My friend and I are competing in a cosplay contest together. We've been feeling confident, but the closer I get to finishing my cosplay the more anxiety I feel. I started with the mindset of "whatever happens happens, just do your best" but I'm still anxious that I'm not doing enough to stand out. I guess I'm just scared of letting my friend down... It's her first time competing and I want her to have a good experience. Pray for me gulls, I gotta keep my shit together

>> No.9507948

I mentioned a cosplay I'm doing and a friend of my decided that she's going to be in my "group" and has already invited another person without asking. I do not have a group. I am doing this alone. She has not watched the show, does not intend to before the convention, and does not like the studio that made it. Last year when we went to a panel for the studio she kept trying to get me to leave because she didn't want to be there. Whenever I mention working on anything she wants me to share references and information even though our characters look nothing alike and do not wear anything similar.
This just feels so pushy and annoying. I don't know why she's trying to make this involve her when she has no investment in the show or its characters or studio at all. Last year we tried to cosplay together and she didn't buy a single thing or tell me that she didn't until the week before the con despite that I had all my stuff.
I've never been an overly social person and I'm not confrontational so it sucks that I can't just do my thing on my own and I'm going to have to ask her to step back. I'm wondering if I could just ignore her talking about her "cosplay" because it probably won't happen anything.

Getting into lolita has really thrown into my face what an escapist I am. Maybe my whole ~aesthetic~ is just another desperate attempt to mask my disgust for myself. There's not exactly an EMS option for improvement.

Only cgl has preferences for those who wear lolita only to cons. I've never seen anyone get upset over lolitas who only dress up for meet ups.
Most of us have responsibilities and other interests outside of the fashion. I myself love hiking and being outdoors too, but like to take a break and wear frills once or twice a month.

Start out with something you will be able to alter later. I'd go with making the cosplay for your current measurements and then alter when you loose weight.
Unless you do heavy lifting or loose a lot, 10lbs won't make suuuch a difference in measurements that you can't alter.

Do you check your progress? Maybe compare your starting measurements with current ones, see how much you changed during weightloss

Not really but to be fair I started experimenting with fashion when I was very young so I didn't really think about the technicalities like "how am I going to pull this off?", I just thought "what do I want to wear?"/"what do I want to look like?"
So my only advice to you is to just start. Browse stores that have clothing in styles that you like, figure out the colors that suit your skin tone (remember that undertone matters!), memorize your measurements if you're shopping online, look at pics or art that inspires you and just go for it, buy one, two, three things that you like and try things. You'll figure things out eventually.

So far I've lost 1" from my boobs, 1.5" from my waist, and nothing on my hips, so I guess it's not a huge difference, but I'm going for something skin tight (which is why I'm losing weight) so I'd like the fit to be pretty exact. I guess there are a couple parts to the costume that aren't as unforgiving, though, so I'll just be really strict about calorie counting for the next month and hopefully by the time I'm done with the rest I'll be at my goal weight.

My confidence has been so low lately, like it's been shot. I'm getting more anxious (or well what I perceive to be anxiety).

How does one know if you've befriended someone? I messaged a cosplayer the other night just to chat about shared interests and... I can't help but feel like it was a pointless endeavor. Or maybe I'm just expecting too much. Like maybe I should go into this thinking "alright let's talk to them but if nothing comes of this oh well". Maybe I'm overthinking. I overthink a lot. I don't want to creep people out. I just want to befriend people. But then I think "well people already HAVE friends and i'm just a stranger" or I think "they probably get hit on or get creepy messages all the time what's the fucking point"

My mind and my heart is a fucking mess. I don't know what to do. I want to socialize and have good, strong friendships and maybe get into a relationship and enjoy myself but I'm terrified of everything blowing up in my face or me fucking things up or burning more bridges and messing up even more. I'm... so alone, and scared. I can't like... disconnect or detach myself from my fears. I feel everything at once and I worry too much for my own good and I... hate it. I hate myself so much.

