Anime Milwaukee Lolita Fashion Show!

Just letting you all know that the Lolita fashion show at Anime Milwaukee this year is being held Sunday, February 20 from noon to 1P.M.

I as well as a couple other designers are having our designs in the show, so be sure to check it out if you're going to the convention!

And just in case you can't make it to Anime Milwaukee but would still like to see my designs go down the runway, I am also participating in another fashion show that same weekend, at Decibel Nightclub, 1905 E. North Avenue, 53202 ...show starts at 11:30 P.M., all attending must be over 21 for this event.

Hope to see some of you there!

Kamikaze Girls Sequel

So I just finished reading "Kamikaze Girls" for the second time, and there is a very short blurb in the back of the english version of the book saying that Takemoto has written and published a sequel. I believe it's called something like, "Shimotsuma Story End – Yanki-chan and Lolita-chan and the Murder Case." I found the title searching Google, yet in the "Kamikaze Girls" book, it doesn't even give the title of the sequel.

But now all I can come up with is that title, where to buy the FIRST book, and information about the movie. Has anyone read/seen this sequel? I would love to buy it, but I can't even find out if its been translated to english.

Any help would be much appreciated!

No More Heroes 2

No More Heroes 2 is a video game for Wii that came out last January. I didn't see any posts directly relating to this, but remove if you think this is irrelevant or has already been stated.

This boss in No More Heroes 2 is supposed to have a Gothic Lolita feel to her outfit and I can see it. I thought it was going to be worse but it wasn’t so bad. I am not digging the white x black combo so much or the way the dress is done in the front but the whole idea of the character and dress is pretty close to acceptable for a video game only “resembling” the style. ( I like her head dress too, sorry I like maxi pad head dresses)

Also, catchy as hell song. REAPER REAPER THAT’S WHAT PEOPLE CALL ME. c;

taobaonow ordering?

Hi ladies and gents!
I just had a couple questions about ordering from taobaonow. I'm trying to send the first payment via Mastercard debit card but when I enter in the number it says "Visacard required". Any ideas why? (I only have a Mastercard, not a Visa, and it says I could pay using Visa or Mastercard on the taobaonow page.)
Also, is there a way I can order with Paypal in case the credit card thing doesn't work out? I heard you can, but I don't see anywhere to pay with Paypal on the page.
Thanks!

Do you have to use a shopping service?

 I've attempted to look this up in the memories, but didn't find anything.

I'm interested in buying a JSK from Angelic Pretty's official website, but do I have to use a shopping service? And if I did, are there any anyone would recommend? I'm pretty new to lolita, so I'm not sure how I would use one anyway!! 

Thank you

Edit: By official website, I mean the one totally in Japanese. http://www.angelicpretty.com/shopping/index.htm

Circus and random Fanplusfriend purse question

I'm wondering if someone could hook me up with names/photos of the circus themed prints out there, particularly offbrand ones (if they exist), as well as any links to circus themed photoshoots. I know I've seen a few unprofessional circus photoshoots that rocked my socks, but I'm having a hard time refinding them. The search engine is failing me big time - what's new? ;) I'll keep searching as best I can, but if there are any other circus fans out there, I'd appreciate the help.

Also, for those who have experience with Fanplusfriend's purses, how's the quality? :D
