My mother (somehow!!) came across this video while searching for lolita stuff, and now she's convinced that this is what lolita is all about. Jesus, she's never going to respect my hobby again.

ask her if she seems ANY similarities between what this attentionwhore is wearing, and what your dresses look like. unless she's completely dense she'll be able to spot the difference.

man, i understand parents wanting what's best for their kids, but i always get triggered when i hear about how other lolitas' folks get so up in arms about it. i got so lucky. i laugh when i see babyboomer comments on lolita articles and stuff. do they choose to be that blind?

>> No.9236928

My parents have been fairly good about the whole lolita thing. I don't think they get it or like it but they don't really care much about it.

Muscle training will not make you buff I promise you. Unless you are trying you are not going to have noticeable muscle. Doing muscle training is a great way to burn fat though for some people. Keep at it and don't change up your entire routine for one cosplay that you don't even feel confident in anyway,

Yeah I get where you're attempting to come from, but I've been sticking to a pretty serious regime of intentional muscle building and I've gotten broader shoulders and bulkier quads and well as the other usual bullshit. When you put in work you're going to actually get muscle, as I've been doing, and not just fat loss.
What I'm saying is I don't know if I want to continue this and get even stronger or just be dainty and skinny.

But how the hell would your mother even associate this with lolita? Like even if she found it by searching for lolita, I couldn't see how she would make the connection between the two. It's like, if I searched for "Cheetah" and it showed me pictures of The Spice Girls I on google search just because of some weird SEO tags I wouldn't associate the two.

Has she actually talked to you about it?

>> No.9237082

yeah, my closet is mostly cutesy prints and this is really decadent looking

MCD a cute especially in the pink and offwhite colorways. i really like the one piece but i wasn't prepared to buy it

i think that sax is an unnatural color for desserts prints. there's none of that color featured in the desserts themselves so it looks off. yet the mint triggers me less for some reason

one day, MCD

>> No.9237084 [DELETED] 

I really like mint when it comes to dessert prints but I have terrible taste

sax tho

it looks really bad

pink is my personal fave for MCD

I think the cut on the OP is cute but I don't exactly understand why it's the most popular

people say the normal waist JSK is plain but it's such a busy print so I think a more toned down cut is okay isn't it?


I'm happy with my two new JSKs for it

favorite motifs are sweets n space

favorite print ever is dreamy planetarium because I am fucking garbage and a whore for anything space related

my absolute least favorite is Cats Tea Party

I just hate it so much it's not even rational

>> No.9237093

mint is just a really cute color in general i think. i'd take it over regular green or sax anytime.

>tfw no mint in my wardrobe

i'm just a sucker for OPs with that kind of high waisted cut and bodice detail. it's really sweet. but most people look shit in empire cuts so i'm also like??? why are people doing that to themselves

the more plain cut JSK is cute, and so is the one with the round collar. sack dresses are just so cute

Gothic, lolita or otherwise, looks great on baby faces. I mean, I don't think I could see that rocking some cyber goth fashion...

But I think you'd suit gothic lolita. I think lolita as a whole looks best with softer faces, even the gothic lolita styles (which I do live vicariously through pictures and decor).

It's why I don't wear it.

idk ive always thought people who are "beautiful" as opposed to "adorable" suit gothic more

I like oddities and just spoopy stuff in general but I get discouraged when i think about wearing it

Then I grew up.
Haven't been into a game/anime/... like that ever since.

Its not really a story or anything, but more like a question.

See, Im trying to pen this character for a fic of mine who is
>blunt, almost never sugarcoat things she had in her mind to people
>spat opiniated "truth" at people to belittle them for fun
>almost no self awareness that she is being rude
>a freak, but keep it lowkey
>can held herself in a debate, but talk back to her long enough using an equally rude tone and she'll cry

The thing is, I want to make her casual get up to be described as "cute" ,like somekind of denomination of Jfash / lolita or something, but I dont know almost any thing about the stereotype or ascociation of personality that wears a specific style. Can you point out what clothes a person like this would wear? I am giving her this clothing selection to her just for some comical effect, just to point out further her self unawareness about her surrounding.

That's rough. I'm sorry, anon.

There used to be these two massively overweight girls in my comm. They weren't even lolitas. They just showed up to our teas in kigurumi.

Last month, they drowned in a lake. I feel terrible, because we used to ridicule them all the time. We called them our comm's "balls" because there were two of them, they were big and round, and they were always in a sack.

At least your crush probably left you with lots of fond memories. When I think of these poor girls, I just feel like a raging cunt.

>> No.9237662

Also don't feel bad. You were a bit harsh but it's not like you should've welcomed them with open arms into your comm when they dressed like that. I mean, everyone is going to die someday so there's no point to going "I should've tolerated them because they're going to die."

