I've got a Yumetenbo/DreamV pink dress, a Baby tiara, a Tralala 3-way bag (similar to some that AP has done), an h.Naoto FRILL cutsew, a hand-made cutsew that fits sizes 22-26W, 2 pairs of (long) coloured bloomers, AP Sugary Pony socks in the rare periwinkle colourway (never tried on), some Meta socks, some Putumayo socks, an offbrand punk bag, a pair of Bodyline shoes and 2 pairs of Queen Bee shoes (an indie brand from Tokyo). Clothing ranges in size from about a US 10-12 to 26W. Shoes are all 24.0-25.0 (too small for my 25.5 feet).
In order to get feedback, I would need you to comment on that post as well as this one--but you can use OpenID to do that if you don't have an LJ.
I am willing to do OBO/haggling (though maybe not on the $5 used socks, LOL).
I absolutely adore the BTSSB Marie Antoinette JSK, especially in blue. I first laid eyes on the dress when Skye (who wrote the Princess Portal) wore the OP in a photoshoot, and I was instantly smitten with the print. ♥
I don't own it, unfortunately. Ah well, maybe, someday! :D
What about you, lovely Lolis?
I'm doing a panel on Lolita fashion at my college's first ever anime/gaming convention! I'm excited, even though I know only one or two people are likely to show up. I promise to post pictures, and if anyone's in the Potsdam, NY area, come to Bear-Con and keep me company at the Lolita panel! :D

Musical Taste: Just about everything
Job: Currently unemployed, but working on freelance writing.
Hobbies: Ball Jointed Dolls, sewing, writing, cooking, baking
Life Goals: To be get my degree and do something with myself.

Relationship Status: In a relationship
Family: At home it's just me, my mother and my stepfather. I have a stepbrother and a stepsister too, but they live elsewhere.
Favourite Styles of Lolita: Classic and Sweet (not too OTT though! Deco looks nice on other people, but I tend to prefer darker, more subdued prints).
Musical Taste: Honestly, I'll give anything a shot. There isn't really a style of music I dislike.
Job: I work in office admin, and enjoy it a fair bit. Other than that I'm soon to be a university student (just waiting for the Accommodation contract now), taking a BA in Visual Communication.
Hobbies: I read and keep an art journal. I like to take walks. I also play the recorder. *dork* In the winter I like to knit, helps get me in the mood for Christmas.
Life Goals: I'd love to make people happy with the artwork I create (and make a decent living from it, too). :)
Say Anything: Anyone else here over from LJ? I know a lot of people are migrating to DW or at least setting up backup accounts due to the situation with LJ, Facebook and Twitter. Taking a look at the members' list, there are a couple names I recognise :3
( Oh yeah, and a photo )
Also, I've changed the layout to a rather elegant black and white theme until I can get a more EGL-specific layout set up.
Also, since our 1 year anniversary is coming up, does anyone have any ideas of what we should do to celebrate? Don't be shy, comment with whatever ideas you have!
There's a new Lolita forum that's opened recently - Dressed To A Tea! It's still very new, it's only been open for about a week and a half, but there are some interesting discussions going on, and I'd love it if people joined over there!
And, just to make sure everyone's alive, I have a question for you all - What's your favorite brand? Comment with it, and show me the community's not dead! ^_^

Favourite Styles of Lolita: I like the classic lolita styles and aristocrat the best, I have been trying to do this off and on since 1999 (yes, really) but back then I was more of a lolita-ish fruitsy person. I am very very fond of pink, but not particularly fond of wearing pictures of food or of teddy bears. I have threatened to invent Sweet Aristocrat often. I also like to mix things up. I am a plus-size girl (and while I am losing weight, will probably never be smaller than a 12), so I wear a lot of non-Japanese brand items (F+F, ITS, commissions) and coordinating items that I find outside of lolita brands. Also I am one of those people who is into steampunk and granny boots.
Musical Taste: Extremely eclectic. My favourite singer ever was Ozaki Yutaka but I am not one of those people who only listens to Japanese music--I like classic rock, country music, some alternative, alt.country, folk, and some of almost everything else.
Job: Administrative assistant at a teaching hospital.
Hobbies: Writing (rpgs, fanfiction, original fiction), fandom in general, fashion.
Life Goals: To publish my writing, have a fantastic wardrobe and home, and maybe find someone who appreciates me for who I am.
Say Anything: I'm glad to see EGL on DW. I hope that it grows here but still stays nice.
( Have some terrible self-taken pictures of me from Baycon... )
Residence: UK Midlands
Relationship Status: Taken
Family: Not really.. ^^;
Favourite Styles of Lolita: Sweet (on me), EGA (on my gf :3), and both on anyone else because of the general prettiness. :)
Musical Taste: Orbital, Portishead, Nitin Sawhney, Radiohead, Adam Freeland, Turin Breaks..
Job: Costuming student! :D It's as fun as it sounds.
Hobbies: Sewing, jitsu, juggling, gaming, anime, reading, cooking
Life Goals: To set up my own little sewing business, and generally be happy and loved.
Say Anything: I'll admit, I'm doing this partially to procrastinate on an essay. XP I should really get back to that now..
Anyway, hi everyone! *wave*
( Behind the cut :3! )
Hope to get to know everyone ♥
