>tfw no sweet, eager newbie to guide on her way to become a gorgeous lolita
I've "mentored" a few newbies in the past and they've done very well, but they were either ungrateful (or just didn't thank me for the lengths I went for them) or ended up flouncing after they got involved in petty drama. Either way, they all cut ties with me eventually. I'd love to do it again but I've become tired and kind of jaded, and I mostly stick to my own these days.
I hope you three find a local lolita you can rely on. Please remember to appreciate her, when you do.
>>
My last relationship ended after 3 years because my fiance cheated on me.
Now I have a bf 10 years older and he's....significantly more mature? I don't want to sound like some starry eyed kid, but the age gap is really nice, he actually helps around the house, and cooks for me, and takes me dancing. He even loves my lolita clothes, and gives me plenty of reasons to go through the effort of putting on a coord. He even taught me to drive! The last guy said I wasn't able to drive, so I never learned...

To keep it card game related, he has a huge collection of magic, and he plays commander more than other forms.
I've been trying to get him into Force of Will, he's a huge weeb so I think anime mtg will really appeal to him.
>>
>>9909471
Op here, I would seriously be very much enamored and forever grateful if someone started mentoring me. I'm very shy and most people don't like me so anyone who has similar interests usually end up getting treated like royalty because of it. I think I'd honestly explode if someone asked to be my mentor, so I promise to love and cherish my (theoretical, future) mentor with all of my heart
>>
>>9909477
I was like "oh, watever" until you got to saying he's also a weeb. That is so cute, congrats on ur bf anon.

You're very cute, anon. You don't need to treat anyone like royalty though, it's uncomfortable and dehumanizing at best, and at worst might lead you to be easily manipulated and used. Remember to let your future mentor know that you appreciate her and what she does for you, but don't become a doormat.

I'm struggling to enjoy the fashion separately from my comm anymore and I don't know why. I have a pretty big closet and nice lolita friends but I feel like I've focused too much on the social side of the fashion recently. Maybe I've forgotten what made me love lolita in the first place. It wasn't the comm or the social side... So what was it? I don't know, but I feel a little lost and apathetic.

This is your opportunity to rediscover your roots, anon. When and how did you discover lolita? What makes you feel nostalgic, in relation to the fashion? Find what it is and wallow in it, it's a great way to reignite the spark.

Just found out the annoying little boy who stalks me at cons is actually an adult woman. Should I ask her out?
>>
>>9909599
My adorable weeby friend told me to read kamikaze girls and said that the book reminded her of me for some reason. I read it and loved it and then forgot about it for a while. Several years later I idly googled it and had a "Holy shit, THAT'S what Momoko's dresses are meant to look like?" moment. I found egl livejournal and then read Japan Ai, and my mum my first skirt from Clothing Drop. Back then, thinking of lolita gave me a happy dreamy feeling. I dreamed of having a comm and lolita friends, like the girls on LJ. But I guess now that I have everything I want, there isn't much more to long for other than >tfw no lolita gf
All I can do is be scared that I might lose it all.
>>
>>9909677
Cause his berries got squished.
>>
>>9909686
You won't lose it, promise. In fact, finding some time for yourself, apart from your comm, will likely help you regain that love you had for the fashion regardless of the social aspects that you associate with it.

When was the last time you read Kamikaze Girls? When was the last time you watched the movie? And what's your personal style like compared to the style of lolita that you idolized when you discovered it vs. the style you wear now?

>>9909699
I hope you're right. Thanks, anon. You're very kind and I really appreciate it.

I haven't read Kamikaze Girls for a few years, my lolita book that I keep rereading recently is So Pretty/Very Rotten. But that book makes me a little sad because I relate to Tia too much, so I think I'll put it away and reread Kamikaze Girls instead. I have seen the movie recently, at least. I used to idolise Momoko, Xelyna, Duplica, Octavekitten, Faunkegin, Lauran and a few other girls from LJ. A wide mix of styles but my style is fairly colourful classic with a bit of gothic. I think young me would be proud, haha. Thinking of how happy she'd be makes me feel a bit better desu
>>
>>9909749
I relate to you a lot, to be honest, minus the worry about potentially losing the love for the fashion; I'm not a lonelita but I don't see my comm often and wear the fashion daily so I do feel like one, and after being into the fashion for about a decade without once feeling like the fashion is losing its magic to me, I think that getting in touch with what makes you happy about lolita will be good for you.
As a side note, I do want to add that sometimes you just stop loving things that you loved for a long time, and that's okay. People change and grow and you won't always like the same things, after all. I'm not saying you should drop lolita immediately if it doesn't make you happy anymore, but try not to worry about it so much because sometimes things change and that's okay.

