Liar, everything here is clearly from Taobao, anyone who knows anything about making cosplay can see that. Maybe you made the Nezuko horn (which looks terrible btw), but if you mean like, Makima because you bought some existing clothes? Ya, that’s not making it. You probably can’t thread a needle.
I probably sound like a bitch but that’s because people like you come along and throw your money at Taobao for cheap garbage that you then throw away, creating tons of waste, and making people think those who actually make their costumes are lazy since they don’t post content constantly. It would be one thing if any of this required any effort but putting in a credit card number doesn’t count. At least pay an actual costume maker in the US to support the art, but god forbid you spend more for something that is high quality and lasts since you all wear it once to take pics for tik tok and Instagram because you have nothing else in your life

it's chinese slang from a video game. it basically means super unlucky, where as european emperor means super lucky. it has to do with whaling in gacha. "african chiefs" spend too much and don't get good pulls and the term is used to describe how a players face will get "dark with anger" when they get bad gacha rolls. not to be a sjw but it's honestly extremely racist.
>>
>>10828880
>>10828900

Pretty good explanation here as well: https://www.zhihu.com/question/453624704

Poor gacha luck = your face darkens upon seeing your shit pull = like a African chief
Good gacha luck = your face brightens upon the pull = like a European pope

Not sure why a store would offer lucky bags that openly says one option is shit luck and the other is nice, unless there's a huge price different.

Why is it that con panels today are either
>video essays that can be/are on youtube
>returning panels from last year, because it was so popular they hardly changed anything
>some guy just talking about his shit opinion and may let the audiance chime in on theirs, all equally uninteresting
>celeb guest q&a circlejerks (ironically the best quality of panel so far)
>some amateurish game show that is fun until one of the panel hosts do something incompetent or get pissed for various reasons, ruin the game, and your win didn't count
Did social media and the advancement of the internet kill the con panel? Meeting stars and creators is just about the only thing you can't do anywhere else. Sneak peaks are all leaked or broadcasted online, special event merch and giveaways are shitty, and you almost pray for some retard to think eating a cake baked by a congoer who gave it to you is a good idea and throw up on stage just to make things unique.
I still love cons but every year I find myself more and more selective about panels because I keep finding so many stinkers. Idk if they're getting worse or the rose tinted glasses are just off.

I think Covid also was a huge factor for this.

>>

>>10830775
>"i don't have to please you!111!!!"
This girl really doesn't get that it's not about one person's disapproval. It's the entire community. Anyone who can't take a $20 loss and correct their mistakes is a lost cause. Those dresses should indeed rot in her closet. They honestly behave like a child and I'm scared to know how old this person is.
>>
>>10830921
She bragged about getting 5 dresses for $200 on Amazon but somehow "can't" spend $200 on one dress. She wouldn't even listen to anyone saying not all dresses are that expensive. I also want to know how old she is. She acts like a spoiled child but complains about bills.

I've been struggling to find someone that is willing to sell a very damage piece to me so i can use the fabric as patches or to fix my own dresses.
Right now i'm looking for a damaged or replica of favourite ribbon by BTSSB just to adjust the waist size (got pregs and still want to wear this dress when i get baby belly) but no luck.

Anyone has had this issue/problem finding damaged pieces to buy?

>>10829435
This is stupid, why would you alter a dress for pregnancy or postpartum? Buy a couple dresses with shirring and it will fit most people even pregnant, unless you're already obese
>>
I can understand of trying to wear Lolita as long as possible but isn't nine months are relatively short time ? Considering the efforts you have to go through buying a damaged piece and altering your dress.
I wish you good luck, bit I don't think it's a good Idea.
Maybe you can find some cute maternity gowns
>>
why not just wear empire waist dresses with full back shirring? Trying to alter your clothes for this temporary situation in your life seems silly. You'll have other issues to think about post partum, like practical clothing that make it easier to breast feed and how to keep baby vomit off your clothes.
>>
>>10829673
it's even less than that, it takes a few months for the belly to grow
>>
>>10829673
>>10829748
Yeah it's much less. Basically first 3 months you are one size, then you start growing exponentially so you're going to grow by 2-4 sizes over 6 months and nothing is going fit well for more than a month.
and this isn't considering all the physical discomforts of pregnancy. Why dress in lolita if you're spending most of your free time resting from morning sickness or swelling?

I mean, true, but they’re not going to tell people to spend their money elsewhere. With the exchange rate you’ll save money even with fees. But obviously AP USA isn’t going to tell people that because then they lose out on the order.
I can understand it costing a little more due to customs but when they are using the 100yen/$1 trick when it’s like 130yen/$1 it ends up being so much more that it’s kind of shady. I see a lot of shopping services that give prices in dollars pricing like that and it pisses me off… you know they would make sure to use the correct exchange rate if it was less than 100yen/$1.

>>10829815
>>10829816
Never thought I'd see this in 2023. What a beautiful sight.

What are the chances Milky Chan the Fawn is next? I feel like it's the most logical print if AP is trying to knock out people selling for really high secondhand.

>polyester tent Honey Cake sizing
Why the fuck would anyone want to repeat that disaster? Even plus-sized lolitas were selling it afterwards because it looked so awful. Anyone who wishes for that again needs to step away from the fashion permanently.
>>
>>10829818
Nta, but if you misunderstood, this Instagram story is from a random lolita, not the AP USA page or a member of staff

I don't know if she just doesn't pay attention to the exchange rate, or just said that because her page attracts more non-lolitas/normies and didn't want to take the extra time to explain all of that.

Is it safe to take a child to a convention? I have never seen anyone take their children to a con or a costume festival, however I've heard that many parents do. Isn't that really unsafe?

I went to a Christmas comic con & there were a few kids I was dressed as a screen accurate kylo ren & one kid had a rubies kylo ren costume I took a moment to kneel down and look him in the eyes & he tried using the force on me lots of onlookers laughed & took pictures it’s my favorite moment cosplaying ever & I wish I got a picture that being said kids absolutely do not belong at anime conventions
>>
>>10823509
I say no because then parents use their kids as ammo to attempt to remove anything salacious from con to fully accomodate them. If you look at cons in japan a large portion of it is coomer aligned. You ever seen doujin or cosplay shoots they have over there? Camera angles are frequently from the ground for a reason lol.
It's like a 30 year old trying to get into a retirement community: It's not for you, fuck off. You can visit every once in a while but everyone knows something's wrong if you're there all the time.
>>
>>10823509
It depends on the child and if the family gives a fuck. I've seen plenty of babies and toddlers at cons and I have to imagine that the events must be overwhelming sensory-wise unless the child is somehow used to it and the parents don't care. I'd say only take your kid there when they voluntarily ask to go AND can handle themselves in large crowds, or just stick to tiny, local events for now.
