This thread is for ouji and aristocrat (aka "boystyle") discussion. "Boystyle" is shorthand for "boystyle lolita" and refers to the masculine counterparts of Japanese lolita and, often, aristocrat fashions. There is a lot of overlap between these styles, and different people use different terms to describe them. We usually just use "ouji" here.

this is a continuation of 5 prior threads, which reached the image cap:
the last thread featured some portraits that use techniques to disorient the viewer, sometimes even to challenge or antagonize the viewer; portraits in which false injuries or writing in or near the subject seem to express an internal wound or convey anti-authoritarian or other subversive feeling; subjects isolated from others or the environment, reflecting on the "outsider" status of alternative fashionistas; generally, the trend of using portraiture to depict common subjective feelings of subversion, defiance, alienation, solitude, dreaming, power, and self-determination among those who wear alternative fashion.
now, i would like to begin this thread with a return to simpler pleasures of color and form. i want to share photographs that use solid backdrops, typically in a studio setting, to create visually striking portraits.00's CosplayNostalgia time!

It seems touhou costumes weren't as easy to come by as I thought. Many sensible options I've come across are literal nobodies, but do ask all dimensions etc.. But alas, them being probably some sweatshop from Vietnam with no reviews it doesn't feel right giving them 100 euros for something that could be anything. I could put some actual money on the line if the quality would reflect it. You know, I apologize for being an absolute beginner in cosplay, which I am. I just really have no idea what I'm doing. How buying new costumes works etc.. At the time DIY is off limits. Except for some simple fixes, so it would have to be store bought.

If you need cosplay help, go to the cosplay help threadJfash Portraits 5i have hoarded many photos of jfashionistas that i think have artistic value beyond the usual coord shot or selfie. i would like to share some. they will include all kinds of Japanese alternative fashion, and subjects may be any age or gender; and they will NOT be images from publications such as KERA, Fruits, etc.; so i hope there will be good inspiration for a variety of seagulls.
this is a continuation of 4 prior threads, which reached the image cap:
>>10284337 >>10293441 >>10300707 >>10305464
the last thread featured some portraits that are taken near graffiti, wherein the text and images of street art help connect alternative fashion with its roots as "street style"; portraits that try to capture or suggest movement, or time passing; using images of shopping or collections/hoards to connect alternative fashion with its material aspects; portraits that occlude part of the subject; black and white portraits; and portraits that show expressive faces without much editorial smoothing.
now, i would like to begin this thread with some portraits that have a disorienting effect. the composition or editing of these photos are purposefully unnatural, uncanny, or hyper-real.Katsucon 2020Another year, another Katsu.

I know many of us liking looking at the dresses and with the current obsession with flexing, you'd think more people would join in lol.
>If you set goals last year, did you achieve them? >Those that have done posts on multiple years, have you noticed any trends? For instance, I went back to look at past years and noticed that when I first started out I bought more dresses during the year because I was just eager to own a lot but ended up selling most of them. This past year I only bought six dresses but they're dresses that I absolutely love and won't be selling any time soon.
