>>8699125 There's really nothing you can do to prevent that. Using a lesser known SS might lower the chances but it's never 100%, and you forgo the convenience of Buyee. A lot of Japanese sellers don't like selling to shopping services.
>>8699261 Maybe they want to keep the item in the country? I know sometimes bids will get cancelled if they think it's a guy, also.
>>8699292 Yeah, but.... that's clearly only because of all the backlash. She still impulsively bought an inbred cat from a disreputable source. What matters is that it gets home safe, though, so I guess the outcry worked.
>>8699225 ugh. I used to sew but I was never good... I just altered normalfag clothes back when I was like 18. Then I didn't have a sewing machine for years.
I'm fucking 28 now, and my boyfriend has a sewing machine he uses for cosplay. He keeps telling me to learn how to sew to make homemade lolita. I keep trying to explain to him that it's actually very hard to make lolita dresses and the quality of fabric they use is expensive as fuck.
>>8699360 >it's actually very hard to make lolita dresses and the quality of fabric they use is expensive as fuck.
Neither of these things are the least bit true. Lolita dresses patterns are extremely simplistic and the fabrics are no more expensive than any other decent quality garment fabric. The problem is the hobby is full of people with really shitty taste and zero sewing skills. Any moderately proficient sewist with a modicum of taste can make a nice JSK.
Where can I get gold mini crowns that aren't ita? There's one on LM right now but I don't like it. If someone has one or a reasonably priced baby scepter, I really want one. The b/s/t is saggin and I've never made my own thread before
>>8698875 >http://itest.2ch.net/test/read.cgi/fashion/1405486297 I was hype to see a Japanese lolita thread but couldn't understand anything with shitty translate.
>>8698898 >http://blog.livedoor.jp/gothlolinews/ Mostly couldn't understand this but this made me laugh: "Do not because potato's a potato in Pretty and wearing Tsukema be dry in a flashy wig".
I also found a lot of people discussing public reactions to them wearing lolita here, which was quite interesting: http://blog.livedoor.jp/gothlolinews/archives/26180364.html Translation is shit but someone's being surprised at being complimented by a kogal, and other people are saying they've got a lot of compliments from high-schoolers, little kids and grandmas. Sounds just like the west to be honest, apart from the high school girls part.
There's something here about people being compared to maids but I don't understand it: http://blog.livedoor.jp/gothlolinews/archives/23528176.html#more
And finally this bit really made me laugh, otaku drawing pics of semi-naked anime characters (e.g. Konata) in that Metamorphose sailor/girl scout suspender skirt. Lolita are complaining saying it perverts the fashion, or complaining that meta should have known better than to display the skirt on a torso without a blouse: http://blog.livedoor.jp/gothlolinews/archives/26002634.html#more
>>8698903 >>8698909 >http://bbs.fumi23.com/show.php?article_id=1678566&host_id=bbs&view_type=1&type_id=&page=new&bbs_id=44 Not that much to see here, just Japanese lolitas criticizing a girl's/the stock pic's shit Bodyline coordinate (picture won't load for me though) and saying she should save up for Baby if she likes it so much. Some slightly more positive opinions on Bodyline having certain uses, but the translation is garbled as heck so I'm not sure.
>>8698981 >http://girlschannel.net/topics/3604/ Seems like an ita thread here. Pretty bitchy, usual stuff of calling girls fat/ugly, some of whom aren't even fat, and then other people saying it's just an unflattering photo.
>>8698991 >Japanese opinions on muslim lolitas. >http://girlschannel.net/topics/427603/ This is a much more positive thread for the most part (more positive than discussions on /cgl/), but a few people do start derailing with talk of terrorism etc halfway down, and from then on it's a lot less "so cute!" and a lot more serious discussion of discrimination against women, comparisons of Saudi Arabia to Indonesia, etc. For some reason a lot of people think strict Muslims *have* to wear black?
>>8699007 >>http://new.bbs.2ch2.net/test/read.cgi/kotanuki/1309537289/i?q=1&guid=on >>http://ex2.2ch.net/test/read.cgi/net/1083764463/ >Japanese ita threads (slightly outdated though) These two are old, not gonna bother commenting since I've seen them before.
