Ivory isn't that difficult to find. The classic brands use it very often, I know IW have released blouses that can work with gothic too like their nun/choir blouses, for example. And this is less common to find but I've bought a Moitie blouse once that turned out to be ivory rather than white or off white, so that's also an option.

>> No.9892748

Everything is most flattering on normal-sized people and my guess is that fat girls flock to it because of the generous shirring or free waist, depending on the cut. They’re probably used to lolita being uncomfortable so they hardly even notice anymore.

Their fees are like this, yes. They list their fees on their website, you should've checked first.
I've found Tenshi to be more expensive than this so I use her only for in-store purchases that I really must have, which doesn't happen often. Likewise, I only use Japonica when I absolutely must, because my regular ss can't buy from every site.

>> No.9893630

I own 2 cage skirts from them, a bell shaped one and an A-line one and they are of good quality considering the price.

They don't use real steel wire though. On the plus side you can fold them, so they are ideal for travelling. But the shape can bend if you store heavy stuff on them or if you don't fold them correctly. otherwise they retain their shape, no matter how heavy the fabric.

I'm not trying to sound rude, but this information would only be relevant if you're asking something related to your gender. Using gloves is not related. Women are not born with these knowledges, so no need to state that you're a boy.

It's like going to a /v/ and saying "hmm... girl here... is Tetris a nice game?". It makes no difference and make it looks like you're asking for attention.

if you're new, don't start out with witch-y outfit. it will likely just be cosumey. try a basic sweet outfit, and then maybe add on witch inspired things. however, if youre adamant, just stick to gothic witchy stuff and don't try to incorporate sweet like this girl has, since it's hard to pull off for a newcomer. Gothic, just black is fine.
If you have the money and the size, antique beast has really nice "witchy" gothic stuff. there's some available second hand but it's not that expensive to buy direct. That's the only brand i can think of that puts out consistent, not tacky, witchy stuff. There's also a few dresses on taobao which pass as witchy but make sure to look up reviews and ask around.

It's a common theme for Halloween, so if you look up Halloween releases you can find brand photoshoots for them. Alternatively, if you have some way to look up coords by timeline you can check the ones that pop up around Halloween, there's various different takes on it.

The Kanji in this photo says 薔薇の聖堂 (Bara no Seidō), which can be translated as (Confucian) Temple of Roses, Church of Roses or Sanctuary of Roses. (The last two would be more logical, but I added the first one to explain were the confucius part comes from in one of you search results.) I don’t know which translation would be the best, but I would personally go for Church of Roses based on the print.

It's a show, a part of his "aesthetic" if you will. Afaik he doesn't talk because he's very shy, and I do think his use of gestures as communication is silly but it's one of the things that's made him iconic, at least in my opinion.

They design alongside Japanese trends and that is another huge factor. High waist stuff looks great on me and my friends.

Which range of measurements Marie Magdalene dresses with corset lacing (but without shirring) can fit?
I'm tall and have a 95 cm bust and 75 cm waist. I can still fit into clothing few cm smaller than my actual measurements without it looking bad, since most of my large measurements come from a large ribcage.
I'm worried about having something too tight at the waist that prevents me to breathe properly (and make me faint).

I mean, I came into lolita for Marie Magdalene, discovered it was too small for me, then became an AP fangirl, and now I'm going back to the roots.

I agree about variety, I've been throwing so much money at baby recently since they're smart enough to release at least 2-3 dress cuts and a skirt for most releases. The only thing AP has over Baby to me right now is the fact their dresses have pockets.

I don't really even care that much about high waist vs low waist, I just want to see something new from AP. I know lolita generally isn't very diverse in terms of pattern drafting, but would it kill AP to change up some little details, try different shaped sleeves, maybe different skirt lengths, overlays?

Yeah, I'm starting to think it's this as well. I can believe it a handful of years ago when they were doing a lot of high-waists in a row but they've been remarkably good about it last year and this year, so I don't get why people are screaming like dying cats everytime there's a high-waist release, but go absolutely silent when there's a normal waist release. You'd think they'd be creaming all over themselves, or at least saying they don't like the print but no, we only get complainers when there's a high waist, and then normal waist releases simply get ignored.


This argument would've worked better if they didn't literally just release a normal waist print last week, along with a salopette cut.

Did you even read the first part? Some cuts can make you look fatter even if you're skinny.

Is this made from real silk or something? It looks really underwhelming for $2000. Also that sad corset in the front...

I wonder how many hours it takes to make one

This is pretty, but doesn't look like it's worth 200k yen.
It makes me sad, there's some JetJ solids I would love to own that I'll probably never see secondhand, and JetJ is actually doing a few re-releases here and there so they might actually be available again, but they've already gotten into the habit of charging these ridiculous prices.

Seriously, what happened to JetJ? Did they just wake up one day a few years ago and say "actually fuck making nice dresses, they'll buy anything"?

Tell me, is Karmisse on Lacemarket scalping that MMM Bed Skirt she won from Wunderwelt? Or is shipping and customs really so high in Finland that the 100$ mark up of the item is still less than what she supposedly paid for?

