What do you guys put in your bio on dating sites? I never know whether to mention fashion stuff but all the photos of me are in lolita :/

>> No.10368332

I usually call it "Japanese lolita fashion" or explain it as "alternative fashion". Normies seem to understand the word "alternative" to mean an established fashion more like punk or goth as opposed to you just dressing for an adult baby fetish or something.

>> No.10368341

just say lolita fashion. weed out the normies and find those into it.
You might want to clarify you aren't into dd/lg (assuming you aren't)?
I've not seen many lolitas on dating sites, but half the ones I have found are dd/lg

>> No.10368367

I really feel like selling my large lolita collection and quitting lolita but now is the worst time. It feels more like an anchor around my neck than a pleasure, and I hate how much time it all takes to organize the clothes & hand wash it all and I feel pressured to wear it all the time to justify the money I’ve spent on my 75 main piece collection. It feels like it’s keeping me from living a better life, but I hate that certain people in my life would feel like they were “right” about the fashion or my love of it, or think I had only been wearing to try to get internet points.
I’m also worried I’m just in a decluttering phase and that I’ll regret selling it all a couple months later. I’ve tried downsizing but my taste is so varied that there isn’t a lot of duplication. Selling even a few items makes me feel really constrained in my coording and then I get frustrated and up buying more again. I haven’t bought anything in awhile so it’s not a compulsive buying thing, I just feel like my collection is a complete whole and I need to sell it all at once if I’m ever going to sell it at all. But that’s a huge leap to take and it’s almost weirdly embarrassing

>> No.10368395

Sounds like what you need to do is buy more lolita clothes, not less. Ones that are easier for everyday - pre-owned pieces that you don't mind messing up, cutsews you can put in a delicates bag and throw in the machine, solid-color pieces that aren't at risk of bleeding, pieces that fit loosely so you can move comfortably, long hemlines so you can bend without worry of flashing your petti, or maybe even other jfashion like Liz Lisa. Then you can wear the more special pieces when you do have the energy.

I would just flat out say "I wear Japanese Lolita fashion. No, it has nothing to do with the Nabokov book. And no, it's nothing sexual."

>> No.10368495

Please don't do that anon. If you phrase it this way people will immediately think they are supposed to think of a sexual connotation even if they didn't consider that at all in the first place. The suggestion of a mixed set of pictures is good though. If anything having some pictures in lolita could be a good conversation starter and might (emphasis might) weed out some guys who don't want a girlfriend that 'dresses weird'.

>> No.10368521

>If you phrase it this way people will immediately think they are supposed to think of a sexual connotation even if they didn't consider that at all in the first place.
It's 2020. People have access to the internet and saying "daddy" is a common phrase. Trust me, lots of people will be thinking it.

Even if they were blessed not to know about the horrors of DDLG, at the very least they'll think of the book because it's literally the name of the damn thing. Most articles written for normies about lolita have to clarify that it's unrelated to the Nabokov book for that exact reason. A normie knowing the pedophilic synopsis of the book and then seeing what appears to be "children's clothes" will probably think it's some underage fetish.

I don't think there's anything inherently wrong with taking pictures of yourself. Of course it can easily become something self-destructive, but I don't see the problem with taking a photo of yourself to commemorate your cute outfit. I'm kind of jealous. I wear lolita and I like how I look in it but I have such a huge mental block about photos that I can't share my coords even though I'd like to.

I’m so fucking sad. Dresses that used to fit me a couple of months ago can’t zip up past my waist and bust. I have also gotten new dresses that won’t zip up either. I know I need to get up and do some exercise and eat better, but honestly I feel so down that I don’t have the energy to get up and do exercise and the fact that I can now only fit my shirred dresses makes me even more depressed. I don’t even want to get up on a scale cause I’m so scared of seeing how much my weight has gone up cause I know for sure I’ve gained quite a bit. I want to get up and do exercise so I can lose the weight, but I never find a consistent diet I can stick to so I always end up quitting and gaining even more weight. It fucking sucks ass and I’m so tired of being fat. I want to wear my clothes and I want to be able to wear them comfortably and quarantine doesn’t help at all cause I just wanna lounge around all day.

Get up the courage to weigh yourself and get a calorie tracking app that can tell you how much you need to eat a day to reach your goal without any exercise. It really helped me lose weight with minimal exercise when I gained some depression weight a couple of years ago. Of course, it's better to exercise if you can but when I'm feeling low I find it much easier to cut down on food than exercise for weight loss. Hope you feel better soon.

