At Anime Expo we did a 5 person Pastel a la Mode photo shoot. I'm so happy we all got together for a shoot! We got a lot of group shots, some singles, and doubles. The photos start out all pretty and serious but by the time laila_astri and I get our turn....well you'll see.

So, armed with a good 20m of evil synthetic lace my mum gave me and not many ideas, I decided to make a simple punk lolita/h.Naoto inspired black dress. I found a basic pattern in my Gosu Rori mag and altered it a bit but didn't realise what kind of trouble I got myself into D:~ (To be honest, I am more into classic lolita and up til now only made classic lolita dresses/skirts =_=)
(Yeah, I know this isn't exactly goth lolita nor punk lolita - I don't even know how to classify this dress anymore so feel free to delete this post if it's not relevant XD;;)
what age is everyone and where they from
just got curious because funding for outfits have to be earned one way or another
I hope you can help me out :'( *sob*
I was going to get my brand new (1st brand) meta dress today, and it arrived at my house with a 70$ CUSTOMS FEE?!!? whats going on? please help me!!
If anyone knows of any other sites carrying lolita shoes in 11 I'd love to know!
p.s. i hope Avant Gauche gets back up and running soon. i miss it
Metamorphose have done a HUGE update, I want alot ^^
Just one tease..

I've found that the wedding section of craft stores has turned out to be quite useful. For example, the tops of my socks here are wedding garters that I attached to the socks!
But anyway, as I was browsing around in Michael's today, I found a VERY cute mini parasol for $9.99. Since it's in the wedding section, it's only in white. But if you're in a financial fix and you need a quick accessory for a sweet lolita outfit, this is probably a good idea for you! I can't find any photos of the parasol on the Michael's website, but it's all lace, and it looks most similar to this, but without the garish handle. And it's mini, so when opened, it's about 2 feet in diameter? Kind of like this. Anyway, if there's a Michael's near you, it's worth checking out.
I really wanted to get one, but I'm so broke that I can't even afford a $10 parasol xD how lame is that!
I hope this helped you out!
I was pleasently surprised.

Is it still being worked on or has the idea been abandoned?
So like, I'm a fairly stingy lolita. I have a budget of about 300 dollars every two weeks that has to meet all my needs.. for two weeks. >_>;
I'm a 15 year old girl living at home by the way. Just to clarify, it's solely for my own entertainment purposes, which are pretty minimal, but stretching it out over two weeks gets difficult. xD;
Also forgot to mention..
I'm paying 150 of that to my mother to pay back a laptop... which is gonna string out till the end of the summer. x_x;
Should have mentioned that. ^_^;
Seeing by the reactions.. I know I'm fortunate... but I work hard for it, and like I said, I'm a bit stingy and am looking for a good deal.
So what I'm asking is, what stores are gonna give me the best selection of clothing (under my budget)? I'm talking quality/price ratio here.
Also. Have size 10 Lolis ever ordered shoes from Ling Lam? <3 They're adorable but I fear they won't fit me.
