• Cosplay
• Lolita
• J-fashion
• Conventions & gatherings
• Sewing & prop-making
• Craftsmanship tools/materials & tutorials
• LARPing
• Discussing accessories such as wigs/circle lenses/prosthetics/makeup (These must be within the context of the board-related topics listed above; weight loss threads should be kept in /fit/, beauty and fashion generals should be kept in /fa/)

Our board rules are simple:

• Thread content must be related to one of the categories covered in the list above. Off-topic threads and replies will be deleted.

Should one leave lolita while pregnant or can it be done well?
55 replies and 1 image omitted. Click here to view.
I did up until the eighth month and no one could tell because I wear ridiculously poofy AP normally, which totally hides the shape of your body other than the chest, arms, and legs
I'd think it's creepy imo.
Do it after you have the baby or before you start showing.
That's a fucked up way of putting it...
You're going to get people to hate you no matter what you do anon. As long as you don't dote on the fact that your pregnant and act normal you're not going to get judged. It's people that go out of their way to make sure you know they are with a kid to excuse their insecurities about their cordinate and hope that you knowing that will make you like them regardless.
>people would be assholes to me like you guys:
If you think anyone in this thread is being an asshole to you, I fear for how you'll react to people giving you the odd glance when you're visibly pregnant in lolita. You posted a photo of lolitas calling attention to their pregnancy, so don't flip out when one of the talking points is about that.

MCM coming up soon. Everyone ready? what are you working on? The two international competition qualifiers at the event should be interesting.

try not to shit up the thread with Nonces this time please.

An inspiration that anyone can qualify for ECG in this country
I feel sorry for Helen. Amelia will tell anyone who listens how shit she is. Helen isnt the best but at least she can sew. Itll be such an embarrassment for the UK comm.
if helen competed alone with her costume, I'd say she'd have a good chance of winning or placing based on the dress (we all know shes not a performer)
I thought if amelia handled the performance part for her at least they'd be pretty decent contenders but guess both are fucked now
Its all ego from shit people. Its scaring so many people off the UK competition scene. No one properly supports each other or has fun with it.
Having seen Amelia's performances I wouldnt recommend she does that either. Miming with expression is her best skill; her pacing and stage use tend to be poor.

What they need to do is work together to their best skills but looking at the non progress from Amelia I recon she'll drop out.

ITT: Things that people used to say you couldn't do/wear in lolita but nobody cares anymore.
I'll start:
>never show your shoulders
>don't use shiny shoes
>don't use shiny fabric/transparent fabric
>wear skirts always at the knee, never under or above

>everyone but us is dressed like sloots xD these...these non lolita whores
You sound like a special snowflake
No, solid coloured and simply patterned socks used to be the norm, then everybody decided they must have overpriced tights with stupidly busy prints all over them that throw off the balance of the outfit as blouses are generally solid colours.
I didn't know what bait shoes were until I googled it; I hated everything I saw but I love these Bodyline shoes and really really want them in navy and/or brown. They're cute enough to lend a bit of maturity to sweet and elegant enough to wear with sweet-classic but not overly pointy.
>Wore lolita to dog show
>Ended up on all fours in the grass surrounded by fur babies
>Dress got pee on it
>Don't even curr
The problem with this pic is that she looks like she's just wearing a sundress, it otherwise has nothing lolita about it.

I see a lot of fetish gear in j-fashion recently and I'm wondering, where are good places to shop for this sort of thing?
It's hard finding reputable places that sell cute things. Most are Chinese stores or shops re-selling Chinese bullshit

How do you feel about people using sex toys as a fashion accessory?

>I think it's the same size of my head, if not bigger
I thought that was common deesu, my head is 22" and my thighs are 24"
Link please? And links to any other Aliexpress sex toys you could recommend?
Ive always been reluctant to order sex toys off ali but with glass I think it would be okay right? Glass is kind of hard to fuck up with weird chemicals and unless its visibly broken or chipped its safe right?

There is a moon and star one that I really want though

Can anyone give me the quick rundown on the titty monster?
28 replies and 1 image omitted. Click here to view.
google it.. found a handful off of someones deviant art page. the one that scurred me was this asian widowmaker (w/geisha makeup???) lol. Other than that notable, got the usual beached whale cosplayers etc.
I don't want to stalk her, I just want to find her cosplay page so I can fap to those big fat tits
I don't think she has a medical issue, anon. For fucks sake. Not everyone with natural boobs and a small frame has to have something wrong with them because their tits aren't what you consider proportionate.
She is obviously just not wearing a bra.. thats it. Her boobs sag like they would when you have that size. It doesnt help that her dress doesnt have straps
That does NOT look like Maki in any way shape or form.

I've never been into lolita but there's a lot of crossover between goths and lolita so sometimes casual goth-wear is lolita-esque (Like the skirts in OP) so I've been wearing casual lolita by accident since I was in middle school apparently.

I think casual lolita is better as a biased non-lolita-loving-person since a lot of people i see doing lolita are in their 20s and uggo as hell. You gotta be cute AF to pull it off. Casual lolita is more accessible and i wish more people would do it.

Fatty-chans would look better in it too since you can better customize for your bodyshape and not look like a fat cupcake.
Thanks for sharing?

