>>9181748 I want to wear lolita to work and theoretically I should be able to. However, I am the youngest member in the department and therefore everyone treats me as such. Dressing as a Victorian toddler isn't going to help my case, unfortunately.
Any tips for working the aesthetic would be appreciated. I'm into classic btw.
Is it just me or is Lolita dying off? Seems like there are less and less people, second hand stuff is getting cheaper and cheaper too. For example, things used to be worth so much more, now some pieces are barely worth even half of what they used to be worth. I remember the good old days of Egl-comm-sales years ago and it's just not the same.
I know lots of Lolitas who left but I always assumed new girls would take their place. But it somehow just feels like we won't even be around in another one or two years. Anyone else feel that way?
Lolita is larger than it has ever before. Second hand stuff is cheaper because there's more of it, and comms have more members than ever. Lacemarket is more active than the EGL sales com ever was. Everyone on there seemed to be doing leaving lolita sales all the time anyway.
Starting up a thread because we don't have one and I'm thinking about getting my own embroidery machine. I'm very experienced with the Brother PE-770 at my makerspace but know how valuable it would be to have one in my home. But I was wondering if people had other recommendations for home machines before I just get something in my comfort zone.
I can't answer your question OP but I have a question of my own too. I'm a complete newbie to sewing and thinking of getting a Janome 525S. I have the money and I'm looking for a solid investment machine, it's also the same machine a local sewing class uses so I'm hoping to get some experience there too.
Can anyone vouch for it or do they have any warnings they want to make known?
>>9183414 Not a lot of Amazon reviews to go by. But if you're a noob and it's what your local shop teaches on then do it. I teach basic sewing and it's a struggle because my shop just replaced the old, user friendly a chines for some higher quality machines that come at the cost of a higher learning curve. It will be incredibly valuable to have someone who knows your specific machine
>>9180128 If you already have access to one, it's probably not very useful to also have one at home? I got an embroidery machine almost two years ago, and while I'm thankful to have one, and love the projects I've made with it, I haven't used it nearly as much as I thought I would. Not to mention you still have to shell out for digitizing software if you want to do fun stuff. Unless you plan on churning out an ungodly amount of lace, or something else that would be difficult to do in a makerspace, I think... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
ITT we give a "yes" or "no" answer to the question, "Is it ita?" This is only a fill-out-the-form thread, don't kill each other. Share your thoughts, talk about yourself.
Is it ita to... Have unnaturally colored hair/wig? Wear a cutsew with a non-casual coord? Not match all of your pinks? Wear a replica dress? Use a replica bag or shoes? Not tone down your coords and stop wearing sweet when you're 30? Wear full sets? Wear socks over tights? Wear bodyline? Act unladylike (drinking/smoking/swearing/roughhousing/etc)...

>>9178358 Is it ita to... Have unnaturally colored hair/wig? >No but that doesn't mean it won't look bad. Certain colours like cheese yellow will never look good though. Wear a cutsew with a non-casual coord? >No. Not all cutsews are casual. Just look at Moitie.

No opinion, I haven't seen enough examples to decide. >Not match all of your pinks? If they are mismatched warm/cool tones then yes.

