New Lolita GeneralOld one >>10728687
>>10749395Good god OPDiscuss: >New releases>General Drama>Any plans for Easter coords?Meta just announced new Strawberry Dress that comes in two varieties and in two sizes.Innocent World is having an Instagram Live event on the 18thQuestion for you gulls:>You have total access to every dress/etc to make your dream Easter coord, what do you pick?
>>10751529Nakayoshi Bunny, too bad it'll be ages
>>10751531With or without the gay little bonnet?
>>10751533Well it's more fun to wear a gay little bonnet, so with obv
>>10751529You had an opportunity to avoid thisSorry
>>10751529I pick marshmallow bunny. It's been one of my favorite prints since I was a teen.
>>10751529Fuck yes updates like this are the only reason I visit this godforsaken site bc I don't have time to visit every brand's social media every day
Nakayoshi is a top tier choice, I'm also font of bunny pocket and holy theatre. What I actually own is mercator, so she's gonna have another day on the town this Easter.
>>10751529>You have total access to every dress/etc to make your dream Easter coord, what do you pickRococo bouquet
I love how Mana being seen as patron saint is still a thing among jp gothic lolitas.https://twitter.com/AyanoCentipedes/status/1513815061701468166
>>10751529>You have total access to every dress/etc to make your dream Easter coord, what do you pick?Happy Garden. More specifically, the Going Out set. It's just so cute!
any regular japonica market users here? have you noticed anything off about their service in the last few weeks?they cost me 2 different listings from dropping the ball and have gone silent updating my order status. their replies are really short/vague. I've been using them for over 6 years and never had a problem until now
>>10751641None of these coords would be good, brown shoes with a cream bag and cheap lace tights? At least throw in a brown bag or some cream shoes
>>10751804They're still pretty fast buying things for me (usually within 30 minutes or so and even outside of their working hours sometimes) but my last couple orders they've been extremely slow when it comes to actually shipping them out, stating an influx of orders as the reason.
>>10751843found the sweet
Did uniqlo copy this print from Jane Marple?
>>10751804I have, I partially stopped using them after their customer service went down
>>10751868Why do you think its a copy, not that its a commercially available fabric?
>>10751879I asked a question, I didn't state what I think. Does Jane Marple use commercially available fabric or are you suggesting Uniqlo used fabric from a company that copied from Jane Maple instead of using their own fabrics? I don't know that's why I'm asking here
Or is it a common print that lots of brands have used in different art styles. Pic related is from JM and does look slightly different>>10751891
>>10751868Dude that's a Paul & Joe collab and it's their own design, they've been releasing items with this design forever
>>10751868This print is from Uniqlo’s collab with Paul and Joe. The latter often make prints in this style.
>>10751641Good fucking taste my dude
>>10751846They aren't one of us, brown shoes with pink/red/gingham is traditional as apple pie
>>10751641Why are you making me fall in love with rococo bouquet
>>10751967sorry for the mistake then! anon must just be a newfag.
Seems like BTSSB's designers were on some show recently?>https://twitter.com/BABY_THE_STARS/status/1514550094456311817/
>>10751897>>10751898It still looks too similar to the JM print to be a coincidence
>>10752080If anything it's JM that copied them, they basically started out as a Vivienne Westwood knockoff brand
>>10752083Possibly but the JM print came out earlier, unless the Uniqlo one is a re-release
>>10752098Paul & Joe (who the print is from, this is a Uniqlo collaboration) has been doing this print forever, like other anon said above
>>10752098Oh yeah, I believe this P&J print existed before the collab - it's just one of their standard patterns
>>10751845>>10751876I'm going to switch to a new SS. I wanted to call them out so bad when they took 5 fucking days to order something and it sold to someone else because of it. With Japanese companies, you can't just bluntly ask them what's up or to fix something.So yeah if anyone is looking for a Japanese SS, I don't recommend trying Japonica first
What do you nonnys think of Axes Femme coming out with an official lolita line?
>>10752373Axes femme kawaii have been doing lolita stuff for ages. this isn't new.
>>10752373Axes Femme Kawaii has been around for years. Are you ok anon? Did you wake up from a coma?
>>10752464Nah I just ignore anything that isn't AP, BABY, and Meta desu I apologize
>>10752373Ok I've been gone too long and have been wondering; what the fuck does "nonny" mean?
>>10752543its just a goofy way of saying anon
Firs time CGL poster, so basicall I'm running a few after party events for Comicon London in May, and I'm committing to the fact I'm gonna maid it up for fun on the night. Any go to websites where the quality is better? I'm kinda expecting that unless I'm spending £200+ In gonna get that Alibaba quality and feel.
>>10752566meido isn't lolita you faggot.
>>10752569Looks that way from the outside you trash heap of a human.I'm guessing the lolita crowd know where to get a good fucking dress is the main point of this.
