Nowadays most companies have extremely discreet packaging.

Why do so many newbie Lolitas post in groups asking if something is Loli-able and when they say no, probably not, they go "well I'm new and I wanted to try it". Goes double in handmade because they usually can't sew either. I don't get it. Shouldn't it be common sense that you if you're new to something it's harder to pull off nontraditional things?

i'm in college and have wanted to cosplay since i was like 12. i don't have the courage to wear costumes in public and i'm way too much of a perfectionist (without the skill) so i want to commission a few cosplays.

i'm not insecure about my looks at all, i just am insecure about being judged on my coosplay/confidence in said cosplay :/ but it's pretty much what i want to do every year and pussy out.

I posted my coord on CoF 11 hours ago. I took advice from a discord server and they were good. I am really satisfied with my coord and I went to sleep expecting to see a lot of likes when I wake up.
>10 hours later
TFW it only got like 20 likes and is buried under a shit ton of other coords and I can’t find it on the feed

I never watched Watamote for the same reason, a bunch of friends recommended the manga to me in late high school but I couldn't bear it. I'm out of my weeb phase but it's still too cringey to look back on.
>>
>>9714454
There's one girl in a sewing group that posted an ugly, ill-fitting Black Butler cosplay pattern and was like "I want to make a Lolita dress, is this a good pattern?" and when people said no, it's better to use a well-fitted bodice pattern and a rectangle skirt, here's how, she was like "Well I'm not much of a Lolita or a sewer so I wanted to use a pattern!" Another one a few days ago was insisting this gross neon colored rockabilly dress was Loli-able and kept linking to a super ita tutorial when people said it wasn't even though the question was "do you think I could use this for Lolita?" Why can't these girls just buy a fucking Bodyline dress, it's not that hard.

I want to buy a cosplay. But I am a sperg and will drop my spaghetti at any con I go to. Also I feel like I'll get shit on for buying a cosplay, even though I like the character. Dunno how to feel about it.
In better news, my itabag merch is coming in the mail which makes me a little happier.

Pretty much this but with insecurity about looks too.

>>9714499
If you like the character you should do it! Unless you’re entering a comp, there’s nothing wrong with buying your costume. Just don’t claim to have made it.

I feel the same about New game! in like the opposite way, I can't bring myself to watch it because the MC has my dream jo AND she got it right out of highschool... anime starts to suck and feel bad after you realize escapism doesn't actually let you have the same lives as the characters... maybe that's why I still cosplay

Wtf, dude, are you doing anything to get your dream job? You can find job as indie dev super easy and you don't have to have degree. I know five people that get their jobs after high school because they have decent portfolio or they got hired after interships. Just follow your dreams, yo.

I get the feeling that a lot of the time, these people don't actually care about the hobby (I've seen this happen in several other hobbies too) and just want to feel like part of a group while also being the most special one there while also not putting in too much effort because ew, effort. They just want everyone to pat them on the ass and were never really going to listen to anyone's advice in the first place.

Well despite their movies making billions Marvel's comicbook numbers have been going down and down and down for the past few years, so a place like Italy wouldn't really be up to speed with their stuff.
Also places like Brazil, France, Mexico, Italy and Argentina have their own regional preferences in comics/vidya/anime and it's usually pretty apart from what's hot in the US/UK.

Worst case scenario, you will either regret dressing up in front of people because you feel embarrassed...or you will regret never having done something you've always wanted to. Best case scenario, you have fun trying something you've always wanted to.

I struggle with anxiety as well but the embarrassment/anger/sadness you may feel at stupid randos' reactions will eventually fade away; don't let your fear of them dictate your actions

my whole class is so normie. there's 1 real weeb who I obviously talk to since we have some things in common but he's the embodiment of a literal neckbeard. nice guy, but i just dont see us becoming close.

I did join a discord for my school's esports club though so im hoping to get the guts to show up and meet some of them, since I saw people talk about anime in one of the channels.
I feel like a complete loser too. I don't drink or party and worry a lot about doing well at school.

Also, I'm making my first cosplay props this year and i'm a little overwhelmed.

Speechless, she very much wants to fuck you if even half of what you said is true. You've got to take initiative tho. Get over being such a sissy about it, when you're cuddling next let your arms drift together, start rubbing your hand lightly on her and watch her match you. It will escalate from their and your dick should start thinking for you, I hope shes smol so you can really throw her around.

