What’s the best way to make cosplaying friends, or at the least just finding a group I can go to a con with?

I ordered a bag and a blouse from lolitadesu during their closing sale. Got a package from them; the bag and the blouse were both listed on the invoice, but just the blouse was in the package. I emailed them about it but haven’t got a response, and I wonder if I will get a response since they’re technically closed now.

I’m really sad because I was more excited about the bag than I was about the blouse

The NWT AP boots I got off of fril for $25 arrived.
I thought that they were the Royal Cirque boots, but the seller said that there were no pom pom clips that came with them. But I still bought the cause, hey $25 for AP boots is a steal.
Open the package and there, in a little baggie, were the pom pom clips.
Best feels man.

I'm more offended at her misusing the word catharsis than scalding a small dog.
When did I become like this?
>>
Whenever I got posted on cgl someone comes and calls me out on shooping. The thing is I don't do anything other than basic color and contrast editing. I'm not sure if I should feel attacked or flattered.
>>
>>10124958
One option is to go to panels/events you'll enjoy, the people you meet there will at the most basic level share that in common with you.

group photoshoot meets are a great opportunity, you don't even have to cosplay. just take nice pics of people and introduce yourself.

it takes a lot of social energy and effort to do anon, but it can have great payoff. my boyfriend and i met another couple that were cosplaying from the same series and we're still close friends almost 4 years later.

i always value quality over quantity. try not to fall into the trap of going for mainstream shit you dont actually enjoy or going the "easy" route through parties. those types of friendships usually fizzle out after a con
>>
>>10125242
Is it face or waist/body shooping they're accusing you of?
Some peoples faces just look kind of uncanny and shooped naturally. It's not very common but it happens. If it's your body maybe it's the result of you corsetting or wearing shapewear, or maybe just having a nice figure and wearing flattering clothes.
Unless you look like one of those blurry shoop nightmares in real life you should probably be flattered.

Whether it was scalding, cold, or tepid, you dont pour bright green liquid on a dog. The dog has nothing to do with her ire other than it barked at her.

Look at her most recent story, she said that it was in the general direction of the dog and it was being noisy. Sure she shouldn't have done it but people are sending her death threats for basically pouring flavored water near a dog

If this was any other animal there would have been no outcry lol

So it's not weird to go to a con by yourself?
Just go to some group events and make friends?
>>
>>10125846
This is such a weird question to me. I'm not ayrt, but every time I am in any other circle the most common advice for meeting people is to go to events where you will have something in common with others in order to meet them. That's why people join clubs, go to the library, attend a festival, etc. Why do you think cons were invented? Because geeks wanted a place to meet up and find more geeks and do things together. It used to be so spread out before the internet so I guess people in this generation are not realizing that's the whole purpose of it.

How about just go to a con alone and meet friends. or maybe join some sort of anime club.

I had a horrible dream that I went on a roller coaster and for some reason I had to get naked for it so I put my lolita in the back of the roller coaster car. I had two coords in there, but as I was exiting the ride the car wooshed off before I could get my stuff, and none of the ride attendants spoke english/were helpful so I lost like £600 of Lolita.

I know the dream doesn't make sense but I woke up in tears.

Today I heard my AAtP back-lace-for-corset-lacing rip. Three loops are stretched and look horrible now. I'm not surprised, since I've heard gulls complaining about this for years, but granted this is my first AAtP piece I'm just... Fuck. I have Taobao with better back lacing construction than this. Brand is supposed to be better than this.

Not all is lost though. I can stitch the stretched loops back to their original shape. I'm heavily considering adding real eyelets, but that might be too much work. For now I've removed the corset lacing ribbon, storing it safely should I ever fix this mess.

I hate dreams about losing or damaging burando. I recently dreamt that all my prints turned out to be replicas. The majority of them don’t even have replicas, but I felt paranoid as hell the day after.
>>
>>10126225
Definitely add the eyelets, anon. I have a meta jsk that uses eyelets on the back instead of lace, and it is just godly. I think it will be worth the effort if the dress is one that you wear a lot or really love. Or if you don't want to risk damaging the fabric and what to do something reversible in case you sell the dress: You can put fabric loops in under the lace at the places you plan to thread it to reinforce it and take the pressure off the lace itself, I have a couple of Innocent World dresses with loops on the back and none of those have ripped yet.

