Alright I have a question to open up the first discussion.

What is your opinion on using Japanese words when speaking in formal lolita settings? I'll be going to Novala's tea party this week and personally I'm hoping not to hear any extra Japanese bits thrown into the mix at the party. It's always seemed horribly otaku-ish too me or wampanese. Personally I think its just silly to start using Japanese words and expressions to pepper your conversations.

Anyone else?

I couldn't agree more

Um, from what I understand "wampanese" is wanna be Japanese yes? ^^;;; If I understand the word correctly then in that case I completely agree with what you're saying. What I think most people have yet to realize is that the mentality behind Japanese lolita is so different than here in the united states most people don't really understand what it is that they're trying to achieve when they think that they want to be Japanese in order to be more lolita. While I understand many in Japan think you can't really be lolita if you are a foreigner I think its stupid for girls outside of Japan to think this way. It will only end up hurting them and making them seem desperate.