I go to these cons to try and befriend people but I'm so terrified of messing up, and at the same time, I don't want anyone to know or see my weaknesses. Nor do I want to bother anyone. I kind of just want the next con to come already so I can forget about it after and then go back to being a recluse. Then be bitter that I'm lonely. Then fucking wring myself through this eternally vicious cycle.

I can't put him to sleep with pills (or even the gummy pills) but I could absolutely give him a tea version. Thanks anon! So far "sleepytime tea" hasn't been doing shit for him.


I posted that at 4 in the morning out of desperation. I turn into a HUGE CUNT when I'm tired. when 5 am rolled around, he had a talk with me trying to talk to me about my "sleepy attitude problem" and how instead of going to bed I should learn to fix it. needless to say I was fucking pissed, it was 5 in the goddamn morning and he was trying to walk me through changing my attitude rather than let me get some fucking sleep.

If I go to bed on time I never turn into cuntzilla so I hope him getting some sleep on time with the help of some tea and sticking to a schedule for shows will help both of us out.

I often overthink things like 'what of there would be a fire and I lose everything I own' and wonder if I'm too materialistic. I keep everything people once gave to me, like cards, plushies, sewing supplies. I also own clothes that are rare and old metal trinkets. My room isn't messy but I have so many things, but if I sell anything I might need it later on for a cosplay or something.

I ..feel things really deeply for someone.
She and I have hardly talked, though I've tried.

Her determination, her fire, everything about her just..glows with a sort of radiance that burned my everything so hard I just want to think about what it's close to someone, getting the chance to be that warm again. I've never just thought about someone in so long and just let out a deep dreamy longing sigh just knowing they exist.

They're currently taken. And me? I'm currently a little overweight. I have a good career, some cosplay skills. I'm..okay looking. But i'll fix that. I'm going to put myself through hell. Whatever it takes to get my body to a point where it's shown off.

I'm learning a song from a game we both like to sing to her because I think she'll be at a Karaoke i'm going to soon. Just for a little bit, I want her to look at me.

Then, when i'm done with eveyrthing i'm putting myself through to become a better person for her, at the end...I'm just going to thank her.

I don't want to be that guy..but I feel like it's inevitable. I don't want to put you in an uncomfortable situation where you have to turn me down, so I'm not going to push too hard at all. I don't want to come out of nowhere and just say "I love you", because you don't know me, and I doubt you ever will.

So i'm going to change everything about me for a chance to get close to you. And i'll get shot down. Oh, I know I would. We're not that close. You're in a relationship...I don't know what that status is, but that doesn't really mean much to me.

I'll fight for the chance to get a few minutes to show you that just the thought of being close to you is enough to change my entire life.

After that moment, i'm not sure what you'll do. You'll probably ignore me, unfriend me, or just wtf at me. I'm not going to press or beg. I'll lower my head, and walk. I'll break.

Then I'll hope from there that someone can feel the same way about me, that I feel for you.

Hm. If you're serious, I guess I would say that anything which causes you to positively change your life can be a positive, but just be careful not to make her uncomfortable or to give yourself a bad reputation in the process. If you work out and better yourself and let a few months pass, you might find that you don't care much about this girl at all anymore, and regret doing things like singing to her. Maybe it's better to wait a while and see? If she's in a relationship anyway, it's not like your chances will get any worse than they are.

Exactly. I don't think anything could come of me singing to her. She wouldn't know that's what i'm doing, and it's not like i'm going to mention it until I have a better myself to give to her, and maybe even then..

I mean, i'll have to make her uncomfortable a little bit at one point, but it'll just be a small thing before she wtf's or blocks me. I don't think there's much to lose. I..haven't ever felt like this before, and i've actually been in a lot of relationships.

I don't want to bother her, but there IS a small line I have to cross for just a moment to tell her how I feel. There's no more point in pressing in after that. Nobody knows about this but us, /cgl/.

