A lot of oldfriends or otherwise nostalgic people say older brand items are of higher quality or better construction than newer pieces, but nothing's been done on a large scale to prove either statement. I thought it would be a good old fashioned fun time to collect data on items made by brands in the last 20 years. Go ahead and fill out as many surveys as you can for items that you're the most recent owner of, including pieces that are damaged beyond repair. Try to be impartial here.

(Board thinks the link is spam so I put it in the picture, here's the hard part for copy/pasting purposes.)

>No bodyline ya dummies

Since 4chan is an anonymous platform, this is also a good place to get me some opinions on older vs. newer main piece quality. Feel free to share your opinions of brand quality then and now in the thread. Give me your honest opinion. Horror stories very welcome.

Be aware your comments may end up in the "report" I make after I've collected data. If you don't want that, just say so.

This information is pretty useless unless you were the sole owner of an item, though. With anything second-hand you don't know if the last owner kept it in their wardrobe for ten years or was wearing it and machine washing it every week, so you can't draw any conclusions about durability from it. I doubt there are enough people that have kept the same dress 15 years to get reliable results.

I think you have a point there with the storage. I'll adjust the questionnaire, and keep it in mind as I sort through the data that the first few answers didn't receive that question.

Thanks for responding!

Should I still fill this out for a dress that is old, but was marked as good condition on LM, but really wasn't at all? I haven't touched it since and am still debating on how to clean it without the dye running (AP red).

Is anyone else still waiting on their order from AP USA back from when they released the tea party tickets? Meanwhile, Risa Nakamura photos available with $35 purchase.

>don't know what kind of animu i like, don't have a fave anymore
>i don't even wanna go to cons anymore because there, they are always the same and after two hours i feel bored already
I feel so empty and weird, I just want to be an excited weeb like i was as a teenager (without the cringe), everything was so much more exciting. I had so much to look forward to. And now that I am 21 and actually have the money to buy real lolita,go to cons,buy anime merch,... i don't really feel like it anymore. I used to have depression but i'm mainly over it, don't know what could be causing that.

Are you sure you're over it? Because thinking everything is pointless and no longer taking pleasure in things you used to sounds like text book depression to me. Maybe talk to a therapist.

>decide to play some animal crossing but then tell myself it's meaningless in the end, a new game will come and it'll become obsolete

And stop thinking like this. First of all it doesn't make any sense. I'm pretty sure the vast majority of people replay their old games. It's not like buying a new game makes the old one stop working?

Secondly you're never, ever going to be happy if you don't make an effort to put yourself in a frame of mind where happiness can be had. Happiness starts with you.

What's the nicest compliment you've ever received for your cosplay work?

It's just a local prefectural TV special, with a judging system that changes on a dime and is basically decided ahead of time. It's not worth anyone's time. A WCS win doesn't really mean much these days.

Currently living through a story of my own and need advice.

>Send gift to friend, full of j-fashion items
>Everything's going well, package about to be delivered today
>Suddenly 'package marked as undeliverable
>Friend was home all day, no slip given
>Check reviews for their post office, apparently every single package that goes through that centre is marked as undeliverable
>Calling USPS but can't reach a proper human

What do, gulls? How do I save this package?

If you're calling USPS and can't get past automation, hit 0 repeatedly until it redirects to customer service. You can also google search the number of the centre and call them up and raise holy hell and threaten to file a complaint.

Thanks anon, I eventually got to a person but they were completely unhelpful and unable to answer any questions. The local place is closed because time zones but I'm planning on calling the local place first thing in the morning and my friend is going in person, hopefully they won't have sent it back yet.
>>
>>9270652
Good luck anon! Just tell your friend to be pissed off and ask to speak to whoever is in charge and/or file complaints if they brush her off. From the reviews it sounds like they hate to do their job and need a kick in the ass.

CCP has started giving out gacha tickets (applicable to all the limited time gachas, not the normal ones) which has helped alleviate some of the feeling of exploitation. i can pretty much guarantee being able to play every gacha i want for free at least once now.

but advancing to higher ranks in competitions is impossible without spending money, still. kind of sucks.

I wasn't sure where to post this, was going to do it in the Lolita general but the old thread is dead and I didn't want to start it off with a replica discussion.
Someone I have as a friend on Facebook is selling Celestial in Black for absurdly low, around $100 less than the going price. She says it's because she lost the front bow, but that the dress is in otherwise good condition. I'm still a little suspicious though, since the bows are one of the most telling signs of a replica. It's a long shot, but can anyone tell from these photos if it's a replica or not ?

Just posted in the dead one but now it's dead so here we go.

Selling AP's Fantastic Carnival JSK and headbow in lavender, bought it just before my preferred colourway went on sale. Not looking to make a profit, just want what I paid for it. 160$ + shipping for gulls, or I'd trade it for AP's Dreamy Jewel regular JSK in black or pink. Feedback and proof pics available upon request.

This will never not make me angry. In my opinion, all necklines for lolita should be no lower than the hollow of the throat and clothes shouldn't be cut in a way that emphasizes the breasts (such as underbust jsks) because this fashion is not meant to be sexy and people shouldn't try and sex it up

Underskirt diy

I'm pretty sure she isn't actually intending for her petti to sit that low, but seriously how does she think that it looks good?

Also kek because she wants to use the waist bow of the dress as a headbow, hope she looks like a helicopter
