I've been a diehard AP print fan since I got into lolita almost 10 years ago, but the last couple of years have really disappointed me. Only two print series have grabbed my attention, and surprise, surprise, they were more traditional, cotton releases. So much of what AP puts out now looks /worse/ than some of the better taobao brands. Construction and notion quality is still higher, but the prints just really suck. And why is everything fucking polyester now? I don't want to look like I walked out of some sissy's closet in shiny ass fabric that pulls when you look at it.

I bought LPs from AP and Baby in 2015, but that was the last year. Since then I've just bought casual brands' LPs.

Anybody remember that story about the lolita who killed herself the night after a meetup (and it was highly speculated to be because of depression)?
I think it was in Russia but i'm not even sure,it's so old like,early 2000s and it's blurry but i'm pretty sure it happened. That or I dreamt about it and got it mixed up with a real life event.

The basic big ones cost around $100 and more if they're limited release, and the limited pochette ones can go for $200-300 secondhand if they're the limited release ones.

>flex on others

I see way less of a fanbase for Usakumya on the western side than on the Japanese and Chinese lolitas side

Baby/AATP also put out a lot of Usakumya prints (it's their mascot ""kawaii"" character) so some girls just like to have the matching accessories or bags, it can be as simple as that. I'm not the biggest Usakumya fan either but some of them can actually be pretty cute, it depends on the art/print involved. That one navy x pink print that had stars, from a recent year comes to mind.

>> No.10012845

Buying an usakumya is like flexing with a Gucci belt. Cool, but unless the rest of your outfit is as good quality/brand as that, it's obvious you bought the cheapest flex possible, and it's probably second hand.

Baby's ballgowns... Now THAT'S a flex. Same for all the nouveau riche Chinese girls that get the latest release of AP, Baby and JetJ in each colorway.

It probably depends highly on your comm, you may have to change your pace or tailor things around the slower, non-crafty people if you open it to everybody in the lolita comm instead of going through (for eg) the knitting comm and ask who wants to join a knitting bee for lolita.

We had one that was folded into a day of other activities. So rather than a full on crafting day it was just a couple of hours of crafting in the middle of a regular meet with food and selfies and mingling the rest of the time. Worked out pretty well, everyone seemed to enjoy themselves and the slow ones who couldn't get the hang of making things didn't spend the whole meetup feeling frustrated with themselves. The rest I think enjoyed that they learned how to make something simple instead of needing to buy them.

Didn't realise I'd posted in the dying thread, copypasting my reply from the old thread:

Personally, it’s just a small gimmick of being a bear pretending to be a rabbit that gets me. Like idk why but the fact that you can pull her hood down is kinda cute. But then you get to kumakumya and that’s just a bear pretending to be a bear?!?

More practically, they just make good accessories. It’s a cute plush bear/rabbit with headbows, so it pretty much goes with a lot of lolita themes. And being a purse (albeit a tiny one that can’t hold anything) gives you a good excuse to carry it. One bear isn’t going to suit every single coord, but they come in so many colours and so many ribbon/eye combinations there’s probably a bear out there that suits almost any coord, which means you end up collecting them. Plus even more choices and versatility if you add in the mini matching outfits Baby has been making for them, her yellow and pink friends, and if you’re willing to pin things to her as well.

Added bonus: Baby keeps remaking them, so you don't need to worry about being dated (In contrast a lot of AP’s plush bags feel like they are tied to one or two specific prints), meanwhile the really old Usakumyas have gone so far around it's cool to have a really old Usakumya from the dawn of lolita now. Plus Baby also makes Usukumya & friends prints so if you like them it's easy to get into buying all of the different Usakumya things.

I can't really help you with thinking it looks like a demonic plush, it's cute to some of us somehow. But if you don't like them, don't get them. I only have two very basic ones myself, not the full range of different limited edition pochettes. Just let other people squee over kumya when they want, why rain on their parade just because it's not your thing.

I could use some ideas for normie coworker friendly lolita Halloween "costumes". We can wear Halloween costumes at my work, and I'd like to wear lolita and get away with it, but keep my powerlevel down.

example, being a witch works because the dress and petti work with the costume and it's a pretty normal costume for Halloween.
Being a "doll" wouldn't work because that's a weird costume for an adult at a job.
Most ideas I can think of won't work, I could use some inspiration. Sure i could be a witch but I don't really want to.

