Xmas meet Outfit Planning

 This saturday, the Scottish Lolitas are going to the christmas market for our xmas meetup! There will be chocolate and mulled wine, and I'm looking forward to it so much.

of course, this means it's time to plan some outfits!

Above; Dandy and Lolita versions of the cream and gold theme.
Angelic pretty "Radiant Candlelight" skirt, IW Gretel boots.

The rest is offbrand.

                   Detail shot here to show off the christmas tights that my boyfriend's mum gave me. The little deer are glittery!

Next, a slighty sweeter-than-usual co-ord, that I'm calling the "snow princess" outfit. It's mostly pastel blue and white, and chiffon. With angel print tights. The chiffon bonnet is one of my favourite accessories.

Halloween Lolita Idea: Bride

  With the simple addition of a veil to a shiro-loli outfit, you have a very recognizable Bride costume.
 A few brands have produced wedding style dresses, and actual intended-for-brides wedding dresses!
 Of course, you don't have to stick to the traditional white dress. Gothic Lolita with a veil, and a bouquet of flowers can be very beautiful and have great impact!

As it is halloween, and a relatively popular costume is a "ghost bride". The right makeup can easilly turn a bride Lolita outfit into a Ghost Lolita Bride!

key aspects: bouquet of flowers. veil. floral accessories.

Halloween Lolita Ideas: Alice in Wonderland

Alice in Wonderland, iconic, endlessly re-told, universally loved. Even regular lolita outfits are often mistaken for Alice costumes, so it's a very easy option for us at halloween!
The immediate image that comes to mind for most people when they think of Alice in Wonderland, is a blue dress and blonde hair as depicted by Disney. This makes it a nice simple costume, any blue dress, white apron and blonde wig, and you will be instantly recognized!
However, if you wanted to mix it up a little, or don't have a blue dress and don't want to buy one just for halloween, there have been plenty of other versions of Alice over the last hundred years.
Alice Liddel, often referred to as "the Real Alice", is the girl the story was written for. As you can see she is dark haired, and wore a light coloured dress.

                               In many versions, Alice wears yellow and/or has dark hair.

 As a huge inspiration in Lolita fashion, there have been many brand releases with Alice themed prints, or Alice sets in solid colours with aprons. In recent years there have even been official Disney Lolits Brand collaborations!

(pictured on the left, Angelic Pretty's "LaForet Disney Event" Alice print, and on the far right is the new Angelic Pretty/ Tokyo Disney Store official print)

 key aspects: Solid coloured dress (blue for easiest recognition), white apron, tea-set and rabbit themes accessories!

Halloween Lolita Ideas: Lolita Witch

 Another popular mainstream halloween costume, the Witch style can be easily applied to lolita co-ords with the simple addition of a pointed hat.
 Of course, you can go bigger with accessories than just the hat. Bottle necklaces, a broom with a bow, black cat themed prints and accessories would all work too!
 A twist on the style is to simply do it in any colour other than black, or wear the right accessories with a boy-style outfit!

Halloween Lolita Ideas: Sailor Moon

                                            (Above - Estradiazione on LJ as Lolita Moon)

Since SailorMoon Crystal, and the retro-anime revival trend, Sailor Moon jewelery, motifs, accessories and outfits have been everywhere! It's an exciting time for fans!
Sailor Lolita is a very well-known, standard sub-style of lolita, inspired by japanese school outfits combined with lolita fashion. Being such a standard style, every summer, almost every brand produces Sailor themed dresses and skirts and accessories - so they're easy t come by.
However, if you dont want to fork out for brand for a halloween co-ord, there are plenty options for cosplay accessories to adorn your existing pieces.

There are plenty of options for accessories and outfit pieces, official and fanmade!

 For a Dandy/Ouji option, Tuxedo Mask is an obvious choice. A typical black and white boy-style outfit, with a top hat, white mask, and replica star-shaped pocket watch, you have a Tuxedo Mask Co-Ord!
