I swear to god I'm not baiting, but I got so excited and was just about to buy these before I read the description. How likely is it that I'm going to be seen as trans/fakeboy/"appropriating" if I wear these socks online and irl? In lolita and out of it. I don't live in a super liberal area or go to gay bars, but the other subcultures I'm into have have tons of people straight out of tumblr. I'm not really much worried about being attacked or "caring about people's opinions" I just hate constantly getting asked about things enough already and I don't want to attract that crowd.
New LWLN is up for ILD
Just wanted to get some inspiration for a possible event. Post some sweet coords!
Would also love to see Sweet Lolita photos from events. I tend to see a lot of gothic/classic coords
Don't know what to do with the hair yet, but how's the Eren Jaeger cosplay?
How do you feel, knowing that buzzfeed is showing you guys up.
This is what peak cosplay looks like.
This is what you should be aiming for.
Hmm, maybe I should read Bezerk, and ideas where a good site to read Bezerk would be?
You may not like it, but this is what true craftsmanship looks like.
It helps a little that the babe doing the cosplay is smoking hot too ;)
>Fanime Hires lack luster guests, employs mostly volunteers, charges for the arcade and is ran for profit but also as cheaply as possible
>AX charges for the arcade, concerts and even the masquerade in addition for the badge. Bag check also cost money
Everywhere else outside of CA does not charge for big guests or the arcade yet CA loves piling on the charges. Why is it like this?
This might shock you, but cons around the globe do this. Stop attending them or research conventions you want to attend to see if it's shit or not. Even just asking around might tell you if you may enjoy a con elsewhere.
Please, try to help at least 3 people, or everyone else will be discouraged to help you.
>Be nice with each other and constructive criticism only.
Just done mine. Suggestions please? I'm into anything desu, Animes, HQs and Games
I really like Torhu for you but a lot of your ideas are good, Wicke and Galko would both be good fits for you and Kanako Mimura would too plus you've got your choice of costumes.
A few people also suggested Mei from Overwatch and I have to agree, but it's not on your idea list anymore so maybe you're not into it? Which is fair.
Yeah man I'm feeling the Greed, simple and sweet with a good design.
Megacon is in 1 week. Are you ready?
>What days are you going?
>What events are you doing?
>Where are you staying?
>What costumes/what days?
>Biggest relief/Biggest gripe
Coords that are not quite right.
This girl needs to get different shoes.

WTS: Atelier Pierrot Princess Bustle Corset Dress
Looks more grey in the stock photos, but it's black in person
I bought it secondhand, but it doesn't really seem to have been worn by anyone
I haven't worn it because I can't come up with a coord for it, I mostly wear sweet, this was kind of an impulse buy
It's a gorgeous dress, but it's just not for me
I'm looking to sell it for $230 plus $8 domestic shipping (usa), but I'm open to reasonable offers
Please feel free to ask questions if you have any
reposting from last thread!
WTB either of these AP accessories!
Magic Amulet veil in wine
Magic Bat headdress in silver
priority to the veil.
feedback on lacemarket @anja_elisabeth
a while ago in one of the proto-lolita threads, some anons were complaining about the loss of the connection between lolita and vivienne westwood. Use this as an inspo/discussion thread for coords with VW pieces (other than just shoes because, let's face it, that's still pretty common)
What is your opinion on middle aged people cosplaying younger characters?

Wtf chill. I was fucking driving all day holy shit.
I can't name and shame because it's not a lolita seller. It was on the fluevog secondhand sales.
Con's pretty much happening and about damn time too. I'm going this afternoon! Anyone else going to be there Wednesday?
Also, my money is on pic related being on the 4 day pass. RIP
Hey saxton hale fits with the theme of the Kalahari

Only got 3 out of My original 4 cosplays done (Olivia not picfured) but just gotta do some last min alters and fixes and I'm ready to head down tomorrow!!
