Welcome to the EGL Free for All!

gif Pictures, Images and Photos

Please take this as an opportunity to get to know your fellow EGL members outside of lolita. You can post WHATEVER you fancy!

Do bear the following rules in mind:
1) ALL rules of EGL still apply! Be courteous and polite. No flamming/spamming/trolling, etc.
2) Keep it P-G. Remember that there are minors here!
3) Max of 5 images per post, please. And please keep them to a reasonable size!
4) If you have any questions, comments, or concerns, please reply to the first comment in this post.

And a couple of reminders:
-The EGL Free for All will be every Monday and Friday. Twice a week, twice the fun!
-Monday's FFAs are for lolitas outside of the USA, thus the posting time for Monday's FFA is different from Friday's FFA
-The EGL Friending Meme is the first Friday of every month!
-also a gentle reminder: everyone who participates in the FFA are responsible for their own posts. We do not monitor or police the posts in this thread. That said, we'd like to encourage everyone to refrain from posting illegal materials, such as movie streaming or file sharing. Livejournal is not a suitable place for those things. Thanks!

Current FFA volunteers:
aonele (USA)
deleciel (USA)
stupsy (Germany)
roozumari (UK)
Feel free to PM us with questions!

I'm searching for a partner! If you're interested in helping out and have time to post the FFA on Fridays 8pm european central time, please drop me a message :)

Starter topic:

Whether you're in the U.S. or elsewhere in the world, share us what you're thankful for.

Aw what a cute starter,

hmmm, I'm thankful for my wonderful and really supportive family who put up with me xD and for my boyfriend (and bestfriend), who's probably the most positive person I know and makes me happier everyday.

Lol, that was mushy.

Due to some crazy/lucky event, I'm going to be in Toyko from December 22th-24th (I have a really long stopover). What do?
I going to shop, but else should I do?

As far as I've heard, there are usually in-store sales that go on and the stuff on sale/clearance are way cheaper than the online ones. I also heard that sushi is very difficult to get, but ramen joints are rampant; apparently different neighborhoods have their own unique ramen recipes (aka: not your average instant noodle cups).

Going to hardcore practice my driving/parking this weekend so I can get my licence asap. I am waaaay to old to not have my licence, I just really really dislike driving so I have to force myself to practice @__@ is there anyone else like this?
17th-Nov-2012 05:55 am (UTC)
I got my learners licence pretty early, at age 16 (legal age in New Zealand), and was onto my proper licence a few years after that. My boyfriend is now 25, and he still hasnt got his proper licence. I have to drive hime everywhere :P

It's not my style, but if you like it, know that your wardrobe basics and accessories can go well with it, know that you can fit in it, believe that you can wear it often, and are sure that you have enough money for it with money left over for important stuff like rent, then I don't see why not.

This boy I like saw a picture of me wearing a loli outfit and he was like "You look kinda like Kiki's delivery service... It's so cute." :3 It made me happy, haha. I thought the loli clothes would be a boy repellant. >.

I live in a flat with 6 guys, and they all think I look really cute in lolita. One of them is my boyfriend, so I supose thats a good thing :) I've started wearing classic and they recon I look like a victorian ghost, which I supose is a compliment :)

Is anyone else here taking the Japanese Language Proficiency Test in a couple of weeks? I know it's supposed to be held at the same time over the world, but maybe it's still a long shot...
17th-Nov-2012 11:20 am (UTC)
I am.
I'm going to be half crazed with jet lag through. I arrive home less than 12 hours before the test. It's going to be a true test in proficiency- if I can function sleep deprived then day to day stuff should be a breeze!

Good luck!

Wore very toned down Queen's Coach and an ivory blazer to the big company meeting - was asked repeatedly why I did not even have a petticoat on.

My coworkers know what to expect now, no fooling them!! :P

Anyone else sick?

I am very thankful for student insurance and anti-biotics

I got very sick during the first half of my semester (man, dorms are just large petri dishes). I'm fine now which is when a chunk of people have mono or what-have-you, but the weird thing is, when I go home on weekends, I seem to have similar symptoms from when I originally got sick and I think it's because my folks tend to leave the heat off (it's ridiculously hot in most buildings at my campus), so I'm not used to it yet.

I hope you get better soon!

so I was saving up to buy a dress...then decided against it. I have so many dresses and it just seems like I've been spending too much on clothes lately....So....I filled my other hobby. Jrock! Go bought Kiyoharu, Kaya, Plastic Tree, and even an old Art Cube cd and I still have money left over. I feel rich instead of thinking oh I need just 200 more.

Anyone else saved up for something only to realize you didn't really need/want it anymore?
17th-Nov-2012 06:03 pm (UTC)
I tend to do that with new releases I love (especially the ones that arent popular). I keep thinking "You should buy it! Buy it!" but I hold off torturing myself. Its always nice to find it in a few months half price or something. Then I feel rewarded for not buying everything as a knee jerk reaction.

New CDs are always so great though! It brings pep to everything you do while listening :)

I bought a btssb dress a while back, to find out it didn't suit me.. But I still haven't managed to sell it because it's not a popular dress at all which is awful for my bank!

Anyone else had this kind of problem?
18th-Nov-2012 12:04 pm (UTC)
is it NWT?
I think BtSSB usually doesnt leave tags on the items
so its harder to get back the full amount

I dont trust BtSSBs quality
The first purchase i made with them was a blouse and the
waist ties in the back ripped out when i tried it on, not cool

hm, if i was you i would perhaps think about trading it if selling it
is more difficult
17th-Nov-2012 06:01 pm (UTC)
The chargeback thing (which may be a misunderstanding so I hope that gets worked out)
and I received a disgustingly stained dress the other day and the seller is taking zero responsibility for it.
17th-Nov-2012 10:55 pm (UTC)
Oh gross! I'm sorry you're dealing with that!
17th-Nov-2012 06:32 pm (UTC)
Thinking of selling stuff at a horror convention (Monster Madness in Cherry Hill). Anyone go to monster cons? I was thinking of making some guro stuff, nurse hats, ect....but the table is a bit pricey! Any ideas? Help a lady out!

Dying dying DYING. So, I have my mom $80 so I could use her card so I could preorder a game about 2 1/2 months ago... So they finally billed her card, and for some reason it's denied. She's not above her limit or anything, but it's just... Denied... She hasn't had any problems with it, and she used it today. So of course I have to ask my dad to use his credit card, and he's mumbling and grumbling. But I mean, I already paid my mom the $80 and I've been looking forward to this game for months and I'm dying. His card better be accepted and it better not be too late... If I lose the preorder on this game I might just roll up in a ball and cry for a day or two OTL Since it was a premium edition and I've been waiting for a year for it to be released for preorder... (Persona 4 The Golden: Solid Gold Edition, for those wondering)

SO... Has anyone else ever had really funky things happen with their credit card for no reason?
