Did MMM make a perfume atomizer as a novelty item? A seller on Frill posted a bunch of unopened novelties 15000+ and wrote that he "thought is was ___" but didnt want to unopen the ribbon for all of the items. One pastic cyclinder was described as an atomizer but I haven't found that they exist. He has since deleted all of the listing except for a mirror and its haunting me.

Superbuy shipping is a bit confusing to me. Obviously everything gets sent individually to their warehouse but I guess you choose when to have them ship it out?

Other than the obvious elements (e.g. crowns and sceptres) what design elements make a lolita outfit look 'regal' to you? I'm hoping to design a dress for a royal themed high tea but I'd settle for just adding some accessories or alterations to a premade main piece.

An OTT dress. If your main piece isn't fancy enough already, you can try adding a blouse with large princess sleeves, a big underskirt to make the skirt bigger, and then depending on the print/design, an overdress, overskirt or peplum to add more detail on top as well.

Between an OTT dress, a crown and good grooming (suitable hairstyle, manicure), that's usually enough to carry the theme. If that and the scepter still isn't enough, you can try adding a cape, either with a stiff neck or trimmed with fur (avoid the ones with hoods, they look too traveller-like rather than royal).

Or. You could totally go the IW route and wear one of the their crown dresses (Charles, Felicia, Grazia, etc) along with their crown handbag. AP has Wonder Queen series, and AatP has Red Queen. If you're making your own, one of the OnS has a Red Queen coord that's pretty recogniseable. (There's also a Snow Queen in a different volume, but it's much less recogniseable than the red queen for some reason).

not bait, just imo there's just a bit too much coincidence of where Russian literature intersects with lolita fashion for it not to be connected. I could write a novel on this, and in fact, a PhD candidate did.

>>10470336
I agree here. Try to pick a main piece that's on a nice material as well. You can't go wrong with a nice jacquard or nice velvet as long as the color palette is tasteful and your sewing is up to snuff with a luxe look. Depending on the color scheme you're going for, a dress like rose museum or something similar might be a good choice. If you're on a budget, some of Krad Lanretes dresses might be a bit more affordable.

It’s an interesting read and I think it has the most thorough examination of the origins. Not light reading, but I think it’s pretty clear that Lolita fashion is not a coincidence in neither its aesthetic nor its title but that the novel has a very different interpretation in Japanese society and it’s definitely worth the look.

Exactly. There’s always this weird low key racism of oh they couldn’t possibly have known! The poor ignorant Japanese with their janglish mishaps!

Lolita by Nabukov was extremely well received in Japan and was/is viewed even as being fairly progressive for its depiction of female sexuality. You really can’t bring western judgements into a culture that didn’t criminalize cp possession until 2012, currently has an age of consent of 13, and generally views female sexuality as a greater offense than male predators. I always wonder where these people think the term lolicon comes from...

>> No.10470720

>>10470578

The age of consent at 13 thing is for people under 18, presumably so teenagers aren't criminals for having sex with their boyfriends and girlfriends.

You're generally correct though the Japanese are far more aware of their overt sexualization of women and younger/underage people than Japanophiles and weebs give them credit for. Lolita in its current form is not supposed to be related to the book but it would not surprise me that Japanese people would choose the name (especially since some people claim that it was men who initially coined the name though that is always up for debate) despite knowing the connection.

Off. 4cm is really bad. If you look at IW you'll notice the difference between shoulder widths for S, M, L blouses are only 1cm apart. So we're talking about you being XL size fitting into an S size blouse.

If you're really skelly thin you can attempt it, but if all your other measurements are off, you'll probably suffer. The shoulder width is going to try and pull the sleeves across your shoulders even when you have your arms down.

The spare button might be in a plastic bag on the same tie as the paper price tag, if you still have that. Some of my Meta came that way.

If you can't find a replacement, I'd just go ahead and replace all of the buttons with a different set that you like, to be honest. Less of a headache trying to find exact button matches.

I’ve relisted an item several times, but I’m not in any hurry to sell it and I guess with the sweet resurgence people are interested but I’ve gotten like 6 messages from people asking literally “what’s the lowest you can accept?”.

Recommendations on where to find a blouse in this color?

>> No.10473292

>>10473279

They have bloodbaths, but typically if a dress sells out in minutes btssb is pretty good about anouncing a second wave, just the delivery date will be later than the first wave. If that sells out as well, keep a hawkeye on their announcements page, sometimes they'll announce they restocked it out of the blue as well.

Only applies if it's a true bloodbath that sells out in minutes, and typically only the colourway that sold out the fastest gets a second wave. So I still wouldn't sit on things if you're after a less popular dress, there's a chance it gets sold out slow enough that it doesn't get a second wave/restock but still sold out faster than you can buy it.

