welcome!

Hello everybody, and welcome to Spider Sugar!  My name is Gina, and I am a sweet lolita.  I've been dressing in lolita since the summer of 2008, so I've been around for a while.  However, I am also interested in other Japanese street fashions, such as mori girl and gyaru, and I also dress in good old fashioned western goth/punk.  However, my favourite style to dress in is definitely lolita, and it is what I feel most comfortable in most days.  My favourite brands are Angelic Pretty and Baby, The Stars Shine Bright, but I also adore Alice and the Pirates and Innocent World!  I live in the southern part of the United States (more specifically, Kentucky) which isn't exactly a mecca for alternative fashions, but I get by.  Besides liking fashion, I adore music; my favourite bands and musicians include My Chemical Romance, Arkona, Bright Eyes/Conor Oberst, Andrew Jackson Jihad, among many others.  I also love movies and television shows; my favourite shows include BBC's Sherlock, Arrested Development, The Office, and Modern Family, while my tastes in movies are constantly changing and I don't really have any specific favourites.  Art is another passion of mine and I hope to one day become a comic book author and illustrator.

I wanted to create a cute fashion blog so that I could have a little corner of the internet where I could express my thoughts about fashion trends, write about my life in my own personal fashion world, and have a reason to create cute graphics and take pretty photos.  I would ideally like this blog to become an image-heavy blog, hopefully using mostly my own photos and drawings, as well as other beautiful images that I find throughout my internet travels.  Hopefully, this blog will provide you with an interesting outlook on the growing world of cute fashions, as well as a place where you can find general tips, tutorials, and my personal take on certain trends.


To kickstart my blog, I have decided to host two giveaways!  One giveaway is being hosted on tumblr, and the other one can be found here.   I am giving away one fluffy star clip, one celestial glitter bottle necklace, and one paper star bracelet from my webstore je moi mien.  Here are the rules for the giveaway:
  • Write a comment with your first name, email address, and a link to your favourite blog!  This can be an actual blog, a tumblr, a livejournal, anything you wish!  An explanation of why this is your favourite blog would also be appreciated.
  • It would be wonderful if you would follow this blog, either with Google Reader or Blog Lovin' (both buttons can be found on the bottom of the page!)
  • I will ship worldwide!
  • You can enter both this giveaway and my tumblr giveaway, but you can only win one.
  • Giveaway ends March 1st, 2012.  This gives you a little under two weeks to get your entry in!
  • Winner will be chosen at random using a random generator.
And that's it!  Pretty easy, huh?  Here are the items up for grabs:





Thank you so much for reading!  I hope that you enjoy my blog, and I hope that I have finally found my niche in the blogging world.

  2. The prizes are adorable! My name is Emma and my email is pcarlsongrant@gmail.com. My favourite blog would have to be parfaitdoll.com--I love the author, Victoria Suzanne's sense of style and the blog is a mix of outfit posts, inspiration, how-to, and fashion.
