Can we have a thread for lolitas we idolize, look up to or like? Please tell us why you like them and maybe even share your favorite coord they've worn.
>lolita and ouji both are welcome
>not a best lolita or best coord post don't spam the thread with negativity if you disagree
>let's refrain from selfposting and drama ok thanks
I really love her classic and simple style.
Milky Fawn even if she isn't a lolita anymore she's the reason I only buy brand she is my ultimate lolita idol <3 <3
I love shelby, she's so pretty and dresses so well. Her style really encouraged me to try new things with coords and to never feel "too old" to wear what I love. I'm so glad she's posting again.
I've always really adored MK, even back when she was on LJ. She's my inspiration most of the time, even though I know I will never be able to look as perfect as she does (and completely effortlessly, of course.)
I know I just sound jelly, but she really inspires me to continue Lolita even when I feel disenchanted by it.
Also, inb4 Fanny Rosie. She is hair goals, room goals, life goals.
Finally, another one of my LJ inspirations is lavenderlillies. She has such a lovely face.
I understand this isn't a nostalgia thread, but I honestly miss when EGL was active. Especially now around lucky pack season, I really enjoyed seeing what people got. I miss the reviews on new shops and I especially miss the lifestyle blogs that were around during that time. I still have so many random girl crushes on people who probably don't wear Lolita anymore, ahh. I'm looking through old d_l posts and I feel a bit silly now.
Everyone posted here is reasonably well known. It even says in OP not to selfpost. Come on man, we don't need this whole thread to be derailed because of "I don't like X, so it must be a selfpost."
Unpopular opinion time, but I really love Lor. She's not the best dressed or the prettiest, but she is such a kind soul. She always tries her best to help others and she's such a positive person.
RIP in pieces, sweet princes. hope you both post ouji shit again in the future.
I know it's weird, but when I like something or someone too much it makes me cry. Just because they find a place in my heart and I'm so happy about their existing. So here's Ophelia.
I hope she wouldn't mind I posted her. Just want to share my love with gulls. It's the perfect thread for her photo, I guess.
I used to really liked her positivity and happy-go-lucky attitude, but ever since her boyfriend dumped her, I feel like she's less...I don't know, it seems like she's kind of snarky and negative. I feel really bad for saying and I get that it was awful for her, but I'm hoping she'll get better in a few months.
She just doesn't feel like her old self.
> I feel really bad for saying
That's fine. You should feel bad for saying such kind of things. Lor irritates me so fucking much, but I imagined her reading this and feeling even worse. Show some respect for a girl you used to like, please.
>what is reading comprehension
Um, I said I hope that she does get better? You think I like seeing her like this? She's going through a rough patch, which is fine, but that doesn't mean I want to watch it.
I like her, but did she quit lolita? When she was hosting that giveaway, she made a post shortly after saying that she was quitting. I don't think she ever chose a winner. I do wonder if she made that post only to deflect attention from that?
I may get some hate for this but I admire Princess-Mint/Dollbe. I admire her art and sewing skills and also her confidence as a plus sized lolita. I know her coords aren't perfect but she just seems really kind and creative. I honestly wish I could be a little more like her.
I've been looking up to her since the old LJ days. She has such a mature style but she is never dull. She has a fantastic, unique and creative sense of style, I just adore her.
I'm actually quite fond on her "lower class"/"farm girl" take on the fashion I think it's lovely and how country lolita would ideally look. I can't help but want to see the look on a thinner girl though.
Same here I really like her style. Her dresses are kind of cute...i kind of want one...im just worried whether or not she can draft a patern for someone a third her size so I've been hesitant.
I love Shelby and I am glad she is finally back, but in all honesty katzixx is the best lolita there ever was and ever will be.
I agree... sort of. I like the idea of country lolita being a legitimate style instead of just sweet lolita with a straw hat on. But I'm not particularly fond of her dresses, I only like two of them I do feel like she misses the mark often (specially when she tries to go for sweet) but she's on the right track. She should definitely explore that country girl look a bit more.
Lempicka is one of my favorites
I love Bobbi's coords so much. She's been my inspiration since joining the comm.
I'm not sure if I would say that. Country lolita (and to an extent the country-like style the eventually evolved into lolita as it is today) was very much a unique style in the past.
