I guess it would be a good idea to start with my own outfit...
Head bow, JSK (both Starry Night Theatre), ring (Melty Moon)- Angelic Pretty
Blouse, bolero, shoes- Bodyline
Tights, other jewellery- offbrand and Paris Kids
Card suit brooches- handmade
The idea was to attempt to expand the themes on the Starry Night Theater dress. I wanted to make it an outfit that was personal to me, rather than just wearing your bog-standard outfit or sticking to typical lolita "rules". I am awful at crafting things, but I did attempt to make some things too.
And here is the infamous deco-legs which appear to have gotten some people talking! This picture was taken during my outfit trial-run, which was vital to ensure the tights would actually be wearable. I had my SNT socks on hand at all times, just in case. I wore these whilst being fully aware that they would divide opinions. Generally, I think the responses have been about 85% positive. I am delighted with the positive responses and I was also grateful that I have been given some very helpful con-crit, which was actually incredibly useful! So a massive thank you to the friend who passed that information on for me.
I think my favourite outfit part was my more subtle aces tucked away up my left sleeve. My least favourite part was my hair, which is near impossible to style! I thought my hair looked a bit flat and that actually, the SNT head bow was not helping. I was happy to wear my favourite lolita ring, Melty Moon and I intended to wear a sparkly red bow ring I got the day before. Sadly, in my mad rush, the back of the ring broke off and I didn't have any superglue with me!
I am also a little unsure if I liked the gold star clip dangling from the top of my arm. I could have attached it to my head bow, but everybody seems to do that! This was an attempt to do something different. Truth be told, I don't think many people noticed it anyway!
Anyway, that is enough about me! Here are just a few of my favourite outfits. Please note, I figured that because HJ pictures are all over the net anyway, it would be ok to post these. But if anybody would like their pictures taken down, then please contact me and I will happily do that for you.
Abbey looked so cute in Lyrical Bunny! I thought the ears added a very fun touch to the outfit. Pink and lavender is also one of my favourite colour combinations! It is also clever how she added a few small touches of red, to match the little bits of red in the print.
I love those hair roses!
Me with turquoisekitten. That Juliette et Justine dress is so stunning in person! I also love the use of gold and the beautiful accessories, including those lovely tights and clock bag.
Sachiko!!!! She was one of the fashion show models, representing decora fashion. Her outfit was so bright and cheerful. And anything with ducks on it will always get my instant seal of approval!
This is Mo (in the middle) and her friend, whose name I keep forgetting! I think you are Julie? Please correct me if I got that wrong! I absolutely love the clock printed on that skirt. And I always love Mo's classic lolita style. Both girls looked so well put-together. And Mo gave me some awesome freebies too!
Kyra was selling her fantastic jewellery. If I wasn't trying to be careful with money, I could have quite easily brought her entire jewellery stand and I will definitely be thinking about buying some rings in the future. My favourite was the Puppet Circus inspired necklace and the jam jar ring. This was my very first time seeing Puppet Circus in person, and it didn't disappoint! Kyra looked wonderful in her gold accessories. Also, I really want those tights!
One of my favourite gothic lolitas from the Saturday. I was really disappointed that there were less gothic lolitas about on the Saturday, although I have seen some amazing gothic lolita pictures from the Sunday. I love the blouse and hair accessories in this outfit.
Tsukia in her amazing wig. It was impressively huge! I thought she looked absolutely adorable!
I am a fan of Wing's otome style. The dress is gorgeous and I like the colours used, especially paired together like this.
I could have quite easily included a lot more outfits in this post. Rest assured, that I got a lot of admiration for the people I met and saw that day. You are all a massive inspiration!