Anyway, other than getting in touch with your roots (consuming nostalgic media helps a lot with this btw), I'd suggest trying something new with the fashion: If you don't wear it casually, try to do that when you have free time. If your style is fairly consistent, try introducing another style or at least another color into your wardrobe - You can start by just photoshopping your existing coord pics into different colors to see what else might suit you, or maybe play around with makeup or a new hairstyle. Trying on new coords at home to channel some creativity is fun and can help you find something new that you like, it's another way to find that spark of magic.

I was going to travel to a con with my friend by car. Now I'm a noob at driving, only drive to work through town. Now she tells me I can drive for half the ride, or her mom brings and picks us up for twice the price plus added to option 1 are the parking costs which are 40 dollars a weekend. Other option is the train, 26 for back and forth and ofc no parking, but I don't want to ditch my friend...

I just ask people for their pictures then I leave. They're there to enjoy themselves after all, and I'm 100% in belief that if I try to talk to people further like how the con is going or about what they're cosplaying, I'd be creeping them out or bothering them.
Why? This scene is full of creeps. And even then, you always hear it on the daily about how men are evil and to watch out for certain men and how we're all fucked up. I want to say this whole thing has completely damaged my (nonexistent) self confidence even further because I absolutely do not want to be seen as a creep, but I wouldn't be the victim here.
Part of me is yelling at me in a deafening voice that I deserve this, and a smaller part of me that refuses to die says no, you just want to befriend people and maybe even find a partner just like anyone else. I know for a damn fact that I'm not entitled to anyone's time and definitely not their affection yet this is at odds with the part of me that DOES still want it. How do I kill that part?

Cosplaying is fun.

Remember you're only creepy if you're ugly. If you're good looking you're charming and confident.
>>
>>9910247
Honestly I think that most people can tell the difference between someone who is shy and nervous compared to a creep, especially women. Most people who cosplay probably want to talk about it, or they wouldn't go to cons, so ask a few questions, don't ask overly personal questions.
>>
>>9910247
> I'm 100% in belief that if I try to talk to people further like how the con is going or about what they're cosplaying, I'd be creeping them out or bothering them.
Are you wearing a costume? I found that it's a lot easier to socialize with people at cons when you're wearing a costume. This puts other people at ease because they know that both of you have common interests and you're not just some thirsty normie that wandered in off the streets.

>you always hear it on the daily about how men are evil and to watch out for certain men and how we're all fucked up. I want to say this whole thing has completely damaged my (nonexistent) self confidence

>2, there's another problem: 90% of the time when there are creeps around, the victim usually can't bring themselves to tell them off, they're too scared to, thus, if I crept someone out, they'd be too scared to tell me and I'd be none the wiser

>>9910287
>Are you wearing a costume?
I am, yes. I usually look for cosplayers who are also cosplaying from the same game or anime as me to take their picture, since I'd recognize their character.

>Okay man, you need to lay off the feminist stuff because it is seriously fucking you up.
You might be right. It's hard to avoid 'cause I follow cosplayers on social media but some would often post about this kinda stuff. I try not to pay it much mind 'cause I want to follow them for their work but like... it's not coming from nowhere. Like I'm kind of convinced that if you're a girl, and you cosplay, there's a 100% chance that you've dealt with a creep at a con.

I just... might sound paranoid as hell, but I'm just so terrified that I'd ever be seen like that, and despite this, I still want friends. Despite this, and this one's the real worry here, I still want compansionship as well.

