Post your favorite blogs, tumblrs, instagrams or youtubers etc, or feel free to self-post!
Please fuck up all my feeds with beautiful lolita shit.
I really like lacealamode.com and kiznakasady.blogspot.ca
desu it's really infuriating that shannie hasn't made a youtube chanel yet her wardrobe and interior decorating skills are to die for
I like your coords but green hair looks really bad with lolita.
These are some of the Lolita/Ouji Youtubes i follow.I think their tumblrs,insta,etc are somewhere on their youtube page as well.

Then ofcourse for "famous" youtubes there's deerstalker, Lovely Lor, etc.
You are kidding me right? http://youtu.be/am1FSFFg8fk
That video is like a nooby checklist. She was in a cringe thread a while back and one of her videos was literally her just complaining that women who cosplay in skimpy clothes are basically acting like sluts and should have more self respect. No thanks.
I'm starting my lolita YT soon after researching, planning, and saving for months. I already have a lot of ideas outlined. I'm just waiting on the last of my equipment minus the camera to arrive as well as finalizing my personal branding plans. I've practiced speaking on camera to get over my shyness, but it's still a problem. I'm not used to interacting with the camera like it's an actual person.
As for cameras, I'm still torn between the Sony A5000 and the Canon t5i. I'm really digging the Sony's size for convenience, as well as its Wifi capabilities for Instagram posting. However, I'm still drawn to the t5i. I'm aware that the auto focus may be noisy, but I'm hoping it's fixable with an external mic.
As soon as I decide, I'm placing my order for a camera. Do you guys have any experience with either one?
Yeah dude. Inky Rose is cute as fuck tho. They're both in my community so I've seen their videos before.
PP doesn't seem like a shitty person just really naïve. She seems pretty young, she'll probably grow out of it.
Well, what do you gulls want to see in youtubes/instas etc? Kinda tired of 10 minute long videos of girls talking about a bunch of untrivial life shit and 10 seconds of actually showing the dress
I assume you've already looked at a lot of these kinds of things but comparing side by side can sometimes help.
These reviews are by the same person:
You have nice coords but your hair looks aweful and your makeup makes you look quite old and doesn't suit lolita.
Also please invest in a better camera. You have some nice dresses so you obviously can afford it. My cellphone takes better photos then whatever camera you are using. You are pretty cute and seem to have a good eye for coordination and you would really benefit from some of these changes. Hope I dont come off as blunt or rude, i just woke up. I'd love to see you improve.
i wasn't impressed with the last one, but scarfingscarves's new Last Week Lolita News had me laughing out loud: https://youtu.be/JhgE--FXSgk
sweetexpedition.tumblr.com is mine, all oc
some other tumblrs which i really like and are mostly/all oc as well:
Wait did you get that from my YouTube? Yeah I haven't updated the bio in years since the whole Google+ take over,
I'm 21. I just have a bit older looking of a face, it helped a lot when you're trying to buy booze underage or get into an R movie before you're 17 so it has its up sides.
Thanks for the encouraging words. The camera thing I can understand, which a lot of the quality issues are coming from the collage and stickerapp I use to piece together some of my photos so if you have an suggestions for new apps please send them my way.
Hair and Makeup are two things I am not changing, I may never be the holy grail almighty Lolita icon Saint because of my styling choices and that's fine.
I'm thinking it's just Lolita that's aging me a bit because I feel like I look young in my normie IG _illuminaughtyyy_
loved it! I laughed super hard I just wish shehad a different background for the Last Week Lolita News segment.
What ever happened to manasamatemple/last snow/sugar--rose? One day she left lj and then one day she she left tumblr and locked down her blog.
Can't believe I didn't save all her coords. She was beautiful and an inspiration.
Ohhh, I didn't know that. I remember people used to post nasty secrets about her years ago which prompted her to close her LJ; sad to hear that she closed her tumblr now as well. Her coords are really nice! I hope she's alright.
Her hair looks really damaged. It might be the shade of green though. Is it suppose to be that color? It looks really bad and washed out. The color isn't good at all and the shades are uneven and all over the place. The pictures with wigs are good, but the wig quality looks pretty low too.
