ig here or message me @knovicecosplay
>>9828535Because that’s not apparent from your desperate posting...insta has got to have limitless fans
>>9828548My dude I’m just tryna geek out with people about idols and like I said before, I’ve met people who also like im@s from these threads before lol it seems like you’re really concerned about this and I’m not sure why, have a great day
>>9828544>>9828544Only really looking for cosplayAdmittedly I don't really have much of an interest in lolita.
>>9828089>i-i'm not slutty!!!>post this kind of bskek
>>9828742I think she’s an annoying attentionwhore namefag too but I don’t think this is slutty or even an indication that she’s an attentionwhore. It’s colossalcon so naturally there are swim costumes.
>>9828512nice>>9828742well, at least she sounds fun
>>9828742I don't even like claudie and think she's an attentionwhore but you're being a little ridiculous here.
>>9828548>>9828742Good lord fuck off.
>>9828774look at the caption>>9828848>>9828846>>9828838nice samefag tho
>>9828856>nice samefag thocan I show you something?
>>9828742Most the world doesn't find bikinis, or pictures of them, slutty. You should move to Saudi Arabia or something...
>>9828742I found an instagram account for you, anon.Her hands aren't covered in all her pictures, so I hope it isn't too slutty for you.
>>9828856>>9828866well, I guess I show it to you anyway
>>9828856>>9828917Lemme show you too.
>>9828936thumbs up anon(also, next time make sure you close your other tabs)
>>9828936>>9828917>>9828907>>9828893>>9828866Nice edited caps, samefag.
>>9828952is this now an instagramm, or a bait/roast-thread?
Great thread guys.
>>9828960a samefag thread kek
Well I guess if the thread is already derailed no harm in selfposting lol>>9827366I love your account, I'm so obsessed with detail shots
Selfposting because y'all know I'm a gull anyway. Also anyone know any good indie classic brands to follow?>>9829085one day we'll be free from this evil
>>9829088lotvdesigns is my personal fave.
>>9829085i love you voldie
>>9829085desu it's so easy to use you to derail the thread but you seem pretty chill
>>9828856>boohoo no one else on this board conforms to my Mormon ideals
>>9829367>being this salty you got called out for samefagging
>>9829088Not into Lolita but I'm really digging your profile! Have you ever considered taking photos of the back of the dress too? At least for cords with cute bows/details on the other side?
>>9829085isn't selfposting allowed?
>>9829387Not if you’re me or voldie, everyone else is ok lol
>>9829850No pls don't light the fire again it was just starting to calm down
>>9829850>not if you're an annoying trip, everyone else is ok lolftfy
selfposting too this thread is hell>>9829088we never will be free
>>9829387of coursejust watch out for angry gullsthey always want to fight and nitpick
>>9829915>>9829966 Just ignore her. She's just desperate for attention since she's taken the dive and started posting bikini pics and still doesn't have followers. Now she's just trying to get them through drama
>>9830045It's so sad when thots have to resign themselves to cgl of all places to beg for followers.
Just been trying to browse #handmadelolita and #lolitasewing on IG and it's saying "page not found". Have those tags been banned?
any updated guide/tips for hashtags and just effective tagging in general?
>>9827425I love your use of redxblack!
>>9829085I hope your no bangs trend takes off
>>9830863Ty! It’s my favorite color combo to wear.
>>98308325-7 tags is the way to go
>>9829312>>9829341Thanks anons, I've def chilled out over the years lol>>9829967>>9829088sup cuties>>9830872I'm loving it desu, I know people here say it makes me look balding but it's so low maintenance and it's been really good for my skin. I'm seeing a lot of my lolita friends join the no bangs team lately too
>>9830798I have the same problem with other lolita and brand tags.
>>9830798I just checked and was able to access no problem. Does instagram have a function similar to tumblr with "safesearch" where ~naughty~ terms like lolita won't show unless you go in your settings?
>gaining followers>the amount of likes I'm getting is still the same, or less even, as when I had 200 or so less followers >Still sub 1k followers
Is it hard to get followers when you’re just jfash and not lolita or do I just suck/ am ugly? I’m only ~250 and a good chunk of them are irl friends and acquaintances.
>>9831119why are grills so mean to each other
>>9831119>Having nearly 250 acquaintances and/or friends
>>9831119I usually only follow people I know from real life, people from a group I'm in, artists I enjoy, or shops. For the most part, I only follow strangers who wear clothing that I could see myself rocking. It has nothing to do with people being a bad or good dresser. You could be an excellent dresser, but I wouldn't follow if it's in a style I couldn't draw personal inspiration from. I do love browsing the tags though and giving hearts to outfits and images I like otherwise. I'll always like to awesome room pictures, outfits, and cats. Chances are if I've liked one of your things, I'll pop back in at some point in the future.
