New Ita Thread, last one died.
There is nothing about this that looks good.
I was a little sad after a hiatus from cgl to not see an ita thread tonight.
Are you the same person who was going on a power trip wanting your own comm and throwing a tantrum because you aren't a mod? If so you can fuck right off J, I am so tired of your two-faced bullshit.
"OTT classic" AKA frumpy goodwill wedding dress
why is it a part of me saying its a replica and that's why it got posted here then there's a part of me saying that if it is real I would be an ass for not noticing the difference between the two.
I was going through the Moitie sales page and found this gem.
holy shit i just realized what's going on...
I thought replica too. But girl is also selling quite a bit of Moitie that I think this is a case of " I own brand so it looks fab with any thing since its brand".
I also think the corset might be one of the cinchers Moitie made. Picture is too bad to really tell tho.
I'm just browsing Google for co-rds with some dresses and finding some good shit man.
Right is okay I guess but the left is all wrong. Probably nitpick but I think it's tacky AF.
left girl's headdress is awesome.
the biggest issue are the shoes for me.
she also should have a better petticoat and probably remove that blue cape but other than that its fine.
i like her hair&headdress way more than right ones.
I'm gonna avoid ragging on body types. So here's some shit they're pulling that looks bad on anyone:
>terrible shoe decision on the left
>both could stand to get some tights
>glasses don't match style at all
But I like the dress, when did I say otherwise? It's just that you can achieve your dream with a few days/ weeks looking at japanese auctions and $40-70
They sound like a noob hopping on the oldschool trend.
Same anon that asked the question. I was paying more attention to the fabric (it looked too muddy and the diamonds look less defiant) and the detailing of the fabric than the lace since I couldn't get a good detail pic of the lace from the authentic AP
Left has skin like mine. Very thin, but looks like her leg hair is dark. I can't go out and show my legs without fake tan
Or I can get a wax a day beforehand and hope I dodge crazy red spots.
From the neck down it's not exactly good but still okay, but everything going on on her head is terrible. Gross frizzy matted wig that hardly even resembles human hair anymore, makeup that looks several days old and a random piece of fringed cloth that looks like it may once have been part of a scarf just plopped on her head because idk she couldn't find her real headdress anywhere?
It's so weird to me because she could have looked fine, but then she chose to put that frumpy nonsense on her head. Why?
Apparently adding the magic word ~casual~ to lolita means you can do whatever you want.
I think it can be cute she just poorly executed it. It also diner help that the wig looks done and her makeup is lacking. She's got a dramatic head piece but the drama halls flat with her wig and makeup.
Honestly jealous of her hair and that she's one of those people that can wear striped shirts without looking like a moron
>video is tutorial/sew along
>no pattern. lack of forethought in design
>fit is wobbly and atrocious
>construction is messy. Lace is unevenly applied
>"Thx for watching I hope I could help you" at the end of the video
Okay so I know I'm being a big meanie sourpuss here but why do people who have still yet to actually MASTER THE FUCKING CRAFT think that they can guide others along?
Wow, salty cunt-chan, your desire to deliver crit is so intense you have to take photos from the comm/people's personal pages. Give yourself a pat on the back. :^)
I get it when people repost shit they find on CoF, but this just isn't cool bruh.
This is so mesmerizing for some reason? Like the stripes of the shirt and the stripes of the socks and shoes it feels like my eyes are playing tricks on me.
If the shirt was in a different color I'd love it even more
Lmao, I don't know what kind of shitty comm you're in, but we're a small comm and everyone knows everyone. Posting people you personally know to ita threads is bad form, plain and simple.
This shit on my comm page. I'm glad I went lone lolita. Where are the mods? Don't you need at least one full proper coord to join?
Sorry, should have elaborated. In my comm you need to post a photo of you wearing Lolita and need at least one coord. Apparently these count as a coord. It used to be a such a good comm and Everyone was so well dressed but now the rules are lax and the mods are older/moving on so the comm is slowly filling up with itas and the well dressed ones are leaving or wearing it outside of the comm with friends instead. There aren't as many well dressed lolitas for the newbies to look up to, so slowly it's just getting worse and worse. I probably sound like a bitch but it just makes me sad...
