get hype. new anime confirmed for 2016
The good, the bad, the ugly. Why do you think some works and some doesn't? Discuss.
Lets not derail into, "Muh cultural appropriation!!11" please.
Post your favourite Christmas/winter lolita outfits!
We did one of these a while ago and I liked it.
Pic related: Please stop being shocked that my products have a price
Going to be the first to say no matter how many times it happens I will never get used to people asking me for a custom, going through the whole commission process with me (price quotes included), and then backing out right as I ask for payment. If you don't have money set aside stop wasting both of our time. And teenagers who want to commission me, don't let on that they're underage, and then tell me something like "sorry, my parents said no so I can't anymore but maybe for my birthday " after a lot of back and forth.
I don't officially start a project without it. But it's still aggravating to go back and forth working out details (size, materials, price, etc) for a commission that leads to nothing.
Tell me about your lolita friendships. Like, the ones you're close enough to to hang out with other than just at community meets.
>how did you meet?
>what are your substyles?
>how big of a role does lolita play in your friendship?
>do you ever do "lolita" things like have tea parties, go to cons, or shop at lolita stores together?
>do you ever twin? If so, what's your favorite dress to do it in?

It's pretty amazing. Especially watching it now because the bad old school coords are more of a novelty. Some of them are really cute, though. I watched that movie for the first time in like eight years a few months ago and actually liked it more than when I first saw it at 15.
Is there a way to make yourself look nice, even though you're overweight and chubby?
Like this dude. The costume seems fine, but the way he looks and the way he is photographed make everything look like shit.
Is there a way to avoid looking like a pear shaped piece of mozarella?
Slightly warm lighting so you don't look pale and sick
better posture, That guy should roll his shoulders back and lift his head head up, instead he just threw his neck back.
Get the photographer to stand back and zoom in. this will slim the face and make you look taller (mirrors give a similar effect, if you've ever wondered why you look better in the mirror than in photos that's why)
So how's the event going so far? I'm not in Madrid these days...is there any trouble with queues and stuff?
Post lolita and other jfash pics that tell a story, pics that make you imagine more is going on than just a pose or a photoshoot.
as well as artistically odd shots
Anyone have any good safety tips for congoing? Aside from "don't dress like a whore" I mean. Something more practical and less obvious.
Upon entering a convention, take your time to look at a map with your friends to designate a meet up spot. Commit to a time to meet up, and be there. This is especially important if you're like me, and your phone dies in the blink of an eye. Make sure you keep your bag to the front, pickpockets do exist at cons. Try to bring an additional safety pin for your badge so you can reinforce it on your clothes. Some places only give you a bullshit clip that does NOTHING if someone rams into you.
Hope that helps! Use condoms!
How does /cgl/ feel about full-on costumes like pic related?
Aww she's cute but oh lord honey that hair.
She needs to learn how to flat iron properly its a frizzy mess. And so are her pigtails I wanna give her some coconut oil or something, sweety define them curls! Or flat iron all of it. This is just weird and awkward. I just feel bad, like no one tought her how to deal with her black hair, where is her mother?
How does cgl feel about buying likes? Who are some cosplayers who obviously buy likes? Have you ever bought them yourself? What was the outcome?
I've been tempted to buy ad space for my cosplay page because I'm finding it to be a pain in the ass to get people to actually notice and appreciate your work unless you do titties 24/7; social media algorithms can be a real dick about what people see.
I don't do a lot of revealing costumes but I work in the arts and want to beef up my portfolio a bit for hopefully teaching workshops at cons.
I've met a lot of people whom are pretty low key and friendly irl but looking at their pages it's pretty apparent they buy likes. I guess its ok if...

New feels thread? last one seems to be auto sage. >>
>that feel when you sew an entire hem inside out by accident
I've been sitting here with this seam ripper for an hour.
can you at least pretend to keep the thread on topic, bait-anons?
>Dicking around on Y!Auctions, looking for a piece that I know is never going to show up.
>Stumble upon one of my dream items that I had given up on long ago
>In preferred colorway
>In good condition
>For less than $100
>Win that shit, thanks FJ
I'm over the moon for sure, but I can't help but feel anxious. Something has to be wrong, I can't be that lucky, right?
Working on Musashi right now and I need some boat girl inspo.
Anyway, dumping my small collection.
Though I must say, looking at the in-game CG or something should help quite a bit.
3 sushi images.
First two look decent, last one kinda sucks.
FEstasia is near us, Iberanime announced Blasted Mechanism.
What are your opinions so far?
It's clever and cool of them to support local artists, it's cheaper to fly them from Brazil or Japan anyway. I just don't know how much Blasted Mechanism means for the average anime fan.