>>8699751 Nothing has happened with my Horror Garden order yet either. I ordered an unrelated accessory separate to that order the same night and it's already been shipped. Maybe they're just working on HG right now?
>>8699755 I just remembered what happened in the Korean comm, when I think Haenuli bought clothes from Korean lolitas and sold them on the Western market, they were pissed as hell and she was banned from the community?
>>8699755 >>8699787 Basically, from what I've heard from friends living in Japan, the reason they want to keep it within their own country is that the likelihood of being able to buy that item again later decreases if the item goes abroad. So if they have seller's remorse, they're screwed. But more than that, they dislike dealing with shopping services because they often don't follow the listing restrictions (example: a lot of listings say "self-introduction" as one of their terms, meaning that if you've not bought from a seller, you should message them first; shopping services often skip that step), and if they get into a dispute, the SS will almost always win because they have more resources at hand. The statement about not selling to accounts held by men also is one excuse I've heard, but I'm not sure how true it is, since I've had a friend buy things for me on auction before without issue. Of the three theories, the fact that SS are inconvenient to sell to and cause trouble for small sellers seems the most likely reason that they prefer not to deal with them.
In the case of the Korean comm, apparently, they were trying to make things more egalitarian. Prices are kept low for friends, and they try to keep nice pieces within the comm. By "scalping" to the Western Market, Haenuli broke their unspoken rules.
I joined Korean comm after Haenuli banned so I don't know much about the drama. However, the official announcement is that she made second account or more to purchase from sale comm. Since it's only lolita sales comm, it's kinda strict on rule and sale feedback. I personally think they have more feeling banning her. I want to know if there's more back story than what I heard.
>>8699862 That makes me really sad since she was really sweet in person and a highlight of Rufflecon. Alternately she swooped in and grabbed something I was about to purchase on Lacemarket so at least she's still buying haha.
>>8699839 What are these Korean indie brands she bought from? I'd actually like to see some of their stuff. Lower prices for friends are all well and good, but it's strange to me some businesses do not like the idea of expanding abroad.
So I just want some opinions, because this really irritates me.
I see a lot of dresses sitting at the same price for months on end, where the seller may reduce the price for like "$10" or something. The dress isn't selling for them for that price, but they keep it at that price. If you offer them a lower price, they will tell you that it would be effecting what they paid for it.
That really bothers me because if a dress isn't selling at a price, I lower it until I find a buyer. I'm also pretty reasonable on haggling. I'm not concerned about making my money back on a used product, especially if it's not that popular.
>>8700144 not everyone is desperate for money, and they don't need to lower their prices so they can sell their dresses right now a lot of things do eventually sell, you just have to be patient. if you like to lower your prices in order to sell your pieces quicker, that's good for you if you value time over money
i don't think you need to be so bothered over what other people are doing with their items
>>8700111 I'd rather buy a $200 dress than $10 an hour for heat. I can take a warm shower for less and then put on a sweater. Heat is stupid and I live in the NW where it goes below 0 degrees sometimes. Unless you're fucking snowed in I see no reason to waste power like that.
>>8700080 Not businesses, the community. She was buying items from regular comm members, then selling them to western lolitas at a big price hike.
Though, according to rumour, she also bought leftover stock of Sacred Night that was set aside during the Lief x Mew mess, and sold those abroad as well. I have no idea if THAT is true, however. I don't know where to look for records of the sale, since it would have been EGL ages ago, and I don't know if she used the same LJ handle.
It's not a collab with one other brand, it's a three-way collab between Btssb, Volks and Nakamura Asumiko. So, three really popular names in lolita, doll and manga, respectively. They really amped up the release, too. Volks released the dress sets only on two very popular dolls (Charlotte and Liselotte). Seriously the dolls alone would have sold out even if naked. Btssb released Ginger Doll and Milk Tea sets together with Marionette in the Closet, the print for Marionette featured the dress sets and was drawn by Asumiko Nakamura. There was a comic that came with some of the products, I forgot which, though. Also gorgeous photoshoots in GLB, but I guess that's a given.
