Do you plan on lying in this survey in order to make you look more loli?
No, that would be stupid, btw, how could I be more loli XD ok, no.

How long have you been into lolita?
I knew about it back in 2005, but I didn’t started wearing it well until 2007

How did you find out about lolita?
When I went to Canada and saw a really beautiful girl in a shiro Lolita dress, I didn’t know what it was, I just knew I loved it. One year later a friend showed me some scans from the G&L bible, and I totally fell in love :3

What's your favorite style?
Right now I don’t know. I think it could be described as sweetie classic Lolita XD

What do you like most about lolita?
The way those clothes make me feel (Pretty, feminine, happy, etc…)

What do you dislike most about lolita?
All that people staring at you, it’s so exasperating. I’ve never liked to get any attention. It’s the price I have to pay, but I think my lovely clothes worth it XD

What's the most difficult thing about being lolita?
All the time I spend to make a good outfit (make up, hair – my hair is a nightmare @_@ - matching colors –I have never been good at it XD – chosing accessories, etc.), and the frustration I feel when I see in the pictures how horrible I look ;____; (I mean, I like how I look when I stare at myself in the mirror, but most of the time the camera hates me, and makes me look bad D8).

What's the best reaction you've gotten in loli?
When a little girl came to our group and she said that we were princess, and then she took a photo with us, I have to admit it, that girl was so cuuute X3

What's the worst reaction you've gotten in loli?
When a girl asked me if I was an EMO D8 OMFG, I was wearing a Baby JSK with cherries for god’s sake! What does Lolita have to do anything with EMOS ¬¬

What's your favorite brand(s)?
Innocent World, Mary Magdelene, Victorian Maiden, Emily Temple Cute, and Baby, the Stars Shine Bight.

What's your favorite accessory?
Necklaces and bracelets *___*

Whats your favourite color combo?
Cream x brown, but I also like very much Pink x black :3

What do you think about black and white combos?
They can look very elegant/cute if you do it right XD

Who or what has the biggest influence on your style?
I don’t really know o.o I admire many girls, but I think daily Lolita in general?

What do you think about lolis with tattoos?
They can look beautiful :3 (Same with pierced lolitas X3)

How often do you dress lolita?
Not very often as I liked to, like once a week XD I don’t really have much time to dress the way I’d want =S

What magazines do you read?
None =P

What music do you listen to?

Puppet Circus skirt in red *___*

Do you own brand?
Yep.

Can you sew?
Well, yes I can, but I hate it =_=.

Do you have more brand or commissioned/self-sewed/off-brand clothes?
That depends XD if you consider bodyline as a brand, then I have more brand clothes, if not, then I have more off brand =P

Do you think brand is worth its price?
Sometimes, it all depends of the print or design.

What was the first brand you bought from?
Angelic Pretty (A blouse)

Angelic pretty is…
A brand with many lovely old pieces I’m dying to get XD.

A brand that sometimes release very beautiful pieces and prints :3

Moitie is…
A brand which most of the designs don’t worth the price (In my opinion of course XD)

Metamorphose is…
Ambivalent.

Emily Temple Cute is…
Extremely cute for everyday life X3.

Bodyline is…
An acceptable store to buy a basic wardrobe.

What's your favorite theme/motif?
Rooms and streets? For example, I totally adore my meta room print, I also love the room print from ETC, the print of houses from Innocent World, etc.

Do you like any other alternative fashions? ( i.e something you wouldn't regularly see on a catwalk)
I loooove hime gyaru style :3 and steampunk. I’d love to try them sometime :3

Would you consider yourself a lolita elitist?
Mmm, I think that as long as the person looks good, I don’t care if it’s brand, off brand or handmade.

Have you ever been posted on lolita_fucks?
Yes XD with my very first outfit jajaja. And I’m very thankful for it, because it helped me to learn faster and better XD

Not as much as before, but sometimes I can see an anime (I haven’t finished Ergo Proxy, and I started it like 3 months ago XD)

Yes.

How many times? (don't lie now)
Twice.

Are you like Momoko?
Well, I don’t like humans, but I’m not that extreme.

Do you want to be like Momoko?
No thanks.

Is Momoko your hero?
Hell! No. I think she is a very sad, lonely and bitter girl.

