Nice things to look at && a favour to ask :)  


















Oh and my favour to ask...I'm on a Fashion course at university and we're currently being asked to brainstorm ideas for making our own magazine, but I don't really have any friends with similar interests sadly...You guys all have similar interests to me so could you please give your opinions on whether you think these ideas would equal a great magazine? Thank youuu. Sorry if this post is against the ruless :(

-Seasonal fashion show favourites
-Model features and interviews focussing on childhood memories/books
-Celebrity style spotlights.
-Indie/Art film spotlights
-Film/Book influenced fashion editorials
-Artists/Illustrator/Photographer profiles
-Post Secret style pull out projects that require reader involvement like 'What did you dream?' or 'I love you more than ___'
-Quotes page featuring films, books, celebrities etc as suggested by readers or found by magazine.
-Cute, random features submitted by readers under whatever title the magazine gives such as photography projects like ‘Glasses on Cats’, ‘Knee High Socks’, ‘School’, ‘Autumn’, ‘Mornings’ etc etc
-Found things piece featuring objects, lists or photographs found by readers

So would you guys read such a magazine?

Also what what do you think of 'INTERLUDE' as a name? If you like it say, if you don't, any suggestions would be great :) And any ideas to add to the magazine would be awesome too :)


Thanks xxx

i believe there's already an interlude magazine
lolita_gracelolita_grace on March 4th, 2009 10:46 am (UTC)
That is so unamusing... :( I named it after that MCR song, my fave...I shall have to search for another name. Any ideas? Interlude seemed so perfect :(
Danwordissuperfly on March 4th, 2009 08:58 am (UTC)
all sounds good to me! Only suggestion is to keep indie/art film spotlights focused on the wardrobe/costume design.
lolita_gracelolita_grace on March 4th, 2009 10:47 am (UTC)
Yeah, I probably should or the magazine interests will spiral out of control. Indie/art films are one of my passions though. Thanks :)

the last girls calves are as big, if not bigger than both her stomach and thigh and it's freaking me the fuck out.

your magazine needs more foooooood. there are already dozens of small, hip, indie fashion and culture magazines and they all start to blend together to me, but I will NEVER get tired of a good article about baking.
melissa melodygogetcokes on March 4th, 2009 09:42 am (UTC)
ITS FREAKING ME OUT TOO ):
the attention just encourages her...quirkyslut on March 4th, 2009 09:54 am (UTC)
more food? a bit like the girl in the last picture?

but yes. i love articles about food!
nivekoutnivekout on March 4th, 2009 10:43 am (UTC)
agreed food/fashion/music!
lolita_gracelolita_grace on March 4th, 2009 10:48 am (UTC)
Hahaaaa I had never noticed. That is weirdddd.

Also yeah I agree. That's a great idea. I do need to include something to make it different...and baking is awesome.

Ew, it looks like they photoshopped her stomach to give her curves. It's really gross.
Jlicksips on March 4th, 2009 10:04 am (UTC)
Maybe something to do with music as well as food?

I made something along the lines of this (although not so fashion focused) last year for school, if you want to, check it out at http://issuu.com/candytrip/docs/champagne :)

Good luck with the project!
nivekoutnivekout on March 4th, 2009 10:47 am (UTC)
Well done dear!
Jlicksips on March 4th, 2009 10:47 am (UTC)
Oh, thank you! :)
lolita_gracelolita_grace on March 4th, 2009 10:48 am (UTC)
Wow yours is amazing. Mind if I reference you as an artist study? :)
Jlicksips on March 4th, 2009 10:49 am (UTC)
Thankyou! And sure thing, dear <3
Kin_n0sense on March 4th, 2009 11:04 am (UTC)
Yeah those things sound great.
Massive fashion collages would be great - think Polyvore on large scale!!

I think a title would come after the magazine came together - after you get a feel for the magazine as a whole.
lolita_gracelolita_grace on March 4th, 2009 11:57 am (UTC)
Sure, thanks. i do wanna include things like blogger spotlights, polyvore faves and flick of the month etc

Film/Book influenced fashion editorials

I would be interested in that one :)
Deiu: fashion. b/w. happy and naked with you.deiu_deiu on March 4th, 2009 07:37 pm (UTC)
Hell yeah !
Me too, definitely. :)
lolita_gracelolita_grace on March 4th, 2009 09:56 pm (UTC)
Yeah I love dressing like my fave characters some days ha. Currently chanelling Mr Mort Rainey from Secret Window. People call me trndy for wearing glasses and I just tell them I'll bury them in my secret garden ha
Thérèsediamondday on March 4th, 2009 07:34 pm (UTC)
where's the last picture from? because i'm pretty sure i've seen it before...
Deiu: God save the Queen.deiu_deiu on March 4th, 2009 07:51 pm (UTC)

Celebrity style spotlights.

Film/Book influenced fashion editorials.

Post Secret style pull out projects that require reader involvement like 'What did you dream?' or 'I love you more than ___'.

Quotes page featuring films, books, celebrities etc as suggested by readers or found by magazine.

Found things piece featuring objects, lists or photographs found by readers.


Personal favourites. Definitely first read articles number after number. :]
Great ideas, love. I wish you best of luck with the project ! =D
lolita_gracelolita_grace on March 4th, 2009 09:57 pm (UTC)
Thank you, thank youuu :)
trouble everydaymildsevens on March 4th, 2009 08:53 pm (UTC)
do something you've never, ever seen before. :) good luck with the mag!
lolita_gracelolita_grace on March 4th, 2009 09:58 pm (UTC)
Ah that is the challenge. Thank you a whole lot
bibliophilicnever_a_dream on March 4th, 2009 11:26 pm (UTC)
Can't focus... too busy being disgusted by the girl. Why is a ten year-old posing in her underwear? pedo-bait obviously.
ruthzerogravity on March 4th, 2009 11:33 pm (UTC)
what uni are you at??x
lolita_gracelolita_grace on March 4th, 2009 11:35 pm (UTC)
UCCA in Surrey, just outside London :)
jimy_arcadejimy_arcade on March 5th, 2009 02:50 am (UTC)
dude, that is so weird that you listen to lydia too, ive seen them like five times since i was in eigth grade. and i am also a huge fan of aubrey kawaski..and gg of course. the magaine sounds great, and maybe you could go for a two word title, like a descriptive word and then some cool object..like vanity fair lawl. but yeah make sure you do something you love, that way youll be sure to go above and beyond, whereas everyone is always trying to be different and thats kind of a problematic way to start off
lolita_gracelolita_grace on March 5th, 2009 01:25 pm (UTC)
Haha I've only been into them for a few months but yeah I love them. Always Move Fast is like the greatest song in the world. Man I'm so jealous that you've seen them live. Bet they were amazing :) Thanks for the ideas-am still racking my brain for a title ha- have been thinking maybe a quote from one of my fave writers but Chuck Palahnuik is far too hostile ha.

audrey kawasaki ilustrations are so awesome and classy, i love her work.

when i was trying to come up with business names i decided i really liked "ASHIKA" but it was too similar to another business so i couldnt register it.

but it would be a great name for a magazine :)

shika means "gentle deer" in japanese, i think :)
lolita_gracelolita_grace on March 5th, 2009 01:26 pm (UTC)
Oh cool. I did think of having a word in another language, like I wanted Road to Joy (after the Bright Eyes song) but in French...it just felt too wordy for a magazine name though :(
