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!

Today I participated in my school's "harlem shake" video while wearing lolita. I think we're a bit late to the bandwagon, but it was still pretty fun xD.
22nd-Feb-2013 11:22 pm (UTC)
post the video here, maybe? I'd like to see that

Innocent World just put this Apartment Print up for reserve. What do you all think? It's slowly growing on me, and I like the details... but...
22nd-Feb-2013 10:12 pm (UTC)
I just noticed this myself!
In the color scheme you posted I really love the look of it, but the other colors not so much. I actually start to love it the more I look at it . .

My university thinks that molecuar biosciences belongs to physics... if i would want to study something which goes under the category physics i'd study physics and not molecular biosciences... god i'm pissed cause i don't like physics XDD /rant

Does your university not have a chemistry or biology department?

I have a question, is it odd to have meetups in evening, like after 5pm ish? I seen most people have in the morning or afternoon.
22nd-Feb-2013 10:50 pm (UTC)
I don't think so :)
My only problem with evening meets is that it feels like they tend to revolve around going out to a club or bar at some point, like after dinner, which is not my scene at all.
That and if some girls are driving from out of town it would be more difficult or inconvenient possibly to drive home after dark.

Oh my gosh! my new boss is letting me wear full lolita for our re-opening this saturday! :D

I'm gonna do OTT sweet! ^0^/
23rd-Feb-2013 12:07 am (UTC)

I'm putting real live structure in a structured jacket. \o/
This is a sneaky trial run for an Aristocrat-appropriate jacket later this year. C'mon, sewing machine, we have stitching to do.

what are your guys' thoughts on interfacing? i'm going to make a half elastic waist skirt and i don't know if i should buy interfacing because it's a tad expensive and i don't know how to use it.
23rd-Feb-2013 12:16 am (UTC)
Iron on interfacing is easy to attach and makes the fabric stiffer. I think that you'll only need a small strip for the non-elastic half of the waist to make it look nicer when worn.

anyone know any indie/off brand shops that sell really ott headdresses and hats, aatp style, all the aatp ones sell out so fast?? also if you buy a reserve dress from baby you cant order accessories from a diffrent line can you? thanks :)
23rd-Feb-2013 12:25 am (UTC)
Something like these, maybe?
23rd-Feb-2013 01:40 am (UTC)
I can't explain why, but being a lolita rapper just feels so good.
23rd-Feb-2013 02:45 am (UTC)
And it sounds so good too!

Do you mind if I friend you on lj? I feel like I've seen you posting here since I started so many years ago and I always love making new awesome lolita friends

23rd-Feb-2013 11:31 am (UTC)

This Tuesday a restaurant exploded. Construction crews hit a gas line. Luckily they got almost everyone out before the fire, although one person was killed. It felt weird as I had lunch at nearby restaurant just a few hours before. Really, I don't know how to describe how I felt.

Then the day after we're hit by a blizzard and I'm snowed in. I'm so bored because I can't leave the house.

Evening everyone

Did a dry run of hair/makeup and fitting. SUPER NERVOUS because my partner has yet to actually finish her outfits and one is falling apart due to the leather choice :( But there's no time to fix it because she put it off for too long

And I haven't been to a Lolita meetup in forever

When is strawberry season in your country? Because it's strawberry season right now!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Does anyone have any clever ways to fix shoe scuffs?
I am so hard on shoes even though I try to be careful.
23rd-Feb-2013 05:33 pm (UTC)
Someone said you can use white toothpaste to fix scuffs on white shoes. Doesn't work for me, but you can give it a try. I think that's for things that aren't real scuffs, just like smudges. The kind you can get off with magic eraser. That works better than toothpaste. They make shoe polish in different colors, but mostly black and brown. When I was a kid, my parents had white, too, for my summer church shoes. But idk if they still make it. Pretty sure they don't make mint, sax, pink, and lavender xD

anyone tried those hairpastels out on dark hair? I want to try them for our meet-up tomorrow

Also just bought a WiiU, having lots of fun playing ZombiU!
