I know we are not EGL (nor am I pining for the olden days) but we also know that the EGL mods got schooled in what to omit to keep the LJ group from posting infringing stuff. So it’s safest to go by that.
Also question: does that mean the Indy designers who mostly use Spoonflower (or some other print on demand services with little to no quota) also have inferior printing methods compared to most brand as well? Has someone written about the differences anywhere?

Where do you get old-school lace from? I don't know the different names of lace but I'm looking for some like this that's on the collar. I'm not US-based so shipping to europe is probably going to be crazy but aliexpress/taobao links would be appreciated since I can do an order from there.

Anon in another thread was complaining that Moitie sizes have been way off. Specifically Neo Gothic Arch, saying it was about 8 larger then the listed size. The advertised size is:

Bust 79~87cm
Waist 63~74cm

Does that mean if I am 92bust and 75waist I should fit because the real measurements are a max of 95b x 82w?

>> No.10201655

You could but squeezing yourself into a smaller dress ain't a good look honey

>> No.10201657

To everyone who has their Silent Moon already, how is the quality?

>> No.10201727

8cm larger? I'm starting to think the measurements they provided are recommended body size and not the flat measurements? I'm sorry but no, it's likely not going to fit you very well if your bust is 92cm. You will need more than 3cm room. A jsk is generally worn with blouse, so 5~6cm or more room is better for a comfortable fit. The OP version is going to fit you very well though.

>> No.10201732

Friend of mine bought it, the print looks great but the lace was kind of meh. Very average, unremarkable lace.

>> No.10201743

God fuck ebxbexiko.

>> No.10201766

I'm that anon, and while you might fit it remember that the bodice is extremely short and a larger bust will take up more space in it. So it might look awkward, in one of those "it fits but it doesn't sit right" ways. If I'm honest the JSK is an overall odd design.

I think this was true with their older releases, when they did the 82cm bust/64cm standard, I believe that's also roughly the size of an average Japanese mannequin (or at least it was in the 2000s). So the patterns being made to fit that makes sense. I think this changed over time though, as they got different designers and allowed a very slow size creep. But with NGA I don't think that's true. I'm at the minimum measurements and have to pull the corset lacing in completely, which creates a really ugly back and messes with the way the pleats lie on my butt. It just isn't a flattering look if you're at the low end of the sizing.

I just measured it for you Anon, I hope you see this before you buy. The bust is about 95cm, from the outside and over the cups. The waist is about 82cm give or take, from the outside. I did double check against my own body (figured out how much I laced in the back, then added that to my own measurements, in addition to running the measuring tape around. If anyone is curious the lacing panel is about 25cm wide with about 20cm of that usable, and the bodice is about 20cm long at the center front.) and came up with about the same numbers.

Your waist might be a tight fit, dunno about the bust. I've tried my best to get accurate measurements, but it's a buy at your own risk situation.

Yeah, anon basically explained it. They aren't selling anything I want, but a few days ago someone on mercari listed a lot of cheap moitie with the remark that they want them to go to someone who will wear them (seller is a mother): https://www.mercari.com/jp/u/217190178/
I noticed that one person bought almost all of it and as it turned out it was ebxbexiko once again. If you look at the feedback of the sockpuppet account they use to buy, there isn't a single thing they are currently listing they didn't immediately turned over to scalp. I wonder if they are even a lolita.

I wish lolibrary was better desu.

We should start a Wiki page where we can have users edit and add pages for the brands, the story of lolita, any good information online (such as Misako's/Mana's interviews, etc).

Imagine a database with a search engine that doesn't suck!! individual dresses/releases pages with important information such as materials, retail price, etc, maybe last price seen on lacemarket (this could be user submited with proof I guess??), any re-releases, special notes such as cleaning tips, maybe a gallery section for example coords. I feel like something like this might encourage participation.

Supposedly the developer has started working on lolibrary again but I wish there were weekly public updates and if the owner can’t keep it running with actual frequent updates, and finally open it up to volunteer submissions like they said they would ages ago, that they would just ask within the community about someone else taking it over who could do more active updating. It has really fallen behind at this point.
Someone new could start a new site, the old old lolibrary is still in way back machine and frankly more simple to update and more complete with older entries than the new one. The current lolibrary owner and developer have really fallen down on the project.

