>>10209155Using an SS?
>>10209156Over the USA website. Was that a bad idea?
>>10209162No that’s fine, anons just trying to fuck with you
Was the new Moitie release already posted?
>>10209155Its a lottery so good luck
>>10209280But only on the US site, right?
Theres a hashtag going around Japanese lolita twitter where girls are sharing their coordinates from the first half of 2019, its cute seeing everyone make compilations of their style.
>>10209110very cool, hit me up when they release the black version haha i want in on thatthey should make usakumya lawn chairs next, i'm getting in the 4th of july spirit hahaha
>>10209256The Summer Catherine OP has been, the MMM x Baroque announcement has not.

Anyone have experience ordering from GlitzyWonderland? It's been more than two weeks with no shipping email, and they never answered my email asking about it either
Cthulu Lolita! I kind of genuinely want this
>>10209424What brand is this? Is it taobao?
>>10209402>Release date: July 1st 12:00 JST to July 31st 12:00 JSTI thought that was the reservation date and the items don't come out until Dec.
>>10209424this would be cooler if it wasn't made out of that nasty fabric.>>10209415Isn't that the place lor made her video about?
>>10209426Yes Taobao, the brand is called Tomo Kiss
>>10209424I have the skirt, it's a nice heavy satin and is reversible to a print that is just tentacles
>>10209336Well, what is the hashtag, please post it?
>>10209427You're right, that was the reservation date and not the release date. My bad!
>>10209424Love the idea but the design leaves me wishing it was more....something else. More complex or cohesive maybe?

>>10209443I'm not sure either
I don’t like BABY’s new model. She’s kind of cute but she looks so freaked out in every picture because she opens her eyes as wide as she can and it ruins the photo.
>>10209336Yes, it happens every year. I wish more lolitas would use Twitter over Instagram ’cause you’re missing out of a lot.
>>10209548Selen is precious. Go away.
>>10209441This is hideous, shiny Milanoo-tier looking fabric, and a print you can only see on the black version which is ruined by the MASSIVE BRAND NAME across the crotch?What's the Chinese word for "pass"? Because it feels like that's Baby's primary target audience lately.
>>10209452>Tea Party & Collaboration >&I would assume it's both a tea party and an item collab
>>10209574I was gonna say it looks like a sissy dress lmao
>>10209574Love how salty people always get when brands make something for special occasions or Chinese lolitas. Maybe you should buy their casual stuff if you want them to make more like that, instead of complaining every single time.
>>10209275Angelic Pretty has different socks in stock. There are a lot of lolitas who buy main-pieces secondhand, but socks directly from brand because it's gross to buy them secondhand.
>>10209599We get it, you're Chinese
>>10209110they styled it so cute with the bears in the photo. it's a shame most itabag fags are just going to fill it with spammed tacky, dime a dozen merch for their grimacing anime husbando
>>10209629Why do you sound so bitter about other people liking things?
>>10209636Now I understand their sizing, she's obese as her customers
>>10209630This just in: people on a fashion forum dislike fashion they find ugly or tacky. More at 11
>>10209601>it's gross to buy them secondhand.Sure princess. As if no one ever sells bnwt. As if washing them is difficult. As if they aren't touched by a bunch of people at the factory anyway. No one buys grungy socks. I'm sure you buy used shoes which actually collect sweat that you can't wash. Stop pretending your feet are so holy they can't touch a pair secondhand.
Has anyone experienced their horror garden release to be faulty? Just received mine, and not only the print doesn’t match up but also part of it is faded. Has anyone else got this?Dress aside, I can’t believe my ss decided to ship out this dress in nothing more than a plastic fucking bag. I’m lucky it didn’t get damaged.
>>10209643Here’s another one.
Friendly reminder to be careful with second hand shopping. Found the thing on xianyu. Tag is here, but placement is so weird. How do you gulls think is that real deal?
>>10209689I got scammed on xianyu. Very convincing and high quality replica. Please people be very careful. Have a look at sales posts and see if the tag sits so weirdly?
>>10209646No you’re just dumb. It’s fine. Most brands don’t even make an effort to line up the fabric. AP is the only one that attempts to make it look somewhat nicely matched up.
>>10209642As if you can frequently find sellers who sell several pairs of unworn socks in your size in new condition
>>10209643Which SS did you use?
