Hello, and welcome to this new loli community~
Please take some time to read through the community rules and fill out the proper forms : )

“This community was founded on the idea of providing those that are interested with proper information about Lolita Fashion through the guidance and observation of a mentor.”


PLEASE NOTE that if you would like to part of the community, you must remember to send your application/questionnaire to lolimentorlj@yahoo.com! Thank you :)

Community Rules:
1. Posts are strictly for Mentor Profiles and Moderation Information. If you would like permission to post anything else, you will have to contact one of the Moderators from the list below first.
2. Intermittently the Moderators will check in on mentors and their new Lolitas to insure that the mentors are serving as beneficial guides and that new Lolitas are learning proper information. If either party chooses not to respond to these inquiries, they will lose posting access to the community.
3. At any time, if you feel that you as a mentor or new Lolita feel that there is a problem, please send a PM to one of the Moderators (listed below) and your issue will be handled as discreetly as can be.
4. Please keep images not under cut below 400 by 500 pixels please.
5. Every mentor gets one profile post.
6. Be respectful. Any flaming, drama mongering or general disheartening behavior will be punished.
7. Any offense against these rules and you will receive a warning. Two warnings and you will be banned from the community. Offenses that are especially heinous will result in autoban~ :D
8. If you wish to repeal your Mentorship, please first contact a Mod.
