I got 2 nice chiffon petticoats off of WW's lacemarket. Some minor stains and the elastic was all stretched out. ((couldn't even stay on my hips))
Stains came out in bleach and the wash and I replaced the elastic, so now theyre snug on my waist.

I hardly classify petticoats within the same category as panties and bras.
They touch no more than your average skirt does.
Do you never buy used clothes every because they touched someone's skin once?
Because- Oh no! The waistband touched someone's waist!
A used blouse has touched more of someone's bare skin than a petticoat has.

I actually like my body nowadays after struggling with body image issues all my life, but getting back into lolita/j-fashion again makes me feel like a massive fat fuck since I can’t fit into a lot of brand.
Also, I feel like I have a shopping addiction lately. I am constantly checking Lacemarket, Mercari, and TaoBao for listings and spending money left and right. I don’t have any sort of savings right now because my dumbass self can’t show some restraint and not blow all my paycheck money immediately.

I've had trichotillomania for almost all my life. For the most part I've been able to not pick too much at my head.

I just know that they will self sabotage over the cat and blame me for another failed semester.

Another close friend lost a job out of stupidity, and suddenly is really interested in my finances. Made the mistake of buying them food on multiple occasions. Its starting to get creepy and predatory how this chronically poor person wont stop talking about money around me.

Tfw I decided to finally decorate my room properly instead of having all my stuff just awkwardly placed on shelves. In the process of buying frames for the art I get at cons, proper lighting and shelves for my figures, getting things so I can store my Lolita but not have it hidden way in my closet when I can't wear it. Invite my basic bitch sister in because she's always pinning decorating shit on pintrest and I got some of the display ideas from it. She says she can't believe I'm 'wasting' so much money the display stuff alone, not to mention the stuff that I want to display before walking out.
Tfw I'm the financially responsible one who has never over drawn her bank account and I actually take care of my shit. She has a four hundred dollar prom dress that she wore once, smells like booze, and is now lying on her filthy floor with a great deal of other clothing, dirty dishes that are developing ecosystems, and rabbit crap because she's 'to busy' to clean it up and take it outside.

I'm pretty sure my SIL stole one of my out of print OnS pattern books when she was over at my apartment for NYE, but I can't prove it. All I know is that it’s missing, she’s ridiculously immature for her age, she’s been ogling my lolita wardrobe and pattern books for months while whining about how poor she is and how she can’t afford nice clothes like me (though she can afford dozens upon dozens of overpriced fandom plushies and other merch), and that she was left alone in the living room for a good ten minutes because she arrived much earlier than agreed and we hadn’t finished preparing. Joke’s on her though, she’s way too big for all the patterns and not good enough at sewing to alter them to fit her. Usually she comes to me for help with altering and drafting patterns, but she can’t very well do that with something she stole from me.

In her case she also wouldn't be able to fit anything except maybe some fully shirred Maxicimam Lovely pieces, but her excuse for not being able to lose weight is also that she's too poor for healthy food and a gym membership. Plus she supposedly needs the fandom junk for her mental health so giving that up is not an option.

I have agoraphobia pretty badly and I should point of that its a cyclical disorder that feeds into itself. It sounds like you have something similar?
You need to force yourself to break it a little bit at a time.
Most people aren't bothered if you ask for pics (unless they're eating). Start with that next time.
Then maybe go to a photoshoot of a series you like and hover around the back, and maybe talk to a couple of people.
Then talk to more people at the photoshoot.
Just do steps at a time. Eventually, you'll be able to have a friend with you which lessens agoraphobic symptoms. (Kind of. an inability to go out/do things alone in itself is an agoraphobic symptom.)

I'm female, and at university, having zero luck making female friends.
I grew up with a really overbearing narcissistic "I'm the center of attention not you" mother and then ended up being the sidekick to a similar narcissistic girl from grade 2 to grade 12 graduation.

Now that I'm trying to be independent, making new friends just isn't working. I guess I'm just really socialized to be the backup to someone else and not be the center of attention myself.