>> No.10368813

that's not cgl-related, but let's assume it is. the rate itself is not extreme, and it's not even reliable without a large sample size. so if you're overweight+ bmi, then good job - this is what focusing on a goal is like. it does take up a lot of mental effort. make sure you're still getting vitamins and nutrients. if you're not overweight, you do need to slow down or stop. I suggest focusing on your mental health to achieve this - getting good sleep, having a good cry, journaling your thoughts, avoiding toxic communitues. A healthy mind will enable you to be physically healthy.

Same for you, a healthy mind will enable a healthy lifestyle. Focus on the mental parts first. Then focus on getting the tools that make your work easier - nice workout clothes that make you excited to get ready, a food scale, nice cookwear and tupperwear, apps that help you track your progress. Make it easier for yourself. If something stops working for you, find a replacement; don't stop trying new things.

>> No.10368816

First anon, I wasn't overweight to begin with but I should have included that getting very thin and looking better in my dresses is feeding my desire to lose more. On the other hand I feel lightheaded and weak with some food aversion so that's what lead me to believe I'm getting an ED.

>> No.10368835

consider recomposition instead of weight loss. muscle takes up less volume than fat. you can nourish your body and look slim at the same time. i don't mean to strive for the look of bodybuilders and crossfitters, i mean more like ice skaters and gymnasts. obviously the olympic level ones may be too muscular for your aesthetic, but imagine a more amateur one. take care of your mental health so that you have a desire to get your body the vitamins, proteins, healthy fats, and fiber that it needs. if your mental health isn't on point, then you won't care enough about the lightheadedness to do something about it. if you are not showing as much care for your own self as you would for a friend, then you are not in a good place mentally.

And another thing I just thought of is to seek out positivity. Look up the benefits of different nutrients and then find foods rich in them. Foods that are good for your hair, skin, nails, immunity, joints, etc. That way you can appreciate food more instead of being averse to it. Same with feeling more beautiful - try to look for features other than skininess that you find attractive in the models and influencers you see: their smile, grace, posture, way of speaking, attention to detail in styling, intellect, passion, lighting, and so on. Hopefully this helps break up your fixation on weight.

Why do I have the feeling that ott sweet is having a comeback?
I thought it was dead and classic and a more simple kind of sweet (like the girls in China wear it) took over but now I see so many ott coords on cof and instagram.
I don't hate that it's back but I can't find a reason as to why it's back now.

>> No.10368990

Why do people have to sexualize everything? Just let me wear my frills in peace and accept that it’s not a fucking fetish, like I’ve said a billion times. But no, some random coomer totally knows way more about a fashion than someone who actually fucking wears it.

>> No.10368991

It never really went away, but I think a lot of it has to do with social media. OTT sweet is very eye catching, but it's also very photo friendly unlike gothic. After a while, sweet is going to oversaturate and people will move back to classic for a bit, rinse, repeat.

A lot of lolitas are also really stuck in time though. People posting casual coords are accused of being too normie, and people who try to experiment are shouted down. Until the community starts to accept the style changing, we're just going to keep repeating trends of the past. And then the people who want to experiment will just leave the style and go elsewhere.

True, most people are mentally ill in general. But I'm willing to bet that if you were somehow able to do a study, lolitas would have a significantly higher rate of it than the general population.

Yeah the world is still kind of a fucked up place and a lot of people either through unresolved trauma they may not even be aware of or genetic conditions and many other factors can struggle with mental illness; being stuck inside or forced to go to work if you're 'essential' right now and exposed to illness daily are both situations with enough stress to cause people's existing mental health problems or troubling thoughts and feelings to become more intensified and at the forefront of their minds. This isn't exclusive to lolitas though.

Ayrt, thank you. That's the the point I was attempting to get at.

And this is why there was no point in naming names of who seemed to be a having a rough go. People are melting down with just the general statement. It’s not about shaming those people and it is sad to see them reel, thus the feel.
I hope that those lolitas can step away from the overt instagramming and all the other stuff and realize that they don’t need to constantly update everyone with every weird detail of their life (sometimes in intensely long video updates). We all cope in different ways, but some people seem to be doing poorly. Moderation is healthy in these cases and they may need to step back from the internet and take a breath. It just feels bad.

