Quality on Cinderella Dreamland Blouses (Taobao Shop)

Here are the blouses I'm considering getting


If you've bought from them before, let me know how it worked out. Like, did the item look like the photo, was the quality good, was sizing accurately described on the site, etc...?

There aren't any reviews for them on EGL that I could find using the search function or that link to various taobao reviews.

How to save false nails?

I am going to decorate false nails!  ^.^  I am going to use kiss false nails to decorate (since it was cheaper)  but the glue in which it came with says acetone to remove it :( but that would ruin the false nails.  I want to actually keep the nails just in case I would want to wear them again.  I hear about double sided nail tape but I can not find a place that wold sell a good amount of it at a reasonable price.  So if you know a place that does, then that would be helpful.  I know I am not the only one here who has deco nails and then wanted to save them for other days for them to be worn, so what methods do you use to save false nails?  

A Lolita need YOUR votes! :)

Hi fellow lolitas in crime.
I come her as a simple lolita and fairy kei lover.

IKEA Sweden have made a contest were you can get a chance to show your designs and even win money to get your own store.
I decided that I wanted to join and show Sweden that everything is not  all black and gray in the design world.

You were suppose to show a small collection with some of your pieces.
Now the thing is that I need votes so that my collection could get a chance with the jury.

I would be so thankful if as many of you could vote for my Sweet/Sweet OTT and fairy kei  inspired collection.

Click on the image, let the page load and then click *Gilla* and vote for me.

Thanks so much you guys! :)

Some news bytes

Not sure if anyone's mentioned it at all, but I didn't see these things when I used the search option for egl.

For people in New York, the Museum at FIT has an exhibit called Japan Fashion Now until January. Covers a pretty wide range, but does include various alternative fashion designers, including egl styles. Sure, you don't need an exhibit to see Baby, h.Naoto, and BPN clothes, but it could be fun and hey, it's in a museum so you can file it under culture. X3

For people in San Francisco, the Black Peace Now store in Japantown is looking for a part time worker X3 So if you're handy, and you're gothy, and you need some extra money, could possibly be worth your time to look into it.

For people who did Kera Snaps at the Fantaisies event in San Jose earlier this Spring, selected photos were printed in issue 37 of Gothic & Lolita Bible, on sale now. The few who were chosen to be printed look lovely and represent the US loli comm pretty well X3

Now go return to your lives ♥ X3
