Cgl relate: I'm moving my rooms since my roommate moved out so I get to make my lolita stuff the main focus of our room despite the pleading cries of my GF. Feels good to reorganize and reclean and refurbish all my lolita stuff for proper storage!

Non cgl: gf wants a thc break and I'm an incredibly manic bpd and bipolar and ADHD baby and weed is one of the only things that chills me tf out and helps me focus. And helps me actually eat and sleep. Wish me luck. Not sure how long I'll suffer without

i feel like a phony. my jfashion friends know me as a nice person and my social media portrays me as a happy lolita with an okay life

but i'm actually an ana-chan with a benzo dependence and no irl friends. i don't wear lolita much anymore, i spend all of my time at work and school. i don't have the energy to talk to the friends i've made and i get nervous reaching out to them again after it's been a while

it feels like i'm keeping 3/4 of myself from my friends and it's making it hard to talk to anyone. the other 1/4 is just lolita, the other hobbies i have no time for, and trying to be supportive when i have the energy. i can't tell them what's actually going on. i'm not nice, cute, or wholesome at all. i'm a sick, grumpy, overworked imposter.

I understand anon, it's how I feel too. I'm not dependent on benzos but I was given fentanyl by a friend I had trusted and I ended up hooked. So now I have crazy cravings for drugs and have no way to get them, and no friends to be around me or go out with so i sit and stare at a closet full of beautiful clothing and a shitty drug addiction and feel awful about my life.

To any fatties claiming lolita sizing is ~so restrictive~ and how lolita is a fashion only for skinny people: shut the fuck up. I used to be bordering on overweight and back then more lolita items would fit me than now. I'm at the point where I'm happy with my body at 83cm bust, 62cm waist but 90% of everything I want to buy in lolita fits like a bag on me. Where are all these items only skinny people would fit into? I wish lolita would actually cater to skinny people, instead of getting bigger and bigger sizing over time.

Nayrt but I'm borderline a size Large, 36D cup, American and I can still fit in some earlier btssb. My biggest issue with fitting in brand is always my boobs, but the waists fit fine. Unless you're an XL or have some pretty fucked up measurements you'll probably fit in it anyways.

I think it's just become such a stigma that ~burando~ is INSANELY tiny.

Also not to say some of it is stupidly tiny (rip my love of AP empire cuts) but it's a lot easier to find dresses that fit chubbier girls, and I've even seen it fit fat girls without problems before.

Also what was your question?

>> No.9944929

>>9944928
Depends on the type of cosplay popularity you are trying to achieve. If it's patreon bux then yes with a sprinkling of nudity. Basically you're selling yourself as a softcore porn model. If it's at contests you need to be a master tailor. Get good at your craft.

>> No.9944931

>>9944928
Sexy body/fake tits give you instant popularity. I don't think it's sustainable and will go away as soon as you stop looking marketable.

Great craftsmanship will always come through, regardless of body type. Obviously this means whatever you decide to wear needs to compliment the body type you have. Not a perfect match, but in the general range.

Mine was more of a feel that one of my friends and I ended up cosplaying from the same series. She is a much better craftsperson than I, and I kinda got the feeling she didn't want to be around me in cosplay, maybe like she was embarrassed? It's not like I was trying to force myself into pictures or anything like that.

The majority of older women here cut their hair very short and in many cases their hair is so thin you can see their scalp through it. They’re definitely not wearing wigs. My grandma is actually one of the people who’ve said it’s really odd for me to own natural-looking wigs while I still have my own hair. When I first became interested in wearing wigs with lolita I tried to find a physical wig store so I could try stuff on and see if it matched my skin tone, but the nearest non-costume shop selling wigs was two hours away by train and aimed specifically at black women.

I really think it’s just a cultural difference and wigs aren’t equally common everywhere.

I'm heavily pear shaped and I look cute and fairly skinny on top but the bottom part is awful. I usually hate my face but it's actually ok in these. I never edit my pics but I feel like my pics taken with phone camera present me in much better way than I actually am.

Oof anon. I don't want to be mean to you because you really put yourself out there.

The skirt is completely not lolita, this outfit would be more suitable to be called gothic or aristocrat. Also the waist of the skirt is not nice. I suggest a corset or a vest to hide it. Also, don't forget that shoes, headdress and bag round out a good coord, so try to have those visible in your future coord shots. Sometimes you can have just a basic coord but something like headdress or interesting bag is what makes it pop.

