Anyone else in this shitty place but having fun at cons? Anime Festival and Anime friends look nice, together with the many gaming cons people cosplay at. Where are you and which conventions you went to this year and plan to go?

Do you cosplay? Pictures of local cons are welcome

>shitty place
not a nice way to start a general thread, friendo.

But no, I dropped anime/manga cons a while ago, but I still wear cosplays with my friends for photoshoots. Game conventions, though, are nicer.

I've done armor commissions for people before, but I'm never gonna let on I browse here. It's just an invitation for the salt to find it's way to my cosplay page and possibly lose followers for it.

Just browse Instagram and Facebook for cosplay pages, especially ones that mention commissions.

There used to be fairly regular commission threads as well as activity threads (birthing of derpy, what are you wearing today threads, ita dresshps..)
I had my worst commission experiences on other websites, while anyone that I picked up on 4chan knew there shit, and if they didnt or didnt complete commissions in a timely enough manner were laughed out by the community

Perhaps I'm just an oldfag and this thread was a silly idea.

I'm 29 and in a relationship with an 18 year old girl, a cosplayer. She loves the hobby but I've always had this phobia about attending a con with her because I feel like other people would make comments and I'd be judged.

Are cons that judgemental an environment?

I don't know why I know it desu. Why do we know Japanese couples shower before sex? I've never been to Japan but I know it. White women who get a black boyfriend are actually surprised at how clean they are compared to white men. Not all black people obviously, but in my culture it's very normal that when a man feels like he might about to have sex, he will "go to the bathroom" and quickly wash himself.

Saw this picture in a /fa/ meme thread and was wondering, would you wear lolita to a first date with someone you've met online and who might not know much about it?

Like rick owens in the picture, lolita might be a bit weird to someone not familiar with it, but then again if you were to go on a second or a third date it's going to come up eventually and if they're creeped out by it chances are they're not very compatible with you anyways. How do you feel about this?

I also need to chat for a while before meeting up in person with someone, so I guess it would be hard for the person to meet me without knowing what Lolita is.

But, down for your question, I guess it depends on where we are going for a first date.

Depends, I would completely understand someone not being comfortable with the extra attention for a first date so I would at least talk to them about it beforehand. However if it's a deal breaker I wouldn't date them in the first place. I already can't wear lolita at my workplace, I don't want to be deprived of it in my spare time too.

A lot of girls who dress like sluts behave badly and poison the well. For example, one of my friends went to cons in cosplay that barely covered more than a bikini would, and she was routinely cheating on her boyfriend. Guys have to protect themselves somehow. It's similar to a girl finding a gangster hot but expecting him to be abusive.

As for rude comments, what would you do when other girls insult you, which girls do to each other all the time? Ignore them or insult them back.

Hey guys, I'm about to cosplay for the first time and I'm slowly gathering the materials I need. I already have an ear-piercing.

Since JoJo doesn't have any color palhettes and my suit will be BLUE, which ear piercing would fit the blue palette?

The toy uses a yellow piercing in the blue suit. The anime which Giorno uses mostly the pink suit it's green if I recall correctly.

I'm between options 1, 2 and 3 and I suck at color theory. I want to make something beautiful. Thanks in advance.

P.S.: Using my thread for another question - this is an anonymous board, but can we post pictures of ourselves in cosplay here or is it a ban?

Dear /cgl/.

Im amateur photographer than works hard to be better. I like making cosplay pictures and sharing them with models, usually for personal satisfaction but also to give something to the community and it's really nice to see somebody made happy by good picture. Therefore, I want to learn what kind of photo editing most cosplayers want.

I wanted to ask you then, what do you expect from photos you receive? What kind of edits cosplayers like? Intense colors or more realistic? Bloomed or more contrast? Full body or dynamic close up?

Thanks for any replies!

>> No.10241721


To be honest, when I asked at /p/, one professional cosplay photographer said that my post processing is either none or amateur so before I start to dig in more, I wanted to understand target audience better. Myself, I don't like too much changes and prefer to setup everything at the moment of photo shooting and do slight corrections like cropping or noise removal later but at the same time cosplayer themselves might expect stuff like blooming or skin smoothing.

Normally when I sent photos (or link to them as I usually upload to my own site - I don't have FB/IG) via email, I rarely get replies so I assume they didn't went out as expected.

If you know the series and character, I'd recommend doing it based on that.
Intense character? Intense lighting and contrasts. Bubbly character? Bloomed and less realistic. That being said this is a lot of effort for obscure shows, but a quick Google search + visual cues from the cosplay itself would be great.
Naturally, you should also ask the person as well.

>> No.10241779

i would say look at photos you like and try to incorporate what you like about them into your own style. from working with cosplayers myself i find that most like a variety of up close and full body, maybe some detail shots. i always ask them what they want to show off about the cosplay if its something they've made

>> No.10241780

you should also really make an instagram. when cosplayers are happy with the pics they'll link back to your account! then you'll know whats working and maybe get some more clients!

>> No.10241786


Okay then. I mostly shoot at cons so far, never had personal session before and most models were nervous and many surprised that somebody want to make their photos. With very few had actual longer conversation about what they want to do and it turned out visibly better than other pics.


Sadly, when I tried making IG, account got blocked right away after creation. I didn't had a chance to enter any info, except than (real) name and surname and email at creation itself. Didn't receive email about making account either. IG didn't respond to any form of contact about this matter either.

I know that they are trying to fight with fake accounts but this is simply not fair.

Did you have a lot of fun at the con? If so, it’s probably post con blues. The come downs are especially nasty after a really good time.

Did you not have fun, and wished you put yourself out there more and made the most of your time? Possibly post con blues.

If you had a typical amount of fun, maybe it’s real depression. Good luck with the job hunt!

It was pretty fun this year, I'm a bit surprised and sad at how much I liked wearing the new cosplay since I only wore it for a day and won't be able to wear it again anytime soon since I intended for this to be my last con for the year. I guess the con was a nice breath of fresh air that I really needed at the moment but now that it's over it's back to trying to deal with the same frustrating things that drain me on a daily basis. Thanks though anon, I really appreciate it. Hopefully I'll get something soon.
