Selling some items on EGL Comm Sales

http://egl-comm-sales.livejournal.com/18505634.html

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).

Bodyline Review

Hoping to see more activity here. This is my first time posting to dreamwidth, so please bear with me if I screw up the html.
This is a review for blouse L373, skirt L325, and headband Acc664.
Lots of Pics )

Dream Dress?

Lots of Lolitas have one ... if you do, what is it? Do you own it?

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?

Hoping it gets more active in here...

Hello to whoever's still here! I'm hoping things get more active - [personal profile] thesynchronomes promoted us on [site community profile] dw_community_promo, so we should hopefully be seeing more people soon.

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

Well, considering the recent advent of people from Livejournal, I'm hoping we've gained some new members here. I doubt this community will ever be as busy as LJ's EGL, but I'd like to at least try to get some action going here. So, in order to figure out what everyone would like, I've come up with this little poll!

Intro-time

Name: You can call me Polyrhythm
Age: 19
Residence: England
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 )

Mod Post (again)

Just letting everyone know that I've advertised the community on [site community profile] dw_community_promo, so hopefully we'll be seeing some new members soon! For those of you who've come here due to the advertisement, welcome! I know it's quiet at the moment, but I hope that we'll be able to change that!

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.

Revamping the community layout/drumming up some activity

Hello there, DW lolitas! As most of you have probably noticed, the community is rather... dead. So, in anticipation of EGL's 1 year anniversary, I'm going to work to redo the layout and try and drum up some activity. If anyone has any layouts they've seen or made that you think we should use for the community, please let me know! Otherwise, I'm going to come up with something on my own and hope that it works. :)

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!

Trying to stir up some life here!

I know that we have members, they're just awfully quiet! So, here I am, posting to get a little activity going.

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! ^_^

Intro post

Name: Kiri

Age: 45 *dies*

Residence: San Francisco

Relationship Status: Single

Family: Not close

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... )

Hobbies: Sewing, jitsu, juggling, gaming, anime, reading, cooking

Introduction XD

Somehow I find a non-existent community less intimidating than [livejournal.com profile] egl orz. I'm not actually a rori yet, considering I'm just kind of...looking into the whole culture? I'd love to dress in rori though ♥. I was enticed by the giant Alice bows and the fact that dresses had CAKES on them omg...XD;;.

Behind the cut :3! )

Hope to get to know everyone ♥
