I went out with a friend recently and he mentioned he has never been to a convention before. I usually go to conventions alone because all my weeb friends have other friends they'd rather go with, so I was really excited to hear that this friend was in a similar situation. But then, thinking about it more, I realised we'll probably never be able to go together. Even if we're allowed to have in-person conventions at the end of this year, my friend is going to the US to study in a few months. So...I guess I'll continue to go to cons alone. I hope he meets some cool people at university and he gets to go to cons in the US with them. Cons in the US seem like such big and fun events, so I hope he'll enjoy his time there.

bought a dress and the print came in more faded than expected (it was advertised as such but it's hard to tell until you have it in your hands desu)

but instead of being sad i feel... strangely relieved? like i can just roll around in it and wear it super frequently because it's already damaged and there's no going back. if it were pristine and crisp still i'd probably treat it as something special, but now it can be a "workhorse" type dress. what a weird feeling.

x2. I started going on Tinder to search but holy shit, the amount of fattychans and people that just don't take care of themselves that are in nerd circles is i n s a n e. I think 99% of people can look good with the right routine, so why doesn't anyone do so? This isn't just knocking girls, most guys I see are also in shit shape. Like, what's up with that?
>>
>>10602868
The older I get, the more I realize it only matters what an item is worth to me personally, not to anyone else. I bought a normie item that I thought was a splurge for what it is, but it's my absolute go-to. I wear it more than any other piece of clothing I own. It has earned its keep many times over. Additionally, I bought a secondhand brand dress for only $40 total, and it's my most worn lolita main piece.

>>10602870
terrible diet and life choices. Also tinder sucks, I uninstalled it and suggest you do the same.

Prior to the pandemic my partner felt apathetic towards lolita. They didn’t care for it, but understood it made me happy. I didn’t find this out until a few years in the relationship, so I decided to only dress up when I knew I could be alone (running personal errands, home alone, etc). During the pandemic they got into photography, and suddenly their feelings about lolita changed. It started with casual “this looks like a great place to shoot” while out on a walk in casual clothes. We’d take a few shots and go about our way. Now it’s “are you gonna dress up today? Wanna take a walk downtown? I saw this cool spot and thought it’d be a cool backdrop”

I’m positively thrilled, don’t get me wrong. It just feels...temporary. They go through these manic phases all the time where they’re like “THIS IS MY THING” I try my best to be supportive but... this is my forever thing. I’ve been wearing the fashion for years. I’m worried they’ll attach my thing with their thing and if they choose to move on from their thing, they’ll dislike mine even more later.

I had been missing a white offbrand blouse for months and could not find it. It was the same color as my sheets pillowcases and blanket, so that did not help.

i just found it wedged under my bed and since it has been months now it has a small sweat stain. so i am annoyed at myself. I will be much neater in how i organize my shit
>>
I need to stop spending money on Lolita when I damn well know I'm graduating soon and going to be hit with student loans.
>>
I got to coordinate a dream dress for the first time yesterday, Dolly Cat low waist in pink, and I just can't stop vibrating from excitement. It fit so perfectly and the print is so much more beautiful in person than I ever imagined!! It fits well into my wardrobe too, I have so many things that match, and god I have never felt so much elation in my life besides when I got my first brand dress. Plus I snagged a really cheap but wrecked AP dress to use as loungewear and it showed up less damaged than I thought, and and it just feels like I'm the luckiest girl in the world.

I don't talk to anyone about the pieces I'm hunting for because I'm afraid of shining a spotlight on those items and creating competition for them. I know it's insignificant, but I consistently feel stupid and lonely over it.
>>
>>10603249
No, I mean it's designed to milk as much money from you as possible. They use some very scummy tactics with their algorithms. I used it to meet a lot of people but I realized I was spending way too much time on it and being obsessive so I deleted it. Also I kind of got annoyed at just hooking up with random people I didn't actually like, but maybe that's just me.

