I got in to lolita 8 years ago. As a teenager, I was friendless and socially awkward, but lolita gave me a sense of community and friendship, so I really threw myself in to it even though I was an ita little shit. I was very cringey and embarrassing, but I sure did have a good time. The only real sense of self and identity I felt was through the fashion. Fast forward, I grew up, still kinda socially retarded but somehow have a bunch of friends.
However, I’ve completely lost touch with lolita, and the only reason I can even call myself a lolita at this point is because I have a bunch of poofy dresses in my closet. I haven’t worn it at all in over a year, not even wearing any of my pieces casually, which I used to do a lot.
I miss the joy I used to find in this fashion. Has anyone else fallen out of touch at some point? How do you regain interest?

It may be that the pieces you have aren't your style anymore. I'd say look around GLB scans, lolibrary, your tumblr archive from back then if you had one etc. Try to see if you can find things you really, really would like to wear, focus on those pieces/styles. It has worked for me, I "quit" lolita two years ago and started with boystyle instead, since that was what I really really wanted to wear.

Nayrt, I have a massive wardrobe but wear lolita proper maybe once a month. Rest of the time it's casual lolita and I don't really call it that when I talk to people. I don't think you're out of the fashion completely just because you don't wear it often or mingle with other lolitas? In anon's case, I think she counts as out of the fashion only because it sounds like she totally disconnected from her clothes and they might as well not be there.

I don't hate trannies at all and I used to work with a bunch that were all really great professionally and even when I hung out with them outside of work, they were all cool and didn't do creepy shit.

But I'm so sick of the straight up skinwalker transbians. Especially the lolita ones. They always look kind of off and tend to talk about spergy topics. Plus they seem to take the most offense about gender shit.

I just feel like so many of these trans people,especially "transwomen" come out of the woodwork and go "oh now i'm transbian" to get to screech at lesbians for being twanzphobic over not liking dick and male looking bodies. So many look like men in makeup and it feels uncanny,especially in lolita. But I know that some are genuinely just miserable being born male so i feel kinda sorta bad for them and being so hateful.

Those who screech the loudest about gender are also the ones who feel the most insecure about it. I have many trans friends of different genders and they feel comfortable enough in their gender identity to not give a damn about transphobes. A close friend of mine is a trans guy and he hates it when lgbtq people turn queerness into a personality.

Honestly hate it when sissies reeee the loudest about gender, they're not fucking trans and are genuinely hated by every single trans person I've ever talked to.

That's what I've found too. I know plenty that won't lose their minds if you slip up when speaking because duh, sometimes people mis speak because no one is perfect.

Can’t do the flat lay measurements since I’m out of the house, but I’ve gained weight recently and there’s still some room before the shirring stretches.

I’m a little worried about how the back will look once I lose the weight again, but I’m sure a smaller anon will be able to answer that question in the next couple of weeks.

For the record, waist is around 68cm and bust is 85cm so chubby chans and wide rib cage anons can rest easy.

Yes and no.

The country doesnt indicate the quality itself, you can have good and bad factories. The idea that the quality must be shit because it is made in China is racist. We really dont know about the situation of the factories AP uses, we can only make assumptions why they use different factories in different countries.

But we do know that in general China isnt dirt cheap anymore for this stuff so going to other countries could be just a price thing. Paying someone pennies doesnt mean the quality of the garment is worse, it just means it is unethical. QA may be lacking if they are lazy but I think AP does keep on top of that, and probably moved factories when that happened or when fabric was stolen..etc.

>> No.10311866

Don't know where you got the idea that it's racist. If you grow up receiving things made in china that break easily or wear out quickly a certain perception of products from there can be developed. There was a time where expensive toys manufactured in china were being painted with lead based paints. They were great quality, you know, except for that. It conditions consumers viewpoint. This gets extended to companies like AP; in that case it's a combination of factories and standards dropping on the part of the brand. How many people had zipper, lace and print quality issues after the factory switches?

>> No.10311892

>>10311889
That perception itself is steeped in racism. Because your high quality items are also Chinese made, as is most things now. There are good and bad factories and practices. The idea that Chinese=cheap=shitty is incentivize with the fake finishing products in America to slap on the Made in USA label.

We can assume that the factories that had issues with Ap aren’t being used anymore as they are now also going to other countries, and it isn’t every release with such issues. We haven’t seen any print stealing Taobao stuff too so they clearly fixed that issue. So Ap is dealing with these issues as they come up, doesn’t mean it is going to be a shit product.

Anon it sounds like maybe you're at a low point rn or having a rough time with your self image? I was dealing with this a lot and I ended up leaving/going on hiatus? from lolita for two years before I could finally bring myself to get back into it.

I felt like a faker because I wasn't wearing it consistently, so the few times I tried to force myself to put it on it felt disingenuous and shameful. Which is dumb because they're just clothes, but I didn't feel like I had a right to be wearing them.

I got out of it once I left my abusive relationship (my partner had shamed me for being a lolita constantly) and started working on myself through therapy and such. Now I wear lolita constantly again, they're basically my regular clothes.

