Agreed, but as much as I hate to say it, there are a few decent taobaolitas. The quality is worse but it can look okay.

>>10217868
HONESTLY... moitie ita suffers from mostly an unfortunate face, shit photo quality & an inability to pose. If you overlook those things, her coords themselves are mediocre, sure... but the majority of them aren't a total loss. Id go as far as to say Some of them are even ok.

>>10217807
True story: I bought this as my first "Lolita dress" and still have it in the back of my closet to remind me of what not to wear (or where to shop) and how fucking ita I was going to be
>>
>>10217859
It’s not the headwear that is the problem here, the entire coord is a dumpster fire
>>
>>10217849
Maybe the grandma version of Nabokov's Lolita....
>>
>>10217810
I don't think it is an unpopular opinion, just a largely unspoken one. I think brand itas are more rare and the percentage rises with the fewer number of brand main pieces they have in proportion to taobao, indy and especially loliable off-brand crap. There are exceptions, sure. They stand out in a good way because they are just that, the rare exceptions in a sea of itas. But as a rule, I think it holds true. Most of the better dressed lolitas I know stick to brand for main pieces, with maybe a few indy main pieces and very few taobao main pieces, (mainly use taobao for blouses) and they only lolify sparingly, if at all. I don't excuse new lolitas because until you have made 2 good complete coords, you haven't really given lolita fashion a fair try to see if it suits you. And my unpopular opinion is that if someone cannot afford to do that, then this fashion might not be the best for for them. I believe it takes both a level of both commitment and one of investment to look good.

Addition: how many captchas are there now? I seem to be getting quite a few. Not fun.

>>10217840
This girl would be so cute if she got an actual coord together. Hopefully she'll improve!
>>
>>10217813
Going to the decent taobao stores is good for things like blouses and shoes. I'd much rather buy a Taobao blouse and two burando skirts than one burando skirt and one burando blouse.

>>10217859
It is when it's shoehorned in. There's no bear theme anywhere else in the coord.
And like >>10217900 said, it's more than just the bear ears.

>>10217951
I think that taobao can be good for main pieces as well.

I have successfully coorded main pieces before. The issue I think people have is that they coord with low quality items from Claires and such.

I try to balance things out with nice accessories and ensure that nothing looks cheaply made.
>>
>>10218047
Well, are your punk friends into ddlg?
>>
>>10217951
This. I think most of the main pieces should be burando to realky have a respectable wardrobe. And in before 'some people...'
Exceptions always exist but they are very few, by definition. Most of the time singling out the exceptions doesn't also justify subsequent bad attempts. Like 98% of the entire styles of Wa, Qi or Ero depending on the 2% that was good one or two times.
>>
>>10218162
Once again, exceptions. I'm being generous when I say that maybe 10% of taobao main pieces are going to be accepted as good, maybe 2% are ever as accepted as much as burando. If I'm mistaken, please name 10 taobao dresses that would rank up there with burando? I can think of only 2, and I know a couple of my friends dont even agree on those because I have one of the dresses and it's not admired or commented/liked nearly as much as any old burando thing I own. I'm still looking for the second one but after these 2, I will stick with burando.

To be fair, though, there's scores of burando pieces that are largely unknown. I snagged my DD for 88 USD before taxes and ripping on YJapan because it was an unpopular BTSSB release. Heck, the only time I see coords with it other than mine is when I specifically search the print name.

I only have 4 taobao main pieces (and one that I placed an order for recently that will not be arriving until October). I have a little over 50 main pieces and most of my wardrobe is brand.

I don't know if it would be considered "up to par" with brand, but I think Yolanda's Bunny Herbology and Milk Eggshell's Little Devil Girl JSKs are well made in construction.

My other pieces are Diamond Honey and the quality is quite obviously not as great. They aren't terrible dresses, but they don't have detachable waist ties and you can see why they are under $50.

They can still be corded well, I tend to coord all my taobao dresses with brand jewelry and bags.

I went to a con and I got more compliments about a Diamond Honey dress than the two Meta dresses that I wore on other days.

I know this may not make a very good point because people who go to cons don't know about the fashion, but I was surprised.

>>10217810
>>10217925
This brandwhore mentality always disappoints me. There ARE quality indie/chinese brands, just not a whole lot, and they can be coorded well. What happens is that instead of going for higher quality more expensive indie brands, these girls buy the absolute cheapest things they can find. Or they just don't know how to coord at all.

>$300 dollar dress meme

Most of the brand-wearing lolitas I know of rarely pay full price or buy dresses new. On last count, I had around 30 main pieces, about 25 of which are brand, and only one of which I purchased new. Of the others, the most I ever payed for an item was $110 for my dream dress and headbow.