My friend asks if I need help, politely turn him down, citing how I wanted to challenge myself. Still afraid to tell my friend about how’s he’s been treating me.
>Hanging out at my friend’s place with some mutuals the week before the con. Mutuals ask about my panel. Friend then goes out of his way to shit talk the con and the quality of their panels and they’ll take just anyone who applies, including me.
>Really hurt by this. Our mutuals stick up for me and he refuses to back down and continues to shit talk the con and my panel, which I haven’t even done yet.
>I message him on fb and finally let him know how I feel, how I’m sick of him always putting me down and how I wanted to do this panel on my own because he didn’t want to use any of my ideas. I tell him despite all that I still want to remain friends but there are things he needs to work on so we can keep our relationship.
>Friend doesn’t respond, instead he removes himself from the fb event I made for my panel and posts a passive aggressive “woe is me, I need friends who love me for who I am” update on his fb. That is clearly about me. He didn’t want to talk about things at all.
>Con comes around. My panel is a huge hit. The room fills to capacity and I get tons of compliments and positive feedback.
>Friend comes to my panel halfway through, sits there seething, and bolts the minute I’m done. without a word. Guess we’re not friends anymore.

Tbh I’m glad this relationship is over but I still feel sad about how things went down. I gave my friend every chance to respond and even set time aside so we could talk at the con but I guess that was just asking for too much.

In any case... yeah, if you like the game and still like the characters, absolutely go for it. It's kind of interesting cosplaying stuff whose popularity has long since died out since that makes you stand out more, I think. Sure, a few people might have that misunderstood characterization in their minds when they see the cosplay, but I'm almost certain more people would just think "well that's a pretty cool looking mask dude, wonder where he's from".

I don’t know how to feel about Ryan Kopf and his cons and circle of friends anymore. I’m involved with their staff team and as a result I interact with him, Erica, and others when it comes to the Midwest conventions. I had only ever heard very vague rumors about him being creepy or whatever, but this was pretty much always dismissed by my (his) friends as being false accusations and harassment towards him. But after seeing his name on the Broken Staircase spreadsheet I started looking into it and found a lot more detailed accounts of how exactly he’s bad news, including a police report about a rape. I’m really at a loss here since I have so many commitments and friends in the AnimeCon.org scene, and I also feel stupid as fuck for not actually looking into this stuff earlier. I dunno. I think part of me doesn’t want to believe it but at the same time it’s not something I can just ignore. I don’t know who else I can talk to about this either.

1) You can't control other people.
2) Going no contact (feel free to tell her why but honestly, you are not required to justify yourself.) should speak for itself that YOU are not causing the drama.
3) If she starts anything and you remain out of it, you will quickly find out who is worth your time because those that latch onto drama will just stew in their own shitstorm and it will soon blow over.
4) Enjoy that now you have nothing to do with them, and those that already knew better benefit as well because you aren't dragging that relation back into the fold, even by proxy.

I actually try really hard not to be narcissistic, especially not histrionic or anything.
I try really hard to be a nice person too, to the point that I've been told I'm boring because I'm too nice. It makes sense though, I'm kinda tame.

It isn't so much that I can't keep friends, but that the friendships never start, or with other girls at university, they'll get to know me, and then be like "Aw, sweetness, *you* shouldn't hang out with us and go to the club, you'll just get some weird pedo or something after you!"
(And they're right, I usually do, and I'm socially naive and it never ends well)

Like you said, a lot of the problem with finding friends actually is my own fault in a way, because I have social phobia, but also a crowd phobia, PTSD, and have a physical disability/chronic pain that reduces my mobility. I'm not in a wheelchair, but I can't walk long distances, and a lot of people find that hard to be friends with because I can't keep up, or I can't go out most places.
I think that's possibly a common experience for people who have trouble with mobility though.

I'm also in a small city in a rural area, so there's not many places to go or meet people, and the general local weekend pastime is either being posh at the clubs or partying on the beach doing drugs.

