Can we have a thread for cosplay that can easily be pieced together via buying from normie stores? As in things that can actually be well done without any sort of extensive construction and/or a trip to Macy's. Also, preferably cosplays that can still stand out despite their simplicity.

I, unfortunately, don't have many examples (which is why I'm making the thread) but will post what I can find. Humanizations are easy modo but still count.

Most of the Masters from Fate/Zero or other Fate series. Only issue I have when I see these guys cosplayer is they're often a victim of i-dont-need-a-wig-hos-hair-is-close-enough-to-mine
Do not sexualize the Poplar.
Shizuka from hotd is easy, videl from dbz as well, android 18 is harder but not impossible
Not a physical store, but you can cosplay literally any sports anime with one purchase from Amazon or eBay.

Love Live has some decent outfits that can be done easily like >>9402892 said. Look up school idol festival cards on google and you should get a few sites with all the cards on.

I don't think I've ever seen this thread.
Let's discuss Japanese shopping services. Discussion of Chinese and Taobao shopping services should stay confined to the Taobao thread.
Is anyone interested in helping make a sort of spreadsheet of Japanese shopping services, like the one we have in the Taobao thread?

I agree with you, she's not cheap. I go with her because she'll take good care of the shit I want with next to no hassle, and I'm willing to pay a premium for that.

I have tenso, I've used FJ, I used Celga in the dark ages, and at this point in my life I have more money than time so CT is seriously the way I go when it's not tenso-level simple shit.

Now if you're impatient, cheap and have more time than money, she's definitely not the first SS I'd recommend.
So who would you recommend?
Most Japanese SS's charge for photos. 500 yen is definitely really steep.
I'd recommend starting with the bigger/non-personal services as mentioned in the thread. When I mentioned time, I was specifically thinking about how I personally used FJ's bidding/snipe system so other people's experiences may vary. I only moved to CT once I was able to afford the extra fees.

I did use a variety of one-off personal SS when lj-egl was still a lot more active, so the other option is to find a smaller personal SS that's starting out and give them a shot. The downside to this is the possibility that they flake or are rubbish, but the upside could be being an early adopter to a really good and cheap (at the start, anyway) SS.
From my experience FJ is one of the fastest SS's. They always buy your items within 6-7 hours and they're pretty speedy with shipping too. I've just started using Zenmarket, but so far FJ seems to be faster on the ordering.

>six meetings in the past month.
I hope this is bait
>The lolita community needs to be more selective on who gets to join. Those one or two public events we have is enough.

I'm the one who posted >>9405442 and you're completely misinterpreting me. I actually believe that there should be more meetups that are public to the FB page. The reason people don't want FB-public meets is because there might be creeps on the FB page. Be more selective in who gets to join the FB group, be less paranoid about who can see what events are posted there. Don't let creeps or clueless weeaboos into the group in the first place so we don't have to skulk around and hide from them. IMO anyone with a genuine interest in lolita should have the opportunity to go to meetups without having to jump through a bunch of social hoops to get invited.
These creeps are imaginary desu. There weren't any at any of the public meets I've been to.
Last month? Doubt it. This year there have been four public meets and a few private meets but March is generally a shitty month for meets.
So they're bad enough to force the entire comm into hiding but not bad enough to remove from the group? And if someone is annoying to some but not to others having invite-only meetups like >>9404655 described doesn't actually keep anyone out because the people who don't think they're annoying will just invite them anyway. So what's the point?

New worn thread!

I'm looking for toned down or more casual way to wear Day Dream Carnival like pic related.

I always liked the print, but I'm not a sugary pastel sweet lolita.

Has anyone seen this worn?
Agreed, this is a worn thread to see how cuts look on different bodies. Flat layouts are useless in deciding whether or not to get or look for a dress
Requesting photos of anyone wearing Sweet Devil in the black colorway and the pink colorway that doesn't make them look like ita trash.

I have the black colorway but I'm debating on selling or keeping it because I feel like it's quite hard to coord without making it look trashy.