>>10209709>in your sizeConfirmed male larper
>>10209716You don't know where to buy lolita socks lol
>>10209718You’re retarded, AP and BABY don’t have sizes for socks. I can’t think of a brand that I’ve seen sell different sizes in socks, and I own socks from MMM, jetj, meta, and aatp along with AP and baby
>>10209643I'm getting a Horror Garden either today or tomorrow, I'll let you know if mine's faded. The print not lining up on the seam is pretty normal though.
>>10209643Print not lining up is standard in all of my BTSSB and AP pieces, but I got my horror garden the other day and there’s no issues like you’re describing with the fading
>>10209724Nayrt but most men and fatties do have to be careful of some brands of socks with little stretch or length or they end up with a pair of knee length socks with a faded and badly distorted print. Talls have to watch the length.
>>10209110I'd like an itabag with my lolita-related pins and brooches. I like to collect them but rarely wear them. This is one of the few bags I thought will match lolita well for this purpose.>>10209150Nayrt but I think most of them worn with lolita are not pretty enough so I do thing there are a lot of ita itabags.
>>10209737If you’re too fat or tall that you can’t wear brand legwear you don’t really count as a legitimate lolita imo. I’ve seen a 5’11” girl be able to wear AP legwear just fine. Any taller than that and the chance of whoever is complaining being biologically female drops to near zero and their opinions are void.
>>10209740I love that! Post pics of your brooch collection? I need to get more cute pins, it's a neglected hobby of mine.
>>10209743I don't post personal photos here but now after making >>10209740 photo, I'm looking for a bag that I can do this with, so watch the lolitafashion tag on insta for it. You really should treat yourself to some indie pins and some of the cuter brooches, but watch out, it's a bit addictive once you start! I may not carry the bag that often but I think it will also be a cute way to display them too. I have one photo frame with velvet inside that most are pinned to now. Before that, they were pinned on a pillow.
>>10209741I'm normal sized but some brand socks don't fit me because the print looks distorted on my legs and I have EU size 39 so some of them are too short at the part of my feet, not my legs.
>>10209709Because you can't tell what size it is based on the type of sock and material? It's obvious you don't own any brand socks.
>>10209789I never said I own brand socks, and it's also not relevant. A different anon asked which Japanese brands have different pairs of socks in stock and I'm the only one who gave a useful answer (AP). Also some brands tend to have more socks in stock at physical locations that they don't have in their webshop.
>>10209795Actually I recovered from an ED. It is still hard for me to know if I'm too skinny or too fat so I just tell myself I'm a normal size because I eat normally.>>10209797Didn't get enough attention in the feels thread?
>>10209797wow it must be lonely being the only good looking Lolita on earth
>>10209548the new one is you.
>>10209794AP was obvious. Anon should go to the stupid question thread if they couldn't have thought of that themselves. Notice how they've said nothing this entire time.
>>10209822You'd think so but the only other answer was a normie brand
>>10209643Sunny SS, it was difficult to even get in touch with her>>10209705The issue isn’t with the lining up of the fabric... it’s the print being faded and not matching up with the rest of the print. Jeez.
>>10209643The print not being lined up happens a lot for brands but the faded print is fucked up, man. I wonder do AP accept returns for faulty garments?
>>10209797nice blog post
>>10209840I don’t know either and frankly don’t want to deal with my ss again. She was just late and unresponsive and... well this is how I received the dress
>>10209797>I’m not experienced myself compared to mana and I don’t think since most spergs can’t handle criticism would agree but this is what I think. Has anyone really been far even to decide to use even want to do go look more like
>>10209849Are you having a stroke?
>>10209845Fucking hell anon, you weren't joking. I'm so sorry, what a shitty SS. Thank you for naming and shaming, I'll definitely avoid her in the future.
>>10209852how much of a newfag are you that you don't even get this reference? kys
>>10209452>>10209575I just saw pic related posted on IG and it’s tagged as Baroque. The neckline and waist cross straps look like something Moitie would do. I wonder if this is their collab item?
>>10209908wow this is beautiful
>>10209852>this newfag is in your threads, posting their opinions, shitting up your board
>>10209923>>10209917>>10209866Nayrt but samefag? I’ve been on here since the days of our queen and I don’t get it either
>>10209928it's a reference originally from /v/ so...
>>10209931So it’s just male crossboarders shitposting again? Got it
>>10209934no, you walnut. it's an ancient fucking meme that most everyone knows.
What the fuck did Cotton Candy Feet do to this girl's face
>>10210000Check her Instagram. She's like that.
>>10210000she did that to herself with the creepy makeup
>>10209845She did this to my horror garden too and I am livid
>>10210002>>10210005CCF if you're reading this I take it back, I assumed she was a model for them or something.
