>> No.9478484

I'm a fatty-chan working on getting in shape but sometimes I can't help but wish I had a lolita fitness buddy. I talk to people here and there and I do have friends on myfitnesspal but idk, I feel like it would be nice to have a fellow fattychan getting in shape with me. We could keep each other motivated and share our dream dresses. Maybe even offer support in difficult weight-loss situations like tea parties etc.
Anyways back to sweating the fat off.

I'm thinking I should save my money and only buy one piece a month but I have a long list of things I want... Maybe I can buy things for her too but at the same time I have to save for my education/haircuts

Also it's not that we're poor, she makes 3k every 2 weeks but we have a lot of shit to pay and she is very bad at managing money

Got a side job atm too because money is tight, and I'm also dealing with a lot of paperwork because of an issue with uni.
I agreed to help a friend with a job application last night but ended up being too busy. I felt really guilty because I know she's super skint atm and family driving her nuts at home.
Then I see on fb that she was out last night with cosplay friends.

I posted about buying a first dress a few threads back
well, it arrived the other day. Unfortunately, my fat ass can't fit in it
However, despite my sister's protests that i should sell it (she hates lolita and think it's ridiculous), I'm using it as motivation instead!
I'm not super fat or anything but I could definitely stand to lose some weight
so I guess I'm glad that it doesn't fit.
I am a bit worried about her ruining it though. She's ruined stuff of mine before to spite me, albeit not as expensive stuff. And my younger sisters don't realise how much it costs, so they definitely won't be careful about it.

My cat got really sick seemingly overnight. We rushed him to a vet at 7pm and were told it was bladder crystals. We then took him to the nearest 24hr vet (an hour away, but conveniently right behind my boyfriend's house) because the first vet wouldn't have anyone overnight to watch him without a fee.

Stayed at my boyfriend's, was awake all night waiting for the vet to call me after they knocked my cat out and put a catheter in him. Went to sleep at 3am, got up 8am to pick him up and take him to our local vet. So far we've payed $1800 for him, and it's not unlikely for things to get even worse.

I've already cleared out my meager savings, and I feel bad borrowing money from my parents/boyfriend so I am seriously contemplating selling all my brand to cover it.

It seems like everything that could go wrong these past few months, has.

You'll eventually find other friends. I hate to say it but my relationship with my best friend has changed drastically because of this. She lives with her bf, doesn't work, constantly complains about money. Her parents and bf still pay for everything for her and she's only worked a job for a few weeks. Last con, she annoyed everyone because we all had money for ourselves and she spent all of hers on day one. Spent the whole weekend crying and complaining about being 'so broke' and not being able to afford food. It gets old.

I'm going on vacation and to a con this year with another friend that has his shit together. We planned and paid for everything together. Would've loved to take my best friend but, lo and behold, no money. Another friend that I haven't even known as long as my best friend came to visit because he actually could afford to. If I want to see my best friend, I always have to travel to her. I get that everyone goes through rough patches but if you're complaining and putting in zero effort then there's only so much I can put up with.

You can still stay friends but hang outs will likely be few and far between

>> No.9480538

>>9480501
As someone who's on the other side of this, I agree. Even if you don't bitch about it, you just can't do stuff together, if you can't afford even small things. And friendship is doing shit together, not just talking. Experiencing stuff. And if someone can't fulfill that minimum requirement of available income to do shit, your friendship is gonna suffer long term, no matter what else is going on.

And that's okay. People always act like social circles shouldn't ever shift and people should always stick together, but that's the same stupid shit as saying every marriage should be for forever and people can't ever split. People always drift apart for a shit ton of reasons. I have 2 friends I made in kindergarten, that I kept up with during all the difficult times of childhood, school and shit. Now I haven't seen them for years. Everyone is busy with their different lives. People move a lot. It happens. This is only an issue, if you're someone who always needs someone to lean on.

Fuck anon, that's really messed up. Speed up the whole "moving out" thing if you can otherwise your stepfather will try and drag you back in. The fact he's not only physically abusing you (that's fucked no matter the situation) but also moving towards sexual stuff is genuinely worrying.

