I think I fucked up my ClosetChild order.
I did the thing but paid with a card. Somehow I missed the PLEASE USE PAYPAL sign. I already contacted CC but haven't heard from them yet.

I ordered 2 days ago and haven't gotten my confirmation email yet. Are they just checking stock before pulling the money from my account? All the items I purchased are in my bought section and there is an order number and everything.
>>
>>8769076
Are the items you bought marked as "sold" on the site? I'm not sure what you can do other than keep trying to get in touch with them, sorry anon! Best of luck.
>>
>>8769078
Yes, everything is marked as sold. I have checked back regularly and nothing have been put back in stock.

>>8769087
Then I'd say if they don't get back in touch with you in a day or two, send them another message, definitely.

I want go buy a corset lolita skirt but i have an issue... I have IBS and things too tight on my waist are unconfortable, i needed to buy a size bigger or i have to avoid corset skirts? I like the bodyline Aterlier Pierrot replica. My waist is 71 cm.
>>
>>8769435
Then don't get the skirt...? Seems like simple logic if it has the chance of negatively impacting your health. Plus corseted skirts usually look tacky, imo.
>>
>>8769435
Dont wear a corset skirt. It isnt an issue of size, the whole concept is so that it is on the tight side to give in that look. It wont be like a real corset and you shoudlnt put a lot of pressure on that plastic boning but if you have a medical issue dont chance it.

can i incorporate lolita clothing (sweet, of course) into a fairy kei-esque style? i adore lolita, but im not quite ready to jump in, and i feel a lot more comfortable dressing in fairy kei!! but i dont want to do a sweet lolita piece injustice.
also, if i can, i would still need a petti, right? or no? sorry for all the questions. pic related, i know its not fairy kei but its cotton candy shop paired with a blouse that, imho, could be switched out with a nice cutsew and look just as nice!!
>>
>>8770047
Sure, just please don't call it Lolita. But you're probably going to get called an ita anyway.
>>
>>8770051
never!! I believe I know what is and isn't lolita from lurking and learning on here as well as other communities. i definitely wouldnt call it lolita.
i just love fairy kei so much and thought that acquiring a sweet piece would be a clever way to transition into lolita if i ever found the guts. in the meantime i would just make fairy coords and not try and pass it off as lolita, hehe. thank you for the answer
>>
>>8770047
You can, I've seen some great fairy kei outfits with lolita main pieces, just don't call it lolita and do wear a petticoat! Lolita pieces are designed to be worn with petticoats so they look bad without them!

Do used animu goods stores in Akiba or Nakano have pushes like Alpacassos? Maybe not the right board but I asked /a/ buyfags and they aren't helpful if you're not looking for plastic tits.

>>8770047
You can definitely do this, and it's not even that rare, really. Disagreeing with the other anon, though. Most of what you'll wear in fairy kei (salopettes, mini skirts, cutsew ops, etc) does not require a petti to look good and frequently won't even fit a petti properly.

I think it's so people can see what kinds of items they've had in the past to see what they can expect of future stock. You can see whether they get good condition or popular pieces and how often new pieces come in. I find it a lot more useful than just seeing nothing beacuse it's sold out.

I have two things of craft foam. One is covered with some layers of Plasti-dip and glossy paint and is convex. The other is a small, thin emblem that is "pointy" (i.e. parts of it come to a small point) and is pure unpainted craft foam.

Your bank/credit card company is probably automatically blocking the transaction for fraud detection purposes. Call them up and tell them it really is you making the purchase. They'll make a note and it should go through after that.
It happens to me sometimes, especially when I make multiple foreign purchases within a few days.

I think this is a dumb question.
Based on resale value and the fact that plus sized lolitas generally pay more for fitting things, could I get $50 over retail price for my BNWT and worn once for a JSK that is just way too large for me? The pricing is all over the place, but it's too big on me and I'm comparatively huge to the standard.

I've always loved them! From what I've heard about them, most lolitas hate them and think they're ugly/don't belong in lolita. I think they're mostly worn in fairy-kei & more casual cute fashions rather than lolita. Also I've heard they only look good on short (like 5 feet tall) + flat chested people. And that the lucky pack releases tend to be even shorter than normal salos. I don't know much about them either so I'm not even sure how true any of this is.
Anyone else have any more input?

