A bunch of resin instagrams I follow. List is not particularly discerning or in order.

Why can't a westerner make resin accessories as cute as the ones in the OP post? I would buy the shit out of them.
woah, source on the OP pic?

Need help, I'm going to a con and need three coords. One I am sure about so I won't bother posting it. I have a few questions on these. One, should I coord the dress on the left with pink accessories or brown (or both, and how?), and which shoes? Two, what neckline blouse for the pink dress, the square or high neck? Three, should I wear brown shoes or navy? Are two small bows for my hair enough, or do I need more, and what color (besides sax, I don't have any in sax). Finally, needing some hair/ wig style advice. I usually just wear a plain wig or curl my hair but I wondered if anyone has a suggestion for other hairstyles to go with whatever coord is best, the hair thread was no use. I'm looking for braids and updos, but I don't know if people like them.
Anon, if you're taking all of this in a suitcase then we need to see the first coord. Try bringing only 1 pair of shoes for the entire 3 days, they're big and clunky and annoying. Same purse, too. Try reusing items in coords, it'll be good for you.
all your shoes are pretty ugly so it doesn't really matter which you choose

Seeing as the Ontario thread has just been taken over with this whole OCC v CHG v Mississauga/Toronto thing and seems people are ready to just move on past that and starting talking about the other provinces. Here it is. So what non-GTA or Ontario upcoming convention are you planning to attend?

What exactly is “lolita”? What is it trying to achieve? It is an alternative fashion, obviously. So, then, doesn’t that imply that you dress in lolita as a way of rebelling against some sort of mainstream ideology? Clearly, lolita has counterculture elements. You’re dressing in unusual ways and joining communities for those who share your style. But why? Who are you trying to rebel against? What “culture” does lolita have, and how does your outfit emulate it? Does lolita even really have a culture? Unfortunately, that doesn’t seem to be the case. For all too many girls who dress in lolita, it’s just clothes. This, in my opinion, is horribly disappointing, especially considering how lolita rebels against the mainstream in ways most subcultures do not. How does one get famous as a lolita? Lolitas achieve fame by buying the most popular prints from the most popular brands. Girls will go to great lengths and pay large sums of money for these dresses, up to thousands and thousands of dollars for a single dress. What makes these dresses so special? Cat Tea Party is pretty, but there are plenty of other dresses that are just as pretty. I find it hard to believe that so many different girls have the same favorite dress. Clearly, it’s all about the status. And now you know what lolita is all about! Despite being an alternative fashion, lolita is just as vapid and superficial as the mainstream culture they’re supposedly rebelling against. A dress gets popular and everyone rushes to get their hands on it so they can shamelessly promote themselves on their Tumblr blog and get popular. I know I probably sound like an outsider attacking a fashion I don’t understand, but the reason I made this post is actually because I really care about lolita and I’m disappointed to see the road it’s taken.

As lolita is a sub fashion where girls gain reputation and fame by buying expensive things and posting pictures online, it’s not surprising that it tends to attract some bland people. I click the link to a lolitas Tumblr and, about 90% of the time, it’s content is indistinguishable from any other lolitas. Heck, I’m not even going to restrict it to lolita, they look just like most Tumblr pages I’ve seen. I don’t see many girls who make lolita into their main “thing”. For the vast majority of girls within lolita, it’s a side thing. Much of the online comm is made up of casuals who wear lolita one day and some other tumblrcore fashion the next. What made them decide to be a lolita? They saw someone reblog it on Tumblr and though “I’ve got to get in on that”. And that is why lolita fails to be a fashion with any kind of substance. You are a bunch of women and young girls, and you’re wearing outlandish, yet modest clothing with throwbacks to the past. That’s awfully provocative, any curious onlooker is going to want to know why you’re doing it. Unfortunately, most of these girls couldn’t tell you themselves.

Ask yourself this, why are you a lolita? Would you call yourself a lolita, or do you adapt many different substyles for their aesthetic without consideration for the meaning behind it? Are you a lolita because your friends are doing it? Because popular Tumblr girls are doing it? Because it’s an easy sub fashion to gain fame within if you have enough money? It’s almost as if you’re doing this for attention! Hmmm……
When I go to sites that are supposed to be hotspots for lolita elitism, I see a lot of girls shitting on one another for wearing cheap brands or not having the latest prints.

Tryhard edgy kawaii humor that fails to be edgy, some sex positive feminism, pastel hair,

I’m not saying that all lolitas are like this, there are some who are genuinely interesting.

