What dream meets do you wish your comm held?

Mine would be a cocktail hour followed by a private screening of Kamikaze Girls.

Yes!
>>10679312
Laser tag is fine too I guess. Joking aside, imagine going out in shiro lolita and do paintball. See what your dress looks like and compare with others.
>>
>>10679336
>shiro lolita and do paintball
that would actually be fun! Especially since the paint is water based and should wash out, but you'd probably be left with residue. If you chose kawaii color for the paintballs you could get something cool. In general I love doing not-kawaii activities in lolita. It's a fun contrast.
>>
>>10679341
Weird that you call colors and activities kawaii but yea, pastel paint would be pretty cool.

What would you like to see in a lolita subreddit?

>verification process: only lolitas who actually wear the fashion are allowed to view, post, and comment. Go to reddit.com/r/elegantgothiclolita and request to join/message the mods or email me with your Reddit username and a picture of yourself in a coord.
>user flairs to show your preferred substyle
>post flairs: coord, coord help (worn requests go here), news/new release, question, discussion, DIY/handmade, event, drama, review, mail, print (so we can organise and archive picrel type images)
>megathreads for stupid questions and dream dress hunting that will last 6 months before expiring
>a wiki of useful links that won't expire ever

Ideally I'd like to amass a lot of coords and reviews of various brands so that the subreddit can act as an archive of cgl, like warosu if it ever goes down.

>B-but muh poly hc
Ah yes, one slightly accurate example over the decades.

They did not announce the larger sizing until after the first wave of MTOs already had orders and it was 1 cut, 2 colorways in the nastiest poly. Also, the original cotton was selling for a lot on Eastern sites as well, not just the West.

"Ap listened to us" is one of the stupidest things I have ever read on here, but it's not surprising considering the OP was outed as not even being in the fashion.
>>
>>10679330
This comment is exactly why no one should take people seriously on these boards. Everyone acts like they're experts (including OP) until they make a stupid post like this which reveals that they actually don't know much of anything about cgl as a board, or even the basic tools and functions of this site.

>>10679339
Sorry OP.

>>10679329
nta but the archive still sucks to navigate.

Obviously why would I compare it to something unrelated. All Clamp works have stuff like that in fact most shoujo do too. I would argue that more animu contains something you don't like that ones that do not.

This. It’s really easy to criticize but desu for as early as they started producing they really broke a lot of ground for female manga ka. So what if they wrote weird shit, the had a weird audience.

I’m surprised none of the dolls collection cuts sold out. I guess it’s just not really in sync with the sweet trend? I thought for sure it would.
>>
>>10679281
Probably because people only really wanted the accessories and the cut that was store exclusive.
>>
>>10678533
Most people buy assuming they need some space for ease. So yes, it is sizing out of customers by changing the measurements that much. Your assumption is that increasing the high end isn't just increasing the ease for another group of customers.
>>
>>10679321
If you were so far below the old minimum that 2-5cm in a shirred dress with corset lacing and waist ties makes it somehow soooo huge on you, they were never catering to your size to begin with. Being sized out on the small end has nothing to do with the max measurement changes, only the change to the minimum.

Stop larping as an uwu smol bean and take the L. If you don't like that fatties are wearing the same print cause you like the moral superiority of excluding them just say that. It's kinda cringe but say it. I'm like 4'11 and thin and have more issues with length than other sizing from AP so all the pretend petites or ana chan larpers are getting old and sound dumb as fuck. When stuff really doesn't fit just take it to a tailor poorfag.

Newlita here that tried joining my local comm. It seemed cute enough but I'm just not into Facebook and forget it exists. I've probably been removed by now why oh why does facebook of all things have to be the community center for lolita groups?

How has your comm handled the pandemic? Have you started in person meetups or are you still doing zoom calls?

Mine became an instant ghost town back in 2020 and has just recently started doing zoom meetups and small in person events.

Comm is totally dead after covid, no virtual or irl meets. Kind of want to post on the fb group to break the ice since it's less than 50 people but the last post was in february. But, part of me wants to stay a lonelita. The fashion scene where I live is full of ita covidlitas, like the ones that will never ever ever move out of aliexpress, and zoomers that parrot what they hear on tiktok like muh AP fatphobia. And neither will ever try to learn the culture or wear lolita outside of a con. Although, I've looked at the profiles and icons of everyone in my state's specific comm and none of them seem bad? I still have a irrational fear of going to a meet and seeing some bitch with a 20$ aliexpress dress with severe tiktok/twitter brainrot.

Yes, and this IS the stupid questions thread lol. I saw some btssb old school pieces that weren't necessarily popular to my knowledge, more like basic, go up really high in a japanese auction, so I asked. But then I guess the basic black & white oldschool look is popular no matter what the specific pieces are maybe... shrug. Thanks!

>>
>>10679018
Depends. Applique and screenprinted ones certainly do if they’re in decent condition. They also need to be cute. There’s some fugly old school pieces out there.
>>
>>10679083
This. A piece just being old isn't going to cut it. Before there were prints, they would screen print designs onto the border of the fabric. Those are going to be way more valuable than a generic dress, especially if it features some old wonky cuts.

August is basically the beginning of Halloween.

Agreed. Most of us prefer anonymous posting. We don't need another subreddit or facebook group.

If anything, a website/application. But the damn larper that made the subreddit is:
1) a troll
2) crazy
3) definitely a larper
4) an ita
5) definitely also a newfag to the board
6) already has way too much milk spread across 4chan and facebook for any lolita to want to even mess with that
>>
>>10679314
what's worse is they actually went messaging "popular lolitas" to join their shitty subreddit to "personally extend an invitiation."

If that isn't fucking creepy, then I don't know what is.
