I was browsing the web for some good illustrations and I came across something called "Pitaten." The pictures are adorably lolita, but I was wondering about the plot. Is it any good? Is it surprising, like Petite Cossette or is it just filler plot? (Feel free to delete this if it's not relevant)
(as cross posted on The Blue Period Messageboards...)
I have been reading a lot of the information on the makeup tips, but I'm having a major issue - I'm black. And I just can seem to get either the Lolita look or the 1920's vamp look down. My skin tone is like a cross between a caramel color (though not that light) and chocolate (though not quite that dark). Many of the Lolita and Vamp style work better on Asian or Caucasian women, but don't look right on me.
Seriously seeking help!
In addition to sweet lolita, egl, and cosplay dresses I am also going to start selling decadently decorated Wa-loli Yukatas on my AZAC Ebay store for one of a kind items.
Any particular colors/styles/materials/prints you guys would like to see?
So far I am starting to make some cotton ones in a deep burgundy floral print and in 18th printed toile in cream/rose. The style I am currently making sort of resembles the ones on cosmates.com where they have room for a petticoat to be worn under them (with split sides seams).
I am also working on a pattern for a Yukata inspired loli dress.
edited to add: Also do any of you have suggestions for how to make the obi/bow combo?? When making one for myself I usually make the obi close with snaps or velcro and snap the bow on, just for looks. I do not want to make a full tied obi for these as they are meant to be fashion items. Anyone seen the cosmates/bodyline one up close? How does it's obi close and the bow attach or is it tied traditionally?
