Cut them, moron.
this was me before yesterday
aww, I'm glad that you managed to get something! Mind my asking what it was so I can live vicariously through your triumph?
How much are you trying to pay? I kept seeing them going cheap ($15-20) and missing out so finally just broke down and started buying the $40-50 ones when I found them. Now I have cream and black and just need white
it was literally a pair of btssb peeking bloomers! i actually found a pair for cheap will you drop me a throwaway and i can send the link to you?

The summer Paris meet was small but very successful, now it’s time for the Winter Chicago meet.
Are you planning to attend?

The comm-wide parapara project was also a success, the next one is currently being planned.

OfficeKiko x Esperanza boots started an old school gal nostalgia revival, followed by an event in Shibuya 109, now OK is doing a denim collaboration that is also inspired by gal/90’s fashion.
Did you buy the boots yet? Are you interested in the new denim

It also seems as though gyaru is having a small revival in the western community, are you excited or annoyed with all of the newbies?

Any winter meets planned locally? If so, are you/your circle/comm doing anything special for the holidays?

Datura is starting to look bland lately uhh..
Did anyone watch the superlatives? I found it very cute and non competitive! Also the majority of people I voted for won, haha. I'm glad Chris got recognition for their work on the community and obviously Lizzie is the sweetest gyaru imo
Chris here, I was so happy to receive that title! To me that's the most important one, since I think putting effort into my community is important, more so than looking cute or being likable. I also agree with most of the title winners, although some deserved a double win, like "Most Likely to Know the Tea" and "Best Old School Spirit"
Yep Lizzie, Georgie, Reina, Riko won in atleast one category or multiple, I was excited because I casted a vote for them.

I'm a lolita

So Anime Milwaukee is coming almost a month away post your plans for the con!
Post lineups or who you plan to cosplay.

No one yet. Looks like they haven't formally fired the disgusting fucker yet. The rest of the head staff needs to grow some fucking balls before the IRS investigates and comes after a bunch of them for being parties to embezzlement. Then it will be bye-bye AMKE.
First time I've heard of that one. Is it decently sized to make it worth the trip across to Indiana?
what's the quick rundown on this?

also going to bring mista and maybe weather report if i do some work on it
the con chair embezzled 40k from the vendor business he managed
no doubt he's embezzled thousands from AMKE too, so somebody oughta look into that. well, if they all care about the convention. apparently they all don't.
I'm not going. That con's so fucking waste of time.
yea, just like other anon said he's currently being sued for embezzling from Lemonbrat. and i know for a fact he embezzles from his corgi events (runs a bunch of fur cons- he has a bad rep there too) and from AMKE. shit's gonna hit the fan when they investigate and learn that he's been lying on his tax returns too. he's friends with Ryan Kopf as an example of the type of person he is. cheats on his wife, is a shitty never-there dad to his kid, is taking anti-aids meds so he can enjoy his furry orgies, just in general A++ trash human. i feel bad for the rest of the staff and attendees

Post your favourite cover/spread/page/article/coord/art/tutorial from a magazine. It doesn't have to be lolita.

I've seen only two pics from Virginmary (on the right). You can find it for cheap/decent price on the Japanese market, don't even bother with lacemarket.

straight up love this photo, tho. That little heart cutout? So cute.
I wish people would scan magazines again.

As the title says! What prints (or pieces) are you surprised to find are unpopular? What do you love about the item?

For me it’s IW’s Palace Rose. I fell in love with the print the moment I saw it, it’s so beautiful and has an almost regal feel to it, and it’s gorgeous in real life. And I love that it comes in green! I was so shocked to see that this is essentially a lucky pack reject item that sells for like $50 now!

I had this cut and colored, and god I wanted so badly to love it but that shirred bodice and length did me no favors. I'm surprised and glad to see it getting love, the print is wonderful.
Dropped pic ofc
Funk brothers wore it and posted to CoF r awhile ago. Don't remember what cut and color tho

It was in a different cut and the colorway was in pink. Here's a photo of it.
I had that cut in pink and the sleeve things on the side made it very awkward to wear. I ended up getting >>10084483 cut and it's still a pain in the ass to coord properly but so gorgeous.

Oh my gosh, you would make an INCREDIBLE Nana Osaki!

Holyshit guys, thank you. I don't know how I didn't think of Nana. I already cover the song Rose for fucks sake.
Also, a lot of awesome suggestions from series' that I'm already familiar with but didn't consider.
I'm excite
I'm so happy you liked the suggestion! The world needs more Nana cosplayers. Do you have an IG we can follow to see it?
/Nervous sweating

That's honestly why I like this thread. Not only to help other people find cool cosplay ideas, but it manages to make you think about everything you've overlooked.

Post the best and worst replicas you’ve seen. Can also post Taobao links for those who want a closer look.

