Penpals? And Canadian Lolis? 
5th-Feb-2013 11:35 am

Hi! sorry you've been seeing my face so often >.<

I did ask a couple years ago about lolitas in Canada, I looked as best I could through the archive, but couldn't find anything recent. Are there still active lolitas in Canada? Maybe some in British Columbia, where I am? I've seen a lot of the communities got moved to facebook, but I didn't see anything for anywhere other than Toronto.

Elsewise, I tried to look for penpal groups and didn't see any! Would anyone be looking for a penpal? I really would love to talk to some of you lovelies, and have someone to talk to about lolita since I have no one here haha. Plus, I have lovely rose stationary I would love to use ^.^

Thanks, and I'm sorry I keep coming up on here aahaha

I can't tell you much about the Canadian lolita groups, but I'd be up for a penpal. Not sure how many others would be, but I think penpals are pretty neat!

There's a community on LJ just for people who are looking for penpals =).
Maybe you could post on it to find some !

There is? Is it a lolita community or just a general penpal community?

Any interest in a penpal from the other side of the country (Quebec)? You can PM me if you're interested!

Hi! I am a Canadian Lolita too. ^-^ Here in Montreal, the community is still active, but most of us moved to Facebook.

Lolita in Edmonton right here~ We've got a tiny little community going now! I want to say BC has quite a few lolis in Vancouver, but I could be wrong.

I'm also in Edmonton! Are you in the Facebook group? :D

There's a master list of lolita communities which should help you locate other lolitas across Canada (under the "Area specific" section)

http://egl.livejournal.com/18644274.html

Many communities have moderated membership and often, most of the activity around organizing meets, etc has moved to facebook, but it's still a good gateway to connecting with lolitas in your area!

I'm a Canadian (new) lolita living in the Greater Toronto Area in Ontario.
I have yet to join the community but I'm really looking forward to meeting other lolitas in my area. :')

Where in the GTA? I'm from Brampton :)

You're in British Columbia? Haha, I am literally as far away from you as Canadian-ly possible. I'm a Newfoundland lolita! We're a small community but we're growing slowly! We even have a meet on saturday :3 We're all on facebook so it'd be a good idea to search your own city for a lolita group - you never know what you'll find.

Southern Albertan lolita here! I'm in Lethbridge but my core group has spread out to Victoria and Whitehorse ;___; Would love to make new friends!

I live in Vancouver! :) I haven't joined the local community yet since I'm working on my wardrobe.. (and because I'm a little shy ;-; they never accepted my request to join on Facebook either.. maybe that'll change once I actually show my face at a meetup xD)
6th-Feb-2013 07:03 pm (UTC)
awwe! I don't even know the name of the group >.< I'm in Nanaimo on Vancouver Island haha

What city are you in? I'm in Edmonton and our community has been decently active lately :)

Where exactly in BC are you located? From what I know, the Vancouver community is rather active. If you live on the island, the largest community would most likely be the Victoria community (where I am,) though it's much slower and we rarely have meetups. Unfortunately Western Canada has a much slimmer lolita population, so it's quite possible if you live in a small town that there might be no comm at all. ): I know that was the case for me before I moved here.

I live in Nanaimo, I know there's no community here haha. I think there was one or two a year ago, but I don't think so anymore. I'd love to come to Victoria for a meet, it would be easier for me than taking a ferry and a cab in Vancouver haha. Or driving over, that's expensive >.

I'm Canadian, but I'm in Edmonton, Alberta, not in BC ><~
I do think it would be cool to try to do a western Canada meet in the spring/summer. Hopefully there'd be enough interest and people actually willing to drive. I dunno how such long-distance meets work ><~
6th-Feb-2013 07:05 pm (UTC)
I'm not sure, but it would be cool! I don't get to leave BC often haha.
I'm going to saskatchewan in July if all goes well, so i'm sure I could make a drive to Edmonton if all the Albie and Saskie lolis would congregate in Edmonton =3

I'm in Vancouver~ My friend from Toronto mentioned that the lolita community on the west coast is a lot less active than the east. I can't say much for Vancouver Island but we generally have meetups around once a month? Most of us are on FB now, actually, I don't think many of us still use LJ as a local community.
17th-Feb-2013 12:04 pm (UTC)
yes there is a Lolita group for victoria on FB. I am hoping to be added to that group soon :) (Im trying to move to Victoria in next couple of years! fingers crossed. Ill be south island though,)