>>10210002>>10210000From her Instagram I take she's a cosplayer?
>>10210014>I assumed she was a model for them or something.She is.
>>10210012I.... why... what... it’s more uncanny seeing someone else get the same experience. Livid is one word I’d use. Is your print faded too btw?
>>10210043The print is not faded but it doesn't have the sparkles like the original release had. I can't tell if that's just because it's ivory or not (my other one is wine)To be honest I was too busy fuming to look closely. She didn't even bother to hide that it was a plastic bag. The handle was literally sticking out.
>>10209637But still with no tits, which also explains why the bodices are cut weird
>>10210048I dropped the picture whoops
>>10209845>>10210012name and shame
>>10210059see >>10209837In any case, I’ve never understood why some people think shipping things out in nothing but a plastic bag is okay.
>>10210059I did before, it’s Sunny SS
>>10209110Major need omg
>>10210051Holy shit it’s aggravatingly hilarious. What the fuck. And there was no extra protective layer inside....I’m sad about the discrepancies with the dress. Holy Wolf was beautiful and glittery- so was Victorian Tassel, Radiant Candlelight and Gloria. I wonder what went wrong this time. >>10210062I’m extremely surprised this wasn’t complained about before- my package was ripped open because international shipping is a bitch
>>10209908Do you have a link to the post? This is beautiful.100% down with having Mana (Baroque designer) be the new Moitie designers
>>10210104It’s @bradymary on IG
>>10209797Well...you aren't wrong, regular lolitas don't generally look like the models. And normie fashionistas rarely look like fashion runways or red carpets. But what is RL? My dishes won't do themselves while I sit about dreaming with my perfect hair, nails and pouf. Places to go, shit to do, man. But, I secretly wish we would all try just a bit harder too. Now go take your nap and your meds, granny.
>>10209908Om Baroque’a twitter they call this dress okianawa, I assume they wanted to write down Okinawa. I don’t think this is the Moitié collab as they don’t mention Moitié in the tweets about this new series.
How can one reject WTB offer politely if the dress condition is worse than you expected? Saying that directly feels pretty rude to me.
>>10210051Why am I not surprised
>>10209741>Tfw so tall I'm used as an example of the perameters of lolita
>>10209741>If you’re too fat or tall that you can’t wear brand legwear you don’t really count as a legitimate lolita imo.Why can't you salty midgets just stop with lumping tall girls together with fatties, sissies and men?
Did anyone else get a mail from Jetj regarding their re-releases from earlier in the year? Sirene should have been delivered end of June, but there's some delays. First they said it's because of the G20, but they also mentioned manufacturing.It's kind of a mess because I skimmed that mail and there was nothing about the Tower of Babel OP which I ordered at the same time and which hasn't arrived either.
>>10210327"sorry I forgot to include this in my post, but I'm looking for it in new condition". And edit your WTB post.
The only time I could wear Babyssb socks is when I was under one hundred pounds. Now my BMI is just within the lower range of normal for my height (5'4") and they are too tight; my body likes to store fat on my upper arms, calves and hips for some reason. AP fits fine now, whereas they use to be too loose and Meta is now a little loose, whereas it use to slide down and gather at my ankles.My theory is simple; besides thread choice affecting how the sock holds to your leg, I'm pretty certain brand socks are all made with a different fit model. I don't think anyone is "too fat" for not fitting a certain brand, but considering my own proportions; if you fit literally none of the brands (in socks), you might be considered "plus size" within Lolita fashion.
>>10210327I don't think saying that it's in pretty poor condition is rude. It's only natural some people don't want to buy clothing that has already been ruined.
>>10209741As a 5'11 woman, fuck off cunt. There's a lot of brand shit that's not long enough. Baby and AP have socks with the least amount of stretch, Meta is hit or miss. The only brand with reliably long otks is innocent world.
So..... everyone having gotten their Cats Tea Party, was I the only one who also preordered Cinema Doll? Anyone have news from their SS on whether that's ready?
>>10210457I got my notification today. I guess it took longer than expected but nobody talked about it cause everybody was just caring for CTP? Anyways, I'm super excited to receive mine soon!
>>10210454>boy I sure do love eating bait! how much can I cram down my gullet? let’s find out!
