I am an elegant gothic-deprived person. I CANNOT FIND ANYTHING. Arrgh. I have been hunting for EGA clothing for so long. I wear a shitty pinstripe jacket from Hot Topic over a plain black T-shirt, and black dickies pants, because that's all I can find.
I have checked eBay in every way I could think of. Nothing. Googled it, only found a couple Japanese sites that sold their shirts for like 17000 yen each. That's a little less than $170 isn't it?
So, what I'm asking: Does anybody know a good place I can find elegant gothic (preferably aristocrat, but anything is worth looking at) clothing for MEN, for CHEAP? Or at least a reasonable price.
I was wondering if anyone had any pictures of Gothic Lolitas wearing gantais (medical eyepatches)? Thank you~! I apologize if this is useless spam. ^_^
Because I'm having money troubles (summer college at Yale really put a dent in my parents' wallets), I was thinking of taking commissions/selling loli items so I could pay my parents back. But my mother thinks that by selling things, I need a license of some sort otherwise it's illegal. I'm not planning to start a business, so I don't think it's required...unless I'm wrong?
I was just curious if anyone knew any good gothic lolita etc shops located in korea?
If anyone knows any I would love to know.
Thank you in advance
High, long time lurker here and a frst time poster.
I was wondering about the attitudes of nihonjin loli''s are toward dressed up gaijin. I'm planning on visiting japan at some stage soon and want to know whether a tall curvey blonde girl with limited japanese but a taste for loli styles will get laughed out of town. Last time i was in japan everyone thought i was the cutest thing and treated me really nicely, i don't want this to change this time around, but unfortunately i'm no longer a short, adorable, and tiny bit chubby 14 year old.
So, if i don't want the cool kids of harajuku to laugh at me as i walk down their streets, would it be a good idea to hide my style under typical tourist garb (jeans and a baggy teeshirt) or can i be myself when dressing without being looked at as "the tall hulking pale forgien monstrosity"?
Also, i make a bit of pocket money at the moment doing very small scale modeling (it pays better than checkout work ^^) and have a friend who swears blind that work for girls like myself practically falls into your lap in japan. Any truth to the rumour?
Thanks in advance girls!
PS:I know not to wear tight clothes and short skirts, at 14 i was being sexually harrassed on subways, i hate to think what they would be like now)
Hello darling EGL-ians! (EGL-ites? o.O)
I was considering making my own dress for the first time, instead of modifying dresses i have bought.
It seemed simple enough, my sewing skills are fair, and i can read a pattern, no trouble there. Unfortunately, before i can do anything...I need cloth.
;__; What types of cloth do you recommend? If someone could also please describe to me that basic cloth differences (such as what's the difference between cotton and muslin, etc), I'd be very grateful.
Unfortunately, as I'm a jobless senior in high-school, most of my money goes to gas and EGL bibles, and i can not just throw caution to the wind and go with a 15$/yd velvet.
I know that for wa-lolita kimono style outfits that you have to wear the outfit left side over the right side but I was wondering if that was for a respectful purpose or what. I mean to say if I was to wear it right over left which is meant for the dead would like intending myself to be dead or just a really "gothic" lolita with a death element, if it would be disrespectful. Is it like an unspoken "NO, NEVER" outside of a death or what? I mean I've learned this but I've never really known the reason for it and the proper way to go about it. Thanks in advance for your help.
Just a general brand-name question:
How many brands make skirts that accomodate a 70 cm waistline? (roughly 27.5", I believe.) Pretty much everything I can find is 68 cm, which would be too tight to be comfortable. I make basically all my skirts to begin with, but when I'm cruising YJ for deals I like to know if things will fit. (Obviously elastic waistbands would be excluded from this, especially since I don't like elastic waistbands.) Sooo... any brands that frequently offer this size? I think it's equivalent to a Japanese 10. I was lusting after that Innocent World cut set/skirt/socks set with the white rabbit, but I'm pretty sure the skirt is too small. Blast.
Sorry for posting more than once within a span of a couple hours, but does anyone know of any shops online (or preferably stores that one can drive to) that sell good plaid for making punk loli outfits/school girl outfits?
