I always used to look younger than my actual age and took great care of myself but in the past 2 years I went though some pretty rough times where I neglected my health to the point where my depression made me stop eating, sleeping and my hair began to fall off. I'm now fully recovered but it required great efforts and it visually aged me like 5 years or more in the span of just a few months. I now have deep eye wrinkles at the age of 30 which no amount of make-up can cover up and I look just terrible and worn-out no matter how well I style myself. I don't want to be a lone-lita forever and a part of me wants to return to social media because I miss interacting with people but I'm horrified of the reactions. Or would it be better to stay away? I'm feeling lost

Getting out and seeing more of my own country means interacting with more of my own countrymen. My country has mountains, it has ski fields (shit ones), it has beaches (albiet I have a fear of the ocean), it has forests but these are all ruined by the fact that I have to share it with people who think it's okay to approach strangers trying to enjoy themselves and 'ave a good ol' yarn, aye'.

I just don't meld well with the friendly culture where you have to treat strangers like you've known them all your life and it's perfectly okay for people to approach you when you haven't invited that.

But natural beauty is only one small section to influence my decision.

Close but think started by a bunch of criminals. Australia.

I had my car broken into a few weeks ago. And I don't live in what's considered a bad area at all, where the median house price is $800K-$1M AUD.

I feel like the cosplay community does not deserve conventions, or any fun. The quarantine has proved no one in the community - and the fans orbiting the cosplay fandom - is sane enough. Politics everywhere. People posting their spicy opinions on their personal social media, when they KNOW people from the community is watching their posts.

People should just shut the fuck up and only post about cosplaying. The source of all drama comes from when they give personal opinions when what they should be doing is merely cosplay and nothing else.

I'm silent most of the time. I don't make posts unrelated to my cosplay activities or my interests. Sometimes I make comments but these are harder to actually see.

People love me, anon. They probably think I've got autism (and I do look like and have mannerisms of autism) so I get a free pass. All I know is that when the conventions come back i'm just gonna do my own thing and not associate myself with any other cosplayer - I don't want to get caught in the next political debate created by COSPLAYERS who want a political career of some sort or want to boost their 'social points'.

>> No.10431841

There are people who are into cosplay for the drama. I guess it’s ironic for me to say that while posting on cgl but this is at least is a somewhat neutral ground.

I used to use coscom forums back in the day and for as dumb as that place was, the one thing I miss about forums is that they are a central place that’s not tied specifically to one person (unlike social media) so things can be discussed on a lower level as casual individuals, instead of shouting twitter manifestos back and forth in public and legions of followers liking and sharing or adding on to attempt to soak up residual clout. Cosplayers aren’t necessarily experts on politics or activism, they’re people who looked good in photos and people followed them for whatever reason, but suddenly they’re not just a rando who watches cartoons that has an opinion, they’re a rando with minions.

Sometimes I just want to talk about sewing or what colors look good together or something without needing to post 23 current events posts or links to fundraisers to show I’m not being silent. If all my friends are already woke and I go stomping through the kitchen, I’m making noise for no real reason.

Cgl is pretty annoying because of all the dumb baiting clogging up the threads but at least I can bring up a topic without people screenshotting all the posts I’ve made that don’t reference a political issue so they can find a way to be the one who canceled Obscure Stinky Man Cosplay (not my actual cosplay handle).

That’s probably not very cohesive or organized, I’m sorry. Tl;dr- I know life sucks right now and wish it didn’t but it’s getting to where cosplay also sucks unless you never interact with anyone else.

Had to throw out (literally into the garbage) brand today. Our goodwill is still closed and I'm just running out of space. I tried to sell this stuff for like $20 (shipping included) on face book and lace market several times over the years but no one ever bought it. I orginally priced this stuff higher, like $30 for a blouse and $40 for a skirt w/ tags but it never moved. I asked around if anyone wanted it in my comm and no one wanted it. So yesterday in a cleaning frenzy I just said screw it and tossed it to make room for new stuff.

Now I feel guilty for tossing it. When I first got started I would have killed for cheep brand old school brand, but i DID offer it up it's just no one wanted it... For years.

So next time someone complains about how no one shoulder alter their brando or that it always needs to be cycled back into the community via secondhand sales or straight up gifting... Just be aware that sometimes no one wants it but I don't want to store it.

