Anything of lolita, jfash, cosplay, conventions, etc.

I'll start,
I can't stand short sleeve OPs, extra points if it's a bodyline dress. Some short sleeves are a fine length, but like pic related, I think it's too short.

Completely agree, OP. I think that super short sleeved OPs or blouses with really short sleeves are really unflattering.

>My pet peeve

Lack of personal hygiene in lolita. I understand if it's the end of the day and your makeup isn't perfect, or if your hair has gotten a bit frizz, but flat out greasy, unwashed hair, scuzzy teeth, unclean nails, etc. are inexcusable things.

Angelic Pretty has been pissing me off lately. They're rereleasing everything, to the point where I don't even want to bother trying to get things anymore. They'll just open up a MTO or do another release. It's also annoying how they don't listen to their western customers at all. We emailed asking for rereleases for years and years, but they didn't do shit until the Chinese lolitas started asking. Also Shanghai gets an exclusive Celestial special set but not SF? Why the fuck is that? SF has been around longer and Shanghai didn't even have a physical store for a while. At this rate I might buy only from baby and IW from now on.

I think the girls that do wear lolita casually just don't post anymore. I kind of miss daily_lolita where you can really see girls posting about wearing lolita for weekend shopping, getting ice cream, etc, instead of big tea parties or con events.

They're also getting rarer and harder to find. Part of the fallout from insisting on the lolita rules are the number of newbies who are quick to point out an outfit breaks the rules or isn't lolita if it doesn't have a petticoat, or a blouse, or "omg she's ruining my dream dress!". So I can see how it's easier for people not to post, or at least label their outfits otome or just casual cute, instead of putting themselves under potential scrutiny from the petticoat police.

Probably because of all the replicas coming out of China.

>> No.8546451

I think frankly, the reason why we don't see more casual or toned-down coordinates is because people don't want to have their pictures posted everywhere. Especially because of some strict rules the community as a whole has set for themselves. It goes beyond making sure your shoulders are covered and you're wearing a petticoat. So they don't get posted or if they are, they aren't widely shared. Otherwise, it's an OTT outfit, because more thought, time and perpetration was put into it. If it was an event, perhaps better photography rather than a mirror selfie. Now we've got newbies coming in believing this is the standard.

You can't complain about all of this being the standard, and then turn around and nitpick everyone to death including down to their facial features and expect there to be no repercussions that come back on you and everyone else as a whole. People are reading this shit. Beginners are impressionable and especially the young ones coming in from places like Tumblr (as much as we hate it) want to please others, even if it is jumping on every bandwagon or tumblr or lolita trend there is.

I think my biggest pet peeve is people who constantly complain about piercings. I have one and I take it out in lolita unless I can coord it, but I see so many posts that are "ugh she'd be perfect IF SHE DIDN'T HAVE THAT TINY DOT ON HER NOSE" or "This coord is cute EXCEPT THAT BULLRING THAT IS ACTUALLY COORDED PRETTY WELL".

Like, it's perfectly fine to not like them, and I understand not liking them if they're huge eyesores that they didn't try to coord, but there are so many coords that they really don't stand out in or look nice and every damn person posting has to comment about how they hate piercings.

Anything alternative can ostracize you pretty quickly in your work place, earrings included.

I personally think lolita is a style that was based off of a creepy victorian doll look, and it evolved into what it is today. Brands like MM and VM and some indie brands make some historically inspired pieces, but that's not what the roots are. I have no problems with girls who do historically inspired stuff, but it's annoying when they bash on sweet lolitas for not being elegant and classy enough, like "this isn't a real lolita style, real lolita style is victorian and rococo". Like say that to Misako's face, bitch. I think its safe to say she's better versed than them in the fashion, and she's seen in pastel prints all the time.

I agree with this. However, AP is arguably the most iconic and most popular lolita brand, and I don't think no one can just dismiss it as "not lolita". Whether or not someone likes the style, they have to accept that it's a large part of the fashion and that's not going to change.
>also, victorian dolls are historical by the way, and their clothing is based on fashions of the time
But Victorian dolls don't look like Victorian people. The focus was on the doll's aesthetic as a whole, not the clothes dolls wore. And if moving away from "victorian" part of it is a crime, then so is moving away from the "doll" part. Classic and Sweet styles both break away from the original look, and that's not a bad thing.

While I don't really agree with you, it does irk me when lolitas explain the fashion as if it were based solely on Rococo and/or Victorian fashions. Especially if they only reference one time period. Like in that reality show Lor did- it was fine, but it annoyed me that they only emphasized the Rococo influences. Not to long ago, it seemed people only pointed out Victorian influences. This fashion takes influence from other periods (Regency, Edwardian, 50's) and in many cases has it's own unique asthenic devoid of historical derivation i.e. much of modern AP and other brands.

This. A majority of what's popular comes from what brands put out. Baby's releasing a lot of classic and historically inspired nonprints lately, and those are more popular. And when all 170 of the different AP toyroom prints were released, they all obviously sold and continue to be sold. Maybe not a lot of people in the community thought they wanted an ageplay themed coord until it became an option.
I especially now that japanese lolita brands are so accessible, it's the designers that set the trends just as much as the community.