One of my friends had a similar stepfather and she ended up reporting him to the cops and getting him on a domestic abuse list. Moved out straight away and managed to get her life back on track. If you do move out, make it fast (like 1 or 2 days) and don't hang around; file a report if the fucker is doing ANY of that stuff but make sure you're out or else shit can hit the fan. A toxic environment will only get worse and I'd hate to see ypu caught up in that anymore than you have to anon

Don't beat yourself up anon, there's always a way to make these things work. Being tall just gives you a little extra to work with in regards to what you can wear.

Maybe even try changing up your wigs if you don't like your face shape and see which styles frame your face better, even if you have to stray away from traditional sweet styles.

That being said there are ways to make things more flattering.

My comm wasn't interested in seeing some theatre, but I just got a text from a guy I like and haven't talked to in a while asking if I wanted to go next week. I think I'll do a toned down coord. I've been itching to wear my Maiden of Versailles JSK out. Could kinda pass for a flashy-elegant normie dress.

I first got into cosplay back in.. probably 2006 or 2007, when I was in middle school. I remember spending hours on deviantART and youtube and whatever else I could find cosplay content on, dreaming of one day doing it and having cosplay friends and having so much fun. It was SUPER cringey looking back but at least the cosplayers I loved to follow enjoyed themselves and loved what they did.

I cosplay and go to cons now, but I never made cosplay friends and grew up to be, admittedly, pretty ugly, which definitely effects making friends/feedback on my cosplays. Whenever I see selfies/pics of groups of friends cosplaying and having fun and enjoying themselves I feel so.. empty. That's what I always dreamed of and ended up just growing up into an awkward and shy and nothing-special person, and that fun is still out there but I can't seem to find any part in it.

Just get out there, anon. Join a group cosplay. Even if you have no social skills, if you go to tons of events and find a way to run into the same people over and over, your social skills will improve and you'll find yourself a few acquaintances that could later become friends.

Negative self-esteem will only make it harder to make friends. Get your confidence up, if only because you know it'll make it easier to build relationships.

The group of friends I room with at conventions are full of drama, have made me lose a lot of money (dropping/changing rooms last minute), and are all catty to one another on top of other petty things I can complain about but don't directly involve me. I'm always in charge of the rooms, and right now I have an Otakon and Katuscon room booked with them but I do NOT want to room with them after Colossalcon.

My hair colour is one of the few things I like about my appearance, and my hair gets really damaged. Thankfully it's just a few at the moment and not noticeable yet. I don't really mind tweezing, but I only tweeze my eyebrows and upper lip every now and then. Waxing and shaving would suck though.

If you're short enough you'd have a better chance than me. at least you'd FIT into the clothes, if you dress well people wont think you're a fetishist, and normies will think your a fetishist either way.. Embracing androgyny is hard when I've always just wanted to be cute.

I did ponder the idea of Ouji for a while, but became quickly discouraged when I found out I'm too tall for that too. Got better at wigs- straight hair just looks really bad on my face shape and lengthens it, curly hair frames my long face. Thank's for the right words.

I learned that flat eyebrows do wonders, and my issue with custom sized dresses is most chinese stores don't know shit about working with tall girls. I do wish To Alice did custom orders though, they make such cute stuff


I just have to find a new style I like, where I don't feel awful in it. I'm not sure where to start, and that's what's making this whole process feel long and awful.

I have had several dresses that I swear hadn't been washed ever before and were released early 2000's. Some of them were apparently visibly dirty all over because they were a different shade after washing. I have received stuff reeking of BO and one dress had so bad scent I couldn't bring it into my room but had to left it outside for more than ten hours in weather below zero celcius to be able to take it inside.

I'm always curious what people mean when they call themselves ugly, because I feel like most things can be fixed? I'm not talking about plastic surgery, but if weight is an issue you can lose it, and if it's facial features, makeup and hairstyle go a long way. I'm saying this as someone who used to have terrible self esteem and looked awful, but once I figured out how to do my hair to frame my face well my confidence improved, so I made friends, so I put more effort into myself and made more friends, and so on. If nothing else you could always cosplay characters with masks and see if that makes it easier to talk to people.

