SPRING IS COMING...EVENTUALLY. What are you gonna wear when the sun comes out again?

Im going to Vegas this summer and I’m looking for fun, kinda wild clothes for 100+ degree weather.
I’m not looking for like pasties or lingerie, but like crop tops and deep Vs. More “instathot” less “$5 hooker”. But if I search “sexy” I get like. BDSM bralettes and man-thongs. Any suggestions/stores?
>>
>>10120613
have you tried searching for 'cropped'? It seems like an obvious search term but it's what I tend to use most for cropped items
>>
>>10120613
Uh...depends on your taste really. How do you feel about short-shorts overalls, or sheer tops? Pleated very mini-skirts and those multistrap bra things under a white t-shirt maybe? Something wide side-boob or cutouts? You have to be more specific about what you want to look like when you search for stuff. What does your ideal instathot outfit look like?

Try "festival, glam, spaghetti strap, backless, bodycon" if you want something on the wilder side - doesn't filter out hooker but it gets a few less bland hits. Also try sorting by most orders as a filter, hopefully by doing that you'll find more tasteful stuff.

A couple more. Try satin camis, and throwing in words like party or summer when searching V necks. For some reason, my idea of instathot is the rather plain, nude+black+white look, might be just the ones I follow.

I have literally like no tits so super deep v and like scoop necks are like what I find myself trending towards. I have no side boob so the one super-backless sideboob swimsuit I got was uhhh not a good look. If anything it flattened me out even more. Honestly I kinda dig punk/alternative outfits but there’s not too much of an in between with those. I dig the fishnet/ripped jeans combo and outfits kinda like that, the like “fashionable punk” that’s definitely not punk anymore but I don’t know how to describe it.

Is it normal for store pages to have the exact same item with the exact same images? I'm looking for a specific vest and after doing some research I'm left with three different sellers and they all have nearly identical reviews/feedback. It's my first time using the site so I can't really distinguish between scams well.
>>
>>10125463
Yeah, it's pretty normal. A lot of stores sell stuff from the same factories, or items that are replicated on a more popular store's items. The identical reviews thing is a little weirder though.

Don't feel bad. The original artist wasn't paid for it, and you're not paying hyper-inflated second hand prices that don't do anything for the original designers.

If it's unavailable for purchase from the original providers, that's on them.
People would cry and shit themselves if you touched the actual thing too.

i can tell from this preview image that the print's ratio is off, it's too big, and looks faded to boot.

Holy lantern comes in 2 different styles of skirts and has been re-released, both in general releases and as a made-to-order, MULTIPLE TIMES - there's really no excuse for getting a replica.

>>10127055
> original artist wasn't paid for it
are you saying the original designer from AP wasn't paid - do you have proof of this, sounds like a big fat fuckin' lie

>you're not paying hyper-inflated second hand prices
when's the last time you've looked at holy lantern second-hand sales? all the re-releases/MTOs has kept the price at or below retail for most everything.

>If it's unavailable for purchase from the original providers, that's on them.
you're not entitled to steal to own something simply because you don't have the money to afford it, or patience to wait for what you want to buy to pop up either from AP or secondhand.

nayrt, but the print actually isn't faded at all (at least for the red version), the stock photo is just bad or there's a filter on it. Here's a pic of it (didn't bother to iron it yet though, sorry for that).
I'm sure it doesn't compare to the original, but for that price it's decent, especially if it's getting turned into something different.

yikes, tha looks like shit. Seriously don't know why anyone would waste money on this shit when the original dress is everywhere. Plus, I don't know about you, but I'd much rather have the original thing, alter it, and be wearing an altered original instead of this trash. Have fun being a clown

AYRT, while it doesn't look faded it definitely doesn't look as sharp as it is supposed to, and the size of it is STILL off. Why not just wait a few months until AP makes yet another yearly holy lantern MTO?

I'm not even against replicas - but for something as common as holy lantern, that AP has done their best to make it widely available and easily accessible, over and over again - c'mon, man.
>>
Why is everyone acting like anon is going to straight-up wear the replica when she stated she was going to cut it up. I wouldn’t want to see someone multilate an actual HL dress, personally.
>>
>>10128100
even if it's just being used for fabric, it's still supporting the existence of replicas, hurting the brand it's copying from.
Also, it isn't like holy lantern didn't come in a skirt.

