[Photoshoot] Royal Lolita

363Z4020

This was my first fashion shoot with Samuel Lim, and it was a pleasure working with him! We wanted to do a royal-themed fashion shoot with studio lighting. I also wanted to try something new with makeup: adding gems to my face! I rarely stick things to my face, so I was a bit nervous about this. Luckily, nothing fell off my face during the shoot!

I really love the concept photos like the one above. Who needs my face when you can stare at the gorgeous details on this Voodooodolly crown, Innocent World JSK, and BTSSB princess-sleeved blouse?! I’d rather look at these pretty pieces than my face any day.

I truly love the red lighting in the background…! Especially since the wine red edges match the color of the JSK… (And red is my favorite color, so any shade of red delights me!) What do you think of the background color in these photos?

Samuel asked me to bring some props too, so I brought this Angelic Pretty Mook with me as a prop. I love looking at the photos inside the Mook! I don’t own anything displayed in this catalog, but maybe someday… Do you have any favorite Mooks? (In case you don’t know what a Mook is: it’s a cross between a magazine and book! Brand Mooks promote a brand’s products, and usually show off the latest releases and styles from that particular brand.)

LBC: Winter Lolita Look

lbc

This week’s theme is a Winter Lolita Look! I wish I had more time to wear lolita, but I’ve been super busy with academics. I will share my look for my very first International Lolita Day Meetup! The winter ILD meetup in Boston was a lot of fun. ^_^ I went with a friend from my local community who was kind enough to give me a ride there.

ILDwinter

It was super cold, but I was wearing an underskirt, my favorite multi-layered petticoat, tights, knee socks, and fleece bloomers. While traveling, I also wore my poofy (non-lolita, and I think it’s ugly, but it is super warm and New England-friendly) jacket and leg warmers. I also wore my winter boots because the weather was terrible, and I changed into my nice shoes when we arrived in Boston.

Here is the coordinate rundown:

[Crown] Crowns of the Kingdom

[Wig and Lashes] Gothic Lolita Wigs / Dolluxe

[Blouse] Dear Celine

[JSK] Innocent World

[Necklace] Vintage

[Gloves] Vintage (from a flea market in Paris! :D)

[Socks] Offbrand

[Shoes] Offbrand

Shout-out to my friend Lisa who made the fleece bloomers for me as a lovely present last year! ❤

For my winter looks, I love wearing wigs because they actually do keep my head very warm. It’s like wearing a winter hat, but better! I also love layering up things, so it’s great that I can wear warm tights under my socks.

As for winter lolita looks in the future, I would love to wear a warm and fancy fur cape! And maybe a winter hat that works for lolita? I did do this look with a warm winter hat before:

I love this winter hat! It’s a vintage item I found in a thrift shop. I pinned a matching navy flower to it! (And I’m wearing a wig under the hat for extra warmth. That’s the same exact wig I wore for ILD, in fact… What a coincidence!)

How do you stay warm in the winter while wearing lolita? Are there any cute accessories you love to wear with your winter coordinates?

Full-out coordinates (So far, from 2013)

Warning: Photo-heavy post ahead!

If you would like to see some of my Casual Lolita coordinates, click here.

I really enjoy planning out Lolita coordinates. Sometimes, I find it difficult, but nevertheless, I always find it fun! I love figuring out which clothing articles to put together, and which accessories to add to the outfit. And then wearing the coordinate is a great feeling too! I used to feel awkward wearing Lolita in public, but now, I have built up more confidence. I can wear casual lolita in public by myself, and I’m fine with wearing over-the-top lolita as long as I have at least one friend with me. Maybe eventually, I’ll build up my confidence even more so I can wear over-the-top lolita on my own in public.

Here are some of my favorite full-out coordinates from this year, so far:

DSCN2419

This is the outfit I wore when I twinned with my friend Megan! ❤ I miss her already. Hopefully we will be able to hang out in Lolita again this coming autumn! (And perhaps we can try to twin again…?) Megan and I also love dancing… and we were thinking of maybe doing Kpop dance covers… in Lolita. (Not sure when that will happen… but maybe sometime in the future if we have time to learn dances and such!)

DSCN2243

Here’s the Sweet Lolita coordinate I wore to a local mall meet-up, featuring a BTSSB cutsew and an AATP skirt. I love the pastel pink and white in this coord! Unfortunately, not all of the whites match… (I find whites really difficult to coordinate… If anyone has advice, please let me know. Thank you in advance!)

DSCN2322DSCN2321

This was my first attempt at a Country Lolita coordinate. I really love the red and white gingham print, and I’m really happy that everything matched up well. The cutsew is from Dear Celine (a Taobao brand), and the skirt is from Angelic Pretty (I snatched it off the comm sales a while ago). I really love the bonnet look, and I hope I pulled it off! There’s one thing that annoys me though… I have red and white wrist cuffs, but I completely forgot about them. They would have matched this coord so well! Next time, I’ll try to remember to wear the wrist cuffs. I can probably work the wrist cuffs into another coordinate as well…

DSCN2124

Above, you can see my friend Megan on the left! We are not twinning in this photo, but we were hanging out in Sweet Lolita coordinates together. I’m wearing a BTSSB babydoll JSK and headbow that I got from the comm sales (I believe the set was originall a lucky pack?). Fun fact: the knee-high socks I am wearing are socks that I’ve had since 5th grade. I’m so glad I’m a pack rat and never gave them away… xD I am not sure how well the blue cardigan matches with my coordinate, but it was chilly outside and I did not want to take off the cardigan. (And the cardigan matched better than my sweatshirts or winter jacket… xD)

The following two coords are quite different, but I used the same wig for both. I really love how this wig looks, and I love how both coords turned out.

