I'm obsessed with Liz Lisa. I don't know if they're considered gyaru anymore, or if they're more larme? I like hime kaji/casual clothing in general. I have for a long time, and its definitely toned down since 2010-2012+ era. I have one friend IRL into similar J-fashion. I wish I had more friends to talk about it with, especially Liz Lisa. I don't really see active communities as often anymore unless I'm looking in the wrong places. Makeup seems to be more toned down now as well.
A while ago a came across this makeup tutorial. The girl was so cute (she still is), but dresses so basic now… It's sad how korean style is overtaking everything.

I mostly wear himekaji, otome (though I guess otome is more of a "feel"), dolly kei, larme, nanchatte and Menhera IRL. I have a lot of Ank Rouge, Liz Lisa, Predator Rat and stuff from miscellaneous indie brands in my closet at the moment.
I'm honestly into all J-fashion, though. I love looking at old spreads from Fruits, old-school Lolita/GLB pages (and current classic and gothic lolita coords), and older street snaps from Tokyo Fashion. I really want cult party kei, dolly kei and mori to make a resurgence someday.
I don't think J-fashion's necessarily been taken over by K style. I just think people who have been balls-deep into things earlier might be getting older and wanting to tone down (though there's always going to be Junnyan types), and certain publications and brands that used to be running off a more "alt" scene are trying to attract a more "normie" audience for profit in addition (not in replacement). It's just business.
Sadly, the gyaru scene does seem to have died down a lot. It was always sort of susceptible to what's "mainstream" trendy, but it used to have its own twist. Now it's pretty watered down.
i wear romagyaru hime and agejo. full time gyaru. hair, nails, the works. been into it since 2012 and like >>94666
i am sad that girls are changing to such homogenized fashion styles. the flip side of this is that all the clothing i want is suuuper cheap. i regularly buy pieces for $10 USD or less. too bad i'm the only one wearing it anymore.

I love Dolly Kei. I wish I had discovered it before it started to decline in popularity. I really want to visit Grimoire. I wonder if it looks much different nowadays.

thank you for making this thread anon !
(just so you know, if you're in the French J-fash comm there's a thread for it : >>>/ot/221968
, and there's one for the German comm aswell >>>/ot/277915
I'm mostly into fairy kei and decora (as in , what I wear). Discovered J-fashion through one of my friends , who introduced me to Kanon Wakeshima (lolita at the time) and KPP (fairy kei , aomoji kei.)
I love all styles, and I'm looking forward to the day I'll finally buy a lolita dress.
Been recently very interested in the menhera community and the ideas behind it (pic related), but it's sadly misunderstood by people thinking it's like creepy cute
A lot of the stuff on SpreePicky can certainly be incorporated into J-fashion, but most of it is pretty basic by J-fashion standards. So, yeah, weeby shit.
The real issue, IMO, is that they resell stuff from Taobao and mark up the prices. A pair of stockings that goes for $19.99 there is like $7 in reality.

I wear lolita almost daily, mostly classic and sometimes gothic. I've never been really involved in my local community though, since it's just a clothing style I like wearing to me.
My closet is still growing a lot, I've recently been to Japan and got to shop around in the Closet Child stores in Tokyo. It's amazing how much you can get there for cheap.
yes, just download the pics and search by images on aliexpress, they're just resellers>>94803
damn anon, this is so cool, I envy you
what are your dream dresses/skirts ?

Is the official Liz Lisa eBay worth the price? I mean $50~$75 for a shirt seems absurd to me. Shoes, I can understand. But a top or skirt goes for $50 a pop minimum. Is it inflated by a lot? Should I just buy off a shopping service from their website? I haven’t checked the prices of items there (yet)