Right I need some honesty. At 5,7” and 160lbs am I too big for Lolita? I ripped a corset loop on a btssb dress last week and since I’ve not been able to feel the same. It was easy & unnoticable to repair but I feel like I must look like a fucking elephant now and wonder if that’s how all the girls in my comm see me. I know I’m not obese-chan or anything but I just want to look pretty and cute in brand dresses, is that even possible for me?

>> No.10370568

It's very difficult to say without knowing how you look. I think that lots of overweight girls are able to look just fine in lolita (and to be fair you might not even look overweight because your BMI is only just at the borderline), but the most important thing is how you think you look. Maybe try getting dressed up like you would for a meetup, stand in front of a mirror and see whether you can honestly say you think you look good. If not, maybe you should try losing some weight. Now's a good time to do it anyway.

>> No.10370569

Honestly, in general most Japanese stuff isn’t made for your body size, but that doesn’t mean you can’t find individual pieces within a brand that work with your size. Paying mind to measurements and giving yourself a few cm could help a bunch. Also, understanding what shapes work with your particular shape (if you’re busty or have large shoulders or etc.) can help you look proportionate in the clothing. Cheers to you being self aware though.

Assuming you don't have a bust over 100 cm, a lot of fully back shirred items will fit you comfortably and depending on your body shape should look okay. I was at your weight not too long ago and although my clothing was a little snug, I didn't bust at the seams (my bust was at 96 cm).

As another anon said a lot of back shirred brand should fit. Your bust and waist measurements are probably a bit more important and brand blouses or skirts fitting will depend on this.

Powdered milk and non-dairy creamer aren't the same thing. Powdered milk is just dehydrated milk, and it contains lactose. It's shelf-stable, but it's still a dairy product. Non-dairy cream is made out of onions and vegetable oil. It doesn't taste like milk and isn't meant to be consumed on its own or with a small amount of stuff added. It's meant to mimic the texture of cream to be added to coffee, but it does not taste like cream.

If your bubble tea places are using coffee whitener as the main part of their drinks, I'm sorry. That sounds gross.

exactly, anon is probably just confused about engrishy wording. a popular chain near me uses what they call "milk powder" but when you read the ingredients, it's just creamer. i used to work at a local korean style milk tea place and we used coffee mate pump creamer too. most asians are lactose intolerant so of course they won't be using real milk. like someone else said, fresh milk, or milk foam/cheese teas are real milk/milk products but average "milk tea" is just flavored like milk.

It tastes exactly the same as regular ice cream, the only appeal to it is 1) watching the process/how pretty it turns out 2) some places let you choose your own ingredients so you can make custom flavors you can't buy normally/can't have because of allergies. If you're a health nut, seeing fresh fruit used is probably appealing too, I guess.

I’ve recently started to feel a bit blue about the fact that I’m kind of a lonelita - I say kind of because I do have one friend who is dear to me but we’re both a bit busy and can’t make time to meet up, especially with the whole pandemic thing going on. It also bothers me that I haven’t felt like this previously and I’m not sure why I do now. Maybe it’s from seeing everyone doing virtual meets and such? I know I wouldn’t have a lot to talk about with people from my local comm though, and everyone’s most likely comfy enough with their own cliques. Doesn’t help that I’m not that fond of going to meets and I’m kinda bad at social situations. The few times I’ve attended a meet have been just me not really engaging with anyone and just sitting there in silence, so maybe I’m just doomed to sit at home and drink my tea by myself.

A while ago I left sweet lolita for goth, swore up and down that I'd never wear it again. I ditched it originally because I was going through a lot of external life events and self image issues. I was tired of feeling like I looked like an ~age player~. Now the quarantine hits and the urge to wear kawiwi AP sugar vomit is starting to return.

I’m in a couple cosplay groups on Facebook and I am just now starting to pay attention to the content.
Most of these cosplays are lukewarm as fuck; photoshopped, closet cosplay, and low effort costumes where half the items don’t match the damn character. I mean, the wig is wrong, it’s the wrong type of socks, shoes, school uniform, and ... just...fuck. To top it all off, most of the posts are people being half naked while doing a shit cosplay or doing shitty Tiktok videos.

>> No.10372601

First really low, then really high. My mother is an RT, and I’m constantly worried about her. The hospital she works at only lets them wear one surgical mask a day (they’re out of N95s), they’re out of gowns, out of gloves, and 4 RTs on their team of 30 got COVID already. She was laid off her other job, and her coworker there died from it. She’s over 50 and has health issues. We live together so I’m at risk and we can’t visit my family, which bums both of us out. I was furloughed last week and have dreamt about work every night since.

