We have a ton of bitching and feels threads so let's have a positive one.
Talk about something you're happy about relating to cosplay/lolita or a story of something positive that happened pertaining to the hobby. I'll start.

>> No.10348191

At a meet up an older woman walked up to me and said "Oh is this some kind of fashion group?"
This made me happy. People always assume it is a costume for some play or something and it was just nice to have the correct thing be their first guess.
I am not mad when people guess wrong, but it made me smile.

I tried lolita hoping to make friends at first, then my personality got in the way as it always does. Went out to a concert, not hoping to meet anybody but got complimented and made a decent friend. Everything turned out better than expected!

I volunteer (2 days a week) at a care home for elderly people and the old ladies absolutely adore my clothes and ask me regularly if I bought something new, they usually want to see pic of what I bought. It's so cute they like Axes Femme, Fint and other J-Fash brands, even lolita (I mostly own old school BtssB stuff and though I don't wear that to "work" I showed them my collection as I have a private pinterest board where I keep track off my wardrobe). I actually started dressing up more when I go there, just to impress my ladies hehe.

Thought my hair was too long for a cute hairstyle for so long so I just didn't bother, actually did a bit of troubleshooting and practice and it actually looks good on me.

I've been working on a project for someone else for a really long time and I'm so tired of it. I was feeling really unmotivated and uninspired but now that I'm finally almost done I've been getting really excited about being able to work on my own projects again. I bought GLB Extra 2 and OnS 7 and I'm looking forward to improving my drafting skills.

I’ve finally gotten to the point where I can afford to buy more non-normie clothing, and it’s making me so happy. Snatching up Jesus Diamante clothes that I adored when I was just getting into jfash feels so good, and I feel like my outer appearance is starting to reflect my inner self much more. Several randos have called me a princess, which gives me all the warm feelings

I finally confessed to my crush last year and we started dating this month. He likes my style (I wear a lot of lplita or general cute pastel or girly ruffly things and always tells me how cute I am but he isn't creepy or into it in a sexual way and we hang out and watch anime and play D&D and share memes together; it's the best kind of relationship a weeb daily lolita like me could ask for :)

I've been to cons before, but this time I'm going to try cosplay for the first time. I might just do something simple with a green morph suit and a business suit, but I'm going to try.

I just bought my first lolita skirt, it was pretty cheap and common but to me it represents finally having the freedom to wear what I want. I wanted to wear lolita since high school but my parents wouldn't let me so it's pretty exciting

I gained 14 lbs over the course of a year so I decided to lose not just the weight I gained but 34 lbs in total.

So far I lost 13 lbs and if I play my cards right I'll lose the rest of the weight by the end of June. I'm excited for potentially being able to fit into unshirred MM or MmM! Probably not due to my massive ribcage but it's a nice thought.

Good on you anon, keep up the good work.

Follow up: I finished the project and handed it over to the person I was making it for. Unfortunately my sewing machine broke down, but since this is the positivity thread, I'll say I'm grateful my grandma is kind enough to offer to help me pay for repairs. I got my issues of OnS that I ordered in the mail and my first project is going to be a matching bustier/skirt set that when worn together looks like a JSK. Just gotta wait for my machine to be repaired!

>> No.10356279

People are so sweet about my lolita outfits, like 95% of my street interactions are really positive and kind. People tend to be bemused but delighted at the same time. It's such a boost to have that kind of happy reaction from people.

i've been totally disinterested in lolita for the past couple of years because I moved to a city with a very active comm to a city with barely any meet ups so my dresses have been collecting dust.
then like the other day I'm back on it. I'll probably never be active in the comm i'm in now because every meet up is full of itas. But i'm wearing lolita like for the everyday and I love it

Mostly sweet/classic. I wear pastel sweet sometimes. It's still cold where I live and people seem to really dig the BTSSB coats I have.

I'd be cool with that too. I'm just glad I don't have to deal with rude remarks like I imagined I would before I started wearing the fashion. The worst I've gotten was some really poorly-dressed teens might or might not have been laughing at me, which, meh.
I've been wearing it since summer 2019 fwiw.

I'm the anon from >>10356439
and I think goth isn't really that "different" from western goth fancy styles when it comes to most people, whereas sweet/oldschool/classic/etc are quite "new" to their eyes, so it draws more attention. Most people see someone in all black, whether it be vinyl pants and torn fishnets, to velvet fishtail skirts and victorian blouses, to goth lolita shit and assume it's all the same.

I ran into a girl I used to work with a week or two ago. She recommended me a photographer friend because "you should really be keeping high quality photos of what you wear, it's a wonderful thing. It makes me really happy to see you wearing your fashion stuff and doing your thing". We never really got along well the whole time we worked together (personalities clashed a lot), but it meant a lot to me cos most of my former coworkers treated Lolita as my "weird hobby" T_T

Ever since I took up running and began avoiding sweets, I lost the 5 lbs which I had recently gained! I'm so proud of myself and I can't wait to show myself off in cosplay when this is all over. Weighed myself this morning and was 2 lbs under my goal weight. Plus running is a nice way to get out of the house and get my mind off things.
