New Menhera thread! Old one in autosage --
Do you guys think menhera is starting to suffer from the same problem as larme with the infestation of western ruling?
What does /cgl/ think about Liz Katz?
Meltia released their first MV the other day, has anyone else seen it yet?
I found the dancing to be a little awkward and thought it was odd that their coords didn't match more, but overall I'm really glad that they're still trying to appeal directly to Lolitas, and that they're doing SOMETHING. There's a short scene of them tying each others waist ties and just messing around and stuff which was very cute.
Is this the start of much more activity, do you think?
I thought the were done for. I'm glad that's not the case. Hopefully they can come back from all the hardships in the past year with so many of the girls leaving.
I miss Caty.
It was cool at parts but I find it weird that they don't even try to smile. The close ups of their faces just look so disinterested, like someone took three 16 year olds and forced them to dance around in clothes they didn't want to wear.
Can we get a mail horror stories thread going? Didn't see one in the catalog.
As for me..
>order unused wig and skirt off seller
>tell them i'd be going on vacation for a week when i bought it, so they should wait to ship it (probably a fuckup on my part.)
>they tell me okay, no problem
>come back from vacation
>let them know
>they tell me 'oh, well, i shipped it out already, but told them to leave it in the post office for you to pick it up in case it arrived early.'
>well ok. inconvenient but its fine
>ask for tracking number
>they say they left it in their pants and they were cleaned, meaning it was lost
>oh ok well thats fine i guess
>they call their post office asking about it
>say i'll get it within 2-3 days
>a week passes
>no package, no note telling me to pick it up
>ask seller, they say they dont know and tell me to call my post office
>call my post office, they say they haven't gotten anything
>continue waiting a few days
>landscaper working outside house while i was at the grocery store
>post office didn't listen to seller so it was delivered instead of left at the post office
>left it on front porch
>see a package in his truck that wasn't there before i left to the store, a 5 minute trip
>landscaper stole it
I hope he likes frilly clothes and curly wigs.
I figured that'd just cause a problem with him included. I knew it was mine since I got a good look at it considering I parked right behind him, and it had my name on it.
I opened a claim but nothing has happened yet.

Full convention agenda: http://pastebin.com/QaZ23aUA and as always, if I missed anything feel free to post it so I can add it to the pastebin.
This threads relevant Strawpoll:
Abunai vs Amsterdam Comic Con; which will you attend? http://www.strawpoll.me/10952440
going to ACC, keeping my expectations low. I always look for the costume contests because there is a much larger audience than just anime fans. Would go to abunai if my work wasn't a bitch
Because there is not that much new stuff to fill a thread. Lets try to post new coords.
i found pic related today on Yahoo Auctions and had no idea it existed.
So I work at Joann now and automatically get a 20% discount on this so what is it REALLY good for? What do y'all use it for?
I've heard lining for costumes, but then you can't see it so I don't see a point in that as it's rarely discounted. Recently I made a reusable pad out of Zelda fabrics (I bleed all over Link's face and I'm damn proud).
Do you have any projects you've done with this marvelous character cotton? Or have any examples?? I'd like to see it.
I've seen people do the simple skirt thing with it.
I think if I find a print I really like I'll make some PJs or maybe some overalls or something like that.
My grandma bought some Marvel fabric and made me a circle skirt as a present.
Other than that, PJs like the other person said, the fleece ones can be used for throw blankets and pillow covers. I've seen itas try to make fandom lolita dresses before but imo it looks awful when people try to make jsks out of it.
btw, how are the employee discounts at jo-ann? is it just 20% off everything? curious about how much you get off certain departments.
I can't for the life of me find a purple cowl neck that looks enough like what zone tan wears and I'm too shitty at knitting. Any suggestions?
Sew it then, you don't have to knit it
Don't think cons allow that anon
A thread for posting coord inspiration for non print dresses, and their details.
Or VK thread. Or simply Manasama thread.
I never thought I'd live to see Malice Mizer live, but now that I did I don't know what impossible thought to cling on to next.
Ask for help, get advice, etc.
I'm very new to lolita and bought my first dress. I don't plan on wearing it anytime soon because I still want to plan and build the wardrobe, but I was wondering what type of hangers I should use so I don't damage the straps or stretch the dress out. Would wood be optimal?

found on tumblr -- what do you guys think?
Let's see those ghibli cosplays and lolita/j-fash inspired outfits!
New thread since the old one's autosaging and almost off the page.
Starting with a cool Zenyatta. Proportions are a little odd but man, this effort. And it looks great otherwise.
Old one is dead and I didn't see a new one.
Did this a pretty long time ago, it's my first and only. Not so sure what I should improve on/change/switch out or if I should try to make another coord. Any thoughts/comments/suggestions/help/anything?
I didn't want to spend a shit ton on my first coord in case I fucked up so it's probably cheap looking as hell because (for lolita) it was. Go easy on me if it's terrible lol I'm a beginner.