When you're a brandwhore, you either spend a lot of money to buy new or popular items, or you devote your time to finding deals and researching lolita. More research = better frame of reference = better coordinates.

Although there are lolitas who look excellent in Taobao dresses, when you can buy a new lolita dress for under $50 from a reseller on the first page of Google results, baby lolitas tend not to put as much time or effort into learning about lolita, so ita chances increase.

Not saying all (or even most) people who wear Taobao are ita, but in my personal experience, the more time someone devotes, the better they'll look.
>>

>>10217842

>>
>>10218694
nayrt but buying secondhand doesn't guarantee a cheaper price. most brand dresses don't even cost 300 full price but their demand increases their price on the secondhand market. The full Perfume of Wonderland set can go for 700 on lacemarket.
>>
>>10218706

On the flip side though, a lot of decent-looking IW is sometimes half off directly from their shop while on sale (like right now, though I'm not sure if there's still stock left of the good stuff), and sometimes secondhand it's even less than half off.

I mean if you're after a hype AP print like Perfume Wonderland then you're gonna have to pay up for it, that's being really specific. But if you're already talking about buying a taobao dress because it's cheaper but you have to be careful about quality and sometimes get burned if the stock photos aren't accurate -- well, then. What's the difference with buying another brand dress that's also cheaper but has higher chances of better quality? It's like either of them will be Perfume Wonderland, but you have better chances of quality with one than the other.

It may have originally accommodated a petti -- it's the same model as >>10218764 and you can see how humongously wide that dress originally is on Meta's own models but it became really narrow on her. So the dress in >>10218765 might actually be pretty big, it's just the model is, well, bigger than the dress was designed for, I guess.

nayrt, but even though I buy brand, this is not the reason why I do it. I buy the pieces because I like them, not because I want to support a specific brand.

I simply cannot understand this mentality of "supporting a brand". If they have nice products, I'll buy it. If not, I won't. It's not like they're actually doing anything selfless, worth of supporting.

hate to break it to you anon, but buying secondhand isn't "supporting brand" lmao
>>
Buying secondhand does not directly support a brand, but they do benefit from more people in public being seen wearing their items.

I'd recommend, for poor fags, to please consider buying small accessories new from a brand if you cannot afford buying main pieces. They do watch their sales numbers and produce new stuff based on what exactly sold well and what did not. If you see a pair of wrist cuffs in your preferred style/color of lace; buy them. It sends a direct message of "this color, this style!" and you will help steer the direction of that brand's releases in the future.

and before one person can't change everything...
Yes. One person doesn't dictate things. But if you don't vote with your wallet then you can't complain about where things go. Your "vote" does count, you should vote with your wallet at brands as much as you can manage to. Nothing wrong with secondhand, but it's bad for the industry to exclusively go secondhand only.

I agree. I think that the reason you see more Itas in Taobao rather than brand is twofold: cheapness and a lack of a critical eye. Its a “oh it’s good enough” mentality.

>>10218003
I've never minded the heart shaped collars for casual kawaii/goth outfits outside of lolita. Even people like mikan mandarin wear them, they are pretty normie at this point.

I don't know if I'd call it lolita but I actually love the aesthetic of this? all the pinks match and it really gets my goose.

I think this one is cute. I just don’t like her wrist cuffs and the huge bonnet looks dumb. She could also stand some makeup and maybe different tights

Willing to bet no decent looking lolita wants anything to do with Matsuri given the creep who owns (owned?) it if they are at all aware of that story. No one wants to risk being perved on.

this looks really nice though. the editing is even making the shitty BL fabric look good. the proportions are good and this is well coorded, especially with all the floral details.

That's pretty bad poorfag advice. Brands overprice the shit out of their accessories. Nobody wants to pay 45 dollars for a plastic ring that cost 75 cents to make. At least with main pieces you get what you pay for - I sometimes feel ripped off when I buy burando accessories.

Why the fuck would you even go to Disney in lolita? Whether you're in Florida or California it's hot and miserable, and there's a lot of walking required. Is that photo op in front of the Cinderella castle really worth it? Especially if you aren't a local. I'd rather wear shorts, a t-shirt and sneakers so I can be comfortable and properly enjoy the rides.

Low quality wrinkled items.

>>10219227
This suits her better, not that it's good. But I'd rather see her in this style than Ero. She just looks too childish at the moment to properly work with Ero. Maybe when she gets older or learns to style herself properly.

It's still a DOL replica and IDK what else she's coording with. I have many questions.

>>10218786
Hate to be the one to break it to you but con fashion shows are more like glorified fake princess pageants than actual fashion shows. They just choose the best of the applicants, who are just 99% brand fans and none of them are usually even decently close to actual model material. I wish they’d recruit from a local modeling agency because most amateur lolita ‘models’ are way too inexperienced and look really awkward on the runway with little to no modeling skills at all. Anyone who has done any actual legit modeling knows this.

