I'm a recovering shopping addict and want to KonMari my place but I feel incredibly guilty getting rid of expensive lolita dresses that I've only worn once, or sometimes never even worn at all. Marie Kondo recommends just throwing them out. I feel exhausted at the thought of having to sell them all (especially since I have a feeling they'll be taking up space for months while I wait for them to sell), but too guilty to just throw them out. Unsure which path to go down. Anyone have advice?

>> No.10433718

Sell the high value or popular ones that will move quickly, donate the rest. I thought I'd feel guilty too but it felt so freeing to dump them at the thrift shop and not think about them anymore.

>> No.10433723

Do not throw them away.

Wear and enjoy your clothes...

>> No.10433726

to add to this please don't donate to the thrift stores because they encourage people who are new to the fashion and by crazy luck find a piece of brand at a goodwill. You really want people to be buying the full price items, and not loitering at these trashy places hoping to get the rare lolita item, never finding it and then settling for "loliable" items and becoming itas.

>> No.10433729

definitely sell, just thinking of throwing away money like that really confuses me. Like, selling won't take long at all if you put them up for real cheap? Some people will be very happy with scoring a good find, and you will still get some money back from your expensive dresses. Way better than throwing them away and getting nada!

>> No.10433731

Do you have another person who could help you manage the sales? Either a friend or someone who makes a job out of it? I just scored an authentic AatP piece from a what seemed like a high-end brand consignment seller on ebay.

>> No.10433732

This is great in theory, but sometimes things take forever to sell even at a cheap price. Sometimes its not even worth the work to ship them anymore.

>> No.10433734

Sell and list them as auctions starting at $1 + shipping on lacemarket.

>> No.10433735

This. Little to no effort involved, the same kind of work for every single piece, and you're sure to get rid of them in a way that makes someone else happy.

>> No.10433739

basically this

if you manage it right and state a set shipping date or sth you'll also only need one trip to the post office. imo any sale price is better than throwing money in the trash like that.

>> No.10433741


Yeah if you do all auctions ending the same time you will be able to pack them and drop them off at the post office all at once. Maybe do a lil goodbye ritual sort of thing and acknowledge the joy or use they once brought you.

>> No.10433742

Why not just do one or a few photographs of the lot of them and then number them when selling? Or giveaways if winner pays shipping? I think it's a better option so actual lolitas can appreciate them

>> No.10433747

I find selling online exhausting so I have to make a certain amount of money for it to be worth it for me. Some people aren't as lazy though so more power to them.

Someone will probably find them in the thrift store and enjoy them so they aren't really going to waste. Alternatively I would offer them at a swap meet for free, but that's not possible with covid.

This person mentioned feeling exhausted too so I gave a solution.

>> No.10433749

This is a great idea!

>> No.10433750

Anon, they're giving/selling the clothes presumably because they don't enjoy those dresses and don't want to wear them. That's the entire point of the Spark Joy method.

>> No.10433754

Please do this >>10433734
I beg you.

I know it's more effort, but giving someone else happiness is also very freeing and cathartic. And now that you've posted on cgl, you have a ton of people who are probably ready and willing to buy these dresses as soon as they go up.

If you donate to a thrift store, there's a chance the dresses get thrown out immediately if they think they can't be sold, or if they sit in the shop for too long. I think you would get more joy out of doing the $1 auction and seeing the dresses go to people who are in the fashion and can appreciate the clothes like you did.

I had a good friend who also cosplayed but she lives in a different state than me, we both met at a con. When one of us traveled and met up, we hung out quite often even outside of cons, and we frequently texted each other if we're not together. She took cosplay more seriously than me because I didn't care, but in the past 5 years, her popularity shot up. She's started hanging out with more "famous" cosplayers. We barely text each other now.

That really sucks anon. I had something similar happen several years ago. We had this small but tight knit group of cosplay friends. One of them moved to another state for college and while she was there, she became friends with some more popular cosplayers. We had plans to room together at an upcoming con until she bailed on us a week or two beforehand so she could room with her new, more popular friends.

Her new friends were assholes. They stressed her out and ruined cons for her. They put pressure on her to do certain things in certain ways. She bought followers to try and make it seem like she was keeping up with them. They even hopped on the patreon train together. That was all years ago, but I recently got curious and checked up on her and their little clique. All of them except one quit cosplay and one apparently had a massive mental breakdown and did some wild shit

You’re manipulating them in the sense that you’ve set a trap to see if your friends will reach out to you now that you’ve stopped reaching out to them. I totally get that feeling of being tired of being the one who reaches out first, but if you have a pattern of initiating contact, they could just think you’re too busy? Or they don’t care about you and you need new friends. It really depends on how your outreach goes. Are you asking how they’re doing/directing the convo to be all about them? Or is there a genuine give and take to the conversation where you’re able to share things about your life?

