Hi and good evening everyone! I am sick (again) and can't go to school tomorrow. But still, I need to do some stuff for school! Why can't I just rest? D:

Lots of vegetables, water and rest - my Mother.

Take it easy!

Does anyone do metal work here? I've started taking a metals class at my college and was wondering if anyone else did that kind of thing! We're only just beginning, but I really love this class!

I'm not doing anything right now but one day I'd love to learn gold smithery.

When are we gonna get a new layout and February themes? :c

I figured Egl would jump on February and valentines themes! I know I am irl and hoped everyone could share!

Edit: also I'm going to the renesance fair on Saturday! I'm so excited to wear what my boyfriend calls "princess lolita" even though its actually AP's twinkle witch set XP

Just be sure to wear comfy shoes (Wedges or Rocking Horses would be fine, though I wouldn't suggest Tea Parties), and if there's and kind of weather/damp, bring a blanket or towel to sit on. You would not BELIEVE how many people show up in stilhettos and white dresses only to look awful at the end of the day. I hope you have fun!

and I have been waiting at the edge of my seat for the theme swap- I wonder what's taking so long?

I'd love to be friends with anyone who wants more friends; I love seeing all the neat stuff people post! ^_^
4th-Feb-2013 10:00 pm (UTC)
I'm terrified, tomorrow I'm being gassed at the dentist :/
4th-Feb-2013 11:46 pm (UTC)
It'll be alright! Just got to try relax, maybe you could take some calming music?
4th-Feb-2013 10:17 pm (UTC)
yay! new lolita shoes from Chantilly~! but they are a little tight >_<;; but I shall suffer through for lolita!
4th-Feb-2013 11:01 pm (UTC)
Finally getting my a into g and slowly clearing out everything in my lolita wardrobe that I don't absolutely love wearing. Unfortunately I have sentimental attachment to some of the things I don't wear very much which makes it harder. anyone else having this issue when trying to declutter?
4th-Feb-2013 11:20 pm (UTC)
When something like that comes up for me I will usually take a picture of it. It's sentimental for the memories attached to the object not so much the object itself. So taking a picture still allows me to remember it without having to keep it. With other things I'd take a piece. Like cutting a part of a blanket or only having some of the ribbon, though if you plan on reselling the dresses you might not be able to do that.

Hi everyone !
To all of you Pullip/Dal/Blythe lovers, do you know anybody who's good for doing their makeover and that I could commission for doing my Dal's one for cheap ? I tried to do it myself and I almost ruined all her face, so now, I'd rather let somebody who's good at it doing it.
I know a girl who does the most beautiful BJD makeover in the world (with professional stuff), but her fees are TOO expensive (and yet her commission agenda is always full).

I'm going to buy a new camera next week. I've saved up for a month now for it and I'm excited. It cost about the same as a when I first saw the price I think Wow this is expensive, even though the same price for a dress I would think would be okay. Lolita makes prices seem odd in my head.

Anyway I'm going to get Nikon COOLPIX P510 16.1 MP CMOS Digital Camera with 42x Zoom. Anyone else have it?
5th-Feb-2013 08:07 pm (UTC)
My last Nikon (it was a COOLPIX too, but not the same one as what you're looking at) and it treated me fine as an amateur but it broke after a few months. :C I'm much happier with my Casio that I got a couple years ago.
4th-Feb-2013 11:18 pm (UTC)
I found the most adorable mint Lolita appropriate nightgown at my job. Paired with this frilly pink robe. They are both made of the same material, but different brands.
So cute and frilly~

I'm going to see Phantom of the Opera on Broadway at 8 pm tonight! I'm super excited. Makes me wish I had brought my Masquerade Theater OP with me to grad school, but I'll settle for a an elegant kuro look with my Chess Story Princess blouse + IW chiffon JSK.

I only wish I could have snagged Lion King tickets during Broadway week, too, but they sold out so fast! Anyone else going to see a play soon?

I'm a week+ into my first placement student teaching :D I love it! I'm working my way up to wearing a couple Lolita pieces into the classroom, these kids are great and very respectful so I know they won't get anything ruined on purpose. I am in a super amazing charter school, as well! Is anyone else embarking upon new endeavors in their education?
4th-Feb-2013 11:47 pm (UTC)
I did my student teaching two years ago and I still remember it fondly. (I did third grade and kindergarten) Yet one I have better memories of the other. It really depends on the teacher/school the experience you get. I'm glad your's is working out.

Hey has anyone had any experience with 'Sweet Soul Shop'

They seem to mostly stock Gyaru products but have a few loliable items at worthwhile prices. Plus for me they're right across the ditch so the shipping won't be astrnomical.

Hello Everyone! : )
I found this lolita snake picture last night and thought it was too crazy not to post.
Anyone know what the writing says?

