Okay, after too many storms and too much snow for a supposed mild climate, I need summer talk!
Might as well be prepared for that humid heat and burning sun before we end up deep fried lolis with sweat stained 200$ dresses.
What do you recomend as the Must Have cosmetics, wether it be lotions, make-up, hair products etc to maintain that girly perfection through the summer months? What do you use to protect clothing from dust, ice cream drips and grass stains?
and just for fun, everyone knows how to make a cute lolita outfit for summer. Cpractical lolita for say, that trip to the amusement park, or hanging out at the beach isn't so easy. How would you co-ordinate an outfit without sacrificing too much of the fashion. While still maintaining that distinct lolita flare and style.
I was wondering if anyone knew the max waist/bust of the Meta Cat print pinafore dress? I think there's some give to it, I see shirring in the back. Thx ~*~
Sorry if this question is painfully stupid. What is the best way to order something from the IW sale? Shopping service? Or is there anyone currently in Japan that would be willing to nab a small item or two for me? please let me know! Thanks!
This may sound like a strange question, but I'm curious. To those of you who sew your Lolita clothing AND also buy brand name clothing, which do you wear more? The homemade or the brand?
Last year, my eye doctor perscribed those Transition glasses (those glasses that fade to sunglasses in direct sunlight) for me to see if my eyesight does not get worse and to see if my sight is getting worse rapidly due to sunlight. I have to keep them on and my parents won't let me out without them.
Now, these glasses have been a slight disadvantage for me. I got kicked out of marching band because I have to wear these glasses no matter what, and apparently, making the band look good comes first. It also hit me that I might look stupid if I dressed in lolita with them on.
So I was thinking, should I ditch the glasses and wear a reglular pair while under a parasol or is there any other suggestion.
Thanks in advance!
i got my meta lucky pack the other day. oh no, not another post on lucky packs!
i'm pretty happy with it. its the one with the black skirt, blouse, bloomers, and socks. to my surprise, the clothes seem kinda on the big side. i actually wondered which was the front on the skirt because it felt like one side fell lower when tried it on (seriously. i know that sounds stupid).
anyways, i don't have a pannier. have so far tried with the addition of the bloomers but still kinda same effect of thinking the skirt could easily fall with a tug. i was wondering if others who do have one have found the skirt to stay on moreso or is this just something to hefty and big?
thankies in advance
For those of you whose group of friends like Lolita too, I was just curious about how your friends reacted to gothic lolita fashion. Did all of your friends get into it at once, or did you convince them to like it? I havn't really talked to my friends about it (as I don't wear loli everyday...yet!), so I don't really know what they think about it. I wish they would get into it as well, then we could be lolis together!
So whats you story?
This is slightly off topic, but I thought I'd give it a try. Delete this post if necessary!
Okay, its obvious that the members of this community have good taste!! And we share an interest...So, I was hoping some of you could recommend a good book to read? I can't find anything...and I've been so bored...
So, what's your favorite book?
I really love suspense, mystery, thrillers; but, any genre is fine!
If you got any recommendations I'd really appreciate it!!
Thank you in advance!! (^__^)
So, on the second or so I emailed Fan Plus Friend, I wanted to take advantage of the free shipping. I didn't hear back from them and the eigth passed, I assumed I wouldn't get the free shipping after that so gave up. Since then I've heard some bad things about them, so I was sort of relieved, although I REALLY wanted the stuff. Now they replied and told me it was an earthquake that caused them to loose their ability to contact overseas and that I could still have free shipping on the things I told them I wanted. I simply do NOT know what to do anymore. It's a lot of money to spend, but the free shipping helps a lot. I need input from anyone who's ordered from Fanplusfriend, expecially custom sizing, to help me weight this out.
I'm trying to figure out what I have to buy to make the little red bunny purse in the Gosu Rori accessory book. But I need help deciphering two of the words in the materal list:
what does 袋布用布 mean? and does タオル布 mean terrycloth?