I remember going to meets back before lolita started to gain popularity in the west and the reasons that it appealed to me. Brand clothing from Japan was expensive and rare, many girls made their own clothing. Most of the girls that I met were interested in the sort of things that you would expect from someone who wears a fashion that’s reminiscent of Victorian childrens clothes. So, what was it that changed?

I've been using decopic for stickers recently, I'm quite into it though the selection isn't the best and there's in-app purchases (which are partially circumventable). aillis/LINE camera got too confusing with all the name changes and shit

Anyways, let's enjoy some older sweet lolita and chill out.
To the anon who wanted to know the color of the collar on the iw op, I went with grey so it's more of an off white, not sure if it's different with black.

>How many main pieces do you have?
>What's the oldest brand you have?
The oldest I have are from 2008- IW's Dolce jsk and Baby's Garden op.
>What's the most recently released brand you have?
If taobao applies to this then The Maiden of Versailles jsk from Inori, but if not then AP's Secret Rose Princess skirt (which isn't... particularly recent).
>Overall theme?
Mainly classic. I have lots of pink and blue too.
>Any rare/grail dresses?
Nope. I'm a babby lolita and have been focused on getting pieces I like than holding out for rarities.
>Do you buy new or second hand more?
I've only bought 3 dresses new directly, but I've gotten a number of NWT items through the secondhand market. I'm generally too damn cheap for new stuff.
>Anything you wish you had more of?
Blouses, bags, shoes.
>How do you store clothes/accessories/shoes?
I really need to organize my shit lol.
I'm a student so I have half my stuff at my parents' house and half in my dorm. A lot of my hair accessories and brooches are just sitting on my nightstands, whoops. By next year I plan to have everything pretty and stored properly.
>How many main pieces do you have?
18 total; 1 skirt, 6 OPs, and 11 JSKs
>What's the oldest brand you have?
I've quite a few older baby pieces, the oldest is probably from the early 2000's, but I'm not 100% sure.
>What's the most recently released brand you have?
Haenuli's enchanted fawn re-release jsk or Classic Fairytales Jsk from AP.
>Overall theme?
floral, brown, classic, or old school
>Any rare/grail dresses?
for me even though I bought classic fairytales at release, it's a holy grail that I will never part with. I also have a brown floral shirring jsk from baby that is also a holy grail and I'm slightly sad that I have no idea what the name of it is or what year it's from.
>Do you buy new or second hand more?
Oh secondhand for sure! Most of the recent releases haven't been anything I'm into/wanted to spend THAT much money on.
>Anything you wish you had more of?
blouses and tights/socks.
>How do you store clothes/accessories/shoes?
I hang my main pieces and blouses in my closet with the rest of my clothes. I keep most accessories in the top drawer of my dresser, but I hang necklaces on the wall behind my dresser, and I keep bags on one of those over the door hook rack thingys. Also I've got a shoe rack in my closest where I keep shoes.

>How many main pieces do you have?
Including what's coming in the mail, close to 50.
>What's the oldest brand you have?
An AP headdress from back when they were called Pretty.
>What's the most recently released brand you have?
Some Meta LP items.
>Overall theme?
Dark and wearable. I'm not part of a comm so I have no use for flashy dresses to wear at meetups. Even though they're nice to look at I have settled for what I will get the most wear out of.
>Any rare/grail dresses?
AatP Versailles Rose Embroidered JSK used to be my dream dress but now it looks a bit dull compared to the rest. Other than that I'm pretty stoked about owning the Moitie Pleats OP and Gothic Arch JSK.
>Do you buy new or second hand more?
Mostly secondhand unless it's LPs.
>Anything you wish you had more of?
Headbows, but I don't really feel like I need more.. The few I have goes with almost everything.
>How do you store clothes/accessories/shoes?
Pic related. I ran out of space and had to move my dresses to a clothing rack and will soon have to move my blouses over to the cutsew shelf. I'm thinking about purchasing a third closet to store dresses and display accessories.. Or maybe one of those Ikea PAX systems because I'm not really a fan of folded clothes.

Aand who's jumping on the Love Live! Sunshine!! bandwagon before the show even comes out? I'm going to wait until I've watched a bit with my sister, and if it doesn't suck I'll cosplay it.

Is it okay to alter a design for a cosplay if you're just making it sfw?
I would just be covering the cleavage and making the skirt a bit longer, nothing drastic.
no. if you don't cosplay strictly true to canon designs then the cosplay punishment squad reserves all rights to beat you unconcious.
imo that's fine. you kind of have to in some cases if you don't want the cops called on you *i'm lookin at you, ryuko*
but i think it's fine to alter a design a little bit in general anyways, if it's for stylistic reasons, so maybe my opinion doesn't count
