I wasn't sure where to post this, was going to do it in the Lolita general but the old thread is dead and I didn't want to start it off with a replica discussion.
Someone I have as a friend on Facebook is selling Celestial in Black for absurdly low, around $100 less than the going price. She says it's because she lost the front bow, but that the dress is in otherwise good condition. I'm still a little suspicious though, since the bows are one of the most telling signs of a replica. It's a long shot, but can anyone tell from these photos if it's a replica or not ?

Idk what shop you are talking about but To Alice doesn't.
What the fuck are you even going on about? I am not the one who stated all nun dresses look the same. That is the person you should be responding to.
Lol, is this bait? It is a replica of Ista Mori's Nameless Poem, not the original.

Bite her back.
We need to do something about getting proxies banned, it's really unfair to other artists and generates competition for tables and artificially creates more of a demand for tables which cons see and go like "let's increase the size of our artist alley" while attendance stays the same and everyone makes less money overall.
look at what's happened at cons like awa,megacon even ax where the aa was doubled in recent years. A lot of people (not all) noticed a decline in sales.
It just hurts everybody and is straight up illegal if they're from another country.
Sanitize it.
>artificially creates more of a demand for tables

how is it artificial? Those tables ARE in demand, otherwise they wouldn't sell.
The problem is that the demand for slots to sell is higher than the demand of customers purchasing product. The convention is the one with the responsibility to regulate their available slots to match the size of their audience - and sometimes they fail to realize that the desire to table is not synonymous with their ability to sell.

>i don't even wanna go to cons anymore because there, they are always the same and after two hours i feel bored already
I feel so empty and weird, I just want to be an excited weeb like i was as a teenager (without the cringe), everything was so much more exciting. I had so much to look forward to. And now that I am 21 and actually have the money to buy real lolita,go to cons,buy anime merch,... i don't really feel like it anymore. I used to have depression but i'm mainly over it, don't know what could be causing that.

You don't need to be brutal or anything. Try if you can to plan some stuff I'm advance with each of them (a panel with the girlfriend here, an event with the best friend there) and let them both know your schedule so you have guaranteed time with each and they both know in advance not to expect to be attached to you 24/7. Also, is there a reason all three of you couldn't hang out together? If someone's feeling left out, all it takes is a simple "hey, I'm worried we're making x a third wheel, let's try to include them more" without pointing any fingers.
Sorry, I somehow missed the entire part of the original post that mentioned her behavior with your other friends. Yeah, there's nothing wrong with saying even in advance that this is someone who's important to you and bought your room and you really want to make an effort to see them. If she can't handle that, she might not be a good fit.
Oh shit, I'll bet it was cute!

Ass update: I can sit without much discomfort and I look forward to a nice tea tomorrow!
Entirely accurate on the last part there. She seems reasonable enough, I just haven't known her long enough to know if she'll be obnoxious about that sort of thing. Because of that I don't want her to think that she's bothering me by making me think I have to talk to her about that sort of thing.

I'm just started dating again after a very long relationship and it's all so confusing to me.
I wish you guys lived near me. I actually don't mind people's autism or spagetti spilling. I'm sure there are other people like that too. You'll all find your group and >>9274453 I think you found them already so try to enjoy it instead of making yourself a self fulfilling prophecy.

Early Christmas shopping, anyone?

UK gulls, do you have experience with December time parcels being treated differently in term of customs?

I know it will take longer than usual to arrice, but does the busy period increase or reduce the risk of being taxed? My contents are relatively cheap so I wonder if i should have it shipped now or wait til January?
I should add it's parcel from Japan
Big buy from AP and some stuff from Bodyline.
Link to the nanchatte skirts?
Did you not read the post? Or recognize the style of photos?

What's the nicest compliment you've ever received for your cosplay work?

A little kid asked me to hugh him when cosplaying as Batman. There were like 5 other Batmen at the con but he told me that he wanted to hugh only me because "You're the real Batman because you look like the one from the TV".
I only had people call me gay :(
Yeah but we're sharing what people call us while cosplaying.
I know you're trying to be funny/witty but you need to work on your phrasing.

For a change of pace, here is a thread to post and discuss recent coords tagged as gothic lolita on various social media sites. This is like the Closet of Frills thread, but just for coords called gothic by their makers, and for more than just CoF (Instagram, Twitter, Weibo, etc.).

