If you know what you're doing and use high quality materials, of course. There are even pattern books specific for lolita fashion. I suggest you look at and lurk in the handmade threads, I believe a gull posted some translated scans of otome no sewing in the most recent one or the one before that.

My ex was so bad for me but I still miss her sometimes. Sometimes I feel like maybe it wasn't her fault that she used me the way she did. She had mental health issues and I tried to be rescuer, I kind of set myself up to be used and cheated on. As time goes by, I forget more and more what the bad times of our relationship were like. I think of the the good parts and feel like maybe it wasn't that bad overall, or maybe it only seemed that bad because I was struggling too.

I think about contacting her sometimes. She would love that, according to our mutual friends. She's also a goth and apparently thinks lolita is really cool. I'm not sure if I really miss her though or whether I'm just thirsty for girls and miss the friendship we had as well as our relationship. I'm in a relationship with a guy now and it's all good and mostly healthy, but I still think of her more than I'd admit to anyone.

Just a reminder:
>The really cool or well known lolitas in your comm? They're not celebrities, not even the "efamous" ones. They're nerds in frills too so talk to them and maybe you can be friends.
>Joining a new comm can seem scary but most lolitas will be really happy to see you and if you're struggling with the fashion they may be willing to help.
>That person on social media whose posts you love? DM them. If you have interests and opinions in common, they're probably cool. They'll never know that people admire them and want to be friends unless those people talk to them. And if you're at the same larger event, swallow your shyness and say hi!
In between people's public personas, social anxiety, and all the generalising talk about "is this comm nice" or "wasn't she involved in drama 5 years ago", it's easy to forget that we're all individuals in love with this same weird fashion. Lolita can be crazy and dramatic, but it's also a great way to have a lot of fun experiences and make friends with interesting and creative people. There's nothing wrong with being a lonelita or a private person, but if you want to be part of a comm or make friends with someone, please consider reaching out. Chances are, you'll have a great time. You'll never know if you don't try, right? I believe in you, anon. You can do it.

>Is he one of those people who would never want to move to a new country
Sadly so, he doesn't see the joy in having to learn a whole new language just to live somewhere, and thats totally fine, but it does put a damper on things.

Well see his plan is that I wait some years for him and I to be financially more secure so that way when I go he can visit once every couple months or so. Which is reasonable I believe, but my body is shouting at me to just leave.

The idea is that I would go for a year probably max and then come back to the states to wherever we decide to live here (since we both do want to move out of our shit town)

If you're talking about lolita, you won't find those. Deep necklines aren't a thing in this style, or at least they're very uncommon. Square necklines are easier depending on the substyle you prefer; Baby's square neck blouses, for example, are fairly easy to find secondhand and they're great if you like sweet and old school. There are square neck blouses in other styles too of course, just less common.

Earlier in the year I was chatting to another anon who had health issues too but unfortunately after not receiving message notifications and assuming they hadn't replied, we lost contact.

As someone who has dealt with depression all their life and tried their hardest to not use medication unfortunately some need it. I really wish I didn’t because I feel ashamed that I depend on chemicals to function. I don’t advocate its use unless it’s a final resort.

I'm living your dream, but I was smart enough to hold off on boyfriends or marriage before moving over. I say take a break from him and move over for a 6 month contract. If he's so great for you he can respect your dreams. If you like it in Japan, add on a year. After you realize that it's a real job, you can get discouraged and move home or tough it out and stay a few more years. It's not a forever career and you will not live here indefinitely, so make the most of your youth and try it.

Hey, thanks for actually giving me some feedback.
I haven't visited South Korea yet, but I've visited Japan, 90 days at a time. Had some relationships (short-lived, however) there and the men there are just so off and the ones I dated were all fairly young. I also know a lot of girls who date men there and the men just cheat on them like crazy, girl after girl. Maybe not all men there are like that, sure, but I just don't see the appeal with the way they act and the chance of them being unfaithful. It's not really a conservative thing, it's just an in general thing. Treating women like shit doesn't necessarily mean abusing them. Cheaters are everywhere, especially when they're with foreign women.
That might just be Japan, though. South Korea could be different, but I haven't experienced it personally like I have with Japan and haven't met anyone who has experienced it.

If your problem was that men in Japan cheated constantly, I don't believe that has anything to do with their culture. Men (and women) cheat just as much in the west and literally anywhere else....so framing it as a culture problem is disingenuous IMO. However it was what you experienced so I sympathize with what you went through. Stereotypical Asian culture IS conservative. We're supposed to keep up our appearances, the man is supposed to make money, the woman needs to have kids, and if the man wants to exert his power over the family so be it. This is the attitude that I saw first hand that is changing with the newer generations.