Taller busty lolita here; exactly what the other gull said. They're really only meant for shorter, flat chested girls otherwise they look awful. I think they're cute as hell, though.

I'm looking to buy someone a gift card for some lollita clothing.. I'm not really knowledgable on this topic.. I want to do a gift card so she knows I care about her, versus just money. I don't know her measurements. She's losing weight, so a site with average weight to plus size would be great.

Oh, and I understand she enjoys the "sweet" style. So I think that's pink, feminine, cute stuff right?

Any recommendations would be great. She browses here from time to time so I thought it'd be a good place to ask.
>>
>>8772753
I know Angelic Pretty SF's website lets you purchase gift certificates, and sometimes their pieces can accommodate plus sizes, though it can vary. Even if the main pieces don't fit her she can use the money on accessories.

>>8772759

Hmm that might work. She seems to have a good amount of dresses, or works in progress. I don't think she has many accessories.. Thanks for the suggestion, I'll look into that site.

What is it with people who list items for sale when the damn thing is still with their SS? At least wait until it arrives so you can take the proof pictures. Or do they tell their SS's to forward the item directly to the buyer?

>>8772743
Wired headbows have wires inside them that allow you to adjust their shape and how they sit on your head, the headband itself is not adjustable.
Which headbows have to tried to wear so far? In my experience most of BTSSB's headbands are super tight and painful (except for the plastic ones) but IW's aren't so bad.
>>
>>8773372
I wore a couple from AP and BTSSB and have been avoiding them since. The AP ones dug into my head gradually but I just couldn't stand the BTSSB ones. Thanks for the tip about IW though, I might give one of theirs a shot if I see something I like.

You could probably just throw it in the wash and it be fine. Washing is an issue for weird materials and prints. Most stuff is like anything else.

Alright. I think if I use a garment bag and do it on gentle should be ok, and remove the waist ties to avoid getting wrapped or ripping the buttons off. It's the one from 2006 so I'm a bit worried about it.

I machine washed my tartan shirring princess JSK like every week back when I was a daily lolita in 2009, haha. It's a sturdy cotton dress, it'll handle it. Just don't wash it too hot, put on a gentle cycle with cooler water so you don't fade the black. Remove the waist-bow and waist-ties and put it in a garment bag if you want to be sure!

if you're worried, just wash it in cold water by hand gently. the non-print stuff that's one solid color generally isn't something to be as worried about, especially if it's something like what I'm assuming is cotton or poly or a mix of both. i use woolite gentle to handwash items.

Cosplay related mainly;

Glasses in cosplay - what's better, plano glass or lenses popped out? Plano obviously looks better IRL, but they're also a pain in the butt when it comes to photoshoots as they tend to be untreated and highly reflective...

My only straight answer is when it comes to characters who for whatever reason have one lens which you need glass in for, in which case you should have a plano for the plain eye.

Secret shop makes these in wine x offwhite. (I have them)

Shiny side is sticky side which is the side you'll be sticking the foam to.

Rough side is outside, it gets rougher when shaped so you need to prime and smooth it out.
>>
>>8776003
Go to online glasses shops
you can get planos with trated unfelacive glass pretty easily. Never ever have the lenses popped out else you'll look like a needy scene girl in 3d glasses

Roll the waistband, or get a rockabilly swing petti. Check how the dress sits on you first though

I was in a similar situation as you, found the pink salo for cheap and went with it even though I also love the lavender. I'd say get the pink if money is an issue but if it isn't and you don't mind paying the extra, get lav. Also if you're in a place where it's the middle of winter right now maybe take into account that you wont be able to wear it yet anyway so you might want to wait. Also candy sprinkle salo is pretty short so just be aware of that too. I'm 5 ft and the salo still goes to mid thigh on me. You can lengthen the straps but... I think it just looks weird when I do that. Anyway, good luck deciding!!

I'm buying the dress regardless but does anyone think this would be good for lolita? I wanna do a gothic coord with it but I'm not sure if it's the right shape or if the print's too busy. Should I just stick to trad goth/psychobilly with this?

It's been nearly 10 years so chances are she's left the fashion by now or might not have had/have an online fashion.