The rabid fans of one name or another were probably fighting each other to get their hands on everything. iirc both ginger doll set and milk tea (btssb, human size version) had a second round of reservations (at least) because the first round completely filled out within the first day.
As for the pricing, just about everything from the set was trading at retail or above retail even for secondhand pieces. I don't think I've seen the jsk set exceed 100k yen though, one million yen really is pushing things.
>>8700422 I have the skirt, and the manga, and I REALLY want the JSK and the doll dress set but these are yet to come into my collection. I love this release for basically all the reasons you have stated but unfortunately when it was released I was a poor student so now that I am an employed adult I have been able to be on the lookout for everything in this print.
I have definitely seen the jsk itself listed for 100k yen not even a set though I didn't follow through to see if it sold as it was a colourway I didn't care for.
>>8700215 >Everyone who sews has a vagina >One person's preference means nobody prefers otherwise
I'm not even the anon you're replying to but modern sewing vernacular in terms of magazines and blogs is definitely moving towards sewist as the preferred term, especially for someone who is not female/doesn't sew professionally (hobbyists etc.)
Wait, so we're talking 100k without the bonnet? I've seen sets at 150k yen, but they were complete with bonnet. Holy moly, the prices for this release keeps going out of my reach.
I only have the milk tea doll dress (sans shoes), if you and I combine we'd have one decent set together, lol. We have the same history, it was release at a time when I could not afford it. I'm starting to think I should have been looking for the human dresses rather than the doll dresses first, if the prices keep climbing like this.
>>8700422 I remember this and the regret for not ordering it is real now. How is Baby about releasing things that are collabs? I'd like it even if they did it in different colors like they sometimes do. I'm sure a lot of people feel similar.
>>8700215 Why the fuck you here complaining if you don't have any fucking idea what you're talking about? Yes, sewing requires materials too but it's not a fuck ton and it's very likely not tulle. Yes, obviously quality is more expensive but most lolita dresses are polyester. It's not silk and cutting edge engineered synthetics.
Hopefully I can get a bit of advice. I'm struggling with making a decision on a purchase. I have about 220 to spend on my first real lolita dress and I've been browsing LM and Closet Child restlessly for days. I've seen some things I really like - but I am totally enjoying one dress in particular (pic related). As you can see, it's not BURANDO. On one hand, I think it's a lovely dress that suits my tastes and with as cheap as it is - I can get nicer accessories and put money towards another dress, sooner. However, I'm going to be wearing this dress to my first meetup at the comm in a state I just moved to. I don't really know anybody here and I'm bad at socializing in the wild - so I'd love to make friends in the Lolita comm. I don't want the other Lolitas to think I'm cheap or distasteful. Also - it seems the only thing people take seriously is BURANDO. Is it worth it to spend a bit more on getting brand to earn the respect of my fellow Lolitas - or should I just b myself? Sorry for the angst/blog post.
>>8700709 Thanks for the advice. I was more concerned since when people talk about their comms the lolis seem kind of mean/stuck up. But internet does not equal reality...I should probably leave my apartment more.
>>8700714 Don't worry about it anon, I wasn't much different when I was starting out. Don't overthink stuff too much. Also if you're worried about being ita, don't be. I was ita as fuck for my first few meets and I eventually improved and went on to be the group admin. I sort of wish I could go back and change my first meets, but I did learn a LOT by being surrounded by people who knew what they were doing, so don't be scared off!
Unless you shut yourself out by not engaging or waiting to be spoonfed conversation, or if the comm is excessively tightly-knit, everything should be okay.
>>8699360 I didnt mean to say people cant sew themselves a nice lolita item, its not that hard. I meant not to delude yourself that grabbing grandmas muumuu, belting it, stuffing it with a petti = lolita
>>8700735 How iffy? The proof photo looks well-made and true to the stock, but I do note there is a loose thread. Not about to lose it over one or two small loose threads - but if this brand has a reputation of falling apart...
