It's not worth $700. It's not totally terrible but yea, definitely not worth that price
Its the waterproof thick plastic satin they make cheap shower curtains and table cloths out of. Its easy to wipe clean, which... I'm guessing is an intended feature.
Those poor shoes, holy crap!

Post about things that make you nostalgic (cosplay or lolita/general jfash!)
It can be pics,stories,...everything as long as you keep it /cgl/ related!

Pic very related. I miss coming back home from school and going on EGL on Livejournal.
I also kinda miss old internet in general (before 2010), and being so carefree.

Another anon here saying please do this. EGL wardrobes are helpful, but only until you buy or sell something. I have a spreadsheet where I keep track of everything, but not having pics sucks.

Common sense would say that shirring with corset lacing is the best option of you fluctuate that much. Ditch the unshirred pieces for stuff you can wear more often.
Yeah, by 4lbs, not 30.

It's more that you mention you phase in and out of certain styles. So if you're "in" to one style and out of the other, you can pack up the style you're not currently into, wait until you're out of the other one and into this one again, and swap the entire style. It's not really that the clothes are available for you to in the same way it would be if you had it hanging in a seperate closet, it's more that you can swap entire style closets when you fall in and out of love with them.


That's how I didn't notice my weight fluctuating. I started wearing those more often, then had a shock one day when I realised I didn't really fit properly into a shirred dress the same way I used to.

Seriously though, don't worry about me. the fluctuations are more like I overate this year, and diet down to skinny next year. Working on keeping better track of my eating habits so I stop putting on weight, it's just this one spot in the year where we get really slammed at work and then my eating goes to shit. I'm trying out mealprep next year to see if it stops my weight fluctuating so much.

btw >>9716591 was my comment, >>9716805 isn't.

I collect BJD's! Surprisingly don't own a lolita specific doll, but I have some in other jfash.

Have you considered Pullips? They're not my aesthetic but I know at least AP has released some.

Since the last one had a few bits of Dota sprinkled through it we may as well group all of the ARTS games together to hopefully keep things maybe slightly more active.

>i really dont want this thread to die
I really want to attempt to cosplay Cyberpunk Zoe, but I'm clueless as to how I would make the wig work without it being five bajillion pounds. Does anyone have any suggestions? I was thinking maybe incorporating some type of ribbon for the green things, but I feel like that would look so bad..

Participate in grinch check.

No, but you’d better send a gift as well as proof of shipment to us as per the rules.
imho people who don't reply at all or post their gift photos in the thread or offer any sort of thanks take a bit of the fun out of it. i wouldn't want to be paired with someone known to never respond or post.
SH here, I have been looking at rings recently but I'm always interested in anything choco too!

Yes, not doing that is grinching, as I stated, my concern is about not responding being an issue, as I stated.

Dress light and bring water, leave before it officially closes
Is it worth it to do the whole, arrive by 6-7 and wait in line?
Only if you want something that you know is going to sell out fast (like industry merch of a popular series or stuff from a popular circle).
One more quick question, when does it close each day? Isn't it pretty early, like 3?
It generally closes at 4PM each day.
According to the website the corporate booths in the west hall are open an hour longer until 5PM for the first two days and the cosplay changing rooms close an hour early (3PM) on the final day.

Saw this earlier on youtube, seems accurate:

Hello, my gf is into these kinds of gothic dresses. Can someone give me a rundown of what are considered "top brands" with this style? I know the ones she has now are like Metamorphosis or Naoto, but I have no idea what people consider high end.
1 reply omitted. Click here to view.
apologies, I don't lurk these boards and just saw that J-fashion was allowed.
There are several high-end Japanese gothic lolita brands, but even though they're all gothic their style is quite different from the gothic stuff Metamorphose and h.NAOTO put out. Metamorphose has some gothic releases but it's considered primarily one of the big three sweet lolita brands, alongside Angelic Pretty and Baby the Stars Shine Bright, although their OTT ruffly gothic style is a little similar to Atelier Pierrot. h.NAOTO is more punky and distressed - some of their couture stuff is similar to the conceptual high fashion brand Alice Auaa, and some of their casualwear is similar to the more mass-market (now-defunct) brands Black Peace Now and Putumayo. Moi-meme-Moitie and Atelier Boz are the most popular gothic brands but they're much more plain and severe than either Metamorphose or h.NAOTO typically are so your girlfriend might not like them, while Sheglit and Antique Beast are somewhere in the middle. I honestly can't say what would appeal to your girlfriend specifically without knowing her tastes (or her size range).
One place to check out would be Lacemarket. It's a secondhand site that has an extensive brand list. Click around, find out which brands seem to have a style your girlfriend likes. If you're looking to get her a Christmas present, that's not a bad place to find one. Many of the dresses are in new or like new condition. Just make sure to check the sizing in comparison to your girlfriend's current closet.
Going off experience just ask her what's on her wishlist and shell out the money for it. A better guarantee that you'll get what she likes.
>get a $500 Visa prepaid
>Tell her that her present hasn't been sent to her yet, but she can get it with this
>Have a bunch of lolita shopping sites up and show some genuine excitement over what she's choosing
>Keep up the pressure on that hoe till she buys something

