I would so love to do a costume like this:

I just found out that they're having a gothic lolita tea party at Middle Tennessee Anime Con this weekend. If I'd known about it a lot sooner, maybe I could have found someone who could make me a dress like this. but too late now. :waaaah:

I want to be a gothic lolita girl. I wish I knew someone around my town who could make one for me. I don't want to ask my mother to. *sigh*

Hm...why don't you take a look on eBay? There are several lolita shops with very nice things for pretty decent prices. My sister and I have done some commissions for EGL, but we're really busy right now with ACen approaching @_@;

I do hope you find something ^^ Good luck!

I absolutely adore the Elegant Gothic Lolita style too. We are in the midst of designing new Loli and J-Rock gear ourselves too. I just love it to death!

The gothic and lolita bibles often have patterns right in them so you could try making something yourself! That is if you can translate the directions, ;P

They can be downloaded i'm sure. i've seen lots of the photos on various downloading sites. But the patterns are rarely uploaded...
I actually have the first Gothic and Lolita Bible which my girfriend brought back from japan as a souvenier, heehee!

Oh my gosh.. Any chance you might scan some of the patterns? :D I bet that would be really hard to do, actually. Shoot. ^^

I managed to cobble together a costume for the Elegant Gothic Lolita tea party! What do you think? Did it turn out OK? Please leave comments on the gallery post if you like it. ^_^

just google image search elegant gothic lolita.

I got my dress at a vintage clothing store. Me and my friends are going to modify it so it has more lace and a nice apron.

I think that an excellent place for Gothic Lolita is http://limebarb.com/store/egl/egl.htm
lots of stuff to choose from, but a tad pricy...

That's WAY too pricey. Wow. What a markup from the cost of materials. I'd rather just teach myself to sew than spend that much.

Actually, that's not very expensive... You should see what the real versions cost!! lol

Not expensive compared to the real versions, sure. But expensive compared to the cost of the materials. If I consider that my time is worth more than the cost of buying something, I will buy it. But in this case, I would rather learn to make it myself, because my time may be valuable, but it's not as valuable as those prices.

Limebarb makes really good stuff thu.
I got my fuku from them.

also dont discount thrift stores. you can find alot of stuff that can be easly modifired to EGL.

Making your own stuff is always better, of course, you're right about that. We always raid vintage stores for old clothes, just for the materials. They are indeed an excellent source of inexpensive fabrics (velvet, lace, tulle,) and detail pieces (bows, ribbons, cute buttons, etc) which can easily be surgically removed or altered. I recently scored an amazing Lolita top with a huge lizard frill neck and a long ribbon bow neck tie which will be integral base piece of my crossplay for AN 04.

Mana actually has his own clothing line in Japan but it's HORRENDOUSLY expensive, it's about 50,000+ yen for a dress or outfit and at least 20,000 yen for a shirt. Very nice looking outfits though, if only I had the frickin money.

Goodwill is a good store to get old prom dresses and such. They might not have black velvet or frilly aprons, but it's usually a cheap way to get lots of velvet and lacey things. I've also found nice things at novelty and costume stores after Halloween for very little.

taking the lacy things and velvets off of thoose dresses and putting them onto a new dress is also a good idea....especially when whe prom dresses and such are wayyyyyyyyyyy to pink and girly to be properly elegant gothic....(planing to go to prom as Gackt from Miserable hohohohohoho)