A cream velvet onepiece from AP, an innocent world brown velvet skirt with tags and several AP blouses. these were all things I had bought from japan and they didn't fit so I stuffed them into the back of the closet. The issue is currently my Lolita wardrobe and Normie wardrobe have become the same closet. The cloths rod was starting to bow and I had been keeping this stuff for years.

In the US these pieces were quoted to me to cost 15-ish dollars to ship and 10-ish for the light stuff (blouses) so when I tried to sell things for 20 or 40 dollars I was mostly just covering the shipping quote with a little profit.

In the end another factor was I realized that right now my normie clothes make me money (what I wear while working) and if I threw away the Lolita stuff I wasn't using anyway then I could have room to buy stuff I'd actually use.

Whenever I sell I under price on purpose just to reduce the likelyhood of any returns or refunds. THis is something I've experienced as a buyer over the years; the more something costs the more critical I am about if it's the best bang for my buck and I consider returning it if it's not the best. When things are priced lower I tend to be more forgiving and reasonable if it's not absolutely perfect. So when pricing stuff to sell on I try to factor that in. But now I worry that maybe it was too low so maybe people assumed there was something wrong... I mean, would you worry if a brand OP was being sold for 40 dollars?

>>10431884 >>10431899
It's been two days and I live in a complex so there's no safe way to climb into the compactor and find my bag of garbage again, sorry.

The blouses were all creams / whites. My boobs are small but my ribcage is wide so I have to gamble on ordering and then seeing if it fits. What was sort of a turning point is I went to a brand tea party last year and I realized I owned more never-worn unusable blouses then usable (exactly one blouse). So whenever I opened my closet and looked at it it looked like I had options but I really didn't.

This has been over the course of a few years (whoa, maybe 6 or 7 years actually). I'd list something, wait for it to expire or get buried in the feeds and then re-list like 4, 6 months later. I'll admit I got a few low-ball offers wherein they wanted stuff for 15 or 10 dollars and at that point i'd explain how that wouldn't cover the shipping anymore and at that point they'd say they couldn't go higher.

part of the reason I wanted to share this is that a lot of people have odd opinions about what people should or shouldn't do with their brand and I kinda wanted to show how I sort of believed that, sort of followed it and then ended up having no other options but continue to hoard or dump.

I used to be part of a cosplay/dance group (we did dance covers and performed at cons- judge all you want, it was good exercise and the outfits were cute) but left because of their drama. I enjoyed hanging out with most of the members, but a few of them were absolutely insufferable and I hate that they ruined the fun. One of them, who called herself the “leader” even though she barely did anything, is one of the most self-centered, narcissistic people I’ve ever met. The other members did whatever she wanted because when she didn’t get her way she’d throw an absolute bitch fit. I tolerated her because I didn’t have to deal with her much (we rarely performed together), but she just kept causing issues and none of the others had the guts to kick her out. Now the group has all but died, due to members leaving and Covid, but I’m starting to miss it.

I really loved performing, but I feel like it attracts the worst kind of people. All the other groups in my area are too young and/or have their own drama I want no part of. I could do solo performances but I feel like those aren’t as fun to watch, and also I don’t really have the motivation to go chasing down gigs by myself. It’s frustrating. I just want to dance and be cute.

when seeing the 00's cosplay thread I noticed something that made me reflect on the pictures in the cosplay community. There was no selfies, even in forum post recent as 2009. I feel like taking more fullbody and waist lenght pictures, aswell as picture with your friends and post them on social media would be more healthy then the majority of face catalog account you see most of the time. It bring the attention on makeup but leave other cosplay abilities to the side, even wig styling since thay are only saw under a few angles.
I find that it take away from the joy of learning what you can do to make something look good as a whole.
Idk why the old cosplay photos gave me such feel, kind of like old street snap or lolita pictures where they would photoshop themself in castles and stuff. The imperfect reach for greater and greater quality fueled by the love of something .

You can probably reverse some of the changes. I went through a period of intense bad health decisions, but I bounced back and now look like my younger self again. I really focused on moisturizing my skin and using anti aging products, eating healthy and drinking lots of water, and got some facial filler.

I've been thinking about getting some fillers but for under the eyes. I've had wrinkles under my eyes since I was a kid. It's not due to age or tired, just genetics. Are fillers painful? Annoying? If you slap the area is there a risk of it bursting?

