Cool, enjoy getting sick and dying
My country has not had any new cases and deaths in weeks. I think we're good here.
At least CA is doing a great job for a population of its size.
I'm 100% sure that the US population and # of covid cases is way bigger than whatever your country is.
I'm in California and they've opened the beaches and retards are already gathering there with no masks and no social distancing.

Nah I can't afford to buy AP accessories for secondhand prices like that right now haha. I got the JSK and HB in pink and lav and the tote in lav.

Just need the tote and wristcuffs in lav and pink (or the red x pink one that was recently released in Japan)

I'm very close to considering attending Anime Matsuri this year from all the way from the DC area just to get out of the house after 2-3 months.

I've heard about the convention many years ago but I need to know what to expect.

.... Where? I read the entire thread? What are you even talking about
They link to AM on goodsmile racing website as a sponsor so that person is lying.

No I don’t care about that I meant where was someone even lying about it.
>AM is on the race car
>Digiclub is also on the race car

Oh look its the guys that went into a locked artist alley and stole shit from people's tables and also left their cards scattered behind the tables.

Looks like good smile will just throw anyone on their car that pays for a spot on it.

Do you guys plan out your gardening to fit lolita photos? What kind of plnts would you recomend for a garden to fit the lolita aesthetic?
I feel like hyacinths on the ground and bougainvillea bushes as a backdrop would be cute for photos
I grow vegetables and they’re not really pretty :(
I wonder if you could do a cute classic/farming/country ? It sounds like it could be cute with some gardening gloves or sun hat

I also grow vegetables so its nothing super cute looking hahha.

The weeb pass case I have holds my ID, insurance card, and debit card nicely. Mine has a front and back pocket though, but I'm not sure if all pass cases do.
To me, it's kind of straddling the edge between ita and passable.
The bodice looks alright, but the lace on the hem is a bit odd and pointy - but that's more of a matter of personal taste, I suppose.
The stripes with heart appliques are pretty cute imo and remind me of old school AP.
However, what really stands out to me is the fake waist tie bow on the back - they literally just sewed a bow on the back and called it a day instead of giving it legitimate waist ties. It also doesn't have any corset lacing, so without those or waist ties, you might find the fit to be off or frumpy since there's no way to adjust it.
>the fake waist tie bow on the back - they literally just sewed a bow on the back and called it a day instead of giving it legitimate waist ties.
Oh, I didn't even realize that when looking at it, I think you're right and the fit would end up weird. Thank you for the advice!
I guess this is as good a place as any to ask. I've been out of the lolita loop for a while and I'm looking for recommendations of people to follow ig, specifically ones who actually coord well and/or use unusual color combinations. I don't care if they're pretty or not, just looking for some fresh inspo (even floordinates are fine)
Question about adding additional shirring to dresses. How do I know what kind of fabric to get and how much of it? The dress is made of unspecified polyester, fabric stores are full of different types of polyester...

> most of us don't care what other people do
Go post a print replica haul or coord and see how "most of us don't care." I'm sure you're absolutely right.
Serous question: Do you think your all-powerful judgment will stop people from doing what they want? If not, what do you think this arguing accomplishes?

NTA but plenty of people defended the Misty Sky replica girl and the old school AP one before that, to name recent ones. It's a split issue everywhere, in every hobby.
let's not bitch about replicas in the thread for a site that is known for selling replicas and knock offs for dirt cheap prices?
Let's go back to sharing links for shirts that we also all know are stolen designs from artists but because it's not a Lolita brand no one gives two shits.
To be honest? Because I care about designers, I want them to succeed, and it sucks to see them suffering and having to close shop. Brands and designers have been in a tumultuous situation for a while, but Covid has made the issue so much worse.
When I was new, I was close to buying replicas myself. Saving, budgeting, and prioritizing hobbies was a foreign concept to me because I was young and amazed by all the cute new things I was seeing on the internet. I had no idea the amount of time, skill, and sacrifice needed to create these things - they were just objects to me.
When the replica ban happened on LJ, I was angry and defensive. This was just mean, judgmental girls who looked down on me, trying to tell me what to do - who cares what I do, it's my money, and I'm not hurting anybody, right? But I read all the arguments people made back and forth. There was a post that was something like,
> Even if you never plan on buying the original, and the designer won't get your money, giving money to people who steal from them only encourages them to steal more. They're making money off of someone else's work while doing nothing themselves.
And that really stood out to me. I really loved what these designers made, and without them, the things I liked wouldn't even exist. The idea of giving money to randoms who ripped off their hard work just to make a quick buck is sad. But I wouldn't have come to this conclusion at all if people hadn't debated and argued their points.
I genuinely just want replica-chans to second-think giving money to thieves. Yes, saving up and paying the original artist means you don't get to have 10 ugly lumpy plushes that end up in a landfill in a few years, but those artists put a lot of genuine effort into providing you with not only their original work, but high quality work that will look beautiful and last a long time. Knock-offs won't look pretty, won't make you happy, and you'll end up tossing them eventually because of that fact.
can anyone point me toward ivory/cream color socks appropriate for lolita? i can only find white and black

