>>8854625 no, i am getting an ad for "Cosmetics" though.
honestly it would be a cool idea for gulls to buy ad space on 4chan, i am more likely to support a gull business, especially if they are active here and post WIPs and such. a bunch of gulls bought from Hello Bones Jones recently when she posted her stuff to an indie thread, if i am thinking of the right person
A seller has used someone else's proof picture in their listing, when I brought it up they cited 'poor camera quality' as their reason why but failed to mention this in their listing. They have no feedback on LM though their external non-lolita feedback (ebay) is fine (had to request this). Despite having their country of residence listed in one area, their ebay is for another country and their postage quotes were from another's postal service.
Am I being paranoid? I feel quite rude asking her for more pictures with one including her user name and item, since people using proof pictures that they didn't take is usually a no-no, but I'd rather be safe than sorry.
>>8854774 nah that sounds sketchy as hell anon, there's no good reason to use someone else's proof picture as your own. it's called a proof picture for a reason. contact whatever mod possible and if it's LM maybe ask LSE mods if you can post a warning on there or something. (cause LM mods have been totally absent as of late apparently)
What is this type of top called (the tank top looking part specifically)? I have a few skirts that I want to have the illusion of being a jsk, so I looked up bustier +different lolita words for inspiration, but I'm just getting lingerie. This was the only actual shirt I saw, but it's an actual shirt, not a fake jsk top. These are bustiers right? Or, are there any brands with something similar that I can look for?
>>8854818 Baby/AatP, IW, and Meta have all made them pretty regularly. I can't think of any that AP has done recently, but they probably exist.
As for off/indie brands, Anna House used to do them in cotton as "sleeveless blouses" sometimes, and I think that F+F has done quite a few as well. I personally have three from AatP, two from Baby, one from IW, one from Excentrique, and two from Meta, and the ones I like best are the AatP ones. The Meta ones are more comfortable, but not as flattering/convincing as a "JSK Top" when paired with a skirt.
Funny story, I thought my debit card number was stolen and was freaking out. Turns out either my bank or Paypal translates poorly. They labeled the transaction with "ZHU BEIBI-,ZASUTA-ZUSHAINBURAITO/I". If only international customers use Paypal, why put it in Japanese?
>>8855125 I would say to watch for certain colors. I usually buy the medium/light blonde mix or whatever and the strands are really nice and pretty, but i once bought one of their strawberries and cream colored wigs and it was total shit. It honestly is a hit or a miss. I much prefer them to Lockshop though.
>>8855165 search them on FB, they have 2 different facebook pages. I think they said they got locked out of the other one somehow or something like that but yeah there's 2. they're definitely still in business cause I literally just ordered a blouse from them like a month ago
I'm so stressed about my first big sale. Buyer says there is orange makeup stains on the collar. There was nothing when I sent it out, and going over my proof picture I took before shipping, I don't see any stains! She claims it might be makeup, but I don't wear any makeup on my neck at all, and my skin tone is almost pure white!
If it escalates to a claim - any tips? The buyer had one feedback that only says pleasant transaction.
>>8855118 I've owned a couple of their older styles, one was very good but one was a bit shit. Their newer designs are mostly a lot worse and you can get better for the price. They're also associated with all the John Leigh drama and disliked for that reason.
I understand this feel. Unless you are actively working to slim down to fit into a dream dress, I feel like you'll eventually come to terms with selling them off.
I had dresses like this, the cuts just didn't flatter me (thanks Innocent World) and when I found myself wearing my other dresses more, and the ones that didn't fit me quite right collecting dust, I just sold them so I could buy more comfortable dresses. I feel like you'll come around when you realize what a waste of space they are, and when you want funds for something better that comes along.
I want to buy a JSK from this seller on LM but she doesn't have any feedback on her page. After some digging around, I noticed that she had sold one item before, and the buyer was a reputable buyer. Would it be weird if I contacted the buyer to ask if the seller is a legit seller or not?
>>8855687 My dream dress is a bit snug on me but I can't stand the thought of letting it go. Even worse, I had my BC changed recently so the bust is even tighter now. I'm thinking I may have to cut my losses and settle for a different cut because there's no sense holding onto a dress that's uncomfortable. It took me about 2 years to come to that realization.
I gotta vent about this too. Heck, I've been off my pill the last two months and they've barely shrunk. I eat pretty healthy and get my exercise, and my weight hasn't fluctuated too much so I'm at a loss on how to get rid of them. I hate sports bras and binders.
Parents said I might have just matured a bit and they probably filled out on their own. I used to be a 34B now I'm a 36C...I want to be small chested again ;_;
There's also a couple of other options, you can try looking for the other cuts of the same print and see if those fit you. The designs might not be as nice as what you got now, but having a dress you can wear is better than one you can't.
