What's the best place(s) to look for more "in depth" information on lolita fashion? Brand history, academic papers, accurate timelines, first-hand accounts, etc.

Interested in both English and Japanese language sources.

Also interested in archived Japanese forums discussing lolita circa 2000s or early 2010s. If those are, in fact, something you can find and look through nowadays.

Giving $100 to a scalper for a secondhand book does absolutely nothing to benefit the authors. It would only be questionable to upload a scan if the book was still for sale. Currently, uploading a scan only benefits the authors because it’ll enable a wider audience to read an out of print book. People who otherwise wouldn’t have sought out their works could become fans -> sales on their other items.

If you actually cared about “support” you’d link the handles of the other authors and share their works that are currently for sale, but instead you’re virtue signaling.

You could try using spray starch. It helps to stiffen fabrics. You can find it in the laundry aisle. Be careful with it. Since it's starch, it has the potential to attract bugs. So I'd only use it when I want to wear the piece and then wash it out afterwards.

As somoene who has gotten rarer dresses that have had RANK BO in them, it's fairly easy to get out providing you're not dealing with something that runs. (Normally this is cotton prints that have red and sometimes darker colors like black or brown.)

Chiffon is polyester and there's less concern. But always do a swatch test somewhere that isn't noticable.

Soak the dress in a mix of water, peroxide and baking soda. You can also spot treat specific areas with a more concentrated mix of baking soda / peroxide and let it sit before soaking. Then you can wash out with some gentle detergent.

This works really well for removing sweat stains as well, btw.

If there's not a ton of super-delicate items on the dress that aren't removeable, you can put it into a laundry bag after that and let it go through a spin cycle. Then hang to dry it. You'll probably need to steam it a little afterwards.

If you're above 160cm then AP and btssb can end a little too high above the knee depending on the dress (source: wonder tea party, personal experience). I'm 164cm I've had more luck with btssb sometimes being a bit longer though. If you have a shorter dress our height is not so tall that you would absolutely need an underskirt, but you can deal with shorter dresses by wearing bloomers and/or longer socks so you're not showing a disproportionate amount of bare leg.

>> No.10845352

I'm probably an outlier being 180 CM, but I don't really have any problem wearing lolita (though I am used to things being a little short on me so maybe i'm just blind to it kek). I usually buy dresses that are in the 85-90 CM length range anyway (and skirts in the 50-55 CM range) and that's comfortable for me, but I am planning on getting a cute underskirt just as a backup plan. If your dresses are too short on you for your taste, nothing is wrong with an underskirt!

>> No.10845356

I'm 172, and I don't really have any trouble with dresses being too short. I wear a lot of gothic and old school, so I don't have a problem with showing some leggy.

I have one pair of AP ones as well that I was clueless what to do with as well. I use them to pull back the section of hair behind my ears. I looked up a video of how to use hair combs first. You put them in almost opposite of how you think you would to get them to stay. I can try to find the video again if you'd like. It wasn't a lolita specific video, just ones about regular hair combs, but I found it helpful for getting them to stay in my hair. I leave some hair framing my face and then have the bows pull a small section back up and away from my ears. I don't have any pictures. I hope this helps.

>> No.10845809

how would your ed show? Your ed is not your weight. If someone is underweight that could be for other reasons. Sure people could assume it's because of AN instead of some other health issue.
If you don't show any ed behavior (body checking, purging, etc) or talk about your ed or do any weird typical red flag AN stuff like go on rants about how fucked up it is that people consider granola to be health food or that anyone above bmi 18 is grossly overweight, etc, you should be fine.

I think there could be a place for content that talks about EDs and j-fashion/lolita in the same context, but obviously not in a pro-ED way. There was a lolita who talked about becoming healthier after going to therapy for emotional eating, although I don't remember her name. That was pretty well received but be careful about posting personal stuff online, even if you choose to talk about it in a recovery focused way it can follow you. Once you put it online it's no longer in your hands.

Would it be legal to recreate brand name clothes in doll sizes and sell them, as long as the brand's name and logo aren't used anywhere on the item or in the sale listing?

>> No.10846855

I've made some before, but just for myself and I based my design on a 2002 release that the brand can't monetize anyway. I feel like your case is more of a gray area, since brands do release collabs with doll companies, and if it's a frequently rereleased/newer piece, the likelihood of you stepping on their toes is much higher. You'd probably need to consult an actual lawyer if you want to start a business selling doll-sized replicas.

I sold a dress recently, about a week ago, and the buyer has only told me today(the day it was delivered) that the address was incorrect, and is being uncooperative while I'm trying to help them get the dress.

Did they not message you details after buying (paypal for invoice, name and address)?

Rare =/= only a few ever made. OOP's dress is on a whole different level of rarity and should offer something outrageous if she really wants the dress.

Hope that helps. For a dress with only 5 in existence, I’d say that’s proportional. That aside, the Kira Kira OP set sold for 7k a year or two ago.

