52 Week Lolita Topic Challenge : My “Signature” Outfit
Today’s post from the 52 Week Lolita Topic Challenge is 48. My “signature” outfit. This is actually hard for me, because I actually haven’t been wearing what most of my friends consider my signature outfit very often lately, so I don’t have many good pictures of me actually wearing it! I think part of the issue as well is that I wear 2-3 different styles, so I sort of have a signature classic look and a signature sweet look, but they are very different (and it’s really funny to run into people who have only seen me at conventions where I almost always wear deco sweet, while I’m wearing classic and there is sort of this surprised “wait, you wear classic too?” or the opposite, which has happened too).
But I think I can safely say that my signature look is red x pink deco sweet (usually with brown twin tails). I actually was at a convention and I hadn’t told anyone I was going, I just showed up around noon-ish on Saturday and wandered until evening and that was all the longer I was there. So no one I know actually knows I went, I’m wearing this really puffy curly deep wine-ish brown wig, and I’m wearing Angelic Pretty’s Toy March JSK in wine x pink with navy and gold. I’m walking through a big room, and I hear, back over my shoulder somewhere at least 3/4 of the way across the room, someone calls my name. Now, they were behind me, I’m wearing a weird wig, and no one even knows I’m at this con. So I turn around and I’m like looking around behind me about to to just brush it off, because I have a really common name, and I just never got out of the habit of answering in public, even though it’s usually just parents calling their little kids, and there is a group with a couple lolita sitting on a sofa like, way across the room, and in that group is Cinabunnylol (this was way before we were dating; I think we had only met 2-3 times before this) who basically said she saw someone in red x pink and knew it had to be me because my wardrobe is all red x pink. Which is hilarious because it’s not totally red x pink, but that is what a bunch of people who know me well think.
For classic, I don’t have a signature look that really stands out or anything, but I do have a pretty standard casual classic look from outfit to outfit. Usually I wear wine, brown or black. Usually I wear a bolero and usually I have flowers in my hair which are usually off to the side. Usually I don’t take photos of these boring outfits, so here is one really blurry shot I took at the airport while waiting for a plane
On a side note, I keep catching myself using the term “deco sweet”, which isn’t really a common term. It’s just my own personal short-hand for “Things that range from OTT Sweet Lolita to Deco Lolita that has more order to how the accessories are arranged”.
