You obviously didn't read her post nor the thread. They had to use a lottery system because there were TOO MANY people who wanted to buy something. If those men in jeans were not there, there would still have been enough lolitas to buy everything. Baby does not have trouble selling out.

This is kind of embarrassing, but has anyone else been into lolita for so long that they can't get to grips with normie wear?
I wear lolita pretty much every day I'm not in work, and always have, with the exception of poor or unsuitable weather or activities. My normie wardrobe is very small and I have a really tough time figuring out what looks "nice" outside of lolita. Just today I walked through an entire shopping mall maybe 15 clothing stores, and there was a single normie dress I liked, but not really enough to buy.

I guess I'm glad I'm committed to this fashion long term at least. I play it pretty safe with coords so it could just be that I have no eye for any fashion.

>> No.10111547

What made you not want to buy the normie dress you liked?
I've been committed to lolita as my daily style for quite a few years now so I haven't worn normie clothes in a long time, and I honestly can't see myself going back to normie fashion at all. I can tell when normie clothes look nice and flattering, but that doesn't necessarily mean I'd feel comfortable wearing them myself, and for the most part I really wouldn't. Not to mention glaring quality issues that so much normie fast fashion has that immediately makes me think "I could buy brand for this price" and turn me off completely from buying anything in a normie store, even if it's cute.

I recently got a hold of a second hand copy of the Gothic&Lolita photo book. I forgot how many nice pieces H Naoto and BPN had. It's also kind of refreshing to see that Japanese lolitas also have tacky Nightmare Before Christmas and Living dead dolls in their junky rooms. After so much similar Lolita, it's a breath of fresh air to see all sorts of shapes and looks. A lot of them weren't Lolita, before someone picks a fight, I know. But still.

>> No.10111554

I have a lot of normie wear because I hate throwing things out until i'm 200% sure I won't ever want it again. That having been said, I do have non lolita clothes that still enter my rotation occasionally. I've been into goth looks way longer than i have lolita and it's nice to drop the skirts sometimes and go back to my studded leather collar, fishnet shirt roots.
I honestly think some of the lolitas on here would be happier if they had a secondary fashion to play around with when they got tired. It would help keep lolita fresh and fun for them.

It's still stupid. Lacemarket could easily prevent creation of more accounts with banned paypal email addresses or PayPal emails already in use. They could tell which accounts have her email connected to them. But they don't. Because they don't care.

>> No.10111568

All my "normie" stuff is pretty off-kilter and I mix and match everything when I'm not wearing lolita. There's a big difference between "not lolita" and "boring shit you can get at a mall", even when it comes to business casual type attire. Even higher end fashion can often be purchased relatively inexpensively on poshmark or ebay. I have a metallic copper wool/silk brocade D&G pant-suit I got for about $200 on ebay and I absolutely wear it to work. There's no reason to shop at Express or Forever21 if that sort of thing doesn't appeal to you.

I was a goth for years before I got into lolita, so my "normie" clothes aren't really even normie. BUT, I do dabble in other fashions, nanchatte, super girly silk slipdresses... I think the main thing is that 98% of my shit is black, and I put my own self into whatever style I wear, so I do find things at normie stores on occasion. I'm into quality though, so it's rare I find things in cheapo stores that I buy. sometimes the things can be cute, but if it doesn't feel good quality wise I'd rather spend elsewhere.

>> No.10111646

They should be showing the users PayPal address to the buyer so we can avoid scams. Technically anyone could send you an invoice if they knew your PayPal address and they saw you bought an item. Where's the confirmation I'm paying the right person?

I will continue to say this: BPN is legit my favorite brand. They offered a lot of variety in cuts, fit, textures...their effing jewelry was also the sickest. I'm collecting as much of their gunmetal stuff as I can from auctions.

Did you see the rest of the post? They didn't just use the same stock pictures, they used almost the exactly same pictures for everything, nevermind all the items magically have the same stains and damages. That plus the evidence picture that all her Paypals invoice mails are the same and her location are the same. I don't think it can get any more obvious.

I wear other jfashions and have been into alternative fashion long before getting into lolita.

