I don't think the clothes are expensive in terms of their value and I gladly fork over thousands for it; I'm just amused because I know It's comparatively expensive for the teenage YT demographic that wear 4$ target shirts and buy knockoff "fashion" from wish. The point was that none of the kids commenting on that video seem to actually know how much actually dressing in this fashion would cost them and what it would entail. Yet they so casually talk about it as if it's a quickie night-out experience for them and their friends.

r/lolita is such a shithole

I honestly think it's a good thing too. I don't understand why some act like it needs to be accessible to everyone, it's a niche fashion and a luxury to many. If it's not in your price bracket or you aren't able to justify/work towards it then just don't wear it. I'm sick of hearing people whining as if they need the instant gratification of a full burando wardrobe right there and then or else they'll be shunned from existence. Wait some time and work towards it or just don't bother.

>> No.10269045

I'm surprised when people say it's expensive, because the price of brand dresses and coats is the same price I pay for work dresses and normie coats. I think people are just used to crappy fast fashion? Any nice, head to toe garment is going to cost a few hundred, but it's also going to last you long enough to pay that back over time, compared to replacing cheap clothing when it wears out after one year.

Yeah, or even the older lolibrary with the flower design. The design wasn't great either, but at least it was good in terms of usability. What bothers me the most about the current lolibrary is that the UI is utter garbage. It's basically only good for small phone screens, but shit for everything else. On my 15' screen, the filter bar is so disproportionate, that if you put in multiple features, the bar becomes so large, it distracts the eyes so much from the small thumbnails, it makes browsing such a pain. It could easily be half the size and it'd be big enough. On the other hand they remove important features such as price or year and product number in the thumbnail - which were incredibly helpful for identifying pieces. Now you have to click through countless pages or wild guess search - which sucks.

You’re not technically wrong, but you didn’t factor in the collecting aspect of lolita fashion. Sure, you can say that lolita lasts longer and it’s good quality so you’re spending your money wisely, but let’s not pretend that Lolitas are thinking that way.

In reality we’re buying 300$ dresses several times a year (for some people several times a month). Let’s just call it what it is: excess.

>> No.10269429

Speak for yourself. I wear my dresses very often and have certainly gotten my moneys worth. Ive had one dress for 5 years and still wear it at least once a month. Not everyone buys niche, specialty items that can only be worn once or twice a year. Some people still treat it like a fashion

>> No.10269432

Same, I wear lolita daily and only buy pieces I know I absolutely will wear often and get my money's worth. I have a blouse that I bought a few years ago that has probably been worn upwards of 50 times, maybe closer to 100. If something gets damaged, I fix it.

Everyone makes mistakes maybe buying a few things they don't 100% love when they first get into the fashion, but after a few years of wearing it I know what works for me. I sold the things that don't. Now every time I buy something I always consider the cuts, colours, what they will match in my wardrobe, how many coordinates I can make with them etc. because I don't want to have an excess of shit I don't use. I also keep a record of the wishlist items I do want.

Some people do collect and maybe those people have a big online presence so you see them more, but I want a wardrobe I use, not a collection of flashy/rare/random pieces that don't get touched. If I wanted that I would collect figures or dolls or something, not clothes which are meant to be worn..

We should probably just come to terms with the fact that Lolibrary is never going to get fixed or be updated. There's already about a year or two's worth of stuff that has been released that isn't documented. Is there anything else we can move to where we can start documenting stuff starting now? At least for the moment Lolibrary is still up so we can still use it for reference for older stuff but the longer we go on just expecting it to get better, the more information is being permanently lost because it's not being uploaded anywhere.

Sorry but I'm gonna current year you, it's fucking 2020, why are we using some outdated fucking website that translates horribly to mobile when we could just be using a wiki that's easier to navigate, doesn't require funds, and everything is stored forever unless we take it down and you don't have to worry about someone dying or devs who don't have enough time on their hands.

This shouldn't be so hard. There's an entire community out there who has info on dresses that people are looking to buy.
Aren't you sick of "what are the measurements"?

>I'm afraid they might completely give up working on lolibrary if another website replaces it
They've essentially already given up on it.
If we just keep on waiting around for them to fix it, we'll continue to do nothing and lose more information. If we start uploading information elsewhere and they completely lose the drive to fix lolibrary then cool, we already started documenting items somewhere else. Dedicated anons might even be willing to go through Lolibrary's listings and painstakingly start adding them into the new database so it'll be complete. If they miraculously do come back and fix it then cool, we'll already have all the missing items documented so we can just copy and paste their details back into Lolibrary and we can go back to using that like we used to.

As far as a wiki goes, how efficient would it be to search for items on there? Can you tag stuff with year, tags, colorways and search for multiple tags at a time?

