San Jose, CA lolies??

Hi ladies (& g'ents)<3

I'm planning a lolita picnic w/ a few of my friends and some lolitas I know from the myspace Lolita Fashion group.
Are there any other lolitas from the Bay Area that would be interested in attending?

It's either going to be June 21st or 22nd.

Let me know if any of you are interested and i will post more details<3 .9_9.

I have a Question.

I love Lolita. I also love Tattoo's. I have a large Sailor Jerry chest piece, and plans for much expansion. Is this a combustible conflict of interest? Should I keep my tattoo's covered at all times in Lolita? Thank you in advance.

Looking for silly beauty tips

(Hopefully LJ will let me post this. Damn you DDOS!)

Since I know no other group who primp quite as much as we lolitas do, I figured I might as well ask here. Besides the obvious answer of, "Get more sleep!" how do you go about ridding yourself of bags under your eyes? Not dark circles, or I'd use concealer--bags. As some of you may notice in my photo posts, I look tired and squinty most of the time because of them!

What's a quick fix before an outing to "deflate" them?

Sewing for Dummies

Ok so I've never sewed anything apart from amateur pillows and little accessories such as headdresses and other simple stuff.  I really want to take sewing a little more seriously and actually sew dresses and what not.  Sadly, there's no 'sewing for beginners' classes close to where I live and I don't really feel like taking classes.  Does anybody know any good books to help me get started on sewing garments?

Breaking the so-called taboos

All this talk about body image and lifestyle lately has got me thinking. Somewhere out there, there is some ridiculous ideal that not one of us perfectly fits. We are a diverse group, and diversity calls for re-evaluating the ideals.

So what are some things about you that make you less of an ideal lolita (in the eyes of certain people)? I'm not talking about things like "I don't own brand." I'm talking about the ideals about what kind of person can be a lolita. Do you smoke? Have dark skin? Pale skin? Overweight? Underweight? Tattooed? Dyed hair? If my theory is correct, every one of us has some so-called "flaw" such as this.

I'll start. I am not lolita because:
- I wear glasses.
- I am too thin.
- I swear like a sailor.
- I drink beer. And rum and vodka and...
- I work for my money.
- I am sexual.

This is just supposed to be for fun, so let's not all get hung up on who says what is or is not lolita. And to remind us all that nobody suits the perfect ideal image, and that is okay. Lolitas of all shapes and sizes are beautiful people.

Edit: I love you all. There's some great (and hilarious) answers in here. I'd like to think that we can be proud of how diverse this group is.

Bust minimizing...

Is there some way to make your bust smaller, and what are the most inches that you can take off?
I am completely in love with a certain non-shirred Meta dress, but my bust it almost 3 inches too large! D: Is there any way to smash my boobs down to fit in to it, or am I just going to have to go the treadmill?

I know weight loss is the best answer, but I just wanted to know if there was some other quick solution...

Your Opinion?

Ok, so I've been recently watching an anime called Yamato Nadeshiko Shichi Henge a.k.a. Wallflower; and I know some loli's here know this, but they incorporate these 4 gothic lolita girls who follow around the main characters. The weird thing is..that they portray them as..well...hmm I'll let you guys decide:

And mostly everytime after they show these girls talking, they show a close-up of the girls crossing their fingers and saying "Goth Goth Loli Loli" ><

I'm wondering if this is how people in japan think of lolitas :/

Lolita article for tokyopop

After reading that article about the GLBs being translated and the cosplay horror i decided to write them an email. They assured me that they will not call lolita cosplay and that they have a lot of respect for the lifestyle and it will be kept the same.
She also asked me if i could write a lolita article for them.. and well, im not really good at it. So I was wondering if someone else had a good article that they had written or want to write that i could send them(with your name on it of course) or that everyone could get together and make one?
and ideas?

Ok after reading everyones input
im thinking first everyone brainstorm topics and things you want to cover in the article
once we have our topics ill make a new post and delete this one where people will get to choose a topic. More than one person can choose the same topic as long as all topics are coverd. Then we will combine it all into one awsome super article written by the lolita community.
Sound good?

This is a very belated post...

But, I finally found pictures from the Lolita "Fashion Show" from A-CEN. in Illinois. I was in it only because I was the only person who actually owns Alice and the Pirates anything. There was also a Tea Party the night before, and I've only found a couple of pictures from it, so I may post those later. Anyway! Here's the link to the "Fashion Show".
Here are the pictures of me:
I'll post the others later, I wore some Metamorphose too, but my friend hasn't givin me any better pictures spare a nice up the nose one with a partial BTSSB head piece shot >.< ( http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y94/crzymindlessfool/Meta.jpg )... hahaha. I need a new camera....
Just to add on to this one, I'll post some rather belated pic.s from Japan, etc. http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y94/crzymindlessfool/harajuku.jpg (MA hat/shirt, Sex Pot Revenge skirt), http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y94/crzymindlessfool/Allison.jpg (Dir en grey show, I was wearing an Atlidel skirt), http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y94/crzymindlessfool/SPRjacketback-1.jpg (I love that jacket, and Sex Pot in general).
Sorry the post is really long!

Alice fururun? Shopping question.


I was wondering if anyone has purchased items from Alice+Fururun (http://www.fururun.com/index.html), especially using a shopping service such as Celga. If you have, what was your experience like? I'm interested in ordering something, but I really don't know where to begin...

I know ordering through shopping service questions probably come up a lot, but this is also about the store. Please delete if this doesn't seem like a legitimate question. Thanks!


Nail Decals.

Hope I don't get in any trouble for posting twice in a week. I just thought of this now. :s
I'm asking this question on behalf of my mother. She's been looking for water based nail decals.
(You know the kind you dip in water, and slip on your nails.)

I haven't been able to find them in my town for the longest time.
I'm curious if they even exist anymore? And if so, where I could find them.

But, as always if this is irrelevant, just delete it.

Thank you. <3
