I think Lor making this video was a good move - Tyler's coverage was funny to us lolitas and really ONLY us. Her covering someone outside the fashion that has a 'big' following was bound to have some pretty bad backlash from that side.

You're not an edgelord at all, you sound like a reasonable person. When people first started wearing Lolita in Japan, it was all about rebelling from societal standards. When did the whole ~lolitas should be luvlies~ crap become a thing in the first place?

>>9683395
>There's this one girl crying about how her video puts her off of lolita community for good

Good fucking riddance then. To wear lolita you need to have a thick skin and not cry about the opinions of strangers on the internet. Same goes for Kelly, none of the pieces she showed in her Japan hauls fit her fake boobs and looked good on her anyway. If this whole ordeal puts her off the fashion then that's not exactly a loss for the community. It's just one less whiny ita.

Bottom line is that we shouldn't feel afraid to speak our mind in order to not offend oversensitive types that probably don't even wear the fashion. Most of the people complaining are Kelly's fans who have already decided that anything that isn't 100% positive regarding her is wrong and that lolitas are all meanies and 'body shamers'. No sugarcoated critique is going to change their mind so why should we even bother? Good on Lor for trying but they're never going to see that what Kelly did was wrong. Yes she made a mistake but she handled it in the worst way possible and then broadcasted it to the internet without any remorse, and that will impact how Japanese brands will see the overseas community.

How about you give it a go then? I know I wouldn't have the balls to weather that kind of exposure and trolling.

Someone like Tyler is rare because she has a spine, manages not to give a fuck, and manages to actually be funny most of the time. And she doesn't dress like shit or have really weird mismatched make up. She also knows how cameras and lighting work.

She doesn't have bad hair, she doesn't look like a man, and she is smart enough not to surgically insert industrial waste products into her chest cavity. Pluss she doesn't dye her hair attention whore pink. She's not pudgy and not delusional enough to buy dresses she won't fit into. All things that make her a decent lolita.

Start by getting a skirt. I'm not accusing you of anything, but a lot of people are under the illusion that if they have big boobs they're not fat. The skirts are usually a lot cheaper than the JSKs and OPs, and if you don't fit into the skirts, sorry, you may actually be fat after all instead of just having big knockers. If you can only wear sack dresses you're going to look fat regardless.

Probably because she has a large following online, that's why she's perceived as an "influencer". She wears a lot of pastel clothes and her house is very cute, I'll give her that, but she's culturally insensitive and seems to have no respect for the country she claims to love so much, being a self proclaimed weeb.

They already are, though. Lolitaupdates allows otome brand updates alongside the lolita stuff. It can't really be helped if girls aren't quite as interested in these brands, or if they don't like the distinctly different otome vibes as much as they like the pure lolita stuff.

If you're talking about lolita general on here, there's a kneejerk reaction because the most often times we see these brands mentioned, it's usually a noob asking why their otome dress won't fit a lolita petticoat, usually followed by a lot of explaining of what otome brands are and how they're left out of lolita brands lists precisely because they often don't fit a petticoat, and how it's just not possible to get the right lolita silhoutte out of a cute dress that just doesn't fit a petticoat.

I don't really mind a discussion where the two are mentioned side by side, but I also don't miss the days where half the thread is given to explaining otome to some newbie who bought the wrong dress. I think if you make posts that make it clear you know this crucial difference (eg- start your posts with "otome brand, but ...." or "not-quite-lolita but this is nice" or similar), then your posts will do all right, the newbies wouldn't get confused and we won't have them asking ass backwards questions like "if I can't fit a petticoat under a JM skirt and JM is allowed discussion, then why can't I wear my F21 dress that has the exact same cut as this other JM jsk that's styled in a completely non lolita way to a lolita meetup".

Actually, every time I've seen it it's ETC being brought up. I think they went through a phase where a dress looks like it has a wide skirt, but the inside lining doesn't actually allow a petticoat. What's confusing is that they re-release their hits fairly often, so there's different releases of the donut dress alone that does or doesn't fit a petticoat, and someone who is buying it secondhand off yja or mbok won't be able to tell which one it is until it arrives.

