What was the event also going on at the Marriott Waterside this weekend? It was packed.
Did anyone see the costume contest?
Went home early, so no. Heard that Doki didn't place at all. Anyone know who won what?
No but I heard Dokis Mom cornered a judge and yelled at them and Doki cried somewhere in the mix

I'm just making a quick prop of him by modifying a hamster ball and a hamster plush.
I’ll be there Friday & Saturday it’s my first time. I haven’t been to a convention since 2012 so this should be interesting. Not too pressed to see any guest right now if anything I just want to enjoy the con & ease my way back into convention going, but I know once I’m there I’m gonna want photos with a number of people.
does anybody know if they sell gunpla or anything like that?

Silhouettes on dresses look lovely and I would absolutely buy one with silhouette lolitas holding hands, kissing, etc even though I'm mostly straight. But boys? What about that would even be lolita? No thanks.
Yaoi isn't lolita.

This is a good reply, I hadn't thought I was so sensitive about what other people think I do with my own clothes.

Thanks, anon.
I do, and I post them online. It's just not really popular.
Yaoi really isn't going to fly in these parts. It's alright to read and whatnot, but putting it on your clothes is no better than those people with the shirts made of ahegao faces.

Old thread hit bump limit >>9715254

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

A shopping service as in a proxy? I am used to ordering via Superbuy for other purposes. I could find some other services, but maybe you have suggestions for customer-oriented ones?
To answer my own question, there's a section on the left that has "mens/neutral" clothes. Not sure how I missed it, considering I translated the whole page at least once.

I write an erotica/romance/drama story specifically set at an anime convention. I post the story for free on a bunch of different sex story sites, but for $1 they get teasers/bonus stuff, and then all the way to $20 they can send me their OC for me to write into some of the scenarios.

I'm nowhere near attractive enough for anyone to want to see me cosplay, period, let alone pay money for it. I am decent with a pen, though.

If you are making that kinda money from fanfic I'd say you are doing pretty damn well.

It's about average when I compare myself to similar writers on Patreon. I've no idea how it compares to most cosplayer Patreons. I only have one friend who runs a cosplay Patreon, and she makes about $50 a month for doing nothing, as in, her last post on there was April last year.

On months where I'm not enough posting teaser updates and being as prolific as I can, my numbers drop drastically.
It's a shame things can't be as straightforward as they are in the Japanese cosplay community. I had the interesting experience of attending Cosholic last summer - an entire convention for lewd cosplayers - and it was really enlightening seeing this whole scene where cosplayers just make lewd photo sets and sell them straight out. No dancing around with Patreon, no bullshit, just straightforward commerce. It was also interesting seeing how my friends from the Japanese cosplay community viewed it, none of them are ero-cosplayers but they all saw the whole ero-cosplay thing as pretty normal and didn't really give anybody shit over it. They were shocked at how awkward I was about being there.

The only state with 3 cons every weekend in direct competition with one another. Supercon is over, Metro is happening now, Mini Iwai right around the corner. What events/costumes are you planning for? What is DokiDoki up to this time? Its time for a new Fla general. All this and more on this episode.

I saw a few chicks as the DDLC girl group outside a panel entrance listening to some kpop on a speaker.
Call me a normie, but why does Metro get so much hate? Me and my friends dressed as the SAS from Rainbow Six, went around, took pictures, went to panels etc. It was a lot of fun! The only shitty part was that after around 8pm on Saturday every panel runner apparently up and left.
This Metro was pretty damned good this year. Better than last year and certainly better than the year before. It was even more fun than metro 2015 with the Stanley cup in town. Lots of good panels and meetups (at least for the stuff that I cosplayed this con)
I've only been to 2015 and 2018, and I can agree they were awesome! Thanks, anon.

Im a male fan of lolita fashion, just the dresses and all that. I find it fascinating and just plain ol nice to look at, y'know? Well My wife's ex tried to say I was a danger and a degenerate because, being a fan of Lolita fashion, that automatically pegged me as a pedophile and I liked to dress up like a little girl.

I used it as a thin clear coating on top of a polymer clay charm which was painted with acrylic paints. I'm using the Padico UV Resin (Hard type). The light i'm using is an LED UV flashlight, the site I got it from (miniaturesweet) says it will take only 1-3 minutes for the light to fully cure a piece.

I have the same resin and no, it doesn't feel tacky when dry.

Don't really know what's up with yours though, maybe the acrylic paint isn't fully dry? I know moisture is a big issue when working with resin, but I can't think of anything in dried acrylic paint or cured polymer clay that would interfere with resin.

Any idea how I could save this pendant? I really like the angel but otherwise it's a bit tacky.
if the middle bit is what you want you could just cut it out and sand off the stumps
take it off the xmas ornament string, remove the bow at the bottom, add a proper jump hook.
Maybe do a resin with it to give it some color?

When did they stop giving badges for panels? I did panels 2 years ago and got badges. Their terms we're more lax then most of the cons I apply at...

They need to stop drastically changing everything every year

They still offer free badges I believe. They just have a max amount you're allowed.

The issue is you're not going to have strong panelists if you have a weak show overall. They don't have bands anymore, and this year it's just no-name YouTuber guests and the same English VAs A-Kon had for the most part.

There is literally no unique guests attending. Why would a panelist waste time at Afest if no one going to show up? They would be better off applying to other cons in Texas.
Weird. A-Kon had good guests this year and Anime Fest has trash guests. Maybe we're living in an alternate dimension.

> Why would a panelist waste time at Afest if no one going to show up? They would be better off applying to other cons in Texas.
I agree and also want to add that Anime Fest is at a kind of weird time. It's on the tail end of the summer con schedule, so many people have already blown their convention budget on other events. It also takes place close to or after the start of the school year, so that really messes up the attendance too. In the past, Anime Fest was that weirdly timed con I would make time for because they went the extra mile and put the anime back in anime convention, but that's just not there this year. Maybe I'll stop by one day if I'm near downtown for whatever reason, but I won't go out of my way to attend.
Does anyone know who's actually running the cosplay contest this year? They changed rules and took out skits. They also moved the contest to the hotel so the stage isn't nearly as near as nice as last year.

Is anyone planning to compete?

I agree, I know many European lolitas struggle with insane VAT. But to come into a fashion based in Japan and expect to be able to build full coordinates from local secondhand is naive.

In the past five years I only got hit with customs once as an Eurofag and I buy a lot of items from Japan. Instead of moving most Europeans just have to learn how they can let their packages slip through customs without being charged. It's actually not that hard at all.

Why are so many lolita youtubers ugly? Lor looks like a man, pic related looks like she got hit in the face with a frying pan, batty looks like a cow(not just her weight), and k8 looks crusty with makeup and fuggo without.

Even Milkyfawn was badly aging despite having OK features.
Because most lolitas are ugly
Not really. Your average cof poster looks better face wise than your average lolita youtuber
I think that that overall there's more average-looking lolitas than ugly, the ugly ones are just so goddamn hideous that they become imprinted in your mind forever. And, I don't know, there's no barrier to entry to making videos except being technologically adept, and ugly people tend to be that way?
Any other Chinese lolita youtubers besides Victorianme who record in Mandarin? I like watching her videos since I'm learning the language.