I was thinking today (a dangerous pastime, I know) about all the articles the news has put out over the years about lolita fashion. I started to google them a little and figured it could be fun to have a thread to talk about them, share them, discuss which outlets did better. I'll dump as many as I can find!

That wasn't badly written.

>“When I travelled to Canada wearing Lolita,” says Leung, “I thought the people would be more open-minded than in Hong Kong, but it is not so. Most of them dress in just trousers, and if they see you in Lolita they will take your photo without permission. It’s the same in China.

>“I am lucky to live in Hong Kong.”

Sounds familiar.

At least she can't afford 'Angel Pretty'
I'm still miffed that the Houston Chronicle got my name wrong when naming people in photos.
What an edgelord.

How do people react when you wear lolita in public? Have your co-workers commented on the fact that you wear hime kaji every day? What does your family say about fairy-kei? Talk about reactions to your favorite out-their fashions here! Good experiences, bad experiences, I wanna hear them all! Of particular interest to me is people who wear their chosen fashions daily, and not in big groups like meetups, but all are welcome.

What are considered "top brands" with this style?
Lmao what? Nayrt but that's clearly not what anon meant. People from all walks of life act/say things on impulse all the damn time, especially when they're surprised, as they often are when they see something they're not used to, like lolita fashion. And sometimes some of these people are irrationally aggressive in a way that they wouldn't be when dealing with anything else because again, they're not thinking things through.
Nice reach though.
i hope youre a well meaning BF trying to look up this shit for your GF for xmas or something

Can we get a lolita wedding thread going?
I'm feeling all fluffy talking about getting married and I'd love to see more inspiration for a lolita wedding.

Dresses, food, decor, venues, anything you can think of that would make a lolita wedding great.


>Would you ever get married in lolita?

>Would you make your bridesmaids wear lolita?

>Would you want your other half to wear ouji/lolita?

There’s an ita in my comm that’s apparently getting married in lolita.
That's only if you think lolita is childish. I WISH I thought of the idea to have a lolita wedding dress. I spent over 800 USD for my dress and it was even at a consignment store meaning it was used. These lolita wedding dresses are gorgeous and if your already gonna drop that much cash for a dress you're going to wear once, it might as well be one of these if you are a lolita for life.
Oh god, I can't look at this without remembering that one ita on lolita amino and her "shiro hime" wedding cosplay. The quality seemed iffy to begin with but it's shit-tier just by association now.

>Would you make your bridesmaids wear lolita?

Huh. That would actually be a good use of all the mutiple colourway dresses I keep hoarding.
I wish I could be into the idea of a lolita wedding ceremony, but the dresses are kind of short for me. I really do want a floor length robe. I already talked in the last thread about how I want an Edwardian gown so I won't harp on that. But I was thinking for my wedding reception that I could wear my Soupir d'ange JSK, or even Madeleine. I think it would be a perfect way of incorporating my love of lolita into my wedding without compensating my love of floor length lace.

I think too much about weddings nowadays but all my friends are kind in that phase so it's hard not to.

>Would you make your bridesmaids wear lolita?
Good question, but probably not. Not sure if I'll even have bridesmaids, haha!

>Would you want your other half to wear ouji/lolita?
No, because he's not into it.


Man I loved that video. She was so cool about it even if she isn't into lolita. I loved her explanation.
