that's where you went wrong

but even then, even wearing a tampon, I have a horrific fear of wearing something like a swimsuit cosplay or leotard or whatever and the string dangling out
>>
>>10140028
I wish I could wear tampon or those cup thingies. I tried a thousand times but I can't stick anything down there, idk if it's vaginismus or something else but it's shitty.

I use a ss to buy from closet child. I just get so confused and anxious when trying to order from them I rather use a ss.

>I resell items I buy off of mercari and japonica for way more than I buy them for. I’ll wait a long time, sometimes years, so nobody catches on and scatter the order items are sold in so I can’t ever be linked with this behavior. You can easily turn a ¥300-500 item into a £20.

>no one DMs me or talks to me much outside of that
>can't say I actively want friends or invite people out myself because that would be admitting I have an ulterior motive outside of simply shooting, and a male photog asking a woman he shot with to drink or chill later in the night would be dipping into "creepy guy with camera who only wants to sleep with women" territory
>I legitimately do not want to sleep with with anyone I work with, or even any cosplayers as a whole, as it seems akin to sleeping with someone from your workplace which is a huge fucking nono in my eyes
>no males seem to want to shoot or book with me so no chance of hitting up males to chill

I still aim and prioritize to give people shots that they love, but when I started I wanted to have fun and make friends while getting nice shots, not turn this into a straight up business where I am simply seen as a walking camera
Feels like the past two years have been a waste in terms of socializing
I still really like photography and want to continue shooting, but this feels like such a lonely, isolating experience despite working with so many people.
I know it's probably my personality as well, but fuck man I figured I could have at least buddied with O N E person.
Dunno if this belongs here or the feels thread since this is a bit of a confession.
>>
>>10140024
Oof that's why I always layer up when I'm cosplaying on my period.
Actual panty with the pad, skin tight safety shorts, then some nude Spanx. Gets warm desu but it saves some anxiety of things seeping through.

>I thought mine was bad but I’ve never bled through my pad let alone all over everything.

You think you have a heavy period but you've never bled through a pad? It's medically not considered heavy unless you go through at least one pad an hour for more than four hours. I can't travel when on mine at all because there's no way to guarantee I'll be able to make it to the bathroom every 45mins. Can't imagine going through with a photoshoot, op is brave.
>>
>>10140165
I wasn’t aware there were medical qualifications for how heavy my period is. I feel better about my flow now. My cramps are crippling though and some days I can’t get out of bed so that still sucks ass.
>>
I told myself I wasn’t going to buy any more main pieces for a while, but I saw one of my dream items for an absolute STEAL. It was $75-100 less than it usually goes for just because it had some tea stains that the seller hadn’t even tried to get out, but would probably come out really easily. I’m torn between feeling happy about getting a bargain, and feeling bad that I broke my promise to myself.
>>
>>10140143

I feel you. I am not a cosplayer in any way but learnt some sewing and hemming for my suits and general wardrobe from /cgl/. The thing is: I love wearing suits or just preppy stuff. I believe this scares people away at first glance but also makes them look with curiosity (especially the girls). But when it comes to creating meaningful friendships on a non-relationship basis, I'm practically a NEET.

I'm a lesbian, which should make cosplay the BEST hobby to be involved in to find a gf that shares my interests. But literally every girl I meet is either polyamorous (which I'm not into), super obsessed with and loud about being gay (obnoxious imo) or already in a relationship. Smdh.

>>10140910
People want to date me, I just don't want to date them. And desu I don't think any of those things are outright judgemental.
1- I'm not poly, and not comfortable with dating someone who dates other people?
2- I'm very quiet, and very subdued about announcing my sexuality, which in my experience doesn't gel well with people who consider it an important part of their identity.
3- Why tf am I gonna go after someone in a relationship?

>tampon
that's where you went wrong

cups are unironically the best thing that happened to me. evidently tampons made me cramp like crazy because most of my cramps are gone now, they stay in place, they don't leak a drop, and if I wanted to I could shoot all the blood out at once by pushing it into the toilet before going on about my day - and I still don't get any leaks after that. I try to tell everyone I can about them because they're just that great. It's really, really hard to change them in public without making a mess, though, which is why I'm so happy I can push it out and wait 'til I get home to fuck with it.
>>
>>10141020
It exists for real.

>>10141033
New England. I’m more of a lolita, though I have cosplayed before and have a general interest in it.
>>
>>10140024
Why would you cosplay a pantyshot-tier anything while on your period? Genuinely curious. I mean I get you don't exactly schedule getting your period and sometimes conventions and the like just have inopportune timing, but do female cosplayers not have a code red cosplay?
>>
>>10141033

Upper midwest

I'm more lolita too, but I cosplayed a bit in my time and once I have more time I'll probably cosplay a bit more. I have ideas.
>>
>>10140179
I got on birth control because of this exact reason mixed with stomach aches and by medical standards a very heavy flow (I do have fibroids).