What is with baby and all these otherkin/transspecies bears? It's a little concerning. Why are things so bad for bears in Japan that they don't want to be bears anymore? Even kumakumya, I'm guessing it wears a hood so that it even though it looks like a bear which is what it is other people will see the hood and assume it's not a bear underneath and therefore treat it more kindly. Does this point to rampant bear-hatred and bear-abuse in Japan? What can we do to stop this??

It makes sense, but that's pretty sad. That whole incident wasn't Gloomy Bear's fault. She was depressed and hungry and that kid kept trying to play with her even though she was a grown-ass bear who needed her privacy. Like, she made a bad decision but that kid's shouldn't have been there in the first place. Where were his parents? I just don't think it's fair to judge all bears based on one troubled individual.

Does anyone know anything about a girl named Millye Kenwood? She sold me a dress a couple of weeks ago and it’s been impossible to get a tracking number from her, her English is pretty bad despite living and working in Tennessee so all I get is a “yes I have send” when I ask.

I searched her name before buying anything and she seems legit, despite at first wanting me to send the money as a gift at first but I figured she might just be lazy and/or stupid (I got her to send me an invoice in the end since I would refuse the deal otherwise).

I wouldn’t say she’s shady in any way from my experience, just a bit dull. But since the dress is sent from the US to Scandinavia I can’t help but be a bit worried until the dress arrives.

People say they don't sell well but Idk what that's based on. I only bought skirts, no dresses, from AP and ETC. Now I don't buy anything from them anymore. I thought they sold alright since they're much cheaper. At least btssb still releases them.

>> No.10013379

I think they don't sell as well as they used to, like another anon said. I remember when AP did a weird transition from selling normal lolita skirts to mini skirts of the print.

I've always found skirts a little awkward to wear, maybe other have the same experience? Skirts usually fit fine on the waist, but to me jsks and ops are just physically more comfortable. Blouse buttons always open around the bust area, which isn't ideal when you're wearing a skirt. I'm not even big chested, even by japanese sizing standards. Even when tucked in properly, I find blouses and cutsews bunch up weirdly at the waist of a skirt, and untucked tops with skirts look too frumpy on me.

Overall I look more polished with a jsk or op, even if I'm putting in minimal effort. The silhouette just seems cleaner. Have others found something similar to this, and if so, do you think this might have had any impact on the sales the led to fewer skirt releases?

I do suspect that a lot of it has to do with the Chinese market, where more elaborate or showy coordinates call for more than just a skirt and blouse/cutsew. I'm probably way off, so someone correct me if I'm talking rubbish.

>> No.10013397

I recall it being about bear that wanted to go to some magical kingdom but couldn't because it was a bear and not a rabbit. Then a girl came by and did some magic and woosh the bear now had rabbit ears (...well superficially at least) and the two of them went off to that magical kingdom together. The details are extremely blurry though, so please correct me if I'm wrong.

>> No.10013440


When AP sold them the skirts were consistently last to sell, sometimes there would even be a bloodbath and the skirts would still be up for a while. So no one's surprised when AP started leaving skirt cuts out.

It's reflected in CoF as well, usually you'd see way more jsks and onepieces than skirts.

I think for most people jsk is the best compromise (assuming you fit) between being able to change looks by changing the blouse/cardi/bolero/etc, but also easy to coord because your torso and skirt is one print and you don't have to worry about your top and bottom looking like two different coords.

>> No.10013448

I think you are correct. I also remember the bit about bear being so sad that it cried until its eyes turned red. Good stuff.

>> No.10013452

For a lot of people, skirts just look weird. I love the versatility of skirts (and the smaller sizes), but they accentuate my waist in the worst possible way. A well fitted JSK or OP looks so much better on me.

They've also never held their resale value well, so it was pointless to buy one new.

