Time for another unpopular opinions thread! Post the opinions you can’t voice elsewhere.

>Service dogs should not be dressed in cosplay. They’re not props, they’re working to PROTECT YOU. Why give people more of a reason to distract them from their work if you really need them?

I'm not sure what the general thought on this is BUT I believe you just shouldn't bring weapon props larger than 3ft with you to cons. Once at ASTL a Maka swung around carelessly and smacked me on the face with her scythe. I know she saw me but she didn't apologise, didn't even say a word. Just. Left.

Unpopular opinion: idol threads don’t belong on cgl

>> No.10116335

This may be a popular opinion on cgl but definitely not in the real world. If you buy your costumes, you're not a cosplayer. Even if you hot glue together the shittiest garment of all time, it still makes you more of a cosplayer than someone who orders everything online.

Opinion 2: 3D printing items, even if they look better, is always less impressive to me than things made by hand. I'll admit, I 3D print things all the time, and understand that it takes quite a bit of work. But the parts I made myself I'll always be more proud of, and therefore find more impressive on other people's costumes too.

How do you explain legalization and many adults partaking in it?

>> No.10116371

Nayrt, maybe they mean the whole "attitude" you sometimes see online and especially on social media, like how stoners base their entire lifestyles on weed etc. as if that's the only thing they ever care about.
I don't care what people do in their private lives but that's kind of obnoxious, and seeing similar things in lolita (even if only anonymously) is off putting.

>> No.10116374

I agree with that. I hate weed "culture" and morons who listen to reggae because they smoke. But I don't really find this sort of thing in lolita? And I never see pot leaf socks in a coord or people doing Jamaican flag color coords.
So I'm not sure what the real complaint is.

Tbh I feel like Sugary Carnival in 2019 is super different than Sugary Carnival in 2011. It's cheaper now and I rarely see people wear it in an OTT way.

I’m fat and I completely agree. I’m actively trying to get healthier and live longer than a decade or two from now, unlike the ever growing hordes of hamplanets infesting the con and cosplay scene.

>> No.10116520

People who cry about costhots and MUH CRAFTSMANSHIP are just jelly that they can't gain followers on social media from their shit photos, fat body, bad makeup, and ugly face. No normie wants to see an amazingly constructed costume on an ugly person. There's a reason why designers have models instead of modeling their own pieces, and it's because they're not too retarded to realize that people want to look at a nice image. The fact is, the reason you don't have a bunch of followers despite having ~amazing~ construction is because you're ugly, fat, or don't know how to present yourself. Look at Kinpatsu: good armor builds and decent sewing. Frankly I think she's kinda mannish and unnattractive but she knows how to present herself and market herself, which is what grows her following.

>> No.10116521

>No normie wants to see an amazingly constructed costume on an ugly person
I mean yeah it’s better if they’re not ugly but overall this is wrong, normies and other cosplayers will still gawk at amazing construction.
Fat is different because it changes the silhouette making it inaccurate to the character.

>> No.10116526

I mean keep telling yourself that, but I can guarantee you that the reason you have <10k followers isn’t because thots ruined the scene!!1!!1!, it’s because you’re ugly. There are many cosplayers who don’t do lewds and ride on cute face for followers.

>> No.10116529

Reach out to cute girls/cosplayers on insta desu. Don't be a creep, don't be an ass, be professional and ask them to model for you. Something like "Hey, I saw your cosplays and I really like how you present yourself as each character. I was wondering if you'd be willing to model [costume name] for a photoshoot; I really wanted to make this cosplay/get good photos of this cosplay but it doesn't suit me very much. Thank you for your time!" Provide examples of your work. Tell them that they can use the images on their social media with credit back to you for the costume. Don't get offended if they say no.

Hating on something just because it's popular doesn't make you an interesting person. Except for idol shows, those need to die a fiery death. The moment 50% of a cosplay competition consists out of idol dance groups who never bothered to practice their choreography is where I draw the line.

