Admins, if you have questions, please ask :) We don't mean to intrude on communities, but we'd like to spread the word.

We are opening a gabalnara store in the U.S. this will be our first batch order.

GABALNARA AMERICAN WHOLESALE

For the next 2 weeks (APRIL 14th to APRIL 27th), we will be taking pre-orders for wigs.  We will extend to 3 weeks if people need more time.

After we collect pre-order orders, it will take a maximum of 18 days for the gabalnara to make and ship to us, could be sooner.

We are in direct contact with the people working at Gabalnara and we are trying to start a gabalnara business in the United States.

If we succeed, we will continue and have a store with more varieties of wigs to choose from.  We need to prove to Gabalnara that Americans are interested in buying their wigs. We could be the first successful wholesellers of gabalnara wigs.

If you are interested in pre-ordering, please go the link below for how to order instructions.

Hello everyone. Ever since I got into lolita I always wanted to go with a group of fellow lolitas to Disneyland. I'm not sure if a similar post has ever been made and if there has I guess I am resurrecting the idea. Please let me know if anyone is able to go somewhat regularly and what days are good for you. Or if anyone knows of any groups that already do this, I would appreciate being directed to them. Thanks very much and I look forward to everyone's feedback.

I know it's been a LONG while since I first posted to introduce myself, back when I didn't know that FIDM was out to kill me with an overload of homework in addition to my 35hr a week work schedule. :)  Anyhow, even though I can't often attend I do like to keep up with events going on in L.A. concerning Japanese culture and was curious if any of you were considering attending this event.

Apparently there will be a live DJ, fashion show, Hello Kitty appearance, and a signing with Simone Legno.  Here is the official list for you!

The Japan Consulate presents: "Japan. Endless Discovery."
"To convey our heartfelt gratitude for the support we received after the 2011 Great East Japan Earthquake and tsunami, the Consulate-General of Japan in Los Angeles and Japan Business Association of Southern California will hold a public appreciation event: "Japan. Endless Discovery."

We will be taking over the popular shopping center The Grove, with activities throughout the day for the whole family, special guest star signings, and special stage shows!

I still don't know if I'm going myself, it's going to come down to a showdown between me and my CAD I final.  However, I thought I'd pass the information along and if I manage to nail the final to the wall early on, perhaps meet up with some of you lovely ladies for a face to face introduction!



P.S.  Friend me on facebook if you might go to the event so I know who I'm looking for! My searchable name is Brianna Bo Hannah <3

Hi Everyone,

I'm trying to gauge interest in a Paris in a cup/ tea party for Valentines day. No date as of yet, most likely a Saturday in mid to late February.

1. Can be up to 28 people
2. Will be around $45 per person (depending on number of people)
3. Has to be paid in advance
4. No refunds, possibly if exchangeable if someone is willing to take the spot.


The $45 is all for the tea service which includes: "A full Tea service of aromatic pots of tea served with freshly-baked warm scones with cream and jam, assorted tea sandwiches and petite savories, salad*, and petit fours. Iced tea, or lemonade or coffee offered upon request. *You may substitute soup for salad or you may add a soup course for an additional $5.00 per guest. "

Link to the tea shop: http://www.parisinacupteasalon.com/

There would also be some kind of additional event of gifting valentines for everyone, or raffle, Secret Admirer (Secret Santa).

Let me know your thoughts!!
