I’ve been wanting to draw a few things about Lolitas lately, as in the Japanese fashion trend, not the novel. It’s a fashion trend I adore, because it’s basically like small pockets of history, walking around, inspired by Rococo and Victorian fashion and design.
I wanted to draw two posters, one showing the different types of Lolitas, and the other showing the proper layering required to achieve the Lolita look. So far, i’ve only done the “type” one, but it’s a good start!
Technically, only 4 “types” are actual types, the others are more like themes. The main 4 types are classic, punk, gothic and sweet.
I never had the courage to dress up as a lolita myself, but I love looking at all the magazines…
**EDIT - As added into the original posted (and often requested on the reblogs), this is now available as a poster print! So if you want to have this poster of incredibly cute knowledge of all that is lolita and awesome, YOU CAN!
I love this!
