This Innocent World sale has me all over the place.

>buys six items total in two separate orders (3 per order)
>gets back to me on my second order and not first order; all three items are sold out
>some of these items still listed still as in stock, some of these items don't even have the FEW LEFT listed on them
>check items from first order
>all sold out except one JSK
>JSK is in FEW LEFT status

So basically I may or may not get one item off of that entire order. I'm really hoping I do, though; I love that JSK and have wanted it for a while. I wish their ordering system wasn't so damn slow and inefficient, because if I knew I could actually get the items, I'd probably even try for more.

5'6 is absolutely fine for some of the brands. IW do quite often long length jsks which have a longer bodice, so ideal for taller girls. Boz are also pretty friendly on the length side of things if you're into gothic. AatP tends to run short I find, unless it's the longer corset jsks, such as Masquerade Theatre.

Their back shirring usually stretches 10cm above their measurements with ease. So JSKs that they give measurements 88cm/68cm usually go to 98cm/78cm. Any larger depends on the dress. Full elastic shirring usually goes to 110cm bust, about 90cm waist but depends on the dress

Work out, but do body weight stuff rather than weights (darebee, pop Pilates etc). Fit guys insist you don't get big lifting heavy, but while it's true you won't get to bodybuilder tier status it can be a pain trying to fit Asian sizing (particularly shoulder width) unless you have a small Asian size frame to start with.

Probably stupid question:
I ordered from the IW sale yesterday and soon after got an email informing me that one of the blouses I wanted is sold out. This is the only thing I've heard from them so far.

Are there any brands that make dresses that can look flattering on a 5'11 monster? I've always wanted to get into the fashion, but money and my height have kept me away. My summer job finally cured my money problems, so now I'm just looking for nice dresses that won't look like I bought them when I was 13.

Depends on the rest of your build. If you are lanky and really thin, then you'd look killer in a lot of Victorian Maiden and Juliette et Justine stuff, but if you're average build, then just try to find things with more of a dropped waist and longer skirt (some Baby/AATP stuff). The waist lining up weird on your body will probably be the toughest issue.

I'm 5'9 and IW is very hit or miss on me. The pieces that have looked the best have all been OPs, for the most part. Get IW size L for the length, even if the rest of you fits size M, because the sleeve length difference on the two is absurd.

Boz is also a really good choice because of how many pieces have longer bodices.

>> No.8464551

>>8464517
5'10 here. Generally speaking, anything longer than 95cm looks fine with an inch or so of underskirt. You can go without if you don't mind showing a bit of thigh but I'm conservative about that. 100cm+ and the underskirt becomes optional. Almost all the main brands except for AP and Meta release longer cuts semi-regularly. IW is known for making tea-length cuts on some of their pieces, and I personally really like how VM's longer cuts sit on me.

In terms of cuts, be prepared for things to sit higher on you. IW makes longer bodices if most of your height is in your torso. Baby/Alice empire waists are your worst enemy if your chest does not look prepubescent.

JSKs with adjustable straps and elasticized puff-sleeve OPs can be lengthened a couple of centimeters, but really the only way to significantly add length where there is none is underskirts.

I can see the mud thing. Even at this moment I'm trying to piece together which colorway would end up being the most flattering when worn. I love the green print originally but I'm having second guesses on if it'll look good worn on the JSK so leaning towards the dark blue. Hell even the light blue could have potential but we'll never know from that low quality preview of just it on the skirt.

Hey frillies, so I need your help on this! I'm planning on buying the Fantastic Carnival OP from the Angelic Pretty US-based website, the only problem is I'm a fatty-chan. (Not morbidly obese or anything, but right into beginning fatty territory, I fluctuate between a size 12 and 14 and have about a 38 or 39 inch waist.)

Fantastic Carnival will definitely not fit me the way it is now so like various other brand dresses I'll have to resort to buying two of them and taking it to my local seamstress to get it altered to fit comfortably. Only problem is they unfortunately only have 1 of the lavender and sax colorways left, no multiples of each! ;__;

That's where my question comes in, if I buy both in the two different colorways, would it clash terribly if I used one to add on to the other? So say for example if I chose the lavender colorway to wear and used the blue colorway's fabric to add onto it. Is this a bad idea? Should I just wait for one of these two colorways to pop up in the sales comm and then safely order it? What if I bought just one of them this time, is there enough material for a seamstress to work with to alter the sizing without me needing a second dress?

Seagulls HALP!

Hey,

May i ask something before dump a massive amount of money for materials: is rubber (latex) okay for lets say more than blouses or jackets? The colour is easy to match and looks nicely pastel if so wanted. I do costumes for theater and such outa it, also head pieces (quite large ones, rather stiff) like hats and ribbons.soon i'll buy a laser cutter and i will be able to do prints on rubber fabric and lace out of rubber. So im considering doing some lolita dresses, have already rubbered whool and cotton (with liquid latex) or socks as example, but i am unsure if people would get mad at me for fabricating a rubber lolita coord.... also you can nicely polish it, no washing required no stains possible and would cost arround the same as brand items

Only Meta has ever pulled off using latex for skirts and even then it was very questionable. It's certainly not okay for blouses.

