For the Creative Lolita's, What fabrics do you like?

I am looking at doing a pile of sewing after christmas this year, to boost my lolita closet and fill my need for dream prints that I didnt have the money to buy at the time. I've been stockpiling some fabric designs on spoonflower, and thought I would ask what designs people like at the moment.

Im looking at getting:

I really like the JetJ jumperskirts with the black bodice and print skirts, so I am looking at mostly making skirts and wearing them with a plain black dress I have that has the most amazing lace sleeves. But there will be a few that I make into JSKs. I would also love to design some disney inspired prints, after seeing the Disney anniversary prints released lately :)

So, what fabrics do you like? Anything you saw from a designer that you couldnt afford, but found similar fabric to? Or anything that just screams "make a skirt from me!!!"?

Moitie's Blog?

I am curious. I know Mana has a blog of his own, and naturally he talks about Moi Meme Moitie, but is there a seperate blog for the brand itself, just like Baby and Meta have blogs for all of their stores? If anyone has a link that would be swell! Thanks again!

'Whoa! Bonnets look GOOD on me!' and other unexpected surprises

'How could this OP be so comfy? The measurements say it should be really snug!'

'I look AWESOME in head-dresses!'

'This petticoat is enormous! ...I like it!'

'Holy cow, I look taller in tiered skirts!'

'I thought I hated wigs, how come this one suits my face so nicely?!'

Everyone has had a moment of pleasant surprise in this fashion, whether it be because a pastel wig suited your skin tone perfectly, or hit the jackpot on closet-child, or that first time you took a gamble in a brand new style. Why not share yours?

Doing a lolita video project...

Hi everyone, I'm doing a video project based on lolita. I wanted to talk about different topics within lolita. This won't be a public video, I'm going to be turning it into my instructor. I will be starting off saying what lolita fashion is, the history of it (Victorian era), and then the mentioning of brands. I want to talk about the fashion - I don't care much for the lifestyle, but maybe I should mention some things about it? So I will be mentioning different styles - sweet, hime, gothic, classic (those are the main ones?) and then some of the brands - AP, BtSSB, Moi Meme, Innocent World. As well as some Western brands - Annahouse, Sweet Rococo (don't know any others).

Please give me some advice? What are some suggestions I should use other than that to incorporate into my video?

Also, what are some links to some popular lolita blogs? I know of Parfait Doll. Do brands like Angelic Pretty or BtSSB have their own blogs? Misako Aoki?

Paris BTSSB and Harajuku -- Opening hours?

I've recently come with my school to Paris for my art class, and we've been given a single day off to do what we like around the city. I decided that, since we were in Paris, I would check out a few of the lolita shops!

Now, I've found shopping guides, so that isn't a big deal. But what does concern me are the hours that the stores are open. I've searched for both of these, and I can't seem to find them anywhere!

Does anyone know when Baby The Stars Shine Bright in Paris is open? Additionally, if anyone knows the hours for Harajuku, as well, I would greatly appreciate it!!!

Looking for local community + short introduction

Hey! As this is my first post to the community (and first post on LiveJournal), I'm sorry if I do something wrong ^^''
I'm Layla from the Netherlands, pleasure to meet you ~ I've been lurking on the net and reading and observing for about a year, and I have been lurking on this comm as well :3 You know, looking at outfits and such, researching brands, and the basic structure of an outfit, so that I'm well informed when I start.  I currently do not have the possibility to be one, but as soon as I am able to I will! :D

Which gets me to the following question: Is there any local community here in the Netherlands? I've visited the Dutch Elegant Lolita page, but that one is kinda dead unfortunately. I'm just curious so when I get the chance to dress Lolita I can hopefully meet up with some others ^^

Oh! That reminds me. In my hometown (Apeldoorn) I was walking outside around Americahal where Boekenfestijn was being held, and I saw a Sweet Lolita on a bike. I thought it was best not to talk to her, especially as she was.. well.. riding a bike (I was walking and crossing the road there) and it looked like she was in a hurry. I was delighted though to see that it seemed like there were Lolitas near me. Perhaps.. if you recognize yourself in this story, let me know? ^^

Anyways, have a good day I guess ;P
