I don't understand why they were added if nobody likes them, I've tried making a new group chat before excluding them, but theres always one of two people (Who we all really like) that say "oh don't forget about ____!" and adds them without anybody saying anything

It's just an online chat group. Let the offender know they're being rude and awkward before it goes too far. Thing is, if you let it to continue but then get angry later they could spin it and try to play victim because you technically never told them about the issue.
Just let that person know, be like "We're not trying to attack you," or "That thing you said is pretty crude and makes us feel awkward."

I'm glad I'm not the only one who struggles with this specific symptom of depression. It really does make you feel like a failure of a human being, but that just worsens the problem... on top of all the other things I find disgusting about myself, I also have a physical component to enhance the loathing and make sure that downward spiral is both steep and at least partially permanent.

If you have reliable income, why do you not have savings already, anyway?
If you don't have reliable income, why would you buy something non-essential like style wear?

Either way the solution is identical: Accept the loss on this one and take it as a lesson to manage your money better and/or work harder and/or get a new job.
>>
>>9638655
I have savings, but I'm not about to drop 1000+ on three dresses. I have enough put aside for lolita that would cover one dress, because no one really expects three dresses to show up at once. Quit being condescending and assuming, you're making an ass of yourself.

My boyfriend understands but none of them will listen and it's so stressful. I've pretty much given up but they're all still my friends so it's difficult to watch her treat them like shit. I guess it's their mistake though, not mine.

Being overly flirty so she can: win games (she's sort of a psycho about board games), steal our booze at parties, get them to do stuff for her, fight with each other, etc. She has a boyfriend already, but they're too blinded by the possibility of sex to listen when I point out the shit parts ofher personality.

>give them dating advice
don't do this please
girls give terrible dating advice to guys because they really only see half the picture in dating.
dating sucks for guys. It really sucks. There are multiple billion dollar industries built up around the fact that dating sucks so much for guys. Women on the other hand, usually just put on makeup, heels, and a push-up bra and stand around in a bar/club waiting for a guy they can tolerate to hit on them. Since the experiences are usually worlds apart, any advice that women give men for dating is probably gonna be bad.
Think back to all the moms telling their sons about how girls just want a nice boy who respects them and isn't a jerk. Now, think about how much those guys are seen as pussies, and how meatheads who ooze testosterone have more women hanging off them. It's just that they have a hard time putting into word what they really want. I guess there's also the fact that teenage girls are dumb sometimes and mistake being an insufferable cunt and looking for a fight all the time for confidence in a guy.

Drawing used to be my favorite thing, and now it just makes me feel like shit. Five years out of art school, and I know I'll never be the artist I want to be. I don't deserve to live.

Cosplay is the only creative thing that doesn't make me hate myself.

>>
>>9639372
You might not be able to make a living out of art but that doesn't mean you don't deserve to live, or that you're not an artist. I know this feel, I've been drawing my whole life and I've been stuck in an artless rut for a few years now; it sucks but you gotta pick yourself back up, you know? Do you still feel like shit when you just doodle for fun? How about you start with that?
>>
>>9639403
If drawing stresses you out, maybe take a break from it for a bit? Doodle when you want to. If you don't have a job, this could be a good time to learn a new skill or even go back to school if you can.

Hang in there. <3
>>
>>9639372
Draw furfag commissions and make bank. That's what I do anyway.
>>
>>9639372
I loved drawing and my mum tried to tell me I should go to art school. I had enough sense back then to say "I love art, which means I DONT want to make it my job." do what you love is an outdated meme. Move away from creative pursuits for a job and find something else that doesnt make you want to kill yourself. In a year or two you'll probably find your passion for art will come back.
>>
>>9639421
I'm currently studying something practical but I have absolutely no interest in it, but I am pretty good at art, considering doing this.
>>
>>9639429
Very good side gig. More so if you're actually a decent artist, not that they care too much. Just fetish shit in general.

>>
>>9639458
How much did you get for it? I'd be willing to draw whatever as long as I'm paid enough.