>>9831209I'll dump some in a minute once my computer stops throwing a fit. Any particular region or are all good?
>>9831217Much appreciated, thanks anon and good luck with the computer! Any region is good, I just wanna check out some good photographers to use as a reference for what good cosplay photography looks like
>>9828866>somebody disagrees with my absurdly prudish opinions>must be samefagging I win the argument uwuHilarious
How necessary are themes to a cosplay account? How do you balance them with WIP images?
>>9829967>>9829088>>9829085The gang's all here so may as well selfpost too lmao. Check me out for mediocre cosplay (+ progress pics in story posts) or equally mediocre coords and detail shots>>9831227No guarantee of objective quality bc I'm just a cosplayer, not an experienced photog but a bunch I follow are:@flauntymars@moondust_photos@kamerapeople@rosespirits@sohnophotos@cassiehphotography@vitalz_coztography@veronicascallionphoto@nigelmurrayphotography@martieb_photo@solitadphoto@conmomphotography@renteiphotography@dream_land_photography89
>>9831103>>9831119What do you need followers and likes for?
>>9831322It's kind of like a fun collecting hobby to me at this point if that makes sense?
>>9831263They arent necessary, but I really like them.I recently started a fresh with a new cosplay specific account and now have a strict posting style. Each row of 3 is of the same cosplay. I start by posting a photoshoot set (1-3photos), followed by the WIP shots put into a collage, then finally a selfie of me in that cosplay. I have 6 years of backlog to post which I use as filler rows between new projects. So people can keep up to date with what I'm working on as it happens, I post the new WIP on my story. Which then eventually gets posted as part of a collage once I have everything to post the project row on my account.When there's a convention coming up I use the "selfie" column to post my line up. Then share a mirror shot & selfie of the cosplay I'm wearing on the day of the con once I'm ready.Just to note if you wish to do something similar though. I really wish I'd done it in the reverse order. Selfie, WIP, Shoot. But I'm determined to keep this up so don't want to change it around now.
>>9831313why the fuck do all you retards feel the need to state that you're self posting in a very obvious self post thread.
>>9831263For an alternate opinion, I can't stand accounts like >>9831445 (you do you if you like it, just not my taste!) or any strong themeing because if how artificial/sterile it feels and how samey it can start looking on my feed. The again, one man's cold and sterile is another man's satisfyingly organized. To keep my account looking cohesive despite a lot of different diverse cosplays, I use similar angles, framing, and saturation/lighting levels to the best of my ability, so it looks like an intentionally curated feed even if all jumbled. I also really only care about seeing high quality or professional shoots of other cosplayers, so that's all I post on my account. Selfies are reserved for stories, and wips may be put on their own pinned highlight wheels but never posted.
>>9831452Why do you care?
>>9831322Personally because I work freelance from home and my internship wouldn’t allow jfash so SOMEONE has to see my outfits. Is it mentally sad? Probably. Does it make me happy in the last few years I have left in the styles I like? Definitely
>>9831180Honestly a LARGE chunk of it is annoying guys I never talked to in high school, possibly dead accounts from high school, and people who are in my same student organization. And a couple of illiterate betafag NICE COSPLAY types from the mistake of linking my Tinder.
>>9827366really liking this account so far! Just a heads up though, I feel like the "Today I'm posting" captions on each and every one are gonna start getting annoying/grating pretty quickly though
>>9831463Because everyone is acting like it's something they can only do because every one else is doing it and it's something special. lmao. how annoying, just post and move on.
>>9831584You're bitching about nothing. Get off your period, for crying out loud.
>>9830963>just got my bangs cutreeeEEEEEEE
>>9831687who cares. don't let a fat bitch like voldie determine how you should wear your hair
>>9831620anon is bitching about people being annoying by making a huge deal about self posting in a self posting thread. just post.
>>9831709>making a huge deal about self posting....the only one making a huge deal is you anon(s?), how is saying "may as well selfpost too" here any diff than someone saying "may as well post my haul too" in a taobao or mail thread? Do you get mad about people captioning their instagram posts too? God forbid someone write "haven't posted any of X character in a while, so here!" because that's just making a big deal about posting that character when it's already obvious, right? Get over yourself.
>>9831709>just postbecause that's been going so well lmaohey anyone else want to sign up to get bitched at over innocuous things?
>>9830942whoa, any reason why? i’ve been tagging up to 30 tags full.
>>9831855If you use more it lowers your reach. I don't remember when that change was made to the algorithm but it exists
>>9831477Annoying people from high school finding my Jfash insta is literally a nightmare of mine, not so much because I’m ashamed but because they’re the types to save pictures and post them elsewhere to mock them. Do they ever comment on your pics?
