Eat, Cute, Pear

Petticoats @_@

I'm a total newbie when it comes to wearing lolita, and I'm still trying to gather myself the basic essentials.

As far as the skirt and petticoat, how much fluff should there be? It seems variable according to everyone's tastes, but what's considered too much? When I try mine out, it puffs almost more than half a foot around me and feels huge. ^^;

Any tips on how to defluff petticoats? I've tried sitting on mine. XD Will steam work at all or is that a huge no because of the polyester tulle?

Edit: I'm also needing to straighten it out so that it looks more straight and uniform and not so crinkly, even when looking at the skirt above it. ^^;

Thanks for the advice!

Lol"ita" experiment.

I was bored today and I decided to challenge myself to coordinate something that would ordinarily be a GIANT NO and make it into a HELL YES. Or at least a tentative yes. Or at least not eye-bleedingly terrible. So I went through my closet and accessories to find a bunch of things that would normally make the lolita gods cry, and I put them together to see if I could pull it off.

If nothing else, it was a fun way to spend half an hour! You can judge if it was a successful experiment, but it was a success at giving me something to do, so I'm happy.

I've had no formal training, I'm actually studying languages and literature xD I draw mostly during classes. It's not a great drawing, but it's kind of cute I think :3 I hope you like it!

Shana Logic Headbow & Twitter

Didn't see this posted earlier, so I'm posting it now: shanalogic.com is now offering headbows in black x black and red x black. I've always been a fan of Shanalogic, so this is especially neat for me.

Also. Are there any lolitas out there who use Twitter to talk about lolita? (I don't mean people who tweet about their daily lives and happen to be lolitas, but people who specifically use Twitter as a lolita microblog.)

SO this weekend I stayed over at my friend's (batcheeks) place and today we found some time to work on my portefolio and I wanted to share some of them with you.
Though I think I made a few lovely photo's I am planning to use the FIRST close-up for my portefolio ONLY.

Hope you like them Rory-chan~ ♥

(EDIT: It's not me on the photo's it is all Aurora-chan, I am just the photographer!)
