I'm getting post-con depression from the lack of appraisal online from the cosplays I make. I'm maybe 5 cosplays in, definitely getting a lot better at making them, but seeing girls buy skimpy cosplays, put in a drop of the effort, and posted all over insta with tons of followers is really depressing when you've worked hard on something and they don't. I get compliments in person and people say that I'm the best X character at a given con they saw, but nobody posts photos online of me which makes me feel shitty in a weird way.

It's a huge amount of jealousy when you see some costhot get a fuckton of beta orbiters because she bought a Zero Two outfit with no care for the character, while you painstakingly check concept art for a character you love, because it's a character you love. But even so, I want the appraisal online dammit. Any other cosplayers get the same feel?

I started working on garments again and I find it to be a lot more zen. Maybe I'll go back to making clothes, at least in those circles you can't do the easy cop-out of appealing to betas.

>Looks fine most of the time
Unless you're wearing a very simple piece, or a specific piece that doesn't have a very voluminous skirt anyway, it looks bad. Most lolita dresses are made to be worn with petticoats, so most of them look deflated and sad without one, especially if they're printed.

I got groped without my permission all over my privates waiting in line for a panel. I was acting slutty, but I was just trying to be in character. The other person in line took it way to seriously. I got firm and said don't do that again or I'll report you. I was a dude by the way cosplaying as Grell from that Kuroshitsuji. My only other confessions is a shaved my body once for cosplay. I also was lured into a room by a fan girl to then learn she was 14 and her dad came in so I had to play it off as if I was 16 when I was really 21. We didn't do anything, right when I went to slip out he showed up.

I have made marginal improvements in my craftsmanship, despite starting to cosplay in 2011. I put off working on costumes until the last days of the con, then rush through and make a botched job. Then I swear to never do it again as I continue to do it again.

I finally gave up on it and bought a premade cosplay this year, and am considering commissioning something for my next con, despite being an elitist fuck when I started and making fun of people that didn't craft because I wanted my costume to be ~~SPESHUL~~

I very frequently day-dream of somehow becoming super rich, and then hosting tea parties and lolita meets constantly in my lavish and cute apartment. Everyone would have their own unique tea set, and my cute cat would be wandering around and we'd all just be having a lovely time. I could bake the sweets and curate the teas. I would wear lolita often and wear cute slippers inside to match.
In my spare time i can hang around in my dressing room, gush over my clothing and browsing auction sites to buy anything as i please.

I'm constantly buying cosplay materials and planning new ones, only to always drop the idea right before I complete the outfit.

I feel you so hard on this. There was a bathing suit cosplay I did for a contest a while ago to get free shit in this game I play. I was uploading pictures a few days ago of a new recent cosplay I did which was very complex but not revealing and uploaded the bathing suit cosplay as well afterwards. New cosplay didn't get jack shit for attention but the bathing suit cosplay sure did. It really fucking sucks that more skin less detail is the standard now.

All I can say to you is do it because you have an enjoyment and dedication to the series you're cosplaying. Have someone you know take photos of you in full cosplay to your preference of setting and time so you don't have to worry about when and who is uploading photos of you onto the internet.
Until normies and normie hoes stop invading spaces they don't really give a fuck about nor deserve to be in, skimpy shit is unfortunately the value in cosplay for the time being.

I personally really wish cosplay was more "homemade" than it is now. Even if there are a couple of imperfections, I love it when people put in the legwork to make their stuff because I (personally) think it shows a lot more passion for the character and the art. I'm honestly happier seeing a total amateur with a homemade zentai or something than some costhot with an aliexpress thing.

At the same time, the huge amount of normies, normie hoes, and beta orbiters that are in the space is insane. Like, all a slightly attractive (and I use this term lightly, given momokun) girl could buy some shitty bikini and a ratty wig and call it a "beach episode" or some stupid shit like that (not calling you out) and get several times the exposure of, say, an armored knight

also moderately pissed that at the same levels of attractiveness and cosplay skill, a girl will get swarmed several dozen times more than a guy would. To be noticed, it seems you either have to be a total malethot with an extremely toned body or a god at armor-crafting, which is kind of annoying. Can't really rely on the ""cute"" factor. just realized how autistic this probably reads.

Just gonna take a break and sewing some garments before I get back into the grind for ABoston.

have you thought switching to garment work to get a mental reset? It's v cozy, and you can do something as simple as a t-shirt or a satchel or something.

I am actually very jealous of pretty girls. I hate when bad coords, looks, and personalities get a pass because "Wow she's so cute!" And I hate when they're pretty and talented. I can put more effort in and get a quarter of the likes because I'm not cute. I hate hearing people complain about catcalling and dick pics because I've never gotten that; I'm not attractive. That's not to say that's not a problem, but complaining about how you get SO MANY men in your messages really is just bragging about how pretty you are. I hate it. I'm not fat or anything either.

