It never seemed like something I'd have to worry about in my mid 20s. At least I'll be able to work on cosplays non-stop and enjoy my convention in a month. Then I can worry about the rest of my life.

So long as you go for appropriate characters - depending on how you look.

Give up on high schoolers, aim for college student or adult characters - i don't know, teachers maybe?

I'm not really caught up on recent stuff, so i don't know if theres many 20-30ish adult characters worth cosplaying

Tried making the maid outfit from Tokyo Mew Mew when I was 12. I had no pattern, had the flimsiest knowledge about basic construction, compounded with fairly few cosplay resources 10+ years ago and it was a recipe for disaster. I spent a bunch of saved up money on atrocious pink and red fabric, realized about $70 in that I was way in over my head and didn't have a clue what I was doing, I'd barely had the dress and apron done before i chucked it in the trash. I wish I'd saved a picture of how awful it looked so we could all bask in the cringe together

If it's actual "CREEP" shots, you can go to the university about it.
Of course it's always better to just tell them to kindly stop being assholes and do something productive with their time, do this IRL or they'll just mock you over social media about you being a baby bo peep.
University is highschool still.

Hi Anon.

I recently had the same news dropped on me.

My dad is currently undergoing chemo and it really scares me. We found the cancer really early, and are moving as fast as possible, but I'm still worried. It doesn't feel fair.

I basically started visiting home as often as possible because it's possible that by the end of the year he won't even be alive anymore.

It sucks, it really sucks.

I'm wishing the best for you. Stay strong, when someone is fighting cancer they need an emotional rock to stand on. You need to be there for your family.

Ah, the myth of STEM degrees meaning guaranteed employment. That would be the case if everyone and their grandma weren't getting STEM degrees and competition for good jobs wasn't fierce as fuck. What kind of job are you looking for?

A professor told us employers saying you're 'overqualified' is really a way of saying 'underqualified' in the sense that you don't have the schooling/training/etc they want. You do kind of screw yourself over if you get a degree for a job that doesn't require it because they could hire someone with less education (so they can justify a lower pay) to do it. I really wish they would teach kids to think about what kind of work they'd like to be doing after school. Because then you get kids who realize they only needed an associate's for what they really wanted to do, but they assumed they'd be a more attractive candidate with dime-a-dozen bio degrees and now they're 'overqualified'. Or that (as was the case for my friend, who had all the resources to know better) you can't do research with just a bachelor's in any field. Urgh. Makes me mad how little career counseling they do in high schools.

It can take time to find a job in your field, and it may be one you absolutely hate, but just be patient and apply to everything.

>>9441932
Your professor is talking out his ass. Overqualified 100% means "I'm not wasting time training you when I can already tell you're going to be looking for other work immediately."

The real pro tip is to just leave Uni out when applying for these jobs. You shouldn't be making shit up but there's no rule against leaving non illegal shit out.
>>
>>9441953
I still think what he was saying holds some truth, even if the way he said it was silly- get the education/training you need for the job you want. Don't assume employers will hire someone with more education just because a bachelor's has more prestige than an associate's. Some places have to pay you more from the get-go if you have a higher degree, so they avoid hiring overqualified people even if they think they'd stick around (they know high-paying STEM jobs are extremely competitive and the likeliness of you finding a better job will depend on you having a degree AND experience, so it's a safe bet you would stick around, but again, they don't want to pay you more for what someone with less education could do). Mind you, I'm not saying bachelor's degrees are bad investments, but the endgame is finding work.

You get a degree to get a job. If you aren't getting the jobs in your field that you thought you could with your degree BECAUSE of your degree, you need to rethink your career plan. These companies are hiring someone else with the qualifications they preferred, even if they are 'less qualified' than you, and that's the fact of the matter. (As for work outside your field, well, yeah, they KNOW for a fact you're out of there as soon as you find a job in your field. It sucks.)