There is almost no interaction outside of meetup planning that happens on the page despite it having so many members, so I'm not really sure if I should be just going to a meetup randomly without introducing myself. It's really intimidating because the atmosphere of it is really different from my last comm.
>tfw lonelita forever

>>9910289
That's only half true. But seriously, looks have a causative effect on percieved personality.

If you look better people are more willing to overlook your flaws, give sympathy, make excuses for you and attribute positive characteristics to neutral actions. I say this as a guy who went from being 6'1" 110lbs scary skellington, pale as snow who didn't really bother with how I looked to being 195lbs after going to gym, got a tan and I take much more care of how I look.

I am literally the same autistic mute retard who sits in his room watching anime all day but people are way more friendly to me than before. Because before it was"Oh anon is so weird, he doesn't ever talk and he likes japanese cartoons. That's kinda creepy. Does he think he's special or something?" And now it's "Oh anon is so quiet. He must just be shy. He likes japanese cartoons? That's so cool and different." It's not a bad thing, it's just that people like pretty people.

Depends on how attractive you are. If you're literally someone's 10/10 nothing you could do to them would be considered creepy. There's an inverse relationship between relative attractiveness and relative creepiness.

I'm only this way with girls who show romantic interest or I have romantic interest in (which is rare anyway). Girls I have no romantic interest in or have no (known) romantic interest in me I treat the same as I do men, maybe I'm a little more polite and softer around them but they don't scare me.
>>
>>9910301
It's more that people who usually spout the "attractiveness is the only thing that matters", tend to forget that people can sense the entitlement and anger behind that sentiment. I probably am a moron btw , I never said I denied that attractive people are treated differently and it's pretty common incel rhetoric.
>>
>>9910299
I see what you're saying and I do agree to a certain point, but I would disagree with you thinking that your personality hasn't changed after dramatically changing your appearance, not only does it take loads of work and thus changing how you think about yourself and how you think about overcoming challenges, so you probably put out a much different vibe than before even if you don't realize it, but I could be wrong.

There's some histrionic (for lack of a better word)cunt who lurks these threads, she keeps bringing up her "rape" by her first boyfriend.

Try a nasal steroid. You need to do it every day because it takes 2-3 days for the steroids to kick in, but you'll feel much better after a week. In my country they're over the counter so you don't have to go through a doctor.

Loratadine is fine- but if you're not seeing results from it I would recommend a nasal steroid.

This one cosplayer posted the most whiney post I've seen in a while.
It basically was along the lines of how she hates another cosplayer because she thinks that cosplayer is better than her and she declared herself the first person to cosplay another character.

Its was pretty funny but also annoying that people were giving her "support"
Like oh yeah, that sucks you hate another cosplayer because they decided to cosplay a character you like. Boohoo for you ):

That’s somewhere people cheap out too but in blouses and shoes, but it’s also sometimes fit rather than lack of funds. If they wear brand accessories that kind of takes up that slack. I don’t wear plastic brand things but I wear the heck out of head accessories and the metal jewelry. I’ll never fit a pair of brand shoes.

If I'm buying plastic jewelry I'm thrifting it, finding it in kids stores, or I'm buying qpot/homemade before I spend anything on AP. Most of those don't even LOOK that nice. The necklaces are too large, chunky and almost sign like. Only a few of the rings I can look at and think it's cute, but most of them are like"wow I can't wear this with 90% of my dresses" desu the only thing I'd buy is maybe bracelets but that's only because that's harder to find specifically for lolita coords

We are basically exact opposites when it comes to our perspectives on lolita jewelry it seems. Basically the one type of item, other than I guess a petticoat, I have never deliberately purchased from AP would be their bracelets. I like my brand wristcuffs and offbrand bracelets.

I actually have a bit of a problem when it comes to AP necklaces and rings, currently I'm hovering at about 20 of each.

Probably not, but with that frame there are lots of regular cosplays you can wear that others can’t. Unless a crossplay is fabulous, it’s trash, I’m not sure why guys do them unless they are into cross dressing already and just using it as their cover to cross dress in public.

My partner gets ingrown hairs on the back of his neck after haircuts. Popping them is like popping bubble wrap. I secretly hope he gets them more frequently.