Okay so your comm is tiny. It's not rare when your comm is 300+ and not everyone gets along. I'm not saying it's not in bad form, I'm just saying it's not rare. Stop being so special.
Wow that's freaking harsh. She just wanted to join the comm and she got posted here for it. Not saying it's not ita but I feel bad for her, and I'd run from the comm if this was my first experience.
don't join if you're too new to know you need to have a goddamn petti. I got my first OP last week and I haven't posted myself anywhere yet because I don't have a petti; if this chick claims she's been wearing for a year and doesn't have one she's fucking beyond hope for me
it's ita as hell, and she posted it into an open space. people will judge, some will just do it louder than others.
what even? Who would think that a baggy argyle sweater would look good with CDC?
People like you are the reason why I am a lone lolita. I have seen people from my com posted here and apparently it was an issue and the mods had to do a whole post about not stealing com pictures.
>don't join if you're too new
>I got my first OP last week
This goes for you too. You're too new to join because you're being a bitch to this girl for no reason and stirring up petty drama. It's not like she's a walking Hot Topic nightmare. She got her first pieces and she's excited about them. T.b.h. I'd rather hang out with her than you, she's still fresh enough to take direction well whereas you're a stuck up cunt who thinks you know everything because you post on /cgl/.
>stirring up drama
it's an ita thread, what the fuck do you expect. it's not going to be a hugbox. if any of the girls posted showed up and asked for advice I'd be more than happy to provide some.
also, not everyone rushes into this shit headfirst; I've been doing research and waiting to get away from my shitty parents for several years. a petticoat is literally the first thing you should learn about when you start getting into details of the fashion, and the only excuse I can understand for not having one is 'it's in the mail'.
I'm completely fine with people who haven't had a chance to get accessories or shoes yet but goddamn, it's the fucking petti. it's the one thing that makes it into lolita. this is being called lolita, and it's clearly not following the few rules there are, so it's ita. moreover, this girl claims she's been wearing for *a year*. if she hasn't realised there's something wrong yet, she's either too much of a special snowflake to see the error in her ways or willfully ignorant.
This is my comm... >.>
I don't think you need a full coord to join though. When I started I didn't have everything I needed, but that's why I went to meets; to learn. Also to meet people and have fun but you don't need to be so harsh.
This rule is literally to stop creeps from joining though. All you need is a photo of you "wearing lolita", a full coord isn't required and if you go to a meet first it's even more lax.
I'm still pretty new but compared to some of the shit I see on this thread they're pretty well-dressed.
You're a noob too, nobody wants your advice. I hate when newbies think that lolita is all about drama and being a shit person, and promptly start to perpetuate that stereotype themselves the second they get a goddamn petticoat.
You have a real bitch in that comm, but I hope that newbie finds decent people to steer her in the right direction. It's not like she posted that to CoF thinking it's good.
Yeah, there are lots of nice people in our comm who she can talk to.
The thing is, she didn't even post that to cof. It was posted to our private comm page. A lot of people posted like this to introduce themselves. It definitely wasn't to show off.
I think this is really cute? Like the stripes on the shirt with the stripes on the socks/shoes. And the shirt matches with the striped donut, and the bear scarf with the bear on the print?
Did I say it needed to be a hugbox? No. I said it wasn't really ita because she was just happy about buying pieces she liked. If you weren't a retarded newfag you would realize that like >>8810355 said, the "photo in lolita" requirement is just to prevent ageplay creepers looking for sissies. If she were wearing her new skirt with a t-shirt and no petti to a meet, it would be ita. But she's just standing in her house and submitting a photo to join the comm. Have fun being a backstabbing cunt with no friends while she gains popularity for her enthusiasm and friendliness. Maybe shitposting on cgl will make you feel better...but probably not.
I'm sorry but this us all I can think of.
My comm too...<.<
According to the rules you have to provide a photo when you request to join (atleast when I did) in a "lolita outfit", which is quite vague, and then you've gotta do that intro post...
Why are you such a salty bitch? She's clearly new, just starting a wardrobe, and probably wants to join to meet other lolitas, who will inevitably give her some nice advice.
