As a seamstress/crafter I'm getting really sick of this whole big ASMR meme or whatever.

Lately all I've seen is people posting less tutorials and interesting content for more videos involving them just fondling clay, using fizzy bombs, mixing paint, etc. Projects that actually require planning and skill are being replaced by amateur hour crap made for people with self-diagnosed anxiety disorders. I'm actually really disappointed that I've heard some people are giving up their commission work to try to pan in on the so-called Youtube/Instagram "gold".

I hate this cancerous trend but at the same time I'm beginning to consider selling more of my stuff if this means there's going to be less competition thanks to people making poor business decisions.

Yep, that's some of the things people do. I get that it's supposed to be ~relaxing~ but it often feels really lazy and sometimes uncomfortable if the video is particularly low quality.

Another craft trend I've noticed is people making what I grew up calling an "ocean-in-a-jar" but apparently people are labeling them as "sensory jars" and "diy lava lamps", despite that they're only made of water and oil so there's no "lamp" involved.

It's always funny to me how these people either forget to mention (or don't mention at all) that it's important to make sure everything is well-cleaned and to use distilled water so there's very little concerned of your project getting really nasty from using tap water.

I believe a few months ago there was a /toy/ thread about making water displays like pic related and an anon's had gotten really gross because they used tap water. I wish I could find that thread.

Making you give up your life and your youth by being a whiner is a real shitty thing to do.

No, it's not that. Do you know what the term "comes with baggage" means? It's like a divorced woman with children. It means it'll never be just you and her, it'll be you, and her, and her children, or in this case, your mom.

How do you expect to keep fans or get commissioned for ASMR stuff when it's not as concrete in terms of delivery as commission stuff with crafts or costumes?

I was in a car accident last year, and while I wasn't injured badly my friend was. She eventually recovered, but it left me really shook up. I suffered from panic attacks for months afterwards, and if it happened with my boyfriend around he would give a big hug and whisper "it's alright, you'll make it through this" in my ear repeatedly before just going silent and it helped immensely. So i see the appeal, I just don't see why you would do this over something more enjoyable

I am so uncomfortable with the idea of growing older.
I just want to stay cute,young,doll like (not that I am super doll like but you know...) forever. Wearing pretty frilly ruffly dresses, pretty pastel jackets and accessories,... sometimes even showing my smooth milky skin.
I'll be 20 soon and i feel like i can already see wrinkles and signs of age, everyday i stress more and more about it, and realize that stress gives you wrinkles, causing me to stress while trying not to do so.
Growing old makes me affraid, too much responsabilities, your face and body gets uglier and uglier, your hopes and dreams fade away like being an idol (not that i want to become on, just the first idea that came to my mind),... I feel tears coming to my eyes just thinking about it.
Why even bother to find another girl to share my life? She'll maybe stop loving me one day, or find me too weird,too ugly,... and the thought of suffering and being all alone after being loved just breaks my heart.
I don't think about killing myself after 22 or so even though i jokingly said it once but the thought of getting older and older, not being able to wear my lolita clothes and being as cute,youthful,... as i was when i was 16...

I can only hope i find a true reason to live and something that makes my life worth living. Something. Someone. I don't even have any friends, i'm a lone lolita, barely goes out since i have nothing to do, and i study at home.

I've been trying to revamp my wardrobe and it's a fucking nightmare. Nobody can help me because nobody I know cares about fashion, they all wear the same hand-me-downs even though they can afford new clothes just fine.

I can't wear black or white (I can wear grey and brown however) which just makes things harder, and I'm always scared of looking like literal shit. I also have to be able to pack everything in max 2 suitcases since I'll travel a lot for school. Also a lot of stuff that looks versatile at first ends up being just a wee bit off and makes the whole outfit look like crap. I don't even know if it's possible to build a jfash capsule since it's all so busy. Aaaargh.

One good thing I've found though are those Colour Me Beautiful tests and the personal style identity types. It really helped me find the right stuff for my body type at least.

Going alone could be good though. Try couchsurfing, theres even a whole website for it where people have background checks and everything if youre scared!

Couchsurfing is great because you stay with someone local and teach each other about shit and they normally act like a little tour guide for you too.

I was also bullied pretty violently in school (being 10 and getting diagnosed with depression was pretty bad) Even now I have bad anxiety and I dont go out much if I can help it, but I do love traveling.

Why would your sister expect you to hand over your baby if you got pregnant? That's a very unreasonable thing to be upset over.

