Location: Pittsburgh, PA / St. Louis, MO / Daytona Beach, FL (yes I live in 3 places)
Relationship Status: Taken
Sexual Orientation: Bi-curious
Occupation: Engineering Student at SLU
Children: No thanks.
Pets: A Chihuahua named Chi-Chi
Siblings: One sister.
Interests: A wide variety of things. I like girly stuff like cooking and baking and sewing and, well, LOLITA. But I also like airplanes, machines, cars, mechanical stuff in general, getting my hands filthy in the machine shop at school, and more. I hope to be an aircraft mechanic someday as well as a pilot and engineer. I've already got flight time in a small Cessna plane. I enjoy fencing and crew as sports (though I sadly don't do them anymore) and I used to be captain of the girls fencing team in H.S. w00t. I don't really like anime much anymore but I have a soft spot for Rose of Versailles and Utena. I like a lot of the older stuff too like Candy Candy, Hime-chan no Ribbon, and more. I grew up on Sailor Moon, Rayearth, Wedding Peach, and other magical girl series. I used to cosplay but not anymore. Not enough time/motivation. I love videogames, especially the Final Fantasy series (VII and Tactics!) and I enjoy versus games like Dead or Alive, Bushido Blade and Soul Calibur. Big fan of Zelda too. I also like platform games like Crash Bandicoot (FAVORITE) and Spyro the Dragon. And Katamari <3 I did glassblowing in H.S. and I used to go horseback riding a lot as a child. I like surfing in Florida and snowboarding up in PA. Once upon a time I used to assemble garage kits. I guess you could say I am both a very rori person and a very non-rori person. x3
Lolita style: Sweet, gothic, classic...anything you can think of. I refuse to wear anything black x white (unless maybe sailor loli) because it reminds me of itas and maids, haha.
Favorite Lolita brand:Can't decide. Probably Victorian Maiden or Mary Magdalene, though I can't fit into them.
Least favorite Lolita brand: Not sure...maybe like Putumayo because they've been called "the hot topic of Japan" ?? xD Maybe AP because their stuff is always too short on me. >(
How long have you been into the fashion? Since 2005ish?
Do you dress in the style or admire it? Both!

Why do you think people would enjoy doing lolita-esque things/going to meet ups with you? Because I am really just in it for the fun. I try not to obssess about coordinates and outfits (though sometimes I just do...lol.)
Tell us about your life and what you want to do with it: I think I mentioned above that I hope to be an engineer, pilot, and or aircraft mechanic someday. I am also passionate about English Lit and my real dream is to be a writer of sci fi, fantasy, and contemporary fiction, but the engineering stuff is plan "A" because being a writer during a recession is just a bad idea, lol. I won't find a job!
If you could swap lives with a person for a week, who would it be and why? I have no idea. Probably my boyfriend just so I could better understand the crap he has to put up with at work. X_x;
Make up your own question and answer it: Why am I studying engineering? Because I want a job someday! (haha I dunno...that's what most people ask me when they realize I'd rather be a writer.)
Post 1 or more pictures of yourself here.
How did you find this community and why did you decide to join I don't recall how I found it exactly...I think on one of my friend's userinfo pages! And I thought I could make more friends, especially lolitas overseas. :)
