Welp. Guess she wasn't really interested after all. My comm already has a fuck ton of handmades anyway. So I wasn't really psyched about her "I don't want to spend that much" comments mostly because I know she'd rather spend it on cosplay material.
I feel like she wants to be friends but why is she being so weird about it?

Our annual holiday meet is coming up soon. Usually we do Secret Santa but this year the comm feels really divided so we're just going to decorate cookies and make ornaments instead.
I'm really looking forward to seeing everyone since I haven't been to many meets because of a falling out I had with someone. I'm pretty sure she's already told everyone our buisness, and that I'm a huge bitch, bully, etc.
But I wish she knew that she's actually the one who's being a bitch. She continuously posts passive aggressive things about me on her Facebook, and some of our mutual friends ask me what the deal is because it's obviously about me. I just tell them I don't know because we're not friends anymore, and leave it at that. I don't feel the need to have other people know what really went down between us because that's private. I just wish she felt the same way...because she has fucked lolita up for me, comm wise.

Agreed. The good feelings from being in a large group of like-dressed individuals is aesthetically pleasing and all, but I hate small talk and having to mediate. Especially since a lot of lolitas (in my area anyway) are socially awkward whereas I'm high functioning and can engage in conversation with almost anyone. I don't mind going to lunch with friends but going to a meet up becomes less appealing the more I engage in lolita outside of the comm. I'm in the US though! I'll be moving sometime next year due to my work and am dreading it. At least I'm getting used to life as a lone-lolita haha..

Please /cgl/ I need help. So I'm transgender, and into lolita fashion, and by god is it hard to prove to people that this isn't a fetish.

I've come out to my mum and she is extremely accepting, however she is also very protective, especially in what I wear. eg nothing poofy, nothing that is really overtly feminine despite what I want.

how do I tell her that I like to wear cute dresses? and how do I convince her that this isn't a fetish?

I'm almost in the same situation as yours anon.
Difference is that my sister will openly talk about how much she hates anime because she knows how much it means to me.
In one of her final years of high school, she chose to do multiple projects that had a focus on Japan - Religion, pop culture, history, etc.
Various of my anime DVDs have gone missing over the year, as has a few mangas.
She also claims to hate Japanese video games despite having multiple jrpg related tattoos on her body.

I don't even know which one of us have it worse, but I feel for you anon. It's horrible to not get along with siblings. I wish we could make peace cause it'd make our parents so happy, but she's such a petty and immature person that I can't even gather an ounce of energy to say a word to her anymore.

My own feels:
>Grampa is receiving assisted suicide aid tomorrow (it's legal here under special circumstances)
>Kind of breaking apart
>Friends don't talk to me at all lately, even after hinting multiple times this weekend that I'm in dire need of some company right now
>Sisters' bf who is as much of an asshole as she is, is coming over on christmas eve which means I won't be celebrating christmas with my family this year because of how unbearable they are when they're together.
>After working out heavily every day for a month, I've just noticed very prominent stretch marks that weren't there before. Apparently it's a good sign in my case, but I'm feeling ugly af right now as a result of it.
>Only friend who lives anywhere near me just declared that she's pregnant, so that's the last bit of my social life going out the window once she's given birth.
>Was supposed to work on cosplay this weekend but I just cannot find any motivation whatsoever.

I want to stay young forever to keep wearing sweet lolita forever.
But eventually we all age,become ugly and old so that's not going to be possible and surgery can only do so much before you look like a surgery freak.
I wish I was a doll, I wish I would never ever age.

I'd reccomend wearing casual lolita to start, maybe even otome kei like that other anon said. I personally never refer to lolita as lolita to my parents. I tend to call it "Victorian-inspired" or "EGL" to them. I'd say shy away from OTT sweet coords since those tend to give off the strongest ddlg vibe to normal people. (side note: puffy sleeves and bright colors tend not to be flattering on masculine bodies as opposed to more elegant, structured ones do).

If your mother is accepting, there are a lot of great documentaries about lolita. PErsonally, I would binge a couple with my sister in a kind of casual way, then a couple weeks later went "hey, you know that victorian-dress documentary thing we were watching? I think I wanna try it out."

