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.

Let's discuss

Help me put together the perfect outfit (especially shoes, I don't even know where to start with shoes)

the fact you're so subject to impossible beauty standards doesn't make you look as quirky/smart as you think. People looked raw back then, not ugly. You're addicted to plastic
no, i just like gaunt, hungry skeletons. these men are gross to me.

Bodyline dropped this cute roomwear looking piece but the price is ridic for them

that lace seems a bit worrying, knowing them.
I'm so sad I didn't buy the BTSSB usakumya PJs. Did they ever pop up on the SF site? Ordering from the jp site during covid just seemed like such a bullshit hassle. I didn't want to wait months for it to get here. But now I'm pissed at myself.
i'd sell you mine but i'm too busy wearing them and feeling oh so cozy scrolling the pj thread on cgl

Please for the love of all things holy and good, leave this place now and never look back. It's not too late.
Just admit that you misunderstood the question and get over it.
Are you a scrote? There are plenty of women here who have kids. Contrary to incel logic women don’t magically become pure and matronly goddesses of the hearth as soon as they pop out offspring.
I've been here for over 10yrs, way too late for me, thanks for the concern though.

Too fat and square. Though the character seems pretty easy to cosplay if one is not too square - with long sleeves
You could pull off Part 1 Dio, but DIO is beyond any human.

There's part 7 Dio that's achievable but you still need muscles.
I'm surprised no one has gotten it right yet. The trick is the bird-legs he has under it all. Though you can get stilts that work like that and disguise them to look like bones.

The fact that the diamonds don't line up between the colour change is making me twitch.
What’s wrong with these? They’re different from what each brand usually puts out but they seem fine to me.

I'd accept the tail >>10562810 imo, it may actually look halfway decent in whatever coord it was released in, especially since it's aatp and it'll be part of a much more elaborate outfit.

There's no saving the Mary Magdalene dress >>10562643. That's the kind of dumbass pattern placement I'd expect from a newbie with not enough money to get more fabric. Not a brand known for making elegant classic lolita. No. Just, no.
Sorry you're a newfag with no taste.

Do you guys ever LARP as uwu aristocrats or princesses at tea parties? I almost like the idea of setting up a kawaii victorian style tea party more than I like wearing lolita. What kind of reactions do other girls give you when you start LARPing? I get the feeling most of them are anime and video game nerds, so they've seen their fair share of autism. Post tea party ideas and recipes ITT I guess.

this. I'd love a planned princess larp teaparty but a random just doing it at a tea party is crazy as fuck
Since you are likely some smelly idiot dude asking this I’m not going to give any advice beyond ‘get out of here and get a life’, this is creepy.
If you are female, just stop it and either wear the fashion and come SEE what teas and meets are like or also gtfo.
Lolita is first, about the fashion and why we wear it, then about what we do while wearing it, not some devolved online wank fantasy about royalty. Few good lolitas are ‘anime and video game nerds’ so nope on that too.
This whole topic is totally off in the weeds and needs to die.

I’ll end with an old quote:
“Gothic and Lolita clothes are a maiden’s armor, which even a knight’s armor cannot compare to. A maiden’s lace is her steel. Her ribbons are chains. Her dress hat is her helmet, and her surreptitiously changes the blood that flows from her wounds into true red rose petals. Thus, the maiden fights. After all, to live is to fight, and to become beautiful is to become stronger.”

Yes, all the time silly. It goes like this:

>someone in some corner whispers to another: hey fellow aristocrat, wanna fuck hong kong over with opium?

How can I dress in a layered mori style without looking like a blob? I have an hourglass shape, and I just wanna be comfy and feel cute ;_;
waist belts

thrifting and vintage. Search 1970s on etsy/ebay and you'll get a lot of flowy long dresses and tiered skirts perfect for mori.

/fa/gs aside, I always assumed folks who trolled these threads and weren't anglo did already have a local folk costume interest. I know I've certainly come onto kimono from my preexisting folklore nerdery...
Unless something has religious symbolism why should anyone care that someone's wearing clothes from another culture? Especially when kimono makers want more people to appreciate and wear kimono.
Mah boy, no one cares. I don't care if someone starts to wear a Mariachi outfit, and most people with half a brain actually get happy when you show interest in their culture.

It's nice to see people wearing your ethnic clothes outside your country. It shows that they care and would like to know more about your culture, which is nice the last time I checked.

People who say otherwise are rich white girls form California.

No, it's just white girls with nothing better to do trying to police what others are interested in.

When did we last have a nanchette thread?

The good thing about this style is that it involves things pretty much everyone has in their closet and that it covers wide levels of taste and aesthetics. Even finding more unique items like neckwear or loafers doesn't take too much effort or money.

If you already have button-ups, blazers, and pleated skirts then you're pretty much there. Just don't add too much plaid if you're really don't wan't questions.
You may have to wear longer skirts (like knee-length) and tights to make it more work-appropriate, but other than that it's very feasible since it's an academic style.
we really need a resource document for stores because people asking over and over again is tiring. didn't we have a list at some point?
There's this https://pastebin.com/x80V1hTK
but it's quite outdated. I think it's mostly focused on Japanese shops too.
Focusing on the few well known Japanese shops is probably the way to go. There's so many stores on taobao now and so many that are replica/low-quality it's going to take significant effort to make a good list ugh

For me, it's the Me!Me!Me! cosplay/dance, you still occasionally see it pop up on Tik Tok.

I hate how trashy, slutty and just plain gross it is. It's stuff like this that turned cosplay into glorified pornography.

Literally read Elliot Rodger’s manifesto. Mommy issues literally gets people killed lmao
yes? did you? oh, sorry, are you referring to when they are shooting at the MC with their tits or? they have no characterization, anon.
I'm not a fan of ''armored versions" of characters. It just looks like the same repurposed armor over and over with different paint jobs for different characters.
Okay so I wasn't alone in going "but isn't the point about MeMeMe something something about porn addiction and how slutty anime character designs are toxic and people let that shit take over their lives, etc etc?" Like obviously the tiktokers don't get that but neither does half this thread lel
Usually it ends up being an excuse to wear bikini armor for attention

I'd have to lose 20 cm on the waist alone, desu I'd rather spend 2k
jelly of your friends desu, if you've got 20cm of wait you could lose i want to shoot all my pics next to you, and with that attitude you'll only get bigger
Are you ok anon? I read this three times and I still don't understand it
They want to take pictures next to the fatty to look more kawaii skinny uwu
If you have 20cm to lose you aren't going to look good in anything, altered or not.
