Lolita Wish List

come to the rori side of the force
So I am finally getting around to posting my wishlist. I figured doing it this was was easier then the little notebook paper I currently have in my notebook.

Aqua Princess OP in black (ap)
Scent of Rapunzel JSK II in green
Unico in Bloomland Pearl JSK in black or navy
Lavander shoes
Ivory long-sleve blouse
Ivory short-sleeve blouse
Black wristcuffs

Black and white dosent always = ita

come to the rori side of the force
It seems to me that a lot of new lolitas (or at least 7 years ago when i first started out lol) tend to go for black and white, get horrible scarry black and white lace monsters, and suck.

I think ita is commonly associated with black and white because there are just soooo many black and white tacky/ita/ebay/lace monsters out there. But honestly the black and white colorway is so beautiful! But maybe its just because I've always been in love with what is now refered to as old-school lolita.

My tip for beginers who like me are inlove with the black and white color scheme, may I suggest secondhand older baby pieces? You can get them as cheap as $50 for a black cutsew dress with white lace details, or even one of their many empire waist jsks that they always seem to re-release
Baby is such a lovely brand and their plainer pieces seem to go really cheap second hand, and they are really cute! Paired with some cute cheap secret shop or bodyline shoes and some black, white, or even diamond patterned knee socks, otk socks, or tights leaves you with a stunning outfit for cheap! :] And dont forget a hair accessory which can also be found for cheap second hand, or at a claire's, or any offbrand lolita shop or mainstream store, or even hand made!

Heck you dont even have to be a noob! I've been into lolita for 7 years, getting close to 8, and I
still do this! Nothing wrong with budget lolita! :D

Anyways this silly/stupid rant begun to form in my head because I knoticed even though i have a few sweet prints here and there, almost everything is black, white, or both! 8D And as it is summer noob madness time I also see a lot of black and white outfits. Some good some bad...and im tired of people saying that black and white is ita. Not all black and wbite is created equaly! ;]

Actually, i think now im in the mood to update my wishlist with some moe good ole fashion old-school and old-school looking meta and baby! I really wish angelic pretty stuck to their roots more. Or at least released stuff that was similar to their old stuff! Ahhh...but i suppose it dosent hurt to dream~

Manners in Lolita

come to the rori side of the force
Ok so I've been thinking about how people act in lolita. Some girls seem to like to act as prim and proper while in lolita as possible, and othrs who seem to believe that while they are dressed all sweet and cutesy, the need to act as loudly and rudely as possible. Perhaps thats is just their honest personallity, or perhaps they are puting on a show to emulate what lolita means for them, who knows.

However I dont agree when girls freak out saying "How dare you not act like a proper lady while dressed in lolita!!!!!!!!!!111!1" Then again nor do i agree with the girls who say "Its just clothes! I do what I want!" For me I was always tought to be polite to strangers and polite to your elders. I was tought good table maners and how to act in public. I was tought there was a time and place for certain behavior. If someone comes up to me out of the blue and is rude to me wheather I am wearing lolita or not, I will try to be polite or ignore it. However if I just happen to have my buttons pushed, you bet your frilly ass I'll let them have it.

I wonder how others think on this subject. Excuse my random rant, I've just been thinking about this since this past Saturday while a girl was saying how it was funny that I was dressed really sweet and cute but I had no problem throwng around a swear word or two, but it made me awesome and a bad ass. Lol.

Also, this weekend was amazing! The mini meet was so much fun and I got to see a lot of people during the weekend which was a nice change. I posted to d_l today. I keep on meaning to post more, but i never remember to take pictures of my outfits! >_

come to the rori side of the force


So here is a picture of my babies! Ive just counted 8! Im so excited!

Also as of last thursday we have made it an official weekly thing to go down to the bar for kareoke! But it cracks me up because i always get crazy stares like they dont believe my age...probably because i wear lolita haha. And it always cracks me up because then i get the drunken older women telling me how cute i look and they love my style- in and out of lolita. :]

my new "Raver Colors" sewing project

come to the rori side of the force
Drawing again:
I am starting a new series of sewing projects that have been dubbed my Raver Colors series. I haven't really drawn anything seriously in a very long time after I had a very long period of depression. I love drawing so very much, and it is with this new sewing project that I am going to incorporate my drawing in it as well. For the rest of this series, I will be drawing a picture that features each piece that I make. I am really excited to start drawing again! ♥


the Raver Colors series:
I love lolita, but I also love to be an individual. I have always loved bright colors and want to incorporate that into my wardrobe. The goal of this series is to create an entire wardrobe with bright, vibrant colors that are not normally found in the lolita world. I want to be able to mix and match different colors other then just relying on prints which seem to be the main focus point in other lolita brands atm. My main focus is to achieve a look without all the crazy details, but simply with color alone, which imo allows for a lot more outfit combinations.


Pieces and Colors:
To complete this series, I need to make an entire wardrobe or complete outfit. I will be making at least one of the following: a skirt, jsk, op, bolero, hair accessory, blouse, and bag. The colors that I will be working with will be HOT PINK, ELECTRIC BLUE, YELLOW, PURPLE, GREEN and BRIGHT ORANGE.


WHAT WILL BE YOUR NEXT PROJECT?
I am only half way through this one, but I have all ready decided that my next projects will to do shiro and kuro lolita and aristocrat. Aristo needs moar love. ♥





All in all, this is a big challenge for me as a seamstress and an artist and I am meeting it head on! ♥♥
