A Lolita Entry

I am reserving this post as my own. Recently it came to my attention that I haven't been as active as Angelwich, and sadly that was not my intention when I agreed to co-running this blog with him. Now that I know, I will be all over it, like white on rice.

I thought my biggest worry is I'm not as funny as Angel, and I feel I don't have much to share. It's not entirely true, but it is how I feel. I will do my best to over come those feeling, and plow a head.

The last couple of weeks I've been getting more involved with a fashion, life style called Gothic Lolita. I'm sure a few of you might know what that means, but for those that don't, or think it might have a little something to do with a certain book, I will try my best to enlighten you. It's a sub-culture in Japanese, that is slowly, much quicker now then five years ago, coming to the states.It's all about looking doll-like, and heavily influenced by the Gothic period. I will link to more info at the bottom of the post. It's lots of lace, ruffles, and pretty things. All of which I've always been into. Well, more into my teenage/adult life, I was too much of a tomboy to love them when I was younger, and besides I was being forced into them by my mom, so for a few years I hated puffy dresses.

Many people have differing thoughts about what lolita is and what it means, I think something completely different I'm sure, but that's alright. I've only just gotten into meeting other lolis, so I'm still a little new, but so far.. I have mixed feelings about it all. It's half way plus size friendly, but it also doesn't seem friendly to off-brand, or people who might be a little laid back.That's not the right word.. Maybe it's more.. That they don't seem too friendly to people who have, and love, other interests. But I'm working on not caring what others think, and just caring that so far, I haven't met many bad girls.

I don't have any proper dresses, but I do have a few things around the house that I was able to throw together to make a nice cord. and it was very well received. I'm crafty, and I think with a little more time, and some extra money it's going to be just fine. I'm still standing on shaky legs though, so wish me luck. I'm sure in the future I'll be ranting on and on about loli, so I'm sorry in advance, but I'll try and make it quick and painless. 

And that is the end of the Lolita intro. 
In a few minutes I ill be updating today's events
Here are the links! 

This one has all the info on it you'll need, it's actually the best I've found in explaining what it is and everything else you might need as an outsider looking in. I doubt it has all the logo that lolis use. I'm still not sure I know all of it. I'm still an outsider myself. Actually now that I think about it.. I might blog later in the week about all the loli logo, and put it up, as well as links for clothes, and shoes, and things like that. Maybe I'll help a fellow Loli out.


  1. The link didn't work, so I Googled the term and came up with a plethora of info. I love the dresses - though someone my age would look funny in one. LOL

    And good for you! It's not important what other people think about you! It's what YOU think about you that is important.

  2. Thank you! I'm trying really hard to remember it's about it. Too many years of all the wrong voices in my ear made it hard to listen to myself, but I'm battling against them.

    And I'm sorry the link didn't work. I'll fix it now.

  3. Thanx for fixing the link! :0)
    And I can so relate to 'hearing the wrong voices' - been there!