>>10752570insulting the demographic you're relying on won't help you kek. go find your fetish trash elsewhere.
>>10752566You need to find out your measurements in cm (chest, waist, hips, and shoulders). If you're a guy you'll have a hard time fitting most Japanese brands. You'll probably have to look for "plus-sized" pieces. Also, if your event is in May you're going to struggle to get something shipped to you in time.This is a plus size dress that might work for you. You'd still need to get a maid headdress.cdjapan.co.jp/product/ NEOAPP-43356t b h you'll probably get better results asking in the cosplay general. They might be able to point you to a western seller who could have your costume shipped to you on time.
>>10752648completely genuinely and unironically, kill yourself.
>>10751706Some years I wore the regular happy garden skirt to church for Easter vigil . It is so cute
>>10752570Ignore the trolls ITT, going with Milanoo will be your safest bet.
>>10752710This. I've had nothing but good experiences with them and the quality is good for what you get.
>>10751876>>10752155Which other SS should i use? I'm waiting for them to update me on a skirt I've been searching for a couple of years. It's still not bought on mercari so thinking of sending it to another SS now
>>10752570Alixpress is great for all your lolita maid cosplay needs!
yo, wtf is happening on btssb/aatp's website? It has zero items on it suddenly. Is the san fran store closing or something?
>>10752946Why do you guys always jump to weird conclusions and not like oh they fucked up something on the site. God you are stupid
>>10752946Always make sure to read their blog posts if you're confused about something
>>10752950>>10752952welp, I should have paid more attention.
>>10752566Maybe check out Devil Inspired? Fast, easy shipping, good quality and good prices.
>>10753311It was obviously sarcasm
>>10753311dude is asking for maid dresses retard.
>>10752543lurk more nonny
So, does anyone know how many hours Antique Beast was open? Did you get anything? It's the second sale I wanted to at least look at, maybe not buy anything, that I completely missed. The first was Mossbadger divination skirts.
>>10753750I set up email alerts but didn't receive an email. I'm confused, do they sell out/shut down again in minutes?
>>10753753They were open the 16th. I saw it on Lolita Updates too. Looking at the website, it happened, we missed it.
>>10753750You can always look at their site. It was open for 2 hours, but they dont hide the items you can buy.
>>10753824I'll have to look more closely next time. And I will browse there. They're great inspiration for things to go with fancy trims.

>>10754235They're going down clolita lane too now aren't they
>>10754235They shredded grandma's good couch for this, didn't they?
>>10754235it’s like an infinitely worse version of this 2007 jsk…
>>10754254do chinese lolitas even care about mmm tho? i don't think i've seen even one gothic chinese gothic lolita, just a million classic and sweet, hence why there's so few taobao brands that even release gothic dresses
>>10754319chinese lolitas don't seem to care about real gothic lolita, just a weird version of it, that's probably why anon thinks this is catering to them, it's more similar to their version of it.
>>10754319No, but this doesn't look like usual MMM it's leaning into that classic/sweet market to catch the girls who will spend the $$
>>10754235Very basic but it's cute. Just as long as the material has some good weight to it and isn't thin i don't see why everyone hates it? My only gripe is that this is such an odd colourway for MMM to release, there's no way it appeals to normal moitie fans.
>>10754289The ribbon trim at the neckline and the bustle really ups the cuteness factor. I do wish the new release had a bustle too.
>>10754235I think it's cute, but it is sad to see the lack of detail on it compared to that 2007 release. I won't be getting it as I just spent a bunch of money on Antique Beast.In any event, the colorway isn't new to Moitie. It's not a common one, but they've done a few blouses and a couple of main pieces in the color combination before. It's very pretty.https://lolibrary.org/items/moitie-small-flower-embroidery-ophttps://lolibrary.org/items/moitie-cross-original-lace-pin-tucked-blousehttps://lolibrary.org/items/moitie-pin-tucked-frill-cardiganhttps://lolibrary.org/items/moitie-rose-lace-frilled-jskhttps://lolibrary.org/items/moitie-voile-lace-blouse
>>10754357>>10754376Newfags confirmed.>>10754413I think it's really pretty for a spring/summer coord but not for the price that they're asking. Maybe I'd consider it when it goes on sale. The lack of details on Nu-moitie has been a constant disappointment.
>>10754416More like 'so old that Harpsichord Trio seems like a new release capitalizing on the JetJ art print classic trend'
>>10754416it's still nu-mmm, it looks nothing like their older stuff, especially the awful colors.
>>10754413I literally keep forgetting that moitie have released things in this colon because I don't follow anybody doesn't wear gothic.
