Angelic Pretty SF Store :)

 I'm just sharing this link to Carousel of Crown's initial Angelic Pretty Store Opening coverage. I've been waiting and waiting for clear photos of what the store looks like and how it was stocked and finally found something (on their blog) other than just the front window display or part of a rack or floor tile. 

I know I'm not the only one curious to see what the inside looked like *o*! Cute! I wish I could see more of the Harajuku Hearts side too though!

Innocent World question...

Collapse )
I'm a bit confused here... When you look at the mantle on the site, it's not on the reserve page, and it doesn't have the "reserve" symbol over it. Yet when you look at the mantle's product page, it says it is currently accepting reservation. And yet it also says the release date should be late October.
So I'm perplexed; is it still up for reserve or isn't it?

Anyone willing to answer some Lolita questions? :)


I am interested in learning more about the lifestyle of a Lolita, I am currently in my final year at university and researching the Lolita subculture in particular...I would be most grateful if you could spare some time to answer the questions below? You wouldn't be named and all answers would be used solely in my own work :)

Thanks in advance!

DSi/PSP Lolita Skins?

I just purchased a DSi for my husband for Christmas, and the thing is antagonizingly stark white. I dove into researching custom skins and it got me thinking - do any of you lolis have custom drawn DSi or PSP skins in a lolita theme? I know its kinda a long shot, but I'd love to see photos if you do! I'm looking for inspiration to create one for myself (I have a PSP) and one non-lolita for my husband's DSi.

A post in good fun I made a post on my blog about some of the notorious types of people on EGL.  I wanted to hear you guys's imput; if you think I missed a bunch, or a few were off the mark (or if the entire post was off the mark >_>)
A few more I was thinking about adding were
The Shameless Promoter
The Needless Showoff
The Obvious Troll

EDIT: thank all of you for your good advice and compliments!
I'll be sure to be adding the rest of them soon
EDIT 2: Ok, done updating. I added 6 more, I believe....
