I'd like to start off by saying thank you all very much for the great response, ideas, and interest to my original post! I've decided to go ahead with the magazine, which will be the only English-language print magazine in the world for Lolitas. It will be open to Lolitas of all styles, all races, all sizes, all ages, and now I need your help to get it going!

If you're a writer, artist, model, photographer, layout designer or just a Lolita with a great idea for an article or something you think other Lolis would like to read or see, please go check it out. :) We need your submissions, as soon as possible but no later than July 1st, when I will begin coordinating the final look and layout of the magazine for a tenative early August release. PLEASE CHECK THE SITE BEFORE ASKING QUESTIONS ABOUT SUBMITTING YOUR WORK.
If you think you might like to buy La Vie when it comes out, or would just like to keep an eye on the project and how it's going, please friend la_vie_en_lj as I'll post there with final details as they're decided. Feel free to post your own ideas or opinions there as well! Thank you!
(For non-LJ friends you think may be interested, please tell them to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with "Mailing List" in the title.)
Details that have fallen into place since the original post:
-Enough people liked the title I decided to leave it as is. "La vie en rose" is French for, literally, "life in pink", but means more of "being optimistic, sometimes too much so," "the sweet life", and so on. :)
-La Vie will only be available as a printed magazine, probably Print-on-Demand for around $10 dollars, shipping included, the first issue. However, no final decisions and prices have been decided.
-The page number and frequency of publication has not been decided yet: it all depends on your submissions!
-It will be full color.
Thank you all for reading, and for any ideas and input you'd like to give! I'm excited about the possibilities of this magazine, and hope you are too! ^_^