People like you are cancerous to comms and bad for new blood. Literally no one wants you.
>I'm not saying it's not in bad form, I'm just saying it's not rare.
Then we basically agree! The reason why I'm salty enough to call it out is because it's been a recurring issue within the comm and for many members it's a question of privacy and safety.
For example, I have an abusive family member I'm trying to avoid and they know I go on /cgl/. All my facebook photos are set to friends only and anything else I make sure I'm untagged, my profile is private, etc. etc. All that doesn't mean shit when someone takes photos from the comm page and posts them here, that's the last fucking thing I need.
I want this to sink in through their thick drama mongering skull, that's all. Or maybe they'll just see this and drink my tears. Eh. Either way they'll know this shit ain't gonna fly in our comm.
Sage for derailment and I'll just salt my way out of here.
The bottom part looks like a folkloric dance skirts.
Fresh from gorgeouspluslolita on tumblr. I swear they'll reblog anyone these days. This bustle is just hideous.
OP apparently wore this to work. Yuck.
Holy shit, if she did that's insane, she added almost a whole foot on fabric onto the dress. Jesus, at that point you need to realize you're a fatass and need to lose the fucking weight..
This outfit could be salvaged with a proper blouse and petticoat and would really shine with a better hairstyle and accessories.
This kind of ita always makes me sad, they could be so much better with so little effort
Ok it's 1:30 am and I can't sleep after stumbling upon a poster for a local convention featuring what I can only describe as an ita with capital I.
>Shiny satin dress with a black petti showing underneath, no blouse, bright red wig, and black combat boots.
I won't post pictures because I live in a small town and I'm kinda paranoid.
Is there a way to educate the organizers, and perhaps the model, as to what lolita really is and how it should look like without coming off as an ~elitist bitch~?
If this is what she has and she's a newbie, good for her. I bought a really crappy Bodyline dress as my first OP and posted about it. In hindsight it was silly of me to do that since I was just excited to finally own any dress, and Im sure this girl felt the samw. She has potential. Take your salty ass elsewhere.
IT CAN BE DONE, DAMMIT
Arthael's meta steampunk coord was great too. Like with bittersweet/pastelgoth/creepycute these CAN work with lolita but 90% of people don't have have the balls/means/vision/skill to do it properly
Try asking if they were aiming for lolita fashion in the first place (not questioning you or anything, it's just a somewhat more polite way to approach the matter), and add that if they were, then that specific outfit isn't a good example of what lolita is. You can mention that you wear lolita yourself and you're concerned about misrepresentation of the fashion if the situation calls for it (that is, if they insist that it is lolita and they know what they're doing). Depends on how they respond to it (if at all), really, because if they insist that they're right or call you an elitist bitch then there's not much you can do about it beyond ignoring it.
Middle is cute, right is cute except that bow is the wrong fucking color and she should wear a white one anyway for balance. Left needs to learn what lolita is and stop trying to sew garbage
Ok so I replied with something very similar to what you wrote. Tbh I dont think the organizers care about displaying "accurate" lolita fashion and most likely will not reply to my comment.
I'd honestly be surprised if they did care. Like I said, if they don't budge then just try to ignore it (at least that's what I'd do if I were you because I doubt there's anything else you can do about it).
A sports bra/binder and an iron would make this so much better. If she wears this with a chiffon blouse and does her hair she'll look cute. Unfortunately, the bodice is trying to run away and that colour+that face make her look like a giant ham.
so rori desu
these gave me so many laughs, sorry
I want that room. Anyway the coord is not that bad, i would change the shoes for something more feminine and perhaps a different hairstyle that actually looks good on her. Aslo
>mixing gold and silver
That's not okay, either pick one or another.
I think that is her bra is what appears to be pink. It looks to be showing through. If you look at her breast on the right side of the photo you can see what appears to be an outline of the bra. Someone needs to get her into an actual lingerie store. Her boobs need some support. This a shame she has such a cute smile.
Why the fuck are you even thinking about something like someone's queefs? Wtf is wrong with you? Not to mention on coyld consider her slim vompared to the morbidly obeast hambeasts that have been posted in here before.