Keep going, you will improve fast since you are so open to critique, and you will look amazing.

Looks more aristo than lolita, if you were aiming for that. I was about to comment on the "blouse" but then- Is this a one piece? If it's a blouse+skirt I'd suggest finding another blouse instead, this one is baggy and not very flattering, and something about the neck (the collar? the jabot?) looks awkward but I can't quite pinpoint why, possibly because of the picture quality. There are plenty of blouses that can suit aristocrat, if you look.
Whether it's a skirt or OP, I suggest getting a bustier/waist cincher of some sort to cover up that elastic? at the waist, too.
I'd suggest something for your hairstyle or makeup but I can't really see what you did with those so I won't comment on them.

All in all I'd say it does look like a beginner coord, it does require some tweaks, but it's not bad for a first try.

Alright, thanks for the feedback. It is a skirt and blouse. Yeah it's more Aristo than straight Lolita. I guess it's pretty apparent that I am coming into Lolita from Goth. There are shoes under there, I promise.But the skirt is for people taller than me so even with heels, they're completely hidden. I'll be sure to lift my skirt a bit if I wear long ones in the future.

Or you could wear taller heels or platforms with it, pic related.

If your body isn’t too sensitive try taking birth control pills, keep track of your menstrual cycle, skip the placebo pills and just continue taking the actual bc pill to skip periods that would occur during cons. I have an IUD but since I still get periods I always ask my obgyn for a pack of bc pills to skip my period if I have a trip to go to.

Good for you. I think a lot of guys come on here and get interested since there's a lot of girls, which is nice to you guys. I don't blame you, it's nice to talk to the opposite gender sometimes--but sometimes it's too much. If you're picking up interests just to talk to girls on the internet, it's unhealthy. I hope you manage to do well with your fitness, work on yourself, and date a girl you love for more than just her clothes.

Ignore it.
It'll feel weird because it's your face in a ""public"" place, but ignore it. How many people are even looking at the Facebook page of a starting-out amateur photographer?

If you make a public post about it, you're giving him the attention he wants and stirring up drama (which is a bad look for working with future photographers).

You've already removed the tag, so that's the one identifying trackback feature for a third party. If you've commented in the album, it's your choice to decide whether you want to remove the comment (to further cut off your association with the bad photos) or leave it there.

Write the raw photos off as a loss. If all the photos you've gotten back from him are terrible, don't share any on your own social media. At this point, it sounds like the potential cosplayer-photog relationship has deteriorated down to a no-go. Wear the cosplay again to a future convention if you want more photos, and consider privately contacting other photogs for shoots of that outfit.

And some advice for future interactions of this ilk:
I've worked with photographers like this in the past - one notable incident happened at a local cosplay gathering. The photographer had me facing into the sun and then bumped the contrast so high that my face turned into an oversaturated pancake with slits for eyes.

I wrote a comment thanking him for taking the photos and made some remarks on how fun/graphic/cool the edits were. The photos are still in the album, but I removed every single one from my profile: Facebook has an option where you can prevent the photo from showing up on your personal timeline but leave your name tagged in the photo itself (understand this -- if a person is visiting a photog's page and sees a badly- and obviously-edited photo of a cosplayer, they'll recognize that it's the photographer's editing job and no fault of the subject)

That was two years ago. His portrait and con shoots in the last few months have shown a definite improvement in quality - good depth of field, use of studio lighting, capture of movement. This isn't an eroded relationship, and I would actually look forward to shooting with him again.

To expand on that more, I only see her because I run up to her workstation to pick a bit of mail up. I say hello and she's busy working. It's a shared space with other women, so I feel like I'd be a sperg just to try and start a conversation if she's busy with something else. On the other hand, I feel like just asking her to come with me somewhere, fucking anywhere, so I can actually talk to her at an appropriate time. I feel worried, because I don't feel like just saying "Would you be interested in going out to dinner", would do anything but cause her to reject me. I don't have an easy way to talk to her, but I don't want to be a loser and just give up without trying. I'm done with being the loser who just assumes that attractive girls are out of my league and never even tries to ask. That feels like what incels do, is just give up on themselves and cry about it online.