It does suck but if they're going to go international then they'd better not go somewhere where the amount of people who can fit _and_ afford their clothes is higher than 0.1%
I think it's nice that they don't follow trends. It's so silly when people complain "brands don't release simple/wearable/casual dresses anymore" and romanticize oldschool. You just know they only looked at AP, jetj and baby etc.
Do you mean they had a physical shop that closed or..? They're still active on twitter
Has anyone actually bought/seen this JSK worn? It's really interesting.
their website says closed, can you order through their twitter?

there isn't one in the catalog right now and I've been seeing some good coords lately!

post your favorites (bonus points if other than Kagome).

-does a wa inspired main piece make a coord "wa" or do you expect further styling, like inclusion of haori/yukata/kimono/obi or quintessential Japanese imagery in the accessories?

-what do you like to see in a wa coord?

I personally love punk elements or wild, vivid colors, and a good wa coord to me is experimental and isn't simply aiming to look as trad as possible.

I usually just lurk around the Lolita threads so I'm pretty surprised to find a photo of something I actually already own.

I wonder if this was modified at all or if all she did was add some pieces to it?

So this started from a conversation I saw in the Newcon thread.

According to the poster, Newcon approached the creator of the CWF to see if they were interested in having a show at Newcon,.Come the con, Newcon did their own wrestling show and kept the CWF team out of it.

My question is did they even need to ask permission in the first place? Panel ideas are copied left and right (how many Jojo pose panels do you see or how many cosplay 101 panels are out there). Panel ideas don't have a trademark nor are they well protected. Watching panels, you can easily see the formula each show uses (as well as source cites for information panels). Anyone determined enough can steal a show like the CWF as they lay out everything. If Newcon wasn't going to steal it, someone else would eventually. Why is it a deal when the same panel is at another con with a different staff?

TL:DR Panel ideas are not protected and with only a finite ideas amount ideas out there panels will be repeated in other places.

Then here's newcon's form which you can find here

The two start out exactly the same but you can forgive that given how they're the same events. It's like how all masqurade forms ask for the same details.

However things get REALLY specific. Not only are the words the same but they even stole the capitalization.

TL:DR - Newcon stole the CWF's idea, rules and app form and did not even bother to tell them anything
How much money was involved here?
I couldn't give a fuck for the idealogical purity of some dipshit's panel idea, but cash is a different story
On a person-by-person basis, which side is the bigger dicks?
Is the con known to be stingy and skeezy? Are the performers known to be bigger assholes than Vig Mignoncock?
I don't watch Judge Judy for the legal details, and I'm not following this without jucier drama
Nvm I found the other threads. This is so juicy it has to be fattening
The con is WAAAAY sleezier

Old thread hit image limit...

General thread for "casual" girly styles--Defined styles like himekaji, roma gyaru, otome-kei/soft lolita welcome as well as undefined street style.

Try to keep larme, fairy kei, etc in their own threads--but let's not get too hung up on thread policing.

There's something about this look that really rubs me up the wrong way. Maybe it's the hair? It's very child pageant-y
That's definitely the length I feel most comfortable in but I've only been able to find them in sturdier fabrics so they really emphasize the different widths of my upper and lower thighs. I'm hoping somewhere like Forever 21 or H&M will have some looser shorts that have an inseam longer than 1 inch.

It would definitely be one of the Hugh Jackman incarnations. The only costume from the comics I'd think of doing is Days of Future Past, I'd have a tough time making any of the classic ones
But yeah I'm thinking of doing a movie version
Are there any versions you'd suggest I do? I'm open for ideas
Get out
I hate his art, but I understand that's subjective. His costume designs rarely translate well into real life.
Why movie version? The comic contain so many more interesting costumes, you could just look up 'Wolverine Alternate outfits' on google and get a huge list of them to choose from.

They have a lot of different designs of varying quality. One pair I bought was faux-patent, uncomfortable to wear and the outer got fucked up instantly.

My daily wear shoes are TUK creepers and I'm happy with them.
In my experience, anything made with faux-patent is not made to last. It's a material that is more for show, not for daily wear and tear.

This was just the other day. Not only do I plan on boning him while in that cosplay, I'm thinking of other slutty outfits I can ride him in.
