Join this group and everyone can help you out. DON'T BUY ON EBAY!!!!

There are a bunch of store links on the forum there, and ratings by long time lolitas. Whatever you do, follow the rules, or these girls will tear you a new one. Seriously.

What I personally would recommend (although I have not ordered from them yet) is Fan Plus Friend. Not the best dresses allegedly, but they're OKAY and fairly priced I've heard.

Drop me a line if you need any tips^-^ I'm not a pro, but I know the rules and can help you (pay no attention to my cheapo loli dress in my pics, it was my first try, and a big mistake!!) Don't make the same mistake I did and spend way too much on a junky EBAY dress.

Kinda weird I was the first one to respond... anyway, I do loli sometimes and it's a fun and glamorous fashion (be careful not to call it cosplay!!). The most important things to pay attention to in lolita are lace, makeup, and being tasteful. You don't ever, EVER want cheap lace or heavy makeup, and make sure you don't buy anything that looks short (above the knees) or sexy (low cut). I made the cheap lace and bad hair mistake my first time, and the other lolitas were not thrilled... okay, they were straight up OFFENDED. There's a lot of criticism in this "lifestyle" so take it, but not personally, and learn from it!

Hehe no, it was actually here on CR in that group . I have a few loli pics up in the forum, but my first one was a disaster. Now the very expensive dress is just a Halloween costume, and I'm sticking to casual lolita until I have enough money saved up for a really nice Angelic Pretty or Baby The Stars Shine Bright dress. You'll see what I mean about "constructive criticism" in that group. It can get ugly...

Yeah I had been looking all over, I know Buycostumes.com has a lolita outfit, >.< I have the wig its not exactly like the package, but if you have a bigger head then me, and longer neck go for it!... >.< dunno how we can tell that...

but yeah its hard to find em cause petti coats are like exepensive, and those darn dress sellers are stingy and will sell just the dress for like 40+ so all the accessories make the total over 100, and the shipping is always like 40 bucks, >.<

but buycostumes shipping is shipping b/c its a halloween costume. you can try it if you like purple thats why i didn't get it b/c its purple. I just went to thrift stores and put together my lolita outfit. Just look for babydoll ish. thats what they mimic any way.

psh f, them, lolita started from copying fn babydolls, not all of their dresses are to the extreme. If you thought you looked fab then you must have. Not every one has like hundreds of dollars to waste on one outfit. seriously.

You should remind them Lolita means little girl, so if you look like a little girl then you are pulling it off. *snaps fingers*

psh. I hate snobby ppl.
