Crying over all of the new fashion show pics, I really need Spring to get here faster. Curious when these will officially start releasing.

>> No.7996069

as last thread is in autosage, I might post it in here as well

So many roses, AP why?
Left ones both look like Memorial Cake 2.0, the lavender version is classier while the pink seems sweeter.
The other pink print seems like it's next years horse print with that big rocking horse on it.
The only print that made my curious to see close is the right one, looks very much like a butterfly print.
But I'm also a bit underwhelmed, prints and cuts are same old story. I'd love to have more kitschy prints again but with the classic trend going I know this won't happen, but one can dream.

I sew pretty well (and am a touch too big for VM), so I tend to buy fancy prints and make plainer pieces. I also go for JSKs more than OPs, so they can be dressed up with elaborate blouses or toned down with simple boleros & cardigans.Maybe 1/3rd of my closet is too fancy to wear outside of a lolita tea party?

>>7996072

Pretty sure most of these OPs shown will also be given JSK cuts, which are generally super easy to tone down.

I don't go for fancy OPs because there are generally too many permanent details (sleeves being a big one) you can't change or remove. I just stick to dressing up my dressier jsks. OTT dresses are lovely to look at, but with the way I wear my lolita pieces not practical, or worth the price tag that comes with them.

I'm so excited for the cake and rose prints!

I draft my own patterns, which is an utterly useless answer, I know. The Otome no sewing books are pretty good, but you need to already be familiar with the basics of sewing and how patterns go together. I'm hesitant to recommend commercial patterns because I change them so much to make them work - for instance, I use Simplicity 4675 as a base sometimes, but I have to change the waist length, sleeves and neckline, so it's barely the same pattern by the time I'm done.

That said, a lot of VM stuff is about good quality materials and simple lines, so it's possible to make yourself nice versions with a little time and practice.

Actually Baby did re-release a number of prints last year -- trouble was, they did their "past hits" rather than based on customer popularity except for Sugar Bouquet and Midsummer's. The only one that did swimmingly well was Midsummer's and Sugar Bouquet, everything else flopped. So they might be cautious about doing re-releases now.

Sometimes the prices on the secondhand market are exorbitant because there's only a couple of girls who want them really badly, but not enough girls to actually fill out a full reservation. So Baby would end up not being able to sell all of their dresses, they might end up in the discounts section, and while we like to say we like a dress for its beauty, this is going to affect the covetousness of the piece, which in turn will have girls buying less from Baby because their beloved dress might be perceived as a "bargain dress" by others. This just basically hurts Baby more.

I do notice they're now going to great lengths to make sure everybody has a chance to buy a popular piece (price tag aside). For eg Midsummer's had at least two rounds of reservations, and when they actually put the items up, they restocked at least the headbow, and I'm pretty sure they restocked the dress as well. The Madonna Lily print actually had a second and third round of reservation (for ivory and mint, I think?), it went up with both these colours in stock as well (despite selling out in reservation), and later on Baby announced a restock as well. So I think their focus is now more on giving girls as many chances to buy a dress as they can by doing multiple rounds of reservations, rather than doing re-releases. It's a good idea, since extending production of a product is much easier than rolling out an entirely new line just because a handful of rich girls didn't buy the dress when it came out.

I think it's certain she's a model since she's wearing an unreleased dress. AP has a habit of blinging out their runway outfits with random items though, maybe they just got the flowers somewhere and used them. The actual jsk might not come with the extra pin on roses.

Yep. And most skirts are variations on a rectangle. Once you figure out how to draft ruffles and add extra for pintucks, making really nice classic skirts is mostly a matter of time & patience.

You can even get started for cheap, just hit up a thrift shop on half-price day. They usually have old sewing patterns and bedsheets you can use for practice sewing. Very few people are capable of making a perfect item on their first attempt, so don't waste your money on good fabric or have high expectations; make a bunch of stuff with thin cotton to master sewing and fit, once you have a sample that's tailored to your body, you can even cut that apart to use as a pattern for future dresses!

Depends on how serious it is. If it's like, just a girl or a couple of girls who don't like each other, that's one thing. We're only really connected by our clothes and not everyone will get along. If it comes to someone being threatening or intimidating though, mods are usually on the case as long as you let them know whats up (assuming you have proof that it happened and it didn't happen publicly). I think as long as no one is being harassed, it's just something you ignore and take the high road on.

Thoughts on special occasion dresses/OTT dresses? Are they worth it? Do you have one? Do you think they're a staple for any lolita wardrobe?

