I meant it's more yellow then my extra clear epoxy so if I want to glue something or fill something with the quiao quiao, you can see a little difference between the 2 type of resin and it bug me a little, but honesty it's not that big, especially if you use only this resin. Don't worry anon , it's me who is a little bit too dramatic.

I also want to know, I want to order a big quantity of quiao quiao, which site is the best between sophie and tofee ( I think it's just re packaged) and miniature sweet hk to have my money back if the batch is bad ?

Also, if I sell my jewlery I'm kind of concerned about the safety of the uv resin, does kiyohara or padico have an industrial standard ( JIS I think in japan ), or it's the same thing as chinese resin ?

personally i've found soufflesong to be quite hit and miss. odd sizing and cheap-outs on materials. don't expect the same level of quality as good brands, but if you like the dress and it'll fit you then buy it t b h.

I've been wondering how flashy our fashion is compared to normal people on the streets in different countries.

I felt likein Tokyo many girls were dresses in a casual cute way and I've been wondering if they were going for lolita, while in my country girls are so lazy, with lazy buns, skinny jeans and some lazy sweaters.

Old school still tends to stand out because of the many ruffles and lace details and overall doll-like aesthetic. I'd say that classic in black can be the most inconspicuous, or possibly toned down gothic, doubly so if it's kuro. Depending on the area you might still stick out like a sore thumb but much less than anything in color.
>>
>>9701163
I was thinking gothic because it's kinda similar to other gothic styles, which most people know about, so they can place it a bit easier
As for old school, I feel like old school is a bit more simple and "straight to the point", where as "modern" lolita is more detailed and intricate, which might make it more confusing for a normie

Classic might blend in a bit more though, but I feel like gothic doesn't get questioned in the same way as maybe sweet or classic
I don't actually know though, I'm just speculating haha
>>
>>9702632
I'm speaking from experience actually, classic in black is likely to still turn heads if women don't typically wear dresses where you live but people don't gawk nearly as often or as obviously as they do if you wear sax or pink.
And when I say "classic" I'm talking about Fanny Rosie level of classic, not the printed chiffon veiled underskirted bullshit mess that people like to call classic these days.
>>
>>9702638
>Fanny Rosie
Ahh, okay, well in that case I can totally see that being the most inconspicuous style
>>
>>9700869
I think all styles stand out, classic probably the least, if it's toned down it likely just reads as vintagey.
People aren't going to gawk at you unless you're full OTT with 3 pettis and wigs and underskirts etc. But where I live doing your hair and wearing a sundress is seen as putting in effort and you stick out somewhat, I imagine old school gothic would have the same or similar effect. So would Fanny Rosie style classic.

>>9702632
I'd imagine gothic is probably quite palatable for normies to see out and about too since as you said, it's easy to just associate it with western goth. It still sticks out but it's understood because western goth can get quite theatrical and most people are familiar with it. Gothic lolita just looks like a frillier counterpart. I wear gothic and people usually just assume it's some kind of weeby version of western goth if anything.

I think it's less about what fashions stick out the most, because let's face it they all do. It's more about dressing appropriately for the occasion. Wearing a dress in a sea of tshirts and jeans might make you stand out a little but not enough to turn heads, if you're really self conscious it's shitty, but you're only going to get overwhelmingly negative attention if you're over/underdressed for the occasion. If you wear casual skirt and jsk coords with minimum poof out shopping or to class/work it'd be fine. But if you showed up in full OTT people probably would gawk at you. But the same goes for normie clothes really, if you show up to work all dressed up like you're going to a club people are going to gawk at you also or at least think you're overly flashy and weird.

Otakorp puts on Otakon, an anime convention now in DC.
Budget meeting this month to finalize a $ 500,000 loan plan. Many mistakes that basic forsight could have avoided thru better leadership have cost Otakorp over a million dollars.
Once the outstanding debts Otakorp has are paid, they're so far in the red right now that they need pre reg to open early (december) and do well and/or get the $ 500,000 loan just to exist past Otakon Vegas. Otakon Vegas has cost Otakorp over a $ 100K a year, but bad staffers wouldn't let it die before now. This was a passion project that violated the ethical and legal requirements to be on a Non Profit Board.
Even with the loan, if Otakon DC 2018 does not seriously out perform Otakon 2017 membership wise, Otakorp will be in the same situation it's in now also dealing with loan payments and an inability to take a second loan and will bankrupt. It's going to take an eight thousand membership spike from the 2017 con turn out to save Otakon.

Why am I putting this here? The Board and the Staff have lengthy discussions about the problem. There are years of issues, inquiries, ect into some of the bad decisions that continued. The board and voting members debated, but those with the most pull always got their way. They have failed the attendees and as a non profit answer to them. If Otakon is a convention you hit up, things are looking really bad. They have an obligation to be more transparent and work to prevent the mess they've created from fully imploding. Even writing this, I've betrayed them but honored the membership.

