idk where you live but most anime cons have a generally friendly atmosphere and you'll see kids from around 13 up roaming unsupervised without being harassed, and if they're with a chaperone then it's fine because most creeps will avoid you and the ones that don't can just be told to fuck off

I feel like the cosplay fairy godmother. He's gonna be so surprised, I'm excited.

Also maybe it's because of when I started lolita, but does it irk anyone else when sellers can't label things with the proper name? I'm not talking about super old stuff before things were well categorized, of course. We have resources now, though. You can look that shit up.

It depends how confident his sis is desu, he'd have to judge based on her own personality and how well he thinks she could handle herself. Obviously there's a risk stuff could happen anyway, but the same sort of stuff could happen to an adult woman so it's not really underage-specific.

Personally I have 2 younger sisters and I'd trust the younger one at a con but not the older one, since I know from past experience she freezes when confronted with creeps, or tries to be polite out of fear of making them angry and never tells them to fuck off.

Today I thought about selling off all of my wardrobe and leaving the fashion and dress normal.
I'm tired guys. Wearing lolita has been really fun, and I enjoy it so much. But I have so many more things I want to focus on, and I feel like the money I could make from selling off my wardrobe would kickstart me into full adult mode.

But I think about how long it took too acquire some pieces, and how good some of them make me feel, and I can't let go.
It's like a porcelain piggy bank. The money is there, but once you crack the pig, you can never put it back together.

Shes not ugly, her features are just not "conventionally" attractive I guess? Shes thin and well groomed and in my opinion looked cute as heck in her cosplay.
But even if she was super ugly, it would still be rude af to exclude her like that. These photogs asked to take photos of us, they could have just not taken photos at all if they thought she was that ugly. Or they could have just sent the photos to us privately and not publish any of them.

Made a Mario themed boombox that seemed to be fairly well received last year at DragonCon and have a new one built on a backpack frame. My cousin will be wearing one with a wash light, lasers, and a derby light.

We try not to be total jerks with our music and not blast it in tight crowds or around people who obviously don't want it in their face, but I'm a bit worried we may end up being obnoxious anyway.

IMO the problem is never the sound, it's just when the boombox goes nonstop without some kind of relevant music for a costume or convention it quickly becomes grating.

Hey, anon. I've struggled too. I really hope that maybe you can find true recovery eventually, because it's so good. I can go places. And do things! Without worrying about what to eat and what not to eat.
I know how embarrassing it can be when people find out, and what a terrible situation to be in. I really hope you don't sweat it too much. If your comm are actually your friends, they'll support you any way they can or just not bring it up again. If they're rude about it, fuck em. You have an illness, and you're trying to recover. That's all that matters.

I think I may have lost a cosplay friend, or in the process of losing them. We were hanging out one day and working on cosplay and they kept making comments like "I wish I could be good like you" to "Why do you put so much effort into your costumes" to "You're not allowed to book photoshoots at this con". The thing that kinda did it for me was they bitched at me for WEEKS for having pics of Katsucon on my snapchat when they couldn't go, and then proceeded to rub in the fact I couldn't go to a yearly con I go to. I personally think they kinda sorta suck at cosplay, and I understand they're insecure about it, but there's no reason to be a bitch about it. ugh.

I have developed a vague interest in /cgl/ type fashion. But I can never wear it, so now I mostly stay away from /cgl/ just because it makes me feel bad to see all these cool fashion pieces that I can't wear. I want to browse the threads, but I know seeing them will make me go reeee and feel bad.

I'm at a convention this weekend, and it's so boring and lonely. I get to talk a bit to one person I know from before, but we aren't hanging out and I'm not hanging out with any of the other people there either, and the person I talk a bit to have friends approaching them all the time and I'm jealous.
It's really time to leave this hobby, conventions always suck and I'm friendless and disliked but I got nothing else and convention and cosplay people are some of the most willing to talk to strangers.
tfw many of the people who are the most important to you don't care about you at all and just see you as a bother and you never meet them anyway unless you run into them at a convention
ugh I hate my life it sucks so much.

And reminds me of my first point a bit, for the same reasons I can't wear cool /cgl/ fashion I also can't to any of my dream cosplays, the cosplays I truly want to do. So even if I decided to just stop doing social interaction at conventions and just went for the cosplay competitions without talking to anyone, that'd still be impossible because I have no passion at all for the characters I can cosplay REEEEE I wish my cosplay dreams could come true but nope, never ever will I get to do what I want to.

And speaking of dreams, it would also be soooooooo cool to do some cosplay videos or something but that's impossible when you got no cosplay friends. Another impossible cosplay dream.

And one more, never ever will I be part of a dance group and do Hare Hare Yukai, something I've wanted for so many years.

I wore lolita for the first time in ages and had to take it off. I felt so stupid looking and uncomfortable.

