By your logic, being cool only requires that you look active, not that you are active. That doesn't sound very cool. There are plenty of inactive, unenergetic people dressed like lumberjack bikers; and there are plenty of lolitas who engage in vigorous and perhaps (to outsider crossboarders such as yourself) idiosyncratic types of activities.

Looking 'cool' by society's standards is just going with the trends while maybe putting a little bit of your own flair in there.

If the mainstream trend was lolita, sure, we'd all look cool. But it isn't. Perceived masculinity and femininity have zero actual consequence as to whether one looks cool or not.

But shame on me for taking the bait

>> No.10001113

I love lolita so much, but i'd give it up if it meant I could have a nice family to take care of. Sadly, I had a chance at that once but was brutally destroyed when my husband of one year cheated on me (we had been together 8 years before getting married). since then I haven't really met any men who are single or who have their lives together. Sad.

At least I have lolita I guess. Thanks for making me waste my time on nothing, asshole.

Thanks, anon. It's really disheartening sometimes. Like, had I gotten into what I loved ten years ago, I'd have so many experiences and fun times to look back on. But I'm stuck in the present with nothing to show for myself and I have even less time to enjoy my hobbies. When does it get easier? I'm just going to keep trying (what else can I do?) but the passage of time slowly wears me down.

>> No.10001305

just remember that you can either sit here and waste the future by regretting the past, or you can force yourself to actively use the present to experience things before you're no longer able to. I really feel the same as you, and it's a huge struggle sometimes, but we can never get time back. it only goes forward. so we have to do our best to let the past go and work on the present so we don't have to continuously regret the past. it's so hard for me some days... but you just have to keep going.

28 year old daily lolita here: Wear what you want, it's alternative fashion that's meant to be subversive and challenge social expectations, and also make you happy.
You can change your styling and makeup to look more "mature" to suit your current look and level of comfort, or straight up convert to classic if you feel uncomfortable in sweet, or drop the fashion altogether if you don't like it anymore - The point is, you can do whatever makes you happy but at 24, you're definitely not too old for it.

I'm also 24. You're not too old to wear lolita. Just enjoy yourself.

>> No.10001339

Some of the most popular lolitas are in their late 20s or even 30s. 24 is no age at all. Moisturize, avoid the sun, don't smoke and keep hydrated at all times. If you are not some genetic hideous abnormination you will look young until you're 30 and then you can slowly progress into more mature styles if you want (or not give a fuck and continue dressing in the styles you like because at some point in your life you will stop giving a shit about COF or insta likes).

>> No.10001341

I'm also here to tell you you're not too old. I started wearing lolita when I was 25. I wear sweet, hime, and OTT. I hate ageist stereotypes.

The only bad thing about getting into the fashion "late" is that you always feel like you have so much catch-up to do. For instance, I buy, on average, a dress or two a month because I feel like I need to accrue a wardrobe faster. Realistically, we have less time than someone who started when they were 18 or 20. But I have many years left to enjoy the fashion. As far as I am concerned, there's no "stop" date. I'll probably be the weird grandma that bathes in glitter and dresses in vintage Angelic Pretty.

Thanks! The Sax x Pink is my favorite. The JSK is my favorite cut, too. I want to get it in every colorway eventually.

Toy Fantasy is actually my preferred print, but I've been thinking about buying Toy Parade recently. I absolutely love the giraffes and elephants on Toy Fantasy- they help make it one of my favorite prints. I only have the JSK set but I've slowly been collecting all of the matching jewelry. Were you the one who bought the pink headbow off fril?

>> No.10001370

Haha, yes! That was 100% me. I snagged the pink JSK off CC a few months ago (NWT, I was so excited) and needed the headbow. I originally got the sax colorway and fell in love with the little giraffes and bubbles. So then I decided to get it in every colorway (except black). The new one I got was the white x pink JSK. I would love to find the jewelry too.

As for Toy Parade, I eventually want to get the JSK in white, but I'm far less obsessed with it.

I really hope you can get your preferred colorway one day of Colorful Sherbet! If I liked older solids, I'd be all over that dress too.