There are a lot of ways you can incorporate lolita into your wardrobe--Fanny Rosie is a great example of this. Her clothes are often lolita-inspired or straight up lolita, but the way she styles them wouldn't make the average person wary.

P.S. I hope your transition goes well! And honestly, /cgl/ is a hostile place for transwomen or literally any person really.

There are a couple of good apples here, but all in all, I'd recommend a different community, perhaps a facebook group, aliceholic...I heard tumblr has a pretty booming egl scene. I don't personally use it, but I hear it's pretty accepting of LGBT folk.

I think it depends on the person who died? I know plenty of people who do nothing but festivals each summer, so let's say a friend died close to the date one of them, you could make it a tradition to go to that specific festival to party in that friend's place, or something.

I agree that it's kind of shit that they blew anon's bf off over it; why not see if he wanted to come along, for instance; but I do understand the sentiment of going somewhere in remembrance of someone. We don't know what the "vacation" entails, maybe the person and their friends went there a lot so it's their special place.
People grieve in different ways, some do it alone and others like to get together and do stuff the person who died liked or cared about.

I'm very bad/awkward/uncomfortable with kids unfortunately (likely due to some very bad childhood trauma that caused me to grow up faster than I should have).
Just recently, before her announcement, she watched me deal with a toddler and I was basically close to tears from having no idea what the fuck to do or say whenever said toddler tried to interact with me. At that time, I also told them that I've come to terms with the fact that I actually think kids are pretty cute, I just don't want one myself.
So at least I trust that her and her boyfriend are aware of how happy I am for them for taking this step. I just don't have the ability to communicate on that type of level that kids require.

I know that she and her boyfriend are still my friends, they always will be, and I really am excited on their behalf. Just kind of sad at the same time cause I know that we'll be seeing each other a lot less from now on.

I know I'm obviously bitter, but still, it really sucks that this kid asks for a console and a ton of games and gets it. But I ask for a single game for our old and busted PS2 as a kid and won't get it because "girls don't play video games, grow up". It's still funny though, I had to sit them all down and explain power portals and video game toys when my mom came home with just the video game.

You sound like me. Before my siblings started having kids I had no fucking clue how to deal either. Toddlers are easy. Just give em a bit of no-brain interaction like wiggling their favourite toy in front of them, gentle tickles, babytalk, etc. If they fuss to much you can always hand it back to mom.
Then when they get to talking age, just let them talk to you. Direct the conversation so you can ask things like "hey what are you doing/playing with/is that so? cool, so this character is...". Those are easy questions that don't need a lot of input from you. Most kids just love blabbering about whatever. Plus, you can make up how they think that way so that when they get a bit older and require a bit more interaction, you can talk about ponies or dragons or whatever shit they're into.
Don't be discouraged if the baby cries at you; that's what babies do, they cry at everyone they see at least once. I wouldn't drop your friend over a baby, but just be mindful that your friend's priorities will shift.

I completely get where you are coming from, I am actively scared of children, probably stemming from similar reasons.
3 things I've discovered since everyone started having kids:
1. babies aren't scary because they are very straightforward, and if they cry the parents take them back off you and it's fine.
2. individual children, that you know well, are in general, less scary. They get to now you, you get to know them and unless they are having a tantrum (which isn't your thing to deal with anyway) they can be fun.
3. Once they start school they are great because you can communicate with them properly and a lot of the fear goes away.

I still find kids really really difficult, but I can enjoy being an auntie more than I thought I would. Also buying toys and tiny cute clothes is amazing.

Maybe stop hinting at things and outright ask for what you want. Sometimes hints seem obvious to you when they actually aren't to other people who inherently know what you're thinking.

Also, personally, I'm just turned off when someone wants me to essentially hold their hand through a new hobby. And would never agree to a group cosplay with someone who has never been and done it before. Mentoring and spoonfeeding is not fun for me, and I'm not going to make my hobby not fun to appease someone else.

Anon, purchase a costume and wear it. Any costume. Nowadays you can get cosplays for dirt cheap from Bodyline and eBay and they aren't the worst things ever. Get a cosplay of a character you like, go to a con, have fun with your friends. Tell them you want to make your next one and ask for help.

Making a cosplay and organizing a group cosplay is a lot of work. It's not surprising to me that your friends aren't enthusiastic to jeopardize their plans to take a risk on a cosplay newbie. I don't think it's personal, it's just hard to take that plunge.

