Weird question- about... PHONES!? The smart kind!

Hello everyone! This probably seems like a weird question, but I've never seen it posted (and my quick google action yielded nothing) so I figured it was safe to ask.

After about a million years, and after pretty much everyone I know, I have finally upgraded to a fancy pants smart phone. Yay. I'm already working on a deco skin for it. XD

In the past, I know I have seen one or two people post things like wallpapers they made specifically for phones (I recall one post with some AP wallpapers) and I even saved some of them for future use. (Wonder Cookie greets me when I check my messages!)

I was just wondering if anyone had any other favorite lolita themed smart phone goodies, whether they were wallpapers, maybe cute icons, or ::gasp:: any interesting lolita type apps? (I saw there was a BTSSB Iphone app mentioned, but I don't have an Iphone...) Does anyone have any recommendations or places they can direct me?

Thank you so much!

Juliette et Justine, now with added GLB!

Juliette et Justine, now with added GLB!

Posted with permission from lainnocence

Sorry, I know I only posted about this a couple of days ago but I have more exciting news!
I’m organising an event for Juliette et Justine in London (September 8th-9th), which is, as far as I know the first ever Juliette et Justine event. There’ll be a stall, a fashion show, a Q&A with head designer Mari Nakamura, a raffle for JetJ and other prizes, professional photographers and more competitions, games, events and refreshments (With more to be announced!)

We can now announce our second special guest:

Mariko Suzuki
Editor of the Gothic & Lolita Bible, and former editor of Kera Maniax

Juliette et Justine is paying for ‘a few pages’ in the GLB to do a feature on the event. Even more excitingly they would like to feature two attendees (one model from the fashion show – details of the competition up next week – and one other guest). I really want someone to get talent spotted and become a lolita model in Japan or something! *__*

The dates for this event is Saturday 8th September with an optional tea party on the 9th with Nakamura and Suzuki

Tickets go on sale at 8pm BST (GMT +1) this Sunday
Please watch teapartyclub.blog.com for more details

2012 is pretty special for London, first the Olympic games, now this! If you’ve ever wanted to come and visit we’ll give you a warm welcome! We even have lolis flying from as far as Singapore Australia for this!

Oh and TPC in the news! We were in the Asahi Shimbun today! Mariko Suzuki said she was very surprised to be sent photos of us from Nakamura and then open up her newspaper to see the same photo!

How to convince my boyfriend?

Hi! I wear lolita everyday, and my boyfriend's only problem is that he worries that one day I'm going to get harassed/hurt because of what I'm wearing.
I was wondering what I could say to make him more comfortable. I was also wondering if anyone else has had the same thing?
Thank you for reading ^u^

I just wanted to thank everyone for their replies! ^u^

To be more specific, we go to a pub on Friday/Saturday nights to play MTG, and we leave very late, and he worries that I will attract the attention of drunk people because I am a target as I look different.
Also when I leave his or am at collage, he just thinks that I will attract the attention of those who want to just be mean.
Also he isn't specific on what he means by harassed, think it's anywhere form beign shouted at to getting beaten up.
Hopeless romantic

Fantasic Dolly - Differences?

Hello all! 

I'd like to list the differences between the three main item releases from the "Fantasic Dolly" series. I tried to find the information by searching around but I'd like more specific details than what I found. Any help is greatly appreciated! If you own either of the three please use a soft measuring tape and take some notes.  I would like to figure out which one I should search for based on how they would fit my height. Perhaps this will help others too!

School Project, Questionnaire :D For Textiles :D x

Hello Everyone :) (sorry if i posted this wrong somehow D:)

Anyhoo, This year i am taking GCSE textiles and was wondering if the wonderful people in this group would take the time to answer some questions :D x They are not too taxing, or too long thankfully some are multiple choice :)
and all i ask for is some measly data. (MY project revolves around Japanese Street Fashion, and i am considering making a garment :) ) So if you would be so kind as to complete my questionnaire it would be a big help to my work x :)

(Age wise 15 - 20 years are the answers i'm most looking for but any age is accepted x)

Here we go :D 
(for the photo could you link it to somewhere to show i have evidence of an actual person )
- Please note i need to format them at a later date so if you could lay them out like this it would truly help alot ! x

( I know the questions are quite vague and odd, but they are relevant to my needs :D)

(please answer next to the - as a reply / comment on this post)

Thank you for taking the time to read this post, and hopefully take my questionaire, I hope you have a good morning, or evening wherever you may be :) )