>>9831878Oh I’m talking about the trailer park guys who like everything by a girl under 150 pounds or the nerds who keep up with me simply because I’m a nerd who was nice to them six years ago. My highschool was very small and very rural so lots of classmates never met many new people post graduation. I know I look and dress way better now than then so even if someone posted me to mock me I wouldn’t give a shit, it’s better than me talking with the friends I do still keep about how massive or drugged out other alumni became lel
>>9831870oh duck.. thank
@evilsasha.artIf you're cool with people with disabilities, I wear lolita and dabble in cosplay and SFX makeup.>inb4 gurl u uglyI know, don't bother
>>9828952Imagine being this buttblasted about a bikini pic
>>9833596imagine that anon going to the beach, bet he never did otherwise his head would have expoded
>>9833596>>9834915Imaging being this salty about being called out for being a thot that you have to reply half a week later
>>9831757ExactlyThe bickering ITT over a girl posting bikini pics is so fucking embarrassing.
>>9834961Yea, if you're a thot, you're a thot; no point in samefagging in a thread to defend yourself.
selfpostim trying to get bigger (I know my costumes aren’t that good I’m learning to get better)
>>9835009youd have more success if you posted actual content instead of screenshotted memes and collages
>>9835032yeah ive been dry on content besides that shit since ive been low on money with college and car paymentsbut i totally see where you’re coming from, ill try to keep that stuff on the low
>>9834978Yo. Dude. This ain't /r9k/ or /pol/. Ain't no thot patrol here. Even if there were, it wouldn't be over bikini pictures.
has anyone here ever had luck contacting a girl on instagram?there's this cute cosplayer from my city and I want to get to know here but don't know if i should bother even trying
>>9835255Most people don't care to be contacted by strangers. But if you don't send a dick pick and act like a normal person you might chat for a lil bit and then she'll forget about you.
>>9835255Personally speaking, I don't respond to people via DM who I don't actually know beforehand through a community or in real life. Also, chances are you aren't the first person who has tried to "get to know her" through a DM. Do you like it when people cold call you? Messaging a stranger is about the same concept. You should just follow her page if you actually like her images, and hope you get the chance to meet her in real life. It's usually okay to DM people after you've met them once or twice.
>>9835009Why do you want to get bigger?
>>9835255I don’t respond to “hi i’m your fan// you’re cute” dms, but engaging with genuine comments and replying to stories is a good way to make fast instagram friends without cold calling. Just don’t be a creep p mu
@cakepopclara back with a nice icy self post for yall. Spicy casual coords and cerebral sweet coord goodness. Hairs a mess, taking cut + color suggestions! I try my best to improve every day so let's just be our cutest together o k
>>9835230Cry harder thot
>>9835311it’s gay as shit but i just wanna meet more people and be recognized when i go to cons
>>9835539Who'd you miss a call from?
>>9827432Will you follow me now, anon?
>>9839276Plot twist: I've been following you this since you posted in the last etsy threar because I love supporting quality indie brands but didn't want you to possibly find out who I was.
>>9839351>qualityWell, thank you, anon. And fug. I got a handful of followers since then. It is a mystery I will never solve.
Do you guys follow accounts less if they post general life stuff that isn't the same as the accounts aesthetics? Just trying to work out if its worth making a fashion/makeup only account
>>9839463Yep, I don't want to see life shit.
>>9839463Just keep life stuff in your stories. If you really like what happened you can showcase it in your highlights.
>>9839463Some anon always comes along and says 'yes I love life stuff' but honestly, I tried to do life stuff on my instagram but it just didn't work out. People would much rather see a curated Instagram than a 'spontaneous' one despite what they say. If you want followers, curate that shit, create a theme, and don't do random life stuff.
I keep seeing people post "hey look I have a new post pls like it" in their stories.Should I start doing this? I only have 600 or so followers right now.
>>9839717It's best to do that since insta algorithms are all fucky but posting it on your story could make someone who didn't see the post see it
>>9827063SelfpostI make flower crowns and plan to make lolita headbands and animal headbands eventually as I get better. I like to focus on fantasy creations and hope to run a business oneday so it would mean a lot if people could give me constructive criticism/advice/challenges of what to make. https://www.instagram.com/airyfairycraft/
>>9834932Imagine being so salty over thinking that someone someone else is salty that you pull this shit
Why does he post so many pictures of the same shitty costume? He's practically a spam account imo
>>9843170>still being salty enough to reply a week laterkek, thots get so triggered
>>9843492Regardless the first anon that thought a god damned bikini was slutty was being a filthy sperg
>>9843509Her entire feed is pretty slutty regardless of whether or not you think a bikini is slutty though
>>9829085Aaaaaah, thank you so much! To be honest, I notice when you like my posts and smile every time. I'm jelly of your IW collection and I enjoy how consistent your outfits are!>>9831566That's a good point and something I've been worrying about. Thanks for letting me know, any ideas how I can change things up to avoid that?