This shit is so cute, I especially love the hot air balloon buttons at the waist ties
>>10754821My eyes are always dragged towards the two together on the swing
>>10754821I was thinking about getting it..but the bf talked me out of it. It kind of looks like a mess holistically design wise, but it is cute.
>>10754872your bf is a moron with no taste.
>>10754434Anon literally read 3 posts up >>10754413
>>10754874Nah anon. I looked at it for a while and realized, it is a mess design wise. It doesn't look that good from far away and it's far too faded for most of the designs. The print they show on the website is way more vivid than the actual dress.It looks faded on top of being cluttered.. lol
>>10751876Same here. They also sent another gulls AP dress to the wrong person which really put me off.
>>10755010Did they actually? That's an amateur move.
>>10754886Pastel baby prints like this always look washed out on their stock photos I find. Kumya’s Twinkle Cosmetics in sax was way more saturated irl.I really love the black colourway. Both jsks are still available so I’m debating it. Tenshi mentioned a store-limited navy colourway though which intrigues me more, I’m a slut for navy baby prints
Does anyone remember the young japanese lolita? Is she still on social media? She used to wear almost exclusively AP and sometimes she matched with her mother. She used to go by capricious frill or something along those lines. She was known from that childrens rooms from around the world photo series.
>>10757201I know who you're talking about, but I refuse to google "japanese lolita child", so you're outta luck
>>10757218I found her. Her name was frilly capricious and it led to a locked twitter account that says she no longer wears the fashion. Bummer, I always thought her posts were so cute.
>>10757245She’s got to be a teenager now, so she might not like the fashion like she did as a little girl. I thought it was adorable that her mom would make the dresses for her out of the skirts. But I can also imagine getting older and thinking it’s too childlike. I was obsessed with seeming grown up as a teen.
>>10757201Was that the girl whose home burned down and she made a post with a sad ash covered kumya?
>>10757245She came back to Instagram I think even though it says she's "graduated from the fashion". >>10757253I'm pretty sure that's the idol girl who used to have a big mole on her face
>>10751876I think they’re just flooded with orders at this point. Last time they didn’t inform me that they had bought an item and took a couple more days to make the invoice.I wonder what caused the influx of orders they’re getting, I don’t even think they’re accepting orders from new people at the moment.
I’m coming back to lolita after a while and am finding the clothes to be very expensive. Has the secondhand market rate gone up? Or am I just looking in the wrong places? Haven’t used Y!J auctions yet. I bought a few items from closet child.
>>10758215I mean, the global economy is a mess right now because there’s a war going on. What did you expect?
>>10758222Theres been a war going on for decades anon whats so different
>>10758215Lolita boomed when COVID hit so unfortunately everything is more expensive
>>10758263... the pandemic?
>>10758215i think its also just new releases have sucked for many brands over the past couple years or so, and when an actually good dress comes out everyone wants it so it holds it value for reselling too. there are plenty of newer releases that I never see popup secondhandthen general trends of now everyone is into old school, original moitie and "golden age" ap now so all those prices have blown up
>>10758263This time white people are getting killed so the war is more important
How can I find lolita related happenings and events in Japan? what are some search tags I can use to find them? My Japanese is mediocre but I want to try going to markets and the like.
>>10758368Hell, even the prices for MM have reached new heights. VM too, to a lesser extent.
I have nowhere else to post this but herethe most scottish post I ever did see
>>10760606sounds like an american larping a scot. why would anyone even want to do that
>>10760612Reminds me of the scandal where nearly every article on the Scots version of Wikipedia was written by an American teenager and nobody cared for years
>>10757253That’s the mole girl mentioned here >>10757280Her mother forces her to wear lolita and to become an idol. She shoves the poor girl in front of well known people such as Misako and Tokyo Fashion to sponge off them. The mom gives me bad vibes and will redirect conversations to only talk about herself and her daughter.
I decided to take a look at the Bodyline website for the first time in ages. Found a couple of bargains but when I went to checkout, I couldn't select the 'P-mail' option. Anyone know about this? There doesn't seem much point in spending more on shipping than the items themselves. Is there a way round it? Have I missed something?
>>10760424Not sure it's exactly what you're looking for, but there's a closed FB group for English-speaking lolitas in Tokyo. You'll need to provide proof of residence/tickets to get accepted
Okay, this is not really a lolita question but I am having a total mental blank and hope you gulls can help. What was the style that got big around the same time as mori-kei which was more into rich jewel tones but otherwsie kind of similar in vibe?
>>10761594they stopped offering pmail because of the pandemic and then never brought it back
>>10761622Thanks anon. I hope they come up with some cheaper shipping options or deals at some point, it's probably putting off a lot of overseas buyers.
Did those whores at AP USA ever find our missing items or what? They could've refunded us if not, the stuff I want is still on the JP site
>>10761623>>10761672Thanks anons. I think it must have been dolly kei.
