Fucking agreed. I hate the number of people that shill Taobao brands as an easy way to get into lolita when they should be telling newbies to learn to save up so they can buy brand.
Taobao brands require you to pick and choose because each brand's quality and ita-ness (for a lack of a better word) varies so much between releases, so you at least need to have knowledge of how to make a good coord/what you look good in before you buy anything.

>> No.9953827

I can't stand it when people shit their pants about "looks like Taobao" being an insult. Taobao prints don't look like brand, and when brand looks like Taobao, it looks like shit. Cheaply made dresses with ugly Photoshop vector image prints on gradient backgrounds printed on chiffon just look bad. You can have a wardrobe full of dresses, but if they're all generic Taobao shit, then you might as well give up.

People like that can't coord for shit either. Ugh. Turns out that if you give itas more accessible dresses, they still won't know how to dress.

So AP has a refund/exchange policy on their receipts. Nyaaaart. I'm new, so I thought, hey what's the big deal. The thing I bought (but won't say here in case I get black listed from their store if they somehow, magically find out...) was defective anyway, so I had a right to return it. I live in Paris, so we have an AP store here. It wasn't some insane mailing back and forth game. I just walked back and was like excusez moi! I didn't even want to return it, but I just wanted the same thing, but not messed up. Is that too much to ask for?! So FORTY MINUTES LATER, after the person working there had to have a ten minute talk with the other sales person, who then had to call freakin' Japan HQ, who then had to take a photo of me with the thing on (guess my word wasn't good enough), then another ten minutes, of someone giving them the green light before I could exchange it.

Prices have gone up and restrictions on first-class have increased, especially with international postage. In addition to that, my local post office also loves to nitpick the dimensions and packing materials used on first-class packages. There are very few cases where I can safely use first-class for domestic packages.

If anything, paying $3-4 more for priority mail is worth it just for the convenience alone. I don't want to risk someone's package going missing/returned just because some postal employee decided to be an ass.

The flat rate boxes are a horrible deal. The small isn't so bad but the medium and especially large are stupid and people who use them are dumb and lazy.

Ok but you can get all the insurance and crap with shipping regular priority. The flat rate box is really just paying extra for "convenience" of not weighing it. You don't need a flat rate box to ship priority.

Really? I often hear people shitting on AP more than any other (japanese) brand, but maybe that's just a seagull thing. Baby is more consistent and has slightly better quality imo, as long as you're not bothered about the lining or lack thereof on their shirred pieces.

If you've been hearing people complain about taobao brand quality, it's probably warranted though, they're pretty hit or miss and you generally get what you pay for. Having said that, 300+ for each piece in your wardrobe is pretty steep though, for blouses and stuff it's worth buying brand, but you can get pretty good deals during the sale season. But then again I'm a Babyfag that buys mostly skirts because they don't get caught in customs.

nyart but if you weigh and ship a dress priority its usually $9-11, average dress is 1.5 ish lbs (on the light side) plus you have to use your own shipping supplies and extra time it ends up being the same for the medium box $13

I'm pretty good about getting people the cheapest shipping possible, it's just not the same situation for everyone.

If you live in a rowdy downtown area like I do, you can't count on packages not going missing from those dropoff boxes- it's happened to me before. I don't really have a choice but to get it picked up directly or dropping it off at the post office myself.

I buy a lot of more 'normie' Japanese brand clothing like Majestic Legon or INGNI and on JP secondhand sites you can easily find a like-new skirt from last season that originally sold for 5000 Yen for 900 Yen on there; domestic shipping included.

Baby uses signature confirmation, priority mail and ships in double-layer bubble mailer

Personally, I am pleased that both Baby and AP use priority 2 day for all items. The only times I've ever had USPS mail go missing were first class packages that went through Chicago (I don't live anywhere near Chicago, just saying that my priority packages always make it into my hands no matter what happens).