>>10209837>>10210051>>10210065not surprised, she tried to scam a girl in my comm by claiming the yja seller never sent out the dress or whatnot because of an undisclosed fee that seller wanted to be paid off yja (even though it said in the seller's t&c that they only conduct transactions via the platform)i could be wrong on a few details (iirc the fuckery was about a year ago) but i do remember the delicious popcorn i had while reading through the ordeal
>>10210497I remember that shit, it's a small comm and she pretty much ruined her rep here.Or everywhere else for that matter, the way she sent that package was appalling. I would PayPal claim her for shipping damages anon
>>10209314No all reservations through USA and japan
>>10210468Yeah, kinda figured people aren't as hyped for Cinema Doll as CTP but the silence was starting to wear on me. Thanks for the update, really appreciate!
>>10210469Nta, but it doesn't matter whether it's bait or not, since there are enough bitches on cgl who unironically share that opinion. Being a short lolita somehow makes many of you believe you're superior.
>>10210457Not super into it desu. If AP Paris will have a reservation at a good time, will buy something .
>>10210582lol A+ for timing and reading comprehension
>>10210457>got back into lolita half a year after your DD got a rereleaseIt's painful
>>10210632CTP had some leftovers go up on the US site once everybody got theirs, maybe you'll get lucky anon
>>10210457I got my package yesterday, I was more hyped about that than CTP. Got both, but recieving cinema doll was an experience that sparked the utmost of joy. Also my SS shipped it in a huge paper AP bag, so that's cool.
>>10210068I got my black Horror Garden today and it's glittery and lovely. Poor anon upthread either bought from someone who didn't take care of it or it was a faulty dress.
I think I accidentally bought a replica of a taobao dress? I doubt anyone will ever notice or care. But why do they even replicate each other like that when the original was probably cheap itself?
>>10210966Because idiots like you can't tell the difference.
>>10210966Taobao dresses aren't cheap. You think they are, because you're comparing them to $300 burando made from actually expensive decent quality materials. But taobao itself is a place where you can find $10 normie dresses. ToAlice, up until last year, you could do a full outfit for ~$50 (after they opened a branch in Japan the prices on everything went up and now a single jsk is above $80).People make replicas of taobao dresses because it makes money. The quality of the raw materials is so cheap to begin with, why not undercut the shop that is selling it for $120 when you know you can fully recoup all your costs and still sell your replica for $20?
oldschoolers get ready to shit your bloomers, i'm back with scans of rococo volume 1!>https://imgur.com/a/CzVHw12
>>10211046They also replicate really cheap shit though. They don't design clothes, they produce and sell clothes.
Did anyone actually purchase any of the Angelic Pretty Couture Collection dresses from this January? Asking bc I'm kicking myself for not buying one and they're supposedly going to be delivered in August if I'm not mistakenI know my chances of finding my set secondhand are basically 0 but please humor me
Angelic Pretty Tea Party Hamburg Has anyone been to an AP Tea Party before? How much are the tickets usually?
>>10211227Oh fugg what??
How is the quality of milkribbon brooches?
>>10211064Thank you anon!
>>10211267Her wooden brooches are nice and sturdy, but the plastic heart ones were a little wonky in my opinion. Print quality is very clear and detailed, but the fastenings are somewhat loose butterfly clasps instead of pins.
>>10211227>AP tea party in HamburgHans Hummel print when?
>>10211242It's on their news page
In one of Tyler's recent videos, she said there's no such thing as a lolita conventions. Aren't Paradiso and Traumerei exactly that?
>>10212190They're both technically "j-fashion" conventions, not just Lolita. I guess.
>>10212284That's like saying anime conventions aren't anime conventions because they also focus on manga and comics.
>>10212190Ha, shes such a tard.
>>10212190Why do you still watch her? Her content is just stolen content from Rufflechat and 4chan, explained 5x longer than necessary. She doesn’t even hide it anymore.
So sorry for the delay it was my fault, translator-chan already has the next 2.5 chapters ready to go expect ch 7 on sunday.Kitai Fuku Ga Aru - Chapter 6 - Class goals for whom by TSUNEKI Netarouhttps://imgur.com/a/lHPDTwW
>>10212927Thank you so much!
>>10212190It’s possible she doesn’t consider them conventions, but rather “events”
>>10212932You couldn't use that excuse for Rufflecon
>>10212927Thanks, this one hit me right in the feels.
>>10212927Thank you!Looking forward to the next chapter because fuck, it can't end like this ;_;
>>10212927god the people in this one are fucking assholes
>>10213093just me or does it seem like the senior teacher kinda tricked her?
>>10212927Thank you anon! This chapter was amazing.I love how the art style changed subtly to be more horror-esque to match the feelings of what was happening there.
