Salut! I was just wondering whether any EGLs are interested in the cello rock band Rasputina. They possess a distinctly gothic Victorian aesthetic and style. I am the organizer of the Dances of Vice Festival in New York in February 2008, and Rasputina will be the headlining act for the festival in the exciting context of a Victorian costumed ball. We will be featuring a number of prizes at the event appealing to the EGL community, such as Victorian hats, corsets, jewelry, and so forth. Seeing as EGLs are perfectly suited (dressed?) for the occasion, I would love to invite members of the EGL community to the festival to represent the Lolita scene. Perhaps we could even organize a NY meetup?
Furthermore, if you sell or design fashion, artwork, or accessories that appeals to a Neo-Victorian, gothic Lolita, and/or steampunk audience, perhaps you could consider advertising with the Festvial, which would be a guaranteed way to increase sales and exposure for your business. Interested parties may investigate further at our website.