>>8780391
Try it on when you get it and see what it looks like in a lolita coordinate (with a petticoat, blouse, accessories, etc.). The print is a bit busy and probably not to everyone's tastes so you might get told it looks terrible even when coordinated properly but you never know, it might surprise you. You'll have to try to be sure.
>>
>>8780399
In that case I may save a lolita coord with it for Halloween since that's the time of year everyone can be ita as fuck and no one can say shit about it.

I just ordered this veil to wear with a couple of darker dresses I have, but I've really been stumped on what to wear it with on my head. Any suggestions?

I was thinking of some sort of flower crown, but I don't know. Do you think it's too plain to wear by itself?
>>
>>8780560
It is a little plain to wear by itself since its already kind of an OTT accessory, however, you don't have to go big with the flower crown if you don't want to.
A little chain over the forehead would be nice.

How does one know if there will be a MTO? About how long after a release or re-release is it announced? I really want chocolate rosette but I doubt I'll be able to get my hands on it even with the AP USA release.

>>8780864
There is no way to know when a brand will re-release anything or make it a MTO. We know that people can ask for one and they may decide to, but if they give in and when they do it is up to them. Many people did not expect HL to be rereleased despite the demand, and then no one really thought they would do 2 MTOs so soon after the 2nd release. Its up to them.
>>
>>8780864
If you want a MTO the best thing you can do is write directly to AP and encourage others to do the same, letting them know that there are enough customers and money to be made for it to be worth another run. Or pray that Chinese lolitas are compelled to do the same.

Is the Cosplay Queue Up video series any good? Their videos keep showing up on my youtube main page so I checked them out and am quite unsure. Example makeup tutorial https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PdfAcZKr_To

Holy shit anon, are you me? I've had 5 bad experiences (and 0 good) with Arda, but any time I share, people argue with me about how good they are and how they swear by Arda, so I don't share often. Here are the first three.
>first purchase at a con, bob wig with lady-gaga styled bow made of hair
>bob was so teased I couldn't do shit with it and couldn't fix it
>emailed, they weren't sure why it was teased, was not offered anything.
>second order for a friend, wig was very thin and not heat resistant (melted when curled on low setting)
>friend was pissed but didn't do anything about it
>third order was a wig for a cosplay, only site that had the sort-of correct color and I'm too lazy to do the ink dye method
>wig feels like it has been dipped in hairspray and is so teased I can see the wefts despite there being a ton of hair
>threw it away because I was so pissed and they wouldn't respond to my emails.
I use AnimeStuffStore/purple plum for cosplay. I used to use GLW, but now I use Lockshop for Lolita.

I have angelic pretty red socks and blouses. Anyone know if AP reds bleed when washed? They have white trim and I'm worried it'll emerge pink.

>>8776558
I've purchased 3 Arda wigs, the first 2 were dead-ends, the last one worked out okay.
I bought a Jareth to spike up which, for the life of me and every method that had always worked before, WOULD NOT style; followed by a Rocky that was so large it completely covers my ears when I put it on; lastly a Derek that, while still a little big on me, is actually a pretty nice wig. The only people I know who like Arda are girls with lots of thick hair that they need the large cap size for, or dudes with huge skulls.
>>
>>8781687
If anyone is interested! I put a color catcher in with the garments and while no bleeding happened to the whites on the clothing, the color catcher rubbed the color off the blouse in some places. Didn't expect that and I'm not sure if my blouse is salvageable. Use color catchers at your own risk.

Can you be too old to cosplay? I've been a weeb since I was a teenager but never cosplayed due to not having enough money or self-esteem. But now I'm almost done with college and found friends who want to cosplay. Since I know I'll just be starting out, I'm expecting my first few costumes to look like shit but I'd like to try it out. But I'll be applying to grad programs along with gap years so I'll be older than most people at cons once I get the ball rolling..

TLDR - is there a specific age where cosplaying can get weird? I guess I shouldn't really care if I'm doing such a niche hobby regardless but I'd like to hear some opinions.
>>
>>8782129
For me there isn't a weird age to cosplay, just gotta find the right character to work with your age (bonus if you look younger than your age) My community has an old lady around her sixties & she is hailed as a cosplay celebrity by local media.

