>how did you fall in love with lolita
Um i saw some dresses one day on tumblr and wanted to find out more i always had like a vauge idea of what it was but i wanted to go in deeper.
>What things do you like about it?
Its aesthetic mostly i always had a thing for old classic paintings and things of that nature and old European i like how borrows from that while being its own thing.
>What is your favourite style?
>What is your favourite era of lolita?
I'm still quite new at understanding the different lolita eras but i would say Victorian.
>Any special feeling it brings you while looking at it or wearing it?
I feel like a monarch or aristocracy from Europe
>What/Who is your inspiration for lolita?
Milky fawn mostly
>>How did you fall in love with lolita?
2002, Mana pictures on friends' GeoCities websites.

>>What things do you like about it?
the marriage of innocence and subversiveness. quality clothing from independant brands (even the biggest brands are small compared to mass produced fast fashion). a unique silhoutte that has a seeming infinite range of variations within a rather structured rule set.

lolita is artful, like formal* poetry you can wear, expressing individuality through a specific visual vocabulary.

*formal as opposed to free verse, not formal as opposed to informal

>>What is your favourite style? (sweet,gothic,classic,...)
EGL, EGA, and gothic ouji.

>>What is your favourite era of lolita?
now, and a little bit into the future (i imagine), as the resurgance of interest in iconic EGL grows against the influences of the OTT classic/sweet eras. i look forward to a gothic comeback, not based in print culture but in the silhouette and details of the mid-2000s, updated to modern sensibilities without falling for current fads. the gothic branches of lolita have strong roots in the global gothic community that i fancy a return to.

>>Any special feeling it brings you while looking at it or wearing it?
comfy and creative, inspirational and imaginative.

>>What/Who is your inspiration for lolita?
WHO: Mana, LiveJournal-era Chokelate, Arthael, Iiraliina, Buttcape, and Bakasoseji when he still wore ouji.

WHAT: historic fiction, horror, and fantasy. gothic subculture apart from lolita. street fashion, progressiveness, and counter-culture beauty.

>pic related, an iconic EGL look to me
>How did you fall in love with lolita
I honestly can't say I really know. I know I knew of the fashion vaguely in my teen years before I truly discovered it in my early 20's.
>what things do you like about it?
I like how modest it is but mostly I love how lolita looks like the clothes you see girls in old storybooks wearing
>What is your favourite style?
>What is your favourite era of lolita?
I would say 2010. I know that era is renowned for being the height of ott sweet but I liked how the focus on that let classic be simpler and more casual than it is now.
>Any special feeling it brings you while looking at it or wearing it?
Like I said I love looking like something from a fairytale.
>What/Who is your inspiration for lolita?

You seriously made a thread for this OP? We aren't even close to having international level cons so why give people a anonymous platform to make international level drama?
>Most of the convention is teen weebs though
>Doubt they know about CGL
if i cosplay as this guy there will i be okay?

Alright, I thought this subject would be interesting. What are some alternates of popular characters that nobody seems to cosplay for some reason? My example is the plethora of cute Madoka outfits that are ignored in favor of their magical girl ones. Anything goes, I'm just interested in seeing more cases like this.

every dave strider outfit that isnt his red raglan (which gets confused for his starting outfit way too many times), god tier, or felt duds suit
In your case, your pic is a collab between a Japanese fashion brand & the Madoka franchise. It serves not much meaning to the series itself. Hence it is understandable that not much people does costume out of it.

Staying on the topic, any Vocaloid outfits in Project Diva franchise. There's so many songs to pick with a variety of costumes specially designed for the songs. The default versions are so overdone, might as well pick a cute costume from a nice PV.
Oh yeah, the collab picture was the only thing I have on my phone but I meant the cute card outfits that're laying around too -- you'd think with all the fandesigns floating around people would indulge in more official stuff.

Good point though, you don't really see any vocaloid cosplayers that aren't just the same couple outfits.

Old one is autosaging.

I'm trying to throw together a valentines themed coord with stuff that I already have. I have a white peter pan collar blouse that I'll put the collar over the cardigan so my neck isn't so boring. And I'll wear the cardigan open, with the two buttons at top buttoned.
Otherwise I really need some recs for accessories that I can get domestically (I live in the US); I feel like what I have right now just looks cheap.

