/cgl/ is a board for the following:

• Cosplay
• Lolita
• J-fashion
• Conventions & gatherings
• Sewing & prop-making
• Craftsmanship tools/materials & tutorials
• LARPing
• Discussing accessories such as wigs/circle lenses/prosthetics/makeup (These must be within the context of the board-related topics listed above; weight loss threads should be kept in /fit/, beauty and fashion generals should be kept in /fa/)

Our board rules are simple:

• Thread content must be related to one of the categories covered in the list above. Off-topic threads and replies will be deleted.
• Singling people out maliciously is not tolerated and will result in a ban. 4chan is not your personal army. The singling out rule applies to vendetta threads and replies being made to attack a specific person, as well as predatory behavior like doxing. Discussing an individual in general isn't against the rules as long as it's done within context of cosplay/lolita/j-fashion.

Well, it's almost always super awkward if it turns out someone strongly fetishises something part of your appearance. Atleast for me it makes me feel like it's the top quality I have and the person wasn't drawn to me because of my personality or even my looks but mostly because I'm their fetish. Appreceating alt girls is a totally different thing because most people wouldn't just settle for any alt girl they can get but it's rather a plus and preferred aesthetic. As a daily lolita yes it's a big part of me but there is so much more than that in me and I don't want my clothing choices to be in the center of the relationship.

>it's almost always super awkward if it turns out someone strongly fetishises something part of your appearance
are you asexual or something? Most people require someone to look sexually pleasing to want to date them.

Does anyone else get massively peeved when you get annoying customers who badger you about restocking an item for months on end, and when you finally restock it they basically ghost you until it's "sold out" again and then they whine about it?
>>
>>9974279
Before anyone asks, they had months to be able to get the item they want. Even if it was a high-demand item, I try to keep some quantity stocked in my store for a certain length of time, but I can't keep it there forever.

How do the most rich in lolita make their money? Does anyone follow any closely enough to know? I'm talking about the people who are buying $600+ dollar pieces, going around the world to various tea parties, buying the ultra expensive MTOs that range around a thousand or higher. I'm especially curious about the nouveau riche in China.

How do you paint your nails?

The lady in Ulta said I need to use a primer, base coat, polish, then top coat, but that seems like too many layers.

I though a primer and a case coat were the same thing. What's the difference?

Can I put on a base coat then a top coat with no actual polish between them?

Yes, I wear glasses. Thank you anon, I try these type of brushes.

>>9974516
>a primer, base coat, polish, then top coat, but that seems like too many layers
Sounds like the lady needs those sales. Just nailpolish with a top coat is enough in almost all cases, as long as you give your nails a break from time to time.
>>
>>9974516
I don't even do a base coat unless it's a color that's hard to take off since it takes longer to dry, just nail polish and top coat is fine.

I'm daily and I live in a country with winter lasting atleast a half a year so I have multiple. I have two short coats, two long ones and a cape. One of the long ones can be easily washed (they get dirty easy) and I mainly use the other one in "better" occasions. I would consider how easy do you need the cleaning to be, do you need a warmer one or would a short one do, do you need a collar or spesific material and lastly what's the design you like the most. It's easier to have few, mine are black and pink and it works for most of my wardrobe and the rest of it it's just doesn't .

>>9974517
I only own one and my criteria were these:

>Must be long
>Must match most of my wardrobe (e.g. not pastel)
>Must have a cape with a hood

I own a proper waterproof, goose-down parka for the particularly nasty days. I live in New England so I need to wear the parka for about half of winter season, and my AaTP coat is for days where it's not snowing/freezing rain. If I lived in the Mid-Atlantic (where I grew up) I'd probably own 3 or 4 brand coats but where I am now, it's not worth it to shell out the $ for outerwear that I can't wear often.

Old thread hit bump limit >>9715254

This thread is for ouji and aristocrat (aka "boystyle") discussion. "Boystyle" is shorthand for "boystyle lolita" and refers to the masculine counterparts of lolita and, often, aristocrat fashions. There is a lot of overlap between these styles, and different people use different terms to describe them. So, consider this a thread for those whose style is on the right half of Buttcape's Lolita Family Triangle: http://www.kawacura.com/moripress/wp-content/uploads/2015/06/0dmmLH6-350x350.jpg

Panels are boring, dealer rooms has only 2 booth selling real legal merch. Every other is selling bootleg and taobao clothing. 2 artists from artist alley has good art. Boring panels.
Not worth $60.
I also hate that it's located in the heart of time square. The crowds outside are tourists blocking all the sidewalk and gawking at the cosplayers.
If i was a cosplayer, i would charge the picture taking tourist.

lot of times cons have very little say in scheduling, as the hotels have events all the time. At best the hotel is like, these are the dates we got, pick one. They aren't exactly looking up other con dates to compete directly, unless you're Reedpop and trying to cash in on weeb money.

Also Flamecon and LCCC are two totally different crowds.

I'm a plus size lolita, what sort of measurements do you have?

Im pear shaped so thankfully my bust and waist are sort of normal which makes dress and blouse shopping more manageable.
But my ass/hips/legs are huge so finding bottoms (tights/pants/shorts/etc) is extremely difficult

My bust is about 96cm, waist about 80cm. I have my first ever taobao brand dress on preorder but Ive seen people larger than me wear it so I think it'll fit. So unfortunately I dont have much experience in actual dresses.

Dear Celine XL blouses almost always fit me. For dresses I'd recommend finding items around your measurements and if it has shirring than it'll probably work out. No shirring options for larger sizes are always risky, I wouldn't recommend
