this applies to male cosplayers as well. They are lacking in this even more so than women
why cant the picture attached represent the average cosplayer? it just seems like most cosplayers suck at their craft >12% of cosplayers at a convention are "good" >out of that 12%, 90%+ are women >out of those women, 85% are e-girls (not genuine and an overall negative contribution to the community) >out of men, 50% of them have a good cosplay because their armor was professionally done by someone >with the exception of like 2 dozen men in Asia, virtually no man can pull off a good cosplay as a female character it might be because I'm sick of fat hook-nosed slobs thinking they're the shit, but we really need to raise the standards of cosplay. this can be done through proper education (offer more instructional resources, host more panels related to the subject) as well as fostering an environment that can create better cosplayers .similar to how anime fans are also likely into video games, we can also get them into anime/Japanese related fitness/healthy eating. (these 2 exist to some extent but are still quite niche.) just as we can make an economy better by making its citizens richer, we can do something similar with the cosplay/egl community.
**hobby, not slobby
It doesn't have to be lake that tho. There can be a more balanced bell curve
Wish I can sell them in a lot, I don't know where to advertise. I don't have a Facebook presence if that's a popular platform nowadays. It'd have to be local, shipping is a disaster in my area right now.
The bell curve in cosplay is no different from any other hobby. People often equate being average with being of middle quality, but in reality, the average cosplay is going to be mediocre at best. Just because most cosplayers aren’t on par with cherrypicked Russian e-thots with daddy’s mafia money, that does not by any means indicate that cosplayers are inherently less skilled on average in comparison to other hobbies. There’s no such thing as a “more balanced” bell curve; the inherent social nature of cosplay just makes the disparity between good and bad cosplayers infinitely more visible.
Idk why 4chan shows so much jealous to foreign cosplayers. Most of the russian cosplay scene would barely even be middle class by American standards of income.
One thing russia does have over america it's the same thing asia has over Ametica. Is Cosplay is done as a group effort. If I'm an amazing photographer with vogue magazine level skills I set up the photoshops, my friend is beast with props, she makes the props. I got another friend who can style the hell out of wigs and make up etc. These groups come together and form a team called " cosbands" . The level of content put out by some of these teams are almost on par and sometimes actually do surpass film studios .
Yet russia has cosplay thots but none of the girls in Anerica are doing photoshoots on the level of janeyincosplay or the top russian girls. For all the money Jessica nigri makes she never has stuff like real wolves and bears in photoshoots, never does shoots in real castles , ships, monasteries , in the actual desert . American cosplay shoots are so boring and pedestrian while on the high end in russia and china cosplay photos often are magazine quality and look like mini fashion shoots.
Just because American cosplay scene doesnt value collabzrtion, team work and good photography/ set design like we do in other countries doesnt mean you got to be a hater .
Recently witnessed some drama between a cosplayer I follow and an IG account that posted comparisons between photos of her irl versus the photos she posts.
Drastic difference and it got me thinking how much photoshop is too much?
This and alot of the photo shop in this thread doesnt look good. Do anime fans not realize most ppl outside tge anime community find the real life anime character thing odd looking .
Not exactly ugly but definitely hits the uncanny valley .
I feel like the anime community is way to isolated . Like guys I know in real life often think these cosplay pics hit into creepy territory. Then again its aim at an otaku audience the men I know aren't into cosplay. If they like photoshopped pic it would look more like jessica nigri photoshop instead of this weird ass make my head, chin ,nose smaller tyoe shit these asian girls are doing.
Also the photo shop gives a weird child like element to their face unless you find asians attractive its quite off putting .
White men are the only group to think asians are super beautiful. To me most of this shit looks weird and isn't attractive at all.
Those boobs are way too hard-looking and aren't saggy.
And reading what I am writing again, it is impressive to see how my expertise on looking and loving all shapes and colors of titties has finally helped me on something in my life.
>>10435304 >White men are the only group to think asians are super beautiful.
That's where you're wrong, kiddo.
Every race does.
t. Mexican who wants that lightskin qt Korean gf and avoids those Yalitza brownies.
Lmao literally, it's the same exact perfect tone all around the chest but her face and neck are totally different in colour and texture, no one seems to have pointed it out on tiktok or instagram tho...
Lol most latinos like curvier women maybe not Mexicans since most mexican women have awful shapes lol.
In Brazil, Argentina etc the women actually gave hips and asses. You probably are a nerdy white washed Mexican because east asians are no where close to the beauty standard in Latin america lol

Bootlegs are never OK to buy and use, don't be a poorfag.
Actually, maybe not that similar but I’m glad theres potential to have more bags that are vaguely like it.
I'd rather a white one than beige/green, I don't know many anime characters with beige as their main color
The Animal Crossing one is NOT true to colors. I saw her post it on her Facebook page. I’m worried the other will be like that. She didn’t seem to think it was big deal the colors weren’t true to picture so I’m iffy.
This is really cute for a kpop bag
Post your corona coordinates.
Then contribute some good coords instead of whining?

Wow, this is actually playing near me in whitby. I guess I should go see it.
Fyi the JCCC is having their annual bazaar on Saturday May 2nd. It's a good event if you're shopping for Japanese goods, plus admission is free.
Does anyone know if they sell wigs at anime north?
They do. Dunno if they're good wigs or not, but I've def seen multiple wig sellers in the dealer's room.
Arda has had a booth there in the past and IIRC you can place an order through their website but arrange to pick up the wig at the con (as long as you order through Arda Canada). Ask them?
IW is rereleasing their Annette series again, this time with a new colorway. Thoughts?
It looks like they close the 13th of May for good, not the 23rd. They're closed the 17-23 of this month for renovations however.
>tfw you'll be in Paris on the 11th and can actually make it
keep doing what ur doing but in cold water
Some people from the French comm are planning on going on May 6th.
It's literally on y!ja right now, check the dream dress thread.
i almost was a seller who lost waist ties. What I did was I put all my waist ties on a hanger so that way they wouldn't get all wrinkled: but I needed the hanger so I put something over it (an ugly body line blouse). Cue to me frantically tearing apart my wardrobe looking for it in all my boxes and drawers because I only remembered that one of my waist ties came in a plastic baggie folded nicely and I kept them in there.
Seen a lot of scary on IG lately
*for people to be. Curse my autocorrect.
ITT: everyone who posts bad or overdone shoop is a vendetta-chan
that's how it works, right?
How dare you point out that a girl who is overshooped uses photoshop? Must be vendetta. Disgusting.
this is just purikura tho
realizing that i'm way late to the game, but just wanted to say thanks for the concrit, this was very helpful. i was wondering whether to touch up her eyes or not but i figured i'd make them more even at least, should've been more careful with the liquify tool. you sound like a pro, anon, nice eye.
Last one died so here we are again.
Less than a week until Perth Comic Con and 2 until Adelaide's. Is your cosplay ready? Are you even going or has Doomtitty's appearance thrown you off?
At least not for Anime.
Wai-Con's dead, and has been for years, and MadFest is trying to step into that spot, but they failed miserably this year.