Also, how did you market yourself? I've got a semi decent following on tumblr and Twitter (around 2000 followers on each) by shitposting and churning out the occasional fanart but don't know how to appeal to furries or more commissioners. Do I just have to keep drawing them? Should I go on different sites?
>>
>>9639474
$1950. But I offered to fix it if he didn't like it, plus possible issues shipping I handled entirely.
I made a separate account/identity entirely and started from ground 0, as I wanted no connection to real life or any other accounts. I highly suggest you do the same.
Then you can draw some tame furry stuff, maybe slightly lewd. Release drawings regularly, visit furry sites, post your stuff. You attract furries with furshit.

Once you have a good little following, open for commissions. Set ground rules if you have them or expect everything under the sun, which means a lot more money if you can stomach it AND draw it well. Furry, scat, inflation, guro, loli, shota, cbt, etc. It does take a lot of time, research, and practice. Your moral compass has to be pretty low too.

>>
>>9639481
Thanks anon, this is all great help, hope you get lots of commissions soon. I'll definitely change my identity.
Did you change your art style at all? How about typing style when making posts/interacting with customers? Do you ever worry about getting caught? My main worry is that somebody will recognize my art style and approach me. Also, how did you start out with pricing?
>>
>>9639417
Thank you. I just kind of hate myself for wasting my life on this.
>>
I'm so busy now. I'm wearing since I'm pretty much working 7 days a week. I don't have any time to wear lolita but I keep buying it. On one hand I feel like I'm losing interest and on the other I just want to be like fuck it and wear it for casual Fridays or whatever.
>>
>>9639493
I had a pretty low internet foot print to begin with. My style changed a lot over time and I had never drawn anything like this before. My forte was landscapes and flowers, even doodles.

I don't worry too much about being recognized. Your commissions aren't likely to come up on the internet you know? They keep it to themselves, so your public art doesn't need to be super degenerate. Weird and off-putting maybe, but enough that you can explain yourself.
If you're worried change your style a bit while practicing. I use the same business like tone I use in work emails with my customers, you don't need to go THAT far to hide yourself.

Pricing depends how good you are, your turn around time, and the commission itself. Can't really help you too much there as I don't know what your drawings are like. I started out fairly low to gauge how many bites I'd get, and I adjust prices based on how much I want to do the request, my availability, their specifications, if they're a repeat buyer, if I fucking like them or not, etc. Price is definitely the most difficult part.

Anon I recently came to the same conclusion.

I looked at my time on my phone using an app and I was spending 7 HOURS a day on mobile games alone. I had dozens of games installed that I would rotate through and I dumped a hundred dollars on love Nikki and more on other games like Yugioh. I recognized the issue but I didn't want to uninstall because of the sunk cost fallacy. A dream (mid tier) dress came up for auction and I didnt have the liquid funds for it. I deleted all the games at once except for three: pokemon Go because exercise and I've never spent on it, Habitica because it's a healthy habit app and not really a game, and Run Zombies because it's also exercise.

Go cold turkey anon. They've got you hooked to a dopamine feed. You should cut them all out ideally. It will never work for addictive or compulsive types. I felt a panic attack coming on if I didn't get enough diamonds to complete a set.

Besides that for 200 dollars you could commission amateur artists to draw your favorite Nikki outfits many times over, without worrying about the game. I'm not condemning buying intangible game items, but the probable enjoyment ratio is much better spent elsewhere 99% of the time.
>>
>>9639800
I'm stuck on 8s in iidx but at least I'm having fun with doubles.

>>9639869

Well seeing as how I literally can't spend money on Uta Macross because JPN iTunes won't take overseas cards and you have to buy third party JPY gift cards and redeem them to be able to buy things in-game... I'm in the clear.

It's not an "oh god I spend too much time/money playing this game" problem. It's a "the more I play with these characters that I love the more I want to cosplay them" problem.

Also. Yanno. My thumbs dislocate when I play too fast.

Before we started dating my boyfriend had been planning on taking his life for a while. He says I've given him a reason to live but I'm worried all the time.

I never part my real hair or cosplayed a character that had side-swept bangs before, so this was something I didn't even think of until it was too late, especially because selfies are also "flipped"

Be careful just juicing. It's possible to lose weight without it, unless you're doing it as a temporary "get my hunger under control" thing, which I can understand.

Browsing lolita threads for the past few months has subconsciously affected my clothing standards.

