Question about three "indie" brands

I've been looking into Sincerely, Moon Afternoon, and Angel Fish, all of which are small Classic Lolita/Natural Kei brands that don't ship overseas. While Sincerely has a "shopping cart" system, both Moon Afternoon and Angel Fish appear to be email-based, which makes me wonder if most shopping services will make orders to them. Has anyone had any experience with this kind of thing? If so, are the fees more expensive than usual -- enough so that I should just wait and see if Moon Afternoon really does manage to make an order system for foreign customers?

Finally, has anyone actually ordered from these brands before? I've been looking for reviews, but only found a dead link to Celga and a bunch of posts asking how to order from the brands. Any help is appreciated!

The Doll: Themed Short Story


This is my first time posting for a theme, so I hope this is good... I thought, seeing as how it's coming up quickly to Halloween, I'd dig this old short story out from the dusty bowels of my computer.

It's a short story about a young lolita who has this freaky doll. I can't say much more without spoiling the rest of it. It's not very long (being a short story :D) but I hope it's enjoyable. I thought I'd combine the two themes for this month. It's slightly creepy, but nothing gory ;D

And without further ado, my story, The Doll.

Ita? I hope not.

Why hello hello. /insert fish face/
There's a part of me that tells me, "honey, you're doing this right. Not ita at all." But I really need some reassurance and possibly some con-crit pretty prease. This is the FIRST time I've worn my lolita outfit/s out and I was really anxious all day. Ohh, and overall I'm just not photogenic.

Lolita meet up for expo?

Hey guys, just wondering if anyone is interested in meeting up at the beginning of the MCM Expo on the Saturday 30th October.
We could meet by one of the entrance (the little bit outside the toilets on the ground floor, if you know what I mean)
Please tell me if you would like to meet, what time is best and if you have a better place we could meet.
Just wanted to have a frilly congregation ♥
