>tfw barely own $20 worth of makeup
explains why i look terrible
It's not just the product you're using. Practice! Practice! Practice!
Makeup is one of those things where you pay for what you get. Shit is expensive, but worth it. Get the really cheap stuff when you start off so you can just practice. Over time you'll buy more expensive and better quality stuff and it'll add up. My Sephora card already has way over 500 points from this year alone.
practice atleast once a day for 4 months

I never said it excused shitty actions. Where are you pulling this from?

A bad or evil person is defined as being able to commit deeds they know are wrong without remorse or guilt. People with BPD aren't sociopaths, I feel horrible guilt everyday which extends to self-harm.

Legality has nothing to do with the morality of a person.

I have owned up to my actions. I face the reality of my actions everyday. When did I ever imply I didn't?

People are still posting in that? Ame was like a month ago now.
GDPR covers liability for data breaches where the breached party is found to not have taken appropriate security measures to protect user data. This would be the funniest end.
It was just Obayed trying to get people to pay attention to him as usual.

Hate to ruin the mood (I know we all want to see AL go up in flames), but as no real names are on the list (only badge names), it doesn't actually count as a GDPR breach........unless AL decide to put up a list of matching badge names and real names......then that would be different.

Also, a lot of gullible kids are actually consenting to being on the list too.

We're all going to have to find some other way to ruin their day. Mebbe someone can just go to Alcon wearing a wire or something.

He's not unpopular if you read the manga but I don't think the anime only baggers are going to appreciate my Fatboi when he arrives.
because if it is you got good taste anon
>series that has a bad name because of it's fandom
>not steven universe or voltron
My bet's on homestuck
homestuck hasn't had baggable merch until extremely recently tho
Not official merch no, but I have seen people make their own merch by ripping some art off of tumblr and slapping it onto buttons and things. Stickers too, so many ugly, dirty stickers

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.

Also, money related thread for burando in general and how you make it and money advice.

To be fair, they are actually able to order them at the exclusive tea parties. We have to pray we can line up a ss.
oh please.

She's saying it like, "But I do things! I volunteer and help people!!"
She was accused of being lazy because she has family money and doesn't need to work, and went on to explain she doesn't waste her days doing nothing. Reach harder.
I get where you're coming from but when you're rich enough, obstacles don't exist for you. They can pay people to shop at whatever teaparty in the world for them. Or buy it secondhand at any cost. They also don't seem to be bound by MTO 1 item per customer limits, either.

Out of curiosity don't you want to do something to enrich yourself and provide insurance against possible destitution? Later on in the thread you talk about helping older people. Since you have so many connections in the medical field isn't that an opportunity for you to do more? Family money can dry up in a second too. You worry me because you remind me of my cousin who also is from (lesser desu) family wealth and in the same situation - she's getting pushed out and her income from being a CNA isn't going to sustain her lifestyle. Might as well flex those connections and get into health admin or tech if you don't want to go the doctor/nurse route.

Yeah um. Animethon 25's finished and A lot of people had a lot of complaints.atleast in social media ive seen.

Complaints usually ranging from
1.Constantly breaking and changing direction escalator that are in constant use
2.A slow as hell elevator.
3.Lack of open space(Like long walks in between panels and such and just open space you get what I mean)
4.Nearly silent Card gaming and All of vidya in one hall (like about 3m between them)
5.Homeless people and Panhandlers everywhere and at anytime(Reportedly even at 9:30am)
6.The lack of any safety in downtown so anywhere outside the venue except for the river valley.

and my own personal complaint.
The fact that the news reported that Animethon had used every piece of equipment and room in the venue which if im estimating correctly means that they wont be able to expand.

So far though the only concrete Benefit ive seen is the AC

OP here

How to make this feeling go away?
Sorry, kids. This year's entire event sucked balls big time. The new venue is crap and Animethon is ruined forever.
Speak for yourself.
Naw, you and everyone else who thought it was good just have ridiculously low standards and general bad taste.

Last one is long gone.

I'm gonna be in San Francisco the rest of this week- what all should I do besides shop at AP and Baby??

Any tea house recs or good places to take pictures? best place to eat sushi?
Harajuku Hearts is in SF
I highly suggest hitting up the golden gate park attractions, getting your nails done, and exploring the nightlife in SoMa. Bunch of great eats, every neighborhood has local spots that are worth going to.
>getting your nails done
You want nail art or more of a spa experience anon?
For tea: Crown and Crumpet is right under Baby, so if you want quick nice tea that's convenient, I'd hit that up. If want cute, cozy, kitschy tea, do Lovejoy's. And if you're feeling fancy, go to the Rotunda downtown, which you can do at the same time as AP.

On the 25th, if you happen to be there, there's a Victorian themed dress up event at the Legion of Honor for their Pre-Raphaelite painting exhibit, and I think there's a few lolitas going to that. The exhibit is going on until the end of the month, so you can also go on your own, if you're interested in that kind of thing.

For pictures... idk maybe try Golden Gate Park? You can visit the Japanese tea garden, or the Palace of Fine Arts?

As for sushi... idk anything specific because I don't eat fish but you'll be in Japantown, there'll be plenty of sushi.

I hate overly long tubular waistbands like that. It looks like she got her whole body stuck in a Chinese finger trap.
it'd look better with a corset underneath, or on an hourglass figure probably.
If you cover her legs it looks like her body is coming out of a submarine and now I can't stop laughing

Also coming soon, this looks adorable.

So hear me out /cgl/, Im going to Wizard World because my mom didn't want my sister going alone to Chicago to take a picture with Mulder and Scully.

I was forced to buy some kind of VIP ticket to get the early access along with her, so I figure, I'll buy the gaming gold package so I get the $75 goodiebag, but I fucked up and ended buying the cosplay one.

The thing comes with a meet and greet, and I dont have any idea what's that about, Is it like, just hanging out with them or can I take pictures and stuff, I mean seeing the contest is cool, but If getting my money's worth involve akwardly talking to people I dont even know dressed in spandex, I might as well hit the bar friday night.

Left one has really swollen legs for someone her age. Seriously, not being an ass, she should get herself checked out. That amount of water retention in her legs for her weight is nor normal.
Might be the only place to ask, but anyone have pics of a few military lolitas as well? Was looking for the ghillie suit inspired one in particular.
DIYing isn't hard at all. Just requires a little bit of sewing.
I got a very good mk14 ebr replica off of Amazon for $35 that fooled some other military cosplayers into thinking it was a real airsoft gun. Look for the chinese knockoff toys.

I've had a random guy on the street tell me "I like your style" and it wasn't creepy at all. Just leave it at that and don't bother further, we're usually trying to get somewhere.
Enjoy the looong dog and the confused guy in the background!
I feel that. My comm's most embarrassing behavior definitely gets the stares.
You sound like a wonderful person.
I'm with you. I hate terfs, feminists, and transtrenders.
Just live your life, people. Stop with the identity politics.