How do you get famous at cosplay on/off without being a thot? I’m aware this isn’t the questions thread, just curious.
>>9844161I meant to say *on/off of IG. I should sleep.
>>9844161Actually be good at making things, post good tutorials, win some competitions, etc.For anything on social media, to get famous, you have to post consistently. It's not enough to post good things erratically.
>>9827421I think your cosplay look great! Ignore the hate; great work m'lady
>>9844179NAYRT, but I'm just starting out in cosplay and since I've not got other costumes to repost like I see a lot of cosplayers do, any suggestions on what to post in between WIPS would be appreciated.
>>9827430Nice cosplays, dude>>9827683gosh you're cute af>>9828021>>9828742>>9828856>>9828952>>9834932>bikinis are sluttythis is autism>>9827421ignore the haters, go have fun mah grill
>>9845385A lot of people seem to take a ton of photos when they do makeup tests/costests as well as during photoshoots with friends. That way they always have something to post.
>>9827425Completely random, but I think I drew your friend (in the middle pic with the drinks) in the draw thread! Smol world.
>>9839463Some life stuff is fine, especially if it revolves around the content, such as mentioning you are going to a con.>>9839717why do people do this? kinda annoying.
>>9843355Because it's a good costume and he posts multiple anglesjesus christ stop being so judgemental
why do people do this? I really can't imagine it promotes the image that much and just makes them look fucking desperate
>>9847664Honestly couldn’t even tell what this cosplay was for almost s whole two minutes.
>>9827425God damn, that's an adorable black dress.
>>9847664They hope the page will notice and share their picture
>>9827425>took a break for a bitStarting drama with MD sure did backfire, huh?
Horny guy here, I followed all of your accounts for testosterone and inspiration when I want motivation to fucking make it
>>9848110deets, this sounds hilarious
>>9831943You seem kinda harsh
>>9835294>Do you like it when people cold call you?yes because I'm lonely
>>9848110Is MD the gothic lolita with the veils?
My posts aren't appearing in the tag feeds.Any one got any solutions? I'm not using banned tags since posts by other users are appearing, and my account isn't on private.
>>9848461maybe you are using too many tags
>>9848486I always use under 10.
>>9848295>OP posts a long tumblr rant claiming MD attacked her for copying one of her coords>also claims that MD sends broken jewelry to people she doesn't like>claims it wasn't to start drama, but posts it here and also puts MD's username in the tag portion of the tumblr post>anons from /cgl/ ask for proof because no shit MD is pretty popular for her coords>OP backs out with "i dont want drama because i really admire MD i just wanted to rant uwu">anons keep pestering for proof via tumblr anons>OP caves in and posts PMs from FB>nothing incriminating just gossip between her and some other rando who doesn't seem to like MD>MD doesn't seem to be the bad guy OP made her out to be>OP gets completely brushed off and somewhat discredited>OP goes on "break from lolita"Now I think the idea of copying someone's coord is kind of dumb since it's just clothes, but MD has a distinct style and OP's coord was almost an exact cut and paste of one of her more popular coords. >>9848370I would say that's what started the drama so sure.
>>9848488I think 7 is the magic number now but I could be wrong
>>9843355Is that costume supposed to be Terrorblade or something?
>>9848461>>9848486>>9848614Nah I've had that happen to me too before and I used fairly few tags too. My suspicion about why I was temporarily shadowbanned was because I don't post a lot normally, but that weekend I was at a con and went through several cosplay/coord changes per day and that majorly boosted my activity. I just waited a few days and I got un-shadowbanned.
>>9829088Hey there you pretentious fucking cunt.
>>9848110My break was unrelated to any of the drama and had to do with some personal health issues, but whatever helps you feel better about yourself.
Self post, slowly getting back into gyaru and j-fashion~
>>9849129Your hair is so fucking fried. Please invest some money into hair treatments. It'll make you look so much better.
is the entire ‘post under 7 hashtags’ an actual thing or does it really just differ for everyone?
