To start off, I think this might become a thing; Scallopets over OPs. It's probably been done before, but the idea could really expand a lot of people's wardrobe options. It also brings up the issue of print-on-print in Lolita fashion... Is that a thing? Will be come a thing? Fashion brand Hei Hei has been doing a lot of plaid-on-plaid in otome-type cuts."

Here's the first "no-fun-allowed" commenter. 2010 OTT pastel vomit fluffy sugar bows-on-bows is my favourite era, and I'm waiting for AP to come back with sweet dresses in the same cuts and fabrics as older pieces like Candy Treat and Sugary Carnival.

My predictions:

- AP releases a lot of prints with colours that don't match 99% of people's wardrobes that fall somewhere between the sweet and classic range. The colours are too muted for true sweet and the prints are too cutesy for true classic.

- Another Holy Lantern cut.

- Boleros and caplets get a resurgence.

- Menhera starts showing up in western brands in a poorly done fashion similar to how fairy kei has.

- Uchuu kei becomes the next big kei trend and Listen Flavor releases a whole line of spacebunnies.

- People finally let larme die."

Print on print is when you wear two unrelated prints together. They might be different colors, or the same color but the print is different (dots x stripes). And... In most causes I don't like it either. But I'm just starting to wonder where AP will go at this point.

Generally, I predict more sweet all-over too busy prints from AP. Baby will stick with muted prints, and maybe put out another painting themed coord again. MMM will continue to go down in quality. IW/Meta will be more of the same. Taobao will general gain in popularity, despite the continuing trade war.

Honey Cake Re-release

At least one TV-aired documentary that is focused on the 'living doll' thing

At least 4 more qi lolita dresses out of japan (Meta & AP mostly)

At least 2 questionable collaborations with Anime brands, probably Meta and BTSSB. I predict yellow. Unsure.

"I still wear and buy “Larme brands,” but I have little desire to post about it online. It’s true that’s there’s just not as much to talk about when a fashion doesn’t have strict rules, and I’ve never felt a sense of community like people do with lolita.

Larme really doesn’t have the whole lifestyle thing that lolita does with tea parties and meet ups. I know there were meetups in the past for Larme but really I don’t know what I would have in common with those people other than our clothing being a little more extra. I don’t know, I’ve never been to a lolita meetup, but it just seems like there would be more to do or talk about than a Larme one.

"I predict.... a relaxing of the rules in Asia leading to much bickering and controversy on Rufflechat. More and more shorter skirts, longer skirts, off the shoulder blouses, dresses that lack a lolita silhouette. Fewer border prints. Unnatural hair colors and dramatic makeup will become increasingly popular in Japan and China, and natural hair colors will continue to dominate in the West. Ultimately these factors will lead to some sort of stylistic rift. Perhaps we will get "old old school" and "new old school" and "new new school", but hopefully the nomenclature will be better than that.

Lolita (in general) will go more and more the way that goth has gone, with greater popularity in mass media and a more generic, cheaper, accessible incarnation that will lead many people to leave out of annoyance and disgust ("don't confuse ME with THEM" sort of thing). Hot Topic will have a section marked "Lolita" which will include t-shirts with pictures of Mana and a Mana Halloween costume. They will license Novala's lolita athleisure line as well.

There will be some sort of massive sissy smackdown on social media that dwarfs previous efforts. New "sissy lolita" comms will spring up and declare it is a valid substyle.

Taobao will give us many prints with pigs."

Could this be Amino? I think for the most part people here think it attracts itas, lolitas-at-heart, and other undesirables but I started lurking on the Lolita Amino a few days ago when someone said people were posting their wardrobes there and it kind of has a similar vibe... I've seen people make posts about their ootd, what they got in the mail, the recent meet they had, etc. and it feels a little more substantial than CoF or Instagram but without dealing with the broken mess that was Tumblr. You're not required to use your real name like you are on FB and you can actually look at posts chronologically (a dying feature these days) but you can still like posts, if you like that more modern social media thing.
Some good lolitas post on there so it's not like the entire userbase is shit... Is there something I'm missing? Why haven't more people made the switch? This seems like the kind of thing people have been wishing for but it doesn't seem to be catching on for some reason."

Why not? I get that hating reddit is a meme but it's easily searchable and things get archived automatically, you can make new accounts very easily and don't need to have your name visible, downvoting means that it can self moderate to an extent to get rid of absolute shit..."

