I got into lolita not so long ago, around 2 years ago was when I started actually wearing it. I absolutely love old school lolita but I found Kamikaze Girls to be a pretty average to below average movie. I don't get why everyone loves it. Is it just because the main character is a lolita? Or is it something I don't understand because I'm not an oldfag?
Hello /cgl/ i am starting a project to create a full set of male barroth blademaster armor >image related But I can't find any good plans of the armor for scale and general sizing, so I thought I could get a helping hand from any experienced anons.
>>9154483 >plans They don't exist. People who make their MonHun armors aren't working from plans. They figure it out on their own.
>scaling and sizing This is the right question to ask.
What you're going to need to do first is get some consistent, high quality reference. Screenshots are a good place to start, but concept art works also. Just as long as the figure is all the same size and you have multiple angles to view from. Also... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Amecon had an awesome new feature this year- a schedule app that shows you all the events on every day, lets you favourite events to build your own schedule, sends you reminders when an event is starting and messages about things being cancelled or moved, and even has a map so you can see where everything is. Fantastic idea for cons with a more spread out venue, but I'd really like to see it at more panel-centric cons in general.
I've started up a new tumblr, who are your favourite lolitas/oujis/EGAs to follow? I'm looking for inspiration.
Also do you think there's any point in starting a non-tumblr lolita blog? I've seen so many start up and get no recognition, mostly because everything has been said already. So unless you have the closet of Milkyfawn, is there any point?
I'd really only start a real blog if I already had a large following on some other social media, so a harder to find "old school" blog would already have some kind of base following from your tumblr or insta
Do you have any stories about the parents of underage comm members getting involved and messing things up? Like, the kid is not the problem at all but it's their parent that is making everyone resentful?
The mother of one of our younger members once stepped in to help her organize a meet. It was nice of her and we were supportive but frankly I imagine that said member would have done a better job organizing it without her help. The event page her mother set up on facebook was public so every random normie on her friend list could access it and invite themselves; thankfully none of them showed up but it did lend itself to some awkward situations; imagine trying to explain the fashion to strange middle aged wine moms and even stranger men who are interested in the "meeting...

I had this one insident that didn't involve a comm but it was between me (an adult) a 14-year old that wanted me as her Lolita mentor and the girl's mother.
>Girl loves punk, gothic, hot topic and wants to be a Lolita.

>>9154385 I want to just add that after this experience I'm starting to wonder if a lot of fat kids become fat adults because their parents end up projecting on them instead of helping them. The reason why I brought up the girl's weight is that she was really comfortable with herself; meaning she was very mentally and emotionally stable. Just fat. But her mother kept creating and planting all these insecurities that could drive any child to start questioning themselves.

In case you skipped the OP, I added two Strawpolls in the OP to see if people are interested in a /cgl/ meet at Abunai and/or ACC. >Abunai Meet? http://www.strawpoll.me/11016284 >ACC meet? http://www.strawpoll.me/11016293
Feel free to discus possible times, locations and such in the thread. Keep in mind I won't be there myself to wave my ridiculously tiny Tully flag, so someone else will have to be "that bloke awkwardly looking around for a bunch of seagulls".
I heard it was cancelled and then they decided to uncancel it? And in the process of uncancelling they forgot to tell some important people. I don't expect this to be more than a clusterfuck of a con, I wasn't even gonna bother going til my homies from Cali hit me up on coming to Vegas for this con.
Anyone have any retail stories they want to share? The good and the bad. Whether you’re shopping for crafting supplies or working the counter. All types of stories welcomed. Just keep it /cgl/ related.
Also, some general annoying things about working there that aren't really cgl related but eh:
-Parents letting their children knock over all the fabric bolts/items/etc. -Customers coming in having no clue at all about what they're making/measurements. -No one reads the fine print on coupons and then get annoyed when they won't work. -Also when the fabric tickets won't scan and I have to type in the numbers/yardage for a dozen different fabrics. Same with phone coupons; half the time they won't scan so I have to punch them in manually.
Can we talk about what the fuck is up with New England? First, AB cancelled their dances and instituted 4 hour waits to get patted down for contraband, then Connecticon started stalking people at elevator doors, harassing even non-congoers for badges to get out of the elevators.
Now, AAC announces no more rave, no more lobbycon, and no more extras in your rooms.
Why is this region so shit for having a good time? Autists happy with watching four ask-a-character panels as their whole con? Leftover puritan morals? wtf.
You do realize the AB raves were canceled because people fucked up one time to many and the pat downs are because of the fucking bombing and threat at that shitty ass pokemon event right? Shit sucks but it's not for no goddamn reason.
I've only done it twice, one good and one bad. I'll start with good one first.

My first out of state con, I flew halfway across the country to Acen and roomed with randos from the forums. Nothing bad happened except one night I had gone to sleep early and one of their friends comes in with a motherfucking TRUMPET at midnight.
Just keep it flat like it was packed and either store it in the original bag or a similar size bag. It can stick out of the bag; that's fine, it just has to be wide enough to not deform the hoops. The main goal you are seeking is to make sure the bag keeps it from touching the floor directly. Try to store it against a wall or wedged into a narrow space between a piece of furniture and a wall.
>>9136441 When I used off-brand, homemade petticoats I use to layer two to get the proper shape.
Now I own a classical puppets in both Lolita shapes and I only have to use the one. It's worth investing in the money to get the right share the first time; I spent $60 making a petticoat with fabric on sale and it deflated constantly. I bought a classical puppets for $35 and have been using them for two years without any form of failure.

Most jfashion styles obviously cater to Asian body types. A lot of them have sizing that's limited or garment cuts that aren't flattering on people who don't have the small build most Japanese people have. A lot of people get criticised on here for being too tall/chubby/big-breasted for certain outfits. What jfashion is most suitable to people with more western body types? I'm not talking about being fat, I'm talking about people in healthy weight ranges who don't have stereotypical Asian figure. What cuts or items are more flattering to them? What style has the most of these? Pic unrelated.
Probably something like cult party or dolly kei, or fairy kei, as items can be thrifted or bought from local or vintage stores or something rather than from Japanese brands. I dont know if you've looked through the larme threads but there's been kind of an ongoing discussion on non-asian body types in the style. Personally i think larme can look good on someone with a non Asian body, especially taller people, but you may have to pay closer attention to the balance and style of the fashion so you're not showing too much leg for example
In Lolita fashion something you can do if you have an hourglass figure is to get dresses that have a more corset shape to their bodice. Most Lolita big brands don't so dresses like this but Alice and the Pirates & Victorian Maiden do make dresses in that kind of cut. With Lolita fashion the two major points is to make sure the skirt is the right shape and there is enough skin coverage; beyond that you can mess around with the shape of the bodice and other details.
I'm not sure if you've thought your quest through...
>very definition of jfashion means it's fashion for/by japanese people >looking for clothes meant for japanese people that don't fit japanese people it's meant for.
idk, you can try looking for oversized clothes (t-shirts, sweaters) or fat people clothes like Plumprimo. Fair warning though, oversized clothes tend to fit odd on actually larger sized people, and... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.

AP Floral JSK + Head Piece: $75 + ship Bought from Usagi. Tried on a couple times but never worn out. In good condition. Fits 36 inch bust and 26-27 inch waist. I'd say 36 inches for the bust is max to look nice. Waist can fit likely up to 29-30 well.

So holiday matsuri just announced an international guest who will be judging for their Cosplay Super Show. Does this mean he's also judging to send a US team to CICAF and CC? Could they not get a respectable American judge to help with that?
