another mil**oo site?

or something just as bad?

ok, i just want to say i'm sick and tired of googling lolita items (in this case, i wanted to see the usual placement of lace on blouses) and ending up with links to *that* site, and their horribly photoshopped pictures.

so, is this them, or someone else doing the same thing? let's see, there's stolen, photoshopped pictures, mentions of buying wholesale from china, and they also do wedding dresses. i'd also guess several (many? all?) of the reviews are fake. the syntax used seems to be similar among many of the reviews, and incongruous with the supposed country of origin.

this is the first time i've seen this site, and it's not on the list, so i figured i'd ask. :)

mil**oo, mil**oo, go away, don't come back another day...

Desperate for info! Haven't heard from Mai Ozawa for two months for my last package.

I was supposed to have a package shipped in December, but she was busy. Then I sent another email later on to see how it was going and she replied on the 6th of January that she hasn't had time to ship it and will try to as soon as possible. Then I sent another email in February, but still no contact. My friend and I sent up follow up emails, and still no reply.

It has almost been two months since my last point of contact with her, so I'm starting to panic here. That package is rather expensive (I've already paid $800 AUD+). Then I hear a few days ago that she's been active on her ebay account and sent a package to someone. So I'm at my wit's end and rather concerned. Why hasn't she replied to any of my emails? 

I was wondering if anyone has any news or any point of contact with her beyond January 6th? Or just in general, any information about her at all? Please.

Any information at all would be helpful. It's a really expensive package and I don't want to lose that money especially with university starting up again.
[*I'm aware that she stopped her shopping service a while back, but she still offered it to a few select people, which I happened to be one of "orz.]

[8/03/2012] Update: She finally got back to me this morning and it should be shipped this evening!


[16/10/2012] Update!!!
Another order and three months without contact. Has any body else heard from her?

"Capela dos Ossos" - Ossuary-print-skirt photoshoot

A little while ago I got the idea to do an ossuary-print skirt. I think I was mostly inspired by Juliette et Justine's printed skirts that often feature large images and unusual themes. I ended up deciding to do two different prints because I couldn't decide on just one! I finally had a chance to do a photoshoot with the skirts recently. The style I went with was gothic with a little bit of classic mixed in.

Secret shop tea party replicas

Hi, I am on the verge to buy a pair of secret shop tea parties replicas.

But before I want to buy them I would like to know if they worth buying.
I found some mixed reviews about the shoes on blogs and EGL.

My question is, if you own a pair of these shoes please tell me your experience with them.
My biggest fear is that they will have a horrible plastic smell to them, or they will walk uncomfortable.

I hope to get some knowledge about them here before buying.

Thanks in advance =^,^= 

How to wash a wool coat properly? -_-

Hi!
I'm looking for a bit of help; I just bought a second hand coat made of wool. As I always do I machine washed it and came out totally shrunk...
It never happened to me yet, I'm so angy at myself! I used the fragile programm with 30° water and low spin-drying.
I'd like to know if there is something I can do to give it back is original size...
Thanks a lot for your help :)

Stock Photo Request!

I'm wondering if anyone happens to have stock photos, measurements, and additional information for the Onagadori Coat (or, as they translated it, "Cock Coat") Meta put out a few years ago. I had all the photos and information saved in the hopes of one day purchasing the piece, and now that I've managed to find it on auction I have no idea where all that info might have gone :c And it doesn't seem to be up on Lolibrary or HelloLace.

Thanks in advance for your help!