I still love lolita, but wearing it just isn't that fun anymore. I've spent several years involved with this fashion and the thought of leaving lolita is unthinkable, and yet here I am, pathetically changing out of my dresses in favor of comfy, normal clothes. Maybe it's time to move on, but I sure don't want to.

Sorry about being whiny. I'm really at a loss and can't figure out what I want.

>> No.9531846

If I get stupid questions on the dresses from potential buyers where the answer is in the description, I won't answer them. If you're too stupid to look past the pretty picture to read the info or use google, you shouldn't be in lolita.

Maybe the style you have isn't working out for you anymore, have you considered trying something new? Like moving on to classic if you've been wearing sweet, or changing the cuts and styling you choose within your preferred substyle, etc.
If that's not it, you might want to consider moving on if the fashion truly doesn't make you happy anymore. There's no point in torturing yourself over it, and it'll be here if you decide to come back in the future.

I don't think that would help me, though I do appreciate the advice, and it is a good suggestion.

I tried mixing my stuff in with my normal wardrobe, but even though my things aren't OTT at all it just felt off somehow. I know it doesn't make a lot of sense, but I really do love these clothes even though I don't seem to like wearing them anymore. Makes me feel like I've become old and boring. I'm getting tired of the effort alt fashion takes in general.

I don't have any lolita friends, and my only friend isn't interested in any alt fashion at all, so I don't have anyone to talk to about this, which is why I'm whining about it on cgl.

I used to have similar struggles especially with booze and weed. Dependency just creeps up on you, you keep looking for more opportunities to smoke some or drink some and in the end you can't manage to not do it.
Being apathetic is possibly going to be your downfall. Not the drugs themselves. If you ever find the courage to do so, change your life around drastically when you've got nothing more to lose. Move abroad if you can. Leave your old problems behind and start anew.
You've just got to be strict with yourself. Have some willpower. Your future self will thank you, even if it seems so far away now. You'll probably read this and be like "I wish I could do that, meh" and then not change anything after all. I've been there. But I hope it will at least make you think about it.

Oh man, sounds like we're the same person. I used to have shitty skin and I'd get tons of acne all the time, I'd have new zits everyday. I'd pick them obsessively to the point where makeup wouldn't cover stuff and I didn't wanna leave my house.

You said you can't do accutane but can you try any other oral medications? There are a couple antibiotics that also help people with severe acne.

I got on doxycycline and it's like a miracle pill. My skin is so nice and clear now. I'll probably have to be on it a couple months out of the year every year, but whatever. I don't experience any side effects from the medicine. spironolactone is another antibiotic some people take for their acne that helps.

Try just asking your normal doctor about it. I actually just went to one of those CVS minute clinic walk-in things and asked for doxycycline for my acne last year and the ARNP happily prescribed me 2 months worth.

Anxiety and bipolar disorder isn't a fun combination.
Swinging into a depressive phase while having a bad anxiety phase is horrible.
My bipolar is currently like "You're a horrible person because you aren't making 6 figures, your room is a mess, you say stupid things. You should just kill yourself"
While the anxiety is just "Everything ever is horrible. The world is going to end and you're not going to be prepared for anything ever." Which makes killing myself seem like another good option.
I'm good enough because of thought therapy that I know that these are irrational thoughts, but it's still one of the worst feelings ever. I want to curl up in a ball and just shut everything out and try not to throw up.

I thought if I was really successful with my career and had the financial success to back it up that I'd finally get the recognition and acceptance I'd been chasing my entire life. It didn't happen. I just get compared to other people again, who do things better. Even if it's like a random person they met or a son of a friend of a friend.

They make jokes in the show about how stocking is curvier than panty and it's the only reason she can pick up dudes that aren't pedophiles. They also state panty is fit and runs a lot. Pantys counter part is curvy and Stockings counter part is flat because they're supposed to be opposites.

When in the alternate style Stocking is very noticeably more endowed.

I've been cosplaying for almost four years and I feel like I should be better than where I am right now. My construction, posing, propmaking, wigstyling, and makeup skills all leave something to be desired and I end up hating how I look in every photo I see of myself in cosplay. It isn't a body image thing, I'm fine with how I look whenever I see myself in the mirror, it's just that I get so frustrated with how my cosplay turned out or how stiff/unnatural my pose and expression is.