I don't think you know what the difference between theme and style are. And egl used to be obsessed with it due to like 2 MM ad pictures. It's not really a thing in Japan, the west just latched onto it.
I've admired Rocaille for a long time now. Plus her love for all things classical, elven & Tolkien are like bonus cookie points.
My fav lolita is Jessi. She's super sweet in person too.
I've recently taken quite a liking to Lea. Her coords are simple, but they always seem very wearable.
This girl always has the best outfits. <3
Herajika was always an inspiration to me as well. She's so sweet and I love how she can pull off any style.
Is she still into Lolita/otome?
While she is not the most beautiful Japanese lolita, I really like Rin-chan. I met her a couple years back and she was so sweet. Her mannerisms were so cute. Whenever I see her pictures, it makes me smile.
Calm your tits dude. Not the OP but I'm a fan of Fahr's coords. She might be a bitch but her photos are nice to look at. She's one of my favorite lolitas too, just one of my least favorite people personality wise.
I know Re-ri would be considered an ita nowadays but I love the feeling of her photos so much.Also,her hair.
I know her and we run in the same circles. She was REALLY into that guy, and a lot of her wild child stuff and some edgyness (yuri on Twitter) are the results of that, ihmo
BUT how she treats people and what makes lor, well, Lor, are still all there. Still bubbly and genuine in person
I really love Charlie Jamison. I love each and every one of her coords and her personality on youtube is absolutely stellar. Honestly a bit envious on how many hauls she can afford, since I wish that I could just throw my money away on whatever I want.
>She was REALLY into that guy
I never understood why, he always came off as an asshole to me, but I feel so bad for her. I do hope she can see past him. She still is bubbly in person and I like seeing her happy because she has such a strong personality.
HD-chan has been one of my idols since I first got into gothic. She just always looks so polished and she has such good taste and ugh I'm just so jelly.
Her coords are a clusterfuck. Never have I seen someone use so many motifs in the one coord that don't go together, plus the colors never match. Even with her shoop. The one posted looks okay because it's mostly a set.
Personally, I really like bowsbeforeboyss sometimes her coords miss the mark but I love her OTT looks and her confidence and personality!
I 100% do not get the hype about her. I'm not trying to bully you or anything, but I've just never seen a coordinate from her except for this one picture and I don't understand what makes her so damn special.
I miss her.
What's her youtube? I'm always looking for more Lolita youtubers.
I also can't get behind this person, especially since they were such a snob on CoF. But to each their own.
Agreed that her COF behaviour was annoying, but her passive aggression on any critisisim shes given that she throws around on her tumblr when faced with it, and how she loves to be the ''edgy'' lolita and feels the need to post ''drunk nudes'' almost every single time she gets drunk or high.
I wish I could like her but shes just so annoying...
beauty is subjective anon, not everythings going to cater to you.
if you need a safe space where noone disagrees and you can surround yourself in only opinions that wont trigger you i think you should just consider getting off the internet...
>I don't understand what makes her so damn special
Back before the dream dress thread became bitter and boring gulls were actually interacting and rooting for each other, and HP was one of the ones who had been there forever so she was prominent in them
something is legitimately wrong with you, this is not a "most beautiful lolitas thread" it's a thread for lolitas that we like. and believe it or not, people can like ugly people, or fat people, or people of other races. amazing concept I know but not everything is about beauty standards, especially since some of the prettiest lolitas are the biggest cunts in the universe. So stop embarrassing yourself.
I've been told she still is. She posts on instagram but it's private.
I have always loved her! She's everything I hope to grow to be. Even though she uses lolita dresses a lot I don't know if she considers herself a lolita. I still adore her though. her style is very mature and classy and fun. None of the costumy childishness you see so often so it's great for her age and status.
Honestly, most oldfags and well dressed people don't really post on any lolita communities like CoF I've been noticeing. I kinda feel like CoF is largely for newfags and attention whores? On instagram there's so many great lolitas that never post on CoF and quite a few don't even tag their posts as lolita I just find them by stalking or liked posts on my feed. Most people seem to age out of the community...
My favourite Lolita, Fahr/ribbonplague. her coords are to 75% spot on. Show me otherwise if you can.
She has much better coords than that one, if that's all you've seen. She's pretty, she's got some baller pieces in her wardrobe, she's nice (helped people in the old dream dress threads) and she's into guns; add that all together and you get the "hype".
