Is there any hope for a 5'9"/175 cm woman to wear a kimono?
>>
>>10122812
Yes.
It's been discussed briefly here before, but you still have some options.

The most important thing is for a kimono to fit all the way around, so it can close properly. Recently it's been fashionable to wear kimono with funky heels/socks or boots, so you would wear the bottom hem a little higher to show off your footwear. If the kimono is too short you can do this. You can also go hunting for longer kimono as they do exist, even if they are more rare.

Lastly if it's just yukata you can get one commissioned or do it yourself, drafted to your height. Aside from attaching the collar it is pretty simple as it's just a bunch of rectangles.

this should suit fine; it's the most warm tone out of the three so it should be most flattering.

If you could give tips to your past self who went to a con for the first time ever, what would it be?

I'm going to the first con ever in my life in my country's capital but I'm really anxious. I'm always awful at big crowded events, and the last one (not a con/non anime related) left me severely disappointed, bruised, broke, and crying like a bitch.

If you are planning to get your photos taken in a mini shoot during the con:
Please, PLEASE, bring some makeup powder with you.

Cons, even during winter, can get very hot, especially if you're wearing a long wig. Little dab of powder on face before a photo session does miracles! I have so many photos from cons, where my face is just a shiny pancake with a wig..

Honestly the best way to avoid costhots is just to block them so that they don’t show up when you look for them. They’re always looking for new wats to promote their tits.

They can't. They lack personality, so they depend on memes/buzzwords to hold it together. They also don't hold backing for any opinion they have, saying newfags easier than refuting a point and actually putting effort into it.
That's part of the reason people always claim other people here aren't lolitas (though that's become a stale meme too). Because these people hold no real knowledge of the fashion and just act like catty bitches because they think it makes them more believable.

OUTTA MY WAY, VIETNAM FUCKIN' FUJOSHITS
I don't even remember the seller's name, but I got it off Ebay for $75, I think? It had a sealed canister, the CBRN hood, extra shatterproof outserts, the fully-bound manual, and the laminated deliciously early-90's "quick reference guide".
The old lantern is there because the characters use some kind of lantern, but you never see what it is, exactly, so I just went with something period-correct.

Existentialism punches me in the gut. Who am I? Or rather, who do I want to be?

I've got no plans for the weekend. A girl, who's honestly pretty slow, implies she'd love to go out and sing karaoke at the local club. The question hasn't been properly asked, so I haven't said yes or no yet. Why don't I want to go? Do I prefer to be alone because it's comfortable? Or do I look down on her because she's dumber than me? Or even more paradoxically, do I despise her out of jealousy because she's way more established in the social setting around here?

Maybe it will be more fun if I diffuse the whole thing by inviting more people and turn it into a party... Not sure if I want that either. Uncertainty is a horrible feel. What if I'm just a horrible person?

Nobody expects you to be some fucking Chad most of all not one who has to pretend to be some Adonis. Look man if you really are this mangle of nerves you wont feel right until you actually do something. Mention to friend exactly what the fuck you put here. That you aren't exactly sure how to ask people out and that while you act confident you are actually a phony and that you feel a very strong connection and all that jazz. Worst thing you get is she isnt interested in that way but u ain't getting shit by doing nothing
>>
>>10131258
If you can't relate to her because you aren't on the same intellectual level, then that's a valid reason as long as you aren't sitting there thinking she's terrible for being slow. You can have all variety of friends but the ones you'll connect the most with are going to be the ones you can relate to on some level. It can be mentally exhausting trying to bridge that gap if something (in this case intelligence) is straining that.

And it's not like lolita can't look colourful, so the other elements are even more important to make something more otome than casual lolita.

I was actually about to recommend Brussels to >>10124918! For a traditional fairy-tale atmosphere, all the Gothic architecture, Grand Place being a prime example. For a more fantastical fairy-tale atmosphere, they have lots of Art Nouveau architecture - Maison Saint-Cyr, for example. The Museum of Military History has lots of uniforms and weapons, very inspirational for classic, and also a selection of antique hot air balloons and flying machines. Musee du Tram has antique trams and such as the perfect setting for your Victorian-inspired looks. Basilique Nationale du Sacré-Coeur for Gothic yet colourful looks, Laeken cemetary and church for a more traditional Gothic experience. Park Porte de Hal has an adorable fairytale tower/castle thing.
