Doing cosplay at conventions is the only time I feel like myself, everything else is just a shadow of the world to support that. I'm unwell but at least I have something I live for I think.

How do you cope with the time between conventions besides diving into as much anime as possible and working on cosplay?

>My mom is the sweetest lady but will always try to take over when I ask for help
>If I tell her that it's fine and I can do it myself and I just wanted her to tell me or show me something, she can get grumpy
>We've ended up in multiple screaming matches because she either didn't understand what I really wanted or she took over and I resorted to trying to assist her with MY project and accidentally fucked it up cause I have no idea what I'm doing because she always takes over instead of just telling me "do x and y".

I really love my mom and I wish sewing could be a way to bond but instead it just makes us scream at each other. I'm already permanently stressed and this just takes all of the fun out of it.

Bust size has increased two inches over the past year, waist 3 inches, pain in the assignment for fitting into my blouses and skirts. Buy scales, realise I am a stone heavier than I thought. Cut out takeaway and walk more, skip dessert and eat more veggies.
3 weeks later, weigh myself again to see if I have made any progress. I'm now back to my goal weight but my bust and waist are no smaller?!

I had a really strange dream last night that I was at a panel at a convention, and the presenter was an ita wearing a mint honeycake special set. (Unstyled and messy hair, no petti, no legwear)
She was doing stupid that could ruin the dress, and I yelled "BITCH WHAT ARE YOU DOING, THATS HONEYCAKE!"
Which made a couple of people in the crowd laugh.
But the girl just sunnily replied "its okay! Its just a replica!"
Which made several people boo her.
And then the dream changed.

I met this girl at a convention while I was drunk shortly after breaking up with my most recent ex.

We almost had a one night stand but our rooms both had people in them, so we exchanged contact info and that was it for the time being, we were both cosplaying from the same series.

It's been about 5 months since then, we follow each other on tumblr and talk sometimes, she reblogs tons of stuff I love and we're into a lot of the same shit and she's really cute.

But I barely know her and we live several states away from each other during the school year and I don't do long distance.

Your dreams reveal truths about you through your subconscious. Think about it for a second. Your mind only knows what you know and it reaches conclusions that you don't realize yourself, when you sleep your mind takes all these assets from what it knows about everything including you and your actions. It then molds and shapes your dreams that you mostly just watch (unless you are able to lucid dream and control what happens).

So what you saw was your manifestation of an inner truth about yourself.

I am a very lucid dreamer, Ive been that way for years. It's to the point I can flat out control what's going on. (Though Ill wake up with a splitting headache if I do so.)
I also have dreams about things that I saw/did during the day.

No, it isn't you in it's truest self or something. It's your subconscious, but not a literally true you or anything. It's just your head processing about stuff you think about. Your mind combines everything and does weird stuff with it to make it one story/image. The more diverse things your head has to process, the more weird dreams may get.

people at larger cons aren't weebs. Even the cosplayers walking around are usually just normal people or wannabe instagram models hoping people take their pics.

I've had too many awkward conversations where a cosplayer has never even seen the show.

There's also the recent "anti-creep" campaign that people have been doing at cons to try to push out "weird" people, which usually means well-meaning, but awkward weebs.

cons have been taken over by average, normal people. They're no longer about awkward weebs going to meet other people like them. They're about money, selling waifu merch, and having the most popular slutty waifu cosplay so people take pics with you and share and follow you on instagram.

I never claimed to be a psyche. What's with this deep meaning fluff? The way you act in your dream is how you would act normally, this is so that you don't notice you're dreaming and it helps keep you in a state of sleep. Your mind doesn't just randomly make stuff up. It pulls from factual information that you've seen or experienced.

he didn't take a lot of money. it was about $40 dollars and the payment was suppose to be $50, but i'm gonna have to wait until next month to get some more cash. luckily my birthday is next week so i'm hoping i can recover those $40 with some birthday cash and try and get my dream dress anyways even if he doesn't pay me back, but damn i would also like to work things out with my bf too. it isn't the first time this happens and he typically comes back but how do i know for sure that he will come back on future occasions? he really doesn't know how to handle stress well and it kinda hurts everytime he does this.

It sounds like he might be a little self-absorbed, since you probably let him talk about his interests all he wants. A lot of guys really devalue lolita as an interest, even if they're into something similar, because lolita is percieved as very feminine and feminine things are frequently considered valueless.