Alternatively, if it's a dress you really want to keep, you can try taking it to a tailor's and see if it can be altered to fit.
If you can't/won't alter the dress to fit and you're not actively slimming down, then you're better off selling the dress and finding something else that fits. At this point in lolita there's quite a lot of dresses that look similar, so there's the option of looking for something that's different but kind of looks similar instead.
>>8855687 I only sold one of my dream prints that was never going to fit me in any of the cuts after something else came up and I needed to find some money pronto. Still sad but hey, at least I got something else to make up for it.
>>8855803 That's a big jump in size. I'm stuck on the pill because of PCOS and the brief moment I was off my meds, my boobs didn't shrink at all and I gained weight everywhere else. I'm tired of having my prescription switched around (my health insurance stopped covering the type that works best for my condition) because it tends to increase my bust size.
>>8855687 This is me right now. I have a BNWT dress from AP and it used to fit me when I tried it on but not anymore cause of BC which caused a bit of weight gain but after months of dieting and working out, it's just not going to fit on my waist by just a few cms.
I just came to the realization that if I mod it, I won't be as happy having it so I am going to sell it since it could go to someone who would actually wear it unlike me. Took me 2 years to realize this and I am barely going to put the dress up for sell. I rather have the money to buy another dress that fits me than have one sitting in the closet collecting dust.
I like the dolluxe lashes. The wigs suck. You can't brush through them and the wig fibers aren't soft. Bijou light blonde was the last wig I bought from them and it was awful. You could see straight through the back of it. I would avoid them anon.
Ok I have a question about the upcoming nameless poem preorder I'm 5"11 and I want to buy it, but I don't want it to be too short (like a lot of dresses are) I'm super enticed by the option to go for the XL size because of the 100cm length (and the arms will be the right length too - absolute joy)
However the 106cm bust and 96cm waist would be absolutely massive on me. I would literally be swimming in it. My bust is 86cm and my waist is 71 cm for comparison. That's closer to the measurements for the small size, but I had my heart set on it to be long on me for once.
I can't decide whether to suck it up and get a small or medium (for comfort's sake) and have it a bit shorter and continue to feel like I'm not doing lolita 'right', or if I should get a large and risk fucking it up with sewing and whatnot. I'm not the best at sewing and I wouldn't have time for it anyway, and I don't have any tailors/friends with sewing knowledge that I trust or would want to spend extra money on to make the dress fit me. I know a lot of people have this dress so I'm just wondering what my best option would be. Does it run long? Is it very roomy even in smaller sizes? Am I doomed to have my knees on show every time I wear lolita?
>>8855860 >>8856068 Yes, I have several times as has my friend. Their english isn't exactly the greatest (they speak spanish) and while I did get all my stuff, my friend had to remind them several times to send them the things they ordered. As in they would legit "forget" they had stuff. She always did get it eventually though. Bottom line, while their selection is comparable to MLD or other resellers you're better off either using a taobao SS or ponying up a bit extra for the convenience of MLD.
>>8856062 At your height you should consider investing in an underskirt because you're just going to keep running into the same problem. It is a little long, due to the fact that it looks most flattering with low poof, and is roomier than the measurements suggest. If an underskirt isn't an option just go for the long length and have it tailored to your size when you get it.
>>8856130 Yeah, I tried looking for them too but I saw they had nothing there. >>8856140 Closed down? Dang I was hoping they had just removed their listings during CNY like other ebay sellers have done.
Yep. Here's the back of my Bijou wig. It took me 2 weeks to get the return started. Customer service was slow but once I got a hold of someone they were nice and quick about it. Still, I haven't wanted to buy another GLW wig since.
I'd like to know: why are different shades of the same color often frowned upon when they're used in the same outfit? I think that using different shades looks fine when they're not too crazy in difference.
>>8856269 >>8856278 I feel very conflicted about Lockshop now. I bought 2 wigs, a starlet in gunmetal and a sweetheart in vanille and when I got them I was super impressed and really liked them. The color was good, fibers were nice, and the wig seemed pretty thick. But then I bought a bohemian wig in black from their Lolita Collective stock and it was almost like an entirely different brand of wig? I'm not sure if it was the nature of the style or not, but it was thinner and also WICKED shiny. The two wigs I bought direct from them look pretty natural but I'm not sure if maybe it is the nature of the color either? I was just kinda disappointed when I got it and tried it on. And then in addition to choke fucking around and ignoring customers with problems lately has totally turned me off, which makes me sad because the 2 wigs I bought direct from them were so nice.
