My state's cosplay community gets me so fucking salty and I don't know why. It's no different from anywhere else, attention whores are everywhere, but the number of people around here that are so quick to brag is disgusting. Posting about having their costumes recognized by major creators when they didn't even make them, or announcing on facebook that they've been "cast" in a major film when they're working as fucking extras (this has been going around a lot recently thanks to a certain weeby film shooting in my state that every cosplayer who also happens to be an "actor" is clamoring to be part of). I wish I were bold enough to call them out publicly, but I'm not, so I'll just seethe anonymously.

And I normally don't really care about people plugging themselves constantly, so I'm not sure why I'm so irritated by this. Maybe because these people are straight up lying about their accomplishments rather than just being run of the mill self-absorbed. I'll chill out eventually, but damn, guys, come on.

Hey, it's bath-bomb-kun. I smell really good now, and there was a Gengar toy inside.

Anyone else have good experience buying/selling bath bombs at cons? I've seen character bombs, and people snap them up because they want to smell like Sasuke or whatever.

I used to be friends with a cosplayer and wannabe lolita (we'll call her Alice) who caused me a lot of trouble. No matter how much Alice upset me, I let it slide because I had invested so much time (and money) into our friendship before she started being a huge bitch. She was constantly talking shit about everyone she could, was hungry for fame and attention, but was very lazy.
Finally stopped being friends with her a year ago and I've never felt better. It's like a weight was lifted from my shoulders, the fog in my mind cleared, and the knife was pulled out of my back.
But, now I'm hearing that all the drama and trouble Alice caused me is happening to a mutual friend. This mutual friend is such a nice girl. She's a good cosplayer, wears cute clothes, and is someone to envy, but Alice is being a huge bitch to her. I don't know how to help my friend. She wants to break contact with Alice, but she doesn't have the courage to do it I guess.

Feels good to be free of Alice, but feels bad to hear that Alice is terrorizing a friend of mine...

I recently got out of an abusive relationship, and I noticed once I was back home and settled, I gained a lot of the weight I lost when I was with him. Thinking back, I realized I lost so much weight from being stressed out and just not eating well for fear of his ridicule and hits. Now that I'm home again, I'm better taking care of myself, and slowly starting to fit into my frilly wardrobe again! I want to lose the weight to be healthy and just feel better in lolita, not because someone is making fun of me that I'm not skinny like his ex.
If anyone has any tips on good cardio workouts, I'd love to hear them!

Kind of sick of fakebois. I get real mad everytime a cosplayer in my community assumes that they must be nonbinary or whatever just because they occasionally dress androgynously or they crossplay. When otherwise they keep their hair long and wear makeup everyday. And then everyone gives them asspats and takes them seriously? It just makes me think of all the real trans people I know and the shit they went through but these girls can do whatever the fuck they want with zero negative consequences.

There's a saying. "You can't outrun a bad diet". In essence, you aren't going to lose weight with exercise. You just aren't. Remember that.

You diet to lose weight. You exercise to get fit.

If you want to lose weight you need to understand calories and calorie density.

The short version is - for most women - eating 2000 calories a day means no weight change. Eating 500 more or less a day means you will gain or lose one pound that week.

Prioritise foods that will fill you up and sate you with the minimum calories and you will do well. When i was losing weight i practically lived off of soups and yoghurts, which are both high in water content and thus make you feel filled up for less.

That said, also remember that it really doesnt much matter what you eat. You just need to keep to your calorie count.

I personally dont much recommend trying to get fit while dieting at the same time. Exercise will make you hungrier, and make it more difficult to calculate calorie expenditure. It can absolutely be done, and might even be the optimum route, but i find that losing weight is already so difficult to many people that the simpler you make it (generally) the easier it is to keep to a plan. Restricting yourself to 1500 calories a day is waaaay easier than dealing with hunger pangs and the temptation of those super high sugar gym smoothies.

Last of all, the most important part of dieting is to learn to adjust your habits. If you've gained weight, especially if youve done so quickly, it means that you've been overeating pretty consistently (going back to the whole +500 calories a day for a week thing). Once you learn to recognise calories and portions properly, you will probably figure out how or on what you've been overeating. Adjust your behaviour properly and youll find it easy to maintain your ideal weight.

> TLDR - most diets fail because people dont understand how calories work, and dont understand calorie counting is essential to losing weight.

