Let's start a thread for indecisive people like me. Post something you want to buy or do but are unsure to. Anons will help. I begin. I never got into lolita even though i know it since 2006. Parents were assholes. A friend of mine sells this dress for 50$. I love old school style dresses in black and white but...i am just not sure. Should i take it anons?
>>8743139 I'm willing to bet a lot of cons turned this down because of the sheer cost involved for the "privilege" of hosting. I still wish someone in the USA would start a different cosplay competition that wasn't run like a shitshow.
Pretty chill. We still had our lolcows, but I found a lot of feats in cosplay more amazing because of the lack of wide-spread materials. There weren't 5 million colors of wigs and worbla readily available. Katie bear tutorials and sharpie dying were like witchcraft.
I also found cons less autstic (granted, I'm a bit aged out now, but if kids are having fun that's good). It was much less competative cosplay-wise, in the fact that you were just excited to see someone cosplaying from whatever series, it didn't really matter if they were missing a wig...

Pretty amazing, ngl. This might just be the nostalgia talking, but in ye olde day cons were a magical oasis that you pilgrimage to once or twice a year. The conventions themselves were shittier with garbage programming and guests unless you were at one of the huge ones like Otakon, but in the late 90s and early 2000s it was much harder to come by anime merch and videos unless you were in a dealer's room. So it was something to get excited about. It was also harder to meet other weebs and cosplayers in the wild since this stuff wasn't mainstream yet. Most anime cons... Comment too long.

I know there's a new actual handmade thread, but u didn't think this was the right place for it.
So I've been thinking about immersing myself more into Lolita, but I've heard from a few people in local community that you are basically outcasted if you make your stuff as opposed to buying brand. I just love the fashion and style and want to be part of the community but I don't have $500 to drop on a coord.
So opinions? I'd like to know your feelings on handmade?
> basically outcasted if you make your stuff as opposed to buying brand
I'm really curious about why this is such a common misconception. Everyone who asks about this is told that handmade stuff is only ridiculed by the snobbiest of snobs as long as it's good quality, and in my experience, that is completely true.
I honestly wish I knew how to sew. I have a lot of very cute ideas for dresses and would love to wear them but I suck at physically making them. If your ideas are good no one will mind handmade. If they're good enough I'm sure they'll even make other people jelly since no one else can have them.
I'm kind of tempted to get a Crimson or Navy Thunder suit, but i'm really sceptical of the quality and timeframe they give you.
I think Aniki is the most popular one but i've heard some really dodgy stuff he does, and people are waiting 6+ months for an order.
I talked to JTOKUCOSTUME and they've been quick and upfront with my questions, but they don't have any pictures of the finished product (no prior commissions I guess?) I want so i'm unsure how it would turn out.

What are some tips for someone looking to start a Lolita community? My area has no comm, despite a large number of lolitas, so I decided to make one. What ways can I prevent ita shit from plaguing it? What do you guys think of making a comm 18+ and having a dress code? The dress code won't be strict at all, just essentially saying that you can't dress ita as fuck to meets. I'm also looking for advice or stories related to >social hierarchy >banning people >meet ideas Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>8758340 The people who are ita will not know they are ita, honey.
And who gets to tell them, and when, hmm? Are you going to do it, OP? When they just arrived at the meet after spending perhaps two hours driving or sitting in transit, wearing $100+ of Milanope and that's the most they've spent on an outfit their entire life?
"Honey, I'm sorry, that looks like you bought it from Milanope, you can't hang out with us today"
She will inevitably be heartbroken and interpret you as bullies.