See above problem. If they don't want to go to the con wth me (cosplay irrelevant) then it doesn't matter if i get a costume or not and I won't go alone.

I think the problem is i just have shitty taste in friends because I had trouble making them for a long time growing up.

and now i don't even know how to make friends online anymore because I don't get online as often now that i'm married.

i don't WANT a group cosplay I want to go to a con AS a group (as in, with a group of friends). I'm not retarded enoughto expect people to carry me through a group cosplay or anything. I just want people to say "You should go with us" whn I mention i want to go to a con but don't have anyone to go with. Why is that such a god damn crime to be sad about? Jesus christ.

I just came here to vent guys stop making me feel like I've done something wrong when my friends legitimatel make it clear they don't want to go with me. That hurts. Maybe it's me. Maybe it's them. It doesn't make it not hurt.

I never once said "I want us all to dress as this together" or "Show me how to cosplay" to these girls.

I said "I would go to cons but i don't have anyone to go with and don't want to go alone" since inviting myself to their group would be rude, and "I've never cosplayed before because i've never been to a con." I don't mention i don't know where to start because if i had proper motivation (Like a group of friends that don't pretend to like me when they clearly don't) I'd look more into how to make my own cosplay.

2. I've addressed why i don't just invite someone myself: My friends are already going together, they've made it clear they don't want me to go with them, and the only other friends i hve don't cosplay/like anime or like crowds. Nice reading comprehension

Nah. I'm a bitch online but i'm pretty shy in person so if anyone hates me, it's not for what you're seeing here I assure you. There's possibly some other quality they don't like but iit's not this.

That being said, no, one of the people was a cunt about it. The other not so much, but i was kind of upset people were thinking i expected the world on a platter.

Point: It is shitty for your best friend to invite you to a con, thn invite someone else and never tell you until after the con is over.
Point: It made me sad that my new friends at school don't want to go to the con with me
Point: I'm sad because no one else I know would want to go to a con so I either go alone or i don't go.


And considering the above best friend is well known in the CGL community as, we'll say, "not a good person" I feel kind of confident that I'm not the problem in that case.

In the latter it's probably that they don't know me all that well but it doesn't make me any less sad.

No one addressed the fact i got completely invited and then silently uninvited before and instead focused on something else that wasn't even part of my post.

Anon there is so much to unpack with you and your situation.

If you're a bitch online, I'm sure that attitude shines through your personality IRL.

No one assumed you expected the world on a platter. The advice given - to be blunt about your desires and/or just take your own dang self - was not rude advice and was not the type of advice given to someone who seems like they want the world on the platter.

> above best friend is well known in the CGL community as, we'll say, "not a good person" I feel kind of confident that I'm not the problem in that

If she's so bad, go make new friends. Seriously, if you're complaining about her on /cgl/ instead of just distancing yourself from her and making new buddies, you're no catch yourself.

>But I'm shy!
But you're an adult and these things obviously bother you.

>No one addressed the fact i got completely invited and then silently uninvited
That shit happens to everyone. It sucks, but you can't always rely on people to follow through on a generous financial offer.

>got told i was wrong for being sad that i got uninvited
No one said that. You literally just said no one addressed it.

tl;dr either you are a shit and you're not aware of your own shit behavior, or your friends are shit and you need better friends. Maybe both! Go join the forums for the next con you're interested in attending and find people to attend it with there, or something.

Here ya go retard. It kills cancer cells in a lab setting. Many cancer patients already undergo treatment in legal states like Colorado. Look up how many children it's helped. It's fine if you don't like recreational but don't be a retard and deny medical benefits when it's been scientifically proven.

I mean it's better than pumping our kids full of meth (adderall) and heroine (Many opiate based painkillers) right? :) or yknow, fucking chemotherapy/

It's not like you smoke a doobie and you're cured. It's usually in concentrate form taken orally for a period of a month or months. You basically sleep through all of it.

yes, it was an issue of bureaucracy attempting to classify kids' meals. there was 0 science involved in that case. in fact, scientists would know that a tomato, the most vegetable-like part of a plain pizza, is a fruit anyway.

scientific studies have checks and balances to guard against stupidity and are rigorously examined by fellow experts who love to point out flaws, which helps promote a high and objective standard of research. it is not a perfect system but comparing a scientific study to bureaucrats trying to fudge the nutrition quality of a school lunch is troll-tier retardation.