I wear lolita at least twice a week so most my coordinations are on the simple side and my dresses are well loved. I am eyeing a princess sleeved dress but I know I would only be able to wear it during special occasions (tea parties, brand events, conventions) so I don't know if it's worth shelling out the extra money for it.

>> No.7997125

How often do you go to brand events/cons/parties? If you go to them fairly regularly, then go for it. Keep in mind that you probably won't want to wear the same OTT dress for all of them though, so you'll end up wearing it less than you think you would.

I don't own one and I'd much rather buy two JSKs that I'll actually wear than one OTT dress I only get to wear once a year.

It depends on the use you get out of your lolita, I guess. I have a handful of princess dresses to dress my mannequin in; I enjoy looking at the dresses as much as I enjoy wearing them, so for me the handful of dresses are worth it to keep around for eye candy (and I can afford the price tag, so it's not like I'm skimping on other dresses to keep these).

If you want something fancy that you can wear to cons repeatedly, and which you can change up with each wear, I'd say fancy skirts and jumperskirts are the most versatile. The really plain dresses (even ones with all over or floral prints) with very little design features will be difficult to work into fancy coords as they look so plain. Instead, pick something with a border print and some decoration on the bodice, or something with a fair amount of ruffles and flounces, those are easier to work with.

For those fancy jsks and skirts, you can do a lot of different coords -- long- or short-sleeved blouse for the weather, or coord with flouncy princess-sleeved blouse or with lace gloves for fancy events. You can add underskirts and pin up parts of the skirt for an artsy look. You can add overskirts and overdresses to change things up. For a skirt, you can go with a blouse or a cutsew, or you can coord it with different-coloured or differently styled bustiers for many different jsk-type looks. So basically you'll get many more different looks out of a jsk or skirt than any kind of OP.

On the flip side, you might not want to wear the same print over and over again to several cons, no matter how creative, so if you feel like it's a hassle to keep coming up with different looks, you could always buy one OTT dress, wear it one time, sell it off, rinse and repeat for each con. It looks a bit shallow, yes, but let's face it, these are pretty clothes, and if you get the most joy out of wearing a different OTT dress to every con, who has the authority to tell you how to enjoy your own hobby?

I also have more friends there and going out with someone who looks more "normal" shields you a bit from any comments or harassment.

I was offered an $8 refund.

Give them photos anyway, they may officially say they don't accept x evidence but they are just human beings, they aren't judges and they will look at anything you give them.
Also DO NOT in any way imply that the item was handmade or custom made. F+F probably will but you need to make them seem like a major faceless company with a factory somewhere pumping out the same shit over and over. They are trying to make it sound like it's some custom made unique special thing for you, make it clear to pp that it isn't.

Noob trying to look for some solid colored classical-ish JSKs and OPs that would fit a 34" waist, 40" bust and 5' 9" height. I was hoping to get a few custom pieces from F+F but the reviews seem very polarized. I guess I should look at Meta?

What do you guys wear under sheer/thin blouses? I'm new and one of the blouses I recently bought was thin and you could see through. It's not noticeable under JSKs, but when I try it with a skirt it's obvious. I tried wearing a camisole under but I don't like how it looks since you can tell I'm wearing one.

Meta's items with full back shirring would fit you well. You can also try Baby as well. Both brands have released good solid staple pieces in the past, so that might be worth looking into.

You should fit into F+F's standard sizes. I have similar measurements, but a little smaller in the waist. The last thing I bought was standard size and a perfect fit with exception to the sleeve length, but height may be your biggest concern. I've heard their custom sizing has been better lately, but it was wonky years back.

it's because you are quite a bit bigger than the stock photo/sample dress and with a centered motif, they did not use more fabric for the skirt, just gathered your skirt looser so it's making a weird shape. The lace is different and the color looks quite a bit different too. I'm leery of their stuff except for just a handful of pieces. I fear for the lucky packs, I really do.

Hime is more associated with sweet. It's all about the big hair, rhinestones, tiaras, lace, etc, and is normally related to hime gyaru. OTT classic is usually more historic inspired and mature looking, and has usually has a jewel tone color palette compared to hime's pastels; it's more Juliette et Justine to hime's Angelic Pretty OTT lace monsters.

You won't be able to wear this with your natural hair. To bring it away, wear a sort of OTT gothic wig. Add a lace bow to the top section of crossing -- if you can, even remove that awful, tacky crossing. Fit a light 'underskirt' under where the black meets the petti and add more ruffles...

Basically, to fit out this cosplay you'll need skills or money. And money could be better spent on actual lolita.
