/cgl/ is a board for the following:

• Cosplay
• Lolita
• J-fashion
• Conventions & gatherings
• Sewing & prop-making
• Craftsmanship tools/materials & tutorials
• LARPing
• Discussing accessories such as wigs/circle lenses/prosthetics/makeup (These must be within the context of the board-related topics listed above; weight loss threads should be kept in /fit/, beauty and fashion generals should be kept in /fa/)

Our board rules are simple:

• Thread content must be related to one of the categories covered in the list above. Off-topic threads and replies will be deleted.
• Singling people out maliciously is not tolerated and will result in a ban. 4chan is not your personal army. The singling out rule applies to vendetta threads and replies being made to attack a specific person, as well as predatory behavior like doxing. Discussing an individual in general isn't against the rules as long as it's done within context of cosplay/lolita/j-fashion.

This is what I'm doing. Without lolita I wouldn't have the motivation to try to lose weight as almost nothing else makes me happy. I can tell I lost a little bit already but I don't have access to a scale. Want to get down to around 125-130 (Was at 235). Not going to tell anyone about it and just let everyone figure out on my own as I don't want to upset my larger friends.

If that happens there's will be blood in the streets and civil chaos.

Discuss. With the closing of some brands, the diminishing quality and radio silence of others, and the drying up and price hike of the second hand market, has the rona officially started the end of lolita fashion? What is your opinion?

Yes, but it's been a really long time. It's also one of the events that kind of led to vendettas being banned. A woman who did adult work as her career was also a lolita. Back then, there wasn't really any porn of actual lolitas; just bad 'sissy' looking stuff.

She did a video wearing lolita, and she got bullied out of the fashion. I seem to remember she ended up apologizing & selling her dresses which wasn't right (because she couldn't wear it anymore to meets or anything without getting harassed). Because no one had done it, it ended up all over the internet.

I just remember it was really, really bad. She was all over /cgl/ and everywhere. It's kind of why you don't see any lolita porn during its height.
>>
>>10701660
I should add, anon, to what I said in >>10702192. To explain how long ago this was, it's when nobody was really doing webcam work because webcams were still EXTREMELY expensive so you didn't really have your major streaming websites or any of that yet. She assumed no one would recognize her, but the person who bought the video was assumed to have possibly been responsible for releasing it where she could get DOXXED. Pretty much, /cgl/ had stills from the beginning and even links being posted. Like I said, she ended up quitting the fashion from my understanding. People were upset she wore the actual fashion in a porn.

That's the only instance I know of someone being bullied out of the fashion.

This are so nostalgic. I was a teen from 2007-2010 so I liked both of these, even had decoden up to my early college days. I guess I followed the 2007 look more (to the best of my abilities, since I was not in Japan) but also looked a lot to 2003 looking older high schoolers when I was in junior high. There was this Korean girl (if I find a picture of her I'll attach it) that was the top beauty to me at the time lol I wanted a shaggy mullet like that so badly, but I knew I couldn't pull it off.

Where can I find clothes like this? Please...
>>
>>10702193
Wa-lolita and/or classic lolita for the first two. The second is mostly traditional clothing with a few modern twists like the corset waist cincher.

For the second, a mixture of traditional Japanese clothing shops, lots of second hand stuff, combined with Victorian goth (EGA). It looks to be based off what people started wearing when Western fashion first met Japanese fashion especially starting after WWII. (That mix of traditional Japanese and old-school European-style clothing which you'd find in a shop for Victorian goth.)

I hope that helps.
>>
>>10702193
I'd be more of help, but I feel a lot of shops that'd sell that stuff won't exist in the U.S. or Europe regions. I feel like there's at least one secondhand shop in Tokyo that really caters to that type of feel though (if it's not closed down).

There's not many U.S. or Europe-based shops that sell secondhand vintage Japanese clothing.

Older is fine too.

IW, Putumayo. I like classic, gothic, oldschool, I don't like prints(with exceptions). From jfash I like nanchatte, more punkish looks and yamikawa.

Recently I bake more, otherwise I like to sew, read, sometimes game (ffxi!) or explore outside. I love to hang out with people.

Friends, I hope. I prefer female friends, lgbt people are fine too.

Romantic relationships, fetishists, people who don't wear lolita or jfash. I also have very little interest talking to guys.

I had to come up with an aproximation from what i could find, does this color scheme make sense?
Beige-ish pink, black, white.

Sorry if i keep asking this, i know the answer is to just not care, but the more i get to know my friends the more i question if they should know.
On one hand they are fairly tolerant people, and i feel they won't kill me over this, but on the other hand they keep on larping as some homophobic football hooligan types even when they are clearly not so into it. I still don't know them that well, but the more i know them the more they just feel like they're lost.
Like the people i most care about i think they won't care, but i don't know if they'll give into peer pressure.
Is carneval really enough to lower the barrier or should i just not tell them? Like my uncle was part of that hooliganism shit back in the 80's and he got off fine crossplaying for carneval, back then shit was less tolerant.

I know people who run high ticket “mentorship” programs. Most of them smile through their teeth and give empty info. I feel like this is the same thing. Martha barely has success so why would anyone want to learn from her? Even then, she has nothing to offer after this course. I feel like she could easily make this into a 1-2 hour Masterclass on how to improve being an idol and charge maybe $150 for it. I’d much rather learn from Julily or another big name than Martha.
>>
>>10702179
Sage for samefag but I take back what I said about the $150. My boss literally runs a free Masterclass that lasts 9 days that consists of 5 main & 4 bonus sessions. The point? To get people to buy into your program that has ACTUAL value.