They are like closest child. Second hand store, ships internationally. They seem to price their things a bit high for my taste but nothing scammy about it.

>>8782193
They started pricing higher in the last year or two, basically when more of the western community discovered them and international shipping became more of a routine thing. It's the same as closet child and maiden clothing, their shit was way cheaper pre-international shipping.

Ain't that the way of things. Thanks.
>>
>>8783673
A knit is a material that stretches and lining is a material used to line the inside of a garment, as the name implies. Which character is the cape for? Based on the character's background, you could use a wool, a moleskin, or some other material with a nice drape. However, I feel like the lining would be too thin on its own and the knit may stretch out over time, based on how the material gets put together and which way the stretch is going.

No. If you think you're too old for it, that's your own problem and no one else's.

My question is dumb and not even really lolita related. I made a paypal account in october to buy some small things off eBay, deposited some money to it from my main bank account manually every time I wanted to buy something. Last time I forgot to do that, but the order was confirmed and shipped anyway even though my paypal was supposed to be empty. I tried to deposit some money to my paypal right after my last order but there must have been a phase where my paypal was in debt between the 24th and the 28th of this month.

I'm confused and I have no idea how paypal works, but is it normal to be able to buy stuff even though your paypal is empty? Pic related.

Is Lolita Dresses Shop.com reliable? I'm trying to figure it out via Google but all I see are reviews from years ago that say it's a Milanoo front shop like My Lolita Dress. But I've ordered from My Lolita Dress several times with no problems, including ordering other Surface Spell dresses, so I don't know if these reviews are reliable or up-to-date. The negative reviews mention listing replicas and stolen photos under misleading terms without naming the brand they're stolen from, but this listing is pretty up-front about it being Surface Spell. Any seagulls have experience with Lolita Dresses Shop?

How do you know what hair color will look good on you? I want a light hair color, but everything looks wrong. I wore a yellow wig and I looked waay too pink. White shirts make me look dirty/grey. Light blue shirts make me look cheesy yellow. Are shirts different than hair in terms of colors looking good? I'm pretty sure I'm a cool or neutral cool undertone, leaning on very pale olive. I googled and it said ash blonde would look good, but all their pictures had women who were much tanner than me, and also looked ugly-pink. I wear the lightest makeup in just about every line, and I really want light hair, but I can't find the correct color. If it helps I used to have blonde hair as a child, that was red-blonde some years, and faded to dirty blonde with no blonde areas now.
>>
>>8788802
you might be overly critical of yourself. can you speak with a stylist?

i would think returning to a color you had as a child would not reflect badly on you, but i am not a professional. a lot of people who were blonde as children grow to have ash blonde or dark ash blonde hair, so perhaps aiming for something ashy would be good.

i thought my hair changed from blonde to brown but a stylist told me it was ash blonde now, and that the change is common. but i never had red-blonde like you so i dunno.
>>
>>8788812
I tried going to a stylist, but all 3 places I tried had stylists who knew nothing about face shapes, colors, etc. Nothing. Each one just gave me whatever cut and color they generically put on everyone, and it looked terrible. I've been brassy/overly-yellow blonde, a really ugly/dingy copper, and most often blue-black. Dark colors make me look a little gothic, but I greatly prefer that to looking pink.

Maybe it's because I live in a trashy part of Oakland that nearby stylists have no idea what do with my hair. I even had one of the stylists tell me that light-skinned white people can wear any hair color. (she did the ugly blonde). I thought I'd maybe go to San Francisco to a nicer salon, but I don't know how to find a good one. Reviews don't really encompass anything other than price/customer service since most people don't know what looks good on them.

My mom has a warm peach skin tone and warm medium blonde hair even now in her 50's, my dad has olive skin and had ashy blonde hair that turned dark brown in adulthood. My hair has done all the colors, though my skin has always been a very light version of my dad's. My hair right now is brown with a lot of copper in it, which makes me think my hair is in the warm tone? But my skin is very light and pink, which I think means cold undertone. Doesn't that mean my hair is already bad for my tone? Ughh color is so confusing.

So I've always bought my petticoats from Victoriangirldress on ebay, but now when I look it seems that all items have been pulled from their store.
What happened to them? and where should I get my petticoats now?