>>9848993Salt, delicious saltIdk who you are, but you look fat and ugly despite ani apparently malicious and self victimising personality
>>9849493No I don’t lol. Projecting perhaps?Also >>9848546 should learn to do some research before spreading misinformation. They got a couple things wrong. I never said MD would ship out broken items to people she didn’t like. I said I thought she might pull something like that on me personally. I wasn’t the one who posted my link here. I did post it to my FB and I’m 90% sure of the person who brought it to /cgl/. I can’t fault anon for this one, but the “rando” IMs were from two lolitas who are well-known online. Obviously I protected their identities, but I do wonder how people would feel about MD if they knew who those two people were and what they felt. I wasn’t discredited anywhere expect maybe on here and MDs sob story post. My break was due to finding out I have colitis. My friends would be the only ones to know that though, but trust me. It’s hard to dress cute when you’re going through intestinal pain every day. I’m not one of those people who is good at pushing through that. Luckily my friends convinced me to stay in the fashion. Anyway. Enjoy your drama.
>>9849500Okay darling, keep believing that, but last time I checked I was heterosexual and wouldn't touch your insta with a ten foot pole.
>>9849506Wow the way you feel really makes me so depressed. Man. What will I do with my life now. If I didn’t like how I look that *might* get to me. Try someone else, darling.
>>9849500>I never said MD would ship out broken items to people she didn’t like. I said I thought she might pull something like that on me personally.That's even worse. You were being a bitter bitch about it and instead of moving on you tried to hint that she may ruin your purchased merchandise, which would ruin her own reputation.>I wasn’t the one who posted my link hereSure you didn't and Mana isn't an iconic figure for gothic lolitas. >two lolitas who are well-known onlineYeah right. No one has any reason to believe you considering what a liar you were the first time this drama happened. >I wasn’t discredited anywhere expect maybe on here and MDs sob story post.It wasn't even a sob story. Sorry getting noticed by your senpai didn't work out the way you wanted it to, but give up no one is going to side with you or turn against MD unless you give real solid proof. Good luck with your colitis though, I hope you're able to find some solution or medicine for it. I do see that you deleted your original call out post though. Interesting, but I still have screenshots of the messages you posted. >>9849506That's so irrelevant to this. Fucking hell man fuck off if you're just going to insult someone's personal appearance.
>>9849534Oh yeah I did delete the original (well, privatized it and the questions related). I figured people still have it. And at this point if people don’t believe me it’s whatever. This was a while ago now and I just dislike the misinformation that was posted. Btw, thank you for not being a shit. Like I really do appreciate the concern and your reply to >>9849506. After a certain age that kind of insult is like the absolute bottom of the barrel and is just kind of ridiculous, even given where we are. I’d honestly rather people confront me directly about their thoughts on the entire thing, and even though it might not seem that way, this shit is in the past. I’m surprised someone even brought it up again.
>>9849506Fuck off faggot, she looks good.
>>9832091That pic in bottom middle reminds me of Ms. Doubtfire but in a good way. I love Robin Williams
Just starting a cosplay Instagram because I don’t want my normie friends to see what a nerd I am. Any tips on how to make friends with other cosplayers/get into the community? I feel weird just posting pictures of me in my cosplay so I’d assume I should do some cosplay, some progress, some hobby stuff? Idk help a newfag out.
Self-post. I dress in lolita style mosly.@himeladyai
>>9849685Post it. Do it.
>>9827421Those bikini shots are really cute
>>9849829I’m not ready to let my poor fledgling instagram be bullied. Let it mature a bit before it is pummeled into the ground. :’^)
>>9849685Just try to follow other cosplayers and they will most likekly follow you back, maybe pm them and have a good talk, its not that hard if you are on Instagram
>>9850030I want to love you and your pictures, don't be a pussy! I MUST SPREAD POSITIVITY, DON'T DENY ME THAT
>>9831757>hey anyone else want to sign up to get bitched at over innocuous things?Honestly, shit is embarrassing even for this board. Get it together gulls
How do people get from 1k to 10k? I feel like you only start snowballing from 10k but it's taken a year to get to 1.5k and people say after 1k it's "easy". My photos are fairly high quality and I'm not unattractive. I cosplay both female and male characters though.
>>9850521part of it is luck. are your cosplays lacking in something?
>>9850509Good thing that all ended two weeks ago
>>9850617>implying others aren't doing the same in other threadsgood ol' /cgl/
>>9831477>>9831943you cant have this attitude if youre ugly
>>9839463I’m okay with seeing different stuff once in a while, but if you’re posting different stuff ALL THE TIME then you should probably just make a separate account for it
>>9835009you'd prolly get more followers if you didn't act romantically entitled to every female coworker of yours :^)
>>9850030I’m seconding >>9850043Just post it
>>9852630Not really that interesting, just that he tries to get with girls who have bfs because he legit thinks he's better than them. Wouldn't be as much of a deal if he didn't do this shit multiple times and try and invite them out on dates where only he knows it's a date.
