Simple, just post the worst and best things that had happen to you while wearing jfash, no matter if they're really bad, meh, okay-ish or really good.

Best: I went to my sister's place after a meet and my nephew loved how I looked. I was wearing toned down sweet lolita. Now she wants to wear lolita too.
Worst: Someone tried to lift my skirt on the train once. I gave him the stare.

Sounds like she was severely projecting more than anything.
i hope you responded to that lady with some snark
you didnt play along and its their job to make people happy. if you smiled and acted excited he wouldnt have embarrassed you like that
What the fuck, no anon. You don't do things that will single out and embarrass your guests.
I went to magic kingdom recently too in Jfashion and was left almost alone until I went into one of the restaurants to eat. An older woman all the way down the serving counter came over and asked me what character I was dressed as. I told her I just wanted to dress up (aka look nice because first trip to Disney World) and she hollered back at a male server "She just wanted to dress up!" before walking back to him.

I was pretty embarrassed by it since I wasn't wearing anything too out of the ordinary all things considered.

...Wow this is embarrassing. Uh, Mary Tudor never had children.

Maybe anon is descended from that tumor that made Mary I think she was pregnant? :O

Five bucks says anon is American. I met a chick from like Illinois or someshit who swore up and down she was descended from Anne Boleyn.

I blame Michael Hirst and Phillipa Gregory for turning Tudor history into an even more outrageous soap opera than it already was.
*Mum is what makes me suspicious. The first thing every unstable American chick does the minute she starts insisting she's likes totes English is they insist on using Englsh spelling.

They even have a term for this: Anglophile. I believe the term is derived from the Ancient Greek word for Insufferable Autist.
At the rate the Portuguese royal family went, who isn't related to those randy Catholic bastards?

Old Thread autosaged >>9232909

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

this has got to be the weirdest AM shill i have encountered.
I mentioned this as it's got a mix of some nice pieces with some decent styling mixed with poor styling, and guys with face fuzz,as has been discussed earlier here. I just find it sad that Boz keep working with AM after the shit they pull.

I don't know why you're replying to me. I already have my pass. It's sort of why I'm asking about a hotel room, retard.
I think that's one of the actors at the faire because everytime I've gone they're always there and they have one of the scarborough people walking with them
Anything going on in or near Texarkana?
I feel this so hard. I hate rando rooming and room stuffing but I'm not about to front that kind of cash for a shit location.

Also a Viktor cosplayer here, anon. Do you know how to skate? No judgment if you dont, i just get excited to meet other YoI fags who also skate.

Saw this in the idol thread and thought why not do it for all cosplay in general. Fill the grid as best you can with cosplays you'd like to do or have already done for each colour. Pipe dreams are okay.

Has anyone here used paperboard for props or costumes? How well does it accept fiberglass resin? I recently gained access to a laser cutter and unlimited paperboard - I kind of want to make a Kylo Ren helmet with laser-cut foam or sintra for the filigrees but I already have a repainted Black Series helmet.
well people do cardstock to fiber glassresin all the time with pepakura projects so i dont see why it shouldnt work?
unless paperboard reacts differently to the resin. I guess you can always do a small test with it.
You cant laser cut sintra. It will make toxic fumes and can damage the laser. So Ive heard at least.
Sintra is just PVC, ain't it?

don't do it senpai
don't cut sintra, pleather, plastic pipes, or garbage bags with a laser

It wouldn't damage the laser itself since the laser emitter is way in the back of the machine

Eyebrows look good but yeah calm down with the face lines next time. Also, is there any way to redo your chest piece? The pecs are way too small compared to the abs. They should be around twice their current size while the abs should be smaller and closer together. It's a very interesting idea though and a good way to attempt to look like a tank at such a low body weight!
Thank you based anon, I love her stuff
As stated prior, I wish to redo the whole outfit...We winged the shirt a couple days prior to the con. Foam and glue and hope.

Gonna have more time now so hopefully we can produce something better...Or get a better muscle suit.
The outfit as a whole (at least the top half) looks pretty good for the amount of time you had. Even if on short notice, that chest piece is very good compared to many of the foam ones I've seen in the past. I hope you post some progress pics or the final product because I'd definitely like to see the improvements you make!
I really like the eye makeup and eyebrows desu

Ask, share stories and horrors. Help others out with their laundry questions.

You can't be serious. Now you know why people avoid you at meet-ups.

I also throw all my petis in the wash, and like all lolita items, put them in laundry bags/nets individually, cold or at 30 degrees celsius at the highest. Not the dryer though, the material they're made of air dries fast enough.