My favorite JSK: the Bertille Rose from Innocent World ❤

024

This coat is really warm and I love the detachable fur collar! Maybe I can use the collar with another coat or jacket? Or maybe even a blouse?

In case anybody is curious, the wig I am wearing is the Empress Collection wig in Chocolate Brown from Gothic Lolita Wigs.

I really love the following coord… and I think it was the first coord I put together that I was proud of. I wore this outfit to my very-first Lolita meet-up! ❤

I still love that bolero too… I found it at a thrift store at such a cheap price! The only annoying thing about it is… how it sheds off feathers. The fluff at the collar and the sleeves are feathers that just love flying everywhere. Those brown platform shoes broke (the soles came off)… but they are fixed now. I’m a bit scared to wear them again though! If I wear them again, I’ll probably only wear them for short periods of time, or bring spare shoes with me just in case something happens to them again.

And here is one of the Customer Coordinate showcases for Gothic Lolita Wigs that I was featured in:

I can’t believe I actually got accepted to the showcase again. >w< The above coordinate was what I wore to the Conbust Lolita Fashion 101 panel. I love the Alice in Wonderland theme of this Bodyline JSK!

I really hope I have made some progress as a Lolita since last year. ❤ I would love to receive feedback and advice from other Lolitas, so please don’t be shy! I appreciate constructive criticism.

Little Post about a Great Meet-up (and my favorite JSK!)

On Sunday, April 14, I attended a meet-up in Boston that was co-hosted by two amazing Lolitas, Scarlet and Ashley. 🙂 It was a fun and casual Newbury Street Stroll, and all the attendees were dressed up in pretty frills! We had a great mix of coordinates. We ate a late lunch at a sushi restaurant, walked along Newbury Street, drank delicious hot chocolate (and ate some yummy chocolate too), did some shopping, and took photos! 

I attempted to dress up in Hime-Lolita style. ^-^ This is the coordinate that I wore to the meet-up:

Image

It features an Innocent World dress (the only brand item that I’ve purchased directly from the brand website) – the Bertille Rose JSK in the Bordeaux colorway. I adore this dress and I think it looks very princess-like! I purchased this dress during the Winter Sale. (And Scarlet purchased her IW JSK during the Winter Sale too! I gave her the JSK when I saw her at the beginning of the meet, and she changed into it. It suits her so well!) 

I paired this JSK with an offbrand blouse (something I found in a local thrift store), offbrand socks, white tea parties, vintage jewelry, and a hime crown. This JSK is my favorite dress I own at the moment. ❤ I love the feel of the fabric, I love the comfortable back shirring, and I love the rose and ribbon print! The lace is absolutely gorgeous too… And I love the Bordeaux colorway. 

Here are some group photos from the meet-up:

Image

And a silly pic:

Image

Another group photo (those machines in the background were epic <3):

Image

As we walked down the street, we saw a sign that said “Lolita” and… we just had to snap another group photograph!

Image

Ashley also snapped a cute candid shot! I had no idea she took this photo until I looked through her Facebook album today and spotted this candid picture:

Image

It was pretty chilly that day too… so most of the time, I had a coat on. I wore my (only) Lolita-styled coat though! 😀

Image

All of the above photographs were taken by Ashley (HarmonyCloud).

Prior to this meet-up, when I finally decided to try on my new IW JSK, I asked one of my friends to snap some photos of me. It was not an official photoshoot, but it was a fun little mini-shoot (and we got some good photos)! 

Here is a light-hearted photo of me hugging the grandfather clock in my dorm house living room:

Image

I love grandfather clocks so much. ❤ I actually love clocks in general. Actually, I’m sitting at he table right next to this clock as I am typing these very words. If I’m doing homework in my house or taking a study break in my house, I love sitting in the living room next to this clock.

Here’s a photograph that shows off the Bertille Rose JSK very nicely:Image

Just look at those frills. >w<

Image

That is all for now! 

I will try to blog more consistently this summer. Right now I’m in the last stretch of classes (two more weeks of classes, then finals week…), so I am really busy at the moment. But once summer comes, I’ll definitely try my best to be more active in the Lolita Blog Carnival as well as making more posts about Lolita Fashion and my coordinates. 

(Also, sorry about this very photo-heavy post!)

Today’s Lolita Coord – Lady Sloth JSK

I love today’s coord. <333 The JSK was longer than I expected (I bought it off the Comm Sales a while ago) but I think it still works out alright. It just reminds me of how short I am. 😦 Image

Coordinate:

JSK – Lady Sloth

Blouse – Innocent World

Tights – Sears

Boots – Thrifted

Pochette – Thrifted

Mini Top Hat – Purchased from an artist at a convention

Jewelry and Accessories – Handmade or Thrifted

Image

And here’s the coat that warded off the cold:

Image

I noticed upon returning to my dorm that the coat’s buttons are all really loose so I need to fix them more tightly later. For now though, I need to focus on my papers and my homework!

In any case, I love wearing Lolita while I work because at least I can feel sort of like a princess while stressing out over my workload. XD;;

To finish up my post, here are some make-up shots from my Tumblr:
