CIRCUS CALL!

Time to kick off the 2012 circus theme with a new contest! (The winners of the previous contest will be posted in a week's time.)



Contest Description
Imagine you're in a lolita circus; what would your stage name and act be? Each member of the community may enter a single time alone and/or a single time in a group with a maximum of two photos of each. Entrants are required to use at least one circus-inspired prop pictured in their entry. Props may include something that may be out of the ordinary like snakes, flaming batons, or a bullwhip (i.e. a wig on your head will not count as a prop, but one on your hand embodying your alter-ego would). Please include in your entry what your prop is and why it fits your entry. Entries will be judged on adherence to the contest theme, originality/creativity, adherence to the lolita aesthetic [including all substyles], overall look/entry quality, fit of stage name, and visible embodiment of a circus performer.

Daily lolita photo find help?

within the last month or so ( I think :S) A girl posted a co-ord she did with a bodyline skirt she altered into a fantastic OP.(The clock skirt in green and brown).

I think your co-ord was amazing and i was looking for the photo on daily lolita to get some inspiration for a alteration i want to do myself. I can't find the co-ord anymore and wondering if anyone else has the link saved (or the girl herself can point me to it ^.^)
I'm afraid i don't know the username of who made it, but it was awesome :D

I hope this isn't too weird a thing to ask! 

Thankies :)

Lolita store in Japan or China???

I am planning on a vacation next summer. I know it's kinda early to ask around but my dad is interested into going to Taiwan, I wanna go to Japan and my aunt suggests to go to Shanghai. Which one would have better lolita stores in good prices? I know Japan would definitely have a lot of brand store but they are too pricy... Would Shanghai have Taobao stores? What about Taiwan??? Since I have never been to Shanghai or Taiwan, can someone tell me which store in where???

ATTN: Lolitas in Dallas, TX

hey Dallas Lolitas. I'm making a trip down there later on this month Jan. 20-24 2012. I'm wondering if anyone would want to get something to eat or have a little meet up. I'm sure you ladies know where all the cutest places are and I enjoy meeting new people.