I’m in the US and had my SS (FromJapan) ship a package with items worth over $800 via FedEx and I stupidly checked “mark as gift” to see what would happen. When it got to my local Fedex I received an email that said the description of items weren’t sufficient so I contacted my SS and they said that they needed manufacturers’ names and addresses of all textiles and whether they were knit or woven. So I just used the stores’ addresses and guessed if they were knit or woven. I sent the info back to my SS so they could send it to Fedex. I didn’t hear anything for a week until I checked the tracking and it said the package was going back to the sender.

Its very jarring to see the new FB communities for me because some topics or people get bumped up and nothing is chronological. I also miss the discussion!

I've considered placing an early bid because then *allegedly* the seller couldn't take down the auction or sell it via PM. It basically secured that the bidding would go through. However, there was a recent auction for a milky planet brooch when the seller sold via PM during bidding and then had the buyer bid huge numbers on the auction to stop other bidders from participating. That fucked me up so now I hesitate to place early bids at all.

I highly recommend dyeing your own blouse. Buy a pretty one in cotton with limited synthetic lace and use a formula from the Rit website:
https://www.ritdye.com/color-formulas/?type=197&hue=0&collection=0&collaboration=0

Its addictive and easier than you may think if you follow the directions exactly. You can dye some socks or a beret at the same time and make a full coordinate!

Just a heads up for anyone who hasn’t done this before: Even items that are marked as 100% cotton sometimes use synthetic thread which stays white. Proceed with caution.

Are there any mentionable deaths in the lolita community?

Same; that's why I do it but sometimes things still don't work out.

Tbh though if a seller accepts offers and no one has bid, the seller may just accept the first reasonable offer so people who want it badly should at least place a small bid early. I've had sellers let me purchase for the starting bid price as long as I paid immediately because no one bid in the first few hours of the auction being listed. A seller can't know people are interested unless they bid. Number of watchers on a listing means nothing.

Acid's a relatively safe drug when taken in a responsible setting, and a lot of those "jumped out of a window" stories implicated multiple other drugs in the victim's system; lsd just gets played up in the news because it's sensational to boomers and gets clicks.

"Drug" is such a huge category comprising everything from painkillers to caffeine to heroin. Lumping them all together is the height of blind stupidity.

"According to a new poll released Monday, 52 percent of Americans over 18 have tried marijuana at some point in their lives. The survey conducted by Yahoo News and Marist Poll found that not only have most adults in the U.S. smoked pot, 44 percent of those who tried it once still use it today.

[...]

Despite marijuana still being federally classified as a dangerous Schedule I drug, on par with heroin, American attitudes toward the drug have changed over time. The Yahoo-Marist poll found that, out of the respondents who have tried pot at some point, 65 percent are parents. In fact, people who are current marijuana users are slightly more likely to be parents, at 51 percent."

Find lolibrary entries for the items you are selling (if not make sure you take measurements and decent photos, either flat on a surface or on a dress form)
Search through past listings through lacemarket to see how much the items you own tend to sell for, adjust price accordingly
Get a rough idea of the shipping costs beforehand

Old schoolers, what A-line petticoats do you use? I guess I'm looking for a bare minimum/low profile poof. I'm thinking of going with a melikestea classy A-line with 3 layers of voile, but I worry it's gonna be too poofy.

Why would you want information on that? If it’s real the snuff video’s just going to come up. Fuck the internet, fuck this species.

I hand wash it and then blowdry it. no chance of rust if the metal isn't wet for very long.

lo娘 according to the anon who posted about it, but like I said, nothing came up when I searched. Maybe you'll have more luck than me though.

Calm down. It's not that I want to watch her die. I was just trying to answer OP's question (they wanted to know if any lolitas have died, I heard that someone did, but I can't tell if it's true or not since I have no official source other than that one post on cgl).

Call me stupid but all I can find on their Taobao page is the hoopskirt and two long OTT pettis. But Devilinspired and Lolitawardrobe have other petticoats from Classical Puppets, how is that possible? Is that stock that they bought ato resell and is just discontinued from Classical Puppets or something?

What is the best way to handle a payment plan when selling through LM?

A PayPal invoice that allows partial payment with an initial minimum that is your agreed upon down payment. And tell them the down payment is non refundable to make sure they're serious.

Why do so many fatty-chans willingly give themselves boobloaf even though its a well known phenomenon?

I know taobao is mostly hated on cgl but can I get an honest opinion on Diamond Honey. From somebody who has actually purchased a dress from them. I know it's not going to be ~burando~ tier but is it okay?
I find some of their prints super cute but if the quality is terrible then I'll just save up for something better.

I've bought one of their gingham dresses, a blouse and their printed socks. The dress was really poorly made with really weird choices about the construction, and way to short to wear as lolita.
The blouse was okay construction but the lace wasn't up to brand standards, and I really liked the socks because the print was decently clear and they were stretchy and comfortable.

If youre into gothic why not consider MMM underskirts? Beautiful lace and very soft, light, and comfortable to layer