Sorry for this being really long, my point was that I really do try not to be narcissistic, but friendship-wise everything goes wrong anyway.
It seems like that's not uncommon though?

You should go by yourself! It's so much nicer shopping alone, especially without an SO that has no interest in what you're doing and just wants you to get it over with. You have the opportunity to actually shop in person in those stores and find amazing deals. Dress your best and strut confidently on your own. Take as much time as you want in everything you want to do. Make lots of stops in random shops you pass by. You need to learn to be on your own.

Wear it on the date. Unironically, if they can't accept that part of you from the get-go then you're just waiting for a dispute to happen. You should be comfortable with who you are with your partner. Wear what you want to wear and express who you are. The point of a date is to get to know someone and gauge compatibility, so it's kinda moot if you're holding back so much. Unless you're not serious about it and just wanna hop on his bones for a few weeks before getting out of there.

Depends on what your date thinks about it. If they like it and would like to see you wearing it, go for it.

Slightly ranting here but too many people neglect this rule of thumb. Then they wonder why the feels thread is filled with "my bf doesn't like my fashion but I love him aaaaaaaah" posts. If they just cleared out this stuff properly at the start of the relationship, they wouldn't have it blowing up in their faces once the butterflies quiet down and the honeymoon period ends.

Your partner should ideally be your best friend. They don't have to like everything you like, but they should at least be accepting, approving, and encouraging of your passions. The person you date should be someone that you really feel you can be your most unedited and unrestricted self around - someone who you feel you can express yourself more with than anyone else. Someone that you actually enjoy the company of and don't feel like you're obligated to spend time with. Someone you wouldn't feel guilty farting around.

I actually got back into lolita after a 4 year hiatus in part because of my bf. I thought it should be something I grew out of after college to focus on my career, but he’s still passionate about his hobbies (some weeby) while having a good job, so I felt encouraged to do the same. I pulled my dresses out of storage, reopened my dream dress folder, and started adding old DDs to my wardrobe — easier now that I have a real job. My bf really admires the fashion, likes to subtly color-coordinate with me when we go out together and has made an effort to learn about brands, trends etc. so that we can talk about it together. For my birthday he surprised me by buying my top dream dress, which I’d been looking for for ages, from mercari with the shopping service he usually uses for car parts.

And actually, I met him on Tinder, where my last picture was an old snapshot of me in lolita. So I’d say it’s a smart move to frontload with the fashion.

Just go out to more events. You'd be surprised at what you can find in your area for sweet lolita. Fashion, Japanese Culture, any type of con setting is really safe, Renn Faire since it's costume safe, getting a friend or two to dress up alternatively with you, etc.

Cute is subjective. I'd say that like 92% of women in porn aren't cute at all, but I have high standards. But there are definitely people who like those women enough to admire them. If you fill some weird fetish niche, most people probably won't even care about the face either.

i think "becoming popular" might be a little optimistic, but there's no harm in trying. lolita is just a gimmick though. unless you're the kind of cute that incels like (see: belle), you'd need something else to make people stick around. good content, hopefully.

This kind of stuff is about luck, persistence, presentation, and having the right personality for it. If you're into it, give it a shot. Don't expect a large following at first, but keep going and you'll most likely get an audience. It's an unfilled niche, and even though many of your viewers won't understand the fashion, they'll probably be taken away by it because most other girls streaming are in cleavage tank-tops and booty shorts.

Wear it out with friends! I find that being frilly makes me less anxious in public since my big deal thing is overhearing laughter from people walking by me and being completely irrational that they're mocking me for something I'm doing/have done. But if I'm wearing something that's weird and eyecatching then I can take the viewpoint of "I'm wearing frills, of course people might stare and laugh but it's not at me personally and it's on them for being dickheads". It's a very weird distinction and I know for many people it's the act of drawing attention that makes them anxious - and of course I only do this in the safe parts of town where I wouldn't get targeted for theft or assaulted for wearing alternative fashion.