I've heard melikestea is the top seller, but looking into their site, I can't quite figure out how to order. Is everything MTO? do I have to pay to commission her just for a petti?

I bought another CP petti the other week and from comparing to my two year old one, it's still great quality. Slightly different fabric I think. but this is their 'daily' style one, if anything the fabric is a bit comfier than my old one but still gives plenty of poof.
>>
How do I know what colors look good on me?
>>
>>8792411
I believe melikestea has a google form that you fill in with what you want and in what size. it is essentially a commission but there shouldn't be a price difference iirc. she does have some ready-made ones usually, which you see at http://www.melikestea.com/p/in-stock.html (there's only hair ties on there right now, probably because she's on hiatus)

if you don't want to deal with that, you can go for bunny house or malco modes. I hear CP is pretty hit and miss so I wouldn't recommend them

is there any reason why brand bloomers and petticoats are so unpopular?
>>
>>8792592
I wouldnt say unpopular, just not needed when there are cheaper alternative that are just as good or better. Pettis from brands are expensive, why pay 100$ for an AP one when you can get one for half that which we know is good? Bloomers are the same idea, easy to make so cheap by others. Paying 60 for bloomers seems silly.
>>
>>8792592
mostly just price I suppose
I could whip up a pair of bloomers from material I already own in half a day (with pattern drafting and all), costing maybe 10-15$ at most, while brand bloomers go for 50$ and up
same with petticoats - brand is 80$ and up, melikestea's custom sized pettis start from around 25$ (for the scratchy tulle ones, but still)

speaking of which, any MLT petti recommendations? I'd really appreciate a petti that can be used for both bell and A-line, is the hybrid one meant for that or? there's no description on their differences that I could find.

You're a hopeless cause, if your hair is blue black now, there's no going back unless you shave it off.

who do you think we are, leddit?

iirc, it's pretty hard to dye synthetics because of the nature of the fibers, but there might be dye somewhere that's specifically for polyester.

Use Ritz Dye More.
It has to be Dye More or else it won't work.

everyone and their mother is creaming themselves over these melikestea petticoats, but I saw 2 tulle petticoats and couldn't believe how awful they looked. perhaps the organza or voile versions are nicer, but there are barely photos on the site.

Is SHOUT color catching sheets really work? I have this lolita dress that when I soaked in water started bleeding red. It's a pink dress with red strawberries on it. I've watched my dresses in the laundr\y machine before. Just wondering if anyone has experience, thank you.

My boyfriend bought me surface spell's dusk library from mylolitadress last Christmas (2014). Almost had a heart attack because I was afraid it was a Milanoo front- also had instructed boyfriend how to use taobao. Did some research and checked the dress when I received it. Definitley a taobao reseller (I have another surface spell dress from taobao). I can voach specifically for this listing as well.

tulle pettis are practically always shit, yes. it's unfortunate that she doesn't have pics up for most voile/organza stuff, but there's so much good rep for her and I don't think I've heard a single person complain about their pettis from her. I just want to go for her because MM would mean massive shipping costs for me, I guess BH is my other alternative here..

AFAIK, no. I've purchased twice from them and I don't think they ever asked me for a SSN. I know of a few cosplayers that also use Uniqso for lenses and have sponsor links that'll give you a discount if you look around.

That seems appropriate. I painted 3 coats of black paint (2+touchups) on this pair of boots and it took up maybe an 8th of my four ounce bottle.
>>
>>8795393
>>8795467
keep in mind it'll be different depending on the starting and end colours though, you might need more coats (trying to cover black with pink as opposed to covering pink with black for example)

Also thanks for posting that anon, you were the one who bought those boots from the big bodyline sale with intent to paint, right? i'd been wondering how they turned out; looks good!

Is WeLoveColors really the only source for finding gloves of specific colours like pic related? I'm located in Canada and really don't want to deal with paying upwards of $30 CAD just to get a single pair of gloves shipped to me

It's a commercially available fabric. Search for "harajuku dolls fabric" on Etsy and the like.

Should I sew my own maid cafe dress? Or just buy one. I'm worried if I buy one online that it will be shitty quality and I won't like the way it fits or something.

