advice on dealing with a reluctant b.f.

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! =^) )
