let's try not to double post
btssb key to heaven
not a popular dress upon release, almost all colourways and cuts are still available because of that kitchen tile print
it doesn't look too bad worn but on the stock photos it was quite ugly
yes, she's very pretty
I'm not the one in the picture but it drives me mad when people who offer to take photos at meets such at it. I usually offer to do it for everyone else, take several poses and angles, fix anything like flipped up hems or uneven socks or flyaway hairs, take several pictures to make sure they aren't blinking, then send them all to the individual while we are still at the meet so they can get another shot if I missed something.
Then I pass my phone to someone to get my picture. Blurry, no feet, tip of head chopped off, one picture with awkward smile, one picture with fat angle. Oh well.
Well, at least it includes a petticoat?
The random black bow and her demon portal to hell eyes don't look good. Also, the eye jewels are as dumb as always and the hood is sitting super high. It is otherwise kind of cute.
This always happens to me too. I try to take several shots, help straighten out the person's coord, etc. Then when they take my picture, it's an unfocused, uncentered mess. Every time.
This is the reason why I don't even try with OTT... it looks like this girl just went to her wardrobe and started picking items randomly. When you look it at distance looks kind of cute, but then you realize, wtf is going on with the ribbon and pearls, sailor shirt, apron...
The ears headdress combine with the purse - OK
The sailor shirt with the socks - OK
The apron - I dunno I just want more shit on me
Those RH shoes - wat this is supposed to be OTT?
The red ribbon with pearls - same as with the apron
The jsk - doesn't match with any of the items above but it's red and has a very ott-like print so YEA
That things in the eyes - again, I want to be OTT so MOARR
tl;dr: what a mess.
so angry desu
Decent coord, but heir unkempt hair, lack of makeup, and mirror shot ruin it. Looks like a beginner who has a lot of room to improve, but a decent start.
Objectively I can't find anything wrong, but it feels lacking somehow. Cute face though
I actually really like the brown, it's hard to work with such contrast but she pulled it off imo.
if your phone's got self timer, set it up on a bookshelf or something/put your camera on a stack of books/boxes/whatever. you don't need a tripod to take good outfit shots, but it helps! you can also get these mini phone tripods on ebay for a few bucks.
Eye jewels are cute if they're centered, so these aren't. But she could have made it work with some bracelets or rings with similar looking rhinestones. The bear headdress is placed a little odd but it'd be cute too if she balanced out the bottom with short fur-topped socks or shoes.
Moitie ita has really improved. I like this coord. You dont often see white x blue moitie coords
I like how she's open to concrit and how she actually uses it. She's improving and it shows.
I wouldn't say improved, that looks like a dodgy bolero/shrug, the gloves are pretty bad too.
I actually didn't even know she was still around, I still have her placed in about 2012.
Because people at her level are usually life long itas. Maybe it's just an American mentality, but everyone loves a good underdog story and to see such improvement as a direct involvement of the community is awesome. She never makes excuses like oh I can't afford a petticoat or my blouse was too hot so I didn't want to wear it, she just comments "ok" and then applies it to a new coord the next week.
So what? You sound pressed. She's an ita that is improving and becoming less of an ita. She also shows signs of having some sort of mental challenge, which in spite of she listens to more experienced Lolita. Most take advice and start a shit storm, where as she gives some thought and consideration. Maybe she is slow to improve, but she is improving and that is something that makes anons feel good because she gives them a good and reasonable excuse to relieve some of the salt most itas bring up in any anon. So you don't like her. So you aren't happy with her slow progress. Okay, so you're a salty cunt. But shut up and let the other anons have their fun, because for once it is about us bringing someone up instead of tearing them it down, and maybe some of us want that when we're done eating ita.
Okay friend. You do that.
I'm a fan of this, love red x black coords
So she's sharing it publicly now?
I kind of feel like it's neither a good actual outfit nor a good costume. Utilitarian, legitimate gear like that with pretty polyester lady dresses. It clashes.
her head looks like it belongs on a completely different shaped body
I know the angle is from above but I would think that would have stretched out her neck and lifted her chin up to look into the camera instead of... Whatever has happened here
I find this super offensive and weird, but i cant be bothered to comment on the post. She spoilt a good coord, and a well taken picture for once by putting a great big fucking gun there, fucking americans and your guns
I would see it being offensive if she was pointing it at someone acting like she was going to kill them, but she's literally just holding an antique. Whether you like or not, because the size of it is awkward and weird in the photo, but it's a completely unoffensive gesture to hold a gun that makes sense with the theme.
Fair enough, but I don't personally agree. If she made an ISIS coord then that would be fucked, but you're basically arguing that the gun was the issue and not some larger problem overall. That's like saying don't post photos of your car because there was a pile up on the freeway the other day.