The "throw it in the washing machine" only works if you live alone though, and don't risk other people throwing in random shit or starting the washer on a harsh program.

My stupid parents washed everything as hot as possible with too much detergent, ruined a shitton of my normie clothes that way. And wondered why all of their whites turned grey overtime.

Yes, and do it now. For how long have you had it sitting around with dog pee on it? Dog pee might make colors bleed (ammonia!) where detergent does not.

It's synthetic, right? That just goes into a net and into the washing machine, cold, and then hung up to dry. Don't put it in the dryer and it should be fine.
Steam the shit out of them. It's worked so well for everything I ever got that was smelly, from second hand pieces to weird synthetic smell from new pieces, that I sweat by it.

I now also steam all of my wool normie items, it works better than washing them on a gentle cycle.
swear, not sweat
I live in a shitty rental and my sink has no plug, but I was thinking of using a giant saucepan and then the bath to rinse. Never thought of using camomile, I don't think I can get it back to pale cream without the grey potentially showing through so I was thinking of going proper beige.
Feel you on the shitty rental (I don't miss that) but a saucepan should work.

If you think beige will go with your wardrobe them go for it. Maybe test out some different teas on scrap fabric (like dishcloths) until you find a good colour that isn't too salmon coloured. My gut feeling is that even coffee might be better for beige than black tea.

Hey there, folks. For the past few years I've been doing the audio work for my friends' skits and they've won more often than not in that category (I mean, cosplay skits, so it's not like there's much competition). I've been doing this kinda thing for a fair few years now.

But since the audio component of cosplay skits is usually woefully underdone, I was wondering if any seagulls would be interested in this sort of service (that is, having someone else do all the mixing and mastering). I'm not advertising, honestly just doing an interest check. Honestly I have no idea how much I should charge for this kind of thing if anyone's interested at all. If photographers can get in on this kinda thing, I'd assume sound kids would have their own little niche.

And, uh, general non-costuming commission thread? Photography, and whatever else. Not much is coming to mind.

Related, an early one I did where I had to deal with headset-tier/laptop-mic recordings.
A futile last bump
Just in general I feckin hate it when people expect you to do all the work AND then they'll pay you if they love it. Art isn't free guys.

For people who've been into Lolita for 5+ years: what are some things that you've never owned or done that are strange for people who have been it for years not to?

My list after 10 years-
>worn any hair accessory other than a headband
>worn rocking horse shoes or tea parties
>owned an offbrand main piece
>been in a comm
7 replies omitted. Click here to view.
Starting 6 years

> owned brand jewelry
> been in a comm
> wore a full lolita brand outfit (if including accessories)
> wore a full set
> wore a wig for lolita
> own or worn gothic shoes
> worn circle lenses or falsies
> never owned a parasol
> worn a bonnet
> commissioned something to match a lolita outfit
> sold clothes online
Starting my 10th year:
>Never owned bloomers
>Never been to an lolita-only con and/or tea party
>Never worn a wig with a lolita outfit
>Never owned a Victorian Maiden piece, but I plan to change that
>Never been in a comm, even an online one
>Never posted one of my outfits on Facebook, Instagram, Tumblr... The only one thing I will probably never do.
In my 6 years I've never:
>bought a lucky pack
>owned or worn teaparties
>twinned with someone
>worn or owned a full matching set
>bought from taobao myself (always relied on comm group orders)
>truly had a favourite brand
>cut the bangs on a wig
anon, I'm the same with teaparties and RHS. I think they look hideous. Teaparties always look vaguely age-play ish to me. Not that I actually think anyone wearing them is into that, they just look like little girl shoes.

I'm on the fence about bloomers. I think I'll get at least one in the near future. But black ones. If I don't like them with lolita I'll wear them as pajamas.

Same with the brand jewelry, most of it looks really cheap.
Into my 5th year.
>Never wore rocking horse shoes.
>Never wore circle lenses.
>Never tried gothic
>Worn/owned a trendy accessory
>No roomwear or PJs
>No novelty items
>Have never visited any brand shops.
>Never been to any brand events (tea parties, fashion shows)
>Bought a Kera/GLB
>Never bought or wore a taobao main piece
I guess that's common now but back when I started Taobao was just starting to be a thing. I still barely even look at it. Everyone I know now starts out with Taobao. I never cared for most releases to be honest.

Sorry, should've included the link to what I'm looking at
This is actually from F+F
Yes, my mother bought a purple vibrator. Didn't ask her experience, and i don't plan to. I saw those sex eggs on AE though, that might be safer than a dildo or whatever.
check their reviews. If none on that product check out something similar in their store to see if it got good reviews
I think I've found my new favourite store thank u anon