I think it's a common misconception that "it's okay to be fat"="it's healthy to be fat", even in body positive circles. The thing that is a real problem and should stop in my opinion is the massive amount of shame and dehumanization that fat people have to endure. No, being fat isn't healthy, but there are dozens of things that aren't healthy and don't bring the people involved the smallest fraction of the abuse fat people get. Smoking cigarettes isn't healthy, yet smokers are not insulted, publicly shamed, don't have all their unrelated health issues dismissed with the phrase "just stop smoking!", don't have their self-confidence bashed at every turn simply because they smoke. Yes, fat people should be encouraged to be healthier and supported in their efforts towards that, but that doesn't mean they should just hide in the dark and shut themselves away until they are "good enough" to show themselves and enjoy hobbies by some arbitrary standard. Health is personal and being unhealthy shouldn't make you a target for all kinds of shit from complete strangers.

>> No.10116665

A lot of people who bring large costumes or props to cons have no spatial awareness and no common courtesy, I apologize whenever I so much as graze someone with my bag but people will slap you with their wings, look you in the eye and keep walking. Like hey, cosplaying at a con does not exempt you of basic social rules! If you can't make sure that your costume won't hurt other attendees, don't walk through crowds with it!
I like 3D printed items, if it looks better I don't really care about impressing people. You should pick the method that gets the best result, if the piece isn't as nice it doesn't make a difference to me that you made it by hand rather than with a machine. Of course if you didn't make the model that should count for something in a competition but other than that I look at the result more than the process. But I get being prouder of the things you made by hand, I just don't look at that when I look at someone else's costume.
I get that, I don't care if you partake but smoking weed doesn't replace a personality.
>I don't like interacting with women for the most part, they're such fickle creatures.
It would be easier if you weren't that misogynistic
On the other hand, when someone asks for constructive criticism, just being mean or condescending isn't concrit, and if someone calls you out on using the guise of concrit to be insulting don't pretend you've done no wrong and they're just too sensitive. There's a difference between concrit and being an ass.

t. Instahoe too lazy to make her own cosplays. We all see what happens when there are people behind the scenes constructing the cosplay: the model takes full credit. I'm not saying people don't want to look on a nice image, I just think the better option is to work on yourself, or at least learn the art of the shoop. Costhots normally only look good through shoop anyways.

Adding to the pile I genuinely don't care about cosplaying for social media; I got into this bullshit hobby because interacting with physical representations of fictional characters sounded like fun, not to stare at a bunch of progress pics of varying validity. As spergy as it was, the play portion was far more fun and has been lost in the era of efame.

You need to reread what I said again, you either learn to present yourself better or you hire a model to present your work if you’re that fucking ugly and fat. Don’t use the same model for every single cosplay you make and there won’t be an issue with them becoming the “face” of your work.

Even girls in my comm do this and then get all huffy when the rest of us don’t want our clothes to smell like cigarette smoke.

But seriously, fat lolita here. I will concede that the majority of fatties can't coord for shit. I will also concede that if a dress doesn't fit you and the seams are bulging and screaming for death, you shouldn't be wearing it and you look stupid if you do. I will also also concede that carrying extra weight around isn't healthy for anyone, and even if you're like me and have been blessed with the good blood pressure and cholesterol genes, you will feel it somewhere eventually (namely your knees and ankles). I've started making the effort to eat more sensible portions, and I'm already active. I've also stopped my excessive pot smoking habit because it was making me want to eat more and do less. So some of us are actually trying to turn it around before it's too late. (And some of us bathe every day, too, though I know some who don't, blech.)


Just blanket-hating on all fatties because fat is narrow-minded and shallow. That's my unpopular opinion.

>> No.10117010

I mean hate ethots all you want, but the point is that the reason these "great costumers" don't have followers isn't because ethots ruined it for them. They're ruining it for themselves by taking shit photos and looking unattractive.

Brush up on your reading comprehension skills kiddo. Good on you for having great construction, I'm sure you're very proud, but that doesn't change anything. Maybe some normies think, "Oh, that looks cool!" when they see some intricate build, but 90% of them aren't going to go follow you. People are on instagram to see pretty pictures. That's why selfies do the best interaction wise. That's why the most efamous people are attractive. Being pretty isn't a skill; it's what gets you followers, reach, and attention. That's a fact of life, and the sooner you learn it, the sooner you won't have to cry about ethots having all these "undeserved" followers. They know how to market themselves, you clearly don't.

Nothing wrong with being lolita collector. There’s a plenty of pieces that you won’t wear for various reasons, but they are still cute and it feels good having those.

the pill is very easy to use "incorrectly" because life is imperfect and theres a lot of misinformation there. theres a reason why studies have "perfect use"/"typical use" down there, because perfect use is very hard, especially if you're taking a progestin only pill, where they must be taken at the same hour on the dot or else the effectiveness goes down. also taking fiber medication, having bowel issues, taking certain anti-biotics, anything that effects digestion can affect the pill.

