Real life relationships hardly make sense. My friend had the perfect guy who shares all her hobbies and she genuinely had a good time with around her all the time. Everyone assumed they were a couple because of how well hey got on and how often they we're together. It shocked everyone when she just out of the blue got together with some fat balding dude twice her age who had nothing in common with her. They're getting married next year. No, he isn't rich.

People like others for weird reasons.

Almost no guys to crush on and prominent oujis being the object of many girls crushes is a small part of it. Mainly though, lolita is a fashion focused on a type of female beauty and clothing which is actively unattractive to most men. This attracts more women who don't care about attracting men, leading to a higher number of lesbians and bisexuals in the community. Also, many straight girls will leave the community after less time for various reasons, like wanting to attract a boyfriend, having kids, or getting a new boyfriend and picking up his hobbies instead. It's not so much the number but the type of women who tend to join and stay in the community.

Why is ouji so hard to get into? I'm a dude and I want to start wearing ouji, but I'm having a hard time finding an online shop that is still open, ships to the US, and is affordable enough that I can get baby's first coord for under $300ish.

Are you a cosplayer? Does your natural hair not look good? It's okay to use a wig if you must but be careful when using cosplay wigs, they could bring your coord down.
Anyway, have you looked at the boystyle thread? >>9715254 plenty of resources right there in the OP, mind you that every brand listed there can also be found secondhand so you can find things cheaper.
Ouji isn't really hard, you just need to take the time to do your research, especially if you haven't done anything fashion-related before (i.e. you dress normie).

I personally do not do it, but there is various reasons to have to brush your teeth. Like anon mentioned, they are worried about tea stains, perfectly fine. Some people use invisalign (a form of braces) and have to brush their teeth after every meal.

Every human is different. Stop thinking you're superior just because you don't have to brush your teeth or feel the need to brush your teeth after you eat. You're not going to die. It's not like your wiping your toothbrush along the counters and mucking it up before brushing your teeth.

It's probably one of the most petty things I can think of picking on someone for, like how does that sound in your head? "EWww! She's brushing her teeth after she eats! That's SOOO GROSSS!"

I even stated that the comm member only found out because of the toothbrush/toothpaste in my hand. It's not like I'd brush my teeth and dribble foamy saliva right next to someone washing their hands.

They were in a white SUV and stopped in the left lane of the highway with no hazard lights on (apparently they'd skidded into a guard rail and that's why they were stopped.) It was snowing and I didn't see their white vehicle from far away. When I noticed that they were stopped I tried stopping, but braking didn't do shit because I hit a patch of black ice. I managed to slow down to like 10mph before I hit them though. And I couldn't swerve into a different lane because there was a semi truck in the right lane and hitting them would have been worse.

So I honestly don't know if it's my fault for hitting them, their fault for being stopped on the highway without their hazard lights on, or the weather's fault. My state has no-fault insurance so I don't know if it even matters.

I finally decided to do something about my life and stop dressing like some nerd in loose clothes and shirts.
I finally got courage to start clothing pretty, girly.
Yesterday I got a package with few casual lolita/jfash dresses, skirts, etc. As I'm on the tall side (5'10") none really hit my knees, but I didn't think much of it. Then I got to try on a one piece, more of a long blouse with mini skirt and long sleeves. It didn't fit me in the upper area, the sleeves were not only short, but also really tight, the chest was too small, and I don't even have big breasts.
My smile and happiness were gone. I took it off, I sat down. I never felt this awful in my life. I don't know what happened with me, but I grabbed a rope and tied it into a noose. I looked at it for a while and then promptly untied it. I'm scared of myself, I never behaved like this, I fear for my life. Why do I have to hate myself so much? What do I do?

>> No.9780288

Have you run into this problem before with western clothing? (I'm guessing yes since you're tall?) it sounds like you have a lot of insecurity which you previously pushed aside, rushed into jfashion , and got really upset once you found out something didn't fit
And it's fine if something doesn't fit you, there's nothing wrong with your body just the clothing is too small (you could always resell it try lacemarket/depop/etsy)
Next time take measurements of your body so you could prevent this!
Good luck!

