Sometimes I feel sorry for how accessible lolita fashion has become. Back then you needed to deal with so many obstacles. Every brand purchase has become something extraordinary and precious. It doesn't feel that special anymore and I miss that.

Another feel is based on my observation about other people's outfits and their quality. So many people say that insta perfectionism has killed the spirit of lolita. Well, today I noticed that imperfect, maybe somewhat messy outfits bother me, so idk what do I stick to.

Hey, just a hypothetical but... If I sell something for cheap on LM, would it be rude to ask the buyer AFTER they send me my money how much they would have been willing to pay for it? I really just want to know how much of a steal-deal I offered....
I would thing that was a weird question and probably just put you off with an answer like, ‘oh, idk anon, the price was just right for me right now and I like the dress so that’s why I bought it’.
It’s up to you to do the research to figure this shit out, don’t you think? Or at least ask on the bst thread?
Thank you, but no, this is a feels post. You're right about the research part though. I'm new to selling things, and did my research afterwards. Now that I know that I'm selling something people covet and want to pay more than what I'm selling for... It's a complicated feel, but I want to feel that I'm doing someone a favour by sticking with my original price, because that's how much I want in exchange for this item. So now I'm just sitting here dreaming and having major feels by imagining if that would happen to me. Don't we all want to find a high-demand item for cheap?
something to be asked here on cgl, I'd personally think it really weird to be asked this, esp if I hadn't received the item yet I'd be wondering if you were trying to change the sale or sth
I guess if it is such a high demand item you’d know it because it sold right away. If not to someone who would love it, to someone who sees an easy money resale. Not everyone buys cheap just to flip but I wouldn’t say no to buying something cheap, wearing it once or twice and then selling it for market value. That’s an easy way to get some extra dosh to buy more for my wardrobe.

Which building?
They're both at the Kay Bailey this year.
No. You just contact them to get a refund and get the dual badge. There was a Facebook comment by staff about that.

I was at Nomikai and didn't even realize there was a swap. What the hell? I swear that wasn't on the schedule.
And the dual badge is $140... Just look at their website. They would fuck themselves over if they let people into both events for $60.
I'm sorry, I didn't realize the confusion was over the price. I thought the confusion was over whether or not you could get a refund. $140 seems reasonable to me, and you could always make a buddy on the other side and swap passes for a little bit.

I last went to it in 2017 but very casually, went to Matsuri awhile after and can say I definitely prefer the smaller chill con experience and meeting more people. Also don’t have many con-goer friends to afford and enjoy bigger cons. Although I heard that Oni-con has kinda stagnated the past few years, is it still worth for someone who is more into socializing like me?

So I'm in my mid 30's and giving conventions a try again after not going for years and they have really changed. Last time I went, other than A-Kon this year, was in my late 20's and overall con's were a lot smaller.When I went to A-Kon this year I was amazed at how massive it was compared to the last time, which was in 2011. Con's being smaller and being younger made it easier to relate to other fans but now it seems a lot harder.

So what do the older, 30 and over con goers do? I mean going to a room party with kids half my age doesn't sound fun as well as a huge risk. There are panels but are there other events for older con attendee's?

feels good senpai
I’m 27 and only 2 things have changed for me:

1) I try to go with friends who are vending so that I have an excuse to sit for a while at their booth when my old person knees hurt

2) I WILL not room with more people than there are allotted bed spaces. I did 9 in a 2 person room when I was 24 and it broke me
>. I did 9 in a 2 person room when I was 24 and it broke me
That sounds fucking awful. The most I'd put up with is one or two people sleeping on the floor. Though I've only gotten a hotel once, and I split it with a single friend since we both worked full time and it wasn't a huge expense for us
Weird thread to flex in but okay. Most congoers have no concept of how people age especially with makeup, and just assume anyone over 25 looks like the crypt keeper. I don't have a babyface but when I was 30 lots of people would ask if I was only low 20s and one kid even thought I was 17. Odds are that there's lots more 30-40 year olds at cons than some people think.

>Stuck in 2006-2010 mode

Me in a nutshell. Its very nice that you met your wife at Otakon. It was always my dream to meet my SO at that con, I went for 10 years and it never happened. I only goto one anime con a year these days and even then I can't justify a hotel anymore. The con is close enough where I can make a day trip, get there at 12pm Saturday, stay till 2am and feel like I got the full con experience. Its hard being 30+ and going to cons alone, my old weeb buddies grew out of the stuff and don't want to go anymore. That being said I'm not some weirdo or creep, I'm a pretty fit normal guy but new anime sucks.

I searched for screetone but it doesn't seem like it exist cheap option, is it just that you can't find them on the website or it's just my keywords who sucks ?
why is it always indian guys? you'd think it'd be chinese guys because of the gender imbalance there, but no

And I don't mean quality wise, I mean character. What are the worst cosplays in terms of character, always cosplayed by worst, cringiest, creepiest, dramiest etc. people?

For me Grell (and Alois) cosplayers always seem to always be extremely touchy and are huge dramas queens.

