If you're part of a group/discord/chat, chances are that you're either being drowned out by louder people or you are the loud person and it's a bit tiring for everyone else to respond to your constant posts. Anyway, your comm almost certainly doesn't hate you. Is there anyone in your group whom you could ask privately just in case you are annoying people? Please don't ditch your comm over a simple insecurity, anon.

One of my childhood friends has a thread on lolcow and it makes me sad. It's weird to see all these people making up theories and guessing stuff about her when I know what she's really like and the truth is she's a kind person with a troubled past who is really not that interesting at all. I wish I could set the record straight but I know that it would probably just make things worse if I said anything.

Gay, a dude wearing frills would be repulsive. If I'm coordinating with a lolita, I'm going to do a bright ass color suit that's really old style, like I was the host of a show for young kids or something. Something like the color scheme of the shirt worn by Steve on Blue's Clues only turned into a multiple piece suit, or some 1800s military uniform that looks kinda ridiculous. I guess I'd look like a faggot in that, now that I think about it, but I'd rather do that than fucking frills.

I’m a fellow lonelita. I have been a part of my local comm for two years and have been to only one meetup during a con. I kept talking about death and other morbid topics to another girl and we kept getting stares. I wonder if I ever was posted about on cgl lol

I’m a socially retarded gull so I try my best to avoid other lolitas. There is only so much lolitas can talk about if there are no other common interests.

>I kept talking about death and other morbid topics to another girl and we kept getting stares

Clearly you are. I'm not saying this to be a bitch or to hurt you, it's an objective observation. It's fine to talk about morbid shit in general, but doing that at a meetup where other people are present is in poor taste.
>inb4 "I can't only talk about fashion all the time wehhh"
There are plenty of things to talk about unrelated to fashion that don't border on morbidity or potentially offensive subjects.

>> No.9850273

>>9850271
Nah, you’re not a bitch about it. I’m quite aware of how weird I am. I think the morbid topics come out of pure nervousness. It’s like word diarrhea.

My only interests include literature, history, and the occasional anime. I’m kind of a shut in. And I’m okay with that. I do sometimes think about meeting other lolitas but my nerves get the better of me.

Those are perfectly fine subjects to talk about at meetups.

Maybe not, but confidence, a good haircut, a good shave (or groomed beard), and some good skin care products will help. I've got skincare stuff standing by for once I get my body fat pct roughly down to 18% or so. Right now I'm 6'1", 240 lbs, with an estimate of 30% BF. My goal is to get below 15% and weigh at least 205, and then go cosplay someone from Yu-Gi-Oh, probably Kaiba because I'm tall, and have brown hair. This is thanks to an anon who inspired me when responding to an autistic rant I was going on, and they said I sounded like I was a character on a card game anime.

I see my development as a cookie in the oven, to appeal to folks on the board. I'm still baking, not ideal to be consumed by anyone yet. Still, coming into these threads has ironically produced a large paradigm shift in me. I was burning and wanted to make changes in my life, but I'm learning a lot by actually paying attention to how modern women think, and how they cope with the same day to day bullshit that men such as myself seem to believe only we put up with. I even feel like I've come to terms with my paranoid feelings stemming from my parents' divorce and my Dad's own paranoia and subsequent failure with later marriages. He's 51 and finally got it right after three divorces. I'm happy for him, but that's not a performance I want to replicate, and I think instead of being a sperg about it, I just need to loosen up, live my life, and just focus on living by my principles, instead of just scrutinizing women for their qualities.

The more pressing issue is that even though I'm still young enough to go to cons and all the other related things right now, if I do the responsible thing and go back to the demanding work, there's very little chance of me getting to do any of that before I'm 30. I mainly don't want to accept the feeling of "giving up" on being able to weeb, but also don't want to be that guy in his early 30's cosplaying and travelling to big cons alone.

Fuck your family.
If they gambled out a substantial amount of money you worked your ass off for, they don't deserve a second chance, they'd do it again. They still have their own hands. Too bad you didn't sign a contract. Make sure to make it clear how far you went to give them that help, that you feel cheated and that you will not help again. And keep the messages where they say the money had been gambled away, in case they try to shittalk you to your friends.