From the time I was a teenager I would fantasize about going to Japan and finding a cute boyfriend who likes anime tits and looks like a model and doesn't care that I'm a fujo who likes anime boys too
That dream eventually died and I realized I'd never get to go to Japan and that I should just go gay because there's no boy like that within my reach
So I only dated girls for a while but they all turned out crazy

I now have a bf who is part Asian and everything I've ever wanted but now I'm stumbling trying to get serious learning Japanese and I worry I'll make myself look like an idiot in front of him when we finally get to meet up
He knows I'm studying and it's not my native tongue but I still don't want to fuck up it would be too embarrassing

I'm attractive but I'm not confident due to a lifetime of trauma and because I was fat for a brie period of time as a teenager, due to being trapped in a place and forced to over eat
I lost it quickly and I am naturally small but those few months scarred my body image

He plans on going back to Japan when he's done here and taking me with him but I'm really scared of the culture shock
I hate America so I have no qualms about going
But I've never been out of the country before
I worry Japanese culture won't accept me
I catch myself worrying about it a lot and already feeling guilty if Im not able to make my own money
He says I won't have to contribute but I'd still feel guilty because I'm so used to having to provide for myself and take care of myself...even though I don't like having to take care of myself financially.
it's just what I'm used to.

It's hard to accept good things happening to me
It's hard to accept good things in my future when my life up until now has been so hard
But I don't want it to stay difficult

You won't get anywhere with that attitude. Let me give you some personal insight on the matter.

I've been with my wife for 10 years now. We met in high school, and I got her pregnant.
She is and always has been a lazy person and a shit cook. I wouldn't even mind eating shit food if she at least made it on time. But she rarely did.

We'd get into screaming arguments constantly about how lazy and worthless she was. I felt like an asshole for it, but goddamn she was a real piece of work. The only reason I dealt with all this was for the kids, and also because the sex is great.

But one night, I got fed up. Not only did she get drunk, neglect the kids, and made me top Ramen for dinner, but she decided to give me attitude too. She was being real fucking bitchy. So I told my grandparents to keep an eye on the kids and told my wife we were going to go out and have dinner together. I drove maybe 3 blocks to a quiet area (we live in Oregon, it's not hard to find a quiet field) and I got out of the car, went around like I was going to open her door for her and let her out, and I just beat the shit out of her while she was still seatbelted. After a few punches, I asked her if she wanted to go back to her parents. She started screaming and yelling and said yes, so I beat the shit out of her again. Then I asked her what she wanted to do. She finally got smart and said she wanted to go home. So I took her home and dared her to start trouble. I even handed her my cellphone and dialed her mom's number on the drive home. I made her talk to her mom, while daring her to fucking say something.

Before that incident, I had never laid a hand on her. But I had always threatened it. I told her "one of these days, if you don't straighten up, I'm going to lay hands on you."

All my meals have been on time, and she just recently tried to make a meatloaf. It was mediocre, but I was just thrilled that she tried.

Do with this information what you will.

"Male gaze" doesn't mean "men that look at us" lol, it means things that are generally considered appealing to men. Genuine lolita fashion generally doesn't appeal to men, while "sexy lolita", like the kind you see in anime etc., is specifically made to appeal to men's sexuality with shorter skirts, revealing tops, zettai ryouiki, and so on.

Assuming that anecdote is true and not something you pulled out of your ass (sorry anon but it sounds fake or at least exaggerated), that girl sounds incredibly insecure and it has nothing to do with you and how you looked at her.

while the non-sexual stuff makes me genuinely curious or at least did and that's why I stared at her, and yes I'm not bullshitting, it happened, we weren't even close to her or invading her space, I was just staring at her dress while sitting in a bench while she stood up talking with another girl a few meters away. and once she caught wind of it she started ranting lmao.

No one is claiming that lolita is never attractive to anyone though. No one said this, no one thinks this. What we are saying is that lolita is, in general, considered unappealing to men. And it's not made up, iirc there's an article about some "research" done on public opinion on lolita in which they placed a girl dressed in it at a train station, I believe? And then questioned men who has seen her on whether they found it attractive. Guess what? They did not.
And I can tell you from my own experience as someone who doesn't live in Japan and wears lolita often, that men not only don't flirt with me, most of them don't even approach me; when they do it's almost always just to ask why I'm dressed up, not because they think it's hot but because they're curious. Most of the compliments I get are from women, btw. Many other lolitas' experiences are the same.

I use it before doing a task, like if I'm drawing, exercising, doing chores. I have to tell myself "hey, you need to do this and you're going to take a dab and get it done" before I do anything because otherwise it won't get done. Weed slows me down, and even if my thoughts are still jumbled, I calm down and think it through a little more than if I wasn't high. I can't say this will work for everyone, but it's much easier to continue a task without distraction when I'm high and I really do hope it'll work for you too. Don't overdo it though, smoke a pea hitter or two before if you don't have a high tolerance and smoke a little as you need it thru the day if it's a longer task.