Reposting from previous thread.
maybe go for some heart stuff? A heart shaped or patterned purse could be cute, something in white/pink. You could find heart clips and jewelry on amazon and most normie stores honestly. check modcloth for more unique stuff too.

I live 10 minutes away from the convention center but decided to check out the hotel prices for the AX block.

Was the Ritz and every other fancy hotel really completely booked 20 minutes after the email went out?
5 minutes in it got sold out. Their site went down amd they didn't post a direct link for a few minutes. Costs people rooms.

There's a huge comm where I live and they do meets all the time but I'm not ready to join yet. I kind of hate people in general so joining a comm can wait for me.
However, I'm not looking to be a lone lolita forever, but I don't really care if no one sees me in it. I just keep on buying dresses too.
I think I just like the clothing itself and I've really approached the fashion with a collectors intent, and not just a hobby.

So are you in it for the comm or do you like wearing the dresses too? If you like the dresses and wearing them who cares if anyone sees them unless that's what you care about?
I feel like the cosplay community has changed too much. I feel like everyone's trying to outdo each, whether it's through sex appeal, over the top costumes/props or cosplaying the latest popular series first. It's all about going further and further. I know this kind of competition has probably always existed but lately it just feels so crazy.

do you bring up the fact that you cosplay in job interviews? what about when they google your name beforehand and they already know? most people consider anime drawings to be poison in an artists professional portfolio, but what about pictures of your costumes? do you keep it quiet as though it's a liability, or pronounce it proudly as a critical aspect of your skills and personality? does it depend on what the job/company/career is?

>using your real name on the Internet

what a retard

it's not hard to find someone's cosplay handle by searching their real name.
I saw a girl in the fashion industry post about making specs of cosplays to show versatilily. I'm pretty proud of my flats as well, and I'm supposed to be working on a portfolio and wondering if I should put in more fanciful things as well, since I can't illustrate for shit.

What's your biggest pet peeve when it comes to cosplay?
What bothers you more than anything in the cosplay industry, that multiple cosplayers seem to do?

My biggest pet peeve is when cosplayers take "sexy" bed photos in cosplays(characters) that are in armor or fighting gear, or just look out of place because of the characters personality. I don't mind if people want sexy bed photos, but if you are dressed as a warrior or something it seems so out of place! Plus, wouldn't you much rather have a badass photo of yourself in an action shot, rather than looking awkward on some bedroom setup that 500 other cosplayers have used? IDK, it just really bothers me!

Sexy bed photos are cringe and awkward enough as it is, but an ex-friend of mine did a bunch of Mememe ones on a clearly hotel bed. Nothing is worse than trying to be sexy and seeing something out of place in the cosplay, like having it in a bad room or out of place items in the background.

Ultimate example of this was a horrifically cringeworthy set of Homestuck cosplayers who did a shibari rope fetish shot in their messy hotel room. So cringe.
People whinging about what other people do and not just minding their own business and tending to their own cosplay goals/creations. Just do your cosplays, be as good as you can be and don't worry about what others are doing so much that you have to bitch about them.

What do you do when you want to buy a certain dress but you can't quite bring yourself to buy it? I want this dress and have wanted it forever but now it's for sale I'm not entirely sure. It would fit in with the rest of my wardrobe.
Should I just buy it anyway in case I regret not buying it?

I'd probably snag if you can. To me it hits the main points of why I'd get a dress

>wishlist dress
>goes with wardrobe
>on sale

I'm sure you can still resell it if it doesn't work out.

I just popped these out! The cat and the heart still need to be glazed/have the back filled in but the others are ready to be drilled and made into earrings.
The ones with words are kind of edgy, but the 3oh!3 one is a running joke and I thought they'd be suitable for Valentine's Day.
I'm thinking of making cabochon-esque resin crafts. If I'm putting a picture into a cameo setting, will the resin make the ink run on photopaper? Or should I print my background on something else/use some kind of sealant before adding the resin?

In the spirit of Valentine's Day and White Day, let's look at lolita and related jfash (boystyle, otome, etc.) coords featuring two people whose outfits look good together.

tl;dr Share your couple inspo pics!

Why don't people cosplay Wedding Peach? Oh yeah, because the anime was a terrible Sailor Moon clone.

I don't see very much ranma 1/2. Maybe a shampoo or female ranma here and there. Also serial experiments lain would be pretty cool.
Wasn't Tokyo mew mew as well?

I think they look nice but you are right that they are generally associated with porn.
