I wish there were more...

I'm curious, what would you like to see more of in the fashion? That includes colors, prints, styles, body types, hair colors, interests, anything!

I'm working on a grey and black dress right now, and I'd looove to see more grey in the fashion. Elegant without looking like you're going to a funeral. I'd also like to see more forest prints, gnomes and little spotted mushrooms and woodland critters. And girls with crazy colored hair, the bottom half of my hair was bright magenta for a while, and it would have been nice to have more girls to talk to about "Can I wear this color with my hair color or will that look weird?" sort of thing.

I wish Loli came in bigger sizes and more prints. I'd honestly like to see some more plaid/tartan and pastels, like peach.

Bling. I am a sucker for big jewelry but I wear sweet lolita so unless it's fruit or a pastry or a bow it looks award to wear like a finger armor ring. And watches. Lord knows how hard it is to coordinate a decent watch.

Halter style jsks are pretty cool and look nice for the summer.

Purple, green, and yellow colors definitely. Like a nice pastel green or dark purple. But they would be hard to coordinate with regular items right? ^^"

i'd like to see them stock larges. asia doesnt' like the size large for some reason, and i'm just a bit too big for medium, so it sucks ;___;

and i'd like to see more ouji, but maybe i'm not looking hard enough...

You're totally right about that, I see maybe one or two people in boystyle at most events, if that. I think girls are too attached to their frills (I know I am) and there aren't enough guys in the fashion to merit more than that.

i'm actually liking ouji more than girl lolita, i'd like to be able to base some of my creations off stuff i've seen instead of combining loads of ideas pulled from different pieces...;___;

Forest prints on lolita's would be so cute! I think a nature line of Lolita would go over very well and I know I would buy forest inspired/patterned peices.

Now I want to draw a picture of a nature Lolita...

Black and white lolita done right! Everyone seems to have so much hate for it because most ita's wear black and white. Its a little discouraging that everyone is like "Its sooo over done!" or "Looks like a cheap maid!" When I haven't seen a good b & w done is ages. ;^; I could be wrong, because, I don't lurk egl that much.

I also think we need more Aristocrats. ._. And Sailor Lolita..

I totally agree. Every weekend (well almost) at the boat club, I find the perfect places for photos. If only I had a sailor dress D:

I'd like to see more Sailor Lolita's AND Hime Lolita's. Hime's are a dying breed, I'd say. Haven't seen one, EVER. Except in pictures. And I haven't seen any Sailor's either. I'm making on though :3.

Also, I'd definetely like to see more colours like peach, lilac and mint green. And patterns like polka dot (not gaudy polka dots- nice ones).

And to those of you who are requesting larger sizes from Asia, don't expect much. In Asia, a large is like a medium. Asian girl's are TINY! Well, most of them are.

I do love hime lolitas. And it's something fairly easy to pull off with a normal lolita wardrobe, add big hair, some pearls, a crown, and some gloves and voila! It's a shame people don't do it more often.

I do like guro, but I think the biggest problem people have is first of all getting any form of fake blood on stuff they've either slaved over to make, or spent a couple hundred bucks on. Plus, costume-style lolitas just aren't as common because you can't really wear it every day. It's the same reason why wa-loli isn't as common either.

Yeah, there needs to be more browns in the fashion, perhaps not a main color, but working it in with blue as the main color will work.

I once did Hime Lolita, but, I never posted it here, because I wasn't proud of it in the end. My make up was really bad, and F+F screwed up the length.
Maybe I'll post it after all...
