We are called rochesterlolita since majority of the active members are in Rochester. That's also where most of the meetups take place but it is open to all upstaters. We have some great lolitas that travel across state from places like Steuben county, Syracuse and Buffalo to join in on the fun. We try to have meetups as regularly as possible and aren't limited to having them in just Rochester. Beyond meetups we have Group Orders and some wonderfully crafty people that make sweets jewelry and the like. With that said, I'd like to invite any upstate lolitas to join the group and hopefully come to our next meetup! NYC lolitas are welcome to join/watch too! Ontario Lolitas are welcome- heck if you think you can make it to meetups it doesn't matter where you're from. We hope to one day have a statewide meetup!
-Now for some posting guidelines- First and foremost, keep posts on topic. No spamming, mods reserve the right to delete posts we deem inappropriate. We'd like to keep the drama to a minimum so if you have any issues please feel free to contact a mod.
Some types of posts we would like to see: ~Daily outfit posts- rochester's own daily lolita can also be good for outfit advice. Tag like you would on daily_lolita by using the style and the username. ~Local finds- It's a lot better knowing that the local H&M has before you drive out there based on an EGL post. ~Group orders and sales posts- Give the local girls first dibs and an opportunity to not have to pay for shipping. Things don't have to be lolita specific but please use your best judgment or just ask a mod. ~Introduction posts- we really haven't had any of these but they are great if you are new to the community.
Since meetup posts are our main posts we thought it would be nice to keep them organized. Please tag them as meetup with the date. ~Spontaneous meetups (ones that don't take a load of planning) need only a main post and one reminder post. ~Planned meetups should have multiple posts as needed just no repeat posts (exact same post as before just posted again). If you think your first post didn't get any love because it got knocked of everyone's friends page then just delete the old post and make the new one. We just don't want the front page to be all the same post. ~Also try to keep large images or image heavy posts behind a cut
Now some other great LJ communities: egl aka the mothership nylolitas the community for the whole state lolita_handbook the canon for lolita fashion. Don't know what lolita is? well this is where to start.