The issue with this is that a part of a family isn't able to be blamed, it lies mostly on the shoulders of a single person. I'm now planning to be prepared to take care of who isn't at fault since they're a victim in this too. So, it's not as simple as that. This was the last thing I had expected, since they had no prior history of being like this.

Drop your family.

I dropped all of my family in two different incidents. Dropped my dad's side of the family during the divorce which my brother supported my dad but my sister and I put our support behind our mother.

Afterwards I started getting into a lot of fights with her because she attempted to control my lifestyle too much which made me miserable. So I dropped that side of the family too. I refuse to let anybody get the way of my happiness because I was so fucking miserable from about 13 to 22, attempted suicide twice, horrible self-harm and put on every drug under the sun. Haven't had contact with any family in about a year now and I wish that wasn't the case but don't let anybody get in your way, family or not.

Drop them and let them suffer. You deserve happiness.

I have this friend who has had a poor track record of keeping cosplay plans with me and other people for years now. I've sourced things and given it to them personally so they don't have to and to save on shipping.
They've also been on about quitting cosplay and cons, but seem very keen to join me on things I express interest in and like an idiot I fall for it every time and end up disappointed or stressed out trying to bail them out.

Eventually they caught wind of me wanting to cosplay something and invited themselves. They told me that I must keep my plan secret, not tell/invite anyone else because I then run the risk of others inviting themselves into it or taking a role they would want - which I don't mind.
I feel like I've not been involved in groups for some time on account of wasting my time trying to plan groups with this individual.

I got to be in a few groups at some cons where they weren't present and I really enjoyed it. I even found myself feeling guilty for it.

Less than 24 hours later after being told I couldn't let my plan known or tell my friends they suggested a friend of theirs to join.
It took all of my willpower not to recount what they said the previous day. Instead I just said I wanted to keep it between us and work on the costume slowly with no pressure because it's a challenging one in hope that they'd forget about it while I work on it in silence. I didn't want the pressure of this near stranger because mine was easily the hardest costume to make.

I want to encourage my friend to take cosplay seriously again but I don't want to sacrifice my happiness anymore and to have the freedom to make my cosplays at my own pace.

I really hate that I have to feel censored with my cosplay choices, whether its a plan or progress.

Outside of cosplay they're a decent friend so I figured I would carry on and do what I wanted and they'd do their own thing. But I didn't think it'd pan out to the point where I feel controlled in my own hobby.

Get the Anki app for flash cards of all different kinds but especially Japanese and especially the beginning alphabets of Japanese. Go to realkana.com to test yourself and keep getting familiar with the shapes of the new syllables. Consistently study. You do more effective work by studying 15 minutes a day over 1 hr 45 min a week. The more times you do it the better you will be. This is the beginning and you need to stick with it to reach your goal. The kana will seem easy when you get to studying Kanji and you need kana for grammar and Kanji readings so it's important. You can do it. Like everything else in life just be consistent and put in the effort and the results will come.

A bit unrelated but I'm genuinely curious: Why do you want a lolita girlfriend specifically? I know you said you like the fashion and how different it is from mainstream fashion, but what else? Lolitas are quite different as individuals so I wonder what exactly you think you'll gain by dating a lolita.
When it comes from other lolitas, oujis, or people into other jfash styles it's understandable because we have a common ground, but I never quite understood "outsiders"'s (for a lack of a better term) appeal with our fashion to the point of wanting to date us.

I'm a guy, so if there's one thing that hooks me in, it's pretty girls. Say what you will, but I see a shitload of cute girls in Lolita. The combination is enough to make me want to get to know girls like that, because I'm inclined to believe outward appearance is reflective of how you are as a person. Having the audacity to do something like wear Lolita regardless of what people might think of you is a trait I find interesting.

Actually, could I get some advice on getting a good haircut? I cut my hair awfully short to where my hair is almost a high and tight, but I leave some length on top (it's faded and not pronounced like a pompadour), and I'm usually happy and comfortable with my hair like that, but when it grows out I do this comb over like so, because my hair looks very ridiculous without that combing, for work purposes. My question is how I could get a style that lasts longer, because when I get my haircuts as I described earlier, they don't last for that long before my hair gets into the state you see here.

