“The most un-Lolita thing about me is…”

Let’s see… There are quite a few un-Lolita things about me. For instance, the way I dress outside of Lolita… When I’m not wearing Lolita (which right now is most of the time, unfortunately), I’m usually wearing jeans (either skinny jeans or flared jeans) and a t-shirt. Usually with a sweatshirt on top, and if it’s cold, my poofy raspberry-red winter jacket. I also do not wear makeup unless I’m cosplaying or dressing in Lolita. Sometimes I dress in Lolita and skip the makeup because I’m feeling lazy. (Like today… I’m wearing zero makeup and I’m in a simple Lolita coord.) For shoes, I’m wearing sport sneakers 90% of the time because I have a foot problem (really flat feet and weak joints due to a genetic syndrome I was born with, so I need to wear orthotics everyday and occasionally I need to wear ankle braces). I also don’t really style my hair every day. I hastily comb and brush it, and sometimes if I have a bit of time to spare, I’ll clip a little bow in it or tie it back in a ponytail, but I don’t spend too much time with my hair. Maybe that’s why I love wearing wigs for Lolita? I’m not too fond of my real hair. I sometimes have good hair days, but those are rare!

I guess another un-Lolita thing about me that my friend pointed out is how much I love horror movies and gory writing. But I feel like this might fit into the realm of Guro Lolita very nicely~! >w< So in conclusion, the most un-Lolita thing about me is how I dress outside of Lolita.

To be honest, there are some things very Lolita-esque about me too: my undying love for desserts and sweets, my love for bows (all kinds of bows!), and my conservative style of normal dress (no cleavage, I wear leggings/tights if I’m wearing a non-Lolita skirt/dress, I only wear tank tops for exercise sometimes, but I usually wear a t-shirt).

I really hope to wear Lolita more often. For now, I’ll continue my goal of dressing in Lolita at least once a week. Thank you for reading!

  1. Sometimes I dress in Lolita and skip the makeup because I’m feeling lazy.

    SECOND THIS XD I feel too lazy, and unexperienced. I know if I’d try a heavier makeup I’d look like a clown ;_______; so I just go for eyepencil.

    Seconding your post even for hairstyle XD wigs are my salvation, too!

    • Yeah… xD I’ve been dressing in Lolita without makeup most of the time. I only get makeup on if I’m helping a friend with a photoshoot or attending a big meet up. I feel lazy, and even though I’ve gained some experience with makeup from practice in the past year (mostly from using makeup for cosplay, actually), I am still trying to build my confidence. I find it a lot easier to throw on a wig instead of bothering with my hair! Although today I just left my hair on its own and added a little headband. (Very casual hairstyle because it was really hot today and I had to be outside all afternoon, so I didn’t want to wear a wig XD)