Post caps and share stories of itas or new lolitas saying dumb shit that makes you roll your eyes

This is a gothic dress that she called classic. Why can't new-litas tell the difference?
If you are going to start a thread post more stuff newfag
I have a story.

Going to a public meet with out group which typically is the meets itas go to. Sit down at the table and start up a conversation with a Lolita to make friends since I'm typically the one that reaches out to the newbies to help them out of they need someone. Girl is wearing baby the stars shine bright lucky pack dress set from two years prior. Pretty average looking for a Lolita but looks like she's done some reasearch and made a boring but passable cordinate. Tell her I have the same dress but I'm the black color. She gets excited that she's got the same dress as someone else in the community. I say " yeah baby the stars shine bright is one of my favorite brands". She gets a look on her face that looks almost annoyed and confused at the same time.

"Anon my dress isn't baby the stars shine bright" she says as she touches the hem. I get confused because there wasn't a replica made of the dress and ask her what brand it is.

"It's btssb" she says as if the abbreviation was a word. I try my hardest to contain my laughter and explain to her that it's actually B.T.S.S.B and is a abrevarion for baby the stars shine bright. She gets embarrassed at her newbie mistake and is quiet the whole day. She then later messaged me on Facebook to help her know the abreavtions of the brands and lingo of Lolita.

The Arda wigs base bag makes that even more painful than it should be
Thing is though, this girl then posted a picture of her weeb collection and she had a pin board filled with Morning Musume keychains/badges and Tokyo Mee Mew keychains/badges. Why not wait till your bag arrived(shed ordered one) and make a cohesive one with one of those collections. Posting what she did made her look like a bandwagoner when she really wasn't.
Seriously why did they have to plaster their fucking logo on it

Idk I'm not a fan of that idea. You can always use some larger filler pieces creatively (flowers/non-merch decorations, patterned background, large print outs, etc) if you're lacking in merch ATM. Especially that combo of anime sounds like such a dissimilar mish mash of stuff.
i feel like you would be better off doing a series of pouches rather than one whole bag. I'd understand multifandom bags if they were similar series or there was an overarching theme (ex: gundam and evangelion, white haired anime boys, imas and ll) but when there is no correlation it still seems like throwing shit together randomly

Old Thread autosaged >>9232909

This thread is for ouji and aristocrat (aka "boystyle") discussion. "Boystyle" is shorthand for "boystyle lolita" and refers to the masculine counterparts of lolita and, often, aristocrat fashions. There is a lot of overlap between these styles, and different people use different terms to describe them. So, consider this a thread for those whose style is on the right half of Buttcape's Lolita Family Triangle: http://www.kawacura.com/moripress/wp-content/uploads/2015/06/0dmmLH6-350x350.jpg

Anyone have a guide on exercises to do to look more feminine?
are you asking for the trap aesthetics meme? it is not real

otherwise, some general tips:

>get into a good skincare routine
>wear at least minimal makeup (foundation, concealer, eyeliner/shadow)
>do squats to have a better ass
>take up minimal space with your body language

maybe check the crossdressing thread for more tips. if you want to know how to do more feminine ouji this thread may be more helpful, but otherwise the crossdress thread may be your guide

How do you guys usually ship out posters and charms? Do you use the mailing tubes for the posters? I was looking at Staples and ULINE, but is there somewhere else you suggest?
I remember some post a few weeks back that flamed some con organizer for saying cosplayers don't buy "**expletive**" (assuming he means they don't spend as the typical con-goer-they only come to do "photoshoots" etc. After awhile I've been taking note on cosplayers vlogs - and this is just my speculation based off of watching a few years of a couple of cosplayers vlogs that either they simply hit "the dealers room" but show very little in the way of loot haul vlogs in comparison - or most don't even venture to an artist alley other than a drive by walk through.

Now just at a recent con I normally attend, I did watch our local popular cosplayers venture. Sure enough, either it was dealers hall emphasis (with a small items bought) or just strolling through the AA to vlog and do more selfies...lol....

If you think you know what I am getting at. I think the short answer is just ignore them, but it did somewhat shed some insight as to what that con organizer was implying.
I think you're kind of a fucking idiot?
Cosplayers buy shit from me all the time.

Please don't go to the regular /cgl/ meetup, it's mostly cringe crossposters that aren't even gulls. Join the discord now so you can make it to the gull meetup.
is it The Seagull Lounge?
I've read about this elusive gull discord for months now, but whenever someone posts a link it's always to some weird fetish group or something.

They turn people away for AA tables anon. They are fully booked for AA every year. How small do you think this con is?
That and I think they have a waiting list as well if someone doesn't show up.
As someone that's on the waitlist, yeah, no chance of getting a table. List is a mile long
Are they still doing it by jury or have they switched over to the first-come or raffle system? I never liked the jury system because an ex-friend of mine sold complete shit for years that was festival craft stall tier and yet she kept getting a table and splitting it with another ex-friend who drew cheap DA level fanart of her OCs and any straight couple she could find even if she didn't ship it just because they were straight.
Just finished some Ofuda for my Sailor Mars cosplay. Keep an eye out for a Sailor Scout group! One of many anyway, I'm sure.