Today I was sunbathing on my bed and noticed I have spider veins all down the back of both calves and beginning to go to my upper thighs, and my cellulite is getting out of control, too.

Lol exercise gets rid of spider veins now thanks for the advice

>> No.9237862

I see where you are coming from and I agree that a lot of people do overcome that and it becomes a very enjoyable hobby. The point I'm really trying to make is that the idea is something interesting but the actual going out and doing of the activity isn't any fun for me. I have had no positive experiences in cosplay only negative. Maybe if there was some fun community or good moments things would be different And I wouldn't feel that way about putting on a costume and pretending to be someone far more social than I am. But why would anyone do anything they don't enjoy for extended periods of time.
I want to enjoy the hobby and the initial creation of a costume or prop building is exciting but it always devolves to failure eventually. What do other people do to get over that hump?
And no I'm really not interested in your "just do it" advice because if that was the answer it would have fucking happened already.

It won't get rid of those but your cellulite is literally just fat and that can be easily eroded by dietary change and exercise. I mean it's your life you choose to do what you will with it but there are solutions to at least some of your problems if you just have the motivation to do something about it.

>> No.9237880

Well what advice do you want other than "just do it"? Wish upon a star? Sit on your ass until suddenly things are positive? Life doesn't work that way.

If you're not enjoying it; stop doing it. Find a different hobby. If you want to enjoy it; keep going until you meet people who make it enjoyable. There are literally no other options.

If you want more tailored advise you're going to need to be less vague about what your issue is. All you've really said so far is that you have "negative experiences" and people aren't especially friendly when you approach them, that's not a lot to go on. How are you approaching them? What kind of people are you approaching? What exactly do they say when you approach them? Is it possible you're taking a neutral reaction as a negative one when it's not? What are these negative experiences you've had? Give a bloody example, we aren't mind readers and can't give specific advise on a situation where we don't know the specifics.

Do what you like, don't try to force yourself into ouji just because you look masculine. If you want to be cute and ouji doesn't make you feel cute, don't wear ouji.

>> No.9237902

Not entirely true. Skinny women can get cellulite (and fat women can not have cellulite) because the bumpy appearance is more to do with the collagen and elastin being too weak to hold the fat in place in a non-lumpy way than it is to do with the amount of fat on your body. Being obese will make it more obvious, but even if you're skinny you won't have literally no subcutaneous fat on your body and it can still show up. I freaked the fuck out when I got cellulite while underweight because most of the advice I saw online that wasn't trying to shill snake oil pills assumed cellulite = obesity and suggested losing weight as a solution (exercising did nothing for me). Finding out it's a genetic curse you can't do much about is part-reassuring, part massive downer.

Working out can actually improve cellulite by ridding the body of adipose tissue; this usually only works in people who developed adipose tissue by gaining muscle mass and then losing it.

However we also gain adipose tissue as a secondary sex characteristic. The skin also weakens and thins as we get older, worsening the appearance. There's not much that can be done for such cellulite.

Staying hydrated will help more then anything because swelling and bloating make it worse.

>> No.9238104

And remember that cellulite is when the connective tissue in your skin that normally holds everything in nice and tight breaks down and loosens.

So... vitamins and minerals for your skin will help from the inside out.

>> No.9238107

And really weird... but apparently tight fitting underwear and clothing can actually contribute to cellulite by constricting blood circulation to the skin, worsening the appearance and speeding the progression. Apparently thongs and loose fitting clothes are preferable. (or just drink water).

Yes and no. You would have to combine it with a lower body fat percentage as well so that the muscle there is giving shape to the overlying fat and making any cellulite present less obvious. But the thing is because it's a connective tissue structure issue you can't rid yourself of it entirely once it's there unless your body decides to just randomly do it.

That's what I really wanted from meets so I think I'm just gonna go back to being a lonelita. I went to several meets and had lovely conversations, none of which were really about the fashion itself. Whatevs. They are fun parties at least.

I'm not like crazy social either. So maybe that's part of it? I mean I talked to people but I don't actually like talking to people.

i've read a lot of gulls saying similar things--about how lolitas in their comms didn't even really want to talk about lolita. more like a social gathering to talk about the weather while wearing pretty clothes. i'm afraid i might not fit in because i'm always excited to talk about new releases and stuff, but from what i've seen it seems that a significant amount of people just don't care.

nothing bad about (good) handmade lolitas and people who primarily buy offbrand but i'd expect them to care at least a little about what's going on with the fashion.

