Any cosplayers over 40? The oldest I've met was probably early 30s
91 replies and 23 images omitted. Click here to view.
This. People always complain how cosplayers over a certain age are “creepy” but fail to realize that the millennial generation will be up there in age soon. Millennials grew up during one of the biggest anime waves right when cosplay went mainstream, so we’re going to see a lot more older cosplayers really soon. Seeing as interest in anime and cosplay have just gotten bigger, I’m pretty sure the majority of millennials aren’t going to just give up their hobby cuz they’re over 35.

This is my opinion on >>10469188
so you really get better at ignoring petty shit in general? As I get older I seem to get more and more impatient with it and demotivated. I've lost my passion at all.
Might be my own mental health though, not aging.

Continuation of >>10463171

After VM's successful reopening, now MM announced their return from the dead. IW's latest reservation did really well and they resumed shipping internationally.
Seems like classic is not dead after all.

Let's discuss new releases, share your favourite coords, and ask your classic related questions ITT.

I think it’s the quality of their polyester rather than it specifically being that their dresses are polyester. The quality has sadly gone downhill a lot in recent years compared to the quality of the polyester from several years ago. I’ve got plenty of dresses from them from over five years ago, and some more recent pieces, including in polyester. The quality of the fabric in the newer dresses is markedly lower than that of the older pieces, which is a shame.
NAYRT, but I want to say the last IW release I got was Merry Belle (I could have sworn they did a re-release in 2016-2017, but lolibrary is telling me no) and I sold it quickly because the polyester just didn't feel right. I know there are practical reasons for the fabric shift, but unless it makes sense from a design perspective (ex: a chiffon dress) polyester just makes lolita lose some of that magic.

Non-traditional fabrics in lolita on the other hand, I adore.
Everything I’ve had up to from about 2015-2016 has been fine, from pieces like their shantung satin jsks, like Beluga, which also has their old classic pear skin fabric, to Glen Check, to Pierrot Angel. Everything has been lovely. I then stopped buying things for a few years or so, but then recently acquired their Ornament jsk, from a few years ago, and their W blade skirt from last Winter sale. The polyester has felt really plastic-y and just not pleasant. Nothing like the quality I’d gotten to know ten years ago.
Exactly! It makes me so sad, because at least for me IW felt like the more "accessible" classic brands as a babylita just starting out. I'm glad I got into the fashion when I did, because while most of my current wardrobe is secondhand/older than when I started (when will MM return from the war) I paid attention to new releases as a babylita, and would have been so disillusioned by the quality.

Well, I just sent an e-mail to them with the help of my friend so we'll see what they say!

I'm >>10479464 and congrats! Definitely don't regret it anon, it's beautiful and if it's worth it to you that's all that matters. I think you did the right thing and it is absolutely worth it for peace of mind, I am just finally getting fed up with AP's exclusivity after being in this fashion for over a decade.

I get that back when this necklace was first released it was really limited because that was the nature of lolita, but I do not understand why they don't currently order more stock or do MTOs more often when there is clearly a demand for their products. FFS they could easily announce a new release and take pre-orders at the same time. Then everyone would be happy and the only people who miss out are those who weren't following new releases or in the fashion yet, which is fair.

I can't tell if it has to do with who they manufacture with (who would be limiting the number of production stock allowed for each order) or if they are being purposely obtuse about what sells well but it is so frustrating that they don't pay as close attention to their sale stats as they should. Sometimes they make smart business moves and do MTOs for popular things but I feel like whoever is making the bulk of their business decisions only knocks their 2 braincells together correctly about 60% of the time.

>mfw I already own this necklace and just wanted to get it in another color or two but even something that small and simple is practically impossible these days. Don't even get me started on having to use Tenso or the shitty website check out system that hasn't improved ever.
I didn't get logged out once it went live.

That really would suck. Don't want to start using scripts for releases. How many times does using bots successfully get people new releases that sell out fast?
Got the necklace. Yay to no scalping
oh, i just found out from a youtube video that there is something called the moon festival on Oct 1, so that's probably it.
There's a Chick-Chan auction on LM, and I want someone to bid him sky- high because I'm rotten and want the world to burn.

