new thread >>10053941

I saw a post earlier from a lolita that wasn't sure what she wanted out of the fashion anymore. Well, one thing that really helps me get re-inspired is looking through my wardrobe and remembering all the things that made me fall in love in the first place.

For me, it's accessories. From socks and bloomers to wristcuffs and headdresses. I'm absolutely in love. I actually find myself wanting these types of things over most main pieces I see (I'm an old schooler, so that might be part of the reason).

What is it that you absolutely love about lolita? Is it a specific type/cut of dress you can't get enough of? Does torchon lace make your heart dokidoki? Or maybe it's a certain fabric that gives you heart eyes? Bonus points for pictures, because I want to see what it is that makes you happy, and perhaps some other anons do as well.

There's a kind of 'magic' (for lack of a better term) in the way beautiful materials are constructed to become part of your life.
For me, I'm alway brought back to that initial feeling of wonder when I discovered the fashion every time I order something that transforms the orientation of my tastes.
I got into this fashion for the prints and accessories but switched to velvets and laces after purchasing a piece on a whim.
Before I would never wear red or religious motifs and now both of those are ingrained into my visual language because of an intense drive to purchase a piece on a whim.
Today I received a package with a long shantung flocky white skirt, purchased on a curious whim, and yet again I am aesthetically moved by its materiality.
This fashion reinvents itself on personal and global scale. It's an alternate history and alternate future with an agenda to take up space in the present.
Finding new ways to fall in love with something proves that its alive.
I've been resigned to being forever single since my last relationship tanked but this gif makes me long to have another girlfriend. Dammit anon.

This is adorable, and same! There's just something so pleasing about seeing the poofed out skirt on my shadow.
Seeing everyone dressed up and excited at meets, all he styles represented but still decidedly lolitas all together.
All the little details like special lace patterns.
Chunky heels.
Rectangle headdresses
Building coordinates.
Brand Umbrellas/parasols

My wardrobe is medium sized now, I’m past the ‘chasing’ items to build it solid so my purchases are less frequent but more targeted and each one adds to the whole.
this thread is so wholesome! i have zero curves so i love how the lolita silhouette looks on me! slowly forcing my casual wardrobe to be otome haha. also fancy lace is the best!! donut lace to match a donut print! it’s the little things
Aside from all the visual things that I love about the fashion, I really love that I can buy brand and it will just fit me.

No going to ten different stores and trying on a hundred blouses to find one that fits. It's nearly impossible for me to find "'woman's" clothes in the US that fit me (I have to shop in juniors and I'm almost 30).

With lolita, I just buy it and it fits. I finally feel like my little body was meant for something.

>Was it a full catsuit?
Yes, and a neck entry catsuit. Last I saw the video was on YouTube, obviously NSFW. It did require a lot of lube though. Not everyone considers this a problem... Still, the latex can tear, it happens even for the most experienced people.

BTW here is a rather elaborate cosplay short in two episodes:
Ep1: https://youtu.be/vRUUk2AZNhc
Ep2: https://youtu.be/BjyEv79v7Oo

Interesting! That's neat then.

I'm sure a movie would have the budget for multiple catsuits and the technicians for this sort of thing.
Chat Noir's suit is canon leather.

To the anon that recommended the wunderwelt original petti to me a little while back, I just got it in the mail today and it is indeed huge! I have no doubt that it will be able to hold up the dress that I'm purchasing which is quite heavy. I tested it out by putting my dressing gown over it which is quite heavy itself and it retained a nice poofy bell shape. So to the anon that helped me, thank you! I'm now one step closer to my first coord.
similar shit happened to me, taobao shoes somehow got delivered in georgia. I live in canada.

now some hick has my shoes.
Yes. I love Ank Rouge but once the stitching near the cuff on a sweater came loose the second I unboxed it. I also had the same thing happen to the inner arm stitching of a bomber jacket after very light wear, like after 2 wears.

I love their shit so much but sadly I'm pretty much refraining from buying from them now.

You could pretty much just buy some crystal organza and either sew or commission someone make it into a bow shape for you.

Add a bit of space in the middle loop so that you can thread the waist ties through there and tie the waist ties to keep the organza bows in place. Embelish with pearls, wear a messy wig that you're braided, a resin unicorn headpiece, and you're done.