They are by your measurements for real ones, and the seams have to be midline in the back and vertical everywhere else so yep size matters.
If it’s just weeb cosplay shit, it’s probably ok, but people shouldn’t buy real kimono until they can learn the sizing.

I do this for my SO too. Secretly it grosses me out but I never let it show. If I het a pimple I’m grossed out too.
I also got him a loofah and better bath soap and a ‘cooling toner’ to use on his trouble areas so he gets them less frequently. (Witch hazel with a few drops of tea tree and oregano oil.)
Also trimming the ear hairs. Which is more funny but still.

One of the Instagram accounts I follow has been posting Asherbee-tier sfx makeup lately. I want to post them in the bad makeup thread, but I can’t bring myself to. They’ve never really done anything wrong?

I have a crush on this guy I'm friends with, but I have a boyfriend. We haven't done anything, but we're very drawn to each other. It was irresponsible to let things get to this point. Fuck. I don't understand myself. I love my boyfriend, and yet I'm basically betraying him.
I used a pet name I only ever use with my bf with this guy a couple of days ago. It just fucking slipped out, and it all felt so natural and right.
I used to hate cheaters because I thought they were all soulless, manipulative freaks who didn't care for their partners and wasted their time, but if this is how they all feel…I don't know. I wish it were the case that I didn't care, because then I'd just be able to break things off with one or the other, or play them both, no fucks given. Instead, somehow, I just have feelings for them both. I love my boyfriend, but the feelings I'm getting for this guy are very much there too. I can't deny it, and it scares me. Shouldn't one diminish the other? Has anyone else been through this? Am I poly or something?
>>
>>9911956
Well maybe you should explore the idea of polyamory or open relationships, because it IS possible to have feelings for more than one person. I'd tone back on seeing your friend until you talk to your boyfriend about your boundaries and what he would want out of it. If you want that stuff to work though you need a lot of communication and trust

And so on and so forth, all the weirdass ideas that some normies get when they see jfash. It's just not worth the hassle.

I'd just say something like "Look, I'm sorry you live under a rock, but it's actually part of a fashion style. I have no qualms with showing skin, this just looks better to me". I wouldn't elaborate on what fashion exactly, but if she demanded to know more, I'd cherrypick some more normie-friendly larme pictures to shut her up. If she tried the "They look like toddlers" thing anyway, fire back with "What? So babies wear lipstick to you? I don't even want to know what kind of creepy child pageant stuff must run through your mind on a daily basis. I swear, you're so fashion illiterate. Even Forever 21 has stuff like this nowadays".
Social shaming works on normies.
>>
>>9911956
you can have feelings for both of them, but actually taking action and telling him how you feel, flirt with him, or kiss him, or having sex with him is much worse. Feelings come and go.

Just so you know, no one likes new lolitas, gf or not. You guys are always too dense and unappreciative of advice, rarely listen, love cheap tacky stuff and think lolita is something it's not.

You should instead aim to be the slightly intimidating all knowing lolita with an amazing wardrobe, who graces people with her presence.
>>
>>9909498
>most people don't like me
>it's also hard for anyone to handle being around me

Sounds like you should really address those things first. Why would anyone want to mentor someone that is not only too lazy to get good at the fashion themselves, but is also unbearably annoying and not good to be around?

You should at least try and develop some good traits that will make people want to be around you first.

I own a bunch of plastic AP jewelry no the quality is not better.

A lot of people confuse intricate beautiful design for quality. AP has better design and they go the extra mile with adding small details, but plastic is plastic. It will still break the same way, and also will get unglued from the base the same way, and need to be repaired.

For example, pic related has multiple plastic layers to add depdth, painted details and rhinestones. It's beautiful, but it will come off the base as easily as an etsy or taobao ring would. It is not more resistant plastic.

Yeah I guess design does add to the quality of the piece you're correct, but it's not everything. A lot of other resin pieces have gorgeous design and are cheaper. It's just that a lot of people act like AP plastic is somehow holier, it's brand therefore "quality" but plastic is plastic. It's miles closer to etsy and claire's quality than to some actual quality jewelry.

>is 25 too old to get into cosplay?

