Maxipad Appreciation Post

Since it's old school month, why not discuss the maxipad? It's arguably the second most iconic relic of old-school lolita, right next to the black-and-white dresses, and if the name doesn't turn people off, the connotations with lace disasters and "lolita cosplay" usually do. But some of us still appreciate the maxipad headdress. Or even if you hate it, feel free to chime in! Everything maxipad!

Personally, my love for maxipad headdresses has grown stronger in past couple of years. I don't think I looked at them twice when I first found out about lolita, but now I find them super charming! However, it's sometimes hard to work them into my decidedly more modern wardrobe, so I only own a couple. I have the Kidsyoyo Violin Rose headdress, which almost isn't a maxipad at all. And I have a black one from fanplusfriend. I found the black one difficult to wear at first because it was really overwhelming with my regular hairstyle, but when I tried it on with a wig it looked great! I want to wear it all the time now.



Do you have/wear maxipad headdresses? Seen any recently that you like? Made one? Pictures of you coording one? Please share!