>> No.10269553

They are still working on it, last time I checked they even made a discord and if I remember correctly some users are still taking track of the current releases, they just can't publish it (yet?).
Wikia has its perks, but in my opinion Lolibrary would still be better if only they would bring it back to its full form. Plus it can always be improved to have more functions too. It would be a shame if they'd drop it after all the work and money that was put into it.

>as a wiki goes, how efficient would it be to search for items on there?
It seems like the search function goes through words of the whole page of every item. I copied the tags and features from Lolibrary and made almost the same sections with them.

>Can you tag stuff with year, tags, colorways and search for multiple tags at a time?
Yes, additionally wikia has a category page that groups tags you want to group together by alphabet. It's quite chaotic though. There's probably a much better way to display and navigate all items with pictures I have yet to learn about.
Here's the usual category page: https://frillogue.fandom.com/wiki/Special:Categories

Np! I'm going to write the How to make an Entry page tomorrow but please beware I'm still a massive noob with the platform and it's more like a simple backup option. The item page edit permissions are set to "block new and unregistered users" for now, though I'm not sure what exactly the criteria for new users is? It might be good to make a wikia account soon if there's some time limit. There are only 3 options: Allow all users, Block new and unregistered users & Administrators and Content Moderators only, so the second one seemed the most reasonable to me.

Hey guys, we have an archive thread here >10254514. Let's move the discussion there.

>> No.10269630


Speaking as someone who does collect.

Either they'll have to sell the dress or run out of space. In the case of selling on the dress it's usually sold at a lower price, so another girl can enjoy it for the next 10 years (or enjoy it for 2, then sell it off again). There's old school dresses circulating that date from pre-2006, that's more than 10 years and the dresses are still holding up. I think there's something to be said about the quality of the dresses being this good, it essentially lowers the price of entry for those girls who can't afford full price brand new releases.

Besides. I wouldn't bother collecting a low quality item if it's going to fall into dust in a few years. That we have enough girls gloating over finding decades-old dream dresses says a whole other thing about the longetivity of the dresses -- it seems the fashion itself is slightly immune to fads and trends (you could always say you're emulating so-and-so style/era, even outdated trends are this easily excused), so the dresses have a longer wearability.

The excess is really what you make of it. The community urges each other to resell dresses, donate, alter, anything rather than throw it in the rubbish bin, so it's not like we're constantly turning resources into trash.

Often they do it to safe space/shipping costs. However the one I am currently using just keeps everything in it’s original packaging. (Like literally each item will be re-inserted in the shipping bag they were placed in and they put all those shipping bags in a parcel box.) Often you can just ask them to keep it or discard it. Like those bigger companies don’t really remove the items just so they can have it themselves, it’s purely to give their clients the lowest shipping fees. (However I have the feeling that some SS save the bonus items for themselves to sometimes sell them later.)

For sure I'll be visting the Angelic Pretty shop in Paris and Vivienne Westwood in London as well as seeing the V&A lolita exhibition, but I was wondering if any of you European gulls could tell me if there are other lolita shops to visit in Europe in any of the countries I'm visiting!

I saw this post and I think I spent an hour trying to type a gentle advice answer but then gave up. The mindset is so far out there I can't even figure it out, let alone relate to it. She can figure out how to spend money on amazon and how to post on reddit, but can't figure out something as simple as lacemarket, and surely she's figured out taobao isn't even the original place to buy lolita from?

Plus the part where she whines about being told her outfit isn't lolita because it's from amazon, I doubt that's really what happened. More likely some girls said her outfit looks cheap and non lolita. Then someone else probably told her "don't buy from amazon". And she's just conflated the two into "other girls looked down on my outfit only because it's from amazon", which means any advice you give her she's gonna conflate into something else again?

Oh, and I'm not even touching that "English websites that are fairly cheap and easy". For a luxury fashion that's foreign in the first place. This is the kind of lazy-ass begging that makes people label younger generation as lazy and wanting handouts.

>> No.10271911


She does seem to point out the misogyny mostly for the purpose of defending trannies and not to actually defend lolitas or women in any way which is a little shitty...sissyism and drag basically directly or indirectly imply that femininity is inherently less than masculinity and therefore either humiliating to take part in or hilarious to laugh at and that's what excites the men who participate...their mutual disdain and disrespect for women to the point that behaving like their twisted representation of a woman is so entertaining.

I really don't get why "cishet" people even like the show. It's super raunchy and not in an enjoyable way, plus just plain unfunny.

>> No.10271927

Drag is misogynistic and gross, but I’m not surprised the general lolita community at large supports it. its tied pretty closely to the lgbt community and heaven forbid anyone criticizes something related to that, even if it’s gross and mocks an entire group of people.

What really drove me to hating drag is the “fish” term they use, it’s a way of saying the performer passes as a bio woman, and the term is a play on a woman’s time of the month because of the sometimes “fishy” smell.

I never got the reference of vaginas to fishiness honestly. Unless I've just had the fortunate experience of never being around really dirty people or something.