I will post some recent coords to start us off.

Gothic lolita can be used as a synonym for lolita fashion, especially in Japan
Ugly as fuck.

Terrible attempt at ero.

Some of Gravelvet's coords are questionable, but I still crush so hard.

She looks so much better in gothic.
Whoops, meant to quote >>9268277 Comp was having issues.
Why do Western lolitas have no idea what gothic is?

>tfw your favorite cosplayer gets married and pretty much stops posting content to her online pages but still cosplays often but its only for conventions and people who go to them instead of taking great pictures.

This is the worst and you just know its because of the guy.
if they're your favorite cosplayer you should be happy that they found someone that they love enough that it's taking up a lot of their time. they just got married, they're busy and they're probably trying to focus on starting a family rather that toting around in costumes. chill out anon, be happy for them.
You just sound salty that your fap fantasy got married

This is the new LARP thread as the previous one - >>9240492 is dying the death of many posts.

I want to start collating information for new people and to reference so if you've got links to games, equipment suppliers, reference stuff or anything to do with LARP post it here and I'll come up with a LARP general info post.

General question to get things started - how much do people expect to spend to attend a LARP?
Collecting a link list for games in a place like this with people from literally all over the world is probably not going to be useful for anyone. Maybe for fest larps it could work.

Spending depends on what's expected of the event. I wouldn't pay £50 for a 4hour weekly event but for something over the weekend where there's going to be a huge setup, great costumes, lots of things going on etc then £65 is great.

For smaller events that run for a few hours then up to £15.

I think that it will be able to at least show the active games. Plus with an international audience it'll enable people that are traveling to a new country to be able to see if there are games active in the country they are traveling to.

What would you expect for your $15?

Favorite anime: Madoka, Texhnolyze, Death Parade, Aoi Bungaku, Mardock Scramble, Psycho Pass
Favorite brands: AP, Meta. Pretty boring, I know.

Just search for BABY blouses on Y!J, you'll find plenty.
It's the Babydoll blouse with heart lace, they've re-released it a bunch. There was a re-release this year and last year IIRC.
I remember her. She used to do dance videos in old school. She was also the leader in the now disbanded Pink Project
*pinku project

It outo corrected.
That's not lolita though. It's otome.

....why wouldn't they? If you're going to a meet that's at a restaurant why the heck would anyone else but yourself pay for your meal? This ain't the kindergarten field trip to the zoo. (Actually, even field trips cost money depending on where you went.)
NYC is the shittiest comm by far.
My comm is full of vultures thirsty for drama that doesn't exist. They'll take anything out of context and try to twist it into a juicy story. It's so frustrating.

>make a weird face in a photo because socially awkward
"She's such a smug bitch. Just look at her thinking she's better than us."

>have to cancel attending a meetup last minute because of a family emergency and made sure to notify the host while apologizing
"That bitch didn't even talk to the host, what a cunt. She must be cheating on her girlfriend that is attending the meet."

I just don't even know where they come up with half the stuff they think of. Anyone and everyone is a target. I just wish they would stop already.
call them out or it wont ever end, and bring receipts so they cant suddenly victimize themselves

Same tho. I got a "talking to" by the mods of my comm because the main drama-mongering flap-dragon in my comm overheard me mentioning some goddamn ancient little spat I had with someone- that she then spun into "Anon hates OtherAnon's guts and doesn't want her to come to meets so she doesn't have to be around her" and went straight to the mods with.

I'm interested
Usually I will only cosplay one character from a series/unit and just work my way through their outfits.

I'll admit, I get attached easily and will find it very hard to cosplay another girl. With love live I've done two of the girls because I 'fall in love' with characters slowly as I find the charm in them. But with idolmaster I've only ever done two, and one was by request. I had fun, but my main girl is too precious.
Akb0048 has me all over the place with various characters and costumes though.
I usually have one character per series that I cosplay as. Exception is Cinderella Girls where I have 3 atm (might become more) and probably Tokyo 7th Sisters since I have 3 characters I would like to cosplay as from there.
I recognise that feeling. I get so overprotective with my favorite girls. Especially with my CG girls since that's my favorite series. If I see someone badly cosplaying one of my top girls I get really upset inside. I know it's stupid but I want my girls to be made justice and I sectetly curse everyone who make them look bad.