This girl is part of my cringe subscription list. She's like a tiny unevolved Jillian who's too new to the fashion to be giving anyone advice. She got scared off by /cgl/ finding her and, of course, quit the fashion for Larme and pastel fashions. I guess she came back?
Speaking of which, I'd like to request some fun unknown cringe lolitas.
This is awkward, but I'm in your comm and I just watched your wardrobe video. I've been looking for that specific pink bag you showed for a while now. Are you willing to sell it/looking to replace it?
some YouTube wardrobe posts, i really enjoy watching lolita youtubers in general
>10 minute long videos of girls talking about a bunch of untrivial life shit and 10 seconds of actually showing the dress
Continuing on from what that anon said, I know what else should be avoided in videos that lolitas seem to get wrong so so often.
>shaky camera. Either get a tripod or put it on some books.
>Not knowing what they're going to talk about
>boring unrelated chat (no one cares about ur anecdotes)
and on the topic of unboxing videos:
>HALF A FUCKING HOUR OF "Oh I had such a pain with the shipping, it was the worst! This happened, then that happened, then my parcel ended up in the amazon and got stolen by a tribe of savage monkeys, but then THIS happened and blah blah blah but anyway I got my parcel this morning, let's open it!"
Like seriously, if something happened with your shipping just be like 'shipping took a long while' because most of these 'post errors' are girls making mistakes while ordering.
Like fuck you for thinking we care about your postal dilemmas
Is it weird to have a givaway when you reach 50 followers on tumblr? I've been on tumblr for around 2 years and I don't think I'll be getting any more but it jsut seems so fun to have a giveaway
Is this girl for real? https://youtu.be/am1FSFFg8fk
I'm not saying you absolutely can't find a nice blouse or accesories at a thrift store... But "loliable" dresses sound like ota in the making.
Why don't these poorfags understand they're not entitled to wearing the fashion.
And at 15K I fear the waves of itas that will flood the communities.
I get so salty when these itas have shit quality videis and shit content to go with them, and get more views and subscribers than me. What are they doing that I'm not. I feel like even though this is fun for me, I'm working hard for nothing
I've thought about doing this so many times but I don't know if it'll be a good thing for my channel to be associated with 4chan, maybe I can post several videos later and one of them will be mine? I don't know really ii just know that my content itself needs to improve
In few wprds, they're asspatting. Poorfag lolitas love being told ehat they do is A-ok because they're poor and they deserve to be happy. Enabling is another word that comes to mind.
Of course any argument against will be seen as "classist" or "elitist"
Srsly fuck this.
I unfollowed taharakeiko after a long time because her pictures started to really unnerve me. Her legs are really skinny. Inb4 fatty-chan, I'm not talking normal skinny, like there's barely any muscle definition, she's skeletal. Her expression is always a bit vacant and far away, and while I love seeing the Shaun the Sheep stuff in particular, something just started giving me the creeps. I feel bad about it but there's just something off about her.
>Hair and Makeup are two things I am not changing
Then you will continue to look like shit. No one cares about being a "lolita icon saint," the bare minimum is not to have gross hair and bad makeup.
Some lolita I follow on IG bought followers and it's so obvious because it went from something like 300 to 1000+ in something like two weeks and her posts get maybe 20 likes each.
I don't know why I'm sharing I just think it's funny. I didn't know people really bothered buying followers anymore.
Looking through your videos right now. Do you think you could invest in a better webcam for yourself? You mic seems fine, though. With your AatP unboxing, I really wanted to see your print, but the low quality made it super hard to see and washes you out a lot.
I love the background of your room and having another gothic lolita on youtube, though. I had to kind of piece that together from your looks, background, and your tastes in brand.
Do you think maybe you could make an intro video for your channel and introduce yourself? I think that would hook a lot of lolitas looking for something darker since a looot of big Youtube lolitas are sweet. Explain you're a gothic lolita, enjoy singing and music, and anything else you'd like to add!
well i have an issue getting more traffic in my channel, most of my videos so far have been unboxings so i know thats not interesting, thinking of expanding to tutorials and more hands on stuff plus other themes beside lolita fashion
<iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/3cJKnDv9D9M" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>
'lolita haul' only 3 bodyline blouses and 1 badly damaged meta dress , so it was probably free.