>> No.9899679

This is hilarious especially considering the amount of Westerners that worship taobao indie brands. Meanwhile lolitas buying and supporting Japanese brands are "supporting Chinese consumer culture" - what are they supposed to do with their money, burn it? Not support your favorite brands? Delusional.

>> No.9899683

I think she's a scalper. She buys up super cheap MMM and then immediately puts it back up for sale at a markup.

>> No.9899685

Taobao brands aren't even indie most of the time. Big taobao stores like Infanta and Soufflesong definitely aren't. I hate when poorfag westerners act haughty for "supporting small indie brands!1!1!!!" vs buying brand when they actually aren't.

I already had that feeling. Many items she sells always look so familiar to me, plus EMS shipping+Customs to my country would have still been less than that mark up and we have one of the highest custom rates in the EU.

NAYRT but I find this quite sad, and I don't mean for that to sound mocking/rude. It just seems like you never had anyone to teach you how to go shopping, finding what works/doesn't work for your body.

Honestly since it sounds like you are starting from the beginning of your "how to shop for clothes as a woman" journey, I would recommend downloading some episodes of What Not To Wear. It's normie clothing and the fashion is out of date, but that show will teach you how different cuts and lengths of clothes can flatter you (or not).

I know this thread is almost dead, but I wanted some quick opinions. I want to casually make a few lolita accessories soon and list them on Etsy to see how I like selling things. However, I'd like some input on which colors I should offer. What are the colors of your favorite main pieces, or which colors do you like to pick out best for accessories?

>> No.9900155

Ivory/white/gold is what I tend to go for in terms of accessories since I have a pale classic/hime wardrobe.

>> No.9900163

I like pops of color in my accessories, but I find that the stuff I spend the most on has a base color that matches my wardrobe.
Are you doing felted work?

It's always nice when people sell unique accessories on etsy, stuff that coordinates with less popular coords, and simple one color accessories are also nice.

Common colours really quickly:
- pastel pink, blue, lavender for sweet -- note that pink and lavender are notoriously difficult to find the right shade to match AP/btssb
- navy blue and wine red, again note that these are kind of specific, non-lolita places sometimes call it "dark blue" and then have a much darker "navy blue" that won't match.
- black

If you can do metallics instead of matte colours, gold and silver are also pretty good neutral colours that go with a lot of dresses.

I'd do some homework and check the market first. If you're just going to make a bunch of simple bows they're already available off Aliexpress at 30 bows for $5.

>> No.9900177

Black > bone/Ivory > chocolate brown
Metal preference is antique bronze > silver
I end up with a lot of bright gold since that's what people like to make things with, but there really aren't enough bronze used.

Oh boy another week with no secrets. Now we are going to hear the bawling about how lolita is dying because secrets where not posted.

Has anyone else been having trouble with Japonica Market recently? I swear they've hired a brain dead staff member, I've never had them have so much trouble with my order before. They've delayed every single fucking time asking obvious questions and ignoring my notes and giving me mini heart attacks that the shit I'm trying to order is going to sell out while they keep repeating their questions I've already answered. Plus sending six of the same email when it's the middle of the fucking night here and I'm most likely asleep.

Maybe if more people posted, they'd do them faster? But I agree, if they don't want to they should find new people.

I have secrets I want to submit but I can’t get the submission to work since I upgraded to the new IOS. My close friends who have android are also having the same issues from their phones. Maybe that’s why people are not submitting? It’s also finals season and people are busy. It does get a little slow around this time of the year. But now that school is out, maybe we will get good summer drama to talk about.

I mean, it's nice, but not $2000 nice. They've put out nicer dresses for cheaper unless I'm missing out on some couture shit.

Hi, another Etsy accessory person here. Pink, white, gold, silver, black are your basics. I've been really surprised at how much people love lavender. Don't be afraid to do some odder color combinations though. I did a black x gold of a tea themed peice and my artist friends told me it wouldn't sell well if I did it gold instead of silver but it's been way outselling the ivory x silver set.

People also tend to gravitate to the things that are more unique and have had more work out into them, so sometimes those really weird colors work do better.

Tldr: have the staple colors, dont forget lavender, and then do whatever weird colors you want to

Nayrt but what is the non-lolita/ita market like, anyway? Do you think it’s profitable? Years ago I’d often see weebs and mallgoths spend inordinate amounts of money on ita crap at cons just because it was omg rorita!!1 but they must have discovered AliExpress/Taobao by now, right?

Thanks so much for the input, this is really helpful! I have no plans for hair bows; to make a high-quality one by hand at home can actually be quite work intensive and you can buy them in just about any color nowadays.
If it helps, I looked up "lolita bow" and found a lot of stuff like this. She's selling it for $7 USD and has over 500 reviews and a decent rating. Seems like there's a big sissy market over there too, so you can always make some hideous chokers too I guess.
Thank you, but I was asking about colors. Do you have a favorite color to coordinate with?
