I've never tried a lolita outfit before, and I like all sorts of fashion, so I thought that I would try making a one. I researched a bunch and the fact that I didn't find many qi-lolita outfits inspired me to make one. I'm working on developing a portfolio for theatre costume design and so this outfit is a perfect example of research on fashions and then on creating an outfit from a drawing.
Anyway, I have decided to post this design because I want some opinions. I am having some problems deciding on a color scheme, and I would like to have some general opinion about the overall loli-ness of my design. I want to make sure that I am as accurate as possible, and you guys know much more about it than I do. :) Thanks in advance.
...how often do you do so? I tend to wash blouses after about 3 wears, more (5ish) in the winter, and usually every 3 wears in the summer. That more depends on how sweaty I get.
JSKs and skirts I usually wash every 3-4 and sometimes if I don't have any time on my hands, 5 wears. Things that touch bare skin tend to get washed more often. Socks definitely get washed after every wear! Otherwise, YUCK!
So Lolitas- Next time you have a question, and you're embarrassed to post and ask- just get over it and ask. You know other people are probably wondering the same thing.
I'm a bit uncertain about this because I've never had a dress like this before...I bought a BTSSB dress recently and sent it to the cleaners. When it came back, the lace on the bodice and hems had gotten a bit crinkled. The lace is made of cotton, I believe, and is simple in design and mimics crochet. The dress itself is cream velvet.
Question 1: If I steam the lace, will the steam affect the pile on the velvet? (I know how susceptible velvet is to waterstains.)
Question 2: If it is okay to steam, how do I manage to hold the lace taut without burning myself with the steamer? (I haven't figured out as yet how to do this with ordinary dresses even!)
i'm helping out with a Lolita panel in just a few weeks. last time i did a similar panel, i had a LOT of the attendees freak out over "omg non japanese people wear these clothes" and "i don't think i can wear lolita because *insert flaw here*" and so on.
SO (getting to the point) for this panel, instead of taking pictures from the G&LB, i'd like to showcase pictures of EGL members sportin the frills. and i'd much rather ask than just gank images from anywhere :x
looking for people wearing the following styles: - gothic - sweet - classic - punk - aristocrat - boystyle
it is preferred that the images are good quality, display the outfit clearly, large (if possible), and with a simple background (if possible).
any contributions are much appreciated ♥ thank you!!
So, since everyone is asking questions about cleaning, I have a somewhat embarrassing question to ask. I have an issue with sweating a little more than most, but the worst part is sometimes with my regular clothes, especially lighter colored clothes, I get sweat stains even when I wash them very well and regularly. Does anyone have any tips on how to prevent or treat this? I really want to keep my brand clothes as nice as I can for as long as possible.
Has anyone bought a coat from Miwitch before? I know people have bought skirts, dresses etc. but I was wondering how well their coats are made and if they are warm (I get cold rather easily and I want to prepare before 30 degree weather sets in). Also I was wondering how their coats are compared to Fanplusfriend. I have searched the memories and did that ljseek thing, but nothing really came up. Thanks!
hey, I was in kinokuniya nyc a while back and I remember seeing a movie that I was really interested in but now I totally forgot the name. I beleive it was about a derelict boy who was filming a reality tv show? on the streets of tokyo with a mentally unbalanced friend of his who was into gothic lolita. This sound familur to anyone in anyway?
Ok i really don't mean to spam this community with socks, but I just came across these when treesdancealone said that Target had some brown knee-highs. But this pair are ADORABLE!!!! enough to make you impulsively bleed. heh. they kind of remind me of a pair of Angelic Pretty socks. but still. for $8 I dont think you can go wrong. ^____________^