On another note, can I get recommendations for really full cupcake/bell shape pettis? Nothing looks more unappealing to me than a flat dress and I'd like a very full shape. Which are some of the best?
Translated some chatter on AP Dreamy Jewel announcement, the latest thing in the thread
. Jewelry huh? . Jewelry's here . Yep Jewelry . That jewelry is obnoxious . It looks like garbage . Not cute at all . Jewelry looked ok when I saw it on the model but i was surprised at how crappy it looks on their announcement page . do not want . it looks all jumbled up . The bordeaux is especially gross. The design by itself is pretty nice, what a waste . It would've been nice as a border print. Oh well, I guess I get to sleep in on Saturday for once . It looks like scales . I personally like the katchusha and jsk cut . The motif is cute, like sebon (short for sebon suta-/seven stars girls anime), feels like a waste . The print itself is cute but too much as an all over print, and yeah, looks like scales, especially wine, i'll wait for for bears next week maybe
I made an order on aetherlund's store envy about a month ago. how long does she usually take with orders? I figured I should wait a bit since she may be held up with orders from people trying to get stuff for Halloween but I'm also feeling a bit ansty. I'm just wondering if since it's been a bit of time I should message her or wait a little longer?
>>8700701 220 usd is enough to buy at least two brand dresses if you're so worried about that. I would go for something more simple just because it is your first lolita dress. I bought something OTT for my first dress and felt very weird wearing it and also got a wtf reaction from my family.
>>8700736 Plus the health issues you run the risk of as a result of serious mold problems. I've seen it happen. Black mold is nasty, it destroys stuff, and it stinks. You're also leaving yourself open to getting sick from the cold itself before the mold sets in. If you genuinely can't afford to heat a house, yet are dropping money on Lolita, which isn't cheap, your priorities are messed up. Buy actually warm clothing instead of 'luxury' items.
>>8700763 Yes but idk why you'd want to force it i'd say you'd have to hide the top portion, it's too plain for lolita, cover it with a frilly white bolero also bottom looks plain, so maybe add a slight peek of lacy underskirt don't coord it in an otome way (dont use too much green, go for cream/white/brown for your blouse/bag/shoes) i think BABY stuff would be most compatible poof wont be quite right, will work better if dress is a little long on you
>>8700701 I think you are on the right track with your first dress being a Taobao brand. Nobody looks down on them. Plus, using up all your money on just the dress will be a waste. You will end up an ita with no coord. IMO get cheaper dress, blouse, shoes, etc, everything for a perfect coord on Taobao and make your lolita debut stunningly.
>>8700719 Yeah really depends on where in the NW anon lives. Living in the Seattle area, I was scared shitless of mold getting on my clothes. But if they are more eastern NW it is more of a dry cold. Not much of a mold problem. I dont turn on the heat much either.
>>8699723 >>8700744 I just found out from a friend that it's a VK board with the bangyas (VK fans) so take it with a grain of salt, since they're on the more extreme end of the jp lolita side. Also the slang is hilarious so check out fuckyeahtanuki if you need something to distract you for a while
>>8700701 I actually love to talk to girls about what indie brands they're wearing/liking at meets. I've discovered a ton of things I wouldn't have heard about that way. I wouldn't worry about it. For one thing, that dress you have posted is very beautiful and also really unique/distinct looking, so as long as you coord it right you're going to stand out in a good way compared to if you had a cookie cutter AP or Baby coord. Plus I think Taobao beats out getting babby's first coord from Bodyline, at the very least.
Anyone know of a shopping service they can recommend that is willing to purchase "lucky packs"? Tried to get Japonica to bid on a lot auction of a couple of dresses/blouses/accessories a seller had just lumped together for like $100 but it's against their policy to bid on auctions like that. This would be specifically for mbok.
>>8701114 They seem pretty legit. Got my friend to translate the item description and feedback and it seems legit. The seller has sold lucky packs before and the feedback seems like everything has gone smoothly. I know I am taking a risk in it being a scam but I just want to be irresponsible with my money damnit.