I am also interested. I've had these lines on my cheeks since I was a kid, sort of like under-eye bags but lower. I'm 31 and, i'm not sure if I'm imagining it, but they seem to be getting worse. I always hated them. Occasionally I'll see other people with them.

They hurt a bit as you're getting injected in the face in multiple locations. After I got cheek fillers, it hurt to smile for a couple of days. But no they don't burst or anything lol.

Intermittent fasting means an extended interval of time between meals. It can be 8-16 hours so you may eat twice a day, or it can be OMAD (One meal a day)

OMAD was a popular diet in the Roman times, many people in ancient Rome only had one meal per day and had well-muscled healthy physiques as seen on statues.

Nayrt, but the key to it is planning it so most of the fast is sleeping. I started with 16/8 and it went pretty well. I usually have my last meal at 17.00, then my first at 9, and it never made me feel dizzy. If it does, you can start with other, less strict intervals like 13/11. Drinking water with salt and calcium also helps, but it's not neccesary. Not sure if it helps with weight loss, as I haven't noticed any major difference, but my stomach feels better and I don't get heartburn anymore.

I used to do 2 day fasts every week. It actually helped my concentration. Never been so focused before. Surely it’s hard to get used to because we have been told to eat 3 times a day by the media, when in reality our body can do just fine on one.

Ex) humans were made made to survive in a fasted state and been that way for thousands of years. People didn’t stop hunting mammoths and tigers because they last ate 9 days ago.

Also I’m not fat and do it for health benefits. I also only eat once a day.

I explained it poorly
>The contractions also produce vibrations and the rumbling noise associated with hunger. Hunger contractions may continue for 10 to 20 minutes once initiated, and then repeat every one to two hours until the next meal is ingested. These are not the same as hunger pangs, which start 12 to 24 hours after the last meal and may continue for a few days before gradually subsiding. (It is possible such pangs are important in the hunger sensation that drives animals to eat.) Low blood sugar enhances this activity, which can also be induced using an intravenous infusion of the hormone motilin. After feeding, the MMCs subside.

I think that comes from a history of women being ignored when it comes to sexual pleasure.

A lot of guys (not all) think sex is just wham bam and a lot of women believe it as well because it's been taboo to talk about women's pleasure, else they would be seen as a slut and harlot.

How do I create clearer boundaries with a friend so they stop talking to me about their obsession? I have an obsessive personality myself, but I keep it to myself because it’s my secret shame. My wardrobe is literally exploding with mains and I’m contemplating dumping more of my normal clothes to make room, but I don’t talk to my friend about it because I know it’s of no interest to her. However, she’s been non stop obsessed about some girl she dated for a few months and got dumped by. I tended to her wounds for a few months but I’m fucking over talking about it. I’m over looking at screenshots. And I told her this in a “you gotta move on girl, you’re better than that” kind of way. I have my own shit to deal with right now, like what kind of rack do I need to buy that can support the weight of all these damn dresses lol fuck. Wish I could just tell her to shut up but I don’t want her to feel bad.

>> No.10432556

the solution is to trick her into obsessing over the dresses with you

>> No.10432558

You can't say anything really that will let her know to stop talking about it with you because its what she's obsessed with. You would've had to avoid making friends with her in the first place or leave right away early on. Now its too late basically.

But you can stall her attempts and subtly influence her to talk about it less by always being busy when she comes to you (not if she's desperate or begging, but if its just her usual spiel and you don't want to do with it, try letting her know that you're occupied with something else)

Eventually she'll find someone else to talk about it with and just ask you less if you do it right.

>> No.10432563

I wish I could, but she’s fashionably challenged. So much so that I have styled her on a few occasions because she asked for help. Then it turned into a thing where she thought it was fun for me to always do her hair and makeup and pick out her clothes. It’s not fun. It’s a chore.

Yeah we’ve been friends for more than a decade so the option of leaving is faaar too late. When she’s not like this, she’s a great friend. But she won’t shut the fuck up about this girl and won’t get the not so subtle hint that I’m checked out of the conversation. I might just ignore her for a while when she brings it up because I keep telling her “I’m not gonna do with with you anymore” and get met with an “LMAO I should stop but I can’t”

You have to approach it with some level of honesty but with kindness. She doesn't need a sugar coated ass pat, but a firm boundary that comes from a place of love. It sounds like you want to stay in this person's life and feel like your own needs aren't being met so I think it's worth a conversation even if may be unsavory to have. So something like: Hey, I know that you've been really torn up about this breakup but I feel like you are starting to obsess over this person and it is making me concerned for your well-being. I am here for you to help you move on and heal, but I feel like this obsession is impeding your ability to do that and as your friend I want to help you get past this. Also, I feel like we can get so lost in talking about this girl that I haven't really had a chance to share with you what's going on in my life. I hope you understand that I want what's best for you and what's best for my feelings too.

