I'm heading home from the con now. Was funny that they dumped a bunch of lanyards on the table near the doors, but they didn't bother cutting the bundles open. Had to use my keychain tool to slash the cords.

You didn't miss too much from the cosplay contest but some of the kids were kind of cute.
A lot of the costumes were well done but the hosts were very unpracticed and it showed.
There was another photographer who couldn't get out of my damn way which was annoying.
At least the lighting was better than Kumo for photography

So you have enough money to come to the con, enough money to do shit around the con, but not enough money to pay people for a room?

I will never understand brokefags, what's worse is 90% of the time you try and call their shit out they have miles of excuses as to how they actually did pay or well they offered to and it wasn't doable or they are paying back next con. I've had someone basically use my room as a crash pad and when I asked for payment or where the money was they kept the excuses up forever and probably to this day. If you have money to come to a con pay up for a place to sleep otherwise don't come.

No your ability to 'hang out' is not a supplement for paying for a room, if the room was free they'd say it was free. If you actually just showed up expecting a free room and then got pissed that he told you no, fucking lmao. You have to be fucking blind to not see that or sheltered beyond saving.

>>10898238
Step 1 - cosplay (preferably something that the community likes, not some weird niche that you like).

Step 2 - approach a cool cosplayer for a photo.

Step 3 - talk about their cosplay, the con, plans and ask if they wanna hang.

Step 4 - tag along and maybe become a degen.

lol its funny ive actually been taking pictures as a way to force myself to interact with people
im very closed off in general so thats my baseline for social interactions, that i shouldnt approach strangers and try to talk to them because it would somehow be a bother to them
i know thats a very limiting belief and its a fucking con, like, compared to normal life surrounded by normalfags, at a con youre 100% guaranteed to have something in common to talk to people about
so im trying to change and open up

Old thread is hitting the image limit >>10715389


This thread is for ouji and aristocrat (aka "boystyle") discussion. "Boystyle" is shorthand for "boystyle lolita" and refers to the masculine counterparts of Japanese lolita and, often, aristocrat fashions. There is a lot of overlap between these styles, and different people use different terms to describe them. We usually just use "ouji" here.

The main problem with these is the autists who go to them. The maids always try to make small talk with the table and ask questions and most of the time everyone just stares at them instead of talking. I've been on the other side of this type of thing so I know how awkward it is trying to lead a dry group and my friends and I interact, but it's awkward being the only few people talking in a big table. What's the point of going if you aren't going to bother interacting with the maids.

I think they are just overwhelmed by all the pretty maids in real life there. Most of these people can barely handle talking to a cashier, its understandably enough to make some people freeze up and just stare. It's kinda funny to me like watching a primitive animal... that's probably bad to say.

Any doll collectors here? I personally miss the times when EGL was more closely connected to the BJD/doll hobby so how about we have a doll thread. Some questions to get the ball rolling:

>What kind of dolls do you collect or like to look at?
>Do you like to connect the doll hobby to your love of lolita fashion or do you keep them separate?
>Do you sew for your dolls? How about other crafts?
>Any grail dolls?
>Any lolita brand collabs you like?
>Any favorite doll brands?
>Any seamstresses/other doll hobbyists you particularly like?

>What kind of dolls do you collect or like to look at?
I currently have a Little Monica, Doll Chateau & SummberBird BJD dolls that I got years ago when I was very active and young, It was around the same time I discovered lolita, but I was like 15 so dolls ended up being my hobby to actually commit for

I recently got my dolls back after several years as they'd been at my mums since I moved out, and it re sparked my interest in BJD again!

I also got my first vinyl doll this year when my partner was visiting family in china, they had a Tiny Fox - Summerberry doll on sale in a nanjing hobby store (he sent me photos of so many awesome DC displays there too), I think she's pretty cute! I'd never bought a doll with a faceup or fullset outfit before it is so much more simple lmao

>Do you like to connect the doll hobby to your love of lolita fashion or do you keep them separate?
I think they are somewhat aligned for me, I never had lolita styled dolls but since wiping mine fresh I have been set on the future goal of being able to twin with them ! (or at least try)

My ex and I used to collect them together. She was a cosplayer and lolita and had a side business making clothes for dolls, while I took the photos. I still own six of them, but they've been packed away for a long time, partly because they freak people out and partly just because my ex took most of the best clothes and wigs and I haven't been able to bring myself to spend the money on getting new stuff.

>What kind of dolls do you collect or like to look at?
I started with DDs, but really prefer resin BJDs after getting experience with them. I really like the small-batch handmade nature of them, and how much more solid they feel than vinyl dolls.
I prefer more mature-looking dolls with natural faceups. (The young-looking one I own is an outlier, bought mostly as a "mannequin" for my ex's sewing.)
>Do you like to connect the doll hobby to your love of lolita fashion or do you keep them separate?
Bit different of a question for me since I can't actually wear lolita myself, but I'm definitely a fan of it and lean toward lolita or lolita-adjacent stuff for dolls.
>Do you sew for your dolls? How about other crafts?
No, as mentioned before I was the photog half of a team that did though.
>Any grail dolls?
Not specifically dolls themselves, but I've always wanted to commission some really good Rozen Maiden outfits and wigs for a few of mine.
>Any favorite doll brands?
I'm pretty out of the loop with current stuff, but the biggest one in my photo is a Feeple65 from CP/Fairyland and is by far my favorite of the ones I own. Excellent quality, really good articulation, amazing shelf presence, and reasonably priced for what you get.
