God the sperging here.
There’s nothing wrong with grabbing a few supplemental pieces from taobao. Just because it’s Not “oldschool” doesn’t mean there aren’t pieces that can work or buffer an oldschool wardrobe.

Original bao anon, I get my peeking bloomers from taobao, and the majority of my shoes. I ordered a blouse from Dolls Party in picrel, havent recieved it yet but liked the ribbon detail

Except it's literally the opposite. Traditional Lolita is the name of a style, and oldschool is a descriptor of it specifying that it's an old style. That's why the people are arguing that only truly old pieces are oldschool are correct. But a piece does not have to be old to be Traditional style.

"Old school" isn't a term used in Japan though. They refer to it as traditional or by the timeframe the piece was released (ie early 2000s era, 90s era.) Old school is a term westerners applied to the look. If you called it that to any Japanese lolita or shop staff, they wouldn't know what you're talking about.

>> No.10632625

Funny how we’re not using the term to talk to Japanese shop staff, we’re using it to talk in western comms, using a term everyone in the western comm understands

Seriously, Japanese lolitas barely use the term “traditional lolita” these days either. Brands and lolitas use 懐古ロリータ (nostalgic lolita) for what we call old school, these days. If we can’t even keep up with or understand Japanese terms, it seems fairly safe to stick with the terms we have that everyone in the western comm already understands.

im not too much of a fan of the JSKs (the OP is alright) but something about the cut of the bustier is so flattering i love it

plus i think the applique is incorporated well in the dress i.e the pearl leash mirrored with the little pearl chain on the bustier. idk! i just it's just so charming in a way i don't see in other sets/dresses like it

sorry if that was a little bit of a ramble but it definitely is in my top 3 DDs of all time lol

unrelated to above but i've been really old school hunting recently and maybe it's just me but i feel like i tend to have good luck with finding affordable OS on wunderwelt waaay more than other secondhand sites?

i mean i've definitely found a decent amount on fril, mercari, CC, etc. but i feel like WW always has the best bang for my buck (at least the kind of OS i like, i'm not sure about other people)

mode girl is one of a small number of dresses AP made around 2006 with a very distinctive illustration style. people who like that style have to hunt for the few dresses that use it, so those dresses often pop up as people's dds, even though they're not actually very popular with the wider AP fanbase. it's just a niche of people that really like this style.

also 90% of what AP puts out looks like children's tshirts designs, that's not really just a mode girl thing

One sold for 90 a few days ago, I'd be willing to pay that personally if turns out cute.

>> No.10640465

A fair price would be usd ~$5-10 (depending on your skill) for every hour you spend making one +materials cost, but if you are looking to gain more substantial income then I think it would be too expensive for anyone to be interested in buying. Personally to buy one from an amateur/intermediate sewer I wouldn’t want to pay more than ~$80. Unless you are like a professional seamstress I wouldn’t consider making your price above what a normal kumya pochette costs used (~$100), because people would be more likely to just buy the brand one instead.

Thanks for your input! That would put me at slightly above $80 given how costly the materials are. I do have a background in making and selling traditional artist bears as my primary source of income, which I feel puts me at a tiny bit of an advantage. Part of me thinks those looking to own the impossible to obtain oldest versions of Usakumya wouldn't substitute it for a brand new one, simply because it won't match this very specific early 2000s look, but I get where you're coming from!

People have been giving you possible reasons and yet you keep trying to imply that she's scalping. Get help anon.

>> No.10642113

>I'm so sad
I'm not sad anon, I'm tired of entitled dumbasses who whine everytime something goes for higher than retail. If I can't afford a dress I just don't buy it instead of trying to accuse people of being scalpers.

>> No.10642116

Hahahahah I guess whiny chan didn't get it then. It's kind of shady to suddenly close the auction without letting people finish bidding though. I wonder how crazy the BIN ended up being that she just closed it like that.

>> No.10642117

anyone know when they may rerelease this

>> No.10642129

What are you talking about they're already accepting preorders now? If you're asking about when they'll send out the orders it's in September

>> No.10642249

Uh, isnt this against LM rules

>> No.10642279

Pretty sure it is

>> No.10642284

That's certainly suspicious...I was about to bid on it so I'm happy someone posted this.