I'm going to put this out there that some people have a hard time dieting because they restrict foods. Some people have an easier time eating less of what they love then cutting out what they love to eat more.

Basically, some might find it easier to eat a bowl of loaded pasta with an iced coffee during the day and a bagel with cream cheese for breakfast (Let's say this is under... 1200 calories) than trying to fill up on 1500 of salad, fruits, lean meat, and granola.

Few months ago, I got caught up in a lot of drama with my cosplay friends. Turns out one girl was madly in love with my boyfriend, and said terrible things about me and my cosplays to everyone else in the group. I looked up to her as a local cosplay expert and a huge inspiration of mine.
I'll be seeing her at a local convention with everyone, and she keeps asking my boyfriend to meet up with them (He keeps refusing lmao).

I can't tell if parents just don't let their kids go trick-or-treating anymore or if this neighborhood has really gone to shit in the past year. Probably both.

Last year I was at my brother's house and he got several trick-or-treaters, a few of them had really adorable handmade costumes. A few houses in our neighborhood used to hold their own haunted houses, but I think they've stopped doing it now.

One of my coworkers is one of those trashy "halloween is satanic" types, so I wonder if parents are even letting their kids trick-or-treat at all, of not only participate in church events. I really hate living in the bible belt.

oversleeping is excusable maybe...does he know how excited you were, how much you like halloween, etc? If so, I'd at least demand a sincere apology and some kind of special outing to make up for it. Even if it's not on purpose it still shows he didn't prioritize you enough to set alarms or wake up to his alarms. If he didn't understand how much you love Halloween then you still deserve a more sincere apology, but you should also thoroughly explain to him why you're upset etc in the hopes that it won't happen again if he understands your feelings better.

Glad you had a fun time regardless of his participation though! Being out in lolita alone is pretty fun. I thought about doing something similar since my boyfriend isn't as crazy about Halloween as I am but I finally convinced him to go out to dinner with me and I wore my coordinate/costume to the restaurant, which was enough for me. I do wish I had gotten to hang out downtown or go to a party though!

depending on the time of year you buy tix/plan to go, and also where you are leaving from, japan doesn't have to be ridiculously expesnive! research good prices for airfare and use airbnb for your lodging. you can totally have a side budget for nippon and save up enough for tix before the end of 2017 if you want. personally i paid about $700 round trip for air fare from the southern US and about $300 total for airbnb lodging for a week. so if you put like $50 a week into your account for the rest of the time you're finishing school you'll have a really good base to start your japan fund with. but yeah either way it doesn't hurt to put money aside for a general "fun savings"!

Woah, what a lovely reply anon.
I'm glad your bf kind of met you half way by going to the restaurant with you even though he wasn't as enthusiastic about Halloween as you.

Unfortunately, my excitement has been quite palpable and as it's also our anniversary, I thought he would be quite excited as well. I wholeheartedly agree that explanations are a necessity and it's silly to expect someone to pick up on what's upset you by telepathy, but this isn't the first or second time he's effectively stood me up (but I usually try to validate it 'everyone oversleeps sometimes!', 'I forget things too!') . I passed on 3 other invites for the day (one of which I told him about directly), and I've said that when I pass on spending time with my friends and this happens, and saying 'welp, overslept' without even a 'sorry this happened' makes it seem like he doesn't think my time or relationships with others are important. But when I try to discuss it, he gets really upset and I end up feeling guilty even though I haven't done anything.

Sounds like a real winner there anon. If he really doesn't understand that he's basically doing all the 'take' and no 'give' with your needs in the relationship and you're making excuses for him every time, then it's going to keep happening until you put your foot down and actually make some consequences for him (because he sure as fuck doesn't seem to understand if it's happened a few times and he hasn't apologized) and he's just going to keep on taking. If he gets upset then so be it, he's basically manipulating you and making YOU feel guilty and comfort him so that he doesn't have to confront being a shitty human being to you and it becomes, unsurprisingly, all about him again.
It's not about telepathy, to be quite honest. It's about being emotionally mature enough to pick up on cues and be sensitive to other people's needs, and it sounds like you've done everything short of spell it out to him with a fucking manual.

