Who has some feels to share? Specifically, cosplay and lolita-related feels??

>> No.9413273

Current gf was way into cosplay and was pretty keen on lolita, she borrowed her friends coord for a con and I thought she looked great.
but I can tell now that she's losing a lot of her energy and she seems really unhappy, the happiest I remember her was when she was cosplaying and talking about lolita and stuff. I really want her to be happier so I've been trying to talk to her about doing cosplay together or something and she'll start off really positive about the idea then shoot it down later. I think this stems from her lacking self confidence because shes gained some weight in the two years she hasn't done any cosplay.

I just hope she gets back into some of her hobbies so she feels better about herself, because I hate seeing her bummed out all the time

Sort of the same boat, except I have more than one dress like this, and most of them are still up on my sales page.

If no one buys them, I modify them when I have the time. So far it’s only been small fixes, like adding pockets and/or lining, shortening the sleeves on an OP (I live in the tropics, long sleeves was too warm), making ribbons removable (easier to wear), fixing up wonky bows. Have a couple of projects planned where I’m going to try and turn high-waisted dresses into normal-waisted ones, but I have to wait until I have some weekends free to do all the ripping and resewing.

I figure if no one’s buying them, then there’s no real harm for me to modify these dresses anyway, it certainly beats shoving them to the back of the cupboard if I can’t wear them as-is and no one wants to pay to own them.

I don’t recommend doing this if you don’t already sew, though. But if you really like the dress and still want it in another cut, it’s at least worth your time to take it to a tailor’s and see if there’s any way to make it fit better. Even things like the lace being itchy can be fixed by adding a ruffle so the lace doesn’t directly sit on your skin, or removing the lace entirely, or whatever the problem is.

Forgot to mention that whenever I try to apply for a regular, less intense part time job they look at my CV, ask me what I'm doing here when I have a degree, and reject me for being overqualified. It's not even like I don't want to work at all, but my field is so competitive and high pressure that it scares me. It feels like I only barely made it out alive with my degree but I'm too ashamed to admit it. College is supposed to be easier and more forgiving that the actual job part...

I've been considering selling off my lolita wardrobe. I only collected a small number of pieces in high school, but I'm a sophomore in college now and haven't worn any of it in years. I still really love the aesthetic and the dresses themselves, but I don't know if I'll ever get to wear them. I'm trying to save money and haven't bought anything in a long time. The idea of giving up on lolita and selling all the pieces I love so much makes me sad, but so does the idea of all that clothing just hanging in a closet at my parents' house forever. After college comes med school, and I figure I'll probably be too stressed out and busy to get more into the hobby. Plus, I'm way too self-conscious to wear the fashion outside of meetups and cons. Should I just give it up?

That's what I'm afraid of. I didn't realise that this was such a competitive field until I was too far in to turn back. Now that I've graduated it feels like I have to stay in it or else I'm a failure who wasted five years, but I'm worried my mental health can't take it. I went to therapy when I was in the middle of my first burnout and was prescribed medication, but everything we tried had side effects that made it worse than not taking anything at all.
Sometimes I envy my friend who studied Japanese and is now in vocational school. She's not using her degree at all, but at least she had fun, made a lot of friends and good memories and nobody blames her for going back to school for something different. My strongest memories are of crying in a bathroom stall from all the stress in between experiments. I don't want to go back to that. But I don't want to waste my education, either.

I use a couple prescriptions and self medicate with a few things to help me keep on top of work depending on what I need. I found mitragynine to be pretty useful for anxiety issues.

It is indeed IW. I assume you mean moving the buttons to lengthen the straps, which I already did. I'm actually considering moving them up again . There's this stupid row of lace right across the boobs and I'm just not sure where I want it to sit. I have other IW dresses with similarly simple bodices but they don't look as bad for some reason.
This is really putting me off IW altogether, thankfully my favorite print of theirs looks fine on me.

Honestly I've never understood people who only wear lolita to meetups/cons. Not even like I look down on them or anything, I just don't get why you would spend a considerable amount of money on a wardrobe that you will then only dress in maybe 15 times a year. Either you have a ton of cash to blow or no other hobbies, I guess?