>> No.10013463

Yeah, I think that perfectly describes the issues a lot of people have with lolita skirts. They make me look bigger than I am most of the time as well, since most of my blouses are a bit too loose in the waist. I think this differs per brand, but quite a few of my brand blouses and tops are so short that lifting up my arms in a regular natural-waisted lolita skirt might untuck the bottom.
I still really like skirts so when I do wear them I'll sometimes use a belt or waist cincher. Most of all though I look for skirts with a wide waistband, preferably with corset lacing. I wear mostly classic and gothic, so the majority of the brands I like regularly put out skirts like that. It's probably harder to find them with sweet brands.

Although that's likely the reason western lolitas don't wear skirts as much, I don't know about the rest of the world. Since China makes up such a large part of the people who buy new AP and BTSSB, it might also be part of it that Chinese girls' preferences appear to gravitate towards more OTT ops and jsks.

Been considering this, I want to wait a few more days before I make any demands (shipping from the us to over here can take up to three weeks depending on the shipping company and how lucky you are). But I just asked her why she keeps avoiding my questions regarding the tracking number, and depending on her answer I’m going to explain the situation she is putting both me and herself in by acting like this.

Again, she has been really nice so far so I don’t want to put her in a bad situation unless I feel I really need her to. I don’t understand why she is being like this if she actually sent it, I wish I knew what her first language is so I could somehow translate if she is misunderstanding what I mean by tracking number.

Are you knew to Lolita?

If you wear it quite often, you get to a point where you mostly pick the same pieces and make similar coords. The you think "hmm, I#d like to do something new. How did others wear this dress?" and you go and look for inspiration.
In case of Holy Lantern, you will see so so many coords and after some scrolling you'll think "I can't really do something new or interesting" and you need a new approach.

Also, if you see your beloved dress everytime you open Instagram (because everyone owns it and wants to wear it) you won't want to look at yours again that soon. From a psychological perspective, the dress isn't as interesting, because the exposure to it was too high.

No, I’ve been wearing it for 5+ years. If you’re going online and seeing someone wear the same dress you have and feel it disillusions you then you are in the fashion for the wrong reasons.

What the hell is up with AP's quality? I haven't bought from them in a few years but I picked up the OP of Horror Sweet Shop and it's so thin, no built in petti, nothing. The fabric feels like it would snag from a light breeze. I'm honestly really upset about it.

I have older pieces from them that are very sturdy, even only going back to 2013 releases, they seem to be much higher quality. I'm gutted, but I guess I'm the fool for expecting to be paying for anything other than the print. It's still cute and I'm not going to part with it, but I feel like I'll have to be really careful wearing it.

nayrt, I get what you mean (overexposure can make you like the thing less, and this did happen to me with Holy Lantern unfortunately) but that doesn't happen to everyone or with every kind of print. For example, CTP has cats. Like half of lolitas if not more love cat prints so they'll probably be satisfied with it in the end, and it should hold at least some resale value, even if the higher value drops. Even if you can only get like $250 back for it for some girls that print would be worth it, especially since it was so hard to obtain in the past.

I might get it myself, on the off chance it reaches crazy prices again (doubt it though) and because I just do like cats. I also like both pink and grey colorways (though prefer grey) but it'd be a win/win for me, even if I missed out on the grey.

At least I still have some pre 2013 dream dresses to hunt down.

>> No.10014914

First of all, you only have built-in-pettsi with cotton. You don't need that with lighter fabric.

Second. just because fabric is light or thin, doesn't mean it's bad quality or snags fast. In fact, my new AP pieces hold up perfectly fine and can even be machine-washed. My cotton pieces can't be machine washed, cause these bitches like to bleed.

Romantic Cat really was an outlier. The fabric choice was exceptionally weird, the lace has never been that short and the straps are placed rather close together on the bodice. It's a shame, because the print is one of the better ones.
When you go to the store more often you wouldn't find this again though.

What? Plenty of older chiffon-style AP releases have built in pettis, it's not "just for cotton." Petit Patisserie, for example. Cutting out the petti is a cost saving measure.

The site is so wonky, but god forbid anyone complain about it, or they're branded an evil bitch. SO much information that was on it is now gone, like half the features and most of the prices. The formatting and coding is amateurish at best, with stuff like this on practically every listing I look at.

I would have preferred them to just save all the raw item data and put it somewhere so we could actually do something with it. Instead they've apparently lost a bunch of shit. Really disappointing given how much work some people who are no longer even with us put into keeping it updated.

