Lolita- Child abuse?

I have a question.

I think of my self as a full lolita in mind...but I have no actual dresses yet.

Getting the dresses are very difficult for me, because my dad think lolita is something inapropriate, related to child abuse and sexuality.
He has read the original Lolita novel, and the fact that there has been a news report that said some girl in highschool who dresses gothloli murdered this other girl had not helped at all.

So I was wondering, if anyone has any ideas how to convince my dad that lolita as a fashion is nothing related to sex or the original novel? Something logical...my dad is a very logical=_= person and he is hard to convince.

I thank you in advance~

Lolitasnap?

Does anyone knows what's going on now concerning lolitasnap? It says "Lolitasnap will be up in 2 weeks." since more than 2 weeks now^^
I was just wondering, specially because I'm curious about what and how it changed now.
Connected?

OMGskirts in stores.

Wow. It's been so long since I've posted here.

I'm in desperate need of new skirts and I've exhausted all my options at the mall (that I know of .. I work there, so I'm always checking around in two or three *possible* stores). Has anyone noticed any interesting skirts in any stores recently? I'm finding it all but impossible to find a longer skirt around here. Everything's a mini or a pleated-mini or mid-calf length.

No shortage of cute baby doll tees for my casual look I'm happy to report. Lots of cute screen tees and such.

But the skirts are my priority. I'm probably going to be hunting for JSKs in the near future as well. I hear they're indispensable in a loli wardrobe. X3 I'm so behind. Money's been tight for awhile. Now I can spend somewhat freely. XD

And ohgod shoes. I'm gonna be on a shoe spree in a moment. I have big feet though. >_>;

Any help = greatly appreciated. You have no idea.

Merchant question

Hi, I have a question about Rakuen Fashion. For those of you who've gotten dresses from them, how long did it take for you to receive your order?

I'm thinking of buying this, mainly because I want to get as much mileage out of the pieces as possible. I like it because it doesn't seem to have as much lace as some of the others, and appears to be pretty versatile. Opinions?

Thank you!

CHEEPTRIMS GROUP ORDER REMINDER

Cheeptrims sells lace by the spool. They sell Venice lace for 50c-$1/yd, cluny and eyelet laces for as little as 20cents for some laces, and 3/4" elastic for thirteen cents a yard! Last day to get in on the order is Feb 23! Click here to see the original post and join in. There are lots of spools that are partially taken that need to be finished off.

Just curious

I'm trying to send payment to a fellow egl member but here is the problem They don't have paypal and are in Australia. I offered to send a Postal IMO, and to my surprise, such thing does not exist(for Australia). Ive contacted several banks to no avail, and I priced Western Union, and the fee is more then the item itself. So, how have you send money to Australia, cause I'm stumped here :(

questions...

hey guys, i had some questions, about too much poof ( i know there was a post about this earlier- but i have pictures!) and about skirt patterns. i thought someone said to use a circle skirt, upon searching the memories and search engine, i found that it was NOT to use a circle skirt, in fear of looking like a country dancer. But it said to use a trapazoid or reqtangle skirt. i found the free patterns people made but was wondering if tehre were any actual real patterns out there that people have and could reconmend to me? (like simplicity etc) i can wait for the dollar patterns sale at my hancock to get them. heres a link to the old post with the photos, it was in there with the ATL skate party, so i guess not to many people noticed me askign questions. thanks for your imput!

Public Service Announcement

I've noticed lots of people are asking questions about shoe fit here and I just wanted to make an announcement about how to tell your Japanese shoe size since you can't always trust conversion tables. It -should- work for all shoes in Japanese sizes, although it may not but this method seems more reliable than just simple conversion tables. This was told me to me by my suppliers at the Secret Shop factory here in China so it really should work for Secret Shop shoes ^^

Place a piece of paper on the ground. Step on it with your whole foot. Trace it, probably best to have someone else trace it while you stand to get a proper measurement. Measure the length from your heel to your longest toe - which may not be your big toe! The measurement in cm should be your size according to Japanese shoes.
It also is advised you do this just to know the measurement of your foot if you are buying shoes online. You should ask the seller for the inner measurement of the shoe (which can be hard to get it accurate, I know) and compare to your foot, although there should be some room for comfort.
