There are some old brands that are related to the origins of Lolita, but do not mainly produce Lolita clothing, nor really market themselves as Lolita brands (Milk, Jane Marple, Emily Temple Cute). Even so, Japanese normies think of these brands as Lolita, and Lolitas have worn their clothing since forever.
Now there are some newer brands that borrow from Lolita fashion, but are also not really Lolita (Honey Bunch, Amavel, Rosemarie Seoir... There are a lot). These brands are used for several different styles too, but generally they fall under the label girly fashion, which is as broad a term as it sounds (it's also used for normie fashion). Misako and RinRin have both talked about labels for what could be a new style of ''not really Lolita but has Lolita elements/Lolita inspired/has the same feeling or spirit as Lolita''. Though mentioned in magazines a couple of times, they are not really defined or popular. These are soft Lolita and neo Lolita. Then there's otome kei, which appears to be a term that's only used in the West nowadays. When I asked my SS about otome kei, she first thought I was talking about otome games, then she simply said it was girly fashion. Tldr what are your thoughts on soft Lolita, neo Lolita and girly fashion?
I agree. It's getting easier to find LG on the second hand market at least.
I have a mighty need for this dress.
>>9443382 >I just want something to call my daily lolita-inspired fashion so I can easily find inspiration and people to follow on insta
same, I can't decide between girly fashion and otona alice tough
I don't think tank tops count as lolita.
that's literally what it says tough, perhaps not the tank top specifically
Creative weird shit in the general EGL fashion family (lolita, aristocrat, ouji, otome, etc.). Especially Alice Deco/Nana Kitade type coords.
Bonus points for boystyle, because the guys on this board are basic as fuck and keep complaining about it.
I love this. I need so much more h.naoto frill and generally punky lolita in my life.
I love sack dresses, follow your heart anon
For me, the lace on this looks too cheap, the bra bodice is too normie/trendy, and the side bangs she has look unbrushed, like a just woke up stoner chick. There just seems to be a lack of thought/taste in styling details in these coords for me. I enjoy the idea of them, but the execution is not there yet. Ero requires a lot of finesse and understanding of style and nuance and pieces that go together juuust right. And ero is also hard because busters/corsets and other ero elements are so commonly seen in cheaper "cosplay" lolita outfits that if they don't look just right, they end up reminding people of that.
So who is she? I'm in love with her style.
I'm not looking to out her. She does post on CoF frequently though.
I mean. You're pretty good at writing. But subjective nonetheless. Missing the point of the thread again. I'm stating this because of what the theme of the thread is. Take your well thought critique elsewhere since she's not even here to see it. Some of us clearly enjoy her style.
> found out about a superdark black called Black 2.0 > imagine a grim reaper costume with that color > whoa, and standing on a gyroboard so it would look as if you were floating instead of walking! > wondering now if there have been some awesome "floating" cosplays/costumes, be it rollerblades, gyroboard, whatever
Please share similar cosplays/costumes with that idea, I only remembered this Alladin-thing here, thanks in advance!
Green/Hobgoblin used hoverboards at wondercon this year. You can also look up Goku with Nimbus (skateboard) or Silversurfer with a longboard.
Op here, that is so cool!
The girl in the upper right with the stank face is making me lose my shit.
oh damn. I saw those two goblins at wondercon but didnt get a picture while they were on their boards.
Holy hell, what happened to Cure World Cosplay's search in the last few days? It's as bad as
I searched Persona 5 and got some random series that happened to have a 5 in it. This is unacceptable.
Try Yuki+Nagato instead?
It works, but the change is still pretty obnoxious.
Ugh fuck. Did they go boolean on us?
I know there's a thread for "pipe dream cosplays" but what about cosplays you hope to one day make once you reach the skill level?
Pic related. I normally cosplay fabric heavy characters, armour seems tough to break into...
These 4 are ones I've wanted to do since I very first saw them, so one day I hope to have all of them completed. Two left are a matter of losing some weight and toning up (skinnyfat sadness), and right two are just a matter of funds as I'm saving for other life plans at the moment.
Ultimate dream is to perform Ikenai Borderline or Hametsu no Junjou in the top left outfit...one day!
Every animalistic anthropomorphic character with really high and sleek digigrade legs... I wish I had those awesome demon legs, avian legs or whatever other type.
I know there's alternatives, like high platform heels with no heels, but it doesnt look the same
The platform heels method usually does look kinda unimpressive, but there's also stilts.
Those are more involved.
She made Draenei legs by extending heels and it turned out really well imo.
Thank you, other Anon. Same to you.
Both techniques I saw before when looking for methods, and the first is a little too mechanical skill required but definitely a todo for the future
Same, I love her and that dress so much.
I have her casual outfit on my to-do list, so that's a start. Good luck, anon!
>boring coords >the type OTT lolita's call casual lolita >natural hair > no armwear, legwear or headwear >nothing crazy or attention-grabbing >"I just threw this on quickly" >full sets Do you love them or hate them?
okay done dumping
I know that this is meant to be very basic lolita but the dress looks like a cheap sundress on her. It's a sad sight
>>9443575 >>9443588 >>9443597
Come on, these are very traditional classic coords. They are not OTT but I wouldn't call them basic either.
Does anyone know what dress this is?
Still one of my favorites
I really admire the way this girl wears the fashion
Never been to this one before. Any anone know what it's like? I know it's a fairly small con
Wait, what happened to A&G con, wasn't it a spring con?
Spring cons are always garbage save Animarathon.
Wow. A&G and Shumatsucon are both dead in the same year, next you'll see Kabochacon go under, how they had a second year is beyond me.
OP here. Man this con was fun. I can't believe this was the last one :(
Now there's no more spring ohio cons. I'm not going to entertain the idea of going to a kopfcon.
Animarathon is going to be a two day con next year so that might be worth it.
A-Kon is coming up fast. Cosplay crunch time is here and the con is in a new location this year
I told myself this year that I'd get started on my cosplays early. Why do I keep torturing myself like this.
How is everyone else's cosplays coming along? What is everyone's cosplans?
We have a Texas thread. It's a little early for A-Kon specific threads, isn't it?
Is anyone else taking their cosplaying self on the TRE? I really hope there are no normies. Maybe I'll just Japan it up and bring a small suitcase and change at the venue.
Has anyone been to Gojotekicon? How would you rate it? I'm thinking about checking it out this year but I'd like to know if it's worth it.
I think this is Gojoteki's first year. They have some cool people who are putting the show on who have some great ideas, but being held in Ashland is going to hold them back. Plus, time wise they're right in between like three other Ohio cons that are already established.
They talked about a drunk coloring panel when I saw them at Tekko, so I might check it out for a night at least.
>>9435339 >I saw them at Tekko
It's their first year? What else did they talk about at Tekko?
The key highlights I remember from the conversation were:
A bunch of guests
Two vendor's halls/artist alley
And they tried to work out a discount deal for attendees at grandpa's cheesebarn but they said no. Lol
Yoi is tiny asf but the people who run it also do some real big ones so im hopeful itll get bigger/better
shumatsu is RIP tho
If shumatsu is kill, then maybe it'd be worth checking out. All cons start small, maybe this one will grow if they get great panels + guests.
