EGL Friday Free for All!

Welcome to the EGL Free for All!

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! (Which is not today! I checked. Twice. I promise.__. )

  • 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:
deleciel (USA)
stupsy (Germany)
rainedragon (USA)
roozumari (UK)
Feel free to PM us with questions!

I've been sort of wondering lately what kinds of things/places people would like to see reviews of on egl? I've got a bunch of reviews half-done that I plan on posting to my blog, but I wasn't really sure what things were worth posting to EGL instead (or as well)?
25th-Jan-2013 11:57 pm (UTC)
Everrrrrything! Or at least you can link them all in a big post? I like indie brand reviews, or obscure webshop reviews. Brand reviews can also be engaging if someone had an unusual experience (positive or negative).

Kyary Pamyu Pamyu tickets came out today. Anyone else going to the NYC concert? I'm not sure if I should wear Lolita or not lol!

I *really* want to go. ~_~;;;

So MM is re-releasing some of their things again. (if they get enough orders) Both are something I have dreamed of having since I ever first saw lolita. I know I've seen one as a replica on a few sites, so I'm not nearly as dying for it as I am for the second OP they are doing. Carlotta dress.

But I'm about 2 inches too big, for it to even fit very tightly and uncomfortably.

I feel like crying.
25th-Jan-2013 10:49 pm (UTC)
T____T i'm such a sucker for MM too. maybe take it to a tailor and see if they can make it fit?

It looks like IW is in the process of putting up a new series that's rather AP-esque?

What do people think of their take on a melting chocolate theme?
25th-Jan-2013 10:39 pm (UTC)
I like IW's version better. AP's was very sweet while this one is more Sweet-Classic.

It's snowing where I am. While it's all pretty, I work tomorrow AND I am playing Lazer Tag with my friends after school so.... @-@

Why do you have such bad timing snow?
25th-Jan-2013 10:42 pm (UTC)
Too much snow here! It won't melt faster. =(
I can't wait until Spring, to be fair.

I don't know if anybody watches glee, but one of the girls in the "Adam apple's" singing group was a lolita!!!!!!!!
25th-Jan-2013 11:41 pm (UTC)
There's a post about it a few posts down. :D Go check it out.
25th-Jan-2013 11:42 pm (UTC)
Anyone going to Sakura-con this march? :D
26th-Jan-2013 12:45 am (UTC)
I'm still debating. I'm definitely going to Emerald City Comicon, and I don't know if I want to do 2 cons in the same month (especially on a grad student budget). Buuut, I do live here, so I might give in.

I bought a cute fake fireplace/heater thing for my tiny apartment BUT when I opened the box today as if started to snow I found that they didn't include legs in the box! Customer service is sending them out but for now its torture staring at the nonworking heater, haha.

Has anyone bought something fun/nonlolita recently?
25th-Jan-2013 11:58 pm (UTC)
I bought a cute wallet! XXD

The month is almost over and I'm still working on my wardrobe post. I'm almost too worn out from working on it for 4 weeks to finish it, but then again, I've already spent 4 FREAKING WEEKS WORKING ON IT!

I've taken over 100 pictures and I haven't even done any accessories yet...and I've already decided I'm not going to bother with my blouses/cut-sews (there will be a shoddy picture of the corner of my closet where I pile them instead). I'm regretting my decision to try for a full inventory of my wardrobe now.

Problems of the first world lolita... -_-;;;

Anyone else still working on their wardrobe post?
26th-Jan-2013 01:27 am (UTC)
I gave up because I got bored and settled for making wardrobe post banners for all my friends. ^_^;; But hey, doesn't 100 pictures mean you have a large and varied collection? This is definitely going to be worth seeing.
26th-Jan-2013 12:38 am (UTC)
omg, the snow is so pretty~! O.O
i want to do nothing but throw on my lolita, go outside, and skip around in the snow like a crazy person! (But i can't... 1: my mom doesn't really like when i wear lolita around the neighborhood; and 2: i don't want to ruin my dresses!) Anyone else having these wonderful difficulties? :9
26th-Jan-2013 01:38 am (UTC)
I'm the opposite right now. Toronto's been in the middle of a cold snap (although any other year, it would just be typical winter), so I want to do nothing other than put on a thick sweater and cuddle under a blanket with my cat. I'm greatly looking forward to the weather going back to hovering around freezing so it's warm enough that I feel like wearing lolita out again. *_*

I've been nearly triple paying down my student loans (since I've finally got a job that pays decently) and next month it get into the 14,000 mark. So so happy to see that number shrink if only it was gone..
26th-Jan-2013 02:36 am (UTC)
Claps to you for using a pay jump for responsible things :) Someday it will be gone!
26th-Jan-2013 01:35 am (UTC)
My Bodyline dress arrived! >w< It looks fantastic on me! Now to wait for the petticoat from Vivcore... I'm so excited! Ee!
26th-Jan-2013 02:32 am (UTC)
Ooh, which one? :)
26th-Jan-2013 02:10 am (UTC)
I'm going around buying all the blouses in sight! Someone stop me!! D:
26th-Jan-2013 03:03 am (UTC)

After all, if you buy all the blouses there will be none for me! ;P

26th-Jan-2013 11:42 am (UTC)

26th-Jan-2013 03:54 am (UTC)
It's been one week since I placed an order with Innocent World and I still haven't gotten my payment details yet. And now one of the things I ordered is sold out, I'm getting worried.
26th-Jan-2013 05:16 am (UTC)
It's been two weeks since I placed my order, no reply yet. 37 days since I was put on the waiting list for the library skirt and they asked if they could hold my other items and ship them all together. I'm hoping they email me soon :( I want to pay and have the things they have together sent to me.... :(
26th-Jan-2013 07:44 am (UTC)
Anyone is going to Kyary in Brussels?
27th-Jan-2013 01:16 am (UTC)