Nope, I don’t have any desire to model lolita, but I get tired of seeing the awkwardness that actually distracts from the clothes. I should stop having expectations for con fashion shows though, they still never get better. But legit question - if these fans want to model, why don’t they ever learn and practice some modeling skills once they are chosen? Not like it’s really hard work or a huge time commitment to learn to walk and turn.

No one said it wasn’t brand, more like criticizing the fact that she just butchered the look and now it seems more like some kind of cheap wedding costume. There are fewer brand itas but when it’s bad, it’s bad.

>>10219345
NAYRT but I have burando and Indy and a couple of TaoBao main pieces too and I do notice that there are more Taobao and Indy itas than brand itas. Not as bad as the ones who try to lolify F21 or HT as main pieces but still there are higher numbers of itas who don’t wear brand main pieces than those that do. I was curious about it so I surveyed a few ita threads and the photo count of those with a brand main piece were fewer than those with a TB or Indy main piece. I don’t count the lolifyers or replica wearers at all because if you can’t even get an Indy or TB main piece, you don’t belong in the fashion, and most everyone agrees a replica is enough to be considered ita regardless of the coord. Interesting to research it a bit.
>>
>>10219242

>>10219356
Chinese lolitas still wear Japanese brands a lot more, I think. Most of them don’t like the cheaper TaoBao stuff, they want AP.

NAYRT, but it has been creeping in since other jfashion styles have become more popular in the west. It makes sense that more are badly done so will end up here under the ita umbrella. Like every fat 20-something white chick in nanchatte ever. Gross, and yeah, itai - so bad it hurts my eyes.

There are hundreds of Taobao brands and a lot of them sell out frequently. Who do you think is buying all those, exactly? Yes, Chinese lolitas love burando too, and they are the ones who influence it most. But their own brands sell well too and aren't seen as inherently bad.

Why would someone follow or care about companies that they're never going to buy from themselves...? How would that make them not ita? What is logic?

You’ll never convince them, anon. That’s the mentality of a poorfag or a newfag (or worse, both) speaking, someone who has deluded themselves into valuing the Chinese interpretation of the fashion because the actual meaning and importance of it being a Japanese originated street fashion is lost on them. Many of us have some TaoBao and Indy, and add some other things in, but the ideas that were the roots of the fashion aren’t lost on most of us who still very much value and buy the Japanese brands we love.

You're right. The only people I've seen defend taobao so religiously are poorfags trying to justify their purchases as "just as good".

Lmao the only people buying taobao are the ones that can't get to brand. Why do you think jetj evolved they way it did? Chinese lolitas are desperate for the status that comes along with owning something expensive and prestigious and are willing to pay out of the ass to get it. You really, seriously think they don't look down on lolitas that can only afford taobao?

Again, you assume everyone who chooses not to pay hundreds of dollars for a dress can't afford it, rather than not thinking that a dress is worth that much money.

I think the problem is mostly brand recognition and importance in different cultures. Brand recognition is really important in Chinese society, and as such, they place additional value on an item based off the brand that inflates the price. Because of social media, a lot of newer lolitas entering the fashion now have a bigger emphasis on brand in their head because of the rise of "young luxury", referring to Gucci/LV/etc. marketing teams targeting youths between 16-28 (rough estimate on the higher age, it differs on brand). But for communities and people who don't value brand identity and recognition as much, the additional name of a brand dress doesn't add to their WTP (Willingness-to-pay). Most people in the lolita community long term can afford to pay for brand items, at least second-hand, but they might not find brand items worth it in price to value because of markup on brand items include the perceived added value of "brand name" and identity, and they just don't fall in that target market. It's not a elitist versus poorfag argument, it's just how the market breaks down and how people in different environments perceive value add differently.

Chinese poorfags exist, anon. You need to look more closely at the weibo and check who they are, whether they're actually choosing taobao or if they're just chinese poorfags, and then whether or not they were paid to advertise the taobao brand.

Even better, track down the *owners of the taobao brands (not the brand's weibo, the owner's own personal page) and check out how much brand they wear.

That's if you can even find the owners. Chinese manufacturers have noticed that anime princess dresses are a market, and some decided to try churning them out like fast fashion. We had a Gone With the Wind cosplay dress posted to LU at one point, the manufacturers can't even keep track of which "anime" we're supposed to be "cosplaying" from. Are you really telling me to take you seriously when you're supporting these people, and you don't even know about this happening?

The releases sell out because there's way fewer made of them, bringing us to the next point -- taobao print releases use print-on-demand tech, their sales are only in the hundreds, if that. Whereas burando sales run into the thousands. The difference is with print-on-demand the ink never really penetrates the fabric, so with the rise of taobao you're also seeing tutorials on massaging snagged threads back into place, something you never had to do with burando.