The problem with leaving out uni is that it looks like you have a huge gap of time where you didn't do anything.
>>
Shit with uni happened- so busy with life and making it work that I went out onto a residency missed the first day completely and have now seen the update in the student centre informing me that I could of done it one town over rather than fly 2 fucking states over and waste close to a grand in money. I'm really struggling to figure out how I missed this new info and why my residency dates weren't in showing up on my uni calander. I'm so disappointed in myself and as money is really tight this is just a mistake I didn't think I was going to make. I hate myself, this stupid degree and that I can't get my life together.

Your "friend" sounds like a bitch.
Like seriously.

Anyway, straight guy here, let me try and salvage "my side" real quick.
I can be "just friends" with females, problem is, people that are eccentric and people who choose alternate hobbies (like you, me, that guy you're talking about) are normally eccentric or have quirks that makes us a little off in the social department, and are just as bad at reading into things as you are in this situation. This might be unsalvageable but next time (if you allow a next time) make it very clear that you're not going to date them, like be blunt as fuck, it won't hurt their feelings if they don't have time to "develop" those feelings in the first place.
Something along the lines of "Yeah cool, I'd like to hang out, but let me be blunt and say I'm not looking for a romantic relationship"
Sure, to some that may sound pretentious. But hey. You have to get it through some thick skulls some times.
>>
>>9442001
Sorry, correcting myself.
You defiantly knew what was happening.
Your friend made you think you were overreacting

Again, she REALLY sounds like a bitch to me.
A guy texting you alot for no reason?
"Oh he doesn't like you."

I just want some cosplay friends. I want to have some people to get excited for cons and cosplaying our fav characters, maybe even make a group. The only person I know that is into cosplay isnt really that much into it and cons with him are pretty boring since he doesnt want to do stuff.. Really have to get over my shyness and just talk to people at cons.
On a more positive note, my brother and his girlfriend just recently said they wanna come along to the next con since their both into gaming and getting into Anime.

I've been so tired lately. Even when I sleep, I still feel tired. Not my eyes burning type of tired, but just feeling exhausted deep inside.
When I wake up, within 2 hours I want to sleep again and drag myself through the day until I get home and force myself to stay up until 9pm when I fall into bed and knock out instantly.

This is sucking time out of cosplay plans and coord plans but I can't help it. No amount of hours slept the previous night, coffee, tea, water, vitamins, protein, or sugar can keep me alert and keep my eyes from feeling like they're gonna fall shut at any moment.

Why must my body betray me

Get tested for mono. I had the same problem and my doctor kept insisting it must be anemia or depression since I was a kissless virgin at the time, but it turned out to be mononucleosis. Apparently you can even get it by drinking from the same glass as an infected person or something like that.
>>
>>9442182
My boyfriend did have mono in the past and we just got done spending 3 months together, but he left back home (LDR) but I'm not entirely sure it is mono. I don't have the fever or swollen glands, just the exhaustion.

I just want to sleep for 15 hours and wake up and sleep again, I have no motivation to drag myself through work or school or graduation or anything else.

>>9442190
When I got it I didn't notice any swollen glands and the only 'fever' I had felt more like a mild summer cold. It might not be mono, but it's worth looking into.

Hey I considered the semi creepy vibes too, no worries. I'm not that naive. (I've had a stalker before actually) I'm just typically good at knowing when dudes like this have bad intent and he made no comments on my physical appearance or really anything other than my parasol. Also the odds of me getting kidnapped in said popular theme park are 0% since I'm not a child. I think if somebody wanted to stalk me they probably could've found me outside of a public theme park.

>>9442147
Dude was very smart and made me feel intimidated since he was previously some sort of film teacher. Very good life advice, also kinda a dork. The philosophical sort, from New York, moved to London, now he's here temporarily till he moves to Japan for job opprtunities. I found that interesting, but overall it was kind of a mysterious encounter and he had a vocal dialect that I haven't really heard ever where I'm from (the south), so it really stood out. Then again anything stands out when all people wear is khakis and all they drive are trucks.