I'm just really pissed off on your behalf as I have recently been in a relationship that sounds suspiciously like yours in terms of very unevenly balanced give/take and holy fuck did I deserve better than that, he wasn't as great as what I thought he was and I'm free to spend time with my friends without 'waaah why aren't you prioritizing me' (because he was always miraculously not doing anything when I would say yes to their invites...and then complain he didn't want to come hang out with us).

I've been seeing cosplayers that aren't paraplegic using wheelchairs for characters that don't use one in canon and it's just....so weird. Like why would you bind your legs to where you can't walk/use the bathroom on your own for a fucking cosplay and then force someone to push you around all day at a crowded con for the sake of "accuracy"?? Just sit down for photos in non crowded areas or for mermaid tails make a skirt and hide the seam/quickly pin it at the bottom. FFS.

I have a I small indie brand, focusing on Classic and Gothic lolita. I do some made to measure, but since I make extremely small runs I prefer to stick with standard sizing.

I've gotten messages from a girl in my comm who's much larger than the sizes I make. I have no problems with her personally, but I don't want to sell to her because I know it won't look good on her body type.

What do, gulls? I don't want to be a bitch to this girl, she's okay. Just large.

You arent going to last if you arent honest with yourself. If you cant admit that you dont have the skill to accommodate to her measurements, you arent good enough to have a brand to sell to people. It only will not look good on her body type if you lack the skill to modify it to a larger figure, which is not just sizing up but taking into account their body. Larger girls are used to spending more money to get stuff for them that looks good, especially if they cannot fit into any brand, so if you need to offer to make a better pattern to fit her size/body type for a fee and go for it.

I'm still fairly new to design. Tbh I just made matching dresses for myself and a couple of friends, but people have shown interest so...

About her body type, it's not just large exactly, kind of... lumpy. I haven't ever made anything for that body type yet. My impression of her is that her bust exceeds 100 cm. If anyone has experience with that sort of thing, I'd like to hear about it

Met a girl who found out I could afford brand, she's been only contacting me for money since
We aren't even friends, I bought a commission off of her (which hasn't been delivered mind you) and she's been pestering me for money since.
>"help me i'm off my meds, i cant afford them, last time i couldn't afford them i wanted to kill myself~"
(I told her good luck with that)
>"I really want this DVD set but I had to pay for food and feminine supplies, man this was the only thing that made me happy, I want to cut now! its going to be very hard not to cut!"
(told her good luck with that once again)
>"Its so hard having borderline personality disorder anon, so many people with this kill themselves that have this. I just want to cut myself and die, you wouldn't possibly understand, I NEED medicine to live!"
(told her I have borderline myself and I have been off medication for 3 years and have just learned to not be a twat)

I'm kind of tempted to just file a paypal claim. She is nothing but a nuisance and I just wanted someone to do art for me. I'm regretting this shit hardcore. But at the same time I know her family is in a shitty situation (always broke due to animal hoarding) and that taking my money back would put her in a shittier situation.

I'll add 'v' and scoop necks to that matter as well. Assuming a woman wears a good fitting bra and has a larger cup size, cleavage just happens. So... you have some girls who work to achieve it to feel sexy. But you also have some girls who simply can't wear lower cut clothing without it naturally showing.

How bad would it be if my mom tagged along to a meet with me? She's nice, social, supportive of lolita, and wouldn't try to edge her way into comm-y stuff like photos and whatnot. Can't drive myself around for medical reasons (won't bother with the full B'AWW story) and think it'd be really good to get out of the house. The meet is almost an hour away so she couldn't just go back home, and I don't have the heart to ask her to hang out somewhere else since she's already doing me a favor.

I'm definitely going to message one of the comm leaders first and ask if it's alright. I'd hate to make a bad impression just because I'm sick all the time. Feelsbad

I had a friend in beauty surgery who got the reduction surgery. The doctors removed 10 pounds from one breast, 12 pounds from the other. She had it paid for by insurance because she was in danger of developing back problems from 40 pounds of weight on her chest. (Breasts weight more than we commonly think!)

She still had huge boobs afterward. They don't just reduce the breasts during the surgery. The doctors generally also even up both sides as well as lift the tissue. The doctors will make them look very nice. (I'm just saying, they may look better afterward.)

It is surgery though. If they aren't causing her skeletal problems and severe pain, she shouldn't get it done.

If the only pain she's facing is near her time of month, she may want to look into options to alleviate period symptoms such as different birth control options and prescription medicine before going with surgery.

