Last one autosaged.

Just want to say thanks to the NYC mod who started making public meets. I know the NYC drama thread was a shit show but we really appreciate you putting in effort into making this comm better.
>>
Does anyone else have that one group in their comm that only seem to go to meets to take pictures for Instagram and then take turns to all compliment each other. I think some of them refer to each other more by their Instagram names than their real names.
>>
>>9399437
Not in my comm but it does remind me of that scene in Deerstalkers with Milkyfawn.
>>
>>9399437
Almost everyone I know posts pics from recent meets on Insta, but I don't think they go to meets just to take pictures. Our comm is not huge and we all follow each other. I think it's just nice to like or complement each others coords, builds a good comm atmosphere.
>>
>>9399425
I mean the first one was a crowd of the usuals at the tea party. But the second one sees friendly. Just sucks they needed to feel warm under the peter pan collar to get their shit together.

Their obligation to their image as this perfect comm still outweighs any motivation to make it a perfect comm.
>>
Any fun, non-traditional meet ideas? My comm is getting a little tired of the cafe/high tea/museums/themed party/movie circuit.
>>
>>9399501
>first one was a crowd of the usuals

Yeah makes me wonder if they planned it, but its probably just because those are the rich girls who can drop reservation $$ instantly on a spot.

Like I'm just glad Y is making an effort. I don't know how much she actually cares for the comm vs her image, but she seems to be the only who is doing something vs just whining.
>>
Does anyone know anything about the Los Angeles Lolita community? Is it worth getting to know them or is there a lot of drama? For a big city I don't hear much about them, which I suppose is a good thing.
>>
>>9399518
This gets asked every fucking thread. Check last thread and the archives. FFS.
>>
>>9399517
The tea party was sold out in under an hour. I'm thinking it had to be pre-announced to that inner crowd.

That aside. I'm looking forward to SM. Was hoping to run to to NY local gulls and lone lolita rather than the usual cliques
>>
>>9399536
Join the fashion show. Lots of people say it's cringe but it is the best way to meet a lot of lolitas and make friends. Yeah there are some itas every year but also some amazingly dressed girls. I find that is where a lot of the cliques intertwine.
>>
>>9399536
Ok I'm glad I'm not the only one who had that suspicion.. Like "see we made a public meet but I guess its only our friends that paid and want to go"
>>
>>9399516
Mod of an average-sized comm here! I'm giving you a few suggestions at the top of my mind of things that have been done in my comm or that people have suggested we do in the future :
(sorry about the long post)
Bowling
Karaoke (ideally with private rooms)
Laser tag
Treasure hunt or photo-rally across the city
Indoors ice skating
Escape room
Go apple-picking in the fall
Playing board games or card games (lolita-themed or not)
Craft/sewing meet. You can either have someone teach everybody a new technique (embroidery, felting...) or make the same item (writcuffs, beret decorating) or each bring your personal projects to work on
Going to a shooting range/archery range/axe throwing range
Hair/makeup workshop where you all teach each other your tips and tricks
Botanical garden, aquarium, farmette or zoo visit
Ghost tours
18+ : visiting a winery/brewery, going to a burlesque show in ero lolita, have a drink at a place with cute cocktails
Swap meet to buy, sell and trade dresses
Going to a fair or festival in your town
Keep an eye out for the public events hosted by other street fashion communities in your area (other j-fashions, goth, steampunk), a lot of the time they will be happy to have you and it makes a great excuse for crossover coords.
Also, themed meets depending on the place you're going and the time of the year can always be fun! (making the theme non mandatory so that everyone can attend)
>>
Really am tired of SQ in HLC. She got into a bitch fit because the other Houston comm scheduled their meet the same as their Easter meet up. I was so uncomfortable at the meet and greet she hosted as well. She has fucking ADD or something because she kept missing at the mall and forced us to play in the cold. We're freezing our asses of playing stupid games...
>>
>>9399437
My comm has meets where they do end up being a photoshoot. Everyone asking for their photo to be taken and to take selfies. Can last an hour or be the whole meet depending on where and what the meet is.
>>
>>9399569
New tag... I'm taking these ideas :3

>>9399834
I'm sorry anon. I heard about this. :( I hope next meet treats you well. I don't think there's any conflict going on but I have been hearing rumors that Stevie is being a cunt. Not just towards HLS mods but others too.
>>
>>9399546
I've actually done it before and was planning on applying in a few days when I get my camera lol

I did it two years ago and the only person I could talk to was a girl who didn't exactly know what lolita was at the time but she was very sweet and eager to learn via the show. Other than that it was awkward jojo posing from the cliques and loners who knew better and kept to themselves.