You're almost ten inches taller than the average Japanese girl, no shit their clothing won't automatically fit you. Sell all the stuff that didn't fit so it doesn't lay around making you more miserable and use the money to try again. Memorize your actual body measurements and double-check everything before buying online instead of indiscriminately buying whatever you think is cute. A lot of us have to deal with this.

My boyfriend is fucking up cosplay for me. We're both into the hobby but he's in a lot deeper than me despite the 4+ years experience I have on him. It's gotten to a point where he's up in my business constantly, and not just with helpful comments; criticisms, nit picking, fabric choices, ebay links to wigs he thinks I need to get. If I have a different option in mind he makes a point to make me feel like I'm being the biggest idiot in the world by not listening to his opinion. It's like he think's he's the director of MY cosplay-- he plans the whole thing out and lectures me on how do every aspect. He takes my patterns away while I'm working on them and repatterns them himself. And honestly it would be one thing if he wanted to just dress me up like a doll or whatever but I'm doing all of the stitching and paying for all of the materials. Look even if I suck at it, just let me enjoy my shit.

Yes I've told him to fuck off several times and no I don't always buy/do what he suggests. His constant hovering and "suggestions" in the name of me "doing better" is seriously wearing me thin though, I don't spend all this time and energy just to be like "I sewed this together but that's it."

I don't think I need to touch on how stupid you are, but as someone taller than you here are my tips:

Long sleeves wont work for you, ever. Long sleeves are now 3/4 sleeves, and you meant for them to look like that, okay?
Underskirts, if you like the look.
Your legs will look super elegant in anything, don't be afraid to wear heels to elongate them even more.
To add onto this, flat shoes make big feet look like boats, heels are your friend anyways.
Stop being a lil bitch.
Look up dress lengths beforehand and see where things will fall on your body so you can avoid feeling like you're going to off yourself (whY???) whenever something doesn't fit.
As long as you're not obese you should look fine. If you're overweight, cut back on the junk so you can fit better, but that goes for all heights, really.
No one's going to kill you if you have a few inches of thigh on show. Sure some old-fashioned anons might piss their pants, but in reality who gives a fuck?
If you think your tits are a problem, wear a minimiser bra, or get shapewear. But ribs exist, and you can't change those, so accept that (please don't poke them in with a too-tight corset).
Be prepare to be disappointed when things don't look right, because it'll happen. But then make it work for you, there's always a way.
Also something I haven't tried yet, if you can: make dresses that don't fit into skirts. that way you can make it sit exactly on your waist.

Yeah anyways suck it up, stop crying, be like bear grylls and ADAPT.

Noose anon here. First of all, thank you everyone for both words of comfort, kindness, but also worry.

The reason of my discomfort was that I haven't ran into such problem before. I'm tall, but very slim. I have to admit I was always wearing loose clothes, and I was fitting in unisex S and M loose. When looking for pants, I had to either find XS or even XXS to not fall off me, but then also worry about length. Thankfully my mom is a seamstress, so she was always able to narrow bigger size for me and I never paid attention to my exact sizes.
Before buying my first lolita I was extensively measuring myself, but there's only as much as I can check myself. I had the biggest trouble with being sure of my shoulders, but I was pretty sure that I was S. Trying on the unfortunate dress was like hitting against the wall of reality. But I faced it again. I'm pretty sure I'm 35.5 cm, but the dress is mere 32.5 cm. I called my mom a while ago to help me make sure what size of clothing I should wear, and we both got to the conclusion that I'm size S.
I should note, I don't have ED.

I indeed have a lot of insecurities, but not fitting clothes in size wasn't one of them. I never really cared about looking good, or being pretty, and I'm already in my 20s. I'm yet to learn to use make-up beyond foundation. I finally can care for my hair. Sadly my breasts are small, and I think my face could be prettier, but that I will somehow get used to.

I'm proud of my height, and measurements. After being sad at first, I looked up fashion models' sizes. Turns out I'm not that much different, they also are tall with wide shoulders.
I didn't know that about flat shoes. I'm already learning to wear heels, now I want to wear them often.
I'm really slim, but I think I still could cut a little in the waist, if I took better care of myself.
My boobs are a problem, but it's more about lack of them…
I will do my best! I will adapt!
Thank you.