Lots of newfangled drugs have killed cancer cells in lab settings, only to fail in real world tests. Is it promising? Yes! Is it "cures cancer"? Still got a long way to go to prove it conclusively.

What is not in doubt is that it does help alleviate symptoms of chemo side effects and other unrelated diseases, which is a great reason to keep it around regardless.

So yes, at this point the "cure" claim is still very much up in the realm of homepathic tinctures and Reiki masters.

I feel like nobody in my area likes me and it's really upsetting. I moved here about three years ago but this year was the first year that I actually started going to more cons. I've met plenty of people and a few have added me from cosplay Facebook groups but a lot of them either avoid people at cons are just seem really standoffish. I'm the kind of person that doesn't push people so if they seem disinterested, I try not to bother them.

In kind of a last ditch effort, I joined a local cosplay group that holds meet-ups. Everyone seems to already know each other and I feel like I'll be really out of place next year. The person that made the group is the one that recommended it to me and while they seem like a nice person, they're also hard to get a read on.

I just feel like I must be a shitty person or something because I see them all hanging out with each other or meeting up for the first time and nobody ever contacts me. I don't want to become overly annoying and I hate feeling like I'm begging people to talk to me so I normally just give up. I'm having a hard time dealing with it mostly because I have such good luck meeting people at cons outside of the area. I've become good friends with people that I've met at out-of-state cons and I'm starting to feel like the community here might just be a lost cause.

You're definitely right about not trying as hard as I could. In my head, I'm always afraid of being seen as one of those annoying assholes that can't take a hint so to avoid it I just stop trying.

I don't really want friends "handed" to me. If anything, it's the opposite. I've gotten used to doing things by myself and it's hard to break out of my habits of flying solo. I do have to blame myself for a lot of it because I'm not a very open person and I don't really talk about myself to other people. Goes back to not wanting to be annoying and my own assumption that nobody really cares. I've been burned a lot of times and it's made me incredibly guarded which is bad in these kinds of situations.

It's definitely something that I personally need to work on. I'm even really closed-off with my own family and, you're right, I can't expect things to change if I don't talk more.

If it makes you feel uncomfortable then I don't wanna push the idea on you, but I think it would be good for both you and your friend to keep hanging out even with the baby around. I mean this does depend on how close and comfortable you are around each other, but it's likely that she will really appreciate the company.

In the first few weeks after I had my daughter I felt like shit. I couldn't go anywhere or do anything and I felt this weird disconnect from everyone. I felt isolated and lonely, I was basically just a sleep-deprived milk bag. I really wanted to invite people over but the house was messy (well no shit) and I felt like I would be bothering them to come hang out at my shitty place. Months later when I talked to my friends some said they wanted to hang out but they didn't want to take away my family time, so it was a real herp derp moment for me in hindsight.

If you hang with your friend after birth, she will appreciate it. Even if you just hold the baby so she can go the bathroom and do her fucking dishes and eat one meal without a baby glued to her tit (can't tell you how many crumbs I got into my kid's hair from all the meals I ate while she slept on me), it will count for a lot.

Babies are easy. They like cuddles and being rocked and talked to gently. Toddlers are easy too; mine just goes up to people with her toys and guides the interaction. And by the time the baby gets that old who knows, maybe you'll know them so well you'll feel better about them or even kids in general.

Anyway, best of luck, I also wanted to say good job on your fitness and mental health stuff.

Regardless, January is a bad time to start hitting the gyms. Everyone who ever was dissatisfied with his/her body and been living an unfit lifestyle (and that is a lot of people), try again after New Years. The gyms will be packed with people who usually flake out by February, and all the equipment is occupied 90% of the time. I myself will have to switch over to my bodyweight training program for that moth.

We'll see! I hope that we can at least get past this very awkward stage, but I think I tend to make it worse.