As for the rest, you're siblings. Siblings don't always get along even when they love and care for each other. Just because she's made a negative comment doesn't mean that's the only way she feels about you.

You guys are going to have friction because you're different people who didn't choose each other but are forced together. I'd talk to her or your mum about it if it's bothering you so much, but it seems to me you're overthinking things.

I get pissed off whenever I see a perfect cosplay that's set back from the person's height. The fit is great, the build quality is top notch, but the person is just too dang short.

I've seen this problem a lot with Snake cosplayers, as well as Black Butler cosplayers, and it's just a tiny bit cringeworthy seeing 5 foot nothings try and look badass. Like, the least they can do is platform shoes, and it'd do the cosplay a lot more justice, but they refuse. It's also been my experience that these people tend to be rowdier and problematic. The short fellows tend to be a bit creepier overall, especially if they're in cosplay.

Sorry about your brothers not helping, but other anon is right. You only get one life you can't give it all up to your mother. Tell your brothers you need a break & someone needs to check up on her while you are gone, why should you shoulder all the burden? They are taking advantage of your good nature. Book a respite nurse if your mum is in need of one & take off. Make you doing something for you a regular thing. Try to carve out as much of a life for yourself as you can. I think it might be an idea to have your mothers dr put you in touch with someone who deals with in home carers to talk with the whole family and make a fairer situation for you.


As for your mums reluctance to have help-she's just scared by the idea of having a caretaker poking around. Mine were the same. But the caretaker is as much for you as for her... I was run ragged by my grandparents, I gave up my career to mind them after one became housebound and it was clear they weren't coping on their own, no one else bothered to step up i.e their childen... I got treated like alternately a child or a piece of shit for my troubles from their kids & was really broke financially as I wouldnt move in with them and rented (it killed my savings). It was very stressful.
I snapped two years in, reapplied to uni as a mature student & moved away.


I hope you get to have your own life & don't mind the other people in the group you talk with, stuff like saying "why bother if you are going to leave early" doesn't happen once you get a bit older. They've obvs no commitments yet themselves. You will find people who understand. *big hugs*

Just found out today that upper management is snooping around social media profiles. Usually I'd blow info like this off, but I got this info from a good source. Now, I'm pretty decent at hiding my cosplay stuff from the normies I work with, and even better at separating my personal and cosplay lives, but they bleed over sometimes.

If you cosplay something that's:

>flavor of the month
>from a series you've never watched/played
>characters only because they're sexy

MORE THAN ONCE,
you should just quit cosplay. At least don't pretend you LOVEEE the series. Stop being a little fake bitch and get into the series, THEN decide to cosplay a character. Call this a vendetta, whatever, I'm pissed. It's like the 4th time this fucking bitch cosplays from a series she's never cared about. And now she's trying to pretend like she gives a shit about it. I want to call her out, but I'm a pussy bitch so I'll keep my mouth quiet.

And frankly, I'm fine with people cosplaying characters from series they don't care much about, but every cosplay now? And not doing the cosplay because the outfit is intriquite, only for the attention? And don't pretend like you care about the series. Don't pretend you like the series by just reading the character's wiki page. You just want the fucking attention.

/r9k/ is called "Robot 9000", because its original purpose was a general board using the Robot 9000 algorithm developed by Randall Munroe (the XKCD guy). It essentially would temporarily mute you if you posted a comment or image that had ever been posted before, with increasing durations the more duplicates you posted.

It was an experiment at producing a better quality board , and it worked for a bit until two things happened :

1) People found out they could subvert the Robot by adding gibberish to the end of an unoriginal comment or editing a single pixel.

2)Bereft of any actual subject, the board became used for relationship and other advice and discussion.

I don't know if the algorithm is even in effect anymore, but it's since become a sounding board for Poison Men to whine at each other on and fashion a worldview where they are the victims and anything is to blame for their lack of success besides their own lazy nature and repulsive personalities.

