I love these cuts but I wish they had them in a more burgundy, less purple color.
Muuh SS posted this picture of the pink OP and it looks much nicer and more understated
Skirt and bonnet in sesame
Got the skirt in Leaf/Reef! Excited to be supporting VM again.
I can't believe I missed the reservation period. Wanted the apron in purple and grey. Hopefully there will be ready stock released and it's not sold out within 1 day like everything else I want from VM these days.

kumoricon 2019 is less than two months away, any anons going? what are your cosplay plans?

i guess you might be right
Yeah sorry not trying to be a downer but it's something I've been thinking about recently. I was at the con solo and wondered why I was watching anime there when I could go home and watch it. A lot of the fun stuff is social, though you could use it as an opportunity to try and watch something new or test a game.
yeah i didnt want to meet new people cause it would have been creepy since i was solo
Are you going tomorrow? We can chill if you are.
?? yes im going but i'd rather not hang out with people from here

I haven't seen a thread about Kimono in a while. Is there anyone else who collects them or is interested in them?
11 replies and 3 images omitted. Click here to view.
I like this girl's kitsuke, specifically the comfy stuff, and hakama. If anyone knows other instas that mix kimono with western style clothing, or do more modern kitsuke, let me know cause I love that stuff.

Not insta or twitter, but I found this blog pretty informative when doing research into how to wear kimono, she has a handful of youtube tutorials too.
I'll chip in with what I follow :

Statsia Matsumoto

She's a kimono fashion student in japan and she opened a shop. She post regularly pics of her shoots so you can see quite a bit of variety.

A kimono specialist that do youtube videos, in japanese.
I'm having trouble finding a kimono that speaks to me. I love vibrant colors but most are them are dull and mature. Anything that catches my eye is unwearable and vintage, should i give in and just buy a regular darker colored kimono?
Nah, there must be something for you somehow.

Can you give us an example of some colors schemes / combo you enjoy?
I bought a yukata when I went to Japan but I’ve never had the courage to wear it out.

Well there are lots of ftms that pass for women in the community lel.
It’s a hard call to say if someone would date a “passing trans lolita” any more than a non-passing. You will find people with all sorts of preferences. This is not a hobby to get into to find a partner tho.
I had a guy at work do this, but he did it because he thought it was "adorable" which made it 10x creepier. He would always say "good lolis don't" this and that and shit like that. Call that MF out.
Is that a bunch of wadded up grocery bags in a garbage bag petti or are you just really happy to see me
I'm not into aprons but if that was an overdress thing I'd be all over it.

How come female cosplay fans do not support make cosplayers like gi males support females?
53 replies and 2 images omitted. Click here to view.
Women will spend money towards men as long as they remain distant and unavailable, like K-Pop idols or better yet if they are the "character" rather than the actor himself. You have to keep women interested with layers of abstraction and the unknown if you want their money. It can't be direct e-thottery or prostitution like with men paying women.
i dont support anyone cause im not a cuck
how is his skin better than mine?! fuck there is no justice in the world.
I wouldn't even feel like a man if I was being "supported" like that. The only reason I'd even consider something like sexy cosplay is for the exhibitionism of it.
This is actually a really interesting point because I personally really liked the picture and thought that I'd love to see more stuff like that, but then again I'm solely attracted to girls. So for me the more traditional type of manly men are visually really off-putting, and even if I'm not attracted to more feminine guys romantically, I do like looking at them because they're cute. Not to mention the gap between male features and feminine clothing is god tier, and works the other way around too: cute girls in mens clothing is amazing, even though usually the clothes themselves or when worn by a traditionally good looking guy aren't even worth a look.
So I guess it really only boils down to different strokes for different folks. But I'm sure everyone can still admit that the picture in question had a lot more effort and thought put into it than just a guy with a wig and no shirt, which is what makes it stand out even if it's not your cup of tea.

I would like to stick rhinestones on see trought organza but I'm not sure was is the best way to keep it on, I probably will buy hot fix but I'm scared it will not be enought ( since the fabric is so slippery ) would E6000 throught the back of the fabric will help ? I want to do stripes so if I loose stones it's going to look terrible
Test it out on a scrap piece of fabric, but I've used hot glue on chiffon and it worked perfectly.
Anyone have any tips on how to stick the "sideburns" of the wig better to your head?? Theres kind of an awkward gap right now between the long sides of the wig and my face, not sure what would work best in this situation?
How does one add fur to the collar of a leather jacket? A red motorcycle jacket is easy enough to find but one with a fur collar is a whole other story.
I use fashion tape. Assist Cosplay also makes a glue specifically for this purpose, but I imagine sock glue would work as well

SYD OZCC is underway! Who do you think will win he champs? Who do you think should give up and let other cosplayers have a chance at the title?

better not be on the sunday, not running at gc nova
I know someone who did, it sounds like they're keen to do it again next year. I can't imagine why, since every other volunteer seems to never want to do a second run.
Anyone know the reason for the supanova date changes for melb and gc?

As someone who grew up in the 80s, you have a very small and limited idea of what people wore in the 80s if you think this isn't "80's enough"

I love Nile Perch, and most of my wardrobe consists of them, but I personally couldn't justify buying a lot of things new from them? For the usual secondhand price it's definitely worth it, though.
I can say that their clothes are super comfy with a little bit of stretch, and I love them for the precious details they put into the clothing that you might not notice from pictures online. They feel well made and like my AP stuff (in terms of quality), but I'm not an expert. If you care, it seems all my cutsews are 100% cotton? Hope that helped.