Hey! I'm looking to get into lolita, I'm a dude , but I make a pretty cute crossdresser, done a lot of crossplay. I'm 6'0 and 120 pounds, super slim. I have basically unlimited funds, and I'm looking for brands in the sweet lolita style that may fit me, or styles of dress that will work better for someone of my build.
>>8701351 Innocent World makes long versions of their dresses, but it's more classic or semi-sweet, dunno if that's what you like, but you could check it out? If you're 6' you're gonna have a hard time with normal AP or something. Some people use underskirts, but I don't personally like the look of them...
>>8701351 A lot of sweet dresses are going to be too short for you. Some things can be worn with an underskirt but it doesn't work with everything). Classic or gothic would be easier than sweet, but if sweet is what you have your heart set on, then you'll have an easier time with the more classic influenced sweet from Innocent World or some of BTSSB's styles rather than most Angelic Pretty styles.
Thanks for the all tips! The classic-sweet style of some of Innocent World's stuff definitely fits with my taste.
I'll have to do some digging, and see what's currently available from their website and second hand, the sizing of the long sizes seems about right for me. Hoping to have something together by March.
I'd be open to the idea of some more gothic style lolita, but definitely had my sights set on some of the sweeter stuff for my first coord.
>>8701404 Yeah, pretty much. At the moment, I could be getting a full none off-brand coord a month, and still pay all my bills and eat a totally healthy amount of food. West coast tech jobs pay a lot of the dosh. I dropped out of high school, and college though. So if the tech industry ever crashes, I'm kind of useless.
>>8701351 You may be able to get away with some dresses from Angelic Pretty but you need to keep an eye on the length. They sometimes have "Long" versions of dresses like link underneath. I also heard that the Holy Lantern rerelease is longer than the original dress but not sure of the length. You may also want to alter these dresses, especially the straps. http://lolibrary.org/apparel/mercator-antique-shop-long-jsk
Another route to go down is indie brands and choose tea length dresses or ask for custom sized dresses. With no limits on budget, you have a ton of options.
>>8701437 the OP is supposed to be +10 cm longer than the original release but I think that just makes it more of a normal length - the original release was a bit short, plus the OP is made for really dainty framed people in mind. (though if he's 120 pounds maybe it could work, idk, i still think it would be a bit short though even for him just because he's so tall)
>>8701351 Do yourself a favor and get your stuff custom made. Just because you are thin and can possibly get into some doesn't mean it'll be a good fit. You'll have to go through indie sellers most likely, but it'll be tailored to your male body.
Also, kudos to you for not lying and saying you're some 6 foot amazoness girl. Those posts always make me squint.
>>8701527 I'm a 5'10 male and all of my main pieces are brand. You just need to find the longer length dresses and know what cuts do and don't work on your body.
>>8701351 Honestly apart from height, the only other thing you need to be worried about is shoulder width with blouses and some OPs. As long as total lengths are around the 100cm mark and you invest in a couple good underskirts, you should be fine. Apart from the more recent AP releases, most bust cuts won't have enough space for boobs to be a major fit concern.
>>8701351 Have you thought about joining Rufflechat, Tall Lolitas - Worldwide, and CoF to find advice and inspiration? This place is not a good for resources.
Also consider investing money in stocks if you have unlimited funds. Get a brokerage account linked to a checking account so you can receive passive income from dividends. This is how I pay for lolita.
>>8701359 >>8701404 Yeah I'm also a software engineer and make about 100k a year in the southern US. I only use like 20k a year in food and living, so I have so much money to waste on brand and other hobbys.
>>8702017 That anon was talking specifically about the UK though. I'm German and if someone made a dress with a German flag on it I'd think it's awkward as shit, not to mention people would probably think you're some weird frilly nazi.
>>8702132 Nakamura Asumiko has/had been a regular contributor to the GLB, there's been a couple anthologies published of her short comics there. But yeah, outside of that she's also pretty established in the BL sphere, just got a series made into an anime and all that.
I have a couple of her art books and the illustrations are super nice.
I know it's stupid to complain that "deerstalkers can't act" as they are just a bunch of hobbyists but the constant smiling really annoys me and ruins their videos for me. In every clip of their I've watched over the years, whenever a character is meant to be sad or angry they still seem to be smiling.