Not other anon but I don't like guns in lolita just because the pro-gun crowd's a bunch of wackos and edgetards. It's like how wearing cat ears in lolita is looked down upon because furries are freaks. We don't need that association.
What on earth is unkempt about her hair? Granted that shitty dirty mirror makes it hard to discern exactly.
Too much stuff that doesn't really go together, looks sort of tacked-on.
This. Especially when you're a short girl and they take the picture from way overhead, making you look like a stump.
>Our coven is secure.
this made me laugh a lot anon
the only reason people thinks she still looks bad is because her face isn't objectively pretty and she has some awkward posing. seriously if you cover her face up her coordinates are nitpicks at best, at this point.
You have a point, shitfests always occur when gulls know the person. It's like Kate, Hello Batty, or Voldie getting posted.
I can see why people don't like it, but I think people just want to complain because it's the closest thing to an issue that's come up in a while. I don't see the big deal, but I get why others do, I just wish they'd actually critique coords and stop fighting with each other.
My thought anytime I see a big armed girl with a shortsleeve blouse hiking up into her pits
Tacky, and you can barely see the outfit details well. Of what we can see, the actual coord is pretty meh-tier anyway so it seems pretty cloying for attention as well.
>in b4 whiteknights
Same and I don't even sweet, her coords are well color balanced
I don't think the gun she's holding is really comparable to the ones used in mass shootings, which tend to be semi or fully automatic and modern.
Besides isn't that what the terrorists want? To make us live in fear and distaste?
You hit the nail on the head for me. I don't get offended in the way /cgl/ associates with Tumblr. It's this inward cringe. If cat ears look bad, if fandom shit looks bad, if unnecessary gears look bad, if staffs and Madonna crowns look bad, so does this.
This makes no fucking sense at all.
I wish we could get more of these kinds of people to leave the group so it would get less retarded.
This is what I'm trying to say. I don't think a good chunk of the people in this thread hate it JUST because it offends them. Sometimes "in poor taste" is just...poor fucking taste.
And even then, this looks objectively pretty bad to me. She ruined an okay coord. Not an amazing coord, but a pretty nice one.
I dont know what her name is so i stuck with that...i feel bad but i legit dont know what else to call her. I think she's pretty cute and it doesnt look like she has many friends because even her good coords rarely get over 20 notes.. I am glad she has improved so much though, even if it may have been slowly. I envy a lot of the pieces she has and i wish i could help her coord them though i dont think her english is strong enough for that
Her real name is Nelly, and I'm glad she is improving, though it took a while. This is the best coord she's done yet, but she has some sort of mental deficiency. She's pretty much just on a low-comprehension level; her French is just as bad, so I don't know if concrit will really help her as much as the other girl, she just may need to keep seeing good examples that she'd want to emulate.
Was, she got it hence why she stopped tripping (thank god).
HDchan posted in the DD threads for a long time looking for the Hospitality Doll set. She got this absurdly rabid fanfollowing for whatever reason and then started to trip for the attention, with conversation over her taking over the threads for ages until she finally got her set.
Now since people know who she is off-anon because she's pretty they lick her boots in other threads where she selfposts and on COF.
>I am super salty over her tacky attentionwhoring ass, yes
I love her look, but the coord is sort of meh and the gun is unnecessary and kind of edgy. I think elements like the hat and other military-ish elements can create the vibe she's going for without literally carrying a gun.
Does anyone know if HD has an instagram? I'd follow her tumblr but I don't really care about the other stuff she reblogs.
Jesus it wasn't even that bad, though. Most of the time it was other people talking about her and I don't actually think she self posts, because she's really open to honing up to whatever posts are hers.
Last one, It belongs in the ita thread desu
I have this theory that she's like super trolling just so everyone will be impressed by every tiny bit of progress she makes. Like, her hair finally looks better, so next she'll finally stop having that weird poop expression in all her photos. She's almost kind of smiling here. Then maybe one day: makeup, and everyone will lose their shit
>sage for tinfoil hat
sometimes good things happen, anon.
you know how you try to get babies to talk by having them repeat words? and you get so excited when they finally say a couple, even though you've been coaxing them to do a dozen or more. once they get the first couple words, the others begin to follow, and then they start pairing them together, and before you know it, sentences and stories and lies are happening.
everyone learns in baby steps.
I absolutely adore this, she looks like a gothic wintery queen.
Cute and simple
That hair suits her so well, I'm glad she sorted it out. I think this is also the best I've seen Sleeping Beauty look in navy, I usually hate this colorway of it but the matching jewelry elevates it so much. Underskirt also balanced out for once.
I think my only tiny nitpick would be the tights are a slight shade off but that's a reeeal nitpick since it's probably just the lighting/camera.