I feel so sorry for her comm for putting up with her
My brother's actually getting me a better camera for my birthday! And yeah, I figured I could add something different to the mix since I can be sort of a sweet-ish gothic lolita what with my taste in prints and colorways and I'm also really into ero which you don't see much of on youtube. An intro is something I could probably do sometime next weekend when I get the urge to dress up.
Are there any youtube lolitas that update regularly anymore? I know some people say that sweet lolitas are still active but so far all the sweet lolitas that I've seen have all moved on to other kinds of fashion.
I just made a blog for my wardrobe post but I want to make it a baking + old school lolita/ jfash blog. It's jesuisboulanger on blogspot. I've never had a blog and I found the layout quite fiddly so feedback is appreciated (hence I'm posting here).
Oh, and my ig is jennnyren.
The bread thing started as a joke but I do bake often.
They got posted on 4chan, some small portion of their views (and possibly even a couple of subscribers) are from seagulls who went there to view it for the lulz. At least you can take comfort that they're providing "entertainment" in being laughed at instead of serious views?
I am glad more people are blogging, and baking is something I'm also interested in, so I'll definitely keep up with your blog.
A few layout things that caught my attention right away:
>You need to adjust your widths.
The main portion of your blog is too wide. It all fits into my screen, but it cuts off the sidebar to the point of it being unreadable. You can adjust the width of the two by going to Template>Customize>Adjust Widths.
>How to Follow
You should add a button/widget or two that allows people to follow you easily. Google Friend Connect and Bloglovin are both relatively popular.
This doesn't bother me much, but maybe make a cute header quickly or even switch to a nicer font for your blog title, as it's pretty bland right now.
It can take a while to get a nice layout, so I feel your pain. Your wardrobe is adorable, btw.
What are your gulls thoughts on coord cross-posting to tumblr/IG/CoF/LB? Do you make an effort to post different shots to each platform?
Do you get sick of seeing the same coord shots from those who don't?
Are there any good brolitas out there? It feels like the only one I see is Johnny/Emily and I just can't stand people who don't fix their eyebrows.
Same problem with hijabi lolita desu.
Seriously fix your eyebrows.
I don't really care about it being OC or unique, I'm from that time when everybody anyway looked the same because they all had the karami jsk or everybody wore sugary carnival. I can't think of anyone that is OC within this fashion honestly.
Different anon but I also started a channel and have 2 unboxing videos so far. I'm planing on more including a lucky pack unboxing and review of the where I got it.
I don't wear only Lolita but so far I'm stuck with unboxing and store reviews.
I take heaps of photos whenever I'm trying to do coord shots, so I'll usually post a close-up on my insta and then full shots on my blog/tumblr so there's a variation.
For people who post the same thing on all their social media, I feel like there isn't a need to follow all of their platforms since it's just redundant.
Thanks for the tips! I made it narrower, added a background, added a subscribe button, and got rid of the sidebar. I'll put together a banner or something when I get the chance.
Hopefully it looks all right!
Here's another one from Tumblr: If you like classic lolita. http://anaphrodisiacs.tumblr.com/
Spelendora is a male lolita from Russia. He doesn't blog as much. http://spelendora.tumblr.com/
There's also David, but does not use his Tumblr that much as he used to. However, David is on instagram a lot. He's a huge brandwhore for AP.
From what I've seen on social media, male lolitas are either super gay or they're really submissive to their gfs. They try hard to separate that from lolita on their social media accounts.
Anaphrodisiacs was totally adorable thanks :D
Hm, isn't David the one that was on kawaii pateen? I don't know mang but I kind of have a problem with boys talking with that fake female pitch
>>From what I've seen on social media, male lolitas are either super gay or they're really submissive to their gfs. They try hard to separate that from lolita on their social media accounts.
You mean to say that's why they don't usually have videos but just pictures?
>Hm, isn't David the one that was on kawaii pateen? I don't know mang but I kind of have a problem with boys talking with that fake female pitch
Idk if I've seen that video of him on Kawaii Pateen. David has been wearing lolita a long, long time. He hails from DMV and made friends with the New York Lolitas at Otakon. I remember him from a special on Japanese fashion in New York in 2010 wearing lolita. He tried to break into the fashion world in New York and later in Los Angeles, but failed cause his college degree was shit. He moved to Japan in 2012 to teach English. If you ever met a male homosexual, their voices are pitched differently.