I might actually make one for myself, though I'm more of a matte organdy and clear rhinestones kinda gal.
Dry clean, tell the cleaners about the stain, what it is and where it is. They should be able to get it out

Who even was it
Link to the lolcow?
My friend had an AA table across from the booth this bitch was being a booth babe for. She was so fucking annoying.

Do you think a larger vendor space is more important than more panels and concerts?
The panels are probably the least important but just by a hair, I'd say the vendor's area and concert/rave/main events are the most important because not only are they the places that accommodate the most people but still cater to all interest for the most part- they keep people busy for longer than an hour at the time.
Just my personal opinion though.

Thank you for your opinion. This matter is more personal to me but I want to give it a few weeks and see how I feel about it. I'm going to keep collecting for replacements meanwhile.
I'm going through something similar; someone who used to copy art has become super popular and is now organizing a zine. I told myself I wouldn't buy it but most artists I follow are participating and merch will be included too. I feel so torn...

ILD is nearly upon us! What's your comm planning?
106 replies and 5 images omitted. Click here to view.
Congrats on the job opportunity! I’m sure your comm understands and look forward in seeing you again when you’re all settled.
Do any of you have experience with creating/cultivating a local comm? Is creating a Facebook page and hoping people find it the easiest way?

Yeah, pretty much. You add your lolita friends first and if you get permission from mods, advertise in another nearby comm. Gotta have good interpersonal skills and know how to convince people to join your comm. Setting up interesting meets is a plus.
Yup, what the other anon said. Advertising in other comma in your state/province/country may help. Also advertising in local anime con FB groups - I know that sounds like it may attract some itas but it is a potential place to advertise. I’d also say maybe see if you can post in RC or something, or just try posting about it in the lolita general thread too/this thread. If you have an anime con in the area you may even want to try to hosting a lolita 101 panel there to get the groups name out.
ILD is for fancy meet. Every other meet throughout the year is casual. It only happens twice a year and I'll never understand how girls can't manage to save $50 in 6 months but have money for everything else. I'm so tired of the girls in my comm who don't understand how a luxury hobby works or how to save money who always want nice shit but don't wanna pay for it.

Since the last one had a few bits of Dota sprinkled through it we may as well group all of the ARTS games together to hopefully keep things maybe slightly more active.

The majority of people claiming to have been “bullied” in the community often have just had one person point out something they did. So many newbies take criticism and help as someone being mean to them.
But anon it's easier to cry and call someone else a shitter before actually thinking critically about your own behaviour.
new thread, this one is on autosage
I'm the opposite. I have nice hair but I feel acively inferior to other lolitas because I don't understand wigs and have too much hair to put under one nicely. I feel a bit a ashamed about my lack of interesting hair honestly

Well they did “kick him out” of the band. /sarcasm

I have always wanted to know what happened between them! Kyouka is a bit strange.
First time I come here, my knowledge of vkei is close to none aside from having listened to a fair amount of more known bands ever since I was a young teen.
However, last year I found Diaura by complete chance and was hooked with a single song.. fastforward to now, I love their music and listen to them for hours, despite knowing jackshit about the band members and all. I just really like the music. I was wonderinf if you'd have suggestions of bands with a similar type of music? Thanks in advance!
Diaura is just pretty basic V-kei. Maybe try some of the bands mentioned here so far or scroll through one of the V-kei databases looking for something new too!
I'm glad you found a band you like anon! Diaura has a pretty generic sound that you hear a lot of nowadays. This isn't necessarily bad of course, since if you like diaura you're gonna find a lot of similar sounding bands to get into too!

Like >>10050060 said, just scroll through some databases and look for bands that came around 2010-now. Those newer bands will most likely sound similar to diaura! Other than that, if you watch a diaura video on youtube, the suggested videos usually are of bands with the same style.

Man you're only making me feel worse

l dont know where else to ask this as /a/ will for sure tell me to fuck off or ban me

In the anime Mononoke the medicine seller guy wears a different style of clothing than everyone else, and resources online say it's anachronistic, from a much older period, in the style of animist shamans (also suggested by the facial marks) -- l suppose before or around the arrival of Buddhism to Japan. which points towards the Kofun or Asuka period probably?

If any1 has better info l'd be thankful