>>10213221Seems like everyone is literally just bullying her when her good intentions are obvious. Is being a lolita really like this in Japan or is this just heightened drama for the sake of the plot?It's also frustrating that, as usual, characters in manga are too shy to stand up for themselves. Can't even explain themselves clearly.
>>10213336"出る釘は打たれる" or “The nail that sticks out gets hammered down.” is a saying there, if that tells you anything.
>>10213349this. japan, like many other asian cultures, is all about collectivism.
>>10213350I think we, in the west, forget sometimes that lolita has it's roots in rebellion.
>>10210377Sirene has shipped for me.
France anons how is the AP party? Please tell about upcoming releases from fashion show!
There's one person with 700, soon 800 feedback who upbids almost every single moitie auction.
>>10213535I thought you'd left off the s accidentally, but no, it's literally just one secret
>>10214533On LM or y!a?
>>10214580That's how dead it is. The anon who posts that is so desperate to keep it going.
>>10214688Explain how last week had something like 10 submissions
Can you ''hide'' listings on mercari? There's an OP I found in the search results but when I go to her profile to see her other stuff, that OP isn't there
>>10214695You posted 10 submissions
>>10214738That's something the admins do.
My boobs have suddenly decided to grow betraying me. Anyone have a recommendation for a real flattening bustier style corset (not one to boost them) so I don't have to buy all new blouses?
>>10215054Corsets will lift the breasts, not compress them. You want a minimizer bra.
I can't. Hhhhhaaaaa. Oh dear. I was going to post this in the AA thread, but I need everyone to see it and get a good laugh before the weekend is over. Enjoy.
>>10215238Is the artist a lolita?
>>10215241I would be amazed if they weren't. THIS feels like actual fan art instead of just cheery picking the FOTM and making merch
>>10215238I saw these, I'm not one to get fandom stuff, but I thought they were cute!>>10215241yeah, their art's also mostly other general kawaii stuff
>>10215238Deku, Sui, Iida, and Todoroki are good.Bakugo, Ocako, Mic, and Eraserhead are ehhh.
>>10215238I'm not into fandom stuff but these are actually very cute and tasteful compared to a lot of lolita fandom crossovers I see
>>10215238I want that Ocako very much. Artist info?
>>10215238HA! Deku is a poofy country lolita. I can get behind that. I actually like these. The dole ring around them is awful, I hate that, but not bad! Eraserhead makes me laugh a lot more than expected. I'm sad there's no Shinsou. They never include the best boy.
So, I was attending the Angelic Pretty Paris Teaparty yesterday and want to talk about the new collection they showed. Sadly no photos, so you have to trust me and wait for them to come true.First something that could or could not count as a Halloween release. It was a chiffon overlay print. An all-over print with crosses, moons, roses, hearts that have 3 arrows in them and the words „Be Mine“ on them. They showed it in pink with the print in all-black and sax with white print. It was my personal favorite and rather casual.
>>10215381The second dress looked like a spring dress actually. Like a standard flower dress, long though, with a long overlay skirt. Can‘t say much about this one, because it looked so boring, could’ve been a normie dress even.
>>10215393Then they showed this print, it also had prominent horses. They showed the colorways white and navy, while both colorways had a lot of navy and white in it. The OP was high-waisted I think. The bodice had these military button rows like Loyal Rosette and the cords like Melty Whip Chocolate.
>>10215399I don’t even remember the dress the model wore, but one had a huge white milky bear. I hope they will sell it and it was not just a prop.
>>10215406They made a casual version of this dress. Which was basically the cut of Horror Garden with this fabric as an overlay.
>>10215411And one University dress I think, not spectacular. Also some haute couture dresses again. I might have forgotten some dresses, but these stood out to me.Sadly no real Halloween release this time.
Gulls, would you sell your rarest/most coveted main piece if you were in need of funds? Or would you try to find any other way to earn some money instead of parting with your favorite piece?
>>10215487It depends. I have an extremely rare and coveted main peace that doesn't look amazing on me despite it having been a dream, I would sell that one if I were skint. On the other hand, I would become a camgirl or other type of sex worker and risk being ostracized from the community before selling Iron Gate.
>>10215490What's the piece?
>>10215238These are terrible. I never understood why some anime fans always wanna combine lolita and anime characters who would never wear lolita and make bad coords for them too, Froppy is the only one that looks ok.
>>10215487I did this a few years ago to pay for a vet bill and meds for my cat and don't regret it one bit. I found it again when I had a proper income for 1/4 of the first price I paid.
