anyone here ever just use cosplaying as an excuse to dress up in the wildest outfits or costumes you can instead of dressing up as actual characters?

>> No.10845790

Kind of. On time I attended a con as a knight and another as a samurai, and people would ask me what character I am and then I'd say, 'just a knight' or 'just a samurai.'
I'm not that into cosplay, I just really wanted to make those outfits for some reason and had nowhere else to exhibit them than a con. They were too delicate for LARP.

Do you guys remember this golden age of /cgl/ cooperation?

I was looking for a pattern when this questionable picture came up in the search. I took a closer look and HOLY SHIT if that's not Lovely Horse Derpy Chan just THERE on the official Simplicity pattern site. Whoever slipped that past them is a real one.

tl;dr The lolita horse /cgl/ immortalized is on an official pattern site.

I currently dress classic/OTT classic or old school and am happy with the way I look for now, but I’m getting older I have been rethinking my style. Wondering what you all plan on “graduating” to after lolita. Leave completely and go normie? Go vintage like Candy Violet’s Vivcore? Incorporate lolita pieces with vintage like Fanny Rosie? Historybounding? Larme Kei?

It strikes me as very odd...it's a fashion style, not a school that you "graduate" from. It's weird to anticipate and plan a change in your personal styles and tastes. I went through a lot of fandoms as a kid and teen, and I never decided "hmmm yes after this cartoon then I will get into this anime." It just happened.

>> No.10845828

It’s a term used more in ganguro/gyaru fashion. Japanese young adults tend to give up on subculture-type fashions when they “get too old” (ie. over 25) there does seem to be a lot of pressure to grow up and act like an adult over there once you are in your twenties. Pressure which can become toxic and lead some people becoming hikikomori or if they are lucky enough to have a strong personality, just regarded as eccentric (though the latter are usually either famous or other creative self-employed, so have a way of making a decent income without having to give up their personal style no matter how quirky or weird it seems to outside society).

>> No.10845832

I don't plan on ever leaving sweet lolita again. I left it for some time thinking I was too old for it. I sold the majority of my golden era AP, wore aristocrat and gothic, regreted that decision and dove head first into it all over again. Milky Planet is what made me fall in love with lolita in the first place and as beautiful as gothic is it doesn't spark joy like OTT sweet does. I'm already in my early 40s so fuck it I will wear 2009-2011 Angelic Pretty into my 80s. I will live my pastel-haired kooky granny life to the fullest.

While I still enjoy it, I mostly now just shoot for friends/less popular cosplayers. A few of us photographers actually do have our own group chats, and its pretty civil and we don't really shit talk other models, we actually hype eachother up. The cosplay chats i've seen though are pretty fucking vicious.

It was an unexpectedly fun con, the flyover was dope. Azur Lane people were cool and was fun to nerd out with some naval/aeronautic otaku. Was nice to see other series you normally don't see a whole lot of at regular cons be more predominant.

I think all of this is just a result of a bunch of boomers being super happy that their charity-based museum ship was given a ton of publicity and donation possibilities. The fact that they were lax on covid hysteria despite Alameda being extremely draconian even for liberal bay area standards sorta proves that. Sometimes boomers are a'ight.

Just choosing the one you like the most might be unsatisfying, because as someone who is also between styles that seems to change day by day for me. Trying to find a meeting point between the three that still appeals to your tastes could be an option. That being said, contrast isn't necessarily bad, it just needs to be carefully thought out. If you really want everything to be matchy though I'd suggest choosing a common color scheme that can still incorporate motifs and details that suit each style (ex. dark color scheme but really girly feeling decor/details). Adjusting how sweet-leaning or how classic/gothic-leaning your room appears would probably depend on the colors or details you choose.

To use myself as an example, my choice of decor is admittedly easy to balance since I'm a sweet & classic lolita and I love pastels & floral motifs in both styles. I have a lot of light colored, sweet-friendly items (like super pink bedding & pillows, stuffed animals, sanrio merchandise/cutesy knickknacks, mostly white furniture) that I like to balance out with more classic-friendly items. My desk, mirror and jewelry box are all dark wood, I have an antique tea cart that I like to display items on and use for storage, a lot of my wall decor is more landscape & flower paintings/vintage postcards, and most of my storage containers can be considered a little more classic than sweet (again, simple, delicate florals on light colored backgrounds on things like boxes, pen containers, etc.)

tl;dr mixing decor themes can be done well, it's really all about doing it carefully and taking into consideration how the items you choose balance each other out. If you're okay with things not being super matchy, cool, but think carefully how your decor interacts with other items you own.