No. Anime conventions is usually younger crowd aged 15-25 while the comic conventions are usually millennial aged 25-35. I'm 30, I have a very successful career, I make costumes and I don't ever feel that I am too old to be out of place.

Man I am having some shit luck with the mail. Never had a package lost or arrive more than a day or two late before. Guess I'm taking a break from online shopping for a while. I just hope the two lolita-related items are able to come home.

I was accepted to teach English in Japan!! Haven’t been placed officially yet but I researched the city closest to where they wanna place me and there are lolita and jfash stores galore!
But it’s a sad feel because I want to talk to my friend about it but they applied too and didn’t make it and was really upset about it. I supported them the whole way and told them I was sure they would get it but....I was wrong
>>
>>9912335
Dream nigger. Could you tell me more about what you studied and the application process? Why do you think you got in over your friend?

Vanguard has one of the worst TCG communities, so that's stopped me from getting into it.

I applied to AEON, I sent my app (which is a brief online form and an essay) out in April, had a 15 min Skype interview in May, and had a grueling in person group interview/lecture session/teaching demo/grammar and spelling quiz/private interview last weekend. They got back to me super fast at every step. I prepared my ass off for everything (researching common interview questions, studying grammar and spelling, getting rec letters even though they aren’t required) because I’d applied to JET before, interviewed, and missed it :(
I don’t want to give any info about my friend, things feel weird enough between us right now/they are upset enough without me talking in depth about their situation to strangers, sorry bud.
My advice is to read up on what the company is looking for and emulate it from every pore in every contact you have with them. With AEON if you fail you can always reapply within a few months too.
>>
>>9912359
Oh and I have a bachelors in Japanese but idk if they really care. You have to speak in English all the time at their schools. They also have their own methods for teaching so previous teaching experience doesn’t make you a shoe in.

A friend I know from a Love Live! cosplay group is being abused by her bf. He used to be nice, but when he got a job promotion, his mood changed and has vented his frustrations on his gf. A compromise is not going to work and therapy is far too gone. They need to split. What can I do to help my friend?
>>
>>9912415
Be there for her. Leaving isn’t easy especially when there was good memories before the abuse occurred. Make it clear you do not condone his actions and that you know she doesn’t deserve to be treated this way but don’t judge her for staying, or at least don’t let it show. Just remind her what real love and support is like and that she doesn’t need to get it from an S.o. Also help her get together an emergency bag if she needs to gtfo from him in a jiffy, and offer to be a place for her to stay if they do break up and she needs support

I understand the appeal if someone wants a photo with their favourite character, but the normies who put arms around absolutely skeeve me out. They probably want the photos to show off an be like 'hey, these dressed up ladies/dudes let me touch them, amazing' which is pretty pathetic. When someone tries I now just flick the arm away and politely tell them no.
>>
>>9912539
NAYRT but I need to start doing that arm flicking thing because that shit skeeves me out too.
One time I complained on Zuccbook about how I posed for a photo with a guy, and he got really close and put his arm around my lower waist and rested his hand on my hip/thigh and it made me super uncomfortable. And I had some normie dude argue with me saying that if I agree to take a picture with someone I’m agreeing to be touched, and if I don’t want attention I shouldn’t cosplay popular characters.
Gross asses...

I miss the stuff that stores like Claire’s, Icing, and Forever 21 had in 2011-ish. They used to have a bunch of super pretty lacy and floral, socks, shoes and accessories. I used to get a lot of stuff for himekaji there. But now I feel like those stores are catering more to Instagram trends and confetti club shit.
>>
>>9912537
They'll gradually reduce it to the original price of the previous listing, to make it look like it's a catch or some shit. Japanese scalpers do this all the time, especially the usual Moitie resellers. Yes, I'm salty too.

I don't know what I should feel, it kinda makes me happy, if she would have really point towards me, but I doubt she meant me, and either way, she was singing to the whole audience, so I am just another person

I have a slight androphobia and dislike majority of the guys in my social circle. I want to share cosplay and lolita experiences with fellow women, to become better friends with them, but these guys always need to butt in and it always kind of ruins my enjoyment. Especially when most of these guys are single men who want a girlfriend.

