How does your friend know the dress was not the price she says anyway? if the dress price is not listed anywhere?
I used her SS just today and she quoted a very elusive JETJ dress for less that 15,000yen. I don't believe you anon, sorry. She's a great SS.
Also she has been doing SS for like 5 years now. That's a very long time for her "scamming ways" to come to light.

How can you even say the coloring is different? She didnt do the two toned eyes but the orange eye on the original is like exactly the same color she chose.
There are way too many convenient similarities for me to think that she wasnt heavily inspired by it. She obviously didnt trace but she basically used it as a reference.

>How can you even say the coloring is different?

Thanks for proving you have no fucking practice in art and don't deserve to have people take your opinions on this particular piece seriously. I was talking about the TECHNIQUE. The TECHNIQUE is not similar AT ALL. The one on the right is far more flat and gives off a far more "animated" feel.

>There are way too many convenient similarities for me to think that she wasnt heavily inspired by it.

Besides being a fairly cartoonish white cat drawn in semi profile how are they similar? Proportions, shading, style, these things are all significantly different. You're ignorant in this topic and it shows.

Just because I draw a certain kind of flower at a certain angle doesn't mean anyone else who wants to draw a similar flower at a similar angle is fucking copying me. Educate yourself on shit like this before farting out an opinion.

>> No.9206238

i wouldn't say it's a direct copy, but it definitely reeks of someone latching onto jetoy's popularity by mimicking the style. they just made sure not to trace or copy/paste in order to fool layman-types like >>9206223

if it was just someone's tumblr post and they mentioned jetoy as an inspiration it'd be fine, but trying to pass it off as original and presumably selling it is pretty lame

if i had seen the cat in the pendant by itself first, i would've just assumed someone cut out a jetoy printout and made it into a charm.
you can see the slight differences when they're right up against each other because the knockoff isn't directly traced.

Left is by Peppermint Fox. Right is by HBJ. No, they're not identical, but you have to admit they're very very similar. People called the creator of HBJ out on the similarity and she said it was just a coincidence. Oh well, right?
But then she comes out with >>9206193. It's possible for artists to change styles, sure. But to suddenly, drastically change her style to closely resemble that of another commercially successful artist? You can't honestly believe this is just another coincidence.

Because indie brands and artists that copy-cat off of other indie brands and artist are the lowest types of backstabbers.

I unfollowed her when she pulled the peppermintfox copy-cat shit. I don't care if her stuff is cute, she has no ethics and no honor.

It's especially low because she owns a store where she was selling peppermintfox items, and then she started selling copy-cat items side by side with them; essentially poaching customers from the artists she was supposed to be representing.

Most people aren't publicly giving her shit about it because of her position in the community, but it's a really shitty thing she's doing and she's done it enough that there is no way that it is a coincidence.

You sound like you're taking this way too seriously. Everyone emulates art styles they like. Everyone changes it up.

If you really wanna stick it to her, go buy official choo choo cat pendants instead. Doesn't exist? Well, shit. Hardly a brand violation at that point. It can't be stealing business.

idunno, almost all their prints this year have gone on sale instead of selling out, a fair few went on to be priced at 50% off, AP Tokyo just put a bunch of dresses on sale for 10,800, and a couple of prints went down to a previously unheard-of price of ~5k yen.

Like, there's gotta be some point in which AP looks at their sales and go, "yikes, we've never had to sell exclusive print dresses at the ~5k yen mark before, maybe we should cut back on stock". At this point I don't really believe it's all due to increased stock, seems a bit counterproductiive to me to have so much stock and then have it all go on sale later, and it remains unbought long enough to be reduced even more. Really seems more to me like no one particularly likes this year's releases from AP.

The funny thing is I'm not even that anon you both were replying to.
And I don't even craft. But if others can find their style, why should you be an exception? Why being an artist in the first place if you can't contribute with your own ideas? Nobody cares about your problems, or skills, or life. Get your shit together or stop bragging and whining that you are surrounded by idiots who just can't appreciate your hard-working stealing. Because they'll never stop, and by making fools of everyone you only make it worse. Such a pointless waste of money to make a website and advertise here to ruin everything by your own behaviour.

