I would like to discuss about coords which are inspired by christianity. By surfing the internet I figured that some feel really offended by Lolitas using religious symbols and dresses which are inspired by nun habits. Personally I really love these coords and I'd like to get myself an outfit like this. But I too feel a bit strange about wearing a cross necklace, even though I find them really esthetic. I don't really now how to think about that style but in general I feel like there's no need to be offended over religious inspired... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I grew up Catholic (don't really consider myself Catholic anymore, more so agnostic but I do pray sometimes when I'm really anxious about a loved one). I love religious iconography in lolita, but sometimes it looks tacky (those skewer headdresses are horrid). The same rules apply to it as usual for the most part - try to keep the costumey levels to a minimum and if you really have to go all out, make sure it's good quality and well done, rather than cable ties or kebab skewers. My tastes lean towards old school, but you definitely want to channel a timeless Mana... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I want to join my comm, but everyone that's semi decently dressed are so cliquey that I can't budge in. I don't want to be stuck hanging out with newbs, so I've failed to join. Any ideas on breaking cliques?
Is that the reason she got more pictures taken? I've gone to several cons with a friend, and while she's beautiful, she's gotten more photos of her taken at certain cons because of the popularity of her cosplay, or because of how revealing her costume was. At those cons, it was kind of hard to watch photographers trip over themselves to take her picture, but I chose to focus on the meaningful interactions I had with people who were so excited about my character that day.
If at the end of the day, cosplay is a contest of who gets the most photos, you're... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Lately I had a discussion with a friend. She said that she'd like to see more real hair in lolita. I think that's a toughie! I almost never wear real hair in lolita anymore. I did it on the last meet up for the 1st time in years, making myself a kind of 20s hairstyle which my fellow lolitas seem to like, thankfully. My hair is on shoulder length. When it was long enough to go over my breasts I never wore my real hair for lolita. I think it only looks good in rather rare cases. Like if you really invest a few hours together with a friend to make... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
It seems to be a hotly contested issue among lolitas, but I honestly don't understand why. If some want to wear wigs, cool; if some want to wear their natural hair, cool. No one really cares that much as long as it looks good, and if it looks shit people only care as long as it is on an ita or nitpick thread.
I find the wig vs nat. hair about on par with: tights vs socks or cardigans vs blouse. It really isn't a big issue.
Although I'm starting to try and form an understanding of why people get so salty about it.
I do appreciate natural hair in lolita when it's done well, but I personally prefer wigs for myself just because I like having options, and I get bored with my natural hair a lot and cut/color fairly frequently.
But I do agree that if real hair seems kind of sad compared to a really nice coord, it kind of ruins the whole look for me.
Love it, especially sweet with real hair. It makes it so much more wearable, though i think wigs are fine too! I actually like a little bit of imperfection with natural hair, I couldnt care less if a girls curls fell out or the humidity made her hair frizzy, as long as its clean and they made SOME effort. It's a fashion not a contest and all that. I've just never tried one as I couldn't shove my hair& gargantuan head under a wig cap. I wear oldschool and classic, my hair (was) hip length and I always rag curled it or heat curled it. Though I can't even... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I started sharing coords online again recently, but I think it's made me want to stop. I ask for concrit, receive none, get posted here, and then don't even get anonymous concrit. I used to get hundreds of notes/likes on my coords, and I've improved since then, but now I'm getting next to nothing despite improving. I guess it just makes me feel sort of useless. People who throw together ita shit-tier coords get asspats and their hands held, and anyone who is actually trying and wants a little concrit is either ignored or gets shit on for matching two different...

I'm not going to shit all over you or call you rude if you give me concrit on CoF, tumblr, instagram, or on my personal Facebook page. I genuinely want it so I can improve. And I come here, and see like 13 replies of concrit or stuff like 'i hate these shoes'
>>8773627 It's such a pain. I'll admit that the likes/reblogs/notes are nice, but I've mostly started sharing again because I really like feedback and suggestions. I really don't mind someone being brutally honest. A lot of the best advice I've received was people being honest at risk of being blunt.

>i look down upon girls only wearing lolita at cons and meetups they just aren't lolita to me. Same with girls with like three bodyline outfits in their wardrobe claiming to be lolita
I wear lolita nearly everyday. I am not saying everyone should dress lolita 24/h but nit just for cons and meetups. Also meetups are mainly to show off and it's like a contest to who has the most brand and who's the prettiest and shit. So i'm a lone lolita. I might sound like a speshul... Comment too long.

I guess you've never been to a meetup before but my comm is super tight knit and meetups for us are pretty much 'let's go do xyz thing together' Not everyone has the luxury of being able to wear lolita all the time. I go out when I can with my lolita friends and I don't think there's anything to look down on for that? Stop being so stuck up lmao.
>>8782792 Holy shit anon are you me? I mean, I'm not a rorita but only because just buying a few outfits to show off at rori events seems unnecessary. Unless I'd take the plunge and switch out my entire wardrobe and lifestyle it just seems the same as any other elaborate costume. Just not worth it.
>>8782797 I think OP is talking about people who have a few OTT coords at their disposal that they wear to conventions and other special events (I could be wrong though); if that's the case I can see where they're coming from. When people plan coords months in advance, buy a whole bunch of items that match individual dresses (so they have a few outfits rather than a complete wardrobe), and dress up only for special occasions, it makes the fashion seem more like a costume or fancy dress rather than an actual street...