I've experienced Chinese lolitas cold-messaging me and asking to by my dresses for high prices.

I disagree with all the 'don't ask' peeps completely. Of course it's rude and tacky to ask, but it's pretty common in most hobbies for collectors to ask anyway. If you never ask, you'll likely never get the item you want. Sometimes you have to take the chance and be assertive about what you want even if the answer will almost certainly be no.

For you having the dress is more important RIGHT NOW but that could change at any point in the future. For plenty of other people they'd rather have 10k in their pocket than an old dress in their closet, even if it was their ultimate dream dress.

Do you remove the spare buttons from the tags inside your pieces or do you keep them on there? I've removed a few for fear of losing them while I'm actually wearing the dress, but now I feel like I've made a mistake and will misplace them anyway

>> No.10850892

This would be the perfect storage case for that miniature Koitsukihime BJD

>> No.10850893

It makes sense to remove them from the tag since they're not secured very well and they can feel annoying.
I would remove the button, put it in a small zip lock bag and put a little piece of paper in it that has the name of the dress and the brand on it. Little baggy goes into a box where other buttons reside. Bonus points if it's the butter cookie container.

>> No.10850899

If your worried about losing them maybe you could sew them more securely to the inside of the skirt lining, where they're out of the way but still attached to the dress?

Very much not allowed, since dropshipping would mean the item isn't in their possession. If you see it, feel free to report it. Secondhand sales have gotten so junky the past few years. Makes me sad.

What is the best way to clean head bows with metal wires on the band? A dumb ass seller told me they washed an AP head bow I just bought from them and naturally the metal rusted. I would like to clean it without causing further damage.

I also have other head wear from AP that are stained but not washed yet out of fear they will rust. Any advice would be helpful.

>> No.10851296

I'm not from Texas but have met them at cons, and most of them are perfectly normal. Even the ones I've read about being crazy online were still nice and polite to me when I met them. Every comm has a handful of retards, especially in an alt fashion like lolita which inevitably attracts genderspecials, weebs, and attention seekers. But people usually get to know the normal people in their comms and hang out with them privately anyway. I wouldn't be too worried about it until you judge them for yourself.

>> No.10851299

Ayrt. I brought them up because OP says she's near them. You're are exactly the type of terminally online person I'm referring to kek. Real life is nuanced and an entire comm does not consist of evil bitches.

>> No.10851318

Also, literally every comm has SJWs that will freak out and label you a transphobe or racist if you disagree with them. My local comm has already done that to people. You can't escape crazy bitches in any lolita comm, so the best you can do is to avoid befriending the lunatics and try hanging out with the normal ones

>> No.10851351

>the stuff i hear about the texan comm
Not to wk but your first problem is that you think there's only one comm in Texas. There are at least 5 different big ones and probably more micro-comms that don't do big events as well, and not everyone in the bigger ones even talks to everyone else because there's just too many people.
Just go meet people and make friends with the ones you get along with. If you don't get along with anyone then don't hang out with them. You don't need a big group of near strangers to enjoy the fashion or even lolita-adjacent activities.

>> No.10851352

This so much. The nonna freaking out about your posts is clearly either someone who is a lolita at heart keyboard warrior hellbent on obsessing over old milk and drama, or was personally slighted by someone in the minority of psychotic TX-litas and can't stop posting about it while the major victims have moved on.

metal doesn't rust spontaneously. why the fuck is this meme still around?

>> No.10851436

nayrt, it's probably still around because people are washing things with metal in it and they say it rusts.

>> No.10851466

I've washed many AP headbows of varying ages, and only one of them ever rust (probably because I was attempting to use diluted bleach, it was kind of dumb diy).
I somehow cleaned all of the rust off with Bar Keepers Friend (the powdered kind). I scrubbed it in with a wet toothbrush. It had just rusted though, so I'm not sure if it will remove old rust stains.
In general, I wash headbows by putting them in a bra lingerie bag on a delicates cycle with other small items. Afterwards, sometimes I use a hairdryer to dry the ends and middle of the headband to give it a headstart. Then I shape the bow so it will look nice when it air-dries.

Work on your reading comprehension. I said "CAN end a little too high above the knee" not "all dresses will be too short if you're 164cm tall".
I also said "DEPENDING on the dress" as some are longer than others. Also "btssb SOMETIMES being a bit longer". I'm fully aware that all brands release dresses of different lengths, that is evident from the way I phrased things.

that depends on your torso length.

same. I think you can go pretty far by being polite. If you say, "hey, no idea if you're even interested in selling x, but if you're ever considering it, I would be willing to pay x. Sorry to bother you, have a nice day!." If that offends you, you wanted to be offended.

My theory is that the other anons ITT are upset when they don't get a chance at rare items due to a sense of entitlement. They're mad that you would be circumventing them to get whatever it is.
