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!

Male Cosplay
Would you agree that on average, the typical male cosplay is not as good as a typical female cosplayer?

If so why do you think this is? For me, I think a big failing point of male cosplays is no makeup and no/bad wig styling. Even a simple layer of foundation would instantly improve things.

What are other things men could do to improve their cosplay?

No vendetta on the OP pic. Just wanted to use that one since it’s ‘technically’ accurate but it just looks wrong and I don’t know why.

/ouG/ - Couch Potato Edition
Old thread hit image limit >>10281032

This thread is for ouji and aristocrat (aka "boystyle") discussion. "Boystyle" is shorthand for "boystyle lolita" and refers to the masculine counterparts of Japanese lolita and, often, aristocrat fashions. There is a lot of overlap between these styles, and different people use different terms to describe them. We usually just use "ouji" here.

>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: What resources for ouji are left? Comment below so we can update this OP, please.

3d Printed Props
For those of you who have had your props 3d printed by a studio or some other service, how much does it generally cost? I'm putting together a Titanfall 2 cosplay, and I'm hoping to get a pilot's Jumpkit 3d printed (pictured here, the little jetpack on her butt). It comes in 39 somewhat small pieces. How much should I be paying for a job like that?

I've shopped around 3d printing services once before, but it involved a lot of haggling and a lot of businesses asking me "how much are you willing to spend?" I ended up getting the parts for a pilot's helmet printed for 400 dollars and I had to haggle it down from 1,200. I have no idea if I got ripped off anyway.

Also it worth it to just buy your own 3d printer as a cosplayer

I'm a 22 year old male and I've traveled to a few Lolita events with my friends in the last four years and over time I have fallen in love with the fashion and the surprisingly supportive culture.

I myself haven't worn or owned any lolita clothing because 1. My strict conservative family 2. My white trash small town in the pnw 3. If anyone in my industry saw me like that (I'm a licenced contractor) they'd have no mercy on me and it would be the end of my career.

I have been saving up money and have been planning to move out of my PoS white trash town and I want to join a comm in a major city in the near future. I am afraid of rejection though.

I need some advice and I generally want to make a good impression. The past two weeks I've been "sheltered in place" and just picking and choosing outfits has helped pass the time

Is there something you can impress people with in 2020?
Look how even the simpliest design could get you a lot of engagement 5-10 years ago. Back then we didn't have a lot of technology for crafing, so it felt really precious. Now, in the days of worbla and foam armour, it just doesn't feel as special anymore. Whatever stuff seems easy to recreate. Is there yet something left that may look interesting in 2020?

Of course con's are getting canceled, deal with it
So we have this genius who thinks that the Coronavirus is not a big deal.


I honestly wonder if they have ever been to a con. You have ten's if not hundreds of thousands of people there who don't even follow the basic hygiene regiment. Then you throw in a virus that at this moment has infected 15x more people than SARS ever did. Take those two and then put it into a convention center that has everyone rubbing against each other because the convention center is at max capacity. At this point I wouldn't be surprised if the CDC just firebombed the convention center.

So to all anon out there who are annoyed that the 2020 con season is not going to happen, DEAL WITH IT. It is better to be cautious and just wait until next year instead of using con's as a way to spread a highly contagious, deadly disease because you had to go and spend 3x as much for a figure instead of just buying it online. Seriously, you can wait another year.

Jfash Portraits 6
i have hoarded many photos of jfashionistas that i think have artistic value beyond the usual coord shot or selfie. i would like to share some. they will include all kinds of Japanese alternative fashion, and subjects may be any age or gender; and they will NOT be images from publications such as KERA, Fruits, etc.; so i hope there will be good inspiration for a variety of seagulls.

this is a continuation of 5 prior threads, which reached the image cap:


the last thread featured some portraits that use techniques to disorient the viewer, sometimes even to challenge or antagonize the viewer; portraits in which false injuries or writing in or near the subject seem to express an internal wound or convey anti-authoritarian or other subversive feeling; subjects isolated from others or the environment, reflecting on the "outsider" status of alternative fashionistas; generally, the trend of using portraiture to depict common subjective feelings of subversion, defiance, alienation, solitude, dreaming, power, and self-determination among those who wear alternative fashion.

now, i would like to begin this thread with a return to simpler pleasures of color and form. i want to share photographs that use solid backdrops, typically in a studio setting, to create visually striking portraits.

I want to go to a nearby con but I moved away from all my con-going friends.

How is the solo con experience? Is it easy to meet a group of people? I enjoy the party/alcohol aspect of cons the most so that would be the crowd I'd want to find. I'm also asexual, just like getting shitfaced.