Good luck with anyone taking over the lolibrary and maintaining the current state because it’s an incorporated nonprofit now rather than a community owned resource. The owner let the developer implement a very overpowered, cloud based, resource gobbling web architecture/framework and that’s also why it is a ~300/month behemoth now instead of a simple volunteer-maintained searchable database with photos. The dev has said a couple of times that “she’s back and working” on it but nothing significant really comes of it and there’s no sign of ever letting people in the community submit entries which is what most of us asked for again and again, so we can volunteer and the updates get done with more people doing the data entry and the dev just spinning up the new pages. I suspect that to catch it up will also jack the monthly running costs. They need to communicate with us, and be frank.

The lolita community fights about shit like this though and sides get taken so there’s no guarantee of any community support at all to do the large amount of work if someone WERE to implement something fresh, and more like the old lolibrary where we could submit things and the sidebar has details of the recent updates...

So it’s kind of a mess.

Why did the person who ran Hello Lace just quit and not recover from the malware attack and re-build the website with the most recent clean backup of their database?

This whole "horror story" is actually just a story of how much of a coward Lor is. Instead of sneaking around, doing covert private purchases over the course of MONTHS she should have just told them the fucking truth.

"Hello! Thank you so much for reaching out to me and offering me goods from your site to review. However, with the intention to have a more nuanced review I tried to order items from you privately. The item I wanted was listed in stock, but I got no confirmation of my order being processed. When I inquired about it I was told it was out of stock, despite still being listed as available on your website. This is a technical problem which makes a very negative shopping experience. I am not comfortable promoting a website which does not function correctly and displays inaccurate stock. Until you fix this problem I will not be making a review. Please reach out to me when this problem has been fixed and we may continue our business together."

There! Would have saved Lor a lot of anxiety, saved both her and the company a lot of time AND given the company proper VALID feedback. All throughout the video I was just disgusted by her dishonest confrontation fearing coddling. As much as Lor wants to appear as a business woman she is continually painting the image of a childish teenagers who thinks she's smarter than she is. I don't care if she was young and depressed back then! She told this story present day without reflecting over her own shady behaviour. You got harassed, but you also refused to tell the company the truth! Be honest in business! How hard can it be?

>> No.10203350

You are very dumb. When you are a YouTuber you get a ton of junk for review purposes, companies send it for free to whatever address is available for the chance the yter will do a review on it. There isn’t an established commitment there and tons of stuff get nothing.

The company knew that but still harassed Lor on multiple platforms (instead of through the business email she has)...because of what? Oh they felt entitled to her time. They don’t want valid feedback they know they are shit, they want a shill.

She was emailing them on her personal orders but using her yt email for her order wouldn’t be a fair review. It’s not hard to understand why.

>> No.10203353

No you! She endured the harassment out of cowardice and spinelessness. If she had told them earlier that she did not want to go through with the review they would have stopped. She didn't tell them a proper no for MONTHS, even when she had legitimate reasons to do so! Huge waste of time, for everyone involved!

Okay, so say you have a stapler. Someone designed that stapler. They decided where it curves, how square it is, where a grip sits if there is one, added any grooves for detailing. Its a specific design that someone made. Not a particularly innovative stapler, there are no unique patents on it, but it’s a stapler that someone in the company designed. Now say that stapler is selling pretty well and another company buys one and copies it. Maybe in new colors or with different materials and manufacturing, but it’s clearly the same design. They then go and sell this stapler. No one cares as this is not illegal or unusual. It’s just a stapler, and saying “you can’t have a stapler that’s rounds this way” gets into ridiculous lawsuit territory. Now, some OTHER company contracts a pop artist to draw an illustration that they print on their limited edition stapler line. If another company takes that illustration and puts it on their stapler, depending on where it is manufactured and where the company is located this is illegal. It’s not just design choices for the stapler, it’s a copy and pasted image from an illustration—which has legal protections in many countries. Even when it isn’t illegal due to local laws, a lot of people won’t like it. Why? Because it’s someone’s artwork they clearly copied. NOW is it unfair that societally we don’t value illustration and design the same? Maybe. But, again, it would also produce a lot of petty and loosely based lawsuits that would be a mess. So we are here.

In small hobbies, the fellow hobbyists are the ones that have to boycott replica sellers and denounce the, then gate-keep the hobby to keep the fakes out to somewhat dry up the market for them, because there is no real other practical ways for us to stop them.

That because the process to protect fashion designs is so difficult and ultimately moot that design replicas are morally correct?
That because everyone else does it, we shouldn't correct, inform, or even respond negatively when someone chooses to wear a dress (that some random company obviously ripped) when there was money exchanged that could have gone to further benefit lolita brands?
That because It's non-print it's not worth remarking on?

