/fit/ here, in all honesty I seem to get hit on a lot but most cosplayers are a bit too cooky to engage with.
the pants are fine. people can't help that they need glasses and glasses have been socially acceptable for at least 30 years and bullying someone for facial structure is ironically very incel like. these shoes are shit though not gonna lie but t shirts are fine unless they have designs on them

Okay CGLkeks, where is your source for high quality, anime accurate, clothing? More specifically, I'm looking for a survey corps jacket from SnK, but any good shop links are appreciated. Pic not related.

yolanda, akane & alois, honey honey, doris night, ista mori and cheese cocoa are some of the ones I've seen praise for. But even the best Taobao isn't really comparable to something from a brand imo. Plus as far as the cost goes, brand is much easier to sell and get your money back if you decide lolita isn't for you.
This used to be the case, but most of the good deals are currently getting snapped up instantly and it's pretty hard to get a foot in in old school.

It's unfortunate, but there really isn't a good Taobao brand for old school at all. If you're patient and don't want the most popular dress cuts specifically you're better off scouring Mercari, Fril, Closet Child etc. for secondhand brand.
Dear lord, please don't buy this dress. I got it $20 off lacemarket and its still overpriced for the quality.

The back is quarter shirring, so good luck for anyone with a chest. The skirt is too big for the lace placement in the front. I crammed a Wunderwelt perti under it and the lace falling diagonal on the skirt STILL kept falling into its own folds. And petty former fashion design major peeve, the lining is the absolute shittiest, like I'm sure I bought better lined dresses from Rainbow for the same price.

Help - can I delete a listing on Lace Market when somebody gave a bid already? All I see is the “promote” button

Is being skinny fat more acceptable than being out right fat? From my experience,it makes sizing harder because even if it fits you well in most places theres just one area thats like 2 sizes bigger. Bingo wings,muffin tops,saddlebags and cellulite,the true skinnyfat experience.

>at 5'7"
kek ok tranny
you retards post height and weight as if it means anything when it's all about the body shape and where the fat rests. i smell immense insecurity itt.
Reminder cellulite isn't an indicator of anything most of the time and a large number of women have it no matter how much they work out.
Unpopular opinion: i like the softness of skinny fat chicks and chubby girls it has a certain appeal and just looks comfy to cuddle
>inb4 "cope"
i'm just a /fit/ dyke with a soft spot for that shit
Ah yes, if only everyone just tried harder.

I smell a poverty poser.

Many cosplayers and alternative fashionistas create characters to cosplay, sometimes for a LARP and sometimes just for an artistic image. These "original cosplays" combine fashion trends and cosplay techniques, and they range from simple coords with fantastical elements to elaborate handmade costumes. Some common fashion influences include gothic, lolita, shironuri, traditional dress, etc. Although these photos are sometimes entered into competitions, or used to advertise a brand, often they exist just for artistic self-expression.

I want to share some of these fantasy portraits with Spring themes and I invite you to share some as well.

hey! any advice for how to clean this up?
btw I'm an amateur and used hot glue and cardboard
also I'm gay btw not sure if that matters
what is it supposed to be? a breastplate?
With cardboard your only help to make it look better is more paint. There’s no saving raggedy looking edges of you didn’t use a freshly sharpened blade to begin with

Yeah but I save money to buy brand by not having to buy extra shit.
I have no clue why you're being so defensive. The original comment said
>kawaii influencers make jack all for money.
Which is still true, the shitty makeup they send you because you're dumb enough to promote for free is literally just because you promote for free and it costs them pennies.
Not to mention its pretty obvious you barely receive anything from companies-- that shit clutters the fuck out of your house if you're receiving PR from a ton of companies. Stop samefagging while not knowing about what. you're talking about.
Sometimes it do be like that.

Hmmm I guess you're one of those annoying fucks begging indie brands to part with their items so you can give them "exposure," considering you didn't bother answering my question.
I- I just think it's fun...

Think you answered your own question, anon
Idc about newbies buying taobao, what's wrong with that? It's more sad to see them get ripped off or not understand the worth of items. I've had a few DM me asking if x dress/bag is worth x amount and my god they get it so wrong and I feel sorry for them, some even are disheartened when they think that lolita is always this expensive.

If you plateau AND you're still healthily in the safe zone for BMI, consider fasting once a week
Have you tried sending a nude pic? Lol jk
At least you tried, maybe break up with your bf?
I am going to spend about $600 on a coord in the ultimate feminine presenting fashion with the highest regard to quality. Then I am going to ruin that feminine look by presenting stereotypical male. Not shaving your legs draws attention to your body. Lolita is about drawing attention to the clothes to take away attention to the body. Not shaving just makes you look lazy, masculine, and draws attention to your conflicting feminine style against nasty, unkempt legs. They will stick out like a neon sign.

Sounds fun. If it didn't snow here by then most years I'd probably do that. I'm hesitant about painting some bits on my toy Gurren Lagann orange cause a whole fairing kit is like 400 bucks if it doesn't work. But I do like having an animu themed toy

Ok, back with photos/comparison and hopefully my little chart will help get across what I'm trying to show.

I tried to focus on capturing the relative weave tightness, roughness, and how the fabric lays. I compared the LP dress to an older dress in a similar style and the other dress with nicer fabric from 2019 that they're also rereleasing. All 3 dresses are made from polyester.

As you can see in the first row, the LP fabric is so thin you can see the top half of the dress right through it. It also has a rougher texture than the other 2, as well. The middle dress is lined, but the 3rd one is not and still has a nicer feel against the skin because it has a very smooth texture. The LP dress isn't completely unwearable or anything, but the difference is absolutely noticeable.

Hopefully the rerelease version uses a slightly nicer fabric, but other than the shorter sleeve and the colorways it doesn't look much different to me.

Bonus closeup of the lace and buttons from the LP dress, which are nice and I have no complaints. Even if it's definitely the budget version of the Chemical Lace Flare OP that it's based on.
i hate when buttons are just stitched on top of plain bodices without any pintucks or additional detailing, it looks so weirdly wimpy and underwhelming

Just opened my pre-order from January and it's completely unlined, the polyester isn't great. It's very cute and I like it, but for what I paid for it I'm cringing a little (though a chunk of that money was from jumping through hoops to get it).
AYRT, honestly that is my main problem with the quality drop is that the prices are exactly the same despite that.

I get inflation and rising production costs but IW sells out consistently to the point Fujiwara tweeted about the complaints about it, they sell out now even more often than they did a few years ago before the quality dip and they have fewer releases that share a lot of the same materials, so I don't see why they suddenly can't afford to use fabric as nice as before.

Much as I loved IW, I'm not paying the same prices I was 5 years ago for worse quality and less design variety.