I'm happy to pay more to guarantee that USPS will prioritize the package. I just wish that Baby didn't add auto signature confirmation for small items. I really don't need to go to the post office to sign for my OTKs but whatever, the people at my PO are friendly at least.

If its a casual public meet (cafe, etc) then i couldn't give a shit who comes as long as they aren't public disgraces.

However I'm still salty about an event a while back which needed a certain number of tickets sold and we were encouraged to bring people to fill numbers, but they had to either be wearing lolita or aristo.

I can't see any problem with my groomed and clean (and good looking) boyfriend in a shirt and trousers for an event we need to fill up, and i can't imagine people having other lolita friends that aren't already part of the comm or wanting to dress up a friend, i personally wouldn't - so what gives? Either have an exclusive event or don't, you can't really be choosy in a situation like that.

This is normal. I heard more Japanese brands do this, even the ones in Japan have to call HQ and have proof. Refunding is rare. People tend to think about what they buy instead of being able to refund stuff because they didn't think if they really wanted it. And damaged goods (that aren't sold with damages listed) are actually reasonably rare. There is a reason there are strict policies on things like don't try to fit shit you clearly can't fit it.

It's the foreign stores fault for not handling those policies and caring for the items like intended, yet not checking the goods and just keep selling it. It generally works bad to use part of ones policy and part of one. Like, I get it, Westeners can be really annoying because they are used to customer is king and it's often so much more easy to not follow policies and be nice, but you know you have to follow the Japanese policies on returns and such so it's imho better to explain others it's a Japanese concern and they have to follow those policies.

Honestly, as a Westener I prefer the Japanese policies. I feel many Westeners don't think enough before buying because they are spoiled with too much policies in their favour. I also feel that's why they get mad so easily at store clerks and why they are annoyed that easily when policies are followed instead of just accepting it and not worry too much. They are used to get whatever they want. Not just clothes, but buying stuff in general. Everything and everyone has to take them as buyer into account, but never the other way around. I feel the current attitude in Westerner buyers is shitty in general.

only for crappy ones. The good brands generally cost around 80 euro, up to 150 for more complex or limited designs. Sometimes you're lucky, but you shouldn't expect proper quality for 50 bucks. Altrough I feel that's part of the TaoBao problem. People look at price and if it's cute (or even edgy "look I'm so different") and not check quality, cut, etc.

She starts her story with saying that she knows a bit or two about lolita fashion brands and their prices. She wants to buy an AP dress. Finds super nice lacy one with matching bonnet that is obvious much more detailed and special than the rest.

Can't read a price tag despite having a friend who speaks Japanese and checking 5 times and her credit card not accepting so she needed to pay with another card. Somehow nothing made her think the MTO limited edition dress (that apparently got sold in store for some reason) was NOT 150USD despite her claim of knowing usual pricing.

Then got mad and made drama for days to AP Japan store, having some Japanese she was working with bother AP and explain, they said no refund, so she decided to walk buy and make drama in-store for hours until they would give her money back just to be rid of her.

After that she had the audacity to say AP must have been doing horrible, and got mad at them for not refunding because she's an idiot and upset they didn't like her after making drama in-store for hours. Played huge victim role.

Similarly, I liked deepstalker and last week lolita news. But I haven't found much other lolita videos I actually liked.

I once posted a few replica's dracula clothing made from Japanese brand. People wanted to argue a literal copy from a H. Naoto skirt wasn't a replica because it was such a "generic design" (literally any detail was copied beside the embroidery (each ruffle placement, lace placement), and it's a design H. Naoto has been making as signature shape with different materials since they exist. This one even copied the materials (but with cheap versions) and colours. Having many brand replicate you doesn't make it more generic). The skirt was as ungeneric as non-printed items go. High waisted corset skirt, longer back than front, fake bustled back, tons of detailing in lace placement.

Dracula Clothing is know to copy cat things. Not only did people deny it, they even said the Dracula Clothing one was better quality wise as well as design wise.