My wardrobe is huge even though I cull a lot of things often, but it encompasses so many styles. I love thrifting and antique stores so I often find vintage things that I can wear both casually and with my lolita stuff. I find thrifting a much more enjoyable shopping experience than actual clothes stores. I don't think I've even stepped inside one in like, a decade or something.

>> No.10112035


nayrt, but a lot of the items that I see dissappear and get scalped the most often are special sets as they're cheaper (usually also less detailed), more limited, and some come in "exclusive" colours. (Fanny's story doesn't make sense to me for a new release, as you can see a lot of new releases just sitting around in webshops, and you don't need to go to Grand Bazaar for that. Exclusive Grand Bazaar special sets, on the other hand, do attract a crowd and a lot of scalpers, so it's more likely that's what she went to help buy).

So I can see how for a newbie, buying a matched set of jsk + headbow around $150-$300 is an easier way to dip their toes into the hobby, rather than buying the regular dress at $300 +upwards, and then the matching headbow at $30. Meanwhile the more experienced lolitas either like the print, like the simpler cut, or like some exclusive colourway. So I think it's difficult to rule out either side. (Which is probably why scalpers are focusing on this kind of item as it has a wider market appeal).

I don't have an answer, the polyester trend just makes it way easier for me to sit back and not really care whether or not I'm able to buy a release. Some people have been predicting a slowdown in Chinese economy, maybe if we all light a candle to Mana it'll happen faster and the scalpers will slink off to find something else to scalp.

>> No.10112038

Which jsk cut and color?

Oddly enough IW and Moitie were the two brands I have the most polyester dresses from before 2013. They were using polyester while other brands were using cotton.

I'll agree they used to do it much better though, it used to feel like they were using an interesting fabric because it's interesting, or feels good, or looks good. Whether it's a jacquard, or a pearskin, or imitation silk, or whatever, they used them so well it felt like the dress existed because of the fabric. Now there's a bit of a feeling like it's polyester because every other dress is polyester. Or something, idk.

(nayrt btw)

>> No.10112068

Also nayrt but I agree with you. I recently realized that many of my slightly older IW and some Meta pieces are poly and it never bothered me because the feel and drape was so nice and/or they keep their shape so well (I have one knife pleated Meta JSK from I think 2012? that has never needed to be ironed once and the pleats are crisp as ever). However most of my recent poly purchases have been a big disappointment. I’m especially bummed by my last few prints from AatP which look weirdly faded on the poly chiffon they used and it doesn’t drape nicely at all. I really wish they had used some other fabric for it because it would’ve looked so much better. Is it cheaper to print on poly chiffon than on the textured cotton they also use? That’s really the only reason I can think of to use it in these instances. They weren’t even s/s releases iirc.

>> No.10112071

Idk about price, but you can do sublimation dye onto polyester and the print won't run when laundered.

I think this is the big driver of brands moving towards poly.

That's the thing. I love cotton dresses but polyester and synthetics will always win out for me.

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

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

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

desu, having been homeless, I can understand missing things you love. Particularly in the early days. There were days when all I wanted to do was get dressed up and go to a restaurant. Days I wanted to go to dance class. Days I wanted to play arcade games. I couldn't spend every waking hour hounding people for jobs. You don't always have the ability, energy or even the opportunity. Staying in a shelter can be boring af when it isn't scary and you get cabin fever fast. Having a roof over your head is great but it doesn't change you into saint who's just grateful to be there overnight. Most people aren't raised that way anymore. Society doesn't pander to those who let go of all their superficial wants. Heck, the poorest of people often spend frivolously sometimes just to feel like they're not experiencing poverty. It fucking sucks.

Being homeless doesn't change who you are and the things you love, nor does it immediately strip you of any material, selfish desires. It can change your perspective forever, though you may not fully realize that until later. Until then, you might have a lot to complain about and to miss, and that's okay.

I still had my dog, but he had to stay with my friends. I could have sold him easily for 2 grand because they're rare here, but I would never because he's not replaceable.

