Oh man I want to do a Doctor Who inspired lolita coord but I’m afraid people will see it as cosplay. I want something based around the look of one of the Doctor’s. I’m not sure what yet, but I don’t even have a job yet so it’s pointless to think about it right now… there are so many cosplays I want to do too…

Go for it! There’s lots of stuff over in my Doctor Who tag, if you’re needing some inspiration :D

I had thought about this a bit.. and really… how is a print of say… tardis or w/e at the bottom of it any different that cats, unicorns, and sweets? OH I LOVE THIS THINGS THEY ARE ON MY DRESS. So it’s a series that you like instead of a collection of random object(s). General ita/good coord theories apply still, but if you want to be Gimli if he was a lolita/wore dresses, or have the Serenity flying around the hem of your dress, it’s really no stranger than having a vanity table top there instead. I mean, it can be closer to cosplay than just wearing a t-shirt of the item, doing something like “if the Doctor was/wore lolita” because you’re trying to get into the characters head, but you enjoy said thing, and are just expressing you’re love for it. 

Some things work better than others, but in general, there’s no reason to accept the hate from others who go “LOLITA =/= COSPLAY”

How to make a cutsew.

246 followers! Thank you all so much and Wellcome to my humble blog!

This tutorial is a bit harder then the last one. A few more details and I feel that the tutorial Went a Little bit fuzzy, time to time.
But as I promised, here it is. If you have any questions about it, its alright to ask and I will do my very best to help you.
I’m sorry it took such time, but my free Photoshop passed the last date for Days ago and I had to wait until I could get the chance to get a membership at Adobe and then to subscribe to Photoshop. But it is done, and I hope you all wish alot more tutorials to complete your Lolita-look or even tutorials about other things. If there is anything you wish to know, just ask.
Thank you all so much, yet again. I appreciate each and everyone of you, my dear followers.

Love
V

Ps. Sorry for my bad English in the tutorial. I will try to be more clear next time. :)

I’ve been hoping for a translation of this! I’ve honestly never thought to use washing bags for anything other than socks with lace and bras.

THANK YOU

❥Witch Lolita is a fun Halloween spin on Gothic Lolita.
❥Clothing is still dark with colors like deep red, black or brown. Long sleeves are preferred but not mandatory.
❥Witch Lolita’s hair is worn down and long [wig or not] and is colored black, orange, red or white / grey.
❥In the photo above, you can see that the stockings worn are striped. These are preferred versus normal one-tone stockings. And with them, boots are typically worn but Mary Janes work as well.
❥Accessories are those that a witch might use — a broom, a pointed hat, a wand, or even wings. Brooms and pointy hats are the two most common and crucial parts to this style.
❥When using makeup, the look can either be simple and light with only a little eyeliner or the face can be made to look more pale and eyeliner / eye shadow can be used to add a smoky and mysterious look to the eyes. Lipstick is black as well.
❥Witch Lolitas nails are usually long and claw-like, painted black as well.

Tip for newbie lolitas: If a shop sells both cosplay and lolita, its almost certainly unreliable. The only notable exception that I can think of it Fan Plus Friend and they keep the lolita and the cosplay sections of their store completely separate. Anyone else, steer clear. Even worse are shops that sell wedding/prom dresses and lolita. Don’t touch those stores with a ten foot pole.  

Edit: I was just reminded that Bodyline has a cosplay section, too. Still, aside from those two, cosplay sites are usually bad news when it comes to lolita. 

This a photo of a Fan Plus Friend skirt, with a blouse THAT THEY NO LONGER HAVE AND I LUST FOR IT SO BADLY (i want the skirt too, but that blouse more) 
I need to figure out a way to make it! 
I should get down to the garmet district and buy a shit ass amount of lace, and a nice t-shirt/longsleeve shirt to alter

So I’ve been crocheting peter pan like collars. They’re 15$ plus shipping if you want one. Some examples here. You can request whatever colors you want. I’ll be putting more photos up later that also will have some headdress accessories, and the buttons I have so far. ( I need to get more, any recommendations on that?)

Making some peter pan collars. This is a light pink (god I need to figure out how to take good pictures) but I dont know what kind of button to put on it. Any suggestions?
