Hi gulls, my HL arrived. Last time there was a replica thread there was some discussion about holy lantern replicas and I said I'd do a comparison since I owned one and people were interested in seeing the differences.
Honestly there is such little difference in the replica to the real thing. The fabric is almost identical. The replica has some discolouration on the white because it's old but design wise, it's almost an exact double. I think you would never really know it was different if not for the discolouration.
The only major difference I've noticed is that the white lace is similar but not as good looking. For me, that's the only thing that would really give away it's a fake. The lace on the bottom of the dress is pretty close to the real thing but just a little bit worse., however you wouldn't notice that much. The replica is a tiny bit lighter than the real thing but it's very close (the picture doesn't capture the difference very well). It could also be because it's old though.
The black pattern in the dress is flocky on both, as discussed in the previous thread.
All in all this is a really good fake. I'll upload a close up of both patterns side by side in my next post.

In the previous thread >>8965176 we talked about upcoming conventions, cosplayers we hate, cosplayers we love, and how we should actually hate everyone.
Also a warm welcome to all the white knights who got send here from Facebook because big old mean 4chan trash talked your favourite cosplayer. Feel free to try to bring a positive attitude here, but don't be surprised if your pleas to stop hating will result in even more hate. Like some Anon said >>8970252, the hate will never stop and you're better off focusing on constructive criticism, rather than random strangers who trash talk you.
Convention related stuff:
>Elfia takes place this weekend. To those who are going, have fun and feel free to discus Elfia or share some cosplay pictures afterwards.
>Abunai announced their new room policy. Hotel reservations are now handled by NH Hotels themselves, but before you can apply for a room you will need to have bought and fully paid your Abunai ticket. Rooms are given away "first come, first serve" and there is no garantee you will end up with a room. Also I don't believe Abunai does ticket refunds so prepare yourself for a lot of salty tears and tickets getting resold at a lower price.
>If I missed anything important, which I probably did, feel free to post it.
I'm also running out of images to start our threads with. Someone please post some good images for thread starters or the best cosplay the Netherlands have to offer.