Mana's work or Novala's work?
I think Novala’s work.

Honestly, what do you think about Mana?
I don’t really care about him XD.

Do you think Mana invented loli?
No, but he is an icon for gothic Lolitas, as Misako for sweets =P

What do you think about Novala?
I don’t care about him either XD

If It’s for something very casual (no make up), 10 minutes lol if I have to do something more, like one hour or two =P

After

So beautiful and comfortable, I want another pair!

Plain, they’re easier to match jajaja

Knee high or higher?

A very long JSK made with cheap fabric. It was very bad made. And the headdress, oh boy, the headdress XD I don’t even want to remember…

Your wardrobe consist of mostly what color?
Black, white, cream and pink

Would you rather sacrifice all your lolita clothes or never be able to wear normal clothes again?
First option, sorry, but I don’t think I could get a good job in what I want with Lolita cloth.

Would you rather be in a world where you are the only person who wears and knows about lolita or live in a world where everyone wears lolita? (as in lolita would be the "normal" attire.)
I’d prefer to be the only one, because a world full of lolitas would be so damn boring.

Would you rather be the designer for major brand with a strict rule that you can't wear lolita at all, or would you rather be able to wear the clothes but all of them will purposely be the opposite of what you like?
Non, I don’t like to design and I’d hate to wear what I don’t like.

If you had to wear one brand for the rest of your life which one would it be?
Innocent World.

Do you read community/forum rules before posting?
Yep

Did you think they didn't apply to you?
No

do you know how to check the memories?
Yes, I do.

how about the search function?
Also.

Have you ever posted a question about petticoats on EGL?
No.

Do you carry a doll/teddy bear with you? Why?
No thanks XD

Do you read books?
I used to, but now I have to read a lot because of the school, so I have no time for complete books XD

Can you recommend any books new lolis would like?
Well, I’d recommended them to read Les Precieuses Ridicules (Moliere), so they can learn that acting like a perfect lady when you are not like that, makes you look like an idiot XD.

What would you do if your significant other told you they didn't like lolita?
I don’t want to say anything about it, because I really don’t know. When you are in love you can make stupid things. But I know I’d be sad and angry.

What would you do if your significant other told you not to wear it anymore?
If he was that direct, I’d send him to hell. But there are some very intelligent guys who drive you to leave your clothes in a way that you don’t notice it, until it’s too late. (That happened to me by the way. At the end he felt bad and begged me to use my Lolita clothes again XD).

Ideally, what would your significant other's style be like?
Steampunk! hahaha.

Have you ever thought about stopping lolita? Why?
Yep, because I thought it could interfere with my future life, but now I don’t really care, I just have to know when and where use my cothes.

Would you rather be stuck in an island with Mana or Novala?
Damn, I thing Novala, at least he speaks XD

Who's your favourite loli model?
Misako, she is the only one I know XD.

What are your favorite 3 places on the net? (that are related to loli)
My Lolita Style, Daily Lolita and… Alice Fururun? lol

How many real life lolita friends (I.E not on the internet) do you have?
7, and if I count boys, I have to say 9 XD

What is the most expensive lolita thing you've bought so far? How much was it?
My pocket embroidery JSK from Baby. It was like 21,000 yens including shipping, but I don’t really remember XD

Do you think there's an age limit to lolita? If so what is it?
No.

Keeping in mind what's released by each brand each season, what's your favourite season?
Spring :3

What do you think about boys who wear loli? (and I mean loli and not aristocrat, ouji, etc)
As long as they look feminine, I don’t have any problem with them XD

Do you have a favorite artist? (as in painter, animator etc.)
Related to Lolita? No XD outside Lolita, Jan Svankmajer.

Name every un-loli aspect of yours.
I don’t think there are any un-loli aspect besides the cloth.

Name all your lolita aspects.
Same answer.

What does lolita mean to you? Is it just a fashion? Is it a lifestyle? A passing phase? Something else completely? Why do you care about the fashion? Please explain yourself as well as possible. Don't be afraid of getting mushy. hell, I encourage you to get mushy.
For me Lolita is cloth and passion. It’s an important part of my life, but I’m not really good explaining what Lolita means for me. I just have to say that it makes me happy, and that is all that matters :3
