Thanks to every one who voted for my coords in the Coord Collage Contest!
I think I am going to be filling my tumblr with more coords collages in between outfit shots. I will still be posting my outfits, but lately I haven’t had a lot of occasions to dress up or someone to take pictures when I do. Hopefully fall/winter meets will change that - but in the meantime who doesn’t love coord collages? :)
I am working on a Sherlock coord because I am a huge Sherlockian and BBC’s Sherlock is my primary love in life outside of lolita.
Lolita fandom coords can be tricky, and honestly the majority I have seen looked tacky and costumey.
The trick is to make a lolita coord that no one outside the fandom would recognize as a fandom coord - something that follows the rules of lolita but brings in the fandom elements in a subtle manner (like the hedgehog brooch, purple shirt of sex, bee ring, ect) instead of wearing an actual deerstalker and a bulky Belstaff (which would be all wrong for the silhouette anyways).
I just bought the coat, I have everything else except a classy blue silk scarf (a wool scarf would be too casual) and the purse which I am in the process of commissioning.
I’ll post pictures when I am finished! Hopefully I can be even prettier than drunk John. :)