>>9399556
There's no way it couldn't be. As a mod I'm sure she pitched the ideas to her friends first who immediately put up the money. Save like the last few seats, the waiting list is everyone who caught the post in time and could immediately pay up.

I don't care either way. I can't go to these first come first serve event because my last sale on lacemarket fucked up my PayPal til may. Which made me realize how unfair it was to those without PayPal but had money.
>>
>>9400218
They wouldn't allow venmo or anything? Unfortunate
>>
>>9399834
What's SQ doing in Houston? Doesn't he play music on the internet on a show called Midnight Snacks?
>>
>>9400252
wrong SQ. nice attempt at a namedrop tho.
>>
>>9400252
Who is this?
>>
>>9400252
No you're thinking of Goku Sanchez
>>
>>9399834
This is why I stay in the other comm.
>>
>>9399834
Her attitude is so annoying. She's much older than the other comm members and feels like she has to be bitchy towards everyone. You would think an almost 30 year old woman would have better things to do than boss around younger high school/college age people.
>>
>>9399437
We certainly have this group of girls who are popular online and care more about doing photo-worthy things than actually interacting with the rest of the comm. One meetup organised by one of these girls we ended up spending two hours in front of a building taking coord shots and selfies - yet no group shot. The building was right at a very busy street in the middle of downtown and we were super exposed to the midday weekend foot traffic and kept being approached by random people asking wtf was going on and taking photos without asking. I'm not someone who cares about posting to COF and was standing to the side in a rather toned-down outfit so I was the one constantly being approached by curious people asking for an explanation. When I go out in lolita alone I never get this much attention. It felt kind of like being roped into a street performance against my will. It made me so uncomfortable and, being super introverted, I was exhausted before the meetup even really got started. At least some girls got a coord picture with a fancy backdrop, though.
>>
>>9399516
Aquarium, laser tag, at our recent meet we got together and played Pokémon go.
>>
>>9400494
Wait what?! Stevie's that fucking old? BITCH TOLD ME SHE WAS 24.
>>
Hi! NY Gull here. I tend to keep to myself. As people have said, it's probably for the better.
>>
I feel like there are only 2-3 good lolita's in my community, myself included. I'm sick of seeing ita-tastic coordinates at meets, half assed bullshit. even the "special" group have so many ita's i don't even want to join them, even though its damn tempting
>>
>>9400589
Feel this. There are only like 4-5 good lolitas in this COUNTRY. Everyone else is a cosplay mess. It's a pity.
>>
>>9400453
The other comm isn't that much better, but it's improving. Be careful though, a few of those mods aren't perfect angels either.
>>
>>9401428
In my honest opinion HLS mods are alright compared to the HLC mods, they're pretty chill. But seriously it's better than being apart of HLC, the drama is getting to be a bit much. HLS is not perfect of course but at least they're trying their best I guess.

I'm a lone lolita and my city/country has a comm but from what I've seen it's mildly ita so I'd rather not join. I also recently found out that some extremely well dressed and slightly e-famous (because of good coords, not because of drama) lolitas live in my city. I don't actively browse the comm's social media but at least when I stumble upon their pics, those well-dressed lolitas are never on them.

