:c I didn't mean to discourage you!
You can do musical things that I have no idea how to do! Why do you think you're lacking in skill? Chords and key signatures are all I have, and I'm still shaky on understanding anything other than major and minor chords.
Why do you think I was keen to do a project with you in the first place?

However, if it makes it easier or less intimidating then I can stop talking about music with you?

=_=" Godddd I'm not THAT old!
I read that deviant art guys original book thingy on the cutie mark crusaders, but it was so well done I wasn't sure if they were canon or not so I thought it better not to assume.
Adorableness is very important, I must say. I dress and hang out with sweet lolita people, and we're all addicted to adorable stuff >.<

Um.
*pokes the body with a stick*
...shall I call for a post mortem sir?
No. We all know what they died of.
...sir?
A cuteness overload.
They did?
Yes. You can tell by the way their eyes have turned into cupcakes.
Oh, so they have.
*pokes the eye cupcakes*
Want to try one, sir?
No. Thankyou.

EDIT: That hypothetical situation took a turn for the weird but I'm sticking with it >:l

I wish wish wish I could dress in EGL. But I can neither afford it, nor (and this is the major one, 'cause I could afford it) can I pull it off.
It's adoooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooorable.

You're killin me mate, you're killin me with all of your greatness. Let's just leave it at that.

Whatevrrrrrrr~ Lame excuse is lameeeee
I think: Everyone can pull it off.
Boys in our group do dresses and aristocrat about equally, and some of them in dresses are like 180cm tall, which is great, cos then there are loli's as tall as me >w<
And the age group goes from about 17 to 35 so you're pretty much in the middle?
And pretty much every body type can look fancy and fabulous~
You could totally pull it off and I don't even need to know what you look like to know! >.<

Give you slaaang!

My hair is too dark; when I shave, it leaves a shadow. Pulling the hair out is an option-- and I've done it--but it takes a really long time. Other than that, my fashion sense is terrible and that stuff is really expensive. I once had the ambition to sew my own stuff but, like everything else I do, I can start the project-- and even get almost done, but I can't finish it. So many things I almost finished.

Yeeeeeah bru B)

Aw dang, shadow... close shave + makeup?
...that would be an experiment and a half, actually, testing if makeup can smooth skintone like that... hm... I'm sure there are foundations out there that are thick/ enough...
Eh, I only got taught how to do makeup in the last year and a half anyway, so I don't really know many tricks... In fact the things I look up the most are how to look like a boy .w. //cosplay but thats another story

Oh but youtube is an amazing thing, it already has tutorials on this sort of thing~ http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=OPySlqC0mDk
Also derp I buy my shit from china and its like 100% better than anything I find in the shops + pretty cheap + custom sized. Fan + Friend is my friend =w=

Er,, that was supposed to be "give me your slang", but it totally didn't work out that way.

Stahp, you're making me want to go look at dresses again.

Argh, and now I'm gonna have to start experimenting with makeup.
There isn't really a big EGL community here but I wouldn't mind being it.

[EDIT]
I'm just off learning about Milanoo being bad-baaad. Livejournal has an EGL community so I usually go there when I want to get my fix; look at the posts, go to the sites, realize how much that kind of thing would run me for, back slowly away.

LOL it totally didnt work at allllll.

Yeahhh run far away from milanoo. *hisses at it*
Not that cheap necessarily means bad- Bodyline is fairly cheap and trustworthy, fan + friend has always been good quality to me. Baby the Stars Shine Bright/ Metamorphose/ Alice and the Pirates and those other really well respected brands are very expensive.

I spend like...hours looking at loli dresses and internally wailing in pain and jealousy :'U

Eh, around my city there are like, idk, 300 members total, with 30 being actually active and having teaparties and stuff? Smaller communities are better because they are unable to fracture and become cliquey, I reckon. And they're so helpfulllllll

*despair, despair*

It's all about putting on a show, teaparties are fucking just my thing, I bet. I love to perform, and there's no better way to perform than dressing and behaving like an aristocrat.

