I agree that bridal is a good idea. I'm also not sure what country you're in, so I'm not sure if this next part is relevant. But making dress for formal dances like homecoming, and for quinceañeras can also make good money. Parents are willing to drop insane amounts of money on dresses for their teenage girls.

On the subject of expensive dresses for young girls, beauty pagaent dresses and costumes are also something you could make.

Good luck!

I finally got my shit together. I'm flirting with a girl and I got her addicted to the attention I'm giving her. Finally I'm pulling out something successfully with girls, and that added to the fact I realized I need psychological help makes me so happy.

I have no reason to sperg out on any kind of girl, and I have chances with any girl that I want, because I know my self worth. That makes me so happy. Valentine's day got nothing on me, I know soon enough I'll find someone cool for me.

Glasses shops always try to pull this shit especially because they know damn well their business model is in Jeopardy of toppling over now that more people are shopping online and realizing that prices for frames are artificially inflated.

They are required by law to give you your prescription if you request it. No ifs, ands, or buts. It is YOUR property, not theirs. I know it's too late in your case but keep that in mind next time so you don't get ripped off. Fuck brick and mortar eyeglass shops - glasses are a medical necessity. Fuck companies like luxotica.

I had a shop do this to me, I politely reminded them that they are required by law to give me my prescription. They still refused. I then took out a sheet of paper, a pen, and firmly asked for that in writing, with a signature, printed name, and date. All of the sudden, magically, they were able to give me my prescription. Do this trick next time - they'll give it to you. If they don't, you can present a firm case to the FTC (but it never gets to this point because they know it isn't worth it). Ever since then, I always have a pre-written letter prepared every time I get an exam (just generic "I [insert name] refuse to give Anon their results for their optical screening because [reason here] [signature here][date here]" kind of thing). I've only had to whip it out once, they always back down completely from their stance when you ask them to leave a paper trail of responsibility.

Finally will be moving to a city that has a comm. No longer will be a lone lolita.
Bittersweet feelings as my boyfriend is acting very distant and cold. He told me a few weeks ago "I have no feelings for anything. I am broken" and was about to break up with me when his friends got him to just put the relationship on hold. I'm devastated by this and I have no idea what to do. He's skipping work a few days a week, has no energy but otherwise everything is the same as before, except he shows me no affection... I want to stay by his side and see him get better but it's so painful. He was so passionate about jfashion but he just completely lost interest. I came into the relationship knowing he had issues but I didn't expect him to be so cruel and emotionless. I just don't know what to do. I want my prince back.

Two major r9k-tier red flags:
>got her addicted to the attention I'm giving her
that's very creepy and worrying. is she an animal? are you trying to lure her? no. she's a human that you are supposed to develop mutual connection with. there are deceitful and sociopathic undertones here my dude. it's not about manipulation. get real.

>I have chances with any girl that I want
wrong. some girls will just flat out not like you, just like you have your own standards and will not pursue any and every girl. Life is not like the Pickup Artist.

You did not learn your self worth overnight. slooooow down. the more you get to know this girl she may not even be datable. take it easy and get to know her. be excited about your internal progress, yes, but don't think you've arrived.

it's a heavily gendered thing to think you can dangle attention and interest in front of a girl and she'll be so needy that she'll do anything for you. be kind and gentle with people's hearts and desires, anon.

He admitted he thinks he is depressed, he says he hasn't had any strong feelings for anything in a few years. His friend got him to try an online therapy console but I have no idea what he's been doing with it. He doesn't tell me, except that he's 'looking into it'. I will stay by his side as long as he wants me too, I love him dearly and I can't abandon him. But I don't know how I'd cope if he truly left me.

Thank you though, hopefully he'll be able to overcome this.

>>9785541
I'm so sorry. please understand that it's not your fault that he is struggling with depression. protect your feelings, and let him know that you still care and will be here if he wants to continue the relationship, but I think you should seize this new chapter.

Your new comm will likely be amazing and offer a lot of fun companionship.
mental illness is his battle to fight. you can support him and root for him, but he may need this space to get his illness under control.
I'd write him a letter with everything you adore about him, and admire about him, and what your dreams of a future with him look like. this way he can look at it and feel your love and be motivated to keep working through his pain.

