Question about Styles and sizes~

I have a question for everyone.
I've noticed that for the most part sweet lolita seems to be the most popular style, and it also offers a better variety of sizes.
If brands offered bigger sizes in classic and other styles would you be interested in trying these styles of lolita? Or like .. more tailored types of lolita? 
(I'm trying to figure some things out for a friend of mine who wants to start making and selling lolita clothing ^^) 
Also if anyone can tell me what types of things you'd like to see people making and selling, like if there's a paticular style that may be too much money or doesn't offer much size flexibility that you'd like so see somewhat recreated ( not identical but something similar ^^) 
Thanks for everyone's input in advance !

States sales Tax on online on online orders is starting up.

I have been seeing on the news and reading various articles in the papers and online that  the USA government is seriously considering implementing state taxes for online purchases. They way they are explaining it you will be required to pay sales taxes of your state even when purchasing from another state or abroad.   Were you usually pay for the state you're buying from I believe now it's that if you purchase something from a place you have to pay "your" states tax.  I thought it'd be a good thing to know for all of you out there making online purchases. These will be state taxes and will only be required from those purchasing from stores, BtSSB, Angelic Pretty, etc; if implemented it will also be put on those running small businesses like Candy Violet.  However those purchasing used items on ELG _Sales will not have to be files because it's not exactly a store.   They are not being clear as to wether or not you will have to file in those taxes at the end of the year with your usual or if they will be put on the sites but as I said the plans are not completed yet.

Because the plans are not fully decided upon, it is unclear exactly how it will work, however I thought it was a good thing to tell you ladies and gentlemen that way you'd at least be aware and able to read up on it yourself.

As of June 1st (For those of you buying Gothic Lolita bibles and other books or items on there) Amazon will begin charging state taxes to those purchasing within New York, charging you the amount of tax that you would have to pay if you were purchasing the items from within your state.

Sorry to post this up before the plans have even been decided upon however it's always good to know what's going to happen or what's about to happen. It leaves people time to prepare and such.

I want a booth at an anime convention, but I have never done it before. Lots of questions!

When I was at the Oni-con in Houston a month ago, I saw all the tables of people selling things they made and thought that this is something I'd like to do. I have a lot of experience sewing and I thought I could make some extra money selling hair bows, bonnets, candy plush hair clips, felt dessert pins and hair clips and head-dresses. I've also seen some people selling their artwork and dessert jewelry. Here are my questions:

1) Do you make good money selling prints of artworks you made?
2) what is a good amount of each item you should have in your inventory?
3) Is it very expensive to have a booth or table - as in the fee you have to pay to sell things?
4) How do you make dessert jewelry? (I assumed it was a combination of clay, plastic beads and silicon formed into whipped cream with a pastry bag)
5) where do you get supplies to make dessert jewelry?
6) in the end, is the money worth all the work?
7) Do hand made dresses sell very well?

If you have any other advice that wasn't mentioned in my questions, or if it was, any advice or answers would be very much appreciated. Thanx for reading :D