Any other wig places that you guys like for lolita? I'm thinking about trying something from Cyperous, but it seems like most of the japanese and korean brands have only natural colors and I'm interested in the occasional wig with a bit of color or something that's a "different" color like gray or silver. I've found a couple decent ones off taobao but I'm not sure which stores are best - I've found some just randomly looking around but they were a bit thin once I received them.
>>8856315 Well, she might not be too far off desu - recently apparently people having issues with their orders have had a very hard time getting in contact with her, either being ignored or told on Facebook they'll get to it and then they never hear anything back. She also has closed posting on lockshop's fb wall which was the main way people could ever get a response from her if they had an issue. Dunno how true it is that she's a scammer but girl needs a lesson in customer service desperately.
>>8856315 Have you not been keeping up with recent news? Wigs orders mysteriously being charged and never being shipped? Fake tracking numbers being issued? Negative comments about this on the page being mysteriously deleted?
Sure, if you actually GET your wig you might be okay. Otherwise you're screwed.
>>8856335 It's not even that, even within runs form the same company you'll hear people on both sides of it. A friend and I both bought mermaid wigs from her at the same event and hers was nice and full while might was thin and shedding like crazy. I wish we'd thought to take photos side by side, the quality difference was ridiculous. I wore it once and then pawned it off on another girl in my comm because I just wanted to get rid of it.
>>8856062 I'm 5'11" and I own the size M from the first release. My measurements are 89 and 65 cm and the length looks totally fine on me when I wear tights. For reference, I have equally proportioned legs to torso.
>>8856356 how short? i have their Prince Vanille from Lolita Collective (not sure if it is still there), which goes to around chin length. i got it for ouji but it is very fluffy and feminine. i think it would work for lolita.
>>8856365 Honestly I wouldn't be surprised if she's here just trying to spread confusion to make anybody talking negatively about lockshop look less credible. She's been less than subtle about whiteknighting herself on cgl in the past and it's backfired pretty badly, this would be a much smarter move. Alternatively: newfags who don't know better. They think things are different only because they've just begun to notice the problem.
>>8856365 Why did people defend Marie until she went off the deep end and disappeared? Why do people still defend the Leigh's even with so much proof of their misspending and bad behaviour in other communities? Why do people still buy from Milanoo? Why do scammers so often get away with shit for months before things come to a head?
When people haven't had an individual/business fuck them over, personally, they'll often keep supporting them until it does happen, despite complaints or people saying otherwise. There's always a cry to give them the benefit of the doubt, because people don't like to believe that they got lucky, or that they got duped.
>>8856368 Yep. This is personal preference but I hate the vest in this coordinate too because while it's not as glaringly awful, it's still not right. From a distance it looks okay, but up close it's just...eugh
>>8856368 The blouse is a cool brown and the vest is probably somewhere inbetween but the shorts have a yellow tone to them which throws everything off. The vest and blouse aren't perfect together but they would work better if the colours were spread out from the bottom down.
>>8856370 I honestly believe that. She was caught very recently on another board causing drama around Kate when she should've been shipping out orders and replying to customers. I can't fucking stand how she thinks that's acceptable.
>>8856374 >When people haven't had an individual/business fuck them over, personally, they'll often keep supporting them until it does happen, despite complaints or people saying otherwise. There's always a cry to give them the benefit of the doubt, because people don't like to believe that they got lucky, or that they got duped.
This. Just take a look at the drama and debate within the makeup community over Limecrime. A large solid group of people who have gotten fucked over or knew about the owner and her antics before she started LC vs. a solid fanbase who who will kiss her ass no matter what because they happened to receive decent products and have avoided any bad experiences so far defending anything and everything she does.
You can apply this to all sorts of situations really - think of the parents whose precious child gets in trouble. They always proclaim that they're amazing little god's gift could never have done such a thing even when faced with evidence that they did. People will defend something if they feel strongly about it and lolita in particular is a hobby filled with drama queens and girls with strong opinions whose word is bond.
>>8856392 I'm glad you saw that too, anon. People want to think that she's perfect and she's okay with lying to them to keep them thinking that, but every once in a while she slips up and it's really obvious that she's got some major priority issues, as well as a sour personality all around.
>>8856402 literally google it though. colors have undertones. brown is not just brown. undertones are what people are talking about when they say warm brown, cool brown, etc. you also hear it in makeup. like literally google it you lazyass, not that hard. undertones only means 1 thing and color coordination is not a new idea in lolita.
>>8856402 "Undertone" in color theory refers to how "warm" or "cool" a color is. Here's a link for you. http://www.sensationalcolor.com/understanding-color/theory/understanding-undertones-color-success-060#.VrqfO7IrKM8
>>8856472 No problem. It's a fair question to ask, especially if you don't have any prior experience in color theory. If you're up for a more interesting and theoretical read, check this out too: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-2976405/Could-ancestors-blue-Ancient-civilisations-didn-t-perceive-colour-didn-t-word-say-scientists.html
>>8856469 That anon is wrong about that but don't ignore that you were too retarded to Google it yourself - of the definitions that come up the only one that could possibly apply to lolita is the definition about color.
