Why did there used to be substyles of lolita based on different styles (punk, hime gyaru, deco) but not anymore? Those feel outdated but there aren't new ones to replace them,like the only one I can think of is steam lolita but it isn't popular and many people don't even know it exists.

Steam lolita isn't even new, I started lurking egl in 2011 and it existed then

>> No.9666168

There were more people interested in other subcultures, I think. Right now all of them are in decline. Larme is too much normie to make any major difference and steampunks are too much of douches to make steam lolita look good. If there will be a next big trend, there will be also a lolita substyle of it.

>> No.9666169

Because now whenever people mixlolita with other styles in mind like larme or menhera, everyone just calls it a themed coord

>> No.9666171

Nobody ever says themed in my comm, I've only seen it on cgl and I think it's mostly newfags (americans) who aren't learning lolita lingo and also say things like it's blue instead of sax.

Anon probably said it because "amercifags so stupid, right", but I notice that if english is your native language, you tend to use different words for things, because they seem right. If your native language is something else, you learn vocabulary for lolita and use it as it was intended to.

>> No.9666254

Probably because it is more like "adding things of another style" now instead of the main piece itself being made to look like a different style? Last "new" substyle I remember was Mori/Natural Lolita, that even got a whole brand delicated to it (MiELette Tautou) but most would lump that in with classic.

i can see this. Like outfit instead of coord, blue vs sax, even burgundy vs wine and things like that. Because end of day, the Japanese used english words for these concepts, but they used... I don't want to say the 'wrong' ones, because it's not 'wrong' in any sense, but they used ones that aren't conventional, so it seems strange for a native English speaker to use them until they get used to it.

Listen, stupid weebs will buy any overpriced garbage at a con if it's ~japanese~

Take it to a con and make money. I've seen stupid weebs paying $100+ for a $20 bodyline skirt at a con. I've had stall owners try to sell me overpriced replicas, telling me, "Oh, look, you're wearing AP, it's AP!!!!!!" and charging $200+ for ass tier replicas.

If you keep your price right around $100 you shouldn't have a problem, I assume it's not worth a lot more than that if you're considering giving it away.

I'll speak as a guy on this. Even though zettai ryouiki is a thing (or a fetish), that shouldn't be a big deal. To put it into perspective, Wikipedia says foot fetishism "the most common form of sexual fetishism for otherwise non-sexual objects or body parts," but you don't see people going crazy over sandals.
I can understand this point if you're referring to those lace thigh highs with a garter belt. Those are pretty sexual. But regular thigh high socks...? Nah.
I've seen girls wearing those. Lots of guys seem to go nuts over yoga pants in general though.
Yeah. It makes no logical sense.
With those red tartan skirts though, those are a hallmark of the "naughty schoolgirl" image. But being harassed over knee-length ones is mind boggling.

I thought the general idea and the plot twist were good.

which more or less means "we had so many requests for this that we exceeded our allotment for reservations and have completely sold out" so at least according to them it was popular and actually sold. But it just doesn't make sense to not make more if you had so many people willing to fork cash over for it.
There is mention of another possible re-release (re-re-re-release?) of Rabbit Letter in the email so they might just run another batch later on. We will see. I'm the meantime, I'm with >>9667176. I'm salty.
Also, I know the questionnaire wasn't a guarantee for a spot, but then it seems like a rather pointless questionnaire. Just a reservation by another name...

Hello Mairin! Linda's pieces are all custom designed, patterned and tailored to the customer, use high quality textiles, handmade by the designer in extremely small runs or OOAK unlike factory-produced Japanese brands, and unlike some people, she always takes the time to make sure the shoulder straps are attached symmetrically. As someone who's supposed to be obsessed with ~ couture ~ you should know that these are all things that add to the final price. And even then her pieces cost less than even simpler factory-made pieces from many other designers.

My take is when lolita was new, there weren't so many, and it was the kind of terminology people saw in the GLB etc.
As time went on, and new fashions arose and got mixed with lolita, it because really ridiculous to have substyles for every new thing, and it was mostly newbies and itas trying to pitch stuff like "bittersweet" and other "new" substyles so it probably got tainted somewhat from that.

The pictures in the left in that image are definitely an exaggeration, but I’ve worked with someone who came to work in dresses like pic related on a daily basis and nobody batted an eye, while I was reprimanded for “unprofessional dress” for wearing over-the-knee socks with knee-length skirts. You couldn’t even see the gap unless you were staring at my legs while I was walking or in the process of sitting down, but still I was the one being “unnecessarily provocative”.

You’re absolutely right that anything can be a fetish and many men will whistle at women regardless of what we’re wearing, but the west does have a weird thing about covered up skin being somehow more sexual than exposed skin. I wear mostly classic lolita with covered arms, neck etc. and it’s ridiculous how many comments I get suggesting I must be a sexual deviant or “beast in the sack” despite being all covered up. I never get these comments when I’m out in jeans or normie sundresses.