Oh, I hadn't thought of fabric loops even though that's what my Taobao dresses use! Thank you so much for your second opinion anon. Overall I just feel happy that I chose a colourway which has white lacing. That's going to make matching fabrics way easier. Heck, I have tons of white fabric just laying around, unlike white eyelets! Now I'm feeling more motivated to go through with this!

I thought I was doing really good; I got on anti depressants and anti anxiety meds and was getting back into lolita and everything was great

but then I lost my temper at my ldr partner and fucking exploded and set myself a hundred steps back. I always do this. I always fuck up. It doesn't matter how hard I try or how much effort I try to put into becoming a better person and the person I want to be, it doesn't work. I hate myself. I wish I'd never been born. All I do is cause stress and misery for the people I care about yet somehow I still have friends. I think people are just too nice to kick my ass to the curb when it needs to be, and I should be left there.

I was a mistake and I'm still a mistake that never should have been made.

I hate myself so fucking much.

>>10127058
anon it's okay to get angry.. Don't be sad. It's okay to fuck up sometimes too. We all do.
How long have you been on meds? It took me over a year to find the right one, and the right one took about 6 months to start working well. Be patient with yourself.

happened to me one year, but i looked at the outfit i did and decided to say fuck it. i was anxious as fuck while driving to comicpalooza, but later took a couple breaths and relaxed. went in, had fun. met lots of other cosplayers.
i realized that all my friends may watch and talk about all about mcu/dcu/etc. but really aren't into it.

While working on yourself, be thankful for what you do have instead of wishing it all away and wondering why it's there. For whatever reason no one has ever stayed in my life, ever since I was a young child. I often joke about being cursed, but that's really what it feels like. It's depressing in itself, but I stay strong. You can too anon! everyone makes mistakes, what matters is that You ARE working on it. It takes time and effort, and that is what matters.

What everyone else said. Years of meds + therapy and self reflection and I'd say I'm miles better than I used to be, but I still fuck up every few weeks or so. What's changed is my ability to self reflect, to listen to others, to learn how to break down my problems without letting them consume me, and I'm better at managing the spiralling aftermath of catastrophizing mistakes (what you're doing as you panic and beat yourself up). But no one EVER stops messing up from time to time, we are just all working on ourselves at our own pace.

If you have friends then you probably have enough self awareness and make enough effort that it's worth it to them, and I'd guess some probably can empathize on some level, too. Don't give up, just apologize, work with those offering you help and keep moving forward. You can do it!

shower/shave (unless you have people tell you, that you look good with a certain facial growth).
go get cologne that smells actually good (human oils vary between people, take your time to find one that actually works with your natural body order).
hide your power levels. don't over geek. keep calm and smile when speaking to the opposite sex.

Ofc I know what btssb oldschool tartan jumpers look like, and they look nothing like this much more mature outfit. What you’re describing is a very typical casual lolita outfit, petti or not, which will read to a normie as a schoolgirl look because it looks exactly like Catholic elementary school uniforms. And to most people an adult wearing a school uniform is an ageplayer or a fetishist, maybe for money.
I’m not saying you didn’t look cute. I’m sure you did. I just have no idea what kind of job you could interview for while dressed like an elementary schoolgirl. (Did you get it?)

I have an almost irrational hate for a person in my comm, and I know I probably just have salt in my vag but I can’t help it and need to vent.

She’s been making YouTube videos for a little while now (centered on being plus sized) and she admitted in a video that most of the dresses she’s acquired in her closet, are ones that she bought knowing they do not fit her. Some of them she just grew out of over time, which is fine. However, now she’s buying small stuff to act as motivation to lose weight, but that method never works. I can just see a few DDs swaying in her closet throughout her vids, never to be sold or worn.

