I’ve been wanting to draw a few things about Lolitas lately, as in the Japanese fashion trend, not the novel. It’s a fashion trend I adore, because it’s basically like small pockets of history, walking around, inspired by Rococo and Victorian fashion and design.
I wanted to draw two posters, one showing the different types of Lolitas, and the other showing the proper layering required to achieve the Lolita look. So far, i’ve only done the “type” one, but it’s a good start!
Technically, only 4 “types” are actual types, the others are more like themes. The main 4 types are classic, punk, gothic and sweet.
I never had the courage to dress up as a lolita myself, but I love looking at all the magazines…
