Lolita fashion is a huge part of my life. Much of my spare time involves Lolita fashion in some capacity. In addition to this blog and my YouTube channel, many of my other activities center around Lolita. I draw it, dress my dolls in it, and create my own jewelry and charm pieces to compliment my wardrobe. When I have a few free minutes, I often check on the latest items being sold on ClosetChild, LaceMarket and brand name online Lolita shops. My most used smartphone application in addition to Twitter and YouTube is Amino, as I am very involved with multiple Lolita groups there!
I love this fashion. I love being able to see other people's coordinates, searching for new accessories, and learning about the latest releases. I actively teach myself new skills, such as photography and sewing, in order to enjoy my passion for Lolita fashion even more! The ability to express myself so loudly with my distinctive clothes is a wonderful and fantastic opportunity that I cherish deeply!
I have a lot of hobbies and interests. Many times however, these particular interests are not topics I discuss with everyone, or topics I do not speak of in certain social situations. These feelings are completely normal, even if it feels uncomfortable or awkward at times. Regardless, I have grown substantially when it comes to sharing my fashion with others. While it is much easier to answer inquiries when I am dressed in the fashion, I do not typically have an opportunity to wear Lolita around the people I converse with on a day-to-day basis. Between my blog, business and YouTube channel, it is difficult to hide my passion from everyone. Now that I have become more secure with myself, I find that the ability to open up and speak about my interest in J-fashion is much easier!
I am a lot of things, in addition to being a Lolita. I am a Lolita, Cosplayer, Artist, Writer, Business Owner, Video-game Enthusiast, Otaku, BJD Collector, Fiancee, Daughter, Disney Enthusiast and more. While Lolita has been, and will continue to play an important role in my life, I have many titles that reflect what my interests are and, while Lolita may be the hobby I am most passionate about, it does not define me. I am so much more than just a Sweet Lolita. If I ever decided to move past my interest in Lolita fashion, I would still be my own creative, quirky, romantic, magical and girly self.
What role does Lolita fashion play in your identity? Would you still be "you" without Lolita?