I haven’t worn lolita in months but I still obsess over it and I can be a huge douche about people doing it wrong.

Confession: Lately I’m bored with lolita in favor of ‘normie’ jfashion. New releases fail to excite me and I feel like I’m buying wish list dresses because I have to, not because I want to. When they come in the mail I feel nothing and put them straight in my closet. Also the attention I get when wearing lolita outside bothers me lately, so I wear it very rarely.

On the flip side I’m excited whenever some normie jfashion brand releases cute pants or sneakers. Before this year I didn’t wear pants for years.

I don’t want to quit lolita though because I feel like it’s part of who I am.

I'm quickly realizing that there's a big disconnect between being able to make cosplays of characters and being able to pull them off, and a lot of characters I love are characters I don't think I can pull off well. On top of that, I've been in a huge creative rut as to what characters to work on. But you 100% rite about the inadequacy part, I've been just keeping off my cosplay insta and just browsing leddit for DIY inspo

honestly I agree with you that's it's p scummy when I claim that and also claim that I'm doing it because I love the characters and seeing people get happy when they see me. Just pisses me off when people that put in less effort get more rewards, especially when it's the same cosplay that I made.

If you really want there is always surgery. Not saying you should, just pointing out there are options. There is no shame in improving your appearance towards your personal beauty standards imho. But don't feel forced. If you don't like the idea there is no need for surgery no matter how you look.

Anyways, as others said, those comments are not just how pretty you are. I've got ton compliments on the way I look, but stuff like dickpicks and freaks not really, beside maybe once or twice. I'm one of the pretty girls, but I'm also rather casual about my fashion choices, not posting it everywhere beside some coords I really like but just wear it (which isn't bad, but does relate to how much messages you get), in fact I'm behind on posts I do want to make. And tons of ugly girls get comments like that too. It's really bad indication of appearance.

Even as a pretty person I still often feel bad. I'm vain and idolise perfection. I get mad at anything from mm work in my bones to one little acne bumb. And I spend way too much time and money on imy looks, and nitpick every little thing but I also love looking at myself. As soon as my appearance goes backwards a bit, even if it's thanks to illness or so, I feel like crap and stop caring about everything. Anytime something happens that might hurt my appearance I get horribly scared. I also feel social anxiety and fear people will think less of me if I get less pretty, but also worry people only like me for how I look, and I fear getting older because of wrinkels and such, and envy anyone with a better face. Like, my need to keep my looks up is really obsessive. I guess the point is, feeling bad about looks won't go away from being pretty. It's just the exact worry that changes.

Ironically the most "true" ones are probably the almost-normies who love Naruto and then buy their shit for a con or two to just dick around in, or the amateurs who make a janky suit but are just happy to be there. most of the "career cosplayer" eventually give up cosplaying characters they lose and just do what sells/what is popular

I feel like I have no real hobbies or past times. My bf is very into video games, has a core discord group, and me. I have him, and now lolita. I feel like it has made me more secure in myself, because it makes me look less like someone with no interests, to one with a big interest! Don't get me wrong, I love the clothes, and style, but I don't know that I would wear it if I didn't feel so isolated, and almost desperate for anything to feel like i belong to a group?

>> No.10059265

>their secrets.
People posting here tend to post personal stuff without trace to them as a person (unless they're idiots) so you don't know more than "this applies to at least 1 person in the world" which can always be expected, or post rather general stuff that could be expected to exist but people are too butthurt to hear it somewhere else because their feelings can't handle it.

Further you'll find bait, roleplayers, discussion on current events, and general talk. Exactly what "secrets" are you learning that you actually can do something with that you couldn't do before coming her to rp?

Beside, if you don't belong here, you probably can't devide rp from actual people so you get a screwed up image. Not to forget there are male cosplayers and brolitas so it's not really a woman's only space.

>> No.10059268

>they're way too knowledgeable on girl topics
They can be rp longer than you. You say now learn, so why wouldn't they?

>Learn what girls do when there are no guys around (tearing each other apart apparently)
Most it's not so different from with guys around, beside feminine topics come up in conversation more because guys rarely relate nor want to hear it all the time. 4chan always sounds more salty. If you think it shows how woman act without man around you're dumb. It's not that special.

>Learn how girl clothes work, this is not as obvious as you might believe
Google? Libraries? 4chan as primary learning enviourment, especially taking a niche fashion board for general girls clothes, isn't a really great source if that's all you use. It's nice to ask or talk, but if you don't have basic knowledge to devide bait and idiotic "advice" from good advice you're not going to get far. Having a reliable base wouldn't harm when comming here.