I get that they are hanging out with friends and making dumb videos so it must be hard not to smile, but seriously I'm getting aussie smile ptsd.
>>8702170 They aren't doing this as professional videos and more of just a hobby. I like knowing that the acting is bad in that sense you pointed out because it just makes it look funnier I guess? I don't know but in general, Deerstalkers know how to make jokes of things fairly easily.
Can someone here help me decide what coord to wear in front of my coworkers? I have to go to my coworkers show on Saturday night after attending a meet. I don't think I'll have time to go home and change so I'll be stuck wearing either a bodyline dress that looks rather old school or an off brand handmade military dress. They're both OPs. Some of my coworkers are aware of my dressing up and my interest in j-fash, but I don't think they'd expect what it actually looks like.
>>8702294 Ugh, I have to take a bus to get there, and then an uber... I really don't want to lug around an extra bag. I did think about it though. Also I'd have to change in public like in a bathroom or something cause the meet is for an event in a theater.
Also my make up is gonna raise some questions I'm sure. I've gotten the "how come you're all dressed up?" From friends of friends. I was able to brush it off because my friends know all about jfash and can explain it better than I can.
I'm gonna ask about it at work and hopefully they won't have a problem. They've seen me in a pastel bear hoodie before. I don't think they'd be too surprised.
>>8702310 >Different anon but an extra case/bag isn't that much of a hassle. On public transportation it is. One bag is hassle enough, especially if it's crowded, and on a Saturday night, it is definitely going to be crowded.
I know. But I also realise they have a point. There's not really a good word for "dude who sews but not in a professional way". Heck, even seamstress sounds too professional for me, I can sew for myself, but I don't want to rehash the "do you take commissions and why not" conversation everytime I try to say I sew things for myself solely non professionally as a hobby.
Normally when I have a meetup and other things planned for the same day, I choose a dress I can "transform" from nearly-normal to full-on lolita by swapping things around, for eg: - wear a cardi/jacket over it, swap it out for a lolita bolero for the meet - wear a plain OP, put on a lacey underskirt and a dickey for the meet - for an outfit that's fairly streamlined on top, throw on a shawl, scarf, t-shirt, sweater, etc - Keep the hair accessories, jewellery and socks until it's time for the meetup. For socks, you can wear plain ones then change into lolita ones later. - do hair at home and bring only some items to touch up/repair - same with makeup, bring items to touch up/repair (or the darker/brighter stuff to help you go from normal to lolita), minimise what you're carrying
You will need to go through your wardrobe and see which dress you can change the most easiest from normal to lolita, wear that dress.
You will also need to carry a larger bag, but I've found these doable with either the Milk heart bag, the btssb rose cherry bag, the aatp briar rabbit paysage bag. Maybe a nice shopping tote with a few charms/brooches added can work with your outfit?
I'm not the kind of person who care how I usually look, but every time I try to dress up nicely or cosplay it ends with me realizing how fucking stupid I look and me putting on my regular clothes instead. I have friends who aren't afraid of dressing up and I envy them so much. When I tried dressing up for halloween my friends complimented me and even though I know they meant well I just felt worse. At this point, I just don't know what to do anymore.
tl;dr have issues, can't handle compliments which makes me seem like an ungrateful bitch.
Was anyone able to snag Baby's La Belle et la secret de la rose dress? I tried to reserve it, but the yellow colorway sold out as I was checking out. It got re released a few days later but I missed it.
>>8702170 >In every clip of their I've watched over the years, whenever a character is meant to be sad or angry they still seem to be smiling.
This wouldn't happen if lolitas weren't forced to be ~lovelies~ all the time. This is what happens when the community pressures individuals to conform to a standard of ~nice~ behavior. No one can show an honest fucking emotion anymore, and I'm so sick of it.
I'm thinking of leaving lolita to join a group where a full range emotional expression is allowed. Do emos exist anymore?