Why do so many cosplayers buy followers? I get that they want to seem popular, but when you have 30k+ followers and only get 200 likes per photo, it’s pretty obvious that you bought them.And I feel like I’ve been seeing this sort of thing more and more frequently. It’s usually more like people buying 1-2k rather than 30k, but still it just seems like something that I’m seeing everywhere.What do you gulls think?
this is the first thread ive ever visited on this board and by mohammads glorious name its filled to the brim of roastiesso what do you stacys talk about besides makeup and bitch insults to one another? like i presume cosplay but for a board orientated towards that its not as full as id expect
HiI run an account where I take pics from my Keras/GLB. I try to keep it old school but I also have a lot of 2010s issues so that makes it in there too. Plz ignore my YouTube vid posts for now. They're terrible and I'm trying to get better
>tfw you make a separate Instagram for cosplay to hide from your normie friends and Instagram immediately starts suggesting all the accounts of your Facebook friends despite never having linked itFuck it seems like I’ll have to delete it now, why must Facebook do this to me.
>>9853305Ngl I look down on cosplayers who obviously use bots or buy followers/likes. It doesn't matter how amazing their costumes are or how many awards they won, as long as they do either of those things, I automatically dislike them.That being said, I do have friends who have a disproportionately small following in comparison to their likes (like 80-100 likes on each photo but only 300-600 followers) but their likes and comments all come from real accounts.
>>9853523>That being said, I do have friends who have a disproportionately small following in comparison to their likes (like 80-100 likes on each photo but only 300-600 followers) but their likes and comments all come from real accounts.How the fuck does this even happen?Some of these accounts don't even have good content
>>9853523>>9853666>80-100 likes on each photo but only 300-600 followersDo they use hashtags?Do they have any niche or flavor of the month cosplays?I don’t think that’s disproportionate. I have a baby account that’s under 200 followers and my photos get between 40-70 likes.
>>9853685Admittedly I didn't look at the numbers in that post, but I was thinking moreso the accounts with 500 or so followers with 250+ likes per picture
There's this cheap online shop that keeps commenting and/or liking my pics randomly every day on Insta and it's annoying as hell to receive notifications only to notice it's them again. Does this happen to you anons as well? Do you ever feel tempted to block them?
>>9853305I almost have not followers but seeing even a new real follower make me happy. Sometime you have to be happy with what you can have.>>9853851They never follow me like that, that creepy, they only follow me or like my stuff and it annoy me enough . When it's insta hoes( I have no idea how to say it politely ) who post sexy pic who follow me I just block them
>>9853851yeah it's always the damn virgin hair shops that follow me for some reason; the constant following and unfollowing because of these accounts annoys me sometimes just because I'll think I'm approaching a follower milestone and then all those spam accounts will unfollow or delete and I'll see it drop again and feel bad, but otherwise I dont really care. Really all it means is I'm a couple more likes likely to appear on the feeds of people I actually care about so it's not too big of a deal, personally.
>>9853523>>9853666At 200 followers I was getting at least 100-150 likes per photo (even selfies and less popular series), so I think it just depends on the kind of followers you have and hashtag usage. A lot of my followers at the beginning were cosplay friends who more readily interacted with my content. At 400 I got 150-350, which might’ve been from getting on the discover page or something.>>9854196I just block the virgin hair shops / other spam accounts as soon as they follow.
Can people tell if you’ve blocked them? There’s this creepy middle aged, kind of unhinged looking guy who likes and comments on all my lolita posts and I want it to stop, but he lives in my area and apparently even runs in some of the same social circles and I don’t want to piss him off.
>>9854331It just looks like your account doesn’t exist anymore if they search for it. The only way they’d know is if they see your account still exists on the desktop version or through a side account. (I wish blocking also got rid of connected accounts but it doesn’t, unfortunately)
>>9854352They can also still view your stories I think, make sure you click "cannot view stories."
>>9827430GOD damn u are attractive- let me guess, gay or taken?
I've found some good accounts to follow from these threads.
>>9827315In the same line of interest, I found this insta that just posts vintage lace and pretty things.https://www.instagram.com/sheelinlace/
>>9828742So...how fat are you? Obese? Morbidly obese? Gtfo with your personal vendetta. She’s clearly an attention whore and damn are you ever giving it to her. Nice job.
>>9853666It’s the Instagram algorithm, the more followers you have, the less they show your post to. If it doesn’t immediately get a bunch of comments and likes within 10 minutes of posting, they won’t serve it up to most of your followers.