Yeah, I am! Granted, being the smallest out of the group isn't saying too much-- the second smallest is probably 40ish pounds larger. They've all got the confidence of fitness models or some shit and show their bellies and legs all the time. I can barely do booty shorts, don't even mention showing my stomach or too much chest.
Being the smallest doesn't mean I couldn't stand to lose a little bit, too. I'm definitely soft and that costume has absolutely no room to hide anything. Alas, they want to be instafamous and they know that they'll need a mostly naked girl to get there, so the pressure continues.

IW and shirred baby are not exactly the best for boobs. IW bodices are known to be cut so flat that they boobloaf on anyone with more than a 2-3" difference between bust and underbust.
Also the "moitie is tiny" thing is a myth, they just list all of their dresses as 82cm bust and 66cm waist which is clearly not the case with the majority of the shirred items.
If you like Moitie, I'd recommend looking at other gothic brands like Chantilly and Atelier Pierrot.

You might need a larger-sized bento to make sure you're eating a reasonable portion if that's the case. They're usually designed to give about 600 calories when used for rice - sandwiches and salad take up a lot more room than rice does.

>> No.9290216

I haven't ever had that issue, but you could line your container, or wrap your sandwich with parchment paper, cling wrap, or wax paper and see if it helps. You could also invest and get a nice pyrex container.

It's ok. It's nice for a sports anime to show their actual routines/what they are doing without the bullshit pseudo-magical special moves that other sports shows sometimes do. They are just regular skaters. It was kind of fun though and probably worth a watch.

Somehow I ended up caring more about cosplay than anime or video games or making friends. So, when I go to cons I don't have fun unless I know someone. And I'm kind of a shitty friend? Like, I'm selfish and I'm a bad listener and unreliable.

I used to just keep going cause I was addicted to sewing and the 'idea' of a con, but now I've been worn down to the point where I'm lucky if I finish even one cosplay.

Alternatively, just tell her that you don't want there to be a misunderstanding in your relationship and that you're not into women, but enjoy her company. Tell her that you care for her, but not in THAT way, and make sure to give her a hug. Explain to her, if she's having a poor reaction, that you'll give her some space if she feels she needs it, but you definitely want to remain friends, because friendship is far more important than some silly romantic feelings. Ask about the next time you two can hang out.

Uh.... Lolita and stuff.

If you're uncomfortable saying it straight out to her face, try to bring it up through a conversation topic not related to her. Say offhandedly that you want to go to Pride someday, even though you're straight. Or joke about being [other gay friend]'s straight best friend. It might come across kind of weird or awkward depending on delivery, but probably better than the alternative.

If it can wait a day or two (even if your baby is really sick, if he's still holding on), try to go sign up for pet insurance that kicks in immediately, I think petsmart/banfield does this if you're in the US? It will still be expensive, but pet insurance should eat up a good portion of the cost. I don't know if it still works this way, but my dog shattered his leg years ago and we were able to pull this trick to get the cost down on the surgery he needed to reconstruct his leg.

Okay, so that's one "yes," one "no," and one "booty!!"

Also, I got some new loli-able shoes in the mail today! My dog pooped on the box, but the shoes were fine.

Kitty man is feeling much better today and I'm beside myself with happiness. Thank you all for your concern, gulls. He's eating and drinking on his own, and was walking around with his tail up so that shows me he's not feeling depressed. Still not 100% better but his antibiotics are definitely working their magic.

Thanks for the suggestions guys. I'm really glad he's feeling better, but it's a bit of hope just in case some horrible thing happens to him again or one of my other cats.

My brain is in constant gleeful overload but I feel actual physical twinges of pain thinking about completely innocuous things like finishing a series as if I were feeling grief. Somehow thinking about it makes me even more gleeful.

I think I broke

Mildly /cgl/ related feel:
>friend is coming in January from TX to local convention in CA
>over the moon that I live near the convention center this shit is happening at so I don't have to worry about anything but the ticket I can just walk there in 20 minutes


Non-/cgl/ feel:
>drifting away from college friends, efforts to strike up conversation brings in only one person that is also trying as hard as I am
>trying to have a meetup after christmas day to go to an art museum
>no one sounds off interest but me and her
>literally no one replies but her
>3 days later one other person mentions his Co-op's New Years party but most of us had plans to stay with family anyway
>same person also dumped me this year because he felt that he wanted to be alone get his shit together so it would be awkward to go to the party anyway

I want 2017 to get here already