With friends, I think you get less attention in a group with people in regular clothes because you're with someone else, so there's no questions like "what are you all dressing up for/are you in a play" and people are less likely to yell things like "hey Little Bo Peep" to a larger group with 'normal' people in it.

Honestly, it wasn't that great of a meet. You didn't miss much. The worst part was that the venue wasn't even it's own little restaurant anymore. It was a shared mini marketplace and very noisy. Really not cute. We were seated right by the corner of the restaurant in the windows, and people were looking in on us like we were at a zoo. The view outside was ugly too.

The same person who brought the child made an offer for people to order off menu if they wanted to come last minute. I tried to ask about the menu before going and the host assured me it would be christmassy. (Because I can't eat most generic high tea food thanks to an egg allergy) In the past that place was really good about doing a traditional christmas dinner so I thought I would be fine. But no. It was just high tea fare with a couple dried cranberries on a scone and turkey meat in one of the sandwiches for the theme. As usual, I ended up paying way too much for a slice of crustless white bread with cream cheese and cucumber slices, a scone, a tart, and some tea.

Different anon but I have similar problems and all my local friends hate lolita. My wardrobe is super toned down, like would-probably-get-deleted-off-COF-for-not-being-lolita-enough toned down but any time I wear it around them they either make snide comments the entire time or make an excuse to dip out early. Even when I wear super plain everything with no head accessory and a long shapeless cardi on top they treat me like a cringy weeb dressed up for an anime con.

My closest lolita comm is pretty far away. Where do I find local friends who wouldn’t mind me dressing weird? I’m in my late twenties and not into anime so hanging around anime cons just to make friends seems like it would be super awkward.

I'm not sure if I'm depressed or if something else is going on. I feel trapped and unable to move forward with nothing driving me anymore. Work itself isn't bad but at the same time I don't know what I'm working towards or why I'm doing it.

Lolita used to be such a big part of my life and I've really drifted away from it in the last couple years. My favorite brands seem just as directionless as me and none of their recent releases interest me. I still love the pieces I do have so I know I don't hate the fashion or anything like that. But without some kind of 'reward' for working so much I feel miserable and drained.

Part of me is thinking about quitting my job, selling my huge wardrobe, and taking a couple years off to figure myself out. I know it's career suicide and I might miss all my brand once it's gone, but maybe I need that push?

Don't sell it all ifyou do sell anything. Just sell a quarter of it. Honestly i wouldn't reccomend selling any of it. It sounds like you do need a change of pace.

I feel pathetic for saying this, but as much as I love wearing j-fashion, I don't feel safe wearing it in my daily life due to my circumstances with school and transportation. I've been followed and approached by really strange and creepy men around my school's city while wearing the clothes, and I feel like it makes me a magnet for freaks who don't take "no" for an answer. I have to take public transportation to and from my college classes as I live almost an hour away from campus, and my classes frequently go late into the night, making scary train rides home with drunk men unbearable when I stick out. I work every weekend, leaving me unable to wear the clothes for more than 3 hours before putting on a work uniform.

You may be thinking, "anon, why don't you just use your damn car and get a parking pass?", the amount of money I would spend on gas and the parking pass itself just isn't reasonable with the amount of money I make working part time(and I'm not going to spend that kind of money just so I can wear clothes in peace, that just feels wasteful). I'm a full time student, and I drive every day to the train station, which quickly drains my gas. I also can't afford to live on campus.

Anyway, that's my rant. I got dressed up nice yesterday was followed and harassed again. By the time I got home that night I just wanted to cry and give up. My campus is in a more freaky part of the city and I've taken to carrying mace with me wherever I go.

Don’t feel bad. Your safety should come first. If you feel like your clothes are making you a target then you are completely in the right to stop wearing them.

i hate that wigs are such a staple for most lolitas, at least in the USA. it doesn't help that the people wearing them are typically fat or poorly coordinated. it's so costumey. from the comm pics i've seen, bad wigs (which, let's be real, is most wigs in the western comm) take us from street fashion to cosplay territory.

this probably stems from my salt that, for many, lolita is a costume they put on once a month for a pithy number of likes on the gram. unless you wear the fashion for yourself, regularly and without the need to flock to others, you're no lolita to me.

