100 Lolita Questionnaire: 11 - 20

The next part of Lolita questions :D


11.What do you dislike in Lolita?
~ all the hateful Lolitas online and their online-communities... I can't understand why some girls are constantly discrimating other Lolitas just because they are not natural beauties, can't afford brand or don't wear perfect coordinations
~ that Lolita clothes are so expensive and that I have to buy everything online, so I have to spend a lot of money for an item of which I don't know if it fits me or look good in RL

12. What lolita magazines do you read?
I read the GLB, but since I can't speak japanese it's more looking at the pictures then reading xD There are also several magazine projects from western Lolitas, so when I have the chance to get my hands on their magazines, I read them too ^_^

13. Headdresses, bonnets or ribbons/headbows?
The truth is, I don't own anything of it! Yes I'm not kidding, I think I'm the only Lolita on earth who doesn't own a headbow... the problem is that I get very fast a headache from any kind of hair accesories, even from simple hairclips or headbands, so I was never willing to spend much money for it xD Of course I own some offbrand headbands and several rose clips which I usually put in my hair, but no real Lolita items ^^
Oh wait I own a headpiece, but I don't feel comfortable wearing it O_O

14. Do you wear bloomers?
It depends, when I'm wearing thights I don't always wear bloomers, because it can be uncomfortable around your waist if you are wearing 2 pairs of tights, 2 petticoats and even bloomers.... Sometimes I also wear shorts instead of bloomers, because they have pockets so I can hide my valuables in them ^^

15. Do you tie headdresses at the front or in the back?
I think it looks cute if you tie them in the front, it looks more like a doll ^^ But sometimes it looks stupid or is uncomfy, so it depends on the item.

16. Who is your favourite band/type of music?
I could write a looooong list about it xD Usually I hear Classic and Metal. I also hear a few japanese bands, but only because they are wearing Lolita or other fashions xD Of course I like the music of them, but I think I would never have started listen to them if they weren't wearing japanese fashion... they are: Nana Kitade, Kanon Wakeshima, Malice Mizer and Kyary Pamyu Pamyu.

17. What is your cellphone ringtone?
At the moment it's the ringtone of Barney Stinson :D

18. Do you attend concerts wearing Lolita clothes?
If it is an japanese artist, then yes, because the concerts are usually not crowed and I really enjoy wearing Lolita if the artist is also doing it. But I worn Lolita once to the concert of 'Subway to Sally' and it was a really bad idea! Metal concerts are not for pretty clothes xD

19. Do you go to work or class wearing Lolita clothes?
I wish I could, but I love Sweet Lolita so I buy only Sweet Lolita items, but I would feel very strange wearing a pink pony skirt to university, so I'm not doing it.

20. Wich ones are your favorites color in coordinates?
Pink! Also cream-white and mint but mostly pink!

Antique Market

Today I visited the Antique Market in Cologne with my friend Evangeline. It was so rainy outside and like always I overslept, so no outfit picture, sorry xD
http://www.coelln-konzept.de/markt/altstadt/altstadt_gr.jpg
Yeah the date is wrong...

I wanted to buy a tea set, because every princess needs a beautiful tea set and I didn't owned one :D


I also got another cup as a present! The seller said that the cup fits perfectly to our outfits (I wore my Angel Pony JSK and Evangeline her Toy Fantasy JSK) so she had to give it to us ^__^
The text says "For Birthday"


Also, last week I baked some cupakes with another friend. They turned out to be the most beautiful cupcakes I've ever baked xD

♥ Thank you for reading! ♥

I fell in love with the clothing because I always was a princess inside, you could see it at my room and my stuff, but not on my clothes and with Lolita I finally found the clothing I wanted forever!

I have won :D

I now I now, the title is a bit selfish but the truth is I had much luck the last 2 days :D
First, Ami and me won 1st place at the Dunkelsüß photo contest! The contest was about Easter pictures, but you couldn't win a real price... the three winning pictures are staying as the community headers for 1 week. In my eyes they could stay longer, not because I want to see myself all the time, but because they are more colorful and not so boring black-grey-brown-ish like the old header xD


The second thing is, that I won a ticket for the AP Tea Party in Paris!!! I am sooo happy, because I wanted to go to Paris for the last 2 years, but I didn't had the chance until now, and that I won a ticket for the Party makes the trip even more special for me ♥
I'm hoping that also Maki and Asuka join the Tea Party, because the AP Shop in Paris didn't anounced them yet...

