I'll start with mine. Is it weird to not let people take photos of you? People have done strange things to me while in cosplay (copped a feel of my boobs, my ass, I've even been lifted and kissed) so I try to avoid that like I have somewhere to be

Base curve

the wrong size will strain your eyes. I'm pissed cause most brands don't come in 8.4 as i need, but only one from honey color does so i buy those.

No other brands DO offer different base curves you dumb twat.
If you go blind it's not like any of us give a shit. Just know you only have yourself to blame.

What is the general attitude of Lolitas towards older prints of brand items? (Prints released +6 months ago or even years ago).
Bad. If the print is last season you will probably get few odd looks. Who the hell even consideres using several years old clothing possibly worn by others, disgusting.
For a serious response, like what you like. Lolita has a huge secondhand market.

I hope Cyril keeps putting her in the ugliest dresses she has as punishment for that comment.
The dress she wore to check out the venue was very cute. It would be nice in other colors such as traditional plaid and perhaps plain colors.
She could also be taking dicks up both holes. I mean, cake porn isn't the worse of porn offenses. Regardless the other two are acting like damn fools.

She used to have some real sloppy craftsmanship when she first started out, but ever since she transitioned fully into historical costume stuff from cosplay she's improved massively. I'm mostly impressed by her work ethic; girl churns out project after project like there's no tomorrow.

I have one more of them, full costume, but smaller photo.
what I'll give this chub casual Yuuri, theyve got the hair right. Its fluffy.Every cosplay Ive seen is using what looks like a Haru wig which is thinner
The attempt at his suit is nice, but the fabric and materials are all wrong.
it's really obvious that cosplayers have no experience with performance athletics... if you guys google what skating (or even dance or gymnastics) costumes are made of, you are going to have a far better time

actually, just take a look at pics of real men's skating costumes:

-yurio's feather-y things would likely be organza/chiffon or actual feathers
-that black flame-y part at the bottom is sewn TO the costume and would have to be made of some sort of stretch material (not that weird pleather)
-same with the silver parts
-figure skating costumes rarey have big blocks of color like that with no detail... often the edges between color blocks are outlined with rhinestones or sequins, even if they are the same color as the fabric. it adds depth & texture
-if it feels awkward to walk in you sure as shit wouldn't be able to perform in it

Thanks for these, I washed it and the smell is gone
i'm requesting a specific pattern that i can't find anywhere else! please help if these look familiar!

I was able to find the name of the creator, but they're not listing the pattern anymore. Hope another anon can help out there.

Choly's December pattern is out, y'all. It's cute. Gonna make a great reindeer pattern.

Teacuplion seems to be holding some sort of daily discount for December. Not sure what's going on with that. The Cat Puff pattern has been discounted (for today?).
You could get any basic pattern that looks close to it, like a bear or something and just mod it. The only thing that would be a real guessing game would be the ears and those look like loops of it sewn on.
Eyes are white felt circles with a teddy bear eye on top.

Find out how they're finding out about the tea parties and cut them off at the source. Close the comm group and make it private, make all the events private as well.

Full bush was standard up to maybe the 80s.
The reason it's associated with the 70s, is because that's also the first time hardcore pornography become relatively common.
Previously, pubic hair was seen as sexy, and the reason some older paintings and statues of nude adults don't have pubic hair, is because it was seen as more chaste without it.
By the 80s, fashion became more revealing the the pubic area, with high cut bathing suits and so on. Fashion laws had dictated that body hair was unsightly for women, so at least some of the pubic hair had to go.
Then sometime in the 90s, pornographers realized the actors' genitalia could be seen more clearly if shaved.
The aesthetic of shaved genitalia strongly correlates with increased porn consumption.
I want to cosplay for the first time at a con this July and I've already got horrible anxiety and really don't want to end up in one of these threads, haha.

I don't even know what to go as yet because I haven't been involved in many fandoms that lend themselves to cosplay, and while I am an aquarius, I'd look like a godawful Eridan. Or a godawful anything, for that matter.