Idc if she sees this desu, but I hope she knows she’ll feel much better buying stuff she can actually enjoy now and not a nebulous later.

I have a rare /cgl/ related feel. I have TWO! The first one is my year got off to a really bad start because I had tried assisting an old friend in getting his life straight. It ended terribly. I live alone again, and I'm happier. As far as fashion goes, He hated everything I wore, and started ragging on me about how I'm 'looking for attention'. He constantly went on about how people should dress down, and it's silly to wear my clothing around the house. He said people should wear sweatpants or comfy shit around the house. It was hurtful, and I'm happy to be alone without someone ragging on what I wear regularly.

On another related note, I'm going to go hang out with my cute co-worker today!!! He's a bit strange, and he's a good bit older then me. I'm usually not into older guys. We never really spoke much before, but he saw me earlier in the week getting my paycheck. I was dressed all out including a huge fluffy petticoat, syringe necklace, printed thigh highs, and everything. He offered to drive me around to do errands, offered to buy me food, and didn't say one thing about my outfit. He said in a conversation, "Weird is good," so I guess he doesn't mind the way I dress. That's a good feeling. Sorry for the journal post, but 2019 has been rife with bad and good /cgl/-related feel.

Every day you have is a chance to change. Not just yourself, or your views on yourself (which are unhealthy), but the world around you, and your worth. Go exercise. Walk. Bike, run in place, whatever you have to do. Until you sweat. It will genuinely help. Then when your metabolism is up, ask yourself what ONE thing you can do that day is, and do it. Just ONE thing a day, and it'll start to help. I have been there, and am kinda there now.
>>
>>10127496
I do the same, and I disagree that it doesn't work as motivation. I invested that money and having the item right there in front of me is a far better reminder when I'm struggling with temptation. I've slowly been getting better at self control. Obviously it can't be said to work for everyone, but I think it's unfair to say that it never works.

You're free to feel how you like/be jealous, but I think that's stupid. It's their money and their belongings now.
>>
>>10127496
I intentionally bought smaller main pieces in the past as motivation, which helped me lose 40 lbs. It does work at times, it just depends on the person.

That being said, it really just sounds like you’re super bitter about a fatty owning your dream dress.

I try to stay positive about this, and not give up, but my loneliness is eating me up from the inside.

I started university a year ago, excited to meet new people and make friends. Turns out I didn't mesh with anyone in my class and meeting up people from other majors is extremely difficult. No biggie. I tried to go to cons and lolita meetups and I always talk to people and strike conversations and ask for social media accounts after a while to keep in contact. Yet, I've failed everytime to make friends. I feel like im somehow offputting to the people I'm platonically interested in. I feel like I'm self concsious enough, i'm not loud or obnoxious, i listen and comment and ask questions when people talk to me but I always end up alone in the end.

I know better than to expect instant friendship. That takes time. But when I try and try and nothing comes out of it, and no matter how many people i meet i never match well with anyone, it's hard not to blame myself for it.

I went drinking with my partner tonight (in lolita, since i'm a daily lolita) and we're less than an hour in and i'm being made to feel like an embarrassment for wearing my normal clothing because I have gotten lots of questions from the normies at the bar already. I just really want to go home and cry now.
>>
>>10128000

>>
>>10128001
They're being normies. Asking me the typical questions. I actually ignore people asking me stupid questions unless it's actually about the fashion itself.
>>10128002
I don't care about the normies. I like wearing this stuff, and the opinions of people i don't know don't bother me. But my partner is telling me i'm embarrassing and said "You know i like being with flashy people in public but i hate how many people talk to you. No one ever approaches me like that" like really condescendingly while we're sitting at a table in the middle of the bar. It was really embarrassing.
>>

"why should i be okay with my partner being an asshole to me in public because of my clothing"

This is on your partner, not the people at the bar. He's the one making you upset, not them. Tell him he's being an asshole. If he isn't used to you being a daily lolita at this point, he won't be. Point blank period.