Similar thing happened with a jacket that both hottopic and EMP mailorder have copied.

I know it isn't illigal. But to say it's not a replica at all is just dumb. Even worse when people would argue the cheap replica had better quality. One person argued the H.

I wear tights because I simply dislike wearing socks in lolita beside ankle socks. I don't mean I dislike how it looks, but it's not nearly as comfortable for me for multiple reasons. Not to forget that being tall means all brand socks end too low.

I did wish people would choose better tights tho. Not these synthetic nylons. Get some that are of the same materials as woven socks, and if you want designs, those who have them woven into them. I hate these easily streched (and then look more transparent) nylons people wear. Quality should still be hold high. There might be some higher quality nylons, but they are more costly, and I rarely see people wear those.

Hate to say it, but I haven't seen a guy that wasn't Asian look good. But I think it has more to do with it being much harder to see the difference in gender with Asians than with us. Easier to pass when they wear a wig and girly make-up.

It's not fetishizing. I don't even like how most Asians guys look and I don't fall on girls. But it's just like how many typical East-Asian features are ones that are deemed cute (talking about facial features that are common). Any race can wear it, but when your race generally has more physical features that fit with it, it's a higher change it'll look good on you because the change it fit's your face and body is bigger. Not saying one race always looks better or that other races will look bad, but some races have an advancement in certain styles because the common features most people in said race have fit well with it.

It works contrary too. I think many Asians don't look nearly as good in "tough" looking styles. Give them biker clothes and they never look as tough as Western biker gangs.

There are always exceptions ofcourse. But based on common features in each race, Asian guys have it much more easy to look good in lolita dresses. Would love to be shown non-Asian guys looking good. But there is a reason it's much harder to find than other Asian ones.

He looked nicely dressed, but still looked like a well dressed woman with ugly face, but that knew how to make the best of it in terms of look.

I that's kinda the point. No matter how well they dress, they never look as good. They facial features are just not as delicate and feminine as the overall look. Asian brolita's have been known to look overall good. If you're used to seeing Asians, you can spot a man from a woman most of the time, even when they wear girly make-up and a wig. But their faces are still much softer making it look better.

Occasionally I read the comments and some comments are really, let's say odd.
They're like "Brands can such my dick" or "Tattoos go fine with lolita, haters gonna hate!". And every fucking time I click on the profile of these weird people they are not even lolita, and most of the time they are sissies or dudes.

Now also on the tread about stretched ears. Everyone is just like "if others don't like them, fuck them. Do what you want". Like, sure, be yourself. But let's keep it noted that one should still look good in a fashion and in general needs to fit the aesthetic or there will be backlash. These comments seems to encourage people to be bad. You can only ignore the rules if you can make a good lolita coord without thinking about those rules. But then you follow them 99% of the time automatic...

I think that's the problem with your comm meet planning though.

Ticketed should mean just pay in advance. That actually helps the host out a lot too, so that we know how many people are actually going, don't have to deal with split checks and cheapos not paying or not tipping, reserving space for double the amount of people that actually show up.

A $30 per ticket meet would be a standard restaraunt. or tea house, or event admission price + a bit of food.

You can even do ticketed meets for like $7 to a museum. You have an organized list of attendees and you will probably get a group rate.

I wish fairy kei had a more strict community like lolita, but overtime the lines really became unclear. Also I really think most of the "demiboys" in the fashion look horrible. I don't understand why so many are attracted to it.

Perhaps not an unpopular opinion here, but I think being a "trans male" but also wearing lolita is stupid, and I can't help but feel like people who do it are latching onto trends for the sake of being as unique as possible. denying clothes is gendered is just insanity. I can't understand how someone could wear lolita fashion--an extremely feminine fashion-- and try to say they are a man and want to be taken seriously. Just wear ouji or something.

