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

Our board rules are simple:

• Thread content must be related to one of the categories covered in the list above. Off-topic threads and replies will be deleted.
• Singling people out maliciously is not tolerated and will result in a ban. 4chan is not your personal army.

Shit like this annoys me to no end.
"I want to buy my dream dress, but I need a payment plan and don't scalp it."

Same goes for gulls in the dream dress thread that won't buy a dress that was linked to them shortly after posting their dream dress (like if someone finds your dd months later your financial situation could've changed).
Girls who crossplay make characters. There's already a shortage if interesting male characters to cosplay, but for some reason most series that get popular with large male casts end up with all the characters cosplayed by women.

In addition the amount of asspats they get for doing it is pretty ridiculous

Old thread hit image limit >>10102923

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

the same way as for anyone. start with the basics. come back and ask again when you have mastered the nude look.
>How does makeup fit in ouji with men?
Make sure you get the man makeup, since the lady makeup will burn your man skin :/

In case this truly is a clueless male asking, I'll give a quick breakdown.

Most people just aren't born with perfect, flawless skin. Not including acne, most people have some redness in the wrong place, blotchy complexion, dark circles under their eyes, puffy eyes, "dirty", clogged pores, unattractively dry lips, scraggly eyebrows/unibrow etc etc.

- foundation helps to even out skintone (for redness or blotchyness)
- concealer is thicker and hides anything foundation is too sheer to hide (eg acne, scarring)
- dark circles undereye often needs a different concealer. Orange-tone for those with purple shadows, yellow tones for those with grey shadows
- puffy eyes can't be fixed by makeup, do a cold compress (cucumber, cold tea bags) to reduce them before you start
- none of the above will stay on very long, so primer or base is used beforehand to help the makeup "stick".
- similarly, setting spray to help makeup stay on longer
- "dirty" clogged pores also can't be fixed with makeup, exfoliate your face before you start
- dry lips need chapstick, if your lips are pale and sickly-looking, use a tinted lip product to give them some colour
- similarly, if you look pale and lifeless after putting on foundation, you need a little blush to bring back the colour

I've been thinking about this for a while but anyone here have an opinion on the quality and fit of this Fan+Friend shirt compared to the Atelier Boz?

That's kind of the point of babby's first coord, no one comes out of the womb clad like a GLB page.
Don't forget that VR has been lolita since before she was born
I think by potential anon means that she’s cute perhaps? and if the girl actually wore lolita it would suit her body type/face? At least that’s what I interpreted from it.
Potential = cute girl, duh
Don't post children.

It’s the season for proms, galas and weddings, so let’s have a special occasion lolita thread!
Have you worn lolita to an occasion like prom or a ball?
Did you wear lolita to your wedding, or do you want to?

Yes, I assume the same but fitting and exact fit aren’t the same. Plus you have to worry about tracking down a professional tailor that could handle altering a lolita garment. It just seems too much an unpredictable hassle to me personally but more power to anyone going that route and pulling it off. I can definitely see this being more ideal for someone having a small wedding or even one with just a few people present as there’s much less to worry about, so one can really focus on their dress turning out as planned.
Bridezillas obsessed with ’exact tailored fit’ like it's gonna really make soooo much difference in a dress you'll only wear once for a few hours and a dress that nobody actually gives that much of a shit about at all besides the bride herself.

But then I consider most of the over hyped wedding stuff a gross overspend for a one day flex that has fuck-all to do with the actual marriage that comes after.

Since you're replying to me. This particular MTO was ~$800 (actually under, but SS and shipping pushed it over).

The more important distinction is I actually like the MTO dress. And yes, I was sure it would fit before I bought it.
You can always do a second wedding ceremony anon, 10 year anniversary would be a good excuse to throw a party.
Eh, get some veil netting and sew tulle/chiffon flowers onto it in the shape of a heart. pretty easy job for someone like videnoir (just google her, she'll come right up. )

ahh good ol' classist gatekeeping. this is why our niche hobby stays niche
Yeah, THAT’S why our hobby is niche. Not because normies think ordering and wearing expensive dresses from Japan that look like historical Edwardian clothing is weird. It’s the pricey, nice meetups that drive people away.
Oh shit, accurate. I don't like this at all but damn. Accurate. They need to diaf.

[lolitas] can refuse to admit mops. In fact, successful subcultures always do create costly barriers to entry, to keep out the uncommitted.

Is it too late?
I'm not really against anything in this post though.

Some items are similar like classical doll/whytealeafe, but I feel like VM's bodices are little more high waisted or have a horizontal waist seam which looks a little less elegant

Some is more retro like that, but some do remind me of MM (pic related)
MM's designer used to work at VM before she made her own brand iirc. That would be weird if she came back on again.

Same. I went to Wondercon last year and the Anaheim Convention Center seemed so much bigger than LACC.
Hiki, that you? You said there was some crap about not being confirmed until the last second, right?
CWF shouldn't have attendance issues considering it capped pretty fast last year. Or at least, I wasn't able to get in.
No need to beg for an audience.
>basically right after Pokemon
Now I'm worried it'll be capped by the time I get there
CWF is on JW now so the room is bigger but the date for pushes to Thursday

So cute! Did you get that frame online?
Thanks! I found it by chance at a variety store, all the inexpensive white frames I've found online tend to veer towards a more minimalist/flat style and that didn't interest me so I snatched this one up immediately.
I feel the same. I like sort of bohemian and fairy kei and I find those aesthetics very conflicting. Any suggestions for this one?

Is he likely to lurk your instagram or facebook? you could wear the outfits, take fabulous fun looking pictures of you doing fun things in those outfits (even if you don't feel fun and have to fake it for the time being) and post that shit where he can see just how unaffected you are by the breakup.
If you've got like a hot relative or gay friend that he hasn't seen or met, get them to pose with you.

Does this have a black or darker colorway?
It's a comment she made in response to someone on COF, on a coord that she posted which was pretty questionable, and it sparked anons' suspicions that she might be into ddlg. Her coords and makeup have really improved since and she never made another comment like that again, so she's probably learned and moved on from that.

Why not use tape and eyelid glue in tandem?
Are there any good tutorials for white people on eye shape and how to use things like eyelid tape to manipulate it?
I'll give it a try this week!
i get called chinita/hapa cuz of my eyes lol, they aren’t epicanthic folds tho. why would you want them though, not saying they’re bad but do yall expect them to get bigger like ugu kawaii asian girls? cuz that’s mostly from circle lenses
from me personally-- my fucking fat fold literally push my eyelashes s.t. they point downwards. no amount of eyelash curling/mascara will fix this. Often any falsies i wear will be pushed downwards too. only exception is if the band is strong enough to lift the fat.

also from my experiences with wearing tape/glue, it makes my eyes look more awake instead of droopy.
