There was a time when brolitas were accepted in the communities as long as they actually participated in the fashion properly. I'd like to start a thread that takes us back to the time before. It was a short time but it was okay for boys to wear dresses just because they wanted to be pretty and not have some agenda behind it. I only have this one guy as an example but if there are others post them as well.

Yeeeaa it comes from a history of black people being taken advantage of, especially black women, so we've been brought up to be able to fight and defend ourselves. Not only that, but since in the past black women were also expected to do physical labor as well almost as much as the men were so you had to be tough. So nowadays a black woman not presenting herself as a "bad bitch" is looked down on by the black community but the opposite is looked down on by other communities. Thankfully this was slowly changing, but thanks to recent events I feel it may come up again.

Doesn't make it right that she was a bitch though. Hard-headed attitudes isn't good on anyone.
It's my dad, y'know?
The 65 year old guy who just wants to play with his grandkids.
I haven't been so mad at anyone in... well, it's been a while. I called her out, then she got in my face. I nearly punched her, and I'm not proud to admit it.
Shit, now I'm down thinking of it all.
idk, most of the black women i see are a little abrasive, but nothing so drastic as all that. Maybe it's because i'm also a black girl, so no one's putting up a front for me?

Sometimes you wanna look good in a dress, sometimes you wanna look good in pants. But people just have to be shitty when you switch it up.
> I better see some ribbons and ringlets.
God, I want to see that, if only for the novelty of it. There woiuld be so many people shitting on them for it though, I understand why no one's done it yet.
you also seem like you were being confrontational.

It's more about the history behind it and the overall. There's this sense of needing to be strong and powerful which is something that's not seen as much in other women of different races. It was calming down too, being a bit more normalized for black women not needing to be as agressive as before, but with recent happenings, this may change.

There's something there, I know it.

Snirf, snort... cough wheeze
Hey lets check your temperature with this IR-thermometer...
Maybe someone can help me out? I never used to be a big figure collector but I just got into it a bit more. Now I accidentally bought a bootleg figure. I was way too excited so I didn't check it on flaws.

Does anyone have experience with this and knows if I can return it to the store and ask for my money back?
That really depends on when, where and how you bought the figure anon.

Online purchases from Dutch stores you can return for up to 2 weeks after delivery. There's no reason necessary and a full refund will be given as they are required to do so by law. With international orders it all depends on the seller.

Returning in-store purchases depends on the store in question. They aren't required to allow returns nor are they required to give cash when taking returns. Most stores will give you a week however, sometimes with store credit instead of cash. Being friendly also helps to get them to make an exception for you.

If it's a second hand purchase through Marktplaats or Facebook the seller isn't required to do anything. You could report them to Marktplaats or a group admin for selling bootlegs and that's it.

Also if you can't return the figure you could try selling it to someone who doesn't care about buying bootlegs. At least that way you can make back some of your money. If you're feeling creative you could try customizing the figure. But no matter what, don't forget to leave reviews everyone about the store selling bootlegs, especially if they tried to pass it off as an official figure.

Selling bootleg is illegal in this country, doesn't matter if you're a store owner or average joe.

If you bought bootleg at a store I would return it stating it is a bootleg and demanding your money back (since you know, selling bootleg is illegal which makes your contract of sale non existent.) If the store pretended it's a real figure your contract of sale is still void because of deception and the seller had no sincere intention to be fair. If the seller says he/she "didn't know" he/she failed their duty to investigate, and that also voids the contract of sale.

tl;dr: demand your money back, do not try to sell the bootleg!

It is. A popular artist I follow recently got banned because they post nsfw on an unlinked SIDE ACCOUNT. Ko-fi interprets any money you get from them as going toward your whole body of work, so you can't even use them if you do nsfw on the side and never even directly link it. It's fucking wild.
Wtf how did ko-fi find art on an unlinked side account? Did they monitor this artist or something?
I went back and re-read and it might have been linked actually, I apologize. It's not linked to their main twitter so I assumed they hadn't linked it there. If you're curious: https://twitter.com/robots_and_lace/status/1252802530054156289

Nice work! The wig looks great.
Looks great! Your figure fits super well too
Thanks guys! The wig I got done by a store called HeathersAlelier on Etsy and it’s really good quality. The drills are detachable and super sturdy so it’s very convenient
>The drills are detachable
That’s awesome. I love modular cosplay stuff so much
I used to be complete ass at styling wigs, it’s still probably the hardest part of cosplay for me. I just did this one following a spike tutorial, hows it look?

Anyone have worn pics for the same cut in navy? I always see the red one and wanted to see if it might be styled a little different with the navy colorway.
i only have a few but they are also quite simple
oops i think that is considered blue, not navy
but this is the one they're calling navy this time around, so it's kind of confusing

stop fucking telling people to use this shit in areas it's not supposed to be used for.
I'm not telling anyone to use it, I'm not going to their house and forcing them at gun point and forcefully applying it to them. They are grown adults, they can make their own decisions. I was sharing my own experience is all because they were asking. It works on my machine.
If it burns you, don't use it, simple as so fuck you.
What about my neck?
Man that sucks. I agree with the others but maybe it's time to talk to her about it. Let her know that you have no interest in becoming trans nor into being a sissy and you genuinely enjoy the fashion and want to have fun in it.

Just a fair warning though, lurk the ita threads and try not to end up there. Boys in lolita is cool as long as they do it right.
That's up to you.

>The Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center in National Harbor filed a layoff notice June 15 affecting its 2,077 employees as the coronavirus pandemic continues to pummel the hospitality industry.

>The Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification (WARN) filed with the Maryland Department of Labor lists an effective date of March 11. The Gaylord, Greater Washington's largest hotel at 1,996 rooms, has been closed since March 24, when the owner of all seven Gaylord resort properties across the country suspended operations.

So much for those cons coming back anytime soon.

Residence Inn is over $500 a night and Hampton Suites are sold out from Thurs to Sun. The best bet is to room at Alexandria but you will need to drive or get an uber from the hotel to the con.
Not only are the staff at the Gaylord laid off but the county the hotel is in still has a mass gathering ban in effect. Katsu brings in what? 15-20k people? The PG County executive is going to shut them right the fuck down and that's if the governor doesn't get them first.
I reserved a room just in case, but I’m 99% sure Katsu will get cancelled. The US is still seeing huge spikes in case numbers every day, with some states seeing record breaking numbers for several days in a row. There’s no way the US can get COVID under control in the next 7 months.
This is the equivalent of asking Dragon Con to leave the host hotels and move to the world congress center.

It ain't happening.
First, even though Katsucon's staff pretends otherwise, Katsucon is a cosplay con and half the attendees would stop coming if they didn't get the pretty Gaylord. Second, Otakon's con center is too big for Katsucon. It's actually too big for Otakon -- there's sizable chunks of it that AwesomeCon uses but Otakon doesn't. Third, the hotel situation for Otakon kind of sucks -- if you don't get one of the immediately adjacent hotels, it's a half-mile trek through downtown DC, which will get you a lot more weird stares than walking across National Harbor.

Same, I reserved a room but I expect the whole thing to get cancelled. DC and Maryland have kept new cases low relative to their peaks a few weeks ago, but Katsucon would be bringing in people from states with worse control.

Either Aaron Keener or a Division agent. It seems appropriate.
Damn, woodworking a prop/mask is super impressive in and of itself. It looks really cool.

It's immediately recognizable to anyone familiar with the character. Even if we feel like nitpicking, the off-center mouth and longer chin are the only things different in the pic; that doesn't seem important