Fahrlight helped me with lots of beginner questions, when I started to wear Lolita in 2013. She always replies friendly and helpful.
It's the anons favourite Lolita, it's subjective.
IG is going to be where the lolita community mainly congrigates (if it isn't already) it fills that void left when LJ stoped being a thing. in facebook it's entierly too difficult to connect and make new friends. adding random lolitas you think are cute or cool is frowned upon and everyone is basically stuck with no lolita friends outside of their own comm. on IG that sort of stuff is common place and it works almost like lj. with people blogging /posting pics about their personal lives too, much like in lj. nobody really paid attention to lj blog posts without pics anyway so its like the best of lj IMO. not to mention that through it we are also connected to actual japanese alt fashion people which we never really had before. I think posting to lolita specific communities is quickly becoming a thing of the past and people just rather post on their personal social media profiles and tag it with lolita.
I love her outfits and I'm fine with her 2edgy5me "I'm drunk" stuff but her attitude to crit seems really childish. She should just ignore the crit or take what she can from it rather than blowing it up and all the tacky "fuk da h8rs" crap.
There goes that weird fahr/capslock troll
Hopefully she just needs more time to get back to being herself
I talked to her a bit in real life once and she seemed super down to earth but I feel like I acted like a total embarrassment D: She was really good colour balance in her co-ords though
In my opinion, somebody here is obsessed with fahr/posting fahr/making it look like self posting. Somebody has issues.
Her coords are fine, other than her personality. Still, it is up to the people posting her if they like her or not. I am here for inspiring coords, not for dramu.
My opinion about her is a little different. All about her urges me to dislike her. From the whole Loki shtick to her camwhoring. But I will never understand why people claim she dresses bad? She dresses well, not extremely special, but well enough to look pleasant.
>coords are 75% spot on.
Its some shitty indie brand. While the idea was ok, the actual jsk is shit. There were some reviews posted here showing the bad sewing and laziness. Even in the pic of HD there she put a belt on it to get some shape.
Obviously you're embarrassed of yourself too or you wouldn't have immediately deleted that maid image.
I'm going to stop posting to avoid shitting up the thread, maybe you could do the same and stop providing your personal input to each lolita. Post a relevant image or two instead.
Choke used to look way cuter when she wasn't into OTT shit and shooping her face/wearing loads of makeup. Pic related is probably over 6 years old now.
I love this chick, but I can't for the life of me remember her blog name. I followed her when I first got into lolita and she had some really nice simple co-ords.
I love her too. She always has really balanced opinions which helps make lolita seem more welcoming for newbies. I find her videos really fun to watch even as a more experienced lolita.
I really love Angiiichan & Kairi, they both have really cute and unique styles and they always put together interesting outfits.
I just want to say thank you for a positive thread. As someone that suffers from a lot of self-esteem issues and is struggling with weight issues and just feeling generally shitty, I was really shocked and happy to see that someone posted me here. Even if it was just one person, it means a lot to me and brightened my day. Thank you.
I really love Abiba's style, it looks very natural.
Mira from the central FL comm is one of my favorite lolitas - she always looks stunning, even when she puts on more comfy looking coords. She's also super nice and funny, and I just look up to her a lot. I really hope to get to know her more.
She doesn't wear lolita much anymore, but Rocaille will always be one of my favourites.
She has such lovely pieces and seems really down to earth.
Saying this, i get no attention on IG. I thought at least newbies would want to see my instagrams of high tea and brand but the lolitafashion tag gets me no hits and no lolitas ever respond to my comments. Should I be using a different tag? I just want online friends in the fashion!
Totally adore her grotesque style, it inspires me a lot.
I hate instagram because of the shitty picture quality. Now all pictures you get are grainy shitty lit tiny pics for ants.
I miss the era of 2010-2011 when all lolitas started to move on to tumblr, where you could post nice high quality pictures. It was the best place for lolitas imo.. Really a shame that SJW made it unbearable, so everyone moved on to facebook which is even worse imo. Now there is no real place to share good pictures left...
Tumblr isn't "sjw" if you unfollow people and use tumblr savior, it's a blessing. I have found myself using the format less though.
I actually really like IG because it's almost all original content and not just people reblogging dresses they want. What really annoys me though is that glw, lockshop, and rockstar are always the top posts in the Lolita tags even if the post is cosplay. They are awful for tag spam.
