Would any Lolitas of the United States that dress in Gothic Lolita be willing to allow me to use a photo of themselves dressed in an outfit epitomizing what they feel is Gothic Lolita dress? Or, perhaps a photo of an outfit laid out, hung up, or on a dress form?
My name is Ariel, and I am a senior at the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City, and I am currently working on a research paper about Lolitas in the United States for a class. For my paper, I have decided to focus specifically on Sweet Lolita and Gothic Lolita being worn in the U.S., as the young ladies I have had the opportunity to speak with dress primarily in these two types of Lolita.
Within my research paper I need to discuss one or two outfits of the dress I have chosen, so I will be choosing one Sweet and one Gothic Lolita look. However, since my research paper is about Lolitas in the United States, I thought it would be appropriate to use photos of outfits put together and or worn by Lolitas of the United States.
This would not be posted online, you would remain anonymous if you of course desire, but I would give credit for the image in my bibliography (Even if you wish to remain anonymous, I would credit you with a username, pseudonym, etc.) The only people seeing these images would be a Professor of FIT and my class, as I need to present my paper in a PowerPoint presentation.
Please let me know if you would be interested, or if you know anyone from the United States who dresses in Gothic Lolita that would be interested! If you have any questions regarding making sure I'm not some weird, creepy, untrustworthy and or suspicious person, feel free to ask! I tried to clear up any confusion with my last posting here: http://community.livejournal.com/egl/16514737.html?thread=365103281#t365103281
* I am aware there there are links of stock photos of Lolita outfits and articles of clothing/accessories on the left side of the main page, but to carry out my research and analysis properly, I would like to get photos of outfits put together by a Gothic Lolita in the United States. *
* I know that a few weeks ago I posted here, but I was hoping to possibly have a better chance at getting permission to use photos! *
Also, if you would be interested in answering a questionnaire for my research, I would be more than happy to email/send you the questions!
Thank you very much for taking the time to read this! I look forward to hopefully hearing from some of you!
Hello! I'm an aspiring Gothic Lolita, and I've been looking around at sites (eg. F+F and Bodyline), but I'm not sure where to make my first purchase!
I've heard mixed reviews about both F+F and Bodyline, and I'm becoming anxious about buying from them!
I've read numerous post, but I want direct feedback from experienced Gothic Lolitas.
I just want my first purchase to count and I want to avoid disappointment as much as possible!
Thank you! <3
I know a number of you have alternative/aristo boyfriends. Are you planning on getting them anything special fashion-wise for Christmas?
I'd really love to get my boy some visual-kei/goth stuff off TaoBao because it's cheap and I could buy him a whole outfit. Do any of you guys know of shops on there that sell that sort of thing? I've checked out R-series which has some nice aristo bits and pieces but it's all in women's sizes and it would take too long to have something custom made for a dude and have it shipped. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
... But can I get measurements for the Cherry Berry Bunny OP and JSKs? I looked all through the search results, and could only find the skirt.
