/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.

I've actually had an experience with this (as the one receiving that kind of message) and while I did think it was strange (I got the particular dress a long time before so I was like 'how did you even find that info?') I replied that I'd keep them in mind should I ever decide to let go of that dress. And I really will! I can't say if I'll ever really actually sell that dress as I love it, but who knows what the future holds and I will message that person should I decide to sell. Some people might find it really rude, but personally I don't. You need to prepare for either outcome and be willing to take that risk I guess?
So from S, A, B, etc., down to which ranking would you buy? I know secondhand is one of the better ways to start as a newlita, but I'm really hesitant to buy used clothing from overseas when I can't see the damage in person.
Depends, each store has their own way to rank pieces. I think in most stores C is the average condition of most pieces (i.e. used but in good condition without visible flaws), in some of them it's B.

What... the hell? Not all of them seem bad but some are like weirdly faintly sexual. I feel kinda gross after watching that painting one.
I feel like all of them are kinda sexual which is why it’s so disturbing. And after what >>9949118 said I’m really concerned.
I feel like most of the creep factor is just that she's almost certainly a legit child? Idk, I feel gross too now.

No age is too old in my opinion. If you’re perfectionist about looking just like the character then there are plenty of older characters to choose from and lots of opportunities to explore what different characters may look like as they grow older. Other options are the many armored or masked characters, but honestly pick whatever character you want no matter their age. I think cosplay is for fun and you don’t have to look just like a character to dress up as them.
I hope you shit in your brand
I'm conflicted, I want to make a lolita youtube channel because I really enjoy lolita content on youtube, but on the other hand I don't want people to think I want to be e-famous or anything, I just want to make content that I'm not seeing on youtube. I dunno what to do, I just want to make stuff but I'm like nervous, scared??

To be perfectly honest, even though I technically have friends, they're more just like randos I hang out with sometimes. I do have a few people who I'm close to and can "waste time" with, but they're all very far away. As for the people I see in person, I don't really have a sense of intimacy or the potential to develop intimacy with them, like I feel I can't tell them things straight and share my real feelings. So it's more like they're just placeholders for me to not get overwhelmingly lonely.

I do want to make better, real friends, but it's been so hard, especially since I'll be leaving uni soon. I don't even think I have especially high standards, but the people around me are just such normies it's almost impossible to find anyone I can relate to. Lolita meets also haven't worked out so well for me because most people are so mentally ill it would be emotionally exhausting for me to even begin to try to support them. I think you anons are right, we need to find ways to enjoy ourselves alone, at least in the meantime.

I hope you both feel better soon. Thanks for reading, it made me feel a bit less lonely.

Metrocon general; do you think this year will be as bad as years in the past? Any expectations? Feel free to give advice to first-timers as well!

Confess all your sins (including those about never washing your brand).

Thank you, anons, you're right.

I have contacted sellers first as well, letting them know about the flaws, but they have usually just ghosted me and never responded.

I'll do the right thing in the future.
I recently learned that adding a half cup of baking soda to yellowing fabrics in the wash with regular detergent helps brighten the white and removing yellowing without bleaching others colors like black. it revitalized my mid 2000's AP skirt.
go ahead, then.
The funny thing is that I've seen her wardrobe posts, and it's not even huge or particularly impressive, just cohesive and well-curated. Even if oldschool isn't your taste, you gotta admit that she looks consistently good, and that apparently really bothers some anons.

Taking a chance on a gachapon and a kuji. Will report back if anyone wants a review.
Man this happened to me recently and I'm negotiating now with the host. I didn't bother to check because it was a small one-off series and I just wanted something to remember it by.
Went back and looked because of this post and realized they overcharged by a lot, even after all the possible fees. I should've probably spoke out when they told me shipping was $5 for two can badges.
Any of the A3-sized bags by zakkamart are pretty big.

>pandering to newfags
I'm not sure what your point is. People do need to start somewhere, and there's certain things that may just not have happened to come up yet for someone, even for girls who have been wearing lolita for some time. For example, I've been in the fashion for a few years now, but I've never really experimented with perfume before, and also only very rarely take coord pics so I'm sure I (and a lot of people in similar situations) have plenty to improve on and would find this type of thread useful.

Even people who aren't total newfags can still learn new learn stuff (and I definitely see it as a continuous learning process), especially since the old blogs that talked about this sort of thing are pretty much dead. At the very least, I guess it could help contain apparent newfaggery to one thread?

Yeah, because fuck me for trying to start more on-topic discussion instead of like the same three threads full of salt that repeat over and over. 7/10, got me to reply.
Agreed. I prefer google photos because I can access them offline when shopping in person.

Don't bother replying to them anon. There's others that appreciate your effort.

You'll need to make a Taobao account to get around that. Otherwise it'll drive you crazy.
Thanks, anon. I didn't know I could create one since last time it was only available for some countries.
Cool, thanks anon!
Weird. I've been using Taobao directly, also with Visa, and no problems on my end.
Call your card provider/bank before making your purchase. They might have blocked transactions from China. Happened with one of my cards. Your bank should be able to fix it so you can try the transaction again.

My English is no well. I am Chinese.

I came to event to see Misako Aoki a week ago. There a man wear lolita fashion. He was wearing a Baby dress. He looked woman, but voice deep. I got a weird at him nearby so I ask man question. Why wear lolita fashion? He says lolita made him kawaii. I never knew man wear lolita fashion. Do some man in lolita fashion want to be a wife? Misako Aoki was no weird man in lolita fashion.

Do man in lolita fashion wear America? Is man in lolita fashion bad in America? I am no happy man in lolita fashion. Gone to Weibo to complain

There's brolitas who are fine if they are not freaks or sex perverts. Then there's sissies and middle aged men creeping at meets, and they should be tackled with a flame thrower.

I'm sorry you got scammed multiple times. I understand why people like you don't want to ship to Europe anymore.
I think you misread what I wrote anon. Unless you mean there are an abundance of eurofags that are willing to pay for full insured packages plus hundreds more in customs fees. In which case I have yet to meet one.
What are you talking about? I'm saying when I ship something to America and it gets lost, they don't give a shit about the value I wrote down, they want to see original receipts.
So basically the same as when your luggage gets lost. Makes me wonder if the shipping company claims it from the airline.
Let me go look through my itunes.

Should people particapating in nanchate go for a more realistic vibe with their uniforms? Or is it okay to be costumey as long as its cute?

Where is the best place to get school uniform and school uniform esk clothes?

Should seifukus classify as being apart of nanchate or does their need to be more effort put in to a nanchate coord?.

Kankens are pretty popular so I don't think it would look odd at all.
And what about the north face ones? Not as cute,but very practical. Kinda gives it a sporty feel? Above all,this is school fashion, for girls that want to be cute + practical,so I guess that not everything has to 100% match(apart from your clothes. Because I don't know about you but I didn't match stuff like my backpack and my umbrella and shit to my outfits back in school)
Personally speaking, not everything seifuku has to be super-coordinated or perfect, just as long as it fits the aesthetic I want to achieve. It's ok if it looks a little off; it's more realistic that way.

A huge part of nanchatte for myself is customization and adding personal touches on fairly plain pieces, and North Face isn't really heavy on graphics. It's a blank canvas more than anything.
I am pretty sure I have already seen both in nanchatte coords. I think they go well with it and so do sneakers; I'd just stay away from the sporty stuff that looks more professional like actually made for hiking or sports.
I wear a white tee under all my button ups, but apparently a true red bra doesn't show through white (never tried it though
