Kawaii vapers?

Any lolitas smoking e-cigarettes? I've seen a lot of cute, pink vape kits lately, and with all the marshmallow, cake, chocolate etc. flavors I'm wondering if anyone else is doing this. I did go to a meet where one lolita had one with some delicious sweet flavor, though I didn't try it!

So far, I haven't gotten a cute pink kit yet, though I've definitely seen them and I'm interested. Any good loli flavors? I went to a vape store recently and tried some of the "sweet" flavors but none of them really appealed to me. The sweetest one I've purchased so far is Chocolate Mint, which I like to refer to as Chocomint. Anyone coording their e-cigs with their outfits or favorite prints? There seem to be a lot of potential combinations, I've even seen pancake flavored e-liquid. Donut flavored, maybe? It'd be cool to hear about some lolita-esque blends, especially mixed combos, and see cool outfit-matched kits.

I have cotton candy, cupcake, cherry cake, and the like. There's a really yummy gummi bears one! I have two vapor cigarettes, one is pink and one is purple. The pink one has a hello kitty mouthpiece. There's a lot of things you can do with them, personalize them with stickers and everything! Even creating a deco case for yours is an option! My case is hello kitty, too.

Ooh! Any pictures of yours? did you DIY it? I don't really DIY but I'd like to get a cute premade case.

I don't have pictures, but I pretty much just stuck Lisa Frank stickers on it. Also, my case is a Hello Kitty pencil case. It works well for me. I haven't ventured too far into DIY yet, but I want to make a sonic screwdriver e-cig once I learn what I'm doing!

Papi Churro. Hands-down the best juice I've ever tried, and I've been going around sampling these things for years.
It's just the perfect cinnamon-y, buttery, sugary flavor- I've been carefully rationing out my 25ml bottle, but I've got friends who can blast through a liter or so in a month. I seriously don't know how they manage to get such an intense buttery taste with diacetyl-free flavorings.

Other than that, one of my local shops stocks this super generic line of juice with a surprisingly good rainbow sherbet flavor. It's nice and fruity and just a bit creamy.
Besides those, my ADVs are Dr. Mike's Green Apple (tastes like a combo of sour apple straws and green Skittles) and Pink Spot's Riptide (mentholated blue raspberry). I just really love candy flavors!

Here's my eGo kit, which has seen better days. I don't carry it around much anymore because I've switched to some slim batts I've modded to look like Sailor Moon wands. ;u;

Ooh, thanks for the tip! I'll check that flavor out!
Your kit.. is SO CUTE. Is that a makeup bag?
I also totally want to see the modded Sailor Moon wands. I like the idea, not sure how I'd feel puffing on a crescent moon wand. It'd be really cool if the crystal lit up. One problem I have with my kit is the end doesn't light up, I like that :|
What's your local area? I am moving to Portland and I was surprised to see vapor stores, there are none where I live as far as I know. But I was pleasantly surprised to visit one in Portland and be able to try different ones, even if they only had about ~30 basic flavors.

Thanks! I actually made the bag myself. My friends use makeup/toiletry bags, though- they're a lot cuter for a lot less effort. :P

I'll see about getting photos of the modded batts when I get home (because yes, the crystals do light up!).
The only problem with them- and most ecigs, imo- is that I don't really like using them around kids... mine definitely look like toys, as do most customized ecigs, and I'm worried that it might make smoking/vaping look attractive to them, if that makes any sense. I feel like a hypocrite because vaping's a fun hobby for me, and I'm a huge advocate for it and how safe it is, but I don't think kids or minors should be taking it up and playing around with it. :/

Oh man, if you ever take a trip down to California, there're new vape shops popping up all the time. I'm going to school in SoCal right now; there're seriously ten stores within walking distance of campus, and another five within walking distance of my apartment. Most of them are pretty small and basic, only a limited selection of juices and equipment, but the more established ones have huge juice bars and some proprietary blends and mods.
Best chain by far is Vapor Spot- their flagship store in Sherman Oaks is huge, it looks like an upscale nightclub. They're partnered with all of the biggest American e-liquid suppliers, as well as all of the local ones (there are seriously so many in California) and usually have the newest models of batts/mods/atomizers on sale. When you go in, you can sit down with one of their baristas and get recommendations for different flavors to sample (over 10,000 in stock) and just hang out for hours. I can definitely see their business model getting picked up by other stores in the future, since the vaping community has such a huge focus on socializing.

I know several people really into those, and they just use flavored liquids, not even nicotine. They have cotton candy and pina colada that smell good, although I've never tried them.

Yeah, that's what the loli I saw was doing! I like a little bit of nicotine but it'd be nice to transition out of it.

I only know that it was just water because I got pissed at them for doing it indoors, lol. I can't really get mad over candy-smelling water!

This might be an odd question, but, could you smoke them without nicotine completely? Some of the scents that I've experienced are really nice smelling, but I don't smoke and would only be interested in smoking an e-cig for flavor/shits and giggles.

Yep, you can! They come in nicotine contents from 0-24mg. You might not see the 0mg ones in physical stores, but they're available online! I've heard a few people say they just like the smell/taste.