>Also I really like cute clothes, who else am I going to discuss them with?
You wear it? Join a fashion comm. You don't? Why do you want to discuss it? You can do here, sure, but how much conversation can you hold without experience? If you want to learn, sure you can ask stuff, but then do keep the last point in mind.

There are things that guys do together and immediately stop doing when a girl appears, it has to be the same the other way around.

NAYRT but when I'm in mainly male dominated online group people talk to me like I'm a guy too, while I'm not. This old post isn't really wrong, people do talk different to you online if they don't know you gender and they can just assume. It counts in more contexts than woman and (the attention for) their tits. Just look at how most lolita's hate guys in the fashion because they often look bad and cause trouble with fetishists? But if no one knows you're a guy and you don't talk too manly or dumb (or just read without commenting) you can participate, where you can't even just sit and listen with a group of lolita's in rl, even when the actual topic of conversation interests you.

Considering it's a confession tread, it's an ok post I guess.

>> No.10059397

Except they are still attracted to you. Finding someone else hot (or even hotter) doesn't suddenly mean they aren't attracted to you physically, let alone emotionally.

I can't help but roll my eyes whenever someone insinuates that "the west" is doing lolita wrong and the Japanese lolitas are all laughing at us, which seems to happen an awful lot on this board. Like, if I don't care about the fact that people in my immediate vicinity think I'm weird because of how I dress, why would I care about what some girls on the other side of the world thinks? That whole insult hinges on the fact that the people who say it think that everyone looks up to Japanese lolitas as some sort of otherworldly fashion godesses, and that makes them sound more pathetic than the people they're insulting to me. I just happen to like a certain style of frilly clothes, and I'm going to keep liking it regardless of what's popular with girls in Japan at the moment.

There are a lot of armchair lolitas or 'lolitas at heart' here as >>10059860 stated. Maybe they own a skirt or some accessories or one dress but they don't dress in the fashion regularly or attend meets.

My beef with them is that they hyper-idealize and often they so quickly jump on all kinds of things in a very critical way, I think from frustration that they can't or don't really wear it and participate in real life. So their posts, especially when plentiful and often opinionated, can skew or even derail the discussion.

It's not a bad thing to want to discuss your fashion with only other people who actually wear it. It would be really great to have that space actually.

It's okay to not know what you want to pursue in hobbies, or to not have one. Part of exploring what you like is doing what you're doing. It may come from the motivation of wanting to HAVE a hobby, but to me that doesn't seem so different than trying something and figuring out if you like it. After all, in the end if you gain something from it and have fun, there you have a hobby now. If you don't like it as much as you'd hope, you're free to drop it. There's no rule that says you have to like it as much as anybody else, or that it can't be a social hobby for you first and foremost. If you make friends through it and share in their enthusiasm more than you have your own, you are still being a good friend by engaging them. That's not fake. :)

Dude, people are promiscuous sure, but I take offense that polyamory is 'disgusting', people have those kind of relationships in a stable way just as often as not. You don't hear about them because they're not shitting their friends lists up with drama or sleeping around outside their relationship because boundaries. This has nothing to do with cosplay lewds and people being slutty.

You don't have to like it but don't lump people in as whores just because they are emotionally committed with more than one person.

I'm too shy to even do shippy pics with close friends beyond the fluffy kind of handholding stuff, but I sometimes wish I had the balls to try at least a kiss or embrace photo. I'd probably just ruin it by laughing or making ugly faces, though, and think that a lot of that kind of stuff just comes across better in fanart. I don't knock friends for doing their shippy photoshoots because I ship the hell out of my favorite characters, but it can often look cringy or just downright dumb, and I'm afraid of coming off that way, too.

I wish it was. I was already suspicious, but seeing this post made me dig into my BF's facebook messages on his laptop. I'm so fucking pissed right now I don't know what to do. He doesn't come home until like 8 PM so I've got like 8 hours to destroy his shit and hang myself before he comes home.

Fuck you, Vicky.

The only reason I care about my grandfather dying is because him and my grandmother used to give me quite a bit of money for christmas and some for my birthday.
He was a mysoginistic asshole that i put up with solely for the money. I hope I'll at least be on his will and get something worthy.
I should feel bad but I just don't. Not ever since he told my mom to "get over" my dad cheating on her because "it was only once".

I think you're totally in the right and thank god that asshole is dead. Good riddance to bad rubbish.
I'd of taken his money too.

I used to staff at this fairly large con. I quickly grew out of it and actually hate going to anime convention now. I still staffed there because of the behind the scene shenanigans and drama.

Now that this ship is sinking, i realized that i've wasted so many years working so hard for the success of a convention that I never liked after the magic wore off and that it was doomed for years now.

Breaks my heart when I hear or read cosplayers and attendees being so hyped for the next edition and keeping myself from spilling too much tea

I just started getting into cosplay and want to loose weight before I cosplay because I'm scared I'll look fat
