The things lolita does to you... (blame game)

Recently I have noticed an unhealthy obsession on my part when it comes to lolita. Not only has it affected my sleep schedule (am I the only loser who looks till two in the morning for something my stupid measurements, picky mind, and empty wallet can agree on?), but my homework isn't being done like it used to be. So it got me thinking... how many other girls have this problem? Has lolita really screwed others over in some way or form? 

Whether lolita makes you feel fat, ugly, neglect your pets, or forget your 10th year anniversary the day Baby's lucky packs go on sale, post what bad things, or laughable things, lolita has done to you!

WARNING: This post is for fun to say all the negative things you've encountered after becoming interested in lolita or becoming a lolita. This is NOT to say "you need to fix that problem" or "ur so stupID 4 bein tat way." If this offends any mods, feel free to delete it, but we really don't need anyone gnawing anyone else's face off because they don't agree with them. Everyone should be allowed to get out their frustration sometime, and be able to relate to someone else~ So again, this is a pity party, have fun~

 So, what happened, or what is wrong with you, since lolita came into your life?

Edit: Oh my gosh so many posts xD Mass reply to everyone: I totally agree with half the stuff everyone is saying, I do the same! I got some laughs too because I really feel the same.. one was about how they should be spending time with their loved one, but they check egl first? amen..

The most important thing?

Hello~  
I'm studying fibres/textile design and fashion at Uni and am in the midst of building my own loli label so I'm doing a bit of research on what the majority looks for when buying clothes + it's really helpful for my research journal. Obviously it will be very different for everyone buuut I'm still very interested to know! Please feel free to comment with any influences you might have or poll question suggestions etc :) 

Thanks for your time \(^ 3 ^)/

Thanks again! <3

Petticoat length?

I searched the memories but couldn't find the answer to my question, if this is irrevlevant the mods can feel free to delete it.

I am a new Lolita and have been searching for a decent petticoat but the one problem I'm having is they are insanely short and I have stupidly long legs! My skirts have to be around 26 inches to cover my knees and wearing a 16-19 inch petticoat would probably not be appropriate. Does anyone have any suggestions or perhaps western stores that sell slightly longer petticoats?

Any help would be greatly appreciated and thank you for reading!