Still, most people stopped using tumblr like 2 years ago because of that.
I personally can't have instagram because I don't own a smartphone and I can't be assed with one, so I feel left out.
I continue to post on tumblr but I receive less and less notes. It feels like it isn't worth it anymore taking the time to take and edit nice pictures. Maybe that's why IG became so popular. It's basically involving zero effort taking grainy selfies or mirror shots, applying some ugly pre set filter on it and posting it on that app.
I agree, a lot of CoF pictures are formated for instagram with Cof being a complete at after thought. I enjoy instagram a lot more, I don't really post on CoF unless I'm unhappy with my coord and am looking to improve it, but even so, I don't know why I bother I never get anything out of it.
I like the stalking capabilities, of IG. I love being able to see more than just peoples lolita outfits. I love alt fashion in general so I love seeing what lolitas wear outside of lolita. For those who use it as a fashion instead of a costume it is almost always an extension of their personal style and it's lovely to see.
The only down side is since its not a moderated community, a lot of unrelated things end up in the tag.
Anyway, I think this is quite off topic so I'll contribute with Sapphiradoll! Her style is so lovely she's such an inspiration.
There could be a million things at play desu. Are the pictures good quality and clear, is the filter gross? (Generally stay away from IG filters) Are the pictures composed well and aesthetically pleasing? (Play with your inner photographer!) are your coords good? Are you ugly?
Anyway, this is off topic again so I'm posting this girl I've been mildly obsessed with Miladeblois. I like her style, I like her hair but most of all I like her mildly derpy face. It's so endearing!
This. People constantly complaining about tumblr and sjw are just spewing repeated memes and don't realize that you don't have to see that stuff on your dash if you don't want to.
Also I have a lolita blog and follow tons of great lolita blogs. Not sure what shortage the other anon is talking about.
Hide_Vi is a really nice person and her coords are always look gorgeous.
I like Lillith's style. She was a big inspiration to me when I started lolita.
I used to hate her style because I'm a whiny shit, but I've calmed tf down in the last year and I really like a lot of her stuff. I started looking into her coords more and her style is pretty sweet.
>stay away from IG filters
A lot of Lolitas I follow milk the shit out of filters and still get 50+ likes on sub-par photos.
There's actually a girl I follow who has maybe 200 followers and her photos get upwards of 50 likes each, regardless of quality. Is there some magic tag that I'm not using that I'm not aware of, or is she paying for likes (I don't even know if that's a thing?)
Filters are great, IG filters are bad. Most jfashion people use aillis/line camera. And tag spamming is the best way to get likes if you're a desperate fame whore. It's probably not a specific tag but the amount/combination of tags she's using.
What filters do you recommend?
I haven't really used them because I like to tweak pics on my own but I figured if I can get a nice filter that would be much easier than having to go through 7 steps each time.
I like her unusual color combos and skirt coords. Nokecha is a favorite of mine.
That's anya-aesthetics. I love her ootd shots.
It's Violet Fane. While the closure at the front is awkward, there is still a lot of potential to make good coords with it. It's just not something I would suggest to a novice to try to work with.
I'm right there with you.
I have been I love with her for ever. She's always been a really good friend and is one of the most helpful people I have known. Seriously I look up to her in both fashion and personality.
i love the way she styled her hair! there should be more posts like this- that push the rules of lolita without making it look bad. she has super short hair, but makes it look elegant and work with her coord
she's one of my favorites too!
>not noticing the pic is almost 3 years old
She's probably going to see these posts and think she has a creepy stalkerish fangirl... but good god this woman knows what I like, I can't help it. Haters will hate, but this woman is my idol.
i love her,too. i must admit, i am a bit jelly, i feel like much of her style comes from the fact that she comes from wealth, however she does do some creative accessorising and she's sweet, so...
I adore xylia-x. Her coords always look so rich and elegant and I look up to her as an Indian lolita.
Yeah I have seen mixed mixed people but I hope you aren't implying they all look the same. It all depends on where their parents origin from and to what degree they are mixed.
I always thought she was southeast asian/white.
Her look is quite unique, so it's interesting to hear where she has her origins.
