I wanted to go to AX really badly, but I didn't want to go without dressing up in some way, so I let my other hobby bleed into this one a bit and I just wore my gucci Crye stuff and a bunch of /k/ related patches.
>>9087881 >Do you have fond memories to think back to? I think you'd regret not doing it more than doing it. The hollowness of dreaming of what might have been hurts more than the bitterness of what came and went. Word. It's hard to help, though.
I really want to get back into cosplay but money is tight right now and I'm currently looking to get a new job so I'm not sure where I'll be living so it's hard to plan for cons. I'm so motivated right now but can't do anything about it! Maybe il start planning things out and sketching etc
>mfw people try to say the name Lolita has nothing to do with the book
Okay, so I've been in this fashion for nearly 10 years and have done hours upon hours worth of research into this topic and have found nothing concrete explaining why it's called Lolita. Everyone has been saying it has nothing to do with the book since the dawn of time, but there doesn't seem to be any real evidence supporting this claim. There's several different theories about how the name has come up, but none have any proof, just some random person... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>Hours worth of research Did you even try googling "lolita" in Japanese? One of the first results is the Wikipedia about the fashion, with a section titled "Origin of the Name". >https://ja.wikipedia.org/wiki/%E3%83%AD%E3%83%AA%E3%83%BC%E3%82%BF%E3%83%BB%E3%83%95%E3%82%A1%E3%83%83%E3%82%B7%E3%83%A7%E3%83%B3#.E5.90.8D.E7.A7.B0.E3.81.AE.E6.84.8F.E5.91.B3 A translation on LiveJournal: >http://egl.livejournal.com/18952560.html There you go, anon.
>>9081289 I think the reason lolita is called lolita is because the fashion was an effort to counteract women being sexualaized so maybe it was an effort for young girls to take back the word from its pedophilia context?? idk just my therory based on things ive read
maid cafes usually choose their volunteers based on one of these three ways.
>1. the maids know someone you can tell if a maid cafe is like this because usually the girls are well… not that cute or well put together. >2. the maids are hired based on someone’s personal preference for girls. you can tell if a maid cafe is like this because all the girls will have similar features, like brown hair with blue eyes, or all Asian girls.

What's the best way to get the word out about cosplay photoshoots? I hosted one last year and despite having it listed in the cosplay.com forum's schedule, and posting about it here and there weeks beforehand, I think the only people that came (maybe 10 total) were ones I spotted around the convention and gave them info about it.
Is there a better more universal way to advertise?
>>9034505 Facebook has never steered me wrong. Make a FB event for the gathering and spread it over various Otakon FB pages. Also make a post on Instagram and Tumblr, and tell people to spread the word around. Though I also have great luck just telling people word-of-mouth around the con, having the social media presence does help a LOT.
This thread is for ouji and aristocrat (aka "boystyle") discussion. Boystyle refers to the masculine counterparts of lolita and aristocrat fashions. There is a lot of overlap between these styles, and different people use different terms to describe them. So, consider this a thread for those whose style is on the right half of Buttcape's Lolita Family Triangle: http://www.kawacura.com/moripress/wp-content/uploads/2015/06/0dmmLH6-350x350.jpg