>>8856493 ODIP bought wigs from Lockshop when it was first starting up. The hime wigs. They arrived unstyled and Marie cracked it publicly on Nina. When she didn't get a refund, she tried to sell the wigs super cheap while slagging off Lockshop in the post. The mods told her off, and the irrelevant info was deleted.
There are caps of the story on GetoffEGL.
This situation is what led to the later antagonism between Choke and ODIP with regards to the Lief "exclusive" order.
>>8856333 >Wigs orders mysteriously being charged and never being shipped? >Fake tracking numbers being issued? okay the negative comments being deleted is dumb of her too but there's literally no excuse for these two what the fuck
>>8856484 >don't ignore that you were too retarded to Google it yourself Sorry but I get really sick and tired of being told to google things all the time when sometimes google doesn't give you the right answer in the right context. BTW the first result for Undertones is a fucking band. Obviously I would rule that out but god damn, google is NOT the answer for everything.
Yes, I get in this context it was referring to color, but I was also unsure and given that google isn't a person who knows what I'm talking about, I didn't want to just google things and expect to understand immediately. I thought after seeing that picture of the girl in the vest that it might be about texture undertones which is also thing if all undertones means is the undertone of apart of something else. >a quality, meaning, etc., that is present but not clear or obvious
That's like a metaphor for this entire conversation! THANKS FOR CALLING ME A RETARD I AM PANTS ON HEAD RETARDED YES I KNOW
>>8856561 I mean, yeah. But even so, who cares? It's still something that she's doing - whether or not paypal gives you a refund she shouldn't be doing and it's happened to multiple people so far. The main issue here isn't just refunds - it's that Choke doesn't know how to run her business anymore.
Just tweeting this shit is cringey enough, but then she had to go and post the cap on tumblr with the caption:
"Are you ready for Valentine’s Day? Cause I am ^_−"
At this point, you're only miserable because you want to be miserable. The sooner you get over yourself, the sooner you might start growing to be the kind of person that people can stand to be around. You're pushing everyone that cares about you away with this self-depreciating, bitter horseshit and soon not even the edgy tumblr brats will put up with you because it's just too much. If you're going to insist on holding on to this stupid bitterness, please keep it to yourself.
>>8856480 That was an interesting read. Of topic but I always think it's weird that things like colours weren't always there. That once upon a time it wasn't buy blue paint it was figure out how to make blue paint.
>>8856602 >caring this much about lor's personal life get a life anon lor is free to feel bitter just like many other girls who suffered a breakup and are single with valentine's approaching soon enough valentines will be over and she'll be over it, you should get over it too also for the last fucking time >caring about what someone posts in regards to their personal lives on their personal blogs/twitter/fb/what have you
>>8856621 is it really that hard to check the archive?
>>8856660 >>caring about what someone posts in regards to their personal lives on their personal blogs/twitter/fb/what have you lmao what do you think the purpose of following someone on social media is I mean what do you really think If she wanted to shout into the empty cosmos of the internet she could, and no one would ever know the voice was hers She is choosing to rub this in the faces of everyone who follows her even though she should know damn well that self-hate and bitter assjuice isn't what they signed up for She should make a side blog to vent, at the very least And she should definitely seek some help, whether it's professional or from someone close to her. Shit's toxic to her and everyone around her as long as she chooses to hold on to it like this.
>>8856662 I'm not saying that they're a bad company. I'm saying they keep getting stuck with stock from companies that seem intent on ruining their own reputations in the midst of expansions.
The girl running ODIP USA posted on Tumblr that she couldn't move any stock before they took it over, so I wonder if they're having more luck since they can sell at cons where people don't know about that whole situation.
>>8856330 >This has been a more recent issue. Lockshop hasn't always had these problems.
This is not a recent issue, unfortunately. It's a shame they disabled posts to page so most of it is gone now, but there have been a consistent stream of customers for 2+ years with these same problems, and they always have an excuse for it.
>>8856790 They might mean that it always hasn't been this bad...usually it seems like in the past, if someone inquired about it on the page, they usually got everything taken care of. It's just recently that it's gotten particularly bad with many more customers being flat out ignored and straight up lied to. Or at least, this is how it looked to me - perhaps there were far more issues a few years ago and she was just better at covering them up? I just feel like they weren't as many?
>>8856825 Fewer people spoke out back then because they thought their incidents were isolated and didn't see the point. The more people talk about it though, the more people will come out of the woodworks to talk about their experiences.
