I'd rather not use the internet. I just wrnt without it for a month because of a move, and while it was hard, it was doable. I wouldn't wanna ruin an event I've been looking forward to for that long.

Would you rather
>wear a party storw quality wig for a cosplay, because a better one just isn't possiblr in time
>Wear your natural hair with a cosplay, while it obviously doesn't match
No internet definitely. Because after a month I can go on a spree with the money I saved. Gaining weight takes much longer to undo so no thanks
No internet, cheerfully!

Would you rather:
>Have every coveted print available in your least favourite style?
>Have a beautiful wardrobe of your favourite style, but it's all handmade by your most hated famewhore?

Man I remember that blog collective. Sweet memories
it makes me so sad that lolita blogging seems to be dying. I don't quite understand why. normie fashion blogs don't seem to have an issue integrating with modern social media, why can't lolita make it work?
I think that people are simply losing interest in it. The most well known bloggers (F Yeah Lolita, Parfait Doll, etc.) update sparsely or haven't updated at all in a very long time, and the smaller bloggers either don't provide content that hasn't been covered before or are not well known enough to garner a lot of interest.
It's too bad, really, I do enjoy following blogs about the fashion and reading what people have to say about it.

Photos, nostalgia, old school and mostly quotes!

At what point does a personal style of one person become a Kei? Is there a certain degree of saturation in public consciousness, a certain amount of "copy cats" or what? Is there even a way to define or quantify when this happens?

As far as I can gleam; Kei roughly translates to the international as "style category". A way to file people's general look together so it's easier to search for, track and shop for. Certain looks like "Larme Kei" seem like they might or might not really count; so where is the line?
29 replies and 2 images submitted. Click here to view.
needs to start in Japan to get the -kei suffix
needs to have a name
needs to have defined rules and/or aesthetics
needs to be worn regularly by at least 10 other people
Does it matter if the trend is "artificial" or not? There was some evidence in the Genderless Kei thread that the trend was engineered on purpose to promote an art book and boy band. It then took off on the streets, but it's origins weren't "organic".
You can use kei for things other than fashion styles, so just because something is ''a kei'' doesn't make it a fashion style. It's sometimes used to describe a trend, it can be used as a promo/buzz word to promote something, music styles can be ''a kei'' (tanbi kei, oshare kei etc). There may be other uses but I don't speak Japanese.

Outfits that are bad, but not necessarily Ita.

something about a coord is rubbing you the wrong way? found a coord that follows all the rules of lolita but still looks like shit? Unsure if something is ita but it still rustles your petticoat?

Probably extra salty since CDC is one of my dream dresses, but here we go.

Blouse neck straps are twisted. Would have looked better in longsleeve if they were showcasing the colours in the dress. As it stands, looks out of place. Hairbow is the wrong shade of navy (*autism*) and is not as ornate as the dress.

This could go really well with a better headpiece (with gold accents and maybe some dokidoki star accessories or something similar), a longer blouse and perhaps a more formal hairstyle.

I was talking to my friend about how bad she looked and then she came up to talk to us. I don't think I've ever felt so awkward.

The print looked really faded so I thought it was a replica but then she said she got it in closet child? But she also said she coorded with all black because that's what she had. She then tried to justify the black by saying it matched the navy in the print.
saw this girl at japan matsuri, it really is obvious how much of a replica that dress is. You can clock it a mile away.
1 - better petticoat
2 - coording it with black was a bold move, and might work if there was any black (and yes, she was wearing black, not navy) in the print, but there isn't, so it doesn't really look cohesive as a coord. Coording it with white would have been better, with printed otks or tights. It was pretty warm that day, she could have gone with ankle socks.

Why are fursuits so expensive, and why does spray-on-foam never get involved in construction?

Also, I'm surprised there's nothing fursuit related in the catalog.
Are fursuit threads allowed?
28 replies and 5 images submitted. Click here to view.
>spray on foam
Like the construction foam that expands? That shit is fragile.
>nothing fursuit related
There were a few threads recently but the same old "ew furries" thing is still a thing.

Are these threads allowed? I guess, as long as you can keep it on topic, like talk about construction, tutorials, posting neat suits etc. Anything cosplay-related.
Will people generally like it? No.
Darn, I assumed construction foam was rubbery in texture.
It'd be pretty neat if you could make a fursuit by sticking fur to your skin with something, cutting it off, then holding it together with magnets.
Although magnets really wouldn't make it tight enough.
>Why are fursuits so expensive
Because fur is expensive. It is 2 to 10 times more expensive than regular fabric. They are also usually unique, meaning more craftsmanship has to go in them, so more time, and more money.

>Are fursuit threads allowed?
Yes, but probably not your image since this is a christian board.

As vograce has gotten more and more popular, I'm starting to hear more less than stellar reviews.

How is chillypig lately? I havent heard the best about them but I bought an AA artists charms that I really liked, and asked them politely about their manufacturer. They said chillypig and I was quite impressed with the quality especially after negative things I had heard about them.

Also their sticker sheets interest me since I've really wanted to do those and the pricing seems OK to me. Any experience?
