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.
>>
>>10562085
Nobody LARPs at tea parties. We're not putting on a costume to pretend to be a character. I guess we're on best behavior and using the manners we learned growing up. But any princess fantasy you have is going to be destroyed by a single glance at the itas at the far table.
>>
>>10562087
What if I curtsied and introduced myself as princess Momo? I'm not asking them to play along, I'm asking them not to kick me out.
>>
>>10562090
you'd get sent to the ita table
>>
>>10562090
You are asking them to play along that you’re princess momo and not idiot number 3
At least tell everyone its a larp party. If someone pulled that shit on me when i’m expecting a normal ass tea party, i’d tell you loudly to fuck yourself
>>
>>10562090
You will instantly be tagged as an issue and treated accordingly; either as a potential threat or someone who'll need some form of mental chaperoning.

You might be able to organize a meetup and do something like VTM or Werewolf or lolita DnD but if you just show up introducing yourself as Princess anything no one with feel safe interacting with you. Even telling them beforehand that you're going to be role-playing at their regular teaparty will get you on the freak list.
>>
>>10562090
Tbh it's a fun idea IMO, but it'd have to be planned and not just "I'm a kawaii neko princess uwu" out of the blue
>>
>>10563038
this. I'd love a planned princess larp teaparty but a random just doing it at a tea party is crazy as fuck
>>
>>10562085
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.”

Please dont use the term LARP we dont need anymore people shitting up our thread. Theres enough Americans as it is.

If you did that at my tea party, I wouldn't kick you out, but I would laugh at you.
>>
>>10562090
People are welcome to go by a nickname or different name in the community, but you're still expected to behave like a human being and be yourself. Everyone at a meet can tell when other lolitas are trying to play a character, and it's really cringy. A great way to not get invited to the next event. We're just people who happen to like wearing a certain style, not costumed characters.

If you want to do a LARP tea party, I would recommend doing it within the LARP or cosplay community where character acting is part of the culture. It actually sounds like a good time, but please get participants who are specifically signing up for that experience and don't just show up to a tea party.

Guy i have an idea
What if we built up an army of beta orbiters online, and used them to funnel our Lolita lifestyle? It was common for people to own slaves back then, so it's true to the fashion, but with a modern twist. We can exchange pictures of our slaves- I mean simps, online and trade simps with one another. Cute ones would offer a higher price, obviously, so we could trade dresses and stuff for a high quality simp.
>>
>>10569587
you mean sell live streams of EGL tea parties? Sounds awesome. Maybe you could even do a meet-and-greet with autograph session for the viewers after getting enough interest
>>
>>10569587
This sounds retarded but on a practical level the key to simps is that they:

1. Are usually obsessed with one girl at a time specifically
2. Think they have a chance with you and that parasocial interaction keeps that charade up and strings them along

Trying to trade them like cattle is just not going to work because in order to extract their money they have to think you care about them at least a little and they won't just switch loyalties to some new random lolita only because of a "trade"
>>

>>
>>10570064
doubt, momo is just a generic uwu name.
>>
>>10570042
I'm just using simp for lack of a better term, I'm talking about moids in general. And they absolutely would sign up for this shit, they pay money for it
>>
>>10569587
So what, are we going to send them nudes? Or are we all going to make out and have flirty pillow fights? No dude wants to pay to watch a bunch of uggo-to-average chicks drink tea in fluffy clothes.
>>
>>10570107
You know nothing about men then, they're basically born to be simps. "protect and provide" is their default state when they aren't the killing and raping type. It's wired into their biology, they're supposed to give women free shit and we need to start taking advantage.
>>
>>10570112
You have a severely flawed view of men. Protect and provide, sure. But not for a bunch of random ugly girls who aren't even going to send them lewds.
>>
>>10570112
while true simps who will provide in exchange for nothing do exist in this world, they are unhinged and will at the very least consider slicing you open Bianca style if you drop them.

no thanks, I'll take a healthy relationship with a sane partner who buys me brand anyway
>>
>>10570119
Again, you know nothing about mens
>>
>>10570107
Aren't there men with a fetish of just watching women eat?? I'm sure the DDLG types would also get a kick out of being able to see a bunch of women in uwu frilly dresses having tea and acting cute. I'm not sure if looks would really matter if you had decent enough make up skills, but maybe everyone could wear a mask and make it like a secretive masquerade kek. If you really wanted to suck in orbiters you'd have to make it more immersive, like live streaming the tea party and interacting with the chat.

