I had always longed to be a lolita since I first saw it years ago, and now my mom is finally letting me go after that dream. I have some dresses I am waiting on which I'm super pumped to get! I was planning on wearing one for Christmas for the first time around my family, but then I began thinking of how my family would react. They are the kind who would look down on someone who dyes their hair pink, or dresses outside of what people would consider "normal." Before I had worn some things that were not "normal", and had gotten a comment from my aunt saying I looked kind of like a whore. When I took it off everyone seemed to talk to me more. Some even said "Finally, there's our girl!!" > < I'm not necissarily scared of other people laughing at me for what I love, but when it comes to my family I'm terrified of being judged. I really don't want them to laugh at me in a mean way or look down on me, which I feel some would do, but I don't want to hide the things I love from them. I don't know if I should dress in lolita because that's what I love, or if I should keep it away from them.
I was wondering if someone could give me some advice as to what I should do.