>>10215264it's by kittykaya
>>10215238I don't watch anime - why does everyone keep mentioning eraserhead?
>>10215603Flavor of the week husbando
>>10215603I don't know who it is either but im pretending they're all talking about the David Lynch film and that makes the conversation much more entertaining
>>10215606Top tier dad material
Hey guls can you suggest lolita community that isnt full of ass licking, sugar coated comments like r/lolita
>>10215622She looked really decent here. I don't understand why she abandoned this look.
>>10215622what the fuck she's super cute in this
>>10215622i miss her so much
>>10215622She looked really good back then, and happy too. Sadly went downhill fast, I remember her going from normal nice girl to crazy lolcow back then and I still feel sorry for her cause she's obviously mentally ill.
>>10215622Who this from a cgl perspective?
>>10215723Lurk more newfag
>>10215723Google is free
>>10215411Oh fuck yeah!
>>10215620rufflechat has plenty of cold bitches
What's the slouder width or (black) peace now blouses usually? they're not listed on lolibrary
>>10215922Thanks, I decided not to bul it
>>10215381Thanks for the rundown anon.
>>10215609Yea thats what I thought too!! But I was curious is maybe the creator was referencing lynch.Hope theres an episode where they eat a small bird.
>>10215622Is that.....IS THAT!?
Why is Baby’s Sweet Check suddenly EVERYWHERE in the last month or two?
I miss Mary Magdalene! Is there any hope anons?
>>10209845This is a real horror story, not a manufactured one from LL. I have sent FREE dresses to friends packaged perfectly. There is no excuse, no justification for this lazy cheap ass packaging. I am so sorry Anon. JWTFH
>>10210012JFC it is only 6am here and I need a drink. This is a nightmare.
>>10210051That is final, I am going to be an alcoholic by mid morning now. Scary.
>>10216546doubtful anon>>10212927that ending made me so sad
>>10216293maybe because it's summer? idk but it's helping me accept the fact that I sold my op set. at first it stung to see it and I really missed my OP, but now I'm feeling better about it and am no longer grieving lol
>>10215411Were the crosses still gold?
RE: Sunny SS shit upthread Terrible ss, didn’t reply to any of my emails and it was only because I threatened a PayPal refund that she replied. she was also a week late on shipping out parcels, no apologies or explanation
Moitie taking the piss again.
>>10217665I unironically love this. Puritan-kei
>>10217665they need to make money to hire a good designer, rooting for them
>>10217665It looks so cheap.
>>10217638Yes, they were on both colorways
>>10217665I mean it doesn't look BAD, but there's absolutely nothing Moitié about it and they're probably going to charge 20,000Y for it
>>10215622Man she looked great here and honestly this suits her so much. What a shame.
>>10217665A part of me wants this, another part of me believe i could also find something exactly like this on taobao.
>>10217665current MMM could be mopping up if they had better designers who took advantage of the brand name and logo more. like, imagine if there was logo lace or an attached flower clip with the candelabra charm. I don't personally own any moitie but this bonnet looks like some boring axes femme that Fanny would wear. wasted opportunity on that ribbon too. nothing about this is identifiably moitie
Anyone else pre-ordered from Violet Fane's upcoming collection and heard anything? I keep seeing people wearing stuff from The Charming Town series, but haven't gotten any news yet...
>>10215487I'd take a long hard look at my finances and figure out my priorities in life better for the future if I had to resort to selling my clothes because an emergency came up. Opportunistic people are also going to lowball 'emergency sale' posts with fast cash and take advantage every time.
>>10217665I'm not going to lie to myself saying new moitie is quality anymore when I can make this exact thing with shit from my dollar store, and it won't cost me over $150
>>10217895desu I feel like they straight up bought these from a taobao seller and are rebranding them as moite
>>10217665At first I thought it's not that bad, but then I clicked on it and this material is...what even, straw? It looks like a (fake) straw hat. Nothing about this elegant-gothic-lolita-aristocrat-vampire-romantic…Seriously Mana, what happened??
I don't know why you're all expecting Moitie to make an amazing come-back with original designs. You know they still don't have a designer, that's why they do so many collabs. Some non-designer makes these accessories and goods to make money so they can keep the brand alive while they don't have a designer.
>>10218056Hasn't it been a year. What is taking so long.
>>10218062Moitie wunderwelt'ed back in 2016 anon.
>>10218069Time sure goes by fast. And three years??
>>10217938>like, imagine if there was logo lace or an attached flower clip with the candelabra charmCan't tell if you're being ironic or just ignored neo-moitie for the past year. They did nothing else BUT slap a logo or old icons on taobao.
