I'm pretty sure that after my Year of No Lolita is up, I'm probably going to dress up again and start going to meetups more often.
I have to say, distancing myself from Lolita has been a pretty cool experience. I'm glad I still like it after all.
Things will never be the same, though. I relate best to early 2000's Lolitas and the original local community members, as well as the comm members I'm still friends with (or was friends with before they liked Lolita, in at least one case). I'm still fond of the connection between Gothic Lolita and oldschool VK, because I'm an old fart.
Anyway, why am I rambling? So, going back to the original topic, I'm probably going to start wearing Lolita again eventually. Except I want to start wearing Aristocrat to Goth meetups, and I think I might pick up actual Lolita for Lolita meetups. (Honestly, I will probably do both at Lolita meets.)
The Lolita style I am mostly likely to do is Gothic, but I actually own a Classical JSK, so...I might wear that style too. I want to do a classy, elegant style like tian_shi
wears. IDEALLY I'd also like to wear some semblance of Country Lolita/Natural-kei at home, but LULZ at that idea until I become rich and/or magically decide I love sewing.
Some pictoral references for friends unfamiliar with Lolita:( Photos and links under the cut to save your f-listCollapse )
ANYWAY, by now I have spent most of my day simply making this entry, but the point was that I somehow spent my morning looking at WIGS I would consider buying if I started wearing actual Lolita. I like to get my hair cut in a really boyish style, and it wouldn't really look good with Lolita, so I'd have to get at least one wig.
Here are a few that I liked. I'm really sorry, but the website doesn't allow me to save photos to my hard drive.Classic burgundy curls
This one is sooo pretty! The reviews are great too. I'm sure this would/will be my first wig."Rhapsody" fluffy long wig
I love this tousled, fuzzy look, like she just walked out of a fairytale forest *_*
I'm not sure which color I'd get, though. There's a Platinum, and I'd really like that, but I'm worried that such pale hair would look bad on me. I don't think my face is very feminine, and neither is the girl's who is modeling the Platinum wig. I'd either want that one, this Auburn one I have linked, or the Brown one. Or maybe Black...? For a witchy look?Long silver curly wigSilver pigtails
Both for a more striking goth/cyber look. Also, the pose of the girl in the pigtails is really cool...thinking of drawing Spyrill like that for practice...
I probably ought to research a nice straight wig as well, but most of those have straight bangs, which look awful on my square-shaped face.
WELL I'm going to go eat and actually be productive now