Onto the high... I have had so much time to reflect in just this short time. On addressing my social anxiety, on my life goals, on my relationships with others, on my principles. It’s like finally taking full breaths of air when I didn’t know I was only breathing half capacity for a year. I’m studying for the LSAT. My friend and I are excited to prep for a con we are tabling at in November. I’m looking into the therapy I’ve finally accepted that I need to develop the social skills to get where I want. I’m wearing lolita more often, even if I can’t go out- in fact, it’s easier because I’m only dressing to make myself happy.

I hope this crisis ends soon. At the same time, I’m glad for the uninterrupted time I’ve had to reflect.

I'm personally happy with my situation. I'm very anti-social and hate going outside, so now I can just chill at home, bake, work on my cosplays and just laze around. My university has taken a more lenient approach on grades, so classes have only gotten easier.
I do feel bad for the essential workers tho. I used to work part-time as a cashier but quit around Christmas to focus on my thesis, and goddamn I couldn't have quit at a better time. Glad I accidentally dodged that bullet. I'm in the risk-group too because of a compromised immunity system.

The only con I've personally come across is that all the cosplay materials I've ordered take forever to arrive now. There's probably gonna be some long-term consequences to the economy but fuck it, I'm just gonna be a hikikomori in peace while i can.

I'm really worried about the parcels I sent out in March. Makes me nervous that mail is taking really long now. I sold a bunch of stuff and 2 of the parcels appear to be stuck in limbo. The parcel to China arrived at Chinese customs but it's been sitting there since the 8th. Just deliver it already! And the item to Canada was sent as insured letter post (not parcel) just isn't being updated, probably shipped by boat or something. I really hope they get their items soon and nothing gets lost. Despite insuring everything, items getting lost in the mail is like my worst nightmare. Maybe I should pm them to apologise that it's taking so much longer than it's supposed to.

I don't feel pretty in lolita any more, I'm aging badly and nothing has brought me lasting joy for several years. I have a few nasty health conditions and I've been depressed for more than half my life. I've separated myself from my lolita community and my friends over the last few months, and I have a notarised will ready with apology letters for all of them and what parts of my closet and valuables go to whom. This quarantine/lockdown has been a great excuse for avoiding people and my work, but it'll be over soon. I'd like to die before it's over.

The only thing holding me back is that my partner, who I've discussed all my plans with very seriously, still says that it'll fuck him up if I die. He's a very good person, and I can't stand the thought of making him sad.

So I'm still here, and probably won't do it. I wish I could shake my attachment to him. Care for his wellbeing and a vague desire to see the end of my favourite manga are the only things keeping me here.

Pic unrelated, I just like that dress.

>> No.10372686

Yeah it’s been all positives for me! I’m disappointed with a few cancelled events but I finally feel caught up on all my personal stuff and little projects around the house. I finally feel mentally at peace! All the extra time has given me time to cook and I’ve lost weight. The long walks have helped, too. I’m still working from home so I’m getting paid but saving a ton of money by not going out. A bit scared for the health of certain family members, but I myself am better than ever. Can’t admit it outside this Nepalese basket weaving site, though. I gotta act all scared and sad for my out of work friends. I am sad for them and I’ll help them if I can, but this had made me realize maybe I don’t need as wide of friend circle or as active of a social life as I thought I did. Basically, I’m surprised at the number of people I don’t miss and am just kind of sick of hearing whine. I made hard choices in my life to get a good job and the last recession taught me to get a job in a stable field that is not dependent on economic conditions and whether Joe Public has extra money to blow on luxuries. Most of the people I know that are faring badly are doing so because they made shitty choices in life and chose fun times right now over job stability, saving money, and long term prospects.

This quarantine has made me realise I don't actually have friends. Of the people I normally hang out with, not one of them has initiated conversation with me online and when I've tried to send them a message I get some one word responses and then one of my messages simply goes ignored.

I'm not even particularly bothered or offended by it, but it's made me realise I have little in common with my fellow lolitas. I do get a bit lonely when I see others having frequent video calls or doing long distance twinning. I wish I had a female friend who I actually clicked with and had things in common with, but it seems like it's impossible to make new friends now I'm out of school.
