Crafts Thread - Quarantine Edition
T22v5aXmdXXXXXXXXX_!!350943780
Last thread >>10322620
>For everything crafts and DIY related! Thread is for things like felting, resin work, jewelry making etc.
>For cosplay crafting, artist alley and handmade Lolita clothing use appropriate threads.

The last thread was really nice and crafting is a good way to spend quarantine. Is anyone learning a new skill, or getting caught up on old projects? Please share them here!

I'm learning how to make rosaries myself, I'll share a few pics of what I'm working with once I clean up my mess. I never done this before, so I'm learning as I'm going. I have a question for more experienced jewelry makers: for cutters, I just found out that there's diagonal and side cutters, so what would be better to use to get a nice clean cut on the eye pins? I've just been using the shitty cutter in my rosary pliers, but I can't get a nice flush cut that isn't sharp, and I can't always tuck the sharp part into the bead.

Thoughts on the FB salt mines? Are they too harsh? Are they warranted? Or we all just sick of seeing every pastel sweater being called jfashion?

Anime characters, IMO slim bodies are the most fit for the job.
mari-makinami-illustrious-akiba-cosplayer-004
If you look at anime characters, their legs are usually very slim. Even those who have thick bodies would translate into a thin body IRL.

So IMO girls who have very slim bodies look the best while doing cosplay.

Girls who have normal bodies look like a "fat" version of the character.

Does anyone else thinks the same???

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.

Deco and OTT Sweet Thread
tumblr_muzc7reH461sliti5o1_400
It seems as if the era of 2008-2012 era sweet is back upon us. Lets share coordinates, discuss the differences in how the style is worn now vs back then, and what we like/dislike about iit

What is Deco-Lolita?
>A crossover between decora fashion and lolita fashion that gained popularity around 2007
>Usually involves a large amount of accesories, occasional colored wigs, layering and use of toys as props or accessories

What is OTT Sweet Lolita?
>A sweet lolita coordinate worn to it's most dressed up potential
>Gained a lot of popularity around 2010.
>Usually involves heavier makeup, use of a wig or very full hair
>Usually involves a "full" coordinate worn as a set, OP or JSK

What is the difference?
>The main difference is that Deco-lolita involves higher levels of accessorization and color coordination. Deco-lolita is also older.

COVID-related cosplaying and cosplay after COVID
corona
Sup /cgl/
As a cosplayer that I am, I am predicting that, when events come back, there will be a great influx of nods, parodies, or things related to our very own COVID-19.

I would like to discuss with you people some things:

When events come back, what will be the dynamics? Will we need to disinfect our costumes after each day of events? How many people will be allowed to enter events, and how big will they be?

And more related to Corona-chan/other costumes directly related to them (like Hazmat personnel): Will the community accept these characters? Will a person be able to cosplay Corona-chan without getting shunned publicly for 'sexualizing something that caused death and suffering' or something like that?

Thank you in advance.

I miss cons
1558216253929
This lockdown is really getting to me. I'm 22 and cons are, or were, my main method of socializing and hooking up with people. Most of my friends were people I met at cons, I used to like to go to at least one a month. Even had a Jynx cosplay from League planned out. I miss:

>The group cosplays
>My friends, who are scattered around the country
>Hooking up with hot guys (I only match with ugly dudes on Tinder, whereas at cons I can do way better for some reason?)
>The raves
>The drugs at the raves
>The room parties and naughty shit we all got up to there
>Just meeting random people and having a great time

(Mariposa luz de la luna) Chouzuki Maryou: Recent cosplay
_MG_4350s
Chouzuki Maryou is BBW model from the Philippines who lives in Japan and does erotic cosplay. Her original claim to fame was cosplay of Cattleya that started making the rounds in 2009 so she is well established and in her early 30s by now.
Here is the most recent gallery on e-hentai that was put up today: https://e-hentai.org/g/1650177/05dac2b15d/
And one that was made later with the permission of the hentai artist Kotoyoshi Yumisuke who even does fan-art of her to get you aquatinted with her style: https://e-hentai.org/g/1595128/825d622fae/

There has been a semi-organized effort on e-hentai to collect unpublished Roms of her. Does anyone here know of a way to help out? What do you think of her? And so on. BBW models rarely have mass appeal but she has been doing this for over a decade and hast almost 100.000 Twitter followers.