Not trying to downplay how amazing contraception can be, but it is good to be aware of the risks and not throw caution to the wind. Unless you are abstinent or have been sterilized/are with someone whose been sterilized you should never consider yourself completely safe from pregnancy. This isn't deflecting responsibility, its being an adult and being aware of potential situations and being prepared if they should happen.

Ok, but there are some of us who come from a time before thots where everyone looked like shit, there was no instagram to have followers, and the only way to make money off of cosplay was to sell supplies or make costumes.
Then patreon came along and a ton of dumb thots realized they could call themselves cosplayers, take lingerie pics and make money off of it by being a camgirl while feeling morally superior to sex workers.
How many of these girls would be at a con/cosplaying if they didn't make money off of it? I'm willing to bet at least 90% wouldn't be caught dead near a con.
So some of us actually just care about craftsmanship and fandom instead of followers and making money.
TLDR: You're still a sex worker and having 100k followers on instagram doesn't change that fact even if you want to call people fat and ugly.

I don't care that brands come to cons now and that there are a lot of lolita panels and fashion shows. Lolita is not a fucking anime con fashion and I can't stand that the west treats it like that. It just makes the whole thing seem more like a cosplay.

I can't stand when con-litas whine saying that cons are the only appropriate places they can wear lolita. First of all an anime con is not an appropriate place to wear lolita unless you actually wear lolita all the time. Second, do these people literally not go out anywhere else between cons??? You really can't put on a dress to go grab coffee or brunch with a friend? You can't wear it to go shopping (for not clothes, I get its hard to try things on)? Not even just like a toned down coord for your only free day of the week when you buy groceries and see your bf or family? I find that extremely hard to believe.

I have been wearing lolita daily since 2005 and this isn't true. I live in a huge city and go a lot of different places throughout my day, seeing many different people. Some days I get a lot of comments, usually complements, and some days maybe one or 2 that are any more than just a few words. People rarely stop me, it's more just an in passing thing, a few words about how they like my outfit then carry on. Even when I lived in a smaller place, people rarely stopped me.

My comm often organizes meet-ups in very family-friendly places like theme parks, zoos, children’s museums, family restaurants etc because “aesthetics” but then when it turns out there are actual children there (shock horror) they act like it’s some alien infestation. I’ve had other lolitas get upset with me for being friendly to kids who came up to us in a park because that would encourage more of them. If we’re supposed to shun all children why are we in a theme park specifically catered to small kids? Seems a little counterproductive.

I have noticed that some of the people who are the loudest about hating kids are also loud and insistent on loving their pets as much if not more than parents love their children. Yet when one of their pets dies or even just gets too old or sick to play with they immediately go shopping for a new one and never mention the old one again. Honestly I think they're just very emotionally immature but most of them are already in their mid-20's so I don't know what the likelihood is of them growing out of this mentality.

I do agree with this. I personally wouldn't want to bring a child to a lolita meetup because I think it would be unfair to both the child and the other lolitas. I think I'd either spend all my time focused on the child and ignoring the other adults or I'd spend too much time chatting and neglecting the child. Maybe if we were just picnicking in a park or at the zoo and I could bring my partner to help look after the kid, but eh idk. I just think it would be too distracting on both ends.

Suddenly you're expected to know all the "rules" and read up on things for hours, just to wear a lolita skirt. Some people are so afraid of being called ita (mainly thanks to online comms like cgl) that they never end up wearing their coord outside the house.

I'm really happy that there is someone out in the planet who gets just how boring and fastidious it is to try to enjoy something when a lot of communities are so obsessed with rules, looking their absolute, by the book, best, etc.
Also I get what some posters said about the different communities and I do not know if it actually is the case that any of them are indeed inclusive.
I've met countless Lolita from around the globe and I've never felt comfortable around them. Also, because I befriended quite a few I also knew them personally so what I saw them doing was what felt like hazing and intentionally planned out commentary too.
As an outsider who happened to have a privileged position I saw a lot of ugly things, rumor spreading, jealousy over body weight, eating disorders...
I feel like good communities would be rare. I just wanted to enjoy myself lol.
But instead I felt like if I wore Lolita I'd become a target, and worse, a source of pain for the girls who had eating disorders who already were struggling to begin with. And the thing is that there wasn't any love or casual joy and conversation. It was either really awkward or nerdy spazzing out over brand and rules... Or heavy duty gossiping.
... I didn't want to die not having worn the fashion I love, so I did it anyway lol.
I really love you girls, but the community is really off putting and passive aggressive, and when it comes to wearing alternative fashion people need to come together and protect each other... It doesn't feel like that would happen for most girls who'd love to wear Lolita but don't have this type of type C personality.