This kinda doesn't even go here, but I just need to say it somewhere...

As a lolita I try really hard to take care of my skin and hair and stay in shape and look my best.

My boyfriend transferred to a new job and now has a super-crush on his female supervisor. I called him on it, he admitted it, and he says he just can't help it, he just is really physically and emotionally attracted to her.

I just recently actually saw her and she looks *AWFUL*
She's blonde and thin but is 24 but looks 40 easily, she's perky but really trashy and low class, she gets drunk and high on various drugs, and goes on weekend long binges.

I just don't get it. What am I doing wrong? Why does he think she's more attractive than me?
I'm just lucky she's not reciprocating his interest, or he'd be gone.

This might sound minor but we're even considering separate bedrooms because he insists on masturbating about her.
I've tried holding on through problems before, but I think this is the beginning of the end, and I'm starting to be really annoyed that I've wasted five years of my life on catering to him in this relationship, and it's going to end like this.

>> No.10088180 [DELETED]

I think he does have bad taste. I guess I shouldn't say "think" but "know" because all his sexual fantasy stuff focuses on really stereotypically "slutty" and promiscuous behavior that I'm not really comfortable with.

I think I stay because he has a chronic illness that's needed surgeries in the past, and just the other year there was a mix up with a generic medication and it was awful and he couldn't eat solid food for a month and was bedridden for a month, and it took almost four months for him to recover back to normal. He went from 130lbs down to 98lbs, and I just felt like I had to be there, but he still managed to be ungrateful and nasty.

I think really though, if she did ever reciprocate, I'd let him go. We used to be best friends but now we can barely stand each other, and the separate rooms thing sounds, just so free and great to be away from having to follow his rules.
(He has a lot of rules, he's almost turning into my father with a self-serving rule for every situation)

He wants to start eating dinner separately because we aren't getting along and our schedules are too different and I was surprised how relieved I felt once I thought about it.

>> No.10088200 [DELETED]

We used to be super best friends, but he just said he started losing empathy for me, and when he did that he started getting really nasty and mean with stuff he said to me, and then I just started saying screw you and your "rules" about my life, and it went downhill from there.

Like I said in >>10088197 I don't think it's been great for awhile. If he wasn't sick I wouldn't stay, if he legitimately had someone else, I wouldn't stay either.

I'm honestly thanking any divine authority figure that'll listen for birth control and that we never had a baby, or even a cat. The break-up will be hard enough as it is on the rubber tree plant.

It sounds like neither of you love each other any more. Have a grown up talk about it and separate. If you're that relieved about avoiding your boyfriend by schedule it means you're subconsciously uncomfortable with him already, simple as that. The five years you had together might have been "good", but you've already recognised that this is the beginning of the end. Most likely it will only get worse from here on out.

This is getting into realy TMI territory now, but last term I took a course about working with women who've experienced abuse, and he was trying to help me study for it, and we were both separately reading this one module and verbal abuse, and everything just clicked about his behavior, and he even admitted he realized he was being abusive.

We just sort of sat there in silence for awhile, and he asked what he should do, so he's trying to see a counselor now, but yay waiting lists.

He still gets really vicious when he gets mad though, it's like he can't actually control being a bitchy little brat half the time. It's really weird because he's so friendly when he's feeling okay and everyone at his work thinks he's this awesome little sweetheart and they don't realize what he's like when he comes home.

Yeah, I've told him if he ever raises a physical hand to me I'm going to break his knees and leave, and he agreed.

A couple months ago though there was an incident between us and he started throwing things and like grabbing stuff off the kitchen counter and crashing it on the floor.

I had worked with an autistic kid who used to do really violent physical self-harming behavior and I was taught these "aggression reduction" moves where you basically police tackle the poor kid to the floor and pin him until he calms down (I don't think they recommend doing those anymore, this was years ago).