I don't hate this... Well, I hate that dress in general but I think the accessorizing and coord works apart from the legwear that I can see, but not necessarily for her. The dress is way too big/long for her, the bonnet doesn't really suit her and that makeup is pretty bad. She should really get the dress taken in at the waist to shorten it, for starters.
I think a lighter lip color would do her better, lessen up the blush and maybe move it higher up on her cheeks a little, and open up her eyes with a less heavy eyeshadow as well. Maybe liner would do her better than just a heavy shadow? As is it honestly looks like how older ladies do their makeup. I really think the unfortunate makeup is the biggest offender overall apart from dress fit.
Is it bad that I kinda like this color combo? There's just something about it that works to me. I do feel like this doesn't work as a fall coord though, the color scheme is too spring-ish.
Personally I feel like the lavenders don't match and the flowers look out of place with the star theme.
And its just a personal dislike for those giant ass bonnets. She's so tiny its large size looks like its engulfing her head.
>huge candy colored split wig
>clubbing in lolita
I don't think I can handle all this class.
I really like the two colours together too, I think they look nice. The coord's not really working for me though...maybe if she did her shoes the same colour as the blouse to tie it in? Or maybe patterned tights with a hint of the pink shade and white shoes? idk. The gold seems a little out of place and it doesn't feel like everything is tied together which is a shame.
I can't stop looking at her chest in this . Something about it just doesn't look right. Maybe poor bra support or where the jumper is all rumpled up.
I like this other than the fact that I feel the shorts are too short. It almost looks like she forgot to put on her skirt and went out in her under things.
To me, it looks like the hips are too tight as well- the way it's so tight/flat around the crotch area. Too bad since the rest is nicely balanced, this girl is very good at balancing color and print.
The shorts are way too short/tight and the tights seem really busy next to everything else. I get that she was trying to use them to tie the black, white, and red together, but it seems really unbalanced to have all that detail on ber legs. I would rethink the beret and the tights entirely.
This would be better with a more appropriate cardigan and better spacing of the hair flowers (but I think she mentioned the latter in the post). Not sure how I feel about the pattern on the tights either.
Yeah she did mention the flowers. I think she could have used more, probably going down the ponytail.
What's wrong with the cardigan? It's got bows all over the front from what I can tell from the picture, so it's not boring by any means.
Are you high? She's cute enough and the blouse is ok, but everything else needs to be ditched and totally reworked. This is borderline ita. I love this dress but it is so damn hard to do right.
PLEASE don't tell me this is Powder Rose Anon..?
She needed long boots to make this acceptable and good looking. If the fabric were more textured (maybe like a wool or heavy quilted texture) it would look way better. The overall idea is pretty good too. Not sure why everyone is offended by the guns though, maybe it's because I'm murrican. She also reminds me of a watered down Katya from drag race.
Honestly I'm more rustled over the idea of props in lolita. Doesn't really make sense that a Russian soldier would want to dress in poofy dresses that can't stand the motherland's harsh winters.
When did /cgl/ become so sensitive over a gun that's not even being shot? We've had people posing with swords with no issue at all. I'm no huge fan of guns, but here it makes sense instead of that stupid fucking sweet lolita with a big black gun.
will dump for a bit
I really liked this one, but at first I thought it was that Bodyline dress.
>>My local comm had a Thanksgiving picnic over the weekend- though considering that the walk for breast cancer was also rolling through town, it was quite the day to end up in a head-to-toe pink coord!
>>head-to-toe pink coord!
Maybe I'm going blind but this does not look pink to me whatsoever.
There are pink elements in the coord (namely the shoes, bag, and possibly the lace overlay on the skirt portion of the dress... and maybe the hair accessory too? it's so small I can't tell) but it's definitely not "head to toe pink".
I can't help but feel this coord would benefit a lot from an underskirt (not one of those ridiculously long ones that are popular now, one that's long enough to make the dress look like it's knee length), different OTKs or lace tights, and different shoes. The color of the shoes is fine, I think, but they're very bulky and don't work well with the classic look she's going for.
It's not absolutely horrid but it could be infinitely better, basically.
Oh hey that's me! Yeah, it's kind of a weird color that I've defaulted to calling pink. I'd call it blush or dusty rose, but every time I do I think about the blood orange "it's fucking red" guy.
Thank you for the concrit! To be frank, it's not my favorite coord I've ever done either. I have the same sentiment of "it falls the fuck apart on the bottom" and I've been hunting for an underskirt, definitely. I have one, but it doesn't really fit the dress style, it takes away from the detail on the skirt that makes me like the damn thing so much.
I posted it in CoF ultimately looking for feedback though, so I really appreciate your response. I'm hoping later to make a coord with this dress that actually works.
