like they took the blueprint for this one and then executed it in the cheapest, ugliest possible way. i think the lace looks much nicer on this 2005 OP- it blends in and adds texture.

>> No.10357715

I love this dress so so much, I wish I could justify it

>> No.10357716

Because it’s too subjective and you can’t boot someone without clear criteria. What exactly too high of a price is depends on the buyer and the market and personal opinion. The amazon profiteers were selling brand new items above the MSRP. And they were necessary items during a public emergency. A used dress doesn’t have as clear of a value and is never a necessity. You can choose not to buy a dress but sick people and doctors need medical masks. There’s a huge difference.
Do I agree with scalpers? No. Do they piss me the fuck off? Yes. Do I want to punch soapbox in the face? Yes. But unless they put a hard and fast rule on the number of listings you can have I don’t see a way to make a universally applicable rule by which to define and ban a scalper.

>> No.10357718

>The amazon profiteers were selling brand new items above the MSRP.
Well right there is a rule that can be put into place. Don't sell new release dresses that just came out for $100s more. This is obviously scalping and many "sellers" do this time and time again.

>> No.10357725

the difference there though is that unlike new releases, hand sanitiser isn't a "limited" item - there may be shortages because people are in need of it rn but it's still always going to be produced. with lolita though, once its sold out its gone, so its not really the same

>> No.10357730

It's definitely the same idea. This kind of shit happens with sporting event tickets and stuff (and is technically illegal). I was trying to point out that it's obvious scalping.

I actually really like this and I plan to get it. I am however disappointed with the lace gloves. They look like shit compared to ones they’ve released just. few months ago. I already have a pair of white ones I love, and I’ve been waiting for them to restock so I could get a pair of black, but looking at them next to older pairs, I’m not sure if I want to spend my money on them.

Just allow a certain amount of listings at once, it's not that hard.

>> No.10357735

Sure it’s obvious in a few cases but not in others. In a lot of cases what you see as scalping may be someone just trying to get rid of a collectible item from their collection at market price. Or there may be people scalping stealthily that you don’t recognize, which more than one person on here has admitted doing because it’s pretty easy to do.
Bottom line, it’s easy to recognize *some* scalpers because human brains are good at making inferences from little bits of data but there is no hard and fast rule you can apply to weed them out. None of them violate any particular rule that could be imposed other than price fixing, which is asinine. No one should be made to sell a collectible luxury item for cheap just because it makes people mad they didn’t buy it cheaper first

This sounds like vendetta too. I don't remember seeing/hearing rumors about this being the case, even on 4chan.

Actually, scratch that, my first purchase on Lacemarket was in 2014. Still, I was definitely aware of lolita in late 2012-early 2013 and also definitely lurked egl_comm_sales back then, and Lacemarket when I was a bit newer.
Now I'm curious, what date/year was Lacemarket made? I could have sworn it was 2013, but all search results keep showing me is January-February 2014 or so being the earliest timeframe.

>> No.10357774

An anon six months or maybe a year ago posted a screen shot that is supposedly of Raines’ account showing moderator buttons that this person claims to have obtained by hacking into her lace market account. And the gulls here ate that totally believable story up and now it’s gospel to them. It’s pretty ridiculous. Oh and someone filled a bad feedback against her but it was removed by a moderator so of course she must be one of the mods. Peoples brains just explode that scalpers are allowed to operate on lace market and they think that it must be because there’s a moderator conspiracy rather than, you know, that they don’t give a shit as long as the scalpers conduct fair transactions

nayrt but i'm 27 and my period has been 5 days long for my entire life; my sister's has always been 7. it just depends on the person. having a different than "average" experience in this particular area is not all that atypical since so many things factor in, so i don't think it's fair to discount anyone's experience as false.

everyone should get checked for common deficiencies every now and then if they can afford it, oftentimes really noticeable symptoms won't show until they're very severe.

what's popular in any given comm is likely just regional. that pretty easily accounts for the disparities in what we see. even if 80% of all lolitas wore wigs or vice versa, there could still be a town where it's true that most don't.

I always wear wigs because they give my head a normal shape. If I don’t wear a wig with Lolita, my head looks out of proportion with my coord. But it all depends on your style and of course body-type. I think that plus-sized Lolitas generally look better with the extra volume of a wig.

But as some people said who wears a wig probably differs on the region, but also on how often they wear Lolita. When we have a meet-up most people in my comm wear a wig, but plenty of them also wear Lolita on a daily base and then they use their natural hair. So you will see post from people with their natural hair more often on CoF, as that is what people use the most in daily coord.

>the dead giveaway to a wig is the fucked up shape it gives your head.

Yeah maybe if you're an idiot who doesn't know how to braid your hair under a wig and set it properly.

I find wigs easier to wear because wearing a headbow with my real hair gives me extreme headaches. The wigs help relieve the pressure by distributing it evenly, insead of just having it dig into my temples.

The last thing I'm concerned about when I wear lolita is looking "real" anyway.

This also isn't true. Many Japanese lolitas still wear wigs often, but those are the ones that skew sweeter. Just check out the active AP tags. AP models in fashion shows still wear wigs in fashion shows sometimes.

Right now I would say wig use is 50/50, whereas before it was more 80/20

I'm with this. I used to wear wigs only because my hair didn't suit lolita. But now that it's cut and looks nice, my natural hair looks much better than wigs. I guess lolita specific wigs aren't cut to suit my face. Or maybe I'm just used to seeing my own hair.

About wigs or not. Wigs are more popular among people who don't cut and style their hair for sweet. Some people stick to wigs still, but recently a lot of people have been "lolitafying" their hair. Besides the brand parties, there's a rise in people treating the fashion as a normal fashion.