If I'm honest with you, you're probably better off selling it if you haven't worn it in so long and see no real way to wear it in the future. Maybe keep one dress you really love in case you ever want to come back to it in the future, some casual pieces you might be able to wear in a non-lolita way too.

A friend and I started cosplaying around the same time and she's gotten much better than I have. She's been unemployed off and on while since we started, so she has more time to go to conventions and work on costumes, although she has less money to do so.

I'm doing two cosplays with her at an upcoming con and I'm scared I'm going to be outshined by her.

I know that she's gotten good because she's spent time and effort getting good, but its really hard for me to not get jealous of how good she looks and the attention she gets.

It doesnt seem to matter how much I cut or how hard I work out, the best I can do is keep myself from gaining MORE weight. I want to kill myself. I want to look hot again before im too old. I want to look good in my dresses/

Ive always felt stupid for thinking my weight gain might relate to my birth control but im starting to really think it might be, and im starting to contemplate the theory that maybe something is going on with my thyroid too.

I'm new to a comm and also a newer lolita and I'm so self conscious that all my comm is laughing at me. We have a handful of itas, and I can recognize them, but I can't tell if I'm one of them. I *feel* like I'm well-dressed, and nobody gives me concrit, but I feel like they secretly think I'm some loser ita who always looks like garbage. I also don't leave the house often, and I interact with roughly 2 people per day being my boyfriend and usually a friend will stop by or call. I'm even inbetween jobs so I don't talk to many people, at all. So I think maybe I take the fashion too seriously and forget how to make friends with people in my comm.

With those forms of birth control (implant and shot) people tend to either gain weight or not gain weight. It seems common with forms that can halt a period. You will likely lose the weight with removal. You'll likely never lose the weight if you continue. It seems some blow up, others don't gain a pound.

I have never believed that you have to birth a child to love it or that a child you birth is inherently more special than one you adopt. Lots of children get born into the world, but not every child gets adopted.

I respect your choice to have a kid and I'm very glad it has made a positive difference in your life, but you shouldn't let this try to dictate other peoples' decisions.

I want to add that my father told me I am selfish for not wanting children if my significant other might want one. Also because he wants grandkids. Funny thing, dad, you won't get grandkids. Sorry not sorry. I have also talked to my boyfriend of 10 years about the fact that I do not want children and while he does, he respects that I don't want them and he doesn't see it as a problem. I do not want to give birth. The idea of giving birth gives me the greatest anxiety ever. I don't want a fucking parasite sitting inside of me for 9 months, ruining my body and my vagina, and then feeding off of me and mooching off of me for 18 years. I will adopt if I ever feel the need to be 'more fulfilled' as one of my preachy fucking coworkers put it with her Jesus is holy talk, but other than that, no kids for me.

There are doctors who would be willing to do them on nulliparous women.

I'm not terribly familiar with these, but reddit (I know, I know) even has a child free resource. https://www.reddit.com/r/childfree/wiki/doctors

However, keep in mind tubal ligations are not as effective as IUDs or other long term contraception statistically. It may be wise to have a backup method even after a tubal ligation. Ideally, the best way would be to have your long term partner get a vasectomy, but if you're single, IUD statistically has a better chance of preventing pregnancy than tubal ligation. Also keep in mind the chance of a reversal of tubal ligation is quite low, which from what I presume is why you want it in the first place.

That's a really outdated mode of thought. Think of changing doctors because that means they're not keeping up with their literature. The thought process was that the cervix is not as favorable for women who didn't have kids so it's a harder procedure with a greater chance of complications, but that's been way long disproven. It's definitely doable and tons of women with no children get it every year.

My fiance said he would get a vasectomy (after he becomes a sperm donator), but im the only one with health insurance that may cover my surgery so I thought id take one for the team.

However a quick search says its 99.5% effective, which is pretty darn good, and if you do get pregnant with the surgery then its very likely the pregnancy is going to work out right.

