Lucky Packs on Sale in Two Hours?!?!

 Did anyone notice that Metamorphose posted the time for the lucky packs sale?? 

Lucky Pack will be available from around 5:00pm on June. 25th (Fri). 

According to my world clock that should be in about two hours. I was under the impression that it would be at midnight, but it's happening now! Maybe I can get some sleep ~_~ now that i'm not getting up in the morning and/or staying up all night. 
I just wanted to warn you ladies that the time has been greatly shortened! Bon chance on your lucky packs! Pray that I get a black one! XD

Meta LPs Shipping

Hi ^^ sorry if this has been asked before, but I'm trying to find out how long it usually takes for a Meta LP to arrive? I just ordered one of the 10,000 yen lucky packs and it says on the site they will be shipped on the 30th at the earliest. Does Meta normally send you an email once they ship out your item & will it have a tracking code? This is my first LP so I just don't know what to expect as far as how long it takes for the package to arrive and I'm moving to a new apartment in a little less then two weeks so I'm worried about it getting here before then.
Thanks for your help!

Digital Fabric Printing 101

Hello, lolis! I know there has been a growing interest in custom-printed fabric, especially among the seamstresses and designers here on EGL. Fashion-Incubator.com, a blog about sewing manufacturing, just published a guest article on digital fabric printing. It's a good balance between the technical, creative, and business sides of the process, and there are some great tutorial links at the bottom of the article! Hope this helps! ^o^/

Review: Bodyline Rocking Horse Shoes

I've never bought anything from Bodyline before, and I've always wanted a pair of RHS, so I thought "why not?" and ordered a pair as a birthday present to myself. I know someone else on here did a review of their RHS not too long ago, but I thought it might be a good idea to have another review of them (I bought them in a different style anyway).

Lots of pictures from the main portion of the Fancy French Event

I just realized that I only posted my pictures from the fashion show portion of the main day of Fantaisies dans le Monde des Rêves over here and never shared the rest of the photos from that day. All of the attendees were so friendly, sweet and super well dressed. You girls really made the event fun for me and I just wanted to say thanks to everyone that I hung out with, talked to briefly or let me take their picture.

Forgive me for being lazy and not including LJ names this time around. There's just so many photos and so many people that I only know their real life names, so to keep it simple I'm just sharing the photos w/o names for now.

My table, and the only picture I got of me in my outfit that day.

Remember, You're Never Fully Dressed Without A Smile

Over the years I've seen so many different "is this loli" or "can I make this lolita with some bows and frills" post on this comm. I just wanted to step in and say that I think one should wear what you like, whether some agree that it's lolita or not. Lolita is both a fashion and a style, it's a template. You can add things on and take things off. What's important is that you are happy with what you're doing. Whether that means having dreadlocks, flip-flops, frilly necklaces, etc. As long as they are things you like and you find it aesthetically pleasing, go for it! I personally adore my engineer boots, and I design skirts to go with them because it's what I like.

Lolita is something that is often frowned upon or looked at as different yet so many say you can and can't do things within it. I feel as long as you follow the basic silhouette, have fun and do what you want! There's no point in doing something if it involves taking all of who you are out of it. If you enjoy curled up wigs and pure Victorian Maiden outfit, go for it. If you don't, take what you do love and go with that. Have fun, life is way too serious without making clothing something to stress over.

EDIT: My point wasn't that anything and everything can be lolita, but that many things can be incorporated into it. Some say I am stating the obvious, I personally think that sometimes the "obvious" isn't really so.

HEART BETTANY

I want one in my yard!!!!

I noticed this link on Yahoo's main page which I am sure many of you have spotted, but for those of you who haven't seen it yet check it out!

This woman redecorated a little cabin on her property to look like a Victorian cottage. It only cost her $3,000 and she did it all herself! It is heavenly! I think any Lolita would want one as a little getaway place. Great place for photo ops, tea time, or even just chillaxing in your frills ;0D

Here is the article:

Here is a link to just the picture:

It kind of gives me that whole Marie Antoinette feel. She had that little cottage just to live the provincial life for fun.

Amazon Petticoat Ideas

I would like to buy a petticoat on Amazon. Are there any good petticoats I could buy? They need to be about 22 inches or so in length.

EDIT: I have been looking at amazon petticoats. I was just wondering if anyone had any suggestions. Or if someone knew of some good ones.

I Challenge You!

Inspired by the comments in this post, I started wondering: we all know there are some things which just CANNOT be lolified, but what about the things that can?  What about the things that never occurred to you to pair with a loli outfit, but turn out to be totally awesome?

So let's play a game!  Here's the challenge
1.) Find a totally un-lolita outfit
2.) Turn it into a wicked awesome lolita coord.  Use as many aspects of the non-loli coord as you can!
3.) Post post post!

The more articles of clothing you can incorporate, the more points you get.  The one who gets the most points can be crowned a Lolita Idol (ha, I even stuck one of the themes in here!).  This isn't meant to be serious, I just thought it might be fun to see how creative we can get!

So let's play!  Go all out, push the boundaries, show us what you're made of!