Humans are social creatures. This is a fact as true as gravity.
Turning away girls from communities, girls who you haven't even given yourself the time to get to know, is harming Lolita brands, the image of people who wear Lolita, etc. This is a fact that won't change no matter how much yelling and shitposting you do about your personal opinion that Lolita is only for those who "can take the heat".

Facts aside, my personal opinion is that it's ugly anyway. It is genuinely disturbing to watch this inhuman drive of destroying other humans, or demanding that they be the least human possible in order to not be treated poorly in communities.

It's a ridiculous request, and likely a projection of how your parents raised you.

Psychoanalysis aside, the only reason I said that you have an "average girl living beyond her means complex" is that you appear very insecure. People who are secure don't say shit like "GOTTA KNOW HOW TO TAKE THE HEAT KYS ITA."

That's the kind of idea about how the world works that ultimately indicates a disordered understanding of what compassion and empathy are and their value. Plus how love and protecting one another is a fundamental human STRENGTH.

... Ultimately, it is bad PR to be hateful, it turns girls away when you are a conceited asshole who demands ridiculous things from newbies like looking extra good from day one, this harms brands, and, the final truth, Lolita begun as a street fashion.
A street fashion may even have rules like Lolita does, but it still having street fashion background implies personal freedom and expression. Not personal limitation, ability to take the heat, and a pathological ability to always exist by the rules and behave like "Lolita must".

While I do agree that there IS toxicity and vile behavior in the general community, it's ultimately common in anonymous forums, for obvious reasons. Maybe I'm naive but I don't think it's common practice for comms to actively turns girls away and tells them to kill themselves; "kys ita" is hardly anything beyond a shitpost and it's really not that deep.

>having street fashion background implies personal freedom and expression.
There's actually a lot of room for self expression in the fashion, getting concrit doesn't mean that you're being stifled, just that others see your coord differently and are trying to help. Sometimes concrit is completely subjective, if you're happy with your coord as it is, just take the comments gracefully and keep doing you. No one is going to kick you out for having your own personal style. But if someone is being told to wear a blouse or a petticoat, or to buy their clothes from more reputable sources than Milanoo, and they take that as a personal attack and decide to leave, it's on them and it doesn't mean that their comm is toxic.

How many comms have you been in? I used to be in a smaller comm where they were more welcoming because they're just glad to get new members, but in my current comm it's common to give concrit to new lolitas that didn't ask for any. It's just a fact most girls are sensitive and easily feel "attacked" when a stranger/someone she met for the first time negatively comments on how she looks. For new people it can also be harder to wear lolita by themselves so I understand why it makes some people give up. I guess most lolitas don't care about them, if you don't love lolita enough to "take the heat" or be a lonelita, lolita is not for you etc. But I think it would be better if more comms were like >>10118682.

Girlschannel is full of old bitter people, not really girls lol.

European lolita events are completely unrelated to conventions, and official information from the brands themselves is in Japanese or sometimes English.

That's not an unpopular opinion, that's a fact. They're failed normies who couldn't make it in the world of big tits and ass, so they downsized their aspirations to something they could monopolize. Underground fashion.

normies care about normie things, like status, weddings, family, pets, being seen as an amazing person, fitting in, faking nice, acting for the sake of appeasing others.
This is what the "average" human looks like, hence the term normie. Being someone who joins lolita fashion and then approaches it with a really bizarre "this is about status and being capable of taking the HEAT now" attitude, is a fundamentally normie attitude in face of art, street fashion and aesthetics.

It is never going to not be normie to approach any fashion style because of reasons unrelated to enjoying the fashion itself, or fashion in general.

Gatekeeping and being a cunt about people who are "not following the rules" is the classic form of gate-keeping that normies utilize to salvage their egos and positions as the "queen" or "king", aka the big fish in the small pond.