I totally agree with you, they’re being obtuse.

They’re just cheap classic lolitas. They want to have their cake and eat it too.

Since it’s a summer version of the Catherine op, I think something similar will happen with sales. Initially, many thought it looked unflattering, but after people saw it on others, it sold out and became somewhat wanted.

Like the previous Catherine op, while it’s a cutsew and a little stretchy, it won’t accommodate boobs and chub well.

Eh I personally find it flattering that the art is emulated in prints, but I could also see why others still may not like it. Then again, Catholics don't worship images the same way we worship "on" objects. Using these objects as props is disrespectful.

In any case, Catholics do not like when people do this, so your opinion on whether they are right to like it or not does not matter.

>> No.10204842

I think the point also is that rosaries are not meant to be worn, ever, even by catholics. They are specifically meant to be a hand held item.

No, Catholic. So I asked.
Answer: Only blessed and consecrated items need to be treated specially. Same with the broken communion wafers. They literally for and throw the broken ones in the trash before transubstantiation. After then yes, they have to be treated specially. But before, they are just fancy crackers. And an unblessed rosary is just a necklace.

I mean sort of? Rosaries aren't worn around the neck, but they've been worn on belts and as bracelets and rings. Pic related is a 17th century painting of Saint Bruno with a rosary around the belt.

Also I don't think they're actually rosaries unless they have the right bead arrangement. If anything what lolita brands are releasing are rosary-styled necklaces.

>> No.10204878

The anon in >>10204806 is correct. It’s not a true rosary in the religious sense until a priest blesses it. When I went to Catholic elementary school, we had one craft day when we made our own rosaries out of plastic beads, yarn, and crosses cut out of plastic sheets. The priest came into class to say a blessing that took less than a minute, and then they were real, official rosaries. The rosary I made was the prettiest in the class, AND gayest, because I selected every color of the rainbow (not even knowing about the pride flag), and wouldn’t you know it I grew up bi. But I digress.

Yes, it’s faux pas within Catholicism to wear rosaries like necklaces, since they are tools of prayer, not jewelry. But if the wearer wasn’t raised in the religion I wouldn’t blame them. (And if they were raised in it, I’d be concerned about their long-term memory, not piety.)

Most Japanese people will not know these tiny quips of Catholic dogma. Moitie names their necklaces as rosaries, and photographs them being worn like necklaces. What else are lolitas supposed to assume on how rosaries are used?

It’s the same when Western tourists in Asia put on Buddhist rosaries as bracelets. Yes, people practicing the religion will likely notice. At worst, they might sigh, or think it a bit tacky. But ultimately they’ll not care.

I wear gothic lolita, and while I’m not a practicing Catholic anymore, I personally would never wear a rosary like that, even a non-blessed one, just because I would feel like I’d be betraying my sweet first grade teacher. It’s easy enough to wear a cross or crucifix instead. But other lolitas who wear rosaries like necklaces? Don’t care. Because A) that’s what Moitie prescribed as part of the aesthetic, B) Moitie sure as hell did not get them blessed by a Catholic priest, so they’re not real rosaries in the religious definition anyway, and C) I don’t want to be a killjoy, let people have their fun.

>> No.10205028

Seems like bait but I’ll bite.

Apparently 4chan doesn’t like the “aesthetic clash” between the Western antique aesthetic with coverage of the hijabi.

In contrast, girlschannel raves about how hijabi lolitas can blend a foreign fashion and their own local culture. Not surprising, since Japanese culture is littered with incidents of taking a foreign fashion and fusing it with local sensibilities. Check out woodblock prints after the Meiji restoration, which shows Japanese women in clothing that are Western jackets and skirts, but the fabric is definitely Japanese weaving. The Japanese know that blending two completely different aesthetics together is hard work, and admire people outside Japan who can do it.

Personally I like seeing hijabis in lolita, especially when they color coordinate everything. Jeans as leg coverage, I’m not impressed with, but pastel pants that match, not too bad. They’re enjoying the fashion in a way they’re allowed to, and this is the way they can publicly share photographs of their coords without getting yelled at by their family, or worse. The hijabi lolitas might even be taking off their hijabs and put on full wigs and hairstyles, and enjoy private tea parties at home while the men are gone, but making any photographic evidence of that can put them in a load of trouble.

In my opinion, a hijabi lolita with full color coordination will look a hundred times better than someone who flounces into the fashion with things like: heavy drag makeup, satin, scratchy lace, or zero eye for warm vs cool colors.