>>10603244
I'm not sure there is one, desu. I'd say meet people in person but that's pretty hard right now. And I agree with you about people not taking care of themselves. Its insane. I lift and run but im at like 20% bodyfat rn, so firmly in thicc man status, and I'm still always the thinnest person at game stores or cons. Currently trying to cut down to like, 12-15% rn, btw. Drives me crazy when I see people guzzing down sodas and eating a whole pizza at game stores.

Funkopops are a huge redflag, unironically. Those figures are pretty cool, at least if they're displayed nicely. Would not make fun of them/10, I mean I paint 40k stuff so I have no room to judge people who collect anime boy figs.

Make friends with lolitas that aren’t the same size as you. I have one friend who’s a few sizes larger than me, and even if we end up liking the same print, we never go for the same cut.

I wear mainly old school sweet and my two lolita friends wear classic and newer AP sweet, so it's fun to share dresses we find for each other and there's not any competition. Posting your DD on /cgl/ does seem retarded though

I'll probably get hated on but here it goes -

Anyone else unemployed right now and dealing with their terrible state unemployment department? Are you in California? Want to be friends and cry together?

I have enough money to keep spending on jfashion, but it just feels bad because right now I've exhausted my normal benefits and I'm waiting on federal extensions. I hate spending money when I have no cash flow. The only thing keeping me happy right now is being able to buy cute things and I can't because I feel so guilty for it.

Waiting for my state department to apply the extensions is a complete shit show. This is the worst I've felt since the pandemic began. I feel so crushed and stupid (for anyone wanting to hate on me, I was unemployed due to company layoffs and I can't even think about getting another job that isn't 100% remote until everyone in my household is fully vaccinated).
>>
I went to town today and decided to stop by Kinokuniya to buy some GLBs. I was out of luck, the GLBs have finally gone out of stock. I guess another local lolita got to them first. I kind of regret not buying up the GLBs up while they were still available. Kinokuniya also stopped importing the other weeb magazines I used to read, so I ended up buying a copy of Otome no Sewing even though I'm not good at sewing. Gonna have a comfy night doing my best to understand the OnS while enjoying the new tea I bought. I hope other anons had an equally comfy day today.

I hope everyone with a romantic partner in this thread enjoys the most loving, emotional, spiritual, romantic sex. :) There's truly no greater bond in the world than sex.

To all asexuals, however: You suck and will never know what love feels like. Don't force others to go without sex, you monsters.

It still disturbs me that asexuals are around, preying on innocent people who need sex.
>>
>>10604264
>preying on innocent people who need sex

by...existing and not wanting to fuck them? does that mean a non-asexual person who doesn't want to fuck someone is also preying on them or did you not think that far ahead when you got up to troll today?
>>
>>10604275
There's no such thing as not wanting to have sex with someone you love romantically if you're not a sociopath. I'm talking about asexuals who abuse people by dating them.
>>
>>10604280
Are non asexual people who are abstinent equally as evil until they get married and fuck?

They could just date other asexual people. Also, no one is forcing you to date someone who is sexual you loon. Make better decisions.

I actually made too much money last year (before getting laid off) to get the Golden State Stimulus. The requirements were pretty low. But I do agree that CA is probably one of the better states to be in during COVID, simply because we've been taking it more seriously than others.

Anyone else feel like this shit has just totally ruined their ability to be happy in the company of other people?
I'm fully vaccinated but I still just get upset when I'm around a lot of other people, especially without space or masks or whatever.

I always had social anxiety and hated big crowds but now it's like next level. I don't think I'll be able to feel normal at a con for like another 10 years and by then will I even want to go to them?