I got the impression her wardrobe is elsewhere too. Like, I get it, she could sell some things and maybe she really should with some, even most, of it. But starting from square one can actually be much, much harder if the homelessness is only temporary. Having to buy furniture again was a nightmare and huge upfront cost. Having to get work clothes. I kept some of my formal wear because as much as I could have used the extra $200 it would cost me more than that to replace later on top of costs I'm already paying.

We all know how hard it can be to sell a wardrobe, especially quickly. Getting things cleaned and photographed and posted, unless you sell them for a song. If you are absolutely desperate, of course, but if there's a way out and it's coming, it may just be better to sit on it.

Dude, I used my dog because it was an example of one thing I could have sold for a lot of money but kept, to emphasize that homeless people don't necessarily have nothing of value ever. At the end of the day, it's just a dog, and a lot of people saw it that way and gave me shit for hanging on to him when that could have been bond on a rental. But it was worth it to me, you get what I'm saying?

Note that I also said she probably should sell most of her brand, but there are barriers to consider too.

>> No.10113497

I'm talking about having a different currency. $200 USD would be double that value here in buying power. $200 of our dollars would be half the buying power in America. My $2000 dog here would be $1000 over in America (though probably less as they are much more common and accessible and there's less prestige attached to them, if I understand, so maybe more like $400)

>> No.10113500


To be clear, if I could have sold that formalwear for $200 USD it would have given me $400 in my currency, and that makes it a little more appealing to sell as that's about as much as it would cost for me to replace it. You know?

My statement was that all brand lolita items can be aquired again, which anons denied and claimed there are items they've never seen on sale in years or even almost in a decade, what I doubt from my own experience.

I had this problem with Mary Magdalene, even dresses that fit looked weird because they were clearly made for someone more overall petite than me (sleeves too short, waist awkwardly high, etc).

>> No.10115127

In Canada, the US and Japan (I've shipped from all 3 countries), insurance is on the package's declared value, so if you declare the package to be $10, the insurance will only pay out that much, regardless of any other receipt you show them. That's why sellers always say that a buyer takes responsibility if the package gets marked down and then lost; in most countries, you won't get the true value back, only the declared value.

Also, the country receiving a package will charge import/custom fees on the declared value. Under-declaring is an attempt to commit fraud by not paying required import fees, hence why it's illegal. Usually they prove it by opening the package to check the contents; if there's an original receipt included, that's proof, but they can also (at least in Canada) arbitrarily decide the package contents are worth more, in which case the burden of proof is on you to convince the customs office that the declared value is accurate.

Basically, legit businesses have reasons not to do this, because it can impact their ability to keep doing business. Individual sellers are usually less fussed, since the odds of being caught are way lower if you send 10 packages a year versus hundreds.

Even if the supposed 'petty drama' that spanned multiple comms is gone, she's still a shitty seller who doesn't tell you about damages and stains.

In a community which has a robust secondhand market, that is a pretty big deal.

>> No.10116511

As long as the damage is fresh and untainted and hasn't been heat treated it's pretty possible to re-run with a color catcher once or twice (using a different color catcher each time) and remove almost all the displaced dye. But since that anon has re-washed it with vinegar, I dunno if it'll have the same effect.

I've done dumb shit like this too even though I know better. I just melted some lace on a blouse collar because I forgot the "put a sheet inbetween lace and iron" trick. Sigh.

You'll want to ask first what lace it is, since Meta is notorious for their raschel lace (and yes, that kind of plastic can still get stained with dye). A number of those are made by serging the ruffle lace together with the fabric. I have a serger and I'd still be hesitant to do it as the knife on the serger sometimes cuts the lace at an angle.

Advice could totally work for old school Baby though, those are uniformly cotton lace and doable.

Sorry to jump in. Hope OP can get the stain out if she does the colour catcher thing. Dylon also makes an "excess colour run dye remover" that you can also try.

