Old skincare thread
Is hemp seed oil (not hemp oil, that's completely different) a good moisturizer for oily, acne, prone skin? I'm working on changing my diet to help reduce my acne as well since I do believe it is hormonal, cutting milk out helped and sugar is the next step, but it's so hard to give up sugar, especially when you're American and in college and it's hard to avoid
Yes Hemp seed oil can be used as a beauty oil. In general any oils higher in Linoleic Acid can be used on an acne prone face with no problems because they are not comedogenic. That does not mean you should stop listening to your skin of course and if you have a reaction, cut it out.
I personally used it for DIY oil cleaning with good results. Be aware it has a shelf life and requires refrigeration. If its not longer brightly green-yellowy colored and loses that nutty smell its gone and turned on you.
So do I just apply it on my skin and leave it or should I only use it as a oil cleanser? I'm new to the whole idea of oil for skincare (except for oil cleansing, I can't live without my Banila Clean It Zero)
Might be a dumb question, but do face rollers/face shapers do anything for anti-aging? I'm in my mid twenties and have always taken excellent care of my skin on the surface- but I feel like I need to do something about the muscles under my skin bc i feel like i'm starting to look saggy sometimes

Lolita, cats, sometimes food, miscellaneous other shit.
Do you guys ever work with poster board? What's the last thing you made?
I have 4 boards left over from a project and I'm looking for ideas aside from more swords and shields
In my experiences, poster board is unreliable unless stacked together, and even then theres 1000x easier ways to do it.
My advice? Go to home depot and invenst in evc foam. It's cheap and flexible. The last thing I made was a mask for my friend's film. Now i'm working on a prop pistol for my friend's blizzcon cosplay.

Come here to whine and gripe about /cgl/ thongs.
The old school OP I bought off Wunderwelt came in today and I love it, but the zip gets stuck halfway and I'll probably have to get it replaced by a tailor.
I guess it's not a big deal but I feel bad altering such nice oldschool brand....
Old one is saging

My contribution because I'm weak for Red in g-lolita.
Is it bad that these shirts are like a dream dress for me? I'd kill someone for this cutsew.

The usual, ask for help and give help.
I know, but they're 25$, hard to get, and that's without shipping it from some shady country. I was looking for alternatives as I don't need much. I have polyester resin and I need a translucent green tinted result.
But i figured i'm just going to airbrush the surface and then put leds under it
Post anything bizarre, or just plain creepy.
Old Thread saging into oblivion
WW has been on a roll adding a bunch of old school items to their main site and to their account on LM. Somebody hit the BIN on a btssb cake purse seconds before I did. One second it was there, the next it was sold out. I miss the old cake bags and cake hats.
Anybody have any old school lolita twinning/coord matching photos?
I just really love oldschool black and white.
and the creative desgins. some stuff you don't see that much anymore
aka "No one cares about your normie Japanese friend mistaking otome for lolita" edition.
What is otome-kei?
>Japanese for 'maiden'
>Focuses on a feminine and quirky look
>No set rules
>Outfits often use colour popping, interesting print combinations, and contrasting materials
>Generally has a kitsch or twee vibe
>Sometimes overlaps with casual lolita but is still a separate style
Main otome brands:
>Emily Temple Cute/Shirley Temple Cute
Other Suitable Brands*:
>Lolita brands (accessories, legwear, bags, mini skirts, cardigans/boleros)
Suitable Non-Japanese Brands*:
>Hello Bones Jones (Indie)
>Mulberry Chronicles (Indie)
>Peppermint Fox (Indie)
>Sock Dreams, Teja Jamilla
>Melissa Shoes, Bait Footwear, Dkode Shoes, Neosen, Fleuvog
*NB: these brands are not all specifically otome, but sometimes produce suitable items
The new Peppermint Fox release looks pretty cute. Will you be getting anything from it? How has their quality been lately?
For when brands put out questionable items. Ads/promotional material such as fashion show coords okay too
Not everyone may find this piece ugly but to me it's an eyesore