This is prolly tmi but on my time of the month the only change in odor is occasionally the smell of iron...you know, cause blood. Not a fishy odor. I feel like only men trying to shit on women ever claim that women smell fishy. A lot of gay men especially.

>> No.10272066

It has nothing to do with being dirty. When a woman gets a bacterial vaginal infection (which can happen no matter how clean you are, since it's internal) her vaginal discharge will have a strong fishy odor.

Thanks for the explanation!

I've never experienced that and don't get close enough to other people down there to notice so it makes sense I haven't ever seen/smelled that before then.

I agree. I hate her preaching about how "inclusive" lolita is.
In terms of body size, races, LGB, etc. Yes Im inclusive.
But men pretending to be lesbians? No. Get out.

My theory is the only reason lolita seems so "inclusive" is because its mainly women. Women are socialized to not cause a stir or to be handmaidens to men.

I've mostly felt regret like >>10272249, over the things I missed out rather than the things I did buy. I'm still feeling regret I didn't get Sweetie Violet in pink, I got it in blue but pink seems harder to find secondhand and I couldn't afford both. Oh well, it'll turn up if it's meant to be.

Though, I skipped Honey Cake and several MTOs -- they just aren't my thing. A lot of the MTOs I got in on are because I wanted them badly but couldn't afford the original. So it's a no-brainer to get in on the MTO and finally own a dress I've always wanted. Those who get in on it due to the hype might have higher chances of regretting their MTO, I suppose.

Because the other items were for sale at a store where any shopping service or scalper could go and order a bunch. The kumyas could only be bought in person at the party in SF (which cost a lot to travel to and buy a ticket for) and people were limited to two a piece so whoever bought them is a real lolita and obviously not in it for the money.

How do you deal with selling small items and accessories that are not worth a ton? Do you sell them in bulk? Do you add them as freebies to your larger sales?

I want to clean out my closet and there are probably around 50 smaller items that I want to get rid off where shipping/packaging and pp fees would would eat up most of the charged price. I'm also not really looking forward to dealing with non-serious buyers and the time involved of creating listings and dealing with the local post office.

I feel like the US has more issues with those kind of things than Europe. Like some people are very annoying on their personal Facebook, as in just having to share their opinion on politics/feminism and such all the time. But, I have never heard about cases where people brought this stuff into the community through the groups nor meetings.

Now to focus on the comms in question. The Belgian community does not have a lot of meet-ups, so they often go to ones in the Netherlands. (Most are members of both groups.) But you are probably used to traveling a lot anyway. As for like sissies and such, the community is very fast in kicking those kind of figures out of the group. I believe both the Dutch and Belgian group screens new members. Beware as we are such meanies, there are some other “Kawaii Fashion” groups on Facebook were all the kinksters and such go to to cry and scream bully. If you really hate men in dresses, I do have to warn you that the Dutch comm has 1 active brolita, who wears Ouji as well, however he doesn’t go to a lot of meet-ups. (He is kind though and genuinly interested in the fashion.)
I do have to warn you that while quite a few members post on cgl, this website is a taboo and you cannot really publicly talk about it. A lot of people are anti-cgl, so most try to keep a low profile and just deny posting here.

Yup. If you are interested in more the GC reddit is pretty good, the only place I go on reddit. You dont have to agree with everything said but I like it.
Also lolcow has a GC thread in /ot/ but its really gone to shit so take it with a grain of salt lmao.

Lolita and feminism are rooted together. So I know some may think its annoying to sperg about such matters. But personally I find them very interconnected. And perhaps not in this thread but I would love to hear more talking points from other lolitas about lolita+feminism in the future.

I'm usually a sucker for teddy bears, but I don't think I can pull off any of the cuts. I'm hoping there's a special set with a lower waistline later on.

The ears headband is nice, though. I bought the bear ears hairclip for Holiday Collection and they were a pain to get even, so it'll be nice to have them on one headband

Tb completely h I don't really like this kind of ears that AP makes. In my opinion they look way cuter when they have two sides of fur as in Milky Holy Bear or when those are padded as in Toy Doll Box. But idk, anyways I'm not big ear wearer. I just feel a bit awkward wearing those when they are not attached to anything like beret.

>> No.10274129

I agree. The deep pink panel on the bodice is shaped weirdly and clashes horribly with the rest of the dress. The rope doesn't work at all, and it doesn't help that it's placed right beside two strips of delicate lace. Even the detachable ribbon looks like it came from a completely different set. And as the cherry on top, babydoll is already hard to pull off. I'm struggling to think of a person who would look good in this dress.

because that's how the real world works, and also how you grow as a person. most people can discuss their opinions without a destructive element. only sports-team-style rabid 'tismos staunchly pick a side and isolate themselves in a digital echo chamber, that occasionally spills into real life.

That anon probably needs to grow as a person. But they won't if they come here to complain instead of being themselves and not hiding who they are so they can wear dresses with people they don't actually like.