Epstein-Barr virus (mononucleosis) is spread through coughing and sneezing from someone with an active infection. It's just not quite as contagious as the common cold so it's association with that form of transfer is not so commonly known.

It's mostly known as the "kissing disease" because you can catch it kissing someone who has had the infection at any point in their lifetime. After infection, it lies latent in the body with the possibility to infect anyone with that sort of close contact. You can catch it though from someone with an active infection who coughs or sneezes near you. You just aren't as likely to catch it as you would a cold.

Update.
I saw him again yesterday in full Lolita. We grabbed dinner and just talked about general things. I listened to him teach me about books and famous designers. Found out that he knew my name because someone in his life was also named the same name so it was more of an impulse thing. Found out he's a fashion designer, actually but he was more of the /fa/ type so he didn't particularly consider it real fashion. He said though when he went out and saw how others interacted with me he felt his perspective change and thought that Lolita was more or less the future sort of inspiration for other main stream fashions. We talked about life and countries amongst fun things like riding rides. Also he gave me a lot of inspirational life advice without hitting on me once. So, yeah, I casually accidentally met a high fashion menswear creator from NY for holding a parasol. Really nice experience and kinda magical.
>>
>>9443175
I uh, don't work there no. And it wasn't Epcot. Did some other person have the same experience I did but in another park? Or are you his brother, maybe?

You better not show him this or I'll be embarrassed. I mean it.

This is so true, I'm dying.
Holy fuck I didn't realize how bad this sounds out of context. What's worse is that I've straight up gifted socks that have dingy stains on the soles to people before, and of course they loved it and it's just kind of a "it happens, but they're cleaned and nobody will see that part so no biggie" thing; but just imagine someone opening that present at a large birthday party in front of everyone.

I did think that but I take a multivitamin every day that has 100% B12 in it, and I get about 50-100% extra of some things in my diet.

I did realize that I've only been tired since I've started taking my multivitamin every day and today I skipped it and feel significantly better. I was researching if there was a correlation between them and it turns out a lot of people feel the same way as I do,
after they take their vitamins they just crash hours later.
I could be overloading on vitamins too and that's why I feel like utter shit.

After months of unemployed depression, I pulled myself out of bed at 6am today and made huge strides in a prop I thought I gave up on a month ago.

Oh well. Time for the inevitable post-breakthrough crash where I'll masturbate to yaoi, fall asleep, and tell myself that I'll find a job "later tonight."

Still, baby steps. It feels great to actually be doing things again (besides lying in bed feeling numb)!

Relating to your problem, hook him, what are you waiting for? Maybe long distance relationships are iffy, but how will you know if it works for y'all if you never try? I would just tell him how you feel, he will most likely do the same, and make yourselves exclusive before the con.

Funny story about this, when I applied for my now career job, I didn't leave it out completely but I just put the relevant courses I'd taken that pertained to the position on my resume.
I never actually graduated but I'm pretty sure my boss assumes I have a degree and that's why she hired me.
We never talked about it but occasionally she will mention something about me graduating from XYZ school and I just don't correct her.
A year later and I'm kicking ass in my chosen field with no degree.

i'm having such a hard time making actual friends in the lolita community. don't get me wrong, i've met a lot of nice girls, but "nice girls" is kind of all they are. i want to pass the awkward pleasantries stage and enter an actual friendship, but i don't have enough in common with most of them or they just don't seem interested in having a conversation that surpasses the typical "how are you today"

that and i've met some downright weird people, but that comes with any niche interest group. i've just had no luck making female friends because we're all constantly stuck in this faux-friendship rut of hollow compliments and a single shared interest. i have trouble enjoying comm meets for the same reason, because all we do is dress somewhat similarly and spend a few hours fawning over each other in a public space

i'm definitely too picky, but i just really wish there was another lolita i clicked with.

Went out to celebrate a friends engagement, was so happy for her and I'm really excited about being a bridesmaid. Wore something 'normie' because posh bar. Got creeped on. It's been so long since I went out not in lolita, or with bf present, or both that I was completely blindsided. Need my petti as a deterrent clearly, because I am not quick witted enough with my retorts.