I just recently reached out again but I got the major feeling that they didn't want to deal with me. It was more drama then it was worth and I feel terrible but I don't think there's a way to go back.

I thought maybe, getting myself more involved with other people and cons would help. But all it really does is shove in my face how much I miss them. I can't just quit the scene either because it's become such a big part of my life now. I have a lot of good memories and I inadvertently end up comparing what was then and now.

A friend once told me the longest relationships burn the brightest. As regretful as I am.

I feel really uncomfortable about AX.
Last year I went with my boyfriend and we fought right before a /cgl/ meetup, I went alone and met a guy there. He was really cute and I sorta forgot about my problems while I was around him and we had a good time. Afterwords he took me back to his hotel and I had sex with him. I really regretted it after and left as soon as I came to my senses and went back to my hotel and climbed into bed with my boyfriend and put my arms around him and cried into his back. I told him I was crying because of the fight, he still doesn't know.

But the guy I slept with has been turned into a meme and people shitpost about him all the time and I know he's going to go to meetups this year for sure because of the stupid meme and I feel like I'll break down if I see him.

You need to treat yourself. I recommend you keep taking care of your skin, body, and hair. Ask yourself, "Am I too old, or have I just let myself go haggard?"

A lot of time older folks let themselves go, and it just leads to a spiral of feeling ugly. Worse comes to worse, and you truly feel "too old" then see what you can modify. Usually makeup is where you need to start. I bet you are getting those feelings because you are letting your appearance go. Deep condition your hair, fix it, do a face mask, exfoliate, do a sleep mask, paint your nails, and see how you feel afterward.

I know some of that feel, always kept distant to cosplay and been too chickenshit for it. 28 now and I really want to get into it, though I am a bit fortunate in that most long-term stuff I'd love to do will not be bothered by the age issue. Still I don't like to think about how much time was lost and how much time is still going to be lost because I can't start this overnight. So please do not try and put it off, I know it sucks and it's hard and irritating to keep putting yourself out there but please keep doing it. I am sure it will work out with time. Since you a woman I dunno but maybe try and get makeup advice? Seen that shit work like magic for some.

And on the flipside, a lot of those curated and processed selfies/pics of groups of friends only tells part of the picture. Take a look at this thread or any others and you get to see the drama and poison and stress and envy and insecurity behind it. Year or two back I felt a bit jealous of three gal friends for being married/having good relationships. Not jealous of their men just jealous of the idea of it. Then I hear about the major relationship problems one had, the medium relationship problems the second had and the third I assume has some skellies in her closet. Envy is a very deadly sin and it's something you always gotta struggle against but it helps me to remember that I have things that they would envy me for, they have things I would envy for.

Is there really no means to do older women shit with Jfash or whatever you're after? I'm not an expert so I am thinking from an anime/art point of view but I'd have to imagine you could pull off a classy evil ara-ara look. Like I am not a Castlevania fan but just looking around there seem to be a few girls with that kinda victoriany feel to their outfits I assume is a part of gothic lolita.

Even jnig, yaya, and momo show less skin than the average anime and video game.

For fucks sake you'll call someone doing an accurate bayonetta cosplay with the cleavage and thigh windows a whore if it weren't canon while fapping to them then spend hours defending it as 100% nonsexual and "just her fashion sense" ingame. Bikini cosplays are horrible but quiet's design and ingame scenes are completely reasonable. Cleavage and boob physics in WOW are just accurate dimorphism but jnig wearing less revealing armor is an insult to "Real gamers" everywhere.

if your weight is naturally distributed to your hips and legs (especially if you're short), there's not much of a chance in fitting brand socks better. especially print socks (if you don't want the print to stretch) are made for stick thin models.

Not the same poster. But in college I walked everywhere (several miles a day) exercised, and was on my feet for a long shift at work. My legs looked huge and i got horrible sock indents in spite of being 114 lbs.

Just being upright all the time led to a lot of swelling. I had gone to the doctor thinking the bruising and denting was lipedema and she was like lol just do less on your legs and you'll be fine.

It won't but you can try and build up other places/lose general weight. Like, you can be underweight and still metabolically overweight in terms of fat composition.
