I haven't played these games much but is the OP picture supposed to be serious, or a parody? Because this sounds like a one-way ticket to abusive girlfriend land.

Like the title says, has your enjoyment of cosplay or Lolita been impacted by certain internet communities at all? How so?

I've been spending a lot of time on lolcow for a while and it's really warped my perception of both communities, especially lolita. I found myself thinking of the lolita community as a toxic cesspool filled with severely mentally ill women whose obsession with internet personalities often dips it's toes into stalkerish. It made me want nothing to do with anyone in the community. Then I remembered the posters there are a minority within lolita and most of the community is not that unhinged at all. I decided to stop going there because it's such a ridiculously toxic environment and I could feel myself turning into a crazy cunt from having that behavior so normalized.

>I was on the verge of quitting lolita. But fortunately, I quit social media instead

i am honestly shocked that more people don't make this realization. good on you for being aware that it was the social media/comparing/negative community involvement that spurred your dislike instead of quitting the hobby itself

when people quit the hobby itself because of the other people in the hobby, i question whether or not they ever really liked the hobby for what it is to begin with. and if that's the case, then good riddance

Nyart but I don't understand why more people don't come to this realisation too, maybe they do but they just don't talk about it so much? When I was about 14 I was obsessed with all those efamous living doll girls who wore 'lolita' and wanted to be like that (this was around the time Venus and Dakota were in the height of popularity) I got into the routine of obsessively shooping my photos and hyper focusing on likes, positive comments and how I looked. I started hating the way that I actually looked in photos and wasn't enjoying dressing up so much, it just made me miserable. I lasted about a month before I realised being a social media person was just not for me.

6+ years later and I learned what lolita fashion actually is (not the crap I thought it was then), and I really enjoy wearing it and don't feel the need to be some big celebrity. I'm content enough in just enjoying the fashion for myself. When I don't feel like wearing it I just don't, I don't need to answer to anyone. It's my style/hobby and I enjoy it how I choose to. If my barely pubescent 14 year old self was aware enough to come to that realisation, I don't understand why so many grown ass women don't and instead quit liking the stuff they do. I really just don't understand the girls who start off trying to be some big lolita celebrity then flounce and go full normie or switch to some other shitty style with less ~rules uwu~ the second they get any concrit. Maybe it's just our subculture's way of self regulating?

I've yet to see a Joker cosplayer who is anything but weird. They aren't that common these days, and most people just kinda ignore them. Harley cosplayers are ludicrously common at normie cons, but that might not even be true anymore since they are dying out. Deadpool will forever be cancer, and every Deadpool cosplayer is always somehow worse than the last.

funny thing, cosplayers are the reason why i hate deadpool and cant ever like him
too many disgusting drunk deadpools sexually harassing and assaulting girls and minors at cons. some people defended them and said "well hes deadpool he can do what he wants"

also lets be real only fat girls cosplay as HQ

Närcon vendor tables go on sale 18. march at 15:00.

What's närcon like?? Is the AA worth it? I am a filthy foreigner wanting to table there and I want to scout out some information ahead of time.

Any other swedish conventions you'd recommend?

Not that I'm aware of. Possibly Tradera but I'm not sure how effective that would be.
Stockholm sometimes have swapmeets, the next one is in June
>>
>>10132892
I see, kind of miss gothloli. Have tried tradera, shpock etc but it's nearly impossible to sell or find anything that isn't ita. You think it's worth going to the swap meet as an out-of-towner?
>>
>>10132929
I do too, it was really nice. Are you looking to buy or sell? I've had good experiences with the Facebook buy/sell group.
There's more people selling than buying at the swap meets in my experience, but usually you get rid of at least some things. I've found some bargains, people usually really want to get rid of things. On the other hand if you're looking to sell people might be really interested, it kind of depends on what you're selling. Sorry for really vague answers but it really depends on what your plan is and what you're looking for or what you're selling

What happenes to gothloli? I used to frequent the site when i was a toubg teenager, then i wanted to look it uoa again some years later and it was gone.

maybe a bit of blue to cancel out the yellows? chances are that's just the color of the material though, so you'll have to bleach it or get a white lace.

Refinery29 posted a video on the chola fashion subculture in Japan, which reminds me of the blackface debates around b-stylers, some takes on ganguro, etc.

What do you think of this side of jfash? And is the chola look the new ganguro?

This is true. Japan has been blindly copying western fashion for centuries. SJWs don't care when asians practice "whiteface" because on some level they see white culture as universal, something that should be spread everywhere. Fashions created by brown people need to stay in their own lanes though

Nevermind that Japan adopted the rockabilly and greaser style decades after it came about in the US. In past decades a lot of Japanese fashion companies scoured for ideas by parking themselves on Ivy-league campuses and copying whatever New English upper-class styles they saw young WASPs wearing.

They also realistically assumed that if it was politically correct to copy the Italian-american underclass, then the same applies to hispanic-americans

I should probably look deeper into KonMari, I like the "sparks joy" idea and have a box full of stuff I've been trying to sell off.

I'm going to IKEA next week, so hopefully I can get some cohesive furniture for displaying.

Colors welcome include

>orange

so popular colors (red,pink,blue,black,yellow) aren't really suited to this thread unless coordinated with above listed unusual colors.

What bag is this?

Almost everyone on this board uses photography equipment in some way, whether they're in front of or behind the camera. So let's talk about equipment.
What cameras do you like? Which lenses are your favorite? What does your lighting set up look like? For people who self shoot, how do you set your stuff up?

They're useless cucks who'd rather rub their dicks on their overpriced gear, while offering absolutely no insight that actually applies to the niche. They'd have an autistic meltdown at the guy who mentioned a Rebel.

Let cosplayers talk about photography, newfag. We've had these threads on and off since the board started because they're on topic to the community and hobby.