Also, my wife will absolutely never put up the effort to cosplay at home for the sake of my dick. She might put on like part of an outfit and then complain and take it off an hour or two in. I've talked to her about it but it's just uncomfy I guess. She loves cosplaying at cons and then fucking in the hotel room but I guess just fucking isn't a good enough excuse to put it all on. By the time we can enjoy a full con again we will probably be out of shape and shit.

god fucking damn I hate having fat tits
I have to look for shirred or "plus size" dresses only despite being a normal weight because my fucking tits are so big. I even lost 20 lbs trying to make them smaller... Lost maybe 1 cm off my tits and the rest of the weight dropped from my thighs and butt. If I cut them off, I would be able to fit unshirred old AP, MM, not just fatty clothes. I sincerely hope I get breast cancer so I can get a mastectomy covered by my insurance

Try to keep your diet in a healthy level.

rant time. I am so sad. I wish there was a way to order directly from AP and actually get something if you're disabled. I've been having a hard time for years, but at least I used to be able to get some items I wanted. lately I have missed every single item I've tried to get that isn't just sitting in stock. I've tried with autofill, tried getting help from friends, and it seems I just can't move my hands fast enough. I have tried weekly for 8 months now and its getting so frustrating I think I may stop buying new from AP altogether. they probably won't miss my money anyway and I haven't been overly interested in a release since toy doll box. I'm just so sad, I always feel so left behind in everything. honestly this is just another pile of shit stuffed into the shit sandwhich that is my shit life. maybe I'll finally go an hero, im so tired of struggling constantly. but I'd probably fail at that too because of my stupid shit hands. i hate myself.

Do you really think you're entitled to hot selling items just because you're disabled?! What the actual fuck, you must be so full of yourself. Disabled, slow, and mentally deranged. AP doesn't owe you anything.

yesss
it's a brilliant, severely underrated masterpiece. The only thing I remember making me like this was watching Evangelion a decade ago.
Sucks that I have to recommend people to read the manga, because they just don't play VNs. The manga is a masterpiece on its own, but you miss the godlike OST.
I feel dead inside, because I won't ever be able to play it for the first time again.

What is your problem? They never said AP should accommodate them specifically, they're just understandably upset over their limitations. Learn some compassion, you autistic fuck. Being sad is not the same as being entitled, you emotional idiot

don't be sad, anon-chan. I'd help you snag some AP if you'd trust a rando gull. Having more friends to help shop for items, the better chance of getting it.

>>10605354
i would help you but unfortunately i'm an APfag myself. my advice is to make some friends or see if the friends you already have won't help you. or pay someone to do it.
>>
I just realized that I never paid my invoice for Kumya's Love Heart Embroidery. They invoiced me for something for the Classical Release at the same time but never this one.
Now I looked at the email to see when the heck I would get the bill. It says if I didn't get it by the beginning of April I should have emailed them. It says if I didn't pay they might black list me.
I feel like such an idiot and now I am worried I can't order through them anymore. I was so excited for this release and now I am worried I messed it up. I just assumed I would get an email when they needed it. Can I get black listed for their mess up?
>>
>>10605523
they didn't mess up though. it probably got spam filtered by your inbox, and it was your responsibility to contact them ASAP if you didn't receive it. so yeah, you might get blacklisted.
>>
>>10605364
Hmm. I see how that can come off as entitled but, I am not trying to be? just sad that I have literally never gotten something I was really hyped for... I'm not here screaming at the brand am I? don't need to be so fucking rude. I don't even really blame AP just...god it sucks a lot. I wish I wasn't born this way.

>>10605432
that's very sweet of you nonny, I'll give you my email if you're serious about helping me out!

>>10605433
I'm in the USA and not on disability, I work part time. I qualify for benefits but haven't fully applied for them, as I make more money doing my job. I don't worry about rent or bills as my wife pays them so I have nothing but expendable income personally, affording brand isn't a problem, I'm very priveleged besides the whole being disabled thing.

>>10605470
I can barely do shit you are right. my hands are fucked. I'm lucky that I can shovel food in my mouth sometimes.

>>10605487
thank you anon. you are right this isnt worth dying over, even if it really feels awful sometimes. I have severe arthritis and poor motor control since birth.
I do see how I could come off as entitled and wanting them to cater to me, but honestly I don't...I just wish I was born normal like every one else and could keep up. It hurts to always feel so left behind, especially when I so desperately love this fashion. I know I just have to become comfortable buying things on my own terms...I just wish I was normal and could compete with others and have fun too.