I would also not recommend trying anything in latex unless you have a solid grip on garment construction. I've been working in latex for five years now and whereas I can say it's easy once you get the hang of it and the process is quicker, it's a whole different world from making anything out of fabric and you need SOLID garment construction skills.

Not to mention, it needs very specific care (handwashing after EVERY use) and stains VERY easy. It cannot be held against any metals or latex of darker colors, because metal will oxidize on it and it will pick up colors of other latex and fabric pieces; it will suck up dye like a sponge if the color is light.

I got my Meta Twinkle Journey set in the mail today! I didn't have time to do more than try it on quickly before I had to go to work (which is why I look like a new frump-chan) but here's a worn photo of the JSK, socks, blouse, and bow.

I got the long version and holy crap is it long. For reference I'm about 5'9 and it hits me barely above the knee, it'll probably be a ball gown on anyone shorter. I need a longer petti, because all of mine look awkward under it. I kind of engineered a faux petti for this photo with a few barely fluffy petticoats and longer normie skirts. Headbow is nice, no fit problems even though I have a larger head.

Blouse is white chiffon, has detachable waist ties and back shirring, pintucks vertically down the sleeves, came with two small detachable bows. I don't own any other Meta blouses for comparison but it's as nice as my AP and BTSSB blouses, and nicer than the one I got in the AP LP set from this year.

The socks are stretchy and came up maybe an inch and a half above my knee with no problem. They're more off-white than true white though, and it's not too obvious when worn, but when directly compared against the blouse they look practically cream.

I don't know, but you should have received an email telling you the item was out of stock. There's a chance they just made a mistake, or that the email went into the wrong folder.

How long should I wait before attempting to contact a buyer on Facebook (already attempted LM and the email listed there, the latter of which is invalid)?
My TOS states that invoices need to be paid within a day, but the buyer hasn't even read my messages, much less replied to them, in two days.
Since I'm pretty sure the email she listed on LM doesn't work, I'll have to edit and resend the invoice once she finally gets back to me.
Buyer also has some pretty bad feedback regarding communication and payment.

If it helps, solid IW pieces tend not to get scalped. If anything, they don't fetch a particularly good price, so most girls don't bother selling them, so it's true that you may never see this particular dress again on secondhand sales.

But, if you just want a solid IW piece, you can look for IW on mbok or yja, there's a fair number of them for 10k yen or less, a fair number of inexpensive blouses too.

>asking IW about buying stock

In any situation in lolita, anon, let me give you a slice of advice: Buy it.

You think you'll have buyers remorse later? Then just sell it. Never, ever hesitate in lolita.

If it's something like Tokyo Rebel, Baby SF, etc. they usually only have one of each in stock. On international or Japanese sites, it gets a bit more unclear of what's in stock, depending on the brand. IW is just the worst with this.

If this is your first coord idea, aim lower. There's plenty of items sitting in stock on IW. Go for something slightly less coveted so you get exactly what you want.

Also sun burns in the silicone oil leaving the surface sealed so till that point my biking capes turned darker blue and the silver one golden but it wont need any more care and it wont stain any more.

>unwanted socks
>basic blouses
>non "low stock" items

If any brand has an ordering system I like, it's Baby. I might just be going to other brands like them until they work this out. I just want to put an item in my cart, order, and confirm I have it for once.

They at least need to get someone that can check stock more easy. The issue with IW, from what I put together, is that they actually have to call their factory to see if things are in stock a lot. If you notice their calendar on the site, they're off on weekends, plus whatever their factory hours are. I had a dress "semi-confirmed", for lack of better words, but told me they had to call the factory on Monday just to double check. Maybe their issue is the factory not being so accessible and needing multiple calls that suck up their hours, rather than needing more staff?

I wear a slip with a lace v collar. None of my stuff is super sheer but something like that might be nice.

Got the headbow in green as planned, doesn't seem to have been much of a bloodbath actually.
Now just to wait until the green skirt shows up on secondhand sites.

Also they have the socks in a ivory colourway so maybe a special set for the ivory colour is really being planned.

Wow, that was.. really not a bloodbath. Almost everything is still in stock. Kinda regretting not getting the green jsk.. maybe it'll pop up somewhere.

>>8470631
But the green skirt is still available?

Yeah, only one op, two jsks, some socks, and the cape thingy sold out. Majority of the stock is still there.

Too expensive though. I'm sure it'll turn up on second hand sites like CC or Y!Japan for cheaper soon enough.

It's just that matching accessories from the release are a pain to find in the right colours so best to get those firsthand.