I think a lot of it ties to my severe (diagnosed but untreated) ADHD. When starting a new costume, I will initially hyper focus on a few minor details, and my poor time management skills usually results in me rushing to finish my outfit the night before or even worse the morning of the con. I know that if I have to rush a cosplay the night before, I should just not finish it and wear another outfit, but my stuff often seems "good enough" to wear to the con, even if there's an obvious flaw or missing detail. Once the con is over, I get my pictures back, hate how I look in them, but start the process all over again with a new cosplay. I have fun cosplaying and attending conventions, but I don't know why I keep putting myself through this stress and keep producing mediocre results. I don't know if I should slow down in order to break cycle I set for myself. I keep telling myself that "practice makes perfect" and if I keep pushing myself, eventually I'll be happy with something I make. I feel like I have decent enough skills when it comes to sewing/propmaking/wigstyling, I just keep shooting myself in the foot because of my failure to pay attention to detail and terrible procrastination habits. I also don't know if I'm being too hard on myself and my stuff is fine or if my criticism is 100% justified.
Sorry for the blog post, I'm just frustrated with myself and I want to get better.

I don't have ADHD anon but I have similar executive function issues.
I'm sure your costumes look better than you think, and you are being overly critical but if you really want to improve, you are going to need to change your way of working and use your hyperfocus to your advantage.
If possible, don't make a new costume for the next con- use all the time to redo one or two aspects of an existing cosplay which you can complete during the hyper focus period. Same goes for practicing posing, wig styling, make-up etc.

ADHD is tough and can be really difficult to manage, but it also has traits which you can use to your advantage, so embrace them and rock your cosplay!
You might make fewer costumes overall but you will have ones you can be super proud of!

My father threw out a bunch of my stuff without telling me- including an AP bow and beret, some indie accessories, and other sentimental knick-knacks. Unlikely to be an accident since he's made an habit of breaking/throwing away things that he knows are important to me out of spite- he didn't seem to care when I told him what he's done. Needless to say that I was quite upset.

I told my mother about this and considers this to be the last straw, since she's had to stand him all her married life. We're going to move out in the next few months. I'm glad she understands since she doesn't particularly like Lolita but knows that it's one of the few things in my life that makes me happy.

I'm really starting to feel my age when it comes to not being in a serious relationship. (Serious as in marriage down the line in a couple of years) And I know I shouldn't rush into one just because I feel lonely and old, but that's exactly what's going on in my mind.

I don't seem to comprehend why it's so easy for people around my age to be in long-committed relationships turn-to marriage; while I'm here single again on match.com for the third fucking time.

I just feel like there's something wrong with me and that I will end up married to some divorced guy who already has kids from his first marriage.
Hell, I'm actually kinda pretty and in good shape, have a BA with a full-time job
Why can't I find my "soulmate"?

You aren't going to like this but if you really are of marriageable age and can't find someone it boils down to

1. Immaturity

3. Ugly and won't settle for someone on the same level of attractiveness

Youre not going to find quality people on dating sites if you hadn't had luck yet. Go take a class or go somewhere where you think your ideal partner would hang out. Also invest in your friendships as they might introduce you to somewhere. I made a sailor Jupiter costume for a hairy muscley dude friend who was griping about relationships. One of my classmates saw pics of him later on my comission page and said holy shit introduce me. They're now going on 6 months together.

Maybe you're looking for love in all the wrong places? Or you don't go out enough. You said you work full-time so maybe you have to start venturing out more on your days off?
And wear something that shows off your body shape if you're fit. Not everyone is going to break down your door if you're dressed in frills, but maybe throw some liz lisa dress on and they'll think you're "girl next door" cute. Which is totally wife-material

Especially these days it's possible to be 25+ and just socially inept. Only way to overcome it is to immerse yourself in social activity. But I wouldn't make "getting married" a goal because you may end up rushing headfirst into a bad situation. Something like 50% of marriages end in divorce, so "getting married" isn't always a good thing, nor will it automagically make you happy.

My friend straight up decided that she doesn't want to be friends anymore. We had one conflict and I thought we did fine after that but nope. I'm not super mad but I don't sympathize with her problems anymore. She's really greedy brandwhore so I'm tempted to buy her dreamdresses (we have same taste so it's not like I don't want them) so she could learn to be less of an idiot with her actions or just be mad and jealous. I know it's really not the best thing to do but I have never been angry at a person so I feel like I want to free myself a little bit and of course I don't want to rub the dressed in her face but carefully make her know I got them first.

I feel you, I had to take a 2 year break from cosplaying because it just worsened my self esteem so much because I finished everything in such a hurry.
One thing I can recommend is maybe trying to make some more simpler costumes in between more challenging ones. They're easier to finish even on a tight deadline and also way easier to make look nice if you already have any experience with cosplays.
Also I've noticed that you'll get better at different areas of cosplay if you focus on them individually. I got miles better at makeup once I started doing it on my free time more too even if it's just playing around with different looks, and sometimes it's good to make a cosplay that's mostly just sewing, or maybe is otherwise simple but requires more effort on the wig or prop, things like that. If all of your costumes have a little bit of everything you will get better at everything, but at a much slower pace than you would when you focus on one thing at a time.