I'd explain to your comm leaders about your health problems in private.

I'd ask your mother if it's okay to drop you off with an emergency contact number if one of the other members agrees to stay present until she arrives to pick you up.

She likely won't mind going to do her own thing. It's your health that's concerning her. She doesn't want to go shopping or to a movie, the meet end, she gets behind... and then everyone leaves and something happens to you while you are waiting alone on her.

Given the situation, one of the members in charge likely wouldn't mind sticking around after the meet ends in the event your mother runs behind. They also likely wouldn't mind keeping your emergency contact on hand. Especially if those two things means you can get an hour or two of time without a chaperone.

And if it's diabetes or an issue you'll need help injecting medicine, it is still worthwhile to ask your comm. You'd be surprised how common such things are.

For the dress - spot wash and run heaps of water through the spots, and use a laundry soap. Don't use hot water, bleach, or anything else to start with, and rub really gently at the spots (don't scrub).
With your petti, soak it in tons of cold water and run water through it, then before you get to the bleach etc. put it through a machine wash by itself in a laundry bag.
Hot water will often 'set' a blood stain so wash your petti cold.

You're not supposed to wash your hair (or skin, for that matter) every day. Your body has natural oils in place and washing them off too frequently damages it. Your hair and skin will age faster if you soap up every day. Unless it's sweaty hot summer, best to rinse one day and soap the next. So alternate between a just water shower and a soapy shower.

The idea of using soap every single day came from marketers taking advantage of self conscious consumers; same with mouth wash (which really isn't needed for proper dental hygiene at all -- just brush and floss regularly and properly).

Spit on that shit as much as possible then proceed with other anons advice.

the only scientifically significant improvement in skin condition is to wear sun screen and maybe use moisturiser. But sunscreen has great proof in being effective, moisturisers are a little bit less so but they don't hurt you.

My advice. What the anon posted above (there is nothing that supports daily showering is "good" for you) plus daily application of sunscreen if you are going to be outside (or even if you aren't) and you will get the best most provable results.

Your skin is perfectly adequate of healing itself just give it an environment free of additional damage and it will do the rest.

Reach out to all your friends ahead of time to explain the situation. Boil the drama down to 1-2 sentences ("I paid for a wig commission, she lied about it for a year and then asked to end our friendship because I was upset about it"), and then explain that you want to put this drama behind you and don't want it to affect anyone's con. You'd like to avoid being around her but still want to see them, and are they okay with that? If this girl is already lying about you, it's important to get everyone on the same page before she can start whispering in their ears and/or having them avoid you at con.

But why? The only "person" you should be comparing yourself to in cosplay is the character that you are cosplaying. The people at the convention aren't characters, they're other cosplayers, and sometimes ass at it.

Cosplay is about attention to detail and effort. At the same time, assuming that you aren't advertising yourself, you aren't expected to be doing some crazy amazing super high detailed job.

I don't mean to, it just happens. I start to worry that I look bad or my cosplays aren't as good as I think they are even if I worked hard on them.

I know part of it is because I'm more active on social media now. Before, I was fairly new to it so I didn't keep up with the cosplay community. Now I know more people/follow more cosplayers and I feel like I have to maintain a certain image. It's stupid, I know, but hard to break out of.

Idk, I'm a perfectionist by nature and making cosplays challenges me so I don't want to give it up but I wish I could recapture the feeling I had in the beginning. My cosplays were bad but I had more fun.

The main difference that I've seen between the two genders on 4chan is that females tend to have violent mood swings into anxiety and depression while males tend to be more stable in their moods (which can mean depression for months to years with no joy).

for instance, i get compliments in my regular clothing (mori and casually cute jfash) but i get a lot more when i'm in lolita. so i think being more noticeable has something to do with it.

i think you should ask yourself what kinds of alternative fashion you like, as opposed to what kinds will get you the most attention. what makes a positive impression for some will leave a negative impression to others. some people think lolita is weird ageplay shit, others think it's regal as fuck. depends.

just take what you're interested in and roll with it, and if you do it well then compliments and attention are likely to come.

but if you want to pander to an audience, ouji is a hell of a way to do it. a lot of lolitas' petticoats drop for a good ouji. i prefer men in nicely done mori myself, and you could probably get away with it in a more normie environment, but ouji is more popular.
