Specifically black feathers, to create something like pic related.
If possible, I'd like naturally black (not dyed) feathers, to keep the iridescent look.
What I've found is that "pointer" feathers and longer types are pretty easy to find, but the plumage that would cover most of the mask is a bit harder to find. And most of the options out there are dyed turkey feathers.
>>8720194 That mask is trimmed turkey flats on the forehead and around the eyes and rooster saddle/hackle/tail feathers on the neck. If you must have iridescent feathers for the small feathers, you can find freeze-dried hen skins sold for fly tying, you'll have to pluck the feathers and they'll be out of scale with a human-sized mask.
a very long time ago when i was a young weeb and my parents took my to cons, i ran into a girl at katsucon who was that guy from dnangel whose name i can't remember right now. she had a huge, amazing, pair of black wings. my dad was talking to her about them and apparently she made them from turkey feathers, and made sure to only use right feathers on the right wing and left feathers on the left wing since there is a difference i was going somewhere with this but now i can't remember
It's been a while since we had one of these threads, so let's get one started! What kind of reactions do you get when you wear more unusual fashion out in public (Fairy kei, visual-kei, lolita, etc.)? Mostly positive? Mostly negative? What are some of your most memorable experiences with normies while dressed up? Please share!
I'm a sweet lolita, and the reactions are mostly positive. You get your "Are you in a play?" and "Who are you dressed up as?" questions, but they don't usually mean any harm. But I did get a "It's not Halloween yet!" yelled at me from a speeding car once. It was only a few days before Halloween, anyway. Even if I was in costume, people have Halloween parties early sometimes... Don't know what her problem was. Also got a "Little Bo Peep" comment from a mall Santa a couple days ago, lol. As if he was in a position to... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>8718975 Menhera is part of it, but I want a thread to disscuss the Junko Mizuno stuff that was shown in the last thread, not just menhera. People pointed out that the two have much in common, so samethread?
In light of the recent wave of well known Lolitas quitting, I've been thinking a lot about the subject. In almost every instance I've seen of this occurring over my 9 years in the fashion, it is usually someone deciding lolitas are awful and they can't deal with the community, even if the vast majority of attention they get is positive and they don't actually get any severe hate. Often times they also quit the fashion, while simultaneously saying how much they wish they could still wear it and some have said they were "forced" to stop wearing it... Comment too long.

>>8718859 Your last bit is something that has perplexed me for years, and has led me to believe that anyone who quits under those circumstances never really loved the fashion that much anyway, and mostly wore it for attention. I mean, it doesn't add up. You wouldn't stop wearing sweaters just because a few people who wear them are awful, it shouldn't be any different.
There must be hundreds of Lolitas who either withdrew from communities or chose not to join them, but who enjoy the fashion as much as anyone else.
>>8718859 people are sensitive. a couple of death threats and "ew ur ugly" messages and its time to leave. keep in mind alot of lolitas have never experienced any type of hate constantly being to sent them. they dont know how to deal with it, instead of dealing with it they would rather quit everything all together. if you ask me though, if you would leave an entire fashion just because a couple of trolls your love for the fashion wasnt very strong to begin with.
>>8718872 Death threats are different than what I'm talking about, I totally get someone leaving the community based on that. I was more talking about people who can't take any criticism, no matter how legit.
I saw here once a collage on coord thread (or coord inspo, I don't quite remember) Of a French coord. It was so pretty, but I didn't save it. If someone post it, I would love you forever. Sorry for no contribution tho.
