What tags do you guys use for coords and other Lolita stuff? I'm really conscious about not putting many tags on posts, but also it's weird to take what I think is a pretty nice photo of something (dress details, coord accessories etc) and it gets maybe 5 notes even though I use eglcommunity, lolitafashion and the brand tags.

I also post the dresses name or specific items name or brand like Lotv. But most importantly i wish more people tagged their dresses. There are so many dresses i own that dont have any worn photos on insta, tumblr amebo ect and its so frustrating.

>>8807047
Why be sparing with your tags? As long as they are all relevant I don't see a problem with being thorough with your tags

What photo editing apps do you guys use? I've been using Meitupic and Photogrid. Any apps with nice layouts for collages or nice borders?

I'm exactly the same as >>8807047 and I just feel like any more than 3 is tacky. I don't want my irl friends to think I'm obsessed with efame, but at the same time I get maybe 5 likes on pictures that would get loads on other accounts and it's upsetting because I want to feel like I'm actually participating in the community. I like plenty of things by others.

Just give in to your inner fame whore. Once you accept that you're hungry for attention, everything becomes easier.
>>
>>8807213
No.
>>
>>8807047
All I can think of is perhaps your photo is not as nice as YOU think it is and/or you're taking pics of items nobody really cares to see.
>>
>>8807193
People aren't going to find your photos on their own unless they are already getting a ton of likes. You either have to use tags or engage a lot of people by commenting and liking on their pictures. Once you get a critical mass of people liking your photos, then they will start getting suggested by Instagram to other users and people will find you through their Following notifications.
>>
>>8807193
I never tag with more than 4 and get pleanty of likes. A lot of the time I just tag with lolitafashion and get 30+ likes. What's more likely is that your coord and photo are not particularly amazing.
>>
>>8807193
>>8807172
>>8807047

Tag your coords! It's incredibly helpful to be able to find coordinates by looking up the print name. Instagram is an excellent resource for worn photos.
>>
>>8807193
nice entitlement
tag your pics or don't get likes. pick one.

maybe your pics are just shit.
>>
I used to follow a few of those cosplay sharing accounts, but noticed they keep sharing the same 8-12 cosplayers and photographers. Annoying, since you can't exactly say your doing the community a favor if its pretty much the same people over and over again.
>>
>>8807168
>I also post the dresses name or specific items name or brand like Lotv.

As the designer of Lotv I want to truly thank you for doing that. It's both very thoughtful and helpful for a small indie brand.

Since I've revealed myself I might as well post mine as well! I'm Lotvdesigns on IG an I mostly post lolita, nature (lots of mushrooms), and photos of custom orders.

Thank you anon. I'm talking about detail shots and stuff for lolita so I'm going to take your advice differently by instead really dissecting the images by popular IG lolitas. I already know my camera isn't amazing but there must be other things I'm missing.

it's a mix of things, also need to choose the right tags. i always choose weird / small tags cause i'm looking for specific people with similar interests,

No problem. I love seeing what they do with your designs especially stuff they have custom made! I hope more people start tagging it.

>>8807047
Also maybe follow more people? I dont have many followers maybe 2-300 and i follow around 500 so but from #lolitafashion,the brand name and the name piece im wearing i at least get 25-30 likes. granted those who do follow me are probably 70% lolitas because i keep it separate from my personal instagram

I post cosplay stuff mostly and ootds
>>
Do you gulls post your lolita/cosplay photos on one Instagram account along with your personal stuff? Or do you have a separate account just for that?
>>
>>8807603
I have a totally separate instagram for my cosplay/loli stuff. I share it to my tumblr, but not my facebook. The people Im friends with on FB are just a different crowd and most arent into cosplay or lolita.
>>
>>8807603
I save my personal stuff for facebook, it's not even that interesting anyway.
>>
>>8807603
Lolita is my clothes, it's just one account for me.
>>
Gonna add all y'all
My insta is alovelyspring.
Please excuse my newbie-ness. I am following that lolita challenge to get more into the fashion.

>>8807603
My insta is both... I'm pretty new with posting fashion things and I did not see a point in making a separate one.

Plus I keep it separate from FB, like another anon said, my friends on FB are not the type to understand my cooky fashion tastes.
>>
>>8807603
I wear lolita and himekaji. It's mostly outfit shots, selfies, cat pictures and I only have one. All my friends and family are aware of what I look like, it's not some secret? They don't have to like it/follow but plenty do.
>>
So if someone follows you and their account is private, would you follow them back? Why do people make their IG private? Most people I know who are set to private accept all requests to follow anyways.
>>
>>8807691
Followed bc dune
>>
>>8807930
I wouldn't.
I like knowing right away if I will like the content instead of waiting and then wondering why I'm seeing flat booty pics on my feed.
>>
>thelordcommander

I post mostly cosplay stuff and con adventurers
>>
>>8807603
I only have one account and it's full of all my hobbies (books, knitting, bjd, lolita) all instagrams are full of the persons hobbies. I follow family, friends and coworkers whos intrest vary from knife collecting, bug collecting, music, art, guns, cars etc. I'm not sure why I should have an instagram just for my hobbies seperate from the rest of my life? One of my favorite instagrams is my coworkers who has a fascination with miniature cats. Despite it not being my thing, i enjoy seeing her collection etc. We follow each other because we ware about each other and want to see each other lifes not nessesarily because we are in to the dame things. I think you're setting yourself up for a miserable life if you can't connect with people outside of your own interests.
>>
>>8808451
>think you're setting yourself up for a miserable life if you can't connect with people outside of your own interests.

