Master List of AX Lolita Meets, Vendors, and Artist Alley


I thought a compiling of all the meets going on at AX was needed to save time and effort of others sifting through the previous posts. Feel free to leave a comment of other meets happening ( Offical or Unoffical) and any vendors I may have missed. Will post again July 1st before I get on my flight. Hope this helps!

Photoshoot/Illustration: Guro-Aristocrat Queen of Hearts

Alice in Wonderland's Queen of Hearts scared me as a little kid because she was the first authority figure I'd seen who, rather than grounding little girls or taking away their toys, could order their heads chopped off.

Now, years later, I decided to try a "concept" shoot and re-imagine the Queen in a way that would creep me out as an adult as much as she did when I was a kid. I started planning it out and the Queen struck me as an Aristocrat more than a Lolita, and I decided to make her bloody and eyeless (a thing I find really disturbing) for a horror effect. My friends have enjoyed the final images, so I thought I'd share them with y'all. I hope you like them!

(A few notes: I'm not a pro, this was done for fun on a point-and-click camera, and heavily edited in Photoshop (Elements) for both horror and a nightmarish, surreal look. This is not meant to be cute and is pretty bloody and creepy, according to friends, so if you are weirded out by blood, eyelessness, or Guro/horror elements DO NOT CLICK THE CUT.)

If the mods feel this is too Guro for the community please let me know and I'll remove it.

any other lolita gamers??

So I was wondering if there are lolita gamers out there, and if they play the pokemon games (don't laugh, those games are actually kinda fun!)
I've been playing diamond and pearl for DS and I noticed a goth loli character!

now I could not find the pic they use in the guide, and I have no scanner so this picture from the card game will have to do. has anyone else noticed her or am I the only person that still plays pokemon games here.

*if this has been posted before please POLITELY let me know*

We're burando.. honest!

I was wandering down the highstreet today when I saw that Camden Lock market has reopened after a massive fire destroy most of it a year or so ago.

Now, Camden's always been the goth/punk/alternative sort of place, so when a company called Gothic Lolita Punk opened up a shop here I wasn't too surprised. We have two shops, one called Sai Sai and the other calling GLP. They're not too bad - the dresses are rip offs of others, but the shoes are usually decent, the shirts are good, and they sell some nice accessories and things. Actually, if you make accessories yourself they'll often place it in their shop for you. So they're not too bad, really, and a good place for girls wanting to get into lolita to check out. I still peruse their shops sometimes. It's like the Primark of egl.

Anyhoo, I noticed that a new shop has taken place on the high street, and when I noticed the name, I was a little shocked. They market themselves as lolita but most of the stuff on display was average raver gear, although there were a few good things at the back. But the name... oh the name, honeys, would make you laugh. And cry. Simultaneously.

*facepalms* Well, I guess it's the closest to burando we'll ever get here in London! XD

Poll / Idea: Including coordinates in the lolita stockphoto Flickr pool?

I was thinking, maybe we can use the lolita stockphotos as our hub for pictures / coordinates. Currently, there is a massive pool of lolita stock photos here: http://www.flickr.com/groups/lolita_stockphotos/. The pool is huge (10,000+ photos) and is frequently updated (Thank you QuinnSparrow and Flickr group members).

However, I think we can make more use out of it by adding pictures of coordinates into the comments of the stock photos like this: http://www.flickr.com/photos/26985461@N08/3329058904/

That way, we have a central and organized area to keep stock photos AND coordinates. Hopefully, this will reduce the "Photo request" posts I see fairly often here in the EGL community. Of course, I can't do this by myself so it would definitely be a united group effort.

So, I wanted to take a poll. What does everyone think of this idea?
Poll #1419699 Use lolita stock photo flickr account for coordinate pictures?

Is this a good idea?

Yes
91(70.5%)
No
25(19.4%)
Unsure
13(10.1%)

Would you help populate the coordinates / photos?

Yes
33(25.8%)
No
29(22.7%)
Maybe
66(51.6%)

So I was re-reading this wonderful entry out of my memories, when I read this line:

"... La Carmina leapt on stage during a Lolita fashion show at the NY Comic Convention..."

Does anyone has pictures or a video of this? I need a LOL :3

I like to read :3

I'm just curious because I like to read and look at nice pics for reference. :D

Does any anyone have links to the blogs of Sae's  Entourage? (XD) I already have Sae's and her boy friend's and I was wondering if the rest of them has blogs.

Thanks!

[art post] ZOMBIELITA

So, I was playing Left4Dead today. Then I started drawing... This is what happened. This isn't up to a finished standard, but I thought some of you might appreciate the comic value of this.

NOTE: Even if it is in black and white, I suppose this could be considered to have gore in it. If you are sensitive to that, then don't click.

some of you might hate me for this-- but is THIS lolita?

i came across this dress on ebay, as well as lots of similar ones. to me it looks very loli, though its a -gasp!- square dance dress!

so.. im wondering..... has anyone else crossed styles like this? Used a square dance dress for lolita? or maybe a vintage dress... some of the 50s dresses look kind of "loli" to me.

discuss? http://cgi.ebay.com/Vintage-green-square-dance-dress-Female-Leprechaun_W0QQitemZ200354687887QQcmdZViewItemQQptZAU_Costumes?hash=item2ea611eb8f&_trksid=p3286.c0.m14&_trkparms=65%3A12%7C66%3A2%7C39%3A1%7C72%3A1205%7C240%3A1318%7C301%3A0%7C293%3A1%7C294%3A50