I moved out of my apartment last week. During moving, I trashed 1/3 of my wardrobe due to mold (why the hell do my apartments' architects keep putting clothing closets in the BATHROOMS??? OF COURSE MOLD WILL GROW). Donated another 1/3 of my wardrobe because they're too big for me now. Now my already measly wardrobe is down to 1/3 of its original size. I *might* have 20 items in total, excluding lingerie. Tee shirts, tank tops, pants, and a single dress.

I went into some stores today to rebuild my wardrobe only to find extremely poor quality fast fashion stuff that'll last me 10 wears at most before the fabric pills like crazy and the print fades to a shadow of its former self. Poor construction, loose threads, raschel lace, and thin fabric. Worst yet, these shirts are priced at $20+. I would pay maybe $8 for these tops. Before discovering lolita, I thought $20 was a perfectly fine price.

Lately, it happens even with brands: I browse LM and cringe at the price for the quality I see gulls receive. I'm watching handmade lolita YT videos to build up on secondhand knowledge before breaking out my sewing machine to just DIY a dress in order to avoid it all. At least if it turns out crappy, I'll have enough knowledge of sewing to recycle the usable fabric for another item.

OT but, gulls, where do you buy your quality non-lolita clothing? What do you pay for at most for items? i.e. $20 for a tee shirt, $60 for a normie dress, etc.
>>
>>9642970
>pretty sure a professor did an experiment and lost 10-15 pounds eating only oreos because he just had small portions

although I don't disbelieve that that happened, the experience of one person is hardly proof that it would work for everyone, which some thin people seem to think. sometimes people have really slow metabolisms, or vitamin deficiencies, or food allergies that would make them gain weight doing the same experiement

If anything, I would take that as an example of "losing weight doesn't always equal getting healthier"

Don't bring this up. The only thing that matters when losing weight is CICO. You can boost your metabolism by eating a certain way but the laws of physics are the laws of physics. If someone eats 1000 in garbage every day they're going to lose weight faster than someone eating 1800 in fruits and veg
>>
>>9642988
I buy a lot of my normal clothes in thrift stores because not only is it cheaper but I am better able to assess the quality (items have already been washed and worn enough that the truly crap fast fashion you mention will be looking tired).

I also buy from higher end high street stores and even alt fashion brands but only in the sales, and hunt through the racks at TJ Maxx too.

I also keep searching ebay for pieces/eras of brands I really like e.g. older All Saints stuff before everything was shapeless and they did great draping.

I know your feel, anon. What I've found to be a great solution is buying secondhand clothing. I can be a real cheapass with more normie clothes because I want to spend most of my money on lolita and secondhand clothing is incredibly cheap but still high quality most of the time.
Check if your country has an active secondhand online marketplace and visit thrift shops every once in a while! You might find gems.

It's not about how pretty gulls are, it's about how seriously to take this board. This board takes itself way more seriously than other boards, where everyone automatically assumes people are trolling and shitposting. It's funny to see gulls trying say how plain and ugly a model is, or about how that COF poster is sooooo shooped, you know it's 99% bitter jealousy.

tldr: People who actually look the way do don't need to go on about it on anon. They get enough attention irl or online to know they are. Most bitching about appearance is from "ugly/old" gulls. Almost everyone can pass cause for 15-20 until their late twenties if they take care of themselves. Look at "naturally cute" and that one black girl in cosplay suggestion threads that put "I know I look prepubescent lol" on her sheet every time she posted.

Honestly I'm 99% sure all the gulls bitching about ugly models are the exact same humblebraggers. I've seen lots of genuinely underage looking women and surprisingly they never actually mention it cause it's normal to them. Same with actually being cute/pretty or busty. Every time I've seen a "busty" anon hype it up so much before posting post they could easily drop 15-30 pounds from their arms/waist and only hit the high/mid end of healthy. You can't bitch about how terrible your life is if you won't even try to fix it. Generally the really obese people are the only ones that bitch irl when other people remind them not fitting is a two way street too.