I would use the police to help keep me safe, but I don't trust the police in the part of town I live in. When I was a child my father was beating the living shit out of my mother and the police didn't do any thing about it. Their reasoning is that no one saw it because I locked myself in the bedroom closet and didn't witness it with my own eyes. So it was a he said she said stance and they sided with the man of the house. So I have a hard time trusting the police in this area. That's why I'm going to my mothers up north since the police don't take lightly to domestic violence. She will also help me with all the paper work and legal stuff to get an order of protection on him.

I'm a depressed NEET and I have zero reason to leave the house anymore. I've been trying to get help for over a month now but bureaucracy is hell, my first appointment with some kind of psychologist is next week. I really, really want to have a reason to go outside again. Doing stuff is supposed to help depression, autumn is my favourite season and most of all I want to dress up and wear my frills again.

I don't really have friends/people near me to do things with. Can you recommend any activities that would be fun to do on my own and get dressed up for? I don't want to lie in bed all day anymore.

I dropped out of college last year and stayed home for almost an entire year before getting back to school.

It depends a lot on what you like to do but here are some ideas: Go to the library and pick up a book you want to read and find someplace nice to read it, like a nice park for example; spoil yourself with tea and a cute dessert at a tea house; take yourself out to a movie or a play; or go hunting for loliables (blouses, cardigans, socks, accessories, you never know what you might find), familiar stores like Forever21 or H&M are nice but consider looking for interesting finds in thrift/vintage/antique stores as well.

>> No.9238418


>> No.9238419

I don't think I had depression, at least not diagnosed, and the only reason I'm somewhat out of it is because I hated being at home all day so much I just went back to school. Not a perfect solution since I'm not doing something I enjoy I just went with whatever that would force me to go outside.

So take my advice with a grain of salt; first of all talking to a psychologist and how much it helps depends on how you're going about it and how good you get along with said psychologist.
So it's important to go there with some sort of idea what you want to talk about, there's no reason for it to help if you're planning on hiding stuff and not telling how you really feel. I say this out of experience, you're just digging your own grave.
Secondly try finding something that might give you a sense of purpose, which is why volunteerwork might be a good idea. It's not going to magically solve your depression, but having a reason to go outside and socialize is already a million times better then sitting at home all day. And it also helps that you'll be able to help others, giving you a sense of being needed and usefull.

Sorry it's a bit ramble-y, but I tried!

>> No.9238423

Thanks anon! I live in hicksville so there's not many nice places but these ideas will definitely help.

Yeah, going to school just to do something is what I tried this year but I ended up immediately dropping out, at least it saves me money.

Yeah, I'm planning on making the most of it, I'm mostly just skeptical because I don't believe in people. In fact, I really, really hate people. Which is also why most of the volunteerwork I've found isn't really suitable, as it's all about being social and interacting with others, which I'm just bad at. I suppose I'll keep looking.

>> No.9238424

I see, well then it'll be important to discuss with your psychologist how you can learn to get along better with people. Even if you don't really want to, it's going to be better then your situation right now.

It's important in this case that you want to change, if you hate people and have no desire to stop hating people, you're probably not going to get much out of any help.

This is because girls who are new aren't knowledgeable enough to hold any interesting discussions, and girls that are experienced in the fashion have other outlets to discuss lolita. I felt like this in comms I was in until I realised the reason lolita topics rarely got brought up at meets was because most girls had already discussed them to death on /cgl/ or with lolita friends via PM and had nothing new to say. Plus some topics in the community are kind of controversial or rude to discuss (ex. saying that you think a certain style of dress always looks hideous when someone at the meet is wearing it, or that you hate a certain style, or that you don't like brolitas at meets, anything to do wiht replicas) so people avoid these topics in the comm and only bring them up among private gatherings of friends.

Volunteering really helped me when I was a shut-in with appalling social skills. A good place will help you grow and appreciate you for the skills you have, and, as a bonus, you'll get to feel better about yourself because you'll be exposed to lots of people who are even more unemployable than you. Guessing you're not in the UK because you somehow got an appointment with a psychologist in only a month, but everything I've ever volunteered at here has had a mixture of sweet old biddies that bring cake, young teens looking for extracurriculars, and barely-functioning alcoholics, ex-addicts and people with serious mental health problems or disabilities. The management will be used to working around people's issues and finding tasks kids with no life experience can do, and there are bound to be people there who are bigger fuck-ups than you.

I'd also say not to just try one place and then give up. I have had great volunteering experiences but I've also had bad managers and bitchy co-workers just like in any job, so it's worth trying a few different places to see where you feel comfortable.

