Wow, that's amazing! If you don't mind me asking but what do you usually sell?do you have any tips for new artists?
What's the verdict on signatures on prints? I'm used to doing it for digital art, but I almost never see them on prints.
More artists should do it. It makes it a lot easier to track down an artist if you want to look them up and misplaced their business card, or if you want to look them up later. I had to do a extensive search to find the artist for a fanart piece I bought probably a decade ago because there was no signature on the print.
I’ve made a stamp with my name I just stamp on the back of my prints
I put a very small water mark on almost all my prints (about half an inch and faded in or blended in) that’s basically my URL / username. No one has ever complained and it only helps people find me in the future like >>9860294 said. I’ve had instances where I found other people’s art (prints sent them wrong, print left at my table, etc) and no way to locate the artist because they had no water mark so :(

Which one do you use?
While sending a dress out for shipment the other day I thought about how convenient it would be if we could vacuum pack clothes for shipment. I did some googling to see if this was a thing and found a post by a seller on eBay who apparently saves a lot of money by doing this, though though they use a foodsaver machine. Their pics:

Is this tacky or not a completely terrible idea? How would people feel if they started getting vacuum sealed burando in the mail?
I honestly love the idea. You can fit it into smaller packages, and keep it watertight so that it doesn't arrive damaged. If I was on the recieving end, I would be pleased.
As long as the item won't get damaged in the process I wouldn't mind, especially if it helps reduce shipping costs. Just make sure to warn the buyers beforehand.

>it's a sad thing to bring your fucked neurochemistry to a normal, baseline level so you can function

I mean, there was a way to interpret the statement to say the drugs were recreational, or maybe they were saying they're OK with a partner who is mentally is as long as they are taking steps to help them function.

My husband is on meds and I've gone through counseling on and off and we somehow make it work. Sometimes the person that understands you best is someone who has gone through some of the same things. We recognize each other's low/depressive episodes and intervene before shit can hit the fan, but we also don't 100% rely on each other to magically make everything better.

To bring this full circle into cgl related, I can honestly say I'm so happy that my husband and I both share a love of weeby things. He is incredibly supportive of everything I do, and while I know a normie partner could be just as supportive, it's so good to share with someone who actually understands.
I’d be a good lolita gf if it weren’t for number two, dysthymia and an eating disorder rip

A thread dedicated to the best accessory ever: aprons! They're slowly starting to make a comeback.

Post your favorite apron coords, favorite aprons, do you prefer apron skirts or detachable aprons? Are they just a fashion accessory or do you actually wear one to cook or eat in?

Absolutely. Your best bet are the classic brands; IW and VM have released quite a few in the past.
Aprons are cute, but I always feel like it just turns the outfit into a maid cosplay.

i don't understand miscy/theblackribbon. I like everything she makes for her brand but she always has a way of looking very "budget-lita" when she dresses herself. love how she did her hair here tho
much much better than I've seen her put together before. but why can't she ever do her hair or wear a wig? she looks like an unstylish nerd in a dress.
wish she had a little quality red flower to pin to the hat. diggin this military/wa fusion though, she just needs to go all the way and style her hair and face!
I'll take "People who haven't realized yet they want to be goth and not gothic lolita for 400, Alex"

shitty hair/headband aside, this would be a really cute casual coord if she had a proper fitted red cutsew instead of a awkwardly tucked, oversized wal-mart t-shirt

Do any of you get plastic surgery?
What hobby are you in- lolita or cosplay?
What have you had done, and how much have you paid out to improve your look?
Do you think plastic surgery is ok, or a definite no.
Post before and after photos of any lolitas or cosplayers.
I dont see this talked about a lot, but I thought it'd be interesting to discuss.

i've gotten double eyelid (ptosis correction) surgery
i'm very happy, i look a looot better, but when the topic of plastic surgery is brought up i just can't bring myself to mention 'oh yea i've had work done'
gulls: how open are you about it? do you talk about it with your friends/peers?
i can't help but feel fake and like im hiding when i dont mention my surgery.
If someone asked me directly I would mention it, but I wouldn't just in a passing conversation. It's like your medical history; you're not obligated to share whether you've had surgery with someone if you don't feel like it.
Lips are incredibly elastic compared to other skin, actually. And I do plan on keeping up with fillers as I get older as lips do get thinner as you get older. It's not like I went for like 3ml or anything either. It's only been a ml each time. I doubt I'm in any danger of having fucked up my face.
Hey gulls, I wish I could spoiler this image to soare you all from this horrific image but I can’t. Looking for advice.

