I think instead of doing cosplay anymore I’m just going to dress up as an otaku for conventions. I found an ugly-cute shirt that would be perfect for it with some high waisted jeans and a headband. It would probably deter the con weirdos too,

I really want this to be over soon.

My mother is so easily scared by the fear-mongering going on that she is starting to stockpile things in case of emergency. It makes me so sad that she won't listen to reason. For reference- there was a planned power outage once at night and she had a panic attack thinking that North Korea attacked. This went on even after I showed her on my phone that the city had planned and warned us about the power outage.

True, but look at the date of the posts and then look at the current situation.

It spreads like a wildfire, is extremely easy to catch, is able to reinfect you, can mutate to become deadlier and harder to treat once it hits certain areas and there is 0 work done to try to prevent any of that on most countries, it's not even fear-mongering anymore once you consider the big picture. I'm don't know where you're from, but be glad that your mom is stockpiling because in other countries the markets are already empty and all the masks sold out.

Frankly, you should stockpile, like, right now. Don't wait until later. The big issue isn't going to be the virus yourself; most people seem to be recovering aside from the elderly and immunocompromised. Take the same precautions you would for the flu and you'll have good odds of being alright.

The reason you should stockpile is for the same reasons >>10347594 is pointing out. People are scared. The moment it hits your area, people are going to be terrified, especially if the sick people turn out to have been walking around asymptomatic prior to testing positive. Our grocery stores operate on a "just in time" mode; they have very little actual "in the back" stock and if they get hit with a surge of people, you're going to see bare shelves very quickly (as people did in Italy last week), and people who don't have food stored at home are going to start getting hungry.

If restaurants and grocery stores go on close due to transmission fears soon afterwards, those people are going to get desperate, and when people get desperate, they get violent. There might still be places for you to get food at that point, but they'll be packed with large numbers of scared, desperate people, which is a recipe for a.) viral transmission and b.) violence. At that point, fears of catching the virus takes a backseat to being shot or stabbed over the last can of beans or something. Having stored food means not having to be in that situation.

Realistically, the water and lights will stay on, so it won't be *too* bad, but definitely try to have a week's worth of food you can stash at home or something. Maybe grab some toilet paper and a carton of cigarettes for trading too, because people will definitely forget both in the initial rush and those will become highly-sought commodities too.

Remember: a person is smart. People are dumb, panicky animals.

>> No.10347730

Death toll might be higher, but the amount of infected might be higher too. Ergo, if you’re saying China lies about everything, you can’t actually deduce much from their information. Looking at the cases outside, there’s been 34 deaths out of 2459 cases (going off WHO’s data as of Feb 25th) so it seems less fatal than SARS. And I would like to add that even if China’s death toll is higher, that doesn’t actually say much about the virus but more about the population density of China and the quality of healthcare over there (facilities are probably super strained right now).

Honestly stop.

As long as you aren't a baby, elderly, or immunocompromised, you will be fine. If you are one of the above and catch it, go to the doctor. If you're healthy and catch it, stay home and don't infect others. If you're healthy, but infected and getting worse, go to the doctor.

I’m thinking about leaving my online and irl lolita communities. I want to continue wearing lolita but i just don’t feel inspired by the community and I think it negatively affects my self image. I also really want to work on shifting my perspective on aging and wearing what I want to wear as I age and unfortunately it feels like the online community can be pretty opposed to that idea.

I don't want to derail the thread further so this will be my last reply about it. I agree with your advice to stay home when ill, but the problem is that most people don't do that and there are cases where it takes a good amount of time to even notice the symptoms after you're infected plus most of the west doesn't even fucking test it properly or can detect it properly. And no, it does not only kill the old and clinically ill. In fact, almost all the live footage of people dying by it are young people. I know how scary it is, but ignorance and denial will only get you in bigger trouble.

Cosplay as a badass character that is standoffish. Have some friends go with you and you can have the best of both worlds.
Can't really talk though since my feels are about a con coming up with cosplayers Ive been following and would be excited to see but I'm also worried about making a fool of myself. Last con I went to I didn't have anything ready so I wore comfy normie clothes one of the days and saw a lolita/cosplayer I thought was my friend. They saw me and literally turned and faced the other way when I was walking past. I'm not really sure what I did but it really hurt and now I'm not so keen on going to the con anymore.

make it your goal dress!

For your health as well as well as the dress. Having a specific goal like that really helps me personally at least. I've lost 8 kilos in 4 months with some specific dresses in mind, from my own closet that I bought in a smaller size on purpose. Nothing beats that feeling of finally being able to put them on with ease and thinking 'omg I really am doing good, it fits!'

i think most people hold issues with qi lolita because qipao looks costumey, more so than other types of chinese clothing. qipao is also used in fetish clothing. i also feel like qipao is generally seen as sexier. pic is the style that dress is based on.

Single player games usually aren't my thing I play stuff like League, csgo, overwatch or even mmos, but ffix hold a soft spot in my heart. I remember buying the 3~4 disk ver for the ps1 off some kid in my middle school class and playing that shit all the time back then. it was the first game I ever felt really immersed in.

I think a friend of mine has a weird Instagram competition going on between us in their head. Awhile ago they made some comments to me about my follower count that seemed a little strange. If it had just been one comment I probably wouldn’t have thought anything about it, but they kept mentioning it in different conversations. I started looking at their Instagram closer because of this and it’s pretty obvious at this point that they’re buying most of their followers. The number of likes/comments is crazy low for their numbers. Every time I pass a follower milestone, the next day their follower count will magically jump up by exactly 250, 500, or 1,000. It’s always just enough to be a little ahead of where my account is at

I’m just kind of disappointed and annoyed because my perception of them was so far off. We’ve known each other for several years now and they used to come off as such a genuine, positive, and creative person and now they just seem so fake and I wonder if they ever even saw me as a friend in the first place?