Am I correct in assuming you are moving without him?

We were going to move in together but he rather stay with his mother for now. His friends (which are my friends too) are taking me in as my current living situation is very chaotic and I already have a new job lined up. I can sense his mother and esp her boyfriend want him to move out but with his current mindset it might be for the best for him to stay there. I just hope he doesn't lose his job.

He has asked me for space, and I am giving it to him but the hard cut compete stop of affection is killing me. I baked him cookies and wrote him a small letter of encouragement for Valentines Day. He introduced me to his comm, they are friendly but I'm sure they'll ask me why he doesn't attend anymore. Maybe one day he can wear aristocrat again and come back.

I don't think i've reached excellency overnight as well, dude. I'm just happy about my progress. I might have gone a little too overexcited at my words indeed, but don't you worry. What i'm seeking out of her is indeed to get to know her better - she's just too 'closed' and we've been talking for a bit of a time.

I have not arrived and I know that. Heck, i'm still going to a psychologist to get my shit fixed so I won't be a train wreck to the girl who ends up loving me or something.

I understand that you're concerned abotu someone who never tried to seduce anyone to become a grunt who bruteforces his way through sex and leaves people's hearts broken but i'm not going to do that. It's not in my nature to do that - I do charity work and she does too. I'm just going to see if she allows me to be more intimate with her, to get to know her better, to develop mutual connection with. Simple as that.

Whatever anon I'm taking pity on you to answer this without knowing the circumstances.
Chances are if they're actually an asshole (psycho/sociopath) you've bought into an idealized version of who they want you to believe they are. You're caught up in thinking how you would want them to treat you, instead of how they actually do. You're chasing after things that haven't happened instead of what already has. When they break your expectations they promise you something better to make you forget. It's likely you suffer from low self-esteem or you wouldn't be chasing after someone that treats you poorly in the first place, so you also think they are simply better than you. Their attractiveness to you is that on one hand you think they should be out of your reach, but that their limited interest in you has proven otherwise. The reality is they know exactly how much attention to feed you so they can get what they actually want with minimal effort. Here's what you can be sure of, if someone really wanted to spend time with you, they would. If they felt the same about you, there wouldn't be a cat and mouse game about making themselves available.

He's well known for being an asshole, but I figured those were just rumors, until I got to know him personally.

There's something wrong with me. Whenever a manga I love gets an anime, I get bitter about it because I know it'll become a "flavor of the month" anime. Cardcaptor Sakura Clear Card, Yurucamp, etc. I've loved CCS since I was 11 and I read Yurucamp a million times when the first chapter came out. I should be happy to see them flourish and get popular (again, in CCS's case), but I feel my mind is being invaded by these grubby selfish "yer not a real fan" emotions. I never ride the waves of popularity -- I really, truly love them and I hate that others will only ride the hype train. I shouldn't waste my energy on this, but GODDAMN does it make me sour.

Jfc, I never understood why people get so salty over anime getting popular. You aren't some superior elite anime watcher just because you don't follow what's popular, and just because someone does like the "trending" anime doesn't mean they're any less of a fan? It is possible to still enjoy a series that you only found because it was #1 on popularity for the month or whatever. It's anime anon, it's not that deep to a lot of people.

How old are you two? I don't mean that in a disrespectful way, it helps to understand the scenario a little better. He's definitely sus for wanting a friend to sleep over on Valentine's day (why? It's a weekday...doesn't he and his friend have work/school?) and I don't think you should feel too bad about asking him to not go through with it.

On one hand, trust is absolutely crucial for relationships to work out properly and even moreso for long distance relationships; but on the other hand he's giving off some alarming flags by wanting a friend to sleep over on a holiday like Valentine's instead of trying his best to spend it with you.

As for your /cgl/ feels, I'm relating to that somewhat. I had a package of winter capes that got shuffled into mail limbo. By the time I get them, winter will be over.

Usually guys only say this so that they can find a new partner so that they can dump you and not be alone. Sorry ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

If you wear "normie" clothes you probably mean tight pants or else you would not have to worry about pantylines.
If you have the choice between pantylines and your thong riding out of your pants then pantylines are clearly better because thong peeks look trashy as hell.

