Skirt ID?

Edit: I was a fool, bodyline it is! Thanks everyone for your help! I've contacted Mai to see if there's a way to solve it!

Edit 2: Apperantly seller had written Mary Magdalene Taste! Taste got lost in the translation .___.''
But we cancelled it so I don't need to pay for the skirt! (I just get -1 feedback)

Ethnographic Lolita Research

Attention Portland Oregon Area Lolitas!

I am doing a research study on the subculture of Lolita, I found a few people and sent them messages individually, then I decided there were just too many people to pick through and figured it would be better to try and find volunteers. I live in Portland and attend Portland State University as a Sociology major German minor.

My study is focusing on the histories of those who ascribe to the Lolita subculture as well as the interactions that happen within the groups. I want to get together with people where I will have a tape recorder and ask a few pre-written questions otherwise the interviews are ment to turn on their own course. I can assure that all recordings will be destroyed after they are transcribed, and I can conceal identities if people would like me to. I want your Lolita story, not to put you in a place where you feel uncomfortable.

Other wise I am a 23 year old somewhere between sweet and gothic lolita who likes to eat cupcakes sew bake and watch movies. I am not a scary old man! I am just a research student!


PS I am also posting this on orlolipops board, sorry if you had to see it twice!

I am considering to wear Lolita for the first time at school?

I have been given two different answers for this from close friends. One person says I should wear it and express myself despite what people say.

However the other say that I should not because many people already do not like me at school - I do not even know why, I am not famaliar with even more then about 6 people. He says that they would give me a hard time.

I go to a Catholic High School of about 500 students, I am a freshman. I planned to wear a simple gothic Lolita outfit.

Have you been in my situation?

Do you have any advice you would like to give?

I would really appreciate it.

My problem was resolved today. I wore my Lolita outfit to school (it was a dress down day) and a majority of people thought I looked so cute. Thank you all, espically the first 16 posters, you really helped me feel not afriad and all of you gave me unqiue courage thanks again!

Am I really alone out here?

I've been meaning to post something here for the longest time now.

It's a pretty simple question. Are there any lolitas in Idaho? (or Eastern Oregon) I feel so alone here because I can't find anyone. ;~; Since there isn't a community, I can't get in contact with anyone easily.  I would love it if I could find someone to meet up with from time to time. *crosses fingers*

I'm an hour away from Boise and right across the river from Oregon.

Thank you! ^_^


i would like some sizing help (why else would i post ? ( ̄Д ̄) )

i'm interested in getting a jsk from baby , this one . iofficially , the bust goes up to 98cm . i just wanted to know how strict baby's sizing is . do you think this jsk will go up to 100cm - 101cm ?

and another question .
just as opinions go , does anyone have ap's dream cherry ? what do you think of it ? how does it look when it's worn ? does it look really short ? i thought about getting the dream cherry over the baby jsk (even though , style wise they differ quite a lot) because it fits up to a 100cm bust which sounds a little safer (that said , i did buy a 98cm bust ap miracle candy which fits me okay)
if anyone else has opinions , hit me up ( ^ U ^ ) 

thanks ~