Recently there was a cosplay picnic, I thought only women are coming so I was very excited. Turned out this guy who doesn't even cosplay was there too, it was so obvious he's there to get a girlfriend and it really pissed me off so I left earlier than I planned to.

I'm fine with male photographers in events because they have a purpose to be there but guys who are there just to get a chance to talk to girls need to fuck off. I just can't talk about this openly.
>>
>>9912685

ok, I am gonna stay away from women in the future

>>
>>9912685
There are men that butt in on lolita comms? I know not all of them are women-only like mine but I thought men are a minority in lolita in general. The ones that are into it to find a girlfriend are very obvious and tend to get the boot eventually, too.

>>9912686
Or maybe don't go to social events for a specific hobby when you don't participate in it, for the sole purpose of finding a girlfriend.
>>
>>9912690
I don't know about other comms, it's just my "circle" in general. We make plans, some guy asks if it's okay he comes too and I'm not sure if other girls are just being too polite or if they genuinely want them there but they say it's okay. I wish I had courage to talk about this issue.
>>
>>9912692
Does this guy actually wear lolita or ouji? Or does he just tag along in casual clothes? I hope it's the former at least otherwise it's bizarre that your comm would allow it at all.
>>
>>9912698
Just a casual nerd, no interest in any kind of fashion. Lot of girls in my comm play vidya or watch anime so they share common interests with these guys, which is why they're friends.
>>
>>9912692
If he isn't a boyfriend or friend of someone or dress lolita or related style, what is he even doing in your comm group?
>>
>>9912690
nah, better I give up on girls general, they aren't interested in me anyway
>>
>>9912700
Why is he in your comm then? Why is he allowed at meets? To hell with being polite and having whatever other common interest with these fucks, lolita meets are for lolitas and oujis not for rando nomies. Your comm sounds like a mess.
>>
>>9912692
Speak to the mods. I'm sure we all have friends who think it will be fun to 'hang out with lolitas' but we don't let fthrm ninto the community and come to our meets. Someone needs to (kindly) just explain to him that the meets are specifically for those who wear the fashion, that they are not just casual 'all friends' meet ups.

Guys can have their own meetups

>>9912709

>Guys try to enjoy their hobbies
Anon has specified that these guys don't even participate in these hobbies and show up to meetups to find a qt gf as if they're events open to the public like fucking conventions.
>>
>>9912702
Because this is a fantasy to hate men.
>>
>>9912685
While the guy who doesn't even cosplay shouldn't have been welcome unless he's trying to get into displaying and just has not yet, why would you expect a general cosplay meet to be women only?
Also if you only want to hang out with other women, you can make a meet of your own and just invite women but you shouldn't expect people to exclude male cosplayers. In lolita it is slightly more accepted still to be women only but what about ouji and brolitas? Can't you just be polite and not really talk to the males after saying hi to everyone? I don't like most males either but I just don't speak much to them.
>>
>>9912685
God same. I don’t actually dislike men as a group and most of my non-lolita friends are dudes, but the guys who attend lolita meetups in the same shitty cosplay or thrifted “ouji” or even outright normie clothes just because they’re trying to pick up girls are so fucking pathetic and annoying and I wish they’d all fuck off. The worst part is that our mods are overly concerned with appearing tolerant and accepting and god forbid you hurt a man’s feelings by expecting him to improve or even just asking him to wear fashion to a fashion meetup.
>>
>>9912723
Don't hate men. I just hate the type of nerdy guys who orbiter the girls in my comm.

>why would you expect a general cosplay meet to be women only?
Yes, this is my personal wish. I know it's not fair, but it's just what I secretly want. Like I said I'm fine with photographers or other male cosplayers but there's very few of them. Don't know about brolitas or male oujis because I have never met any. I just don't trust these guys because obviously they wouldn't be talking about lolita/cosplay if there was guys only, they're there only because they want to talk to girls.