Indeed, indeed.
*clinks cup with yours*
Perhaps get some dapper clothing and have one anyway? The good thing about them is that you can have it in a nice park and don't have to worry about home stuffs (like cleaning up or permission)
Do your friends like to dress up?

NO
;n;

But my friends are mostly boys.

I want to go and sit at the mall in lolita and read. It's totally putting on a show.

It's the same thing as singing, or acting, or whatever. I love to perform, it's my favourite thing. It's why I'm ok with people thinkin' my songs are funny. I having people enjoy me, even if it's just taking note of me on the bench in the mall.

'Cause they'd have to notice me. I'd look totally out of place.

What's your theme? Do you have a theme or a colour you stick to? It's really hard to find items in green, another reason I haven't purchased anything.

I KNOW RIGHT!?!?
This bias against green things seriously pisses me off. I mean honestly. Emerald is a BEAUTIFUL colour, and they have deep blues and dark reds all the time!! T-T And I'm not a huge fan of mint....
This is only green skirt I have found..

It is super fun to hang out in lolita ;D
You end up getting people taking sneaky photos, or actually coming up and asking to take a photo with you. I honestly feel like a celebrity or somethin' when I dress up like it, its just way too much fun >.< Plus the wigs totally make you feel like you're in the perfect disguise~

Oh, that sucks about your friends not being keen on dressing up.

Hmmm.... Well, as you can tell, I'm on the hunt for some green as well.
My first loli dress was pink and checkered- country style, because its really easy to find normal items to match- white socks, straw hats. Second one was a pink princess/hime style, because I had wigs and some classy jewelry and wanted something with long sleeves.
Both pink because having things in the one pallette makes it easier, i guess?
Third one was a cross between doll style and school uniform, in dark red. I don't have any gothic lolita because...idk, I already have a lot of like, corset/flowing skirt/black clothing, and when I'm going loli I'd rather be over the top and super bright.
Ahhhhh I'm going to ramble about clothing....

So now the next things I want to get is something more classical, like, a bonnet and some kind of brassy/brown/cream type colour scheme, maybe with flowers or a classical artwork print instead of the block colours that I feel safe in.
Aaaaaand my personal project atm is erhm...have you heard of nerfpunk?
I want to make a loli dress in black, bright orange and yellow =w= nerf lolita, I shall call it, and all the lolita shall be horrified but I won't caaaare~ *prances away*
However, I hit a stumbling block in that, well, I have no idea what I'm doing. So the fabric just sits there until I will eventually learn to sew better....

Sewing is really a lot of easy... until you're sewing FOR someone. Then you have to make stuff fit.

Ok-- the reason I am skimping on posts with you today is that I basically went back and poke Gaiaonline again. 'cause you mentioned it in a description or two, somewhere.

So I'm back and forth.
Wanna make a thread we'll chat there?
--actually, no. that shit goes away after like, a day.

So... stay here, with me.

I think sweet is cute, ('cause it's sweet) but I think I'd do better in elegant types, like gothic, but in green. Green, I'm told, really would complement my skin tone and hair colour-- I can imagine something long and emerald, though I'm not picky about having a dark green. Mint is nice too, it's just harder to wear unless you're awfully pale.

Aah, so how far do you go, then? corsets, bloomers-- and wait, how do you afford all this anyway!?

[edit]
pff, I'm stupid, you just SAID you have corsets.

So, you don't have a signature colour, then?

Have you sewn stuff for yourself before, then?

My bloomers are like the best thing ever. Sometimes I just wear them on the outside as if they are super frilly shorts. Only old people give me looks of surprise and horror xD
I only have one pair of bloomers though.
Afford? Ehhhhh, I guess I buy cheap things? My corsets were all $20 accumulated since I was like, 15, bloomers $20, dresses always <$100...Idk man, I just dont buy normal clothes, so when I buy some fancy item of clothing I'm like 'well thats as good as a new tshirt'.
I got to the stage where 75% of my wardrobe was dressups in my earlier days at university...so I just dressed as a fairy or pirate or zombie or whatever every day >w>
So I guess I afford it by not buying anything else AHAHAHAHA