Sorry, I'm the OP of this unpopular opinion and desu I just got really bored and lazy of listening to idiots trying to justify being dickheads with lies like "concrit" etc.

I'm just exhausted of how they'll never take this seriously. They'd rather see brands die than admit they're just full of themselves and that they don't actually respect the fashion, their ego depends on keeping their self-image pristine, so they'll never admit to this or change.

>imagine getting this butt aggravated about what other people think of you
Instead of wasting time trying to change how other people think and do things, why don't you try instead to change yourself? Learn not to let the opinions of others bother you so much, you will ultimately be much happier. Trying to change others is a good way to drive yourself insane.

I get what you mean but arguing in this way is futile because in their mind, they are protecting the fashion. They believe that if they don't gatekeep, itas will become the majority and make the fashion ugly.

>> No.10119728

by this reasoning telling new lolitas that they have to wear a petticoat is 'normie'.
You're conveniently forgetting that some sort of gate keeping is necessary, or some asshole is going to roll up to a meet in jeans and a ruffled shirt and claim that they're wearing lolita.

Good, then act according to it next time.

>We're just having a conversation.
A conversation implies that you actually address what I write.

You took replies and quotes completely out of context and replied to things I didn't even say. Which is weird, that's why I asked.

>If hold the opinion that "we're just giving concrit" in order to give people shit for no reason when they never asked for your advice - then you are apart of that group.

Lolita is not a street fashion anymore desu. It's like a uniform you can wear with in different colours and combinations, but if you miss a piece of the uniform you look like shit and you are not a lolita.

>> No.10119734

Look. I see you either have a primitive understanding of wrong/right, or you're too far down in the narcissism to realize that you're wrong.

But allow me to deconstruct this:
>it's totally ok to be shitty to the people that I think are assholes. But the rest of you guys can't be shitty to me, even though I'm also behaving like a jerk.

The original poster was not being an idiot, the person said person responded to was the one instigating this type of reaction.

I think that perhaps you don't understand that tolerance functions as a conditional, and that tolerating intolerance isn't a correct appreciation of reality.
In face of intolerance we exercise intolerance, so don't be surprised if you get insulted for being a cunt.
Wow what a damn shocker huh? Who knew it could be this simple to just not be an idiot who shitposts "kys ita".

>implying i'm the kysita person
if you really wanted to be happier you would take my advice about changing yourself, because trying to change other people (especially those who don't want to be changed) is an exercise in frustration. But you would rather cry because someone else has a differing opinion.
Enjoy wallowing in the hell of your own making then.

>> No.10119747

I've repeated myself multiple times but it still doesn't seem to resonate with the rest of the anons so let me clarify this once more.
This is just an opinion that I hold, but Lolita brands are still dying. And what I am suggesting and describing to be my personal opinion, is that the gate-keeping and general catty behavior is what is killing the fashion.

Because if there was no gate-keeping, the countless amounts of girls who think Lolita is super cute would indeed just keep furthering their interest, eventually find about brands, buy stuff, etc. expand.
And instead of that Lolitas have bad reputation, they keep creating bad content that gives them bad PR, and they seem to even enjoy and have fun making memes based on their shitty behavior as a community.

This is how things die.

>> No.10119748

Nayrt but people talked about that several times up thread. Girls are sensitive about how they look, so if you criticise them they give up. So less people that buy from brands.

that's because your opinion is stupid, and trying to change how other people behave is stupid and the only thing that you really have any kind of control over is yourself and how you feel and react.
But you can keep arguing about it on this obscure yak herding forum all you want, Sisyphus-chan.

>> No.10119763

People change how others behave and feel every day literally all the time. Sometimes just by giving them some perspective, sharing experiences, giving their opinion, or more extreme cases like punching someone in the face when they do something you don't like also changes how they feel and behave around you.

>> No.10119765

I don't expect any outcomes or changes. I've stated multiple times in fact that I know this will never change.
It's still my opinion that this is what is killing the brands and will keep killing them. If you're offended that I'm suggesting that Lolitas have a really bad public image then that's fine, it doesn't make my opinion shit though.

Just wanted to air out this thought, maybe lurkers who are afraid of questioning the idiots in their communities will now have found themselves invigorated to do what they do indeed think would be the right thing to do.

I'm done pushing that rock now, have a good day.