Got braces as a kid to fix teeth that looked like a minefield, but they didn’t fix the overbite. For as long as I can remember I haven’t been able to keep my mouth closed/lips shut naturally, either because of the hulking huge front teeth I have, or the overbite and how my jaw developed after, or both. I consciously force it closed, but it looks really weird and there’s a lot of visible tension around the chin area, like I’m gritting my teeth. It looks really, really bad in photos, and I’ve only been getting by by covering the chin/mouth area entirely or angles and plentiful shoop. The dentists I’ve spoken to said that corrective jaw surgeries have a miniscule success rate and often end up being botched and even uglier than successful, but my other option is to remove like 5+ adult teeth over the course of at least a year, which I can’t feasibly do due to travelling for school. What do, gulls? Or am I cursed to have this horrific mongoloid chin and profile forever doomed to be ugly? Pretty sure this cursed jaw/chin/mouth issue is also responsible for long term health issues I’ve suffered like consistent mouth ulcers. >>9852147
What do you recommend, and where did you go for your underbite surgery?

Also not as important as chin thing but what the fuck is my nose, how do I even describe it, and how do I fix it? where do I even begin?
Sage for samefag and blogposting but it’s bad enough to the point where normal people will actually bring it up with me like “do you have some kind of issue with your mouth?” and “why is your mouth open all the time?” and it really fucks with m self esteem. The nose thing to a lesser extent, but without angles I look like a pig and it looks like a horrible pig snout.

I’m desperate to fix my trainwreck of a face but I don’t even know where to look.

Also someone mentioned upthread about shaving the length of their front teeth- me too, mine are a good 2.5-3 mm longer than the ones next to it and I want the death, thanks.

Unfortunately I'm looking for the rucksack, not the pochette. Thanks for the help though!
You must be new. Also so many of those usakumyas look the same, why do you need them?

I just like collecting them?
You are clearly new, all rhs are uncomfortable unless you are wanting to fork out for VW ones. Brands aren’t shoe makers, all their shoes suck. Don’t post in the DD for stuff you actually aren’t looking hard for.

What are you currently working on?

Thank you for sharing!
I will have to order some mushrooms~ Maybe I can find some eye motif beads else where. I'll also check out that store you shared. Always looking for good Ali stores.
Weirdly enough, my inspo came from watching a mini doc on the first uses of a multiplane camera in early animation, and some videos by Little Windows after discovering their color film. (Though I didn't quite end up buying any.)
For anyone that lives in America and has an etsy/storenvy shop, what's the best way to ship internationally? I want something with tracking, but when I ask at the post office they say only priority has tracking and it's so overpriced I don't think anyone will want to pay it. I'm just wanting to ship hair clips, pins, and necklaces. Has anyone ever been scammed with a chargeback or someone filling a claim even when you mailed something or am I just too worried for nothing?
Use PayPal shipping, first class package international is decently cheap (compared to the post office at least...) and comes with tracking

Im close to 1000 sales on my store front and Ive never had someone attempt a charge back or dispute. I've sometimes had customers message me saying their item never arrived. If thats the case I just suck it up and re-ship it to them at no charge. All the times I've had to reship items to customers, I'd say less than 10 times. I always ship no tracking because its the most affordable option for me and my customers.

As for you thinking the shipping price is unreasonable, you have this outlook because you live in America and are used to cheap shipping. For anyone else, we are already used to paying out the nose for shipping. So to those customers, they generally understand and are used to this. Offering pricey shipping to international customers is way better than refusing to ship internationally at all.

Prints you want to exist but don't. Is there a concept you thirst over but it doesn't exist/what does exist looks ugly? Do you want to claw your eyes out every time AP rerelease Holy Lantern and Misty Sky instead of thinking of something new? Why do you think the print you want doesn't exist?

Example, I'd give my left tit for an AP peanut butter and chocolate print but peanut butter isn't a huge thing over in Japan.

ITT: lowkey want to be Mrs. Frizzle, a dress for any topic
I love the ridiculous novelty print themes Taobao brands do, but don't always love the execution or the quality of dress that they're printed on. I'd love to see the major brands take inspiration from some of the more out-there ideas but get proper artists and print on something other than cheap chiffon.

So I see the formula for being attractive fat is that your breasts have to stick out at least an inch past your gut.

It says it's shipping to the warehouse now, does that mean a warehouse in China, then it'll get shipped to me from there?
Alright thanks! It said free shipping, but once it gets to the warehouse will I have to pay for international?
okay cool, thanks for answering my questions! I hope this goes okay.
