My friends have called me hipster jokingly in the past but I just got into lolita and now all my hobbies really do come off as special snowflake faggotry...

This doesn't sound too cringe-worthy. These "i smoke n swear n drink in lolita" types are way worse.

I don't think it's the hobbies themselves that make people cringe, it is the air of how speshul it is to do such speshul things 'whilst befrilled'

I always think these types belong in a pirate coord at a Rennfaire. It's embarrassing to be around these types out in public, I avoid them so I'm glad they boast about it so I know in advance.

What's the deal with ACP events at conventions? I just went to AX and it seemed like every single person I knew was working for them wearing a costume for various booths. Is it paid? Is it cool? How do you get a job with them? Is there a union or something?

>>9093893
ACP is the main agency and point of contact between industry and volunteers for those who wish to volunteer and work officially at industry booths at cons.
>is it paid?
No. You get a free badge. Hotel MAY be provided, but usually it's by the industry company.
>How do you get a job with them?
Volunteer positions are usually posted 1-3 months ahead of the con on ACP's website, under Events. You make an account on ACP, apply for the said...

As stated, badge, and sometimes goodies/free merch/access to guests (depends on booth). Generally you will work every day of the con in some capacity but figure half a day each. You get a free badge, sometimes an exhibitor badge (depends on booth), which is worth its weight in gold if you aren't one of the groups who gets early entry to the hall and you are trying to buy stuff. You may have competition depending on the popularity of the costumes/character you are applying to. If you want a more or less guaranteed...

Okay, so I have a problem I can't seem to find a solution to. As of right now, I don't wear Lolita very often, maybe once a month, so my clothes don't get a lot of wear. I'm also very mindful to keep my clothes clean and don't wear them anywhere that may end up getting them dirty or smelly (around smokers, or at restaurants). I always wear bloomers and a blouse, so my skirts and JSKs can be worn a couple times before I wash them since they don't touch my skin.

I washed two of my skirts, and everything was fine until they started to dry, when...

costs.jpg
14 KB,
It's obvious that the costs to attend cons have gone up over the years with admissions, hotels and travel costs, major cons are no longer relatively cheap to go to anymore. If the con is close by to you, then you are one of the lucky ones that get to save some money.

Last year at dragoncon I spent damn near $2000 and a damn good chunk of that went to hotel and travel costs.

~$500 for AWA coming up soon, though, i'm an artist, so I actually make money going to cons, so, meh.
>>
If it's in driving distance...
>$20 a day for food
>$30-50 depending on badge
>$50 for merch (more or less if i see anything I like)
>$20 per 200 miles of driving for gas
>$50 per night of hotel (I normally room with people/go with friends)

Going to one this weekend, for Sat/Sun together I'm looking at spending about $140. It's a smaller con but I'm paying for a room as well.
>>
Too fucking much. When I think of how much money I've spent planning for cons, I honestly consider not cosplaying anymore. I can still pay my bills/have a decent savings but it's not a small amount of money

the only thing Lolita about this is the dress, otherwise it's fairy kei or some other nonsense.

We had a good discussion in the last thread, lets keep it going. For all those ladies who have a SO, what has been your gf's reaction to lolita fashion?

I was really happy to see how many other healthy relationships the other gulls have!

My boyfriend doesn't understand why I'm interested in lolita fashion and doesn't like how much the pieces sell for. He's into other expensive hobbies like motorbikes and cars though so I'm confused why he can't connect the dots. I still wear it on weekends regardless of what he thinks of it.
>>
my bf is actually super supportive of my love of lolita and is wanting to get an ouji coord to wear with me!

he's super into warhammer and videogames, so he gets that some fun hobbies are just pricey, so now he wants his own outfit because ega reminds him of Bloodborne

New thread since the old one is saging

let's start off with this girl. Seems to think that she is good enough to be efamous and rants that she's not invited to cons

This thread is bait for sure but just so everyone knows don't book with Dave Yang. He only edits your photos if you're his friend. I got mine back completely untouched after about 3 months of waiting. I guess he forgot about them. Not that I really care about skin smoothing, special effects, etc but it was part of his $175 package.

Hey guys I hav a con coming up and my gf and I want to wear Team Instinct armbands from Pokemon Go to show our affiliation, but honestly I've got no idea how to go about it and I thought you guys would have the best knowledge about this kind of thing. Should I make a patch or a decal or just paint it on??

I'd commission someone to embroider the design onto the armbands for you, make sure to find a decent sized image of the stencil.

It looks like a couple of different events scattered through the city. Bands, shows, dances. They're hosted by the con so cosplaying shouldn't be an issue.

Has anyone tried out the new lockshop wigs yet? I've owned a lot of theirs over the last few years and those new ones look like shit. the manufacturers changed or something. any reviews? specifically the new mermaid wigs?

I may be moving to dreamholic now but theirs look really messy all the time. I need a new Lolita wig and I feel lost. haha
>>
>>9091919
My friend got a newer Lockshop wig as part of a wig grab bag from Lolita Collective. Not sure what style it was, but it was shiny like a costume wig and the wefts fell apart just from taking it out of the bag. By the time we got it packaged back up to exchange it already had a bald spot on the cap just from light handling. Luckily she got an older model wig that isn't falling apart in our hands. Can't say that this will happen with all the new wigs, but proceed cautiously.

Oh man I was just looking through this issue with my new beau last night. He wanted me to show him sailor lolita and the men's counterpart to lolita. It feels nice to have found someone who really digs you and thinks youre cute in lolita, but like not in a creepy way or anything.