I've ordered a package from buyee which has finally made its way here but on the tracking it's been marked as 'retained' in Coventry since the 23rd of December. I haven't been home in that time until today but my boyfriend says no one's left any calling cards or anything. What now?
Should I just call Parcelforce (they're mentioned in the previous steps of the tracking, not sure who has the package now) with only the tracking number?

I ordered a dress from Closet Child, and when I checked the tracking number on usps, it said the package got returned back to the seller because I wasn't here for the package to be delivered. I'm freaking out because I was home that day and I didn't hear a thing from the post office or even a door knock. Now I'm worried I'll be blacklisted from CC. I do not want to lose my dream dress I've spent months saving up for! Do I email Closet Child? Go to the post office tomorrow morning? Help!
>>
>>8797274
Usually packages get sent back to the post office for a couple days before being returned back to the seller. If this was the first delivery attempt it should be at the post office. The mail carrier should have left a pink "We Missed You!" slip, take that to the post office tomorrow or maybe just the tracking number to see what you can do.
>>
>>8797281
Unfortunately I didn't get any kind of slip, and the site tells me they tried reaching me on the 22nd of December. I'm worried I'll be too late to pick it up.

I hardly ever see Victorian Maiden for sale, is that because it's rare and expensive or because it's bad quality?

Update: I managed to pick it up this morning and it's safe in my hands.

>>8797804
it's about as expensive as every other usual japanese brand (~300USD) but they do very limited runs/short reservation periods.
also their sizes aren't as friendly as they rarely have any kind of shirring

Yes, it's the whole set in lavender. Google translate could have told you that, anon.

So, I kind of want to cosplay a non-human character-- to be specific, Bijou from Hamtaro because I thought it'd be a cute, simple cosplay to go as Bijou and my SO goes as Boss. (And, the fact that I have a little hamster I named Bijou, too, did help influence this.)

How do people generally cosplay non-human characters? Find a gijinka that they like and go off of that or make their own?
>>
>>8798909
it really depends, for bijou i think she's super easy, maybe reference animal crossing gijinkas? going off an existing design is fine but you can certainly make one yourself if you're inspired.
>>
>>8798933
That's actually a great idea, thanks! I wouldn't have thought to check out AC gijinkas for inspiration. The top part would be easy, a white wig tied into pig tails with the blue ribbons, white bear ears-- I'd just get stumped on what she's actually wearing.

Maybe I could shove lolita into it, and wear a shiro coord with blue accents + the top part. Bijou seems like she'd wear lolita, anyways, if she was a person.. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Probably won't, but I'll likely consider it.

Maybe try making a sunflower seed purse?

You must have been out of the game for quite some time if the last place you bought from was In the Starlight, hahah
Taobao stores with large sizes or custom sizing options will be your best bet for the best quality for your money. There are tons of lists of taobao stores around, you could probably find one that lists stores with custom sizing by googling "taobao lolita custom size" or something.

None. Retro dresses are not Lolita dresses.

Could anyone answer this, please?

>>8799781
It may be sligtly too big, but generally thats pretty normal
>>
>>8799440
so it's not really lolita. Try it with a high-necked lace blouse. I disagree with >>8799759 I think that there are some retro dresses that can be lolita, but they have to be more old hollywood and much lacier and more modest than most rockabilly dresses. The dress you pictured can't hold the kind of petti you would want to shape it.

Ok this is going to sound really stupid.

Could someone tell me a good video/movie editing software I can buy that has...filters like instagram has and such? Is that stupid? I just feel really ugly even if the lighting is changed.

The closest I've ever used is Windows movie maker and I'm looking to buy something that has filters and something easy for a person like me to use, someone like me who isn't officially educated in video photography.

I wouldn't advise it unless your hair is naturally light. Bleaching one side of your head is going to change its texture and you'll end up looking silly.
>>
>>8799440
While it's true there are some cute retro lolita coords out there they're always lolita made to look retro not retro made to look lolita.

Trying to repurpose retro clothing as lolita is a mistake many itas have made and I wouldn't go there.

Do you wear an A-line petticoat under a JSK like Dream Sky/Cosmic Sailor (idk what that type of JSK is called)?

No they don't. You can buy directly and ship through Tenso or use a SS. Don't know about FJ, but buyee works with Rakuten.