No problem, glad to help! Which underskirt do you have now? There isn't any lace at the hem of the dress so I think a basic ruffle underskirt should look okay with it. I have one from Little Dipper on Taobao and it's excellent for shorter dresses like this one.
Hohoholy fucking shit a photo this women that isn't creepy as hell. She toned down the crazy makeup and smile and it makes her look so much better. Her coord could still use work but it's heading in a good direction I think
I have a chess story one that has 4 little layers of ruffles that alternate chiffon-lace-chiffon-lace. I feel like it adds too much detail/weight to the bottom of the dress, and it distracts from the embroidered overlay on the dress itself, which is my favorite part.
I hadn't thought to check Little Dipper, though- think they still have it up?
>it's fucking red guy
Honestly though, since in lolita "pink" usually means a pretty certain shade of pink, I think it's fine to call it blush or dusty pink. It is definitely a shade of pink though, I agree with you.
I think most people can't dress themselves for shit regularly in general honestly. Most people's fashion sense is not good and therefor translating that into lolita isn't gunna make people magically have taste.
This. A lot of gulls have admitted that they can't dress themselves in normalfag clothing, or that they had zero fashion sense before they started wearing lolita. For whatever reason, this fashion attracts people that can't dress themselves for shit, and that's really amplified when they try to make a lolita outfit.
Pretty good overall but the tights are distracting from the dress. I just feel they would go better with a plain dress instead of one so heavily patterned.
The blue 'water' doesn't really match any of the blues in her coord, and the brown of the vase looks really out of place. That's just my opinion tho, it's a cute idea.
It still looks stupid as hell without the context though.
Even within context it still just cheapens the whole look and makes it looks like a bad costume or a very cheap photoshoot.
"Never shall a lolita pick up anything that clashes with their coordinate and take a photo, especially if the object in question is cheap. Her hands must only touch objects of the finest quality, less she be banned from Lacemarket."
- The lolita law of acquisition #59
Before clicking the thumbnail my mind really liked this and that girl has a beautiful profile but the more I look at this the more it just looks cheaply put together to me. I wanna like it but.
So close. I would have loved this if the materials looked more luxurious
The tiny child size hand muff bear bothers me the most. It's ivory not white like everything else and holding a ... wand AND wearing gloves. One hand in muff, one holding an item. It is cluttered and would look better if simplified.
I didn't mean it like you must spend plenty of money on your accessories, I meant it in the don't cut important corners to save money way. You can be frugal without being cheap, if that makes sense, and I find the crown cheap. Like it's made out of glitter glue and child's craft foam cheap.
I just dislike this overall.
I think she looks really awkward, her dress is too short, her pose looks really ridged and forced, the tiny toy muff, cheap cluttering acessories/props and that close up picture creeps me out.
She is pretty though, I would love to see her in classic. I think she would suit that style so much better.
I KNEW there must be some crossovers between Neopets and lolita!! The customization really reminds me of coording. If you wear a full pack then you are "boring" just like wearing a full lolita set. Themed outfits rather than simply color matching, nicer Neocash "burando" stuff than Neopoint "Bodyline quality" :p
I was at that tea party and it looked much better irl than it came out on the photos.
Most of us were checking her out (specifically for her legs, but she's in general very pretty from what I remember) and felt like pedophiles when we learned she was underage lol and were confused why she was wearing a winter-themes coord in summer
I agree it's mostly >>8734624 that people can't dress themselves. I also I think our standards can be too high here, but it's mostly the former.
Same, holy glamor shot. I don't mind the coord overall but something about how she styled herself just looks really out of place? Like a pageant girl in lolita.
I wouldn't call it offensive in itself, no, but I would call it tacky because of the lack of context/reason to be doing so.
If you can't see the context and reason behind a Russian rifle in a Russian soldier coord, then you might be a little dense. Not saying it looks good, but it's not like it doesn't make any sense.
This. And if it's 'aside from the dress'... isn't that sort of the main piece that should work? I don't know, I mean I guess accessorizing is equally important to the main piece when going for a theme but I feel like there's so many military dresses out there that it really should work for the theme if you're going to push it so far in a controversial manner. Like all or nothing.
Did anyone catch the post before it was deleted?
I don't necessarily agree, people make themed coords all the time with dresses you wouldn't expect. If it had some sort of clashing print that didn't make any sense, then I'd say it was a total failure, but pieces without prints can be made to look like whatever, it's all about what's around it.
It was a "ciel" look. No makeup, hiding half of the face and shitty photos with no no real outfit.
saw this in CoF the other day but it got removed because there was several photos on the same post. managed to save the pics first but totally forgot to get caps
Can someone please stop this girl? All she says is "cute" is she retarded or does she have a vocabulary of a 3 year old?
