Hold me, gulls, I'm so excited. I've been so absolutely giddy about this that it's taken me all of my willpower not to randomly scream. I've already got my dress picked out, and we've picked out a beautiful secluded lakeside location to have it and we've ordered over 50 dozen roses to decorate the entire event. I still haven't gotten around to designing the cake, but a local bakery said they could get little figurines of the hubby and me to put on top of the cake, and in my dress. Every day has been flying by, and it's like being in a dream. Every day I just keep thinking about >tfw no cosplay/lolita gf and how incredibly lucky I am to find such an amazing man and such an amazing comm that's willing to help me with my wedding plans. I hope all of you find someone wonderful that you're ready to spend the rest of your life with, that loves you and your hobbies!

Just tell them you don't really want to do the costumes but you'd still love to hang out, they'll understand. And if they don't, they may not be worth your time and effort. It's better to back out now than after spending your money on costumes you don't want, or to stay miserable in silence.

I really love the look of some OPs, but I have such a weird set of measures, I can only wear JSKs and SKs.
The one time I took the risk and bought an OP, it fitted me so horribly, I just put it in the wardrobe and went to bed to cry.

Starting with the positives, slim hourglass body shape, slightly (but naturally) underweight. It allows me to easily fit S or M size in lolita, at least for JSKs.
My waist is around 65 cm (26"), so bigger sizes would be loose on me.

But then come the things that are off.
My chests seems to be a little big, but I have small breasts, around size A. Not that much of an issue with lolita, as only sometimes, in more bustier pieces, the breast area can be a little loose in JSKs, but it rarely looks bad and is better than a boobloaf.
I'm very tall, 178 cm (5'10"), and with that come long limbs. The long sleeves are way too short for me. I could go around that with cuffs or sleeves under the OP.
Sadly, my shoulders are unnaturally wide, making OPs feel really tight. It applies both to long and short sleeves. It's probably the worst part, and there's not much I can do to change that.

I kinda want to try out some princess sleeve OP, but I really don't want to be disappointed again by my shoulders.
Doesn't help that the OP I got was the most expensive piece I have got so far, and I really love the pattern print on it.

I plan to talk about alterations with my mom, who is a seamstress. I really wish something could be done about the OP I got.
Custom things might be out of my budget currently, and I don't know anyone who got experience with lolita dresses.

Now that I think, maybe my shoulders are not unnaturally wide. Just appropriately wide for my height.

>> No.9812260

Cup size generally only matters in lolita if you are over b and even then if you are under 90cm it won't matter that much. I recommend you take your bust measurement too (from the highest point of your breast, with bra) and your shoulder width. Because you are quite tall, the waist of the dress probably doesn't sit at your actual waist and the bust place will be off - especially if you have large shoulders. I'm 165cm and my measurements are 65/83cm and I still struggle with OP's due my shoulders (42cm). They really make the fit really wonky and bad but I can wear OP's that are loose on shoulders, so there is hope for you, too.

Also, if you measure your bust it might be worth to measure your underbust too and look up your true bra size. Your cup size might actually be bigger than you expect!

Due to self-esteem issues I tend to dress like a slob. Oversized t shirts, old jeans, old sneakers. But I've always wanted to be feminine and cute and confident. So recently I purchased a few dresses and things to go with them ( a cute cardigan, tights, ect) and I'm nervously awaiting for everything to show up in the mail. I was inspired by casual j fashion looks and I'm hoping I can pull it off and feel better about myself.

W-wish me luck everybody

Nice! I'm always behind that, good on you, anon!
Just remember not to give up and not to be too down on yourself with what you're wearing. Let people that you find to have a good fashion sense give you some critique, don't be afraid to approach them.
Try to dress in a way that accentuates your positive features.
And always remember that there's nothing quite as attractive as a pretty smile!

Good luck, anon!

My best lolita friend recently bought me a new dress and I've been choked up about it for over a week. She bought herself one and we plan to twin.
It started because we both were interested in a print, and coincidentally, the designer re-released said print literally a week after we had talked about it! When it came out she insisted she buy it for me, even though I told her I couldn't let her do that...