>>8702569 Exactly the same happened to me. It was gone SO quickly, was it just super popular or were there very few slots, I can't tell? And then for the second round there wasn't even a full days notice, I completely missed it. I'm kind of heartbroken, I've always had good luck with reserves but this dress was for something really special. I wanted it as my wedding dress. Hopefully when it gets released some will make their way to the secondhand markets.
>>8702411 Hey thanks, I just remembered I have a coat that will go with one of my dresses which will suffice if it's an outside event... but I bet it's gonna be inside cause it'd be silly to have an outdoor show when it's this cold.
>>8702830 not too much of an issue for me, I'm just antsy and want to know! I mostly just want to see clearer photos of all the cuts haha. this is a dress that's been on my wishlist for sometime so I'm just being impatient.
>>8700742 I got a blouse from them because I thought the stock photo looked wonderful, but I was very disappointed after a while. The buttons didn't hold and kept slipping through the holes even though the blouse isn't tight at all, as well as the waist ties buttons being inconveniently placed. The edges were rough and the ruffles were bulky.
Any tall lolis out there who own a Roland Jacket? I'm 177cm and I am afraid the lady's version would be too short on me but I am unsure whether the men's version would fit properly? My bust is around 90cm for reference
>>8702926 The lady's version won't even fit your bust, and will definitely be too short in the sleeve unless you have t rex arms. It only goes to 86 cm on most release, 88 if you're lucky and that's without wearing anything underneath. I find it fits me maybe a little tightly with a frilly blouse on on 84cm bust, and I'm 160cm with regular length arms and find the sleeve length good.
>>8702970 I've been lucky enough with my wishlist dresses as they usually don't go for much more than retail but I do understand why a person would want to pay 1~2k dollars for their holy grail dress but this? This is way too much. >inb4 poor jealous fatty ect. Honestly, no. Just find it weird.
>>8702949 >>8702985 >>8702970 Like ya'll, I do find the price way too excessive but after reading what the anon said above about the whole little history about Marionette in my closet, I feel like the dress is more as a collectors item for someone who would want a complete set of that three way collab.
>>8701835 Actual, pre-packed lucky packs? Or the shady "Increasing" lucky packs that sellers assemble, with a vague "I'll add more items once the price reaches the right point!" description in the listing? Because anon is talking about the latter, not the former, and a lot of SS won't bid on those kinds of listings because they're scams.
I want to order an echarpe from pizzicato kei but there's nothing in stock and also nothing in her FAQ that talks about messaging her about comissions/custom orders. can I just drop her line? I don't want to bother her if she doesn't do that/only puts stuff up when she has time.
>>8701152 I currently live in Florida and to avoid the moisture problem, I get those closet dehumidifier things. They can eith be a little bucket you set in the corner or a bag you hang on the door. I've never had any mold or water damage problems while using those.
>>8702301 I would like to join that if it exists. I can't stand reading about someone crying poor about rent/meds/being unemployed/etc and then somehow buying more lolita. Where the responsible lolitas at?
>>8702301 I don't think she really details her personal life too much, but I know octavekitten (tumblr and IG) has some sort of pharmaceutical job. kinda jelly desu. i hope when i get done with school and enter the workforce i can get a nice job and be able to afford all the lolita and swanky events i want to go to :'(
>>8703067 No, professional theater productions don't have volunteers. Tailors, seamstresses and sewers all have different responsibilities/specialities. This is another reason why "sewist" is gaining ground for hobby sewing enthusiasts, since other words have specific meanings. Please google things you don't understand rather than spouting off incorrect assumptions.
>>8703061 Seconding this. I'm fed up with whiny babys clogging my dashboard about how they can barely afford rent but want to buy new releases. If someone creates a group for non-plebs, please post the link.
>>8703350 I'd like to connect with other lolitas that are more mature or have professional jobs tbqh. The childish poorfags are a dime a dozen and it's so hard to form meaningful friendships with 90% of them.
>>8703576 I completely agree anon. Thoughts on where we could make such a group? The only one that I can think of that has decent privacy is google+, but every social network has it's own issues. I don't really trust the small networks either, we really need a separate network like lacebook could have been.
