Hey so I'm planning my first Photoshoot at a con and I was wondering is it usually assumed that a professional photographer will be present? I've been to one before and it was just regular people taking pics and the only professional ones were from photographers that happened to walk by. Like I don't know what the norm is and if people will be all mad if there isn't one present? Thanks for the help. Pic unrelated
I've been running meets for 3 years, and no, pro photos are not expected. Just make sure to include everyone, be flexible, and work with whatever characters show up, and you'll be fine. Meetup pics are more for fun than showing off.
>>9062668 You have to contact one. You should have a dedicated photographer. preferably one you've paid. Just ask what their fee is and how many people. Shooting 3-4 people is chaos enough, throw in 30 and forget it
As a photographer I don't go to gatherings anymore because it's a cluster fuck as the other poster hinted at (and they aren't worth much artistically). There will always be a random taking photos do you could try asking one of them. If you've got any friends willing to help who also have a decent camera ask them too because you can bug them for the photos
How does one go about becoming a good lolita vlogger? What are some dos/don'ts and what kinds of videos do you love or hate? How do you feel about the more popular vloggers (like Deerstalker, Lor, Peachie, etc) and what sort of things do you wish there were more of in Lolita related videos?
I hate any kind of "lolita " video where they aren't wearing lolita! Like the fuck is that shit? People doing un boxings or rant videos and they are wearing fucking pjs. I came here for lolita goddammit. Updating consistently is also super important and it helps to have a cute house.
>>9062029 I agree with pretty much everything you said except the lolita transformations. It's nice way to show people how you get ready and you could even make it a makeup tutorial based on the coord you're wearing. I would probably avoid using the word transformation if I was to make videos though. People like to watch make up and get ready videos so I think it's a good way to get more people interested in your channel while you're also doing other things.
Room is booked but havent paid my share yet. And I dont even know how many people are gonna room with me One of my cosplays is almost done and im looking for material for the second one 80 bucks so far, (for food/souvenirs) in reserve. My job didn't give me Thursday and Friday off, And I have school Thursday so im going to probably only attend 3 days Honestly....preparation is better than last year!
>>9043243 Yesterday I wore lolita to class for the first time in a while. I felt exactly like OP, all those disgusting normalfags. Since it was a rather hot day people were even more casual and somehow this ticked me off.
So originally there was supposed to be another thread and open up a cross board dialogue but some how that's gone, so I want to reopen that dialogue since the /fa/ thread is pretty much done.
I invite you to have your own thread about fashion, it's board, and culture thus allowing the two boards to read and share thoughts and comments, and clear up misconceptions about one and another; as I think the two hobbies are sister hobbies in a way.
>>9039920 /FA/ Here, I went to a con once dressed as max from where the wild things are it was very nice. It was really hot though, I don't know how y'all do it for 3 days 10 hours a day I was dead after 1.
>Ideal Number Depends on how often you wear it. If you wear it daily or frequently, you'll ideally want a larger number. Someone who wears it for special occasions may be more content with a smaller number.
I wear it to meetups, outings, special occasions and conventions and I own about 24 right now. There are pieces I've not worn yet and some I haven't worn in over a year. My wardrobe is stuffed full. I feel this is a good number for me, but I have a growing wishlist. The most I've owned at once was 30. But I've... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>Ideal number This is so hard to answer. I have 51 main pieces and am not a daily Lolita, so I feel that I have too much. However, over 75% of my main pieces have been worn at least once and I like the variety that I have to choose from, so I think 40-45 would be ideal for me. Enough to keep the variety and not feel overwhelmed/like I'm running out of space. I'm selling things to get there now.
>Too much Depends on the person and their style of wear. I think 50 is too much for me because things... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Talk about things that had a course of popularity that you simply didn't like.
For me it's peignoirs. I have seen some cute ones worked well but still didn't find it my cup of tea. Then there where those who thought any peignoir would work and thrifted them off the goodwill racks.
Dang Anon, you beat me to it. I'll turn 25 next year, and I've always been fascinated by Lolita. As a greasy tomboy I've been bullied a lot by the girls from school and wanted to be cute and feminine. But I didn't know where to start so I started browsing different kinds of fashion until I came across Lolita. However, that weeby teen couldn't afford brand and parents thought it would make me be immature for the rest of my life. Now I have a degree, an income, but I can't really be bothered to buy or coord and I lurk here to see the cute outfits.... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I thought I'd grown out of anime and manga for quite a few years now but then a good friend of mine got me into Jojo. I've been in weeb hell ever since, and I love it. If you feel like you're growing out of something you love and you don't want to let it go, try finding something new to get excited about, be it a new series, a new fashion style, a new way to coord, etc. Just don't force it. It's okay to grow out of things, it happens all the time in many different ways, and sometimes forcefully hanging on to something that doesn't make... Comment too long.

So other than the usual Kamikaze Girls, what else would you screen for a meetup?
I've done Princess Jellyfish and How to Date a Fujoshi before and am running out of ideas. Also have pic related but the theme is kind of mature and depressing. (It has awesome appearances of old school lolita though.)
I didn't see a thread for this, and I've come across a lot of cosplays of cartoons from my childhood at cons recently. Old Nickelodeon, Cartoon Network, even PBS cosplays: if you see 'em, post 'em! Also post if you're planning any nostalgic cosplays. Starting off with this Judy Funnie.

>go to con dressed as idol version of chara >someone approaches and says i look familiar >say my character >"oh i knew you were familiar!! why aren't you wearing her glasses? i would have recognized you then, god :/" >character wears glasses 1/10 times she appears
Day 1 cosplays are usually really dumb ones my friends and I do. One time we did some half assed Umineko that was made with some inside jokes and shit, but I look pretty generic anime girl and mostly unrecognizable. >someone stops me and asks where I'm from >being a shit I make up a VN name and say its pretty obscure >other person smiles along and says that they played that VN a while back and said they liked my cosplay >spout more made up shit about...