Obviously you don't need to copy paste, but I hope that kind of leads you to a good train of thought? Overall, just focus on your friendship, your feelings, her feelings (and why she might be obsessing over this girl even though it wasn't that long of a relationship), and stray away from accusatory statements or blame-pointing statements. If this girl is really your friend then she should be willing to hear you out.

>> No.10432693

Depending on the context it makes sense to try this, but if this is someone anon has known for a long time and considers a close friend this is terrible passive aggressive nonsense that is way too commonly followed. When your friend finds out you're not actually busy you're just pushing her away she'll likely be more upset than anything. I've had people do that to me when I was in a horrible place, and it made me feel like shit

Depending on the person brutal honesty might be the wrong path to go down, but if anon is close enough to her friend I can't think of anything else than what has worked for me:

I have obsessive tendencies myself, and my longest time friend has some major obsessive tendencies as well. You can start with subtle hints that this rumination isn't helping, you can even straight up say rumination isn't helping her, but when it comes to the point where it's a hindrance on both your lives in my own experience I just say "I understand talking about things can help work through them, but we're at the point where having this conversation isn't helping it improve, and because talking to me won't help you stop thinking about it from now on we just can't have this conversation"

You can be to the point, but still reaffirm that you care

This is pretty much the only thing I get off on. It makes it hard for me to do hookups because I can't be that interested in making a girl feel good if I don't like her to begin with and really hard to be assertive because I stop being into things if I feel like she's only doing them for me.

This group is sort of both. I'm probably freaking out over nothing but it's hard not to worry about it. The other person involved also pretty much ghosted me afterwards and I can't stop feeling like they were just manipulating me into making a fool of myself.

>> No.10432742

Sounds exactly like the group I was in in college. Girls were constantly getting bitched about/near-shunned for dumb things they did while drunk (when usually there was some fucking weirdo who didn't even drink egging them on the whole time). It never happened to me but I saw it happen to several girls. All I can tell you is that the people who matter will understand that everyone does embarrassing things when they're drunk sometimes, and the people who make a big deal out of it are probably losers. All of the girls I know who had that happen to them are now living happy lives with successful careers, while most of the men who gave them a hard time barely finished their degrees and are living that permanent manchild life. I hope you feel better anon.

>> No.10432752

I suspect that it's probably not a huge deal but I'm honestly just really insecure about stuff like this. The factor that makes it a bit harder is that I'm a dude and the person who egged me on is a girl and at least in this group I feel like I'm likely to get the short end of the stick in terms of perception. It's also just nagging at me that I don't know how I'd explain this to anybody because I'm honestly not bothered by what actually happened, just by other people's perception of it, and because of that I don't want to turn it into a thing where it looks like the girl involved took advantage without consent or anything, which knowing the "leaders" of this group is something that might happen.

>> No.10432759

Ahh, it's a little different from my group then. The guys could pretty much do anything up to and including getting their dicks out in public without fear of judgment. But I understand, that does make the situation a little trickier. I was going to suggest that you talk with the girl in question to get her thoughts on it, but since you said she ghosted you I guess that's not possible. I suppose she might feel embarrassed herself. Is there anyone else in the group you're close enough to that you could bring it up casually to get a general sense for how people feel about it? If not, I guess the only thing you can do is wait and see. But if your gut feeling is that it won't be a big deal, go with that unless you're given a reason to assume otherwise. There's no point in torturing yourself. I'm sorry, I know that's not very concrete advice.

This is quite bad. Demissexuals do not feel sexual attraction unless under specific circumstances. It's not about wanting or not to have sex, but feeling the attraction per se.

So, the question about wanting to have sex with a man/woman being used to classify someone as assexual or no is completely invalid since it doesn't consider the specificities of the person answering it. Also, the presence of libido has nothing to do with being ace or no, being het / gay or no.

