Valentines Meetup Photos

A week late.

Last saturday, ScotLoli got together for out Valentines meetup. I had planned several outfits to go with the "Opposites Attract" theme, and wore none of them.
Plasticskittles and I planned instead to wear outfits based on a Mermaid and Pirate. Both of us would be in cream/ivory.

The meet itself was a lot of fun. We went to a usual haunt of ours, The Willow Tea Rooms.
Each of our places had a cute party bag, filled with sweets!
And the tables were decorated with hearts.

After lunch, we had a suitably romantic-themed quiz.
I didn't expect to do particularly well, but between us our team won!

"Pirate and The Alices" each one a box of chocolates for our quiz answers.
Thank you Alices, for knowing so much more than me!
And Thanks to the organizers, for putting together such a fun meet.

Photoshoot with Jurga KalinauskaitÄ—

A week ago I had a studio photoshoot with Jurga KalinauskaitÄ—.
It was a lot of fun and I hope to get back in the swing of modeling this year. 



The shoot itself took place in the same college I used to go to! It was so strange being back there, but also really nice to see it again.

I love these pictures so much, Jurga is a talented photographer. Hopefully we will work together again sometime soon.

The Light Up Dress

A trend I never expected to come to lolita, but really like, is the LED Dress!
The concept is exactly what it sounds like, LED lights incorporated into a dress. This has appeared on stages and celebrities on occasion before, but in the last few months it's been appearing slowly as a regular-person fashion accessory. And I really think it could become a trend.

These two are examples from Tumblr,
first, the very popular Doxiequeen1 in one of her many, impressive, fully handmade dresses that incorporated LED lighting;


Second, is the first example I saw in a specifically Lolita fashion outfit, Jollymistress wearing lights to illumate Day Dream Carnival!


Next, is the "Hikaru Skirt" by designer Kiyoyuki Amano.
These will apparently be commercially avaliable eventually, but right now are in prototype.


The only currently commercially avaliable light-up dress I can find right now is this one from RoseWholesale;

Unfortunately it is currently out of stock, and not particularly suited to lolita fashion anyway.

But I am very interested to watch this idea develop, and hope it becomes a major trend in fashion for this year!

"Opposites Attract" Outfit Planning

The valentines meetup is coming up soon, and the theme is "Opposites Attract"! This means I can really flex my "twinning" muscles. I adore twin outfits, as a concept and a look.

First, Nun Lolita and Dandy;

\despite the massive popularity of nun-lolita in the last year, I haven't seen many boystyle counterparts. So this is my attempt at creating one!

Waistcoat: AATP
Neckpiece: metamorphose
Shorts: F+F

Dress: Metamorphose
neckpiece: Marble
Socks: BTSSB
Next, I decided to use my two Meta Nun OPs to create identical opposites

Both Dresses; metamorphose
Black bolero: Putumayo
White bolero: vintage
Black hat: Miho Matsuda
White Hat: offbrand and hand-decorated.
Both pairs of socks and shoes: Metamorphose

The other item I have a duplicate of is AATP Vampire Requiem. I have the red JSK and Black Skirt, so used those to creat vampire twins!

JSK and Skirt: AATP
Blue Blouse: Metamorphose
Both pairs of Socks: Metamorphose
Headbow with print: Baby
Solid black headbow: Heart E
Ribbon chokers from Etsy stores.
All decorative roses offbrand!

Which is your favourite? Do you like twin styles?