>>8856825 >they usually got everything taken care of.
Yes and no. They only got everything taken care of after months of trying to get resolutions. And in most cases 'taken care of' just meant Choke finally issued them a refund after run-arounds. ("oh it'll be shipped this weekend after 3 months xoxo" "oh so and so is sick" "we'll send you a discount!" "how about a totally different item to compensate?" which in many cases led to no discounts or items)
Found this recap of Lockshop customer posts from January-March 2015 on the archive.
>someone who placed an order 2 months ago that still hasn't arrived, was told they would get a coupon for the delay but never did, got a "package shipped" email with a tracking number saying it was shipped on the 5th of March--meaning a month after they ordered.
>Someone who wanted a large order for a special occasion, emailed Lockshop before ordering to confirm that it could be received in time. Ordered 16 pieces, received only 2 items in their package with the invoice for 16 pieces. Was told by Choke that they needed a picture of the package--which they already sent. Didn't get a message until days later, which basically said "it's in the hands of customer service." As of March 16th (a month later) they never got their items, answers to their emails, update to the order, or even an apology.
>Someone who waited 3 months for their package, it was supposedly shipped out with an "extra gift" but Choke "lost the slip at the post office" so they have to wait to get tracking/proof of delivery, which they haven't provided.
>Someone who wrote in January that they've been waiting since mid-October for their item, who Lockshop was charging for reshipment despite the delay being an issue on Lockshop's end.
My ss has been so slow with replies, and all I want is for her to ship my damn dress out. She knows it' for an event but still wasted a whole day asking if I had any shipping instructions rather than just invoicing me for express shipping like I already asked fffff
>>8856677 >lmao what do you think the purpose of following someone on social media is ok but it's still THEIR social media and they're free to post what they like on it >If she wanted to shout into the empty cosmos of the internet she could, and no one would ever know the voice was hers see above. if she wants to use her own social media, she's allowed to do that too. that's why it's her personal social media. >She is choosing to rub this in the faces of everyone who follows her even though she should know damn well that self-hate and bitter assjuice isn't what they signed up for they are free to unfollow (so are you) and besides expecting someone to cater to your wishes on their PERSONAL SOCIAL MEDIA isn't how this works by the way if you see it as her rubbing it in your face, well, you sound really bitter yourself and you should probably just unfollow her anyway >She should make a side blog to vent, at the very least or you could unfollow her because she doesn't have to do that either and shouldn't be forced to >And she should definitely seek some help, whether it's professional or from someone close to her. i do agree with this at the least, but that's also her own decision. >Shit's toxic to her and everyone around her as long as she chooses to hold on to it like this. you can also be the mature one and choose to ignore it like the rest of us do
>>8856210 I have an underskirt, I just don't like the way it looks under most of my dresses. I don't think it would look right under nameless poem
>>8856362 I think I'll take your advice and go for it in M, though my legs are longer than my torso. I guess I'll just suck it up because I need it in green. I don't even like green much and I'm shocked by how much I want the green colourway.
>>8856602 I feel bad for her because my last breakup made me basically turn into a bitter old seadog too. I've never liked or been able to properly celebrate valentine's day and I know how she's feeling, I hope she finds peace with herself soon.
>>8856602 Lor in person hasn't been the same. I saw her at con not too long ago and really had a weird vibe to her that said "Don't get near me, don't say hi, don't anything" and looked weird when seeing couples having fun. I think she just doesn't know how to handle her breakup but honestly it's hurting some of her friendships too from what I hear.
>>8856602 I can feel with her, sort of. It took me 6 years to recover from the breakup with my ex and I've been totally miserable during that time. If you truly loved a person, it will feel like you've died inside and there is nothing that can help you and make you feel fetter, so you become bitter. You lose interest in social interactions, because it hurts seeing other happy people and I've lost lots of friends due to my bitterness and personality change.
Only time can make it better, it's a long process. I am not laughing at her, because I know how shitty this situation is. I just wish she would limit her online activity, it'd be for her best.
>>8857364 I think it's because chocolate prints usually go with berets and boots which is more appropriate for the climate in the northern hemisphere right now. And most chocolate prints are made out of cotton or thicker fabrics. Chiffon and polyester dresses will rule again in spring and summer.