Why not keep two blouses, two main pieces and enough stuff to make at least two complete coords? Either pick oppisite colors on purpose (a pink dress and a blue dress) with idententical blouses or pick two main pieces that share one main color and then make sure your tops are one basic color (cream or white) and one pastel color (for when you're feeling "creative") that's also present in the print of both dresses.

Then, use the money you've got from selling off to buy your wardrobe of vintage, but know you didn't "give up" Lolita; it's still there for you if you want to jump back in. Also, when / if you do a vintage look in pastel, see if you can use some of your Lolita accessories to wear with it (rings, necklaces, brooches or bows) as sort of a call back or unique twist.

I've had a similar conversation about this with my friends about trans people. I don't meant to invalidate someone's feelings about that, but I feel like there would be a lot of people who wouldn't label themselves trans if we as a society dropped strict gender norms and allowed for more freedom of gender expression. For example, would some men who are ridiculed for being feminine still consider themselves trans if they were able to comfortably flex their femininity while being allowed to retain their male gender identification? I'm not well versed on transgender issues, so I won't pretend I know anything but that's just what's been on my mind in relation to your type of comment. I feel the same about my sexual identity too. Do I identify as heterosexual because I've been brought up in a society and family that rigidly defines you as straight or gay with little to no inbetween or do I just feel like our current definition of straight is so rigid that my deviations from that definition make me think that I don't fit in that label?

I'm sure you're not as stupid as you're making yourself sound, but bi do feel sexual attraction whereas demisexuals must meet their personal circumstances for that to happen or that may never actually happen.

Actually I remember that there was quite a lot of selfie or myspace angle pics on blogs and such ( around the skyblog era) , I even used a camera in front of a mirror to do selfie in the early 2010's. It's true that it wasn't common in the cosplay community, I guess that like you said there is no deeper meaning but it have a very specific charm to it.

God bless painkillers. I cleaned my apartment and did stain removal on a dress thanks to it. Now evening is setting in, and I feel like I deserve to rest on this returning headache.

I want to KonMari my place but I feel incredibly guilty getting rid of expensive lolita dresses that I've only worn once, or never worn at all. Kondo recommends just throwing them out. I feel exhausted at the thought of having to sell them all (especially since I have a feeling they'll be taking up space for months while I wait for them to sell), but too guilty to just throw them out. Unsure which path to go down. Anyone have advice?

Donate them or sell them, don’t throw good clothes out.

Is it bad that I want to be kind of e-famous? Is there a way to do it without involving myself in polemics and drama? I just want some external validation of my ability on coording, doing nice makeup and sewing.

I moved from Australia to the east coast of the US and was surprised at how much better the culture is for introverts. Australian meathead and binge drinking culture is non-existent, it was really refreshing. I sadly moved back because of the pandemic, but know that it's not just you.

They can be very racist and will always be seen as an outsider.


This. So increabley true. Tho being a very polite society they won't say it to your face but always behind your back. Be prepared to carry you 'papers please' 24/7/365 as they can, have, and will stop you anytime/anywhere to check on you. If you get into any trouble they always take the Japanese side majority of the time because like no Japanese person has never done anything bad before but you're the easy gaijin to fuck over.

Case in point. A friend of mine was in Japan with a friend of his before and while he and his friend were drinking some alcohal bevies a few Japanese guys seemed to be really boozed up on the liquid courage tried hitting on my friends friend. She politely turned them down but booze being what it is and seemed like the guy felt his pride taken kept hitting on her saying something liek 'lets talk english' meaning I guess to practice english but then things got hands on when the guy grabbed the girls arms and my friend had enough and slapped the guys arm away which the japanese guy then now grabbed his arm as they were walking away. Things moved quickly and they went fistacuffs. Cops came, As no one had video or can pull video from a store of what happened as they were in a park the cops sided witht he japanese guys saying something about many foreigners coming to japan and being drunk and harassing thier citizens. IIRC they were pressured by the cops to admitt to public drunkardness, harassing and endangering thethier citizens. They had a few days left in thier trip in Japan but ended up being detained before being kicked out. That was when I learned of the cops can ask for papers anytime and they learned about the cops can detain IIRC 72hrs plus an extention of IIRC 10 days and IIRC another 10 days on that. Esentually if anyone in Japan wanted to stir the shit on you and you can't prove beyond a doubt you didnt stir the shit or