I almost feel like a bad lolita for this but: "lifestylers are superior" types. People who act like having delicate hobbies in lolita make you superior. People who act like nibbling biscuits and sipping tea is a "part" of the lolita "subculture" and if you don't do twee little Victorian/Rococo inspired shit then you're just some chick in a nice outfit and not a "true lolita".

I really hate to break it to these people but lolita got popular because of jrock. All the tea and sympathy is manufactured by brands, it's just a way of advertising their overpriced dresses in a way that appeals to the young girls in Japan who made up the vast majority of their initial market. It's 100% a manufactured fashion with no "true" roots in the Victorian era and it makes me salty when people act like lolita started as more than wearing clothes and listening to Malice Mizer on Sunday in Akihabara and hoping your dad doesn't see you.

I think the lifestyle is fine, I've never met anyone who was a lifestyler that used it as a form of elitism. I personally don't think that lifestylers are any better or "more Lolita" than anyone else, just like I don't think the ones who think it's just clothes aren't real lolitas or something crazy like that. But I do think it's a little bit sad that more people don't have that kind of passion and interest for the lifestyle aspect of things. I think the Lolita community could use a little bit of a romantic awakening.

On the opposite side of what you guys are saying, I can't stand it when lolitas act like shits and then try to justify it by saying "lolitas don't have to be perfect and wonderful we are real people" Have some basic decency, use your manners and don't curse like a sailor in public, and don't act like a 12 year old brat.

People don't know how to tightline, and thats ok cause I didn't know until I started heavily investing time and money into makeup. When I was a kid I would just grab my liner and pull my eye (like that stereotypical chinese eye thing) and run eyeliner between my lids. It would catch my lower waterline and tightline for me.

I get so pissed seeing auctions on LM for a $300 dress and the difference between the BIN & SB is like $25. Who do you think you're fooling? SB to BIN should be a decent enough difference that a seller might feel they have something to benefit through the risk of a bidding.

Out of curiosity, how do you gulls pronounce lolita? Where I'm from, it was usually pronounced with less stress on the first syllable, like 'lol-ita'.

There are select prints where it works, cotton candy shop for example, I think it's because the dress is printed all over and it makes it balanced, but ultimately I think it more depends on how you coord it.

In cosplay, generally speaking, I can't stand plushie accessories or props unless the character has them in canon. Like, a honey-senpai from ouran with the bear is fine and can be cute, but I just think it's tacky to see an L with a giant plush strawberry or something of that nature.

Mm. I think that I enjoy lolita for the same REASON that I enjoy historical fashion; It's luxurious as shit compared to what is currently popular. The textures, cuts and details are all such a big deal within the fashion.

I don't get the whole "Lolita is based on the Victorian/Rococo era!" thing, though, especially when you're using that to explain the style to normalfags. Perhaps originally it was, but modern Lolita has diverged from that style far too much to still make the comparison.

I already kind of do this, I usually hang up my dress and blouse and put my jewelry in a tray when I get home, then if I'm going back out, I only need to quickly put them back on. I just wished it looke daintier than just sitting around in bloomers and a cami.

This. There are some characters where this may be not accurate, but it makes an effect that suits the character and adds to its power. Cosplay should be about more than just accuracy. It should be like fanart — Accuracy combined with creativity centered on the character. Cosplay should be about quality.

And, all cosplay/jfash is done for attention points. Don't try and lie and don't try to act like this is a thing to criticize cosplayers for. If they didn't want attention then they would make the costume and prance around it in their living room listening to 80s rock with a fuck to give. But, no, they are at a convention. If something unique and "out there" there fits the character, I want to see it done. I'd love to see a Sailormars with those wings and painted flames that flutter as they move. That kind of wings would also work with a Selenity if done in proper colors, and there are loads of characters that would be great. You're just jelly because you're boring besides them. Oops.

>> No.8564787

okay, since you asked...

"yeh" is phonetic. it makes sense as a regional variant of "yeah." it also doesn't already exist as another word, so there is little chance for confusion. like using "gawd" or "fuark," it gives personality to casual writing.

"woah" would need to sound like "Noah" or "Shoah" to make sense, but no one who spells it that way pronounces it with two syllables. it is simply a misspelling of "whoa," without any logic behind it.

again, if you do pronounce it "wo-ah," you are in a minority. most people who use it mean "whoa" and are probably repeating the wrong spelling they picked up somewhere. it's not even an organic/phonetic mistake like "could of" (which should be "could've") is. i can't figure out how this weird, unphonetic misspelling of a common word, which has a very old history of being spelled "whoa," could have even gotten started.

so it is a pet peeve for me.

lol most ita's say this. You suck. For gawds sake no lolita's dont have superstrict rules but a fashion is a fashion. You can't say you're steampunk and wear stuff so colorful like a clown. You can't say you're wearing a dress but then actually wearing a skirt and a blouse. Learn stuff at least. Lolita's nowadays wear petticoats, even old-school lolita's had flat petti's. YES lolita dresses and skirt have certain lengths and shapes because of the elegance statement of the fashion and a simple skater dress will never have that even when it has a nice print or cute colors. Don't just think because all your ita friends wear things like you do that it is actually is what you think it is, be more observant and read at least some things on 4chan here, you can learn from it.

Off-topic, but dinosaur variants aren't typically acceptable. The OED is a good resource for historic English usage, not necessarily modern.