>>8857352 the orders place on the lockshop usa will be fulfilled by the lolita collective so there won't be any of these issues people have had historically. they will only fill orders based on stock they have, so when something sells out they stop selling it.
they are selling the leftover anime matsuri stock in their storenvy, and some of those wigs really suck, but they also accept returns/offer percentage based refunds if you aren't satisfied
I'm having an issue with a buyer on LM. Last month she bought one of my items without inquiring about shipping price (she's intl.). After she bought it, I sent a message asking if she was okay with the shipping cost (~50 USD) since she hadn't messaged me or anything. She then requested that I do a payment plan where she paid for the item cost last month and the shipping come this month. Even though this is against my TOS since I request that all payment plans be negotiated before the buyer purchases an item, I agreed to it. She made the first payment relatively promptly, but now it's almost two weeks into February and she hasn't read or replied to my LM messages to complete the second payment. I also sent an email to her PP address but nothing. Is there anything I can do? If she decides to back out now, will PP side with her and make me refund? I made it clear in the invoices that it was a payment plan.
So I've only collected dark pieces up till now and I'm interested in lighter dresses but I'm wondering how difficult it is to match the right tone and dealing with white, off-white, ivory. I'm interested in ivory/beige to match with sepia and wine, but do you find you don't always end up with the right shade when ordering online?
>>8857678 not that anon, but calling someone a strawberry in chinese implies that they "squash" easily under pressure, and a lot of younger people are referred to as such
>>8858006 was the payment made through the gift option? if not, then paypal will most likely side with her. for future payment plans where you want to do partial payments and/or make the buyer put down a non-refundable deposit, at least make sure they pay by gift
>>8858194 She can do do whatever she wants with her brand. But that doesn't stop me from calling it shitty. Those shoes, wtf? Also she is way to chubby to pull the style off she was going for. Aatp actually brought out printed jumpsits before, so the idea isn't horrible. It's just not working on her body. I could see it working on a petite skinny girl.
I have a really stupid question, how do I share my sales album on LSE or another sales group to make a sales post? I tried googling and looking it up on facebook but all I am getting is how to add people on a shared album which isn't what I want.
>>8858193 Why do people keep recommending sellers request gift payments? You will get screwed over completely with no way of getting your money back if they do a chargeback. It's the most dangerous way with the least protection for sellers.
>>8858300 You know how you can change the audience for posts that you make? Like setting things to friends only, making the post so all your friends can see it except for your mom, etc. Change the privacy settings on the post to public and when you are ready just copy the link to the album, go to the group, and put the link in the post like you would if you were going to share any regular link. It should come up with a preview like other links but if not you can just put the link there.
When you're looking at the album, there will be the title and the date underneath it, next to the date there should be a tiny icon, click it and it should be a drop down box with various privacy settings and click public. then in the right hand corner within the album (like, across from the "shared album" button) there should be some buttons that say edit and tag and a gear icon, if you click the gear there's a "get link" button
>>8857217 Her breakup was over a year ago and she turned into a huge edgelord. I stopped following her on IG because of her saltiness and pics of her trying to look hip when she has bad taste in clothes. She can fuck off with posting about her poorly dyed hair too already. This kind of crap does make you lose your fan base bc people get tired of it.
shut the fuck up about lor, literally no one cares if you have an opinion about her break-up and how she's dealing with it because that literally isn't related to lolita at all even if she is one. take it to lolcow or anywhere else please
in an attempt to get another on-topic discussion going: anyone else reserve the enchanted fawn re-release? who else is as excited as I am to get their shit? I was looking for the black JSK in my size for ages so I'm excited that it got rereleased. I'm praying that it ships next month so I can wear it for anime boston.
>>8858193 I sometimes do request non-refundable deposits, but I did not in this case. I was more asking if anyone had experience with this/could comment on whether Paypal would still protect the buyer, as I know that payment plans supposedly void both both seller and buyer protection. Also, as others have said, gift payments have their own risks.
>>8857965 one made of good quality materials that will balance your hairstyle. if you have big hair, a small decorative hat made of good materials can work. but the same hat on a flat hairstyle will look weird.
avoid the tiny teacup-sized hats for now, they are most likely to go wrong.
pic related is not exactly gothic, but uses a gothic-appropriate minihat
minitricorns often look better. also trimmings or fascinators can help "distribute" the hat around your head to help balance it, so the minihat functions as a kind of KC/headdress rather than a proper hat.
Is there anything that can help keep wristcuffs in place? I just got my first pair of AP cuffs and they're so loose I can fit two fingers between my wrist and the cuff without stretching the elastic. They won't stay in place on my wrist, falling up my arms and twisting upside down.
>>8858612 I'm thiiiink they usually have pieces in-stock once preorders start shipping? If you go on their storenvy I know it looks like they have some leftover dresses from previous releases. I think EF is kinda popular though so I would just keep an eye out on their Facebook page so you can buy ASAP.
>>8858661 I recently started using the partial payment. There doesn't seem to be a difference honestly. Everytime a payment is made it still shows an option to ship the individual payments instead of lumping them all together for the 1 invoice. Also, paypal doesn't notify you once it's paid in full. I find that pretty annoying honestly.
