The Weekly Lolita Update (Beta)

September 25 to October 2
Issue 1

brought to you by xaynie & colortheory

Hot Topics in the Lolita  Blogosphere!


Brand Releases


Meta

Innocent World
Baby Stars / AaTP
Angelic Pretty (please keep in mind these are google translations from their Japanese site so the translations might be a little bit off / funny)
We are looking for “brand ambassadors”- members who can give us brand release updates for the brands above in addition to ones we don’t have listed above! If you are constantly clicking on the refresh button for new Angelic Pretty releases, then you’re exactly who we’re looking for.  Please contact xaynie for more details.

Tutorial of the Week

Sewing a Victorian Bustle Skirt. This tutorial is very easy to follow with pictures and diagrams (and doesn’t get enough love). The tutorial can be used to make more classic skirts like this one. If you create something using the tutorial, please share it with the community!

Sales
  • The sales community rules have been modified slightly to clarify consequences and actions for the following items:
    • DS/DA distinctions
    • DA/GO reposts
    • Shopping Service reposts
    • Formatting

We have not, however, made any major changes to the rules- just made it a little clearer for both moderators and members how to proceed in some very specific cases. However, over the course of this week and next we will be discussing and implementing further clarifications to the 75/25 rule and the process of applying for un-moderated posting access. Please keep an eye out for these changes!



Feedback
  • We have a huge backlog of over 2000+ feedbacks to add. As we work through this, please be patient with us.


Some Questions for the Community

This is our first Beta issue so we would love to hear your comments on how we could improve. Does everyone want brand updates? Is it too much, too little, or unnecessary? Should we include other brands? Is there anything else we missed that could make this even more informative?

Any comments, questions, or suggestions regarding this weekly roundup is wholly welcomed! In addition, if you have any hot topics you would like to submit, please send them to xaynie with the topic “Newsletter tip”. We can’t guarantee that every submission will be posted but we know we can’t scour the entire Lolita blogosphere without your help so please submit away!
