My specific request is for a genuine/reliable website that regularly stocks lenses for hyperopia/farsightedness. My friend just got her script and I hadn't realized until looking that the store I usually order from only special orders them but doesn't keep them stocked.
This can just be a general circle lenses thread though! Pic is just a cute pic of circle lenses I grabbed from somewhere, not like the style of lens is related or anything.
Thanks for any recommendations!

>> No.10112383

this should probably be in the general help thread, but i get my lenses from Uniqso.
Used to get them from Pinky Paradise but they started requiring optometrist information and since im not a blind-chan i dont have one.

>> No.10112384

but since your friend actually has a script, either one of those websites would work for your needs (sorry dropped too soon)

>> No.10112391

Thank you! I would recommend against Pink Paradise anyway since they sold me fake I.Fairy’s a few years ago. I really don’t know how they’ve gone this far. Probably good you can’t order from them, you may have dodged an eye problems bullet.
I’ll look into Uniqlo! Appreciate the rec.

And yeah, sorry if I shouldn’t have made a thread for this...I used to lurk and post regularly but I’ve been completely gone for like 2 or more years, so I’m still from the time when there was consistently a Circle Lenses thread haha. That explains why one didn’t pop up when I searched.

this has some good potential for otome. however, that lazy oily hair won't work for anything. the main piece is very attractive, a cropped brown jacket would be so cute here. the nautical themed tights make little sense with the floral embroidery and appliques

I feel like she's failing at shoehorning or legit colorblind. The dress being green and white, and the tights being blue and gold, plus what >>10112352 said about mixing floral with nautical, it's bad enough. She also needs a wig or something. I used to try using my natural hair, but it's thin and oily too and I finally realized that I NEED wigs. I would actually like sauce on that jsk, tho.

The worst part of this is her nasty bedhair. Looks like the friend of a lolita who wanted to "put on one of those pretty dresses", or who got pestered by a newbie lolita friend to wear something and go do a photoshoot.

I hope you all get a good grounding in speaking English correctly so you can be accepted among people who don't so much cosplay as live in the past. There are a lot of mature people in the UK who do the entire old school thing without LARPing at all. My landlord collects clocks, plays the organ embedded in his house, and makes wax cylinders for a living.

I have the same one! I've been thinking of a small magnetic handmirror or something small to do the same with. I'd consider glueing down or temporarily taking out the lil zippers on him though, they have a tendency to fall out as you prob know. I'm thinking white for the bag but a blue to match Sticky Fingers could look nice.
I can't wait for his Potekoro mascots and all the various keychains dropping for him in the next two months!

If your character has absolutely no merch, is it possible to order a rubber charm? Is that a thing I can do, or would I have to make a bulk order of 100 or something and somehow sell off the rest?

>> No.10112416

>What got you involved in itabagging?
I became hyperfixated on one character in a series because it was in a time of a major depressive spell for me and seeing him on screen always made me happy so I started buying more and more merch of him to make me happier. It evolved into a collection and then I found out about itabags and went from there.
>How much did your itabag cost you in total?
Not too sure of the price! I'm bad with keeping track. Probably around a little under $200??
>How much did you estimate/plan on spending when you first started the bag?
I had no plan at all except buy all the merch I could!
>Do you feel like it's worth it?
Absolutely. Seeing him still brings me so much joy.
>What's your dream itabag set up (holy grail charms, how you'd arrange them, holy grail bag etc.)
I don't really have anything like that! Though I do want to get into making rosettes and such because I think it adds a nice touch to bags. I also want to incorporate LED lights.
>If you could change one thing about the scene surrounding itabagging what would it be?
I'm not big with interaction with other people who collect and have itabags! It's really only me in my friend group who does it but it would be nice to meet more people.

Starting topic: Performance opportunities

Do any of you seek out non-convention opportunities to perform? For example, Ice Qream just took part in a one-night concert called Idol Revolution. Do any of you do open mics, shop performances, non-convention festivals, etc? At conventions, do you try and go for main events, masquerades, panels, or hallway performances?

Remember not to respond to bait/"why does this thread exist"/etc. Take excessive drama and vendettas to lolcow.

My group promoted auditions on Instagram with those idol promoter accounts (@netidol.news.reporter, @netidolobsession, and @idol__appreciation are some of them)

How do you feel about giving your group members homework (i.e. having them submit videos of them practicing at home)? It seems like some groups do this and others don't, but the ones that do seem to have better results from what I've seen. It would definitely help groups who don't get together as often, I think.

I think it can be very helpful, especially if the members don’t get to meet up for practise all together as often as they would like to. If you only have one group practise all together before a performance, videos can help everyone get the moves right and then the group sessions can focus more on sync and placements

It's honestly really hard to tell, especially when you're describing that sheer chiffon (it looks faded because it's not opaque). If you look at mainstream fashion runways, a lot of them still feature sheer layered looks, so sheer fabrics at least still seem to be trending, and one of the easiest ways to achieve it is using sheer printed chiffon.

I get that lolita doesn't always go in for the latest fashion fads but Japan as a whole is pretty trendy, so you do get a few things like JetJ doing their own spin on printed artwork dresses (D&G I think?) and I guess we also get sheer dresses, including stuff like devore fabric.

We're never really sure whether polyester sells better or not, whether the customers who prefer polyester actually outnumber the cotton fans or not, since we don't have access to the sales numbers. Chiffon especially has its own appeal for being light and floaty, perfect for a fairytale princess look, which seems to be the "new" lolita look.

Yes, to a degree. Bows that stand upright like the AP one on the left are very sweet in nature and would look out of place in many classic or gothic coords. That said, there are head-eating bows that aren't flat but aren't upright either, like pic related, which imo can fit in any substyle depending on the styling.

>> No.10112366

Sounds unlucky but also might be how you're treating them. Consider your environment humidity/weather and the amount of bending your forcing upon the shoes pleather. If you bend at your toes a lot while walking, you should consider getting leather tea parties instead.
