Ok guys I really want a furry gf, one that’s pale and post shitty art on Instagram that wears ears and a tail. You know how sexy that is? Im not a furry though so I’m afraid she won’t be into me because I don’t have nor want a fursona. Where do I look?

How on Earth do you know what are they going to use money for? It could be leaving lolita sale or they're just downsizing their wardrobe, or basically need some money to pay bills. Like literally whatever reason.

>if you can afford [dress name], try looking for indie.
Okay, I'm NOT telling to support replicas, but what's the point of redirecting people into buying random ass things. It's like telling a person who's looking for fries to go get some apples.

It’s true that buying secondhand brand = supporting the brand though. Rather disingenuous to say that it’s on the same level of buying offbrand or replica in terms of support. Yes, the flow of money doesn’t directly enter the brand’s pocket but think of consignment shops.Those are indirect sales yet no one would argue that you aren’t supporting the product just because you didn’t buy it from the source.

Is Taobao really significantly cheaper than secondhand when it comes to those specific AP prints in those specific cuts that you want? I’m no expert on replicas, so you tell me.

Color balance is a fairly new idea, look at how old snaps and brand ads uses color. I'm not making excuses for bad oldschool but I think it's important newfags not fall into rote memorization of new "rules" that are more preference than objective truth. Throwing on random trinkets to "add black" or "add red" can end up looking worse than just a pop of red in matching headbow and shoes with no other red. It's about using taste and style to create a cohesive look within the lolita aesthetic. Throwing on a black slap bracelet to match black shoes is not necessary. Matching hair to shoes is also a stupid modern misunderstanding of oldschool and color theory. Neutrals like brown and black can be used regardless of hair color, that's what makes them neutral. They look good as long as your neutral tones don't clash like black and brown, oxblood and tan, etc. often can

Only buy from CCF if you have no other options. While I appreciate their size range and design options, you can get better quality from both Antaina and Angelic Imprint and Sosic Shop in terms of size consistency and material texture/thickness. I have had shoes from most sweet lolita brands that offer size 43, and CCF is now my last choice for new shoes. The Chinese stores put pop-buckles on theirs, while CCF has a standard buckle. CCF also has a very poor tread on the sole. The material is thin and wrinkles easily. Sure, they're cute, but they won't last you a long time.

After a particularly awful experience at Anime Weekend Atlanta last year I've been workshopping and brainstorming some ideas that could help
enjoy the conventions more and help make the conventions safer for underage minors and younger individuals.

Cons do have activities for children. Also depends on what age range pops into your mind when you say children, I guess. I suppose it’s nice to see the costumes and bond with the parent over - a hobby. I suppose similar reasoning to why people bring their bratty kids to sport games?

yes. the only problem is getting your stuff onboard. air freight is in high demand because container ships are either at a standstill or empty to the point where stuff sits waiting for enough to be brought together for a container ship to be even worth moving. the big boys with money to burn are the ones getting their stuff on the planes. there's also problems getting trucks to/from the docks because of the lockdowns.

if china doesn't restart soon shit's going to be delayed worldwide due to just how interconnected everyone is with china nowadays. even if your stuff is domestically made somewhere down the line is a link with china be it a precursor ingredient or a part. ink, labels, buttons, whatever. a lot of places use china to make some of the small things. lol @ my company using made in USA flag labels that were made in China

Her instagram name is goddess. persephone_. She claims to be a model when she is not even part of a modeling agency/brand. She claims to model for Hot Topic just because she buys from them and takes selfies in their clothes. She is nowhere to be found on their website. If she gets money it’s because she collects social security checks and mooches off her friends or her sugar daddies. Her friends and sugar daddies pays for her convention pass, gives her rides, and pays for her hotel. In other words, she doesn’t even have a real job. No wonder why her baby daddy looks after both her kids most of the week because she doesn’t have a source of money besides unemployment checks. Her unemployment checks are wasted on cosplay and cons so she doesn’t spend money on taking care of her kids. Plus, every pet she owned always died within a few months which is not surprising because she can’t even take care of her human kids. If you’re going to be a model, freaking get professional photos done. Just because you take selfies on your phone for instagram and facebook does NOT mean you’re a model. Also, she rips off buyers by claiming she makes her costumes when really they are secondhanded or she commissioned them off a different seller. She runs a “princess party business” without insurance, without a business license, and uses cheaply made costumes and wigs. She can get a huge fine and be liable without insurance and a business license. If you’re going to portray a Disney character, invest in high quality costumes and wigs and for pete’s sake she needs to take singing lessons because her singing is mediocre at best. She is also racist for portraying Mulan for a party when she is white as paper. Mulan is freaking Chinese! Drawing a cat eye liner does not make you look Chinese...it just makes you look racist. She even claims to be cosfamous when really she is just famous for scamming people, harrassing other cosplayers, mooching off of people, etc.

To add, she always get engaged to a new sugar daddy every year. Her sugar daddy takes her to cons and Disney World because obviously she wastes money on cosplay and can’t afford it herself. She is desperate to get married despite having no source of money besides social security. She is a huge mooch! She is perfectly capable of getting a job and doesn’t really have a disability besides being delusional. On top of that, she is a 30+ year old who acts like a child.

>How long have you been into sweet? Did you start off lolita being into sweet or did you transition from another style?
i'm still a newbie, i've been actually wearing lolita without looking like shit for like 8 months, but i wear mostly ap. i've been admiring the fashion since about 2012 though. i'm still in the process of finding my niche, i'm also interested in jetj-type classic, gothic, and old school, but i started off being into 2010-2014 sweet and hime (don't like hime anymore).
>What got you into sweet?
pics online, mostly from tumblr
>Do you wear any other substyles or J-fashions?
i'd like to wear other substyles (see above) as well as otome and dolly-kei, but i'm still pretty much feeling things out.
>Favorite/Least favorite sweet trend?
favorite: food, chocolate, and carousel prints. i also like silhouette or screen prints (angelic garden, puppet circus, etc). i honestly hate crosses on everything. i also don't really care for the airy fairy dainty chiffon type thing AP's been doing for the past couple years, mostly. i do like airier blouses though. and i know it's a meme but i don't really like poly releases
>Favorite sweet brand?
ap pre-2015
>Do you see yourself ever quitting sweet lolita? Why or why not?
it's too early for me to say, desu
>Is 2010 style OTT sweet coming back?
i HOPE so. i became interested in the fashion just as the trend was dying off, and it makes me so happy looking back on

My wife (pictured) and I go to a bunch of Halloween events in New Orleans every year. Parades, pre-parade luncheons, after-parties, VIP rooms, etc. We get a hotel room with a balcony in a busy area, during the day and night we shadow walking tours to make things interesting for the people, we bar hop in the French Quarter, etc. It’s a big weekend of hardcore Halloween.

We choose a time period in history, build a costume and wear it out in the French Quarter. We always alter my wife’s costume to be on the racy (very racy...) side of things. She has long legs and big breasts, so we try to accentuate those things with heels and short skirts and low cut tops, etc. For example, last year we did a Victorian theme, the year before we did the Roaring 20’s.

So here is the dilemma for this year: We are having the cosplay version of writer’s block.

I posted her pic so you could roughly see how she is built.

Do y’all have any ideas? The ones we keep thinking of can get kind of corny, overdone, cheap or cliché. Like cowboy and Indian, Greek themed togas, 60’s hippies, etc.

Have any ideas?
