Re : Petticoats and circle skirts, I have come to the conclusion that I was wrong about them. I had previously said multiple times that you can put a very light petticoat under a circle skirt and look ok, if the low poof look suited the rest of your outfit, but putting a foofy one under your skirt would just make you resemble a square dancer too much.
Except I made myself (finally!) one of my standard loli petticoats 2.5 weeks ago, and tried it under a black tiered circle skirt I have, and got a pretty loli bell shape out of it. Here's a really horrible photo XD
Yes, terrible, but shows the shape well.

So basically, having a good, loli shaped petticoat can make circle skirts work, and is more important than having a skirt made to an official loli shape. Within reason. But hey, it made my $5 thrifted skirt work, so I'm happy.
I'd still advise people making their own skirts to stick with trapezoid or rectangle skirts, though. They're easier to make (hemming a big circle? bleh), take up less fabric, and circle skirts just don't work with any vertical lace decorations. I know about that last from experience.
And if you buy an atrociously ugly square dance skirt and put a loli petticoat under it, it'll just be atrocious with a nice shape. XP
Having just seen pictures of my face, would I look stupid if I bought this wig
and gave it a hime cut
to wear when doing more formal loli and aristo? (Since my usual haircut is better suited for casual and punk loli.) I'd be getting auburn, NOT that blonde color
. Or maybe I'd leave it as is, as far as the cut. Just leave it long and straight with bangs instead of the hime.
Anyway, tell me what to do, I suck at figuring out what works with my face shape. ^^;;