>>10218069No they didn’t.
>>10218062Ask them next time they attend an international event please. I don't think it's rude to ask if they found a designer /who their new designer is
>>10218056They have been looking for a designer for a while longer than this Neo stuff so I think it’s an issue with finding someone who makes what they are looking for. I also don’t think it’s a high paying role. But also keep in mind that tons of fans wanted old releases and so they are doing what is wanted by rereleasing older stuff and making items similar to their early 2000s style. They do seem to be making a point of summer goth wear, this hat is basically the Catherine bonnet thing but different material, which goes with the summer version of Catherine op and ankle socks. I don’t think this is a bad move to make really, I just wish they were a bit faster paced. Doing releases that are rehashing old concepts are fine if they are because making new prints and dresses is a long process. So I’m hoping they will have a new release for fall since they already spent half a year on hyping Silent moon.
>>10218080I would if I could get a ticket.Unfortunately I'm not good at ticket grabbing, maybe another anon can help you out.
>>10218048the issue isn't the straw. straw hats and bonnets are a staple of country and maidenly styling, and clearly MMM is interested these days in a gothicXcountry or otherwise pilgrim aesthetic.
>>10218168''these days'' as if they haven't done straw hats and florals before
>>10215381>another gothic styled Halloween print I just want another cutesy one like Halloween Treats ;__;, from your description it still sounds nice, when you say “casual” was the cut like fancy candy?
>>10218056It's not hard to get a new designer though! And mana's got enough art skills to cobble something together.Just hire someone and get things going.
Goes up on the online shop on July 12th (Fri), around 17:00 JST
>>10218352The cut was kinda like Petit Heart, but not that long. The sleeves were semi see through.
>>10217641Muuh is god, try to use them next time. Sorry about your shit experience.
Does anyone else have the bad habit of buying things just because they're rare?
>>10215406This is it
>>10218867Rich bitch problems.
>>10218867I have a bad habit of buying things just because reasons =_=
>>10216546Is it spooky they just posted an update about Faltetto
>>10218867I often ask myself „Do I like it because it’s rare/popular or because it appeals to me?“. I have many exclusive special sets in my wardrobe, but in the end I wear them and really like them. So does it matter?
Have you gulls seen the update on AP site? Good thing my wallet is safe, but the tendency is depressing overall
>>10218912What do they mean by “a small additional amount” they’ll never get back to business if they start giving away money
>>10218918T b h taking more than 1 year for a preorder is taking the piss
>>10218912>>10218918fuck man, I hope MM is okay. I wonder if it's the same factory that fucked up the VM Classical Doll OP. And small additional amount? hrmmmmmmm please be okay MM
>>10216546They have a whole section on their website about replicas, really makes me sad. I’m not classic so I never paid them much attention
>>10218910Sorry, that's not what I meant by my question. It's usually when I see a rare piece for a good deal and like that other anon said, wondering if I bought it just because it's rare and popular or just because I really like it.
>>10218867I have more of this problem >>10218911, and then the rarity kinda makes it worse, like yeah "it has cats and it's rare, I better buy it now because I can" and then few years later I suddenly have 6 cat dresses and I'm not even really into cat prints (I like them though).If it's just rarity by itself then I'm usually fine, there's a couple of substyles and a few dress cuts that just really feel no urge to own or wear.
>>10218867I honestly feel like that's half of the western lolita community at this point. And probably also the reason why the DD threads became deader.
>>10219013>And probably also the reason why the DD threads became deader.Because majority of people have bought their DDs already?
I'm so happy for Kurumi expecting! Congrats!
>>10219018Lol. No.I stopped posting there for precisely the same reason
>>10219075Doesn’t posting an email help?You know, today I just tried to look if there are some pony bags on sale. Pretty much all of them were sold out, that makes me think how much time it might take until all of them stay at their keepers or get ruined. AP haven’t released them in a while so once they will disappear almost completely. This pretty much applicable for many older things. There’re some disadvantages about being newfag these days that balance retail price CTP.
>>10219069They look so happy with their expensive children
>>10219149nayrt the email doesn't remove the risk. you're missing the point. given some people will buy anything because the items are rare: if your DD is rare, your competition probably increases if you post those items in the DD thread. Doesn't matter if links are sent by email, which would knock out the lazies but that's it.
