Went with my gf to a meet, this was my coord. Haven't really got any feedback on it though. It was my first completed coord. I've done other since it, It's just my most complete one so I wore it for ILD.
Any critique is welcome!

>> No.8388462

The two things I dislike the most about the coord apart from the lack of red hairpieces (which anon already mentioned) is that the socks don't match the JSK in terms of colour or motif, and the fact that you chose to wear one of the easiest to clock replicas.

Other than that the coord's solid, if not a bit basic.

>> No.8388494

That piercing does nothing to compliment your face. It makes you look like a bull version of PT.

I think a different headpiece would have done the coord better, or a stiffer bonnet.

Not a fan of the tights. What color are the shoes pray tell?
It's just an average coord. Nothing to really pick at.

You look very nice.

Not a huge fan of the socks with this coord but it's decent. Maybe try curling your hair?

I'd rather see average coords than costumey OTT, if that's what you're saying.
Yes I know one can have creative accents on average coords too. However I don't remember average, "matchy" coords ever being a problem for pepole until OTT became more popular and so expectations grew more outlandish for "event" coordinates.

She looks like a bull with that nose piercing. In fact, that's a common opinion about that type of piercing that even normies have. People get called worse shit here all the time, and I brought up modding because it seems people like her (re: you) are not used to having no power on the internet and so you throw tantrums at people whenever you feel even the most slighted.

This is pretty much my first coord and was worn to my first meet! The picture isn't very good but I cba to retake it

I love it but I agree that the shoes need to be changed for new ones
I hope they come in time for the next time you want to wear it so you can do the dress justice!

Yeah that's part of the reason for my suggestion, I have similarly shaped legs (t-rex life). Knee socks look ~ok~ but usually draw attention to the fact that my legs are upside down triangles and OTK never want to stay up or worse, they squish the flesh just above my knee so that my thighs have a muffin top. Tights smooth the legs out, don't usually add any poorly-placed horizontal lines like socks, and I honestly find them cooler, temperature-wise, than bare skin & bloomers, avoiding swamp-ass when it's hot out and you've got half a dozen layers on. I'm self concious about my legs but that doesn't mean you need to be, the socks look fine, as I said, but having a similar body shape, I'd have worn tights.

>> No.8390499

I do like the idea, I just think the execution is poor: the tights and shoes clash terribly with the rest of the look, and your hair is incredibly plain, plus the photos you've posted make it look like you have 0 poof. It just adds up to a combo of "this isn't lolita" and "this is a coord made of nitpick"

The French hood, while lovely, overwhelms the rest of the look, and your head. In lolita I would expect to see it more balanced, either with tights or shoes that complement the gold. The clutter of necklaces also overwhelms in comparison to the plain bottom of the dress.

Both photos show you with little poof, which may be that the dress is heavier than what your 2 petticoats can handle.

Man itaqueen, usually I love your outfits but I have to agree with some of the anons this time.

The tights and shoes look terrible out of place, and the length of the skirt is really awkward. It might look better if we had a picture that wasn't you squished between to people but it just looks weird. Also as another anon said, the imbalance between the large headdress and multiple necklaces and the plain bottom half just adds to the weirdness.

Despite the mermaid waves, it actually curls very easily. I just made separate parts before using my hands to twirl the parts into ringlets before braiding it. (And the curls brush out just as easily, so it's a super versatile wig!)

Totally agree with you. Don't like this coord but could see the idea being taken further/done better in the manner you described.

It's... really not that big of a deal, guys. She just asked for concrit.

Anon, you're in my comm and you're super sweet and I know your ability to coord far exceeds this, but I'm just going to help you out here because I hate getting attacked on CoF. I think some of you other anons are exaggerating a little bit, this isn't HORRID but you've got some issues in the coord, though you started with an overall good idea. I think the big issue is the blouse. Normalfag peasant blouses are frowned upon in lolita, to say the least. They just don't fit the aesthetic at all. Don't be the next Folk-chan. I would switch it out with a cute white, red or pink cutsew. They're really easy to make so unless you're terrified of working with knits I would give it a shot. I think your hairstyle is cute, and I feel it's a little nitpicky to get on about the glasses in a casual coordinate. Like the other person said on CoF, the replica skirt might be an issue as well. For me, I feel like the apron is a little too blaring. It's a really cute idea, but I feel it would work better to redo it in white, as the bright color combined with the unique cut is a little much (though I do love the idea of it being worked into a chocolate coord, would you mind if I tried my hand at a similar style apron in chocolate?) Other than that, some jewelry would be good, at least a necklace and a bracelet. Don't be too discouraged, I would really love to see you give this outfit another shot!

>> No.8395241

That JeJ dress is the ugliest fucking dress I've ever seen. It doesn't flatter you, WannabeWolfHall-chan, if you're still reading the thread. My advice is sell it, or go for THIS silhouette. This is the silhouette you're going for with that dress.

>> No.8395247

u mad?
she looks totally fine

>> No.8395296


Well.... if she seriously wants con crit, here it is:

The biggest problem is the apron. Ditch it, and the coord is instantly 50% better. The blue is a bit too bright and clashes with the pink, which is really difficult on the eyes. The shape of the apron is really narrow and appears to be squishing the pink skirt down.

