Lolita Challenge day 3- 10 things I hate about lolita

Day 3 – 10 things you hate about lolita.

1- The price.  There are chepear ways to do things of course, but it’s an expensive hobby overral.

2- The fact I cannot buy things from local stores and the postal service. I just hate to wait for weeks or even months to get my hands on something I bought. The postal service in my country is just…. -_- One of the worst ones in the whole world.

3-Gothic, wa, qi, too much black…. I dont’ like it and I find the Mana-sama style gothic really ugly. Also, qi and wa are also ugly styles, even when done right, I find them ugly. Blah. And black is the color I hate most in lolita (but I have one black skirt lol XD And I like that skirt.)

4-Lack of comfort. It’s not comfortable to sit on your petticoat, walk on some lolita shoes (most of them hurt our feet), etc. When I sit in lolita I always think “Oh no, sitting will destroy my petticoat…” And oing to the bathroom with bloomers, petticoats, lots lots of rings can be a true nightmare.

5-False eyelashes. I mean, I LOVE them! They’re so pretty! But I DONT KNOW HOW TO USE AND APPLY THEM. I SUCK ON DOING IT. I JUST CANT DO IT RIGHT. Everytime I see an amazing make up using false eyelashes…I jelly.

6-Multicolored wigs. I don’t like them, for me they’re ugly.

7-Bad quality. Fabrics, laces, wigs, anything that has a bad quality ruins an outfit.

8-Itas. I mean, I love to have new people learning about lolita, but I hate those itas who dress like Misa from Death Note and claim they are in the most cute gothic lolita outfit and they are right, we are wrong.

9-Brand sizing. I wish brands could make ALL THEIR DRESSES IN DIFFERENT SIZES. I can say I fit any brand. From Mary d Magdalene to Angelic Pretty. But while is hard for me to breathe deep in a 64cm waisted skirt, Metamorphose’s dresses are way too big on me. Shame on you, brands.

10-The lacking of respect of the humanity.People cannot see something different on the street. They will mock you, kill you with they’re glances, say mean things…Of course there are nice people, but they are not the majority. But what I always do is to behave like a princess: stay proud, strong and be happy with the things I like!

Lolita Challange ~Day 1 – 10 things about your lolita bubble

August 8, 2011

1- My first steps ~ I liked lolita fashion from the very first time I found out about it. I really don’t remember when or how it was- maybe in 2005? But at that time I didn’t even feel like wearing it. When I looked at a picture of a dress, I just used to think, “Oh, cute!”. But in 2010 I had a chance to start purchasing from internet. Japanese stores started shipping overseas. People learned more about the fashion and started to dress better. Then I fell in love again and decided to be part of the wonderful world of this beautiful fashion :3

2- Support ~ I feel really sorry and bad when I read about a lolita who has trouble with her family/friends/boyfriend because of the fashion. But fortunately, I don’t have that problem. I get support from everyone. My dad helps me to buy, my mom helps me to choose/make new pieces, my friends all like and and my boyfriend don’t finds it weird or shameful. Yes! ❤

3-Favorites~ My favorites styles are sweet, sweet-oldshool, classical and classical-sweet. I also like country and sailor.♥
And I think they match me perfectly!

4-Changes ~ Lolita changed me. A lot. But for good. Before lolita, I used to hate shopping and dressing up. But now I love it. I also started finding myself prettier. I even started to like looking mainstream fashion shops, wondering if the things are ‘loliable’. I also became a lot more feminine. My self esteem rose up!<img class=”alignright” title=”Innocent World’s Little Lady cat print!

5-Cats! ~ I love animals. All of them. I’m even vegetarian for them. But my favorites are cats. I love cat prints! I plan on making a biiiig wardrobe of cat prints!

6-Determination ~ I’m a very strong person. I’m not ashamed of using lolita outside. I admit: I don’t like going out alone when dressing in lolita. But not for shame. But because I’m afraid someone could start mocking me… And I have a big fear of people, specially men I don’t know.

7-Naked skin ~ I don’t have anything against it. I like ankle socks. I like jumperskirts without blouses or boleros. I like sandals without socks. Actually, I find sandals with socks really ugly…

8-Fun ~ I have fun with lolita. I just loving going to meet-ups. It’s so much fun speaking with other people who have the same tastes! It makes me happy. I also get happy when a package arrives! It’s so…So magical to open the cardboard boxes and see what you bought! Really different from the pictures…Prettier! Touch it, feel the fabric, see the details…It’s just magical and so much fun.

9-Lifestyle ~ I wish I was a lifestyle lolita. I plan on decorating my room when I move with a lolita-theme. I bake, I cook, I sing, I take care of my pets, I eat desserts, I write letters, I draw, but even so…I still don’t think I’m a lifestyle lolita. I wish I had a garden, or a younger niece, little sister, little cousin, so we could make tea parties with stuffed animals…But yeah, I’m alone, so I don’t feel like being into the lifestyle. Not alone, its just boring…

10- I’m afraid. ~ I’m afraid of having to leave lolita someday. Or becoming ridiculous at it. Or stop loving it. It made my life so brigther, prettier, sweeter…I don’t want the fairytale to end. I’m afraid that when I’m finally independent enough to buy anything I want…I’ll be too old. I hope I keep on looking like 14 forever…
