I greatly fear for the future of cosplay. There were some normies in an AskReddit thread saying how cosplay nowadays is all sexy patreon girls trying to get famous. While there are definitely more of those now than there used to be, we all know that the majority of cosplayers are still just hobbyists having fun. It's starting to become clear that the general public doesn't see that though, they only see the JNigs of the world. Such a sad misrepresentation of what this hobby really is.
>>
I shared that I was moving in some thread or two ago, looks like this week I'll hear back from maybe one or two places and it's looking positive finally. I have cosplay and AA stuff to pack and such, and I better do something about my fabric stash if it's something I'm not using.

Are you currently getting any help for that anon? I struggled with depression and anxiety for so many years before just recently getting professional help late last year.

I stupidly stopped taking my meds because I felt I could face my depression head on without them. I’m taking them again so hopefully I’ll feel better within a week or two. And looking at my lolita wardrobe sort of helps. I just don’t want to be such a downer at a con lol

Oh god, I went off my meds once (involuntarily, follow up appointment was cancelled and I ran out) and I had the worst week of my life.

It's so stupid that I get flustered trying to coord things, it's why my wardrobe right now is mostly black and most things match. I've always loved sweet lolita though, I want to wear pastel blues and lavenders and bright reds, but the amount of stuff I'd need to buy new shoes, new accessories, new bag, new legwear, to go with a sweet main piece and I'm afraid of going through all that and ending up not liking how I look.

Dress one step nicer than what you would normally wear to the job. If you're interviewing for starbucks or a factory, a suit is probably unnecessary, business casual would be fine. If it's an office and they already dress business casual, then do business formal. etc.

One of the points of the interview is to see how well you fit in with the company. If you show up in business formal to a very casual workplace, they might think you're not going to be a good fit with the laid back atmosphere. Or maybe they will be impressed with how hard you're trying, it's hard to say, depends on who's hiring. But the safest best is to do what I said above.

If you're not sure what different degrees of business wear look like, google it.

I get that parenting takes a lot of time and energy, but it sucks having people disappear from my life. I hope that when she does eventually have kids, we can still find the time to hang out.
>>
>>9882716
Alot of people think this way but its not true. You just need to have kids too. Then you get to do things together with the kids and they become friends too.
>>
>>9882718
Not sure if troll, but this is the one reply you'll get. I don't want children. I know myself well enough to know that parenting isn't for me. I have a variety of reasons for my decision, and I'll happily explain in detail if someone is genuinely interested in my thought process, but Internet randoms tend to go about demanding justifications, and I'm not about to indulge your thinking that I've made a "wrong" choice. I will say this, however. Children are human beings with free will and bodily autonomy. They deserve parents who are enthusiastic and involved in their upbringing. They are not tools to maintain a social life and they are not clay to be molded into a mini-me. People who think otherwise are doing their children a disservice.

How to end lolita addiction? I used to draw, play games and watch anime but now all I do is think about lolita.

Start off with a sweet main piece in black so it's easier to match with what you have now; buy a few colorful accessories to match it and gradually introduce new pieces to your wardrobe i.e. shoes, purse, etc. until you have enough to buy a main piece in an entirely new color.
It'll take time but you can do it!

>tfw getting a little more attention on insta lately and the small handful of normie irl friends following me flat out never like any of my posts

Not liking every post is one thing, but it's just kind of weird and conspicuous when I see that they're active every day and yet have never liked a single one of my coords, ever. For the record, when these people ask for my account, I warn them that it's alt shit and tell them they don't need to follow me, but then they give me the "omg but it's so cool! I love it!" and follow me anyway. Sorry, I know it's silly to get worked up over this but I just need to vent. It sucks knowing that people I thought were good friends don't support me the way I thought they did. I just want a space I can dedicate to my interests, and having them be part of it makes me feel uncomfortable now.

Related happy feel: this situation is partially because my bf, bless his heart, is so proud of me that he can't stop giving my IG out to everyone.
>>
>>9882932
Your boyfriend sounds adorable. And hey, if they don't react to any of your posts after specifically asking for your social media, it's on them. I can see why it's irritating though.
Having said that, you should count your blessings: An acquaintance of mine asked to add me on sm, and afterwards proceeded to like all my ootds and commented on several of them like "You should wear higher heels with this" and "this is so hot". Blocked him immediately and now feel awkward interacting with him irl.

Don't go blindly meeting someone who's ghosting you. If you booked tickets and can't cancel now, at least make a backup plan for something to do/someplace to stay in your destination, in case you can't meet your s/o for any reason.

>>9883095
I arranged the trip months ago when they weren't ghosting me and thought they could be trusted, that's the problem. I can't really afford to stay anywhere at my destination that isn't some shitty hostel for the amount of time I'm staying for so I'm probably just going to not go.