The last thing I want to do is inconvenience someone who I want to be next to so badly. I'm not going to terrorize her, stalk her..(..well, I guess maybe a little facebook stalking just so I can get to see her every now and then....and keep myself motivated. )

Hell, i'll even pop in these feels threads every now and then to let you guys know if anything changes.

Well, I have maybe a year until i'm in the perfect shape that I want to be in. Mostly girls have just used me for my money when we've dated and then broke up with me when they're done or cheated on me. Maybe i'll get the chance to talk to her more and get closer.

I mean, it is kinda creepy I guess, but ..that's why i'm staying as far away as I can and i'm only going to interact once, just..very carefully. Not really saying I love her in that moment, but that I consider her to be something so inspiring it's inspired me to change myself, entirely, even without the chance to barely talk to her.

..just a short, tiny little thing. It won't inconvenience much. She can then kick me to the side and I can move on. I don't really have any self esteem, and most of the time wouldn't even consider uttering something like this to a girl because i'm a worthless person. So it'll just be a short little thing, not too in depth. Maybe a paragraph. But I have a lot of work to do on myself, until then.

It's not my intention to spook you at all, but I recently competed for the first time with my other half (having done it solo for some time) and it went horribly. Everything that could have done wrong DID. But he honestly didn't seem to mind and he isn't put off, and I doubt your friend will be.
If it goes tits up then at least future attempts are always going to be a million times better than your first together, so don't be afraid of failure if it comes your way, embrace it and use it to improve.

Honest question. I have to be completely honest, I have zero social skills.

When you're talking to people and you ask about stuff (like say you're at a con, you talk to someone and ask about their interests or cosplays) and they never ask you things in return, do you just... give up?

Like... conversations are a back and forth are they not? Say you ask too much and you only get responses and they don't ask you stuff in return, or they never even initiate conversation with you then what's the point? Wouldn't you just be bothering them? Is it acceptable to talk about yourself anyway? Like "hey you're into this series, right? me too, my favorite part is...", like that. When does it ever come across as unwarranted?

This may sound completely tactless but I've just never had anyone come up to me and actually want to talk to me. I have no idea what that's like so I want to understand what it'd be like on the other side.

You can definitely talk about yourself during conversations like in your example, absolutely. If the conversation feels one sided the other person might not be interested in socializing at that moment, and in that case you can just say something like "Well nice talking to you, have fun!" and walk away.
Don't give up though, socializing can be like that sometimes and you won't make a friend out of every single person you talk to, but you will eventually.

Cut that bitch up, anon!

I know those feels, too. For about two years I was super passionate about a certain subject in part because I was so enchanted by (and had a pretty big crush on) the professor/supervisor. I basically dedicated my life to that subject and felt like it was my calling. Then when that professor was called away and I got a different supervisor I found out that the subject alone wasn't enough for me, what motivated me most was my desire to impress that one dude. I ended up buckling under the pressure and competitive nature of the field and had to take a few months off for my mental health. I managed to pick it back up later and finish my degree but now I'm wondering what to do with it since I'll likely never again have that kind of intense (albeit unhealthy and unsustainable) motivation and instead feel kind of apathetic to everything.

Would it be possible to add more microbiology stuff to your programme and see how you like it without jumping ship completely? I'm not sure what you're doing but it might be good to talk about this with a counsillor or programme coordinator or someone like that at your organisation. You won't be the first or the last person with this issue, it happens al the time.

Like... I acknowledge and perfectly understand that things will not go off without a hitch so perfectly. I sometimes wonder how it even happens. Like these things take time. I also acknowledge and perfectly understand that not everyone is going to like me and that sometimes I will fail to befriend people.

I used to think like this. You're assuming other people are worth more than you. This board is full of lolitas ( the female equivalent of fedoras) that are legitimately mad that people like them too much.

Modern feminism and the like has led people to think that even talking to other people is a social privelege. Nobody owes ethem any more not being talked to any more than you're owed to not get junk mail.

Some people not gonna like you. They can deal with it. Some people gonna like you. You miss 100% of the shots you don't take, as our lord Gretzky says.