> tfw I'd like to get to know them but can't approach them since I don't have any social media

> tfw forever alonelita
>>
>>9401428
The only one I can think of is K. She gets offended by everything but at least apologizes. I don't think they're perfect but none of them are lying, manipulative bitches like SQ
>>
What are the communities in SEast UK (outside London) like? I saw a lolita on the train last week and my lone lolita heart skipped a beat.
>>
>>9401599
This is why I always tell people in your situation to just join the damn comm. Clearly there are well dressed people around but they don't have the chance to see each other. Be a visible well dressed person. Maybe you will attract more of the same. I hate when people bitch about how ita the comm is without joining or doing anything to improve the lolita community in their location.
>>
>>9401609
Although she has a tone, she's pretty sweet.
>>
>>9401609
Seriously what evidence you have to back up that claim about SQ? Geuinely interested. You can't point fingers at SQ and let K get away with being an actual cunt. She's blocked so many of her fellow comm members, including me, over the stupidest and smallest shit. Most comm members in both HLS and HLC either avoid her or outright hate her for her shitty attitude. Honestly wouldn't be surprised if one of y'all is K talking shit or selfposting.
>>
>>9399536
>once attended an NYCgulls meetup
>only like 6-7 girls total showed up
>2 girls didn't talk the whole time
>2 annoying itas who didn't wanna talk about anything but CGL and dramu
Honestly with how awkward that meet was I don't blame people for sticking with their cliques or lonelita-ing, I love CGL but so many of us are better behind the keyboard.
>>
>>9401655
huh... I guess I really needed to hear that. Thanks anon, now I feel more confident about joining the comm!
>>
My tiny local comm went to cat show on Saturday and an old man came up and showed us photos he took of the Portland comm. They must have been to a cat show in the Portland area too.
>>
>>9401662
K is too proud to be here. So she wouldn't give it the time or day to salty bitches. She has a stick up her ass but she still doesn't spread false rumors. You want proof? Tell her to take out her fucking ID and stop telling people she's in her twenties. You want proof? Talk to the Japanese Festival staff and let them tell you the reason why she didn't get to host the J-Fashion show. You want proof? Why is she throwing shade at the HLS Mods on her personal fb. She was the one starting shit and putting everyone on blast and still acts all innocent. She's nothing but a lying and manipulative bitch. It would not surprise me either if she's the one starting crap on this thread and making it seem people are "attacking" her just so she can be relevant. She's even a proud "salt mom" which she didn't shut up about at the meet and greet.
>>
>>9401953
She's still in her twenties. Want proof? Her birth year is on her FB profile. Also, you must not have any context as to how we and the Q's were treated both years by the Japanese Festival. I was in several of the Festival's Jfashion shows shows and no matter who is running it, the Festival screws them over. Were you not there to see what happened when Kate W was in charge? Obviously not, because we were treated TERRIBLY. SQ left, the show wasn't taken from her - take it from someone who has seen the Festival show's drama unfold over a few years. Facts. Throwing shade at HLS mods? Please, please provide screen caps because that's a giant fucking lie. What happened with the planning conflict was an accident and you can easily check the event page and HLC page with Zaid's comments to see that there was no "drama". So try again. "Salt mom" is a damn joke. They have this thing where comm members throughout the South call them their parentals, it's an ongoing joke that pretty much everyone knows about. It seems to me that you're either a salty member of HLS who has a vendetta/reason to clear K's shitty reputation or some newb to the comm who has a stick up their ass. Get over yourself. Honestly, you sound like you're K or Neko.
>>
>>9402011
I volunteered last year at the Japanese Festival. SQ stopped working with us because she was bad mouthing Dugfinn. That's not a lie. Whatever happened between the staff is on them but that was going around for awhile....
>>
>>9402011
You know people lie on the internet right?
>>
>>9402011
Dropping names and accusing others. Are you sure you're not SQ? K does talk shit here I'll give you that. I don't know the other one to be honest. She always seems quiet.
>>
>>9402011
Lmao is this Bree
>>
>>9402011
Shut the fuck up Bree. They talk shit about you too.
>>
>>9402011
Sounds like it. Show me the receipts where SQ hasn't? Please prove me wrong because even Dugfin has heard about SQ's fucking mouth. Most of this shit might be lies, but it doesn't hide the fact that SQ is seriously deluded. Sounds like you are too.

