Your most ridiculous desire?

So, you know that "ita" phase that apparently every Lolita went through? Those dresses and skirts that were chosen that now cause many to shudder? I wonder, is there still perhaps that one item that no matter how ridiculous and unclassy and clashing with the entirety of your wardrobe it is, you can't help but STILL want it anyway? So what do you do? Give in, buy it and never wear it outside the privacy of your own home? Buy it and wear it out in public with pride? Gaze at it from afar but never give in? Share your experiences, opinions, and preferably, a picture of your most ridiculous desire ;)

Question regarding F+F corset skirt.

Hi I have interest in this skirt http://www.fanplusfriend.com/servlet/the-187/Classical-Gothic-Lolita-cln-Bustle-Tiered/Detail the problem is I dont know the length of the skirt. I emailed F+F about it. But they just kept saying it was knee length and if i needed a specific length I should order custom. The problem with customs is its more likely to involve mistakes and I dont want to end up with some kind of lopsided skirt. Basically my question is, does anyone who own this skirt have an idea of how long it is? I know I can get the skirt in calf length but thats a little longer than I want and I'm worried the knee length will be short. I know for my height which is 165 cm and what Fanplusfriend lists as the standard they go by, 22 inches is about the top of my knee. the problem with that is, if i put on a petti plus my big rear, the skirt will end up pretty short esp in the back. and i feel super uncomfortable in short skirts plus i'll look super silly. so any advisement from you ladies would be good. Also has anyone had to order a custom length from F+F before? Did it turn ok? I am considering have it custom so its a little longer but I just worry about the result.

MAXICIMAM - Where is everything on Hellolace?

After seeing an absolutely amazing plus-sized Maxicimam dress in the comm sales, and finding out that they apparently have their own plus-sized lines (Lovely size), I went charging around Hellolace like a bow-covered bull in a china shop trying to find examples of other things that the company produced. Unfortunately, Hellolace's entries look to be a little limited. There is a total of 15 entries, spanning over only two years.

Did Maxicimam just not produce anything but JSK's? Did the company go under after just two seasons? Why such a limited run for 2009? Or is it the case that Hello-lace just doesn't have a good database for this particular brand?

Do you wanna join Video Harajuku Tour?

Hi All,

I am Hajime from Japan. Currently, I have many gothic lolita friends both in Japan and in abroad and receive many requests.
Also, I hear a lot of people want to come to Japan but too expensive to travel!!!! ...This is sad.

So, I and my friends in Japan came up with one idea!

If there are sufficient people who want to join "VIDEO HARAJUKU TOUR", I will hold it soon.

[What is that?]
I take a live video on ustream with my mobile video camera and 40 Mbps wireless connection. Viewers can request me anything that you usually request in tours. Such as,
1. going to your favorite shops
2. asking questions to me or shop staff (you can ask me in English or Japanese, I can translate if you want to ask to the shop staff) 
3. but unfortunately, I cannot feed you or buy stuff for you... (I can show you my big smile with tasty food)

[When?]
I am thinking Saturday or Sunday in November.
The time will be around 10:00pm in EST; New York, Washington DC, Montreal... (It is 11:00am in Japan)
If different time is better, I will change it. Or, hold this event once again.

[How to join?]
Just need to get an account of ustream so that you can comment. Just to watch the video, you don't need anything.

[How much?]
For free. I was thinking to do this for my friends, so.

[Questions?]
More than welcome. Please comment below.

Thank you very much! I am Looking forward to seeing you!

Hajime