Im a cosplay fan and i see many cosplayers using Patreon or another plataforms to sell Prints and Sets.
Maybe some of you are in the same "work model" so i want to ask:
- Camera Man: Do you Pay for your Photos? - The Photos: If you pay for them, are yours? the photographer cant claim some kind of weird rights? - Patreon and Photograper: Do you pay for session and its over or you make an arrangement for % of sales?
If you have another topic relative to this, please develop, i have so many doubts about this because i have some... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>9177320 As a photographer who's shot a few camgirls:
1) Of course you pay for your photos. You're going to make money off of them, but not going to pay the artist who took them?
2) Photographer's rights are spelled out in your modeling contract. If you don't want to pay for photos, expect the photographer to keep almost all the rights (which will almost certainly include the right to sell the photos). If you pay, except to get the rights (though I personally always reserve the right to artistic... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Posted this in the last thread but nobody responded and I'm just looking for input on this:
Does anyone feel like they don't have the right face for cosplay? I'm not ugly but have a very young looking round face, which I like but I don't see on other good cosplayers. I look at amazing cosplayers and think that even with makeup I just don't have the right features or something. I'm male too and most bishounen type characters seem to have really sharp features.
I can't explain it, I'd like to know from any good cosplayers... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>9174315 Also, are boots out of fashion? I love the look of boots like in the OP pic, but I've not seen anyone really wearing them for a couple of years now. Well, the odd person here and there wears them, but not much. Having said that, that's just what I've seen, so it could be subjective to my area. Are boots outdated now?
>>9173992 I had to google it and so far it looks pretty promising, although I'm not sure if all of the expectations are going to be fulfilled. I won't attend it anyway, but damn those Japan tickets sound so good...
I'm trying to make a costume for halloween that will challenge me to make something with some amount of mechanical/electronic design. By this I mean costumes that make use of programmable LEDs, motorized mechanisims, etc. I have very heavy background knowledge in electronics so I can whip up nearly anything.
I'm not sure how much of an audience there is for this on here, but could we get a inspo thread for "tech" costumes? While I can build a whole lot of electronic gear, I have no inspiration as to what costume to build. I'll contribute the best I can.
Tell us about the last meet you hosted, what went wrong? What did everyone love?
Are games important? What games are better, in your opinion?
What happened at the last meet you attended? What did you really want out of it that you either didn't get, or didn't expect to see there? What was the most memorable part of your experience?
I've been to two meets, and so far I can tell that food is a sticking point. Based on other people's feedback here, it's a very common issue. What was the most... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>9173412 I haven't hosted any meets this year because of my job, but I recently attended one at a bakery! >what I wanted out of the meet To actually sit and enjoy other lolitas company. Small talk about what they've been up to using info I remembered from the last meet. Gush about the latest glb, latest buys, dream dresses, whatever. >what I got out Segregation between the novice and the core group. Usually this isn't too much of a big deal because we get seated at different tables based on rank. But this time, we were all sitting on one large table and the core group made it a point to segregate the table by using chairs as bag holders in the middle....it was really awkward. Barely anyone talked to one another outside of their circles. The itas were loud and obnoxious which was especially embarrassing because the bakery echoed.
Food is probably the best thing to do in a large group because you have something to do/eat when you're not engaging in conversation. It also offers conversation starters for those who are shy.
I've never been to an in home meet, but I imagine them to be quite dull unless you're all very close. I know I wouldn't host one because I can't trust my comm members with personal information, let alone access to my sanctuary.
>>9173412 Private residence meets sound fucking weird unless you know the host pretty well.
The last two meets I attended were disappointingly small, not enough people in my comm have the same schedule and a lot of them are also cosplayers, so they haven't been wearing lolita lately because of all the cons
One was a bakery, the other was sushi. Typically museum meets get a lot of people to come out, I was hoping for a museum meet but nobody would commit to go this time and it got cancelled
my comm has meets at members homes a few times a year for things like halloween and christmas parties, it just gives the host the opportunity to go all out with decorations and whatever and then everyone who attends brings a plate of food to share. it tends to be the same smaller group of members who come to meets frequently, so we all know each other fairly well.

Can we please get some business resources such as tax related stuff? Its hard to find stuff through google since most people have permanent locations they sell at, unlike us, who travel to sell. Almost every thread someone asks about this too.
>>9172227 The harder part about taxes is it varies to such a wide degree by state and the income you're having from AA, as well as keeping accurate records for expenses you can write off against profits gained.
So, I've seen quite a few specials over the years try to argue that certain things they don't approve of make you "less lolita" (swearing, not being super nice, having sex, smoking weed or drinking, being what they consider unattractive, etc) but I have never once seen someone say that you're more or less lolita based on how much you own, except in reference to replica and Bodyline wardrobes. I know that this is partially because telling themselves that they're "more lolita" because they're a ~pure maiden~ is part of how bitter poorfags... Comment too long.

Have you ever thought of making a full scale mascot costume for a cosplay before? Have you thought of making original character mascots like many hobbyists have in Japan? Do you prefer using fur for realism or smooth fabrics for a cartoon look?

>>9164826 Yeah, I already had a layered version of that picture from my "quick fix" posted at >>9164247. I figured I might as well replace Nic Cage with Tully and use it for the OP, especially with how fast the post-con threads tend to go.
I'm a little nervous no one will know who I'm cosplaying when I'm Tak. But, I'm fulfilling a dream of mine since I was younger. I thought there'd be no better time than now since Invader Zim was recently brought back in comic form.