She says it's no big deal because of her tax return. Also that she's doing it for me because she really cares about my depression and what it's done to me over the last two years. So she's buying me the dress to lift my spirits and possibly get me jumpstarted into lolita again.

I don't know how I'll ever repay her back. I've never, ever, ever, ever, had any friend do something so nice and thoughtful for me before.
I want to shout it to the world about what she's done for me but I can't say anything because our mutual friends might feel left out or she might get embarrassed. I don't want to brag to hurt other people, but at the same time I want people to know about what an awesome friend I have. The only person who knows is my boyfriend and even he thinks she's being extremely generous. He's on the 'how the fuck are you gonna repay her?' level as I am.

I've been kinda gushy every time I've been talking to her, probably to the point where I look like a sentimental sap. But I can't help it.
I love that girl. In the past I've had such awful friendships where I was taken advantage of and (made) to buy them things. It's just nice to be on the receiving end of something thoughtful and unconditional. I don't know how to handle it.

>> No.9812911

Let her know how much you appreciate it, anon. The best way to thank her, other than outright saying "thank you", is to be a friend for her; take the time to listen to her, be there for her when she needs you.
It sounds like you've found someone truly wonderful, not because she's buying you dresses but because she does this to try to help you when you're down; so be a friend and support her back.

Have fun twinning!

It's been my dream for years to make a lolita subculture themed 90s style website with all the information and material I've collected over the years that's a bit like a game where you have to hover certain things in a picture to make them move and click them to get to know related information. I literally have a notebook full of ideas and sketches and now I've finally started learning HTML. I know it's the basics of the basics and I still have so much more to learn.

Looking to trade a dress - listed all the information, repeatedly stated I was wanting to trade it, listed possible trade offers and said I was open to ideas.

And of course the first reply to the post is "Are you willing to sell it?"

Listen cunt, if I was willing to sell it, I would've fucking said in the post. But considering the post ONLY talks about trading, I feel like that's a large flag that no, I don't wanna sell it.

>> No.9813782

Everyone has a price.
Even you.
To pretend you'd be entirely unwilling to part with your dress for any monetary amount is folly, especially considering that whatever other dress you'd want has its own monetary amount. And "open for ideas"? Well that just further points to you being unsettled.
Don't be so hasty, or quick to temper. You might be passing up a grand opportunity. Options are far more valuable than any single dress.

Shit, anons. I think I might be honest-to-god bipolar. I've had so many doctors tell me I'm depressed and put me on meds that did nothing or made me fat, but maybe they were wrong about the problem the whole time. I feel like an idiot, I have almost bankrupted myself on lolita at times, and then other times I won't even touch my lolita clothes because I feel like I don't deserve them. I don't have a psychiatrist at the moment and can't afford one right now, but maybe I can sell some brand and go see one in a few months.

I've been friends with a dude for like 3 years and I only recently learned he was married and living with his wife, even though I've been to his house before. Granted it's not like a super close friendship but they're just really private people.
What kind of world do you people live in that people getting divorced is degeneracy?
What country? I'm in France and I just recently realized that the con I thought was big for here but relatively small compared to US cons was actually one of the 5 largest worldwide. The convention scene is actually booming here, my local con just went from 2 to 3 days and opened a sister con later in the year, and I keep learning about new small events nearby I never knew existed. It's kind of cool, especially since I want to go into competing and hopefully guesting at cons.
Broken ventilation system? I was at a small con this weekend and the smell was okay in most of it but I took one breath at the door of the board game room and turned around immediately.

Dr Phil has some seriously good advice in this area - the relationship is only at stake if you put it at stake.

I am trying. It has taken me forever to save a paltry sum of money. I need more before I can move, and I've already sold most of my valuable possessions.

If you're like 30, then your time is basically up.
Any guy who's serious about having a family near the age of 30 genuinely looks for a younger woman, usually early 20's.

Sounds sketchy, but it's just as simple as this: you don't want a girl with baggage, like serious ex partners or, heaven forbid, another man's kids.
Any single girl, near the age of 30, will either be crazy, have serious emotional baggage or have kids - or any combination thereof.