>>10605514
I am considering using a shopping service but I'm concerned after seeing so many bad reviews on nearly all of them lately...I'm gonna keep asking my friends for sure, thanks anyway anon
>>
>>10605528
no shopping service can help you t b h. not with the way AP is going rn. if you have good expendable income then the high iq move is to pay a lolita who doesn't like AP to do it for you.

I understand what it's like to have issues and damages follow you to your deathbed. But there are no stat rerolls or resets in life. We have no choice but to compensate with perspective, ingenuity and the help of others. Perhaps you could mount a pair of drumsticks on your wrists and type with them instead of your fingers. Or maybe a sort of hand brace? I'm assuming your digits are refusing to stay still and straight.

>>10605559
you know I know a lot about lesbians. a wizard called sun tofu in a manhwa I read before once said "know thy enemy and you won't lose a hundred battles." and since I'm totally not gay lesbians were my number one enemy back then when I was out questing for a gf. you could probably guess this but my favorite food type is soup. in my research to learn more about my enemy I found out that lesbians favorite food type is finger-food. which is why I said it's rough for anon because her fingers are retarded.

Needed to vent on this for a bit.
I’ve been into EGL fashion for a while now, about 6 years and ongoing. I love it, but the fact that I’ve spent so much money on it to the point of living paycheck-to-paycheck is eating at me and making me more depressed. Its not like I’m maxing out my credit card for it or anything luckily, its just that. I don’t really want to leave the fashion because I love a lot of things about it, though. I love dressing up, meeting new people, and so much more but how much I spend on it is what’s killing me inside despite knowing I don’t have to be a tard about it & just not buy anything period.

Dunno, it’s just eating at me and making me more depressed at this point. I keep wanting to improve myself & actually trying, but I keep fucking it up all over again.
>>
>>10605742
You just gotta budget. I know it is easier said then done, but go on Youtube and look up different ways to do it. See what makes sense to you.

I know people get annoyed when people mention it here but Konmari also helped me get my spending under control. I started looking through all my dresses and seeing what made the dresses I wore the most my favorites. What made the dresses and accessories I was super hype about and never wear less wearable for me was also important. It can help you spot what you will wear and what are just items you are on the hype train for. Sell off those items that make you feel guilty, because you don't want something than makes you feel worse. This might not be for everyone but you can read the book on https://b-ok.cc/ for free.

On the fun side I don't feel bad when I blow a lot on one release because I would only buy it if I wasn't sure I would wear it a lot. If it doesn't fit right when I get it, I sell it. No guilt, just a whoops and move on.

Don't run away from a thing you love because you are out of control or you might just get the same way next time you find something you like. You see the problem now so you can work on setting yourself straight.

>>10605837

You and I have been watching anime for years. We've acclimated and we often forget how much of an acquired taste they are. From our point of view the japanese are a lean people and a bishonen is a throwback to the feudal japanese nobility. For the uninitiated a bishonen is a sickly homosexual. The statues in your pic have a flirty sexual vibe to them. I think selling them would go too far. You bought them because you wanted them, not to make money. But your ex wasn't wrong to feel like he did. Even I feel kinda uncomfortable.
But a hobby is something you do because you like it, not because others do. Generally speaking you should enjoy this private thing in private like >>10603563. For relationships in particular you should keep in mind that you will have to give ground to your partner and also consider what kind of partner you want. Do you want another you who will provide you with comfort? Or do you want someone with other tastes who will teach you things or at least have something else to do when you want space?

Sorry I need 2 vent kek

I've moved a lot in my life but the one I hate the most is when I was 16, it was right after I finished high school (eurofag so different school systems)
I had a lot of friends there, I liked the area and felt at home which I never really did before but now I live 2 hours away (In Europe that's a lot) and I have no friends in the area like zero. I had some friends at uni but now bc of covid I havent seen them in over a year
And I keep seeing ig posts of my old friends hanging out and it's so depressing even though I moved 7 years ago I fucking hate the place I live now and the worst part is even if I would move back it won't be the same anymore

My bad. Most guys see and experience dating as a one-at-a-time thing, so they regard it as a soft commitment. It'll come across better if you tell other guys "we weren't commited yet" instead.

