Yes, I'm the same anon who started the university thread last month. But this time, I would like it if you guys were to share experiences on wearing lolita to university or school, typical reactions you get, and what you typically tend to wear to classes. It would help if you specify your major or department, or what kind of school or college you go to.

I'm planning on wearing lolita for the first time tomorrow to my university classes. My uni is a huge state one and there's all kinds of people, plus people already know me as someone who dresses out of the norm, but it still makes me nervous cause I have no idea what to expect. I'm in my second year as an art major btw.

>> No.9601608

>typical reactions you get
Got compliments/questions, sometimes a passing yelling person if i was off campus, and stares.
probably some secret pics and being made fun off covertly, but nothing that I noticed.
>what you typically tend to wear to classes
as for lolita I used to wear really sweet outfits. even pink wigs sometimes. I never got harassed.
>your major or department, or what kind of school or college
I was liberal arts, at a state school.I live in a pretty liberal state, If that means anything.

I would say start as casual as possible if you are nervous. build up to flasher things when you get more comfortable

>> No.9601609

I go to a big state uni, majoring in psych. I wear sweet, and sometimes classic. People think it's really cute, and it's a good conversation starter for people to come up to me and ask about what I'm wearing. The professors have talked to me about it and seemed really interested and entertained. Of course, you get some strange stares as to be expected. I haven't had a negative interaction yet, though. Don't get lazy and wear ita coords though. Plan your coord the night before or just don't wear lolita if you don't have time to make it look decent.

>> No.9601612

>even pink wigs
I just cringed so hard.

>> No.9601616

I wear a bit of everything; sweet, gothic, classic, ouji, I even mess around in fairy key/menhera.

As a fellow art kid, I've dressed weird in the past and use being an art person as an excuse. It's kind of expected/accepted that people in an art major are going to be a little weird.

I remember telling someone who was curious about my outfit that I was an art major and they replied with, "Ah, that explains it!" and that's typically what most people say after finding it out.

Another thing; people will usually stare/point/laugh/whisper about you more so than they will come up and talk to you. You're gonna have a lot of eyes on you and you'll overhear people talking about how 'weird' you're dressed and then laughing. That's something you just sort of have to get used it, and you eventually will. Usually the people that come up to talk to you are people who like your outfit and want to compliment you.

At least, that's been my experience.

Old thread hit image cap and is almost at bump limit >>9460968

This thread is for ouji and aristocrat (aka "boystyle") discussion. "Boystyle" is shorthand for "boystyle lolita" and refers to the masculine counterparts of lolita and, often, aristocrat fashions. There is a lot of overlap between these styles, and different people use different terms to describe them. So, consider this a thread for those whose style is on the right half of Buttcape's Lolita Family Triangle: http://www.kawacura.com/moripress/wp-content/uploads/2015/06/0dmmLH6-350x350.jpg

What made you intrested in your fashion when you first saw it VS Why you love it now.
For example: It's pretty silly but the reason why i love lolita is because the first coord i have ever seen kind of looked like the dress from Cardcaptor Sakura.
But now i feel like lolita helped me stop being incredibly shy and gave me many chances to meet intresting people

>> No.9601522

I honestly don't remember what made me interested in lolita at first. It reminded me of "gothlolis" in series like Death Note so my edgy weeb babybat self thought it looked cool, but at first I actually thought it looked super weird IRL and was only cute on anime girls. But the more I researched lolita the more absorbed I got...I was so surprised to find out that, not only do real girls wear clothes like this in Japan, you can buy the clothes online and there are shops and whole comms here.

If you asked me why I like lolita now, I'd just say because I love the way it looks. I find most forms of lolita far more beautiful than normal clothes. I don't want to sound all "THIS IS WHO I REALLY AM MOM", but I honestly feel so much more happier and comfortable in lolita than almost anything else. Sometimes when I wear ordinary trendy outfits I feel like I'm putting on a costume, even though I can tell they objectively look normal and good. Wearing lolita feels as "me" as wearing simple basics does. I also like the ability to weave inspiration from different historical eras and interests into my outfits, and I'm unhealthily obsessed with the oldschool subculture/street origins (most other subcultures in my country are almost dead so I feel trapped in past nostalgia).

Pic related is what made me fall in love! The sort of toned down hime look of the coord, the makeup, the color scheme, it was everything I'd ever wanted to look like. (I should note: I liked classic much more when I was starting out. Now I'm a proud cake-wearing sweet lolita. Funny how things change!)

Nowadays, I love lolita because it's so much more exciting than anything I can find at Kohls or Forever 21. Plus, it's really hard to find clothing that isn't too sexy or too mom-like, and isn't some washed out mustard/cayenne pepper/olive green colored thing. (My normie clothes are almost entirely black, white, and pink.) I want my neon pastels, dangit. If the only way I can get them is through jfash, I'm perfectly happy with that.

Another thing, one that's stayed the same throughout the years, is that I majorly prefer the cutesy look. I'm a firm believer that frilly clothing and pastels aren't for children exclusively, and I will continue wearing them for as long as I feel like it.

The high waist part is floppy and unboned, which doesn't help that the flare isn't at their natural waists. There is also not enough fabric gathered. The white lace doesn't match and seems to be eyelet? which is an odd choice.

I also like the fabric and don't care what it was in a previous life, but that doesn't mean there aren't lots of other problems. I also would center the panels and not put the ugly seam at center front.

Yeah cosplay is indeed based off of anime, but I think they meant that they were looking for things more related to board culture than actual anime and stuff. Heroes of cosplay is an example.
Even though Heroes of cosplay was a shit show that was basically rejected by most of the community, I was entertained by the drama. Even though it's probably an unpopular opinion, I wish something similar could be made from the idea of HOC. Everyone just wants so much of the hug box side of it that they're afraid to stray away from that so the shows come off as boring (cosplay melee) IMO.
But then again I'm kind of a fan of the reality show type of shows so maybe it's just me.
If you could make a show about cosplay, lolita or Jfash, how would you do it?

>> No.9600957

To add to this I think a RuPaul's drag race format would kind of be a good medium between heroes of cosplay and cosplay melee.

Ex. Idol anime theme week where they separate contestants into teams and they have to make outfits and choreography for a song. Blizzard week where they recreate Blizzard characters.
Cash and prizes could be sponsored by gaming and other companies who can help decide those themes.

I appreciate your love for the [email protected] community, but I really don't think doing the whole tux, wig and business card thing is going to work out that well if you are going alone. As someone said previously, being in a group with other [email protected] cosplayers is a great way to spot you and more importantly the foam P head is the greatest way. Last year at my local con someone cosplayed as Producer-san with the P head and every time I saw him many people were shouting his name. I think if you really love [email protected], you should take the time to watch first season with the 765 pro girls, maybe if you can even deal with Japanese try out the mobile game. It would really show if you put the effort into the costume and took it an extra step.
