First and foremost, I just want to thank everyone who follows my comic, I am so happy that you are not only entertained by my mini comics but can relate greatly. Your comments encourage me to make more comics, and find even more excuses to wear lolita (even if it's just to go to market).
Anyhoo, to thank everyone for following my comic blog, I will be hosting a contest...
How to enter:
It's quite simple really, you have to simply comment this entry with a time you were inspired by fashion. It sounds rather vague, but it could be the time you were inspired to wear lolita, gyaru whatever. Or when you were thinking of leaving lolita but something held you back. Something that inspired you to wear the clothes you wear.
This isn't a strictly lolita contest, anyone can enter describing any fashion style, or just fashion!
1. Comment below with your Nickname
2. Don't forget to write down your inspiration story
3. You must be a follower!
Me and a handful of friends, will read through all your stories and select 1 winner whom we felt inspired by or whom has touched our hearts with your story, so take your time to write everything you need to.
The winner will be in the next comic, either in lolita or in other fashion styles (depending on your fashion background gyaru, fairy-kei etc) and will receive an art commission from me ( with a choice of chibi, digital, traditional, full body etc).
I know it's nothing fancy for a prize, but I really want to keep the focus on the comic since this is what this blog is all about.
Lolita Fashion, not to be confused by the book Lolita, is a fashion style based in Japan, that is influenced by European fashions from yesteryears. It has NOTHING to do with the book. It is a common misconception.
Lolita involves wearing full cupcake/a-line skirts, dresses, jumperskirts, and brings a sense of modesty and even cuteness in the outfit.
To be honest, this description doesn't even scratch the iceberg of what Lolita is all about.
These comics reflect what happens in real life as I step out in Lolita attire. Like many Lolitas, I encounter positive, as well as negative and even odd situations. This comic is to enlighten readers and fellow Lolitas of my adventures in frills and bloomers.
Some of the drawings may be an exaggeration (pink buildings multicolored shadow people), but the idea behind each comic is true and has happened to me in real life.
I am Oli, short for Olivia. I am known on EGL (the lolita community on live journal) as Lemontree11.
I have been wearing lolita for over 2-3 years. Just like many starting lolitas, I lurked the communities and the first time I wore lolita in public it was with a friend. I was not as confident to wear lolita alone, but the more i learned and grew with the fashion, the more confident I became to go out in lolita.
Unfortunately I do not wear lolita as often but even if it is to run an errand or when ever the opportunity arises, I will wear lolita, even alone. Though, do not forget that sometimes, it's always more fun to go out with other fellow lolitas.
The objective of making this webcomic is to present both sides of Lolita. What it takes to wear lolita in public through random occurances that take place in my personal life. There are positive as well as negative aspects of wearing lolita in public (especially alone).
Hopefully, many of these comics, will inspire the starting lolita to step out of the closet and walk the streets confident in herself. As well, as keep on inspiring ongoing lolitas to be the best and most fashionable girls that they can be!
