Since it sold out recently... can I email them to see if they might still have on in stock somewhere, or should I give up and try alternate routes? Does anyone have experience in this department or am I simply an idiot?
To avoid making two posts, I have another lolita-related question. This summer I am going to be spending two weeks in the Seattle area. I've already located a Japanese garden and a tea shop, but is there anything else Seattle Lolitas particularly like to do? I'll be with relatives so I don't think a meetup is possible but a suggestion of activities would be helpful.
Thank you in advance!
It was a lolita picnic at a convention.
I also am aware that there's a comm for pirate lolitas specifically, but I can't remember the name of it to save my life. (I'll bet it's something really simple, too DX)
So! Just have fun showing off pictures in this post (they don't have to be pirate Dandies, btw, any pirate lolita is good), whether they are of you or of others, and you'll be helping me immensely. xD
Thank you in advance~!

If anyone can help me I will forever be in your debt. Thank you.
Edit: I sadly have no actual photos of the shirt nor could I find any online. However, I did find this which is very close to what my shirt looks like. I hope that helps. If not, I'll try to get my friend to take photos for me.
This memorial day weekend, I finally had the time to dress up and take pictures in my first brandz, a meta jsk! Truly a Kodak moment. It was all ITS and F+F...until now. AND I also had time to make a matching bow.

So my friend is looking into Boz.
His measurements are as follows:
90 cm bust
68 cm for sleeves
47 cm shoulders
So basically he is a skinny white guy. He's slightly larger than the Japanese these brands cater to usually.
I have some questions about the fit of the items he's looking into.

I'm pretty sure that I did the measurements right, but can anyone help me and tell me how they measure sleeves? Shoulders too. ♥
Also, the Union Jack site confuses the hell out of me. Am I missing where they give measurements? Can anyone help?
The watchful folks over at a-community-that-must-not-be-named have come across a disturbing trend in LJ. You can read the details here but the short version is that a rather over-zealous watchdog group named "Warriors of Innocence" has kamikazed LiveJournal by targeting communities and journals that have any mention of controversial terms such as:
This is all in an effort to curtail the rise in sex crimes related to children that occur through online sites and etc.
Obviously this community has a big fat target painted on its rear so I have taken the liberty as a moderator to augment any mention of "lolita" in our interests with the word "fashion". Hopefully this will clarify things and prevent the community from being banned to LJ Hell.
Without extensive social commentary I will say that the group's intentions are good and their strategy is bad. Instead of going out and doing some sort of delightfully violent mob action against the special wing of jail reserved for pedos (in which I would be a gleeful participant) they are going after people who are mainly Internet nerds and just want to carry out their interests peaceably without harming others.
However I recommend to community members that a revision of LJ interests would be a good idea as well as emails to LJ staff. I will be sending my own little email after this entry and I encourage all of you to do so. If you want to protect your freedoms to speech and thought it is not enough to just sit by and hope that the folks above do right by you. There are more of us than there are of zealots. And perhaps a nicely worded email to the "Warriors" would also be good. After all they *do* have good intentions. They're just a bit misguided.
Apologies to fellow mods for the sudden change, they hijacked two personal journals in the past hour so I'd rather play it safe.
And just to be on the safe side, no bloomer shots for a while, kiddies. Or anything which could be read as sexually provocative.
In fact just pose like Mana from now on. By a cross with your eyes cast upwards.
I also took a ton of pictures at the gathering at the tea room on Sunday and at the picnic in the convention center on Saturday. Unfortunately, those were on a different camera that currently needs to be recharged. For some reason someone stole our battery charger (I'm a little confused about what they'd do with it, seeing as how we still have our camera) so those won't be posted for at least a few days.

Thank you very much.
