i was wondering what was wrong with this at first bc the girl is p cute idm the glasses and ears but then i saw.......
chinese people have memes too, as shocking as that may seem
Use mine if you like. Don't know if you get anything from it though.
Also make sure to pay for extra HD photos of the item if you need to check what it looks like. The default ones they give you are pretty much just for checking that they ordered the right thing rather than if there any issues with the product.

>tfw all the accessories for my backup Halloween coord arrived but the main dress and wig haven't

I think I'm cursed when it comes to having something ready for Halloween. It always goes wrong and now I've got three dresses ordered and none of them are ready to ship.

With Halloween just around the corner, I'm seeing more OC so let's try not to post old itas and keep from tanking this thread with useless arguments about who's autistic and who isn't. Just post very bad shit it isn't that hard.
So, starting off, I don't even fucking have words for how many levels of disbelief I'm in about this picture and its existence.

Any convention stories?

Yes, they did !
Now that I think of it, there's not another convention in France with a guest line up that even comes close.
All the budget must go into it.
Anyone here has been to the second edition of Comic Con paris ? Was it worse than last year ?
Also, I have'nt come to Japan Expo for the first time in years this summer, is it still getting worse or has it hit a plateau ?
Has anybody gone to the Japan Expo Sud?
I've been at most editions.
It was decent at first, but became shittier and shittier every year. I live 20 minutes from the convention but did not even bother to show up this year, it has become that bad. Some friends of mine planned to be here for the three days but they quit after saturday due to being too bored.
Hey, do anybody heard of what happend at the wazabi con, apparently they where people fighting over for something, what was it ?

Also your costume is pretty decent but did you even bother splicing a wig to the back of the hat?
If you can find a nice fabric for it, you can just do it as a long rectangle with rolled edges so they don't fray. This is a pretty good blog covering rolled hems- http://blog.megannielsen.com/2013/05/3-ways-to-sew-a-rolled-hem/
What a small world
I saw this cosplayers picture and I really like the interpretation of abbachio hat, what do you think about it ?

Just read my first post. I don't like to be slapped, I don't want to hear about someones ex, I don't want someone to read me from the bible (that was really creepy), I also don't want to be with someone who sells their body to raise money
>A man wants to slap me and talk dirty to me in bed
The horror of it all. He was practically a rapist!
But I mean, shouldnt you first get to know the other person before you start dating them? I was friends with my former girlfriend for three months before we started dating, to make sure she was the person I wanted to spend my life with.
Just take it easy and don't rush things anon, you still have time.
I just don't like it.

Thank you. It's maybe just because I never learned anything about relationships outside of bed stuff. Like, I never went on a first date or so. I just imagine stuff to be really akward cuz I practically don't know what boys talk about.
Not liking something as innocuous as dirty talk in the bedroom isn't exactly grounds for dismissal or calling someone a shitty partner. If you don't like it, just don't do it. Definitely sounds like the problem is with you

what are these overalls called? theyre so cute and I'm seeing everyone wear them this theme.
Stupid question, but how do you open this menue? Like where you can rotate and adjust stuff?
So I keep getting stuck in a loop of "retry, confirm, retry, confirm, retry..." because of this. I'm afraid to reinstall because facebook is the devil's social media platform and I didn't bind my account to anything. Is this an error that's happened to anybody else?
Huh, now it's saying "Rule out mistakes" instead of file not found... is my dressup game haunted? wtf

Sorry for offtopic, I guess. Have a pic of my trainer in the meantime. This was my second outfit because nobody cared for my first one, a girly fairy-type trainer that admittedly didn't look very trainer-like at all...
It happened to me too but it seems to be working now
Maybe just some server issues?

It's Halloween season. Is your Comm doing a big Halloween meetup?

Any lone lolitas or comm in the Southern Oregon area?
I live in SB, the scene here is deader than dead. Central Coast Rufflebutts has talked about meets, but when push comes to shove no one makes plans, and there are only a few of us so planning a day where more than one or two people can show up is remarkably difficult.

plus, no one has posted on the facebook page in ages.
I wish I could meet up with you, but I don't live in Columbus anymore. You may want to make reservations at Kihachi while you're there and ask on the event page if anyone wants to join up.
Ah, thanks! Should have realized they'd probably need to dodge the Lolita FB filter, doy.
My comm is having our Halloween meetup in November since so many people are going to HalloWien. My usual style is gothic, so I think I might sweeten it up a bit with my Halloween Treats coord.

Let's try not to shit this one up okay?

Whether you're a cosplayer, photographer, lolita, into another form of Jfash, or just interested in the con scene or getting into these hobbies, feel free to post here and find friends.

Please note this is not a hook-up thread, and please keep things /cgl/ related. <3

Pretty much nothing, but I guess that's to be expected when you're a guy

Added you on discord! I'm from MA originally but live in Japan now. I'd love to have a new otaku penpal!
Yep. I've made two IRL friends specifically from friend finder threads, one of whom I'm still extremely close with. I've also met some acquaintances and we still chat on LINE every now and then.

Low-budget fantasy movies usually use rough wool sweaters spray-painted silver. Only works if it's not supposed to be a centerpiece in full view, though.
Not until July, so plenty of time.

I'm planning on having a tabard over it, so really only the edges should be visible.
This is an odd question, but how would LARP thread recommend someone who is an artist getting in contact with a LARP group for reference photos and such?

And, how much would you guys charge for photos of yourselves in gear, in specific poses/lighting?
>And, how much would you guys charge for photos of yourselves in gear, in specific poses/lighting?
Market it as a FREE! photoshoot, give them the pictures as payment.
That would probably work if I was at a LARP, myself, but what about if I wanted someone to take photos of themselves online?

Thats fine but how would you compare the asian epoxy resins to north american ones? Any reviews?
Ive been in these threads for awhile and I thought no one could order "dangerous' materials through taobao and most people recommended buying that shit through MS?
nayrt, but I seriously love your designs! I'd buy those in a heart beat (and any honey/bee designs if you decide to make more in the future)

Aww anon! Thank you so much it means a lot. <3

For the honeybee designs I'm going to have regular releases for it so if you are interested be on the look out! Im planning on having a honey release before the end of October. And then after that I'm hoping to have about 2 releases for it a month? I'm still working out a schedule that works best for me.

I've been thinking about trying out lolita fashion but I'm worried that I might not look good in it. In most good lolita pictures I've seen the girl tends to be asian and a lot of the non asian lolita pictures tend to look a lot less good. However a lot of the asians ones do seem more professionally shot so that could play a role in it.
Bottom line is, can non asian lolitas look just as good as asian lolitas?

What's generally the line for "too fat"? I've always been curious.
If you don’t fit brand without stretching it a lot, you are fat.

Idk, why don't you ask Innocent World, Victorian Maiden, Juliette et Justine, Atelier Pierrot, and other Japanese brands who've gone out of their way to hire white models?

This. There are beauties and uggos in every race. You'll look good if you're pretty, and if you're ugly you'll look less good. Just like with every other fashion style.
I'm not a lolita, I was just wondering if there was a general guide to sizes and what is too big and etc. It's just outsider curiosity.
Certain brands are very forgiving, others not so much. I've had dresses with a minimum waist measurement of 70cm with elastic on top of that and dresses with a maximum 65cm waist with no give at all. Overall, though, I've known several girls who are actually medically obese who fit (or "fit") into lolita clothing. But whether you think they look good is up to you.