I get mistaken as younger than 14yo sister (5 year diff before underageb8) and get the "are your parents home" almost every package. But I know for a fact I'm not anywhere near young enough for a loli at all. At most I'm passable for 15-20 but literally almost every person in this age range is without heavy make up. It's only uniform enough to guess accurately when you hit mid to late 30s at earliest. It's about as accurate as saying "I didn't get carded! The guy still thinks I'm 15!" when it's standard policy in the US to card anyone without gray hair and wrinkles. My 49yo mom occasionally gets carded for fucks sake. And no not a "forever kawaii asian" either.

I am the same anon, family wise. I ended up getting a retail job just to get by but they still complain.

>Mum hinting she wants a grandchild.
>Ignores the fact she has a step grand daughter.
>"Oh but anon she is older and not from our side"
>Dad constantly takes the piss out of my hobbies, to the point I stopped doing some of them.
>Still buy the odd Lolita item to cheer me up and my husband likes them.
>Given up talking to them about anything I love to the point I'm almost silent in every conversation.
>"Anon why don't you talk to us more often?"

My husband hates my dad more than anything cause of all his unwanted comments on things I like. He is ok with mum but we both agreed we wouldn't let our daughter see them to often in case they start doing it to her too.

Good feels

Just bought my first petti !! It's a gorgeous cream chiffon piece for Aud 70, from an Australian brand called Kitten D'Amour

They also have really lovely JSK's, but I didn't have the money with me and they only have a limited amount of each item in existence (bar the pettis)

Btw, what's the consensus on western JSK's in lolita? Because they're really very lovely and I'm tempted to buy one with my first job money-

I don't think there's any chance of it clearing up by Saturday no matter how long I warm compress it. I know its always a chance but I thought that with the nice place and the surgical steel jewelry it would be alright. My earlobes haven't given me trouble for years since i switched over (they used to chronically become irritated if i had earrings in, found out i cant do gold or silver jewelry)

Might go back to the place i got it done to see if they have any tips for clearing it up quickly but i think I'm fucked for this week.

Thanks anon. I picked up some antibacterial cream (not ointment, supposedly this stuff is okay to use since it absorbs into the skin) and I have a thing of saline wash that they gave me. I'm really trying to figure out what went wrong here, I did everything exactly as they said and it's not like it's my first one. I guess sometimes it just goes wrong anyway. I may have rolled on it while I was sleeping, maybe I should wash my pillows and cases again to be safe.

>>9643138
hate to break it to you anon but although kitten d'armour is nice their petticoats and dresses are definitely NOT lolita. More of a rockabilly vibe - which isn't bad, in fact I have several kitten pieces myself, but not lolita. There isn't enough poof even for an A-line in their petticoats and you'll need to layer it up. If you're going for something casual like wearing an ETC jsk you may find you'll need more. It will look lovely under their dressess though so if you like the bouquet dress I suggest buying it - I'm debating grabbing it myself and it's work appropriate.
>>
>>9643138
That looks cute anon, I'd go for it. I don't know about the consensus, but I often use dresses like that for more everyday looks. As with brand lolita dresses you need to style it accordingly to look good.
For example this particular jsk would, in my opinion, not look very good with a bulky cotton more oldschool-styled blouse. You might want to look into more flowy fabrics.

Same. I’m going to be 24 in a couple of months, moving towns to pursue a postgrad. Everyone congratulates me on passing university entrance exams straight from high school.

A little feels:
>moving towns
>will finally be able to choose my own decoration
>mom is having empty nest issues
>buys me everything
>nothing is cute
>my new apartment is 100% normie now
I can’t bring myself to reject anything because I’ll be able to use my savings for other stuff (like going to Japan) and to top it off I got all my appliances and furniture new instead of used.
In the end I’m really happy, but I figure I’ll never have my dream lifestyler house.

None of those dresses look like they'd suit Lolita, except maybe the midsummer night's one but for that price you could probably find an actual jetj painting dress on closetchild or something.
I can't really help you with petticoats as I sew my own but as a fellow ausfag I think a lot of princess highway/Dangerfield can work if you know what's what (particularly blouses & cardigans), plus we also have Mulberry chronicles (Aussie indie brand) who put out some pretty cute stuff but I haven't payed much attention to them lately.

Cgl has never used japanese for conversation and IF it was ever used, it's to write out the names of brands or prints/help others with keywords to use for searching japanese sites.