This is half-feels half-seeking advice. I accidentally bought a replica bag off the LSE sales page, and it took me five months to realize. This evening I compared it to the legit bag I already owned in a different color, and the damn brand name is missing from the front. This type of bag would fall under a grey area similar to replica shoes, and looking back on the sales post the seller never actually claimed it was from the original brand. Is it worth bringing it up with the mods? If not I'm content with just moping around for the rest of the day.

A couple of years ago I ordered a vibrator online and my room mate was the first one to grab the package and bring it inside for me. I guess he looked at the label and was curious as to why it was marked "novelty toy". I just told him it was one of my anime figures. Pretty sure he knew, though.

I've never used the American hitachi one, only familiar with the EMW myself and I love it.
Why do you prefer the doxy over the hitachi?
>>
>>9715649
The hitachi has the hard plastic head and has a very sharp vibration, and scroll wheels are too easy to knock off and ruin an orgasm imo
The doxy has a soft head, a deep rumbling type of vibration that doesn't make your clit after a while and buttons , also a climbing intensity setting
>>
>>9715635
I'm going more for "sad and disappointed" and less "constipated"

I didn't know the original hitachi was so sucky in comparison to the European version.

How do I do this
Every time I think a grill is giving me some sort of sign I always tell myself "don't be that guy, she's just being nice to you"
>>
>>9715713
As basic as it sounds, read guides/watch videos online on flirtation/signals that women give if they're interested etc.
Flirting is totally a skill you can practice, no one's perfect at it from the beginning.
If you're unsure about whether a girl is interested or not try to lightly test the waters, make some remarks that you could play of as jokes and such.
Like the other anon said try some light body contact, see how she reacts.
"That guy" usually implies just being way too forceful/not being able to read and interpret a girl's body language. You can usually tell quite easily if someone feels uncomfortable or not, just don't keep pushing anything if you can tell that she feels awkward or tries to change the topic or such.

I’m so irked. I found someone selling OTKs I’ve been searching for, for YEARS and she said she’d sell them to me.

It’s been over a month since messaging about an invoice and left on read. Apparently other people have also been having a hard time getting ahold of this seller.

It’s just so frustrating. Why bother even selling stuff if you’re not going to communicate with your buyers?

>myth.
The simple anatomy of it is the more nerve firing that happens because of a certain stimulus the less it is going to fire, it essentially becomes used to seeing that sensation there. This means it will not respond to any type of touch or pressure except that certain stimulus. I mean if you want to become a vibrator addict go ahead but don't say things are a myth because you don't understand how your body works.

Owch. They meant well anon, but just get the dress yourself like the other anon said and swap them out. If they only know the basics then they probably wont be able to tell you made the swap. I think it's nice that they paid attention to what you'd been saying and wanted to get a gift you would really enjoy, so just grit your teeth for now and let them have it. They'd probably be mortified if they knew the truth.

Poor dude? For pleasuring his gf with a vibrator and his fingers? Do you think that just because a guy does that he's never ever able to also put his dick in her?
I don't understand what you were trying to imply
>>
>>9715834
Girls don't see a vibrator as a replacement for their boyfriend's dick though, it's just a toy that can make sex more fun and exciting, for both partners.
>>
>>9715834

As I said, poor guy
>>
>>9715805
M8 nobody's using a vibrator 24/7, it's not going to make your nerve endings go dead. It's just a different type of stimulation, it's easier than getting finger cramp but it's never affected my ability to get off other ways.

>>9715811
Why can't you do both?
>>
>>9715842
Man I feel bad for your girlfriend if you're that intimidated by a mere vibrator.
Using a vibrator to get her off is like blindfolding her or tying her up or something, it's just an added sensation and factor for her to enjoy.
A girl still wants to be embraced, massaged, kissed and 'loved', do you really think that most women would choose a vibrator over making love to their own boyfriend?
>>
>>9715798
You take that back.
>>
>>9715848
>do you really think that most women would choose a vibrator over making love to their own boyfriend?
They certainly choose it over making love to me
>>
>>9715857
You should read through the product reviews on sex toy sites sometimes, there's enough men talking about how they got vibrators for their wives/girlfriends because they personally wanted to use them while having sex.
>>