Because at the time, all those styles were still active and being worn. Deco lolita was big when decora was gaining traction again, which then blended into fairy kei, which led to fairy kei crossing over with lolita. Hime gyaru was being when lolita started to cross over with it, Angelic Pretty was even featured in Ageha a few times.

You do see it now, just more subtle since there really hasn't been another big rival jfashion to lolita in awhile. There is crossover in trends from Larme, Mori, and Menhera.

How did you order? You should have been able to choose the shipping method if you used their shopping cart.
Anyway, if the item you ordered costs more than 6,000 yen then Japonica will have to send it via EMS for the insurance, not sure how the lower price declaration works because I've never used it but I imagine you'll only be insured for the amount declared which is a risk. And if they ask you to confirm anything then yes, you need to reply to the email you received.

Is it customary to message a seller before clicking buy on LaceMarket? I don’t have much feedback yet so I feel like this would be the polite thing to do, but at the same time I’m a socially awkward mess who’d prefer to just click a few buttons and not interact more than necessary.

I joined last year and messaged every seller before I bought an item just out of common courtesy. Now that I have feedback, I still message them after I've bought the item to be polite. So far 100% of them had a smooth transaction and we mutually benefitted from it. It might be a little awkward but it's much better than how awkward it would be if they were uncomfortable making the sale without knowing they're interacting with a human first.

>> No.9668453

I never message before 'buying' unless I have a question about something. But I ALWAYS message right away after buying just to let them know I'm ready to pay and will do so after getting the invoice. I dislike when sellers take forever to start the process, or are very non-responsive, so I feel I should be the same as I personally like dealing with. I don't have a lot of feedback either, and other than my first purchase, I've never had a problem with it.

Feedback system is pretty good protection, I've done several trades through LM. You just need two people with good feedback so that you can trust each other, it doesn't matter who mails first because if the other doesn't send the dress, you just report them as a scammer and get them banned

She's not making that much money off of it. Its just there to inflate her ego i suppose.

>> No.9669244


Would you really leave up an embarrassing video of yourself, though? Does it really make sense to go crying to your friend that you're (apparently) embarassed and being doxxed, but still leave the cause of the doxxing up for everyone to witness your stupidity? Every new person will be able to google your name and learn firsthand from the video exactly how stupid you are even before they meet you, that's the rep she's built for herself with that video. Do you really think she left it up "to inflate her ego" when that video is apparently the reason the internet seems to hate her? On her own channel, that's under her full control, she's really going to say she's embarassed of that one video while at the same time inviting people to watch it and then hate on her. Does that make sense to you, if not for the ad dollars?

As long as the video remains up, I'm taking that as proof that she's just after the ad dollars. If she's that embarassed I just can't see any other reason she doesn't take it down.

The fact that she's not making "that much money" off it is just the result, actually it's more likely she'll want to leave it up so she can piss off more people in the future and get more money.

Hi, so I'm the girl who made the post about MD. I want to kind of clear the air so that hopefully this whole thing can be over, mostly for her sake. When I wrote my post I will admit that it was fueled by anger, and I really just wanted to rant about what had happened because it bothered me for a while. People are right when they say I looked up to her, and it admittedly hurt my feelings to get blocked over something as trivial as wearing a similar outfit. After writing everything out, it did help. It was cathartic in a way. MD contacted me after it was posted here, and while I do feel like she came across as a bit rude to me, I can't really blame her, I guess. I think about how I'd feel if something similar happened, and I'd likely be upset and hurt too. The thing that bothers me the most about the aftermath of that post is that other people wanted to throw so much shit around. I don't think people were incredibly mean to me per se, but apparently people sent MD messages telling her to kill herself, calling her names, and even here on cgl someone made a really rude statement about her race. I think that's uncalled for, especially if people were doing it on my behalf. Truthfully, I'm over what happened now. I think writing the post helped with that, but I didn't expect it to blow up as much as it did. I will probably delete the post at some point just because I do feel bad. I think stupid things occurred on both sides, and I know that she was really ready for it to end and so am I. So, it's fine if you are still angry at me or her or whatever. But at the very least I think it'd be cool to not send cruel messages like the ones that were sent to her before.

>> No.9669529

Also, before anyone makes this accusation. I'm not writing this so I don't have to provide proof of what was said in our messages. I honestly wouldn't feel okay with doing that at this point now because I've moved past the point of wanted to be an asshole about it. It came across as clear to me that she wouldn't appreciate that, and I can respect that. I hope this at least clears up a little bit, and I really am sorry if the whole thing got taken too far.

>> No.9669530

I did, but she claimed she didn't want drama. Which made no sense because her initial post had already created drama, much like she knew it would. There was no way that girl didn't know a negative post about a very popular lolita wouldn't start drama. After she declined I let it go because I'm not that desperate for drama. If she genuinely wanted to warn people to be wary of MD then she should have posted the actual caps that proved MD was being a bitch. That would have had an effect on MD's popularity/credibility.

There's something about the Lady of Shallott, locked away in the tower, who can't interact with other humans, and basically embarks on a mission of self-destruction the one time she tries to actually get closer to another human being, that seems rather poetic and fits the weirdness and isolation of lolita.

