Oh gosh, there hasn't been a post here in ages. I hope you guys are still active here! Anyway, on to introductions!

My name is Laura Palazzo and I just moved to Maryland last year (Eldersburg, Carroll County near Baltimore). Previous to living here, I have lived in England my entire life! I got into Lolita years ago but, let's be honest, I looked like a hot mess, as seen below.

This put me off the style until now, and I want to pick it up again. I recently found my dream dress being sold so obviously I snapped it up! I got the Day Dream Carnival OP in Lavender. So far, it will be the only thing in my wardrobe but I hope to expand a lot in the coming years. I would love to get concrit from all you that have been doing this longer than myself!

I would really love to make some frill friends. Please drop me a message anytime, to chat or even if you just want someone to complain to if no-one else is about! I don't bite - I hope to hear from everyone!

UPDATE: Oz the Great and Powerful!!! from Nova lolitas

I don't know about you guys, but I'm SUPER excited! I mean it's Disney, it's Oz, the animation and special effects look insane... need I say more?

I'm proposing Saturday March 9th at Tysons Corner for the 4PM showing. It is a IMAX 3D reserved seating showing. This means the ultimate movie going experience. We get to pick our own seats so that makes sure that we get to sit together and that we have good seats. Please let me know ASAP so that I know how many to reserve tickets for. We will meet outside the theater around 3:40.

Hope all is well! Looking forward to seeing all you lovelies soon!

Since we don't want to miss out on welcoming any new members to us, I'm making this post to inform any newcomers to the Maryland area.

For various reasons, the members of md_grandeur have moved away from using this LJ and are now facebook based.
For up to date information on members, meetups and general chit chat I encourage you to please request to join the 'Charm City Lolitas' group on facebook.

My name is Melissa, I'm one of the groups moderators, please feel free to drop me a PM on LJ with any questions :)

Nice to meet you all! ^.^

Great day ladies! My name is Imani K. Brown. I'm an artistic (everyday, bittersweet & ((usu)) natural) lolita in the DC area. I've had live journal for a while and recently joined the communities to meet more lollita friends and become more active.

I tattoo by trade on DC and currently working on my tattoo & kawaii lifestyle art brand , Indian Pussy Brand. I want more people to (at the very least) know how wonderful lolita is. I know that sounds corny, but 'tis true ^.^
My favorite slice of life is probably dressing full Lolita some weekends and tattooing ^.^

Anywhoo, here's a couple flicks in some of my favorite Lolita looks and I hope we can be friends.

Very nice to meet you all >^.*<

Hello!

Introductions:
Name: Elle
Age: 18
Place of residence: Baltimore, MD
Style: Classic looks best to me, though I do have a soft spot for sweet, dark sweet and gothic.
How long have you been dressing in lolita?: I've been interested in lolita for many years--since I was 13. But only recently have I been able to buy any pieces, and even now they are limited. I would have a lot more if I could make my own, but I have the sewing skill of a vampire bat. So, I haven't been wearing lolita long or often--that's why I want to be in the community! To learn more about the possibilities of the fashion, and to make friends while I build my wardrobe!

Japanese Street Fashion Picnic and Photo Shoot Out

This was cross posted to all the attendees, models, fashionistas, and photographers! :) This event is open to ALL street fashion styles not just lolitas. :)

The girls of the Charm City Lolitas and the Photographers of the Baltimore, DMV area would like to get together for a wonderful and casual picnic and shoot out. I've broadened the shoot to Japanese Street Fashion in general since that's pretty all encompassing. Most of the girls will be in Japanese Lolita, this is not the Fetish Lolita! It is a Japanese Fashion derived from the Japanese 1980's take of Victorian Era clothing. Confused yet?

Outfits for lolita mainly consist of knee length cupcake shaped skir
ts, knee high or over the knee socks, doll like shoes, lots of bows and lace, hats, bonnets, head bows, etc. Themes for the outfits vary from extreme gothic in black with iron gate prints to tooth decay sweet in pinks with candy designs. As well as guro for gore, typically an all white outfit splattered in blood, classic which is a lot more subdued, steampunk and the list goes on. Other non lolita fashion sub genres that might pop up are elegant gothic aristocrat, ganuro, manba, and decora. Example can be found here: http://www.japanesestreets.com/ and more specific lolita can be found here: www.lolitafashion.org/

Interested yet?

Now the girls (and a few boys maybe) aren't all used to modeling, though some might be, we are used to getting our pictures taken for the outfits but most will probably not have a lot of modeling background and might need some encouragement or instruction. I only stress that you dont ask them to do anything vulgar or profane unless they want too (which I doubt). Lolita prides itself on being demure and pretty, not skimpy and whorish.

The area I've chosen is Brighton Dam Azalea Gardens and though the garden wont be blooming, the fall colors of the trees should look amazing! The azalea garden is situated on the banks of the Patuxent River, by Brighton Dam (built in 1942). The 5 acre garden has over 20,000 azaleas and is provided by the Washington Suburban Sanitary Commission. There is a large stone "deck" in the center of the maze like garden. Across the main road from the garden is a gravel parking lot. There is no public transportation that I'm aware of.

I'm planning to have all the girls meet at the parking lot around 11am. I'm going to tell them to bring picnic stuff since they're more used to event meet ups then photo shoot meet ups, so I'm blending the two! Its going to be very casual, feel free to shoot while we're picnicking or run around the garden with a few of us. Be open and understanding.

I believe most girls will be elated with full body shots, since 95% of their rapture is about their outfits, so this will be a very fashion heavy shoot. Though I'm sure they would LOVE some very nice portraiture shots and head shots. ^_^

I'd like to open this up to other models not in the Japanese Fashion community, but I just urge you to think and research your outfit and fashion thoroughly. I hate to say it, but the girls I'm bringing will possibly snob their noses at half-assed outfits or scantily misinterpreted ideas of the fashion that they fight so hard to keep out of the fetish idea front. If interest is expressed, I do have a few extra items in my closet I can open up to one or two more models. ^_^