>> No.10014932

They extracted it from the original website. The prices aren't gone, they just have a new usable format so they don't all appear. I wish they'd fix that, but the developer had life to deal with at the moment.

You know you can contribute, it's open source.

You know, I wish people would define what they mean by “quality”. It’s a generic term like “this computer is powerful”.

>> No.10014968

Gone for the users is good enough as gone, considering most people don't use the site as devs. I never meant that the information was lost.

The explanations I've seen were hardly convincing. The old format/layout worked fine. If they needed to clean up the code or switch a few things, I'd understand, but there really was no reason to "rehaul" the site into something that's practically unusable.

I think every lolita has to deal with that feeling at least once (esp in the early stages of figuring out your own style), the best thing to do is just push forward!

And everyone who stands out in any way eventually has a situation where bullies/jerks/shitheads build up enough nerve to 'confront' you to impress their friends/peers. In my personal experience the best way to deal with it is to turn it around and make them see how stupid they're behaving for not minding their own damn business.

Don't answer nor stay there being made fun of, just turn around and walk away. Even if you give them a good answer, there will never be satisfaction on your part. You will always feel like shit.

The old site was built on a deprecated version of drupal with serious security holes.

Attempts to update to a modern version of drupal failed.

Drupal wasn't very efficient (which means slower site, higher cost, more downtime), and it's a big target for hackers/spammers.

Many of the things that look bad in the new version (like that pesky html in the notes section, or the prices which are being migrated into a different method of storage) is a direct result of problems with the old version that resulted in data being saved in a not-great way.

Some of that data (like the notes section) would need to be cleaned up by a human, no matter what.

>You're retarded
Way to be one of the people I'm talking about.

People come up to me all the time because I live in a city. I usually say "sorry I don't have any spare change" and keep walking.

I've gotten normie comments before while wearing lolita. The only time it's been something insane was when it was coming from someone who was clearly not all there.

But I'm not talking about people who say the coord looks bad. I'm talking about people who say things like "ew what am I looking at" and other similar language like "this... whole thing looks terrible".

I'm pretty sure the stranger was referring to how she was dressed which is why it was upsetting in the first place.

You're correct. Some dumb normie didn't understand that different isn't the same as "bad" or that bad is subjective.

The same way morons who do this sort of thing on this board don't understand or care to believe that bad is indeed, subjective.

IW OPs were always in the 20+k yen price range (and that's pretty cheap, since AP and Baby regularly go over 30+k yen now and Moitie has been just under 40k yen for a while now). The headbow is one of the bigger, more intricate ones so 3k yen for it seems reasonable.

Even the apron itself doesn't really seem too far inflated, a lot of the cheaper aprons you see don't have this much ruffling, tiers and detailing on it.

It's sold seperately, so you could just get whatever fits your budget and then grab a different, cheaper apron or headbow instead.

>> No.10015336


Having owned both of these plus Holy Theatre, I feel like I should point out. Cosmic and MCD were both heavy, opaque-ish chiffon. Holy Theatre is far, far, far lighter. Obviously a built-in petti works with Cosmic and MCD, but for Holy Theatre the fabric is so thin and sheer I think part where the petti is sewn to the skirt (it's always sewn halfway down the skirt) may legit show up as an unsightly bump that shows through the sheer chiffon, and since it's built-in you can never get rid of it.

Can't really speak for Candy Horror Shop print since I don't have that, but with Holy Theatre I'm 100% behind the decision not to include the crinoline petti, and I wouldn't be surprised if they decided not to include it for all chiffon pieces going forward after that, to avoid having to redo a design.

As for the fabric being way too thin, I kind of have mixed feelings about it. It does feel very thin and flimsy, but I think with Holy Theatre being mostly angelic dead animals I think AP was legit trying to go for an ephemeral, angelic feel where the print seems to be printed on thin air. Doesn't really work so well when the colour of the lining makes the white animals look grey... but that's a bad design decision and not so much a quality one, I think. Again, not really sure why they'd use something that thin for a spoopy candy Halloween print, but at least I can see that it's a design decision behind some of these things.

