An Interesting Idea?

Hello Ladies,

 

I've been kicking this idea around for almost a year now, but I've decided that I would like to actually attempt to make it a reality.

 

I want to make a Lolita themed Tarot Deck. I am quite familiar with Tarot decks, (I own at least 6 of them,) and I do practice reading them. (I am really accurate too, if I may say so myself.) I am not trivializing the Tarot in attempting this. I believe that part of the wonder of the Tarot is the wonderful art that the cards have.

 

I think that parts of the Lolita aesthetic could fit this quite nicely. I even have some bits of it figured out already. The suits would each feature a different style of Loli (see below for details) and i have a bit of a story worked out for the Major Arcana. But what I am stuck with are details.

 

Mainly, I am looking for suggestions, comments, etc on what you think of this idea. I plan on eventually photographing and perhaps publishing this deck. Details on those shoots will be worked out later, for those of you in/around NY who might be interested.

 

Here is what I have so far:

 

Minor Arcana:

 

Pentacles (Earth)- Classic Loli. Aristo King and Queen. Pentacles would be represented by coins.

 

Chalices (Water)- Sailor Not sure how to do king/queen. Chalices represented by teacups.

 

Swords (Fire)- Pirate/ Gothic Loli. They're the only ones who I might see using swords.

 

Wands (Air)- Sweet. Hime queen. Parasols would replace wands.

 

Minor Arcana:

 

The fool would start out as an ita, and follow the various trials and tribulations in becoming a "true" Loli. More detail needs to be worked out, and I am open to suggestion.

 

Also, please do not steal my idea. Though I may not have anything concrete to show for it yet, a lot of work and thought has gone into this already. Thank you!

 

So, what do you think?