Basically, a lot of it depends on the mods being good. From my experience, a good way to encourage activity would be to post releases, for mods to pin weekly free for all threads, monthly meet report threads, and sale threads where people can comment the links to their LM listings. Personally, I would also like to see a monthly "random lolita pics" thread where people could post all those silly pics they take with their comm or friends but don't think are appropriate for Instagram or CoF. It would also be cool if people posted threads discussing Lolita Media or made art. Things like that. It's a lot like running an LJ comm. Having a cute layout helps too. If we wanted to have a separate coord focused sub like daily_lolita or CoF, a mod could set the sub to display on default from newest post rather than most up voted coord to create a less popularity-focused experience.
The other issue with activity would be to promote it. Obviously promoting it here would be pretty easy with just posting it every now and then in relevant threads, links could also be dropped in the major Facebook groups, and the creators could even make a Lolita secret to catch the oldfags who still look at that.
The main issue with having a good and active subreddit is that it requires good, dedicated mods and a user base who believes in it enough that they actually keep posting in it."

I'm not sure if the app has broad enough appeal to it. There ARE some lolitas who just aren't into weeby shit at all and I think Amino comes off as like....juvenile, first off, and then like a congregation for weeb and nerd communities.

That said, I think lolita amino kinda has two sides to it: the main part with all the posts and stuff seems to be fine for the most part (seems like it's gotten better over the past couple years) but the chatrooms are still god awful. I'm not sure if it's just the medium or what but almost all the chatrooms are filled with the dumbest most ita people you can imagine. There's two groups for my area and neither of them seem to have figured out that there's a giant comm of us already, if only they took literally ten seconds to type "[city name] + lolita" into facebook. I think its possible that Amino could be a viable community for lolitas but I don't know if it can become a main community that everyone would switch over to. I think if Amino could have more broad appeal and again, lose the juvenile image it has (honestly it just feels like quizilla if anyone remembers that site), then we could start thinking about it as a potential viable option."

Yep, they did. It also was meant to have a closet sharing function, wish I could remember the URL.

But I get the feeling that any such platform, or even migrating to another platform like Reddit or amino, just isn't going to happen until Facebook and Vkontakte bite the dust. It's too easy to just use those two where everyone else is and to come on cgl for anon bitchery, rather than to actually invest in making a new place work. Even new places that have done an ok job at catching on like discord still struggle to capture more than a tiny subset of the lolita community"

"what are y'alls ideal features for a platform aimed at lolitas? don't mean to hijack the predictions thread but since we're discussing it now

it's a pipe dream idea for a passion project but i'm working on my compsci degree and have web dev and IT friends who are passionate about lolita too. it's very feasible, but i have a feeling communities on pre-established platforms would be more successful since they're familiar... thoughts?"

Like fb with the ability to create and subscribe to groups for area specific stuff, with mods from that area, and maybe a wardrobe function similar or affiliated with lolibrary and LM where you can search and save items, plus add items to your wardrobe, wishlist, and show when sales for that particular item are listed.

It’s a big project, probably an unrealistic pipe dream but...when you dream you should dream big I guess."

going even further into my unrealistic pipedream, i think that if this were to ever happen i would need to collaborate somewhat closely with the developers of LM and lolibrary to integrate their features

it'd be a behemoth task, but when broken down into smaller bits it may be possible to pursue with a small team. my gears are a-spinnin. thanks for the ideas!"

speaking as someone who's lolita website went under after going several hundred dollars into debt; Do it but Do it at your own risk. Lolitas are hungry for a platform, for content, but they will not pay for it. Your pages will get archived because they don't want to have to see ads. Again, not saying don't do it, just don't do it expecting it will pay for it's server cost."

Even if you make a nice platform, a huge issue you're going to run into is that no matter how nice a platform you make, unless you advertise it hard on Facebook/Vkontakte/Instagram/Twitter/Amino/etc you will be fighting an uphill battle to get people to migrate.

But if you do make it, please remember to include community and maybe event planning tools!"

can't say, sorry. basically we needed the server we had for the amount of traffic we were getting but we never seemed to make back much through ads. we bounced between the black and the red and then we just started losing at some point and never bounced back. people would tell me to my face that they liked what was being done, but then would comment that maybe we should take those ugly banner ads down. Just, all I'm trying to say is that the lolita community is great to collaborate with, work with but they are not interested in funding any kind of a serious operation."
