Irrasshaimase~! While looking through LiveJournal's communities, I found there were places for Elegant Gothic Lolitas of New England, Texas, California, two for Florida... but none for the Tristate Area. After pondering for a while, I e-mailed mozzi with the idea of making something of the sort--thus, tristatedolls was born!
With history out of the way, I may as well introduce myself... my name is Menthe, Loli-chan of New Jersey's Suburbia. As is probably usual, I got into the Elegant Gothic Lolita subculture after being exposed to Malice Mizer--Mana-sama in particular--and the other lovely j-rock bands that flaunt their pretty bois in lacey dresses. I'm somewhat of an overgrown child, living for tea parties and dress-up and walks in the parks, and fancy myself something of a living doll. As previously mentioned, I adore Visual Kei (Malice Mizer, Moi dix Mois, Lareine, oh-so-many others), manga, anime, etc. It's a pleasure to meet you! *curtsies*
Feel free to join, post introductions, pictures, anything you wish... Yes, pictures are lovely: let everyone see just how elegantly adorable the Loli-chan of this area are! ~.^