A little bit late to the party, but I hope you enjoy it.
Took some creative liberties but you look super cute anon

We haven’t had a thread for this in a while and as I got a crazy flight deal last week I’ll be going back again in March and want some ideas of more places to shop and go to (for EGL, vintage toy/figure buying/BJDs and secondhand stores.) For anyone going in the near future or who has been, discuss your experiences and ask questions. The last threads like this were a wealth of information and finding good places to shop for lolita/cosplay/weeb shit is always helpful.
Avoiding summer 2020 with the Olympics and general summer humidity would be smart though.
Some discussion topics/questions:

>Good places to eat that are not tourist traps (other than themed cafes)
>Best places to shop for lolita/Jfashion other than brand stores and Closet Child
>Cute themed cafes that are actually worth it
>Good places to buy collector's items and goods
>Is Tokyo Disney worth it if you've already been to Disney Sea
>Are there any events that are worth hitting up in the next few months/year?
>Different areas of Tokyo and what to do in each
>Good places to see related to our hobbies
>Best places to get legit weeb shit/cosplays/merch and not get ripped off.
>If you start out in Tokyo is it worth going to other cities/getting a JR Pass?

Baby TP is usually last Saturday of October, sometimes 1 week earlier

AP TP is first Tuesday of December

Sometimes there are random smaller parties, no way to predict those

If you want to be absolutely sure of the dates, you should wait to book 2-3 months before when the events are announced. They usually keep those schedules but you never know when they might try to mix things up. Either of those times of year are nice to visit Tokyo at any rate.

We had a similar problem when we snagged Pokemon Cafe reservations last year, we ended up doing only half a day instead of trying to find things to do there.

Nihonbashi is walking distance nearby, you can look if they have anything you'd be interested in when you go. There's some nice temples if that's your jam, there was a festival they lit the streets up for when we went.

Glad to know I'm not the only one at a loss. I figured if nothing else I'd go in the morning if I could get an early cafe slot and just shop a bit before heading to the cafe then go from Tokyo Station to Akihabara Station and spend the rest of the day since it's just 5 minutes up the line.

Might have to save Ikebukuro for another day because I have a lot I want to do there and I don't think I could do all three stops in one day. My schedule is going to be packed as it is.
Hopefully I'm not crazy trying to do all this, if anyone wants to chime in?
I'll be near Toyocho Station (in Koto) with free time Mon-Fri.

Mon - Tokyo Disneyland
Tues - Tokyo Disney Sea
Weds - Toyocho Station to Ikebukuro
Thurs - Tokyo Station to Akihabara
Fri - Ikspiari, Diver City (easy day)

Days may vary depending on the Pokemon Cafe and jetlag.
Harajuku is worth it for the back streets and Laforet. If you’re in a hurry then avoid the main street and head to Urahara.

most lolitas i know where it all over the place whenever they can and that is true of a lot japanese lolitas as well if you read their forums, there just obviously arent many of them

Can anyone who speaks Japanese translate this? https://www.instagram.com/p/B7hUo_hn4kv/?igshid=xpbev9jzg6m2

Google translator seems to say something that will make a lot of lolitas butthurt kek. Although, going with the google translated text, I'd love to see a lolita style that has an adult twist and larme pickings.
zipper repair is one of the most common repairs done, See if you have any dry cleaners near you that also do alterations, they'll be cheaper than going to anything bridal related. I swear just mentioning the word 'wedding' can make the price on alterations go up by at least 25%.
Something to the effect of, "When one hears the word 'lolita', they might think of pink or black. Please enjoy the new world of lolita fashion with a mature brown color."
I think it's easy to misinterpret it to be insulting lolita, but the word for "mature" has a different meaning in Japanese. You could interpret it to mean something like ladylike or poised. Whereas in English, the use of "mature" would imply that lolita, pink, and black are all "immature," which isn't the case here.
I find a lot of jfash publications have attempted to call their new style "new lolita" or "neo-lolita" without much success. The die-hards who are still wearing lolita (in Japan) aren't the same audience as those who are looking at these magazines and brands. At least I find, anyways. Maybe they're trying to reel-in OLs who used to be lolitas back in the day and are looking for something reminiscent of the style? Who knows.

I was debating between being a couch goblin today or working today, so thanks for this even though my inner sloth wants the former. I'll be thinking of that good feeling of being proud of what I make instead!
Kinda, I got the pieces of the outfit cut out but I have to pack away my thread and machine, I found out that the place I am moving to is under renovation and I can't access the boxes that I left there. So I am basically waiting for a month to go by. Looking at the calendar I got a week before the event, if I really put my mind on it I can get it done, but it's definitely a squeeze. This is one of the reasons why I don't really like doing group costumes, because of things like this Happening
Oof that's unfortunate, good luck anon once you can finally get started on it again

if in any public place you are suspected of being on drugs you can be taken into custody for your own well-being
Really? Huh... guess either Im not belligerent enough or nobodys bothered to fuck with me. I mean Im certainly not complaining.
Among traps and gay males. They are either more sexually open or just society enables a more open atmosphere among men when it comes to casual sex.
It feels good knowing that I've annoyed almost no one while drunk. At my last con my buddy didn't feel like going out partying so I went solo and bounced around from group to group. Every group I joined was really chill and happy to talk and pass the time, and most of them even gave me free drinks.
I met a guy at some parking lot party who wanted me to introduce him to girls, no idea why he thought I'd know any. I went with him to a random group and tried striking up a conversation, and that was the only group I joined that night that didn't seem into talking. After about a minute of awkward small talk with one word replies I asked if we should take off. I think they felt weird about it or something, because they said we could stay, but it seemed like they were uncomfortable talking so I excused us anyway and found some other people to talk to.

I'm fairly shy when sober, but after some light drinking I'm super social
Or to arrest you depending on the area but the trick is not being suspected of anything which generally means not causing a scene, talking loudly about your drugs, having them out in the open etc. Fairly simple.
