Aristocrats, Punks, Goths, Dandies...Wanna Write a Guest Post?

Hello, I am a former Sweet Lolita who has recently taken an interest in Aristocratic, Gothic, Punk and Boystyle, and want to share my new obsession with the world. I must admit that I myself am just beginning to work on my own wardrobe, so I was hoping some of you more established folks might be interested in writing a guest blog post. Tutorials, outfit posts, make up and hair ideas, shop reviews, coordinating tips, anything would be helpful. So any fabulously dressed person who wants to promote themself and their style (I am hoping all of this fits into the theme...) please contact me! I deleted my old Sweet Lolita/Gyaru blog but you can see my rather bare bones new one at http://darstalkergirl.blogspot.com/ . I am looking forward to hearing from any of you who want to do a post!

Night fairy fantasia question

Hello egl~ I recently received my Night Fairy Fantasia navy skirt, but threads keep coming off the lace parts. It's not that bad, but for a 16000yen skirt it is annoying. I haven't had that problem with my other Aatp prints, but Night fairy fantasia's fabric is not as thick as most of them.

I was wondering if anyone else has the same problems or any tips. Especially for washing, because I'm afraid a lot of threads will come off once I wash it.

Thank you!

Casual Aristocrat?

Me again. :3

I'm not wearing lolita very much lately, but that's only because I've decided to "graduate" to aristocrat (Yayz! lol). I love the mystery and the drama of it, however sometimes I think at times it can be too dramatic...to other people (ie. my mom); Plus with the summer months, puddles, teenage ruffians, etc. it is a little hard to go all out.

Any tips on casual aristocrat? :O The only idea can think of off the top of my head is a "Corp-Goth" ensemble. Sounds like a good idea if I was actually working in an office  subtly creepying out all of my "normie" co-workers (lol) or going to an interview, but that isn't EXACTLY what I had in mind.

◆浣熊的布衣作坊◆Lolita洋装专卖/Princutess Taobao store reviews?

 I recently discovered this taobao store:


and I fell in love with their clothing, but I can't seem to find any (EDIT: recent) reviews. If anyone could kindly tell me about their experience with this shop or link me to any reviews (on their recent clothing) I'd be very grateful. 

Thank you :)

Aoki Misako

I searched and googled but couldn't find anything, so I wanted to ask. I was looking at my friend's Bodyline catalogue from 2006 and there's a model there that looks exactly like the BtSSB model Aoki Misako! Is that really her and has she modeled for any other lolita brands? I thought she was exclusively Baby's model but maybe this is before she worked with them. I'll get the catalogue from my friend in a bit and upload the photo if needed. I thought that was pretty interesting and wanted to share. :)

Edit: I took photos. Also noticed her on another page.

San Diego Comic Con Meetup

The SD lolitas are organizing a meetup, and I figured since a lot of people come down for Comic Con it'd be good to post the facebook event page to EGL. We'd love to meet you. <3

SD Lolitas Meetup @ SDCC

It's at 2 p.m. Saturday in front of the Marriott hotel, which is directly next to the convention center itself. We're meeting outside due to the fact that not everyone has a badge for that particular day. There will also be a smaller meet inside the convention center on Sunday but details are TBA.

We'll have to migrate once we're all together - I'm sure we'll end up getting coffee or lunch and stopping somewhere to get some nice photographs.

I'll [or one of us will] eventually pass out my mobile number to interested parties so no one gets left behind.

May be derping out in front with a sign, but we shouldn't be hard to spot.
Hope to see you there. <3