You're right. I found them cheaper, for 45000 yen, but still, not sure why you'd want them. They're for the 6 to 12 age group, and many kids in public schools choose a less childish bag (backpack) by the time they're ten.

The clothes of that brand are really cheap, but they're making a killing on those randoseru because it's such a rite of passage and the grandparents on each side, who may have only one grandchild, fight over buying it and will spare no expense. It's still pleather and though made in Japan, not worth it. If you really want one, sometimes they go up on mercari.

So I almost made a separate thread for this, but I'll probably get better answer here instead of shitting up the board.

Any advice for introducing a non-weeb GF to lolita fashion? I haven't been dating her for very long, and this is more of a mid-term goal for me than anything else. I know she enjoys the 'gothic aesthetic', but apparently if she had known I was into anime before we started dating it would've been a deal breaker. She knows now (and apparently is crushing on me hard enough to overlook it. She seems to really enjoy how much of a deviant I am in general.), but I want to see her in some lolita fashion. It's not even just a sexual thing, she would just look so incredibly cute in it. Any tips for how to approach her with this idea? We are both in our twenties, and we're both on the lower end of the income scale. I don't really care about dressing her in brando, I just want a qt 3.15 gf who occasionally looks super cute. I realize these dresses aren't really built for strenuous activity. Seriously. I'd be super happy just going on a normal date with her all dolled up. She /seems/ to like getting dressed up, so I think there is a good chance she'd enjoy it too.

Oh. One more thing, she is a bit overweight. Should I hold off on introducing her to this just because of that? No offense but I've seen threads about how y'all bully each other. It's fucking hardcore. I am a little worried she'll get super into it and end up being destroyed by some sort of EGL mafia. Should I be?

I'm not going to try and force it. This isn't a requirement for me, not even remotely. It'd just be a... perk. I'm asking for advice on how I can introduce her to the idea of this stuff in the most favorable way, like a sales pitch. If she doesn't buy into it? I'm definitely not going to try and force the issue.

If I was going to try and force her into it, I wouldn't be here looking for an insight into the aspects of female psychology this stuff appeals to. She is her own person and if she doesn't want to dress in elegant clothes and have tea or whatever, I'll accept it.

Yeah, but this stuff is expensive as hell, and I am still naive enough to find stuff without a label attached to it cute/stylish. If I actually legitimately get into it, I'm signing up for a commitment to something waaaaaay out of my $10/hour salary, and possibly for two people?

I mean, considering how freakishly tall korean teenagers are now I could probably find stuff to accommodate my height, and it wouldn't be that hard to incorporate elements of this stuff into my wardrobe...

I'm not sure you even know what you're asking. You mentioned wanting for her to look "cute", and there's lots of jfashions that aren't lolita that it might be easier to get her interested in. Larme is cheaper and palatable to people who aren't used to jfash, for example.

That being said, if you're serious about getting yourself and her into lolita/aristo/ouiji, there are lots of ways to get cheap clothes, even for dudes your size. Check out the taobao thread.

One problem I experienced myself is that if you go surface level only and barely try to understand or dig deeper into it (at least in terms of culture and how to get good deals), your looks will look mediocre. Look at the it's thread, look into Ota no hime. Girls who shoehorn normie clothes into the fashion look like frumpy old ladies that didn't grow up in their minds. Yo I'm just don't get the look. You have to invest time in research and find the right dress, right color, etc. For me it was the search for achieving that look what has taken me so much time.

Look for yourself. You can get good brand for cheap in second hand. It just takes time to wait and learn what is a good deal. Taobao helps too. Cheap clothes can help, but won't look good unless you truly know the aesthetic points, the culture and have experience by looking at threads, maybe Instagram and Facebook groups.

I feel like the style of OTT costume like embellishments are creeping their way into baby/aatp's regular stuff too lately. Like the newest aatp angel print just has those organza ribbons that don't quite match and almost look like they should be on gift wrapping.

