2019-08-19 New scrapers are in the progress of development, with promising results on /wsg/. On behalf of all archivers, unless Asagi is replaced, as 4chan grows we are all are in grave danger under the strain of deep software inefficiency and unsustainable costs (like fireden). More details here.
2019-08-18: Maintenance on S2 Full Image Server complete with a more stable setup. We may be able to scrape more boards if funding and more efficient scrapers are provided for expansion. Donations to our site would help in case of image storage failure.

raising the cosplay skill

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.

Too much photoshop

No.10417509 View ViewReplyLast 50OriginalReport
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?

Have you ever been so excited for a meetup or con only to wake up and discover it's that time of the month?
Have you ever started while at a con or meetup?
Do you still go dressed up and risk it, or do you just not bother?
Any horror stories? Any solutions?
Haven't seen a thread like this so why not