Cheaper by thorne. Reason is its more herbs rather than concentrated forms of specific compounds from the herbs so itll work more gently/slowly but will still do the trick.
https://www.amazon.com/Thorne-Research-Supplement-Detoxification-Vegetarian/dp/B000FGWDLS/ref=sr_1_1_a_it?ie=UTF8&qid=1466431150&sr=8-1&keywords=thorne+liver+cleanse

This ones nice because it combines chinese herbs with main western ones like milk thistle. It also has dong gui which is famous for women because it builds the blood (because that time of the month).
https://www.amazon.com/Planetary-Formulations-Bupleurum-Cleanse-tablets/dp/B00012TP3K/ref=sr_1_sc_1_a_it?ie=UTF8&qid=1466431578&sr=8-1-spell&keywords=Burpleurum+liver

Then theres NOW brand, which is like the cheapo brand that makes all kinds of supplements, but the wuality is still way better than the brands walmart and stuff carry. At least amazon has a lot of reviews for it (to be expected though since its most peoples go to brand cause low prices)
https://www.amazon.com/Foods-Liver-Detoxifier-Regenerator-Capsules/dp/B0013OQLGE/ref=sr_1_1_a_it?ie=UTF8&qid=1466431789&sr=8-1&keywords=Now+liver

Because im getting into chinese medicine id say go with the planetary herbals one, but they are all good. One may work better for you than thhe others but you wont know unless you try.

Just make sure you drink a lot of water because when cleaning the liver a lot of toxins will be flushing out so you may get cramping/gas in the beginning

Yeah, that's definitely exaggerated, but there was just a height thread where people were making fun of short and such. Yeah, it's way less pronounced than /r9k/, but it isn't uncommon to see comments of "thirst" or "creep," especially in the suggestion threads where everyone posts their pictures. Hell, in the last AX /cgl/ meetup, we kinda shunned all of the guys, especially with the final meetup after the con (granted, there were a couple creeps) There can be a definite bias against men, considering that most of us are female, but it can't be helped.

I've never seen men being unfairly treated. That only happens if they make typical male comments like "I'd fuck her all you whores are just jealous", "Man here, I'm right and know more than you because I'm a man", "Man here, be my gf", "fucking sluts be my loli gf", "who has the biggest boobs and will show them to me?", "don't wear the things you like because it doesn't make my dick hard", "nudes?", starting obvious fap threads, and posting ridiculously ita lolita and horrible cosplays because "it makes my dick hard so it's way better than everything else".

Men that post cosplays or talk about their own have never gotten that reaction. Men in the lolita threads are almost always creeps unless they j-fash themselves but even then they don't get that reaction unless they say things like the above.

You really are the male version of tumblr. Who else would be saying "man here" and talking about their dick. You also seemed to have conveniently missed "Men that post cosplays or talk about their own have never gotten that reaction."

You're automatically assuming absolutely everybody who posts in those threads that doesn't specify in each one of their posts that they're a male is female. I'm sure there's plenty of men who post and take part in those threads that don't feel the need to specify their gender because some salty cunt like you is going to draw attention to it.

That's not even taking to consideration the men that browse those threads out of curiosity and don't even post anything at all, like >>9062781 and >>9062771

>You really are the male version of tumblr

Nah, I'm just not some stuck up, third-wave feminist moron who hates men because it's the trendy thing to do right now. If you have guys posting in lolita threads talking about their dick, it's a troll or a creep problem. Saying it's 'typical male comments' is horseshit.

Just look at the thread that's up about what characters you'd most like to have sex with in cosplay; it's filled to the brim with thirsty female seagulls who'd otherwise be called creeps if they were male.

In other words if they're actually interested in the fashion as a fashion they don't count. I already excluded brolitas, men who wear aristrocrat/ouji, and men who were planning to.

>That's not even taking to consideration the men that browse those threads out of curiosity and don't even post anything at all

I said " If you don't talk about your dick or beg for a gf/nudes you won't be told to get out." and again as I said above *if they aren't interested in it as a fashion*

>Nah, I'm just not some stuck up, third-wave feminist moron who hates men because it's the trendy thing to do right now.
I don't hate men and I do hate "feminists", I just hate robots just as much.

>Saying it's 'typical male comments' is horseshit.

Meeting irl isn't the same as getting attacked literally every single time any man even hints about his gender. That would be what it's like if it was the female version of r9k. I'd be wary of anyone I met off 4chan too male or female, but obviously even with the same intents men tend to be more dangerous hence people worry about them more. Not because men are evil or they have killer/rapist/creep instincts but because of physical biological differences.

You can look through literally every cosplay thread and see every single man that asked for help or talked about their cosplay was ignored at the absolute worst and is usually just treated normally.

hell, I was invited to one of the afterparties, and I asked if my good friend could come and one if the coordinators said that he gave off a "creepy" vibe and that they didn't want him to come, probably because he looked like a neckbeard, even though he's actually gay and a sweet guy that hardly said a word. it pissed me off so much.

