Gonna be contrarian and suggest being careful with brogues. They work, but they also make some girls' legs look stumpy because they cut your legs off at the ankles. If you're slim/slender then it'll probably be okay. Going with a lighter colour make the effect less drastic as the contrast is lessened.

Seconding secondhand brand or the IW sale.

If you're really worried, you can put them in plastic and stick stock photos on the front along with the pricing. That would cut down on people pawing through them directly, and if someone wants to handle the dress before they buy you can talk to them one on one. Of course, no trying on dresses, you can have a measuring tape handy and the measurements printed alongside the stock photo as well.

Fair disclaimer, this is based off vending dolls clothes. We do let them try the doll clothes on, but lolita clothes... you'd want to be able to turn down hamplanets without triggering some SJW storm.

I've been on the hunt for a nice, cute, pink coat with a capelet and have narrowed my options down to two: a BTSSB one for 9900 yen with reasonable shipping to where I am (I think like 15-20 USD) and a Kidsyoyo one for $170, another $80 for shipping. In pic, left is BTSSB and right is Kidsyoyo.

I really like the Kidsyoyo coat, the fact that it comes in a full set with a matching beret and hand warmer, and I've heard their coats are very warm (this one is 95% wool, 5% nylon), which is important as I'm located in a cold place. I love the embroidery and the warm brown accent color as well as the fact that it's overall a bit more low key and dusty pink. But while it's supposedly a limited edition release worth over $600, it's still taobao (granted, good taobao) and that shipping price is wild.

Judging from the pics of the inside of the Baby coat, it's a bit thinner and probably won't be super warm, but may be more durable in the long run, and the white fur trim helps the colors pop a bit more, yet at the same time feels a bit too out-there. But the price is so alluring!

I found this discussion on the LJ about coats, mentioning the quality of both Baby's and Kidsyoyo, if that helps supplement things. egl.livejournal.com/19104887.html

What should I do, gulls? Should I bite the bullet and shell out for the Kidsyoyo one?
Of course you should get the baby one. Kidsyoyo quality sucks and they do really overt design replicas, especially of Mary Magdalene. Speaking of MM, if you really want a high quality, warm coat I’d suggest one of theirs. I got pic related on mbok for around $200 a few years ago, and similar prices often show up elsewhere on the secondhand market.
Does IW ever restock things or are you just shit out of luck if they sell out?

I cant cut my hair, and I currently cant afford a wig, is there any way I can style my hair for lolita and not look like a fucking retard? Insp or tutorials appreciated.

Nice, I just ordered the very last style of their discontinued fringe bangs! Thanks for the recommendation, I've been debating on whether or not to cut my bangs
If you can’t afford a wig and you let your parents tell you what to do, then you have no place in lolita.
Lolita is a wonderful and expensive way to say „I don’t care about your opinion.“
>disappointed in me cutting my hair in general
how long is it? is it a cultural/relligious thing or attachment
You can get completely decent wigs for like $10 on amazon or ebay if you're willing to give them a little TLC (e.g. trimming, styling, de-shining). If you can afford lolita, then you can afford a wig.
Thanks for this, I ordered few and they are pretty good quality.

Since both Hospitality Doll and D.Walkure are being discussed again — why doesn’t anyone talk about Engelsbeginn as much? It’s part of the D.Walkure series but less Nazi, and nurse themed like HD but cuter and less costumey, with more interesting construction.
yep you got me. I'm a big ol' America hater.
red and white on my dresses only, to represent the glorious nippon flag.
I feel like HD is more popular because it was a much older release. I guess people covet it because it was the OG.
I personally much prefer Engelsbeginn and it's comforting to think maybe not as many people will be fighting over it if it ever pops up

Both of those are just controversial, they just always generate comments about how one of them is too short and the other one is too Nazi. It's not an indicator of how popular they are.
I've been thinking the same thing. I much prefer Engelsbeginn to HD, I don't really get the HD hype

there's so much wrong with this. why would you make a performance based video if the "actors" cant act? its so stiff and the awkward looks to the side when people walk past them...jeez. at least they learned to use safety shorts
I picked up a pair of those sliding closet doors that are mirrors for $30 at one of those repurpose shops. They show up on craigslist too if you're really short on a budget.
Oo, good idea
Watching Dietshampoo's Katsu blogs, I kinda see why her and Mimi got so close. Their mannerisms are pretty close including the catchphrase "(something that went wrong), but that's okay!" They also like to do the "no stress for this convention!" and then talk about how they made a dozen costumes in the two weeks before the con and pulled all nighters and stressed out sooo much. If you watch Diet's 2018 Katsu vlog she literally learned the dance (of which she was center) the day before the con because she was too busy making outfits. Sounds pretty familiar. Either her and Mimi will learn to share the spotlight and workload, and be less stressed overall, or their natures will complete against each other and it'll fall apart. Any thoughts?

