Small (1pt)= less than 2 hrs. crafting time or less than $10 for supplies

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!

- 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.

Yeah, first time swappers are totally welcome as long as you've been here for more than a month and have more than 15 posts, which you do. So join us!

Would it help if I extended sign-ups? How much more time do you think I should add?
