Sorry if this is old news, but gothic lolita group Kokusyouke Sumire is playing right now at the Shibuya Future as part of a Firefox Music festival which is being streamed on the net for free. To view go here: http://www.firefoxfestival.com/top_en.html
Update: They actually just did a soundcheck and there is a Firefox rep doing a presentation, they'll start performing in a few I think
If anyone missed out before due to the bandwidth exploding, or if you forgot to save the photos of yourself, know that the images have been restored thanks to cidsa volunteering to host them and saving us from Photobucket's vile ways.
So, I'm an advid knitter. I love going to the books store and looking through the newest knitting books to see if anything strikes my fancy. (I have a point, hang in there!) So I see this book, "pretty in punk" which looks like this:
I pick it up to flip through it and then I find this:
A knitted corset for the "newest trend in punk rock, the gothic lolita". Pretty lulzy. You should all go take a look at it. Their myspace is here. lol
So, my recent obsession has been lolita jewelry. Especially rings. I've really been lusting after this:
in particular... but (to give you an idea of my personal taste) I also love this BTSSB ring, and this IW ring in silver. The problem is- I have chubby little kid fingers. I wear a US size 8 which, according to an online converter is a JPN size 16... and it doesn't look like brand rings really go up that high. I don't really know anything about jewelry at all, and much less lolita brand jewelry so I have a few questions you all:
Firstly, from your experience- how is the quality of brand jewelry? I know they are pretty cheap but what are they made out of? somehow I doubt that most are actually sterling silver- but just some shiny plate.
Second- do you know of any lolita brand jewelry that might be able to fit my chunky baby fingers? I know IW makes adjustable rings- but don't they tend to break? What do you think about the adjustable rings?
Thirdly- If I found something I really fell out for and it was decent quality, would it be worth it to take it to a jeweler and have them extend the band a little bit? Or perhaps I could get a replica made- like they do for VW stuff. The only problem with that is that I really don't know what to expect cost wise- and I know most lolita jewelry has some sort of engraving and I wouldn't really want to mess it up. I'm into silver- so I don't think the colouring should be too hard to work with.
Should I just give up and stick to necklaces, bracelets, and hairpins? Should I just buy some cheapo lolitable stuff from claires? Should I just chop off my fingers all together? I hope someone could shed some light on this subject.
hi i am thinking of buying a dress from ebay user "cosplay007" has anyone bought from them before, and if so, should i buy or run away? here is the link, if anyone wants to look and say whether it looks okay or not LINK thanks for your help!!!
So I was at the OIONE baby store in Shinjuku and there were these Pearl chandelier shoes in WHITE that I wanted so much to buy but the baby online store says they're SOLD OUT. However, they're only available in size S. T___T
Irritated and miffed, I bought shoes from a local shoe store back home (in Singapore) and stuck on baby's white shoe clips.
is the next btssb embroidery series the virgin mary? i saw the pic of the one-piece in the latest kera maniax but wasn't entirely sure.
btw, for those interested, theres a new gosu rori out. its like a compiled version, so its thicker, but it doesn't have all the patterns of all the volumes that have been published so far. i don't think theres any new patterns in it, kinda hard to say because i didn't commit all the outfit/patterns to memory
