Interested in knowing how many (if any) of /cgl/ collects jfash magazines (including mooks/seasonal lookbooks), or magazine appendixes.

Some discussion questions

> Do you collect jfash magazines?
> Which ones do you like/follow? How do you follow them (buying, social media, etc.)
> What do you look for in magazines? Style, makeup, hair, interviews, etc?
> Do you prefer periodic magazines or brand look books?
> Do you care if magazines come with an appendix/freebie item? Are you willing to pay more for them, or buy the item separately?
> Does it bother you if people sell the magazine and freebie items separately?
> With the closure of many big old jfash magazines and then relaunching on the internet, how do you think the magazine industry will move in the future?
> What would your dream magazine feature?

I have some GLB, some Kera, a few Ageha and Larme and I've bought 4 mooks with lolita brand items. I think a couple of the Ageha or Kera had little bonus items too. One Lolita Bible had a hardcover IW date book that I really liked.
I miss GLB, and I really liked lolita designer interviews and lolita street snaps. Also the travel features with snaps, and the occasional on-location photo shoots.

fat reminder that the first 50 issues of fruits are available for free viewing and download in high quality at archive.org

I know somebody who has 60 issues of Kera. I’d like to flick through them all one day.

God fruits makes me so sad now, I really wish the good old magazines would stop closing

Same, I feel like lolita culture is just typical instagram normie culture now- dressing for internet points. I miss the blogs and interviews and magazines of the past. I wish the old GLB comic strips were also translated

RiP Ageha
I liked some of the makeup and hairstyles, especially the few special kimono issues.

Did all 3 of their complete collections already sell? I really wanted to buy one but they said they want to sell it to libraries..

>> No.10226639

I have 64 issues. Except for old Kerouacs, they really aren't hard to find.

Girlism magazine has much of this stuff, including little gifts from brands. Lolita culture may be pretty luckluster in Japan/the west these days but it's going strong in China.

I love the old GLB strips. There's something really magical about them.

>> No.10232234

Can westerners buy Girlism?