Anon you probably don't need to cut anything, your measurements seem fine. If anything you really don't have it too bad at all. Look up Chokelate, she's probably similar to you, and she fits brand just fine. If you're buying cheap chinese crap from AE then you're going to run into problems because they don't have shirring and will be small regardless if you can fit. Looking on it now, you're in a fine position, and you were definitely being overdramatic. If you're in fashion model measurements you can probably fit unshirred things, which a lot of tall girls can't.

I will try to seek help. I already promised someone I won't hurt myself, and I treat this very seriously.
I'm still not that happy about myself, but measuring the dress opened my eyes that the dress really wasn't for me, and it wasn't problem with my body.
This wasn't really good day for me, the mood swings didn't help either, and I was really over-optimistic before trying the dress on.
This was really my fault, as I didn't ask about the measurements of the dress. I knew that it would fit me in bust with a safe margin, and that it was kinda short.
The dress in question was MILK, and it was my first item with sleeves.
I fit quite well in JSKs, I had one previously in size S-M. I think it made me let my guard down. I also have no problems with skirts, so I knew that I would be fine there.
I measured the MILK dress today, and it has barely 32.5 cm in shoulders, and the sleeves are only 55 cm (it would work maybe as 3/4, if it weren't way too tight).
The dress is totally unsuited for a skirt, but now I think I might remove sleeves and turn it into a JSK. Or maybe cutting them above elbows would be enough, hmm.

I don't think I have any style yet. I'm leaning towards solids, simple patterns and not many prints. I thought I would wear classic and blacks, but turns out my first piece was a shiro JSK with fancy print.
I'm yet to debut in my first coord, too, as I'm still waiting for my petti and blouses to arrive.

Is it an asshole move to feel you’re drifting from your partner because they have less tertiary education than you?

I have two bachelor degrees in the ten years since we graduated high school, he’s not finished any of the degrees he’s started and now he has a big hole in his CV where he’s basically worked retail when he was excluded from university.

Lately it’s been grating because I’ll try and have a conversation with him about design, about movie trailers, you name it, only to be cut off with “you’re overthinking it.” I’m starting to think that we have less and less to talk about that isn’t superficial stuff like groceries and dog videos.

List of concerns:
I'm making the assumption most of this was not pre-assembled.

Surface pad IC
Unsure if the pad mounted IC in #1 is mounted to all connections properly since they're pretty difficult to get right, even with experience. They're also very easy to damage without using proper technique. You can youtube SMD package soldering and decide which method is easiest for you to use.

DIP sockets
Unless it came already mounted in #2, or if space was of a concern, the 24 pin should have been mounted in a DIP socket. Generally anything other than 6-pin IC's you should socket, since it can save you massive headaches later and prevents damaging the IC's if you're inexperienced. It's more preference than necessity, but also makes DIY easier to troubleshoot.

Through hole wiring technique
There are best practices for how the wiring should be done in #3, and you may want to use a 5 cable ribbon if possible. If how the boards end up fitting into the helmet is rather complex, I'd recommend you look into right angle wire-to-board connectors. Wire stress would greatly concern me during the final mounting into the helmet.

LED spacing
Not sure how the LED's are being assembled but you can use a printed sheet and a hole puncher on posterboard to get complex shapes and curves for mounting sets of LED's together.

There are a bunch of people on /diy/ that would be willing to give (better) advice too.

Also I'm not trying to hate, just making the observation your technique in general looks rather poor. There's plenty of help and information out there though. Best of luck anon, sorry it's being a big PITA for you.

I don't get how this is flirting? Grats to you, but I can't catch a hint of flirtatious intent from either side of that convo. Next time invite her to the party directly, this is the kind of vagueness that gets so many guys burned and feel "led on." Reminds me of the time someone thought I liked him because I agreed to share a hotel room with him (and his other buddies).

Anyway, good luck. All I have to say is be more assertive and less vagueness with your intentions. Bringing up a party randomly without specifically asking her out to it isn't going to really do much unless you're trying to do a slow build up to asking her directly.

For someone who has literally zero experience with girls (and previous flirtations have gone very wrong due to that), I have chosen to do indeed a slow build up, since previously i've been too 'fast'. I'm trying to learn with my mistakes and do something right.

