I kinda feel bad rn because i waited a long time to crossplay at my local con but didnt, my reasoning is that i didnt want my family to find out i do this and the other fact my friend brought another person with them that i dont like and dont want them to find out im a crossdresser. it was also very hot :/

I'm feeling really down. I put on a bit of weight in the past couple years and then had a pregnancy that just ended in a miscarriage. So now I'm losing a ton of weight and dealing with that alone. I have been trying to plan a cosplay to work on and cheer myself up with, but between my weight and the medical expenses I haven't done much other than lay in bed for when the pain is the worst and go to work when the pain is just okay.

I'm not used to being this bummed out. I just want to feel excited for something in the future again.

Check out the bad cosplay thread though. A janitor got in an argument with another anon and deleted half the argument so they would win. I don't think that's good janitors at all.

I'm so excited for ILD. I'll most likely spend it alone but imo that's the best way to spend it, wallowing in nostalgia and everything that's made lolita magical when I first discovered it, and what it means to me, personally.
I do love my comm but I feel that there's a special value to my personal connection with the fashion, and ILD is a great opportunity to really immerse myself in it.

I’m obviously going about re-losing the weight, although I’m naturally near the line for being underweight so even with that my bust is rather large for my frame. I could afford the surgery and it’d perk my boobs up a bit, but it’s also something extremely permanent and I’d never have my current bust size again.

Sucks about the dress being a different color than you expected. Remember to always translate the listings in case the pictures aren't clear and the sellers mentions the color in the description. If there's no mention of the color and you're still not sure, ask your ss to ask the seller for you.
Anyway, what dress is it? Is it easy to find? Can you just sell it and wait until the blue colorway turns up?

The idea of going to a con is just exhausting at this point. I remember being ten years ago and running around like a rabid weasel until 3 in the morning fueled on only granola bars and soda, spending truck loads of my part time job money on useless anime shit (most of which I don't even have anymore)

I've made two new costumes to wear and I'm proud of them, but the idea of waking up in a hotel room, getting dressed, and walking around that many people, contemplating the over inflated things in the vendor hall... It just sounds so exhausting.

I'm pretty sure I'm either losing or have already lost my only lolita friend. We used to talk a ton but it's died down a lot. I understand that life gets in the way, but I'll see her posting on insta and I just sort of get disheartened and feel like I'm burdening her with trying to talk so I've tried to converse less and less with her.

I've been a lolita for a long time, 8 years. In those 8 years I'd never joined a comm and had never really had a close lolita friend besides her, and now I'm sure she's gone. I know friendships fade but this ones hitting me hard, I trusted her with so much and it feels like I'm holding onto a ghost of a person who's moved on a long time ago.

I'm pretty sick right now with something that probably won't ever go away so it's not like I can join a comm and try and forget about her, and making friends online is way harder than it used to be. I've tried the friend finder thread but most people who have added me never actually started a conversation. Most people on social media think I'm stuck up when I'm really just shy.

My first big prop is turning out to have a poop brooch-like texture. Sanding helped a lot, but didn’t completely fix it. I don’t know if it’s even possible to completely fix it without starting from scratch.

A-at least it’s not brown, so it won’t look completely like poop. I’m still paranoid of someone taking a hall shot and posting it on cgl though.

I’m going to chalk this up as a learning experience and redo it after this weekend’s con. I’m still really disappointed in myself though, because this is a cosplay I’ve been wanting to do forever.

This will be long and disorganized.

I'm so frustrated with my comm.
When I first got into lolita I used to attend to all meets and talk with everyone at ease, but now...

As time went by, I started learning more about the fashion, its rules, its icons, brands and the lifestyle in general. I enjoy reading comics and books about lolita fashion, I love talking about it and dedicating a part of my day to that "lifestyle".

But then I started to notice that everyone in my comm, and I mean EVERYONE, no exception, is a conlita. They don't wear lolita fashion if it's not for a convention, they don't know about the brands names besides Angelic pretty and Baby, they don't like to keep up with releases or read about it online.