I have a playlist of a few songs that might fit a Spring theme! (Though I don't speak much Japanese and I couldn't find English translations for some songs, so some of them might not be as fitting. Sorry about that!)

And if anyone's interested, here are two new virtual idol groups that look somewhat promising, though they've only posted character introductions so far. Both say they'll be releasing their first original singles "soon."

Do pettis have to be tiered to work well? I got 9 yards if super stiff tulle and basted it to make a gathered skirt and it seems to be fine for a cupcake-shaped petti
Am I just being lazy?
Tulle is not really a good choice for a petticoat, especially hard tulle. It’ll go flat after only a few wears and I find it to be rather scratchy. Chiffon is probably best, but I like organza too.

Yes, tiers are necessary to get the right shape. Two tiers for a-line, three for cupcake.

Old school era petticoats were stiff tulle. On egl livejournal you can still find some really old posts/comments that tell you to dry the petticoat over an open umbrella and then apply starch, after the petticoat has softened up and lost its stiffness. You do end up having to restarch it every time it loses its stiffness once you wash it, though. Bloomers cover your legs to help with the scratchyness of it.

If it works for you, then stick with it until it doesn't, I guess.

The point of having tiers it to be able to sew progressively more fabric with each layer. So for eg your lower layers might be two layers of 10 yards of fabric sewn to an upper layer that's only 3 yards wide, which is easier to gather to a(n elasticated) waistband that's only 1 yard wide. That way you have way, way less bulk at the waist to make you look fat, less bulk at the hips, and more poof at the bottom of your skirt to better achieve the bell shape. Plus it's usually easier to gather less amounts of fabric rather than trying to pile on 5 times the fabric onto a single yard waistband.
Cool thank you!! Seeing as I already bought the tulle on sale, I'll make a 3-tiered petti and starch it when it seems like it's starting to loose its poof, thanks!!

My comment was about otome kei threads since people were discussing that earlier

I could totally see this. While the otome threads were happening you'd frequently get girls on both sides, one side was trying to get "notome" happening, and the other side was busy screaming "it's otome, it's not ita!1!! stop posting otome in the ita threads!!1!"

So at the very least a vocal chunk of girls were using "otome" as an excuse to do lolita badly, they probably wanted to do lolita without da rules all along and simply hopped into otome because it looked similar to what they wanted to do, then probably hopped over to casual/soft lolita as soon as Misako brought up that idea.

I don't know about Larme though. That one seemed to slowly flicker out sometime after the board started lamenting the aesthetics didn't really have a cohesive ideal and was simply whatever was in the Larme magazine, I think? At one point half the thread consisted of that while the threads slowly got bumped with less and less content.

I really don’t think you know what you’re talking about. Even in early otome threads on egl it mostly attracted older girls, who liked ETC and JM. The special snowflake ita type definitely weren’t the majority of the girls involved in otome.

Larme threads died because it just isn’t a style that warrants a lot of discussion. It’s a general aesthetic or theme, not a fashion with a clear city silouhette like lolita. And larme aesthetics were trendy in western fashion for awhile, which made it accessible. Once that passed, the fad died down.

It's not the early threads. It's when the threads were active. Maybe you missed it if you were here early on, left at some point and came back later.

Nope, that person just didn't understand my question
Meanwhile 90% of London is bi but none of them are fucking each other
pretty sure someone discovering they're not asexual means their asexuality was the definition of invalid

Hey my family is Mauritian and my cousin is a weeb, and she knows weebs, so a Mauritian who lurks here is entirely possible.


If you exist Mauritian chan I would absolutely love to meet you.
DA, but as one of the bi people here, I used to identify as asexual because absolutely nothing stood out to me as attractive. Never felt anything at all and was fine with that, never went out of my way or questioned it aside from the usual "is something wrong with me". I am not really sure when I changed but I definitely don't feel that way now. I also don't think it negated that I was asexual at the time, because believe me for a while I did try to fix it, and it's just one of those things like how they say sexuality can be fluid, I'm not the person I was 10 years ago.