Her coords are very cute but she nasty as fuck. I bought a dress from her on LM and it had nasty undisclosed stains and smelled bad. I was shocked because she had 100% positive feedback at the time. Then I did a double look and I say that at least 1/3 of her "positive" feedback shouldnt have been marked as positive at all! It was people politely complaining about bad communication or undisclosed damage. And yet they had left positive feedback. Scary

Was going to post this on the online comm thread but couldnt find it. I'm really not trying to start a REEE fattie chan arguement but really? I'm over people saying this kind of thing about lolita: 130 cm is 51 inches - that's gigantic, is this really the norm for plus sizes even in America? I dont think you have to have a bust smaller than 92 to wear lolita but it definitely makes the clothes look so much better. I just dont get when people complain about brand sizes just wear something else!!

>> No.10116635

Americans have the most interesthing perception on what is plussize or not. Everytime I am inside on of those groups with Plus-size Americans they scream that you are not plussize if your bust is still below 120cm, that’s like 6XL and extremely obese were I live...
When I ask how they would qualify the people between 95-120cm, they say it’s normal and that those girls don’t have any issues finding Lolita clothing. Sure whale-chan, sure...

>> No.10116636

I’ve heard of women who take their heels off when they’re out clubbing and tired and/or falling down drunk, but I’ve never seen it myself. My lolita comm was the first place I saw girls change into and out of clothes (and wigs) in the middle of the day and I’ve always thought it was kind of awkward, especially when they do it in public instead of a bathroom or something.

Why can’t people get it through their heads that plus size in an Asian fashion like lolita has a different meaning than plus size in countries where a third of adults is obese? 99% of our clothes come from Japan, China and Korea where a >100cm bust is large or plus sized. Get used to it or get into Western alt fashion instead. Several of my local retro/vintage webshops consider a 72cm waist XS so maybe try there.

>> No.10116638


>> No.10116639

I feel like after 95 cm you are kind of considered plus size in lolita and there is nothing wrong with that - the sizing is just different. I dont know why it's a hard concept. After 95 cm you probably need shirring to fit into pieces but you are well within the measurements of most AP jsks with shirring, so things should also fit well.

The submission range will be pretty wide, but realistically, they lean towards models in the same range as their Japanese models, so 5'2"-5'5" with under 90cm bust, sometimes shorter or a bit taller (because of their usual dress length, it's one modeling gig where shorter girls have an advantage - they picked a girl from my comm who is under 5'!). You can google to see photos from their past con fashion shows to get a feel for their standards.

You should apply even if you're outside that range, though - getting picked for modelling always has an element of chance, since it depends on what mood the designer wants to convey and how you match that versus the other applicants, and also what pieces they're showing. Good luck!

>> No.10116771

When basically everyone around you is fat to some degree, your default thinking for the average body ends up being pretty warped honestly.
I know, I was obease in the US but bc the average was generally my size or bigger I would constantly berate how I was accepting of my body and “fat positivity/acceptance” or whatever. Then I moved out of there, and suddenly I saw how big a fat cow I was lol and more importantly how unhealthy I was. I’ve lost weight since then and if it weren’t for my body type (ie I’ve got big shoulders and hips) I’d fit into brand just fine~
I understand there’s big people who just no matter their weight won’t fit into brand, but sometimes (a lot of the time) you just need to loose the weight

>> No.10116784

I'm not sure about waist measurements? They seem to prefer thin girls but they've certainly picked more average-sized girls too. Just don't lie about your measurements, if you promise a 66 cm waist in your application but show up on the day-of with a 70 cm waist, that creates a huge hassle for everyone.

Why is she even using bust size for this argument? Plenty of people have normal/small (even by Japan standards) waists but large busts. No one calls a skinny person "plus sized" because they have a 90+ cm bust.

I’ve noticed that a lot of fat girls blame all their fit issues on their bust, I guess because it makes them feel less fat somehow, as if losing weight wouldn’t make a difference so there’s no point in trying.

I lost 55lbs (185 to 130 which is thin for 5’7”), went from about a size 14 to a size 6 and my bust only lost about an inch and a half. The actual breast stayed the same size, I just lost fat from around my ribs. Some people just have larger frames and so even if they lose weight they will always have larger measurements. I’m so sick of people assuming all lolitas with “larger” measurements are fatties. I worked hard to lose weight and I’m sick of being told I can’t fit into brand because I need to lose more weight.