>In fact, I really, really hate people. Which is also why most of the volunteerwork I've found isn't really suitable, as it's all about being social and interacting with others, which I'm just bad at.
Most charity shops will allow you to work in the back room sorting and pricing stuff, where you won't have to interact with people and will get first pick of donated goods. Tree planting and maintenance work at nature reserves is done in a group but you won't have to talk or work close to people. You can also do stuff that'd make you feel useful without going through a specific volunteer organisation, for example going on nature walks and recording what you see so you can log sightings of certain species for citizen science projects, or even going and taking photos for a shitty aesthetic blog or insta account.

>> No.9238904

Also, pick a placement somewhere you like to go to incentivize you going, if necessary. For example, if you like the anonymity of being somewhere where people don't know you and your local thrift store is full of trash, see if it's possible to travel from hicksville to the nearest big city (or a richer or more touristy town with a better calibre of donations) and volunteer there instead.

What >>9238424 said is important, but remember that even if your social skills don't actively improve from volunteering, it should at least stop them deteriorating from lack of practice.

The moment someone shows they're controlling like this, you should know that they aren't someone you should spend your life with.

Are you at least considering opening a restraining order? They're pretty ridiculously easy to get in several states. My worry is that someone with controlling, self-entitled tendencies like that is bound to try and follow you after the divorce.

Other people's feelings shouldn't be a reason to burden yourself.

You're right, but I was on the waiting list for treatment for years in high school and I'm just not sure if I have the energy to re-engage with the whole bureaucratic process of it. Where I live the services are so overstretched that you aren't considered high-priority enough to deal with in less than a year unless you're actively trying to kill youself (legit, I knew someone who was failing school, referred to mental health services multiple times over the course of a year for daily self-harm, and they weren't considered a high priority enough case to even see a counsellor until they were hospitalised for a failed suicide attempt). For a comparatively mild case of anxiety and depression like me where the main issue is that I'm afraid of relapsing and want intervention in case I get worse, there's no chance. I think I can get beta blockers from a GP as an adult without having to wait to see a psychiatrist though, and I'm definitely going to try to get what I can from university services. The problem is that with extreme mood swings I can see someone while I'm okay and they'd think I was a time waster with nothing wrong with them, and it's hard to express and quantify to what extent and how often I'm down. Maybe I should try to fill in a mood tracker as some sort of proof before even approaching the health service.

I got a lot better when I moved out so I thought most of the issues were caused by a bad family situation, but it's coming back with a vengeance now so it's obvious the change of circumstance wasn't enough. As for lolita, I'm less worried about it now as I've been browsing inspo threads and still like it a bit, I'm just not feeling deep emotions.

Does masturbation count? I'm probably not in a good state for a relationship right now.

The NHS, everybody. Great if you have a physical problem, absolutely appalling for mental health. I'm not sure what it's like for adults in the area I live in now, but children's services (under-18s) are a shambles country-wide because the law has all these safeguards in place to stop GPs handing out drugs to kids willy-nilly, but the service is too underfunded to pay to implement them properly. So under-18s aren't allowed to get or change a prescription for antidepressants without seeing a psychiatrist, but some areas have a massive shortage of psychiatrists (it's an absolute joke, the area my parents lived in literally had one child psychiatrist in an area of ~200,000 people), so teenagers have to wait ages to get access to treatment. Similarly, high-severity cases require more thorough treatment, but that sometimes means that if you case is considered a severe one, you'll actually be on a longer waiting list than being in a lower band because the service doesn't employ enough people considered qualified to treat all the high-priority cases.

It is however really hard to get sectioned. I tried when I was suicidal. The bed shortage was so bad that they told me I was fine and should go back to work (plan involved poisonous chemicals found there). Now I'm glad I didn't get admitted because even for inpatients access to treatment is bad and I know I would have been put into high dose drugs rather than getting more suitable help.

Instead I paid for my own counselling. Really messed me up financially for a while even just to pay for 10 sessions- £50 each and I had to stop going when my savings ran out, but I did make enough progress to stay safe.

My taste in lolita has changed over the years, but I've also had phases where my love for different styles and motifs decreased without fully going away, so I never know when it's really time to sell and when it's just a phase and I'll get back into the style later. Usually I deal with it by just buying stuff to fit my new taste and not selling older stuff until I've not worn it for months, but right now it's either sell old stuff to fund new stuff or not have new stuff at all.

I never said it doesn't burn fat. I said "Nope" to the idea that it's a great way to burn fat. Adding on more muscle does cause your body to burn more energy, since you muscles require more energy to maintain. However, the energy required burned building muscle (through anaerobic exercise) isn't that great. You're better off doing cardio (aerobic exercise).

However, cardio should be looked at as a fat burning additon, and not your main method of burning fat. Your best way to lose it is to eat less, and change what you eat so that you eat more protein.