It's that time of the year again. Post and talk about your favorites.

Ank Rouge and Jamie will release their lucky bags at the 15th.
58 replies and 6 images omitted. Click here to view.
Thanks! I was hoping some would be available on the 2nd because I have other plans for the 1st. Interested in the ones with random items, not so much the set bags available online.

This pack was great. I still wear the pants and sweater.

I also got the 2018 pack because I thought the bag was cute, and there were major quality issues. I donated everything except the bag and one sweater. There was an OP in particular made of awful material.
Eatme’s bag is up and goes on sale the 27th. It comes with a coat, dress, and 3 mystery items (usually a set of some sort and another top). I got one a couple years ago and I was happy with it.

I don't remember Lodispotto selling out, so it's probably safe to wait.
This is quite cute and the coat is something different. Might consider this one!
When do the listen flavor lucky packs cone out? And is there a way to get alerts from TOM so I know when they’re going to go up? I looked around and even though I have an account I couldn’t see if there was a way
Swankiss used to be really cute and pastel and fluffy and now it just looks really boring and mainstream...same with Ank rouge desu

She said she doesn't buy things from their recent collection because it's expensive and she hasn't seen them irl but at the same time says she would buy something even more expensive second hand that she hasn't seen irl because she wants it badly. Seems like seeing it irl isn't that important after all.
Anon was saying that brands that get posted here blow up
Maybe the modern designs are less compelling to anon and require closer inspection?
Suppurate System went out of business years ago and I remember there was lots of drama. The owner is selling some stuff on his personal Fril or Mercari account, but it is mostly the decor for stock photos. There is a western brand called necrosarium or something that does similar style stuff, as unfortunately suppurate doesn’t pop up a lot second hand. Bit as other anon said System’id can be bought through Atelier Pierot, if you see something come by on twitter and it is not on their webshop you should send them an email. They are the best!
I love it so much, but the sizing confuses me. Like the coat is worn open in the front, so were are the sizes based on?

there's sailor themed stuff by lots of brands, in sweet, punk, historically inspired, etc. Idk if there's specific phrases I can give you or more info but I offer encouragement cos your idea sounds cute as heck!
Look up umi kei
Im trying to get into Ouji, not Lolita, which I stated I already know. Unless Choke got into wearing Ouji often when I wasnt paying attention.
I'm 5'7" and can fit into Japanese normal sizes fine, as long as I am mindful of the length and flatten my chest a bit. Are you sure its not your frame that's throwing your off?
Lose the attitude, whether or not you're an experienced lolita is hardly clear from the wall of text you wrote. Buying one item here and there doesn't mean you know what you're doing

Butter London had a gold mascara for five minutes, but I was a fool and didn't buy it before it too faded into oblivion.

ugh okay, its just such a hassle because the medical staff on my ship are SUCH assholes. Thanks though, i appreciate it
For cystic acne pretty much anything else they tell you will help is a lie unless you're a girl with PCOS and you go on birth control + spironolactone (I couldn't have the combined pill which is the anti-acne one, and I don't have PCOS so my doctor thought it would just be better to go straight for accutane so I could come off it eventually).
Prior to that I'd tried 6-week courses of antibiotic, cutting out dairy, cutting out sugar, fresh pillow cases/towels/hair always off my face, doing everything (topical acids, prescription retinoids, moisturisers, clay masks etc), doing nothing, hard vs soft water... and my acne only got worse into my 20s, plus I kept getting deep back cysts. My face was very, very mild compared to most people that get accutane for facial acne but it was sensitive as shit to everything, including having bangs even if I washed then daily, sunscreens and all foundations I tried. Finally went on 12 months of low dose accutane - it wasn't a cure all and I still get acne but it's the sort that actually responds to all the stuff like salicylic acid, and I haven't had any cysts.
Depends on your hair thickness. I have thick hair that has always shed like crazy but never gets any thinner. If you have thin hair, that's a bad sign

I feel you on the pain of sensitive skin due to acne and back cyst problems anon.

I had awful and extreme cystic and other acne despite proper diet and hygiene until around age 20 when I tried birth control to help skip my heavy periods. Then it suddenly lessened in intensity and I now only break out with normal zits near periods (only 4 yearly now) or if I eat anything with dairy or unhealthy.

Sometimes age or hormones really make a big difference. I had bad backne and had gotten a couple keloid scars from healed cysts on my back and that's when I started birth control before considering accutane.

Benzoyl peroxide as a topical also works wonders on cystic zits for me personally though it is drying and can leave a gray cast if you have tan or warm toned skin.

Sometimes I wonder if the hormonal or other changes birth control and accutane cause just nornalize whatever the fuck is wrong with acne prone bodies or if having lots of acne is normal and there are benefits we lose by trying to get rid of it.
It also depends on how much you brush, if the strands never get caught in the brush you are gonna shed that hair in another way.

Animenyc general, how’s everyone doing

If you're there tomorrow and still want to meet up, I'm down
I was just chilling there with some friends after eating at ticktock. I just commute lol

Same anon from earlier, it did get better, plenty of people to dance with. Also some e celebs were there if that interests you

The official after party was actually dope. They actually played 90% weeb music. I wasn't a big fan of the love live stuff in the beginning but that didn't last long.