>Can't you just be polite and not really talk to the males after saying hi to everyone?
This is exactly what I do, I'm very unresponsive with them when they try to have a discussion with me. It just bothers me that I need to do this with some boring-ass guy.
>>
>>9912727
>our mods are overly concerned with appearing tolerant and accepting

It's normal to fall for other people. I see a lot of young people fall intro this trap of feeling they're suddenly despicable for getting feelings for others while in a monotonous relationship. Truth is, we biologically aren't made for just one mate, we have the instinct to mix our genes with as many compatible mates as possible. It's worked well for us as a species before we started getting more civilized.

It doesn't make you a bad person. Just learn self control and it can actually strengthen your relationship. Keep in mind that crushes are often temporary sunshine and rainbows, so really consider if your friend is actually someone you could potentially love more than your current partner, but do so with the fact that you're probably over glorifying them in mind. Everyone will experience what you're feeling at some point of any long term serious relationship. It is normal but not often discussed because people find it taboo.

Tl;Dr - Relax, do some soul searching, and stop beating yourself up. If you do like your friend more, end your relationship properly before making the plunge.

If they give you any shit just tell them that they're rabid anti homosexual exclusionary feminists. That should get them to turn tail based on LGBTQ rights. Be prepared to fight for homosexual rights if they really do hate homosexuals based on rabid SJW sentiments closing intersectionality against male homosexuals which is entirely possible.

>>9912775
>>9912783
Except that LGBTQ rights are only rights when it comes to fighting for and obtaining equality in situations where actual rights like job equality are at stake and not just swaying peoples personal preferences? This is where people get confused. There can be a lot of dislike for something and it has nothing to do with someone's rights.

Plus lolicon and shotacon cosplay is already banned in many conventions.
>>
>>9912793
So you're a homosexual exclusionary feminist then? You should feel ashamed as male homosexual were the spearpoint for you to get the rights that you take for granted. Now that they're accepted you cast them out as not being "different" enough to be the banner bearers they always have been. You make me sick.
>>
>>9912797
Word salad just to argue for/against preference doesn't change the fact that throwing a fit because a shotacon cosplay is not accepted is bogus. It has absolutely nothing to do with homosexual rights and everything to do with the pedophilia. It would absolutely not matter what the genders or sexualities were so that pretty much explains it.
>>
tfw on a no-buy, but so many big meetups occur in the summer.

I don't even need a new dress, but having more stuff to pad my wardrobe to change it up, especially for the hot weather would be nice.

>>9912606
Same. It was a great way to pad ones wardrobe and have something cute to wear outside of lolita. I wish I hadn't missed out on the retro/mod inspired dresses with the bold colors and peterpan collars. I was hoping they'd make a comeback every fall at least.
I wish those girlier styles were considered a staple look instead of a trend to die out in a season.

Kinda surprising that currently in Japan, Forever21 isn't selling larme styled stuff when it's all over the place in other department stores. It's more of less the same selection in North America.
>>
>>9912804
Word salad is an ad hominem. it means you didn't understand what I was saying when you know exactly what I was saying which is dishonest at best and obtusely deceptive at worst. Instead of fighting for homosexual rights you happen to take a stance on whether or not they're appropriate enough to make you feel good about it. These are homosexual rights and you are being belligerant against them based on preconceived notions of heteronormativity.
>>
>>9912686
If you are going to actually cosplay or wear jfashion, then I think coming to 1-2 open meeets for cosplay or jfsshion first is perfectly acceptable, but most people get their cosplay or fashion outfits sorted out and aren't just normals wanting to hang around. These kinds of meets are specifically for people actively practicing these hobbies, not just social free-for-alls so that's why it's weird to have some casual show up and hang around if they don't actually participate in the hobby.
>>
>>9912810
If you take the gender aspects out and the premise is still completely wrong, (m/f, f/f or m/m pedophelia are not accepted in any case) then arguing about any sexual rights at all is a moot point. You can add all the inflammatory words or accusations you like here and the simple statement, "because pedophelia is wrong" breaks your argument and makes the actual point.

Because an 18 year old or plus cosplaying as Pico is objectively pedophilia is retarded. You're retarded. If someone were dressing up their kid as Pico it would be a different story but you are so rigid about age limits that you have lost the forest for the trees, Just admit that you are a bigot against homosexual rights and be done with it. You are a bigot.