>>8858642 All of the OPs and JSKs were in stock last time I checked. It wasn't a popular release.
Another anon mentioned Magic Princess going onto the sale rack - does anyone know if they do an online winter sale? It says on APs site "Coming Soon" still. I want them to have a sale like they do in summer so I can swoop up the newer items.
>>8858139 I think it will be quite difficult, that's why I mostly avoid those colors. but, if you want to do it, I would say stick to one brand in one coord. or collect a lot of those shades and in the end it could be easier to coord the shades
I'm going to be selling some dresses within the next week or two and I couldn't find a price check thread, so I was wondering what you guys would value my dresses at? I have: Magical Etoile High Waist JSK + KC +OTKs, all in pretty good condition Dolly Cat Low Waist JSK in Sax and also in Lavender.
>>8858021 I've picked up pretty much everything that's been linked or shown, but without actual caps and conversations it's near impossible to make any sort of claims - and I'm lacking pretty badly in that department
I think that's going to be the only option, because they really are absolutely massive. I knew they might be big when I bought them because my wrists are so small, but I never thought they would be this loose. I'm disappointed. Fortunately, I think I can fix it myself.
Actually looking at them... the construction is really horrid and messy. The overlock on the edges of the chiffon is nice and clean, and the satin ribbons on the fronts are symmetrical, but where the lace and elastic are sewn there's loose threads and wobbly stitching everywhere. The satin ribbon's edges are frayed. I don't know. Maybe I'm just being picky. They are just wristcuffs after all.
>>8859074 I have that problem with all wrist cuffs as well and I'm tall/ not petite by any stretch of imagination. I end up just making my own since it's not worth it when you have to modify pre-bought ones anyway. Not to mention bracelets ever fitting...
>>8858387 She had to be upset but it's seven fucking months or more and she's clearly done nothing to help herself. It's really worrying. She needs to deal with her problems head on instead of sweeping them under her new edgelord persona.
>>8859078 I'm not petite either but I have downright skeletal forearms. (wish I could say the same for my upper arms sigh) My wrist is a little under 6 inches around. Nothing fits unless it comes in a children's size. I figured it was reasonable to assume the cuffs would run a little small.
>>8858407 I'm excited for this release and bought the OP, too. I honestly disliked the construction on the original release, so I'm glad I never bought it. It just seemed abnormally long and never sat right on anyone.
>>8859138 Whenever people ask stuff about wearing things that don't match I always say the same thing: who's gonna see? Rarely will anyone come up and bitch to you in person, rarely will anyone take your pic and try to upload it on here or something. The only way anyone will know if you take a photo and upload it somewhere yourself and make it so people can find it (i.e. lolita tag or CoF)
You may want to find some time maybe before or after to take some coord shots with the nice shoes but feel free to wear comfortable ones to the con imo.
>>8858887 Magic princess just came out. It won't go on sale till their summer sale which happens online in Aug/Sept. You would have to contact an SS once AP starts mentioning summer sales to get it sooner. But again that will be in summer not now.
A year ago, I had to block a lolita on Facebook due to poor professionalism and rudeness. I woke up this morning and found that the person won the bid on LM of a dress I am selling. This dress is a dream dress for the lolita. How do I respond to this? I feel as if this person is stalking me and I need to call the police.
>>8859481 If it's been a whole year of no contact, I doubt shes trying to stalk you- she proabbly just, like you said, it trying to get her dream dress.
If you are seriously that worried, just tell her there's been an issue and you cant sell right now. She's probably gonna leave a bad review, but if you'd rather have that then her getting the dress then there you go.
Lolita Collective was helping out with the Snow Field when they were having problems too. I don't think it's an accident or that they are getting "stuck" with this stuff. I think they are purposefully buying these other people out to because they can sell the stuff better. Maybe it's easy to negotiate when the original seller has bad pr problems. I've bought from LC a couple times and had a problem with one of my orders and their customer service and response time was really good. I'd feel much better about buying a Lockshop wig from them than from Nina.
>>8859138 I never understand this. Just get comfortable, decently matching shoes. If it's last minute and you are trying to just get by with it then it's poor planning. Idk why people are willing to mess up an entire coord and their whole look with something that they know doesn't match? It defeats the purpose of even having a good coord in the first place.
I'm looking at getting Dreaming Macaron halterneck jsk to twin with a friend, but the lolibrary measurements are "70+" for the waist. The bodice has shirring, but I'm curious if anyone has the dress and knows what the measurement range is? Specifically, I want to know if it can fit 78/79 cm for the waist. Thank you!