I'm about to leave my house for what is essentially the first time I've done so since the Corona started. My sister's about to be in a (small) performance in a couple weeks and me and my parents are going to go watch her.
It's not like I'm afraid of the flu, but it seemed really scary and stressful out there with how panicked everyone is and all these social distancing and stuff so I just haven't gone out, at all. I kinda needed to go to the doctor for a few things but I just put everything off while waiting for "things to get better", didn't think I'd be placing my life on hold for THIS long though...
I've been putting together a coord over these past 15 months and it'll be not just my first time being outside in over a year, but also my first time in lolita. My sister inspired me to give lolita a go since it really does seem magnificent, I had no idea there was such a following for this style but I've always loved that aesthetic! I've been preparing for my first little "return to society" ever since and I'm both super excited and nervous!

I just hope it's not TOO bad out there. From what my family's told me things have calmed down a lot.
>>
I've been thinking about this incident that happened a few years back at a local con

I'm over 30 and have younger friends that cosplay. Namely my friend's nephew and his friends. We were at a con where they were doing and Attack on Titan group cosplay. Me and my GF at the time were cosplaying as Kaito and Luka from Vocaloid. As we were talking in the hall, this awkward guy came up and was very vocal about how he thought Vocaloid and AoT were stupid. I have very low tolerance for this so I told him that no one asked him for his opinion nor cared about his opinion and he should leave. He started apologizing and asked if he could get a picture with the Mikasa from the AoT group. She told him to fuck off. Then he asked if he could have her number. WTF? I got between them and told him he needed to fuck off and no one wanted him here.

That's when some other older guy came in and started saying we needed to be nicer to him. This guy explained that he was the father of his adult son who had autism. Sorry, but I have no need to be nice to someone who insulted me and my friends nor should I excuse is behavior because of his condition. This attracted securities' attention. Security had already dealt with this autist causing problems with other people and eventually he and his father were removed from the con. What frustrates me so much about the entire situation is someone tried make me feel like the bad guy for protecting younger girls from a creeper.

I know this shouldn't bother me but it still does.

If what I said offended you, then you'll hate what else I have to say.
The last thing I'd want is to have to cover myself up after waiting all this time to go out again. I've heard the mask rules are pretty lax where I live so, if I can help it, I'll be going without.
If things go well, maybe I'll start going out more often. I do so miss the outside.

im not a natural at public speaking but over the past few months ive felt more confident at it, so i put myself forward to do something a little like it at work. i thought it went well and felt good about it during and afterwards. today i got feedback on it and the feedback was just “you lacked confidence and everyone focused on that, you came across as stiff and you didn’t make people feel reassured or at ease”. i really thought i had gained confidence over the past few months and to me the experience felt relaxed (people laughed naturally and were attentive to what i was saying, i made eye contact and felt confident at the time) so now im just at a loss that my perception of it was at complete odds with how it was received. maybe i am an autist??? i really don’t know where to go from here if even when i think im finally doing a good job, im way off the mark. sucks man

Being called a 'they/them' pisses me the fuck off. I'm clearly and unmistakably a woman. People changing the standard of language to not offend a tiny minority is retarded. Most people go by she or he. A tiny fraction of mentally ill people call themselves 'they'. Why are we punishing the majority because a select few are mentally ill.

Furthermore, I find being called 'they' or calling someone else 'they' to be dehumanizing. It's basically one step up from being called 'it'...

Why is it okay to misgender everyone by saying 'they'. But not okay to misgender a 'they/them' and call them he or she. The hypocrisy is undeniable.

As the alchemist seeks to hack reality and turn metal to gold, so does the dieter seek to create a filling food with few calories. I put on extra weight over the lockdowns too. So far I have found that you can make puree with water instead of milk and butter. I will be experimenting with yogurt, icecream and protein powder to make a food that fills you like lunch and tastes like dessert. I suggest you look up stevia sodas too. There is a local brand that has 70kcal per litre.

