Salty you weren't asked to join? All these photos were submitted by each lolita themselves. A Japanese lolita sought out international lolitas though online comms and asked them if they would like to participate in the book, over a year ago. Get your facts straight.
>>8811181 Kind of embarrassed since half of the coords on the front cover aren't very good. Or at the least, eye-catching as cover photos should be. Kind of makes it look like some lolitas asked to be added on haha.
What's something, or multiple things, you would have liked someone to tell you as you were first getting into conventions, cosplay, jfash, etc?
Keep it as board-relevant as possible, but life advice that applies to the hobbies counts as well.

I'm a commissioner. Anyone in a craft trade knows how fussy and, sometimes, how utterly unrealistic and entitled, the cosplay customer base can be. We've all had them, and we work ourselves rugged to please them, and they are determined to make life hard for us.
Currently, I'm not aware of any network or community set up on Facebook or any other social platform for commissioners to get together and name and shame bad customers.
Does naming and shaming go against customer privacy? It is unprofessional to share the names and crimes of the difficult... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.

Anyway, i remember an old story like 7 years ago about a girl wearing a terribad gothic lolita milanoo-tier thing with a cheap ass wig and dirty sneakers who tried to seduce a Sephiroth cosplayer and got him outside,in a corner where nobody was (she told she "really needed to tell him something" and he thought if he did he would finally get rid of her...big mistake) and she...

I don't lurk here very often, but I just wanted to know if there's like a "too soon" kind of unspoken rule about cosplay. Would it be rude to Cosplay as Snape at any upcoming events, as an homage to his passing?
>>8812761 My personal opinion is that cosplaying the character is fine, since you're cosplaying the fictional person and not the actor who played him in a movie. Cosplaying the actor or making note of his death is not fine. So Snape is good, but Snape in a halo is bad.
I've been on a knitting kick lately and would really like to see what other people have made! Has anyone knitted or crocheted pieces for cosplay, or do you make your own lolita accessories? Cute patterns and inspiration pics would be appreciated!
What are some really amazing panels you've seen that you wish went to more cons.
I for one am a huge fan of Banzai arcade. While the whole thing is made with RPG maker but a lot of TLC was put into the sprite creation. In addition all cutscenes are voiced not to mention the crowd gets really hype. It's a treat to both watch and partisipate.
One convention I went to had a panel on disabilities and special needs in anime. I really wanted to go, because I am a special education teacher and it sounded interesting. But it was cancelled. I was thinking of making my own panel with indepth information on this topic, but I feel that I would be overreaching and no one would care anyway.
Can you all tell me stories from when you first started wearing lolita? What mistakes did you make? How did you learn to improve your coords? Could you handle being patient waiting for items to show up to see if they'd match? What was it like to change your wardrobe if you did?
I mostly want to hear from people who have been doing this for awhile and what it was like to start out and how you feel about it now. I'm a huge newbie myself and I only started buying stuff last year. I'm curious as to what the progression is like and what I should and... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Trying to use normalfag skirts for lolita, using mediocre handmade items such as bags/headpieces in coords, wearing way too heavy of eye make up, buying from milanoo and bodyline.
>How did you learn to improve your coords?
I learned that when you buy items you need to have an idea of what they will match with in your wardrobe. For example, if you have a lot of brown/wine/navy in your wardrobe, don't buy pastel pink... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
My biggest mistake was wearing replicas and supporting replica makers. While I regret it in that respect, it helped me to appreciate the quality and design that goes into original garments. Back then, I really honestly believed that because I was larger, I had literally no options other than replicas. The amount of options and viewpoints have changed since then. So I feel better for more fatty-chans getting into the fashion.
Other mistakes was buying everything I liked because the price was right, or it... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>8808426 >What was it like to change your wardrobe if you did? I went from buying everything I kinda liked that would fit and it grew into having a lot of main pieces with few options to coordinate with them. I had a lot of dresses I couldn't do much with. I sold a lot, kept my absolute favorites, invested money in blouses, accessories, legwear, shoes, etc. When I had the money saved up, I started buying high priority items off my wishlist.
Now my wardrobe is at a point where even... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
