Lolita list (copied from kairichan on the lolita swap page)

Gothic Lolita- When you think of the term "Gothic" and you associate it with the style, that's what it is! They use darker colors such as black and red!

Amaloli/Sweet Lolita
- All about the cuteness!! Fluffy,frilly, and all around sweetness is all that can really be said! Stuffed animals help with this! Any cute pattern and pastels are what they wear!

Shirololi- Pretty much a sweet Lolita in all white. It is all about the color!

Kurololi- a Lolita who wears all black!

Himeloli
- A princess Lolita! looks like a princess.

Country Lolita
- anything from little house on the prairie! they use Gingham and straw hats!

English Lolita
- Taking American elements and adding them into the Lolita fashion.

Wa-loli- uses traditional Japanese elements. So it kinda looks like a kimono

Qi loli- Uses Chinese elements

Otaku Lolita's- only in it for the cosplay purpose! based off of anime/manga characters

Punk Lolita- Just like that kid in your class that comes in with the ripped pants and all the plaid. They can be VERY colorful!

Cyberlolita- Pretty much a punk Lolita but uses mainly neon colors.

Kodona- Pretty much a little boy look. It can follow any of the above themes, but turned into what a little boy would wear. Usually cropped pants (below or above the knee usually)

Dandy- Like a grown up Kodona. More sophisticated boy, kinda like a man lolita. it can also be any of the above themes. Top hats and coats are a must!

EGL- Mana actually came up with this. It looks very much like a elegant lolita (lol thats what EGL stands for Elegant gothic lolita) it uses dark colors in a elegant way. a dark blue goes well with this!

EGA- Same as above, but it stands for Elegant Gothic Aristocrat. It is suppose to be more mature looking, meaning not to have the usual short skirt and sleeves but having longer, more adult looking things.

*EGL and EGA is suppose to be androgynous.

2  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Tokidoki, the black swindler, and fiery patchwork on: June 18, 2008 02:11:31 PM
Three bags in one day! Whoo!

One of my swap partners introduced me to tokidoki, and I just love the little punk rocker girl. And my printer finally decided to co-operate with me, so I made her into an iron-on patch that I appliqued onto a bag.



Okay, I am a MAD fad of Yamapi. And I absolutely loved his acting in Kurosagi (which translates into the black swindler). So when I stumbled across this wallpaper over on news_jpop, I knew I had to use it on something.


Now I just need to find a Nobuta pic, and I will be happy in my fandom.

This last bag was inspired by this post http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=249875.0 Except the bottom part ended up too tall, and the middle not tall enough, so I added some yoyos to try to  make up for it. I still think I missed a bit.  Undecided

3  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / yoyo mania! on: June 18, 2008 02:00:20 PM
So, I've been really anxious waiting for my exam results, so I've been spending the past few days crafting like a madwoman.  I made about 100 yoyos, and the first 40 became pins. Here they are!










 Some pics I found on deviantART, others are Mizna Wada or Mizuno Junko.

*sorry for the blurriness of the pics.  Embarrassed stupid finnicky camera*

Hope you like!
4  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / robot fabric backed-afghan on: June 08, 2008 09:54:31 AM
I hope I'm posting this in the right place.

I made this afghan using my knitwit daisy loom. I was testing out a graph I drew. I lined it with a plain blue cotton fabric and backed it with a robot print cotton flanel, that I also overlapped to the front to make a border. Even with the border it's really small. The completed size is 26" x 36".

*sorry it's blurry*
here's a close-up of the robot's head and some of the border.