What are your favorite prints/motifs/styles/accesories in lolita? What would you like to see more of in the fashion??
My favorite styles are pastel sweet (up to OTT sweet), gothic, hime, and old school. I love space/moon/stars, toys, unicorns, crosses, roses, skulls, Halloween, and stained glass prints. I'm also a really big fan of holographic stuff (think Cotton Candy Feet's holo shoes), chunky platforms, RHS, shaped bags, and big, fluffy, yet natural looking wigs. I would like to see more old school (especially sweet) coordinates, casual sort of everyday coordinates, OTT pastel vomit sweet (miss those days), and more gothic coordinates too that don't lean to classic.
What prints/motifs/styles/accesories that you detest/dislike? What are things that you consider ita? What would you like to see less of or wish would die out in the fashion??
I dislike (but don't hate - other lolitas really pull this off well) browns, chocolate prints, some classic lolita, horizontal row prints (like Promenade de Paris), salopettes (they fit Fairy Kei better) and low waist cuts. I fully hate and find ita split color wigs, belts (unless the coord is more vintage-y), steampunk lolita, blouse-less coordinate trend (unless they're wearing a bolero or something), coords with no legwear, and normie, non-loliable shit mixed into a lolita coord. I would like to see less of OTT classic coords, "rulebreaking" coordinates (like honestly there's a reason why the fashion has rules, so far none of those coords are cute imo), and horrible fandom prints and dresses.
These are all my opinions and you can disagree with me or not, in the end just do you. But what are things that you gulls like and dislike in the fashion?
Solid/No prints, berets, open bust style jsk, high waisted skirts, old school, small poof, natural hair, especially natural short hair, book prints, burgundy, monochrome co ords, knees showing, rule breaking, edgy tumblr lolita, all black coords with silver accessories, long sleeved blouses, high neck blouses with cravats, twinning with boystyle & lolita equivalent, black tights, chunky boots, peeking bloomers
Fruit prints, especially strawberry prints, pastel vomit, too many accessories, socks with prints, full shirring, salopettes, knee socks, unnatural wigs, scepters, stuffed toys with lolita, more than 2 colours in a coord, underskirt, chiffon, peignoirs, massive peter pan collars, teddy bear prints, waist ties, mint green, white shoes, underskirts, sunglasses
cute accessories especially if they're shaped like food,food prints, flower prints and accessories,lace details,POCKETS,ribbons floating in the wind as I walk,headbows and sidebows, pad headdresses (maxi or thin),old school black and white dresses,lace topped OTKs,casual/everyday lolita coords, fluffy hair or wigs, bags shaped like stars and hearts (or even things like biscuits,cats,...),soft pastel colors, bell sleeved dresses or blouses,2004-2009 lolita in general,natural hair,...
steamponk,partially classical lolita (just not a fan of it but i've seen girls wearing it beautifully),super childish sweet, pigtails in general especially high pigtails, OTT in general (i like seeing it once in a while especially 2012 ott sweet because it's nostalgic to me but OTT being the norm is bleh),super big peter pan collars,minihats,row prints (little bear cafe could have been so cute), salopettes, babydoll and low waist cuts (even if you're skinny it just looks weird to me), split color wigs in any color, fandom/walmart fabric handmade dresses (they look terrible 99% of the time), pony prints,...
Food prints especially drinks and parfaits and cake, pastel prints, printed cutsews, food themed accessories like hats, platform shoes, over the knee socks, cork shoes, aprons especially heart shaped ones, school/sailor themed dress, blouseless coordinates, simple solid color bags, wigs especially candy colored ones and the color combinations pink x yellow, pink x sax, pink x red, and pink x white
Anything brown or chocolate themed, shiny fabric, all over printed dresses, sack dresses, high waisted dresses, sack dresses, sandal or open toed shoes, black colored sweet prints/"bittersweet", uncombed wigs, wigs with uncut bangs, thin/chiffon fabric, wigs with thick bangs, gold and silver accents, animal shaped bags, dresses that go past knee length, and the weird lavender angelic pretty uses that either looks blue or grey
