Is there any girl in your comm/that you know that you just can't stand? For whatever reason? Are you salty about her, is she salty about you? Did she steal your brand and set it on fire or did she ruin your meetup? Maybe she didn't do anything at all, but whatever it is, tell me the stories (without namedropping) and let's have a vent about that one bitch you can't stand.

>> No.9795007

I guess I'm salty about one girl in our comm who's younger than me (but just by 2 years). She got into the fashion before I did and she's really annoying about it. We share the same taste but I don't even know who's buying who's dreamdresses anymore.

>> No.9795025

Three girls turned up to our last meet not in lolita. One could have been an ita mess and one could have been otome but the third was clearly going for "fashion", not lolita at all. Also they were cliquey and just talked to each other and left really early after hijacking our guest from Japan. It was really weird.

>> No.9795027

that one girl who always brings up how she was sexually abused as a child and therefore has the right to hate on ageplayers. i despise them as well but she brings this up every fucking time. sorry you went through shit but... why bring it up all the time, especially when no one even mentioned ageplay etc in the first place? she also overcharges all her sales, like double retail price for old dresses, her proof image always being a worn image. nothing wrong with that but if i would pay that high price i would like the dress to be new with tags. sorry, i dont want to buy your used dresses anyway. i dont know why she annoys me so much, but i never told her or anyone else in my comm.

Wow, I'm 90% sure I know who and what meet you're talking about... I'm pretty sure those girls were dressed for London Fashion Week, and they seemed to be accompanying Minori there like a planned thing. I talked to them a little and they seemed nice enough. Their outfits really didn't fit into the meetup though, I agree that it was a bit weird.

>> No.9795032

They were really sweet, you probably just didn't make an effort to talk to them. Also I think they knew Minori, and she wanted to go to LFW too, so she wasn't 'hijacked'.

You're being silly. No one would want your friends to come along since you're not relevant in the community. But since Minori's presence was part of the reason people attended, her bringing some people she knows doesn't seem like the greatest offence in the world.

If you attended, you should know that we almost didn't have enough people to make the meet anyway, so if they had declined to go the meet may not have been successful.

There's a woman in my comm who I always thought was just super socially awkward, but I'm starting to feel like she's actually being rude. Every time she's at a meetup she goes up to another lolita and is like "so you're new to lolita, right?" even if the other girl has been part of the comm for years and dresses much better than a newbie would. At first I thought she was just trying to be welcoming and start a conversation but her tone is really rather condescending and she doesn't seem to want to talk to the person afterwards, just goes "hm" and walks away. Apparently she has done this to a lot of girls and they're always left feeling confused and a bit insulted sometimes. Today it occurred to me that she's like an IRL version of the "you must be new" meme.

>> No.9795280

she has misplaced hate for LWLN, thinking Tyler is using the AM/John harassment stories to make bank.

There is such girl in my comm. She's such a toxic person she basically ruins my staying in comm. Too bad she somehow claims she has a crush for me, so she constantly harasses me trying to convince me that all the lolitas are lesbians. Whenever I try to leave she acts super upset and posts sad kitty pics, then begins threating me saying she would like "to wear heeled shoes to jump on my ribcage". Sometimes the tries to troll me online trying to involve into conversation. I was too stupid and shared some problems of mine with her like lack of money for lolita or my age that basically prevents me from wearing some extreme sweet things. Now she never lets me to forget about those constantly trying to "comfort" me, although I never asked. Why tf would someone comfort almost complete stranger for lack of money?? What a blatant absence of tact?! This days I have to avoid all of the local communities and I even frightened to post lolita on my own socials, because I'm just sick and tired.
Need to mention, she's pretty popular lolita in my comm and western comm too, but she's ridiculously two-faced. She's been bitching anonymously about every single lolita from my comm who's any good at dressing themselves/is popular online/has rich bf or parents who buy them brand. She doesn't mind even talking shit about people she calls "friends" in her public socials. She truly hates kids, not just like any other child-free person, but she just treat them like a personal offence. One of her friends once took her son to a small meet that bitch wasn't even invited to, but it didn't prevent her from bitching for a weeks how she hates it so much. Ugh, this is honestly exhausting.

I find him cute too, though I'm Asian and probably have yellow fever as default setting. I just like that he seemed involved and interested, I mean I know he owns Baby, but seeing him actually dress up and take photos and looking at photo albums is kind of different because dudes normally blow off lolita as "girly stuff" and then act like they don't want to catch a disease from it.