How often does BTSSB drop their old school rereleases?
>>10761761It’s not AP US’s fault. Blame the shitty postal service. The US uses couriers which are worse than what a third world country has. I wish I was joking.
>>10761882As someone who buys stuff online all the time from so many countries, USPS is far superior than most private postal services. I've had multiple issues with other postal services outside of the US and UPS or FedEx. DHL is more reliable but rare issues with customs for them like multiple times having packages get so destroyed during customs they had to be repackaged by DHL and I was notified of it.But with USPS as soon as it gets on American soil zero issues most of the time. And domestically zero issues. Maybe a bit slower back at the peak of the pandemic but even when mail in voting was taking up a ton of resources a package from California took maybe a week and a half instead of a week. I live in a major city though and I have had a shitty USPS driver for my neighborhood back in high school but it was one person who consistently did poorly, while everyone else was fine.
>>10761882AP USA charges so much for insurance though. They should refund us the money or start charging less for shipping
>>10761888As an online seller I've always felt USPS gets unfairly shit on. I've had far fewer problems with them than any other service
>>10761990This. Like yes there are occasional fuck ups but rarely is it due to the postal service and most often in my neighborhood has to do with porch pirates and stolen postal keys from carriers getting robbed at gunpoint. Even with that I haven't had a package stolen or lost almost ever with USPS because I live in an apartment that has secure package storage rooms. Other carriers manage to fuck shit up way more than USPS somehow even when controlling for that. The anti USPS sentiment is not really warranted.
>>10751804I use japonica but it's been shitty for a while. My old SS stopped working completely. Japonica loses me anything that is popular or a good price. They're definitely slow but reliable
>>10762005Jumping on the USPS bandwagon to say USPS is always so gentle with my packages and makes sure to hide them behind my furniture on deck. Meanwhile DHL just fucking chucks it in the general direction of my address. I really do like them and the number of quality of life services they have for free or cheap is astounding.
>>10761990NAH, fuck them. Their tracking sucks and they've lost two of my past three packages
>>10762114Agreed. The amount of times I've seen my package sit at my local post office for days for no reason or even get misplaced for weeks is infuriating. I've never had any other service leave a package past the estimated delivery day, even during the height of COVID, and their tracking is always precise, but with USPS my packages go days without updates and I've had packages arrive a week past their estimated delivery. I'll use them for orders within the US to save money but I go for Fedex and DHL for international packages to save myself from stress.
>>10762320This. Fedex has awful service where I'm at so I use DHL for anything I care about and EMS for everything else. I've had things get lost but it's never the fault of my local USPS. While my local branch is fine, USPS as a whole is garbage and I only use them when I have to.
ripped from btb, not sure where it goes but got a hearty kek. how are my fellow caregiver littles today?
>>10762353Cranky, daddy hasn't changed my crinkle winkle thong diaper yet.
I give up. I came to this board to be a sex pest because there are women here and a board about women taking about their cosplays could only be sensual right?Wrong.It's equal parts boring and cringe and even the threads about posting bad cosplays and laughing at them are boring because they're bad in boring unspectacular ways. The pics of the girl dressed in realistic KLK outfit were decent but nothing else interesting was seen during my sojourns to this board. I give up, I see the errors of my essays and I will become a gay as penance. Now I will browse this one last thread and then go to sleep forever from boredom.
>>10751613Oh yeah btw just look for some Twitter or insta that posts new releases and need and subscribe or set up an RSS to your email, then your won't have to come here at allOff to die now goodbye
>>10761882What? If it's shipping from the manufacturer, it's likely they do it by boat way ahead of schedule.
>>10762370You fucking mong. Kys you "sensual" scrote.
>>10762331NAYRT but I also only use DHL or UPS now.USPS has sent me packages with gaping holes, sometimes with items broken or missing from falling out, crushed or soaking wet boxes, or, my favorite, they constantly put my items in the wrong mailbox or at wrong house. My favorite is when the packaging somehow got so destroyed by them that the item literally flew out of the box and it's a 50/50 change that I still get the item in their We're Sorry bag or if I get the empty packaging shoved into my mailbox with nothing inside.9/10 times I pay for full insurance and get signature confirmation and this still happens. Sometimes they even lie and say I signed for something when I didn't. It is such a pain in the ass trying to file for a missing package as well. Every time it takes forever and the person helping me seems like they don't even know how to do their job. Fedex once lost a package of mine too. I have a doorcam and they never delivered it. It was a huge box. But the tracking said delivered so they did nothing about it.UPS and DHL have been incredible. I have yet to get an obliterated box and the few times UPS delivered to the wrong house, they reimbursed me. Never had an issue with DHL ever.Fuck USPS. Fedex was usually okay but that one time my package vanished in thin air made me not trust them anymore.