Then found out that a family friend I grew up with committed suicide yesterday, so feeling really numb. I haven't really spoken to him in 15 years but we were like cousins growing up and he was only 28, world makes no sense... Worry how it's going to affect my parents too (Mum has know his parents since she was at school, Dad is the dad's best friend and lost his own girlfriend to suicide last year).

Ok maybe this is one of those "it doesnt really work and only worked for you" things;
but have you considered volunteering somewhere with whatever degree you have, currently?
I mean, it sucks to not have a job, but it would be less stressful than interning [working for free on a damn schedule], and would still count as "experience". unless its something you cant use in that way. STEM is a pretty giant area. What type of degree did you get?

I'm not sure how to feel. I haven't worn lolita in months because I've been so focused on my studies.

Maybe you can't pull off salopettes, I know I cant.
But skirts+blouse look amazing on people with boobs if you aren't big everywhere, and just get custom blouses, which is easy with taobao. Or just custom jsk/ops. Seriously though, never salopettes. qq

My boobs aren't big enough that I can't wear brand JSKs. They fit in a good amount of them, I just hate how they look. Noticeable boobs never suit lolita in my opinion. Doesn't help that I'm into sweet.

Maybe I just need to work on my self esteem and be okay with not having my idea of a perfect body. And I do like skirts with blouses a lot, so I'll take your advice.

I had the same thing happen with me, but not lolita, with vacation. I have 4 day work weeks, and every blue moon, it lines up in a way where i get 4 day weekend (friday off first week, saturday, sunday, monday off another week).

Months ahead of time, I planned to go to boston to visit my friend who works there weekdays, and my other bestie was going to.

Other bestie ends up having to stay home because parents decided to leave town, and she has to babysit her sisters.

Friend from boston decides shes tired of boston and rather spend those days somewhere else, even though the whole point of the trip was "oh you already have a hotel so it'll be a cheap vacation for all of us" which is what was initially discussed.
Tried to make new plans with other people, but its so close to the time, noone can take the days off. I feel like I wasted my 4 day weekend, and its not even until next week.

Snap, I've been getting back into vintage too. What I've noticed is that it really triggers the few body image insecurities I have in a way that lolita doesn't. I'm not one of those people who got into lolita because it makes me feel pretty and nothing else does, but I've gotten so used to looking almost exclusively at jfash that I've forgotten what mainstream stuff is like. A lot of normie trends objectively look better on tall girls, or, if it's pre-60s, really curvy girls - total opposite of how good jfash is for short flatties. Even when I'm looking at modern normie clothes it's so hard to guess how they'll fit on me from photos when the models are inevitably 6" or more taller than me.

So my boss had an afternoon talk with me concerning my subpar work and lack of enthusiasm. He doesn't think I should be in public administration anymore and I need to prepare being laid off soon. I called my Dad tonight. My Dad is attorney and he agreed with my boss. It was more or less a "I told you so."

The reason I went into public administration was to get away from my Mother's career in finance (who is disgraced for her unethical behavior from the 2008 crash) and my Dad's career because I find law to be a bore.

I'm probably going to move back with my parent's soon and sell my brand to pay for future expenses in school. The thought I have to change careers so early is frustrating. Most of the time one's career is determined by their parents so I may have to pick between finance or law.

Honestly I don't think older people have a place at con outside of staffing that much.

Every con I've been to is quite awkward when old people try to start up conversation or be your friend. It's even worse with the old guys that will hit on you and the breeders who bring their vile screeching children.

I think comic cons and fan expo events are better fits for older people since the crowd in general is old.

tl;dr old ppl are no good

Do you want to be in public administration?
If so, it's definitely not too late to stay.
Tell your boss that his talk made you realise how much you value your job, and then work hard to change his opinion of you. Ask for a review in 3 months to see what progress you have made. Demonstrate commitment and they'll be happy to keep you.