I think you're underestimating the amount of autism on this board. people here have a hard time even liking an outfit outside of their own style. and like typical autist theyre not even intrested in having a conversation outside of their own intrests.

the autism likely effects their social networking profiles. Their inability to relate leaves them thinking others are the same as them. With them thinking that because they dont care about so and so's hobby, she doesnt care to see about mine.

personally the idea of having a separate IG for your hobbies and another for your "personal life" is odd. since for most their personal lives ARE their hobbies. I'm not sure what an IG outside of my hobbies would even consist of.
>>
>>8808451
>I think you're setting yourself up for a miserable life if you can't connect with people outside of your own interests.

I agree, the quickest way to drive a wedge between friends and family is hiding/not discussing your interests. IG has really made me closer to the people around me. I feel like Facebook is just for shitposting memes now. Most of my friends are more active on instagram. I follow a couple of coworkers and we've really become friends because of it I believe. Even though we are in to different things it gives us better insight in to each other and provides something to talk about.

>>8808527
I think it's more than just that. Kids today have never had a social networking site that is so personal and public at the same time. They didn't live through the era of MySpace where you had all your friends and a bunch of random people you think are cool and internet friends. They are most likely used to their Facebook containing their family and IRL friends and a tumblr to connect with strangers with common ground. The idea of both in one is new to them.

>I'm not sure what an IG outside of my hobbies would even consist of.

Yeah unless your idea of personal posts are booty shots I'm not sure why it should be kept separate. Aside from selfies, and "went out with @myfuckingfriend/family/boyfriend" most IG post are hobby related I think.

Even my most absolutely boring friends with nothing to post except, selfies memes and pics of their baby post outfit shots/ootd like once a month. I don't think my outfits deserve a separate instagram just because they're kinda crazy.
>>

Those are really sad breasts, did you get a bad bra fitting? 2nd one down far left, what happened?

>>8807603
I have two seperate accounts, one for my lolita/otome and the other for my costuming/cosplay.

>>8807930
I don't follow back if the account is private. I don't have to patience to wait and see if it is content I would enjoy seeing on my feed
>>

mine are on the same account which is why I don't feel comfortable posting as its not always jfash related.

It was a personal account five years ago when I first made it however I recently went back and deleted a bunch of old stuff. But since I picked back up after a two year (?) break, a lot of my followers are inactive or just don't care about my posts anymore.
I'd love to follow more seagulls! My feed is kinda dead.

What hashtags do you guys use?

I see a lot of people using #cosplayilluminati and #thecosplayalliance lately to increase their hits
>>
>>8807930
I have a private insta because I'm just a private person, I only allow irl friends to follow me. I just don't want random people to see what I post, since I post a lot of personal stuff in between the cosplay pics. I guess for a lot of people it defeats the point of cosplaying but idk /shrug
I followed almost everyone in this thread because ya'll total cuties.

>>8808527
You need to say what you actually mean instead of just using the word autism in its place.
>>
I'm nyanlolita23cosplay on Instagram. Normally I post my cosplay stuff, but I get OT sometimes too.
>>
>>8811679
Do you even know what autism is? Autism effects a persons ability to connect with other people, and obsessive interest are quite common. It's quite normal for an autist to have no interest or even the ability to hold a conversation outside of their obsessions. With that in mind, I understood perfectly what was said, what exactly are you confused about?

Your IG is so pretty, most certainly followed!

I also don't think my identification skills are good enough to be confident to eat wild mushrooms either. I also don't exactly love eating mushrooms. If I did I'd start with a puffball Mushroom as their poisoness look-a-likes are pretty easy to check for.

Still trying to figure out the best tags for lolita/jfash ootds, anyone got any pointers?
>>
>>8814810
>for lolita
>eglcommunity
>lolitafashion

For jfash, most people seem to use the general jfashion tag, and then tag the brands they're wearing. There doesn't seem to just be an overall jfash ootd tag.
>>
Are you all less likely to follow someone if their insta doesn't have a theme/consistent aesthetic? For example, if they post lots of stuff unrelated to the things you followed them for.
>>
>>8814823
I don't mind as long as the unrelated stuff doesn't become 90% of what they post or if they don't post a load of it in quick succession as to make it most of my ig feed. I guess I'm pretty lax about it because I know that I'm prone to posting off-theme stuff.

Yikes. That's only some autistic people. There's an entire spectrum. It's also not an easy diagnosis and takes lots of testing. You can't just assume people have it based on general assumptions.
My friends brother is fully autistic and has to live in a home and has zero capability to even have normal human recognition. When you look him in the eyes he looks past you kind of thing.
The other anon was using a definition of autism that was coined by 4chan. I'm not confused, I'm asking them to use a term like NEET or something instead if they can't actually explain what they mean and have to fall on track crutch of using 4chan memes that give unnecessary additional meanings to words.

What was said was explained perfectly well, I'm not sure where you get the idea that she didn't explain what she meant if you're not confused about what was said. Being a NEET has nothing to do with what she's talking about. So again, what exactly are you confused about?
