This is my first post to egl, so if I do it wrong, please gently correct me. (and despite how oddly worded that sentence was, English IS my first language...) I've also spent the last hour or two browsing through loli_secret, so if I wasn't nervous about posting before, I definitely am now...
Okay, um, can I just write a brief introduction before I get to the clothes? I know the rules say 'no introduction posts' but this post isn't JUST an introduction post, I'm just tacking that on here so people know a teeny bit about me before seeing random pictures of some stranger... If it's a problem, I can delete the introduction part...
I'm 20 years old, live in the US (New York, specifically) and I've been interested in lolita on and off for about... four or five years? Though I've never bought any of the clothes... (But before anyone says, "You're not lolita if you don't wear the clothes!" let me elaborate... I've never bought any LOLITA clothes, but I do have clothes that I use for Ouji/Aristocrat (offbrand). And I have my first Baby dress coming to me in the mail at this very moment, thanks so very much to Emiiri!!! It's a dream dress, I'm quite psyched.) I do go to meetups with the local group and it's quite lovely, especially as I am generally the only boystyle there. (Means I can perv on all the cute lolis, mwahahaha >:D) But I am excited to try the more feminine styles too...I must add, I am very tall (5'11") so I do worry about how lolita dresses will fit me... But I figure, worst comes to worst, I can wear a slightly longer skirt underneath them so they reach my knees.
Okay, that's enough of the introduction. As I've mentioned, boystyles are kind of my main thing (at least right now), and I see that one of the egl themes for September is, in fact, boystyle. Oh, I have such good timing! If nobody minds too much, I will post a few pictures.... I won't post them all at once. Some today, some in a few days, some next week, something like that. I'd rather not picspam everyone on my first post... ^^; (gosh I'm so nervous!)
Today I'll post the pictures of me from my first meetup, which was last May. (I was too nervous to go to the meetups before then!) I'll try not to post any that are too similar to each other. ^^
First I'll just post my favorite picture from that meet, then more after the cut. :D (I hope I'm doing this right!)
This one is a little blurry, sorry...
With some of the girls! :D
Oh, delicious candy... ;D
So there's my first boystyle post for this month's theme. I'll post another in a few days if nobody minds. :'D
(Edit: LJ says I can't add tags to entries in the journal, is that normal for egl or is it my account? I've barely used LJ before now...)