Ok so idk if I'm being paranoid but I feel like half the photographers at our jfashion events only post mostly skinnier models than the bigger girls. I don't wanna complain bc they're free and I know the best option is to lose weight and not be a fatass but I feel disheartened when skinny girls in low effort seifukus get more photos than my pretty great coords.

>"You know i like being with flashy people in public but i hate how many people talk to you. No one ever approaches me like that" like really condescendingly
Sounds like he could be jelly of all the attention you're getting. Both in a "oh no, my gf is too popular and will leave me" and "I wish people looked at me" kinda way and he's a salty cunt about it.

>i'm drunk and sad and can't you let me have my one little moment of poorly written release
Oof, please don't be so sad about it, think of good things!
>>

They probably post the prettiest photos and a pretty girl in a shit coord still looks better than an ugly girl in a great one.
Don't take it personally, it just shows their goal is to get clout with the general public rather than appeal to the niche audience of people who look at the clothes instead of the model and can tell trash coords/cosplay from good ones.

You should lose weight for your own well being, not so you can have your pictures posted by randoms.

I know that he's slightly jealous but the problem is is that he refuses to communicate or reach out to anyone? It's a really long story (tldr he lost all his friends due to his behavior, and i got stuck with it) and now that i am actively reaching out to people (like my comm and several coworkers) to hang out and socialize it's a problem. not because i go out too much, but because he doesn't go out enough. I always feel like it's my problem when i'm socializing and he isn't

you can and will meet more people, don't put up with a partner not supporting you just because you'd be alone otherwise.

If you live together, save up a nest egg and move out as soon as you have enough money for deposit + first and last month's rent.
If you don't, couldn't be easier to break up with them, just call him and say "I'm breaking up with you."
Get involved with your local lolita community, join the penpal or make friends threads we have on here sometimes, go to cons, join your local con facebook groups. Don't put up with his bullshit. You deserve to be with someone who doesn't make you feel like shit.

my local comm isn't my cup of tea and has rubbed me the wrong way desu, but the comm i'm a part of makes me really happy (i mean beyond the fact we're all well dressed for a smaller comm, they're all super wonderful people with huge hearts, and id do anything for our mod because she's an absolute angel) and i have some long distance friends i love a lot who are supportive but i have been saving some to move somewhere with one of them. It's awful though because i know if i want to socialize and feel wanted, i have to spend money, and that's all money i could be saving for moving. and lolita is something that helps with my dysphoria, so i tend to buy a tiny bit more than i should be, so it's been a little slow (But recently i've been trying to sell off pieces i don't wear and using the money from those to get new pieces so it sorta pays for itself at this point, and i'm not throwing away my paychecks). but my friend and i won't be moving until august and it seems so far away right now.

I'm going to my first con ever all alone and I'm scared. I'm mentally ill and have an awful time with socialization, loud noises, strangers touching me, and huge tightly packed crowds. To make shit worse, I have physical problems as well like polyarthritis and standing for too long really takes its toll on me.

I'm a little frail bitch crybaby nerd and I definitely shouldn't be going with all these conditions, especially alone, especially considering I'm poor and shouldn't be wasting money, but I already bought tickets and plane tickets with hard earned money (no refunds).

You have to be a genuine fucking retard to vent your frustrations on the dog and not it's incompetent owners who are the reason it doesn't behave in the first place. I can't stand dogs either, but at least I'm not stupid enough to think that bullying an animal will make it stop and not just escalate the situation to something even more bothersome. At the very least if you're such a mess that you can't help the need to physically confront something when you're annoyed then bother the owners instead for not doing their job properly in the first place.
>>
>>10128580
The first day will probably be a little more overwhelimg because its a new area, but once you get used to the convention layout it should be alot less scary. Generally speaking conventions do tend to have big crowds, but depending on the convention theres areas that sometimes clear up a bit. Id find some safe spots when you get there that you can go back to if stuff gets too overwhelming(like a corner or area that doesn't have anything going on). It usually is pretty loud in the convention center though. You might want to bring something (like a good pair of sound canceling headphones) to block out some of the noise if it does end up being too overwhelming.
Is it a large convention?