Yet I'm somehow not surprised that Japan is decidedly worse for dating. If I were to make an educated guess it has to do with the negative birth rate and the pushback against marriage in lieu of pursuing a career. I could see that turning into a nasty attitude against women, since the dating pool is dwindling only the worst kinds of guys are left.

Tell me gulls, is it wrong for me to want to hang out with cute girls at cons?

In my mind, I don't want to feel like that kind of shallow guy that just goes to cons to pick up girls, yet I still want to just hang out with girls almost exclusively.

Do I expect something to happen when I hang out with them? I don't know, I just want to meet with new people and see where that leads us. If we click, that's fine, if we don't that's fine as well.

tl;dr I don't want to feel like a creeper just because I like to talk to cute girls.

I'm currently at the beginning of my bachelors degree of my native language and will probably study journalims to go with it. Obviously other fields take part a lot in our courses and I'm sure some of them are studying journalism and their bachelors degree surely includes grammar and writing courses. Apparently you are American but I'm still confused why would such an important thing as grammar be part of your masters and not bachelors?

Look, I know what you mean when you say your scentences are just "intuitively correct", and I know a lot of native language speakers think/feel the same way.

It’s obviously not going to be le epic loli flashing pantsu big oppai hentai whatever, but cultural things I see in anime all the time like work/salaryman culture and dynamics, festivals and events, etc, it’s all pretty much about right.

I've noticed some surge in newbies and outsiders bitching about the name lolita on social media, demanding that it should be changed into a variety of retarded terms that are supposedly "better" even though they aren't even involved in the fashion and its name doesn't concern them whatsoever. But as upsetting as it is to see people forcing their opinions on a subculture they don't participate in and don't understand, there's some sort of tranquility in dressing up in something that makes me feel beautiful in spite of people's screeching.

I ordered some items from a semi-prominent jfashion accessory store and they took 6 weeks to ship. The custom items are advertised as only needing 2 weeks to make after ordering. I wouldn't have minded the wait at all except the item was listed as 'in stock'. When I contacted the owner about the delay in shipping they said they sometimes list stock incorrectly and yjeir real make-time is actually 10 - 21 business days and they won't start until the payment is made. Except I paid right away and 10 - 21 days to make an item is still only 4 weeks, not the 6 it actually took to post it.

I really want to leave negative feedback on the listing because all the items are advertised as 2 weeks, and this is the kind of feedback I think needs to be out there, but I want to order items again and I'm worried they won't sell to me again if I leave a negative review.

The product is fine, I just want a realistic wait time on things I order. In fact if I had known it would take 6 weeks to get my shit I would have ordered in bulk instead of thinking ' oh I'll just order the one and if I want more later it will get here pretty quick'.

Frustrating to think I'm going to probably not be able to buy more for being honest about what happened when the Seller is the one advertising false times on all their stock - if it's correctly listed in the first place!

That's true, how they handle it is more of a reflection on them but they got quite defensive when I started pushing that they were misleadingly advertising their products and times and, I honestly didn't care how long it took, I just would have appreciated honesty because *I would have bought more* if I'd known it was going to take almost 2 months to get my stuff instead of just 1 pair of earrings.

DESU I think they forgot about my order. I heard nothing for weeks and then the seller advertised the store on a facebook group and I replied to their post how excited I was to be getting items and BOOM two days later I was messaged back with tracking details. Like they'd gone 'I don't have any orders atm, that's why I'm advertising - wait what order do I have under this person's name? CRAP'

I'm in a similar situation. The work I want to do isn't possible in most of the Western world, and Japan is frontrunner in it. I'm gonna finish my study in Tokyo by working there a half year, so I can see if it's something I want to do or not. With some luck I can get a contract afterwards (which isn't unusual and has happened to people from my school before on the previous time this happened).

I want to move for my dream job if I can take the social and working environment, but my bf has very different dreams in life and want's to stay here and build a simple life close to the things he knows.

Right now he just hopes I dislike Japan, but honestly I'm not sure that will happen. If I like Japan and can get a job, it's going to be hard decision making time. He won't be happy giving up what he wants in life, and I won't be happy staying here while I could pursue my dream. We won't be happy seeing each other unhappy either. But we also wish to be together. But if I want to stay in Japan afterwards, it'll probably mean a break up...

Also, if you're some weeb who things Japan is all great magic anime land you're in for deep trouble. Japan has pros and cons, but it's not going to be an all great place to life where everything is great. The way of socialising is different so you'll need some strong capability of adapting, work means long hours and high expectations, and most foreign English teachers are treated like shit because there are so much weebs who do it you're replaceable anyways. It's not the best job if you want a nice working environment. I'm also not sure if it counts as a high level job, and without that visa and emigration are hard as well. It's also expansive, so unless you come from an expansive country already be ready to pay a lot or live in shitty places. If you are realistic and can get trough it it can be a beautiful country, but if you're a weeb who thinks Japan is all great and where he/she belongs you're gonna have a strong wakeup call

I don't think all men are bad, it's just very different. It's not like all man beat up there wives and such. Some do, it's defiantly more common, and people do turn a blind eye more quickly, but it's not like it's the norm for everyone. Many men love their wives.