I dont know about others but I certainly dont plan on ever trying to get it reversed, I just brought it up that it CAN happen sometimes, so it is an "option" if I ever just hated myself for it.

>>9415000
Oh yeah a few years later I got a new doctor and when I told her what the other one had said, which by the way, was exactly that about the cervix and such! She was like "Thats wrong!! You can totally get that if its what you really want!"

In which case I would say that maybe I would have one child and adopt another, but that was also out of the question apparently.

My fiance though just offered to get a vasectomy when I told him about the side effects im getting from my bc, so I think hes pretty cool with the no children idea at the very least.

I dont think any man is totally ok with adoption though, and I definitely understand why, I have similar fears, like my child running off to find their birth parents and leaving me or them never truly loving me no matter what I do for them.

Nope. 100% not. I've been saying it since I knew where kids came from. I've been saying it ever since my father and mother have talked about kids even when my siblings were born after me. I have said no through my teens, high school, college, work. I do not want children. I came from an extremely stable 2 person household, never spoiled [thats all my siblings except me - middle child woes]. I want to spend my money on myself. Be independent. Travel, buy things I want. I don't want to spend money on a fucking child and have to buy their plane ticket, their medical, their fucking cars after they crash the first one. I want my money to myself, to my boyfriend, and to my life. I don't even plan on changing this idea of mine and my SO is very on board with this as he wants to spend his money his way as well.

Not at all. It's fine to be a housewife if that's your choice. Your opinion is worthless because you're telling a stranger that they can't possibly have an opinion that contradicts with your own because they're too young to possibly have come to that decision rationally.

You should do the growing up.

If that were the case, every older man beyond their thirties in existence would have a trophy wife or girlfriend. Yet, there are a plethora of older men who do not have such an asset.

I'm currently struggling with this. I want to at least get my foot in the door with a career so I can continue building on it later and save up for their future without depending entirely on my husband, but many jobs won't hire a woman my age who's said she wants children. It's against the law to discriminate like that, but they all do it. The fact that I might go on maternity leave after a year or two is making it really difficult for me to get a decent job. I'm currently looking for vacancies posted by other women in the hope that they might be more understanding than middle aged and older men.

You don't have to tell them you want children. Worse come to worse, get a job, mention nothing about maternity leave in the future. They'll either give you maternity leave when you do get pregnant or fire you. Even if the latter happens, you can pick up a job once your child is older.

Do you want kids at some point: yes, no, unsure.
When I was younger, thought ah hell no, never gonna do that shit. Mostly because I had a really rough relationship with my father, since he always expected too much from me. Really soured the idea of being a father myself. Now that I'm older and grew up to not be a failure, I realized why he always pushed me to succeed. Everything has turned out pretty well in life for me, and I'm now really good friends with both my parents rather than hating my Dad with a passion. I would like to be in the same position as my father in the future, where not only are my children close friends, but also people I can rely upon when I become older. I would want my children to look exactly like my SO and me, because I think that's a bond you can't get any other way. Plus, it would make me happy having my SO getting to dress up a daughter so they can be cute together, or sharing my interests and hobbies with a son if that's what happens.

Stable household?
Very stable. My entire extended family is stable households, and twice a year about all ~40 of us gather at my grandfather's house to spend holidays together all day and catch up with everyone. It's an enjoyable experience and has really let me appreciate having a large stable family.

I know that they can be a pain and a burden, but I want them anyways. I feel like humans are miracles of life, and creating more is a part of that miracle.

I know that I want to have any YET. I want to be able to take care of myself, my kids, and my wife very comfortably first (with several months spare in case of no work), whether or not my SO wants to work.

I don't know if I'd adopt or not. I think I would, if and only if my significant other is incapable of having children. I'd be able to love an adopted child, but I think it'd feel different than if they were my own flesh and blood, regardless of how hard I'd try to feel differently.

Considering my track record with women, I don't think I'll have to be worried about any of this, though... hah...

To make it cgl related, I think I'd introduce my kids to different fashion styles (including lolita) early on and give them the capability to try each to find their own groove.
