They think their wigs are worth raising the price on them by $20 bucks.. The hologram wig was $69 last week now it's $89.. Hell all their wigs went overpriced. The "new" fibers suck compared to the older wigs. I know most of their wigs don't cost over $21 from their supplier. They've failed again! I would have bought something for a cosplay but I will buy somewhere else.
Not lock shop either tho. I've he a rd it's gone down hill and the customer service has always been shit.
I haven't order one yet but I'm interested in dream holic from taobao. I also know there is a Japanese brand with more expensive wigs 6000 - 8000 yen but I don't really remember the name. Cecilia or something maybe?

Is it possible to set up hotel reservations for Anime Expo yet? I allegedly got put on a waiting list back in August, but I haven't heard anything from them since. I don't even know which hotel(s) are attached to/within walking distance of the convention center.
The hotel block doesn't seem open yet anon. But keep in mind if you're going with friends that the hotels will apparently now be doing wristbands. http://www.anime-expo.org/hotel-booking-policies/ None of the hotels are connected or really even super close to the con, but it shouldn't really matter because AX provides a shuttle service you can take back and forth from the con as long as you have a badge.
Are you wanting to be a reseller or a creator? There are a lot of creators on here that run their own businesses (check out the AA thread and archived AA threads on rebeccablacktech for some great discussions), and there are at least a couple of resellers/dealers as well.
I hate to say it because it's my "home con," but if you're into the con scene for cosplay, Anime Expo, unless you're a local.
It's just too big and crowded, too hot, and there's nowhere good for photos. It's obviously a different story if you're attending to go to panels and screenings or for exclusive merchandise, but if you're a cosplayer and thinking about flying to it, I recommend against it. The only exception, I guess, would be if you're super hungry for fame and exposure, because you're guaranteed to get... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Do you have any cool stories about meeting guests at anime cons? Any spaghetti stories? I'm sure Doug Walker alone has seen enough spaghetti to last a lifetime.

I love socks, socks are probably my favourite part of j-fash so lets have a good old fashion sock thread.

>How many socks do you have? too many, probably 60 pairs specifically for lolita altogether >Where do you get most of your socks? Brand/taobao/tutu anna/off brand ect. half is brand and the other half is taobao >Who is your favourite brand for socks? ap socks are pretty stretchy as are aatp socks >How often do you buy new socks just for a coord? not that often, but every time i buy new socks i try to make sure they go with what i already...

>How many socks do you have? Around 30-40 pair I think? Far too many for the size of my wardrobe. >Where do you get most of your socks? Brand/taobao/tutu anna/off brand ect. The vast majority is Angelic Pretty. There's some other brands in there too but no taobao or so. A haul isn't worth it with the crazy customs my country charges. >Who is your favourite brand for socks? Innocent World actually, or Baby. Their socks are a slightly better length on me than...

>How many socks do you have? around 50 including non lolita socks, around half of that are lolita appropriate and only 11 are brand. >Where do you get most of your socks? Brand/taobao/tutu anna/off brand ect. All of my brand socks bar one are ap, I have ordered a few from mufish and want to get more from them. I picked up some from Tutuanna when I was in Japan and might do a big order from them soon. For anyone in aus cotton on usually have cute pairs and on occasion thigh highs that work for casual j fash and sometimes otome, dangerfeild too, they both tend to be a bit shorter than you would want for ankle socks though. >Who is your favourite brand for socks? ap are great because I wear sweet so they suit my wardrobe the best and have interesting designs, but I am fat so they get stretched out easily. I have one Emily Temple cute pair that are super stretchy so I may look into getting more in the future. >How often do you buy new socks just for a coord? I very rarely buy socks with a coord in mind because I just fall in love with socks so easily. >Do you try to buy socks that will match with multiple items of your wardrobe? Sort of, but I am obsessed with brown socks even though I only have one brown main piece, which still has the tags on. >have you ever brought a main piece just because you like the socks from the release? No but if I was more financially comfortable probably. >do you have a dream pair of socks? I'd love to own the sugar fairy crew length socks in both pink and yellow.
Any tips on retying an Arda Chibi? I've been trying and having a really hard time dealing with the wig fit. It doesn't feel too small but it definitely feels tight around my forehead and hairline and I don't know why that is.
Take it from a lolita, it won't look cute. A lot of lolita looks cute because they're styled lolita, if you removed all the lolita-ness you'd just end up with a frumpy baggy skirt made with way too much fabric to look good.
Go on the taobao thread and find normie cute shit instead, that usually works out much better.
Any of you gulls been on a cruise? Im thinking of frilling up but not sure if it is a good idea. I know it is going to be hot during the day, so I was thinking of saving the frills till night.
My ship doesn't have dry cleaning, so I was thinking of busting out the bodyline and leaving the bruando at home. Or perhaps I can maybe bring a tidestick and sewing kit just incase a waist tie button wanders of?
What do you think? I've never been on a cruise so any insight is much appricated. Thanks.
Cruises are full of rude slobbish people, sticky children, careless drunks, and I wouldn't chance wearing anything nice except when going to dinner or a show in case something happened. Depending on your wardrobe I can guarantee you'll get a slew of comments and shitty jokes like "are you Bo Peep?". Which is not uncommon around normies, but you'll be around the same people the entire trip and if they're obnoxious assholes you will ruin into them again before the trip is over. But cruises are fun and I'm sure you'll have a good time. I... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Huh. I actually wore Sherbet Marine on a cruise to Bermuda. It was a lot of fun. Cruise ships have a lot of good spots for taking pictures, too. It's definitely warm on land, but it's not terrible. I went for a walk down the by the docks then stopped at a bar for fluffy drinks. If you really want to do it, then do it. A tidestick and small sewing kit won't take up much room in your bag.
