I drop nerdy dogwhistles to see if anyone reacts. For example, I say that I minored in Japanese and that I studied abroad in Japan (which is true), the only people that minor in Japanese and study abroad there are weebs, so just about anyone that's a weeb will go "oh, so you're a weeb?" just from that info. After that, I mention I'm into sewing (which sounds feminine but really doesn't have to be; if it's a dudebro, dress it up as you like to make custom streetwear). Sewing + being a weeb is a flag for being a cosplayer/interested in it.

Another common method is to bring up more normie examples and then drop progressively more and more "deeper" examples. If I like to game, I'm not going to come out and say that I like to play something niche, I'll start out with Call of Duty and then talk about niche-r and niche-r examples.

>> No.10686443

Honestly normie don't cares, and on the opposite are sometime curious about those kind of creative hobbies. Just don't be creepy or obsessed about it.
If anyone would make a fuss on a hobby, then it's not probably a good friend to start with. Most people don't really care

I'm wanting to do a genderbent cosplay of Coconut from Nekopara. I am having a hard time figuring out what the male fashion equivalent of pic related would be. I already made the cat ears, got the heterochromia contact prescription, and made the cat bell choker.

I could ditch the genderbent angle and do crossplay instead; but I'm not looking for that experience.

It actually kind of pisses me off that they are releasing a lookbook in celebration with models wearing (so-called) popular prints/series. It's as if they are directly saying "look at all this great stuff you can't buy anymore!"

AP hasn't run into any disasters so far though. There haven't been any major delays with the MTOs they've offered. If supply chain issues were actually bad enough, we wouldn't even be seeing a new release every week.

>> No.10690968

>There haven't been any major delays with the MTOs they've offered.

This is because the SC is already done and the others aren't prints. ie: the other fabrics are far less likely to be affected by the CCP mandated power cuts and the garments themselves are also now sewn in the Philippines, which is far less affected by the CCP's shit policies that have totally wrecked production speed. Covid hasn't helped, but the number one culprit here is the idiotic policies of the Chinese government in the last 4 months.

These things also tend to be retro-active. AP would have started securing materials for production shortly after announcing the MTO, since they took new stock photos, meaning they already had samples made and had selected suppliers for their materials. Moving forward, they will probably end up moving their fabric production out of china into one of the new developing fabric printing markets in Indonesia, the Phillipines or South Korea.

Well anons, what do you think? We're coming closer to the year of our Lord 2022 and Bodyline still honors the man who brought joy and misery upon the scene.

Yeah it's cheap and there are lolitas out there who will only buy cheap stuff since they're constantly complaining about how expensive the fashion is.

most of my pieces are moitie, so i get basic bodyline in gothic/kuro styles to wear out casually without worrying

>> No.10688145

I don't think it's just that, I've noticed it sells a lot faster than Taobao. When a store shuts down there is usually an increase in interest and clearly Bodyline isn't going to restock their lolita things anymore so it is a dying "brand".

Cheaplitas relied on either Bodyline or Taobao but Bodyline has a more traditional lolita style, it doesn't look so clolita. So I think there is nostalgia for the old days of Bodyline. Like it makes me think of the really old Princess Peachie videos when her entire wardrobe was just Bodyline and it didn't look too bad. I think it's a lot harder for newbie cheaplitas who instead of having a Bodyline phase are now directed to Devilinspired which in comparison has terrible hiked up prices, all costumey conlita OTT looking things and a huge lack of basics.

I have had both a Bodyline and a Taobao phase and despite Taobao sellers having way more appealing pictures I have had way more busts with Taobao, specially when it comes to recieving things that look absolutely nothing like the image, on top of having had to wait months for them to reach.
It's why I think why Bodyline sellers on LM usually show a real picture of the clothes but Taobao ones tend to use the super photoshopped stock photo as the main one.

>items they can wear a ton without having to care if they get ruined
I can see that, but

>buy cheap stuff
is something that doesn't quite align with the experience I made.

While bodyline certainly isn't close to the average brand piece in terms of market value, some people who have bought my stuff weren't exactly holding back when it comes to splurging on it. Everybody's laughing or screaming at scalpers who are selling bodyline in truckloads for, in cgl's opinion, prices that are way too high, oftentimes above purchasing prices/retail prices. When I put up my stuff for sale though, I was shocked that like 80% of it was sold in literal minutes, mind you while pricing them taking scalper accounts into consideration too. On top of that some of the people who bought from me weren't hesitant to pay the same, if not more, for shipping around the globe than the items are worth either. Means if there are people who will gladly spend 20 bucks and more to get some socks or accessories like simple wristcuffs or bows shipped, prices can't be as much of a deciding factor as it seems. So I wonder if nostalgia or style choice like >>10688145 said are playing into this a lot too.

I want a white, pink and gold jsk with actual jewels sewn into the dress on the crown and scepter print

Last night I dreamed about finding an AP jsk at some physical store for only 20 something dollars and being shocked about it. It was white with sax pinstripes and it had red heart accents
I'm not actually from the lolita side of the board, but I am extremely curious if there is a dress like this because it'd be a literal dream dress. Maybe I saw it, forgot it, then dreamed about it

It might exist in the future.
