Lolita Blog Carnival: What does your family think about Lolita?

Todays topic of the Lolita Blog Carnival is "What does your family think about Lolita?"

Simple. They don't care.

My Mom gets angry at people, who stare too much.
My Dad never sees me in Lolita.
My boyfriends is happy as long as I am happy but he would prefer more boobies and jelly!

So what does your family think about you wearing Lolita? Leave me a comment!

Lolita Blog Carnival: Book Inspired Outfit

Good day and welcome to my 2nd entry for the Lolita Blog Carnival.

Todays topic is "Book Inspired Outfit". I was so excited about that when I first read it. Since I love to read, this should have been a walk in the park. Easy peasy!

Weeell... it wasn't.

The first thing that came to my mind was of course an "Alice in Wonderland" inspired outfit. I have done the Mad Hatter before (twice actually) but that's exactly why I didn't want to do it again. It's getting old. "Red Riding Hood" was another thing that I didn't want to do because it was too easy. There are a lot of Red Riding Hood themed dresses, pair it with a cape and your done. Everybody can do that and everybody is probably going to that. Not that there is anything wrong with it, I just wanted to challenge myself with this one.

So I kept on thinking. I thought about doing it based on "The Picture Of Dorian Gray" but I had no real idea about it, it just would have sound cool ^-^". Another thing I thought about was a complete coordinate without a petticoat. Why without a petticoat? Well, so I could call it "Flatland" themed. Yeah, I went there.

The last idea I had was by far the weirdest and creepiest. Also a little funny. But mostly weird. Anyhow. My idea was to borrow the dress "Sheep Garden" (Angelic Pretty) from a friend, taping all the little sheep mouths shut with black tape and call it "Silence Of The Lamb".

I am sick. But it's kind of hilarious, isn't it? ^-^ The only problem is, I don't know anybody who owns the dress. Boo Hoo...

If you want to hear the whole story and see the outfit I ultimately picked, check out my video:

Lolita Blog Carnival: How I got started in Lolita Fashion

HAHA! I finally did it! I am now part of the project "Lolita Blog Carnival". Oh, this will be so much fun ^-^YAY!!

Well, how you doin'?
Todays topic is "How I got started in Lolita Fashion".

*sigh* I hate to talk about it, you know? It's not a very nice story. It all started in 2007 when a very hurtful breakup from my best friend at the time made me want to hurt her just as bad as she hurt me. We have been very close for years and she was the one who introduced me to Lolita fashion. It was shortly after my 18th birthday when I voiced to her that I am suffering badly from abandonment issues and that I feel like I'm being left out. Unfortunately she made the grave mistake... and left me out. Not on purpose, I know that now but back then it broke my heart.

Out of basically pure hatred (I'm an Aries and a Snake, which is an unfortunate pairing because it makes me double headstrong and very shortsighted, once I enter rage-mode. Not that everybody is like that... but I am. I'm working on it though), I started to research Lolita Fashion. I wanted to become the bestest Lolita EVAR and just rub it in her face that I can do what she can't. Do you see why I don't like to tell this story? But it is what it is and I won't sugarcoat it.

After I signed up for Dunkelsüß in the summer of 2008, the German Lolita comm., I very quickly I realized that what I was wearing at the time, wasn't Lolita at all. NOT EVEN CLOSE! So I sewed my first JSK, white with a strawberry print and, TADA, my first Lolita outfit was created. It was pretty bad. Firstly because my sewing skills weren't that good yet, secondly because I had nothing but a JSK. No cute blouse, no socks, no shoes, no head bow. That outfit sucked! I'm not even sure I have a picture of it.

My second outfit was light blue and white, a babydoll OP. That one was SO MUCH WORSE!! Seriously... bad bad bad... Thinking back now, I am very glad that there are no pictures. The thought alone makes me cringe XD

Half a year later I'm in Paris, buying my first Baby, the stars shine bright velvet JSK and I was hooked! To this day I'm wearing it and it's very unlikely that I will ever part with it.
