dress design

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us

I just wanted to post a dress design I drew, I'm not so sure it would practically work (maybe constructed like a halter top?) but after I drew the front I had been hoping to have a more edgy design and tried to accomplish that with the back view. As it is design to be made (the RBK thing, I hope that's still going on) some utilitarian pointers from you sewing lolitas would be greatly appreciated.

EGL tea party question

I'm going to an EGL tea party on the 29 and I'm *super nervous*.I don't have too much lolita-esque items (I have some skirts like the one I'm posting off ebay and such),and I don't have the funds to go out and buy/make anything either-my college fees has been sucking up all my money for the past month (its insane how much it costs for books!).I was wracking my brains for something and I thought of this outfit.If all else fails with the shirt I put on here,I do have a plain black shirt with huge bell sleeves,and a black and white poofy tim burton-esque skirt I can use.

Thanks for any feedback.

Hi!

Does anyone have links to online stores or ebay stores that sell EGLish or fairy-ish bead crowns? I know I had a few links, but, unfortunately, lost them. :( Thank you!

I just have a quick question for those who've been/lived/know people from Japan. From what I understood the lolitas who hang around Harajuku and Yoyogi Park usually only do it on Sundays or for events like concerts and such, right?
The rest of the time they just dress the same as everybody else.
Is that still the custom or has changed any?

I think it is safe to say that EGL is a street fashion in japan, hai?
But from what i've found, FRUiTS means not only all the street fashions in Japan, but fashions that are original and unique.

Therefore, I personally would say it's safe to call EGL a type of FRUiTS fashion.

Here is my main source for this conclusion.