I just can't figure out if they only used the same imagery for Rapunzel because there's a tower in both stories, or maybe there's some other connection with both girls being locked in their towers.

I understand what being anonymous means. Most of this board doesn't and is under the impression they know who is posting. They do not.

I probably should have said nayrt because I definitely agree with that part so my bad!
But in my comm its pretty taboo to admit going to browsing here. Quite a few lolitas have made generalizing hateful comments about /cgl/ and the girls who browse here. It's not banned in my comm, but I recall other anons stating it was in their comms and there was a lot of drama as a result of the witch hunts that started to enforce the rule.
Now, I did know a girl who actively talked about going on /cgl/ and self posted and it was actually her. She isn't very welcomed anymore by most.

It's entirely possible to know who's posting. I had a girl who literally went around bragging to our mutual friends that she posted about me, and saying almost word for word what the posts had said.

Thank you, that was my point. I know that the chance is high it’s some troll but the anon I was replying to made it seem like it’s extremely unlikely that the person in the picture wil be in the thread, when for the people I know, it’s pretty dang likely. Many of them will be at meets complaining about something posted here the day before or sometimes even that same morning.

Counting on my fingers the number of people who’ve either talked about cgl at meets, or posted very identifiable things in for instance the mail thread, at least 17. Those are just the ones I talk to often, it’s very likely there are more. All of our mods also post here. And least one of the more dramatic members likes to complain about cgl on her FB and invite clueless white knights to spam the thread with “omg jelly hater!!!” comments.

I agree that “hi X” is annoying and that it’s usually wrong, but sometimes it’s obvious to see who’s posting to anyone who knows that person. Of course there’s no way to prove it, but sometimes I wish there was, just to out annoying selfposters and samefags.

It is common (and easy!) to wear gothic and classic to normie situations. It is very easy to dress down black dresses and skirts.

Is it possible to do it as well with sweet? Very colorful prints, or plain pastels?
I find it very hard, but I want to do it. For example, I have a pink coat, but it looks terrible with black tights and boots, or a grey scarf.
Bright colored tights for some reason are considered outrageous where I live, is so strange.

It was weird in that I wasn't sure whether the creators wanted it to be serious or a bit silly (take coord shots and you will die? A commentary on pride and vanity being the ultimate downfall? What message were they going for?).

Even though I know people that go here, I still don't assume a post is theirs unless ya know, it's something like the insta thread where you can see it's them posting and they don't post anything other than a plug or ask for crit.

I'm also not talking about shit like the mail thread or the dream dress thread where it's more unlikely that the person posting is defending themselves. I'm talking about CoF and the ita thread. That's where the most claims happen.

>sometimes it’s obvious to see who’s posting to anyone who knows that person.
Sure. Like I said earlier, yeah, lolitas post here. You might even know them. Fuck, I know some.

Just because you know someone is posting - does that make it legit to start posting claims? Do you come here and go, "oh that's so and so I know them" - what if it's not them? Why even take the chance?

Maybe your comm doesn’t accept it but mine does. Both by having convos like “did you see this on cgl” and talking about things only posted here without saying it’s from here. The mods of my comm know and have been here before, same with the “well known” local people. There are also the times where you recognize the self post or typing style of a friend.

It’s very interesting that there is such a backlash now when back during the Kate stuff everyone was fine believing she self posted. Very different feel.,

the recipient is being really rude in fact, its a cute dress and a fairly polite yet misguided gesture - seller wants to sell her shit, knows someone who in her mind thinks will like it and lets her know? its kind of rude if they're not even friends, but either way the recipient describing the situation like shes a better person than the seller is much worse.

the fade transition at 1:00 irked me because it was out of place compared to the other cuts. there are other, more skillful ways to show the passing of time, if that was the aim (exception are the gratuitous 'aftermath' fades post-climax. they're great!).
I like the music a lot! I wish the previous victims looked more afraid when things started to get dark. in such a short piece you gotta amp up the risk and the feeling so we feel the danger as well.
there's also a little disconnect when the main girl is filming herself...would have been nice to depart and have her review what she recorded, us seeing it through her eyes, maybe have little danger cues in the background of her playback. then, after being bored of seeing how she looks on the old cam, she could return to where she left on in the other footage.

what was absolutely fantastic were the slow, delicious shots of the victims's coord elements. it appealed to my purse-lust for sure, and just really works with the monster's motivations. brilliant.
I am overall into this though. I'd love to see more lolita films--more!

What I liked:
>the curtain of film(!)
>choice of girls+coords
>3:08 that dark ominous center mannequin
>long, languid shots of the desired coords
>that colored lighting, the sounds
>visual relation between life expectancy&film remaining

what needs work:
>amateur opening action (have it start with her already in motion toward the door. we see her standing there for an awkward split second)
>length (too short, some stuff leading to climax happens too quick)
>amp up acting quality to amp up viewer empathy (scare me dawg)
>don't cut corners telling time/really demonstrate the main's boredom + the time wasting while she waits
