[Dir en grey] Die [Placid]

Final Major Project..

So seeing as I've finished all my work for my fashion course now, I thought I'd have a go at showing off my work.

My Final Major Project was the last project [as the title would suggest] I did in the course, and we were meant to make our own brief for the project.
So, thinking that I wanted something in the final show that you'd look at and go "Oh, that's Andii's work!", I decided to base my whole project on the theme of 'MONOMANIA', which, much like the brand that I stole the name from, would be all about monotonous garments, which in turn would allow me to use my favourite thing in the world - polka dots.

Too pink, or expensive, or overly cute, or what else?

I'm curious as to how many of you have had your parents, grandparents or boyfriends into the Baby store in either SanFran or Paris, and if they had any remarkable opinion about the store.

My father went into the Baby store in SanFran two or three weeks ago, while he was in the city, and he said it wasn't 'too overwhelmingly pink, and the building outside looked boresome and not very lolita at all'. He was helped by princesaru (I instantly knew who it was when he said 'that really girly guy wearing... stuff?'... oooh parents - not to mention he was pretty much blown away when I knew who it was, but I just know who he is because of the pictures I've seen in the community of the SanFran events and stuff) so he could get a couple of things I couldn't buy at the Baby webstore. Overall, he said it was a nice experience, that he got a bit confused trying to find the store but that the attention was perfect. They couldn't find the model of the socks that I wanted, but Saru found a similar pair that I like even more and will wear tomorrow most likely :')

What are your family's thoughts about lolita stores and what have they got there for you?

Baby SF Store Tea Party Question

Hi! I'm going to be in San Francisco at the time of the upcoming Baby tea party on the 27th, and I was wondering, do the tickets for these kinds of events usually sell out quickly? I understand that there are only 70 tickets that have gone on sale as of the 1st of the month, and that it is only one ticket per person. Would it be possible for me to go? I'm getting there on the 25th and I'm afraid the tickets would be sold out by then. :/ Thank you so much!

Bonnet...stiffening?

Hye girls.

I have a version of this Mary Magdalene bonnet. I assume mine is an older version as it is made of a different material.

I got my bonnet second-hand and it is in generally good condition except that it's a little... wrinkled?

I would like to know how to get it to look stiffer/neater (re the picture on the website). Is there some sort of spray I can use? Another way I thought of was to put some support like cardboard as a lining, but that makes it a tad uncomfortable to wear.

Also, is there anyway to clean the bonnet? I think the seller mentioned something about steam-cleaning? I'm not sure what material it's made of, but it's definitely not like the velvet/velveteen used in the stock photos.

I apologize if these are obvious questions but I checked the memories and did a search and nothing turned up. Thank you! :)

Play it safe or risk it?

Once I tried to purchase some thing from Bodyline, before I was redirected to the Paypal message I got this warning from Firefox:

What should I do, risk it or not ? I've never had this problem before on my mac. I'm worried incase something happens like before stated in the warning. I shall delete this once answered.

EDIT: Emailing Bodyline to see if they can tell me whats going on, and when they are going to sort it out.

Theme Post: the offbrand glories you can find in dirt cheap stores.

I dropped in Ross today to see if I could find some stuff for college (ahhh, fast approaching D:) that was cute, cheap, and would make nice additions to my room. Instead, I found a surprising goldmine of stuff for casual loli. I never have enough blouses to wear to class, and I never want to wear any of my fancier stuff for fear of the destructive unknown.

OH, and happy RED, WHITE, and BLOOMERS day, US lolis <3

Strange Print Ideas

Well, on the notice made about the AP ice cream headbands a funny conversation about squid/tentacle themed loli-wear inspired me to post.

So, here's the question: Have you ever thought of a really strange print that you think would be amazing to have on a lolita dress/skirt or a theme for accessories and the like?
