"An offensive term for a boy or man who is considered not to exhibit stereotypical masculine behavior, especially by other boys or men". I've inferred from context that it's still negative but that's about all I could figure out. I've searched onelook.com and only found variations on the definition above. What do exactly people mean by sissy here?
I was thinking today about the old photo challenge where everyone was showing pics of their closets today and it got me thinking - taking photos is one thing but it becomes a little over whelming seeing all that brand in one place so I was wondering . . .
What's your closet break down by numbers?
______ number JSK
______ number OP
and so on.
This is meant to be just a silly way to strut your stuff, plus I'm incurably nosey when it comes to other peoples closets.
As this weekend draws near, I wanted to remind everyone I will be there at the Midnight Syndicate table (or walking around somewhere). Please come by & say hi if you get a chance. I will have some birthday cake (yellow w/buttercream - YUMMMM!!!!) and you are most welcome to have a piece. However, I probably won't have it Sunday as it will probably be eaten by then. Hope to see you!
As I started writing my fashion article on lolita, it occurred to me that I've only seen one loli with a train on her dress (it was actually her wedding dress, so maybe it was just egl-influenced?), even though the late Victorian era shows trains as an important part of (half of the) outfits to elongate.
SO, long story short: Is a train on an outfit 'lolita (elegant, aristocrat, or otherwise)', or is that too period? What about gloves?
LoligothUK would like to present it's first monthly theme: Rainy Days
Strange but very apt, it seems the UK can easily pull off a theme like rainy days in the middle of summer. We are looking for people to post things in light of the current UK weather, rainy lolita. It's an excuse to run outside with an umbrella, try to lolify some welly boots, post artwork, photos which are new or old.
We are happy for all lolitas to take part, and would especially like lolitas in or visiting the UK to contribute. This theme will run until the end of September and hopefully we can return here with some great highlights to show you all. Thank you very much!
(loligothuk is the largest community for Gothic & Lolita fashion in the UK - we are going through a revamp at the moment, and would love fresh members with suggestions for fun community activities.)
Just to let you know right now, the New York Anime Festival will be at the Jacob Javitz Center, NY, NY. The Lolita Panel will be on Sunday, December 9th from 4 PM to 5 PM.
I'm hoping that either before or after the panel, there would be a private (keyword: private, as in no otakus or random people following us and sitting with us) lunch/dinner session. In the next few weeks I'll be looking into nearby restaurants that will be big enough, and will give us enough space for cheap. I will get back to you on that later.
If you know you are definitely going or are going to try their best to come (to the lunch/dinner), please comment so I can get an estimate of how many I should expect to come to the restaurant. ^^
But anyways, right now the challenge is finding enough people (mostly in NYC or the Tristate area) to be working at the panel with me.

So basically since i haven't been able to sell it i have decided it is time to think about a solution and i need help. ^_^;

We're having an art contest for a new layout over on uk_lolitas, and we'd love it if you guys got involved! Some little prizes are up for grabs (the top prize being a burando accessory!), not to mention a means of showcasing your art.