I feel this way about Lolita, anon. Let's cry.

I browse /cgl/ every day. I am a gull, but I would not call myself a lolita if I don't wear my clothes or attend any functions whatsoever. I moved to a town with virtually no nerd presence besides card games, so I've latched onto that. However I don't even feel like I fit in there, I think people just see me as "the chick." I've come to realize I think I just want a hobby to spend money and time on. I don't know why spending brings me comfort, I think something to do with no matter how shitty I am or how ugly I think I am or whatever eating problems or anything I might have, money can always buy me the prettiest dress. The most meta deck. I don't know.

Hi /cgl/ i want to play game. You see my gf left me recently because she 'couldn't manage her feels' which is a code word for 'I like to cheat you with another girl (she' s bi) and can't foresee that my actions have emotional impact on other people beside me', i was always there for her, even in her three suicide attempts that left me emotional tired as fuck (it was before the cheating) and here's the matter: she's a Lolita, an ultra fanatic Lolita to the point that her dresses are like part of her soul or something, and when she left, she leave all his lolita wardrobe in my house. And well, I'm in a really anger state of mind, why i should always be the rational, the emotional stable guy of the couple, i didn't even fight her for fear she would made another suicide attempt. But now she's gone and I'm with a lot of emotional anger it came to my mind, what if i burn all her lolita clothes? Turn them to ashes, satisfy my anger. But that wouldn't be the action of a good man doesn't it? And i want to be a good man because self judgement is what kill us inside, is what corrupt our memories and our soul, so i think, I'm a man who likes to think, i think about /cgl/ and how she spend hours and hours of her life showing me the lolita community, smiling at those precious dresses, skirts, cardigans, classic, sweet, Gothic every small detail she could spend hours and hours talking about it with a smile on her face. So i decide /cgl/ would have a chance to save the wardrobe of my ex lolita, if you can convince me why is so important that i do not burn them all to hell to satisfy my anger of a broken heart
>>

I also appreciate the thought of having another gull take in the good pieces. Then they will essentially steal all the joy which the gf had felt.

This might be a little off topic and vafue, but I don't know who else to vent to.

I have an ED, but have been in that limbo state of recovery-but-not for about 5 years. I had to go to the hospital and an inpatient clinic at one point, but for the last 5 years I've been basically eating the same things every day, so my weight has been stable.

I got out on to a new medication recently and its completely wiped out my appetite. I've been doing my best to eat what I'm supposed to, and I've mostly succeeded, but I did lose a bit of weight. I think part of that was that the previous antidepressants were slowing my metabolism artificially, because I really have been trying to eat the same. Anyway, I'm at about a BMI of 18, which is a little underweight, but I don't think its concerning...

However, I have what I believe to be unrelated health problems. I'm extremely sensitive to external factors like the temperature temperature and the sun, I'm fatigued all the time, poor circulation, sick most of the time, pain...I want to get checked out because a lot of these problems interfere with my quality of life, but doctors dismiss my problems saying it's due to depression or anxiety. I live at home, and when I try to talk to my parents, they dismiss me, saying it's because of my eating disorder.

I guess my feel is that I'm tired of being dismissed and being seen as JUST being depressed. Or being seen as an only an eating disorder. I feel like my doctors and parents only see my diagnoses and when I try to bring up other concerns, I'm only seen as the anorexia.

It annoys me especially since I've since stopped losing after the initial few pounds, and my antidepressants have actually helped with some of my food anxieties. Also, I desperately don't want to gain weight. I'm actually feeling the most at peace with my weight than I can ever remember, even if I still wish I could lose fat
>>
>>9883641
It is because of your ED. You can't recover from a ED just by eating. You also have to go through a lot of therapy (spoiler, your mother was a cunt toward when you where a baby) no matter how much you eat if the feeling of not wanting to gain weight is still there you will continue to feel tired.

Gulls I know this is more of a feels thread than a help thread but I'm having a rough time. I suffer from bipolar, ADHD and borderline personality disorder. I'm a lolita, albeit not the best at it, and my cleanliness factor outside of it can be really lack luster. It's not that I'm gross I'm just cluttered, I forget to put stuff away. When I go to do anything I sit and think about doing it, but get overwhelming bouts of anxiety that cause me to not want to do anything. I pretty much shut down. I want to die looking at my clutter, and I try very hard when I'm able to bring myself to do stuff to clean and take care of stuff but it keeps getting worse and worse. I'm in therapy, on 4 different meds and I'm still having troubles. I need tips and help for keeping my mind focused on stuff I need to do.
>>
>>9883650
Different anon; I have the same issues. I developed IBS, gastrointestinal issues, a low body temp, and I now have an insane appetite flux. It's all because I was an ana-chan for years growing up. I think you should press onto your doctor that you need help with those things otherwise get a new doctor
>>
>>9883658
have you tried to-do lists/planner journals/calendars? i know it sounds obvious but i also have mental illnesses and writing shit down and checking it religiously was the only thing that helped me. i have a blackboard calendar and write out my schedule on it and then stick to do lists on a cork board above my bed and check it every morning and when i come home from work. i also keep a little journal so when im on public transit i can write what i need to do when i get home.
apart from that, find a day every month at least, better twice a month or more, to dedicate an entire day or afternoon just to cleaning. giving yourself a big boost can help you prevent yourself from falling back into the same patterns. sorry if youve already tried all of this, this is just how i ended up helping myself with the exact same problem
>>
>>9883641
> I'm extremely sensitive to external factors like the temperature temperature and the sun, I'm fatigued all the time, poor circulation, sick most of the time, pain