I used to do alterations for my local dry cleaner. A woman dropped off her dress pants to have a hole repaired, which was near the zipper.

I fixed the hole, and then noticed something reddish whitish on my sewing machine. I didn’t think too much of it until I started to clean it.

The disgusting stuff on my machine was vaginal discharge from those dress pants.

I cleaned my sewing machine with alcohol. I charged her $25 for a $5 repair. And I informed the owners of the dry cleaners that they are never to accept clothing for repair only, because that was a putrid experience.

It's not just about the feeling of guilt, it's like a noble thing to do in their heads - by making you hate them and break up with them, they feel like they're saving you from the sadness of being dumped.

Welp, I thought the sponge would add too much paint so I used a brush, and I didn't flatten the paper.

There's slight bleed on some very minor parts of it but it came out pretty well. My autism is tempting me to redo the parts again since the paint washes out until it's heat set, but I also realize it's so minor that it won't be visible unless you're really looking for it.

I guess it was nice being taken seriously instead of thinking I'm so immature, or being asked what it is I actually have to be stressed about or that I have no reason to be upset about things.

Jesus christ, how the fuck is the USPS so fucking incompetent with their jobs? I went there F O U R times over the course of a month for this package in person and nobody could find it. I had two different people give me their word that they would call me if it turned up anywhere. I put in a request to find a lost package over their systems. I did everything in my power to get this package, and it just MAGICALLY turns up and is found on the exact day that its claim limit is up and instead of informing me they just ship it back. I won't be seeing these capes until after winter is over by now, AND I'll have to pay for them to be shipped back again.

So I work cons, and I sell wigs sometimes. Usually when tweens ask for the price of wigs, they scoff and walk away. For reference my prices are almost identical to Epic, so anywhere from $30-60 ish. A lot of tweens show up to a con with $20 and forget they need to eat.

This one pair of girls keeps coming up and asking about wig prices. I tell them the price, they walk away. I'll call the main girl sweatshirt-chan, as the other eventually disappears. This means sweatshirt-chan keeps coming to the booth alone and petting the wigs, commenting to me about how cute they are. I make some small talk, but I figure she can't buy a wig, and so attend to other paying customers She disappears again and we start to close up. I start putting wigs away anywhere from an hour to thirty minutes before close because they can take some time.

About 15 minutes out from close sweatshirt-chan walks up with an older woman. Most all of the wigs are brushed, bagged, and thrown into their appropriate bin. She asks if we're closed and I say no, and pull back out a few wigs for her. I ask her which ones she liked, as she had touched almost every wig within reach, and she returns with, "What do you think would look good on me?"

Now, I don't say anything, but we are 15 minutes away from closing. I'm not in the mood to pull out every wig and figure out what she likes, because a lot of the time when someone asks that, they already know what they want and want me to reinforce their decision.

So I remember that she was fascinated with this rosy pink wig with two high pigtails, and I pull that out along with some other colors she says she likes. After displaying a few she settles on the rosy pink one, and the older lady offers to buy it.

Turns out the older woman is her aunt, or a family friend. She brought her along with her own daughter, the girl that eventually abandoned sweatshirt-chan. I ask sweatshirt-chan if she wants to wear the wig out, and she says yeah, so I sit her down and get it on her head.

As I'm showing her the basics to getting a wig on, she starts to tell me about how she just cut her hair for locks of love. The aunt chimes in with how long it was, nearly down her butt, and I laugh and explain I did the same thing at her age. And then sweatshirt-chan breaks my fucking heart with:

"And the irony is, just after I cut my hair for locks of love, my mom was diagnosed with breast cancer!"
The aunt again chimes in with, "It was the very next day."
I'm just stunned for a minute, say something idiotic like holy shit no way, and then as I'm cashing the aunt out sweatshirt-chan starts talking anime.
"They can have pink hair and cute hair styles! And they have these perfect thin bodies, not like mine~" *groans*
I think she said something else, but I blanked again for a minute because I just saw this baby's whole future. I said something like, "You're so cute in the wig though!" But I wish I had said more. Something to just dispell her future eating disorders and anxieties concerning her mother. I don't even know what would be appropriate, but about once every other week I think about her and feel bad.