I get the feeling most lolitas tend to stick to one substyle and update their wardrobe when they shift to a different one, but how many of you just collect what dresses you like, regardless of style?

Does anyone buy only dresses with a particular theme or gimmick?

Are there any dresses you had to have even if they didn't match anything?

Do you have a weird blend of styles in your closet, or one of those perfect capsule wardrobes?

Pic related, my wardrobe is gothic but I love the fast food gimmick.

>> No.10845306

I love a lot of different colours and themes so my wardrobe lacks cohesiveness. I accept that I'll never have a "truly" Sweet, Oldschool, or Gothic wardrobe like in the really lovely aesthetic pictures - so my issue is moreso versatility and coverage of all those colours/themes. This does mean needing to have a slightly larger wardrobe though, and less options for some of my dresses.

In fact for my solid colour pieces (which is most of my wardrobe) I keep a spreadsheet. So I don't have more than 1 black JSK, or white SK, or pink/white OP. Maximises my options.

I saw a YouTube video from a lolita who ONLY has mint chocolate dresses. I thought it was amazing how focused she was on such a specific style and how happy she seemed to wear it!

I guess my biggest problem is that I change styles based on season. Maybe I should have some decor that can be replaced in spring/summer and fall/winter? Idk, maybe I'll go for a vintage aesthetic since I love grandma-type shit. Much to think on.

>> No.10845380

Yeah, rotating decor based on the season is an option too! Though depending on how much you want to rotate out seasonally, that could pose a storage problem if you have limited space.

100%. Met my GF in college, same age as me. She still gets mistaken for high school/college sometimes, always petite including face. I look young-20s. We're both early 30s.
We just go and enjoy ourselves and have the funds finally to actually cosplay right. No one bats an eye, and we aren't creeps (both /fit/ and hygenic, just got for the fun, etc). We've had no problem just being part of the fun crowd, joining up with random cosplayers, all that good stuff. My brother is about my age, and he's just an obvious lovable fat nerd with his husband, super inoffensive and magnetic personality so everyone just loves the shit out of him no matter age.
Meanwhile I see mid-20s dudes who obviously don't take care of themselves, walked out of their man-cave in their moms basement for the first time in 3 years, greasy dudes with 0 social awareness creeping everyone out. And then I see a literal Rick Grimes lookalike to the point I thought it was Andrew Lincoln, like literal 100% identical, and he was cool as shit and everyone loved him.

Fair enough. Of course, what you're describing is much worse, but it also seems region-specific.

Not a good look for either one, and yes, how mainstream a series gets seems to correlate with that perfectly.

I have one pair of AP ones as well that I was clueless what to do with as well. I use them to pull back the section of hair behind my ears. I looked up a video of how to use hair combs first. You put them in almost opposite of how you think you would to get them to stay. I can try to find the video again if you'd like. It wasn't a lolita specific video, just ones about regular hair combs, but I found it helpful for getting them to stay in my hair. I leave some hair framing my face and then have the bows pull a small section back up and away from my ears. I don't have any pictures. I hope this helps.

how would your ed show? Your ed is not your weight. If someone is underweight that could be for other reasons. Sure people could assume it's because of AN instead of some other health issue.
If you don't show any ed behavior (body checking, purging, etc) or talk about your ed or do any weird typical red flag AN stuff like go on rants about how fucked up it is that people consider granola to be health food or that anyone above bmi 18 is grossly overweight, etc, you should be fine.

I think there could be a place for content that talks about EDs and j-fashion/lolita in the same context, but obviously not in a pro-ED way. There was a lolita who talked about becoming healthier after going to therapy for emotional eating, although I don't remember her name. That was pretty well received but be careful about posting personal stuff online, even if you choose to talk about it in a recovery focused way it can follow you. Once you put it online it's no longer in your hands.
