Is there picture of early ( as in late 90's early 2000 ) handmade or upcycled lolita ? I was wondering if it's wrote on street snaps listing.
besides the red dress, all the dresses/costumes are from bodyline
Sorry for the delay in replying. That wasn’t the band but thanks for sharing I love the song.
With help of a friend I finally found it. It was Love Message by The Possible.

Though I can’t find the full mv of the song other than the dance video. There is a mix of different brands being worn and a mini crown hat which I love.
Is this the full MV, anon?
So I looked up the ISBN for the first book, which was written incorrectly. It leads to a book named 『日本タレント名鑑2002』published by VIPタイムズ社. It is a directory for talents in Japan, illustrated and sorted by year.

I dug a bit deeper and stumbled on this page in Japanese (seems like a blog site), which mentions the Omiya incident but cites that their whereabouts are unknown.

Wild trip this one. I'm inclined to believe this is an elaborate fake though.

We have one for cosplay, so let's have one for lolita

i'm so fucking sick of my current GO. important notices in the groupchat that the organizer has treated like a diary since day 1. then they post passive aggressive shit in the chat about people who didn't get the memo, when they never sent a formal email? it's all buried under randoms complaining about their home life. the unprofessionalism is incredible. my charms have been state side for weeks and organizer is too busy but can post random pictures in the chat. what was the point of a group chat for this if you make the important info impossible to find? fucking never again.
Are you referring to the honey group?
No lol but if you’re having the same problems I’m sorry.

Right, my bad. Rosetic is also a chinese brand I think. But they are sold on every western goth site and seem to have a better fit and quality to gothic lolita than some western plastic lace brands.
Ozz On is my guilty pleasure. I just wish they used better quality trim most of the time.
Where would be a good place to scout for gothic earrings and piercings?
I recommend Blood Milk Jewels and Martha Rotten!
i second Martha Rotten

I want to start an idol itabag, any advice on building one when merch is both awkward to buy in bulk and is expensive (badges are only sold at Asian concerts, in a blind bag, with the purchase limit of 1-3)? The price of the average badge is ¥2,000-3,000 each, so I can't really do my initial idea of having the whole thing being repeating badges. I'm thinking of bulking out the spaces with photocards, as they're easy to buy and I already have many.
I could just use unofficial merch/handmade merch, but I feel like that's cheating
I too use a board. I even have boards for my odds and ends keychains. It’s a bit messy but it will do for now
I’m guilty of that! The show I like has little western fandom but thankfully it’s popular in Japan. I can usually never find anything at local events but Japanese collectors sell their collections often in lots so I just buy those. Thankfully since not many people are into the show I usually always end up winning auctions.

Idk what happened to previous thread, so here we go.
Can someone recall the retail price for Carnival second edition?
5 replies and 2 images omitted. Click here to view.
From what I know the only difference is the tag. I've asked so because I expected the latter release to affect the price of both so it's somewhere near re-release retail price.
I try again... gloria with matching headdress?
just wondering
last dress sold for 180 but i guess with cape I'd probably say 300+ because I doubt anyone would sell the cape by itself
Besides the difference in tags, I noticed the re-releases in pink and pink x red being a darker shade of pink than the originals? I haven't been able to tell the difference between the black releases, though.

It's been almost three years since my last stocking haul, so any idea which shops "one size only" stocking can fit tall lolitas (175 cm / 5'8")? I have no idea which shops I bought from three years ago, so how's the current fit of Yidhra or Trany? Any shops I should be looking at? The plus size shops in the sheet sell ugly stuff. I just want flowers and gold prints.

>Don't let your nipples get too hard my fellow gal
Since this thread is gone and sex stories are vaguely on topic: I once dated a guy who thought nipples got hard when women were sexually aroused like they were tiny penises. I was flabbergasted
mine do, it's titillating
Ten points for you

Unironically saved and made it my desktop. Yeah yeah, I get it, nobody likes being on the receiving end of completely braindead trolling and having it work, and you all just want to post cute shit all day. Snore.


Dude, lesbian gals are the hot ones. Especially the super prideful kind that neg their heterosexual friends. Ever see Ikki Tousen? Ryofu Housen was best girl.


