Ok, I bought a petticoat locally over a week ago and am having a terrible time getting it to lie right. I have had it on my dress dummy since the day i bought it. It is synthetic, so it is not like I can press it. It was in a bag at the chop, so it has creases in it that are causing it to have sharp angles instead of the nice round shape. Any advice?
I was wondering if anyone would like to start a Lolita Gift Exchange, through snailmail. It would be mostly small gifts, wrapped cutely. Mostly homemade things, gloves, scarves, candles.. Things like that.
I think it would be a good idea, and a fun way to show what you like to other people! The Lolita Exchange Project would need people who could accept packages ( no P.O boxes ), and who give away real addresses. Real names don't really matter, though.
Can anyone suggest a really cute gothic renaisance lolita dress? I need one asap.
Anyone know any good American-language, Lolita style patterns? Know as in know the company that makes it? I want to try to sew a lolita outfit~
I was wondering if there are any lolita's in Turkey.
I would like to come in contact with them if they are, thank you.
My father is Turkish.

Well, now that we have that over with, I have few questions. While I've been an admirer of the Lolita fashion for a while now, I've have never really had the confidence to wear it or even post in communities such as this. Please don't compare me to a Hot Topic mallrat because of it! >_<
As a result of my general laziness, I'm rather behind, and have some very silly, silly questions..
What type of Lolita look is good for what type of body? For example, I'm very tall, thin, and have a long face.. I really don't see Sweet Lolita on me anytime soon. But what's bugging me, is which type of Lolita style would be best? Out of curiosity, what about other body types?
Also, is there any proper way of holding your parasol when it's open or closed? This has been bugging me, even though it's such a trivial thing. Come to think of it, is there even a front and a back with a parasol or umbrella?
Sorry to have bothered you. I'm happy to see this community posts very often, though. ^^ Thanks for putting up with me~
Well, I've posted a few comments around here, and tried to read up a bit. I love the style, and want to mesh it just a bit with renaissance, since i love the two styles so much I can't choose.
The main problem is I'm kind of the token Fat Girl at school, and while I dress rather freakishly, it's not what I like. I personally can't afford to buy name brand things, though i would love to, and I doubt that they would have them in my size. It's going to be a long transfer, because I need to loose quite a good deal of weight.
I was wondering about lifestyles, in particular. With regular Gothic there's an entire subculture you need to be a part of, and it's a lifestyle. I was wondering if that was true for this as well. Any help would be appreiciated.
