Hey there lolitas! I know a lot of us collect lolita items and specific brand or offbrand things, but do you collect anything specific or something outside of lolita? Stamps? Magazines? Books? Keys? Photos? Scraps? Etc. I want to see photos or hear of your collections! Read more...Collapse )
wtf
Hi! Today I bring to your attention a special autumn piece and some older designs that I yet didn't have a chance to photograph. Todays post is small and for classic and the gothic crowd.

I would like a quick review. I, myself, owned only a prima-h wig from Gabalnara before and I would like to know how big is the quality difference between the two options. I don't need it to be able to stand the high temperature, so that is not a problem. Is it klasse look cheap, costume wig or is it okay for everyday wear ?

Thank you very much !

Is there a right and wrong way of doing OTT sweet?
Can I just go crazy with the accessorises on my hair and on my clothes?
I'm guessing there is a point where you have to stop -- e.g. can't see hair/dress/blouse.

There will be an event at school -- Pink Ribbon Day -- where the students can wear as many pink things as they can with their uniform.
I'm hoping to do a cotton candy-like hairstyle with OTT sweet accessorises in my hair. :)

So a few days ago I did a photoshoot of my two newest Lolita dresses. On was made into Hime, the other Sweet. And then I dragged my cute Lolita protege and made her dress in Sweet. She's going to be Gothic btw. Still waiting for her dresses.

Hi everyone, I remember some people wondering where they can get loliable hair sticks. There's no real guarantee that you will find loliable hairsticks on taobao, but if you do want to do a search on taobao for hair sticks, you just need to copy and paste these two characters into the taobao search bar.

Happy searching!
Hello, EGL!

I feel like I'm posting a lot, but I need help with this and I know you can answer my question(s).

I'm going to Fright Fest on sunday, and i'll be wearing a Gothic Loli skirt and blouse outfit. My question is: If you were going to Six Flags, would you wear a petticoat? I know Petticoats make the look and all, but I'm just afraid of them getting messed up or crushed.

Also, I'm going to be wearing a Hime outfit for my halloween homecoming dance, and if any girls have reference pictures they could share here, I would greatly appreciate it. I've researched it a lot, but I don't feel like I've accumulated enough References.

Thank you!

Just looking for some stray Connecticut lolitas! Our local LJ community, ctonthefrills , has been pretty desolate for the past year, so we recently decided to make the move to Facebook since there actually are a fair number of us for such a little state. So, if you're a Lolita in the CT area and didn't even know we had an LJ comm, check out the Connecticut on the Frills Facebook group.

To bribe everyone into joining we're hosting a small gift exchange for the locals. It will be a through-the-mail gift swap, no meetup required, so even those located a little too far away, or in the middle of nowhere, can easily join in on the swappy goodness. Details about the swap are posted both on the LJ comm and the FB group.

Posting this with a mods permission, since it's basically advertising a community!
It's an old video (like 4 years ago, new to me though), not sure how many people have seen it yet, but I just thought it was interesting.

I used to love AOTS, and the old G4TV, but now I don't even watch TV.

 I have a feeling this might be a sensitive topic, but I really do have to ask someone, and I thought asking the community would give me a more balanced idea...

What is considered ita? Is there some sort of general guideline or is it purely personal perspective?

Why are black and white combinations considered ita? I have a rather old black dress with white lace, which I think is kinda cute, but is it ita?

Is red tartan ita? I have a red tartan skirt because my hubby likes the fabric... 

Why do we need a term like 'ita' anyway, if we're all open to experimentation?
11:50 pm - Qutieland delays
Tigger & Rabbit
Hello all. As some of you who order from Taobao may know, the staff of Qutieland is currently on a work trip (http://www.qutieland.com/news.php?new=34). This means they may not respond to order e-mails for some length of time.

Has anyone ordered from them during the work trip and gotten a reply back yet? It's been a week since I put in my order and I haven't gotten a confirmation yet. I'm expecting something of a delay, but I just want to figure out how long it may take. I sent them an e-mail and they sent me a link to their website explaining the delay, but not approximately how long it may be!