Stop. Just stop for a second. You are a human being. The first person you should reapect and look out for is yourself. Your wellbeing in this moment comes first. You are in a relationship that clearly makes you feel inadequate and sad. This is not your fault. Your partner lacks empathy and does not care about you or your emotions like she should. It seems you've already brought this subject up with her and she was more concerned with her own desires than your feelings. This is not a partner that cares about you.
It won't get better. She is not going to stop behaving this way and you are going to continue to feel like the second fiddle. You can make the choice now to end the relationship and move on to someone who respects you, or to stay with a girl that makes you feel this way. The strain on your relationship will only get worse.

My best friend has turned into a monster because of cosplay. She only got into it a few years ago, and even then it was solely for entering competitions instead of doing it for the fun of it. Now she's completely obsessed with online fame and focused on nothing but facebook page likes and people feeding her ever-expanding ego. I feel like she rode my coat-tails enough as an established cosplayer in the community to get what she wanted, and the second she began eclipsing me she threw me away.

She's ruined so many wonderful conventions and cosplay opportunities with me with her awful attitude and selfish personality. The worst part is that even though she's a horrendously sore loser and really mean to people she doesn't like, she's a 'darling' of the community because her (very fake) public persona is so overly sweet. She keeps doing incredibly petty shit and the worst part is that she no longer wants anything to do with me because she wants to work 'solo' and 'expand her brand'.

I just want my goofy, funny and lighthearted friend back, not the fame-hungry mean person she became the second her fb page got thousands more likes than mine.

Someone who's jealous and/or bitter, obviously. Well adjusted adults would either not comment because they don't care, or cheer you on/praise you for donating to a stream you all enjoy. Maybe she thought you were showing off your wealth or something. Were they all younger than you?

Not sure if anyone cares, but I'm the suicidal anon from the previous thread who was worried about her parents.
My mother criticized me for my lolita stuff. I asked if she wants me to throw it all away, and she said no. So I told her there's no point in her nagging, since the clothes aren't going anywhere.
Then she tried to box it all up and hide (?) it, I said I preferred to leave them on hangers. She finally stopped.
She's probably going to start this again and again many times but she's giving me a rest for now. I wasn't a smooth experience but everything went better than I expected.

I'm also wearing lolita a lot since I got a mental health break for treatment and have a lot of free time.

Start tracking your food calories and exercising

Your body only releases about 20 calories per day per pound bodyfat
So let’s say you’re 180lb and 30%fat
You’ve got 54~ lbs adipose tissue
X 20= 1080
So you can lose as much as 1000 calories a day before you start burning muscle
1lb of fat is about 3500-4000 calories so at a -1000 calorie deficit you can lose 2 lbs a week

I don't know if I'm just getting old and cranky, but my god I'm so sick of Lolita fashion rules and people getting so pissy about them. It's gatekeeping. I know we really don't want to admit it, but posting people's less-than-perfect coords to an imageboard to laugh about them is really shitty. I'm not innocent, I've participated in ita threads, but in the last two or three years I've started to realise how fucking weird and not normal it is.

I've never known anything like it in any other fashion I've dabbled in through the years. I don't post coords online and haven't for a few years because I enjoy what I wear but know that it'd maybe be a field day for someone to post somewhere since they're not always instagram-worthy coords.

Why are we so set in our ways? I've been wearing the fashion for about ten years or so and while I've seen it change a lot, it's still really rigid and I've found myself gravitating towards other styles because I've gotten sick of the formula, and I really never thought I'd say that. I've started wearing a lot of goth/nugoth stuff and I don't know if the standards are just lower or what, but nobody's gonna post you to an anon imageboard and bitch and moan about how the shades of black you're wearing don't match, or if your makeup isn't perfect. Not saying it doesn't have its own brand of gatekeeping, but that's another story I guess.

Sorry, this turned into a bit of "old lolita yells at cloud", but I guess I've needed to vent about it. I'm also not trying to excuse itas who try to make dresses out of bedsheets or order from Milan00, that's like trying to make denim jeans out of polycotton and crying that nobody thinks its a good idea.