I know you're too young to be on 4chan, sweatshirt-chan, but I hope you and your mother and your whole family are doing well. I hope you learn sooner than later that anime bodies are not a goal, they are not a reality. I hope the lack of control you feel concerning your mother's illness finds some other outlet than controlling your calorie intake. I hope you find happiness in something more than a perfect body. I hope you find some hobby you can pursue wholly. I sincerely hope your mother survives and can bring you to anime conventions one day.

They had a shelf dedicated to Melanie Martinez paraphernalia because there's a local regular that does most of the art for it. They even took the cover out the Crybaby CD to show me and my boyfriend while we were browsing the cases for desserts. Then they brought up facebook on their phones to show pictures of her to me. Originally, they assumed I was one of her friends because of how I was dressed. It was pretty awkward, but they meant well and the chocolate was good.

Pretty great. I get spoiled on some macaron specialty shops back home in my big city, and I would give these a solid 8/10. Perfect texture and consistency and actually using ganache as opposed to some shitty oreo-esque filling. My only hangup is that some flavours were overly tangy sweet.

If it makes you feel any better I don't think Yuru Camp is really going to be popular for cosplays. The outfits are kind of generic and boring imo. The anime itself is really good though so who knows, but I don't really see a bunch of costhot posers cosplaying it. I definitely know how you feel though. I watched Yuri Kuma Arashi as it aired and loved it. As it was airing I was so scared that it was going to become the next big slutty cosplay anime but thankfully it didn't. Yuri Kuma is now my favorite anime and I cannot wait until I get good enough at sewing to make a cosplay from it!

Gulls, I'm agoraphobic, and it's making my social life a mess. Ever since I was a nine or ten I've had both general and social anxiety, with the latter being worst when I'm socially obligated to a group of unfamiliar people. Structured settings like classes or work are generally manageable, but things such as parties, trips, and meet ups make me want to turn into a million bugs and crawl out of my own skin. Even if I'm really excited for it or think it will be fun, I become incredibly physically and emotionally uncomfortable leading up to and, if I attend, during the event.

I've only attended three meet ups because of this. The first one, I managed to barely hold my spaghetti thanks to it being a museum meet up where I could wander off alone. Ended up meditating in the powder room for like ten minutes because I felt a panic attack coming on. Then I threw up and passed out when I got home. The second (different comm) felt incredibly uncomfortable at times, but I had some fun. I still felt incredibly drained after a short afternoon tea, though. The third was again bearable, but it was in my hometown at my favorite tea room. I left before the second portion because I felt so drained, though.

It sucks because I really want to go out and hang out with other people who like the fashion, but my stupid fucking anxiety makes it so taxing and not fun. I'm working on it through therapy, but it's worse when I'm already stressed or anxious from my job/life.

Anyone else deal with this? What helps?

tl;dr How can I get over my agoraphobia and make irl lolita friends?

People apparently really want to believe, or maybe they’re just stupid. A while ago a relative of mine tagged me in a Facebook post about a cosplayer because they knew I liked “that Japanese stuff” (I wear lolita). The photo was clearly heavily edited and parts of the wig and costume were straight up painted on with some kind of photo editing software. Even ignoring the anatomically questionable face shoop, the editing was really obvious when I tilted my screen back. I made a joke about it and got dogpiled by people denying that the photo was edited at all, calling me jealous of her “natural beauty” and “cosplay skills”.
I don’t even have anything against photo editing but 1) at least do a decent job at it and 2) don’t deny it when it’s that fucking obvious.

I didn't say it rudely or defensively, I just explained to them that anime lolita =/= real lolita. It's not misleading at all because it's 100% true and anime lolita is pure ita, it just looks 'cute' on 2d characters.
The girl was very forward and pushy about it. Gave me fujoshit vibes. They didn't just say it, they were all up in my face about it. When someone, especially a stranger, gets in my face, I get uncomfortable and don't really know how to respond to situations like that.
When I explained further what lolita was they continued on about how anime determines what is and isn't lolita and basically that anime defines everything in Japan.
It wouldn't have mattered if I asked what anime they saw it in. If I told them the character looked like shit in the nicest way possible, an argument would still start.