I had the misfortune of being in a relationship with a cosplayer as she went from a nobody to a high-profile cosplayer with 250k FB followers, millions of pageviews a year, GoH at cons, etc. Trust me, you don't want it. It destroyed her and our relationship and I'll always feel guilty because it's partly my fault, I introduced her to the characters that made her famous and I took the photos that catapulted her out of obscurity. It took a really cool girl and turned her into a neurotic paranoid angry wreck of a person.

>> No.10434168

Just got notified that my package shipped in April is on its way, nice

>> No.10434173

Yeah, I think it was the massive attention and having to manage it that really did her in. On one hand she had thousands and thousands of random people (mostly men) giving her positive attention, and then she also had tons of hate, so she ended up both very narcissistic and extremely insecure. By the end she was in a new vendetta with some other cosplayer every week, any time somebody else cosplayed one of "her" characters it was a personal insult, as were even more minor things (I remember her going into RAGE mode whenever somebody would say "you're the best ____ I've ever seen" because "ever seen" implies that there might be somebody else out there who's better and they just haven't seen her yet), everything revolved around her shitting on other people, and so on.

The whole thing destroyed me as well, to be honest. She became more and more reclusive outside cons and it was just the two of us living together and I became the target of pretty much all of her frustration and anger. The fact that she had this huge horde of orbiters puffing her up constantly just made it worse, too. By the time we split I was totally broken from several straight years of constant abuse and I've never recovered, it's been years and I still haven't been able to date after the hell I went through with her.

>> No.10434192

>I hope you're doing better and on your way to healing from it.
I think I am, gradually, but not really fast enough. It's been seven years and I'm kind of at the point where I'd accept an opportunity if it fell in my lap but I still can't really do anything to make it happen without crippling anxiety, this'll make me sound pathetic but I kind of think I might have some kind of PTSD from the whole thing.

She also fucked my life over really bad by cheating on me and then slandering me on her public social media after I dumped her, I guess as some kind of attempt to "get ahead of the bad PR." It sort of worked, she successfully managed to turn a lot of casual acquaintances and most of her non-acquaintance followers against me, but people who actually knew us knew she was full of shit (many had actually witnessed her abuse and begged me to leave her in the past) and a few other prominent people spoke out for me, which at least kept me from getting entirely "cancelled," though I was still largely ostracized from my former social circles because being her "friend" was politically advantageous and being mine wasn't.

Heh, nah, but it's funny because she fucking HATED Yaya for being exactly the kind of person she herself eventually turned into.

She was already kind of fucked up, most notably she had a history of "overlapping relationships" (she'd find a new guy and start cheating, and lie to both partners about what was going on until she couldn't hide it anymore) and that would've been a massive red flag had I known it at the time. She was never the monster she turned into later before getting famous, though.

Also, just to add to this as I've thought about it a bit more, there were definitely always issues. The thing is that she was fine 99% of the time and would have a bad outburst maybe once every month or two. What the fame did was make those outbursts something that'd happen on a very regular basis and add in an ever-present layer of anger, resentment, and general meanness that virtually never went away.

>> No.10434218

I've had minor cosmetic surgery comparing it to "substantial", just a chin implant and rhinoplasty/septoplasty. It was extremely worth it and got rid of all my insecurity, I'm 3 years out now and I could not be happier with myself. I have no desire to change anything else.
The only issue I have had is that the very tip of my nose does not appear to be entirely in place on one side, and clicks slightly if moved, though it's only ever been noticeable to me. My surgeon said it's normal, as well as a surgeon I consulted, so keep that in mind if you want a rhinoplasty. Day-to-day I don't notice it and it doesn't bother me.
The advice I'd give you is to find a surgeon you trust, and unless that 30% means a lot to you it will be much easier to find a native doctor you feel comfortable with. They will also be more experienced in providing natural looks that fit your features. Even if you have a vision in mind, trust your surgeon to create a natural-looking face or it'll be obvious and won't age well. Look at their portfolio first. Are they doing the same face on every client, or enhancing their client's other features with what they change?
Recovery is also not bad, per se, but will be worse than you think. It takes a lot out of you physically, something you don't understand entirely until you experience it. You'll feel overall under the weather for a few weeks. Personally, I would not have wanted to fly in that time.
Keep in mind that you'll have to go back to your surgeon for followups around the one month, six months, and one year marks to remove bandages/casts and make sure you're healing properly, so the flights for those may increase your costs.