Stores who specialise in legwear, and brands who specialise in legwear or under garments (not as in underwear, but the clothes you wear underneath the showing clothes to make sure it all fit's nice and such. They make tubetups, tanktops, tights, etc.). They can be a bit hard to find, especially when it's not winter.

You can find some brands by googling. Also try some local stores. Especially ones grannies go to. They tend to like these ones under long dresses or underneath normal clothes, because cotton absorbed sweat, can give some stability, and tends to not rip as easily (and even can be sewn if it would rip somehow).

Do expect to pay around 30 euro a pair, unless you find a good deal. But it's worth it. There are some plain ones, with motives sewn into it (just shapes in thickness, just loke how brocade is one fabric but with shapes. It's not brocade but I just mean to explain it's shapes from the same fabric? Not good at explaining it). Some also have motives woven into the fabric itself.

In my country they differentiate these by calling them maillot while calling the synthetic ones panties (that's not a word for underwear in my native language). They are indeed more common for children, but there are some brands who specialise in adult ones as well. I tend to just check multiple shops, if it's an online shop, I check the material and photo's mainly.

I hate how sterile the fashion has become. I was looking at old street snaps and GLBs and I noticed a lot more weird angles, lingerie, "edgy" accessories and other stuff that would make typical gull scream bloody murder now.
Thanks to certain individuals, now posing with a plushie or a doll is unacceptable, if someone can see your knee you are sexsualizing the fashion, and don't even try to mention that ero lolita exists.
I'm tired of people trying to act like lolita is this sacred asexual fashion, and they are a pure maiden uwu. You aren't helping anyone calling someone names just cause they look slightly out of norm. Not saying that we should all start flashing people in public and use bondage wear in every outfit, but maybe strike somewhat of a balance.

Other salt is gulls using stuff like "shoes are too old-school for this coord". If a coord is unbalanced because of them, yeah I agree, but most of the time is just complaining about two eras that somehow shouldn't be mixed. It doesn't make any sense to me personally, nor does it in the context of lolita fashion as a whole.

Honestly, I think people who are hypercritical of things like socks being short or stuffed animals are new. When people preach rules too hard over nitpicks or call someone ita over something small, I think they're trying to compensate for the fact that they're also not very good at the fashion/knowledgeable about it. I did that when I was new, too, because it made me feel better about my mistakes by pointing out everyone elses. The fashion has changed a lot-certain "rules" have changed as the western community grew, and I think people started making up rules that are only withheld within our community.

Ero's kinda a mixed bag for me. I do like the style, but it's really easy to look ita as hell. I've seen a lot of really good ero coordinates with AB though.

Well people are allowed to have their own opinion about fashion, what may not bother you, may bother someone else, and in regards to ero, ero is not an excuse to over sexualize a lolita outfit, espically because one of the core values of lolita imo is the fact that it is a more conservative fashion and it's not suppose to be seen as sexy, and as a community we actively have to work against people thinking that lolita is a fetish, and especially because lolita often attracts unwanted attention from fetish groups. Ero is a fine line, and I think it's more of a fear of confirming the idea that wearing lolita is a fetish.

But I agree with your second point about era mixing, like I don't have a problem with mixing old school or new school lolita, but again it's a personal taste thing.

Had a horrible spiked up wig with white streaks going through, literally came with fucking false fangs, had a cane that looked like plastic with a stupid ass bat on it, cape that dragged an entire 5 inches on the ground as he walked, etc. Was fucking terrible. Everyone was well dressed and then this fuck is just with us in his shitty umbrella (not even parasol) drew all the attention of giggling pedestrians onto us.