It was such a magical feeling. I want to have that again
Sorry for the late reply, anon. I have actually lost any kind of hope after my last boyfriend. He used me only for sex and I was stupid enough to let him do that because he was my childhood crush. This new guy is a surprise. What I'm trying to say is: never say never but don't wait for it either. Just live your life and somebody will show up when you don't expect it.
Most people don't get bumps until like 6 months, plus high waisted lolita dresses are a thing. I'm planning to wear full shirring/full back shirring plain cotton dresses if I ever get pregnant and have a baby. They seem convenient for bump + can be pulled down to breastfeed + machine washable for when baby invariably gets body fluids on them.
my happy feel is arika takaranos "oh maiden, advance with a sword and rose"

Makeup question for ftm crossplay:
I have really neutral pale skin. When I blend/contour, my face looks dirty. Any tips?
Really depends on what kind of dirty.

Most likely, you either need to blend more, use less product, or the product you have is patchy and low quality.
I'd try a different color powder for shadow contouring. Use rich, vibrant brown colors instead of muted browns, grey or black.

Spent a lot more money than I expected, but I'm happy about it. I'm super excited for the make up organizer set since I'm trying to get a good vanity/set up going.
I hope it works out for her anyway and I would hate to give a shit gift, if worst comes to worst maybe she can mix it with a lip blam and use it as a weird tinted balm.
Please tell me how the contour palette works out, I've been eyeing it off for forever.
Will do! Every review I've seen of it thus far has been pretty good, and I'm excited to try it out since any other palette I've gotten has been super orangey and dark on my skin.

What is that perfume(?) on the upper right? It looks super interesting.
It's called Noora by Swiss Arabian! There a still a few up on amazon I believe. Haven't tried it before but I can give updates on how the scent is
Ok so this perfume just came in the mail, the scent is incredible. It's very classy without being too "old lady"-like. The citrus notes are great, it's got a lovely sweet/spicy thing going on. My boyfriend couldn't stop smelling me! 10/10

Anyone here know where and or what kind of pants and shirt Miller is wearing? Idk where to look honestly
Got to any Army Surplus store
Essentially everything for Miller is Vietnam Era Stuff. Pattern 3 Jacket, because of the pockets. On the Pants you can just take BDU Pants, nobody will notice the difference.
The boots for my girlfriend and I just arrived. Around 30€ each and way better in terms of quality, compared to the Fake jungle boot.

Market over-saturation is the big issue. The second-hand market has been slow for months, yet there's still a constant deluge of new releases. It's not that all the choice available now is bad per se, it's that the size of the community hasn't actually increased to match the growth, so we now have a huge supply with the same demand. I'm not even sure what's fuelling the excess growth - people say it's brands selling abroad but they've been doing that for years and the western community hasn't had the same sudden increase in membership in the past two years that the increase in sales volumes would suggest. Is it the huge Chinese market that's virtually invisible to the west because they use their own SNS and sales methods fuelling it? Either that or it's homogenization in people's tastes combined with all the re-releases resulting in more people spending their cash on AP and not second-hand, but that feels unlikely.

Lolita is pretty weird at the moment because there's so much easy availability of lolita right now yet the community is still small and not a widely-known subculture, despite not being small enough to feel really niche.

If you like Malice Mizer, give Aioria (the band in the OP) a try. They have a similar kind of goth-rock-pop sound, and can go from poppy synth-lead songs to heavy metal without problem.


The only problem is that they only released 1 album, but there's more stuff by Misa (the main composer) in other bands and they sound similar.
Also one of their guitarist was on full gothic lolita costume like Mana.

Speaking of which, anyone know what happened to Michiru?
I know Misa is now the producer of Mejibray, and Sarino is doing Annie's Black, but Michiru kind of went off my radar for a long time now.

Some other recs: Lareine, Raphael, Luna Sea, X Japan, Buck-Tick, Baiser.