Its more cringey, and common, to have weeb males then females. And the females that are weeb are accepted by everyone as long as they follow the don't be fat rule.

this is probably a joke, but a lot of girls on here expect a lot from guys. You're probably not gonna find a guy in his early to mid 20s who makes 6 figures.

I've always been curious about that. Lolita seems like such a weeab magnet (which it is) but most girls who wear lolita are pretty normal, like you said a lot of us can wear lolita but then just change into jeans and a tshirt.

But if he dislikes it, you should respect that too. My BF thinks it looks nice enough, but it's overpriced to him and he dislikes it if I talk about it all the time. So I just talk with people in my com, or on places like Rufflechat and here. When I have something really special, he shows interest just because I like it so such and he loves seeing me happy. Same for his interest that don't do anything for me. Even when lolita is important, it shouldn't be the only thing in your life after all. Share the most special, so he can enjoy you being really happy and get motivation to listen out of that without hearing so much he gets fed up about it, and take the rest of the talk to someone else.

>> No.9572149

Probably because a lot of lolita see nothing special in weeb stuff? I don't see anime any different than a western played series. I watched a few, but I don't see it as super special or anything. I'm not into manga at all. I'm a software engineer, and the most interesting about Japan are Android robotics to me (I'm actually studying in hope to program their artificial intelligence, which would probably make me move to Japan so I'm following their culture and such at the moment), but other than their electronics, no huge fan op Japanese stuff next to my dresses (although I find some cultural stuff like how they always innovate and are working on being most efficient interesting). I'm a huge fan of black metal and go to underground events for that, and I love older RPG games, and am somewhat active in the TES modding community. Generally, most IT nerds find I'm more nerdy than them, in the stereotype nerd way, not the "cool nerd/geek guy" way.

I think many lolitas aren't dating weebs because they aren't weebs themselves and don't share interests.

By it's original definition, weeb/otaku isn't positive, going way to far into a fandom, like an obsession. Otherwise, it's not a weeb/otaku to me. It's a fan of anime/manga/cosplay/whatever. It's still used like that in Japan. Calling yourself a weeb is defiantly a thing too, because apparently you don't realise it's a negative word (and generally, people that don't realise it don't do so because they are acting like Japan is heaven, and actually don't know shit about it). It's like continuously calling yourself names and be proud on it. Kinda stupid to do.

Most weeb lolita's don't understand lolita and wear cheap, horrible dresses. Can't find find it back, but there was this music group that was "inspired by Japanese music" and based on the concept of two butlers and one girl who was dressed in a horrible ita dress which nicely showed why "weeb lolita", which are generally put under "cosplay lolita". There where photo's in the ita thread some threads back.

It get's more easy when you grow up an realise it's not love. True love doesn't come with someone else every two weeks. Sounds like teenager behaviour to me. But of course, like all this teenager behaviour caused by hormonal changes, "no one will understand you" when they tell you this. Once you're done with puberty, it should go away. Just need to grow up, and try not to do stupid things you regret.

If you're an adult, get a psychiatrist. It's not normal after puberty. In that case, it would actually be a sign of mental issues.

Depends who you associate yourself with. I follow several people who have conversations with me daily. The whole insta story is a good way of breaking the ice with someone who seems cool, like if they post about some anime you like you can message them and say that you like that show too or some shit.

Of course there are some jerks, but that's how it is everywhere in the world. I feel like for cosplay, insta is really where it's at right now.

That....isn't an emotionally healthy relationship. It really sounds like he's using you. It's easier to say from the outside, but I think you might want to seriously consider leaving. Also "borrowing" money for cards is literally the stupidest thing I have heard: it isn't like he couldn't buy cards at literally any other point in time. He needs to find his own hobbies. Freeloader.
I mean, girls will all swoon over a passingly handsome man. Have you seen the thirst male oujis get? A lot of (weeb) guys just don't appreciate how much effort/grooming it takes to look decent.
That and a lot of weeb stuff directed towards guys is creepily sexual. It's like fujoshits; the difference being fujoshits date each other.

I wanted to try cosplaying, but then I remembered I'm short, brown, and a boy so I pretty much don't fit any character.

I learned about mori kei on here and it looked so comfy so I wanted to try switching up my wardrobe. But I don't think it would look good on me, so I spent my money on steam sales instead.

