I'm making an outfit for Dragon*Con that involves a new corset that I've ordered. The corset will be silver/gray fabric with a black lace overlay. The lace isn't a typical flowery one, but it has this loopy cross design. It's hard to explain, but it's very nice.
So, I was wondering, does anybody have any pictures of any lolita dresses that involve lace overlays? I know that Meta has done some things with lace dresses, but I'm wondering if anyone has any ideas for what I can do. If it was just making a dress with a lace overlay, that would be easy enough to come up with a good idea. However, it's hard enough to make a corset look appropriate for lolita, let alone with lace. ^^;;
One of my friends went to Scarborough (uk) last week, & says there's a gothic lolita shop there.
Now he knows vaguely about the fashion through me. & he didn't go in because it was sunday. so it was shut.
Is he right? Whats it like?
Was just wondering and didn't wanna bust down your community's door and bug you guys:
Do you all do anything for DragonCon? I'm coming down for the convention. ^_^
Good evening ( well evening for me ^_^) Egl.
I am more on the classic side of Lolita, and have always wanted to pair plaid..yes plaid tights with an ensemble, however I have not been able harldly squat in my search. Does anyone know where I could find some plaid tights?
Hi all--I've been invited to a friend's University Prom/end of year Ball and the dress code is 'formal'.
My question is--could one of my jsk's/other lolita outfit be considered formal enough by a Ball's standards?
And by jsk/other loli outfit I mean the full works....wig, best dress, etc etc.
Also, does anyone have any experience in going to an occasion such as the one I've mentioned in loli?
so, i made my mega-public loli debut at comic-con this past weekend.
i wore all handmade clothing -- a wa loli-style, strawberry-patterned kimono and skirt, an all-black ensemble and a sweet lolita jsk made of beautiful green-and-floral cotton cloth. in my opinion, it all turned out rather well for a first try.
here's the thing: i'm not so sure my boyfriend liked it. i think it was a little poofier, frillier and girlier than he expected. one day -- and he was being a bit grumpy anyway -- he complained that i looked like a second-grader! i thought i looked muy kawai, and the many people who took my picture at comic-con must have thought so too!
so i'm trying to find something a little less ... young ... for the bf's sake. can anyone recommend a lolita style that's a little more mature? or at least, easier to swallow for a significant other who is brand-new to the scene?
i'm thinking EGL (elegant gothic lolita), or conversely, casual lolita. any recommendations?
(the boyfriend might also be open to steampunk-influenced lolita, since that's a school of design that interests him too. i'm the one who obsesses over pictures of bustle skirts and ruffles, not him! =^) )