>Having the audacity to do something like wear Lolita regardless of what people might think of you
Here is where I want to give you a fair warning: I don't want to say that most or even many lolitas don't actually have the audacity to wear the fashion regardless of what people think, but it's unfortunately quite common; girls either wear the fashion to conventions or to meetups exclusively, and if they happen to be alone in public when they're dressed up, they're terrified of even being looked at.
That's not to say that all lolitas are like this; plenty wear the fashion daily and don't give a rat's ass about the public's opinion on them, but like I said, the above is sadly quite common, as is the view that girls have to stop wearing the fashion when they reach a certain age.

Lolita is quite the subversive fashion but it's lost a bit of its subversiveness in recent years, and it's not uncommon to see people wear it just for likes on social media. So if you're looking for someone bold and unafraid to be genuinely frilly, you'll have to be lucky.

Someone I know recently started getting into lolita fashion (partially because I inspired her) and now she has sorta started making it into a competition.
The last time she spoke to me it was her asking me about the last lolita event I went to and then not really listening and just going on and on about all the different things she plans on buying. And then when I told her I was on a buying freeze she still sent me like 2 or 3 different things like, "oh anon you should buy this! oh wait just kidding. oh well we could have twinned!"
It kinda feels like I'm being a dick about someone who is excited but the way she words things just rubs me the wrong way.

Very recently she was telling me about how she is planning on buying Antoinette Princess (which she keeps referring to as the wrong name) and its taking all of my effort to be excited. It seems like shes buying it for the fact that its expensive instead of because she likes the dress.

o be honest I feel like it needs to be a little longer on top. The comb-over (not actual comb-over, of course), is a good look, but what you've got going on there is an awkward in-between stage where it's long enough to cover some part of your forehead but not long enough to have an even coverage that makes sense. Try for a length more like pic related. Try to style it so it has more volume and texture overal, too, since there it looks very flat and babby's-first-day-at-school vibes. Make sure you also comb it back and to the side and not forward to the side.

I think your facial features are fine and they'll probably even improve with some weight loss. This is an awkward tip, but I think practicing your smile to make it look less forced and learning your angles will help as well.

Not that anon but another "outsider" and >tfw no lolita gf shitposter. For me it's still 90% just really digging the fashion. It's kind of hard to see lolitas as people when you don't actually ever see them in person. You're all just pictures on a computer screen for the most part (I know you're real people with feelings and all that just bear with me). I didn't encounter an actual lolita until two weeks ago when a couple other anons and I got breakfast during a con and met up with one at the restaurant. 10/10 chick, would date, but you and I both know I can't use her as the face of all lolita gfs so we're still at just being in it for the fashion.

You aren't awful looking. However, what is with this awful angle that men do when taking photos? Picture related. Don't do this!!! Stop it! Raise your camera up more when taking photos.

Nah, I didn't think you were being rude. I wasn't trying to be rude, and I'm glad you didn't take it that way. I posted the Ursula meme because it's the best image for explaining 'that'.

I do have one serious suggestion, and it's going to sound a bit weird. Okay, so a lot of men actually trim and shape their eyebrows. They just don't talk about it to other men. I use to work as a cosmetologist, and I'd often have men of all ages request I shape their eyebrows. You do men's brows differently then women's, obviously. Uh, basically, you want to remove those really spare stray hairs that you can see way underneath the arch. Men's can be bushier then women's, but you want to get those hairs way out in left field. Then, we'll comb the eyebrows upward, and trim the stuff sticking way out. (It's quite obvious what needs to be trimmed.) We'll then do the same combing downward. It's kind of hard to explain.

If you get the chance though, find a esteemed salon in your area, and tell them you need your eyebrows trimmed. Most good salons will know how to trim men's eyebrows, and we don't charge extra for it when it's alongside a cut. That's when most men get their eyebrows shaped/trimmed, it's when they get their hair cut.

Eyebrows are about the only important thing just because they frame the face. Same if someone were to have facial hair. There's good beards, but there's also bad beards.

