Bodyline Review



Hi! I'm new here. I'm a newbie lolita, and this is my first post! English is not my 1st language, so please forgive me if I make some mistakes.

Well... Today I received my package from Bodyline. This is my first time ordering something from them, and I just have to say that the items are really cute! 

Let's go with the dress first:


The color looks a little bit different from the photo, but it still looks great! 
I'm a tall girl, so the dress length reaches some centimeters above my knee, but it really doesn't matter.

Cravat Clarification


I am looking for a cravat!  Unfortunately, googling cravats gets one a lot more jerbos and clip ties than actual cravats.  So I am looking for an actual cravat - or someone who can make and/or sell me one.  Thank you so much.

I am looking for a men's cravat, by the way, but with a bit more elegance than a simple one color one tier cravat etc.  So, something with some character, but still masculine.  Material doesn't really matter as long as it is a traditional sort of material.


Button up dresses in Lolita

(Feel free to delete this if it has been asked before, but I couldn't find it :3)

 

Okay, I am a very new Lolita (I have only started dressing lolita in the past few months), and I have no job or money at the moment, so I have to deal with what I can find in everyday stores and thrift stores.

Anyway, I'm going to an anime convention, and I wanted to dress full lolita (accessories and everythin) for the first time. However, I wondered if this dress actually worked http://s1192.photobucket.com/albums/aa329/Irrelevant_Lies/?action=view&current=Eeek.jpg

I'd add more poof by layering the petticoat, and would also bring the petticoat a little lower to add length- I just wondered if the colour(s) and the buttons worked for lolita? If not is there a way to save it and make it more lolita?

Thanks ^_^

Im looking for items that are halloween themed, have bats, grave stones,coffins, pumpkins, ghosts, crosses ... stuff like that.. It can be anything from jewelry and socks to full on ensembles.

Wardrobe post photos being used by scammer- alert!



Hello everyone! Remember the wardrobe post theme that we had on here a while back? Well, today some friends let me know that they noticed someone has taken the photos from my waqrdrobe post, and is using them to try to scam people on poupee girl. I really don't want anyone to get ripped off by this scammer, so I thought it would be wise to let everyone know over here. Especially since a lot of egl members are also on Poupee girl.

Lolitas in the news!

 Well not specifically, but channel 4 ran a debate about Slutwalk and there was a flash of an OTT wig, and then on the webpage there's a picture of four Lolita girls at the front of a Slutwalk march.
Link is here: http://www.channel4.com/news/fierce-debate-over-uks-first-slutwalks


So I was wondering if they are members of EGL?
Also wondering has anybody else attended their nearest Slutwalk in Lolita? I myself didn't (though I did go in bloomers and a corset), but I spotted a couple of Lolitas at the Newcastle Slutwalk yesterday.

Sweet Lolita Tips

So, my taste in...everything, has gotten progressively "sweeter" and "kawaii" and it has finally reached my clothes (not that there's anything wrong with that, but it's a giant change from my currently "depressing" wardrobe lol.)

But let me cut to the chase; Do any of you have any tips on dressing more "maturely" in Sweet Lolita? Well...as mature as it can be for the sweet-style, like...an elegant strawberry cupcake or something? X3

Thank you, dolls!

Black Alice shop in Singapore

Hi, I am new to the community. I've been interested in Lolita fashion for several years, but have only recently started investing in clothing. I was wondering if anyone has made online purchases from Black Alice in Singapore. What has your experience been like? My main concern is with shipping time to the United States. The website quotes 2-4 weeks for shipping internationally, and I was wondering if this is an accurate estimation. I live in Boston, Massachusetts, USA, and I am trying to gauge when to expect a JSK I am considering buying.

Thanks!

Lolita themed video contest, hair/make up tutorial and a video from a Finnish lolita meeting 28.5.

 
Hello, everyone!

I would like to share few quite happy and funny things with all of you and ask if there are people that are interested in participating a small video contest that I arrange. There are prizes included for the three best ones, but I think that the biggest prize of all will be the fact that the videos will most likely make so many other people happy. :) 
Click the LJ cut to see more information about the contest, and to watch my make up and hair tutorial and a video about a big Finnish flower themed lolita meeting that I arranged here in Finland 28.5.2011 (43 participants all in all).