Not being talked to isn't a human right. Just toss the conversation when you feel it's a dead end. Ask questions, and then ask why, and how. It makes it easier to talk about one thing for longer.

If after two or three of those chains you don't have a common topic, break, and move on. This is your chance to fucking shine, and not have to deal with talking about sportsball. Conventions are a fucking privelege. You waste that, it's on you, buddy.

Men are a much more mixed bag and some age terrible (due to balding). Usually around 35 men are on the decline but that can easily go to 40.

Men become more desirable as they age due to more prospects. Car, house, high wage. They have more to bring to the table than just looks. Even then, their looks don't instantly go to shit, as men are are 'allowed' a more rough appearance for attractiveness. It's pretty unfair but that's how it is.

The reason Asians appear to age better is ebcause their culture values a healthy diet and, even more importantly, they stay the fuck out of the sun and wear sunscreen religiously. This has never caught on in the West. So many people think I'm crazy for wearing sunscreen on a daily basis, it's like "you barely go outside! you work inside!" or "but you're not going to the beach or a park lol!" and while it doesn't happen as often as it used to whites will shame other whites for being "too pale" and say they need a tan.

It's almost like your average Western girl doesn't care that all that tanning and sun exposure is gonna make her age like sour milk.

>> No.9510751 [DELETED] 

>>9510748
Adding to my reply, Asians also value skincare more than Western girls for the most part. They start anti-ageing skincare regimens early while white girls wait until it's too late and they already have the wrinkles they could have worked on preventing.

It's not that Asians age better, genetics only partly comes into play. It's mostly the lifestyle and sun loving culture of the West that makes white girls age like shit.

I've been noticing that as I get older, my relationships with friends from the past fall apart. It's not because we don't still want to be friends, but neither of us are able to connect after a certain point. We're literally living different lives. Of course I'm still interested in what they've been doing, and vice versa. But it's hard for me to share my life with them because I know they just wouldn't understand it. There is a huge disconnect and I feel alone because they have been my friends for over a decade.

But then on the other hand, I have met people in the lolita community, that share similar lives/interests/goals, and are making the effort to be friends. I feel bad that I'm unable to devote any time to my old friends, so I feel reluctant to give any of myself to new friends.

Sometimes I think I sabotage my own friendships because I just can't let people in.

An example off the top of my head: A few years ago there was a guy on my friend list who would leave comments on my pics about how I should absolutely wear pic related with my coords, and whenever I shared lolita-related content on my page he would comment about how "hot" it was.

IRL experiences tend to be more complicated, especially if they're con creeps. It's not usually a quick interaction and then I walk away feeling gross...it's people who try to chat me up for a bit, then end up finding all of my social media and hounding me for dates/nudes/whatever for months afterwards.

I have bought raw meat to my dog, gone to a event in a farmer's market, stable and to a tractor event in lolita. I didn't let the meat, horses or pony poop touch my lolita though.

I started to exercise this year and while I haven't really lost any weight I have lost few cm's from my waist and I'm already in a lot better shape. Makes me less sad of my arms not fitting in some of my pieces. I have managed to eat a lot healthier and first time in years I actually enjoy exercising. I have a foot injury though and since I started the foot has been hurting more and my hands shake a lot more which makes me fear they are related and I will make it worse or something.

Met a creep at a con who seemed normal at first but gradually got creepier as the con went on. I was cosplaying a Touhou character and he asked me if I was "wearing bloomers or panties". I laughed it off but then he asked my 12 year old sister the same thing later on. Also brought up shit like con orgies and hentai in front of my little sister too. What really solidified the creepiness was that later on someone in a facebook group i was in said they caught the same kid trying to take upskirt pictures. Just be careful and listen to your gut if you are feeling creeper vibes from people anon.

All I want is some poc girls to cosplay with. I love my white cosplay friends, but sometimes it hard to explain why certain cosplay/makeup trends don't look right on me.
