Thanks very much for taking the time to compile all this info! I have one book series that might possibly fit in the media section: Anne of Green Gables by L.M. Montgomery.

i think this is amazing! if i didn't have to run off to class i'd sit and read every little thing!

I adore your drawings. This handbook is really nicely laid out, and very helpful both for referring people new to the style, and to refresh one's memory on categories of lolita one doesn't often see.

Do you mind if I link to this from my personal (non loli-dedicated) website?

I really like what you have done here. However there is one thing i think you might want to change.

"Parasols ♥ can easily be distinguished as very lolita by their frills and old-fashioned appearance. They are not simply umbrellas with lace sewn on - they are far more delicate and far less practical. Children's umbrellas can sometimes work but look for one with a curved or otherwise elegant handle that extends rather than pops out (umbrellas that fold back in on themselves don't usually work). Asian style parasols are typically only suitable for waloli and should not be used with other styles."

In japan parasols are used by just about every woman. they are not impractical they help protect you from uv rays... That might be somthing you want to add, maybe not. as a vary light skined lolita I never leave home without one, even when I am not in lolita clothing.

I just meant they were less practical than umbrellas, which can protect you from both the rain and sun ^_^;;;

Dos & Don'ts
"Don't carry parasols inside or outside when it's *not* raining. They're not umbrellas and can't go in the rain, but it's still bad luck to have one open indoors."

This one doesn’t quite make sense. When can you carry one, then? I think *not* might be a typo.

"Don't wear socks over tights. It's just weird."

I don’t know; Mana wore these black knee socks with white lace over some black lace tights in the Gothic & Lolita Bible & I think it looks nice.

Lolita Styles: Punk Lolita
Hi there this is a really good guide but I think that something is missing in the Punk Lolita Section. Mainly that you didn't mention Panniers.

Punk lolita use panniers that are longer and are meant to be shown under the skirt. Also that punk lolita skirts are on the shorter side.

I know this may be a stupid question, and I read the whole handbook (I might have skipped over it sorry) but is a Pinafore dress any diffrent from a "normal" JSK?

And thanks for the nadbook it really helps alot!

I think "A Little Princess" by Frances Hodgson Burnett would count as a pretty lolita-ish book. n_n
