Battle Hymn of the Lolita 
29th-Apr-2014 11:01 am
Hey guys, I have a project floating around in my brain that may or may not come to exist. But I need some thoughts from you all.
What song would you call the Battle Hymn of the Lolita?
I'm talking about that song that makes you feel like you can destroy any creep who tells you it isn't Halloween with a swish of your petticoat, climb Everest without getting a single stain on your new jsk, and generally disassemble the patriarchy with a single bat of a perfectly-placed falsie.

I'm not sure it's really what you mean, I don't think I have something specific to when I wear loli since I keep being the same person. But to try to answer your quesiton, the song "Hey my friend" from Kamikaze Girls still makes me happy everytime I listen to it.
I think it's partly because I considered it a bit as "my own secret song" when I didn't dare telling anybody I liked Lolita, and also because it sounds quite happy.

When it's raining, when I feel guilty from having eaten too much, when I'm upset at my sewing machine or my computer, listening to this always makes me go better. :)

I'm not sure this really applies, but whenever I feel upset, listening to "My Dear" by L'arc~en~Ciel cheers me up and their "My Heart Draws a Dream" is the song I listen to when I need a break from the world and to focus on myself and my aspirations. Finally "Black Sheep" by Gin Wigmore gives me a little boost of confidence.

I've got a bunch of different songs that give me confidence, but what I'd consider my actual Lolita "Battle Hymn"(!) would be this one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZwTZTmw_vgU
Aristocrat's Symphony by Versailles! It makes me feel like I could (and should!) ride into battle in my frills, haha!

Ah Versailles XD similar to estellewhite's, I really liked After Cloudia for a while, and will still occasionally jam to it when I feel like it.
Traditionally, though, I get ready listening to Girls Dead Monster. I'm especially into this guitar cover of Little Braver right now.

Kaya and Schwarz Stein music usually, even if it's more fitting into Gothic Lolita aestetic but my fav style is Sweet! And also some not well known "jpop" songs called Carmilla and Glass no Step by Gothika :3. I don't really have a specific hymn but these artists make me think of lolita fashion in some way.

..I listen to Nicki Minaj when I'm getting dressed up.
Not suitable at all, but listening to her while I'm getting dressed up makes me feel untouchable.

I listen to 'Roar' by Katy Perry. I'm not a fan of her music, but the song is so inspiring and it makes me feel like I can take on the whole world while putting on my brand and war paint.

'Something in the Water' by Brooke Fraiser https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oSPK_5tkRN4 is my forever and always lolita theme. Listening to it especially the verses always makes me feel like I could skip through Mordor.
but for a battle theme Imma go with 'Black Sheep' by Gin Wigmore https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u7aNKstBCM4
