• 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.

Oh the beauty that is Sonic cosplayers. :')
My aunt went to a writers convention a while ago and she is on an email list for the other people that went, and this one guy talks about cosolay and how amazing mlp is and shares his fan fiction, that was why i asked, but i mean, i have only met one brony who wasnt a complete disgrace to nature.
I wonder what Chris(tine)'s thoughts are on this.
That's not sonic, newfriend.
Actually it's pretty average. I've probably seen 2000 FFX-2 Rikku cosplayers in my time and this is pretty par for the course. I've seen some horrific ones and some really excellent ones. After awhile, everything blends together. When someone points out something pretty average and not downright terrible it's pretty nitpick anon. There's plenty of material out there and you choose the average "Sarah" from last weekend's "Whatevercon" Pretty nitpick if you ask me.

I have a question about coats.
I covet the detailed coats that AP's come out with but I'm a busty thwomplita and would never fit them.

other then MAM and Restyle, (and godawful hellbunny) can anyone rec some beautiful indie brands that make lolita coats?
outerwear options are really lacking for plus-sized girls, especially beautifully crafted ones.
I appreciate any suggestions!

Overall good, but the random costume jewelry chains and watch lanyards are distracting. Maybe if they were higher quality and uniform.

Cool, but hate the boots with giant fuckoff grommets

At most she sends an email to cons with her info to be booked. Which is exactly what a lot of cosplayers do who want to be convention guests. In fact that is what most guests in general do, spam the hell out of whoever is in charge of guest relations. Though I'm pretty sure she submits through whatever conventions setup for panels too.

I have met her before and the girl is stupid polite. I don't think she will make it to Japan by any stretch due to how Japan IS, but I will give her credit for trying. At least she actually sings rather than just lip syncs like the million "idol" groups do.
I don't know who Stefan is but i'm sorry you think she's actually talented.

If you're that hung up on it you could always try yourself? I don't really care what she does if I don't want to hear her I won't go to her concert or whatever.
So did she or someone else crush your weeby aidoru dreams? There are so much worse wannabe aidorus out there, too.

Sounds like a plan.

Lots of stress within the past year that built up and exploded. That and I'm surrounded big people (I live in one of the fattest areas of America) and it made my phobia of gaining weight/being obese worse. All I've ever wanted was to be someone's tiny, cute waifu.
Just open it up and see if anything looks noticeably fucked.
I had this moment at a party where I was drinking with a few folks, and in the middle of asking myself ; 'What do I do about this problem?' A person told me to keep drinking.

At that moment I got super disgusted, because I realized that drinking didn't solve shit for me. It only made it worst.
So, I looked into new study methods and asking myself, 'why did it get this bad.'

Like, I'm a much different guy now than who she met three years ago. Which is probably why I began to appreciate her much more now, than I did then.

But the short answer is pretty much - Will Power to change and being extremely aware that the people I was in company with were toxic.

Old Thread autosaged >>9232909

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

>/cgl/ makes it seem like male oujis or aristos aren't really welcome unless they're someone's boyfriend/husband.
male ouji here, had 0 friends in the scene and was nobody's SO when i joined. members of my comm like me anyway, enough to seek my company outside of comm meets. you may not be welcome by every single member, but nobody is liked by everybody.

/cgl/ amplifies dissenting voices and can make rare opinions seem common. it is the nature of the beast

>you may not be welcome by every single member, but nobody is liked by everybody.
additionally, some members may seem to dislike you at first. newbies often feel left out, and men especially might need to attend a few meets before connecting. it is likely that, even if you are sincere and non-creepy, it may take time for members to warm up to you. don't make a big deal out of your maleness and don't be flirty during meets, just be chill as you can and friendly.

what kind? curvy? short? large breasts? need some feminine-shaped ouji inspo? what substyle do you like (classic, gothic, sweey)?
*sweet, obviously

another feminine ouji silhouette
and a feminine casual aristocrat silhouette in the "homme" style

these 3 are just examples, lemme know what your ideal look is and i probably have or can find more.

>babbling nonsense
As a brolita this is rather representative of what i feel. But it does lead to so much self rejection. I feel like everything comes down to if i pass or not. And that's very hard to judge.

I dream of being able to join a comm and being "one of the girls". But due to this huge emphasis on passing, i dont even dare to try. I understand that many girls are skeptical though. I hate being into lolita, but i just cant leave it.
girls don't even pass man.
almost everyone has received the "is that a man???" comment.

just try to look your best for you. if your reflection makes you smile then you're doing it right.
coord well, do hair and make and you should be fine. don't stress.
I wish I could join a comm with you just to encourage you and geek out over pretty clothes and shit.

Yay, another one of these threads!

Lolita Lempicka L'eau en Blanc (pictured) and L'Artisan Parfumeur Drole de Rose. Both are amazing powdery scents. Bought L'eau en Blanc for the bottle because it was cheap, but then I fell in love with the scent itself.

Lavanila has a single note vanilla perfume, iirc.
Demeter Angel Food Cake, Marshmallow, and Vanilla Cake Batter
Tokyomilk Let Them Eat Cake and Sugar Sugar
Prada Candy
Viktor & Rolf Bonbon

I have a sample of this and can only smell sugar, or I'd help you out with suggestions.
I just got a sample set and I love every single scent. I was about to recommend then in this thread but see you dis the honors.
So does anyone have a specific perfume they like wearing with a specific print? We always talk about scent and sub style but I'd love details about what you like to pair.

One of my favorites is vintage Opium with Moitie's Cathedral print, which is probably weird but what do I care

I wear Demeter's Paperback with AP's Bookmark print. I'd like to wear it once I got JetJ's Bibliotheque.

You have a suspicion, but they're either bothering you or they're not. If they are, make sure you have good evidence to prove why you told them to fuck off in case it comes to bite you in the ass. If they're not, don't worry about it?
Keep being nice to them. Its business. If they ask you then be honest with them, but theres no reason to turn down business on a hunch.
A lot of customers I have are just awkward and come off as flirting when they aren't. And honestly whatever. If they ask you on a date or for your number you can politely turn them down. Otherwise give 'em the benefit of the doubt that they aren't flirting. And honestly, a little bit of flirting isn't so bad to deal with.
Ugh, I have a customer that gets real thirsty at my table whenever I go to cons without the bf. I just try to keep a professional distance and don't ever let up on it. Get stone cold and make the situation awkward for him/her if you need to.
Treat them like anyone else. I try to treat my regulars nicely.

that sounds extremely excessive. Nothing wrong with having a crush on someone or flirting.

I don't dress in lolita and I immediately cringed at those shoes. And then the rest of it.
Autist here. I'm a cis woman, but there's also just a general dysphoria that comes along with the territory, like your body is wrong but you can't say how exactly. Currently a lot of shitty communities are pushing the whole "Body feels wrong? Clearly you're trans!" thing, so people wondering why they feel this way latch on to the first "answer" they get when really the autistic fakebois need to realize that most of them aren't trans and just need to make their peace with the fact their body will always feel wrong.
I have a form of autism and I can confirm that the way my brain works is neither typically "male" or "female" (in regards to functions like problem solving) but this has basically no impact on my gender.
intersex has to do with sex. the only problem comes when genderspecials try to make people like me be "teh differents so trans" just because of my internal biology. its like telling a butch lesbian she has to be a boy.
