Hi seagulls, long time no see. I'm hoping to go to the AP tea party in Paris in July. I've been planning coords and I don't have any shoes to go with my navy cosmic jsk. I'm thinking of buying either silver or gold (leaning towards silver so I'll have an excuse to buy me a silver melty moon bag....) but those are hard to come by, especially since I want to avoid replicas, and I also can't wear high heels to save my life.
I found pic related on ebay and they don't ring a bell replica-wise, though I could be wrong. If anyone has them can you tell me how comfortable they are?
>>9010569 LACC hasn't been able to support AX attendance numbers for a while. They don't have enough big rooms for panels which is part of why you have long ass lines. By size it's around rank 34 in the US.
I didn't want to do a Taobao order until late May, but then the Collared Dove series popped up. I knew I had order that divine blouse before the store became overwhelmed with orders for it (and alas, they closed the preorder for the blouse already). My *true* Taobao haul later this month will be way more socks/shoes/cosplay.
And gotta have menhera tights for whenever Bunny & Black finally re-release the Nurse JSK.
Less than a month to go, are your cosplays done yet?

My cosplay is pretty much done. I'm still salty that Nick refuses to swap my panel, though. What's so hard about swapping panels? I'm a first time panelist so maybe I'm not getting something. I've heard in recent years that the old panel director had no issue moving panels..

This con was a total disappointment for me. Aside from the hotel security going full gestapo, the con itself was kinda a bust. Absolutely no good events or panels and the exhibit hall was mediocre at best. Artist Alley seemed alright, but that's not really my thing.
We had a good party going, but only an hour and a half or so into it we got a first and final warning from the hotel. We checked with all our neighbors beforehand and everyone was cool with us throwing the party, so whoever complained wasn't even in the surrounding rooms. The way the hotel handled...

>>9027032 With floor length stuff, I use the opportunity to wear larger heel/platform shoes. The skirt will hide how crazy the shoes are and you get some nice leg height which in combo with a smaller torso can give the illusion of having goldon ratio proportions.
Yeah I'm throwing some salt but seriously It's just three fucking red lines on the face with a smokey winged liner and black lips.. oh yea cat ears. Real original. Real fucking Kitten looking https://youtu.be/omLTeTt6FCo
>>9018211 She has a really fucking hard time putting in those lenses. I remember her posting about it because the diameter was huge compared to what she had been wearing before. I like Mary. No amount of salt will make me not like her.

One thing I've noticed after going to Comiket is that American conventions seem to be unique in that after we cosplay, we go to room parties or raves and we get hammered. I know this also happens in the UK but does this happen in your country as well?
>>9004619 Nice idea for a thread, OP. Germanfag here. I noticed american cons usually take place in big hotels, is that right? (I always wonder why there's carpet in american con photos, but if the con is at a hotel...) German/european cons usually take place in fair halls or other suitably big enough event halls, but not hotels. There are also usually no rules about constantly having to have your con badge visibly on you.
Room parties are common too. People usually either go to a nice restaurant with their friends... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Swedish con culture is really... Specific. Swedish cons were for a long time pretty dependent on cultural grant money, and in the requirements for this it was often stated that the con be a safe area for youth. As in, no alcohol or drugs. So alcohol and bars and whatnot just... Isn't really part of Swedish con culture at large? Of course, people still go out drinking and they'll still host private parties, but it doesn't occur at-con and it's not part of con culture.

Back when i first knew lolita, there was a "lifestyle" aspect to the fashion that isnt as present now but i really enjoyed it. On a forum i frequented we used to have a thread about our "lolita moments of the day". It could be anything making us feel cute,princessy,like a true lady,... And i thought it would be a cute idea to make a thread about it.

this idea is lovely! i often get these little moments myself and i feel so silly and frivolous, but lolita is for me a form of escapism. nothing wrong ith making your day a bit brighter by looking down and see my favorite print on my dress or intricate lace on my sleeves.
for me lolita moments of the day are the ones that are personal, only little moments i notice, like

This is such a cute idea!

- Pickup from Clockwork Alchemy is much faster but you have their badge - Someone on facebook said you can do on-site reg and pick up pre-reg at the same time (on-site for Friday is incredibly fast, may not be true for Saturday) - Temps in the 80s-90s - Da-ICE concert at 7pm today, doors at 615 - They were walking around the dealer's hall - Someone recruited people for a BDSM party in the last thread - /cgl/ meetup had a bunch of people
Let's have a serious discussion of the quality of various brands. All Japanese brands (and taobao/indie brands) are welcome, this is not limited to lolita but keep the discussion relevant to J-.fashion. Inspired by a brand quality discussion in the larme thread. Maybe you own several pieces from this brand, or you've visited one of their shops. I'll start by saying that I own a few indie brand blouses (Surface Spell and Infanta mostly) and I'm not a fan of the material (usually chiffon or a polyester). Also one of my Surface Spell blouses has a... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
So far, in my experience newer angelic pretty had the best quality in terms of fabric and construction. Their blouses offer more removable bows. Innocent World is nice, but it sometimes doesn't come with lining, and some bows are not made, but simple ribbons that you have to bite yourself every time. Metamorphose has good quality, the skirts are more comfy, the shirring is very good, but the fabric is rough. Skirts don't come with extra bows. Perhaps more sturdy than AP. I tried some of their blouses and I find them awkward to wear and not comfy

One of my Meta dresses is made out of a really weird material. It feels sturdy but also weirdly stretchy? The construction itself is good but the material choice is weird. It feels a bit like a crossover between cotton and jersey knit.
To eliminate people scalping tickets to resell, you need to provide an email before purchasing tickets for NYCC They're not telling anyone about the sale date online unless you verify! Remember to do this verification so you guys can buy tickets.
Forgot link: http://www.newyorkcomiccon.com/Tickets/NYCC-Ticket-Process-and-Show-News/#NYCC >>9019254 I think it's an okay measure, at least it'll thin out the competition for buying my ticket. I'd rather have 400,000 people logged on to fight for tickets then 500,000
>>9011274 Work at the Baby/AP stores in NYC/San Fran. All I can think of to go "full lolita".
If you work in a small office and everyone is chill you can probably wear some toned down lolita outfits, but why would you want to wear any more than that anyway? No one has time for 2 petticoats, uncomfortable shoes and 10 accessories while sitting at a computer trying to get shit done or meeting with clients or something.
If you work somewhere more corporate with a stricter dress code youre out of luck though.
