I'm getting my costume together to cosplay for the first time ever. I don't know how to handle walking around in costume all day or having pictures taken of me.

Anyone got any tips for cosplaying for the first time? I'm very nervous about it. I'll be in mask btw

I hate being shy so much. When people talk to me I automatically turn red and awkward. When someone asks for my picture I turn VERY red. My face is noticeably red in all my cosplay pictures. It's so ugly and weird looking. It doesn't help that all the characters I like have a no make-up/natural look.

Even if your characters are relatively natural looking, that doesn't mean you can't give yourself some decent coverage so the blushing gets toned down, generally it looks better in photos because characters in anime/games etc have flawless skin.

I go a little more ham than I would for my regular make up look when I cosplay. I tend to get unlucky and have cons when I get my period and around that time I get a little more flushed than usual.

Do you have red undertones in your skin already? Some color correcting cream (green) with your moisturizer layered with foundation and powder can do wonders.
I had super bad red acne in my late teens and I could cover it fine daily, so I doubt it's "too red". Do some experimentation. You can put makeup on ears and neck too.

Maybe practice being in front of people/a camera with a friend, too? The more used you are to it, the less you will flush up.

Ive gone through a similar situation and you just have to try to tough it out. Try dressing up in casual when you have to leave the house to do shopping. I find that its alot more fun to dress up for myself even when I'm not doing anything particularity interesting. It usually made me feel a little bit more motivated to take care of myself even while working 50 hours a week and going through depressive episodes.

Hey anon, I know that feeling. Don't get too hopeful for a relationship, try to stay objective about it and just be friends. If something happens down the line, it happens, but don't hope for it. It sucks being lonely, but You have to remember that you are in a vulnerable state atm, even if you don't really feel that way, and just go with the flow instead of forcing things. Don't overthink it either, just let it happen and try to not think about it in a crush way.

This happens to me too. It got better for a long time but recently I moved and changed jobs and I’m interacting with a lot of people/things for the first time and for some reason I turn red at every interaction.

I have found in my case that wearing makeup helps me a little because usually when I feel myself blushing, I start thinking about how the other person can see it, and that makes me turn more red. If I wear makeup I mentally convince myself that the other person doesn’t notice when I first turn red, and so I usually don’t progress to the fully ripened tomato stage

I've already worked on my usual day off and weekends as well. My collegues are great but my boss is so tough to work with, and he's at work 7 days a week so theres no avoiding him.

I'm a lonelita, and this board has been my connection to other people in the fashion for years...
but I'm so dissatisfied and disappointed in the quality of discussion these days.
I want so badly to sperg out with people irl, and hang out with folks who are genuinely interested in coording well and looking nice.
I want lolita friends so badly. I'm obsessed with this fashion and I deeply believe it should be inclusive, as long as you look well put together.
I can no longer tell if the hateful ideologues on here are a very vocal minority or if this closed-mindedness is a growing trend. it's tiresome.
At least if I had a real comm nearby, people would keep this shit to themselves and I could exchange about the fashion without such negativity.
Being a gull has opened me up to the possibility that I'm very likely a high functioning autist, just never tested for it, and it's really nice to share info with the other autists peppered about this board who are dedicated to this hobby on basically a scholarly level as well as an artistic level.

I don't plan on leaving /cgl/ because I couldn't possibly rely on a comm, filled with diverse people and personalities, as an outlet for my sperging. But, I desperately need a balance of positive interactions and fun within this hobby. I would love it if I could hurry up and find a job in a bigger city and enjoy fancy as well as casual events with other lolitas.

Sex is a big part of a lot of people’s lives. You of course shouldn’t shame someone for not being into it, but you shouldn’t shame someone for needing it as a part of a good relationship either.

Love is different than friendship for a lot of reasons, but a big one is that feeling of physical attraction. I’ve been in a sexless relationship before and it didn’t feel good. I felt like we were codependent friends, not boyfriend and girlfriend. Now that I’m in a healthy relationship, I couldn’t imagine going back. Sex drives wax and wane from time to time, but during the good times, sex is a 3-4 time a week thing. It’s rude to term that sluttiness IMO.

I'm over reliant on this board for my lolita sperging because i feel more comfortable sperging into the void. I always end up ghosting people when i try to go out of my way to have lolita friends or online friends because of anxiety reasons and I feel terrible.

On that note, would it be weird to reach out to someone i've ghosted for like 2 years to say sorry and explain myself and try to start talking with them again?

I used to think lolita should always be super inclusive of everyone when I was a lonelita, but then I joined a local comm and understood why gatekeeping can be a good thing sometimes.

If you ghosted me, I'd appreciate the explanation, honestly. But it would take time to earn my trust back. Worth it if you mean it and want the friendship.

