So how many people have complimented you? have you ever done a school report and gotten generally positive reviews? has anyone found out that you liked Lolita and turns out they do as well? ever saved someones life while wearing Lolita? etc... lets be positive and show everyone that Lolita isn't just wearing frilly clothes and people harassing you. there's nice people out there as well.
well, i don't have much or anything phenomenal but a few minor things.
More recently in my Design on the Computer class we have to put together an e-book featuring all the things we learned in that class, but we also have to make it a specific theme. i decided to make mine on Lolita, and my teacher saw all the dresses i look up for research (and maybe for fun >_> ) and she just ADORES it! every time she walks by and sees something "oh god that is gorgeous! you should go into fashion!" same with her assistant, so i think that's cool that my teacher seems pretty enthusiastic.
Another couple times i found out a couple of my classmates knew about Lolita fashion. one time in fashion class we all went to the library and i was bored so i was looking up Lolita fashion and the girl next to me was like "oh you like Lolita fashion? i love that too!" i was really surprised it was the first time i knew of anyone outside the internet even acknowledge Lolita let alone like it!.
another time too i was on break during political science and i went to the bathroom and the girl next to me (also in my class) asked if my skirt was Lolita? and i was like "uh yeah! kinda...it is my favorite fashion!" and she was like "yeah it looks like it, it suits you." so again i was surprised but also happy. its kind of nice to find out some random stranger or classmate at least knows about Lolita fashion.
Other then that I've gotten a few compliments on the things I've worn. Most of the time i wear probably more casual Lolita or Lolita-inspired. But I make all my clothing so when someone compliments me I'm happy because not only are they complimenting Lolita but also the hard work i put into it. i did make an actual Lolita dress and an underskirt to go with it, and I've worn that a few times and have gotten a lot of compliments. people are like "wow you made that!? O_O that's so good!"
so i think its nice when you do get that postive feedback or postive experience.
