Board: /cgl/

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

READ THIS BEFORE YOU POST A NEW THREAD
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!

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.

Jfash during the summer of COVID-19, pt 2
EZwuy5QU0AYWJQn
The last thread reached the image limit: >>10441510

Harajuku street fashion in Japan is finding ways to deal with COVID-19, and one of the most obvious ways has been the increased usage of masks for coord snaps. Even in coords that are simple and light for the summer heat, a mask adds visual interest, whether it be a brand mask or a plain white one. Brands like h.Naoto sell mask charms (pic related). Some brands have also incorporated pandemic-related art, such as the icon Amabie or warnings to keep distance (Deorart) or encouragement to #StayHome (Hyper Core). Another issue is that many events remain canceled, so remote meetups are more common, and this thread may feature some coords from those, including virtual participation in the upcoming Corset Day on 8/8.

Many shops have not survived the pandemic. Noble Noire, Sexpot Revenge's only Tokyo shop, and Atelier Boz in Nagoya are some of the stores that have permanently closed.

I will start this thread with some snaps from Atelier Boz Nagoya's last sale event.

Gaylord National Harbor just laid off its entire staff.(RIP Katsucon and Magfest)
gaylord-national
https://www.bizjournals.com/washington/news/2020/06/19/gaylord-national-files-huge-layoff-notice.html

>The Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center in National Harbor filed a layoff notice June 15 affecting its 2,077 employees as the coronavirus pandemic continues to pummel the hospitality industry.

>The Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification (WARN) filed with the Maryland Department of Labor lists an effective date of March 11. The Gaylord, Greater Washington's largest hotel at 1,996 rooms, has been closed since March 24, when the owner of all seven Gaylord resort properties across the country suspended operations.

So much for those cons coming back anytime soon.

Good Brolita
3b129558-d984-4b09-aeda-369ab194b50d
There was a time when brolitas were accepted in the communities as long as they actually participated in the fashion properly. I'd like to start a thread that takes us back to the time before. It was a short time but it was okay for boys to wear dresses just because they wanted to be pretty and not have some agenda behind it. I only have this one guy as an example but if there are others post them as well.

I currently have a spare room in my house that I throw all my cosplay stuff in. Over the years I've stockpiled a lot of shit to the point the room is a mess of random cloth, props, and accessories. I am looking to do a spring clean deal on it, and I want to organize it to where I can easily find cosplays and store then nice and neat. Probably throw out all the old stuff, too. How do I go about making my Cosplay Room? Work table, drawers, rack with hangers? Making sure always to have some space to walk around in. It's not too big of a room, but it comes with a closet.

Buyer/Seller Fuckery
a1a
Negative, Neutral, Positive or No Feedback

Recently I’ve encountered a number of bizarre and confusing seller and buyer behaviors on Lacemarket. I’m interested to see what you might do in these situations. Is there a feedback guide on Lacemarket that I am missing somewhere? I remember something informally used on eglcommsales but I haven’t seen anything similar in a while. Please add any questions you have also considered using your own number and green text arrow. Have a recent dilemma or horror story? Post it here without usernames to get input and keep the thread interesting.

> Do you every purposely leave no feedback and why?

> 1. Item smells uncleaned or worn such as body odor or perfume
> 2. Item has small undisclosed damages (accepts full return you ask for)
> 3. Item has small undisclosed damages (seller agrees to the partial refund you ask for)
> 4. Item has small undisclosed damages (seller offers a partial refund smaller than what you ask for)
> 5. Item has small undisclosed damages (seller does not agree to a partial refund and asks you to return for a full refund instead)
> 6. Item arrives in a different size than what was advertised
> 7. Item has true measurements largely different than the sellers own ameteaur measurements
> 8. Item has true measurements largely different than the lolibrary post and seller did not take ameteaur measurements
> 9. Seller ships the wrong item to you and pays for the wrong item's return
> 10. Seller ships the wrong item to you, pays for the return, and offers partial refund for correct item as apology

Direction
1595742038606
I'm a guy. A huge, tall, wide, hairy big boi who lifts heavy metal plates and punches other burly guys in a ring. I only wear black tank tops (got about 20 of them) and sport legwear everywhere I go. I don't even own other clothes since my job is also in a gym. Every clothing I own is some sort of sports clothing.

But I want to dress fancy as fuck. I saw someone post this pic in an Ideals thread on /fit/ and it piqued my interest.
Or something similar to this. Basically the male version of lolita.

Where the hell do I even begin, if it's something I haven absolutely and utterly ZERO experience with and knowledge of? Like, so I google (lolita clothes for men" ? I'm not even american, don't suggest american brands or shops please, thank you.

Jfash during the summer of COVID-19
EcV8VwOUEAAFBSI
Harajuku street fashion in Japan is finding ways to deal with COVID-19, and one of the most obvious ways has been the increased usage of masks for coord snaps. Many brand masks are out of stock; it is easier to find masks from larger brands such as h.Naoto and Qutie Frash rather than from smaller brands such as Abilletage.

I will post some shop snaps featuring mask coords. Even in coords that are simple and light for the summer heat, a mask adds visual interest, whether it be a brand mask or a plain white one.

Worbla and other thermoplastics are expensive and a waste of money

cant we just make armor plates out of clay and then harden them in an oven? It will also make the armor feel rock hard and give it a bit of realism. If you make it thin it shouldn't be too heavy (you don't need to make it functional). also, clay gets a lot of its weight from water, so when it dries, it's lighter than when you worked with it

worbla is like $80 a sheet

clay is $3 a lb

Broad shoulders/Shit proportions
1091152540
Anons how do you guys deal with broad shoulders while still wearing cute things?

I end up feeling like a crossdresser when i wear anything with frills or cute prints, the contrast with my undelicate body is so ugly. I'm not even fat, just have big shoulders, no waist and a large ribcage (fridge shaped...). And yeah, i'm cis. My mom and aunt have this same shape.

It got so bad that i threw out all the clothes i liked and kept only jeans and tshirts a few months ago. I couldn't handle seeing my reflection or seeing myself in pictures anymore.

But i still drool over dresses and printed skirts, cardigans... i want to go back to wearing things that i like. Do you any of you have this issue?