Meanwhile burando has always printed the traditional way (they were churning out prints long before print-on-demand tech), but the overhead cost is pretty high for custom stencils needed to be made for each print. So definitely brand girls are going to support each other and encourage brand-buying, this superior printed fabric is only available as long as you have tens of thousands of other girls all buying burando.

I wouldn't ask poorfags to support burando, you have other things to worry about. Just don't screech that nobody kisses your poorfag ass, your poorness is your own problem, not mine.

Serious question: is quilting cotton bad to make a dress from? Just like in Lolita, there are high-quality brands in quilting, and the difference between the top of the line and Joann/Walmart fabric is very notable, based on the thread quality and print quality.
I’m just curious about people’s thoughts on that, since I see so many handmade itas in these threads. It’s hard to tell whether quilt cotton is an issue, since the examples posted have many major design problems.
>>
>>10219858
Quilting fabric usually is very thin and didn’t hold up well with a petticoat. Not to mention it’s not ideal fabric for making clothing out of since it’s literally designed to be used for blankets. It’s stiff and wrinkles easy and lays awkwardly on a moving body. It’s just not a good fabric choice to do when making lolita. If you want to be taken seriously you will get better quality fabrics to work with rather then what is cheap. Cheap fabric always looks cheap in clothing.
>>
>>10219857
What’s wrong with this? The bow is the wrong shade of red on her hair but it’s such a minor problem compared to the overall outfit.
>>
>>10219858
I buy both nice and cheap quilting cotton for crafts and even very expensive designer print quilting fabric is totally not acceptable for lolita. It isn't garment weight and won't lay right. It wrinkles like crazy and is too big a weave compared to garment fabric cottons

That’s disappointing. I’ve made a couple of main pieces out of Free Spirit brand fabrics because the prints are so detailed and fun. I’m still working at perfecting the design, but I did make one jsk that I thought turned out quite well. I definitely iron my coords before leaving the house, as even good craftsmanship is obliterated by poor clothing care.

I actually don't mind this. She is wearing this as a wedding dress not as a lolita coord. For some reason on the west wedding attire means bare shoulders and legs. It tends to translate messy into Lolita but not bad for strictly a wedding look. I've seen much worse, and at least the dress is beautiful.

Why do so many handmade lolitas have such shit taste in fabric prints? Like how can anyone look at >>10219695 and think "yes, this looks like the many examples of lolita available to me from brands and well-dressed individuals"
>>
>>10219953
I think one of the problems is that it can be tough to see how a print is going to look large scale. The problem with the above is that I don’t think the print was ever designed to be used “whole cloth.” I’ve quilted with that fabric in the black colorway (which would have been a better choice for the coord, I think.), and I would never use the full repeat for something. Now times that many times over. It’s a very busy print.
>>10218793
This girl, who people have been a little kinder to, picked a fabric that, while busy, is a little easier on the eye, and there are other fabrics to break it up. While the dress isn’t perfect, I think it isn’t terrible.

So, basically, I think that lots of handmade litas don’t really consider what the print would look like draped over a body.
And, you know, shit construction and design.
>>
>>10219953
Homemade lolita usually suffers from a combination of poorfag, a desire to be ’unique’, big overestimation of their sewing/designing skills, shit fitting and draping skills, lack of exposure to enough brand dresses to see what they are doing wrong in both fabric choice and bad construction techniques.

If I were her, I would cut off the entire skirt and make a new one out of a high-quality solid black cotton with more volume to contrast any cheapness of the quilting fabric. I would then take the printed skirt fabric and make a large tote bag with each side featuring one of the print features centered (like the bodice). I'd then take the remaining print fabric and any scraps of the better-quality black fabric and make a headbow or some other head piece that further cements the intentional combination of the two.

Aw, badly presented, but I think she looks cute.
I just went to a wedding the other day and the rediculous trad dress and caked on insta makeup that's popular for brides these days are a completely wrong turn, my raw opinion.
Just buy and wear what you want and what you'll be happier with is my stance on it. She'll probably rewear this dress pretty often.

From a lolita standpoint, this pic fits the thread, and I'm sure she made her mother in law cluck, but she looks happy.

Ita, but she's just a lil dumpling, so I can't be mad.

Because they lead the fashion market. Just like for normie clothes; whatever Dior is sending down the runway this season is going to trickle down into normie fashion over the course of the next year. I don’t buy designer clothes but I still buy vogue magazine and look at the coming trends.

She IS thin. She has a small waist and narrow legs. Ana-chans are ridiculous as usual.

With a good coord and clothes that fit, this suit could actually make for a cute furlita. Better than derpychan at least.

The organizer is also an ugly black woman.