All symptoms of being underweight and undernourished. Take it from a former ana-chan. 18 BMI is very low for a normal female. Do some women naturally have this low of a BMI? Sure, but most do not.

I wish you the best of luck anon. I have absolute confidence that you'll heal your body and mind in time.

Having a set schedule really helped me too. Down to planning very little things like when I'm going to have a snack or something everyday. I have a set time everyday when I do a little bit of cleaning now.
Also if you don't already, start working out, even if you just go out for a walk or something. When I work out I feel more like getting off my ass to do all kinds of other stuff too (the endorphins I guess)

I kept a planner when I was a graphic designer for a bit, but I would forget to check it. I've set countless annoying timers, kept journals, made lists in places I normally go (fridge, bathroom wall next to my mirror, next to my bed, bedroom door) and it'll work for like a *month* before I start slipping back into it again. My partner is frustrated but understands it's a mental illness thing, and does some to help remind me of my responsibilities, but my roommate (her brother) keeps making it worse by passive aggressively doing things to get back at me for not remembering (he keeps eating food of mine, leaving LITERAL SHIT in the toilet like a fucking heathen, and acting like a total man baby about stuff when I'm about to get out of my head and actually do the things I was going to do) it's not helping me because the reason I don't do stuff is purely out of anxiety and sheer forgetfulness, but I don't want to be more of a burden and just want something, ANYTHING, to make me better.

On a side note: does this mean it's time for me to kms out of sheer uselessness

Meaningful work. Whether that be in a hobby or an actual job.

>>9883682
Many cases of ED have a strong correlating with mother (because they are the ones who feed the babies with her breast) that do not feed their babies well because 1) lack of milk in breast 2) lack of empathy toward the baby 3) others
Therefore the first impression of the world of those babies is that food represents a "danger" instead of a pleasure and sane act.

Different anon; I had an ed because I had a boy tell me I looked fat when I was 13 and my grandmother pushed diets on all the women in the family. My mom wasn't correlated at all there and most eating disorders come from body dysphoria issues not... how your mom fed you as a baby
>>
>>9883709
This >>9883710. It doesn't have to be a useful hobby, even. Meaningful isn't the same as useful, and only when I realised that, I managed to seriously enjoy myself doing my silly anime/game/art hobbies.
Earlier I had told myself it was useless and I was better off trying to find something ""better"" to do, and I would half-ass everything. I half-assed my hobbies because they were not to be taken seriously, and since I never felt I had proper fun I half-assed work and school. Then I stopped caring so much since I wasn't meeting anyone's expectations anyway, started drawing more and focused on improving my skills, and I started improving it felt my the rest of my life was improving too.

Is great that your mother wasn't the main source. But you have to understand that the process of a negligent mother is involve in many cases, not ALL cases like your (but think about your grandma, as a matriarch figure with a negative influence and may see what I'm talking about)
Body disphoria is also a common denominator, but last investigations tend to not seen it as the initial cause. And also you have to add a little percentage of genetics into every mental disease

I would appreciate something that can help my ADHD concentration desu, I think that's my biggest problem. My insurance doesn't cover adderall and it's the only "big pharma" ADHD med that actually works on me without giving me insane anxiety from overstimulation. I very much believe in natural meds too so it's not like I only take that stuff. I'll look into it thank u anon

The thing is, I've had these problems for as long as I can remember. I'm sick of being brushed off just becaus I have an eating disorder.

And even when I was a child and mostly unconcerned over my eating, the doctors had to watch my weight. Even after weight restoration after inpatient my bmi was 19, and the highest it had ever been.