Edited at 2013-02-05 12:38 am (UTC)
5th-Feb-2013 01:09 am (UTC)
That is crazy... I can see some of the kanji
But I'm afraid I don't know what it means.
5th-Feb-2013 01:13 am (UTC)
I got a parcel slip in the mail yesterday... one of the two things I'm waiting on from comm_sales...
Can't wait to see what it is tonight!

Also there's a big Arts Festival in Perth, Australia at the moment and so some of the Lolitas are going to go up and take pictures. Should look good!'s-On/Event/Scattered-Light-

I just got my first Bodyline purchase today! I'm so happy!

I wrote and posted a review to my LJ if anyone is interested. :)
I know there are tonnes out there but I find the more reviews the better! :'D
5th-Feb-2013 02:09 pm (UTC)
Especially considering there were marks on your things; that's rather concerning... I think there was a bodyline review about a bear and balloon dress recently where it had a black mark on it...
5th-Feb-2013 01:37 am (UTC)
My IW order has fallen in customs Dx
I'll have to pay around 150€ T___T
I'm starting to think that it's going to be cheaper to buy through a SS and tell them to mark down the real price
5th-Feb-2013 01:58 am (UTC)
FORWARDING SERVICE! Cheaper than a SS if you're just looking for someone to mark down the value. =3
5th-Feb-2013 02:08 am (UTC)
anyone has ideas for coordinating a black Marchen Ribbon?
I wasn't really lucky with tumblr today~
6th-Feb-2013 02:05 am (UTC)
With pink :)
5th-Feb-2013 02:44 am (UTC)
I finally was able to find 2 Bodyline shoes secondhand from the comm sales, one in brown and one in pink. Ironically enough for the pink, I can use it for a future cosplay! I hate having big feet.... *sigh* But I also am now penpals with the seller. XD
5th-Feb-2013 04:34 am (UTC)
(1) I love it when the penpal thing happens. Buying and selling lolita is such a strangely good way of making friends.

(2) My feet are big too. ;_; They are so big that I've had guys saying that they feel less masculine when they find out (eh). Apart from custom-made things and imports, only Bodyline has lolita shoes that fit me.

So, doing my taxes is fun ^^'' haha, but really, filling them out is sooo annoying!!
5th-Feb-2013 03:03 am (UTC)
My taxes this year are awful. I need to sit down for like a week to get them done. ;_;

I'm going to be going to Japan with my Japanese class for two weeks this summer! I'm so excited, I can't wait to go. I'm trying to save up so that I can have a shopping spree when I go!
5th-Feb-2013 04:33 am (UTC)
That sounds lovely! Do you know where you are going? Tokyo? Or another big city?

Osaka is actually my favorite city; it doesn't have all the big shops like Tokyo, but it has the friendliest people and the best food. I hope you get to try all the awesome food while you're there!
5th-Feb-2013 05:03 am (UTC)
Not Lolita, but AWESOME!!!

I'm taking pre-requisite courses for an Occupational Therapy graduate program. I did TERRIBLY in Anatomy and Physiology I last semester and am REPEATING it for a better grade while taking AP II with the toughest professor on campus.

I got my first quiz back today, 13 out of 15 on Cardiac anatomy. I squealed with joy. Thankfully other students from Dr. K's AP I class "knew the pain". I feel sorry for the people who took AP I with another professor. They got the SHOCK of their lives.

Also, I was more hands on and braver in lab today. Dissection... I'll spare you the details.

Sled hockey this weekend was epic with the team I coach kids for playing against a team from Albany. I got to see some friends and FINALLY have someone who makes me look "small". He only had to be 6'4"-6'5" and built like a "Brick Sh!thouse" to do it! ;)
5th-Feb-2013 05:27 am (UTC)
Dissection's not gross until you get to the preserved bowel contents. Now that is disgusting.
5th-Feb-2013 06:49 am (UTC)
I am wondering when my package of cd japan will arrive, I got the whole Utena Soundtrack and a Kalafina cd and I really want to hear them now! D: I was horribly tempted to buy a parasol... but it would make hell with the package and I was running out of money :(
5th-Feb-2013 09:59 am (UTC)
Anyone dressing in lolia for chinese new year, i 'm considering it. I think it would be quite awesome is someone did a good qi lolita coord=)
5th-Feb-2013 02:30 pm (UTC)
hmm, I did that qi loli thing two years ago at a tea party, the new year is always a great excuse (since everyone's more dressed up than usual). Unless you have very conservative relatives, why not try it out?
5th-Feb-2013 03:42 pm (UTC)
I got a raise and an increase in my bonus at work! Now Im having a hard time deciding if all of that should go into my savings (which I don't touch) or if I should spend some of it on lolita ;;
5th-Feb-2013 07:03 pm (UTC)
put most away and get yourself something small!