If you don't like your field, think hard about what it is YOU do want to do. Make a list of things about your current (and any previous jobs), education etc. you have enjoyed, a list of skills you have, target fields where you get to use your skills in an environment you prefer.

e.g. good at science, like helping people, enjoy a sociable work environment, prefer work tasks to be mostly routine/repetitive = look at training as a lab tech (completely pulled out of thin air example)

There are a million different jobs out there anon

You're looking up to an abusive relationship that led one of the people involved to become a heavily tattoo'd, wonky-fake-titted obese camwhore. I don't even know what happened to the fakeboy but I bet it's nothing good.

Do the stylists think it's cool and edgy to contrast a beautiful, floral feminine vintage dress with a model who has a snot-green undercut and raunchy chest tattoos? It's an awful image and I don't want the dress anymore, or any dress modeled by one of these ogres. I don't think lolitas should be lovlies 24/7 but I'm glad the brands at least choose pretty models that don't look like they'd reek of cigarette smoke and cheap liquor.

Can we trade bodies? I'm short but curvy and I really wish I could be flat and look okay in lolita. Also as someone who has always wanted a flat chest even before getting into jfash, I get jealous when people are insecure about being flat. I know it makes no sense to be jealous of insecurity because I'm insecure, but I'd rather be insecure about having a flat chest. At least lolita would help me with that insecurity instead of making it 10x worse. Also I have no interest in vintage fashion, so don't tell me to just wear that instead of the one fashion I actually like.

Got caught up in the first feel forgot the other. I came to the realization just recently that I like dating women but I like having sex with men and not the other way around at all. I would love to have a lolita gf to go and do all kind s of stuff with together, but I have zero sexual attraction to women. But then I really get bored and exasperated dating guys because they never seem to want to do anything but I like the d. so I guess I'll just never date anyone again.

Thanks, anons. I know rationally there's not too much I could've done to keep me from thinking this guy is cute, but I still feel like I did something wrong. I could never cheat on my boyfriend, I really do think we'll be together for a while. (Who doesn't, though?) That's why I feel so bad about this; and it's so atypical, I don't usually find guys attractive in the first place.

I hope the butterflies will fade away; I'll keep hope!

Are you me, anon? Got a MSc in the time it takes to normally get a bachelors in a STEM field (with experience to boot), all jobs contract work with zero benefits and insultingly low pay, people who actually hold "real" positions at the company (purely because they got in when the market was better) use your position as an excuse to treat you like utter shit.
I ended up doing a year at Clorox health, after doing all the work while the other chemists sat around and socialized (and bullied me, I tried filing a harassment claim but there was literally no HR and management was part of the clique), I found a huge scientific error with how they justified one of their products which if the FDA knew would put the company under even worse scrutiny than it already is, BUT it implicated someone who had since moved on to management(yup, same one) so instead of fixing it, it was covered up and I was unceremoniously let go.

I took the 6 months unemployment from the state and re enrolled in a CS program, now I have an internship making literally double what I made at Clorox and will most likely be hired in after the summer, making even more money. If it wasn't such a hassle, I'd probably sue for discrimination but at least I have kinda a happy ending

TL;DR:
>Got an advanced STEM degree
>Clorox is the literal worst
>Now 23 and on my second career
>Seriously, fuck Clorox

Some actually relevant feels:
>Reconnected with dude I had a semi-flirtatious friendship with for years.
>He ditched the shitty relationship that made us lose contact
>He has since found the kawaii animu princess of his dreams
>I've also found someone I'm extremely smitten with
>I'm glad we're both happy, and we both want a genuine friendship
>We're both going to the same con in a couple months
>I really want to hang out as like, couples
>Worried it'll be weird because our former friendship was based on being attracted to each other (nothing ever came of it, but still)

All four of us cosplay, so it would be really cool if everyone got along. This might be the making of a cool cosplay friend group and I'm kinda excited.