Honestly I take weed to go with me to work and take small smoke breaks throughout the night because I'm a baker and it helps me focus on the amount of garbage dough I have to work with. Also it's fun to bake and bake lololol

My week of feels:
Making some friends with very talented cosplayers and crafters, I'm always amazed with the work they put out and inspired to do my best.
Got a great paying job and great hours, so money to throw at lolita and cosplay but also time to enjoy it too.
Depression is lifting for the first time in years, I am a whole human being for once and buying items is no longer a way to fill an empty hole but a way to invest in myself.

But I've gained like 15 pounds since the last time I wore frilly shit, and I wasn't tiny before. I'm not overweight but still fat or at the very least chubby. I know some of the dresses will fit fine because their max is something like 110 bust, but I've been loath to try them on. I also don't wanna make a nice cosplay because I'd like to lose some more weight (i have lost 5 in the last 2 weeks, on average) and then lose weight and have it not fit. Something fancy can be taken in but most of the cosplays I want are a little more simple like street fashion (think persona styles).

Part of me wants to whine and part of me wants to make a decision. I feel like as long as the dress fits (REAL fits, not sausage in shirring), I can still wear it, but I'm not sure about cosplay. Has anyone else contended with this issue of weight change and cosplay?

As someone who lives and dates in Japan, I'm going to give you your reality check. I've met a lot of young women who moved here to be with their boyfriend thinking they could depend on them, but they break up in a few months and these women have to find jobs and apartments (which are crazy expensive) alone. Then they hop from Japanese guy to Japanese guy to try to find a new boyfriend to take care of them, but these men don't like desperate women. Don't do this. If you want to move here, study, get a job in Japan, and support yourself. You'll be happier.

>Good news
You should Skype with him and practice your Japanese. If you have a native speaker it's a great learning tool.

>Bad news
If this guy is half and was born or raised in Japan, definitely cut your loses. The ones that date foreign women only do so because Japanese women don't want them. The guys usually feel entitled to your time and body, even if you communicate what your boundaries are. Plus, you must have a legal visa to reside in Japan. If you don't have a university degree you probably won't be able to legally live there. If you don't have a job, who will pay for all your trips to cute cafes or shopping adventures? Don't expect him to. You're an adult, provide for yourself.

Japanese culture will never accept you if you look foreign. It doesn't matter how strong your Japanese is, people will still treat you like a tourist and men will still treat you like a trophy girlfriend.

NO ONE is saying men don't ever find us attractive. The problem I have is that there are people out there sexualizing a fashion that isn't sexual at all. You can find a lolita attractive- hell, you can find the fashion attractive. You don't choose what you find attractive. But when you invade our space either as a man who wears the fashion for sexual reasons or wants to fuck a lolita- you're a creep.
The only people who are getting angry about this are guys who i assume are creeping on Lolitas or people who don't understand "male gaze" isn't just staring at someone or having a crush on a lolita. If you're overtly going for girls who wear lolita and not just girls who you like, you're a creep.If this offends you, you need to step back and think about how you act around us.

Right but there isn't a strong set of interests associated with high heels. There is for lolita. Being a lolita almost always means having an interest in Japanese culture and media, because this is how they become exposed to the fashion. Having the dedication to daily lolita is a fairly large commitment, and it's reasonable to assume their adoption of the surrounding culture doesn't end there. Wearing lolita is communicating your interests the same as wearing a band t-shirt or any other niche alt-fashion, so it's strange to think those interested in it only have a sexual fetish for the frills.

>> No.9947572

>>9947553
I assume the reason why you're so sensitive about this is because you are one of those guys who shows up to meets and flirts with the girls there. Let me tell you this now- You're really creepy if you do this.
If a man who doesn't wear lolita is interested in lolita, but only in a passing light, that doesn't matter. However, when a man is attending meetups and going on facebook groups, that sends me red flags.
also "Wearing lolita is communicating your interests the same as wearing a band t-shirt or any other niche alt-fashion"
False equivalent. Wearing lolita is one aspect of japanese culture, sure. But it doesn't automatically mean the person cares about the surrounding culture in japan, it means they care about the clothes. The fashion. When someone wears a band tee, it communicates they like the band. Lets say someone says they like the shirt, because it's a band from the same genre they like, however they don't listen to or have any interest in listening to that band. does that mean they could hold up a conversation about that band? No, they can't. Does that mean, if they go to a show of that band, they'll be able to talk to the fans of that band about the band? no, they can't. Just like how, just because someone likes japanese culture, it doesn't make them completely okay at meetups and not seem completely out of place. It's fucking weird.