Very unlikely unless you were a child or it was done by another man. The point is, men are disliked because of their agressive and sexual tendancies that is dealt with by 90% of women on the planet and even other men. That's not to say women aren't disliked as well, this whole site is practically based on it and even in this corner of it where it's okay to be a woman, we still get hate.

I was child for all but one instance when I was a teen. In fact, I couldn't to use my superior strength to get out of that time, because I refused to inflict violence on a girl. Actually, closer a look at data indicates around 42% of the perpetrators of sexual assault and rape are female. Women pull a lot if the same shit. They harass men; the coerce men into having sex with them, but they're not recognized as doing such, or even capable of doing it in the first place. Shoot, last flight I was on, an attendant snuck in a subtle squeeze of my shoulder. I'm sick of women pulling this garbage and simultaneously acting like their the only victims of it.

Straight from the article:
>The results were surprising. For example, the CDC’s nationally representative data revealed that over one year, men and women were equally likely to experience nonconsensual sex, and most male victims reported female perpetrators. Over their lifetime, 79 percent of men who were “made to penetrate” someone else (a form of rape, in the view of most researchers) reported female perpetrators. Likewise, most men who experienced sexual coercion and unwanted sexual contact had female perpetrators.

No shit, because they litterally had nothing else when they were (and still are in several parts of the world) considered sex objects, baby factories, and property to even the lowest ranked man.
>taking advantage of young boys, including their own sons, to use as stand-in husbands?
No one is denying that this doesn't happen, people in general are horrible. But on the scale that men do it in comparison, the scale where it is acceptable by law in many nations to take advantage of women or turn a blind eye when acid is thrown in their face, or baby girls fucked to death is a tad bigger of a deal. Especially with people actively trying to fight to keep laws in place to keep women in their place as breeding stock. Mind you that even in the U.S. several men who comitted rape get off with jail time while a teen who killed her rapist and trafficker gets prison.

Again, this is why men get hate. Personally I don't hate men, but you can't deny their uncontrollable thirst to wet their dicks else they shoot up some place to be something to consider.

How big are we talking exactly? shirred JSKs normally do fine because they don't enclose a specific shoulder size. Meta is a good brand to look for if you really need them wider, they were known as "fat girls' brand" and sometimes have shirred blouses that fit wider shoulders too (well, depending on how wide).

In my comm we had a groupchat where only longterm members (no itas) were invited.
We'd pick apart the outfits of the itas, joke about how we'd go out of our way to compliment their camera skills so they'd always be the ones taking the picture and never in it ruining our group shots, we'd work on secrets to make fun of the itas together, even posted them to staminarose/lolcow on occassion.
after a couple of years I realized that the people we did this too were almost exclusively teen girls, while we ourselves were all 25+. The only non-teen we did this too had a form of mental retardation, and we'd mimic how she stuttered when trying to speak, or had great difficulty comprehending things that came easier to others, we made the most secrets about her and she'd throw internet shitfits every time, crying about how she just wanted to be accepted by people who have similar interests but just got made fun of for being retarded and ugly again, and we'd screenshot her little tumblr whinings and share it to lolcow.

I never really felt bad about it honestly, maybe a bit bad for making fun of the teenagers, but they needed to learn the harsh reality of "lolitas aren't all lovelies" and that they were going to be treated poorly for showing up looking like shit while everyone else is in brand.

This post is exactly how i feel funny enough. I'm 5'2 and I have almost the exact measurements as you. I tried waist training for a short time, maybe that will help you? either way, your measurements are not that bad. With those, you probably fit in almost everything just fine besides some smaller skirts without any kind of shirring. I have a 26' waist and i also look horrible in a lot of stuff because it looks like I'm drowning and I know a lot of girls who are skinnier than me who struggle even more with that (and i'm an old school lolita, I haven't even tried the new honeycake). Please don't give up on lolita. trust me, you're good enough, and feeling bad about having a 28" waist is not rational at all. focus on being healthy and not things you can't solve immediately, like your body type. And again, try out a waist trainer! I only did it for a short time and i do feel like it helped me at least a little bit.

I feel like you guys are the people who didn't get any attention in high school because you're so painfully ugly or average looking so now that you feel some kind of power in a subculture, you've become desperate to assert power over people, even if they are at the bottom of the totem pole completely.

It’s true that I follow people because they’re cute. But not if they’re a raging ita. So if anything, you probably look fine. Wardrobe can be expanded and you’ll probably learn to polish your style over time. You don’t need to be peak perfection for follows on insta, just be pleasing to the eye.

Are discord servers any better or are they worse? I've never joined one but I'd consider it if that's where good discussion is happening.

No it’s worse. It’s a smaller group but its the same ppl you see on fb just having another place to bitch

this girl cheated on her ex after years of being with him and used me to get out of her relationship. She used me as a replacement as well as other guys in the circle and was cucking everyone.
whats the best way to walk forward from this?

maybe stop posting about it, Villy; that sounds like a good starting point. Also maybe get over this idea that everybody was cucked just because you feel like you were

>tfw i get too excited about my one project a year and end up spending all my money on new items instead of trying to thrift.

I'm sure I could find something that would work for dirt cheep but just searching online and finding exactly what I want/ need gets me so pumped I can't help but buy it. The most recent one was a pair of leather 16" biker boots I bought for 130 dollars.