Maybe it would be better if AP gave us more detailed info on their item pages, like which one of their dresses has built-in pettis and what's the denier # on their chiffon pieces.

>> No.10015339

I am torn, I thought about doing that but everything is tied together so nicely. The little black bows on the apron, the shape of the headbow. I don't really like the shape of the apron but the entire aesthetic together is beautiful

>> No.10015350


If you already own a black headbow and a blue dress with a white collar, you could probably just get the apron? Neck ribbon can be easily replaced with a regular piece of black ribbon. (If you don't there's not much point swapping them out for other pieces, the non-Alice set pieces are roughly similar prices anyway).

I think that's why they priced the apron so high. It's really the definitive piece of the set.

It's usually even odds whether IW's aprons end up being unpopular and go on sale, but the more intricate designs don't pop up for resale that often, so if you really, really want it then I'd suggest getting the apron while it's available.

>> No.10015379


the cosmic v-neck jsk comes with organza lining, but the sailor jsk style doesn't

horror candy would look bad with a built in petti since the fabric is so soft. its the same fabric they used in a couple of other designs, and is made to resemble silk since it has a mild sheen to it

Somewhat correct. Do you not know the official story?
>Deep in the forest of a faraway land, there lived a stylish little bear. On a sunny afternoon, the little bear happened upon a very long-eared bunny. In that moment, his heart was stolen by those lovely ears. The little bear wanted nothing more than a pair of long ears for himself. Thinking he too could have long ears, the little bear sat in front of the mirror and pulled on his round ears until they turned red. The little bear cried and cried every day because his ears remained the same.

Then, one day, the little bear saw a lovely girl wearing BABY’s clothing. She listened to his story from beginning to end, and decided to grant the little bear’s wish! As if by magic, the girl presented the little bear with an exquisite bunny-eared bonnet. The little bear placed the bonnet on his head, and looked at himself in the mirror. All of a sudden, the tears stopped. The little bear looked just like a little bunny with red eyes from endless crying and long ears atop his head.

The girl exclaimed, ‘So cute! Where I am from, we call bears 'Kumya.’ From now on, you will be known as 'Usakumya-chan.” The little bear was so happy, he traveled to Candyland, where the girl resides. Everyone in Candyland wears BABY’s clothing, and everything there is cute and sweet. Usakumya-chan and the magical girl spent many fun-filled days in Candyland.

I’m sorry that happened to you, assholes will always look to victimize strangers and attack them. I remember a while back I was putting air in my tires and some thug dude took the line from me, wanting to do it for me/hit on me. I took it back slowly and was like ‘nah I’m good’ and he called me a Bitch and when I asked him what he said he went on a tirade of insulting me, calling me a fat worthless whore,etc. the lesson is it’s not you, it’s always them.

Im not affiliated with lolibrary but this is what I understood about it. Please correct me if I'm wrong and there is more info.

I think it had to do with the old site being down often which gave many complaints. They had to switch servers including transferring the database etc.

And the way it was programmed (all info in a string instead of multiple database entries) didn't allow for more specific search options people kept asking for for years. The things is, they are now trying to add those but it takes cutting all those strings apart into seperated pieces in the database than can easily be used for queries.

I think they once explained the above a few times, but no mater how often they say it people just start complaining and acting like they make it worse for fun. That's kinda why people get annoyed when you complain. People complained about the lack of features. Now they are switching around the whole site to make those possible, and people complain because it's not finished in a day and while they're working on it some things work way worse.

Is Estryllia Enhillia really a Japanese brand? Their whole presentation is incredibly Chinese looking. I don't want to pay japanese indie prices for crypto chinese taobao brands.

>> No.10016579

I actually really like this... even though it's so busy, the design and overall vibe are subdued enough that it'd be really easy to wear. I haven't been into AP's releases for a while but I'm seriously considering getting this.

>> No.10016598


Half the newer Japanese brands after 2013 are like these, that's why there's haters for RPA and 3F because they do the whole printed polyester thing that makes them look taobao-ish.

Your best bet is to wait for closeup photos and reviews from people who have seen the dresses in person. At least Japan currently has way stricter advertising laws, so the stock photos won't be as heavily misleading as the pop up "new brand" chinese shops.