You're actually stupid if you believe that having ethical consumption morals equals racism. or this is just some bait, can't tell yet.

but if it's not, how about you realize that when you directly fund a capitalist system set up to kill its own people you are only encouraging them to do the same. just because someone's chinese doesn't mean they're immediately absolved of their wrong doings retard
You guys are like stupid Eurofags or Chinese on their leash, aren’t you? They’re destroying Christian churches and anything pertaining to religion, including ancient temples and a lot of Chinese history.
>hurdur sounds just like America btfo
I can accuse my government of anything I want without being executed or having religious institutions destroyed. Nice try on trying to leave all that out and also they’re still the execution capital of the world that’ll kill you for literally any dissent.
>KEEEEK China is not the source of all replicas you see polluting the market
Show us proof of non-Chinese replicas then.
Probably the same people who think Trump is putting journalists lives at risk by criticizing them, not realizing other countries literally just kill or jail forever journalists critical of the man in charge.
>imagine being this edgy

There may have been threads on this but I haven’t been here in a minute

Anyone else going? I know it’s teeny tiny but more people from here went than I expected.

Yeah I get you, it’s especially bad bc of Insta constantly changing their algorithm. My follower count increase slowed waaaay down around the end of summer, and engagement dropped too. I guess one more piece of advice is to target who you’re engaging with- if you post a cosplay from XYZ series go like/comment on other cosplays from the same series.
Your account is super cute and aesthetically pleasing. I'd suggest that you work on posing and facial expressions though.
What are the primary lolita fashion hashtags?
Eglfashion, eglcommunity, lolitafashion, "substyle"lolita, ott"substyle", brand name

Makes me mad, insta is the ONLY thing that I couldn’t get my handle for but it’s the platform I use for cosplay. Irony.

I try to follow the lesser knowns because talent likes to hide and get lost among the tiddy. I also follow tiddy.

Pic related, judge as harsh as you want, it was just a quick makeup test to see if I’d want to do it for a con next month.

Tattobot (not so much cosplay but aesthetics and runs ATS with mf)
Sleepyclaudie (our former underageb&)
Ukrainekraine (another seagull, does great commissions)

No prob! I didn't think anyone else bought one so I wanted to share.

It's seriously cute! The front is a little weird looking though because on the underside on the front only there's a layer of yellow? Not sure why. That's why the bottom hem and the front panel don't match in color.
bless you anon

Everyone and their mom has made or wants to make a costume based on Sakizou's illustrations, but there are plenty of artists out there that draw outfits just as gorgeous and intricate, so why not promote some of them? If you've cosplayed from any of these artists' work, drop a pic, and if you have a favorite artist please shout them out! Please include their name, an image to show their style and a link to their pages!

This thread is for any and all discussion and questions about shoes and foot care related to lolita and other j fashion

Just to get us started:
What shoe brands do you love?
What do you do to prevent scuffing and peeling?
Do you use insoles? What kind?
What brand of shoe do you own the most of?
What shoes would you recommend that no one ever buy again?
Do you have high arches or flat arches? If so, how do you combat that in heels?
Do you take care of your feet and nails as part of your skincare routine?

Idk about boots but I've bought shoes they'd ebay and recieved one pair from Sosic and one from Angelic Imprint. Worked out fine but taobao is still usually cheaper
I bought a pair of Miss L Fire boots a few years ago. They fell apart after a few wears. The leather was good quality but the hardware and construction was the cheapest possible. I was so disappointed.
Oh that's too bad! I bought all 4 pairs of mine in 2012-2014 and they are well built, but maybe they've gone downhill since then. Their website sure is shite right now.
Looking for brand suggestions. I'd like to buy a pair of staple gothic platform mary janes or something similar. My feet are rather big, 26.5 and wider than average, so finding appropriate shoes is always a pain. Antaina's shoes are rather uncomfortable, same probably applies to Angelic Imprint. Are there more options?
TUK have a few creeper-soled mary janes, Demonia have a range of heels and platforms (although can be hit or miss sizing and fit wise, see up thread), Ellie and Pleaser have the basic chunky heeled mary jane with platform. Sometimes school shoe stockists do a decent mary-jane although don't often have much of a platform; Clarks, Hush Puppies and Roc (Australian brand) all have some but that may not be the look you want unless you're inspired by older street snaps. If you don't mind leaning a bit on the classic side, Hotter have the Viviene heel which comes in a wide fit and UK8/27 (although they are more in the classic side, being a t-strap low heeled mary jane), Miz Mooz have a couple of mary jane styles, and other "vintage/retro" brands may be worth looking at...

What exactly makes a cosplay 'bad'?

>shes 12. gross
wut? this only makes it hotter.
Dudes who cosplay as some female character, worse if they are husky or some thirsty anon from fit
if you're worried about wig styling, just take it to a beauty school and have a student cut it for you. $8 well spent and a lot cheaper than trying to get some overpriced booth at the con to do it for you
I'm finally trying to get back into cosplaying after a long hiatus, I've got about 6 months to lose the weight I've gained and I've finally gotten sewing lessons from my seamstress grandma, so I'm aiming to look like I give a fuck. Reading all of your pet peeves has really filled me with determination to get rid of everything that you guys mention, so thanks!

Post your favourite streetsnaps! Both oldschool and modern
