First Post to EGL! And a question...


Hello, everyone! I finally think I deserve to post since I jst received my first lolita dress, a mint green little number from Mary Magdalene. It was $300 and worth every dollar!! So happy :)  I will post some pics of me in it when I get a chance ^_^


However, although my style would officially be considered classical in most lolita circles, what drew me to lolita is my love of Victorian fashion -- spurred by my love of books from near or around that era since I was a child; Anne of Green Gables, Alice in Wonderland, Little Women, etc. Although I am wearing lolita dresses I want to stay as true to the details of era as much as possible.  (Think of it as lolita with a little historical re-creation).

 
I am looking for Victorian or Edwardian (or resembling) hair bows (not the big AP ones popularised in Japan), the ones you would wear in a Pollyanna (hair half up, half down), as well as Victorian button up boots. So if any of you have any ideas where I could buy it online or how to make one, please let me know.

As soon as I get my ensemble together, I will have pictures for all of you! :) よろしくお願いします, そしてたのしみ!
