View Full Version : LoliPOP Guild

07-13-2009, 03:32 PM
Okay, before I get started let me just say that I have no idea if this belongs here or in Cosplay, so if this is the wrong place, please move it, great and mighty moderators.

A friend of mine and I, as a couple of you know, are big into cosplay and the whole "gosurori"/"gyuru" scene. Essentially, what I'm wanting to do, is see what people think about putting together a sort of club or group or something to that effect. Eventually I hope to express the art to America in a grand way.

Just to clarify, what I'm looking for are opinions, advice, and people who are interested. Please don't post answers like "That's dumb" or anything like that.

Lol lolipop. I have called people that be4.
Good idea.

Well I was having a conversation with Murasaki and he goes "Lolipop Guild." I looked at him and he adds, "Emphasis on the loli."

I started laughing really hard and then I got this idea. ^^

One could start with providing cosplay pictures to go to motivate others

Wow I think its a good idea, tho I'm a little bothered by the loli part. Tho if there is a way for me to help I'd like to know how.

Umm I am not sure what gosurori or gyuru means. Is that something like gothic lolita? I like the Frilly dresses and all I think its really cute*sucker for most things cute* I'd totally be in for it.

That's exactly what gosurori is! It's a cognate. Pretty much "goth loli". ^^

So it's EGL (Elegant Gothic Lolita) then. May as well call it that o_o;

Whatever floats your boat. ^^

Alrighty, I'm going to start by taking some of Diet Chicken's (haha, PolloLight, I made a funny) advice and post some pictures that myself and friends of mine have done. Perhaps I'll spur something. ^^

woaa... now I know how does gothic lolita look like ^^

08-11-2009, 10:42 PM
Ah so I see, well so far I'm still liking the idea. Hit me up if there is someway you feel that I might be of help

Weeeell, lessee. First I think we need to develop a base of people that are interested and can actively participate. After that, it should just be a matter of planning and coordination. See who can do what costumes, etc, and go from there.

Ah, so the goal is to get more people that are interested, then planning, and after that we work on the things that need to follow. OK cools

interesting...so how would a man partake in this? do we get to be the butler entourage to a gang of hot goth girls? each man equipped with a fanny pack, complete with water bottles, folding fans, and spare mascara for the girls

I love you...

Nah, I've seen some pretty wicked men dressed up at Harajuku, too.

Okay so i thought up and sketched out a costume idea for myself. Let me know if its fitting with the theme. the face paint doesnt take my hair into account. i'm also not sure if the eyebrows and beard should be white. making the eyes pure white would be easier than pure black, as going black means custom contacts to cover the entire eye.

anyway, any suggestions or criticisms are more than welcome

rofl. Wingtip shoes ftw. Dispite your rudimentary drawing skills, I can picture this and I like it. ^^

08-24-2009, 08:04 PM
lol drawing skills ftw! cool, glad i was kind of able to grasp how the concept would extend to men. i've never done cosplay of any sort before, so i'm eager to give this an honest shot

You're probably referring to the lolita culture.

Lolita doesn't equal to cosplay. o_O Lolita is a separate subculture on its own.

Females can go for... EGL ( Elegant Gothic Lolita )
The line for men is likely EGA ( Elegant Gothic Aristocrat )

There are quite a lot of rules of this culture's clothing to be talked about, too.
