Oh yeah, Michelle, what a throwback. She was cringe but I do miss her online presence. Too bad she was never actually the deathly thin anachan queen she wanted to be, she just did those weird poses in selfies to make it look like she was.
>>
>>10610344
She looks like the size anachans want to stop at but never do cause they always see themselves as fat.

Like other than her wrists being a bit bony here she doesn't look more than a kinda lanky person, but even so, anorexia is a mental illness; she was probably still not treating her body well to even be only moderately thin

I know I've seen a few maps related to this. Here's the first one I could find:
https://aspe.hhs.gov/pdf-report/vaccine-hesitancy

Going by that map, it looks like the northwest flyover states are the most "vaccine hesitant", followed by the southeast (which includes Georgia).
Since you brought it up, pretty much all of the states in those areas are red states, so there is certainly some correlation there.
But I guess Georgia is considered a blue state now, so I digress.

How do you guys attend cons when you also need to go to work on the weekdays? Do you take time off? Do you call in sick? What about for Anime Expo? Do you just skip Thu/Fri/Mon con days all together?
>>
>>10610374
The discussion was on anti vax. Focus.

But, Vaccine hesitancy sure does sound like a word mincing, like they want to have a statistic to infer something without stating it explicitly.

Besides, did you actually read the methodology? All it does is ask if it's available if somebody would get it. It doesn't actually offer any insight as to why answers would be one way or the other, and even says so in its own study notes.

It seems like a pretty fucking useless endeavor to try to pull meaning from that shallow shit.

Bump for Anime Fest. Just learned about this one a few hours ago, and it's been added to my list of cons to attend this year. Anime Midwest was my top contender for the late June and early July period, but I doubt they'll go through with it, so this is a nice alternative. Glad I don't have to wait till September for something (fairly) close by like Mizucon, which I have no expectations for, given how small their location is.

Nayrt but lots of pre-internet fashion styles got their names that way, including punk and manba.
>>
>>10609965
hey there! my texture also varies between 3b/3c depending if i air dry or plop. keep in mind that with all these styles, my bangs are straightened and not tied up! my go-to is half up/half down styles, top being either pigtails or just a ponytail. sometimes i do space buns, twin braids, or just scrunch my curls w/ product to give a lot of volume with my straight bangs. they're all relatively quick styles and look schoolgirl-y enough to me. i do prefer letting my hair air dry, as my curls are looser and look a little beachier that way. hope it helps!

Yeah great but lolita's name history isn't like that, you have a giant page on that on the origin in its jp wikipedia page (and yes, it's the book, but the interpretation of it is different in jp).
>>
>>10610314
in both of your exampes the insults weren't the origins of the fashions tho whereas mass-produced wota and similar are just stereotypes associated with pre-existing styles, just like how carnivore kei/肉食系 is associated with gyaru styles despite just being a term for sex craving people.

Thank you so much! This helps a lot, I love these ideas! I didn't think of straightening my bangs before, could really be a gamechanger

I feel like all those things that say women are more gay than men naturally are not taking into account the fact that women are being exposed to media which is usually presented with a "straight male gaze" that will influence their ideas of sexuality beyond where they may originally start at, and aren't taking into account that bisexuality or homosexuality are much harder to admit to for men than women because of toxic social pressure on men to equate heterosexuality with masculinity.
>>
>>10610353
>The vast majority of women almost never actually do the "its fine cause we're both girls teehee" shit
of course, i'm just saying it does definitely happen though. I think some women see it in anime and think its totally ok to do irl too.

>>10610357
I think its just women are more attractive than men. I saw a reddit post asking if men ever get complimented for their looks, and thousands of responses say no. And then there was the okcupid poll that showed men were rated way lower in attractiveness than women.
When your average man spends no time on self-care and looks like a slob, and your average woman actually puts at least *some* time into self care, then naturally, more people will generally find women more attractive.
There is definitely toxic masculinity/societal views mixed in there with being an issue too, but seriously, Idk if I have ever met a bi person who said they find more men attractive than women. I'm a man and its incredible the how little self care I have to put into my self to have women compliment me. I'm always confused by it and then they describe how their bf or male friends take no care of themselves.
Why would you limit yourself to men when there are just so many more women who actually take care of themselves?
>>
>>10610362
>Why would you limit yourself to men when there are just so many more women who actually take care of themselves?

Because I really just prefer dick even though I find women attractive and men have lower standards and my childhood trauma, mental illness, and being overweight are less likely to be dealbreakers despite women being more accepting when it comes to male partners. But yeah desu I think most women who shit talk their bfs are just not in a long term compatible relationship. I am super happy with my boyfriend and he responds well to constructive criticism in all areas of his life and is supportive to me as well. It's less about male/female overall and just finding people who meet your specific needs.

8 gauge steel wire is what I use to structure wings or tails when needed on costumes. It's shapeable, sturdy enough to hold up foam and bounces as you walk for a nice floating aesthetic. If your prop is made out of foam it will be more than strong enough to hold it up.

sewing and crafting threads are kill, came here to ask about this. ive got a chink repro of a singer pixie plus to work with, and i am trying to see if my machine is good enough to take cotton twill pants in and out at the waist. over thinner bits i can stitch in the ditch just fine, but this is what happens if i go over where the fabric is folded back in on itself at the thicker parts. is this a thread tension issue, or am i pushing the limits of a cheap machine?

General stupid question. Does anybody know of a site to get a decent quality victorian-style maid outfit? I wanna do one for a maid cafe (maybe) and I figured Taobao might have one, but the stores in the taobao don't quite have what I'm looking for. Think the first or fifth one here.

so i just received a print with a single layer of foam board as backing...and it was perfect. do you guys ship with double board (if shipping flat?)
i ship with double board because i get anxious about protection (and will probably continue to do so) but wondering what the mishap rate is for prints that are sent with just one backing board...(i use cardboard instead of foam)
>>
>>10608963
I ship paper goods in double chipboard because doubling up makes it slightly harder to bend the envelope. If I’m shipping something more valuable like a lolita print or a kpop photocard, I also put it in a plastic sleeve that’s hard to bend before putting it between chipboard.