The Lolita "rules" and how they've changed
lolitafashion11
Inspired by discussion happening in other threads, there is some talk about the Japanese interpretation of the lolita "ruides" or guide versus the western.

For example, 10 years ago a newbie lolita might have been told to avoid black/white, cat ears and striped socks even though those are all common staples in the lolita fashion, and not elements that automatically make an outfit not lolita.

Are there any guides on the lolita look from magazines or Japanese resources?

Do you or have you ever lightly cosplayed in public? i.e wearing an outfit based on a character but adapted more to a modern clothing style, involving similar colors or light leitmotifs.

So, accurate cosplay is now considered racist. What the fuck is happening to cosplaying? Why the fuck are people who never read the original material calling this racist in the first place?

Male Cosplay Makeup Basics
DC813AAD-5DC3-4A1A-90E6-E271903EBF1D
So, I’m a dude who enjoys cosplay. I’m clueless about makeup for the most part, but I know that it usually comes with the territory, even if it’s a human character. When photos are taken of me in cosplay but without makeup, some Dorian Gray type shit happens and my skin always makes me look like a corpse. As such, I will sometimes attempt to correct that, but due to my lack of knowledge in the field, I don’t really know what to use.

What are some makeup products that people view as necessities for any cosplay? Doesn’t have to be anything specific like body paint, just stuff that broadly applies to most characters even if the character doesn’t wear makeup canonically.

pic related it’s what people’s skin invariably ends up looking looking like regardless of whether they have acne or not

Male lolita here, so I have a story I need to vent. I matched with this lolita on Tinder a while back, she was so pretty, exactly my age (21) and I had strong feelings for her. I complimented her on her coord. She was surprised that I knew what that was. We talked a while, she seemed interested and talkative, I was happy. Then she didn't respond for a while, and I embarassingly sent her a few angry desperate heartfelt messages blatantly confessing my love for her. I felt so embarassed afterwards that I unmatched from her, I couldn't handle the embarassment. I regret that.

To this day I regret that. We could've been something. I'm posting here in the likelihood that she uses /cgl/. Are you there?

I have a sewing machine and all. I’m not comfortable sharing a photo(I’m a new user) but I have the DR3 outfit. I don’t have the tights but I’m thinking about painting it.
For my wig I used an old black one that I used on halloween before I got into cosplay and brushed out and straightened yarn as wefts. The horns aren’t on a headband but actually a part of the wig using cardboard.
Mostly, I need accessories. Any favorites of yours? Preferably on amazon(and affordable, of course). I’m still pretty new to cosplay too.
Hope this fits on this board.

getting questionable stains out of a dress?
6d822dc7-a846-4d34-a869-e0fd4af765bf
I really didn't want to ask because I know I'll cop shit but how do you get cum stains/smell out of a lolita dress? I have a sax sugary carnival that got coated with it and I've tried everything gentle I could find online. I think it's not coming out because I didn't notice it till awhile after it had dried.
I could get some out after the first wash but there is bits stuck in the seams of the bow.
I don't want to use anything harsher since I don't want to ruin the print. Is there any way to salvage this? It's my favourite dress.

>inb4 you shouldn't have had sex in it in the first place
I know I shouldn't have really but my boyfriend really wanted to do it so I let him on the promise that he not touch the dress but he thought it'd be more inline with our roleplay that he not listen to me and now it's fucked.

So a guy invited me go with his group to a con in Germany. Obviously it has been canceled because of Corona but it still piqued my interest and I hope it'll still be held in September. Not gonna lie my main motivation is to go to meet some girls and party hard with people who actually share my interests instead of randoms in techno clubs. The people I go with will go for a cosplay and I'm thinking about also doing so. But I've never dressed up like that and I'm a bit insecure.

What do you recommend for a first timer? Do I try to make a costume myself or I should I go for a premade one? What are some things I should be aware of concerning picking a cosplay and cons in general.

I'd be really glad if you could point me in some direction since I'm really looking forward to this.

Witch Coords

Because of the novel coronavirus, the witch tea party in Nagoya has been canceled. However, people are invited to "attend" by posting their witchy looks between May 10th and May 24th, using the hashtag #名古屋魔女集会2020. People from all over are invited to "attend" even if they are not from Nagoya. According to the guidelines, which I will link below, flatlays or coords without your face are okay, but cosplay is not welcome.

Please enjoy these coordinates from this virtual witches' gathering.
