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 flaming/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:
rainedragon (USA)
deleciel (USA)
stupsy (Germany)

Feel free to PM us with questions!

Please post your comments, questions, and/or concerns, here.

p.s.: My apologies for the late posting. My internet is horrendously slow and I had an unexpected guest to look after.

I made dango for the first time...

The taste is not great but it's not my fault, I've been told it's supposed to taste this way...

Yeah, dango's taste is sort of disappointing... but you should try Mitarashi Tofu-Dango(or whatever they're called)!

They taste waaay better, I think! :3

I was really busy with university lately and had no time to log into LJ for more than answering messages concerning my salespost. I really missed looking at all the pretty coordinates etc, which I normally do during my lunch break. But right now we are stuck in our 3D project phase (means having barely two months to create a nice-looking prototype for a 3D game from scratch), and every hour of my day is planned out.
So while I was a little down and tired and tried to somehow think of a design for a mayan fire breathing ornament, I looked at the screen of one of our other artist. And I saw this:

Well, that's some fancy skull you have there! I know it's not the same as looking at aatp's last beautiful releases, but this really lolified my working day... :)

Same here, im April I have a deadline for a 3D short movie, I am in charge of the main characters, we are making a apocalype thingy movie.
I am not even finished with Blendshapes on the first character yet. -_-" Everytime I try do export the normal map from mudbox to maya my comp freezes to death.

Anyone else anticipating the season to finally get warmer and change to spring?
Its too damn cold right now to dress in lolita... around 30 F constantly
i thought about maybe wearing a thermal shirt underneath, but still not enough warmth.
my closet is just not winter-friendly, i think thats the main problem, but maybe lolita just isnt practical when its this cold...
brands need to release more velveteen dresses and thick, heavy coats!!!
19th-Jan-2013 12:55 pm (UTC)
I can't wait for sun and spring... I also really hate snow and cold... :(
I do am still wearing my lolita but I'm really freezing my ass off HAHA...
I have this thermal jacked that keeps me warm... not the prettiest jacked but I don't care... warmth is more important than anything else... I'm happy I'm not the only one not feeling all to happy about this weather... <3

I've decided to buy another Atelier Pierrot dress. It has me thinking though, I usually see more things on Atelier that I like more than Innocent world recently. They, IW, seems to be jumping on the print trend too, which isn't really my style... So it seems I can no longer saw IW is my favorite brand...

anyone else switch what they considered was their favorite brand to something new?
19th-Jan-2013 07:08 pm (UTC)
Yes... for the most part i dislike the upcoming IW releases
The prints are hideous....just downright awful
I dont know if any brand can replace IW despite that, though
I am starting to really like Baby and AatP
Emily Temple Cute i am extremely getting fond of , but that is more otome

Just got back from the doctor's... and they gave me a sheet for all of my vitals, including height, BMI, and weight. Now that I've actually gotten part-way through my statistics course, my reaction to all of my percentiles are, "Seriously, WTF." There is no way I am taller than 19.5% of the population.

On the other hand, I've gained back two of my four lost pounds! :D Thee digit figures, here I come!

(The best part was when the nurse typed in my weight and it turned bright red... and then my doctor didn't even mention it :3)

What exactly is wrong with "Rococo-inspired"? Someone please enlighten me.
19th-Jan-2013 07:34 pm (UTC)
who ever said rococo inspired is wrong?
hell, in kamikaze girls, momoko herself said she wanted to live in the 18th century because she admired
the rococo style and that movie (originality a novel) did a collaboration on the production with one of the notable lolita brands, Baby, the Stars Shine Bright.

I have a cold and while that means no work today, the sleepover I'd been planning with friends for Sunday is shot! ;-;
19th-Jan-2013 09:53 pm (UTC)
Hope you feel better soon! :/

I have come to the realization that I haven't worn Lolita since December. o_o If I keep this up, I might just have to schedule time to wear Lolita! Please tell me this doesn't only happen to me. XD
20th-Jan-2013 01:10 am (UTC)
It happens to me too. Also, it makes me happy to see you post, because I use that sprite in my tumblr layout ^__^

Has anyone tried using a steamer on Dream Fantasy by AP? I'm totally terrified of the print bleeding..
20th-Jan-2013 03:56 am (UTC)
Ok IM a bit scared to wash dream fantasy if it runs, does it ?
19th-Jan-2013 09:04 pm (UTC)
I finally got my package from IW today! Everything fits. So happy.
19th-Jan-2013 09:53 pm (UTC)
What did you get? :)

Wore Lacey shorts the other day...and my boyfriend yells at me to put real clothes on...apparently he thought they were bloomers and thought I was going out in my lolita undies XP