Good feels:
I reserved my first brand new skirt from IW! I have some clothes from Second Child but buing things has never felt so good.

Bad things:
I gain 2kg in last week because I'm extremely stressed and I don't have time to eat properly.

I don't have to make sounds because it's not like my vagina is connected to my vocal cords but I like the idea that somebody can hear me when I'm playing with myself (this is just a fantasy though, I'm living with my bf in a house so my neighboors can't hear me). And that gives me better orgasms.

>> No.9815578


DA I also moan during masturbation because it helps me to imagine an actuall process of being fucked, and this way I feel hornier. Also

>I don't have to make sounds because it's not like my vagina is connected to my vocal cords

Seems like my vagina is connected in such way. I don't consider myself as lesbian, but female's moans have always been a big turn on for me. For this reason I like watching straight porn with realistic female orgasm. So yeah, it might sound funny, but sometimes I imagine another girl moaning out of orgasm.

Struggling with this as well currently! So far I've managed to get acquainted with a few people through license-specific meet-ups, since you're together for about an hour and you have a common interest all picked out for you. Striking a conversation is hard if you're really shy like myself, but you can push through and chat a bit about whatever you're cosplaying. Then exchange social media (I have cosplay cards I like to give to cosplayers I talk to or photographers who take my picture!), and if you interact with each other a few times, you're on the right track! I'm still working on the phase between that and an actual friendship so don't take this as gospel but once you manage to overcome shyness for five minutes and strike up a conversation you'll easily find common ground. Asking about how they made their costume is generally a safe bet, as is the thing they're cosplaying from. Not every person you talk to will become your best friend of course but you miss all the shots you don't take!

>> No.9815896

I've never had trouble with them before either. They're pretty fast and only had one issue with a flaky seller refusing to ship out the dress once. Otherwise they're clearly polite and friendly enough to get past Mercari and Fril sellers' shopping service aversion.

Honestly on all of my cosplay-related social media I just let people believe I'm a trap because I honestly don't like the idea of parading the fact that I'm trans (except I'm talking about it here, I know, I just need to vent). I'm just so tired because either way it feels like I'm lying.

From one trans man to another, do your thing bro. The whole idea of explaining your gender is weird and only something in English cosplay circles. I lived in japan and literally no one put their gender on twitter, IG, etc, even as cosplayers. Enjoy cosplay and remember that it’s for fun.

>> No.9816306

personally my dysphoria isnt triggered by female cosplays (because the emphasis is on trying to look as much like the character as possible and it feels entirely separate from my actual identity).

Since everyone's ranting their trans feels rn,
I identify as nonbinary and mostly do male cosplays because I feel much better about myself presenting as masculine, but I'm not "out" anywhere. I feel obligated to throw in my old female cosplays now and then to keep up cis appearences, but I never feel good in them anymore.

I love my comm, but sometimes I can be a bit grumpy, or some of the discourse gets on my nerves and I lose my temper a bit.

I'm working on just turning off my phone and ignoring the conversation when that happens, but I also want to apologise to the other girls.

Holy shit, I used to be interested in this but the way the aristasians took kawaii and lolita and turned it into something quasi-religious made me really uncomfortable.

I honestly don't know. One of the events is Yukai Fest, which is at a venue that doesn't smell badly, so I'll go to that one. Jigoku Style is the other event that day, and the last time I was there, it was ok, but the fucking dealer's room and gaming sector smelled like sweaty otakus and farts. Granted, every other time I went to their events, I didn't have this complaint, but I'm expecting a lot of people to go to the Jigoku Style. They invited youtubers (none of which I recognize) and so I'm not expecting the smell to get any better.

I want to put together a Mermaid Melody cosplay group but I feel like that would be really hard. It seems like it's one of those magical girl shows that was popular and then after a while everyone completely forgot about. I see Tokyo Mew Mew cosplayers every now and then and Cardcaptor Sakura cosplayers every now and then but the only Mermaid Melody cosplayer I ever see is one old guy who I've seen cosplay it at AWA occasionally. God bless that old guy.
