I think you've got a solid start-- I like the articles and ideas, your layout's nice, and it's pretty all-encompassing. In the future it might be neat to single out a particular style-- say, wa-loli one issue, country loli the next-- and focus in detail on how to get that look (giving plenty of examples, of course).

Because I'm a grammar and spelling nut, I am also going to suggest finding a proofreader to make sure your writing is as eloquent and proper as a good lolita's should be. I'd be happy to help if you want to send me proofs, but feel free to use anyone whose grammar and spelling skills you trust, and who you know isn't going to mess around with your writing.

Anyway, nicely done, and I look forward to upcoming issues!

I like it Easy to read, well written..I was a bit surprised by the cosplay lolita article though, I expected another page where would be explained what the spirit of a lolita is and how you're supposed to be a real loli, but it wasn't there, which made the article come across a bit..I don't know, a bit rude or elitist. Like, I know something you don't, and that doesn't match with the gentle, explaining to people who are new to it, tone of the rest of the e-zine. I hope there will be an article about it in the future?

I think it's a good e-zine, I'll definitly be reading the next issue ^___^(I liked the part about Kaori Yuki )

I really enjoyed reading this! There's a variety of articles, and I loved how you incoporated the Cosplay/Lolita article. I do have to agree with Penny_Dreadful in the sense that you should get a proofreader. I know plenty of people that would like to help, including myself. Still, I can't wait to see the next issue!

Very nice job, and a nice Loli introduction for people like me that aren't involved (Yet?) in the Loli scene.

Suggestion? Run everything through a spell-checker, just to be safe. There were a few little errors here and there, but hardly worth stressing over.

Very awesome job!

Midoriko, the ezine looks good. agree with the above statement on the proof reading.

i am a writer so just a few minor nitpicks, ensure there is no copyright infringement on any of the images, make sure you at least credit the original author if they are not your own images (just cover yourself blah-blah-blah).

you probably want to ensure the links are clickable. if these are static pages (pictures of screens) and not really coded-into-the-page, if you have access to HTML you may want a glossary on the page with clickable links to everything you list on the page (like a table of navigation or something)

i think it is a great start.