They say that because COVID supposedly affects Black and Hispanic communities worse. That is partially an income issue more than anything since they tend to be poorer and end up working in lower wage "essential" jobs and exposed more though.

Asians wear masks when sick a ton and both Asians and white people tend to work more high collar jobs that can be done remotely (honestly the irony is that even though a large handful of "muh freedom" people that are overwhelmingly white have been against lockdowns and whining about masks killing them, they don't care about all the people of all races including white that COVID has already killed as a result of their lack of caution and reckless behavior)

I don't think that's true, at least not by the strict definition of "demisexual." Being demi doesn't mean you only have sex with people you're in relationships with, it means you're not even *attracted* to anybody except serious romantic partners, and I don't think that's true for the majority of people, whether they do hookups or not. As somebody who's "semi-demi" I certainly seem to be the outlier among the majority of people I know and they're usually pretty flabbergasted about the way I am, and I'm not even full on demi.

>> No.10434299

You're not alone. I think everyone should be treated with basic human respect.

That said, I also don't think it's ok to shit on an entire group of people because a select section of that group did you wrong. I have a unique outlook though. I'm not black but went to a majority black middle and high school. A few teachers actively targeted me for not being black (failing grades on good papers, seating me in the back facing the wall away from everyone, ignoring kids stealing from my bags). Yet in some classes I excelled with straight A's so it wasn't an academic performance problem. They absolutely used their positions of authority to discriminate so it irks me when people act like it isn't possible. Despite these experiences, I don't judge the entire population of black people by those individual's actions. Yet the opposite is not only accepted but celebrated lately. If I say anything about what happened to me in school I get told my feelings don't matter.

I quit social media. I only interact with people who treat me as an individual and don't judge me by someone else's sins. I do the same. It's done wonders for my mental health. I don't care if people think silence is violence. The people who were loudest about BLM were quiet about Vanessa Guillen (Hispanic woman who was murdered) so they can all kiss my ass.

Wow, I was going through the exact same thing. Have you discussed it with him at all? I was mostly worried about my bf being one of those people who think lolita=Lolita book=pedo/ddlg, but I lucked out with a Nabokov-scholar bf who was surprised and annoyed to find out people make that connection at all. He reluctantly admitted he's uncomfortable with the cutesy OTT sweet look, but otherwise thinks lolita as a concept is very "punk."

I'm rambling but just sharing this because you might be surprised what you learn if you discuss it with him! Especially if you describe it as a rebellious self-expression thing (even if it isn't for you)

>> No.10434406

I approached it with my bf by sending him some photos of dresses and being like "wow these are so cute" and then he replied "you'd look so good in those! how much are they?"

He was more concerned about the prices of them rather than the "weirdness" of them, but after he saw how much it meant to me and how much I liked them he even offered to pitch in to buying.

Why don't you wear them? Has the opportunity just not come up? Is there about the way they look on you that you don't like or they don't suit you as much as the dresses you do wear?

If its the first one then hold on to them for a bit - if you don't think about them in say, a few months, then think about selling. If its the second, then sell. You'll always prefer your other dresses over them. You can use the money for other dresses you like more or accessories to wear with the dresses you like best.

I’m honestly very lazy when it comes to dressing for work, but people seem to think that putting on a dress and tights is more work than putting on a shirt and jeans or leggings. I probably spend as much time getting ready as any guy who shaves every day, and most of my dresses are way less flashy than some of the graphic t-shirts other people wear.

There’s also this weird idea that the more time and attention you put into getting ready in the morning, the less time and attention you have for your work. But in my experience, the people who literally just roll out of bed and come into work tend to be the ones who are late, leave early and have no attention for detail.

There are a lot of men in my local cosplay community who get outed right now. One of them who I just barely know apparently molested and harassed a girl when she was 13. It's easy to click unfriend on Facebook, but it's not easy to unthink it.

I was one of those young girls, getting touched in ill advised ways, in situations where we can't say no. I've been thinking of the guy who did it to me. He ought to be nearly thirty now. Part of me really wants to connect with him and talk about it. I don't want to out him. I just want to understand. I want to hear the story he has been telling himself about what happened.

I won't do it though. All my friends advice against it, and there's ultimately no point to it. Curiosity alone isn't enough to hunt down a man eight years later and ask if it meant as much to him as it did to me. He might have already killed himself for all I know.

