Hi, I'm new to cosplay.com and I was wondering if anyone here would know of some sites that can help me perfect the Gothic Lolita look better. ^_^*

I would like to do a better Gothic Lolita Mana cosplay, ^_^

Thanks. ^_^

I have some links, but they are on my computer at work. I'll send them to you tomorrow. There's a link for baby stars shine bright or something like that. I have not found an english site at all yet. I would love to see if someone on this board knows of one.

*I think niki might have some gothic lolita stuff*

There's been a bit of discussion regarding this ^-~ One of the threads you may find useful is http://forums.cosplay.com/showthread.php?s=&threadid=3700 started by Chobrat. Someone, somewhere, in one of these threads, posted a few links to some nice EGL sites that are in english. I can't find all the links the person posted, but here are a couple...
Luscious Dilettante Gothic & Lolita: http://www.slucky.net/lolita/
Rose & Thorn: http://www.angelfire.com/ab6/roseandthorn/index.html
And then there's Metamorphose temps de fille's ENGLISH site: http://www.metamorphose.gr.jp/english/metamorphoseeng.html

Japanese pages: (Now THESE links I know, muaha.)
Baby, The Stars Shine Bright: http://www.babyssb.co.jp/
Atelier-Pierrot: http://www.netlaputa.ne.jp/~pierrot-/
h. NAOTO: http://www.s-incjp.com
Atelier Boz: http://www.boz.v-shop.ne.jp
Moi-même-Moitié: http://www.rakuten.co.jp/moi-meme-moitie/
metamorphose temps de fille: http://www.metamorphose.gr.jp/
Angelic Pretty: http://www.angelicpretty.com
Putumayo: http://www.putumayo-home.com/
Union Jack: http://www.unionjack.co.jp
Kazuko Ogawa's 'Gothic Lolita Shop': http://www.h2.dion.ne.jp/~harajuku
Innocent World: http://www.innocentworld.tv
Na+H: http://www.Penet.gr.jp/Na+H/

Uhhh ya... There are more Japanese ones, but I'll stop now before I further prove that I have issues. It wouldn't be quite so strange for me to know so many, if I could actually... oh... I don't know... READ JAPANESE. But I digress. Still! Be they English or Japanese, the pages are definitely out there.

If I wasn't such a lazy bum, I'd fire up my scanner and make a webpage. But I am :3 (a lazy bum) Maybe later, LOL.

haai hai ._.\/ Anytime. The Gothic Lolita Bibles are ultra-spiffy, if you can get ahold of them. I'm having a dickens of a time tracking down #1 and #2, hehe.

Ohya, and I'm a 'tard. I forgot to mention earlier, Moi-même-Moitié is Mana's store :3 If you're researching to cosplay better as a Gothic Lolita Mana, then I guess that's as good a place to start as any? Hehe

You can get them reasonably priced, at least the ones that are still in print, at www.fujisan.com.
