30 Day Lolita Challenge – Day 3

Day 3 – 10 things you hate dislike in lolita.

  1. Toy prints
    I will never be able to appreciate toy/kiddy-style prints. We’re already wearing fashion that leaves us open to a lot of ridicule for being child-like, why add to it with prints and bonnets that make us look even more like children?

    As much as I love Angelic Pretty, I’ll be the first to admit that AP is the worst perpetrator of this style of prints.

  2. Poodle prints
    It’s something about the poodle itself that I don’t like, seen in a couple of brands like Emily Temple Cute, Baby, AP, Meta and IW. *irrational dislike* I also had some problems dealing with prints like Cherry Berry Bunny and Little Lady, but I can’t say that animals are what gets my goat (oh pun, pun!) because I do like the woodland animal-style prints that we see on IW and Meta. Like I said, this dislike is pretty irrational. 😳

  3. Seasonal prints
    I would never buy any because I don’t see another occasion to wear them other than that particular festival! I’m referring to prints like Twinkle Ornament, Happy Garden and Halloween Alice, which are only meant for a certain occasion!

  4. Cost
    🙁 I guess I don’t need to say much about this. I really am heartbroken that lolita brand pieces can cost so much. My value of money has really dropped after getting into loli!

  5. Scalpers
    I really don’t like scalpers! Yes, I understand rare prints can cost more on the secondhand market, but please don’t buy something and then resell it for triple the price after to make a killing. I see this very often for Moitie and AP prints!

  6. Impracticality
    I’m sad that I can’t wear lolita everyday, or even just very often. Sometimes it’s the weather, sometimes it’s because we don’t have time, most often it’s because people here are not used to girls dressing up and think that we’re some sort of freaks when we go out.

  7. When things get too frilly
    Lolita is about frills, but keep it tasteful please! Some AP and Meta pieces send me running, and one brand that always makes me go AUGH! is Marble! Marble has gotten much better recently though, I must say.

  8. Print replicas
    I don’t want to start a debate here, and yes, I know all the arguments for having replicas (custom sizes, more easily accessible, cheaper, etc) but I think I will never buy a brand print replica, no matter how lovely or close to the original it looks. Once again, to each their own!

  9. Cosplay in lolita
    I don’t know how to title this. I don’t really mean anime tie-ups, because sometimes that can be good for both the anime and the brand. (Innocent World x Gosick and BPN x Kuroshitsuji come to mind). But occasionally, there are collabs that result in something that is totally out of the lolita silhouette. Such as Meta’s Macross Frontier collaboration and the Vocaloid collection. It boggles the mind!

  10. People who have to pass comments AT me when I’m in loli
    Okay, I know it’s inevitable that people will stare. I know that people will comment on what I’m wearing to the friends they’re with. I’m almost immune to all of that, and I’m not going to deny that lolita is a very attention-grabbing fashion. But, I really get infuriated when immature teens gang up on me to shout idiotic and moronic comments like “HELLO PRINCESS” or “WHERE ARE YOU GOING, ALICE?” in that very annoying manner. Like seriously, I don’t laugh at you for wearing shorts and slippers downtown, or wearing your hat only halfway on your head, so you shut up and turn the **** around. (Excuse my French, @#&$*$!! 😳 )

Eeeeeeee, sorry for the ranty stuff, especially for the last one! XD
