I fear I'm losing my love for Lolita even though I have more pieces than I ever have. Meets come up and I just let most of them pass unless it's something really elegant or exceptional. I do like to wear plain gothic coords for no special reason when by myself though. Maybe I'm just wanting to go solo and leave the comm idea mostly behind?
There's a girl in a nearby comm that I started talking to. I thought she was cool, and we had a great mutual friend.
But, she lives far away from myself and her best friend.
She was really bitchy at me on Facebook for calling me out on buying my dream dress, because apparently because my family is on food stamps, I cannot have nice things?
So, I slowly took her best friend while she was away on some stupid vacation. She came back to a shit storm of her being a replica chan and left the Lolita community, but is still a massive ita. Her best friend talks... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>8717267 Honestly good on you anon. I had to go on food stamps for a while and if I had completely cut myself off from all "fun" expenses I probably would have gone crazy from stress. I hate it when people don't stop and consider how awful it would feel to be both in need of assistance to feed yourself because of a tough spot and unable to get yourself something nice on occasion.
So I'm going to a con in about a week that I was just informed of, a small one day con and the only thing I own j fash related is this bodyline yukata I bought when I was 16. Is there anything I can do to make it look good and not ita? Is it hopeless? I don't want to look like a fool. Pic related, I have it in pink
>>8716478 Is it one piece or is the skirt seperate? If seperate, wear the skirt with a Victorian style or Peter Pan collar white or beige/off white blouse, tights and girly shoes (if no Lolita socks and shoes) and a pink hair bow.
Feeling really good, gulls. For the first time ever, my comm and that of our sister city south of the border will be having a meetup together. Thanksgiving weekend! Our own members have expanded now that we have more exposure and there will be great feasting in this international metroplex. >Living the First Thanksgiving dream
Let's discuss mainstream representation of cosplay and J-fash. The good, the bad, and the ugly.
To start, here's a terrible representation of what appears to be a sweet lolita outfit. This is in an exhibit on Japan's "kawaii" culture (already cringe even without this hideous coord) in the Japan pavilion at Epcot. This is literally the best Disney could do. And if you read the blurb, it's described as a "cosplay outfit".
I actually emailed Disney complaining about it and saying... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>8716325 I actually posted this mannequin in an ita thread a while ago and someone responded with "tfw I know who you are" even though I don't know anyone who goes on 4chan. Are you the person they mistook me for maybe?
>>8716258 I have two rods in my closet. One is for normie clothes and the other is for lolita clothes. I sort by article of clothing, then color. So in this order: blouses, boleros/cardigans, skirts, dresses. Then I rgb in each category. My wardrobe is small enough (<20 main pieces) that this works well for me.
>linking all the lolita related threads You are doing gods work anon.
My family will be visiting relatives in Florida for thanksgiving but I have work the next day (recreation not retail thank god) so I can't go. I'll probably dress up in lolita and do something with my bf. No thanksgiving related meets though sadly.
I love seeing these sugary carnival era sweet lolita pictures as the OP images, I'm glad it's not totally kill. I generally refer to it as "2010-12 AP sweet" but is there another way you refer to the vibe it gives off? Like a solid with a square headdress, sugary carnival with a pony bag, and dolly cat with princess sleeves are all sweet, but very different at the same time.
>>8715501 This is my favorite era of lolita, I wish people would stop shitting on it and screaming "ageplay!~" when they all know they were lusting after Milky Planet back then. I don't like when people refer to all 2008-2012 sweet as "OTT sweet" because stuff like the OP pic is what I saw and loved most and it's definitely not OTT. Maybe we should call it something more like "pastel sweet" or "sugary sweet" or something.