I don't think all Asian girls have that as their default setting by any stretch, but I'm so glad I'm not the only one who has yellow fever in their default.

I find him really cute in the 'aww Asian dad likes cute things' kind of way. Like when you see some Asian's dad actually take interest in their hobbies rather than be cold and distant. Which makes me sound like I have father issues, but luckily I have a dad who geeks out almost as much as I do over inane things.

There's two. One's a perma-ita. She insists on handmaking everything and always chooses horrible lace and quilting fabric to make her sorry dresses out of, despite being politely directed towards more suitable fabric. She then pairs them with atrocious obviously not-lolita blouses. She's very obnoxious and now wants people to buy her awful trash. The second is less obnoxious but just as embarrassingly ita. She tries to turn thrifted prom dresses into lolita items and wears furry paraphernalia in coords.
There's also an ageplayer but at least she has the decency to keep her kinks private.

True. I often hear people talk about "hacks" like how their blouses aren't buttoned under their JSK and obviously if you're wearing a skirt you can't get away with something like that.

That's what I do, yeah. Usually with an "I love it too!" thrown in to indicate that I'm not getting rid of it anytime soon. I wonder how she feels about it, because If I were her I wouldn't want people to constantly @ me to point out my DD in non-sales posts.

Okay so I get a lot of people don't fit the skirt or blouse that they bought (despite there being blouses with 115cm bust), but I'm surprised that skirts became so irrelevant that people don't even consider someone else could prefer them over OPs and JSKs.

But when I started wearing it and going to meets she began to ignore me, only hang out with the popular comm members and pretended as if she didn't know me. It beamce awkward for me going to meets with her presence and fake behaviour, so I eventually stopped going and became a lone lolita.

As a busty-with-a-small-waist-chan, it’s way easier to do the skirt + fitting blouse thing than the jsk + blouse unbottoned thing (guilty—it’s only one blouse and only because I was an idiot and did the metric conversion wrong as a newb). Jsks, while they come in larger sizes then skirts sometimes, still have to fit your top and look nice in them. Blouses can be purchased at a larger size through taobao or Lady Sloth and paired with a skirt that fits your measurements. It almost always looks more appropriately fitted on me.

Now if you can find me a structured blazer that fits me, that would be some hot tech.

From my previous experiences in South Korea, I'm not sure I would feel 100% comfortable wearing it out and about alone, and it takes up so much space.

Actually everyone went for white and then lavender. The white OP was pulled from my cart first and when I looked at the listings after ordering only white was sold out for both OP and JSK.

I considered getting lavender as well! Good thing the white colorway has lavender in it as well.
I‘m looking forward to the OP the most, I love the design. But I‘d probably have to alter it so in case I can’t get myself to have the OP altered I can keep the JSK.

There's still a couple of colourways left, if you fancy pink or sax (jsk). Or you could contact an in-person SS and see if they can call up an AP store for the colourway you want (sometimes the prints sell out completely online but not in their physical stores).

Either lavender or white is going to sell for above retail if you want to get it right now, since it's sold out in the webshop. But give it a year and depending on whether AP promises a better floral print next year, the price is likely to drop eventually.

Super girly aestetics. Pretty animals with long ass lashes and cute puff tails, perfectly aligned bows, custom lace and buttons. Back in the time they were making super detailed intricate solids.

All of what the others said, plus pockets. Don't underestimate the importance of pockets, I keep wanting to switch brand loyalty but the idea that I'd have to sew my own pockets into other brands' dresses kind of makes me reluctant to plop down full price for a dress I'd have to alter.

Plus, AP do actually take a lot of care with their design and construction. Quite often you'll get a dress in and find it actually has 3-5 different types of lace, at least one of which is custom made for AP and can't be found on taobao (at least until someone replicates it), the buttons will be novelty buttons that are unusual and match the theme, and 98% of the time their bows are perfect. Don't be fooled by how most AP fans seem to chase prints, they do have pretty solid construction behind most of their dresses.

Look at Baby, their lace, trims, buttons - all of them has some really simple generic motifs. Also have you ever noticed that AP dresses have really thoughtful construction. Slightly high waist, that makes your torso look smaller and cuter, fuller skirts, that have built-in petti and basically sits better on your own petti, proportional bows, but not just some gathered pieces of fabric.