Agree desu. My probably silly opinion is that you need a lot of effort to wear lolita (e.g. understanding what's good and what isn't, coordinating, learning to use a shopping service, auctions etc). Oftentimes the people who put that effort in, spending a lot of their time thinking about lolita, aren't mentally healthy. If you read this board you will agree (ana, hikikomori, depressed people...). And being aggressive is one of the possible outcomes of not feeling good. Especially if you have a low self-esteem. Laughing at people who dress worse than you can make you feel better. Having others that laugh with you can make you feel part of a group, especially if you're lonely IRL. I never take part in any thread that makes fun of others. Maybe it can feel good for a while but in the end, it only makes you miserable.

>Why are we so set in our ways?
>implying the tards posting nitpicks in the ita threads aren't newbs, itas, and lolitas at heart themselves
Look, I've been into the fashion for a decade myself and I was ita myself, and I'm nowhere near as bothered by this as you are. The nitpicking can get tiring, sure, but that's why I mostly just stay in my own lane and enjoy the fashion in my own little corner of the world.
Also, no one gatekeeps by posting people here. If these comments were left on people's pics on social media then I'd agree with you but unless someone comes to cgl's ita thread to see what goes on here, they won't know what's happening, and if they do that and then pitch a fit about it and leave the fashion because some anons were meanies, then they probably have a too thin skin anyway and shouldn't go on 4chan in the first place.

In some ways things have become worse as OTT styling crept in and pushed up the levels of what’s expected to look good. Things come across in numerous online circles that you’re a mess if you don’t have anything but flawless professional standard makeup, photos taken on expensive cameras with have fashion modelling levels of editing, and a really elaborate themed coord with everything but the kitchen sink on. Even though irl it’s not as bad, thimgs do come across that way. I’ve seen in the nearly ten years I’ve been about for how simple, mature coords such as Fanny’s are blasted as too normie and/or uncreative on an increasing amount. There’s a toxic, highly self entitled and overly bitchy attitude to too many lolitas, and I agree with you about the way that lolitas tear into each other online. Yes, it’s not exactly the simplest of fashions or the most casual, and a degree of put togetherness is needed, but... it’s too much in terms of the backlash that you receive if you’re less than the perceived expectations of perfection. Things have gone too far and the gatekeeping going on makes it very unwelcoming. Truth be told I’m fed up ofthe attitudes pervading the wider community, which is why I’ve left it. I’ll stick with my simpler, apparently boring and samey coords, and not post photos thanks.

Everyone is free to wear black clothes and makeup if they want to, the issue arises when people appropriate the label goth to refer to themselves when they don't listen to goth music. It's kinda like lolitas at heart that may know a lot about the fashion on a theoretic level but know fuck all about actually wearing it; knowing a lot about the fashion doesn't make one lolita, just like wearing black clothes and lipstick doesn't make one a goth by default.

But they don't listen to goth music, they're misusing the label. That's all there is to it. They can wear dark shit if they want and that would make them darkly inclined, not goths.

Also I realize I worded my post weird. The comm obviously can’t police what you wear at every meet. But at ticketed meets, they enforce dress code. And part of their dress code is that you can’t wear replica main pieces.
I’d feel bad letting her pay scalped prices for a shitty replica and only being able to wear it to conventions and park meets, when she could buy nice things from indie brands and be able to attend princess-like tea parties.

Maybe you need to show her some pretty things from Indie Brands and Taobao that would fit? But it sounds like she's being an idiot about it, unfortunately you may end up having to let her make her mistake and then learn from it

This is the correct answer.

Is she too big even for AP's largest dresses? Please don't let her support that industry. Don't give up anon. Don't let her blame AP for catering to their market because it makes business sense.

If you have an 8k wardrobe, how about you go shopping in your own closet for a while and make do with what you have?

>> No.10003941

It's funny, I actually tend to switch between only a few main pieces for daily wear, it's not that I'm unsatisfied with the size of my wardrobe or have a lot of dream pieces I'm still hunting down. It's more that the act of buying in itself has become a coping mechanism for me at this point, I do logically recognize I don't actually need more stuff. I do see your point, though.

this, the whole concept of "posing" within a culture when literally everyone is posing inside that culture is so retarded. At the same time I just don't really understand the desire to belong to group of any kind so I also can't appreciate a possible flipside, since it all looks like posing to me
