uh, anon, pointelle is slightly different than what OP posted. the holes in pointelle are much much smaller (like your picture)
I asked the question originally and still found that helpful for other reasons, thanks
good for you? it's still important to be aware of.
that one in your picture is just a gathered rectangle that's tapered at the ends into a semi circle type cut
You can make full aprons like that by measuring your waist, times that measurement by 1.5, or 2 if you want a fuller apron and then cut it out into a shape you like.
The ruffles are done the same way but measure the hem of the apron, and times it by 2-3.
Make your waistband from a rectangle long enough to tie around your waist, plus more for a decorative tied bow, then you just add on patch pockets and embellish as you like
I think with the current trends it's harder to handmake unless you're doing, say, resin jewellery or miniatures to supplement your OTT sweet collection. It was easier with classic shit in 2013-15 that incorporated more normie things like those spray painted skewer madonna crowns and fucking flower crowns. Basically if you can hot glue it, then people do it.

What would be the male equivalent of Gothic Lolita? Nothing gay, a masculine counterpart.

I'd guess it would probably look something like David Tennant's doctor who or some kind of mad hatter.

Sorry man, didn't get a good impression at all, at all at all from what I saw on searching those terms. I'm sure someone can pull it off, I got an open mind, but it wasn't a good first impression.

Alternative jfash shop staff often post the coords they wear to work, and what customers wear while shopping, to social media. Sometimes it feels like with Harajuku gentrifying, and iconic magazines going under, some shop staff are working extra hard as brand ambassadors and social media managers in their own right. They consistently share creative, fun content as well as the usual sales and marketing messages.

Let's share and discuss some of their social media work.

What's the best way to store wigs?

Should I be keeping them in tight-sealed bags or hanging them?
depends on the wig, but folding them back into the hair net and into plastic bags are usually good enough
if it's a long straight wig, then do a loose braid to save you some trouble later
using a wad of tissue paper to pad the head part would also help
sign up on tenso then have prisila ship to that address - google translate should get you most of the way but if not, post screens

whoa what the fuck
you're telling me kin shit survived and is now on tik tok? fucking hell

Kinnies are basically weebs who claim or believe that their soul is a reincarnation or parallel incarnation of a fictional character (especially, from anime, manga, or video games). That's the definition anyway. I'm pretty sure this split off from some native American shit back when tumblr was active, which you'd think these kids would be against.
Oh shit I got a final fantasy house flashback
Fucking hell no

Can't they and their clown makeup go back to their shitty aliexpress EnStars cosplays
The photographer/cosplayer should've just cropped out the AC vents above the door. They look so out of place with the rest of the photo.

I assume it's the 1.4 update? Sort of excited to see Hutao released at last if she's in this one.

Thank you! Yeah, after the 5th page of going through the Boz site and seeing maybe 1 size/color of several items I clicked on in stock still, I was getting that impression.

Funny enough I almost purchased the winter special set back during the holidays but spent too long deliberating, and I'm really kicking myself over it now. Do they do those sets often, or is it more irregular?
I believe they do those around the same time of year other brands do their lucky packs/special packs, so you’ll have another chance for sure
Get some BPN/Peace Now blouses and jackets to bulk your wardrobe out - they're great and sell for SO cheap second hand.
There are plenty of nun style taobao but they're all tacky and OTT as fuck, not minimalist at all like Nameless, it sucks.

If I want the most ultra realistic robot mask, where do I go to?

I'm considering making it myself but it's probably too much for me.
I'd even like it to have programmable LED displays for eyes and mouth so I can change my expression on the go.

>spoonfeed me, i want to engineer this complicated thing but i don’t want to do any of the engineering work or google basic info on daft punk helmets
Why reinvent the wheel, wasted time.

You are going to have to 3D print the mask and look up Arduino on youtube for starters.
you're wasting time trying to get spoonfed here. Looks like you don't even know what questions to ask to get started. Go look up tutorials for stuff you're interested in. They'll actually go over stuff you need to know in order and with parts lists.
Few options:
- 3D print it
- Foam + hot glue
- Papercraft + covering (like fibreglass)
- Insulating foam and cleaver then mold it

Huh. The girlfriend and I have been watching a shit ton of Stargate and she wants to dress as a serpent or horus guard. Doubtful that ever happens cause I dunno how the fuck you'd make the head piece. But I wouldn't have a problem dressing as Daniel Jackson

Pretty cool. And yet she’ll still have to fight off unwanted hugs with a stick.

Is old school still popular? I have this old corduroy ap skirt I think I might want to let go of, plus some other old (but not very fancy or popular) ap from around 2004-2007. I know 2010-era ap is very big right now but idk about the older, less known pieces.
that skirt would be popular, auction it starting at $100 minimum.

Royaner offers some more reasonably sized breasts on some of their breastplates. Eyung and Ivita only offer larger breasts.
Invita has pretty much all sizes
he's not big enough for that.
Something to add about padding, unless you're wearing something that hides that area of the body (really poofy dress around the waist that hides the hips for example), don't only either wear shapewear around the waist or pad out the hips, you have to do both. Waist size and hip size are a matter of the ratio between the two, having both makes the feminine hips seem larger / feminine waist smaller. Only padding/wearing shapewear on one or the other won't do it enough to get a decent silhouette, unless you just have really wide hips and/or tiny rib cage for a guy to start with.
There's a large amount of "Big boobs = better" going on with availability in the market, but there's also something to be said about the fact that men on average have larger rib cages then women do. Meaning that small boobs on large chest looks disproportionate and awkward when you're already fighting against the masculine form to crossplay. It's easier to make larger boobs seem proportional on a larger ribcage, and conversely large boobs on an absolutely tiny ribcage can look equally as absurd as the inverse. Gotta work with what you have unfortunately, and unless you just have a tiny ribcage and torso generally, small boobs aren't going to look great.
Otherwise, what >>10558637 said.
