i have two questions, please help?? 19 Lolita Fashion 9/25/14 4:38pm

I would take a parent or older sibling or friend to your first meetup. Don't go alone. The older members of the community will be responsible for you, and that's not a very fair situation to put a bunch of women in when they're probably just trying to relax and enjoy their weekend-especially when they've never met you before. Due to the price, lolitas are generally in their 20s and 30s, so as othe ...

welcome to my freebie shop! i've been away from gaia for quite some time, and i've been away from drawing for quite a while. i would love to start taking commissions again, but first- i figure i'll need some practice! in order to do that, i'm offering some freebies. but- if you want a freebie, you have to (kind of) work for it. i promise it's not that hard, though. you just have to do t ...

Lolita coats from Bodyline? 8 Lolita Fashion 12/29/13 2:07am
Keally212
I haven't owned that particular Bodyline coat, but in general BL coats are worth the $100 price tag. They're not the most amazing-quality coats out there but they are about on par with something you could pick up at the mall for the same price. I used mine in winter temperatures of 30-40 degrees Fahrenheit (no snow) over a cardigan, blouse, and dress and I was quite warm. With that said, I'd be ...

Finding Petticoats (Out side of the internet) 14 Lolita Fashion 1/19/13 5:03am
-Alice Lunae-
That PARTICULAR Malco Modes petti will give you the correct bell shape, it's one of the most popular pettis for lolitas. They have a lot of other square-dancing ones that do give a weird shape, so if you opt to go that route be sure to ask for model number 582 c:

Feel like crying... 18 Lolita Fashion 1/18/13 8:21pm
Kitten Mott
Please be careful buying from that group. A lot of people who have been banned from other communities sell there. I have bought about six items on there. One was badly inkstained and is essentially unwearable. A second was described as in like-new condition but came massively pilled with pulled seams. And a third was literally COVERED in blood. I screamed when I saw it, it was so gross. The othe ...

I've always been interested... 14 Lolita Fashion 1/19/13 11:26pm

A cutsew is actually just any top that's made out of a knit material ^^ They can be pretty extravagant (like this one) and sometimes even look just like blouses (like this one)! You can wear cutsews or blouse with any style, it's more about the details of the individual item than it is about the item type.

A cutsew is a top made of knit t-shirt material. Sometimes they're t-shirts with puffy sleeves and a cute print, but they can also be very elaborate. Blouses are just pieces made out of a stiff material ^^ As for your earlier question about replicas, I personally would stay away. DoL has notoriously low quality. Oo Jia's quality is a little below Bodyline's in my experience. Both will cost yo ...

Finding Petticoats (Out side of the internet) 14 Lolita Fashion 1/19/13 5:03am
-Alice Lunae-
Vintage and dance stores are the best place to start. I have three vintage petticoats that give amazing poof (I only have three so I can have different color options!) and they cost between $20 and $25 apiece. Dance stores often carry the Malco Modes 582 petticoat, which gives a stellar shape for lolita. If they don't have it in-stock they can usually special-order it for you and it usually runs a ...

I'm gonna wear uggs with lolita to a meet soon ;) 41 Lolita Fashion 1/20/13 8:37pm
Ringo The Crafty Squid
I personally hate Uggs, but hey, do what you want u_u I think if you're going to do something a little offbeat, though, you do have to be aware that it might not be lolita. Lolita's separated from other fashions by the fact that it has rules and guidelines, so by breaking them you might be breaking away from the fashion, too! But there's nothing wrong with that c:

I'd like some advice please! 11 Lolita Fashion 1/14/13 4:22am

1. Just start buying ^^ To make an outfit, you generally need a blouse, a dress or skirt, a hair accessory, legwear, a petticoat, and shoes. You can usually get legwear, headbows, and shoes at "normal" stores for pretty cheap, to help save money when you start out. Petticoats are also easy to find for low prices at vintage shops, and even on eBay. The blouse and dress will probably look best if yo ...

Using brand items in non-lolita outfits? 4 Lolita Fashion 1/15/13 2:37pm
cynicalshortca...
I do it pretty often ^^ I tend to buy a lot of brand items that don't really look lolita, so it's easy to work them into non-lolita outfits. This cardigan, for instance, is from Meta and I wear it with jeans often since it's too long to wear with most lolita. This skirt and this salopette are shorter than traditional lolita fare and lack a full skirt, but they look really cute in casual outfits an ...

Then please don't make assumptions about my character or participation in online forums, either, if it has you so upset! You were the one who clearly called into question my experience with extended discussion on online forums, not vice-versa. I feel I'm pretty well-versed in communicating online, and contrary to your initial implication I don't think I suffer some inability to comprehend the pr ...

Considering I've been on the site much longer than you have, I'm going to go out on a limb here and say yes, I have, in fact, engaged in as much extended, heated discussion as you have. Hell, I will even say that I have engaged in much more extended, heated discussion than you have. So I understand what you're saying- that it can be difficult to follow the flow of a thread if content is missin ...