I also live in the south, no one says that shit honey. No one.
>>
>>9402011
HLS doesn't do anything so stop dragging them into your fucking drama.
>>
>>9399518
Majority are nice
>>
Not from HLC but from a com SQ was in before. I was an ita those days and our com was a mess, but SQ was always genuinely nice to me and everyone. One of the few legitimately nice-to-everyone people we had those days. We had a nasty spread lies about her and I think since she was newer at the time, she's had a hard time shaking them.
I'm not anywhere near HLC so I don't know what's going on there, but I find it hard to believe she'd drastically changed.

She's definitely in her 20's, lol. I've also seen/heard mutual friends refer to her as 'salt mom' in an endearing sense.

sage to not bump drama
>>
>>9402890
I don't find it that hard to believe but it could be a stretch. More than one person has claim this and when I went to the source, said source claimed that SQ was not being the nice person ever.
>>
I don't even think there is a comm in my small ass town. So I'm a lone lolita.. And if there was it would be ita tastic.
>>
>>9402890
If source is H, H is crazy. This is common knowledge. Idk about any other issue.
>>
Is it worth trying to start a local community? I know there are several lolitas in my city and doing a search, I couldn't find any establish lolita communities in my entire state.
What do they usually even do?
>>
>>9402987
Usually there is one or two statewide comms. Congratulations, you are the ita comm in your town.
>>
>>9403874
Usually comms are for making meetups and finding lolitas nearby. If you want to meet lolitas near you and don't mind managing a community. Keep in mind that you would probably have to host the first couple of meets, be prepared for itas because you can't kick them out. Be prepared to screen for creeps.


You should prepare to commit to it for a little while since you can't just make a comm and leave if you discover it's all itas.
>>
>>9400218
It's such a shame, I had the money but caught the post too late and am on the waitlist.
>>
>>9403961
Unless you live in Texas or California, where there's a comm for every major city, XP
>>
>>9399834
HLS scheduled their easter meet first so she only had herself/hlc to blame for the controversy.

What I want to know is who's sick she sucked to get oni
>>
How often do you and/or the people in your comm rewear coordinates and main pieces to meetups? I have a mid size wardrobe and my comm is very active so I'm approaching, and wanting to, rewear some of my favorite coords. I usually have no problem re-wearing them when on my own or with friends, but I'm a tad embarrassed doing so with my comm.
>>
>>9406847
As often as they want. No one gives a shit as long as you look nice. They are clothes. Meant to be reworn.
>>
>>9406853
I totally get that, and like i said, i re-wear them often on my own. I'm just wondering specifically about how often others do it specifically for meet ups.
>>
>>9406854
I think you're expecting people to notice/care more than they realistically would. No one is going to take a mental inventory of your previous coords and judge you for it. If they do, they're the weird one and not you.
>>
>>9406854
I've seen a few people in comms I've been in rewear coords, and at least three or four non-itas who wore the same one or two dresses to multiple meets in a row (usually OTT sweet girls on a tight budget who have a couple of AP coords and nothing else).

There's one dress in particular that I've worn to five different meets with three different comms in really similar coords, I just didn't post pictures online after the first time. Most people didn't even notice. Usually people remember the dress and not the coord, so even if you make an effort to switch the coord up the second time, all they'll remember is that you're wearing the same print.
>>
>>9407001
Thanks, this is the kind of answer I was looking for! Would you say people usually care or mention it?

Whose dick did she suck? Kek Here's hoping she was actually being nice and not talking shit about or screwing them over.
>They are not welcomed for J-Fest
>They are not welcomed at Comicpalooza

HLC is literally ruining everything. We may not have John or AM involved but this comm is already being ruined by the mods.

Same fucking shit. Different person. That's literally what this is.
>>
>>9407527
*Staff members

>>9406847
I re-wear dresses at least twice a year but try to mix up the coord itself so it's not 100% the same. My comm just announced a meetup with a theme that I have one specific coord for, but I wore that coord to the last meetup already. I'm going to see if I can play around with hairstyle, head accessory and footwear so I won't be wearing the exact same coord twice in a row. Most people probably won't notice, but I will.

