Hey guys! I'm Myrthafae and I've just recently gotten into lolita. I've been assembling a cord but I'm currently sitting on the fence when it comes to petticoats and in humble need of guidance of you wise lolitas out there! (つД`)ノ
I initially heard a lot of recommendations for Malco Modes and Classical Puppets but recently I've been seeing a lot of posts on forums about the declining quality of their current stock such as the petticoats losing their shape quickly. If anyone knows anything about this or if they have any recommendations, I'll be forever grateful!
16th-May-2015 08:36 pm - Bodyline Dress L144 Help/Oppinion
Hi! ^^ I love this dress Bodyline L144. It is the carousel one. I'm wondering if it could fit a larger bust or not? On lolibrary the lolitas are saying that it fit them just right when they were the measurements of the dress (or smaller) but idk if it could go bigger since it has corset lacing. What do you girls think? O.O

16th-May-2015 06:33 pm - There are deaf Lolitas ?
Hello everyone

I post this message to everyone to ask if there are deaf Lolitas?

Why this question? This is because I am the only deaf lolita since 5 years in France, it is not at all easy for me to be alone in the world of Lolitas even though I have friends Lolitas hearing that were there for me

but I really want to know that I would not be the only deaf in this world and I would like to know deaf Lolitas if there.. It's to be able to share my passion, I do not feel any One especially bavander with them in sign language more simply..

That is my only desire to find deaf Lolitas in the world and share my passion with them, I really wish all of my heart

so I hope everyone will see my message. And deaf Lolitas can send me private messages to know me,

Thank you in advance and I really hope that there would be answers..

15th-May-2015 12:41 pm - English Charm
Does anyone know what happened to English Charm? It seems like the website is gone. Can someone inform me about it please? I searched for a post on this but it doesn't seem to exist.
I bought this skirt out of impulse two years ago from a Jane Marple store while visiting Japan. Since I have never worn it and have no interested in lolita at this moment, I'd like to sell it. Before that I'd like to find out the name for this skirt or at least the collection or even something to put in to describe it other than lace skirt from Jane Marple.

What's your favorite lolita cameo or character in a movie, tv show, book, or other media? Just wondering. I recently realized there was an lolita-ish character in "X-Men: Days of Future Past", and since I love X-Men and lolita, I don't care how awkward her coord looks, she's totally my favorite lolita cameo (and I really want to know what her mutant power is, if she has one in the script!).

What about you guys? Have you seen a lolita in a commercial, music video, or what-have-you, that you've grown fond of?

12th-May-2015 07:11 pm - What's in the mail?

What have you recieved in the mail lately? Was it a big haul or just a single item?
Tell us about it, post photos or even made a video? Who doesn't love an unboxing!

Welcome to the EGL Free for All! Now also on Mondays! Yay!

Live journal deleted my original text so I will make a condensed version of what my post was.

I am needing to put my most worn clothes in the washing machine. They have gotten to the point where spot cleaning and Febreeze won’t take care of it. I’ve read many washing machine posts and also the memories. I’ve learned that dresses should be put into mesh/delicates bag, use Woolite Delicate Care detergent, setting on cold, and they should be hung dry.

I have a few questions before I start. Any advice or responses would be appreciative, thank you!

1.) What size Load should I have? I was thinking of washing 3 of my most worn dresses (solid pink, no prints, chiffon AP dresses) and 1 blouse (chiffon blouse by BtSSB).

2.) Should I put each garment in its own mesh bag? My bags are large enough to fit 2-3 dresses in, but I feel it may be better to have each garment in its own bag?

3.) On my washing machine (I will attach photos below), there is three parts: Load size, Temperature, and Cycle. I plan on having the Load size to be Super, even though there is only 4 garments. The temperature will be Cold/Cold. But the Cycle, which has 3 settings; Cottons, Dark Colors, and Casual — what should I put it on? I was thinking Casual but I’m not sure. Also should I put it on Light, Heavy, Rinse & Soak, or Drain & Spin? I was thinking about Light but I’d like others input.

Also would it be okay to also use "Downys Unstoppable In-Scent Booster" along with the Woolite Delicates Care detergent?

Here are pictures of my washer settings:

Thank you!

10th-May-2015 07:27 pm - Shop Update!
Thanks to your constructive critisicm and helpful advice I've changed, added, removed, etc the products in my shop and added a new line called Mermaid Princess! I hope I took your advice to best use and I would like to get your opinion once more to see if I've improved any. Not everything in my shop is Lolita but I believe a lot of it is Loli-able and generally better.

9th-May-2015 05:30 pm - Buying from My Lolita Dress
So I decided to seriously treat myself if I pass all of my finals (especially physics), and I found an indie brand jsk that I love on My Lolita Dress (, and they also have Classical Puppets' bell-shaped petticoats.
I was wondering if they were trustworthy/good quality?  I know they have brand stuff, but I also know that doesn't really mean anything.
And hints about their sizing are totally welcome. (Especially because the jsk I'm looking at has bust measurements that are significantally smaller than the waist, or maybe they're just reversed.) (

7th-May-2015 06:17 pm - Wearing Lolita to school in Japan
Hello everyone!

I need advice from lolitas attending a japanese university.

I'm going to apply to a fashion university in tokyo and as you know, I have to go through an admission interview. Do you think it would it's okay for me to attend my classes and my interview in lolita ? There was a few lolita inspired outfits in their 2014 fashion show, so I don't think it would be ''weird'' but i'm still a bit nervous. It's part of how I express my love for fashion, so I don't see why it would be a problem. I just don't want to upset anyone and maybe ruin my chances of getting into fashion university.

If you want to share your story of what it's like to wear lolita to university in japan, I would love to read them!<3
