Question to lolitas who has a lot of variations of same thing or same print in few colors: don't you get bored wearing basically the same item? I don't understand how does it work for real people, it feels like they only hoard collestions like this to make impressive wardrobe pics.

>don't you get bored wearing basically the same item?
No. I own several colorways of certain pieces because I like to wear them and want to have a variety of colors to wear in different ways. It's really not that strange.

>> No.9960331

>>9960309
Yes, Id o, or rather I did. I used to own many colorways of the same print, but I always had one I liked best and only wore that. Now I have a rule to stick to your favourite one, no matter how pretty the other ones are.
Like, I'm really conflicted which ones to buy from AP's new Halloween dresses and this gives me a major headache.

>> No.9960338

It depends, I personally don't like having the same print in a different colorway, but more so because I'm goth and I wear black even when I'm not wearing lolita, but I don't think it's weird to own multiples of the same print, like think of it in normie terms, some people have a certain cut of t-shirt they like so they'll buy it in a different color

>> No.9960343

This is different, though. This is a row of cute accessories that're perfect for a lot of different lolita coords. Having them in a rainbow of colours simply means that no matter what colour dress arrives in your mail tomorrow, you're gonna have an usa/kumakumya that matches it. Sweet dress? pink usa. Brown dress? brown kuma. Oh this brown blends in, take the other brown one. Moitie dress? Black usa with blue eyes. Atelier Pierrot striped dress? black usa with striped ribbons. You practically never have to worry what bag you're gonna carry, it's gonna be a kumya bag, just chose the right colour.

I've seen someone do this with the Milk heart-shaped bags and someone else who had an impressive collection of tea party-style shoes in a full rainbow pastel. If you wear a lot of different styles and colours you're gonna end up with a lot of different bags and shoes anyway, so if you like the usa/kuma bears then why not collect them in every colour?

The design of the skirt isn't bad, it would've looked fine if it was solid (albeit a bit plain); it's the print that's hideous. It's not a border print if the main motifs go in the middle of the skirt, either. Might have not been so awful if the lineart wasn't so bold and dark, and if the bottom of the print matched the striped top. Those beige hearts at the bottom are very, very ugly regardless of their position in the print; if it was supposed to look like an ice cream cone then the execution is terrible.

The black outline really kills the print. But part of me believes that if instead of the beige heart disaster for the ruffle to be replaced with the striping part on the top half would make it look a little better? Maybe even a thin soft lace on the hem and part where the ruffle hits the skirt.

No, the more colors of a cut I really love, the better. That means I can coord it with more items.
Though it can escalate into collector territory quick. For example, I sold a dress a while ago because the color wasn't really my thing and I prefered the other two colorways. Now due some kind of miracle I got the other two colorways but crave the one I sold before because it would complete the set. It's stupid and I most likely won't buy it again, but the feel is there.

I just got my grail dress (Melody Doll) from Y! Auctions but it's really in need of some TLC. It says dry clean only but I'm so terrified of getting it fucked up. I always hear horror stories about dry cleaners. Has anyone had experiences with this print? It's 70% polyester/30% rayon. I would just use Dryel but it has velvet for the bows and Dryel isn't supposed to be used on that.

I've also never been to a dry cleaner, so if anyone could tell me how best to approach them about my concerns I'd be super grateful.

You can always take it to the dry cleaners and ask them questions before handing over your dress. Ask them how they think it should be treated. Polyester is machine washable, but rayon could shrink or bleed dye. If the entire print is screen printed, you might be safe with hand washing, but you'd still want to be careful as rayon is the less durable fabric. You also might want to remove the velvet bows and do a separate test on one to make sure the velvet is water safe.

>> No.9961270

>>9961268
Yeah, I was wondering how appropriate it was to go and actually have an involved conversation with the dry cleaner about it. Like I said, I've never been to one. I'll talk to them about it on Monday. The bows and waistband are all velvet and all attached, but I am willing to remove all of it if it means I can get this thing restored to something approximating its former glory. Sew it all back on afterwards.

What are some common outfit styles, colors, themes etc that you guys find lead to more or less dumb normie comments?
I've noticed for sure that wearing lots of pink leads to "what's the event," "what character are you" type unwanted comments. Black gets "cool outfit" or ignored. Sometimes brown or navy.
Other colors I don't really know about. I'm sure a lot of this is obvious but sometimes I'm surprised at what gets positive normie reactions.

>> No.9961550

>>9961547
Your experience is similar to mine, probably because pink and other pastels aren't really common colors for people to wear as an entire outfit, plus the fact lolita as a fashion doesn't look like anything people normally wear, so those two together are likely too outlandish for normies to perceive as "just an outfit", if that makes sense; whereas black is a common color for people to wear, and an outlandish outfit in black will often get you mistaken for a goth. Many people do know what goth is so they're more inclined to recognize it as an alternative fashion style of some sort; unless they're the kind of person who sees anything out of the norm as weird, but they don't really count.
I find that lolita in solid grey gets a lot of positive reactions, people often associate it with old timey movies in my experience.

