Hope everyone had a wonderful 2019 and is looking forward to a happy 2020 filled with new frills and new friends!
As we prepare to start the new year, I wanted to take this opportunity to announce our next monthly theme. January's theme is...
It's that time of year again- let's show off our lolita wardrobes! Feel free to share as much (or as little) of your closet as you'd like with the community. All are welcome, whether you're a longtime lolita with an enviable collection or a new member of the fashion with a lovingly created budding wardrobe. You can also share your closet layout or storage solutions, and this would also be the perfect time of year to raise any questions about how to build or manage your lolita wardrobe. If you're not sure where to start, or if the thought of hauling out every decoden ring fills you with dread, feel free to share a selection of your favorite items! There are no rules for your wardrobe post (live dangerously!), but we encourage you to use the tags community: wardrobe post and theme: january so others can easily locate the wardrobe post you worked so hard on.
The wardrobe theme has been an annual event on EGL since 2011, when our old admin, harukoko, introduced the theme. It's been a staple- and without a doubt, our most popular theme- in the ensuing eight years! Who could have predicted this little theme would turn into such a robust tradition?! If you'd like some inspiration for formatting your post, or to moon over wardrobes of years past, you can check out this tag or this tag.
Additionally, we know the wardrobe theme brings many new posters and members to the community. Please take a second to familiarize yourself with the community rules before posting! Most importantly, please remember you can only have one (1) image outside of your LiveJournal cut, and the image should be no larger than 500px wide by 800px high!
2011 was also your idiot author's first year participating in the theme and embarrassingly, I haven't participated since >_< Maybe this year....? Though I'm positive I've said that every year since 2011 and you see where that's gotten us.
