Deco Box

Hello all! I just wanted to show you one of my latest creations. I think deco sweets are so adorable and have always wanted to try my hand at it. This is my first time trying and I think it turn out well. I have to practice my piping though. But I can't wait to start my next project!

Classic VS Sweet: Or My Internal Conflict

For some reason unknown to me Lolita sisters (Classic and Sweet particularly OTT) are feuding. As each launches verbal bombs against the other and some avid supporters of each side churn out some pretty hilarious comics. I have to but sit on the fence about the whole issue, wondering am I the only Lolita that like all 3+ styles? In all honesty if I had a massive wardrobe I'd probably be substyle jumping on a whim. I have always loved Gothic fashion (not just the Loli kind), Historical fashions (Victorian, Rococo, Marie Antoinette, Edwardian, et al) way before I ever set eyes on Lolita fashion. And when I did first see the wonders of the Lolita realm, while watching the oh so adorable Miwako from Paradise Kiss, I thought that OTT sweet was the way of this fashion. I discovered Gothic Lolita after a little more research on the topic. I learned of Mary Magdalene (brand), and consequently Classic Lolita, through a fashion download for the Sims 2. I was struck down like Momoko from Kamikaze Girls (sans the ability to lie to get the money for Loli) by all of Lolita (though I never really liked Grotesque Lolita, it is beautiful in it own right but not for me.) I love the beauty of all Lolita styles the 3 main and the emerging styles (mori lolita, fairy lolita et al) and will probably keep jumping around styles and perhaps even mix it with others. That's the fun of fashion.... Right?