>>10126526 is either cheap or lazy (or both) and directly hurt the brand they're trying to pretend they're wearing.
>>
>>10128100
>Why is everyone acting like anon is going to straight-up wear the replica when she stated she was going to cut it up.
Because she said she is turning it into a skirt because she doesn't like the way the original's cut looks on her?????
>>
>>10127704
Wrinkles look shitty but it actually looks better than the stock photo. Print doesn't look "globbier" than the original imho, original flocking doesn't look super sharp anyways. I have a real HL but I was thinking about getting a replica to wear as a sundress or something since caring and cleaning for flocking is a pain in the ass.

USA and my package is at Chicago’s customs, which is apparently known for never ever giving you your shit.

I just checked and even thought it was tracking just fine from China to Chicago it now says “label created not yet in system.” I’ve never had an item in customs before, so Im probably worrying over nothing but is this worth a phone call?

that happens anon, don't worry about it. it's because it was transferred from china post to us post. it happens for every single package I get from overseas, LA or chicago customs.

>>10128121

I'm not one of the other haters but eh, maybe pass on this one. It's actually the waist seam that got me, it looks like one of the messes that newbies post to one of the sewing threads and then you have to tell them they need to press their seams *while they're making the dress, not wait until the end and then the seams are so thickly layered it's hard to press anything correctly anymore. It's a replica, so I get that people have lowered expectations, but I don't see the point of pissing money at buying something you know is definitely badly made *and* it still gets you guaranteed haters if people do see you wearing it.

I'm sort of in a similar boat, have two HL and one of them hasn't even been worn because I never managed to verify if my local drycleaners actually uses PCE solvents or not, one of the staff looked like they'll say 'yes' to anything if it gets a sale for them. I've actually considered clobbing together some freebie stock art so it looks sort of similar to HL (but isn't a direct scan, so it won't be a replica) and send it in to someplace like artcow or spoonflower to get a dress that looks like HL, but is definitely easier to care for.
>>
>>10129647
I'm the sundress anon and that's actually a good idea! I have a design education and I can sew too but I never got fabric printed and I'm scared how much it'd cost to get it printed & shipped. If it costs more than the replica I may not bother.
>>
>>10128377
Depends on the style, trying to use any keyword you could possibly imagine might help. Sometimes related products are way better than anything in the searches. I too am still mostly mystified how anybody finds anything on aliexpress since so many results are just the same thing from a different seller. Dedication or a secret technique, maybe.
>>
How are wowo u costumes and wigs?
>>
>>10129654

Artcow prints directly onto dresses, they're regularly $18~$50 (they have coupon codes and promotions quite often so that drops the prices of some of the dresses). If you can find a dress cut that you like, this seems to be a decent option than getting a replica.

Spoonflower isn't cheap, but you get full control of what you want to make with it.

You can tell I've thought about this idea a lot, I just don't really have the right software and the right clipart to create any of it yet (and anyhow I'd probably start with a Dream Marine-inspired swimwear, which is something I've always wanted).
>>
>>10129955
Nayrt, but I wouldn't recommend Spoonflower. You might get exactly what you paid for, or get bad fabric with a badly printed print with wildly off colors. Check out their trustedpilot reviews, can confirm this was my experience.
>>
>>10130128

ayrt, and I've been using spoonflower for a while. Got a misprint once and spoonflower sent me a reprint foc (they requested a photo of the misprint but it was part of a bundle and they didn't ask for it back). Considering I'm overseas that's a pretty decent response.

What issues did you have? If you don't mind sharing? I think some people get annoyed because they can't brain designing around how the fabric absorbs the ink vs how the screen displays, but really if you test some designs on your home printer, use regular paper with high absorbency, it does a fairly good job of approximating how the print will turn out. If you print at 150dpi it even approximates whether a super intricate pattern will turn into mush due to the dpi.
>>
>>10129699
i’ve tried all the keywords I can think of and it always just turns up the same boring/ugly stuff
might just stick to diy/thrifting
>>
>>10129709
Is there a specific costume you're thinking of, anon? I have three costumes from them. They're decently made, a pretty safe bet.
The gold trim on one of my costumes looks super cheap but when doesn't it on bought cosplays lol. I would say the measurements are pretty accurate, but pay extra attention to them if you're slightly larger-chested.
I only have one wig from them and it's not bad, I had to hot water straighten it because it was packed awfully, but besides that decent enough. Not Arda quality ofc but again, a safe bet.
I'd suggest ordering from their Taobao store if you have the option though, they're marked up to hell on Aliexpress.

>>10133946
You might be able to return, but you'll have to pay return shipping which probably won't be worth it. If the description is misleading/doesn't say that it's not individually addressable, you might have a case to get a partial refund.