I now experience little to no cramps for like an hour when I begin my period, and it lasts 2-3 days. It took 3 months to adjust to it, but it's improved my life so much.

I would talk with your gyno, anon.
>>
>>10140143
I have the same problem in other fields. I really think it happens because your first impression is as a service provider rather than a regular person so from the very beginning your relationship with the people you meet is strictly professional, even if you're only shooting for fun. I know it sucks but in my experience it's not possible to make friends if your first interaction isn't on equal ground.
>>
>>10140024

Personally, when my gaping maw overflows, I like to stuff it with gravel, it sucks up any excess moisture. Gravel, natures tampon.
>>
>>10141297
Gravel isn't absorbant at all, try straw next time
>>
>>10140024
I know I'm gonna catch shit for this but next time just tell him that you're having your period and you need to stop. Contrary to popular belief, most guys are very respectful about that kind of thing and he would have probably just ended the shoot right there instead of you having to convince him that you were tired. I realize that it's your body and everything and you don't have to tell anyone shit but just consider for a second that guys can be decent human beings once in a while.
>>
>>10141090
I didn't know I was going to have my period that thay and we scheduled the shoot specifically for 2B so I couldn't go and say "imma wear this other cosplay instead" one day before the shoot. And really I wasn't expecting it to be that bad.

>>10141307
You have a point but I guess I was just too embarrassed. And I don't think it's only because he was a guy, I probably would do the same even if the photographer was female.
>>
I don't really get the mentality that ugly but practical shoes are okay in lolita because pretty shoes don't work when you're going out in nature/doing a lot of walking/whatever. I do wear lolita regularly and don't see it as a costume that should only be worn to fancy tea parties or whatever, but I also do have the sense to realize when certain types of clothing are appropriate and not. If I'm going hiking lolita shoes would not be appropriate, but like... neither would the other parts of a lolita outfit. If it's hot as balls and I feel like I need to wear flip flops there is literally no point in doing the whole blouse and petticoat thing. People act like only conlitas care about matching the level of "fanciness" of their clothes with their shoes, but I wouldn't pair my designer office wear with hiking boots or sneakers either because it just LOOKS BAD and either way it would mean that only my feet are actually dressed for the activity at hand. That doesn't mean I think of the clothes as a costume.

I wear kinda slutty/art hoe-y clothing when I'm not in lolita and desu I'm too committed to my semi-normie fashion to be a daily lolita
>>
>>10141391
Well I get your point, and I am not saying you are like this but some people are just against any kind of flexibility in lolita and they expect every coord to fit in some mold, or clear a checklist. If it doesn't? Then it must be ita. In reality it is entirely possible to bend and shape lolita around your needs without being an ita. You feel bloated? Go for sack dresses. Travelling? No petti is way to go. Too hot weather? Go blouseless. Heck, even sneakers work in some coords. Like, if you wear sneakers with an OTT classic outfit it'll of course clash but I love cute pink sneakers in casual sweet coords.

Tl;dr lolita is not something that should clear a checklist and people who treat it that way come off as conlita-ish.

maybe some people genuinely like taking nature shots and enjoy wearing lolita for different occasions. i have a lightweight petti for hiking and a pair of thrift store janes or a pair of boots (if it's cooler), if i'm running errands i'm not throwing on my meta stripper platforms (i mean..sometimes i do but that's beyond the point), if i'm at work i wouldn't wear tea partie, im in a kitten heel mary jane or wearing a pair of btssb heart buckles, etc It just seems impractical to expect everyone to look perfect as a lifestyle/daily lolita.

Every time I have a fight with my boyfriend I want to cut my brand into smallest pieces.

sometimes i pretend to be a trap online because i like the attention. i'm so painfully ugly and my body is so average, it feels like the only way i can feel cute. now i kind of understand why girls seem so addicted to getting male attention, it feels nice. but also feel so disappointed in myself about doing it, though.
>>
>>10147244
>girls seem so addicted to getting male attention

Girls in general more often than not are looking for attention and approval from other girls. Guys just THINK it’s for attention from them. There are some girls who are thirsty for male attention but that’s the minority. This board is a great example of girls caring more about what other girls think than what guys do.

ntayrt, but you absolutely should get checked out if you think it's vaginismum. It could worsen over time if you don't stop it early.