I've spoken to multiple Japanese woman and men. It seems more average that men, yes, do expect more typical roles in relation ships (and honestly, so do many woman. Sure there are ones fighting against it, but it's a minority). Woman stay home, take care of the children, the house, the cooking. Men work all day. You don't say thank you much unless it's above average what the other did, because you just do your part. But if you see the average Japanese working days, I think it's kinda understandable that they'll only work to be honest.

Not saying I would want that kind of relation. Really, I don't. I dislike cooking and I want to work myself and do stuff of my choice. But in most cases it's not that they treat woman bad, it's that they look to relations very different and for most, that way of relation is all they know beside maybe some stuff on media from the West (which they rarely have seen in real live beside maybe some tourists).

I dislike how (online) lolita has became more and more unoriginal. 90% of the looks you see are all constructed the same. I guess people found a way of coordinating that looks good and decided to stick with it. And it does look good indeed, I'm not saying it's bad or anything... but in the long run it's boring, at least to me. Most of the people that try something different get made fun of, too. Or maybe receive advice that tells them what changes they should make in order to follow the trend. I browsed through some old GLBs and gosh were they more creative and innovative. Now if someone tries something like that has good chance of getting posted in the ita thread. I'm also sad that (online) lolita is less and less a street style, but more of a special occasion look. If you try a more """normal""", everyday look, you get told it's not lolita but otome or casual lolita, or maybe straight out ita. People keep telling how lolita should not be mistaken for a costume but honestly that's what it looks to me, sometimes. And not quality speaking - of course quality is exquisite blah blah blah. But for many (online) people it's something you wear to special events and only with special friends. Just like you wouldn't wear a Cinderella costume to have an ice-cream with a friend, you wouldn't wear a "complete lolita coord" to a normal evening out. This was just a rant btw, I'm not saying the totality of lolita is like this at all. But a part of it is and I just don't like it much.

Nah, there is tons of variation imho. It's just an established style. It's made from certain components because those components are what makes the style the styles. Without it, it's another style.

>I browsed through some old GLBs and gosh were they more creative and innovative
Lolita was still developing into a style, and all streetfashion styles where. There wasn't a real definition for any yet. The terms just became more defined as people had time to figure out what is what, which is handy for finding similar things or items made for the look you want. It's logic it happens, and the other things still exist, they just aren't called lolita anymore.

>Now if someone tries something like that has good chance of getting posted in the ita thread
Only if they look bad. Good old-school is still loved by many, and when some newfag posts it it'll always get pointed out with something like "sorry you're too new to know old-school" or something like that.

Here I don't. I wear it casually. Often enough with way less or no accesouries and simple, easy to wear outfits. No one ever told me it's not lolita but otome, nor have I been called ita or posted here. I've only been called boring once, which I can understand for a daily coord between OTT ones on CoF. I do agree people call too much things otome too quickly, but I do believe things can be distintive lolita still.
>or maybe straight out ita
Only if you look bad or you've got way out of the bounds of the fashion, but that get's back to the first few points.

>People keep telling how lolita should not be mistaken for a costume but honestly that's what it looks to me, sometimes
>But for many (online) people it's something you wear to special events and only with special friends
Altrough that second point would make it special-occasion wear, beside conlita's I think most consider it special-occasion-like than costume-like. Never the less, I agree I wish more people would wear it daily. And that more people would just treat is as what it is, clothes. Not some personallity defining, life deciding thing.

>This was just a rant btw, I'm not saying the totality of lolita is like this at all. But a part of it is and I just don't like it much.
This actually made me feel okay about the comment instead of thinking another one just complains. I guess when ranting you only talk about the part that makes you want to rant, but it's good to know you realise it's not like that for everyone.

I mean ive read plenty of reddits and other peoples personal experience and i have seen both bad and good.

I come from a state in the US thats "at-will employment" so im already treated like a subhuman that can be replaced with ease because my jobs can just toss me the second they dont like me.

Also jokes on the Japanese, im already clinically depressed and want to die.

Don't worry anon, it's really common to start that way. To be honest, your style is probably going to take a while to settle down assuming you haven't already been lurking for years and years (and even then, it can take trial and error to figure out what looks best on your body / what suits you best in practice). I sold off almost all my items from my early days, but it's not a bad thing. It's just part of a normal process of developing your own style and experience in lolita. And if you really want to avoid it and want to get it perfect the first time, more research never hurts, too. If I were you though, I would just enjoy the excitement that comes with your first dress. I hope you end up loving it.
