I have questions about wigs and bangs.
I looked through the memories, but the list for shops to buy wigs from was very small. What's the best wig store to buy from that has good quality wigs that aren't like $993293238? I'm looking for websites that are easy to navigate, because I'll probably be asking for some for christmas and it needs to be simple for my mom. ahaha
I've never owned a wig before, but I thought it might be kinda fun to have a different style of hair for a day!
For the people who own wigs and wear wigs frequently, do you really like wigs? are they a huge hassle? pros? cons?
Also, my friend likes bangs, but when she gets bangs she ends up hating them after a couple weeks. I suggested getting those clip in bangs that I've seen around, but I can't seem to find any place that sells good quality versions. Anyone know of any places that sells those?
has anyone bought from gabalnara.com? how were their wigs? expensive?
Hi, I'm new to EGL and wearing Lolita clothes, although I've been deeply interested in the style for the past 4 years. I searched the posts under the tags for reactions to lolita, but nothing really talked about how often negative reactions occur. I finally recieved my first lolita dress from Fairy Angel. It's Baby the Stars shine bright- it's used, but I unwrapped it...and unexpectedly found my dream dress. It's mint green- green is my favorite color. It has little roses- and I love roses. It's a Jumpskirt, and it looks absolutely wonderful with the Meta top I also bought from Fairy angel. I put it in my closet at my Mother's house, for safekeeping...and didn't put it on. Why? If I was honest, I would say it was because the first time I ever got up the guts to wear Lolita in public (instead of just parties with my friends) a guy stared at me. Leering. And I put my head down and scurried away. I love that dress. It's beautiful. It's perfect. And..I am so afraid to wear it. I don't want to be looked at like that...and I'm not so sure why I'm so afraid. In high school, I wore crazy OTT goth/punk clothes with huge hats and hand-painted shoes. In my first two years of college, I painted wreaths of flowers in bright eyeliners. This is just another way to express what I want to wear...but. Somehow, being leered at like some kind of prostitute-like I was just there to tempt him- bothers me so much more than anything else I've ever experienced.
Any advice? How often does it really happen? Was I just unlucky? How do you handle it? Is this going to happen every time I wear my Loli in public? And what ratio are the "Heidi" or "little Bo Peep" comments (which I find easy to handle) to the pervy, nasty reactions (much harder to handle)? And...how do you handle the discomfort that comes from being leered at? How do you react?
I know some of you have used taobao spree before, and I would like your help.
I have placed my order and payed the first payment but this is my question: do they email you once the have bought the items from the seller or only when they have the items?
Hello egl! I was wondering if you could answer (or at least speculate on) a question I had concering brands and the sizing of their blouses. While looking at various websites (particularly IW and BTSSB), I noticed a strange trend among lolita brands to make the minimum measurements (especially in the bust area) for the blouses a couple or sometimes even three or four inches bigger than the minimum measurements on their jsks and ops. Having smallish measurements myself, I find this rather infuriating. I can reasonably expect to fit the dresses, but never the blouses? Why do you think this strange difference exists? Is there any possible reason why this would make sense, especially considering that these blouses are typically shown worn under the smaller jsks? I was hoping to possibly save up and buy a skirt or dress and blouse from a brand, but it doesn't seem like I'll ever fit the blouses without extra alteration expenses. :(
Thank you for any comments or opinions on this frustrating phenomenon!