She gets a lot of attention on her social media as a pretty famous local cosplayer so I really think being slow is good.

I've been dieting and exercising for cosplay because I feel stupid as fuck being an ~asian gril~ but not being stick thin and having skinny legs worthy of being Hot Dogs Or Legs. But man, when I see pictures of other people (especially if they're trying to lose weight as well) who have a "flat" stomach (some people have flat stomachs but still don't really look "skinny"... does that make sense?) but are shorter AND heavier than me I just feel so jealous. I think I'm skinnyfat because wearing clothes I look alright since I'm actually a "healthy weight" but I've got a gut which gets even worse throughout the day/with bloating, and it never went away even when I was underweight for a bit.

Go for it, and start with something simple - This is a tip for you and for your boyfriend.
Obviously starting simple is much better for your aesthetic and your budget, there are less mistakes to make when your coord is basic and it also costs less; you can always build up to something OTT later if you feel like it.
As for your boyfriend, maybe he thinks OTT is ridiculous but he'll think basic sweet lolita is cute; maybe he's not a fan of the fashion in general but he'll think it looks cute on you; or maybe has a preconceived idea of what sweet lolita looks like that isn't accurate - Like those people who think lolita is "cheap anime cosplay" when the most they've seen of it were itas, so they don't know what the actual fashion looks like.

If you do your best and your boyfriend is still negative, or worse, makes fun of you for it, I suggest talking to him seriously about it. Tell him he doesn't have to like it but at the very least you hope he respects you and your passion for it, and ask him to not make fun of you because it hurts you.
That's really what it's about. I hope you can change his mind and enjoy the fashion.

I'm sure you've tried this, but have you tried doubling your calorie intake and lifting? May not help your breast size but will build up some muscle so you're not skelly

Tried doubling, tripling, maybe going even further with my intake and doing exercises that target the spots I want to gain and it was all fruitless. I'm a bottomless pit when it comes to gaining weight, nothing passes through.

I'm a cis girl but I do basically look like one. Thanks.

Anon if you literally couldn't gain muscle or weight on a 4-5k calorie diet you should probably really go see a doctor about it. Surely you had to gain at least some weight during that diet?

Have you been screened for tape worms?

There is a medical condition that can cause this as well, I forget what it's called.
I have a friend that is the same as you and he may have it. he has to eat 4k a day in order to put on even the tiniest bit of muscle.

>> No.9782364

Increasing meal frequency can help. Eat every 2-3 hours.

I know this may sound a little crazy, but it may be worth it to keep a perfect record of your calorie intake and carb/fat/protein ratios with a spreadsheet for a weekly basis. Just out of curiosity what is your current weight/height?

More of a frustrated feel
but why do some of my closest friends refuse to take out their septum piercing when cosplaying?
"I know it would look better but if I take it out it will close up"

No it won't and besides if cosplaying is your true passion why would you get a septum piercing?

>> No.9782528

aren't nose piercings notoriously quick to close up, especially if they're new?

>> No.9782533

Can't remember exactly what they're called but don't they make retainer nose rings that are clear or skin colored? I don't understand why people spend hundreds of dollars on cosplay but won't spend $20-$30 on a different nose ring

The septum will close up fast for most people, and it's a piercing that you don't want to risk inflammation. I've had friends who had there's long past the healing phase who still can't leave it out more then an hour without it beginning to close up. So, no, most people can't risk taking it out for an all-day convention. There's the option of taking it in out for photography, but that will run the risk of inflammation and/or infection. That can lead to cartilage collapse when we're talking about a septum, industrial, or any upper ear piercing. It is true that a new septum piercing can start closing up in a matter of minutes, not hours, when we're talking about the nose.
You are right. There is the option of a clear retainer, but it'll still 'show'. I think many don't see the difference between clear or metal since the viewer will still see it. There's also the option of an open one that can be flipped upward although it doesn't sound comfortable.

>> No.9782847

Flipping up a small retainer isn't uncomfortable nor is it rocket science - and a retainer is all of $5. Even if you're picky about the material you use, there are decent glass or titanium ones for less than $30
