Now that summe's basically over and the Western school year is starting it's time to have another Nanchatte Seifuku/School Uniforms/General Preppy thread! Here's some stuff to jump start the thread

>> Have you found any brands (Japanese or not) that goes well with the style?
>> Do you have any coordinates ready for the start of the school year?
>> What are some trends you've noticed that you think will go well with nanchatte?

I love the whole burberry scarf look, but they are so expensive.
I own a fake one, but it feels like it's super obvious it's fake. Wonder if they are wearing real or fake ones.

(been having this picture for 6 years now and still haven't figured out who model#3 is)
You can always go the Taobao route. Nanchatte is pretty big so there are a lot of Japanese and Korean styled uniform shops.
Probably fake ones unless their parents are rich or they were the kind of kogal that did dating for money which was how students afforded brand name items like that and LV purses.
Thrift stores are your friends for the basics like blouses and skirts, I’d say thrift for the basics and then save for the nicer stuff (loafers/mary janes, school bags, bows, cardigans etc etc)

Shoe thread? Shoe thread.

Share your shoe collection, discuss recent purchases/coords, etc etc

Personally I'd love to see some shoes that aren't teaparties. I like them enough, but I want to see some other classic or casual footwear.

W_Phoenix is pretty cheap and the quality is good.
I ordered these from W_Phoenix (pic).
Will probably order the same RHS in different colors next time.
I also really want a pair from Antaina, they carry various RHS styles as well and quality is pretty ok.
I recommend using an SS to order them though if you don't want to pay too much on shipping.
Antaina ships directly to foreign customers but they only offer expensive shipping, so beware.

>want cute shoes

Eh, maybe, but I can cover it with bangs easily. I don't cosplay characters without them because of my 5head.
My sister cannot where glasses and can't have lasik but she always take character that she like with glasses, because removing them could be dangerous because she is blind as a bat, there is always a solution, but people sometime never think about the little detail that ruin the magic .
*cannot wear contacts
excuse me
>alt fashion choices have no place in an alt fashion

Honestly everything is case by case

If you have well-kept hairm dyed pink, and you wear sweet, it can work fine. If you have tattoos or piercings and you wear goth, it can work fine. There's no one "rule" about it that can apply to all situations.

Except cosplay, I mean, if you don't look like the character you've failed at the end of the day.
And septums can be flipped up to be hidden completely.

Your piercing sucks more than your friend's. Deal with it.

soo adorable

I love poofy hair to match a poofy sk
more gorgeous poofy hairdos
When I try it they end up angular instead of round
That usually happens when you aren't moving the iron enough. You need to rolls and curl it up, not just twist your hair and hold it. It might take a couple turns if your curler/straightener isn't hot enough, but it's still doable as long as you're slowly twisting the straightener.

Have you guys every bought a lolita related item that you regret sending your money on? Maybe it was something that came damaged, or doesn't suit your taste, or isn't as high quality as you expected it to be??

I bought some AP socks off of lacemarket and seller didn't mention the disgusting, dirty foot on them. Yes I used oxyclean for hours to no avail. At least I know now that they're clean, but it still grosses me out.

From Wunderwelt, so I'm not sure how old they were. I do live near Seattle so it might have been humidity, thanks anon.
Imagine how some people live (watch hoarders) and what they consider "in good condition", rotten, with mold and full of rodent feces. The description from individual sellers is always such a gamble, if the pictures aren't clear, abort. A fatty trying to get rid of a piece she irreversibly ruined is almost guaranteed to send you something godawful. Taking the shirring out alone is considerable damage imo.
w-would you sell it?
holy shit i wanted to buy (a replica of) this as a newbie lolita on aliexpress
glad i didn't do it then

I was just on an oldfag rant and you were the last to complain in the thread. I did specifically say that was an example of what I didn't like so I thought that'd be pretty clear. But again my point was if you ran out of clearcut things to post what makes you think other people haven't? I posted some but I'm not going to post every single one I've been posting for years now.

I can't make out the writing but it's most likely Moitie. They've made very similar bags at least.
Looks like it says Classical Puppets. IIRC they made the coffin purse a few years ago now.
I feel like classic/gothic is just gothic lolita that is dark but doesn't use a lot of overtly gothic elements but is still elegant. Like, if I post a coord and it's kinda gothic but not very very gothic, I will also tag classic lolita. Or if I wear classic brands but wear them with more gothic styling.

Book 3 I believe (I have the compilation book). Maybe it's not as bad as I make it out to be but it does fit a bit like a tube and the construction with the bib and darts gives it an odd shape.
Oh nooo... I just bought some fabric to use with this pattern. Can you describe what's wrong with it? Or suggest anything to improve the fit?
Oh it's that easy ! thank you very much !
maybe the problem is that the model seems to have a very small cup size. not sure what yours is, but most japanese paterns are made for an A or B cup, any bigger should be altered

Whats wrong with this? Looks fine to me
Pretty good but those brows need more work...
not the anon who posted it but
>wonky eyebrow
>poorly blended cheek contour
>shaky eyeliner application
not the worst i've seen but there are definitely flaws that could be addressed
I guess I stopped blending too early cause I was afraid of fucking everything up severely lol i see what you mean tho. I'll think "softer" next time.
your eyeshadow was a little bit wonky but it's ok, love your style ! You make me think of nina hagen but in a cuter way ( and nice rat !)

So here I am sitting at work with my coffee, about two clicks away from D.C. thinking whether I should stop by and "visit" this evening. I don't even have a badge, and don't care to buy one. I've outright snuck into the formal ball before, the only event worth going too, closest to the reason why most people go in the first place: to grab a girl to back to their hotel room and get laid.

What used to be a fun convention among all my friends has now devolved into an empty circle-jerk of obsessed hobbyists, hot celebrity cos-players who nothing but photoshoot, and poor friendless autists whose highlight of their year is to spend a few expensive days watching anime in a panel with strangers they don't even know.

You go to the "Voice Actors After Dark Panel" maybe, to relive the childhood thrill of "staying up" with pillows and blankets - only to be affronted with the sight of aging PC feminists droning on and on about what annoys them, sitting next to what appears to be a 40 something otaku, laying on his stanky breath in your direction at 3:00 in the morning.

You step outside and look up at the late summer night sky and wonder, "what is my life?"

Then on Sunday, like the world doesn't even care, they pack up their, equipment, and money, and leave, turning the Walter E. Convention Center back into dreary center of business that it really is, as you return to your job next Monday morning.

But hey, there are some hot cos-players there right? Well you can't even sneak past the front door anymore. So yeah.

*sips covfefe* Have fun.

Had a fun time at AX, but didn't cosplay. Thinking about going next year, is VIP worth the price?
They're mailing the 4 day passes next year so not really.
Vip is worth it if you need one of the following:

Get into the exhibit hall early/first
You go to a lot of panels
Want to book your hotel before others
Want to buy concert tickets first

Exhibit hall and tickets can be priceless benefits if there's a guest you like coming