Just for you, I will come back... soon. Don't want to say exactly when, it would ruin the surprise!

i started sorting my accessories all together by color rather than type after seeing several lolitas do it, and it was life changing. it makes it really quick to put a coord together. so rather than
>KC basket
>pin basket
>hat basket
do this instead
>pastel pink accessory basket
>sax blue accessory basket
>black accessory basket
i still keep vintage jewelry in it's own box and all my necklaces hung up on an organizer rack, tights folded into their own drawer, and other particularly delicate or oversized things stored on their own, but storing my most worn accessories grouped by color made making daily coords so much easier.
do we take requests in this thread? Ive been searching for a thin summer quilt or thin blanket. Vintage looking, my room colors are yellow and light blue, either floral, or big bunny or deer print on it.
Wow someone's salty as fuck. Who hurt you?
I love this. I wanted to incorporate somme weeb shit to my decor but because I'm into goth things and not pastels I haven't found much inspiration. But this is great.

I’m so jealous of this girl in a non-mean way. Imagine being 14 and your parents buy you tons of lolita. I’m way older now but I never got more than a new pair of jeans from them a couple times a year. Must be nice. By the time I could afford my dream wardrobe I’m old and I’m starting to age
that disclaimer is for when you can't tell whether a pink is more peach or coral, not for when your beige blouse doesn't match your white socks. stay posted.
I know she and her mom wear lolita together, but is she really 14? She looks way older, but it could just be that French angularity.
She's from an old, rich family line.
I mean, she's wearing a lolita brand dress, but this isn't lolita.

For the metal coloring
Anyone have any good armor patterns? I've been wanting to make some stuff but don't have any good ideas at the moment.
Kamui Cosplay sells pattern sets that you can mix and match
Thank you for the link, but I'm not sure that'd work very well on this coat, would it?
I can't see why it wouldn't. However, it's not faux fur but sherpa/wool. Fur is hair-like / single-strands sticking straight up whereas sherpa/wool is piles of woven strands.You'll really need to saturate the fibers with alcohol and/or water to really get the color in there. Do a patch test on an interior part of the wool/sherpa that won't be seen to test its efficacy.

What's your the most surprising discovery about lolita fashion or community overall?
212 replies and 11 images omitted. Click here to view.
I too am concerned but maybe it’s just a REALLY bad translation...
Sure, I was wrong assuming you enjoyed wearing the clothes without showing them to people.

>So now it sounds like you can't handle washing your dresses frequently.
Ironic that you also proceed to make incorrect assumptions. What I said was based off of the idea of wearing the clothes around the house as daily wear without taking photos. If I'm taking and posting photos, then I'm fine with it.

>I like to have brunch with friends too but I don't treat it like it's some special occasion that needs to go in my diary.
Well clearly multiple other people like myself and >>10402688 consider outings like that to be minor special occasions. There are plenty of historical diaries where people write about them. No need to get pissy over semantics.

>You can wear them whenever. You just choose not to.
What are you even talking about here? I've specifically said I wear them with friends and out and about regularly. You yourself don't even consider that a special occasion so by your definition I'm wearing them regularly. Are you having a stroke or are you just getting angry over some strawman in your head?
fuck you are retarded. this is like a marathoner getting pissed off at hobby-jogging moms for "not liking running enough". people enjoy hobbies to different degrees and in different ways. not everyone engages with their hobbies on a daily basis. why does it make you so seething mad?

Why does it matter especially with a new thread? If something gets deleted just look in the archive. There’s been nothing decent posted ITT so who gives a shit if it gets nuked and a new one replaces it? You have some severe autism if you genuinely care that much
True, may this thread get nuked then
Hot take, but maybe she used to trace before and now that she's making money off of her art she needs to be able to demonstrate that she can draw from scratch on livestream for patrons and such. Thus deleting all of the old work so there aren't any expectations of that ability.
Is it true if you have a 'creator' account ig will randomly cockblock a post to tank your engagement to get you to do something (pay them?) Or did I just bad a bad post time/tags. Tbh I want to go back to a personal profile bc looking at the statistics is kind of stressful but I love the primary/general messaging function.
I’ve never heard of that but IGs boosting algorithm is a mystery all in its own. I have a creator account as well and enjoy analyzing my stats but I get what you mean about it being stressful. There are days where my posts are shit and to watch my stats go down is a real kick in shins for no reason other than “MUH NUMBAS”

What's my best bet for lining a HEAVY leather coat for wear in the summer? (It's for a cosplay and the way the world is right now I doubt I'll get to debut it before summer 2021)
It's going to be real leather and quite long, about knee length, so I expect it to weigh at least 8lbs when finished. The lining will be in direct contact with my skin so I wanted to avoid polyester. I do have the money to line it in silk however most silk is too lustrous for the sort of character I'm doing and I'm worried about the fragility of most silk weaves.
Silk is the least breathable natural fiber and won’t wick sweat well, some weave of cotton is probably your best bet.
Shit, put in bin
Rayon bemberg is what you want.
