Confessions of a Rufflebutt

The little place of lolita, steampunk, otome and otaku-ness of Yamneko, a self-proclaimed Ruffle-butt.

Barracuda - Super Preacher

No, it’s NOT Barracuda by Heat, or from The Barracudas. It’s a sampling remix called Barracuda from either a commercial or Summer Fun by the Barracudas.

so I put the patch on last night, and I swear with in an hour of wearing it my lower abdomen and back felt like they were beat up with golf clubs or something for the rest of the night and part of the next morning. Doesn’t bode well. Well see hopefully today if I start bleeding or not. If I do, off comes the patch and an appointment somewhere. I may trying call the doctor at the kaiser hospital and be like “hey, can you just renew my rx, and write as written, and send it here?” instead of finding a new doctor and making an appointment to get it.

The Anatomy of a Lolita
This took forever to finish because I was not happy with the diagram. I wanted to draw something that wasn’t too outdated (like many currently available online). I wanted a diagram that reflects a basic co-ordinate relevant to today’s standards.
If you are a new lolita, please use this as a check list to creating your your first outfit. Never EVER forget your petticoat!

Looking super cute for tea and pie with dkmissanya <3 I’d forgotten that riding a bike, in the summer, in lolita is not the best idea… Quite the workout!

Ugh trying to do something and I don’t even know if it’s right or going to work, and if it doesn’t how to go about making it right :\

Better to try and salvage something that is pretty wrong, or just start over?

sushicore:

ugh, life is so difficult sometimes

like, should I draw? should I try to figure out how to do the things I want to be able to do with my website? should I watch a movie? should I start watching a new anime series??? should I SLEEP????? yeah probably but I think we all know what’s not going to happen

There’s a bajillion things I want to do to, so instead of actually doing any of them, I browse tumblr or play Archeage XD

the catalog i was looking through specifically called these “gothic lolita” and i’m crying
like at least the “steampunk” patterns look sort of okay with the right styling and i mean. mainstream steampunk is literally BROWN AND GEARS, PERFECT. CORSET???/ UGLY LACE????MORE BROWN.
look at these,

As far as lolita Halloween costumes go I think these are actually not that bad. Not 100% accurate for sure, but then when are Halloween costumes a 100% accurate version of anything. And I’m no seamstress, but I feel like with some tweaking you might actually be able to make a decent lolita dress using these patterns?

You could probably save the one on the right by raising the bodice part to cover more of the chest and maybe add an extra row of ruffles to the bottom for length. Hell, switch the purple bows with pink ones and it’s already not half bad a dress. There’s potential in this pattern.
Not much can save the one on the left though. That one may just be a lost cause. Or it’s just the fabrics making me think that, I don’t know.

I can definitely see the gathered bust influence from Mary Magdalene’s Rote Rose OP, but it looks a little odd as an underdress? Definitely needs a nice cotton lace at the top, if you keep it like that. Personally, I’d like it better flat, but still with lace. And unless you’re really short, or plan on layering skirts, that underskirt could use another tier for length. 
And personally, I’m not terribly fond of the length of the bells of the princess sleeves. But more importantly, what even are the colors of the right look? 

As a seamstress I can confidently say both of these dresses can easily be saved and made more Lolita. They are patterns so if you buy non shiny well made fabric and lace, that alone will make them more high quality looking. Yeah add some height to the bust and length to the skirt. The models seem to be wearing A-line or square dance petticoats, so use a bell, or cup cake petti to get that classic lolita skirt shape. Remember the colors they used are just suggestions. The Gothic one can be made all black if you wanted.

I had picked up some bloody wall decals from Target as a surprise for Hubby (he didn’t really care about them :< ) So I stuck them up myself now :3 a bloody hand print in the kitchen, a bunch of blood splatters above the bed, hehe 

Let me tell you, I freaking love these stick-on wall decals. They do really help make a place not look so terrible and bland. I put some up on our closet in NJ and it made a big difference. So if you live in an apartment and dont want to deal with picture frames and shit, go get some. There’s all sorts you can get, ranging from 5 to 30 dollars. Some are just one large piece, others are smaller piece you get to stick wherever. 

They leave pretty much no residue, can be reused if you’re really careful about taking them down and moving them, and add something to that boring white wall

buttcape:

nissen Japan put up reservations for a few lolita-inspired sets. The neat thing is that they go up to size 10L. I’m sharing the ouji set because plus-sized ouji is difficult to find without having to get custom sizing. This set has 5 sizes, but the range is large! These measurements span all 5 of the sizes, so make sure to check the sizing chart before ordering.
For the blouse:
bust: 124-172 cm
shoulder width: 39-48 cm
length: 57-63 cm

For the pants:
waist: 85-125 + 20 cm for shirring
hip: 121-161 cm
length: 73-81 cm

They also have an awesome reference for viewing different clothing lengths on different heights. Right now they only have a chart for size 3L, but still a valuable resource!