I tried to make the comm grow by hosting a meet once in a month, but then I noticed that the comm mod would never go to these meets that weren't organized by her, and with that a lot of people also felt discouraged to come.

Not only that, my comm mod started going to conventions with the comm and asking the organizers for some time at the stage to talk about the fashion, but, instead of teaching people about Lolita, she would use it to dance "kawaii uguuu" songs while in lolita. That makes me so mad I feel like slapping everyone.

So I just stopped with everything that could tie me to that comm and started being a lonelita. It's okay, I love this fashion and it really makes me feel good about myself, but it's hard to watch them making Lolita seem like an idol costume.

I just wanted a nice friend to talk about these things and to go out once in a while... but it feels impossible now.

You kinda just have to force yourself to do it, imo. compliment someone, say hi to people when you're all waiting for something. Make the first move. It helps if You're in clubs or have hobby type interests where you have to be around other people so you have something to talk about. don't worry about people hating you, just talk and move on, don't think about it too much. but if you just stop talking to people without making the first move occasionally, you'll see that people tend to move on and go away. make an effort, anon.

I have a similar problem that's only made worse by my depression. I want to have friends and make friends, but the days I have enough energy to interact aren't enough to counteract the long periods of time when I can't force myself to talk to people and send them texts and IMs and actually keep the relationships intact. My only real friend is further along in her battle with depression and just understands that I'm hardly ever going to be the one to reach out and suggest plans, etc. Most nights we just smoke pot and watch horror movies, and honestly it's perfect, but sometimes I wish I was more normal and could make more friends and do more stuff.

Restrict your calories. I usually eat about 1700 a day but if I need to shed pounds I have to cut down to 1200 or less to get my body to let go of fat. Probably just a slow metabolism. You might have that problem too, but eating less usually makes more of a difference then working out super hard.

>> No.9897245

Years ago on FB I had three cute cosplay friends who always playfully made fun of each other. I made a post like "Trying to think of what the fuck I wanna cosplay this year, suggestions?"

One of them comments "We should cosplay Quote and Curly together!" to which another responds "Bitch, why would he wanna cosplay with your uggo ass?" and the last one replies "I'd make a better Curly."

They went back and forth in my comments section for like a whole 2 or 3 hours, and although I knew their personalities and knew they were just having fun fucking with each other, I got a PM from my dad like "that's my fuckin boy, makin girls fight over him."

He sounds like he's just a vendetta-chan but I literally have no clue why he's actually doing it. The only thing he should actually have a vendetta against is I am literally repulsed by dirty dishes and touching them makes me wanna puke (and sometimes I do, so my partner usually does them). He never buys any household nessecities either and will refuse to buy any so I end up spending a lot of extra money on our household because of it.

Yeah just look at all these (You)s. Obviously all me. Why are male posters here so fucking vapid?
They have to make it all about their dick and get mad when told not to. It’s embarrassing.

Please make another post about it replying to this, I know you can't help yourself. You should get daddy to tell you to stop

Denial is a defense mechanism. Seek help.

Not even the anon you’re replying to, but holy fuck you are being annoying. Dude just stop, you’ve already made an ass out of yourself. We get it. You’re new here. Learn to integrate already.

nayrt, but are dicks the only thing you think about? Every single thing you post has "dick" in it.

Which girl? I'm stringing no one along. Every girl at my work knows I'm not interested.

get it pierced, Anon. ask your piercer to flip it up after piercing it, then leave it that way for several weeks and the makeup won't get in the way. septums are easy to heal so after that you'll be good

I feel you anon. I'm in a kinda similar situation. Am not really interested in any of the girls that like me and the one I could actually imagine something more with apparently already has a bf or just no interest in me. Which is just a real shame since she seems to be the perfect cosplay gf I've always wanted.

NAYRT but I'm a guy who just started looking into this board because I didn't realize it existed. I want to understand the culture because it seems so different from other boards but still familiar, that and I got /fit/ and wanted to figure out what I should cosplay.

a-and I'm hoping some of the chicks here are damaged enough to want to date me.