There are a few girls in my community who only have like two dresses that they wear over and over again and I personally don't care. The only one who bothers me is the brolita who has one ugly Bodyline coord that he never deviates from, even a little buit. It gives me the impression he sees lolita as more of a tea party costume than as a fashion.
>>
>>9406847
I've never repeated a coord entirely but it's because I've only been in the fashion about a year and change and have only been just honing in on a style I really like. I'd have no qualms about repeating a coord though, and certainly rewear main pieces as often as I want to. Friends in my comm have repeated coords, and no one cares. One of my regrets about when I first started is that I was so afraid of repeating a coord that I wore some halfassed, bad ones for the sake of wearing something new.
>>
>>9407006
No, as long as you don't wear the same dress more than 2 times in a row, most people won't even realize it, much less mention it.
Personally, I would find it a bit weird if someone wore the exact same coord more than twice and would assume that they don't care enough about lolita to switch it up a bit. But I would never mention it or give them a hard time, because most likely money is an issue in this case, and I wouldn't want to embarrass them by pointing this out.
Especially when it comes to new lolitas, people tend to just ignore re-worn dresses. Nobody expects that you buy a new dress for every single meetup. With people who have been in the fashion for a few years, it might be a bit weird if you only own and wear 3 dresses, but, as I said, since monetary issues are likely to be the reason, people don't mention it either.
>>
>>9407820
Really? I'm in the fashion for many years now and wear it quite regular and honestly I don't bother or I'm too lazy to change my coord, so I actually re-wear the exact same outfits. When I was a newbie I always tried to change my outfits a little bit even when my wardrobe was small, but now I guess I'm not so much interested in "creating" outfits anymore, I just want to wear them and look pretty.

And at the end of the day it's just clothes, maybe you are also very fashionable outside of Lolita fashion, but I don't really have time or energy to put effort into my everyday normie wardrobe, so like many other people I wear the same outfits as well, so for me it's no big deal if someone does it in Lolita fashion as well.
>>
>>9400506
Funny. And girls are so catty so you couldnt just go inside.
>>
>>9401953
>>9402338

This was some pretty defensive shit for not being K lmao. Everyone who says K isn't petty af' is full of themselves. She started 75% of the drama in HLC because she was mad she didn't get into the AM fashion show.

The only people who should be mod for HLS is O (because she is mature and has been in the fashion a long time) and M & C because they actually host fucking events and GO TO THEM.
>>
>>9399412
Can I vent a bit? I know that I sound like some elitist bitch, but I really wish that my local comm were a bit more well-dressed. They are all sweet and lovely girls, but most of them straddle the range between ita and nitpick, despite having been in the fashion for years. We're talking no makeup, simple t-shirts under dresses, sneakers as footwear & stuff like that.

I won't claim that I'm an expert myself, but I just wish that I was surrounded by well-dressed people, who could inspire me to improve my coord skills.

But yeah, I live in a tiny European country with few active lolitas, so this will most likely never happen unless I pull myself together and go somewhere abroad as an exhange student...
>>
>>9410210
I saw the tiny European country and got somewhat excited as I'm a lone lolita and pretty new here but I don't think anyone in this country wears sneakers. Steampunk crap, yes. T-shirts and sneakers, no.
>>
>>9407523
This is stupid to me b/c HLC and HLS are two separate comms. Why does it matter who is having what meet on what day if that isn't your comm?
>>
>>9410088
I couldn't go inside because the building was closed. It was just a random building with "aesthetic" exterior, not the place where we were supposed to have the meetup. It was so awkward.
>>
>>9410304
There are a lot of members who are in both. Conflicting dates can hurt both comms.
>>
>>9410190

Correction: HLS didn't even host that meet. It was HLC with mostly HLS members.

JUST MAKE IT ONE COMM AGAIN. THIS IS THE DUMBEST SHIT EVER.
>>
>>9410373
You must be fucking new.

>HLC meet and greet had mostly HLC members
>HLS is 21+ and up so they can do adult meets
>HLC+AM drama happens
>HLS decides to cater all lolitas and those who boycott AM/HLC or don't want to be part of HLC's drama
>>
>>9410373
Not sure why you're so angry anon. Relax.
>>
>>9407523
lol holy shit, not in that comm but i got the feeling she was a crazy bitch based off of my short interactions with her on amino