Now, while I do think one can have cosplay as a hobby even when they don't do it personally, these people are not like this. You can be interested in cosplay in the form of photographing or crafts, but if your biggest goal in this hobby is to find a girlfriend then I just can't respect you.
>>

>>9912832
They said two conflicting statements. That they're fine with men but that they also want men out of their hobbies and meets. Those people had a reason to be there and no one else had an issue so it's clear anon just had an issue with it alone.
>>
>>9912820
I would avoid it and find something similar looking that is not so controversial or choose another anime. Cross play is generally ok but the tone is usually not blatantly sexual at all, check the cross play thread to find out more or ask about more characters if that's your thing but the pedophilia kin BnP is the issue.

>>9912819
Sorry but a cosplay from a manga and anime depicting pedophilia is viewed as promoting it. Many cons wont even allow it and as they are private enterprises, that's their right to exclude it with no repercussions (if you were interested in actual rights).
But since you are a troll, of course that's not going to matter either. I'm not arguing further here for your sake but for the sake of those who read things like your twattle and are afraid to just stand up to it like the bogeyman it is.

And we all know that when someone resorts to name calling ableist slurs when putting down someone (for so called 'disrespect' in favor of blindly promoting their agenda) is a hypocritical twat-waffle so you just lost your own argument.
>>
>>9912839
>Those people had a reason to be there and no one else had an issue so it's clear anon just had an issue with it alone.
And this is exactly why I'm venting this out anonymously instead in public. Since no one else seems to find the presence of gamer/nerd men in normie clothing bothersome and annoying, I just need to deal with it.
>>
>>9912820
There is a difference between wishing to cosplay and actually doing it. How many meetings of a hobby would you go to before actually participating if it was another hobby? That's the issue. Nothing is stopping you from starting a cosplay and joining in a cosplay group. But if you are just going to sit around and think on it and then try to hang around with cosplayers, they may not like that. Would you go to say, card game meets and not get a deck? Or go to a biking meet with no bike? No. It's the same.
>>
>>9912841
We've already proven that you are willing and most able to use ad hominem to further your agenda, As you did multiple times in this post. It is plain to see you have nothing of substance to bring to the argument just more: "troll", "pedophillia", and "twattle" that your argument is. It's a debasement. Also how am I being ableist? I think you're reaching for something that isn't there once again. In the end you are a bigot and nothing you can say can change that. Merry roads to you, bigot.

Uses the word retard twice.
B-b-but not ableist.
The substance is that you can't just excuse promoting pedophilic content under the blanket of homophobia. Even NAMBLA (the man-boy love association) doesn't get away with it.
Because it's bogus.
They also try to call 'homophobia' to push their agenda and guess what? It doesn't work for them either. They get denounced by everyone gay and straight alike as scum.
Because pedophilia.

>>
>>9912855
Nayrt but in lolita meets, we do have that issue, and it's discussed quite a bit. There are girls who are some kind of lolita at heart but don't wear the fashion and hang about and it's an issuer

Anon said she did not have a real problem if the guys are actually cosplayers (despite her preference) so I don't see how that's unfair or hypocrisy.

If you are attempting to beat someone down for their alleged intolerance and you yourself use another type of slur, it's pretty damaging to your overall credibility.

Of course alpha / beta is real. It's a gross simplification for communication purposes, but there is no doubt that men organize themselves into hierarchies with people on the top and people on the bottom.

>Truth is, we biologically aren't made for just one mate, we have the instinct to mix our genes with as many compatible mates as possible

This is totally incorrect. Humans in their most basic level form harem structures where a small number of high value men mate with a large number of women. Like the 20/80 rule. This is kind of what we're seeing with tinder culture. The top 20% of guys get 80% of women but the other 80% of guys have to fight for that bottom 20% of females. For a woman it's enormously dangerous to be breeding with a lot of partners because pregnancy is an incredibly dangerous process and there is little reason why a male mate should protect and provide for a female partner if she is not producing his offspring. Therefore it's not in her best interest to be mixing. For men it's a different story because breeding isn't a costly process.