This is autistic, but when I read Gothic & Lolita Bible, sometimes I save anything unusual or that I didn't know about before, specifically to keep it in my own mental library, and just in case I later read someone repeat a flagrantly wrong idea about Lolita and/or its history.

To top it off, my bf just dropped out of uni after 1 semester, so the train and lunch buddy I’ve longed for for years is no more. Alone on campus again.

It's complicated. I love the loud music echoing through the halls and crowds cheering, I love watching people having fun and laughing, I love seeing such amazing cosplays in person and all the characters I love just casually walking around, the workshops and mini events look really exciting (jojo pose contest, cosplay skits, drawing, japanese, karaoke, concerts), and being in an atmosphere full of things and people that share similar interests really sounds like something out of this world to me.

but I hate drunk/high people and I absolutely DESPISE the alcohol/weed smell, people pushing and stepping on eachother, snotty brats running around with no parents, harassers/gropers, people who just go to point and laugh, people who think axe spray is a substitute for a shower, people who know the place is crowded and everyone's trying to move but still stand in the middle of nowhere in groups, long ass lines and shitty staff who let friends break through said lines, etcetera.
It's really complicated. I'm excited but then it turns into anxiety.

I spoke to my tall buff friend I can hide behind and he agreed to go with me a few hours of one day, so there's that, I guess.

>>10128845

As a lolita, I feel really, really lonely.
A girl I really like asked me the other day-
"So, when you wear lolita... Is it like putting on a character?"
For some reason this really affected how I see myself when I'm wearing these clothes, it made me feel insecure.
It makes me anxious- what are these irl friends of mine thinking when I wear these clothes? Just how little am I understood? What do I say to this?
I know that it is a common experience, but it feels more like a collective trauma we all share- our self expression being highly sexualized, considered comical, weird, anxiety inducing, a costume, etc.

I understand where you're coming from and what you mean to say, but if you and this girl both like each other, it's likely she didn't mean to hurt you and just wanted to understand you, even if the question was dumb. Try not to take it as an insult, instead see it as an opportunity to share something you enjoy with someone you like. Many people just genuinely don't know what lolita is and don't even know how to ask what it is without coming off as insensitive or silly, which is fine as long as they don't actually intend to hurt you. So look at it this way and maybe take the time to tell this girl about the fashion and what you love about it.

>>10129144
go wear normie clothes and try your best to blend in and not be noticed since you can't handle a completely innocent question or the mere thought of someone thinking you're weird without feeling like you're "traumatized"
>>
>>10129160
>Trauma is an emotional response to a terrible event like an accident, rape or natural disaster. Immediately after the event, shock and denial are typical. Longer term reactions include unpredictable emotions, flashbacks, strained relationships and even physical symptoms like headaches or nausea.
Nayrt but it upsets some people to see trauma used in a way that cheapens the meaning of the term. It makes people take actually traumatized people not seriously. Like how people smirk at the word trigger, when it's a real thing you want to avoid at all cost, because retards used to to refer to anything that mildly annoys them.

£200. That's enough to buy at least two additional brand dresses on lace market. After that i have been requesting for my packages to be marked down so i could pay less, but I am scared i'll get rekt whilst doing that. I can't fucking wait to move the the US so i can escape this bullshit.

Color contacts typically don't make or break a cosplay, depending on the character, so you're probably fine.

Why can't you wear glasses over your colored contacts? I can wear sunglasses over my prescription contacts.

I really can't wear cosplay contacts because fuck wearing glasses in public, I look like the biggest nerd.

>Highly sexualized

Lolita is just about looking cute and elegant, it has nothing to do with any weird or gross shit. Try wearing rockabilly if you want people to know you're damaged goods

That fb feel when you give advice to either a gross furry or disastrous Schrodinger's sissy.
You know you just wasted another part of your life you'll never get back, and all you can blame is yourself for your suffering.

Anon meant that our self expression via the fashion is highly sexualized by outsiders, which it is, not that the fashion or that wearing it is sexual.

