This thread is for discussion of any cosplay communities/fandoms/trends you find embarrassing or cringe outside of your average costhotery. Any talk of Patreon, Onlyfans, or generally skimpy cosplays should be taken to the Costhot thread. Every few months a new insufferable fandom or trend pops up and overtakes the cosplay landscape — let’s talk about some of the ongoing ones.

Current fandom examples:
>Genshin Impact
>My Hero Academia/BNHA
>Danganronpa
>JJBA

Current trend examples:
>cosplay tiktoks with bad lip syncing or shitty dancing
>paper wigs
>cosplayers covering themselves in glue and rolling around in garbage
>wigs so crimped they look deep fried
>drag style makeup for every character

Just say you don't know anything about lace wigs. Drag queens do have excess like this in big heavy wigs. This is basic shit they even teach you in drama class because you need more security when the hairline is receded. You just add more makeup or learn to blend well.

Thats not even scrapping the surface of the barrel with the crimped wigs that are seen on the regular. The technique isn't bad in it's self but it's not being taught or done properly. Crimping adds volume and should be combed out and covered with a layer of uncrimped hair and not crispy from hairspray or heat.

There isn't much quality control in this age of cosplay especially with zoomer cosplayers and even costhots. Theres more emphasis on 'being creative/differet' and all cosplay being valid than doing things properly.

is it weird that i kinda like this makeup as its own thing lol… but yeah wtf that wig is a nightmare. at least umbran's don't look frizzy like this.

but meh, "quality control in cosplay" has always been dicey, there's always been cringe low effort messy cosplay en masse, it's not really a "kids these days" kinda thing, the current bad cosplay trends are just a different flavor than the bad cosplay of previous eras. i do feel like nowadays a lot of the "good" cosplayers on tiktok aren't anywhere near the level of the good cosplayers of the 2010s though, a lot of the cosplayers tiktok worships are just in cheap lazy shit with some random edgy accessories and flashy makeup thrown in, so yeah i get what you're saying.

Even Yaya Han is doing a bad job with the crimping

No. 200915

>>200898
She's never been particularly good at a lot of cosplay related shit, but god forbid you said that back in the day and people called you vendetta-chan. She just knew who to schmooze, how to buy likes, and how to inflate her tits, but in person she always looked like a thai ladyboy and the quality of her costumes are shit. Its like people forgot what a fucking mess her burlesque snow white was without all the photoshop and strategic lighting.

No. 200923

>>200915
I think it's a bit of a stretch to word it like that because back when she rose to her original 'fame' was before instagram was even a thing and facebook was young. Her weird 2010's ego came from that. Not to say every cosplayer was ugly but tbh I feel like most early 200s 'big name' cosplayers werent lookers to begin with.

The issue comes from since then she's milked being a 'veteran big name cosplayer' to filth and having such a huge ego that she tried to make that 'Heroes of Cosplay' show make her seem like she was the best most famous cosplayer ever when her relevancy was already fading heavily at that point.

No. 200930

Yaya didn’t style the wig so judge the commissioner instead(sage)

No. 200981

>>200923
To be fair, she was one of the “big name” cosplayers back when there were very few. Before social media, you got famous by working cosplay.com, which she did, so you would get featured on the site that all the cosplayers were on. I’ve never seen her stuff in person so I can’t say how it looks without photoshop, but back in the day I don’t think she made her own costumes. At least that was the general word around the cosplay community

No. 200983

>>200898
To be honest, I think it kind of works for her. If someone like Moo or Umbran wore it, it wouldn't look that good, but the crimping suits her and doesn't stand out the same way that umbran's non-moving helmets look. The side bangs look terrible, but this wig isn't on Yaya at least. I think she used Wisperia one time, which she should go back to.

>>200923
She should have the ego she has though, tbh. She's helped mainstream cosplay, has actually put in the work to have her own line collab for fabrics, buttons, other odds and ins. She started really early with ears and worked that out of her garage. Like, Yaya is one of the very few cosplayers with skills and who's put in real work, that I say deserve to be considered a real celebrity. Costumers like her are well known within that realm outside of cosplay and it shows with people she's worked with. Now you have people posing nude, throwing on a wig, and just getting surgery for money. Yaya did look a little unfortunate in the chest area for a lot of the characters she wanted to cosplay. I don't considering a breast augmentation to be an issue either. She does good work too. Her, Nigri, and Kamui even though I know they can be argued, but compared to a lot of thots now, these three have completely gone the opposite direction with the fact that they actually still make their stuff. I just feel like unless it's builders like CBC or other.. names, idk right now, most cosplayers are so lazy now. Like look at >>195682 jesus

No. 200991

>>200983
Nigri was the one who started the costhot bs we have to deal with now. She got implants, sometimes threw on a wig, posed in her underwear, and called it cosplay. That and the possibly rigged contest is how she got famous. She still does all that. She hasn't even remotely gone in the opposite direction.

No. 200992

>>200991
Yes, but she actually builds stuff too. She isn't the same as someone like Momokun or Lori. She isn't a basic thot and hasn't really been one even though she kept with the same schtick. She's good at what she does, then you have sloppy seconds like Sushimonster and StellaLewds.

Thats not a big deal. She learned how to do stuff. Thats a massive step up from clown cosplayers. Compare any of Momokun's made outfits for her to Jessica's outfits of the same cosplays. There's a big difference between Jessica's thottery compared to a lot of other costhots. She mainstreamed it and she is still one of the better ones out there with quality and consistancy.