My boyfriend has bought me three separate vibrators and a dildo and I don’t like any of them. I’m pretty sure he’s got a fourth one in the mail for Christmas. He seems to think he’s doing me a favour but I’d be much happier if he bought me some secondhand brand. I just don’t enjoy sex toys...
>>
>>9715880
Well have you tried talking with him about it?
>>
>>9715871
Good on them, not every guy is on that camp, hell some guys are firmly planted on camp
>this is bullshit, I'm outta here
Look all I'm saying is please have an honest heart-to-heart with your bf, make sure he's okay with everything, and make sure he isn't just telling you what you want to hear
>>
>>9715886
No I understand, my ex-bf was really opposed to vibrators and actually talked me out of ever using sextoys.
My current boyfriend is the one who actually got me my first vibrator because he just finds it really hot to see me pleasure myself with it, so he's definitely into it.
I just wish that guys would be more confident about it, because for me a vibrator definitely doesn't compare to actually being fucked by my boyfriend.
>>
>>9715885
Yeah. He gets all his information about sex from the internet and his male friends so he’s convinced that I ought to love vibrators and is on a quest for The One that I’ll enjoy. I’ve told him several times that I don’t want a new one but he won’t listen. On the one hand it’s sweet, but on the other I’m annoyed that he won’t listen to me and keeps wasting money. It’s not like you can sell the things after you’ve used them.
>>
>>9715891
Have you tried explaining it to him with some kind of comparison he could relate to, like "You know how everyone seems to enjoy X but you just don't? That's how I feel about vibrators."
I mean if you've already straight up told him that while you appreciate his efforts, getting gifted some brand instead of vibrators would make you way happier there isn't much else to do I guess, just wait it out until he realizes that it doesn't seem to be your thing.
>>
>>9715891
Are there any sites in your country with good returns policies? At least then you can send it back if it doesn't work out. I know lovehoney in the UK does product returns, they recycle stuff if it's been used.

I feel you on not really being into vibrators, the sensation is odd and they just don't do that much for me. Bought a bunch when I left home and was really underwhelmed. At least my girlfriend likes them. If he's into the idea of using sex toys in the bedroom maybe you could compromise on something else, or buy something to use on him? sage for completely OT.

You sound like a very considerate and thoughtful guy.

The only thing that would make you "that guy" is if you refuse to back off, get offended, or take it out on her if you try to make a move and she declines. it sounds like she's really into you, though.

Just make sure you're safe about it and maybe try to get an idea of whether this is just a fuckbuddy thing or has the potential to become a relationship? Or what kind of relationship you want out of it? Not to be crass but it's usually best to consider these things before you stick your dick in someone.

S..same. Ever since he started seeing his gf we kinda fizzled out in conversation.

I guess in my case it was kind of my own fault, I had a lot of shit going on in my life and was really overwhelmed with the fact that I had developed feelings for him so it took me really long time to actually reply to his messages, and now that I finally managed to message him back it appears that he's gone or just doesn't want to talk anymore (which is understandable I suppose but still hurts...)

Don't give up guys! While it's true you have to accept the situation it's not impossible that the situation will change. I was in a relationship when I started to chat with a guy from imageboard about half a year go and we hit off so good it made me really think what I want from my life. I dropped contacts with him for two months and I got courage to leave my bad relationship and when I messaged him again we catched feels pretty quickly and now we are actually together, more happily than I could have ever imagined. It's fresh still of course but I wanted to share an example of how it can all end well for you gyus.

sell wigs! If they're worn sell them at a huge discount and they'll still make a sale. If you have pastel ones you could put them on ebay and market it as SUPER KAWAII LOLITA HARAJUKU WIG, and weebs will snap that up
>>
>>9717448
Sadly all natural colours, maybe I should sell them as a lot or something. I grew my hair really long so wearing wigs takes a lot of prep and is only worth it for fancy wigs on expensive occasions, but I still have a bunch of basic Bodyline/eBay wigs from back when I didn't know how to style short hair taking up space. Maybe a cosplayer would buy them.

I really wish I had a girlfriend but at 180lbs I'm too much of a hambeast to find another cute girl interested in j-fash. I've lost 10lbs so far but I'd still need to lose another 40 or 50 before I'm satisfied. At this weight I don't feel confident enough.

tfw i won an auction on LM and the seller hasnt reached out to me, it was a bidding war and i felt lucky to win until i realized its probably a dead auction. i watched this damn dress tick down the clock for 20 days... and the comments on the listing went unanswered for a long time so i knew something was off...

