/cgl/ is a board for the following:

• 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. The singling out rule applies to vendetta threads and replies being made to attack a specific person, as well as predatory behavior like doxing. Discussing an individual in general isn't against the rules as long as it's done within context of cosplay/lolita/j-fashion.

If I had to think of an iconic gothic shoe, it's the platforms. Not necessarily these ones, Moitie also did their own platforms, and there was a time when everybody seemed to be wearing Yosuke platforms in different designs.

That being said, the exact shoes will vary a lot with your coord. If you're going for a more toned down look then maybe platforms are a bit too much. If you're doing more of a punk-gothic kinda look then maybe you'd want something more edgy than platform shoes. It's very hard to say "these shoes will go with all gothic" without having seen exactly what your coord looks like.

>>10274448
Not the anon, but your quick to call someone useless when, no offense, you probably didn't bother to look into the shops mentioned and wanted to be spoon fed to the extreme.

I love Supergroupies, for example, and have bags and shoes from them that are great quality. And yes, you can get things from the other shops that were mentioned, amiami and animate. I have purchased parkas, shirts, jewelry, and cardigans from amiami.

And yeah, you do sort of just have to wait until a collab is announced or products go up for sale for a limited time. I have a lot of Sailor Moon items from Q-Pot, GU, Princess One Spoon, and Gracegift (Taiwan brand) that I found through announcements. And all the things I bought on amiami were found by browsing there frequently.

If you want official, high quality items from Japanese shops they will likely come from a collab and these are limited time sort of things. Your best bet is looking at Mercari and Fril for used items from past collabs.

She does. She's made videos complaining about them in length. But from what ive gathered she doesn't mind legitimate brolitas, which i think is fair.

Mag is a community convention in Erfurt/Germany. Where Cosplay, Youtube, Game and Fashion communities come together.

This years MAG had quite a lot to offer for Lolitas.
There was a big Baby the stars shine bright booth, a Indie and Btssb Fashion show and finally the Btssb Teaparty.

I just found their insta and wonder why they need a wheelchair? It seems that in a lot of pictures taken they're perfectly fine with walking/standing? They use a cane, ok. But the wheelchair seems a lot like tumblr sjw snowflake catching for bonus points?
>>
>>10271940
I'm not disabled myself but I have some friends who use crutches or canes often, but a wheelchair for long outings. It's just less tiring for your arms, back, etc. having to support yourself for long periods of time if you're sitting.
I'm not saying this person isn't trying to get 'snowflake points' or emphasize their disability, but it is actually common to use a variety of aids depending on the situation.
>>
>>10271940
anon, some people can have times where they don’t need to rely on their wheelchair 100% of the time, which is most likely the case here.
>>
>>10271940
he does apparently have some sort of disability where he can't walk for longer distances.
It seems though that he's heavily overplaying it for special snowflake bonus points.

>>10272194
The person is actually known for wanting snow flake points..

If that's true then it was miilkribbon. She was the old admin
>>
>>10273316
Wow really? Why she did this? Transferring ownership is so much easier.
>>
>>10273381
My best guess is that she had the same mentality that lots of other fb group admins tend to have where they treat admining groups like they're running a country or some shit. I've seen all kinds of fb groups get deleted for bs drama and where the original admins didn't want to transfer ownership because of "sentimental reasons". It's incredibly cringy, especially when it's big groups with lots of resources that get affected. I suppose it's something like that.

This and if it´s really true we are also talking about miilkribbon which is a huge dramaqueen and totally mental.

oof it's been a few years since I've posted here
But most recent project is coming along smoothly. Made a bit more progress since taking the selfie, so almost done by now - belt's studded, back patch is sewn on, holster came in and logo's been removed. Mostly just need to sew on the shoulder patches, and do makeup stuff.

It's concrit, anon. Unlike nitpicks, it's long because it explains in detail what's wrong, and also provides suggestions for fixes.

I know, I'm replying to a shitposter, not like they weren't transparent, and they ignored the newbie thing because of course it's a larper and have no answer, I'm saging, I'm saging.

>I don't like how big it is
This part makes it sound like you're wearing massive boomer ties. Try something skinnier and thinner, easier to do for actual work stuff than nanchatte but plenty of Japanese school uniforms use relatively skinny ties as well. You can also just go tieless with a blazer or whatever but if you're doing it for nanchatte you have to have the look for it overall.

maybe you can try to find a really nice clip-on tie?

Looked at Conomi’s English website. Because I’m built like a chubby male I’m guessing their sizes are just too small for me? Like the skirts say W80, I’m assuming that’s waist in cm? I don’t know what some of the tips sizes are though, like 175A. There isn’t a legend or anything.