No. 200996

>>200992
Nigri's claim to fame was all on her ex boyfriend making her big builds. The majority of her old big builds that got her famous were not made by her. I used to be a fan of how dedicated she was to her exercise regime and fan interaction. Even though she's always been busted in the makeup department, she had fun shoots with good production quality. At this point, her body and shoots are mostly photoshop and do not reflect many real crafting abilities of her own.

No. 201109

>>201042
Then it's not because of cosplay, it's because she hated her body in an industry she worked in which is known for paying more well endowed women. And again, flat as a board. A lot of people feel good when they cosplay, actually looking good in it and filling it out, is probably something that was a nice bonus for her tits, but she did not set that bar. That was Jessica and simps and the fact that normies infultrated cons that have more of these girls attention. We slowly moved on to booth babes without booths.

No. 201157

>>201109
She absolutely did set that bar because Nigri was up her ass and they're still good friends. Nigri was also not well endowed and got bolt ons. I don't know if this thread was infiltrated by scrotes or old tripfags from 2013 /cgl/, but it was definitely a turning point in the scene and it was several factors. Neither yaya or nigri are innocent.

No. 201158

>>201157
It’s all these new cosplayers who started cosplaying in the mid 2010’s when you could buy an entire cosplay off of taobao with no work whatsoever and get your ass kissed if you’re cute. They weren’t around before Yaya or Nigri had implants, and only know them as costhots. Nigiri…meh, she’s a thot but she’s making some stuff. Good on her for making millions off s rites even if she isn’t really talented. Yaya though, she put in the work, she built her brand and was able to get deals for her patterns, fabrics and notions. Even if you want to argue that she’s a thot, she’s done quite a bit for the community as a whole if only that there are now cosplay specific patterns for things like schoolgirl outfits that had to be Frankensteined before

No. 201209

>>201157
No, you just never grew out of hating implants like a child. I don't gaf is someone has fake tits in cosplay, for the most part its how characters are drawn, but discrediting Yaya for literally helping make cosplay mainstream and outside of sword vendors that existed for props, she went out of her way to try to make accessories, that weren't just Party City cat ears, for the general con scene. Even Jessica puts in work and has for about 10 years now. At some point you gotta stop moving the goal post and realize that there are higher teir thots with real work. At least Jessica isn't just wearing lingerie anymore, she actually makes her stuff interesting and has done a lot of canon work too. You must mostly sound mad about cosplayers who put their sexuality on display, but your going after the wrong thots. Even these girls quality far outweigh basic costhots.

No. 201228

>>201158
Just to add, thots like CosplayDeviants getting the massive attention it did, headlines at certain conventions, real porn hoes like Envyus, Momokun, Chell, Stephanie Michelle, Succubus and Bunny.. There are legit girls to blame for the sexualization normalization of the modern cosplay girl, not Jessica or Yaya. They have their niches but I would never compare Jessica to a CD. Those girls were infiltrating cons, Tumblr, Facebook pages, Instagram, Twitter.. They made cosplay the sexualized market it is.

No. 201232

Who? Who had the better mass marketing and was able to use connections for the reach her merch got? The types of fabric ears sold on Etsy weren't even around at the time.

I know it's a national pastime for old cosplayers to shit on Yaya, but come on.

Ntayrt but I've made her bunny suit pattern for misses size 18, which should be a 40-inch bust. the finished garment for a D-cup has a 45-inch bust! It's really off their standard measurements and it makes me wonder how nobody at McCall's caught it.

considering how most people who would be making a bunny suit, outside of cosplay, would pad their bras to begin with, maybe pad your own or take it in. It's not that big an issue. You see someone on the front with a massive chest size outside normal women and you don't think twice about it maybe being a larger size? do you do the same with plus size specific patterns? lol

No. 203954

>>203947
A cup size is roughly an inch difference. Who do you know that's padding a D cup five cup sizes up? The model on the package wearing one size doesn't mean anything when the pattern has multiple sizes. Do you not buy clothes because the model wears a different size than you?

No. 204033

>>203954

Can you show the measurements since you clearly have them and post to everyone ITT what the sizes are on the actual pattern in her design? I would love, love, love to see exactly this 5" change because not a single damn person has said anything in all these years that I've seen these patterns available. You would think it would've been known already if she patterns catered to her tits and not just her being on the cover and editing her own pattern. I've typed in all sorts of renditions of "big" "too big" "bunny suit bust" and none of the reviews for this suit have any complaints about this random massive edit she has in this pattern because it doesn't exist. If you're going to talk out your ass to try and throw some vendetta at her, at least don't make shit up.

It's not vendetta to point out the pattern company fucked up. Their size chart says a size 18 is a 40 inch bust but the D cup on the pattern is 45. Even the A/B cup is 3 inches bigger. You even see multiple women here saying the size chart is off: https://sewing.patternreview.com/Patterns/78744

McCall's adds five inches of ease to literally every pattern. Same with the other big pattern companies. Only scrubs use back of the envelope sizing, it's never actually correct.

Yaya gave them patterns and they fucked them up because they don't understand the market and how corsets are supposed to work. Andrea Schewe talks about the pattern companies fucking with her designs all the time, too, this isn't a Yaya thing.

I wish all these clout chasers would realize that the people making money from cosplay are either selling something (books, tutorials, patterns etc.), selling nudes, doing commissions or they’re one of the few people that’s famous enough to do constant appearances (Yaya, Kamui etc. although most of them have other revenue streams as well). You’re not owed a career in your hobby just because you want it, either figure out a way to make something people want to spend money on or get a job like the rest of society. Liz probably thought sooner genderspecials would give her money for existing
