First for Zombie Lolita!
favorite piece is van helsing academy by violet fane, when I wore it before covid, everyone complimented me on it.
>>10628382Yikes. VF is shit quality
>>10628393different anon, I agree, but man that print is so nice. I wish they'd use better fabrics and have better construction because I really love that print. Their shit quality is what deterred me from buying that series.
>>10628397i can agree to that. i do wish the fabric was a bit better but i'm overall happy with the dress. i love the print and i wish there are more vampire hunter prints like it.
>>10628397if the fabric was better quality i'd have bought Otome Nostalgia even though it doesn't match a single thing i own.
>>10628669Otome Nostalgia in a cotton would have been super nice and way better for summer. That dress makes me sweat like crazy and I washed the belt on a gentle cycle just so if the dress faded it would still match, and it FELL APART, the lining just fell off. I've never had interfacing or lining on an item just get wrecked and peel like a banana in the wash (heck, a banana would have held together better in my washing machine). I guess if you get a stain on your ON belt you're fucked and have to dry clean or spot clean it. Probably going to make myself a white leather belt that is actually well constructed and repurpose the heart buckle on that.For the shit service, shipping my order late, the wonky headbow that looked awful, and the fabric, I think ON and VF has made me certain I will never waste burando level dollars on an indie brand again.
>>10628685>Gentle cycleYou realize that Japanese companies have said if you're going to wash lolita, then to hand wash, right? What the hell made you think putting something in the wash was a good idea..
>>10628697plenty of lolita can be run through the washer on a gentle cold cycle, it's not like it'll fall apart like fast fashion lol
>>10628697>You realize that Japanese companies have saidAnon, VF is not a Japanese company and the items are polyester, on top of that it is well known that Japanese companies call everything dry clean only when you can easily wash most stuff with no issues, cotton, poly, etc. And Japanese companies usually say dry clean, not handwash.Only the newest of people are unaware of this obvious fact. Which, there is nothing wrong with being new, but don't come in thinking you're educating someone on something and larping so hard when you're just incorrect.
>>10628685do you think they'd ever do an MTO for cotton reprints?
>>10628697Japanese companies write that in English but in Japanese they write the actual care instructions which are usually what cycle to use.
>>10628218Continuing from last thread, what would be another hidden detail in a print you'd like to see?
>>10628757I'd love to see insects.Butterflies, ants, beetles... Incorporated in a tasteful manner
>>10628757not so much a hidden detail but more interesting print motifs in general. not the hyperspecific taobao type shit>different religious motifs, book of revelations type shit>medieval art, mythology, etc>dragons (dragon-chan notwithstanding)>spooky medieval unicorns
>>10628757it's dumb and im not sure it could be done in a tasteful manner but i would like to see someone do corpses well as something other than the focus of a print. Various stages of decay, half buried. That sort of thing. Death is always Vampires and clean skeletons and whatnot, but i'd like to see a decayed body in a coffin occasionally. Or at the very least someone with wrinkles. I feel like Aristocrat has a lot more skirt space and could probably pull it off if you were smart. Plus it would be the style most suited to having images of older people on it.
>>10628955This is giving me dorian gray vibes and I am consumed with need
I hate myself for not saving them, but does anyone have pictures of Mana wearing lighter-colored clothes? I know there's one with that yellow two-piece and I think a bunny sort of outfit? Not sure if there's more but I'd love to see them! And pictures of anyone wearing light-colored coords with gothic makeup, really.
Before the time when Lolibrary was completely down I used to be obsessed with identifying unknown MmM items, collecting photos from mercari, Tokyo Alice, lj wardrobe posts, my own wardrobe, items belonging to friends etc. I completely lost all the motivation during the almost two years (?) that Lolibrary was "gone" and this folder of 523 photos of either items that at the time wasn't listed or the photos on the items were grainy 2002 stock photos have been untouched since. I'm now doing a digital cleanse and would like to pass the torch to someone else out there. I assume some of these items/better photos have since been added to Lolibrary and I've heard they have a massive backlog. I don't have the motivation to sort out which of them or access to the backlog so I'm leaving that to you guys.Here you go, hopefully all photos went through:https://imgur.com/a/0iw6ikV
>>10633842that's really interesting to browse through thanks for posting this anon, there's some pieces on here that I've never seen before
>>10633842Thank you for this anon!
>order a custom sized skirt from AB>anons say she tends to run a few cms large so to tell her your actual measurements, tell her to make the waistband 68 cm (mine is 68)>skirt arrives>waistband is exactly 68, look super weird in it>dammit
>>10633898so wait, you said your actual measurement is 68, and that is what you got. Sorry, am confused as to what you are saying.
>>10633930Anons prev said to give her your actual body measurements since she tends to make her items a few cms larger than what she tells you, she didn't do that this time and it's exactly my body measurements
>>10633842Thank you anon! You saved some photos of listings I bought and I never saved them myself.Also that coffin guitar case, wasn’t that one made by a fan and mot moitie itself?
>>10633143>Mana wearing lighter-colored clothesthis is not lolita, but it is Moitie, and it is lovely
>>10633143>pictures of anyone wearing light-colored coords with gothic makeup,
>>10633842Thank you anon, I'm sure someone working with Lolibrary can find this useful!
>>10634086>>10634087>>10634089>>10634105>>10634092These ones read more classic than gothic but thanks for taking your time to dump a few pics!
>>10634211you are welcome. you mentioned wanting light colored coords with gothic makeup, which i interpreted as not necessarily gothic coords, which also helped break up the "moitie in floral or white" coords. i am glad some were useful though!
>>10633842you are a god bless anon! Thank you!
>>10633969ayrt I think I saw someone on here dig up tweets of the seller making it themselves, it's probably in the archives, iirc Tamie bought it?