Personally speaking, body hair really isn't an issue. I guess most just kind of expect men to have hair. Men are hairy. That's just how it is. I'll have you know body waxing is a painful endeavor. The only men who really ever get body hair removed were swimmers and competition-level body builders. The latter was only because they were either getting close-up body photos taken in high-definition and/or covered in oil on a regular basis.

I really wouldn't worry about your body hair. Sure. Trim the ends if you've got underarm tufts sticking out of your t-shirt sleeves or something. Otherwise, don't sweat it.

It's only been me posting regularly for days on end, so far, including my own selfies once or twice. Lolita has been inspiring to me not only as a way to encourage me to be a better man, but also to not give a fuck what people think of me and to be myself, even if it regularly accrues cries of autism. I may genuinely have Asperger's, but I don't give a damn what they say, because I am still myself at the end of the day, and no diagnosis or discovery will change anything. I feel full of lust for life, like the air I breathe is amphetamine

I started off by memeing and then kinda fell in love with the Lolita style and the way it represented femininity, and realized I desired that greatly, so it became a true motivator for me to better myself. I also love the idea of Lolita as a lesson not to give a shit what people think of you, and to be yourself. Shit, I've had doctors suggest that I have Asperger's, but I don't bother finding out because I am Will, regardless of whether I get diagnosed or not. I'm self aware enough to recognize that this is the only thing that matters.

Drop the fuck out of them. My father died a slave to his relatives, constantly giving out money to his family members 'in need'. When he died they fought over the remains of his money like vultures, and attempted to cheat his kids out of their inheritance. Drop them or that WILL be you, and you wont have any time to see your immediate family having to micromanage your shady fuckwad relatives.

I was in the same boat but gave up on getting a lolita gf after receiving lots of nasty treatment and realizing far too many of them are just nuts. They would almost always refuse to believe a guy can like cute/pretty things and would instead assume I'm a rapist or pervert (guys have feelings too and stuff like that hurts). I still love the fashion and admire girls who take part in it, always will, but I'd rather not be treated like garbage just for being male. So instead I stay fit for my own sake and buy stuff for my own collection. If I had a gf into lolita I could be supportive and buy her all the brands she wants, but that's not gonna happen. It can't be helped as they say.

I'm sorry you ended up getting that treatment. I hope you understand that a lot of men are really stupid when it comes to talking to people in alternative fashion. I've had many random men think it's perfectly acceptable to ask me if the spiked collar I'm wearing is a 'BDSM' thing. It's tiring. No one walks around wearing BDSM equipment. I've also had people say off-the-wall stuff regarding thigh high leg wear. They feel it is perfectly acceptable to mention that they have a fetish for it out of the blue. Otherwise, a lot make the wrong assumption that your some sort of sex-crazed, party animal all because you're wearing something different then the norm, and they act idiotic. Also, there's the novelty factor people focus on which can come off insulting. There's stuff people would never find acceptable to ask a normally dressed person, but suddenly it is okay to ask about sex life if the person is dressed in a strange manner. Anyone wearing alternative fashion, whether it's a frilly dress or scary, has to deal with men asking the most bizarre stuff. You'll find a lot of frilly ladies have to put up with sex-oriented questioning.

It's not good to be bitter. I think men can love fashion without any sexual undertone. However, so many act so ridiculous that people act defensive for protection.

Seriously? Yikes. Well yes I do understand a lot of guys can be creeps/perves and the behavior you described is completely unacceptable, but that's no reason to automatically condemn all men. I couldn't see doing half the stuff you described and honestly just love cute/pretty things. Which itself is hard to admit to as a man and can easily have people assuming you're gay or a pedo, so I can understand a bit what it's like to have people jump to horrible conclusions. Real shame too, this is why we can't have nice things. Normal day to day fashion can be so bland and boring sometimes, people should feel more free to express themselves with it and get creative or have fun with it without being harassed or insulted. First and last time I wore something with the color pink on the streets someone called me a faggot from their car, and that was the end of that.
Anyways, I know there's probably plenty of decent girls out there into lolita or other alt fashions and wouldn't want to judge everyone the way we get judged, but it means having to deal with a lot of abuse and 'guilty before proven innocent' mindsets to find them.