Different anon here.
Our condition seems pretty similar. As a kid, I always had low weight and my doctor was concerned my parents were neglecting me. (They were) But I didn't have an ED and didn't care about my weight until I got landed in the hospital after passing out for a little too long when I was 17. They check my blood and are shocked, ask me if I have an ED, to which I said no. Then I got on a weight gaining diet and suddenly there it is, I start obsessing over my weight and haven't risen above BMI of 18 until I got real help. I'm constantly sick and fatigued which makes my depression worse.
BMI of 18 is unhealthy. It's concerning and not normal. No one is brushing you off because you have an ED, they're brushing you off because they're ignorant. If they cared then they'd intervene and help. Those symptoms are what happens when you're malnourished, it's just scientific fact. I know it's frustrating to hear.
I find that exagerrating or having a breakdown in front of a doctor convinces them to help more at least, in my experience. No one listened when I kept asking until I exagerated
>>
I’ve been working the same shitty retail job since I was 17 and this year I decided I was going to try and find a “real job”. I’ve been applying to a bunch of stuff for months with no responses until recently. I had a phone interview today and I think it went well, and they’d want to bring me in for $48k a year which I still can’t get my head around considering that I work part time and make minimum wage. But I’m so nervous and conflicted, I’m so comfortable at my job and I like most of my coworkers a lot, but I’m part time because of mental health reasons and I’m just afraid I won’t be good enough for something like this. I’m 26 and my family always makes snide remarks about me working part time and not a real job but they don’t know I’ve recently been taking antidepressants which have been helping me so much. I’m trying so hard to turn my life around but I’m just not used to good things happening to me, or even being good at anything.

>tfw the bar Kokusyoku Sumire ran in Golden Gai long closed before old enough to drink/travel to Japan

>tfw will never go to a tiny lolita bar to be serenaded while Sachi serves you her homemade cakes

Oh well. At least I've got to visit the area. There are a lot of tourists checking it (golden gai) out, but not really going inside, and I kinda like that Japanese/local patrons seem to get first dibs (or maybe they just know when to show up) because Tokyo is especially overrun with tourists that the city feels more like a movie set than an actual city.

>tfw Harajuku/Takeshita dori is thickly crowded and littered
>saw a fucking rat too
(Japan is otherwise generally clean)
>completely missed/overlooked what's left of certain shops and cafes because Western brands/businesses (like a gd gold's gym) have taken over

Pretty concerned on the state of things leading up to the Olympics. I knew from visiting here and from friends visiting/living there that gentrification is getting bad, but it's surreal seeing it for myself, and disappointing that I couldn't do things my young, babbylita self dreamed of doing because some places are gone or overrun by rude tourists that it's not worth the time anymore.

That being said, I'm surprised to manage to find spaces that still cater to that kawaii-centric aesthetic whose patrons mainly speak Japanese. I hope they'll continue to do well.

Been cosplaying for ages but never really got much recognition because I’m shy and generally cosplay obscure characters. Some people I know only recently started and get sk much love and ass pats because they cosplay Overwatch or present their tits on a platter.

I’m losing faith, gulls. I want to care less but I’m really booty bothered by this.
>>
>>9884250
Where and when do you post on social media? Do you use tags appropriately? Tumblr for example only counts the first 5 tags.
If you cosplay obscure things, pay attention to the tags the fandoms of said obscure things uses often so you can reach them, and try to post at a time of day when there's traffic.
I hope you get the appreciation and recognition you deserve, anon. It sucks being invisible in fandom spaces.

Ahhh! This gives me nostalgic feels I never had. I never got into v-kei, but I've always wanted to have experiences of going to rock shows with my Lolita friends, which is weird for me because I'd prefer to be careful with my brand and be comfortable (and safe) at concerts.

For the first time, I gave up on finishing a cosplay in time for a con. I was out of town for a long while leading up to the con and couldn't work on it. The stress of trying to finish was driving me crazy, and I knew it wouldn't look as perfect as I wanted it to be. Now that I've given myself more time to finish, I feel loads better. Sure, it's disappointing to not be able to wear it to the con, but I have tons of other costumes I can wear. More importantly, I wasn't having fun scrambling to get it together, and I already knew it would look sloppy by the end. It's just really nice to look forward to a con without massive anxiety and be able to focus on having fun with my friends.

I had to learn this lesson many times, I think I've finally internalized it. I'm giving myself many months to get things done now instead of trying to drop everything weeks before the con to bust out something I'll just be disappointed in.

I'm glad you're not stressed anymore!

Right now it feels like you are losing a friend because of all the changes and you want that old comfort back. It's going to take time but if the connection and friendship was honest it can come back. Give yourself time and space to reconcile your feelings. Take care Anon.

At this point you just have to hope she snaps out of it herself. But judging from your story that seems kind of unlikely. I know a few people who have gone through the "Im gay, I'm bi, I'm genderfluid, I'm trans, nah wait, I'm just normal" thing. Hopefully she doesn't do anything rash like try to go on HRT before she's completely sure. I'd say talk to her, but I honestly have no idea what I would do in your situation, sorry anon.
