What were they thinking when they designed these?? Lolita brand fails thread

Tacky, hell yes
But my heart... I love this. It’s an abomination and I fucking love it.
Okay but this is a decently organized coord for that release
... No, no it couldn't. The houndstooth would look bad with the giant print sections regardless. One or two sweets appliques would be cute but this design is gross
I saw this dress so many times since the thread was created I began liking it.
I love this but it needs a cowboy hat instead of a boater hat.
honestly it's a dream print of mine and I don't even like sweet

0/10 Not playing blitzball underwater.
Trolling aside, do you think it would even be possible to get a photo of that? From a photog perspective, what would you need to make that happen? I've always wondered how people take underwater shots.
there's special waterproof equipment for underwater photography
Yeah, but could you get it deep enough and still have enough light to capture a scene like from the games?
I would imagine you use angles to give the illusion you are deeper. Then any touchups in Photoshop.

Didn’t see one in the catalogue so let’s do this, questions you have that don’t deserve a whole thread.

Mine is: what hairspray do you use to style your wigs? The wig I’m styling doesn’t need anything intense or gravity defying but I do need it to hold while I go about my day. Also wondering, what is the best way to wash it out? I’m just styling the bangs and hoping to be able to restyle it for later uses. My wig is from Arda if that matters.

nah not many people familiar with that in my country, and dont know if mass produced cosplays for my size are even there.
>madoka girls
never liked that show desu dunno

Maybe i should go for konosuba, too many "normal"fags in events already cosplaying them so a shitty crossplay would be fun.
I would love to do some kemono friends also, that would be great i love it but dunno
Does anyone know what happened to Dejavudea? I know she mentioned she was going to miss uploading one of her vlogs but then she just nuked herself off of social media, it seems. I feel a bit betrayed to see her suddenly ghost her entire fanbase but I really do hope she's alright.

What is the best kind of fake blood to use on a cosplay? I am trying to replicate pic related and I'm not 100% familiar with the Tools of the Trade when it comes to cosplay.
I know to avoid corn syrup based ones but that's it
I'd like to 3D print one or two small parts for a prop (I have the files already) but have no idea where even to begin.
I don't want to buy an entire 3D printer but also don't know what my options are for paying for one. Are there shops that will print just one small thing rather than larger-scale product runs? or am I better off looking for a workerspace or local hobbyist to work with?
Is it expensive? I know it's relatively costly but don't know if it's a case where even something that can fit in the palm of my hand will be over $20.
Checkout the dangerous ladies they do 3d printed commissions!

It’s not even their best chocolate dress. I think it only seemed to be everywhere due to replicas.
It was a big deal at the time. It was hard to get because of the limit of how many items a SS can get just was made. There wasn’t as many local SS to ask either so s hsndful was originally bought from the western comm. But I don’t know if it was considered that big to Japanese Lolita’s
i feel like AP cares more about things that were probably more of a landmark or left the biggest impression on the designers whereas i feel like if Baby were to do something like this they would use pieces that were more historic and iconic along with showing how the designs have changed
What is the difference in something being historic and iconic as opposed to being a landmark?? Aren't those the same??

sophieandtoffee/miniaturesweet are just aliexspress/taobao resellers but if you dont mind paying the mark up its nice to get everything in one order
how bad is the markup?
usually just like charging $1 for 1pc of something when you can get 20pc of that thing for $4
yikes. guess i'll just get some of my molds thru them and get the resin/cabochons on aliexpress

I'm 24. I have wanted to get into lolita since I was 17. I almost bought my first coord when I was 18 but decided against it and now I have major regrets.

I really want to buy a one piece dress and maybe some socks/shoes... I have a specific one in mind that I've fallen in love with.

But I feel guilty about it, even though I have the money, because it would just hang in my closet for 99% of the time. I feel like I would not have anywhere to wear it? I live in the West and I'm 24 so I am afraid wearing it outside would make me look weird. There is only one convention near me, and I don't know if I'm keen on going and wearing Lolita, and I don't know how to join any comms and desu am scared to join comms because I have a crappy past.

Should I just give up on it and admire it from afar?

