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

I hate this crimping fad that umbra has started. Sure it adds volume but at what cost

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.

Squeakadeeks/Squeakadeekn guilting his followers into being his therapist. How can he not find a single counseling service to talk to? There's dozens.
Aliexpress is good enough quality imo

Even Yaya Han is doing a bad job with the crimping
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.
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

Anon Jessica has no talent even if she makes her own stuff now. At least with Yaya and Kamui you can recognize what they're cosplaying and see the quality. This is supposed to be a tauntaun.
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.

And she won the lawsuit because they stole her design to create their own molds. They even admitted it.
I know it's a national pastime for old cosplayers to shit on Yaya, but come on. I remember this rumor too that Yaya was going after poor widdle artist alley artists, but the actual case was about stealing product and molds like >>201239
said. We aren't in 2008 anymore, you can easily find the facts now.

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.
File: 1648593177609.png (163.76 KB, 1156x452, bunnysuitpatternsizing.png)
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
Now stop shitting up the thread with your wking.

Yaya's said she's had to alter her own commercial bodysuit pattern before to fit her because of McCall's. And multiple people had the same problem with the bodysuit pattern having too much ease: https://thegeekyseamstress.com/2015/10/16/pattern-review-m7217/https://sewing.patternreview.com/review/pattern/122754
McCall's dropped the ball on sizing with her patterns just deal with it.
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.

is anybody else annoyed by this chick? she made such a big deal out of becoming a professional cosplayer even though she doesn't make real costumes and now is begging on Kofi because she didn't have a business plan.

God yes. Lizard Leigh was already intolerable from their constant shilling of this Steven Universe transformation dress. Its now worse since they've made a huge deal about becoming a pRoFeSSiONaL cosplayer. Most of their videos are fake shocked Pikachu faces, begging for Kofi donations or gender zoomer content like pic related.
Lol well if she’s not making money from it, she’s not really a professional cosplayer is she?
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

Because you want craftsmanship advice from someone whose wig looks like this
How can you be in the hobby for this long and not watch a single YouTube tutorial on wig styling?
Also why tf does her skin look so oily? I could maybe understand looking like that at the end of the day, but this is very clearly a photo taken in the hotel room right before heading to the con floor