>> No.10642291

what does that even mean? I thought it meant that the highest bidder bid so high that it's above the bin, but some of you are saying it means she sold it somewhere else??

>> No.10642316

there was no BIN price on the dress, it was auction only. So I have no idea wtf the stupid seller is on. Chances are she sold it elsewhere or to a friend or maybe someone messaged her with an offer and she went for it. but imo that is a shit move on the sellers part, especially as she had people bidding on it already.

>> No.10642337

fuck, I literally almost put in a bit then saw this... Looks like it is back to work for me in trying to get my last dream dress. urghhh. was prepared to pay, too.

>> No.10642338

Hope the bidders leave neg feedback on it.

Kinda tempted to place a bid to see how high people were bidding for, so I know what to have on hand in case it shows up again.

>> No.10642346

past recent listings had it for like 400-450 i think, there was one on mercari that was a little less, i think around 33000 yen maybe

>> No.10642414

This pisses me off so bad. Don’t auction if you’re going to kill the auction- I was planning on bidding closer to the end and was going to drop a couple hundred more than what it’s sitting at.

>> No.10642525

no I want to know what that anon's DDs are, so I can look out for them and sell them to her

>> No.10642528

lmao that wasn't even their point, it was buying shit exclusively to resell it which is what actual poor people do

>> No.10642589

RRM update:
The art isn't terrible but the purple colorway looks like a cheap Putumayo replica. I hate print on demand shirts, they're not lolita and don't belong in a coordinate.

>> No.10642597

I wish they'd do prints on actual cutsews rather than t-shirts

>> No.10642598

Picrel, it's one thing to be inspired by their design but directly copying without even mentioning the inspiration is shitty behavior.

>> No.10642612

This one's much prettier, rrm design is... interesting? they decided to just mirror the whole face of the girl. Including the eyes which makes her look weird because they didn't bother to change the eye sparkle
Plus the pupil/iris placement is mirrored and now she looks the opposite of cross eyed

Also it's very obviously made in illustrator, sorry but that's a no go especially when drawing something for lolita

>> No.10642675

This looks so shitty.

>> No.10642679


hideous western art style is hideous. yuck. at least the OG RRM shirts looked cute in a charming amateur way, these just look bad.

>> No.10642733

Kek assuming you can find old Moitie pieces and/or even afford them. Most of my DDs are sorted so you're out of luck there you crazy bitch.

>> No.10642734

Unless the seller has been constantly doing that, buying and selling the same dress twice isn't really a basis to insist on calling them a scalper or flipper.
Anyways the seller threw the auction so she's an idiot, I hope she gets a warning/banned from LM.

>> No.10642877

Why don't they hire a proper artist? I'm sure there's a decent market for lolita print T-shirts, but this crap ain't it.

>> No.10642902

K, I know you check this thread, so please please *please* focus on actual lolita items. Skirts, simple accessories, capes/ capelets etc. I class you as a friend but I know you'd be hurt if I said this to your face, but I really want you to do the best job you can.

>> No.10642904

this doesn't ... look good
I agree with >>10642902

>> No.10642926

I really like the owner of this shop, she is cute and has cute ideas and things, but this printing vagely lolita eque shit on normie t shirts and hoodies (why not actual cutsews???? makes a lot more sense) is horrible. This is the worst thing I have seen. I would prefer they focus on accessories and skirts and gain skill in creating lolita things rather than these ugly things. The art isnt even cute. At least when they did the stuff with the RR Memorandum logo it actually looked like something lolita... this just looks like a lolita at heart's drawing of what she thinks a lolita is before she even knows what lolita is.

>> No.10643056

someone put this in the secondhand market thread but damn

>> No.10643092

I think it's been linked in the past in either an old handmade lolita or oldschool thread, if you check the archive you might find it

>> No.10643208

Alright, gonna look out for them, see ya on LM, hope your not just all talk about those stacks.

>> No.10643292

Kek good luck anon, you'd be fighting with the crazy rich moitie bitches like Tamie too. I better see you out there bidding, put your stacks where your mouth is you dumb cunt.
