Are there any imgs out there of plus-size girls wearing nanchatte? My google-fu hasn't helped much aside from an image of a girl in a Bodyline's seifuku slapping her foot on her bathroom counter, and I'd like to see what the fashion looks like on others before my small haul arrives.

Bodyline is usually cheaper on the website. They're almost always having 50% off sales and free p-mail (if you're ok with no tracking). Usually if anyone is selling it on LM, they're a scalper or overcharging for a piece bodyline no longer manufactures.It's pretty uncommon to find fairly priced BL pieces on LM because they depreciate in value so much they're not even worth shipping. You might also have luck finding bodyline pieces at swap meets or from other comm members who are willing to sell for very low prices.

The 'kei' suffix is Japanese and means 'stereotypes of x' or 'things associated with x'

It does not mean style or fashion. It's used in j fashion typically with English words. This is why 'fairy-kei' is a style but 'menhera-kei' is an insult

Yes, basically it's like saying 'I am wearing things associated with faeries' ; 'kei' as style is a colloquial and only applicable in certain situations

I'm sure you have plenty of real japanese J-fashion friends if you think 'kei' means style.

Why don't you give メンヘラ系 a google? You'll find some 'lovely' articles on crazy obsessed women.

Also check the info tab on fymenhera

Reminder again that menhera comes from 'mental healther' and is first and foremost an activism/mental health community, so the 'menhera kei' insult came about referring to those in that community before 'menhera' was known as the fashion that came from the style

If you're trying to wear ouji and tall you're going to have an easier time than lolita unless you're "thicker" tall person (like proportionally scaled up as opposed to thin and lanky tall) because Asian clothes even the women's fit ouji stuff doesn't account for as much body curvature as standard western ones. The men's fit will be bigger overall in some areas though.

You're maybe gonna have to just try to wear what matches your measurements and you think would suit you and learn from trial and error. That's how people with different body types or looks approach most fashion. Trying what they like and finding a middle ground between the things they love and what "suits" them or compliments their body and face best.

It ALWAYS arrives the same day, the lady at the sorting facility said they definitely sent it, and my local post office claims they didn't receive it. I asked if they could maybe double check to see if it's just hidden somewhere and someone forgot to scan it, but they're just like "no if it came here then we definitely scanned it".

I thought that was a rumor (the fat part) until I saw Misako's Hiroshima vlog. Most Hiroshima people aren't uglier than average but many of her fans taking photos and all were overweight (by western standards even) hikikomori otaku looking girls--like imagine the purple haired main character from "Kiss Him, Not Me!" but before she lost weight and in lolita. People think brands are catering to the western market with bigger sizes but honestly it's probably catering to increasing overweight population of lolitas in Japan. Shopgirls and many others are still thin or normal looking but a good bit are somehow still tubby and sweaty and look like they smell like sausages despite being in a decent coord just from seeing their face and hair grease.

Depends. If the items have to go on over my head First I do half my hair routine (the broad strokes like blow drying & curling), then I put on the clothes, then do makeup, then I finish my hair off with the last part of the styling Like putting it in a nice updo. I finish the hair last because if I’m running late I’ll just cut my losses and leave it down in a simple style where as clothing and makeup are non-negotiable. If the clothes can zip it button up and I don’t have to pull them over my head I do that last so I don’t get makeup on them.

Hi! Im female and i never wore any j-fash but i really like lolita.

And my question is, can i perform shibari on a lolita? (Like being an artist, not a model) Before you throw rotten tomatoes on me I'll say it won't be anything sexual, not even 0.0001% of lewdness. No ahegao, no fuck me pose, no fetishes, no-thing-li-ke-this.

However, shibari is usually seen as part of bdsm culture that is highly sexualised by common people and shibari is higly sexualised even inside the bdsm community unfortunately. (Signs deeply)

And i dont want to make it worse for your community that already struggles from tons of pervs.

So, would you advise me on (not) doing this?

If you met a lolita who happened to be interested in BDSM and they consented to it I don't see an issue with it but lolitas don't generally mix kink with their fashion. Only sissies and the ddlg crowd ever seem to want to and they are always ita.

Shibari and other rope things are also risky/somehwat dangerous given the constricting that some of the ties do on people's bodies and lolita is a fashion meant for wearing around doing normal average things, not strenuously physical activities or those that require manipulating your body position a lot. It would wrinkle and mess up anyone's dress and coord depending on the tie...it just overall seems like a waste of time and energy even if you could find someone willing.

I have a friend who is a long time members of the community and will mix shibari with fashion sometimes, HOWEVER I don't think you can just start mixing shibari with lolita without having a very good grasp of lolita to begin with. (My friend has been a lolita for over a decade). Maybe just try to learn standard lolita styling first, join your local com and wear the fashion so they understand you aren't just a random kinkster, but someone who appreciates the fashion, and then eventually you can tastefully introduce shibari. You'll still get some hate because there's always people who will hate, but your outfits will be better and there will be some people who will support you.

