LoliGirls: The Story Behind the Frills and Bows

Hi ladies, while I was looking through EGLs posts I ran across a very interesting documentary about Lolita fashion. It was the Canadian Hors Series special. Anyways, I ran across another documentary on the web, I don't think it's been posted yet, so you can see it under the cut if you're interested.

Personally, I don't think that this documentary gets what the real gist of Lolita means or is. What do you all think of it?

Questions about "Juliette et Justine" sizing dilemna

I have some questions for the ones who are familiar with Juliette et Justine sizing. I am interested in this dress: Palais de fleur rose.

My problem is there are two different "size 2" measurements displayed on this page:
- The English version: size2 (approx. shoulder width: 41cm, bust: 95cm, waist: 77cm, length: 98.5cm, sleeve length: 58cm)
- The Japanese version: 『サイズ2』バスト 約98cm ウエスト 約80cm 着丈 約98.5㎝ 袖丈 約58cm 肩幅 約41cm

My first question is : which ones of these measurements are the most accurate ? The English ones or the Japanese ones ?
My second question is : do Juliette et Justine's measurements are accurate or should I consider that I'll never be able to fit into this dress with my 93cm bust ?

Thank you very much!

Misako Q and A

 I went to the Hyper Japan event on Friday the 1st of October and filmed Misako Aoki in her Q and A
I actually didn't plan to film it. I had my camera with me and found out about the Q and A last minute. I managed to snatch a front seat and here is what I filmed (I didn't take a tripod with me sadly. Hence the shaky camera in parts)