>birthday anon who's hours got cut and had to use birthday taobao dress money savings for rent from two threads ago

Sort of a feels and/or help question:
Does anyone know any way besides camming or sexytime stuff that I can make some money online to supplement my income? My hours got cut at work, but I live in a place with no public transport and share a car, so I wouldn't be able to get a second job IRL. No one ended up helping me get the dresses I was looking at, and I don't want to take advantage of anyone or be accused of that. I don't mind working for the extra money. I can do pixel art and animations pretty well, as well as draw, metalwork, teach beginners how to sew, etc.
I just really need a win right now, since my grandpa (who was like my dad, especially since I'm an only grandchild), passed away on Friday right before my bday (thankfully, I'd had an amazing last day with him--not knowing he was going to pass though he had been growing weaker for the last few years--we had played board games all day and watched baseball and relaxed peacefully and chatted--I'm devastated, but will be able to find peace knowing how peaceful and happy he was when he passed in his sleep.). It's why I didn't keep talking to everyone after my first two replies--I had gone over to visit and wanted to hang out with my grandparents and give them my full attention that day.

Even if you don't know of a place to make extra money, a virtual hug or something or pic of something cute would help. I'm barely holding it together right now, and I'm about to have to go teach children for 8 hours. My bday was yesterday and things kind of suck right now.

You should probably check out r/beermoney but a lot of that can be scams, so take caution.

Here's everything I've done/do to make cash online

Write a blog, write articles for a website about something you know well, write copy, transcribe, translate. Lots of options out there, look for freelance websites.

Pixel arts are good, drawing is too. If you're good you can make BANK off adoptables, but either way art and commissions online can bring in a fair amount of money.

>user testing
Usability testing

I didn't enjoy this very much so I didn't make that much money. Go figure

Teach English to foreigners, or teach whatever you want. I know you already teach but tutoring adults could be a nice change of pace.

My feels are that lately I feel like shit if I see my friends go out with each other (and no invite for me) or literally making plans in the same chat and still not throwing an invite my way. I certainly don't want to be the "TFTI" person so I don't say anything. I've invited people out to dinner/lunch/hangout at their leisure (I work from home so they have more restrictive schedules) and they're always really enthusiastic about "sure I'll let you know!" But I never get a follow up.

No one's obligated to invite me to anything and I did my best to pretend not to see all the "out here with the squad" posts on FB and IG. I logged out of FB a while ago and I no longer post on IG in an effort to see less of that.

Maybe I just need new friends.

On a side note I can feel the moodiness and depression eating away at my will to do things. Don't know if my pet passing away and my last living grandparent (who I was pretty close to) passing away last month adds to it.

I have an unending, unyielding crush on someone. The thought of her from day to day gives me life and energy. She's gorgeous, beauitful, exceptionally talented, passionate, and I feel like we get along well.

The only thing is, i'm in a relationship with someone who has cheated on me multiple times. If I abandon her, she financially depends on me, and moved from seveal states away to be with me. I will destroy her life.

I'm only so cool of a person. Thi s is one of those ultra-rare times when I click with someone. I don' t know if they feel the same about me.

I could just settle down and be with the person I am right now and that would be that.

But *she* is all I think about. I don't think she really is interested. We talked once for many hours, and it made me *sooooo* happy.

But I don't want to push my luck again. I tried talking a little bit today and it didn't seem to go anywhere. That means I get to back off forever it seems and quietly admire her.

I'm trying to get stronger, challenging myself to make more money and get fitter. Even worse though, she's close with someone who i'd consider a really cool person and wouldn't want to cause drama.

I happen to have gotten out of a situation identical to your own minus the feelings for some other person. Listen, you are a good person for staying. I understand entirely that things are complicated when a break-up would lead to the other person being homeless. However, you have to end it. They will continue to hurt you. When it is all over, you realize they don't love you, they only love the life you give them. Their life won't be over. In fact, you'd be surprised. 6 months down the road you'll see them treating someone else the exact same way, mooching off whatever life gives them. There's honestly people out there who will take advantage until you cut them off, and they'll throw their responsibility in your face.

You can cut things off, and have the lady take her clothes and such with her so she's not stopping by everyday. I personally held on to my ex-partner's stuff for almost a year while they found a place to situate themselves. It's hard, but I got them out of there. Their life wasn't ruined. They were just upset until they found someone else to mooch from. You gotta' cut the ties man. You are being used for your apartment. Have they already been guilt tripping you?