I have this old AP Bonnet from the crown trump series, and I don't have alot of experience with them. It's a thick enough material so that it kind of stays up, but not really. There's no wire or hardbacking to keep it's shape.
Looking at oldschool pictures, it seems like that was the style, but is there anything I can do to keep it one fanned out shape during the day? It's a velvet like material.
>>8860093 It's meant to be kind of floppy. Just accept that and adjust it to flop in a pleasing way when you put it on, if that makes sense. I'm not sure there's much else you can do aside from major alterations.
>>8860115 I was thinking it was meant to be that way, but I didn't know if there was an alternative. Yeah I think I would have to basicially take it apart and resew if it I wanted it to be stiff. Thank you!
Dumb question, but I don't understand the measurements for this cut of dress. The measurement for the L size bust was listed as 94cm. Is this an underbust measurement or standard bust size measurement? I fit IW L sized JSK's, but 94cm is just under my measurement, so I'm afraid it won't fit if it's not the underbust. It's IW's Tea Time Corset JSK btw. Any insight is appreciated.
>>8860335 I wouldn't risk it personally, and busty girls look pretty terrible in underbust jsk's anyway... IW underbusts hit me like mid nipple, maybe slightly under nipple and I'm flat as hell so while you could probably put your boobs like on top of it I don't think it would look right. Hope that made sense.
Did any gulls get this, and if so, would you be willing to do a mini review/comment on sizing? The dress looks so weirdly baggy/droopy on the mannequin, and I'm also a bit under the measurements (83-66), so I'm wary of it. Not to mention that fucking shipping cost.
>>8859490 At first I thought it was over concern that she had been stalkerish and you didn't want her getting your address, but now you just seem a little too self important. It's more likely that she was just after the dream dress, not buying it because she worships you. How is she even supposed to know your LM username? The police wouldn't take you seriously for a second.
Actually if it's a big-ish con there's likely to be some lolitas there who will take her photo and upload them someplace where other lolitas can see it. She can always refuse photos or ask they not include her shoes, but idk if that's going to come across as insecure or something, which in turn would contribute to her discomfort.
>>8858652 Issues since at least 2013 with quality being hit and miss, stuff like smoke smell and ripping along seams due to poor quality control but the poof was still ok. They became noticeably more crap overall, deflating quickly etc in 2014 and by last year the majority of advice given on cgl was avoid them.
>>8859481 Refuse her offer stating she is on your blocked list. Keep it short and sweet, don't get into a drama fight just make your statement. Message LM mods with explanation of the situation. Re-list dress and include the disclaimer that you reserve the right to refuse any buyer for personal reasons from now on in your sales. Problem solved.
>>8860560 The shitposts and bait threads are slowly disappearing, I think mods are trying their best but they're being hit with wave after wave of stupid shit. Wondering whether we got linked somewhere or if /r9k/ suddenly remembered theres a "GRILL BOARD" again. ugh. Guess all we can do is hide and report while we wait things out.
On a kawaii note, here's a pile of Usakumya from BABY's twitter. Gosh I love Usakumya.
>>8860335 I bought a medium sized IW underbust JSK even though my bust is 95cm. I only can wear it without a bra or with really thin ones and mostly by putting my breasts up. I wear boleros and cardigans to hide them though because it looks really unfortunate, I feel like some inkeeper during Pirates' time or something. I don't see how it could be a bust measurement as it stops under the bust, so go for it if you want, the difference between your bust and the dress probably won't look as awful as mine. Although I feel like those dresses only look nice on flat chested girls.
>>8859481 >dream dress >this morning was this the $1,300 Traumerei JSK set? >first thing i noticed this morning >otherwise only saw what was an AP oldschool sweet jsk in a black colorway, pinoream, a shitty $20 ap replica (which i sincerely hope wasn't yours), a random solid Baby jsk, more oldschool AP sweet in black, Meta Alice in Wonderland, AP Horror Garden in wine, taobao shit, bodyline shit, more oldschool AP, IW solid, a reserved dress, Dream Marine special set in white (could be this too?), more solids, more oldschool AP sweet, fucking Holy Lantern, Princess Wardrobe, fucking Luminous Sanctuary, more random IW... you get the drill the only ones that make me think otherwise is when it gets to the Bookmark JSK in red and Honey Cake but pretty much everything lately went for less than that Traumerei.
>>8860606 >Besides, this lolita is rude and awkward. >If this lolita wanted this dream dress so bad, the lolita should have fuck off and needed to stop talking. I swear this person might have been mentally retarded. are you mentally retarded? how hard is it for you to fucking ignore people like a normal person and handle business properly so you won't get negative feedback for being a shit seller? >speaking as someone technically mentally retarded but who at least knows how to do that much (and doesn't think random people from a year ago are stalking me now)
