Something to do when the weather warms up a bit.

I really like the term “Fashion Otaku”

I’m not just some weeaboo who likes clothes just because they come out of Japan. I’m not into high fashion as an art form. I just want to obsess over release years and talk about trend theories and scour archived websites looking for the the first release date of a particular design.

fuck this girl scares the crap outta me aLSO SHE’S DEAD FUCK THIS I’M GOING TO HAVE NIGHTMARES

NO, she is NOT dead. I have no idea who told you this, but they are wrong.
You can’t get dead bodies to stand, and they would certainly never have posed her like this ever.
This is a picture of an Edwardian girl who is ALIVE and standing by her bike and dog.

I wish there was a tag specifically for lolita fashion related chatter. Opinions, questions, discussions, etc.

fyeahlolita:

I enjoy reading people’s text posts about the Lolita fashion on tumblr, but they are such a minority compared to image posts that it’s nearly impossible to find them by just browsing the keywords (not even taking into account all the other stuff in the “Lolita” tags).

I propose we start a tag just for Lolita fashion related discussion on Tumblr, in an effort to make the Lolita community on Tumblr more like an actual community. Unless someone has a more elegant solution, even just the tag “lolita talk" would do the trick, as it doesn’t seem like it’s overtaken by anything and a few people have naturally already decided to use it.

Dammit, I ALWAYS accidentally just double reblog this when I mean to post it on my personal blog xD

Anyways, any of my Lolita followers up for using the tag “lolita talk" for Lolita related discussions? Not outfit snaps or photo collages or that sort of thing, but just whatever thoughts they have on the subject. Comments, complaints, ramblings, musings, essays, etc.