>>9854761>i-i'm not a thot!!! y-you're FAT!!!!kek, that's some projection you have going
>>9854556thank you for the complement but yes I'm taken. I appreciate any support of my cosplay and other stuff i post on my IG
>>9855003NAYRT, but you see that's strange...because I have a few thousand followers and I have some posts that will break a thousand likes and I have some that won't even break 100. I post around the same time per day, and those with 1000+ likes seem to only get likes that trickle in over the course of about 4 days or so. And often, those with at least 500 will be likes from accounts that don't even follow me (stores that want me to follow them, and the like). It really has me wondering how many of my actual followers ever see my content (and I'm sure this is information I could probably have if I switched to a business account but....fuck that).
>>9855040Also forgot to mention that my content is really consistent, which stumps me even more on the inconsistency in engagement. I don't post food photos/random normie selfies/overly-filtered or low-quality photos either.
>>9855040Some of your posts are probably getting enough engagement to land them on the explore page, resulting in lots of likes from people who don't follow you. The algorithm is mostly a mystery and I've heard a lot of complaints from people lately that their likes are very inconsistent even if their content is.
>>9828742butterface and no tits why am i not surprised
>>9827598I am very excited for this!
>>9855003Wow, that explains all the inane questions all the efame thirsty lolitas post.>do u like desserts>tehe i have anxiety do u?> wat u watch rite now?It seems so forced and unnatural. Ah well, what can I say, I barely broke 1000 followers, and they're at 11,000.
>tfw no Voldie gf
>>9854601Thart is good looking group of people.
>>9861436I'm glad I'm not the only one eye-rolling at certain lolitas' new captions.
>>9861828"Please answer this arbitrary question that I honestly don't care the answer to"
>>9861824Not hard when they’re all dressed to model for btssb/aatp
Please give me some nice lolita accounts to follow, need sweet/classic inspo!
>>9862028Those aren't even the fashion show outfits.
>>9854477for your sake, don't ever post on here again. you will get eaten alive.
I know people hate Zekia, but how on earth did she get from like 5k in 2016 to nearly 200k now? Even with the shoop and only sticking to popular characters, there must have been a way that she promoted herself to gain traction. >from a desperate anon wanting to go from 1.5k to 2k and to maybe 5k/10k
>>9862144she tags her photos with stuff like #asian and #asiangirl.
>>9862144>I know people hate ZekiaNo they don't anon, it's like two anons with a vendetta.You can ask the same question about any instafamous cosplayer though; she's cute, does decent cosplays, and has luck. Anyone who makes it big is lucky, there's no specific way for you to work the algorithm>>9862150No she doesn't, you can look at all her photos and she only tags with the cosplay series and character name, plus cosplay.
>>9862144She's panders to the folks who like qt petite Asians and self promos everywhere, probably uses buys a few followers now and then. You gotta hustle.
>>9862156>pandersHow so? I don't see her doing any lewds or revealing cosplays.>buying followersBut her statistics are consistent with the amount of followers she has. If she bought followers her like to follower ratio would be lower, but her engagement rate is almost 10%.>self promos everywhereShe hasn't done any s4s as far as I've seen, hasn't tagged any people in her photos besides photographers, and doesn't spam follow people. How is she self promoing? I actually want to know how to grow an account; please don't post vendetta under the guise of advice. She doesn't seem to use any of the techniques people give in these types of threads or in that cosplay marketing group, so how? She doesn't even use those annoying question captions to make people engage more with her photos. Like I get that she's pretty but there's tons of good looking cosplayers that don't get popular.
>>9862152>No she doesn't, you can look at all her photos and she only tags with the cosplay series and character name, plus cosplay.yes she does, anon. look at her posts again.>>9862161>How so? I don't see her doing any lewds or revealing cosplays.Have you never heard of lolicons?
>>9862161>>9862144This >>9862152 She’s lucky. If you’re decently attractive and lucky enough for the algorithm to work in your favor, you’re set. That’s why I said in a previous thread that the advice in Cosplay Marketing is useless. There’s no magical loophole or strategy to game the system.
>>9862165Okay, after looking at her posts, she's tagged 9/296 posts with that. But the posts with those tags are from when she already had 150k+ followers, so I doubt it's the source of her followers.She doesn't do loli cosplays either though? And lolicon cosplayers are still lewd or revealing, look at @rocksylight for example.
>>9862144One thing she does is sometimes cosplay the flavor of the month, and although she doesn’t do that often that is one thing that will give you reach. Cosplaying popular characters of the season. She also has a lot of interesting and or unique looks that I notice other popular cosplayers mimic. and yes, she’s hella tiny and people love that cute small look
>>9862161>engagement rate is almost 10%Going off on a tangent here, but is that a good benchmark for ppl with 100k+ followers or just in general? It seems really low.
>>9862186That's really good for someone with 100k+. The more followers you have, the less engagement you have.