Now some sad feels
>Best friend of a decade
>one that got me into cosplay/going to conventions
>Always traditionally stayed with me during our home con
>Staying with this one girl that actively hates me instead
>(Used to be friends, but used me/took advantage of me in a big way and hates me because I called her out on her shit and broke contact)
>Gives bullshit excuse as to why
>"We can still hang out, if you're going"
>oh

I know it's because he wants to get high at the con and they're the ones who are into that stuff while my idea of con partying is having some wine and playing Mario Party, but it still kinda hurts. I guess I'm going through a lot of changes this year, gulls.

I don't know if it works for sweet but if you have a small waist with a larger bust (which doesn't always look good in lolita) you should have a look a corsets/waist cinchers. I wear gothic so it's easier for me to pair it but it definitely makes things looks more flattering.

This happened to me as well. Your story is a bit more budlite than mine but: Similar situation to you but she bailed for a really stupid reason (which was actually a lie for an even stupider reason, which I found out about later) so I stopped initiating hanging out with her. She had flaked in the past too and was also pretty self absorbed, should have seen the flags before deciding I wanted to be close friends.

Years later, I am happy with my friendships while last I heard she still has a hard time holding on to people. I have other friends who are at least honest with me or don't flake unless it's a good reason.

Things turn out a lot better when you don't enable that kind of bullshit or at least speak up about it if it bothered you. I let it slide and had some of the worst friendships of my life.

They're not all that bad or anything but it's weird knowing that despite accepting whatever stuff they do even if it's silly, they'd probably cut me off the moment they'd think I'm not as ~progressive~ as them.

For real anon, you sound cute, but careful with this "I'm nothing" talk. You're probably just joking but sheltered homeschool-chans are both adorable and incredibly vulnerable to abuse because they lack both self-esteem and the experience to notice the warning signs of being undervalued and used. I'm from a conservative family that think normal relationships are for slutty trash and it really fucked up my ability to distinguish between "normal healthy thing that my family think is evil because they're incredibly religious" and "actual predatory, abusive or irresponsible behaviour that anyone would think is bad".

I'm not sure if this is a situation 4chan can help you with, but try to build real-world social networks around people that aren't from your homeschool bubble or his friends, and watch out for signs of him trying to distance you from other people (when you have a shitty family and no other friends, it's easy for abusers to justify isolating you by encouraging you to drop contact with your family - your priority should be to make other friends as well).

He's like hundreds of miles away and I have my needs. What really irks me is that he's trying to dictate what I can and can't do even though he's hundreds of miles away.

Looks like you have a big ol' wiggly worm on the end of your hook
>>
>>9445654
Is this bait or something???? How could someone cheat on their SO and not expect a breakup.
>>
>>9445683
I thought the /cgl/ rule was cheating is OK if it's with the same sex, or was it opposite sex of your current partner...
>>
>>9445693
The /cgl/ rule is to be completely and utterly self-centered and uncaring at all times and blame other people for the bad things you do.
>>
>>9445654
nice bait, /pol/. now go home

I wish but I think this is actually talking about one of my friends, I'm just afraid to ask.

Yes it is.

It's not. Only income above the limit of your old tax bracket is taxed at your new tax rate. To have copped an extra $3500 in tax above what you were already taking out you'd need to have had one insane as fuck raise

It's only going to get worse. You'll continue growing older but the crowds will continue being full of teenagers. What else do you expect from a con?
My local fencing group is mostly 30-something dudes, though. Teens show up sometimes when a new tv series or game popularises fencing but they usually drop out once the hype blows over.

Fanplusfriend has done a couple silk releases. Their cuts are sometimes bad but occasionally they do something nice

Some people sell secondhand brand on eBay, I've done it before but left because it was harder than using LM and they charged me fees to sell

Get yourself a cute feminine bf, that's what I did and I'm finally happy. He's nice, not annoying like most guys, and attractive
>>
>>9445553
Wow. They could have just asked you not to.
>>
>>9444629
If you have no sexual attraction to women, it's not really dating, is it? Just get a female BFF who you go to movies and dinner and museums with and dress up together, it's normal behaviour and not lesbian-exclusive.

