So I woke up at midnight, after dreaming of making my first skirt. (whoops! I'll have to figure out how to get ahold of a petti!)
and I have the question for you. (and a rather good question it is.)
What are everyone's reasons for being lolita?
Do you just like the cute style, or is their a deeper meaning?
I've seen a few do's and don'ts lists, but none ever really adressed my questions, so I'm really sorry if this has been addressed before, but I would really like to know.
I'm very very new to the Loli style, I've never worn it before, but I want to for Oni-con. I make my own clothes, so I just have a few questions.
I'm a plus size girl, so is it better to have a less poofy skirt or a more poofy skirt?
Because of my plus size-ness, I have lots of cleavage naturally, so is it bad to show said cleavage or is a little cleavage actually okay? To tie into that question, is a square or scoop neck more preferred?
Are off-the-shoulder sleeves okay, or should I be attempting show as little skin as possible?
These are probably really silly questions to those in the know, but it would really help alot in my dressmaking process if someone could answer them for me.
As most of us know, the situation in Louisiana and Mississippi just keeps getting worse. I don't know about all of you kids, but I don't have nearly as much money to donate to helping out as I would like. So I had an idea, and I'm hoping that some of you will be interested. I was thinking that I could make a few skirts and auction them off in the community and then send all of the proceeds to the red cross to aid with the efforts to help the victims of Katrina. I would take a screen shot and post it where people could see when I made the donation so that you all would know that I *actually* did donate the money.
Would anybody be interested in that?
No amount of money is too small to send to the people in need, and the people who bought the skirts would end out with some cute new lolita clothes. ^^
If you comment that you're interested, please put the colors, sizes and styles that you would most like to see for the auction.
I'm off for a il trip down to US so i'll be half planning the rules and sort for the loli contest but be sure one rule will be set:
If arguments or flame should be found I will end the contest.
Aside from that if you think of any suggestions when please post here and i'll take a look at it when i come back^-^!
