Japanese Culture Project: Lolita Fashion

Hello lovelies, long time no LJ.

I wanted to share with you the culture research project I put together for my Japanese I class on Lolita, as well as an outfit snap from my presentation.

Naturally I had to come to class in full, proper Lolita to complete the experience for my classmates. I ended up going waaaay over the time limit, but it was totally worth it. I have included (a not-as-focused-as-I'd-like cell phone shot of) my coord, as well as links to my slideshow and essay from my Google drive. Meet-up group shots featured in the slideshow are from the DFW (Texas) Metroplex comm, 2009-2014. All pictures on the "Handmade" silde are of myself and my work.

Coordinate
JSK, Purse, Canotier- Angelic Pretty Sweet Strawberry Ribbon
Blouse- Anna House
Petti- KKJJ
Bloomers- Handmade by Yours Truly
Tights- C
apezio in ballet pink (these are dance tights)
Shoes- Off Brand from Payless
Jewelry- Off Brand misc.
Wig- [I can't remember]


The slideshow (note- the slideshow is mostly pictures, and very light on written information. Please see the essay for further detail)

The essay


Due to the loose criteria for sources with this project, I included only basic info. If you would like to be credited for an image, please let me know and I will be happy to add it.

Enjoy~


Mods- Feel free to add this post to the memories if you feel it is apropriate.
