>Closet of Chills Edition
From AP USA's Halloween party.
Oops, forgot to link to old thread!
Almost all-Bodyline coord.
Really like this oldschool coord!
A lot of cons have formal dances as one of their events. What are your guys' opinion on them. Like them? Hate them? Go to them?
I make an effort to go to one if whatever con has one. Usually take a few shots before going and force myself to dance with strangers. I've even gone on dates with girls I've met there.
Plus, it's nice to actually see variety since people are in cosplay instead of just the typical dress or suit

>gf really dislikes lolita
>I've wanted to get into the fashion for ages, just put together my first coord and feel super cute in it
>she confesses to me she thinks I look really nice and says she know feels differently about lolita
I'm so happy I could tear up a little. I wouldn't stop dressing how I like for a SO but it feels so nice to know she likes to see me in this.
Pic extremely unrelated to my kind of feels but eh, feels thread!
>don't make a lot of money and due to rent/student loans/adult responsibilities can't really save any
>I like my job so I don't want to leave, can sometimes get extra income through commissions as well
>feel guilty when I buy lolita because I could have put money into savings or student loans or something responsible
Maybe I should get a second job.
It's time for a secret/confession thread. I begin.
I always need to have someone from cute jfash to ""stalk"" not in a "i wanna wear her skin" or "i wanna touch her bum" way, i just need to have some interesting person to stalk it makes my life feel more interesting? Look at their rooms,purchases,outfits,... I used to stalk some casual sweet lolita that lived in Paris years ago but she stopped lolita and became super normal. I used to stalk some lolita on a forum (when it was a thing) a bit but she stopped too. Years ago i did the same with Kotakoti and Venus for a while then got bored when they became boring at the end of 2012.
Now i have no one to stalk but the archives to look at what i can find...I'm so bored really. I would never ever follow them in real life if i saw them, probably just sneak to see if they are doing something nice but just leave.
I have kind of a OCD behaviour so it's pretty normal for me to become obsessed with some crap except i hide it and it's just people or things like old school sweet lolita for example (where i will stalk old lolita forums). But it's my secret though, no one knows about that.
My girlfriend likes to fuck me in full ouji coords. She has a thing for defiling princes, so the more expensive the coord the better.
At first I didnt know what to think about fucking in brando but now its really exciting.
go to the other thread if you want to whine about kate, I want to hear about actual comms
Are you comms doing any fun meet-ups this month?
let it all out, gulls
Trying to organize holiday stuff for my comm. Last year we went downtown and it was insanely crowded and we were all harassed by tourists, so I'm hoping to book a private room at a restaurant or something. Sadly though my comm is one of those where people are cheap about pre-paying for meets so I predict I will get resistance to going anywhere decent.
Pax has come and gone. Only Brisnova and Adelaide Supanova remain on the calendar this year.
>see any good shit at PAX?
>what did you dislike?
>have beethy and kris had a brawl in an alley yet?
There's a strong lack of visual kei on this board right now.
and you started off with my first love too. very good choice.
i want old vkei to make a comeback. i want these big ass hairdos and clothes to be incorporated. I love the old vkei style, I how well organized the community of fashion is like compared to lolitas do.
Recently i saw photos on my twitter about visual kei cosplay in a bar in Japan, looks fun.
also i abosuletely love this photo as well as all their hair and outfits. it's beautifully adorned, especially my first love's hair. like the color's and streaks.
If it wasn't consistently 100 degrees in Florida I'd bring back old school visual kei cosplay right away.
Good cosplay photos/poses.
We talk about bad stuff all the time. How about some cool stuff?
Why does Spidey have arthritis?
I always though these were better Spidey pics
NO MORE DEAD CONS!
Arizona has finally struck back and ended a Monkey Paw con. I honestly don't think I saw more than 100 people.
Old one saging

Does anyone know where I can get a tricorn? I typed '三角帽' but I keep getting cheap party hats. Something with gold accents would be great but I would be happy with something solid black. I'm doing a taobao order soon and I'd rather get it there, commissioning one would be my last resort.
Does anyone know what this means?
I'm trying to buy it but I don't get what I have to buy to get it.
Where do you get your lenses?
Bought any recent one? Review them!
Have any questions, drop them there.
Where can I get lenses that are orange/yellowish?
i want to see more like this- less costumey, more "real" cosplays. where the dresses are intracate and the wigs are multi-toned and look more like real hair. is there a name for it? historically accurate? grounded?
I'm torn, OP.
I like seeing some more realistic costumes sometimes, especially when done well/right but far too often people try to do this and just end up adding a bunch or unnecessary bling to make the gowns 'fancy' or 'real-life' instead of tackling the (more difficult) source material.
Examples I'm specifically put off by being the style popularized by homestuck's FancyTier bullshit and hoards of inaccurate disney princesses.
I find that the above groups typically do this so that they can stand out of a crowd special snowflake style too.
I tend to group this sort of thing with shitty steampunk versions, AU, etc.
tl;dr, I like OP's pics but all the other similar bullshit in the community has left a bad taste in my mouth.
I love how jfash stores decorate, so let's have a store/schowcase thread!

Do you still use animal novelty bags? Usakumya is mildly popular, and Meta released a leopard and squirrel bag this year. AP released those bat bags for HG/HL. Do you miss them? Never liked them?
I own two Usakumya bags, a mini mini black x blue and this Ivory version of Usakumya. I love the early Usakumyas. I've used mine occasionally but would like to use them more, they do look nice in a room though.
Is anyone planning on attending AkibaExpo? It's a first year con hosted in Anaheim, California. I wanted to go since it's about a 20 minute drive from my house but I'm double thinking it because there's been some shady business practices and drama surrounding the event and it's CEO. Anyone heard anything about it? The facebook event page is trying to do damage control as we speak
