It seems that the "Don't cry Baby~ Larme-kei worldwide" FB is dead. I don't see Larme pop up on here anymore. What does everyone think?

Before it's mentioned, I understand Larme is a magazine and not a sub group. The general term is probably "sweet girly style" from the annoying NHK video.

I would love to see a comeback. Feel free to post inspo.

You’d think but it’s not. For the bunny look you put the red line where the namidabukuro would go in the earlier styles. Rather than looking flushed, you want to look like you’ve been crying over your dead fashion.
>>10272436
This. J-fashion is still very much alive, it’s just not as OTT as it used to be which makes people think alt looks are dead. Just follow some streep snap pages on Insta and you’ll get some updated stuff. There will always be teenagers who want to dress up.

>streep snap pages on Insta

Requesting this, any particularly good pages you follow? (It doesn't have to be in English, google translate exists).

I follow some of the brand tags on insta, but everything skew very "kera-kei" and I'm interested to see what other people are wearing as street fashion.
>>
>>10258603
This is correct. Though I do still spot quite a few girls dressing up all frilly and they still fit the larme image a bit.

I mean, even if she looks 30, 30 isn't even that old to begin with. She looks fine, and frankly, she can wear what she wants.

>we aren't babies playing dressup or ddlg weirdos"

that's funny, because these all read "ddlg" much more than lolita to me (I think it's the shorter skirts?):

It's nice to see your improvement anon! I'm glad my advice helped. I think your pattern could still use more refinement and your next step should be to find a way to add some curve to the ear so it's not flat. The trimming is definitely a lot cleaner than before, so good job on that!
And I don't think it's crazy to stare at other people's ears for inspo and guidance. You gotta start somewhere, even if it's observing other people's ears.
>>
>>10270709
I will probably wrap the wire then cut the extra so the ends are on top to prevent them from ending up on the bottom of the headband. Would it be stupid to put a little bit of hot glue or something soft on the end of the wire so it's less likely to catch? On one hand I feel like it is a good idea, on the other hand I feel it might look sloppy.

I really like the e6000 actually. It dries a lot slower so I don't feel rushed when lining the pieces up, and it is more flexible than hot glue once it dries. I had the same problem as you, which is why I decided to switch and see what happens. I don't see any melted fur.

I want to get pet trimmers and try to do the grading/taper/whatever on the backs and even sides a little bit. My borrowed trimmers are struggling to do anything fancy like that because they're old and dull.

I started looking at Etsy listings and honestly they're way better references than instagram. It feels harder to sort through the crap but in the junk there are some gems that really paint a picture of how these ears are constructed. I started posting my progress pictures and the things I learned on my ko-fi because I also think it's ridiculous how all these artists are like "I can't give away 'muh secret techniques' because it took years for me to figure it out!" Yeah, it took years maybe because no one is willing to help other people or just like to act like this is some secret art that only certain people can create. I'm literally learning this from asking for advice from y'all and staring at pictures. Being a cosplayer helps since I have an eye for how things are made, but it really isn't too hard. I feel like if people outside my friend group find my ko-fi, I might piss off some ear makers, but it feels nice to publish everything I'm learning so other people don't have to struggle through learning the construction of these ears.


I want to see a pair of these ears in person but all of my friends are too broke (me too tho).

The ears do have a wire mesh base, so adding curve so they're less flat looking might be helped a little bit if I figure out how to bend them in a way that doesn't look awkward.

Sorry for these walls of text. As an apology and a thank you, here is a pic of those ears on a wig head
>>
>>10264341
Apparently people got their ears already
>>
>>10271033
I recently got my first pair of ears from another seller (in last thread's 'okay' tier) and they are miles ahead of mine in quality. Like I thought mine were pretty ok, but they're not even close to these. (Sorry for vague detail, I don't want to post any identifying info.) They're much daintier, but also quite a bit stiffer than mine. The airbrushing has made them a little.. not quite crusty but not as soft as unpainted fur? But even with kind of crusty airbrushing, it's very precise and the craftsmanship themselves is very clean.

I've also realized ears look a lot bigger on screen than they are in real life, I've been making mine 3-5" tall to match what I've been seeing online, but in reality it looks like the range is more like 1.5-4". The edges are also finished pretty nicely and even looking at it in person I can't figure out how they've done it unfortunately.

TLDR, I really suggest getting your hands on a pair in person if you're serious about improving your craft! And if anyone knows how to make the glued edges clean or what glue is commonly used help a gull out

Could anyone point me in the direction of any references for starting out make-up?
>>
>>10269073
I would recommend doing the following things:
>Figure out your skin type and undertones.
>Find a foundation and concealer that you like that suit you based on skin type and undertones.
>Figure out how you want to set your makeup. (finishing powder, setting spray, etc.) This prevents your makeup from coming off throughout the day.
>Pick out a makeup remover. This could be wipes, oil cleansers, etc.
>Pick up basic makeup application tools like a good set of brushes and a Beauty Blender.
>Start simple and work your way into more makeup products and more complicated looks. Start just with the very basics (foundation, concealer, brows, lips). You won't be able to do beauty Youtuber level makeup looks right off the bat.
>Once you work your way through the basics, then start trying different things out.

Tbh makeup is a LOT of trial and error. It takes time to figure out how to achieve the makeup look you want, what products work for you, etc. Tutorials can help, but you can't rely on them for everything.
>>
>>10267275
I tried some on my skin while I was in Japan, honestly it's nothing too special, I would go for a better known foundation myself, which is why I went for shu uemura since they have more yellowy undertones.

I use to go to cons to mainly to get drunk and got the occasional hookup. The better times have been the women which I get their info, woo them, then slay it regularly when we're regularly banging.

So far gotten I've had 2 FWBs and 2 multi-year relationships thanks to cons. Consistent pussy is substantially better than having to play mind games to get them in bed at cons. It's even better when we go to cons together and bang there.
