It can be wack, I remember how I was when I started, it seemed like rules were everywhere. It made me moody left and right. I still happily break some rules in lolita because I got in it for me. Spank is pretty cool.I think mori girl and dolly kei are the new waves. It's what you make of it, especially since every style has its rules and elitists.

i dont know if i am a fan of the lolita community anymore. dont get me wrong i LOOOVE the fashion. but the pretentiousness and dogmatic rules you have to follow is beyond irritating to me. i respect the japanese fashion because correlates with their culture and the way they dress in all genres of fashion not just lolita but ....its just not me. i dance to the beat of my own drum. i guess i like spank more because its way more open ended. however i love the way it looks and how it promotes a non sexual confidence ladies look fabulous at the end of day anyway

Thank you for the criticism! Although I was more inspired by the Lolita THEME for these costumes because the convention was super last minute and I put these outfits together from my closet. I was super broke and could only afford some things lol. Thank you for the sites though because i need affordable lolita dresses! I plan on doing it for real this year at anime weekend atlanta.

Oh you looked very nice, Cassian! The hair looks great! But I do have some constructive criticism but if you don't want to read it, you can just stop here, I'll try not to make it a wall of text.

pic 1 - Not really considered lolita for it does not really have the shape. Now, the top could stay but mainly if you were doing Punk or Ero style (Ero is stretching it) but nothing of what you have on is in the Gothic Lolita vein. The skirt would have to go because it is too short, especially for lolita. It's pretty much a tutu, not a petticoat. Even though Ero is more forgiving of short things, it's usually bloomers, cage skirts, basically Victorian/Lolita undergarments. The shoes look great tho.

pic 2/3 - Harsher lolitas would describe it as "ita". Too short, bad lace, no poof (tho some lolitas would challenge that poof isn't always needed, but it does not mean there should be no fluff). It would be best to scrap the whole thing and get more appropriate dress or skirt, I think I put a shopping guide in this group so you can definitely look around on tao bao or Bodyline or even EGL_comm_sales for affordable stuff.

I recently attended Nashicon and dressed as a lolita for a bit. Lolita is one of my favorite things to dress up as, especially gothic lolita. Cant wait to do it again. :3