In my country too many people are familiar with the works of Nabokov, and saying "loli" or "goth loli" does not get that immediate association. I never use it around other lolitas, but when dealing with normies I'd rather drop a few letters than go into long explanations every fucking time.

match your metals. don't wear lace accessories with a laceless main. make sure fabric weight is consistent; but if mixing weights, like coording chiffon with velveteen, make it balanced.
having the style consistent is a huge miss for many coords. the longer you're in the fashion the easier it is to tell get the feel from an item, and if something's too sweet in its detailing for a gothic coord.

the most successful coords, however simple, are clear in style/intent. perfection is when the accessories match not only in motif/theme but style and color as well. quality all over is also key.

No, really. An IW dress is likely $250. Baby and AP dress likely $300. Only one of them I can wear straight out of the box as-is. Only one of them I don't have to send to the tailor's for a week and shell out more money for pockets.

Honestly, it's just that all the sweet brands actually have their own identity and their own market segment. Someone who likes a more toned down but sugary sweet style will go for Baby over AP. Someone who likes plainer dresses with simpler prints will go for IW. The ones that go for AP obviously dig the cutesy fluffy precious doll aesthetic. There's no real big mystery about it, I think they all do their own thing to cater to their own followers. Baby followers would probably throw a hissy fit if Baby started putting out dresses that looked like AP, similar to IW, and AP dresses that aren't fluffy pretty doll dresses would probably sit abandoned on the rack because their followers like the fluffy pretty doll look.

When it comes to cuts, the effect can be very, very different. Even more so if you have them in in different cuts and different colourways.

- I have the skirt and jsk for Chess Chocolate. The skirt is pretty much almost non lolita casual. The jsk is properly lolita.
- I have the skirt + cutsew and the OP for Happy Garden. Both sets in blue, so they share one set of accessories, which is nice. The skirt + cutsew is fully lolita, but kind of casual, like a picnic meet sort of outfit. The OP is more like a cafe meetup type of dress.
- The one that's the most similar is Musee du Chocolat OP and jsk. I have the ivory set with headbow and tights, they were kind of a dream set and I really don't want to get rid of them even though they're a bit too fancy for how I usually dress. I also have the pink jsk that's a bit more versatile and easier to change up. Both sets share the same chocolate accessories.

In my case it doesn't even make sense for me to chose between keeping a casual cute skirt or a lolita jsk, between a casual lolita set or a non-casual set, between a dream dress or a more versatile non-dream-dress. The only actual effect from keeping multiples is being able to share similar accessories between prints, can't say that's a bad thing.

- IW-rando doesn't have enough brown going on
- when it came to Moitie the "arteest" heard the words "gothic lolita" and therefore drew a goth emo boy instead of an aristo boy. Furthest thing from Moitie ever.
- Angelic-Pretty rando seems colourblind
- Metamo-rando should really have been an a teddy bear camo shit and they put him in this?
- Mary Magdalene rando mistakenly looks like a priest, which was more Atelier Boz's thing (Boz-rando in turn looks more like he's cosplaying, which would be Bodyline's thing).
- JetJ-rando doesn't even look artsy enough to "get it"
- Bodyline-rando just looks out of place, at least make him out to be an ita coser or something.

Why are none of these ever right?

>> No.9797792

Did this artist even bother to look at the websites of the brands? Because not a single one of these is accurate. Why is Moitie an emo with a girly haircut instead of Mana wearing aristo? Seriously, Moitie should have been the easiest to get right. Why are Boz and MM both cosplaying as vampires? MM isn't even gothic. Bodyline should just be Mr Yan in his top hat. This artist dropped the ball so hard it's actually frustrating.

I have this JSK in yellow & lavender, it's absolutely cute and it was one of my goals to wear this while I was in the process of losing weight. It's one of AP's smaller dresses unfortunately.

I have a girl like this, lets call her Kate. We are a very small comm, only 6-7 people in total, Kate is one of them, for quite a few years now and she always acts in a very pompous, condescending and kinda passive aggressive manner, even though she sweet talks a lot. But the worse thing is, she has nothing to show for it! She's not managed to make a decent coord all these years, and she has the audacity to self proclaim as a "brand-whore" just because she has an old AP skirt and some otome dress.

I have a lolita mentee in this group, that I am very proud of, and last meetup was her debut in lolita. She wore an amazing VM coord with a super cute classic hat and accessories. I was very happy that her first coord was so good. And when the meet was almost over, Kate, (as if representing the entire group), told her in a sweet/patronizing way that "WE" would really love to see her again, even if she wears the same dress.

Bitch, you will never be the lolita she is and she just started. I would have kicked her off for making people feel awkward, but we are so few...beggars cant be choosers I guess.