I'm getting really sick of the infiltration of white sluts in cosplay. Most of these dumb bitches are just uggos who can't into normal society for attention and has to ruin a once innocent outlet for nerdy animoo lovers. And 9/10 slutty cosplays with minimum effort but max skin exposure are guaranteed white girls. It's like the only thing they care about is the attention, I bet none of them even know what anime or game they cosplay from but just found some slutty outfit they took a liking to and decided to copy it.

Wait, so average uggos are allowed to wear lolita? I won't be burned at the stake for being caught out of the house with my non-kawaii face?

Are you me/do you live in my apartment block? Packages were delivered earlier and I was stupidly listening to true crime shows, when suddenly around 8.30 the doorbell rings and someone bangs on the window.

As someone who lives in a really shit neighborhood always always answer the door. Definitely do NOT open it, but a lot of the time they only ring to check if it's safe to break in. Just answer through the door and if you feel safe open with the chain and don't have your body in the opening. If you're a convincing liar say your bf/dad is sleeping and talk in hushed tones. Seeing their face at any time is also a huge crime deterrent as well.

>Add her on FB, send her some more ideas for the personal shoot

>Every message I send asking her about poses or inspiration she just replies with minimum effort 2 or 3 word replies

>I set a time and date, still just get an "Okay great!" and that it's it, no discussion about location or time of day

>Finish and go home to process the photos
>Thank her for her time and give her a link to all the photos
>She just replies with "thanks!" and I never hear from her ever again
Probably the most demoralizing experience I've ever had in cosplay related stuff. I just got a constant feeling that she didn't think I was worth her time which was weird since she was always willing to do the shoot and on a surface level looked happy with the result. In the messages over FB I obviously wasn't expecting a full paragraph in response but it would be nice if she actually responded at all sometimes. She only really talked to me when she absolutely had to.

Not even close. The shoot was always planned to be of Tracer in her OG outfit, just shooting her guns in random directions like the game cover. She had a consistent air of "I don't care" about her
>>
>>9644088
are you male? she was probably trying really hard to make sure you wouldn't think she was "leading you on." a lot of nerdy guys (and guys in general imo) seem to think that simply being nice/giving them the time of day is showing interest, and then when it gets to a point when you have to tell them you're not interested, they get all "YOU LEAD ME ON REEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE." Sounds like she wanted to do the shoot but didn't want to be friends or give you any reason to think she was interested in you
>>
>>9644020
you're probably ugly and autistic looking. people are usually cunts to people they think are below them.
>>
>>9644106
Probably this. I've had guys assume I wanted to date them solely because I agreed to pose for a picture with them when they asked. Sometimes when I'm having a friendly conversation with a guy and I worry that he's getting the wrong idea I casually mention that I'm in a relationship (e.g. "oh yeah, my boyfriend loves that movie but I've never seen it") and at least half the time they either drop out of the conversation immediately or get all offended.
>why would you mention your boyfriend don't flatter yourself I wasn't hitting on you you're not even pretty anyway rrreeeeeeeee
>okay, then what are they so pissy about?
It's better than ~leading them on~ and risking them getting truly invested, though, because that's when they get really nasty.

Many men are like this in general but a cons it's 10x worse, especially if I'm in cosplay. Probably something about socially awkward nerds and the assumption that any woman is costume is doing it to please them, or whatever. In my experience it's better to be safe than sorry.

Good job for proving her point.

In my experience the guys who stick around but constantly insult your bf or literally any other male you get within 10ft of are the worst. Then they bitch about how no one gives them a chance and throw a huge fit like >>9644129 said when you tell them to chill. The whole time playing dumb and acting like they had zero interest.

I'm really upset with your parents.
As a 26 year old I can't imagine giving alcohol to a high school student, let alone taking their virginity. he could have done all that romantic pseudo-brotherly/fatherly stuff without making it a sexual relationship. there's always time to consider graduating the relationship when you're much older, if there's still a connection.

if you don't want to have a hard time I suggest getting therapy to help you deal with the wounds from your family situation. you're vulnerable and will be targeted by older or generally wolfish people until you begin healing and wising up. It's not your fault but you need to get ahead of the game and not leave yourself open to predators. don't isolate yourself. be your age and find some kindred souls at your new school. good luck babbynon.