As a guy that actually cosplays, I think that the other anons that you linked have a point really. In the past when I've gone to /cgl/ meet ups, it usually turns out that majority of the guys there are crossborders usually just there to meet girls, which is a topic that usually comes up in conversation. I quite frankly don't care why they're there since it doesn't concern me, but it gets ridiculous when you have 10+ guys there or more dressed in normal clothes who don't even come to /cgl/ or browse normally other than hoping to score. I just want to actually be able to talk with someone about cosplay damn it rather than beat around the bush regarding video game shit or seasonal anime while they wait for actual girls to show up. So by extension, I can definitely see why girls wouldn't be keen on going to meet ups or just letting any dude in on a meet up.

Feeling the same here, I mentioned in some other feels thread being tired of everyone always complaining and being negative. The internet went from my place to escape to becoming why I'm anxious all the time.
Even though I used to do the same years ago, I really dislike the oversharing everyone is doing. People posting everything they have going on medically, including mental health. Or how they were abused/assaulted/heavy shit in general. You'd think at mid 20's they realized that it's not a great idea to post that kind of stuff for all to see.

I used to be like this too, until I got myself a boyfriend where I can go and tell everything to.

I have a similar feel. I've always been told that I'm quite knowledgeable and I excel with classwork and theory, but none of that is helping me right now.

I just started a job two weeks ago and I feel like I'm constantly screwing up. I have never felt dumb or slow in my life until now. The mistakes seem so simple when it's explained but in the moment I'm making them it doesn't. It's really messing me up and hurting my confidence.

I'm just trying to keep it in mind that everyone goes through this. Even the smartest people in the world would have struggled with something, and maybe even felt dumb when they didn't get it first time. The key is perseverance I guess.

Good luck anon. I'm using the fact this job will get me more money to buy brand to pull me through this, find an end goal that motivates you so you don't lose spirit.

You literally said in about six different ways that they are shitty. 500 dollars essentially given as a favor to help her out is a very big deal. You were the one who made her out to be someone who doesn't give a crap about you or giving you a decent commission, as well as ignoring your request for the remaining peices you're suppose to receive. Good friends don't do that. I understand you don't have many friends so maybe that's why you're holding on so tightly but you can't persuade yourself into thinking that they are a great person when the story is from your point of view in the first place, and you clearly painted the picture of a terrible friend who may have taken advantage of you. I said get better friends because a lot of people on cgl are socially awkward which is a product as well as an outcome of our interests, and they tend to find it hard to stick up for themselves or get used by conniving people easily. It's seen in almost every feels thread and it's tiresome. I was the original person who replied to you and I'm very chill, just saw someone who was super stressed about something obvious and may have needed another point of view. No need for the attitude.

You're missing the point entirely. OP is referring to the style of posting where some guy feels the burning need to point out that he's a dude in order to justify whatever he's about to say next - which is usually some variation of horseshit. Guys who are actually into cosplay or lolita don't feel the need to draw attention to the existence of their dicks every other post because they're actually here to, you know, post about the hobby. It's tough to get an accurate sense of gender numbers since the guys being vocal are usually of the obnoxious trolling variety, while the normal ones are flying under the radar.

It's an injection that was originally for diabetics, but it causes you to produce more of a naturally occurring enzyme (I think it's an enzyme and not a hormone) that signals your brain when you're full. So it's an appetite suppressant.

Basically you still get hungry, but you feel full almost as soon as you start eating. Eating a regular-sized meal makes you feel as stuffed as if you had just eaten Thanksgiving dinner. You can feel full on snack-sized portions.

There are serious side effects, but they're super rare.

You'd imagine wrong. A girl being shy has no effect on getting a boyfriend. It's other problems, and she sure as hell isn't interested in some thirsty nobody on 4chan

>Had a problem with a stalker
>He was some Middle-Eastern exchange student at local university
>He said I looked interesting because of my style (I wear larme and some casual j-fasion mostly)
>Said he had "watched me" for months
>Wanted to talk to me even though I said I wasn't interested, followed me around in public transportation (got off of a bus on my stop even though he did not live there), almost followed me to my home
>I never called the cops because I didn't know his name and he never threatened me or touched me. The cops probably wouldn't have done jack shit anyway.
>He said he was leaving in April to go back to his home county
>I got hospitalised and had a surgery around that time, went back to live with my parents in the countryside until I was fully healed
>Returned to my own apartment about a week ago
>Figured the stalker-dude had returned to his home country by now
>Nope
>He's still in town, but luckily I've only seen him in the distance and he has not spotted me


I've only ever gotten compliments from wearing j-fashion, not stalkers.
Luckily I'm moving into a different part of the city soon