I think it depends on your country and how bad the stigma against bisexual women is there, and if it's very different from the lesbian stereotypes. In the media in my country bisexuals are always portrayed as hypersexual plot twists who cheat on everyone, whereas lesbians are portrayed as very masculine and kind of ugly. I've been pressured to "choose sides" by people I wasn't even dating. I used to have a lesbian friend who warned others never to date a bisexual because one of them cheated on the cousin of her friend once.

I don’t necessarily want to be friends with her especially because she makes me cringe a little, but I don’t want to be mean to her either. I’m thinking about telling her that I charge if she wants me to do anything cosplay related for her because I doubt she’s willing to pay for all the stuff she wants me to do for her. I know it’s just me being paranoid, but I’m also a little afraid that if I ever did go over to her place, she would murder me in her basement

I hate ita threads and usually avoid them, but I just nearly posted someone I know irl to the ita thread. I stopped myself at the last minute because I don't want to make her insecure about her body. It just really hurts to look at her coord. She's wearing an old and very rare dress that's frequently posted to dream dress threads, but it's too small for her and it looks like she can't breath. It makes me sad for people who are looking for that dress.

Oh please. As a guy, the only thing embarrassing about it is if you start making up cutesy names whilst stating it. (Ruined sexy time with GF).

Dressing cute or being adorable but s one thing.
Acting cutesy is another.
Think about it this way. If someone got intimate with you, then whispered some elaborate metaphor of a body process to try and sound above such processes or simply to assign a “cute name” to it, you would be less amused.
Picture someone earnestly telling you in their sexiest voice they could do “the red devil case today.” In an almost giddy voice.
I don’t hate cute things. Not in fact, disgusting things.
I hare people trying to make everything cloyingly cutesy because they can’t stand soiling their mouth or mind with the idea that their body does stuff.

>>10149079
I would be amused. It would be weird if someone who always acts cute, suddenly got all solemn and serious about periods.

Maybe she was just embarrassed? A lot of girls I know will try to go around the subject because they just don't like going SORRY MY UTERUS IS BLEEDING (although that's what I usually do)
>>

But anon, HE doesn't think it's embarrassing, he thinks acting cutesy is embarrassing. The fact that some of us were taught never to talk about periods and to hide our pads and tampons in dark bags is irrelevant.

Oh sorry, I guess if HE doesn't think it is, then it's alright! Shit, I'm so glad we have men to cure us of all insecurities, reinforced in us for years by everyone around us, by going "but I think it ok"

Whenever I want to find something cute on aliexpress or ebay I always put "kawaii" or "harajuku" before the search word/s and I feel a piece of myself dying every time for succumbing to my weeb self

You find some really aesthetic stuff doing that though

Are you retarded? I have no problems telling my boyfriend or family I'm on my period, but I'm embarrassed of telling men I don't know/am not super close with because of other men saying ewww gross every time the subject of periods come up
>>
>>10149340
I love the element of surprise it also always brings. You are always sure to find these three things in different forms:
1. Something that is actually cool/cute
2. Something that is so ugly it hurts your eyes
3. Something that is so tacky you can't help but love it

>>10149088
No, rather the reverse. She always tries to act and be taken seriously, to be more influential. so transitioning to acting cute and jumping a person, quite unsettling.
>>10149094
Oh no, she's not embarrassed of anything around me anymore. In fact, I think another time she literally said that exact phrase "Sorry, my uterus is bleeding."
>>10149181
Acting cutesy is not embarrassing. Suddenly 180ing your personality without a trigger is quite unsettling though.
>>10149248
D-do you know how male brains work?
It's literally input, analysis, response list, appropriate selection.
Baring those with mental disabilities or lacking sufficient mental maturity, it's a wonder people can have adverse reactions to periods at all, if one half of the population don't really have an emotional response beyond "ohh", and the other is sympathetic to said plight.
>>
>>10149394
That's not me being retarded, that's you lacking either confidence in yourself to be open, trust in the guy to act sensibly, or assertiveness to say you need to finish now.
>>

>trust in the guy to act sensibly
Mostly this. And why should we trust guys to act sensibly when the majority, especially those on the con scene, are socially and emotionally stunted.

I believe that’s literally illegal my guy.

In turn, how do you expect them to develop and display sensibility without at least giving them the chance by talking to them?

