>>8727134 That is my planned career path actually. I'm still in university, I'm studying Fashion Design at the top design school in my country. I decided to study fashion over actual costume because I felt like it would give me more options in industry and more transferable skills. I have friends who study costume, and while their course looks fun creating beautiful and elegant ballgowns and such, they seem to cut a few corners, in drafting, construction and other areas.
>>8727194 I'm actually in my final year at the top Theatre school in my country! I specialize in Lighting Design and Costume Construction. Having studied fashion design as well, I think the main difference is not so much 'cutting corners' - I don't think we do at all to be fair - but more the construction aspect. A fashion designer creates a piece of art that while intricate and very precise in it's construction, and does not have to withstand a week, or month, or longer, worth of run time. There are...

Can we discuss dodgy SS and webshops? Having trouble with one of them and want to share your concerns and stories? Were you scammed or are you still waiting for your goods after many months of waiting? What SS and webshops should we avoid?
Here is my story. I bought something from an SS on facebook named Loli Loli Paradise, they also have another SS account named Ieong Kam Seng. This is a Taobao SS. My transaction took place in May, it was a pre-order for an OP (not a print replica, fyi) and matching headdress. At some point I sent them a pm which... Comment too long.

>>8732536 You kinda fucked up there yourself. You forced them to send you something which they did and they cant make the stores work faster. They need to communicate better for sure if people are unsure about what is happening but with taobao waiting months is the norm.
>>8732539 Yeah I know fucked up a bit, but if I didn't file the claim I probably still wouldn't have had my dress? Waited as long as I could with my claim to give them time but at some point you just have to you know? I sent them so many messages politely asking for an update, which they all ignored, they only started replying when I filed the claim which says everything really. Their biggest issue is definitely communication. I know it's hard to keep in touch with all buyers but if there's a big... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.

>>8726458 Bangs. You definitely need bangs. I know someone is gonna come in here and yell at me in about five minutes for saying this but uncovered foreheads rarely look good, especially if you have a big one. Get some clip in bangs from the local beauty shop, I think even chains like Sally's carries them. Bangs add cuteness and youthfulness
>>8732217 No but I did pay a shopping service to buy me stuff at Design Festa. I would love to know what you bought. I hope that someday I can go to Japan and shop at Design Festa myself, it's so not fair to see all of the cute pictures of designers' merchandise on their Twitters and then just cross my fingers that the shopping service will do the best they can. I'm sure if I went there in person I'd buy about 100 more things.
Design Festa is sensory overload. I definitely recommend going, but only if you can dedicate the whole weekend to it and you have a lot of spare cash.
I ended up buying a ton of postcards and prints this time around, but I did get some cute accessories and stuff. I usually hate perler bead things but these I thought were pretty cute for a pastel coord I've been putting together.