I mean, assuming you're a woman from your post. If you're a guy that's kind of a more difficult situation, but I don't think their date not wanting to have sex is a problem many gay guys face so I assumed you were female.
>>
>>9445903
Anon, that's great! I'm so proud of you!
>>
>>9444629
Its perfectly fine for couples to do their own things in my opinion, so long as you are with someone who you share some interests with, and care for, it's no big issue if from time to time you need to girlie-girlie things away from them.

I mean, sure, some guys are total bores who don't even like trying anything new. But plenty of men are open minded.

Seems kinda pointless. Most would just be fresh out of Uni. Aren't these things usually 10+ years?

I don't have a bf, but I understand this so much. I almost never want sex, but my period completely changes that along with amplifying my feelings of love for my crush even more. I also don't get cramps, and while I get more irritable, I'm an easily angered, emotional mess most of the time anyway, so there's not a lot of negatives. I feel bad for girls who can't experience a period as awesome as mine. The only real downside is most likely not being able to have sex on my period once I start dating my crush, but who knows, maybe he's into that. Though the greater desire for dick stays for a few days after my period ends, so it's okay if he isn't. I know because my period just ended yesterday.

>tfw 10-year reunion next month

I am an old lolita.

>>9444990
I share this feel so much. I'm not even a joking type and refrain from swearing in person. What's really galling is the same people going "omg this is so racist" are the same ones going "white people are awful". And I'm speaking as a brown hispanic immigrant from a third world country before you get any ideas about dismissing me because of my skin. They're perfectly nice and lovely people, as long as they see you as part of the tribe. Otherwise you're fair game for rape, pilliage, and feed to the dogs. The local non-sperg cosplay community is pretty small and webbed together so you have to put up with it and not get ostracized to make any friends at all.
>>
>>9445543
>>9445557
Underrated.
>>
>>9446092
The type of people who moan about cultural appropriation and white people cosplaying as asian characters, and then gush over black/hispanic race bending cosplayers?
>>
>>9446045
That sounds so odd to me, my vag hurts so much that's the last thing I want even my bf don't mind it really. It's nice to hear periods are not torment for everyone. I guess I still have it pretty good though.

Is it over for me?

Thanks anon, I am going to try my best now. It's just so annoying that I have created a group chat for all of to communicate too and she's just unresponsive and irresponsible for that matter.

I'm 26 and what is this
Most of my comm is in their early 30s. I couldn't afford burando until I was out of college

I think you still look cute in frills anon-chan.
>>
>>9446470
Move in to commissions. Start selling your shit and going to cons as a vendor.
>>
>>9446501I have average skills so nobody would buy from me. And I don't think I would enjoy it. I'm still a huge weeb and watch my shows and play my games, but I kinda hate getting out.
>>
>>9446490
Theres a certain self-depreciating attitude on /cgl/ that cakes can't cosplay or look cute enough for lolita.

Despite most of /cgl/ probably pushing their late 20s or early 30s.
>>
>>9446553
Does the idea of Christmas cake really even exist in Japan anymore?
>>
>tfw mori is dead so went to lolita
>tfw lolita is dying
No but really, I love mori. I wish there was a bigger community for it.
>>
>>9446570
For a second I misread that as "tfw mom is dead", so count your blessings.

I want a ramen noodles-themed coord, but I'm too fat from eating noodles to wear one.

You got this anon. Weird shit happens, just don't let it happen again. People are gonna knock you because that's such an easy thing to shove in your face, but keep your head up.

It did about 4 years ago. I went in October and a ton of places had brochures for adorable Christmas cakes. I brought a bunch home because I like cake decorating.

I mostly didn't tell her because when it comes to her body, she's a little self-conscious due to a super conservative upbringing. She was already super flustered by the whole situation so I didn't want to make it seem like I was teasing her or anything.