Depends on the dress, not whether there's a print or not.

Most old solids aren’t worth full price nearly ten years later, with minor exceptions of rare dresses.

agreed anon it's embarrassing as fuck to watch people sell and buy the same old school dresses that ive bought from japan for literally 3-5 times cheaper. Unless it's the rereleased versions or an incredibly rare print no old school dresses should really cost more than 100 dollars. It's a 10-20 year old dress that's probably never been washed why would i want to spend my hard earned money on that. No wonder people are just sticking to buying new because all the older pieces that used to be dirt cheap are the same price if not more expensive just because "it's old uwu"

Anon everything you listed is normal. No one likes those things, you're not some special sheltered snowflake to think the way you do. That's literally just disliking people with no manners and everyone respectable feels the same way you do about them. Sad truth is that those people can't always be avoided, even outside conventions, so all you can really do is go and see how it goes. Chances are you won't even encounter that much bad behavior, and even if you do, cons are usually big enough for you to just turn around and ignore it until it goes away.

No one was talking about decades old dresses.

So, how old is too old to get 200 out of your solid dress?
A dress doesn't have to be rare to ask for 200+, but it does depend on the dress down to an individual level.

>I'm ugly so maybe they'd start thinking I'm trans too
That's hilarious and sad and I know exactly what you mean.

I'm gay on top of being unattractive, which I keep hidden. I'm paranoid my friends would feel uncomfortable. They'd think I'm trying to date them when I really just want to be friends. It doesn't occur to me that someone might love me back, so it's easy to not have ulterior motives, I genuinely simply enjoy hanging out.

I've never met another lesbian (or maybe all hide it), so I don't know how people think of them. Do they make you uncomfortable?
>>

What kind of sick? I think a lot of them are genuinely delusional or just depressed, not necessarily larping for likes.

>>10129941
Why would a mentally healthy person not want to get a job?

>>10130202

>>10129941
>myalgic encephalomyelitis
I actually have that, it's hell on earth. If I don't get welfare in the next half couple months I'm literally going homeless and nobody in the bureaucracy knows that shit exist so I don't get certified no matter what my unicorn specialist writes them lmao
If I wasn't to tired to deal with anything I'd probably off myself. Thinking about what my life was like before I got sick is so depressing.

I ordered circle lenses and they entered America on the 15th... haven't gotten an update on tracking since..

Have they been seized?!?
Please ease my mind..
>>
>>10130240
What were they shipped by? I got my lenses seized once, and it said so on the tracking, something like "Held for inspection by Customs". I didn't get in trouble, they just sat in limbo and got reshipped back to the seller. I told the company and they reshipped the package under faster shipping and it went through fine.

Keep checking the tracking diligently. Is there an expected arrival date still? When mine got caught, the expected arrival date disappeared. If yours is stuck, it should tell you.

fuck fellas I have the worst fucking crippling insecurity about this one girl I like, it's legitimately KILLING me. I did the dumb thing and got trashed with her while she only had a beer and ended up baring most of my insecurities about dating and girls (which revolved around me wanting a GF that was into the same hobbies that I was, but that meant that I had to get to know them, and at that point I didn't want to lose them as friends if they thought I was a creep for asking them out)

now i'm not even sure if I can ask to date her since she knows i'm not the confident chad I look and act like but actually a mangle of nerves internally. seriously, I have no issue acting normally around girls but I have literally 0 experience flirting and asking people out KILLS me. people expecting me to be a total chad from my looks and faux confidence is fantastic until I actually have to prove it.

also, good (actually /CGL/ related) feel, I finished a cosplay for an upcoming con, hooray! the technique needed took me a fat 3 weeks to figure out despite looking like nothing, but I got another cosplay in the pipeline because I finished playing a game and I really liked a character from it. Hopefully I'll get it done in time for April's con!

All my recent coords have been very weird and mismatched and I have just had to admit to myself that I like them that way.

this sort of thing always makes me feel so strange because I never acted anything like that.

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.
