>>8981556 I'm excited because this will be the first year that I will be wearing brand! I'm a lonelita, so I'll probably just eat some sweets and watch Kamikaze Girls. Or maybe I'll go antiquing; I did that last year and it was fun!
>>8981556 No idea if my comm has anything planned yet. It doesn't look like it, so hopefully we can get something thrown together ASAP. Summer meets are hard--it's very hot here for most of the year. Sweating in brand is not fun.
The old one is gone so share the tales of your lolita/cosplay/weeb family, friends, coworkers, etc. Also share any stories of yourself being the embarrassing one or families embarrassing you over your hobbies!

>>9004691 I haven't been to enough cons to awnser that, but in my opinon the most important aspect is the people. it's a social event's so the kind of people there make it.
if your really planning on it your gonna have to get a bunch of people and raise money, even if its a small event at first, i think if its very community based, and the type of people running it, are kind and very open and welcoming, it can become a great con.
>>9004736 No the people running it have to be competent at running an event. OP's picture if fro the infamous failure of Dashcon, run by Tumblr, that prides themselves on being "open, kind and welcoming" but that doesn't cover the cost for actually renting out the space and paying your guests.
>>9000104 I'm going to turn 20 soon and i'm so "scared"? I don't feel ready. I know we all get old it's impossible to avoid, we all get wrinkles and all that stuff one day. But i'm scared i won't feel "kawaii" anymore, (i'm not into supah ott pastel vomit, i used to be into that "kawaii loli aidoru" shit at 14 then moved onto "kawaii living dorru",..now i'm into lolita, and a bit more sane, i have a bit of 2010 sweet prints and a bit of old...

>>9000229 I know the feel, anon. I'm 25, don't feel like it at all and absolutely dread growing old. But if it's any consolation, regarding your fashion choices: Your age shouldn't get in the way of you having fun. 20 is actually a relatively average (if not below average) age for lolita so while I understand how you feel I do want to reassure you that you're definitely not too old for it.
So, I just purchased a BTSSB item that has some significant staining. I got it pretty cheaply, so my plan is to first try to remove the stains. If I am unsuccessful, I was going to try tea-dying it (the stains are a tea-ish color). I wouldn't wear it as is, and I can't see anyone else wanting to either.
My question is, what are your thoughts on making alterations to lolita brand items, whether it be tailoring, repairs, dying, etc? Is it ever okay? It is okay when the item is already damaged?
Spring is fadding away in the northern hemisphere. How do you say cool in 100+ weather and still stay lolita? And for you southern hemisphere folks, I'm sure you're excited to finally break out your long sleeve blouses and coats again!
I want to start making something out of worbla. I thought you just made the thing out of worbla and you're done (plus sanding and painting etc. ofcourse) but now I keep seeing people using two layers of worbla with foam between, which would triple the costs. Is this really necessary? Or only with some parts? Could someone please explain?
>>8993731 It depends on what you're making and if you're willing to line the back with something else or not.
I usually use the double method for things that you more likely or not will see the back of, like belts, and other things that "stick off" of the body.
You can just fold over the edges (think of how people who sew cut slits into fabric to make harsh shapes easier) for things like armor for the most part though. Line the inside with something black (usually) like foam, or a comfortable fabric. People double up their worbla to make the piece look "finished", but you can do the same with lining. The only downside would be it might be harder for you to attach straps, so make sure the fold over covers wherever straps would go, if you're making something that requires them.
An Anon was asking in a previous thread about waterproof body paint for pic related. I said I ordered a black "henna" marker (not actually henna, but FDA approved alcohol based body paint as an alternative to toxic coloured henna) and was waiting for it to arrive to try it.
I just got it in the mail. It works perfectly. It's a tiny bit drippy (nothing too bad, it collects slowly) and the ink does get on the inside of the cap so I recommend wearing gloves when using it and making sure it doesn't drip on anything, but it's very dark and stays on...