One in our area comm that's a 3edgy5u pseudo-Goth transtrender. She always acts victimised by everything, and hijacks every conversation with how things are so terrible for her, and how hard her life is, but people are only rude to her about her 'Goth' stuff because she goes full edgelord and takes an attitude with people, trying to upset the Christians on purpose, going on about like how she's vampire and stuff, wearing demon horns to a church, etc. She's in her 20s, so she's too old for this cringe, and it makes the other Goths/Lolitas that wear Gothic look bad. Most of us want to just be left alone to do our own thing, and she just goes around doing this stupid attention-seeking shit, and won't grow out of it. In fact, the older she gets, the more desperate she seems for attention. I think she's been doing the transtrender thing because of an actual FtM person in her circle of friends getting lots of support and her feeling left out, but she doesn't even try to look male, just bitches about pronouns

So in your opinion, how many people do you need to form a comm? We are deffinitely not a fiend group because we dont hang out outside of lolita. Eh I'd freeze her out but with so few people, I'd rather help the existing members up their coord game than shoo people, or I will be left alone haha

>> No.9797933

I don't know, I guess if you are just joined by lolita then you're a comm, but since you said this Kate girl has been into lolita for years I assumed you guys knew each other over the course of a long time, hence why I assumed friend group.
I'm dealing with a girl who sounds like your girl. Terrible coords, bad makeup, but acts like she's all that and a pack of crackers. Super condesending. I think I posted about her recently, just trying to vent it out. I wish I had a solution to dealing with these sorts of people, but not everyone finds them as annoying as I do.

>> No.9797935

Yes, that is absolutely hideous. See if you can find or commission something similar in metal. If you can't bear wearing actual metal, commission something in thermoplastic or worbla from someone who makes good cosplay armour, or hard leather from someone who makes larp armour. There are tons on Etsy.

I have a couple brand blouses from my teen years that are, kinda ugly, pit stained and to embarrassing, to sell or give to another lolita.

>> No.9797965

A thrift store isn't going to be able to sell them either. You could ask a dry cleaner if it's possible to remove the stains. You could also ask in the old school thread if anyone is interested. If you still can't get rid of them, repurpose them into decor or cleaning rags.

I'd say take a stab at selling them cheap anyway. If you don't like it being connected to your name, ask a friend to do it under their account for you and buy them dinner in return or something.

Alternatively, assuming you already tried all the cleaning methods, you could straight up soak it in bleach and see if you get a white (ish) blouse at the end.

If you sew, you can also take it apart for raw materials, ie- lace and fabric to make another blouse, bag, headbow, dress for your kumya,

Try to clean them first, if that doesn't work maybe you could dye them a different colour (I don't have experience with that). I would wear them underneath a cardigan or OP. You could also alter them into something like pic related.

She sounds similar to someone in my comm though my comm is quite large. She calls herself an AP brandwhore even though her wardrobe consists of like two AP dresses and a bunch of “loliable” things that she originally bought for various cosplays. Despite this she talks like she’s an authority on everything Jfashion and is constantly lecturing people on subjects she actually knows very little about even if the person she’s talking to has much more experience and knowledge on that subject and is telling her she’s wrong. When she’s not condescendingly talking out of her ass she’s talking about cosplay and then gets annoyed when not everyone at a lolita meetup cares about cosplay. I try to avoid sitting with her at meets though she’s funny to observe from a distance.

Like people who list shiny Pokémon on the GTS and then ask for a lvl 5 Mewtwo in trade.

>if something's too sweet in its detailing for a gothic coord.
It took me so, so long to understand this. The smallest details can give a sweet vibe to an otherwise neutral style/gothic appropriate dress. Little bows, certain ribbon choices, all make a difference in the feel of a coord overall.

Same here. The girl I described doesn’t post in RC much but there’s another girl in my comm who does, to the point where people on cgl have complained about her. She at least isn’t a cosplayer but she dresses mediocre at best and still thinks her unsubstantiated opinions are super important. I don’t think I’ve ever seen her and cosplay-chan go head to head. Maybe I should try manoeuvring the two of them together some time, see who comes out on top.

Her coords aren't usually all that bad - except when she tries too hard to go edgy and ends up looking costume-y. I don't think people in the comm would tolerate her as much if she was ita on top of the bad attitude desu. She dresses 'Goth' outside of Lolita, but in an Instagram/tumblr-core kind of way (nu-Goth?) with harnesses and 'witchy' hats, and red contact lenses, etc. I doubt she knows Siouxsie Sioux from Patricia Morrison, though. She's likely to be the kind to argue ~but Goth is what you make of it~ and cry elitist.