>>10219018Unless you're seeking something incredibly rare, obtaining pieces from brands, in general, is fairly easy if you have disposable income and you wait around long enough and search enough. I'm not even rich, and I've obtained my DDs by just being persistent and keeping money set aside just in case. With so many brands doing re-releases and MTOs it's easier to get items you missed out on. I've obtained a few DDs this way.I do own a few rare pieces, but I bought them because they were things I really liked, or this rare version was in a cut or color I preferred.
btw how do you guys think is that possible to tell if the thing is gonna be popular by looking at promos before actual release? I guess so, although some releases did surprise me
>>10218867No. Sounds like an excuse for a shopping addiction.
>>10219260>Sounds like an excuse for a shopping addiction.oof you might be onto something anon
>>10218914It’s ok to like something because it is rare and special. I don’t think it’s a good enough reason to buy if that’s the only reason I like it but I do like more of the rare items as a rule.
>>10219256It's usually easy to tell by how many people comment about it on lolita updates. If an update gets more traffic than usual, it'll probably be a bloodbath at release.
>>10219312Bad advice. Tons of stuff end up being more popular for Japanese ppl than us and tons of ppl comment on LU who have no intention of buying things
>>10219339Same for Chinese people. The western comm was hating on that coral reef dress but it sold out in multiple colorways quickly because Japanese/Chinese lolitas loved it.
>>10219256I don’t pay attention to that, I decide if I like it as soon as the first photos drop and contact my shopping service. First on her list means I have not missed anything yet and I have never made a bad buy that I couldn’t re-sell fairly easily for what I paid for it if I decide I don’t want it later. A few things sat in my closet NWT for a bit and just went up in value so I sold them at the market value and made a little extra because I did not love them. It’s just kind of a game, but I never buy things just anticipating that I will sell them, it just happens sometimes as I’m going for what I want.
>>10219370Thanks for the blog post but you didn't answer the question
>>10219436Nayrt, but the question is poorly worded to begin with.
>>10209441Orange, that middle cut and shiny too? Hoo boy. It looks like sherbet but still nope.
>>10215679>>10216052Yes. And now I haZ a sad.
>>10217665Might as well just get any black straw hat or bonnet for summers now. This whole Moitie summer vibe is underwhelming to me. Re-releases, knits, now this? I hope there is at least something good or special for winter since it is a Moitie anniversary year.
>>10210454Innocent World OTKs are lifesavers.
>>10219557What’s so poor about it, man?
>>10218946I remember when i politely identified a piece in someone's haul as a Farutetto replica in the taobao thread, and three anons immediately defended it as being a 'design replica, it's fine, just wear it casually.' Now we're here.
Onto not posting to DD thread topic, it kinda bothers me that we don’t have another way to make WTB request anymore since lj comm is dead. There’re a plenty of pieces that likely can be bought if some western owner decides to let them go, it’s near to impossible to find them just in a wild of second hand marketplaces.
>>10219733Make one then? Could distinguish it as wish list thread rather than the DD thread. People can post their massive collages again, I'd probably be able to find items easier for everyone, win win. I'd start one but I need to go to bed.
>>10219733Some of the facebook buying and selling groups do allow WTB posts, you could look into those as well.If you have posting access to the selling comm previously, you could probably still post on the old lj comm and then have the settings set to send you email notification if you do get messages. Couldn't hurt for extra visibility.I've often wondered if we can that thing where Chinese lolitas post WTBs on 2hand by marking up an insanely high price, then explaining in the title and the description that they're actually looking to buy the dress, not sell it. I have no idea if this kinda thing will fly with the LM mods, though.>>10219735I don't think not having a thread is the problem, they can post WTBs to the BST if they wanted to after all. Probably lamenting that lacemarket allows selling but there's no avenue to buyers to announce that they want to buy a dress. Besides, I've seen different variants of wishlist threads, DD threads get derailed when someone finds a dress and then the person who posted it replied with "Oh I have no money to buy anything at the moment, are we not discussing dresses we wished we could buy? Why can't I join the discussion? This is indeed my wishlist, I just don't have any money, what's wrong with my post? Why can't I post my wishlist?". We've had both wishlist and DD threads up at one point and both got derailed just the same.
>>10219799Plus many to lacemarket WTBs, but I’m afraid those may clog the sales search so it’s hard to find the thing.
>>10219436The answer is that you know by taste and experience mostly, as you learn to watch releases and resale patterns closely over time, but there's still no 100% sure way to know. No one wanted to answer the question in any more detail because it just sounds like a question a potential scalper would ask. Or someone looking to ’dress to impress’. Plus poor grammar just makes the post read badly.
