Is mori kill?

How do you avoid the homeless look when wearing mori? Tips to avoid it?
>>
>>10128471
do your hair and your makeup. the look as a whole needs to look intentional, so styling your hair like >>10128467 for instance, or just having a simple but intentional haircut like >>10120686 helps a lot. makeup shouldn't be over the top or dramatic, but you should look fresh and youthful

also mori relies heavily on rich, luxe textures, sometimes delicate (lace, gauze) and sometimes weighty (corduroy, cable knit) and those materials by default don't look cheap.
>>
>>10128471
I'd say >>10128516 brings up a good point in that if your hair and face don't look ragged, then you generally won't look homeless. Also clean clothing and smelling nice.

It's hard to say what to avoid clothing-wise besides cheap looking stuff, since a lot of layers is kind of the point, but I see the layered dress looks in paler colors more often than darker colors. Dark colors is more for pic related most of the time. Of course there's no real rules for mori than "look like you came from the forest", either in a realistic and grounded way or in a whimsical fairy tale way.

In the end, normies will still think you're kind of strange.

>magically get you likes now

Try always. Black girls always get a higher average number of likes because of the high number of virtue signalling sjws and other black girls forming some sort of weird fidelity club with their skin tone.
Unless the coord is completely ita, we will always get more likes on average.

>>10129495
The point still makes sense. Pointing out an obvious fact is not insulting, but guess you're too much of a retard to get that.

Weird how you can psychically tell someone's race from miles away through a screen. I'm sure your powerful skills of deduction could be used well in a law enforcement career.

I say "their" skin tone because that whole "black chix gotta stick togetha" never really vibed with me.
So yes, THEY form a weird club about THEIR skintone.

I did not like the pj pants coord but I actually like this one. The repeated texture of the pants in the jacket makes it look much more purposeful. The other coord just literally looks like she threw pants on under a normal coordinate.

Anyone following the Antoinette Decoration listing on Fril. What’s up with that seller? First it was 40,000¥, then it got discounted to 30,000¥. Three shopping sevices replied if they could buy it. Then it was reserved at 33,000¥ by a buyer I have seen before, but I am not sure if it is a Shopping Service as well. I think they didn’t buy it as it is listed again now at 35,000¥. The seller is like “No price deductions” but she originally sold it for less...
I really hope AP re-releases this series. It’s really hard to get the items for less than the original price.

I have contacted those who I have marked as possible victims of Grinches and am awaiting contact from our volunteers! Again, if you have not received anything and have not been contacted by me - send me a message ASAP so I can see what is happening.

We are still needing volunteers for about 6 more cards, so if you have cute stationery you never use and want to help out - please let us know!

Otherwise, please continue to post gifts!

I love it!!! Oh my goodness it's a perfect fit!
I've always wanted a shirt like this, sorta futuristic with an aesthetic vibe, but most importantly you were right, /fa/ would be proud!
Funnily enough I never really could figure out what to grab as a fashion choice when I browsed there a few times, always found a few things that looked good but nothing that looked great on me or a certain style that fit with how I look in general. This is perfect though! Really! I love it
(for those immediately curious like I was about what it said, the text reads "Far Journey" which is pretty appropriate for the design)
I never thought this type of fashion would suit me but it just goes to show how important it is to try new things, this was just the nudge I needed. Easily one of my favorite shirts in my wardrobe now!

(More to come, also please no bully my room I wanted to get this out fast)

And then a combination of gifts from both of my favorite anime (I'm putting the guppy sticker on my PC tower right after I finish writing this) I've wanted to have a real journal/itinerary that's personalized for a long time, you can bet I'm going to use it!
As soon as I grab some proper non-tearing poster putty I'm going to be putting that up as well, I've been meaning to add some life to this place for a while and this is perfect for that.
Finally, the cosplay guide. Again, fantastic, you were 100% right that I was primarily an armor guy, and it's so nice to finally have a proper guide that I can consult while I'm working rather than needing to constantly check a guide on my phone or computer, not to mention how much more professional and tailored this is to someone like me. Really, I can't say thanks enough!

Everything was wonderful, I'm overjoyed to be getting all this! A very Happy Holidays and the Best of New Years!

This is true, they have been talking down on conventions being held at expo centers for having no ambience etc. before. They also weren't very subtle about that back then. I'm sure some people will remember from conversations.

>So them siding with a project like Rekindle is an obvious sign of them grasping at straws to have some form of event filling.

I can see that logic. But why not side with projects that actually has financial prospects if finance is the truggle. Sorrynotsorry Rekindle, sure Stefanie is pretty but judging by that Kickstarter trailer looks like a hobbyist cmv video. The director made music videos before, why didn't he at least made a video up to a music video quality for the pitch.

How do you go about matching colors? My wardrobe is mainly red and somehow none of the main pieces are the same shade and I don't want to buy same headdress 10 times in slightly different shades. Is it impossible to have a cohesive wardrobe in lolita? Do you have one, and if so how, or do you always go for full sets?

>>10125232
For red you just need to watch your undertones. Blue-reds look best with other blue-reds, even if they're not the same shade. But to me at least, I find and orange red and blue red together can be 'off'.
>>
This might help https://colorsupplyyy.com/app/
>>
>>10125232
Imo exact color matching isn't super important in any fashion. The gripe about colors not matching is more that the colors have different tones like >>10125370 said.
For example, if your dress has burgundy roses on the print and you wear a burgundy bow that's slightly darker, you'd be fine since no one expects you to have the exact Pantone match for the burgundy. If you wore the same dress with a bright apple red, then it would look off since the color is so different.
>>
I think it starts to look bad when people are too caught up in color matching and symmetry. Especially when the sacrifice silhouette of pieces for the sake of color.

Alternate thread title: "How often do you wear lolita?"

Inspired by the mess that happened in the "Trends you hate" thread, lets discuss how we balance adult life with lolita fashion, how often we wear it, tips and advice to living a more "lolita" life, etc

>How many main pieces do you have?
>Do you attend meets or cons?

I would recommend ZenMarket. They're kind of slow when it comes to buying items but that's not a huge problem if you're buying something that's not going to sell out fast. They only charge a 300 yen fee per item and have a wide variety of shipping options.
