Just Some News: New Web Review Series "Drawn to Fail"

So I've finally started working on my dream project! A video review series that is all about the fail of a good portion of Animated films. I thought you frillies would be interested in checking it out as the first episode is all about the rip off Snow White sequel "Happily Ever After"! I will admit that the first episode isn't perfect but if this show becomes more successful, this could be the place for me to start posting over reviews including Lolita Fashion Movie reviews!

Write down what you think in the comments below and please if you do, like it on the video page via Facebook. The more views this video gets the more likely I can produce better content for the channel along with La Vida Frills and my many other projects!

Hope you rufflebutts like it and if you are dying to see a certain bad animated film or music video get ripped a part, let me know as well!

LVF's New Addiction: Lalaloopsy Dolls

Last night, My friend Crystal and myself went on some errands and just happened to stop in the big Toys R Us in Times Square. Little did we know that we would find an extremely new collection addiction in our midst. Step over to the side My Little Pony and welcome Lalaloopsy Dolls. Now, some might think these dolls look a little on the creepy side. But to me these are a Lolita's dream doll. They have a slight gothic tang of rag doll style to them but with tons of sweet elements all around. Just read their description:

"The Lalaloopsy Dolls™ were once rag dolls who magically came to life when their very last stitch was sewn. They each have different personalities that come from the fabrics that were used to make them. They live in a colorful, silly world, and with your love, their magic can go on forever!"

I just love every single aspect about them and now am dying to collect some of the Mini versions. They come in a variety of styles, colors, and even ones for boys! Personally I'm having a lover affair over Crumbs Sugar Cookie, Marina Anchors and the new special edition doll Suzette La Sweet (hope they make a mini of her eventually!) Interested in seeing more of these pieces of rag doll perfection? Check them out!

So what do you think? Like 'em, hate 'em? I can't get enough of them! I see some new appearances of these babies on my christmas list this year! Do you girls have any toy addictions? Tell me about 'em!

"She's So Unusual: Lolita Fashion in the Media" Overview

So my panel has passed and gone with success! Though it took a idol to open the show for me, I've seen stranger and have been the stranger thing prior to many things as well. But I must confess, I was extremely nervous to present this and would have liked to have practiced more. But overall it was an experience I'd love to present again (maybe at another east coast convention in the spring? Hint hint!)

For those of you that might be been interested to see the panel but couldn't make it, don't worry there is a video coming soon! It was shot by a friend of mine (thanks Ann!) and should be available in the future that isn't as distant.

Here's a small spoiler for you in picture form, taken by my lovely friend Yuuki!

One disappointing factor of the panel was I ran out of time to play the game at the end. But good news for you, I still have a pack of prizes! So the question for you is, would you like to win something? If so answer the following question:

Who to you is your Lolita Fashion Icon?
The best answer gets a prize!
Contest ends on November 25th!

(by the way, I while ago someone won a prize on the blog for a contest I have and yes I still have your prize. If you ever see this please contact me as it's almost been a year and I need to send this to you!)

So excited? You should be! More Comic Con updates coming soon!

NYCC After Math Post #1


So I only a day ago returned from my adventures at New York Comic Con/Anime Fest 2011 and by far it was one of the most insane years possible. I didn't get to do too many guest related things or interviews, but I did present a wildly successful panel and attended some of the coolest presentations of all time. There's a lot for me to write about and my fingers are just crying at the prospect of all the button smashing about to take place, but don't worry there's a lot of content for you lovely frillies to check out here and on my sister blog Twenty Four Lies Per Second for tons of nerdy and lolita coverage for your enjoyment!

In the meantime, I'd like to mention a big thank you to MTV Geek for mentioning my panel (and when I mean mentioning I mean commenting on....) as a list of their "Most Off Beat Panels" at NYCC. Because when you know it's a legit comment about your knowledge in a topic can when it's confirmed by a channel that should have changed their name like 10 years ago. You know cause they don't actually play music anymore - irony, it's cool. Also major props go to the picture, super special yo.

So, excited to hear about the panel? Wanting to possibly win a prize? Be prepared!