I forgot one more male lolita. Princess Jordy.
Not who you're replying to but I know plent of gay guys and their voices are perfectly normal and indistinguishable from those of straight men. Not all gay men are effeminate lispy catty drag queen caricatures like David is.
How would I set pictures as the background for my pictures like pic related? I want to have more interesting backgrounds.
Also what are your favourite apps for stickers?
Insta (40% lolita): https://instagram.com/voldiee/
Tumblr (pic related): voldiee.tumblr.com
I just remember when he applied to model for Baby at one of the NY cons. They chose him, then freaked out when they found out that "David" was actually male, and asked a slew of questions to make sure he wasn't a sissy. Still got to model for them, but I can't remember if they put him in a dress or not.
I'm finally starting to blog somewhat regularly, so I'd be interested in concrit/feedback on everything from the layout to my writing style! The latest post is a continuation of some translating I was doing in the last "Lolita in Japan" thread.
By clickable links, do you mean that you don't like how they pop up in the blogger viewer if you click them? Or are you on mobile and they take you to a new window?
I might need to disable the mobile viewing option until I can sort that out a bit more, since I've mostly worked on the desktop view so far.
Your links should be noticeable, underlined/bold/italic/different colour, since you're highlighting other words in pink which aren't clickable. Distinguish the two. I agree about the images being clickable and popping out, an image should only be clickable if it directs somewhere or can be enlarged for detail.
I made an edit where I added a bit more padding between the headers, contents and links. The images are a bit too close to the text or too far away. Padding is another thing that should be consistent. I also distributed the colours of your background more as there was quite a lot of pinks mixing. I didn't have your font so I couldn't make them any bolder which are leaving the mints a bit faint obviously so if you were to use the mint, make sure to make things larger, bolder or even a bit darker. If you're going to use little gifs to decorate your blog then I think sticking to one theme or style would make it look a lot nicer. The bear you posted in an earlier blog was good so I just reused that as an example for your main picture and the donuts in your comment sections are nice.
Also your link to the thread about lolita in your latest post just directs to blogger.com. Double check your links before and after you post.
Thanks for all of the advice; I will definitely work on spacing and color distribution, as well as making my links more recognizable. As for the gif by my profile blurb, it was a personalized commission, so I doubt I'll change it. Did you find all of the other pixel art too incohesive as well? I haven't found a single artist/set that really has everything I'd like to use, but if it's really distracting or whatever I can try to limit it more.
You should keep it then. I could suggest changing the colours of the profile gif that but that's probably rude to the original artist. I just noticed it's not at it's full size though, getting it to 100% where you can see the pixels might make it more suited for the page. Fullsize is 105 x 113 and it's 100 x 100 currently.
I think the pastel "thank you" message threw me off even though it's cute because it's just different to the background and your other graphics. With http://0hmarjorie.blogspot.co.nz/2016/01/egl-wardrobe-post-update.html you have the pink bow divider which is low contrast and soft looking but the thank you gif is quite clean and bright. Personally I like the look of the thank you gif but the bows suit your background. I just see a clash in styles but I'm stupidly picky.
Also I noticed with http://0hmarjorie.blogspot.co.nz/2016/01/2016-goals-little-bears-cafe.html your divider is larger than it should be as it's at 400 x 69 where the original is 287 x 50 so I don't know if you did that on purpose or not since you can see the divider at it's 100% view on the previous link.
Just hopping in to say that I recently made an Instagram and would appreciate some gothic instas to follow. I'm going to be scanning the thread for some ones I enjoy, but feel free to follow me! I plan on posting a lot of Lolita on there, since I really don't post a whole lot on any of my other blogs, but I haven't been able to wear it much due to adjusting to a recent loss in the family. Hopefully soon, though!
Get Google analytics. Watch and see which blog posts get the most traffic and write more like them. Also, use social media to get your name out. An Instagram or Tumblr connected to your blog would be particularly good for otome.
