Quem sabe eu tente costurar algo este ano… Eu já costurei algumas coisas bem meh, mas nada como um vestido lolita. Talvez eu comece fazendo uma versão de bonecas pra ver se a construção dá certo lol
Sage for portuguese and derailing.
Garota, achei que o dólar estava abaixo de dois reais e fui correndo falar aqui pro pessoal de casa. Eu não tenho nenhum conhecimento de costura, eu mal sei dar pontos… Então pelo menos tu tens algo pra começar! Quem sabe dá certo!
Okay, back to english (':
I didn't know where to post this so forgive me if it's in the wrong place.
I couldn't afford Lolita style when I was younger but now I am older it's something I'd like to wear for special events/parties/cons etc. However, I'm worried my age may be an issue, and I'll just look dumb. I don't really like sweet style, I prefer classical, but even then I feel maybe I've just missed the opportunity as I'm in my late twenties now. It's annoying because I can afford it now but I feel people are more forgiving to younger people dressing differently.
It probably doesn't help that I've been on ~certain sites~ over the years so my auto response is that everyone is gonna be a massive bastard. Advice pls, I can take brutal honesty too so don't worry.
It is harder to be a (popular)lolita if you're over 25 but there are plenty of older women who wear it. The founder/designer of Innocent World (Yumi Fujiwara) looks to be in her mid 30's and still wears lolita almost every day.
Really, though you'll only get shit if you post pictures online of yourself blatantly being an ita. And even if you are an ita at first (everyone kind of is) the internet loves redemption stories.
If you are worried about people being bastards about your coords, you can just not post them to COF or the Everyday Frills group until you feel more confident about your outfits. Maybe just post to Instagram or your blog?
I'm in a similar boat to you, where I wasn't able to afford lolita until my mid-to-late 20s. But life is short so may as well give it a shot. Classic Lolita is easier to get away with when you're older anyway, since it usually isn't covered in pastel teddy bears and candy. I really like Sweet Lolita, but gravitate to florals and more elegant prints.