Thankfully no, but I could understand approaching someone wearing lolita the same way as someone wearing any other alt-fashion.

>But it doesn't automatically mean the person cares about the surrounding culture in japan
But that's what should be reasonable to assume, and I'd be right most of the time.

Hey anon, if you want to meet lolitas at an "open" space that isn't a meetup, and you don't see lolitas in public regularly - Go to a con, you'll most likely see some there.

Not true. Guys can wear ouji or aristo, and lolita too assuming they can pass, so they definitely can immerse themselves in the fashion and subculture - Assuming they have a genuine interest in it, and some do. The ones that are genuinely interested in the fashion are easy to spot because they look good; meanwhile there's an ouji who's quite infamous, rumored to be into the fashion just to score a qt lolita gf, and he looks grimy and disgusting regardless of how much brand he wears.

These days girls who dress up cutesy aren't really into Japanese culture/media anymore. Your hunting ground is actually populated with girls who saw some cute shit online and want to dress up in it. They aren't even looking to Japanese trends to see what's "in" anymore, why bother when your comm is local and doesn't follow Japanese trends anyway.

You think you're aiming for the place where the Japanese weebs gather, but in reality you're singling out the one population that's very likely to distance themselves from you because you won't shut up about the Japanese shit you watch and play, while all they want to do is buy Chinese shit and dress up. lol.

Only asking because when I first measured my shoulders I thought you were supposed to measure all the way out and was completely devastated about my apparently ridiculously broad shoulders, only to realize what an idiot I had been when I found a shoulder measuring guide

One of the weeby girls at my high school called the South Korean girl in my class an Asian slur (means "yellow", but I guess the English equivalent would be "chink" or "gook" or something), and when she rightfully got upset the weeby girl was like "well I didn't mean it in a BAD way, I think asians are actually better than people"

She was mad jelly she wasn't a kawaii Asian and I'm betting the people around you are too

Yeah, the stuff they say is in a similar vein, like comments about how stuff that would be ita on a white girl is cute on an Asian, etc.

Honestly I see a lot of it on here too, with people often making comments about uguu kawaii~~~ smol Asian sizing and even though it's not outright offensive like a slur would be, it still gives me a bad vibe. I'm not sure where it comes from exactly, do you think it's anything to do with the hate for Chinese lolitas, or just general weebiness?

I normally ignore it but it's hurtful when it comes from people I know irl.

I think some people just kind of have a weird inferiority complex or something, because the fashion originated in Japan and a lot of people got interested in the fashion from looking at Japanese street snaps and such. So it's like they're trying to live up to some "kawaii azn" ideal instead of just accepting that they look different (not necessarily better or worse, just different) and they get unnecessarily salty about it. If I were you I'd probably be snarky back at them, but I realize that's probably not the most diplomatic thing to do.

>>9947903
I didn't, that actually was what she said - because asians aren't people according to her I guess. We had a good laugh about it at her expense afterwards at least.

If my current approach keeps not working, I probably will just end up being snarky in response, yeah.

It's sad because there's plenty of white girls who look just as great in lolita, and who have even been picked to model in brand ads, so it's not like you even have to be Asian to be a legit lolita. It is influenced by European fashion, after all.

Blogpost, but I guess part of the reason I'm particularly upset about it is that an ex turned out to only be interested in me because of yellow fever. I'm not even Japanese or Korean, and I imagine they must have it even worse (especially since kpop is getting increasingly popular in the west these days).

Never knew there were so many spastic Lolita. Now I know who to avoid talking to fucking crazies turning a fashion into a hive mind cult of sorts .

Broke up with my cheating ex girlfriend last year.(cheated on me with a friend of mine when we both were at my place in-between a con) Been in shock ever since then.

Been talking to a girl that I liked since university. Been trying to hang out with her, but only a poorly planned cinema time together without a date was brought up. Met her yesterday at the same con I broke up with my ex.
Wanted to talk to her alone and confess my feelings, but she didn't have time cause she needed to head home after 1 event. Wrote to her today and confessed. Friendzoned like no tomorrow and the plan got canceled.