=w=" Ah, yes, I used to do background music and theme songs for a Gaian wizard guild (GEIOW) and a few other roleplays I was in. Just for fun, to try to encourage people to write things and feel inspired. The stories all petered out, inevitably; Some writers died, some grew up and got lives, some got too sick, some had out-of-character disputes, some got eaten by tumblr. Various things which happen to any community, I suppose.
I recently ...ah.... I recently...uh... haven't logged into gaia...or skype or facebook...for a while... ah... because... um... things.... u_u'
Its kinda strange and empty here though, so uh, yeah, go frolic in le gaia~
I swear we probably talk here way too much anyway ^^"

Eh, I guess my signature colour is pink? >.<

Go to dress rehearsal! I didn't realize you were in a show ATM.
It's only like, 2:00. I'll be good for another three hours or so.

Well what dya know, looks like the forums have a mobile version! It's all buttony and cooool, but now I have to battle the great and terrible autocorrect!
Forgive me if strange words pop up in the middle of sentences =w=
Hehehhh

But hey, you never answered my question about sewing! If you know things then I DEMAND you tell me! ...because yeah my attempts have mostly involved cutting a hole in a piece of rectangular fabric and then contemplating on where I went wrong...

Falled asleeeep.

Sewing is.... look at an analogous pattern. Look at a dress pattern and figure out how it goes together, then look at one of your dresses that you already have.
You can now approximate anything.
It's easier for the top than for skirts, because skirts will have a lot of layers, or like... bunched? I don't remember all my sewing lingo.
I don't think you really asked any Q. What do you want to know?

Well, I doubt you can give specific answers, I guess. Alright, how do you sew a hem on a curved neckline? That one gets me every time. Always ends up wrinkled and strange looking >:l

You cut little notches. Again, I don't remember my sewing lingo, but you cut wedges or triangles out of the fabric so that, basically, it doesn't bunch, it comes together nicely. (edit: overlapping sections might even be ok, certainly preferable to uncontrolled wrinkling.)

Er,, cut wedges out of the part you folded over, I mean. Don't cut out wedges from the front part.

Hmm okay I'll try that next time ^^"
I usually run into that problem when trying to make tunics. And then everything gets complicated by that keyhole slit bit that you've got to cut otherwise you can't get it over your head erghghg. I guess the same principal applies to going around the edges on that bit too.
Which I guess, doesn't matter too much if its dodgy because its meant to be peasanty anyway. Thats my excuse anyway.
I hear that your continent has a lot of medieval reenactment societies too?

We do, I suppose. I haven't gotten into that because I was always into the armour and fighting, which is expensive and dangerous. There's less-than-historical societies, which I think I'd prefer (mass LARPs with spells and "you can only be hit so many times" rules), but the closest one to me is a little farther than I'd like, and there seems to be a very strict hierarchy involved-- no just showing up and hitting people with nerf swords.

I'm not sure what you mean about tunics. I've never hemmed one, but as for the head-hole, I thought you're s'posed to cut a slit from the neckhole into the shoulder. Maybe put a button on it or something. Of course, you could also just make it a larger headhole, like a v-neck t-shirt.
Ooh, you could make a tunic that is open but folds and buttons closed. I'll.. I'll have to draw a picture or something.

I haven't seen that clip-- I haven't been keeping up with the Vocaloid stuff. I'm really mostly a fan of the old Supercell stuff and a bunch of Deco*27.

Yeah, its annoying when that stuff gets political and bureaucratic.
Distance is equally annoying- I don't have a car so public transport and my own two feet can only get me so far.
I can't afford armor or fighting gear either, but usually I can find other stuff to do at meetups (sewing/archery/music/people watching). I guess it can be dangerous in some groups, but the ones I'm involved in aren't allowed to use metal combat weapons.
Those ones with spells sound fun!!
Yar, are we thinking about the same style of tunic?

Eh, I don't keep up with vocaloid stuff really either, sometimes people just send me to youtube and I stumble across ones that I like >w<
*looks up supercell*
This music reminds me of like, a less orchestral accoustic kinda Yuki Kajiura? Is that what the old stuff sounds like?
*looks up Deco*27 *