>>9862190My b, I deleted my post. I decided to Google it and found some articles with a similar breakdown. Honestly it's a bit validating to see I'm doing well!
>>9862172Did you really go through all of this chick's posts to look at her tags? That's pathetic.
>>9862272Are you that upset about being wrong?
>>9862272Are you that upset about being wrong?All the posts with those tags are in a row and fairly recent too, so it’s easy to see when she started using the tags and stopped using them.
>>9849547I’m so sorry you got caught in MDs web of crazy with her white knighting friends who lurk here.
>>9853377Ew please stop desperately grabbing for attention...
OP here, didn't expect some legit answers so thanks.>>9862152Whoops, my bad. Didn't want to get accused of bringing her up or anything because I've been genuinely curious for a while. But I must say there are plenty of reasonably cute cosplayers who have maybe 5k followers at the moment. >>9862161This is my issue too, but to be fair she could have done that earlier on before eyes were on her. >>9862173Sorry for being difficult, but I swear nearly everyone cosplays whatever is flavor of the month, and plenty are cute. I think it might also be a matter of timing. Could you elaborate with the unique look though?
>>9835539Here is a suggestion:LEAVE
>>9835539fuck off claire
>>9862646>>9862786What’d she do to you?
>>9862805Are you new?
>>9862807>knowing a literal nobody with less than 1k followersnot everyone has the same vendettas as you sweetie
>>9862812>vendettaI haven't even posted in this thread before now.She's been discussed to death in at least 5 different threads in the past 2 weeks alone.
>>9862814sure you haven't.no one gives a shit about your vendetta, but at least explain it if you're going to act like a nobody is worth shitting on
>>9862816it's the idiot with the d.walkure dramz
>>9853505is there any way to prevent this? legit concern.
>>9862820the one who wore a full set and people lost their minds about it?not sure why'd you expect anyone to recognize her
>>9862835No, someone wore a full set and people in RC:U started bitching about it. Claire launched on this SJW tirade (she's the cringe-chan with the BLM tattoo). The mods ended up locking the post for unrelated reasons, and Claire whined to the mod in PMs, and then whined in RC about "unprofessional mods" when the mod told her to fuck off. Claire and mod are both annoying, but at least the mod isn't using some SJW agenda to insert herself into every drama ever.
>>9862836Claire also bitched at a European lolita with a gun prop for not being sensitive to USA issues, which was hilarious.
>>9862646>>9862786Dude Claire's annoying but that post is almost a month old. I seriously doubt anyone cares that much about her to seek out old ass posts and post "fuck off claire" so I think it's more likely at this point that she's responding to herself, either to drum up sympathy (oh these anons just won't quit harassing poor claire!!) or just to keep the spotlight on herself a bit longer. It wouldn't be a new behavior for her (oh no people are being mean on amino!!)Claire, you seriously have a problem. Please seek help with managing your internet addiction.
>>9839717I hate this. I've noticed some of my friends doing it and I'm like ...gurl no
>>9835539>tfw fucking Claire has more followers than me>time to kms
>>9862941Don't feel bad about it anon. She's constantly following new people to force herself into peoples' inboxes, that's how she's getting followers. She also unfollows anyone who doesn't follow her back. It's an old tactic but it's at least somewhat effective, though it definitely outs you as a famewhore.
>>9828742I thought 4chan was banned in Dubai
>>9829088jesus your ratios are amazing
>>9862973>being this salty that someone called you a thotjeeze, you think you'd stop being offended after a month
>>9831103As someone who went from stuck at 8 to 1.5K and rising, post popular, post often, post on character birthdays
>>9862824I don't know. What I've done is stop using facebook on my phone and linked a fake facebook to my instagram. Since then I haven't seen my real friends pop up.If anyone else has any tips it would be appreciated because I hate being stalked by fucking facebook.
>>9862835No, that’s nefferinthia
>>9862979When you say post often, how often do you mean?Like I post 2-3 times a week, is that enough?
>>9864460Nayrt but i see a lot of cosplayers post 1 - 2 times per day.. if not daily then at least every other day or every 3 days.. .. i feel like thats the safe zone for being more popular..
>>9862979mind if I ask what time frame? >>9863164Low Quality Bait
Self-post. Gothic & dark classic lolita outfit pics. @_naawie_
>>9866892How are your photos all so well composed and good quality?
>>9866903I stand next to a huge window and I also use a tripod. You need to increase the sharpness in all the photos to make them look better.
Guess I could post since the thread is firstname.lastname@example.orgI'm not super good at updating or keeping a decent steady feed, but hopefully I'll get better over time.
>>9827063Adding this Australian cosplayer cause why not