Also good news, Kyary Pamyu Pamyu is coming to the Japan Expo in Paris! I love her so much, she has a great style and sooo cute songs xD I don't understand most of the song texts because they are in japanese, but the english words are always the names of candy xD She will be singing and holding a fashion show!


I also need a giant tulle headbow like her and I'm thinking about wearing something Fairy Kei-ish to Japan Expo ^_^

The different styles of Sweet - OTT LOLITA

I want to start a new series: "The different styles of Sweet". For many people, Sweet Lolita is just every outfit with pastel colors, mainly pink, and cute accesoires. But as a big Sweet Lolita fan myself, I know that this style has many sub-styles to offer. Like Classic Lolita is influenced by Mori Girl or Dolly Kei, so is Sweet Lolita also influenced by other fashion styles. And in opposite to Classic Lolita, the Sweet style has it's own names for each direction ^_^

Of course you don't have to draw a line between the sub-styles, sometimes you even can't, but some people do and I want to help you to understand the differences. For me, it helps to create a good coordinated outfit if I can think of a particular sub-style while searching for accesoires, socks and so on.

My first style will be OTT-Lolita, the most used word to discribe an outfit which is not 'normal' Sweet Lolita.


OTT LOLITA

OTT Lolita is not based on other japanese fashion styles. Of course they use some elements from other fashions, but in general it's just a crazier version of Sweet Lolita.

Hair:
The hair is usually voluminous and/or in unusual colors. Curly fluffy pigtails with long hair is the most favourite hair style. The hair color can be everything, from blond and black to pastel colors to vibrant blue. Also mulitcolored hair is common. It's important that the hair color matches the outfit. To achieve this look, 99% of the OTT Lolitas wear wigs or half wigs.

Accessoires:
Even if OTT means 'over the top' aka 'too much', OTT Lolitas don't overfill their outfits with accesoires like you do in Decora Fashion. OTT Lolitas just use many accesoires to create a very detailed outfit.

OTT Lolitas love if everything matches together, that means if you are wearing a dress with pony print, you most likely also wear a pony bag, pony necklace, pony socks...It cost a lot of time to collect all the matching accessoires, so it's like the cream of the top if you can wear them alltogether.

Prints:
Print dresses are most used, because they give the outfit easily this busy, detailed 'over the top'-look. Also, the outfits are usually build around their print. But it is also possible to wear one-colored dresses and create the OTT-look through your hairstyle and accesoires.

Other Typical Elements:
These elements are not used by everyone and all at one time, but that are elements which are not used often in the other Lolita styles except Sweet Lolita.
~ leg warmers
~ two different colored shoes
~ shaped bags like strawberries, tea cups, shooting stars
~ plush bags like ponies, bears, bunnys
~ bunny ears, bear ears
~ hats with special shapes, like fur hats with bunny or bear ears, Hello Kitty hats, cake mini-hats etc.

Japan-Day

On Saturday was the Japan-Day in Düsseldorf! I was soo excited and it was a wonderful day! We were a group of more or less 10 people (well, we often split into smaller groups and met again, because on J-Day, over 1 million visitors came to the city, and you want to meet all your friends, so it is hard to stay in a large group xD)
On J-Day, you can spend the whole day just going from one end of the festival to the other. Usually you just need 30min for this distance but on J-Day, you need hours, because every 2 seconds someone wants to fotograph you, or you see a friend and want to say Hello xD But I see J-Day as a big oppurtunity to show the 'normal' people how we look and how we enjoy our love for japanese fashion, culture and so on, so of course I'm wearing my finest clothes for this day and I'm happy about every fotographer :D

I wore my favourite dress! I think it doesn't fit me in the best way, because it is totally short, has fullshirring and sits way over my natural waist, but I love the color and pattern, which fit good to my hair and skin color ^-^

Funny was, that I often oversleep (like you can read in my Dokomi report xD), but on this day I woke up so early that I also took the train 1 hour earlier then I wanted with my friends xD After one stop I recognized that I was too early, so I got off the train and ran home to pick up my umbrella, which I forgot the first time ^^'
And during the day, 2 girls came to our group and asked us, if our dresses were from Angelic Pretty! They really didn't look like they would wear such clothes, but they told us that they saw the AP shop in San Francisco and now they want to buy a dress too, but they couldn't find a shop in Germany (of course xD).