This. I grew up in a neighbourhood full of full-time criminals. All of them were healthy and fit enough to work but they didn't like how little it paid and refused to become educated in a trade or university because they didn't want to go into debt because they were all financially illiterate to the idea of return on investment. It was quick and easy money to break into someone's house or break into a car, grab what you can carry and bolt. If you got lucky, that's $3-4K worth of stuff, if you weren't lucky, a few hundred.

But they always went out and bought nouveau-riche garbage. Jewelry, iPhones, expensive TVs, designer clothes. Nothing that ever improved their situation or even attempt to better their life to not have to be a full-time criminal.

These people are extremely short sighted and act like crabs in a bucket. If one person stashed their money away to save up for trade-school and didn't buy tacky shit, they would be actively mocked for being poor.

>> No.10435581

Weightloss is purely a diet thing. No amount of running or picking heavy things up and putting them back down will overcome 20,000 calories of McDonald's.

Step to lose weight:

1. Calculate your TDEE (google it)
2. Aim to eat 250-500 calories below your TDEE
3. Record your diet in MyFitnessPal to make sure you don't go over (DO NOT LIE TO YOURSELF)
4. Weigh yourself on scales once a week, no more no less and record your weight.
5. When weightloss begins to slow, reduce your caloric intake by 100 calories incrementally until it starts again

If you want to lose actually fat and not just weight, you'll need a ketogenic diet but that requires a lot of will power if you don't know what to expect. Do the steps above and you'll be golden.

I keep trying to explain this stuff to an overweight friend of mine. They’ll do some really low impact exercise for 15-30 minutes and then get so proud of themselves for exercising that they reward themselves with a treat that’s way more calories than they burned. And frequently they eat things that would be totally fine if they would just eat a reasonable amount, but they always eat several times the serving size. I’m tired of having to listen to them lie to themselves about wanting to get healthy and lose weight. I’ve tried so many times to explain basic shit like calories and at this point it’s obvious that they’re choosing to be ignorant on purpose.

I used to be on the low end of obese, so I'll provide my personal experience here. First, sugar and fat can literally be addictive, and the cravings you get when you try to cut back will make you feel like you haven't eaten enough. Additionally, once you're sufficiently overweight, a "normal" amount of food will still leave you hungry afterward. There's also what >>10435647 said about calorie dense foods, which is an especially insidious problem here in burgerland where there's HFCS hidden in every food product you can think of. All of this can lead to a 100% earnest impression that you're eating at a calorie deficit even when you're not. I only got myself down to a healthy weight when I started cooking 90% of my meals entirely from scratch, and even then there was a lot of psychological baggage I had to deal with to get to where I am now.

As somebody who IS currently pretty close to the obese line (medically speaking at least, 5'10" 220 so not what the average person thinks of as "obese"), a big part of the problem is also the people around you who you have to share meals with. Most fat people come from fat families or have fat partners and if they're not as motivated as you are it's hard to get them to eat diet-friendly food. I was making good progress before corona hit, lost like 8lbs in the month prior and had been eating well, and then this whole thing made me move back in with my dad and brother and I've gained like 15lbs back because it's just so damn hard to eat the right food even if I'm careful with portion control and stuff.

So you're admitting you only watched mainstream media or /pol/'s coverage? Good to know. I'll help your maggot infested brain do some thinking. What places were protesters breaking into? Target, Walmart, CVS, Walgreens.. Places known to sell FOOD and MEDICINE. Do you know the average price of insulin (diabetes disproportionately affects the Black community)? Couple hundred dollars for something many people need once a day, if not more if they want to eat good. "b-b-but they were looting autozone too!" You need a working car to get to work. You need a working car to drive your children to school and doctors appointments. You need a working car to drive to meetings you need to go to. Maybe if we focused less on promoting the status symbol of the car and looked into making public transport such as buses and trains work, then maybe people wouldn't have to steal engine oil or spark plugs to, again, SURVIVE. Yes, of course some were stealing tvs, no one is denying this, but that's such a small minority of the people who were really out there just grabbing what they need and can't afford. You know who was arrested for looting vanities? Jake Paul. Does't look too black to me does he? So yeah, keep trying to debate me dude, you're outmatched by a fucking mile. I'd so be down to debate you live but I know cowards like you don't show their faces online because you know the second you step out the house you'll have some of the boys in black stomping your smug little face into the pavement.

For the excerise part they are thinking of it backwards. I try to let others know (that ask of course) that you shouldn't reward yourself with food.

What she should be thinking is " okay, I ate 500cal, what would I have to do to burn that off? "

The best way you can prove it to em or get it through their head (if you want to) is to be an example. If you're trying to lose weight as well, you will be proof to her of what works. If you're already at a weight you're fine with then I got nothing on that front.