Why should I? Just because I have kids doesn’t mean I have to give up the fashion. When they are older and they want to dress it with us, we will let them get into it. Both our parents even offered to watch them if we want to go to a meet. My wife and I don’t beleive that bringing our children to a meet is right so we will get them to Grandma so we can have some time to our selves.

>I want to know when is too old to stop wearing lolita
That answer is simple. Never. There isn’t an age limit on fashion. I don’t dress for others approvals. I dress because I like to. If others approve it’s nice and welcomed. If others don’t. Well okay but that won’t stop me from wearing it.

It's probably fine and pretty enough as a dress itself, but I'm irrationally upset with this as I love Sailor Moon, especially Serenity's dress and it's a very pale imitation. Literally wouldn't even look like Serenity's dress if it wasn't for the circles on the top. They didn't even try to make the shoulder puffs even slightly resemble the original. There's no details tying it to Serenity other than it being white, high waisted, and the circles.

I know it's not supposed to be an exact copy like cosplay, rather an adaptation, but I feel like they could have tried a lot harder to make something prettier and ethereal. And I also know Serenity's is based on another designer dress, but I just still feel like this is very boring and watered down.

Guess I’m in the minority for liking this. At least it’s better than the Secret Honey version, and for once, appropriate use of chiffon on a longer length dress. Only problems are the sizing and the $$$, I expect this won’t be cheap.

I think the issue with Serenity’s dress is that it was always too much of a ripoff to the original designer dress. Too close of an adaptation and it might come across as a knockoff of the original designer dress, and then it’d be “fun” to have to explain that you’re more or less wearing a cosplay (but not actually in cosplay, lolita is not cosplay) of a magical princess character who wears a ripoff of some designer dress as her fantasy princess dress. That’s…. kind of its own level of escapist fantasy otaku cringe combined with some replica-wearer shame.

At least with the btssb interpretation it actually looks more like one of btssb’s MTO dresses while being recogniseably Serenity, so it’s obvious that you like it because you like lolita and you like Sailormoon, and not because you’re too young and too poor to have ever owned the original designer dress.

Gulls, I have a question regarding defect dresses:

I just got home a dress I bought from a seller on LM, when I unpacked it I realized it has a pretty huge spot on the front that wasn't visible in the seller's picture (it could have gotten there while she packed it, idk), and the promised headdress is nowhere in sight.

I have messaged her with a picture of the spot, but I'm kind of nervous because it's the first time this happened and I don't know how sellers usually react to these situations. Do any of you have any experience with this? I know it might be a stupid question, and it's not like I'm afraid of confrontation but still... she's been an excellent seller otherwise, very kind and patient, but it's hard to know how people are going to react when confronted by issues like this.

So here’s a relatively stupid question. Is there a slice of life anime about a girl who’s just normal and a Lolita? Maybe her friends make fun of her. Maybe she gets in trouble with her family. She’s not not a Magical girl, she’s not in a magic war, and her mysterious boyfriend isn’t a demon King. She’s just a chick who likes to dress up. If there can be a really anime about a girl who just really, really, really loves ramen and nothing else for 14 episodes, there’s gotta be something about this huge subculture right? I tried to find something on MAL but all the pages google pulls up have been removed or they just say that there’s one character that IS a Lolita, etc.

I agree, I just think that it's beating a dead horse, there is no way to make people stop being dumbasses who don't actually care about the fashion, especially a community that attracts a large amount of people who just want to be special and think wearing frilly dresses makes them interesting, also it's this idea that fashion has "nO RuLeZ", when that's not true, even eclectic fashion has rules.

No, the more colors of a cut I really love, the better. That means I can coord it with more items.
Though it can escalate into collector territory quick. For example, I sold a dress a while ago because the color wasn't really my thing and I prefered the other two colorways. Now due some kind of miracle I got the other two colorways but crave the one I sold before because it would complete the set. It's stupid and I most likely won't buy it again, but the feel is there.

I just got my grail dress (Melody Doll) from Y! Auctions but it's really in need of some TLC. It says dry clean only but I'm so terrified of getting it fucked up. I always hear horror stories about dry cleaners. Has anyone had experiences with this print? It's 70% polyester/30% rayon. I would just use Dryel but it has velvet for the bows and Dryel isn't supposed to beut my concerns I'd be super grateful.

It is, but it originally mean a monstrous dress with bad lace, not just a dress with too much lace.

I don't think you can insult a lolita dress for having too much lace. Maybe insult it for being too high contrast, being oddly balanced, or strangely shaped, but too much lace is kinda weird for a fashion so focused on being too feminine.

>> No.9963069

It's posted in Rufflechat, not CoF, so I guess it might be a reaction towards newbies who want spoonfeeding. That can have a very real consequence because FB's algorithm sucks pretty hard -- imagine you comment or give advice on a couple of newbie things once or twice and suddenly FB's algorithm decides you like interacting with anything from Rufflechat or Cof that involves a question. Now your entire feed becomes inane newbie questions that you answer over and over again. Yikes.

I mean partly it's that FB's algo sucks, but that means this person's experience might be that she's seeing way too many newbie dumbassery on her feed and it's getting to her.

