Get your spook on.
Ugh, most of my images are on my other laptop, so I can only dump shit from 2010 and earlier rn.
Can we all just agree that things like aristocrat ouji and dandy aren't really Lolita? I hate how whenever someone bring this up the first counter argument is "YA WELL IN JAPAN". One day, I’d like to be able to respond with "Too bad, son, I'm putting them down. Step aside, I'm a professional." Of course, that’s a lie. I’m not a professional. But I have to start somewhere.
I despise seeing men wear this shit to a meet. You want to be a lolita? Then you have to wear a fucking dress. That's right, get those nappies on. Then all us girls get to poke fun at you when you get an embarrassing erection from wearing girl clothes.
There is no progress thread
Let's change that and help keep other anons motivated!
What are you working' on?
Currently I'm working on Raidou Kuzunoha for Sakura-Con next month and I am very happy with the way that everything is turning out! It just sucks that I doubt I will be able to wear this costume at any summer cons, especially since I live in AZ
Started working on Aizn from Overlord for my boyfriend. Working on the shoulder pieces this weekend. I hope I can avoid the problems tiny shoulder problems I've seen in other costumes.

ITT: very poofy lolita coords
lots of quality videos coming out from Katsu, post cosplay vidyas ITT
Our casual lolita is in serious trouble. I mean, we've had a lot of casual lolita threads here that were, you know, not really good, all reposts, no action. We don't have victories anymore. We used to have victories, but we don't have them anymore, when was the last time anyone saw a good casual lolita thread? Let me tell you, posting normal lolita coords is a very, very big problem, and you know, really, for us as a community. They sent their normal lolita coords to a casual lolita thread, illegally, they beat us all the time, all the time. They bring in any coord, they bring in crime, that is so bad. They're sending us, probably, probably, not the right coords. Because they do a thing like making OTT the new normal. They knowingly, you know, don't tell the truth. And They're gonna, they want to raise customs. One of the things with the, with our Japanese lolitas--and I have many friends there, I do business with Japan--but, that, they wear things like, they wear Fi.n.t, Emikyu, Milk, and say it's casual lolita. They say カジュアルロリィタ. And, you know, nobody, nobody speaks up about that. Misako calls it, she calls it soft lolita, but she is, really, she's a known liar. She's said half of us are fatty-chans. We are going to take back kajurori, and it's going to be great. This thread will decide wether we are ruled by a corrupt OTT class, or we are ruled by, you know, people. The forgotten men and women of this fashion. But I don't care about that stuff anymore. It's like small potatoes, right. I, really, have great optimism for the future of casual lolita. And JOBS. Oh boy.

How do you pronounce taobao?
it's pronounced pretty much how it's spelled.
Táobǎo is the pinyin, if you're worried about correct tones
just don't pronounce it like a dumbass with an american accent and you'll be good
don't listen to >>9376476, you'll sound stupid. the 'a' and 'o' have a more rounded sound, like you're saying "awl" or "aw"
A thread for experiences in which you were all dressed/dolled and something unforseen occurred.
>me, lifestyle lolita out at movies with boyfriend like a normie
>excited for movie, all pretty in frills
>100% forgot he mentioned about a year ago that his ex worked at the movie theatre, plus he never mentioned which one
>I've never met this person in my life but she seemed vaguely familiar, pic related is exactly how I looked at her
>boyfriend pulls me away, the girl still tries to talk to us, seems urgent
>"you're the girl he cheated on me with"
>on... you? He cheated on you with me?
>pic related is now how I'm looking at boyfriend
>find out my boyfriend cheated on me
>she recognized me because of my frils
>Google how to tie a noose
Somehow after something like this you don't feel too pretty no matter how cute you thought you looked before.
So what sort of reference material is available on the whole bancho/juvenile delinquent thing.
As in, ACTUAL REFERENCE MATERIAL. Of course it's been a pop-culture thing now for ages and exaggerated for anime/films, but how did they actually look?
Can discuss Bōsōzoku too.
This books seems exactly the thing that i'm looking for, but guess it's been out of print for ages
I love sukeban so much but it's hard to find even shitty cosplay quality uniforms with long skirts
Yet again a larp thread which is for discussing everything related to Live Action Role Play and the like.

Anybody know where to get SCA grade churburg plates for cheap? I want a nice curved breastplate to wear for light armor over my current bulky armor but don't know where to get one for the best price.
Larping in Russia as a non-Russian. How scary is it?
I've been to Russia a couple of times, and finding a Russian that actually speaks, or even UNDERSTANDS basic English is so rare. I mean no offence, I was just baffled that not even the staff at the main trainstations or any restaurants knew anything but Russian or Polish.
Larping in forgeign countries have never been a problem, even without German I do just fine in Drachenfest. Even some of the 10y/o kids spoke English when trying to rob me in a pub, wich was fkn adorable.
WH 2017: Forest of Gloom, Moscow. Go or no-go? Will I die?
well, what's the worst that can be happen? the Mushroom Elves no longer goes to russian larps, so I would say you are pretty much safe as long as you have common sense
Dresses that are impossible to find due to limited or non existent releases.
This cut, this colorway. I have never seen it for sale. The other cuts and colors do pop up every now and then but never orange.
Only ever seen one ages-old listing for it and am losing hope of ever seeing it for sale.
Last thread went bye bye. Why is this Symmetra so sub-par in quality to the group? How many more DVA's will flood cons? What are you working on?
Nothing new under the sun edition
Aliexpress a great alternative to ebay, and small order alternative to Taobao.

The delivery status of my package hasn't really changed since a month ago and it's worrying. What can I do?
Eh, looks like the tracking stopped working once it left China which isn't very unusual. Wait until you only have a few days of buyer protection left and open a case of it hasn't arrived by then.
Plan on doing more physical vending of my crappy lolita wares, so I'm buying up some cute jewelry displays. So far I ordered the white deer and two of the lower-left racks because budgeting. Definitely taking recommendations for more displays and mannequin hands/ring display stuff.
This is normal. Expect it in one more month.
So this happen! Oh my the shit you find out about cons. Some dumb ass neckbeard wants a baby I guess?? 10$ and I bet someone come out that was under age of consent. Some grade "A" derp with this lot.