Ideally you'd just find some paypigs or sugar daddies that'll coom at the thought of you spending all their money on burando
>>
>>10570215
The most you'll get is weeby lolitas at heart watching your stream and crying about being too poor/too fat for burando kek. But yeah totally do it so we can see all you uggs fail miserably in your endeavor and laugh at you for thinking you were interesting or attractive enough to get money for nothing.

No way. Just act like a well mannered modern adult. There's no reason to get weird about it. Even then, you have to go through the effort of picking out an era and location. Aristocrat etiquette has changed throughout history.

>>
>>10584929
I have been summoned.

>>10562085
OK, so lets discuss this.

In general, there is nothing wrong with this as long as you consider the following:

1: Is the event explicitly stated in a clear concise manner, in the very nature of the event before anyone attends, And is there an option if any for those who do not wish to participate in character?

2: Is there an agreed upon social dictim or plot?

3: Is there codified parameters for characterization, attitude, presentation, and interaction (IE, rules), and are they enforced?

4: Will all of the above interact or interfere with the general public, and those not participating?

As long as these are answered, you can have a really interesting social chamber LARP. Furthermore, having non-player participants Does not necessarily invalidate the event, as long as you have those willing to essentially act as character interpreters (For example, there are some programs at my place of work, where a tea, dance, or luncheon with guests would involve me playing the part of a local physician, or minor officer while they experience in 18th century social event.)

As long as people are willing to participate, and there are people willing to run that event, there is the potential of making an excellent day of it. It’s only as cringe as the effort made.

Have a terrible tea-time selfie at work.

Is that true that burgiricans are not aware you can use fork and a knife the same time? They supposedly eat using them separately and are surprised when see Europeans using them both the same time.
>>
>>10588452
They're aware, you just don't see it done much because it's poor etiquette. In burgerland the rules are like this

>only hold one utensil at a time, in your dominant hand, fork tines face up rather than down
>if you need to cut something, switch your fork to the non-dominant hand only to assist the knife
>only cut a few pieces of food at a time, then place the knife back down at the edge of the plate while you eat
>wielding multiple utensils makes you look like a cartoon barbarian pigman so it's avoided
>>
>>10588475
>dual wield as poor etiquette
oh gosh, burgers are such barbarians
>>
>>10588477
I didn't realize this was different in Europe. Do you always hold the fork in the non-dominate hand then?
I also did realize it was considered rude to hold your knife in your dominant hand while you took a bite in the USA.
>>
>>10562085
I went to a larp tea party once. it was masquerade themed and everyone was in either classic or aristocrat co ords. people were mingling and rp'in like they were lords and madams. we even pooled money together to hire a mariachi band to play some classical victorian era instrumentals. about a quarter into the event I heard a commotion on the other side of the venue. apparently one of the lolita in a btssb classical rose garden sax colored jsk was spiking her tea with fireball because her ex showed up to the event with a new girl. I guess she was holding in her jealousy but as time pass by she got more and more drunk until all hell broke loose and the commotion happened. she threw the tea cup she was drinking from and it smacked her ex gf right in the head. the host had a strict no headshot policy so a couple of people had to get together and carry her out of the event. last I heard she got banned from future events and kicked out of her comm.

It's not wrong to use fork in dominant hand if you are not eating stuff that requires knife usage. Although there may be regions where that differs for some products that you can theoretically portion using fork only.

Possibly Italians have their rules while eating different kinds of past like spaghetti etc.

I also have no idea if there are differences concerning more rare types of utensils like these for eating snails etc.
There are also dishes you can eat using fingers only - like chicken legs. Some regions may also have additional dishes where it's fine to use fingers only.