No lolita is going to just let you experiment with them if they don't trust you and you don't understand the basic styling of lolita

For second, kind of a yes. Lolita skirts have a unique shape that is not comparable to the shape of dresses from other fashions or standard formal wear. To give said dresses the shape though, you need to fill them out with petticoats, hoopskirts or a combination of both.
But to ensure the shape will turn out correctly you will need atleast one lolita petticoat for shape. For layering underneath you can also use other petticoats. Just make sure your petticoats are about the same length and about a handwidth shorter than your lolita skirt.

Why real Japanese sailor fuku is so unbelievably ugly?
Skirts have ridiculous lenghth of being neither short enough nor long enough to look nice. Top is usually very loose fitting. Every girl on pics i googled was looking like she is wearing her older sister's uniform. Socks are ugly too and looks like its dad's socks and their school shoes looks like my grandma's orthopedic shoes. And colours are so dull and don't go together like the most boring shaded of green, brown, grey and dark blue.

I was actually horrified. This uniform can't flatter anyone. Every girl wearing it looks like pauper gorilla.

I mean there are lots of people wearing nanchatte and they look nice. There are lot of people wearing cosplay sailor fuku and they look nice. Why can't japanese schools make good uniforms?

The point of the uniform is to be as sexless and neutral as possible. Girls AREN'T supposed to look cute in them. And it's actual children wearing the uniforms so if they're oversized it's probably so they have growing room for however long they may need it.

When I lived in Japan I didn't notice seifuku looking especially frumpy, just that the skirts were quite long compared to nanchatte. Are you some dumb maleposter expecting tweenage girls (considering seifuku is most common for middle schoolers in Japan) to wear tight sexy school uniforms like in anime?

Obviously I don't know what you look like, but I might know where that feeling is coming from.
Even though I'm not overweight at all and I like my figure, a lot of lolita used to make me feel frumpy, broad and generally clownish. I felt like my face and body would never be delicate enough to make the frills look like they belonged.
Turns out for me, the problem was all cut and colours. Just lengthening the straps on some of my jsks made a world of difference. Wearing long sleeves instead of puff sleeves. I discovered that Innocent World's regular bodice cut is the worst for people with a large waist/bust difference like me. Finally, pastels and creams look plain wrong with my skin tone (although curiously enough white is fine).

The point is, a dress can be gorgeous but if it doesn't fit your body and face it'll always look off even if other girls pull it off fine. They in turn probably have styles that look bad on them as well.
So if you can, experiment with colours and styles and cuts until you find something you feel beautiful in. I went through a whole bunch of dresses that I thought I looked just ok in until I found the style that made me really happy.

If you have small frames with a thick edge they will always draw the eye more than the makeup, so it's go hard or go home. I don't actually use eyeliner as I find it fiddly, I pack on shadow to a damp angled brush and basically do a thicker, smudgier outline with a slight cat-eye. It's also to clean up if you screw it up because it's just eyeshadow as opposed to many eyeliners which are waterproof.
If the problem is mainly for photos, start training yourself (selfies are excellent for this) to not derp and still look in the direction of the camera without glasses on.

I don't know where else to ask this...

Does anyone know of this?

I'm trying to find out about a sweater design of the movie *Interstellar*

In this design, there was TARS and a girl and the art was very very similar to Kira Imai.

The person I saw wearing it said they got it when they were in Tokyo. I'm kicking myself for not asking to take a photo.

Does anyone know any similar artist to Kira Imai?

Maybe not the best question to ask, but isn't this thread for stuff like that? Anyways, I want to influence my wardrobe with "lolita" and shit, I don't know if I'm willing to wear a dress daily, though. I'd like to know what could be nice examples to wear....jeans/other pants and still be able to lolify it. Is this even possible? I feel it should be. Pls no ouji, it's sometimes cute but only with shorter pants.

Just get into other jfashion if you cant commit to wearing skirts.

If the end goal is lolita and you want to transition your style, cute jfash is a good casual in-between option. Then slowly start encorporating skirts until people stop caring that it seems like something "you wouldn't do" and then go for a full lolita coord. I sort of did that so people around me in my daily life wouldn't be taken by suprise when i decided to start buying lolita.

You can google translate the first few GLBs, the anniversary volume has several pages on the history too I think. Even Kera had written about it in the early 2000s and then again around 2011 but i'm frankly too lazy to search the exact volumes. Some lolita specific books too, like the one focussed on misako and the two volume books explaining lolita, they are black and pink. The english book "Gothic and Lolita" has a two page Introduction with the history too. Otherwise dig around egl and even btb and other lj communities and combine it with the wayback machine. Some old link sections should still have links of the websites/foruma we used before lj and of course there are various articles with bits of information posted on egl. Depending on what aspect you want to research, there is a lot.
