Revived dolls. What do Japanese lolita look like?

The Lolita style originated in Japan many years ago. The attractive and incredibly beautiful image of a porcelain doll came to taste to many. So who are they – these cute creatures in unusual dresses who call themselves loliths?

Classical lolita The first and most important of all substrates of lolita is classical lolita. It was she who became the prototype for everyone else. Her clothes are a knee-length dress with no frills, often monophonic or with a floral print of muted or pastel colors, trimmed with ornate lace or ribbons. The shoes are designed in the same classic style as the dress. Often the image complements the umbrella cane.

Hair is always laid in a neat haircut or twisted by large curls, decorated with one large or several small bows. To make the eyes look larger and more expressive, the classical lolita resorts to the help of false eyelashes. This girl is a model of restraint, good manners and aristocratic education. She loves to embroider, plays a musical instrument, spends the evening at the book.

Candy lolita Bows, ruffles, ribbons, beads and other maiden attributes are in abundance. Candy lolita is infantile without measure, capricious, like all children, loves sweets. She adores dresses with a fruity, candy print. In her doll purse there is always a candy. Shoes both in color and design are similar to children’s.

Hairdo – curls curled in large curls. Hair color can be natural or completely unusual. Gothic lolita loves black and all its shades. The gothic-lolita dresses are trimmed with guipure and lace, decorated with ribbons. The shoes are on the platform, often elegant, but some representatives of this style prefer heavy lace-up boots.

On her jewelry and accessories there are skulls, crosses, bats and all the like. Gothic beauty tries to fall less under the sun, so that the skin retains the porcelain whiteness. In make-up, she uses false eyelashes, black and gray shades, eyeliner and eyeliner. Hair straight or curled, loose on the shoulders.

This girl rarely smiles, as if she always longs that she was not born in the Victorian or Edwardian era. Lolita Princess This Lolita is sweet and kind, a true embodiment of the princess. Her outfits are selected with taste and look very expensive. Shoes are always on a thin neat heels, often decorated with flowers. Pearls, fur, flowers, a crown – that’s what this lolita loves. Always neat, she has with her a perfectly ironed handkerchief, which, if necessary, with a graceful movement, pulls out of her purse or sleeve.

She is modest and careful, you will not hear rudeness or causticity from her. Next to such a princess must be a prince. His role can be tried on by a guy who, like the Lolita princess, is fascinated by the Victorian era and the rococo heyday. By the way, this lolita can afford to play around a little and show obstinacy, but what can you do? Has the right, because she, after all, the princess!