Are you willfully missing the point or are you always this stupid? I’m mad because she’s a hypocrite acting like she didn’t just try to “cancel” some girl over similar necklaces. Posting her full name, store, and everything.
My wardrobe is literally old school mete, and old school AP, before they started catering to fatty chans like yourself. Weight is the least of my worries.
I’m pretty sure anon was referring to Cadence’s crying about AP sizing in that shitty meme.

Someone’s Butthurt. It’s nice to have a low key monthly thing to see what the community has to offer imo, if you don’t like the people just wait for the festival
Maybe so, but it also gives newbies a chance to make their debut.
Plus it's nice to have a monthly showcase with themes, even if the talent isn't that good. If you don't like it, why don't you enter and show us how it's done.....
LIF is a good platform for beginners who may not be able to get their foot into the door of other events. It gives them a platform. Theres nothing wrong with that :)

I've offered someone 80 for i believe a 150 item that i thought was super overpriced. i did it politely and referenced the previous listings. they countered with 90, and i took it. i still think it was kind of overpriced. i think the main thing you want to make sure is that the listing has been up unsold for a while before you make a drastic offer.
Are all privileged people this unself aware?
Nobody said anything about there not being an in between you moron.
As a few others have said, if you really want to send an offer that involves them giving you a $100 discount that badly, please check their policies and wait a while to see if the listing has been up for a while unsold.

But from your other comment, if the print shows up frequently and you don't want to pay $400 for it, perhaps wait until another one is listed somewhere? (On LM or on a site that ships overseas)

Something I wanted was being scalped at $300, then the next day one appeared at $90, so waiting a bit may do you some good?

> western like cowboy?

Anon I....
The kera ones are perfect, I wish they were in stock! I'll have to keep my eye out for them second hand, I guess. How's the comfort on the mary jane pair?
the comfort is average for western heels but probably lower than japanese heels. I've noticed japanese heels have a higher platform so that the rise is not so steep. whereas western shoes are impractically steep, but these do have a nice thick heel so balance is not an issue compared to normie stilettos. Like I said, the fit is a bit tight so I can't wear socks with them, and the toe is pointier than japanese designs so your toes are more squished. they are made for Halloween costumes, so don't expect supple pleather either. But since they're plain black it's not apparent when you're not holding them up for a close look.
>I used to feel the same way and then one day they just clicked and now I love them.

I partially agree. I know they're a fairly iconic part of lolita fashion but I'm still ambivalent about them after years wearing lolita and I find all of the Vivienne Westwood ones ugly. However, I actually like RHS-esque shoes like the BtSSB Victoire shoes and even those punk ankle strap ones Bodyline made. They seem less like "normie fashion item in lolita" and more like they fit well in the fashion, even though the ballet style RHS are very acceptable lolita shoes.

it's not really. it stops you from being searched properly and then it will get flagged anyways (some probably are already) it's not like the algorithm built itself, anon having that idea means people programming takedown algos likely did.
I'd order 10-15 of each design, you only have to sell 2-3 of each one to get your money back. It's sometimes hard to tell which design will be popular so you might as well increase your chances. If you end up selling out on a character you can always (draw new charm designs based on what's selling and) reorder in a month or two.
What's a good way to word a message to someone who has traced your art and is now selling it? I don't have any evidence other than lining up their art and mine the lines and shading are almost exactly the same so I don't want to come off too harshly or mean in case it's all a large coincidence.
If it lines up completely tear their ass a new one you coward. If they’re tracing your art they’re probably tracing others as well.
Have some fucking integrity as an artist, if not for yourself then for others I swear to god.
You’re probably right. I just have doubts since it’s fanart and the original character it’s based off of is really simple to begin with (similar to Hollow Knight). If they say that they didn’t trace then what do I really have to say back other than “Yes you did”? It’s the only thing up on their store so I don’t have anything that I can use as a “this doesn’t match your style or other interpretations of this character” etc.

Old thread hit image limit >>10370402

This thread is for ouji and aristocrat (aka "boystyle") discussion. "Boystyle" is shorthand for "boystyle lolita" and refers to the masculine counterparts of Japanese lolita and, often, aristocrat fashions. There is a lot of overlap between these styles, and different people use different terms to describe them. We usually just use "ouji" here.

If you want ringlets, look for a "chopstick curler" or a curling iron with a barrel that's no larger than 3/8" (10mm) diameter.