Oh god, shes adorable. Why am I not following her
I wish I could ask her to hang out since i drive by where her LM says she's from a lot but it sounds weird
My personal favorite is Janice. I wish I were from wherever she's from in Australia so I could hang out with her. She looks like the kind of person who is easygoing and always knows something fun to do
I think she has an overbite. The same thing happens to me when I smile really spontaneously or don't think about it and consciously realign my jaw when I smile for photos.
>lack of braces as a child is suffering as an adult
Just because i find her "ugly"/don't share your opinion doesn't mean you should get so buttfrustrated about it. And no i look pretty cute. Or so people say.
Are you Mila herself or a friend of hers?
I have an overbite too, it seems super weird to realign your jaw for pics. Specially if you don't do it every time you smile in general. It's bizarre, you'll end up looking like someone else in photos. I can't imagine being so fame hungry, you might as well be photoshoping.
I'm the person who originally posted her. Seriously stop. You're not doing her any favors, you're just making it look like she's here self posting/telling everyone how cute she thinks she is.
I think someone might be doing that on purpose desu for...jealousy reasons? Making it look like self post then generating hate towards the person because of said self post, then asking for dirt on them is a pretty standart way to make a lolcow.
>I can't imagine being so fame hungry, you might as well be photoshoping.
mom goals. I just had a little one and I hope we'll be a duo half as fabulous and kawaii and her and her daughter.
Man, there's so many gorgeous girls I admire, Fanny, Xylia, Obsixwi...they're all an inspiration.
Seriously. I'm >>8810518, and I don't even post pics anywhere. I'm saying for family photos and shit, I always have to be conscious of how I'm smiling or I look stupid as hell. It's not like "realigning my jaw" is some process; I just line up my teeth properly... And I do try to do it when I smile unless it's very spontaneous.
Electricspacecarousel is honestly what I imagine in my head when I dream about what my lolita goals are. I want her whole wardrobe, her style, her everything. I wouldn't mind meeting her in person as well, she seems really sweet.
siriusc is one of my favourite lolitas. I love seeing her post.
I think she's such a sweetheart and super cute.
Only other weebs like her. She seems hella poor. All she has is shitty bodyline. If she cared more about quality than quantity she would have a nice small wardrobe but instead she just has a shit ton of ugly cheap dresses. Bodyline makes nice wardrobe fillers but to have your entire wardrobe be basically just bodyline is just...sad.
She never stopped wearing lolita/otome she's just not a fame whore/doesn't care to post for ass-pats. If you keep an eye out you see her pop up on other London Lolita's instagram. This was posted four days ago.
I find her creepy because she really does seem to be a major ageplayer, I don't know any grown women who has a room like her. I love sweet lolita as well but I'm not going to deck out my room with little girl toys.
i really like her style too, she can do both simple and ott well and her coords are always interesting.
also it's a bit weird, but i'm kind of fascinated by her skin color... i live in a pretty mixed city but i've never seen anyone with that shade of golden brown irl.
nah she actually said she sold most of her bodyline and started to just save up for brand. and even at one point she said something like she wanted to have less lolita pieces and just wear general cute shit more often so when she does wear lolita it feels more special. her lolita wardrobes getting smaller. its weird seeing lolitas change so much.
her white eye make-up isn't doing her any favor, but she's still pretty cute i think. i also find her voice very soothing, and i like that she seems to be a lifestyler.
she's definitely a weeaboo, but i wish people would stop calling everyone vaguely childish an age player. even if she was, what people do in their own bedroom really shouldn't concern you, anon...
To be fair she used to be the most adored lolita in the whole country, it was quite a thing. Almost like the whole community revolved around her. She was everywhere, at every event, friend with Baby's and AP's staff, organising the best events, living the most beautiful lifestyler dream. Then she vanished.
There's a difference between being youthful and literally acting like a child. If you can't see why a grown woman that behaves like a little girl is cringeworthy then you definitely have a problem.
Also I don't think lolita is necessary associated with childish behavior, if anything the lady-like nature of the fashion inspires a more mature and sofisticated personality.
Agreed. She's really pretty and has such amazing coordination skills. Plus she seems really classy to me, if that makes sense? Like she has good manners and carries herself well, but not in a boring way.
shes slutty as shit and a hige sjw
used to like her but her coordinates are 90% look at how big my hair is im totes not compensating for being obese >>8804311