I want to make it through one cup of coffee without hearing about what thing someone else needs me to do next.

>Don't own a scale
>Usually only weigh myself at bathhouse
>Local bathhouse keeps making restrictions and booking weird
>Partner decided he'd rather not bother going swimming
>I agree since I'm also worn out by their bullshit
>Realise I will not know my weight unless I go
>Or buy a scale myself

I'm overthinking a simple household item that can be stored away easily, why am I like this?
>>
>>10606957
stop acting like a fob and get a better phone
>>
>>10607287
I get that. I hate buying unfun things. If you can get it somewhere else for free it would be fine. Might be worth waiting if you plan on going back after the scheduling gets better. If you count calories you won't really be in danger of ballooning up.
>>
>>10607287

Anon a scale is like $20 on amazon. Just get one it makes life so much easier.
>>
>>10607295
>>10607299
I'm masking up and heading to a store tomorrow. I've been needing a shoe rack as well.
>unfun things
That really hit the nail on the head. Unfun, functional things are awful.

A girl from my comm says she can't use tampons because they hurt. Turns out she doesn't know you're supposed to unwrap them.
>>
>>10607321
My aunt told me when she was younger she hated them becasue she didnt know/was never told you had to take the applicator out. Poor girl probably had a conservative upbringing with a parent who didnt want to teach her anything at all
>>
>>10607321
>>10607324
While I’m sure these stories are true, what I don’t understand about these people is that every box of tampons comes with a big packet of clear, illustrated instructions.
>>
>>10607328
Not everyone gets them in a box! Pretty sure my first attempt, I was handed a random tampon and a wish and a prayer. Couldn’t get it in for the life of me.

>didn't think I had gained that much weight over Rona, but noticed thighs and stomach are squishier than before
>put on a pair of jeans that I wore all the time before Rona
>they're tight
>TIGHT tight
>remember most of my dresses were already a bit snug around the torso BEFORE Rona
I'm scared to try them on. I want to live in ignorance and lie to myself that they'll still fit.
>>
>>10607356
Get on the scale and get on a diet, fatty-chan. You can't wish the weight away.

I feel this something awful. So many little family stores around me have closed down, while every fast food joint has a mile-long string of cars in the drive-thru. A bunch of my favorite little eateries are gone.
>tfw super cute cafe that made souffle pancakes and brick toast is gone
>>
>>10607552
this is happening to me too thank fuck i can cook.
>>
>>10607552
I hear about this happening all over the country and I see long lines at the fast food places here too, but actually in my city the restaurant spaces that have closed have already been taken over by new independent restaurants and a bunch of Subways and Dunkin type places have also closed and been taken over by independent spots (or at least local franchises). Everyone says California laws are bad for small businesses, and on paper that seems true to me, but having lived in most of the other regions of the country it seems more like that California business owners pay a premium in exchange for actually having a market.
>>
>>10607585
I can cook too, but sometimes it's nice to go out and some things are such a pain to make at home that it's not worth it.

My friend doesn't dress up and go out with me any more because her boyfriend demands all of her free time and stresses her out so much that she's been overeating and putting on weight.
>>
>>10607621
It sounds like she has ended up in an abusive relationship. Read up on Mate Renetion Behaviours and see that her bf is probably doing a lot of them. Her putting on weight from stress makes it sound super serious. I've also heard of abusive men enjoying when their girlfriends put on weight because it lowers their self esteem and thus makes them more likely to stay in the abusive relationship.

