I decided to join Lolita Blog Carnival in hopes of getting inspiration to post more - and something else than my outfits and purchases, too. I've suffered from a serious case of writers block lately, and have found it difficult to find new interesting topics and things to post about anymore, after so many years of blogging. So, let's hope this works and things here will turn to better from now on!
Without further bablings, on to the topic of the day: book inspired coordinations! I'm very happy that this is my first LBC post, because I have always loved reading and books inspire me endlessly. I chose three books from my (quite long) favourite list and did some coords based on them.
The Lord of the Rings - Arwen
When I started to think about how Arwen would look if she wore lolita, my first thought was that she would be as graceful and delicate as she is in elven wear. Naturally Arwen would choose a grey dress, as that colour suits her complexion so well, and for an elven girl a flower print is a must. She would perhaps coordinate a chiffon blouse with flowing butterfly sleeves to her outfit, and in her head she would wear an ornate headdress with pearls to remind us of her elvish roots.
The Last Unicorn - Lady Amalthea
The Last Unicorn, or as she is called in her unfortunate human form, Lady Amalthea, doesn't really care for clothes. Nor does she have a purse, because unicorns don't need any earthy posessions. While trapped in this human body, which she can feel rotting around her as we speak, she still has to wear something. I believe her choice of dress would be something quite simple and elegant. After all she is so breathtakingly beautiful that she could just let her natural beauty shine instead of wearing complicated gowns. She would perhaps wear a black headband in contrast to her long, silvery white hair, and maybe some matching shoes. The unicorn pendant could be a gift from the desparate prince who loves her, not knowing that she is really a unicorn and can not feel love.
The Harry Potter Series - A Girl from Slytherin
I know Harry Potter themed lolita is nothing new, but as I love the book series, I couldn't help choosing this theme to a one more round. I like to play with the Gryffindor and Slytherin houses - not because they necessarily are my favorites, or not even because I'd be in either one of them - but simply because they have the most dazzling colours!
This outfit is something an ambitious, driven and cunning, but also a very pretty girl from Slytherin could wear for school lessons, or a visit to Hogsmeade, or even to a secret date with that nice boy from Gryffindor. This outfit is simple, but not boring in the least. It includes practical opaque thighs, but also quirky shoes; a smart simple dress, but with beautiful little details; a spaceous bag for all those big books, but also a cute headband.