(I like the concept, but the execution here just doesn't work, especially in that blue with that pink).

The second biggest problem is the blouse. I don't know about the characteristics of a folk blouse, the main issue here is that it's really shapeless, so her entire front looks like it's potatoes. She needs either a better fitted blouse that shows where her boobs are and then comes in to show where her waist is, or a cutsew like anon suggested (which would naturally be tight enough to show her silhoutte).

Everything after the apron and blouse are fixed would just be nitpicks, like not wearing enough jewellery (the neck looks so empty), or the socks being too sheer (the colour is somewhat unbalanced with the block of white for the blouse and the block of pink for the skirt).

Her hair is cute, I really like the little buns.

>> No.8395334

I can't see much of it, but that blouse is unflattering and makes you look like a linebacker. Also it's possible the shoes match better irl but in this particular picture the bluish green looks kind of weird, I see where in the dress you pulled it from but it's not pulled in anywhere else in the outfit. If I'm trying to bring out an accent color I usually shoot for 3 things with that color in the coord, even if it were just a blue-green headbow or something.

I will try a cupcake petti first before taking it apart to add more. But I think that's what I'm gonna have to do. not looking forward to it, but I want this dress to look great.

I just said that the response to my outfit was negative and I'd like concrit as how to improve it, since the most informative response I got before i posted was "lol nice bait". Since 4chan obviously wasn't going to help me out I figured I'd take the issue somewhere else.
I realise the blouse isn't all that great, I'm working on making one in yellow to actually match with the skirt. I just put the outfit together out of what I had to work with, and I'm in serious need of a short sleeve lolita blouse. All the ones I have are long sleeves. And I agree with the chocolate idea, the apron I made is actually reversible with bitter chocolate and pink accents on the reverse side! I think its really cute and although people may not think it goes with this skirt, I'll find something that it looks great with.
Thank you very much, I've got a few necklaces and things on the way but they haven't arrived yet.

Also can y'all stop riding my dick about my glasses? I need them to see so I can't really go without them.

If you don't like a pair you can return and get credit to spend on a different pair so it's not a total waste if they end up looking terrible.

Also I used my optical insurance to get single use contacts a few years ago and since i don't wear contacts very often, a 1-year supply has lasted something like 5 years now.

I think I see what you were going for but this just looks like a mashup of Tumblr Favorites to me.
I'm glad you ditched the Urban Outfitters sweater. I'd also ditch the Urban Outfitters belt.

I'd also... not wear the dot tights with socks (or at all) because I thought you had terrible ingrown hairs on your legs for a few seconds. Cute dress though, is that meta? And I like your wig a lot, where is it from?

The bright purple necklace doesn't go with the dusty rose/purple crown, and the motif seems almost gothic, definitely more flamboyant and geometric than the rest of your outfit.

Pic related is a vintage painted porcelain pendant, I think something like this would be perfect for your outfit and they're not difficult to find for ~$10 . This one was listed at $13 on etsy. I bought one locally for a few bucks less.

Both the wig and dress are Bodyline.
Here's what it looked like after ditching stuff and breaking an antler (because, you know, low hanging branches)...
I agree the pendant you posted looks a lot better. Legit just wanted to wear that necklace haha, no excuse.
Plain sheer tights instead or just no tights?

Is it Wig 050? Because I think I just bought it in a color that doesn't suit me. Do you remember which shade yours is? Did you treat it after receiving it to reduce the shine?

It's a cute necklace, and I agree it's suitable for other coords. It'd even be nice with this dress with other matching accessories.

Sheer tights if you want the coverage/skin correction, otherwise just the socks are fine. You (unlike me) aren't so tall that you need to try to cover up that space, I think.

Yeah it is wig 050! I chose the pink/brown shade 8. I think the one I chose ended up just not being shiny. What color did you get?

Siigh. I got medium brown 4 and it's really warm toned. I look better in ash. I just bought a different"brown" wig that ended up purple so I was worried about doing that again. Your photo just looks cool-ish brown, are there violet fibers mixed in?

nah I'd say they're more baby pink
i'm sorry your wig didn't work out

People think you're a troll because you look fucking ugly as hell. Also you don't need to get disgusting rockabitchy frames. They don't suit your(or anyone's face) and make everyone who wears them look like a frumpy secretary from the 50s with a stick up her ass.

Nothing about this coord is good, it's ill fitted, the melting stuff makes no sense with the print and holy shit that blouse makes your tits look like bags of sand.

Once I found out you were serious I got embarrassed for you and then laughed a lot.

Kek. Anon certainly covered all the bases here

I like it except
- no dot tights
- those socks look like they're straining on your legs and they cut off at a really unflattering point
I think either ankle socks or tights would be better on you

>stop riding my dick
i think you are misusing this idiom, to ride one's dick generally means the rider is trying to get approval/attention from the idiomatic dick-haver.

riding one's ass has the opposite connotation and may be what you meant.

good luck in your english-learning journey