>> No.10243371

I'll be honest, I want to interact with my local lolita community but the only interaction I've had with anything lolita related is through this board, and I've become too scared to interact with anyone out of the fear that they'll be someone from here who's secretly an asshole. Stupid, I know.

Welcome back anon! Sorry it didn't go how you hoped but for a first attempt that's not really all that bad. Dust yourself off and get back on the horse, it'll be so worth it when you find yourself the qt cosplayer of your dreams.

I'm rooting for you!

After listening to far too much YMO songs, learning about history of china and browsing trought my grandparent's collection of kitschy objects, I developed a liking for shitty orientalist/ wappanese trash. Like when they got things wrong since they naively don't know about the culture. I also like the reverse case ( east asian interpreting occidental stuff ).
But we all goddamn know what will happend if I had reference to that in my outfits or in my drawings. But god I love it so much even tho I will never find someone who like that too.

Jfc where do you get the energy and time? Do you not have jobs?

>> No.10243485

After a toxic friend destroyed my friend group it feels like I have no friends left in my community. Either they quit the fashion, moved away, or they are friends with the toxic former friend. I still go to meetings but I just notice how I don't get greeted with the same excitement as before.

>time
Full time jobs. Get home around 6 PM. Sex usually just means going to sleep around 11:30 instead of 10:30.
>Energy
Sometimes this is an issue. But I find that being active (such as by committing to frequent sex) actually helps with energy. I have the lowest energy when I fall into a rut of lazing around all day.

>> No.10243532

>>10243531
Isn’t 11:30 a little late? Going to bed early is better for you, you know.

Is your life really so boring that having sex is the only way you know of to be active? I feel sorry for you

Sex is good for your mental and physical health. It’s not a waste of time unless you’re asexual. Not sure why you bother arguing when the only thing you can say is “I don’t like it therefore no one should“. I don’t like going to parties, but I’m not going to tell people that it’s a waste of time to do it. People are allowed to do things for the sole purpose of enjoyment.

>tfw can't tell if I'm feeling con depression or just regular depression rn
Either way, I know for sure that this is is probably the first time I ever felt pretty depressed after a con. I guess it also doesn't help that immediately after I had to go straight back to job hunting which hasn't been fruitful these past 2 months.

I found this con story on /co/

>Dana Snyder and Dino Stamatopoulos were putting on a panel series at a convention I went to over the summer. Because he's a nice guy, Dino decided to blow his appearance fee on fried chicken for the audience. Despite his 3 vodka-per-hour average pace, he was somehow sober enough to plan ahead and split the money between two days, and he told us that he had. The second night had a much larger crowd, since word had spread that fried chicken was being handed out less than 50 feet from the concession stand selling the same thing for $10. Due to some issues he had with a lack of dark meat, he went with a different caterer, and their rates were much worse.

>With too many congoers and not enough chicken, Dana had the bright idea of forcing people to line up and beg for it. There's a handful of people that do tricks, some blatant flatterers, and a few people offering trades, so the line is moving pretty slowly. I'm spending most of the time staring at the back of a Pickle Rick cosplayer who is a few spots ahead of me in line. It's a big cheap mix of plastic and laundry hamper fabric; standard store-bought costume. When he gets up there, Dana and Dino look at him expectantly as he mumbles "I'm food so I deserve food" or something along those lines. They crack a cannibalism joke, hand him his chicken, and let him go. Unlike everyone else, who had the decency to sit around and eat their chicken while enjoying the panel, Pickle Rick walks straight out the door.

>Dino is drunk enough to take this as a personal insult, so he jumps off the stage and chases down Pickle Rick. About a minute later, he's hauling Pickle Rick back into the conference room by the arm. In the middle of the room, he starts screaming "What's wrong with you? and throwing immaculate stage punches by grabbing the side of the costume as he pulls his fist back and then punching the air pocket.

>Pickle Rick threw his chicken down and called the cops. Good panel.

It’s not your fault. Some people are good at hiding it. Pour a stiff drink and be glad he got outed before you got more serious with him.

Did you have a lot of fun at the con? If so, it’s probably post con blues. The come downs are especially nasty after a really good time.

Did you not have fun, and wished you put yourself out there more and made the most of your time? Possibly post con blues.

If you had a typical amount of fun, maybe it’s real depression. Good luck with the job hunt!

It was pretty fun this year, I'm a bit surprised and sad at how much I liked wearing the new cosplay since I only wore it for a day and won't be able to wear it again anytime soon since I intended for this to be my last con for the year. I guess the con was a nice breath of fresh air that I really needed at the moment but now that it's over it's back to trying to deal with the same frustrating things that drain me on a daily basis. Thanks though anon, I really appreciate it. Hopefully I'll get something soon.

Dear gull, remember that no matter how 'good' or 'adoring' a customer is... you have every right to 'ban' their ass if the behavior in question is making you uncomfortable.