It's over-saturated to the point of newbies sincerely believing the fashion can only be worn with elaborate wigs on top of 100% matching coords dripping with lace and underskirts and accessories, and only ever at events or conventions, never casually like a street fashion should be.
None of this is stopping girls from wearing toned down coords and old school pieces on a daily basis, but it's disheartening to see the fashion turn into this, you know?

Same here! I like brand releases up to 2011 at most (I love Sugar Pansy for example) but since then, there's nothing I truly loved and if anything,the more it goes on the more I dislike what brands release. Baby totally changed imo and AP became taobao tier.
But hey,that means we usually get things for pretty cheap since they're out of the fashion (even despite the old school rise lately) and have already been owned.

Not trying to put down anyone liking new stuff or wearing OTT btw, you guys do whatever you want and i've seen OTT stuff that I actually liked on rare occasions but I just reaaally don't like seeing it so much.

Ahhhhh...I get it now, I guess it does suck seeing ppl go straight in to OTT without taking the time to just wear the fashion normally. I've never made a OTT coord, but I always found it fun watching those videos where the girls make sceptors or wings to go with their dress. Or huge fucking spoons can't forget the spoons.

Otoh, if you have fairly modest tits, like 32B range, these cuts make them look C to D range, if you’re going for that. So much cheaper and less painful and risky than getting implants.

I hope she gets professional help but she doesn’t look like she can afford it.

I wouldn’t say 99%, but about three quarters of my wardrobe is from between 2004 - 2011. Classic or gothic, but yesterday I bought my first lilac AP OP and I’m eyeing two more, all lilac, pink, and sax. Never thought I’d fall into pastel and like it. I’ve ordered pastel wool to crochet matching boleros, hope some good patterns are posted in the handmade thread.

What's the price of international shipping like from BTSSB New york? I'm from Canada and I'm eying a few things there. I heard AP USA usually has ridiculously high shipping so I'm wondering if Baby is the same.

I usually buy second hand from Japan so I have little experience buying directly from brand.

I think you can check shipping if you type in your info but don't actually check out.

I buy directly from them when they release a piece that I like, otherwise I buy stuff that suits my style secondhand.

Seconding this. I looked all over the site and can't find a setting for it. Considering just deleting my whole watch list but that alone would take forever, deleting them one at a time.

Sorry for the nooblita question
I want to order some stuff from wunderwelt to my tenso address, on their website it says

"We can ship to package forwarding services.
Please note that for orders using such a service, PayPal is the only accepted payment method and credit card payment is unavailable."

How does that work? I imagine you would do that through their English website, does it detect automatically that you're shipping to a tenso address and then the website redirects you to paypal?

34DD is doable, especially if your 32 because it usually means youre not too fat/chubby else where. Im 34DD and i fit most brand as long as it has a bit of shirring. Avoid full shirring for now, unless you look good in normie full shirring one size fits all tourist dresses. You might even be able to fit some AP OPS without shirring with a tshirt or minimizing bra.

Recently found a taobao DD on a resale site. The original shop is sold out so this is currently the only listing I can find for it. For sizing, I'm at the top end of the small size and bottom of the medium. They only have the medium in stock. The dress has no shirring or lacing on it. Would it be a bad idea to get it? I'm worried about it being too loose.

just get the medium. dont wear something too small

Hey gulls, I'm new to the lolita scene and accidentally bid on something on LaceMarket from a seller who is on the blacklist (I only checked the blacklist after the bidding because I had assumed that people that were banned would not be allowed to post sales). The seller in question is "lolifairy" and she is now messaging me repeatedly trying to get my PayPal information.

I have sent LaceMarket support 3 emails about the matter all of which they have not responded to. lolifairy is now threatening to contact support regarding the matter and I really don't want negative feedback on my account considering I just started buying lolita. What should I do?

You should go ahead and buy what you accidently bid for. The user isn't on a blacklist.