I think ero is fine depending on where you are. Ero was invented for lolitas to go clubbing, and wanted to wear less for sweating/dancing purposes. I feel like attending a meet in ero is a bit silly given the context, but for a party or something, it's not a big deal. I agree that it's a bit...unconventional, though, and I don't think it really falls under the guise of traditional lolita, I also think it could lead to negative stereotypes. If a normie meets 100 lolitas, and one has a bdsm/sex thing going on, that will define all lolitas to them because it reaffirms the normie idea that it's a sex thing. So perhaps calling it ero gothic instead with them, and still calling it lolita online, would be fine.
I should add that ero kinda got screwed in the western community too. ero is just an excuse for goths to call their shit lolita, and itas to justify wearing short punk ebay skirts.

it helps to minimize returns by listing measurements of garments, which japanese retailers often do but american retailers don't do. lots of people order two or even three sizes of clothing in america because the 2/4/6 or god forbid the S/M/L sizing conventions are essentially meaningless other than representing a point on a sliding scale.

>when people treat lolita as a tacky costume

I hate coords like this, with tons of costumey cheap looking accessories. Especially golden stuff. The qualities requirements are way higher in order to make an elaborate piece to work. A crown can look fine, but it has to be of way higher quality than lets say, a beret to look good. A coord with a bodyline solid and simple accessories would look 10x better than this, even if she is wearing a brand mainpiece.

It really grinds my gears that brands are making dresses/blouses almost exclusively out of chiffon/satin/synthetic garbage and charging the same price they would for a cotton garment. First of all, it's hot in the summer, and sweating through everything that I would otherwise be comfortable in had it been made out of a natural materials is aggrevating. Secondly, the price of some of these things - Where's the trim? The lace? The things that made something worth $300 instead of just slapping a print on basically weaved plastic and calling it a day? (Don't even get be started on that fucking JetJ butterfly dress - unless that thing was made of actual silk chiffon, which I've found no evidence to suggest it is). I'm not saying all brands do this or even do this all the time, but it's a trend that's been happening for a while and it's irritating to sit back and watch.

Should have told her to pay extra as soon as you saw the address and even then you're nice because you have all right to not sell at all and just resend the money minus fees (you shouldn't loose on it).

If you had it listed without a USA buyers only notion, you should have asked her where she lived so you could quote her correctly. In that case it's your own fault and you should pay imho, because you're too stupid to realise international listings could be bought international which means more expansive shipping.

>While it is difficult to pinpoint the origins of Lolita specifically, it is well-known within the Lolita community (which certainly varies in terms of styles and types) that Lolita as a subculture is taken on without the intention of attracting the mature male gaze. Individuals who take on Lolita are usually young women, probably between the ages of 18 and 30, who have a genuine interest in cute things, frilly underskirts, and platform Mary-Janes. This adaptation of innocence and extreme femininity can, perhaps, be seen as a way of taking back their sexuality from men, rather than pandering to it; they are not interested in meeting up with a female sexual ideal, but would rather hold on to their youth and their freedom.

Also, fashion is dominated by men. Why? Because men know what they want to see on a woman, and most women are trying to attract men, thus you have fashion catering to appealing to men in all departments. Yes, even lolita because its inspired by fashion men made in Victorian ages/ect. Fashion is dominated by men since its history.

I always find it funny when DDLG fans call themselves "Dolores" or "lolita". Completely missing the point of the book, which is supposed to be about how people can be manipulated by language.

No one is saying it is. And no one got into fetishizing lolita because of a erotic ddlg novel called "Lolita". That is just stupid anon. I have literally never heard of this novel until this thread. They get into this for fetish reasons because they are into DDLG to begin with, "Lolita" didn't introduce them to this fetish or fashion(most of them for sure), the fetish existed before that novel, before that fashion. And now that fetish is deeply rooted into this fashion because of the themes of the fashion(women dressed in what is essentially fancy little girl dresses having a tea party is what most people picture when they think lolita) is highly attractive to those fetish freaks.

They don't design lolita clothes, almost all lolita designers are women. Lolitas designs are based off many kids clothing designers from the west, because the women of that time did not want to "grow up" and have to marry and raise kids-escape from their male dominated working society. Are kids clothes designed to be sexy to men? no, that's part of why they based the clothes around that.
