Seagull School for Newbs

No.9530552 View ViewReplyOriginalReport
Are you new? Do you have basic Questions? Ask them here, please. This is a "containment thread"; which is to say we try to limit the total threads going at once, because there is a small limit to how many threads can exist on a 4chan board. Everytime a new thread is created, it kills a thread; so creating a new thread for each question you have kills entire discussions. Ask questions about any category covered by /cgl/ - that means cosplay and J-fashion. Lolita falls under J-fashion, it's just the most prominent.

Quick Primer:
>What is a "gull" ?
when you say "C. G. L." outloud, it sounds like "seagull". It's almost an onomatopoeia.
>What is an "ita" ?
Ita is a Japanese onomatopoeia for "ow", or "painful to look at". In Japan an "itasha" is a car covered in anime vocoloid or waifu swag decals. An "ita bag" in a tote bag, or other bag with a protective vinyl cover, drowning in anime merch. An "ita" is a Lolita who's coordinate is "painful to look at"

Common examples of newb questions that have been asked TOO MUCH to warrant their own thread, but people would love to help you with here;
>Am I too old for (blank)?
>Are there people who should not do (blank)?
> I am (blank). How can I do (blank) well, as a (blank)?
>Where can I find (blank)?

Anti-Lifestyle Lolita Traits

No.9525918 View ViewReplyLast 50OriginalReport
So we all know the ideal Lifestyle Lolita traits: good manners, feminine hobbies, and a love of tea and sweets. But not everyone can be maidenly all the time. What's your trait or habit that's so antithetical to the idea of a Lifestyler that Misako would piss her petti if she were to find out? Do you really fucking hate that hot leaf water that people call tea? Discretely pick your nose and put your snot in inappropriate places? Share your most anti-Lifestyle traits.... your secrets are safe here!

New thread.
Anyone else get autism when they see a honoka cosplayer with this style wig, ignoring the part that's swept back?

Need help for Lolita Tea Party

No.9529834 View ViewReplyOriginalReport
My mid-size con has attracted a decent number of good Lolita cosplayers and they have a nice community going. We want to throw them a tea party but we really don't know what's expected at an event like that. Are actual tea and cookies a given? Arts and crafts? Guided discussion? Anything can help. Thanks!

Neo lolita / Soft lolita

No.9519439 View ViewReplyLast 50OriginalReport
I think it would be really cool if there was one term for coords that are lolita-inspired and non-lolita coords that use lolita main-pieces. Or a style with the same aesthetic, feelings and influences of lolitas but no rules. What do you think of these terms and which one would you use?

>Soft lolita
From Misako's book that came out in spring 2014.

>Neo lolita
A term I first heard from RinRin Doll but apparently Kera has been using it a lot.

>Otome kei
Supposedly used to be be a seperate style before lolita, now it seems to be used for any ETC and JM coord in the West.

>Quasi lolita
A couple of girls in my comm use this for their casual lolita/fuck the rules coords but I never see it anywhere else.

>Daily Alamode
Used to be the place to post non-lolita burando coords.

>Casual lolita
Speaks for itself.