Speaking of mossbadger, I personally don't think that she's being original enough to call similar items rip-offs. I only value artists and crafters who make their original designs, including art and shapes. It may be a great idea to combine things together in a new way, kind of invention really, but it doesn't have a personal touch to it. I mean, come on, everyone can purchase silicone molds off Ali and print Michelangelo. So no worries.

Yes, this makes sense, I feel like they're rolling in the dough when they do an MTO of some iconic, sought-after print, to the point where they have to close an MTO early and schedule a second one. But the monthly/weekly releases that they roll out generally seem to suck, and stick around in the online shop. Even the ones that get hyped up seem to sell out in only one or two colours, and then the rest hang around for a couple of months before going on sale.

I suppose making bank on the super popular MTOs of dresses every girl wants tends to make up for losing money on the weekly releases, and would explain how they're still top seller for La Foret like >>9206980 says (well, that, and the La Foret shop always has exclusive special sets to draw buyers in).


The flipside of this is that now, when a print goes up, you'll get a few girls predicting whether or not it's a clusterfuck enough to go on sale later on, and the girls that are sitting on the fence might chose not to drop money on it now if there's a high enough chance the dress will only be worth half of what it is once AP puts it on sale. Yes, the girls who still love the dresses will still buy them, but it's still sales lost from those who like it, but gamble on the dress going on sale later, as almost all AP prints have gone on sale this year.

AP has always walked a fine line between just enough stock and barely enough stock as part of their marketing to get girls to buy first, think later. I just don't see a lot of benefit to the "so much stock, come back and buy it at 50% off later" strategy, is all.

Hello people of /cgl/

I am not a browser of this board but I've come here to ask for a little advice.
I'd like to make a gift to a dear friend of mine and, considering she into lolita stuff, I thought of buying her some kind of lolita accessory.
The point is that I have zero knowledge in lolita (and dresses or fashion in general) so I ask if you could give me some advice on where should I look for stuff, what should I avoid, which are the brands can be trusted more, excetera...
I've come here because I know she browses this board, to keep it a surprise I'll probably delete my posts when I'll be done.

Almost all of it is still available. Considering it seemed to have been a Halloween prrint I do think this is going to stick around and go on sale later.

If you have your eye on one of the cutsew OPs it might actually sell out before the end of October though.

My local store still had everything in stock late last week, but I'm guessing they'll go on sale at New Years, so 5 months might be pushing it if you're hoping to buy directly from AP.
Who knows though, they just slashed some summer sale prices even further because those prints haven't sold out yet.

The photo she posted is not the photo she said she took. Why would she even mention that she took the original if she won't upload it? She lied and then backpedaled.

That said, I actually side more with >>9206458 than anyone feeling outrage over this. There's some obvious inspiration, yes, but they also didn't JUST do a bunch of foxes in >>9206444 they did a whole lineup of animals. There's little doubt, IMO, that they find inspiration in the white cat artist referenced here, but finding inspiration from something isn't the same as directly tracing it or attempting to create a knockoff. I don't think it's productive to say they should list their inspirations also; if every artist did that, we would have to scroll past a ten page list before looking at ANYONE'S art.

Including yourself? You're not addressing how it's messed up that you expect someone to never defend themselves for the sake of "professionalism" while giving free reign to anons who can literally make whatever claims and reaches of logic they want. Telling us "hurr they should all be quiet" isn't a satisfactory response to that.

Nobody ever told Chokelate to shut the fuck up from posting here when anons were getting scammed out of their wig and tights deliveries. Or when she had quality control issues. Nobody accused her of lifting ideas from taobao when she started selling BJD tights. I remember being called jelly and vendetta for actually having valid critiques, not accusations of artstyle theft.
>People literally said they didn't want to buy from her on btb because of her posting her
But I bet they still glomp onto people like Chokelate and other e-famous lolitas who've admitted to posting here. Those people are imbeciles.

It can't be helped. Your boobs are pulling up the waist of your dresses so they'll all fit strangely.