Otakon attendees, I'm sure some of you will read this. Let it spread like wild fire. I can't talk on this beyond anonymously or the powers that be at Otakorp will use ties they have with other conventions I also work to black list me from doing what I love. They had huge rainy day funds they tore thru, and those funds were from attendees.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHA

>>9699975
Thats why there were so many lgbt panels. The org was trying to be welcoming. Especially with all the altright mass killers lately. This was right after vegas. The majority of you guys are altright. There was almost no diversity except with the asians. Everyone else fit the same mold down to the games everyone liked. the rest of us go are own way. Before anyone mentions the jew owner-a ton of jews are alt-right.
>>
>>9700033

Okay so I want to have an honest conversation with you here. Let me know if anything I'm saying is wrong.

>Youmacon - Detroit's Anime & Gaming Convention

This is what it says on their website, so they are an anime & gaming con. Why is an lgbt organization trying to do anything there in the first place?

I just don't see the connection between Trump and the lgbt.

>Especially with all the altright mass killers lately

Maybe I haven't been following the news but where? I get Muslim terrorists because they always shout ALLAU ACKBAR when they commit their crime. Did an altright killer shout "PEPE" before he gunned people down?

>The majority of you guys are altright

The con was getting a rep as a alt-right safespace. In order to seem welcoming they held a bunch of lgbt panels.

Nothing kills a festival faster than the alt-right. Not a fun group. Even amongst themselves. Trump is the alt-right lighthouse.
>>9700558
My post wasnt bate. Different factors brought a cloud over the con and the participants tried to contract it. P.s A lot of the congoers seemed medicated.

Hi guys, I attended a disaster convention this weekend as a vendor.

Before this con started, it felt pretty scammy. Diet pyramid schemes promoted on the site, 9 cosplay contests, a lot of high dollar prizes and promised attendance to be 5k+. The owner was doing a lot of groundwork advertising the convention around the city + other conventions. A *lot* of sponsors, a deal with the CW, and a lot of already sold vendor spots, so the thought was that maybe it wouldn't be terrible.

The location is in an arena near downtown and is a one room deal. Not too unusual for a first year con, I guess, although the arena was very dark for a convention space.

Load in had no badges for vendors, they're "lost" and the convention head, Malcolm Fledge, is MIA with the badges but is promised to be at the convention soon. He ends up showing up to the convention an hour and a half after it's open. Vendors loading in just got their hands marked in sharpie with a "V" instead of getting a badge.

It turned out the vendor table map is also lost, no one knows who has what table. Vendors told to go "wherever" and some vendors do not get the table space they paid for. I found out later that there were no consistent table prices. Some vendors payed $20, some payed $200+ A vendor told me that Malcolm haggled with him and told him their prices were flexible.

Some vendors are strange third party companies like a tub refinishing company, a gutter company, tile sellers, hair salons. Very strange and flea market styled. The largest vendor space was held by a bootlegger selling a ton of stolen fanart on various items.

Con strictly and aggressively enforces no outside food and drink, forcing vendors to either eat outside in the very strong winds or to eat very shitty arena concession food. Guest vendors weren't able to take breaks because the promised staffer who was to watch their table for them never showed up to let them go.

What's the easiest and quickest way to make a helmet out of cardboard?
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yeblORd7670
>>
You don't because it's a terrible material choice for a helmet unless you really just want a square box on your head

Pretty much this >>9698374
If you're going to put in the time and effort, EVA is not that expensive and there are plenty of tutorials for all kinds of helmets. Just look up Evil Ted Smith.
>>
>>9698349
Ignore the naysayers for they obviously know not what they say. Cardboard is a perfectly respectable medium and you can use essentially the same method you would with foam, that is, having a template for a helmet, tracing the pattern onto the cardboard, and cutting it on and gluing it together.

Contrariwise you can use strips of cardboard to make a form around your head, then piecing that together to get an exact head-shape for your helmet.

Here's some helpful links that got me started.

Actually in other regions apart from America, female-only cons are a thing.
We have lots of Slash(like yaoi, but it is about western fandoms)-only and yaoi only cons, and 99% of the attendees of these cons are female.
Not to mention A LOT of them wear Lolita to the cons.
We do not exclude men. It’s just men automatically choose to not to come to such cons.

marriage is not a big deal dude. There are more important things in life, like literally anything else. The only reason I would ever consider marrying my boyfriend of 12 years is in case medical stuff comes up, and I guess I would like him to have my stuff if I die. But I am pretty sure I can have both of those things taken care of by a lawyer and some contracts outside of marriage.

I don't have friends in lolita community, that's low bait.

The problem is that our country has so much potential for holding nice events, and even with that, we have to stick with con-meets or whatever. We have two nice yearly events, and none of these are supported by our ambassador. She doesn't even live here in our country anymore, it's stupid.

Maybe she doesn't look totally on point, but I do think she is explaining the fashion quite well. I like that she's stressing that lolita doesn't have to be 'escapism' and that it is (/can be) just for fun.
