Lolification and where to draw the line

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on October 14, 2010 by dollpart

This is something a lot of lolita blogs, communities and lolitas themselves debate over. The general conciseness is that there is a time, place and a limit to what you can lolify but when you get right down to it you will usually do as you choose and hopefully not as the group dictates you should.

Lolitas aren’t the only ones who try and put lolita in everything. For example, Metalocalypse stars Dethklok endevour to make everything METAL, Blacker than the blackest black times infinity- and often the results are brutal in a bad way.

 

DIE FOR DETHKLOK

DIE FOR DETHKLOK - or attempt to lolify them

 

Of course Murderface would be ita as all hell. (Excuse my terrible drawing skills, I’ve spent six years in art school progressively getting stupider somehow)

The division is usually over common sense things – a cute casual outfit for a short walk in a park vs forcing OTT decora elements into an outfit intended for a 10k hike, adding ruffles to a plain white work shirt for a casual day/work clothing vs deconstructing a whole starbucks uniform just so it can fit a petti under it.

Lolita is not the only subculture that has to tone it down for work, a lot of my goth, alternative friends leave the 6 inch creepers and corsets out of their office jobs but they’ll wear pentagram cuff links or simply keep their palate to blacks and whites. Office Goth was born out of a need to work to pay for endless gin and tonics, ridiculous shoes and capes – depending on your workplace the rules can be relaxed and you can rock up as OTT as you want to, the Goth in the Office for example is an inverview with the amazingly outfitted Jillian Vetters working at Microsoft.

Most Classic brands have dresses that work well without pettis and with non lolita shoes and accessories – the ultimate challenge is de-lolifying something inherently loli to fit the situation at hand.

Work outfits aside, other things like school work, cars, pets, toilets and what ever can stay still long enough for you to pin a bow on it on the other hand I personally go buy these guidelines.

1. Will this thing be used by anyone but me?
2. Will the loilfication process impede my using of the item?
3.  Will it void a warranty, cause damage or lower the resale value through its lolification?
4. Will it be safe to use after modification?
5. Do I have permission to modify it?

Generally an answer of:

1.  Yes
2.  No
3.  No
4. Yes
5. Yes

– means you can cram as many bows on a thing as it can handle.

In other news me and some of the other lolitas caught up at my favorite thing on earth – the Brisbane Suitcase Rummage! The idea is you haul out a couple of suitcases worth of your vintage, second hand, hand made and unique things and sell, trade, haggle for them, I know I always come away with tonnes of clothing, jewelery and stuff I never knew I wanted till I found it!

Here’s me and Xelyna

Huzzah! 80 000 hits!

Frills and an urge to Kill

Alice is Dead. Long Live Lolita

That’s just a very rough drawing I did in a book and hopefully will paint as a proper oil painting miniature. I like the visual of lolitas doing active things even if those things are violent as opposed to the passive, sit there and look pretty thing seen in most lolita drawings/art.

The first day of the Loli weekend was the big day meet there was a good turn out. Filming was a little different but we’re all very much used to being photographed and looked at especially when in a group. We met at King George Square where we were all interviewed as a group about people’s reactions to seeing us as a group, there was a parasol fight (to the death, Star Trek battle theme plays in background) purikura and drinks at Fat Louies to celebrate Suze’s birthday.

ROCK THE HELL OUT!

FOR THOSE ABOUT TO ROCK. WE SALUTE YOU.

I’m the one in the middle looking like a true chumpette – Outfit by Bodyline, Metamorphose, Enchantress and whatever I could find rolling around my bedroom floor.

Havin’ it Large! Brisbane Loli Weekend.

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on April 30, 2010 by dollpart

Tomorrow is the start of the Brisbane Loli weekend (and uh Labor Day weekend to ease the come down of course XD) which is being held to film some of our shenanigans for our good friend Goldie’s documentation of Lolita subculture.

Tomorrow it’s our traditional watering hole of Fat Louis – happy hour drinks and Karaoke. Not only is Fat Louis cheap, it’s also a rather dingy and awful little bar, the awfulness is part of its charm really and there are worse pubs and clubs out there. In between the shots of Chamord and ribaldry I’ll blog bits and pieces and try and have photographs too!

Drink, Smoke and be Lolita

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on April 29, 2010 by dollpart

There is the pervasive myth on what the Western lolita “should” be – as in a code of behavior – which is prim, proper and passive. That Lolitas shouldn’t drink, smoke, swear or be jerks. I personally think that’s a load of bullshit because at the end of the day people in the lolita subculture are human. It’s a good thing usually to keep the profanities down to a minimum, keep your liver in tact so someone else could one day use it/eat it to gain your power and keep the tobacco smoke out of your expensive garments but fucked if I could be bothered really.

On Drinking
Chambord Liquer is pretty much the most lolita of all boozes, it’s even got a crown on it! Chambord is made from raspberries, blackberries, Madagascar vanilla, Moroccan citrus peel, honey and cognac and tastes great in cocktails. My personal favorite being lime juice, Chambord and lemonade and if you’re feeling extra blasphemous try the Blood of Christ cocktail, Chambord, Triple Sec, Grand Mariner and grenadine.

Chambord

The Loliest of all Boozes

For the beer drinkers, branch out and try some local or international brews, for the homebrewers out there I put to you a challenge – create Lolibrau – a beer for lolitas, by lolitas and now with even MOAR BOWS.

On Smoking
The latest trend right now is eCigarettes – battery powered cigarettes that vaporize nicotine into vapour with no tar or smoke – you can smoke those bad boys anywhere and come in a variety of flavours. For the tradiontional smoker who wants to colour co-ordinate I’d recommend Fantasias, Sobranie Coctails and Black Russians.

Fantasias

Fantasias

Sobraine is one of the oldest cigarette companies in the world and also make a rainbow coloured ciagrette known as Sobraine Coctails as well as the distinctive Black Russians which have a black paper covering.

Sorbaine Cocktails

Sorbaine Cocktails - and you thought AP was way pastel

I like the occasional Clove for the taste, Black Devils too when Sobranies are not in the budget but for the most part I stick to Marlboro Reds and Benson and Hedges Classic.

We all have vices, at the very least you can get your vices to match your hand bag and never apologize for having flair or taste ladies.
