I like (and miss) the wristcuffs on ankles as sock toppers. I know some people criticised it, saying shit like "it'll stretch the elastic!" or "It looks childish!" (because of the resemblance to kiddie socks) but I think it adds a nice bit of texture to an area that's often really bland.
I still hate the sceptre thing though. For photoshoots, okay. To carry around at cons or tea parties? No. Knock that shit off.

Have some questions that need answering about a few certain things. Unsure of which threads to ask them.
1. What are the best cons I should save for next year? 2. Who is great to commission and who are the worst commissioners to watch out for?
3. I heard Texas should be avoided at all costs because the cosplay community is fucking nuts. Is this true?
4. At Colossalcon, there was talk about a fight between BlackstarLee and Artemis Moon about their relationship and that one cheated on the other. Is there any real claim to this or is it just someone poking... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Okay /cgl/, let's make up some Lolita-themed cards for CAH. The aim is to hopefully come up with enough supplement into a regular deck, or even create an entire new deck. I feel like I saw something similar online a while ago, but a lot has happened in the Lolita world in the last two years and there's definitely a lot that could work in a game of this.
My friend and I were brain storming whether to enter but all of our 'detailed' cosplay options have been done in the finals the past couple of years. Like there's nothing we're in to that has, I don't know how to describe it, other than level of difficulty of previous entrants.
And finding something to like or paying our hundreds of dollars just for a competition costume seems like a cop out.
Anyone else ever feel this way? Any cosplays you wish people would do?
>>8723096 I don't think your specific issue should be a problem, anon. Lots of costumes have been repeated over and over again for lots of different reasons. I know some teams prefer to choose costumes solely based on complexity or how well it fits a skit concept they have in mind, but honestly, as long as you don't copy a skit AND repeat a costume, you should definitely prioritize choosing costumes from a series you like.
But it is tiring to see the same five series in my country's finals (USA). Every... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
One of my friends is pissed at me because my outfit lineup for an upcoming con is all rare brand, so now she doesn't want to wear Lolita with me. It's really obnoxious because she actually has Cat's Tea Party and Puppet Circus, but refuses to ever wear them (neither have even been tried on despite having them both for over a year) on the grounds that they might get damaged. Now she's making nameless FB posts bitching about how easy it was for me to "replace" her as my con buddy. She's not being replaced, the other girl was always going to hang... Comment too long.

>>8722656 She's not worth your time if she's seriously worried that you're gonna ~outshine~ her with your outfits. These kind of people make me wonder if they're in lolita for the right reasons (to wear the fucking clothes) or if they are more interested in status and popularity.
Be frank with her and tell her she's being petty and selfish by trying to discourage you from wearing what you want. You have no business pandering to her with your outfits.
Make up a street style that you'd like to see, that is completely ridiculous, funny, etc.
eg. Cloud-kei >clothing tones from pure white to very dark grey >floaty/poofy dresses, puffy jackets, anything goes >as long as you look like a cloud. >rain motifs/splashes of blue or sunshine could work too.
I saw here once a collage on coord thread (or coord inspo, I don't quite remember) Of a French coord. It was so pretty, but I didn't save it. If someone post it, I would love you forever. Sorry for no contribution tho.
Let's discuss mainstream representation of cosplay and J-fash. The good, the bad, and the ugly.
To start, here's a terrible representation of what appears to be a sweet lolita outfit. This is in an exhibit on Japan's "kawaii" culture (already cringe even without this hideous coord) in the Japan pavilion at Epcot. This is literally the best Disney could do. And if you read the blurb, it's described as a "cosplay outfit".
I actually emailed Disney complaining about it and saying... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>8716325 I actually posted this mannequin in an ita thread a while ago and someone responded with "tfw I know who you are" even though I don't know anyone who goes on 4chan. Are you the person they mistook me for maybe?
