Essentially what the subject says. Why is it “cringe” now to be tastefully “edgy” in lolita or imitate old GLB? Is cgl just full of roleplayers who’ve never seen a GLB? Are they just trolls? Are they modernfags roleplaying oldfags? Do they just have no taste? Do they not know the history of lolita? Are they just sixteen year olds finding cgl after mommy buys them their first AP piece? Are they just prudes? I really don’t understand.

>inb4 bait
you’re probably too stupid to have a normal and logical discussion about the shift in an entire culture’s attitude if you think this is b8

If people can include instagram handles that'd be helpful, I always want more classic lolitas to follow. Pic related is one of my faves.

I think it's less often the style newbies are drawn too, especially when some of the brands have higher price points and more limited sizes compared to sweet ones.
I've been really happy wearing classic though!

>> No.10157109

Well, I wear this style and I treat it as a daily style, so I like to keep it natural. I don't like feeling too fake, if that makes sense? So that means natural hair and face - of course decently styled - but nothing over the top. As you might guess, things repeat itself with a simple styling over time. People online began to notice and nitpicked as to why I'm so simple and not living to my full potential etc. and it just fucking annoyed me. I don't really care about online validation and that's why I stopped sharing online.

>> No.10157117

I'm a newb who was drawn into lolita because of traditional classic. It's a shame to see it's not very popular but I definitely prefer it to the other styles. Luckily there's another girl in my local comm who is into it too so she is giving me lots of good pointers as I start my collection. I could never get into daily lolita wear because of my job and lifestyle but I would love to have nice classic coords to wear on special occasion.

Thanks for your post!

I understand what you say. I was just trying to find out if something in the style I'm aiming at has been done before. I can't find any.

We are producing a fashion film (commercial) for a sports shoe brand that incorporates a cosplay scene at the end. "Become a Hero" kind of slogan. The story is that the protagonist of the commercial, a cosplay actress, trains hard and she becomes a heroine from a video game and flies off into the sunset.

Be careful, if this is for commercial use you may need to secure the rights to the character your actress will be cosplaying. You may want to use an original character instead to avoid copyright issues.

How do you feel about people who post both their idol stuff and their regular life stuff on the same account vs. having separate accounts? Is cosplay okay to share on idol accounts? Lastly, what about drama; what's the best way to respond to a situation that an idol finds themselves in, and how much detail should they give while responding to the situation?

It's kind of sad to see that there is so much drama going on in the LL community.

I guess since I'm your average dude, I kinda forgot girls could be so catty. Geez

>> No.10156972

In general, you see that kind of thing with Love Live groups more than other groups. Not because they're girls (most of us are and we seem to get along mostly fine), but because 1) it attracts a younger audience, 2) group sizes have to be large by default, so less organization and a higher chance of just taking literally anyone to fill a role, and 3) for a lot of people, it's their introduction to the idol world (or their only knowledge of it). Those three things combined have the potential to cause massive drama and I honestly don't know a LL group that isn't filled with drama. It's what has kept me away from auditioning for any in my area despite really liking the franchise and songs.

I'm too shy/worried about being creepy to talk with someone one-on-one (even if I have an obvious 'in' like our cosplay matching) actually at the convention, be it on the floor or at panels and meetups.
Instead I usually meet people and make friends in groups, and typically I end up getting a crush on one of the girls (even in non con/fandom scenarios). but then:
>am I moving too fast/aggressive?
>will it make things awkward with the rest of the group?
>what if she taken?
>is she straight, even
>you don't even know her, you just think she's cute and you have a couple of surface-level common interests
>relationship virgin in upper 20s and don't even know HOW to ask someone out
Eventually I find a way to talk myself out of a crush.. maybe they post a hot take or otherwise demonstrate they have bad taste or are obnoxious on Twitter and I tell myself "well I guess it wasn't meant to be! Oh well." and go on just being friends with only a very occasional heartstring tug.
In the end, I'm fine being single but that 10% of the time when I feel alone and lonely does get to me.

someday I will post in threads like >>10126853 dammit

>> No.10157045

Protip: the best moment to ask out a girl as the first time you feel as possible romantic connection to her.
You should show that you're interested in her in that way and then workout if you guys are compatible together. I know it feels like a shock to your system at first if they say no but most girls can and will go on to be friends with you fine if they don't feel for you that way.
The casual romantic move becomes a lot less casual after you've been hanging out for a whole weekend or whatever.
Does that make sense?