You might need to lengthen the straps. If the straps are attached with buttons in the back it's an easy fix, otherwise you'll have to add fabric to make them longer. I only ever buy JSKs with adjustable straps for this exact reason.

Sounds like your breasts are taking up space in the bodice making in shorter- thus raising the waistline. Shirring adds space to the back rather than the front of the bodice unfortunately.

>> No.9209490

Are you also above average (Asian) height? That can affect the fit a lot too as a larger bust already pulls the dress Up even if it is below max measurements. If any have adjustable straps, see if the dress fit improves when you move the dress past the point the straps reach, you may just need them lengthened.

The hybrid poof monster is the one I have and it holds up well under layers of velvet as shown on the left here. I bought it over a year ago, in the hard tulle, and at the time I took these photos I think it was a month or two old. On the right is my sadly deflated bunny house one which was just over 6 months old at the time of review. I have to say that the melikestea one has held up very well - it gets stuffed in a shelf in my wardrobe and it still gives the same amount of poof as in those photos.

/cgl/, I have a question.

I recently purchased an older brand dress for cheap on Lacemarket. The price was pretty good, so I thought there might be damages. But the description said that it was in good condition with no flaws.

When I received it today, I realized most of it is what I would describe as dis colored. The parts that are supposed to be white are a greenish sort of gray. It looks like someone washed it on hot and the other color bled and stained it.

I'm not sure what to do. The dress was cheap, but the seller mentioned no damages. The dress appeared to be white in the proof picture, and all other colors of the dress online shows it as being white and not gray. I'm not sure if I should wash it in cold water and see if that improves it, or if I should mention this to the seller, and if it should be noted in the feedback. I wanted to ask your opinions before I messaged the seller. I don't want to make a big deal out of nothing.

Some socks. Long story short I thought IW fucked up my first order because they never got back to me and hadn't invoiced me for it. One of the colorways I ordered was actually marked as Sold Out, so I thought I was out of luck for the first order. I put in the 2nd one because I really wanted those socks, even if they were in a different color, and then they finally invoiced me for the first order.

I'm sure I can sell them as they'll be new and unopened, I was just trying to avoid paying for shipping and such. It was 2 pair of socks so with shipping it came out to almost $75

It's also uphill, depending on where you park or if you have to take public transportation.

Yeah, I'm cool with people gawking since I wear lolita often. I just wanna make sure the workers will think it's appropriate :^(

Anyone got a list or know of a site that has a list of all the Peppermint Fox companion releases? Trying to make a wishlist and see if there's any I've missed.

Also has anyone ever seen any of them go up on second hand market?

noob question. What's the best type of blouse to wear with a jsk that has the crisscross straps?

>No new general.

I'm going to Japan in a few months. How much time do you think it'll realistically take for me to go through Shibuya109, Laforet, the Tokyo ClosetChilds (ikebukuro, harajuku and shinjuku) and maybe ETC shinjuku?
Cutting off Shibuya entirely is an option - I just want to do all of my clothes shopping at once.

Also my boyfriend wants to come and idk how they'll deal with a big burly gaijin man?

You can get that shit done in a couple of hours.

Okay, sweet. The plan is that, first morning back in Tokyo, my friends will go pick up late-arriving friend from Narita and I'll buy shit while they're gone.

I'm going over with only a couple of outfits for the first week in Kyoto and then have a $1600 budget for clothes, hueh.

Thank you for the recommendation anon! I emailed IW and they were very understanding and cancelled my order. I'll be more careful from now on.

High collar or low collar (collar high enough above the criss cross or low enough to sit nearer the shoulder straps.

Or boleros.

Or blouseless if you're confident enough.

Sure, if you want to skip all of the good shops. Urahara is usually skipped by tourists despite being the best part of Harajuku.

Anyone knows if there is replica for Dreamy Planetarium? I saw one action maybe too cheap? I fear they might be replicas. There were plenty of those dresses on CL for cheap, so I see the possibility of getting a low price, but I can't tell.

LaForet brand shops are TINY, I never understand why people want to go there.

I'm so glad it worked out for you, anon! IW is definitely a brand you can e-mail if you have questions.