I would maybe look at other aspects of your life and see if that could be what's going on? Especially if you've lost interest in any other hobbies, or don't like doing things you used to/normally do. Maybe you need to make some changes! :)

They shit on China compared to Japan. Unfortunately because of economic crisis a few years ago, a lot of manufacturers in Japan closed down and that's why some lolita brands moved part of production to China. Luckily working conditions in China are improving. That also means it's getting more expensive there and production becomes slower, so some cheap and fast brands moved to countries like Myanmar and Bangladesh. Now there's pressure on those countries to improve too, so I'm guessing those brands will have to keep moving, which makes it more difficult to keep quality consistent.

If you check their store currently, a lot of their stuff isn't ita either.
I called those anons new not only because they called marble as a whole ita based on one picture, but because they didn't even know marble existed at all. It's been around for a long time. I'm not sure how you couldn't have heard of it unless you were new.

The ouji pageant was less cringey than the 2018 show, I actually enjoyed watching it. But overall there wasn't a lot to do.

Hey CGL!

I'm currently working on my own html lolita website and I want it to have a section dedicated to pulling all resources on lolita fashion together in one place; especially including retrieved and easily viewable pages from websites that no longer exist, such as lolitafashion .org and hellolace.

My question is: Are there any other websites you would like to see specific pages retrieved from and made easily viewable? (I'll only do sections or pages of a website, not the entire thing.)

I don't wanna ask on Rufflechat bc half of that place is filled with roleplayers and sissies anyways.

The Wunderwelt original petti is pretty damn fluffy. It's too big for the majority of my dresses desu but I keep it around for a few heavy pieces that crush smaller pettis.

We do yes, but newbies nowadays don't, hence why I wanna upload important pages to a website I can advertise on my social media. You wouldn't believe how many lolitas these days don't even know where the fashion originated from. I'm desperately trying to help fix that.

Sure thing! From the very top to the lace it’s 89 cm. For the skirt its 59 cm. I’m 5’5 and it was a bit shorter than most dresses

Because we pay good money for our stuff, we aren’t asking SS for a favor- it’s because of us they can pay bills and do what they love without having to work a hard job at fast food place or something worse. We aren’t begging for the favor to have our items

I don't feel very qualified to judge fabric quality, but it's definitely a lot thinner & more lightweight than than the original. And there's definitely a shininess to it, although it's not terribly strong. I don't think I have any other polyester AP dresses (besides 1 chiffon piece) so I can't really compare it to those.

The original has a built-in petticoat and the rerelease does not.

I do have the 12M one and I love it!
It is poofy enough that I don’t have to layer it which is what I was looking for.
Not too OTT on its own, but certainly enough for everyday wear.

I also have a 60cm Aurora & Ariel one for my longer dresses. It’s the mid-poof one, so not the Mini or the super puffy one. It’s great for my longer MmM dress that’s not made for a big petticoat.

Website archiving anon again

Gonna specify some things:
-Yes I do know lolita resources that I will already be going through and archiving; however I'm a human being and I've been here since 2011 there are obviously going to be at least a few I've forgotten, or wouldn't think to be important unless someone else thought to mention it

-Most lolitas don't even understand what I mean when I refer to LJ, often asking what it is, much less do they know how to use it, so how would they be able to go through and find these resources? Half the links are dead anyways so it's largely useless at this point.

-How would any lolita who joined after 2014 or 2015 even KNOW about these resources when some of them closed down and stopped working even prior to that. How will they know to use the Wayback Machine for something they don't even know exists? They might not even know what the Wayback Machine IS.

-There is NO guarantee the Wayback Machine will be around forever. It's nearly 2020 and look at how many websites and website hosts have closed down since 2009. Wayback has a far smaller userbase than Wikipedia, and when WIKIPEDIA has to put giant annoying popups on every page begging for handouts just to keep afloat there is no guarantee that Wayback will be able to accomplish the same.

THOSE are the reasons I'd like to try and back up the most important things to keep them all together in one place that is easily accessible with working links that direct users to pages within the website rather than relying on external sites which might not always be around.

So please if anyone has any additional websites they want pages or sections backed up from please let me know. I might already have it on my list but it can't hurt for you to mention it just in case.

That's certainly possible. It also came to me with a bit of yellowing on the bodice. I think the new release still looks darker when compared to the original stock photos, but I could be wrong.

Ayrt, I would have gone with mint kidney but she put a message out saying she wasn’t going to do it, then later retracted and started accepting orders but by that time I was already booked in with Tenshi. I’m not trying to trash talk Tenshi, though. I’ve used her a couple times and she’s always been nice. Everyone has a right to take a holiday, I’m just disappointed I’ll be getting it late but if that’s the worst thing in my life I’ll live. I waited this long, another month won’t kill me

She probably didn't know what her vacation plans were going to be 6 months ago when the reservation was happening? I feel bad for the people who are going to get their stuff late, but this kind of thing isn't that unexpected when you're using a service run by a single person.

I wouldn’t have planned vacation until everyone got their orders. They just arrived and she just went on vacation? There’s not many places open in Kyoto, Osaka, and Hiroshima (the popular vacation spots other than Hokkaido) until January 1st or 4th because new years so why go on vacation now? It just sounds like she doesn’t want to deal with it
