My first Enchantilic Enchantilly dress – Queen Cat!

I ordered my first dress from Enchantilic Enchantilly and it arrived today! What surprised me the most was the sheer level of attention to detail in the packaging, as well as the garment itself. I should say, this is not a product review and more an appreciation a really beautifully packaged garment.

The box came with a beautiful A3 poster, pictured top right, on top of the order. There was also a small, sealed brown envelope containing TEN postcards! The dress was packed inside this branded draw string bag and came with a non-slip hanger. The small A4 poster representing the series came in plastic, as did the dress, and both were sealed with branded stickers.

As someone who owns at least 15 copies of The Gothic and Lolita Bible (GLB) I’m obviously devastated to hear the announcement today that the magazine will be suspended as of May 24th.

J-Fashion at DokiDoki in Manchester

A couple of weeks ago myself and a couple of the girls from my J-fashion community represented J-fashion at DokiDoki festival in Manchester. We were really keen to get involved with the fashion side of the convention, especially since it’s in the local area.

It was actually my first time properly being behind a stand at a convention and I really enjoyed it! I drew a lot of pictures, had really nice conversations and raised a good bit of money for charity.

Our table was absolutely piled up with wigs, accessories, hairpieces, necklaces and clip on things by the tonne in lots of different styles because we wanted to give people lots of different styles to try.

I also brought a couple of my GLB magazines with me, including the one that has my photographs inside! I still get to be proud of that, you know?

Hosting a Great Lolita (or general) Meetup!

I’m one of the admins/moderators for my area of the UK Lolita fashion community, so I get a lot of questions about Lolita fashion all the time. I know there’s lots of amazing, in depth resources out there,so over the next few weeks I’ll be writing a few requested posts, compiling a bunch of resources and food for thought in general about Lolita fashion that new members can learn from, and more experienced members can hopefully enjoy.

Today’s topic is: Hosting a Lolita Meet. (But it could be applied to any hobby meetup) This was a requested post, since many girls are new and want to host meets, but feel a bit shy about doing so.

Outfit Post: Lolita Fashion Show at The Atkinson Gallery

Despite being incredibly ill over the past few weeks, I’ve managed to drag myself out of bed enough days to plan a whole fashion show and display. It took place at The Atkinson Gallery on the Saturday that has just passed and I’m still feeling really surreal about it. I almost can’t believe it happened even though I planned the thing and also I was there?