I know plenty of people who wear and pull of very good sweet styles at 29-35! I don't think starting at 24 is too late! i'm 21 and i just started not that long ago but it's such a wonderful joy in my life. as long as you're responsible about purchases do it! and wear it whenever!! i don't get out much so i'll wear it out to go do errands or go visit friends, i feel good and i usually get compliments from older ladies about it!
this is such a dumb thread, I live in Florida, the worst state in the fucking world. wear lolita anywhere and everywhere- haitian people too stupid to even notice anything. basically binch wear whatever you fucking want. you're a grown ass adult be yo self
Call your local news station and report it with proof? In my town whenever anyone has a problem with a company/local govn't they call the news station and we get a story on their situation. Usually helps inspire public outrage. Seems to work pretty well. But I live in Canada so who knows
I have but I never kept working at a place that did that to their employees. If you can't report it or don't know how, I'd say get a better job.

And bringing back said same cosplayers year after year
Even though they're volunteers they're in a stage show, which makes them a cast (but thanks for playing). And they were Nick's cast so he could be as touchy feely and gropey as he wanted to with the girls. It was no secret that if you complained about it or didn't give him what he wanted he'd change you to a non-speaking part or make you a stage hand or kick you off the cast completely.

metro has been rinse and repeat con since nick and alex bought it. every attempt to change the con has only made it worse and their pitiful attempt at making a new cash-only adult con where they could drink, smoke and fuck all they wanted to failed laughably. anymore they can't even lie convincingly about their failing attendance and its no secret that they have been secretly looking to move the con to Orlando because the convention center is too expensive for them now.
Surprising Fazio hasn't been arrested yet. He'd bang any cast member he could get drunk enough to put out, regardless of her age. I remember him telling one girl "it's not sex if it isn't in your pussy" so she'd give him a blow job. Anyone want to guess why they all wear kilts at the con?

Looks like one pedo sold it to another pedo. Wonder how long before the truth about Alex comes out?

Agree with @worldofgwendana I like his composition but the editing is a mess. Oversatyrdated puke of colors. Reminds me of @kevinerita’s early work.

>The budget thing isn't "a rumor from the ass", maybe do your research before blindly defending whatever it is you feel to need to defend.
Oh yes believing anything on an anonymous image board supplying absolutely no sources is not blind faith at all anon

the afterparty team walking on the stage during the opening ceremony to tell about the event is not proof lmao
What are you on about? It's one thing if you don't follow Desucon's twitter or just didn't pay attention/ don't remember the tweet, but sometime during the organizing of a previous years event (can't remember wether is was Frostbite or summer Desu) Desucon retweeted a tweet by the afterparty organizer mentioning that they got given a 5000 euro budget for the afterparty. It's possible that the tweet got deleted because after a quick search I couldn't find it (then again twitter has the most rubbish search I've ever encountered), but when it was tweeted I even had a talk with about it with others because we found it a weird thing to point out because no other parts of the budget have been publicly mentioned before.
It's actually a bit silly to defend Desucon that hard if you aren't even that familiar with them? Not to mention that if you think there's nothing wrong with having an afterparty then obviously you wouldn't be bothered about them having a high budget, so why the need to desperately claim that it's bullshit? In the first place I don't really understand why so many people here feel the need to latch onto any negative comment (or "negative" in this case) toward Desucon when literally any other con can be shat on with no repercussion. Just let people complain if they feel like it, or at least offer some proof yourself why their complaints are baseless if you're so intent on trying to prove a point.
I'm not disagreeing with what you say but the criticism involving lectures is often rather vague and I don't think anyone gets anything out of that.

"The lectures were not as good as they should've been" doesn't say awfully lot but dropping specific examples and elaborating on them helps. It's a lot easier to take feedback if you actually understand what the feedback is about.
Idk but that doesn't really sound too high so do you have any sources how much other cons budget for them? You have absolutely nothing to back up your claims.

In the post you're replying to it wasn't necessarily a question of if it's high or not, and even then it doesn't matter what other cons give as a budget, but how much of the budget is spent on other parts of the con in comparison.

Why is everyone so hung up on about the budget thing anyway, it had fuck all to do with the argument which was that Desucon has been getting sloppy with their organizing and the original post used the afterparty as an example of focusing on the "wrong" things. The budget tweet was just an example of many, and to be fair something no one actually seems gives a fuck about? Why on earth are there people talking like mentioning the budget tweet is supposedly some huge rumor meant to destroy Desucons reputation when even the post that originally mentioned it didn't pay that much attention to it. I literally can't understand why it's suddenly some big talk of the thread, and especially when reading through the posts it looks like no one even understand what's going on either because everyone is just spewing some bullshit about that they think is going on when in reality there is nothing to it. There's maybe three people in the whole thread who are not about the budget and are actually having a converstation and are on the same page, the rest are for some ungodly reason arguing over a single thing that everyone apparently needs to have an opinion about but no one can understand what the other actually said.
