Did anyone else save loli-secrets before the wayback machine killed half their lj pages? I only have about the first 20 posts.

I think we could start by asking the lj mods of egl, btb and daily-lolita if they could backup their communities. If I remember correctly lj has an archieval function for mods.

It IS awesome, gallery-dl is the best bulk download tool I ever used. They offer download options for a ton of sites and you can even ask them to add more. With it, you download via the command window (cmd). You just type in "gallery-dl *webpage*" and it downloads every gallery image of the link destination, sorted neatly in folders and subfolders. And yes, for photobucket everything is downloaded without the blurring and watermarks. But as of now, gallery-dl only supports the bulk download of albums. So if you want to download all images of the user's Bucket, you have to enter every image page manually. It still downloads without the watermarking shit though.
Honestly the only downside is that it's kind of a pain to set up as someone who has absolutely no knowledge of programming. It took me a few tries and googling.

Here's the page: https://github.com/mikf/gallery-dl

Here's the supported sites:

Yeah and we could include download links for scans and more, pages with descriptions for deleted webpages, comms or anything else from the past that is mostly forgotten - all with sources.

But on the other hand, this would be an excellent opportunity to lure people into a new lolita platforms for those who aren't satisfied or tired with the usal social media ones.

I was feeling pretty nostalgic and trying to find the original online guide I used when I first got into the fashion in 2008. While I was able to remember the name, unfortunately it looks like the site isn't the same anymore, and in fact, seems to not even be functioning (https://www.lolitafashion.org/).

However, I was able to find it on the Wayback Machine! I downloaded screen captures of the old website that I'd be happy to dump here, if anyone is interested. I just spent an hour going down memory lane exploring the old website. This was my first real introduction to Lolita before I discovered the EGL Community on livejournal. (https://web.archive.org/web/20080907183857/http://www.lolitafashion.org/index.php)

I miss how connected LJ made me feel to other Lolitas, not just around my country but around the world. I think I miss daily_lolita most of all, though. There were so many inspirational girls posting all the time. Casual outfits that weren't really up to "Lolita standards" or whatever, but were comfy and wearable; groundbreaking OTT sweet Lolitas wearing coveted prints and split-colored wigs; and really, just a bunch of cool girls wearing cool clothes who I felt like I could be friends with.

Maybe I'm remembering this all through rose-tinted glasses, but I do get a bit misty eyed when I think about what Lolita was to me and how I experienced it those first few years. I really hope we can try to conserve and archive some of this history.

ok, I lied, I cannot access her twitter. Still has a tumblr but her instagram is the same name, and her tumblr is PinkLikeMe. Really disappointed that the lolita comic was never restored because that was her best work and I'm not even being biased. Her recent illustrations is very Cal Arts (sorry if you're reading this - there are definitely ones I like). I guess she's into LARPing now.

Yeah, she never did more than one chapter of this. I'd just like this restored. It seems pretty clear according to her social media handles that she's distanced herself from lolita.

>Emily is a lone lolita in her town (and doesn't mind)
>has a circle of friends online to talk about lolita with and a supportive photographer bf
>one day decides to buy a new ott sweet set
>feels very self conscious wearing the set (upon realizing how crazy it looked - cake hat and all), but does so anyway during her photoshoot
>gets loads of positive comments on the comic's version of egl/daily_lolita
>Emily discovers that she was posted and got negative reactions from a wank community
(this was before cgl)
>goes into a depressive spiral; I think she stops wearing it for a while
>gets support from her bf and her circle of friends online (I think they reach out to her for being inactive?)
>decides to use this experience as a lesson to ignore the haters and resumes wearing lolita

I kind of wonder if the artist flounced for finding the lolita comm too intimidating or what.

These articles are so encouraging and inspiring.
Thank you anons. Sincerely!
I'm a lonelita and it's often taxing trying to discuss the core motivations and delightful obsessions of this fashion with folks who get so tripped up by sex.
I want to be beautiful and fantastical, not sexually desirable.

I really like this idea, I know I for one would be really excited to contribute and I'm sure lots other people would be too! There's so much old lolita content that has been effectively lost due to poor archiving and I think that's something that will only continue unless we have somewhere permanent and centralised to keep it.
