Wigland

Hello EGL, I am in dire need of some advice/review on PRISILA wigs.

I ordered THIS Prisila wig from Wigland. I should have done more research before hand. But after placing the order, I browsed around the 'net looking for pictures of Prisila wigs and I found these pics that basically show Prisila wigs are really thin!! I'm really nervous and concerned about my order now, I was really expecting the wigs to be fuller.

I was wondering if I can get more reviews on this brand, are they all this thin? I'm afraid that even just one chunk out of place, the cap would show -__-

And what about the brand Malibu (wigland also carries them), does anyone own wigs from that brand?

Thanks a lot!!



ps. thanks for all the suggestions and help, extremely appreciate it.

Imogen heap's style?

I was just wondering how many think Imogen Heap's style is kind-of lolita?
Would you think it's kind of punk lolita or something else?
I was watching her "Headlock" MV and I like some of her dresses. I think her style is adorable. I personally love the mess.

This is purely for conversational purposes.

photoshoot; Autumn Memories

Hello all you lovely ladies and gentlemen, how has your autumn been so far?
I hope all have been spared from the flu and that it hasn't been too chilly!

I recently moved to Turku and after living here for two months, halktia and I thought it's time for a photoshoot in the lovely historical parts of the city, especially as the trees are getting colourful and that just screams for shooting, don't you think?

Without further ado, please enjoy our pictures.

Got my first dress!


So I talked my co-workers into a lolita tea party for halloween. I showed them some old lolita bibles I had and they loved the idea. Since I'm making good money these days I decided to finally buy my first dress.

 

I bought it, and got a huge deal on it (with shipping I paid $40 in total). And then I read the beware of ebay thread...and got really nervous. My seller wasn't on the list, but I was still concerned about quality and picture stealing.

My dress arrived today and I love it! The construction is rock solid, the fabric quality is really good (little worried about washing and drying though. It is cotton and shrinking is a concern) and it fits pretty well. A little tight in the bust area but that's normal for me. If I ever bought anything that fit exactly I think I'd die. Plus it might jump start my weight loss when the fiance goes to Iraq so I can fit into it better.

I tried it on in my office and flitted around in it. Everyone thought it was cute and I'm nuts, but hey, they knew that already.

Attention Puget Sound Lolitas~!

I WOULD LOVE TO DO PHOTOSHOOTS FOR FREE!

The catch? I live in Everett, but I'll be moving to Silverdale late October. I don't mind driving a bit, if you don't mind a little baby coming for a ride (he turns 1 this friday, woo!)

My credentials? I'm an official US Navy photographer. (Actually, that's only part of my job. I'm a Mass Communication Specialist and I cover photography, journalism, broadcasting, radio, graphic/web design, Public Affairs, etc)

My motive? One, I love photography. Two, I would loooove to take pictures of all of you. Three, I am building a portfolio for my package to send off and Maybe be selected for one of the military seats in the Photojournalism courses at Syracuse. Four, I STILL WANT TO TAKE PHOTOS OF YOU.

Just comment below if you are interested, even a teensy bit and I'll message you about making future plans.


Thank you all~<3

Let's Do a EGL Time Warp

 

While tagging the old entries of [info]egl , I discovered this recipe off of one of the Japanese GLB. I just thought you would enjoy a bit of nostalgia I'm experiencing. This is from the translation of the comm member that posted, complete with scanned pic.

Strawberry Cheesecake Candles




I cleaned up the original recipe translation quite a bit for clarity.


120 g cream cheese (4.2 oz)
10 g gelatin (0.4 oz)
50 ml water (3.38 tablespoons)
50 g milk (1.75 oz)
45 g sugar (1.6 oz)
Juice of ¼ of a lemon
170 ml fresh cream (3/4 cup)
2 strawberries
50 g sugar (1.75 oz)
1 tablespoon water


100 ml fresh cream (1/2 cup)
8 g sugar (0.3 oz)
Splash of vanilla extract

*Soak gelatin in water for 15 minutes. Put cream cheese in a bowl to soften. Remove the stems from the strawberries, wash, and pat dry.

Mix milk and sugar in the pot, bring to a boil. Remove from heat and add gelatin until melted.

In a separate bowl add the cream and rest on another bowl filled with ice water for 6 minutes. Add the cream cheese.

Add lemon juice to the milk and sugar mixture, then combine into the cream cheese.

In a separate bowl add the cream and rest on another bowl filled with ice water for 6 minutes. Add the cream cheese.

Add lemon juice to the milk and sugar mixture, then combine into the cream cheese.  Before it settles, fill the glass containers with the mixture and chill in the refrigerator.

To make the caramel strawberries, Mix the sugar and a tablespoon of water in a pot over heat. When it caramelizes and changes color, add more water. Coat the strawberries thoroughly and evenly. Using a bamboo skewer pushed into the strawberry, coat the strawberry thoroughly with caramel. It is easiest when this is done while tipping the pot. Place standing in a cup or container and refrigerate. Once chilled, heat the bottom of the cup by placing it in a deep bowl of hot water. Slip it from the cup and place it on a plate.

In a bowl, mix cream, sugar, and vanilla extract, and place over a bowl of ice water. Let stand for 6 minutes. Pour over the cheesecake and top with the strawberry.

Make 2 cheesecake candles.
