Salty you weren't asked to join? All these photos were submitted by each lolita themselves. A Japanese lolita sought out international lolitas though online comms and asked them if they would like to participate in the book, over a year ago. Get your facts straight.
>>8811181 Kind of embarrassed since half of the coords on the front cover aren't very good. Or at the least, eye-catching as cover photos should be. Kind of makes it look like some lolitas asked to be added on haha.
I've been dying my hair black for the past ~6 months. Now I want to put some very small, sparsely scattered white streaks in it (and maybe a chunk in my bangs. Damn it, Rinrindoll.)
The most that any part of my hair has been dyed black is 3 times. I'm wondering if I should try to do "colour stripper foils" in the areas that I want to lighten first, to lessen the damage? Is it even worth the effort?
>I'd really appreciate recommendations for colour strippers.
Idk, anon. I have reddish/brown hair and last time I tried to add white streaks I had a really hard time getting the brassy yellow out to make it white, so I don't know how well it will take to your black hair without it being really damaged at the end. If you could get it to work, awesome.
>Damn it, Rinrindoll. I always think about adding a streak in my bangs like her. I probably won't do it.
>>8811135 Ah, I should have mentioned that my natural colour is basically grey with zero red tones. I've gotten it from virgin to white in two sessions before, it's just that I've never bleached over dye..
Anon from the last thread who asked about black dye.
I fucked up. I got the brown dye (as recommended by a seagull) and it came out fake-looking and jet black. It clashes with my skin so much and there are massive patches of red at the back of my head since my hair was too thick for just one box. I tried rinsing it with clarifying shampoo but it did nothing. I've lectures in less than a week, and my hair is dry, gummy and when I let it down I look like Tommy Wiseau.
People generally wont answer because you started a whole thread for no particular reason when there are already threads for asking questions like this (for example >>8806851), and you haven't contributed anything yourself. Ask in the help threads about stuff like this and people will be more responsive
No store wanted to go to the event, even with a 50% discount on booths, being 200 euros for a massive space. no partners because noone believed in them. And when they start looking down on everyone else like we are the ones who neeed events? yaeh right, you're the ones who need us, so go speak like your god to your diarys, because boohoo, noone cared about your stupid event.
They couldnt keep with their promises with some partners and they deserve this cancelation.
What's something, or multiple things, you would have liked someone to tell you as you were first getting into conventions, cosplay, jfash, etc?
Keep it as board-relevant as possible, but life advice that applies to the hobbies counts as well.

Have not been to this board in years. Anyone gave up on explaining the whole Lolita-is-a-fashion-not-costume to the normals? I was really particular about it when I was 18 but these days I feel like I don't care and it's tiring to always have to explain. I mean, normals will never get it and I don't really care if they do. Plus we /do/ look ridiculous and costume like in Lolita. If they call it a costume I kinda just go with the flow and brush them off with "yea its a costume fashion where you dress like a Victorian doll"
Am I the only one? Also... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>8809532 Not everything looks like a costume tho. I wear lolita daily and even I admit I stand out in school but it's not really more costume than someone else's clothes. However, in my opinion OTT has taken too much place in the fashion: it should be something represented in fashion shows and big events. The majority of the fashion should still be something you are really able to wear daily. In school nobody has ever asked about my "costume". Because it's just frilly pink clothes.
LOL. No one's asked me if I'm in a costume for a long, long, long time. When I first started, yeah, I'd have to explain I'm going to a dress-up party. But now I've learnt to dresss down, mix my lolita stuff with casual normie stuff, and the most I'd get is someone saying I look too nice for the grocery store.
As for tea parties, meetups and such, I'm going to guess that most people can see it's a party -- we're eating food, we're chatting and laughing, we're taking selfies, we turn down photos and don't interact... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>8809532 I live in one of the biggest cities in the US so I rarely am the weirdest looking person on the street, even on the odd occasions I'm out in OTT. Usually if someone is asking about my outfit I just tell them the name of the brand I'm wearing.
Anyone else here into doing cosplays that require military gear? If so then what's your next cosplay you're planning that has to do with it.
After my next con I'm planning to look into trying an XCOM 2 cosplay. Alot of the gear on them is custom-made so I feel I'll have to improvise or add onto current stuff I have. I know I could use a TF2 NEST vest for it but I'll have to look a bit further for the other stuff.
>>8809065 Well, to be honest, I've never actually made my own costume before. I'm very very new to cosplay, and the few cosplays I have done I was young enough to have my mom craft them for me. My most recent one I had a company make for me.