Look, I just pointed out some hard facts and all you can do is saying "hurr just contribute yourself and fill the year old gap yourself". If someone said that there are allegedly dedicated lolibrarians who are archiving, why should I do it then? You just proved my fucking point that they most likely stopped doing it at some point.

Not for classic. I have a friend that follows the Chinese comm more (as she's native). I only know what I hear when I'm interested in something (she can always tell me what to expect) or when there is drama because I love hearing about that. I don't wear classic.

Why do you feel need to say it's shit 500 times? They know. They try their best. I'm annoyed as fuck because I'm a software engineer myself and I can tell you the worst part of the job or end users, and product owners with no IT knowledge.

There where around much longer than that smartass. Their bonnets have been round for ages and one of the designers was a writer for G&L bible. People just hate them for being very popular bonnets, especially since their materials are sometimes questionable even when their items overall look great.

>> No.10016663

No, the point is people keep repeating the same issues. It's public, they can see the "feedback" has already been given. They can see they know about it. But everyone feels the need to keep repeating it continuously and tell them to fix it quicker, then complain about the time it takes, as if they expect a few people to give up their jobs and/or free time and work full time on a project they don't get payed for because there are issues they aren't knowledgeable enough or don't "have the time" to fix themselves.

I give lolibrary $1 monthly via patreon. Do I have right to whine about it now when I contribute?

Just kidding. I just want to help them with funding because I don’t know shit from IT stuff or whatever

I don't understand though? If it's all in one string, there's still some way that it was being separated, right? Like commas, or brackets, or something to keep the search terms from spilling into each other? You could parse that shit into separate terms easily with a script. I could do that in fucking vba with Microsoft Excel of all things...

Fair enough, their headwear business was doing well and pretty well-liked. It's their clothing line that debuted later and .....not well-regarded.

Their headwear was fine until that one model of bonnet hat became the only thing they made and they propagated everywhere in many colours, but only that one model. They used to have a wider variety of stuff but their old gallery just sort of vanished off their own webpage several years ago.

I sometimes wonder exactly what happened. They did better as a small... smallerer indie-er brand that anyone who didn't speak Japanese didn't know about, than an international indie brand that sometimes shows up to overseas cons.

Ah well.

People love their bonnets, many just hate the clothes because let’s be real they’re tacky as fuck.

From what I had heard their original headwear designer/maker left so they just stuck to the one simple design, but unfortunately I don't have a source for that.

They have very little information on their front page (though much more than before) and they make it sound like it's going well

>> No.10016782

Nayrt but it could be going beautifully and still not have much effect on user experience yet. It sounds like they've been redesigning the infrastructure, I've seen that sort of thing take months even with multiple people working on it full time.

>> No.10016815

Lmao like what? Shitty non print skirts I could sew myself for a fraction of the price? The last time they did a skirt was for the sweetie violet rerelease and Charlotte bear, which I did buy. Just because they made one or two skirt releases doesn’t invalidate all the complaints of no skirt releases.

Things I could of bought if they made a skirt version?
Romantic cat, girly leopard, lovely bathroom, horror candy shop, ghost night bride, my favorite room, sugar cross, unicorn mermaid, dolls tea party, day dream bed, milky pony carnival... I know there were at least 10 more popular print releases that didn’t get skirts, but I’m not adding them since they weren’t prints I’m intereat in.

That is my point. User experience sucks right now and that is why people are complaining. If they made it clear what kind of changes they are making and where the donation money goes, maybe people would be more understanding. You can't expect everyone to check their facebook and patreon for updates all the time either, especially since part of the userbase is in asia where they don't use those websites much.

The donations go straight to the monthly cost of keeping the site up? Why do you think that's free?

>> No.10017356

Nobody thinks it's free retard. But stop expecting all of us to have any experience with IT or whatever you call your field. I have no idea how much it costs and how much money they need. I donated money several times last year but desu I have given up on them and mainly rely on pinterest now.

Okay, and your money went to keeping the site up. I don't get why you are so mad.

Lolibrary could be that cheap too if everyone who used it paid that fee. It'd actually pay for the developers time too. It's non-profit now too so it's tax deductible if you do donate.