When my boyfriend starting throwing things that night and he wouldn't stop, it just went through my head to pull that move on him, and I caught him from behind and really crashed him to the kitchen floor.

You're supposed to pin them by straddling their back (I can see why they don't do these moves on kids anymore) and it worked and kept him down, but I just had this moment of clarity, sitting there, straddling his back in my nightgown and thinking, I just had to use a non-aggression move on my own boyfriend because he was pissed off that I didn't follow his bedtime routine rules.

I knew then that something had been wrong for awhile.

I just want the items in bidding for on LM to expire so I dont have to constantly check my email.
I've got a few days left and it's agonizing.

>> No.10088824

I really wish LM had an option for 3- or 5-day auctions. 7 are just too long and everyone forgets about them.
If only we could use yahoo auctions too..

I'm not losing weight fast enough and my colleagues keep trying to make me break OMAD. I don't want to go drinking with them after work but if I don't I inevitably get a cold shoulder from them.
This wouldn't be a big deal except for the fact I'm 21 in a job that pays way more than I ever thought I would make at this age, and several of them are "cool bosses" (they are to be fair) that expect the whole team to go drinking and shoot the shit.

Im not gonna forget. I set an alarm an hour before the auction ends to watch for snipers/scalpers.

You can do it anon. We believe in you.

>> No.10088867

Barely anyone snipes on LM (party because it doesn't work sometimes) unless it's a very popular item.

>> No.10088875

It's not difficult, you can do it! Leave the name field blank, type the thread name into the Subject field, type up some sort of description so people know what the thread is about and what sort of content it's intended for (if you want discussion try coming up with questions for people to answer), and attach a relevant pic. You can also open the thread with a small dump of inspiration pics of the styles the thread is intended for.

You can go out and limit yourself to coffee, tea, and water.

So a girl i used to be inseparable, bffs with always had a bad habit of copying me. I know usually it's not intentional, and often i copy friends without realising when we are close. My problem with her was that she stole my ideas constantly and then claimed she came up with it. She cut her bangs, stole some of my art concepts and designs, constantly complained that my coordinates got "more attention" than her and tried wearing clothes similar to me despite the fact she was hot topic trash.
We stopped being friends since she got a boyfriend and she basically lost her soul. I tried hanging out with her a year ago and she barely said anything and kept insisting her boyfriend (who already doesn't like me) come. She basically abandoned me for him, she's a complete gold digger, and he was willing to pay for her. She even blocked me on facebook for no reason because she thought my posts about attending conventions and events were a way to spite her. recently i've been active on instagram and i noticed she slowly started liking a bunch of pages i already like, and she saw i was still into yumekawaii. she always claimed she hated it but she wore her own coordinate the other day, all hot topic items. She also constantly makes vague posts about her "ex bestie" and it really bothers me, since i know shes never had a bestie besides me. I'm really tired of this. I want to block her but i know she will get mad. uuuuuuugh

Have one actual drink but make it something mostly clear, minimally flavoured and sparkly like vodka + soda + lemon, or gin + tonic with cucumber/lime/lemon (not all 3, obviously). Sip slowly. Then offer to pay for a round of drinks (ideally people will have had 2-3 to your one), and ask just for sparkling water with cucumber or lemon in it with yours. Say that you don't hold your alcohol very well and two is enough for you, make an excuse and head home early. Calories mitigated, work social connections maintained.

Did you do it, anon?

ffffffff this is what i get for not reading

not even joking

wear gothic. something about wearing all black and looking sort of alternative must be a little intimidating, because when I wear gothic i don't seem to get as many bus-creepers.

New thread

>> No.10089235

I had someone similar to that, she used to copy my outfits, my art style, she had a furry oc that looked just like me and at some point i found out she was copying my tweets and fb posts on her tumblr as her own. She also told me she had started wearing lolita like me and had just ordered several dresses but she never posted pics or wore them.
