Walmart has mirrors like that, if you can’t find the color you want then grab a can of spray paint. Make sure to tape the mirror part and cover it before painting around it.

Has anyone experienced using tablecloths to cover ugly dorm desks before, when that same desk is also where you eat most of your meals and do most of your studying? I think it'd make my room look much nicer but I'm worried it'd get dirty fast, since I keep a lot of other stuff on my desk and would have to remove all the books, computer, lamp, penholder, etc every time I wanted to change the cloth.

Can you honestly say you have made good friends, at least one, since you got into this hobby?

Have been in the hobby about 8 years, still have no friends that are into cosplay. I tried to make friends with a girl from uni that seemed very into cosplay and also cosplayed from League of Legends. She ghosted me after one conversation. She seemed genuinely friendly until we exchanged social media. I cant help but think she became uninterested because of my meager following while she had over 100K followers on instagram.

>>9714432
the majority of female friendships i've had haven't been actual friendships, just... acquaintanceships? i think i've only made 1 or 2 legitimate female friends in my life, and that was only because of lolita. otherwise we're just acquaintances who compliment each other on social media.

meanwhile my bf has had the same friends since middle school. idk, maybe? i was also a recluse until now so it might just be me

Cosplayers fall into one of three categories.
A: Strong desire to make their own costumes
B: Don't care about making it but want quality
C: Just want to buy a costume regardless of quality
Column B will likely be looking for someone to commission from and custom-make them a quality costume. Column C will be buying cheap, custom-sized costumes off of Amazon or eBay or Cosfu or wherever.
Like there's no reason for anybody to "risk" buying a costume that has good photos and is shit in person, or is the wrong size, or is misrepresented, etc, etc off of eBay or wherever else.
>obviously somebody else wants it
Except that's not totally obvious at all for the stated above reasons?
Do YOU know anybody that would buy a Ryuko Matoi costume sized for somebody 6' 0", pear-shaped, and about 230 pounds?

I feel this, though i am too short and curvy...

Luckily i only care about nanchatte and its not hard to pull off.

Weight loss isnt in my vision anymore since generic diet and exercise combos (undereating, overeating, correct eating, all with (usually excessive) exercise) dont work for me.. im not going to make it a goal.

Old thread hit image cap and is almost at bump limit >>9460968

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

I almost commented on it critiquing it, but didn't... The garters absolutely ruin it for me I'm afraid. The bare skin isn't a good look, it doesn't balance out the solid black blouse enough.
>>
>>9714542
i know you from Discord and various other platforms and i feel like i should tell you that likes aren't everything. every time you post to CoF, you ask people in the Discord why you didn't get likes and it's a little concerning. maybe take a step back from CoF because all it seems to be doing is making you sad that you aren't getting the likes you want. it's natural to want validation but doing something that disappoints you over and over isn't good for you.

>t. genuinely concerned acquaintance

as for the outfit, i think black tights (patterned or solid) would be better than all of the interesting legwear you have on right now. the garters are a little too menhera-esque. your posing is getting better but it still looks a little forced; instead of overly posed photos, focus on standing up straight and having good posture. i think it'll help a lot.
>>
>>9714542
i dont think this is awful, but need to change everything on legs other than shorts.

>>9714542
I would ditch the garters and get some different shoes, like booties. I also dont think the wig is very flattering cut.

>à la mode
>fashionable; in the US it also describes a dessert with ice cream (as in "apple pie à la mode") or, in some US regions, with cheese. In French, it mainly means "fashionable", "trendy", but is occasionally a culinary term usually meaning something cooked with carrots and onions (as in bœuf à la mode). It can also mean "in the style or manner [of]"[57] (as in tripes à la mode de Caen), and in this acceptation is similar to the shorter expression "à la".

I'd hate to jump on the ageplay meme, but soft lolita is not something I can exactly broadcast to my coworkers without invoking weird images. So I'll just keep saying vintage inspired until someone less dead in the brain and as influential comes up with a different name.

Before feminism you could have just been a housewife.

You wouldn't have to worry about anything and your husband would be able to buy whatever you want, in reason.

Instead now you have to pretend to be a man, and compete in free market capitalism.

Dude take your meds. Meds are not the panacea but they're safer than they have been before and will help you function better. I'd advise psych/doctor shopping just because from experience some psychs care a lot and some... don't. But the right people and the right meds really help.
