Dressing in lolita out in public is not easy. Surely you have heard the stories of lolitas who are ridiculed and occasionally threatened by people not comfortable with our style. And it takes courage for any one of us to be able to dress up and face the world in our frills and lace.
This is most assuredly true for any and all brolitas. In a world where a lolita is hardly accepted, how much more when it is a guy donning a petticoat and a dress. So today I am going to help present you some situations which I have been involved in and some pro tips that could help you out.
Ah so after much gnashing of teeth and really no idea where to go with it, I have decided not to post anything on makeup and accessories. Besides, you can always call up a gal pal who will hopefully teach you the ways of picking the right makeup and applying it.
Instead, I will talk about going to a meet. Seems pretty basic I know. You up and move your ruffle butt over to wherever the meet is being held and you join in on the festivities. But I could understand there being some anxiousness over being a brolita and meeting a group of girls for the first time. Well, I am here to help guide you to your first meet.
There are many steps I take when it comes to dressing in lolita. It is not enough to just throw on a dress and not really think about all the other important aspects of an outfit. There are a good few steps I take that help me create and maintain the female silhouette.
One of my transformations that I posted on EGL a couple months ago.
There are several important components to a lolita outfit. But I feel that hair style is one of most basic and most important components for a brolita. It is usually the centerpiece of my outfits and many times it is the wig that will determine which lolita outfit I am inspired to wear that day. From my early days to my most current days, I have always made hair one of my top priority aspects of an outfit.
Disclaimer: I by no mean claim to be an expert on the matter. But I would like to think that I pull off the look pretty well and that this can go on to help other guys pull off the magical transformation that makes us feel beautiful to the world.
I have always enjoyed sharing the history of how I became a lolita. And mine started the same way that many others started: Coming across a picture of Mana and falling in love with what he was wearing.
Listening to the Buccaneers radio broadcast during the game is funny XD
But on a serious note: How about them Falcons? Those 6 picks they traded to the Browns isn't looking like such a good idea *not that it was to begin with*
Those Chargers.... really know how to pull defeat from the jaws of victory. They play a Chiefs team that generated a whopping 40 yards of offense in the first half and essentially played with little offensive punch. Yet the Chiefs were in that game till the very end.
Are the Bills for real? They might be. 3-0 and coming off a win against the Patriots. That's huge. They might be this year's surprise team.
It seems Philly's dream team isn't so dreamy after all. Back to back weeks, they give up 25+ points.
The Raiders seem to have borrowed a page out of the Jaguars 2007 playoff season: Run, run, run, and make sure your QB doesn't turn over the ball. So far, they seem to be doing it to perfection. Their reward: 2-1, with their lone loss coming from the Bills and their 3-0 season.
All those years of NFL doormat may finally be over for the Detroit Lions and today they demonstrated why: Down 20-0 at half, they came back to win 26-23. At 3-0 the Lions may finally have a chance to be a legitimate contender for the playoffs.
You heard right. I am establishing a blog to help express the random ramblings that I feel must be put down somewhere.
Random ramblings? What exactly do I mean by that? Well its just as it sounds: blogging about any sort of topic that I happen to be enjoying that day. That topic can be lolita, football, gaming, movies...
Yes, no one topic will be overly represented. This will help keep the staleness at bay and hopefully allow me to not get bored and stop blogging :3