Yes, but again, FB's algorithm. If you interact with something you dislike even just out of pity, FB can't tell the difference, it decides that you like interacting with it and now shoves every instance of it at you. She could very well be looking at a very different feed than yours, which might be why she's fed up and you're not.

I mean, it doesn't really excuse her post, and honestly most people simply come here to let off steam rather than vent it on FB (which again, with that algorithm means a lot of people will see that before they see any other of her saner posts, so that's extra double stupid on her part) -- but I can see how she might just be living a different reality (literally) and getting fed up. Honestly I'd just start hiding posts and unfollowing but from what I gather most people don't bother doing that.

Most fully shirred skirts and shirred Meta should be good.

Why are some lolitas so disgusting... I bought an old school dress and the seller threw in an old school baby blouse for free since it was "too stained to be sold and matched the dress". she said that the stains wouldn't come out but thought I might want to give it a shot. Well, it looked pretty okay other than the torchon lace around the neck and sleeves. the previous white lace was pretty yellow... more like meta's "antique white" color. Was going to get some oxiclean and try my best but decided to throw it in the wash and see what happened. One wash (with just normal laundry soap) and the lace was nearly back to white... washed a second time with just water and the lace is white. I... I am at a loss of words. Just wash your fucking dresses, seriously. lol

I feel you anon. Some 4-5 years ago, when the Sailor Moon revival really got going, I contacted a shopping service and asked them to reserve me a space for a major brand Sailor Moon release. They actually agreed (I thought it would come out a lot sooner, obviously). I even asked them a year or two later if they'd still honor it.
It's been another couple of years so I kind of doubt they would, but it doesn't matter, these look like hot garbage. The AatP one is VERY OKAY, but the model looks stupid in it so I'm not going to bother. There's so much more they could have done, especially for the 70000 yen price tag. They didn't even try. The designers aren't Sailor Moon fans maybe?

I've been wondering for awhile how easy it would be to clean one of those ***STAINED*** items Wunderwelt dumps on the Western community on lace market. I suspect it's a similar story to this.

There's a member of the lolita Amino that regularly buys stained shit from WW on Lacemarket and documents her adventures in restoring them. She shares all her techniques and "recipes" for cleaning products.

LA is full of cancer but her posts are absolute treasures.

Wow, that's an amazing improvement. Twinkle Ornament is velveteen but is the design screen printed? I'm wondering if those detergents/chemicals would also work with a piece that I own (not that I plan on staining it).

Ohhh this makes me super tempted to buy some cheaper stained items and see if I can restore them too. I'd probably just do it for funsies and sell them for what I paid for them.

Agree so much. I don't understand people who make no attempt to clean their clothes, it's disgusting. I mean, I was raised by a SAHM who was a complete trainwreck, but I figured household stuff out on my own as soon as I escaped from her harpy clutches. I love laundry, I have a fancy machine with four different temperature settings, and I can wash pretty much anything. Latest experiment: getting a stain out of a silk obi. Stain came out with a stain remover in cold water, obi was floppy after the wash, ironed it and it's nice and stiff again, good as new. I have a shark steamer for wool items and other stuff that can't go in the washer.

tl;dr: if your shit is disgusting, don't send it to people, why the fuck would you send your BO, skin flakes, and whatever else comes off your body to people in the mail and hope they're happy? That's worse than being raised in a barn, that points to being raised in a portapotty.

I was already irritated by their fat ass catering, not the selling of large sizes, but how they allowed fats to harass fit girls in the same dresses on their social media, making fun of them for lack of "curves" (bitch, a curve is a dip in your waist, if you have a fupa you are a sphere), and I cut the cord when they sold to walmart. A corporation that doesn't pay its staff a living wage isn't exactly a good match for modcloth that tried to look like an SJW outfit. Their thin veneer of moral stand-uppishness when they're just more capitalist pigs gagging for the fat dollar.

I've seen t pop up second hand in a different cut. In fact, one of them was on yahoo auction for more than I was willing to pay just yesterday. So yeah, I am vaguely aware that it was released earlier, but does everyone have to display all that maniacal knowledge every time they make a comment on a thibetan cord gnawing forum?

I love the lace, but the ribbons always look so cheap.

Unless they have Prader Willi or another very serious, debilitating and rare disease, losing weight is less effort (less eating), less time investment (less eating), and cheaper (less spending money on food), than staying fat or getting fatter. For people who call themselves normal and healthy, there is no excuse.

Lolita requires dedication. Pride, not gluttony and sloth.

Life is a role of the dice. People with severe dwarfism will also have a hard time in fashion subcultures. Stop whining. If you're too fat instead of too tall or too ugly, you only have yourself to blame.

This is cute and I'd get one if they had normal sized ones. It's shitty because I'm on the higher end of small japanese sized clothing (I'm tall so bigger all around but not fat) but these plus sized things are just way too big.

Not sure about this specific dress, but Maxicimam does normal sizes (although fairly generous, like Meta). This is from Maxicimam Lovely, which is their actual plus sized line. Not all pieces will have the full size range, but most do.