>> No.10359122

I feel like it's because people are moving away from looking like drag queens. It's the same reason that the old 80s look (bolt-ons tits, small hips, and bottle blonde hair) isn't popular: it makes people think of men in drag. Wigs do the same, especially for uglier women.

>> No.10359139

>Wigs are more popular among people who don't cut and style their hair for sweet.

Or maybe I just like matching my hair to my outfit and changing things up? You all try to psychoanalyze this shit but really its just that wigs are cute and change up an outfit.

Braiding your hair under your wig is a tip for people with long and thick hair. Why would someone with limp hair have a wig lump?

>maybe if you're an idiot who doesn't know how to braid your hair under a wig and set it properly
This is true for most wig-chans in my comm, to be honest. A lot of them also don’t seem to wear wig caps, or don’t pin those down properly either. They wear their wigs like a hat. It doesn’t help that many of them only put their wig on on the train ride to the meet, where they don’t have a mirror.
I invested in one, high quality wig and every time I wear it they think it’s my natural hair because everyone here is so used to wigs looking like crap.

Japanfag here, have a frontload washing machine that can do cold for delicates, 15 degrees celsius for some reason (pretty much useless), 40 degrees (used all the time for non delicates), and 60 degrees (almost never used, would use for something cotton that got really disgusting). Japan also has costco, online shopping etc., it's not hard to be fully stocked up on stain remover and oxi clean. I washed a cashmere and wool coat on the cold delicate cycle in a net because a seagull shat on it (after wiping off all the visible green shit with alcohol wipes), and it came out fine after hanging to dry and a light ironing.

As for washing in almost boiling hot water: that's retarded unless you're dealing with hotel sheets/towels and the laundry of someone with an infectious disease/lice. I grew up in Europe and had a hypochondriac for a mother who washed every single thing on 90 degrees celsius, which ruined everything in next to no time. Not that I had anything in my wardrobe that I valued as a kid, but it was annoying for the elastic in socks and underwear to start coming apart 3 - 4 washes in.

The artist would probably be sad if she saw people illegally uploading her manga so it's probably for the best. She's not a major artist so she probably doesn't earn much from it in the first place.

Why would anyone buy a manga that they wouldn't be able to understand

>> No.10362542

nayrt but the only time i'd do that is if the art is amazing

>> No.10362543

Same, but this manga isn't exactly that tier of artistry.

>> No.10362548


Ironically enough the only time I'd do it is if I already loved the manga so much that I want a physical copy of it. Which means I'd have to have read it in English first, which means illegal uploads. Go figure.

Apparently paradiso is deciding to go on ahead with their plans this year despite Corona virus hitting certain cities very hard and some states going into full lockdown. Thoughts?

Reupload since I forgot to hide someone's name.

Apparently Paradiso is going ahead this year, sounds like they would have to lose out on a lot of money if they don't. Thoughts?

>> No.10362589

I just hope that if there IS a mandated shut down after all, they let us know sooner than later.

>> No.10362654

can't wait for this to be the event that puts lolita fashion back on mainstream news

>> No.10362655

implying some >250 person event in May in Kansas will be a huge outrage

>> No.10362659

Literally everyone will be doing the same thing as soon as government mandates allow for it. People aren't going to sit around hemming and hawing while their business ventures go under. If the hotels and events aren't required to close, Paradiso will definitely not be the only convention happening.

Glad to know even lolitas are just free wheeling capitalists once you get below the sickly sweet faux sjw layer.

My point is, for all the socialist preaching they probably do on social media, they are ultimately potentially put other people at risk in order to not lose money rather than doing the proven right thing.

>> No.10362790

You never know, it might be. I'm in the UK right now and people all over the country are being shamed for much smaller gatherings. We have no idea how bad things will be in the US by May.

>> No.10362794

That's because it's literally illegal to have any gatherings. Don't you people have a stay at home order?

I'm in a lockdown area and no one here is being shamed for anything unless it's illegal. If the government mandates not to do it, that's a different story. But if restrictions are lifted (somehow) by May, no one will care about some small obscure fashion convention occurring in the midwest.

>> No.10362796

I'm just saying, if 20 people at a convention happen to get coronavirus, it doesn't really need to be a mega-event in New York for people to pay attention.

>> No.10362797

Plenty of lolitas are quite the opposite of SJW especially on here so I really don't know where you got this idea to begin with.

>> No.10362805

So if the government allows events in May, you think this one small obscure one in the midwest will be the ONE SINGLE ONE to have an outbreak? Not all the bigger, more notable concerts or conventions that would be occurring in more populous cities? Come on, this makes no sense.

>> No.10362806

I'm saying there's every chance. Bigger events have insurance to fall back on and are less reluctant to do so. It's often small events that drop the ball on this because they have more to lose by cancelling.

>> No.10362807

less reluctant to cancel*, that is.

>> No.10362810

Agree, but that's SJWs online in general. Everything for those online likes and probably not even registered to vote.

>> No.10362811


It's not necessarily evil, the event is slated for May, another month away. I can see the logic behind adopting a wait-and-see stance, if it's still bad the event can still be cancelled (yes, I know, airplane tickets and such, but that's not a lot different from cancelling it now), or things will actually be a lot better and then folks will be glad there's an event to look forward to.

I mean, a month ago everybody was talking shit in the taobao thread about whether or not packages would even make it out of China. You can even check the time-stamped comments. Nobody even expected Italy, out of all countries, would be so badly hit within just a month. In the same timeframe China is now slowly coming out of quarantine and the post is mostly back to normal.

One month from now if the pandemic is still raging hard and they're still holding the event because they'd rather not eat the losses, then it looks bad, yes.
