I had a few friends over today for lunch to catch up, chatter and have a small scale celebration of one of our birthdays ^^ I made an absolute ton of sushi, onigiri and spring rolls for the less adventurous ;P and the others brought sweets. The girls brought some of their BJDs and it was a pretty fun day XD
As I showed a few days ago in this post about my sewing room, I've been working on a blue and white ruffled bustle skirt. Well, it's finally finished so I thought I'd post a few photos of the final details. I also went out shopping in lolita a few days ago, so there's a photo of my outfit as well. ( Collapse )
Ooookay I have been lurking around EGL for about half a year now, but I've never posted because I have yet to actually make/buy anything that is remotely related to lolita, but what I HAVE done is drawn a picture of a dress I decided looked too good not to draw. xD
Is it just me or did the actual coats *not* have long fur as seen on the sample coats (weblog)? I've seen a bunch of these coats come up on Yahoo! Japan/MBOK and none have the super long fur as seen in their weblog. (For weblog photos, please see the AngelicPoodle post linked above).
Any stock photos of this coat? I don't see any on Flickr, Photobucket, Google, etc. and I've been looking into Winter coats...
So there isn't a comm for Norcal/SF lolitas (if so, please let me know and I'll delete this post). I can't be the only one here! There are a TON of bay area events we can meet up at :) Give me a shout-out, we gotta get organized. Thanks for your help!
Hey, my name is Cara and I've recently decided to make my own sweet Lolita outfit!! I looked through one of the Gothic and Lolita Bibles and I think the styles of Lolita clothing are really cool. Can any of you more experienced EGL ladies give me tips/instructions on how to make my very own outfit? I prefer to make my own because I'm only 14 and my allowance is very limited and I want to avoid the brand-new costume-y look and I want my clothes to look like I wear them everyday. Can I get a list of essentials and stuff? I only know how to sew by hand and I haven't used patterns before but I'm willing to learn. Also do you know of any EGL stores in the New York City area? I really appreciate everything. BTW, all of you look awesome in your Gothic Lolita dresses!!!