I hope you can reach out to your friends and express your concern in a way that makes her listen. That man is definitely not good for her.
>>
>>10607636
I definitely know that her boyfriend is emotionally abusive. I know the guy and he's not 100% bad (which is partly why the friend remains devoted to him), but he's insanely needy and self-centered. I continuely point out when he's gaslighting her and express to her that I don't like how he's making her feel, but... here am I still without her company.
>>
>>10607621
Someone's gotta tell him to quit acting like a girlfriend

After lurking here and looking at pretty dresses for like 6 years I finally decided to go for it, and spent almost all my stimmy and money I've been saving from working at home and not hanging out with friends on lolita. I don't have anywhere to wear it yet but putting on a full coord before work makes me incredibly happy and I hate that I waited so long to start wearing it. Looking at the prices pieces I want were selling for 6 years ago makes me sad kek
>>
>>10602846
As long as IRL cons are banned, travelling abroad will be too probably
>>
>>10607677
heyoooo
>>
>>10607720
if any one has second sky tickets I will hang out with them free of charge
>>
>>10607757
You’re too kind
>>
Somehow managed to nab two dresses that had been on my wishlist for the last couple of years in the same day. I overpaid for both, but in the current secondhand market it's nice knowing the search is finally over before prices get even more insane.
>>
>>10607791
Same here anon!! May your dresses arrive safely and may you feel as cute as you imagined you would in them~
>>
I basically completely left the "online community" meaning i stopped posting coords online, basically. My grandpa was in town and asked me to get lunch (we're both vaccinated) - I got dressed in casual lolita and it felt really nice to just view my lolita as clothes and, yknow, get dressed as if it was no big deal.
>>
>>10606963
People that say "they" usually aren't even doing it for the enby apes, they're just saying it to not accidentally piss off a he/him lesbian or an unshaven she/her showing HER totally valid gender identity. People just want to play it safe so that they don't have to hear "Don't call anybody" while getting pepper sprayed by trans Ben Franklin.
>>
>>10607879
I wish people did and posted their casual cords more. It’s a fashion and should be worn regularly and not always expected to be ott.
>>
>>10607757
Is second sky good? I'm wary of the event because it's in Cali. Also worried about the usual issues at EDM concerts.
How big a group do you usually need to go with to have a good time? You go to them often soup? I'll grab us tickets.
>>
I need thinspo but for guys, what’s good out there
>>
>>10607937
just go to /fa/, they've literally have ongoing thin/weight loss/anorexia generals for years. truly our male equivalent
>>
>>10607937
if you're too retarded to find it yourself you don't deserve it desu
>>
>>10607939
>>10607937
/fit/ is pretty good for this too, but /fa/ does have dedicated thinspo threads yeah
>>
To the newbie who just outbid me on my dream dress: DO NOT
>>
>>10607939
Wait, so /fa/ can still have one but we can’t?
Lameeeee
>>
>>10608032
without giving away what dress ofc, how do you know the other person is a newbie?
>>
>>10608036
KEK
>>
>>10608039
Their profile is 9 days old
Doesn't necessarily mean they're new to lolita overall but still
I'm just puffed up about it
>>
>>10608042
hah I get that though, when I get outbid a small part of me also checks out the others feedback as if that tells me if they're worthy of winning

Yep lmao she could be the sweetest cutest lolita ever but she has bid against me (on a dream dress no less) thus declaring war and now she can either back down or pay with her blood
>>
>>10608032
Beat them into submission, anon.

>>10608042
Seriously, chase them out of lolita.

Looking at them outbidding you like "wow why you have to make it personal like that baka"
>>
>>10608053
ugh I forgot it changes s.m.h to that atrocity
>>
how are there this many anons who don’t recognize the btssb phone pouches? summer is eternal
>>
>>10608054
Yeah it was meant to discourage Twitter/election tourists, but some retards just don't learn.
>>
>>10607903
I dunno never been to one but since cons are closed thought it might be a fun alternative. tickets sold out super fast yesterday
>>
>>10608043
In another life, the other bidders and I could have been friends. But this cannot be forgiven.
>>
>>10608453
Stubhub still has them, probably resell scalpers and all that
What cons have you gone to before soup? I'm still working on getting to one but I'm super worried I'll end up sticking out.

As for the rest of you, what's the solo con experience like vs the con experience with friends? I've been to only a single con before, alone, and it was definitely fun, but how does that experience differ?
