How has your comm handled the pandemic? Have you started in person meetups or are you still doing zoom calls?

Mine became an instant ghost town back in 2020 and has just recently started doing zoom meetups and small in person events.

Comm is totally dead after covid, no virtual or irl meets. Kind of want to post on the fb group to break the ice since it's less than 50 people but the last post was in february. But... part of me wants to stay a lonelita. The fashion scene where I live is full of ita covidlitas... like the ones that will never ever ever move out of aliexpress, and zoomers that parrot what they hear on tiktok like muh AP fatphobia. And neither will ever try to learn the culture or wear lolita outside of a con. Although... I've looked at the profiles and icons of everyone in my state's specific comm and none of them seem bad? I still have a irrational fear of going to a meet and seeing some bitch with a 20$ aliexpress dress with severe tiktok/twitter brainrot.

Let's just talk about cons and cosplay that has to do with us

Anyone else going to J-popcon, for instance? I really hope they can pull it off so soon after the pandemic, and I hope they can get many people for the J-fashion show because that was an absolute highlight last time I was there. I'm a bit worried, but I guess even just finally going to a real con is nice.

Depends on what event and what you are looking for? Närcon is a festival with many activities, pricey food and many teens. Great event if you are younger and wanna meet friends I guess. Jpopcon seems better organized than närcon and the staff seems to not be preteens wanting free ticket while skipping work kek

Looks like cosplay.com is back up and (partially) running after a few years of being shut down. No clue why it ever got abandoned in the first place considering it was never really dead, but that’s besides the point. Oldfriends will remember that this site was a pretty popular place to talk about cosplay/cons online before the rise of social media, so it’s nice to see it functional again. With the cosplay side of /cgl/ having been completely overtaken by coomers and mods/jannies who enable this behavior, I’m cautiously optimistic that cosplay.com can grow back a healthy population and be a place for cosplayers to just talk cosplay. Long form discussions don’t lend themselves well to Twitter or Insta, which is where most cosplay stuff is nowadays, so I think there’s space for a traditional forum in the cosplay community (which USED to be filled by /cgl/, but we can all see what this place has become).
Anyone have plans to use this site? Any stories from its heyday you wanna share?

Cosplay.com is where I got my start in figuring out cosplay.

I remember posting about a potential first cosplay I wanted to do and some helpful rando straight-up offered to buy me the basic fabric and thread to get started with on it.

it's not illegal for anyone to ask you to do them a favor. the way this kind of thing usually happens is your employer "encourages" (guilts or pressures) people into doing certain things off the clock, and as people start doing these things, others worry that their job security will be at risk if they don't do it too.

I was surprised because so many of their reviews mentioned them being rather stretchy.

alrighty so ive made sin's dumb jacket thing before and you can basically take a full jacket pattern-- any will do-- and chop of the top part.
i tried to roughly draw out what each part would look like. if you use some same colored bias tape with a relatively stiff fabric on the top area the sleeve should hold its shape.

Nice GET. I would be very upset if I saw this coming down the stairs.

Babadook is a movie about dealing with loss, which Mr. Babadook is the representation of grief associated with the woman losing her husband and child's father. Before finding that out I thought it was just a movie about a stressed out parent losing her mind. It was good before, but the second watch with that in mind made it brilliant.

Fuck I love this. Can’t tell if it’s meant to be those zombies from re4 or something else but it’s hella creepy.

What’s the best Halloween themed con? I’m sure there’s got to be several that cater to the spooky season. I’m open to anime or comic, but prefer anime conventions.