Is the Shimakaze thong the hardest piece of the cosplay to get right? It seems like when a cosplayer can't get it right they just take pictures yanking it up like this which makes me cringe. What's the answer?

Having the waist for it.

I’m trying to make a costume and figured that while this board is made for cosplaying. They could help me make a decent Halloween costume. I want to dress as season 2 Rapunzel but I have no idea where to find the clothing I need. The hair and makeup should be easy at least. I do want a cosplay quality one while on a budget. Perhaps maybe $100 total. Can you all help me?

Are you a t.ranny?
Quality and budget only clme together when you can hand craft it, and you already have the necessary tools on hand.

Do you have a sewing machine? Have you worked with fabric before?
No and sadly no. :-(
I want to cream in her eyes.

This board used to be fun so let’s get a cringe thread going and what better way to start then Tuna Melt Chan.

Man this just reminded me of this guy I met at a con one year who told me about how his sister used to be an organizer for that con and was generally a very popular attendee at local cons until she killed herself a couple years back. She hung herself from a tree in their family’s yard and he found her. hope he’s doing okay

in that Nigri/Juliet cosplay pic though it was an open joke between her and the hoverhander, since hoverhanding as a meme was just catching on. i remember the dude posting about it on /v/ when he posted pics of his trip to PAX, he also posted other pics and there was one where she and him were actually touching, but obviously it's been lost to the winds of time because this image, misconstrued as genuine, is funnier to people

i'm old. i remember when you could actually post photos of yourself on /v/ and only get called a skinny fag and not have your life burned down by mutts who can't tolerate other people existing

That pose some lolitas do for pictures that looks similar to ballet's fourth position looks awkward and unflattering on pretty much everyone.

Okay, going to say this. I don't live at home, but I lived at home until I graduated university at 22, and it gave me the opportunity to buy a lot of lolita and save up on top of that. I was really grateful for my parents financial help during that time.

I can't help but feel like you are someone who is envious of other lolitas with bigger, nicer wardrobes than you, so you cope by thinking about how they MUST be below you for some other insignificant reason. People who live with their parents for a long time do have hopes and dreams. Parents just help them find their footing, help them save up, etc. Also living with parents doesn't mean that your parents do everything for you (although there are a lot of people who don't know how to cook/clean and are coddled-but living with parents doesn't 100 percent always mean someone is "sucking mommy's teet")
This post just comes off as really judgmental, and I think you're a very envious person. A well adjusted person, with a nice lolita wardrobe they are proud of, would never have to cope with someone else having a nice wardrobe.
Really? It seems like Americans do a lot of drugs and sleep around but their parents think they're pure virginal angels and don't know their child's real personality at all.
you're mistaking popular tv with real life. I'd say as a generalization if you're white bread american and grown, your parents will know less about your life just from not asking, but if you're asian american with conservative parents you're going to actively hide a lot of things from them
Idk, but it is bound to look retarded on anyone without excellent training.
I'm American myself kek. Just my own personal observations.

Nostalgia time! Cosplay and event photos from the 00's (2000-2009). Stories are welcome too. I miss the time where was cosplay.com very active and no social media and instagram cancer like today.

It makes them both look crazy. I think it’s because her current lolita friend group kissed her ass so hard after the initial fallout between her and her friend, so they don’t want to walk back and admit that picking sides in this whole mess was stupid. Not responding the doc is smart. Most of her followers aren’t lolitas or even related to anything lolita, they just want to look at pictures of a stereotypical “goth” looking girl, so they don’t care about this drama.
L has 6k followers and H has 200, it isnt that hard to ignore it since it isnt going viral.

I doubt cgl will let us tldr it, but its fun to read to see how dumb they both are.
Christ, they're both batshit. Glad my lolita friends are normal.
I feel strange about mermaid coords. the two aesthetics don't gel with me.

Drama between these people stays up for days, but mention k8 and....poof
No it isn't worth it. Lolcow talking about it was pretty much a tl;dr.