When you eat for example a fish or piece of meat that require cutting you hold fork in non dominant hand and then use knife in dominant hand. After you cut a piece you still hold a knife in dominant hand (typically pointing your plate) and use fork in non dominant hand to transport food portion straight to your mouth. You always hold both utensils in your hands in that variant. You can use American way too but it's generally considered to be good for kids that didn't yet learn using both knife and fork at the same time. It generally takes some time to learn it and you need to develop muscle strength and control. I still remember my initial problems.

>>10588449
Happy to oblige. Personally, I prefer Continental over British, but would avoid high French manner, due to the artificial complexity that was left over from the theatrics of Versailles.

>>10588516
I am a bunch of ferrets in a clown costume.

>>10589077
Basically, giving structure to the improvisational theater that will occur.

1) Ground rules such as automatic consideration for all participants to be considered the same social status, expectations of behavior etc.

2) A rough narrative predetermined, with low stakes, but the ability to influence interaction and intrigue. Think Jane Austen.

3) Character concepts being submitted to the hosts for review and approval before acceptance to the event. Being bear and so-and-so, or lady what’s your face is fine, but this keeps somebody from coming in declare themselves grand empress pooh-bah and throwing off the whole thing. You can also use this to accept or decline individuals based off of dresscode.

4) somebody or bodies designated as a “narrator” or essentially a game master who can act as moderation if needed would greatly benefit any potential conflict.

I don’t think there needs to be any consideration for crunch related rules such as combat, so, I honestly think that’s enough.
>>
I think it would be awkward, off-putting, and embarrassing to go to a normal tea party style meet and have one or more people there just start obviously roleplaying/trying to get people to acknowledge them, when you're just expecting to hang out.

But fuck, a scenario like >>10589145, or like a murder mystery dinner but with a historic setting/lolita dress code? I would love that. maybe i just miss being in groups but this concept fills me with longing now. I wish I wasn't a rural lonelita because I would love to set up a short meet in this style with on the grounds of a botanic garden or something, with a picnic lunch.
>>
>>10589172
If you find yourself in Va, drop a line. Some friends and I are planning a picnic/tea in late summer/early fall (covid pending) in a historic garden in yorktown.

Dress will be 1770-1810, or historic cord. We got carpets, tea services, and proper dining wear for the occasion, with food being potluck. Im planning to bring graces, bowls, and possibly badminton. My boyfriend will be bringing his period water color setup, and a friend of ours is bringing his viola. Im certain we’ll also have a game of wist or something going too.

More details as we get closer.

Tea parties are normal for countries that had better ties to the indies/china like Britain while cafe attendance more normal for countries like France with African colonies.
Political ties of your country of origin to tea or coffee abundant colonies has nothing to do with pedophilia

I'd fucking kill to attend a lolita themed murder mystery

If it was played seriously and it was a bit historical or whatever that would be cool. But I'm also imagining a murder mystery that makes references to lolita memes/sunculture, if you will, and parodies them a bit (and common mystery tropes as well) and for some reason that seems like it would be really fucking funny to experience.

yes. instead you need to adapt your entire personality around that.

the opposite of well-mannered does not imply asshole, paranoia-chan, it implies pleb stuff like saying "yea" instead of "yes", picking up food with your hands, and not minding your posture. why tf would someone post "I'm less of an asshole when I dress up"? that doesn't even make sense.

>>10597871
I have opinions on that. I believe that should be strictly social interaction and role-play, instead of using mechanical advantage through abstraction.

That’s the point of the live action portion of live action role playing. It’s like how I went to a game once where they had mechanics in place that you didn’t actually have to block with your shield, as long as you called out that you were parrying a blow... since moving a shield for real was too hard I guess?

>>
>>10597983
Well, let’s discuss this. You CAN arbitrarily declare, because as an arbitrator you can arbitrate based on guidelines:

>presentation
The attitude, manner, confidence, etc. of the individual as they make argument.

>composition
How the statement was said; the clarity and confidence of it being spoken, the use of pun, alliteration, hyperbole, wordplay etc

>Veracity
How much of the statement was factual, how were they presented the statement, and any digression or tangent

>reception
How did the addressee take it? What was their physical response? Were they taken aback? Loose composure? Pause before reply?

Don’t think like a GM in a table top game. Think like a judge at a colligate debate.