My ED shit is getting worse and I can’t bear to wear lolita or put effort in to my appearance anymore. I’m sad because I am quite active in the lolita community and people are always like “why don’t you wear lolita more often?” And I have no excuse for them. I feel like an impostor and a fake ita lolita at heart type now. I don’t want to leave lolita, I’m just waiting for the day I finally like my body and stop hurting myself again.
>>
>>9717690
This isn't something you wait for, anon, you have to take care of yourself. Please seek help.
>>
>>9717698
I know I should be getting help and it’s not normal, but that’s not how it works. I need to lose weight first.
>>
>>9717719
It's not just "not normal", you're sick. And I'm not saying that to insult you, EDs are illnesses, and you need help to heal. If you need to lose weight then you should see a dietitian, maybe even a personal trainer too, to help you plan your eating habits and exercise and make sure that you do it in a healthy way, but you absolutely should seek professional help about your ED on top of that.
And if people ask why you don't wear lolita anymore, you can tell them that you're dealing with some personal issues at the moment and leave it at that.
Please do this, anon, you'll feel so much better and you'll look so beautiful in your frills. Don't let your illness kill you, it's not worth it.

It’s been rocky with him for a while anyways, and I think this is the final straw. I was trying to last through this trip at least, since we’ve been planning it for a while, but I’m about to end things and book a flight home for tomorrow.

Big Christmas meet for my comm was a success and everyone was so sweet and welcoming. One of my friends even gave me a nice little gift. I'm so glad to have some solid friends in this new country, even if they all live hours away.

I think I've burned out. I get so irritable trying to organise meetups for my comm. I did one big meetup recently and since then I've just felt deflated, I had previously been scrambling around trying to plan another thing for next year, but now my enthusiasm has dropped to 0. I'd already looked at venues, pricing, tickets, possible guests, etc, and now I just can't bring myself to do any of it. I guess I feel discouraged because I mentioned it to some comm members and nobody really seemed interested. I was heartbroken because I thought it could be something really fun and there would be plenty of notice to take a day off work and stuff, but everyone just seemed confused and unenthusastic about having a big event where we could invite friends from other comms.

Idk if that's even the main reason I'm feeling down about it, though.

Yes. If she hasn't responded at all, please just stop contacting her.
>>
>>9717992
Message her at least 5-6 more times to make sure she didn't just miss your initial reply.
>>
>>9717992

Message her at least every five minutes to remind her you still are interested. If you slip out of her mind, that's the end for you. Let her know how interested you are and how much she means to you Hopefully she gets the message soon!

Speaking as a recovered anorexic, "I just need to lose weight first" is actually not how it works. Get help, anon. I promise you can be so much happier if you fight through this, but you have to make that choice for yourself, and I guarantee you that not choosing recovering is choosing to be even more miserable.

I finally got into lolita and jfash generally after a long time of pining after it. Now I know this sounds stupid but buying things stresses me out so much. I keep refreshing second hand shops and sales almost constantly, then never buying anything because nothing seems like a good enough deal/I can't justify spending money on it/what if it looks dreadful and I can't sell it and so on. Once I actually do buy something and get to wear it it makes me happy, but actually getting anything is such an anxious experience and I overthink it horribly. I have enough disposable income to be able to buy myself something if I really want it, but not enough that I can afford not to be careful with my money. I have no idea how I managed to turn something that brings me joy into such a chore

I'm really enjoying playing with colour in my coords right now - classic browns and creams, dusty florals, pastel colours, subtle prints. Half my wardrobe and over 90% of my everyday wearable pieces are black. It's a weird feel.

Have you ever joined a new cosplay group, and everything is fine and you really get along with them for a few months, and then suddenly all at once you start to hate their guts?

I have no idea why I feel this way. They haven't changed, and neither have I. Although, honestly, I guess our personalities are really different and we have no shared interests outside of the anime we cosplay from?
>>
>>9718314
I was mostly talking short term. I feel like I see a noticeable difference within just 2 weeks of being in a good or bad mood
>>
>>9718315
you probably never liked them, but were optimistic. Today your optimism ran out.
>>
>>9718358
I think you're right. It's easy to get excited about meeting new people when you don't know anything about them. And then, maybe you get to know them a little better and find out there's nothing there? Something like that. Just because a group of people really want to make friends w each other doesn't necessarily make them compatible, even if they're trying really hard. It just becomes another obligation

I honestly don't know because I've been depressed most of my life and can really tell now because of how my face looks. I basically neglected to ever look in the mirror much or anything, so I'm not sure about short term, but in the long term, yes, definitely.

i've felt the same many times. It happens.

Because I wanted to be polite about it

Why would faking it be obvious? I just act the same as if I actually came and then bailed.

It was retroactively great for my mental state of mind of "wow I still get laid" but also I really would have rather done so many other things instead

At least I managed to convince her to watch The Room, since I wanted to see it again
