14th-Mar-2017 06:27 am - Cakes & Couture!
So sometime last year there was an annoucement of a Jfashion event with a strong focus on lolita fashion being held in Tampa, Florida. My question is: Have you heard of this event? Are you planning to go? What do you think of the cost of the ticket?

It looks like its going to be a pretty big event for the Florida area. I have friends who are planning to enter the handmade section in the coordination contest. I'm strongly considering it myself.

As I said in my last post I am new to lolita fashion and still waiting for my first dress in the mail and I want to see if anything I already own fits the style. I would like to know it this skirt is usable. I am honestly a little embarressed asking questions like this but I want to learn. In the photo I am wearing a petti underneath the skirt. Any advice given would be a big help and much loved. Thanks very much.

This is the dress. It is an apropriate lenghth on me and has a full skirt so I think a petticoat will fit underneath, I have not tried yet.
Also, I am new to lolita fashoin and I just ordered my first piece from Bodyline. I am trying to see what pieces I already have would be considered loliable.

It’s that time of the month again!  Time for our monthly What’s in the Mail/Haul post.
Haven’t bought anything recently don’t worry we have this first Tuesday of every month!

So, what have you purchased recently?
You can share your most recent haul/what’s in the mail to you here! You are encouraged to come up with a unique and creative way to display your new items!

A little late, a month late. Recently I finished putting my wardrobe in order and now that I'm here why not post it I thought. Well, everything is tucked away, folded inside bags to make better use of the available space, so it's going to take a while. Taking everything out, putting everything back, I went ahead. It doesn't have that many things, but I love them. Also my wardrobe is more or less a testament to FanPlusFriend as you'll see :P

On to my first wardrobe...Collapse )

Here's a review I just wrote about these two skirts from Eat me Ink Me

13th-Feb-2017 10:50 am - Awful Brand Blog?
Hi everyone. I remember a long time ago there was a blog that posted brand items that were really terrible and made fun of them, and lots of people contributed. It was hilarious but I can't remember the name of it. Does anyone know? And is it still around?

Going with the theme this month here's avideo I made of my home.
It hasn't changed much from when it was made to now.

Hi lovelies!

It's already middle of February, so it's about time for my lolita wardrobe post 2017.
This is my very first lolita wardrobe post. I'm wearing lolita since January 2013
but only by now I felt as if my wardrobe was worth posting.
It's a small one but I don't wear lolita every day
and I just love every piece I own.
Hope you enjoy this post!

8th-Feb-2017 11:40 am - Wigs with realistic parts/skin tops
Ladies, I need wig help!!!

For the life of me, I cannot seem to find wigs with realistic parts/skin tops. They might have a teeny tiny, circular "part" or piece of skin on the top, but it's basically pointless. The problem I'm finding is that when a wig doesn't have a part, it gives the look that you kinda have a cone-head or an enoooormooooous forehead. The bangs are just too long and/or bulky. It looks all wrong. And while I try trimming the bangs and pulling the wig forward more, it's just.... Ugh. Nope.

This is the awkward look I'm referring to.

Even many Gabalnara wigs seem to have this problem. Any recommendations?

Haven't done one of these in a while. My wardrobe is a mix of a lot of bodyline, a fair bit of indie brand, and a few brand pieces.

3rd-Feb-2017 08:59 pm - February theme: Lolita room/home
Let's see if we can keep the momentum going!

It's that time of year again to show off your lolita room or home! Feel free to share with the community how you decorated your homer - whether it be every a single sweet themed or a gothic nightmare! Either way, the EGL community looks forward to taking a peek inside your home :)
A new year is good time to change, downsize or exspand your wardrobe.
Whatever it is about refinement or trying something new.
Do you have plan or sticking with a theme?Collapse )
2nd-Feb-2017 02:06 pm - Maiko's wardrobe post 2017!

I hope this isn't too late - I did this in January, I posted it on my personal facebook but didn't think to post here/publicly until just now.
I've been in the fashion for a while but this is the first time I've been bothered to take pictures of my things - enjoy!
