The Kodona Code: Introduction

There are a great many helpful 'getting started' guides to lolita fashion, the most comprehensive and well known is probably The Lolita Handbook on LiveJournal.
But what about Kodona? It is always mentioned, but never gone into in depth. So, to right this, the fabulous http://fyeahkodona.tumblr.com/ got in touch with me and suggest we collabourate on making a boystyle guide to help inspire some new princes!

The guide will be split up into sections, that I will post as individual posts here on Goths Just Wanna have Fun. Once they have accumulated a bit, I will make a Page for the Kodona Code for ease of use.

I hope you all enjoy our efforts!

Everyday Outfit; Goths in the Cold!



Just as the weather seemed to be creeping out of the true depths of winter, we got another layer of frost! Brrr. So here I am in casual lolita, being eaten by a giant snake. I mean, wearing a big cosy scarf.
Jsk: WestMend
The rest is Offbrand.

Although I bought this JSK a little while ago, this was the first time I got to wear it. It really is lovely and comfortable. I bought it to wear casually, a simple black jsk is a wardrobe staple for any gothic lolita I feel. However, during the day one of the shoulder straps broke. the stitching just clean came apart. Easy enough to fix, but a little annoying.

2011, Year of the Dandy?

Is it my imagination, or has there been a massive increase in interest in kodona and the boy-style side of our beloved fashion? Todays valentines post opened my eyes to it, as there were four valentines for soem well-deserving dandys in our community!
I will never completely abandon Lolita style, of course, I love it equally to Kodona/Ouji, but it is quite exciting to see the latter become more popular. maybe there will be more development on that side of things this year?
Lolita has evolved and changed so much, so many sub-styles and obvious 'eras' have come and gone. Maybe it's time for the princes to catch up?

Boy Dandy Photoshoot




Today, Harry (http://www.flickr.com/photos/xargon_dragon) and I went out and about for another photoshoot. This time with a dandy theme rather than lolita. (mostly out of us both being utterly enamoured by the red coat.. haha)
It was cold and misty, which added a nice atmosphere. Some of the ice was still on the ground, making it all slippery at some points! Luckily I didn't fall. Although it was a close one!

2011 Resolutions

So, it's 2011. A whole new year, a new start.
And a new blog layout. It will change, often, because I like to mix it up a little. Hopefully soon I'll make a banner that looks nice too although I'm not sure what sort of thing to go for.

My new years resolutions this year will be much the same as most year's;

- Take More Pictures.
I haven't been too bad with this one in 2010, but there were a lot of outfits that went unblogged due to lazyness.

-Buy less Coats.
This one is off to a bad start as I won an ebay auction for a new coat yesterday. There are 17 coats in my wardrobe. 17! Nobody needs that many coats! Everyone has their weaknesses I suppose, for some it's shoes or handbags or makeup. Mine is coats.
However, the coat I did just buy is an antique hunting tailcoat. So, excpect many photos of that!

- Update regularly.
I probably wont ever impose an 'update scedule' on my blog, as I find that pointlessly stressful and wouldn't enjoy blogging as a hobby if I started putting pressure on myself. But I'd like to try and make my posts a bit less sporadic, as there were huge gaps and then floods of posts all at once last year.

- Post more art.
My main hobby is drawing and painting, and lolita influences quite often spill over into my art. So I might start posting my things here.

- Kodona
A new resolution for 2011. Do kodona properly. I've always worn a 'casual' version of the style whenever I didn't want to wear lolita, or it wasn't appropriate to. But it's grown on me a lot, and I'd like to start building up a proper Kodona wardrobe and look.

- Eat more cake and drink more tea?
probably not physically possible!

Happy New Year everyone, I hope 2011 brings good things for us all!