Whatever you personally feel about the subject doesn't matter at all when the fact is that for most girls themselves, their periods are a private thing and not something they feel comfortable sharing with others. A good chunk of girls don't just like talking about their periods in general regardless of who it's with. Although it definitely doesn't help that men love throwing around the "girl acts a little snippy, must be on her period amirite" stigma and can otherwise be assholes about it. You will never understand what it's like to experience and what kind of things you have to deal with regarding periods when growing up, so it's better to stop trying to convince girls about how to deal with the subject they've had to live with based on your inexperienced gut feeling. Also you're literally complaining about how your own girlfriend made you feel uncomfortable because she brought it up in a way you didn't like, you are part of the problem you're trying to claim doesn't exist.
I do agree that OP should at least be able to just say that she isn't feeling well or that she needs a break, but there's literally no reason for her to specify it's because of her periods if she doesn't want to, and demanding that all women should be vocal about them because you're so woke is just hilariously ignorant. Idiot.
>>
>>10140024
If the photographer was even remotely professional, you could've literally just told him "hey boyo, it's that time of the month and being in a skirt and everything is getting kind of uncomfortable. Can we do another day?"

But who knows, I shoot videos by myself (not cosplay related) and I'm a dude. If I were shooting someone else though I'd much prefer they tell me that so we can do the shoot another day, rather than them being uncomfortable and miserable the whole time. You look better on camera when you don't feel like shit.

Side note this board is absolutely fascinating. You guys must have the least crossover posters of any board on 4chan.

And yeah I realize that'd be like me telling a female photographer "hey can we hold on a second, I got a boner". It's embarrassing and a shitty photog will make it worse, but the end goal is to get good pictures, not sleep with them. Anyone with even half an ounce of professionalism realizes human bodies can be kinda gross and don't always cooperate.

And if that's a problem for whoever's shooting you, that just means you need to work with someone else. 90% of the work of a photographer or videographer is making sure the person is comfortable while telling them what to do.

Kinda wanna have a one night stand at a con but nahhh.

I wish to dress in lolita, or gothic lolita, dresses, once in my life.
Point is: I'm a (manly) male, so it would be ridiculous to even try without achieving a comical effect...
>>
>>10150348
how about aristo? long 'skirts' aren't uncommon even for men
>>
>>10150216
Or the photographer could use common sense and take a hint when someone says they want to stop the photoshoot because they're tired

Every time I get brought up on cgl, (to do with vendetta), I get a sudden influx of cosplay accounts following me. My social media is 100% lolita with no cosplay overlap in the slightest. It made me realize almost no lolitas are even involved in "vendetta-posting", it is all just a bunch of cosplayers rp-ing. It made me feel so much better about the lolita community in general, and also makes me wish cgl would put cosplayers on another board already.
>>
>>10150368
I only got posted once (afaik. I don't check cgl every day lol) and at that time the only new followers I got were cosplayers too. I just thought cosplayers like my style better than the average lolita does because I mostly post OTT coords..
>>
Just kidding. I haven't worn lolita in years but I wanted to try out RP-ing after reading your post. I don't get what's fun about it.
>>10150375

>>10150359
>I start subtly complaining about how tired I am
Subtlety doesn't help much here. It's going to be pretty much impossible to tell what someone actually means when they say "heh it's been such a long day". And people can typically work through tiredness, it's bleeding through your costume that's a hard stop to the shoot.

But neither of us know what OP was saying to him. Maybe her idea of subtle is mention it once in passing in a very roundabout way, or maybe it means she was doing everything short of saying "I'm so tired I'm going to pass out".

The point is the photographer should make you comfortable (and you should *be* comfortable) with letting them know you need a break or when an issue that requires stopping the shoot comes up.

What is up with these kinds of posts all of a sudden?
Seems like backlash from gulls who can't get away with being crossboarders anymore cause they keep getting called out on it.
>>
>>10150397
I'm the second one you quoted, I was actually on /g/ when I saw a banner for /cgl/ and wanted to check it out. Haven't looked at this board in years, I didn't realize it was 80% lolita
>>
>>10150357
Not really...I'm not an expert in field, so I will take a look.

More often than not, I hate printed tights.

Even when they're made to exactly match the print, they just look like a shittier de-saturated version of the print. The placement of the patterns is usually unflattering and makes legs look thicker.
I especially hate those Abilletage stockings every gothic lolita has, they look like Halloween costume pieces to me. Printed on corset lacing details is just so tacky to me.

Admittedly I don't hate all printed stockings, I think small vertically placed designs can be really flattering and balance the colors of a print, it's really just the busy ones I hate. Usually when I see them in a co-ord, I think it would look better with solid or lace tights or simple OTK's.
>>
>>10150404
I came here because I used to post on /ck/ all the time and noticed this board and started coming here. Lurked for a long time and then started buying lolita.

I don't care if trolls try desperately to cover their tracks, I'm telling everyone about how I started as a crossboarder before becoming a lolita.

Dumb bitches need to stop being so damn gullible.

>>10150133
>Girls acting snippy from period.
Only seriously mentally immature people honestly believe this. Most often it's a silent assumption if said girl is acting highly irrationally and having emotional outbursts at every second stimulus, because those are the symptoms of menstration, and such logic is the most permissive of that behaviour.
>Never understand what it's like to experience.
You'd honestly be surprised. I've pushed my body so hard at times it made all my bodily muscles cramp (yes, including soft muscles like intestines. Nothing more disconcerting then collapsing in a bathroom with your guts writhing and flipping around inside you). These last three weeks I've had maybe a handful of proper valid meals, gotten about two hours less sleep then needed each night, mild hypothermia, nosebleeds, migraines and even visual hallucinations.
It got bad enough that I didn't register that the pie I ate was so hot, it's literally burnt my throat raw.
Imagine what that does to a mental state...
I know pain.
And you yourself will never know the struggle having a male sex drive is when growing up. A menstral cycle is once a month, and generally sympathetic. A male sex drive (roughly twenty times yours at your best) is constant every second.
And everyone frowns on it.
A period, even at its worst with the screaming and crying and haywire synapses is still comparatively an easy thing to manage.
I have experience.
>Feeling uncomfortable.
Periods do not make me uncomfortable. It's a well known biological process.
Acting completely out of character, jumping me, and talking about said process in a metaphoric or poetic fashion with the same kind of sing-song voice from a horror movie in your ear is not so comfortable.
But if you don't act like that, it's fine.
>No reason to specify.
Unless the photographer needs or wants a reason for some reason, like particularly good light at the moment. You don't shout reasons for doing everything you do, do you?
Learn to read, idiot.

I was gonna side with you until this post. What the everloving fuck gave you such a shittastic lack of social skills? Also there's problems for both sexes and it sucks for both. Neither side will ever understand, etc, etc, even some girls are as horny as guys.

Just get a life and learn to be sympathetic that every person has a different boundary and things they are comfortable talking about, and general politeness would encompass understanding when people can't always feel ok bringing something up.

I'm with op. I get super heavy periods and if I know I can't guarantee changing out my shit in an hour I double up using a tampon and pad. I've still on occasion bled through that combo, but never bad enough for anyone to notice, thank god

Correct, but irrelevant. The point was that I know pain. The fact that I chose it willingly should only further validate my point.
>>10151703
Dude, it's not me lacking social skills that's the main problem here. Sure I'm being blunt as all fuck, but the main issue, as with any argument, is the unwillingness to consider the opposing side as potentially correct, or even valid. As evidenced by your default to "Problems for both, neither understands, equal horniness" (Well, actually part of that is simply avoiding argument, but you know what I mean).
Consider the following. None of the points I have made have been either biologically or sociologically invalid, and your reaction to me stating them was opposition. Hell, your response indicates that you agree with my points, but your upset that I was blunt about saying them.
People, be rational. If you look at this through a scientific lens, it's really not that complex

It's not as much the "bulge" as that... it literally falls out on either side of the panty. Like the strip of fabric that covers your lady parts on those cosplays is really narrow.

come on, i'm not gonna act like i didn't blast rope at least twice a day going through puberty, but i'd say if anything, high libido is pretty nice, compared to my extremely average libido nowadays.

Women have different hierarchical structures and different ways of socializing. So even if you wouldn't have any qualms about saying you, for example, had a case of violent diarrhea shits, women probably would be a little more reserved about talking about that kind of stuff.
>>
>>10151955
How the fuck are your labia that long?? Do you tie rocks to them to stretch them? I’m a bit self conscious of mine for having a little bit of a “lip” but this is really making me feel worlds better that there are girls with flaps so big they cant wear specific types of garments.

I frequently browse cgl, Im not quiet open about it publically, but i am with my friends, and I would even openly say "Yes I use cgl, for lurking coords and the BST/DD threads" if asked (and I have even met a few people here!) but since no one else on cgl has caught on yet I enjoy watching people talk about me openly since I am genuinely able to tell if something is vendetta posting or not. I'm such a nobody, with almost 400 followers on instagram. I can dress myself decently well for someone newer to the fashion, but I do tend to ruffle a few feathers with how I present myself. It brings me a lot of joy seeing people shit on what I'm doing since they rarely have anything to say about my coords or my actual looks and that just makes me feel good about myself.

The only thing that makes me
sad is seeing people commenting on my photos wanting to friend me or who have crushes on me who will probably never message me or attempt to be my friend because they're not sure "if Ill be into that" when all I want is more friends (and maybe a gf!). I won't ever respond to any of those comments until it's common knowledge I frequent cgl though lol