Same goes for you if you're not baiting. What's happened is some fucking toddler discovered the feminine disposal bin, realized everything can stick, and decided to do some decorating with sticky pads. You would be amazed what kids will do, and even more amazed what their parents refuse to take responsibility for.

Once in the beauty supply store, lady's kid just started pissing all over the floor in front of me. This kid must've been around 10. Before I could move to get cleaning supplies and paper towels, the mom grabs her kid's arm, says, "I'm sorry," and fucking books it out of the store. I cleaned up piss that day. Sage for off-topic, but don't forget that women do have kids... kids result in shit and piss related monstrosities.

Oh man anon I feel you so bad. There's a mobage that I've been playing ever since it released back in 2015, that's now gotten attention with cosplayers. It fills me with unimaginable amounts of salt that I see more and more cosplayers at cons, or people in social media talking about wanting to cosplay from it but not actually bothering to play it aside from downloading the game and rolling the gacha a couple of times with the accumulated free currency. There was even a person on the local artist alley selling prints from it, and a friend who follows their twitter mentioned that the person had complained about ~being insecure~ about drawing from something they "no longer play" even though they never actually started in the first place.
I'm glad that the game is popular in Japan because I know a lot of the fans there actually support the game itself, but I hate that popularity in the west often means people "liking" the series so that they can cosplay from it and get showered with attention.
I cosplayed from the game myself a little more than a year ago and only like three people actually recognized me. Last fall I cosplayed from it again and got a bunch of cosplayers talking to me about how happy they are that others are starting to like the series too. I've probably never been more annoyed at a person who was complimenting my costume and I felt like an awful human bean but I just want to protect my absolute favorite things from people who'll just dump them for the next popular thing.

I've bitched about my friend before on here, but time to do it again.
We've been friends since our teens, and don't live close to each other anymore, but I think I've always been a good friend to her. She's pretty much my only close friend. I don't have a lot of people I talk to, but recently she's made loads of new friends and told me that I'm horrible to her and have 'changed'.
I don't know what's happened. Whenever we hang out she's always talking about her other friends, and I just have to smile and nod as if I give a fuck. One of these girls is very homophobic, and my friend is bi, so why would you want to hang around someone like that? She's hurtful to me as well, she's always calling me stupid and a horrible person, but I just brush it off because I'd rather have her in my life than start drama. It's been like that for so long, it seems pointless to call her out now, but I did anyways, and she has excuses for her behaviour, apparently I deserve it.
At this point I'm exhausted. I don't even know what the issue is, she won't tell me what exactly I've done aside from I went to sleep one time when she wanted me to stay up and entertain her. I really have no fight left in me. Being sad like this knocks all the life out of me, even opening a window seems extremely difficult. I know it'll pass but I hate this. I suppose I'm being replaced. I didn't realise years of friendship could be erased so easily. Sucks to suck.
I just feel like laying down and ceasing to exist.

To keep it cgl related, I don't feel attractive in jfashion because I have a weird body shape. I'm average weight but I don't have a defined waist, even with shapewear. I feel like a cylinder with boobs. I like what I do but someone else wearing my clothes would make them look 10 times better. Seeing photos of myself is hell.

I'm really curious what the mobage is.

.

On a related note, I started UtaPri's mobage this week, and I really, really want to like it but I just keep getting salty that it's not IDOLiSH7. I find myself annoyed by all the stereotypical characters and fast forwarding through their dialogue because none of it is personal. Since it's an add-on to an existing franchise the game takes the stance that the player already knows and loves all these characters and gives me absolutely no reason to care about them while overloading catch phrases and fan service. Meanwhile the idol raising rhythm mobage I adore got a subpar anime and no hope of an english game release in sight.

I know I should be drawing UtaPri prints for Artist Alley because it is exactly up my alley and my brand and the kind of thing people will expect from me. But I'm just. So. SALTY.

Meanwhile I keep playing UtaPri and I don't know if it's because I'm starting to like it or if I'm stubborn and hate myself.
