Tell me about your lolita comms, /cgl/. Do they host nice meet ups, or do you end up in Mc Donalds/Subway? Do you have a lolcow or a creeper?
I'll start: My comm is quite divided, and thank god I'm part of the well dressed and most sane one. Well, kinda, since it's not really a comm but a group of ladies that host private meets and have in general a great time. The "official" one is a hot fucking mess, full of itas; the admin is the worst, looks like a refrigerator in a dress, can? wear make up correctly, wears fedoras (?). She also loves vampires and draws shitty recolors of "goth girls" The other comm is full of weebs and noobs that aren't exactly there to learn, but to complain how "they don't have money to buy all that brand/parents won't let them go to meets-buy me lolita pieces/can I go with my mom?? It's hell.
Now it's your turn!

reverse nose contouring?

Hey folks, I have a makeup question. Pretty straightforward--I have a very high nose bridge, and it unfortunately creates a shadow on either side of my nose from the inner edges of my eyebrow down sides. I understand that most nose contouring basically tries to recreate this look, but I'd like to do the opposite. It makes my nose look a lot larger than it actually is and draws attention away from my eyes and mouth, which I actually like :C Tips/guides/tutorials on how to make my nose bridge look "flatter" or more blended in with the rest of my face? So far I've gathered that I should basically use highlighter/paler foundation on the sides of my nose, but there's not much out there else to go on. Thanks!

We all started somewhere! Let's see some of those first cosplays you ever did.
I realize no one else is going to want to be the first to show off a bad pic of themselves when they were starting out, so I'll go first:
It was 2006, and there was a group looking to do a Sin City cosplay group. Back then, I didn't know how to sew, put on makeup, or, really do anything right. Yet, I decided to be Kevin.
And this is what happened. Bad haircut a few days before, and no wig, of course. Shirt sewn together by an aunt, and then I ironed on the zigzag strip so badly that you could still see bits of the heat n'bond glue around the sides of it. The black and white plaid shirt underneath wasn't even a full shirt. I just attached the plaid bits around the collar and neck area and then around the cuffs of an existing white dress shirt I had. I didn't own a pair of black jeans, so I borrowed a pair from my dad, despite them being several sizes too big. And finally, dollar store glasses that I had painted white.
I have learned a lot since then.
