Board: /cgl/

"/cgl/ - Cosplay & EGL" is 4chan's imageboard for the discussion of cosplay, elegant gothic lolita (EGL), and anime conventions.


get out while you still can
/cgl/ is a board for the following:

• Cosplay
• Lolita
• J-fashion
• Conventions & gatherings
• Sewing & prop-making
• Craftsmanship tools/materials & tutorials
• LARPing
• Discussing accessories such as wigs/circle lenses/prosthetics/makeup (These must be within the context of the board-related topics listed above; weight loss threads should be kept in /fit/, beauty and fashion generals should be kept in /fa/)

Our board rules are simple:

• Thread content must be related to one of the categories covered in the list above. Off-topic threads and replies will be deleted.
• Singling people out maliciously is not tolerated and will result in a ban. 4chan is not your personal army. The singling out rule applies to vendetta threads and replies being made to attack a specific person, as well as predatory behavior like doxing. Discussing an individual in general isn't against the rules as long as it's done within context of cosplay/lolita/j-fashion.
• Advertising and spamming are not allowed.
• This is a work-safe board.

If you encounter a post that is in violation of these rules, USE THE REPORT BUTTON! Please help us keep the board healthy and free of off-topic posts!

Lovely Lor

Screen Shot 2019-02-10 at 7.32.09 PM
I saw that there was a thread for LWLN, so I thought one to discuss Lor would be interesting too, as people tend to have a lot of opinions about her in other threads.

Personally, I wish she would actually wear lolita casually or try something like that instead of being such a conlita.

/ouG/ - Dapper Neko edition

Old thread hit bump limit >>10025409

This thread is for ouji and aristocrat (aka "boystyle") discussion. "Boystyle" is shorthand for "boystyle lolita" and refers to the masculine counterparts of lolita and, often, aristocrat fashions. There is a lot of overlap between these styles, and different people use different terms to describe them. So, consider this a thread for those whose style is on the right half of Buttcape's Lolita Family Triangle:

>Shopping spreadsheet

>Buttcape-sensei's shopping guide (mentions which brands/shops have men's or custom sizes):

>Blogs for current boystyle releases, news, and info

Google your questions before asking them here.

Read the whole thread before asking questions here.

OC and selfposts encouraged! Random picspam discouraged.

Discussion: Have you modified any lolita dresses or skirts into ouji wear? Do you have any resources to help someone accomplish this?

Con staff story thread

I haven't seen any of these threads in a while and I was contemplating about starting one.

I've staffed at my local con for a decade now and just like all good things, things must come to an end. I am leaving this con for good and see how management brings it to the ground afar. So let me share some of the stories i've accumulated throughout the years.
Story from my first year:
>Be me
>supervisor tells me they are going for their lunch break and i will be able to go on mine when they come back
>3h later, I am still waiting for them to come back
>5h later, they finally come back and tell me i can go for my break. At this time, the hunger has passed

Another one at around my 5 year mark
>Be me in my "office"
>outside my office is a hallways. If its not crowded, you could navigate it no problem, but at that time it was crowded because one of the room had a werewolf game and it overfilled so people just crowded outside and sat in small islands to play werewolf
>see attendee walk pass my door with what looked like a stick in his arm and waving it around in the air
>quickly run out the door to have a small chat with him because safety liability
My reasoning behind this: if a staff didn't warn him and he accidentally hit someone, that someone could sue the convention for negligence for not warning the attendee
>approach him, tell him he shouldn't swing his stick because it may hurt someone
>"no it's fine, it's been peace bonded" and he hands me over the stick
mfw its a bokken
mfw the way how it was manifactured it could easily break someone skull
>hands him over "just don't swing it, its a safety hazard and you may hurt someone"
>nods and walks away
>see him walk away and he starts swinging the sword
I still wished this idiot, who thinks a peace bonded sword meant he could do whatever the fuck he wanted with it, actually hit someone and got into legal trouble because of it

Since the last one had a few bits of Dota sprinkled through it we may as well group all of the ARTS games together to hopefully keep things maybe slightly more active.

Akon disaster

So I lost about $750 in airfare and about $500 on a hotel. I booked everything about a week before their announcing a change of dates.

My main beef is, if they knew that the dates would be changed...why did they not say something sooner?

Why would they let people keep making plans and throw away their money?

>But anon, it's your fault for booking early.

It's definitely NOT, especially when the convention itself provides financial incentive to book early via cheaper badges.

Wicked - Elphaba Make up Products

Does anyone know of or have a comprehensive list of all the products used to Greenify Elphaba? I know most of them, but I'd like to have a complete list. I particularly want to know the name and brand of the second shade of green they use. Everyone talks about the Chroma Cake in Landscape green, but there's also another green that's a bit lighter and more yellow that also comes in a circular pan. I've circled it in the photo below. If anyone can help me identify it I'd be very grateful.

Vic's convention behavior

Redpill me on Vic in general at conventions. I already know the straw that got him fired turned out to be a fabrication, but all recent drama aside, ive heard rumors he's done shit in the past as well. I've been a Vic shill for awhile even before this Happening, but i rather shill the truth instead.

Anyone asked for J-Fash or Cos advice and had this conversation?

>be me
>ask how to get into cosplay
>"buy this 500-600 dollar machine that laminates angel hair and smells like nuclear waste"
>ask for advice on how to get armour looking even and symmetrical
>"lol, just get a 3D printer, anon."
>Reiterate I'm a poorfag and ask if there are any cheap sowing machines I can get under $200.
>"Silly anon, just save up for a $2000 dollar sowing machine. Like my parents bought for me."

Why do cosplayers assume all other cosplayers are rich enough to buy all this expensive shit that's unnecessary? I'm okay for finding cheaper things now but when I was starting out it was a real ball ache for me. Especially the 3d printer cucks. Every answer to my questions was "3D print it" as if everyone just has a reliable $600 piece of machinary lying around the house.

/ouG/ - Boystyle General: Cuppa edition

Old thread hit bump limit >>9891945

This thread is for ouji and aristocrat (aka "boystyle") discussion. "Boystyle" is shorthand for "boystyle lolita" and refers to the masculine counterparts of lolita and, often, aristocrat fashions. There is a lot of overlap between these styles, and different people use different terms to describe them. So, consider this a thread for those whose style is on the right half of Buttcape's Lolita Family Triangle:

>Shopping spreadsheet

>Buttcape-sensei's shopping guide (mentions which brands/shops have men's or custom sizes):

>Blogs for current boystyle releases, news, and info

Google your questions before asking them here.

Read the whole thread before asking questions here.

OC and selfposts encouraged! Random picspam discouraged.

Good quality in lolita and J-fashion

lolita quality
Lolita gives emphasis to good quality and all J-fashion styles can benefit from well-made garments. This thread is to discuss what makes something good (or high) quality.

You can post stuff about bad quality for comparison, but please keep the focus on good quality. Also, if someone posts something that in your opinion is not great quality either discuss it in a civil way or contribute with your example of good quality. We all have different standards and that’s okay.

You can post high-end fashion and other normie clothes, but just as an example, we are talking about Japanese styles.
